ECG app and irregular heart rhythm notification available today on Apple Watch

Mac OS vom 06.12.2018 um 14:57 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
ECG app and irregular heart rhythm notification available today on Apple Watch<br/>Starting today, the ECG app on Apple Watch Series 4 marks the first direct-to-consumer product that enables customers to take an electrocardiogram right from their wrist, capturing heart rhythm in a moment when they experience symptoms like a rapid or skipped heart beat and helping to provide critical data to physicians. The irregular rhythm notification feature on Apple Watch can now also occasionally check heart rhythms in the background and send a notification if an irregular heart rhythm that appears to be atrial fibrillation (AFib) is identified. Apple worked with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a number of years to receive De Novo classification for the ECG app and the irregular heart rhythm notification, making the features available over the counter. <br/>Available today as part of a free update to watchOS 5.1.2, the ECG app<sup>1</sup> and irregular heart rhythm notification feature<sup>2</sup> will help users identify signs of AFib, the most common form of irregular rhythm. When left untreated, AFib is one of the leading conditions that can result in stroke, the second most common cause of death around the world. The CDC estimates AFib can affect up to two percent of the younger population and nine percent of those 65 years and older in the US. <br/>“Apple Watch has helped so many people around the world and we are humbled that it has become such an important part of our customers’ lives,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “With the release of these heart features, Apple Watch takes the next step in empowering people with more information about their health.” <br/>“We are confident in the ability of these features to help users have more informed conversations with their physicians,” said Sumbul Desai, MD, Apple’s vice president of Health. “With the ECG app and irregular rhythm notification feature, customers can now better understand aspects of their heart health in a more meaningful way.” <br/>ECG App <br/>New electrodes built into the back crystal and Digital Crown on Apple Watch Series 4 work together with the ECG app to enable customers to take an ECG similar to a single-lead reading. To take an ECG recording at any time or following an irregular rhythm notification, users launch the new ECG app on Apple Watch Series 4 and hold their finger on the Digital Crown. As the user touches the Digital Crown, the circuit is completed and electrical signals across their heart are measured. After 30 seconds, the heart rhythm is classified as either AFib, sinus rhythm or inconclusive. All recordings, their associated classifications and any noted symptoms are stored securely in the Health app on iPhone. Users can share a PDF of the results with physicians. <br/>Irregular Rhythm Notification <br/>Using the optical heart sensor in Apple Watch Series 1 or later, the irregular rhythm notification feature will occasionally check the user’s heart rhythm in the background for signs of an irregular heart rhythm that appears to be AFib and alerts the user with a notification if an irregular rhythm is detected on five rhythm checks over a minimum of 65 minutes. <br/>“The role that technology plays in allowing patients to capture meaningful data about what’s happening with their heart, right when it’s happening, like the functionality of an on-demand ECG, could be significant in new clinical care models and shared decision making between people and their healthcare providers,” said Nancy Brown, CEO of the American Heart Association, the world’s leading voluntary organization focused on heart and brain health. “At the American Heart Association, we are committed to educating and empowering people to be proactive in all areas of their heart health and general well-being.” <br/>“The idea that wearables can be used by both patients and their health care providers to manage and improve heart health holds promise and should also be approached with caution to ensure information and data are used responsibly and in concert with other evidence-based tools and guidelines,” said C. Michael Valentine, MD, FACC, president of the American College of Cardiology. “The ACC, through its focus on innovation, is committed to exploring ways that new technologies can optimize patient care and outcomes.” <br/>The ECG app’s ability to accurately classify an ECG recording into AFib and sinus rhythm was validated in a clinical trial of around 600 participants. Rhythm classification from a gold standard 12-lead ECG by a cardiologist was compared to the rhythm classification of a simultaneously collected ECG from the ECG app. The study found the ECG app on Apple Watch demonstrated 98.3 percent sensitivity in classifying AFib and 99.6 percent specificity in classifying sinus rhythm in classifiable recordings. In the study, 87.8 percent of recordings could be classified by the ECG app. <br/>The irregular rhythm notification feature was recently studied in the Apple Heart Study. With over 400,000 participants, the Apple Heart Study was the largest screening study on atrial fibrillation ever conducted, also making it one of the largest cardiovascular trials to date. A subset of the data from the Apple Heart Study was submitted to the FDA to support clearance of the irregular rhythm notification feature. In that sub-study, of the participants that received an irregular rhythm notification on their Apple Watch while simultaneously wearing an ECG patch, 80 percent showed AFib on the ECG patch and 98 percent showed AFib or other clinically relevant arrhythmias. <br/>To enable these new heart features, customers will be taken through an onscreen setup flow that includes details about who can use these features, what the features can and cannot do, what results users may get, how to interpret those results and clear instructions for what to do if users are feeling symptoms that require immediate medical attention. <br/>watchOS 5.1.2 will be available for download today. <br/><sup>1</sup> This feature is available on Apple Watch Series 4 in the US, Puerto Rico, Guam and US Virgin Islands, and requires iPhone 5s or later on iOS 12.1.1.

