Minecraft Pocket Edition for iOS updated w/ skins,...

Mojang today announced a huge update to its popular Minecraft Pocket Edition app for iPhone and iPad. The big focus of the update is access to new free and paid skins for characters (as pictured above):

Skins are the way you change the appearance of your Minecraft character. Instead of looking like Alex or Steve, you can roll with a different vibe, like a butcher, dog, or plumber. Skins are purely cosmetic – they don’t affect the way the game plays or give you any special abilities.

Paid skins are available to purchase in bundles, but users can...

iPhone 6S will reportedly include new Force Touch...

Do you wish you could do more than just swipe and tap on your iPhone screen? If the rumors are correct, pretty soon you will be able to interact with the iPhone in another cool way.

According to 9to5Mac, the forthcoming iPhone 6S will include a “Force Touch” feature that will allow users to drop a pin in Maps, create an event in Calendar, and perform other quick functions by simply pressing more deeply on the screen. The Force Touch feature was first introduced with the Apple Watch earlier this year. On the Watch, Force Touch allows you to clear your notifications, compose a new message in the Messages app, share your locations in Maps, and a bunch of other interactions.

People are flipping their Apple Watch BOXES for more...

Jordan Kahn’s DIY Apple Watch charging case

The market for buying and flipping Apple Watches at a profit established itself in less time than it took Apple to deliver the first round of watches to pre-order customers. Taking entrepreneurialism way up to the next level, some ambitious Apple Watch owners are now taking to eBay to sell their Apple Watch boxes for a profit. Not the Apple Watch itself; just the packaging.

In one instance, the seller is actually asking more for the Apple Watch box itself, no watch included, than some retailers are asking for whole Android Wear watches. Talk about an Apple tax… err...

Large fire breaks out at Apple’s Mesa Arizona...


Update: It appears that the fire has been put out. NO injuries. Reports are that the fire was isolated to the Solar panels on the roof.

Local Media reports indicate that Apple’s Mesa Arizona facility is on fire.

Mesa fire said the fire is located near Elliot and Signal Butte Roads in east Mesa. The fire appears to be on the roof of the building over a loading dock. The fire does not appear to burning inside the building itself, officials said. No other information is known.

Apple has planned on using the building as a data processing plant after it was picked up in the GTAdvanced Bankruptcy. ...

Twelve South HiRise for Apple Watch: Simply beautiful

Twelve South HiRise for Apple Watch. Photo ©2015, Steven Sande. All rights reserved.

Over the past few weeks we’ve talked about some charging stands for the Apple Watch. Pad & Quill’s Timber Catchall is a solid wood beauty, the Duet Dock features a solid aluminum iPhone/Watch charging solution, as does the Night Stand Kickstarter project (which doesn’t appear to be making it into production...). Today I’m looking at the Twelve South HiRise for Apple Watch (US$49.99), a compact and sturdy Watch charging stand that’s now shipping.

CarPlay support added to MLB At Bat iPhone app

There’s one more app joining Apple’s small list of road-ready apps for the car today as MLB At Bat for iPhone has been updated with CarPlay support. MLB At Bat version 8.2 adds its own CarPlay interface for iPhone users with supported in-dash receivers in the car. The app’s game audio streaming is expected to be the focus of the CarPlay version, although the menu has been empty for me in testing as no games are currently being played until this evening.

Apple reportedly considering $1.6b bond sale in Japan

Apple financial engineering is nothing to sniff at: with nearly $200 billion in cash, they have a lot of flexibility to initiate capital trades. Following a major seven-part domestic bond sale in the US, Nikkei reports it is now looking to do something similar in Japan.

Apple is interested in Japan due to comparatively lower interest rates than the US so it can sell debt more cheaply there than it could elsewhere. The report notes Apple is looking at a bond sale of about $200 billion in yen, which is equivalent to over $1.6 billion dollars. Apple...

