Tuesday Highlights: Well on its way to $1 Trillion valuation, Apple crosses the $700 billion mark, cementing itself as "world's largest company by market capitalization", doubling under leadership of Tim Cook — more down in our Finances section; Business Insider research suggests iPhone 6 will soar to record sales for Apple's Christmas sales, another analyst puts the numbers in the range of 60-70 million units; meanwhile, looking all the way out to 2016, Apple Watch expected to sell 27.8 million units, up from nearly 20 million sold in 2015; new report suggests iBeacon-using retailers will have upper hand over holidays due to greater acceptance of location-based offers; if you buy iPad, Macs at Apple Stores on Black Friday, Apple will hand out iTunes gift cards with purchase; Microsoft upping Apple Attack with TV adverts; Steve Jobs biopic jumps from Sony to Universal Studios, Michael Fassbender to tackle the role of the iconic co-founder; Apple receives grants for 25 patents today, including shock mounted cover glass, among other in our Hardware/Software section; The Next Web offer suggestions for developers whose app is deemed "controversial" by Apple.
