2014 was an amazing year for Apple and for technology in general. We got the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the iPad Air 2 and Retina 5K iMac, iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, extensibility and continuity, and much, much more. We got great apps and gear for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. We saw stories that gave us incredible hope, and stories that shook us to our cores. We saw a year of tremendous changes and challenges, triumphs and tragedies. Here's the best, the most important, and the most popular of them all.
