Active OS X 10.10 zero-day exploit installs malware...

A week after researchers discovered a new privilege escalation zero-day vulnerability in Apple's latest version of OS X 10.10.4, an exploit has appeared allowing nefarious hackers to install adware and malware onto a target Mac without requiring system passwords.

0-day bug in fully patched OS X comes under active...

Hackers are exploiting a serious zero-day vulnerability in the latest version of Apple's OS X so they can perform drive-by attacks that install malware without requiring victims to enter system passwords, researchers said.

As Ars reported last week, the privilege-escalation bug stems from new error-logging features that Apple added to OS X 10.10. Developers didn't use standard safeguards involving additions to the OS X dynamic linker dyld, a failure that lets attackers open or create files with root privileges that can reside anywhere in the OS X file system. It was disclosed last week by security researcher Stefan Esser.

On Monday, researchers from anti-malware firm Malwarebytes said a new malicious installer is exploiting the vulnerability to surreptitiously infect Macs with several types of adware including...

Apple Reportedly Testing MVNO Carrier Service in U.S.

Apple is in "talks" with carrier services to launch its own Apple-branded wireless service, according to BusinessInsider (BI). Citing unnamed sources "close to Apple," BI said that the talks revolved around an Apple-branded mobile virtual network operator service, or MVNO. This would mean that Apple would lease bandwidth from companies like AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and/or T-Mobile, and repackage it as its own carrier service. This sort of service is what powers Walmart's StraightTalk, TracFone, and a host of others. According to BI, iOS devices with an Apple SIM card would automatically switch customers to whatever network had the best signal at that moment. Furthermore, Apple is already testing such a service in the U.S., and is talking to carriers in Europe. Check out BI.

Apple Buys 43 Acres in San Jose, Enough to Turn...

Apple has purchased 43 acres in San Jose, California, a plot of land big enough to hold a building as large as its massive Apple Campus 2, the so-called Spaceship HQ. The spot is the first known land purchase by Apple in San Jose, but it's right next door to 300,000 square feet of office space recently leased by the company.

An Apple virtual network service: How it would work...

Citing "sources close to Apple," Business Insider reports that Apple is privately testing a U.S. mobile phone service, and is also in talks with European carriers to offer something similar. Back in 2011, Apple filed a patent regarding such a move. More on the patent in a moment.

According to Business Insider, here's how the company's mobile phone service would work: instead of paying your carrier every month, you would pay Apple directly for data, calls, and texts. Apple then provides you with everything you used to get from your carrier, but the Apple SIM switches between carriers to get the best service.

The services would be provided on an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) basis. A MVNO is a mobile operator that doesn't own its own spectrum and usually doesn't have its own network infrastructure. Instead, MVNOs have business arrangements with traditional mobile operators to buy minutes of use for...

Apple’s ‘Ecosystem’ Developer Video

Apple has a cool video on its developer siste called Ecosystem, as noted by Redditor hollowgram. I'm not sure when it was posted, and I wasn't able to find it on any of the sub pages of Apple's Developer Videos site, but I believe it was made for WWDC 2015 (Apple's WWDC 2015 developer video page). Whenever it was made, it focuses on how developers and end-users are able to make more out of Apple's ecosystem because it's just that, a true ecosystem. Apple doesn't haven't a sharing feature built into the videos posted to its developer site, but you can click through and watch it.

iPhone 6s rumors: Force Touch, selfie camera,...

The yearly iPhone refresh is a fact of life, as unmistakeable a sign of fall as back-to-school sales and baseball playoffs. And one thing you can count on just as certainly as a new iPhone is the rumor mill spinning out of control leading up to its unveiling. The iPhone 6s is no exception.

To help make sense of the chaotic hearsay, we’ll collect every rumor that surfaces about the iPhone 6s, from its reported specs to its guesstimated release date, and everything in between—as well as try to discern the plausibly of the rumor. If tradition holds, expect Apple to officially announce its next flagship phone in early September. It’s going to be a long, rumor-packed summer...

