The Morning After: Tuesday, September 12th 2017
Hey, good morning!
It’s finally here. Today the rumors come to an end (temporarily) as we find out more about what Apple is going to deliver. Check in with our liveblog at 1 PM ET for all of the details as they’re revealed, and of course we’ll have more in-depth information available later.
Just a few more leaks.Apple TV 4K will have as much power as the iPad Pro
Sure, we have plenty of rumors about the new iPhone and iOS, but ahead of the launch event, you may want to know what’s in store for the Apple TV. Developer Steven Troughton-Smith looked through the leaked software and deduced that the new hardware’s name is Apple TV 4K, and it will be powered by an A10X Fusion CPU, just like the latest iPad Pros. That should give it enough power to play 4K video at up to 60FPS, and make it ready for HDR 10 or Dolby Vision-encoded flicks.
BYO emulator.Modders release ‘Super Mario 64 Online’
Built by modders Kaze Emanuar, Melonspeedruns and Marshivolt, Super Mario 64 Online is a tool that modifies a running version of the game so you and your friends can play together. It’s likely that Nintendo will shut this down soon, so go ahead and play while you can, or just check out the video demo to find out what Super Mario 64 would be like with online multiplayer.
Formula 1 for two.AMG Project One Concept car is a hybrid with over 1,000 horsepower
This hypercar combines a turbocharged 1.6-liter V6 with four electric motors to create a 1,000+ horsepower monster. Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show, it pulls a lot of tech and expertise from the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Formula 1 team, potentially allowing drivers to enjoy something like Lewis Hamilton’s work vehicle in a two-seat road car.
A decade’s worth of design, features and more.
The iPhone 10 years in

Xiaomi’s Mi MIX 2 comes with a stunning ceramic unibody
Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is back with another near-bezel-less display: the Mi MIX 2. It boasts high-end specs with a Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage. Unfortunately, this device isn’t coming to the US, but if you want something even rarer than an OLED iPhone, then this could be a device worth the chase.
