Smartphone size preference size remains stable at 5-...

In the first half of 2016, US and UK smartphone users were most likely to be interested in purchasing a device with a 5.3-inch or 5.0-inch display, according to a new report from Strategy Analytics.

The study also found that males showed a preference for larger devices than females, while Android owners still preferred larger devices than Apple owners. As in 2015, current smartphone owners are also more likely to prefer a thicker prototype with a longer battery life over a thinner phone.

Smartphone size preference remained stable in the first half of 2016, within the range of 5 to 5 inches. However, this was slightly smaller than in the first half of 2015, as the 5.3-inch smartphone was previously most preferred. 

As in 2015, almost half...

Notable apps and app updates for March 23, 2017

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.

iOS Apps/Updates

Scheming Cat Software has introduced Planet Flip 1.0. The $1.99 game features more than 80 levels with over 170 planet locations to solve. Players are challenged to guide Bob back to his spaceship. However each level is split across two planets, and they can only teleport him to the same position on the "opposite" planet. So they'll need to carefully plan his route, flipping back-and-forth between planets as they go.

macOS Apps/Updates

MacXDVD has released MacX DVD Ripper Pro 5.5, an upgrade to its flagship DVD ripper. The update extends the tool’s reach to...

A slogan that has been attributed to Apple products for years is “It just works.” Why isn’t that the case with sending secure emails in iOS Mail? Jeff Butts is frustrated by this, and makes his argument that Apple should fix this long-standing problem once and for all.

OpenSuse Leap Reinforces Linux Faith


OpenSuse Leap 42.2 goes a long way toward maintaining Suse's reputation for reliability and stability. That said, new users might need a push to take the leap from their familiar distros to this latest OpenSuse release. Business users can remain confident that upgrading to the latest edition won't put them too close to the bleeding edge of innovation. There is little cause for worry that upgrading might break their current applications and configurations. Leap 42.2 is a safe way to avoid the pitfalls of upgrading too quickly.

Join us Monday night for AWT TV

Starting on Monday night, March 27 at 6:30 PM PT/9:30 PM ET, we'll be going live with our newest effort -- AWT TV. For those of you who may remember the old TUAW TV Live show that I hosted for five years or so, this will be similar in format...except without Doc Rock (at least for the first show!). Remember the theme music in the intro? It's back for the new show!

Each show will be up to an hour long and feature the AWT staff (Dennis Sellers, Marty Edwards and myself), along with any guests we've invited to join us on a video call. We'll discuss the Apple or tech news of the week, any good rumors we've heard, and even show off new accessories and apps -- all on AWT TV on YouTube Live.

If you join us on YouTube Live, there will be a Live Chat as well! We'll remind you again on Monday, but make your plans now to watch AWT TV!

WikiLeaks today dumped a smaller subset of documents from its "Vault 7" collection of files from a CIA software developer server. Yet again, these documents are more important from the perspective of WikiLeaks having them than for showing any revelatory content. The exploits detailed in these new files are for vulnerabilities that have largely been independently discovered and patched in the past. The files also reveal that the CIA likely built one of these tools after...

Review: ExoLens PRO with Optics by ZEISS Wide-Angle...

The iPhone's camera has been steadily improving with every new model released, and many now consider it to be among the best smartphone cameras on the market; in fact the iPhone has entirely replaced our traditional point-and-shoot cameras in recent years. However, like many photography enthusiasts we have to admit that the fixed lens can sometimes be a limiting factor — even with the new iPhone 7 Plus dual lens system — resulting in a market for a range of external lens solutions to help take iPhone photography to the next level. The latest new entry onto the iPhone lens scene is ExoLens' new ExoLens PRO with Optics by ZEISS Wide-Angle Kit, built on a partnership with the venerable German lens maker to bring its extremely high-quality glass to bear in the world of iPhone photography. {/exp:char_limit}

WikiLeaks has released more Vault 7 documentation online, including details about several CIA projects to infect Apple's Mac computer firmware and operating system. The site unloaded its first batch of stolen Vault 7 data earlier this month. The CIA's Embedded Development Branch developed malware that could persist even if the targeted computer were reformatted and its OS were reinstalled, according to data WikiLeaks exposed. The newly released files shone a spotlight on the CIA's efforts to gain "persistence" in Apple devices.

