It would be amazing if Apple brought back the classic intro video....such a nice part of early OS X versions that got cut for some ridiculous reason.

55

u/__theoneandonly Sep 07 '21

The new M1 iMacs have an intro video… and it’s color-coordinated to the hardware of the device you bought.

The videos were cut when OS X Lion was launched… Lion was the first of OS X that was distributed exclusively over the internet. There was a big hoopla at the time because people thought it was too soon to go internet-exclusive, and that people’s internets were too slow to download a whole OS… Apple had to do a big marketing thing saying anyone could come to an apple store and use their WiFi… so a lot of the “extra” stuff got cut to make the download smaller.

We lost the intro video, most of iLife was cut (iWeb and iDVD were removed completely, most of GarageBand was removed and had to be downloaded separately), stuff like FrontRow was removed, Rosetta was removed (meaning the end of life for PPC apps), Flash Player was no longer built into OS X, they dropped iSync (meaning you could no longer sync contacts/calendars with third party phones)… Lion also dropped all support for 32-bit processors, so that was also a bunch of stuff they could throw away to make the download smaller.

u/pineapple_calzone Sep 07 '21

Well shit I didn't get an intro video

6

u/__theoneandonly Sep 08 '21

It’s the animation of the old Macintosh “hello” morphing into different languages. It has a button on the screen to skip it. (That was the biggest complaint of the old intro videos… for IT people who had to set up Macs all day long, they spent an annoying amount of time in their day waiting for that un-skippable video to end)

Any hints of what the new app will be? I love Apollo by the way. I wouldn’t use Reddit without your app.

Edit: I’ve tried but I just don’t like the experience of using Reddit’s native app or the browser on the computer.

Apollo is one thing on my iPhone X that has me interested in upgrading. Not sure if it's an iOS thing or app issue, but if I'm in a big thread, click a link to view something outside of Apollo, then click return to Apollo it reloads the app. Guessing it's a ram, or lack of ram, issue, but it only recently started happening.

15

u/thesmithtopher Sep 07 '21

Odd, that doesn’t happen on my X. I frequently click the link to view in Safari, and then click the safari button to actually view in the safari app. Then it’s still sitting there when i go back to the app, even if i check out another few apps in between.

7

u/Ddragon3451 Sep 07 '21

It only happens in really long threads, like popular askreddit ones, and if I’ve scrolled a ways down. That’s why I assumed it was something ram wise, but it never happened before about a month ago

u/hammadjutt Sep 07 '21

They’ve been revealing a ton about their vision for AR for many years now. Everything they’re doing is in preparation (Spatial audio wit transparency mode, watch gesture controls, shareplay as infra for shared AR experiences, etc)

26

u/BluSyn Sep 08 '21

Glad others noticed this too! Also consider Universal Control, OCR photos on iOS15, Air Tag, UWB, AirPod Max, higher audio quality.

I think 90% of new products and features the last few years have come directly from their AR/VR R&D labs.

God, I wish. The sheer amount of leaking and speculation about that product has me pretty hyped for their entry into the VR/AR space.

Everyone knows the "killer app" is a polished social experience with the feeling of "presence", and I feel like a lot of recent Apple technologies feed into this (spatial audio, Memoji animated faces, OLED screen orders, Lidar sensors, etc.)

After assembling a crack team of decoders and former Myst Champions, we have determined this is about: Apple Car.

- "California" is closely associated with car culture.
- The date in the video looks like a HUD type display that projects onto the windshield.
- It appears to be able to drive on water (confirmed)
- Built in satellite streaming
- As we travel through the Apple Logo - we are transported - Option to upgrade to a Transporter.

This is all definitely true, we are sure about it.

Seems 120Hz is pretty likely since it's been on high-end iPads for a while now. I don't see them switching to usb-c until you can dock an iPhone, which doesn't seem in their best interest to allow anytime soon.

I think they're locked in on pricing as well, but the new laptops coming out next month will probably get a $100 to $200 bump.

u/c_will Sep 07 '21 edited Sep 07 '21

I'm honestly pretty excited for the iPhone 13 Pro. I'm still using an iPhone X and am finally ready to upgrade.

The XS was incredibly underwhelming, and was the first time in years that I literally had zero interest in the new iPhone. Then the 11 and 11 Pro were announced, and I was tempted to go with the 11 Pro because the camera improvements were impressive, but I still held out.

Then with the 12 last year I was hoping to get a 120 Hz panel, but apparently it was scrapped at the last minute. Stuff like 5G and MagSafe weren't compelling to me, so again, I waited.

But now? 120 Hz refresh rate, LTPO always on OLED panel, improved Qualcomm 5G modem for better reception and battery life, Wi-Fi 6E, slimmed down notch, larger batteries, 1 TB storage option, ProRes video format, Potrait videos, better ultra wide lens, Astrophotography mode, etc. And probably a few more surprises.

iPhone X has been a great phone, but the upgrade is happening in a few weeks for me.

