Nike+ Run Club for iPhone and Apple Watch has a notable update out today just one day before the Apple Watch Nike+ starts hits stores. Version 5.1 includes a ton of improvements and fixes plus some new features like Apple Music integration and GPS support on the Apple Watch Series 2.
Back in 2013, the Italian government accused the company of failing to declare sales revenue from sales in Italy, instead funnelling it to Ireland. The Italian tax authorities said that undeclared sales from 16 Apple Stores in the country totalled more than $1.3B, and sent Apple a tax bill for $347M.

I wrote an opinion piece last month entitled macOS Sierra’s new storage-management tools are a bit of a mess.
Effectively you are switching from a belt-and-braces system, where you have three copies – one local, a second in your local Time Machine backup, a third on iCloud – to just a single copy. That’s way too risky for my tastes, especially given the somewhat flakey reliability record of Apple’s cloud services.
But Mac users may also be running that same risk without even realizing it. Because that first option – to ‘Optimize Mac Storage’ for files stored on iCloud – is on by default in my experience. This means that, for any file on iCloud, your Mac could be deleting files from your Mac without your knowledge or permission. That should never be the case.

A Reddit user has posted pictures of the San Francisco Apple Store where employees are setting up line dividers and measuring floor space as if they are preparing for a new in-store display of some kind. This seems to suggest that the new Mac laptops (or something else?) may actually go on sale today, once the event is over …
We’ll of course be bringing you all the news from today’s Mac-focused keynote presentation as it happens, but many also like to watch the live presentation. The ‘hello again’ tagline suggests Apple thinks it’s announcing something pretty special.
The keynote kicks off in the morning in Cupertino, and the start time of course depends on your time-zone:
- 10am PT
- 1pm ET
- 6pm London
- 7pm Western Europe …
