Sign Me Up For the New 6.7″ iPhone Rumors

Photo Source: Mac Otakara

Japanese blog Mac Otakara had a report yesterday about Apple’s iPhones that are coming this Fall. Sure, these rumors are almost 9 months ahead of release, but I’ll bite. Anytime we are talking about an even bigger iPhone, then I am totally on board.

Tile Tries to Take a Bite Out of Apple

Tile decided to take its beef with Apple mainstream last week, testifying before a U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s antitrust subcommittee in Colorado on Friday. Their argument is based on the facts that Apple removed Tile’s products from Apple Retail Stores, added limitations and and mandatory reminders to apps that use Location Services in iOS 13 and that Apple doesn’t allow them access to the new Ultra Wide Band chip in the latest iPhones. They also claim that Apple’s FindMy app is a knockoff of their own product.

Despite Straw Man Arguments to the Contrary, the Post-PC Era is Very Real

And it’s a good thing for ALL of us

The iPad has been with us for almost 10 years now and the personal computer hasn’t died. If anything, Windows PC and Mac sales have recovered from past swoons.  They aren’t growing as fast as they once did, but they are stable.

The Microsoft Surface has been around for close to 7 years, but all laptops haven’t suddenly adopted its unique 2-in-1 design. Some have, but the traditional laptop form factor is still with us today, and still makes up the majority of sales in the category. However, these facts do not change the fact that the Post-PC Era is very, very real.

Apple Shares Some Very Merry 2019 Numbers

You know who had a great 2019? You guessed it.. Apple broke records and managed to not only overcome a market swoon, but get back to an all-time high stock price by the end of the year. Oh,  and they managed to demonstrate that they really can deliver when it comes to new services and wearables. This is vitally important as iPhone sales level off and profits decrease.

Apple New Year’s Resolutions

Another year has ended and a new one has begun. In the time honored tradition of marking the beginning of a another trip around the sun, it’s time  to make some New Year’s Resolutions. However, rather than make them for myself this year, I’m going to set my mind to thinking of some for Apple in 2020.

Research Into Satellite Tech Shows That Apple R&D is Full of Surprises

Mark Gurman came out with a new report on Apple at Bloomberg a few days ago and it’s a doozy. I get that Apple is spending all kinds of R&D money on AR Glasses and even self-driving car tech, but satellites? This one is seriously out in left field, at least based on Apple’s current core businesses.

Apple’s December “Event” Wasn’t Much of an Event After All

A few days ago, I wrote about Apple’s rumored “event” on Apps and Media that was supposed to take place this afternoon, wondering what it would look like. It turns out this wasn’t a public-facing event at all, which actually makes more sense. Instead, this was a small gathering of press and developers at a New York apartment that Apple keeps for more intimate events and demonstrations.

What’s Up With this December Apple Event?

So we all thought there would be an Apple event back in October. It fit the pattern of recent years. There was hardware that we all thought would be released before the Holiday shopping season. The AirPods Pro and 16″ MacBook Pro seemed event-worthy when paired. Add in a rumored iPad Pro refresh, AirTiles and an Apple TV update, and it all seemed to make sense. But then October came and went with no event.

Looking for an iPad for Christmas? Now is the Time to Buy!

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. If you are celebrating here in the US today, I hope you are having a wonderful day filled with family, fun and lots of good food. I am looking forward to heading next door (yes, my Holiday travel is absolutely BRUTAL) and partaking in our family’s traditional feast in about an hour. I can’t wait. For our fairly large crew, turkey is the sideshow. My Mom’s Chicken and Dumplings and Dressing are the stars of the show. I skipped breakfast to make room, so now I’m really hungry.

Ok, back to business…

Shows What I Know: Apple Finally Releases their iPhone 11 Smart Battery Cases

Apple released their AirPods Pro to plenty of fanfare and rave reviews a few weeks ago. The common assumption at the time was that they would continue releasing additional devices and accessories that week, well ahead of Black Friday and the Holiday shopping season. However, the rest of said week came and went with nothing but silence from Apple.

Because of this, I wondered if maybe Apple was done releasing hardware for the year fifteen days ago. They had passed the point of any new releases getting prime placement during Black Friday sales, so it just seemed like maybe they were done, at least on the consumer products side. Shows what I know.

New Apple Hardware Rumors From All Sides Today

First off, a new Bloomberg report that covers multiple items lead off by saying that Apple will release a new iPad Pro in the first half of next year. This echoes an earlier report from Ming-Chi Kuo also talking about a new Pro coming in the first quarter of next year. When the rumors that a new high-end tablet would come in October didn’t materialize, Kuo’s information gained credibility. Joined by the likes of Marc Gurman, now this seems to be a very credible release timeline.
