A lot of Apple fans have already upgraded to iOS 8 following the recent release of Apple's latest mobile operating system, but for those of you that haven't, here are a few quick tips to make the experience easier.
Presumably ahead of the announcement of the next iPhone at this year's WWDC, Apple has kicked off its iPhone upgrade event in an effort to get owners of older models to upgrade to the iPhone 5s or 5c. "It's a beautiful time for an upgrade," iPhone 4s owners are being told in e-mails from Apple, and signs with the same message were spotted in Apple retail stores as early as last week.
The current conventional logic with solid state drives goes as follows: they're new, they're cool, they're speedy, and they're expensive — but once you go SSD, it's incredibly hard to go back. This theory is fully proven with OCZ's new Vector solid state drive, the 256GB variant having occupied my mid-2011 MacBook Pro for a few weeks now and making me dread the day I have to send the review unit back.
Who knows what Apple is announcing this Wednesday? An iPhone? A thing? Who knows? But if they do, you'll probably want to upgrade, right? And you may be wondering what to do with your current phone? You could always sell it, or you could make use of your investment and give it a new job around the house.
Are you one of the few, the proud (?) who haven’t made the leap to OS X Lion, let alone Snow Leopard 10.6 yet? If you also happen to be a MobileMe subscriber, Apple is planning to entice you with a free DVD of one so you can get to the other.
Apple rarely plays the specs game, particularly when it comes to its iOS devices. Sure, you’ll get a name for the processor and they’ll boast about pixels when it suits them, but talk about RAM or clock speed and there’s radio silence. However, according to one source, the iPad’s dirty little secret is its ever-increasing RAM usage.
Since its debut in 2008, Apple’s Time Capsule has been a study in simplicity and elegance. Offering its users an all-in-one wireless internet gateway and impeccable storage and backup solution, it’s a peripheral device that simply oozes win. For those of us that bought our Time Capsules back in 2008, however, it’s also a device that’s beginning to get a little long in the tooth, especially in the face of the stellar 2TB and 3TB storage update Cupertino gave it this past June. If you’re made of money, you could opt to fork over $499 for a taste of Apple’s new wireless backup hotness, or with a little hard work, you can upgrade your existing Time Capsule with a brand new high-speed 3TB drive for less than half that price. Here’s how to do it.
As Apple's main summer event, WWDC, draws ever closer, so does the quantity of rumors that seem to surround the event on an annual basis. Normally we see the next iteration of the next iPhone during this time, but lately the scuttlebutt is an unveiling of the next iOS at WWDC with the iPhone release to follow a few short months after. However, according to reported WWDC invites being handed out to select British journalists, we might catch a glimpse of the next iPhone sooner than we thought!
