Goodbye Macworld

The Verge:

Over the last decade we all made an enormous effort to transform Macworld editorial from a magazine mentality to a web site mentality. And honestly, it worked: By the end, the magazine was essentially a curated collection of the best stories from the web site, cut down and copy edited and with nice photographs. The economics of the business just didn’t make it possible to continue.

The demise of print is a sad but understandable result of the age we live in. That being said, the demise of Macworld is sad in a completely different way.

A 3D Printed Microscope for Your iPhone for Pennies

Scientists at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington have developed a 3D printed microscope housing for various mobile devices that costs pennies. Combined with an easily available glass bead, the device can offer up to 1,000x magnification. The result is a cheap, digital microscope that can be used in the field to photograph and transmit images of biological samples and get results in minutes. If contaminated, the device is so cheap, it can be thrown away and a new one substituted. "We believe it can fill a need for professional first responders, and also for teachers and students in the classroom, health workers and anyone who just wants an inexpensive microscope readily available," said Rebecca Erikson an applied physicist at PNNL. The laboratory has made the 3D printer specifications available for free, and the video notes, "We've found that the iPhone 5 provides a more optimal picture."

iOS 8 Rolls Out With Oodles of Goodies


Apple made the latest version of its iOS mobile operating system available for download on Wednesday, and while it looks familiar, it contains lots of new delights not only for fans, but also for its legions of developers.

One of those new features is Handoff. It allows you to work on a document, email or project across Apple devices, including those running OS X Yosemite.

Alongside the iOS 8 kerfuffle, Apple has posted some new downloads for developers too. OS X Server 4.0 Developer Preview is the latest seed of Yosemite Server and Xcode 6.0.1 is the latest version of the Apple IDE. Xcode 6.0.1 is the version of Apple’s development environment that Apple wants all developers to use going forward for iOS 8 apps. Interestingly, it is different to the Xcode 6 GM that Apple published last week, although the nature of the changes are unclear. It is rolling out to the App Store as a free download now.

Get to know iOS 8: Messages gets new ways to...

Messages is arguably the most useful communications tool on your iPhone. What started as a way to make SMS text conversations easier to follow has blossomed into a full-fledged communication powerhouse. And in iOS 8, Messages is better than it's ever been. Ironically, one of its best new tricks is the equivalent of leaving an old-fashioned voicemail—only now that's way more useful because it lives alongside the texts, photos, videos, and shared locations you keep in Messages already. Let's walk through what's new and cool in Apple's chat app.

Say anything

Constantly tapping out texts in Messages is the exact exercise the Surgeon General recommends for injuries to the thumb tendons—OK, that's not true. But it is true that, in iOS 8, you don’t have to use your thumbs to let someone know you’re thinking of them. You don’t even have to send words.

Get to know iOS 8: Spotlight, Siri, and notifications

iOS 8 isn’t the radical departure from previous versions of Apple’s mobile operating system that iOS 7 was. While there exist brand new features, some of the most attractive elements of the latest OS are refinements to existing features. They include notifications, Spotlight searches, and Siri interactions. Let’s dive in to see how the changes will affect you.

Quick Reply

If you’re running OS X Mavericks on your Mac, you’re aware of the ability to quickly reply to certain items in Notification Center. For example, if someone sends you a text message, you can respond to it just by typing in Notification Center—no Messages app necessary. Likewise, you can use this same area to enter a quick response to an email message or answer a FaceTime call.

iOS 8 over-the-air updates are rolling out now

iOS 8 has been released to the public.

Andrew Cunningham

As promised at the iPhone 6 unveiling last week, Apple has just released iOS 8 to current iDevice users with compatible hardware. The software arrives two days ahead of the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and it's available either as an over-the-air update or through iTunes. The update should be available for the iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, and 5S; all iPads except the first-generation model; the fifth-generation iPod Touch; and both revisions of the third-generation Apple TV.

You can read pretty much everything there is to know about iOS 8 in our main review, but suffice it to say this is a big update. The headlining features include the new extensions, Continuity features that make your iDevices work more seamlessly with one another, improvements to many core applications, Family Sharing accounts that allow you to share purchases...

iOS 8 Extensions: How they work and why they matter...

Even though iOS 8 superficially looks like its immediate predecessor, there are some new under-the-hood technologies that'll have a huge impact on the way we all use our iOS devices. One of the most significant of these is something Apple calls Extensions.

What are extensions?

Simply put, extensions allow iOS apps to “lend” functionality to one another or to the operating system. Apple is allowing developers to create and distribute extensions whose functionality falls in six distinct areas:

Get to know iOS 8: Changes in the Settings app

With every new version of iOS, Apple loves to add, tweak, and change settings; unsurprisingly, iOS 8 is no different. Here’s a comprehensive list of just about everything the company has changed in iOS 8 within the Settings app.

