The photos show the building fins; a tree being positioned; Cook in one of the completed pods; an early sketch of a pod; light fixtures that can direct light up, down or both; an empty pod; concave and convex buttons beneath a desk to adjust the height; and door handles with no visible fixings.

More new photos of the Tesla Model 3 – RED!

More new photos of the Tesla Model 3 – RED!

After years of anticipation, Tesla’s mass market EV will finally start being delivered to early reservation holders in just a few short months. Despite a history of missing launch windows, Tesla during its last earnings report affirmed that Model 3 production remains on track for July with deliveries scheduled to begin before the end of the year. With the Model 3 form factor practically decided upon at this point, Tesla has been testing the Model 3 out on the open road with increasing frequency over the past few weeks.

The latest Model 3 sighting reveals a brand new color for Tesla’s mass market EV, with a red model joining the ranks of white, blue and black Model 3’s already spotted out in public. The red Model 3 pictured below was taken by an Instagram user with the handle gobi.man who uploaded the photo yesterday evening.

If all goes according to plan, Elon Musk last February said that the final Model 3 reveal will likely go down in July. So while the overall form factor of the Model 3 is, again, already nailed down, Tesla’s next and final Model 3 event will give us a better idea of what we can expect the vehicle’s steering wheel and other aspects of the interior to look like.

Ahead of production, Tesla noted the following in its most recent shareholder letter:

Model 3 vehicle development is nearly complete as we approach the start of production. Release Candidate vehicles, built using production-intent tooling and processes, are being tested to assess fit and finish, to support vehicle software development and to ensure a smooth and predictable homologation process. Road testing is also underway to refine driving dynamics and ensure vehicle durability.
Assuming no unforeseen hiccups, Tesla added that it’s aiming to have Model 3 production at about 5,000 vehicles per week before the end of the year. Subsequently, Tesla is planning to increase Model 3 production to 10,000 vehicles sometime in 2018. All told, Tesla remains committed to manufacturing 500,000 vehicles throughout 2018, an ambitious goal to say the least.

And on the off-chance that you missed any of the other Model 3 sightings which have come to light over the past few weeks, below are a few to help get you up to speed.

Apple adds new ‘How to shoot on iPhone 7’ website & video series

Apple adds new ‘How to shoot on iPhone 7’ website & video series

Apple has long showcased the capabilities of the iPhone 7 camera, but now the company is working to help everyone take great looking images with the device. Today, Apple debuted a new series of videos, as well as a new website, focused on educating users on how to take the best images with their iPhone…

On the new website, Apple shares tips for shooting a plethora of different types of images and video. For instance, Apple gives tips for close-up shots, vertical panoramas, action shots, street light, stills while filming video, selfies, and much more. There are also tips and tricks for editing photos such as selfies.

Each of the tips has an accompanying video that walks users through the process. For instance, for shooting a vertical panorama, Apple walks users through the steps of using the panorama function in the Camera app, but moving the device vertically instead of horizontally like with typical panoramas. For more complex tricks, Apple offers a step-by-step walkthrough.

All of the videos are simple and easy to follow, generally coming in the form of screen captured footage, so users know exactly what buttons to press and what steps to follow on their own device.

Apple has uploaded some of the videos to its YouTube channel, but the full series can be found here on the new How to shoot on iPhone 7 website.

Apple Sends Out Press Invites for WWDC Keynote on June 5

Apple Sends Out Press Invites for WWDC Keynote on June 5

Apple today sent press invites to a variety of news and media sites for its upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, confirming plans to hold a keynote event on June 5 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. Apple traditionally holds a keynote event on the first day of the Worldwide Developers Conference, where new software is introduced. We expect to see new versions of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS at the conference, and there’s a chance we could also see new hardware like updated iMacs and Apple’s rumored Siri speaker.

As was announced in February, the Worldwide Developers Conference will take place from June 5 to June 9 in San Jose, California, a departure from past events that have long been held in San Francisco at the Moscone Center.

Tickets, which were priced at $1,599, were distributed by random selection at the end of March, and free tickets provided to scholarship winners were also handed out in April.

Apple expects to host about 5,000 developers, with hundreds of Apple engineers available to answer questions and host app development sessions. Developers who cannot attend will be able to watch the sessions through the WWDC 2017 website, and the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

For the June 5 keynote event, MacRumors will provide a live blog both here on MacRumors.com and on our MacRumorsLive Twitter account, along with detailed coverage of everything Apple announces during the week.

Tesla: Charging Is Our Priority

Tesla:  Charging Is Our Priority

From Tesla Website

As Tesla prepares for our first mass-market vehicle and continues to increase our Model S and Model X fleet, we’re making charging an even greater priority. It is extremely important to us and our mission that charging is convenient, abundant, and reliable for all owners, current and future. In 2017, we’ll be doubling the Tesla charging network, expanding existing sites so drivers never wait to charge, and broadening our charging locations within city centers.

As always, the most convenient way to charge is to plug in overnight where you park. However, to better serve the needs of owners who are traveling or those who don’t have access to reliable home charging, we will continue to aggressively expand our public charging networks. Since we first energized the Supercharger network in 2012, Tesla has built over 5,400 Superchargers with the goal of enabling convenient long distance travel for more than 200,000 Tesla owners around the world. In parallel, we’ve built a network of more than 9,000 Destination Charging connectors that replicate the convenience of home charging by providing hotels, resorts, and restaurants with Tesla Wall Connectors. But we know that to truly advance electric vehicle adoption, we must continue investing in charging infrastructure.

We started 2017 with over 5,000 Superchargers globally and by the end of this year, Tesla will double that number to total more than 10,000 Superchargers and 15,000 Destination Charging connectors around the world. In North America, we’ll increase the number of Superchargers by 150 percent, and in California alone we’ll add more than 1,000 Superchargers. We’re moving full speed on site selection and many sites will soon enter construction to open in advance of the summer travel season.
