As we head into June, deals aren't as good as they've been in past weeks, but there are still some decent discounts to be had. Best Buy is selling several of its iPad mini 3 models at a discount of $100 this week, and it's also offering $100 off the 2015 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro with 8GB RAM and 512GB storage. <br/> <br/> The 2014 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro is being sold at low prices <a href="http://www.macrumors...pro/">followinglast week's refresh</a>, and older MacBook Air models are priced to sell. As always, we've also got some solid deals on Apple accessories and we've rounded up a list of apps you can get on the cheap. <br/> <br/> <h2>iPad Air 2</h2> <br/> Deals on the iPad Air 2 aren't as good as they have been in past weeks, but Apple <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/05/19/refurbished-ipad-air-2-now-available/">started offering refurbished iPad Air 2 models</a> last week, so the company's refurbished store is worth checking out if you're looking to get a discount on a tablet. <br/> <br/> B&H Photo is offering a small discount on <a href="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=ipad+air+2&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search=kw/APIPA2A16G/BI/2696/KBID/3612">most of its iPad Air 2 models</a>, dropping prices by $30 to $50.

Apple’s HomeKit platform will see first accessories launc...

Yesterday, 08:43 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<p class="p1"><a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...urers/homekit/"rel="attachment wp-att-350632"><img title="Apple’s HomeKit platform will see first accessories launch next week" class="aligncenter wp-image-350632" src="https://9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2014/11/homekit.png?w=704&h=363" alt="homekit" width="704" height="363" /></a></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">The first home automation products using Apple’s new Siri-controlled HomeKit platform will arrive next week, according to sources briefed on Apple’s plans. </span><span id="more-382199"></span><div class="inlinead"><a href="http://rss.buysellad...0&c=1188987172"target="_blank"><img src="http://rss.buysellads.com/img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a715efcc79f88&a=1432934220&c=1188987172" border="0" alt="" /></a></div></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">The company first introduced HomeKit <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...omation/"><spanclass="s2">last year alongside iOS 8</span></a>, introducing a framework for developers to build home automation accessories that could integrate with one another and be controlled using Siri. After Apple officially <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2014/11/17/mfi-summit-shenzhen-apple-begins-accepting-product-plans-for-homekit-accessories/"><span class="s2">began to accept HomeKit product plans</span></a> last November, a number of companies began <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/01/07/homekit-running-list/"><span class="s2">showing off HomeKit products at CES 2015 in January.</span></a> </span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Many of the companies previewing HomeKit products in recent months are likely to be among the roughly five companies sources say will make announcements early next week. </span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">We’ll also see more of what’s in store for HomeKit at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference, which starts only days after the announcements on June 8. The timing of HomeKit announcements so close to WWDC suggests that Apple did not have adequate keynote time to accommodate third-party demos of the accessories, but wanted to let them receive attention anyway.

Opinion: Google’s new Photos may just have won my library...

Yesterday, 08:14 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<div id="attachment_382170" style="width: 665px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img title="Opinion: Google's new Photos may just have won my library away from Apple" class="wp-image-382170 size-medium" src="https://9to5mac.file...pg?w=655&h=368"alt="IMG_4817" width="655" height="368" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Google Photos</p></div>
<p>My relationship with Apple’s hardware is simple: I’m happily locked in, and not changing platforms any time soon. But my relationship with Apple’s software is complex: I want to love it, but every time Apple decides to “throw everything away” and “start over” with an app, it’s disruptive — and for many users, unnecessary. From my perspective, users weren’t complaining that Apple’s popular photo apps iPhoto or Aperture were hopelessly broken or even deficient in major ways, yet Apple discontinued both of them last month to release Photos, a bare-bones alternative no one seems to love. On the relationship scale, I didn’t abandon Aperture; Aperture abandoned me (and a lot of other people).</p>
<p>So <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...s/">yesterday’sannouncement of the free cross-platform photo and video storage app <strong>Google Photos</strong></a> couldn’t have come at a better time. Apple has <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/02/06/apple-photos-strategy/">struggled to explain</a> why it now offers two separate photo syncing services, neither with the virtually unlimited photo and video storage Google is now giving users — notably all users, including Mac and iOS users. Moreover, Apple has offered no sign that it’s going to drop the steep fees it’s charging for iCloud photo storage. With WWDC just around the corner, Apple has a big opportunity to match Google’s photo and video initiative, thrilling its customers in the process. If that doesn’t happen, I’m moving my collection into Google Photos, and not looking back…</p>

