In today's Apple Daily, photos of the recently rumored "iPhone 6c" are already making their way across the Internet. In other news, you'll apparently have to sign up for a try-on reservation if you expect to buy an Apple Watch in-store, and even then you might have to wait for it. Also, Apple announced the date of its next earnings call.

Chinese Supplier 'Leaks' Photos of Rumored 'iPhone 6c'

Well, that didn't take long. Only a few days after word dropped that Apple might be releasing a smaller, low-cost "iPhone 6c" model later this year, a Chinese parts supplier by the name of Future Supplier (via Nowhereelse.fr) already has some allegedly leaked photos of the device. By and large, it looks like what you'd expect — a more modern take on the iPhone 5c. But it's not that much more modern, and indeed, by eyeball estimates alone, it's thought to sport another 4-inch screen.

Subtle details in the design even suggest that the device won't be that different from the iPhone 5s internally. For one, it features the same type of LED flash design as the 5s, and for another, the device features the same type of speaker grill. Although it seems a shame to release a "new" phone with specs that might be as many as two generations old, the move would be well in line with Apple's rumored intentions to sell the device for even less than the iPhone 5c sold for in 2013.

Try-On Reservations Apparently Mandatory for Buying an Apple Watch In-Store

A common thread running through all of the rumors and news about the Apple Watch that we've heard so far is that buyers will have to sign up for presentations in order to handle the device. If you want to try on one of the more "normal" versions, for instance, you'll have up to 15 minutes to try it out in the presence of an Apple employee; if you want to try out the mega-expensive Apple Watch Edition, you'll reportedly get 30 minutes.

But according to "leaked" documentation obtained by MacRumors, though, that's not mere perception, nor is it a mere nod to Apple's customer service. Apparently, if you're at all interested in getting one of the devices, you'll have to sign up for "Product Reservations." Walk-in purchases, it seems, are currently being discouraged.

"If a customer walks in and wants to purchase a watch, offer the option to try on a watch," the documentation reportedly says. "Then help them place an order online or through the Apple Store app."

The upshot of this is that the appointment to try on the device does not necessarily mean you'll get to walk out with a watch, even after the official April 24 release date.

Apple to Announce Q2 2015 Earnings Results on April 27

Apple today updated its investor relations page to report April 27 as the date of its earnings call for the second quarter of 2015, which means we'll finally get to learn it Apple managed to sustain the massive, record-breaking sales it achieved in the first quarter.

The call itself will take place at 2:00 p.m. PST, but as is standard with Apple, the earnings report itself will likely be available at around 1:30 p.m. In its first earnings call for the year, Apple reported that it expected to reach between $52 to $55 billion in revenue for the second quarter, which equates into a gross margin of approximately 39 percent.

Every Monday we show you how to do something quick and cool with Mac OS X. Sometimes it's a tutorial on a lesser-known feature, other times it's a trick that uses built-in functionality such as Terminal — either way, these simple tips can make life better and easier, and they don’t require any special knowledge. All you need to do is follow the instructions!

Maybe you've just replaced a drive in your Mac and need to reinstall Yosemite, or perhaps you need to upgrade a Mac to the latest operating system without taking it online. Whatever your reason, there is a simple way to make a bootable drive of the OS X Installer so that you can easily update your operating system.

What You'll Need:

  • USB thumb drive or hard drive with at least 8GBs of space available
  • OS X Yosemite Installer from the Mac App Store
  • DiskMaker X (This is an AppleScript app that will automatically format the drive you want to use as a bootable disk, then copy over the installer so that the disk can be used to boot into the OS X Installer.)

Once you have these items available, you'll be ready to begin creating the bootable installer by following these steps:

  1. Connect the drive that you want to use as a bootable disk to your Mac.
  2. Open the DiskMaker X app, then select either "An 8GB USB thumbdrive" or "Another kind of Disk" when the app launches.
  3. When prompted, select the name of the drive that will be used as a bootable drive.


After doing this, DiskMaker X will spring into action and format the drive, then proceed to copy over the installer files. By default, it should automatically find the OS X Installer inside of your Applications folder. If it doesn't, then you'll be prompted to select its location.



This process can take a while depending on the speed of your Mac — anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. When the process has been completed, you'll see a confirmation dialog appear, and you'll be able to safely eject the drive.

To use the installer to load Yosemite onto a computer, boot or reboot the Mac while holding down the Option key, then select the drive from the choices displayed. You'll be booted into the OS X Yosemite installer.
