Since the release of Apple iOS 7 and the iPhone 5S, many have said that Apple created a phone with staying power that was not as noteworthy as previous models. Apple says a small group of devices represented that problem more than others.
Apple iOS 7 was supposed to revolutionize Apple's mobile operating system, but iPhone owners have discovered that one old problem - a failure to properly handle Daylight Savings Time (DST) - is still messing up their day.
App crashes are a common and expected occurrence for Apple iPhone users once they upgrade to iOS 7. Those app crashes happen more often on an iPhone 5S, according to Crittercism, an analytics company that provides crash reports and monitoring tools for app developers.
Apple's innovative streak really only rears its head in alternating cycles, so the "S" follow-up tends to be just an improvement on the last device before things really change the next year. The Apple iPhone 5S does nothing to buck that trend, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Virgin Mobile has announced that it will join the list of U.S. mobile network operators that carry the latest smartphones from Apple. The carrier will begin selling the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C next week.
I typically don't use a lock screen on my iPhone but decided it made sense to keep my phone protected like I do on my Android devices. Apple's new Touch ID in the iPhone 5S makes unlocking a phone faster and simpler than any previous solution.
In the least surprising news of the week, Apple has announced that it sold more than 9 million iPhones over the weekend, continuing a streak of breaking records for iPhones sold in an opening weekend of availability.
No, Touch ID is not the super-secure locked down solution that some might have hoped Apple's fingerprint sensor would offer to the iPhone 5. A group of hackers have already managed to bypass the security settings.
Apple has a reputation of urging customers not to use charging cables other than the officially sanctioned, and coincidentally more expensive, cables sold by Apple and authorized vendors. The new iOS 7 encourages similar behavior by blocking support for unlicensed Lightning cables.
Apple announced a pair of new iPhones yesterday, and the iPhone 5S was surprisingly not the most talked about of the two, thanks to the iPhone 5C injecting a bit of color into the conversation. Speaking of color, Apple has posted a video showcasing how its camera better handles camera and light.
