This week’s Apple news

Cupertino might be hatching a plan to bring a custom Apple Store experience directly to your doorstep. A CultCast exclusive.

iPhone 12 might not come with earbuds or a charger in the box

  • The iPhone 12 reportedly will ship without packaged earbuds, but according to reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, it might also lack another standard piece of kit in its box: a charger.

Microsoft Stores are closing for good

  • Microsoft is pulling the plug on its chain of retail stores. All of them will be shuttered for good, although four — in New York City, London, Sydney and the company’s Redmond campus — will be turned into experience centers that don’t sell products.
