The August Smart Lock is now available for purchase at the Apple Store for $249.99.
The smart lock, designed by Behar, leverages a Bluetooth low energy-enabled locking mechanism and a mobile application to send virtual keys to anyone you choose to have access to your home. As the key holder arrives at the door, August auto-unlocks allowing you to enter into the home. The lock also has a security feature called EverLock, which senses when the door is closed behind you and automatically locks the door.
With Apple preparing to show off an updated lineup of iPads on Thursday, designer Martin Hajek has asked the question “What if the new iPad’s were to borrow the design language from the iPhone6/6+?” on his site. As he has done in the past, Hajek has mocked up some remarkable 3D renderings of how the theoretical Apple devices could appear.
Take a look:
Ahead of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch this September, Apple's iPhone 5c became the top selling smartphone in Britain. In fact, this handset was so popular that it even outsold the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 5s. And that is an impressive result, I must admit.
Apple on Tuesday released a candidate golden master version of OS X Yosemite and a fourth public beta of OS X Yosemite to developers and the users registered in the public beta-testing program. Tuesday’s releases come two weeks after the releases of previous Yosemite betas that contained numerous bug fixes, design tweaks and other improvements.
Though Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company is the main supplier of the advanced 20-nanometer A8 chips used in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung reportedly continues to produce about 40% of high-end processors. As revealed by IHS, the manufacturing cost of the new SoC is $20, which is $3 more than the manufacturing cost of the A7 processor.
Immediately after the start of sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in several countries, first drop and crash tests began to appear on the Internet. The bad news is that both handsets are not doing well in these ultimate durability tests. While they somehow manage to remain intact when dropped on the side and back, they have no chances when dropped on the face. The smaller iPhone seems to demonstrate slightly better results, but in general, both handsets can’t be called the strongest devices on the market. Take a look at the video and you will understand what I mean.
Apple on Monday released the third public OS X Yosemite beta to those who has previously registered as a beta tester. Apart from that, the guys from Cupertino seeded OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 8, which contains a number of minor stability improvements and security updates. If to take into consideration the time of the releases, we may assume that these two OS X versions are identical. However, such an assumption hasn't yet been confirmed neither by developers, nor by Apple, so take it with a few pinches of salt.
Samsung has recently posted a new ad mocking the recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. In the short video, which is available below, Samsung claims the guys from Cupertino copied the large displays of South-Korean smartphones and their overall design. Aside from mocking Apple's handsets, the ad shows us the next-generation Galaxy Note. I must admit that both smartphones, the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy Note 4, look very similar in terms of size and shape.
According to the latest report from atechwebsite, the guys from Cupertino are currently working on a new version of MacBook Air. The next-generation laptop is expected to feature a 12-inch display and come in Space Gray, Gold, and Silver colors. These rumors haven't yet been confirmed by Apple representatives, however, earlier this year a report surfaced online that suggested that Apple was indeed working on a new laptop with larger screen.
Immediately after the release of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, the guys from Cupertino have redesigned its official website adding new look and making all the pages open faster on any device. Both desktop and mobile versions of the website got the new look, you can take a look yourself.
A new video showing fully-assembled and even working iPhone 6 appeared on the Internet on Sunday. The video comes from a reliable source, which is a French blog called Nowhereelse.fr, so I'm almost sure we may believe what we see.
Apple on Tuesday seeded OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 7 to developers for testing. The release comes two weeks after the release of the sixth Yosemite beta, which contained a wide number of important bug fixes, improvements and design tweaks.
According to what people familiar with the matter write, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch won't be released until 2015 as it is currently in the engineering verification testing (EVT) stage. Before entering the mass-production stage, it has to go through the production verification testing (PVT) and this requires time.
A new video that shows us a device very similar to the fully assembled iPhone 6 has recently surfaced on the Internet. This is not the first video depicting the upcoming 4.7-inch handset, however, it allows us to take a closer look at the smartphone that is expected to be officially unveiled on September 9th.
Last week, a rumor appeared on the Internet that suggested that the guys from Cupertino would release a redesigned Lightning cable with a reversible USB connector. The rumor was followed by a set of leaked images showing the new cable. It looked as if Apple indeed decided to equip its next-generation iPhone with a brand new accessory.
