Macworld - - Welcome -

Wel­come to the lat­est edi­tion of Mac­world. 2016 was an in­ter­est­ing year for Ap­ple. The firm’s lat­est MacBook Pros came with the fan­tas­tic new Touch Bar and there were up­dates to the Retina MacBook and Air. 2016 also saw the in­tro­duc­tion of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, al­beit con­tro­ver­sially with­out head­phone jacks, and a re­turn to the 4in form fac­tor with the pop­u­lar iPhone SE. Plus there was the re­lease of the Ap­ple Watch Se­ries 2 and a new 9.7in iPad Pro. So what does 2017 have up its sleeves for Ap­ple fans? On page 53, we don our prog­nos­ti­ca­tion hats and in­ves­ti­gate ev­ery ru­mour we could find to bring you our pre­dic­tions for 2017.

When Ap­ple re­moved the head­phone jack off the iPhone 7, it also un­veiled a new set of wire­less ear­buds called AirPods and claimed they were so great users wouldn’t mind the miss­ing head­phone jack. Af­ter nearly three months of wait­ing they are fi­nally here. You can read our thoughts on page 17.

The best cam­era is the one you have with you and if that cam­era hap­pens to be an iPhone 7 Plus, then you are go­ing to be just fine. We pushed its Por­trait mode to the limit and com­pared the re­sults to a DSLR. You can see our re­sults on page 118.

Plus, we’ve our usual reviews, fea­tures and tu­to­ri­als, so you can get more out of your hard­ware.
