iPhone and Mac way up, iPad down in Q4 2014

In releasing their quarterly earnings, Apple also made available their device sales figures. As you might have guessed, iPhone sales were up over last quarter on the heels of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. They were also up over last year, showing a solid trajectory. The rest of Apple’s product lineup did equally well as a whole, but iPad sales continue to slide. That trend may only continue in the face of the iPhone 6 Plus, which will naturally eat at iPad mini sales.

It might be time to kiss the iPod goodbye

It might be time to kiss the iPod goodbye

Apple’s latest event is happening next week, and we’re all fairly certain what we’re getting. New iPads are likely on the horizon, and we’re expecting something in the way of Mac and iMac to come as well. Though we’re not expecting apple to unleash that massive iPad Pro we’ve been hearing about just yet, there’s good reason to think another of their products is falling by the wayside yet again. If we’re being totally honest, there might be good reason for it to slip quietly away, too.

No, U2, your Apple album release wasn’t “punk rock”

No, U2, your Apple album release wasn’t “punk rock”

In an interview set to be published in full in Time Magazine on the 29th of this month, Bono and U2 have spoken up on the "punk rock" nature of their deal with Apple. He suggests that Apple’s relationship with U2 is like "the Medicis’ patronage of Michelangelo." The full interview also includes the rest of the band: The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr.

Apple Beats buy final: compared to birth of iPhone

It would appear that Apple’s acquisition of Beats by Dre, aka Beats Electronics, aka Beats Music, has been finalized. With it comes a message from Beats, likely written by a top wordsmith from Apple. It sounds that way, anyway, bringing on words that deem Beats headphones worthy of sitting alongside the iPod, iPad, and iPhone as Apple’s key "instruments."

This app will clean you out — but that’s a good thing

This app will clean you out — but that’s a good thing

If you’re like — well, anyone — you’ve got a lot of stuff lying around the house you’re not using. The thought of getting rid of it has crossed your mind, but the exercise of listing on Craigslist (and the subsequent lowball offers) is exhausting. A new app, which is rolling out in Austin and San Francisco ahead of other markets, can take care of all the leg work for you.

iPod Touch gets slight upgrade, price drop

iPod Touch gets slight upgrade, price drop

If you thought the iPod Touch was dying, think again. Apple has released a slightly updated version, at least for one model. The 16GB variant now has all the things the 32GB and 64GB models have. Apple also lowered the price a bit, enticing us to want one even more.

The iWatch coming to destroy your iPod

The iWatch coming to destroy your iPod

Supposing there really is an iWatch headed your way via Apple, there’s a good chance the device will take out a big chunk of Apple’s focus on the iPod. Brian Blair of Rosenblatt Securities suggests that the complete absence of a 2013 refresh of the iPod line suggests Apple is bringing in a new force to supplant it. I believe that Apple’s age of the wireless music player will take shape in the form of the iWatch, either holding the music itself or bouncing the music to one’s car stereo (smart stereo, that is) from the iPhone.
