    iPad Air 2 availability in stores

    Has anyone heard confirmation of when the Air 2 is going to start showing up in brick-and-mortar Apple Stores? I went to one on Sunday and was told "next Friday." I don't know if that means this Friday the 24th or the following Friday (Halloween). Right now, shipping estimates suggest that...

    iPhone 6 Plus Wallpaper Resolution

    Admins, feel free to move/rename the thread. I want to get the record straight on the 6 Plus. The screen resolution is 1920 by 1080, but it sounds like the *optimal* resolution is 2208 by 1242. It sounds like what happens if you have an image at 1920 by 1080 is that the software blows it up to...

    Every iPhone Compared Side-by-Side

    http://www.tuaw.com/2014/09/21/watch-a-speed-test-of-every-iphone-from-6-to-2g/?ncid=rss_truncated I found that this comparison was not extensive enough. Maybe show each phone loading Apple's website, sending a picture message (where applicable), loading the camera app and taking some pictures...

    Charging routine for best battery life

    So my girlfriend overheard an Apple Store rep today telling someone to never charge the battery on the new iPhone unless it was below 30%. I'm pretty sure that rep was talking out of his... Is charging early and often still the best way to go to prolong long-term battery life?

    Handoff Issues

    Is anyone else having issues with this? I have my iPad Air and my iPhone 5 running iOS 8, but so far, I haven't seen any icons showing up in the lock screen on one after I've been using Safari or Mail on the other. I have Handoff enabled on both devices in the Settings app, and both devices are...

    Retina mini - First Impressions

    I just checked the Retina mini out at the Apple Store. Having looked at an iPad 3 and now my Air for a few years, I think the Retina mini screen still looks much worse than the full sized iPad. I know it doesn't make sense. I know that the mini now has more ppi - the same resolution on a...

    Disappointed with iPad Air specs and features

    No gold option. No TouchID. Still starts with the 16 GB option rather than moving to 32/64/128. I'm not saying it sucks, or that I won't get one, so don't start gathering twigs. I am a little disappointed though.

    Push Notifications and Battery Life

    I've been hesitant to use push notifications for any application that isn't native -- mail, messages, etc. Turned them all off on my iPhone (except Whatsapp when I used it) and have tried to avoid them on my iPad so far. However, the one thing that would keep me running back to my desktop...

    The New iPad Pre-Order Page is UP! (Kind of)

    Until about a minute ago, when you went to www.apple.com/ipad it took you to the old iPad 2 page. Now the new page is there, with a button in the top right that says "Pre-order now." However, the online Apple Store is still down.

    Interesting Remark from Anandtech

    To all of you saying that Bumpers aren't a "real fix" and prefer a recall involving coating the phone's antenna: "However, adding tape won’t completely eliminate the drop in received signal, nor does it mitigate the problem nearly as much as getting a case. In fact, if you’re really concerned...