Facebook makes Messenger more like iMessage with...

Facebook has incorporated new features into its Messenger app, and they may seem familiar to iMessage users.

Facebook Messenger now lets users add emoji reactions to individual messages, just how Facebook users can “react” to posts in their News Feeds. Facebook is also giving users the ability to include @mentions in their messages. Both of these new features will begin rolling out on Thursday and will be available globally in the coming days, according to Facebook.

You can add an emoji reaction to any message, whether it’s a text comment, a photo, or GIF. These emoji reactions include five different emotions—from love to wow to angry—as depicted by smiley faces, plus Facebook’s signature thumbs up to signify a “Like.” For the first time, Facebook is also giving users the option to “dislike” something with a thumbs down emoji.

The U.S. Senate has voted to kill broadband provider privacy regulations prohibiting them from selling customers' web-browsing histories and other data without their permission.

The Senate's 50-48 vote Thursday on a resolution of disapproval would roll back Federal Communications Commission rules requiring broadband providers to receive opt-in customer permission to share sensitive personal information, including web-browsing history, geolocation, and financial details with third parties. The FCC approved the regulations just five months ago.

Newly leaked documents show low-level CIA Mac and...

The CIA has had tools to infect Macs by connecting malicious Thunderbolt ethernet adapters to them since 2012, according to new documents purported to be from the agency and published by WikiLeaks.

One of the documents, dated Nov. 29, 2012, is a manual from the CIA’s Information Operations Center on the use of a technology codenamed Sonic Screwdriver. It is described as “a mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting.”

Sonic Screwdriver allows the CIA to modify the firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-ethernet adapter so that it forces a MacBook to boot from an USB stick or DVD disc even when its boot options are password protected.

WikiLeaks' New Dump Shows How The CIA Allegedly...

WikiLeaks said on Thursday morning it will release new documents it claims are from the Central Intelligence Agency which show the CIA had the capability to bug iPhones and Macs even if their operating systems have been deleted and replaced. From a report on Motherboard: "These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain 'persistenc'' on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware," WikiLeaks stated in a press release. EFI and UEFI is the core firmware for Macs, the Mac equivalent to the Bios for PCs. By targeting the UEFI, hackers can compromise Macs and the infection persists even after the operating system is re-installed. The documents are mostly from last decade, except a couple that are dated 2012 and 2013. While the documents are somewhat dated at this point, they show how the CIA was perhaps ahead of the curve in finding new ways to hacking and compromising Macs, according to Pedro Vilaca, a security...

Siri is an AI with a lot of talents, and it teamed up with Roman, a 4-year-old boy in the UK, to help him get help for his mother. While kids in the UK are taught to dial 999 to summon emergency services, Roman used a different method to call: he unlocked his mother's iPhone by pressing her thumb to her iPhone's Touch ID home button, then asked Siri for help. Here's a recording of the complete conversation between Roman and an emergency services operator:

Thanks to Roman knowing how to unlock his mother's iPhone, ask Siri to call for help, and then providing his home address to the police operator, officers and paramedics were able to show up, force entry into the house, and help Roman's mom regain consciousness before taking her to the hospital.

A spring iPad event this year has so far been taken almost as established fact. Apple has held one annually in recent years, and we’ve heard multiple reports about what to expect this year – one of them even suggesting a specific date.

The flagship product expected to be announced at the event was a new 10.5-inch iPad with a micro-bezel design that would allow it to have the same external dimensions as the current 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

But recent events suggest to me that, while the 10.5-inch iPad is probably real, it’s unlikely it will be announced at a spring event. Instead, it’s more likely to be at WWDC – or even later …

Overall satisfaction with smartphones is 49 points higher among customers with voice-activated home assistants such as Amazon Echo (881 vs. 832 on a 1,000-point scale) than those without such a device.

The new alerts, flagged with help from independent fact-checkers, are designed to prevent users from sharing fake news stories unwittingly, but they will not prevent people from sharing the story if they still choose.

When you try to share a story that has been flagged as phony, Facebook will insert an alert at the bottom of the post creation window (pictured at top). The alert will include a red triangle with an exclamation point, and a message such as “Disputed by Snopes.com and Associated Press.”

Federico Viticci, MacStories:

At this stage, it’s not clear what Apple’s plans for Workflow in the long term might be. I have a few theories, but this isn’t the time to speculate.

