Last month we showed you what exactly Apple would cover under warranty for Apple Watch customers and now images of the replacement box for the device have emerged. As shown in the images above, Apple does not want Apple Watch straps shipped during the warranty process and requires only the device itself.

The images, posted to Twitter by Max Weisel, show the Apple Watch in a nice white box with Watch branding. It’s essentially a smaller version of the box that the Apple Watch comes in at the time of purchase.

Apple has said that for issues such as debris under the display, condensation in the heart rate sensor windows, and back cover repairs, it will give you a replacement unit for free, assuming you are still in complimentary one year of hardware repair coverage window. More details on what is and isn’t covered by warranty are available here. Apple has also warned that you should expect discoloration and deformation of Apple Watch bands over time, which could relate to the fact that it does not want users to ship bands with faulty Apple Watch units during the exchange process.

A video unboxing of the Apple Watch replacement box can be seen below:

OpenTV Files Lawsuit Against Apple Over Allegations iTune...

Yesterday, 09:27 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
itunesicon.jpgSoftware maker OpenTV has filed a patent lawsuit against Apple based on accusations that several of the company's products and services, including iTunes, infringe upon five of its patents related to streaming digital video. The civil suit was filed Tuesday in a U.S. District Court, and OpenTV is seeking undiclosed compensation for the alleged patent infringement, according to Re/code.
"OpenTV alleges that Apple’s iTunes software for downloading or streaming rented movies violates its patents for securely delivering media to consumer devices. The suit claims that other companies, including Apple rival Google, Cisco Systems and Disney, have licensed its technology."
In late February, a Tyler, Texas district court ordered Apple to pay $532.9 million to patent licensing firm Smartflash LLC in a separate iTunes-related lawsuit for infringing upon the Texas-based company's patents related to digital rights management, data storage and managing access through payment systems. Apple argued that Smartflash was exploiting the patent system and vowed to appeal the decision.

OpenTV was an early provider of interactive TV software used in millions of TV set-top boxes, according to the report, and the wholly owned subsidiary of The Kudelski Group now creates software for on-demand video services and digital video recorders. OpenTV's patents belong to a portfolio of more than 4,400 pending and issued patents related to the secure delivery of media.mf.gif

OpenTV files patent infringement suit against Apple over...

Apple is facing a lawsuit from OpenTV, a company that creates interactive television technology, over five patents the latter claims the Cupertino company violated in the iTunes software. The protected technology in question relates to how Apple streams movies from its servers to end users.

The suit claims this technology was legally licensed to other companies, including Microsoft and Google, but not Apple. OpenTV was named as a party in a separate lawsuit against Apple earlier this year. That suit dealt with video playback technology in iOS and OS X and other products, including iTunes and iAds.

Home Depot to Begin Supporting Apple Pay Following Retail...

Yesterday, 09:19 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
homedepot.jpgHome Depot plans to officially support Apple Pay in its home improvement stores following a retail system upgrade, reports Bloomberg. Though there's no timeline on when Apple Pay support will be introduced in Home Depot stores, a spokesperson said the payment service would be available after a revamp to the company's point-of-sale machines.

News of Home Depot's plans to support Apple Pay come following earlier reports suggesting the retailer was shutting off Apple Pay access in its stores. Home Depot has NFC-based terminals in its stores allowing for unofficial use of Apple Pay, but as of this morning, a customer discovered he could no longer use Apple Pay at Home Depot.

Contacting customer support resulted in a message stating that while Apple Pay was not supported in Home Depot stores, PayPal was, hinting that Home Depot may be choosing to promote PayPal over Apple Pay, but as it turns out, that's not the case. According to Bloomberg, Home Depot's NFC checkout terminals have been disabled as the company works on upgrading its point-of-sale system.

Many Home Depot stores continue to support checkout through Apple Pay using NFC payment terminals at this time, but access may be shut off in the coming weeks until Apple Pay officially launches at the retail chain. Home Depot will likely support Apple Pay both in its retail stores and through its iOS app.

With 2,000 stores across the United States, Home Depot will be the largest retailer to offer Apple Pay.mf.gif

Home Depot confirms plans to accept Apple Pay soon after...

Home Depot will soon officially gain support for Apple Pay after users this week noticed it had started quietly blocking the platform, the company tells Bloomberg.

Users have had success using Apple Pay at Home Depot stores since the service launched in October last year— Home Depot uses MasterCard Paypass terminals that technically support the NFC-based payments platform— but now the company appears to have stopped accepting it as it issues a statement touting rival PayPal. The company since confirmed, however, that it does plan to officially support Apple Pay following upgrades to its in-store hardware in the near future.

From Bloomberg:

The retailer is updating its systems and intends to offer Apple Pay after the upgrade is complete, Home Depot spokesman Steve Holmes said, without providing a timetable for the rollout. The chain, which currently accepts PayPal, also may add other kinds of mobile payment, he said.

Apple Pay will eventually come to all of Home Depot’s 2000 stores, which the report points out would make it the largest retailer pushing the iPhone payments.
