Apple Arcade game ‘Butter Royale’ now available

Apple Arcade’s most recent addition is ‘Butter Royale‘, a multiplayer free-for-all shooter game that’s kid-friendly. The game has an online mode that pits 32 players against each other, and an offline mode that you can play with bots as your opponents. Instead of guns and bazookas, the toons wield kitchen tools that blast baguettes and sauces. Each match lasts no longer than 5 minutes in total.

Butter Royale on Apple Arcade

Developer Mighty Bear Games has put ‘Butter Royale’ at the 9+ age category, which means it’s safe for kids who are aged 9 and above and without needing adult supervision. Due to it being an Apple Arcade title, there’s no in-app purchases, ads or loot boxes. The game is compared to a hugely popular hit app ‘Fortnite’ due to its battle royale system.

Microsoft and Apple representatives will be attending a Carin Alliance meeting to push for a better way for patients to share and access their medical records. The event focuses on a proposed change by the Department of Health & Human Services, which will promote medical data inter-operability among healthcare providers.

CNBC reports that Apple Health Team representative Ricky Bloomfield will be attending the meeting. The push addresses the difficulty of patients switching healthcare systems and providers due to medical facilities still using CDs or fax to provide health records.

Apple is at the forefront of making the patient’s health data become more accessible. Recently, the Cupertino-based company has recently launched the Health Records...

The jobs website of Apple has received a new facelift, featuring a new video and a totally new look to try and captivate job seekers. One of the notable additions is the array of Apple logos the company has made as part of its October 18 event for the Mac.

Different logos come out whenever the ‘refresh’ button is tapped. The new video has an accompanying message to recruit Apple employee hopefuls who want to be part of the team.

Apple’s jobs site contains sections that outline jobs in retail locations, Apple’s philosophy, student opportunities, different Apple teams and a location overview where its retail stores are. Visitors can create a profile before going job hunting as well.

The spread of the deadly coronanus virus is accelerating, Chinese President Xi Jinping warned, after holding a special government meeting on the Lunar New Year public holiday.

The country is facing a "grave situation" told senior officials, according to state television. As noted by the BBC, the coronavirus has killed at least 41 people and infected some 1,400 since its discovery in the city of Wuhan. Travel restrictions have already hit several affected cities.

A jury in San Diego, California jury says Apple must pay WiLan $85 million for patent infringement to WiLan, as reported by Bloomberg. This is all part of an ongoing legal battle.

In August 2018, a federal jury in California awarded Canadian patent licensing company WiLan $145.1 million in damages against Apple for patent infringement. However, in January 2019 this was slashed to $10 million by a California jury.

The lawsuits concern Apple's alleged use of WiLAn's 4G and LTE technologies found in most of Apple's products. WiLan was established in 1992 to develop and commercialize technology that made low-cost, high-speed wireless networking a reality.

2020 is an important year for Apple. It marks ten years since the introduction of the iPad. Even though it’s just a part of Apple’s device lineup, its impact can be felt on macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. In K–12, it ushered in a new era of mobility. Schools went from cart-based computing to 1:1. With every student having a device, Wi-Fi networks went from something that was in conference rooms to needing to extend to every corner of the building. Overnight, IT departments had to become RF experts and figure out how to manage and deploy devices that couldn’t be connected to Active Directory and had minimal management tools. For my Making the Grade column this week, I want to consider the impact of ten years of iPad in K–12. more…

Good news for rumored ’Apple Glasses’: AR market...

This sounds promising for Apple's rumored augmented reality (AR) head-mounted display (HMD), the so-called "Apple Glasses”: the global AR market size is estimated to grow from $10.7 billion in 2019 to $72.7 billion by 2024, expanding at a compound annual growth rate [CAGR] of 46.6%, according to Research and Markets.

Apple’s device is expected to debut this year, 2021, or 2022, depending on which rumor you believe. Code-named T288, it will purportedly include an 8K display for each eye and may or may not be tethered to an iPhone. Other reports have claimed that the Apple Glasses could have a custom-build Apple chip and a dedicated operating system dubbed “rOS” for “reality operating system.”

Research and Markets says the most significant factor driving the growth of this market is the increase in the adoption of AR devices in the healthcare sector. AR devices are aiding surgeons...

Notable apps and updates, Jan. 20-25

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are this week’s picks.

macOS

True North Software has released Station 3.0, an update of their multilevel (hierarchical) launcher for macOS.

