Apple may have left Mac users wondering where their update was after iOS 12.2 arrived, but it didn't leave them waiting for long. The company has released macOS Mojave 10.14.4, where the centerpiece is undoubtedly support for Apple News+ subscriptio...
Apple might face some stiff opposition in its bid to launch a subscription news service this spring. Wall Street Journaltipsters claim publishers like the New York Times and Washington Post are objecting to terms that would have Apple take "about half" of the revenue from the service, dividing the rest among publishers based on the amount of time people spend reading articles. That's a considerably higher cut than the 30 percent Apple takes during the first year of a subscription, let alone the 15 percent it takes later on.
It happens to the best of us. You’re going about your day, tapping through your smartphone while navigating around your little slice of the world. Before you know it, you realize that you’ve accidentally done something on your device you didn’t mean to do—at least, that’s the scenario I’m envisioning for this week’s…
Gavin McInnes and his gang of Proud Boys, newly minted stars of the Alt-Right, took their first steps back toward irrelevancy this week when they got themselves banned from Facebook. At the same time, we've had to say goodbye to a pair of space-based telescopes (Kepler and Dawn), as they reached the end of their operational lifespans; Roscosmos blamed the recent Soyuz launch failure on a bent sensor pin and Apple announced that it would no longer report the sales numbers for the stars of its product lineup -- iPhones, iPads and Macs -- after it was reported that smartphone sales slumped six percent globally this year.
It’s getting even more expensive to use Apple products.
At Tuesday’s Apple event in Brooklyn, the Cupertino-based tech giant unveiled the next generation of the iPad Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Mini. Each updated device is more powerful than ever, with multiple add-on options that further enhance performance. Of course, those higher-end features come at a price. And Apple’s base pricing for the entry-level version of each of its products is rising, too.
Take the . This generation of Apple’s flagship tablet is faster, thinner, and has more screen space than ever. The most affordable model, the new 11-inch iPad Pro, starts at $799. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro comes in at $999. Not bad for tablets that Apple puts up against competitors’ full-fledged laptops. But if you take a look at the base pricing of the previous Continue reading "Apple is slowly squeezing even more out of customers"
In the words of three of our greatest philosophers, “no sleep ’til Brooklyn.” That goes double for all of you West Coasters, because today’s Apple event is kicking off bright and early at 10AM ET/7AM PT. It’s been just over a month since the last big Apple hardware event, but it seems the company still has plenty to announce ahead of the holidays.
Expect today’s big event at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Howard Gilman Opera House to focus primarily on all things iPad and Mac. Here’s a quick breakdown of all of the things we expect to see. Of course, this being an Apple event, there’s sure to be plenty of surprises as well. As ever, we’ll be on-site, bringing you the news as it breaks.
We’ll also be liveblogging the event right here on this very page. Stay tuned to this spot to see everything Apple has up its
New iPads and smart accessories, alongside a much needed Mac refresh, are likely en route. The spectacle is kicking off earlier than normal at 10 a.m. ET / 7 a.m. PT at the Brooklyn Academy of Music this year. The event will be streamed, so no worries if you didn't score an invite.
Certainly, there have been all sorts of leaks and rumors about the new products Apple is poised to unveil at its Oct. 30 event, which begins at 10 a.m. Eastern Time. But what took many by surprise when the invitations hit reporters' inboxes was the choice of venue: Instead of a location at its Cupertino, California, headquarters or somewhere in the Bay Area, Apple chose the Howard Gilman Opera House at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City.
That seems apt, since what Apple will likely unveil is of great interest to creative professionals: new iPad Pros and Mac hardware. Specifically, two new iPad Pro models (small and large) with edge-to-edge displays and a new Apple Pencil. On the Mac side, the iMac line is due for a refresh, and there may also be a true successor for the MacBook Continue reading "Apple’s Oct. 30 iPad and Mac event: live blog"
Fresh from its launch of no less than threenew iPhones and a new Apple Watch, the tech giant is poised to reveal what’s next for its other major products: the iPad and the Mac.
Apple sent out invitations to the press for an event on Oct. 30. Surprisingly, the Cupertino, California-based company is holding the event on the East Coast, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City.
Does the choice of venue have any special meaning? Probably, although Apple probably won’t say exactly what that is until the keynote gets underway at 10 a.m. ET that morning. But it seems fairly safe to speculate that the news will emphasize the creative tools that Apple’s Macs and iPads are known for. Read more...
