20% iTunes Cards from Best Buy Back on for Black...

Best Buy's 20 percent off iTunes cards offer is back on today. This deal was first offered on Wednesday, but quickly expired. It works like this: buy the first card at full price and get the second for 40 percent off, a 20 percent discount on the two of them when combined. These are for physical cards that are shipped to you (we also posted a deal on same-day email codes from PayPal on Friday). You can also choose to pick it up at a store. To get the deal, simply add two cards to your cart and the price will automatically be discounted. No coupon code required. Best Buy's instructions don't make that clear, but I tested the process.

20% Off iTunes Cards from Ebay/PayPal

Ebay and PayPal are offering $100 iTunes gift cards for $80, a 20 percent discount. These are for codes that are emailed to you, usually within an hour or two. I've purchased several during the last year without a hitch. They always sell out fast-if you're wanting one, don't dawdle.

If you want a Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil for the iPad Pro, you might check with your local Apple retail store. I’m not making any guarantees, but there may be a few in stock if you’re lucky.

Though the iPad Pro accessories are still showing a 4-5 waiting time for availability when you order ‘em online, I just picked up both peripherals at the Green Hills Apple Store in Nashville, TN. The Apple Pencil costs US$99 and Smart Keyboard is priced at $169.

Report: Apple plans to nix 3.5mm port on iPhone 7,...

Citing a reliable source, a report from Japanese blog Macotakara claims that Apple plans to remove the 3.5mm headphone port from the upcoming iPhone 7, helping to achieve a “more than 1mm” reduction in thickness compared to the iPhone 6s. While the screen shape and radius will remain similar, the device will once again become Apple’s thinnest iPhone ever, albeit with a new restriction: headphones will only be able to connect over Lightning or Bluetooth…

Macotakara says that...

Review: Apple’s iPad Pro is a giant expensive tablet...

Meet Apple’s largest Netflix display ever: iPad Pro. I’ve been using it for a little while now and have gathered some thoughts regarding its functionality, uses, and even the accessories like Apple Pencil and the new Smart Keyboard. Is it all worth the hype? Let’s go ahead and find out…

I detailed the iPad Pro in our unboxing video recently, so we’re not getting too in-depth with specifications. First off, this is an iPad. The word “pro” may be in its name, but that’s nothing more than a marketing gimmick. It’s a bigger iPad Air with a few changes that will cost you…

Apple patent application highlights active shutter...

Somewhere down the line, this could really come in handy.

An Apple patent application published Thursday describes a powered shutter system that automatically blocks access to speaker, microphone and other iPhone and iPad port openings, protecting the sensitive components within.

The patent application, known as Apple’s “Electronic devices with housing port shutters” application, describes a system of electrically controlled shutters disposed over the openings of critical components like speaker boxes and microphones. At the command of an onboard logic board, these shutter mechanisms can quickly block acoustic pathways — portholes — from...

The U.K. Intellectual Property Office has officially abandoned a private-copying exemption that made it legal for users to back up their music, putting a spotlight on possible problems ahead for Apple Music and iTunes Match users in the country, 1709 reports. The exemption was put in place last year to protect users backing up their own legally purchased music from the punishments faced by those pirating music online. The IPO’s decision not…

Rumor: Apple to migrate devices from LCD displays to...

Apple is expected to begin shifting its iPhones from LCD displays to improved OLED screens as of 2018. The OLED display technology, which is currently only in use on the Apple Watch, benefits from greater contrast levels and much deeper blacks as the display only illuminates to present color. This offers energy efficiency that leads to improved battery life compared lighting up the entire display each time.

Current rumors state that Apple has notified its suppliers that it wants to move to OLED iPhones in 2018, but adds that a mix of LCD and OLED iPhones are expected initially due to iPhone demand and OLED production limitations. Apple is apparently weighing how well OLED...

Mini Review: Mu Classic collapsible plug, a neat...

British plugs are very safe, being earthed and generally also having their own fuse, but there’s no denying that they are chunky things. Not a problem in the home, but less than convenient when you want to carry one with you for charging in a coffee shop.

Fortunately, a few different companies are changing that. One of them was Apple, of course, supplying UK Apple Watch owners with an extremely neat plug with flip out pins. Another is the Oneadaptr collapsible UK plug, currently on Kickstarter. A couple of commentators there drew my attention to a third option, the Mu Classic, so I gave one a try.

