Apple Remains World's Top Tablet Vendor - IDC





According to the latest reports from J.D Power and IDC, Apple currently remains world's top tablet manufacturer with 22.8% market share and 12.3 million iPad units shipped in the third quarter of this year. Still, the researchers claim that Apple's tablet sales are weaker than in the year-ago quarter.

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.

As it was previously announced, Apple is today launching its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in 22 new countries.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Fail Drop Tests



Immediately after the start of sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in several countries, first drop and crash tests began to appear on the Internet. The bad news is that both handsets are not doing well in these ultimate durability tests.

The smaller iPhone seems to demonstrate slightly better results, but in general, both handsets can’t be called the strongest devices on the market. Take a look at the video and you will understand what I mean.
