A report on the JNUC keynote

By Ruby Edwards

The JAMF Nation User Conference (JNUC), the largest gathering of Apple IT professionals in the world, opened today in Minneapolis, MN. With support from 21 sponsors, the learning event includes 64 JAMF customers who are presenters and, for the first time, JNUC is including “how to” sessions and interactive labs for hands-on experience with JAMF products.

The keynote address opened the eighth annual conference with a parody of Adele’s “Hello” to announce the release of JAMF Pro Version 10 and to apologize for the delay in the release. Version 10 of JAMF Pro will be generally available October 31. Plans are for smaller releases at a faster pace in 2018 and work has begun on the next release with beta testing to begin soon.

JAMF strives to release their products to coincide with the release of Apple’s products, but, as JAMF CEO Dean Hager explained, JAMF chooses quality over early release. Another priority is “Apple functionality...

AWT News Update: October 24, 2017

Today you'll learn where 1 + 2 + 3 = 24, where the iPhone 8 Plus is the best-selling smartphone, and where you can get the software to turn many common or home-built PCs into Macs:

  • An unfixed iOS 11 calculator bug means that for at least now, 1 + 2 + 3 equals 24...unless you are a slow calculator user
  • Taiwanese consumers are snapping up the iPhone 8 Plus, and Apple's the top-selling smartphone manufacturer
  • Want to build a Hackintosh? You can now run macOS High Sierra on it thanks to the latest version of the popular utility UniBeast

iOS 11 Bug: Typing 1+2+3 Quickly in the Calculator...

A bug in the built-in Calculator app in iOS 11 is getting some major attention this week, despite the fact that it's been around since iOS 11 was in beta testing.

At issue is a calculator animation that causes some symbols to be ignored when calculations are entered in rapid succession. You can try it for yourself: Type 1+2+3 and then the equals sign into the Calculator app quickly.

Due to animation lag introduced when adding two or more numbers together, your result is more likely to be 24 than 6.

The same goes for many other calculations -- the Calculator ignores some inputs unless you're entering numbers slowly enough to account for the light-up button animations that highlight the keys that are...

This article was updated on October 24 with information on the availability from Apple.

iPhone X: It’s real, it’s here, and it’s very expensive. After months of rumor and speculation, followed by the biggest pre-launch leak ever, Apple finally revealed the iPhone X during the company’s annual fall press event in September.

This is a radical departure from the form factor of every other iPhone out there, including the brand-new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. It comes with a jet-black edge-to-edge OLED screen topped by a TrueDetect camera system that enables a brand-new Face ID unlocking system and Animoji features.

Let’s hope that Twelve South’s “Inspire” Mac candle...

Mmmm, smells good! Photo © 2017, Steven Sande

When it comes to design of Apple accessories, I personally think the team at Charleston, SC - based Twelve South sometimes does a better job of thinking things through than Apple’s own design team. Recently, I received a Twelve South Inspire “Mac Candle No.2” for review, which is a US$29.99 scented candle that’s the followup to last year’s model with the “New Mac Smell”. Let’s take a look at this fun gift, and I’ll tell you why I think Jony Ive should look at the candle for inspiration…

As a scented candle, Inspire is pretty impressive. I frankly hate going into places like Yankee Candle because the candles are overwhelmingly powerful, almost sickening. I found the Inspire to be just about the right level of scent, and the bergamot, lemon and tarragon scents were subtle enough to not give our house the overpowering...

A report from the JAMF media lunch

At the JAMF National User Conference (JNUC) today the media was treated to a lunch for media only. We were given a preview of what to expect in the next two days.

Attending the lunch were a Microsoft vice president, two Apple employees, two representatives of Bungie Gaming, as well as CEOs and educators. About 30 people were present; we heard future plans of how JAMF is going to work with these companies.

Bungie Gaming was represented because they are using the JAMF software to deploy iPads to hundreds of children in hospitals. 

We learned that the healthcare industry is working to expand iPads in the hands of doctors as well as patients. JAMF software manages these to keep doctors and patients from having to do IT work.

We ate at the table with the CEO of eSpark whose software is used on Apple products in the classroom. There are case studies in Cleveland where students have raised their grades by two letters by the use of iPads with eSpark. The Apple...

With the launch of iOS 11, Apple introduced an entirely revamped App Store that includes a "Today" feature for prominently featuring app content.