Having tried both this and the Apple Watch one, there are pros & cons. The Apple version is undeniably slicker in use: just lift the earth pin and the other pins lever out at the same time. It’s an...

The idea of a smart home is a long running meme in technological circles. Apple has made the biggest stride recently with HomeKit and there is now a significant ecosystem of lights, switches, and other accessories to buy for your home. That being said, smart home accessories are still novelties and quite pricey: they aren’t must-have purchases. However, this makes them great gifts for the holiday season — uncommon presents that are fun to play with and have some long-lasting usefulness. We’ve rounded up our favorite HomeKit accessories below …

While Apple Pay officially launched in Australia last week, the country’s banks are still refusing to link their cards to the digital payment system, prompting calls for the Reserve Bank to examine banks for potential anti-competitive behavior, The Sydney Morning Herald reports. Apple’s fees for using the service have been a sticking point in negotiations for months, with the company reportedly demanding the same 15 cents on every $100…

Apple TV has 20 percent of the global digital media...

As of the third quarter of 2015, the Apple TV has 20 percent of the global digital media streamer market share, according to new data from Strategy Analytics.

However, the fourth generation Apple TV didn’t go on sale until October, so had little impact on these stats. Look for Apple’s set-top box to garner a bigger share of the digital media streamer market in quarter four. Google’s Chromecase has 45 percent, Amazon Fire TV has 16 percent, Roku has 16 percent, and “others” have 13 percent, the research group says. The new report from Strategy Analytics also notes that:

Global shipments of all connected TV devices (including smart TVs, Blu-ray players, game consoles and digital media streamers) reached 53 million units in the third quarter and are on target to hit 221 million units for the full year, representing growth of 17 percent.

Australian banks refusing to sign up for Apple Pay

Australian banks are reportedly refusing to sign up for Apple Pay, Apple’s mobile payment system, and allowing customers to link their bank accounts to their iPhones.

The country’s Reserve Bank has been urged to examine potential anti-competitive behavior in the emerging card-free payments market amid claims the banks have frozen out Apple Pay, which was recently introduced in the country, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. Labor's spokesman on digital innovation, Ed Husic, has written to the RBA and the Australian Bankers' Association, raising his concern that Australians are being "denied choices" in digital payments, the article adds.

Apparently, banks in Australia aren’t too keen on the idea of giving Apple a bit of the US$2 billion they earn annually from interchange fees. In the US, Apple earns close to 15¢ on every $100 of transactions. Apple’s trying for a similar...

Apple works on ‘bumper system’ to protect iOS...

Earlier this month Apple applied for a patent for a “life vest” for iPhones so they won’t sink if dropped in water. Now Apple has applied for a patent (number 20150341070) ) with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for a “bumper system” for iOS devices and Mac laptops.

In the filing for the patent, dubbed “screen protection using actuated bumper,” Apple notes the screens of portable electronics devices include one or more fragile elements such one or more layers of glass. Such devices are commonly dropped. 

For example, an electronic device may be dropped by a user, fall from a table, fly from a user's hand when a user trips, and/or otherwise free fall to the ground or other surface. Drop events of these or other kinds may damage fragile elements of screens such as glass layers and repairing damage to screens may be “burdensome, expensive, and/or impractical,” according...

Backing up your own music now illegal for Brits, and...

Back in the summer, the UK’s High Court overturned legislation allowing citizens to duplicate copyrighted material for personal use. The British government has now accepted this ruling, meaning that the private-copying exception to anti-piracy laws no longer applies – and the government will not attempt to reintroduce it.

This means that we’re back where we started: doing something as simple as ripping a CD, backing-up your music to Time Machine or uploading it to a cloud service is once more illegal, reports copyright blog 1709.

So where does this leave ordinary users in the UK? Clearly some will have been unaware of the introduction of the exception last year, and possibly a larger minority will have been unaware of the rescinding of...

Blue Origin Rocket Sticks Landing

Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket this week made history when it landed intact in Texas. The unmanned crew capsule returned safely from a test flight that took it 330,000 feet into the air. The New Shepard could become the first reusable booster -- it's scheduled to return to space in a few months. It's now tucked into a storage facility at a launch site in West Texas. Blue Origin, founded by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, aims to lay the foundation for an enduring human presence in space -- a goal that reusing rocket boosters could help to achieve.

iMac shipments expected to grow five percent in 2016

iMac shipments are expected to grow five percent on year in 2016. iMac's main manufacturer, Quanta Computer, reportedly has increased its personnel for the product line for 2016, according to DigiTimes.

