Apple’s iPad, iMac, and AirPod launches weren’t just a surprise, they were a smart strategy shift

I expected “one more thing” yesterday, and I was bummed when I didn’t get it. Sure, I was disappointed, but my anticipation for another hardware refresh only proved that Apple’s experiment with dribbling out modest product releases is working. On each of the first three days of this work week, Apple dropped updated versions of existing products with little of its typical fanfare or event theatrics. It began with the iPad mini and iPad Air on Monday and then progressed to the iMac on Tuesday and the AirPods on Wednesday. Nobody would call these earthshaking updates.…

A brand-new AirPower image has appeared on Apple’s Australian site

A new image of Apple’s long-delayed AirPower wireless charger has appeared on the AirPods page of the company’s Australian website.

There’s no sign of the Apple Watch, which was the third device Apple initially claimed the mat would be able to charge. The AirPower is an ambitious wireless charging mat that Apple announced alongside the iPhone X and iPhone 8 back in 2017. At the time, the company claimed the mat would…

First, an iPad refresh. Now Apple updates iMacs with faster processors and graphics

Laptops long ago overtook the desktop as the go-to computer of choice for most consumers and business people. Lately, even Apple seemed to be overlooking its all-in-one iMac desktop line. On Tuesday, Apple provided its first consequential update to the iMac since June 2017, resulting in the kind of robust improvements that, in theory anyway, will mean something for power users, and, perhaps even diehard gamers. The new machines keep Apple’s previous screen sizes of 21.5 inches and 27 inches, starting at $1,299 and $1,799, respectively. Apple starts taking pre-orders today. Apple…

Apple’s well-known secrecy causing strife with Hollywood producers

A report out of The New York Times has highlighted once more the culture clash that has happened as a tech company delves into Hollywood. The video production business, unlike the development of Apple’s latest iPhone, is a bit more open. Actors get snatched up, directors come aboard the next big film, and writers get overall deals tied to studios. As a result, video production is a far more public affair as the talent comes off the market. Content gets announced months, or years before it ever hits a screen, as trailers and…

Qualcomm seeks $31 million in damages from Apple in California patent suit

That figure based on estimates of iPhones sold between July 2017 and last fall, and a fee of $1.40 per infringing device, according to Patrick Kennedy, an economist and managing director at Torrey Partners, reports CNET. Qualcomm is suing over Apple’s use of Intel modems, which are allegedly violating multiple power-related patents. Kennedy was cross-examined by an Apple lawyer who argued he was exaggerating the value of patented technology. It’s not clear if Apple’s team raised the issue of the patents’ validity or cast doubt on infringement. Damages of $31 million is paltry next…
