Streaming services such as Apple Music help rebound...

In 2017 revenues from recorded music in the U.S. increased 16.5% at an estimated retail value to $8.7 billion, continuing the growth from the previous year. These increases came primarily from growth in paid music subscriptions to services like Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, Tidal, Pandora and others, which grew by more than 50%, according to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the trade organization that supports and promotes the creative and financial vitality of the major music companies.

This is the first time since 1999 that U.S. music revenues grew materially for two years in a row. At $8.7 billion, the industry has taken a decade to return to the same overall revenue level as 2008, and is still 40% below peak levels as the growth from streaming has been offset by continued declines in revenues from both physical and digital unit based sales.

Total revenues from streaming platforms were up 43% to...

Tim Cook addresses potential trade war, Facebook’s...

Speaking at the annual China Development Forum in Beijing, Apple CEO Tim Cook called for “calm heads” and more open trade, amid rising fears of a trade war between the U.S. and China, reports Reuters.

In February, Apple moved iCloud accounts registered in mainland China to state-run Chinese servers along with the digital keys needed to unlock them. This has privacy advocates and human rights groups worried, and the tech giant has received intense criticism from rights groups who say the decision makes it easier for Chinese officials to tap and collect private data.

"The changes being made to iCloud are the latest indication that China's repressive legal environment is making it...

The Mac gaming console time has forgot

Enlarge / Nope, that's not an Xbox, Playstation, or even a Dreamcast... (credit:'s Museum)

Apple in mid-1993 was reeling. Amidst declining Mac sales, Microsoft had gained a stranglehold over the PC industry. Worse, the previous year Apple had spent $600 million on research and development, on products such as laser printers, powered speakers, color monitors, and the Newton MessagePad system—the first device to be branded a "personal digital assistant," or PDA. But little return had yet come from it—or indeed looked likely to come from it.

The Newton's unreliable handwriting recognition was quickly becoming the butt of jokes. Adding to the turmoil, engineering and...

Making The Grade: What’s lacking in Apple’s...

Making The Grade is a new weekly series from Bradley Chambers covering Apple in education. Bradley has been managing Apple devices in an education environment since 2009. Through his experience deploying and managing 100s of Macs and 100s of iPads, Bradley will highlight ways in which Apple’s products work at scale, stories from the trenches of IT management, and ways Apple could improve its products for students.

I’ve been deploying and managing iPads since the fall of 2010, so I’ve truly been managing them from the beginning. Even before the iPad, we had deployed 80 or so iPod touches around our school. Things have changed a lot since then. Back in the early days, we were syncing apps via iTunes. If you think iTunes is slow now, try updating iOS on 15 iPod touches at one time!

Fast forward to 2018, and iOS deployment is a solved problem. Thanks to tools like JAMF and Apple’s...

Apple To Unveil a Cheaper iPad Next Week At Its...

Apple is holding an education-focused event on Tuesday where it's expected to launch a "low-cost iPad" alongside new education software. The goal is to win back students and teachers who have adopted similar products/services from rivals Google and Microsoft. Bloomberg reports: In its first major product event of the year, Apple will return to its roots in the education market. The event on Tuesday at Lane Technical College Prep High School in Chicago will mark the first time Apple has held a product launch geared toward education since 2012 when it unveiled a tool for designing e-books for the iPad. It's also a rare occasion for an Apple confab outside its home state of California. In Chicago, the world's most-valuable technology company plans to show off a new version of its cheapest iPad that should appeal to the education market, said people familiar with the matter. The company will also showcase new software for the classroom, said the people, who asked not to be identified...

Azio Mechanical Keyboard Marries Retro Looks and...

I spotted the Azio mechanical keyboard as a sponsored post in my Instagram feed last night, and I thought it was super cool. Originally funded on Indiegogo for more than $388,000, the Azio keyboard is shipping now. The one shown in the image below is the Azio Retro Classic BT (for Bluetooth), with a USB version available, too. It’s not quite steampunk, but it’s close, and there are several other styles, too. There are also also different color options for each model.  There are also models with modern key shapes, and some much cheaper entry-level models, but I love this typewriter feel on the Retro Classic. It’s priced at $189 for USB and $219 for Bluetooth. The video is from the original Indiegogo campaign.

Review: Yale’s Assure Lock SL is an awesome HomeKit-...

