It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days.

There’re also some posts that deal with iPhone sales and Apple’s streaming music service.
Apple has recently confirmed that there’s indeed an issue with the battery percentage that won’t update on some iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus units after users manually change the time or the time zone on their devices.

According to a sketchy report from Asian insiders, Apple supplier Quanta will start the trial production of the Apple Watch 2 at the end of January. The start of trial production in January may mean that the announcement and the release of the wearable device will take place early in spring. Alongside Quanta, such companies as Foxconn, Wistron and Inventec may obtain rights to manufacture the second-generation Apple Watch.
Looks like Apple has finally added a really useful feature to its mobile operating system. After the release of iOS 9, many users have begun complaining about the uncontrolled usage of cellular data because of Wi-Fi Assist. iOS 9.3, which is currently a beta, features one tiny tweak that makes it easy to understand exactly how much cellular data the device has used over a certain period of time. Now it is possible to monitor the Wi-Fi Assist activity and be aware of the cellular data usage to prevent additional charges from carrier.

Nine years ago, Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced a thing that changed the entire world. This thing was the iPhone. The big event took place on January 9th, 2007 at Macworld.
The original iPhone could feature a 3.5-inch touchscreen, 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of storage on board and a 2-megapixel camera and was a revolutionary device. Over 6 million iPhones of this generation were sold during the years of manufacture.
Since that time, many things have changed, but Apple’s iPhone still remains one of the most popular smartphones ever manufactured. Its design and functionality make this device the choice of millions of customers from all over the world.

For me personally, two main devices are the Apple Watch 2 and the 4-inch iPhone 6c. The specs for the smartwatch remain unknown, but there’re some rumors about the specs for the smaller iPhone.
