It seems, Apple Watch OS 2 brings with it some pretty impressive features.. The most impressive feature being games controls for the Apple TV! One such game reported to support the Apple Watch’s new feature is Bowling Central by Rolocule. Whats more, Rolocule have confirmed they will let you lucky Apple Watch owners (and all those who don’t own one) bag Bowling Central completely free of charge!

Bowling Central uses the built in AirPlay feature of the iPhone and iPad to stream the gameplay to your Apple TV. Of course, this is either going to mean constantly removing your watch and passing to your friends..? Unless they introduce multi user/watch gameplay!

Check out this gaming footage:

Rolocule are some what experts in the field of motion controlled gaming.. Not so long back they introduced their motion tennis, which uses Android phones to control the in game rackets!

It’s fair to say this will be the first of many now the ball is rolling…

You can download Bowling Central right now from the AppStore using the button below.

Patents are being passed onto Apple from a Virginia based biometric security startup company called Privaris. Privaris are known for there handheld and keyring attached biometric scanners. Rumour has it that Apple are look at introducing a buttonless (built into screen) Touch ID Sensor in 2017.

If the rumours are true and Apple do pair up with Privaris, its fair to assume that the uses for the Touch ID sensors will expand exponentially! Especially with the impending launch of home kit, there’s suggestions that Apple will implement a door unlock feature using just Touch ID.

Although it has been corroborated that Apple have actually purchased patents from Privaris, there’s nothing to say they will actually go on to use them. As Apple have a habit of sucking up patents which never go on to be in production. The flip side being when Apple acquired AuthenTec back in 2012, who Apple rebranded as Touch ID. An quickly implemented their technology across its mobile device range.

Of course, if they do actually  manage to implement the Touch ID sensor in the screen itself, it could spell the end of the home button on the iPhone.  Rumours have been rife since as far back as 2011 suggesting Apple would drop the home button.. The up and coming release of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus (which have just gone into production) have already but it to bed for another year.

However, that in itself comes with it’s own challenges, the most obvious being a bigger reliance on phone side buttons. Which is something other manufacturers seem to prefer. Only time will tell if Apple do in fact radically change the design and layout of the iPhone. Perhaps we will even see Touch ID in its MacBook range!? Who knows..



Electronics_factory_in_Shenzhen A reputable source has reported back to Bloomberg that Apple have just given the orders to Zhen Ding Technology and Flexium Interconnect to start production of the all new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus models. iPhone fans of the world rejoice, as production looks on track for an August release as per Ming-Chi Tou’s predictions.

Sources suggest that the new 4.7″ iPhone 6s will be 0.15 mm longer and 0.2 mm thicker then the current model thanks to 7000 series aluminium, and will sport a very interesting ‘Force Touch’ feature, introduced in the Apple Watch earlier this year. Which, if the rumours are to be believed will be able to tell the difference between the contact areas of the finger on the screen. Which opens up a whole new world of possibilities for the hand set and application developers.

Along with the internal changes suggested to be on their way, there’s also rumours that Apple will be offering a brand new colour option for the new iPhone range. The colour ‘rose gold’ has recently been seen in the all new Apple Watch edition launch. Not to everyones liking, but will certainly compliment the other available colours.

As the Force Touch is brand new technology, Apple bloggers are suggesting there’s a good chance that production delays will be experienced as they potentially iron out issues with the technology.

 



27-inch iMacApple have today announced a recall on a small number of 27-inch iMac’s with 3TB drives, purchased between December 2012 and September 2013. They have acknowledged a batch of 3TB hard drives used in a particular manufacturing cycle have been prone to failure. In light of this they have kicked off a replacement hard drive scheme. Apple will replace hard drives free of charge, should the iMac fall within the range of specific serial numbers.

If you think your iMac may be one of the affected ones, you can enter the serial number on this page on the Apple website.

Apple have confirmed they will continue to replace drives in affected models until December 19th 2015, or 3 years from the original purchase date of the iMac.

At this time there is nothing to suggest any other models or years of Apple products have been affected by similar drive failures.

…Just another reason to make sure you have a upto date backup, no matter how much you pay for your computer equipment, drives are prone to fail..
