Apple releases 13th annual Supplier Responsibility Progress Report

Mac OS vom 06.03.2019 um 18:02 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
Apple releases 13th annual Supplier Responsibility Progress Report<br/>Milestones Achieved in Environmental Protection, Education Initiatives Expanded<br/>Cupertino, California — Apple today released its 13th annual <a href="https://www.apple.com/supplier-responsibility/" target="_blank">Supplier Responsibility Progress Report</a> detailing how the company is expanding educational opportunities and protecting the planet’s resources. As of 2018, 17.3 million supplier employees have been trained on workplace rights, and 3.6 million have received advanced education and skills training. All final assembly sites for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, AirPods and HomePod are now certified Zero Waste to Landfill, while conserving billions of gallons of water and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. <br/>“In everything we do, people come first,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “We are constantly raising the bar for ourselves and our suppliers because we are committed to the people who make our products possible as well as the planet we all share. This year, we’re proud to give more people an opportunity to advance their education. Working alongside our suppliers, we’re challenging ourselves to find new ways to keep our planet healthy for future generations. Our goal has always been not just to drive progress in our supply chain, but to drive meaningful change across the industry.” <br/>In 2018, Apple built on its existing educational and career-building programs for supplier employees by adding courses that include App Development with Swift. The program’s first participants created more than 40 apps, ranging from workplace tools to games. Last year, more than 1,500 employees at Apple suppliers earned a college degree, adding to the thousands who have taken advantage of education programming, which expands every year. Additionally, Apple has worked with its suppliers to create health training programs that have reached more than 250,000 people globally, and include courses on nutrition and maternal health. <br/>Apple has also strengthened its efforts to help its supply chain conserve resources, expand the adoption of safer chemicals and reduce pollution. In prioritizing Zero Waste to Landfill, Apple suppliers have diverted 1 million tons of garbage in three years. Apple’s clean water program expanded to 116 suppliers, resulting in 7.6 billion gallons of water saved in 2018 — one gallon for every person on the planet. The company also worked with suppliers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 466,000 annualized metric tons, which is equivalent to taking 100,000 cars off the road for one year. <br/>Every year, Apple demands its suppliers meet higher standards for safe and respectful workplaces. Companies are assessed according to Apple’s Supplier Code of Conduct, which includes more than 500 criteria, and Apple works with suppliers on the ground to achieve improvements where needed. In 2018, the company increased support for new mothers — leading the industry in requiring suppliers to provide nursing rooms on site. To make sure suppliers were meeting this and other standards, Apple conducted 770 assessments of facilities in more than 30 countries in 2018, covering 93 percent of the company’s supplier spend. <br/>Learn more about Apple’s progress in the new <a href="https://www.apple.com/supplier-responsibility/" target="_blank">Supplier Responsibility Progress Report</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/>Lori Lodes,Apple,[email protected],(202) 368-6584<br/>Keri Fulton,Apple,[email protected],(240) 595-2691<br/>Apple Media Helpline,[email protected],(408) 974-2042<br/>

Siri Shortcuts boost health and fitness routines

Mac OS vom 01.03.2019 um 16:56 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
Siri Shortcuts boost health and fitness routines<br/>Snoww, Qardio, HomeCourt and Dexcom Now Feature Siri Shortcuts<br/>Starting and maintaining health and fitness routines gets even easier as more apps offer Siri Shortcuts, joining the thousands that have integrated shortcuts since their introduction with iOS 12. <br/>Using powerful on-device intelligence, Siri Shortcuts help people get things done faster across iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, HomePod, AirPods and CarPlay, allowing them to easily access and use their favorite apps with just a tap or by asking Siri. <br/>Track Performance and Enhance Training <br/>New Siri Shortcuts provide performance stats in real time and help make training easier. Skiers hitting the slopes this season can use Siri Shortcuts on the Snoww app to start a run (just say, “Hey Siri, let’s ski!”) and get information about the speed, elevation drops and distance traveled by simply raising their wrist to trigger Siri on Apple