Yesterday, 04:38 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<a href="http://www.tech21.co...com">Tech21</a>today announced that its Evo Mesh Sport and Evo Elite case lineup for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are now available exclusively through the Apple Store and Apple Online Store. The new Evo Mesh Sport is the first iPhone case to identically match the Apple Watch sport band colors, in blue, green, pink, smokey black and white, while the new Evo Elite has a scratch-resistant aluminum finish. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/07/Evo-Mesh-iPhone-6-Cases-800x759.jpg" alt="Evo Mesh iPhone 6 Cases" width="800" height="759" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-456582" /> <br/> Both of the new Evo cases for iPhone feature Tech21's impact-absorbing material FlexShock, which is capable of withstanding drops up to 6.6 feet and is both thinner and lighter than many competing cases. The cases also provide full access to all of the iPhone's ports and buttons, with corner and edge encasing and a raised screen bezel for added protection. <br/> <br/> The new Evo Elite case can be purchased in space gray, silver and gold for $49 for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, while the new Evo Mesh Sport case is available in blue, green, pink, smokey black and white for $39 for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Apple notifies developers of App Store price changes and...

Today, 02:38 AM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

screen-shot-2015-07-07-at-10-18-45-pm.pn

Apple has sent an email to app developers notifying them that over the next 36 hours several countries will see App Store prices change. Four markets will see price increases: Mexico, South Africa, South Korea, and Turkey. Developers will also now be able to choose from two new pricing tiers in some countries.

img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a

Developers selling their apps in the South Korean App Store will see price increases to add a 10% value-added tax. For those software makers living outside of that country, Apple will pay the tax on their behalf. However, those based in South Korea will be responsible for the payment themselves.

Customers subscribing to recurring services in three of the four countries mentioned above will need to resubscribe to those services due to price increases. In Mexico customers will simply be charged the new price automatically without the need to resubscribe.

Finally, new pricing tiers have been added in Turkey, Mexico, South Africa, Russia, Indonesia, and India. Apps already using “Alternate Tier A” and “Alternate Tier B” pricing options in China will automatally have the same setting applied in the new countries as well.

All of these changes are scheduled to be completed by Thursday morning (on Pacific time). You can read the full letter below.

Hi [Developer],

We sometimes need to update prices on the App Store whenever taxes or foreign exchange rates change. Within the next 36 hours, prices will increase in the following App Store territories:

  • Mexico
  • South Africa
  • South Korea
  • Turkey

Purchases on the South Korean App Store now include a value-added tax (VAT) of 10 percent. If you’re a developer based outside of South Korea, we’ll pay the VAT that we’ll be collecting for you. If you’re a developer based in South Korea, you’re still responsible for paying the VAT.

Because of the price increases, customers with auto-renewable subscriptions on the South African, South Korean, and Turkish App Store will need to resubscribe. However, although the prices are also changing for subscriptions on the Mexican App Store, we won’t interrupt those.

We’ll send an email to your subscribers in these territories shortly before their subscription renews to let them know that the price of their existing subscription will increase. The email also has a link that will let customers resubscribe, or in Mexico, turn their subscription off.

In addition, we’re also adding two new low-price tiers, Alternate Tier A and Alternate Tier B, for the Indian, Indonesian, Mexican, Russian, South African, and Turkish App Store. We’ll update prices for existing apps and In-App Purchases that already use the Alternate Tier A and Alternate Tier B price tiers on the Chinese App Store.

You’ll be able to review the new prices in the updated price-tier matrix in Rights and Pricing in My Apps within the next 36 hours.

Have any questions? Get in touch.

The App Store team

Apple launches new webpage to detail how it tests accesso...