<p>Google Photos is pitched with Apple-like simplicity and power. You get unlimited free storage in what Google calls “high quality” resolution — 16 Megapixels for photos, 1080p for videos — or take 15GB of space for unlimited-resolution photos and videos. As of today, it’s fair to say that 16MP/1080p is enough resolution for most people; Google picked great numbers. To put the limits in perspective, Apple hasn’t yet released an iPhone or iPad with higher than 8MP resolution for stills or 1080p for videos, which means that anything you snap with iOS devices should look great on Google Photos. Most standalone cameras out there have higher than 16MP resolution at this point, and some cameras are moving into 4K (2160p) video resolution, but the numbers Google picked will let typical users get full enjoyment out of every photo or video they’ve ever created.</p>

<p>Yahoo’s Flickr service took a different direction two years ago, offering a then- (and still sorta) incredible 1TB of free photo storage. The hitches: Flickr’s free storage is ad-supported, with a $50 annual fee to eliminate ads, and video storage isn’t included. There’s also a theoretical cap, although 1TB is a lot of space for even large photos — that’s enough for more than a decade of images, perhaps two, unless you’re shooting giant-sized RAW images rather than standard JPEGs. Still, Google doesn’t cap your storage, prevent you from uploading videos, or run ads alongside your images. Those differences make Google Photos a better deal.</p>
<div id="attachment_382186" style="width: 665px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img title="Opinion: Google's new Photos may just have won my library away from Apple" class="size-medium wp-image-382186" src="https://9to5mac.file...pg?w=655&h=368"alt="Apple Photos" width="655" height="368" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Apple Photos</p></div>
<p>Apple’s release of Photos hasn’t gone especially well. After abruptly announcing the discontinuation of iPhoto and Aperture, Apple effectively told professionals to switch to Adobe’s Lightroom (see our <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...om-cc-6/">AdobeLightroom CC/6 review here</a>), and tried to convince everyone else to use the hugely stripped-down Photos. The major benefit of Photos is supposed to be a universal photo library that’s automatically synchronized across all of your devices. But you have to pay for it.</p>
<p>Photos pushes you to sign up for additional iCloud storage, which starts at a miserly 20GB for $12 per year ($1 per month) and grows to $240 per year for 1TB of photos and videos — prices that sounded crazy even before Yahoo and Google offered free alternatives. (Flickr previously offered unlimited, ad-free photo storage for $25 a year.) My own photo library is too large to store using iCloud, as it’s currently over 1.2TB without including home video files. But it would work just fine with Google Photos. For free.</p>

<p>From my perspective, giving users unlimited photo and video storage is unquestionably the right next move for Apple. Photos and home videos are some of the most important files people have; they’re some of the best records of your life (remember <a href="http://www.amazon.co...e+runner">BladeRunner</a>, anyone?), yet storing them, backing them up, and transferring them between devices is one of the biggest remaining hassles for Apple’s users. This is a rare situation where throwing money (specifically, additional servers) at a problem would actually make a positive difference for Apple’s customers. Many people have asked for more free iCloud space for device backups, which would be great, but I think a much larger percentage of Apple’s userbase would be thrilled to have Google-like photo and video storage.</p>
<p>Billionaires such as Carl Icahn can keep pushing to turn Apple’s gigantic bank account into a cash dispenser for shareholders, but I’d argue that it’s the right time for Apple to fund “free” photo and video storage as a major investment in long-term customer satisfaction and retention. Some of Apple’s “excess” profits could easily go towards what Google’s building: a giant virtual bank worth of safety deposit boxes, where customers are now storing their most precious possessions for as-needed access, anywhere. Once you upload a giant library to Google, what’s the chance you’ll download everything and do it again for another competitor?</p>
<p>If Apple’s going to match Google on the photo and video storage front, WWDC is the right time to make that announcement. I’m waiting until then to make my decision. Otherwise, I’m planning to move my photo library over to Google Photos, as there’s nothing on the horizon that will make Apple’s photo software or cloud services more compelling.</p><br />Filed under: <a href='http://9to5mac.com/c...-company/'>AAPLCompany</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/category/general/'>General</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/category/ios-devices/'>iOS Devices</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/category/mac/'>Mac</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/category/opinion/'>Opinion</a> Tagged: <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/apple/'>Apple</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/apple-photos/'>Apple Photos</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/cloud/'>cloud</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/google-photos/'>google+ photos</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/icloud/'>icloud</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/photos/'>photos</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/storage/'>Storage</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/synchronization/'>synchronization</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/videos/'>videos</a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gocomments/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/comments/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godelicious/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/delicious/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gofacebook/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/facebook/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gotwitter/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/twitter/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gostumble/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/stumble/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godigg/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/digg/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/goreddit/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/reddit/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382144/" /></a> <img alt="" border="0" src="http://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=9to5mac.com&blog=22754319&post=382144&subd=9to5mac&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1" /><p>Continue reading more about <a href="http://9to5mac.com/category/aapl-company/">AAPL Company</a>, <a href="http://9to5mac.com/category/ios-devices/">iOS Devices</a>, and <a href="http://9to5mac.com/tag/apple/">Apple</a> at <a href="http://9to5mac.com">9to5Mac</a>.</p><p>What do you think? <strong><a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/05/29/opinion-googles-new-photos-may-just-have-won-my-library-away-from-apple/#comments">Discuss "Opinion: Google’s new Photos may just have won my library away from&nbsp;Apple" with our community.</a></strong></p>

