Martin Hajek is a 3D designer known for his stunning renderings of upcoming Apple products. His latest work consists in some high-quality renders of what he imagines to be the iPad Pro along with the rumored stylus accessory. Here's what the designer said about his digital creation:
As you can see the bezel is ‘back’, comparing the ‘Pro’ with the Air 2 and Mini 3 shows a much larger bezel-area. Other changes include having speaker holes on both the top and bottom of the iPad.
Rumour has it that Apple will also release a stylus to be used with the iPad Pro – I came up with a simple design which borrows the design language of the iPad Pro
Hajek also talks about functionality, saying that his rendered iPad Pro also includes a capacitive +/- slider for additional operations,...

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 $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...
