BlackBerry wasn't the only company yanking software over the weekend: The Apple TV 6.0 update released last Friday was apparently causing bricked devices, but it's back now and… well, same as ever, aside from the bricking.
If you thought last year's iPhone 5 launch was spectacular with five million units sold, apparently splitting the product line into two new models is capable of nearly doubling that amount in a single weekend.
It doesn't take an Apple Store Genius to figure out that kids love iOS devices (and the iPad in particular), which makes it a bit puzzling why it's taken Cupertino so long to create a section just for them.
Have you heard the news? Apple is doomed because the iPhone 5c isn't low priced enough… or is it because they didn't announce preorder numbers for the first weekend? No matter, Apple executives just shrug and move on, apparently.
Unless you've been living in a cave somewhere, you're probably aware that Apple will release iOS 7 sometime today -- but you can already get a sneak peek at what it will be like to use by visiting iCloud.com.
Apple issued a press release to remind the world that there are new iPhones arriving this Friday, while the latest flagship iPhone 5s appears to have sold out almost immediately after preorders launch early in China.
Is the iPhone 5c selling as well as Apple might have hoped? After the first weekend of online preorders, the company's online store still has ample stock of the contract models which show Sept. 20, while the unlocked models vary depending upon color and capacity, with some variations slipping to a Sept. 25 ship date. And then there's Apple's complete silence, which is making investors nervous once again...
It may be an unlucky day according to the calendar, but those waiting anxiously to get their hands on one of the new iPhone 5c smartphones can now at least virtually slap down their credit card and preorder one now.
Do you use a passcode on your iPhone? Apple marketing boss Phil Schiller thinks you should, and even has a new feature on the iPhone 5S that will let you make iTunes purchases with the touch of a finger.
