MacBook: Apple upgrades its thinnest, lightest laptop

Along with the MacBook Pro, Apple revealed at its Worldwide Developers Conference an upgrade for the MacBook.

The MacBook is Apple's ultraportable laptop, trading portability for speed and connectivity. It has a slower processor than the Mac Pro, and it has one USB-C port. For frequent travelers, it could be the ideal laptop.

One thing that hasn't changed about the MacBook is the color choices. Apple offers four finishes: Gold, Rose Gold, Space Gray, and Silver.

iOS 11 Users to Gain More Control Over Apps'...

Users of iOS 11 will be able to restrict the gathering of location data by any third-party app so that it can only access the device's location status when the app is in use.

Previously the security setting only applied to certain apps that chose to offer it – as well as to developers wanting to test their own app's use of location data – but it appears Apple is extending the setting for any installed app in iOS 11, potentially handing an additional element of privacy back to the end user.

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

Developer Access to iPhone's NFC Chip Coming in...

Developers coding for iOS 11 will be able to create apps that can read NFC tags, opening the door for the wireless exchange of information between an iPhone and various connected devices in a user's environment.

The NFC chip in the iPhone is currently only used to handle contactless Apple Pay transactions and Passbook check-ins, but a new framework detailed in a developer resource published shortly after Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote on Monday lays the foundation for multiple use cases by third-party apps.

Called "Core NFC", the framework will allow apps to read Near Field Communication tags that are compatible with the NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF), which is supported by iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus handsets. The developer support document overview describes the possibilities afforded by the new framework like so:

Apple to Phase Out 32-Bit Mac Apps Starting in...

Apple is already putting an end to 32-bit apps on iOS devices with iOS 11, and soon the company will make the same changes on its macOS operating system.

During its Platform State of the Union keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple told developers that macOS High Sierra will be the "last macOS release to support 32-bit apps without compromises."

Starting in January of 2018, all new apps submitted to the Mac App Store must be 64-bit, and all apps and app updates submitted must be 64-bit by June 2018. With the next version of macOS after High Sierra, Apple will begin "aggressively" warning users about 32-bit apps before eventually phasing them out all together.

In iOS 11, 32-bit apps cannot be installed or launched. Attempting to open a non-supported 32-bit app gives a message notifying...

Apple 'Error 53' Sting Operation Caught...

AmiMoJo writes: "Australia's consumer watchdog carried out a sting operation against Apple which it says caught staff repeatedly misleading iPhone customers about their legal rights to a free repair or replacement after a so-called 'error 53' malfunction, court documents reveal," reports The Guardian. Error 53 refers to an error message that renders iPhones useless if third-party repairs are made. From the report: "The case, set to go to trial in mid-December, accuses Apple of wrongly telling customers they were not entitled to free replacements or repair if they had taken their devices to an unauthorized third-party repairer. That advice was allegedly given even where the repair -- a screen replacement, for example -- was not related to the fault. Apple has so far chosen to remain silent about the case brought by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). But court documents obtained by Guardian Australia show the company has denied the ACCC's allegations, saying...

Apple Adds Support For FLAC Lossless Audio In iOS 11

Reddit users who have installed copies of the developer beta of iOS 11 are reporting that Apple has finally added support for lossless FLAC audio files in their new mobile operating system. The Next Web reports: The functionality was first spotted on an iPhone 6S Plus running iOS 11 Beta 1 and is reportedly available as part of the newly announced file-management app, Files. Up until now, Apple had deliberately opted to ignore offering playback support for FLAC files in both iTunes and iOS -- though there are numerous third-party apps to do the trick. But it appears things are finally about to change.

iOS 11: A first look at Developer Beta 1 (video)

This morning, I downloaded and installed iOS 11 Developer Beta 1 on my test iPad, which is an iPad mini 2. The download and installation were quite fast; Apple made it easy for developers to do the install as an "Over The Air" update by making it necessary to download and approve a profile, then rebooting the device. Once that was done, the installation was just like any Apple other operating system update - fast!

