Twitter Bringing Mac App Back Using Apple’s Project Catalyst

Apple last week unveiled Project Catalyst, an initiative designed to allow developers to port their iPad apps to the Mac.

At the time, Apple named several partners, including Twitter, and today, Twitter provided more detail on its upcoming Mac app.

Twitter says that it will leverage its existing iOS codebase to bring Twitter to the Mac, but will add native Mac features on top of its existing iPad experience to make the app better suited for the Mac.We are excited that Project Catalyst will enable us to bring Twitter back to the Mac by leveraging our existing iOS codebase.

How to Save or Share a Safari Web Page as a PDF in iOS 13

In iOS 13, Apple has extended the system’s built-in screenshot feature to include the ability to save a full web page as a multi-page PDF.

Don’t expect this option to appear when using a third-party browser app like Firefox or Chrome, as it’s only available in Safari, Apple’s native web browser. With that said, here’s how it works.

Launch the Safari app on your iPhone or iPad.

Navigate to the web page that you wish to save as a multi-page PDF.

Press the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button simultaneously to capture a screenshot. If your device doesn’t have a Home button…

On the more imminent front, the 12-inch MacBook is certainly long overdue for an update, having been last refreshed in June 2017. A spec bump to the MacBook Air is also plausible, but its October 2018 refresh was not too long ago.

Looking farther out, we’ve heard rumors about a 16-inch MacBook…

Apple in Talks to Purchase Intel’s German Modem Unit

Apple is in talks to buy Intel’s German modem unit, which could help Apple develop its own modem chips more quickly, reports The Information.

Intel is considering selling its modem business in pieces, and this is not the first time we’ve heard word that Apple’s interested in a purchase. Back in April, The Wall Street Journal said that Apple had held discussions with Intel about acquiring parts of the Intel modem chip business, and apparently, those talks are ongoing.

Any deal between Apple and Intel would likely include Intel patents and products, said one person briefed on the discussions. Such an…

iOS 13 Can Auto-Close Safari Tabs for You Based on When You Last Viewed Them

In iOS 13, Apple has added new functionality in Safari that should enable iPhone and iPad users to better manage their open tabs.

Because of the way Safari for iOS displays tabs in a vertical array, the amount of open tabs in the browser can often get out of hand, and sometimes number in the tens or even hundreds.
@MacRumors this popped up in #ios13 today while doing the close all tabs in safari. Pretty awesome! pic.twitter.com/BnMQsxnTJY— Chris Weaver (@spartanweaver) June 9, 2019

How to Enable Dark Mode in iOS 13

In iOS 13, Apple has included a system-wide Dark Mode option similar to the one it brought to the Mac in 2018 with the release of macOS Mojave.

Dark Mode is designed to be easier on the eyes by providing less harsh display brightness in situations where ambient lighting is lower, while maintaining contrast and vibrancy.
If you have an OLED iPhone, such as an iPhone X, iPhone XS, or iPhone XS Max, enabling Dark Mode may also conserve battery life whenever true blacks are on screen, since black pixels in an OLED panel basically switch off and consume far…

Apple Details iTunes Changes Coming in macOS Catalina

macOS Catalina does away with the iTunes app, a longtime staple of the Mac operating system, which, unsurprisingly, has left many with questions on just how that’s going to work.

To answer questions about the imminent sunsetting of iTunes, Apple has created a support document that explains all of the upcoming changes.

Apple is planning to split iTunes into three apps in macOS Catalina: Music, Podcasts, and TV, which, when combined, will replicate much of the functionality that’s currently available through iTunes in macOS Mojave and earlier versions of macOS.

One of the most frequent questions concerns device management and syncing,…

Craig Federighi Responds to Google’s Subtle ‘Luxury Good’ Dig About Apple Products and Privacy

In a recent op-ed for The New York Times, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that “privacy cannot be a luxury good offered only to people who can afford to buy premium products and services,” a comment that some viewed as a dig at Apple.

Apple’s software engineering chief Craig Federighi has unsurprisingly disagreed with that position in an interview with The Independent, noting that Apple aspires to offer great product experiences that “everyone should have,” while cautioning that the values and business models of other companies “don’t change overnight.””I don’t buy into the luxury good dig,” says…

Health Canada Gives Green Light to ECG App on Apple Watch

The regulatory agency classifies the Apple Watch Series 4 as a Class II medical device, placing it in a “low-to-medium risk” category alongside the likes of contact lenses.

Powerbeats Pro Water Resistance Test: Find Out What Happens if You Drop Apple’s Newest Earbuds in the Toilet

Apple’s new Powerbeats Pro earbuds feature a “reinforced design” for improved “sweat and water resistance” along with an official IPX4 water resistance rating, which means they should be able to hold up to a good amount of moisture.

Still, there were a lot of reports of the Powerbeats 3 failing due to sweat exposure, so we thought we’d test the liquid tolerance of the Powerbeats Pro with a series of water resistance tests.