Review: Griffin WatchStand for Apple Watch

Griffin's WatchStand ($30) is one of the first Apple Watch stands to hit the market. WatchStand is made of plastic and rubber — the most visible portions of the stand are almost all black plastic. Notably, Griffin has come up with a few very clever and welcome touches for its stand. The first is cord management, as an inner rubber core allows users to wrap the Apple Watch's long charging cable around it, significantly cutting down on the amount of exposed cable which needs to be fed out the bottom of the stand. The other bit of inspired design is an asymmetrical weighted base with a wedge, which allows iPhone users to charge the device while displaying it for viewing. WatchStand includes a small rubber spacer to be used with the stainless steel Apple Watch charger.{/exp:char_limit}

Is Home Where HomeKit's Heart Is?


Apple reportedly is preparing to launch an app called "Home" to act as an interface for setting up and managing smart devices that plug into its HomeKit framework. The Home app is expected to manage thermostats, smoke alarms, garage door openers, door locks, and other automated home tech. Apple already has announced that some HomeKit products will be making their debut at this year's WWDC, which will be held next month in San Francisco. It's possible the Home app could be unveiled there as well.

Feed the Line is a tricky precision game for iPhone...

Feed the Line (free, universal) is a precision game from Touchdown Games with one rule: push rising blocks into a line in the center of the screen before they reach the top. Sounds easy, but this game is kicking my backside.

The game is played in landscape orientation, with the line bisecting the play area. There's are "fingers" on the far left- and right-hand sides, pointing towards the center. As you play, small, colorful blocks rise from the bottom on the screen. You must push them onto the line before they reach the top of the screen by tapping left or right to extend the fingers and give them a nudge. The longer the tap, the further the fingers extends. Once three blocks reach the top of the screen outside of the line, the game is over.

What Jony Ive's new job means for Apple design

Without designer Jony Ive, Apple as the world knows it wouldn’t exist. Macs, iPhones, and iPads certainly wouldn’t be as iconic without Ive’s industrial magic. The Cupertino company has always prized Ive’s skills, but now the former senior VP of design is joining CEO Tim Cook and CFO Luca Maestri in the C-suite as Apple’s first ever Chief Design Officer.

Ive established a signature look for Apple’s core device lineup and ushered in a new product category this year with Apple Watch. In his new role, which takes effect July 1 and was announced in a memo from Cook to Apple employees as well as a glowing profile of Ive in The Telegraph, the design chief can focus his ambitions on high-level, grand-scale design projects...

AWT Health Club: Keeping your brain sharp

Last week's Health Club topic was motivation; it appears that I needed some. My week was pathetically bad, with my excuses being that I had to move my parents back to their home after my Dad's stay at a local skilled nursing facility and that once again, it was rainy. On the plus side, this week is forecast to be sunnier, warmer and drier than last, and I will be able to devote more time to my health.

Our topic this week is keeping your brain sharp. Work by scientists and the medical research community has shown that it should be possible for the brain to be “trained” to create new pathways and places for memory and cognition to occur. You’ve probably seen and heard ads from Lumosity, which talk about neuroplasticity and how their games can help memory and other brain skills at any age.

Rumor: Next-gen iPhone to feature 12-megapixel Sony...

It’s a rumor, but it’s a rumor that could point towards an really nifty camera for the next-gen iPhone.

A recent report states that the next-gen iPhone will arrive with a 12-megapixel Sony sensor that makes use of the firm’s RGBW technology to help with low-light photography.

Sources downplayed the possibility of a dual-camera setup with wide-angle and telephoto lenses, but noted that RGBW means an alleged switch to smaller pixels won’t come at the expense of low-light imaging.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus both employ 8-megapixel sensors with larger-than-average pixels designed to improve light sensitivity. RGBW makes use of an extra white...

Midas Touch Kickstarter project looks to bring DIY...

If you don’t want to shell out US$10,000 or more for the 18 karat gold Apple Watch Edition, you can invest in a Kickstarter to be able to spend about US$100 to have the base model Apple Watch plated in 24 karat gold.

The Midas Touch Kickstarter project, started by chemist Eric Knoll, offers a step-by-step kit for applying a 24K gold plating to your Apple Watch. The kit itself starts at just under US$100, and goes up to US$150 if you have a steel band to cover in addition to the watch casing itself. This works as a cheaper solution to sending your Apple Watch along to a company to do the work.

