Your weekly roundup of Apple-related news after the end of a busy week for the firm with the launch of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.
The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus went on sale at Apple Stores in the UK, with eager fans queuing overnight to be among the first to get their hands on the phones.
Apple had to hold the queue around the side from its flagship Regent Street store, before finally letting the early buyers inside to the usual cheering and clapping from Apple Store staff.
Apple released a list of the top 25 most popular iOS applications compromised by XcodeGhost malware, including WeChat, an unofficial copy of the popular Angry Birds game titled Angry Bird 2 and messaging app Encounter.
Apple was forced to clean up its app store after the discovery of the XcodeGhost malware, which was uncovered by security researchers at Palo Alto Networks. The firm found the malware lurking in fake versions of Apple's Xcode developer suite.
Apple has since acknowledged that it has removed the affected apps, and promised users that no sensitive information was at risk during the period.
The update contains several bug and security fixes that have come to light since the iOS 9 update first went live.
The most notable is a problem where the setup assistant would not complete when users were updating their phones to iOS 9. The second fixes a problem where alarms and timers would not play as intended and the third covers issues in Safari and the Photos app where pausing videos caused frames to distort.
A problem where anyone with a custom APN setup would lose mobile data has also been resolved.
Apple made the watchOS 2 software update for the Apple Watch available, around a week after it had been forced to postpone the update owing to a bug.
Apple had said that "a bug in development of watchOS 2" had taken longer to fix than expected, but that it would be resolved soon.
This was clearly solved last week as Apple began issuing the update, which contains numerous improvements, including greater access to the sensors and controls for developers such as the Taptic Engine and Digital Crown.
Apple also revealed three new third-party apps for the watch: Facebook Messenger, Go Pro and iTranslate.
