As it often does in the springtime, Apple is hosting a splashy event today, where everyone expects to see some new products. The most intriguing rumored new member of the family will be a 4-inch iPhone SE for people with tiny hands as well as a smaller iPad Pro for pretty much anyone with hands.
Another iPhone day is upon us, but this year, there’s a twist. While we can undoubtedly expect to see a new phone, we also expect a look at a very meaningful upgrade to the aging Apple TV. The latest iPhone will put more power in your pocket. The new Siri-ready Apple TV might just transform entire home.
If Google's web crawlers are correct, there will be a new Retina display 13-inch MacBook Pro announced today. The Apple Store is currently down, so we can't follow the link, but a Google search for "13-inch macbook pro" returns results at the official Apple site referring to the new model.
Tim Cook and his mariachis are presenting the new ultra-thin, ultra-light, magical iPad Mini or iPad Air* today at 1pm Eastern /10am Pacific at the California Theater in San Jose. They will probably announce other products too. We'll be commenting it live.
Although you can't clearly see Scott Forstall's deranged face on this drawing, everything in this graphic showing the mechanics of Apple's next iPhone event—starring Tim Cook as master of ceremonies—is true.
If you head to Apple's US homepage, you'll be greeted with this very special splash page: the company's got an iTunes-related announcement tomorrow morning at 10EST time. But what could it be? Updated:
You don't have to breathe up against the windows of Apple's San Francisco event, because they've just announced a livestream online, starting at 10am PST / 1pm EST. Remember to keep your eyes on Giz too. Details below:
Apple's music event was so full of shiny gadgets and awesome news that your head might still be spinning. In case you struggled to keep up with everything or want a review, here are all the highlights:
As expected, iTunes 10 has added to the TV show purchase model and is introducing rentals. It'll cost you a buck for an HD episode, and $5 to watch first-run movies in HD. Crucially, those movies will be available on the same day as their DVD counterparts. You'll have 30 days after you rented to watch, and 48 hours…
Apple has revealed its new, streaming-only Apple TV. And it's just 1/4 the size of the old one. The tiny successor will pack built-in power supply, HDMI, ethernet, and 802.11n wireless, priced down to $99. (UPDATED: Now with hands on)
iTunes 10 is all about Ping, Apple's new music social network. Like Twitter, you can follow and be followed. You can be public about it or be private (jerk). Captain Jobs is hoping artists will be public.
The new iPod lineup has been announced—fresh and awesome new nanos, touches and shuffles—but nary a word about the iPod classic.
The new iPod Nano hardly bigger than an oversized stamp. It does away with the click wheel (and the video camera) in favor of a multitouch screen. But how do you use it?
Apple's given the shuffle back its buttons, despite the smallest form factor yet. Even more impressive: it's got 15 hours of battery life, 2GB storage, and a price tag of $50. And I have to admit, it's kind of adorable.
iPad with iOS 4.2 is almost everything we've wanted in the iPad since getting an iPhone 4, plus something we've wanted from the beginning: streaming music and video from iTunes to iOS devices with AirPlay. It's coming out in November.