With nested folders, you can arrange items in Station in a way that fits your workflow. In version 3.0, scalability is increased through logical groupings thus increasing the sheer number of items that can be added to Station without having to shrink the launcher size.

Will Apple ditch the iPhone’s charging port?

Wires are fading away. The future is wireless. In 2016, Apple introduced the iPhone 7 which received severe criticism for its lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, very soon Android smartphone manufacturers followed and the headphone jack is quickly disappearing from smartphones. 

The next thing to disappear from smartphones is very well going to be the charging port or for those living in their 2000s, the data sync port. Rumours suggest that Apple has already begun experimenting with the idea of making a portless iPhone. The iPhone X and the iPhone 8 were the first iPhones to support wireless charging.

While wireless charging is still not as fast as wired charging, it is getting there. We would not be surprised if Apple ditches the lightning (charging) port on the next iPhone in favour of a completely portless iPhone. Having no ports also reduces the risks of thieves breaking into iPhones by connecting cables.

Should you buy a used iPhone 6S or iPhone 7?

Apple released the iPhone 7 in 2016 – it was basically a refreshed iPhone 6S with subtle improvements. It is difficult to see the difference between the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 7 but there are many differences that makes the iPhone 7 a much better option.

The iPhone 7 introduced the haptic feedback home button with the help of Apple’s Taptic Engine. In terms of design, the iPhone 7 ditched the ugly looking network antenna lines on the back of the iPhone for a much subtler looking network antenna lines. Also, the camera bump received a slight design change which actually makes it look much better than that of the iPhone 6S.

There is no doubt that the iPhone 6S had one of the worst battery backups of any iPhone. The iPhone 7 improved the case by a little and it also ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack which helped Apple save some space in the body of the iPhone.

Apple should refresh the design of the iMac

The current design of the iMac was released in 2009, making it more than ten years old. There is one difference though, the body of the current generation iMac is much thinner compared to the 2009 model. Apart from that, there is basically no other change in the design and when looked at from the front, both the machine look totally identical.

The iMac is an extremely good machine, first because it’s an All In One (AIO) machine, the design and construction of the body is top notch, the internals and the fabulous macOS. No other machine on the market can match the iMac; there is no Windows or Linux based All In One (AIO) which comes even a little close to the iMac.

The saying goes “if something ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. That is exactly the case with the iMac, why change any aspect of the machine if its an extremely good machine? Well, for innovation’s sake. It would make sense at-least if Apple was charging less money for the machine as there is nothing...

iMac Pro is the best machine for YouTubers

Apple released the iMac Pro in 2017 as a result of the severe backlash it received from its Pro customers. The company had begun to focus most of its efforts on the iPhone and the services it offers. Steve Jobs had said that the iPad was a post PC device and that it would push users to move from the traditional desktop/laptop to the new form factor (iPad).

The iPad is by no means a failed product line but is rather a product that is subtly successful. It’s not like the iPhone which people update almost every year or two whereas people buy an iPad and use it for 5 to 6 years. Similar is the case with the Mac, most people use their Mac machine for years as the products are of high quality.

The iMac Pro will be three years old this year. The Mac Pro is great but the iMac Pro offers a powerful computer in a simple All-In-One (AIO) package and is fairly cheaper compared to the Mac Pro. Of course, the Mac Pro is much more powerful compared to the iMac Pro and...

Furthermore, there will be episodic playlists and a book as well.

It looks like the rumors about Apple creating original podcasts for Apple TV+ content is true.

iMac Pro 2020: Intel Xeon W chips, faster RAM

Apple suffered a lot by ignoring the “Pro” community of its Mac users. For a while, the company had begun to focus mostly on the iPhone and the iPad. As a result, the Mac users felt left out and the company invited a couple of journalists to reassure its users that Apple was committed to the Mac.

Since then, Apple has released the iMac Pro, the Mac Pro, and also a 16” MacBook Pro which has a keyboard that actually works. As we enter into the year 2020, the question is whether Apple will update the iMac Pro or not?

The iMac Pro was a quick fix to the problem of not having a “Pro” grade computer in Apple’s Mac line-up. The company took years to release the 2019 Mac Pro and to have something on the market that was fast and powerful, Apple chose to release the iMac Pro. It’s a great machine, offering value for money and in some cases, it’s actually a better choice compared to the Mac Pro as its an All-In-One (AIO) machine.

