Apple today announced a substantial $5M donation to Hand in Hand, a relief fund that is providing Hurricane relief in the wake of two huge hurricanes hitting the US South. Apple CEO Tim Cook said, “We applaud Hand in Hand for bringing together people from all over the country to help one another at a time when so many desperately need it. In addition to Apple’s direct contribution to the relief and recovery efforts, we’re making it easy for anyone in the US to make their own donations to Hand in Hand through the App Store and iTunes.”

You can make a donation now to Hand in Hand via the website or to the Red Cross on iTunes or here.

We get emails about Mac software bundles every day, but only a select few are worth your time. We believe today’s Bundlehunt is one of those. For $21.99, you get to choose your favorite 7 applications from an impressive selection of 50 (!!), many of which are worth multiples of $22 by themselves. There are too many apps to list here but some favorites of the 9to5Mac writers are listed below.

Oh, and we’re giving a bundle of free 7 apps each to one Facebook and Twitter sharer as part of our 9to5Rewards program…so spread the love!! (Winners will be added to the post tomorrow).

January 9

It was a widescreen iPod for music and video, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough Internet communications device, but it would soon also become our flashlight, our wallet, our passport, our light switch, and the lens with which we’d capture and store our memories day in and day out.

Apple changed the world on this day in 2007 when Steve Jobs unveiled the original iPhone. For some of us at 9to5Mac the iPhone was our introduction to Apple and the device we grew up with. For others, a new era for the company and mobile computers. But for all of us, a game changing device that would impact our lives in many ways.

As the iPhone celebrates its 10th anniversary this week, the 9to5Mac team takes some time to remember our first iPhones and just how far the device has come…

The Apple Music festival in London has been always been a staple of the fall pop music scene, but never has it been more integral to Apple’s operations than this year – when Apple Music is locked in a battle for supremacy among streaming services and Tim Cook is pushing services revenue as a replacement for Apple’s sagging hardware unit sales.

This year’s event will not only be available on Apple’s product lineup but also PCs, and for the first time through the Apple Music App on Android which launched in November of last year. That means a much wider audience. Today, Apple announced the headlining lineup …

The World Trade Center Apple Store opens tomorrow at noon in Santiago Calatrava‘s Oculus terminal.  But some are getting a sneak peak at the store this evening according to a couple of our tipsters who work in the area.

We first saw building permits 6 months ago on the site which was conceived 2 years ago.  The Oculus store was designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson which also was the design architect for close to 60 Apple Stores worldwide and the six other Apple Stores in Manhattan including SoHo (the first high profile store), Fourteenth Street (Meatpacking District), (iconic cube entrance) Fifth Avenue, Upper West Side, Upper East Side, and Williamsburg (Brooklyn).

He also touches on the future of Apple, such as its Artificial Intelligence and and Augmented/Virtual Reality ambitions… expand full story
