Apple loves milestones, but Cupertino appears to be sitting out its latest accomplishment as the App Store is now home to more than a million apps -- although it's not actually the first time that's happened.
To the surprise of virtually no one, Android and iOS dominated almost all of the smartphones shipped in the first quarter of this year, but the real surprise came with the two companies duking it out for third place.
Hard to believe we're already rolling into the middle of May, which means summer is just around the corner! Apple is going to make it a more secure season for its Apple ID users with two-step verification now going worldwide, while a new study finds that there's an awful lot of us averse to turning off our gadgets when it comes time to fly. Think about that before you step onto your next plane to head out on vacation, folks...
While Apple's share of the tablet market has dropped in recent months, there seems to be little for Cupertino to worry about -- the iPad is still the king with nearly 50 percent of the market, with Samsung a distant second.
China isn't the only country getting the iPhone 5 this month -- Apple has just announced the handset will debut in South Korea and a dizzying list of other worldwide destinations over the next two weeks.
Right on cue, Apple today released the new iPad, which again attracted throngs of buyers -- not to mention the media looking to document the experience -- in all 10 of the countries where it launched today.
One thing U.S. customers often take for granted is the ability to head to websites like Apple.com and order products with a few clicks. Today, four more countries will now be enjoying such a convenience, as United Arab Emirates, Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland light up their own Apple Online Stores at long last.
Fans of British television have been waiting with bated breath for the BBC iPlayer app to cross the pond almost as long as the United States had been waiting for the arrival of Spotify. The iPad app isn’t washing ashore here just yet, but in an encouraging sign, it finally went global in 11 other Western European countries this week.
As inexpensive as the iPhone has become over the last four years -- with last year’s iPhone 3GS going for as little as $49 new with a two-year AT&T contract -- many are still holding out hope for a prepaid model. According to one analyst, their prayers may be answered when Apple rolls out the new model this fall.
