Apple will visit Russia to talk about iPhone





TechCrunch reports that Apple executives are visiting Russia to talk about Phone sales.

Although Apple has yet to confirm what iPhone handsets it will launch next, the meetings are a sign of how Apple may be preparing to launch new, possibly cheaper devices, to revisit a market that has seen demand for its products, but also one where it has faced challenges working with carriers, the presence of a crazily-priced grey market and, according to eager distributors, short supply issues that do not meet demand.

Apple will be sending its top executives to have a meeting with retailers in Russia. No details of the topics to be discussed are known.

Apple Care Support Site Revamped With New Features



Apple Care Support Site is finally revamped with a 24/7 chat and some other improvements and enhancements. The website should have been updated on August 12th, but somehow this happened only now.

The site features simpler interface with larger icons to help people find what they’re looking for easily. As I’ve mentioned above, the new support web page also gives users quick access to Apple Care agent 24/7 and this is probably the biggest improvement, since before the update you had to look through various FAQs to finally get the ability to talk with Apple representative.

According to the latest rumors, the revamped Apple Care Support Site is not yet available for all users but in a day or two it is expected to start working properly.

Apple to launch graphics card replacement program for iMacs



According to information provided by 9to5Mac, Apple is starting a replacement program for the graphics card used in some mid-2011 iMacs.

Apple has determined that some AMD Radeon HD 6970M video cards used in 27-inch iMac computers with 3.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 or 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processors may fail, causing the computer’s display to appear distorted, white or blue with vertical lines, or to turn black. iMac computers with affected video cards were sold between May 2011 and October 2012.

In order to get the graphic card replaced the serial number of your iMac should finish with one of the following groups (for example, xxxxxxxxDHJQ):
● DHJQ, DHJW, DL8Q, DNGH, DNJ9, or DMW8
● DPM1, DPM2, DPNV, DNY0, DRVP, DY6F, F610

The video below describes the graphics issue. If you own one of the Macs models mentioned above, the AMD graphics card will be replaced for free for three years from the computer's purchase date. If the card is already replaced at your expense, you may get  refund.
