1. Fraction of iPhone users who even *consider* a new phone after one year is tiny.
2. How is this different than any other S year? Or 6S → 7?
3. The marketing message to those who do care is that the camera is way better, and much of that from Neural Engine, and thus exclusive.

AirPower must be well and truly fucked. No one at Apple will say a word about it, even off the record. And as a result they didn’t even mention inductive charging during the event, even though the XS and XR both charge faster than the X.

Daring Fireball: Much Ado About Click-Through
But that’s not a solution to either problem: that click-through behavior should be consistent system-wide; and that the aforementioned consistent click-through behavior should be off by default, and on only for certain situations.

Daring Fireball: The Problems With Click-Through
Better is a default policy where click-through is off by default, and enabled only for exceptions where there is little or no downside when click-through isn’t intended. Thus, in most cases, buttons are not good candidates for click-through. But draggable objects, like file and folder icons in the Finder (and similar apps, such as FTP programs), are.

Interesting difference from 10 years ago. Apple Legal jumped on 9to5Mac in 2007 for publishing an Apple photo of the upcoming fat Nano:https://t.co/L0oIyc2Ogv

This year, no response.

I wonder how many people have put off AirPod purchases while waiting for the AirPower-compatible case?

Get one of these $11 stands from Anker. Works great with iPads too (which is what I usually use it with).https://t.co/yyre2HIZ8T pic.twitter.com/RNzjeGGuQ5

These apps are not good. It’s that simple.

I don’t think anything new from Apple will ever be called iAnything ever again. Hasn’t happened once post-Jobs.

If Tesla has a sustainable advantage, I agree that it’s their treatment of software (and computing in general) as a first-class component.

I can’t believe they actually went with “XS” but then again, I couldn’t believe they’d pronounce it “ten” instead of “ex” last year too.

Given the “ten-ess” name for the OLED models, I think it’s pretty obvious the other new one will be iPhone 9.

Use the Keyboard System Prefs panel to map Cmd-V to Paste and Match Style. Will work in every app.

The poll results at the bottom of this @benlovejoy piece on my Shake to Undo piece are eye-opening. Only 35 percent of responders ever use Shake to Undo, and 85 percent agree that Apple should add an Undo button above the iPhone keyboard.https://t.co/kl0PYDnQ3q

Agreed. My argument is NOT “https://t.co/ZblEzFPlv5 sucks”. Just not to my liking.

But https://t.co/ZblEzFPlv5 for Mac does indeed suck — because it’s dead.

This is my thinking too, but you’d think they could track a lot just from the fact that they control the APIs. https://t.co/D7wpUKA8vK