"Today" includes both an "App of the Day" and a "Game of the Day" feature, with apps that are swapped out daily, and as it turns out, getting featured as an app or game of the day can result in a huge boost in downloads for developers.

According to 30 days of data sourced by Apptopia (via TechCrunch), apps and games that are featured see a major surge in downloads. An app featured on a weekday could see a download boost of up to 2,172 percent.

While games are often some of the most downloaded apps in the App Store, it's apps that see a bigger increase in downloads from being featured...

Hopper Disassembler is a binary disassembler, decompiler, and debugger for 32- and 64-bit executables. It will let you disassemble any binary you want, and provide you all the information about its content, like imported symbols, or the control flow graph! Hopper can retrieve procedural information about the disassembled code like the stack variables, and lets you name all the objects you want.

Hopper is able to transform the assembly language into a pseudo-code that is easier to understand! You can use its internal Python scripting engine to analyze binaries the way you want (this feature works only with Lion)! Starting from version 2.0, Hopper can even use GDB to debug programs!

And, last but not least, unlike all other tools of its kind, Hopper is perfectly integrated into the OS X environment.



Version 4.3.4-:

  • Fixes an issue when trying to load an old database from Hopper v2

Artlantis Studio is a unique and ideal tool for performing very high-resolution rendering easily and in real time. The new FastRadiosity engine now lets you compute images in radiosity-even in preview. Another innovative feature of Artlantis is that 3D objects and vegetation can be used directly in the preview window by simply dragging and dropping them. This enables users to work on different scenarios quickly and to simulate true virtual scenes in a real environment.



Version 6.5.2.14:

  • Did not manage correctly the position of objects linked to each other
  • Hierarchize objets were deformed
  • Light cones were not rendered
  • The billboards were oriented differently than in Artlantis

What if the iPhone 8 Plus is better than the iPhone...

Provocative title, easy article to dismiss, but take the time to make your way through.

Sam Byford, The Verge:

Yes, the iPhone X has a 5.8-inch screen compared to the iPhone 8 Plus’ 5.5-inch display. It’s also true that the X’s is higher resolution. But the 8 Plus’ screen is actually bigger. The X uses a narrower aspect ratio, so while it’s longer on the diagonal, you still get more surface area on the Plus overall — and that’s before you account for the notch and the rounded corners.

And:

Apps, websites, and so on have 414 horizontal “points” — the unit of measurement that the screen is divided into for design purposes — to fill on the Plus, while the X has 375, the same as the regular iPhone 8. The X has more vertical points, of course, because of the taller screen, but a lot of that will be occupied by the notch and home button bar.

This would not be an issue if Apple had release an iPhone X Plus at the same time as the iPhone X. This is a bit...

Some automotive wireless chargers have physical size constraints and might not fit every phone. If you’re planning on buying a car with a wireless charger, make sure that your iPhone will fit in the charger first.

To me, this is an obvious place where car manufacturers should offer a user-replaceable shell, so when you move from one form factor to another, you don’t end up with a sad face and a phone that no longer fits snugly in place.

As is, I suspect that manufacturers will force you to bring your car in to replace the Qi-charging shell if you switch phone types, if they even have a shell that fits.

New York subway to embrace NFC, enable Apple Pay...

James Barron, New York Times:

On Monday, the city’s transit system took a significant step toward a more modern way for passengers to pay their fares. Starting late next year, they can do it the way Londoners already do, by waving cellphones or certain kinds of credit or debit cards at the turnstiles in the subway or the fareboxes on buses.

A committee of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority approved a $573 million contract for a new fare payment system adapted from the one in use for several years on the London Underground and London’s commuter railroads. New electronic readers will be installed in 500 subway turnstiles and on 600 buses in New York beginning late next year, and will reach the rest of the city’s subway stations and buses by late 2020.

And:

The system will work through apps like Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay as well as “contactless cards” — credit or debit cards with embedded chips that rely on a wireless technology known as...

The Hit List 1.1.31 - Advanced reminder application.

The Hit List manages the daily chaos of your modern life. It's easy to learn - it's as easy as making lists. And it's powerful enough to let you plan, then forget, then act when the time is right.

Your life is complicated enough as it is. The tool to manage your life shouldn't be. The Hit List keeps things simple by not forcing you to learn a system. It can be as simple as just keeping a list of things to do as you would on a piece of paper. However, if you do have a task management system such as Getting Things Done by David Allen, The Hit List is flexible enough to support you.

