The rumor is that AirPower was cancelled to constant overheating issues. I would rather it be cancelled than burn down my house!
I think the Apple Card is innovative as far as credit cards go: no number printed on the card, instant activation by holding it near your phone, etc. Plus no penalty rates and fees, and no tracking or selling data to 3rd parties (something other credit cards thrive on).
I would agree that News+ and TV+ aren't as innovative as I would have hoped. You can get digital magazines for free through many local libraries (via RB Digital/Zinio) and there are already TV streaming services (Sling, YouTube TV, etc).
