What to expect from Apple’s October iPhone event: iPhone 12, AirTags, over-the-ear AirPods, and more!

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Next week’s Apple event could see a staggering amount of new hardware devices announced. Apple’s annual device-centric events were thrown into a bit of a tailspin this year thanks to the, you guessed it, COVID-19 pandemic. Why the virus impacted hardware-unveiling events mainly comes down to disruption in logistics and supply chains in Asia, thus pushing manufacturing—and by extension, hardware announcements—back several weeks.

Apple’s ‘Hi, Speed’ event: When and where to watch the launch of the iPhone 12 today

{ object.primary_image.title }}

This iPhone launch event is more important for the company than recent events because the iPhone 12 series is supposed to represent a “supercycle” for the smartphone. If Apple events were holidays, today could be considered the Christmas Day of Apple Events. That’s because Apple is just hours away from announcing its new iPhone 12 series of phones—as well as, perhaps, some other surprises . Read Full Story

Apple’s virtual WWDC wasn’t just okay—it could be the future of keynotes

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Today’s event was a compelling proof of concept for an approach that Apple should consider using for some of its announcements in the future. Over the past five years, I’ve heard more than one person wonder aloud if the pomp and circumstance of Apple’s live events are always worth all the trouble. I can remember some Apple presentations that were truly memorable and live attendance was a must. But Apple is in a different place in its history, and more announcements are incremental improvements to existing products instead of brand new world-changing product lines like the iPhone. That may change in the future. Maybe when Apple finally announces its augmented reality glasses , for example, it will be crucial to hold a live event—if possible. Read Full Story

The best parts of Apple’s ‘Hi, Speed’ launch didn’t involve speed

5G is still overhyped. But the new iPhones are easier to hold and harder to break, and the HomePod Mini hits an impulse-purchase price. And that’s good. When Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg took the stage during Apple’s virtual “Hi, Speed” launch event on Tuesday , he declared that the introduction of the first 5G iPhone was a “historic moment.” People, he said, have “been waiting for 5G to get real. With the network coverage they expect, the incredible performance they have been promised, and the devices they love. Well, today, with iPhone, the wait is over. 5G just got real.” Read Full Story

Yep, Apple will help you find lost stuff besides its gear and your friends

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The new ‘Find My network accessory’ program will let any company piggyback on Apple’s network for tracking missing items. In April of 2019, scuttlebutt emerged that Apple was working on a Bluetooth Low Energy gizmo you’d be able to attach to items you owned to help you find them if they went missing. Apparently to be known as an AirTag, this device sounded a lot like existing trackers such as Tile, Chipolo, or TrackR—and remains vaporware. Signs of its existence , however, have continued dribbling out. And last year, the company did merge its Find My iPhone and Find My Friends app into Find My , a new unified tracking service that sure felt like it could be prep work for a future in which you’d use your Apple hardware to track down other things you’ve lost.

Apple iOS 14 release time: Here’s how, when, and where to download it

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Most of the world will get access to iOS 14, iPadOS 14, tvOS 14, and watchOS 7 today, though some countries won’t get it until tomorrow. Yesterday’s Apple Event had few surprises. It was widely reported that Apple would not be introducing new iPhones and instead be focusing on the Apple Watch Series 6 , the new iPad Air 4, and its Apple One services bundle. However, one thing that did catch people off guard was Apple announcing iOS 14 would be released to the public today, September 16—just 24 hours after the event. Read Full Story
