Apple will begin selling some models of the Apple Watch starting in two weeks, according to a press release from the company today. Also, on June 26, we’ll see Watches go on sale in seven more countries, including Italy, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and Taiwan.
All orders for Apple Watch which were placed in May will ship to customers within the next two weeks, too – except for the 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel model, which has so far been the slowest to reach pre-order customers.
Apple today announced a voluntary recall of all Beats Pill XL speakers due to the rare possibility that the battery in the speakers may overheat and pose a fire safety risk. Apple advises all customers to stop using the Beats Pill XL speakers and will issue a $325 refund or Apple Store credit to affected customers. The recall does not extend to other Apple or Beats products.
Apple has added a new support document on its website that confirms the third-generation Apple TV or later can be used to control HomeKit-enabled accessories when you are away from home using an iOS device.
Sumoing, the company behind Camo and Repix, has released a new app called Relook, which is designed to enhance whatever native beauty subjects might possess. Its non-destructive retouching technology is engineered to diminish the appearance of pores, wrinkles, oil and highlights while at the same time preserving a natural look to skin tones. And of course, it’s not just for selfies.
It lets you scan your iMessages for photos and movies, and then download them to keep them along with the rest of your photos.
The new streaming service, simply called Showtime, will launch on July 12, coinciding with season premieres of Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex. It'll cost $11 per month, with full access to Showtime's catalog of TV shows, movies, documentaries, specials, and sports programming. It also includes access to Showtime's live TV feed on either the east coast or the west coast.
Pebble recently began sending very happy emails: It was telling backers of its Kickstarter campaign for the new Pebble Time smartwatch that their watches are on the way. But then Pebble dropped a bomb: The iOS software necessary to set up and use the Pebble Time watch with an iPhone is “still in review” at Apple. And it’s been “in review” for 43 days, says Pebble.
If Apple truly cares about our privacy then it should stop talking about how important it is and start building superior cloud-based services we want to use — then it can protect us.
I am wondering if I can blame discoveryd for my MacBook not detecting my Magic Mouse this morning.
Speaking of mouse, I do wish Apple will come out with a wired-version of the Magic Mouse. The bluetooth connection between my Mac and the Magic Mouse is often flacky and unreliable.
Of course, given that the latest MacBook has only one USB-C port, I don't think I should be holding out any hope for a wired Magic Mouse.
