Apple rolled out iTunes 12.7 on Tuesday with support for iOS 11, but it also does away with a couple features many users rely on.
All of the new models have better cameras with more functionality, a new image sensor processor, and studio lighting.
Apple got behind the curve while the 4K/UHD revolution was taking place. Now it’s time for some serious catch-up work.
Dave Hamilton, Bryan Chaffin, and Jeff Butts join Jeff Gamet to share their reactions to today’s “Let’s meet at our place” media event at Apple’s new headquarters where we saw the iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple TV 4K.
Former Apple Senior Director Michael Gartenberg and I got together to discuss Apple’s September 12 event, “Let’s Meet at Our Place.” We traded thoughts on the new Apple Watch Series 3, the Apple TV 4K, the iPhone 8 series and the iPhone X. Michael’s insights are, as always, amazing. Don’t miss this special edition coverage.
Along with iOS 11 gold master, or GM, Apple also released watchOS 4 gold master on Tuesday.
Apple posted a new commercial to YouTube called iPhone in a Whole New Light. It’s the usual introductory commercial for a new iPhone, and includes the slow motion closeup reveal of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Both were announced during Apple’s media event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park.
macOS High Sierra will ship on September 25th, according to information added to the High Sierra website.
Apple rolled out iOS 11 gold master to developers Tuesday following its “Let’s meet at our place” media event.
Apple released a bunch of solid commercials Tuesday, but iPhone X is my favorite. It uses some gorgeous colors splashing around as a lure for the devices OLED screen. The colors grabbed my attention during the keynote when it was first shown. They reminded me a lot of the 70s’ kid’s toy, the Magic Window, but with a lot more colors. It’s compelling, bold, striking, and sexy. Interestingly, text at the end of the spot indicates that it hasn’t been approved by the FCC, and specifies that it can’t be sold until it is.
Apple posted a short spot called iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in 8 seconds. It’s a rapid fire look at some of the new features in the company’s new iPhone 8 line.
Apple has a new commercial called Surf that promotes Apple Watch Series 3’s ability to make and receive phone calls. It’s a powerful spot with strong imagery and a nice shot or two of the new Apple Watch.
Apple published a new commercial called Dear Apple. it promotes Apple Watch Series 3 by looking at letters that have been written to Apple and CEO Tim Cook. There will probably be shorter versions aired on TV, but the full version below is two minutes and 38 seconds. The testimonials range from health uses, sports cases, diabetes, car crashes, and a Russian cyborg (for real). I think it’s a great video.
Not so long ago the phrase “simple personal cloud storage” was an oxymoron. Setup and use weren’t simple and prices were more premium than personal. Then, My Cloud Home, a new personal storage device from Western Digital priced from $149.99, came along and changed everything. It’s reasonably-priced, simple to set up and use, and yet, surprisingly full-featured.
Apple’s surprise products at its “Let’s meet at our place” event were a large wireless charging plate for its new products, and an AirPods wireless charging case.
The new 5.8-inch model sports an OLED screen, Face ID instead of Touch ID, and inductive charging support.
You’ll be able to make phone calls from your wrist, but the new wearable device doesn’t feature much else in the way of new features other than additional color options for the case and bands.
Apple TV finally got 4K video support on Tuesday when Apple showed off a new model during its “Let’s meet at our place” media event.
It will ship with 64GB and 256GB models, starting at $699 for iPhone 8 and $799 for iPhone 8 Plus.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said Tuesday that Apple Watch is not just the number one smartwatch on the planet, it’s now the number one watch. It would represent a huge accomplishment for Apple, and one that should scare the pants off the watch world. In the screenshot I included, Apple Watch is about to overcome Rolex to be the top brand in terms of sales.
