Want to get a head start on Black Friday deals? Consider this, the original Infinity Blade, which quickly became one of the most impressive and successful action games for iOS, is now available for free.

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.

Back in July I wrote about a controversial piece of tech used by Nordstrom that tracked the movements of customers throughout its stores to help management make decisions about product placements. At the time, it seemed like something of a scandal. But now, as AppleInsider reports, Apple has launched its own pilot version of the program called 'iBeacon," which follows you throughout a store and shows you deals around you.
It seems like every update to the Apple Store app has been met with the same disappointment: "No native iPad support." While that's still true, Apple has at least finally delivered shoppers a separate app, just for the iPad.
If you've been bothered by the few remaining iOS 7 apps that seem untouched by Jony Ive's new minimalist design, most of your worries are over. With today's update, Find My Friends now features the clean look of, well, almost every other app on iOS 7. Gone is the skeuomorphic leather stitching; in its place are wide fields of white space.
The big news about the iPad this year largely centered on the sleek iPad Air, but according to The Korea Times (via Cult of Mac), Apple's thinking big as well. How big?
