Apple’s new Apple Park campus is officially set to open next month, and ahead of that, the company has recently updated Apple Maps with satellite imagery of the new campus and a proper description.

As can see into image above, you get some beautiful 3D imagery of Apple Park in Apple Maps, though not necessarily up to date. Nevertheless, we have some more details and images below…

Apple’s next chapter in podcasting

This is a great article by Jason Snell on some of the things that Apple may do in the future to help podcasting and those that make them. I honestly don’t think Apple will do anything to help the small podcaster, but they’ll do what they can to help the huge people in the business. In other words, exactly what they did with publications on Newsstand.

Apple’s U.S. forestry programs protects 36,000 acres...

Two years ago, Apple bought 3,600 acres in Brunswick County, North Carolina. According to The Conservation Fund, the Arlington, Virginia-based group Apple tapped to manage the effort, the project is starting to show returns – both for the Cupertino, California-based company and for the state of North Carolina.

Jena Thompson Meredith, vice president of business partnerships at The Conservation Fund, told the Triangle Business Journal that through Apple’s forest purchases in North Carolina and Maine, the organization has been able to protect 36,000 acres of sustainable forest. In 2016, the group harvested more than 13,000 metric tons of wood between the two forests, she says, though she did not break that number down by state.

Meredith says the collective annual production from the forests in North Carolina and Maine was equivalent to...

10 ScreenFlow tips for beginners [Video]

When it comes to recording your Mac’s screen, there are lots of options available for macOS. In fact, Apple includes a built-in screen recording option in QuickTime, and if you only record your screen once in a blue moon then it’s a satisfying option.

If, however, you find yourself recording your screen on a regular basis, you should definitely look into an app that’s more powerful and agile. ScreenFlow 6 is hands-down the best screen recording app available on any platform in my opinion. It features a healthy mix of powerful features, a beautiful UI, and an intuitive interface that’s easy to use.

If you’ve never used ScreenFlow, or you’re just getting started, then this post is for you. Check out our hands-on video walkthrough as I guide you through 10 basic ScreenFlow tips....

Back in 2015, Apple partnered with The Conservation Fund to protect 36,000 acres of forest.

Two years later, The Conservation Fund is offering some details on the effects of the partnership with Apple and says that the return it is showing, especially in the 3,600 acres located in North Carolina…

Inside a Phishing Gang That Targets Victims of...

tsu doh nimh writes: Brian Krebs has a readable and ironic story about a phishing-as-a-service product that iPhone thieves can use to phish the Apple iCloud credentials from people who have recently had an iPhone lost or stolen. The phishing service -- which charged as much as $120 for successful phishing attempts targeting iPhone 6s users -- was poorly secured, and a security professional that Krebs worked with managed to guess several passwords for users on the service. From there, the story looks at how this phishing service works, how it tracks victims, and ultimately how one of its core resellers phished his own iCloud account and inadvertently gave his exact location as a result. An excerpt from the report via Krebs On Security: "Victims of iPhone theft can use the Find My iPhone feature to remotely locate, lock or erase their iPhone -- just by visiting Apple's site and entering their iCloud username and password. Likewise, an iPhone thief can use those iCloud credentials to...

  • McDonald's will be rolling out a new app to allow pre-ordering and pre-payment of food prior to arrival at a restaurant

Review: Circle with Disney Parental Control and...

Internet-enabled iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch devices have made households more connected than ever, and a lot of families have moved away from the "one shared family computer" of days gone by into a situation where young kids may have their own iPods or shared iPads, and pre-teens and teens likely even have their own iPhones, all with the ability to independently access the Internet. While Apple does a pretty good job of offering parental restrictions, these have to be configured on each device specifically, and of course only apply to Apple's own devices; throw a few PCs or other non-Apple devices into the mix, and you're left trying to reconcile a confusing set of parental control options that will differ on every platform. This is where Circle Media's Circle with Disney ($99) comes into play — it's a simple box that connects to your Wi-Fi network to monitor and supervise your family's Internet activity, both in terms of where each member of your household can go...

In a note to clients — as note by AppleInsider — RBC Capital Markets analyst Amit Daryanani says Apple is on track for its Services business revenue estimates so far.