Apple patent describes iPhone or iPad docking into...

As perhaps further evidence of Apple exploring ways to make its entry-level products more affordable, a patent published today describes using an iPhone as the brains of a MacBook-style dumb terminal. As usual with patents, the language is dense, but the illustrations make clear the concept.

An electronic accessory device, comprising: an operational component that provides an output to a user; a housing carrying the operational component, the housing having a recess; and a control interface coupled to the operational component and configured to receive a control signal from an electronic host...

iOS gets 2nd rev of Super Mario Run while Android...

Chance Miller, 9to5Mac:

Following its release on Android today, Nintendo has also updated Super Mario Run on iOS. The update adds a host of new features and bug fixes and brings the app to version 2.0. The update comes months after the app’s initial release.

Headlining the update are new playable characters. Nintendo says the update adds different color versions of Yoshi. If you play with a certain color of Yoshi during Toad Rally, you can unlock more toads of that color.

Additionally, the update makes more of the game available for free. Nintendo says that by completing one of Bowser’s challenges, you can unlock the previously locked courses 1-4 and battle with Bowser. Furthermore, Nintendo says that if you “clear course 1-4,” you’ll get new courses to play in Toad Rally.

If you love the game, there’s just more to love. Me, I find the interface a bit of a mess. Lots to love, lots of frustrating design to go along with it.

On a side note, Android...

Patent report: Apple accessory device could turn an...

I could go for this: Apple has filed for a patent (number 2017003048) dubbed “electronic accessory device” that would turn an iPhone or iPad into a full-fledged laptop. It involves systems and methods for “providing internal components for portable computing devices having a thin profile.”

More particularly, the present application describes an electronic accessory device available “to extend and expand usefulness of a portable computing device.” The accessory device — which has a niche into which an iOS device can be inserted — can have a form factor corresponding to a laptop, sporting data output resources such as a visual display and input resources. 

It can also include memory resources, which — if the invention ever materialized — would help overcome the storage options in iPhones and iPads. The accessory device would also offer additional functionality, such as a large display, enhanced audio capabilities, and input means such as a mouse, track pad and keyboard...

Late yesterday, Apple closed a deal to acquire Workflow, an app for iOS power users that lets you string a series of repetitive actions together to make them easier and quicker to accomplish. In many ways, the app accomplishes for iOS what the Automator app does for macOS. Late last year Apple laid off Sal Soghoian, the product manager in charge of automation-related products like Automator and AppleScript, and eliminated his position; the...

Apple will reportedly start assembling iPhones in India over next two months. The tech giant is said to be in talks with the Indian government for import-tax exemptions on components.

Getting a foothold in India has been a challenge for Apple. The company has opened its retail stores in a number of countries around the world, but not in India. The country has restrictive real estate investment laws for foreign companies.

What’s more, India’s Finance and Commerce Ministries rejected Apple’s request to sell used iPhones in the country. Also, India wants a commitment from the Cupertino, California-base company to bring manufacturing facilities to the country before the government will approve the company’s request to open its own retail stores.

Apple: there have been no breaches to iCloud or email

However, in a statement to Fortune, Apple said that there have not been any breaches to its systems and that its user data is safe.

“There have not been any breaches in any of Apple’s systems including iCloud and Apple ID,” the spokesperson said. “The alleged list of email addresses and passwords appears to have been obtained from previously compromised third-party services.”

Apple told Fortune that it will continue to “actively monitor” the situation and work with law enforcement to ensure that user data remains safe, adding: “Apple is actively...

Apple buys Workflow, an iOS automation tool

Apple is acquiring Workflow, an iOS tool that lets you hook together apps and functions within apps in strings of commands to automate tasks, according to TechCrunch. Terms of the deal haven't been announced but the team behind the app — Ari Weinstein, Conrad Kramer, Ayaka Nonaka and Nick Frey — are coming to work for the Cupertino, California-based company.

Workflow won an Apple Design Award in 2015. The app has been sold at the Apple App Store for $2.99; however, Apple is offering it for free.

Workflow allows you to automate items on your iPhone or iPad by connecting apps and actions. You can create complex workflows that you can start with a single tap. Workflow contains over 200 actions, including those...

Apple has acquired the Workflow automation app, which allows iOS users to trigger a sequence of tasks across apps with a single tap.

