And with the three major telcos in Singapore releasing their mobile service pricings with the smartphones, you&#39;ll need to consider hard which works best for you.</p> <p><strong>M1</strong></p> <p>M1 was the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/m1-releases-iphone-6-and-iphone-6-plus-pricing-details/news">first to announce its price plans</a>, and we think out of the three telcos, it is the one that offers the cheapest mobile deals across all of its plans. We would go with the&nbsp;i-Lite+ price plan,&nbsp;for which you&rsquo;ll have to pay S$41 a month on a two-year contract. This comes with 200 minutes of voice/video calls, 1000 SMS/MMS, 3GB of data, and permanently waived 4G VAS, amongst other benefits.</p> <p>The 16GB iPhone 6 will cost you S$525 on the plan, and if&nbsp;you&rsquo;re after the iPhone 6 Plus, the 16GB version will cost you S$665 on it.

Having spent an hour or two offering a razor-sharp presentation of new Apple kit, Apple executives turn into someone&rsquo;s uncle at a wedding, geeking out over a band or act designed to appeal to people like them, but that nonplusses a significant chunk of Apple&rsquo;s audience (not least anyone under 30).</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/craig-grannell" title="View user profile.">Craig Grannell</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>It might come across as a smidgeon ungrateful and curmudgeonly to complain about getting some music entirely for free, but Apple&rsquo;s actions strike me as being as tone deaf as a fan of U2&rsquo;s latest album, and for all kinds of reasons.</p> <p>First and perhaps most importantly, <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/there-are-lessons-be-learned-celeb-iphone-pic-thefts-they-re-not-what-you-might-have-heard/fea">Apple recently had a bit of a problem with hacking</a>. This was very much in the news, given that a significant number of famous women suddenly found very personal photographs spreading around the internet. So what does Apple do? It adds an album to everyone&rsquo;s iTunes account, without telling them. Unsurprisingly, people wondered why they suddenly had a new U2 album when they&rsquo;d not ordered one and leapt to the entirely reasonable conclusion that their account had been hacked.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1000" height="750" title="The social media reaction was swift" alt="Apple’s free U2 album is an exercise in tone-deaf music spam" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/u2-hack.jpg?1410826821" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Secondly, it&rsquo;s irritating to see a company such as Apple and a band such as U2 further devaluing media. Apple&rsquo;s race-to-the-bottom pricing in apps <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/pay-music-films-and-games-or-you-ll-be-left-garbage/feature">has been particularly damaging to indie developers</a>, and we&rsquo;re seeing similar issues when it comes to music and film; mega rock stars flinging their album out for free is a punch in the face to less successful artists struggling to make ends meet, but who will nonetheless encounter expectations of &#39;free&#39; from consumers.</p> <p>The third issue, though, is how un-Apple this all feels. On the iPhone and iPad there are admittedly apps you can&rsquo;t get rid of, but they are mostly defaults pretty much every device has. I&rsquo;d happily hide the likes of Voice Memos if I could, but Apple in its infinite wisdom does not provide such an option.</p> <p>What Apple hasn&rsquo;t done until now is load your device with any additional garbage. Where competitors and carriers sometimes helpfully provided game demos and brand apps that cannot be deleted, any iPad and iPhone you bought was clean. Now, every iTunes account has the stain of U2. It&rsquo;s music spam that&rsquo;s unwelcome and injected into your account without consent.</p> <p>Fortunately, <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/how-get-u2-s-songs-innocence-your-iphone-ipad-mac-and-pc/news">it is possible to at least hide the album</a>, meaning it manages by a whisker to avoid becoming the Stocks app of your iTunes library, but it sets a worrying precedent for Apple. What will we be in for in a year&rsquo;s time? Will the Rolling Stones shamble on to the stage, only for you later to be forced into listening to their new single whenever you attempt to talk to Siri? Will Tim Cook introduce Chris Martin, only for your iPhone to delete your entire music catalogue and replace it with infinite Coldplay? Or will the iPhone 7 Home screen be overhauled entirely, replaced by a grinning Bono face that agrees to read your email, but only when you say you love U2 and attempt to sing the chorus of &#39;Pride (In The Name Of Love)&#39;?</p> <p>Please, Apple, stop this madness before it&rsquo;s too late. Even an ego as big as Bono&rsquo;s won&rsquo;t be able to cope with half a billion iOS users badly singing the chorus to one of his 1980s hits.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1000" height="750" alt="Apple’s free U2 album is an exercise in tone-deaf music spam" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/u2-free.jpg?1410826821" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-s-free-u2-album-exercise-tone-deaf-music-spam/feature" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-s-free-u2-album-exercise-tone-deaf-music-spam/feature#comments Apple iPhone 6 iTunes Opinion Smartphones Mon, 15 Sep 2014 11:32:51 +0000 Elissa Loi 1447731 at http://www.stuff.tv This iPhone 6 case will never have any scratches, ever http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/iphone-6-case-will-never-have-any-scratches-ever/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Why?

