Everyone’s antsy for Apple’s next move. This week we discuss the rumored March 15 event, and how we think a lot of people could get pretty excited about a “new” 4-inch iPhone 5se. The new iPad Air should have some cool features too, and it probably makes sense that Apple would happily roll out new mayonnaise loops but avoid getting locked in to a yearly refresh cycle for the Apple Watch hardware itself.
But new iPhones and iPads aren’t enough to impress those weirdos on Wall Street, who are obsessed with viewing Apple’s business three months at a time, and aren’t that wild about where the company is right now. We talk about if that’s reasonable, and what it could mean for regular customers like us. Oh, and speaking of the earnings call, what’s this about Tim Cook’s interest in VR?
