    How Apple TV 4K could outpace competition from Roku, Amazon and more

    The Apple TV 4K is here, and it has both 4K resolution and HDR support, which means it can work with the latest TVs, projectors and content formats for better pictures, brighter colors and generally improved visuals. But neither 4K nor HDR are new tricks, and in fact this basically means Apple is catching up with a mature field where streaming customers have a lot of existing options. Read More

    All the videos from Apple’s iPhone event

    In case you happened to miss the presentation of Apple’s latest iGear, we’ve got your back. The company today announced Apple Watch Series 3, a new 4K Apple TV, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, as well as the much-rumored iPhone X (pronounced “ten”).

    Apple is releasing macOS High Sierra on September 25

    Apple has been hard at work on four different operating systems — iOS, tvOS, watchOS and macOS. And the company just updated its website after its iPhone launch event. It now says that macOS High Sierra is going to come out on September 25. macOS didn’t get any love this time around as the company didn’t even mention High Sierra once. Maybe there wasn’t enough time. Read More

    Apple reveals AirPower wireless charging pad coming in 2018

    Apple has a new wireless charging pad called the AirPower, which is essentially a mat with room for your new iPhone 8 or iPhone X, as well as your Apple Watch, and even AirPods with a new optional wireless charging case accessory.

  • iPhone X basically has a Kinect on the front to enable Face ID

    iPhone X basically has a Kinect on the front to enable Face ID

    It remains to be seen whether Apple’s Face ID will be as convenient as Touch ID (it already failed on stage), but at the very least we can’t accuse Apple of not dedicating enough hardware to the task. The front of the new iPhone X has a full-on depth-sensing system much like that of the original Kinect. The prominent cutout on top hides more than a selfie camera — it has a… Read More

    Apple announces a wireless charging case for the AirPods

    Apple announced the AirPods at the iPhone 7 launch event; a year later, the company is already updating its wireless earbuds — well at least its case. Even though the AirPods are still backordered in most stores, the company just announced a new optional charging case. The AirPods case still works and looks more or less the same. But the indicator light is now outside of the case so that… Read More

    Face ID will work with Apple Pay, third-party apps

    Goodbye fingers, hello faces. With the introduction of Face ID, and the removal of the Touch ID button, Apple today confirmed speculation about its next generation of on-device authentication when it comes to paying for things: You will now be able to buy goods using your new iPhone X, authenticating your identity with facial recognition. Apple detailed the new iPhone X on stage today at the… Read More

    The iPhone is officially getting wireless charging

    It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally happening: the iPhone is getting wireless charging. Apple just announced as much while debuting the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Perhaps most interesting: Apple didn’t go and make an all new standard here. They’re using Qi (pronounced “Chee”) — an open standard that has been in the works for nearly a decade. Read More
