The world of cyber-security just got better for iOS 8 users. Agile Bits, the creators of the popular 1Password app and service just made their remarkable software FREE to new users on iOS. On top of that, previous users of the v4 of the software get a free upgrade to the Pro version.

For those unfamiliar with the software, 1Password basically lets you securely store your important data and passwords, and can automatically log you into websites with a single button. With 1Password, you no longer need to remember your username, password, or even the website address.

The new pricing model is not all though. This newest version also includes some added functionality with iOS 8, including the ability to work with Apple's Touch ID fingerprint sensor! Awesome!

Here's a quick breakdown of the rest of the cool new 1Password features for iOS 8:

As the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus arrive in stores in the first launch countries around the world tomorrow, Australia is gearing up to be the first country where the phones will officially go on sale, and MacRumors reports that the excitement is growing throughout Australia, with fans lining up around the block.

Stores should be just about to open in Australia, and MacRumors has some great pictures of the lines of customers outside an Apple Store in Doncaster, Australia, who have been camping out from 6am the previous day. Apparently the line is so long it actually runs the entire length of the shopping center.

MacRumors reports that other photos from Twitter user @rodgerodger in Brisbane, Australia, show the lines outside the store there.

And for those who have decided to have their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus delivered to their home and bypass all the lines, MacRumors says that some devices are already on their way ready for delivery.

One of the coolest new features of iOS 8 is the widgets which show up in the notification panel, but they won't be enabled by default in every instance. Because of this, we wanted to share a useful breakdown of how to install and use widgets on your newly upgrades iOS 8 device.

Here are the steps:

  • First you need to install apps that already have widgets for iOS 8 created for them - alternatively you can update an app to the latest version if the app supports widgets.
  • Next, after you have installed the app, you need to pull down the Notification panel on your home or lock screen and head to the "Today" section.
  • In the bottom of this area look for an "Edit" button. This will take you to another screen where widgets can be set up (although you won't find the word "widget" anywhere).
  • Specifically, Apple widgets will show up by default in a "Do Not Include" tab next to a green "+" sign. Clicking on it will enable the widget, but if you click and hold it, the right side of an active widget will let you move it up and down your list. Alternatively, if you tap on the red "-" sign, this will remove widgets.
  • Once you have activated a widget by pressing "Done" in the upper right, the widget will show up in the "Today" area, and that's it!
Here's a link to a handy list of the most current iOS 8 apps which have widgets already: http://www.iphoneforums.net/threads...-apps-with-notification-center-widgets.69078/

So, based upon Apple's own reveal, we know that some version of the Apple Watch will start out at $349 in pricing, but Apple has yet to reveal any specific pricing for any of the devices. Some speculate that the Sport version of the Apple Watch will be the one that starts with the $349 price, while the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition will command a higher premium.

Apple did reveal some of the materials the devices will be made of, however, which lead analyst John Gruber to predict what he believes the prices of these devices might be. His analysis is probably quite shocking if true.
According to Gruber, the following pricing model is very realistic based upon the materials the devices will be made of:
  • Apple Watch Sport with aluminum/glass: $349
  • Apple Watch with stainless steel/sapphire: $999
  • Apple Watch Edition with 18-karat gold/sapphire: $4,999
Yes... you read that number correctly, the gold version of the Edition watch could be as much as $5,000 USD! Gruber points out that this is because the watch will not be "gold-colored" or gold plated, but will actually be 18-carat solid gold. Based upon the price of gold and the weight of the watch case, Gruber estimates that the bare minimum price we will see for this version of the watch will be $2,000, and could get as high as $10,000.

He points out that an 18-karat gold Rolex Submariner Date costs around $34,250, (or $8,550 for the stainless steel version), so when you put it in that perspective, the price isn't too crazy. Still, if true, it means Apple really does intend to compete more in the watch industry, rather than the smartwatch industry.

What do you think of Apple's chances in this arena?
