what the imac refresh can tell us about apple’s future products

August tends to be right in the middle of the summer doldrums, the time when everybody goes on vacation and thus news—including tech announcements—are few and far between. Then again, 2020 isn’t your average year, so perhaps it’s not a shock that August saw a departure from the norm with Apple announcing a surprisingly substantial update to the iMac (go. macworld.com/ifaq). My colleague Jason Snell has already expounded upon what the revamp to Apple’s popular desktop means for the future of that product (see page 11), but I think it’s worth it to take a moment and see what we can extrapolate from this update and learn about the future of Apple’s other devices. Apple is no stranger to introducing updates in one device that eventually migrate to the rest of…

phil schiller steps up to apple fellow, greg jozwiak takes over as senior vp of worldwide marketing

After more than 30 years at Apple, Phil Schiller is transitioning his role from Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing to Apple Fellow. Greg Joswiak will be promoted to fill that position. Phil Schiller has been a mainstay of Apple events for as long as anyone can remember. Apple’s press release quotes him as saying: “I first started at Apple when I was 27, this year I turned 60 and it is time for some planned changes in my life. I’ll keep working here as long as they will have me, I bleed six colors, but I also want to make some time in the years ahead for my family, friends, and a few personal projects I care deeply about.” Schiller’s words make it sound as though he is getting ready to retire,…

for once, the mac and ipad lead apple’s record financial results

One of these quarters, Apple’s going to announce financial results that don’t result in some sort of record. Perhaps as soon as next quarter, even. But on in July, Apple announced the results of its financial third quarter of 2020 (go.macworld.com/q320)—and they were an all-time third quarter record. Literally every measurable category went up, year over year. It was so sunny a set of results that Apple CEO Tim Cook seemed almost embarrassed to be reporting such huge growth amid a global pandemic and some powerful social upheaval in the United States. In any event, here’s what I gleaned from the results and Apple’s regular post-results conference call with analysts that might provide some insight about where Apple is and where it might be going next.

hot stuff

ADT BLUE INDOOR CAMERA bluebyadt.com The Blue Indoor Camera offers several features that cost a premium on competing cameras. The first is the ability to set motion detection zones. There are also settings to restrict alerts to certain hours of the day. When the camera is triggered, it will record for up to 10 minutes. The camera offers a 130-degree view, which is plenty wide enough to see most of what’s going on in most rooms. It also packs a carbon monoxide and smoke alarm siren sensor. —MARTYN WILLIAMS MEURAL CANVAS II meural.netgear.com Available in two sizes (16x14 and 19x29 inches), the Meural Canvas II is essentially a digital picture frame. But it’s nothing like the cheap tabletop photo frames introduced in the 1990s. The Meural consists of an Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle LCD panel capable…

google pixel 4a vs. iphone se: can a cheap android handset beat apple’s best-ever budget iphone?

The iPhone SE might be Apple’s unexpected hit of 2020, but there’s a new competitor in town: the Google Pixel 4a (go.macworld.com/4arv). But Google’s newest midrange handset is going to need a lot more than a low price to take on Apple’s mighty budget blockbuster. Here’s how the two smartphones measure up. DESIGN I never thought I’d see the day when Google designs a nicer phone than Apple, but it is hard to deny the Pixel 4a’s good looks. It has relatively slim and uniform bezels all around thanks to its hole-punch camera, an extremely compact and light frame, and a classy all-black exterior. Even with a far-bigger display, the Pixel 4a has similar dimensions and weight as the SE: Pixel 4a: 144 x 69.4 x 8.2mm, 148 grams iPhone SE: 138.4 x 67.3…

how to disable wi-fi on an iphone or ipad and always use cellular data

Sometimes, you want your iPhone or iPad to never connect to Wi-Fi. Instead, you’d prefer it to always use cellular data. You can disable Wi-Fi, but you have to use the right set of options and sequence to ensure it remains off. Why disable Wi-Fi? Sometimes local service is poor or intermittent. While Wi-Fi Assist can help, you may want more reliable and consistent access, and not want to “forget” the flaky Wi-Fi network, as you may need it in the future. (To forget a Wi-Fi network, go to Settings → Wi-Fi while the network is in range, tap the network’s info button (i), and then tap Forget This Network and confirm it.) One Macworld reader explained that they have no broadband, and rely on a combination of two iPhones and a…