The HIV-positive caregivers working to end AIDS in Africa

Mac OS vom 29.11.2018 um 18:56 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
The HIV-positive caregivers working to end AIDS in Africa<br/>Dotty Nyambok is an HIV Counselor at the Embakasi Health Centre in Nairobi, Kenya. She is halfway through her list of patients when two girls walk into her tent. <br/>Helima, 18, is here because she suspects she’s contracted HIV from her boyfriend, and her friend Winny has come to support her. <br/>Dotty begins a familiar ritual: She unwraps a sterilized needle, pricks Helima’s finger and drops blood onto a test strip. Then she sets the timer. 15:00, 14:59, 14:58… <br/>While they wait, Dotty asks Helima what she thinks will happen if she tests positive. With grim confidence, she answers, she will die. <br/>That’s when Dotty shares something of herself. It’s information she reveals when she senses someone is in desperate need of kindness and hope. <br/>“I’m HIV-positive,” Dotty says. “So when you have HIV you will continue living, because you will take your medication.” <br/>The girls exchange surprised, shy smiles in the tent at Embakasi, a facility whose HIV treatment services have been supported by Apple’s (RED) partnership since 2012. <br/>Since its founding by Bono and Bobby Shriver, (RED) has raised more than $600 million to support the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, $200 million of which has come from its partnership with Apple, the organization’s largest corporate donor. <br/>Last year, Kenya had 53,000 new cases of HIV. Young women are infected at twice the rate as young men. As high as these numbers seem, they’re a vast improvement from years ago. <br/>In 2000, a staggering 9.3 percent of all adults in Kenya were HIV-positive. At the same time, because the drugs were in short supply, World Health Organization guidelines stipulated that lifesaving antiretrovirals (ARVs) should only be administered once a patient’s CD4 count, which measures immune system health, fell below a very low mark. It meant patients had to be extremely sick to access ARVs, and for many, that was too late. <br/>5:27, 5:26, 5:25… <br/>That grim landscape was recent history when Dotty discovered she was pregnant in 2007, at age 19. During a prenatal visit, a clinician told Dotty she was HIV-positive, and pointed her to a treatment clinic two hours away. There was no counseling, no compassion, and no follow-up. <br/>The experience left her traumatized and in denial — she didn’t tell anyone about her status and didn’t seek treatment. <br/>Dotty’s son died in her arms at just six weeks old. He was buried in a cooking oil box — the smallest they could find. <br/>A few months later, Dotty went to the Embakasi Health Centre. <br/>It’s one of thousands of facilities in Kenya and seven other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa that began receiving support from the Global Fund in 2002. <br/>The Global Fund has helped to radically change access to HIV treatment, and provides 17.5 million people with ARVS — now available from the moment they test positive. As a result, Kenya has seen a 52 percent drop in new HIV infections since 2000. As of last year, just 4.8 percent of all adults were HIV-positive. <br/>“I decided to do counseling because I really don’t want what happened to me to repeat itself.” <br/>In 2009, Embakasi opened a special Comprehensive Care Clinic (CCC) for HIV patients that distributes ARVs, made possible largely from Global Fund grants. <br/>“The Global Fund and (RED) have made a huge impact in the lives of HIV-positive patients,” says Robina Anene Muli, who runs the Embakasi Health Centre. “Especially when it comes to testing kits, ARVs and other drugs — they provide 80 percent of our supplies and funding.” <br/>3:13, 3:12, 3:11… <br/>During her first year at Embakasi, Dotty was introduced to the Mentor Mothers, a group of peer educators who are HIV-positive and have given birth to HIV-negative babies after taking ARVs. The group was created as part of the CCC expansion, with Global Fund grants. <br/>After a few months of treatment, Dotty found out she was pregnant again. <br/>On November 7th, 2009, Dotty gave birth to a healthy baby boy. “Now I had a reason to live,” she says. “Because of Morgan. He saved my life.” <br/>When Morgan was six months old, Dotty applied to be a Mentor Mother at Embakasi. <br/>“I decided to do counseling because I really don’t want what happened to me to repeat itself,” says Dotty. “My purpose is to touch a heart — and if I diagnose someone I feel like we are then attached.” <br/>In many facilities, HIV-positive peer educators like Dotty are changing the way people live with HIV. <br/>“Peer educators are a vital piece of the most effective HIV treatment programs,” says Luisa Engel, Chief Impact Officer at (RED). “Their work ensures lifesaving information reaches the people who need it most, and they act as a powerful force against stigma.” <br/>Three years ago, Dotty started a new role at Embakasi, as an HIV Testing Counselor. Sometimes she takes an HIV test in front of her patients, to prove she has the virus and to show them that a full and vibrant life is possible. <br/>“I would like to see a different perception about HIV,” says Dotty. “And that’s what I hope to do when I disclose my status.” <br/>:03, :02, :01… <br/>Back in Dotty’s tent, Helima’s results are ready. She places the test strip in between examples of what a positive and negative result look like. <br/>“Tell me what you see and what it means,” says Dotty. <br/>“Negative,” says Helima. In an instant, the tension dissolves. After a chat about how to protect themselves, Dotty sends the girls off with warm goodbyes. <br/>On Dotty’s walk home that night, she picks up some meat to cook for dinner on the hotplate in the one-room apartment she and Morgan, now nine years old, share. <br/>After dinner, at 7:58 p.m., an alarm on Dotty’s phone sounds. It signals the start of a ritual they have repeated every night for the last two years — ever since Morgan was old enough to understand his mom’s illness. <br/>Morgan walks over to a small dresser, pulls out a bottle of pills and carefully taps one out. He hands the ARV to his mother, who swallows it with water. <br/>These are the frontlines of the war against AIDS in Africa. And this is how it is won, one expression of love, one act of kindness, at a time. <br/>Press Contact<br/>Apple Media Helpline,[email protected],(408) 974-2042<br/>

