According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, Apple has placed limited orders for the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which is expected to go on sale as soon as next month. In particular, the company plans to sell only 2.5 million iPad units by the end of this year, which is obviously not very large number if compared to usual iPhone shipments. Moreover, if the demand for the tablet with massive pressure-sensitive display turns out to be weak, the orders for the first quarter of 2016 may be even lower, DigiTimes reporters claim.
It is Sunday today, which means that it’s high time I told you about the most popular posts of the last couple of days. Most the articles this week deal with the iPhone, as well as with the release of iOS 9.1 and OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan to users worldwide. Apart from that, you can find some posts related to the launch of the Apple TV, sales of Apple products in new countries and predictions about the next-generation iPhone.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has recently predicted that Apple will sell as many as 70-75 million iPhone units during the next holiday quarter. Apart from that, the expert believes that Apple will sell 3.5-4 million Apple Watch units to users worldwide in the foreseeable future. Thanks to customers from China and strong demand for Apple’s iPhones in other countries of availability, the year-over-year growth may account for 23.6%. After the holiday quarter, however, the shipments may fall substantially and demonstrate the year-over-year decline.
According to what Apple CEO Tim Cook has revealed during the recent WSJDLive conference, the long-awaited fourth-generation Apple TV will start shipping as soon as next week. The company will start taking the pre-orders for the new set-top box next Monday, October 26th. First devices are expected to be shipped to customers in the countries of initial launch by the end of the next week.
Even though the sales of the long-awaited 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the fourth-generation Apple TV set-top box haven’t yet started in the United States, several retailers in Europe have begun offering pre-orders for both devices.
According to the latest report from Other World Computing (OWC), the recently-introduced 27-inch Retina 5K iMac supports up to 64GB of RAM. Unlike the smaller 21.5-inch Retina 4K iMac, which uses soldered RAM that can be upgraded only by Apple on customer’s demand before the purchase, the larger model gives the owner an opportunity to upgrade the maximum RAM capacity offered by Apple by two times using modules of up to 16GB per one slot. This makes the 27-inch iMac a worth-purchasing device for all those who use computer for image and video editing and other things that require much RAM and powerful processor.
In addition to the iPhone 6s teardown, which was completed several weeks ago, the iFixit has just performed a new one. This time the experts have decided to give us a closer look at the advanced 4.7-inch iPhone 6s display, which can boast of the resolution of 750 x 1334, pixel density of about 326 ppi and which supports the 3D Touch technology. This technology detects multiple levels of pressure and using this information performs a set of predefined features.
It Sunday today, which means it’s time to tell you about the most interesting articles of the past seven days. Most of these posts deal with Apple’s iOS 9 and its bugs, new iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and the worldwide Mac sales. There are also several articles that tell us about the new releases of iOS 9.1 and OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan, however, if you are not a developer, this is not very important to you. What is important, though, is that soon we may see the jailbreak of iOS 8.4.1.
According to the latest reports from well-known and reliable IDC and Gartner analysts, Apple’s Mac sales in the third quarter of this year demonstrate the weakest results in the course of the last two years. Still, PC sales fell by 7.7% (Gartner) or 10.8% (IDC), and the market share of Mac computers grew from 6.9% to either 7.6% (Gartner) or 7.5% (IDC). It is currently unclear how many Macs Apple actually shipped to customers in Q3 2015 as Gartner reports about 5.6 million units and IDC claims the number was equal to 5.3 million units.

Knowing that there are almost no reviews and benchmarks of the long-awaited handset, she took several photos of her dog using the updated 12-megapixel camera of her Rose Gold iPhone 6s, shot a short 4K video and posted the results of Geekbench 3 benchmark to show us all performance improvements of the new handset.
