Mini-review: How much faster have high-end iMacs...

Andrew Cunningham

Apple seems committed to the Mac Pro and iMac Pro for now, but the company says that its most popular desktops with pro users remains the 27-inch iMac.

Unlike phones and tablets, which can still post big performance gains from year to year, desktops age more slowly and gracefully. A typical replacement cycle in many businesses and schools is three or four years, and, as long as they don’t break, you can easily keep using them for years after that.

Podcast 563: Our iOS goes to 11

Apple confirms its working on autonomous automobiles, but is it making a car or a component? Roman and Glenn discuss Apple’s new podcast analytics, and then go through the large number of improvements scheduled for iOS 11, announced last week at WWDC. It’s going to feel like a very different system—for the better.

We recently rounded up the best MIDI keyboards for Mac and Logic Pro X (2017 edition), and now it’s time to get portable.

The Touchtype Pro is coming to the smaller iPads

Touchtype is working on the Touchtype Pro for the iPad and is conducting a crowdfunding campaign to finance it. CEO Salman Sajid says it’s the most versatile iPad Keyboard case for these reasons:

It holds the Apple Magic Keyboard. Perfect for those who want to transition to an iPad for work, but don’t want to sacrifice their typing productivity — or wrist health — to do it. The keyboard can also flip behind the iPad when not in use.

Unlike Apple’s Smart Keyboard, the keyboard holder is detachable so you can leave it behind. The cover automatically adjusts to form-fit either situation.

It not only has a place to store the Apple Pencil but also headphones or a charging cable. Most cases only have room for only the Apple Pencil.

It’s stable on your lap, allowing the iPad Pro to fulfill its destiny as a worthy laptop replacement.

The Touchtype Pro will come in two versions: 1) one for just the 10....

A stroll through Apple Park reveals green landscape...

Apple Park is starting to look a lot more like a park as Apple makes rapid progress on the massive landscaping job and continues construction at the site. The images above and below give a good ground level look at the thousands of trees being planted around the main circular building on the 175-acre campus. These photos sent in by a 9to5Mac reader show how the site looked as of late last week.

While Apple announced back in February that Apple Park would be ready for employees to begin moving in by April, the site still appears to be more in construction mode and it’s unclear what Apple staff if any is actually already working at the new campus. The company is also expected to host future events at the 1000-seat Steve Jobs Theatre located at Apple Park, but chatter from construction workers is that finishing touches could go beyond the end of the year and the new iPhone unveiling...

Xbox One X: More Speed, More Muscle


Microsoft earlier this week announced the next version of its Xbox line of gaming consoles, ahead of E3 2017, now ongoing in Los Angeles. The new Xbox One X, which goes on sale Nov. 7 for $499, is slimmer than previous models and packed with power. With a 6-teraflop Scorpio engine, the One X has 40 percent faster graphics performance than its chief rival, Sony's PS4 Pro. The custom Scorpio engine in the Microsoft box burns chrome at 1172 MHz -- a 37 percent increase over its predecessor, Xbox One, and 28 percent faster than PS4 Pro.

Poor iPhone 7—we’re only halfway through its first year and it’s already totally overshadowed by whatever is coming next. After all, 2017 marks the iPhone’s 10th birthday, so Apple is reportedly gearing up to make its anniversary edition extra special.

We’ll keep track of the latest rumors and how plausible they are, and we’ll put them in one spot (this one!) so you can pop on over whenever you want to read the latest.

If you passed on the iPhone 7 to wait for the iPhone 8—or the iPhone 7s or whatever name Apple decides to use—it sounds like the next phone could be the design refresh you were waiting for. Just don’t expect the headphone jack to return.

Foxconn may build a U.S. plant in Wisconsin

Apple supplier Hon Hai Precision Industry, better known as Foxconn Technology Group, is considering building a U.S. factory in Wisconsin, according to the Associated Press. Quoting unnamed “sources,” the article says that Wisconsin officials and company execs are in discussions about the plant.

Michigan remains in the mix as a possible location due to the proximity of the automotive industry. The AP doesn’t specify whether the discussions involve Foxconn’s proposed smartphone panel plant, which would supply Apple among others, or the proposed large-format display panel plant with Sharp. Or the discussions could involve both projects.

