A year ago almost to the day, the Apple Store app for iPhone added support for Passbook integrated Apple Store gift cards that you could buy and send via email. Apple has now pushed an update to the app that adds the feature for some new countries, including the UK, Canada and Australia. Perfect for that long distance holiday gift.
Apple noted earlier this month that that iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will arrive in Italy, Russia, Span and more than 25 countries on Friday, October 25th. Countries on the other side of the globe are seeing their local Apple online store go offline in advance of the release, according to 9to5Mac.
Jessica Lessin, formerly of the Wall Street Journal, soon to be launching a new tech site, talks to Rene about Apple's new SVP of Apple Stores, Angela Ahrendts, iPhone 5c pricing, an Amazon phone, the Nest Protect, and the internet of things.
We'd previously heard rumors of Apple expanding the iPhone trade-in program to the UK, and today it appears to have gone live. Indeed, on the Apple Store UK site you're now able to price up a trade-in for a number of different iPhone versions, running right up to the iPhone 5.
Demand for the iPhone 5s is high, supplies are still low, but Apple has made available once more in-store collection for online purchases. The facility originally went live about a week ago following Apple's record opening weekend of sales, but quickly disappeared as supplies dried up once more. For now though, if you're still trying to get your hands on a new iPhone 5s, it's definitely worth taking a look.
Ahead of today's iPhone event, the Apple Store has gone down. This is standard practice for Apple on the day of events, and the store will undoubtedly be back online later today after the announcement of the new hardware, expected to be the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.
We're not long out from the big WWDC 2013 keynote kicking off at Moscone West in San Francisco, and the Apple Store is down. In just about every language imaginable, this message is greeting visitors to the online Apple Store right about now. Customarily, the Apple Store goes down right before new products are added to it. So, does this mean that some new hardware is imminent?
During the night, when a lot of you were sleeping, the Apple Store went down. Sadly, there's no new goodies to report, but when it came back up it's loaded and ready to go for Apple's Fathers Day promo. With Fathers Day coming up, what better way to show your appreciation than with something from Apple.
Whenever Apple does something, hoards of excited people usually follows. Today's opening of the very first Apple Store in the German capital, Berlin, was absolutely no exception. As is tradition, huge crowds of eager Apple fans queued up for as long as 10 hours prior, according to the Berlin Morgenpost.
A clear glass storefront surrounded by a paneled façade. Rectangular recessed lighting units. Cantilevered shelves. Rectangular tables arranged in a line in the middle of the store parallel to the walls and extending from the storefront to the back of the store. Yep, that's an Apple Store alright. And that's the wording that Apple included in their trademark application for the Apple Store design, inarguably as much of an icon for Apple as the patented designs of their products. The trademark was granted last week by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