Watch (“Hey Siri, how was my run?”). <br/>In HomeCourt’s latest update, users can ask Siri to start a dribble workout on iPad or iPhone. And with the Nike Run Club app, runners can use Siri to start a run and get proactive suggestions based on running habits. <br/>Monitor Vitals <br/>Third-party health devices are integrating Siri Shortcuts into their apps for easier data retrieval and control, whether at home or on the go. <br/>The QardioArm smart blood pressure monitor now lets users ask Siri to remotely check in on family members. For example, people who care for an aging parent can ask, “Hey Siri, what’s mom’s blood pressure?” and get that information wherever they are, right on their iPhone or Apple Watch. <br/>With the Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring System, people with diabetes can better track and manage blood glucose levels by simply asking Siri, “What’s my glucose level?” <br/>Build Healthy Habits <br/>Whether watching your diet, getting enough sleep, breaking a bad habit or remembering to take medications and vitamins, Siri Shortcuts help keep track while on the go with any Apple device. With apps like Streaks, WaterMinder and Yazio, users can track daily habits and see how long they can keep them going by asking Siri to log almost any type of activity, such as hydration, exercise, flossing, sugar and caffeine intake, even walking the dog. <br/>With AutoSleep, Siri Shortcuts track sleep quality with Apple Watch or iPhone, providing information when asked about hours slept, quality of sleep, deep sleep, updates on reaching a sleep goal, latest bedtime and more. <br/>Personalize Routines With the Shortcuts App <br/>For those who want to go further in customizing a full fitness routine using Siri, the Shortcuts app allows users to build their own multi-step shortcuts that include actions from multiple apps to create powerful automations. For example, users can create a shortcut telling Siri, “Heading to the gym.” Upon arrival, start the workout with an app like Nike Run Club, cue a workout playlist and enable Do Not Disturb until leaving the gym. A how-to for using the Shortcuts app can be found at <a href="https://support.apple.com/guide/shortcuts/shortcuts-at-a-glance-apdf22b0444c/2.1/ios/12.0/" target="_blank">support.apple.com/guide/shortcuts</a>. <br/>Based on how customers use their devices, Siri will suggest simple, useful shortcuts right when needed on the Lock screen or in Search. Additionally, users can look for the “Add to Siri” button in the apps they use, or go to Settings &gt; Siri &amp; Search &gt; All Shortcuts to see which apps offer shortcuts and to set a personal phrase to run them with. <br/>Press Contacts<br/>Cat Franklin,Apple,[email protected],(669) 276-1209<br/>Apple Media Helpline,[email protected],(408) 974-2042<br/>

Huntington Beach educators mold musicians of tomorrow

Mac OS vom 27.02.2019 um 17:56 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
Huntington Beach educators mold musicians of tomorrow<br/><em>This feature is the first in a series spotlighting teachers and students using innovative technology in the classroom.</em> <br/>The auditorium is buzzing with the sound of eager teenagers. At the Huntington Beach Academy for the Performing Arts (APA), production is in full swing on the school’s annual student-curated show: “Playlist.” <br/>This year, 13 vocal students have prepared their own original songs, alongside 24 covers of some of today’s pop music hits. <br/>Cailey Collado, a senior in the Music, Media and Entertainment Technology (MMET) program, takes the stage to run through her original song: “Bleed Red.” As her voice booms over the mic, three stage screens weave a live feed of Collado’s performance and a student-produced music video. <br/>“Love’s not dead. Get it through your head, get it through your head, that we all bleed red,” she sings. <br/>It’s clear these are not just students; they are true musicians. <br/>MMET is the brainchild of Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE) alum Jamie Knight (MMET’s first director) and ADE Michael Simmons, along with Huntington Beach APA. The program is incorporated into nine of APA’s available theater and music majors, giving students hands-on training in fields including theater tech, audio recording and video production (using Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X, respectively). <br/>In the school’s auditorium, students use a Yamaha CL5 digital mixer, and have even rigged it to be portable, monitoring and controlling sound levels around the theater on an iPad Pro. The school also houses a recording studio with a guitar room across the hall, and several other collaborative music creation spaces the students are encouraged to use whenever they feel inspired. <br/>Back in 2004, Knight started teaching a class on music technology and recording at APA, but there was no technology. His small class of 25 students was performing Cheap Trick and other rock ’n’ roll songs at a few restaurants, and even the Apple Store at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. Fifteen years later, the program has grown to include 152 students majoring in MMET Popular Music and MMET Media, who are writing their own music, arranging songs with Simmons and performing live in three major shows a year: a Beatles show, “Playlist” and “Retrofest.” “Playlist” is now in its seventh year. <br/>“It was imperative to let the students create a show that they wanted,” says Knight. “We have all the student leaders break the kids into groups of like five or six kids and the simple instruction is pick 10 songs that you would die to perform live, that are new. Then the student producers narrow those songs down, and the kids that like to write songs audition for the staff.” <br/>What began as a music club singing rock covers is now a hands-on music education curriculum designed to teach students visual and performing arts, as well as the technical skills needed to succeed in the music industry. <br/>“I would record all the parts on my iMac, in Logic&nbsp;Pro&nbsp;X and GarageBand, and I’d record them all, isolate them and I would teach it to my peers.” <br/>“We don’t just focus on the technology,” Knight says. “It’s that performing arts experience that gives them leadership skills, confidence, team work, all of those soft skills that businesses want. You have to perform to get that, and then when you marry that with the technology and you give the kids the ability to have a real recording studio to work with, they’re going to be the next Steven Spielberg, or the next Paul McCartney.” <br/>Knight and Nicole Kubis, MMET’s vocal director and a 2009 graduate from the program, have met with other educators to make the case for learning both the arts and the science in music education. “Apple products are equipped with the tools to [teach] that,” Kubis says. “They come with GarageBand, they come with iMovie … Now more than ever, kids are diving into that, which is great. You can’t be a one-trick pony in this world anymore.” <br/>Kubis recalls her junior year at APA, when Knight asked her to dissect all the vocals on “Pet Sounds,” the complex Beach Boys album, and teach it to her peers. <br/>“I had 13 juniors and seniors, myself included, and we sat in a portable four hours a day and just woodshedded these vocals,” Kubis says. “I would record all the parts on my iMac, in Logic Pro X and GarageBand, and I’d record them all, isolate them and I would teach it to my peers.” <br/>Knight credits Kubis with pioneering this learning format, sharing audio files with students so they could — literally — walk around campus with their phones held to their ear to learn their parts. No sheet music, just iPhone. “It’s my life. Everything I do is on this phone,” Kubis says. <br/>Today Kubis’s students are owning the stage like seasoned performers. Cailey Collado is grateful for the confidence Kubis taught her. Collado and seven other students organized an a cappella to open the show, an accomplishment she is sure wouldn’t have been possible four years ago. “Nicole’s got me so comfortable with harmonies now that I can write them on my own,” she says. <br/>Olivia Ooms, a junior at APA majoring in MMET Popular Music, came in as a vocalist and guitarist and is now traveling back and forth to Nashville recording her own songs as a country music artist. (She’s even opened for Lady Antebellum with her band, Olivia Ooms and The Resistors.) <br/>Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. at the Huntington Beach Union High School District Auditorium and Bell Tower. <br/>The show goes off (almost) without a hitch, but the students power through their songs much like any pro. Drums, horns and backup singers line the stage while vocal majors (who all have a lead) move the crowd with their own songs and contemporary favorites by the likes of Jorja Smith and Leon Bridges. Backstage, a student crew queues up each performance with live and pre-recorded video, powered through one iMac. <br/>Fearless — that’s one way to describe the students, who are now prepared for life after high school. <br/>“I don’t know if it’s so much that the kids need to prepare for anything,” says Addison Love, MMET’s instrumental director and a 2014 grad. “The world needs to prepare for these kids.” <br/>Press Contacts<br/>Andy Bowman,Apple,[email protected] ,(408) 783-0619<br/>Apple Media Helpline,[email protected],(408) 974-2042<br/>

Huntington Beach educators mold musicians of tomorrow

