Weird thing about iPhone XR — no first-party cases from Apple (yet?). Only cases they’re promoting with pre-orders are from Otterbox, of all places. pic.twitter.com/2Fiq7C8uMz

In Apple News on iOS you can open any article in Safari via the share sheet. Am I getting this right that there’s no way to do that in Apple News on Mojave? I don’t even see a way to copy the original URL.

Did anyone at Apple even try using these Marzipan apps?

So something like this to make the new tab and make it current:

tell application "Safari"
tell front window
set _old_tab to current tab
set _new_tab to make new tab at after _old_tab
set current tab to _new_tab
end tell
end tell

I highly doubt Apple would hold an event for new iPads and MacBooks before XR ships. Doesn’t make sense let them take attention away from each other. I don’t expect event until October 30 or 31 or November.

1. Fraction of iPhone users who even *consider* a new phone after one year is tiny.
2. How is this different than any other S year? Or 6S → 7?
3. The marketing message to those who do care is that the camera is way better, and much of that from Neural Engine, and thus exclusive.

AirPower must be well and truly fucked. No one at Apple will say a word about it, even off the record. And as a result they didn’t even mention inductive charging during the event, even though the XS and XR both charge faster than the X.

I can’t believe they actually went with “XS” but then again, I couldn’t believe they’d pronounce it “ten” instead of “ex” last year too.
