Apple’s new MacBook Pro has helped shore up total sales of the company’s Macs, boosting the firm in the face of an overall PC slump which is still very much ongoing.

This is according to figures on PC shipments which have emerged from two major analyst firms, Gartner and IDC; and we’ll start with the latter.

It’s almost a year since the iPad Pro 9.7 launched, so it’s about time we got a new one. The latest rumors suggest we’re going to get not one, but three and they’ll land between April and June.

In a note obtained by Apple Insider, respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims Apple is building an upgraded 12.9-inch iPad Pro and a brand new 10 to 10.5-inch model with a narrow bezel, both of which will have an A10X chipset, which should make them more powerful than the iPhone 7.

The Apple Watch doesn't work with Android phones -- but your Samsung watch might now work with Apple. Today, Samsung has released a pair of apps on Apple's iOS App Store which allow the Samsung Gear S2, Gear S3, and Gear Fit 2 wearables to pair and work with Apple's iPhones.

Apple has announced, via Twitter, that it’s working with Consumer Reports to nail down what happened to its MacBook and MacBook Pro hardware. The announcement came from Phil Schiller, who reports the company is “Working with CR to understand their battery tests. Results do not match our extensive lab tests or field data.”

Cameras on smartphones have transformed the way we take and share images, and the camera on the iPhone 7 is one of the best around.

The trouble is, with a fixed focal length with a wide field of view, it's not suited to every subject we point it at.

You could reach for compact camera or DSLR – but given the connectivity and ease of use of your iPhone, and the fact that you're more likely to have it with you most of the time, getting better results from your phone is preferable to lugging a camera around.

It seems like just yesterday when Apple revealed a LG 5K monitor alongside the MacBook Pro, but finally after months of waiting and a  preemptive discount you can finally order high-res beauty.

The Cupertino company has officially added the LG 27-inch UltraFine 5K display to its virtual shelves just in time for its promised December – even if it is already half way into the month. As previously promised, every order put in through and before December 31 will be discounted to $974  rather than its normal $1,300  price.

Five years after burying the hatchet with Apple, Nokia’s back at it again. The one-time phone-making juggernaut announced this week that it’s ready to go back to court in a big way, filing multiple lawsuits aimed squarely at Cupertino.

The company celebrated the filings with a press release detailing the claims, which stem from 32 patents related to a wide range of related technologies, including software, video coding, chipsets, display, UI and antenna, among others — from the sound of it, just about everything apart from the big shiny Apple logo on the back of the iPhone.

After using Google’s Pixel XL smartphone for a few weeks, it has highlighted the iPhone’s glaringly lacking key features. Woah, woah there. iPhone supporters, hear me out. You’ll have plenty to defend your smartphone of choice down in the comments section.

Apple and third-party developers intended for that cool, new Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro to serve as an extension of MacOS and compatible software in order to essentially eliminate the need for a connected mouse. It focuses on keeping the user’s hands in the keyboard area, but naturally the new touch-based strip has provoked inventive developers to create other uses for the technology, such as playing Pac-Man directly on the Touch Bar itself.
