Spatial audio is great, but it only works if the source material is multi-channel audio. Thankfully, Apple's Spatialize Stereo feature can place any stereo audio mix in a virtual spatial audio environment around you. Follow along as we show you how to use spatialized stereo.
Apple's iCloud Private Relay depends on “trusted partners” whom the company wouldn't name when unveiling this privacy feature during WWDC21, but now we know who they are.
Non-Dolby audio encoded in intentional stereo will no longer sound dull with a new feature in Apple's iOS 15, iPadOS 15 and macOS 12 Monterey updates, dubbed “Spatialize Stereo”.
At WWDC 2021, Apple announced new versions of iOS, tvOS, macOS, and iPadOS. The latest version of macOS will be called macOS 12 Monterey, and it brings improvements to FaceTime, sharing, and privacy. It also gets the Shortcuts feature, Universal control, and a lot more. Soon after the end of WWDC 2021 keynote, Apple released the first macOS 12 beta to developers.
Now, if you're a developer, you must be eager to try out the new macOS 12 beta. To make things easier for you, we've created a quick guide on how to install macOS 12 beta on your Mac.
With the iPadOS 15 and macOS 12 Monterey software updates, Apple brought the iPhone's handy low power mode to the iPad and Mac, helping extend battery life on those devices.
This tutorial goes through the process of creating an install drive from the newly-released macOS 12 Monterey Beta application. Having an external drive allows you to install the OS to multiple computers without re-downloading it, perform clean installs instead of initiating them from within an existing OS, and boot to the installer's built-in recovery for troubleshooting tools.
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.
macOS Monterey and tvOS 15 bring spatial audio to your Apple TV and Mac with dynamic head tracking via the AirPods Pro or AirPods Max. But without any chips or sensors for spatial awareness inside those devices, how does exactly Apple measure your head movement?
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.
