It’s easy to fall into the same routine with Apple products. It goes something like this: Buy one. Love it and use it to death. A few months later read about the “next generation” of said device. Mull over various rumors about it. Watch the keynote. Salivate. Order one. Rinse. Repeat.
Just a month ago it was all about the new iPad. Last fall it was the iPhone 4S. What’s next? I have already read rumors about the iPod Touch receiving a much needed re-vamp. Who wouldn’t like to see that? Here is what I want to see, the next generation iPod Nano have wifi support with iTunes so I can stream some podcasts while I’m out and about. All that aside, here is what many are expecting: a new revision of the MacBook Pro.
Albeit not as high profile as the iPhone, iPod, or even the iPad, this is big news among the Apple devoted community. Schools and colleges in particular are going to be highly affected by the introduction of the newest MacBook Pro. Current rumors regarding MacBook Pro shortages are sure to trigger talk throughout the ranks. And what can we expect in this new MacBook Pro other than the typical bump in processor speed? I wouldn’t expect anything quite as huge as a radical redesign or Apple doing the unexpected and completely discontinuing its line of MacBook Pros in an effort to push the Macbook Air line. What I do expect is a slightly slimmer, thinner form factor.
If I was a prospective college student all over again and had the chance to get a brand new laptop, I’d definitely be excited.

With all of this talk about the iPad 3, any news about the iPhone 4S and iOS 5.1 seems to have been eclipsed. Let’s remember that Apple is more than likely going to announce more than just the iPad 3. This event is going to be big. We may hear something about the next iteration of the Apple TV, new Macbook Pro models, or even (gasp) the Apple TV!! Ok, maybe not the Apple TV but who knows?
Among the topics that Apple may discuss is iOS 5.1. Seeing iOS 5.1 in more detail is going to be great. There are many reasons to be excited about iOS 5.1. While iOS 5.1 may initially be available only for the iPad 3, rest assured, when its the iPhone 4S’ turn to receive the iOS 5.1 update, it will take full advantage of it. A more capable Siri? Yes please! Apple has done an amazing job updating its mobile platform with each iteration.
So before selling or throwing out that cracked or broken iPod Touch or iPhone 3G S, iResQ can repair it for you to get it ready for the new iOS. Remember, we just reduced prices on iPhone 4S repairs dramatically. iPhone 4S Screen repairs are at a record low of $99.

Well well well. Apple Apple Apple. Rumors rumors rumors. Developers developers developers. What do you have in store for us, ole mighty Apple? I guess it’s nothing new. Whenever we approach the impending release of Apple’s newest incarnation of its cellular device, people get excited. Rumors begin to surface. Technical specifications tend to leak out. Drunken software engineer’s leave iPhone prototypes on barstools. You name it. Well, just when you think you have heard it all, our very own Al Gore gets involved in the picture purportedly stating that the iPhones (yes that was plural) will be coming out next month (October). iPhones. Not just one. What does this mean!!! Oh my! Will Apple release an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S? Will Apple release only an iPhone 4S but with multiple carriers? Is the new iPhone going to be Nintendo’s next Wii Remote? What will they do!!!!!
Sorry for the exclamation. All this talk has begun to fry my brain. To be honest, no matter what Apple releases everyone that loves Apple is going to love it. I’m going to love it. And guess what? iResQ is going to love it. And love it we will. From the moment the new iPhone is released, we will be sure to offer repairs on it no matter the model, no matter the carrier. iPhone 4S repairs…no problem. iPhone 5 repairs…yep. Rest assured, we are on the case.
In the mean time, we are still offering the ever so popular iPod Touch 4 screen replacement service for only $100. Think about that. How much did your iPod Touch cost you? $229? $299? $399? By fixing your Touch instead of buying a new one, you are going to save yourself AT LEAST $100. This is no chump change.
Well, the week is almost over and I am looking forward to the weekend. My home at Lee’s Summit is hosting its annual Oktoberfest and I am stoked.
