The iPhone 6S reviews are in and an Apple Car in 2019?

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] What's up, everybody? Brian Tong here. And welcome to The Apple Byte, the S Edition, for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple. Now the iPhone 6S reviews are in, and the consensus is real positive with 3D touch and the camera. Being the two standout features that everyone is talking about. Now, I'll get my hands on it just like you this weekend but the reviews confirm what I believed from the start. 3D touch is going to change how you use your phone. Once you have it you won't want a phone without it and it's just scratching the surface. I know, sure sounds like I'm drinking the Kool-Aid but like the saying goes. Don't knock it until you've tried it. Oh yeah. And the same goes for boba. Now we know the iPhone is expected this Friday for those of you that preordered it, but if you live in certain parts of Philadelphia and New York City, that won't be the case. The big A has started sending emails to customers who might be affected by the shutdown of deliveries and pickups on Thursday and Friday. Due to Pope Francis' visit to the United States. Come on, Pope! You have to come visit on iPhone Friday? Now, on behalf of my Apple biters in Philly and the NYC, I'm sorry but you're getting a bad apple. [NOISE] And if I somehow get struck by lightning or I'm somehow no longer hosting the show next week, we'll know why. But maybe you're a lucky duck like visual designer Adrienne Alpern from San Diego, California. Some how, some way, her rose gold iPhone slipped through and she received it five days before launch. So she's showing it off, taking pictures with it and her dog. And just taunting us with more pictures. I mean, what did you But she still needs to learn to shoot video in landscape mode. I know, let's be honest. I'm just jealous. Now Apple is taking steps to remove malicious code added to some commonly used apps like WeChat. After the first large-scale attack on Apple's app store, a counterfeit version of Apples Xcode, that's normally used for building apps is being called Xcode ghost. And was downloaded by several developers to build their apps, which were then released into the app store. Now a lot of times, devs will go to outside sites to download Xcode because Apple servers are hammered when they release new versions. That's how XcodeGhost ended up being downloaded and used. WeChat has been updated and fixed, like many others, but Apple claims there is no evidence that suggests that XcodeGhost has been used for anything malicious. Such as transmitting personal identification info. But right now, Security Firm [UNKNOWN] says about 4,000 apps have been compromised, and it's up to Apple to remove them and notify users. Sounds like fun. [SOUND] All right, Apple has also released a new iOS 9 software update. 9.0.1 is now available and adds a few bug fixes but many of you have pointed out how the iPad's podcast app from Apple still does not have an option to play video podcasts full screen. Aw. Look. Here. Where's the button to go full screen? Nowhere! Really Apple? That's an easy. Bad Apple. [NOISE] Alright, a new teardown by iFixIt gets us inside the guts of the new Apple TV. No big surprises here. But it can be fun to look at some of these pics featuring its dual-core A8 processor in red on the top of the logic board. And why not tear the Siri remote apart as well? Cool. Now Apple's also released the second TV OS beta for developers, and a couple new details have come out of it. Developer Steve Troughton-Smith says the old Apple remote will still work with the new Apple TV, meaning, the new Apple TV still has an I/O receiver which is good for home theater junkies with universal remotes. Also, the new Apple TV and its Siri remote can sense when you pick it up and will automatically turn on the Apple TV if it was in sleep mode so you don't have to press the button to start up all the time anymore. And maybe you're not impressed with all the Apple goodies coming out this year and you're already looking to the future. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple has designated it's Apple Car as the committed project with a target shipping date of 2019. The fruit company has been investigating an Apple branded car over the past year. It been making plenty of hires within the automobile industry, and even recently met with California's DMV to talk about self-driving cars, according to the Guardian. Now, internally, it's called Project Titan and the group has been given the green light to triple the 600 person team and it will be interesting to see how this all come together down the road. [NOISE] Promise I'll stop. All right, and in some gadgets coming soon, that I have to show you. Have you ever wanted to text someone, while you were holding an umbrella, but it's just not that easy. Well, check this out from Korean Company KT Design, it's called the Phone-brella, and it's amazing. Rest it on your wrist and have access to both hands or typing while staying dry. No details of when this will go on sale but I am getting one and we're also living in the age of selfies the iPhone success is getting a beefed up selfie cam but will it allow us to take better selfies with our dogs the answer is no but this will it's a kick starter called the Pooch Selfie. It's a phone mount that holds a tennis ball, which is pretty much like crack for a dog, and look how good the results are. See, now you can really take advantage of the iPhone Success' new selfie cam. All right, that's going to do it for this So email at theapplebyte@cnet.com or tweet me @briantong for hair tips. Thanks so much for watching and we'll catch you next time for another byte of the apple. [MUSIC]