Forget what you need to do--with confidence.

Apple ranks number six on the Green Power...

Apple places number six on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership Top 100 list, which represents the largest green power users within the Green Power Partnership. 

Usage figures are based on annualized Partner contract amounts (kilowatt-hours), not calendar year totals. Apple has already achieved 100% renewable for all its U.S. operations (including all of its data centers) and is up to 93% for worldwide operations. 

The EPA’s Green Power Partnership works with a variety of organizations — from Fortune 500 companies to local, state, and federal governments, and a growing number of colleges and universities. Using green power helps reduce the environmental impacts of electricity use and supports the development of new renewable generation capacity nationwide. Organizations can meet EPA Partnership requirements using any combination of three...

In case you simply can’t get enough predictions on how many iPhone X units Apple will sell, Nikkei Asian Review — quoting unnamed sources — predicts that only 20 million models of the next gen iPhone will ship this year. That’s about half of what was planned. the article says.

The Nikkei Asian Review says about 10 million iPhone X units are being produced each month, but lengthy supply issues will keep supply from meeting demand. Apple’s reliance on Samsung as the only OLED panel supplier and issues with a component of the 3D sensor system caused ongoing delays with the device, the article adds.

Apple is granted a patent for accurate image...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,799,139) for “accurate image alignment to a 3D model.” It involves the company’s ARKit and 3D maps of street-level images.

At this summer’s Worldwide Developer Conference, Apple introduced ARKit. It allows developers to tap into the latest computer vision technologies to build detailed virtual content on top of real-world scenes for interactive gaming, immersive shopping experiences, industrial design and more.

In the patent Apple notes that, typically, 3D maps are formed on the basis of images captured (or acquired) by an airplane scanning a section of terrain to be modeled in 3D. When capturing the images, camera position can be obtained by GPS, and the images further time stamped. The airplane is further equipped with an inertial measurement unit (IMU) such that the angles of rotation of the airplane, known as roll, pitch and yaw, can be recorded. Thus, both the position and attitude of the camera are recorded for each...

FBI director reveals that 6,900 devices have yet to...

If you were looking to live in an era of digital privacy, it may have just arrived.

According to a statement shared by FBI Director Christopher Wray at the International Association of Chiefs of Police on Sunday, the FBI has been unable to retrieve data from 6,900 mobile devices that it attempted to access over the course of the last 11 months.

“To put it mildly, this is a huge, huge problem,” Wray said. “It impacts investigations across the board — narcotics, human trafficking, counterterrorism, counterintelligence, gangs, organized crime, child exploitation.”

Wray did not specify what percentage of the inaccessible devices were run on Apple’s iOS operating system, but encryption has been an issue between Apple and the FBI since last year when the two clashed over the unlocking of an iPhone 5c owned by Syed Farook, one of the shooters in the December 2015 attacks in San Bernardino.

In the following months, the FBI took Apple to court in an effort to...

iPhone X Supply Estimated to Remain Extremely Tight...

iPhone X shipments to customers will total around 20 million units through the end of the year, suggesting availability of the smartphone will be extremely tight through the holiday shopping season, according to Nikkei Asian Review.

The reduction, said to be only half of Apple's originally planned amount for this year, is reportedly due to production issues with the iPhone X's new TrueDepth camera and 3D facial recognition system that powers Face ID and Animoji.

The good news is that Apple's manufacturers have supposedly improved their yield rate, but only towards the end of September. iPhone X is currently being produced at an estimated rate of 10 million units per month.

Apple is also believed to have already started negotiations with...

Apple has just opened its swankiest retail location to date.

Over the weekend, Apple opened its first “Town Square” retail store in Chicago.

The location marks Apple’s 497th retail store and replaces Apple’s flagship North Michigan Ave store which opened in 2003.

The new location features massive slabs of glass beneath a roof that seems to float solemnly above. The space meets the Chicago river on one side and a plaza outside the Chicago Tribune offices on the other with a massive amount of underground square footage devoted to showing off Apple’s latest products.

Back in September, Apple retail head Angela Ahrendts announced a series of moves that are aiming to build a more tight-knit relationship between the company’s retail spaces and the communities they sit inside. The “town squares,” as they’ve been dubbed, include redesigned Genius Bars, rotating product displays and “boardrooms” built for local businesses to meet and learn more about the...

