M1X And Macs: Apple Tipped To Launch M1X Chip-Powered Macs This Year
WASHINGTON — U.S. tech giant Apple is expected to launch two MacBook Pro models and one Mac mini within the fourth quarter of this year, with all three machines fueled by the iPhone maker’s much-talked-about M1X chipset. Media reports suggest that both the M1X MacBook Pro models, which can likely include a 14-inch and a 16-inch version, alongside a Mac mini, will be launched in late October or early November. From what’s known, both the M1X MacBook Pro models are expected to feature mini-LED screens a bit like the M1 iPad Pro. Even then, Apple isn’t expected to start production of the new portable Macs until late 2021. Apple has a market cap of $2.20 trillion as of June and is the world’s most valuable company by market cap.thewestsidegazette.com
How to use your iPhone as a webcam on a Mac so your video chats are much clearer
The webcam on your Mac is not nearly as good as the camera on your iPhone. The video might be blurry and colors are sometimes washed out.

Apple's new way to unlock your iPhone with an Apple Watch works even when you cover most of your face
Apple will soon let you unlock your iPhone as long as you're wearing an Apple Watch. The feature will launch sometime this spring when Apple rolls out iOS 14.5 for iPhones and the corresponding Apple Watch update. It requires that you have an Apple Watch on your wrist, unlocked, and with its own passcode. You may be familiar with the process if you have a Mac and an Apple Watch -- you can already unlock a Mac just by coming near it wearing your Apple Watch, for example. Your iPhone will scan part of your face and your Apple Watch will give a little buzz indicating that it was used to unlock your iPhone.cnbc.com
Soon you'll be able to unlock your iPhone with a mask on — if you're wearing an Apple Watch
Apple is testing new iPhone software that will let you unlock your iPhone with an Apple Watch while wearing a mask. The feature launched in beta on Monday in new test software for the Apple Watch and iPhone, and should be available this spring. Currently, Apple users either need to enter a passcode or slide their mask down to unlock iPhones with FaceID. Now, if you're wearing an Apple Watch, Face ID will work the same as it does when you don't have a mask on. That's similar to how the feature works on a Mac, which you can already unlock automatically if you wear your Apple Watch nearby.cnbc.com

Buffalo yet to be informed by MAC it has clinched East title
BUFFALO, N.Y. – The undefeated Buffalo Bulls’ bid to clinch the Mid-American Conference East Division title were placed on hold on Friday before they even had a chance to play a down. The cancelation left Buffalo (4-0) in limbo, waiting for the conference to determine whether the school has won the division title and a berth in the MAC championship game in Detroit on Dec. 18. Buffalo would’ve clinched the berth with a win over Ohio (2-1). With only one game left in the regular season, the Bulls have run out of division rivals who can mathematically beat them in the standings. Leipold then had the five-bus caravan turn back toward Buffalo, before breaking the news at the next rest stop.

Carvalho said there was a delay in the reporting of the Bay Harbor Islands case and the links it had to students. Parents received notice the Bay Harbor Islands employee interacted with students at Ruth K. Broad/Bay Harbor K-8 Center. The Florida Department of Health recorded the case of the Bay Harbor Islands employee as a Broward County case because of where she lives. It’s unclear if the children were in contact with the COVID-19 patient before or after the diagnosis.
