Apple maybe, accidentally, leaked photos of new products?

Oops. Apple has apparently accidentally leaked images of the new 2018 iPhones that will be announced during its just announced September 12 special media event. These images were then shared by 9to5Mac, giving perhaps the first official look at Apple’s upcoming iPhones and Apple Watch series 4 models.

 

The images seem to confirm the existence of two OLED iPhone models, both of which feature an edge-to-edge display with slim bezels and no Home button, available in gold as well as silver and space grey.

 

Allegedly, both the 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones will be called the “iPhone XS.”

 

The new Apple Watch models, also leaked,  feature smaller bezels for more visible screen space, which allows for new complications arranged in a round configuration, on a new watch face.

 

There’s a new hole below the Digital Crown, which might be another microphone, and the Digital Crown has a red outline rather than a full red dot.

 

Apple will unveil the Apple Watch Series 4 models alongside new 2018 iPhones on September 12, at a 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time event that’s set to be held at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus.

 

You can watch it live on Apple’s website or through Apple TV. In the mean time, hop on over to 9to5 to check out their pics.

 

Apple welcomes Media to it’s September 12th Special Event

Apple has sent out invites for its annual special media event. The event will be held on Wednesday, September 12 at 10:00 a.m. at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park Campus in Cupertino, California.

 

The tagline is “Gather Round.”

 

 

 

What can we expect?

 

Apple is said to be introducing three new iPhone models this year: a second-gen 5.8-inch OLED device, a larger-screened 6.5-inch OLED device, and a lower-cost 6.1-inch smartphone with an LCD display.

 

Rumor has it they will all feature A12 processors, faster LTE, edge-to-edge displays, and Face ID integration. We can likely expect the phones to be tiered between $700 and $1000.

 

We can also expect to see the new Apple Watch Series 4, with a larger display likely implemented through a reduction in bezel size. Longer battery life and improved health monitoring capabilities have also been features circling the rumor mill.

 

We may see new iPad Pro models and new Macs in the near future, but probably not at this particular event.

 

New AirPods with “Hey Siri” support and the AirPower charging mat, may also be seen on the 12th.

 

You can watch the keynote on the Apple website and on Apple TV.

 

So wait – is there one more thing? We’ll just have to watch to find out!

 

 

Apple Special Media Event Part 3 – Apple Watch

watchres

 

 

A lot of what we heard today about the Apple watch was just a reiteration of what we’ve heard since the product was announced last year, a practice in upping the anticipation for it’s imminent release. How it’s the most personal Apple product ever, the tech that will become integral in your day to day life, from improving your health to being a full on iPhone impersonator sitting pretty on your wrist.

 

You will be able to use it for phone calls, look at your photos, use Siri, get and reply to notifications, emails, social media, track your health data, play music, make calendar appointments, use Apple Pay, get an Uber, unlock your hotel room at SPG hotels, open your garage door, etc. All very exciting things. That we already kind of knew. Nice to get a reminder, though, right?

 

So what new information did we get?

 

We learnt that Christy Turlington Burns is basically superwoman, and that’s why she was chosen to test out the Apple Watch in a half marathon in Africa, and a full marathon coming up in London. She loved the Apple Watch ( uh, d’uh) and she spoke about the Charity she founded,  ‘Every Mother Counts’,  which aims to improve maternal Health and prevent childbirth and pregnancy related fatalities around the world.

 

You should definitely check it out.

Back to the watch! It will have… drum roll please… 18 hours battery life! Yay! Pretty good, Apple, pretty good.

 

The Apple Watch will come in three collections. Apple Watch sport,  the Stainless Steel Apple Watch and the Apple Watch Edition.

 

collections

 

 

 

Apple Watch Sport is crafted from Aluminum and will cost you $349 clams for the 38mm model, and $399 clams for the 42mm model.

 

The Stainless Steel Apple Watch will start at $549 and top out at $1099, depending on the band and buckle combination you choose.

