It’s been over 150 years since the South lost to the Union army in the American Civil War, but only recently has the call to finally remove the Confederate Flag from public places picked up steam. Now Apple is getting in on the action too by banning all Civil War games from the App Store that display the Confederate Flag in “offensive and mean-spirited ways.”
Black Eyed Peas founder Will.i.Am has been an Apple fanboy for years, but when it comes to supporting Jony Ive’s new wearable, the singer thinks it’s just weird.
During a panel discussion at the Cannes Lions festival, Mr I.Am said he recently saw a man at the gym with an iPhone 6 strapped to his arm even though he was wearing an Apple Watch, and it just didn’t look right he told SaleForce CEO Marc Benioff.

Carl Icahn is bearish on the current stock market. After making billions buying Netflix shares near $58, the iconic investor announced today that he’s cashing out now that the stock is trading around $677 because the ‘overheated.’
Despite pulling out of Netflix though, Icahn is still super bullish on AAPL and thinks that the stock is actually at the same point now as when he bought into Netflix back in 2012.

Pharrell Williams has been Apple’s BFF lately, but when it comes to the battle between Apple and Taylor Swift, Skateboard P is on Team Taytay.
The eleven-time Grammy award winning artist spoke at the Cannes Lions Festival today (where Apple just scooped up a big award), and said that what Taylor did was a great thing for music.
Indie musicians haven’t been too keen on Apple’s music streaming service that originally planned to cut them out of a paycheck for three months. Now that Taylor Swift has won her battle against Apple Music, thousands of indie artists are changing their tune toward the upcoming service.
Upgrading to a new version of iOS isn’t an easy task if you’ve got a device with 16GB or storage or less. Starting with iOS 9 though, Apple’s going to help you free up space by automatically deleting your apps. But don’t worry, it’ll put them right back after updates are done.
This is what the notification looks like if you don’t have enough space:
Apple Music is ready to launch in just seven days, and it looks like it’s coming with some exclusive songs too.
Pharrell tweeted out a short video of an unreleased song ‘Freedom’ this morning. Based on the tweet, it looks like the song could be part of a new album that’s coming exclusively to Apple Music.
