Rumors of production issues before a new Apple product launch are par for the course, and the Apple Watch has proven no different. But a source has indicated to AppleInsider that while there may be some supply issues for the debut of the Apple Watch, they are not unexpected and the company is prepared for them. Yield and manufacturing issues are common during the ramp-up in development of any Apple product. When the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus debuted last year, Apple...
Apple on Monday seeded an updated beta build of OS X 10.10.3 to developers and public beta testers, the fifth pre-release version of the company's desktop operating system that brings updates to the new Photos app as well as OS X Yosemite's recovery tools.

While Apple's radar- and camera-equipped minivans are being spotted with increasing frequency around the U.S., a new sighting this week in Germany served up an interesting twist: a Dodge Caravan that looks like one of Apple's vehicles, except it's a fake. The fake van. AppleInsider reader Thomas snapped a photo of the Apple homage in Hanover, the German city where the annual CeBIT technology trade show was held last week. The German Dodge sports the same style of...
Apple looks set to update its venerable wireless keyboard, with the aluminum slab appearing on the company's Czech online store with a tweaked layout and altered function keys that could indicate plans to add backlighting in the next version.

Czech...

Sales of the iPhone 6 are said to have greatly benefitted Pegatron's bottom line in 2014, according to Reuters.

With software sales for traditional game consoles and PCs projected to reach $35 billion this year, one analyst believes a new Apple TV with a dedicated App Store could have a noticeable impact on the company's bottom line. Rod Hall of J.P. Morgan is bullish on the prospect of a new Apple TV model rumored to debut at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June. In a research note to investors issued Monday, a copy of which was provided to AppleInsider, he...
An extraordinarily dubious rumor from China suggests that Apple has been unable to solve critical issues in the manufacturing of the Apple Watch's flexible OLED display that have driven yields perilously low, while assembly partner Quanta is said to be experiencing significant issues on its production lines due to the device's small size. Just 30 to 40 percent of the Apple Watch OLED panels rolling out of display partner LG's factories are usable, according to UDN,...
Apple executives like CEO Tim Cook were willing to participate in interviews for the new biography Becoming Steve Jobs because of the main author's connections to Jobs, and because the company wants to influence its co-founder's public image, according to an official spokesman. "After a long period of reflection following Steve's death, we felt a sense of responsibility to say more about the Steve we knew," Steve Dowling told the New York Times on Sunday. "We decided...
