The Apple Watch will be launching in a scant few weeks time, but for all you are paying for it will it actually stand up to everyday damage the way Apple says it will? granted it’s made of sapphire glass but wait till you see how much of a beating it takes, thanks to the guys behind iPhonefixed who take the Watch’s glass panel and proceeds to rub it against a brick wall, key it, whack it with a hammer and ultimately use a power drill on it.
If the test is legit, this is definitely a huge plus point towards the Apple Watch in terms of durability. There are 3 Apple Watch versions – The Apple Watch Sports, Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition. Only the more expensive Apple Watch and Apple Watch Editions are using Sapphire glass, while its cheaper Apple Watch Sports uses strengthened Ion-X glass.

A new iOS 8.3 update is now available for supported iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. Apart from the usual bug fixes and performance improvements, the latest update also delivers a new emoji keyboard with over 300 new characters. If you are seeing some weird blocky alien emojis from your friends, it is because they are using the new emojis that are visible to those on iOS 8.3 or OS X 10.10.3.
Depending on what device you have, it is about 280MB-375MB to download and we recommend you to do so using WiFi. If you haven’t gotten any notifications yet, you can check under Settings > General > Software Update.
Anyone who has owned a smartphone knows that feeling of horror when you accidentally drop yours phone. Did the screen crack or scuff or maybe your case be dented beyond repair, it’s a terrible feeling.
Here we have two flagship smartphones square off in a test of mettle and endurance; where both devices fall to their “deaths” to see who can take a bigger beating, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge versus the Apple iPhone 6.
Now the iPhone 6 is priced from RM2,702 for 16GB, which is RM303 more since its launch in Malaysia last last year. Meanwhile the phablet sized iPhone 6 Plus now costs more than RM3,000 at RM3,126. This is an increase of RM377. The same 6% increase also applies on their iPads in Malaysia but it isn’t so much as it left unchanged during the price revision that happened a few weeks ago.

There have been rumours that Apple will be coming out with three new phones this year, and they do sound legit considering it’s about time for a refresher. Thanks to mobile parts reseller Future Supplier, we may have a sneak peek at the iPhone 6C’s back cover will be like.
WhatsApp has started rolling out it’s voice calling feature for Android users, but iOS users still have a bit of a wait for the feature to roll out onto their devices, but it won’t be a long one.
If you’re planning to buy an iPhone 6 in Malaysia, most likely you’ve been disappointed by the recent price increase. U Mobile, the 4th telco to offer the iPhone 6 on contract wants you to know that all is not doom and gloom.
With its ongoing registration of interest, U Mobile has revealed more details of its offering which are one of a kind in Malaysia. For starters, they would be offering the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at previous lower prices, while stocks last.
Apple’s App Store and iTunes are down in a bizarre service interruption that has caused practically all their uses to be unable to purchase anything using the services.
At the moment they appear to be fine as you can still surf though the listings on both stores and make the odd download (in some cases, not all) but you cannot actually purchase anything; and the issues have been happening since earlier today and have yet to be fixed. The Mac App store as well as their iBooks store are also still unavailable to make purchases as well, in one of the biggest service outs Apple has had this year.
Apple hasn’t said how far along it is in the recovery process, but you can check out which services are still functional here.
The new wearables are the Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Sport and the Apple Watch Edition, where the former comes with a shiny stainless steel surface and band while the Watch Sport will have an customised aluminium frame, with the ultra-chic Watch Edition sporting a solid 18-karat yellow or rose gold frame.
