  2. Apple’s iPhones and iPads break sales records in Q1 2014, still fails to meet analyst expectations

    Apple announced its earnings for the first fiscal quarter of 2014 on Monday, and the numbers being thrown about were nothing short of staggering.

  4. Apple relaunches the ancient iPhone 4 in India to gain market share

    Apple has never been one to bend to some users' wishes to launch a low cost version of its iPhone, even at the risk of hemorrhaging customers to cheaper alternatives on Android such as Samsung. Clearly, the luxurious 'oomph' factor that the Apple brand exudes is too precious for them to give up in exchange for some extra sales. The much rumored 'cheap' iPhone 5C proved to be anything but cheap, and was an incredible anticlimax to all the prelaunch buzz about it being an iPhone anyone and everyone could afford. As a result of its policies, Apple has traditionally had middling sales in highly price sensitive markets, especially in emerging economies like India. As a result, they have found a compromise, and that's by relaunching the completely outdated iPhone 4 in India at a low price to compensate for the sales it's been losing by its pricing strategies.

  6. Apple to pay $32.5 million to settle in-app purchases lawsuit

    There had been a furor about the ease with which in-app purchases could be used to rack up huge credit card bills with little warning about it a few months ago. The proliferation of freemium apps has led to in-app purchases being more common than ever, and it made it more likely than ever for anyone to max out someone’s credit card on the App Store with in-app purchases (inadvertently or not) with little chance of a refund. This became a systemic issue when kids using their parents’ iPads ended up racking up bills as much as $2600 according to recent reports, and a lawsuit filed against Apple in the Federal Trade Commission over this regard has ended with Apple having to pay $32.5 million to settle the case.