When it comes to HomeKit devices, our own Zac Hall is the resident expert around these parts, but I’m doing my best to come up to speed with the plethora of options available. I recently took my first stab at installing a smart lock, the 3rd gen August Smart Lock, only to later find out that it wasn’t HomeKit compatible. It’s primarily my fault, because I wasn’t diligent enough with my research, but August, with its somewhat confusing nomenclature should take a portion of the blame as well.

Needless to say, I wasn’t keen on the idea of having a smart lock installed without HomeKit support. That would mean that I couldn’t unlock my door with Siri commands, couldn’t use the Home app to control the lock, and couldn’t use HomeKit automation to trigger other HomeKit-enabled devices. In other words, a smart lock without HomeKit support is just not something that appeals to me.

Apple World Today News Update: March 23, 2018

Happy Friday! Today's Apple World Today News Update podcast has stories about happy developers, livestreams that aren't happening next week, possible product announcements in the education space, and using the fingers of dead people to unlock iPhones:

  • 5,000 Apple developers are probably dancing in the streets today after finding out that they're going to WWDC 2018. Another 500,000 developers are feeling suicidal after finding out they didn't win the WWDC lottery
  • Apple isn't going to livestream next week's education event from Chicago, fortunate as we won't have to watch Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel politicizing the event
  • A new, low-cost iPad with Apple Pencil support may be revealed at the Chicago event
  • Forbes reveals that law enforcement agencies now regularly use the fingers of the recently deceased in an attempt to unlock iPhones with Touch ID

Apple proposes nine new accessibility emojis

Apple has proposed nine new emoji to the Unicode consortium for inclusion in the standard set of images. If accepted, they will appear Emoji 12.0, which is scheduled for release early in 2019. 

In itself, that’s not a big deal, but Apple’s focus here is laudable. All nine emoji are aimed at better representation for people with disabilities. Apple makes its intentions clear in its proposal letter to the Unicode Consortium.

One in seven people around the world has some form of disability, whether that be a physical disability involving vision, hearing, or loss of physical motor skills, or a more hidden, invisible disability. The current selection of emoji provides a wide array of representations of people, activities, and objects meaningful to the general public, but very few speak to the life experiences of those with disabilities.

The new emoji would represent some of...

Review: iDevices Instant Switch

iDevices was one of the first HomeKit adopters we encountered, and unlike many companies that came on board later, pivoted into the home automation market as a result of HomeKit; prior to that, iDevices was best known for its Bluetooth connected cooking thermometers, such as the iGrill, iGrillmini, and Kitchen Thermometer. From a humble start with the iDevices Switch HomeKit smart plug, iDevices has built up its own family of somewhat unique home automation accessories, including a thermostat, outdoor outlet, and an in-wall switch and in-wall outlet. While all of the company's efforts up until now have been fully HomeKit-enabled, iDevices has continued to develop its own solid HomeKit-compatible iOS app, and has now released its first non-HomeKit accessory: the Instant Switch, designed to work exclusively with iDevices' own switches and outlets. {/exp:char_limit}

Review: Sonarworks True-Fi DSP Reference Headphone...

Choosing a headphone can be overwhelming. There are innumerable shapes, sizes, and sound signatures, at prices ranging from pocket change to a small fortune — how can we know what headphones are truly "good?" Reviewers (us included) can only provide subjective impressions, and searching for objective measurements of sound signature and quality can be a fool's errand — measurements often differ between even the most experienced reviewers, and even the most expensive measurement equipment is prone to user error and variations in test conditions. Manufacturers promise that their headphones sound like "what the artist intended," but that too is nearly impossible — most audio equipment colors the sound being played in some way; we cannot know what equipment the artist used during recording, and the artist cannot know what equipment we're using to listen. In this mess of audio anxiety, a Latvian audio technology company Sonarworks is taking a new approach with its True-Fi...

Meater: Wireless smart meat thermometer for all of...

The Meater wireless smart meat thermometer in its charging block.

I love to cook and especially love grilling. Over the years I've reviewed at least three meat thermometers that use an iPhone or iPad as a way to not only monitor the temperature of cooking meat, but to give you an indication of when it's done. What makes the Meater Wireless Smart Thermometer (US$69) unique is that all of the electronics are in a small, nail-like probe that you insert into the meat -- there are no cables leading to a external transmitter or your iOS device, so it's truly wireless.


