Apple Watch in-store stock a no-go until at least June

Apple Watch in-store stock a no-go until at least June

On launch day (early morning?), we saw Apple Watch’s shipment timeframe slip from April 24 to a few weeks later. Then, it was four to six weeks out; later, Apple would only promise your Apple Watch would ship sometime in June. That leaves many impulse shoppers with no avenue for getting their Apple Watch unless they pay exorbitant amounts on eBay. If you can hold out until June (at the earliest), Apple retail boss Angela Ahrendts says they’ll have the Apple Watch in-store and ready for purchase.

Retail Apple Watches discovered to still have diagnostic port

Retail Apple Watches discovered to still have diagnostic port

Remember back in early March when it was discovered that the then-in development Apple Watch had a hidden diagnostic port inside the bottom groove where the band connects? The 6-dot brass contact array was assumed to be used, well, for diagnostic tasks, but speculation began to rise that the wearable may one day accept "smart straps." Several sources then said that the port was only for internal use, and would not be found on the Watch when it begins shipping to customers. Well, guess what some users have found when trying on the new device in Apple Stores on Friday?

Apple Watch scalpers selling pre-orders on eBay for over $2,000

Apple Watch scalpers selling pre-orders on eBay for over $2,000

It seems to be a tradition with the release of each new Apple product, but is never more apparent than when the first generation of a device makes its debut. Of course, I'm talking about buying one the moment it becomes available and then selling it on eBay for a huge profit. Like each new iPhone and iPad that come in the years before, the Apple Watch does not disappoint in this regard. Apple's website was bombarded with pre-orders the moment they became available, and more than a few have ended up on eBay with high mark-up prices.

Apple Watch AppleCare+ pricing not as bad as rumor suggested

Apple Watch AppleCare+ pricing not as bad as rumor suggested

Earlier this month, we found a report that suggested AppleCare+ for the Apple Watch could be quite expensive. Scaling up to $999 for the Apple Watch Edition, it seemed a bit much for a wearable. Still, AppleCare+ is a good idea if you’ve got any Apple device, as the ease of taking it in and getting care long past the standard period can be handy. Now that the Apple Watch is out, we’re getting an accurate look at how much AppleCare+ really is.

Apple Watch still shipping, but you’ll wait until June to get it

Apple Watch still shipping, but you’ll wait until June to get it

If you slept on the Apple Watch launch, you’re probably going to need some morning coffee before you read this. While a lot of people were tucked away in bed during the Apple Watch overnight launch, some stayed up. Some waited up (or woke up early) to order their Apple Watch, and it’s causing some supply/demand issues. If you want to order your new wrist-bound wearable, you can. It’ll just take until June before you actually see it arrive at your house.

Apple Store is back along with the Apple Watch, new MacBook

Apple Store is back along with the Apple Watch, new MacBook

Well, that was definitely quick. In fact, you could say it was just a wee bit late. The Apple Store is back in business and to the surprise of no one, new products are available for grabs. Sort of. While you can indeed already order the new MacBook, the Apple Watch is a different matter entirely. You can put in an pre-order now if you already know the right configuration you want, or schedule an appointment to try it out. When you will actually get it on your wrists, however, is a different story.

Apple Store is down! Get ready for the Apple Watch

Apple Store is down! Get ready for the Apple Watch

It is like the calm before the storm and has actually become the unofficial indicator that Apple is just about to put out something big. The Apple Store is down, which means something will be up once it's back. In this case, there is no secret. The Apple Watch is almost here and Cupertino is putting the final touches to its online store to be ready. And it better be, as the Apple Watch purchase process will be something quite new, especially for consumers, and Apple best be prepared for the oncoming online onslaught.

Apple Watch may be tough to get (at first), says Apple Store chief

Apple Watch may be tough to get (at first), says Apple Store chief

The Apple Watch is coming tomorrow. Unlike ‘Winter’ in Game of Thrones, we know when Apple Watch is landing. As you may know, getting one might be a bit tough at first, but Apple is putting Store staff through their paces, and have created some interesting new rules to make sure those who are actually interested in buying an Apple Watch can. The onlookers who might try one on still can, but ordering won’t be so simple. Still, Apple is strongly cautioning the Apple Watch you want may not be available for purchase, whether you jump through the right hoops or not.

Lines outside Apple Stores may soon be a thing of the past

Lines outside Apple Stores may soon be a thing of the past

Lines outside of Apple Stores are a strange occurrence. Waiting outside for a phone or computer seems so — well, silly. It started with the first iPhone, and hasn’t stopped. While Apple Stores don’t see overnight lines every time they bring something new to the in-store tables, people do line up. Apple Store chief Angela Ahrendts wants that to stop, apparently. She’s said to have circulated a memo to Apple Store staffers, encouraging them to tell line-squatters to buy online and pick up in store.
