Instagram's bringing stabilized time-lapse video to iPhone with Hyperlapse

Instagram's second app is coming, and it's called Hyperlapse. The app combines some really intelligent video stabilization with time lapse techniques. It's not unlike the hyperlapse stabilization demoed by Microsoft earlier this month, except that it's coming as an app for your iPhone. Unlike Instagram, which has long-featured filters as a premiere element of the experience, Hyperlapse's only filters are stabilization and speed.

History of iPhone 4S: The most amazing iPhone yet

Leading up to the iPhone 6 event we're updating and expanding our series on the history of the iPhone, continuing with the most amazing one yet — the iPhone 4S

Nothing about 2011 was normal for Apple. Tim Cook had introduced the Verizon iPhone 4 at the beginning of the year and Apple had finally shipped the white iPhone 4 by spring. But unlike previous years, WWDC 2011 came and went with nary a mention nor a glimpse of a new iPhone. Steve Jobs went on medical leave again, and in August resigned as CEO. On October 4, 2011, Apple's new CEO, Tim Cook, senior vice president of worldwide product marketing, Phil Schiller, and other executives took the stage at a special media called "Let's Talk iPhone". There, they introduced the most amazing iPhone yet. The iPhone 4S.

The next day, October 5, 2011, Steve Jobs died.

That the people involved in the presentation had been able to get through it at all is a testament to their professionalism and resolve. Yet they had a company to run and their biggest product launch of the year to complete.

History of iPhone 4: Changing everything — again

Leading up to the iPhone 6 event we're updating and expanding our series on the history of the iPhone, continuing with the device that changed everything — again — the iPhone 4

Steve Jobs returned to the WWDC keynote stage on June 7, 2010. He'd introduced the iPad earlier in the year, and kicked things off with an update on how it, and the App Store had been doing (spoiler: Well!). Then he turned his attention to iPhone, and after recapping everything Apple had done to date, he began on what would come next. It had over 100 new features. It has an all-new design, an all-new camera, and an all new screen resolution. It was hot. It was the iPhone 4

History of iPhone 3GS: Faster and more powerful

Leading up to the iPhone 6 event we're updating and expanding our series on the history of the iPhone, continuing with the more powerful iPhone 3GS

Steve Jobs didn't give the WWDC keynote on June 8, 2009. He was away on medical leave. So, a team of Apple executives soldiered on without him. That included Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Phil Schiller, who's task was to fill the biggest New Balances in the business for what was becoming Apple's biggest business. Schiller started off quoting Time Magazine's praise for the last generation, "the phone that has changed phones forever." He'd go on to make that phone more affordable forever, while also introducing its successor. It boasted twice the speed, both for processing and data networking. It was the iPhone 3GS.

History of iPhone 3G: Twice as fast, half the price

Leading up to the iPhone 6 event we're updating and expanding our series on the history of the iPhone, continuing with the faster, less expensive iPhone 3G

At WWDC 2008 on June 9, after finalizing the details of the upcoming App Store, and summing up the original iPhone's achievements, the late Steve Jobs dove into the next challenges Apple had to face, the next mountain they had to climb. On the surface, they were obvious even before Jobs bulleted them on stage — 3G, Enterprise, third-party apps, more countries, and more affordable. The software changes came as part of iPhone OS 2.0. The hardware, iPhone 3G.

History of iPhone: Apple reinvents the phone

Leading up to the iPhone 6 event we're updating and expanding our series on the history of the iPhone, starting with the original!

On January 9, 2007 the late Steve Jobs put sneaker to Macworld stage to give one of the most incredible keynote presentations of his life — a life filled with incredible keynotes — and in the history of consumer electronics. There, he said he would be introducing a wide-screen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough internet device. But it wasn't three products. It was one product. We got it. It was the iPhone.

Skeptics Guide to the Universe 475: iPhone performance

Evan Bernstein was kind enough to invite me to join Steven Novella and the rest of the panel for a segment on this week's episode of Skeptics Guide to the the Universe. The topic was the recent "iPhone slow" conspiracy theory making the rounds, and we spent about 10 minutes discussing it. The segment starts about 45 minutes in, but if you're into science the whole show is worth a listen.

Alleged images of 'iPhone 6L' showcase 2915 mAh battery, display and logic board

Apple is heavily rumored to be considering two different screen sizes for the iPhone 6, with one model claimed to feature a 4.7-inch display and the other a 5.5-inch screen size. While there have been a steady stream of leaks referencing the 4.7-inch model, there hasn't been much in the way of leaked images when it comes to the 5.5-inch variant, until now. Taiwanese blog Apple Daily seems to be one of the first to post alleged photos of the device, which the website claims will be called the iPhone 6L.

'iPhone slow' explained: The truth about iOS updates

The charge that iOS updates deliberately slow down older iPhones gets regurgitated every so often. It's a sensational charge so it gets sensationalized. Most recently some research into correlation vs. causation in big data analytics and how it shouldn't be misinterpreted was — wait for it — widely misinterpreted. Whether regurgitators failed to read all the way through the research, or simply decided to ignore it in service of sensationalism doesn't really matter. The resulting misinformation and confusion is the same. So, what's really going on with iOS updates and older devices?
