Our first full week of the new year has come to an end, and we've decided to round it off with a breakdown of all the best Apple-related goodies on display at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. (Be sure to check out the knockoff Apple Watch.) In addition, North Korea's Mac OS X clone finally leaked onto torrent sites, and it looks like Apple Pay could come to Canada soon.
In today's Apple Daily, we get a look of what sorta-possibly may be some kind of mold for the rumored 12-inch "iPad Pro" as well as a look at a new hire that could mean great things for Apple's recent ventures into enterprise. In addition, be sure to check out what Apple's doing to express its support for the victims of the Charlie Hebdo tragedy in France.
If you're still worried about how the Apple Watch will function once it's actually on your wrist but you want to be a day-one buyer, never fear: the development team who made the iOS app Pipes has made an online demo that shows how it works in practice. Elsewhere, adoption of iOS 8 continues to climb across all compatible devices, and the success of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is pushing up Apple's smartphone market share almost everywhere.
It's hard to deny that the biggest Apple news of early 2015 is the impending launch of the Apple Watch, and guess what? There's a new rumor out there that claims to have narrowed down the release window of the highly anticipated timepiece. But that's not all — surprising new details appear to have emerged on the alleged 12-inch MacBook Air, plus there's more news on who's playing who in the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic.
A new year is here, but you'll have to wait a little while longer if you want to learn just how much Apple raked in while shoppers were filling their stockings with iPhones and MacBooks — January 27, to be exact. For now, though, we've got some good news about SIM-free iPhones and Apple's HomeKit in our first Apple Daily news roundup for 2015.
It's been almost half a year since we've checked in on the progress of Apple's new "spaceship" campus, and a new video created by the folks over at AppleInsider shows that it's going up quickly. Captured with a DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus drone, the footage reveals that most of the major buildings on the campus are already taking shape.
Apple CEO Tim Cook may not have won TIME's Person of the Year award, but he continues to win the hearts of editors of purely economic publications. The latest is CNN Money, where Cook just won the award for CEO of the Year over other worthies such as BlackBerry's John Chen, GM's Mara Barra, and T-Mobile’s John Legere.
We're sad, too: It's our last Morning Report for 2014, but our Tuesday edition has the details on how much Russians will now pay for an iPhone 6 after the value of the ruble sagged last week, a patent filing for "Works with Apple CarPlay," and a new strategy for Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 hits the web. Click ahead, then go enjoy the holidays!
There's a new "critical security issue" out there affecting the Network Time Protocol service on OS X, but Apple already has a patch ready for you to install. The Cupertino company is asking that anyone who's running Yosemite, Mavericks, and Mountain Lion download the update "as soon as possible." And you should. After all, it's just a little tiny thing.
Happen to miss the great pop culture moments of 2014? Never fear; Apple's got you covered. The catch here is that its social media department's chosen to do so on Tumblr, where the company's created a page for iTunes celebrating the "best" from this year's music, TV, and books. It's but the latest move in Apple's increasing forays into the most popular outlets in social media.
