macOS High Sierra: tips and tricks

Latest / Online / Technology

Apple’s latest desktop operating system is called macOS High Sierra, which sounds awfully similar to the last one. That’s because, like the transition from OS X Leopard to Snow Leopard, Apple has chosen to refine its established Mac OS rather than replace it wholesale, thereby avoiding the risk of introducing niggles and issues and that were previously absent. That of course still equates to additional new features for macOS which we’ll cover in this article, […]

How to get fit with Apple Watch fitness apps

Latest / Online / Technology

One of the attractions of the Apple Watch is its built-in activity tracking features. The proprietary Activity app enables you to track your movement, exercise and standing frequency over time, while integrated feedback helps you to improve on long-term activity goals.

Apple took a lot of stick and even issued an apology shortly after the release of iOS 8 to the public, who wasted no time voicing their displeasure at the number of issues the half-baked OS threw up on their devices. It wasn’t just older hardware that was affected – even new iPhone 6 owners had troubles initially.

The 20 best cases for iPhone 6 & 6 Plus

Latest / Online / Technology

Apple introduced two new ranges to its iPhone line-up for 2014 and both of them are bigger than ever. Personally I’m not a fan of the larger sizes, and even Apple once believed that the 4-inches of the iPhone 5 represented the perfect dimensions for a handset, but the company has pandered to the market nevertheless. Regardless, in the run-up to Christmas it all translates to lots of iPhone gift-giving and as usual this time […]
