2019 predictions in review

The best part about making predictions as a member of the press is that almost nobody has a long memory. You predict the future, but by the time the evidence against you has collected, everyone’s moved on to reading your new predictions for the next big thing. It’s quite a racket, or at least, it will be until someone invents Nostalgia. Not me, though. Every year around this time I make a combination of predictions and wishes for the next 12 months. But before I do that, I have to take stock and look back at the year just gone by – and how my predictions and hopes for 2019 fare in the cold light of a December morning. iPhone pricing, iPad advances The big news a year ago was that Apple had…

apple’s most significant moves of 2019

The start of the year – and with it the decade – are here, and both have been busy for the company from Cupertino. There have been new products, the usual number of major and minor controversies, and oh so much rumour and speculation. But let’s stick to the facts. With the new year upon us, it’s time to cast our eyes back over the past 12 months in Apple and pick out the most significant moves and trends – the ones only visible with the benefit of hindsight. Turning pro It’s hard to deny that 2019 wasn’t the biggest year for professional Mac users since the company unveiled the Macintosh IIfx. (That joke’s for you, old timers.) Going into 2019, there was much eager anticipation around the Mac Pro, and say…

best ios games of 2019

Mobile gaming is in an ugly spot, so a popular narrative goes, and that’s why Apple tried to tidy up the situation with its curated Apple Arcade subscription service. And we’re big fans of Apple Arcade. It’s a flawed narrative, though. Look beyond the chaff of flavour of the month, ad-riddled games and microtransaction-heavy ‘freemium’ titles, and you’ll find games that are every bit as good as what you’ll see on Apple Arcade. Some of them are even better. Read on to find our favourites of the past year. Ordia Price: £3.99 from fave.co/2Qxuwmk Ordia plays a lot like Angry Birds: pull back on your avatar with your finger, and it fires off in the direction you aimed in. But that’s about where the similarities end. Here you’re a gloopy eye-like blob ascending…

new year’s resolutions for iphone users

As each new year begins, it is tradition to take some time to reflect on our lives and our habits. We take stock of our lives, our behaviour, and our habits, and we resolve to make some changes in the new year. There’s no reason you shouldn’t resolve to eat better, quit smoking or vaping, get more exercise, keep your house cleaner, or whatever else you have on your list, but don’t leave out your iPhone. We spend hours a day with these little glass rectangles. They contain a stunning amount of information about our lives, and are increasingly an integral part of them. It only makes sense to make New Year’s resolutions that centre around our iPhones. Here are a few suggestions for positive changes you can resolve to make…

2020 ios predictions: ipad pro and so many iphones

All told, 2019 was a relatively quiet year for the iPhone and iPad. Apple brought back some old favourites to round out the iPad product line, and a new batch of incrementally improved iPhones was released in the autumn, as anyone could have predicted. But quiet years aren’t really quiet. They generally mean that at Apple Park, there are projects coming to fruition, only to be sprung on an unsuspecting public the next year. And so, once again, I present one man’s attempt to guess what projects will finally become products in 2020. iPhone: More of the same? The iPhone 11 Plus is the third iteration of the iPhone X and the iPhone 11 is the second iteration of the iPhone XR. Unless Apple has a surprise iPhone redesign up its sleeve,…

what to expect from apple in 2020

Apple’s come a long way in the past decade. Ten years ago, the company had just released the third version of the iPhone and users of the smartphone had only recently been given the ability to cut, copy, and paste things. The iPad was waiting in the wings and the Mac Pro was still on its first cheese grater design. Fast forward to today and so much has changed. Smartphones are part of everyone’s daily lives, the iPad has been through an entire cycle of sales challenges, and the Mac Pro is, well, a cheese grater once again. As we look ahead to the coming 12 months, concrete details are, as always, few and far between. But there’s plenty of speculation about what’s coming down the road, and some of it has…
