Apple has always done a decent job of defying the ethos that says more RAM and higher numbered specs are better. For example, the iPad Air has just 1GB of RAM, while even basic Android slates pack at least 2GB. However, you would not notice a difference between the performance on the Air or on a high end Android tablet, such is the solid performance of Apple's product.
Apple and Google are locked in a number of mobile wars, such as platform and even smartphones, with Android typically besting Apple's iOS with its sheer availability. However, one area where Android has failed to defeat Apple is in terms of monetizing apps, and Cupertino's App Store has just recorded its best ever month just to make the point.

When Apple releases a new iPhone the launch windows is big, as in really big. In tech, no company does it quite like Apple and the no company can compare to the kinds of figures Cupertino achieves over a launch window, or indeed beyond
Look away now Android fans because Apple has released data showing the adoption levels of last year's iOS 7 and as you can imagine the numbers put Cupertino's great mobile OS rival to shame.
If you have been following the mobile tech news over recent weeks then you probably (like the rest of us) know plenty about the upcoming iPhone 6. You will know that Apple's next smartphone flagship will come with a 4.7-inch screen, you will know it is taller, thinner, and more rounded than the iPhone 5s, and you will know that it could well be accompanied by a larger iPhone phablet.
It's time to rub your chin and let out an interested hum as Apple's wearable plans seem to be getting just a little clearer. The company has been extremely tight lipped about its ambitions in this growing market, but Cupertino has now employed Patrick Pruniaux, TAG Heuer's sales and retail VP. In other words
Leaks for the upcoming iPhone 6 has been more like a raging torrent than a tricking stream as something new crops up daily. We know just about everything there is to know about Apple's iPhone 6, from its (admittedly) rumoured specs to its design. The guys and gals over at 9to5Mac have turned up another good look at the design language being employed on the new iPhone with a detailed look at the display cover.
There is a genuine worry among Apple stockholders that the company is losing ground to Google. Speaking to several sources in Apple over the last few months I have learned that Tim Cook's position as CEO of the brand is possibly under serious threat over the next year.
