Our grades for the likelihood of various whispers and scuttlebutt

So now that it is finally confirmed that Apple has chosen September 9 for its big event, and a different venue than usual to accommodate more press and that requires some street closures for a likely outdoor component (which hints strongly that something unexpected is up), the rumors are again flying about what we should expect to see at the event. Let's have a look at what's being whispered about, and a (speculative) look at the odds any of it will happen.

08/25, 10:49pm

Ruling benefits Lenovo, Android generally, though patent no longer infringed

One of the lynchpins of Apple's original court challenges against Android was set aside in a European court on Tuesday, as a top patent court in German ruled that the European version of Apple's "swipe-to-unlock" feature for the iPhone "was already suggested by the state of the art" at the time, and should not have been granted patent-level status.

08/24, 6:27pm

Requires vents to release small amount of water vapor, runs for a week

Users of smartphones are always complaining -- despite huge advancements in battery technology over the past few years -- about the need to recharge devices frequently. A new form factor from British firm Intelligent Energy could potentially change this to only having to recharge a phone on a weekly, rather than daily, basis. The company has placed a hydrogen fuel-cell battery into an iPhone 6 as a proof-of-concept, with only tiny changes to the casing for the device.

In-ear headphones that offer great sound but come with a high price tag

If you're like us, in your day-to-day lives you probably prefer listening to music with in-ear headphones -- and chances are you're used to trading off certain things, like great bass and overall clarity, for portability and comfort.

The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has advanced the process to invalidate one of Apple's original iPhone design patents. The decision, which moves the process along a bit farther was made on August 5, twice for obviousness, once for obviousness in connection with a different patent application, and once for lack of novelty.

LED smartbulb features bright, clean light at a steep cost

LED bulbs are in vogue these days, cited as being cheap to run, long lasting, bright, and less annoying than compact fluorescent lights. We couldn't imagine life without them at this point. Smart LEDs are starting to become more popular, and while we weren't sold at first, we're coming around to them.

Hands On: Scosche GoBAT 6000 Powerbank

08/17, 8:11am

Plug-in powerbank saves you the worry of dead batteries without taking up much space

We've all been there -- that moment when you realize that your phone or tablet is dying, and you're barely through your day. And of course, this only ever seems to happen when being near an outlet just isn't an option. For most people, we go into critical battery saving mode, dimming the screen, turning off the vibrate function -- we've all got our own battery conservation strategies. Scosche has got our backs, though, with their portable powerbank, the GoBAT 6000.

Apple Pay update: Lloyd's Bank says Apple Pay 'coming soon'

08/14, 4:20pm

Current UK spending limits will still be in effect, expected to be revised in fall

Lloyds bank on Friday became the latest of the dwindling holdouts to announce support for Apple Pay, telling customers in an email that the functionality will be enabled "very soon" and reminding them of what devices can be used with the service. This leaves only Bank of Scotland, Halifax, and Barclays as not having a clear window when support for Apple Pay will be offered. Barclays, which had initially declined to support Apple Pay, was forced to reverse course due to customer backlash.

Fearless predictions: Apple's September event

08/14, 11:58am

Wherein, the MacNN staff gazes into the crystal ball

I've been battered with requests on Facebook and Twitter to talk about what we see for the rumored (but likely) September Apple media event. My response sits on a clipping on my desktop, and says in essence, that there is little value in speculating, as Apple will do what Apple will do, but the requests continue. Fine. I give up! I've corralled the staff, and forced them to write about what they see for the next event, and to criticize the rumor mill at large. Read on for our thoughts.

Hands On: Stilo Active Stylus

08/13, 12:17pm

Active stylus boasts thin tip without drawbacks of Bluetooth pairing

We've checked out a couple of styluses in our day, and for the most part, they're all pretty similar. Most consist of a thick squishy tip, a conductive body, and are there for you through thick and thin, but are only slightly better than using your finger. Of course, there's some newcomers out there that have done their part, creating art-centric Bluetooth styluses that are capable of pressure sensitivity and boast thin tips at the cost of occasionally cutting out. But what about a stylus that takes the best of both worlds? Stilo figured out a way to make that happen with their thin-tipped, non-Bluetooth active stylus.

Hands On: EcoPebble Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

08/12, 9:15am

Tiny speaker promises to brave whatever you throw at it

Portable speakers are great, but there's still usually some sort of caveat. They're portable with an asterisk -- generally intended for indoor use, or outdoor use in "optimal conditions." If you lead an outdoorsy lifestyle, however, rarely will you be in "optimal conditions." That's why EcoxGear came up with the EcoPebble, a durable little speaker that can go wherever you do.

AT&T enables Wi-Fi calling for some iOS 9 beta users

Carrier turns on Wi-Fi calling for limited number of iPhone users

AT&T is allegedly allowing some of its subscribers to take advantage of Wi-Fi calling, starting with those using iPhones running on last week's iOS 9 beta release. The carrier is said to have enabled the function for a limited number of iOS 9 users, letting them make and receive calls through their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus via Wi-Fi instead of the cellular network, but is still stopping short of formally announcing the service's availability.

Rumormonger Evan Blass tweeted that users should expect little more than a spec bump from the new models, apart from the addition of Force Touch on one more more of the models. There may also be a "rose gold" color addition.

Living With: Mophie Powerstation External Battery

08/10, 1:26pm

Perfect extra charge for your iPhone

Android users have called us iPhone owners "wallhuggers" because we keep needing to recharge our phone batteries. We do. We are. I'm not convinced Android users are actually any different, but it doesn't matter: even if they had infinite battery life, I'm not going to swap to Android because it would mean swapping to Android. Yet power is a big problem for me, and there has never been a day that my iPhone didn't need recharging. Unfortunately, there have been many, many days when I couldn't recharge it, so at best I was ekeing out time by using it less, and at worst I was carrying a shiny black brick with me. Until I bought a Mophie Powerstation external battery.

