    iOS 8 on the iPad 2
    The iPad that just won’t die:



    Back in 2011, Steve Jobs took to the stage to announce the iPad 2. Few would have imagined that over 3 and a half years later, it would still be relevant. Almost no one would have guessed it would have had a shelf life of 3 years.

    Arguably, the iPad 2 was the first tablet to really define the market expectations. When it was introduced, it didn’t really have one ground breaking feature specifically. Sure it was thinner, lighter, faster and had two Cameras. It was the combination of these features that combined to make a great iPad experience particularly compared to the iPad 1.

    As time has gone past, the 2 has received many an update. iOS 5, iOS 6. Some people felt that support would stop ...

    iPhone Line 6 Doncaster, day before by Shaun Garrity, on Flickr

    I am just going to pretend you are not all in lines for iPhones or madly waiting for the courier, and do a normal daily news. It seems from early reports lines are moving well, stocks are dwindling fast and couriers are being run off their feet.

    If you thought you were getting some time off after updating to iOS 8 yesterday you are wrong. Apple has released the latest Mavericks 10.9.5 update and an updated version of Safari 7.1. So if you ...

    There is really only one place to start the news today, iOS 8 has been released and is ready for download. One thing that will trip many of us up, it did me on my iPad Air, is you need quite a bit of storage to do the upgrade. In my case on the Air I need 6.9GB of free storage. So the rest of my morning will be trying to trim down my iPad.

    Once again a warning not to upgrade to iCloud Drive when asked during ...

    We bought you part one of the Charlie Rose interview with Tim Cook on Monday. Today we bring you part two, the final part of the interview. In it Cook discusses privacy, U2 and his thoughts on what comes after the Internet.



    iOS 8 is due for release sometime later today. As Macworld in the US note though, we all need to be very careful to not upgrade to iCloud Drive just yet. iCloud drive is designed to work ...

    With iPhone 6 pre-orders out of the way, what is an Apple fanboy or fangirl to do this week?

    My suggestion is set a hour aside and watch the first half of the Tim Cook interview with Charlie Rose. You can watch it below, or if the embed is giving you some trouble over here at Hulu.com. It will flash a message that the video is only viewable in America but, it will in fact just start playing as it is not geo blocked.

    Like me, some of you may have received an e-mail overnight from Apple regarding your iCloud storage. Apple has now begun the process of rolling out its new iCloud storage bands. In my ...

    The day after a big Apple Keynote is always a little bit a downer. We have over a week to wait for pre-orders of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and that Apple Watch is sometime away still.

    Not to fear though, there is still some news bouncing around out there on the Internet.

    Apple did actually release a new product in Australia yesterday. As had been hinted at Apple released AppleCare + ...

    As you might expect the main news of the day is, of course, the two new iPhones, Apple Watch and Apple Pay revealed at the Keynote overnight. You can grab the low down on what was released, and when you can get your hands on them over in the MacTalk news item here.

    Sadly those new products saw the demise of another. When the stores came back online it was quickly noticed that the iPod Classic was ...

    Apple took to the stage this morning to unveil two much anticipated, new iPhone models, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, a new payment system called Apple Pay and the Apple Watch range.

    iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

    Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller introduced the new, thinner iPhone lineup. The phones feature Retina HD displays, curved bezels, a new A8 chip and stainless steel Apple logos.

    The last two iPhone models have featured a 4in display but, as expected, the iPhone 6 model has a larger 1334 x 750, 4.7in display, with a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch, while the iPhone 6 Plus comes with a 1920 x 1080, 5.5in display with a pixel density of 401ppi.

    According to Schiller, the iPhone 6 has over one million pixels packed into its display, while the iPhone ...

    Kerr, while you're synching and stuck on "Step 6", on your iPhone go to settings, general, iTunes WiFi sync (even if you're synching via cable).

    iPhone6 Synching Issues

    The thinking in my case was that the apps not being same version was causing a conflict between the device and iTunes. So it might be the mayday pass

    No data is being transferred, as far as the iPhone is concerned, the restore is complete. The iPhone is not locked, as you can see below it can be used.
