Bryan Chaffin and Charlotte Henry discuss what seems like a blistering pace of new Apple products, even in the midst of a pandemic. Charlotte explains why she is so excited about the digital version of Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) coming in June, and they both look at the product they wish Apple would make.
Apple’s annual World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) is not only a key education and outreach event for Apple’s army of third-party developers, it’s also become one of its main events for announcing new products. We can count on new versions of macOS, iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, and watchOS, and sometimes Apple announces new hardware, too.
Bryan Chaffin and Dave Hamilton join host Kelly Guimont to discuss WWDC 2020, and making lemonade from the hand of lemons we’ve been dealt.
Charlotte Henry and Andrew Orr join host Kelly Guimont to discuss the new look for WWDC and Security Friday’s headlines and tips.
John Martellaro joins host Kelly Guimont to discuss Apple’s next moves regarding gathering thousands of people in San Jose (for WWDC) or not, and manufacturing logistics vs the current state of affairs.
In an interview with Fox Business Network, Tim Cook said that Apple is “fundamentally strong” in the face of COVID-19.
Apple has taken the old WWDC app and turned it into the Apple Developer app. It will still have the same developer news, videos, and more.
At WWDC 2019, Apple announced that macOS Catalina would reside in its own read-only volume. Security is greatly enhanced.
Michael Gartenberg spent three years as Apple’s Senior Director of Product Marketing, reporting directly to Senior VP Phil Schiller. In his sixth encore appearance on Background Mode, Michael and I analyze Apple’s 2019 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
We started with a discussion of the new 2019 Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR. We also pondered why Apple SVP of Product Marketing, Phil Schiller, was noticeably absent from the stage. As an aside, Michael tells a hilarious story about SVP Schiller that happened back at WWDC 2013. Then we turned to Apple’s Catalyst system and some of the nuances of building and running iOS apps on a Mac. We also touched on iPad OS. Michael is well versed in Apple marketing strategies and is always a delight to have on the show.
In Rants & Raves Episode #335, Dr. Mac reveals what he found encouraging (or at least interesting) at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference last week.
John Martellaro and Bryan Chaffin join Dave Hamilton to talk about Apple’s march forward towards security-with-flexibility in macOS Catalina. And then it’s time to look at Apple TV’s future… by the numbers.
It isn’t just consumer technology. Apple is also working to make enterprise technology more private, like BYOD programs.
During the week of WWDC and AltConf, I ended up getting to spend some time with Chuck Joiner of MacVoices. We talked about the announcements of the week, the upgrade path of previous Macs, and how accessibility and security are increasingly spotlighted by Apple. We had a great time talking, and hopefully it shows in the video below. Enjoy!
The Mac Observer’s Dave Hamilton recently appeared on Chuck Joiner’s MacVoices show. Fresh from WWDC19, Mr. Hamilton talks about first impressions of the new Mac Pro (and its intended market), macOS Catalina a geek’s perspective (like the separate system volume), and HomeKit-enabled routers. I liked his perspective on the Mac Pro. The thousand-dollar stand got most of the media attention, but it’s a pro device for specific audiences, such as videographers. There’s a reason why Apple kept comparing the Pro Display XDR to a US$43,000 Sony monitor. Mr. Hamilton also knows routers well, and how Apple is acknowledging that other companies do networking hardware better.
Andrew Orr and Dave Hamilton join Kelly Guimont (and what’s left of her voice) to chat about Apple’s advertising stance and new OS features.
It’s true, Craig Federighi let loose a perfect little Quick Tip last week at WWDC, did you catch it? Your two geeks did, and they’re here to share it with you. In addition to some more Quick Tips from other listeners, this episode is chock full of answers to your great questions on topics like preparing your iTunes library for Catalina, upgrading to a new Mac, and much, much more. Press play and enjoy learning at least five new things!
Bryan Chaffin and John Kheit dig into Apple’s new Mac Pro, covering the good, the bad, and the ugly. They talk specs, costs, some of the things that came out since the keynote, and weigh the very important question of whether they want one. Spoiler, yes, but John’s actually likely to pull the trigger. Bryan also makes sure to give John plenty of room to take his victory laps for the many things he got right leading up to this long-awaited announcement.
The potentail for confusion in the macOS iTunes to Apple Music app transition in Catalina is great. Here are the facts.
