Notable apps and app updates for October 10, 2015

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 for iOS and Mac OS X:

iOS Apps and App Updates

Sure it's Saturday, but that doesn't mean that the little ones have to stop learning. Endless Alphabet ($6.99) is a fun app to teach those 5 years old or younger their alphabet and also build vocabulary. The game has been updated for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, now providing 3D Touch support -- the level of touch pressure applied to letters and words makes them respond differently.

Yet another leak has shown up of the rumored HTC One ‘Aero’, also known as the One A9. Although it’s shown up a few times in the past, never has it been clearer as to where the design influences have come from. HTC is expected to officially unveil the smartphone during a virtual event on October 20. Today’s leak comes via Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks) and shows the extent to which HTC has gone to be ‘inspired’ by the iPhone 6/6s..

Review: Macphun’s Creative Kit 2016 makes boring...

Great photographers are made, not born, and even the best photographers have plenty of unimpressive shots in their collections. But in the age of digital photography, it’s possible to create a great photograph without being a great photographer. You can even accomplish this days after snapping your photo, so long as you have the right post-processing software and a little time to play around.

Macphun’s Creative Kit 2016 ($90) provides photographers of all skill levels with six different tools that make bland or imperfect photos look great. This year’s Creative Kit includes the Pro versions of Macphun’s Focus, FX Photo Studio, Intensify...

Right after Google unveiled the first tablet it created entirely in-house, Microsoft has gone them one better. Its Surface Book is a high-end laptop that falls in line with the Surface ethos. It's a convertible that works in tablet format, but its keyboard appears vastly superior to the ones available for other Surface devices. With a 13.5-inch display, sixth-generation Intel processor, up to 16 GB of RAM, and a battery that lasts up to 12 hours, according to Microsoft, the Surface Book seems to pack the goods.

User Info Safe After LoopPay Attack, Says Samsung

Samsung has assured users that their information is safe following a computer intrusion of a key company linked to its mobile payment system. The intrusion of LoopPay by a gang of hackers known as the Codoso or Sunshock Group may have occurred as early as March. Samsung purchased LoopPay for $250 million in February. Its technology -- which the company's newly launched mobile payment system, Samsung Pay, uses -- allows mobile phones to perform payment card transactions with older POS terminals that recognize only cards with magnetic strips.

New iPhones use LTE on any American carrier, despite...

The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus each come in two models that work on global LTE networks; a third set caters to China’s unique network demands. Some confusion resulted from Apple’s update to its LTE compatibility page, which seemed to imply that the model for AT&T’s network wouldn’t work over LTE on Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint’s networks. But that’s not the case, as Apple confirmed for Macworld.

Buy any non-Chinese model, and it will work over LTE (and regular networks) on any American carrier. There’s just one small difference with AT&T involving additional frequencies it has a long-term plan to deploy fully.

The confusion arises in part because the explanation and split among supported networks is somewhat different with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. With the 2014 phones, the model oriented toward AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon lacked some bands primarily used elsewhere in the world. That’s been resolved in the 6s/6s Plus, and Apple could be clearer about...

Google first introduced app indexing for iOS apps in search back in May, allowing in-app content to appear in search results with links that send users directly to an app. The feature was originally only available in the Google app and Chrome browser, but now Google is launching an updated version of the framework that will make the app links also appear in Google search results in Safari.

Getting your app content found on Google just got easier. App Indexing is now compatible with HTTP deep link standards for iOS 9, as it has been on Android from the beginning. That means that you can start getting your app content into the Search results page on Safari in iOS, simply by adding Universal...

Amazon Casts Its Net on the Internet of Things

Amazon on Thursday leapt into the Internet of Things market with the announcement of its AWS IoT platform. AWS IoT lets devices -- ranging from cars and turbines to sensor grids and light bulbs -- connect to services from Amazon Web Services. That in turn allows companies to store, process, analyze and act on the mountains of data generated by connected devices. "Amazon certainly doesn't want to miss its share of the IoT opportunity," said Dan Shey, a practice director at ABI Research.

External Link: Apple Says iPhone 6s Battery Life...

