New iPhones Are Less Popular Among Former Android Users Than Expected



According to the latest survey results published by a research firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are not as popular among Android switchers as they were expected to be. In fact, the amount of former Android users who decided to purchase Apple's handset this year is nearly two times smaller if to compare with 2013. Just look: 12% and 23%. I must admit, the difference is immense. What is even more interesting is that the number of Windows Phone or Blackberry switchers turned out to be smaller in 2014 as well; more people decided to upgrade to the iPhone 5s last year and not to the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus this year. This means that about 80% of the new iPhone buyers are former iPhone owners.

In a letter written for Bloomberg Businessweek, Tim Cook declared his support for human equality and for the first time publicly admitted that he's gay. I must say, this was quite a surprising step as earlier Apple CEO was keeping his personal life away from public.

iTunes Sales Fall 13%, Apple Hurries Up to Rebrand Beats Music



According to what people familiar with the matter claim, iTunes sales have fallen more than 13% this year. Keeping this information in mind, it now becomes clear why the guys from Cupertino have decided to rebrand the Beats Music service and make it a part of the iTunes brand. You see, more and more people prefer listening to music online to downloading separate songs or albums. There are several reasons for that, namely, the rapid development of 3G and 4G networks and the price, of course. It is cheaper to purchase the subscription for the music streaming service than to buy all the songs you like.