How to take Live Photos during a FaceTime call in...

You can take a Live Photo during a FaceTime call with macOS High Sierra. Just clickand the Live Photo is saved to your Photos app. The Live Photos feature of recent iPhones is a lot of fun. It captures 1.5 seconds of movement surrounding a 12-megapixel still image (think the “moving newspaper" photos in the Harry Potter films).

If the person you’re chatting with has enabled Live Photo feature, you'll see a camera button during your FaceTime call right on the screen. Hover your cursor over the FaceTime window to summon up the button. The pic will appear in the Photos app.

If you want to allow someone to take a Live Photo of you while you're having a FaceTime video chat, you'll need to enable it. It's off by default. To enable Live Photos:

  • Launch FaceTime.
  • Click on Preferences. Click the box for Allow Live Photos.

Apple spent $1.86 million in lobbying expenditures in the third quarter of 2017, a 74% increase from $1.07 million from the same period in 2016, according to a new report from Consumer Watchdog, a nonprofit organization dedicated “to providing an effective voice for taxpayers and consumers in an era when special interests dominate public discourse, government and politics.”

But that’s a drop in the bucket compared to some companies.  AT&T and Google third-quarter lobbying expenditures this year both topped $4 million with the telecommunications conglomerate barely edging out the Internet giant for having spent the most money in the period to influence federal policymakers, Consumer Watchdog said today.

AT&T barely kept the lead as its 2017 third quarter expenses increased to $4.43 million from $4.11 million, an 8% increase from the third quarter of 2016, according to lobbying disclosure reports...

Apple, Samsung Face New iPhone Damages Trial

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Reuters: U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California issued her order late on Sunday, 10 months after the U.S. Supreme Court set aside a $399 million award against Samsung, whose devices include the Galaxy. The three Apple patents covered design elements of the iPhone such as its black rectangular front face, rounded corners, and colorful grid of icons for programs and apps. Koh's order is a setback for Apple, which called a retrial unnecessary and said the award should be confirmed. The $399 million represented profit from Samsung's sales of infringing smartphones, though the South Korean company has said it deserved reimbursement if it prevailed in the litigation. It was part of a $548 million payment that Samsung made to Apple in December 2015. The legal dispute concerned whether the "article of manufacture" for which Samsung owed damages included its entire smartphones, or only parts that infringed Apple patents.

New York City’s transit system to support Apple Pay

New York City’s transit system is replacing the MetroCard with the ability for passengers to pay with mobile payment systems such as Apple Pay, reports The New York Times.

FBI Unable to Retrieve Encrypted Data From 6,900...

The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation was unable to retrieve data from 6,900 mobile devices that it attempted to access over the course of the last 11 months, reports the Associated Press.

FBI Director Christopher Wray shared the number at an annual conference for the International Association of Chiefs of Police on Sunday.

During the first 11 months of the current fiscal year, Wray says the 6,900 devices that were inaccessible accounted for half of the total devices the FBI attempted to retrieve data from. Wray called the FBI's inability to get into the devices a "huge, huge problem."

"To put it mildly, this is a huge, huge problem," Wray said. "It impacts investigations across the board -- narcotics, human trafficking, counterterrorism, counterintelligence, gangs, organized crime, child exploitation."Wray did not specify how many of the 6,900 devices the FBI could not...

Last week Tom's Guide reported last week that "While the smaller-sized Pixel 2’s 5-inch AMOLED panel appears to be perfectly serviceable as far as flagship smartphone displays go, it’s surprisingly the more expensive model’s 6-inch POLED screen that is presenting problems. Critics have complained of washed out colors, poor white balance, an unavoidable color shift at certain angles, and a slight graininess to solid hues." Now the problems are only getting worse with nasty burn-in

Hopper Disassembler 4.3.3- - Binary disassembler,...

Hopper Disassembler is a binary disassembler, decompiler, and debugger for 32- and 64-bit executables. It will let you disassemble any binary you want, and provide you all the information about its content, like imported symbols, or the control flow graph! Hopper can retrieve procedural information about the disassembled code like the stack variables, and lets you name all the objects you want.

Hopper is able to transform the assembly language into a pseudo-code that is easier to understand! You can use its internal Python scripting engine to analyze binaries the way you want (this feature works only with Lion)! Starting from version 2.0, Hopper can even use GDB to debug programs!

