Chinese case and accessory makers are always a mile ahead when it comes to making accessories for unannounced hardware, and like every year, things aren’t so different this time either, with an electronics fair being held in Hong Kong that showcases mockups of Apple’s next flagship smartphone along with its yet-to-be released accessories.

With in-car sound specialist Alpine looking set to bring CarPlay support to existing automobiles following a report on Monday, it now appears as though rival Pioneer will also be offering something similar. In line with speculation that hit the blogosphere shortly after CarPlay was introduced alongside the iOS 7.1 software update, Pioneer will offer a CarPlay-facilitating update to a select group of its more recent in-car systems.

The iPhone may have been a major contributing factor in the fall from grace of standalone consoles like the Game Boy, but this isn’t to say that we, as gaming fans, don’t have something of a soft spot for the old handhelds. With the recent spate of emulators enabling jailbroken iOS device users to enjoy the ROMs of various antiquated devices, one individual has sought to make the experience even more realistic by creating the ‘G-pad,’ a nifty, silicone-comprised accessory that wraps around the iPhone, a offering physical, Game Boy-esque set of buttons, and is designed specifically for GBA4iOS.

A couple of new leaks have emerged today that may once again offer clues as to what we should expect of the so-called iPhone 6. Given that the model packing a 5.5-inch display has been hit by delays, we’re anticipating that Apple will deliver a new handset with a 4.7-inch panel around September time, and an interesting apparent leak of the device’s front panel seems to back this notion up.

The iOS Messages app may have benefited greatly from the introduction of iMessage, but in terms of features, hasn’t quite evolved as much as some users – this one included – might have liked. As soon as the Evasi0n jailbreak was released a few months back, many iOS device users flocked to the message-enhancing utilities available via Cydia, including the very popular BiteSMS, and if you’re looking for an easy way to create and deal with messages without having to continually consult the native stock app, then you may wish to check out a nifty new tweak by the name of auki.

The probability of the next-gen iPhone sporting a 4.7-inch display seems to increase with each new discovery, and today, a mold of what its alleged to be the iPhone 6 only underlines this ongoing belief. Given that a further, 5.5-inch version of the next Apple smartphone seems beset by delays and other issues, the focus of the spotlight is now almost squarely upon the smaller handset sporting a 4.7-inch panel, and although it’s hard to glean much by way of specifics from today’s new leak, the depicted mold appears as though it could facilitate a display of roughly this size.

It’s an accepted fact that Apple changed the face of the smartphone industry with the introduction of the iPhone back in 2007, and even though it has only been seven years, it feels as though we’ve always been tapping home screen icons and gesturing our way through interfaces. Not only did the iPhone completely turn the market on its head, but Google’s in-development Android interface – which didn’t, at the time of the Apple smartphone’s announcement, support touch input – also had to be completely re-thought.

In the earlier days of the modern smartphone, it was the new, casual games that really caught our attention, with the likes of Angry Birds and Cut the Rope really taking a stronghold. But as devices have improved considerably during the past few years, developers of famed PC and console apps have seen the mobile market as an important outlet, and joining the many classic titles to reach the mobile platforms, Age of Empires will soon be heading to the App Store, the Windows Phone Store, and Google’s Play Store.

Early on last month, Apple announced CarPlay, the final, official branding of the ‘iOS in the Car’ feature first announced last year. With the necessary software having been rolled out to iPhones via the iOS 7.1 update, we’re now awaiting the release of the first fleet of CarPlay-ready production automobiles, but while the likes of Mercedes and Volvo plan on integrating the feature as a part of the manufacturing process, specialist audio company Alpine is reportedly plotting its very own aftermarket console effort.

The App Store may already be choc-full of top games that are designed for the large touch screens that adorn iPads and iPhones, but that doesn’t stop some of us from yearning for the games of yesteryear. If you’re carrying a jailbroken iOS device then there is no shortage of ways to get your nostalgic fix, but it’s not always quite so simple if you’re not.

A number of new photos have recently emerged that claim to show some important information pertaining to the production and development of Apple’s next-generation iPhone. The collection of photos have risen to prominence thanks to Chinese social networking site Weibo, claiming to show a number of in-depth schematics for the iPhone 6 as well as the production molds that are used to manufacture the exterior of the smartphone.

We love apps. In fact, if there’s one thing we love more than apps, it’s an app that usually costs money and is now free for a limited time only. Which brings us to Printer Pro.

Before the iPhone made its grand entry into our lives, mobile gaming was mainly done on standalone, dedicated devices like Sony’s PlayStation Portable, or PSP. Even though the App Store, along with Google Play and the Windows Phone Store now offer graphically-intensive that at times, exceed what the PSP is capable of, it’s still fun to dust the old consoles down now and again for a bit of nostalgia-induced fun. Thanks to a feature-rich PSP emulator, though, you can now relive those much-loved PSP games on your iOS device, and below, you’ll see exactly how it’s done.

You mightn’t even know of Activator’s existence, but the chances are – if you’re jailbroken and running a series of tweaks – that you have the famed tweak installed on your iOS device. It enables certain actions and events to be triggered by gestures or button presses, and as a long-time jailbreaker myself, it’s certainly the cornerstone of my Cydia diet. Today its inventor, Ryan Petrich, has offered a glimpse of an updated version, which offers some neat battery-triggered functions.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie is pretty much just around the corner, with the action film hitting the theatres on May 2.

At the tail-end of last year, we presented a guide that showed jailbroken iOS 7 users how to utilize the Cydia Store for the purpose of speeding up their devices. But if you don’t, for whatever reason, happen to have introduced your device to the wonders of Evasi0n, we’ve outlined a few tips that could help you speed up your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running stock firmware, specifically for hardware that is old, like the iPhone 4, 4s, etc.

I always find it amusing that, even though evidence pertaining to a forthcoming smartphone may change from report to report, the case makers always feel as though they’ve got the scoop. It hasn’t even been established whether or not Apple has pinned down a final design for the so-called “iPhone 6,” yet a snap of a case has just leaked into the wild, although naturally, we’re more than skeptical as to whether it actually tells us anything.

The Galaxy S5, which Samsung announced all the way back in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, is finally upon us, and while many early adopters will be flocking to stores today in order to pick up their very own unit, many consumers remain undecided. Those in search of a high-end handset will likely be weighing their prospective Galaxy S5 purchase up against other devices on the market, such as Apple’s iPhone 5s, and to help ease the decision-making process, a new, real-world speed test has emerged that pits Samsung’s latest and greatest up against the coveted iPhone 5s.
