Apple’s Medical Device; iPhone Xs Wrap Up; Presale; A Scary Hack

Home Again. This is your jet-lagged edition of LanceList. After a day in front of the Apple product firehose, I redeyed my way back home just so I could deliver this newsletter to you. Let’s dive back into what’s cooking in the world of tech (and other stuff I care about).

The real story. Sure, Apple unveiled three(!) new iPhones yesterday – the 5.8-in. iPhone Xs, the 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max, and the 6.1-inch iPhone Xr (pronounced “10s,” “10s Max,” and “10r”) – but the real stunner was what may be the world’s first wearable EKG device: the Apple Watch Series 4. The app to support the heart rhythm measurement system isn’t live yet, but I’ve seen it working and it is interesting and very, very important.

I touched the iPhone Xs. I know, I know, but what about those phones? In this video I play with the iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and Xr (and, yes, the Apple Watch Series 4), and do it all from inside the incredible Steve Jobs Theater space.

On sale. Since the big product launch event, Apple hasn’t slowed down. It started delivering the final iOS 12 to iPhone owners (read more about the update here and here) and it opened pre-orders for all its new phones. Can you guess which model is already selling out?

Other than Apple. Yes, there’s news outside of Cupertino, and not all of it good. Wired reports on a 10-year-old hack that can open virtually all computers up to malicious code that can even crack encryption. A lot of consumers might say, “Meh, I use my tablet or phone,” but businesses that rely on lots and lots of PCS better listen up.
