Alongside a new Intelligent Tracking Prevention feature designed to protect user privacy, Apple's latest Safari web browser incorporates differential privacy technology to collect user data in a bid to identify troublesome websites.
Following the release of maOS 10.13 High Sierra on Monday, Apple has updated its consumer level video editing tool, iMovie, with support for High Efficiency Video Encoding, a tentpole video feature introduced alongside the company's latest hardware and software releases.
High Sierra has arrived for all users, and brings the Apple File System to the Mac for the first time, while introducing support for a variety of other standards such as HEVC video, HEIF image encoding, and Apple's Metal 2 graphics platform supporting technology like external GPUs.
Just a few weeks before macOS High Sierra officially launches, Apple has issued a golden master candidate build to developers and public beta testers, signifying that the anticipated Mac update is almost ready for the masses.
This Tuesday, the first-ever event at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Apple's iconic iPhone. It's expected to be headlined by a new OLED model known as the iPhone X, but that's not all the company has in store. AppleInsider gives you a complete rundown of what to expect.
Looking at late betas of Apple's eGPU support in High Sierra, Apple has come a long way, and has made some of the technology changes and fixes that it needs for widest possible adoption — but it's not quite there yet for the entirety of the Mac user base.
A few of the external GPU solutions are aimed at the gamer crowd — and look like it too. The Mantiz MZ-02 is one of a new generation of enclosures, aimed at boosting graphics performance with the addition of a PCI-E GPU to a Thunderbolt 3-equipped machine and eschewing any stereotypical gamer branding.
Registered members of Apple's public beta testing program now have a third pre-release build of iOS 11 and macOS 10.13 High Sierra available to download, arriving just a day after the fourth developer beta.
In yet another likely reason that external graphics card support for Mac will not exit beta until 2018, there are not any external monitors currently on the market, compatible with macOS High Sierra's eGPU feature, that match the pixel density of Apple's own Retina displays.
Sixteen days after making the first releases available, Apple on Wednesday released second versions of its upcoming operating system refresh set to arrive this fall, with developers now able to access iOS 11, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, watchOS 4, tvOS 11 and and Xcode 9.
After hammering on Apple's external GPU developer's kit for a week, AppleInsider discusses the hardware, the technology, and what needs to happen in the future for adoption of the concept by Mac users.
