Here’s Why Google Photos Should Be Your Default Photo App

I am in love with Google’s new Photos app. It has been less than a day but I’ve already decided it is now my default photo/video organization app. Yesterday at Google I/O, the brand new Photos app was one of the big announcements the company made. With the announcement Google also one-upped pretty much every other photo service out there with unlimited photo and video storage for free.*

That asterisk is there because it’s only unlimited for photos up to 16MP and videos up to 1080p. But really, at the moment, [...]

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:

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 [...]

1st Nintendo Smartphone Game Slated for Late 2015

Nintendo outlined some more specifics in its plans to begin developing smartphone and tablet games on Friday, announcing via its latest financial results briefing that the first such title would hit before the end of this calendar year. We can also expect to see a total of five games by March of 2017.

Yup: five games in a little under two years.

That’s not amazing in terms of output! But, it also seems to signal a commitment on Nintendo’s part to making sure that it doesn’t just pump out shovelware that no one will want. [...]

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 [...]

For months, rumors have ping ponged back and forth about whether or not Apple would be making a smaller version of the iPhone 6—and on Tuesday, those rumors swung back the other way, with Digitimes reporting once again that a 4-inch iPhone was on its way.

Recent rumors point to Apple reviving its “C” line of iPhones for a smaller version of the iPhone 6.

According to the post, AU Optronics “is expected to supply 4-inch panels and is currently prepping 4.7- and 5.5-inch LTPS In-Cell [...]

New Apple Music App in iOS 8.4 Beta

The new Music app from Apple has made its first appearance in the iOS 8.4 beta that was released on Monday evening, 9to5Mac reports. Built in collaboration with Beats, which Apple acquired in 2014, the new Music app is expected to be officially announced at WWDC this summer.

There are a whole bunch of features described in the app’s release notes, helpfully listed in the above-linked 9to5Mac post, but none of them are particularly incredible one way or another. They seem mostly like solid UI choices: like putting the Recently [...]
