An integrated extension for Things, the neat, revered to-do app from Cultured Code, brings a significant overhaul to the overall experience in time for iOS 8, and although the improvements have been a long time in the works – the Things UI has yet to be tweaked in line with iOS 7 – it appears as though the wait has been well worth it.

For some reason, the tech world spends more time parodying voice assistants than actually using them, and just like when Siri and Google Now first arrived, we got a little excited about Microsoft’s Cortana earlier on this year at BUILD. Certainly, the software giant is every enthusiastic about the software, which is based on the virtual voice of the character from Halo, and with the HTC One M8 confirmed as releasing on Windows Phone, Microsoft has taken the opportunity to take a swipe at Apple and Siri once more.

In case you missed it, a number of high-profile celebrities had their very private images leaked onto the Web. But while it was rumored that Apple’s iCloud infrastructure was to blame for the large-scale breach, the Cupertino giant has stepped out and denied that its services were to blame in an official statement on the matter.

The IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany will once again attract some of the biggest names in tech, but as we await the big announcements from Samsung, Motorola et al, Elgato has taken the wraps off several HomeKit-ready home automation devices.

What with Sony being a major smartphone and camera vendor, the Japanese outfit has recently sought to combine its specialties and create something of a middle-ground. Back at IFA last year, smart lenses were introduced – high-end attachments for smartphones that would offer a premier shooting experience on-the-fly. Like most first-time efforts, it was a concept that didn’t quite hit the mark, but never one to give in so quickly, the PlayStation maker appears to be back with a revised approach in the form of the QX1. With rumors suggesting that it’ll separate the image sensor and lens components, it could, in turn, allow device owners to hook up their E-mount lenses, and if you’re in the market for a superior point-and-shoot experience, the QX1 may be your perfect purchase.

We’re now just over one week away from the iPhone 6 event, and during the next seven or so days, we’re braced for a bunch of leaks as Apple tries desperately to keep those intricate details under lock-and-key. It stands to reason that, with a 5.5-inch display, the larger of the two new iPhone sizing configurations will need a much larger battery than that of the iPhone 5s, and having previously heard that the Cupertino company will almost double-up to a 2,915mAh offering, a new sighting has corroborated this notion.

Mobile security is very much in the news right now and for obvious reasons, with some celebrities having had some of their most compromising photos and video pop up online following an apparent iCloud security breach. Whether it is an actual security breach or simply the result of poor password choices, the incident has many considering the security of their data.

We’re not sure what we’re looking forward to the most when Apple takes the covers off the iPhone 6 – the chance to buy one or the end of all the leaks. Don’t get us wrong, we find the whole cat and mouse thing as much as anyone, but it does eventually start to get little bit silly.

It’s inevitable that once the iPhone 6 is announced on September 9th’s media event, it won’t be too long before we begin getting excited about what’s next with the iPhone 7. In fact, it often feels as though we’re constantly sitting in wait for the Next Big Thing once the novelty of the latest and greatest has worn off, and a rather humorous new comic documenting iPhone Fever completely hits the nail on the head.

We have a large selection of paid apps going free for iOS, and to mark Labor Day in the United States today, many developers are currently running epic deals. Below, you can find the entire selection worth well over $20, so be sure to join us after the break!

The iPhone 6 looks set to be announced by Apple next week, and it seems like every retailer and carrier is getting involved in hyping it up. O2, a major network operator in the United Kingdom, has joined in with the fanfare by posting a newspaper ad that refers to a secret, unannounced device, and although it could refer to a number of upcoming handsets, it’s clear that iPhone Fever is now gripping one of the UK’s foremost carriers.

Apple’s new iPhone 6 announcement is barely a week away now, and the excitement around the upcoming media event is at an all time high. The Cupertino tech giant is not only expected to unveil the new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 flagship smartphone, but also unveil the wearable lineup that might (or might not) end up being called the iWatch. Along with these, we are expecting to see the public availability of the iOS 8, the OS X Yosemite, and hopefully a few other goodies as well.

If you happen to be on a capped data plan, you’ll know all about using certain apps sparingly while monitoring roaming settings like a hawk. But while it’s seemingly obvious that a YouTube binge is going to quickly use up that precious quota, Apple’s iMessage is a comparatively silent culprit. After all, you can send images, videos, audio clips and text with relative ease, and unlike with WhatsApp and others, they’re not heavily compressed. If you want to keep abreast of iMessage’s data-usage habits, checking the amount of cellular MBs used is possible at stock level, and although the feature is a little obscure, you can easily access it with just a little bit of navigation.

Although the vast majority of our iPhone 6-related reports have revealed details of the smaller, 4.7-inch variant, the 5.5-inch model – also dubbed as the iPhone 6L or iPhone Air – has also been leaked quite frequently over the past few weeks, and now, we have what appears to be a legitimate leak of the more sizeable iPhone’s rear shell. As with the lion’s share of iPhone 6 tidbits, there’s no way of verifying the leak’s authenticity, but given that it ticks all of the boxes in terms of form factor and general plausibility, it’s definitely worth checking out.

If you’ve ever wanted to buy your favorite beverage using just your iPhone then you may be a step close to that reality after new reports appeared earlier that have Apple and major payment firms doing deals to bring mobile payments to iOS.

The fact that all iOS apps need to be approved by Apple in order to make their way into the App Store is both a blessing and a curse for the platform, but nobody can deny that it, most of the time at least, guarantees at least some sort of minimum design quality. It also means that developers often need to jump through hoops in order to get their hard work in front of those that they hope will download it.

Big breaches of security are never fun, but when you’re the provider of cloud storage that holds all kinds of personal data, things can get particularly hairy when someone finds a way through. That’s the situation Apple finds itself in today, or at least, that’s the claim.

It’s that time again folks. You know, the time when we let you in on which paid-for apps have gone free, usually for a limited time while hopefully not just saving you some money, but also giving you the opportunity to pick up some apps that you were on the fence about when they had a dollar sign beside them.

The iPhone camera is the most popular camera on the planet as of now, and it’s not just something that cannot be backed up by facts; Flickr statistics clearly support this notion. It makes sense, too – when the original iPhone was launched back in 2007, the image quality was far superior to the competition despite being a fixed-focus, measly 2 megapixel shooter. Now we’re close to the iPhone 6’s launch, and the current flagship, the iPhone 5s, has a camera that’s come a long way since. It produces really good images, and it’s always with you in your pocket, making it camera of choice.
