This concept video shows some great improvements for iOS 11

 2017 is no different — I still hate concept videos. But Federico Viticci and Sam Beckett teamed up once again to design some of the changes they’d like to see with iOS 11. It’s more convincing than your average concept video. In particular, this video focuses on iOS for the iPad. The Shelf is an interesting new feature. You can pull it down from the top of the screen and… Read More

New leaked images purported to be the molds used to make the new iPhone models have hit the web, surfacing first on Slashleaks. The pics give us a sneak peek at what could be the final design of the upcoming iPhone 8 — the molds fall in line with what we're expecting from Apple in its next line of phones, and appear to be identical to other recently leaked images of a dummy version of the phone.

The images on Slashleaks aren't the only photos of the iPhone 8 molds. Graphic designer and leaker Benjamin Geskin also posted photos of the molds, which look just like the dummy model he first shared back in April. He tweeted that the upcoming iPhone designs have been confirmed by these images — but that ultimately can't be determined until we hear from Apple itself.  Read more...

TwitterFacebook

We've officially gone beyond the iPhone 8 specs and supply chain rumor phase — now we're in full-on production photo leak territory.

Apple’s lack of daycare isn’t an oversight, it’s a feature

TwitterFacebook

After WIRED offered us all a peek into Apple’s new headquarters, one notable fact emerged: there’s no daycare center. Whooooopsie. 

Except this was no mistake. It was a big fat message to anyone who might be contemplating trying to balance family life with their obsessive devotion to their job. And that message reads, in the sleekest font imaginable, “nope.”

The 150-acre campus contains a huge fitness and wellness center and every other amenity you can possibly imagine. Basically everything you’d need to live your life at work. Unless, of course, your life includes children.

Kids are many things, but mostly they are messy. That goes against Apple’s whole vision of how the world should be — and it’s a vision that most of Silicon Valley shares. I’m not talking about being physically messy, though sticky children don’t exactly coordinate with Apple’s pristine white glass aesthetic.  Read more...
