All those who ordered a redesigned Mac Pro, won’t receive it until April. The company from Cupertino has changed the shipping estimates for its new desktop for the second time in two months. Not only in the USA, but in the entire world. This means Apple hasn’t yet produced enough computers to deliver them to customers in March, as was expected earlier.
Low power alerts can be very annoying. Especially when you play a game or browse through the Internet and all of a sudden a popup appears that informs your iPhone is going to die soon. I hate such moments.

As noted by several sources, Apple’s long-anticipated iWatch will be a peripheral device. What that means is that it will probably require iPhone connection in order to be fully functional.
