This week’s stories:
Cheaper Apple Vision AR headset might launch next year
A cheaper version of Apple’s Vision augmented reality headset has reportedly been fast-tracked. The goal is supposedly to have the scaled-back device on the market by next year. Apple Watch Series 10 could get larger but thinner
The Apple Watch Series 10 might adopt a thinner design with a bigger display. Reportedly, Apple will bump the chassis size from 41mm and 45mm to 45mm and 49mm. M4 MacBook Pro could launch before 2024 ends
Apple could refresh its MacBook Pro lineup with M4 chips as soon as Q4 2024. Based on supply-chain checks, panel shipments for the 14-inch and 16-inch models will start in Q3 2024. Hands-on with iOS 18: Impressive but incomplete
After spending a few days trying out all the new features in iOS 18, I think it really is one of the biggest updates in a long time. However, hands-on testing shows there’s a lot that needs cleaned up before September, when it’s expected to ship. 11 hidden iOS 18 features Apple did not tell you about
Here’s a roundup of all the little changes and useful features in iOS 18. MoviePass, MovieCrash
