    by Apple Newsroom on July 16, 2019 at 8:58 pm

    Apple offers a look at new emoji coming to iPhone this fall<br/>To celebrate World Emoji Day, Apple is previewing a selection of new emoji coming this fall, revealing the newest designs that bring even more diversity to the keyboard, alongside fun and exciting additions to popular categories of food, animals, activities and smiley faces. <br/>In a major update to the Holding Hands emoji typically used to represent couples and relationships, users will now be able to select any combination of skin tone, in addition to gender, to personalize the people holding hands, opening up more than 75 possible combinations. <br/>Following Apple’s proposal to the Unicode Consortium last year to introduce more disability-themed emoji, a new guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid, wheelchairs, a prosthetic arm and a prosthetic leg will be available in the emoji keyboard. Celebrating diversity in all its many forms is integral to Apple’s values and these new options help fill a significant gap in the emoji keyboard. <br/>Many additional emoji categories are getting exciting updates with a new smiley face for yawning, a one-piece swimsuit, new food items including a waffle, falafel, butter and garlic, and new animals like the sloth, flamingo, orangutan and skunk. <br/>Fifty-nine new emoji designs will be available this fall with a free software update for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch. Thousands of emoji are currently available, including emotive smiley faces, gender-neutral characters, more professions, various clothing options, food types, animals, mythical creatures and more. New emoji are created based on the approved characters in Unicode 12.0. <br/>Press Contacts<br/>Jacqueline Roy,Apple,jacqueline_roy@apple.com ,(408) 862-4386<br/>Nadine Haija,Apple,nhaija@apple.com,(408) 862-6490<br/>Apple Media Helpline,media.help@apple.com,(408) 974-2042<br/&gt […]

  • Apple Music brings Up Next Live to global cities this summer
    by Apple Newsroom on July 1, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    Apple Music brings Up Next Live to global cities this summer<br/>Lineup Features Bad Bunny, Daniel Caesar, Khalid, Ashley McBryde, King Princess, Lewis Capaldi and Jessie Reyez<br/>Apple today announced Up Next Live, a series of intimate performances from past and present Apple Music Up Next artists including Bad Bunny, Daniel Caesar, Khalid, Ashley McBryde, King Princess, Lewis Capaldi and Jessie Reyez. Each artist will perform for fans in one city, for one night only. <br/>Apple Music Up Next is a monthly program showcasing the best new artists in the world. Each month, Apple Music tastemakers and editors identify one artist to feature, then utilize the power of the platform to raise awareness of that artist to Apple Music's growing audience of music fans. Apple Music Up Next also includes a <a href="https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/up-next/pl.5cb9c0f3ca9d4fc1bccbaf67ca6201e7/" target="_blank">deeply curated companion playlist</a> full of incredible new artists across genres from all over the world. <br/>Each artist on the diverse Up Next Live roster has been featured as an Apple Music Up Next artist in the monthly program or through the playlist. All shows will be hosted after hours in local Apple stores in Milan, San Francisco, Brooklyn, Paris, London, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Apple stores frequently offer free creative sessions through Today at Apple and serve as the place where the local creative community can come together and share ideas, making them the perfect backdrop for Up Next Live. Performances kick off July 9 with global sensation Bad Bunny at Apple Piazza Liberty in Milan. <br/>“The impact [of being part of Up Next] can be seen in everything, in numbers, in plays, in shows,” said Bad Bunny. “There are a lot of fans that, when I go out in the street in the US, people who do not speak Spanish, I think they will not know me and they stop me, they ask me for pictures and they sing my songs. It helped me very much to make myself known in a market different from mine, not only the USA, but in places where Spanish is not spoken or where perhaps Latin music does not dominate, exposing my music and giving people the opportunity to get to know what I do.” <br/><strong>Up Next Live schedule:</strong> <br/>July 9 — Bad Bunny at Apple Piazza Liberty, Milan<br /> July 19 — Jessie Reyez at Apple Union Square, San Francisco<br /> July 25 — King Princess at Apple Williamsburg, Brooklyn<br /> July 31 — Lewis Capaldi at Apple Champs-Élysées, Paris<br /> August 9 — Daniel Caesar at Apple Covent Garden, London<br /> August 16 — Ashley McBryde at Apple Michigan Avenue, Chicago<br /> August 23 — Khalid at Apple Carnegie Library, Washington, D.C.<br /> <br/>For more information, please visit <a href="http://apple.co/amupnextlive" target="_blank">apple.co/amupnextlive</a>. <br/>Press Contacts<br/>Brian Bumbery,Apple,bumbery@apple.com,(424) 326-4156<br/>Jessica Bass,Apple,jessica_bass@apple.com,(310) 895-6508<br/>Apple Media Helpline,media.help@apple.com,(408) 974-2042<br/&gt […]

