Fascinating short films highlighting the power of iMac Pro

Apple has recently called on CG artists and graphic designers to make a series of short films using the advanced technologies of iMac Pro to show how powerful the iMac Pro is as powerful which has been introduced as the “Most Powerful Mac”.

A group of artists, including creator Erin Sarofsky, graphic designer Esteban Diacano, 3D artist Luigi Honarat, director and designer Michelle Dougherty, accepted Apple’s call and took 6 short films, taking the iMac Pro to the production hub.

The resulting short commercials do not look too bad. Apple, along with commercials, has also released backstage footage of the development process of these films.

You can watch 6 commercials filmini and behind-the-scenes footage created using iMac Pro on Apple’s specially prepared webpage:

To demonstrate the power of iMac Pro, Apple invited a group of renowned filmmakers, CG artists, and motion graphics designers to create a personal piece of work using its advanced technologies. The project was an opportunity for each of them to use this incredibly capable tool to define power through the films they made. From concept development through final preparations for render, iMac Pro proved to be the ultimate creative partner.

Apple has shared commercials created with iMac Pro on YouTube, albeit not all of them.

More about iMac Pro

An iMac with 4 cores is remarkable enough. But an iMac with 8, 10, 14, or 18 cores is an entirely different creature. Add Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.5GHz, and iMac Pro has the power and flexibility to balance multicore processing with single-thread performance. With new AVX-512 vector instructions and a new cache architecture, the processor handles even more data — even more quickly. Which means you can render images, edit up to 8K video, manipulate photos, create real-time audio effects, or compile your next five-star app — all at lightning speed.

Featuring Radeon Pro Vega graphics, iMac Pro delivers the best workstation-class graphics of any Mac. The first Mac with Vega architecture features up to 16GB of High Bandwidth Memory, which helps deliver a major jump in performance — up to two times faster than any other iMac GPU and up to three times faster than the GPU in Mac Pro. This translates to higher frame rates for VR, real-time 3D rendering, more lifelike special effects, and gameplay at max settings. It also supports both single- and half-precision computing, so operations that don’t require a full 32 bits of precision can be performed twice as fast. How fast? Up to 22 teraflops fast.

Apple Products for Graphic Designers (With Price Tags)

When it came to colour accuracy and typography, Macs are always at the forefront of the desktop publishing revolution, among its other PC rivals. As a graphic designer, You want a machine that has a pin-sharp screen and delightful-to-use mouse. 

Why Apple products are more popular among graphic designers?

This is due to several factors: reliability; excellent niche apps only available for Mac (such as Sketch); and Macs looking a lot nicer than PCs. (Designers pay attention to style!)

Adobe Photoshop Was Born on the Mac

30 Years Ago (1988) John and Thomas Knoll built the first version of Photoshop on a Macintosh Computer, because it was essentially the only computer with a color display and the capacity to handle the program they were building. It was released exclusively for the Mac in 1990 (a Windows version followed over two years later). This kind of caused to a tradition and for those people for running graphic design programmes there were Macs at first.

What are Best Selling Apple Products?

Over the years Apple has released so many popular products many of which have changed the way people use technology. For example, iPod was a crashing change in the way we were listening to music. iPhone became the meaning of what a smart phone is with its unique practical usage.

In a crowd of people there would always be majority of people using Apple products or most of the people in that crowd would have an iPad at their homes. You can encounter with Macbook Air people working at local coffee shops around places. With its ultra-thin and ultra-portable design Macbook Air became one of the best-selling Apple products.

Let’s see what Apple’s best-selling products are now!

When you ask what the best-selling apple products are the first one comes from the list is:


The iPhone is one of the best-selling products of all time. Apple introduced the iPhone in 2007, kicking off a major revolution in smartphone design. The first two models, a 4 GB version and an 8 GB version, cost $499 and $599, respectively. In the first five quarters of the iPhone’s availability, Apple sold 6.1 million units. More recent models of the iPhone now account for the majority of Apple’s revenue, and Apple recently announced that it has sold one billion iPhones.

iPhone 5s

The iPhone proved to be a big hit and get people talking, but not until the iPhone 5s did Apple truly show the capabilities of how a smartphone could overtake the PC and other mobile devices for all your computing needs. The 5s is 4-inches, the same size as the previous iPhone 5, and incorporates TouchID which was a unique progress.

