Fully Charged: Apple updates most of its devices, and Resident Evil 0 remaster in January

Get up to date in a hurry with our morning news roundup

Apple device update barrage

Got a current Apple device? Well, it was probably updated yesterday: Apple issued updates for iOS 9, OS X 10.11, tvOS, and watchOS 2. The iOS 9.2 update brings tweaks to Apple Music, but otherwise seems mostly focussed on bug fixes: the list has a few dozen improvements noted all around the OS.

The tvOS 9.1 update has a much-appreciated addition: the ability to use the iOS Remote app, which had been incompatible with the new set-top box. WatchOS 2.1 brings additional language support, as well as a right-to-left interface option and other bug fixes, while OS X El Capitan 10.11.2 claims to improve Wi-Fi, Handoff, and AirDrop reliability while fixing other issues. Grab ’em while they’re hot!

Resident Evil 0 in January

Early this year, Capcom released a remastered version of the GameCube remake of Resident Evil, providing a nicely refreshed reminder of the days in which the franchise embraced survival horror rather than action. And it will do it again next month when Resident Evil 0 gets much the same treatment.

Resident Evil 0 takes the 2002 GameCube original and remasters the graphics, also adding an optional modernized control scheme and a Wesker Mode that makes the series’ notable villain the playable lead. It’ll be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 with a price of £16/US$20, and it’s out on 19 January. Three days later, on 22 January, a retail package with both Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil HD will release across Europe.

TV from Sky hits Xbox One

TV from Sky hits Xbox One

Got an Xbox One and a Sky subscription? Lucky you: yesterday, Sky launched the TV from Sky app on the console in the UK, letting you tap into its live and on-demand content at any time. That means Premier League football, Formula 1 racing, and more are now available from the console.

You’ll need either Sky Go Extra or Sky Multiscreen to use the functionality; you can upgrade to Go Extra for £5 a month, although there’s a two-month trial available right now if you want to give it a shot before committing. The app hits Xbox One a full year after PlayStation 4, but at least it’s finally here.
