We've taken a look back at the big Apple stories from last week. Read on to find out what the Cupertino giant was up to in the past seven days.
Apple Pay merchant support
Even though Apple has yet to roll out its mobile payment service in the UK and Europe, it's busy signing up more retailers to supports its system for US users. Last week, Apple added a further 10 merchants to the Apple Pay list, bringing the total to 68 showcase on the Apple Pay site. Gamestop and T-Mobile were among those added last week.
Apple has also listed a further 13 businesses due to come on board soon, including Urban Outfitters and the Marriott hotel chain.
Apple Watch pre-orders
The Apple Watch became available to pre-order on Friday. The first smartwatch from Apple is priced from £299 for the Sport version, rising to £479 to £949 for the standard Watch versions, and £8,000 to as high as £13,500 for the Apple Watch Edition.
Devices will go on sale from 24 April in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US. However, estimated shipping times were quickly pushed back from April to May or June for most versions.
While devices aren't available to take away yet, interested buyers were able to pre-order an Apple Watch online or head over to one of the firm's retail stores for an appointment to try out the devices and then place an order.
According to initial figures, Apple has another top seller on its hands. Data from shopping research firm Slice Intelligence estimated that almost one million people in the US pre-ordered an Apple Watch on 10 April, and this doesn't cover any pre-orders in the eight other territories.
iOS 8.3 rolled out
Apple has released the iOS 8.3 update bringing a range of fixes and new features, the most notable of which is WiFi Calling on the EE network.
The service was meant to launch first on Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices on 10 April. However, the rollout of iOS 8.3 on 9 April saw Apple get there a day before, and EE customers with an iPhone 5S, 5C, 6 or 6 Plus can now use WiFi Calling.
The iOS 8.3 update is 223MB in size for those on the most up-to-date version of iOS, and takes around five minutes to download and a further five to 10 minutes to install.
iOS 8.3 includes a redesign of the ‘emoji' keyboard to display more images and improve navigation.
Fixes include fewer WiFi dropoffs, improved performance and stability when rotating devices between portrait and landscape, and the removal of a bug where "device orientation appeared upside down after pulling the iPhone 6 Plus from your pocket".
However, not all iPhone users were happy with the update. Some complained that since the iOS 8.3 update they have been unable to use touch or fingerprint access to the application store. The problem, naturally, is limited to those handsets that offer the Touch ID authentication system.
12in MacBook pre-orders
The new 12in MacBook is now available to order in the UK, but won't start shipping for four to six weeks if you order one online.
The entry-level model, which ships with 256GB storage and a 1.1GHz dual-core processor, can be picked up for £1,049, while the higher-end model with 512GB storage and a 1.2GHz chip will cost £1,299. Both are available in silver, gold and space grey colour options.
The 12in MacBook has been criticised for its single USB Type-C port. However, for that omission, users get a thin and light laptop measuring just 13.1mm at its thinnest point and tipping the scales at only 0.9kg, even less than the MacBook Air.
