  • The high-end 27-inch iMac is more 'pro' than the iMac Pro is

    As I mentioned in yesterday’s iMac article comments, I’m disappointed Apple didn’t offer two Thunderbolt 3 buses like they do on the 16” MBP (I own one). 

    Having a second, external 5K or 6K monitor (e.g. Apple’s own 32” 6K XDR Display—which I got to use with 16” MBP until new iMacs came out), eats up a lot of bandwidth on its Thunderbolt 3 bus. It degrades throughput of data on a fast external SSD on that TB3 bus. Hence a second TB3 bus Is needed as a higher end feature.

  • Future iPhones may shift camera sensor to take perfect pictures with clip-on lenses

    To get out in front on photographic quality, Apple could conceivably sell cases with a rotating disk containing paired lenses—one for each of two lenses with rotation for different pairings— for alternate focal lengths and macro ability. Another add-on to up-sell.  
    I’m also curious if they are working on a 3 lense system.  
    Another exciting area is computational photography as is done with the two lenses used together.

    I read earlier this year that Apple has around a thousand people that work on computational photography (Jean-Louis Gassée’s Monday Note blog—former Apple exec, BE OS founder and very smart guy). That’s much more than Canon, Nikon or Sony can afford to invest. 

    Apple is very serious about photography and AR. Since their pipelines for products can be as much as 5 to 7 years, believe Tim Cook when he says AR is going to be a big deal.