Skepticism abounded regarding the newcomer&rsquo;s chances, not least because it decided to think different and initially snub famous industry giant Windows, in favour of a partnership with beatnik rival Macintosh.</p> <p>Although something of an outsider, iPod&rsquo;s approachability started to win over many fans, thereby beginning a long association with usability, class and a certain amount of cool. A surprise u-turn regarding Windows then thrust iPod further into the limelight and catapulted it into the mainstream. Cries of iPod &lsquo;selling out&rsquo; weren&rsquo;t enough to curb a rapid ascent to global superstardom.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/how-get-u2-s-songs-innocence-your-iphone-ipad-mac-and-pc/news">How to remove U2&#39;s Songs Of Innocence from your iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>iPod&rsquo;s middle years proved to be a combination of extreme success, dominating an entire industry, and the kind of excess that vividly showcased burgeoning issues with identity. A tendency towards frequent image changes became clear, including a brief dalliance with retro-style glowing buttons in 2003, and a curious obsession with U2. The latter would eventually see iPod paint itself red and black, and then allow Bono and other members of the band to literally engrave their signatures into iPod&rsquo;s skin. It was a low point in iPod&rsquo;s life, but fortunately rumours of affairs with Linux were never proven, despite claims of photographic evidence from unscrupulous tech journalists.</p> <p>A much-needed spell in rehab saw iPod emerge in a smarter, fitter form. By 2005, iPod&rsquo;s frame was thinner, but its capacity to provide music to anyone who wanted it continued unabated, and the now-established player also began making inroads into the video industry. However, there was a sense over the next few years that iPod was starting to be outshone by its own children. As happens with many ageing superstars, iPod cleverly changed its name - to iPod Classic - and settled in to a long semi-retirement, appealing to ageing fans who&rsquo;d been along for the entire ride, and utterly eschewing what iPod referred to as &ldquo;those new-fangled apps and games kids are all snorting these days&rdquo;.</p> <p>For the next few years, iPod Classic became little more than a background player, observing from afar an industry it had defined. Rumours of ill-health for years resulted in predictions iPod Classic would soon be gone, but it nonetheless came as a shock when it was found to have died suddenly on September 9, 2014. Apple.com immediately in tribute placed a picture of iPod in its online store (above &lsquo;Shop iPod&rsquo;, just like the commercial superstar would have wanted), to forever remind everyone about the impact and marketing clout of the hard-working pioneer.</p> <p>iPod is survived by its children: shuffle, nano and touch.</p> <p><em>&bull;&nbsp;iPod Classic, revolutionary personal music player, born October 23, 2001; died September 9, 2014</em></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="800" height="800" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/ipod-obit-1.jpg?1410859940" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-carousel-item"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-title"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Farewell, iPod Classic </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-standfirst"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item standfirst:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Thank you for the music </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-carousel-image-small"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item small image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_carousel_image_small" width="450" height="340" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/ipod-obit-0%20%281%29.jpg?1410859940" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/ipod-classic-obituary-thank-you-music/feature#comments Apple iPod and MP3 Fri, 12 Sep 2014 15:33:15 +0000 Elissa Loi 1447518 at http://www.stuff.tv VIDEOS: Watch the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch in action http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/videos-watch-iphone-6-iphone-6-plus-and-apple-watch-action/feature <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> iThing knowledge for the shortest of attention spans </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="VIDEOS: Watch the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch in action" alt="VIDEOS: Watch the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch in action" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/iphone6_0.png?1410513785" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>If you can&rsquo;t be arsed to read all our great coverage on the new iThings, let us just fill you in on them, succinct video form.

In theory, <em>Songs Of Innocence</em> should vanish entirely within a second or two. If it doesn&rsquo;t, go to the Settings app, select iTunes &amp; App Store, and then turn the Music switch off and on again. Twice, just to be sure. That&rsquo;ll do it. Sorry, Bono.</p> <p>Note that if you&rsquo;re one of the &lsquo;crazy ones&rsquo;, in a sense other than how Apple alluded to them in a classic advert, you can get your freebie back. Select Account from Quick Links, and click the Manage link next to Hidden Purchases. You&rsquo;ll then be able to raise <em>Songs Of Innocence</em> from the dead, like some kind of doddering music zombie.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-iphone-6/review">This is the iPhone 6 - hands on with Apple&#39;s new smartphone</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="721" height="312" title="Ewe Too" alt="How to remove U2’s Songs of Innocence from your iPhone, iPad, Mac and PC" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/u2-2_0.jpg?1410484627" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/how-get-u2-s-songs-innocence-your-iphone-ipad-mac-and-pc/news#comments Apple iOS 8 iPhone & iPad iPhone 6 Thu, 11 Sep 2014 14:16:21 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1447378 at http://www.stuff.tv Apple Watch will use your skin for payment security, might require daily charging http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-watch-will-use-your-skin-payment-security-might-require-daily-charging/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> More details on Apple&#039;s clever timepiece emerge after its launch </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="424" title="Swanky" alt="Apple Watch will use your skin for payment security, might require daily chargin" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/watch-1.JPG?1410484352" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Days after the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-iwatch/review" target="_blank">Apple Watch</a> was <em>finally </em>revealed, some new information has shed some light on its inner workings.</p> <p>Apple was very tight-lipped when it came to battery life at the launch.
