Apple has kept their word, which was promised at their iPad & Mac event last Thursday. iOS 8.1 is now publicly available with new features including Apple Pay, iCloud Photo Library, and additional Continuity features. Apple Pay is supported by Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards with American Express, Bank of America, Capital One, Chase, Citi, and Wells Fargo as launch partner banks.
While iOS 8.1 is not going to be officially released to the public until Monday. Many reports are saying that Apple’s Photos app within the web-based iCloud website has now gone live, which is for those using the iOS 8.1 beta.
It has been confirmed in a reported, that Apple will no longer and will soon remove products from the company Bose and also Fitbit, which have not found room to embraced Apple’s HealthKit platform. Which is from their retail channels, as they simply prepare to introduce the Apple Watch in early 2015, although that product and other fitness tracking devices are still available currently. But as for Bose, and if you like them, well, their products are getting ready to be pulled from Apple online store.
Apple’s newest and latest iPhone has launched weeks after an initial release in the U.S. and elsewhere. Several of Apple retail employees, dressed in blue t-shirts and jackets, simply lined up near the entrance of the store and cheered as the first customers were told and allowed into the store, which is something done typically when a new major product is released.
People who are about to simply sign up or who are already signed up for iCloud Beta, should simply visit the same URL, as one should see what has now come of the site. Having an all new or I should say ‘brand’ new webpage, which now shows off colorful yet gradient graphics, and a all new message which simply says “To use iCloud Photos on the web, upgrade your iOS device to iOS 8.1”.
I think it is safe to say that the company GT Advanced is dying of a bad disease and can’t find a proper cure. Today, it has been reported from AZ-Central that GT Advanced is seeking to shut down their building in Mesa, Arizona and they are giving their employees a heads-up, and had informed them that their will be a 727 person lay off (or in other words ‘fired’). This lay off is said to take place on December 15th.
Today, The Wall Street Journal has reported that another GT Advanced executive, COO or better known as Daniel Squiller, had sold $1.2 million of stock in May and “set up a plan under which he sold another $750,000 of shares over ensuing months before the company filed for bankruptcy.” courtesy of The Wall Street Journal.
Both new handsets will be available in a total of 69 countries and territories, which is by the end of the month. But, on to something that Apple has recently announced, a big thing is coming for 36 countries, which was announced today on October 13th, that their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets are coming to an additional 36 countries and territories. These places include Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa, which is suppose to be landing in those places at the near end of October.
Apple’s spokesman which is Chris Gaither, has recently told in a written statement to Reuters, and many other reporters that “we are focussed on preserving jobs in Arizona following GT’s surprising decision and we will continue to work with state and local officials as we consider our next steps”. After gaining a 1.4-million-square-foot facility, which was based in Arizona from a solar-panel producer, they paid out $113 million last year. So in other words, Apple basically leased the place to GT Advanced. One of the main ideal’s that Apple had was to own the plant and the equipment, while GT would focus on materiel and component productions.
