Apple Watch Tips and Hidden Features: Handoff,...

The Apple Watch is a brand new product platform for Apple, offering a significantly different experience compared to Apple's already established platforms, iOS and Mac OS. As the device is getting onto more and more wrists over the coming days, weeks and month, we've collected a bunch of helpful tips to help users acclimating to Apple's brand new platform in a video. We've highlighted some of the tips below.

Fast switching between apps - If you need to bounce between two apps, or one app and your watch face, it can become fairly cumbersome and take some time. Instead, it's easier and quicker to simply fast switch between apps by double tapping the Digital Crown. Double tapping a second time goes back to the last thing you were doing. This way, you can spend some time on the watch face, quickly zoom over to the Music app to select a new song, and then double tap again to go back to the watch face...

Apple Plans to be Part of Coming Big Media Changes

Apple CEO Tim Cook made it clear he wants his company to play a role in the rapidly changing market for entertainment content. He said as much during the company's second quarter earnings conference call on Monday, and called out HBO Now as an example of giving customers what they want.

The Mac Observer Spin: Now that Apple TV has a place in our living rooms, Tim Cook wants to make sure that's our go-to choice for TV shows and movies. He says major changes are coming to the market, and that has to have Comcast, Time Warner, and Dish taking notice. The customer loss will be slow, but it'll come unless they figure out how to change with the market instead of resisting what's coming.

During Apple’s Q2 financial call today, the company mentioned that big-box retailer Best Buy would be supporting Apple Pay in stores later this year, and Best Buy will allow customers to make purchases within the company app using Apple Pay starting today. The news is notable because of Best Buy’s alliance with MCX, or the Merchant Customer Exchange, a retailer’s association that wants to start its own mobile payments platform called CurrentC.

MCX and CurrentC made headlines in November, just after Apple Pay launched, when many MCX members—including Best Buy, 7-11, and CVS—...

Tim Cook: Component Cost Breakdowns on Apple...

During today's Q2 2015 earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook noted that Apple Watch margins are lower than the company average, and on a followup question about those margins in the context of the Apple Watch Edition's high price, Cook commented on the inaccuracy of estimated cost breakdowns on Apple products.

"I haven't seen [them for Apple Watch], but generally there are cost breakdowns around our products that are much different than the reality. I've never seen one that is anywhere close to being accurate," Cook said. He went on to say that the Apple Watch's functionality is "absolutely incredible" with a lot of new features and innovative technology.

We haven't seen cost breakdowns on the components of the Apple Watch hinting at a possible base unit price that would reveal Apple's profit margin, but such component breakdowns are often shared by analysts following device teardowns...

Apple CEO Tim Cook: We're 'Working Hard...

During today's earnings call covering the second fiscal quarter of 2015, Apple CEO Tim Cook did not share information on Apple Watch sales, but there were several analyst questions on the new wearable, leading Cook to shed a bit of light on Apple's efforts to fulfill orders.

According to Cook, demand for the Apple Watch is much greater than supply, but the company is "working hard to remedy that." He said that Apple made a lot of progress on that over the past week, and was able to deliver the Apple Watch to more customers than Apple had originally anticipated.

"We're going to keep doing that," Cook said, noting that some customers would begin receiving updated info on improved shipping estimates today. Apple is "generally happy" with its efforts to boost supply and get the Apple Watch out to customers as soon as possible, and Apple Watch availability may expand to other countries in late June. "It is a new product for us. With any new product, you wind up taking...

Watch App Store -- First impressions of Third-Party...

The Apple Watch arrived last Friday, and the device has not left my wrist since I pulled it out of the box. I’ve used it continuously, so much that I’ve drained the battery dry each day. Besides checking out all the features of the Watch, I also spent a good deal of time browsing the Watch App Store. Read on to find out what I think about the Watch App Store and which apps landed on my device first.

Watch App Store First Impressions

My first impressions of the App Store are mixed. There are a lot of apps at launch and I enjyed browsing through them, but only a handful really interest me. This isn’t a negative reflection on the app developer community, but rather the nature of this new device and my expectations for it.

First and foremost, my experience with the Watch App Store is jaded by my expectations for the Watch. When browsing through the app store, I looked at apps with the perspective of "what can this Watch app do for me" and not "ooh, my favorite...

Apple’s Q2 2015: iPhone 6 is still star of the show...

Apple's earnings report for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 has arrived, and while the numbers are different the story is pretty much the same as last quarter. iPhone sales are way up, and they account for over two-thirds of Apple's revenue. Macs continue to grow at a respectable rate, while iPads take another sharp year-over-year tumble.

