Apple Event Is Set To Introduce Some BlockBuster Products On September 12th’

It’s September! Yes. It is! And for Apple fans, this means another Apple Event is upon us. And this one promises to be a doozy!

On Tuesday, September 12th, Apple will reveal some major new products at the spanking brand new and very posh Steve Jobs Theatre. I cannot wait to see this gorgeous theatre. It sounds pretty amazing.

So it is only fitting that the product revelations match the aura and opulence of this new theatre, named after Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs. Read the rest of this entry

 We are a couple of weeks in since Apple held its “Hey Siri” event in the grand city of San Francisco. 

And, since then,  the stars have perfectly aligned in the creation of Apple’s newest iPhone – the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.  I am so happy that I waited until my contract played out because, if I owned the Phone 6 right now, I would  have been seriously – well – not happy!  Read the rest of this entry

Apple To Hold Major Event On September 9th: Apple TV And Siri Are The Stars

It will be a Year to the Day and Minute when Apple hosts it’s huge event on Wednesday, September 9th at 10:00 AM Pacific in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

And for the first time in forever, I will be away from my virtual desk and cannot live blog the event. How can this be?  Poor planning on my part – or multi- tasking which clearly went out of my control. 

However, you can watch the event on Apple.Com or stream it via your Apple TV. 

And, speaking of Apple TV, get ready to be dazzled by an all-new, Siri-enabled Apple TV, one which will take your entertainment preferences to the next level. Or next several levels.  And, if we believe the rumours, this new Apple TV will come equipped with a new remote and Siri capability which will make surfing for shows, music, gaming etc. incredibly easy and seamless. 

Also, set for the grand unveiling is the new IPhone, iPad Pro and Watch OS2.  Additionally, the availability of iOS 9 and OS X update El Capitan will be revealed. 

Apparently, the new phone will be named iPhone 6 S. Again with the “S”. What does this S stand for?  $$$$$$?   Or is it a tribute to Apple Co-Founder and CEO, the late Steve Jobs.  Please enlighten me Apple or somebody out in the blogosphere hit the comments below and have your say. I am confused! 
And if, like me, you cannot watch the event in real time – oh my goodness, I am dying inside just saying these words – you can stream it later on by clicking on Apple.Com or the Apple Event App on your Apple TV.  

Poor Apple TV 3 – the September 9th Event will quite possibly be one of the last things I view on it. I will be all over that new Apple TV unit and handing over its pre-decessor to family members. 

If you are watching live, feel free to jump in and add updates in the comments section below. 

IOS 8.0.2 Available For Download

Okay, let’s try this again, shall we?

A couple of days ago, Apple released iOS 8.0.1 to “fix” the bugs that crashed the party known as iOS 8.0.

Well, it appears that the iOS 8.0.1 was a regifter or something because chaos reigned the day when Apple consumers downloaded the software.

Owners of the newly released iPhone 6 and 6 Plus discovered that, after downloading iOS 8.0.1, their phone couldn’t connect to their Cellular Service and Touch ID was disabled. Good times.

So, this evening iOS 8.0.2 has been released to deal with these embarrassing issues. Here are the details:

“This release contains improvements and bug fixes, including:

Fixes an issue in iOS 8.0.1 that impacted cellular network connectivity and Touch ID on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Fixes a bug so HealthKit apps can now be made available on the App Store

Addresses an issue where 3rd party keyboards could become deselected when a user enters their passcode

Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library

Improves the reliability of the Reachability feature on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Fixes an issue that could cause unexpected cellular data usage when receiving SMS/MMS messages

Better support of Ask To Buy for Family Sharing for In-App Purchases

Fixes an issue where ringtones were sometimes not restored from iCloud backups

Fixes a bug that prevented uploading photos and videos from Safari”

Let us know how you do? And I will as well. If you never hear from me again, it is because I have thrown my iDevices out the window. Ha!
