iOS 7 preview: Safari amps up search, tabs, sharing, reading, and more!

Safari is one of the most important apps on iOS, and so it's not surprising it gets one of the biggest redesigns in iOS 7. The gateway to the web on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Apple finally gives it a unified search bar, along with some slick new social features, a better reading list, and an all-new, all awesome new tab interface that really shows off the objectification, gamification, and general dynamism of iOS 7. Here's what Apple has to say about the new Safari features in iOS 7:

Olloclip Telephoto Lens for iPhone review: Bring distant objects into focus without using zoom

Olloclip's Three-In-One Lens System for the iPhone was a game-changer - an adapter that clipped on to the corner of the iPhone or iPod touch to provide you with separate wide-angle, macro and fish-eye lenses. There was one thing missing, though - a telephoto lens. Olloclip recently announced its Telephoto Lens for iPhone and iPod touch. I've been using it for the last few days and I think it's fantastic.

iOS 7 preview: Big improvements for big business

iOS 7 continues Apple's tradition of consistently improving and extending Enterprise support for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Today's Enterprise day on Talk Mobile 2013, so let's talk iOS 7 and Enterprise...

iOS 7 preview: Activation lock aims to keep out the crooks

Find my iPhone - also referred to as Find my iPod or Find my iPad on those devices - has always been a great way to help you find your phone or tablet under a sofa, in another room, or even at a restaurant, coffee shop, theater, or similar public place. It's been great for lost devices. Stolen devices, not so much. Now, with iOS 7, Apple is addressing theft with what they hope is a powerful new deterrent - activation lock. With Talk Mobile 2013 security week underway, lets see how it stands up...

iOS 7 preview: iOS in the Car hints at the future of iOS everywhere

iOS in the Car isn't arriving this year with the rest of iOS 7. It's currently scheduled to arrive in 2014 instead, and that's because it requires the support of car companies, who have to enable the ability to receive it into their in-dash display systems. Traditionally Apple hasn't done as well when they have to depend on other companies, but the potential of iOS in the Car seems to go further than just the car. Indeed, it could provide our first hints of iOS everywhere, and that's incredibly exciting for 2014, and beyond. However, Apple touts 95% of car makers already include some form of iPod/iOS device integration, so what better place to start?

OS X Mavericks Preview: Safari Power Saver cuts Flash off at the knees

With the rise of HTML 5 and the dominance of the iPad as a web surfing tool, use of Adobe Flash is on the wane, but it's still used by thousands of sites. Apple's done its part to try to move progress forward by leaving Adobe Flash out of the default configuration of newly shipping Macs, leaving it to customers to decide if they want to enable the technology on their own systems. But once it's on, Adobe Flash can cause other issues on your Mac. Now Apple's doing something about it, thanks to Power Saver, a feature coming to Safari with OS X Mavericks' release.

Evomail for iPhone and iPad review: Full email folder support for the organizationally obsessed!

Evomail is an alternative email app for iPhone and iPad that takes a lot of the same features we love from Mailbox, Dispatch, and more but adds certain highly wanted features that a lot of others unfortunately lack, such as folder support. Evomail currently supports Gmail, iCloud, and Yahoo! accounts which makes it a pretty relevant option for almost everyone.

Riptide GP 2 review: One of the best damn iOS games you'll play this year

Riptide GP 2 is here, and as with the original the folks at Vector Unit have delivered something stunning for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Hitting the App Store today as a long awaited follow up to the original Riptide GP, what we have is something more beautiful, more fun to play, and an all round fantastic mobile game.

For those not familiar with the original; Riptide GP is a water based racing game that sees you pilot powerful Jet Skis around a variety of circuits with differing difficulty. It's appeal goes beyond those who like racing games, because this isn't your typical racing game. The waves affect your lines into corners, throw you up in the air, and it takes a different all round strategy to finish first. So, let's take a look.