  • Logic Pro X update taps the tremendous power of the new Mac Pro
    by Apple Newsroom on June 13, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    Logic Pro X update taps the tremendous power of the new Mac Pro<br/>Today Apple released a new version of Logic Pro X, its professional music production software, with performance updates for all users and optimizations that take advantage of the groundbreaking power of <a href="https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2019/06/apple-unveils-powerful-all-new-mac-pro-and-groundbreaking-pro-display-xdr/" target="_blank">the all-new Mac Pro</a>. Making full use of the Mac Pro hardware, Logic Pro&nbsp;X&nbsp;10.4.5 will now support up to 56 processing threads, allowing pro music producers and film composers to work through incredibly demanding music projects with unprecedented ease. <br/>Mac Pro together with Logic Pro X 10.4.5 allows pro musicians to do things never before possible in the production process. With the new Mac Pro, Logic can now run up to five times the number of real-time plug-ins compared to the previous generation Mac Pro. Logic Pro X 10.4.5 increases the available track and channel count for all users, now supporting up to 1,000 audio tracks and 1,000 software instrument tracks, providing four times the number of available tracks for the most complex productions. Additionally, Logic Pro X now supports 1,000 auxiliary channel strips, 1,000 external MIDI tracks and 12 sends per channel strip. Users can also expect improved responsiveness of the Mixer and Event List when working with large sessions, and projects with numerous Flex Time edits and tempo changes perform more efficiently than ever. <br/>Pro musicians are already expressing their excitement for the Mac Pro with Logic Pro X, saying: <br/>“Logic is my primary creative tool for composing music, playing a key role in creating the scores for ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ and ‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.’ When you’re working, time is incredibly valuable and you never want to lose the flow of new musical ideas. I’m really excited to see the increased performance of Logic Pro X 10.4.5 along with the power, expandability and configurability of the new Mac Pro — together they will help me work even faster and let me focus more on being creative.” — Daniel Pemberton, composer for “Black Mirror,” “Yesterday” and “Ocean’s 8” <br/>“Sometimes, a producer will subconsciously avoid exploring certain creative ideas because they think their hardware and software might hold them back. Logic Pro X 10.4.5 and the new Mac Pro are going to lift those limitations. In addition to the dramatically increased track count, there are a lot of little things in the new version of Logic that really add up. It’s great seeing Apple’s commitment to delivering these high performance tools for pros.” — Stuart Price, producer and mixer for The Killers, Madonna, Coldplay and Seal <br/>“Music producers use technology to help us produce our art, and we've been waiting a long time for&nbsp;a system without limitations or bottlenecks. I’m deeply impressed by the remarkable performance of&nbsp;the new Mac Pro and Logic Pro X. This is a genuine turning point, as&nbsp;the creative possibilities now&nbsp;seem endless.” — Rich Costey, producer and mixer for Muse, Foster the People, Snow Patrol and Chvrches <br/>“As someone who uses Logic for everything I create musically, I got a huge kick seeing all the performance tweaks coming in Logic Pro X 10.4.5. And the expandability of the new Mac Pro will give it longevity and a home in my studio for a long time to come. It’s clear that Apple is committed to the pro community, and I love that they are really listening and paying attention to our needs.” — Oak Felder, producer for Demi Lovato, Drake, Alicia Keys and Rihanna <br/>Additional new features in Logic Pro X 10.4.5, include: <br/><ul> <li>The loop browser can filter by loop type and allows drag and drop of multiple loops into your project simultaneously.</li> </ul> <br/><ul> <li>The redesigned DeEsser 2 plug-in provides more options to reduce sibilance on audio tracks.</li> </ul> <br/><ul> <li>MIDI beat clocks can be sent to individual ports, each with unique settings like timing offset and plug-in delay compensation.</li> </ul> <br/><strong>Availability</strong> <br/>Logic Pro X 10.4.5 is available today as a free update for all existing users, and is available on the Mac App Store for <strong>$199.99</strong> (US) for new customers.
