Have your eye on one of those speedy new fourth-generation iPads but figured there was no hurry because Apple made plenty of them? Think again, buddy -- Cupertino's online store now shows all Wi-Fi models out of stock.
The Apple Store is down and the calendar reads October 23, 2012, so that can mean only one thing: It's time for an Apple media event and new stuff! While the focus remains on the iPad mini, it appears Cupertino will also be introducing several new Lightning adapters today as well.
On the heels of Monday's report about Lightning to 30-pin Adapters beginning to ship to early customers, it now appears that Apple is also starting to ship preorders for the fifth-generation iPod touch as well.
What sells out even faster than the new iPhone 5? Apparently, the new Lightning dock connector adapters, which are now showing a two-to-three week shipping delay as Apple confirms that new handset owners won't be getting a freebie.
Hope you set the alarm clock and got your iPhone 5 preorder in early if you're hoping to have FedEx or UPS bring it straight to your door, because the shipping estimates from Apple's website have already slipped to two weeks.
With the rumor mill in high gear about a new iPhone announcement now less than a month away, it seems like odd timing for Apple to push out a new bumper color for the existing iPhone 4/4S, but at least this one is for a good cause.
August is here and so far it's been a crazy ride this week, with plenty of updates for our favorite gadgets as we start to wind down our summer. Of course, the rumor mill continues to barf up speculation on the next iPhone and the mythical "iPad mini" and now AT&T is being accused of having salesmen discourage customers from buying Apple's handset. So let's get past this hump day with a handful of other news for this wonderful Wednesday, August 1, 2012!
If you're the type who wants to be notified of every change in the status of your online orders, Apple has introduced just such a service for U.S. customers, which sends a text message when your order status changes.
It's been just over a month since Apple blessed us with some sweet, sweet Retina Display love on its new 15-inch MacBook Pro, during which time the online shipping estimates slipped to as long as four weeks. That situation is finally improving, but only by a little.
In a WWDC keynote address packed with new MacBooks and previews of both OS X Mountain Lion and iOS 6, Apple had little time to talk about a refresh to its $99 AirPort Express, which is now available for sale.
