Taking a look back at another week of news and headlines from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop includes two mysterious new iPhones, a familiar Android feature arriving on iOS, Apple losing its innovation crown, details on the new iPads and iMacs for 2019, and Apple exploring an Apple Pay credit card.
Apple Loop is here to remind you of a few of the very many discussions that have happened around Apple over the last seven days
New iPhones Revealed
Although it is not the iPhone SE2 that many were hoping for, Apple appears ready to refresh the iPhone range at the mid-point of the product cycle. According to sources, both the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will pick up the now traditional Product (Red) color, which points to a new design technique from Cupertino. Forbes’ Gordon Kelly reports:
The leak reveals iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max Product(RED) editions are coming before the end of the month. This is exciting news as both phones have a steel chassis, a material which had previously stopped Apple from launching this iconic option with the iPhone X. So clearly a breakthrough has been made, which also opens up a world of future possibilities.
Interestingly, iPhoneHacks reveals the launch will begin in China before the end of the month. Apple (which has never used the Product(RED) brand in China due to political taboos) will attempt to woo Chinese buyers by calling the finish ‘China Red’.
