Apple has just been granted a patent perfect for the current global situation. The company has patented software that would allow you to take group selfies even if you’re not in the group. In other words: you’ll be able to take a selfie with your friends remotely, while keeping the social distance.
The original iPhone SE was introduced in 2016. It was a low-cost option for those that didn’t need all of the features and size of the larger iPhone 6S/Plus models also available at the time. It had similar hardware inside to the 6S but had the form factor of the iPhone 5S.
People have been wondering if Apple was going to continue this line, now that they’ve expanded out their flagship model into multiple models, and Apple has now answered that question by announcing the new 2020 model iPhone SE.
Dark Sky is a popular weather app among astrophotographers, but it’s soon to become unavailable for Android. Apple has acquired Dark Sky and as of July this year, it will become available for iPhone users only.
ProRes RAW was lauded as a high-end raw video codec for high-end video shooters and editors. But it had one fatal flaw; You could only edit it with a Mac. Well, now that appears to be changing as Apple has released a beta of Apple ProRes RAW for Windows which adds ProRes RAW support to some of the applications in the Adobe CC suite including Premiere Pro, After Effects, Rush and Media Encoder.
The coronavirus has put around 1/3 of the world’s population in isolation, and many individuals and companies are trying to make it easier for everyone. So, after Adobe CC apps and whole Affinity suite, there’s now something for Mac users as well. Apple has extended the trial period of Final Cut Pro X, so you can now get three months of its video editing software for free.
Huge international companies pay close attention to their public image and there’s nothing strange about it. But Apple seems to has gone a tad too far. According to director Rian Johnson, the company bans movie villains from using iPhones in screen.
When it comes to product photography, there are a lot of brands out there who keep a very consistent look and feel to their promotional material. Whether it’s a truck or a toaster, you can immediately tell by the way it’s lit and shot that it belongs to a certain brand.
One such brand is Apple. And while many of their product photos and videos are actually CG, the guys at Syrp have broken down Apple’s techniques to show you how you can shoot it for real.
It looks like Apple’s going a bit nuts on the “shot on iPhone” campaign this year, at least when it comes to video. Selena Gomez recently shot an entire music video with it, albeit one that doesn’t really tax the iPhone’s camera all that much. Now, they’ve put one in the hands John Wick, Deadpool 2 And Hobbs & Shaw director David Leitch.
His creation is a snowball fight of epic proportions called “Snowbrawl”. It’s the type of family Christmas video that the rest of us could only dream of shooting. With any type of camera. As one would expect from somebody like John Leitch, it’s packed full of action, stunts and slow motion.
Apple has just launched the new MacBook Pro, with a 16” instead of 15” screen and modified keyboard. It can be configured with up to 64GB of RAM and have up to 8TB of internal storage, which photographers will definitely find handy.
Macs generally tend to hold their value quite well on the used market, but sometimes you just don’t want to get rid of your old computer when you get a new one. If you rely on photography for your income, having a backup can be vital, especially given the number of repairs and recalls Apple seems to have going on.
But if you don’t want to just leave your old Mac sitting there doing nothing while you work on your new one, you can turn it into a secondary monitor, thanks to the latest version of Luna Display and its new “Mac-to-Mac” mode.