Apple broke quarterly records with $13.6 billion in profit and $58 billion in revenue, compared to $10.2 billion in profit and $45.6 billion in revenue in Q2 of 2014. It maintained a gross margin of 40.8 percent. These results easily beat Apple's guidance for the quarter, which predicted revenue between $52 billion and $55 billion and profit margins between 38.5 and 39.5 percent...

Apple: "Record Second Quarter Results"

Photo by RomarioIen/iStock / Getty Images

Apple announced the results of its fiscal 2015 second quarter ended March 28, 2015 and as expected, the company once again reported record results.

The company had quarter revenue of $58 billion with a quarterly net profit of $13.6 billion ($2.33 per diluted share). Those results compare to last year's second quarter favorably -- one year ago, those numbers were $45.6 billion with a net profit of $10.2 billion, or $1.66 per diluted share.

So what was the fuel in this rocket? Record second quarter sales of iPhone and Mac, aided by record performance of the App Store. Over 61 million iPhones were sold (compared to over 43 million in the year-ago quarter), 12.6 million iPads, and 4.6 million Macs. Those Mac unit numbers are up 10% year over year.

Apple expects its fiscal 2015 third quarter figures to be as follows: revenue between $46 and $48 billion, gross margin between 38.5 and 39.5 percent, operating expenses...

DisplayMate found that the sapphire display reflects about twice as much ambient light as glass—8.2-percent reflectance compared to the Watch Sport’s 4.6 percent—which leads to a washed-out look with reduced contrast and color saturation when looking at the Watch under bright light.

DisplayMate: Apple Watch has ‘excellent’ display,...

Screen technology analysis firm DisplayMate, best known for comparing the display performance of phones, tablets, and laptops, today published an extensive report on the screen inside the 42mm Apple Watch. Describing the screen as “excellent,” DisplayMate’s Dr. Raymond Soneira also explained the relative benefits of the Ion-X glass found in the $349+ Apple Watch Sport versus the Sapphire Crystal used in the higher end Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition models, notably praising the lower end model’s glass as superior across a number of tested categories.

“Apple has done a great job with the OLED display on the Apple Watch,” Soneira says, noting that it’s Apple’s first OLED screen. “It provides very nice, pleasing and accurate colors and picture quality,”...

Instagram puts three filters and emoji hashtags at...

Tired of your go-to Instagram filters? Meet Lark, Reyes, and Juno, Instagram’s newest additions to your creative toolbox.

The new filters are inspired by outdoor adventures, the company said Monday. Lark is designed for landscapes shots, emphasizing blues and greens while desaturating reds. Juno punches up warm tones and whites, perfect for people shots, while Reyes adds a “dusty, vintage look” to your outdoor images.

After the popular photo-sharing network added five filters last December, the ensuing excitement from the Instagram community was so great that the company plans to regular roll out new filters. Two of those five additions, Ludwig and Crema, have become Instagram’s most-used filters. (I can already tell Reyes is going to be a personal favorite.)

Three days with the Apple Watch: What we think of...

Today the editors of Apple World Today -- or should we call it Apple Watch Today? -- are sharing their thoughts after three days of living with Apple's most personal device ever. If you also have a Watch and wish to share your thoughts or have any questions about the experience of using one, please let us know in the comments.

Steve Sande

Lucky me, living in the Western U.S. I somehow got my Apple Watch before the rest of the crew and was able to do both an unboxing video and show how the pairing process looks from the standpoint of the iPhone

As fate would have it, the arrival of the Apple Watch coincided with a very busy and stressful time in my life; my 86-year-old father ended up in the hospital with neuropathy due to worsening diabetes. Between making sure his stay in the hospital is a short one before going into rehabilitation near me...

With Apple set to reveal its fiscal Q2 earnings after market close today, analysts are expecting double-digit year-over-year growth in all categories except iPads. Fortune‘s roundup says that analysts predict revenue of $56.84B, up a massive 24.5% year-over-year, and above the top end of Apple’s $52-55M guidance. Earnings per share is predicted to be $2.21, up a third on the previous year, with gross margin just shy of Apple’s top-end guidance at 39.4%.

Double-digit growth is expected in both iPhones and Macs. For iPhones, the prediction includes sales just under 56M, 32.6% higher than the same quarter last year, while Mac sales are forecasted to...

Apple Watch battery details posted, specs now...

If you were curious about the Apple Watch’s battery life, Apple just posted the specs.

The company posted a technical specification web page, complete with details as to service and recycling for the wearable’s batteries. The page states that the Watch should hold 80 percent of its original capacity at 1,000 “complete” charge cycles — meaning charging from empty to full. Typically, batteries last longer if they’re only partially depleted before being recharged.

