Well 2015 is fully upon us now and some old favorites are back in the refurb shop, plus an old favorite all spiffed up in its newest incarnation, but you've got to move quick. We've got nothing in the deals column this week that's any older than 2014, so these are some of the newest used machines you can get your hands on and they're all Apple checked, cleaned, and approved, so let's get going.
And we’re back with more iOS games! Hope you used the holiday break to catch up on some of the biggest and brightest games of last year, because 2015 is already off to a solid start with this week’s crop of releases. Gunbrick and Space Marshals look like fun new premium experiences, while Adult Swim’s free Area 777 is surely worth a look, and the great Frozen Synapse has finally made the move to iPhone.
New Year, new you? Nothing like a little pressure from society to straighten up your act and fly straight into 2015, but thankfully the App Store has no shortage of ways to gently nudge iOS device owners into the next 12 months. Whether you're looking to eat healthier, quit smoking, get inspired, accomplish goals, effortlessly journal your life in photos, or tickle your brain, we've got a collection of eight apps to help keep all those New Year's resolutions right here.
Talk about a case of the Mondays! The New Year has arrived, and we've got a great collection of apps to divert your attention away from work or school after two weeks of holiday slumber. This week's New App Recap features a new way to use iOS devices as a second Mac display, view Instagram feeds on an iPad, shoot 4K video, sticker Facebook Messenger missives, command the music at your next party, and sell videos to the world. Sit back and bask in our New Year Edition, starting right now!
The App Store is back in business. After the holiday shut down, there are plenty of app updates queued up and ready for you, fixing bugs and glitches, bringing new features, and there are some price cuts we thought you should know about. So if you got gaming on the brain and some App Store credit to spend, here we go.
So, the Apple refurb market is still recovering from holiday shoppers, so we thought we'd switch things up a little this week, and instead of finding you the newest models on the market, we thought we'd dip back into the older models where the savings really start to get out there. So if you're looking for a secondary machine or money's particularly tight but need is particularly high, we've got some youngish models that still have what it takes.
[Advertorial] We're approaching the end of 2014 and it seems like the year flew by. We always start to feel a little nostalgic around this time of year, so we've decided to take a look back at some of our favorites from 2014. Lucky for you, we're in the spirit of the season and want you to be able to enjo some of the best stuff 2014 had to offer, so you can save on all the best sellers from the year that was. Find out more after the jump.
Wherever there’s a Mac being used for work, there’s often a mug of coffee close by. If you do happen to spill coffee on your keyboard — or worse, knock the entire mug and its contents onto the lower half of your MacBook — don’t drop into the fetal position and start bawling; disaster can still be averted.
iTunes Connect is off duty this week, so there are no new apps or updates being published until the weekend. In the meantime, we've got a heaping helping of great new apps worth checking out while developers are on break, including slick new ways to email or text, a better way to Instagram, how to find out where Apple Pay can be used, a new third-party keyboard, and much more! We'll be taking a break next week, so check back with us after the first of the year, and a happy holidays to all!
This is it: the last hottest news stories of the year! Unless something major drops next week, this is it for 2014. So let's see how things go out this December. Looks like the iPhone 6 is continuing as a juggernaut in the marketplace, and — good news — the order turnaround time is down to one day. Meanwhile, looks like Samsung continues to stumble, Apple Pay is going abroad, the Apple Watch is inspiring others, and Apple is having successes all around. Those stories and more below the fold at this year's end. Happy Holidays to all our Mac|Life readers!
