Apple’s rumored deal with JDI could bring us everything we’re hoping for

Apple’s rumored deal with JDI could bring us everything we’re hoping for

Apple loves to have a tight supply chain -- one they can control, which will yield the parts they want. They tried in earnest to get Sapphire glass up and running with a partnership with GT Advanced, which ended up a disaster. Now they’re reportedly turning to a much more solid partner for display technology. Though you may not have heard of Japan Display Inc (JDI), you’ve likely seen their work. Though the report is fairly benign, it has a lot of interesting angles (pun intended). The deal will reportedly see Apple dump just shy of $2 billion into a new plant.

Apple launches repair program for MacBook Pros with faulty GPU

If your MacBook Pro has what appears to be an issue with its screen, there may be reprieve for you. In some older MacBook Pros, a GPU supplied by AMD wasn’t up to snuff, and is causing some users to see lines or otherwise glitchy behavior. Now, Apple is going to fix those computers for you, even if they’re out of warranty.

Apple faces lawsuit over EV battery expert poaching

Apple faces lawsuit over EV battery expert poaching

Apple's electric car project may only have been grist for the rumor-mill for a week, but it's already landed the firm in legal hot water over alleged expert-poaching. Speculation about the so-called "Project Titan" underway at a secret facility near Apple's Cupertino headquarters has so-far centered on intermingling rumors of EV powertrains and self-driving technology.

Samsung buys LoopPay — goes after Google Wallet, Apple Pay

Two weeks ago, a report emerged that Samsung was looking to work a mobile payments processor into the Galaxy S6. LoopPay was alleged to be the system Samsung was leaning on. At the time, we collectively logged it into the memory bank as something that was plausible, and smart, but ultimately needed confirmation from Samsung before it was truly believable. Though we obviously don’t know what the Galaxy S6 has in store for us, Samsung just announced they purchased LoopPay.

Motorola boss rebuffs Apple’s Ive Moto Maker slight

Motorola boss rebuffs Apple’s Ive Moto Maker slight

Whether you use Apple products or not, you have to admit; they’re really gorgeous, masterfully crafted devices. Jony Ive and his crew dedicate a lot of time and energy into creating some really great hardware, so his views on the subject of design should be treated with a level of respect. I mean, the guy was knighted — he’s probably worth hearing out. Still, the guy running Motorola was non-plussed about recent statements Ive made. Though he didn’t specifically call Motorola out, Ive’s comments were pretty transparent.

Apple awarded patent for iPhone headset ala Gear VR

It seems like almost everyone is getting on the VR trend these days. Surprisingly, even Apple seems to be game, or at least considered the possibility. The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) just granted Cupertino a patent for a "Head-Mounted Display Apparatus for Retaining a Portable Electronic Device with Display". Or to keep it short, a Samsung Gear VR-like accessory but powered by the iPhone instead. Is Apple now jumping on the virtual reality bandwagon? Probably not yet, but at least the legal groundwork has been established.

Apple Watch orders reportedly top 5 million for first retail push

According to the familiar unnamed sourced, Apple has reportedly asked suppliers to provide between 5-6 million Apple Watches for their initial push to retail. The sheer volume of the order suggests Apple is preparing for massive onslaught at retail stores, which will likely bring lines much like we see with iPhone releases. Apple is also keeping themselves grounded, and have reportedly asked for half of those orders to be the entry-level Apple Watch Sport, with much of the rest going toward the Apple Watch.