That performance is identical to iPads and MacBooks, though those devices have much greater starting capacities. By comparison, an iPhone is designed to retain 80 percent capacity at about 500 charge cycles,...

Microsoft is holding its Build event this week, marking the beginning of its major push to launch Windows 10. Build is in San Francisco this year, which effectively puts it right in the back yard of both Apple and Google -- a nice "in your face" move. I was the featured launch analyst for Windows 95 two decades ago and there, even though the post launch was hardly flawless, Microsoft ripped Apple a new rear orifice, wounding the company so badly that one of the founders eventually had to return to save it.

And Apple knows it.

An internal Apple document states that users can expect some discoloration for Apple’s fluoroelastomer Sport and selection of leather bands over time with normal wear and tear. Apple notes that discoloration of leather bands is “due to sweat or lotions” and an “expected behavior”. Apple’s...

Many customers who pre-ordered the Apple Watch over the past two weeks and received an extended shipping estimate of 4-6 weeks or later should receive the wrist-worn device earlier than expected. Apple continues to update several pre-orders with improved delivery estimates, with some Apple Watch orders initially slated for June delivery now shipping as early as this week.

A growing number of users within the MacRumors discussion forums with Apple Watch pre-orders facing June delivery are beginning to receive more specific shipping dates between mid May and early June. Some customers, for example, have delivery estimates of May 14-May 20 or May 28-June 10, and the white 38mm Apple Watch Sport in particular is set to deliver on April 28 for multiple customers.

It's that time again: Apple reports its financial results for the second quarter of its fiscal 2015 today at 5pm Eastern. As usual, you can join us live for coverage of the call, a breakdown of what the results mean for Apple's various product lines, and plenty of charts mapping out the data.

Remember, this quarter runs from the beginning of January to the end of March, so this will be Apple's last quarter without the Apple Watch. Going forward, watch sales will be lumped into the "other products" category with the iPod, Beats headphones, Apple TVs, AirPorts, and other peripherals, so we won't necessarily get specific details on Apple Watch Sales. Cook and company may mention something about Apple Watch sales on the call today, but we wouldn't be surprised if he declined to mention an exact number.

As for the rest of Apple's products, don't expect many surprises. We got three new MacBooks—...

Where’s Siri’s voice? and other odd things about the...

Apple has packed a ton of features into the Apple Watch, successfully producing the best smartwatch on the market. The device isn’t perfect, though, and has it own set of quirks. Here are a few hard-scratchers that I’ve found in my first few days of using the device.

Silent Siri

One of the most useful yet disconcerting features of the Apple Watch is Siri. Siri on the Watch is powerful, almost as powerful as her iPhone counterpart, but she lacks one major feature — a voice. The first few times I used Siri I thought my Watch was broken because Siri was silent. She wasn’t talking to me! As I found out later, Siri not readily available on the Watch. Yes, you get the same snarky and informative responses via text, but it is just not the same without her sweet voice.

If you really want her voice back, you can use VoiceOver to enable Siri. VoiceOver helps you navigate...

With the launch of the Apple Watch on Friday, the first wave of consumers have received their Apple Watches. Our forums are abuzz with activity surrounding Apple's newest device. While there were initial concerns about the Apple Watch's battery life, reports seem to indicate that the Apple Watch, itself, has no problem lasting a full day.

However, there have been mixed reports about the impact the Apple Watch has on iPhone battery life. The Apple Watch needs to be paired to an iPhone for full functionality. The iPhone connects to the Apple Watch via bluetooth and Wi-Fi to feed it data and notifications throughout the day.

Best Apple analyst posts AAPL Q1-Q2 estimates: Macs...

KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the few analysts we feel credible, has his Apple numbers ready for Q1 2015. The analyst projects iPhone, iPad, and Mac shipments to be 58.2 million, 10.1 million, and 4.5 million respectively. He also estimates that Apple Watch shipments are currently at 631,000 units.

Kuo believes that iPhone shipments have peaked and that Apple will see a quarter over quarter decline of 21.8 percent in Q1 and an 11.6 percent quarter over quarter decline in Q2 for shipments of 51.4 million, which would still represent a record quarter for the company. The morale of the story here is that Apple is still selling a lot of phones and there’s no need to worry yet.

iPhone shipments have peaked. We estimate iPhone shipments to decline 21.8% QoQ to 58.2mn units in 1Q15, milder than the seasonal pattern. While...

Alongside the company's new frontiers, like the car and the home, Cook told Jim Cramer last month that health "may be the biggest one of all." As Fast Company reports, Cook says Apple's devices could could help pinpoint diseases within decades—and position the company at the center of a "significantly underestimated" mobile-health industry.

