Apple has broken just about every record going for a business in terms of sustained growth. There obviously comes a time when it simply cannot sell more and more products as the market is saturated now.

There are also fewer people with enough disposable income to buy a new Apple product every year because those people are paying for others holding out their hands. :D

It's probably an advert on a free app you've got. Often with free apps you get these kinds of adverts and then if you pay for the app, they become advert-free.

Just ignore it.

Apple could drop their prices and give FASTER in store service with customer probs.
You have to phone for an appointment with the 'Genius Bar' which will take up to a couple of weeks.
You can book an appointment ONLINE but when you try they show, NO APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE.
More stores to assist customer problems would also help.
I have to travel about 20 miles to my nearest apple store.

I luv my Macbook Air but often need help with it.

I used to ask Crumbz but I think he got fed up with me being so fick.

A couple of weeks back my lap got into a drastic state caused by 2 malware locking onto it so I could do very little.

I foned a Indian guy recommended by apple techie, he came out and fixed it double quick and installed 2 adware systems.
he charges £60 /hour and it is 1 hour minimum.

I was satisfied .

You can find answers to most Apple issues online, Major. Apple stores are extremely busy simply because the product is so popular. As for price, you end up paying less in the long run as Apple products, the hardware and software, run for much longer.

I've donated my old iPhone 5S, which is several years old now, to my daughter and it runs the latest version of iOS perfectly and does almost everything my iPhone 7 Plus can do. So whilst it may have been pricey when I bought it a few years ago, it will function perfectly for many years.

My iPod Classic is coming up to 8 years old now and has been my music device in over a dozen cars in all weathers since then. It still looks brand new and is still supported in iTunes for updates and sync. I can still sell it for decent money.

Bearing in mind it contains a hard disk drive and has survived in more than a dozen cars in all weathers, I'd say that's a pretty decent piece of hardware.

I will never be owned.

Very expensive, yes. But it is the best laptop you can buy. The lack of ports is a load of bollocks - you can buy a separate dongle for when you need to actually plug something into it - but these days, the only people who need to plug things into their computers are Windows users.

The other 99% of the time when you don't need anything plugged into it, people will appreciate the sleek lines, clever design and light weight.

You can connect most things to a Mac via Bluetooth or WiFi these days.

iOS 10.2 has just been release. Loads of new enhancements for for the TV app (currently US only). Lots of enhancements to things like Emojis and tons of bug fixes.

It's a very big update so you'll need > 50% charge and/or your device plugged in to a power source.

Kerrrrrrrrrrrrchingggggggggg !


Apple has said customers who lose one of the new wireless Airpod earphones will be charged £65 for a replacement.


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-38340748

But it might be possible to develop features for wireless earphones in the future that would help users find a lost Airpod and avoid having to pay for a replacement.

"Apple could have a 'find-my-Airpod' feature," suggested Mr Fogg.

Had a quick play with Google Gboard keyboard on my iPhone and iPad. It's actually better than the stock iOS keyboard for most things!