Apple II

Apple II was Built just 12 months after the Apple I, it was launched in 1977. At the time, it was the fastest-selling personal computer, and was one of the first to feature color graphics. The Apple II was designed primarily by Wozniak.It came with two gaming paddles, and had eight slots that enabled users to expand and customize it by adding more memory, better graphics, or connecting a printer and floppy drive. Apple’s first big-time computer’s price was $1,298.

The Macintosh

Apple failed with the Apple III, then Steve Wozniak said that it was designed by the company’s marketing department instead of its engineering team later on. But once in 1984, Steve Jobs unveiled the Macintosh in a Super Bowl commercial, things turned out to be great for Apple.

The Macintosh came with a monitor, a keyboard, and a mouse, and revolutionized computing with its graphical user interface (GUI). It’s price was $2,495.


Apple introduced iTunes, a digital jukebox of sorts, in January 2001. The program’s big innovation was allowing a user to store all the songs on a computer in one place. With iTunes, users could now burn CDs and purchase MP3s, albums, movies, TV shows, books, and other forms of content all straight from the platform.

Other Apple best-selling products are Macbook, iPad, iOS App Store.

What Are The Most Expensive Apple Products?

Apple has always been in the market with its well-known reputation. From phones to computers, tablets to cases, if it’s coming from Apple, it will probably be one of the priciest options available.

Apple sells its cheapest computer for $599. The Mac mini sold for $599 does not include a display, either. The most expensive Apple product listed on the store’s website is the 12-core Mac pro for $3,799

Apple Employee Hoodie

One employee decides to put the item up on eBay along with an Apple beanie. The auction ends up closing for over $2,000. The buyer could have bought an iPad, 13″ MacBook Pro or 27″ iMac instead and he or she still would have had some change left.

20th Anniversary Macintosh

It was Introduced in 1997, the 20th anniversary Macintosh, nicknamed TAM, was released with a limited production run of roughly 12,000 units. Created by legendary Apple product designer Jonathan Ive, the computer was the cutting-edge technology of its day. TAM boasted a $7,499 price tag, making the computer one of the most expensive Apple computers ever released.

The Macintosh IIfx

After the success of the relatively low-cost Macintosh, Apple released the Macintosh II in 1987. It was the first Mac to feature a color screen, and the first Mac that separated the display from the CPU. It was released in 1990 and its price was $9000. The Macintosh IIfx’s inflation-adjusted price is $14,900.

Apple Watch Edition (2015) — $17,000

The most expensive Apple Watch appears to be the high-end Apple Watch Edition 38mm 18-karat yellow gold case with bright red modern buckle. The cost for Apple Watch Edition is $17,000.

Apple LISA (1985) — $9,995

Starting Price: $9,995

With Inflation: $21,600

Should You Buy An iPhone X: Cons and Pros

iPhone X is among the most popular phones in the world. Both its price and other features have become a big deal for tech lovers. So, we prepared a quick list to compare the good and bad features of the smart phone. Take a look at them and you decide if it is good for you or not!


Bigger, Better Screen

The most remarkable feature of the iPhone X is that its screen is much better and bigger than any other iPhone. It has the highest pixel capacity so far and features full HD OLED and True Tone technology. This provides us better viewing experiences in any sort of videos and photos.

Its body size is smaller than the 8 Plus. But thanks to its screen which goes edge to edge, it offers us 5.8-inch screen while the iPhone 8’s screen is 4.7-inch.

Minimalist Design

There is no more “home button” in iPhone X. So, we are faced with new gestures to command, like swiping ups and downs so as to switch between apps.

Face ID works well

Another innovation on the iPhone X is Facial ID. This new feature lets users to unlock his phone simply by looking at front TrueDepth camera. Face ID works also for authenticating mobile payments. Even though it is a bit slower than Touch ID, we can say that it is more practical to use since you don’t need your fingers anymore. And even in the dark or in bright sunlight, Face ID works well. And if you wonder whether it works while you are wearing sunglasses or hat, the answer is yes, Face ID recognizes you in any way.