The Apple Beta Software Program website says “iOS 11, macOS High Sierra, and tvOS 11 public betas are coming soon” and Apple promised public betas of iOS and macOS later this month.

If you're not already signed up for the public beta program, you can do so here. The program is free, but remember: beta software is unfinished software so use with care.

This should come in handy.

Apple has just doubled the storage from its top-tier iCloud storage plan from 1 TB to 2 TB. The plan remains available at $9.99 per month, although the old 1 TB plan is now longer available.

The company has also announced that multiple users will be able to share a single iCloud storage plan with Family Sharing in iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra.

Unfortunately, the capacity for the free iCloud storage plan has not jumped from 5 GB. The 50 GB plan for $0.99/month and the 200 GB plan for $2.99/mo are also unchanged.

You can upgrade to the 2 TB plan today from within iCloud settings.

Apple has stated that, once iOS 11 and macOS 10.13 High Sierra debut later this year, users will be able to share 200 GB and 2 TB iCloud plans via Family Sharing. All user accounts attached to the family can save to the same iCloud storage capacity, but you only have to pay one monthly subscription.

Finding a solution to pet anxiety with the help of...

More than 32 million dogs in the U.S. suffer from anxiety, including Charger, ZenCrate co-founder Jon Azevedo’s dog. Initially hoping to create something that would help Charger, Azevedo and co-founder Chris Lightcap developed a product that could help millions of dogs. Office 365 played an important role in scaling their business as it grew.

From pet project to production product

On a road trip during a typical Florida storm, Azevedo noticed that Charger was calm in the back seat of his car, and wanted to mimic that environment in a crate for home. “My focus in the beginning of this was Charger,” said Azevedo. “A year later, after a local veterinarian educated me on how large of a problem anxiety in animals is, I decided to focus on a product for other pet owners.”

Office 365 keeps ZenCrate current, connected and...

Here’s hoping the iMac Pro learns from the Mac Pro’s...

Andrew Cunningham

No one was allowed to touch the single iMac Pro that Apple had in its hands-on area following the WWDC keynote today. Big and dark and imposing, the computer is the first step toward making good on Apple's promises to recommit to its desktop users. It's not a new Mac Pro (a computer that's still coming, I've been assured), but it is a more concrete commitment to high-end desktops than the (nice, but straightforward) standard iMac refresh we got Tuesday.

Apple has made some cool tweaks to the iMac to earn it that "pro" moniker, specs aside. The cooling system and the vents have been entirely redesigned. A regular iMac has a single fan plus one vent in back, above the power cord and below where the stand meets the body of the computer. The Pro has two fans inside plus what appears to be a pair of long horizontal vents across the bottom, visible in the photos above...

Apple AirPlay 2 adds multi-room audio capabilities

Apple announced AirPlay 2 as part of iOS 11 announcements at WWDC 2017. It adds multi-room audio capabilities to AirPlay’s existing abilities. AirPlay 2 also enables the use of Siri to initiate and control playback to compatible speakers and devices (such as Apple TV).

AirPlay 2 is Apple’s followup to the original AirPlay Wi-Fi-based music playback standard. While Sonos popularized Wi-Fi-based multi-room audio playback, Bluetooth became ubiquitous, and multi-platform Wi-Fi audio standards spread in popularity, Apple lacked a competing story until today’s announcement.

AirPlay 2 shares some competitive similarities to the competing Chromecast Built-in (aka Google Cast) standard, but based on current announcements it lacks video capabilities and partners with mainstream volume. According to the IHS Markit research group, the latter aspect indirectly infers that there is a third competitive weakness compared to...

Following an unveiling at WWDC yesterday, Apple let members of the press get a close-up look at its new Siri-enabled speaker, HomePod, but due to the loudness of the area it was impossible for WWDC attendees to really determine HomePod's sound quality. Now, a few websites have gotten the chance to hear how HomePod sounds in a normal environment, and shared their opinions of the device online.

