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.

Rumors Of New Apple ARM-Based Mac

According to DigiTimes , Apple is releasing a new ARM-based Mac product. This new ARM-based Mac product will likely be manufactured by Apple’s long time supplier, Pegatron. This rumor came  from a report on project “Kalamata.” “Kalamata” proposes that Apple is expecting to release ARM-based Macs in the future. The new Mac will include the use of a touchscreen, SIM card, GPS, compass, and water resistant feature that differ from the previous Macbook and Macbook Air.

The rumor, however, fails to comment on the use of the screen size, processor design, format, or keyboard, which implies that the new ARM-based Mac is similar to an IPad. The new Apple product, recently code-named as “Star,” will possibly be the project name under which Apple will release it’s ARM-based product. This ARM-based Mac will likely be similar to an IOS notebook. 

Pegatron’s Mac Prototypes 

Furthermore, prototypes for the new ARM-based product are underway. They will reveal the use of an Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI), similar to Apple’s Intel-based Macs. This suggests that an IOS ARM-powered Macbook will be Apple’s next move. Although DigiTimes did not release details  about Apple’s new project, it is likely that Pegatron will continue manufacturing these products. Pegatron will also ship these products to Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Rumors about Apple’s ARM-based products, however, started speculating in 2010. Apple made efforts to expand their CPU design group in 2010. Expanding the CPU design group involves poaching and new acquisitions for Apple. Nonetheless, Apple’s efforts to launch new products like the ARM-based product continued until 2017. In 2017, Apple released a report that they were planning to cut back on Intel. Therefore, other reports show a similarity in performance between the MacBook Pro of single-core performance and the multicore performance. However, the multicore performance includes the original 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. 

With new rumors speculating about the release of an ARM-powered Mac manufactured by Pegatron, it should be exciting to see if Apple will be introducing this new product soon.
