Android Wear on iPhone: How it might happen and what it'll mean

The slow trickle of rumors surrounding iOS support for Android Wear came to a head today, with a report from The Verge stating that Google is a "close to finishing the final technical details" involved with getting its wearables to work with Apple's phones.

On the face of it, it seems surprising — an unholy union of Apple and Android. The mere possibility of Android Wear support coming to the iPhone with the Apple Watch imminent raises several questions, not least how Apple might react to an Android-branded thing encroaching on its ecosystem. Will Cupertino block the companion app because it's Android Wear? Will the company throw up roadblocks simply because it's a competitor?

We'll examine these questions and more after the break. Read on.

Have an iPhone 6 Plus you want to protect but not cover up? There's a great clear case for that!

Are you planning on switching to iPhone for Apple Watch?

The Apple Watch could be the first mainstream wearable computer, but you'll need an iPhone to use it.

In a recent survey, thirteen percent of respondents who didn't own an iPhone said they'd consider buying one just to get an Apple Watch. Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, also recently said that more Android owners were switching to iPhone than ever before. Combine them together, and that's potentially millions of first-time smartphone buyers and Android converts ready to put Apple products in their pockets and on their wrists this month. Are you one of them?

For Samsung, turns out Karma's a 'bendgate'

"Bendgate" was last year's largely manufactured media crisis — you know, the negative attention grab that always seems to come up any time Apple launches a new iPhone.

Six months later and it's recognized now as the theater some of us saw it for back then. Indeed, my own iPhone 6 Plus, bought at launch day and kept in my front pocket almost constantly ever since, remains as flat and solid as a board. That didn't stop some of Apple's competitors from jumping on the hype in hopes of scoring some cheap attention of their own.

How to switch from the Samsung Galaxy S to the iPhone 6

Samsung has released their new Galaxy S6 and if you're disappointed you waited, or tried it out and decided it wasn't for you, here's how to switch — or switch back to the iPhone.

The only constant with Samsung is change. Every year is feels like they try something different. That can make it both interesting and maddening for those already using one of the company's phones, or waiting to see what using one might be like. Take the all-new Samsung Galaxy S6 by way of example. It swaps out the plastic casing, replaceable battery, SD card slot, and water-proofing of last year's model for a metal chassis, and Touch ID- and Apple Pay-like features that seem right out of the iPhone's playbook. So, whether you feel like Samsung is no longer filling your needs, or if you're going to iPhone-like you might as well go iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus proper, here's what you need to know to switch — or switch back — to iPhone.

What would you change about iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus?

If Apple sticks to pattern, we've got a similarly designed iPhones 6s coming our way this year, and a redesigned iPhones 7 coming our way next.

It's been six months since the launch of the current generation iPhones, so it seems like as good a time as any to start dreaming about the next. From 2007 to now we've gone from 3.5 to 5.5 inches, 480x320 to 1920x1080, EDGE to LTE-Advanced, dumb mics and buttons to Siri and Touch ID, and much, much more. Where could we go next?

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus review: Six months later

It's been six months since we published our original iPhone 6 review and iPhone 6 Plus review, and ninety days since we revisited it in our three months later review.

We've now lived with Apple's big and bigger new iPhones for a half a year. We've taken a ton of pictures. We've pushed the Apple A8 processor and we've charged and discharged the battery over and over again. We've kept them in our pockets and we've dropped them on our floors. We've roamed with them. We've talked to and with them. And we've stared at their screens. A lot. As such, we've had time to evolve our initial thoughts and feelings. And that means it's time to take one more look at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, iMore roundtable, six months later…
