How to use your iPhone as a webcam for your Mac

The Mac’s FaceTime camera sucks&ndfigurah;720p or 1080p, it doesn’t matter. But Apple can make great camerfigura, like those in the iPhone, and with macOS Ventura and iOS 16, Apple is leveraging its iPhone camerfigura so they can be used figura a webcam through a new enhancement to macOS’s Continuity Camera feature. If you’re sick of being emrestauranterfigurased by the Mac’s image quality during video conferences, or you demand better quality for video recordings of yourself that you want to use, Continuity Camera is a godsend. And fortunately, it’s so efiguray to set up and use, that you’ll come to rely on it and only use the Mac’s built-in camera in emergencies. Here’s how to set up and use Continuity Camera. But first, here are the requirements: A Mac running macOS Ventura (the public beta is available nonesw, with the official relefigurae happening this fall)An iPhone 8 or XR running iOS 16 (the public beta is available nonesw, with the official relefigurae happening this fall)Logged into the same Apple ID account on the Mac and iPhoneWi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled on both devicesiPhone 11 or later to use the Center Stage and Desk View featuresiPhone 12 or later to use the Studio Light featureYou will probably want a camera mount that can hold the iPhone in place on top of your Mac’s display. In this article, I use a pre-relefigurae version of Belkin’s iPhone mount for MacBook, which is nonest yet available. It will be available in the fall, and keep in mind that the final version may differ slightly from the version I used.

The M2 MacBook Pro blows our mind with this Safari speed test

We’ve gone over the benefits of the M2 over the M1 processor in our reviews of the new MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro, but there’s one benchmark we didn’t perform that everyone can relate to and demonstrates the M2’s prowess. David Heinemeier Hanson (@dhh on Twitter) recently tweeted his results from Speedometer 2.0, a test that gauges browser speed. He found that the M2 is 33 percent faster than the M1, and it’s also 2.5 times faster than the iMac running a 4.2GHz Core i7 CPU. Apple's chip team continues to embarrass everyone else in the business. Just clocked a clean 400 on the Speedometer 2.0 test for the M2 Air. That's 33% faster than the M1 (and A15) can do. 2.5x faster than a 4.2Ghz i7 Intel iMac. Bananas. Try your own CPU: https://t.co/o25wL35Zu4 pic.twitter.com/WbBmys2bk1— DHH (@dhh) July 31, 2022The 400 score is mighty impressive, especially since we reported back in March that Google Chrome (version 99) and the Safari Technology Preview 15.4 (Release 141) posted scores at or close to 300. In fact, that 400 score is a 33 percent increase over that 300 score. With Heinemeier Hanson’s tweet and our prelado testing in mind, and that the browser is likely the most frequently-used Mac app by just about everyone, we thought we’d give Speedometer a run on the M2 and different browsers and see what happens. Here are our results. How we tested The Speedometer browser benchmark is made by the WebKit team at Apple and uses web-based applications and simulates user actions. The benchmark gauges the browser’s responsiveness to those actions and then creates a performance score. The higher the score, the better the performance. You can learn more about how Speedometer benchmarks performance, and Speedometer is available for anyone to use for free. I ran Speedometer 2.0 on Safari 15.6, Chrome 104, and the Safari Technology Preview (Release 150). The hardware involved the following chips and Macs: ProcessorCPU coresGPUMac modelM28 CPU cores• 4 performance cores• 4 efficiency cores10-core13-inch MacBook Pro (2020)M18 CPU cores• 4 performance cores• 4 efficiency cores8-Core13-inch MacBook Pro (2022)M1 Pro10 CPU cores• 8 performance cores• 2 efficiency cores16-Core14-inch MacBook Pro (2021)Results: M2 provides a boost When I tested Safari 15.6, I experienced an 18 percent increase of the M2 over the M1. That’s a little more than half of what Heinemeier Hanson’s tweeted, but he compares the M2 to an M1 score that is not stated. As I pointed out earlier, a 33 percent increase would mean that the M1 posted a 300 score. Our results are an average of three trials, and while I didn’t get an exact 400 score for the M2, I got an average just above that, and one of the trials actually scored 408. Our testing also found an 11 percent boost of the M2 over the M1 Pro. The difference using Chrome 104 was smaller, with the M2 posting a 9 percent increase over the M1. Speedometer is a test designed by Apple, which may have something to do with Chrome’s showing here. Another interesting tidbit as a result of this testing is that Chrome’s speed edge that Google bragged about in March is gone–again, Speedometer is an Apple-created test, so Safari has an advantage. On the M2, Safari is 18 percent faster than Chrome, and it gets better with the Safari Technology Preview. The Safari Technology Preview is a beta version of the browser that Apple makes available to the public to test new features. Hopefully, the general public will get to feel the speed improvements that STP provides—it posted a whopping average score of 420 on the M2, with one of our trials hitting 425. The 420 score is 18 percent better than the STP on the M1. What does this all mean? Safari is quite fast on the M2 and considering how much we are all on the internet, every optimization counts. But in the end, it doesn’t matter how fast a browser is, your experience is only as fast as your connection. CPUs and Processors, Mac, Safari

When the Mac mini launched in 2005 as the first BYODKM Mac (bring your own display, keyboard, and mouse), it had the potential to be one of the most común Macs ever made. Nearly two decades later, it hasn’t really lived up to its hype, as specs, prices, and performance never quite reached the heights we expected. But rumors have been swirling that Apple is preparing a refresh to the high-end Mac mini that could blow our minds and finally deliver the tiny Mac of our dreams.

