1. (PRODUCT)RED edition iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and/or iPhone X very soon? Steve Hemmerstoffer, who runs the OnLeaks account on Twitter, says at least one red-colored iPhone might be released soon. However, he says his source is unverified, so treat this rumor with a dose of skepticism.

(PRODUCT)RED edition iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus


Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang also said Apple may release a (PRODUCT)RED edition of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and/or iPhone X. A year ago this week, Apple unveiled a special (PRODUCT)RED edition of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, so there's certainly some precedence to suggest this rumor may be true.

2. Apple edits iPhone X ad that captured an animation glitch: A week ago, 9to5Mac's Benjamin Mayo noticed the iPhone X ad "Unlock" captured a minor bug causing some text to briefly appear outside of notification bubbles on the lock screen. The bug can be seen in the tweet below or in GIF form over at The Verge.


As it turns out, Apple has quietly edited the video to remove any evidence of the glitch, somehow without re-uploading it to its YouTube channel. The irony is that Apple hasn't fixed the bug in the latest iOS 11.3 beta, but given the attention it has now received, expect that to change soon.

I wish they would make a Product Red phone with a black face. Red and black is such an awesome combination... Red and white, not so much.

If Apple says it's red, it's RED! ;)

Besides, when I do a search for "red glass," I get back a ton of matches of apparently red glass. For example...



...and this one...



...which apparently depicts the first guy forced to depend on either Siri or Apple Maps. :eek:

Just kidding: Siri is a perfect virtual assistant in every possible way and Apple Maps never, ever leads me to a wrong destination. Those are tears of joy at the privilege of getting to partake of Siri & Maps;)

There won’t be no product red iPhone this year it’s a glass back come on
All they have to do is either paint the back side of the glass or tint the glass itself, as they do with the space gray versions.

I'm actually astonished that a company named "apple" doesn't make every product available in a candy apple red color. Seems like an enormous missed opportunity to me.

Report Highlights Danger of Using AirTags for Tracking Dogs

Monday January 30, 2023 1:45 pm PST by

At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
