This week’s stories:
Too late: Apple Vision Pro preorders sell out fast
Seven months after its announcement at WWDC23, Apple started accepting preorders for its Vision Pro headset Friday morning — and quickly sold out. Shipping dates for the company’s first AR headset slipped within minutes of preorders opening. More Vision Pro headsets sold on launch weekend than you might expect 9to5Mac: Vision Pro scalpers used bots to place thousands of pre-orders; face check no barrier Win a portable magnetic 3-in-1 wireless charger [Cult of Mac giveaway]
Kuxiu X55 3-in-1 Foldable Magnetic Wireless Charger and Stand gives you a compact, lightweight way to keep your iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods wireless charging case charged up pretty much anywhere. New Apple sideloading rules require pre-approval for iPhone apps
Apple gave EU developers the guidelines and access to the tools needed for sideloading — installing applications that don’t go through the App Store. iPhone App Store change allows streaming games and mini apps Apple will allow alternative browser defaults and engines in EU Apple opens iPhone tap-to-pay to third parties in EU MacRumors: New iPad Air, iPad Pro, and MacBook Air Models Likely to Launch in March or April
Finally, Apple car coming in 2028
Apple still plans to put a car on the road, but the release date for the Apple car is sometime in 2028, according to a new report. And designers had to slam the brakes on hopes for full self driving.