According to Mashable, Apple played listeners five songs across four genres and the device had "very good audio." The HomePod starts up by playing 360-degree audio to itself so it can learn the space it's in, and then adjusts any subsequent music that's played with the knowledge of the size of the room.

Apple’s patent filing for thermal haptic devices...

In 2015 Apple filed a patent for an “Apple Ring.” And it’s back — kinda — in a new patent filing (number 9,672,702) for “thermal haptic alert notification.”

The 2015 patent filing was for a “ring computing device” that a user could use to control an external electronic device with a finger-ring-mounted touchscreen that includes a computer processor, wireless transceiver, and rechargeable power source. The ring would have a variety of the features of the Apple Watch.

The new patent filing not only mentions a ring, but also the iPhone and Apple Watch. It’s for computing devices that can incorporate thermal haptic feedback (THF) devices for providing feedback in the form of a temperature change. The thermal haptic feedback device can also change temperature based on information received from external computing devices.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that computing devices often provide a variety of indications to a user through devices such as display devices...

Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a Bloomberg interview that he could not reveal details, but said Apple had provided prompt assistance to the UK authorities.

But in cases when we have information and they have gone through the lawful process we don’t just give it but we do it very promptly.

Bloomberg says that it’s s “likely” that Apple provided data from iCloud backups of devices associated with the terrorists. Although data is encrypted for backup on iCloud, Apple doesn’t (yet) use end-to-end encryption, meaning that the company holds the key and can decrypt data when presented with a court order.

Why no Magic Keyboard with Touch Bar for the new...

Overall, I was thrilled with the announcements at yesterday’s keynote that kicked off the 2017 Worldwide Developer Conference. New iMacs? Yay. (And did you notice how CEO Tim Cook said that the Mac was “in many ways the heart and soul of Apple.”

However, I was surprised that there wasn't a standalone Magic Keyboard with Touch Bar announced for the Mac. Apple touted the feature so much when the Touch Bar debuted with the 2016 MacBook Pros that I was certain the tech would quickly move to Mac desktops.

Some folks may see this as a sign that some backlash convinced Apple the Touch Bar was a bad move. I don't think that’s the case; I think we'll see a Magic Keyboard with Touch Bar by this fall, perhaps sooner.

Speaking of keyboards, yesterday Apple did quietly release a...

Apple's upcoming iMac Pro — due in December -- will sport an AMD Radio Pro Vega card. If it's the Frontier Edition, the all-in-one will be, as best I can tell, home to the fastest graphic card around. The Radeon Pro Vega is over three times faster than any previous iMac GPU, packing the power of a double-wide graphics card into a single chip. 

The new “non-pro” iMacs sport Radeon Pro 500 Series graphics, which deliver up to 5.5 TFLOPS of performance. It seems logical that the iMac Pro will pack the Pro Vega card, which boasts a High Bandwidth Cache Controller, the cornerstone of the advanced GPU memory architecture. Combined with HBM2, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition helps expands the capacity of traditional GPU memory to 256TB, allowing users to tackle massive datasets quickly. The result is a graphics card that can easily handle...

Adrian Leow, research director at Gartner, said that enterprises are responding slowly to increasing demand for mobile apps.

How to connect a USB printer in macOS Sierra

The default printer is the one selected when the Print dialog opens. If there’s “No printer selected” in the Print dialog, you’ll need to add a new printer.

For most USB printers, all you have to do is update your software and then connect the printer to your Mac. If necessary, macOS automatically detects the printer and downloads any necessary software. For other printers, you may have to complete a few steps to add the printer. Here's how:

  • Update your software: Choose Apple menu > App Store, click Updates, then install any software updates listed. Even if no updates appear, this ensures that macOS has the latest information about printer software it can download from Apple. If you don’t do this, you may see a message that software isn’t available when you connect your printer.
  • Prepare your printer: Use the instructions that came with your printer to unpack the printer, install ink or toner, and add paper. Turn on the printer and make sure it’s not...

