They're still not buying it, though.
There have been countless developments in Apple vs the FBI but they're going to remain uncounted because One More Thing is declaring a week off from all that.

They're all sick of it. So instead of focusing on this week, One More Thing zooms back and forth across time.
Apple continues to focus its consumer desktop efforts around all-in-one iMac designs, for better or worse, with its most recent upgrade efforts centered on bringing Retina displays to them.

Apple's massive run of success over the past decade has been built on the success of its iOS mobile devices, and we've already taken an in-depth look at what we expect to see from Apple in that space in 2016.
