Apple will reportedly expand iOS beta testing to include Apple Store employees

We've already seen Apple open up testing a tad more with a public beta program for OS X Yosemite, and now it looks like the tech giant is set to open up a bit more on the iOS front as well. According to a new report, Apple will soon extend testing of pre-release iOS builds to its retail store employees.

What we want to see from Apple in 2015

With 2015 right around the corner, there's lots we could wish for. We could wish for the moon—or at the very least, a hoverboard prototype to show up at CES 2015. But as much fun as it is to wildly speculate on pie-in-the-sky ideas, we're going to travel a bit closer to Earth for our 2015 predictions. Here's what the editors of iMore actually want to see from Apple next year — unicorns and 50-inch Gene Munster-branded Apple TVs need not apply.

How to copy/paste between your Macs and iOS devices

A few weeks ago, I put a call out on Twitter for Continuity-based copy/paste apps:

Since 2010, I'd been using Syncopy to sync clipboards between my Macs; unfortunately, the app had been virtually untouched since its release, and it got buggier with every OS X release. And that's not even talking about its iOS support, which was minimal and very quickly outmoded.

So, 2015 around the corner. Time for a new app to sync my clipboard. What better resource to turn to than Twitter? And though I didn't find a Continuity-based app, the iCloud-based ones I did find are pretty fantastic.

Ten technology tips for your family members this holiday

Every time I come home for Christmas, my folks ask me to fix something technology-related in their home. They're very intelligent people and generally good with Macs, but somehow I always end up having to troubleshoot something. (This Christmas: controlling the Nest thermostat through their iOS devices.)

Whether your family members are tech-savvy or not, everyone appreciates a little holiday help now and then. In that spirit, here are ten of my favorite no-brainer tips to pass along this season. (I recommend printing, framing, or otherwise stickying the first five.)

iOS 8 review: 3 months later

Three months ago we reviewed iOS 8, arguably the most jam-packed versions of the iPhone and iPad operating system we've seen since the introduction of the App Store back in 2008. Since then we've gotten updates — up to iOS 8.1.2 on the production branch and iOS 8.2 beta 2 on the developer branch. We've gotten bug fixes, performance enhancements, and even more new features. But with the good comes the bad. With new possibilities come new frustrations and with new workflows come new bugs. So, how has it held up? How are we liking iOS 8 now, some three months later?

Continuity: Where it is now, and our hopes and dreams for the future

Continuity is one of the major new features across Apple's new operating systems, iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, and the one that's best embodied Apple's "integration" theme. It lets you AirDrop just about anything between your iPhone, iPad, and Mac. It makes hotspots instantly available. It relays your phone calls and SMS/MMS between your iPhone and your iPad or Mac, and back again. And it lets you handoff activity between all of your devices. Yet, for all Continuity does, it's still a version 1.0. That means there are some frustrations, but also a lot of hopes, dreams and wants for the future. Here they are!
