Apple had their "Hi Speed" iPhone event Tuesday, confirming four new iPhones including the new iPhone Mini. But Leo says that they left a few things hanging including when the new Apple Silicon Macs will be announced. Leo says it's likely going to be a seperate event around the middle of November. Tuesday, all Apple talked about is the new Homepod Mini, an intelligent voice assistant/speaker running Siri. The important thing about the HPMini is the price. $99 putting it closer in line with Amazon's Alexa and the Google Home Assistant.

Episode 1735

Coming Tuesday, Apple is having another event, hinted by the title "Hi, Speed."  Leo says the event is believed the launch of Apple's new 5G capable iPhone 12. There will be four new models, including a new "iPhone Mini," all supported with 5G, even though Leo says that 5G doesn't matter. This is because there's low band 5G, which isn't any faster than LTE, and then mid-high range 5G. Leo says that it will be at least a year or two before 5G will be widespread in this country. Until then, 5G is just marketing.
