Apple has begun showing an upcoming Mac Pro teaser in movie theaters across the USA. In the short clip we can see the new Mac from multiple angles, so this is probably the same video that was first shown to developers at WWDC.
Apple has reportedly asked the developers that are working on the applications for children under 11 years of age to classify their products in one of three age ranges: ages 5 and under, ages 6-8 and ages 9-11. Such classification will surely help parents to choose the appropriate content for their children after the special "Kids" category appears on App Store this fall.
According to Digitimes, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is delaying with components supply. Therefore, the launch of the iPhone 5S may be put off and Apple might ship “only 3-4 million units in the third quarter of 2013 compared to 10 million units as originally planned”. It should be noted that a similar report, only lacking exact figures and specifics, was published on July 15th. Besides it is not the first time Apple CEO Tim Cook admits that the plans of Cupertino company may be put off due to delays in supply-chains.
Mass production of the fingerprint sensors was originally scheduled to begin in May at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and then to be packaged at Xintec, a TSMC subsidiary, the sources indicated. However, the production of the sensors has been delayed due to issues related to integration between iOS 7 and fingerprint chips, as well as a low yield rate at packaging firm Xintec, the sources revealed.
An engineering team composed of engineers from Apple and TSMC has been dispatched to Xintec recently to help ramp up the yield rate for the packaging of fingerprint sensors, revealed the sources, adding that the supply chain will be able to start volume production of fingerprint chips at the end of August.
SemiAccurate says that Intel will become Apple's supplier of ultra-high performance version of its Haswell for the coming MacBook Pros. According to the report, the chips will boast a special version of Intel's highest-end GT3e (Iris Pro 5200) integrated graphics.
It was Apple that requested a special top bin cream-of-the-crop GT3e selection from Intel, with "as much GPU power as possible." Now when most of the top chips are bought by Apple, much less will remain for Intel's other customers.
Apple’s Senior vice president and Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer shared some interesting information about the company’s Q3 results yesterday. According to his report, we can easily trace the iTunes App Store growth. Apart from that, there are more than 320 million iCloud accounts now - that's 20 million more since WWDC in June.
Rejoice all those who don’t like neither Google Docs, nor Microsoft Office 365 as a few days ago their new rival was born. Announced in June at WWDC, this rival is a purely new cloud-based iWork version. Well, actually, this is still only a beta and at the moment it is available only for Apple developers. However, what that means is that the relatively short-term Google-Microsoft domination in the sphere of cloud editing tools might be soon over.
Here’s the link for the developers that haven’t yet tried the new product and some screenshots for people that don’t have a developer account. Take a look at those photos.

In order to expand into Russian territory, Apple as registered a company called Apple Rus and assigned Vitaly Morozk, the company's local legal advisor as its director general.

A leaked photo of an upcoming Logitech game controller for the iPhone 5 has been posted online by Kotaku.
Can't tell you who gave it to us or where it was seen, but we can vouch for this image's authenticity. The controller is large enough to fit an iPhone 5. When iOS 7 introduces third-party controller support in the fall we'll see this thing, plus a bunch of others, probably. Apple evidently won't be making its own.
Apple executives on several occasions during the just-finished WWDC keynote made note of both the fact that the new Mac Pro is being built in the United States and that the redesigned iOS 7 software and other apps are being conceived, designed and implemented by its team of engineers in California.
