This week's stories

AirPods Max first impressions: Impressive build, ridiculous case

  • The “first impressions” reviews of the AirPods Max are out, and, well, they’re pretty darn good.

Water-resistance, U1 chip, swappable bands are just a few things MIA from AirPods Max

  • Apple’s U1 chip, which lets devices more accurately connect to others nearby using ultra-wideband technology, didn't make it into Apple’s pricey new $549 AirPods Max headphones.

That weird AirPods Max case gives jokesters plenty of ammo

  • After Apple unveiled AirPods Max this morning, the internet jumped quickly into mockery mode. The pricey over-the-ears headphones come with a case that lots of jokesters think looks like a bra.

Apple Car could hit the road in 2024

  • Apple is moving ahead with an autonomous vehicle. It’s reportedly already talking to component makers and might unveil the Apple Car in 2024 or 2025.
