The Key Takeaways From Apple’s (AAPL) ‘Hi, Speed’ Event For Investors

As expected, at its “Hi, Speed” event Apple (AAPL) debuted its several new 5G iPhone models, expanded its iPhone lineup from as low as $399 to a high as $1099, and introduced a new device, the HomePod Mini. Along with the new products, CEO Tim Cook continued to reinforce the company’s commitment to privacy, calling out how the feature is intrinsic within each device. But the item that caught our attention was the special offers that were announced by mobile carriers for Apple’s new iPhone models.

Early on in the event, Hans Vestberg, Chairman and CEO of Verizon (VZ) appeared to discuss his company’s 5G nationwide network and 5G Ultra-Wideband offering, including a focus on network capacity in stadiums, airports, and music venues – if anyone can remember what those are. Investors were apparently impressed by what Vestberg had to say as his company’s share price, having dropped over

ItelliFest 2020 – a good example of the virtual tech event experience

(screenshot)

Last week, itelligence UK ran four days of virtual sessions in its effort to turn the annual in-person event into something useful for customers and potential customers. Dubbed itelliFest, it worked out pretty well although, for me, the experience was exhausting.  

Unlike my colleague Jon Reed, I’ve tended to eschew virtual events following the catastrophic cluster that was SAPPHIRENow 2020. At best, my attention span runs 90 minutes these days, hardly conducive to a vendor demanding my attention over a full day. But then ever it was so.

Even with in-person events, I stopped physically attending keynotes years ago as more firms live streamed. Why bother getting crushed or worse still shepherded to specific ‘reserved’ seating when I could get an aerial view from the flying cameras coupled to on the ground backchannel Tweet commentary while still enjoying a cuppa in my hotel room jammies? Attending a near non-stop

Apple’s 2020 iPhone Event Had An Unmistakable Undercurrent That Was All About Accessibility

Apple this morning held its second event in as many months, announcing a new HomePod Mini and a range of new iPhones. The iPhone is undeniably Apple’s crown jewel product, and the new ones look as stellar as ever, while the baby HomePod feels like something Cupertino should’ve launched years ago.

Forget 5G networking. Forget the Pro Max’s LiDAR sensor and fancy camera tricks. Forget the (albeit delightful) new color finishes on both iPhones. Forget HomePod Mini doesn’t (for now?) support Spotify. If you’re someone who cares deeply about accessibility, disabled or not, the high-level take from today’s announcement was unmistakable. Everything Apple announced today has some sort of accessibility story that will define the user experience for legions of buyers with disabilities. It’s yet another lesson that accessible hardware matters just as much as accessible software.

Look no further than the reintroduction of MagSafe to the Apple