Users discover stainless steel Apple Watch scratches...

Now that the stainless steel Apple Watch is becoming widely available, owners are beginning to post photos showing their shiny steel Watches have already developed scratches on the casing. Since Apple’s videos touted its steel as specially cold-forged to achieve superior hardness, people have been surprised to discover that the finish is easily scratched – many comparing it to the back of an iPod. While this isn’t shocking for 316L stainless steel, it is concerning to customers who just spent $549 or more on the mid-range Apple Watch. But don’t panic! As I’ll explain below, you can easily fix the scratches yourself for around $5…

First off, let’s get one thing straight: the fact that the steel Apple Watch can scratch is not a surprise or “...

The Sapphire Apple Watch however wouldn’t scratch under any circumstances, though it doesn’t appear that Consumer Reports had a diamond pick to test it against. Regardless, for intents and purposes, you likely will...

According to internal Apple documents obtained by MacRumors, Apple is planning to allow Apple Watch customers to exchange just the band, instead of having to return the entire watch. However, there are a few restrictions: you must swap bands inside the 14-day return window, the new band must be from the same collection as the watch, and the watch must have been purchased directly from Apple. Also, the swap won’t be handled entirely in store — Apple Store employees will verify your eligibility, then initiate the swap online, and a new band will be shipped to you.

Review: ChargeTech’s ChargeAll Portable Power Outlet...

The first time I found an AC wall outlet under my seat on an airplane, I realized that I could use my MacBook Pro with its wall charger for hours, even if I’d partially discharged the battery before boarding. Later, when I rode a bus with an AC outlet onboard, the freedom to enjoy my laptop for hours made the long trip feel brief. But I’ve had far more trips without AC outlets than with them, and there have been plenty of times when my MacBook could really have used a recharge mid-trip.

That’s why I’m genuinely excited about ChargeTech’s ChargeAll Portable Power Outlet ($150-$200), which primarily exists to give you access to an AC outlet literally anywhere you might be — something that I can’t believe has taken so long to become available. There are two versions, one with...

The idea is that passersby would think it was an Edition, and all that comes along with that, I guess.

To be honest, the spray paint better matches the “Aluminum Gold” iPhones, iPads and now MacBooks but I have to imagine the button/crown and some of the sensors will take a hit.

Vivaldi 1.0.118.19 - Lightweight browser. (Free)

Vivaldi browser.

In 1994, two programmers started working on a web browser. Our idea was to make a really fast browser, capable of running on limited hardware, keeping in mind that users are individuals with their own requirements and wishes. Opera was born. Our little piece of software gained traction, our group grew and a community was created. We stayed close to our users and to our roots. We kept improving our software, based on our users feedback, as well as our own ideas on how to make a great browser. We innovated and we strove for excellence.

Fast forward to 2015, the browser we once loved has changed its direction. Sadly, it is no longer serving its community of users and contributors who helped build the browser in the first place.

So We Came to a Natural Conclusion:

We must make a new browser. A browser for ourselves and a browser for our friends. A browser that is fast, but also a browser that is rich in functionality,...

The Hubble telescope’s most iconic image, explained

Vox:

In April 1995, the Hubble Space Telescope — which was launched into orbit exactly 25 years ago — took its most iconic image: the Pillars of Creation. These gigantic towers of dust and gas, 7,000 light years away, are named because the immense force of gravity causes them to condense into clumps of matter that will become new star systems.

In fact, billions of years ago our own solar system may have been born through the same process — so when you look at this upgraded 2014 version of the image, you’re also looking back at the very distant history of Earth.

We’ve all seen this image a hundred times but the details in this story are really fascinating.

Apple Watch Launches

An anonymous reader writes: The Apple Watch's release date has arrived: retailers around the world have quietly begun putting them on their shelves, and customers are beginning to receive their shipments. Reviews have been out for a while, including thoughtful ones from John Gruber and Nilay Patel. Apple has published a full user guide for the software, and iFixit has put up a full teardown to take a look at the hardware. They give it a repairability score of 5 out of 10, saying that the screen and battery are easily replaced, but not much else is. Though Apple designated the watch "water-resistant" rather than "waterproof", early tests show it's able to withstand a shower and a swim in the pool without failing. Ars has an article about the difficulty of making games for the Apple Watch, and Wired has a piece detailing its creation.

New Games Does not Commute (free) — We were pretty impressed with Mediocre’s efforts last year on their Smash Hit game (no pun intended), so naturally we were intrigued by their latest new title. While a big departure from last year’s game, Does not Commute is fun and interesting in its own right, and its clear that Mediocre has put some nice depth and creativity into it.
