Meet the one auto CEO who’s excited by the rumored Apple Car

With mounting evidence that Apple is at the very least exploring the possibility of developing a car, we’ve seen the expected influx of comments from auto industry veterans skeptical of Apple’s plans.  A few weeks ago, for example, former GM CEO Dan Akersson cautioned Apple that they have no idea what they’re getting into. Shortly thereafter, Mercedes-Benz chief Dieter Zetsche essentially laughed off the notion that an Apple Car might pose any sort of competitive threat.

The incredible (and hilarious) way Apple kept the Apple Watch a secret

The incredible (and hilarious) way Apple kept the Apple Watch a secret

The hype and speculation surrounding Apple’s September Apple Watch event was unprecedented, understandably so given Apple’s track record of driving innovation in new product categories. What made the event all the more exciting is that Apple was successfully able to keep important details of the device completely under wraps.

In a broad sense, sure, we knew Apple was likely to introduce a wearable device of some sort. But key details surrounding the device’s capabilities, and even what the design looked like, remained unknown until Tim Cook officially walked up on stage and unveiled the Apple Watch for the first time.

Apple’s secret plan to maximize Apple Watch battery life

Apple’s secret plan to maximize Apple Watch battery life

The New York Times is reporting that Apple has a previously undisclosed plan to maximize battery life on the Apple Watch as much as possible.

According to the report, Apple’s watch team “developed a yet-to-be-announced feature called Power Reserve.” As the name implies, the Apple Watch in Power Reserve mode will run on low energy and will only display the time. Which is to say, all of the device’s other functions such as notifications and activity monitoring will presumably go into a sleep mode in an effort to conserve juice.

It’s also a question that Tim Cook and the team at Apple had to ask themselves, but they appear to have come up with an answer.

Not sure which Apple Watch to buy? Here’s every single model Apple will make

When Apple unveiled its “one more thing” at the end of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus media event, the company repeatedly spoke of the numerous ways the device can be customized. Apple Watch buyers will be able to choose a case type, size, strap model, digital watch face, apps and many other features

In total, Apple said there will be millions of different combinations — likely a valid claim when taking into account all the different things buyers can customize — but Business Insider points out there are just 22 versions of the Apple Watch to choose from. More →
