Contacts disappearing or not syncing with iCloud under iOS 7.1.2? Here's the fix!

Did you add a contact to your iPhone running iOS 7.1.2 only to find that it doesn't show up in your Contacts app? Or perhaps it isn't syncing to your other devices via iCloud like it's supposed to. I recently had a friend experience this issue and a few days later I did too. As it turns out, the problem isn't actually iCloud at all. Luckily, the fix is super simple!

In-app purchases and the App Store: What every parent needs to know

In-app purchases and the App Store: What every parent needs to know

In-app purchases (IAP) can seem like complicated, confusing things, especially if you're a parent new to the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and App Store, and trying to figure it all out for yourself and your kids. If you're already concerned about spending, if you're already stressed by technology, if you're already juggling as much as you can, then in-app purchases gone wild can sound downright scary. Sadly, that's largely because of stories, needlessly sensationalistic stories, portraying IAP as scary. Stories that, instead of empowering parents to take control, paint them as hapless victims whose families are completely beyond control. Luckily, Apple provides tools for any parent to effectively manage their children's App Store activities, including in-app purchases, and there are even more on the way soon.

A bigger iPod touch: Engineered for even more funness?

A bigger iPod touch: Engineered for even more funness?

In late June Apple rejiggered the iPod touch line, making a consistent feature set across the line, dropping the price and lowering the cost of additional storage capacity. It's probably enough to provoke some short-term sales increases of the iPod touch, but I'm more interested in what comes next. What I'd really like to see is a bigger iPod touch.

Kids projects: Make a vacation travel trailer with iMovie on your iPhone or iPad!

Summer and vacation go together like, well, two of the best things in the world. Parents have time off from work, kids have time off from school, the weather is nice, the sun is shining, and travel beckons. Whether it's a day at a local fun spot, a trip across country, or an adventure half-way around the world, memories will be made. Amazing memories, crazy memories, shared memories. No matter how great a vacation is, however, you can never be there forever, nor can you take everyone you love with you. What you can do is bring the vacation home for you and for them! With your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, not only can you take videos and pictures of those magic travel moments, but you can edit and share them right in iMovie, even right away if you want to. Best of all, for kids (of all ages!), iMovie's trailer templates make it incredibly quick and easy to put together something short, sweet, and fun!

Previously the Hue Tap was only available in Europe, which makes sense as Philips is a Dutch company. The switch has no batteries and is powered through kinetics simply by pushing the buttons.

How to fix a blown or distorted earpiece in your iPhone: The ultimate guide

If you can't hear the caller on the other end of the line when you hold your iPhone to your face, or they sound distorted all the time, it's possible that the earpiece is defective or blown out. Most users that have iPhones with this issue can verify it if speakerphone works just fine. If that sounds like what you're experiencing with your iPhone, an earpiece replacement may be in order. Depending on what model iPhone you have, the difficulty range can vary. One thing is for certain though, performing an iPhone repair on your own is a heck of a lot cheaper than purchasing a new iPhone.
