Why your groceries are late: Instacart strike is still on

Why your groceries are late: Instacart strike is still on

Last week we reported on a strike being organized by the Gig Workers Collective with Instacart Shoppers. Over the weekend, Instacart indicated they'd be updating health and safety measures. Instacart did not reply directly to the strike announcement, but the timing of their announcement would seem to be done in order to avoid the strike - at least in part. Unfortunate for the Instacart business, their response was not enough to quell the demands of the Gig Workers Collective and/or Instacart Shoppers, and the strike is still on.

2020 iPad Pro teardown and durability test look very familiar

2020 iPad Pro teardown and durability test look very familiar

Despite all odds and talk about delayed or insufficient supplies, Apple launched what may be its biggest change to the iPad Pro line yet. Actually, the biggest change may not be from the iPad Pro itself but from its keyboard accessory. Yes, the 2020 iPad Pro, specifically the larger 12.9-inch model, has a new LiDAR for augmented reality purposes. But aside from the few hardware upgrades, it seems that this year's iPad Pros are nearly identical to 2018's iPad Pros, and not in the good ways.

The iPad Pro isn’t a computer still

The iPad Pro isn’t a computer still

At last, track pad for the iPad. For many of us, it would seem like the final step to having a lightweight and ultra-convenient tablet replace a bulky laptop. After all, the iPad Pro has always boasted laptop-beating specs, especially at the price. And few screens match the color-accuracy and gorgeous fluidity of its screen. Having one of the best smart pens in the business sure helps too.

Macs with ARM processors coming early next year according to Kuo

Macs with ARM processors coming early next year according to Kuo

One of the longest-running rumors about Apple's Macs and MacBooks is that they will eventually offer configurations with ARM processors rather than Intel's. If analyst Ming-chi Kuo is to be believed, that will finally happen in the last quarter of the year or early 2021 at the latest. Apple's foray into making its own Apple A CPUs for iPhones and iPads definitely lends some credibility to that outlook but, as Microsoft found out the hard way, it takes more than an ARM chip to make a successful ARM computer.

Original Apple sneakers just sold for nearly $10k

Original Apple sneakers just sold for nearly $10k

This week a pair of original Apple sneakers sold for just under 10-THOUSAND dollars. Given the relative rarity of these shoes, their notable history, and the fact that they've only come up for sale a few times in the last decade, the price isn't too far off what was expected. Compare this price to what's fetched for a pair of Back to the Future Nike Air MAG shoes, and you might be surprised how affordable these Apple sneakers ended up being.

Apple AR/VR headset controller test device leaked

Apple AR/VR headset controller test device leaked

Today we're looking at what's likely an internal testing device made by Apple for the near-future release of AR/VR experiences aplenty. This isn't the first we've seen of this sort of hardware - it's not particularly unlike hardware used by HTC and Oculus/Facebook for their own VR headsets. This new leaked look at Apple hardware is almost certainly meant for internal testing only, as it has a certain... unrefined sort of look.

5G iPhone could be delayed to 2021 in worst-case scenario

5G iPhone could be delayed to 2021 in worst-case scenario

Although there were already signs that Apple's supplies would be affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, the general presumption has been that the company would push through with its scheduled product launch even if it meant starting off with limited supplies. Now the word from insiders in Apple's supply chain isn't exactly hopeful. Apple's first 5G-capable iPhone could be delayed beyond its initial September launch date and could extend even to 2021 at the extreme latest.

iFixit MacBook Air teardown has a sting in the tail

A week ago today, Apple revealed a new model for the MacBook Air. After years of fielding complaints about the butterfly keyboard seen on many modern MacBooks, Apple finally replaced it with the Magic Keyboard from the 16-inch MacBook Pro. As with all new Apple releases, iFixit has gotten its hands on one of these new MacBook Airs and has subjected it to a teardown to see what other new items might be lurking inside the machine.

ARKit 3.5 released to use new iPad Pro’s LiDAR

iOS 13.4, along with iPadOS 13.4, isn't the only big software release that Apple rolled out today. As part of its gift to iPad Pro users, it has announced the availability of ARKit version 3.5. Its biggest new feature is support for LiDARs which, of course, requires the new 2020 iPad Pro hardware. It may, however, also prefigure what may be coming to this year's iPhones as well.
