Pablo Escobar's brother suesPablo Escobar's brother Robert is suing Apple for $2.3 billion. The lawsuit claims a FaceTime security flaw put Robert's life in danger. Apple is no stranger to frivolous lawsuits, but a new suit from... Pablo Escobar's brother might take the cake. In a story that was seemingly lifted straight out of The Onion, the brother of the most ruthless and infamous drug lord in history is alleging that a security deficiency on his iPhone X almost ended up killing him. According to the suit, Robert Escobar alleges that a mysterious man named Diego was able to figure out Escobar's address via a FaceTime call. Following that, Diego started sending threatening letters to his house, ultimately forcing him to move. According to the lawsuit, which was first brought to light by TMZ, Escobar claims that moving...

Apple says coronavirusApple on Monday said that due to the coronavirus outbreak, it is cutting its sales expectations for the current quarter. Last month, Apple projected record revenue for this quarter of between $63... billion and $67 billion, The Wall Street Journal reports. The coronavirus outbreak originated in Wuhan, China, and stores and factories across the country were shuttered in order to try to contain the virus. Wuhan is home to two of Apple's top 200 suppliers. Most of Apple's products are assembled in China, and the company said there will be a temporary global shortage of iPhones, since factory closures hindered production. China is the world's second-largest economy, and demand is down in the country for Apple products. Apple is the first major U.S. company to outline ways the coronavirus outbreak...

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/Getty Images for Discovery Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is wildly outspoken, and he's never been shy to criticize the company he helped build. This week, he told... Bloomberg that Apple should have been broken up a long time ago. He's not necessarily talking about government regulators stepping in the way Elizabeth Warren wants, though. Rather, he seems to be talking about building an environment where engineers like himself are free to work on their own. Here's the full quote: "I wish Apple on its own has split off a long time ago and spun off independent divisions to far away places and let them work independently, like Hewlett Packard did when I was there." Apple seems to be doing pretty well as a monolithic entity, though You might note that HP was the...

8 Jony Ive parodies to helpJony Ive is just too easy to parody.  Apple announced the longtime chief design officer's departure from the company on Thursday. In a statement, the company said Ive will launch his own design firm... with Apple as his main client.  In the last decade, Ive has been particularly memorable for putting minimalism on a pedestal, explaining designs from the austere confines of a white background, and narrating product releases with his impossibly buttery voice.  Jony Ive can finally come out of that white room he's been held in for three decades — Alissa Walker (@awalkerinLA) June 27, 2019

Apple executive responds toOver the last few days, some iPad Pro owners have taken to the web to complain about subtle but noticeable bends in their iPad Pros. Of course, it goes without saying that if you spend a minimum of... $800 on a brand new tablet, the last thing you want to see is an aesthetic imperfection. Apple earlier this week confirmed that some iPad Pros will exhibit a slight bend, while also emphasizing that the bend is simply a normal part of the manufacturing process and that it will not get worse with time. Put simply, Apple doesn't consider iPad Pro units with a slight bend to be defective. In the wake of Apple's admission, a MacRumors reader named Craig emailed Tim Cook about the issue. Craig subsequently received a reponse back from Dan Riccio, Apple's Senior VP of hardware engineering. Riccio...

Apple is no longer the biggestOver the past few years, Apple shares have been known to fluctuate wildly and seemingly without explanation from time to time. Still, the roller coaster Apple shares have taken investors on in recent... months has arguably been unprecedented. Suffice it to say, investing in Apple is most definitely not for the faint of heart. Less than four months ago, Apple shares were flying high. In early August, Apple shares topped $207 share, and thus made Apple the first trillion-dollar company in history. Following that, Apple shares continued to rise to newfound heights. Just seven weeks ago, Apple was trading at more than $231 a share. Flash forward to today and Apple shares are seemingly in a free fall. Amidst reports that iPhone XR sales are falling below expectations, not to mention Apple's...

Google reportedly pays AppleWhen Apple first introduced the iPhone, the decision to use Google as the default search engine on mobile Safari was essentially a no-brainer. After all, Google was unquestionably the dominant search... engine at the time and Microsoft's Bing wouldn't even arrive on the scene until June of 2009. Despite increased competition with respect to search over the past few years, there's no denying that Google is still the best search engine on the planet. That said, Apple has for some time now let iOS users change the default search engine on mobile Safari to Bing or DuckDuckGo. Google's prominence in mobile Safari, though, isn't a benefit Apple bestows upon the search giant free of charge. On the contrary, Google pays a lot of money to enjoy its status as the default search engine on the iPhone and...
