Apple Released 'Apple Watch' in 1995? [Video]





You probably think that the upcoming Apple Watch will become the first wearable device the guys from Cupertino have ever created. And what if I tell you that you are wrong?

As it turns out, back in 1995, two years before Steve Jobs came back to his company, Apple released a beautiful wrist-worn watch made of anodized aluminum with incredible design, colorful logo, scratch-resistant glass and "Mac OS" inscription on the band. Of course, it was just a watch; it couldn't boast of Bluetooth or Wi-Fi (it was 1995). However, the "Apple Watch" was very good-looking.

Chinese Thieves Steal 240 iPhones 6 from Beijing Warehouse



Back in December, three thieves stole 240 iPhone 6 units from a warehouse in China. I must admit, they did this in a rather unusual way. According to what Xinhua News Agency reporters write, three men dug a 20-inch hole beneath the wall of the warehouse in Beijing and took 240 iPhone 6 units with total value of about $230.000 (1.4 million yuan). Although this extraordinary event took place between December 12th ad 13th, Chinese press announced it publicly only today.

Apple to Release Stylus Alongside iPad Pro Launch This Year



According to the new report released by KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the guys from Cupertino are planning to equip their long-anticipated 12.9-inch iPad Pro with an optional stylus. Since the larger tablet will reportedly be targeted at enterprise customers, who use similar devices primarily for work, the addition of such a tool looks quite logical. Painters, designers and all those creative personalities that might need the larger iPad will also find a stylus very useful, I guess.

Its release may take place in September alongside the release of the new iPhone or iPhones.

Intel CEO Says Relationship with Apple Is Strong



Earlier this week I wrote an article about the relationship between Apple and Intel and about Apple’s plans to build its own A10X processor for the next-generation Mac as soon as in 2016. Although the rumor about a switch to own custom-build processors was shared by KGI analysts, looks like it was just a prediction. A couple of days ago, in an interview to CNBC Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said that the business relations between the tech giant from Cupertino and the largest chip manufacturer in the world remain strong and promising.

iPhone 6s to Feature 'Force Touch' and 2GB of RAM - Rumor



Earlier this week I told you that the next-generation iPhone will feature a dual-lens camera system and the support of pressure-sensitive display technology called "Force Touch".

Apart from that, the same sources believe the smartphone will also feature 2GB of RAM. And that is a noticeable improvement since the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both have only 1GB of RAM on board.

According to the recent rumors shared by Taiwanese insiders, the next-generation iPhone may feature a new dual-lens camera and the support of the so-called "Force Touch" technology used in the upcoming Apple Watch. The technology makes it possible to recognize different pressure-based gestures.
