Ship Times: Customers hoping to get their hands on the 64GB version of the Apple TV 4K before Christmas are out of luck, reports AppleInsider. Ship times for the 64GB version of the set-to-box are currently sitting at four weeks to five weeks. As a result, customers aren’t likely to start seeing the device show up until early January. This problem appears to be limited to the 64GB version of the device, as the 32GB one still has plenty of stock available.
Mac Patent: AAPL has a new patent for a different way to control a Mac, 9to5Mac notes. The new patent comes from PrimeSense, which was acquired by the tech company back in 2013. The patent describes using a series of gestures to control a Mac computer. This includes using a gesture to turn on gesture mode. The patent appears to reference a camera system similar to the TrueDepth camera for detecting gestures and movement.
