Apple CarPlay could be iOS 13’s most important update

Apple CarPlay will get some huge changes in iOS 13, and while the new iPhone software has a number of improvements, it's the driving software that may be most important. 90-percent of new cars sold in the US now support CarPlay, a dashboard-specific interface that offers a safer, cleaner UI for drivers.

Apple wouldn’t let me touch its $999 Pro Display XDR stand

Apple wouldn’t let me touch its $999 Pro Display XDR stand

Sculptural. Elegant. Sinuously crisp. Not typically words you'd expect to hear about a monitor stand, but then again the Apple Pro Display XDR is no ordinary monitor. When Apple decides to make the best screen in the industry, it doesn't hold back, and the accessories are equally excessive.

New Mac Pro first look: Be careful what you wish for

New Mac Pro first look: Be careful what you wish for

Familiar, and yet new: the new 2019 Mac Pro is about as big a departure, generation to generation, as Apple computers get, but somehow it still feels comfortably familiar. Perhaps it's how it nods back to the old "cheese grater" aesthetic in the days before the trash can, or a more nebulous sense that Apple is finally, again, listening to its most ambitious users.

iOS 13, iPadOS, tvOS 13, macOS Catalina release date and Beta today

This afternoon some users will gain access to iOS 13, iPadOS, and the newest desktop operating system for Apple computers, macOS Catalina.

macOS Catalina splits up iTunes, adds iPads as secondary displays

macOS Catalina splits up iTunes, adds iPads as secondary displays

WWDC keynotes are, first and foremost, a place to learn about incoming software updates for Apple's various platforms, and macOS is in for a big one with macOS Catalina. As rumored plenty of times in the lead up to WWDC, macOS Catalina will split up iTunes into three different apps: Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple TV. Gone is the bloated and slow single app that iTunes has become over the years and in its place rises three new apps that will hopefully accomplish their tasks much faster.

Mac Pro and Apple Pro Display XDR prices and 2019 release dates

In the 2019 Mac Pro and Apple Pro Display we've got the most powerful, massive, and expensive top-end Apple computing hardware ever made. The Mac Pro for 2019 is modular, which means you'll be able to buy a bunch of different configurations, also right out the gate.

Apple Pro Display XDR is the perfect Mac Pro monitor

Apple Pro Display XDR is the perfect Mac Pro monitor

With a new Mac Pro on the horizon, Apple has decided that a computer as beefy as that needs an equally beefy display. Right after giving us a few demos of the Mac Pro in action at WWDC today, Apple introduced us to the Pro Display XDR, a 32-inch 6K retina display that's meant to go hand-in-hand with Apple's top-of-the-line desktop. That, of course, means that you're going to paying a significant chunk of change to own one.

This is the new Mac Pro: Professionally modular, thermally sound

The Mac Pro is back, and it looks like a completely new piece of machinery. This device is both about simple, stark refinement on its outside and high-powered MacOS-based processing on its inside. It's sort of like the cheese grater aesthetic never went away - and it's back now with far more intense elements - and it's all modular! [UPDATE: And by that I mean it's largely modular, not ALL modular.]

iPadOS official: Multitasking, Files, more for iPad

Apple wants the iPad to replace your PC, and it's taking a big step in that direction by introducing iPadOS today. While the first urge might be to accuse this of being just an iPad-centric re-branding of iOS, iPadOS definitely seems to be more than just that. iPadOS has some big features coming along with it, chief among them being improvements to multitasking.

Sign in with Apple throws privacy shade at Google and Facebook

iOS 13 has a lot of big features coming along with it, but one area Apple focused on a lot today was privacy. As it turns out, Apple is taking a shot at single sign-on methods from Google and Facebook by introducing "Sign in with Apple." Apple bills this as an SSO method, just like the ones from Google and Facebook, except without all of the tracking.
