AppleInsider editor Victor Marks and writer William Gallagher discuss:

  • Jason Appelbaum, CEO of joins to talk, and schools Victor on good charging habits.
  • Apple is building a huge $1B HQ2 in Austin, Texas-and increasing employment around the US.
  • Qualcomm was granted an injunction agains iPhone sales in China, and is pushing for one in the United States.
  • Apple interprets the Chinese injunction differently than Qualcomm does, and continues to sell new iPhones in China. We'll see how that strategy works for the both of them.
  • Meanwhile, it's becoming clear that Apple wants to make their own cellular modem and not be dependent on Qualcomm going forward.
  • Apple has as many as 50 doctors on staff. Cardiologists, Pediatricians, Orthopedic surgeons. Apple is going to be a force in changing how we use consumer devices in health going forward. Victor thinks ECG is just the beginning.
  • Apple's streaming service picks up a Sony exec to head up casting. William is skeptical.
  • Intel details a product roadmap using 3D chip stacking for new CPUs. Look for potential Mac Pro and iMac Pro updates in 2019.
  • Algoriddim (we talked with Michael Simmons last week) launches their new djay for iOS app, for free with Pro features available by subscription.
  • Verizon enables eSIM activation via the MyVerizon app, instead of a clunky QR code activation process. It appears to work only for new customers, not existing ones, but this is cool if you have an XR, XS, or XS Max.