Huntington Beach educators mold musicians of tomorrow<br/><em>This feature is the first in a series spotlighting teachers and students using innovative technology in the classroom.</em> <br/>The auditorium is buzzing with the sound of eager teenagers. At the Huntington Beach Academy for the Performing Arts (APA), production is in full swing on the school’s annual student-curated show: “Playlist.” <br/>This year, 13 vocal students have prepared their own original songs, alongside 24 covers of some of today’s pop music hits. <br/>Cailey Collado, a senior in the Music, Media and Entertainment Technology (MMET) program, takes the stage to run through her original song: “Bleed Red.” As her voice booms over the mic, three stage screens weave a live feed of Collado’s performance and a student-produced music video. <br/>“Love’s not dead. Get it through your head, get it through your head, that we all bleed red,” she sings. <br/>It’s clear these are not just students; they are true musicians. <br/>MMET is the brainchild of Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE) alum Jamie Knight (MMET’s first director) and ADE Michael Simmons, along with Huntington Beach APA. The program is incorporated into nine of APA’s available theater and music majors, giving students hands-on training in fields including theater tech, audio recording and video production (using Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X, respectively). <br/>In the school’s auditorium, students use a Yamaha CL5 digital mixer, and have even rigged it to be portable, monitoring and controlling sound levels around the theater on an iPad Pro. The school also houses a recording studio with a guitar room across the hall, and several other collaborative music creation spaces the students are encouraged to use whenever they feel inspired. <br/>Back in 2004, Knight started teaching a class on music technology and recording at APA, but there was no technology. His small class of 25 students was performing Cheap Trick and other rock ’n’ roll songs at a few restaurants, and even the Apple Store at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. Fifteen years later, the program has grown to include 152 students majoring in MMET Popular Music and MMET Media, who are writing their own music, arranging songs with Simmons and performing live in three major shows a year: a Beatles show, “Playlist” and “Retrofest.” “Playlist” is now in its seventh year. <br/>“It was imperative to let the students create a show that they wanted,” says Knight. “We have all the student leaders break the kids into groups of like five or six kids and the simple instruction is pick 10 songs that you would die to perform live, that are new. Then the student producers narrow those songs down, and the kids that like to write songs audition for the staff.” <br/>What began as a music club singing rock covers is now a hands-on music education curriculum designed to teach students visual and performing arts, as well as the technical skills needed to succeed in the music industry. <br/>“I would record all the parts on my iMac, in Logic&nbsp;Pro&nbsp;X and GarageBand, and I’d record them all, isolate them and I would teach it to my peers.” <br/>“We don’t just focus on the technology,” Knight says. “It’s that performing arts experience that gives them leadership skills, confidence, team work, all of those soft skills that businesses want. You have to perform to get that, and then when you marry that with the technology and you give the kids the ability to have a real recording studio to work with, they’re going to be the next Steven Spielberg, or the next Paul McCartney.” <br/>Knight and Nicole Kubis, MMET’s vocal director and a 2009 graduate from the program, have met with other educators to make the case for learning both the arts and the science in music education. “Apple products are equipped with the tools to [teach] that,” Kubis says. “They come with GarageBand, they come with iMovie … Now more than ever, kids are diving into that, which is great. You can’t be a one-trick pony in this world anymore.” <br/>Kubis recalls her junior year at APA, when Knight asked her to dissect all the vocals on “Pet Sounds,” the complex Beach Boys album, and teach it to her peers. <br/>“I had 13 juniors and seniors, myself included, and we sat in a portable four hours a day and just woodshedded these vocals,” Kubis says. “I would record all the parts on my iMac, in Logic Pro X and GarageBand, and I’d record them all, isolate them and I would teach it to my peers.” <br/>Knight credits Kubis with pioneering this learning format, sharing audio files with students so they could — literally — walk around campus with their phones held to their ear to learn their parts. No sheet music, just iPhone. “It’s my life. Everything I do is on this phone,” Kubis says. <br/>Today Kubis’s students are owning the stage like seasoned performers. Cailey Collado is grateful for the confidence Kubis taught her. Collado and seven other students organized an a cappella to open the show, an accomplishment she is sure wouldn’t have been possible four years ago. “Nicole’s got me so comfortable with harmonies now that I can write them on my own,” she says. <br/>Olivia Ooms, a junior at APA majoring in MMET Popular Music, came in as a vocalist and guitarist and is now traveling back and forth to Nashville recording her own songs as a country music artist.

