An iPhone 7 without a headphone jack looks more real, Apple Watch 2 rumors and the iOS 9.3 beta is legit.
[MUSIC] What's good apple biter? It's Brian Tong here back from CES. Now I got to talk to Shaq and Kenny And Charles. [?] got a great team but this a bad haircut in San Francisco. and even try out VR porn which for the record was rated pg13. So let's get to the latest in apple still doesn't have it's streaming tv service set up for the apple tv but it's showing interest in buying Time Warner's assets after their CEO-- Told investors he would entertain a sale of the media company according to the New York Post. Now Time Warner isn't even up for sale yet, but maybe Apple can work their magic with the over $200 billion of cash they're sitting on. Time Time Warner's assets include networks like HBO, TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network, CNN, and more. And that in itself, along with its Disney ABC ties could help lay down a foundation for the service. But up to this point, talks with Apple and the networks have been put on hold with no TV service in sight. Apple also released a new batch of beta software updates across the board recently. Normally, these updates aren't that big of a deal. But, iOS 9.3 brings new major features like NightShift that uses your iDevice's clock and geolocation to shift the colors on your display to the warmer end of the spectrum. It gets rid of that bright blue lighting exposure that can make it harder to sleep. You all know what I'm talking about, when you're staying up late at night, playing on your iPad doing, God knows what. You can keep your notes locked down with a password or a finger print now. The news app has become more personalized to your taste, if you even use it. And the health app now displays activity for your health metrics. Plus Apple apps like weather and settings and more You get 3D Touch capability for better shortcuts. Now they're only previewing it for iOS 9.3 and education, but multiple users are finally coming to iOS after being three or four years too late. Now we have to imagine this is coming to regular users as well. It really should be a no-brainer. Now the TV OS 9.2 beta gets features that should've come out when it launched. The biggest one The Podcast app has finally returned. It's technically in beta and doesnt have surrey functionality, but get this, the current app will not play any video podcasts at the moment. Are you Are you kidding me? That's still a bad apple. Bluetooth keyboard support is finally here. The app switcher looks more like what we've seen in IOS 9 and you can now group apps into folders in the home screen, similar to what you can do on IOS. Also, watch OS 2.2 beta now allows a single iPhone to pair to multiple watches, and that has to be great for that iPhone's battery life. But do not fear you could always slap on their amazingly horrible looking battery case on it. Now I cannot give that thing enough bad apples and trust me it looks even worst in person. Alright a new report from the commercial times in Taiwan claims an early trial production run of the Apple watch two is expected to start as soon as the end of January. It will be manufactured by Quanta who is also responsible for the original Apple watch. Rumors for the new watch include a thinner body, a FaceTime camera and a wi-fi chip for more independence from the iPhone, but still no GPS. Now look, I've actually gone back to my regular watch until the Apple watch just does more. Also reports that Apple will be getting rid of the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. On the next iPhone aren't going away and it looks more and more like it will happen. 9To5Mac reports Apple is prototyping a new set of bluetooth headphones with a chance of launching them along the new iPhone 7. The earphones are said to be completely wireless And similar in concept to the Motorola Hint or Bragi Dash headphones. Apple's rumored wireless ear buds are expected to include a noise canceling microphone system that will also enable phone calls and Siri without their current inline mic and remote system. Will be concerned a premium alternative and will include a carrying case that double as a rechargeable battery for the headphones. In fact, Apple already registered the trademark for air pods three months ago which is what the new ear buds might be called, crushing my dream of ever having Apple air buds, that might look something like this. See I was Really hoping they make it happen. All right now, I was in Las Vegas for CNET's annual trek to CES but I didn't come away empty handed from there. So here's one of the gadgets that was worth checking out at the show especially for MacBook users. [MUSIC] May not be the biggest product here at CES but this is really one of the hottest. This Breaksafe's magnetic USB power cable. Try saying that five times fast. Now what makes it special, right, if you have something like one of the new Macbooks that's only USB 3. You have a Chromebook pixel, you want magsafe experience. This cable gives that to you. You plug one end into the USB and then if you have any pressure, you might trip over your cable, it pops right off and reconnects with magnets and prongs. This is going to be available sometime in April for the price of 39.99 and when you think of all the USB-C compatible products that we're expecting to see moving forward this is going to be a big thing and it's here at CES 2016. All right that's going to do it for this week's show you can email us. At firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @briantong with your final Nostratongus questions for next week's show. Thanks for watching, we'll catch you all next time for another bite of the Apple. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
