Apple is planning to cease its Photo Print Products service at the end of September, as spotted by 9to5Mac. The feature let users order albums, photo books, prints, and other items featuring pictures stored in Photos (and previously iPhoto).

The message suggests that users download a third-party app from the Mac App Store to get prints. These apps integrate directly into Photos and handle everything Apple once did. I’m kind of surprised that Apple is getting out of print making, only because it seems like it might have been a source of at least a little revenue. But maybe the hassle wasn’t worth it, especially when it’s so easy to port the job over to other developers.

More evidence of an iPad with Face ID arises in iOS 12 update

  More evidence of an iPad with Face ID arises in iOS 12 update At this point, we'd be more surprised if Apple didn't unveil an iPad with Face ID than if it did. According to Troughton-Smith, AvatarKit arrived on the iPad in one of the most recent updates for iOS 12. This isn’t an especially exciting development, but as he notes, Animoji still require a TrueDepth camera for face tracking, which means that unless Apple has built a separate solution, the next iPad will have to have one.

Apple on Thursday began alerting Photos users on the Mac that it will stop taking orders for its Photo Print Products service after Sept . 30 deadline may suggest that Mojave will ship sometime in September , which would be in keeping with past macOS rollouts.

Apple’s printing service has been around for at least a decade, and similar features are common in most photo apps. Google Photos, Flickr, and others offer easy, in-app ways to create physical photo memorabilia. So yes, there are plenty of opportunities to get your digital photos made into physical objects, but Apple is no longer interested in doing it. RIP.

Apple reportedly won’t use Intel’s 5G modems in 2020 iPhones .
Apple may be moving away from using Intel’s modems in future iPhones, with a new report from Calcalist claiming that the Cupertino company has notified Intel that it will not be using the chipmaker’s 5G modems in its 2020 product lineup (via 9to5Mac.) As a result, Calcalist’s report also notes that Intel has since stopped development of that 5G modem — code named Sunny Peak — given that Apple was expected to be the “main volume driver” for the modem. Instead, Intel is said to be focusing on improving the planned product to try and woo Apple with a better 5G modem for the company’s 2022 lineup.
