Apple’s BIG plans for next-gen AirPods (+ our $100,000 AAPL stock investment update!).

This week’s Apple news

Why Apple pushed back AirPods Studio debut; new AirPods and AirPods Pro on the way

  • Apple is currently working on updates for its entry-level AirPods and AirPods Pro, which could debut in 2021, Bloomberg reported Monday.

Original Home REMAINS outstanding, now getting even better

  • I’ve broken apart my stereo pair, so one HomePod is now in my living room. Breaking apart the stereo pair was not a simple process, but HomePod blows away Echo in my living room. Just one fills the room beautifully.

Apple may have underestimated the popularity of iPhone 12 Pro

  • Apple was seemingly banking on the midrange iPhone 12 being its most popular new handset this year. But it appears the company may have underestimated just how popular the new iPhone 12 Pro is with consumers.

Apple earnings: Can iPad and Mac pick up the iPhone slack again?

  • Weak iPhone sales likely pulled down Apple earnings in its last financial quarter. But the pandemic almost certainly pushed up demand for iPad and Mac. Still, total revenue is expected to be down slightly.
