Sales of the Apple Watch to consumers set a record during the first week of holiday shopping, and the current quarter is on track to be the best ever for the product, Apple Inc (AAPL.O) Chief Executive Tim Cook told Reuters.

Responding to an email from Reuters, Cook said the gadget’s sell-through – a measure of how many units are sold to consumers, rather than simply stocked on retailers’ shelves – reached a new high.

Cook’s comments followed a report on Monday from technology research firm IDC estimating that the tech giant sold 1.1 million units of the Apple Watch during the third quarter of 2016, down 71 percent from the year-ago quarter. The comments offer a glimpse of the gadget’s performance during the holiday quarter, which is typically Apple’s strongest.

Apple has launched a new repair program for a widely reported on iPhone 6 Plus hardware malfunction known as “touch disease,” which renders the touchscreen useless and manifests as a thin grey line at the top the display. According to Apple, however, this flaw is caused by dropping the phone repeatedly. The company says it will not cover the cost of a repair and will ask those affected by the issue to pay $149 to have it fixed. That might not sit too well with the iPhone owners who filed class action lawsuits against Apple over the touch disease issue.

WHAT would you expect to pay for a coffee-table book that chronicles 20 years of Apple design?

Quite a bit if you go by the price tag selected by the tech giant.

In what could be described as a self-indulgent act, Apple is selling a coffee-table book containing 450 photographs of past and current products for $A429.00.

Admittedly, there is smaller version of the coffee table book for $A289, which some could argue is still a tad excessive.

Ming-Chi Kuo is at it again. The KGI Securities analyst (widelyregarded as “the best Apple AAPL -0.11% analyst on the planet”) has revealed Apple has decided cancel the annual upgrade of arguably its most successful iPhone in 2016…

In a new research note obtained by MacRumors, Kuo says Apple has decided not to release a 2017 update of the iPhone SE. The company’s budget friendly 4-inch handset has been a surprise critical and commercial hit and I recently argued it is a better buy than the iPhone 7.

By November 15, the biggest investors in the world will be required to disclose a snapshot of what their portfolios looked like at the end of the third quarter.

I suspect we’ll find that Apple was heavily bought during the period.

As you might recall the media was stirring about the second quarter filings, which were reported back in August. Some big names had sold or trimmed stakes in Apple.