It turns out that Apple has two suppliers for the A9 chip that powers the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus — Samsung and TSMC — and the chipmakers rely on different process technologies. Some benchmarks have shown that iPhones using the TSMC A9 chip are more efficient than Samsung’s A9 chip, resulting in longer battery life. Apple has now weighed in on the controversy, telling TechCrunch that the difference in real-world use is just 2–3 percent, nothing that anyone would notice in actual usage and well within the tolerances that Apple would accept for any device.

The alluring Art Deco parkway that winds through...

Atlas Obscura:

The Merritt Parkway is a four-lane highway, with a large and wooded median in between. The lanes are narrow, there are no streetlights, and it’s completely surrounded by forest. The on-ramps are almost nonexistent, meaning that getting onto the road can be a bit like the initial descent of a roller coaster. The best part, however, is that no trucks are allowed–it’s a zippy car haven. And the cars do go fast.

I used to live in Westport and Danbury CT and, even though it added quite a bit of time to the trip, I always tried to take the Merrit Parkway. When the traffic was light, it was a high speed run into New York City. In the fall, it was one of the prettiest roads I have even been on. If you’re ever in the New York city area and have a car and a few hours to kill, drive the Merrit.

PSA: Apple’s iPhone 6s CDMA spec change makes AT...

When Apple introduced the iPhone 6s at its September 9th special event, it billed the new model as the “best phone for traveling around the world,” thanks largely to support for “23 bands of LTE wireless networking.” But that day, the new iPhone’s tech specs page told a more complex story: Apple advertised a seemingly U.S. and Puerto Rico-specific A1633 iPhone 6s with 23 LTE bands (including AT&T’s exclusive band 30) but no CDMA support, while Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and every international carrier outside China got an A1688 iPhone 6s with 22 LTE bands and CDMA support. Clearly, the “best phone for traveling around the world” would be the international A1688 version, right?

Wrong. This week, Apple started...

Apple removes several apps that could spy on...

(credit: PhotoAtelier)

Apple has purged its iOS App Store of several titles that it said had the ability to compromise encrypted connections between end users and the servers they connect to. The company advised users to uninstall the apps from their iPhones and iPads to prevent potentially harmful monitoring, but it has yet to name any of the offending titles.

"Apple has removed a few apps from the App Store that install root certificates that could allow monitoring of data," company officials wrote in an advisory posted Friday. "This monitoring could be used to compromise SSL/TLS security solutions. If you have one of these apps installed on your device, delete both the app and its associated configuration profile to make sure your data remains protected."

Changes to Apple’s published tech specs for various products are rare, but when they happen, they’re typically interesting — and under-the-radar. At some point following the September 9th announcement of the 2015 iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPad Pro and iPad mini 4, Apple quietly modified the tech specs and comparison pages for 2014’s iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPad Air 2 to bump them all from Bluetooth 4.0 to Bluetooth 4.2, the latest version of the increasingly popular wireless standard.

xsan4 initial installation

Forums: TroubleshootingTags: xsan4 10.10.5

Hi guys.
Explain please to me a few moments.
- There is a server from which you want to make the controller xsan. Established 10.10.5, I begin to set up xsan, but he is asking to set up a domain controller. It turns out that without setting up a domain controller, I can not adjust xsan?
- If the network I already have a domain controller, to configure xsan, I will need the controller xsan added as a replica to an existing domain? Or it is certainly possible as that set up xsan without domain controller?
- Do the control panel xsan, in version 2. Where it was possible to manage rights, mount and unmount volumes, and other settings?

Apple pulls the plug on in-app ad-blockers

Apple decided to allow ad-blocking in mobile Safari with iOS 9, but the company has no intention of allowing apps that install root certificates to block ads in other apps—no way, no how.

That means big changes for apps like Been Choice, which users could install to block ads in Safari as well as apps like Facebook, Pinterest, and Apple News. Apple pulled Been Choice and a few apps like it, because the method used for in-app ad-blocking installs root certificates that collect your website visits and deliver that information to the ad-blocker. Apple considers this a security violation. Safari ad-blocking apps can’t do that, which is why they haven’t been affected.

