Apple product owners should start expecting to see a lot more Beats Music in the months ahead, now that Cupertino has officially taken the reins of the streaming music service. One such integration has already appeared within an app update for one of Apple's forthcoming partners, and we've got that story — as well as a pair of updates from the iPhone maker's assembly line — in today's Morning Report.
We're seeing more and more mockups and leak videos with each iteration of the iPhone and now we've got video of the 6. Or so they say. Who knows until the veil is lifted come September? But we do know one thing for certain, there are factories, known Apple partners, who are on hiring binges right now…
Now here's one of those reports that won't exactly come as a surprise: It's late June and Apple suppliers in mainland China are said to be recruiting new hires to assemble Cupertino's latest smartphone.
Is the iPhone 5c living up to Apple's expectations? Outside of its Cupertino headquarters, that's anyone's guess, but a new report claims the company is cutting back on fourth quarter orders for the handsets.

In the meantime, here's a quick recap of some other stories you might have missed...

On Monday, Apple announced that the Fair Labor Association will begin conducting voluntary inspections of the company’s suppliers in China, specifically noting Foxconn as one of them. The news comes as a surprise to Apple supplier Pegatron, however, who claims they haven’t been informed of any such inspections.
How about that Apple Inc.! Today marked the fateful day when the company’s stock price soared above the $500 per share mark, so there was likely a cascading fountain or champagne in ol’ Cupertino today. Definitely a nice early Valentine for Apple, but the week is young and there’s plenty more excitement to come, we’re sure.

We hope you’re not too sick of iPhone 5 rumors, because here comes another one! The unannounced handset seems to be all anyone wants to talk about right now, with even the otherwise lackluster news that the handset is now being manufactured starting to make headlines.
