MCVUK reports today that Apple has changed its refunds policy in the European iTunes store. Apparently the change actually took place last month, but no one noticed until now!
Previously, anyone that requested to be able to return any digital purchase from iTunes and get their payment refunded would have their request dealt with individually on a case-by-case basis, with Apple having the final decision on whether or not the customer’s request for a refund would be granted.
Now, however, any digital purchase can be returned, and the customer refunded their money, within 14 days of purchase. The change brings Apple into line with new digital retail rules in Europe that say that customers are entitled to a refund on all purchases, including digital purchases.
By law, a refund does not...
Apple has updated its iTunes Store app on iOS and desktop with a new “Free on iTunes” section that is now available on the homepage. This new feature will allow Apple users to find free content much easier, without having to waste a lot of time browsing for these items.
The “Free on iTunes” tab shows music and full length TV show episodes that can be downloaded free of charge.
You will find there such content as songs by Asking Alexandria, Machine Head, Rogue Wave, and episodes from TV shows like 12 Monkeys, Backstrom, and more. By the looks of it, this seems to be more indie content, instead of media coming from big production names.
The new section seems to be available only in the US iTunes Store for now, but it could gradually roll out to other countries, as well.
According to a fresh report coming from South Korean publication Maeil Business Newspaper, Samsung has reportedly nabbed 75% of Apple's next-gen 'A9' SoC orders. So, if we are to believe this report, no matter how much Apple wouldn't want to reduce its dependency on Samsung, the company seems to be the single one able to responsibly manufacture on its own the chips for the future iPhones and iPads.
The publication says Samsung's factory from Austin, Texas will handle a 75 percent slice of orders for Apple's upcoming System-on-Chip, which is expected to be dubbed "A9".
Apple could be using Samsung's advanced 14-nanometer FinFET fabrication process, according to sources. Before the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus launch, Samsung was responsible for fabricating all A-series chips, but Apple has...
The latest rumors and hearsay seem to point to the fact that the upcoming Apple Watch will be launched sometime in March. Now, according to a fresh report coming from 9to5Mac publication, it seems that Apple has made another important hire from the fashion industry.
Mark Gurman says Apple has hired Chester Chipperfield, the Vice President of Digital and Interactive Design at Burberry. Previously, Chipperfield was “responsible for User Experience and Digital Design for all channels” and was “highly involved in digital retail initiatives” at Burberry, according to his social media channels. Here are some more details:
With experience in digital initiatives for a fashion powerhouse, Chipperfield will likely be critical in the rollout of the Apple Watch over the next few months.

A recent patent application published by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, dubbed "Device Input Modes With Corresponding User Interfaces," details a method that would allow iPad users to access information on their devices by partially opening the Smart Cover. The patent application reads:
"The device's ease of use can be increased by enabling access to certain resources or features without requiring the user to unlock the device"
AppleInsider found the patent and they discovered that the smart cover could also interpret specific gestures, which would allow iPad owners to quickly change certain settings. Here's more:
Folding away the first segment of the Smart Cover could reveal the latest notification, such as the subject and sender of an email message, for instance. Further...
Apple's board members earnings for the past year were revealed in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The documents revealed that CEO Tim Cook received compensation of over $9.22 million in 2014, which is more than double his pay from 2013.
The $9.22 million that Tim Cook earned includes the $1.75 million salary, $6.7 million in non-equity incentives and other company contributions. Cook's salary in 2013 amounted to $1.4 million, but these numbers don't reflect the $69.6 million in vested stock options. When he took over as CEO in 2011, Cook received a $378 million payout package and a $372.6 million one-time stock award scheduled to vest through 2021.
What's interesting, however, is that the newly appoint SVP of Retail, Angela Ahrendts, who was hired on in...
The fifth instalment in the Dragon Quest series arrives in the App Store today for iOS.
Thought to be one of the best games in the entire series, Dragon Quest V: The Hand of the Heavenly Bride was first released in 1992 exclusively in Japan, but became a fan-favourite in Europe when it was finally released on Nintendo DS in 2009.
The storyline follows the adventures of a young boy on his journey to adulthood as he meets friend and foe alike. The plotline spans three generations, with the boy starting out on his travels with his father, Pankraz, and eventually ending up as a father himself.
If you’ve ever played any Dragon Quest game on any device or console, then you’ll know what to expect—classic hardcore RPG gameplay in a magical environment populated by much loved characters,...
This isn't Apple related news, but it's one of the biggest moves of their competitor and is the buzz of the internet today, so we thought it worth sharing here.
There is something we missed in our reporting yesterday of Microsoft's Windows 10 briefing. The product wasn't actually directly related to Windows 10, so please forgive us for our oversight. Once you see this tech, (if you haven't already) you may have reason to be irritated with us for missing it.
After discussing Windows 10, Microsoft also announced an experimental new product which they have been working on for over 5 years. It's called HoloLens, and it's basically everything Google Glass wants to be and much, much more. In fact, HoloLens may just be the next "disruptive" tech device that shakes up the entire electronics...
Twitter has almost 300 million monthly active users with around 500 million Tweets being sent per day. A good part of these tweets come from iPhone and iPad users. The company is well aware of that and that's why it is now releasing a really useful feature for them.
Twitter is rolling out its "While you were away" recaps for its iOS app which will allow iPhone and iPad users to see a snapshot of popular or relevant tweets they missed since the last time they checked in. Twitter also said the feature will be launching soon on its Android app and web interface soon.
Paul Rosania, Twitter's Product Manager, made the announcement yesterday on the company's official blog, saying the following:
A lot can happen while you’re on the go. To fill in some of those gaps, we will surface a few...