Apple releases OS X El Capitan beta 6 to developers

Apple today has released the sixth developer preview of OS X 10.11 El Capitan. Just last week the company released beta 5 to developers, although the update appeared to be very minor and didn’t include any noticeable changes. It is likely that this new beta has a similar focus, with Apple working mainly on under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements. The update carries the build number 15A244d.

We’ll update this post with enhancements as they are discovered. The update is available via the Mac App Store now and via the Developer Center.

Poll: Should iOS 9’s Proactive make privacy...

I was genuinely excited when my colleague Mark Gurman revealed iOS 9’s Proactive — Apple’s competitor to the Android assistant Google Now — because it sounded like something that would radically improve my daily iPhone use. “Like Google Now,” Mark said, “Proactive will automatically provide timely information based on the user’s data and device usage patterns,” details Apple confirmed when it officially announced Proactive at WWDC. Google Now’s success made an Apple response inevitable: who wouldn’t want an iPhone that correctly anticipated your needs, reducing your time spent manually hunting for...

Report: Apple testing its own mobile service plan in...

It’s been almost a decade since Apple first filed a patent to become a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), but Cupertino’s plan is reportedly still underway.

According to Business Insider, Apple is secretly conducting trials to set up its own MVNO service in the U.S., and is also in conversations with European telecoms companies to bring the service to the other side of the pond. This MVNO service would essentially make the Cupertino tech company its own carrier, with iPhone owners paying Apple directly for cell service and data plans.

NetMarketShare: Mac OS X, iOS both gain market share...

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for Mac OS X and iOS both rose in July.




According to the report, among desktop operating systems, Mac OS X had 7.66% of the global market share in July compared to 7.54% in June (that’s global market share; in the US it’s over 12%). The all-time high for OS X was in October 2013 when it had 7.73%. Windows remains dominant with 90.85% as of July. That's down from 91.07% in June.

iOS had 41.56% of the mobile operating system market share in July, up from from 40.83% in June. This compares to 51.07% for Android, 2.51% for Windows Phone, 2.11% for Java ME, 1.47% for Symbian, and 1.16% for...

Analyst predicts new iMacs this quarter; what about...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the iMac will be updated this quarter with even better screens and improved processors. This begs the question: what about the MacBook Pro?

But back to the iMac. Better screens than the 5K model with Retina display? Kuo thinks we'll see an all-in-one with a LED phosphor material called KSF that will boost color saturation. Purportedly, LED backlights with KSF phosphor are emerging as a new wide color gamut solution.



As for the processor upgrade, the question is whether it will be the latest Intel Broadwell processor or Intel's not-yet-available Skylake (iMacs currently use Haswell chips). With Apple's track record of getting Intel's latest and greatest before anyone else, I'm betting on the latter.

Apple may add voicemail transcription to Siri's...

With iOS 9, Apple is working to make Siri a more intuitive, powerful personal assistant. But a new feature not ready for the next major mobile upgrade’s September debut is voicemail transcription, which Cupertino is reportedly readying to roll out next year.

Apple employees are currently testing the new feature, which is called iCloud Voicemail, according to Business Insider. iCloud Voicemail works by enlisting Siri to answer and record incoming calls. She’ll even be able to tell people why you’re not picking up the phone and share your location, if you enable those features. And then she’ll transcribe what the voicemail says, in the same way she recognizes what you say when you ask her to perform a specific task.

How to get Siri to shut up...

I love Siri. I use it all the time. But there are some occasions where having that voice coming out of my phone is just really inconvenient. Fortunately, Apple designed Siri so that you can shut off the vocal responses and just see replies in text.

Pop into Settings > General > Siri, and then tap on Voice Feedback:

Tapping on Voice Feedback provides two choices -- Always and Handsfree Only (see below). Select Handsfree Only, and now when Siri answers a question or does something for you, the response is text only. 

If "Hey Siri" happens to be turned on and you invoke Apple's digital assistant by using the phrase, Siri assumes that you're unable to touch the iOS device screen and still provides a voice response. By the way, if you ask Siri to shut up, it won't respond verbally... but you may hurt its feelings (see image at top of this post).

The feature, if successful, will allow Siri to take your iCloud Voicemail messages as opposed to having them go to a standard digital audio recorder.

