“Like music, once you master your Mac’s secret language, the magic happens” Imagine that your Mac keyboard is a guitar fretboard, but instead of contorting your hands to form chord shapes, you’re training them to consign shortcut key combinations to muscle memory.

apple watch: the world best-seller

APPLE HAS ALWAYS BEEN SECRETIVE WHEN IT COMES TO THE NUMBER OF APPLE WATCHES SOLD AROUND THE WORLD. In fact, it doesn’t release any official statistics. You can second-guess as to why this is, but pinpointing just how successful its smartwatch is has always been left in the hands of analyst firms. As far back as 2017, Tim Cook told us that by surpassing watchmaker giant Rolex, Apple Watch had become the world’s best-selling watch. But he didn’t back that up with any figures. Now it’s been widely reported that Apple sold as many Apple Watches as Swiss watchmakers did combined. So that’s huge household names like Swatch, Louis Vuitton, Rolex, Tissot and TAG Heuer. Analytic firm Strategy Analytics reports that Apple sold 30.7 million Apple Watch units worldwide in 2019,…

5 things we learned this month

Could your next iPhone have a crease-free fold in it? iPhone A patent filed in the United States suggests that Apple is exploring the possibility of an iPhone that features a hinge mechanism that prevents the types of unsightly creases that rival manufacturers have been struggling to avoid. “Apple has a long history of assessing technology and only jumping into the market when it feels a particular technology is mature enough or that it can use it in a way that makes a meaningful difference to its products,” analyst Ben Wood told BBC News. “There is little doubt Apple has probably been assessing flexible displays for years behind closed door.” New version of Maps heading Europe’s way this year Apple Maps Apple Maps users in the United States have been treated to a…

multitask with your mac & ios

Though many of us are loath to admit it, we often can’t do two things at once; but your Mac is nevertheless on hand with the facilities to help you do just that, and more. As we use our Macs so much, we tend to revert to form, meaning that our desktops become quickly populated with open folders and app windows. However, a certain built-in utility called Mission Control can change all that in an instant, snapping your clutter into uniformed positions on the desktop and making it easy for you to find what you need without having to manually drag or reduce windows. Then there’s split-screen mode that allows you to block out an untidy, distracting desktop by allowing you to focus on two apps at a time. Or,…

Knowledge base Shooting backlit subjects To capture detail in a backlit subject you could try manually setting the camera’s flash to On. If you’re close enough to the subject then the flash will fill in some of the shadow details. If your camera has a HDR mode then try that. This captures three separate exposures and then combines them into a composite shot that reveals more detail in the shadows and highlights. Brilliance When faced with back-lit subjects this is the first place to start! This clever tool simultaneously lightens the under-exposed shadows, reveals more midtones and reduces highlight brightness to create a more even exposure. Shadows Lighten under-exposed shadows by dragging this slider right. Correctly exposed highlights will remain untouched. If you do need to claw back detail in the brighter areas drag the adjacent…
