There’s a good chance you’ve got someone who loves music on your holiday shopping list, so here’s a pro tip: Stop trying to figure out what bands they like. Instead, it’s a much safer bet to get them a great set of wireless earbuds, such as the Flux 7 TWS, which are on sale for $19.99 (80% off) during our extended Cyber Monday sale.
Yes, we know that Cyber Monday has come and gone. But we extended our sale by offering price drops on a curated list of tech, apps, gift cards and more, all of which make great gifts for the holidays. These affordable, innovative earbuds are one such deal, but you can only get them at this price until November 30.
Apple Music users might want to know how they can review their favorite music from the past year, as users of other music services can do with Spotify Wrapped and the like.
For Apple Music, the answer is Apple Music Replay, which Apple said Tuesday it redesigned for 2022 with more music insights and functionality. It’s updated and available throughout the year. We’ll show you how to find it.
It’s that time of year when Black Friday and Cyber Monday seem to stretch for days and days. The Cult of Mac Store is offering 30% off a range of wonderful Laut accessories for Apple products through Friday, December 2.

If you’re looking for affordable cloud storage but missed Cyber Monday’s deals, you’re in luck. We’re extending our Cyber Monday sale to November 30, so you can still score price-drops on a curated list of tech, apps, gift cards and more.
That includes a lifetime Prism Drive plan, which starts at $39.99. That’s the best price on the web, and no coupon is necessary.
Elon Musk declared war on Apple on Monday afternoon. A Twitter war, anyway. The new owner of Twitter very publicly objects to the 30% fee the iPhone-maker claims from purchases made through the iPhone software store, and also says Apple has threatened to pull the Twitter app from the App Store. He also asked, “Do they [Apple] hate free speech in America?”
An open conflict with Apple is a risky move by Musk, as Twitter needs Apple much more than Apple needs Twitter.
November 28, 2001: Apple says QuickTime 5 is being downloaded for Mac and PC a million times every three days, putting the multimedia software on track to exceed 100 million downloads in its first year of distribution. The announcement comes as websites adopt the MPEG-4 format, and online video begins to take off in a big way.
In particular, Apple’s movie trailer website proves a massive success. Millions of people download previews of upcoming blockbusters like Spider-Man and Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Online trailer releases for films like The Lord of the Ringsbecome buzz-worthy events.
In a pre-YouTube world, Apple has everything to gain!
