Macs Need T2 Security Chip to Play 4K HDR Netflix in macOS Big Sur
Apple's upcoming macOS Big Sur operating system introduces HDR video support and allows Netflix users to watch content in 4K HDR for the first time. However, it turns out that only Macs with an Apple T2 Security chip are compatible with Ultra HD streaming. Apple Terminal spotted a recently updated support document on Netflix's Help Center that now includes hardware requirements for viewing 4K HDR content in Safari on macOS Big Sur. According to the web page , viewing Ultra HD content can only be achieved on a "select 2018 or later Mac computer with an Apple T2 Security chip." In addition to that, every monitor connected to the computer on which Ultra HD is streamed must be a 60Hz 4K capable display with a HDCP 2.2 connection. It's not clear why Macs need a T2 security chip to play back 4K HDR content, given that Windows machines obviously don't, but it could be that this is Netflix's way of ensuring that viewers aren't trying to stream the high-definition content on older Macs, which could result in less-than-stellar performance.

Apple Officially Obsoletes Last iPod Nano Model
As expected , Apple has added the seventh-generation iPod nano to its list of Vintage and Obsolete products , officially designating the last iPod in the iconic nano lineup as "vintage." The vintage products list features devices that have not been sold for more than five years and less than seven years. After products pass the seven year mark, they are considered obsolete. Apple debuted a refreshed version of the seventh-generation iPod nano in mid-2015, and that was the final iPod nano that came out. Now that the device is five years old, it is being added to the vintage list. Apple launched the first iPod nano in September 2005, and over the course of the nano's lifetime, it got several redesigns. The first iPod nano model was similar in design to a standard iPod but with a slimmer, easier to pocket shape. Fast forward seven years to October 2020 and the seventh-generation iPod nano, which ended up being the final model that was introduced. It had an iPod touch-style multi-touch display and a Home button, but the nano and touch product lines were ultimately so similar that Apple did away with the iPod nano.

Apple Suggests Restoring iPhone and Apple Watch to Fix Excess Battery Drain or Missing GPS Data
Shortly after the release of iOS 14 and watchOS 7 , many users ran into problems with their iPhone and Apple Watch. Multiple online support threads including our own found GPS data was not being properly recorded during activities. The issue appeared to affect all models of Apple Watches. In the majority of cases, users record a workout on their watch while leaving their iPhone at home, but when they later look at the Activity app it only shows the workout's starting point on the GPS map, and nothing else. In addition, some users have been reporting excess battery drain of their Apple Watch, iPhone or both. In the support threads, the unofficial fix seemed to be unpairing and restoring your Apple Watch. Jack Taylor from our forums reported resolving both issues with this method: Both the GPS and severe battery drain issues on watchOS 7 were fixed for me simply by in-pairing and re-pairing my watch. Both issues resolved themselves immediately after as noted in many of the support groups It appears that Apple has adopted this advice as the official solution to this problem.
Startup founders bat for an Indian app store
NEW DELHI: A number of leading technology entrepreneurs are joining hands to petition the government seeking support to create an overarching Indian digital app ecosystem to counter what they view as the dominance of US technology giants Google and Apple. At a meeting on Tuesday, the group discussed ways to establish a large-scale platform that will host local apps and break the duopoly of Google's Play Store and Apple's App Store, as well as a national-level lobby group to represent their interests, people privy to discussions told ET.The founders, including Paytm's Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Yashish Dahiya of Policybazaar and Murugavel Janakiraman of Matrimony.com, also plan to approach the country's banking regulator as well as the finance ministry seeking redressal for Google's recent move to increase commission on purchases made on its app store.'App Neutrality'Sources said such a move by Google would sound the death knell for the Indian startup ecosystem. "If India has net neutrality, why can't we have app neutrality," said Janakiraman, who added that over 80% of those accessing the internet in India do so through digital applications and "it can't be completely controlled by Google since they own the Play Store.""A body monitored by the government can ensure app neutrality, fairness and openness," he added.Vishwas Patel, founder of payment gateway CCAvenue, said, "The government has to certainly step in and take the lead on this.""If there is some kind of restriction imposed due to geopolitical tensions, an Indian app store can save the day for everyone," said Patel who is also the chairman of the Payments Council of India, a payments-centred industry body.A government official said they have not received any request from the industry so far. "But we will take up the matter if they approach us," the person said.
