iPhone 6 Review

iPhone 6 Review

There's that scene at the very beginning of Star Wars, where you see the blockade runner fleeing towards a planet, and it looks pretty big. Then you start seeing the Star Destroyer, and seeing it, and seeing it, and it redefines your whole perception of big. The iPhone 6 is not like that at all. While its 4.7-inch screen is significantly bigger than last year's 4-inch model, its thinner, rounder body makes most of that difference evaporate when it hits your hand.

That's why Apple is pitching the iPhone 6 as not only bigger but better — more advanced display technology, second generation 64-bit processor and motion coprocessor, improved cameras, faster cellular and Wi-Fi networking, and a new transaction system called Apple Pay.

Yet power is far less important than empowerment. What good is a bigger display if it doesn't make the iPhone more accessible to more people? What good are better specs if they don't make the iPhone more capable in more ways?

That's the audacity that underlies both the new iPhone 6 and the even bigger iPhone 6 Plus — that Apple can not only increase the size of the iPhone but once against expand the reach of personal computing.

So, can they? That's what the complete iPhone 6 Review is all about.

How to set messages to automatically delete themselves in iOS 8

How to set messages to automatically delete themselves in iOS 8

One of the largest culprits when it comes to chewing through the storage on your iPhone or iPad is the Messages app. From regular text messages to iMessages to photos, videos, and audio notes, they all take up space. In some cases, several gigabytes. However, iOS 8 brings with it an awesome feature that lets you set messages to delete automatically after a set amount of time. That means more storage space freed up regularly without you actually having to think about it!
