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

Do you expect the Sept. 9 event to hold more than just new iPhones? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Friday Highlights: Politico Magazine looks at how Tim Cook is quietly taking on Washington while Steve Jobs "famously disdained D.C."; September 9 event to feature iPhones, as expected, but will the Apple TV be the surprise announcement, or perhaps the Apple Car? Inquiring minds want to know—reports in our General Interest and Op/Ed sections; to the surprise of everyone, including Apple, Ian Rogers, Beats 1 and Apple Music director, leaves Apple; the U.S. Department of Defense announces partnering with Apple, Lockheed Martin, others for flexible hybrid electronics; iPod now featured at back of Apple Stores; Michael Fassbender answers critics of his portrayal of Steve Jobs; looks like iPhone 6s will continue the unpopular trend of a 16GB starting point; Samuel Gibbs at The Guardian thinks iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have work to do in order to keep up with the competition; Macworld looks behind the curtain of content blockers on iOS 9.
