TUESDAY BLOWOUT: Every NEW or RENEWING paid subscriber receives 2 YEARS FREE.

That Apple may be planning to extend major iPhone model releases to a 3-year cycle is fine by you, or not? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Tuesday Highlights: Nikkei reporting Apple will push out iPhone product cycle to three years between major upgrades "largely due to smartphone functions having little room left for major enhancements"; hope remains for Apple to receive waiver in India allowing company to open retail stores; developers more excited for Apple TV than Apple Watch?; ZDNet pits Win 10 against El Capitan in an upgrade race; here are 6 helpful tips for Photos; a new drone flyover of Apple's spaceship campus shows construction progress; Eddy Cue, die-hard Warrior's fan (NBA); 2017 iPhone said to feature new taptic engine allowing for more complex vibrations, will also feature 32GB base RAM—more in our Hardware/Software section; accessory maker in China reveals a prototype lightning dongle to plug in headphones; Slate reviews "design classic" iPhone SE, and at Newsweek, Winston Ross looks back over his year of owning an Apple Watch.

Today's MacUpdate Promo offers 50% savings on MyBrushes for just $14.99. "MyBrushes gives you unlimited freedom to draw and paint on an infinite canvas. The artist can focus on the art instead of the software. It now supports OS X 10.11 El Capitan."

  • "Apple to extend iPhone's product cycle: Apple will likely take three years between full-model changes of its iPhone devices, a year longer than the current cycle. In a typical two-year term, fall 2016 was supposed to see a major upgrade. But the changes on the model to be launched this autumn will be minor, such as improved camera quality. The move is largely due to smartphone functions having little room left for major enhancements. A slowing market is another factor."  Nikkei 7:12 AM
