This week’s been another fun filled week of iOS related news in the tech scene. Perhaps the most important announcement was that Apple sent out invites to an event at the Yerba Buena Center on Tuesday October 22. It’s widely expected that it’ll be used to debut the new iPad(s) and a few other pieces. As well as that this week, I gave my thoughts on the two new iPhones after 3 weeks with them, and came to the conclusion that the 5s doesn’t offer me enough right now to justify keeping it over my iPhone 5 and 5c. There was plenty more, so dig in (headlines are links to the original articles):
Summarizing this post in a few lines isn’t easy. But, essentially, the noticeable improvement between the iPhone 5 and 5s is so slight, that I find it hard to justify keeping it. The iPhone 5c on the other hands feels and looks completely different, and is definitely my preferred phone to use as a daily driver.
We’ll almost certainly see an iPad 5 next week, but what else will Apple announce along side it? New MacBooks, iPhones, Mavericks?
Looks like BBerry’s CMO spoke to soon on this one. It’s “days” since he made the comment, and BBM still hasn’t materialized on the App Store.
Apple’s last attempt at a wireless headset was a disaster, but, if it did make them to match iPhone 5s and 5c, how would they look?
One story popping up late last night was that some Apple employees (jokingly) called the gold iPhone the “Kardashian” phone.
