The advent and evolution of Apple's digital hub

Like many people, the iPhone has replaced many consumer electronics in my home.

I no longer own a point-and-shoot camera, camcorder, voice recorder or dedicated music player. My iPhone is all of those items — plus more — in one, sleek, powerful and pocketable device.

In 2001, of course, the iPhone wasn't a thing yet, and many people had a whole shelf full of various dedicated devices. That year, Steve Jobs introduced the "Digital Hub" strategy, a cohesive plan to take all of those devices and make them more useful through the power of software.

Best web browsers for iPhone

If Safari just isn't your thing, here are some other great browsers to choose from.

The iPhone's built-in browser, Safari, is perfect for many people. But it's not perfect for everyone. If you want or need something different, like Google account sync, Flash support, or night reading, the App Store has you covered. If you already know which browser you want, great! If not, and you want to try some alternatives, here are our favorites!

Apple comments on iOS 8 unicode crash bug, fix in the works

A bug in how iOS 8 renders Unicode is causing Messages to crash or reboot when a specific string is received.

Update: An Apple spokesperson told iMore:

We are aware of an iMessage issue caused by a specific series of unicode characters and we will make a fix available in a software update.

The bug occurs when your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch (which runs a variant of iOS 8) receives a message containing the specific string of Unicode characters. Because the specific string can't be rendered, the app crashes or the system restarts.

Space Black Apple Watch (steel) unboxing

Space Black Apple Watch (steel) unboxing

The Space Black Apple Watch is stainless steel with diamond-like coating (DLC).

The result is something with an almost other-worldly beauty. Like dragon scales or the Batmobile, the stuff of legends. The link bracelet enjoys the same kind of cleverness as the band itself — push a button and not only is it easy to swap, it's easy to re-size.

It might not be gold, but it's arguably one of the best looks, and Watches, in Apple's lineup.

EE lights up 4G LTE roaming in China

EE lights up 4G LTE roaming in China

UK mobile operator EE has become the first British network to offer 4G LTE roaming coverage in mainland China.

The carrier's list of 4G roaming countries has not yet been updated to reflect the change, however we've been seeing solid LTE coverage through China Unicom on our EE SIMs in the Beijing area in recent days. Unicom operates FDD-LTE — the flavor of 4G used by most Western networks — on Band 3, which also happens to be EE's main LTE band at home. Its main rivals, China Mobile and China Telecom, only use TDD-LTE frequencies — these are incompatible with most European phones besides the iPhone 6. So naturally, the Unicom pair-up makes most sense for a Euro network like EE.

Having problems with a sluggish iPhone or iPad? Don't be afraid to reset!

Having problems with a sluggish iPhone or iPad? Don't be afraid to reset!

If you're struggling with an iPhone or iPad that isn't working right, restoring it as new can be just what the device ordered!

I've had a third-generation iPad — the first Retina Display-equipped model — since it was released. I've never upgraded, not even to the new iPad Air or iPad Air 2 because the iPad 3 has always done what I wanted it to do.

Or at least it used to. When I first updated to iOS 8, it killed my iPad. Made it a doorstop. The iPad became sluggish and unresponsive. It became almost impossible to type on it; launching apps became excruciatingly slow, and I'd occasionally get spontaneous restarts too. I was afraid it wasn't going to be useful anymore. I've recently resurrected it and done a clean install with iOS 8, and I'm quite happy with the results.
