Friday Highlights: The escalating tariff war between the US and China puts Apple Watch (original), Fitbits, Sonos, squarely in the crosshairs of a 10% tariff, resulting in US price increases; might autonomous vehicles be Apple's Next Big Thing?; report from BGR India that unless Apple installs "a pesky call app soon", iPhones may cease working on networks; attention Apple! Ben Lovejoy thinks your meager-but-free 5GB of iCloud storage has become an embarrassment and needs to change; and Dan Moren calls on Apple to break tradition and let us set our own preferred apps instead of being locked in to company choices; Tyson's Corner Apple Store, first one ever, set to undergo facelift; Samsung unleashes three more videos mocking dongles, lack of fast charging accessories included with iPhones; MacBook Pro i9 Throttlegate also affects some Dell XPS systems, but are reports overblown?
