Steve Jobs, co-founder and former Chief Executive Officer of Apple, will be posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The announcement was made by the White House earlier today.
While June leaned heavily into new seasons of existing shows, like Physical and Home, it looks like July is all about the new-new. That doesn't mean Apple TV+ isn't leaving some room for a brand new season of an existing property, though. And one of the service's best, at that.
Apple introduced a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 processor under the hood at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference. (It was that other laptop the company introduced that wasn't the brand new, redesigned MacBook Air with M2.) It's been on sale for a bit of time now, so it's only appropriate that it gets the teardown treatment.
Apple made a hardware announcement at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference, debuting the first look at the redesigned MacBook Air. Of course, the other hardware element was the debut of Apple's new M2 chip, which powers the new machine. Unfortunately for folks who want the new laptop, it's been a bit of a waiting game as Apple plans to launch the laptop sometime in July.
While there was a bit of a lull throughout the year that was 2021, Apple has been working pretty consistently to bring new content to Apple TV+ on a pretty regular basis throughout 2022. And that trend continues leading into July, too, with a handful of new shows set to arrive. And that includes the family-friendly series Best Foot Forward.
As far as credit card cash back deals are concerned, Apple's offering is par for the course for the most part. But, to help stand out a little bit, Apple is boosting the cash back offerings for select retailers through some of the summer months. But the deal will only last for so long.
See started out as one of the more "out there" ideas for Apple TV+, giving the streaming service a big dose of sci-fi apocalyptic storytelling, with a lot of hand-to-hand combat that was actually pretty great to watch. The first season started out a bit rough, but by the time the final episode aired it was easily one of the best shows not only one Apple's video streaming service, but just in general.
During the annual Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple confirmed that it is putting some major effort into the Home app. That means a brand new experience, one that's more streamlined and easier to use with more accessories in your home. But there's been some confusion regarding home hub support.
Belkin, one of the most renowned accessory makers for Apple's range of products, has recently updated a fan favorite with a welcomed new addition. Now, for folks who want to charge multiple devices at the same time, while also fast charging their supported Apple Watch, the 3-in-1 wireless charger can help with that.
It has been rumored for a bit of a stretch now that Apple is working on developing its own 5G modem for use in its mobile devices. The idea is to not have to rely on Qualcomm so much, just like Apple doesn't have to rely on Intel so much these days thanks to the M-series processors. However, while rumors said the modem's debut would come in 2023, that might not be the case after all.
A while back, Apple axed its Today at Apple in-store sessions due to the (ongoing) coronavirus pandemic. This meant that customers couldn't go into a physical retail shop and learn how to do cool things with their devices, like how to make eye-catching artwork on an iPad, for instance. To help with that, Apple started leaning into online tutorials instead, publishing YouTube videos to show folks how to take full advantage of their device(s) from an artistic perspective.
Apple TV+ has plenty of thrillers to watch, from Defending Jacbob to Severance, and plenty of other shows in between. But there's plenty of room for more. And the streaming service has one more on deck that will make its premiere in late July.
