App Store now highlighting "Pay once & play" games with no in-app purchases

The iPad and iPhone App Store now has a section featuring games that you pay for upfront and then play without ever paying again. It's called "Play once & play," and it's a freemium hater's dream: dozens of excellent games from big studios and independent developers, all free of in-app purchases. You pay anywhere from $0.99 for Almightree: The Last Dreamer or Epic Eric to to $19.99 for Dragon Quest VIII, and and everything in between including Minecraft and the truly-bizarre Goat Simulator.

Apple's Campus 2 is being built from the remains of a former HP campus, literally

Apple's enormous Campus 2 building site in Cupertino, CA, has been pretty much off limits since construction began (excepting hard-to-restrict aerial photography), but San Francisco public radio station KQED got a quick on-the-ground tour of the site which, well, it's very much a construction site right now. Lots of concrete and steel and whatnot, just arranged in the ring of the Apple Campus 2 design instead of more traditional right-angled structures.

Ten ways to pester and delight your friends on iMessage

Last week, Ally somewhat accidentally discovered that if you change an iMessage's group name on your computer, it changes the name for everyone on the thread. It not only led to some pretty hilarious griefing for our other co-workers, but got me thinking about other ridiculous tricks and trolls for making iMessage conversations a little more — shall we say — interesting. So here are ten ridiculous games, tricks, and other nonsense to keep you and your friends laughing throughout the day.

How to hide calendars in the Calendar app for iPhone and iPad

Some calendars are a necessary evil, even if we don't necessarily want them cluttering up our Calendar app. Perfect examples of these are shared work calendars that contain lots of pertinent information, but you may not need to see that information all day, every day. That's where hiding calendars comes in handy: You can tuck away calendars you don't need often and quickly toggle them back on when you do. Here's how!

iOS Help: Why can't I send or receive regular SMS text messages on my iPhone 6 or 6 Plus?

iOS Help: Why can't I send or receive regular SMS text messages on my iPhone 6 or 6 Plus?

Have an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus that is only letting you send iMessages but not regular green bubble SMS messages? If so, you aren't alone. This week our iOS help question comes from our iMore ask a question forum and deals with just that:

I have an iPhone 6 and can not send or receive regular SMS messages, I am only receiving and sending iMessages. Why isn't my regular SMS working?

This issues relates specifically to VoLTE, and seems to be affecting people that live in areas where it is being actively expanded. It's a common problem for not only iPhone owners, but Android, Windows, and BlackBerry users alike that have VoLTE capable devices. Luckily, there's a simple fix that seems to be working for most iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners!

This how-to is part of our iOS Help feature, where every week I try and help you fix the problems you're having with your iPhones and iPads. If you have a question or need help with something iOS related that you just can't figure out, I encourage you to drop a question in our iMore forums, no registration required!
