Are Apple’s New Headphones Coming Soon?

Beats Solo Pro

There have been rumors of Apple-branded wireless, over the ear headphones around for over a year now. There was some evidence that they might arrive alongside the new iPad Pros and MacBook Air a little over a month ago, but they slid through Apple’s first release window of the year along with the coming AirTags tracking devices.

Reading between the lines of some recent news, I can’t help but think that these new headphones will be arriving sooner rather than later.

The Good and Bad of Apple Purchasing Dark Sky

Dark Sky Weather

Acqui-hires are nothing new in Silicon Valley. In fact, it seems like they happen on  a daily basis if you are paying attention. However, while many of them either go unnoticed or barely warrant a blip on the tech news radar, there are some that make some bigger waves. Apple’s acquisition of weather service and app Dark Sky is definitely among the latter.

My Decade with the iPad: Leaving the Fold

The iPad officially turned 10 years old yesterday! Hurray! A full decade has now passed and so much has changed with the hardware and software of the iPad and how I use them. It’s natural to look back after a milestone, so now is a good time to do just that. (You can see my previous strolls down memory lane here and here.)

Sources Say Another iPad Pro is Still Coming in 2020, But Disagree On Features

Apple has just announced and hasn’t even delivered the latest refresh of their iPad Pros and the news of the new just can’t be stopped. The new 11″ and 12.9″ models are modest upgrades, but they are arriving along with the new mouse and trackpad features included in iPadOS 13.4, and the new Magic Keyboard that is coming in May looks pretty amazing. However, even after these announcements earlier this week, the rumors of another iPad Pro update in the Fall still persist.

Apple Spilled the Beans on its New iPad Pros

Yesterday brought all the proof we need that new iPad Pros are coming very soon. First off, we got an old reliable indicator from across the world. The Eurasian Economic Commission, which has turned out to be a very reliable indicator of impending Apple releases, posted filings for new iPad Pros yesterday.

Apple Stores Close and Apple Cardholders Get Relief in the Wake of COVID-19

Apple isn’t always the first company to make a move that benefits its customers and employees over the stockholders. That is often the nature of large, publicly traded companies. However, that isn’t always the case that Apple puts profits over people. Whatever criticism they deservedly received for things like their early waffling when it came to the warranties on Butterfly Keyboards on MacBooks, or their initial handling of Battery-gate, there are still times when they get it right, right off the bat.

There have been a few instances of Apple doing this recently, such as sending care packages to some of their retail employees in China under quarantine and proactively moving WWDC completely online. They have piled up a little more good corporate karma since then with their recent moves regarding Apple Stores and the Apple Card.

Changes Are Coming to the Mac in 2020

According to Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5Mac), Apple will be making good on a couple of the key expectations that consumers and tech pundits alike have for the Mac over the next year.

9to5Mac is Winning the Apple Rumor Cycle By a Mile

9to5Mac has been a trusted source for Apple news for a long time. However, I didn’t really consider them to be quite on the level with Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo when it came to new device and iOS rumors. Gui Rambo has made quite an impact over the last couple of years revealing lots of information hidden inside of Apple’s various OS betas, but those details don’t start coming until after WWDC, when those of us with Apple Dev Accounts get our hands on the goodies.

Apple Faces Multiple Decisions in the Face of COVID-19’s Impact

I don’t envy Tim Cook right now. His Chinese supply chain, the one-time envy off the tech world and backbone of Apple’s amazing growth over the last 15 years, is still moving slowly as SE Asia recovers from COVID-19’s initial round of effects. However, even as things gradually return to some kind of normalcy on the other side of the world, the pace of production will be slowed for months to come. Now Apple also has the potential impact of this new threat here at home to deal with, as well.

Ming-Chi Kuo Predicts Two Additional Mini-LED iPads for 2020 and 2021

This along with two more iPads and two more Macs

Last Fall, Ming-Chi Kuo made a prediction that Apple was developing a new 16″ MacBook Pro and a new 12.9″ iPad Pro for release in the Fall of 2020. Now he is back (via MacRumors) with a new report that Apple will have four additional devices to go with these, including two additional iPad models.

I Hope Apple Ignores John Gruber’s Rants on the iPad

Contrary to what you might think after reading that headline, I am not a hater. Not at all. I have actually been a fan of John Gruber’s writing and podcasting for several years and I typically agree with his point of view regarding Apple and the tech world, in general. However, I can’t say that’s the case when it comes to the iPad.