Natural-looking Photos

Dual cameras of the iPhone X provides superior photos which have more natural colors, better details in the shadows and improved texture. Also, the zooming is ameliorated.


Awesome Selfies

“Portrait Lighting” mode lets you take photos in a professional style. Choices include Contour Light (which adds shadows to contour the face), Stage Light (which completely removes the background) and others.

Wireless Charging

Without any cable, you can charge your phone on a charging mat.

Animojis are fun

Face ID is also used to create Animojis. Turning yourself into one of the 12 character, you can share it with your friend


  • Closing or opening apps differently without home button may be troublesome to get used to in the beginning.
  • The iPhone X is one of the most expensive phones ever. The base price is fixed at $1,000.
  • The notch at the top of the phone for the front-facing camera is criticized by some as interrupting the view of the screen.

When Will iOS 12 Be Promoted?

The date of WWDC 2018, where Apple introduces new software every year, has begun to be clarified. It is actually one of the biggest event in the world because global tech lovers keep waiting for it for the rest of the year. This is the time we are officially informed of new Apple softwares and products such as iOS 12 and iPhone SE 2. Well, when will this event be organized in 2018?

When will iOS 12 be promoted?

Apple is organizing an event for developers and other tech lovers every June. Known as the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), this event introduces new software for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV and Apple Watch. Apart from the software, the new MacBook models are also introduced.

WWDC-2018-ios 12

There is no official statement from Apple about when WWDC 2018 will be held. It is estimated that the company will choose the McEnery Convention Center in California like the event in the previous year. The McEnery Convention Center is reserved for other events to be held during the second, third and fourth weeks of June. The first week of June (4-8 June) looks available on the reservation list of the congress center.

Apple does not have Apple’s name on the list of the congress center until the announcement of the event dates. For this reason we can say that WWDC 2018 will take place between June 4-8. iOS 12 is also likely to be promoted on Monday, June 4, the first day of your event.

On WWDC 2018, iOS 12, macOS 10.14, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12 will be introduced. The event is expected to introduce new Macbook models and the iPad Pro with Face ID, as well.

In the past year, 5000 developers and 1000 Apple engineers attended the conference and the ticket prices are around $1,599. Tickets are offered as a result of the lottery drawn between those who want to participate in the event.

Are Release Date and Feature of iPhone SE 2 Clear?

According to information given on the China-based website, it is claimed to promote the iPhone SE 2 model at WWDC 2018, the gigantic event where Apple is meeting with software developers. Despite the fact that many of the arguments make sense, some of the details reveals that this is not a total information, but the estimation.

Before making sure of the release date, let’s have a look at the features of iPhone SE 2.

What will the iPhone SE 2 offer?

The A10 processor, with 2 GB of RAM and two storage options of 32 GB or 128 GB, is expected to continue to use the Touch ID security system instead of switching to Face ID. Apple wants to keep Touch ID in order to keep up with iOS 12 and keep costs low. In SE 2, which will be a model that Apple considers the costs, Apple’s previous generation of processors will be preferred.

iphone se 2 release

Along with this information, it is claimed that the screen size will increase to 4.2 inches. If there is such a change, the rate may be effective even if it plays a lot, but it can change the entire design language. This change is unquestionable that the SE series will affect the comfort of use.

Except for this information, according to the KGI report, there was an allegation that we could face a refurbished SE model with 4.7″ screen and wireless charging doping. However, the date of the report was quite old. KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo denied claims about radically changing screen-to-screen ratio, wireless charging support, and 3D sensing.

Since summer, rumors are circulating about iPhone SE. Ming-Chi Kuo stated that he did not hear anything about such innovations, and that such and such estimates are a speculation. If we were to quickly sort out the described and definite technical specifications of the device:

  • 4.2 inch HD screen
  • Apple A10 chipset
  • 2 GB RAM and 32 – 128 GB ROM
  • 5 Mp front camera, 12 Mp rear camera
  • 1700 mAh battery

HomePod arrived February 9, Have You Seen?

