The first extra thing you buy when you get an iPhone is likely to be a speaker dock, and with good reason: having one gives you somewhere safe to set your iPhone down, that keeps its charge topped up and ready to go, and that gives your music some richness and power compared to the reedy little built-in speaker.
And it’s exactly the same with an iPad, except up until now there haven’t really been enough speaker docks built for Apple’s tablet for us to be able to out them together in an iPad speaker dock group test.
Happily, though, we’ve brought five together here, and spent [...]
If you’re a regular reader of this site, then you’re probably aware of iOS 5, the next major release of the operating system that runs on iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. While the system’s main features have been outlined by Apple two months ago, and the brilliant piece of software is believed to be very close to a public release, some still expect new features to be introduced at the last minute, perhaps exclusive to the long-awaited iPhone 5.
“Secret” last-minute features added to iOS is something which Apple brilliantly pulls off. Last year, the company unveiled iOS 4 for [...]
We have just reported about an issue with iTunes Activation Servers that is leaving thousands of iDevices around the world bricked. The issue occurs after the device is updated to the latest iOS 4.3.3 firmware using iTunes. The firmware update completes as it would normally, but after that, iTunes fails to activate the update via the activation servers, hence leaving iPhones, iPads and iPod touches bricked and useless, around the world. We hit upon a solution to fix iOS 4.3.3 bricked iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Read on below to find out more.
If the screenshot posted above is exactly what [...]
Developing for the iOS App Store is a no-brainer. If I said that a measly investment of £250 was enough to open up a market of 150 million consumers, the ears of any smart developer should prick up.
If I were to add that many of those consumers are Apple fans eager to part with their cash in an attempt to purchase software justifying the cost of their hardware, then you might well start to see why there are now 300,000 iPhone apps and 60,000 iPad apps two and a half years after the App Store launched.
The sheer size of the App Store is staggering, with more than twice as many apps available [...]
A BBC Interactive Operations Engineer has British hearts all aflutter tonight with a tweet announcing that the iPlayer app for the iPad is ready to roll out this Thursday, February 10th. It’s specific to the tablet for now, so no iPhone, and will only debut in the UK, so no BBC America for you just yet, though this is the first step toward making that cozy dream a reality. Taking the BBC TV catchup service into international waters will be done on the basis of a paid subscription model, which should dissuade all the TV License payers in the UK from revolting, but do bear in mind that [...]
Now that the number of App Store downloads to iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads around the world has handily exceeded the population of Planet Earth, we can hopefully put this story to bed until they hit another factor of ten — and as unreasonable as 100 billion downloads sounds, we’ll bet it actually won’t take that long. That’s right: just a few days after kicking off its online counter, Apple’s officially hit the 10 billion mark, which is a whole lot of software any way you slice it. So, Android Market, you’re next?

Apple Insider has received information from a “person with proven knowledge of Apple’s future product plans” that Apple will soon be introducing FaceTime/video-chat capable iPads.
How soon exactly? Well, according to the “person with proven knowledge”, no later than the first quarter of 2011!, and it makes sense cause that is the time when Apple introduced first-gen iPad early this year. The person also claims that there was an ambitious push inside Apple to refresh the launch ahead of the year’s holiday shopping season.
Though the inaugural fleet of iPads has seen surprising momentum [...]
