Macworld For a product that isn’t debuting until 2024, Apple has said a lot about the Vision Pro, its mixed reality headset. Apple spent nearly an hour in the WWDC keynote discussing it. It has rolled out developer tools for visionOS, which has given us even more clarity about what visionOS can and can’t do. And yet I remain firmly convinced that Apple hasn’t told us the whole story. The WWDC keynote was the time to make a first impression–but there’s half a year to go before the final story is told. As a result, Apple emphasized the features of the device that it felt would best represent the device. It emphasized the fact that it’s an augmented-reality product that…

In ‌iOS 17‌ beta 2, it now reads "Funds are typically available for withdrawal by the 5th business day" when a transfer is made. Prior to the beta, it said that transfers "typically take 1-3 business days to complete." The 1-3 day wording still exists in iOS 16. The transfer time clarification comes after a number of complaints from Apple Card owners who opted into the Savings account when it became available. Apple Savings account users have had issues with long wait times when attempting to withdraw funds. A June report from The Wall…
Macworld Threads is a new app from Meta made as a text-based offshoot of Instagram. If that sounds like yet another competitor cashing in on the Twitter turmoil like Bluesky, Mastodon, or Post, you’ve got the right idea. The existence of the app and service was first revealed a few months ago and has been in testing with lots of celebrities, brands, and influencers. You can download the Threads app from the App Store, where a preorder placeholder has been available for a couple of days.
