It's been a busy week on the Apple news front this week, sadly for all the wrong reasons. A email controversy and antitrust investigations in the EU made for some very poor Apple PR. We did, however, learn a bit more about Apple's potential plans for a folding phone, a new iMac, and the Back to School promotion this week. Here's all the Apple news you should have read this week.


Hey Email AppSource: Hey

Undoubtedly the biggest story of the week was the app fiasco. An email app that was mistakenly admitted to the App Store even though it does not allow users to purchase the $99 subscription required through in-app-purchases. Apple has since frozen updates on the app and has threatened to remove it if the issue isn't fixed. Hey were not pleased, to say the least.
