+Rene Ritchie why can't i see any of your video podcasts since August via my AppleTV? They used to just work but now they don't. Well now as in a while back.
Any ideas? MacBreak Weekly is no longer a regular Wednesday night watch for me either. i'm from Oz, but in NZ at the moment, but that's got nothing to do with it......i have a USA DNS account. Nothings changed on my end. NetFlix and all the other things i use vi my USA DNS continue to work fine.
cheers

My iPhone 6 Plus review is live! finally finally

http://www.imore.com/iphone-6-plus-review 
There's that scene in The Empire Strikes Back, where you see the Star Destroyer, the one that looked so big in the first film. Then you see a shadow fall over it, and the Super Star Destroyer once again redefines your whole perception of big. The iPhone 6 Plus is just exactly like that. It's 5.5-inch screen is so much bigger than any previous iPhone that it changes the way you think...

Welcome to iMore, +Serenity Caldwell  ! http://www.imore.com/welcome-imore-serenity-caldwell

Please give her a warm welcome!
Serenity Caldwell wears many hats. She comes from a family of musicians, studied theater and film, and worked for Apple Retail. She's an avid podcaster and photographer. She can knock you off the roller derby track faster than you can say R2D2. For the last four years she's also been at the heart and soul of Macworld, producing columns, videos, and ebooks, speaking at conferences, and,...

I loved +Serenity Caldwell in your podcast appearances, such as Vector. She has the most adorable laugh ever, and a very charming voice, could listen to her for hours. It's great that she joined your team, love this video http://youtu.be/dlEGT_j-Q3Q, it's a pleasure to hear the voice and the beautiful woman behind it. What you're building up with +iMore is remarkable, Rene. Hats down to all of you.

Broke out the macro to take a close-up look at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in micro-detail. http://www.imore.com/macro-look-iphone-6-and-iphone-6-plus-micro-fine-detail 
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are brand new takes on Apple's iconic design. They're bigger, thinner, and their edges are rounded. The camera rises now from the casing even as the screen glides seamlessly into the edge. And the screens have gone from Retina to Retina HD to even denser Retina HD. Combined, how much of a difference does all this make? To find out I grabbed a Canon 5S Mark...

http://www.imore.com/vector-61-kids-and-kardashians-christina-warren
Vector is a news and analysis show focusing on the biggest stories, hottest trends, and most important issues in technology and popular culture. On this week's show, Guy's big iPhone is too big, Christina's clutch is too small, Georgia explains the psychology of kids and gaming, the Kardashian game is inclusively, nudely, bananas, someone shot JR, Rene's smart TV interface sucks, and...

Hey, +Rene Ritchie +Guy Englishlove the show however I have a request. Can you talk about other topics from time to time? I know you guys are all Apple Centric but the show is about "important topics in tech today". At times I feel like I'm hearing the same thing over each week.

Also for Iterate I'd like if you could interview/chat with Devs from other platforms. For instance I loved the episode you guys did with the Devs from Shifty Jelly.

I listen to pretty much all your shows but I'd just like some variation.

Thanks.

What’s on my iPhone 6 Plus Home screens, as of today:

http://www.imore.com/whats-renes-iphone-6-plus-right-now
Apple has just finished their yearly iPhone update, so it's time for those of us here at iMore to update what we're using on our iPhones. I'm going to kick off this round with my iPhone 6 Plus because, of the new devices, it's newest.

My iPhone 6 review is up! (Yes, finally!) Spoiler: It's no about being bigger or better, it's about being more capable and accessible:

http://www.imore.com/iphone-6-review
There's that scene at the very beginning of Star Wars, where you see the blockade runner fleeing towards a planet, and it looks pretty big. Then you start seeing the Star Destroyer, and seeing it, and seeing it, and it redefines your whole perception of big. The iPhone 6 is not like that at all. While its 4.7-inch screen is significantly bigger than last year's 4-inch model, its thinner...

I had the first X so it feels like I have my old phone back (went to the G3 a couple months ago, for size mostly). I thought the 2013 was the best phone experience, any OS, so expect the 2014 to follow suit. I need more time w/ it though and Apple caught up a lot so my judgement will be a lot harder this year.

If you're Android though, I'm not seeing any better at this point though.

Phil is smart.
 
Folks, Android updates fail all the time. If you're taking Schadenfreude in this, well, you shouldn't. 

And glass houses are a bitch.
Apple has just released iOS 8.0.1, a bug fix update for iOS 8. Unfortunately, it's left some iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with Touch ID and cellular connection issues. Reboots don't seem to fix it. It's possible Apple can fix and re-issue the update quickly, or a workaround will be found shortly, but if you've already updated, and you're affected, here's what you need to do:

Guess Apple should have asked some of their horology metalurgists to consult with their telephony metalurgists.