Apple launches app development program to support women entrepreneurs

Mac OS vom 26.11.2018 um 22:32 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
Apple launches app development program to support women entrepreneurs<br/>New Entrepreneur Camp Offers Immersive Technology Lab and More for Female App Developers who are Founders and Entrepreneurs<br/>Cupertino, California — Apple today announced the launch of the all-new Entrepreneur Camp, a first-of-its-kind initiative designed to create new opportunities for app-driven businesses owned or led by women through an intensive technology lab, specialized support and ongoing mentoring. <br/>To be eligible for the program, applying app-driven businesses&nbsp;must be female-founded, co-founded or led and have at least one woman on the development team — as well as a working app or prototype and desire to leverage Apple technologies to benefit their mission. The program’s pilot session, beginning in January 2019, is now <a href="https://developer.apple.com/entrepreneur-camp/" target="_blank">accepting applications</a>.&nbsp; <br/>“Apple is committed to helping more women assume leadership roles across the tech sector and beyond,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re proud to help cultivate female leadership in the app development community with the new Apple Entrepreneur Camp, and we’re inspired both by the incredible work that’s already happening, and what’s sure to come.”&nbsp; <br/>“This is a program that matters,” said Gina Bianchini, investor and founder and CEO of Mighty Networks. “The new Entrepreneur Camp says Apple wants to invest its expertise in a different, richer, more diverse range of app developers and product experts in a meaningful way, and that is a big deal for the industry.” <br/>Entrepreneur Camp will hold sessions on a quarterly basis, with a cohort of 20 app companies accepted for each round. The pilot session will include 10 companies. <br/>Once accepted, each company will have the opportunity to send three attendees to Cupertino, California for a two-week immersive program at Apple’s campus, including one-on-one code-level assistance with Apple engineers, sessions on design, technology and App Store marketing, as well as ongoing guidance and support from an Apple Developer representative. Each participating company will also receive two tickets to the following year's WWDC. <br/>Female entrepreneurs continue to face challenges obtaining funding, training and support in the VC landscape — receiving $1.9 billion in funding in 2017 compared to $83.1 billion for men. Despite such obstacles, women-owned businesses are growing more than two times faster than the US national average, with women-led tech startups delivering a 35 percent higher return on investment than tech startups led by men.  <br/>For more information on Apple Entrepreneur Camp or to apply, visit <a href="https://developer.apple.com/entrepreneur-camp/" target="_blank">developer.apple.com/entrepeneur-camp</a>.  <br/>Apple revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today, Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. Apple’s four software platforms — iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud. Apple’s more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to leaving the world better than we found it. <br/>Press Contacts<br/>Katie Clark Alsadder,Apple,[email protected],(408) 974-9976<br/>Stephanie Saffer,Apple, [email protected] ,(408) 974-5160 <br/>Apple Media Helpline,[email protected],(408) 974-2042<br/>

Final Cut Pro X introduces third-party workflow extensions

Mac OS vom 15.11.2018 um 19:00 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
Final Cut Pro X introduces third-party workflow extensions<br/>Update Brings Extensions from Frame.io, Shutterstock and CatDV, Plus Other Features Including Batch Sharing, Video Noise Reduction and Comparison Viewer<br/>The latest update to Final Cut Pro X, available today on the Mac App Store, introduces workflow extensions that enable professional video editors to use third-party apps and services directly within the editing interface. <br/>Workflow extensions match the look of Final Cut Pro and integrate tightly into the app, allowing editors to drag media into Final Cut Pro libraries, sync playback between extensions and timeline, add clip markers and more. These extensions make it easy to use popular tools that enhance post-production including review and approval with Frame.io, stock footage browsing and purchasing with Shutterstock and media asset management with CatDV. Workflow extensions can be downloaded free from the Mac App Store starting today. Additional third-party extensions for Final Cut Pro will be available on an ongoing basis. <br/>The new version of Final Cut Pro also includes a number of features that are highly requested from pro video editors. Batch sharing allows a user to export multiple clips or projects in one step and is especially useful when transcoding dailies on set for quick turnaround or delivering multiple versions of a project. A new Comparison Viewer window lets editors view reference images while color grading to ensure a consistent look across their project. <br/>A new floating timecode window makes it easy for video editors and others in the editing room to follow along by displaying color-coded clip names, roles, project timecode and source timecode in a customizable, resizable display. High-quality video noise reduction minimizes artifacts in low light or archival footage. Editors can now create and deliver closed captions in SRT format or choose to burn them into their video for compatibility with a wide range of video websites. And improved marquee selection makes it quick to select individual clips or the entire secondary storyline which saves valuable time for common edit operations. <br/>Motion, the powerful motion graphics companion to Final Cut Pro, also gets an update today that adds a comprehensive set of color grading tools including color wheels, color curves, hue/saturation curves and custom LUTs. These tools match the professional color correction features found in Final Cut Pro and can now be used in Motion to fine-tune the look of titles and motion graphics. New filters in Motion include a customizable comic effect that instantly turns any image or video into a color or monochrome comic book illustration. And the new tiny planet filter lets motion graphics artists transform 360-degree video into beautiful spherical animations that can be keyframed to change over time. <br/>Compressor, the advanced encoding companion to Final Cut Pro, moves to a new 64-bit engine that takes advantage of all the memory in a user’s Mac for improved performance when encoding high resolution, high frame rate video. Compressor maintains support for 32-bit codecs, so editors can continue to work with key legacy formats.