Meater definitely gets the thumbs-up in terms of design. I frankly hated most of the other "wireless" meat thermometers that I reviewed, because the cables that dangled to the outside of the grill or oven tended to get damaged quite easily. Meater is tough -- a stainless steel probe with no cables and a ceramic "...

Jimmy Iovine, Apple Music, and social networks


“Right now, music streaming is a utility,” Iovine says. “All the services are exactly the same, they do the same trick. If one of them lowered their price the rest are toast, because there’s no unique offering.”

He suggests that Apple Music will have to look at the frontrunner in the film and TV streaming game, Netflix, and try to replicate its model in order to scale in any meaningful way.


“Netflix has tons of original catalogue, six billion dollars worth of original content every year. That’s a value. All of the [music] streaming services have exactly the same catalogue and exactly the same music. And that’s partially due to the labels; they want it that way. But it’s not smart, and it will show in the end. Unless the streaming services become platforms and have something unique about them, they will not scale. Period.”


“When Shawn Fanning started [music sharing site] Napster, he said, ‘I want to trade songs’,”...

With just days to go until Apple takes the stage at a school auditorium in Chicago for its next event, Bloomberg is spilling the beans on what’s going to be announced. According to the site’s well-placed sources, a cheaper iPad is on the way but a new MacBook Air probably isn’t.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that the event will predictively focus on education-related news, with a cheaper 9.7-inch iPad leading the way. Apple released the current non-Pro iPad last March with a retina screen and a price tag of $329. Gurman doesn’t say if the new model will...

Erasing complexity: The comfort of Apple’s ecosystem

I absolutely love this long piece by MacStories own Federico Viticci. Federico explores an important Apple theme, that Apple products are much more than the sum of their parts, that the surrounding ecosystem is the rising tide that lifts all boats. The ecosystem makes each Apple product easier to use, adds value to each product.

Here’s one quote about AirPods and the potential of Apple-branded over-ear headphones that, to me, really brings this point home:

For me, the best headphones aren’t necessarily the ones that sound “the best”. Sure, there is a time and place for sitting down, putting on a great pair of quality over-ear headphones, and just listening to music. I still do this with the H6 and Momentum Wireless, and it’s exactly why I hope Apple is indeed working on their own over-ear headphones. But over time I’ve realized that the absolute best sound reproduction isn’t my priority. Simplicity, reliability, and fast access to audio in my ears is what I’m looking...

In this guide we’ll be adding Facebook-owned domains to the hosts file, which will block them from our system. This is important because even if you deleted your Facebook account, Facebook can still track you around the web like Google does via its advertising platform.

This whole Facebook thing really has me torn. Personally, I was never a fan, at best a reluctant user. But I do get the benefit of reconnecting with old friends, that sort of thing.

But what I really hate is how deeply Facebook has embedded itself into the details of people’s personal data. So much so, that it has become almost impossible for the average person to extricate themselves from Facebook’s clutches....

Analyst: Apple is working on a ‘foldable’ iPhone for...

Bank of America Merrill Lynch says Apple is working with its Asian partners on a foldable phone for 2020, reports CNBC.

"We expect the iPhones this fall to be largely unchanged for the OLED versions although size changes have proved to be a catalyst in the past," analyst Wamsi Mohan wrote in a note to clients. "Our checks also suggest that Apple is working with suppliers on a foldable phone (that potentially could double up as a tablet) for launch in 2020.”

In 2016, Apple was granted a patent (number 9,504,170) for “flexible display devices” that hints at future “foldable” iPhones — and perhaps iPads, as well. In the patent filing, the company says that “it would be desirable to use flexible display technology to provide improved electronic devices.”

Here’s Apple’s summary of the...

Apple promotes upcoming Shinjuku store and Japanese...

[VIDEO] Follow the headline link, check out the neon signage. I think it’s gorgeous.

The new Shinjuku Apple Store is incredibly well placed. It’s just blocks from Shinjuku Station, by far the world’s busiest transport hub. My 2 cents, this will be one of the most successful Apple Stores in the world.

I also love the neon-themed video Apple built to promote the store. It’s embedded in the main Loop post. Enjoy.

Analyst believes Apple is developing a foldable...

