Apple is about to kick off its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), but before you get caught up in all the latest product updates from San Francisco here's a handy reminder of everything the firm got up to last week.
Apple restored several of its key services such as iCloud and the App Store after an outage that affected users across the world last Tuesday evening.
Apple's status page had information concerning the problems, noting that "users experienced a problem with our service", although details on the cause of the outage were not been given.
The outage meant that users could not log in to iCloud or download an app from the App Store. The spinning 'loading wheel' indicating that a download is about to take place would simply loop for a few minutes before eventually giving up.
A woman who took a box with an antique Apple computer inside to a recycling centre has become the subject of a widespread effort to track her down that could end with her being given a cheque for £65,000.
The unknown woman took a collection of her departed husband's boxes to a tip in California run by a company called CleanBayArea.
It is possible that she did not check the boxes, or did not know what they contained, but one included an antique Apple-1 computer that went on to be sold for around £130,000.
Apple has announced that the Apple Watch will go on sale in seven more countries from 26 June, and that the wearable device will be available to buy in stores for the first time.
The new countries are Italy, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and Taiwan. Apple said that the Watch will be available from the Apple Online Store, Apple's retail outlets and resellers.
Apple also used the announcement to acknowledge that the delivery of Apple Watch devices has been blighted by a backlog in the firm's supply chain.
Apple Pay will reportedly make its UK debut in August, and Apple is poised to announce an international launch date at WWDC later on Monday.
That's according to The Telegraph, which has heard from "industry sources" that Apple plans to announce the expansion of Apple Pay on Monday during the WWDC keynote.
The service will be officially switched on in the UK two months later, according to the unnamed sources.
Apple chief executive Tim Cook has delivered a speech in which he accused his Silicon Valley peers of selling out their users and customers.
The speech, delivered remotely to an Electronic Privacy in Communications event in Washington called Champions of Freedom, saw Cook share the stage with experts like Bruce Schneier.
"Our privacy is being attacked on multiple fronts. I'm speaking to you from Silicon Valley, where some of the most prominent and successful companies have built their businesses by lulling their customers into complacency about their personal information," he said.
"They're gobbling up everything they can learn about you and trying to monetise it. We think that's wrong. And it's not the kind of company that Apple wants to be."
Apple's next-generation iPhone 7 will be released on 25 September, according to a leaked Vodafone memo.
The memo, which was apparently sent to Vodafone employees and leaked to Mobile News, claims that the "new iPhone" will go on sale on 25 September, with pre-orders kicking off a week earlier on 18 September.
No prices or any further details about the device were mentioned.
Apple has still to release a software update to fix the SMS text crash bug that came to light last month, one week after promising it was working on an update for the issue.
The text bug first hit the headlines in May, when it was reported that a certain message could cause iPhones to crash and reset themselves. Apple acknowledged the issue at the time, and promised a fix would be issued.
