We're back after an extended Labor Day weekend here in the U.S., and with only a week away from Apple's next media event, there's plenty to get excited about. Unfortunately, things are looking grim for the rumored iWatch, which appears to be stuck in not-quite-final testing, but Elgato's got a batch of new HomeKit-friendly accessories on the way to tide us over once iOS 8 hits the streets.

Judging from a "hot off the presses" report straight from Apple's supply chain, prospective iPhone 6 buyers might want to line up even earlier this year, as the smartphone is rumored to suffer a production setback. Meanwhile, the company's iWork apps received minor updates Thursday, and venerable financial software Quicken makes a triumphant return to the Mac in today's Morning Report.
Closer ever closer we creep to a potential release date for the newest iPhone. Will it look like these mockups? Probably, as despite Tim Cook's promises, leaks are endemic up and down the supply chain. And have we seen what the newest iPad Air will look like too? Yeah, probably that too. Nevertheless, there are still some Cupertino surprises we haven't anticipated, but let's take a look at some that might not be surprising anymore, as well as some other news percolating out there in the wide, wide world.
Rumors and predictions, rumors and predictions, that's most of what we got going on this week with the news to start off August. What will happen with your iPhone if you drop it? And what new ways will we find to use our iOS devices? Let's take a look inside and find out what's what.
Remember not so long ago when the rumor mill claimed Apple wouldn't be unleashing a phablet-sized, 5.5-inch iPhone 6 this year due to supply chain problems? Turns out assumption may have been the correct one after all.
Apparently, the iPhone 6 rumor mill has run dry: No sooner does another report on Apple's fabled iWatch surface Thursday night, than two others pop up offering even more details on how Cupertino might dominate the wrist.
Everything we had heard about a bigger, 5.5-inch model of the rumored iPhone 6 pointed to a release in early 2015, months after the smaller 4.7-inch version is expected to launch. But the extra wait may now be avoided, thanks to Apple finding a solution to a pesky battery problem.
As is the case almost every year since the iPhone blasted onto the scene back in 2007, pieces and parts are slowly leaking out for this year's presumed iPhone 6, which may have finally revealed its backside this week.
As WWDC 2014 quickly approaches, the rumor mill has turned to an iMac refresh and other idle speculation in recent days, mostly jumping off the so-called "iWatch" bandwagon — a brief reprieve that ends right about now.
Apple chose to pass on the opportunity to incorporate Touch ID fingerprint sensors into the latest iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display models, but a new rumor suggests that oversight may get rectified later this year.