Cellular

The Cellular section used to be hidden in iOS’s General section in previous versions, but was moved to the main screen of the Settings app in iOS 7. It remains there in iOS 8, and for the most part remains unchanged—Cellular features toggles for Cellular Data, LTE, and Data Roaming, along with the menu for using your iPhone as a Personal Hotspot (which, oddly enough, also gets its own listing on the main screen).

iOS 8 Review

An anonymous reader writes: Apple is releasing iOS 8 today, and Ars Technica has posted one of their huge, thorough reviews of the updated operating system. They have this to say about the UI: "iOS 8 tries to fit a whole lot more stuff onto a single screen than iOS 7 did. The operating system was clearly developed in anticipation of iPhones with larger screens." The biggest new feature is Extensions: "Older versions of iOS limited what third-party applications could do to communicate with external services and other third-party applications. ... Extensions remove some (but not all) of those barriers." The biggest examples of extensions are custom keyboards, a feature iOS users have been requesting for years. Downsides to iOS 8 include increased storage and processing requirements, which are bad news for older iPhones, and a host of new bugs associated with the new features.

He notes that the battery lasted about 14 to 15 hours in testing, doing far better than the 8 to 10 of the iPhone 5s.

Apps affected include workout app Carrot Fit, calorie counting app MyFitnessPal, and major health app WebMD among others. Each app that has been pulled from availability on the App Store previously introduced full support for iOS 8’s HealthKit feature, which Apple encouraged developers of such apps to have ready for iOS 8 launch day earlier this year at WWDC.

The authentication system now requires users to enter a dynamically generated code sent to a trusted device prior to gaining access to the service.

Apple first tested the extra layer of iCloud.com security in June, more than one year following the protocol’s introduction for Apple ID accounts in 2013.

In practice, iCloud.com two-step verification asks users logging in to provide...

Not that this is for everyone, but if you’re really adamant about capturing 4K video on your iPhone, this might be up your alley. For those of us who care slightly less about iPhone video quality, there is also a somewhat more modest VizzyWig application that is priced at US$30.

Apple beefs up security with 2-factor authentication...

A sneaky method hackers use to crack your iCloud back-ups won’t work anymore if you’re serious about your security. On Tuesday night, Apple turned on two-factor authentication for iCloud, which will protect against the kind of social engineering exploits that helped hackers steal celebrity photos last month.

Until Tuesday, Apple’s brand of two-factor authentication only protected your Apple ID, preventing people from making purchases from your account. But if thieves were able to guess the answers to your security questions and recover your password, they could easily use third-party software to access your iCloud backup. Your photos, documents, text messages: All of it was up for grabs.

The five reasons Apple never intended to use...

Time is reporting that, in contrast to the many rumors (and GTAT investor claims), Apple had never planned to use sapphire displays for the iPhone 6, and the company may not use it for future iPhones.

Some reports stated that up until a few weeks before the iPhone announcement, Apple was going to use sapphire but dropped it because of yield issues. This is not true. My sources tell me that...

A slide into obsolescence: iOS 8 on the iPad 2

iOS 8 doesn't make a huge difference, visually, save a few small points.

CN.dart.call("xrailTop", {sz:"300x250", kws:["top"], collapse: true});In case you've been so content with your iPad 2 over the last few years that you've drifted away from paying attention to the Apple product cycle, here is some six-month-old news: Apple finally stopped selling the iPad 2 model back in March. After it hung on at the bottom of the tablet product line for a couple of years to be a rock for the education and corporate markets, Apple kicked the iPad 2 out and resurrected the iPad 4 as the new full-size budget model.

But for now, Apple is continuing to update the iPad 2, in part because it has so much in common with the non-retina iPad mini, including the Apple A5 processor and 1024x768 display. But the iPad 2 hung around so long because it's also a legacy device. There are students depending on updates, as well as companies who used the iPad as a default device, like Square.

Apple Adds App-specific Password Support to iCloud

Apple added two-step authentication support to iCloud on Tuesday, and also announced that app=specific passwords for the online service will be available starting on October 1. App-specific passwords will let users assign unique passwords to apps that need access to iCloud without having to hand over their primary login and potentially give full access to everything in their account.

The Mac Observer Spin: App-specific passwords will be a great way to help keep your iCloud data secure because third-party apps and services won't have your full login. If any are compromised, hackers will have access only to the content that app or service used, and if your Mac or iPhone is lost or stolen, you can revoke individual passwords to reduce the risk of someone getting at data you'd rather keep private.

iOS 8 on the iPhone 4S: Performance isn’t the (only...

