External Link: Hulu Now Offering an Ad-Free Option

Tired of the repetitive commercials on Hulu Plus? The good news is that the streaming TV service is now offering a commercial free version for $11.99 per month, with the ad-laden version still available at $7.99 per month. However, some shows, like ABC’s “Agents of SHIELD” will still feature ads.

Tip of the Day: See when messages were received on...

Due to the limited screen space, the Apple Watch adds timestamps to your messaging conversations far less frequently, so it may not be clear just by glancing when a given message was actually sent or received. Fortunately there’s an easy way to check this out, and it works the same way as it does on your iPhone. When viewing the message list, pull any conversation bubble to the right and you’ll see the timestamps displayed beside each…

Schusser added that an Android app and Sonos support are coming this fall.

Pre-event Apple rumor roundup: A song of iPhones,...

Apple’s September 9 product event is still several days away, but the ebb and flow of the great Rumor River has brought us many tidings ahead of time. Nothing is ever certain until Apple announces it, but when you get this close to a product reveal, the leaks get more accurate and it gets easier to separate truth from fiction.

The current scuttlebutt is that this event will revolve around three product lines. A routine iPhone bump and a more powerful Apple TV with better software and an App Store are supposedly sure things. That fabled “iPad Pro” could make an appearance, too, but it’s apparently still up in the air. And don’t get your hopes up about new Macs—despite Intel’s new Skylake processors, rumors say we won’t be getting refreshes just yet.

Latest Apple TV rumor suggests skimpier storage,...

The next Apple TV might not have a lot of room for apps and games if a new report by 9to5Mac proves accurate.

The site, which tends to have a strong record with Apple rumors, claims that Apple’s next set-top box won’t exceed 16GB of storage. Apple may include 16GB in the base model, reportedly priced at $149, or it could charge $199 version for the 16GB version while putting just 8GB in the base model.

In any case, the latest report appears to contradict earlier rumors from both 9to5Mac and BuzzFeed. Last month, 9to5Mac said it...

Recent patent shows Apple’s exploration into fuel...

This could lead to some extremely cool stuff.

A patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Thursday shows that Apple is looking into using hydrogen fuel cell technology to power its portable devices.

Text and diagrams depict not only a fuel cell stack for generating power, but related aspects like connections with the portable device and a cartridge system for adding fuel.

The diagrams make reference to a MagSafe connector, implying that technology would be oriented towards MacBooks, and claim that a device could run for “days or even weeks” without refueling.

The report ties in with a recent...

Second, support for IFTTT recipes to automatically trigger other actions based on Tado detecting people arriving or leaving the home.

For homes that already have different heating devices in different rooms, such as underfloor heating, adding a second thermostat is all you need for the multi-room control. Most of us, though, will need a new smart radiator valve that won’t be available until next fall.

Spigen’s new iPhone 6s cases are perfect day 1...

Most iPhone owners use cases. They’re the easiest way to keep your device looking and feeling new, even if you accidentally drop your iPhone, or keep it in a pocket or bag with other items. But when Apple releases new iPhones, it can be hard to find a case on day one (or even week one) that’s guaranteed to fit, especially if Apple makes subtle changes to the iPhone’s body.

That’s why Spigen’s new lineup of iPhone 6s cases is so appealing. Each of the 5 designs has been custom-molded with the little bit of extra space Apple’s slightly thicker iPhone 6s will need, so you can have protection ready as soon as your iPhone arrives. Starting at under $11 and topping out at $28, they’re also surprisingly slim and super-affordable, with a lot of cool color and texture options. Our top pick? The impressively slim, brand new design...

A report from the usually-reliable KGI has repeated many of the details from our exclusives on the iPhone 6S, but additionally offered support for an earlier rumor that the front camera will be upgraded to 5MP. Surprisingly, it also suggests that the rear camera lens may not be sapphire, as it has apparently failed drop tests.

Aside from upgrading rear camera module to 12MP, Apple will upgrade front camera module to 5MP […] The new iPhone may not be equipped with sapphire cover lens, as it still has quality issues on the drop test.

Although sapphire is much more scratch-resistant than Gorilla Glass, it is more brittle, and thus at greater risk of shattering when dropped.

While iPhone users may consider the devices pretty self-explanatory, and wonder why such interactive displays might be needed, the patent text does give one clue. The description specifically references Bluetooth devices as a potential application of the technology.

KeyRaider Malware Busts iPhone Jailbreakers

The firm identified the malware in cooperation with WeipTech, which found the accounts on a server while it was analyzing suspicious user-reported iOS tweaks.

When the emails came to light, the 64,000 employees affected successfully argued that this had limited their earning potential.

"Extremely Critical" OS X Keychain...

