  • Apple TV+ needs a better hook if it expects us to pay for it


    Apple TV+ will have couple dozen exclusive movies and shows, but still needs a raison d'être.
  • Apple Card vs Citi, Chase, and Capital One: Is Apple's new credit card as good as it seems?


    Apple might not be turning into a bank, but it wants to handle your money. But while we heard a lot about financial health, interest rates, and fees on the stage during Monday’s announcement of the Apple Card, the hard numbers behind Apple's new cash-back rewards credit card built on top of Apple Pay were notably absent. Though Apple made quick references to zero fees and cash-back percentages while taking digs at other cards, much of the reveal focused on simplicity, security, and ease of use.

    Apple trumpeted the Apple Card as a counter to competing credit cards that offer point-based rewards for things like miles and gift cards, but it's not like the Apple Card is completely unique in offering cash. Several other credit cards offer similar cash-back benefits too. So where does the Apple Card differ? We dug into the nitty-gritty details of cash-back percentages, interest rates, and fees and crunched the numbers to see how the Apple Card will stack up against the most popular cash-back cards out there.

  • Apple's services event laid the groundwork for a long and difficult transition away from the iPhone


    As it turns out, it’s not time to play the music or light the lights. It’s not time to put on makeup or dress up right. It’s not actually “show time” at all.

    Apple unveiled several services at its star-studded event Monday, and they all have one thing on common: they’re not ready yet. The only service that’s available to try out this month is Apple News+, and a quick scan of the titles available reveals that the majority of them haven’t been formatted to take advantage of the Apple News Format, so you’re basically getting PDFs. As far as the other services Apple announced, you’re going to have to wait:

  • With fan boys like these: Not charged about AirPods


    New AirPods are hitting the streets this week (particularly if they fall out of your ears) causing no small amount of excitement from this furry observer, but not everyone is as impressed.

  • BeatsX Earphones review: These Bluetooth earbuds are an ace for bass


    It’s no wonder that Apple’s AirPods are a hit with many iOS users. They’ve got awesome battery life, a brilliantly designed charging case, and you can almost pair them with iPhones and iPads in your sleep.

    But not every iOS user is a fan, thanks in part to their decidedly unsubtle design. While they produce decent-sounding audio, AirPods provide almost no passive noise cancellation, and so they allow any surrounding noise to interfere with your enjoyment of music and podcasts. Frustratingly, their rigid plastic ear caps make them uncomfortable and sometimes unwearable for people who don’t have Apple’s "ideal" ear shapes.

    If any of these issues have kept you from buying AirPods, the BeatsX earphones could be the alternative you’ve been longing for. With their lower price, urbane design, and Apple’s ownership of Beats itself, the BeatsX manage to deliver many of the features that Apple’s AirPods so desirable.

  • How Apple Arcade could make Apple a major player in gaming


    Apple’s new gaming service is called Apple Arcade, which you, O loyal Macworld reader, may recognize as the name I use for my column on Mac and iOS gaming. I suppose we can effectively declare the column dead.

    It’s a cool name, though, and what Apple showed us on stage at its “Show time” event looks like a cool service. Beginning sometime in the fall, you’ll be able to pay Apple an unspecified subscription fee that grants access to around 100 “new and exclusive” games. None of the games will have in-app purchases, and they will only be playable on iOS devices and Macs. All of the games will be accessible offline.

  • The Apple TV+ video streaming service: 8 burning questions


    At long last, Apple on Monday took the wraps off of its new TV service. It’ll be called Apple TV+ and will include a variety of shows from the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams, Kevin Durant, and Rupert Grint. Several of the major players were on hand at the event to outline their vision, and Apple basically billed the service as the greatest collection of talent ever assembled on television.

    But after the songs, standing ovations, and flowery rhetoric was complete, we didn’t learn much about Apple’s new service that we didn’t already know. It may be the first time Apple has confirmed that it is indeed working on its own original content, but that was hardly a secret. Apple didn’t actually answer any of the questions we have about Apple TV+, which are many. For example...

