All of a sudden the Apple Press is seemingly convinced that Apple has a new High fidelity music streaming service ready to launch in the “Coming Weeks” — this would bring lossless, or at least less lossy music to Apple Music — lets call it Apple Music HiFi for now. There had been questions about whether Apple would launch such a service since Spotify announced their own HIFI service, as well as in the wake of AirPods Max being released last December. The service is rumoured to cost $9.99 per user, although it’s unclear if that’s a surcharge over the base cost or means that HiFi would be included in Apple Music subscriptions by default.
And speaking of AirPods, It would surely make sense for Apple’s next generation AirPods that we’ve been seeing leaks of recently to come along with any new music service. There expected to be the third generation of Apple’s true wireless buds with a new design and potentially wireless charging as standard at $149.
There have also been rumours of other AirPods lines, including AirPods X (presumably based on the low cost Beats), AirPods Pro 2 and AirPods Pro Lite which might be the worst product name I’ve heard in my life.
If there IS to be a May event, I’d expect it to be on May 11th with invites going out tomorrow, May 4th, but A few weeks could also refer to WWDC. If there is another product event before WWDC though, I’d expect the event to be filled out with M1X Macs, most likely the larger iMac but possibly also with MacBook Pro models and a Mac mini.
Apple Watch could well be set to join the rest of Apple’s product line up with a redesign this year in September, and the renders you can see now show what an Apple Watch with the flat sided design from iPad Pro and iPhone 12 could look on your wrist. As always our renders come from Apple_Tomorrow on Twitter, and show just how amazing these could look.
As I’ve mentioned before, Apple Watch could also be adding Blood Glucose monitoring in 2021, bringing even more information in addition to the flagship watch’s ECG and blood oxygen level monitoring, fall detection and irregular heartbeat detection. Add to that keeping you active and moving, and Apple Watch is seriously good for your health.

Vik-Thor Rose Asks… Dave, what to you think is the possibility of Apple releasing an updated iPad mini? (I’ve got a 4th gen, and the battery is starting to lose capacity… I’d like to get one with Apple Pencil.)
Jim Frank III Asks… eye cave answers What is the best way to move all my iTunes data from my Windows 10 laptop to a Mac mini Big Sur. Will I have to reenter my iPhone encryption code? Thanks Dave, keep up the great work.
