Our Tuesday Morning Report has some good news for Americans in big cities still in search of an iPhone 6: Apple has officially announced a release in China, which should help alleviate the number of devices being purchased here and sent to the mainland for resale at a hefty profit. There's also news about the next three iOS 8 updates, and Parisians get the first public look at the forthcoming Apple Watch — so don't waste a moment, dive right in!
We've heard a lot about the new iPhones and the upcoming iWatch over the last couple of weeks, but today it's time for the iMac to shine. Specifically, Apple reportedly plans to release a 27-inch Retina iMac with a resolution of 5120 x 2880, and it's possible that we'll see it as early as a media event next month.
We're back with another round of apps ready for iOS 8, including several new entries as well as updated titles that have been improved to make the most of Apple's new mobile operating system. This time includes a couple of camera extensions, a more robust alternative to Google Authenticator, a pair of iCloud Drive-friendly Readdle updates, and lots of manual camera tweaks made possible by iOS 8. Eight (technically nine!) of the best and brightest are just a click away!
The debate over the flexibility of Apple's new iPhone 6 models hasn't quite died down just yet, with Consumer Reports seemingly hoping to become the last word on the subject. Our Monday Morning Report also takes a look at Microsoft's first New York flagship store only a stone's throw from a rival, while AT&T gets generous with Mobile Share Value data for your new iPhone or iPad. Read on for all the details!

The biggest news of the week was iPhones bending and iOS 8.0.1 being some kinda broken. But were the problems overblown or were they real? And if they were real, what's the fix? What other newness happened this week? Let's have a look.
For the first time with iOS 8, Apple is letting users replace the system-wide keyboard with third-party alternatives. Most people will be perfectly happy with the standard option, which is better than ever thanks to the time-saving new predictive-text feature. But if you'd like to take a walk on the wild side, we’ve collected six keyboards that each offer something Apple doesn’t, from unique typing methods to animated GIF libraries. Let’s go keyboard crazy!
Over the last couple of days you may have heard of the looming danger of "Shellshock" to Mac users. This new tech scare centers on Bash, a behind-the-scenes tool that's been used for many years now on Unix- and Linux-powered machines. Essentially, the root of the problem is an exploit that allows outside users to run code on your machine without your consent, and it could thus has devastating consequences if tackled by unscrupulous individuals. But the good news is that even though OS X runs on Unix, Apple itself says the bulk of us don't have to worry about it.
HealthKit is easily one of the best selling points of iOS 8, but Apple fizzled some of that enthusiasm when it pulled HealthKit-enabled apps from its store not long after the operating system was loosed on the public. Apple did, however, claim that such apps would be available again "by the end of the month," and it looks as though it's lived up to that promise.
It's an across the board special this week. Games? We got it. Learning? Got it. Cute stuff for the kids. Done. Exercise? Productivity? Music making? Yes, yes, and oh my yes, a biggie on that last one. Well, then, let's get right to it.

Between bending phones, iOS 8.0.1, and the Bash security flaw on OS X, Apple seems to be taking it on the chin from nearly every front — but that isn't stopping Cupertino from keeping its eye on the prize, with the iPhone 6 going on sale today as scheduled in 22 more locales. Our Friday Morning Report also looks at iOS 8.0.2 and a new home automation solution from Loxone, so let's dive right in...
Asphalt Overdrive and FIFA 15: Ultimate Team provide a pair of heavy hitters this week, but we’re just as intrigued by lesser-known fare like deceitful online dueler Smarter Than You, colorful route-drawing puzzler RGB Express, and music-fueled shooter Cosmophony. Be sure to check out the latest and greatest in new iOS games, and then pop back next week for another batch.
