Interest in NBA Streaming Rights
According to MacRumors, Apple claims to be interested in purchasing an NBA streaming service. Apple is one of several companies with interest, along with Amazon and NBC Sports, with NBCUniversal showing a particular interest in repurchasing NBA games. To entice more people to subscribe to the Apple TV+ streaming service, Apple has been pursuing sports content.
Prior to Disney and Turner Sports purchasing the NBA rights more than 20 years ago, NBC had held those rights. The NBA may ultimately decide to renew its agreement with Disney and Turner Sports, but Apple still has a chance to submit a bid at this time.

Apple won’t release the iMac with the M3 chip until it is officially announced. Apple’s M3 chip is anticipated to be produced using the most recent 3nm process from TSMC, offering improved performance and power usage.
Only 50% of Indian-made iPhone Casings are up to Apple’s Quality Standards
According to MacRumors, Apple is having trouble expanding its manufacturing facilities in India due to low component yields and sluggish development. It appears that the corporation is having a very difficult time increasing output in the nation. Only one out of every two components leaving the production line at a factory in Hosur managed by Apple supplier Tata that makes iPhone shells “is in acceptable enough form.”
Apple appears to be concentrating on a long-term strategy to increase the nation’s manufacturing capacity. To help train locals and set up production facilities, the business has sent product designers and engineers from California and China to factories in southern India. Apple is still working on its long-term strategy to diversify its worldwide supply chain.