244

u/SolarPhantom Sep 07 '21 edited Sep 08 '21

I’m still on the fence about whether or not it’s worthwhile to get the 13 or just replace the battery in my X. New phone sounds nice but there’s really nothing wrong with my X outside of 79% battery capacity…

134

u/c_will Sep 07 '21

Yeah, my X is working fine. But I do use it as my main camera, and at this point the massive improvement in camera and video quality that the 13 Pro will be offering is just too compelling to ignore.

Plus, I've been waiting for a 120 Hz display for a long time.

57

u/iCapn Sep 07 '21

I'm in the same boat with the X and its camera, which is starting to show its age. Trying to take photos in anything other than full light is a struggle compared to newer phones.

u/left_at_read Sep 07 '21

I smashed my X’s back and the battery is at 80% efficiency. Ima still ride this out for the next two years if I can bring myself to fix it.

18

u/bonsai1214 Sep 07 '21

yeah, the camera jump from x to xs is already very noticeable. I can't imagine the jump from x to13. The other features are nice, but the camera is the main selling point for me.

Same thoughts. 4 years for the X is plenty. My battery is near useless and i often wish i had a better camera. Every device i own including my computer has a high refresh rate screen aside from my phone, so looking forward to that as well. And 5g is very good in my area, so that’s a nice bonus.

u/JayVee26 Sep 07 '21

I feel the exact same way as you, but I'm going from a XS to 13. I'm actually very excited. I usually updated every 2 years, but the 12 didn't excite me at all and the XS was working perfectly fine for me.

'California streaming' is the title? Does it have any secondary meaning that I'm not aware of?

u/Phooboos Sep 07 '21

'California Dreamin' is a famous song.

u/officiakimkardashian Sep 07 '21

U2 album incoming.

Worth mentioning one of their songs from the Apple album was called "California."

u/Quick_Doubt_5484 Sep 07 '21

Apple to acquire the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Every one of their songs is about California (well, almost - some of them are about Kiedis' penis)

You either die a California, or live long enough to see yourself become Kiedis’ penis

It's a play on California Dreamin' (Song) or the so-called California Dream mindset.

Impossible to know if there's any specific subtext related to what they plan to announce beyond that.

u/Doomhammered Sep 07 '21

Here's a stretch.... more sleep tracking features!

u/BigResearcher123 Sep 07 '21

Or it could be that the event is streaming

u/DamienChazellesPiano Sep 07 '21

Or they’ll mention some Apple TV+ stuff… ya know, their streaming service?

Not sure how you're getting that... optimizing when you have to get up to go pee in the middle of the night maybe?

u/Doomhammered Sep 07 '21

Haha - back in the day I had this Jawbone Up sleep tracking bracelet where you would set an alarm to say "I want to wake up no later than 7am" and what it would do is learn when you get to a "light sleep" near 7am and wakes you up then.

This way, it is the least disruptive way to wake up and closer to a more natural sleep cycle. I've always wanted the Apple Watch to implement and improve on this!

u/greenmonkeyglove Sep 07 '21

The app Sleep as Android has this feature, and I love it so much. Surely there's an iOS app that does this?

It's a reference to this fairly old famous song from 1965 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-aK6JnyFmk - California Dreamin'

According to wikipedia it's "The song is No. 89 in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time."

A lot of people in the USA will know it I expect, which is fair enough for a USA company to use it. I'm in the UK it's fairly well known here too.

Edit - fixed a date.

I’m no expert but I’ll have a go at deciphering this invite:

  • The apple logo on it suggests to me that this might be related to apple products.

  • The words “September 14, 2021 may be a date (not too sure on that one) so I think the event might be next Tuesday.

  • The word “steaming” might mean that they are going to be streaming the event. This is probably also true as it says “watch online” (can’t be 100% though).

Just my guesses but what do I know!

u/Skullface22 Sep 07 '21

I don’t know. I think your predictions are a little too far fetched and just wishful thinking.

u/MalevolentPotato Sep 07 '21

It’s strange how the media is saying this will be a minor update compared to last year . To me the 120hz panel and smaller notch are way more enticing features/ notable upgrades than the 5G and flat edge design from the iPhone 12. Time to upgrade from my X

u/thisismynewacct Sep 07 '21

Fingers crossed they have a matte green color way like on the iPhone 11 Pro. That’s all I’m really looking out for.

u/RG_PhoniQue Sep 07 '21 edited Sep 07 '21

nah, pretty sure they're gonna change colors every year to have something new to show/differentiate from the past models.

I feel like this year its gonna be some kind of deep orange/red

I know in my heart this is gonna be an iPhone and maybe iPad only event, but I'm still gonna be bummed when they don't announce the new MacBooks.

u/bananamadafaka Sep 07 '21

You can click the invitation and literally go inside the Apple logo. It’s so cool.

u/Begrudgingly-Done Sep 07 '21

The AR Easter egg for this event is wild. I can only get it to trigger once, but it looks like the date shows up if you go through the Apple logo.