HomePod, the innovative wireless speaker from Apple, arrives in stores beginning Friday, February 9 and is available to order online this Friday, January 26 in the US, UK and Australia. HomePod will arrive in France and Germany this spring.

HomePod delivers stunning audio quality wherever it’s placed — in any room in the house, playing any style of music. Using just your voice, it’s easy and fun to use, and works together with an Apple Music subscription for a breakthrough music experience, providing access to one of the world’s largest cloud music libraries.

Siri, now actively used on over half a billion devices, has developed a deep knowledge of music and understands your preferences and tastes. And with Siri, HomePod can send a message, set a timer, play a podcast, check the news, sports, traffic and weather, and even control a wide range of HomeKit smart home accessories.

homepod arrived

“HomePod is a magical new music experience from Apple. It brings advanced audio technologies like beam-forming tweeters, a high-excursion woofer and automatic spatial awareness, together with the entire Apple Music catalog and the latest Siri intelligence, in a simple, beautiful design that is so much fun to use,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

“We’re so excited for people to get HomePod into their homes, apartments and businesses to hear it for themselves. We think they will be blown away by the audio quality. The team has worked to give Siri a deeper knowledge of music so that you can ask to play virtually anything from your personal favorites to the latest chart-topping releases, simply by saying ‘Hey Siri.’”

Audio Innovations and Technologies

At just under 7 inches tall, HomePod represents years of hardware and software innovation:

  • Packed with Apple-engineered audio technology, HomePod uses advanced software for real-time acoustic modeling, audio beam-forming, echo cancellation and more, powered by Apple’s A8 chip, delivering a wide, spacious soundstage. Using spatial awareness to sense its location in the room, it automatically adjusts the audio to sound great wherever it is placed.
  • HomePod features a large, Apple-designed woofer for deep, clean bass, a custom array of seven beam-forming tweeters that provide pure high frequency acoustics with directional control, and powerful technologies that preserve the richness and intent of original recordings. With an array of six microphones, HomePod can hear “Hey Siri” from across the room, even when loud music is playing.
  • Setup is as easy and intuitive as setting up AirPods — simply hold an iPhone next to HomePod and it’s ready to start playing music in seconds. The Siri waveform appears on the top to indicate when Siri is engaged, and integrated touch controls also allow easy navigation.

How to check iPhone processor speed?

How affected are Apple’s deliberately slowing iPhone models? iPhone processor speed can be easily controlled. The repercussions of explaining that Apple is slowing iPhones that are in bad condition are still continuing. In the past days, the company started apologizing for this situation with a discounted battery exchange program. But users do not seem to even satisfy this application.

To check processor speed

After Apple’s announcement, many users learned the battery health of their phones through various applications and Apple Support. How bad is your iPhone’s CPU speed if your battery is bad? You can easily find the answer to this question with an App Store app.

With Lirum Device Info Lite, iPhone processor speed can be learned. It is described as:

Lirum Device Info Lite is the most complete and elegant application to retrieve specifications of your device. You will be able to monitor its performance, watch real time CPU usage graphs, and discover a lot more about your iDevice.
It’s a system monitor and diagnostic tool for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

You can find out if your iPhone’s processor is slowing down by following these steps.

Step 1: Download Lirum Device Info Lite from the App Store. You can use this link to download Lirum Device Info Lite which is free.

Step 2: Start the app and touch the Options button when you click the Options button in the top left corner of the screen.

Step 3: Touch the CPU.

This metric must have the same or very close values. If your phone is too hot or in low power mode, the clock speed may be low. Under normal conditions, the phone should be equal to the original processor speed.

As you can see, there is no loss in processor speed (1.4 GHz) of our 3.5 year old iPhone 6 device with battery health of 88%. If the numbers on your phone are different, then it is time to change the battery.

What’s coming with iOS 11.3?

Performance issue is being resolved with iOS 11.3, the next version of iOS operating system. In addition, Apple announced the coming innovations with iOS 11.3 on its website. Let’s take a look at the innovations that will come together.

Test results of IOS 11.3, which is made available for developers, emerged. It can be seen that performance in published GeekBench scores clearly increased.

