15:33AirTag reviews roundup: They work well but scratch easily
While most of Apple’s Spring Loaded announcements don’t go up for preorder until next week, you can buy the new AirTag trackers beginning Friday, April 23. A few early reviewers got to spend some time with them this week and posted their impressions, and they work as intended, but they’re probably going to get scratched. ...   Mac Central
12:27iOS 15: Lock screen, notification, privacy upgrades reportedly in the...
Last year’s iOS 14 release was one of the best iPhone updates yet. Apple didn’t necessarily deliver everything on our wishlist from last spring, but it made big strides on a surprising number of them, with a massive home screen revamp, huge privacy advancements, and an overdue streamlining of Siri’s UI. ...   Mac Central

18:51Stolen MacBook Pro schematics confirm HDMI, SD card, and MagSafe
Yesterday might have been a big deal for Apple with the launch of the M1 iMac, iPad Pro, and AirTag trackers, but one of Apple’s MacBook suppliers didn’t have such a good day. Bloomberg reports that Quanta Computer Inc, a key supplier for Apple’s MacBooks, was hit with a $50 million ransomware attack by a well-known dark web hacking group REvil. ...   Mac Central

20:53The new 24-inch M1 iMac from every angle
The new iMac ushers in a new colorful chapter in the history of Apple’s all-in-one computer. It is available in seven different shades, and comes with matching input devices and cables. To get a better idea of what the new iMac looks like, take a look at the pictures below. ...   Mac Central
20:42You can upgrade your Siri Remote without buying a new Apple TV
Apple’s Spring Loaded event brought a bunch of new products, but our favorite might be the redesigned Siri Remote.

18:3324-inch M1 iMac: New colors, new chip, and much much more
Silver and black had a good 13-plus-year run, but on Tuesday, Apple put an end to it and started a colorful new chapter for its all-in-one Mac, the iMac. The colors aren’t all that’s new; the iMac features Apple’s new M1 system on a chip, new sizes, and a lot more. ...   Mac Central
17:44iPad Pro (2021): 5 standout features that make the best tablet even...
Apple released a new iPad Pro in 2020—a year and a half after the prior update—but it wasn’t much of a change. A new camera module that included LiDAR and an ultra-wide lens was fine, but the iPad isn’t really the thing people reach for when they want to take great photos. ...   Mac Central
17:20The new Apple TV 4K is all about the redesigned Siri remote
Apple’s Spring Loaded event brought a fast and furious pace of announcements, including a new iMac, AirTags, and Podcasts Subscription service, even a new iPhone color.

The Apple TV 4K itself isn’t a huge upgrade over the prior model. ...   Mac Central

16:25Apple launches a surprise new iPhone 12 color
We weren’t expecting any iPhone news at today’s Spring Loaded event, but Apple threw us a bit of a curveball. Instead of a new model, we got a new color: purple. Apple previously introduced a purple color with the iPhone 11 and now it’s bringing a similar shade to the iPhone 12 and 12 mini (sorry Pro fans). ...   Mac Central
