Its time for the Apple WWDC again and this year is no excpetion for the rumours and expected announcements.
Apple are either being very clever or very silly.
I have a theory – and it involves Google taking over the (digital) world.
The red iPhone 7 and 7 Plus differ from other models in colour only.
Apple has launched a red version of its iPhone 7 and 7 Plus as well as a new video app for iOS.
The red iPhone celebrates Apple’s 10-year partnership with Red, an organisation that aims to combat Aids.
Apple is expected to replace current 3D Touch technology with a new design based on thin film sensors when it introduces a next-generation iPhone with OLED display, according to noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Apple’s next generation iPhone will feature a wraparound OLED 5.8-inch display with integrated fingerprint sensor, according to a research note from Cowen and Company. Additionally, the phone is expected to include some “form of facial/gesture recognition”.
Damn! I feel old. AT&T has confirmed that it has shut down 2G services in the US. So if you live there and your phone only makes GSM calls and uses EDGE for data – like the Original iPhone (AKA iPhone 2G), you’re stuck with only WiFi as the only option. The move won’t hurt very many people (even basic phones have been using 3G for years), but it’s hard not to shed a little tear for a technology that had been around for so long – especially as it’ll soon also be leaving networks elsewhere in the world too.
The latest iteration of iPhones have introduced some exciting new features, but they come at a cost if you opt for the unbelievably still available 16GB model. With 10GB of actual available storage if you’re lucky, the new features will undoubtedly fill it up quickly. But if it’s all you can afford or care to spend on the new model, there is still hope.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple plans to unveil the iPad Pro at next week’s iPhone event.
The idea of an iPad Pro has been bandied around for a few months now and was even satired by not Jony Ive (@JonyIveParody) on Twitter:
We’ve already released an “iPad Pro.” It’s called the fucking MacBook. pic.twitter.com/D8HZBU2f2X

Rumours of a 4th generation Apple TV being announced on 9th September are rife at the moment, but at what cost? Back when the Apple TV first launched you could expect to pay over £100 to put an Apple-powered media hub in your living room. Recently though prices have dropped to as low as £59. However the original price-point might come roaring back for the next generation. Sources for 9to5Mac claim that the next Apple TV could cost between £149 to £199 (the final price is still up in the air) when it ships, which is reportedly sometime in October. It could make the Fire TV and Roku 3 look like relative bargains, depending on how attached you are to Apple’s ecosystem.