As Apple warned users with iOS 10.3, iOS 11 officially drops support for 32-bit applications. Any 32-bit app will refuse to launch and instead show an alert pressuring the developer to release a 64-bit update. Older iPhones and iPads with 32-bit CPUs cannot update to iOS 11 at all.

32-Bit Apps No Longer Supported in iOS 11

Ahead of the launch of iOS 11, there were several signs suggesting 32-bit apps would no longer be supported in the new operating system, which has been confirmed with the release of the first iOS 11 beta.

When attempting to open a 32-bit app when running iOS 11, the app refuses to launch, offering up a message that says the app needs to be updated to work with iOS 11.

32-bit apps are also not available when searching in the new version of the App Store, and previously downloaded 32-bit apps can't be installed through the Purchased tab.

Over the course of the last several months, warnings about 32-bit apps have gotten increasingly dire. With the launch of iOS 10.1 in October of 2016, Apple started warning customers that older apps "may slow down your iPhone."

In January of 2017, the first iOS 10.3 beta featured an...

Apple Drops 2TB iCloud Storage Price to $9.99,...

Following today's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote that saw the debut of new software and hardware products, Apple has updated and simplified its iCloud storage pricing tiers.

The 1TB storage option has been eliminated, while the 2TB storage option has dropped in price to $9.99 per month, which is what 1TB of storage was previously priced at. Essentially, at the highest data tiers, customers are getting more storage space for less money. Pricing for Apple's 50GB and 200GB iCloud storage plans remains unchanged.

The new pricing tiers in the United States:

- 50GB: $0.99

- 200GB: $2.99

- 2TB: $9.99

While U.S. prices are listed above, the same changes have been made in all countries where iCloud storage is available. 1TB storage options have been eliminated across the board, while 2TBs of storage is now available at the lower 1TB cost.

Many users have been hoping Apple...

AppleCare+ terms quietly updated, now include...

AppleCare+ just got a bit more lenient.

Following Apple’s quiet expansion of AppleCare+’s warranty period from two to three years a while back, as well as covering accidental damage to the company’s desktop and MacBook product families, Apple has brought the AppleCare+ package in line with services provided for its mobile devices.

The new coverage allows for repairs for up to two accidents, with each subject to a service fee of $99 for damage to the screen or the external enclosure, plus tax, while other types of damage will cost $299 per incident.

The revised AppleCare+ plan for desktop Macs provides on-site repair, with a technician visiting the user’s work site for support, while MacBook users are able to mail in their computer for servicing using a prepaid shipping box provided by Apple. There is also the option of taking the affected Mac or MacBook to an Apple Store or other Apple Authorized Service provider for repairs.

RAM in the new 27-inch iMac isn’t upgradeable

Well, that's a bummer. Just got off a chat with Apple Support and discovered that the newly announced iMac isn’t user upgradable.

Previously, this was the case with the 21.5-inch models. However, the bigger all-in-ones have always had user upgradeable RAM.
If you’re ordering a new iMac, it only comes with 8GB of RAM. Upgrading the memory will cost you an extra $200 for 16GB, $600 for 32GB, and $1,400 (!) for 64GB.

At WWDC 2017 today, Apple unveiled a brand new iPad Pro with a 10.5-inch display and 40% narrower bezels. The new iPad features a 50% brighter True Tone display and "ProMotion" technology which increase refresh rates up to 120hz. 9to5Mac reports: The new iPad Pro includes dynamic refresh rate adjustments, screens move from 24hz to 48hz to 120hz. This maximizes battery life and performance, when you need it. The A10x Fusion chip improves CPU and GPU by at least 40%. Cameras have also been upgraded with the same sensor as the iPhone 7 on the back and the front. Apple demoed a photo app called "Affinity Photo," to demonstrate the 120hz refresh rates. Apple says new iPad Pro performance compares favorably with a desktop computer. This includes incredibly fast selections and fluid Apple Pencil interactions. Both iPad models start with 64GB of memory and maxes out to 500GB at the high-end. There are also several new software features for iPad, coming this fall with iOS 11: A new...

