New iPhone X screen leaks and Apple gets a Memoji makeover
Iphone screen leaks and the full lineup of products we're expecting from Apple before the end of the year.
Let's get down to the core of Apple news and rumors.
September is Shaping up to be a busy month for Apple if you believe the hype.
And it's not just iPhones we're talking about.
Long time Apple analyst Mingchi [INAUDIBLE] detailed at least five other Apple products slated to make their big debut before the end of the year.
iPads, Apple watches, MacBooks, AirPods and the AirPower [INAUDIBLE].
And some of these coincide with the new products has already registered with the Eurasian Economic Commission, as highlight by French site CONSOMAC.
So let's break it all down.
We definitely now we're getting new iPhones.
A 5.8 and 6.5 inch OLED models, and a 6.1 inch model with an LCD screen, all of which we can now see in this leak from Ben Greskin.
Which shows the thicker bezels on the LCD screen, screens made by LG this time and not Samsung, according a recent DigiTimes report.
And Apple is apparently betting on that cheaper model.
The report also says Apple has ordered 20 million LCD screens compared to the 3 to 4 million OLED screens.
We don't know the official names of these phones yet, but they have been registered as A19, A20, and A21.
Next, there is iPads, a new 12.9 and 11 inch iPad Pro resembling the iPhone 10.
So FaceID instead of home button and those barely there bezels.
9to5Mac published these These mock ups so we can start to get a feel of what these will look like, minus the notch, which I don't think we're going to avoid on these products either.
Now, Apple watches, the Series 4 will apparently come in two sizes A 1.57 inch display and a 1.78 inch display.
This means the smaller ones of these would actually be bigger than the current large model of the Series 3 following this trend of slimmer vessels of course as shown in this 95 Mark Markup.
We're gonna get a sequel with hands free Siri and that wireless charging case, that will take full advantage of the AirPower mat, that's been MIA since last September, which we will apparently see, finally, in this next launch.
Just note that the AirPods and the Apple Watch did not make it in the register, at least not the one published in CONSOMAC.
So take that as you will.
And lastly, MacBooks, two of which Apple has just announced, but it has registered more.
Quill also says it's still planning an iMac update, a Mac Mini update along with a budget notebook to replace the Air.
So, there's still hope for that.
The question here is timing.
There are so many products that Apple may choose to divide them up between two launch events.
One in September and the other one in October or November Or maybe just launch them on the DL like they did with the Pros.
Last week, Apple announced a refresh to its Macbook Pro lineup which our own Dan Ackerman has already tested out.
New intel chips, new RAM and storage options, a true tone display, a new T2 processor for security and encryption.
And the hands [UNKNOWN] but on the outside you would barely be able to tell that he's talking about new Macbook Pro's because they look exactly the same.
And what about that faulty butterfly keyboard that Apple has been in the hot seat for?
Looks pretty much the same although according to Apple it's Third Gen keyboard is designed for quieter typing.
So they did not address the main issue.
Or did they?
During a traditional tear down site iFixit discovered a thin layer of silicone under their controversal butterfly keyboards.
That would get stuck with just the tiniest speck of dust.
According the site, this thin layer does in fact protect the keys from this problem and it could be Apple's way of admiting the fact there was in fact a problem in the first place.
The company has offered to replace some of these faulty keyboards but not has acknowledged a design flaw.
I Fix It also found that they have a larger battery and speakers.
And a trackpad that is easier to repair.
But if what you are looking for is more productivity on the iPad this next bit of news may be for you.
Rumor has it Photoshop will soon be coming to the iPad.
According to a Bloomberg report, Adobe has long had companion apps with some functionality on iPhone and iPad, but not like the Microsoft Surface tablet, which is able to run the full version.
The software developer is planning to unveil this new Photoshop app at its annual MAX Creative Conference in October.
Maybe alongside new iPad Pros, with the app slated to hit the market in 2019 according to the site.
And this week was National Emoji Day.
And to celebrate, Apple teased out just a few of the newest members of the clan that we can expect to come to the iPhone and iPad later this year.
In a victorious win for gingers, Apple's new lineup includes a redheaded option.
No seriously, this is a big deal.
There was even a change.org petition for it.
Other hair options include white hair, curly hair, and no hair.
A cold and party smiley face, lobsters, kangaroos, and ma- My all time favorite fruit which is finally worthy of its emoji, mango.
According to Apple there will be 70 new emojis coming to its devices in one of its iOS updates.
Not clear which one or when.
But Apple's love of emojis did not stop there.
The company slopped out all the headshots of its top executives with their memoji version.
Some, like Johnny [UNKNOWN], were pretty spot on, as you can see.
While others, let's just say they were more flattering versions of themselves.
[SOUND] That's it for today's show, but you can always catch up on more Apple news and rumors on cnet.com, or just catch me next week with more Apple Core.
