Apple’s WWDC always brings us lots of great stuff, the following video from The Verge introduces five things we can expect from Apple’s WWDC 2015 (Worldwide Developers Conference).
Apple’s new 12-inch MacBook has only a single USB-C port, using the USB 3.1 standard, as well as a regular headphone jack. Then how to connect data, video, power and more to it?
To stay connected on the new MacBook realistically, you need plug and unplug accessories fairly frequently. One clever trick you can do is to charge your new MacBook with an external battery pack on the go.
Ahead of the Apple Watch’s upcoming April 24 launch, a select few apps selected by Apple to be available for the Apple Watch have started hitting the App Store today. These app updates that add Apple Watch support include Twitter, Things, Target, Dark Sky, and Sky Guide, and many more apps are continuing to roll out with support.
Apple’s New MacBook is a totally different machine, not just a spec update or an incremental upgrade.
The new ultrathin 12-inch MacBook laptop features Retina Display, a new touch-sensitive trackpad and a new port for data transfer and charging in a single connector. It’s also the first MacBook without a fan, and it uses Intel’s new low-power Core M processor, which allows for longer battery life and a thinner design than past generations of similar Intel chips.
Everything about the MacBook is about beauty, whether it’s the single USB-C port on the left side—the only port on the entire device save for a headphone jack on the right—or the new Gold, Space Gray, and Silver colors. The Gold is actually much more handsome than gaudy, while the Space Gray is dark and sleek, fitting for a device that’s so, so very thin.
It’s a clear indication that Apple values form and beauty first and foremost. But it’s expensive—starting at $1,299. It’s also a little underpowered for such an expensive machine. But good lord is it beautiful.
THE APPLE WATCH will launch on 9 March, according to invites sent out by Apple. According to The New York Times report, The Apple Watch may feature a special battery stretch feature called “Power Reserve.” The low-energy mode will let the Apple Watch continue displaying the time (and nothing else) even with scant battery life left.
Apple has announced the dates for its next World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), an annual event where Apple gives the press and developers a peek at its latest projects. The big announcements will take place at San Francisco’s Moscone West from June 2 through June 6. It will be a conference for application developers and the big unveilings tend to focus on operating systems and software.
Apple has released iOS 7.1, fixing bugs and introducing interesting new features.
CarPlay is Apple’s new vehicular infotainment system for new cars in 2014. It will be shipped in cars from Volvo, Ferrari, Honda, Hyundai and Mercedes this year with partners like BMW, Chevrolet and Ford down the road. CarPlay will provide an easy way to use iOS device while driving, with support for Siri, touchscreens, physical controls, and built-in apps like Phone, Messages and Maps, along with first- and third-party audio apps.
When the iPhone 5s and 5c went on sale, there was every reason to suspect that the more advanced 5S would draw more early adopters to the Apple stores than the 5C.According to the latest statistics from Mixpanel, a web and mobile analytics firm that handles 17 billion user actions per month, Apple’s iPhone 5s is about to account for 20 percent mark in overall iPhone market share.
iPhone 6 is the presumptive name for Apple’s next-generation 2014 flagship iPhone. Some rumors suggest that iPhone 6 may come in 2 size variant – one with 4.8-inch Retina + IGZO high quality bigger screen and another with 5.7-inch display to compete with Android mobile devices. Other rumored features include new 128 GB storage model for more space, A8 processor that is 30 percent much faster than A7, updated Wi-Fi, 4G and Bluetooth technologies, 13 Megapixels front camera with LED flash, improved touch ID fingerprint reader for security purposes, and water and dust resistant for rough and tough use.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on October 31 published a patent application from Apple for a unique solar-ready power management system that will work with both a power adapter and seamlessly with a portable solar panel accessory. This technology would outfit a device with its own system microcontroller and a charger. That built-in gear would handle the conversion of the solar power to the necessary electrical power used by the device. This innovative approach to solar charging could make it more practical to power both MacBooks and iOS devices from the sun, which offers hope to all the Apple device owners who always seem to run out of juice before the day is over.
