Apple Event Predictions For Sept. 7th

Apple announced a keynote for September 7th today. It is quite obvious that it will be in regards to then new iPhone and maybe a few other products. I put together a list of all my event predictions.

  • The plus model will have duel camera system.
  • The new iPhone will come in a blue model.
  • No headphone jack. (time to accept this one people and welcome or new Bluetooth overlords)
  • Apple Watch 2 will be announced but will ship later this year.
  • The new iPhone will start at a 32 GB model. (Finally)
  • No physical home button. (there will be a dedicated force touch area for these interactions where the home button was)
  • I will not be called the iPhone 7. My guess is iPhone 6 SE and iPhone 6 SE Plus.
  • And finally I hate to say this one because it needs to happen soon, but no new Macs.

Apple Software Update Day 5/16/16

Today Apple released OS updates for all of their platforms, though it is all minor updates it is always a good idea to stay up to date. Released today was OS X 10.11.5, iOS 9.3.2, watchOS 2.2.1, and Apple TV. The one notable change is now night shift works while in low power mode. Other then that there is nothing crazy in these updates mostly security updates and bug fixes. With new major OS release on the horizon there is nothing shocking in this.

Also Apple released a new version of iTunes that is suppose to help with the non reproducible iTunes bug that deletes users music. I still think this is user error and not an iTunes bug though.

Happy Updating!

Review: Woven Nylon Band For The Apple Watch

I have been on the look out for a more comfortable band recently. The Sport band is nice but it doesn't breath very well. I'm not somebody that has worn a lot of watches in my life so I don't have a particular style I care for.
