Earlier this week, it was revealed that Apple had quietly increased the download limit from 150MB to 200MB for app downloads made over a cellular internet connection. We lamented at that time that a 50MB increase wasn’t exactly groundbreaking, but it turns out that it was merely an appetizer for what was to come.
Many had thought that it was a bit of a waste that Apple had stopped making its Thunderbolt 3 displays. This is because these displays were great in terms of their color, but also in its design where it seems to fit Apple’s aesthetics perfectly. The good news is that it looks like Apple could be back in the display business.
From a design standpoint, it’s not that hard to see why Apple went with what they did for the previous-gen Mac Pro. The company was trying to aim for a smaller footprint, but it turns out that as powerful as those computers were, it lost the modularity and upgradability of the Mac Pro of the old.
One of the joys of attending an event live in-person is that you get to share in the excitement and energy with everyone else in attendance. However, sometimes this isn’t always possible due to financial or logistical constraints, but thankfully technology these days has allowed us to enjoy these live events from the comfort of our own home.
iTunes has become rather synonymous with Apple. The app was used to do all sorts of things, such as buy music, videos, books, sync up with iOS devices, and more. Over time, the app has gotten very bloated due to all these additional features, which is why it doesn’t come as a surprise to learn that Apple could be planning on retiring it for good.
Are you excited to see what Apple has in store for its Mac and iOS devices? If you are, then you’ll be pleased to learn that the company is gearing up for its upcoming WWDC 2019 event. They have started to send out invites to the event which was previously confirmed to take place on the 3rd of June, 2019.
Typically every year Apple hosts WWDC where they reveal new software changes that will be coming to iOS and macOS. This year’s WWDC dates have yet to be confirmed, but it seems that we might have a rough idea of when it could be kicking off, thanks to the folks at MacRumors who uncovered potential dates.
Sometimes companies and restaurants and venues will embed a map onto their website to let customers know where they are and how to get there. For the most part the maps that we would see on websites are Google Maps, with the occasional Bing Maps thrown in, but now it looks like we might start seeing Apple Maps as well.
It is clear that Apple envisions a future in which the Apple Watch can go above and beyond what fitness trackers can do, which is why it wasn’t surprising when we heard that Apple could be working on a glucose tracker for the wearable. However while we might be years away from such features, in the near future the Apple Watch could be getting better detection skills.
If there is one design flaw of the iPhone X, is that the hardware buttons are positioned in such a way that it is easy to accidentally take a screenshot when you reach for your phone. Given how many times we reach for our phone on a daily basis, it’s not surprising that there are more than a few iPhone X users who have had to delete several unnecessary screenshots […]
For a while many have wondered if Apple would eventually merge its operating systems together, where they would bring iOS and macOS into a single unified platform. If you’re wondering when that will happen, it seems not anytime soon according to Apple’s announcement at WWDC 2018.
When it comes to users adopting the latest version of iOS, Apple has never really had much of a problem. However it seems that Apple could be pushing for users to adopt updates faster, at least according to the beta of the recently announced iOS 12 in which it suggests that automatic system updates could be one the new features.
Given Apple’s penchant for creating a walled garden ecosystem, it’s not surprising that the company would choose to use Apple Maps in CarPlay. It makes a lot of sense and also encourages the adoption of the app. However the good news is that in an announcement made at WWDC, Apple will no longer force Apple Maps onto users.
At WWDC 2018 today, Apple officially announced the next major update that would be coming to the Apple Watch in the form of watchOS 5. As expected the update will focus a lot on new fitness related features and improvements, but there will also be some new features added that will be communications-based.
If you’re a Mac user, you might be interested to learn that at WWDC 2018, Apple has officially announced the next major update to the macOS platform in the form of macOS Mojave. This will be the latest update to Mac computers which will be expected to officially be released in the later part of the year during the fall.
When Apple launched iOS 11 last year, they also introduced a redesigned App Store that would help make apps more discoverable and also make the store feel less messy. However Apple did not do anything for macOS and the Mac App Store, but just a couple of weeks ago we heard that might change in the next macOS update.
Ahead of WWDC 2018, it was rumored that Apple could be introducing digital wellness features in iOS 12. For those wondering, it turns out that the rumors were right because Apple has since introduced features in iOS 12 that is designed to help reduce the amount of time we spend on our phones.
What’s New In iOS 12?Editor's Pick
One of the rumors leading up to WWDC 2018 is that instead of introducing visual overhauls and changes and a ton of brand new features to the iOS platform, Apple would instead choose to focus on improving the overall quality of iOS. This is due to the numerous bugs and problems that arose in iOS 11 which many users weren’t too thrilled about, leading some to question Apple’s attention to […]
It has been about a year since Apple refreshed the MacBook Pro, which means that it is about time that Apple refreshes the lineup. In fact last month it was reported that shipping times for some MacBook Pros were slipping, suggesting that Apple is slowing down production of existing models to make way for the newer ones.
Dark mode is a feature that we’re starting to see more developers include in their apps. It makes sense because dark mode makes it easier for users to use the app in low light settings without blinding themselves. However this is usually dependent on the app and the developer, which is why sometimes an overarching dark mode on an OS level is preferred.