It’s rare when Apple World Today has two major hardware reviews published on the same day, but the stars aligned and the timing was right for both a review of the fast new 27-inch iMac and the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The two devices are different in their use case: the big iMac is a powerful desktop, while the iPad Pro seems to be the future of portable computing from Apple. Both devices have two things in common — astonishingly good displays and powerful processors — that set them apart from the rest of Apple’s products.

Apple Issues $1 Billion Green Bond After Trump'...

An anonymous reader shares a report: Apple offered a $1 billion bond dedicated to financing clean energy and environmental projects on Tuesday, the first corporate green bond offered since President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris climate agreement. The offering comes over a year after Apple issued its first green bond of $1.5 billion -- the largest issued by a U.S. corporation -- as a response to the 2015 Paris agreement. Apple said its second green bond is meant to show that businesses are still committed to the goals of the 194-nation accord. "Leadership from the business community is essential to address the threat of climate change and protect our shared planet," said Lisa Jackson, Apple's vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives.

Walt Disney’s original, personal map of Disneyland...

CNN:

Disney started W.E.D. Enterprises (for Walter Elias Disney), went looking for cheap land in Southern California, and recruited artists and art directors from various studios. They began designing aspects of the park, as Walt’s brother, Roy O. Disney, lined up meetings with potential investors: banks and TV networks.
But with those pitch meetings just days away, Walt realized he had no big visual for his vision; he needed a show to go with Roy’s tell. “They had all these elements, but they didn’t have them all together in something they could present to investors,” explains Van Eaton.

So, on a Friday, Walt called Herb Ryman, a friend and former Disney artist known for working quickly, with an audacious idea: draw a huge, detailed map of the proposed park.

Fascinating story, a one-of-a-kind collectible. The map goes on the auction block June 25th, expected to fetch north of $500K.

Apple has now implemented a controversial change to the way it handles cash ‘tips’ sent to content providers through social media apps in China. It is treating them as in-app purchases, and taking a 30% cut.

Apple’s point of view makes perfect sense in the USA. It argues that a donation from a user to a content creator is no different to an in-app purchase. Indeed, in the original news piece, many commenters took issue with the use of the word ‘donation,’ saying that this is suggestive of a contribution to a charitable cause rather than to an individual.

But it is this which highlights the cultural gulf between the two countries …

What Apple thought the iPhone might look like in 1995

The Atlantic:

Apple has always been fond of dreaming up hardware and software from a not-too-distant future, and there are glimmers of the iPhone in Apple’s history since long before the rumors about the device were taken seriously in the early 2000s. More than a decade before the smartphone was unveiled, Apple shared with the computing magazine Macworld a semi-outlandish design for a videophone-PDA that could exchange data. (Smartphones eventually made the PDA, or personal digital assistant, obsolete.)

The prototype for the device, published in the May 1995 issue of the magazine, is something of a missing link between the Newton and the iPhone—though still more parts the former than the latter.

Interesting look back. Be sure to take a look at the pictures.

The internal layout of the 9.7″ Pro was strikingly similar to the standard iPad—while the 12.9″ Pro had a completely new internal layout […] But it looks like Apple has moved from iPad Pro experimentation to standardization.

The gang at iFixit — who tear apart tech items and look at their innards so you don’t have to — has conducted a teardown of Apple’s new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. They find that an open-faced 10.5-inch iPad Pro is essentially a scaled-down, streamlined version of its 12.9″ predecessor.

“Whether this is a good thing remains to be seen. One move we’re particularly happy with is the retention of the 12.9" Pro’s danger-free display cable placement,” says the iFixIt’ers. “ No improvement on the battery front, though: it’s pinned under the logic board, firmly adhered in place, and doesn’t inherit the 12.9″ iPad Pro’s handy removal tabs. Maybe after standardization comes logic.”

Many of us have been using the dev builds of iOS 11 and MacOS High Sierra this week. I wanted to share some thoughts on what I think are some of the important advances.

And:

APFS is an entirely new file system enabling such features as clones, snapshots, encryption, 64-bit limits on file counts and sizes, crash protection, crazy performance for large file operations, and more.

