Wearable devices are becoming more popular these days and more customers try to do interesting things with their smartwatches. A developer named Nick Lee, for example, has recently posted a video on YouTube, showing an Apple Watch running Windows 95. The reason for conducting such a strange experiment is unknown, but the result is quite entertaining. You can take a look at the Apple’s smartwatch running an old operating system from Microsoft below.
Apple has recently updated the Apple Music app for Android users. The updated version now lets users play music videos on their non-Apple handsets and supports family membership plans of the streaming music service. The ability to watch videos on Apple Music was a feature requested by thousands of users, so it’s nice Apple has finally added it.
Apple has recently released two new iPhone commercials entitled “iPhone 6s - Fingerprint” and “iPhone 6s - Onions”. Both ads highlight the functionality of Apple’s full-size smartphone and show how most people use their devices in everyday life.
As you already know, earlier this week, Apple released a new 12-inch MacBook with better processor, battery and the Rose Gold color option. The device is already available for purchase in the USA and a number of other countries. The prices start at $1,299 for the entry-level configuration.
Since the laptop is in stock at many Apple Stores, first videos and reviews already start to appear on YouTube. One of such early videos shows the brand new Rose Gold MacBook cut with a grinder to reveal its internal components.
Even though the clip doesn’t show anything extraordinary, it’s actually quite entertaining. Take a look below.
It is Sunday today, so let’s take a look at the most interesting posts of the past seven days.

HP has just unveiled something the company calls “the thinnest notebook in the world”. The laptop is called the Spectre and it’s only 10.4mm thick. Its rival, the 12-inch MacBook introduced in 2015 is 13.1mm thick.
In terms of hardware, these devices are different too. The new HP notebook is equipped with Intel Core i5 or i7 CPU, which is better than the Intel Core M processor included in the ultra-thin MacBook. In general, the device has a premium look and feel and costs $1,170. The pre-orders go live April 25th.
Below you can take a look at the video showing the new HP Spectre.

The device depicted in the video below features a slim body similar to the one iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s have, dual lens camera, new antenna bands, Smart Connector from the iPad Pro lineup and dual speakers. In line with previous rumors, the handset lacks the headphone jack and comes in gold, rose gold, black, silver and space gray colors.
Apple is expected to unveil the next-generation iPhone later this year. Most likely, the media event dedicated to the new handset will take place in September.
What do you think about today’s concept? I’m waiting for your answers in the comments section below.
According to the video that has been posted to YouTube by SquareTrade, the recently-released iPhone SE is less durable than the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The experts have recently performed a series of tests including placing the aforementioned devices into the water, dropping them from height and bending with a special machine. The results of these extensive testing procedures revealed that the 4-inch smartphone is the least durable among those tested.
It should be noted that the results of the iPhone SE are not surprising at all, especially if to keep in mind that the device has a design nearly identical to that of the iPhone 5s released back in 2013.
Below you can take a look at the video showing the testing process.
Apple has just released a new Apple Music commercial starring Taylor Swift. The short video, which is available below, is entitled “Taylor vs. Treadmill"’.
