As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc across the globe, Apple (and other companies) has had to shift tactics in an effort to keep shoppers and employees alike safe. To that end, the company has made a decision that will go into effect this week, and, as it stands, does not have an end date.
Swift is one of the most popular development languages out there, thanks in part to the fact that iOS is one of the most popular platforms out there in the wild. In an effort to make sure that developers, and those interested in becoming developers or simply just learning a new trade, some educators are turning to development courses in Apple's dev language.
Earlier today, Apple announced the results for its third fiscal quarter. It was another dominant stretch of three months for the company, and, of course, its Services division. As has become the norm for these results, it's the Services division that continues to break records.
While there are still some major issues hindering businesses all over the world, Apple continues to march ahead. Not so surprisingly, the company had yet another strong quarter over the middle of 2021. And today the company's revealing how well things went over the course of the last three months.
Right now, the iPad mini is still a pretty small tablet. Even with a screen that measures in at 7.9 inches. But apparently Apple's ready to stretch the meaning of the word mini, and will be upping the size of the upcoming redesigned tablet's display.
"Shot on iPhone" is one of Apple's most prominent, and long running, marketing efforts to date. It has been going on for years now, showcasing not only still photography, but also films, shot on the iPhone. And today, Apple's uploaded a new video meant to show off just how easy it can be to capture a cinematic shot on your smartphone.
For some customers, different accessories are going to be far more important than others. Not talking about headphones or anything like that. But something like a case or screen protector. For some folks, buying a new phone just automatically means buying a specific type of accessory to go along with it, too.
MagSafe, which allows for accessories of all kinds to attach to the back of supported iPhone models, is a great feature. But as is the case for all accessory-focused features, it needs support beyond Apple's. Which is good news for external battery packs.
With the arrival of Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos in Apple Music earlier this year, the expectation was that the feature would work with a variety of different Apple-branded devices right out of the box. And that's certainly the case (especially with Lossless audio quality). But it turns out Apple has had to revise the list of supported devices that support the upgraded listening experience from the built-in speakers.
Earlier this year, Apple Music added two features that have quickly picked up plenty of attention. Lossless quality and Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos. For Apple Music subscribers on Android, however, the wait has been a little longer. It has finally ended, though.
Health features are baked right into the Apple Watch. It's one of the standout elements of Apple's smartwatch, and certainly at least one reason why the device is so popular. So it only makes sense that Apple would create new ads on a semi-regular basis to promote those things.
There have been rumors swirling around for a bit that Apple is ready to redesign the iPad mini. A bold change for the small tablet. And now another report aims to tell us that the upcoming tablet will have one more change to the design.
