iOS App Store predicted to host 5 million apps by 2020

iOS App Store predicted to host 5 million apps by 2020

Earlier this year, Apple announced that the iOS App Store is now home to two million apps. That's an absurd number in its own right, but a new report from app analytics site Sensor Tower predicts that number could more than double to 5 million apps by 2020. That's a pretty huge prediction when you consider it took the App Store eight years to reach its two million milestone.

Far from a failure, iPhone SE is Apple’s sleeper hit

Far from a failure, iPhone SE is Apple’s sleeper hit

The iPhone SE has its fair share of critics, but those negative voices have done little to impact its popularity. According to a new report from Kantar, a research firm, the iPhone SE was Great Britain’s “top selling device” in the quarter that reached its end this past June. The iPhone SE barely beat out the iPhone 6s, holding 9.2-percent of sales in the region versus the iPhone 6s smartphone's 9.1-percent. The EU5 saw iOS growth during the quarter, as well.

September 7 said to be the iPhone 7 release date

All signs may point to Apple's new smartphone coming in September, but just when exactly is the iPhone 7 release date? Anyone with even a passing interest in mobile is keeping at least one eye on rumors around the Cupertino firm's newest handset, with tidbits like dual cameras and, for the first time, a move away from a physical home button all among the whispers, but the big question is always around when we can see the iPhone 7 for real.

MacBook Pro 2016 report details GPU, secondary keyboard display

If you haven't heard the rumors yet, Apple is apparently planning a new MacBook Pro for release later this year. The decision to release a new MacBook Pro - a line that hasn't seen a new release in four years - comes as Apple deals with lagging iPad sales, suggesting the company may turn to an old favorite to help pull it out of this rut. New report has surfaced today, giving us additional details about what to expect if this supposed MacBook does indeed exist.

iPad Pro 12.9 inch now included in Apple’s refurbished list

If you've ever wanted to get your hands on one of 'em fancy iPad Pros, especially the bigger one, but didn't really have the heart to part ways with most of your hard-earned cash, now you have a chance to reconsider. Apple has just added the 12.9-inch iPad Pro to its selection of "Certified Refurbished" products, some with a discount as big as $160. This does make the iPad Pro a lot more palatable in terms of price, though it comes with your usual disclaimers of an already used, but in good condition, device.

After iPhone 7 release, a glass iPhone 7 Pro for 2017

After iPhone 7 release, a glass iPhone 7 Pro for 2017

We’ll probably be seeing Apple’s new iPhone next month, but speculation is already looking far into the future, and that future may include a glass casing. Foxconn has been tipped in an effort to develop its own glass phone casings, something sources say it has been working on for the past year or so to perfect in time for the 2017 iPhones; it is also reportedly developing its own high-end OLED technologies thanks to its Sharp acquisition in a bid to take on Samsung and China's Biel Crystal.

New iPhone 7 release date feature promises a giant launch

New iPhone 7 release date feature promises a giant launch

The new iPhone 7 coming later this year will likely be one of Apple's biggest launches ever. Not just because the "tick" year of Apple's tick-tock releases is generally the bigger year in sales, but because this version of the iPhone looks and acts different from the last one. While the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were bigger than the iPhone 5s, and the iPhone 5 was bigger than the iPhone 4s, functionality has been largely the same since the beginning of the device line. Today a new feature rumor has been reinforced.

iPhone 7 release date nears as new video details Plus

Apple's iPhone 7 - as we assume it'll be called - grows ever nearer to its release date, and all along its path are littered leaks. What we're seeing today is a video which shows mock-ups (really, really good mock-ups) of the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Pro, and iPhone 6s. This video hypothesizes the idea that there could just be an iPhone 6 SE - much like we've seen with the iPhone SE on the market today, using the body of the iPhone 4 and the brains of the iPhone 6. Three different colors are also shown.

New MacBook Pro 2016 detailed with Touch ID release date tip

This morning it's been reported that a new MacBook Pro could be arriving by the end of this year from Apple. This new MacBook Pro for 2016 would have a very similar look to previous models - albeit a bit thinner and more "MacBook-like". It'd also have its own Touch ID sensor, allowing Apple to once again push the world of passwords further away from the mainstream.

Apple tipped to have 2 smartwatches later this year

Apple tipped to have 2 smartwatches later this year

While it seems that the smartwatch market has gone into a slight hibernation, Apple isn't yet leaving the party where it burst into as a latecomer. In fact, contrary to previous expectations, it will have not one but two Apple Watches slated for the second half of this year. Almost like an iPhone 5s and 5c strategy, one of the alleged smartwatches will only vary so slightly from the current model, while the real Apple Watch 2 gets most of the new features, like GPS and a bigger battery.

Apple’s Lightning EarPods revealed in second video

Apple’s Lightning EarPods revealed in second video

We've quickly reached the point where rumors and leaks about new versions of Apple's EarPods headphones are just as prevalent as those about the upcoming headphone jack-less iPhone 7 itself. Over the past few weeks, there's been several questionable images claiming to show a new pair of wired Earpods that use a Lightning connector instead of a standard 3.5mm plug. Then a video surfaced revealing a fairly authentic looking, functional pair of the headphones. Now a second video has been released, offering the best look at a pair of Lightning Earpods yet.

Apple acquires Turi, an AI and machine learning startup

Apple has acquired Seattle-based AI and machine learning startup Turi, according to sources, for around $200 million. Apple has not confirmed details about the acquisition, instead proffering its blanket statement that, on occasion, it buys small tech companies and generally doesn’t talk about why. Sources say the Turi team will probably remain in Seattle, but it isn’t known what exactly Apple has planned for the company.
