Report: iPad redesign in 2018 will bring slim bezels and Face ID

Macworld - Wed, 11/08/2017 - 14:58

Apple is all-in on Face ID. It’s going to take some time for the manufacturing volume to scale up to the point where it can be on all Apple products, but the iPhone X is definitely not a one-off.

That’s the takeaway from the latest out of Mark Gurman and Alex Webb at Bloomberg. Their report claims that at least one model of iPad—roughly the size of the current 10.5-inch iPad Pro—will enjoy a redesign in 2018. 

What might this redesign look like? The report gives only a few details. You can expect slimmer bezels and no Home button. You should not expect an OLED display like that in the iPhone X, however. That's not really a surprise, as an OLED display of that size would balloon costs, and Apple is unlikely to give up the 120Hz variable refresh rate ProMotion technology in its premium iPad.

Venezuela teeters on brink of default

Top Stories - Wed, 11/08/2017 - 13:41

Longstanding fears of a Venezuela debt default crystallized Wednesday, as the political crisis engulfing the sinking OPEC state deepened with a meeting set at the UN Security Council and the EU eyeing an arms embargo. Investors were bracing for what looked to be an inevitable "credit event" that analysts said could arrive within days -- before a "refinancing and restructuring" of the debt called for by President Nicolas Maduro. While the country's isolation means the risk of contagion to international financial markets is limited, a default could trigger a global rush to seize assets owned by the Venezuelan government and its state oil company PDVSA, and plunge the struggling nation into a full-blown humanitarian emergency.

Lift up your hearts, not your smartphones, pope tells priests

Top Stories - Wed, 11/08/2017 - 13:12

Pope Francis on Wednesday chastised priests and bishops who take pictures with their smartphones during Masses, saying they should focus on God instead. "The priest says 'lift up your hearts'. He does not say, 'lift up your mobile phones to take pictures,'" Francis told tens of thousands of people at his weekly audience in St. Peter's Square, referring to a communion prayer in the Roman Catholic Mass. In his improvised remarks, he called using smartphones during Mass "a very ugly thing," adding: "It makes me very sad when I celebrate (Mass) here in the piazza or in the basilica and I see so many phones held up. Not only by the faithful, but also by some priests and even bishops! "The Mass is not a show ... so remember, no phones!" he said, prompting laughter and applause from the crowd. Francis, the leader of the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, has regularly urged the faithful to be more spiritual and his priests and bishops to be more humble. Shortly after his election in 2013, he said it pained him to see priests driving flashy cars and eager to use the latest smartphone. The pope is driven around in a simple blue Ford Focus and is not known to have ever used a mobile phone in public since his election.
