apple-china_think-differentLove them or hate them it seems as though Apple is making inroads into one of the largest smartphone markets in the world. The new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus has the technological media and consumers polarised, on the one hand this will probably be the most successful iPhone in history and on the other end the device is plagued by issues like “bendgate”. But as with any potentially successful product, the proof is in the pudding, or the sales figures for that matter. The Cupertino company has always had a firm footing in the US, but now it seems as though they might just take the largest market of them all. (more…)

apple-gavel-600x318With the recent wave of patent wars and the secrecy behind new technology we have seen more and more legal challenges as companies seek to protect their IP which will give their products the advantage in the market. Recently Apple has also imposed tight restrictions on what its suppliers can say. This move came in an effort to stop smaller leaks within the Apple production line which has many moving parts. Any company that leaks a product, or starts boasting about being a component producer for Apple will be slapped with a $50 million fine. (more…)

My first reaction when reading about the Finnish Prime Minister saying that Apple has killed off the Scandinavian county’s two biggest industries was “What is the second?” Of course, Apple had a big role to play in the downfall of Nokia (although it wasn’t the only contributing factor), but in my ignorance I couldn’t think of another industry Apple could affect so adversely.

itunes-12-aboutIt seems as though Apple wants to turn over a new leaf in 2014. We have already seen them break out of the “small” smartphone mould with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Apple is also set to launch the all new iPad Air2 this week and they have already debuted the new Mac OS X Yosemite. Since the release of iOS 7 we have seen design overhauls across the iphone, iPad and Mac devices, but iTunes Store remained relatively unaffected until now. (more…)

According to Apple, iOS 8 upgrades have slowed to a crawl

Published by on Oct 8th, 2014, 8 Comments


With iOS 8 being released right after the launch of the iPhone 6, Apple was once again expecting people to flock to its new operating system on all devices that support it. Unfortunately, the initial release was buggy to say the least.

Apple quickly rolled out an updated version, iOS 8.0.2, but it still seems that Apple users aren’t taking to iOS 8 in the same way as its predecessors. (more…)

Tim Cook

Until now we have only received vague dates for the new iPad launches, with many pointing to mid-October. Now, finally, we have some concrete evidence that we the new iPads will be launching on October 16th.

Both the new iPad Air and iPad Mini is expected on this date, but we may also be seeing something new from Apple. A wild card for the event would be the 12.9-inch iPad Pro which has long been rumoured for early 2015 but as we know from the Apple Watch, Tim Cook isn’t shy about announcing new categories early.
