Apple TV deals make major progress for a fall releaseFinally, we get a new iPod Touch and iPod refresh. Apple TV looks to be on track for a fall release. Plus, we put Apple's claim that 99 percent of iPhone users "love" their iPhones to the test.
What's good? Brian Tong here back from Comi Con and I'll be taking you on an exciting adventure inside the world of Apple. Now the big story this week, the iPod touch gets a refresh. Yes You've been asking for it since its last update in 2012, and it finally happened. The new iPod touch gets some major upgrades with Apple's 64-bit AA processor, the M8 Motion co-processor for activity, their 8 Megapixel camera. And an Apple purse on any device., Bluetooth 4.1. Now these are all legit improvements three years later. Now the iPod Touch starts at $199 for the 16 gig model and goes up to $399 for the 128 gig model, but it's biggest change, and be prepared for this, we say goodbye to the iPod Touch wrist strap. [MUSIC] Tear. [MUSIC] [SOUND] No, I'm not really sad about that. But the iPod Nano and Shuffle get no spec upgrades but all the iPods will be available in the new dark blue, hot pink and gold colors that we talked about a couple weeks ago. Now the big thing that I'm still waiting for is the new Apple TV. But the New YOrk Post reports Real progress is being made with the major networks for Apple streaming TV service. We talked about the difficulties facing Apple to secure rights for live feeds of local channels, and it might have been one of the reasons they chose not to show it off at WWDC. Well, according to the report, Apple asked the networks to secure the local affiliate rights' for them, which they have done. The affiliates will now, in turn, get a cut of the streaming profits and [UNKNOWN], Are now moving forward. See how that happens money's involved. Reports still say Apple hasn't decided on its pricing for the TV streaming plan, ranging anywhere to $10 to $40, depending on the bundle. But this is really the best news of the show to me so far. And also a rumor report from The Economic Daily News claims that Apple will produce an Ipad Mini 4 and the larger 12.9 inch Ipad Pro, but will not announce a new Ipad Air of the standard size model. They claim the goal is to spotlight the Ipad Pro and relieve pressure on Foxconn from producing three different Ipads at roughly the same time. Now, this report also says, Apple will ditch the Mini 7.9 inch form factor after this years refresh which doesn't seem to be believable but we will wait and see. And let's talk about the recent Apple Watch sales report from Slice Intelligence. The good news, Apple has sold over 3 million units three months after they started their pre-orders. Now that easily destroys the 720000 in all of 2014, but then the bad news is they also report of the new Apple Watch have dropped by 90% since the opening week of sales. Yikes, now let's think about it. From launch day or the first month or so how many more people do you know bought an Apple Watch after that? Really for me, it's not. Now I know I've met plenty of you who love your Apple watches, others who think it's so so, which brings me back to what I've said all along. People are still trying to figure out how wearables can really benefit them. And not even Apple has been able to give us a true, compelling reason. Well, just yet. All right now a lot of times companies like Apple, make claims that are sometimes Too good to be true. For example, check out this TV ad that they're running. This is an iPhone, and it comes with something different. [MUSIC] 99% of people who have an iPhone, love their iPhone. Wow, 99% of users love their iPhones.
