Report details Apple’s efforts to build a TV set, Eddy Cue’s tough negotiations w/ cable networks

The Wall Street Journal has posted an extensive report detailing Apple’s many attempts at getting serious about a TV product. This includes both hardware and software: the article says Apple did consider building a physical TV set at one stage. On the media front, the report says Apple’s harsh terms have put off the cable networks from getting onboard.

The article includes several choice anecdotes regarding Apple SVP Eddy Cue. In one case, Cue curtly responded to a cable network execs that “time is on my [Apple’s] side”. More after the jump …

Video appears to show official Lightning to 3.5mm adapter for iPhone 7 without headphone jack

Since the rumor started back in November, there’s been more and more evidence that the next iPhone will drop the 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of wireless or Lightning audio playback. A report last month claimed that Apple plans to bundle standard EarPods with the new iPhones in September and include a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter in the box. While this would mean all of the claimed Lightning EarPods we’ve seen so far are fake, it does lend credit to a video posted today that shows what appears to be an official Lightning to 3.5mm adapter…

Opinion: Will people sit out the iPhone 7 in hope of a stunning 10th anniversary model?

Back when most people were on plans that saw them offered a new phone every two years, upgrading wasn’t really a decision. Paying typically $0-200, depending on your plan, saw you get the latest iPhone every other year. It would have been silly to turn it down because you’d pay the same monthly amount either way.

So the only decision most people made was whether to be on the main ‘tick’ cycle, with the new designs, or the ‘tock’ cycle that gave you the S model with the same design but new features.

But now that carriers split out phone costs from usage plans, upgrading your phone becomes a much more conscious decision. You could do it every year, paying more but always having the latest model. You could continue on a two-year cycle. Or you could save a decent chunk of money by sitting out a year.

That latter option might once have seemed unlikely for 9to5Mac readers, who typically like to stay up to date, but this year could potentially be very different …

Apple patents Apple Watch-style digital crown for iPhone and iPad, hints at bezel-free devices

Not many of you agreed with me when I wrote an opinion piece a year ago saying that I could see a role for an Apple Watch-style digital crown on an iPhone, but a patent application published today shows that Apple is at least toying with the idea of introducing it to iOS devices.

Patently Apple spotted the patent application which shows a ‘rotary input’ device on an iPad …

Pre-orders for ‘iPhone 7’ now rumored for Sept. 9th, suggesting event during week of Sept. 5th

Over the weekend prominent leaker Evan Blass, @evleaks on Twitter, shared a couple of interesting dates for when the next iPhone will be released. Blass tweeted that the 2016 iPhone would be released during the week of September 12th, then later specified that Friday, September 16th would be the actual retail release.

Now Blass is digging further and adding that pre-orders for the next iPhone will “start on the 9th” which happens to be the Friday before the release date he shared previously.
