Apple Watch success isn’t sales, it’s stickiness

Apple Watch success isn’t sales, it’s stickiness

Apple isn't saying how many Apple Watches it sold in the first weekend of preorders, but arguably the bigger question is how many will still be wrapped around wrists a few months after. Unofficial estimates of sales have suggested as many as a million of the iOS wearables have been earmarked for eager owners, pushing shipping estimates into the summer at the earliest, and for many it was a case of buy first, try second since preorders opened before store demo displays did.

Apple Watch: by the (unofficial) numbers

Apple Watch: by the (unofficial) numbers

Apple isn’t talking about Apple Watch figures. They’ll probably hit us with official numbers at WWDC this year, so expect a massive screen boasting how many Apple Watches were ordered or sold at that point. Analytics firm Slice Intelligence has the numbers we want, though — unofficially, of course. They estimate that on day one of Apple Watch pre-orders, just shy of one million of us — 957,000 to be precise — ordered an Apple Watch. Analyzing eReceipt data, Slice says the average sale price was $503.83.

No surprise: Apple Watch bags 1M pre-orders on day one

No surprise: Apple Watch bags 1M pre-orders on day one

Despite some caveats and worries about supplies, it should come as a shock to no one except the hardest disbeliever that the Apple Watch did quite well on its very first day, at least as far as pre-orders are concerned. Sure, there might be a bit of incredulity, even perhaps shaking of heads, at the outcome, but this is Apple we're talking about. Although the company will most likely not release official numbers later on, research firm Slice Intelligence claims that almost 1 million pre-orders of the Apple Watch were made on Friday alone.

Beats Solo2 headphones debut in Apple’s Gold, Space Gray, Silver colors

While the last few days of Apple news have been dominated by the new Apple Watch and Retina MacBooks, the company's recently acquired Beats Electronics has quietly made a new release of its own. Starting now, Beats' Solo2 Wireless headphones are available in three new colors: Gold, Silver, and Space Gray. These are the same shades that Apple introduced back in 2013 with the release of the iPhone 5S, and are now found across the company's product line-up, from iPhones and iPads, to the Watch and new MacBook.

Report: Apple wants exclusive streaming rights from artists

Report: Apple wants exclusive streaming rights from artists

Apple is looking for exclusive content from big-name artists, says a new report. Specifically named were Florence and the Machine and Taylor Swift, but it’s possible Apple had even larger aspirations. In a recent interview, Kanye West hinted he recently turned down a multi-million dollar deal with Apple, though he didn’t really discuss what it entailed. The artists were approached to provide content for Beats Music, which has gone largely untouched since Apple purchased it last year. It’s also said to be the service Apple is leveraging for their rumored streaming service.

PC market down — Apple, Lenovo, HP are all up

PC market down — Apple, Lenovo, HP are all up

By and large, we’re not interested in PCs as much as we used to be. A recent study by Gartner suggests the PC market took a dip once again, with sales slipping 1.3% over this time last year. While the lump-sum “Others” are largely at fault, even Dell saw their numbers take a hit, dropping 3.8% versus Q1 2014. Others are surprisingly up, though, with Lenovo leading the charge, gaining 13.5% over last year. Apple also made significant headway, proving the changes made to their Macs are having positive effects.

iPhone spreads WiFi calling in iOS 8.3 to more carriers

iPhone spreads WiFi calling in iOS 8.3 to more carriers

Apple's release of iOS 8.3 yesterday may have initially wowed with a whole bunch of new emojis, but it's the spread of WiFi calling that could have longer-term appeal for iPhone users. Until now only supported on T-Mobile USA, the functionality means that even when you have no carrier network connection, an iPhone on WiFi will still be able to make voice calls. That is, assuming you're with one of the carriers for whom iOS 8.3 activated the tech this week.

Samsung may be back in business with Apple for A9 SoC

Samsung may be back in business with Apple for A9 SoC

You may not know who made the SoC powering your iPhone, and that’s by design. Apple doesn’t readily discuss specs because they just don’t consider them to be important; your experience is what matters. We love talking chipsets, though, so the latest news on Apple’s A9 SoC set for the iPhone 6S piqued our interest. Next time you buy an iPhone, it might be powered by Samsung, who is reportedly receiving Apple’s full order for their next-gen SoC, which is believed to debut in their next iPhone.

Pandora CFO talks streaming music, calls Apple a ‘frenemy’

Pandora CFO talks streaming music, calls Apple a ‘frenemy’

We know how we feel about an Apple streaming music option, and we’re sure you have likely formed an opinion or two yourself. Will we ditch our chosen streaming option for Apple’s? Time will tell, as the service is believed to come to fruition at WWDC this year. Perhaps even more curious is the business side of all this, where Apple is coaxing record labels to let them stream music, and other services are already feeling the pinch. To that, Pandora CFO Mike Herring made some interesting comments about Apple recently.
