Apple unveiled the Apple Watch Series 2 at yesterday’s keynote event alongside the iPhone 7 lineup with improvements to speed and capability, and also bumped up the specs of the original Apple Watch all while re-branding it the Apple Watch Series 1.

There are two new iPhones in Apple’s iPhone lineup: the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. Both are power-houses, but each has its differences. With that in mind, we’re curious about what iPhone configuration you’re planning to buy. Read More
Pangu released the first jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3 last week, following a huge lull in the jailbreak community that left many with lost hope and the decision to just rock a stock device from here on out.
Nevertheless, those who love jailbreaking have already jailbroken their devices again, despite a lot of issues that were reported about the new jailbreak.
So now that a week has passed, what will you do – keep it, or update? Read More

Apple announced iOS 10 yesterday at the company’s WWDC 2016 Keynote and awed the audience with some pretty neat new features.
Of course, the battle continues for those who want more control over their devices, and because of that, we want to know whether you’re going to be updating to iOS 10 this Fall, or if you’ll be keeping your iOS device(s) jailbroken on iOS 9 or earlier. Read More
iOS 9.3 is a big update for iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads, and as a result, we’re interested in learning whether or not the update was big enough for you to download on your daily drivers. Read More
Just this week, Apple surprised us all with a major revision to iOS going into its first beta: iOS 9.3. The reason for the surprise? Apple also has a beta period running for iOS 9.2.1, which still hasn’t been released to the public just yet. The new iOS beta was also followed by watchOS 2.2, tvOS 9.2, and OS X 10.11.4.
Like previously noted, this is no minor update, but a major revision to iOS. It comes with a variety of major new features, including the flagship feature Night Shift, which is a lot like the popular f.lux extension that changes the color temperature of your display after certain hours to work with your circadian rhythm to help you sleep better, the ability to pair multiple Apple Watches, new ways for developers to update to new betas, app improvements, and more.
There has been lot of talk lately about Apple’s relentless pursue of engineering ever-thinner iPhones. A next-generation iPhone, for example, is said to be iPod touch-thin. As you know, the iPod touch actually has a poorer battery life than any iPhone model simply because it doesn’t have the space for an iPhone-grade battery.
This is prompting some people to wonder if the iPhone 7 should just be as thick as the current iPhone 6s, or even a bit thicker, if that meant boosting its battery capacity for an improved run time.
This poll seeks to figure out if you’d be willing to trade thinness for battery life, or vice versa. So, would you prefer the iPhone 7 to be thinner or have a longer battery life? Read More
With only a few hours left in 2015, we’d like to ask you to take a few seconds to take our poll and vote for your favorite Apple product of the year.
For relevancy reasons, we only take into account products that have seen a significant update, and we did not include accessories (sorry Smart Battery Case lovers) and peripherals. Read More
Beats 1 launched on Apple Music nearly six months ago to much fanfare, but today, the service doesn’t seem to garner as much interest as it first did back in June. I myself listened to Beats 1 a bit, but the novelty quickly wore off, and the multiple genres played all days just didn’t sit well with my specific tastes in music.
I know I haven’t listened to Beats 1 in weeks, possibly months, and I am curious to see if more people feel the same way as I do, hence this poll. Read More
Twitter today said that it’ll be rolling out the ability to embed custom polls in tweets to all users over the next few days.
Originally tested with a small subset of its user base, polls in tweets will permit everyone to interact with their followers and get the public’s opinion on just about anything by embedding customized polls in tweets.
In addition, Twitter’s Mac app will be getting a thorough revamp soon with a new dark mode alongside a bunch of new features borrowed from the mobile edition of the software, including in-line Vine and video playback, photos in Direct Messages and in-line replies and much more. Read More
Now that the iPhone 6s has been here for a few days and we’ve been able to at least partly digest its presence, it’s time to tell us about your favorite new feature. Is it the new rose gold color? How about 2GB of RAM? Or maybe you think 3D Touch widely exceeds expectations?
We have our favorites, now it’s time to share yours. Vote in our poll, and let your opinion be heard. Read More
Apple’s new iPad Pro with its epic 12.9-inch display, super smooth performance courtesy of Apple’s third-generation 64-bit ‘A9X’ microchip, four speaker audio, enhanced multitouch technology with lag-free Apple Pencil performance—to name but a few of its headline features—doesn’t file as the most attractive, powerful iOS device but also the priciest yet.
Starting at $799 for the entry level Wi-Fi-only 32 GB model and going all the way up to a whopping $1,079 for the flagship Wi-Fi + Cellular edition with 128 GB of storage, the iPad Pro will essentially compete with Apple’s own MacBook Air and Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet with a similar price level.
It won’t be available until November and launch quantity will be limited, which doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start saving now for the device, quite the contrary. But the big question is, will you buy an iPad Pro? Read More

Apple Music has been available for a little more than a month now and the service already has dozens, if not hundreds of problems to complain about which have earned it mixed reviews from the press.
Apple Music’s biggest advantage, its tight integration with the rest of the Apple ecosystem, is being erased for some amid a flurry of issues, ranging from disappearing music, issues with DRM, user interface inconsistencies and poor implementation in iTunes, to mention just a few.
You’ve heard the horror stories and have hopefully played long enough with Apple Music in order to make an informed decision as to whether or not you’ll continue using it once the free three-month trial expires. Read More
