Rumors swirl on iPhone 14, Apple Watch Series 8, and Apple TV
Leading the news cycle this week was Jon Prosser’s reveal of the purported “iPhone 14.” This new device looks like a more modern version of the iPhone 4, with a titanium chassis and no notch or camera bump. But being so early, it has given us a bit of pause.
Ming-Chi Kuo this week also projected the Apple Watch Series 7 is on track for its September debut, but he also gave some insight on the Series 8. Apple Watch Series 8, according to Kuo is said to include a temperature sensor, something backed up by existing patents.
Lastly, it seems Apple was close to releasing a low-cost Apple TV dongle but the project was eventually killed for fear it would damage Apple’s reputation as a premium hardware maker.
