News round-up: Apple’s revenue growth will be driven by more than new iPhones (and more)

Since Steve and I can’t cover everything, we’ll frequently offer a wrap-up of news items you should check out.

The launch of new iPhone models at tomorrow’s “BY Innovation Only” Apple event isn’t going to be a massively interesting event for investors, JP Morgan suggests — as noted by AppleInsider — with “limited surprise” for the iPhone forcing most of the attention on pricing and other potential hardware launches. 

Apple has tweaked its App Store search algorithm so that fewer of its own apps appear at the top of search results, senior executives Phil Schiller, senior vice of Worldwide Marketing and the person over the App Stores, and Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, told The New York Times.

According to MacRumors, Apple will add a new coprocessor, codenamed both “Rose” and “R1,” to the A13 series chips in its upcoming iPhones set to debut tomorrow at the “By Innovation Only” event.

9to5Mac notes that one of Kentucky’s two Apple Stores is about to receive a significant upgrade. In Louisville, Apple Oxmoor is relocating to a larger space in Oxmoor Center with an outdoor entrance and a brand-new plaza.

Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman says Apple is bringing back the old-school 3D front windows at some stores following tomorrow’s media event.

One Reddit user asked about Apple adding the lyrics visualizer to the main Apple Music player. Apple Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi says it’s coming in iOS 13.1.
