    We kick off a new news week with 9to5Mac having a deeper look at what we might see in expected iPhone 6S later this year. Based on some new images of the logic board that seem to indicate an updated NFC chip and whilst it will contain a new flash memory, it may well still start out at 16GB. 9to5Mac had also posted images that suggest a faster LTE chip is being used that is expected to give a significant increase in downloads speeds.

    If reports out of Korea are correct that may well come in ...

    It is time to check your download limits as Apple has dropped some big updates today.

    First up and making all the news is iOS 8.4, which of course included the new Apple Music and Beats 1 via the new Music App. Another inclusion in the update is the fix for the iMessage bug that surfaced last month, so worth grabbing for that even if the Music overhaul is not your thing.

    At the same time Apple has dropped ...

    It is pretty hard to get away from Apple Music at the moment, ahead of the launch of the new service sometime early next week. The latest news is that, following the decisions to reverse on not paying anyone during the free trial period Apple has at last landed a number of high profile indie labels. Billboard is reporting that Apple has now reached agreement with Beggars Group and Merlin to appear ...

    If you ever doubted the power of Taylor Swift you may need to adjust your thinking. Within hours of Swift posting her Tumbler post on Apple not paying artists during the three month trial period for Apple Music, Apple reversed course. Apple will now pay artists, though the actual payment details are not known, during the time users are taking up the free trial period. The change was first announced on Twitter by Eddy Cue and then backed up when he spoke with Re/code. It isn’t the first time Swift has weighed in on the impact of streaming ...

    Products come and go but it is always a little sad when one ends its life as a product in the Apple Store. That is sadly the case for the original iPad Mini, which has been removed from the Apple Store. So if you were in the market for an iPad Mini best to hit up a third party seller or you might be lucky and find one at the refurb store for a little while yet. There ...

    We are going to be spending a bit of time today talking about the Apple Watch. In fact we will be talking about the current version and the latest rumours about what the next version might include.

    For now though lets stay with the current version. Apple has not really made any comment about how many Apple Watches it has sold, other than saying it is happy ...

    There has been a lot of love for the Apple Watch since it was released into the wild, however 9to5Mac report that there is a seeming growing issue with Apple Watch owners not being able to downgrade the Watch OS. Making the matter worse Apple is said to be instructing owners to send their Watch back for service and charging for an “out of warranty repair”.

    When we think of Foxconn we think of manufacturing in China. That may about to change with news that the iPhone maker is looking to set up a plant to manufacturer ...

    How's the screen? Any vertical lines? I'd think $75-$100 in full working order is pretty fair.

    newbie here. selling price of my old iMac advice please

    A 4.1 iMac was released in January 2006 and can only run up to Snow Leopard OS X.6. Think anything over $50 would be good value.

    Airport Extreme PPPoE auth and wireless

    I would have thought this was as simple as plugging the incoming line into the WAN connector, setting up the PPPoE and turning the Wireless on.

    Target disk mode, copy over all the files you don't need (music, photos, documents, downloaded files) onto the other Mac. Needless to say, back these

    Well, good luck with that. I know it takes ages, but you know it could be over and done with, all the time you look for a solution. I don't think there
