Apple generates a lot of news, and it can be tough to keep up. If your mind was on other things this week, a roundup of Apple-related headlines will move we adult to date.

If you’d like to get unchanging roundups of violation Apple news, pointer adult to a newsletters.

Can’t innovate any some-more my Glass

Hot-streak pundit Jon Prosser forsaken a video this week leaking flattering most all a sum about Apple’s arriving AR glasses. Price, pattern details, features: there’s an extraordinary volume of information here.

Prosser had formerly publicly disagreed with Ming-Chi Kuo about a product’s recover schedule, though a minute trickle video suggests they are closer than initial appeared: Prosser is adding that Apple will make a pre-release proclamation a year before Apple Glass goes on sale.

If all this wasn’t enough, Prosser afterwards followed adult a few days after with a startling explain that Apple is also operative on a chronicle of Apple Glass that will have turn frames as a reverence to Steve Jobs.

As we’ve pronounced elsewhere, that’s verging dangerously tighten to a realms of Steve Jobs cosplay, and we’re struggling to see Tim Cook giving this a go-ahead. Has Prosser got his wires crossed? Has he been fed misinformation to flush out his sources? Or is he trolling us?

MacBook Pro: The review

This one’s prohibited off a press. Minutes before a finish of a operative day yesterday Macworld published a MacBook Pro 13in (2020) review. We tested out a 2.0GHz indication with 16GB of RAM, entrance in during £1,799/$1,799.

A high cost to compensate though a good investment was a verdict, as a opening between a starting configurations becomes wider than ever.

iOS refurbish drops – and it’s a large one

We’ve been watchful on this one for a while, though Apple understandably wanted to get a beta contrast right. And iOS 13.5 is here (along with iPadOS 13.5).

Why is this one so significant? It supports coronavirus tracking apps. There are updates to FaceTime and Face ID too. Here’s how to refurbish iOS on your iPhone and maybe play a partial in rebellious COVID-19.

On a somewhat reduction charitable note, a makers of Unc0ver contend a subsequent chronicle of a apparatus will be means to jailbreak iOS 13.5.

Hard times during Cupertino

This only in: Apple is now merely a fourth-biggest US association in terms of revenue, after Fortune published a updated list. But hearten up, Tim Apple: your association still done $55.3bn distinction in 2019, some-more than any other US association solely Berkshire Hathaway.

In other Apple-is-doomed news, it’s removing sued by Ubisoft, on a basement that a diversion on a App Store (and on Google Play – Google’s in difficulty too) is a ‘copy’ of Ubi’s Rainbow Six: Siege.

Over during a Guardian, news from a Apple whistleblower who criticised a company’s collection of information by a Siri ‘grading’ programme. Thomas le Bonniec is not happy with swell given his disclosures final summer: he says a association “keeps ignoring and violating elemental rights and continues their large collection of data”. If you’re endangered too, review a beam explaining How to stop Siri listening to you.

(Note also that le Bonniec categorically mentions that “undoubtedly not only Apple” is during error here. As with a Ubisoft box above, it’s always Apple’s name that ends adult in a headline.)

And for those who fear that Apple is incompetent to contest with Netflix and Amazon in a video-streaming space, we wrote some thoughts on how to urge Apple TV+, and what a association is already doing.

Bugs and problems

Those who paid tip dollar for a 2020 MacBook Air have been removing prohibited underneath a collar about overheating problems. The fans are creation too most noise, some owners news – a accurate diction is “annoyingly loud” – while others trust a processors are being downclocked.

Security researchers, meanwhile, have detected 10 unpatched flaws in Apple’s MagicPairing Bluetooth tech. They contend a bugs could means AirPods, iPhones and Macs to dump connectors or even crash.

The gossip mill

Jon Prosser, who we mentioned progressing since of his Apple Glass pronouncements, has been bustling this week. He’s also presaging that Apple will recover an iPhone with no ports during all – nonetheless not until 2021.

No ports and no headphones either, if Ming-Chi Kuo is scold about this autumn’s recover plans. He believes Apple is deliberation a devise to recover a iPhone 12 with no EarPods in a box, no AirPods… not even a dongle so we can use your possess 3.5mm earphones. No word from Apple, obviously, though this would be severely argumentative if a headphone pier conditions was anything to go by.

If you’re into iPhone rumours, we might be gratified to know that we’ve already posted a iPhone SE 3 gossip roundup. Too early, we say? It’s never too early. People are eating this up.

Our colleagues on Tech Advisor, meanwhile, have been seeking What new AirPods models will launch this year? The rarely successful AirPods code looks to be holding over all of Apple’s headphones, with a Beats code gradually removing subsumed: a approaching over-ears will be called AirPods Studio, for instance.

And that’s it for this week. Stay Appley!
