That new keyboard is the key to Apple’s MacBook update

 There’s a decent chance you missed the MacBook news this week. It was buried amid a flood of news as Apple powered through announcements at the WWDC keynote on Monday. Like the majority of the hardware news at the event, the differences are entirely behind the scenes — and let’s be honest, upgraded Intel processors will never be as exciting to the layperson as a Siri speaker… Read More

Apple’s HomePod is a cautious approach to the connected home

 The new HomePod sounds great. I walked away from WWDC impressed with the full and rich sound the company has managed to get out of such a small form factor. There’s nice hardware on-board and a lot happening on the back end to create an optimal audio experience, including a six-mic array that sonically maps the room the speaker is in. Other smart home hubs like the Echo – and… Read More

As the Surface line courts creatives, Apple pushes back with the iMac and iPad Pro

 Apple doesn’t really talk about the Surface, but was pretty clear from yesterday’s WWDC keynote that Microsoft’s line is beginning to have a direct impact on the company. Between the iMac Pro and a rethink of iOS dedicated, in part, to bringing more functionality to the iPad Pro line, the message is clear: Apple’s not giving up any of its market share without a fight.… Read More

The feature will go a long way towards helping all iPhone owners get better control over their phone’s storage, but will be especially useful for those who own one of Apple’s… Read More

Everything Apple announced at its WWDC keynote

 WWDC is usually a key event for Apple. This is the company’s developer conference. While Apple has mostly focused on software news in recent years, this one was a bit different. We got a bit of everything — major software updates, new devices as well as a sneak peek at Apple’s roadmap for the coming months. In case you missed it, here’s everything Apple announced today.

Apple HomePod speaker favors sound over Siri

 Apparently Apple knows Siri kinda sucks, because it was the last thing mentioned in the unveiling of the new HomePod speaker. That’s why it’s dumpily named as a successor to the iPod, not Apple’s old-but-unwise voice assistant. Read More

Apple has a new wireless Magic Keyboard with a full numeric keypad

 Apple packed a lot of announcements into its WWDC keynote today, even with the long running time, so it’s understandable that the new Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad didn’t get any stage time. Understandable, but unforgivable, because this is truly the company’s greatest creation. Read More

Apple’s idea of an apocalypse is a world without apps

 To kick off WWDC this year, Apple gave us a glimpse of what the world would be like without apps. In an opening video for the conference, a new employee at Apple haphazardly unplugs the App Store servers and sends the entire world into full-scale chaos. Instagram gone, a young woman stands on the street shouting “Selfies?!”, offering physical portraits of herself to folks running past. Read More
