Apple Celebrates 10th Anniversary of Apple Store App With Balloons

The balloons will bounce around for a few moments, and if you tap them, you can pop them. Otherwise, if you leave them alone, they'll simply float away. You can re...

Elon Musk is one of the most outspoken leaders in tech.  The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX has inspired intense devotion and attracted controversy as a result of his public statements.

Apple Releases New Version of 30W USB-C Power Adapter, But Changes Unclear

Apple today quietly released a new version of its 30W USB-C power adapter with the model number MY1W2AM/A.

Apple announced in June that it will start making its own chips for future Mac computers, enabling its laptops and desktops to run iPhone and iPad apps.

Apple isn't the first to tackle the challenge of creating an app ecosystem that works seamlessly across mobile and desktop — Microsoft has made attempts at this as well. Overall...

Apple sees growth in Mac and iPad sales owing to global work from home restrictions

Apple had a strong June quarter, and Mac and iPad sales, aided by the global shelter-in-place rules, were a major contributor: iPad revenue grew, sequentially, by over 50%, while revenue from Macs increased by over 30% in the same period. iPhone sales, meanwhile, grew marginally over last year, but fell down by as much as nearly 9% compared to the March quarter. The Services category, which had done really really well for Apple in the March quarter, more or less remained unaffected, as Apple loo...
