What the hell? It’s a glorified Bluetooth remote woven into a jacket, and you can only wash it about ten times before it may start to fail. Why even make this?

Makes sense, since a standard replacement case costs $69. I would also imagine this new case will come standard with AirPods shortly thereafter.

Looks like Apple learned their lesson from last year. There were plenty of iPhone Upgrade Program folks (yourself included) upset with the first-time upgrade process. I hope this pre-approval extends to the iPhone X as well.

Only available in the US, but this is a great strategy by Spotify and Hulu. Maybe Apple Music should partner up with Netflix.

Kinda clever to get people to search about these on the web, but it’s a bit of a roundabout way to promote the comedy specials (which are excellent).

I see a lot of features similar to iOS 11, which is dropping soon. I find it kind of funny that Google has specifically branded their malware-scanning system as “Google Play Protect” — something Apple would never have to do.

I would welcome this. It’s in line with my overall Face ID post, too. Sounds like Apple is finding some cool uses for the purported 3D-sensing, front-facing cameras. If accurate, the cameras will always be watching when the screen is on. Good thing Apple has an excellent privacy record.
Ouch. Everyone is prone to delays (Apple Watch, AirPods), but this isn’t very reassuring for a budding company’s initial offering.

Mark Gurman, Scott Moritz, and Ian King reporting. This is the next logical progression for Apple Watch, as I wrote about in my wishlist. Battery life must be at least as good as the Series 2 or Apple wouldn’t be doing this. Also glad to hear Intel will source the modems. Sorry, Qualcomm. John Gruber also chimed in, saying he’s heard of an all-new form factor coming for this year’s new watches. Interesting! I doubt it will be a round watch face, though.

Dwayne Johnson clarified in a subsequent tweet that it’s a commercial, not a movie. Aside from the obvious “wtf?”, I wonder what they’re advertising. Obvious answer is Siri, but I’d wager they want to show off her new iOS 11 voice. Guess we’ll see tomorrow.
