How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

In addition to our standalone articles covering the latest news and rumors at MacRumors, this Quick Takes column provides a bite-sized recap of other headlines about Apple and its competitors on weekdays.


Today’s edition of Quick Takes focuses on tidbits from Apple’s education-themed event at Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago today. For bigger news from the event, we’ve put together a roundup of links and a video that recaps everything that Apple announced on stage in under three minutes.

Tuesday, March 27

  • Apple confirms there will be an iOS 11.4 software update: It will be the first point-four version since iOS 8.4 was released with Apple Music in June 2015. iOS 11.3 remains in beta testing, so we’re likely a few months away from the public release of iOS 11.4.

    From the Introducing ClassKit for Education Apps entry in the News and Updates section of Apple’s Developer Program website:

    The ClassKit framework, coming in iOS 11.4, works with a powerful new iPad app called Schoolwork that helps teachers and students keep track of assignments and progress. With ClassKit, you can help teachers easily discover specific learning activities in your app, take students directly to the right activity with a single tap, and securely and privately share progress data to help teachers personalize instruction.

  • Apple Watch’s trade-up program expands: The program is now available online or at Apple Stores in Canada, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and select other countries. Trade-in values for the original Apple Watch, Series 1, and Series 2 models vary.

  • Apple Pencil is now available for $89 with education pricing in the United States: The $10 discount is available to students, educators, and select faculty members. Proof of enrollment or employment at a K-12 or higher-education institution may be required.
  • Apple has further discounted the price of refurbished 2017 iPad models: On the heels of introducing the sixth-generation 9.7-inch iPad, Apple has lowered the prices of refurbished fifth-generation 9.7-inch iPad models, originally released in March 2017.

    In the United States, for example, a Wi-Fi model with 128GB of storage is available for $309, down from $359 previously and 28 percent off the original $429 price for the equivalent brand new model. Just keep in mind that fifth-generation iPads lack Apple Pencil support.

  • iBooks Author is not being retired: Apple’s app for creating iBooks on Mac will remain in development, according to iMore‘s Serenity Caldwell. In a tweet, she said Pages is not a replacement for iBooks Author, despite the app receiving updates related to creating e-books earlier today.

  • Apple shares environmental report for the new sixth-generation iPad

Spoilers suck. Whether you’re enjoying some books and the TV series gets ahead of itself (Game of Thrones, you’re dead to me), or your friends just can’t resist revealing the twist at the end of a good movie, spoilers seriously ruin your appreciation for something. It’s about the journey as much as the destination, right? So sportsball fans that subscribe to YouTube TV can now configure for scores to be hidden in the YouTube TV interface.

Apple expands self-driving car initiative, now has more testing vehicles than Uber and Tesla

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Apple Car

A few years ago, there were rumors that Apple was interested in developing its own branded car, an idea that made little to no sense for a number of reasons. Since then, word has surfaced that Apple’s interest in the automotive field has undergone a marked shift. Rather than developing a car from scratch, Apple now appears to be singularly focused on developing self-driving car technologies. And in a rare admission for the notoriously secretive company, Tim Cook this past June confirmed that Apple was in fact working on “autonomous systems” for cars, an initiative Cook dubbed the “mother of all AI projects.”

Last we heard, Apple’s self-driving car initiative includes dozens of test vehicles, a good number of which are Lexus SUVs. Indeed, there have even been a few sightings of Apple test vehicles outfitted with an assortment of advanced LIDAR sensors. Without question, self-driving car technology has the potential to completely upend the way we travel, and Apple is seemingly working hard to ensure that a future filled with self-driving cars will not belong exclusively to companies like Tesla and Uber.

That said, a new report from the Financial Times reveals that Apple over the past few months has added upwards of 18 new self-driving test vehicles to its fleet and now has an estimated 45 in total. All told, Apple now has more test vehicles at its disposal than both Uber and even Waymo, Google’s self-driving car division.

Waymo’s fleet reduction in California means it now has fewer vehicles testing in its home state than rivals Tesla, Uber and Apple. Uber has permits to test 29 cars there — though it has now suspended testing everywhere following Sunday’s crash — while Tesla has 39 permits, according to the DMV.

All three are now exceeded by Apple’s testing fleet, which has expanded rapidly in recent months. After first receiving a permit to test just three autonomous vehicles in April last year, that figure jumped to 27 in January.

As for Apple’s end-game with all of this, well, that remains to be seen. It is worth noting, though, that Tim Cook earlier this year said that Apple is already working on products and technologies that won’t see the light of day until the 2020s.

Facebook Lite app expands to the U.S., U.K., Canada, and other countries

Facebook Lite Android app features

Facebook Lite originally launched in 2015 as a lightweight app aimed at users in countries with slower mobile networks. Fast-forward three years and the app is rolling out to more developed countries.

Facebook Lite is launching today in several more countries, including the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K., France, Germany, Ireland, and New Zealand. You can grab the app from the Play Store right here.

As for why the app is now launching in countries like the U.S. and U.K., Facebook said, “We’ve seen that even in some developed markets people can have lower connectivity, so we want to make sure everyone has the option to use this app if they want.”

While Facebook Lite is meant for users with slow connections, it could also be a nice app for folks that just want a slimmed down, speedy Facebook experience. That’s because the app offers many of the same features as the standard Facebook app, like posting status updates and photos, RSVPing to events, commenting on posts, and following people and businesses.

Are you going to try Facebook Lite?
