This just in: Amazon thinks it's a platform. According to Bloomberg, Amazon has ordered Apple TV and Google Chromecast devices out of its stores because they aren't compatible with Amazon's own Prime television subscription content.
Apple announced on Wednesday it was launching Apple Music, iTunes Movies, and iBooks in China, a significant expansion in digital media in the world's largest market. Apple Music in China will be priced well below the U.S. price, at just 10 CNY, or $1.57 per month. Apple Music will also offer the same 90 day free trial offered in other markets.
Google Maps joined the Apple Watch bandwagon Tuesday. An update to the Google Maps client for iOS slipped in an Apple Watch app along with new comparison feature for different travel modes.
The rooms in your home aren't acoustically designed to make speakers sound their very best. My rooms aren't either. It's for this reason that Sonos has been hard at work developing Trueplay, an innovative technology that will allow us to use our iPhones and iPads to automatically tune our Sonos speakers for the rooms and locations in which we place them.
If you have a new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, you may be itching to play with 3D Touch, the whole-screen implementation of Force Touch that comes in the new devices. We put together a list of ten apps to make it easy for you to check it out.
iPhone 6s shipped on Friday, and the first thing we did (after setting up our new devices, of course) was test out iPhone 6 cases to make sure they fit. The iPhone 6s is 0.2 mm thicker than the iPhone 6—case manufacturers have been quick to say iPhone 6 cases will fit iPhone 6s, but we wanted to test it for ourselves.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere teased an upcoming promotional offer for iPhone 6s that would let some customers get Apple's new newest device for as little as $5 per month. Part of the company's JUMP on Demand plan, Mr. Legere tweeted that users who turn in an iPhone 6 or other device can get an iPhone 6s for $5, $10, or $15 per month.
Along with iOS 9, Apple released watchOS 2.0 for the Apple Watch on Monday following an unexpected delay that prevented its rollout along side iOS 9 last week. The update improves overall watch performance, and adds support for native third-party apps.
Along with iOS 9, Apple released iTunes 12.3 on Wednesday. The update for the media management and streaming music app added two-factor authentication support for Apple IDs, along with iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan support.
Earlier today Apple sent notes to various outlets announcing that watchOS 2 would not be released today due to a last-minute bug they found. Developer James Thomson took to Twitter to say that he might well have been the one to find the bug.
