iOS 8 has a lot of consumer-facing features that are sure to please iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users, but it also supports two new web standards behind the scenes — WebGL and IndexedDB — that will allow for developers to create better games and more capable mobile websites.

iOS 8 brought a bunch of new camera and photo editing features to iOS devices, including the new Time-lapse mode in Camera.

Camera now lets you shoot time-lapse videos by merely tapping the shutter — but there are a few things to keep in mind before you begin. Here’s how to shoot great time-lapse videos on your iPhone.
Apple has released a new version of Safari for OS X Mavericks this afternoon, available now as a free update through the Mac App Store.

Apple has been marketing the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as “bigger than bigger” since announcing the two smartphones at the Flint Center last week.

Apple promoted a number of different apps at its iPhone 6 and Apple Watch event last week that show how the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus can be utilized by developers to show content based on a two-column view in landscape mode and other intuitive ways. CNN has taken full advantage of the opportunity by releasing a new app optimized for iPhone 6 on the App Store this morning.