36 Years Ago Today, Steve Jobs Unveiled the First...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from MacRumors: On January 24, 1984, former Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced the first Macintosh at Apple's annual shareholder's meeting in Cupertino, California, debuting the new computer equipped with a 9-inch black and white display, an 8MHz Motorola 68000 processor, 128KB of RAM, a 3.5-inch floppy drive, and a price tag of $2,495. The now iconic machine weighed in at a whopping 17 pounds and was advertised as offering a word processing program, a graphics package, and a mouse. At the time it was introduced, the Macintosh was seen as Apple's last chance to overcome IBM's domination of the personal computer market and remain a major player in the personal computer industry. Despite the high price at the time, which was equivalent to around $6,000 today, the Macintosh sold well, with Apple hitting 70,000 units sold by May 1984. The now iconic "1984" Super Bowl ad that Apple invested in and debuted days before the Macintosh was unveiled may have...

iPhone 12: Small notch, new design, compact size

We are eight months away from the release of the next iPhone. However, that does not stop the rumour mill from churning out interesting notes and the leaksters from leaking information. The next iPhone which will supposedly be named the iPhone 12 will bring a new design to the table, according to noted Apple analysts and famed leaksters.

The design of the iPhone 11 Pro is the same as the iPhone X and the iPhone XS, making it three year old design which of course the iPhone 12 won’t inherit. However, the question remains as to whether the design of the iPhone 12 be “completely fresh” or will it just be a tad different.

There is nothing drastically wrong with the iPhone X design language, it’s actually very premium looking with the notch. But as time passes, humans expect to see something fresh and one major request has been a “smaller notch”. The notch on the bezel less iPhones is quite large but it serves a purpose i.e pack the tech used for...

Will the iPhone’s mute switch survive in 2020?

The iPhone 11 Pro showed that Apple is not scared to do what’s right even if it requires ditching technologies it once said would be revolutionary. The company got rid of 3D Touch on the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max which are follow-ups from the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. By doing so, the company has been able to pack a larger battery in the phone and the results have been absolutely wonderful.

The biggest complaint with the iPhone was always the lackluster battery backup. However, the iPhone XR changed the scenario as the phone used a low resolution display and it did not use 3D Touch. The iPhone XR was a grand success and it helped Apple understand that people care more about the battery life than a feature that is not actually changing lives.

iPhone SE2 could launch in March 2020

The iPhone SE released in 2016 was one of the most popular phones in India for a very long time. The price of the phone was almost half of the selling price of the flagship iPhone of the time. The iPhone SE retailed for $399 whereas the iPhone 6S sold for $649 at the time. However, several price cuts to the iPhone SE during its tenure, made the phone a very compelling choice to a lot of people.

Apple did not make the iPhone SE just to capture the attention of the people who were looking for a cheap phone. But also to cater to the needs of the people who prefer to use a small phone. The iPhone 6S was a large phone compared to the iPhone 5S and the iPhone SE was the phone that reinvigorated the “compact phone” market.

It’s almost been four years since the iPhone SE was released and for years we have been hearing about Apple releasing a successor to the compact phone. However, it appears that the company is actually gearing up to release the second...

iPhone 9 powered by A13 Bionic chip to release soon

Apple sold a good number of iPhones in 2019, thanks to the iPhone 11 and the iPhone XR – the low cost options. The company appears to have been so impressed that it’s now considering adding an even cheaper model to its iPhone lineup.

The rumour mill suggests that Apple is soon to release the forgotten iPhone 9. Apple went directly from iPhone 7 to iPhone 8 and the roman number iPhone X in 2017, completely obliviating the iPhone 9. However, the company now appears to have a strategy in place to release the forgotten phone.

Low-cost is the key to certain markets

The iPhone SE released in 2016 was a big success, at least not immediately but after going through several price cuts, it turned out to be a very popular phone with the masses. Apple was able to pack the latest hardware for a low price by using an old “tried & tested” design which didn’t require the company to invest in R&D.

Similarly, Apple is reportedly using the design...

If a report from The Wall Street Journal is correct, Apple's TV Plus service that launched late last year has 10 million more subscribers than Disney Plus, which launched at a similar time but with access to almost every TV show and movie Disney owns the rights to. For comparison, Apple TV Plus launched with only 11 titles. Fast Company reports: According to the Wall Street Journal, an Ampere Analysis study found that Apple's fledgling Apple TV Plus service garnered an astounding 33.6 million subscribers in the U.S. in Q4 2019. That puts it as the third-most-popular streaming service in America. Here are the top five streaming video services according to the report: 1.) Netflix -- 61.3 million U.S. subscribers; 2.) Amazon Prime Video -- 42.2 million U.S. subscribers; 3.) Apple TV Plus -- 33.6 million U.S. subscribers; 4.) Hulu -- 31.8 million U.S. subscribers; 5.) Disney Plus -- 23.2 million U.S. subscribers.

