[SOUND] [MUSIC] Nick! Geeze dude, you're like a ghost! How's the show going? Oh it's going good, I'm you know. I'm getting started. You realize I'm going out of town,right? No, I just thought it was like normal. Yeah, well, you know what? I've got things to see and people to do. So get it done. Yeah, I'll get it done. Okay, man. Yeah. I'll get it done. Get it done. Sure, sure, I'm doing it right now. No problem, boss. [MUSIC] Done. [MUSIC] What a [BLEEP]. [NOISE] [MUSIC] What's happening? Brian Tong here and welcome to theapplebyte for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple. Now there's always tons of action before Apple's rumored, but Not officially confirmed September 9th keynote and some of that action is around iOS 9.1 and I know. Some of you just said out loud, hey, iOS 9 isn't even out right now. Hey, iOS 9 isn't even out right now. I know, Andy. Right? Well, websites like MacRumors have seen traffic from devices running 9.1 as far back as July Even though it's tailed off. But analytics company Appsee recently found evidence of an iPad with a resolution of 2732 by 2048, in its logs running iOS 9.1. Now a new report by KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the 12.9 inch iPad Pro with a Force Touch-enabled stylus Will enter production sometime in September, or October. Now Apple still needs to officially release iOS 9 before anything else. So if you guys all put the pieces of this puzzle together, the new iPad Pro is likely to ship with iOS 9.1, which means we probably won't see a launch alongside the iPhone, and we could still have one more iPad specific event. So we're thinking, just iPhones and Apple TV on September 9 now, unless that changes next week, which it could. [SOUND] All right in iPhone 6s news, a triple leak of info points to September 18 as the official release date for the next iPhone. The leaks come from different sources or phone carriers, from Japan, Germany and the U.K. But these are all Tier 1 Apple launch countries. And it pretty much confirms we'll see the same release date here in the United States. Best Buy is also expected to start carrying AppleCare in stores for products including the phone on the 14th, just a few days before the expected launch. Now, we also showed you the unboxed therapy video last week and I told you they would bend it in another week and that's exactly what Lou did. He compares an iPhone 6 rear shell to the 6S shell he acquired. He then had the metals analyzed, and found the 6S case had a significantly higher presence of zinc, pointing to 7000 series aluminum. But the proof comes down. Onto his bend test, and Lou found out that the iPhone6 case started bending under 30 pounds of pressure, while the 6s rear shell started bending at 80 pounds of pressure. Dude, that's how much I can curl with one arm. It's like [NOISE] You mean 30 pounds, right Brian? Not 80, but 30. Yes, Mitch, 30. Well, either way, the new iPhone casing looks like a huge improvement. All right, new apple accessories have been leaked out thanks to the FCC. To filings that hit their website show the big A will be releasing new versions of it's bluetooth magic mouse And wireless keyboard. Now in a shocker, the new mouse will be called the Magic Mouse 2. There were no indications for a name change for the keyboard. We aren't able to distinguish any real major design changes, but the biggest difference is that both the mouse and keyboard will support bluetooth 4.2 low energy. 4.2 is faster, more secure, and more power efficient. These two guys could be the very first 4.2 product Apple releases if they come out before the phones and iPads. [NOISE] And I've told you all it's a good idea to wait for Skylake. And at Intel's IDF 2015 conference in San Fransisco They showcased Skylake's ability to drive three 4K monitors at 60 hertz. That's three I said! Previous chips could only do a single monitor. And you know what? That's power. PC World reports Intel engineers said the new chip's set to launch around two weeks so cross your fingers that we'll see some new Skylake Mac announcements before the year is over. [SOUND] And finally the Apple Watch made some enemies with Major League Baseball. After Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost was banned from wearing his Apple Watch during games. Now ironically it was the same watch the MLB gave him for being the American League's manager for the All-Star game. Now Yost told the MLB when you're away from your phone all it is is a watch. It's just a clock. Which is why they need to make the next one a whole lot better. Now after all this fuss the MLB will now reportedly allow coaches and team personnel to wear Apple watches in the dugout during games, because they also agreed with many tech observers. Without a phone it really is just. a glorified clock. whew. [NOISE] Sometimes the truth hurts. All right, that's going to do it for this week's show. You can always email me at email@example.com or tweet me @briantong and I'll answer when I'm not hover boarding. Thanks so much for watching, we'll catch you all next time for another byte of the apple. [MUSIC] [SOUND] [MUSIC] Hi. [MUSIC] Ow! [SOUND] Oh. Have a nice trip, Brian. [SOUND] [MUSIC] [SOUND] Oh!
