If you happened to shop for a new iPad at a Target store over the last three weeks, you may want to check your credit card statements -- the retailer has just confirmed nearly 40 million credit and debit cards may be part of a new security breach.
And so the holiday season is upon full force. Well good. We've got good news for Apple, as usual, good news for those of you waiting for your iPhone 5S, some sweet games and some sweeter deals, and free music -- who doesn't love free music? Plus, let's all enjoy a good laugh at Android OS adoption rates as shown above. They're hilarious. All that and more, just step inside.
One of the biggest bits of Apple-related news was how well the iPad Air sold over Black Friday weekend, and now new data from Localytics (via Macgasm) supports the reports coming in from retailers. Based on the firm's findings, the iPad Air saw a 51 percent increase in the activation of iPad Airs over the weekend compared to the previous week.
While most people spend Thanksgiving thinking about the things in their life that they're grateful for, some see it simply as the pre-game before the real holiday: Black Friday. Those who are willing to brave the early morning haze and long lines — warmed by the still-digesting feast in their stomachs — are rewarded with the chance to save (and spend) tons of money at stores of all sorts. But you can't go out unprepared into the shopping wilderness that is Black Friday. Arm yourself with your iOS device and let these eight apps be the compass that guides you happily to ultimate savings.
On the off chance that you were doubting that Apple would have a Black Friday event this year, it looks as though your doubts were for naught. As reported by MacRumors, a teaser page popped up on the online Apple Store for Australia, promising a one-day shopping event on November Friday, 29. With that in place, it seems as though it's only a matter of hours before we see a similar announcement for the United States.
We noted earlier this week that Apple Stores would be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States partly out of Tim Cook's desire that Apple be "a force for good," but as MacRumors reports, that isn't stopping the tech giant from opening early for Black Friday sales.
If you're planning to skip the iPad Air tomorrow in favor of a swanky new iPad mini with Retina Display sometime later in November, one retailer thinks they may know when Apple will actually release it.
If you're reading this, you've successfully managed to survive the Thanksgiving weekend as well as Black Friday, so Happy Cyber Monday! Now you can stay at home in your jammies and soak in the bargains online, and if recent IBM data is correct, many of you will be doing it from the comfort of your iPad. Didn't hear about that? Then read on to find out all about it...
