Commemorating the launch of the Apple Watch on Friday, Apple launched three new ads showcasing how the device can be useful in normal daily life situations. The trio of ads are entitled "Us," "Up," and "Rise," and follow in the company's recent style of dramatic-but-normal situations in life, and how they can be changed by the presence of technology. The focal point of Apple's recent ad campaigns has been to spotlight humanity rather than focusing on the product...
Apple is introducing its new Watch across a limited number countries today, but only a few stores will have the device available for sale. Among that short list is Colette, a fashion boutique just a few blocks from Apple's own retail store at Carrousel, beneath the Louvre. By 10 a.m., more than 150 people were lined up at Colette, forming a queue around the corner and nearly all the way down to the Tuileries gardens. The line didn't start moving until 11 a.m. It did...
Days after apparent supply constraints slowed ship times for certain Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro models to 1-2 weeks, the Online Apple Store on Friday extended those estimates to 2-3 weeks. On Wednesday, AppleInsider reported that 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display inventory has been fluctuating over the past month. With discrete GPU models now shipping in 2-3 weeks, the dwindling supply could point to an imminent refresh with expected to bring Broadwell...
References to a heretofore unknown "iTunes Subscription" service showed up in the iTunes desktop client on Friday, potentially revealing a few details of a rumored Apple-branded streaming music solution said to launch sometime this year.

The teardown is currently...
Prospective Apple Watch buyers are queuing up outside high-end fashion outlets scheduled carry the device on launch day, an odd scene for those accustomed to seeing those same lines at Apple's own stores for a big product debut. Source: CNET via Twitter With Apple Watch already reaching customers in Australia, fans anxious to get a copy on launch day must have preordered on April 10 or live in one of six locations where the device is slated to go on sale in extremely...
It's just after 9 a.m. in Australia and that means the first wave of Apple Watch orders are reaching customers' hands, marking an official rollout of the first product developed entirely under Apple CEO Tim Cook.

As seen above, new owners are posting photographs of the sacred unboxing...
Apple on Thursday rolled out an update for its iMovie video editing app for OS X, fixing an issue that could cause the program to crash and baking in enhanced YouTube sharing compatibility. iMovie version 10.0.8 comes a little over one month after the last update brought support for haptic feedback and Force Touch features compatible with Apple's new MacBook trackpads. Apple fails to detail exact changes included in the latest iMovie build, noting only that...
Apple on Thursday released a pair of small but important software updates, one dealing with iMac kernel panics triggered when previewing JPEG files and another adding WatchKit compatibility to TestFlight's iOS beta-testing platform. The first is identified as the iMac Graphics Update and can be downloaded by owners of any 2013 iMac or the 2014 5K model. Apple notes that on systems running OS X 10.10.3, viewing "very large" JPEG files in Finder or Preview can cause a...

The iOS-compatible $199 Microsoft Band has gained support for both MapMyRide and Strava. With an update to the Microsoft Health app, cycling data from the third-party services can be shared and integrated into the...
