Apple’s OS X 10.7 Lion was a substantial upgrade, with a ton of new features and improvements that gave users a premium desktop experience. Apple’s latest feline offering, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, has been generally well received, but needs a little softening around the edges.

With Apple battling Samsung over multiple patent infringements, Motorola joins the fight against Apple and continues where it left off two years ago. This time, the company is controlled by Google, who have a competitive reason to attempt banning several Apple devices in the USA.

It is well known that the iOS 6 update will make FaceTime over cellular data possible, but the guys at AT&T don’t seem to be much interested in this new feature, limiting its use to shared data plans only. Essentially, this means that video calls will only be available for your family members or close friends in some cases, which will be a major issue for some users, but nothing a good iPhone jailbreak can’t solve. It was…

With the news that the iPad Mini design is already in Apple’s workshop, people have been wondering how the rumored 7-inch device will look like compared to the full-sized iPad and some other tablets out there.

Waves of rumors about a number of Apple products have been hitting the shore lately, but the statement made by Piper Jefferies analyst Peter Misek about Apple setting the iPad Mini and the new Apple TV for full production might end up to be true.

Many rumors have surrounded Apple’s 7.85-inch foray into the diminutive tablet market, the so called the iPad Mini, with claims of a non-retina display, new aspect ratio and leaked parts and images. One of the latest reports suggest that the Cupertino-based company wants to protect the iPad Mini display with an ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) layer to help reduce radio noise. ITO is a transparent layer that conducts electricity and helps reduce radio interference, resulting in better…

A hacker known by the name of pod2g has discovered that Apple’s mobile operating system contains a SMS vulnerability which can be very bad for the phone’s security, once taken advantage of. The bug seems to have been originated since the birth of iOS itself and it’s still present in the latest tested version, iOS 6 beta 4. Although the iOS 6 SMS bug can be exploited due to a door left open by Apple…

It seems that Samsung may be preserving the same looks of the Galaxy S III and implement them in the next Note device, as pictures with the Galaxy Note 2 have surfaced. Most certainly, the tablet-phone will also be known as N7100 and it should arrive with interesting technical specifications. The picture was leaked courtesy of GSMArena, but the source is yet sure if this will be the real deal or if it’s just a…

The next generation mobile operating system from Apple, known as iOS 6, is rumored to introduce a new kind of updating system, called Delta updates.

Just yesterday we’ve present pictures with most of the iPhone 5’s internal parts, but considering the fact that the source was Chinese, only some of the parts could have been identified but an untrained eye. Now iFixYouri comes to solve the puzzle by releasing a translated diagram which also completes the gaps in the leaked platform and places relevant parts within. It seems that the full list of iPhone 5 parts will include a front…