While iCloud Voicemail can relay information s to where you are and why you can’t pick up the phone, Siri could possible transcribe incoming voicemails as needed.

The service, if successful, could appear in iOS 10 and later versions of the operating system...

Smart door lock maker August has just added Apple Watch support to its iOS app. Users can view door unlock status through the Watch’s Glances menu, and receive notifications when someone opens the door. The app also lets users lock or unlock the door, and view a log of recent activity.

August’s $250 lock replaces an existing deadbolt and connects to smartphones via Bluetooth, while an optional $50 Wi-Fi hub lets users control the lock remotely over the Internet. The lock is powered by AA batteries, and includes a standard keyhole as a fallback.

The photos highlight a Force Touch implementation and appear to incorporate the same rounded glass edges and general shape, with no change to ear speaker or camera positioning. On the back, the LCD module and other internals are obscured by the usual protective metal shielding, though a few differences stand out.

The most radical change is an off-center rectangular cutout located toward the top of the screen. An unknown component can be seen poking through, though...

Meet Dennis Sellers

Hi, Dennis Sellers here. I'm happy to be joining the Apple World Today team. It feels like I've come home.

I was the news editor for MacCentral (which eventually grew into the biggest Apple news site in the world) from 1998 to 2003 under the guidance of the late Stan Flack, a dear friend of mine. It was bought by Mac Publishing in 1999 and eventually folded into Macworld. I launched Macsimum News and ran it from 2004 to 2010 until it was acquired by Xplain Corp., the folks behind the MacTech print magazine, website and conference series. For the past three years, I've been the editor of Apple Daily Report, a site for Apple Specialists throughout the U.S. 

Other than Apple journalism, I've penned news, features, sports, movie reviews, opinion columns and editorials for nine weekly, two daily newspapers and a variety of national and regional publications.

Siri Wants to Transcribe Your Voicemails

People like leaving voicemail but don't like listening to them, so Apple is working on a new feature that lets Siri become your own personal transcription service. Apple hopes to roll out what's been dubbed at iCloud Voicemail in 2016, which means come next year you won't have to listen to your friend's messages ever again.

The Mac Observer Spin: I like to say three random words when leaving Google Voice messages, like "shoe, carrot, penguin." Google Voice is horrible at transcribing that. I can't wait to try it on iCloud Voicemail.

Windows 10: Changing the Apple vs. Microsoft Dynamic


What I find most interesting about Windows 10 is that if Apple wanted to knock Microsoft off the desktop, then it -- not Microsoft -- should have released a product like this. When I say "like this," I mean one that could transform a smartphone into a PC. My reasoning is that Microsoft is relatively weak in smartphones, and Apple currently is kicking Google all over the market. Given Google's power, that's pretty impressive -- of course, it is also largely Google's own fault. Granted, Apple would have to lead with iOS, not OS X.

Hands-on with Maps in El Capitan: Public...

If you want to use your Mac to find your local bus or train schedule, El Capitan can help. The Maps app Apple includes with El Capitan includes transit directions for major cities, just like iOS 9. Maps came to OS X with the release of Mavericks in 2013. At the time and since then, Apple hasn’t had public transportation directions available in the Maps app, either for Mac or for iOS.

In fact, public transportation maps have been gone since Apple extricated itself from Google’s data in 2012, when Apple released iOS 6. That’s led third-party app developers on iOS to fill in the gaps, but there are fewer resources for Mac users, who often resort to Google and other sources to find out how to get from point A to point B using buses and trains.

Supplier woes suggest Apple Watch sales aren't...

How well is the Apple Watch selling? Apple isn’t saying much, but that hasn’t kept Bernstein Research anaylist Mark Li from trying to find out. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, a subsidiary of Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) and one of Apple’s suppliers for the Watch told investors that it fell short of a “break-even” number of shipments of its Apple Watch components during the second quarter, and it expects to fall short again in the third quarter. According to Li, it’s very rare for a company to fall short of “break-even” shipments in the third quarter, given the looming holiday rush, and Li says that ASE’s shortfall indicates that Apple Watch sales are lower than expected.

