Apple Watch

When it comes to Apple products, it’s not unusual for new (and highly anticipated) devices to sell out within hours of its launch. iPhones, MacBooks and iPads have made headlines in the past for how quickly they sell out.

The same can be said for Apple’s most recent, highly anticipated device launch – the Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch, which was announced last year along with the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus,  was made available for pre-order online on Friday. And as is the case with many new Apple products, all the various Apple Watch models sold out quickly, in under 6 hours. (more…)

The details around Apple’s display plans were leaked in a press release by LG that details their new 8K display technology, which they are calling “Quad-Ultra High Definition.”

It was most likely not on purpose (and we’re sure the copy editor in charge of press releases at LG has had a talking to) but the press release that was posted on the company’s website, mentions Apple’s plans for a 8K, high-resolution display in the new iMacs.

As we all know, LG is the display partner for Apple, so it was only natural that they would mention their new technology along with their partners. However, LG certainly didn’t beat around the bush when it came to revealing Apple’s plans.  (more…)

Interestingly, all of the Apple Watch apps in question will arrive as updates to their iOS counterparts (New functionality present in a future iOS Twitter update, for example) – and will primarily bring new functions to the Apple Watch as a companion/utility device next to the iPhone.