 

The Apple Watch Edition is crafted out of 18 Karat solid yellow or rose gold and will start at $10,000 and top out at $17,000. Yowza. This model is also limited. Because that’s how you know you’re fancy, if not very many other people have the same fancy thing.

 

Bands will retail for between $49 and $449, with additional magnetic chargers costing $29 for a 1-meter cable and $39 for a 2-meter cable. A new bands and accessories page on the Apple Online Store lists all of the available add-ons for Apple Watch.

 

Pre-order starts on April 10th, and you can also go into an Apple Store from that day to try it out. The Watch will be officially released on April 24th, in United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan and United Kingdom. Apple Watch will be available for purchase by reservation at Apple Stores, online and at select authorized resellers in China and Japan. 

 

 


And that’s a wrap! What an exciting morning. We’re ready for a nap.

 

 

 

 

Apple Watch updates!

It’s Friday! Happy Weekend guys!!

 

So, we get that you don’t usually look forward to Mondays on a Friday afternoon, but guess what makes this coming Monday different?

 

That’s right, an Apple Special Media Event, that’s what. Time to SPRING FORWARD!

 

Obviously it’s not that exciting. We’d be really excited if they were, like, giving away free Apple Watches at the event. Or even releasing them to be sold for, let’s face it, quite a bit of monies.

 

BUT

 

They will be talking a bit more about it. So that’s pretty cool, right? .. right? RIGHT! Well, cool enough. The Apple Watch product release is building in anticipation, and this is one of the ways that Apple amp that anticipation up a notch, those clever guys. And you know what else they do? Release information as rumors right beforehand!

 

So here’s what we’re looking at rumor-wise: The Apple Watch will take about 2 hours to charge, which will give you all day battery life, with about 5 hours of heavy use in that day.

 

The Apple Watch will only deliver notifications whilst the watch is sitting pretty on your wrist, and will stop with the notifications when it’s not on your skin or below 10% battery.
Pressing and holding the Digital Crown will summon Siri, which (who?) is apparently working really well on the watch.

 

If your battery is low but you still really need to know the time, the watch will have a Power Reserve Mode, which can be accessed at any time and will shut down all functionality except for the watch. The time-telling Watch. The clock bit. You know what we mean.

 

Apparently the Apple Watch will have 8GB of storage available, with other larger options available, such as in the iPhone/iPad.

 

 

The keynote begins on Monday at 10 AM P.S.T. and will be live-streamed on the Apple Website and on a designated Apple TV channel. We will be keep you up to date on  all the Apple Watch details and everything else that is revealed on Monday!

 

 

 

Have a rad weekend.

 

 

 

Apple will live stream upcoming Media Event!

meda

Apple’s next big special media event is coming up fast – 10am on Thursday the 16th October is not too far away! On that note, we have some good news for you! A special secret source that spoke to the good guys over at Macrumors has confirmed that Apple will indeed be live streaming the event on both Apple Tv and the Apple website.

 

We’re expecting to see updated iPads (both Air and mini), possibly a new 12 inch iPad, a final look at OS X Yosemite before it’s public launch, and the possibility of new Mac Mini’s or something completely unexpected but awesome! ( C’mon, it’s possible…)

 

We’ll be watching the live stream and keeping you updated! Hopefully we won’t have to brush up on our Mandarin for this one…

 

Apple Media Event confirmed!

As predicted Apple will be holding a special media event at 10am this coming Thursday October 16th. Invitations have been send out with the above tagline – “It’s been way too long”.

 

The event will be held at the Town Hall Auditorium at the Apple campus in Cupertino and is expected to be a much quieter event than September’s iPhone 6 and Apple Watch media event.

 

There are many guesses as to what the tagline could be referencing – from Mac Mini’s, to an update or announcement regarding Apple TV, to a new product category, however most agree that as it is a smaller media event, it will mainly focus on updates to existing products.

 

The predictions mainly lie with new iPads ( Air & Mini) as well as updated iMacs with (fingers crossed) Retina Display. OS X Yosemite will also be officially introduced, and more than likely released to the public that day.

 

We’ll let you know whatsup as soon as we know!
