Apple Plans on Combining iPhone, iPad, Mac Apps by 2021

Categories:Other Brands

Apple Inc. wants to make it easier for software coders to create tools, games and other applications for its main devices in one fell swoop -- an overhaul designed to encourage app development and, ultimately, boost revenue.

The aim of the multistep initiative, code-named “Marzipan,” is that by 2021, developers will be able to build an app once and have it work on the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers, people familiar with the effort said. That should spur the creation of new software, increasing the utility of the company’s gadgets.

Each new app is another revenue opportunity for Apple because it takes a cut of many app-related purchases and subscriptions. The company has positioned its services division as a major growth area. It plans to announce two new services -- a premium Apple News subscription offering and an original video content initiative -- at the end of March, Bloomberg News reported recently.


Later this year, Apple plans to let developers port their iPad apps to Mac computers via a new software development kit that the company will release as early as June at its annual developer conference. Developers will still need to submit separate versions of the app to Apple’s iOS and Mac App Stores, but the new kit will mean they don’t have to write the underlying software code twice, said the people familiar with the plan.

In 2020, Apple plans to expand the kit so iPhone applications can be converted into Mac apps in the same way. Apple engineers have found this challenging because iPhone screens are so much smaller than Mac computer displays.

By 2021, developers will be able to merge iPhone, iPad, and Mac applications into one app or what is known as a “single binary.” This means developers won’t have to submit their work to different Apple App Stores, allowing iOS apps to be downloaded directly from Mac computers -- effectively combining the stores.

The plans are fluid and could be altered, the people said. They asked not to be identified discussing private matters. A spokeswoman for Cupertino, California-based Apple declined to comment.

The most direct benefit of the Marzipan project will be to make life easier for the millions of developers who write software for Apple’s devices. For example, later this year Netflix Inc. would be able to more easily offer a Mac app for watching video by converting its iPad app. By 2021, Twitter Inc., which has mostly abandoned the Mac, could publish a single app for all Apple customers.

Apple previewed the apps plan, without disclosing the road map, at its developers conference last year. Bloomberg News first wrote about the initiative in 2017.

The work coincides with the company’s preparations to merge more of the underpinnings of its hardware. Currently, iPhones and iPads are powered by Apple processors, while Macs use Intel Corp. chips. Apple plans to start transitioning some Macs to its own chips as early as 2020, Bloomberg News reported last year.

Despite the app merger plan, Apple has said it won’t combine iOS and macOS into a single operating system.

Apple isn’t the first company to streamline its app ecosystems. Before Microsoft Corp. discontinued Windows for phones, it pushed a technology called Universal Windows Platform that let developers create single applications that would run on all of its devices. Similarly, Google has brought its Android mobile app store to some laptops running its Chrome OS operating system.

Apple plans to hold its annual software conference from June 3 to June 7 in San Jose, California, according to permit filings reported recently by website MacRumors.

At the event, Apple also plans to debut new software features for its devices, including a dark mode for easier nighttime viewing and new productivity tools for the iPad. The company has also internally weighed previewing a new version of the high-end Mac Pro, according to people familiar with the deliberations.

CHANEL REISSUE 2.55 CAMERA BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Reissue-2.55-Camera-Bag

The trend of the Camera Bag in high fashion just started a few years ago. The first Chanel Reissue 2.55 Camera Bag was released in the Spring Summer 2016 Collection Act 1. But it was not what we had expected as it was crafted in denim canvas.

But the real Chanel Reissue 2.55 Camera Bag came in the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. This Camera Bag was designed with aged calfskin, which resembles to the classic Reissue 2.55 style. It was truly love at first sight.

The Design

Chanel-Reissue-2.55-Camera-Bag-10

The latest Reissue 2.55 Camera Bag is created with the essentials components like the Mademoiselle Lock, the jewel-like Bijoux Chain and the signature Aged Calfskin.

These three elements are the vital pieces that make the Reissue 2.55 Bag great. Each element carries a little story of the founder Coco Chanel. The Mademoiselle Lock refers to Coco Chanel for never marrying, the double chain was inspired by her youth and the Quilting represents the cushions in her apartment in Paris.

The Aged Calfskin makes the bag looks like its been worn, which enhances the classic feel. The Reissue 2.55 Camera Bag can also be seen as an alternative to the Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag, because the interior is much more spacious and can carry a lot of stuff. It also features a bigger front pocket, where it can store essentials with instant-access.

The Big and the Small Camera Bag

At Bragmybag, we want to inform you about handbags as much as we can. If you’re going after the Reissue 2.55 Camera Bag, know that we’ve discovered two different styles.

The small style and the big style are different.

Chanel-Reissue-2.55-Camera-Bag-12

We love the big size. Why? Because the chain goes through the large CC eyelets. It’s the same design like the Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag. The small size is slightly different, look!

Chanel-Reissue-2.55-Camera-Bag

You see? No eyelets. The Bijoux chain is attached to the sides.

Now which size do you want?

The Interior

The inside features one large main compartment including a zip pocket. Just like as we’ve mentioned before, the Camera Case’s biggest advantage comparing to the Flap Bag is the bigger compartment.

