Tech Industry
[MUSIC] What's happening? Brian Tong here and welcome to the Apple Byte for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple. It's official and Apple has sent out their invitations for their next big keynote on Wednesday, September the 7th in San Fransisco at 10 AM Pacific time But lets look deeper and completely overanalyze this invite because I have nothing else better to do. Now first of all, did you eagle eyes notice the invite is shaped in a pattern that is the top of the apple logo? I did. Second, we know rumors point to a dual lens camera with DSLR type capabilities, and the invite features a background with a bowcafe effect found with DSLRs. It produces a blur in out of focus parts of an image with a shallow depth of field that's produced by the lens. And for all of you know-it-alls that like to comment. I've heard people say bokeh or bokay. It's like jif or gif or the ATAT, at at debate #firstworldproblems. This is also rare dark themed invite from Apple that's black instead of bright and cheery pointing to Low-light capabilities and see you, a camera sees you. Uh-huh, yeah, see, I told you I have nothing better to do. Now, the idea of DSLR light features is great, but, if it ends up only limited to the larger 5.5-inch phone, I'm passing on it. All right, new tidbits on the iPhone 7. A rumor leaks spec sheet from Weibo could be totally real or totally fake, but it matches rumors that show the inclusion of lightning equipped wired EarPods and a lightning to 3.5mm adapter that will be included in the box. Apple has also been granted product certification by the Eurasian Economic Union for new iPhones, new Apple Watches, and a reference to Airpods, the same name from a US trademark filing in October. Which still makes me sad that they skipped on air buds. [SOUND]. And we've also compared the rumored AirPods to the Bragi Dash wireless earbuds. But there's a chance Apple might have acquired or is at least working on a partnership with Bragi. That's because Bragi has teased on its Twitter one of the biggest announcements in the company's history will take place on Monday, September 5 in Cupertino. The city that's home to Apple. Now either this is big or they're just doing a hell of a marketing tease. We'll find out. Also, there's been a lot of chatter about it, deep blue iPhone or darker space gray color option for the next iPhone 7. But according to this latest photo from MacoTakaro of alleged SIM tray slot. They believed the iPhone 7 will have five colors including gold, silver, space gray one of your favorites in mind, rose gold, and A new glossy black option that is similar to the finish of the 2013 Mac Pro, or takes me back to the days of the iPhone 3G. Now, I personally love a glossy black to match my glossy black chaps. Okay. That's a bad apple and I swear I don't own a pair. [SOUND] All right looking for the latest Bloomberg report from Mark Gurman says Apple is indeed working on a refresh Mac lineup and is planning to release some of those new Macs as soon as October. Updates include the rumored thinner MacBook pro with the oled touchbar above the keyboard that can change depending on the app you're using. [UNKNOWN] Apple is internally calling this the Dynamic Function Row, but the report says that name may change. Also a new MacBook Air will bring multifunctional USB-C ports, and iMacs will have an option for a new advanced graphics chip from AMD. And for all of you who have been asking about a new Apple display, the report claims that Apple and LG are collaborating to bring a new standalone monitor to connect to its computers, with a high-resolution 5K screen. Yes, a 5K Apple Display is on it's way. And with all of these mac announcements and the likely release of MacOS Sierra in October. What does that mean for the iPad? I've always thought that we'd see an iPad update this year. But according to Bloomburg Apple may roll out new updates to the iPad line next year. The update includes software improvements to the Apple pencil potentially allowing users to mark and annotate objects across multiple apps. New iPad hardware will include even faster display technology for smoother zooming. Panning and scrolling but the report reiterates we shouldn't expect an iPad lineup update until next year when a rumored new iPad pro with a 10.5 inch screen size will also debut with the family. Which means I get a Save my money until they release a true tone 12.9 inch iPad Pro after they gave it to the 9.7 inch one only four months later. And then a follow up about our story with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Touch to this. A class action lawsuit has been filed by iPhone owners in three different states against Apple over the alleged defect where iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus touchscreen become unresponsive and fail. It's a real thing for users but Apple still won't acknowledge it and turn away many of other worried customers. And still they do, you know what comes before you? That's a bad apple. [LAUGH] Let's just hope. This doesn't end up effecting something like the iPhone 6s because no one wants an iPhone 6s touch disease or an iPhone 6 std. [NOISE] Thank you, I will be here all show.
