If you want to know more about the iPhone 6 and iWatch, you're in luck — it seems that a day can't go by without more rumors about Apple's upcoming hardware. But that's not all that's been happening this week — there's also been loads of other news, including a new look at Apple HQ, info on vastly improved battery life, and some great tips to deal with spam and Time Machine.

Get ready for a tougher iPhone. Word came in today via 9to5Mac that Apple's partner GT Advanced had received equipment for sapphire glass manufacturing and testing at its new plant in Arizona, and the whole setup is allegedly capable of putting out between 100 to 200 million 5-inch iPhone displays per year.
