WhatsApp Calling is now rolling out to iPhone users, here’s how to get it!

Android users have been making free calls using their data connections over WhatsApp for weeks now but on Tuesday, the feature was finally made available to iPhone users.

A new version of WhatsApp is now available on the Apple App Store with the following description:

If you’ve already updated and are madly pecking around WhatsApp settings trying to call someone, though, hold up. WhatsApp Calling is rolling out slowly over the next several weeks, says the update description.

If you don’t see the WhatsApp Calling feature after the update, you have to ask an Android user to call you on WhatsApp, by that the feature will be enabled soon.

Apple releases iOS 8.4 Beta with a Shiny Revamped Music App!

iOS 8.4's music app

Think that iOS’ music player is overdue for a remake? You’re going to get your wish. Apple has released the first iOS 8.4 beta to developers, and its centerpiece is a shiny, new Music app. The refresh includes at least a few long-sought changes, including some borrowed from iTunes: There’s a mini player that sticks around while you’re browsing, global search and an “Up Next” song queue. You’ll also see a sleeker iTunes Radio interface that helps you discover new tracks.

There’s no sign of the Beats-based music service rumored to come alongside 8.4, but that’s not supposed to show up until Apple’s developer conference at the earliest — if it exists, it’s probably going to stay under wraps for a little while.

Apple Watch pre-orders now open: shipping times range from weeks to months!

watch-h1

The Apple Watch is here! Kind of. Pre-orders are now open online, which is honestly not as exciting as waiting in line for days in anticipation of the next big thing. However, the actual watches will take weeks, and for most people more than a month to arrive, as shipping times are surprisingly long.

We checked out shipping times for all three versions of the Apple Watch: the Sport, the stainless steel, and the premium Edition, and here’s what we found:

  • Apple Watch Sport ships in June (!)
  • Apple Watch (stainless steel) shipping times are four to six weeks
  • Apple Watch Edition shipping times vary between models from July to August (!!)

Hey, but if you want to order a band without the watch it will arrive quicker: it only takes 2 to 4 weeks for most bands to ship. Some ship in May (classic buckle), and others are simply not available yet (modern buckle).

You can pre-order an Apple Watch at the Apple Store.
