AppleInsider reports on some major changes that Apple has just announced for its AppleCare service, and I’m sure that many of you reading this will be a little concerned by this news. The announcement took place during a town hall meeting last Thursday at Apple’s headquarters, when Apple told tech staff that AppleCare and AppleCare+ will be undergoing a major revamp this fall, with the view to both cutting costs and making the service more appealing to customers.

According to a story on AppleInsider today, car manufacturer BMW has been so inspired by the way Apple deals with its customers in its retail stores that it intends to take a leaf out of Apple’s book when it comes to the retail experience. More specifically, Advertising Age, where the story originally appeared, says that BMW is set to launch its “Genius Everywhere” program nationwide in the US in 2014. As part of the program, college students and other younger employees will be supplied with iPads and told to act in a similar way to Geniuses in Apple retail stores, which is to say they should help the customer by answering any questions, and generally help make their shopping experience in the BMW showroom go smoothly.

The about-to-be-announced iPhone 5 will be the first iOS device to use a 9-pin dock connector, with other iOS devices to follow, and AppleInsider writes that this will result in more expense for the customer, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who says that the average selling price of the new cables that will be compatible with the new dock connector will be much higher than that of the cables required to connect via the current 30-pin dock connector. The reason for the increased price point is firstly because the new connector will be smaller and thinner, therefore requiring more costly precision, durability and drop-quality assurance, and secondly because each cable is fitted with a detector integrated circuit in order to prevent the use of unauthorised cables. And while the customer will have to pay more, and the makers of unauthorised cables look like being frozen out, cable manufacturer Cheng Uei will reap the rewards of the increased price, as will Apple, of course.
