Apple Pay Landing Page Goes Live on Apple’s Mexico Website, Suggesting Imminent Launch

Apple added an Apple Pay landing page to its regional Mexico website late on Tuesday, indicating the mobile payment system could launch in the country imminently.


Way back in March there were suggestions that Apple Pay could be coming to Mexico, after reports that some iPhone users in the country had been able to add their Banregio cards to the Wallet app, with only the verification process failing.

Cards from banks other than Banregio were not able to be added to the Wallet app on the ‌‌iPhone‌‌, suggesting ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ in Mexico could be limited to Banregio at launch.

That’s still uncertain, since the ‌Apple Pay‌ page on Apple’s Mexican website offers no launch date and doesn’t list any banks that will integrate with the service. All it says is ‌Apple Pay‌ will be compatible with “credit and debit cards of the most important payment networks, issued by various banks,”

Apple Online Store Goes Down Ahead of iPhone 12 Apple Event

Apple’s online store is down in anticipation of its “Hi, Speed” event later on Tuesday, suggesting at least some products may be available to pre-order or order immediately after the event.


The placeholder for the U.S. online store says “We’re making updates to the Apple store. Check back soon.”

Apple’s “Hi, Speed” event will be a virtual media event, where the company is expected to take the wraps off its flagship iPhone 12 lineup, a smaller, more affordable HomePod, and potentially other products.

We’ve heard conflicting rumors about when Apple’s new iPhone models will be available to order, but Apple is expected to stagger the launches this year, and we’re not expecting ‌iPhone‌ pre-orders to open immediately.

Chinese leaker Kang, who has provided accurate information in the past, claims pre-orders for the 6.1-inch ‌‌iPhone 12‌‌ and ‌‌iPhone 12‌‌ Pro models could begin this coming Friday, October 16, with the first

Apple Introduces the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max With New Designs

Apple today, in addition to the iPhone 12 phones, revealed the new Pro and Pro Max models.

iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max were the final reveals at today’s Apple event, and pack some pretty nice upgrades over the 11 Pro models. Both new phones feature more storage, larger screens, a new design, and 5G support.

Much like the 12 and 12 Mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max feature the new boxed design, A14 chip, and 5G support. However, the Pro earns its title in other ways. Apple has opted to increase the screen size of both models this year. The iPhone 12 Pro now features a 6.1″ Super Retina XDR display, up from past year’s 5.7″ display. Meanwhile, the 12 Pro Max gets a 6.7″ display, up from 6.5″ Unfortunately, both phones are still locked at 60Hz. It does feature a stainless steel finish that looks

Apple Store down ahead of ‘iPhone 12’ debut event

Hours before it is due to hold its “Hi, Speed” event, Apple has taken down its online Apple Store in preparation for the introduction of new products, such as the “iPhone 12” lineup.

A custom that precedes practically any important product launch for the company, Apple has blocked off its online store from customers at approximately 7am eastern time, preventing any new purchases from taking place. Instead, consumers are greeted by the customary “Be right back” screen, explaining there are updates being made to the Apple Store and to “check back soon.”

The message’s appearance usually takes place during maintenance periods before major announcements, such as product launches or refreshes. This also includes major product presentations, such as September’s “Time Flies” event and Tuesday’s “Hi, Speed” event.

Apple will commence the show from 10am pacific time (1pm eastern time), with a video stream featuring Apple executives showing

Judge Allows Apple to Continue to Block ‘Fortnite’ From App Store

Apple can continue to block Fortnite from its app store as it battles in court with developer Epic Games, a federal judge in California said on Friday afternoon.

Apple banned Fortnite from the App Store in August after Epic introduced a new payment system that circumvented the iPhone maker’s process, in which it takes a 30 percent cut of in-app purchases. Epic, which then sued Apple over the practice, had asked District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers to grant a preliminary injunction that would make Fortnite available once again in the App Store while the two companies await trial, which is set to kick off May 3.

“Having reviewed the limited record, while Epic Games raises serious questions on the merits, the Court cannot conclude that Epic Games will likely succeed on the merits of those claims,” Gonzalez Rogers wrote in her decision. “Too many unknowns remain.”

Judge Allows Apple to Continue to Block ‘Fortnite’ From App Store

“Having reviewed the limited record, while Epic Games raises serious questions on the merits, the Court cannot conclude that Epic Games will likely succeed on the merits of those claims,” Gonzalez Rogers wrote in her decision. “Too many unknowns remain.”

Though Fortnite players will not be able to download or update the game on Apple devices, Epic’s other product, software tool Unreal Engine, can continue to be distributed via the Apple Store, Gonzalez Rogers ruled. Unreal Engine is used by Hollywood studios and many game developers who also distribute their apps via the App Store. Gonzalez Rogers found that banning the graphics engine from the App Store “could have significant irreparable harm to Unreal Engine and to Epic Games and its affiliates.”

The antitrust showdown between Apple and Epic is expected have a ripple effect in the tech world. It pits the owner of one of the most powerful mobile

Apple Removes Beats Landing Page From Website Ahead of Tuesday’s Launch Event [Update: Restored]

Apple has quietly removed the “Beats by Dre” webpage from its website ahead of its Apple event on Tuesday, as it prepares to launch a new, lower-cost HomePod and AirPods Studio headphones.


As noted by Apple Terminal, the landing page for Beats products can no longer be found on Apple’s website. The Wayback Machine has a snapshot of the page in its original form from October 2, while the most recent snapshot from October 9 shows the page as down, suggesting Apple removed it sometime between these two dates.

Over the last couple of weeks, MacRumors has independently observed a gradual removal of all links to Beats’ support website from Apple’s own support pages. Apple also quietly retired its Beats Updater utility that lets users update the firmware of their Beats Wireless headphones, earphones, and speakers.

Apple still sells Beats-branded products on the headphones and speakers section of its

Apple culls Beats webpage from online store ahead of ‘iPhone 12’ event

Apple has altered its website to remove a page for “Beats by Dre,” a possible sign that the company is shifting itself away from the headphone electronics brand in favor of its own name.

Since the purchase of Beats in 2014, Apple has promoted the popular brand at the same time as its own products, and in recent years technologies developed by Apple have crossed over to Beats devices. However, it seems that Apple is slowly moving from promoting Beats on its own website, by removing a prominent page about the hardware.

Spotted by Apple Terminal, the page in the online Apple Store for “Beats by Dr. Dre” listed the Beats products Apple sold, across multiple product lines. The list ranged from the wireless Powerbeats Pro earphones to premium over-ear models like the Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones.

The exact date of when the page was taken
