Apple Online Store expands to India
Tim Cook tweeted that Apple is expanding its online stores to cover India from next week, which also brings improved support for Apple Products as well as the potential for Apple Certified Refurbished products. It will be interesting to see if Apple adjusts their pricing in the country or emphasises different lines to their other international stores.
iOS 14.2 Beta released to developers
Its interesting that we’re skipping right to 14.2, with two competing theories that 14.1 is simply reserved for any last minute bug fixes and doesn’t need developer input, while Jon Prosser previously mentioned that there would be APIs required by the new iPhone 12 & Pro models which would be preloaded at the factory with 14.1.
So far, developers have discovered the addition of Shazam Music Recognition in Control Centre as well as a feature called ‘Person Detection”. When activated, users can use Magnifier to determine the distance to any nearby person.
There are also updates to Music controls in Control Centre with recommendations and a new Apple Watch App icon.
