Back in 2016, Apple engineers proudly announced that they had the most effective security organization on Earth — citing the iPhone as the perfect example of an impregnable smartphone. Just three years later and Apple has seen their security situation take a turn for the worst, with one costly mistake after another this year. However, […]
I picked up the following piece from an online forum. It explains quite well what I wish to discuss in the particular blog post. I am sharing it first and will follow it up with some of my own thoughts on the topic.
WWDC is fast approaching, and that means we’re getting ready for the next major update to macOS and iOS. While there’s been some noise about “maintenance releases” for both operating systems, Apple will likely still release new features or update old ones. We can always debate what to expect, but there’s a more pressing problem: […]
While the iPhone 8 rumor mill has been unusually quiet over the last several months, we’re finally starting to get some leaks. Many of them have revolved around Touch ID, the system used to unlock iPhones with your fingerprint. Currently built into the home button of modern iPhones, you need only place your finger tip […]
Apple’s much-ballyhooed “Hello Again” event last Thursday was promising. With the release of new Touch Bar-enabled MacBooks, Apple fans finally have something to be excited about. And yet, if there was an emoji that best described the general reaction to Apple’s new releases, it would be the dude rubbing his chin skeptically. What gives?
During the WWDC in the summer of 2012, Apple unveiled its newest versions of its MacBook lineup. The 13-inch version was a combination of power and portability, and the 15-inch model packed just as much of a punch as the 13-inch notebook, but the extra screen space gave you just a bit more real estate […]
With the purchase of Beats, Apple also took on the moderately popular Beats Music service. While the service has remained mostly untouched since the purchase was completed in August, small changes are creeping in that could give Beats Music a huge advantage to competitors like Spotify. The biggest of these changes is the ability to […]
iOS 8 has been with us for just under 1o days now, giving everyone enough time to install it and get our feet wet. While Apple calls this their biggest update to iOS since the app store, the truth is that the latest iteration of Apple’s mobile OS is lackluster at best. iOS 8 seems […]
A newly signed bill in California is taking the act of smartphone theft seriously. In this bill is the requirement that any smartphone sold in the state must have antitheft technology installed into it. Originally introduced in February of this year, SB-692 requires smartphones to have a “kill switch” that can be either hardware or […]
To say there’ve been a few rumors about Apple’s first foray into wearable tech would be the biggest understatement since someone said the iPhone was useful. With everyone hoping and wishing for an iWatch, there’s been nothing from Apple on the topic except for a few possible patent applications and some talks with Nike about […]
