Apple Plans on Combining iPhone, iPad, Mac Apps by 2021

Other Brands

Apple Inc. wants to make it easier for software coders to create tools, games and other applications for its main devices in one fell swoop -- an overhaul designed to encourage app development and, ultimately, boost revenue.

The aim of the multistep initiative, code-named “Marzipan,” is that by 2021, developers will be able to build an app once and have it work on the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers, people familiar with the effort said. That should spur the creation of new software, increasing the utility of the company’s gadgets.

Each new app is another revenue opportunity for Apple because it takes a cut of many app-related purchases and subscriptions. The company has positioned its services division as a major growth area. It plans to announce two new services -- a premium Apple News subscription offering and an original video content initiative -- at the end of March, Bloomberg News reported recently.In 2020, Apple plans to expand the kit so iPhone applications can be converted into Mac apps in the same way. Apple engineers have found this challenging because iPhone screens are so much smaller than Mac computer displays.

By 2021, developers will be able to merge iPhone, iPad, and Mac applications into one app or what is known as a “single binary.” This means developers won’t have to submit their work to different Apple App Stores, allowing iOS apps to be downloaded directly from Mac computers -- effectively combining the stores.

The plans are fluid and could be altered, the people said. They asked not to be identified discussing private matters. A spokeswoman for Cupertino, California-based Apple declined to comment.
The most direct benefit of the Marzipan project will be to make life easier for the millions of developers who write software for Apple’s devices. For example, later this year Netflix Inc. would be able to more easily offer a Mac app for watching video by converting its iPad app. By 2021, Twitter Inc., which has mostly abandoned the Mac, could publish a single app for all Apple customers.

Apple previewed the apps plan, without disclosing the road map, at its developers conference last year. Bloomberg News first wrote about the initiative in 2017.

The work coincides with the company’s preparations to merge more of the underpinnings of its hardware. Currently, iPhones and iPads are powered by Apple processors, while Macs use Intel Corp. chips. Apple plans to start transitioning some Macs to its own chips as early as 2020, Bloomberg News reported last year.

Despite the app merger plan, Apple has said it won’t combine iOS and macOS into a single operating system.

Apple isn’t the first company to streamline its app ecosystems. Before Microsoft Corp. discontinued Windows for phones, it pushed a technology called Universal Windows Platform that let developers create single applications that would run on all of its devices. Similarly, Google has brought its Android mobile app store to some laptops running its Chrome OS operating system.

Apple plans to hold its annual software conference from June 3 to June 7 in San Jose, California, according to permit filings reported recently by website MacRumors.

At the event, Apple also plans to debut new software features for its devices, including a dark mode for easier nighttime viewing and new productivity tools for the iPad. The company has also internally weighed previewing a new version of the high-end Mac Pro, according to people familiar with the deliberations.

Dior Saddle Chain Clutch

Other Brands

Not in love with the Dior Saddle Bag? But you are crazy about the concept. How about the Dior Saddle Clutch With Chain? Enjoy the exact same features but carry the bag in rectangle shape.

The only question left is: ‘which color?’.

The Design

Just like the Wallet On Chain, the Saddle Chain Clutch is the perfect day to evening bag in mini shape. However, we do not belief the interior space differ much from the Saddle Bag.

The Saddle Chain Clutch is available in single color leathers or multicolor canvas. While the shape is rectangle (and we absolute love that), the other details remain the same as the Saddle Bag. For example, the flap is lined like a Saddle and it features two leather tassels with one attached to the D for Dior logo.

The Bijoux Chain is absolutely amazing and ladylike. The chain is 120 cm and can be used to carry on the shoulder or crossbody. And we also adore the gold hardware.

What’s more? Remove the chain to transform the bag from a day bag to a clutch bag.

The Interior

The inside of the bag is not huge but it’s crafted with useful compartments. There are 4 card slots, 1 flat pocket and 1 zipped pocket available.

The Sizes And Prices

Measuring 22 x 14.5 x 3.5 cm, priced at €1600 EUR, £1450 GBP, ₩2500000 WON via Dior boutique.

Everything You Need to Know About Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018

It’s that time of the year again – the angels are back. Brace yourself, for the phenomenal Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (VSFS) will be making waves all across the internet very soon.

No Place Like Home: Models to Walk the New York Runway

VS learned a painful lesson after last year’s disastrous China debut in Shanghai that safe is always better than sorry. As announced on the brand’s Instagram, this year they’ll be bringing the sensational catwalk back home to the Big Apple, America’s fashion capital.

The brand moved too fast and hastily with their Asia premier a year ago, evidently. Russian and Ukrainian models unable to get the appropriate visas were denied entry at the Chinese borders, Gigi Hadid and Katy Perry, the two biggest stars set to grace the stage were pulled and turned away respectively due to sensitivity issues of different natures, and the international press was banned from filming and covering the show. Unable to live up to the hype of a grand Asia takeover, the show lost its usual luster last year due to the scandals.

So, after two rather experimental years abroad – first in Paris then in Shanghai, VS Fashion Show 2018 is ready to return home.

A Lineup that celebrates womanhood: Winnie Harlow, Ming Xi, Behati Prinsloo & more

A diverse profile of models will be sent down the runway this year in the brand’s latest effort to make an inclusivity statement, and among them is first-time-Angel Winnie Harlow. Despite her status as an established industry icon and international supermodel, this will be Harlow’s first time gracing the runway alongside other Angels. Known for her unique Jolie laide look due to vitiligo, a condition that causes localized losses of skin pigments, the hugely successful 24-year old model has gained a massive 4.5M following on Instagram alone. But beyond skin-deep, she’s loved and respected worldwide for vocalizing the more important accompanying issues of self-confidence and inclusion. Fans are overjoyed to see Winnie and the ultra-feminine lingerie brand joining hands in redefining the standards of beauty.

Not only is this year’s show arguably more racially diverse than ever with the presence of ethnic models such as Ming Xi and Duckie Thot, equally uplifting is the fact that motherhood is celebrated with the post-labor return of Behati Prinsloo after a 2-year break from her angel wings. The 30-year old mother is as fit as ever and once again ready to take the world by storm. The 2018 show shall see not only a strikingly visual impact, but a meaningful one that speaks to contemporary women, too.

A Star-studded runway: Gigi and Kendall’s places confirmed

The long-awaited reveal that Gigi and Kendall are booked for the show was made not by the models themselves, but by shoe designer Brian Atwood on his Instagram (@brian_atwood) post on 19 October. Brian, in his extensive caption, shares that he is over the moon to learn that the industry’s favorite pair of model-cum-influencers will be walking down the runway in his larger than life creations in a month’s time.

What about Bella Hadid? According to sources, it hasn’t yet been confirmed whether the weeknd’s girlfriend will be a part of the show. Let’s hope she breaks the story on IG soon.

Show Date: 1-month countdown!

Like every year, the exact show date is not released until nearer the time. All we know is that it will be happening in more or less a month’s time. Stay tuned on the brand’s Instagram for the latest news.

How to watch Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018

Catch the glamour on streaming platforms such as CBS All Access, Hulu Live or tune in the show on your local TV channel.

If you decide to stream it, you can speed up your internet speed by overcoming (possible) ISP bandwidth-throttling with a VPN that is optimized for streaming the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018 in HD.

And voilà! You’re all set to enjoy the annual global celebration of beautiful lingerie. Now go ahead and stalk your favorite VS Angels for some juicy BTS snippets as they sculpt their godly bodies into literally, the shape of an Angel!
