Apple celebrates music every year by hosting the world’s biggest artists at their iTunes Festival in London.  This events starts on Monday, September 1st and ends on the September 30th.  Some of the sixty bands that will be there include Maroon 5, Sam Smith and 5 Seconds of Summer.  To watch the festival you can check out the free app on iTunes or on your Apple TV.  If you don’t have an Apple TV yet, there is an excellent deal running right now that gets you a free $25 gift card to the iTunes Store.

By purchasing the Apple TV through the Apple Store, you will receive a $25 gift card to the iTunes Store. This, unlike the Back to School promotion, lets you use the gift card to purchase music, movies, books, apps and more.  The deal ends on September 30th.

Earlier this year, a new Apple TV was rumored to come out with refreshed hardware and software.  Unfortunately it appears that the hardware update may be pushed back until 2015.  For software, the television box is expected to have access to more channels and its own App Store.

WSJ Confirms Fingerprint Sensor for iPhone 5S

Share this:

It is the morning of Apple’s second media event of the year (the first was WWDC back in June) and leaks are still coming out. Over the course of last night, the fingerprint scanner was confirmed to be true by two sources. First, the Wall Street Journal confirmed with people familiar with Apple’s plans that a fingerprint scanner would be on the iPhone 5S, but not the iPhone 5C.

Danny Yadron, the journalist, wrote this;
“Placing a finger on a computer or smartphone has long been proposed as a way to avoid the need for passwords to authenticate users of computers and other devices. People familiar with the matter said last week that Apple will include a fingerprint scanner on the more expensive of two iPhones it is expected to unveil Tuesday at an event at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters.”

The other source claiming the fingerprint scanner is real is an alleged user guide (finally in English) for the iPhone 5S. It shows the iPhone 5S running iOS 7 with a ring around the Home button and a blurb indicating that it is the Home button/Touch ID. Apple is expected, based primarily on this, to call the new fingerprint sensor the “Touch ID”.


Apple is expected to reveal two new iPhones (the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C), a software update for the Apple TV and the release date for iOS 7. Based on the blackout vacation days at Apple and AT&T, Apple is expected to release the iPhones on September 20. Also, iOS 7 is expected to be released on September 18, if history is likely to repeat itself (and for Apple, it usually does).
