Traditionally speaking, Apple has generally favored releasing new versions of iOS and OS X on a staggered basis rather than bombarding users with upgrades at the same time. The inclusion of the impressive Continuity features that were unveiled at this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference had led some corners to believe that iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite would be made available to the public at the same time this fall, but according to those familiar with Apple’s plans, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

If you happen to be a European iPhone user then it looks like you’ll have some additional power to look forward to when it comes to using your device on a foreign network when travelling. The fourth beta of iOS 8, which was circulated to registered developers on Monday, contains a new “EU Internet” option that is accessible directly through the native Settings app, allowing those travelling in the European Union to have greater control over when the device can, and can’t connect to potentially chargeable Web services.

Apple’s introduction of the various CloudKit APIs within iOS 8 and OS 10.10 Yosemite at this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference was greeted with much glee and excitement from attending developers. The creation of CloudKit will ultimately afford developers with the ability to focus on creating impressive and immersive client-side experiences rather than having to deal with the issues that come attached with server-side cloud storage code. As the APIs are being developed and ironed out it seems that testers will need to put up with some bumps in the road with Apple once again notifying developers that all CloudKit data will once again be wiped at some point today.

In a statement emailed directly to Financial Times journalist Tim Bradshaw Apple has strongly denied working alongside any government agency with the intention of creating backdoor access in any of its products or services. You may have been a little concerned to read a presentation from iOS Security Researcher Jonathan Zdziarski earlier this week that claimed Apple had purposely created backdoor entries that would allow various sets of system and user data to be accessible without the need to authenticate via the usual means. The intricacies and merits of that report are still regarded as questionable at best, but while additional investigation into the claims is being carried out Apple have acted quickly to deny any wrongdoing whatsoever.

There are plenty of different ways that an individual can embrace security to make the home, office – or any other location – a lot more secure. Each possible area of entry, such as doors, windows or garages, can be fortified to ensure that it’s extremely difficult for an intruder to breach. Alternatively, it’s also possible to purchase and integrate security cameras that can monitor and record the property at all times. That option can sometimes prove to be a little too expensive. For those of us who have an extra iPhone lying around, the Manything home security webcam app is an entirely free-of-charge solution that lets you use a spare iPhone as a video surveillance camera.

It’s only been a matter of days since Goophone introduced the world to its “iPhone 6″ clone, but it seems the company is back with yet another attempt to capitalize on the excitement surrounding much-speculated Apple products. Not content with predicting and building what they believe represents the aesthetics of the next-generation iPhone, Goophone has pushed the boundaries even further by manufacturing and offering its own version of the purported “iWatch”.

Sports and fitness giant Nike may have made the internal decision to discontinue the fabulous FuelBand hardware in favor of exploring health and fitness based software solutions, but that doesn’t mean the company has abandoned the thriving community it has worked so hard to amass. The FuelBand will be sorely missed by many who used the wearable on a daily basis, but NikeFuel, the universal method that the company invented to measure and incentivize user activity, is still going strong, and can actually be swapped out for real-life Nike products at a secret branded vending machine.

The iPhone 6 may be grabbing all of the recent headlines due to its impending announcement, but spare a thought for those who prefer to stay away from Apple’s smartphone lineup and only look to the Cupertino company for their tablet needs. The iPhone 6 may be the biggest release planned for this year, but it certainly won’t be the only Apple product we’ll see land on shelves across the world. A new concept, and one that chooses to ignore the smaller form of the iPhone, concentrates on what could potentially be in store for consumers when Tim Cook lifts the lid on the third-generation iPad mini.

The benefit of having a notebook computer definitely speaks for itself, but those benefits invariably come under the guise of accepting that you have a very finite amount of battery life that could be depleted at any moment. According to a new report, if battery life is of extreme importance for you on your portable machine, then it could be beneficial to switch from Google Chrome to an alternative browser to avoid Chrome’s power-consuming habits.