CHANEL NUDE REISSUE 2.55 BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Nude-Reissue-2.55-Bag

The Reissue 2.55 Bag is the true classic of the house, because it was created by the founder Gabrielle Chanel in the 1920’s. Since then, the 2.55 Bag slowly disappeared from fashion as it was replaced by endless of updated versions. However, the original edition was brought back to life thanks to Karl Lagerfeld in February 2005. Karl studied Gabrielle Chanel’s work and created the exact copy. The release date of the reissue version of February 2005 also happens to be the 50th anniversary of the creation of the original version.

The Reissue 2.55 Bag and the Classic Flap Bag are like siblings, they go hand in hand. So when smooth leather version of the Classic Flap Bag was released, the Reissue 2.55 Bag needed to follow as well.

The smooth leather version (without the quilting) of the Classic Flap Bag is called ‘Chanel Pure Classic Flap Bag’. The smooth leather version of the Reissue 2.55 Bag is called ‘Chanel Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag’.

There are a few more general details we need to share. The Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag is a not new bag; the first version was released in the Pre-Fall 2016 Collection. Since then, the style was temporary discontinued until the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. And it’s not a coincidence that it was reintroduced for the Pre-Fall season. And who knows, this bag might get discontinued again and re-released two years later for the Pre-Fall 2020 Collection.

The Reissue 2.55 Nude Bag comes in two versions. One is the basic edition; the second one is slightly more luxurious. We will make a comparison later on.

The Design

Chanel-Nude-Reissue-2.55-Bag-15

The Smooth Nude Leather

So what makes the ‘Nude’ version different than the ‘Quilted’ version? Well first of all, it’s the leather. The classic edition of Reissue 2.55 Bag in diamond quilted is built from aged calfskin. The nude edition of the Reissue 2.55 Bag is made from smooth calfskin.

In the Chanel Leather Guide, we talk more about the ‘aged calfskin’ leather.

The leather is very important because it changes the experience of the bag. The diamond quilting feels busier, sophisticated and more classic, it can also attract more attention. The smooth leather version is more humble, quiet, relaxing and less busy. Choose the one that fits to your personality and taste.

Besides these two important adjustments, the Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag hasn’t changed in shape and measurement. The critical components like the Mademoiselle Lock, jewel-like double chain as well as the back pocket remained in tact.

The Special Edition Of The Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag

Chanel-Nude-Reissue-2.55-Bag-7

The special edition of the Nude 2.55 Bag – check the side with chain and multicolor

There is a unique version of the Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag. This style is embellished with multicolor sides in blue and red, designed with different material. The side is also refined with a thinner version of a necklace-like chain for decoration purpose. This chain is smaller than the shoulder chain strap.

As a side note; this special edition has been reintroduced for the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. And to contribute to the Paris-Hamburg theme, it’s embellished with two beautiful charms. One is an anchor and it represents Hamburg’s famous port.

The Interior

Chanel-Nude-Reissue-2.55-Bag-9

The interior is the same as the original version of the Reissue 2.55 Bag. There is a front pocket behind the flap and a main compartment.

4 EFFECTIVE TIPS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A SMARTPHONE

Categories:Fashion


Photo: PexelsPhoto: Pexels

Are you in search for a new smartphone to buy? It might be difficult to find the ideal one for you, but there are various ways to help you out on this. Just make sure you know what you really want and you have a budget for it.

Apparently, almost everyone these days owns a smartphone. It is now an important part of an individual’s life. There are tons of things you can do with it aside from communicating with other people, such as saving documents, browsing the Internet, listening to music, and taking photos. Definitely, it has a great purpose to make people’s lives better.


A wide range of mobile devices are available in the market nowadays, making it tougher to decide which one to purchase. However, things will be easier for you if you take into consideration these useful tips when buying a smartphone:

DISPLAY AND SIZE

Make it a point to check the display and size of the smartphone you are eyeing before buying it. In fact, the ideal resolution of display and size for normal smartphone users range from 5-inch to 6-inch HD or full-HD. Anything that is larger than a 6-inch display is no longer handy. If your main purpose of buying a smartphone is just for communication and some social media related stuff, then this display and size will do. You need to choose one that is convenient to carry around anytime.

BATTERY

Depending on the way you use your device, battery usage differs from one user to another. In case you are a heavy user and you do a lot of things on your smartphone, like playing games, working on applications, and streaming videos, then purchase one with at least 3500mAh battery. Average users can pick one with 3000mAh battery. It still depends on your end on how you manage your own handset.

STORAGE

Another important thing to consider when planning to buy a smartphone is the storage. In the event you want to store numerous applications on your handset, then go for one that has a bigger storage. Usually, you can buy smartphones that come with 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB. But if you opt for an Android or Windows smartphone, you can expand your storage by inserting a microSD.

PROCESSOR

Determine first if you are a heavy or light user. Heavy users who need to edit images, documents, and videos online or use applications in split screen mode should look for a Snapdragon 820/821 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor. Multitasking will be extremely effective if you have this kind of processor on your mobile phone. On the other hand, MediaTek processor will be fine for light users.

Keep in mind these smart tips specified above when you buy a new smartphone. You will surely get the best device you deserve once you have examined all your needs and preferences. If you opt for an Apple device, you can check out iPhones at Harvey Norman. Simply learn to budget your money properly to obtain the perfect smartphone for you.
