While a new hardware device release can feel like Christmas Day to many Apple fans, their coming AirTags are a little different. Rarely is an Apple device so blatantly utilitarian. However, that’s also part of the appeal for someone like myself.

Podswap Delivers a Convenient Solution to Battle e-Waste One Set of AirPods at a Time

Podswap

It’s hard to beat the convenience of a good pair of wireless earbuds. Apple’s AirPods have been leaders in this category since they were released and really launched the product category into the mainstream. They succeeded by streamlining the process of connecting a pair of buds and then making it incredibly easy to swap them between devices. All of the above can be a pain using traditional Bluetooth connections, but Apple did a masterful job of removing all of that friction and frustration.

Sounds Like Apple’s Spring Event Will Be Delayed [Updated]

Or maybe a more fitting title would be Tim Cook Strikes Back

I posted yesterday about Apple’s long-rumored Spring Event featuring new iPad Pros being “delayed.” Based on some information that came out after I wrote that post, it looks like that event wasn’t delayed at all, because it never existed in the first place.

Sounds Like Apple’s Spring Event and the New iPad Pro Will Be Delayed

Apple Event Sept 15, 2020

As I get older, I find fewer reasons to wish for time to fly. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t get a little disappointed when a little bit of Apple gratification is delayed. It looks like that is about to be the case again, as Apple’s Spring Event for the iPad Pro, AirTags and potentially a couple of other devices have likely been pushed back to April.

So About Apple Coming After Accounts and Services Over Late Apple Card Payments

If you are going to take a big swing at Apple, get your facts straight first.

I saw an interesting story yesterday about a person having some trouble with Apple. That isn’t too uncommon. The story often plays out the same- the little guy is unwittingly, but coldly stepped on by the Big Tech behemoth. It’s an easy sell as a story, and we all know that a negative story about Apple brings the clicks in droves.

Sometimes it’s a simple as that. Apple is a massive company and sometimes massive companies make ill-conceived or purely bureaucratic decisions that hurt their customers. Sometime Apple’s leaders knowingly take up positions that aren’t all that friendly to their users. But what happens when context arrives a day or two after the opening shots and it turns out that things didn’t play out that way?

An Apple MagSafe Battery Pack and a Southern Snowpocalypse

Snow at home

What do those two things have to with each other? Very little, but bear with me for a moment.

Since Apple announced MagSafe magnetic wireless charging along with the iPhone 12, people have been wondering when we would start seeing MagSafe battery packs for iPhone. The second question is whether Apple would replace their Smart Battery Case with MagSafe battery pack of their own.

Apple’s Spring iPad Event Rumored to Be Planned For March 16th

Magic Keyboard

We’ve been hearing rumors of Apple planning an event for this spring since late last year. That’s no surprise, because March events have become commonplace on Apple’s yearly calendar and the only reason we didn’t have one last year was because of the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now we have our first prediction of a date for that event.

Epic Games’ North Dakota Bill to Cripple Apple’s App Store Fails

When news broke of an unlikely threat to Apple’s App Store from the North Dakota State Senate of all places, the first thing most of us who follow and cover Apple thought was why: why there and why now?

It Looks Like Apple is Aiming High With its Coming VR Headset

While they were all over the map these last two years, rumors of Apple’s VR and AR projects have been heading in a single direction lately and taking shape around a single product. Considering how reliable sources like The Information and Bloomberg are, I have to believe they are accurate.
