iPhone Preorders by the Numbers

Some of the usual suspects have started to weigh in on Apple’s Watch and iPhone XS and XS Max preorders. Leading off, Ming-Chi Kuo says that sales are following the pattern that I suggested yesterday (I make no claims of genius or inside knowledge, just common sense). He reports that sales of the iPhone XS Max are meeting expectations, which I don’t think is a surprise. It has a novelty factor that the XS no longer holds. Speaking of the XS, Kuo says that pre-orders are “lower than expected.” I don’t find this surprising in the least, either, as the majority of people who wanted this design got an X last year.

It’s Time to Make the Preorders

I love Apple hardware events and all the reveals. This year was a little light on those thanks to all of the leaks, but there were still bits and pieces to be enjoyed. I also love getting my hands on new Apple hardware. It’s the getting up at 1:45 AM Central part that I’m not so thrilled with.

Leakers Have “One More Thing” to Say Before Apple’s iPhone Event

It’s been a tough month for Apple’s poor security team. It looked like they had a pretty tight lid on things ahead of WWDC last year, as the new iPad Pro productivity features and some other items came as a surprise. Today, not so much. They can’t seem to keep a lid on anything, software or hardware, at this point. In fact, it looks like they just gave away some of the last bits and pieces of info themselves.

The Apple Watch is About to Get Bigger, But Will it Grow Up Some More?

Photo Source: 9to5Mac

Over the last week, 9to5Mac has let us know that the coming Apple Watch Series 4 will have both a little larger screen and a higher resolution. The new model’s screen is expected to be edge to edge and the resolution will jump significantly from 312 x 390 to 384 x 480. Both of these improvements will allow users to see more information at a glance (the watch face above is an excellent example), and should give developers more flexibility to create more useful apps for the platform.

Apple’s iPhone Event is a Week Away, and the Rumors are Flying Fast

At this time one week from now, the dust will all be settled and we will know what the heck Apple is up to. Today, not so much. I thought 9to5Mac’s flurry a weeks ago would take a bit of the air out of rumor silly season, but as today showed, that answer is an emphatic NO.

Here are some of the new predictions of what Apple will be releasing, and the names they will go by. The good, the bad, and the just plain dumb.

The Cat’s Out of the Bag- Apple’s Event and New iPhones in Focus

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. Apple’s now polished video streams certainly beat the old days of following live blogs to get the news as things unfolded.
