As time chugs along and we get ever nearer to the expected September announcement and, hopefully, release of at least one new iPhone, the leaks are still gathering quite the pace. With Apple believed to be working on not just one new iPhone, but two, all the leaks so far have been based on the smaller 4.7-inch device on Apple’s roadmap. Its 5.5-inch brother has been surprisingly absent in the leak stakes, which has led many to the conclusion that it will launch some time after the smaller variant.

We’re as eager to get our hands on a watch made by Apple as anyone else, but it seems that some are just a little too eager for their own good after a new Jimmy Kimmel Live spot took to the streets in order to see if it could fool people into thinking they were being shown the as-yet unannounced iWatch.

We’ll readily admit to not being the most stylish group of people around, but if you don’t suffer from the same inability to dress yourself properly and also happen to like your music, then you’re going to want to check out this rather cool hoodie.

Gaming doesn’t get more mobile than the folks at Gameloft. The company has been making mobile games for what seems like forever, and with the arrival of high-end smartphones and tablets, it has become the go-to place for highly realistic, highly fun games.

As the iPhone 6′s announcement and release are drawing closer by the day, rumors have very much centered around screen sizes and the hardware that will encase Apple’s bespoke internals. Today though, the aptly named ‘The Information’ has published a report that brings the news back to a story that simply will not die.

They say that time stands still for no-one, and at this time of year we’re pretty sure that most Apple engineers would agree wholeheartedly. As we slip ever nearer the expected September release date for the iPhone 6, the leaks are beginning to gather a pace that those in Cupertino simply can’t hope to outrun.

Apple has launched a new ad for its ever-popular MacBook Air, but it’s not quite like the ads that came before it.

Apple hasn’t even managed to get the iPhone 6 out the door yet, but Samsung has already begun poking fun at not just the phone, but those lining up to buy one, too.

The voice-to-text dictation in iOS has always been one of those features that people either use extensively, or have never even noticed. Those that do make heavy use of dictation have long had one main complaint though, and that’s been about the way their voice is converted to text.

Saving links to be read later may seem like a simple, forgettable feature but as apps like Instapaper and Pinboard have already proven that there’s plenty of use for such a feature. Now, two years after buying Instapaper competitor Spool, Facebook has launched its very own read-it-later service.

Mobile gaming has been growing at an impossible rate ever since the iPhone and Android smartphones arrived, and Gameloft is one developer that has made a handsome business out of games that are built for smartphones and tablets. One of Gameloft’s most successful and indeed most popular games, Modern Combat, has received a launch trailer for the latest game in the franchise.

Apple has already received plenty of plaudits for the way it has worked to try and reduce the number of iPhone thefts in big cities, but a newly discovered patent application shows that the firm isn’t resting on its laurels. Instead, if we’re reading this Thursday’s patent application right, Apple is working on technology that will analyze usage patterns in order to discern whether a device is in the hands of its rightful owner.

Apps are what make the world go round, of that there’s little doubt these days. A look at any of the app stores and their download figures should set aside any thought to the contrary. We love apps as much as anyone else, and we’d argue possibly a tad more, too. All apps are great, but we really love apps that go free for a limited time, which is why we feel it’s our civic duty to make sure that you, the dear reader, get to take advantage of such temporary price drops.

The iPhone 6 leaks have started to pick up pace as we draw close to its grand unveiling in September. On a daily basis, we are either treated to a batch of photos pertaining to the rear shell of the device itself, or an occasional part leak that leaves us scratching our heads. Today is no different, as we are again left scratching our heads, with a new part being leaked related to the iPhone 6.

The jailbreak world can often be a dark and murky one, so when you hear about the biggest and arguably most popular repository of jailbreak apps being hacked, you tend to take notice. That’s what happened very recently, with the BigBoss repo apparently falling foul of hackers.

Keeping your Apple ID safe and secure has never been more important. Not only does it have your payment details locked in, meaning anyone with access to your account can start downloading apps, video or music, but it also plays host to your emails if you use an @icloud.com email address. Strong passwords are a must – you do have a strong password, don’t you? – but sometimes a little extra security must be in order.

Kickstarter can be the home to some rather weird and, frankly, abysmal ideas, but sometimes there’s a little gem waiting to be discovered. One of those gems is the Cabin iPhone battery and charging system and, if we could be so bold, we’d have to say it’s pretty damn awesome.

As the expected release of Apple’s new iPhone 6 draws ever closer, it stands to reason that mass production of at least one of the new devices has to begin pretty soon, and now that’s been all but confirmed by a new report by the Economic Daily.
