The more the boxes change, the more they stay the same... or don't.

(talk about the hardware here)

Also, AT&T is retiring their 2G network, so the original iPhone will no longer work. Oddly, this makes me more nostalgic for the old device than its anniversary did.

My iPad 3 is usable, but on its last legs. A newer one that is night shift mode capable would be great.

I would consider a 12" iPad pro if it has a refresh to at least bring it to parity with the 9" iPad pro. Not that I'd probably notice, it's more just they psychological "buyers remorse".

I can see Apple doing away with GPUs altogether now, saying there's external 3rd party solutions. Even thinner & lighter!

Why can Tesla have such a high rate of innovation and Apple can't make a new iPad Pro every year?

Apple is the polar opposite of Tesla as Tesla is the Apple of 15 years ago...

Airpods disconnect during calls. I had this happen to me; my only long phone call with the Airpods. It was a dial-in meeting, and I had muted the phone. About ten minutes in, the Airpods just cut out. The call was still active on the phone, the Airpods just turned off and could not be re-activated. I switched to wired headphones for the rest of the meeting.

This hasn't happened to me while listening to music or on my usual, brief phone calls.

A 1.0 product bug, I'm sure.

Hmmm... Still too "thin & light" ;-)

What's wrong with this picture? Oh and no new iMac since late 2015. WHY IS THIS SO HARD? It's not like they shouldn't just upgrade for bragging rights.

That's about 80% faster than mine. Computers are just on upgrade cycles longer than two years, now especially.

According to that, my MBP is the fastest one ever made, which is just sad given how unusable it is.

Providing the end goal isn't to embrace extend extinguish the MacOS, that's potentially a great move.

Except for boot camp.

MS is prepping Windows for ARM, too, so it may not be a deal-breaker for Boot Camp. Although I don't think that Apple is highly motivated to keep Boot Camp, and may use a change in processors as an excuse to discontinue it. (This opinion not based on any facts at all, just a gut feeling. Truthiness.)

They don't really support boot camp that much. I don't think they support it via applecare do they? If you went to the apple store with boot camp, would they help you set it up.
