Apple Watch Series 4 FAQ: All your questions about the new Apple Watch, answered

MacWorld - 7 hours 2 min ago

For the first time since its introduction in 2014, the Apple Watch has a new design—and this time it’s a bit more substantial than sticking a red dot on the Digital Crown. For the watch’s fourth generation, Apple has introduced a larger screen and a slightly bigger case, all while retaining the classic styling that made the Apple Watch a worldwide hit.

But the beauty of the new Apple Watch’s isn’t merely skin deep. Apple has updated nearly everything about the watch, inside and out. It’s a whole new generation: familiar, yet overhauled.

What are the specs?

Much as with previous Apple Watch releases, the Series 4 comes in two sizes. But while Series 0-4 measured 38mm for the smaller watch and 42mm for the larger (measured vertically), the new ones are each 2mm larger: 40mm and 44mm.

Google Maps is finally compatible with Apple CarPlay

MacWorld - 11 hours 40 min ago

Since its introduction four years ago, Apple fans have been pleading for the ability to use third-party maps program with CarPlay. Apple’s phone-powered in-dash infotainment software has a lot going for it, but being stuck with Apple Maps was definitely not a feather in its cap.

With iOS 12, our worries are over. Not only is Apple Maps getting dramatically better, but CarPlay is getting an official mapping interface for third-party developers. It takes more than the iOS update to enable CarPlay support, though. The mapping apps themselves need an update.

iPhone Xs, Xs Max review roundup: Beautiful and ‘the best yet,’ but maybe wait for the XR

MacWorld - 15 hours 14 sec ago

With the iPhone Xs and Xs Max set to hit shelves on Friday, the first round of reviews from those Apple deemed worthy to get one early has arrived. And of you haven’t already pre-ordered, you might want to continue waiting.

That’s pretty much what we expected when Apple unveiled its new iPhones last week. As you can tell by their names, the Xs and Xs Max are visually indistinguishable from last year’s iPhone X, save for the larger screen on the Max. Other than those extra pixels (which will cost you an extra hundred bucks) and a new gold color, the improvements over the iPhone X are all on the inside, and that might make it a tricky upgrade, especially for people who bought an iPhone X last year.
