Angry guy destroys iPhones and Macs in an Apple store with steel ball

In an extreme situation, few of you might have yelled a bit.

But, this guy decided to take his rage to the next level. Earlier today, after getting mad over some unknown reason, a person walked into an Apple Store in Dijon, France. To everyone’s surprise, he started smashing various Apple products using a big steel ball.

In the video the guy is walking around in the store and destroying iPhones and Macs. The other customers and employees are left stunned.

If you try to measure the damage, it would be around tens of thousands of dollars.

Nintendo shares surge on Super Mario game for iPhone

Super Mario Run will be released in Apple's App Store in December in more than 100 countries.

It will be free to download but users will have to pay for the full game.

Apple sees iPhone sales drop again but beats forecasts

The US tech giant sold 40.4 million iPhones in its third quarter, slightly above forecasts of 40.02 million.

China rules against Apple over iPhone patent claim

The iPhone 6 and 6S models are similar to Shenzhen Baili's little-known 100C phone, the authority ruled.

In theory, this could lead to iPhone sales being halted in Beijing but sales continue as Apple has appealed to a higher court.

The tech giant said the handset is still available throughout China.

12 ways to improve your iPhone's battery life

You know what hasn't changed, though? Battery life. Sure, the actual battery has been made physically smaller than the iPhone 6, yet somehow it lasts just as long.

That said, as much as we love our iPhones, they're just not the longest-lasting mobiles on the block and sometimes struggle to make it through a heavy day of usage on a single charge unless you've gone Plus-size. That dreaded 'battery low' alert can pop up at the most inopportune of moments, but not if you make 'eking out' your speciality.

iPhone 7 rumoured to boast six-core chip

Reports circulating on Chinese social network Weibo suggest that the handset will be powered by a processor with six cores, according to AppleInsider.

This would be quite a jump for Apple, considering the current-generation A9 chipset powering the iPhone 6S packs only two cores.

Samsung, TSMC and Intel are among the component makers said to be jostling for the rights to produce the A10 processor for Apple.

Overnight phone charging does not destroy the battery

Answering a question on Quora, tech writer Jesse Hollington refuted recent reports that overnight charging does lasting damage.

"You simply can't overcharge an iPhone, or any other modern electronic device, for that matter," wrote Hollington. "When your iPhone is plugged in and reaches 100%, it switches to external power and simply runs from that."

The explanation is that any device that uses a Lithium Ion or Lithium Polymer battery must incorporate a charging circuit that cuts off charging power when it hits 100%.

iOS 9 gets hit by download errors

Some iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users and developers are reporting difficulty downloading Apple's latest operating system update, with 'Software Update Failed' error messages prevalent.

Fan site 9to5Mac reports the error for over-the-air users could be related to server load trouble.

Earlier today, Apple delayed the release of its iPhone and iPad-friendly iOS 9 patch watchOS at the very last minute.

Apple's watchOS 2 release delayed due to bug

Scheduled to roll out today (September 16) alongside the iPhone and iPad-friendly iOS 9 patch, the watchOS 2 has now been officially pushed back by Apple at the last minute.

"We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected. We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly," an official Apple spokesperson told Digital Spy.

Despite confirming the delay, the iPhone 6S maker has failed to confirm when exactly we can now expect the first major Apple Watch software update to land.

Google tries to woo iPhone owners with android watch app

The move thrusts Google on to Apple's turf in an attempt to boost the lackluster sales of watches running on its Android Wear software. The program uniting the devices running on different operating systems is being released Monday in Apple's app store.

Until now, Android watches only worked with smartphones powered by Android software, just as the Apple Watch is designed to be tethered exclusively to the iPhone.
