Jean Philippe Bouchard, Research Director, Tablets, said the following:
“Commercial segments will play a crucial role in the future of 2-in-1’s. It will take some time but we expect that once IT departments are done evaluating Windows 10 and the awaited iPad Pro, they will start migrating some their portable...

Cook wrote the following in the email he sent out to CNBC:
"As you know we don’t give mid-quarter updates and we rarely comment on moves in...

It seems that some Apple Watch Sport owners have been finding that their watch has been showing signs of wear and tear after just a few months, according to AppleInsider.
Several Reddit threads have appeared recently in which Apple Watch Sport owners have complained that the Apple logo has disappeared from the back of their watch, and in some cases scratches have also been noticed around the text.

The Apple person who spoke to the watch owner apparently wanted to know all about where they...
According to AppleInsider, Major League Baseball is to allow coaches and team personnel to wear their Apple Watches in the dugout during MLB games, but cell phones and other electronic devices are still not permitted.

Apple is expected to release this year's new iPhones and iPads on September 9, and that's when the much-rumored iPad Pro is also believed to finally make its appearance. Sources speaking to 9to5Mac report that the bigger-sized iPad will have a higher resolution screen and could feature an optional stylus with Apple Force Touch.
The information is coming from analyst Ming Chi-Kuo from KGI Securities, who claims that the Force Touch stylus support could be used either for Apple's own pen or for third-party solutions, such as the enhanced Pencil from Paper’s FiftyThree. Apple has already built the Force Touch technology into its new MacBook computers, so it makes sense for the new iPad and iPhone to get it, as well.
The analyst believes the iPad Pro will go into production between...
