Apple has been behind the (RED) intuitive for eight years, and this year it has begun the first ever worldwide App Store initiative that sees 25 of the biggest apps out there being made available with special, limited edition content under the (PRODUCT)RED banner.

Back when widgets were all the rage on Android and everyone was in awe of the stock clock and weather widget that could be found at the top of all HTC devices’ home screens, the widget itself was held up as an example of the kind of thing that users of iPhones were always going to miss so long as Apple refused to allow widgets. Then jailbreaking came along and made it all possible, but the iPhone’s relatively small screen never really leant itself to having something so large at the top of the screen.

Concepts of unreleased and unannounced smartphones are always popular, and contrary to popular belief not just when they’re for iPhones. Flagship handsets from the likes of Samsung and HTC are great concept fodder, and it’s the latter that is the subject of one of the latest to pop up on our radar.

We already knew that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus packed quite the computational punch, but new testing by the developers of Mac app WALTR has found that both devices are actually capable of playing 4K video.

There are some features that sound absolutely awesome but you just know that they will never see the light of day on iOS. Android can be argued as having some of the cooler, more geek-friendly features when compared to iOS, and if there’s a little bit of the tinkerer inside you then that probably grates your gears.

It’s not often that you get to make your own design and have it printed onto a pair of shoes, but that’s exactly what Adidas is making possible with the miZX Flux service. Originally announced earlier this year, the service is now live in the United States with select other countries set to also join in the fun at a later date including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Apple has long received flak for not giving people the widgets that they seem to so desperately want. The addition of widgets to Notification Center may have gone some way to keeping those people happy, but if you’re the kind of person that has always wanted the big HTC weather widget on your iPhone’s home screen, then Apple isn’t likely to give you what you want any time soon.

Apple has today replaced all the ‘FREE’ download buttons with the word ‘GET’ across both the App Store and Mac App Store. The change appears to be worldwide, so you should be seeing it right now no matter which store you happen to frequent.

With this year’s Black Friday on November 28th, all the major retailers are already getting their ducks in a row to make sure that everyone is well aware of where they need to start lining up in order to try and bag themselves a bargain come opening time. Walmart is determined to steal a march on most other retailers though, and rather than simply announcing what will be on offer, the company is instead setting its stall out early.

Daring Fireball’s John Gruber isn’t one for idly throwing guesswork out into the public domain. If he says something, it’s usually very well considered and if he’s been given the inside scoop by someone in the know, then extremely accurate also. So when Gruber says something about the next Apple camera being a large jump over what’s currently available, people tend to take notice.

The update to iOS 8.1.1 may have fixed some of the more ridiculous and irritating bugs that iOS 8 / 8.1 had managed to introduce, but it also has one undocumented benefit that will no doubt prove highly useful to those carrying iPhones and iPads with just 16GB of internal storage. Even though many have reported that they still need huge amounts of free space in order to install iOS 8.1.1, many have found that once they’ve gone through the entire update process they’ve been left with more space than when they started.

As we’ve already mentioned, Apple has today seeded its first Apple Watch Software Development Kit to developers. Called WatchKit, the tools included will allow developers of iOS apps to incorporate the watch as they see fit, so long as they stick within the hardware limitations on offer as well as the limitations that Apple will no doubt apply via its App Store review process.

We still don’t know exactly when the Apple Watch will be available to buy, but today developers got their first look at the tools that they will use when creating apps for the wearable. Released via the same Apple Developer Center as iOS and Mac SDKs, the new WatchKit is available to all iOS developers as part of their existing developer subscription.

The threat posed by the WireLurker malware that has been infecting Macs and iOS devices has only recently come to light, but following a tip-off from local security company Qihoo 360 Technology, Chinese authorities arrested three individuals that it suspects are behind the malware. WireLurker infected thousands of mobile devices in the country after users unwittingly installed it via a third-party app store.

Grand Theft Auto 5 may be a game that’s already been around for a while on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but that hasn’t stopped the excitement for the released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 reaching fever pitch. Beyond the lush new graphics, one of the main reasons that the rerelease has everyone’s attention is the new first-person mode that is coming to the next generation of consoles. For the first time, gamers can play a Grand Theft Auto game through the eyes of the title’s lead character.