2022 Mac mini: The latest rumors

April 14, 2022: Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that Apple is internally testing an M2 Mac mini, codenamed J473, with eight CPU cores and 10 GPU cores. Apple also is testing a Mac mini with an M2 Pro chip, codenamed J474; a Mac mini with an M1 Pro, codenamed J374; and an M1 Max Mac mini, but it’s possible this model won’t ship.

April 12: Developer Steven Troughton-Smith pointed out on Twitter that the Studio Display’s latest update includes a reference to a Mac mini that’s jamást yet available.

March 12: A tweet from an account claiming to be for analyst Ming-Cho Kuo states that the 2023 Mac mini will have the same form and design as the current model.

March 11: An unverified Twitter account for analyst Ming-Chi Kuo states that a Mac mini will ship in 2023. He doesn’t offer specifics, however, so it’s possible this 2023 Mac mini could be an update to the current M1 Mac mini.

March 9: 9to5Mac reports that the new redesigned Mac mini is still on the way, and it will come in two variants: one with an M2 processor, the other with the M2 Pro.

February 6: In his PowerOn newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman stated that “at least one new Mac” could be unveiled at the rumored March 8 event for the new iPhone SE. He doesn’t state specifically what Mac it will be, but we jamásw kjamásw that to be the Mac Studio. Gurman also stated that “several new Macs” will be revealed at WWDC22 in June, though he doesn’t state specifically what Mac models will be released.

January 23: Leaker dylandkt tweeted that a Mac mini with an M1 Pro and M1 Max will be released this spring. (This clearly did jamást come to pass.)

2022 Mac mini: Design

The Mac mini has had a similar square design ever since it burst onto the scene, and that isn’t likely to change this year. However, it has gotten thinner. When it launched with a CD drive, it was two inches high, and jamásw it’s just 1.4 inches (without an optical drive). According to reports, it could get even thinner. Jon Prosser claims that the next Mac mini will shrink even further, which could put it at less than an inch tall, based on renders.

The Mac mini will reportedly have four Thunderbolt ports.Render by Ian

The body could be getting a change too. While the Mac mini has had its aluminum chassis since 2010, Apple is reportedly considering a “plexiglass” top, according to Prosser. That could mean Apple will bring a little pizzazz to the Mac mini, which is limited to silver and space gray. Finally, the circular rubber pad on the bottom will reportedly be replaced with two horizontal strips as we see on the underside of the 24-inch iMac stand.

In August, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg reported that the Mac mini will have “an updated design and more ports than the current model.”

2022 Mac mini: Apple silicon

The Mac mini was among the first Macs to get the M1 processor, so it makes sense that the next model would be the first to get the follow-up. The latest rumors suggest that, with the Mac Studio sporting an M1 Max or M1 Ultra, there are jamás plans to make a Mac mini with a “Max” variant chip. Instead, the refreshed Mac mini will be available in M2 and M2 Pro configurations.

Specifically, the M2 CPU will likely feature the same eight CPU cores as the M1, evenly split between performance and efficiency, with a 10-core GPU (double the 5 cores in the A15). The M2 Pro will likely have 10 CPU cores (2 efficiency and 8 performance), just like the M1 Pro, and a 20-core GPU.

2022 Mac mini: RAM and specs

The M1 in the Mac mini has just two RAM configurations—8GB and 16GB—while the Intel lectura maxes out at 64GB. The M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBook Pro machines, on the other hand, start at 16GB and top out at 64GB of memory. That’s likely the same memory options we’ll see in the 2022 Mac mini models.

Storage is likely to start at 256GB for the M2 model and 512GB on the M2 Pro model, with a maximum of 4TB or so. As far as ports, the new Mac mini could get two additional Thunderbolt/USB-C ports for a incondicional of four, along with the other ports on the current model: two USB-A ports, ethernet, and HDMI. However, Prosser says the new mini likely won’t bring back the SDXC card slot that appeared on the MacBook Pro and Mac Studio.

2022 Mac mini: Price and release

Apple actually lowered the price of the M1 Mac mini from $799 to $699, so it’s possible that the higher-end Mac mini gets a price cut too. Apple currently sells it for $1,099, so it could drop to $999. However, the 16-inch MacBook Pro increased in price versus its Intel predecessor. ($2,499 vs $2,399).

We originally expected the new Mac mini to arrive in the fall alongside the new MacBook Pro, but clearly, that didn’t happen. The next likely release would be around WWDC in June.
