It's been four years since Apple has significantly updated the MacBook Pro, and change is on the horizon. While media reports have pointed to some interesting features in the pipeline, there has been some debate over when Apple will choose to reveal the new model line. The Michael Report now states with certainty that Apple will launch the MacBook Pro and iPhone 7 at the same event.
The buzz surrounding tomorrow's Apple media event has reached a fever pitch. The company is expected to launch a highly anticipated update to the 4-inch iPhone, dubbed the iPhone SE. Besides the deluge of rumors surrounding the event, more leaks seem to have confirmed major changes in the iPhone 7 camera design, speakers and ports. Read on for more on this news and other highlights from the week in Apple.
Save the date. Apple has probably scheduled a media event for Wednesday, September 9th to reveal the iPhone 6s. But that's not all, according to John Paczkowski at BuzzFeed. The iPhone updates are just the tip of the iceberg, with new iPads and a long-awaited Apple TV refresh also in the works. The only remaining question is whether or not Apple will deliver the rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino has seen two historic Apple events, and now a third is scheduled for September 9th at 10am Pacific Time. The original Mac was launched at this venue in 1984, and the iMac was revealed in 1998. Speculation is rampant that Apple has something big up their sleeve for 2014.
Invitations have been delivered to selected members of the media, confirming the date, time and venue but not much else. With a tag line stating "We wish we could say more," the fact that Apple is not using its preferred spot at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco this time around speaks volumes. While many agree a wearable device such as the iWatch is on its way, analysts are all over the map when it comes to predicting a timeline for release.
After two years of misleading iPhone 5 reports the rumor mill finally got something right! Apple has just sent out invites to the highly anticipated next generation iPhone event, which will take place on next Wednesday, September 12, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts at 10:00 am. iMore and iLounge accurately predicted the September 12th date back in July. Now it's time to see if other predictions such as an iPad mini announcement, or an entire iOS refresh turn out to be true.
The most interesting thing about the invite pictured above is the shadow being cast by the number 12. Many people believed the next generation iPhone would not be called the iPhone 5 because it’s a sixth-generation device. It was assumed that Apple would drop the numerical suffix and call it the "new iPhone", just like they did with the third-generation iPad. However, the number 5 shadow pictured on the invite seems to suggest Apple will be sticking with the fan branded name "iPhone 5".
