Fantastical has just released its popular iPhone and iPad calendar app for the Apple Watch. The Verge writes that Todoist’s app looks to be better suited to the Apple Watch than Apple’s own built-in calendar app.
For example, Fantastical displays twice as many days of events as the Apple calendar’s maximum of seven days. Fantastical also comes with both an app and a Glance that is very simple to use, displaying either the next event on your calendar or the next item on your to-do list, depending on which is due sooner.
Also, just as with the iPhone and iPad Fantastical apps, it integrates support from Apple’s Reminders with calendar events. You can use Force Touch or dictation to add events and reminders. The Verge says that Fantastical also displays the words parsed before the...
Here's a bit of rare Apple news... a recall! Of course, it's not one of their iconic iDevices, but is actually one of their new Beats products. It turns out the new Beats Audio Pill XL speaker has a slight fire hazard risk, so Apple is no issuing a full recall and offering a refund for those who purchased the device. In order to identify the Beats Pill XL (in case you aren't quite sure what you own?), you will simply need to find the the words "beats pill XL" on the handle, and the Beats "b" logo on the speaker grille. The Beats Pill XL came in black, metallic sky, pink, titanium and white color options.
Apple is specifically asking users to stop using the device, so it must be a fairly serious issue. Owners can head over to the link below in order to facilitate the process of getting...

One whole year after Apple announced HomeKit the first products that can be used with it have arrived. Engadget writes that the first wave of products are by Lutron and Insteon, with other manufacturers such as Elgato, Ecobee, and iHome about to bring out their own products for HomeKit.
Once all the products are on the market, you should be able to have a HomeKit system with programmable lights, plugs, energy and climate sensors, thermostats, and so on. That’s the whole point of Apple’s HomeKit standard, to enable a wide array of different devices to work together, with the homeowner being able to control it all from their iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, and also have the means to use voice control via Siri.
Lutron’s Caseta Wireless Smart Bridge gives you control of the lights, shades...
It turns out that the Apple Watch is a much bigger success than anyone would have guessed. In fact, it will end up as Apple's most successful initial product launch in the history of the company. According to the gathered data, Apple received 7 million orders in total and shipped 2.5 million watches so far. Analytics suggest that Apple will likely deliver about 5 million Apple Watches by the end of the quarter, which is twice what was predicted by numerous market research firms.
Here are a few statistics to help put into perspective just what a blockbuster start the Apple Watch had:
The first iPod sale in 2001 started off with only 125,000 units in its first quarter
When the iPhone launched in 2007, Apple initially sold just 1.1 million units
In 2010, Apple launched the iPad whose...
Apple's 2015 WWDC will kickoff with a keynote on next Monday, and you will be able to follow the live stream, just as it happened in previous editions. According to recent reports, the company is expected to unveil a new music streaming service and a revamped iTunes Radio service, among others.
Now, fresh intel coming from well-connected Recode publication suggests that Apple won't be releasing its rumored subscription TV service next week. Peter Kafka with the publication says the following:
"The Cupertino technology company has told network executives the planned unveiling will be postponed because Apple has yet to finalize the licensing deals. Industry executives predict Apple’s Web TV offering may not launch until later this year, or in 2016. Technology and money issues remain...
Tech Crunch reports that Apple has made several changes to the way in which apps are organized and featured in the App Store. Apple has quietly got rid of some of the algorithmically generated lists that highlighted new and popular titles, such as the “New,” “What’s Hot,” and “All iPhone (Free & Paid).”
Instead, editorially curated lists are now the focal point, being introduced for the first time ever in the Games apps section.
Tech Crunch says that the “All iPhone (Free & Paid)” section was most likely removed due to the practice of some app developers giving their games titles beginning with “AAA” so that their apps could appear first on the list.
The new categories now featured in the App Store include “Best New Games” and “All-Time Greats,” which are all compiled by Apple...
According to The Wall Street Journal, via MacRumors, Apple is set to debut its much vaunted streaming music service at the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 8, when it will also be launching the new version of iTunes Radio.
The new Beats-based service will cost $10 per month, for which you’ll get unlimited on-demand streaming. Unlike Spotify, there will be no free-to-listen service, just the flat $10 fee.
Apple will also be offering free music via its revamped iTunes Radio, which will have several new channels that have been created by various DJs (including Zane Lowe, who recently left BBC Radio in order to work with Apple) who will also be hosting their curated shows.
The Wall Street Journal says that the radio push is aimed mainly at listeners outside of the US, with both...
MacRumors reports today that a video message sent by Apple’s retail chief Angela Ahrendts to the company’s retail employees has been obtained by 9to5 Mac.
In the video Ahrendts talks about the forthcoming Apple retail store launch of the Apple Watch, and tells employees to be “above and beyond ready” for the launch. Apple’s VP of retail operations, Jim Bean, was seen telling the retail store employees about a forthcoming new “Reserve and Pickup” feature.
Customers will be able to use the Reserve and Pickup feature to check with the Apple Online store every day at 8:00 a.m. local time to see if the Apple Watch that they want to buy is in stock at their local store. If the chosen watch is available, the customer can then reserve the watch and choose when they want to pick it up. Apple...
The big news this morning is slightly off topic, but is highly relevant to tech fans. Microsoft just officially announced the release date for Windows 10. That date is July 29th. Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for folks who currently own a legitimate copy of Windows 7 or higher.
For anyone who needs/wants to purchase a retail copy of Windows 10, the pricing info on the regular retail version of the OS was accidentally leaked by Newegg prior to Microsoft's official announcement. As you can see in the image above, the Home version will be a bit more than previous editions of Windows Home, as it clocks in at $109.99. The Pro version will be a bit cheaper than some of the older editions, however. It is priced at $149.99.
Of course, this info was leaked prior to the Microsoft...
