Ever get locked out of your own iOS device? Famed SIM unlocker ChronicUnlocks is now offering the "first and only fully working and legitimate service" for removing Apple's iCloud Lock from any iPad or iPhone 4 or higher within one to 15 business days for only $149.99.

eBay auctions can be exciting, but it's not quite as entertaining as having an auctioneer overseeing the whole process. Re/code reported Monday that eBay members will soon be able to join in the fun by way of livestreamed Sotheby's auctions for "fine art and other high-end collectables" — but you'll need deep wallets, because prices range from $5,000, all the way up to $100,000. Heck, for that kind of money, you could instead bid on a charity auction with an Apple SVP, and we've got one such offer in today's recap....

Remember not so long ago when the rumor mill claimed Apple wouldn't be unleashing a phablet-sized, 5.5-inch iPhone 6 this year due to supply chain problems? Turns out assumption may have been the correct one after all.
Developers received a pleasant surprise last Friday as Apple launched a blog dedicated to its new Swift programming language for iOS and OS X.