Mark Wilson writes: Two security researchers have discovered a serious vulnerability in OS X that could allow an attacker to steal passwords and other credentials in an almost invisible way. Antoine Vincent Jebara and Raja Rahbani — two of the team behind the myki identity management security software — found that a series of terminal commands can be used to extract a range of stored credentials. What is particularly worrying about the vulnerability is that it requires virtually no interaction from the victim; simulated mouse clicks can be used to click on hidden buttons to grant permission to access the keychain. Apple has been informed of the issue, but a fix is yet to be issued. The attack, known as brokenchain, is disturbingly easy to execute. Ars reports that this weakness has been exploited for four years.

On Tuesday, Ars chronicled an OS X technique that's being actively used by an underhanded piece of adware to access people's Mac keychain without permission. Now there's evidence the underlying weakness has been exploited for four years.

As documented by Twitter user @noarfromspace, the keychain-penetrating technique was carried out in 2011 by a piece of malware known as DevilRobber. The then new threat caught the attention of security researchers because it commandeered a Mac's graphics card and CPU to perform the mathematical calculations necessary to mine Bitcoins, something that was novel at the time. Less obvious was the DevilRobber's use of the...

Despite new capabilities and the presence of 4K video recording in the new iPhones, sources say that the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus will retain the same storage tiers as the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB. On-contract pricing will also be the same as the 2014 models: $199, $299, and $399 for the iPhone 6S, versus $299, $399, and $499 for the iPhone 6S Plus. We previously posted images of pre-production next-generation iPhone components that indicated that the 16GB option could remain.

If you haven't yet supported the site, here's the link to make your pledge.

Friends with Benefits

Many of the new patrons are joining our secret Slack channel, where they can chat with the team and other AWT supporters. It's a benefit that we're happy to extend to the people who are making this all possible. You can give us tips, post ideas, and even correct our spelling! What other Apple website lets you peek into the newsroom and suggest what we're going to write about? 

And here's a big announcement: during the September 9 Apple...

The fourth-generation Apple TV, set to be unveiled at an event on September 9th and released in October, will feature a mix of new and familiar hardware, according to reliable sources. While the new device will sport a much faster processor than the current Apple TV, a color-matched remote control, and a somewhat larger body, it will lack support for 4K video streaming and have the same basic ports as the third-generation model…

Adonit’s Jot Dash: The Workhorse Stylus You’ve Been...

We've come a long way since Steve Jobs told us we already have ten styluses on our hands thanks to the creative efforts of many companies. Over time, iPad and iPhone styluses have become more complex, gained pressure sensitivity, and trimmed down the size of their tips. Adonit's latest addition to the stylus world is the Jot Dash and instead of moving us forward by adding in new features, it takes us a step in the right direction by taking some away.

Podcast 472: There's a new smartwatch in town

The event is official, and we are officially stoked. This week's news is all about what Apple is getting ready to reveal: a new iPhone or two, the new Apple TV, and release dates for the new OSes. We've been enjoying the new proactive features in iOS 9 that predict which apps you'll want to use at which times and places, and that's one reason we like Nuzzel, a service that predicts what you'll want to read based on what your friends are sharing. Glenn has an interview with Jonathan Abrams, the CEO, about designing a social news app for every device.

Our final discussion is about Android Wear on iOS. Susie's testing it out, and while it can't hold a candle to the deep, OS-wide integration of the Apple Watch, Android Wear on iOS does a few things right. On-device curation of notifications is huge, and knowing when your watch will be fully charged is a nice touch too. Here's hoping Apple takes a little inspiration from Android Wear's more mature platform for future watchOS...

Apple TV report claims universal search, $149...

Universal search could be a key feature in the next-generation Apple TV, but users will have to pay a premium price to get it.

Citing unnamed sources, BuzzFeed reports that the new Apple TV will start at $149. An earlier report by 9to5Mac claimed that Apple could charge $149 to $199, so perhaps an option for more storage will be available. Either way, the new media streamer will cost quite a bit more than the competing Roku 3 and Amazon Fire TV (both $100), and the current $69 Apple TV.

The mystery job that pulled Ian Rogers away from running Apple Music isn't a secret any more. Now he's heading up LVMH's efforts to to create a better Internet presence for its brands. That puts Mr. Rogers very much outside of the music industry because LVMH oversees luxury product brands.

Imgur has today announced a new update to its iOS app that brings a handful of changes that have been highly requested by users. Earlier this year, the app was updated with the ability to quickly and easily upload images on the go and was also relaunched on Android with an entirely new interface. Today’s update bumps the app to version 2.4 and builds upon the features introduced earlier this year.

First off, Imgur says that the update includes a new grid view interface with large thumbnails and details about images such as headlines and votes. The update also introduces the ability to search for content. Imgur explained that both of these features were highly requested by users of its app.

In addition to those user-requested features, today’s update also improves the notification functionality of the app. You can now receive push...

How iTunes Movie DRM-Removal Software Keeps Me Honest

I like to watch a lot of movies on a lot of different devices. Some of those devices are made by Apple, like my iPad and Apple TV, while some are made by TiVo, Roku, Panasonic, Sony and others. I need my media portable; not just portable in the mobile sense to take with me when I travel, but portable in the sense that I can't have limits on which of my devices will play any given movie. There's a way to do that with iTunes Movies, just be responsible when you do.

