Introduced as a Kickstarter project in 2017, Astropad’s Luna Display adapter turns any iPad into a second wireless display for the Mac.
The Astropad software alone is designed to mirror the Mac’s display to an iPad, while the Luna Display, which plugs into a Mac using Mini DisplayPort or USB-C, extends the Mac display instead of mirroring it.
Once Luna Display is plugged into a Mac and the Luna Display software has been downloaded, a connected iPad serves as an extension of the Mac, letting Mac content be accessed directly from an iPad.
Astropad began taking pre-orders for Luna Display back in July, and with those orders fulfilled, the [...]
Apple has acquired Danish computer vision startup Spektral, according to a paywalled report from Danish newspaper Børsen.
Spektral has developed a technology that can intelligently separate people and objects from their original backgrounds in photos and videos, and overlay a new background, resulting in what is called a „cutout.“ The solution is driven by deep neural networks and spectral graph theory.
The technology can be thought of as real-time „green screen“ processing powered by machine learning algorithms:
Our pioneering and unique technology is based on state-of-the-art machine learning and computer vision techniques. [...]
Greg Joswiak, Apple’s VP of iOS, iPad, and iPhone Product Marketing, recently sat down with Arianna Huffington on the Thrive Global Podcast to discuss the new Screen Time feature that Apple implemented for the iPhone 5s and later in iOS 12.
According to Joswiak, information is the „cornerstone“ of what Apple is doing with Screen Time. The company’s goal is to provide people with information about how they’re using their apps so they can come to their own conclusions about whether they’re happy with their usage statistics.
If you ask people how much they’re using their devices, they can only guess. If you ask them how [...]
A number of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max owners in the Apple Support Communities and MacRumors Forums report that the devices fail to start charging when a Lightning cable is plugged in while the screen is turned off.
As with many crowdsourced issues, experiences vary. In most cases, the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max begins charging once the user wakes the device by tapping or raising the screen. However, some users report having to both wake the iPhone and disconnect and reconnect the Lightning cable to get a charge.
In rarer cases, the iPhone stops responding entirely at some point after a Lightning cable is plugged in while the screen is turned off.
