iPhone to iPhone 6: History in specs

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the latest in a line of Apple phones stretching back to the original in 2007. Year after year, release after release, they've grown bigger, faster, more powerful, and better. You can see it in the specs and feel it in the experience. Now, some people believe specs mean everything. That you can sum up any phone, any device, by the rows on a spreadsheet. Other people believe specs mean nothing. That it is experience and experience alone that defines a device. The truth, as is often the case, lies smack in between. Specs matter in that they're needed to deliver an experience. If the specs aren't sufficient, the experience will suffer. If they specs aren't utilized, then they don't matter. Since Apple uniquely controls everything from the chipset to the software and services, they're best positioned to wring every ounce of experience out of their specs. So, with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, what are those specs?

Clearing up the iCloud Drive confusion: No, there's no iCloud Drive app on iOS!

The launch of iOS 8 brought with it the launch of iCloud Drive, and... a whole lot of confusion. Apple stated during the WWDC keynote that while iCloud Drive was coming to both the Mac and iOS, there would not be a standalone iCloud Drive app. That's not a problem with OS X Yosemite because it's built right into the Finder, but iOS doesn't have a Finder either, so the only way to access iCloud Drive on an iPhone or iPad is through an app like Numbers, Keynote, Pages, or an App Store app. Cue the internet pitchforks and torches. So, what's really going on with iCloud Drive on iOS, and how can you get to your files?

Did you update to iOS 8?

Did you update to iOS 8?

The dust is starting to settle as the great iOS 8 update is now with us. Despite all of the issues with download queues, long install times and potentially having to clear out oodles of space on our devices to accept the OTA, update day has a very different level of importance for every different person. Some of us are hovering as it approaches 10 a.m. PDT ready to hit the button as soon as it appears, others point blank don't want it – or can't have it – and there are those, perhaps wise souls, who prefer to wait it out a few days and see what issues there may be lurking beneath the surface. So, which camp do you fall into?

What iCloud Drive storage plan should you get?

iCloud Drive is revamping the traditional iCloud service we've been using for a few years now. Instead of just being able to house your contacts, calendars, Photo Stream, and backups, iCloud Drive can act as a central repository for lots of different kinds of files. You can then access these files through various different kinds of apps. iCloud Drive can also help take some of the strain off of your physical storage constraints if you need it to. You'll need to pick a monthly subscription plan that dictates how much iCloud Drive storage space you get to share and access on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac or PC.

So which storage plan is right for your needs? Follow along and I'll help you decide!