Apple customers in the United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom and a whole host of other European countries are now able to utilize a handy new feature to add monetary credit to their iTunes accounts. After silently rolling the iTunes Pass feature out in Japan, Apple has continued on the path of giving by making the feature available to those in the US and Canada, with a number of additional countries also confirmed to be in on the action, including Germany. The feature allows consumers to adds funds to an iTunes account using Passbook, rather than having to purchase an iTunes Gift Card to redeem.

Sir Paul McCartney, the English singer, songwriter, composer, musician and founding member of The Beatles, has embraced the iPad to bring five of his classic albums to the iOS App Store. The musical works of art have been remastered and transformed into native iPad apps by McCartney and his record label, Concord Music Group. As well as including special remastered versions of each song from the classic albums, the individual iPad apps also offer signature content and media that has been created specifically with this project in mind.

Apple’s next-generation iPhone won’t be officially announced until September, but that doesn’t stop the rumor mill from going into overdrive early. We won’t know exactly what the Apple has in store for us until the covers are removed from the device, but if you simply can’t contain your excitement and are happy to base your decisions purely on speculation then you can already purchase a working clone of the “iPhone 6″, designed and manufactured entirely from the leaked designs and components over the last few months.

When it comes to voice-enabled personal assistants on mobile devices, Apple and Google have dominated that space, forcing others to either play catch-up or risk losing a percentage of market share from users who require that advanced functionality. BlackBerry hasn’t exactly been up there batting alongside the best-of-the-best in recent years, but while the company may lack traction within the consumer space it still holds some weight with corporate users. In an effort to improve the BB10 experience for that loyal corporate user-base, the company has taken to its Inside BlackBerry blog to officially introduce the Blackberry Assistant, a digital experience that will attempt to rival Siri on iOS and Google Now on Android hardware.

It seems that the 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6 “will it, won’t it” saga is set to continue. Apple is widely expected to continue the development of the iPhone by introducing a new 4.7-inch model as well as a larger 5.5-inch “phablet” variant which will appeal those individuals who love a larger display. The question surrounding the release isn’t whether or not the purported larger device exists, but whether Apple and its supply chain partners are able to flawlessly manufacture the parts necessary for the device in the required quantities. According to Ming-Chi Kuo – a well respected industry analyst from KGI Securities – the larger in-cell touchscreen panel and the redesigned metal casing that forms the exterior of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 are proving to be problematic, meaning that a launch could be pushed back to 2015.

Being able to interact with the world in a different way through touch and audible gestures feels like you’ve been catapulted into a futuristic, science-fiction movie. But what if there was a way to remove the limitations associated with having to bark out voice commands in public and use nothing more than a little brainpower to get things done with Glass? The future is here thanks to London-based company This Place and its new Glass compatible technology.

There’s been so much talk, conjecture and wild speculation about the iWatch over the last 12 months that it’s impossible to actually focus on the individual parts of the actual product. Will it be an intelligent watch akin to the Pebble or Galaxy Gear? Are we all barking up the wrong tree by thinking it’s a watch when it’s actually a wearable packed full of health related sensors? Apple’s next product release is fast approaching, meaning that we shouldn’t have to wait much longer for the big reveal, but if you’re of an impatient disposition then why not head over to the Google Play Store and get the iWatch now?

There are literally hundreds of reasons why a particular device may appeal to one person and not another, but when you strip that away we’re all concerned with the privacy and integrity of the data that passes through that device. If your smartphone of choice resides on the Android side of the fence then it could be time to rethink how sensitive data is wiped from memory after a new research has suggested that data removed using Android’s native wipe feature can be restored.

For a lot of jailbreak fans out there, one of the most important aspects attached to liberating a device is the ability to efficiently access the internal file system. This access could be required for a number of reasons which are beyond the scope of this article, but suffice to say it’s undoubtedly an important part of jailbreaking.

It’s only going to be a matter of time until every major appliance in the home is connected to our mobile devices in some fashion. We already have kettles that can be switched on via a mobile app; intelligent thermostats that evolve and become more capable based on our behaviors as well as lighting systems that can be altered directly from a companion app to suit or moods at any given time. The possibilities are pretty much endless.
