We welcome all those who decided to read the article about the most important events of the week. Some of them you might have missed, while others are already overgrown with rumors and conjectures.

This week we watched Appleā€™s headquarters in Cupertino. And they learned a lot of news, both positive and negative. So we will not torment you for a long time and tell you everything that we have learned.

This week there were several negative headlines about Apple just like seiko in the newspapers. What is the reason? It was discovered that some iOS fitness apps are stealing money using Apple Pay. Fitness Balance and Calories Tracker wrote off more than 6 thousand rubles after people put their finger on the BMI (Body Mass Index) test Apple removed the applications and returned the money to users.


It seems unthinkable that there are banks that do not support Apple Pay, but the company added eight new banks, including Bank of America in Canada. This is especially true in connection with the deployment of services in a number of countries last month, including Belgium and Kazakhstan, and in Germany, contracts with Apple Pay were concluded at the end of 2018.


We are big fans of the Facer platform, which is very convenient for those who want to access the incredible and unique dials of casion watches (support is provided for more than 50 hours, including most with Wear OS and Samsung devices). The service has been significantly redesigned. There was a subscription that can be issued for only 300 rubles a month, and now iPhone users can also use the platform.


You are not mistaken. According to IDC (an international company engaged in the study of the global information technology and telecommunications market), published this week, it turned out that Fitbit and Apple had given way to a leading position for the upstart Xiaomi, at least on the basis of net supplies. In the middle of 2018, low-cost fitness tracker vendors sold 6.9 million units of their goods, compared with 4.2 million for Apple and 3.5 million for Fitbit in the period when sales increased compared to the same period last year. devices accounted for 22%.


Apple's long-awaited ECG feature has appeared on devices in the US thanks to a wireless update. watchOS 5.1.2 brought good news for those who were waiting for a function that allows to classify an ECG recording into atrial fibrillation (atrial fibrillation) and sinus rhythm, which, according to Apple, will help to reveal hidden health problems.


Bellabeat launches its first smart watch, called The Bellabeat Time. This is a hybrid quartz-based smart watch designed for women. Bellabeat Time is available in two colors: silver and rose gold. They run on a standard battery for a watch, giving you six months of battery life. They have fairly standard fitness tracker functions, but additionally tracks meditation and menstrual cycles to offer a more complete overview of your overall health.
