More iPads sold in 4 years than any Apple product in history

More iPads sold in 4 years than any Apple product in history

This afternoon Apple has suggested that they’ve sold more iPads in the product’s first four years of availability than any other product. Even the iPhone, Apple’s best-selling product, didn’t reach the sales numbers the iPad did in its first four years in its own first four years. Adoption of the iPad was a lot easier to accomplish than the iPhone - no data costs, after all. Now Apple's quest must be how to replace those iPads - what's a new iPad when you already have one, after all?

iPhone 6 sets record for first month orders

iPhone 6 sets record for first month orders

Today Apple announced that they’d beat their record for first-month orders for the iPhone. They did this with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and according to Tim Cook, they beat their new record for most orders in the first 30 days "by a lot. a whole lot." Though they didn’t say numbers specifically - they’ll likely save that for their next earnings call - they did go on to note how they haven’t even launched in China yet.

Report: iPad Pro not even a “thing” yet

Report: iPad Pro not even a “thing” yet

Remember all that chatter earlier in the year (and then a bit later on, and still later) about an iPad Pro? It’s supposed to be a 12-inch tablet, with many assuming the behemoth will take the place of the Macbook Air. It all seems so plausible, except for one thing: we don’t have it yet. A new report suggests the iPad Pro isn’t even close to being an actual product, as many would have you believe. In fact, it’s not even a “thing” yet.

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

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.

Bono says sorry about that automatic iTunes album

Bono says sorry about that automatic iTunes album

Last month Apple surprised its users with U2's newest album for free, something that resulted in a huge number of downloads...not all of them intentional. Some users expressed frustration with the automatic downloads and the inability to reverse them, which eventually prompted Apple to release instructions on how to nuke the album. Fast-forward a bit and Bono has addressed the mini snafu in response to a fan's question, saying that he is sorry for the forced download and explaining what went awry with their "beautiful idea".

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.

Here’s what Apple Pay will look like

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."

iPhone 6 spreads: 36 more countries in October

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are getting even bigger, with China, Israel, and South Korea among 36 new countries and territories set to get the new iOS 8 smartphones in October. A staggered roll-out across locations through the month will see the iPhone 6 family available in 69 countries and territories before November has even started, though Apple says it's still on track to increase that number to more than 115 before 2014 is through.