The kit will allow you to touch up the plating with...

Windows 10 will also feature a new “Phone Companion” app as a central place for PC users to install Cortana and other Windows-related apps for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone.

Cortana was unveiled on Windows Phone 8.1 last April as the company’s answer to Siri and Google Now, and the company is also bringing the personal digital assistant to the desktop as part of Windows 10 this summer. Cortana’s...

Microsoft's Cortana coming to the iPhone

Microsoft has announced that it will bring its digital assistant, Cortana, to the iPhone later this year. The company says it will be a "companion" to the Windows 10 PC version of the service, and not the full Cortana for mobile experience:

"Some features require access to the system that aren't currently possible with iOS or Android, so things like toggling settings or opening apps won't initially be available in the Cortana companions for those platforms. Similarly, the ability to invoke Cortana hands-free by saying "Hey Cortana" requires special integration with the device's microphone, so that feature will be limited to Windows Phones and PCs."

Like digital assistants? Well here's one more for your iPhone, due within the next few...

Local Content Deals to Delay Apple’s Streaming TV...

Apple most likely won't launch its rumored streaming television service this fall thanks to content licensing deals for local content. The company wants to include local TV stations as part of its service, but swinging the deals is proving to be a difficult task.

The Mac Observer Spin: If Apple really wants to disrupt the current television distribution model, deals with local stations across the country would play a significant role. Considering how difficult it is to line up those deals, however, Apple may have to make a decision to keep waiting, or launch with just a handful of stations and hope more come on board over time.

Opinion: Should AAPL stockholders be worried about...


The Apple world this morning seems divided between those who seemingly haven’t grasped the implications of Apple’s ‘promotion’ of Jony Ive, merely taking Cook’s memo at face value, and those switching into full-on ‘Apple is doomed’ mode. The reality is, I think, a little more nuanced.

It seems pretty clear that this move is, as Seth outlined earlier, about Ive taking more of a backseat role – and especially being able to spend a lot more time back in England. Apple’s decision to announce the news on a day when the US markets were closed was obviously not coincidence.

Apple didn’t want to see a knee-jerk panic reaction on Wall Street setting its...

A quick review of Apple’s new iPhone Lightning Dock

Earlier this week, Apple released a new iPhone Dock. Back in the day, the third generation iPod came with a dock, and nearly two years ago Apple released iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C docks. Those old docks had a 30-pin or Lightning connector, respectively, as well as a 3.5mm line out connector. As I like to use my iPhone on my nightstand as a clock while it charges (Analog Digital Clock for the win!), I took a knife to my 5S Dock and managed to make it fit an iPhone 6. But I ended up using the dock fairly rarely because docking requires getting my iPhone out of its case—which I use religiously with the iPhone 6.

Users can own the font after renting it for 12 months and a font can be shared with a team for a fraction of its rental price.

Fontstand’s pricing centers around European standards, a family of 10 styles of font generally retailing for around €67 (US$73.55) while a single font might retail for €15 (US$16.47).

A skeptic’s Apple Watch diary: One month in, after...

When I decided that I was keeping my Apple Watch after my arbitrary one week trial, several of you wondered whether that would still be the case once the novelty had worn off. Indeed, I wondered that myself.

Well, it’s now a month in as of yesterday, and I can definitely say the novelty has worn off – and, somewhat to my surprise, I’m still wearing it every day. Perhaps it’s time to drop the ‘skeptic’ part of the title.

Given the kind interest shown in my earlier pieces, I thought I’d update you with a few additional things I’ve noted and the reasons I’m still wearing it …

Apple vs. Lenovo: Lenovo's Coming-Out Party


If there is one vendor on the planet that has the capability to fight Apple -- on paper, it is Lenovo. Lenovo this week will hold its annual Lenovo Tech World event in China, showcasing the company's new breadth. While it would be easy to position this as the U.S. against China, Lenovo is actually far more of a multinational company, with executives balanced between the U.S. and China, and with strong alliances with both Microsoft and Google. This will not only be a battle between companies, but also between approaches to the market.

