  • Former Apple CDO Jony Ive helped design the 24-inch iMac

    I would find it very difficult to believe that Ive had anything to do with this piece of turd. It’s so fugly that a first year industrial design student wouldn’t design this.
    As an industrial designer of sorts myself - bang on!
    There are so many flaws, I’m shocked this is actually an Apple product. 
    Let’s hope they don’t botch the real iMac’s. 
    We are all anxiously awaiting your design then and may I suggest you send your CV to Cupertino, since according to some of you anonymous geniuses here at AI, those bozos  over there have absolutely no idea what they're doing.

  • 'iPhone 13' 120Hz ProMotion display production started by Samsung


    In terms of shipment numbers, Samsung is thought to be producing 80 million units of the display for the new iPhone, with between 120 million and 130 million total OLED panels anticipated to ship to Apple in 2021. For LG, it is apparently aiming for 30 million units for the "iPhone 13," and a total of 50 million overall for the year.

    Those numbers are just mind blowing. 
    This is one reason why Apple could not put Pro motion in the iPhone 12 Pro. The sheer numbers required by Apple to put into their flagship devices is just staggering.
    Before someone says "Yeah, but Samsung sells more phones",  I don't think they sell as many brand new flagship devices as Apple.

  • 2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro review: Pro hardware without Apple's pro software

    Summary: The iPad Pro has amazing hardware but meh software.
    My take: The iPad Pro running Mac OS with full touch screen support would be a pure drool fest. An instant buy now and a huge industry disrupter. Steve Jobs would have released it immediately.
    Disgusting idea. It really seems that these who want macOS on an iPad, any iPad, haven’t given any thought to what that would be like.

    ‘’to do that, get any app that allows an iPad to run the macOS Desktop. You’ll see why it’s a ridiculous idea right away.
    I am quite certain that Apple has already explored that option. 
    I am also certain that Apple designers/engineers have already seen what the competition is doing as well, the MS Surface/convertible market. If that was the computing Valhalla that many here claim or want, Apple by now would've been calling it quits on iPadOS and touchscreen Macs would've already been announced.

    So is that why it only comes with 2/4 USB-C ports?
    The ports are my biggest/only real complaint with the new iMac. I’ve never thought that having all of the ports on the back was a good idea. Put at least one or two on the side so they’re accessible. aAnd limiting the low end Mac to just 2 ports??? It’s not a laptop; you can’t even make a half-assed space or power excuse. I’d also like to see at least one USB A port. Even 6 years after Apple declared ‘USB C is the future’ USB A is still incredibly common. My new Apple TV came with a USB A charging cable last week. 

    Market pressure. Companies still selling devices with USB-A are only looking at the here and now, not the longer-term longevity of the devices. USB-C supports USB-A (via an adapter), but not the other way around, so it makes sense to provide USB-C and let consumers downgrade if they need to.
    USB A supports USB C with an adapter. iPhones come with USB A cables. So is Apple only looking at the here and now? Or is Apple not wanting to piss off iPhone customers who mostly have USB A everywhere, and don’t care about Mac users?

    Syntech USB C Female to USB Male Adapter(3 Pack), Type C to USB A Converter Compatible with Laptops, Power Banks, Chargers, for iPad Air 4/iPad Pro 2020, iPhone 11/12 Pro Max, Samsung Galaxy S20 etc https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B085VT1VJT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_B3MCRRFN6NR02EHXQG68
    No they don’t.
    All iPhone models sold by Apple today, including the XR come with a lightning to USBC cable.

    Given that the M1 can run either OS, consider this: boot the iPad into macOS and you essentially get a 12.9” MacBook. Touch screen is disabled. Boot it into iPadOS and it runs like a regular iPad with touch screen operational. Instead of trying to merge the operating systems and functionality, keep them discrete and boot into one or the other. No worries about how this or that app is going to run in a different OS. 
    … and after WWDC you will be greatly disappointed.
