Not only did the Mac Mini make it back in our line up last week, but it continues to be here and in a variety of configurations. These little marvels are super popular in the refurb market and we've got plenty more that'll fit the bill for just about any budget. Plus we've got some cases and some Bluetooth accessories that'll go easy on your wallet.
Thanks to some clever work from a developer who combed through the iOS 8.2 beta files, we now have some more information on what we can expect from the Apple Watch and how it will interact with our iPhones. In addition, Apple has apparently stopped offering its free "Single of the Week" on iTunes and it's found a way to discourage abusers of the EU's 14-day refund policy.
CES is now behind us, but news associated with the show is still rolling in, such as how we'll need to own an Apple TV if we expect to use Siri to interact with HomeKit-compatible devices remotely. Elsewhere, we learn about some smuggling antics in China and Xiaomi's struggles with copycatting, as well as Apple's rankings on Flickr and new support for the Apple Watch in the iOS 8.2 beta.
2015 has barely started, but it's already chock full of interesting Apple happenings, including new reports of an ultrathin 12-inch MacBook Air and the long-rumored "iPad Pro." We've also celebrated a big anniversary, plus there's a new way to preview Apple Watch, as well as a roundup of this week's Apple-related CES news!
Our first full week of the new year has come to an end, and we've decided to round it off with a breakdown of all the best Apple-related goodies on display at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. (Be sure to check out the knockoff Apple Watch.) In addition, North Korea's Mac OS X clone finally leaked onto torrent sites, and it looks like Apple Pay could come to Canada soon.
Just eight short years ago today, Steve Jobs unveiled the original iPhone and changed the world. Whether you've seen the famous on-stage reveal a hundred times or not at all, watch the video now and relive arguably the biggest moment in Apple history.
Well 2015 is fully upon us now and some old favorites are back in the refurb shop, plus an old favorite all spiffed up in its newest incarnation, but you've got to move quick. We've got nothing in the deals column this week that's any older than 2014, so these are some of the newest used machines you can get your hands on and they're all Apple checked, cleaned, and approved, so let's get going.
If you're still worried about how the Apple Watch will function once it's actually on your wrist but you want to be a day-one buyer, never fear: the development team who made the iOS app Pipes has made an online demo that shows how it works in practice. Elsewhere, adoption of iOS 8 continues to climb across all compatible devices, and the success of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is pushing up Apple's smartphone market share almost everywhere.
A new year is here, but you'll have to wait a little while longer if you want to learn just how much Apple raked in while shoppers were filling their stockings with iPhones and MacBooks — January 27, to be exact. For now, though, we've got some good news about SIM-free iPhones and Apple's HomeKit in our first Apple Daily news roundup for 2015.
So, the Apple refurb market is still recovering from holiday shoppers, so we thought we'd switch things up a little this week, and instead of finding you the newest models on the market, we thought we'd dip back into the older models where the savings really start to get out there. So if you're looking for a secondary machine or money's particularly tight but need is particularly high, we've got some youngish models that still have what it takes.
