Apple launched the Apple Watch in April and, while take-up has perhaps not quite been as high as the company hoped, there was certainly interest in our round-up of the ever-growing number of apps available for the wearable.

Apple Pay arrived in the UK this year and was an instant hit with those who could use the service. Many couldn't at launch, although this has changed as more banks signed up. Barclays is a notable absence but that is likely to change in 2015.
A bizarre bug hit iPhone, iPads and Apple Watch devices earlier in the year when it was discovered that a very specific message sent via text could force phones to restart. Apple did eventually fix the flaw but not before many users were left frustrated by an unresponsive iDevice.
Apple had to issue a compulsory update forcing Mac OS X users to upgrade to the latest version of Flash in February, following the discovery of three zero-day vulnerabilities in the software.

Apple released its first major update to iOS 9 in the form of iOS 9.1 in October, bringing numerous security and bug fixes.
The note for the update said that it fixed a problem relating to performance of the multi-tasking function, calendar, messaging and mail apps, and stopped the Live Photo feature on the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S taking live video all the time.
The download also contained 150 new emoji messaging icons by adding support for Unicode 8.0 and 9.0.
FireEye revealed a security flaw in Apple iOS devices in August that could allow malicious applications to stay open for an unlimited time while remaining hidden from unsuspecting users.

Devices running a version previous to iOS 8.4.1 remained open to the vulnerability.