How the making of ‘The Good Dinosaur’ was different...


The environments in The Good Dinosaur are breathtaking. There are moments in the 30 minutes of the movie I previewed that look no different from live-action footage. And if it looks real, that might be because they used real data to create the locations in the film.

Some shots in the movie look out more than 50 miles in the distance. To accomplish this near-impossible task, the set team used actual USGS data of the northwest United States to create the sets in the film.

The amount of work that goes into any animated film today is mind-boggling but Pixar go so far beyond what anyone else does for the look of their films. As the story says, they wanted the environment to be another character in the story.

At long last, AT&T has activated Wi-Fi calling.

The carrier has apparently activated this feature, assorted customers having stated they were able to activate Wi-Fi calling on their iPhones.

Wi-Fi calling is a feature that lets calls be placed over a wireless connection when cellular connectivity is poor, functioning much like an AT&T M-Cell does now. It’s similar to Apple’s own FaceTime Audio feature, which also routes calls over a Wi-Fi connection.

The feature can be activated by going into Settings, then the Phone section, then toggling on the Wi-Fi calling feature. From there, there are a set of steps to walk...

Apple online store offers SIM-free iPhone 6s, 6s...

Apple's online store is now offering SIM-free iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models. Pricing for the former starts at US$649 ($32.45 with Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program). Pricing for the latter begins at $749 ($37.45 per month with the upgrade program.

"The SIM-free iPhone comes without a wireless contract commitment or carrier financing. It doesn’t come with a nano-SIM card for iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPhone 5s," says Apple. "And because it’s unlocked, it isn’t tied to one carrier, so you can get a nano-SIM from any supported carrier worldwide, such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, or Sprint in the United States."

Of course, the plan also means that you have to pay the full price for the Apple smartphone upfront. On the bright side, SIM-free iPhones work on a variety of networks including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile...

The units arrive without a commitment to a carrier or carrier financing. Apple has also noted that the device does not come with a nano-SIM, meaning that customers can go to a carrier of their choice and get a SIM, assuming the carrier supports the wireless bands the iPhone has. The entire cost of the iPhone must be...

iOS 9's "back to" button helps you...

Multitasking is all the rage these days. Certainly that’s the case on the iPad, where the recent release of iOS 9 has brought about split-screen multitasking for the first time to choruses of hallelujahs from users and quick revamps of well-established apps. No doubt it’s handy.

Nearly overlooked, though, is a powerful new feature in iOS 9 that makes operating multiple apps on your iPhone an easier, more fluid task than ever before. It’s the “back to” button, and it’ll make the phone’s power users wonder how they ever lived without it. It’s already changing the way I use and view content in my iPhone.

Apple Pay coming to Starbucks shops at long last

Apple just landed a major coup for Apple Pay: Starbucks is officially on board, and will start allowing you to pay for your lattes with just a tap of your iPhone or Apple Watch at all 7,500 stores by next year. The coffee chain will be piloting Apple Pay in select locations over the next few months, so keep an eye out to see if your corner Starbucks is one of them.

But that’s not all: You’ll also be able to pay for a bucket of fried chicken with Apple Pay when the payment service comes to KFC by next spring, Apple Pay Vice President Jennifer Bailey announced at Re/code’s Code/Mobile conference on Thursday.

Apple is downplaying reports that the iPhone 6s gets inferior battery life when its A9 processor is supplied by Samsung instead of TSMC.

Apple often sources its components from multiple suppliers, and in this case it’s relying on two manufacturers—Samsung and TSMC—to produce the A9 chip inside the iPhone 6s, as confirmed by Chipworks last month. Earlier this week, benchmark tests began popping up on Reddit and MacRumors showing significant battery life differences between the two sources.

Apple Approves, Then Removes In-App Ad Blocker

Mickeycaskill writes: Apple has pulled a number of applications from the App Store, most notably the "Been Choice" ad blocker, because of concerns the methods they employ to rid adverts could compromise sensitive user data. iOS 9 allows for the installation of applications that block adverts in Safari, but other apps like Been Choice go one step further and let users remove adverts from applications – including Apple News. Been Choice routes traffic through a VPN to filter out adverts in some applications, but it this technique has attracted the attention of Apple, which is concerned user data could be exposed. Apple says it is working with developers to get their apps back up and Been is refining its application for resubmission. In any case, Been says users must opt-in for in-app ad blocking and that no data is stored on its servers.

