Earth Day, OS X Beta, and More

It’s been a busy (earth) day for Apple.  

The company today celebrated Earth Day with banners promoting its efforts to help save the environment.  Apple touts its eco-friendly footprint with the tagline”there are some ideas we want every company to copy.”  The phrase is clearly a jab at Samsung, Apple’s greatest rival and a known copycat.Image

The company also extended it’s iPhone buy back program to iPads as well, allowing customers to sell back old iPads to Apple.  Apple updated it’s logo for Earth Day with a green leaf and reports indicate that Apple Stores around the world have done so as well.

In a surprising turn of events, Apple will now allow non-developers to receive free OS X betas.  Previously, only registered developers had access to pre-release OS X software.  This leads us to wonder if Apple will offer OS X 10.10 (expected to be revealed at WWDC in June) to the public as a pre-release.

Lastly, the company released iOS 7.1.1 with bug fixes and Touch ID improvements.  Apple also updated it’s App Store rules and updated the store with minor enhancements in iOS 7.1.1.

Wow, busy day!
