With Apple, everything old is new again

Mac World - Fri, 2019-03-22 09:00

Whoever said “out with the old, in with the new” clearly wasn’t talking about Apple’s playbook.

The company may have its fair share of new and updated devices, but it’s also made a habit of building off of its existing devices—and not just in terms of spec bumps and speed boosts, but in actively finding ways to use old products as launching points for brand new devices. It’s a move that most companies probably couldn’t pull off, but one with which Apple has had great success—and which it will probably continue to use in the future.

Something in the Air

When Apple launched the redesigned 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros late last year, it discontinued the 10.5-inch iPad Pro after only a little over a year of service. Apple’s certainly no stranger to quick turnarounds on products—remember the seven-month reign of the third-generation iPad?—but it seemed extra strange to build out an entire new screen size of device only to summarily replace it.

Bent iPad Pros may develop logic board issues, but good luck getting the Apple Store to fix it

PC World - Fri, 2019-03-22 08:00
Two different Apple Store technicians concluded that a Macworld reader’s iPad Pro issues were caused by bending but refused to repair it under warranty.

Bent iPad Pros may develop logic board issues, but good luck getting the Apple Store to fix it

Mac World - Fri, 2019-03-22 08:00

Editor's note: A reader contacted Macworld with this tale of a bent iPad Pro and his struggle to get it repaired, but requested that we only use his first name in the article.

When reports started surfacing late last year of bent iPad Pro devices and Apple’s unwillingness to repair or replace affected units, they didn’t register on Marcus's radar. Having just bought a tablet in July, he wasn’t in the market for a new one. Even though his 10.5-inch iPad Pro was part of the previous Touch ID generation, Marcus was perfectly happy with it, having safely secured it with an Otterbox Defender case from the moment he unboxed it.

3 things cord-cutters should look for at Apple’s ‘show time’ event

Mac World - Fri, 2019-03-22 07:00

Monday’s Apple event won’t be the first that’s been dubbed “Showtime.” The landscape was very different for the first Showtime event back then. There was no iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, or Apple Watch. Streaming was a thing that relied heavily on buffering. Netflix was shipping out DVDs in red envelopes.

That event was over 12 years ago. It brought a slew of new products, including an updated iPod, a brand new iPod nano, an even smaller iPod shuffle, and a sneak peek at “iTV,” which would eventually become Apple TV. But the star of that show was the addition of movies to the iTunes Store. Previously limited to music, the store’s new section had a grand total of 75 movies from Disney, Pixar, Touchstone, and Miramax in “near-DVD” 640x480 quality.

7 things you need to know about Apple’s new AirPods

Mac World - Fri, 2019-03-22 06:00

This week, Apple finally announced the sequel to the AirPods, its true wireless earbuds that have proven to be way more popular than anyone ever expected. After more than two years, Apple’s follow-on to the AirPods is...AirPods?

Okay, so the new second-generation AirPods aren’t exactly the true sequel we’ve all been hoping for. They still look and act like the AirPods we love. But they are substantially different than the first-generation model. Here are the most important things you should know.

[ Further reading: Best true wireless earbuds ] They’re not AirPods 2

The new AirPods are just that: new AirPods. They are not named AirPods 2, not billed as such on Apple’s site, and not sold separately from original AirPods. Apple still has only one AirPods page on its site, and it only sells the new model. If you buy AirPods from Apple, you will only get this new version. In fact, if you buy AirPods from another source, you may want to double-check that they’re not selling you the old model.

Data caps must die: How Google and Microsoft's cloud gaming ambitions could conquer ISP greed

PC World - Fri, 2019-03-22 05:52

Now that Google Stadia and Microsoft XCloud have been unveiled at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, it's safe to say cloud gaming has arrived, promising a future where content will be streamed to smartphones over high-speed Wi-Fi and 5G.

But if these services are to flourish, something else must die: the data caps ISPs impose upon most consumer Internet service plans. No one ever liked these limits except the ISPs. Now that major tech companies have some skin in the streaming game, data caps may finally have too many enemies to survive.

15 years later, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is finally happening

PC World - Thu, 2019-03-21 23:30

Good things come to those who wait, and in this case to those who waited a long time. Fifteen years after the release of one of the most beloved “cult” role-playing games ever made, it’s finally getting a sequel in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2.

And while publicly Paradox only showed a trailer at tonight’s reveal event, we were given a 30-minute behind-closed-doors demo at this week’s Game Developers Conference. Check out the trailer below, and then read on for more details.

Good night, good luck

Bloodlines 2 begins with a slaughter. On a foggy Seattle night, vampires swoop down from the rooftops in Pioneer Square and conduct a Mass Embrace, converting a group of humans into so-called “Thin Bloods.” It’s a dangerous and illegal act. Abandoned to the world, these bewildered and naive Thin Bloods threaten the Masquerade, the elaborate social pact that prevents humans from finding out about vampires.
