When Apple announced that they were giving away their iWorks and iLife suite of apps to those who purchased and activated a new iOS device after September 1st, it was met with great applause. While these apps are great, not many people used them because they cost $9.99 each. Now, if you activate a new device after September 1, 2013, you get them all for free. That includes, iPhoto, iMovie, Keynote, Pages, Numbers and even Garageband. With the new Retina iPad Mini now hitting the store shelves (today), some of you may be looking to upgrade...

Over a year ago, I wrote an article for iPhone Life Magazine, which covered the iOS game, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas. Since then, the developer, CornFox & Bros. have been working away to make this action adventure title all it could be. Without a doubt, there will be comparisons to Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Windwaker, but the folks at Cornfox have done an amazing job of bringing such an ambitious title to iOS. The game features over 10 hours of gameplay, with epic battles and a refined and easy to use game mechanic....

So it’s only been a few hours since Apple announced that the iPad Mini with a Retina Display would go on sale today and we have one in hand. Thanks to some friends at my local Best Buy, who told me when their shipment would arrive, I now have a 16GB Space Grey unit in hand, and so far, it’s amazing!

I’m still waiting for a majority of my apps to download from...

When Apple revealed its update to iOS 7, developers and users alike knew that apps they previously made or used, would have to be updated. When Apple announced the release of iOS 7, the App Store was flooded with “compatible” apps. Some of these apps were merely updated to function properly with the new OS, while other apps were “re-designed”...

The new iPad Mini wasn’t the only iPad to get a boost, Apple’s flagship tablet received a much needed makeover and spec boost too. The new iPad, now called the iPad Air, because it’s so thin and light—after all, they did shave off almost a half a pound on the tablet’s weight, now looks like the iPad Mini. Like the Mini and iPhone 5s, it also features the new 64-bit A7 processor, MIMO WiFi and like the Mini, features an improved 5-megapixel iSight camera. Apple really did a fantastic job on the iPad Air, but they...

As expected, Apple announced a new version of the iPad Mini, with the rumored Retina display. The new mini now sports a resolution of 2048 x 1536, the same resolution as the full size iPad and it’s also the highest resolution on any tablet below 9.8 inches. To power the new, pixel dense display, is the new 64-bit A7 processor found in the iPhone 5S, which Apple promises will deliver 4x the performance in everyday tasks and 8x the graphics performance over the previous model. Despite having more pixels and a more powerful processor,...

Tomorrow, Apple will take the stage in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to announce a slew of new things, like the newly redesigned Mac Pro, OSX Mavericks and possible new MacBook Pros, but the main attraction will be the new iPads. The iPad 5 or possibly the “new” iPad will remain at 9.8 inches, but will now take on the form factor of the smaller iPad Mini, with a faster processor, more RAM and of course iOS 7. The one big question that has loomed over this product event is whether or not Apple will announce...

Right on schedule, Apple has begun sending out invites to their mid-fall event, scheduled for next week on October 22nd. The upcoming event will primarily focus on the new iPads, as the larger (9.7-inch) iPad will be getting its first “major” overhaul, which will resemble the smaller iPad Mini. The iPad Mini, which is expected to be in short supply, will finally feature the long requested Retina Display. Both iPads are rumored to carry Apple’s Touch ID sensor, like the iPhone 5S, as well as the updated, more powerful,...

Assuming you haven’t already heard, Apple will be preparing to take the stage in San Francisco again this year, on October 22nd. The rumor was started by sources who spoke with the AllThingsD, but was later confirmed by Apple insider, Jim Dalrymple of The Loop, with his infamous reply of “Yep.” Dalrymple who has contacts within the walls of Apple’s compound, usually is pin point accurate when a rumored event date rears its head, giving his usual replies of either “Yep” or “Nope”. So it looks...

At this point, we all know Apple is going to have another event later this month and will most likely announce the redesigned iPad 5, OSX Mavericks and maybe even the newly redesigned Mac Pro. The only item that’s still in question is Apple’s iPad Mini. It’s been rumored for sometime that Apple was looking to squeeze in a Retina display into their smaller tablet, but the hang up has been due to poor battery performance. Typically when Apple replaces an older model, they like to either meet or beat the previous model’s...
