My Last Vector

68 thousand subscribers. 34 million views. 370 videos. All since launching this channel back in 2018. And I couldn’t have done any of it without you. All of you. Which is why I’m both terrified and excited as hell to tell you… This… is my very last Vector. Ok, hear me out: A few weeks ago, well before what’s happening now started happening, I made the decision to leave iMore, the website I’ve been working at for over a decade, and Future PLC, the company that owns it and the Vector channel, and go indie. Yeah, indie. Not to Apple or Google or Twitter or Microsoft, or any of the other major media outlets either. Just indie. Just me. I deeply, truly appreciate what each and every one of you has done for Vector over the last couple of years. You took it from nothing and made it a smart, considerate, vibrant community and in what feels like no time flat. Even if this many videos also feels like basically forever. Now, the Vector channel is staying here with Future. And they have s...

Why Google Podcasts is now on iPhone [Interview]

iPad Pro 2020 Review

Back in 2018, Apple didn’t just do what they’ve usually done with new iPads — make them thinner, lighter, and faster. Well, yes, of course they did, but they also did something more. They made them modern, with smaller bezels, Face ID, and a new, magnetic, capacitive Apple Pencil. Like with the iPhone X, it was a once-in-a-decade revolution. So, now, some 18 months later, we’re back to evolution — a wider processor, a second, wider camera, an intriguing new LiDAR scanner, and, coming this May, a full-on new laptop mode thanks to a new, scissor-switch and trackpad powered Magic Keyboard. So, how far has it come in 2020?

MacBook Air (2020) Review

The MacBook Air, Apple’s most popular Mac, is fully, finally back. And I don’t say that lightly. In October of 2018, Apple brought the Air out of hibernation and gave it a modern makeover. Mostly.It got the updated design, high density, Retina display, and USB-C interface that made the 12-inch MacBook, its once-and-former-successor, so compelling. But, it also inherited the butterfly keyboard, which was meant to be thinner and more stable, but ultimately proved to be divisive and unreliable. It got Intel’s coreM low-power chipset, which was fine for casual and ultra-mobile workflows, but wasn’t up as robust as the former Air’s Core I. And, it was more expensive. Not than the 12-inch or the initial prices of the previous Airs, but than the low, low price the immediately previous Air had dropped to over the years. Now, some 18 months later, Apple is aiming to fix all of that with an even more modern update. Again, mostly. SPONSOR: CuriosityStream Watch thousands of documentaries ...

Major iOS 14 Leak Analysis

So, here’s what seems to have happened: An internal build of iOS 14, which previous reports have pegged as “Azul”, the Spanish or Portuguese word for “blue”, got leaked. Now, this has happened before. Sometimes they were accidentally left and found on the public web, sometimes someone didn’t get what they want or were upset with someone in their reporting chain, so they had a little tantrum and leaked it, and sometimes someone just wants to see the world, and their team’s work, burn. Regardless, these aren’t betas. Those typically come on keynote day in June. These are internal development builds and are made for internal, developer-fused hardware, and require an internal restore process to run. So, when these builds do leak, you need someone who not only understands code, but code diving and reverse engineering to go through the binary and see what clues can be found in icons, text strings, class names, and more. I am not one of those people. I’m the opposite of one of tho...

Major iOS 14 Leak Analysis

How Apple Can Save WWDC 2020 from (Coronavirus / COVID-19)

GDC, the game developer’s conference, is canceled. Facebook’s F8 conference is canceled. Geneva Auto Show, canceled. South-by-south west, canceled. Several U.S. states have declared emergencies. Italy is on lockdown. Santa Clara County, Silicon Valley, has effectively issued a short-term ban on events. Now, Apple doesn’t typically pre-announce anything. Not products. Not events. But, that Apple will hold a worldwide developers conference — WWDC — the first week of June each year, every year, was one of the safest bets in tech today. Until today. So, if COVID-19, the novel coronavirus, prevents Apple’s from holding it’s annual macOS, iOS, tvOS, watchOS, and now iPadOS, event, what could the company possibly do instead?

How Much Will iPhone 12 Cost?

Rumor has it, Apple will be releasing not three new iPhones like last year, not even four new iPhones, but a whopping 5 new iPhones in 2020. Sure, it’s nothing compared to the 879 new phones Samsung will likely release this year, but for Apple, it’s a lot. Like… a lot a lot. So, why?