TA17-156A: Reducing the Risk of SNMP Abuse

Original release date: June 05, 2017
Systems Affected

SNMP enabled devices

Overview

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) may be abused to gain unauthorized access to network devices. SNMP provides a standardized framework for a common language that is used for monitoring and managing devices in a network.

This Alert provides information on SNMP best practices, along with prevention and mitigation recommendations.

Description

SNMP depends on secure strings (or “community strings”) that grant access to portions of devices’ management planes. Abuse of SNMP could allow an unauthorized third party to gain access to a network device. 

SNMPv3 should be the only version of SNMP employed because SNMPv3 has the ability to authenticate and encrypt payloads. When either SNMPv1 or SNMPv2 are employed, an adversary could sniff network traffic to determine the community string. This compromise could enable a man-in-the-middle...

Andrew Cunningham

I have seen the new iPad Pros, and they are about what you'd expect, not that that's a bad thing. Since the "hands on" process is basically the same as handling any other iPad, let's focus on answering questions.

The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the easiest to describe, since its physical design is the same as the original model. It's still a 0.27-inch (6.9mm) thick, 1.49 pound (677g) tablet that looks like a stretched-out version of the iPad design Apple has been selling since 2013 or so. The difference is that some of the features introduced in last year's 9.7-inch iPad Pro weren't ready for the first 12.9-inch version. That list of features includes:

That wasn't the end of the event, though. Apple also shared details on two upcoming products, the pro-oriented $4,999 "iMac Pro" and the $349 "HomePod," the company's much-rumored Siri-powered speaker that's designed to compete with products like the Amazon Echo while also offering up amazing sound quality.

I have to admit it was a bit of stretch for this year but evidence was beginning to mount that it might just happen. Today Apple showed off their AR project and it was mind boggling in scope. Apple's SVP of Software said that Apple would have the largest AR platform in the world when it lands on their iDevices.

Apple offered the following list of forthcoming changes:

iPad Becomes Even More Powerful:

iOS 11 makes multitasking on iPad even more powerful with a new customizable Dock that provides quick access to frequently used apps and documents from any screen, and a redesigned app switcher makes it easier to move between pairs of active apps, used in Split View and now Slide Over. The new Files app keeps everything in one place, whether files are stored locally, in iCloud Drive® or across other providers like Box, Dropbox and more, and with Drag and Drop available across the system, moving images and text is easier than ever....

Apple's racked up 27 million Apple Music subscribers, Craig Federighi, senior vice president of software engineering, said during the WWDC keynote. That's about 7 million more since December. 

AppleCare+ for Mac now extends the service and telephone technical support periods to three years, up from one year and 90 days respectively. This includes access to Apple experts via chat or phone, and global repair coverage for the device.

Logitech has already introduced a keyboard/case combo for the new iPad Pros. It's the Slim Combo.

Here's How Apple's New HomePod Speaker and...

Following the WWDC 2017 keynote today in San Jose, Apple invited members of the media for some hands on time with HomePod, its new Siri-enabled smart speaker and hub for controlling HomeKit accessories.

CNET has shared a gallery of HomePod pictures that provides a close-up look at the speaker, which looks somewhat like a smaller Mac Pro covered in a seamless mesh fabric. It'll be available in White and Space Gray.

The top of the HomePod has a glossy finish with Siri colors glowing in the center. Since it's designed for home use, the HomePod doesn't have a battery, so it must be plugged into a wall outlet or other...

Hello, HomePod: What you need to know about Apple’s...

Apple concluded its Worldwide Developers Conference keynote on Monday with a sneak peek of an all-new product: The HomePod.

