Apple has several more tricks up its sleeve and they apparently have nothing to do with the long-fabled “iTV” that one always-wrong analyst keeps telling us is just around the corner. Per Re/code, Apple CEO Tim Cook told Charlie Rose on Friday that “there are products we’re working on that no one knows about, yes — that haven’t been rumored about yet.”
If it hasn’t been made clear from the sheer volume of articles we’ve posted on the topic in the last 24 hours, a lot of people tried to order the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last night. So many, in fact, that some sites and networks began to cave under the pressure of the hundreds of thousands of anxious Apple fans hoping to get in line before the first batch sold out.
Apple fans aren’t the only ones who have had an exciting week for news — cord cutters now have reason to cheer as well. Quartz reports that Jeff Bewkes, the CEO of HBO parent company Time Warner, told an investment conference this week that his company is “seriously considering” whether it wants to start offering HBO Go as a standalone subscription option that people can subscribe to without having cable TV. While Bewkes didn’t full commit to fulfilling cord cutters’ dreams, he did go much farther than he ever has toward saying HBO Go might be a standalone option sometime in the future.
Samsung may have an unexpected Galaxy Note 4 launch problem on its hands, as authorities in certain markets may look at the recently announced smartphone as a medical device, thanks to the multiple built-in sensors that allow users to measure certain health-related parameters. ZDNet Korea says the Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety revealed that Samsung requested the Galaxy Note 4 not to be treated as a medical device, in order to avoid health regulations that could cause launch delays.
Announced during the iPhone 6 event, Apple Pay represents Apple’s new take on contactless mobile payments, but the exclusive iPhone and Apple Watch feature will only be available to users starting in October (iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) and in early 2015 (Apple Watch and supported iPhones that can be connected to the wearable device). And there’s another huge catch: the service will roll out to U.S. customers only at first, as Apple has yet to detail international expansion plans.
Starting with iOS 8, users will finally be allowed to install custom keyboard apps and replace the default iOS 8 keyboard Apple is offering. Amid the plethora of Android keyboard apps that are anxious to make the jump to iOS, including some very popular apps ready to launch in the App Store, you’ll find PopKey, an app that will help your friends flood your messages with GIF files.
Ca-ching, ca-ching, ca-ching! That’s the sound that’s ringing through Apple executives’ heads when they think about the millions of consumers who will soon be using their iPhone 6′s to pay things using the new Apple Pay platform. MacRumors points us to a new report in The Financial Times that explains how Apple will keep a 0.15% cut of every purchase you make with Apple Pay.
If you’re a fan of Apple’s products, it’s hard not to get caught up in the inevitable hype leading up to a keynote address. Despite all the leaks, all the blog posts and all the endless analysis, a new iPhone still somehow seems fresh and new when Apple finally pulls back the curtain, but not everyone was impressed with the company’s latest reveals.
