It has just announced the availability of a variant of its Touch fitness tracker, one that still boasts of heart rate monitoring while coming with a lower price tag.

Apple continues with TomTom maps after contract renewal

Dutch mapping and navigation firm TomTom has announced its continued partnership with Apple, as the two companies have agreed to renew their contract. TomTom has become very valuable to Apple and their iOS devices since 2012, when the Cupertino company launched its own maps application, ending a reliance on Google and their data.
