Apple offering battery replacements for iPhone 6s models with 'unexpected shutdown issues' (Updated)

I have had this happen multiple times to my 6s plus, which I got at the beginning of November 2015. Only the 6s is included in the replacement program. Has anyone else with a 6s plus had this issue?.

Apple ends development of wireless routers

Hopefully third-party router support for Time Machine will come in some fashion or another — it’s possible Apple may partner with specific manufacturers to add support.
Of course, Time Machine backups to directly connected hard drives will continue to work, so Apple isn’t necessarily abandoning Time Machine itself as a backup system, and macOS Server still has a Time Machine server component as well, so that’s an option for anybody setting up a home network.

Apple ends development of wireless routers

So what happens with the Apple backup system, Time Machine if Time Capsules are no longer made? Will Apple let third party routers support Time Machine? Airplay was very cool it took no skills to use.

Apple ends development of wireless routers

Yup, I’ll definitely give you that one — as routers the Airport lineup was falling FAR behind, and really wasn’t up to par even when it came to things like QoS for properly handling/prioritizing VoIP/Wi-Fi Calling features. It was basically time for Apple to fish or cut bait on these things.
On the other hand, AirPlay capabilities in the Extreme line will be missed, and while I’ve been hoping Apple will release an inexpensive client-only AirPlay device — especially after the demise of the third-generation Apple TV — I’ve been getting the feeling that AirPlay as an audio solution is on the decline, and possibly something Apple isn’t all that interested in any more.
Third-party AirPlay speakers were always on the expensive side, and most had serious performance issues in the first couple of generations of products. For most users who only need to stream to a single speaker, Bluetooth has filled that requirement much more effectively, and I suspect Apple is willing to simply cede the market to Sonos for “whole home” audio, especially now that Apple Music is integrated. Sonos is much pricier, but there’s no doubt that Sonos has figured out how to make it work very well, although unfortunately with that you’re living in Sonos’ UI, not Apple’s.

Chicken & egg, perhaps, but the Airports of the last 2-3 iterations have been highly slower than competitive products…so no wonder sales were small. I still like the Airplay option of the Express line for easy device play-thru, but the Extreme/TC line certainly needs discontinuing.

Report: Apple's video strategy has Hollywood confused

And there are those who still say that Apple without Steve has not lost a step. As each year now goes by, it seems less & less like Apple knows where to go next or how to get there…becoming just another run-of-the-mill tech company.
I love the Apple TV but the lack of true consumer options in programming (not linked to cable subscriptions) and the almost legalese approach to searching for any type of content (what is and is not searchable), makes it feel no better than Roku, Chromecast, etc.

Report: Apple's video strategy has Hollywood confused

If the new TV App represents their best effort, an unnecessary and time consuming extra layer to select a TV show or movie… then Roku can rest easy ;-)

Apple begins sale of 'SIM-free' unlocked iPhone 7 models in the U.S.

You shouldn’t have any issues on most international GSM carriers — the SIM-free iPhone appears to be the same model that’s sold by Apple internationally as well. Apple actually maintains a list of compatible carriers and LTE frequencies at http://www.apple.com/iphone/LT…

Would I have an issue using a SIM Free, US iPhone overseas?  Currently I purchase local SIMs when I travel abroad.

Ok, the cool factor of Apple setting up it’s headquarters in the iconic location for Pink Floyd’s “Animals” album cover is off the scale.

Apple releases iTunes 12.5.1

Ok already found a bug in 12.5.1 i think.  Wondering if someone else can verify.  I was in the middle of downloading some music and updating my library etc and I was on 12.5.  Now i have 12.5.1.  When i click on download for a song whether clicking the icon or right click menu option of download, itunes jumps over to the browse screen.  So… this is broken for me.  Let me know if anyone else can check this please.

Apple facing class-action lawsuit over lack of iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus stock for Upgrade Program

The courts have better things to do that deal with whiny consumers who can’t get an iPhone on launch day… like… hearing cases about exploding Note 7’s causing injury and/or property damage.  Ridiculous.
