The next Apple TV is set to be revealed at Apple's next big media event on September 9, if you believe the rumors, and the latest batch claims that it'll feature some spiffy motion-sensing technology that could make it a big hit with casual gamers. Meanwhile, Apple and other companies are joining up with the Pentagon to create "flexible hybrid electronics," and it looks like we're stuck with 16GB baseline iPhones for another year.
Apple has at last announced the date for its next big media event and, well, it's on the date we'd all been saying it was going to be for weeks now. In addition, Apple is said to be planning to bring some spiffy animated wallpapers to the "iPhone 6s" and "iPhone 6s Plus."
At last, Apple has started selling third-party Apple Watch accessories in its stores, although the selection is currently severely limited. In other news, we finally get to see the movie poster for the Steve Jobs biopic that's been in the news for months, and Apple CEO Tim Cook received an, ahem, agreeable amount of Apple shares for his recent performance as CEO.
In yet more proof that Apple probably needs to work a little harder on that whole "doubling down on secrecy" thing, someone has allegedly put together a more-or-less working iPhone 6s using the many parts that have supposedly leaked over the last few months. In other news, one of the actors from the upcoming Steve Jobs movie reveals details about the film's unique rehearsal process.
Apple CEO Tim Cook saved Apple Stock (and, some say, the whole U.S. stock market) today with a well-timed e-mail after this morning's stock market tumble, although it's possible he'll get in trouble with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as a result. In other news, you may soon be able to get a seven-day charge out of your iPhone, but now the question is whether Apple will actually pick up the somewhat unconvential technology involved.
If the iPhone 6c is real, it'll reportedly be a much more attractive unit than its predecessor from 2013, at least according to new rumors. Elsewhere, Apple is offering free repairs for iPhone 6 Plus units with faulty cameras, and Samsung is trying to win over iPhone users with a pretty extreme deal.
The Apple TV, long on the rise, is now merely the fourth most popular streaming media device in the U.S. Elsewhere, Apple put up a magnificent display to promote the Apple Watch at Selfridges in London, Samsung has decided to take its patent case with Apple all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and one of the greatest RPGs of all time is now available for iOS.
Judging from the new batch of reports that rolled in throughout the day, the 12.9-inch "iPad Pro" is, in fact, real and it's apparently already being tested out in the wild. Alas, it looks as though we may not see it for a few months. In other news, one of Apple's most famous products gets demoted from the Apple Store's display tables.
Photos circulating on social media that purport to show a pink iPhone 6s might very well be fake, but that doesn't mean we won't be getting a pink iPhone. In other news, a new survey claims that half of initial Apple Music listeners aren't using the service anymore, but Apple disputes that claim.
Maybe it's merely German efficiency or maybe it's insider knowledge, but two of Germany's three largest carriers reportedly believe they already know the launch date of the next iPhones. In other news, refreshed versions of two popular Apple peripheral devices appear to be on the way, and Best Buy is reportedly getting ready to start selling AppleCare and AppleCare+ in its stores.
