Report details the fall of GT Advanced in Apple's quest for sapphire

Apple's partnership with GT Advanced Technologies was a marriage that seemed to have been made in tech heaven. Apple, consumer of a quarter of the world's sapphire just for the iPhone's camera lens and Touch ID fingerprint cover, wanted more of the scratch resistant material to cover its smartphones and GTAT wanted to grow and transition away from the money-losing solar panel business. Tempted, GTAT signed a deal with Apple and eventually found itself bankrupt, dishing the dirty laundry of the supplier relationship with Apple in the process.

Vainglory review: Intense strategy and gorgeous graphics await you!

Vainglory made a big splash during Apple's summer event announcing iOS 8 and the new Metal API.

Beats Music might find itself bundled with iOS in 2015

A future release of iOS might just come with an extra app bundled inside: Beats Music. When Apple bought Beats back in May, many wondered what the end game was. And while the headphone business is presently far more lucrative for Beats than their streaming music service, finding it pre-installed on millions of iPhones might just change the calculus.

How to get your child off an old Apple ID and onto Family Sharing's 'Ask to Buy'

How to get your child off an old Apple ID and onto Family Sharing's 'Ask to Buy'

So you want to enable Family Sharing's "Ask to Buy" to buy feature but your child is on an old Apple ID and you can't find a way to go back and change their birthday to make it work? You're not alone. And while there's no easy fix, there is a way to work around it. As long as you've got an open on your Family Sharing account, you can swap your child's old Apple ID to a new child ID, and get Ask to Buy working the way you want it to.

It's important to note that this process can't convert your child's existing Apple ID into a child ID. It creates a new Apple ID and transfers all their data across. That means they won't lose any backups or purchases, but there are still some downsides. For one, they'll have a new email address, which means a new ID for mail, iMessage, and FaceTime. (You can forward email and enable multiple addresses for iMessage and FaceTime.)
