The company from Cupertino will release an 8GB iPhone 5c tomorrow. The new handset is expected to become about $80 cheaper that the current 16GB version, so looks like Apple is seriously planning to occupy the entry-level smartphones market.
As you probably remember, I once wrote that Microsoft will release its Office for iOS in the first half of 2014. According to some trusted sources, the new Office for both iPhone and iPad is now ready and fully functional. Now it’s up to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to decide whether to release the new product or not.
According to the latest reports, Apple is currently testing iOS 8 and such new apps as Healthbook, Preview and TextEdit. The screenshots showing the appropriate app icons leaked online earlier today. As to the first app, it is believed to be a fitness tracker; Preview and TextEdit are the Mac’s applications with iCloud support and slightly limited functionality (if to compare with their desktop versions).
It seems that ahead of the iWatch launch, every designer thinks he’s obliged to create its own smartwatch concept. And while most of these concepts look ugly and impractical, there’re some that are really worth paying attention to. Gábor Balogh’s iWatch concept is one of such.
This designer created a device, which doesn’t actually resemble a smartwatch. It resembles a classic watch and that it the point.
It is Sunday today, so looks like it’s time to take a look at this week’s most popular posts. Are you ready? If so, let’s begin.

Three automotive industry giants, namely, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo, are expected to unveil vehicles with Apple’s new iOS in the Car system on board next week.

According to the latest reports from various sources, the company from Cupertino will soon release its updated Apple TV. However, the exact launch date is still unclear.

Apple has fixed an issue that turned off the geolocation functions of the force-closed apps in iOS 7.1, developers report. Latest betas prove that closing an application in the so to say “wrong way” doesn’t influence its location capabilities. And that is another improvement of the next-gen iOS 7.1 that is expected to be officially released in March.
As noted by several sources, Apple’s long-anticipated iWatch will be a peripheral device. What that means is that it will probably require iPhone connection in order to be fully functional. MobiHealthNews reporters claim that the wearable gadget “will not be a smartphone on your wrist”. Kind of depressing statement, don’t you think so?