Apple patent filing hints at radically redesigned...

I missed this one in my patent research yesterday, but AppleInsider notes that Apple has filed for a patent (number 20200026327) for “electronic device with glass housing member” that hints at a radical design of the iMac.

If the ideas proposed in the patent filing ever come to fruition — and Apple files for LOTS of ideas and designs that never see the light of day -- it could produce an all-in-one desktop made of a single (large) pane of glass. That single pane would include the display, keyboard, and two trackpads.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that many electronic devices include multiple distinct components in which input and output devices are provided. For example, a display enclosure may be separate from an input device or keyboard enclosure. Additionally, the enclosure of some traditional...

Hands-on: Anker PowerPort Atom III Slim is this year...

The second-half of 2019 saw Anker release several compelling charging solutions for today’s modern devices. We recently went hands-on with the brand’s 100W PowerPort Atom PD 4, which is arguably the best charger on the market in 2020. However, today we’re looking at something a bit more travel-friendly. Anker’s PowerPort Atom III Slim wall charger arrives with an uber-portable design and 30W USB-C charging speeds.

While there are plenty of portable chargers that push this type of USB-C output on the market today, Anker has nailed a few key elements on the Atom III Slim. First and foremost is the low-profile design that’s comparable to a credit card in size. Head below for a few quick hands-on thoughts and more.

Hardware review: Apple weighs in with Macintosh

New York Times:

Names, and their concomitant marketing strategy, aside, today’s launching of the Macintosh by Apple, unlike I.B.M.’s recent introduction of the rather unexceptional PCjr, presages a revolution in personal computing. Like all major innovations, this one entails a high risk of failure. Apple lost the first battle, begun with its $10,000 Lisa. The second assault is with a machine only a fourth the cost of its big sister and almost as versatile.

The Mac display makes all the other personal computer screens look like distorted rejects from a Cubist art school. With a 512-line horizontal by 342-line vertical, the display conveys an image that is refreshingly crisp and clear. The fundamental difference between the Mac and other personal computers is that the Macintosh is visually oriented rather than word oriented. You choose from a menu of commands by simply pressing the wandering mouse’s button rather than by using a number of control keys or by entering...

16-Inch MacBook Pro Takes on Lenovo X1 Extreme Gen 2

The new 16-inch MacBook Pro was well-received by Apple fans. But how does it compare to a Windows equivalent? AppleInsider tested it against the Lenovo X1 Extreme Gen 2 to find out.

When it comes to the actual machines themselves, it comes down to —as it often does —a Windows PC versus a Mac. The MacBook Pro won out by a hair in terms of raw performance and won handily in video encoding. It has more Thunderbolt 3 ports, a higher resolution vibrant display, and the superb hardware and software integration Apple is known for. The last one is a huge factor in why users are drawn to Apple in the first place.

Apple TV+ numbers: Bigger than Disney+ and Hulu,...

John Gruber, digging into this Wall Street Journal article:

But what caught my eye was this graphic halfway down the page, showing “Q4 2019 U.S. customer base by service”, sourced to Ampere Analysis. Their numbers, in millions:

  • Netflix: 61.3
  • Amazon Prime: 42.2
  • Apple TV+: 33.6
  • Hulu: 31.8
  • Disney+: 23.2

At first blush, Disney+ being behind Hulu is shocking. But then:

It’s worth noting that Disney+ didn’t launch until November 12, halfway through the quarter; I expect Disney+ to eventually take the number one spot on this list.

Absolutely agree. I do expect Disney+ to roar into the top spot in the next quarterly report.

That said, I think this is about customer onboarding strategy for the new players. Apple’s approach is a logical masterstroke....

‘WSJ’ says Apple TV+ has more subscribers than Hulu...

The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple TV+ has 33.6 million subscribers, compared to 31.8 million for Hulu and 23.2 million for Disney+. Of course, a lot of those subscribers got the $4.99/month streaming service for free with the purchase of a new Mac, iPad, or iPhone.

We’ll see how many hang around after their free year's subscription is up. However, I expect it will be plenty if Apple continues to add new content and keeps the price reasonable.

And Apple TV+ still has a long way to go to catch Netflix (61.3 subscribers) and Amazon Prime (42.2 subscribers). However, 33.6 million subscribers in less than three months is nothing to sneeze at.
