🦕 Brace yourself for dino week on Apple TV+ 🦖

The Weekender
Doesn’t everybody love dinosaurs?
Apple TV+ hopes so – it’s unleashing the beasts Monday in a five-part limited series called Prehistoric Planet. New episodes will appear daily, pairing flashy CGI and beautiful nature photography to provide a fascinating look at how these ancient creatures lived.
We’ve got a Prehistoric Planet review to whet your appetite.
Also in The Weekender:
  • Loads of Apple rumors and leaks arrived this week, giving us a peek at future iPhones, Apple Watches and even that long-rumored AR/VR headset.
  • A timely primer on how to make Twitter fun again.
  • A handful of hot deals on software and Apple accessories that will end soon.
  • A look at another new Apple TV+ show, Now and Then, which our reviewer calls “a noirish riff on The Big Chill and Stephen King’s It.”
Enjoy your weekend … and brace yourself for next week’s dino invasion!