The iPhone 4S. I remember when this was the one that made my old phone feel slow.

Andrew Cunningham

CN.dart.call("xrailTop", {sz:"300x250", kws:["top"], collapse: true});iPhones have about a year to be top-of-the-line. Then they have a year to be the modest-but-capable midrange model. After that, they become the free-with-contract choice. And then, in their last year, they enter that no-man's-land where they're still getting software updates but are no longer being sold.

2014 is the year the iPhone 4S was told to pack up its things and move to the retirement home. As a going away present, Apple gave it iOS 8, which in all likelihood will be the last major version upgrade it gets.

For the last two years, we've taken the oldest phone supported by each new iOS update and looked at what you stand to gain (and lose) by installing the update. We were impressed by...

iOS 8, thoroughly reviewed

iOS 8 is here, and it's a big deal.

Andrew Cunningham

"Huge for developers. Massive for everyone else."

That was Apple's tagline for iOS 8 when the software was announced at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference back in June. Overuse of superlatives is a pet peeve of mine, but after using iOS 8 for a couple of months, I have to say that they're warranted in this case. iOS 7 was a comprehensive makeover for an operating system that needed to reclaim visual focus and consistency. iOS 7.1 improved stability and speed while addressing the new design's worst shortcomings and most egregious excesses. And iOS 8 is the update that turns its attention from the...

Foxconn struggling to meet demand for iPhone 6

The Wall Street Journal reports that Foxconn, Apple’s main manufacturing partner, may be struggling to keep up with the demand for the new iPhone 6 models. The company has reportedly been “churning out 140,000 iPhone 6 Plus and 400,000 iPhone 6” units every day, which is its highest daily output every, but the volume still hasn’t been enough for the number of preorders. Foxconn has apparently had to hire additional workers…

“We have been churning out 140,000 iPhone 6 Plus and 400,000 iPhone 6 every day, the highest daily output ever, but the volume is still not enough to meet the preorders,” said a person familiar with the matter …

Our own security expert, Rich Mogull, suspects that it was a limitation demanded by the banks. On other manufacturers’ devices, NFC can be programmed to read signals from NFC tags to automate actions.

Review: T-Mobile’s $25 Personal CellSpot is a no-...

In all of the hoopla over the new iPhone 6/Plus, T-Mobile in the US and EE in the UK got themselves a pretty big exclusive (for now). T-Mobile has been offering Wifi calling for years but it’s recently come to the iPhone – and with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, gets even better with cell/wifi handover. (T-Mobile partnered with Gogo to enable texting and voicemails on participating airline journeys as well).

Wifi calling, for some, may be the type of feature that makes or breaks a carrier relationship. With it, you can make calls anywhere there is a wifi signal. That means basements, country homes and even foreign countries are all now open to making and receiving calls from your carrier phone number…

This isn’t just any call quality either. This is HD voice (if the other party also has it) and it sounds as good as any call you...

LG Display will supply Apple AMOLED panels for the Apple Watch, with shipments expected to reach about five million a month in 2015, according to sources at LG Display.

The company had been expected to split display production between the two companies, and the usual caution needs to be applied to DigiTimes stories, which rely on anonymous supply-chain sources.

Early reviews confirm that the iPhone 6 Plus has the same 1GB RAM as the iPhone 6. It had been suggested by some that the 5.5-inch model might have a higher spec, with 2GB RAM.

They reveal that both models of the iPhone 6 have identical specs bar the display, battery and optical stabilisation in the camera of the larger model (the 4.7-inch model having only electronic stabilisation) … 

It’s not a surprising finding: Apple tends to be conservative with RAM, and it makes obvious production sense to have as many components in possible in common between the two models. It will, though, disappoint those who like to have multiple Safari tabs open and to switch back and forth between them without the pages refreshing.

The iPhones 6

The Big Picture

A few days into testing the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, I accidentally left my personal iPhone 5S on a desk next to the iPhone 6 Plus. While my back was turned, the Plus tried to eat my 5S. It’s a monster.

I kid, but only sort of. The 6 Plus is ginormous. And it wants to be your only mobile device.

Last week after the announcement event, Apple provided me with review units of both iPhones 6 (a white/gold regular 6 and a white/silver 6 Plus, both running on Verizon, which allowed me to pop my personal SIM card into both phones for testing). I spent the first three days using the 6 Plus as my full-time phone, and the next three days using the 6. I wish I’d had more time with both phones before writing this, but my high-level take is very simple, and would not change with more time:

  • If you simply want a bigger iPhone, get the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. That’s what it feels like: a bigger iPhone.

  • If you want something bigger...

The app-specific password approach not only protects the iCloud and Apple ID account, but enhances security for apps that don't support two-step authentication....
