There are hundreds, no, thousands of movies available almost literally at our fingertips, on smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and more.

Downgrade to iTunes 12.6.3 if you want app support back

Downgrade to iTunes 12.6.3 if you want app support back

iTunes 12.7 consolidated Apple's narrative for what the iTunes desktop program is really supposed to be. Instead of a free for all syncing program between a Mac or PC and iOS device, it laser focuses on only the parts that have to do with entertainment and multimedia, like music, videos, and podcasts. As such, iTunes 12.7 threw out support for managing apps and many users were up in arms about it. Fortunately, Apple has silently made available a 12.6.3 version of iTunes with that feature, but there are a few caveats to be mindful of.

iTunes 12.7 tosses the App Store out the window

It’s a flurry of announcements coming out of Cupertino but some are not as welcome as others. Apple has announced, silently or otherwise, the updates that will be coming to its software and platforms.

Apple Music Festival in London is no more

Apple Music Festival in London is no more

Some good things never last. In fact, it is perhaps a testament to Apple’s industry clout and marketing that this annual event lasted this long. But, alas, all good things must come to an end and the Apple Music Festival, the annual, often month-long event held at London, has been retired after 10 years of celebrating music, both local and international. But while this year might not see one grand music event, Apple is trying to make up for it with smaller, shorter events. And TV shows, of course.
