While the world was busy saying hello to the new Apple Watch and iPhone 6, Apple quietly said farewell to one of its most iconic products, the iPod classic. Indeed, after nearly 13 years on the market, the device that defined and dominated the portable music player industry is no more.
I am a huge fan of Mophie products and picked up a Juice Pack Air for the older iPhone 3G/3GS. This is a mini review.
Unlocking an iPhone in the UK isn’t always as easy you might think. Sometimes it’s impossible. Here’s why.
Have no mobile data? Here is the third and final instalment in my using only free WiFi on your smartphone.
As a fan of the Mophie Juice Pack Plus – a case with built in rechargeable battery -I wanted to see how the Juice Pack Air compared.
Mobile phones might have advanced in the past few years, but the batteries powering them haven’t. The biggest complaint from smartphone owners is battery life. Smartphones today can do just about everything, but to get some of them to last a whole day without running out of battery you have to turn most of the […]
Apple’s 2014 World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) brought much anticipated news of the next versions of Mac OS X and iOS. I sum up their main features.
I recently brought an original iPhone back from the brink, but it had audio issues. This article shows how to fix the reversed audio issue.
Apple really overhauled iOS when it released version 7 last year with better multitasking, improved background processing, scheduled connectivity, optimized memory use, and a cleaner, lighter looking interface. What can we expect from iOS 8?
I really dislike throwing out any tech kit. If it can be saved, I will do my best to revive it and reuse it. Recently I saved an original iPhone from certain doom.
With another “well duh” headline, Cult of Mac told us yesterday, Survey Finds Battery Life Is Most Important for iPhone Owners. Didn’t the fact that we use 3.5″ and 4″ smartphones while the Android world has gone bigger kind of make that obvious?
Last July I looked at the then-current Facebook app, compared it with using Safari to view Facebook, and found the app lacking. Today I’m looking at the latest version, 5.0, and comparing it with three different browsers using my iPhone 4S running iOS 7.1.1.
I have a friend who has so far survived while living a smartphone- and tablet-free life. He is thinking of getting some small device to give him Internet access of the go. He quoted a mutual friend – an iPhone owner – who said that he got an iPad “because the apps are better”.
Apple are not the only ones updating their mobile OS with a massive ‘point one’ update; the whited00r team have just released 7.1 – and I check it out.
In early 2013, I reviewed the Mophie Juice Pack Plus for the iPhone 4 and 4s. I take another look at it and this time see how it performs under iOS 7.
Looking ahead at what 2014 and 2015 could bring for iPhone and iOS users, here are my thoughts.
When Apple released the iPhone 5, it came with a new design of earphones called EarPods. I recently bought a pair – but are they worth their money?
Apple released iOS 7 in September 2013, the boldest new version of iOS since its initial introduction in 2007, featuring a whole new look for the first time. But where Apple leaves behind, the whited00r team picks up.
Are you new to jailbreaking? Should you crack open Apple’s wonderful iDevice operating system or leave it as Apple intended?
iOS 7 jailbreaking is finally here, courtesy of the evad3rs team.
A few weeks back, I experimented with turning off mobile data and relying on WiFi only on my iPhone. Today I repeated it; this time I was a little more prepared.
It was pretty exciting news when Apple made it possible to install older versions of iOS apps on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, but if you’ve tried to download a new app that requires a newer OS than your device has, you’ve probably been stumped.
Would you like an iPhone but cannot justify the high price tag? Don’t need all the bells and whistles of a new one? If you think an older one might suits your needs take a look at the 3GS.
The iPhone grew out of the iPod, Apple’s first digital music player launched well over a decade ago. Listening to music was the reason the iPod existed, and Apple wanted to make sure that its iPhone (and later iPod touch and iPad) did it well.
If you don’t have a data allowance on your iPhone or other mobile phone, could you survive by just relying on places offering free WiFi?
Apple surprised everyone by finally offering ‘last compatible’ versions for those running an older iOS. But is there a flaw in this?
When Apple introduced the iPhone 5S, it brought the first 64-bit smartphone to market – and Samsung immediately promised that it would have 64-bit in its next generation as well. But what’s the point of a 64-bit processor in a smartphone?
I love my iPhone 4, but I must admit to having iPhone 5c envy. Jazz your older iPhone up with a colourful look.
Earlier this week, Apple changed its App Store policy to allow older versions to be downloaded. This policy has since been updated.
