This is what a more fashionable Apple Watch might look like

Apple Watch By Fashion Designers

We're at least a few months out from the release of the Apple Watch, but just about everyone has sounded off with their opinions of Apple's first wearable. Whether its watchmakers or the general public, there seems to have been a wide range of reactions. One of the groups that many of us were most interested to hear from was the fashion industry, if for no other reason than to know whether or not we'd look ridiculous wearing an Apple Watch. The response was divisive, but many designers were impressed with the smartwatch.

Chinese workers make $17 a day building the iPhone 6, but it’ll cost them $4,000 to buy one

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Sales

There’s no doubt about it, the iPhone 6 launch is the biggest handset launch of the year. Apple had sold well over 4 million iPhone 6 units during preorder availability, but that didn’t stop thousands of buyers from lining up in front of Apple retail stores in the various markets, days ahead of the actual launch. But as many reports have shown, not all of them are doing it to buy an actual iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for themselves.

iPhone 6 still susceptible to law enforcement spying, despite beefed up privacy and security features

iPhone 6 Security and Privacy

Apple may be focusing on ensuring customers that their personal data stored on iOS and OS X devices is safer and more private than ever, but that doesn’t mean law enforcement and spy agencies won’t be able to access iOS 8 devices anymore. Wired points us to a new blog post published by security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski, who says that regardless of the steps Apple has taken to further protect personal data and regardless of whether the company is willing to help such agencies, they’ll still be able to force their way into an iPhone 6 or any iOS device running Apple’s latest operating system.

Where did your iOS 8 Camera Roll go?

iOS 8 Photos App

Following Wednesday’s public release of iOS 8 and today’s launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the Apple Support Forums are already buzzing with disgruntled users who are venting their frustration with iOS 8 presumably removing some of their photos, a point driven home by the company’s inexplicable removal of the Camera Roll album in iOS 8.

Indeed, it looks like Apple has introduced a major customer pain point by not elaborating whether the missing Camera Roll has anything to do with iOS 8′s newly gained ability to access large photo libraries in iCloud within the Photos app.

So, where did your Camera Roll go and is there anything sensible to be done about it?... Read the rest of this post here

iPhone fans who sleep outside Apple Stores are ridiculous… and I think they’re great

Apple Store iPhone 6 Lines

Let's get this out of the way: There is simply no sane reason to spend days sleeping outside the Apple Store just so you can be among the first people to get the new iPhone. This is especially true because you have the opportunity to both preorder the new device online or to buy it at a number of other retail locations that won't be as crowded. Nonetheless, while I'm not an iPhone user and I would never sleep outside a store for any smartphone, I really admire iPhone fans' passion despite the fact that I also think they're ridiculous.

Photographer tests iPhone 6/Plus cameras, Focus Pixels, Exposure Control, OIS and more

iPhone 6 Plus (Camera, Austin Mann 001)

As Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus hit store shelves in the United States and a few major markets around the world, first hands-on videos are appearing online (and let’s not forget about torture tests, too).

Teaming up with The Verge, professional photographer Austin Mann put the handsets’ enhanced cameras through the paces on beautiful locations in Iceland.

He took a series of photographs and videos that do an excellent job showing off improvements such as the new Focus Pixels, manual Exposure Control, higher-resolution Panorama photography, Slo-Mo video enhancements and Optical Image Stabilization.

The results are quite impressive: the more accurate sensor, Apple’s enhanced signal image processor inside the A8 chip and iOS 8′s software improvements enable noticeably sharper images, despite the same eight-megapixel camera resolution.... Read the rest of this post here