Elon Musk: “If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go...

If there's one CEO you can count on for consistently amusing outbursts and quotable sound bites, it's Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Today's EMOTD (Elon Musk of the Day) comes courtesy of German business newspaper Handelsblatt, where the outspoken CEO hopped aboard the banter bus and revealed that his cheeky employees often refer to Apple as the "Tesla Graveyard."

In response to claims that Apple is poaching key members of Tesla staff to work on its long-rumoured self-driving car project, Musk joked: "Important engineers? They have hired people we've fired. We always jokingly call Apple the Tesla Graveyard." But just to make sure that his comments weren't entirely dismissed as harmless CEO-style jostling, he added: "If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple. I’m not kidding."

Health accessories for iPhones, iPads, and iPods have become more numerous and diverse over the years, evolving from Apple’s early Nike+ run sensors to heart rate monitors, increasingly complex Wi-Fi scales with body fat and ambient room sensors, blood pressure cuff docks… and even Bluetooth toothbrushes. Some health accessories are undeniably useful, but others raise the question “why?” — why pay more to see my weight on an iPhone rather than the scale’s built-in screen? Why track daily tooth brushing, body fat percentages, or the humidity of one’s bathroom? People survived for thousands of years without charting every seemingly minor blip on their personal radars.

My perspective changed last month when my wife was diagnosed with a...

Mac sales slowest in two years, say researchers, but...

While research firms IDC and Gartner disagree on whether Mac sales are falling or rising, they do agree on two things: Q3 Mac sales were at their most sluggish for two years, but still well ahead of the rest of the PC industry.

Ahead of new retina 4K iMac and likley accessories launch next week, IDC estimated that Apple sold 5.3M Macs in Q3 2015, a year-on-year fall of 3.4%. Gartner instead estimated 5.6M sales, representing a 1.5% increase. Both firms did, however, agree on two pieces of good news for Apple … ...

Maybe Apple should bring multiple colors back to the...

Remember when the original iMac -- and, later, the iBook laptop -- came in a choice of colors? Could it be time for a return to those days?

The first iMac came only in bondi blue. Over time Apple offered choices in strawberry, blueberry, lime, grape, tangerine, graphite, ruby, snow, indigo, sage, Blue Dalmation and Flower Power. 

Perhaps Apple could offer an all-in-one desktop in the iPhone 6s flavors: gold, sliver, space gray and rose gold. Of course, the colors wouldn't have to be limited to the iMac. It could also apply to the Mac laptop line and the Mac mini (somehow I don't see the Mac Pro as being a candidate for flashy colors). 

The iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch get all the attention these day. It's time to bring a little fun back to the Mac.

Deskscribble lets you easily scribble on your Mac OS...

If you want to write and paint on your Mac's screen without doing any permanent damage, Deskscribble for Mac OS X (10.6.7 or later) is for you. It not only allows you to draw on top of your desktop and atop all open windows, it's also an easy-to-use whiteboard, blackboard and you can even use it for your own and your kids’ scribbles.

Deskscribble -- available in the Mac App Store for US$9.99 -- isn't something I will personally use very often. However, if I were still a Mac-using teacher (as I once was), it could be invaluable. Deskscribble lets you work with either a whiteboard or blackboard interface. It supports written text, diagrams and more, so teachers and others making presentations can "mark" on their desktops -- circling key concepts, underlining important words, etc. .-- and share this with others using a projector.

Besides teachers and those doing business...

How to use Pinned Sites in Mac OS X El Capitan

Safari in Mac OS X El Capitan features Pinned Sites to keep your favorite websites open and active. And there are a couple of ways to do the pinning.

The sites you pin will stay active in the background, pinned to the left side of your tab bar. Assuming you've launched Safari and have a website loaded, you can:

  • Click and drag on the tab you want to pin.
  • Slide it to the left side of the tab bar.

