Can the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2 change Apple's fortunes?

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] What's good? Brian Tong here and welcome to the Apple Byte for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple. But maybe this week it's a lot of bad [UNKNOWN] After Apple's earnings really, they just weren't that good. In fact, they were just ugly. After they posted their first year over year decline since 2003. Now how long ago was that? That's when Apple finally released iTunes for the iPod on Windows. The first piece of Apple software ever on Windows in Steve Jobs joke that hell finally froze over. Now, everything for the big A was down, they posted a $50.6 billion quarterly revenue, with a profit of $10.5 billion. A year ago, those numbers were at 58 and 13.6 billion. Now, iPhone sales were down 10 million units from a year ago, Mac sales were down half a million units. And Ipad sales were down over 2.3 million units for a year ago. Now our predictions show told you 2016 would be a down year there where plenty of you that get all upset when I criticize Apple for their missteps and lack of innovation but maybe you'll realize we speak the truth here. Now no new products are taking off there's a lack of innovation and flatning or declining sales in there collective categories all Bad apples. [NOISE] So did Apple do to shake things up at this point? Not that much if these iPhone 7 pro schematics from Japanese magazine macfan are real. The images believed to be Apple's rumored Flagship iPhone 7 Pro, with a 5.5 inch screen that shows no sign of a headphone jack anywhere. The schematics show the iPhone 7 Pro will have the same thickness as the iPhone 6s Plus at 7.3 millimeters, and the same dimensions. There's a spot for the rumored dual lens camera and a smartphone connector on the bottom rear side, which we know can be used for data transfer or charging. So there are still potentially three different iPhones coming this year, an iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus. And an iPhone 7 Pro. This helps but there's nothing radically different here. And if you're waiting for the potential all glass body iPhone in 2017 or 18? That's a long ways away. So what about the Apple Watch? Maybe that can change their fortune. Well the Wall Street Journal reports that Apple is working on including cellular connectivity and a faster processor in the Apple Watch 2. Independence from the phone is nice if you want it, and if you're okay with buying a separate data plan for it. But that's not compelling enough for me to immediately go and buy the next-gen one for keeps. I want wi-fi, I want Facetime video that makes it the only **** Tracy watch on the market, and I want apps that are useful. Until then, I'm still passing. Okay, how about the Apple Car project. That has been rumored to be targeting 2020. That's an eternity in the tech world, and we'll probably have flying cars by then. Kidding, but, you know, hoping. Apple continues to hire automotive industry execs, and reports claim that Apple is prototyping car parts at its product realization lab. The facility has been known for prototyping new macs, ios devices and other Apple products. Now the big A is still having trouble finding a manufacturing partner to work with after a handled blot reports Daimler and BMW have both walked away from talks. to help build the Apple car. The report says Cox dissolved after being unable to determine who would lead the project and who would own the car data. Apple obviously wants the iCar to be built into it's iCloud platform. Now, Apple is looking at Canadian Austrian firm, Magna International and surprise Apple, making a car from scratch Isn't all that easy. Bloomberg reports the FBI has decided to keep the iPhone hack they used a secret from Apple. The FBI paid $1.3 million for the method but they claimed they never purchased the rights to the technical details of the hack and therefore don't have the necessary information. A review process known as The Vulnerability Equity Process. Allows flaws to be submitted and than it's determined if the security flaws should be disclosed to the company. In this case, Apple. In order to fix them, but none of that will happen. And finally. Are you rich enough for lunch with Tim Cook. For the fourth year in a row Apple is participating in an auction through Charity Buzz for the chance to have an hour long lunch At Apple headquarters with Timmy. Just like Apple's earnings, the auction has brought in less money each year, bringing in $610,000 in 2013, 330K in 2014, 200K last year, and right now it's sitting at 210,000. And, you know what, in about ten years or so, I'm guessing Tim Cook would pay to have lunch with me. All right that's gonna do it for this week's show. You can email me at theapplebyte@cnet.com or Tweet me @briantong or send your trolling comments questioning my sexuality on YouTube. Thanks so much for watching. Well catch you all next time for another bite of the apple. [MUSIC]
