Review: iOS 6

Adam Shear

With the iPhone 5 on the horizon, Apple will also release with it an update to iOS, the operating system that powers the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Most iOS users will enjoy this free update on September 19 which comes with plenty of new goodies to keep your device feeling fresh and new.  iOS 6 is the sixth major iOS update. Every previous update has had its claim to fame with the App Store in iOS 2.0, copy and paste in iOS 3.0, multitasking in iOS 4.0, and iCloud in iOS 5.0. Each of these features have changed the way iOS devices are used. Does iOS 6 change the way iOS is used, or does it happen to be the least important major iOS update to date?

Like other iOS updates, iOS 6 comes with over 100 new features. Through this review, I will go over many of its major features and put my concluding thoughts in the end. All of the screenshots you see come from my iPhone 4S during the three months I have been testing a beta version of iOS 6. Continue reading

Review: The New Apple TV

Adam Shear

While Appl

e has many famous product lines, there is one that hasn’t received as much attention. Apple’s device used to bring iTunes content to your HDTV has gone through significant changes from the first generation model to second generation. The second generation relied completely on streaming video in 720p HD and lacked the bulky, expensive hard drive the first version relied on. It also brought Internet streaming services like Netflix and YouTube. The final major feature the second generation Apple TV brought to the world was AirPlay which allows one to play videos from an iOS device on their big screen TV. Aside from The new iPad, Apple also launched the third generation Apple TV on March 16. This new Apple TV finally brings us streaming video in 1080p HD and an all new user interface. Does the Apple TV deliver as a great set top box or is this tiny black box still a hobby product for Apple enthusiasts?

Editorial: The Bright Future of Siri

Adam Shear

With the iPhone 4S, Apple has brought a magical new feature to separate this new iPhone from the rest, Siri. Originally being an application, Apple bought the company Siri not too long ago after their voice recognition app, which was deleted off of the App Store recently, became a success. From there, it was obvious that Siri would go from being an impressive app to being a native part of the iOS experience. I might have not said too many good things about Siri in my iPhone 4S review, but my opinions really have changed since then. I am now always able to access Siri and no longer get error messages saying that Siri cannot connect to the network. Kudos to Apple on fixing that. Siri also feels more accurate as I have noticed a few less errors when I use it.

Taking The Hassle Out Of Data Transfer – Presenting CloudFTP

Eric Engoron

Have you ever wanted to take data off of a USB and put it on your iPad, iPhone, or any other wireless device? If you have, you know that this process is a hassle that involves your computer as a middleman to bridge the USB and your device, and then you have to do all that tedious dragging and dropping. However, CloudFTP, a kickstarter project by the Sanho Corporation, promises to be a game changer that eliminates the middleman.

Earwax Be Gone!, Says Apple Patent

Neel

Grossed out by sharing those gross earwax filled headphones with your friends? Well Apple hears you and is working on some solutions. According to a newly published Apple patent, Apple will most probably add speakers to their nano or shuffle models, without compromising its compact design.

Not surprisingly, the move comes after the declining sales of the iPod line, (last quarter, Apple only sold 6.6 million iPods, a 27 percent decline from the same period in 2010). Apple CEO Time Cook said iPod is a “large and important product” for the company, and hopes that the new features, along with a price drop will breathe new life into iPod sales. But the hopes for new features don’t stop there. According to an industry expert, the new feature “might point to the nano being used to interface with an iOS device”. So, maybe in the near future, the nano might have the power to sync with your iPhone and display text messages and calls directly on its screen. The expert believes that the addition of a speaker alone wouldn’t make any big difference, but believes that more new features like activating Siri might also be even possible.

Well whatever the future holds for the nano, the addition of speakers is definitely exciting for me. I have always wondered why they didn’t bother to put speakers on the newer models of the nano, and now that they are, I definitely think that a lot of people will be excited for this new feature.

Siri And The 4S

Manu Singh

Will older iDevices ever support Siri legally, from an update by Apple? Information from a leaked email states that Apple’s intention was never to support the Siri feature on other, older devices. However, what is the differences between the 4S and the other iDevices? From the source, iFixit, the only difference is that the 4S has gotten an upgraded proximity sensor and microphone, for Siri to know you are going to ask something. The real question is: do the previous iDevices really need this upgraded equipment? Seems like some hackers want to prove Apple wrong!
