It’s happened. The one thing everybody has been waiting for and the one thing AT&T has been dreading, the iPhone 4 is now available on, in my opinion, the best network available, Verizon. There were a lot of naysayers out there that kept touting their babble about how the iPhone would never...

Apple Releases New Apple TV

Apple has officially released its 4th-generation Apple TV with the first deliveries expected to hit consumers on October 30th. The new model comes with two variations, a 32GB version for $149 and a 64GB version for $199. In addition to that, Apple is also offering free shipping for delivery between November 2nd and November 4th. More unusual is the fact that next-day shipping is $17 though the delivery windows is still October 30th to November 3rd so that extra $17 doesn’t really save you a whole lot of time it seems.

Like most new iterations of Apple products, the 4th-generation Apple TV doesn’t look too different from the 3rd-generation model. The same hockey puck shape is still around though this new Apple TV does come with a ton of new features. The biggest change to come is support for tvOS apps that are specifically designed for Apple TV. HBO, Showtime, Netflix, Hulu, the MLB, the NBA, and the NHL will all have tvOS apps ready on launch, provided you have a subscription to these services.

In addition to that, you will also be able to play games directly from the set-top box, though it is still unclear as to what these will look like. It isn’t really possible for developers to simply port iOS apps to Apple TV. They have to design them specifically for the Apple TV. This means that for apps such as games the developer will have to write completely new code, just as if they were writing something for Android or Windows 10. This means that it may take a while for some of your favorite apps and games to show up on your Apple TV.

The new Apple TV also comes with a new remote that has Siri integrated into it for voice commands. If you want, you can also buy a wrist-loop for your Apple TV remote for $13 if you want to use it as a game controller. However, you better not lose that remote or you’ll be forking over $79 for a new one. Only one Siri remote is capable of being programmed to an Apple TV, so you won’t be going out and buying multiple remotes in an attempt to play multiplayer games. You will, though, be able to use multiple iOS devices or MFi game controllers with the Apple TV, which will allow other people to join into whatever you are playing.

Apple’s latest Apple TV is currently on sale in 80 countries, though the Siri remote only supports voice commands for 12 of those countries. You can get yours now today from Apple’s online store.

iOS 9 Reportedly Causing Data Connectivity Issues

Have you been on the iOS community forums lately? If you have then you’ve probably noticed them being overwhelmed with posts from iPhone and iPad users complaining about a major bug in iOS 9’s cellular data. This bug, according to forum posts, leads to internet connectivity issues, mobile data connection problems, and internal configuration issues that include cellular data toggle being entirely grayed out. In addition to that, other users have also reported that some apps are unable to access the internet through their cellular data.

If you are having some or all of these problems and you are thinking about troubleshooting it yourself, then you need to ensure that your device is running the latest version of iOS, which is iOS 9.0.2, as this version brings a lot of bug fixes that includes one for the cellular data connectivity issue. If you want to check to see which iOS versions you have then go to General, then Settings, and then Software Update on your iOS device. On the other hand, you can update your device to the latest iOS through iTunes by connecting your iPhone or iPad to your computer and the selecting Download and Install Update whenever the prompt appears on the screen.

Resetting your network settings is one of the easiest ways to resolve a lot of the common internet and cellular data connectivity issues. To do this, open Settings, go to General, and select Reset. Once you hit Reset Network Settings, a message will ask you to enter your passcode for resetting the device. Enter the code and confirm to erase all custom network settings for that device. Once the settings are reset, the device will boot to the Home Screen. From here, restart the device by powering it off and the on again. Once you’re rebooted back to the Home Screen, enable the cellular or 3G/LTE data option to verify that your device can establish a connection.

If this doesn’t help then try updating your device with the latest update from your carrier. To do this, launch Settings, select General, and hit the About button. Wait for your device to connect to the update server. If the internet connection is working, then the update should clearly appear on your device’s screen along with the prompt, “Carrier Settings Update: New Settings Are Available. Would you like to update them now?” Tap on the update button to start the download and installation process. Wait until everything is finished and the network will reset to refresh your device with the updated settings.

If neither of these options work then your last option is to do a full factory reset. Make sure you backup your data and settings via iTunes before doing this, otherwise you’ll lose everything. To do a factory reset, launch iTunes on your computer and connect your device. Right click on the phone icon in iTunes and select Back Up from the menu. When prompted, create an encrypted backup as this stores all of your passwords and health data. Once everything is backed up reset your device to the factory defaults. To do this, go to Settings, then General, then Reset, then Reset All Content And Settings. This process could take anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes and will wipe any and all data from your device. Doing this will have your device looking brand new. Once you’ve booted back up, connect to iTunes and select Restore from Backup to restore the latest backup files. Go back into Settings and turn on cellular data or mobile data and check your connectivity. If they are, great, if not then you may have to take your device to an Apple Store and have them fix it.

Give these methods a shot if you are experiencing the same problems some very unhappy users on the iOS community forums are. Let us know in the comments which method worked for you and what kind of problems you were experiencing!

Apple Patents Idea That Could Change The Way We Use iPhones Forever

Ever since the very first iPhone launched Apple has made design changes with each new model. Some of the changes have been minor and others, like replacing the all-glass back with an all-aluminum design, have been more significant. However, the basic form factor has always stayed the same. But I bet you didn’t know that Apple had an idea that would dramatically change the way you used your iPhone. Apple was recently granted a patent for an iPhone design that has the screen curve all the way around the phone, and it looks pretty wild.

Apple's New Wrap-Around Screen Patent

The patent was published on September 29th and is a continuation of various patents that Apple has filed in the past. It really isn’t a new idea, but it is still very interesting and leads speculation that Apple is still toying with ideas like these. In the patent, Apple says that the design could change the way we use our iPhones. If you iPhone’s screen was extended, you wouldn’t be limited to interacting with the device’s screen only on the front of the phone.

Apple also noted that other aspects of the device that would be found along the side. These included a mute switch, power, and volume buttons. However, these would not be able to be used with apps since they are only programmed to perform a single task. The new design that Apple is proposing in the patent would change all of this. Here’s what Apple had to say about the whole thing.

“Unfortunately, this popular form factor, leaves the sides and rear surfaces of the device unused or at best configured with buttons and switches with fixed location and functionality. Since many of these buttons and switches have fixed functionality, they cannot always be incorporated into third party applications. Therefore, there exists a need for an improved form factor for portable electronic devices, which allows functionality to extend to more than one surface of the device.”

This doesn’t mean that we should expect to see something like this anytime soon. Apple patents different technologies and products all the time, and not necessarily because it has any plans of bringing these ideas to the table. Patents simply give users an idea of what to expect from Apple and what the company may be experimenting with. In addition to that, patents also keep Apple’s competition from utilizing certain technologies, giving Apple a one-up.

So what do you think? Would you be interested in an iPhone that has a screen that wraps all the way around your device? I, for one, think it’s a neat idea but not one that I think I would particularly enjoy using. But don’t let me spoil it for you; I’m still waiting on my Star Wars-esque holo-projector…..
