Apple’s Japanese bond sale will raise more than...

Apple’s first ever Japanese bond sale will raise more than had been previously estimated. An SEC filing reveals that the sale will raise ¥250B ($2B), more than the ¥200 billion ($1.6B) which had been reported earlier.

Apple is selling the bonds in Japanese yen due to the extremely low interest rates in the country, with Apple offering a rate of just 0.35%, paid twice a year in June and December. Goldman Sachs, one of the two underwriters of the bond issue, said that the market would welcome the offering.

“It’s Apple’s first time issuing in yen. Their ratings, credit fundamentals and familiarity within the Japanese market are very high,” said a Goldman Sachs banker. “The outcome proves...

No new Apple TV at WWDC

Brian X. Chen, writing for the New York Times:

Yet one much ballyhooed device will be absent from the conference: a new Apple TV, Apple’s set-top box for televisions.

iOS, OS X, music, Swift, and more: What you should...

Apple’s WWDC keynote kicks off at 10am Pacific on Monday morning. Though the focus at the company’s developer conference is usually on the next versions of its flagship operating systems, Apple has used the stage at the Moscone Center in San Francisco to announce any number of things over the years.

To prepare you for the show, we’ve sifted through a few months of rumors to bring you the most credible stuff—this won’t all be correct, and we’re sure Apple has some surprises up its sleeve, but this is the basic information you should know going into the show on Monday.

iOS 9


If the rumors are true, iOS 9 could run on (and speed up) everything that currently runs iOS 8.

Since we first began hearing about iOS 9, word on the...

Almost all Apple Watches shipping within 2 weeks … but not this one

Apple has said that all Apple Watch orders placed during May will ship within two weeks, with one exception – and no prizes for guessing which.

All orders placed through May, with the sole exception of Apple Watch 42 mm Space Black Stainless Steel with Space Black Link Bracelet, will ship to customers within two weeks. At that time, we’ll also begin selling some models in our Apple Retail Stores.

This suggests retail store sales will begin around 18th June …

A horrible new PayPal policy opts you into getting...

The Washington Post:

PayPal users, this is for you.

The payments company is rolling out an update to its user agreement that threatens to bombard you with “autodialed or prerecorded calls and text messages” — and worse, by agreeing to the updated terms, you’re immediately opted in.

PayPal can even reach you at phone numbers that you didn’t provide. Through undisclosed means, PayPal says it has the right to contact you on numbers “we have otherwise obtained.”

I don’t get how these companies continue to add clauses like this. There are far too many geeks out there reading the EULAs and taking them apart word for word for companies like PayPal to get away with such egregious abuses of the information they gather on us.

Legendary hip-hop producer Robert Diggs, a.k.a The Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, is joining Boombotix as a creative director of sorts and working with the company to release a new collection of portable speakers that come with exclusive content from various artists.

We got the chance to ask RZA some questions about the new partnership and feel out his plans for using the speakers with embedded music releases as a platform beyond just selling speakers.

The idea comes from a collaboration between the musician and Boombotix back in 2014 that saw Wu-Tang Clan’s “A Better Tomorrow” album bundled with the...

AWT Review: BrydgeAir Aluminum Keyboard for iPad Air...

BrydgeAir Keyboard for iPad Air/Air 2. Photo ©2015, Steven Sande, All Rights Reserved

As you may recall from my days at TUAW and here at Apple World Today, I’ve reviewed a ton of keyboard cases, keyboard folios, and wireless keyboards made for use with the iPad. Today I’m looking at the BrydgeAir from Brydge Keyboards. It’s a $169 ($189 for gold finish) wireless keyboard for the iPad Air and iPad Air 2 that is decidedly different than some of the other keyboard covers and cases I’ve reviewed in the past.

Specifications

  • Material: Aluminum

  • Weight: 1.15 pounds (520g)

  • Battery life: 3 months

Design

The BrydgeAir is one of the most solid iPad keyboards I’ve had the pleasure to try. Machined out of a piece of aluminum, the keyboard has some heft, but it feels good. It’s held onto your iPad...

Apple has decided to pull its planned WWDC new Apple TV hardware announcement, according to a new claim. Apple planned to debut the new box at the June 8th kickoff keynote before making the decision to scrap the hardware and SDK introduction in mid-May, according to the new report:

The company planned as recently as mid-May to use the event to spotlight new Apple TV hardware, along with an improved remote control and a tool kit for developers to make apps for the entertainment device. But those plans were postponed partly because the product was not ready for prime time, according to two people briefed on the...

Apple Recalls Beats Pill XL Speakers As Fire Risk

An anonymous reader writes: Apple has released a voluntary recall announcement for the Beats Pill XL range of speakers, advising customers that the rechargeable device is a fire risk, and advising them to stop using the devices immediately. Apple bought the manufacturers out in 2014 after the successful release of the XL speaker range in November 2013. The announcement reads in part: "Because customer safety is the company’s top priority, Apple is asking customers to stop using their Beats Pill XL speakers. Customers who purchased a Beats Pill XL speaker should visit www.apple.com/support/beats-pillxl-recall for details about how to return their product to Apple, and how to receive an Apple Store credit or electronic payment of $325."

"Instead of revealing the true condition of the company and its prospects, defendants hid those facts from investors and chose to issue strong guidance and paint a picture of a bright future with a new mega-customer," the complai...
