I heard the rumors this weekend, SPC (Join to see). Then I heard that the rumors were being spread by people who want to run down (discredit) Apple and their products. That's probably why someone put out the truth, such as the info in the link you posted.
I saw it on the news recently but really didn't give it much of a thought. I have nothing against Apple or their products but the only Apple product I currently use is an IPOD Classic. My phone is Android and my computers and tablet are Windows.
