    Apple addresses why people are saying their iPhones with older batteries are running ‘slower’

    Because of a Reddit post and the loose interpretation of subsequent benchmark tests posted by Primate Labs’ John Poole, the “Apple throttles old iPhones” meme has reared its ugly head again.

    Apple has a history of choosing cash over startups

    Apple has more cash than any other tech company on the planet. Yet, that hasn’t translated into spending on acquisitions. Over the past five years, Apple has spent the least on M&A out of all the “Big Five” most valuable U.S. tech companies. That’s despite the fact that it is estimated to have more than $260 billion in cash and cash equivalents. So, is it buying… Read More

    Apple’s hand is down and its $1 trillion dream now rests with consumers

    As we head into the end of 2017, it’s pretty safe to say that Apple’s fate — barring any major issue with its phones — is now in the hands of its consumers.

Some devs even launched only on jailbroken phones, thumbing their noses at Apple’s walled… Read More
