The year 2019 is set to be another big year for the tech giant, so take time to review our Apple roundup, including the latest stories, rumors, and announcements.

Apple’s stock has been hit by a downturn in late 2018 and early 2019, which some attribute to the China trade war and a plateau in smartphone sales throughout the industry; but many believe 2019 is still set to be a successful year for Apple. Between the launch of new iPhones and the introduction of their new streaming service on the way, Apple has a lot to look forward too. However, in the past year, the company has faced some criticism as well. Read our Apple roundup on the latest stories, rumors, and more.

11 Million iPhone Batteries Were Replaced Last Year
After news broke last year that Apple was slowing down aging iPhone batteries, they launched a battery replacement program. Insider John Gruber says the company replaced 11 million iPhone batteries during 2018. 11 million replaced iPhone batteries is 10 times more than the 1 to 2 million Apple expected to replace.

Apple Might Switch iPhones to USB-C and Launch New iPod Touch
Apple is rumored to be planning to release three new iPhones this year. The new phones are said to feature a new port. Apple might switch 2019 iPhones ports from lightning USB-C, instead of Lightning connections. 2018 iPad pros and Mac computers have already adopted USB-C ports.

Apple is also rumored to be developing a new iPod touch. The iPod touch is the only iPod still sold today, as Apple discontinued the nano and shuffle back in 2017. There is nothing sensational in store, according to rumour. The device is only expected to be marketed to younger users, who may add some purchasing power to expand income from iCloud storage, the App Store, iTunes, and Apple Music.

Available Now: New Apple Smart Battery Cases for the latest iPhone Models: iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.
Apple introduced new battery cases for recent iPhone models on Tuesday, January 15, 2019. The cases are available in black and white and cost $129. The cases are available for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. According to Apple, the Smart Battery cases are compatible with wireless charging pads, and can power an iPhone for up to 21 hours of internet use, increasing the battery life an iPhone can get on a single charge. The cases are considerably more expensive than batteries from Mophie.

Qualcomm Refused to Let Apple Use Their Modems
Chief operating officer Jeff Williams revealed Qualcomm refused to let Apple use their modems in the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. Apple shared they have been paying $7.50 per device, five times more than the desired $1.50 per device. Qualcomm refused to sell the chips because of Apple’s lawsuit from 2017. Intel is now the sole provider of modems after Qualcomm’s refusal.

Apple’s First A24 film to Reunite Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola
Apple is preparing for their upcoming streaming service that they hope will be able to compete with Netflix, Amazon, and Disney. Our Apple roundup concludes with Sofia Coppola reportedly directing Bill Murray and Rashida Jones in On the Rocks. The new film from the Lost in Translation director is the first of an exclusive deal Apple and A24 made late last year to produce a slate of films. Projects from Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams, Reese Witherspoon, and Oprah Winfrey are also in the works and are expected to launch sometime this year.
