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.

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.

Apple Events Are Just Around the Corner. Now We’re Just Waiting for the Dates

Apple Event

Seven days ago, Jon Prosser tweeted out a tentative schedule for upcoming Apple hardware releases, showing one slated for the week of September 7, one the week of October 13 and the last event sometime in November. This lines up with other leaks that came before and it also comes from a source with a much better than average track record.

There’s an Interesting New iPad Air Camera Rumor

iPad Air Mockup

A new iPad Air is expected sometime between now and the end of October, so it makes sense that rumors about the features, components and the actual release date will start to pick up in the coming weeks. There was an interesting but odd leak this week about the new iPad Air’s camera that I’m having trouble wrapping my head around.

A New Article Sheds Light on How Apple is Using AI and Machine Learning

John Giannandrea

When thinking of AI at Apple, the first thing most of us focus on is Siri. That often isn’t a very positive association. However, there is a lot more that Apple is doing with AI and Machine Learning today that is under the hood. While many of these new features may be less obvious, they are making a positive impact on Apple’s products.

Apple’s AirPods Pro Arrive With More Goodies Likely To Come Soon

Apple has the greatest timing with these things. If they are going to drop a product out of the clear blue sky with a press release, I always know for certain it will be a day when I’m slammed at work…just like today. I did finally see that they had revealed the AirPods Pro around 3 hours late and got my order in. I am supposed to get mine on 10/31, which is a day late, but not too bad, I guess.

Let the Apple Watch Series 5 Rumors Begin with New Finishes

There have been plenty of iPhone rumors over the last few months, but that isn’t anything new. However, things have been significantly quieter on the Apple Watch front. That’s the thing about the iPhone. Even with its sales and profits hovering between stable and decline, it still tends to hog the spotlight.

Apple Responds to Outcry Over Siri Grading

When you make privacy a brand, you have to make sure that your house is completely in order. While Apple still takes user data privacy more seriously than their competitors, that doesn’t mean they are beyond reproach. The world saw a great example of this a few days ago when we learned that third-party contractors were listening to recorded Siri interactions for grading purposes.

Don’t Bet on Apple’s AR Glasses Being Cancelled Just Yet

Earlier today, Digitimes and Digitimes Taiwan reported on Apple’s AR Glasses, saying first that the project is cancelled and later that development has been temporarily stopped. This seems to be based on a claim that the team working on the project was disbanded and its members re-assigned to other areas within Apple in May.

Logitech’s Slim Folio Pro: A Great Keyboard Wrapped in a Mediocre Case

I bought Logitech’s Slim Folio Pro with the intent of keeping it and reviewing it over a long period. Unfortunately, It just didn’t cut it to the point where I took it back to get my money out of it before the return window closed. Even though I had read reviews that weren’t great and knew that the design was different from the Slim Combo case that I loved, I still thought the keyboard would be enough to keep me using it.

Apple’s Supreme Setback

Apple was dealt a setback today, as the US Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 that individual purchasers do have the right to sue them for antitrust behavior. Today’s vote stems from a 2011 lower court case, Apple v Pepper, in which a group of individuals sued the company claiming they were using monopoly pricing power in the App Store. Apple contested the individual users’ right to sue them directly based on court precedent and the matter made it all the way to the highest court in the land.