And, last but not least, unlike all other tools of its kind, Hopper is perfectly integrated into the OS X environment.



Version 4.3.3-:

  • Fixes decoding operands of MSR/MRS instructions,
  • Safer way to save files.

Apple COO Jeff Williams at far left at today's TSMC 30th Anniversary Celebration

Taiwanese chip manufacturer TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.) is now 30 years old, becoming a giant in the industry recently due to its close relationship with Apple. Apple COO Jeff Williams spoke at the company's 30th anniversary celebration, lauding the company for that relationship and also talking about how artificial intelligence will have major implications for the future.

Williams talked about TSMC's willingness to invest in plant that has helped both companies thrive. "TSMC invested $9 billion and had 6000 people working around the clock to bring up a ... fab in a record 11 months -- and in the end the execution was flawless. We've gone on to ship over. half a billion chips together in that short window." Williams remarked while thanking TSMC CEOs Mark Liu and C.C. Wei. "There are not many companies that will spend $9 billion on a single bet."

ExtraBITS for 23 October 2017

In ExtraBITS this week, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the Mac mini is important to Apple’s future (we’ll believe him when we see a real update!), Apple recommends running a specific Terminal command before selling a MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar, and we learn what the iPod’s creator is up to now.

Apple Pay continues to dominate contactless pay;...

There's a lot going on behind the scenes with Apple's contactless pay system Apple Pay and the associated Wallet app. Platform executive Jennifer Bailey attended the Money 20/20 conference yesterday, where she noted that Apple Pay is now in 20 countries around the world with about 4,000 card issuers. In those countries, Apple Pay accounts for 90 percent of mobile contactless payments.

Bailey also announced that US grocery store giant Albertsons Companies is in the process of deploying Apple Pay to 2,300 stores including all Safeway branches. Dick's Sporting Goods now takes Apple Pay at 675 locations, and high-end retailer Saks Fifth Avenue is starting to roll out Apple Pay. 

Ticketmaster is planning to support Wallet passes at all locations, which lets customers store tickets on iPhone or Apple Watch. The digital tickets can be scanned when entering a venue, making paper tickets a thing of the past for concerts, sporting events, and more.

External Link: Tim Cook Calls the Mac mini “...

It has been three years since Apple last updated the Mac mini, and that revision was in many ways a downgrade from its predecessor. Despite that dubious history, Apple CEO Tim Cook told a MacRumors reader via email that Apple plans for the Mac mini to be an “important part of the company’s product lineup in the future.” Given that Apple has ignored the Mac mini for so long, we’re taking Cook’s claim with the proverbial grain of salt, but we’d love to see Apple put a new spin on the idea of a miniature Mac.

The iPod is old enough to drive...

On this day in 2001, Apple co-founder and legend Steve Jobs introduced the first iPod to the world. That makes the iPod platform old enough to get a restricted driver's license in most of the United States. The iPod has been eclipsed by many other Apple products since then, but it was one of the products that first brought Apple to the attention of many consumers.

Up until the iPod was introduced, most MP3 players in existence were difficult to use and had limited flash storage. That first iPod had a 5GB hard drive built in that could hold "up to 1000 songs". The click wheel and menu interface of the early iPods made them incredibly easy to use with one hand, and the iconic white earbuds that came with the player quickly became a status symbol. 

The only iPod still in existence is the very iPhone-like iPod touch, with all other models discontinued over the years as the iPhone -- which brought the ability to not only play music but run a large variety of apps (more...

Apple's operating chief Jeff Williams was in Taiwan today to attend the 30th anniversary ceremony of Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation, more commonly abbreviated as TSMC. There, he spoke about artificial intelligence, the future of the semiconductor industry, and more.

Williams first reflected on how Apple and TSMC began working together seven years ago. Today, TSMC is the exclusive supplier of the A10X Fusion and A11 Bionic processors in the latest iPhones and iPads.First off, thank you. It's a real honor to be here with this distinguished group, and we're here of course to celebrate TSMC's 30 years. And it's amazing as you've seen in the slides, how far technology has been driven over that time. TSMC got its start shortly after the introduction of the legendary Cray II supercomputer, and 25 years later we put this same processing power in people's pockets with an iPhone 4 in 2010. It really is remarkable, and it was actually 2010 that the first seeds of...
