Plus: A new round of security updates

We just hit 100 subscribers for this little newsletter! 🥳 Thank you for being here!

It’s less than 48 hours until Apple’s Wonderlust event, where we’ll see new phones, watches, and what else? I’ll talk a bit about that below. Also, there’s a new episode of Basic AF where we ask, “can the iPad be your only computing device?” And of course, there are new security updates from Apple. Let’s go!

Apple’s annual fall extravaganza is less than 48 hours away! You can watch the event on Tuesday, 9/12, at 1 PM ET on apple.com or the Apple TV app.

During the event, Apple will show off new iPhone and Apple Watch models, including the iPhone 15 and 15 Pro and Apple Watch Series 9. We should also learn when the new operating systems will be released, which is typically about a week after the event when the new devices go on sale, though macOS sometimes lags behind.

We’ll thoroughly break down the announcements in the next episode of Basic AF, so watch for that. And I’ll also provide a recap here in the newsletter.

🎙️ Basic AF: iPhone Event Preview, Betas Update, and Can the iPad Be Your Only Computer?

There’s a new episode of the show available for your listening enjoyment. In this one, we preview the Apple event, and Jeff gives us a status update on the betas, which seem to be in pretty good shape as Apple winds down testing and gets ready for release.

We wrap up our discussion by exploring the potential of the iPad as an "only computer" device. Should you do it? Can you do it? Well, it depends, and we're here to help you figure it all out.
