Just as we expected, Apple on Wednesday released iOS 9 to public worldwide. If you have a compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, the update should be available in the Settings app under General - Software Update or once you connect your device to iTunes.

Apple on Monday seeded the eighth beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan to developers for testing.

I’ve got some good news for music fans. Apple has just released two new Apple Music ads featuring featuring The Weeknd and John Travolta. Well, actually these are not two separate clips, but a two-part commercial with single theme and message. The ad was first shown to public on Sunday night during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.

How often do you use Siri? If to speak about me, I use Apple’s virtual assistant quite rarely, in most cases just for fun. Well, as it turns out, Siri can not only look for something on the Internet or recognize the song playing at the cafe, but also save someone’s life. Literally.
Apple has released iOS 8.4.1 with a number of stability enhancements and bug fixes for Apple Music. Apart from adding several minor improvements to the streaming music service and mobile operating system in general, the guys from Cupertino have patched a number of vulnerabilities used by Taig tool for untethered jailbreak of iOS 8.4. If you have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and want to keep your device hacked, stay away from iOS 8.4.1. Well, at least now.

According to the latest rumors shared by industry sources citing Apple, over the last four weeks, more than 10 million users have subscribed for the long-awaited Beats-based streaming music service called Apple Music. 10 million in just one month is a great result, however, keeping in mind that the new service has been launched in about 100 countries simultaneously, the number of active subscribers could have been even bigger.
Apple Music service works great, however there are numerous disabled albums with E label. Let's find out what's going on and how to enable these albums.
For example new Muse album Drones is anavailable. Metallica great albums Garage Inc, Load, Reload are closed as well. My first guess was that Apple did not negotiate with album owners. The right answer is that some albums (many rock ones) have Explicit raiting, so they are disabled by default. You can change that easily. Here's how:
1. Go to Settings - General - Restrictions - Enable Restrictions. If this is your first time there create a password, or enter previously entered password.
2. Choose Allowed Content and then Music & Podcasts. Enable Explicit content switch.
3. You're done, now all albums are available. You might need to close Music app and run it again. Have fun listening.

Apart from releasing OS X El Capitan 10.11 Beta 2 and the second testing version of iOS 9, the guys from Cupertino have also seeded watchOS 2.0 Beta 2 to developers.
