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!

Verizon won't throttle its heaviest unlimited data users after all

Verizon is backtracking on its plan to begin throttling data hogs on grandfathered unlimited plans on its 4G LTE network today. Originally, the carrier announced that starting on October 1, unlimited customers who use excessive data on a strained cell site may see their data speeds temporarily reduced, but after public backlash the carrier is now reversing its policy so that there will be no throttling.

Following its rivals, Verizon brings more data to More Everything plans

Following the lead of AT&T and Sprint, Verizon Wireless will now be giving subscribers of its More Everything plans even more data, though you'll have to sign up this month to qualify. More data begins with the 12 GB plan, which will now net you a 15 GB data bucket each month, and goes all the way up to the 50 GB data plan, which through the promotion will double your data to a whopping 100 GB to consume. That's a lot of Netflix streaming to consume each month!

I will finally cancel my print magazine subscriptions when Apple releases a 12.9" iPad

With word surfacing today that Apple may release a 12.9" version of the iPad in 2015, I'd be adding something stiffer than cream to my morning cup of jo if I were an executive on the print side of the magazine industry. Digital media has been attacking print for a long time now and it's a trend that is only going to continue. I believe a 12.9" iPad Pro would steepen the degree of that decline. At the least, I know it will impact my print magazine consumption.

How to generate and manage app-specific passwords with iCloud

How to generate and manage app-specific passwords with iCloud

Apple has increased security around iCloud and how apps and devices can access your data. One of the newest forms of iCloud security is the use of app-specific passwords. Essentially, any apps that don't support two-step verification, if you have it enabled, will instead need an app-specific password in order to link up to your iCloud account. This ensures that your primary Apple ID password isn't collected or stored by any third party apps. Luckily, generating app-specific passwords and managing them is easy enough!