In the third quarter, Apple sold about 5.7 million iMacs and MacBooks, up four percent from the same quarter a year ago. The news isn’t as good for everyone else. 

All-in-one PC shipments may drop a double-digit percentage on-year in 2015 due to weaker-than-expected demand. Shipments in 2016 are unlikely to see any major growth and may stay flat from 2015, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

“However, compared to Apple, which continues to add new innovations to its iMac products, other all-in-one PC vendors have mainly focused on competing over price which could create a negative impact on their gross margins,” says DigiTimes.

Australian banks accused of anti-competitive...

If you’re wondering why Apple Pay is as yet only available for Amex cards in Australia, it’s not because Apple isn’t working hard enough to introduce it there: it’s because Australian banks are refusing to sign up for it. The opposition Labor Party spokesman on digital innovation is now suggesting that this refusal may constitute anti-competitive behaviour, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

The Reserve Bank has been urged to examine potential anti-competitive behaviour in the emerging card-free payments market amid claims the banks have frozen out newcomer Apple Pay […]

Audioengine's D3 Premium 24-bit DAC will beef...

If you want to really improve the audio on your Mac's speakers or headphones, plug in the $149.99 D3 Premium 24-bit DAC (digital-to-analog converter) from Audioengine. It bypasses your computer’s headphone jack and sends music directly through USB. The result: a noticeable improvement in the sound coming from your music, movies and games.

I have my SoundSticks speakers plugged into the D3, which is about the size of a flash drive. They sounded good before; they sound great now.

No special software is needed to set up the Audioengine DAC. The D3, housed in an aluminum case, plugs directly into an USB port on your Mac (or PC) and the output connects to headphones, speakers, or any audio system.

Once it's connected, you'll tell the difference immediately. Music, vocals, sound effects and, well, pretty much any type of audio is more nuanced, crisp, and clarity. Plus, bass...

Image Viewer does one job, but does it reasonably...

If you need to quickly view an entire folder of images, Image Viewer from Abacus does the job. It's a one-trick pony for Mac OS X (10.7 and higher), but does its trick well. Plus, it's only US$2.99 at the Mac App Store.

With Image Viewer, you can open a file and then view all image files in that folder by clicking the mouse or pressing the keyboard. This isn't something I normally do very often, but your needs may differ.

If you use Image Viewer frequently, you can make it your default app for viewing pictures. The interface is simple. You can view images and navigate with keyboard arrow keys, toolbar buttons, or the main menu. You can do the same with thumbnails. For example, double clicking a thumbnail will also open the image in single view mode. 

You can open images by selecting Open from the main menu, right clicking in...

Pandora is streaming Adele’s 25 and her label can’t...

The Verge:

Adele’s 25 is the biggest album in the world right now, and it’s made it there all without a single stream on Spotify. In fact, it might have made it there because there hasn’t been a single stream on Spotify: Adele and her label made the decision not to stream 25 anywhere online, encouraging people to actually buy the album or its songs outright. But despite the ban, some services have songs from 25 up streaming.

25 isn’t on Pandora because Adele specifically wanted it there. It’s on Pandora because Adele and her label don’t have a say.

This is a great example of the giant hairball that is streaming services and the confusion that consumers have with regards to which service does what and how they play you music.

Apple Looks To Introduce OLED Displays In iPhone...

An anonymous reader writes: Apple is expected to integrate organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display technology in its iPhone handsets from 2018. The Cupertino-based giant will jump from liquid crystal display (LCD), which has been used in iPhones since 2007, to OLED – turning to suppliers like LG Displays, according to Japanese reports. The switch follows the steps of other smartphone makers such as Samsung and LG, which have both already integrated OLED technology in their mobile device ranges.

2015 has been an interesting year, to say the least.

In February, TUAW was shut down, leaving a large group of us without employment. Some folks had other blogging jobs to fall back on or move to, but for three of us, we decided to start anew with Apple World Today. Over the year we've had some changes in staff due to bloggers needing more steady income, leading to today's team of Dennis Sellers and myself. 

The arrival of Dennis on the scene was something I am still very thankful for; he was seeing waning readership at his former website and a mutual friend of ours -- Chuck Joiner of MacVoices -- had the brainstorm that Dennis would be a good fit for AWT. He was right, and the two of us work together as a team very well. Thank you, Chuck, and thank you Dennis for being an incredibly hard worker.

