Apple Pay is simple to set up and start using, but those who dig a little deeper can customize and take control of the mobile payments system, such as choosing the default card that appears when a transaction is initiated, or remotely removing cards from a missing iPhone via iCloud. Users with compatible Apple Pay devices can launch the iOS Settings application and choose "Passbook & Apple Pay." From here, users can view the cards they have scanned into Passbook, and...
Popular Mac image editor Pixelmator went mobile on Thursday with an eponymous iPad release that combines two hallmark features users of the desktop version have come to love: a deep powerful toolset in an easy to use interface. Pixelmator for iPad was first announced by co-creator Aidas Dailide during an onstage demo at Apple's iPad Air 2 unveiling last week. AppleInsider was able to go hands-on with the software ahead of release. The app itself features a very...

As part of what he calls a "road trip" to China, Apple CEO Tim Cook on Wednesday tweeted out a photo of himself sitting with a Foxconn worker putting the finishing touches on a new iPhone 6 model. As seen in the photo above, the Apple chief is apparently doing some legwork in China outside of his talks with the country's vice premier, and one of the first stops was Foxconn's iPhone factory in Zhengzhou, where he met with assembly line workers building the latest...

The case, which dates back to 2011, saw Honolulu, Hawaii-based GPNE Corp. assert patents related to 3G wireless technologies against Apple. GPNE sought $94 million in damages, but received nothing after a San Jose jury found Apple not in infringement, reports...
Apple on Wednesday initiated in-store sales of its new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 tablets, though the rollout appears to be limited to the UK and select U.S. locations, notably brick-and-mortar outlets on the East Coast. The Online Apple Store's in-store pickup stock tool is currently listing the new iPads as available for purchase from brick-and-mortar locations along the U.S. East Coast, but spot checks at areas farther west are still showing "Ships to Apple Store,"...
A teardown of the recently released iPad Air 2 on Wednesday revealed a slew of iterative changes made to Apple's flagship tablet model, including sized-down components and a smaller battery.
