Is Apple Listening to Us?

There was a moment during Apple’s iPhone Event last week that got a lot of people’s attention, mine included. When Phil Schiller started talking about significantly better battery life for all new iPhone models, tech writers, bloggers, and aficionados alike took notice. It was even bigger news when early reviews confirmed Apple’s claims.

This is exactly what many of us have been asking Apple to give us for a while now. However, they have usually seemed too concerned with thin and light to worry about adding battery capacity.

The Results Are In For Apple Arcade and the iPhones 11 and 11 Pro

This year feels a little different. Recent iPhones have drawn reviews ranging from solid to excellent, but they are often qualified with comparisons to the competition and the refrains that Apple has lost its ability to innovate and keep up. Well, they have been keeping a pretty deliberate pace at times so I can’t say the rep isn’t totally deserved. Reviews of products other than the Apple Watch and iPad often draw the same comparisons. But as I said above, this year isn’t quite the same.

I Love Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program

If you haven’t used Apple’s in-house payment plan for iPhones, the you might not understand why I’m a fan. I’ve used it for a few years now, after one year of AT&T’s Next. That last comment is one big reason why: it gets you de-coupled from your cell provider. That, and the fact that it offered me an easy way to upgrade my iPhone yearly by going directly to Apple were big reasons why I made the switch. Add in an easy way to spread out payments for AppleCare+ (now with optional Theft and Loss prevention), and I was sold.

Apple’s Biggest Gift To Me This Week

So what was Apple’s biggest gift to me from this week’s event? It wasn’t an iPhone. In fact, it wasn’t any piece of hardware. It was not a new Apple service or subscription, nor was it a piece of software. It is a valuable commodity and some spend a lot of money in search of it, but it isn’t something you can actually buy. It is the gift of sleep.
