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?

Yikes! There are so many folks out there slamming Apple's download servers trying to get the iOS 8 update that some major issues have been reported. Some folks have had their update fail and are now unable to restore from a backup. This includes users of the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch around the globe.

Between software update errors, server errors and others, updating to iOS 8 right now could be a harrowing experience. The worst culprit is actually an unknown error that sometimes pops up through iTunes. Afterwards, even clicking on the "possible fixes" link provided doesn't handle the issue in all cases. This causes the device to get stuck on the download process screen and rebooting it doesn't fix the problem.

It might be worth it to hold tight for a few days until the major glut of consumers is already finished getting the update.

The long wait is finally over. While developers have been able to play with iOS 8 for quite some time already, the rest of us mere mortals have been content to read about all of the cool features. Speaking of cool features, the video above will walk you through most of them.

Here's a quick list of some of the big highlights,
  • Improved integration between Apple devices (although you need to avoid iCloud Drive for now).
  • Interactive notifications
  • App widgets in the Notification Center
  • Messages improvements that let users manage group conversations
  • Third-party access to both the keyboard and Touch ID has been enabled
  • Apple QuickType predictive keyboard
  • A new Health app is included with iOS 8 which combines health and fitness data from several places
  • A new Family Sharing feature lets families of up to six people share apps, music, books, and more
This is just a short list, but there are quite a few more, including refinements and tweaks to existing features. Of course, if you plan on downloading the update as Apple pushes it out, it's important to note which devices are compatible with the new iOS. Here's a list of those:
  • iPhone 5s
  • iPhone 5c
  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 4s (compatible, but not recommended due to performance issues)
  • iPod touch (fifth-generation only)
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini
  • iPad mini with Retina display
  • iPad (third-generation and fourth-generation)
  • iPad 2
Your easiest method to get iOS 8 on your device is to get the Apple OTA (over the air) update. It's as easy as opening the Settings app, tapping General, and then touching Software Update. After that you just need to follow the instructions to install iOS 8.

Your other option is to connect your iOS device to a Windows or Mac computer where you can download and install the new software through iTunes. Of course, it's important to back up your device using iCloud or iTunes before...
