Where could Apple go with the iPhone 6 and Apple A8 chipset?

Last year Apple launched their second generation custom CPU as part of the Apple A7 system-on-a-chip found in the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and iPad mini Retina. Codenamed "Cyclone" it used the ARMv8 instruction set and was an industry first 64-bit. Thanks to some sleuthing and some new commit logs, Anand Lai Shimpi has presented a ton of technical details on what Apple has accomplished to date. Moreover, he's gone into the iPhone 6 and Apple A8 SoC, and what we might just see this year.

Would you get a HTC One (M8) style Dot View case for your iPhone?

Would you get a HTC One style Dot View case for your iPhone?

One of the more awesome new features that came with the launch of the new HTC One (M8) has given us a quick run through of it in the video up top. It looks awesome, and has HTC created a case that you'd love to have for your iPhone?

It isn't all out gimmick, either. The case actually has a capacitive layer so you can uses gesture controls to answer and reject calls, activate voice dialing, and even double-tap to turn on the Dot View display. But it looks cool as hell – or so we think!

Will you be getting Office for iPad?

Will you be getting Office for iPad?

So, it's finally happened. Microsoft Office is finally on the iPad after Microsoft formally introduced it at an event today. Office is one of those packages that some absolutely live in, and it's still one of the very best at what it does. As the iPad has grown in popularity over the years, Office has been noticably absent. But now that it's here, will you be getting it?

Weekly photo contest: Animals!

Animals are a great subject for photography. We aren't talking house pets here though, we're talking animals that you found outside. Whether it be birds, squirrels, a fox, or something else that's native to your area. Your task this week is to capture a great shot of an animal outdoors. Keep in mind a few things though — composition matters, and a photo of the family dog in the back yard won't take the prize. So get out there and find some interesting animal shots!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, April 1st at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

It's also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! And the winner is...

iOS 7.1 battery life the same or worse than before say iMore readers

A week ago we ran a reader poll asking about your iOS 7.1 battery life, and we've had some interesting results. A full week after the update came out, we'd all had a decent amount of time to discharge and recharge our iPhone and iPad batteries and get a better feel for whether or not anything had changed. Battery life differs from person to person, and in our sampling it looks as if the bad press on the issue may have had some standing.

What if the rumored iOS 8 Healthbook wasn't just for an iWatch but for an internet of health things?

One of the most persistent rumors for iOS 8 focuses on Healthbook, a Passbook-style, card-based "wallet" app that would collect all your fitness, nutrition, sleep, and medical data all in one place. These rumors have been tied to the iWatch as a way Apple could track more and better health-based information, but there's also been speculation that Apple might go broader.

What are the top 5 new features YOU want to see in iOS 8?

The iOS 8 rumors are running hot and heavy these days, what with everything from Healthbook to improved Maps with transit and indoor directions to a separate iTunes Radio app to TextEdit and Preview apps to inter-app communication, to — you get the idea. A lot of the excitement is because iOS 7 was such a major re-imagining of what a mobile operating system could and should be and iOS 7.1 gave us our first look at that all polished up. It was a herculean task by everyone at Apple but, once done, it opens the door on so many new and great possibilities. That's where you come in. What are the top 5 new features you want to see from Apple in iOS 8?
