Rather than focusing on the incremental innovation needed to win back the attention of enterprise users and premium consumers, Google's vision for Android this year has again leapt in new directions which appear even less attainable. Android's scattered, imitative strategies du jour are resulting in a platform that looks a lot like Apple's--albeit the very unsuccessful Apple of the mid 90s.
Barely a year old, Apple Watch has already seen two major releases of watchOS--a remarkably rapid pace of platform development, even for Apple. Here's a look at what we can expect to hear about watchOS 3 at Apple's upcoming Worldwide Developer Conference.
This week on the AppleInsider podcast, we talk about Google's new Home speaker announced at I/O 2016 and what it could mean for Apple's Siri and HomeKit. Plus, we discuss Fitbit's purchase of Coin, Android Pay, Tim Cook's trip to India, and the latest "iPhone 7" scuttlebutt.
Rumors of iPhone 7 have so far revolved around purportedly leaked schematics and part images, which only allude to obvious potential hardware changes (a dual lens camera, an iPad Pro-like Smart Connector and replacing the legacy headphone jack with Lightning). However, many of Apple's biggest iPhone leaps have been externally invisible, driven by software advances unlocking the power of advanced silicon hardware inside, many of which debuted at WWDC.
Apple CEO Tim Cook this week responded to an email sent by a customer who explained how iPad and iPhone helped their grandfather recover from cancer surgery -- like an Apple commercial come to life.
Apple's fiscal Q2 earnings were the company's "worst ever" of the last decade in terms of year-over-year growth, but not in terms of actual commercial activity during the first three months of 2016. Take a closer look at Apple and three other firms: Samsung, Facebook and Amazon.
Apple's second-generation ultraportable 12-inch MacBook features some noteworthy internal improvements, including an extra hour of battery life and Intel's latest Skylake processors, that make it a worthwhile update. But all of the major concessions of the 2015 model remain, making it unlikely this refresh will change anyone's opinion on the divisive-yet-impressive notebook.
Introduced in 1987, Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) images have evolved from small icons to hugely popular animated clips that are adding humor to everyday digital conversations. AppleInsider has compiled a list of the best keyboards, creators and storage tools to get you GIF-ing.
Apple's professional-grade tablets now come in two distinct sizes: A 9.7-inch iPad Pro and a jumbo-sized 12.9-inch model. And while they both share a number of key features, including Apple Pencil support and the Smart Connector, both iPads are clearly geared toward different types of users. AppleInsider offers a handy guide to help you decide which model is right for you.
Apple on Thursday released a new version of GarageBand for the Mac, improving support for recent companion apps on iOS, and greatly increasing the number of samples available to musicians.
It's not surprising that Apple has incorporated the new features first introduced last fall for its 12.9 inch iPad Pro to its new 9.7 inch iPad Pro--essentially making it an enhanced iPad Air 2 packing an A9X brain, quad speakers and support for the new Apple Pencil and Smart Connector. What is surprising is that in just six months, Apple has enhanced the iPad Pro with an iPhone 6s-class camera with True Tone flash, and has invented a new "True Tone Display" for adapting the screen to ambient lighting--a substantial investment in iPad as a platform.
It's easy to dismiss Apple's new Night Shift mode -- introduced in iOS 9.3 -- as a gimmicky bolt-on, but it's actually a helpful feature rooted in years of sleep science.
With league tournaments winding down, it's time to start filling out your brackets for March Madness. AppleInsider shows you how to watch Cinderellas bust them no matter where you are -- even when you should probably be working.

Halfway through the last quarter, supply chain rumors of iPhone production cuts--purportedly "30 percent" of some unknown number--snowballed into an abominable snow-boogeyman of conjecture that claimed the end to iPhone growth was nigh and speculated about a downhill implosion of Apple's sales overall, an embarrassing lack of interest in Apple's newest iPhone 6s and a rapid evaporation of the world's most valuable company. They were wrong, here's why.
It's Super Bowl weekend, and for cord cutters that usually means a visit to a bar or friend's house -- but not this year, as NFL broadcast partner CBS has made the game available almost everywhere you look.
Apple on Friday publicly acknowledged an unusual "Error 53" message, triggered by updating an iPhone 6 to iOS 9 or later after having the phone's Touch ID sensor fixed by an unofficial technician. [Updated]
Apple in an update to the Android version of Apple Music on Wednesday added the ability to save downloaded songs to an SD card, greatly increasing the offline listening library capacities for phones running Google mobile operating system.
Apple's five year effort to radically enhance iOS app advertising with its own ad sales has now been scuttled. That opens the door for an even more radical rethinking of how to monetize apps and Internet services, one that is clearly differentiated from the incessant adware associated with Android, Windows and the open web.
