    Welcome to the Thursday Morning News Roundup, covering the last week and a half of news.

    Last Thursday saw the biggest news we’ve had in recent times - Apple sent out press invitations for its much speculated September event. The iPhone 6S, a new Apple TV in addition to the release of iOS 9 and possibly OS X 10.11 are rumoured to be highlights of the event. The ...

    Good evening MacTalkers, Oldmacs here with your Friday night news update.

    As the spring public release of El Capitan draws closer, yesterday saw the release of OS X El Capitan Developer beta 7. Alongside the developer beta, Apple relaunched the El Capitan developer beta 5. Apple had presumably accidentally pushed out the 5th public beta on Tuesday, as the update briefly ...

    Before we get going on the news, a big thank you to everyone for the well wishes on the safe arrival of our daughter Lara. Also thanks to OldMacs for stepping in with some news updates during my time away.

    As it happened it was not all that heavy a news period but today turns out to be a good day to step back in.

    Leading us off are reports that the next Apple event will be held on ...

    Hi everyone. As some of you would know, SRG is on a break from the news desk with the birth of his daughter so I'm going to try and do the news until his return, so feedback is welcome, I'm not very good at this sort of thing.

    To start off today, I'll do a quick recap of the last couple of days, then I'll do morning news as I can.

    The 6th beta of Mac OS X El Capitan (Build ...

    Clearly the place to start today is the new range of iPods, which were released yesterday. An advantage in reporting on them today is that the tech sites have had a chance to play with them. The biggest update is to the iPod Touch, which sees a big processor jump and also an increase in its maximum size to a 128GB model. As you might expect now the device sports the same A8 chip as the iPhone ...

    It seems Apple was not the only party caught unawares by the Taylor Swift blog post about Apple Music. Speaking at a Fortune Brainstorm Tech Conference, an executive from her label said he was unaware of the post from Swift until it went live, but he had already been talking to Apple about the situation in the days leading up to that. Whilst Swift asked him not to be mad ...

    It has been talked about for a long time now but it seems the latest rumours suggest the iPad Pro might be arriving later this year. Digitimes has reported that Apple component makers are said to be due to start supplying parts from mid September and the device is then expected to launch around mid November. The report also claims that Apple is being very cautious in its ordering with ...

    Leading us off this morning is the news that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is said to be looking into the way Apple charges rival music services, following the launch of Apple Music. Reuters reports that of particular focus is said to be the fact that Apple charges competitors 30% of all sales via the App store, making it very hard for them to compete with ...

    If you are one of the brave, or some may say lucky, ones to be part of the Apples public beta programs you can expect to get your hands on OS X El Capitan and iOS 9 at some point today. Reports suggest they have both now been released. Good luck!

    That public release comes on the heels of the developers getting updated versions of both yesterday and also an update on Apple ...

    It is fair to say we all love our Apple unboxing experience, and indeed the way Apple packages its products is something it gets worthy praise for. So Apple is looking to take that a step further with 9to5Mac reporting that they are working with third party accessory makers to help redesign their packaging that is displayed in Apple stores. New packaging ...

    I would support going somewhere else, but where?

    Not really - to some of us it felt a little like an exclusive club than a new welcoming community.

    The only way to achieve what we all want is to create a new forum, move everyone over there and stop coming to MacTalk. While we are still visiting and

    I still visit, read and sometimes even contribute but there are so many other similar avenues I use as well.

    Would an app from another account make it onto your iPhone without at least the computer being authorised?

    As for music/movies, same question.
