apple-rumors-ios-9-performance-aaplWatch: Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has finally started shipping gold Watches to customers, reports MacRumors. Several customers that ordered the Watch Edition claim that the company started shipping and charging cards on Monday. Shipping estimates have some people set to get their hands on the smartwatch as soon as Saturday. Due the the price of the Watch Edition, which ranges from $10,000 to $17,000, customers are being asked to fill out specific shipping information, such as when the item should arrive at their home. Prior to these shipments, the Watch was only available in limited quantities at fashion boutiques.

Update: Some owners have reported that the newest Apple Watch update has a bug, AppleInsider notes. According to several Watch owners, the Watch OS 1.0.1 update has made it so that the device doesn’t always track heart rate the way it’s supposed to. Some users have complained that the device will go an hour without tracking heart rate and others say it takes longer than this. Users can still force the device to read their heart rate, but it’s not doing it every 10 minutes, which is what it’s supposed to do.

iOS: A new rumor claims that Apple is planning to focus on making iOS 9 perform better, reports 9to5Mac. According to this rumor, which comes from multiple unnamed sources, iOS 9 won’t be focused on adding new features. Instead, the tech company will look into improving the quality of the software. This includes adding legacy support for more iOS devices. Rumors claim that iOS 9 will work on devices that run the A5 processor. This includes the iPhone 4s and iPad mini. OS X 10.11 is also expected to have a greater focus on quality over new features.
