We’ve been talking a lot lately about the perks and perils of Microsoft Office, especially the program you begrudgingly used to write your college papers: Word. In what appears to be an unrelated move, Apple just made a whole host of productivity apps free. Get excited for Pages! (Borat voice: “Not!”)
A tough truth about Apple is making headlines this week, and you’d better hold on to your butts, because it is salacious. Apparently, Apple is snatching up all the very best trees for its new campus, leaving local tree purchasers scrambling for solutions.
Correction: The original version of this post falsely claimed that the next version of iOS—10.3.2—would drop support for the iPhone 5 and 5c. The beta version of 10.3.2 available to people with Apple developer accounts includes a build compatible with the iPhone 5 and 5c, and there is no reason to believe that the…
After years (and years) of waiting, today is the day that we get to see Apple’s new MacBook Pros. The laptop line will reportedly get a major upgrade, including new processors, a fancy OLED display above the keyboard, and fewer ports. Fewer ports!
It used to be relatively cheap and easy to upgrade to the latest iPhone. Just renew your contract and get a new phone. Now that carriers are phasing out contracts, however, getting your paws on an iPhone 7 is going to cost you. But it doesn’t have to break the bank.
Apple’s slow creep towards becoming a health company just made a little progress with the acquisition of Gliimpse, a personal health data startup. It’s unclear what Apple plans to do with the company, but I have a free idea for Tim Cook: Let me control my health records on an iPhone. It could save my life.
Years after announcing HomeKit, Apple finally announced an all-in-one smarthome solution. It’s an app called Home, and it sounds… fine.
It feels like it’s 2001. Tons of companies had released tons of MP3 players, and they all sucked. The iPod was just months away.
So you’ve probably heard that Apple just had its worst quarter since 2003. Not as many people are buying iPhones as they used to, and Team Tim Cook didn’t make as many bajillion dollars as it usually does. Sad!
At today’s Apple event, executive Phil Schiller called people who own computers that are more than five years old “sad.” That was a silly thing to say, Phil!
As it often does in the springtime, Apple is hosting a splashy event today, where everyone expects to see some new products. The most intriguing rumored new member of the family will be a 4-inch iPhone SE for people with tiny hands as well as a smaller iPad Pro for pretty much anyone with hands.
Apple just took its next swipe in the fight over unlocking a terrorist’s iPhone: a court order to vacate. The company is invoking the First and Fifth Amendments to argue that the court order it received to create a back door for the device is unconstitutional. The motion is embedded below.
Apple charged out of the weekend ready to wage war with the FBI over a court order to unlock a terrorist’s iPhone. In a memo to staff, Tim Cook proposed the formation of a government commission to settle the matter. The feds, for their part, show no clear signs of backing down from the order.
Apple, like many other companies, is infamous for funneling money through its European headquarters in Ireland and benefitting from a lower tax rate. Well, Italy’s had enough of it, and Apple just agreed to pay the boot-shaped country $348 million in back taxes. Tim Cook must be pissed.
My initial reaction to Apple’s expensive new iPhone battery case was in step with the everyone else’s: It looks like it has a tumor. But what I discovered after using it for a full day is it’s actually surprisingly great.
I love Apple’s new accessories new. The Magic Keyboard is a beautiful work of industrial design and surprisingly fun for typing. The Magic Mouse 2 looks the same as its predecessor, but it’s rechargeable. And that, I’m afraid, is a blessing and a curse.
Buying a set-top box changed the way I watched everything through my TV. I’ve tried many stream machines but avoided the Apple TV since its walled garden undermined that “everything” detail, but I was sure that the much buzzed upgrade would change my mind. After using it for a week, I’m not as confident.
Hey taco fan! The latest version of iOS is out, and you should download it so that you can send your friends that new taco emoji. You can also send a burrito, robot, unicorn, nerd, cheese, and scorpion emoji—among others.
