The iPhone 10th anniversary edition could cost $1,000

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. Believe it or not, the tenth anniversary iPhone will likely cost more than $1,000 after a new report from Fast Company. And that might sound crazy at first, but you know what? I believe it. The current iPhone 7 Plus with 256 gigs of storage already costs $969 before tax. And we're not talking about the new rumor of iPhone 7s. That will be released in the current 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes. This is the rumored 5.8-inch phone with an OLED screen in a metal frame that we're talking about. Now you have to love the part where Fast Company says, Some people believe Apple will call it the (far cooler-sounding) iPhone X. Hm-mm now I wonder what weekly app will show on CNET said that they should call it the iPhone X first. Yeah, this one. But it's not like we were serious we're just making things up. And that's how rumours get started. Now the report says it will look like a smooth, black monolist that matches up with Johnny [INAUDIBLE] dream of making the iPhone look like a single sheet of glass. The report says Apple is working hard to remove the physical hold button from the front, and have it rest under the glass. And there's a chance the physical buttons on the side of the phone may go away replaced by touch sensitive ones on the metal frame. Now Fast Company also says Apple has been working with Lumentum to bring 3D sensing technology to the new phone. That can be used for face-sensing to unlock the phone, or to be part of an augmented reality application, but it was not specific. This sounds all nice and dandy, but I wanna know from Apple byte nation, if this is true, Are you all willing to get the premium edition iPhone if it costs over $1,000? Yes, tweet me at Brian Tong or email us at theapplebyte@cnet.com and we'll feature your responses in next [MUSIC] We show. Okay references to the next gen Macbook pros have been discovered in the Mac OS 10 point, 12 point or beta released to developers. Apple blog, pipes universem found a trio of motherboard identifiers that don't match up with any current Macbook pro model, and they never existed in previous versions of Mac OS era. The blog then cross-referenced the motherboard identifiers with Kaby Lake processors that will most likely be used in the new models. Now see this list, there's a lot to take in here. And some of you weren't too happy that I told you To wait for the 2017 MacBook Pros, but I still stand by my word. Think about this, [BLANK_AUDIO], better battery life, 32G RAM support, and better touch bar support is coming this fall, dongles optional. And plenty of you have been waiting for the Beats X headphones to drop and according to Apple They will be available on February the 10th. We've been waiting for them for awhile and they were actually first designed with the help of Apple engineers that includes the amazing W1 shift, a physical remote control and magnetic ear buds with sounds that really has more umph than Apple's air pods for a cheaper 149 price point. I think the long delay really was because They didn't want it to compete directly with the AirPods. Now look the tech is the same but it has more functionality at a lower price point and arguably a better design. C-Net reports gray and blue colors will also be coming soon after they go on sale in black and white. So Will keep your eyes on that. Now the Apple TV is still buried in that group of others in Apple's reports that include the Apple Watch, but maybe that will soon change. Bloomburg reports Apple has hired Timothy Twerdahl, the General Manager and Director of Amazon's Fire TV, Can now be the vice president in charge of Apple TV product marketing. Now the previous Apple TV lead pit this ad will focus on security media content deals. We know, the Apple TV has seen minor software improvements and like many things recently. It's been a nice upgrade if you're an Apple loyalist but It's really been nothing great. Even at their recent earnings report, the Apple TV was blamed for Apples other category decline. Now that Apple trails in the exclusive content game, come on, it's time to up their game and make an Apple TV that's a gotta have box beyond just people and the Apple ecosystem. All right, in some quick bytes, NFC World Reports ApplePay is nw the most common mobile payment platform accepted By 36% of merchants. It was only at 16% a year ago but see it's made some huge strides. Now PayPal is second at 34% and MasterCard PayPass is at 25%. Also MacBook Pro TouchSmart integration Is coming soon to Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel for the Mac. If you can't wait, you can jump on board with the Office Insider beta program that just released in updates including the Touch Bar integration. And in a follow up from last week, a fix is coming to the LG's UltraFine 27 inch 5K display that was flickering and freezing when it's close to a wireless router. LG told Recode they will fix the problem by inserting additional shielding into newly manufactured models and existing ones would be retro-fitted with the same enhanced shielding. So you know what? Good apple, for taking care of that. Hooray! All right, that's gonna do it for this week's show, You can email us at theapplybyte@cnet.com or tweet me at BRIANTONG and let us know, are you down With a $1,000-plus iPhone. Thanks so much for watching, and we'll catch you all next time for another byte of the Apple.
