Do I have any HomeKit accessories in my home? No, not yet, but that’s because I currently live in a rented apartment. I’ll be getting smart home gadgets when I buy my own house, that’s for sure. Until that day arrives, I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for prices of HomeKit products to continue dropping.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of how HomeKit brings these appliances together in the Home app with support for scenes, Siri voice control, remote management via Apple TV and other perks. I also like it a lot how HomeKit products are required to use hardware encryption for security purposes. It’s just that outfitting my home with these smart gadgets would represent too sizable an investment for my budget, that’s all.
So, what about you? Do you own any HomeKit-certified accessories? Cast your vote and meet us in comments if you’d like to share your thoughts about the HomeKit platform or any HomeKit devices you already own, or may be planning on buying. Read More

So now that a week has passed, what will you do – keep it, or update? 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.
But for those loyal to jailbreaking, is iOS 9.3 enough to lure you away from the freedom to do whatever you want with your iOS device? Read More
