With the release of macOS Sierra and iOS betas on Tuesday, Apple also released a new tool for developers, allowing them to respond to reviews on the Mac and iOS App Stores. But the API goes deeper than just giving developers a process to respond to reviews, it also makes it easier for customers to leave reviews, Apple told me this morning when we talked about the new feature.

APFS is coming soon: iOS 10.3 will automatically...

After many years and at least one false start, Apple announced at WWDC last year that it would begin shipping a new, modern file system in 2017. Dubbed APFS (for Apple File System), it is designed to improve support for solid-state storage and encryption and to safeguard data integrity. When released, it will finally replace the nearly two-decade-old HFS+ filesystem that Apple has been tacking new features onto since 1998.

An early version of APFS was included in macOS Sierra as a beta for developers to experiment with, but it was intentionally limited in some important ways; it couldn't be used as a boot drive, it didn't support Fusion...

USITC to look into Nokia’s complaint against Apple

The U.S. International Trade Commission will investigate a complaint by Nokia Technologies alleging that Apple has imported smartphones, tablet computers and other electronics that infringe upon its patents, reports Reuters.

The USITC said in a statement it hadn’t yet made any decision on the merits of the case by the Finland-based Nokia Corp unit, which is seeking a cease and desist order and a limited exclusion order. In December 2016 Nokia announced that it had today filed a number of complaints against Apple in Germany and the U.S, alleging that Apple products infringe a number of its patents.

Ilkka Rahnasto, head of Patent Business at Nokia, said that, since agreeing a license covering some patents from the Nokia Technologies portfolio in 2011, Apple declined subsequent offers made by Nokia to license other of its patented inventions which are used by many...

Apple makes it easy to find lost AirPods in iOS 10.3

Losing an AirPod is a legitimate possibility, and possibly the biggest worry that people have about using Apple’s new Bluetooth wireless earphones. Apple is no longer pretending this isn’t a real concern with a brand-new Find My AirPods feature in the Find My iPhone app.

How it works: Bluetooth. According to Mashable, your lost AirPod doesn’t have to be close by for you to find it, but it does have to be in Bluetooth range of another one of your Apple devices connected to your iCloud account. If you know the general area your missing AirPods is in—say, your living room—but have no idea what crevice it’s trapped in, you...

Ford has become the latest car manufacturer to draw high-level employees away from Apple, with marketing executive Musa Tariq appointed as a vice president and chief brand officer of the major automobile producer. He’ll go to work there on Jan. 30. In this new role, Tariq is responsible for further building and differentiating the company’s Ford brand.

Apple hired Tariq — a "social media whiz" who previously worked under Apple Stores chief Angela Ahrendts at Burberry — in August 2014 as the retail division's new digital marketing director.

Before Tariq’s new role at Apple, he had worked alongside Ahrendts at Burberry to grow the luxury brand through campaigns such as Tweettalks, which shared backstage images of outfits at the London Fashion Show before they hit the runway. At Nike, Tariq took lead on an ad...

On the Likelihood of Losing Your AirPods

Geoffrey Fowler on Twitter, linking to Joanna Stern’s piece on the new “Find My AirPods” feature in the first iOS 10.3 beta:

This was a no-brainer: Apple’s now got a tool to help locate their
tiny $160 wireless earbuds you’re destined to lose.

I’ve seen this “destined to lose” argument in a lot of reviews of the AirPods. Like: “Pros: Good sound, great battery life, easy pairing. Cons: Expensive, easily lost.

And because they’re small, they certainly could be easily lost. But that’s true of all small things. You can easily lose a $100 casino chip. You can easily lose expensive jewelry. It happens. But it’s not that common, because you know these things are valuable. It’s human nature to be more careful with valuable items. If AirPods cost $29...

“Limited authorized channels result in inflated, high repair prices and high overturn of electronic items,” the legislators who introduced the New York bill wrote. “Another concern is the large amount of electronic waste created by the inability to affordably repair broken electronics.”

Samsung: no, Apple, you can’t keep that $400 million

Samsung has told the Federal Circuit that Apple was flat wrong in arguing that a recent U.S. Supreme Court finding on design patent awards didn’t disturb its claim on a $400 million award, saying Monday that it took “chutzpah” for the iPhone maker to try to stop Samsung’s new trial, according to Law 360, a site that covers legal news.

In December, the Supreme Court sided with Samsung in its never-ending patent fight with Apple, throwing out an appeals court ruling that said the South Korean company had to pay a $399 million penalty to its American rival for copying key iPhone designs.

The justices in their 8-0 ruling sent the case back to the lower court for further proceedings. The court held that a patent violator doesn’t always have to hand over its entire profits from the sales of products using stolen designs, if the designs covered only certain components and not the whole thing.

Persistent reports that Apple is working on introducing long-range wireless charging technology in the iPhone 8 may be overly optimistic, suggests a new report.

Long-range charging would free devices from the need to be placed onto a charging mat, allowing them to be charged anywhere from three to twenty feet away from a charger. Bloomberg first reported that Apple was working on this tech almost a year ago, and there have been multiple suggestions since then of a tie-in with Energous, whose WattUp technology raises the prospect of iPhones being charged anywhere within a room.

Two particular reports seemed to add weight to this claim, as a key Apple supplier partnered...

macOS Sierra: PiPifier Gives You Picture-in-Picture...

macOS Sierra introduced Picture-in-picture. It’s a feature in which you can watch videos while doing another task. For example, watch a YouTube video while typing up a report. The video is displayed in a small window that you can drag around the screen. This works for most videos on the web, but not all. Here’s how to force PiP for all HTML5 videos.

Apple releases macOS Sierra 10.12.3 update

It’s not a huge update, but it might help out a bit.