Apple Champs-Élysées to open on famed Parisian avenue this Sunday

Mac OS vom 15.11.2018 um 10:32 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
Apple Champs-Élysées to open on famed Parisian avenue this Sunday<br/>Paris — Apple today announced its latest retail location, Apple Champs-Élysées, paying tribute to Paris’s rich history and creativity. Housed in a Haussmann-era apartment building, the inner courtyard has been transformed into Apple’s grandest Forum, dedicated to free Today at Apple sessions. <br/>Apple offers more than 18,000 Today at Apple sessions around the world every week, focused on creative passions like photography, music, coding and design. In the first week, Apple Champs-Élysées will host sessions with popular musicians, filmmakers, animators and more. <br/>“The energy in Paris is electric and it will be one of our premier cities for Today at Apple,” said Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail. “I hope that everyone who visits Apple Champs-Élysées will be inspired to unlock their creative curiosity and learn something new.” <br/>A careful blend of historic and modern architecture, the store design honors the building’s past while introducing modern spaces. The facade and entryway have been meticulously restored and the Burgundy stone of the exterior has been carried throughout the building. French oak parquet floors line the upper levels, which aim to revive the building's original spirit by restoring the detailing and interconnected spaces of the quintessential Parisian apartment. <br/>“Working within a historic Parisian building is a great responsibility and a phenomenal opportunity,” said Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design officer. “Our first priority was to honor the history of the building, while thoughtfully updating it to create spaces both grand and intimate. The carefully interweaving layers are warm and light filled, celebrating the timeless spirit of the city.” <br/>Several of the design features also serve an environmental purpose. A sculptural roof light covers the courtyard, providing sunlight to the space below and generating renewable energy with integrated photovoltaic panels. An integrated rainwater collection system provides water for the bathrooms, trees and green walls. Like all of Apple’s facilities, Apple Champs-Élysées is powered by 100 percent renewable energy. <br/>More than 330 employees, including over 100 new hires, will welcome customers when the store opens Sunday. The group represents 15 nationalities and speaks 17 languages, with more than 200 employees joining from other Apple stores in Paris and around the world. Apple Champs-Élysées opens Sunday at 12 p.m. <br/>Apple revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today, Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. Apple’s four software platforms — iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud. Apple’s more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to leaving the world better than we found it. <br/>Press Contacts<br/>Nick Leahy,Apple, [email protected], (408) 862-5012<br/>Abby Reisinger,Apple,[email protected],(669) 227-3527<br/>Apple Media Helpline,[email protected],(408) 974-2042<br/>

