Well, iOS 8.1 seemed to have gotten off with a less glitchy start than a few other software launches lately, and Apple Pay seems to be making the news. Will you be using your iPhone 6 at the checkout counter? Not if you go to one drug store. Meanwhile, it's beginning to look a lot like October out there, and at least ten apps want to get you ready for the season.

It's well known that Apple was a little late to the streaming music party, and thus its fantastically expensive acquisition of Beats Music and Beats Electronics makes sense for a company looking to get ahead in the business. It'll need it, too. The Wall Street Journal reported today that traditional digital music sales on iTunes have dropped by 13 percent so far this year.

Thus continues the trend from last year, when Apple's digital sales started declining for the first time as the market moved away from purchased songs and albums and more toward on-demand subscription services like Spotify, Google Play Music, and, of course, Beats Music. The Journal repeated rumors that Apple plans to rebrand the service sometime in the near future.

"The plummeting download numbers help illustrate why Apple bought the $10-a-month subscription streaming service Beats Music earlier this year, as part of its $3 billion acquisition that included headphone maker Beats Electronics. Apple is rebuilding Beats Music and plans to relaunch it next year as part of iTunes, according to a person familiar with the matter."

Additional rumors state that Apple may bring the required subscription down to just $5 per month in order to remain competitive in an increasingly crowded market.

For consumers, at least, the news that the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 would support a SIM card that could freely be switched out among AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and EE in the United Kingdom seemed like a dream come true. Unfortunately, AT&T refuses to play along. Word surfaced at numerous sources today that anyone who connects their new iPad to an AT&T data plan will find their Apple SIM cards locked to the carrier.

As Apple says on its site, “When you choose AT&T on iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, AT&T dedicates Apple SIM to their network only." That means that if you ever want to switch to another carrier, you'll need to buy another Apple SIM card from an Apple retail store or approved partner. On the bright side, they typically cost only $10 or so.

It's a low blow, no doubt, but hardly surprising considering how tenaciously the carrier held on to the iPhone during its early years. But at least AT&T customers have the option to switch, even if it's saddled with petty inconveniences — Verizon customers can't use Apple's self-branded SIM card at all.

If you're worried, no, AT&T's locked SIM card doesn't mean that the iPad itself is locked. (AT&T confirmed this earlier today in a statement to Re/code.) When it's time to switch, just pull out AT&T's antisocial card and pop in a new Apple SIM card, and it should work as well as before.

If you've got an Apple, Mac, or iOS tech question, we've got the answer. In this week's Ask, we'll let you know how to restore your Mac monitor when the resolution gets thrown out of whack.

Question

Suddenly (possibly due to a small child) everything on my Mac is too big for the screen. I have to drag the mouse to the right-hand side of the screen to see the clock, etc. I’ve tried zooming out, and that doesn’t help. All of the text seems distorted. Can you help?

Answer

The wrong resolution could be set on your Mac for a few different reasons. The main reason is that the actual resolution of your Mac has changed. To check this, navigate to Apple menu > System Preferences > Displays, and check to make sure that the “Resolution” option is set to “Best for display.” 

Usually when the screen contents doesn’t fit to the display, and moving your mouse from side to side only scrolls the screen, then an accessibility setting has been changed. To check this, navigate to Apple menu > System Preferences > Accessibility > Zoom. Once here, ensure that the options for “Use keyboard shortcuts to zoom” is left unchecked, and also make sure that “Use scroll gesture with modifier keys to zoom” is left unchecked. Disabling these options will disable the Mac’s built-in accessibility scrolling. 


When certain accessibility settings are enabled, the screen will be zoomed in so that you can more easily see certain items up close. Disable these to prevent accidental zooming.

After disabling these features, your display should fix itself and you should no longer have this issue persist on your Mac, since we’ve disabled the options that could accidentally enable this feature in the future.