The last time we trekked to an Apple event, the company showed off three new phones that everyone saw coming a mile away. That's not to say the XR, XS and XS Max were in any way lacking; it's just that the leaks told us a thorough story of some logical upgrades to the stuff we got the year before. You can always count on Apple to regularly release new phones, but the same can't be said of other kinds of Apple hardware.
That's what makes the company's next launch event (in Brooklyn, for whatever reason) so interesting. Once again, we have a pretty good idea of what it plans to show off, thanks to months of rumors and supply chain intrigue. This time, though, Apple seems set to deliver what some die-hard fans have wanted for years: meaningful updates to Macs that have largely gone neglected (oh, and Continue reading "What to expect from Apple’s iPad and Mac event"
Those rumors of Apple holding a second fall event were true. The company has announced plans for a special event on October 30th, and not at Apple Park -- this time, it's at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City. The teaser is cryptic apart from stating that "there's more in the making," but there are a few good ideas as to what to expect. While the stars of the show will likely be new iPad Pros that borrow the near bezel-free design of newer iPhones (the handwriting may be a clue), there are also rumors of a spiritual sequel to the MacBook Air, an overdue Mac mini update, new AirPods and more. One thing's for sure: we'll be there to give you the full scoop.
Apple's iOS 12.1 release back in September hinted at a new iPad launch before the year is out, and now new details have emerged on exactly what the device might look like. According to 9to5mac, sources familiar with the development of the new 2018 iPad Pro have revealed there will be two WiFi and two LTE models in both size options.
As exciting as threenew iPhones and a new Apple Watch with a built-in ECG may (or may not) have been for you, there were lot of updates for other Apple products that we expected to see last week, but didn’t get.
It’s that time again: time for your annual frantic search to find all of the original packaging for your older iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch. That’s the best way to sell it for the highest possible sum, after all, before you plunk down a preorder for whatever Apple’s announcing this week.
If you have a newer iPhone, it's been a pain to take payments from magstripe cards using a Square reader -- without a native headphone jack, you've had to plug in a dongle and hold it steady while you serve a customer. Isn't Square overdue for a more iPhone-friendly version? Thankfully, it's here. You now have the option of a magstripe reader with a Lightning connection instead of the usual 3.5mm plug. There's nothing new apart from the port compatibility, but the identical $10 price makes it an easy choice if you run an iPhone-centric shop.
Many device makers give you the tools to capture and edit great photos, but they seldom teach you how to make the most of those tools. Apple thinks it can -- and unlike in the past, you don't need to show up in person to develop your skills. The company has launched an over-the-phone training program that teaches you how to edit with Photos (both iOS and macOS) in a 30-minute one-on-one session with a specialist. It'll both show how to use simple adjustments like Auto Enhance as well as deeper edits like color balance and exposure. If you have Live Photos or Portrait mode pictures from your mobile devices, you'll learn how to edit those as well.
Earlier this month heavy rain caused devastating flooding throughout western and central Japan, resulting in more than 200 deaths and causing millions to evacuate. Now, Apple has announced that it will repair devices damaged in the floods for free. Any repairable iPhones, Macs, iPads, iPods, Apple Watches and Apple displays directly damaged by flooding will be fixed by the company for no charge. Accessories are not included as part of the offer. Apple expressed its sympathy to those affected by the floods and wished for speedy reconstruction.
Some Sonos speakers are finally getting support for Apple’s latest wireless streaming technology, AirPlay 2. Whether you’re want to blast your favorite Netflix movies or rock out around your house, this update lets you connect your speakers to your iOS devices. Here’s how to get started:
When it comes to product releases, Apple may be secretive but it’s also predictable. Software announcements come in the spring during WWDC (as was the case this year) and hardware typically comes in the fall. A new rumor, fueled by filings made with the Eurasian Economic Commission, has sparked some speculation of a…
Apple Maps has come a long way since the fiasco when it first launched, but there's no question that there's room for improvement. It just isn't as robust as Google Maps, which has the luxury of both a years-long head start and complete control over the mapping process. And Apple knows it. In an interview with TechCrunch, the company's Eddy Cue has revealed plans to revamp Maps using its own data set rather than the current piecemeal approach, which has relied on info from the likes of OpenStreetMap and TomTom. The new technique promises not only greater mp accuracy and detail, but faster updates that take days rather than months.
