Good morning - or afternoon, depending on where in the world you are. It's so nearly iPhone 14 launch day (which is September 7, if you've managed to forget and are desperately pawing at the walls hoping to guess when it's coming).

The thing is... there's a lot happening. The iPhone 14 will be the star, probably backed up by the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Then there's the Apple Watch 8, the Watch 8 Pro... and maybe even the AirPods Pro 2 as well.

In short, there's a bumper amount of stuff happening, and if you're just wondering whether the new iPhone is going to be the one for you, then that's what we're (well, I'm) here for today: telling you the key leaks that you should be thinking about, and welcoming any thoughts you might have on Twitter - catch me on @Superbeav and I'll add your thoughts to the discussion.

Right, let's get to it. What's the number one thing you're interested in with the new iPhone 14?

Are you angry about the battery life? The sharp sides too steep? Are you hoping for bigger screens or less notch? We've spent the last 15 goshdarn months looking at rumors regarding this muthaflippin' phone, and we've got a pretty good idea of what's going to be coming. 

But, as I said in the intro - this is all about you. Tweet me any questions and I'll answer them, based on TechRadar's analysis, right here and now.

A list of rumored iPhone 14 specs on wrinkled paper

OK - I've got a hot-off-the-press 'leak' to talk you through from TimesNowNews in India... and I'll warn you, there are many things here that are making me question how legit this is.

However, the listing - which doesn't have a source other than applepriceleak (and it's not clear which forum that user name is from) - does touch on a lot of things that we're expecting, so it's an excellent kicking off point.

The first thing you'll notice there is that the iPhone 14 Plus is being mentioned over the iPhone 14 Max... that's the strong rumor at the moment, that Apple will split the naming to avoid confusing things between this larger phone and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

But that's not what I'm confused about...

The thing that's really getting to me about that 'leaked' listing is that it shows the battery sizes. If this truly was a leak from Apple itself - perhaps one that was sent out as embargoed marketing material - then it wouldn't have that info on.

Apple will obviously collaborate with key third-party vendors on things like cases and such, ahead of launch. But it would never release the iPhone 14 battery size as it wouldn't make a difference - so I feel like this document is an aggregation of the leaks published online at the moment.

That said, the battery sizes are dovetailing with what we're expecting: the iPhone 14 Pro to have a larger power unit that the 13 Pro, adding in an extra 200mAh, but the iPhone 14 Pro Max to stick with something similar to the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

And while, again, we shouldn't read this leak as gospel, I really do hope that the iPhone 14 Plus does match the battery size of the iPhone 14 Pro Max - that's a phone that will be cheaper but will still have the gargantuan longevity that appeared with the new iPhone 13 range last year.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
