Apple releases Apple Watch Series 3 with Cellular Capabilities

Basically, yes. Since Apple is using the “eSIM” technology and it shares the same number as the iPhone, the carriers have to support the technology in the first place. It sounds like as a minimum they’ll need to support VoLTE, but there may be other requirements as well, and not every carrier is even on board yet.
It also appears that most carriers will be charging an additional fee for the service — $5 to $10 by the looks of it. The good news, however, is that other than subscribing to whatever service your carrier requires, the actual set up and provisioning is done entirely from the iPhone.

Apple releases Apple Watch Series 3 with Cellular Capabilities

Does the LTE Apple watch require any new arraignments with one’s cellular provider?

Apple unveils iPhone X with Face ID

I’m fairly certain that playback will avoid that entire area, so you’ll still have a rectangle.
Keep in mind that the iPhone X has a much taller/wider aspect ratio than previous iPhone models, so you’re not really losing anything here either. The resolution is 2436 x 1125 which translates to 2.17:1. Since most video content is 16:9 (1.78:1), that means that the loss of that little bit of the screen edge when watching in landscape mode is going to be pretty inconsequential.

Apple unveils iPhone X with Face ID

Missing the point. I am not talking of the status areas, left and right of the “controls” area. I am speaking of the controls area (the dark area) impairing on my “viewing” pleasure.

Apple releases iTunes 12.7, ditching App Store and adding iOS 11 support, new social features

I can confirm it’s totally safe to delete the “mobile applications” folder (which held all the iOS apps) from your computer.  But I recommend copying it to an external drive first in case you ever need to reinstall an app that’s no longer available on the app store that your device accesses directly.
I’m happy that desktop iTunes removed iOS app management.  It was mostly redundant Over the years, I’ve accumulated 75GB worth of iOS apps in the “mobile applications” folder.  I’ve now reclaimed that space on my Macbook Pro’s SSD.

Apple releases iTunes 12.7, ditching App Store and adding iOS 11 support, new social features

You’re welcome! I only know because some enterprising user on reddit posted a link to the Apple tech article that explained this. I was just a liiiiiitle bit annoyed till I saw that. I have a ton of custom ringtones and alerts on my iPhone, and was NOT enthused at the prospect of losing them all…

Apple releases iTunes 12.7, ditching App Store and adding iOS 11 support, new social features

To clarify, you CAN still use iTunes to put these things on your iPhone. Instead of using iTunes directly by checking the ones you want to add, you drag them onto your phone in iTunes from the Finder or from Windows Explorer.
This doesn’t kill custom ringtones or the ability to put archived apps back on your iPhone, but it does kill your ability to download ringtones or apps directly to your computer.

Apple to expand 'TV' app to seven additional countries, add Live Sports

Do these other broadcasters have tvOS apps? The thing with Apple’s TV app is that it only really ties into those companies that already have a presence on the tvOS App Store to begin with, so if the broadcasters aren’t already on the Apple TV with their own apps, they’re not going to be supported.

My5 is on the screen grab above, which is Channel 5’s online presence. Disappointing to not see ITV and 4 though. Looks like I’ll be using my youview box for a while longer.

That’s the status bar area. Most devs know to avoid it.

Apple unveils iPhone X with Face ID

Does it mean that if I am watching a movie (or any other video type) on the iPhone X, I will not have a well designed rectangle but will lose part of the screen (left or right) to the dark area hiding the face id controls? if true what a bummer!

New details emerge on 'iPhone 8' design, removal of Home Button

As an “old” Mac and iPhone user, I’m not about to invest in the iPhone 8 with all these new features…iPhone 8S or iPhone 9 will be safe enough to count on these advanced features.

Apple and Hollywood still discussing plans for early movie rentals

Actually, they’re talking about $30 – $50 per rental, based on the idea that the movies would still be in the theatres.

Ouch…is that $30-$50/month? $30 is the top end, IMHO. $50 is way too much to justify the cord cutting, especially for mostly movie-only programming, regardless of how soon the movies are being released.

I am guessing this watch will eventually power Apples vision of the AR glasses they are working on.

Apple suppliers ramping up to mass production of all 3 new iPhones

Rumor has it there was an accident at the Assembly plant which mixed the two colors, Gold and Rose Gold paints together…resulting in the new Copper-Color for the iPhones.  Hey… it’s a slow news-day. ;)

Plex expands Live TV support, time shifting to Apple TV

One current limited alternative on the tvOS platform, but without DVR recording, is the Channels app. We’ve used it with our OTA antenna and HDHomeRun tuner for over a year to great satisfaction. It gives full pause, forward, rewind to every live channel of over an hour of HD programming. The biggest drawback is that you can’t record or store the show…once you switch channels or apps, then the stored data is gone. Still, it’s quite a benefit to pause shows for phone calls, dinner, breaks, or rewind a scene.
