Hello! I hope you’re well. It’s been a bit of a busy week here at iMore as the team prepares for Black Friday, but that doesn’t mean we weren’t looking for all the Apple-related news we could find, and boy was it news week.
Having covered Apple for the last six years, I have to say; It usually doesn’t shock me too much in the world of technology. This week, however, a little surprise awaited me. Some of the news that came out this week was really breathtaking and muttered “amazing” as the iMore team covered some weird stories. The good news is that a lot of more normal things are happening here at iMore that it was easy to keep your head in the game.

Strange news review
Probably the most talked about Apple’s pinching and zooming function since the original launch of this feature on the first iPhone happened in a very high-profile lawsuit this week. When the evidence was to be submitted to the court on the iPad, there was a debate about whether zooming the footage on the iPad would somehow alter the video using AI.
Leaving aside the Rittenhouse case policy, it was really bizarre to see and hear the judge and defense counsel arguing about something that was clearly not an issue. It’s just a stark reminder that technology is in our daily lives, and people in important positions still don’t understand how it works. Honestly, it’s a little scary.
In less intense news, someone sold the iPhone X on eBay for $ 86,001, which is shocking in itself; however, it has been modified to have a USB-C port instead of Apple’s Lightning port. Proof that the appetite for the iPhone USB-C is still alive and well, and perhaps too voracious. Sure, since it’s unique, I guess it’s a collector’s item, but how many more stories like this do we need before Apple gives people the USB-C iPhone they so clearly want?
Great reading of iMore this week

While we’ve all been scratching our heads for the news this week, some of my colleagues have written some really great parts this week.
Starting with Bryan’s review of the MacBook Pro (2021), which was such a great read that I wondered if I needed a MacBook Pro. I don’t. By no means am I a “professional” user, and the M1 iMac I’m currently working on is more than enough for me. I can’t imagine what I would do at all with the power of the M1 Pro or M1 Max at my fingertips.
Still, Bryan’s review was a great detailed look at his experience with the 14-inch MacBook Pro, and if you want to buy a new MacBook Pro this holiday season, take a look at what Bryan has to say about the best Mac he’s ever used.

Another great read this week is my colleague Adam’s look at the legacy Ted Lasso created for Apple TV + and ponders the question, can Apple TV + be successful without Ted Lasso? It’s a good question, all TV shows have to come to an end, so they don’t become boring, ridiculous or too predictable. No doubt Ted Lasso gave Apple TV + a ton of good print and probably even brought some subscribers to the platform, so can he survive without it?

I hope you had a great week, your weekend is wonderful, and as always, thanks for reading.
