Apple’s larger-than-life iPad Pro with retina display finally hits retail shelves – this week, and with claims it might one day be able to fully replace the desktop floating in the wings, the tablet looks set for a fruitful launch.
Those who love a little retail therapy might want to get themselves over to the iOS App Store, where Apple has introduced a new dedicated category for all things Shopping.
Earlier this week a new report surfaced, drawing on data provided by Slice Intelligence, that claimed sales of Apple’s smartwatch had fallen a full 90-percent – since the product’s launch back in April.
It’s fair to say that not being able to actually purchase Apple’s latest products in-store, is a first for the company.
A decision that was initially credited to recently appointed retail chief, Angela Ahrendts, despite the long wait for those who didn’t manage to make the pre-order rush on April 10 to be able to go in-store and buy the smartwatch for themselves – a new report claims that the company will be adding a little more to each shopper’s buying experience for the Watch, when it eventually does go on sale.
Slice Intelligence is just the latest analyst body to take a shot at predicting how many Apple Watch units Apple may have shifted, since the device’s online-only debut on April 24.
As expected, Apple has posted its earnings results for the second quarter of 2015.
While we’re on the subject of Apple packaging …
Sure, we’ve already seen that jewellery-style charger box that the $10,000 (starting) Apple Watch Edition will arrive in. And we’ve even detailed the slightly less-quality packaging that is set to accompany the regular Apple Watch (Stainless Steel).
But what about the packaging for Apple Watch Sport?
It might sound like common sense for a company to build its products to order, rather than manufacture them en mass and hope for the best. In the case of the iPhone and iPad, Apple usually opts for the “mass-production” route and hopes to sell in volume thereafter.
Apple Watch however may be a little different.
