The rumor mill refuses to give up on the idea that Apple is building an electric car. "Project Titan" has been humming along for quite some, and it appears Apple is not ready to give up on those same aspirations, either. Indeed, the company has recently landed a pretty big hire to help make it a reality one day.
Passwords have been around long enough that it's a ubiquitous element to securing things just about anywhere. But while there are always strides to make them as secure as possible, there's always that chance it won't be enough. Which is why companies like Apple and many others are working on new ways to go beyond the password.
It's par for the course for Apple executives to start making the rounds after major announcements. And the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference is certainly no different. Craig Federighi, Apple's SVP of Software Engineering, has already done some interviews talking about the big announcements from this year's event. But now he's doing something a bit different this year.
Apple is really leaning into the ecosystem with this year's Worldwide Developers Conference. So many of the company's new features it unveiled for iOS 15, or macOS 12 Monterey, or iPadOS 15, are all the same features present on the other platforms. These new elements coming to Apple's desktop operating system are no different.
It took a bit of doing, but Microsoft (like other companies) figured out the "best way" to get its cloud game streaming aspirations on iPhone and iPad: web browsers. Microsoft launched its xCloud game streaming service in a beta earlier this year. But now the company has confirmed a broader launch is coming soon, and with one very important change along with it.
Apple made waves back in 2020 by acquiring one of the most popular weather apps out there. Bringing Dark Sky into the fold had a lot of iOS users excited to see what that would mean for the stock Weather app. And maybe that would mean a Weather app for iPad (and support for CarPlay). We're still waiting for those things, even if the Weather app is getting a Dark Sky infusion with iOS 15.
News first broke about writer Mark Boal's action-thriller Echo 3 way back in July of 2020. News went dark for a while after that, though. It wasn't until May of this year that we learned who would be starring in the upcoming series. But things are starting to go loud.
Apple's ecosystem isn't just about one device. It's about finding the right way to work across all the different Apple-branded products on your desk. And with two new features coming soon to macOS 12 Monterey (and, technically, iPadOS 15), it's getting a bit easier.
There was a long period of time there where Apple was doing just about everything it could to nail down first-look deals. That included producers, directors, and actors. It's been quiet on that front for a bit of time now, but today might buck that trend.
The Apple Watch is one of the most popular products for Apple to date. And it easily dominates the smartwatch market. But it looks like Facebook is ready to bring on its own competitor in 2022.
Apple's transition to its own M1 processor for the Mac (and iPad Pro!) lineup has gone pretty smoothly so far. However, things may start to get a bit rocky as the company continues to lean away from Intel's processors. Namely, when it comes to features.
After initially announcing new podcast subscriptions within the Apple Podcasts app, Apple delayed its launch soon after. At the time, the company didn't say when the new feature would launch to the public. But now we know.