Blind veteran catches second wave with a surfboard and iPhone

Mac OS vom 09.11.2018 um 16:00 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
Blind veteran catches second wave with a surfboard and iPhone<br/>Scott Leason is an early riser. By 5:30 a.m., he’s checked his email, social media, the news and the weather. He’s reviewed the day’s surf reports via the Surfline app on his new iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">R</span>, prepping for the day’s ride. Before the sun rises on this particular Friday, he’s geared up and ready to go for his session at Mission Bay Aquatic Center in San Diego where he’ll surf Mission Beach.<br/>And he experiences it all without seeing it. Leason is blind.<br/>A veteran of the US Navy, he was one of several visual communications experts — or “signal men” as they were called — stationed on the USS Tripoli amphibious ship, signaling vessel to vessel through flashing lights, Morse code and semaphore. After seven years of service, Leason was blinded when a robber’s bullet cost him both his eyes on July 4th, 1993. In 2009, after learning his new “normal” over several years, Leason received a computer and technology training from the US Department of Veterans Affairs’ Blind Rehabilitation Center that would be pivotal in his journey to living independently. <br/>Accessible mobile computer technology was still nascent, but Apple’s iOS was quickly becoming a user favorite. In 2012, Leason received his first iPhone — the iPhone 5 — and training from Sarah T. Majidzadeh, assistant chief of Blind Rehabilitation at the Tibor Rubin VA Medical Center in Long Beach. “It’s a lot easier to navigate with the phone,” Leason says. “I think a lot of the visually impaired prefer the iPhone because they can do everything on it. And VoiceOver works pretty darn good.” <br/>Leason is just one of many individuals who are blind or low vision who rely on VoiceOver to navigate daily tasks. In fact, more people in the blind community now use VoiceOver than any other mobile screen-reading software combined. Roughly 70 percent of the vets that have come through the VA’s 13 blind rehabilitation centers are provided with iOS devices and accessibility training. “These tools are leveling the playing field,” Majidzadeh says. <br/>But Leason is no tech guru. Yes, he wears an Apple Watch to track his vigorous workouts at home and in the water. But he prefers to keep things simple and have all of his devices streamlined, something iPhone has done for both sighted and blind individuals. “Tomorrow I’ll be able to start my surfing workout,” he says. “It’ll be interesting to see what kind of calories I burn out there.” <br/>He is also a serious athlete with a serious competitive drive. He wants to win, and a few times, he has: Leason was the first blind champion at the USA Adaptive Surfing Championships at Oceanside Harbor North Jetty in June 2016. The same year he won second place in men’s tricks at the USA Water Ski competition in Harmony, North Carolina. This year alone he competed in seven competitions in four different sports.<br/>“When he showed me all the stuff he could do with [his iPhone], it just blew my mind that he had learned how to interact with it to get all of that out of it.”<br/>Though Leason has been working with the Mission Bay Aquatic Center for 10 years, surfing is only a recent endeavor, an attempt to revisit a childhood pastime from growing up in Corona del Mar. Over the years, with support from the Challenged Athletes Foundation’s <a href="https://www.challengedathletes.org/programs/operation-rebound/" target="_blank">Operation Rebound</a> program for vets, Leason and the Center have adapted, learned and grown as he conquers new feats in the water. <br/>Paul Lang, instructional coordinator at the Mission Bay Aquatic Center, remembers some of the stumbling blocks in the early days they’ve since overcome. “When he water skis and wakeboards with us, usually we can communicate to the rider that the boat’s about to turn,” he explains. “Scott doesn’t have any of those cues so we had to come up with systems like, when we’re going to drop him off at the beach, we reach up and shake the line so he feels the line shaking and that’s our cue to him that we’re coming in. Those little things … we run into a roadblock, we figure it out with Scott, and come up with systems that work well so that everybody can do this.” <br/>Lang, who has worked with Leason since before he received his first iPhone, is often blown away by his ability to adapt in and out of the water. <br/>“The first time he got an iPhone and learned how to use VoiceOver, I asked him to show it to me because you just see him tapping the screen and to me it made no sense what he was doing cause it’s just like this flurry of tapping and these words coming out of the phone really really fast,” Lang says. “And when he showed me all the stuff he could do with it, it just blew my mind that he had learned how to interact with it to get all of that out of it. … He’s no different than anybody else. He’s just sitting in the corner over there getting caught up on his phone or listening to music, reading, and sending text messages.” <br/>“It’s amazing how long ago 10 years feels in the world of technology,” says Kevin Waldick, assistant director at the Mission Bay Aquatic Center. “He was not very technologically savvy at all, but when he got his iPhone he was like ‘I can just do it. This is amazing.’ And so Apple does a really amazing job of making that accessible. These sports are accessible just like technology’s accessible. That’s been huge for him.” <br/>As 2018 comes to an end, Leason has one month of wakeboarding and surfing until he and the Center take a break for the holidays. “When I’m at the end of a line behind a boat just like anybody else, I forget I’m blind,” he says. “And then when I come into the beach and there’s people around Snickers and I go yeah that’s my seeing eye dog and I got a board in my hand and they go, ‘you’re blind?’ That’s a cool feeling. <br/>“The water sports are therapeutic but also I think it’s more of my identity and who I am, and who I grew up to be,” he says. <br/>Back on land, Leason enjoys a spicy lunch while reliving the day’s waves. He’s wiped, but he still has a two-hour workout planned for later in the day. And with Snickers by his side, he’ll keep going. He’ll make a fundraising push on his GoFundMe page, he’ll plan out his competitions and activities for 2019. He’ll continue living life on his own terms. “I’m independent,” he says. “That’s the best way to describe the iPhone: independence.” <br/>Press Contacts<br/>Colin Johnson,Apple, [email protected] ,(408) 974-6284<br/>Apple Media Helpline,[email protected],(408) 974-2042<br/>

It also looks really good with Mojave’s new Dark Mode, which uses a dark color scheme instead of the traditional light scheme and reduces glare, eye fatigue, and contrast. The battery life is no joke either — and can support up to 12 hours of continued use.” <br/><a href="https://www.wired.com/review/apple-macbook-air-2018/" target="_blank"><strong>WIRED</strong></a><br /> “Apple has heard the calls for a newer, better MacBook Air, and it has answered.” <br/><a href="https://www.daringfireball.net/2018/11/the_2018_retina_macbook_air" target="_blank"><strong>Daring Fireball</strong></a><br /> “The new Air is exactly that: the MacBook most people should buy, and exactly the MacBook everyone has been asking Apple to make.” <br/><a href="https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/1041513/Apple-MacBook-Air-2018-UK-release-price" target="_blank"><strong>Daily Express</strong></a><strong> (UK)</strong><br /> “This hugely popular Mac has been brought back to life with a stunning new lightweight design, improved Retina screen and added extras such as Touch ID and Apple’s Force Touch trackpad.

