Apple is currently rejecting apps, which in their name use a word-combination “Flappy Bird” or something similar to it. Apart from that, it seems to be impossible to add a game to the App Store, which resembles the recently deleted one.
The Chronicle reports that iWatch will be able to warn its user about a coming heart attack.
In 2011 Tomlinson Holman started working for Apple to "provide audio direction". Tomlinson Holman is a well-known audio engineer. He invented THX and 10.2 surround sound. It seems that Holman was studying blood flow sound in order to predict heart attacks.
It is Sunday today, so you’re probably waiting for our top stories of the week. That is why I won’t make a large introduction and will simply tell you about interesting events of the past seven days.
According to usually reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple won’t release its widely-rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the next-generation iPad mini this year. Instead, the guys from Cupertino will show us an updated iPad Air, equipped with a new Apple A8 processor and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
According to the latest Good Technology report, Apple’s iOS devices dominate in the enterprise market. And this is not strange, I believe, since Google’s Android is rumored to be less secure and reliable.
@somospostpc has published an interesting comparison list of the percentage of screen versus bezel for smartphones.
Bloomnerg reports that Apple has listed Flextronics International Ltd. in the Supplier Responsibility Report. The company has been an assembler of Mac computers since last year.
Flextronics assembled Macs in Austin, Texas, last year, Apple said in its annual supplier report published yesterday. Foxconn Technology Group remains the largest manufacturer of Apple products, with seven assembly locations in China and Brazil, according to the list published on Apple’s website.
A new tweak has recently appeared on Cydia. It is called BlueBoard and it lets you add a blue keyboard to your iPhone or iPad. The tweak is rather simple, so it won’t be difficult for you to install and set it. BlueBoard can be enabled, disabled or customized via Settings menu of your iOS device.
SET Solution has created another iPad concept. This time it’s a 13-inch Apple’s tablet running Mac OS X - not iOS. And this is probably the most interesting thing about this tablet since in terms of design the device resembles iPad Air and iPad mini, which were released at the end of the last year.
As noted by Mary Jo Foley, Microsoft Office for iPad, codenamed 'Miramar', might be released ahead of the version for Windows, codenamed 'Gemini', though previously Steve Ballmer said he wanted the latter one to be launched first.
China's Electrical Engineering Times reports that the coming iWatch will boast optoelectronics to monitor the heart rate and blood oxygen levels of the user.
Apple is said to have chosen the light-based technology over electrocardiography, a more accurate method which measures electrical impulses, due to the former's ability to continuously monitor heart rate with no action from the user. Most ECG-based products require multiple contacts, meaning users must either attach multiple diodes to their body or touch the product with both hands to get a reading.
According to the latest Benedict Evans report, the company from Cupertino sold more Macs and iDevices than Microsoft sold Windows computers during the last holiday quarter. However, if to add the number of Windows Phone devices sold to the comparison, we’ll see that the sales results are nearly equal.

According to the latest report from LEDinside, Apple’s iPhone 6 will become slightly lighter, even though it will boast a larger display. The guys from Cupertino will probably use a new lighter frame for the next-gen handset and thinner LED backlights.
Apple has seeded a pre-release build of OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 to developers for testing. What that means is that the official release of the new OS X version is just around the corner. And that’s great, I believe.