Yesterday, 06:12 PM

<p><img title="Apple launches new webpage to detail how it tests accessories sold in its retail stores" class=" size-large wp-image-387920 aligncenter" src="https://9to5mac.file...ng?w=704&h=328"alt="apple-tested-cases" width="704" height="328" /></p>
<p>Yesterday we revealed that Apple was <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...ies/">revampingthe third-party accessory selection</a> in its retail locations with new boxes designed by Apple itself. Apple has recently <a href="http://store.apple.com/us/accessories/apple-tested-cases">launched a new webpage</a> that showcases the testing that all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch cases are required to go through before they are sold in an Apple Store.</p>
<p><span id="more-387919"></span><div class="inlinead"><a href="http://rss.buysellad...6&c=1911865699"target="_blank"><img src="http://rss.buysellads.com/img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a715efcc79f88&a=1436298196&c=1911865699" border="0" alt="" /></a></div></p>
<p>Apple first notes that it analyzes the design of the case to ensure that all ports and buttons are still easily accessible and that the case design is strong enough for day-to-day use. Apple then tests to make sure the case does not interfere with the camera on the iPhone in any way.</p>
<p>Next, Apple says that acoustics are tested for each and every case to ensure that audio, including music, voice calls, and FaceTimes, is unaffected by the case. Apple also tests how the case affects the sensors of an iPhone, including sensors for ambient light, Touch ID, and more. Apple says that the sensors should with the same with the case on or off. Finally, Apple tests the cellular and wireless capabilities of the device with the case on. Also included in this testing is Apple Pay.</p>

Banks in the U.K. Gearing Up for Apple Pay Launch as Sant...

Yesterday, 06:04 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Apple Pay in the United Kingdom has yet to officially launch, but some banks are preparing for the upcoming release of the payments service and have begun allowing customers to register their cards for use with Apple Pay. <br/> <br/> Several Santander customers <a href="http://forums.macrum...173/page-11">onthe <em>MacRumors</em> forums</a> have been able to successfully add their cards to Passbook for use with Apple Pay, making the cards available on both their iPhones and their Apple Watches. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/07/santanderapplepay.jpg" alt="santanderapplepay" width="600" height="561" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-456603" /> <br/> Customers registering their cards are also receiving <a href="http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/ios-8-4-and-apple-pay-in-the-uk.1896173/page-11#post-21558607">confirmation emails</a> from Santander, informing them that they're now able to use Apple Pay. As of the time of writing, customers have not yet tested the Apple Pay service at a location that accepts Apple Pay. One customer <a href="http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/ios-8-4-and-apple-pay-in-the-uk.1896173/page-11#post-21558541">was told</a> the bank's system is not live and that customers who were able to mistakenly register early would be de-registered, so it is not clear if the registered cards will be able to be used to make purchases. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/07/applepayavailablesantander.jpg" alt="applepayavailablesantander" width="700" height="399" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-456604" /> <br/> Activating a Santander card with Apple Pay at this time requires U.K. users to set their region to U.S., add a card, and change their region back to U.K., at which point the card remains available in Passbook. It's clearly a workaround, but a sign that banks are preparing to accept Apple Pay in the near future. <br/> <br/> Other banks, like MBNA and Nationwide, are giving error messages like "Contact Card Issuer" and "Your Issuer Does Not Yet Offer Support." <br/> <br/> It is not clear exactly when Apple Pay will become officially available in the United Kingdom, but during its Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple said the payments service <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/06/08/apple-pay-uk-support/">would launch in July</a>. Recently released employee training <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/07/04/apple-pay-expected-to-go-live-in-the-u-k-on-july-14th/">documents</a> have suggested the launch could come next week, on Tuesday, July 14. 250,000 merchants are expected to support Apple Pay in the U.K. when it is released.<br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/a2.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://adchoice.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/ach.htm"><img src="http://adchoice.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/ach.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/a2t.img" border="0"/><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi2.feedsportal.com/r/233194368586/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/47ea680c/sc/28/a2t2.img" border="0"/><img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/35070/f/648326/s/47ea680c/sc/28/mf.gif' border='0'/><div class="feedflare">

Nobody’s really sure what to do with wearables like the Apple Watch, and we don’t just mean in the “How does this improve my life?” sense of it. Safety and cheating concerns are putting it on a lot of people’s