And:

I’ve lived through all the Apple migrations and all the DOS/Windows migrations and not only is this among the most feature-rich releases, it is actually running right now on my Mac (and iPhone) after an in-place upgrade. I seriously sat there watching the install process thinking “this is going to take like a day to finish and it will probably fail and roll back in the middle or something”. After about 30 minutes the whole thing was complete. The amount of amazing engineering that went into both the creation and deployment of APFS is mind-...

Apple, custom chips, AR and machine learning

Jean-Louis Gassée, Monday Note:

When Apple introduced its 64-bit A7 processor in September, 2013, they caught the industry by surprise. According to an ex-Intel gent who’s now at a long-established Sand Hill Road venture firm, the competitive analysis group at the imperial x86 maker had no idea Apple was cooking a 64-bit chip.

And:

The industry came to accept the idea Apple has one of the best, if not the best, silicon design teams; the company just hired Esin Terzioglu, who oversaw the engineering organization of Qualcomm’s core communications chips business. By moving its smartphones and tablets — hardware and software together — into the 64-bit world, Apple built a moat that’s as dominant as Google’s superior Search, as unassailable as the aging Wintel dominion once was.

Interestingly, yesterday we learned that Google...

Apple CEO Tim Cooks confirms company’s efforts...

Following years of Apple being characteristically tight-lipped as to whether it’s been working on an autonomous car project, CEO Tim Cook is finally ready to admit to the world that yes, Apple is working on a self-driving car system.

In an interview with Bloomberg Television following the WWDC keynote, Cook described the autonomous driving system as “a core technology that we view as very important,” but stopped well short of saying Apple was actually building its own car. “We’ll see where it takes us,” he said.

The project, which is said to have been dubbed “Project Titan”, shows that Apple seems to be serious about its effort in this field.

Apple’s car endeavors have been well documented by the rumor mill, with Bloomberg reporting last year that the company cut hundreds of jobs and scaled back its ambitions. At the time, the publication said “hundreds of members of the car team” had been let go or reassigned to other areas of the company, leaving the...

You can now snag Apple’s new iPad Pro models in an Apple Store retail location near you.

The new 2017 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models have gone live and customers can check stock at local Apple Stores.

Apple began accepting iPad Pro orders just after the WWDC keynote event, and the first iPad Pro models began shipping out over the weekend with most offering June 13 delivery dates.

The updated 10.5-inch iPad Pro replaces its 9.7-inch counterpart and offers a larger display with 40 percent smaller side bezels and a slightly larger and heavier body. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the same size as the previous-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Both models feature Apple’s new ProMotion display technology, which boasts a refresh rate of up to 120Hz for more fluid scrolling, improved responsiveness, and smoother motion. The tablets also feature a much more powerful A10X Fusion chips with 30 percent faster CPU performance and 40 percent faster GPU...

New iMac is the best all-in-one yet — and the best...

Oh, iMac, I’ve missed you. I thought I could replace you with a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and 27-inch LG Ultrafine display. Actually, I did for seven months, but the entire experience just wasn’t as smooth. Plus, the Apple all-in-one’s display is so much more elegant than LG’s monitor.

The recent rev of the iMac with 5K Retina display is the company’s finest Mac ever. Use it and you may never be able to use any other computer again thanks to the spacious, gorgeous screen. Yes, I say this with every version upgrade of my favorite Mac — but it’s true.

The latest incarnation of Apple's all-in-one is, hands-down, the world's best desktop. Its performance — up to 50% faster than its predecessor — is beefy enough for all but the most demanding “power users.”

I have the high end model that...

Apple patent hints at augmented reality features in...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,679,414) for “federated mobile device positioning” that hints at augmented reality (AR) features for upcoming iPhones. It’s for a user interface that lets you calibrate the position of a 3D model with a real-world environment represented by that model. 

Using a device's sensor suite, the device's location and orientation is determined. A video image of the device's environment is displayed on the device's display. The device overlays a representation of an object from a virtual reality model on the video image. The position of the overlaid representation is determined based on the device's location and orientation. In response to user input, the device adjusts a position of the overlaid representation relative to the video image.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that some applications are being developed for mobile devices that allow folks to view an augmented reality or "enhanced reality" view of their real, physical...

How to change the default printer in macOS Sierra

In macOS Sierra, there’s a default printer. It’s the one selected when the Print dialog opens. However, it’s easy to change the default printer — or change a printer’s name.

