At WWDC 2017, Apple proved it hasn’t forgotten about its pro users

At WWDC 2017, Apple proved it hasn’t forgotten about its pro users

One of the more interesting narratives to surround Apple in recent years holds that the company has either forgotten or simply doesn't care about pro users anymore. This narrative can arguably be traced back to the company's 2013 Mac Pro design and only picked up steam following the release of Apple's 2016 MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar. As a quick refresher, Apple's flagship MacBook Pro was derided for being overpriced and under-powered, with many users lamenting the fact that Apple's pro-oriented machine could only support 16GB of RAM.

In fact, the backlash against Apple was so strong that Tim Cook and other executives were forced to confront the criticism head on, with Cook stating the following during a company shareholder meeting earlier this year: "You will see us do more in the pro area. The pro area is very important to us. The creative area is very important to us in particular."

Just two months later, Apple executives held a special meeting with select tech outlets where they assured developers and creative professionals that new and advanced pro-oriented hardware was in the product pipeline. Not only did Apple relay that a completely redesigned Mac Pro was on the way, but Phil Schiller made a point of noting that the company was working on iMac configurations developed "specifically with the pro customer in mind."

True to form, Apple at WWDC 2017 demonstrated that its pro users have a lot to look forward to. Aside from supercharging its iPad lineup, Apple updated the entirety of its MacBook line with speedier Kaby Lake processors and faster SSDs. Further, some of Apple's notebooks will now feature more powerful graphics. Apple on Monday also took some time to refresh its iMac lineup, gracing its iconic all-in-one machine with more memory and faster processors.

Of course, the star of show — at least as it pertains to the Mac — was Apple's iMac Pro. Priced at $ 4,999 with an option to max the machine out with 18 core Xeon processors, Apple's brand new iMac is a clear indication that Apple has decidedly not forgotten about its pro user base. In a nutshell, Apple's upcoming iMac Pro is an absolute monster of a machine.

And though the iMac Pro won't ship until December, the fact that Apple announced it so far in advance was a subtle nod to users who have grown impatient with slower product upgrades over the years. In other words, the current MacBook and iMac upgrades and the forthcoming iMac Pro update sends a clear message that Apple not only has exciting new hardware today, but even more exciting and powerful hardware coming down the pipeline. And that's not even to speak of a revamped Mac Pro which, if we're lucky, will be unveiled sometime next year.

WWDC 2017 may not have been the most exciting keynote we've ever seen, but for any consumers who has been patiently waiting for a solid improvement to the Mac, Monday's keynote was nothing short of encouraging.

Trump hasn’t ruled out raising the national debt to cut taxes

Trump hasn’t ruled out raising the national debt to cut taxesWASHINGTON — President Trump may be considering a tax-cut plan that could rankle Republican congressional leadership. While both House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have pushed for deficit-neutral tax cuts, a senior White House official told Yahoo News the president could consider a plan that might add to the national debt. The official cautioned that Trump hasn’t settled on a strategy for tax cuts and said it would be “premature” to say he’s abandoned the deficit-neutral approach.

A word of warning to anyone who hasn’t already updated to iOS 10.3

A word of warning to anyone who hasn’t already updated to iOS 10.3

Earlier this week, Apple put an end to the beta madness and released iOS 10.3 to the public. Don't worry, a new developer beta — iOS 10.3.2 — was promptly released the very next day. We already told you about all the best new features in iOS 10.3, and we also drew attention to one feature in particular, a hidden change that gives the iPhone and iPad a nice little speed boost. If you haven't already updated though, there's one feature that we should warn you about because we've received a handful of emails from people who have run into some serious problems.

Among the behind-the-scenes changes in iOS 10.3, Apple's move to a new file system is clearly the biggest. Prior to iOS 10.3, all iOS devices used the popular HFS+ file system. Beginning with iOS 10.3, however, Apple has moved to the more modern Apple File System (APFS).

There are a number of advantages to switching to Apple's new file system, but the big ones are better optimization for NAND flash storage and SSD storage, more accurate time stamping, and support for stronger encryption. HFS+ is 30 years old at this point, so it was clearly time for a change.

Here's the problem, however: once you update your phone to iOS 10.3 and your file system is converted to APFS, you can no longer roll back without wiping your phone and reinstalling an older iOS build. Why is that significant? Because if something goes wrong and you roll back to an older build, you'll no longer be able to recover data because everything will have been converted to APFS.

So, a word of warning: Back. Up.

If you haven't already upgraded to iOS 10.3, be sure to back up all of your data before you do. This can be done either with iCloud (Settings > iCloud > iCloud Backup > Back Up Now) or by backing up using iTunes. It might take a little while, but waiting a few minutes while your iPhone backs up is much less aggravating than losing some or even all of your data.