Originally rumored to be called Siri Speaker, the HomePod is a smart speaker with Wi-Fi capabilities intended to compete against Amazon Echo devices and Google Home—although it will be significantly more expensive. During the WWDC keynote, Apple’s senior VP of marketing Phil Schiller boasted about the HomePod’s audio quality, its built-in room sensors, and the integration with Apple Music. 

With its always-on voice assistant and ability to control connected devices, the HomePod is very similar to Echo devices and Google Home, but with a few notable differences. Here are the must-know HomePod features and specs that were showcased during WWDC.

Apple says iMac Pro RAM won’t be user replaceable,...

In addition to refreshed MacBooks, Apple today also updated its iMac lineup with Kaby Lake processors and USB-C. Perhaps most notably, however, the company teased the iMac Pro: an ultra-powerful model coming later this year.

The iMac Pro comes in Space Gray coloring with accompanying Space Gray accessories, and while some had hoped those accessories would be sold separately, Apple has since informed us that won’t be the case…

Amazon Prime coming to Apple’s TV app later this year

The tvOS got very little love at the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference keynote today, though CEO Tim Cook said there would be more info later this year. He also added that Apple now has 50 partners in the TV app and that Amazon Prime is coming later this year. 

This would allow Amazon Prime Video subscribers to easily watch TV shows and movies from the service using Apple's set-top box. Amazon employees expect the app to show up on Apple’s hardware in the third quarter of the year, according to recode.

If the rumor is true, this would be an about-face for Amazon. In June 2016, CEO Jeff Bezos said he only wants Amazon to sell devices that support Prime Video. Amazon Prime is a membership program that gives customers access to streaming video, music, e-books, free shipping and a variety of other...

New submitter StreamingEagle writes: Apple massively improves the quality of photo and video experiences, including High Dynamic Range. High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) can double photo and video storage capacity, and cut the time to upload or share by half. HEVC video compression and HEIF photo compression are coming to iOS 11 and MacOS High Sierra. Sean Hollister adds via CNET: "Having used HEVC quite a bit myself, I can vouch that it takes up less space. I recently transcoded roughly a terabyte of video to HEVC on my Windows PC, and saw hundreds of gigabytes of savings."

Due to ship in December for $349, the HomePod promises to provide high-quality audio and virtual assistant capabilities via Siri. We’ll just have to wait until then to see how it compares with the Amazon Echo and Google Home devices.

Apple announces HomePod speaker at WWDC, will ship...

Apple’s much-rumored speaker is en route.

Apple today announced its speaker, the HomePod a wireless speaker powered by Apple’s A8 chip with Siri integration that’s just under 7 inches tall.

Phil Schiller, the company’s VP of Worldwide Marketing, offered the following comment:

“HomePod packs powerful speaker technology, Siri intelligence and wireless access to the entire Apple Music library into a beautiful speaker that is less than 7 inches tall, can rock most any room with distortion free music and be a helpful assistant around your home.”

The HomePod combines high quality music playback speakers and smart speaker systems with an interesting feature that can, reportedly, intelligently detect the space it is in with “spatial awareness,” which the company said provides better quality audio playback than its competitors.

The HomePod features an upward-facing woofer as well as an array of seven beam-forming tweeters. It has a six-microphone array...

HomePod raises the bar for smart speakers

One of the other expected announcements today was that of a "Siri Speaker". It happened, but with a totally different name than we expected -- HomePod (available in December in the US, Australia, and UK for $349). The crowd didn't exactly seem enthralled with the name, but the device is quite impressive and as Apple noted, it's meant to redefine music in the home the same way that the iPod redefined portable music.

Apple mentioned that today there are good speakers -- let's say Sonos, for example -- that work throughout the home, but they're not smart. Likewise, there are smart speakers like Amazon Echo, but they have substandard sound. HomePod is designed to bridge the gap by bringing premium speaker sound to the home as well as using Siri to browse and select music from Apple Music, control the home through HomeKit, and answer questions.

The device is just under 7 inches tall and looks like a piece of furniture. It will be available in both space gray and white, and...
