App Store Gifting Comes To iOS 6
When iOS 6 was launched, iDevice users saw the end of the ability to gift apps from the App Store.

iOS 6.0 Bug Downloads Same Audio Stream Multiple Times
Word has it that there is a system-wide bug found in Apple’s iOS 6.0.0 AV Foundation framework which was actually the culprit for triggering multiple downloads of streaming media, where among these include podcasts, over Wi-Fi and cellular networks, and the result of this would be massive data bills assuming one is not on an unlimited data plan. Public Radio Exchange Labs (PRX) laid claim to discovering this problem after […]


Native Google Maps for iOS 6 in alpha stages?
Most of you who follow tech news would know by now that Apple’s Maps offering on iOS 6 is far from the finished article, and when compared to the old Google Maps on older versions of iOS, you would feel as though you were ‘cheated’ in a sense, as Apple’s Maps app is relatively gimped in comparison. There have been users who clamored for Google to release a native iOS […]

Apple and SBB come to agreement over iOS 6 Clock app
Funny how Apple went all out to make sure that Samsung paid their dues in terms of infringing upon Apple’s design patents, and the Cupertino company was challenged by the Swiss national railway (SBB) for using their iconic clock design in iOS 6’s Clock application without asking for any permission prior. Sure, Apple might argue that they were “inspired” by the old school design, but I guess you just have […]

Survey finds that 74% of respondents have no problems with Apple's Maps app
There has been quite a bit of fuss lately over the quality of Apple’s Maps app. While it certainly was touted to be a powerful program at its unveiling, reports across the web has suggested that it leaves much to be desired.

This is according to six iOS developers who spoke with CNET, claiming that they had sent various […]

iOS 6 cellular data bug not limited to Verizon Wireless?
We talked about the presence of a cellular bug in iOS 6 which actually consumed precious cellular data even when one is connected to a Wi-Fi network, and while it seems that Verizon Wireless had already fixed that issue, there are users of the iPhone 5 on AT&T who also complain of the same thing happening to them, including others who have upgraded to iOS 6 while using older iPhone […]

iOS 6 reportedly drains the batteries of iPhone 4 and 4S
Only recently, Apple rolled out the iOS 6 update. The update brought a whole host of features to the iOS devices.

iOS 6 WiFi issues persist?
Just a week ago, we reported that the Wi-Fi bug in iOS 6 has been fixed, but it seems as though that was a premature conclusion as some iDevice owners who have upgraded to iOS 6 still reported that the Wi-Fi issues continue to plague their device. In a 91-page thread on Apple’s Support Communities webpage (and growing, I would suppose), this just speaks volumes – literally and figuratively, on […]
