Apple addresses iPhone 5 purple haze, tells us not to worry

To Team Cupertino’s credit, it’s been fairly open in responding to the various criticisms of the iPhone, admitting that Apple Maps is a bit rubbish, and telling us: Aluminium gets scratched, deal with it.

Now the Californians have addressed the reported purple haze phenomenon on the iPhone 5’s camera. Excuse me, while I kiss the sky.

Former MobileMe users get extended iCloud storage for another year

Former MobileMe users get extended iCloud storage for another year

Apple is being uncharacteristically nice these days. A few weeks ago we had an open letter from Tim Cook conceding that Apple Maps isn’t quite up to scratch. Heck, they even provided instructions for popping a Google Maps shortcut on your iDevice’s home screen. What the...?

In a further display of niceness, former MobileMe users will keep their extended complimentary storage for a bonus year.

Review of the week

Man, the weeks are fair flying by. October. How the hell did that happen? In the world of mobile, we’re still in post-iPhone 5/pre-4G/pre-Windows (Phone) 8 limbo, but only a few weeks to go till it all becomes a sexy reality.

Next week, we might well be reporting on iPad mini invites, and probably some sort of Samsung Galaxy S III mini.

Wozniak: Apple should bring iTunes to Android

Wozniak: Apple should bring iTunes to Android

Lewis Curdie  Oct. 5, 2012 at 18:00

It’s been a while since we featured Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak on our hallowed pages. Last we heard, Siri was better before Apple, and Wozzer was quite fond of Windows Phone.

Now the typically outspoken Wozniak is saying he thinks it’d be a good idea for Apple to bring iTunes to Android. Not bloody likely, but an interesting thought.

Apple rumoured to be working on NFC. Again

Apple rumoured to be working on NFC. Again

Lewis Curdie  Oct. 4, 2012 at 14:00

There were rumours that the iPhone 4S, back when we were calling it the iPhone 5, might adopt NFC (Near Field Communication). But nope. Same for the actual iPhone 5, and again it was a no-go.

Now we’re hearing that Apple has signed a deal suggesting that NFC might be present in the next iPhone.

The sheer terror that comes with owning a new phone

The sheer terror that comes with owning a new phone

Lewis Curdie  Oct. 3, 2012 at 13:00

Ardent followers of our hallowed pages will know that I recently took the giant step of ditching my trusty HTC Desire HD and purr-chasing an iPhone 5. A 64GB iPhone 5, to be specific.

Yes, that means I parted with a frankly outrageous £700, and as such, the past week has been nothing less than terrifying.

Mass production of the iPad mini underway?

We’re wondering if these iPad mini rumours will ever go away. I mean, if it isn’t launched this month, will the rumour mill simply propose November? Then December? Then January? Or maybe the iPad mini will come to fruition in a couple of weeks. Hmm.

In any case, we’re hearing that Apple’s Asian friends have started mass production of “a new tablet computer smaller than the current iPad”. Read: iPad mini.

iPad mini invites tipped for October 10

As Jan pointed out, next to no one screamed: “What about the iPad mini?!” following Apple’s September keynote. To be fair, there was more than enough to digest, with the iPhone 5, iOS 6 and new iPods.

Having said that, the iPad mini rumours refuse to go away, and now we’re being told to expect invites on October 10 – a week tomorrow.
