App Store offers 10% more

If you are an Apple user, adding money to your iTunes and App Store accounts may end up benefiting you in the long run. On Sunday, March 10th, Apple launched a promotion allowing customers to obtain a 10% bonus when adding to their Apple Funds. This bonus will be valid until March 14th, 2019 and is being offered to customers adding between $1 and $200 to their accounts.

The promotion can be found on the iPhone by visiting the app store and clicking on the account icon in the top right corner. After clicking on the“AddFunds to Apple ID” tab located right above the“SignOut” tab, customers will be brought to a list of possible dollar amounts to add to their accounts ranging anywhere from $10 to $100 including the option to choose an unlisted amount by clicking on the tab labeled“Other”.All preset amounts include information regarding how much of a bonus would be received if the amount was added to their accounts(by adding $10 a $1 bonus is added, by adding $25 a $2.50 bonus is added etc.) and the same information is added to the“Other”option once it is picked and a dollar amount is added. The process works similarly on a MacBook with the main differences being that customers seeking out the promotion need to click on their icon at the bottom left corner of the app store and click on the link entitled“ViewInformation” in the upper right hand corner of the screen in order to add additional funds to their Apple accounts and get the bonus. 

This promotion is beneficial to Apple customers who find themselves generally spending a decent amount of their money on apps and music through both the App store and iTunes store considering it allows customers to buy more with less of an impact to their own personal funds. 

The promotion is available to Apple customers only in the United States, however similar promotions have been offered in various countries including Germany where Apple is offering a 15% bonus with the addition of funds to Apple accounts instead of a 10% bonus.

Apple Stands By Malala Fund

 

Malala Fund's Network
https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2018/07/apple-supports-malala-fund-expansion-in-latin-america/

Apple launches a collaboration between its 10 Apple Developer Academies in Brazil and Malala Fund to help progress girls’ education opportunities. The Malala Fund in Latin America is working to provide safe, quality secondary education and opportunities for girls. It will also offer grants to local advocates in Brazil. The advocates at Apple will join Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions and implement projects all over the country. These projects  will feature a design to empower girls, inspire teachers and policymakers to develop their skills through programs, and positively affect school enrollment efforts and advocacy for education.

Malala Fund’s Network

Malala Fund’s network will be challenging the creativity and innovative minds of Apple Developer Academy students and Brazilian alumni. It will also give them the chance to collaborate with Malala Fund to develop and design apps that enhance the education opportunities for girls. This challenge will motivate the students to find ways to better enable Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions around the world.  It will also help Malala to communicate and share best practices in a secure environment.

The Apple Developer Academy’s developers in Rio met Malala Yousafzai on Friday. They spoke with her when she was there to visit the students. She was there to discuss how important the developers are to the fund’s mission to provide education opportunities to girls all over the world.

Apple became Malala Fund’s first Laurete partner in January. Apple did this by enabling the Malala Fund to increase the amount of grants awarded by its Gulmakai Network. They will also fund new programs in India and Latin America. This is with the goal in mind of enhancing the opportunities for secondary education for over 100,000 girls.

Dating back to 2013, more than 3,000 students have gone through this experience at Brazil’s Apple Developer Academy program.  Moreover, there are 500 other students that are currently enrolled in 10 sites. The sites are all across Brasilia, Campinas, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Manaus, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, and Sao Paulo. The scholarship winners include the seventy-five Brazilian students who were present at the Worldwide Developer Conference. For more information on Apple’s support of Malala’s fund, click here.