The single core result has risen from 1306 to 1510. In the test where all the cores are used, the scissors in the middle is getting more open. The multi-core score of 2247 goes up to 1621 with the 11.3 version.

New Animoji Characters

The animation that comes with iPhone X, thanks to TrueDepth camera technology, allows you to send emoticons in three dimensions by sensing your facial expressions.

With iOS 11.3, there are 4 new animations. These are lions, bears, dragons and skulls. With these 4 animations, there will be a total of 16 animations that iPhone users can use.

Augmented Reality technology was one of the issues that became important with iOS 11. With iOS 11.3, the operating system’s AR technology goes even further. With ARKit 1.5, which comes with iOS 11.3, horizontal surfaces such as tables and chairs can now be detected on vertical surfaces such as walls or doors. At the same time, the ARKit is now able to perceive items with irregular shapes such as a round table.

On the other hand, another feature that comes to mind about AR is 2D stuff. Plates, posters or works of art can now be perceived by ARKIT. The user will be able to interactively view 2D items on the camera. For example, by reading the poster of a work of art in a museum, you will be able to see and experience the 3-dimensional state of that work on your phone. Finally, for ARKIT, the camera will offer 50% better resolution and will have support for auto focus.

iOS 11.3 apple

Battery and Performance

New information is added to the Battery tab in the Settings app with iOS 11.3. Users may have information about the health of the battery under the battery tab and whether it should take it away.

Let’s just say that this feature will only be available after iPhone 6 and later.

At the same time, the power management system, which reduces the processor speed, can be turned off in case of short battery life and shortened battery life in order to extend the life of the device.

Commercial chat feature

Another feature that comes to the fore in iOS 11.3 is commercial chat. Offered under the name Business Chat, this feature allows customers to communicate with the organization only by messaging without having to go to or search for the institution. This feature, which will be released as Beta with 11.3, will initially be supported by Wells Fargo, Hilton, Lowe’s, Discover and a number of other companies.

The customer will be able to make hotel reservations through Apple Payments by messaging with the relevant institution. Yada will be able to purchase a chair that she likes to chat with Lowe’s. If the feature will be coming to Turkey and it will be supported by the company which is currently unclear. One of the highlighted features is that Apple does not forward the contact information of the client to the related companies.

Tim Cook’s graduation talk was announced with Animoji!

Duke University announces Tim Cook’s graduation talks to be held in May with an Animoji video on YouTube.

Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, graduated from Duke University in 1988. As a graduate student, Tim Cook will make a speech on graduation ceremony on May 13th and this event has turned into a great gesture from the University of Duke.

Tim Cook in Animoji videos

Duke University announces in the form of Animoji that Tim Cook will speak on graduation via YouTube channel. Tim Cook is probably Duke’s most famous alum at the moment, so it makes sense that he accepted to speak to the graduating students in May, but the foxy form he appears in at the end of the video shows how proud Apple is of its iPhone X’s FaceID and Animoji creations.

You can watch the Animoji video here, which Tim Cook also plays.

Duke University President Vincent E. Price made the announcement, touting Cook’s accomplishments at both Apple and in his advocacy for social justice. Duke’s graduation will be held on Sunday, May 13, 2018.

“I am absolutely delighted that Tim Cook will be returning to campus as this spring’s commencement speaker,” said Price. “Throughout his career, Tim has embodied Duke’s values of innovation and service to society, whether through his contributions to Apple’s groundbreaking technology or his advocacy for social justice. I can imagine no better person, and no bigger Duke fan, to inspire the Class of 2018.”

Thanks to the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera system on the iPhoneX, Animoji has become popular with karaoke videos in a short period of time. Animoji, which is quite fun to use in everyday life, has given also a pleasing news when it is used in an announcement.

We anticipate adding new features to the Animoji options with future iOS updates in the upcoming period.

How to test iPhone battery?

Apple has made a scandalous statement in recent days, saying that iPhone slows down because of battery health drops. Although they apologized to the users upon reactions, users want to be aware of the iPhone battery test.

iPhone battery test is easy!

It is quite easy for iPhone users to test the health of their batteries, and it is now possible to see the status of your battery in a very simple way thanks to the well-known application called Battery Life, developed by a developer named Victor Robinson. This application, which has a fairly simple interface, is available free of charge on the AppStore.

