  • A lot of people have been tweeting and emailing me asking why would Apple release two phones about a month apart one being an upgrade to the current iPhone 7 and the other a new design. Everyone I have spoken to says this, not typical Apple style. I have no internal information but let me give you my take on this decision. The iPhone 8 which is basically the iPhone 7 with an updated ram and processor and still rocks the home button is scheduled to start shipping September 22 this coming Friday. The iPhone 10 (X) is scheduled to start pre-orders on October 27th, with shipping to begin on November 3rd. There are reasons why Apple has chosen to make this decision to have 2 different phones releasing. I believe and it’s not all because of shipping and manufacturing delay and difficulty. Apple wants to release the iPhone 8 first to see what the response is to the phone. They want to see if they have those huge order numbers they are used to but at this point, we have heard that ordering is off to a slow start. Many people believe that the iPhone 10 will be another huge hit for Apple and it very well could be a huge hit for Apple. But Apple made a very smart business decision not knowing how people would react to the removal of the famous home button so they released an upgraded version of their current already a huge success iPhone design. Not only is the iPhone 10 taking a huge step by removing the home button but adding the Face ID is another huge change for Apple.

  • The new Apple Watch is mostly an iterative update over its predecessor, but for one major feature: LTE. The addition of cellular connectivity has been touted as everything from “nice” to “game changing,” but reviewers appear to have early issues in testing. I didn’t run into any in my own testing, but the Verge reported some big hiccups connecting to the cellular network on the device. An Apple spokeswoman confirmed the problem with TechCrunch, stating, “We have discovered that when Apple Watch Series 3 joins unauthenticated Wi-Fi networks without connectivity, it may at times prevent the watch from using cellular. We are investigating a fix for a future software release.” TechCrunch This is Apple first watch with cellphone capability they were bound to have some kind of glitch. We all remember the iPhone antenna issue.
  • During its iPhone 8 and iPhone X event – not on stage, but on its website – Apple has at last revealed the macOS High Sierra release date: September 25. Apple’s latest version of macOS will be available for everyone to download through the Mac App Store in just two weeks, like so many versions of the operating system (OS) before it. This, of course, is not the first time anyone has had access to the OS. High Sierra has been available to everyone that was interested through a public beta test that has seen several revisions since its reveal during WWDC 2017 and subsequent seeding. TechRadar I actually look forward to the desktop MacOS more then iOS release I am a computer guy at heart I can’t help it.
