The iPhone 6 and the jumbo-sized iPhone 6 Plus have clearly captured the imagination of new and existing iOS users around the world with Apple recording more than four million pre-orders taken in the first 24-hours of availability and 10 million units sold in 3 days alone. Add that together with the fact that the majority of models are sold out in most locations and you have yet another successful product launch for the Cupertino company. You would imagine that the initial excitement would focus on the new functionality of the hardware, or the new features of iOS 8, but it appears you would imagine wrong. Thanks to the RatedRR YouTube channel, the interest seems to lie in attempting to torture and destroy the hardware through various acts, such as this latest destruction video recorded at a staggering 35,000 frames-per-second.

Apple has finally flipped the switch. You can now download iOS 8 from the links given below. The immediate availability of iOS 8 means that users with compatible devices can start to process over-the-air updates to their iPhone or iPad to get started with the latest iteration of iOS. Alternatively, the live download links are also available for anyone who prefers to manually craft a full back-up of the device before restoring to the latest, and supposedly greatest, version of iOS.

It’s iOS 8 release day today! If you have a compatible device capable of installing and running iOS 8, then it’s that time of the year again when you should be making a full backup, absorbing the release schedule in your territory and preparing yourself to enter the lottery that is progressing past Apple’s authentication servers.

How would you feel about one single keyboard accessory that works with your smartphone or tablet, regardless of the platform that powers it? Microsoft has today introduced its new “Universal Mobile Keyboard” that can function with Apple iPads, iPhones, Android powered smartphones and tablets as well as all Windows based tablets that contain Bluetooth Human Interface Device support (HID) and are 10mm or thinner.

After releasing a number of devices without the functionality, Apple finally made the decision to add NFC compatibility to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as announced at last Tuesday’s media event. Integration of NFC technology is undoubtedly a step in the right direction, but if you had grand ambitions of purchasing the iPhone 6 with the intention of pairing it with your treasured NFC devices then you’ll need to put those plans on hold. Sources from within the Cupertino company have confirmed that the NFC capabilities of the iPhone 6 will be locked down from within to only be compatible with the company’s own Apple Pay mobile payment system, with no indication of when, or if, that limitation will be lifted.

The only surprise about the Chinese designed and manufactured Sophone i6 is that it’s taken exactly a week after Apple’s media event to get into the public eye. The Chinese smartphone industry has a reputation for being quick off the mark when it comes to producing copies of leading industry devices, so it’s no surprise that this unapologetic iPhone 6 clone is now available. We can only imagine that the manufacturers behind the Sophone are the first in what will be a long line of Chinese companies to produce a similar offering in the coming weeks.

YouTube has just announced that it will be making some changes to how users can interact with video content in the next few weeks on Android, but only for users in India. As part of the improvement process, YouTube will afford Indian media lovers with the ability to download and save videos to view offline, meaning they can be viewed anytime without an active Wi-Fi or cellular data connection.

Apple has today announced that it has clocked in a record number of pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in its first 24-hours of availability. The number of next-generation iPhone units sold as part of the initial pre-order issue has surpassed 4 million, putting the release on track to be the biggest launch in the Cupertino company’s 38-year history. The decision to move to two larger-screen models appears, on the face of things, to be a stroke of genius by Apple as consumers from ten territories ensure initial stock was depleted.

One of the core strengths of Apple as a company is its ability to make what seems like an unbreakable connection with the public. A lot of that appeal can be traced back to the enigmatic Steve Jobs. A brilliant leader. A confident and charismatic public speaker. A visionary; but also a tyrant in the boardroom if you believe what people say. Apple’s current head honcho, Tim Cook, has managed to lead the company into a new era, doing so with his own brand of leadership and public facing charisma. Part One of the interview hosted by Charlie Rose has now been posted to watch online where we get a small insight into what makes Apple’s current CEO tick.

So, the Apple Watch is finally a reality. As you might expect, Apple CEO Tim Cook was filled with genuine excitement as he unveiled the “future” of Apple products to an excited crowd at The Flint Center last Tuesday. The Cupertino company’s first modern-day wearable will be packed with life-tracking sensors, features a stunning Retina display with two size options, be offered in one of three different models, and of course, will offer a number of finish / color options depending on the model chosen. One of those options will be an 18-karat gold version from the “Watch Edition” range, which some industry experts are predicting could cost upwards of $1,000 when it finally goes on sale next year.

The iPhone 6 has been officially announced. The veil has been eventually lifted on the Apple Watch. Pre-orders for the jumbo-sized iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are now live in ten countries across the world – and selling out fast. It’s been a busy week for Apple on all things relating to the iPhone and iOS, and it looks like the MacBook and OS X segments are about to get busy too. Remember those rumors pertaining to an ultra-slim 12-inch MacBook that surfaced earlier on this year? Well, they’re back, but this time suggesting that the revolutionary MacBook could make an official appearance in mid-2015.

Samsung may have taken the earliest possible opportunity to mock Apple’s latest iPhone – and let’s be honest here, we wouldn’t expect anything less from the maker of the Galaxy Series of devices – but it seems that the unveiling of the iPhone 6 may be adversely affecting the Korean company in a way they’d never care to admit. In the aftermath of Tuesday’s media event at the Flint Center, buyback service Gazelle are reporting that requests for Samsung hardware trade-ins were up over 200% as consumers look to free up some financial capacity to purchase the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus when it hits the shelves.

Tuesday’s announcement of the “Bigger than bigger” iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones not only lived up to much of the pre-event speculation, but also managed to live up to our expectations, at least for most of us. And though Apple’s latest smartphone may not start shipping or landing in brick and mortar retail outlets until next Friday, but lest we forget that pre-orders for the super-sized hardware begin this Friday in 10 territories. Deciding which iPhone 6 to go for is proving to be extremely difficult for a lot, so we’re here to lend a helping hand.

Apple’s Flint Center media event has been and gone. The occasion was packed with the typical presentation flair and expertise that we’ve come to expect from the likes of Tim Cook and Phil Schiller, and even continued the light-hearted trend of throwing in the odd casual joke here and there.

In preparation for next week’s launch of the iPhone 6 and the public rollout of iOS 8, Apple has today officially released its TestFlight app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch on the App Store. The Cupertino company’s official beta distribution app has been in the works for quite some time after it acquired parent company Burstly back in February and is now officially available to download via the iOS App Store.

The Cupertino company’s media event is undoubtedly the most anticipated Apple event for quite some time and is all set to kick off at 10am Pacific Time today, Tuesday, September 9th. Carrying on with Apple’s recent tradition of boasting about the fact that its products are “Designed by Apple in California”, the media event will be held in Cupertino, California at the Flint Center. Incase you didn’t know, the Flint Center has a historical significance for the fruit company as the location for the launch of the original Mac by Steve Jobs 30 years ago.

The world is waiting in anticipation as Apple gears itself up to introduce its first wearable device on Tuesday. The much speculated device, likely to be called iWatch, and which will apparently be based on a modified version of iOS, has been in development for quite some time, with Apple only now being in a position to introduce it to the world. Information pertaining to the device has been relatively sparse, with Apple managing to keep the lid tightly on things during the run up. However, now, according to a new report, the Apple wearable will be capable of running third-party applications, with a number of large developers already using and interacting with the bespoke SDK.
