We’re already in the lead up to Apple’s next hardware showcase, which will likely focus on its phones and wearables. This could mark a shake for the Apple Watch — the first since the Series 4 Watch in 2018. The high-end variant of the Apple Watch Series 8 could feature the largest display Apple has ever packed into its smartwatches Bloombergis Mark Gurman.
With a bigger battery and Apple’s long-rumoured power saving mode, Gurman says the Watch “Pro” could last for days on a single charge. Which, for me at least, is the dream for Apple wearables.
Rumors suggest that Apple is releasing a slew of new hardware for the fall. Alongside new phones and wearables, we could see refreshed next-gen iPads and HomePods, possibly with screens.

A growing group of educational influencers can help.

That doesn’t sound safe at first.
Automakers are often keen to showcase self-driving concept cars without steering wheels, but Baidu is close to putting such a vehicle on real roads. The tech giant has unveiled a new robotaxi, the Apollo RT6, with a detachable steering wheel. With this option, ride-hailing services offer more space for passengers — perhaps for extra seats or even desks. The car will cost businesses in China the equivalent of $37,000 and is expected to debut in 2023 with Baidu’s own Apollo Go service.