Four sets of the six dots that signify characters in the Braille system raise and lower as quickly as 100 times per second to denote four characters simultaneously, though users may opt to slow the watch down to a single character per second.

Pixelmator is one of the best Photoshop alternatives available on the Mac App Store. I’ve been using it for quite some time now, but mostly just using a trackpad or mouse to manipulate layers, access tools and edit functions. There are tons of keyboard shortcuts. And if I had the time or patience to learn them all, I would have. Needless to say, I didn’t. So when I got the chance to check out EditorsKeys keyboard specifically designed for Pixelmator, I jumped at it.

As expected, Apple Watch launched today in three new countries. Starting today, Apple’s wearable is available in Turkey, Russia, and New Zealand. This expansion comes after a launch in seven new countries earlier this month. Apple CEO Tim Cook was in Istanbul, Turkey to celebrate the launch and took to his Twitter account to share his experience.

Cook tweeted that the company saw a great turnout for the launch of Apple Watch in Turkey and shared an image of an Apple Store worker helping a customer try-on the device.

Report: Apple and BMW started talking about an iCar...

The Apple Car is taking another lap on the rumor circuit, with a new report from Reuters that Apple execs visited BMW last year to find out more about how BMW makes the (very cool) i3 electric car.

“Apple executives were impressed with the fact that we abandoned traditional approaches to car making and started afresh. It chimed with the way they do things too,” an unnamed source at BMW told Reuters. 

According to the report, Tim Cook visited BMW’s headquarters in 2014 and asked the carmaker’s board members very detailed questions about production of its i3 electric vehicles, which BMW manufactures using lightweight carbon fiber. BMW execs were willing to provide the parts for the Apple Car, according to Reuters.

In defense of pessimism

Brett Terpstra:

My point is, optimism is not the shining light of the enlightened human being. I’m tired of reading “inspirational” quotes on Facebook about how optimism is a goal we should all strive toward. Optimism and pessimism are not light and dark sides, they’re complementing halves of the same token. We need each other, you and I.

Apple supplier not hitting its ‘break-even’ mark of...

Specific sales of Apple Watch have been a mystery since the device’s launch back in April, with several analysts offering up their own respective estimates on numbers. Now, Taiwan’s Advanced Semiconductor Engineering Inc. has hinted at sales of the device. ASE, for those unfamiliar, is responsible for putting all of the internal parts of Apple Watch into a case through a process known as system-in-package (via WSJ). The company, however, claims that Apple Watch sales are not as high as expected…

Mark Li, a Bernstein Research analyst, said recently that an ASE subsidiary told investors that the company did not hit its “break-even volume” of two million Apple Watch units per month in the second quarter of 2015....

Angry Birds 2: Freemium Clips Its Wings


Angry Birds 2 -- the 13th installment of Angry Birds and the original game's first proper sequel -- on Thursday became available for iOS and Android. The free-to-play model is a call to players beyond its base. However, those new players may slip through developer Rovio's fingers if the game's features fail to motivate them to play with real money. Though there are 12 titles separating the first game from Angry Birds 2, Rovio revisited every element of the core game except for the iconic slingshot.

Late last year, at the Çingleton 2014 conference, Adam and Tonya gave a talk entitled “Through the Lens of a Boutique Publisher.” It’s a 35-minute tour through the past, present, and future of TidBITS and Take Control, with lots of personal anecdotes and photos mixed in as they talk about what it’s like to be a publisher. Çingleton may be no more, but you can at least see what the last one was like (other talks are linked at the top of the Vimeo page). Highly recommended.

User experience company Nielsen Norman Group has posted an article pointing out problems with four official iOS interface patterns: page control dots, form submission links at the top, the plus icon, and the move icon. The authors aren’t speaking theoretically — these design patterns fail in actual usability testing — and they both give specific examples of each criticism and offer alternative approaches. In other words, if you’ve had trouble with an app that uses these interface controls, it’s not just you.

Beard characterized the lack of choice in the Windows 10 experience as "very disturbing." It appears to have been designed to force users into an experience Microsoft wants them to have instead of one they want, he charged. Users who upgrade to Microsoft's Windows 10 using the express setup will have the new Edge browser set as their default.
