Apple has a new commercial for iPhone X called Studio in Your Pocket. It pitches the idea that iPhone X’s Portrait Lighting mode is essentially a photography studio in your pocket. It does this by showing a young woman taking a selfie in a train station when studio lights and reflectors start popping into being all around her. As she snaps away, the camera switches to views of those selfies on her iPhone X with darkened backgrounds through Portrait Lighting. It’s a solid pitch in my opinion, and one that will resonate with young people. Check it out.
If an app update after submitted after July doesn’t meet these requirements it will be rejected from the App Store.
Check out this great aerial photograph of Apple Park from photographer Joseph Olesh that was taken from high in the air.
It sounds like there might be a connection between the iPhone X back camera failure and the front TrueDepth sensor system.
There was a time when our computing lives basically revolved around the jazz of cool hardware. Nowadays, it’s all about the social impact of the software we use.
Bryan Chaffin and Jeff Gamet discuss the myth of the failing iPhone X, where that myth comes from, how it’s sustained, and how Apple’s own data says otherwise. They also talk about how Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Luca Maestri tried to dispel those reports during Apple’s quarterly conference call with analysts. They also look at the indicators that HomePod, on the other hand, isn’t doing well, and Tim Cook’s continued insistence on focusing on sound quality when we really want a capable home assistant. They cap the show with some perspective on just how much money Apple is paying out to shareholders.
Yes, Apple’s iPad sales are up year over year for the second fiscal quarter. But there’s much more to the story.
These photos are part of an FCC filing for an “Apple Inc. Smartphone -E3161A,” and clearly show a gold-colored device where no such device currently exists.
There is every indication that Apple’s 2019 Mac Pro will be fundamentally different than its predecessors. John explains.
The TrueDepth camera on your iPhone X is for more than unlocking your phone and Animoji. It also lets you play music, at least in GarageBand. Read on to learn how.
Apple has a new spot out, and I love it. It’s called Fly Market, and it features a young man dancing through a street market using Apple Pay and Face ID on his iPhone X to buy clothes and a present for his mom. The song is “Back Pocket” by Vulfpeck, a great tune. This commercial has charisma, and I love the imagery—I think it’s great. I’d love to hear what you think.
Apple has a fun new commercial out highlighting Face ID on the iPhone X. The message in the ad is that you can use your face to unlock pretty much anything, and its wrapped up in music and a little dancing. Bonus: If you look closely at the end of the commercial you can see an iOS 11 bug where text briefly flows outside a Messages notification bubble.
When we use Face ID on our iPhones to identify ourselves, it’s pretty darn cool. But our perspective shifts when the technology is used in other ways. Should it?
Face ID is handy for authenticating in apps as well as unlocking your iPhone X. If you don’t want to use Face ID to unlock an app, however, you can selectively turn the feature off. Here’s how.
What are the best devices released by Apple in the past few years? That’s a pretty subjective list, so I asked the TMO staff what they thought, and the answers were pretty interesting.
In this episode, Bryan Chaffin leads Jeff Gamet down into the ugly underbelly of FSM, or Fidget Spinner Madness. You can blame Mitsubishi if you want. They also talk about what TMO’s staff thinks were recent great Apple products and read the WWDC tea leaves. Does the WWDC website really mean anything?
John used to always have his 12.9-inch iPad Pro in his lap while watching TV, but no more. His iPhone X has replaced it.
Kelly Guimont and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to share their thoughts on Apple’s original TV show plans, plus John gets all excited about bigger iPhone screens.
Wow! Check out this portable hole app, posted to Twitter as a video by ΛLGΘMΨSΓIC (that’s @algomystic). According to the tweet, it was built with the Unity Engine, and uses ARKit’s Face Tracking feature to fool your eye. The app itself is in review at the App Store. I can’t wait to check it out!

When Apple unveiled its AirPower wireless charging mat last September the company said it would ship some time in 2018, and it’s looking like “some time” may be March.
