The tech media made a big deal out of the U.S. patent office "rejecting" Apple's trademark application for the iPad mini -- a decision that has now been withdrawn without Apple having to lift a finger.
Are you finding your iPhone 5 battery life just doesn't go as far with iOS 6.0.2 as it did prior to installing this week's update? If so, you may not be alone, judging from posts on Apple's support forums.
We know SpongeBob SquarePants is super popular with kids -- and even some adult kids! -- but those who aren't fans can squeal for joy with news that one of the cartoon character's free iOS apps has been pulled.
Could Apple have actually known about the deficiencies in the new iOS 6 Maps app well ahead of its launch? That's what six developers are claiming in a new report detailing how faults in Maps were called out months before its release.
iOS 6 has yet to even be released and already, AT&T is finding the update controversial with its plans to only allow FaceTime over cellular connections from the carrier's new Mobile Share data plans, which launch on Thursday.
It's not quite as well-publicized as Antennagate or all those "overheating" iPads, but there's an annoying little issue still prevalent in iOS 5 that you might have experienced. It's hard to pin down the cause--although Apple's discussion boards are filled with complaints from photo junkies--but if you've ever gotten stuck on the "Waiting for items to copy" step of an iTunes sync, you're not alone.
For most of us (this writer included) it's an occasional nuisance. It generally pops up at the end of a lengthy sync but there doesn't seem to be a consistent culprit. Apple's discussion boards are filled with complaints about the so-called iTunes sync bug, with situations ranging from genius results to large photo libraries. It seems to be a bit more prevalent on Windows, but there are certainly a healthy share of Mac users at their wits' end, too.
There’s a new wrinkle in the ongoing patent wars, which finds Google’s new BFF Motorola Mobility in hot water with the European Commission -- with two investigations now underway after complaints by Apple and Microsoft.
On Monday, we reported that Apple had successfully put the hammer down on Samsung’s plans to launch the Android Honeycomb-powered Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Australia. Just a day later, Samsung is striking back and plans to release the tablet in the land down under anyway.
We’ve heard all the horror stories about long App Store approval times in the past, although developers by and large seem pretty happy about the way Apple is doing things these days. One major exception appears to be WhitePages, who is debuting their latest app on Android first because of frustration with Cupertino’s approval process.
