The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have undoubtedly been a huge success for Apple. After making the decision to break away from a 4-inch display and move into “phablet” territory with the iPhone 6 Plus, it’s difficult to imagine how the Cupertino giant could ever go back to producing smaller screen smartphones. Now, after breaking records and basking in the glory of the iPhone 6, it appears that the time has come to usher in the next-generation iPhone, which, according to Bloomberg, is already in the process of being manufactured at various supply plants.

When iOS 9 is finally released to the public this fall, it will come with the ability to save almost any type of content as a unique PDF file. Any iOS developer who has ever worked on a third-party app that has a requirement to render any kind of complex content to PDF will understand how difficult it can be. The PDF file format can be unbelievably difficult and cumbersome to work with, which is why this latest feature discovered in iOS 9 is even more incredible than it initially looks.

As part of Apple’s continuing trend of selecting one commercial third-party app to make free as the ‘App of the Week,’ the Cupertino giant has given the honor to ‘Halftone 2 – Comic Book Creator’ this week. The app has been on the App Store for quite some time and has already been named as one of the best apps of 2013 by Apple as well as being featured regularly as an App Store Editor’s Choice. Apple also featured the title as a showcase app to show off the screen of the iPhone 6 in Apple Retail Stores. If that level of love for the app wasn’t enough, it’s now sitting pride of place on the front page of the App Store.

The introduction of iOS 9 brought with it a number of feature additions and much-longed for functionality improvements. Rather than reinventing the wheel and attempting to serve up a whole new set of core features, iOS 9 exists as more of a stepping stone for what is to come and attempts to stabilize its core offering with a number of stability improvements that should make the whole experience more pleasurable across all devices. iOS 9 does however, introduce one very impressive little feature that should make a difference to a lot of users – Low Power Mode, which is designed to save battery life by reducing the performance of the device and preventing consistent background activity.

Multi Grammy Award winning artist Taylor Swift has decided to put her latest album “1989” up for streaming on Apple’s new music service when it launches later this month. You may remember that Taylor Swift had an issue with the fact that Apple planned on offering a three-month trial of its Apple Music streaming service when it launches on June 30, a trial that would have seen artists and content creators receive no payment for tracks streamed during that period. After effectively reversing on its stance, Apple has convinced Swift to do her own u-turn and allow her best-selling 1989 album to be offered to Apple Music subscribers.

With Apple continuing to expand and push the capabilities of its HomeKit framework / program to developers and hardware manufacturers alike, it’s inevitable that multiple new pieces of hardware will start to hit the market in the coming months. That can actually only be a good thing as we well and truly enter into the “Internet of Things” era, and will serve to offer serious choice for consumers as they embark on an iOS controlled home automation revolution. The recently announced Twist is yet another smart accessory, but one that hasn’t yet jumped on the HomeKit bandwagon, choosing instead to rely on an Internet connection and Apple’s AirPlay protocol.

When you purchase a Windows powered desktop or notebook, more often than not you ultimately agree, whether knowingly or unknowingly, to sell your soul to the bloatware demons. Sure, Windows may still be the most popular desktop operating system in the world based on sheer volume, but that doesn’t prevent individual OEMs from forcing their horrendous bloatware down the throats of consumers at every given opportunity. Now, it seems that Samsung, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of PCs, and shippers of bloatware, is taking things a little further by not only forcing its bloatware onto users, but also forcing the shutdown of one of Windows biggest features – automatic updates by Microsoft.

The Apple Watch seems to be the latest plaything of choice for developers and tinkerers looking to get to grips with something new and intriguing. We’ve already witnessed prominent developers and community figureheads like Adam Bell, Hamza Sood and Steve Troughton-Smith hacking Apple’s smartwatch to run truly native apps. Now it appears to be the turn of developer Nick Lee, who has chosen to use his Apple Watch to run an operating system that was first released for the Macintosh nearly two decades ago.

Any app or service that serves up instant access to popular movies and TV shows will always garner a lot of attention from the masses. The developers behind Popcorn Time, that managed to collect quite a lot of attention for potentially the wrong reasons, have shared some statistics to show just how much attention an iOS app of this particular type can get in terms of downloads.

The basic hardware design pattern of the iPhone has remained fairly consistent since 2007. The current-generation iPhone is visually miles ahead from the original, but the actual physical makeup of the hardware carries all the general pieces of the debuting device – such as the volume, sleep / wake, Home button, albeit in different locations. With that said, things could all change as we move into the future, as it’s being reported that Apple is internally working on a number of future iPhone designs that would see the iconic Home button being removed for good.

A new patent application published on Thursday gives the clearest indication yet that future iPhones will benefit from a new and improved antenna setup. Within the application, Apple outlined fairly comprehensive plans to invest in the design and development of a new composite metal material that will look and feel exactly like regular metal with an anodized finish. The only real difference, which forms the main part of the patent application, is that the new material will be capable of allowing radio frequencies to pass seamlessly through it, making it the perfect composite to hide the antenna on a mobile device.

It seems that the Apple Watch has impacted more than just the lives of those who have thus far chosen to integrate the watch into their everyday lives. The Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry, or the FSWI if that’s too much of a mouthful, has today reported that exports of Swiss made timepieces has fallen for the first time in six years. Strangely enough, the significant reduction in exports, for the first time since 2009, coincides perfectly with the release of the Cupertino company’s watchOS powered timepiece.

After discovering a number of faulty 3TB hard drives used in certain 27-inch iMac computers, Apple has announced a replacement program that will see potentially broken components swapped out for new ones. The Cupertino company, which has published a support page for this very issue, has confirmed that specific 3TB hard drives “may fail under certain conditions,” and that the issue affects certain 27-inch iMac models sold between December 2012 and September 2013.