To change your default printer

  • Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Printers & Scanners.
  • Click the “Default printer” pop-up menu, then choose an option.
  • If you want the same printer to always be the default printer, choose that printer. The default printer doesn’t change even after you print to a different printer.

If you want the default printer to be the one you printed to last, choose Last Printer Used. Your Mac remembers the printer you used last at your current network location. For example, the printer you used last might change depending on whether you’re at home or at work.

To quickly select a default printer, Control-click a printer in the Printers list of the Printers & Scanners pane, then choose “Set default printer”...

Why QR codes are important to iOS 11 and China

Why on earth would you want to use your iPhone’s camera to scan a two-dimensional block-and-dot code? How could this possibly have a benefit worth the trouble? Why would Apple have any interest in building this in as an automatic feature within its Camera app?

Ask folks in China—and Japan, where advertisers, handset makers, and cell carriers pioneered 2D codes over 15 years ago. Apple says its listening to the Chinese market in adding 2D code scanning, but the benefits will be there for users worldwide.

Apple’s addition to iOS 11 will let you open URLs, add contacts, and even join Wi-Fi networks with just the Camera app plus a tap to confirm. While it’s common to ridicule QR codes, that was because of pure inconvenience. With ease, will usage grow?

iPad Pro Review Roundup

Federico Viticci, MacStories, “The 10.5-inch iPad Pro: Future-Proof”:

A good way to think about the iPad’s new display with ProMotion
is not the difference between low-res and Retina screens, but
the jump from 30fps to 60fps. You see more of every animation.
Text is more legible when you scroll and doesn’t judder. It’s
hard to explain and it has to be seen and experienced to be
fully understood. Every scroll, page transition, and app launch
animation on the 10.5″ iPad Pro is absurdly smooth to the point
of feeling unrealistic at first — hence the common reaction
that something doesn’t quite compute. But as you spend some time
with the new iPad and start using it on a daily basis, its
display becomes normal and you wish that other Apple displays
were the same.

I’m not even a week into my tests with the 10.5″ iPad...

Play Store Downloads Show Google Pixel Sales Limited...

While Google has yet to release official sales numbers for its flagship Google Pixel smartphone, a Play Store app may shed some light on roughly how many units are in circulation. The Pixel Launcher, which is installed by default on the Pixel and Pixel XL, just crossed into the "1,000,000-5,000,000" install tier, leading us to assume that Google has finally sold 1,000,000 Google Pixel units. Ars Technica notes that "the Pixel is seen as Google's answer to the iPhone, but considering Apple sells 40 to 50 million iPhones in a quarter, Google has some catching up to do." From the report: This calculation is complicated by the fact that Google Play doesn't show exact install numbers; it shows installs in "tiers" like "100,000-500,000." So most of the time, we won't have an exact Pixel sales number -- except when the Pixel Launcher crosses from one download tier to another. So guess what just happened? The Pixel Launcher just crossed into the "1,000,000-5,000,000" install tier (you can...

Apple Mac Computers Are Being Targeted By Ransomware...

If you are a Mac user, you should be aware of new variants of malware that have been created specifically to target Apple computers; one is ransomware and the other is spyware. "The two programs were uncovered by the security firms Fortinet and AlienVault, which found a portal on the Tor 'dark web' network that acted as a shopfront for both," reports BBC. "In a blog post, Fortinet said the site claimed that the creators behind it were professional software engineers with 'extensive experience' of creating working code." From the report: Those wishing to use either of the programs had been urged to get in touch and provide details of how they wanted the malware to be set up. The malware's creators had said that payments made by ransomware victims would be split between themselves and their customers. Researchers at Fortinet contacted the ransomware writers pretending they were interested in using the product and, soon afterwards, were sent a sample of the malware. Analysis revealed...

Google scoops up one of Apple’s chief chip architects

Google has lured away chip architect Manu Gulati, who’s been spearheading Apple’s own chip developments for close to eight years, reports Variety. As the new lead SOC [systems-on-a-chip] architect, he’ll apparently be working on chips for the company’s line of Pixel smartphones. 

Gulati started working at Apple in 2009, and was instrumental to the company’s efforts to build custom chips for the iPad, the iPhone and Apple TV. Apple began using its own chips in 2010, starting with the introduction of the iPad in 2010, which was powered by the company’s A4 chip.
