Now that we have Apple Pay and the Apple Watch it looks like Apple may be moving away from their ’90s “i” branding to a more modern and corporate branded “Apple” naming scheme. On the Mac there is an easy keyboard shortcut to type that Apple symbol, but how can you do it on iOS? Adam Christianson has the answer.
Apple provided an enormous amount of information and videos for us on September 9. Here, on one page, are all the important URLs/links related to that event.
Apple released iTunes 11.4 for the Mac and Windows on Tuesday with support for next week's release of iOS 8 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The update will let users sync movies, music, and other content with devices running iOS 8.
We know iOS 8 is coming, and we're pretty sure there's a new iPhone in the near future as well. Kelly explains how to technologically prepare devices for iOS 8 (emotionally preparing is a totally different process).
Star Walk 2 is the next generation of the venerable sky charting program by Vito Technology that was launched in 2008. This iOS app has been well received throughout the years, but the new release suffers from too many user interface and usability errors, and its does not fare well compared to the competition at the same price.
If you have trouble charging your devices or your headphones don't work quite right, it might be an issue with junk accumulating in the 30-pin/Lightning port or the headphone jack. Kelly has some tips on how to de-gunk those ports.
Apple rolled out an update to its Apple Store app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch this week that added the ability to start shopping on one device, and continue on another. The version 3.0 update also revamped the app interface for the iPhone and iPod touch so it more closely matches the iPad version.
If you send and receive a lot of photos in Messages, you might find it taking up a lot of space on your device. Kelly explains how to save the images you want to keep and how to delete the ones you don't.
Why do people stand in line every year for a new iPhone? Why is iPhone technology changing so fast? Conversely, why are iPad sales more or less ho-hum? Why isn't iPad technology exploding? John Martellaro reflects on the situation.
Apple is reportedly working on a 12.9-inch version of the iPad with plans to release the device in 2015. The tablet would be even bigger than the 9.7-inch iPad Air and would dwarf the 7.9-inch iPad mini.

It's a safe bet that Apple has been experimenting with several screen sizes for possible future iPad models. If the company does release a 12.9-inch model, it won't be because analysts demand it, but instead because the company is sure it will sell well.
