Last month we reported that L.A. Lakers basketball star Kobe Bryant had been seen hanging around Apple's offices in Cupertino, and at the time we speculated that he was in town to discuss endorsement deals regarding the rumored "iWatch." But a new report from 9to5Mac claims that he and other athletes from the NBA, NHL, and MLB have instead been visiting Tim Cook and friends to test the fitness capabilities of Apple's long-anticipated wearable tech.
Apparently, the iPhone 6 rumor mill has run dry: No sooner does another report on Apple's fabled iWatch surface Thursday night, than two others pop up offering even more details on how Cupertino might dominate the wrist.
It's barely been a year since Jony Ive blew up iOS 6 and introduced us to a dynamic new world filled with depth and dimension, but already Apple has taken the wraps off iOS 8, and boy is it a doozy. If iOS 7 laid the foundation, then iOS 8 catapults us directly into the future, adding a ton of features and enhancements. Here are the ones we’re looking forward to most.
The word on the street is that the next iPhone and iOS 8 will boast a heavy emphasis on health, but a new report from the University of Houston (via 9to5Mac) shows that you achieve some impressive medical feats with the existing models. According to the study, a researcher from the university developed an app that can detect melanoma with an accuracy rate of 85 percent based on early tests.
The origins of yoga date back to ancient India, but the craft is still widely practiced today. There's a reason it has stuck around for so long: it's one of the most flexible disciplines you can take part in. If your goal is to stretch your body, lose weight, or rest a worried mind, you can find a routine that suits your needs. One of the great things about yoga is it uses your entire body and no additional equipment, so it's easy to practice just about anywhere. You can sneak in a quick session no matter where you are with the help of these eight apps designed to make your practice fully portable.
The rumors popping up over the past few months have increasingly made the so-called "iWatch" sound like the wonder product many of us have been waiting for from Cupertino for years, but a new report from Networkworld (via MobiHealthNews) suggests that it won't be quite as epic as all that.
It looks as though our favorite Cupertino tech company is out to prove that an Apple a day really can keep the doctor away. Apple's reportedly working on an app that will gather and compile data about your health with the help of the iPhone's new M7 processor, reports 9to5Mac, along with the fitness data commonly found in smart watches like the Pebble.
With so many life-logging apps out there, it may be difficult to find the right one for you. OptimizeMe doesn’t just keep a log of your daily activities — it also tells you how to improve them and how each one affects one another. If you don’t mind manually inputting all of your data, OptimizeMe is true to its name and can help you optimize your life. OptimizeMe organizes your activities into four separate categories: health, creativity, routine, and pleasure.
Everyone's routine is a bit different, but there's one thing that we all have in common: The need for a good night's sleep. Failing to get the required amount of rest can be the difference between a productive day with a positive outlook and a fruitless, seemingly unending one. Even though you sleep — or try to — every night, it doesn't always get easier with more practice. Sometimes you need an aid to get your eyes to stay shut. We've found eight apps designed to help you squeeze out every last ounce of sleep from an evening, which can help make sure you wake up every morning feeling refreshed.
