Apple Watch WatchKit drops for devs in November

Apple Watch WatchKit drops for devs in November

Apple Watch got its big reveal last month, alongside the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but so far developers have been left on tenterhooks as to when they can put their code on the wearable. That day is almost upon us, however, with Apple CEO Tim Cook confirming that the WatchKit SDK - the developer toolkit that will allow for Apple Watch apps to be developed and tested - is due to arrive in November 2014.

Apple Pay coming Monday, has 500 additional banks

Apple Pay coming Monday, has 500 additional banks

At Apple’s event today, there is a lot going on, and we’re already getting a lot of good news. On stage, Tim cook says Apple Pay is coming Monday, and that the company believes their mobile payment system will be “profound”, and “huge”. To that end, Apple is announcing they’ve signed up 500 additional banks, and have support of all major networks in using their payment system. You’ll also get to use it soon, maybe sooner than you thought (if you’ve got an iPhone 6, obviously).

Apple Store down: new products incoming

Apple Store down: new products incoming

We’re in line at the Apple Event this morning in California and the Apple Store has gone down. This means that new Apple hardware is fast approaching, and that it’ll be available for order - or pre-order, at least - later today. This sort of down time has happened with essentially every major release of a product from Apple over the past several years, iPhone to iPad to MacBook Pro and back again. Today we’ll expect some iPad Air, some Mac, and some Yosemite for sure - though that last one will come from your App Store, not Apple’s online store.

Apple may kick Fitbit out of stores over HealthKit

Apple may kick Fitbit out of stores over HealthKit

Not long ago, we reported that Fitbit wasn’t enthralled with Apple’s HealthKit. They didn’t say it was lacking, but they also said they were being a bit more pragmatic about it than some users would hope for. According to a new report, Apple will stop selling Fitbit products in their stores, instead choosing to make way for their own wearables which do support HealthKit. Though it’s not clear exactly why Fitbit is being removed from store shelves, the HealthKit slight is hard to look past.

Apple slips up, leaks iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

Apple slips up, leaks iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

So, hey — there’s an Apple event tomorrow. We’ve been speculating, like everyone else, that a few new iPads were coming. Typically, that’s just chatter until Apple reveals what they’ve got for us, which usually comes via their announcement. No matter how convincing the leaks or rumors are (remember the iPhone 6?!), we temper it with pragmatism, and patiently wait for Apple to confirm things. They’ve done that a bit early this time, with the new iPad owner’s manual tipping Apple’s iHand for tomorrow’s event.

Apple event predictions: 3D Apple, iPad Air, Mini, Yosemite

Several new bits and pieces are being tipped towards release this week as Apple’s next big event takes place tomorrow, the 16th of October. We’ll be there with bells on - and information releases as fast as you can read them. There we’ll see all manner of new devices, likely an iPad Air update, a new iPad Mini, and more than likely an official releasing of OS X Yosemite for desktop and notebook machines of all kinds - including a tipped new MacBook Air with Retina display - though that's just a less-than-respectable rumor.

Facebook and Apple now cover female employees who freeze eggs

Facebook and Apple now cover female employees who freeze eggs

In a world where the biggest tech companies are often criticized for employing relatively low numbers of female workers, Apple and Facebook have both instituted a notable change in policy: they'll both now cover the costs for employees to have eggs frozen, something more women are choosing to do so that their younger years can be spent working on building a career. Both are now covering costs that will, under typical pricing structures, allow female workers to have up to two procedure rounds.

Whistle dog wearable hitting Apple Store, IFTTT

Second exec from Apple’s Sapphire supplier dumped stock

Second exec from Apple’s Sapphire supplier dumped stock

The problems at Apple’s now former Sapphire glass partner GT Advanced were longer in the tooth than previously realized. Their partnership, which GT deemed “oppressive” in bankruptcy filings, is being detailed a bit more, now. It seems their CEO wasn’t the only one dumping stock, as the guy in charge of the actual plant in Arizona was doing the same. Unable to meet Apple’s deadlines for getting the plant up and running — which means making Sapphire glass — GT execs instead chose to tuck tail, dump stock, and run.

This is what Apple Watch apps may look like

This is what Apple Watch apps may look like

The Apple Watch is an exciting concept, and though we’ve seen it for ourselves — it’s still a concept. Apple didn’t show off any apps that made good sense for their wearable, and were more than tight-lipped about how Apple Watch will take advantage of its home on your wrist while still working seamlessly with your iPhone. A new batch of app renders for the Apple Watch show what may be in store for us, and give an early glimpse as to how apps could end up working.