The tab will stay pinned and will sport a favicon to let you know which site it is. To unpin it, click the favicon and slide it to the right. 

You can also right click/control-click/two finger click on a tab. A contextual menu will pop up with options to Pin Tab, Close Tab, Close Other Tabs, or Move Tab to New Window.

Apple removing ad blockers that install root...

Apple this evening has removed a handful of apps from the App Store that install root certificates of their own. By installing their own root certificate, the app developers could theoretically gain access to encrypted traffic from users. Among some of the apps being removed are a select number of ad blockers. The ad blockers that have been removed are ones that block content both in Safari and in other apps.

The process that developers went through to be able to block ads in third-party apps is basically setting up a VPN where all traffic is run through the developer’s servers to remove the ads. This is a process that, obviously, could be used for malicious practices...

Apple begins selling unlocked, SIM-free iPhone 6s...

Two weeks following the initial launch of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, Apple has added a new purchasing option for the devices to its online store. Starting today, customers can buy an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus SIM-free, unlocked, and without a carrier…

Apple explains on its online store that purchasing a SIM-free iPhone means customers do not have to sign a contract commitment with a carrier, nor do they have to deal with carrier financing. It also notes that the device does not come with a nano-SIM, meaning that customers can go to a carrier of their choice and get a SIM, assuming the carrier supports the wireless bands the iPhone has. This, of course, means that the entire cost of the device must be paid upfront.


The SIM-free iPhone comes...

Elon Musk: All charged up in Berlin


Handelsblatt: Apple just hired some of Tesla’s most important engineers. Do you have to worry about a new competitor?

Musk: Important engineers? They have hired people we’ve fired. We always jokingly call Apple the “Tesla Graveyard.” If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple. I’m not kidding.

Handelsblatt: Do you take Apple’s ambitions seriously?

Musk: Did you ever take a look at the Apple Watch? (laughs) No, seriously: It’s good that Apple is moving and investing in this direction. But cars are very complex compared to phones or smartwatches. You can’t just go to a supplier like Foxconn and say: Build me a car. But for Apple, the car is the next logical thing to finally offer a significant innovation. A new pencil or a bigger iPad alone were not relevant enough.

Yet another person who should know better being dismissive of Apple. Remember when cell phone manufacturers said it’s not easy to make a phone and that Apple...

Facebook Tests New Button-Pushing Plan

Facebook on Thursday announced a pilot test of "Reactions," a way to respond to posts on the network in a more nuanced way than its Like button allows. The new feature is live in Spain and Ireland. CEO Mark Zuckerberg previously alluded to the eventual landing of a Like alternative, although he said it would not be a much-requested Dislike button. Facebook had good reasons to resist a Dislike button, with all of its attendant negativity. The new Reactions bar addresses the spirit of the user requests with a "more expressive Like button," said Chris Cox, chief product officer at Facebook.

Apple's computer line continues to increase its share of the personal computer market. What's more, the Mac has set a new record in the United States.

Apple saw its worldwide Mac sales rise 1.5 percent over the third quarter of 2015, while U.S. shipments jumped 7.3 percent, according to Gartner Inc. That's the highest ever market share Apple has ever achieved in United States' PC market, beating the previous record of 13.4 percent.

The research group says Apple now has 7.6 of the global PC market — up from 6.9 percent in the third quarter of 2014. The news is even better in the U.S. Gartner says Apple's market share here grew 7.3 percent year-over-year and now stands at 14.8 percent.

Universal Pictures releases powerful new ‘Steve Jobs...

With Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic set to hit theaters tomorrow, Universal Pictures has released what will likely be the final clip before the movie’s premiere. In the two-minute scene, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (played by Seth Rogen) questions Michael Fassbender’s Steve Jobs about his role in the computer industry.

Woz points out that Jobs has no engineering skill or experience and that most of his greatest accomplishments were built on the work of others, including Woz himself—yet Jobs seems to get most of the credit. Jobs goes on the defensive, positioning himself as the “conductor” of an engineering orchestra.

You can see the full scene below.
