We Have the Proof- Supply Chain Sources Can’t Tell How Well the iPhone Sells

Since the third quarter of last year didn’t cast enough doubt on using sources in the supply chain to predict iPhone sales, maybe their latest abysmal failure will. We should be able to put it to bed now, and any analyst or tech writer worth their salt should, too. Tim Cook, the master of the supply chain, knows what he is doing, and the bought and paid for sources at Foxconn, Samsung, and other component makers don’t, at least when it comes to Apple’s iPhones sales.

Tuesday Will Tell the Tale of Apple Stock and Hardware Success

We’ve had a progressive amount of hand wringing and reading of supply chain tea leaves, all leading up to Apple’s 2nd Quarter Earnings Report, which hits tomorrow. Most of the news has been negative, especially anything regarding the iPhone X and HomePod. However, it seems that there are now some who expect Apple’s stock to weather the storm and rebound based on better than expected sales and numbers elsewhere. If they are correct, Apple could make back the over 9% its stock has lost over the past month very quickly. If not, it will be interesting to see if it slides more or just stabilizes.

Deals: Dashlane Password Manager Premium Subscription

A few years ago, Mat Honan’s article about his experience of being hacked in Wired Magazine scared me into action. It described the gory details of the author having his digital life turned inside out to get to his desirable three syllable Twitter handle. This included having all of his devices wiped, including his personal Mac which didn’t have a current backup at the time. Ouch. It was a vivid reminder of how easy it is to not take security seriously because of how inconvenient it can be.

Find My iPhone Seems Trivial Until the Day You Really Need It

I say that Find My iPhone seems trivial until you need thanks to freshly gained experience. Before, it used to be a nice feature that was really handy for tracking down the kids’ devices when they misplaced them in the house or left them out in the car. Before yesterday, the only time I had to use it to track down something that was really lost was when my daughter left my wife’s iPhone 5 sitting on the trunk of my car one Summer night.

Deals: iPM 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad

Apple is taking its sweet time getting the new AirPower wireless charging mat out the door, so most of those iPhone 8 and X users who are interested in wireless charging have moved on or are in the process of doing so. While there are plenty of mats and charging pucks on the market that are compatible with new iPhones, the advantage of the coming AirPower is that it will charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods at the same time.

Apple Expands its AI Offices in Seattle Again. Will it Matter?

Apple Finally Kills Off the AirPort WiFi Router…But Why?

The demise of the Apple’s AirPort WiFi Router has been like watching something fade away in slow motion. The AirPort line hasn’t been updated since 2013, which is an eternity in the tech world and Apple actually disbanded the team that worked on these products back in 2016. Based on those facts alone, I’m kind of surprised that Apple let the line linger this long.

Will Google Ever Stop Killing Off its Services?

While this a bit off the beaten path here at iPad Insight, a discussion about Google is still fitting anywhere technology is covered. Never mind the fact that Apple and Google are head-to-head rivals in many areas, but there are still many iOS users who take advantage of multiple Google services on their devices. Despite pulling back in some areas over time, I still use a few myself.
