Tech analyst, John Gruber, has a good reputation when it comes to leaking information about Apple devices. So when he says to expect the long-awaited Apple iWatch to finally see the light of day next month, there is a very good chance that it will actually happen. Apple is holding an event on September 9th that is expected to unveil the Apple iPhone 6. It is possible that the iWatch will also be introduced at that time.


By July of last year, Apple had trademarked the iWatch name in a number of countries. The wearable is expected to come out of the box with a number of sensors that will allow it to capture health-related metrics such as heart rate, blood pressure and possibly blood glucose readings. That information can be sent to Apple's Health app, where it will be analyzed. The app will debut on iOS 8.




Apple iBeats


When Apple announced that it had agreed to purchase Beats Audio for $3 billion back in May, it was also said that the deal was expected to finalize during Q2. Today, it looks like the deal has been made official, despite hearing only from the European Commission as far as regulatory approval. The news was broken by Tim Cook and Dre tweeting the news along with links to the welcome page on the Apple site and Beats site.


The Apple page welcomes Beats Audio and cofounders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre to the Apple family. The message goes on to say:


Beats cofounders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre have created beautiful products that have helped millions of people deepen their connection to music. We're delighted to be working with the team to elevate that experience even further.
And we can't wait to hear what's next.



On the Beats site, credit is given to the Macintosh computer as being the "instrument of choice" for digital music creation, as well as nods to the iPod, iPhone, and iPad. In addition to this welcome page, Beats has updated its support pages to note that "All online purchasing will go through the Apple Online Store" for Beats products.




Beats vs Bose


Bad luck Apple, Beats Audio is Apple's most expensive acquisition to-date. Until Bose comes into the picture. Bose is arguably the standard by which all others are measured when it comes to audio technology and quality. Bolstering that technology is a portfolio of patents, and on Friday, Bose filed a lawsuit against Beats claiming infringement of 5 noise cancelation patents in use with Beats' Studio and Studio Wireless line of headphones.




Bose also filed a complaint with the International Trade Commission with the aim of stopping the importation of Beats noise cancelation headphones to the United States. "We are committed to protection our investment, protecting our customers, and defending the patents we own," according to a Bose representative.




iOS 8


The 4th beta version of the upcoming iOS 8 is now ready for developers to download and play with. It comes around two weeks after the third beta saw the light of day, and as you might expect it brings with it many small improvements.


iOS 8


If you already have iOS 8 beta 3 on your iPhone or iPad, the update will come to you over-the-air. Otherwise, you can get it from the iOS Developer Center.


The new iOS 8 beta brings polish all-round, and the Control Center has been redesigned. In Settings, a new Display & Brightness section has appeared, separated from the the wallpaper picker, and a Home Data icon has showed up in the Privacy section.




Apple Samsung Partners


Apple have a lot of disagreements with Samsung. However, Apple is currently searching for a chip manufacture for its upcoming products, and it couldn't find a better Chip manufacturing Partner than Samsung.


According to Taiwanese media reports, TSMC which is one of the world's largest manufacturers of mobile chipsets is about to lose two of its big clients. Apple and Qualcomm decided to switch to Samsung as they primary manufacturing partner.


Back in the day when Apple left Samsung for TSMC, everyone made a big deal out of it and said it was down to the fierce legal battle between the two giants. However, that war is far from over, and Apple's willingness to return to its Korean rival suggests it might have been a mere coincidence and TSMC simply offered better terms at the time.