Apple highlights best photos shot on iPhone around the world

Mac OS vom 26.02.2019 um 14:55 Uhr | Quelle apple.com
Apple highlights best photos shot on iPhone around the world<br/>iPhone photographers around the world shared their best photos for the <a href="https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2019/01/share-your-best-photos-shot-on-iphone/">Shot on iPhone Challenge</a>, capturing remarkable moments with the world’s most popular camera. The 10 selected winners will be featured on billboards in select cities, in Apple retail stores and online. The winning shots came from a range of models, from iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span> Max to iPhone 7, showcasing the quality of cameras across the line.<br/>The top 10 winners came from countries including Singapore, Germany, Belarus, Israel and the US, highlighting the global community of iPhone photographers that participated. These photos capture colorful city scenery, curious animals, creative reflections, the beauty of the ordinary and more. <br/>Our international panel of judges — Pete Souza, Austin Mann, Annet de Graaf, Luísa Dörr, Chen Man, Phil Schiller, Kaiann Drance, Brooks Kraft, Sebastien Marineau-Mes, Jon McCormack and Arem Duplessis — gave some insight on why they loved these shots. <br/>Shot on iPhone Challenge - The Winners <br/><strong>Alex Jiang (US), iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span> Max</strong><br><br> <em>Chen Man says:</em> “This is a photo filled with lovely color and sense of story in the composition. Zooming in, you can see details of each family and their unique touch. The basketball hoop is placed right in the middle of the photo, adding more stories behind the image.” <br><br> <em>Annet de Graaf says:</em> “The narrative in architecture. There is actually life behind the surface of an average apartment building in an unknown city. Vivid colors and a perfect composition with the basketball board right in the middle! Great eye.”<br/><strong>Blake Marvin (US), iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span> Max</strong><br><br> <em>Austin Mann says:</em> “This image took a lot of patience and great timing … with the iPhone’s zero shutter lag and Smart HDR, we’re able to see both the raccoon’s eyes and the deep shadows inside the log … something that would have previously been nearly impossible with natural light.”<br><br> <em>Phil Schiller says:</em> “The stolen glance between this raccoon/thief and photographer is priceless, we can imagine that it is saying ‘if you back away slowly no one has to get hurt.’ A nice use of black and white, the focus on the raccoon and the inside of the hollow log provides an organic movement frozen in time.”<br/><strong>Darren Soh (Singapore), iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span> Max</strong><br><br> <em>Phil Schiller says:</em> “A reflection that looks like a painting, two worlds have collided. You are compelled to think about where and how this photo was taken, the bird flying in the corner provides the single sign of life in an otherwise surreal composition.” <br><br> <em>Chen Man says:</em> “Distortion and reflection at a strange angle — this photo creates a fantastic feeling.” <br/><strong>Nikita Yarosh (Belarus), iPhone 7</strong><br><br> <em>Austin Mann says:</em> “I love how accessible this image is: You don’t have to travel to Iceland to capture something beautiful, it’s right under your nose. The way the lines intersect, the vibrant color, the sense of old and new … this is just a great image.”<br><br> <em>Luísa Dörr says:</em> “I like the simplicity of this image, the composition, light, details, everything looks good. Then you see one small line that looks wrong and makes me think what happened, where is this place, who was there. For me a good image is not only one that is strong or beautiful, but makes you think about it — and keep thinking.”