An estimated 225,000 Apple accounts, most of which are in China, have been compromised by malware installed on jailbroken iPhones.

With Skylake here, I expect new iMacs next month (...

Intel has officially introduced the sixth generation Intel Core processor family, often referred to as Skylake. The processors will certainly appear in new iMacs, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs and 12-inch MacBooks. The question is "when?"

The 12-inch MacBook launched in April. The 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air were revved in March, and the 15-inch MacBook Pro was updated in May. So I'm predicting no new Mac laptops until early 2016. (However, I'd love to be proven wrong.)

However, the iMac was last updated in October 2014, so I'm expecting a refresh of the all-in-one late this month or next. Most likely we'll see a 21-inch iMac with a 4K display. As for the 27-inch 5K beast, it's likely to be revved with Skylake processors and, if KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo is correct, even better screens with an LED phosphor material called KSF that will boost color saturation.

Rumors first surfaced at the end of last year, with an apparently Photoshopped image very reminiscent of the MBA design. Xiaomi at the time denied that the image was its work, and said that it was actually a clone known as the Kaka i5. But...

Considering the 12-inch MacBook as a laptop for...

I’ve been using the 12-inch MacBook with Retina display since its debut. Is it a good laptop for students? Yes — but only if the student, or the person buying it for him/her, is willing to pay top dollar for its incredible svelteness and gorgeous screen, while overlooking its shortcomings. 

The entry level, 13-inch MacBook with Retina display offers more oomph for the same price, while you can save money with either model ($899 or $1,099) of the MacBook Air or the non-Retina display MacBook Pro. 

That said, here's no denying the Retina display is gorgeous and the small design of the MacBook is an incredible feat of engineering. The laptop's display (with a 16:10 aspect ratio) is stunning and pops with clarity. The MacBook's physical resolution is 2304 by 1440 pixels. This means that, at standard “...

The sixth-gen iPod touch excels on all levels

Both of my kids are addicted to social media and, by proxy, the devices made of aluminum and glass that provide access to them.

For the past several months, my youngest daughter has complained of a very sluggish third-generation iPod touch. It was certainly getting long in the tooth; she couldn't even install the latest version of iOS. The meager 8GB of storage meant she had to continually uninstall and reinstall apps in the hopes of freeing up enough space.

Feeling her pain, I agreed to purchase her one of the new sixth-generation iPod touch devices from Apple. While some question the validity and purpose of a new, uber-fast iPod in 2015 (when so many people have opted for a smartphone), my daughter couldn't be happier. Apps that previously would crash or exhibit extreme sluggishness now load and execute in record time.

I'll spare you the hardware spec details of the latest touch, but suffice it to...

Another reason why Apple might want to enter the...

Earlier this week I commented on the rumors that Apple might product original video content. Here's another reason why our favorite tech company might want to do just that: the online digital video market is growing rapidly. As the accompanying chart, based on data from Statista’s Digital Market Outlook, illustrates, the growth potential in online video is much bigger than it is in digital music. 

Annual revenues from video streaming and downloads are expected to grow by more than US$6 billion between 2014 and 2020 – almost four times the expected growth of the digital music market. Considering that subscription-based streaming is the primary growth driver in the online video market, it would make sense for Apple to get into the game before Netflix, Amazon and Hulu can run away with the market.

Sketchy report: Apple may plan a return to glass-on-...

Digitimes report, which seems to be drawing a lot of conclusions from minimal information, suggests that Apple may be planning a return to glass-on-glass touchscreens for next year’s iPhones. Apple used so-called G/G technology for its early iPhones, switching to in-cell tech for the iPhone 5 onward.

The short piece suggests that the move is mostly motivated by supply constraints for higher-resolution in-cell displays, but also suggests that the rumored plan could be geared towards bezel-free displays. Glass suppliers Corning and Asahi are said to have sent samples to Apple.

G/G touch panels may also help Apple develop bezel-free smartphones as in-cell touch panels reportedly are struggling with touch sensitivity on the edges.

The reasoning...

Apple showed interest in signing up former ESPN star Bill Simmons to an exclusive audio podcast deal. Apple media boss Eddy Cue discussed the idea a couple of times with Simmons this summer, say people familiar with the talks, who say that they were preliminary at best.

Simmons ended up signing with HBO, the deal including a new podcast from October – which is...

The Apple Watch could be debuting in Austria, Denmark, India and other countries later this month.

A rumor from Austrian website MacMania claims that the Apple Watch will be available in Austria starting September 15th, citing information it received from a reputable source working for an undisclosed large electronics chain in the country. As yet, Apple does not have an official retail presence in Austria.

Danske Bank, the largest bank in Denmark, also recently issued a press release stating that its MobilePay service will support the Apple Watch when the device launches in Denmark next month, but the bank has since backtracked and now cites “rumors” about a September launch.

The bank itself has a...
