It's our final overnight recap before the holiday break, which just so happens to also be our last one of the year as well. The MacLife.com crew will be indulging in egg nog and spending some well-deserved time with the family over the next week and a half, but we won't be back with another recap until Monday, January 6 -- by which point the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show will be kicking off, and there should be plenty of new stuff for all! Until then, happy holidays to all and a big ho-ho-ho to go!
There are just two days to go before iOS 7 hits the streets ahead of new iPhones on Friday, and judging from the increasing volume of updates hitting our devices, developers have been working overtime to get their apps ready for Apple's latest mobile operating system.

Inside is a removable piece of urethane molded to securely cradle an iPad.
