Don’t Get Too Excited That Apple is Testing Out Folding Screens From Samsung

Earlier this week, reports started circulating that Apple is testing out folding screen samples from Samsung for potential use in future products. This is certainly notable, since Apple already sources most of it’s OLED screens from them and because Samsung is putting so much R&D emphasis on folding screen tech. However, while some may see this as a sign that a folding iPhone is inevitable and coming soon, I just see it as business as usual at Apple.

All Hail Mark Gurman: Apple Event For Watch and iPads Scheduled for September 15th

Apple Event on September 15, 2020

Yesterday, I said that there would be a showdown between several Apple leakers and analysts. Sources would be weighed and found to be legit, or possibly just found out. Well, hopefully no one loses their job over who they told what and when, but after this morning’s tempest in a teapot full of Apple fans, we have a clear winner by a landslide- Mark Gurman of Bloomberg.

There Will Be a Battle of Apple Leakers Tomorrow

Mark Gurman. Jon Prosser. L0vetodream. Komiya. LeaksApplePro. Some are well-known and others are up-and-coming. Some release rumors and information often and others sparingly. What do they have in common right now? All of them have predictions for what Apple will do tomorrow, with some bits and pieces lining up and others not so much.

There have been all kinds of recent rumors, several of them conflicting, related to Apple devices that are coming this year. While it’s seems almost certain that this year’s standard iPhones will arrive in October, with the Pro models coming sometime in November, there are still plenty of other devices waiting in the pipeline. When will they show up? Will some of them arrive this week?

There Are a Couple of Notable Apple Anniversaries Today

Tim Cook

Franky, I’m sick to death of writing about Apple and Epic, so I figured I would take a little time to look back this evening. First off, Tim Cook officially took the reigns from Steve Jobs nine years ago today. I remember I was working on a project in Tupelo, MS, both when it was announced that he was taking over on August 24th, and again six weeks later when Mr Jobs passed away. I was writing for iSource.com at the time and I clearly remember all of the uncertainty that seemed to surround the company at the time.

Sometimes Apple is its Own Worst Enemy. This is One of Those Times [Update: Apple Caves On One Front]

Prepear Logo

I’m pretty firmly on Apple’s side when it comes to Epic’s current lawsuit against them. However, I’ve also been pretty clear that I believe that they are going to have to change some of the App Store’s policies to restore balance to the iOS ecosystem and good faith with developers. Unfortunately, if anything, Apple seems to be doubling down on harsh enforcement of both the rules and protection of their ecosystem and its branding since Tim Cook appeared before the House Antitrust Subcommittee.

Just When I Thought I Was Out, Apple and Epic Pull Me Back In

They Pull Me Back In

I was all ready to finally start writing about Apple’s new subscription bundles, which I have been waiting three years for, and Apple has to go and put a nuclear football and launch codes in Epic’s hands.

Epic Games Dazzles the Tech Press with an Elaborate PR Stunt Aimed at Apple

Apple Logo

Honestly, I could rant about this all night. I won’t even attempt to hide my disdain for Tim Sweeney and Epic Games. I think he and his company are laughably hypocritical in their comments about openness (when it suits them) and fair play (when it doesn’t apply to their own store). I have no patience for a company that is doing a few of the very things they complain about in regards to Apple, so everything they have said today has fallen on stone deaf ears.

Jon Prosser Speaks on iPhone and iPad Release Dates and We All Listen

Apple Slices

When it comes to Apple leaks and rumors, there are a few people and publications that we listen to above the rest. Mark Gurman has been on this short list for a long time now. When it comes to supply chain news, it’s Ming-Chi Kuo, followed by Digitimes a few steps behind. Over the last year, Jon Prosser has emerged as a new Apple leaker with a track record worthy of trusting. Yesterday he brought some news that most of us have been waiting for- iPhone and iPad announcement and order date information.
