Apple published it’s new iPad mini commercial on YouTube recently. It’s titled “Piano” and starts off with a normal iPad and zooms over to an iPad mini while they play two piano apps together. Check it out! [Read more...]
Apple has announced the heavily rumored iPad mini. We’ve know some of the the specs for a while including the 7.9″ display and the 1024×768 display. It has the new lighting connector that comes with iPhone 5. It has the faster wifi, LTE, Siri, 5MP Back Camera, 1080p Video Recording, 720p Front Camera, and the A5 chip. I’m guessing since the screen resolution is smaller than the iPad 3 & 4 they didn’t feel the need to put the new A6 or A6X chips in it. [Read more...]
Apple has published another video to YouTube on their new EarPods. This was a product that really needed an update. I’m excited to hear how they sound and if they fit into my ears. Apple says they “tested 124 different prototypes of the EarPods on over 600 people.” If they don’t fit now, what else can they do? [Read more...]

Look at the back of your iPhone. Like most things around you, it says, “Assembled in China”. Not a big shock, but due to the size of this factory (Foxconn), when bad things happen, like suicides and explosions, they get more media attention. I’m all for the audits and making things right and so here is ABC’s video of their tour and what they saw: [Read more...]
Apple recently released an update to the 5.0 software. The first issue they tried to address is battery life. I was defiantly having this issue on my iPhone 4S (AT&T) as my battery would be drained by about noon every day. I am a heavy user but my iPhone 4 always made it all day on one charge. This recent update did help and now I’m up to about 5:00pm each day. Apple has stated they are still working on more battery issues. [Read more...]
Many people are asking what are the new features of the iPhone 5 and why should I upgrade? Today we will find out! We will be posting new features of the iPhone 5, iOS 5 and any other new devices/features throughout the day.
Most likely, Apple will be announcing both the iPhone 5 and the new iOS firmware at their October 4th event. The invitation to the press is titled, “Let’s talk iPhone.” This leads me to believe there will be voice to text built into iOS 5. I’ve tested it out a little using the updated Target app. It seems to recognize what I say really well. It would be great to have it integrated into the software as an option when typing in all apps.

I’ve always longed for a simple task management app that isn’t over complicated. I’ve also though of developing an app that would remind you of a task based on your location. For example, I could create a reminder that the next time I come a certain restaurant I need to remember to try their Salmon Special, or something like that. With Apple’s new stock app called Reminders, I now have a simple task manager with location based reminders! I am using the location feature the most right now by reminding myself to track my hours at work. When I arrive or leave work, I get a reminder to record my hours for the day. [Read more...]
Apple has posted 14 videos of the features of the new iPad. Many are repeats from the first iPad but they do included FaceTime, AirPlay, GarageBand and iMovie. These videos are really good for someone looking to get an iPad for the first time and isn’t sure if it will work for them. You can view them all at http://www.apple.com/ipad/guided-tours.

As suspected, the iOS 4.3 update was released today. If you are looking to upgrade to 4.3… you can plug your device into your computer, head over to iTunes and select the “Check for Update” option. This will allow you to update your device to iOS 4.3. Below is Apple’s official changelog for 4.3.
Remember: If you are jailbroke and want to keep your jailbreak… hold off on updating to iOS 4.3. We will let you know when there is a new jailbreak out. The Dev-Team says that the wait shouldn’t be too long because @i0n1c has a 4.3 untether ready. We’ll keep our eye out. [Read more...]
During the iPad 2 event, Apple announced iOS 4.3 and it’s release date of March 11th. However, rumor has it, that iOS 4.3 is going to be released today. The upgrade will be available for the iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 GSM model (meaning the AT&T iPhone and not the Verizon iPhone) and the iPod touch (3rd & 4th generations). Below is a list of a few the features we will see with iOS 4.3.
Note: Like with all firmware updates, if you have a jailbroke device, you will want to hold off on updating when the new iOS is released… especially with the upgrade to iOS 4.3. Below is a warning from BigBoss.