And I'm also thankful to all of our frequent contributors, especially James Kendricks, Dave Caolo, Krystian Kozerawski, and Alex Jurgensen...

If you’re buying gifts for music lovers in your life, there has never been a better time to do it: there’s a vast range of products to choose from at every price level. But here I’m focusing on the premium end of the market – a main gift for someone who you love as much as they love music!

V-MODA makes some of the best earphones available. While sports stars and celebrities are normally seen wearing Beats, you’re more likely to find a pair of V-MODA cans wrapped around the necks of DJs. And if I’m going to trust someone’s judgement on an audio product, I’ll choose a music professional over a sportsperson any day.

In the past, I’ve owned the Crossfade M100 and now, the award-winning earphones are back with an added feature: wireless connectivity. I’ve been using the Crossfade Wireless for the past week or so, and they’re rather fantastic…

Apple wants to make iOS, OS X devices more...

While not making them waterproof (although rumors claim the upcoming iPhone 7 will indeed be waterproof), Apple wants to make its iOS devices, and perhaps Mac laptops more resistant to spills. The company has filed for a patent (number 20150340795) with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for “electronic devices with housing port shutters.”

In the patent filing, Apple says that electronic devices such as laptops, smartphones, and other portable electronic devices are often exposed to environmental contaminants, especially through their speaker, camera, and microphone ports. For example, a user of a laptop or smartphone may accidentally expose the computer or phoee to moisture or dirt. 


Pictured is a perspective view of an illustrative electronic device such as a portable electronic device that has ports in accordance with an embodiment of the patent.

Two studies show the most & least common things...

The average Apple Watch owner interacts with their Watch 60-80 times a day, but most of that usage doesn’t involve anything more than looking at the watch face, checking the time and information displayed in the complications. The least common thing people do on the Watch is read emails.

These are among the findings of two very different studies noted by Fortune. Wristly’s latest update provides a whole raft of data about what people do with their watches, based on a large panel of 1450 owners, but relying on users to estimate their usage. A Stockholm University study took the exact opposite approach,...

Facebook today has unveiled its own SDK for the new Apple TV’s tvOS. In a blog post on its Developers site, Facebook says that using the Facebook SDK on tvOS will allow developers to build “immersive” social experiences on the platform including tools like login, sharing, and analytics.

One area in which many believe the new Apple TV has fallen short is text input, especially when logging into services and applications. Facebook’s SDK for tvOS, however, will users to quickly login using their Facebook credentials. If a user were to choose the Facebook method, they would be presented with a unique 8 digit code that they could then enter into their smartphone or tablet to authorize the application.

Apple has long had Garageband available for iOS devices, offering what is essentially a feature for feature companion for the desktop Mac app, albeit with a user interface tweaked for the smaller touch display. But it’s not much help to pros that have their workflow in Apple’s professional audio editing suite for Mac, Logic Pro.

Report claims iPhones will adopt OLED displays in...

Apple plans to introduce organic light-emitting diode displays for iPhones starting in 2018, claims Nikkei Asian Review. South Korea's LG Display is already planning capacity upgrades, the article adds.

So far the only product Apple makers with an OLED is the Apple Watch. LG provides the smartwatch displays. iPhones and iPads use LCD technology, which offers lower manufacturing costs than OLED screens.

LCDs use a backlight behind the screen to emit light, and act as a valve allowing different amounts of this light to create the colors and images on the display. OLED is made up of many tiny LEDs, each emitting their own light and colors. They don’t require an “always on” backlight, as each LED can be on or off as needed, and emitting the right kind of light needed to create the images you’re seeing. 

OLED technology is used in high...

The iPad Pro might be one of those new products held back by old thinking.

Apple buys Star Wars motion-capture firm Faceshift


With the teetering stack of virtual reality headsets coming to market over the next year, eyes in the tech sector are being consistently turned towards facial recognition software. While Facebook has made moves to develop facial mapping technology for the Oculus Rift, news has now emerged of an intriguing buy up by Apple.

The company has announced that it has acquired Faceshift, a Zurich-based startup responsible for developing technology capable of real-time facial-capture and avatar creation. The tech boasts plenty of high-profile use, having even been used in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens to give alien characters an extra semblance of reality.

Could Apple really be interested in any aspect of Virtual Reality? I think this buy is fascinating but I don’t think it’s use inside the company will be as obvious as many are assuming.

