iPad Air 2 next month, iPad mini 3 in 2015?

Lewis Curdie  7 hours ago

Considering we’re almost certainly on the verge of meeting a new iPad or new iPads, we haven’t heard a great deal about Apple’s next generation of tablet-shaped goodness.

Here, a source from out east reckons the iPad Air 2 will land next month, followed by the iPad mini 3 in early 2015. Hmm.

Facebook apps: a trifecta of terribleness

For a company as big as Facebook, one that has such a massive focus on its mobile product, you really have to wonder who’s making all these design decisions at the top.

Facebook has three primary apps, namely plain old Facebook, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, and they all disappoint in their own unique way.

iPhone 6 sets new sales record in opening weekend, humiliates Samsung Galaxy S5

iPhone 6 sets new sales record in opening weekend, humiliates Samsung Galaxy S5

Lewis Curdie  11 hours ago

To be fair, there was never much doubt that the iPhone 6 would prove insanely popular. Apple has essentially taken an already-popular phone and stretched it to an increasingly popular size.

And indeed, “insanely popular” is now official, as Apple has confirmed the iPhone 6 sold 10 million units in its first three days – that’s almost 10 times the rate of initial Samsung Galaxy S5 sales.

Review of the week

Review of the week

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

What. A. Week. I'll resist the temptation to turn Mobot into an impromptu political forum (though mobiles did play their part in recent goings on), and instead focus on... Apple's iPhone 6!

Yep, the iPhone 6 is on sale now having set all sorts of pre-order records, and pretty much the last thing you would've wanted to do is emerge from the Apple store and immediately drop your new purchase in front of the world, right?

Apple iPhone 6 on sale now, don’t drop it on the pavement

Today’s the day many have been waiting for, as the Apple iPhone 6 is now available to buy across, er, many many countries, including – of course – the UK, which still encompasses Scotland.

Needless to say, if you’ve been queuing for the iPhone 6 for days (as many have), the last thing you want to do is drop it on the ground outside the shop, right?

New iPads for 2014 to be announced on October 21?

New iPads for 2014 to be announced on October 21?

Lewis Curdie  5 days ago

Earlier this month (already feels like a lifetime ago), Apple unveiled the spanking new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, while giving us a taster of the much-discussed Apple Watch (which I still insist on calling the iWatch, hmm).

But if you thought the Californians were about to take their foot off the hardware gas, think again. The brand new iPads will almost certainly launch in a matter of weeks, and the latest guess is October 21.

This week is pretty massive for Apple, as it sees the release of the long-awaited iPhone 6 in 4.7in and 5.5in (“Plus”) flavours. That’s tomorrow.

In the meantime, the Californians have rolled out their latest software update for iPhones, iPads and the latest iPod touch. Say hello to iOS 8.

iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 6 Plus: What’s the difference?

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are now a reality, and all set to go on sale this coming Friday. Question: Which one should you buy?

In layman’s terms there’s a big one (the iPhone 6) and an even bigger one (the iPhone 6 Plus), but there’s a little more to the story than that. Fortunately, some dude has drilled deeper below. Check it out.

Apple A8: marginally better than Apple A7

Apple A8: marginally better than Apple A7

Lewis Curdie  Sep. 15 at 14:00

One of the headline features of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is the spanking new Apple A8 processor, with its 64-bit architecture and M8 motion coprocessor.

The Apple A8 chipset has now been put through its paces, with benchmark scores suggesting it’s – surprise, surprise – a wee bit better than last year’s Apple A7.

Surprise! Apple’s iPhone 6 sets overnight pre-order records

Surprise! Apple’s iPhone 6 sets overnight pre-order records

Lewis Curdie  Sep. 13 at 11:00

We were saying yesterday that the Apple site seemingly had trouble coping with the initial influx of iPhone 6 pre-orders, and that waiting times were already hitting several weeks for certain models.

In case there was any doubt about the iPhone 6’s popularity, Apple has confirmed that it’s set some sort of pre-order record.
