    Apple's App Store makes so much money from fewer downloads than Google's Play Store. So, why change a revenue sharing model with developers that has worked for eight years? Because Phil Schiller is betting that it will end up making Apple more money. Schiller revealed to The Verge that developers can soon activate app access subscriptions on their products from any category — including games. Apple will continue to take 30 percent of the revenue, but if a customer keeps a subscription for more than a year, that cut shrinks down to 15 percent per transaction. App makers would have ...

    The iPhone SE went through four names before it came to the one that Apple chose for heading to market. They are: The iPhone 6c The iPhone 7c The iPhone 5e The iPhone 5se So, what do the two letters stand for? Well, they stand for "Special Edition."

    Apple's Phil Schiller recently posted a tweet aimed squarely at Android users: "Be safe out there", followed by a link to F-Secure's latest Mobile Threat Report. That was last week and the talking-heads are already on a roll. Some are claiming vindication, even going as far as saying that Apple has won the war.
