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.

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.

August Smart Lock heads to Apple Stores officially

August Smart Lock heads to Apple Stores officially

The team behind Apple’s exclusivity in all things has done an amazing job of making it feel like whatever they OK is golden. Take August Smart Lock for example - a keyless entry system for your home that opens your door with your smartphone. Without Apple being involved, this is just another "startup." Now that they’ve got approval to enter the Apple Store physically, they’ll be trusted implicitly. Once you're in the store, people trust that Apple will back up any claim you make. It's time for some Apple-backed home automation.

Here’s what Apple Pay will look like

With an iOS 8 update (yeah, another one) coming sometime soon, Apple Pay is set to make its debut. Believed to hit right around October 18 — like, the time OS X Yosemite rolls in — Apple Pay will let iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users pay for good with a tap of their phone. Training materials seem to have been leaked, and show us a bit more about how Apple Pay works, and what we can expect to see on our phones.

Apple holds $50m axe over surprise-spoiling suppliers

Apple holds $50m axe over surprise-spoiling suppliers

GT Advanced Technologies is currently firing on all cylinders in light of their bankruptcy filing earlier this month. One of the most interesting bits of data that’ve come out of the bankruptcy investigation is Apple’s non-disclosure agreement, and the $50 million dollar penalty the company imposes for product or information leaks. Lawyers representing GT are arguing that they need to reveal additional information about their close relationship with Apple "in the interests of creditors and shareholders."

It appears as though Apple is planning to launch its Apple Pay wireless payment system in the U.S. on Saturday, October 18th.
