iPhone

Apple makes a $17,000 Apple Watch — why not a luxury iPhone too?

You can buy an iPhone 6 from Apple anodized with matte gold coloring. It's a nice enough phone, but it's no luxury.

That gold iPhone costs no more than one in silver or space gray, and it does nothing else different. Apple also makes a solid gold Apple Watch. It costs much more than a standard aluminum or steel Apple Watch. The Apple Watch Edition has a nicer buying experience and improved customer support (not that Apple's ever been lacking in that department). But even at up to $17,000 it too does nothing that a $350 Apple Watch Sport doesn't do.

Apple iPhone Lightning Dock review

The new Apple iPhone Lightning Dock promises to be compatible with everything from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 6 Plus.

It accomplishes that minor miracle by eschewing the old, grooved design of the past for new, flat one that presents only a surface and a Lightning connector. That way the width of the phone doesn't matter now, nor will it matter into the future. So we know the new dock is flexible — but is it any good?

Review: ETA drives speedy directions and traffic prediction to Apple Watch

Want to get somewhere quickly — and know how long it will take you? ETA's on the job.

At the beginning of this year, my roller derby league moved their practice space north of Boston, changing my five-minute commute to somewhere in the 55-minute vicinity. Boston is notorious for its rush hour traffic, and our move meant that for the first time, my naive work-at-home self was routinely stuck in it.

Lucky for me, I had ETA.

The week's best iPhone games: Bounce Baby, Geometry Wars 3, and more!

So many iPhone and iPad games, so little time.

The #ShotOniPhone6 hashtag now highlights not only the quality of iPhone videos, but the artistry of iPhone videographers.

It's no secret the iPhone is one of the most popular camera in the world, and the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the best cameras Apple has ever made. That includes videographers who have done everything from shows to commercials to documentaries and more.

What artists all over the world have been doing with those cameras, however, hasn't always gotten the attention it deserves. Enter #ShotOniPhone6. It kicked off back in March, but now it's kicking into high gear.

Giving up on Google

Google has made it clear: The company's stated goal is to organize all the world's data.

To organize it, Google first has to collect it, and to organize all of it, it has to collect you. All of you. If that's a concern, and it's leading to your having second thoughts about your involvement with Google, then switching to iPhone can be of tremendous benefit to you. With the iPhone, you can use the best of Google services if you want to, but you can also easily live Google-free. And if you're not yet sure, the iPhone lets you keep all your options open.