Designer shows why Apple is adopting San Francisco...

When Apple launched the Watch, it also designed a new system font to go with it: San Francisco. The typeface was specifically designed to combine a clean look with readability on the small display of the Apple Watch.

We exclusively revealed last week that Apple doesn’t intend to limit San Francisco to the watch: it instead plans to adopt the new typeface for Macs, iPhones and iPads. San Francisco is expected to replace Helvetica Neue as part of iOS 9 and OS X 10.11. Designer Wenting Zhang features the font in a...

Showdown! Four Apple Watch calculator apps face off

My first wearable device other than a regular old wristwatch was a Sinclair Wrist Calculator. Over the years, I had other calculator watches from Casio and the like so I naturally got excited about the idea of having a calculator on my Apple Watch. Fairly quickly, I had four — PCalc ($9.99, also PCalc Lite for free), CalcyCalc ($0.99 launch price), CalcBot (free with in-app purchases) and CALC (free with in-app purchases). This is a quick look at these four...

LEO THE NORWEGIAN FOREST CAT. PHOTO BY GEERT-JAN NILSEN

It's been a few weeks since we've had our feline friends gracing the Saturday "front page" of Apple World Today, but earlier this week we received an email from a Norwegian reader, Geert-Jan Nilsen, with a link to this beauty.

GJ let us know that Leo had just rebooted "her" MacBook Pro after updating to the latest OS X 10.10.4 beta. Do I sense a bit of impatience in her face while she's waiting for the update to finish?

Leo's a Norwegian Forest Cat (AKA Norsk Skogkatt), a breed of cat that's perfectly adapted to the cold winters of Norway. She certainly looks warm in all that fur!

A racing legend on mastering America’s greatest track

Wired:

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, founded in 1909, is the world’s oldest permanent motorsport facility. It’s changed a lot since the early days—pavement instead of bricks for a racing surface, new stands and administration buildings—but the track is essentially the same. It still has corners banked at 9 degrees, 12 minutes, and those corners are the same radius they were a century ago.

More than that, the track is still a magical, ghostly place, eerily alive with death and life. Stand on the front straight and stare into Turn 1—it looks like a tunnel, or maybe a wall of asphalt—and you feel the echo of death and time in your bones.

I’ve watched this race every year since I was eight years old and I was lucky enough to drive my motorcycle on it for a charity event. It really is a amazing place.

Great expectations: An Ars reader wishlist for iOS 9

Last weekend we published a short wishlist of things we’d like to see in iOS 9. Some of it was fairly basic, some of it was more involved. Some wishes were new, and others have been around for years. Some things seemed like a safe bet, and others were more farfetched. But software is never done, and hey, we can dream.

Many of you had desires beyond what we asked about, and we’ve gathered some of the most interesting and frequently requested features here. Like our original list, your requests are a mix of plausible and implausible, simple and complex. But all of them would be interesting additions that would make iOS more useful.

Review: Kanex USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter...

Adapters for adding thicker ports are nothing new for Apple’s modern line of notebooks. Even the high-end Retina MacBook Pro decidedly excludes a direct Ethernet connection, and Apple’s MacBook Air and new ultrathin 12-inch MacBook are especially too thin for a wired connection to the Internet without relying on an adapter in the middle.

While modern WiFi is fine for most everyday situations, even Apple acknowledges that a wired connection is necessary in some instances. To remedy this, it sells a $29 USB Ethernet Adapter and a faster $29 Thunderbolt to Ethernet Adapter. The 12-inch MacBook has neither port, however, additionally requiring Apple’s $19 USB-C to USB Adapter to work with the slower adapter.

Fortunately with USB-C being a new industry standard, accessory makers like Kanex are ready with solutions like the...

Nearly a month after the Apple Watch officially went on sale, gold Edition models have begun arriving for non-celebrity customers who placed the earliest online orders.

Inside the box, however, the items are a bit different. As we’ve noted before, the Apple Watch Edition includes a colored leather-covered box that integrates the MagSafe charger. The Edition also includes a color-matched cleaning cloth with the word Edition embossed into the material. The...
