Apple TV+ and Arcade are Coming Soon. Do You Care?

Thanks to Apple’s services-focused event back in the Spring, we already know the broad strokes when it comes to Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade. The former will feature Apple’s original video content, which they have been investing increasing amounts of time and money in, while the latter is the company’s gaming subscription service that is geared toward breathing new life into paid gaming titles on the App Store.

We also know that the release dates for both are closing in as we get closer to the release of the new iPhone. However, other than the occasional preview, trailer or rumor, news of these coming subscription services has been scarce.

We are near the end of the yearly iPhone rumor cycle, as Apple’s announcement is now less than a month away. However, there are still a few minor details left to trickle out. This time, they supposedly come from a former Foxconn employee.

Donald Trump is Playing Quite the Game of Tariff Cat and Mouse with Apple

Whether you love or hate Donald Trump (and there seems to be very few people who don’t feel one way or the other), he certainly isn’t uninteresting. Whether he’s making up policy and new words on the fly, threatening to level entire nations, or drunk tweeting at 2 AM, the man is a constant stream of breaking news. One such off the cuff item was his announcement of a new round of tariffs on goods manufactured in China that goes into effect September 1st.

Is the iPhone About to Go Pro?

Rumors of an iPhone Pro have come around before, but never actually come to pass. It makes sense when you consider that Apple has a Mac Pro, a MacBook Pro, an iMac Pro and even an iPad Pro. However, they have held out from using the Pro label on a smartphone to this point.

Apple’s Move to Restrict Battery Replacements is Petty and Tone Deaf

Oh Apple, here we go again. Two years ago, Apple updated iOS with measures to throttle processors of devices with failing batteries. That part isn’t so bad, because such programming could actually save a device from either random instant shutdowns, or worse, a total failure of the processor. Unfortunately, Apple forgot to tell everyone what they were doing until some enterprising users figured it out and called them out.

The Dog Days of Apple Summer are Here

The new Apple Card is starting to slowly roll out to a few selected fans who were pre-selected. Sadly, I was not among them, but the full rollout should come in a few weeks. And this is just the tip of the Apple iceburg. Continue reading

Apple May Not Pass Along Tariff Price Increases This Year

As we near the release of the next iPhone, it’s been a bad news parade for Apple. While their quarterly results announced last week were ok, they had a mini-scandal over contractors listening to recordings of Siri interactions. Far worse, their stock price has fallen off significantly in the last two days of trading based on news of a fresh round of tariffs on goods produced in China.

Apple’s AR Projects Have a New Leader

It seems that reports of the death Apple’s AR Glasses project were greatly exaggerated. If it were so, there would be little need for Apple to promote a well-established employee to lead it. According to a report from The Information, they have done exactly that.

Apple’s Third Quarter Earnings: The Eye of the Beholder

Apple just revealed that they broke their record for third quarter revenue. That’s good, right? iPhone revenue is continuing to fall and is now less than half of Apple’s total revenue for the first time in seven years. Isn’t that terrible? Everything but the iPhone is up, especially services and wearables, and Apple beat their guidance. Awesome! Despite this and all that revenue, profits still fell year over year. APPLE IS DOOMED!!!

Apple Buying Intel’s Modem Business Brings Them More Control

In a move that has been rumored off and on for months, Apple bought Intel’s Modem business for a reported price of $1 billion. It’s a win-win for both parties, as Apple gets to move toward more control of their devices and Intel gets to offload what turned out to be a bad investment for them. This move barely puts a dent in Apple’s $225 billion dollar pile of cash, so it’s a good deal for all involved.

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.
