It's a good time to be a fan of the gaming consoles of yesteryear. As iMore reports, Amiga Games announced today that some of its classic titles will be making their way to iOS "in time for the 2013 holiday season," which should be just about the time that the new Made for iPhone (MFi) controllers make their official debut.
Following its notable acquisitions dealing with improving its much-maligned Maps app, Apple now has acquired Cue, an app that collects information from your e-mail, contacts, and calendars into one convenient package. AppleInsider broke a rumor of the acquisition earlier today, which was followed by independent confirmations from both Cnet and TechCrunch.
Many users noticed iOS 7's issues with iMessage almost as soon as they appeared thanks to the wide use of the feature, but today Gizmodo reported that they found some other significant issues that aren't so obvious. Specifically, the calibrations for the iPhone 5s's built-in level, gyroscope, compass and accelerometer appears to be off after comparing them with those for the iPhone 5 and 4s.
While the iPhone 5s may be old news to some of us, others haven't been as fortunate, especially for potential buyers looking for certain colors (gold comes to mind) or larger-capacity models. As you'll discover from today's recap, there's now a tool for helping find available stock in a town near you, so let's cut right to the chase and tell you all about it...
KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is something of a celebrity when it comes to accurately predicting what Apple has next in store (thanks partially to inside sources), and according to his most recent predictions detailed in AppleInsider, we can expect to see a 8-megapixel camera to ship with the next iPad and iPad mini. AppleInsider also managed to pick up a tidbit that seems to add some truth to his claims; according to their sources, Sony has picked up all camera sensors destined for Apple's next generation tablets.
If it seemed as though Samsung's recent Galaxy Gear smartwatch came out of nowhere for the purpose of beating Apple to the punch, a new report from Cnet suggests that this may have been the case, after all. Slammed in reviews for poor functionality, disappointing battery life, and a high price, Samsung's diminutive smart device has had a tough time of it as of late, and Cnet believes there's every indication that this shoddiness stems from a desire to rush a product from concept to shelves in a matter of months.
A few days after its public release, Miley Cyrus summed it all up with a terse tweet to her 14 million followers: I hate the iPhone update. Now, she could be talking about the lack of a natural language engine in Calendar or the less-defined back buttons, but I have to assume her complaints are mainly related to the new color palette Jony Ive used to paint the icons.
In a move that may have made the folks over at Apple wince a little, today President Obama took the opportunity to deflect criticism of the allegedly slow and buggy HealthCare.gov site to compare the site's launch to Apple's recent launch of iOS 7. As we've covered on a least two occasions, iOS 7's public release hasn't been without its share of bugs, but the Cupertino giant was quick to remedy at least one with a patch that landed within the first week of launch.
After months of waiting and mere speculation, a leaked image of what could be Logitech's long-awaited gamepad for the iPhone surfaced today on the @evleaks Twitter account. As TechCrunch reports, @evleaks has a good record when it comes to presenting leaks from companies like Samsung and Nokia, so there's a good chance that what we're seeing is legit.