<br/><strong>Dina Alfasi (Israel), iPhone X</strong><br><br> <em>Sebastien Marineau-Mes says:</em> “Love how the heart shaped water puddle frames the subject, capturing a glimpse of the world as the subject hurriedly walks past.” <br><br> <em>Brooks Kraft says:</em> “A unique perspective and a new take on the popular subject of shooting reflections. I like that the subject is evident, but you are not really sure how the photo was taken. The puddle is the shape of a heart, with nice symmetry of the subject. The depth of field that iPhone has in regular mode made this image possible, a DSLR would have had a difficult time keeping everything in focus.”<br/><strong>Elizabeth Scarrott (US), iPhone 8 Plus</strong><br><br> <em>Brooks Kraft says:</em> “A portrait that captures the wonderment of childhood in a beautiful setting. Great composition that shows both the personality of the child and the experience in the surroundings.” <br><br> <em>Pete Souza says:</em> “Nice portrait and use of background to provide context. The placement of the child’s face is in an optimal place — lining her up so the background directly behind her is clean and not distracting. The setting is a familiar — I’ve probably stood in this exact spot. But the picture is not like any I’ve seen from this location.”<br/><strong>Andrew Griswold (US), iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span></strong><br><br> <em>Jon McCormack says:</em> “This image is very well thought through and executed. The background pattern holds the image together and the repeated smaller versions of that pattern in the water droplets create a lot of visual interest. The creative use of depth of field here is excellent.”  <br><br> <em>Sebastien Marineau-Mes says:</em> “Very unique composition and color palette, playing to the strengths of iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span>. What I find most interesting is the background pattern, uniquely magnified and distorted in every one of the water droplets. I’m drawn to studying and trying to elucidate what that pattern is.”<br/><strong>Bernard Antolin (US), iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span> Max</strong><br><br> <em>Kaiann Drance says:</em> “Looks like a simple scene but a good choice of using black and white to elevate it with a different mood. Helps to bring out the dramatic contrast in the clouds and the surrounding landscape.” <br/><strong>LieAdi Darmawan (US), iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span></strong><br><br> <em>Luísa Dörr says:</em> “I feel like this landscape was treated like an old portrait. The texture of the mountains evokes an old wrinkled face. Portraits and landscapes are the oldest way of creative representation by humans. There’s something about it that belongs to the realms of the subconscious mind, and this is mainly what appeals me of this picture; the part that I’m not able to explain.”<br/><strong>Robert Glaser (Germany), iPhone 7</strong><br><br> <em>Kaiann Drance says:</em> “Gorgeous dynamic range. There’s detail throughout the photo in the meadow, trees, and clouds. Beautiful deep sky and pleasing color overall.”<br/>iPhone offers tools to help anyone take great photos with state-of-the-art cameras that offer advanced photography techniques. Innovations like Smart HDR create photos with more highlights and shadow detail, Depth Control allows users to adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture,<sup>1</sup> and advanced depth segmentation in Portrait mode enables more sophisticated portraits with professional-level bokeh using the A12 Bionic chip and its next-generation Neural Engine.<br/><sup>1</sup> Smart HDR and Depth Control are available on iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span>, iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span> Max, and iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">R</span>. <br/>Press Contacts<br/>Andrew Kelly,Apple,[email protected],(669) 283-1423<br/>Apple Media Helpline,[email protected],(408) 974-2042<br/>
