Four things we’re looking forward to in 2H14

Four things we’re looking forward to in 2H14

Lewis Curdie  58 minutes ago

There’s clearly been some disruption in the space-time continuum. It seems like only yesterday that we looked back over space year 2013AD, but already we find ourselves in July 2014. JULY. How did that happen?

Yes, we may be racing towards death at an alarming rate, but on the plus side, lots of cool stuff is being released in the second half of 2014. “List four of them in some kind of feature, big man!” Sure.

iPad mini 3 to release as iPad mini Air?

iPad mini 3 to release as iPad mini Air?

Lewis Curdie  Yesterday

First we had the Apple iPad mini, then came the iPad mini 2 (left) – or iPad mini Retina if you prefer.

With the iPhone 6 and iWatch hogging the rumour limelight of late as far as Apple is concerned, we haven’t said a great deal about the inevitable iPad mini 3, but fresh Chinese whispers suggest it’ll hit the market as the iPad mini Air, with a suitable reduction in size.

Apple iPhone 6: 70-80 million units built by year-end?

Incredibly, I’m currently staring at a headline that reads: “Next iPhone Will Offer Bigger Screens”. THAT IS BRAND NEW INFORMATION. Well, if you’ve been in a coma for the past six months.

They’ll measure 4.7in and 5.5in, blah blah blah… The more interesting part of the story, for our money, is the notion of Apple ordering more iPhones for launch than ever before.

Five things we think we know about the iPhone 6

Five things we think we know about the iPhone 6

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

Of all the top smartphone manufacturers, Apple probably does the best job of keeping things under wraps until, like, the actual product launch, but that’s not to say there aren’t countless leaks beforehand – on an almost daily basis at the moment for the iPhone 6

With less than two months to go (maybe), I’ve complied all the pertinent stuff and put together – er, as the title reveals – Five things we think we know about the iPhone 6.

Google Play’s freemium games won’t be labelled ‘free’ much longer

The European Commission loves sticking its political beak into the world of mobile, but to be fair, we’re usually pretty happy with the results – such as the recent lowering of data roaming caps.

Similarly, I’m quite happy with the decision that freemium games shouldn’t really be labelled free on app stores like Google Play and, well, the App Store.

Anyway! What happened this week? Smartphone rumours, tablet rumours, smartwatch rumours… the usual; check it out below. Mostestest comments went to Three makes 0800 calls free for SIM-only customers but ends unlimited tethering.

iPhone 6’s A8 processor: dual-core but super-fast?

iPhone 6’s A8 processor: dual-core but super-fast?

Lewis Curdie  7 days ago

To Apple’s credit, it’s never really been one to join in the smartphone spec race. The iPhone’s camera, for example, has technically been 8MP since 2011’s iPhone 4S, with the Californians opting to make the technology better (shock horror) rather than half-heartedly upping the megapixel count.

Similarly, we’re told that the inevitable Apple A8 processor powering the iPhone 6 will be dual-core, same as the A7, A6 and even A5 before it, but with significantly better performance.

Lewis Curdie  Jul. 16 at 14:00

In the world of mobile browsing, there’s nothing more annoying than entering a site only to find that it’s not supported. “Mother fugging son of a cult!” is just one possible permutation of resulting expletives.

In a neat twist, your Google search will now warn that a site mightn’t work before you click, adding seconds to your life and avoiding unnecessary frustration.

Apple iPad Pro rumoured for 2014 release

Lewis Curdie  Jul. 16 at 11:00

With all the talk of the iPhone 6, and the iWatch – Apple’s first foray into wearable tech, we’d almost forgotten about the long-rumoured giant iPad, namely the iPad Pro.

It’s been pretty quiet on the iPad Pro front of late, but a new rumour from out east suggests the colossal tablet might arrive later this year.
