Apple May Switch the Apple Watch to microLED Displays Next Year

Apple has been kicking the tires on next-gen microLED displays for a few years now. If you keep up with the company, that shouldn’t come as any surprise. While they may not be the first to roll out new technologies and materials, they are definitely working with them and planning for when the time will be right to release them in new products. When it comes to microLED, it looks like that time may be next year.

Apple Previews their New Peanuts Series and I Am All About It

From the fun, quirky and diverse characters to the cool of the laid-back West-Coast Jazz soundtracks, I have loved all of the Peanuts specials and movies since I was a kid. Is any cartoon character more loveable and easier to root for than good-old Charlie Brown? Is any cartoon dog more fun than Snoopy? Do not @ me on this.

The Brydge Pro is the Best iPad Keyboard I’ve Ever Used

I’ve heard about the Brydge Keyboard for the iPad for years and seen the glowing reviews. However, I have typically stuck with products from ZAGG and Logitech, as they tend to be a little less expensive and provide more coverage as cases. The main thing that kept me from trying the more expensive Brydge was the fact that it was much more keyboard than case, leaving the back of the iPad completely exposed. The other cases I tried had very good keyboards and provided excellent protection, making them better overall choices for me at the time.

Apple May be Stepping Up its Podcasting Game

Apple and podcasts are nearly synonymous. They have been intertwined from the outset of the genre, as the very name podcast is derived from Apple’s first major consumer electronics hit- the iPod. With all of that history, it seems a little surprising that Apple never ventured into the space that they gave an early home to and later helped to foster with a prominent position in iTunes. However, according to recent report from Bloomberg, they are about to do just that.

The Yin and Yang of the Apple Store

I have seen a lot of complaint articles and negative Twitter pile-ons about the current design and operation of Apple Stores over the past few months. Some of this was likely stirred up by the departure of Angela Ahrendts from the company. She had spent a lot of her time at Apple giving Apple Retail a new makeover, getting rid of some iconic features like the Genius Bar in favor of a more open and communal space setup.

There have been more recent comments made since the departure of Jony Ive from the company a few weeks ago. While Ahrendts was the driver behind the changes to the Apple Stores, Ive was the lead designer. As with Apple Park, his commitment to open spaces and environments is taken just about as far as it can go. Anything at the extremes like that tends to be polarizing, so most will either love it or hate it.

iPadOS 13 in Action: External Storage Lightning Strikes

While I love several of the new features in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, the ability to use external storage is one I keep coming back to. It opens up lots of new and interesting possibilities that will make certain tasks easier and may even change the amount of internal storage in the iPads that we buy. As such, I’ve been pushing the limits to see what works and what doesn’t.

Don’t Bet on Apple’s AR Glasses Being Cancelled Just Yet

Earlier today, Digitimes and Digitimes Taiwan reported on Apple’s AR Glasses, saying first that the project is cancelled and later that development has been temporarily stopped. This seems to be based on a claim that the team working on the project was disbanded and its members re-assigned to other areas within Apple in May.

Deals: AirSounds True Wireless Earbuds

One good thing about Apple making a product is that everyone and their dog is going to copy it. This is especially true from something small like the AirPods. While these AirSounds wireless buds certainly aren’t up to the original, its hard to complain if you are looking for an inexpensive substitute.
