AT&T included iPhone In Its Insurance Policy



IMGP6572

AT&T included Apple’s iPhone (all models) to their insurance program for mobile devices. Starting on July 17 customers can stay calm paying just five dollars per month. With this coverage not only your iPhone but also your other wireless investments on the AT&T network will be protected from loss, theft, electrical failure and accidental damage that standard Apple’s warranty doesn’t cover.

If your handset is stolen, damaged or lost, you will have the right to replace you handset with the deductible ranging from $50 to $125 per claim providing that you file no more than two claims for twelve consecutive months. Here is a citation from AT&T’s mobile insurance page:

Effective July 17, 2011, the Apple iPhone (all models) will be eligible for coverage with the AT&T Mobile Insurance program (formerly Wireless Phone Insurance). Enrollment restrictions apply. Customers can only enroll within 30 days of a new activation or upgrade, prior activations or upgrades outside of 30 days are not eligible.

Also customers can consider an option of replacing AT&T’s insurance with Apple’s insurance plan as it is known that Apple replaces accidentally broken and out-of-warranty iPhones for a fixed $199 repair fee, but the warranty doesn’t cover theft or loss. Also you should know that there are some cases that neither company covers, for example, liquid damage.

Final Cut Pro X Refunds



final cut pro

The Next Web reports that Apple has started to issue refunds to App Store customers for Final Cut Pro X, Motion, or Compressor after a wave of criticism from professionals due to absent of many “pro” functionalities of the previous version.  One of the customers posted the e-mail demonstrating how Apple is dealing with these problems:

Moving forward, I understand that you are not satisfied with the app “Final Cut Pro”. I can certainly appreciate you would like a refund, and I would be more than happy to help you out with this today. In five to seven business days, a credit of £179.99 should be posted to the credit card that appears on the receipt for that purchase.

Please note that this is a one time exception because the iTunes Terms and Conditions state that all sales are final.

Apple Temporarily Freezing In-App Purchase Approvals



in-app purchases

A number of iOS developers have been unable for over a week now to get their in-app purchase content approved by Apple, as the company requires in the iTunes Connect developer portal to test IAP with a test user account, but this account has been offline with no explanation from Apple.

As a matter of policy, Apple requires developers to test in-app purchases (IAP) with a test user account before the application in question can be approved. Unfortunately, this test account has been offline for a week now with no word as to why. If you are a developer, you can see the relevant thread on Apple’s own developer forums here.

Apple Pulls iAds From Kid-Focused Apps as Advertisers Target Efforts



dex_pokemon

MacStories posted a message from one App Store developer who recently saw the iAd fill rate for his Dex application for iOS drop to zero. He asked Apple and received the following answer:

We periodically review the apps in the iAd Network to ensure that all apps receiving ads are aligned with the needs of our advertisers. Currently, our advertisers prefer that their advertising not appear in applications that are targeted for users that are young children, since their products are not targeted at that audience.

Apple Changes Its App Policy, Focuses On The Quality, Not Quantity



itunes-app-store

Recently Apple has made changes to its app policy and focused on making the iOS App Store the most attractive rather than simply the biggest.

Lately the company has banned the idea of "incentivized app installs", which was used by certain game developers to prompt players to install other apps if they want to continue playing. Because of the incentives some apps become artificially popular and don’t reflect the actual situation in top games chart, for instance.
