- Apple starts notification of iPhone 6s shipments, days after the info has been available on the UPS website
- iOS 9 includes at least one fun localization
- Push Popcorn updates Records — a “lite database” app for OS X — to version 1.1
- Want to make sure you don’t go over your data limit? There’s a Watch app for that
- Microsoft makes a really dumb move