  • The new Apple TV app and Apple TV Channels: 9 things you need to know


    After months of speculation, rumors, and leaks, Apple has finally taken the wraps off its plans for the future of TV, and it comes in two parts: There’s a new subscription service coming this fall called Apple TV+, and an overhaul of the Apple TV app, coming this spring.

    We've covered Apple TV+ in a separate article, but here’s what you need to know about the new TV app, and the way Apple hopes it will change streaming and become the new destination for cord cutters.

    A new design, but not many new features

    Though the TV app has a newly refreshed design, you’ll recognize many features from the current app. The Up Next section—which shows a list of next episodes for shows you’ve watched, as well as TV shows or movies you stopped in the middle off—is still there. So are the sections for TV Shows, Movies, Sports, Kids, and your Library of shows or movies you own.

  • The Apple Card may be the most revolutionary announcement Apple made at its 'Show time' event


    We might not have gotten a new iPhone or AirPower at Monday’s "Show time" event, but Apple did unveil a new product: It’s called Apple Card, and it's sure to shake things up.

    Building on the success of Apple Pay, which will be available in more than 40 countries by the end of 2019, Apple Card—which consists of both a service and a sleek, thin, titanium card—dispenses with the usual confusion around credit cards to simplify and streamline financial transactions, as well as create an experience unlike any other card on the planet.

    It just might be the most revolutionary announcement Apple made on Monday. Apple said that by the end of the year Apple Pay will be responsible for more than 10 billion transactions since its inception, but Apple Card promises to be more than just another tab in your digital wallet. It’s smarter, simpler, friendlier, and more fiscally transparent than any credit card out there—including Apple’s own Barclaycard Visa with Apple Rewards.

  • It's showtime for big deals on the iPad Pro and MacBook Air at Amazon


    Apple is holding one of its big events today, and we’ll get to see some of the flashiest new ideas from the folks in Cupertino. But today’s also a good time to pay attention to some not-so-new stuff, as you’ll find good deals for both the new iPad Pros and MacBook Air over at Amazon.

    First off, Amazon is offering big discounts on several configurations of the new iPad Pros with Wi-Fi. I admire Apple’s new tablet for its transition from Touch ID to Face ID (which I find well-suited for tablets) and its ability to wirelessly charge the second-generation Apple Pencil (which you’ll have to buy separately). You can read more about it in my review from November. Here’s what’s on offer:

  • IVPN review: The WireGuard protocol made easy for Mac users


    Hang around in the world of VPNs long enough, and you’ll inevitably hear about Wireguard, a new VPN protocol that’s supposed to deliver fast transfer speeds and be easy to implement. To try it out, however, you need to be running a Unix-y system such as macOS or Linux, find a VPN service supplying WireGuard, and then get it up and running via the command line.

    That all changed when IVPN implemented WireGuard in 2018 as a beta option in its macOS app. IVPN warns that the protocol is still under development, and you shouldn’t use WireGuard “except for testing or in situations where security is not critical.” Nonetheless, the protocol is available and it’s easy to use, so we gave it a try to see how it works, and what IVPN can offer.

  • Apple’s iPad, iMac, and AirPod launches weren’t just a surprise, they were a smart strategy shift


    I expected “one more thing” yesterday, and I was bummed when I didn’t get it. Sure, I was disappointed, but my anticipation for another hardware refresh only proved that Apple’s experiment with dribbling out modest product releases is working.

    On each of the first three days of this work week, Apple dropped updated versions of existing products with little of its typical fanfare or event theatrics. It began with the iPad mini and iPad Air on Monday and then progressed to the iMac on Tuesday and the AirPods on Wednesday. Nobody would call these earthshaking updates. Certainly none would have made the crowds ooh and ahh during a keynote. You could even argue they were disappointing on some level.

    Apple calls its next event “It’s show time”—a name that strongly hints it’ll highlight the rumored streaming TV service we’ve heard about for a while now.
