While we are excited that the next generation of Apple TV will be arriving as early as September of this year (according to the latest news). Unfortunately the reveal also leaves us with some sad news. It looks like Apple's rumored Apple TV Subscription Service is not quite "read for prime time" yet. It will not be available when they launch the new Apple TV device.
According to the report, Apple still has several licensing deals it needs to work out with the entertainment industry. Luckily, the new Apple TV does set the stage for a later launch of the service, once Apple has all the proper contracts in place. It looks like we will simply need to wait a bit longer for the cake to fully bake.

Independent developer Amplitude Studios has announced it will bring its popular dungeon defense game, Dungeon of the Endless, to iPad users later this year. Described as a hybrid of roguelike and tower defense games, Dungeon of the Endless has been previously released on PC only, but now it's coming to Apple's tablet, as well.
Romain de Waubert de Genlis, creative director at Amplitude Studios, said the following:
"Our goal in bringing Dungeon of the Endless to iPad is to provide an amazing gameplay experience for fans on the go, and to open up what was once only a PC game to a broader group of gamers hungry for a new style of game on iPad. Our turn-based gameplay style lends itself perfectly to the simple touch-screen style of the iPad. It’s a great marriage of game design and...
During the most recent earnings call, Apple's CEO Tim Cook said “millions and millions” of people had signed up for a free trial of Apple Music. Now a fresh report coming from Hits Daily Double website seems to suggest that more than 10 million people have signed up for Apple Music’s three-month free trial. The publication said:
"Inside sources at some of the major labels—who are bound by ironclad NDAs—say that Apple Music has attracted more than 10 million subscribers in a mere four weeks."
The data reportedly comes directly from Cupertino, which is sharing streaming statistics internally with content owners. Of course, at the moment, there is no guarantee that those ten million users are are going to continue using the new service once they have to pay for it.
According to a recent press release sent out by retailer BestBuy, it seems that Apple will be making the Apple Watch available at more than 100 Best Buy stores in the U.S. on Aug. 7. Thus, BestBuy becomes the first major outlet to carry the Watch outside of Apple's own stores. Jason Bonfig, senior category officer at Best Buy, said the following:
"The Apple Watch is a big addition to our stores and website, and we know our customers want it. We are excited to bring the Apple Watch to more consumers, especially with the holidays coming up.”
BestBuy customers will be able to see, try and buy 16 Apple Watch models – including Sport and Watch models in both 38mm and 42mm sizes – and nearly 50 accessories, including watch bands, screen shields, stands, chargers and more.
AppleInsider reports that Nike and Apple have agreed to settle a class action suit that alleged that the two companies falsely advertised that the Nike+ FuelBand had health-tracking capabilities.
According to the terms that were reached Nike will pay up to $2.4 million to customers who bought a FuelBand product between January 19, 2012, and June 17, 2015, to settle the suit, which was first issued against Nike and Apple in 2013.
Despite being named as a co-defended with Nike, Apple will not have to pay anything.
The plaintiffs argued that Nike’s FuelBand did not live up to advertised claims that it could accurately track calorie burn, steps taken, and general activity. The suit also argued that both Apple and Nike knew that the claims were false, but continued to sell the FuelBand...
According to a report from Germany’s Manager Magazin, via AppleInsider, Apple approached BMW in 2014 with a view to collaborating on an electric car, with BMW’s own i3 commuter car said to be the basis of Apple’s car.
AppleInsider notes that while details about Apple’s apparent plans are few, it’s possible that the company was interested in using BMW’s “LifeDrive” architecture, which is a design that separates the i3’s drivetrain and battery module from the passenger cabin.
The report says that Apple CEO Tim Cook even visited BMW’s electric car facility in Leipzig along with several senior managers from Apple. For some reason Apple changed its mind about working with BMW, and the report gives no suggestion as to why the decision to end the talks with BMW was made. However,...
AppleInsider reports today on new rumours from Japanese website Macotakara which say that its industry sources are claiming that the forthcoming iPad mini 4 is essentially a “shrunken version of the iPad Air 2,” as it will have many of the same features as the larger iPad, such as a new 8MP iSight camera, A8-series processor, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
The sources also says that the new iPad mini 4 will be slimmed down from the current iPad mini size of 7.5mm to the same thickness as the iPad Air 2, which is 6.1mm. The iPad mini 4 is also expected to have the same laminated display as the iPad Air 2, complete with antireflective coating.
And despite other recent rumours that say that Apple will not be releasing a new iPad Air tablet this year due to the heavy production schedule of...
Why can't all of the auto manufacturers do this? Honda just announced that their Accord for 2016 will include support for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. To be clear, Honda isn't the first. GM and Hyundai have announced the same thing for some of their vehicles. Still, this is something that is likely very easy to do, so it seems like there's no reason (other than licensing agreements) why all new cars can't support the choice between Android Auto or Apple CarPlay for their infotainment hub. Regardless of the rant, here's the news regarding this announcement,
On the dashboard, both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto mirror smartphone apps that are useful and safe for a driver. The driver can control apps such as navigation, messaging and audio through dashboard controls or voice...
