Well, some better news that doesn’t involve batteries catching fire.
Apple on Monday began collecting donations for the victims of Hurricane Matthew, which tore through a number of Caribbean countries and several U.S. states including Florida and the Carolinas. The hurricane killed hundreds and left untold numbers homeless or in need of aid.
The company is accepting donations in $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, and $200 increments, giving the whole of the money to its usual charity partner for disasters, the American Red Cross. Apple warns that people can’t use existing iTunes credit to make a donation, and that people looking to write the money off on taxes are responsible for documentation.
You can donate via apple.com, the iTunes Store and the App Store.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
