Wednesday’s Apple Event was jam packed with updates across many of their products and spanned just over two hours. Weeding through the lot of verbal masturbation, obligatory superlatives, and the several guest speakers who were all “thrilled to be here” were expected.
If you couldn’t avoid succumbing to the voluminous early reports of predictions leading up to yesterday’s event, then you wouldn’t have been surprised by the announcements either. That’s an unfortunate reality, too, as all of it would have been much more magical without any of the leaks being realized earlier. It was a large event, in a large space, and took much longer to go through but people knew what was [...]
Lets take a deep breath from the all consuming Apple rumor mill for a moment. The constant siren that is the collective voices of every single tech blog on earth collectively shouting for your clicks has been in full swing like always. “Sources say”ing their way into making grandiose predictions day after day so they can show off their most recent Draft Kings adverts has gotten past obscene.
Instead of making money from making predictions, I want to share a wish list. I’m more interested in making requests than hoping someone’s insights are right ahead of the event that I’m going to watch anyway.Apple TV

Using your iOS device on a big TV screen is awesome, but latency can be an issue. Most of us don’t have an ideal setup to minimize Airplay latency, so you may wonder: how bad is this lag?
This simple little trick for calculating Apple TV Mirroring latency is based on a similar method for Chromecast, courtesy of Android Police.

Just a week after iOS 8 was released, Apple today pushed an update to kill a bunch of bugs found in the first version of its latest mobile operating system.
Only one problem: it’s breaking everyone’s phones. Twitter is buzzing with reports that Touch ID and cell service no longer work after applying the 8.0.1 update.
Do NOT update to iOS 8.0.1 just yet. Many, including myself, are experiencing no cell service, and broken Touch ID. Well done, Apple.

A new report by 9to5Mac claims that Apple is testing a 1704×960 resolution display for its next-generation iPhone. The new resolution for the iPhone 6 would allow the device to maintain the same aspect ratio as the iPhone 5s (16:9). In terms of screen size, both 4.7- and 5.5-inch displays have been reported, but the 4.7-inch model is more likely for the iPhone 6 that we’ll see this fall.
The increased screen size is not likely to change the positioning of basic interface elements in iOS, according to the report, but will instead make everything larger and sharper. However, independent developers may be able to take advantage of the additional screen real [...]
For a heavy smartphone user, it’s almost impossible to see battery life last all day without stopping for a charge. But you don’t actually have to be tethered to a wall outlet anymore. That’s the goal of ChargeBite, anyway.
Brazilian authorities have just ruled in favor of a small handset manufacturer called Gradiente Electronica in its trademark conflict with Apple. Gradiente registered the name “iphone” in 2000, seven years before Apple set up shop in that country, so it has the right to continue using the word on its devices—including the Android-powered iphone Neo One. BBC reports that Apple is likely to appeal the decision.
