Apple has been on a hardware hot streak this week, releasing new iPads, updated iMacs and new AirPods. However, they dialed things down a bit today and quietly released their annual Spring refresh for iPhone cases and Apple Watch bands.

New AirPods Have Been Released and I AM HAPPY!!!

If you haven’t read one of the MANY times I have written about this over the last few months, I managed to lose my original AirPods last August. I used them to listen to music every night as I went to sleep so I could charge my iPhone overnight. They would inevitably fall out before morning, but I got in the habit of tracking them down as soon as I woke up.

Apple Gets Creative With its Spring Hardware Releases

While I was complimentary of Apple’s new iPad Pro and iPad Mini when they released Monday, I certainly wouldn’t call them Earth-shattering new devices. They weren’t meant to be. They are the middle-tier of the lineup and that’s not something you usually get very excited about. However, if we use the 5th Gen iPad as a guide, sometimes mundane but reasonably priced sells very well with everyday consumers.

Apple Hits Back at Spotify in Pointed Press Release

Apple doesn’t always respond immediately to situations where they are attacked or criticized. They don’t usually make pointed public responses, either. However, Tim Cook and company have made an exception in the case of Spotify, releasing a detailed and aggressively worded press release that not only answers each of their competitor’s complaints, but also takes shots for them for some of their own recent activities.

Spotify Cries to the EU that Apple is Bullying Them, but is Really Just After More Money

Spotify has decided that running to the EU and crying in public on their blog (which I refuse to link here. If you want to see it, use Google) is the best course of action to protect themselves from the big, bad Apple. In case you can’t tell, I do not care for their arguments or any that currently relate to Apple and anti-trust laws as they stand today. As you can also probably tell, I won’t be voting for Elizabeth Warren in 2020, either. I’ll have more on her insanity in a future post.

Apple usually gives us some hints as to what’s coming on their event invites, pointing the way to what’s right around the corner. Sometimes they are very subtle hints that spark interesting theories and discussion. This time around, not so much.

Apple’s AR Glasses May Be Coming Sooner Than Initially Expected

Everyone knows that Apple is heavily invested in Augmented Reality. Just as with the Apple Watch, Tim Cook has telegraphed Apple’s intentions with plenty of comments about their “interest.” Add in Apple’s ARKit, which is the perfect preparatory test bed to get developers working on AR software ahead of a hardware release, the money Apple is spending on R&D these days, and the AR-focused hires we know Apple has been making, and you have all the proof you need that Apple is working on getting into AR hardware early.