You can download the Battery Life application using this link and measure your iPhone battery health. The app is described as “Did you ever worry about your battery? Battery Life give you information to let our know more about your devices’ battery.” on AppStore.

It is already rated by 81 users and it got 3.5 points out of 5. One of the users also left a comment indicating, “Need to improve visuality. Other things work good. Can see design capacity. It’s done.” This comment is accompanied by a 5 stars.

Get a Discounted Battery From Apple

Since Apple’s confessed to slowing down old iPhones with degraded batteries, the company has gone on to offer a discount on replacement batteries, after classifying them as consumable components. It will also update iOS 11 itself to include more detailed information about your battery.

Instead of the usual $79 charge for replacing a battery out of warranty, you can get it replaced by Apple for $29 beginning in late January 2018. The company will release more details about the process “soon,” according to a press release.

If you’ve got a bad battery, you could always replace it at the Apple Store. You could also take it to a smartphone repair retailer, though you’ll be paying an estimated $69.99, which seems a bit steep compared to the alternative.

IOS update about slow iPhone is on the way!

Apple CEO Tim Cook came up with an explanation on iPhones that are slowing down. Cook said that with an iOS update, users would be able to enrich the iPhone’s performance.

Apple’s iPhones are slowing down and this issue is protecting the place on the agenda due to lawsuits and explanations. A feature that the company adds to iOS versions in order to prevent iPhone from closing down due to battery problems is slowing iPhone down.

There was general consensus among users that Apple slowed iPhone with every iOS update. This situation became clear with the admission from the company regarding the matter. Apple apologized to users and made serious discounts on battery replacement. However, users continue to react to this policy of the company.

People are getting angry at Apple

This reaction has turned into a mass action. Recently in South Korea, 370,000 people applied to the court for the slow iPhone. This has probably caused Apple to take more serious steps in the matter. Tim Cook, who has not commented on the subject so far, said they would come up with an iOS update that would prevent iPhones from slowing down in a statement to ABC News.

The update that Tim Cook mentions is about whether users’ iPhone performance will be lowered. The user will be able to use the device with full performance if they prefer. Cook said that iPhone owners would be able to get rid of the performance degradation they are bringing to prevent the iPhone from closing down one by one.

Cook indicated that the iPhone battery status of the update would also be shown. Apple has previously announced that the company will publish an iOS update to learn the iPhone battery health.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were also included among the iPhones that slowed down depending on the battery condition with iOS 11.2. The update Tim Cook mentioned (probably iOS 11.3) will start testing from February. It will probably be released in March.

Which Countries Are Cheapest to Buy Apple Products?

It is certain that Apple is a world leader in technology and innovation. As a result, its products are highly demanded throughout the world. Due to various production costs and foreign exchange rates, all countries charge different prices to customers. Here we will examine the countries where you can afford an iPhone, an iPad or a Macbook with relative ease.

Apple Prices: US is the Cheapest

United States of America, as Apple’s home country, is one of the places that one can afford Apple products without difficulty. Yet the critical point is that the states usually charge different tax rates and import duties. For example New Hampshire may be a good destination for you compared to Washington, as the former doesn’t charge a sales tax. In Atlantic side, Canada is also preferable when you consider the local purchasing power.

Another destination is United Kingdom. Although the pound has tumbled against dollar, UK is still a considerable place to get an Apple product. Actually, European markets are not as profitable as the ones in US, but they are generally not extremely costly. The Apple prices especially in Luxembourg, Austria and Germany are moderate. But it is not valid for Europe as a whole: Hungary is probably the most expensive place to purchase an Apple product, you should definitely shun it.

When we come to Asian markets, buying Apple products from China or India is relatively expensive. Asian customers prefer buying them from Japan and Hong Kong as the prices in these two countries are reasonable compared to the former two. United Arab Emirates is another place where the price of an Apple product is bearable in terms of US dollars.

These are the countries where you can find an Apple product without having a great difficulty as long as you consider the sales taxes, import duties, various warranty policies of countries and other transaction costs.