Apple Watch benefits from deeper blacks and greater energy efficiency thanks to OLED technology

Apple is expected to begin shifting iPhones from LCD displays to improved OLED screens starting in 2018, according to Nikkei Asian Review. Currently the display technology is only used by Apple to produce Apple Watch displays while iPhones and iPads use older LCD technology. OLED benefits from greater contrast levels and much deeper blacks as the display only illuminates to present color. This offers energy efficiency that leads to improved battery life compared lighting up the entire display each time.Nikkei claims that Apple has notified its suppliers that it wants to move to OLED...

Einstein’s general theory of relativity at 100: 5...


Wormholes, warp speed, space-time anomalies — science fiction wouldn’t be the same without Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity. And in the real world, we would probably also notice a few things missing from our lives.

The German-born physicist finished presenting his groundbreaking theory to the scientific world at the Prussian Academy of Sciences exactly 100 years ago today.

It was a simple, elegant set of equations that described space-time as a stretchy, flexible fabric, and gravity as deformations in space-time rather than a “force.”

I remember first learning about the general theory of relativity in school and being completely blown away by it. I have never fully understood it but the ideas, concepts and things it made possible opened my young mind to the power of the universe and the utter brilliance of Einstein.

Podcast 485: Home for the holidays

Well, Susie finally finished her iPad Pro review, but not before recording this episode of the Macworld Podcast. (Turn up those headphones—can't you just hear the anxiety in her voice?) And for the record, the Pencil she ordered on November 11 still hasn't arrived as of this writing, so thanks to Apple for the loaner unit.

But that's not the focus of today's podcast! It's almost time for American Rules Thanksgiving, the glorious long weekend of hanging around with relatives, eating too much, watching sports on TV, and answering questions about technology. Should you get your parents using two-factor authentication? How do you broach the subject of phishing? Is it OK to just write their passwords down for them? Glenn and Susie have plenty of advice, and you should feel free to share your own in the comments. Happy Thanksgiving!

Apple has launched a new Christmas commercial called Someday At Christmas - Stevie Wonder + Andra Day. It features both of those artists, but only features a brief look at a MacBook Pro running Logic Pro X at the beginning, and another quick glimpse later in the spot. It also features two brief looks at an Apple Watch on Andra Day's wrist. It closes with the message "Love, ." It has the kind of heartwarming feel Apple has used in other holiday spots in recent years. What do you think?

This is kind of hard to watch. (credit: iFixit)

iFixit's product teardowns often show you how to fix gadgets, but in the case of Apple's Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil accessories for the iPad Pro they have been more academic. Neither device is meant to be opened, and the act of opening them also happens to irreparably destroy them.

It's still interesting to see what's inside them, though, even more so when you don't have to sacrifice your own expensive accessories to do it. After cutting the keyboard's canvas open with a knife, iFixit...

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in the US, the day we all pause to reflect just on how much we have to be thankful for. The next big holiday, of course, is Christmas Day on December 25. Apple has released a "Wonder-ful" Christmas advertisement that doesn't overtly show off the company's products, instead focusing on Stevie Wonder and Andra Day performing his 1967 holiday classic "Someday At Christmas". 

Wonder is seen using VoiceOver to set up a recording session on his MacBook, but that's not the focus of the ad. Happy Holidays!

Review: Urban Armor Gear’s Composite Case for iPad...

Two weeks into using the iPad Pro, I’m even more convinced of something I believed during week one: the 12.9″ iPad is good on its own, but if an accessory adds enough bulk to make it feel like a poor man’s laptop, it starts to stink. I suspect that’s why Apple let another company release the first iPad Pro keyboard case; once you’ve tried something as big as Logitech’s Create, you’ll start searching for a “smarter” solution.

From where I stand, Urban Armor Gear’s new ...

The Tor Project seeks broader public support through...

Even online anonymity and privacy need a crowd of sorts--crowdfunders, to be specific. The Tor Project recently kicked off a crowdfunding drive, using journalist and filmmaker Laura Poitras as an example of the importance of the online anonymity tools.

In a blog post announcing the funding drive, Tor quotes Poitras saying that she never could have worked on and help break the Snowden story without Tor. Poitras worked with Glenn Greenwald on the initial revelations from documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. She also directed the Snowden documentary Citizenfour. “Tor is an essential tool that...fosters free speech and independent voices,” she said.
