AppleTv

now runs on iOS and macOS

In other words, the 2018 Mac Mini is the most overpriced AppleTV you can buy.

I don't netflix, so I don't know the nuances of streaming TV as a viewer. that being said I think Apple might have a steep hill to climb to compete with netflix/hulu/etc (although they have most of the groundwork and movie library there with iTunes anyway).

Also not sure how would apple decide on adult-oriented content? (e.g. Black Mirror; Love, Death and Robots)

 

Speaking of netflix: they've confirmed they won't be joining ATV's ecosystem directly/natively:

Quote

Macrumors:

At a briefing at the company's headquarters in Hollywood, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said that while Apple is a "great company," Netflix isn't interested in offering its content on other platforms. "We want to have people watch our shows on our services," he said, according to Recode.

(...)

"You do your best job when you have great competitors," he said, before admitting that the increased competition has led to higher prices when sourcing content. 

 

iPad refresh, not really interested. iPad Mini refresh, maybe a bit (or at least I'd start looking at refurb, if Apple doesn't decide to 100% Recycled Aluminium them ,_,)

EDIT: huh. gen-1 Apple pencil support o_o that's nice

 

iPod Touch refresh... do people still buy these for kids as "My First iOS device"?

 

Aiiiiiiiiiiiiiirpowerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr-- kay

 

Makes sense for the Airpods to be updated with wireless charging. especially when they're making this THE FLAGSHIP WIRE-LESS EXPERIENCE.

still wish for phones in general to have TWO USB/interface ports. one for charging and other FOR THE INEVITABLE 3.5MM ADAPTER (or maybe an OTG adapter to host a USB DAC at this point o_o)

 

Quote

 

 

 

 


 

The events after this will be the ones to look for, because:

Quote
  • triplecam iPhone X(S) successor
    • rumored to drop Force Touch completely (even the hardware). if they do this, I might stop my choices at the iPhone XS for quite some time ._.
  • MODULAR. MAC. PRO.
    • all eyes here, PC hardware enthusiasts

I honestly wonder where Apple'll go for an iPod touch update or refresh. It's well overdue for a refresh, anyway.

Yeah I want to know if they will keep the old shape and design or try and make it look more like the iPhone x direction and get rid of the bezels.

the all-screen iPod touch (the icon at the very least) got shot down as fake, so I'm not exactly high on that hope ._.

I truly feel that Apple should keep its current design, MAYBE size it up to iPhone 6/7/8 levels? But I'd argue that keeping it small wouldn't hurt it at all.

Also you can use the latest version of Chrome and Firefox and it'll work fine, but not guaranteed. Fine for me rn
