OS X El Capitan, the latest major release of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system, will be available Wednesday, September 30, as a free update for Mac users. El Capitan builds on the groundbreaking features and beautiful design of OS X Yosemite. “People love using their Macs, and one of the biggest reasons is the power and ease of use of OS X,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “El Capitan refines the Mac experience and improves performance in a lot of little ways that make a very big difference. Feedback from our OS X beta program has been incredibly positive and we think customers are going to love their Macs even more with El Capitan.”

Apple has announced it has sold more than 13 million new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models, a new record, just three days after launch. iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available in more than 40 additional countries beginning October 9 including Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain, and Taiwan. The new iPhones will be available in over 130 countries by the end of the year. “Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Customers’ feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can’t wait to bring iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to customers in even more countries on October 9.”

At long last, it's the official launch day for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, which means that the rumors for Apple's next batch of phones should start popping up in, oh, a week. In the meantime, we've got some news on how the phone doesn't bend and shoots great videos (yay) and how you'll need a subscription to use Microsoft Office on the upcoming iPad Pro (boo). Oh, and Aaron Sorkin really doesn't like what Apple CEO Tim Cook said about the movie he wrote the screenplay for.

New Video Shows iPhone 6s Plus Strongly Resistant to Bending

All right, let's get this one out of the way — no, the iPhone 6s Plus doesn't bend as "easily" as the iPhone 6 Plus. Apple used stronger 7000 series aluminum and strengthened the weaker points of the shell, which means that we likely won't see another "Bendgate" this year.

The video that started it all last year came from Unbox Therapy, but today's video comes from FoneFox (also on YouTube), where they subjected the iPhone 6s Plus to the same bend-the-device-over-your-thumbs test from last year.

Not only did the latest phone survive what seems to be the same force, the narrator also shows that the phone actually sprang back in place after enduring the punishment. FoneFox did, in fact, get the iPhone 6s Plus to bend, but only by bringing in a second person. FoneFox readily admitted, though, that the device is unlikely to see this kind of force in your pocket.

Last month Unbox Therapy itself managed to get its hands on one of the shells for the then-unreleased iPhone 6s, but even without the internal components installed, its findings mirrored those of FoneFox.


Filmmakers Shoot Short Documentary Entirely on iPhone 6s Plus

If you're more interested in what the iPhone 6s Plus' 4K-capable camera actually does, check out the video below. It's a short documentary called "The Painter of Jalouzi," and it was shot entirely on an iPhone 6s Plus. And the results are astounding.

Filmmakers David Darg and Bryn Mooser shot the documentary for Ryot.org, and they had this to say:

"In a relatively short amount of time, we went from terrible pixelated phone photos, to this, which is just as good as cameras that cost tens of thousands of dollars," Darg said. "When we heard the new iPhone would shoot in 4K, we thought about what we could shoot that would really demonstrate the power of the resolution. Jalouzi is so visually impacting. The mountainside is full of detail and color, so it's the ultimate test of a camera's ability. Plus, we’ve been wanting to tell the story for a long time."


Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin Has Harsh Words for Tim Cook

Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film has already received numerous accolades ahead of its October 23 wide release date, but Apple CEO Yim Cook lightly criticized the film (and others) as "opportunistic" during his recent interview on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the film's award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin doesn't exactly agree with that, to put it lightly.

"Nobody did this movie to get rich," Sorkin said, afterwards noting that Cook should see the movie before making any judgements. But it gets even more harsh than that.

"Third," Sorkin said, "if you've got a factory full of children in China assembling phones for 17 cents an hour, you've got a lot of nerve calling someone 'opportunistic.'"

Yowza. Cook has got to see that as a heavy blow, especially considering all the measures Apple has taken to improve lives at the factories where many of its parts are made (and those of its competitors) since he assumed leadership. Cook, who has made it his mission to make Apple a "force for good," may have a hard time letting such a comment roll off his back. Still, Sorkin is right about one thing — Cook acknowledged in his Colbert interview that he hadn't actually seen any of the new films.

On the other hand, Cook has read the Walter Isaacson biography on which Sorkin's screenplay is based, and in an interview with Fast Company Cook branded it a "tremendous disservice" to Jobs and that "The person I read about there was somebody I would never have wanted to work with over all this time."


Microsoft Office for iPad Pro to Require Subscription

Microsoft won a lot of goodwill from the Apple community recently when it announced that Office apps for the iPad and iPhone were now free for both viewing and editing, but as Ars Technica reports, it seems that won't be the case for the upcoming iPad Pro. The 12.9-inch screen is just too big, claims the Redmond, Washington giant.

The company means that literally. Microsoft has a 10.1-inch screen size limit for access to the free viewing and editing features, which wasn't a problem for the 9.7-inch iPad Air and the 7.9-inch iPad mini. To enjoy the iPad Pro's big picture, unfortunately, you're going to need to purchase an Office 365 subscription.

If you're still interested after that, Microsoft offers Office 365 Personal for one person for $69.99 a year or $6.99 per month, and then there's its five-person Office 365 Home plan for $99.99 per year or $9.99 per month. Both services allow access to Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Access for PCs, tablets, and smartphones.
