The user interface for the iPhone has worked so well for Apple over the past few years that it's changed comparatively little (all things considered), but Apple's reveal of the bubbly UI for the Apple Watch points to the possibility of a different aesthetic. Taking his cue from a 9to5Mac article that toyed with the idea of a Apple Watch-styled interface for the iPhone, YouTuber Lucas Menge went out and created one and shared the results in a video.
If you're left-handed and you were worried that you wouldn't be able to wear the fancy new Apple Watch, fear not. One of the benefits of its digital UI is that it's reportedly easy to change the orientation of it in Settings as needed, which should also come in handy if you ever need to sell the thing.
This morning Apple refreshed its betas for iOS and Mac OS X, adding a number of new, comparatively minor tweaks as iOS 8 and Yosemite both nudge ever closer to their official launches. But nestled among these tweaks is perhaps Apple's biggest surprise of all — it's updated the aging Apple TV interface to better resemble iOS 7.
If the news from 9to5Mac is correct, it's time to brace ourselves for the greatest overhaul in iOS's design since its first appearance in 2007. Under the leadership of Apple's chief design honcho Jony Ive, iOS 7's design will embrace the current trend toward "flatter" user interface (think: Windows 8) and turn its back on the glares, flares, and skeuomorphism familiar from current and past iOS releases. How flat? In the words of one articulate source, "very, very flat."
Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
With the release of Mountain Lion last week, many users have now downloaded and installed the latest cat on the block.

It seems as if Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal just can’t give up on the greatly rumored "iPad mini". It’s not the first time that the baby iPad has become the hottest tech-media topic. With the recent Microsoft and Google tablet announcements, the two publications are once again speculating that a Q4 release of the 7.85-inch iPad is imminent. With the perfect synergy the current iPad and iPhone offer in the screen-size department, many Apple fans are wondering how exactly Apple will pull off such a device, especially consindering that a majority of the apps in the App Store wouldn't fit. Developers would either have to redesign their apps or users would just have to live through the new resolution changes.
