Apple is expected to hold an "enormous" iPhone upgrade event in its retail stores. On May 8th, the guys from Cupertino will start sending emails to those users who have an older iPhone. They will be offered a discount on newer handset - iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c - if they decide to give their old one back to Apple.
Apple's iOS 7 (including iOS 7.1) is not as secure and protected as it was believed to be. According to what security researcher Andreas Kurtz writes, email attachments sent using native Mail app aren't encrypted. What's even more interesting is that Apple claims the files are encrypted. This means the guys from Cupertino had no idea about the issue until now.
Samsung infringed on Apple's patents. This is what the jury found out during the Apple vs Samsung trial. What is interesting, though, is that Apple was also accused of violating Samsung's patent for "Apparatus for recording and reproducing digital image and speech", so now it has to pay the South Korean manufacturer $158.400.
According to the latest rumors, Apple has recently released OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 codenamed 'Epic' to the company employees. What is interesting about this update is that it has appeared before the official release of OS X Mavericks 10.9.3.
The week has nearly come to an end, so I think we should take a look at the list of the most interesting posts. Let's start.
If to speak about popular articles, they deal mostly with the iPhone and the iWatch. In particular, over the past few days a couple of physical mockups have appeared on the Internet that show how Apple's next-gen handset might look like.

A new tweak has been recently released on Cydia. It disables Bluetooth when your iOS device is connected to your home Wi-Fi network and enables it automatically when Wi-Fi connection is inactive.

A couple of images showing something what appears to be a physical mockup of the next generation iPhone with a 5.5-inch display have been spotted on the Internet. The mockup seems to be based on renderings shared by a Japanese website MacFan last month.
Microsoft on Tuesday released the first major update for its Office for iPad. The guys from Redmond added printing capabilities to all of the apps from Office suite, namely, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. What this means is that now you can print any document you like directly from your iPad.
According to the latest rumors, Apple's suppliers have recently begun the production of the long-anticipated iWatch. However, this is not the mass-production yet. Apple's smartwatch is expected to be launched this fall, so it's high time the suppliers started assembling the gadget.
According to the latest rumors, Apple's next generation iPhone with a 4.7-inch screen may become as thin as the current iPod touch. In case you don't know, this device is only 6.1mm thick. Just for you to compare: iPhone 5s is 7.6mm thick.
