Mac users: Are you ready for the super-fast iMac Pro?

If you’re looking for a high-end Mac, you may want to shoot across to Apple.com and tap the Notify Me button to be among the first to learn when the iMac Pro hits the stores — probably in December.

Huge performance gains with iMac Pro

Apple announced the iMac Pro in June. The company called this “the most powerful Mac ever.”

The introduction was seen as a gesture of solidarity with its long-term desktop users who had started migrating to other platforms in response to the glacial pace of desktop Mac upgrades. Apple has also promised a vastly improved Mac Pro machine next year.

Greenpeace gives Apple a B- for its green electronics efforts

Apple is setting a “new bar in terms of corporate responsibility” when it comes to green electronics. Meanwhile, Samsung continues to disappoint with its lack of leadership here, said Gary Cook, senior IT campaigner at Greenpeace USA.

Where Apple leads on the green electronics front

Apple’s commitment to the environment puts the company far ahead of every other firm, bar Truphone, according to the latest Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics.

The annual report assesses firms for the sustainable manufacturing and design of IT products. It rates corporate transparency, commitment, performance and advocacy efforts in three critical areas: reduction of greenhouse gases through renewable energy, use of recycled materials, and elimination of hazardous chemicals.

My first week with iPhone 8 Plus

I’ve been using an iPhone 8 Plus for over a week. It looks like an iPhone, works like an iPhone, and delivers on everything it promises — just like every other iPhone before it since the first one.

Authenticity is boring

I’m going to try to share a few thoughts about the new device, but I’m going to skip the technical details you can read in Apple’s press release.

In the quest for “authenticity,” today’s critics are paid to be harsh, controversial and (all too frequently) incorrect. That’s certainly been the reaction to the all-new iPhone 8/Plus smartphones, and it’s really quite clear many of them are “holding it wrong” — at least in how they see it.

15 fresh insights into how Apple runs its business

Apple’s most senior executives have recently shared a few fresh details about how they run their business, here are just 15 recent observations.

Be intuitive

When Steve Jobs asked Tim Cook to join Apple, the Californian company was on the edge of collapse. Cook weighed up the evidence and it quite clearly told him not to take the job, “but my intuition was saying something different.” Cook followed his hunch. He now leads the most successful tech company in the world.

Ive also agrees in the value of a little faith. For example, when designing iPhone X he recently admitted that for much of the design process the technology to recognize faces didn’t work. “You got to… know [a problem] can be solved…” though much of that resolve could be seen as coming down to “faith”.

This is what Apple’s Tim Cook is saying about AR

From the U.S. to India, the UK and Europe, Apple’s Tim Cook has been touring the planet to share his thoughts around augmented reality and AR Kit. Here are some of his thoughts:

How important is the technology?

“I think AR is big and profound,” Cook said in August. He believes the technology will prove to be as important as the App Store, and will make the smartphone even more essential to people:

“Think back to 2008, when the App Store went live,” he told The Independent. “There was the initial round of apps and people looked at them and said, ‘this is not anything, mobile apps are not going to take off’.” Time moves forward and today we use apps for a multiplicity of purposes. “AR is like that,” Cook said.

Apple, ARKit and the future of TV

Driven in part by Apple’s iPhone-inspired mobile revolution, audiences are changing dramatically, and ads, enterprise and marketing execs must think ahead to where the media puck is flying.

iPhone natives are everywhere

You don’t have to dig too deep to see how traditional media models have changed. Take a subway journey and you’ll be surrounded by people staring at their iPhones.

When we get home, we are already more likely to watch a streaming channel than to endure the pap provided by broadcast TV. At work, we’re as likely to be involved in virtual meetings as we are to be engaged in them face-to-face.

The inference for most is that Apple’s adventures in enterprise technology, augmented reality and television will inevitably align, and both consumers and enterprise pros need to think hard what that future holds.

My first week with Apple Watch Series 3

I’ve been using Apple Watch since the first version shipped.

I’ve grown so accustomed to using one that some of the things you might like about owning one yourself have become so much part of my daily life that I neglect to mention them here.

That’s the thing about Apple Watch — it weaves itself so intimately inside your daily experience that you begin to use it unconsciously. Just like a watch.

I use the device’s health, Activity, heart and fitness tracking features. I use it for Apple Pay, Maps, Siri questions, Messages, and (of course) for checking the time.

When it comes to third-party apps, I find things like local information, foreign translation and travel-related apps the most useful.
