The Apple Watch Is Saving My Life

Over the past several years I’ve had trouble with my weight. I didn’t make the best choices and the amount of time I spent in front of a computer greatly exceeded the amount of time I spent exercising or playing sports. Last July I turned 25 years old (I’ll be 26 in a month), that’s a big birthday. I should be super healthy and fit, but I’m not and I want to change that.

So realizing that I want to be there long term for my family, my friends, and to be able to build my business and watch it [...]

How To Find Out Which iOS Apps You Use The Most

If you are using iOS 8 it’s fairly easy to see which apps you use the most on your iPhone. In fact, you can break down the usage for the past 24 hours and also the past 7 days. Here’s how to see which apps you use most on iOS.

Go to Settings > General > Usage > Battery Usage

Before I go any further, I should note that this doesn’t show actual app usage, but rather how much battery a particular app used. Obviously, the thought process here is that apps you use more will use more battery. If you [...]

This Is The Best Apple Watch Stand You Can Buy

So you just got that shiny new Apple Watch but now, you have a problem: you don’t just want to lay it on your desk to charge or when you’re not using it. I don’t blame you, I didn’t either, which is why when I saw that Twelve South was making an Apple Watch stand I knew I had to have one.

If you aren’t familiar with Twelve South, they make accessories specifically for Apple products. So they make stands for MacBook’s, iPhones, iPads, and now the Apple Watch. They also make a bunch of other [...]

First Apple HomeKit Devices to Debut Next Month

Apple says that the first batch of smart home devices running its HomeKit software will start shipping in June—despite a recent Fortune report to the contrary. According to the Wall Street Journal, an Apple spokesperson says that we’ll get our first taste of Apple-crafted home automation within a few short weeks.

Apple competitor Samsung has already jumped into the Internet-of-Things game with its purchase of SmartThings last year.

Said Apple’s Trudy Muller:

“HomeKit [hardware certification] [...]

Problem: Apple Watch Has Huge Security Flaw

While the iPhone has been protected by an automatically activated security measure, the Activation Lock, that feature doesn’t seem to exist on the Apple Watch. A post on iDownloadBlog on Wednesday details an easily exploited security hole in the high profile (and expensive) wearable that could allow thieves who steal an Apple Watch to reset it for later use or resale. That’s a big deal.

Activation Lock is an iOS feature that requires a user to enter an Apple ID and Password to turn off Find My iPhone, which essentially makes any [...]

Analyst Says iPhone 6s Will Feature 2GB RAM, Rose Gold Case

When it comes to predicting the future of our gadgets, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is usually one to watch, since his predictions tend to come true—or pretty close to it. For weeks, he’s been making predictions about Apple’s efforts to make a new version of the iPhone 6, casually referred to as the iPhone 6s, and Tuesday is no different.

The new iPhone 6s might continue with Apple’s trend of gold obsession.

According to Kuo, as reported by a post on AppleInsider, the new iPhone 6s will [...]

Apple Watch Hacked to Run Web Browser

The Apple Watch is, in essence, a teeny smartphone you strap onto your arm. As such, it’s possible to run programs on it like any other device armed with RAM, a processor, and a hard drive. One enterprising hacker going by the name Comex has set his sights on the Apple Watch and loaded it up with a web browser—and the results, as expected, aren’t exactly heartening.

There’s got to be an easier way to search Google.

The problem, of course, is that despite being a small computer, there’s [...]

iOS 9 Details Allegedly Leaked

It’s getting warmer, and that means summer is almost here. And with summer comes that most beloved of events for Apple fans: WWDC, which will be set for this coming June. There, we’re likely to see a new version of iOS, its mobile operating system for the iPhone and iPad. A post on 9to5Mac says that Apple will probably have iOS 8.4 on offer—but iOS 9 is moving forward for its own debut before too long.

Get ready to see Apple CEO Tim Cook tell us about the next iOS pretty soon.

The post is pretty [...]

Jewelers Offer Deep Discounts on Homemade Apple Watch Editions

The Apple Watch is already a pretty expensive device considering its actual cost to create. A recent teardown of the entry-level model, the Apple Watch Sport, claims that its cost of production is about $84—and it retails for $349, a considerable markup, to be sure. The Apple Watch Edition, meanwhile, starts at a whopping $10,000—and merely offers the same device with an 18 karat gold case.

So if you want to rock a gold Apple Watch, but want to pay a bit (a lot) less, a post on 9to5Mac points the way to a few [...]

The Next Apple TV Remote Will Be Radically Different

The original Apple TV remote (left), next to the current Apple TV Remote (right).

The first Apple TV remote was small, white plastic device with a handful of buttons. That remote was phased out by the current remote that ships with Apple TV’s, the current one is the one most people are familiar with: thin and silver with a few black buttons — just the right amount to make it useful and intuitive. This is by design.

The New York Times is now reporting that the new Apple TV remote, which [...]