One Bank of America analyst believes that the next major redesign of the iPhone following the drastic changes in the X model will be a new foldable form factor. Via CNBC, BoA Merrill Lynch report that Apple is working with suppliers to create a foldable phone, to launch in 2020.

Samsung has been teasing a foldable device for a while now, although at the moment it’s still vaporware. Foldable and flexible devices are definitely the future, it’s just not clear how soon that can become a reality.

Facebook is building a real 59-acre Facebook city in...

David Streitfeld, New York Times:

He leans over a scale model of the 59-acre site, which is named Willow Village. “There will be housing there,” he points. “There will be a retail street along here, with a grocery store and a drugstore. That round building in the corner? Maybe a cultural center.”

The “he” in this quote is Facebook’s VP of Real Estate, John Tenanes.

Willow Village will be wedged between the Menlo Park neighborhood of Belle Haven and the city of East Palo Alto, both heavily Hispanic communities that are among Silicon Valley’s poorest. Facebook is planning 1,500 apartments, and has agreed with Menlo Park to offer 225 of them at below-market rates. The most likely tenants of the full-price units are Facebook employees, who already receive a five-figure bonus if they live near the office.

And then there’s Google:

The search company plans a 600,000-square-foot office building with a roof that melts up into soft peaks, kind of like a...

Apple is granted a patent for a 3D document editing...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20180081519) for a 3D document editing system that includes a virtual reality and/or augmented reality device and an input device (e.g., keyboard) that implements sensing technology for detecting gestures by a user. 

The sensing technology would allow a user to make gestures while entering text via a keypad, which would allow the user to specify 3D effects in the document while typing. The system may also monitor entries made using the keypad, apply rules to the entries to detect particular types of entries such as URLs, and automatically shift the detected types of entries forward or backward on the Z axis relative to the rest of the content in the document.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that conventional graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for text generation and editing systems work in a two-dimensional (2D) space (e.g., a 2D screen or page on a screen). Highlighting areas or portions of text using these GUIs typically...

Time Out for macOS can help improve your health

Some health experts think the most dangerous thing most of us do every day is sit. Like smoking, they believe prolonged sitting is bad and can’t be overcome by exercise. Several studies have drawn connections between sitting too long and diabetes, hypertension, some forms of cancer, anxiety, and a generally greater probability of early death — though, admittedly, some studies question those other studies.

I’m an avid exerciser, but I do find myself getting so caught up in my Apple World Today chores that I sit for extended periods of time. I’ve decided to change this (hey, it can’t be bad for me!), and Dejal’s Time Out is helping me.

Apple confirms Siri/Lock Screen/Notifications...

Following up on an article covered yesterday, Apple has confirmed it will fix a privacy issue in which Siri can read aloud hidden lock screen notifications from many apps on iPhones.

Per Apple:

“We are aware of the issue and it will be addressed in an upcoming software update.”

It’s possible that the fix will be included in iOS 11.3, which is currently in beta. Apple could also choose to address the problem with a minor update such as iOS 11.2.7.

Siri’s behavior becomes a privacy issue because it can read aloud messages and emails from third-party apps such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Gmail, even if an iPhone is locked and notifications are hidden.

The issue is present in current versions of iOS 11.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become...

InvizBox launches portable VPN router

InvizBox has announced the global availability of InvizBox Go, a portable VPN router with a built-in power bank, Wi-Fi extension and ad blocker to secure Internet traffic and access blocked content. Pricing starts at $150.

Law enforcement officials have begun using the...

Your fingerprint is your fingerprint, even if you’re not among the living.

A new report released on Thursday revealed that U.S. law enforcement agencies have indeed used the fingers of corpses to unlock iPhones and obtain evidence.

These efforts are said to date back to November 2016, when the FBI attempted to use the finger of Ohio State University attacker Abdul Razak Ali Artan to unlock his iPhone 5s, according to FBI forensics specialist Bob Moledor. That didn’t work, since by the time legal authority had been obtained, Touch ID was disabled without re-entering a passcode. Data was later retrieved with the help of a forensics lab.

Anonymous sources described as “close to local and federal police investigations” in New York and Ohio stated that it has now become common practice to use the fingers of dead bodies to try to unlock iOS devices, as seen in overdose cases where a device may contain information that can lead to arrests. At least some attempts...
