Here are your Apple rumors and AAPL news items for today:
U2: Apple (AAPL) has created a tool that will allow users to delete U2’s newest album from their libraries, reports MacRumors. The new tool to remove U2’s Songs of Innocence album comes after several iTunes users complained about not being able to do so and being forced to download the item. The tool will delete the album from users’ iCloud accounts after they sign in to it with their Apple ID and password. The company has also created a support document that gives users specific details on how to remove the album from their iCloud.
A8: New details suggest that Apple’s A8 processor in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus has a huge increase in performance over the last generation of the smartphones, AppleInsider notes. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus may be carrying the PowerVR Series6XT GX6650 from Imagination. This is a six-core processor that matches up with the specs the tech company has released for the upcoming devices. In fact, according to a report that looks at the new smartphones’ power, this is the only thing that could fit with what Apple has talked about in terms of performance and support of ARM’s Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression.
Reserve: Employees working at Apple Stores may be able to reserve the iPhone 6 and buy it after their shift ends, reports 9to5Mac. A leaked document claims that overnight and morning workers at the retail locations will be able to reserve the iPhone 6. However, this only applies to employees working on the launch day of the device that are scheduled before Noon. The alleged document only lists the iPhone 6 as being able to be reserved by employees, which adds credit to the rumor that the iPhone 6 Plus has a limited supply.
