iOS 12, watchOS 5, tvOS 12, macOS 10.14 beta 2: here’s what’s new

Inching closer to its massive Fall rollout, Apple released the second developer beta of all of its four operating systems.

The fine print, however, does mention something about a more “unified” experience. At WWDC 2018 earlier this week, SVP Craig Federighi made a not so surprising and still surprising revelation: iOS apps will, in the near future, run on Macs.

Safari stokes privacy war in iOS 12 and macOS Mojave

Apple is declaring a new war on tracking in Safari, ramping up its privacy features in the macOS Mojave and iOS 12 browser.

This iMac Pro server rack is both beautiful and powerful

This iMac Pro server rack is both beautiful and powerful

With the iMac Pro potent enough to embarrass the Mac Pro - and Apple's "trash can" computer not likely to see an update until next year - one company has taken the obvious next step and harnessed multiple all-in-ones into a server farm. MacStadium made headlines back in 2013 with its unusual rack-mounted Mac Pro arrays, demonstrating that just because Apple's form-factor is atypical, that doesn't mean it couldn't be chained together for some seriously heavy workloads.
