Apple News Items You Should Check out: Aug. 4

Since I can’t cover everything, here are some recommended articles from some other sources.

Since I can’t cover everything, I like to offer a daily round-up of must-read articles from some other great websites. To wit:

° From iMore: An investigation into seven different apps on the Mac App Store, including the number one PDF reader in the U.S., has found that all of them are orchestrated by the same Chinese developer using fake reviews and command-and-control exploits to try and target users. 

° From AppleInsider: Apple and Google delisted almost 600,000 apps combined from their respective app stores, amidst a wide crackdown by Apple on abandoned applications.

° From MacRumors: AppleCare+ with theft and loss coverage is now available in three additional countries, including France, Italy, and Spain.

° From 9to5Mac: AAPL investors need to see inside the company’s “$70 billion black box,” say analysts – a reference to Apple lumping together all its Services revenue into one figure, despite the fact that it effectively covers ten different businesses with the company.

° From The Mac Observer: Rumors indicate that Apple TV+ is looking to develop content in Brazil, potentially the first content in Brazilian Portuguese for Apple.

° From the New York Daily News: A robbery victim in New York City found his stolen motorbike using Apple’s AirTags — but was then beaten up by the thieves.

° From MacVoices Live! On the new episode, Chuck Joiner, Mark Fuccio, Dave Ginsburg, Warren Sklar, Jeff Gamet, Jim Rea, and Brittany Smith finish their in-depth discussion of tech and travel. (Part 2)
