On the show this week:

Non-Retina MacBook Pro disappears from Apple Stores

  • Apple has begun removing the 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro from its retail store displays

  • The non-Retina MacBook Pro is the only laptop left in Apple’s lineup with an optical drive. It’s also the most affordable MacBook Pro at just $1,099, but without the slimmer form factor, Retina display, and features like Force Touch

  • The machine hasn’t seen a refresh since 2012, which means it’s not too surprising to see that Apple is no longer pushing it

iPhone 7 will have more tiny design changes you won’t notice

  • The iPhone 7 is set to be one of the most boring updates Apple’s ever released. The new iPhone will look just like the iPhone 6/6s

  • The Wall Street Journalcalled the changes set to be introduced in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus "subtle," while Ming Chi Kuo has said the device will not have many "attractive selling points." 

  • Longer Earpiece cutout

  • Relocated ambient light sensor

iPhone 7 will be boring, according to WSJ

  • Rumors that the iPhone 7 will be a snooze-worthy update have been seemingly confirmed today by The Wall Street Journal, which claims Apple plans to break from its traditional pattern of redesigning its flagship device every year.

  • This year’s iPhone will come with plenty of minor upgrades, but according to the new report, some iPhone 7 features that Apple hoped to integrate just weren’t ready for a 2016 rollout.

  • During a meeting with an Apple executive last month, a China-based engineer asked why this year’s iPhone didn’t get a major design change. “The answer, one person at the meeting recalled, was that the new technology in the pipeline will take time to implement,” reports the Journal.

  • The WSJ says Apple hoped to implement a curved screen into the iPhone 7 but the technology wasn’t ready. The company supposedly hopes to integrate big new features next year, though, for the 10th anniversary of the iPhone.

  • A10

  • Blue color

  • Dual lens camera on the 7 Plus, larger camera on the 7

  • Better water proofing

  • Better looking antenna bands

  • Lightning headphone jack/dongle

Get your dongle on: iPhone 7 to include Lightning adapter

  • The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will ship with regular 3.5mm EarPods, according to a new report from Macotakara that claims Apple will include a 3.5mm to Lightning Adapter so you’re not force to buy new headphones with your new iPhone.

  • The report also claims that by removing the headphone jack on the iPhone 7, Apple will add a row of speaker holes on the right side.

iPhone 7 price leak promises Pro model, 256GB of storage

  • An alleged price list for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 series suggests there will be a high-end “Pro” model after all. Fans could also get 256GB storage options, while 32GB of storage could become the minimum.

  • According to an iPhone 7 price list posted on Chinese micro-blogging network Weibo, there will be an iPhone 7 Pro in Apple’s lineup this fall.
