Last week, I told you that the Apple Watch is a potential target for thieves as it has no Activation Lock or Find My iPhone feature. According to the latest report from 9to5Mac reporters, who cite reliable sources, the guys from Cupertino are currently working on an update for Watch OS that will include a feature called Find My Watch. This update will also make the operating system more stable and improve its connectivity and health-tracking capabilities as well as the compatibility with third-party apps. Moreover, this update can possibly make the smartwatch a primary input device for the upcoming Apple TV.
Yesterday I told you about the possible shift in Apple's usual product update cycle due to the release of the 15-inch MacBook Pro and the 27-inch iMac this Wednesday. Today a new rumor appeared on the Internet that suggests that the guys from Cupertino may release the next-generation iPhone as soon as in August instead of September. The reason for such an early release of the device is probably connected with the good supply of components for the handset called presumably the iPhone 6s or iPhone 7.
According to the latest report from MacG, the guys from Cupertino may release a brand new 15-inch MacBook Pro as well as the 27-inch iMac as soon as this Wednesday.

If the latest rumor turns out to be true, we’ll see a shift in Apple’s usual update cycle.
Hackers have recently begun exploring the capabilities of the Apple Watch.

Although using a web-browser on a device with the screen size like this does not seem a very convenient thing, the fact remains: you can use a browser on your Apple Watch.
According to the information found in Moody's Investors Service study, which was published on Thursday, Apple remains the top cash holder in the United States of America with about $178 billion in cash reserves. Its closest competitors from the technology sector, Microsoft and Google, have noticeably weaker reserves of $90.2 billion and $64.4 billion in cash respectively. Another interesting fact is that the sum of money Apple has in its reserve is greater that the sum of money most of the U.S. industries have combined. That’s what I call a successful tech company.
Despite all the rumors about the launch of 4-inch lower-cost iPhone later this year, a well-known and usually reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that the guys from Cupertino won’t unveil such a device in the near future. He thinks that the smaller smartphone may be unveiled only in 2016. As to the reason for such a decision, it may be connected with the demand for the iPhone 5s, which stays strong. There’s no point in investing money on a new smartphone if people still buy the old one, right?
