Podcast 523: Nothing is certain but new iPhones and taxes

As we prepare for the launch of the next iPhone and Apple Watch, Apple runs into some major tax trouble in Europe.

OK, now we're getting somewhere. Apple confirmed its next press event, where we expect Tim Cook and Friends to formally unveil the next iPhone (iPhone 7, iPhone 6SE, iPhone Super Pro All Star, whatever it's called), and possibly-hopefully-dare-we-say-probably a new Apple Watch. We're stoked.

In less rah-rah news, Apple has also found itself in hot water with the European Commission over the peanuts it pays in corporate taxes in Ireland. Apple of course vigorously denies the charges, but we don't find its explanations so reassuring. This story isn't going anywhere, so we'll keep an eye on it.