Hands On: Scosche FreeKEY Bluetooth Keyboard

Flexible silicone keyboard is lightweight, portable, and damage resistant

There's no denying that we love our tablets and smartphones, but we find that extended typing on them isn't nearly as comfortable as one would hope, especially in the case of smaller tablets. Our iPad Mini is too big to thumb-text, but too small to home-row, touch-type. Having a full-sized keyboard on hand to make extended typing easier is nice. Having a full-sized keyboard that is light, portable, and damage-resistant? Even better. That's where Scosche's FreeKEY roll-up Bluetooth keyboard comes in, offering both convenience and portability.

Hands On: Audiofly AF33 In-Ear Headphones

08/07, 8:57am

Modestly priced earbuds deliver big sound in small, stylish package

Earbuds. We're big fans of those humble, tiny headphones that we pop in just about every time that we leave the house that seem to reproduce when left unattended in our junk drawer. And for the most part, we tend to think headphones are like pizza -- when they're good, they're great. When they're not good? Well, it's better than not having headphones. But maybe it's time we upgraded from our $8 beater headphones and tried something a bit better, so we took a look at Audiofly's AF33 in-ear headphones.

Bluetooth enabled LED bulbs create fantastic scenes in your home

If you're like most people, you don't think too much about the light bulbs that hang out in the sockets in your house. Maybe you've got a preference, but most of us are happy as long as they work and illuminate the area adequately. Still, innovation is generally a good thing, which is why we were so excited to try out the Satechi Spectrum iQ Bulb, an LED bulb that utilizes Bluetooth to give users nearly-endless lighting options.

Steals share from Android in US, loses ground to Chinese makers in China

Apple's iOS platform continued a streak of strong growth in both the US and China, according to new ComScore and Canalys report issued yesterday, taking share away from Android. However, while still seeing extraordinary growth in China, surges in shipments from native Chinese manufacturers Xiaomi and Huawei meant that Apple was knocked to third place in Chinese market share, having briefly captured the top spot.

Hands On: Griffin Premium Braided Lightning Cable

08/04, 7:22am

Durable Lightning Cable stands up to abuse with multiple reinforcements

We're the first to admit that we are not easy on cables. It's not unheard of them to end up in the bottom of our laptop bag, bunched up and crushed together. We also might have a slight problem with being able to put our iPhones and iPads down long enough for them to charge fully, which often leads to the ends becoming crimped, which eventually leads to wire breakage, which eventually leads to the death of a poor, defenseless cable. Sound familiar? That's why Griffin decided to make their Premium Braided Lightning Cable, to give us serial cable-breakers something that can live up to the abuse.

Apple reportedly working on voicemail transcription service

08/03, 12:57pm

Supposed iCloud Voicemail service uses Siri to answer calls

Siri may one day answer phone calls and transcribe voicemail messages for its users, a report claims, a feature that could end up being more important than the introduction of Visual Voicemail. Employees at Apple are allegedly testing a service which will listen to voicemail messages, transcribe them into text-based versions, and then have them delivered to the user's iPhone, allowing for the content of the message to be quickly understood by the user, without needing to listen to the voicemail at all.

Leaks of 'iPhone 6s' parts show few hardware changes

08/02, 4:46pm

Images of parts increase as next iPhone ramps up production for fall

As one might expect once the unit entered larger-scale production in anticipation of a September release, leaked images from factory workers in China of the next release of iPhones are increasing in frequency, and are increasingly likely to be legitimate. The images thus far have revealed little in the way of changes to the design or casing of the next iPhones, likely to be called the "iPhone 6s" and "iPhone 6s Plus," despite rumors of significant new features.

Pointers: the iOS troubleshooting and device maintenance guide

07/31, 7:05pm

A literally complete handbook on keeping your iOS devices running smoothly

Today's Pointers column was inspired by a real-life incident in which an acquaintance asked me for help in picking out a new iPad. Knowing that they had a fourth-generation iPad -- not far removed from the iPad Air 2 that I have -- I asked why. "Doesn't work anymore," they grumbled resentfully. "Lots of crashes, some apps don't even launch now." I asked if it had ever been turned off. "Every night," they said. I said, "no, not put to sleep -- turned off." "You can do that?!" they exclaimed.

Strategy Analytics: Apple now second-biggest mobile phone maker

07/31, 2:54pm

Chinese maker Huawei overtakes Microsoft as Lumia sales drop by 50 percent

A new study by Strategy Analytics has confirmed Apple CEO Tim Cook's claim that iPhone sales were up a staggering 35 percent year-over-year, making Apple the smartphone maker with the second-highest mobile phone shipments overall, including "feature phones." The remaining-but-shrinking market for low-end smartphones and feature phones is what keeps Samsung in first, but Apple's marketshare rose to 10.9 percent share, compared to last year's 8.2 percent.

Hands On: Satechi Bluetooth Media Button

07/30, 4:30pm

Simple near-universal bluetooth remote allows for easy music and media control

Let's paint a scenario for you: you're driving along, letting your iPhone serenade you with favorites from your music collection, when suddenly it plays that one song that you hate more than anything. You look away from the road to grab your phone and switch the song to something else, and in that brief moment, you've drifted into the other lane. Sound familiar? If this sounds like something that you can relate to, we'd like to introduce you to the Satechi Media Button, a Bluetooth enabled media remote designed to help you avoid moments just like that.
