45: Apple is DOOMED! iPhone XS, Watch Series 4 LEAKED

This week something cool is about to drop… and it’s not the theme tune to Fragil Rock. It’s that time for Apple’s special event - 2018. The invitations are out, but so are the rumours. This year also comes with a whole bunch of leaks (whoooo let the dogs out). So Jonathan chats to Jake via some crappy Skype phone sound (apologies) and go over the pre-event rumours and leaks, as they surface.

We explore the 3 different iPhone models, possible iPad and iWatch improvements and what it means for this ‘Tick-Tock’ tock year. We also look at the flaws in Apples yearly improvements but the desire that captivates all Apple users to buy every year.

Oh and some Yodelling…
