Apple's latest and greatest new Mac operating system, OS X 10.11 El Capitan, has been officially released today as a free upgrade to all Mac users. The update isn't showing yet to all users, but you can download it directly from the Mac App Store using this direct link. El Capitan will be able to run on all Macs capable of running OS X 10.10 Yosemite and focuses on improving everyday performance and user experience.
By now you probably learned everything there is to know about Apple's new flagship phones. But what you didn't know is that Apple has secretly waterproofed the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus just like it has done with the Apple Watch. As you can tell from this video below, not only are the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus water-resistant, but also fully waterproof and can last being submerged underwater for well over 30 minutes. And that only makes sense for Apple to protect their iPhone models against water damage from a business prospective since that will greatly help reduce the cost of AppleCare+ warranty claims from people accidentally ruining their devices from liquid damage, which is always a costly repair that often requires a full device replacement.
Now Apple never officially confirmed this nor has the company ever mentioned that the new iPhones are indeed water-resistant or waterproof. And although there have been many water tests clearly confirming that the new models can infact survive being put underwater, we still wouldn't recommend doing this yourself - unless you've got AppleCare+. We do know that if you use 3D Touch or if at any point the iPhone vibrates while it's under water, that could let water inside more easily and ultimately damage the phone.
Despite the marginal differences in thickness, height and width, the cases for the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will also fit the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and vice versa – according to Apple. So if you aren't planning on upgrading from your existing iPhone 6, you could still enjoy the new colorful case and aluminum dock options that Apple designed to match its new iPhone 6s lineup.
For the first time ever Apple has introduced Lightning docks machined out of solid aluminum, color matched to the newly announced iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models. These beautifully minimalist metal docks look identical to the white plastic-made Lightning dock made for the iPhone 6, but come at a more premium price of $49. Apple says the new aluminum Lightning iPhone Dock is compatible with all iPhone models that have a Lightning connector. It's available right now.Read More
Apple officially unveiled its new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus today. The new models look identical to their predecessor as expected, but now a fourth color option has been added to the usual mix of Space Gray, Silver and Gold – a pinkish Rose Gold. Made out of a stronger 700 series aluminum and tougher Ion-X glass, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus feature a faster Touch ID 2 fingerprint sensor, faster wireless antennas, an A9 processor that's up to 70% faster than before with up to 90% faster GPU performance, as well as a 3D Touch Retina display - Apple's iPhone version of Force Touch that can sense light and deep presses for quick access to additional gestures like previewing app and email content without having to open it.Read More
