Now that Christmas and Boxing Day are a memory for 2013, we here at AlliOSNews are curious what Apple gadgets you got this holiday season! Yes we are being totally nosey but seriously, who doesn’t want to share about all the Apple goodies we all got?!
Don’t forget to check out all of the AlliOSNews How To’s if you need help getting that new Apple gadget setup or need help with doing something on them!
Editor Note: This poll will remain at the top of the AlliOSNews page throughout 31 October – 1 November. Newer articles and updates can be found directly below.
Tomorrow is the big day!
Starting tomorrow you can order your new iPad Air or go to your local Apple store or reseller and pick up it up. All indications are there will be plenty of stock so finding the one you want should not be overly difficult. Which leads to our poll of the day!
One of the big new features in iOS 7 is the App Auto Update feature. This allows iOS 7 to automatically download updates to apps that are installed on your iPhone or iPad without you having to go to the Updates section of the App Store on your phone or sync with iTunes to update apps.
The good news: You always have the latest app on your device.
The bad news: That feature you really like could go away with an update.
So tell us what you think AlliOSNews readers, do you use the feature? Do you like it? Give us your vote!
It has now been nearly 24 hours since Apple unleashed iOS 7 on the world. Through server timeouts and 4 hour update times, you’ve made it to having the shiny new mobile operating system from Cupertino on your iPhone or iPad.
So tell us here at AlliOSNews what you think? The truth is, some of us have had iOS 7 for months so yesterday was a bit of a fun day but not one full of surprises. We love blogging but sometimes it ruins the fun of the cool new things. We’ve said our piece about iOS 7 so what about you?
What Do You Think of iOS 7?
Give us your vote and tell us what you think of the latest offering from Apple and if you feel so compelled, leave us a comment below on why you feel that way.
Earlier this week Facebook announced that their photo social app/service Instagram will support uploading of 17 second videos from users. This is in direct competition to Vine, the Twitter owned service that offers the same thing.
Now I have to say, I’m one who never used Vine but I find I have already posted a few videos in Instagram… and I kinda like it.
So my question to you: Will you post more videos on Instagram now that it is supported? Cast your vote!

So here we are, just a few days shy of the two month mark of when the new iPad was released by Apple. Much of the fanfare has died down and Apple sold some 11.8 million iPads in the last quarter – up 158% over the same quarter a year ago. So there are plenty of the new iPad out there and I suspect many of you reading AlliOSNews already have on in your hot little hands.
So is it all that? The big features touted in the new iPad were the Retina display, improved processor and camera and LTE support here in the US (sorry Australia). But has it been everything you expected?
Let me hear your thoughts. Answer the poll below and leave a comment to let me know what you think. Next Monday, May 7th I will pick one winner who will receive a $20 iTunes Gift Card.

[Update] – Congratulations to Trisha Stream! You won a $20 iTunes Gift Card for your vote!
As I was getting updates to apps in iTunes this morning, I took a glance down and notice that I have 560 apps in my iTunes Library. That got me to thinking: When did I get all of these apps? I don’t remember downloading that many apps. But I think that is really the point right? Developers – and Apple – want the buying experience so simple, so amazingly easy to do that you don’t remember dropping that .99 Cents here or there.
Clearly, in my case, it is effective.
So what about you? How many apps do you have in your iTunes library? A few dozen? Hundreds? Thousands?
As 2011 starts to wind down it’s time to look back and reflect on the apps that made our iPhones and iPads all-the-better during the year. Over the course of the next several days I’ll be posting multiple polls asking what your favorite app is in a particular category. I’m starting with News apps. There have been several new ones in 2011, most notably The Daily being an iPad-exclusive daily newspaper. There have been others though including a completely revamped Pulse and CNN apps and who can leave out the news aggregator app Flipboard.
So which is best?
Vote below and if your favorite app isn’t listed just leave a comment below of what you think is the best News app of 2011.
