All non-company stores will be restricted from offering any two-year contracts in the traditional format with an up-front down payment, though AT&T company stores and its own online site will continue to offer contracts. Instead, retailers will have to offer the AT&T Next option, where buyers pay the cost of the phone alongside the monthly service plan fees.

Apple Watch: US sales figures; heart rate flaw in 1.0.1 update?

05/22, 12:40pm

Sales at 2.5 million units, estimated sales of 30,000 per day, says Slice Intelligence

Figures extrapolated from some 14,000 online shoppers who use Slice Intelligence's services suggests that the Apple Watch is selling approximately 30,000 units a day, following an unsurprising initial rush of over 2.5 million pre-orders. While some analysts will inevitably portray this as a slump, the drop-off is typical of new products, and puts the Apple Watch on pace to have outsold all existing smartwatches on its first day or two of pre-ordering, and outselling the early days of the iPhone and iPad.

Promotional photo may be leak of Touch ID-equipped iPhone 5c

05/21, 9:44am

Accidental image could be Photoshop error, or hint at wider Apple Pay rollout

Among the promotional photos released in connection with the new Apple Lightning Dock designed for the iPhone 6 line (but which also works with the older iPhone 5 family) is an image that appears to show an iPhone 5c equipped with a Touch ID sensor rather than the normal home button. While the image could be a simple Photoshop gaffe, it raises the possibility that Apple might refit and freshen the iPhone 5c to be able to handle Apple Pay as part of a larger, multi-country rollout of the mobile payments service.

Now we seem more open to persuasion, or at least to considering alternatives, and for some people Postbox 4 is going to be so ideal they'll wish they bought it two versions ago.

OWC tears down new Retina iMac, few substantive differences found

New model seemingly intended to expand line, lower prices

Accessory purveyor OWC has unboxed and torn down the new 2015 Retina iMac. In a blog post, the company has noted that the new model has retained the 2-lane PCI-e SSD upgrade slot "whether ordered with a SSD or not," can take 32GB of RAM.

The End of an Error: Munster gives up dream of Apple HDTV

05/19, 1:36pm

Years-long erroneous assumption illustrates double-edged sword of rumor reporting

There's no question that news sites often lean on the rumor mill as the basis for stories (though we are careful to note that rumors are exactly that -- rumors). Sometimes the speculation is fearless, sometimes it amounts to nothing more than an educated guess. Sometimes -- less often than you'd think -- rumors turn out to be true, but we've found that only the ones closest to the actual product release have much veracity. We've turned away from heavy rumor reporting lately -- but they're always in our feeds, or in the MacNN email box. There's a certain cycle to rumors that we've seen, generally from "analysts" with no better sources than we have -- and here's why we don't always report on them.

The $39 accessory works with both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 as well as the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, and thus features a new design that features a raised Lightning connector, making the unit able to work with other Lightning-equipped iPhones, and without having to remove most third-party iPhone cases.

Apple has again updated its list of Apple Pay partners by adding another 30 credit unions and banks, and is continuing to focus more lately on credit unions in the latest additions as it has done with recent updates.

A US Court of Appeals has "split the baby" in a decision that preserves Apple's victory against Samsung in its first patent-infringement trial, but will also result in a likely significant reduction of damages due from the Korean company.

While the Apple Watch contains a number of security features designed to protect users' data in the event of theft or misplacement, it lacks an "Activation Lock" type feature as seen on the iPhone (and more recently, other smartphones), which makes the device more attractive to thieves, according to a new report.

It is gorgeous and handy but there is a whole Calendar app on Apple Watch and that's not as completely, entirely, totally wonderful. It's limited as you might imagine but the problem is that it doesn't do things quite the way you expect. Here's how it does what it does – and how to get the most out of it.
