Apple releases tvOS and HomePod 16.3.1 with bug and stability fixes

Apple has released software updates for HomePod and Apple TV, version 16.3.1, to work out a few bugs. If you’re wondering whether this means you’re missing an iOS/iPadOS 16.3.1 update–you are not. This release appears to be only for HomePod and Apple TV. Apple’s second-generation HomePod began shipping on Friday. The patch notes simply state...

Here’s why everyone is going to want an iPhone 15 Ultra this fall

We’re still about seven months away from the unveiling of the iPhone 15, and if the rumors are to be believed, everyone will be talking about one thing: the iPhone 15 Ultra. Like the Apple Watch Ultra, the iPhone 15 Ultra is rumored to have the best of everything Apple has to offer in an iPhone. As Apple’s largest iPhone, it’ll have a similar...

iOS 16.3 appears to be forcing some users to protect their accounts with 2FA

For most users, iOS 16.3 was an incidental upgrade, bringing important security updates and fixes along with a few new features, including support for security keys for Apple IDs. But some users are reporting a problem connecting to their iCloud Drive and Backup—and the problem appears to be related to two-factor authentication. Apple hasn’t...

Apple may let the Mac Studio languish for years so more people buy the Mac Pro

It’s been about 11 months since Apple surprised us with the launch of the all-new Mac Studio with M1 Max and M1 Ultra chips, which was largely seen as a precursor to the Mac Pro. According to a new report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, it’s a little too close to the Mac Pro. In his latest Power On newsletter, Gurman claims that Apple is unlike...

The 2nd-gen AirPods Pro are under $200 for the first time in 2022

We like Apple’s 2nd-gen AirPods Pro at full price, but we love them when they’re at the lowest price of the year: Amazon is selling the new AirPods Pro for $199, a savings of $49, a new 2022 low and matching the best price we’ve ever seen. The 2nd-gen AirPods Pro have the same design as the original model, but they’re all-new on the inside. They...

Apple in February: Will there be more surprises before the big March event?

Apple almost never releases major new hardware in January, and yet last month it released the Mac mini with M2 and M2 Pro, MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and M2 Max, and a new full-size HomePod, which began shipping on Friday, February 3, and is already back-ordered. Apple also released significant OS updates: Apple released iOS 16.3 (and iPadOS,...

Apple’s culture is what makes the Mac a bad gaming platform

Here we are, almost forty years after the debut of the Mac, and if there’s one issue that remains a hot button to this day it’s gaming on the platform. This past week, my colleague Jason Cross penned a piece explaining the technological moves Apple would need to make in order to turn gaming on the Mac into a real thing. Jason’s points are good...

How to stop Memories from appearing in Photos

Memories is Apple’s automatically generated fuzzy glimpse into your past. Because the process is entirely algorithmic, there can be hits and misses. Why would I want to remember ill-lit pictures of food, none of which have people in them, from a Thanksgiving 12 years ago? But when it works, it’s a nifty way to get a slice of an event, day, set of people,...

The high-priced iPhone 15 Ultra might have Apple’s biggest screen ever

In Apple’s glossary, the word “Ultra” means bigger: The M1 Ultra has 47 billion more transistors than even the new M2 Max, while the Apple Watch Ultra sports a 49mm display compared to the 41mm and 45mm Series 8. According to a new report, the iPhone 15 Ultra could bring that same mentality to the iPhone line. For months, we’ve expected the...

The new HomePod should have been a reboot instead of a rerun

To say that the 2nd-generation HomePod announcement was a surprise is something of an understatement. While there had been some rumblings that a new model was in the works, the timing was completely unexpected, arriving on a Wednesday morning in the middle of January following the launch of the M2 Mac mini and MacBook Pro. But what’s even stranger...
