Don’t Ever Doubt Apple’s Massive Influence Over the Tech Industry

OnePlus is a company that I have a lot of respect for. They have been able to fill a niche in the smartphone market while others companies have fallen away by listening to their users and serving them well. They make good quality hardware that works well with Android, and they have a devoted following because of it. Their market share is small and they really aren’t known anywhere outside of the tech bubble, but they have passionate fans within it for good reason.

Apple’s iPad Event is Finally Revealed!

Apple finally sent out the invites today, and Tuesday, October 30 is the day. The event is being held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn New York. While this announcement has been the worst kept secret in tech since the iPhone event wrapped with no iPad news, the date is probably the least interesting part of this announcement and invite. Here are a few things that stand out to me:

It’s official. Apple sent out invitations to all the cool kids today, and to absolutely no one’s surprise, the happy day is Wednesday, September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park. For all us small timers and working stiffs, there’s always the video stream. Not that I’m complaining.

One Step Closer to iPhone 8- Apple Officially Announces Event on September 12

 

Anytime Apple schedules an event it makes news, and today is no exception. Case in point- even though the September 12 date has been common knowledge for over a week now, Apple’s stock hit an all time high after the release of the official announcement today. That is a level of reach into the both the culture and the wallets of consumers that even Samsung is likely still envious of.

Apple Slices: The iPhone 8 Home Stretch Begins

It won’t be long now. The Beta versions of iOS 11 are hitting every week, and the rumors faster than that. We have component leaks.

We also have a potential announcement date now, and may finally know the starting price. It’s all starting to come together. Let’s get to it.

The Tech Press Was Half Right About the Next iPhone Having USB-C


The tech blogosphere was awash in a new rumor that gained steam over a week and seemed to peak yesterday- Apple would abandon the Lightning Connector for the next iPhone, which will have a USB-C charging port. I was skeptical as soon as I heard this because it would frankly be so out of character for Apple. They have always preferred to stick with proprietary connectors on their mobile devices, and have never shown any signs of changing this philosophy. However, there were some heavy hitters, such as the Wall Street Journal, reporting this yesterday, so it gained a lot of steam….until today.

What’s Coming Up at the Next iPad Event?

IPad Pros

As we close the book on January, the rumors of a March Apple event centered on the iPad are coming fast and furious now. There are multiple reports of a new iPad Pro in a different size, an Apple Pencil refresh, and potentially some other Apple device updates, as well. With the iPad line progressively trending away from the Air and Mini and toward the Pro line over the last year, this next event should give us some clarification as Apple’s intentions for the tablet category going forward. This will be especially interesting given the continuing declines in year over year sales and profits for the iPad line that we recently learned about during Apple’s quarterly sales call.
