Apple Daily Report for February 20, 2017

The AWT News Update is on hiatus while my compadre, Steve, takes a trip. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

Apple has filed its appeal with the European court of appeals, all declaring that the European Commission's decision to levy $14 billion in taxes on Apple on behalf of the EU is erroneous, against the rule of law, and should be stricken.

Apple has added complete translations and custom explainer graphics to Apple Pay support documents on its regional websites in German and Italy, suggesting the payments service might soon launch in those countries. 

Password manager 1Password for Mac has been failing to launch over the weekend due to its developer certificate expiring, as the company notes in a blog post. The same issue has also hit a number of other Mac apps.

Apple has released three new developer betas of iOS 10.3, macOS Sierra 10.12.4, tvOS 10.2, and watchOS 3.2. Developers can download the beta at the Apple Developer Center or the Software Update mechanism in the App Store.
