Macworld When Apple unveiled its first-ever smartwatch back in 2014, it’s fair to say that the world wasn’t exactly sure what it was for… and neither was Apple. In those early days, along with the fitness elements which would remain an enduring part of the product’s appeal, the company talked enthusiastically about sharing taps, sketches, and heartbeats with friends, which would not. It took time for users and third-party developers to teach Apple what they wanted from a smartwatch, and for the company to take that on board. Today, the Apple Watch is a mature and versatile product. It’s so versatile, indeed, that you may not be aware of some of its most useful capabilities. In this article, we’re going…
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 Fruit Union Suisse, the oldest and largest fruit farmer’s organization in Switzerland, has used a red apple with a white cross as its logo for most of its 111-year history. However, the group is now worried that it may have to change its logo because Apple, the tech giant, is trying to gain intellectual property rights over depictions of apples, the fruit, that it perceives as infringements on its trademarks. Les fruits suisses logo Gabriela Galindo for Wired: “We have a hard time understanding this, because it’s not like they’re trying to protect their bitten apple,” Fruit Union Suisse director Jimmy Mariéthoz says, referring to the company’s iconic logo. “Their objective here is really to own the rights to…
Illustration by Samar Haddad / The Verge When you read a review of a smartphone, you will usually be hit with a long list of screen specs: the display type, its dimensions and aspect ratio, its resolution in pixels, its HDR support (or lack of it), and its brightness, for example. Too often, it’s assumed that everyone understands the significance of each of these specs. So in this article, we’re going to focus on the basics of the refresh rate, which you’ll see in the specs of monitors and TVs as well. It tells you how many times the display is refreshed per second, typically measured in Hz (hertz). In other words, a 90Hz display refreshes itself 90 times a…
On Thursday, Mark Zuckerberg chimed in with his thoughts about the Apple Vision Pro, and they're oddly reminiscent of how Microsoft's Steve Ballmer slammed the iPhone for being useless and of no value to customers.On the one hand, it's good for the head of a rival company not to seem all that worried about an incoming competitive product. On the other hand, executives that have dismissed something of Apple's for the last 20 years has historically ended very poorly.Just ask Microsoft's former CEO, Steve Ballmer. Read more...
