This week in Apple News we heard a rumor related to the possibility of Apple launching some of its 5G iPhones early in a country. Now this is just a rumor and it seems pretty far-fetched, but this is 2020 so anything is possible.
In other Apple news, we have a better idea on when the iPad Air might land in stores, some rumors regarding another item removed from the iPhone 12 charts, some statistics on App Store revenue, and much more!
Check out Apple’s news roundup below for the latest news.
The top Apple news of the past week:
- 5G iPhones could land in South Korea early: According to industry insiders speaking to The Korea Herald, South Koreans could see 5G iPhones before the rest of the world. Allegedly, Apple could launch the 5G models of the iPhone 12 in that country early due to the country’s widespread 5G access. However, this rumor is shaky, as Apple has always released iPhones in SK long after they are released in the United States.
- There may be no EarPods in the iPhone 12 pictures: According to some new wording in iOS 14.2, there may be no wired headphones in the box with new iPhone 12 devices. If this turns out to be true, that would suggest that the iPhone 12 boxes would probably just have the phone and a Lightning cable.
- The iPad Air version could be coming soon: Apple officially released an update to the iPad Air at its hardware event a few weeks ago, but it didn’t commit to an actual release date. Now, according to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, retailers are receiving marketing collateral for iPad Air, suggesting that a launch could happen very soon.
- Rokus will finally get AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support: Earlier this week, Roku revealed that some of its associated streamers and televisions would see HomeKit and AirPlay 2 support before the end of 2020. This would allow iPhones, iPads, and Macs to send videos, music, and other media directly to Roku devices. . This is similar to Google Cast, but specifically for Apple products. Roku fans will be happy with this as it will allow streamers to better compete with Apple TV boxes.
- Apple’s next big earnings call date revealed: Apple’s next quarterly earnings call will take place on Thursday, October 29, as officially confirmed by Apple. This call will be very different from previous years, as iPhones have only just been launched or possibly won’t even hit stores yet. Usually at the end of October, iPhones have been on the shelves for a few weeks.
- Again, App Store revenue is Play Store revenue: Every quarter and every year we are reminded over and over again that the Apple App Store makes more money than the Google Play Store, even though the Play Store is a lot. much larger. Once again, the numbers are in and the App Store apparently made twice as much revenue as the Play Store in the third quarter of 2020. Yawn.
- First film from directors of “Endgame” to come to Apple TV Plus: At the end of last week, Apple paid more than $ 40 million for a movie called “Cherry,” directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. This will be the directing duo’s first feature film since they directed “Avengers: Endgame.” The film is a crime drama based on a novel by Nico Walker.
