In macOS Sonoma, Apple has changed the widgets landscape. No longer do widgets have to be hidden offscreen and largely forgotten in the Notifications Center panel. Now they live right on your desktop – and they're interactive, too. It's worth noting from the off that widgets can still be parked in Notification Center, but now they can also be dragged out onto the desktop. The first widget can be placed anywhere, then Apple provides placement guidance for subsequent widgets by displaying a widget-shaped outline, indicating where they can be snapped into position in relation to the others. Alternatively, if you right-click on an empty space on the desktop, the menu that appears includes a new "Edit Widgets..." option. Selecting this…
Image: Apple The Apple Vision Pro may come equipped with settings specifically for plane rides. When digging into the first beta of visionOS, MacRumors found that the device’s operating system may have a Travel Mode option that you can use during a flight. Several text strings uncovered by MacRumors indicate that you’ll be able to turn on the feature, with one noting, “If you’re on an airplane, you’ll need to keep Travel Mode on to continue using your ‌Apple Vision Pro‌.” It also prompts the user to “remain stationary in Travel Mode,” likely to avoid wearers flailing around while wearing the headset and disturbing whoever’s sitting next to them. Other lines of text in visionOS state that “some awareness features…
Macworld We’ve been waiting almost six years since the launch of the Studio 3 headphones in 2017, but it looks like Apple is finally ready to launch a new set of Beats over-ears. The Beats Studio Pro, first teased in images and references in the iOS 16.5 and macOS 13.4 release candidates last month, has now shown up in an FCC filing, a step which generally means a commercial release is imminent. MacRumors spotted the listing Tuesday, noting that such filings generally appear a few weeks to a month before a product is released. New Apple phones appeared in the database on September 6, 2021, for example, and the iPhone 13 was announced on September 14. The Beats Studio Buds,…
Macworld Wireless headphones are essentially the standard now, with Bluetooth not only being convenient but Apple removing the audio jack on the iPhone range. For most people, the sound quality difference to wired isn’t noticeable anyway. The market is huge, but here are the best wireless headphones we’ve tested for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Macs. If you do want a wired connection some of these do offer it in addition to Bluetooth, but we also have a round up of the best wired headphones. And if you’re wondering why the AirPods Max don’t appear on this list, rest assured that we gave them due consideration – but while audio quality is exceptional, their very high price and ill-judged case…
Macworld In a bizarre legal tussle, a 111-year-old fruit farming association is worried that it will have to change its logo because Apple is seeking trademark rights to pictures of apples. The Fruit Union Suisse currently uses as its logo an image of a red apple with a white cross on the righthand side, in an echo of the Swiss flag, and has done for most of its long history. It’s worth noting that the apple in the logo has a plain stalk rather than a leaf, and does not have a bite taken out of the side, so the similarities with Apple’s famous logo are minimal; nor is there much chance that customers are likely to get the two…
The Mac Studio remains the top choice for professionals who need a powerful but compact desktop computer. There is a new Mac Studio. It looks almost exactly like last year’s Mac Studio — so similar, in fact, that I have had to put Post-it notes on the two units we have in our office in order to tell them apart. It remains a remarkably compact, very Apple-looking pro-level workstation. It also remains effectively not upgradable at all, which means you need to be very careful about what you select at purchase. It has basically the same ports that the last one had: a pair of USB-C ports (Thunderbolt 4 on the Ultra) and an SDXC reader in the front, and…
