This week on AI: Apple v. Qualcomm, OLED iPhone rumors, MacBook Pro updates and more

Perhaps the star rumor this week was that this year's OLED iPhone will actually have 5.8-inch wraparound screen, rather than the 5.1- to 5.2-inch size previously hinted. It was a busy news period overall though, including lawsuits with Qualcomm, major Logic and GarageBand updates, and teases of future MacBooks plus a second-generation Apple Pencil.