It’s designed for all types of users, whether you want to use it as a server in your home, and set up more than one Mini as a set of servers to offload video encoding and code compiling.” <br/><a href="https://www.mobilesyrup.com/2018/11/06/mac-mini-2018-review/" target="_blank"><strong>MobileSyrup</strong></a> <strong>(Canada)</strong><br /> “Any way you look at the new Mac mini and regardless of configuration, the latest version of the tiny desktop computer is significantly more powerful than its predecessor.” <br/>Customers can order MacBook Air and Mac mini on <a href="https://www.apple.com/" target="_blank">apple.com</a> and in the Apple Store app. MacBook Air and Mac mini will be available starting Wednesday, November 7, from <a href="https://www.apple.com/" target="_blank">apple.com</a>, in the Apple Store app and Apple retail stores, and are also available through Apple Authorized Resellers. <br/>Press Contacts<br/>Jennie Orphanopoulos,Apple, [email protected],(408) 221-6621<br/>Bill Evans,Apple,[email protected],(408) 974-0610<br/>Apple Media Helpline,[email protected],(408) 974-2042<br/>

New iPad Pro with all-screen design Is most advanced, powerful iPad ever

Mac OS vom 30.10.2018 um 16:16 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
New iPad Pro with all-screen design is most advanced, powerful iPad ever<br/>11-inch and 12.9-inch Models Feature Liquid Retina Display, Powerful A12X Bionic Chip and Face ID<br/>New York — Apple today introduced the new <a href="https://www.apple.com/ipad-pro/" target="_blank">iPad Pro</a> with all-screen design and next-generation performance, marking the biggest change to iPad ever. The all-new design pushes 11-inch and 12.9-inch Liquid Retina displays to the edges of iPad Pro and integrates Face ID to securely unlock iPad with just a glance.<sup>1</sup> The A12X Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine in iPad Pro outperforms most PC laptops and offers a new USB-C connector, Gigabit-class LTE, and up to 1TB of storage to enable powerful new mobile workflows.<sup>2</sup> With over a million apps designed to take advantage of the large Multi-Touch display, including next-generation apps like <a href="https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2018/10/adobe-previews-photoshop-cc-on-ipad-and-new-apps-for-creative-pros/" target="_blank">Photoshop CC on iPad</a> (coming 2019), the new iPad Pro will push what users can do on a computer further than ever before.&nbsp; <br/>A second-generation Apple Pencil magnetically attaches to iPad Pro and wirelessly charges at the same time. A new touch sensor built onto Apple Pencil detects taps, introducing an entirely new way to interact within apps. The new Smart Keyboard Folio features a streamlined design that’s adjustable for added versatility. The new iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard Folio are available to order starting today and in stores starting Wednesday, November 7. <br/>“The new iPad Pro is a huge step forward for powerful, creative, mobile computing; it has an all-new thinner design, speeds through projects with the super-fast A12X Bionic chip and unlocks with a glance using Face ID in any orientation — while you’re sitting or standing, with iPad Pro on your desk or lap, with the new Smart Keyboard Folio and new Apple Pencil,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “There has never been a mobile device anything like the new iPad Pro; it has a gorgeous edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display that curves into the corners, breakthrough performance that outperforms most laptops, Face ID, support for the new Smart Keyboard Folio and new Apple Pencil, advanced new cameras and sensors for the best AR experiences ever in any device, a high-speed USB-C connector, louder speakers, faster wireless and more, all packed into a thinner device that has all-day battery life and is 25 percent smaller in volume.” <br/>All-New, All-Screen Designs <br/>iPad Pro features the world’s most advanced display — a stunning, edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display with rounded corners that follow the curves of iPad Pro’s unibody enclosure. With precision-milled glass, advanced pixel masking, sub-pixel antialiasing and a new backlight design, the new Liquid Retina display in iPad Pro is Apple’s brightest and most color accurate iPad display, featuring wide color support, True Tone and anti-reflective coating for a natural, accurate viewing experience indoors and out. ProMotion technology automatically adjusts the display refresh rate up to 120Hz for ultra-smooth scrolling and incredible responsiveness on iPad Pro. <br/>The new 11-inch iPad Pro packs a bigger display with more pixels in the same footprint as the 10.5-inch model, yet still weighs just one pound. The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro places the largest display of any iPad into a more portable package — a massive 25 percent reduction in volume.