According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, Apple has recently updated the iOS App Store with a new category. This category is called Shopping and as you can guess from the name, it contains applications that help users to shop, compare prices for various goods, get and redeem coupons, watch product reviews etc. The new category should be already available to Apple users worldwide, however, if you still don't see it, wait a bit as implementing such a change is quite a difficult task that may take some time.
During the September media event devoted to the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, Apple focused the attention of media and potential buyers on the updated 12-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras added to the devices.

Below you may take a look at the chart showing which devices should be purchased by those who love taking photos with their phone.
As you know, both iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are equipped with 2GB of RAM.

Adrienne Levin, a customer from the United States of America, was lucky enough to receive her pre-ordered iPhone 6s much earlier than she was expecting.

Just as we expected, the media event devoted to Apple’s new iPhone and possibly iPad mini will take place on Wednesday, September 9th at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California.

According to the latest computer technical support satisfaction survey conducted by a magazine called Consumer Reports, Apple’s tech support was once again recognized as the best one. As noted by the journalists, four out of five Mac users who turned to Apple’s technical support were able to solve their problem without visiting Genius Bar or paying additional money. If to speak about the companies that produce and sell Windows-based computers, only about half of users were satisfied with their technical support service. And that’s not the first time Apple gets such a high score.
Apple has recently updated its App Store Review Guidelines. According to this updated document, the guys from Cupertino will reject the Apple Watch apps designed to only tell time.

Apple has just begun releasing selected third-party Apple Watch apps on the App Store. These apps include Twitter, Evernote, Things, Target, Dark Sky, The Wall Street Journal and many other applications from non-Apple developers.

They will also get a chance to pre-order the tiny gadget. However, to decide whether they actually need the Apple Watch, people should be able to look at different apps created for it.

With growing popularity of smart devices, like smartphones and tablets, most users demand wireless and mobile features from audio systems.

Apple on Monday released the third public OS X Yosemite beta to those who has previously registered as a beta tester. Apart from that, the guys from Cupertino seeded OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 8, which contains a number of minor stability improvements and security updates.

However, such an assumption hasn't yet been confirmed neither by developers, nor by Apple, so take it with a few pinches of salt.
