Everyone knows Aspyr Media for their numerous Mac ports of classic PC games like, for example, Bioware’s incredible Star Wars RPG, Knights Of The Old Republic. Now it looks like Aspyr could be bringing KOTOR to the iPad.
There’s not a lot to go by, but Aspyr recently sent off an email to customers in which they accidentally included this line:
The critically-acclaimed Star Wars RPG is now available on iPad.
With WWDC less than a month away, we’ve seen a ton of designers come out with their visions for whatÂ iOS 7 might look like, but the next iPhone has been ignored.
Concept designersÂ Uygar Kaya and Ran Avni have a new video for the iPhone 6 that gives it a slimmer profile, waterproof coating, wireless charging, a notification LED, and more. It’s one of the sleekest iPhone 6 concepts we’ve seen yet, but [Read More...]
We’ve shown you plenty of iTV/Apple TV concepts in the past. There are a lot of ideas to improve the TV experience out there, and Apple is working on a solution (if you put some level of faith in the rumor mill, that is).
How would you interact with an Apple TV that replaced your cable box? The above concept video suggests an interface that is controlled entirely with an iOS device. Gestures would be used to swipe through channels [Read More...]
There’s a lot of talk about Apple going back to plastic for the budget iPhone, and while we’ve already seen some very attractive ideas about what that could look like, concept designer Ran Avni has another notion: an iPhone 6 that keeps the stark classicism of the current monotone iPhone color schemes, but adopts a plastic back which borrows design elements from the iPad mini. It’s an interesting look, and very Apple-like, but only time will tell how close this [Read More...]
Science! A 14-year-old girl has discovered that a regular old iPad Smart Cover can “accidentally turn off” a person’s implantable deibrillator… a device that might be the only thing keeping them alive.
Hetr name is Gianna Chien, and having done a report on the issue for her class science fair, she’s now presenting her findings in front of 8,000 doctors at the Heart Rhythm Society.
Here’s the deal. If you have [Read More...]
The iPad mini is the best iPad Apple has ever released, except for one damn thing: the screen. Even if you love your iPad mini, everyone agrees that the inferiority of the screen compared to other tablets like the Nexus 7 — let alone the 9.7-inch iPad — is the only thing that is holding it back. The iPad mini needs a Retina display.
Sadly, hopes of getting a Retina iPad mini [Read More...]
Supposedly, these nanoSIM trays are for the iPhone 5S. They look exactly like nanoSIM trays for the iPhone 5, except for one thing: they are in gold and gray. This is notable because in the iPhone 5 the nanoSIM trays were silver and black, and the iPhone 5S is rumored to come in different colors.
Except… gold seems like a pretty gaudy color to release a new iPhone in, don’t you think? [Read More...]
I’ve been writing for Cult of Mac for almost three years now, and in that time I’ve covered some pretty farfetchedÂ Apple rumors. But the latest fromÂ ForbesÂ comes with a whole new level of crazy.
“Some Wall Street sources close to some Apple executives” say the Cupertino company could be searching for a replacement for Tim Cook, it claims, before suggesting Cook could turn Apple into another Hewlett-Packard or JC Penney [Read More...]
A Chinese paper is reporting that Apple and Foxconn may have had a staggering setback in the production of the iPhone, with up to eight million iPhones returned to Foxconn because they didn’t meet Apple’s standards.
According to China Business, between five and eight million iPhones — probably the iPhone 5, and not the upcoming iPhone 5S — were returned to Foxconn in mid-March due to production problems, like “a substandard [Read More...]
We’re pretty confident the iPhone 5S will look almost identical to the iPhone 5, but its insides are likely to be a little different. Recent rumors have claimed Apple could add a faster processor to the device, along with fingerprint technology and improved cameras. And one of those cameras may have been leaked.
The picture above shows what is believed to be a front-facing camera for the iPhone 5S.
As you can [Read More...]
