It appears that Apple is disallowing iOS 9 beta users to submit app reviews -- positive or negative -- with the latest build released on Tuesday, a feature that was becoming an increasingly irritating thorn in the side of developers since Apple opened its public beta program earlier this year. Testers running Apple's fourth iOS 9 beta, currently for developers only, are able to access the iOS App Store as usual, but no longer have the ability to post reviews....
Apple made good on a promise to return music Home Sharing to iOS with the release of its fourth iOS 9 beta on Tuesday, a build which also came with a few minor user interface adjustments including a new way of displaying Handoff panes in the app switcher. As seen in the screenshot above, Home Sharing for music is now an active option in iOS 9 beta, restoring a feature many iPhone, iPad and iPod users relied upon to stream content not stored locally on their iOS...

Despite estimates to the contrary, Apple Watch sales didn't fall off a cliff just months after launch, Apple CEO Tim Cook said Tuesday, adding the device actually posted its best-ever performance in June. The tidbit came out in response to a question posed near the tail end of Apple's quarterly conference call for the third quarter of 2015.

Apple's Chinese revenues shot ahead 112 percent year-over-year during the June quarter to over $13.2 billion, reflecting the growing importance of the country to Apple's bottom line even as other regions also showed significant growth. The Americas continued to be Apple's best-performing region in terms of overall revenue, rising 15 percent to $20.2 billion. China, however, easily eclipsed Europe, which advanced 19 percent year-over-year but only to $10.3 billion....
The Apple Watch has sold more units in the first nine weeks following its launch than either the iPhone or iPad did at the same point after their respective releases, Apple CFO Luca Maestri said on Tuesday. Though Maestri declined to give specific numbers when speaking to the New York Times, his comment does provide some context for Apple Watch sales data which Apple has otherwise kept closely guarded. The iPhone sold around 1 million units through its first three...

Since lumping devices like iPod, Apple TV and Beats hardware together under an umbrella accounting category named "Other products" in January, Apple has only seen the segment bleed out. That ended Tuesday when the company announced "Other" jumped 56 percent sequentially during the third fiscal quarter of 2015, attributed at least in part to Apple Watch sales. Investors and industry pundits alike have been waiting for Apple's "Other" results since the company announced...
