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

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.

iTunes ‘rent once, watch anywhere’ removes device shackle

iTunes ‘rent once, watch anywhere’ removes device shackle

iTunes has long offered digital movie rentals, and those digital movie rentals have historically been more or less shackled to the device from which it was rented or, in some cases, required syncing between devices. That changes with iTunes 12.6, an updated version that is bringing a so-called 'rent once, watch anywhere' functionality that removes the limitations. This functionality assumes the user is running the latest versions of iOS and tvOS, however.
