You never know what you might find when you take an Apple device apart. In the case of the HomePod Mini, that would be a previously unmentioned temperature and humidity sensor. To some of you, that may sound like something random to include in a speaker, but thanks to my line of work I know the value of a well placed environmental sensor or two.

There’s something to be said for having a battery pack with large capacity at the ready while traveling. No matter what mobile devices you need to charge, one of these packs can get the job done. I have one that will even fully charge a 12.9″ iPad Pro.

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.

After ordering as soon as they became available on Amazon, I guess I was one of the earlier recipients of Anker’s new PowerCore Magnetic 5K MagSafe-compatible battery pack. It came a day before we left for our vacation, which I figured would be the perfect time to try it out.

Pour One Out For the Original HomePod

My family left for a spring break vacation yesterday, so I’ve been a little out of touch. Imagine my surprise when I checked the Apple news this evening and saw that Apple has officially killed off the original HomePod after its rocky three year run.
