Here are just a few of the stories we covered during the week that was.
The biggest story of the week: An early start for 2016?
In recent years, Apple has elected to release most of the companys new products in the fall. That could change in 2016. New reports suggest a 4-inch iPhone 6c could be announced early next year. Also making an early arrival could be a fifth-generation Apple TV.
As Joe Whitenoted, the iPhone 6c could be announced as early as February. The surprising move would see Apple break from its traditional iPhone release cycle, which sees new models launch yearly in September.
Meanwhile, the next Apple TV is expected to include a brand new CPU that should dramatically improve the devices hardware performance, resulting in a faster, more power efficient set-top box.
