If you’re an Apple fan, you certainly won’t want to miss it. And you don’t have to! Apple is streaming the entire keynote live from 10 a.m. PT on September 12, so you can watch it unfold from the comfort of your couch.
Here’s how to tune in on whatever device you’re using.
Summer’s nearly over, which means you’ll soon be spending a lot of time inside, trying to stay warm. Have fun by picking up some great Mac and PC games at up to 90 percent off their usual price in GOG.com’s huge back to school sale.
Worldwide personal computer shipments are finally making a comeback after a six-year slump in sales.
The latest report from Gartner estimates that during the second quarter of 2018 PC shipments finally grew year-over-year for the first time since the first quarter of 2012. With 1.4% overall growth for the market, PC makers have a lot to be happy about, and Apple’s shipment numbers were some of the best in the bunch.
You might soon be able to team up with friends on PlayStation 4 when playing Fortnite on rival consoles.
Sony has finally said that it is exploring the possibilities of a cross-play “solution” that it hopes will make everyone happy. Microsoft and Nintendo are already allowing gamers to play together, regardless of the device they’re using.
It’s okay to use a PC alongside your Mac, but you’ll find that some of the best macOS features aren’t available in Windows. One of those is Finder’s awesome preview function, but you don’t have to live without it.
QuickLook is a free app that brings the same preview feature to Windows 10’s File Explorer.
A big change Apple is making with macOS Mojave could make it more difficult for indie developers to build cross-platform games.
Apple is pushing game creators to drop OpenGL in favor of its own Metal API, which isn’t supported by third-party platforms. It may mean smaller game development teams are forced to choose between releasing on macOS or other operating systems.
Apple has updated its App Store guidelines to include new rules for remote desktop clients.
Apps can no longer display a “store-like interface” that allows users to “browse, select, or purchase software” they don’t already own, but they can allow transactions if they are processed by a host device.
The change comes just a few weeks after Steam Link for iOS was rejected by Apple because it allowed purchasing inside PC games. It’s not yet clear whether the new rules pave the way for Steam Link’s approval.
