SwiftUI and Catalyst: Apple executes its invisible transition strategy

Wed, 06/12/2019 - 06:00

Last week in San Jose I found myself considering something John Gruber wrote for Macworld at the beginning of this decade—about how Apple’s product design doesn’t happen in short bursts, contrary to popular belief. It is a marathon, not a sprint. And no other company in the tech industry has the track record at it that Apple has.

“It’s a slow and steady process of continuous iterative improvement—so slow, in fact, that the process is easy to overlook if you’re observing it in real time,” Gruber wrote. “Only in hindsight is it obvious just how remarkable Apple’s platform development process is.”

iMovie's latest update brings green screen effects, 80 new soundtracks, and more

Tue, 06/11/2019 - 15:11

Apple’s iMovie app for iOS just got updated to version 2.2.7, and it's one of the app's most interesting updates in a while. It includes support for a green screen effect, 80 new soundtracks, support for images with transparent backgrounds, and some noteworthy smaller changes.

The green screen effect is by far the most interesting as it lets you replace any green or blue background in your videos with imported imagery. It does a lot to make iMovie more like the real movies.

You’ll also get 80 new soundtracks that run the gamut from pop to chill, and each one adjusts to fit the length of your projects. Today’s update also introduces the ability to drop images with transparent backgrounds into your videos, which will come in handy if you’d like to keep your logo on the screen for a YouTube project.

The feature that dare not be named: Apple’s privacy advantage

Tue, 06/11/2019 - 10:00

It’s been more than a week since Apple’s WWDC 2019 keynote and now it’s time to look back and…[squints to read] realize what a failure it was.

That seems wrong, but that’s what it says here.

Yes, writing for the Forbes contributor network and sock puppet theater, Greg Petro says that “At its Core, Apple Is No Longer Innovative.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Peter and Gary.)

Just this week at Apple’s much touted WWDC 2019, the company unveiled—you guessed it—more mundane updates to its iOS software for iPhone and iPad…

Amazon knocks more than $100 off the price of the 9.7-inch iPad

Tue, 06/11/2019 - 09:22

The baseline 9.7-inch iPad may lack a lot of the power of its specialized siblings like the iPad Air and iPad Pro (and even the iPad mini), but it’s a great little device for anyone who just needs a dependable tablet. Today, Amazon is selling the 128GB model for the lowest price we’ve ever seen it listed for—although, truth be told, it’s only a dollar less than the previous low mark. Still, that’s a $101 discount, which lets you pick it up for just $328, down from the usual price of $429. For a bit of context, that’s a dollar less than you’d pay for the 32GB model at retail.

For that matter, the 32GB model is also enjoying an $80 discount, which brings the price down to $249. Short of a Black Friday sale, I can’t imagine these prices going much lower.