Popular Calendar App 'Fantastical 2' Coming Soon...

Yesterday, 07:41 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Flexibits, the developers behind the popular <em>Fantastical 2</em> calendar app for iOS and Mac, today released a teaser suggesting the app will be expanding to the Apple Watch in the near future. A <a href="http://flexibits.com...ical-watch">newpage on the Flexibits website</a> reads "It's almost time" before transitioning over to the Apple Watch depicting a screenshot from the new app. <br/> <br/> Little can be determined about the upcoming Apple Watch app from the screenshot, but it appears to have a clean design with a useful timeline-based calendar for tracking daily appointments and events. A <em>Fantastical</em> app for the Apple Watch will be a welcome addition, as Apple's own Calendar app is limited in functionality. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/05/fantasticalapplewatch.jpg" alt="fantasticalapplewatch" width="800" height="480" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-452396" /> <br/> <em>Fantastical 2</em> is one of the premiere Calendar replacements available on Mac and iOS, popular for its simple interface, Reminders integration, and its ability to parse event entries based on natural language input. <br/> <br/> Flexibits has not given information on a specific date, but <a href="https://twitter.com/flexibits/status/604349783256367105">in a tweet</a>, the company says the app is "almost here." As with all Apple Watch apps, the <em>Fantastical</em> app will be introduced through an update to the existing iPhone app. <br/> <br/> <em><a href="http://appshopper.com/productivity/fantastical-2">Fantastical 2</a></em> for iPhone can be downloaded from the App Store for $4.99.

Apple refreshes iTunes receipts with a new design, ‘purch...

Yesterday, 07:29 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<p><img title="Apple refreshes iTunes receipts with a new design, 'purchased from' field" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-382169" src="https://9to5mac.file...pg?w=704&h=345"alt="applereceipt head" width="704" height="345" /></p>
<p>You may notice a new look on those digital receipts you get in your email inbox after you buy something from iTunes, iBooks, or the App Store. Apple has refreshed its invoices with a new design, friendlier subject line, and cover art images that are clearer on Retina displays. You can see the old and new designs below:<span id="more-382166"></span><div class="inlinead"><a href="http://rss.buysellad...20&c=609532558"target="_blank"><img src="http://rss.buysellads.com/img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a715efcc79f88&a=1432934220&c=609532558" border="0" alt="" /></a></div>Apple’s subject on receipts read out a lengthy order number such as “Your receipt No. 110110356508″ before the refresh, but the company’s updated template uses a clearer and friendlier “Your receipt from Apple.” line in this field. Instead of putting the rather lengthy number in the subject area of your inbox, the updated format includes a new “Document No.” field where it includes this number.</p>
<p>Perhaps more importantly, the new invoice format includes a description of what device the purchase originated from, which could be handy in tracking down suspicious purchases or knowing who in the family made all of those in-app purchases. The new format also appears to support higher resolution images that are clearer on the Retina displays found on Apple’s products.</p>
<p>Below is the previously used invoice design:</p>
<p><img title="Apple refreshes iTunes receipts with a new design, 'purchased from' field" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-382168" src="https://9to5mac.file...ng?w=704&h=621"alt="iTunes Receipt" width="704" height="621" /></p>
<p>Here is the refreshed invoice format:<br /><img title="Apple refreshes iTunes receipts with a new design, 'purchased from' field" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-382167" src="https://9to5mac.file...pg?w=704&h=950"alt="applereceipt" width="704" height="950" /></p>
