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.
If you're in the market for a new 27-inch iMac with a gorgeous new Retina Display, we may have some good news for you, courtesy of one analyst with a pretty good track record for such predictions. Our Wednesday Morning Report also includes an apology from U2 frontman Bono for pushing that free album on iTunes users, as well as a peek at a new Mac app for Instagram. Click, read, and enjoy!
Apple's exclusivity deal for the U2 Songs of Innocence album released during last month's iPhone event has almost run its course, and on the eve of its expiration, Apple executive Eddie Cue has some numbers regarding how well the promotion fared. Most notably, 26 million iTunes users downloaded the full album following its launch on September 9.
It was release week and that means we've got a round up of stories that are all about two things: new iPhones and new iOS. So let's not waste any more time. If you want a quick rundown of the who, what, where, and when, this is the tasty place to be.
Apple generously coughed up a reported $100 million to deliver the latest U2 album free to more than 500 million iTunes customers, but over the last week an increasing number of music fans have whined on social media about getting a raw deal.
Call it the call before the storm: With iOS 8 inbound on Wednesday and the new iPhone 6 models touching down in stores Friday, it's going to be a long week for many readers. So why not kick up your feet and check out the latest Samsung attack on Apple, soak up rumors of a 5K Mac monitor, and check in on how Apple's gift of U2 is doing? It's all here in today's Morning Report.
Despite their claims to the contrary in the preceding weeks, world-renowned rock band U2 performed at today's Apple event after all. But it wasn't just a entertainment gimmick. Apple CEO Tim Cook joined U2 frontman Bono on stage to announce that every user of iTunes gets the band's latest album "Songs of Innocence" entirely for free today.
After months of speculation, September 9 is finally here, and that means Apple executives will take the stage later today to announce the latest and greatest from Cupertino. The live streamed event can be viewed on Apple TV, and we've rounded up the latest rumors of a U2 connection as well as a bombastic ABC News promo about the event for today's Morning Report.
Each year, the fervor surrounding the latest iPhone seems to increase to a fever pitch. This year, shoppers are lining up even before Apple announces a new model, not to mention the fabled iWatch, which many believe will be Cupertino's curveball. Thursday's Morning Report takes a new look at that device as well as rumors of U2's involvement in next week's festivities, so click ahead for the details...
Now here's one of those no-brainer kind of deals: Until midnight tonight, music fans can download U2's latest single absolutely free, and one of the nation's largest banks will donate a dollar to Product (RED).
