The tech giant will shut down Beats Music on November 30, according to a document published Thursday. All Beats subscriptions will be canceled on that day, but Apple is encouraging subscribers to migrate their user profiles to Apple Music, the music subscription service it launched in June.
The iPad Pro will roll out quickly to a wide number of countries around the world starting with online pre-orders Wednesday, November 11 in four dozen regions. Apple Stores, carriers and select retailers will have the large tablet available two days later. The tablet has a 12.9-inch Retina Display, four audio speakers, and supports the new $99 Apple Pencil for drawing applications. Apple will also sell the $169 Smart Keyboard that doubles as a protective cover and stand for the 1.57 pound tablet.
Apple has identified 25 apps on its stores that had used a rogue version of its Xcode development tool, and advised users to update the affected apps to fix the issue on their devices.
Figuring in the list are the WeChat app from Tencent and the Didi ride-hailing app, which had been identified earlier as affected. Other apps included in the list released by Apple on its China website include local chatting tool Encounter, the app for Baidu Music and China Unicorn's customer service app.
After months in beta, iOS 9 hits iPhones and iPads today! Hurrah! Want to be the master of all things iOS 9? Techcrunch have compiled a list of some of the neat but not-so-obvious features, many of which are tucked away enough that you might not otherwise stumble upon them on your own. You need to find a toggle hiding away in Apple’s settings menu. You know it exists - you’ve seen it before. Now… where the hell was it?
Apple appeared to leak the ship date of its latest Mac OS X desktop software, dubbed El Capitan, during a launch event in San Francisco on Wednesday. Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, was on stage showing off new features of the iPhone 6S smartphone. During the demonstration, he opened a personal email from Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of marketing, with the subject line "El Capitan status."
Meet the iPad Pro, Apple’s latest and greatest tablet. Apple introduced the long-rumored device at its fall event. As expected, it has a huge 12.9-inch display and a few neat features that make it stand out from the rest of the lineup. Apple CEO Tim Cook called it “the biggest news for the iPad since the iPad.” With the iPad Pro, you can now run two side-by-side iPad Air apps. The iPad Pro isn’t for everyone — hence the name. But for those who already love their iPads and use it every day, this is a dream come true.
Apple has unveiled the latest generation of the iPhone in the form of the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. Rumors have been swirling for the past few months, with suggestions that Apple would integrate a Force Touch Display, update the devices’ cameras, and use a more powerful processor. But the moment of truth has finally arrived, so let’s get to it. As can be expected from an ‘s’ year, the next-generation iPhones don’t look all that different from last year’s models. However, the innards have been significantly tweaked.
A redesign of Apple.com that went live today removed the standalone ‘Store’ tab, and the ‘store.apple.com’ domain entirely. This is an enormous change for one of the biggest online retail stores in the world. The buying experience is now woven into the site as a whole, with purchasing buttons and options for products available on every product page. Instead of browsing for information about a product and then having to make the ‘jump’ over to the store side, customers will now take care of both actions at once.
With iOS 8.3 out the door, it was inevitable that Apple would launch iOS 8.4 in developer preview – and now it’s here. The pre-release software ships with a new version of Apple’s native iOS Music app, complete with a brand new design and a reworked version of iTunes radio. The release notes for the new version of the beta, as noted by 9to5Mac, describe some of the changes, including the ability to customize playlists with images from your library, and a new Artists view that features imagery of musicians while browsing. Using the Albums view now also enables playback of entire records with a single tap, instead of exposing a track list.
Apple has the chance on Thursday to provide a few compelling reasons for consumers to upgrade or buy a new iPad. Apple's second event in as many months won't have the flash from the previous affair, which saw the debut of two larger iPhones and a glimpse at the Apple Watch. Instead, the company is expected to show off a new iPad (or two), unveil new Macs and talk more about its OS X Yosemite operating system for its desktop. The presentation, which kicks off at 10 a.m. PT, is a lower key affair held at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, Calif.
