By | June 3rd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The WWDC 2019 keynote is over, and we've seen a lot of what we were expecting – along with plenty we weren't. Apple's big mid-year software event had a lot to show, and we wouldn't blame you for missing an announcement here or there.

Now that the dust has settled, we've listed our ten favorite little things that Apple rattled off in its very long presentation. Kudos if you heard them all the first time around!

1. iTunes is now 3 apps (sort of)

As was rumored, Apple indeed retired iTunes.… Read the full article

The Neoteric Listener – The Gold Note IS-1000 Integrated Amplifier and Streamer

By | June 3rd, 2019|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , , , |

Audio is all about good times. At least, it should be. Yes, I’m like everyone else in this silly hobby, poring over the mysteries of phono cable capacitance or trying to squeeze gear the size of a Mennonite hope chest into a room too small for much hope to fit. Still, at the risk of losing my Audiophile Animal ranking, I know that almost all of us yearn for a simple solution to listen to music as it should be heard.… Read the full article

Mac Pro 2019 first look: release date, price and specs

By | June 3rd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Finally, Apple revealed the new Mac Pro 2019 at WWDC 2019, complete with the modern high-end hardware that creatives and professionals have been demanding from Apple’s most powerful computer for years. 

The new Mac Pro 2019 has up to a 28-core Intel Xeon processor, on top of 1.5TB of 6-channel ECC system memory, which means that you’ll be hard pressed to run into any task that's too demanding for the new Mac Pro.

We got a first glimpse at the new Mac desktop successor to the Mac Pro 2013, and you’ll be happy to know that this model allows for modular upgrades, just in case having up to a 28-core Xeon processor isn’t enough for you down the line.… Read the full article

Pro Display XDR – first look: Apple’s new monitor is not for mere mortals

By | June 3rd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Let's just preface this by saying that, unsurprisingly, we're not professional creatives that need a monitor with exquisitive color reproduction and high brightness for HDR playback.

So, with that in mind, it should hopefully contextualise what we're saying about Apple's Pro Display XDR, the 32-inch LCD monitor to be paired with the new Mac Pro, and seems to be hugely capable.

Like so many Apple products, it's about the premium gloss applied on the top – but with the Cupertino brand's professional equipment it can be hard to give a true feel of what the technology can achieve in the hands of the right people.… Read the full article

Is Apple dumbing down our Macs by putting iPhone apps on them?

By | June 3rd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

At WWDC 2019, Apple gave us our first official glimpse of macOS 10.15 Catalina, and as we expected, the new operating system for Macs and MacBooks will be able to run iOS apps designed for iPhones and iPad, thanks to Project Catalyst.

The idea is that it will be easy for developers to put their apps on iOS devices and macOS computers – as they’ll only have to create the source code for a single app – rather than having to create two completely separate apps.… Read the full article
