It’s been the question on everyone’s lips ever since its huge acquisition story a few months back, but the mystery around just what Apple will do with Beats Music may be about to come to an end. With Apple expected to make use of the streaming service in one way or another, the question has always surrounded whether it would keep Beats Music as is, or roll it into iTunes instead. Now, following a report that claims to cite multiple sources, it appears that Beats Music may be living on borrowed time.

Along with all the excitement of iOS 8 landing last week, there was a tinge of ire caused by a few very vocal people that mistakenly believed that the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system had deleted the majority of their photos. The confusion came from the removal of the Camera Roll from Apple’s Photos app, with it being replaced by the rather ominously named ‘Recently Added.’

Apple iOS 8 [Review]

By | September 18th, 2014

Another year, another update to iOS. And while things may look pretty much the same on the face of it, iOS 8 is well worth everyone’s time. While iOS 7 was a big departure from what we were used to in regards to aesthetics, iOS 8 goes another route, this time preferring to take a scalpel to the operating system’s innards rather than its exterior.

It’s probably fair to say that Microsoft’s Xbox One isn’t the most portable of things. Even if you ignore the fact that it needs hooking into a power outlet and a big TV screen in order to work, the case that the machine comes in simply doesn’t lend itself to being moved around too often.

The App Store’s rather full of great apps to download, both free and paid-for, but where do you start?

With all the chaos of Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus going on sale a couple of days ago still very much ringing in our ears, and now we’re today hearing that some of those lucky enough to have managed to place a pre-order are now seeing their new smartphones ship ahead of the official September 19th release date.

When Apple ships iOS 8 to the public next week, one of the features that it adds may not automatically get all the attention it deserves. Being able to use third-party keyboards can truly change the way many of us use our iPhones and iPads, but it’s destined to be one of those features that never really makes its way into the mainstream.

We’re now just three days away from the iPhone 6 announcement that we’ve all been counting down to, and with leaks upon leaks already having spoiled some aspects of the big unveiling, one feature that we’re still largely in the dark about it mobile payments.

Facebook’s decision to decouple its Messenger app from Facebook proper has caused much upset amongst those that rely on the feature in order to keep in touch with people. We found that our use of Facebook Messenger increased once the decoupling took place, but it seems we’re in the minority.