On Monday, Apple released macOS Sierra 10.12.3, the newest version of its macOS 10.12 operating system.

The update, which weighs in as a 1.05 gigabyte download via the App Store, adds the following fixes and changes:

– Improves automatic graphics switching on MacBook Pro (15-inch, October 2016).

– Resolves graphics issues while encoding Adobe Premiere Pro projects on MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (13- and 15-inch, October 2016).

– Fixes an issue that prevented the searching of scanned PDF documents in Preview.

Apple hasn’t specified too many other changes with the update, so it’s sort of a question of installing it and seeing how it behaves.

If anyone out there’s installed and played with macOS Sierra 10.12.3 and has any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.

Geff is a new virtual guitar effects rack for macOS

Nikolas Konstantakopoulos has introduced Geff 1.0, a virtual guitar rack for macOS. It’s a standalone audio effects application to use with your guitar like you would a collection of stompboxes. 

Geff includes a variety of effects. You can add as many effects and re-arrange them as you like. It offers handling for adding and rearranging effects, using MIDI learning to map almost any parameter of its effects to your MIDI controller.

Geff is separated to three components, Header or Input component, Middle or Effects, and the Footer or Output component. As their names suggest, the Input component manages the audio input, the Effects create and includes the used effects, and the output manages the audio output. In addition, Geff has the ability to map your MIDI controller to almost any of its parameters.

Geff requires macOS 10.6.6 or later. It costs $19.99 and is available worldwide exclusively through...

How to set a default view in the macOS Sierra Finder

The Finder in macOS Sierra offers four ways to view items in a window: as a list, in columns, or in Cover Flow view. To choose a view, use the View buttons at the top of the Finder window.

In the icon view, each file or folder is represented by an icon (such as the Mac desktop). List view shows details about a file or folder, including its attributes. 

Column view provides a visual trail of where you’ve been, and displays a hierarchical view of where a file is stored. Cover Flow is a modified list view that displays a thumbnail view of a file’s contents.

GoPower Plus is a convenient iOS device charger (...

Kanex’s GoPower Plus is a $49.95 portable power solution with a built-in micro USB with a Lightning adapter for use with both Apple and Android devices. I’ve never used it with an Android device (cause I don’t own one), but it does come in handy for use with my iPhone 7 Plus when I’m visiting my relatives for the weekend.

Juiced with 8,000 mAh of power, the GoPower Plus can deliver two full charges to your smartphone. An extra USB port and 2A of charging lets you power up an additional device while you’re juicing your iPhone. 

The GoPower Plus enables pass-through charging while connected to a power source. Your device charges first, then GoPower Plus recharges itself.

The GoPower Plus — which is Apple MFi Certified, which means it’s specifically made to fit with your Apple devices — features a classy aluminum finish.  An LED indicator displays battery levels and charge status.

The GoPower Plus is smaller...

Eat, pray, shoot, Part 2: Our best digital...

Welcome to the second part of Have Gear, Will Travel’s digital photography special. In part one, I talked about the camera gear, hardware, software, and apps I use to make myself look like a semi-competent photographer. Depending on where I’m going and what I plan on doing while I’m there, the photography gear I jam into my backpack can range from dirt cheap to questionably expensive. All the tips I’m providing today, however, come at the low, low cost of free.

In order to better illustrate these techniques, tweaks, and suggestions, I spent a week in Montana this past November taking in the sights in Bozeman, Pray, Yellowstone National Park,...

Peter Dinklage From Game of Thrones Fears His iPhone

What does the actor who plays a character who faces dragons, monsters, magic, and even his very own father fear in real life? If it’s Peter Dinklage—Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, we’re talking about, it’s his iPhone 7. Mr. Dinklage gave an interview to CNET to promote Rememory, a SciFi film debuting this week at the Sundance Film Festival. In that interview, he said, “I just got an iPhone about six months ago, friends made fun of me. I’m afraid of it.” There’s a reason, though, and that’s concern over how tech is changing the way humans interact. To wit, when people approach him, the interaction has become solely about the selfie-with-Peter. He said, “We’re not even allowing a memory to sink in. They’ll have proof of meeting me, but […] there wasn’t anything to remember, because all you did was just take a picture.” It’s an interesting perspective on this...

Yoky Matsuoka, an expert in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence, has returned to Alphabet's Nest Labs after serving less than nine months on the job at Apple, reports Bloomberg. She’ll serve as chief technology officer at Nest Labs.

Matsuoka joined Apple in May to help run the iPhone maker's health technology initiatives, but she left toward the end of 2016, notes Bloomberg. She was an early Nest executive when iPod creator Tony Fadell founded the startup with Matt Rogers in 2010, and she was there when Google bought the business for more than $3 billion in 2014. Matsuoka left the company in 2015 to lead a health data startup called Quanttus. 

In 2007, Matsuoka won a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant for her work in neurorobotics, using technology to help disabled people and stroke victims regain...

Apple Investigating Issue With AirPods Randomly...

According to MacRumors, Apple is investigating multiple reports from iPhone owners of AirPods randomly disconnecting and reconnecting during calls. While the issue doesn't appear to be widespread, it appears to be a big enough problem to attract Apple's attention. One of the main reasons why the AirPods were so late to the market was because Apple needed more time to ensure the earpieces had reliable connectivity. Specifically, they were delayed to ensure both earpieces receive audio at the same time. MacRumors reports: A MacRumors forum thread and a long thread on Apple's Support Communities website have been generated by AirPods users who are regularly experiencing Bluetooth connection dropouts during phone calls, despite the fact that the wireless earphones almost never lose their connection when used to listen to music or anything else. MacRumors forum member protobiont wrote: "I've had this happen on two phone calls today. I am talking and suddenly the audio switches to the...
