Tim Cook and friends are no doubt celebrating over the latest report from Kantar Worldpanel, which states that iPhones have taken a greater share of the U.S. smartphone market than Android phones for the first time since 2012. Elsewhere, there's a strange car leased to Apple that's prowling the streets in and around San Francisco, and Universal Pictures finally announces a release day for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic.
If you're still worried about how the Apple Watch will function once it's actually on your wrist but you want to be a day-one buyer, never fear: the development team who made the iOS app Pipes has made an online demo that shows how it works in practice. Elsewhere, adoption of iOS 8 continues to climb across all compatible devices, and the success of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is pushing up Apple's smartphone market share almost everywhere.
Android's meteoric success over the last couple of years has had a lot to do with its availability to almost every phone carrier, and now it looks as though Apple's finally taking that lesson to heart. Good thing, too. According to the data Kantar Worldpanel released this morning, Apple's increasingly more open attitude toward carrier availability has resulted in a 3.5 percent bump in sales since May of last year.
