[MUSIC] Hey whats up guys? Whats up? Hello. Hey Will, are you sleeping? No. no just resting my eyes. Okay so I just wanna see what does this new show intro look like I'm stoked about this, its hot, its hot right? Yeah. We've been working on it for a couple weeks and yeah. Okay let's see what you guys got. Yeah I like what you did there. I mean, it looks good but, rose gold's like the hotness. Even your shirt. Your shirt's really cool dude. It is. Yeah it is. So you guys think we can just add some rose gold in there? yeah, Rose gold everybody? Yeah, rose gold. Rose gold. Rose gold. Alright No. [MUSIC] What's happening? Brian Tong here. And welcome to the all new Apple Byte for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple. It's a brand new look. With a brand new feel that's so fresh and so clean. What that intro? Rose gold. All right let's get to the show and it's official Apple WWDC key note will take place on Monday June the 13th at 10 a.m. Pacific Time, after official invites were sent to the press this week. That's just under two weeks away and you know we expect something special this year like [MUSIC] New MacBook Pro rumors, which are on fire, and this time it's cult of Mac with leaked photos of what's claimed to be the next MacBook Pro that features a space for the rumored OLED touchbar above the keyboard. The photos also suggest that almost all the connectors will be replaced by USBC ports with two on each side and a hole that appears to be a headphone jack. See, Apple's not getting rid of the headphone jack. On everything. Now the pictures don't indicate how much slimmer is if any the new Macbook Pro body is but reports have pointed to a release in the fourth quarter of this year. Now WWDC 2016 needs something to get our attention beyond software updates and hopefully we'll hear more about the new machine. Now in text that we hope to see an Apple's hardware Samsung recently announced a 512 gig non volatile memory express solid state drive that combines all the components into something smaller than the size of a US postage stamp this design for next gen PCs and ultra slim notebooks and capacities start at 128, 256 and 512 gigs Apple has used Samsung solid state drives in the past so they could bring this to Macbooks and more in the future. But nothing has been confirmed with the drives being so new. Also Intel has announced it's next gen Kaby Lake processors that are on track to release by late 2016. Advancements over skylight to performance, battery life and media capabilities come to the seventh generation intel core processor. The belief was that [INAUDIBLE] would be dropped into the next line of Macbook Pro's, but now based on rumors and timing, [INAUDIBLE] could go directly into the fresh line up. If not, you can't imagine users being happy about getting a processor that's already out of date, a month or two later for flagship Apple machine. Give us [UNKNOWN] Apple. Also what else can we see at WWDC, how about a refreshed Apple Thunderbolt 5K display with a GPU inside? Now reports say inventory has been unavailable or limited in multiple stores around the world and the timing would be right. Current Apple machines and even the rumored MacBook Pro are unable to run a 5K signal Over a single stream cable which could potentially mean a built in graphics card in the new display will be able to work with almost any Mac because it would be driven by it's own internal graphics card. So we will see what WWDC brings. Now I'm also a huge fan of the Amazon Echo smart assistant, and Google is now going for their own with the Google Home. But what about Apple? A CNET report says Apple has explored putting a camera And the rumored Amazon echo like rival device that would be self aware and detect who is in the room by using facial recognition technology. The device would be able to instantly pull up a person's preferences such as music and lighting that they like. Well, you know I like good likes, dim And dark with some of that R and B. [MUSIC] Now the reports says hardwares could be released by year's end but it's more likely to be available in 2017. Apple could still change its plans to include a camera or even scrap the device entirely but you don't want to be the third player in a market That's what it feels like right now. And finally iPhone news, you know we couldn't go a whole show without hearing something about that iPhone. A new report from Japanese outlet Nikkei says Apple will be moving to a three year major iPhone cycle, claiming that the device will also bring a new vibration motor capable of producing more complex patterns than earlier iPhones. Now it could be an evolved version of it's current taptic engine that produces different types of vibrations and feedback. I'm not sure what other complex vibrations could really do to enhance the use of my iPhone but then again, don't knock it if you haven't tried it. I know last week we talked about the potential of the new iPhone only bringing 16 gigs to start off. But a claim by an IHS technology analyst The supply chain research indicates the iPhone 7 will start with 32 gigs for the 199 base model. Okay, I will wait and see. But if you want the latest iPhone 7 leak, here's another from microblogging site Weubo, with a redesigned antenna line. A space for the new single lens for the 4.7 inch model and that rose gold color. Because you know. Rose gold. It's what everything should be now. All right, that's gonna do it for this week's show. You can email us at theapplebyte@cnet.com, or tweet me @bryantong. Tell us what you think of this brand new Apple Byte and, you know what? I will read some of your Responses both good, and bad, because I can take like a big boy. Thanks so much for watching we'll catch you all next time for another byte of the apple. [MUSIC] [INAUDIBLE] Are you seeing this? What is this? Hey where's the rose gold man? What the hell. [MUSIC] [UNKNOWN] my ****. [LAUGH]. Ho ho ho. That's good. Yeah. [MUSIC].
