It was a pretty low key week in Apple News, as Google I/O dominated the news cycle. Ahead of the conference, Google CEO Larry Page had a public discussion about his vocal cord paralysis. This was CEO interview week, as Tim Cook had a discussion with Politico discussing Apple’s US manufacturing plans. There was a little bit of noise when Apple booted the “Bang With Friends” app from the store. On the rumor front we had reports that the iPhone 5S was going to feature a Sapphire fingerprint reading home button, and rumors about a possible new Macbook Air at WWDC surfaced on reports of dwindling stock.