A spokesman for Apple confirmed on Wednesday the company’s acquisition of DeskConnect, the developer of the app, and the Workflow app, but did not provide further details.

Workflow, developed for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, allows users to drag and drop combinations of actions to create workflows that interact with the apps and content on the device. It won an Apple design award in 2015 at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference.

Some of the examples of tasks for which Workflow can be used are making animated GIFs, adding a home screen icon to call a loved one and tweeting a song the user has been listening to, according to a description of the app.

Albeit you’ll be able to snag the newly-announced 9.7-inch iPad on Friday, Apple has stated that customers who want to buy it in Apple Store and other retail locations will need to wait until “next week,” according to Apple.

Apple has provided a bit more information on the new iPad shopping situation. Orders placed on Friday, the first day of availability, will arrive the following week at some point, with no specific day given.

Other retailers, such as Target and Best Buy, have stated that they are expecting stock of the new 9.7-inch tablet around the beginning of April with orders starting on Friday, the same as the Apple online store.

Apple’s new iPad announced on Tuesday returns to the iPad Air’s thickness and includes a non-laminated Retina Display and larger battery than the iPad Air 2. An A9 processor drives the new unit, with 32GB of device storage — all available for $329 to start.

The travel ban now applies to some devices coming into the U.S. from some flights.

The Trump administration has banned devices larger than a smartphone in the passenger cabin of flights coming to the U.S. from several airports in Muslim-dominant countries. The ban restricts iPads and other tablets, Kindle ebook readers, notebooks, and other larger electronic devices to checked luggage over terrorism concerns.

The policy was announced earlier this week and covers direct flights to the U.S. from Cairo, Istanbul, Kuwait City, Doha, Casablanca, Amman, Riyadh, Jeddah, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi. Specific airlines includes in the ban include Royal Jordanian Airlines, Egypt Air, Turkish Airlines, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Kuwait Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Qatar Airways, Emirates, and Etihad Airways.

At present, the airlines have until Friday to comply with the electronics ban.

No specific terrorist threat has been cited by the Trump administration, although it’s been...

How to set permissions for items in macOS Sierra

You can set permissions for items on macOS Sierra if you wish. Permission settings determine who can view and alter files on the computer. You change permission settings at the bottom of the Info window for a file, folder, or disk in the Finder. 

(The Finder is the home base for your Mac. You use it to organize and access almost everything on your Mac, including documents, images, movies, and any other files you have.)

Okay, back to permissions. For example, you can change permission settings for a folder so that other users who log in to your Mac, or connect to it for file sharing, can view but not change files in a folder. To assign permissions to users and groups:

  • Select a disk, folder, or file, then choose File > Get Info.
  • If the information in Sharing & Permissions isn’t visible, click the disclosure triangle.
  • If necessary, click the lock iconto unlock it, then enter an administrator name and password.

It wasn't the money: Wozniak on robots, design...

More than 40 years after founding Apple Computer, Steve Wozniak has a lot to say about the early days of the world’s richest company—and about technology, learning, and being a born engineer.

On stage at the IEEE TechIgnite conference in Burlingame, California, on Wednesday, he gave a glimpse into how a tech legend thinks.

On open source

In the early 1970s, Wozniak read about phone phreaking, in which “phreakers” made free phone calls by using electronics to mimic the tones used for dialing each number. To learn how to do it, he went to the only place he knew that had books and magazines about computers: The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. He went on a Sunday and walked right in. “The smartest people in the world don’t lock doors,” Wozniak said.

Digital Anarchy's Flicker Free plug-in a useful...

By Aaron Lee

Digital Anarchy's $149 Flicker Free plug-in for Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Apple's Final Cut Pro X gives video editors and visual effects artists a useful tool that fixes a wide range of footage affected with flicker or strobing. 

It analyzes on-the-fly, renders quickly, and easily produces flicker free footage. There are presets for different types of flicker, allowing it to fit into a variety of workflows.

Flicker is a problem that affects several types of video footage. Time lapse suffers from variation in exposures. Archival footage flickers because of old cameras or lights. Slow motion or high speed video can be affected by the flickering of electric lights. LED lights, TVs, and computer monitors cause flickering when out of sync with the camera.

Flicker Free deflickers all these types of footage and more. It analyzes the...