<sup>3</sup> Both models are just 5.9 mm thin — the thinnest iPad design ever — making iPad Pro now even easier to take with you. <br/>A12X Bionic and Next-Generation Neural Engine <br/>Built specifically for iPad Pro, the A12X Bionic is the smartest and most powerful chip in a tablet, making even the most demanding computing tasks like editing photos or creating 3D models faster and more responsive. Built on industry-leading seven-nanometer technology, the powerful eight-core A12X Bionic features four performance cores and four efficiency cores for up to 35 percent faster single-core performance and a new performance controller for simultaneous use of all eight cores for an up to 90 percent boost during multi-threaded tasks.<sup>3</sup> A seven-core, Apple-designed GPU delivers up to twice the graphics performance for incredibly rich and immersive AR experiences and console-quality graphics. On iPad Pro, the breakthrough performance and capability lasts all day thanks to great 10-hour battery life.<sup>4</sup> <br/>Apple’s next-generation Neural Engine is built for advanced machine learning in everything from photography to AR, completing up to 5 trillion operations per second. This enables fast Face ID, faster plane detection for AR apps and other new features that use real-time machine learning. The Neural Engine is designed to deliver improved performance for Core ML tasks, empowering developers to build apps and new iPad workflows that utilize this highly efficient machine learning engine. <br/>Face ID Comes to iPad <br/>Face ID, the most secure facial authentication system in any tablet or computer, comes to iPad for the first time. Designed to work while holding iPad Pro in any position or while seated using the new Smart Keyboard Folio, Face ID takes advantage of the TrueDepth camera system to accurately map and recognize the face to securely unlock iPad Pro, enable Apple Pay in apps and online and allow users to easily gain access to secure apps. The TrueDepth Camera on iPad Pro also enables Animoji and Memoji. <br/>Best Device for AR <br/>Advanced cameras and sensors and improved four-speaker audio combine with the power of A12X Bionic to turn iPad Pro, with its large viewfinder, into the best device ever for AR. With support for the next generation of AR apps, a new world of AR experiences is possible on iPad, such as measuring the reflection on real-world objects, navigating buildings in 3D and exploring entire universes. Adobe’s Project Aero (coming 2019) will enable creators to design experiences that take AR on iPad even further. <br/>New Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard Folio <br/>The new Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard Folio, available for purchase separately, give iPad Pro users new levels of precision and productivity. The second-generation Apple Pencil magnetically attaches to iPad Pro for pairing and wireless charging. It becomes even more powerful and intuitive as users can select just the right tool or brush with a simple double tap on Apple Pencil within apps like Notes. Powerful apps from leading developers like Adobe, Autodesk and Procreate also give users the power to be even more creative than ever before. <br/>The new Smart Keyboard Folio protects both the front and back of iPad Pro in a simple, thin and light design encompassing a full-size keyboard that never needs to be charged or paired. Easily adjustable for lap or desk use, the new Smart Keyboard Folio is perfect for getting thoughts down and multitasking. <br/>New Power and Possibilities with USB-C <br/>A new USB-C connector replaces the Lightning connector in support of the powerful ways iPad Pro is used. Incredibly versatile, USB-C offers power for charging, supports USB 3.1 Gen 2 for high-bandwidth data transfers up to twice the speed to and from cameras and musical instruments, and drives external displays up to 5K. With USB-C, iPad Pro can even be used to charge an iPhone. <br/>iOS 12 on iPad Pro<br/>iOS 12 brings new gestures to iPad that are already familiar to iPhone X and iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span> users including tap to wake and swiping to go home, access Control Center and for multitasking. The new Shortcuts app helps iPad users link together powerful, yet simple automated workflows for photo editing, video editing and file and asset management. Improvements to Photo import and support for native RAW image editing give photographers more efficient ways to work and multitask on iPad Pro.<br/>Group FaceTime now makes it easy to connect with groups of friends or colleagues at the same time. Participants can be added at any time, join later if the conversation is still active and choose to join using video or audio from an iPhone, iPad or Mac. With new Animoji and customizable Memoji, users can take advantage of the large screen on iPad to add more personality to photos and videos in Messages and FaceTime.<br/><strong>Pricing and Availability</strong> <br/><ul> <li>The new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro will be available in silver and space gray finishes in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB configurations as well as a new 1TB option.

