Thanks to the new iPhone specs, it is possible Apple will produce devices for augmented reality in the future.
Apple has earlier this week quietly removed the original iPad mini from its online store. This means that it is not possible to purchase this device directly from Apple’s virtual marketplace anymore. In case you don’t know, the smaller version of the iPad was released in 2012 and could boast of the 7.9-inch display, Apple A5 processor, 512MB of RAM and 5-megapixel camera. Frankly speaking, it’s high time the guys from Cupertino removed this device from the store. You see, there are currently two other iPad mini models that are more powerful and efficient.
Apple has recently started shipping the high-end 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition models to those people who pre-ordered the devices back in April. Users have begun receiving their long-anticipated 42mm and 38mm wearable devices with black sport bands.
Keeping these things in mind, it is not strange that first unboxing videos have begun to appear on the Internet. One of the first videos offering a closer look at the gold smartwatch was published on YouTube by a user nicknamed TechRax, who is famous for boiling the iPhone 6 in Coca-Cola and grinding the handset with a grinder. He shows us the $10.000 38mm Apple Watch Edition model with a sport band. Take a look below.
Apple on Tuesday released the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro and the 27-inch iMac with an amazing 5K display. The release took place one day earlier than we expected. As you know, rumors pointed to the official launch of the aforementioned devices on Wednesday.
Aside from announcing the Apple Watch and the 12-inch MacBook, the guys from Cupertino have slightly improved the existing 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air models and the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Immediately after the official announcement of the long-anticipated 12-inch Retina MacBook at the “Spring Forward” media event on Monday, first hands-on videos began to appear on the Internet showing how the new laptop looks and feels. Among all the clips I would like to point out the one published by TechnoBuffalo reporters as the one, which is the best in terms of length and the amount of information about the device it offers. You may take a look at this video below.
According to the rumor, which appeared on the Internet earlier this week, at its “Spring Forward” event scheduled for March, 9th, Apple may announce not only the long-anticipated Apple Watch, but also its completely revamped 12-inch MacBook Air with Retina display. While there’s no confirmation from Apple or its suppliers, the March release looks quite possible. Earlier this year, a reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed Apple may launch the new laptop in March.
According to the latest rumors shared by reliable insiders, the guys from Cupertino will show us an updated MacBook Air later this month. Since Apple has no media events planned for February, this won’t be the 12-inch MacBook with Retina display and a number of serious performance improvements. This will be just a slightly better version of the existing laptop. The updated MacBook Air is expected to become available on February 24th.
According to the latest reports from reliable sources, Apple suppliers are currently gearing up to start the mass production of the long-awaited 12-inch MacBook Air with Retina display. First laptops will be assembled as soon as in the first quarter of the next year, DigiTimes reporters claim.
I have a piece of news for Russian customers: local Apple Online Store is currently back after being inactive for a couple of days due to noticeable currency exchange variations in the country.

Well, I must admit that the increase in prices is quite noticeable.
The guys from Cupertino have recently released three new Safari beta-versions, namely, Safari 8.0.1, Safari 7.1.1 and Safari 6.2.1 to developers for testing. These betas are designed to work on different OS X versions and contain a wide number of bug fixes and security improvements.

It's also got a brand new camera out back: an 8MP iSight camera (f/2.4 aperture) that does 1080p video, burstmode, panorama shots, and auto HDR (that takes up a bit less space). iPad Air has Touch ID, the Home button-based security system that enables login via fingerprint. With Touch ID, iPad Air 2 also has Apple Pay, albeit enabled for online purchases only. Front-facing camera is also getting improved, and it's now known as the "Facetime HD" camera.
