5 things we learned this month

Apple will be carbon neutral by 2030 This month Apple made the commitment to go carbon neutral in its supply chain and products by 2030, which is 20 years sooner than IPCC targets. Apple is already carbon neutral for its global corporate operations, but this new commitment means that by 2030 every single piece of Apple kit you buy will be carbon neutral in its production. Apple decreased its carbon footprint by 4.3 million metric tons in 2019 through design and recycled content innovations in its products. And over the past 11 years, it has reduced the average energy needed for product use by 73 per cent. To help achieve its new aims, Apple has invented a robot called ‘Dave’, whose job is to disassemble the Taptic Engine in old iPhones for…

welcome to macos big sur

When Apple showcased its successor to macOS 10.15 Catalina at June’s WWDC20 event, its name couldn’t have been more apt. Big Sur, the area in California where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise from the Pacific Ocean to form one of the most beautiful stretches of undeveloped coastline in the world, was chosen as the moniker for macOS version 11.0 (the first time the primary version number has changed in two decades). And like its namesake with its scenic coastal road (leading over that iconic bridge we’ve all flown under in Grand Theft Auto V!), it’s simply stunning. With Apple’s Big Sur announcement came talk of some major new updates to some of the most essential apps on the platform, along with an entirely new design – the biggest cosmetic overhaul since…

monochrome makeover

Knowledge base Using filters Traditional analogue photographers would stick coloured filters over their camera’s lens to change the look of their black-and-white images. For example, a red filter would darken blues. This created dark greyscale skies that helped clouds pop out in their black-and-white prints. The MacOS Photos app can mimic this classic filter effect thanks to its Selective Colour panel. Filters After converting a shot to black and white you can introduce a filtered wash of colour to change its mood. We used the ‘Dramatic Cool’ filter to mimic a classic cyanotype look. Black & White By dragging this slider left or right you can view a wide range of different monochrome looks. We chose the option that darkened the reds of the flowers to make them stand out in contrast with the greyscale background. Options Toggle…
