Apple today introduced new over-ear headphones called AirPods Max, with key features including high-fidelity audio, Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, and spatial audio. The headphones are priced at $549 in the United States and available to order starting today on Apple.com and in the Apple Store app, with shipments beginning December 15.
To start, Apple Fitness+ will include 9 different categories of workouts. It requires Apple Watch and the ability to use iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV means users can get a workout from anywhere, even without equipment.
Mr Federighi told The Telegraph all apps would be expected to abide by the new App Tracking Transparency rules.
He said: “There will be policy enforcement. Any form or mechanism of tracking a user for advertising or for providing information to data brokers will have to ask for permissions.
“Failure to do so is a violation of App Store policy… and are grounds for having an app removed.”
Today’s HomePod and HomePod mini update just includes generic release notes of “general performance and stability improvements.”
Google has announced that Apple Music is now available on smart speakers and displays that use the Google Assistant, including Google’s own line of Nest products, such as the new Nest Audio.
If you’ve shied away from smart speakers in the past, this isn’t a bad one to try out, and if you’re like me and have found yourself already embracing the Apple smart home ecosystem, it’s the perfect complementary device. Previous smart home overlords have left me wanting. The HomePod Mini gave me exactly what I need.
Dilims takes time zones and shows you blocks of time across them all simultaneously, making it easy to find a time that suits everyone.
Now a new app from Aaron Pearce called Barter brings some great functionality to the developer community to easily keep track of metrics with App Store sales widgets on iPhone and iPad.
If Apple is to redefine the laptop for the next decade, we’d all do well to remember the lesson of the MacBook Air. Sometimes, you don’t get it right on the first try—and that’s okay. Given a couple of years to learn those lessons, Apple ended up creating the greatest laptop design of all time.
Let me be clear about the headline above: The “flaw” we’re going to talk about isn’t a problem with any specific benchmark or reviewer. It’s a difference in how the Apple M1 allocates and assigns resources versus how x86 CPUs work.
I can't afford the AirPods Max. Or anything Max. :-)
Thanks for reading.
