Apple’s iOS 9 Could Herald A New Future For Older iPhones And iPads

Someone Build A Startup To Make Things Less On-Demand

techcrunch.com — Tech companies old and new are powering an on-demand revolution, letting us get everything from house cleaning, to lunch, to product, to almost literally everything where we want it, when we want it. Of course, there's a cost - a monetary one for users of these services, and, arguably, a long-term economic one on the supply-side.

Apple Watch Bands Show Up In Apple Retail Stores

techcrunch.com — Apple has indeed started putting Apple Watch inventory on sale for walk-in shoppers in its retail stores, for the first time since the Apple Watch officially launched.

Apple Researching Combined 2D/3D Glassesless Displays

techcrunch.com — Apple is looking into a way to provide both 3D and 2D images from the same display, without requiring any special ocular equipment like 3D glasses, according to a new patent application (via AppleInsider).