The secret world of Mac mini

Mac OS vom 30.10.2018 um 15:32 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
The secret world of Mac mini<br/>Helping to Power Dierks Bentley, Peter Pan and the Apps in Your Pocket<br/>From the moment Dierks Bentley’s voice explodes into the California night air, the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View finds itself on a Mountain High. That’s the name of the 14-time Grammy nominee’s latest tour — and that tour doesn’t go anywhere without Mac mini.  <br/>Introduced as a smaller and more affordable desktop computer by Apple in 2005, Mac mini’s power and versatility have made it a favorite of developers around the world for every stage of the app creation process, from tinkering to testing and simulating at scale. As a result, it’s been instrumental in creating, powering and perfecting some of the world’s most popular apps. <br/>“Candy Crush, Shopify, Day One — so many of your favorite apps and games run on Mac mini. It’s truly the Swiss Army knife of computers,” says Brian Stucki of MacStadium, which manages nearly 8,000 Mac mini systems in co-location data centers for a wide range of developers — from small startups to some of the most valuable companies in the Fortune 500. <br/>But Mac mini’s versatility doesn’t stop there. It’s bringing innovation to retail stores, tools to hospitals and imagination to theme parks. There’s nothing that this “little computer that could” can’t do. <br/>Perhaps surprisingly, that includes powering some of the most extraordinary musical and artistic experiences on the planet. There’s a secret world out there, behind packed concerts and Broadway stages — and if you look close enough, you might just see a Mac mini, working hard to make sure the music, and the magic, are just right. <br/>Back in Mountain View, while the audience sings along with Bentley, guitar tech Carlos Gutierrez is backstage with his hands on one of the band’s 18 guitars and his eyes on a monitor. If there’s any trouble with the wireless receivers connected to each of the guitars, the software will let him know. And that software is powered by Mac mini. <br/>“If Dierks is out in the crowd and this setup alerts me that his guitar’s wireless strength is going down, I can adjust it and avoid an issue,” says Gutierrez. “And I’ve always run this setup on Mac mini — I’ve been using the same Mac mini for five years, and I’ve never had a problem.” <br/>Earlier in the day, long before Bentley played his first chord, audio techs Cody Seaver and Thomas McNabb had worked to hang, or “fly” as it’s called, the tour’s massive wall of 60 speakers from the stage. Once they were in place, it was time to take them for a test drive. <br/>“We’re barely touching what the Mac mini can do on our tour, which says a lot for the Mac mini.” <br/>At the audio booth midway through the Amphitheatre, front of house engineer James “Pugsley” McDermott hits a button and the sound system roars to life. <br/>His eyes are on a software display of the speaker outputs. After the first test, McDermott blasts some of his favorite songs — the same ones he’s been using for most of the 13 years he’s been with Bentley — to tell him if things sound just right. His tools, both the software and the audio output, are powered by Mac mini. <br/>“Mac mini is such an important tool for me that everything pivots from there,” says McDermott. “I use it to generate the same audio file every time, at a high resolution, and it gives me a graphical representation of what’s happening [sound-wise] in the venue, so I can perfectly tune the system for every show.” <br/>At the end of that night’s show, the crew packs up their gear for the next stop on the tour. Overseeing it all is production manager Jay Ballinger, who has been with Bentley for more than a decade, and counts Apple products, and Mac mini specifically, as vital components of the operation. <br/>“We’re barely touching what the Mac mini can do on our tour, which says a lot for the Mac mini,” says Ballinger. “And if you count the programs we use that run on MacBook Pro, I absolutely know that the music business would not survive in today’s world without Apple products — they’re just a game changer.” <br/>It’s hours before the first performance of the touring Broadway production of <em>Finding Neverland</em> in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the orchestra is warming up for sound check. In addition to the half dozen musicians and conductor, there’s someone working with a different kind of instrument: Mac mini. <br/>Enrico de Trizio is part of a new wave of electronic music designers that have changed the way Broadway sounds. He and his colleague Jeff Marder, who have worked on numerous shows together including <em>Finding Neverland</em>, are equal parts conductor, engineer and programmer. They use software powered by Mac mini to stand in for sections of the show that can’t be sung or played live. <br/>“It’s the combination of versatility and power, all at Apple standards.” <br/>De Trizio relies on Mac mini because it’s the only option that ticks off all of his boxes. “They’re small, they’re extremely powerful, connectivity is awesome — we don’t need hubs or adaptors, everything goes straight into it because they have so many different ports,” he says. “It’s the combination of versatility and power, all at Apple standards.” <br/>With the sound check finished and everything running smoothly, de Trizio leaves the orchestra pit. It’s the last time he will touch his equipment until the performance is over. <br/><em>Finding Neverland</em> is the true story of how author J.M. Barrie conceived the fantastic world of <em>Peter Pan</em>. The production takes the audience on a journey that floats between the author’s real life and the make-believe world of his imagination. And bringing that imagination to life requires a lot of sound effects — from ticking clocks and thunder claps, to cannon booms and the sound of Tinkerbell’s…well, Tinkerbelling. All those effects are possible because of Mac mini, triggered throughout the show by the conductor. <br/>Near the end of the performance, Tinkerbell sprinkles her fairy dust and Wendy and Peter join hands on stage and prepare to take flight. In the orchestra pit beneath them, the music builds before falling nearly silent, and then the conductor activates a device on top of his keyboard.  <br/>This time, Mac mini’s task is to stand in for a very special character at a very special moment. “And by closing my eyes, I’ll be finding Neverland,” sings Peter Pan. <br/>And with that, Peter and Wendy float out into the sky. Barrie has found his story, Peter has found his voice and everyone in the theater has found Neverland. <br/>With Apple’s newest release, <a href="https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2018/10/new-mac-mini-packs-huge-punch/" target="_blank">Mac mini</a> gets a supercharged makeover, opening the door for another generation of users to redefine what is possible with this versatile little computer. From the next app you download to the show you see in a few years, Mac mini is helping to power the future of innovation.&nbsp; &nbsp; <br/>Of course, it’s still up to all of you creators, misfits and rebels to bring the magic. <br/>Press Contacts<br/>Jennie Orphanopoulos,Apple, [email protected],(408) 221-6621<br/>Bill Evans,Apple,[email protected],(408) 974-0610<br/>Apple Media Helpline,[email protected],(408) 974-2042<br/>
