Charlotte Henry and Dave Hamilton join host Kelly Guimont to discuss updates to Logic Pro X and what those improvements mean to musicians.

The iPhone X and XS had an L-shaped logic board and battery. A leak claims to show that the 2019 iPhone will move back to a rectangular shape. This could mean bigger batteries.
Sadly we can’t gain any information from the PCB design. Questions about the iPhone XI’s port of choice are still looming. We already know what the iPhone XI and XI Max will look like, but hardware info is rather limited at this point.
Logic Pro 10.4.5 comes with performance improvements and optimizations to let it take full advantage of the 2019 Mac Pro.
Apple launched ‘Behind the Music’, a UK-only page on its website outlining how its products help users compose, record, and mix music.
If you have a 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro with function keys and the SSD or logic board fails, Apple has a bigger repair in store for you.
The maintenance release patch notes include six bug fixes in the Mac App Store, but the full patch notes on Apple’s site—and included in full in the article—list more than a hundred bug fixes. Most are minor GUI and performance-related fixes.

Apple alerted some owners of its pro apps that older versions may not run on macOS High Sierra—here are the version numbers that will.

Apple announced Pro Apps Bundle for Education Thursday. It includes all of the company’s pro software—Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, Motion, Compressor, and MainStage—in one bundle for $199.99. “The industry-leading apps used by professional video editors and musicians are now available at a special price for qualifying college students, teachers, and education institutions,” the company said. Purchased individually outside of the education channel, these apps would total $629.95. This is no substitute for new professional Mac hardware, but it is a statement of support for the pro market, and it comes in the wake of CEO Tim Cook telling shareholders that Apple cares about the pro market. Getting students embedded with Apple’s software is a good way to hook them into the Apple ecosystem.
Apple released Logic Pro X 10.3.1 Tuesday. The update includes a security fix for maliciously crafted GarageBand files. It also improves the way regions perform, edits, and the ability to share 44.1kHz projects to GarageBand for iOS.
Outgoing FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler made a plea for the incoming administration to protect Net Neutrality.

Apple announced “major updates” to GarageBand for iOS and Logic Pro X on Wednesday (for NAMM), going so far as to issue a press release for the updates. The consumer-oriented GarageBand is getting the Alchemy synthesizer and a new browser for finding and using sounds. Apple’s professional DAW—Logic Pro X—gets support for Touch Bar, Track Alternatives, an updated interface, and other changes. Both updates are free.
