Here are your Apple Rumors for today:
Sale: Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) Back to School sale in New Zealand and Australia has started, reports 9to5Mac. The Back to School sale offers students discounted prices on the company’s Macs, iPads and iPhones. Students who purchase one of these will also be given an Apple Store gift card. The program is very similar to the Back to School sales that take place in the United States. The US version of these sales are expected to start in July.
iTunes: Several iTunes Connect developers have reported problems signing into their accounts, MacRumors notes. The problem isn’t that the iTunes Connect developers can’t sign in. Instead, the issue is that they are being signed into other developers’ accounts. Following reports of the issues, Apple shut down iTunes Connect to deal with the problem. The service was down from 8:50 am PT to 12:43 p.m. PT.