Services — Apple Music subscriptions, iTunes Music, iCloud storage plans, paid apps from Apple's App Store, and Apple Care service plans, Apple Pay, etc. — now account for 9% of Apple's overall revenue. In January Apple CEO Tim Cook said the Services category is on the verge of being a Fortune 100 business unto itself. He adds that the goal is to double the $7.17 figure over the next four years. Services now accounts for 9% of Apple’s revenue.

Daryanani says that for Apple to hit its Services projections, the company would have to grow revenues from the division by 18% over the next four years. On the average, Apple has grown Services by 21% per year,...

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.

Opinion: HP has out-"Mac mini'd" the...

Apple has been sitting on its hands, literally doing nothing with most of the Mac desktop lineup. Sure, we've seen fairly recent updates to the MacBook and MacBook Pro lines, and the iMac received a speed bump a few years ago, but the company has totally ignored both the Mac Pro (last updated 12/19/2013) and the Mac mini (10/6/2014). Now HP has released a new desktop box called the HP Elite Slice Desktop that puts the Mac mini to shame in terms of size and expandability.

HP Elite Slice Desktop

This thing makes the Mac mini look downright dated. It's in a sleek black box with cooling slots along the top that is only 6.5 x 6.5 x 1.38 inches big. By comparison, the Mac mini is 7.7 inches on a side. But the one feature that impressed me the most is that there's a modular architecture that provides connectivity to "slices", which are modules that stack with the HP Elite Slice Desktop...

Like Safari’s Reading List, you hit the share button in Chrome and choose Read Later from the menu. Chrome will then save the page for you. To access your reading list, tap the menu button in the upper right corner (the three vertical dots) and select Reading List.

Apple Found Guilty of Russian Price-Fixing

An anonymous reader shares a BBC report: Russia's competition watchdog has found that Apple fixed the prices of certain iPhone models sold in the country. The Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (Fas) said that Apple's local subsidiary told 16 retailers to maintain the recommended prices of phones in the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 families. Non-compliance with the pricing guidelines may have led to the termination of contracts, it found. At the time of the investigation, Apple denied that it controlled its products' pricing, telling Reuters that resellers "set their own prices for the Apple products they sell in Russia and around the world." The regulator said Apple had now ended its price-fixing practices but has not said whether the company faces a fine. The FAS claimed that Apple Rus monitored the retail prices for the iPhone 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s and 6s Plus.

With rumors swirling about three different iPads in the wings, but with no event confirmed, it’s still unclear what Apple has in the cards for the spring product releases. There have been rumors about Apple pushing forward production of the edge-to-edge 10.5-inch iPad but an absence of online leaks. An update to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is also expected but the timeline is unclear.

Today, Macotakara is posing the idea that a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2, with the first version released almost a year ago, could be the first new Apple product of the year. It is reportedly a minor, iterative, update over the current iPad Pro with no external design changes.

Both companies acknowledged and released fixes to help patch the web client vulnerabilities.

Drone Diary: The DJI Mavic Pro flies autonomously...

Flying a drone manually is fun, but there are some manoeuvres that are virtually impossible to fly smoothly. Circling an object or person, for example. You’d need to constantly change the balance of forward/backward and left/right inputs to fly the circle in the first place, then simultaneously keep rotating the camera by just the right amount to keep it pointed at the centre of the circle. Anyone who can do that perfectly is either a drone genius or has way more than the usual number of hands.

The DJI Go app offers a range of intelligent flight modes – aka autonomous flying. But a third-party app, Litchi, goes even further: it allows you to program your flight path in Google Earth before you even leave home. As soon as you arrive on site, just load the pre-programmed flight and hit Start.

Latest drone footage of Apple Park makes iPad event...

The latest drone footage of the Apple Park construction progress is in, and it makes an iPad event in the Steve Jobs Theater seem unlikely. We can only now be a matter of weeks away from the event, and there appears to be just too much mess – and too many potential hazards – for Apple to risk having 1,000 people wandering through the site.

After an investigation that started last August, Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service has found Apple guilty of price fixing, The Financial Times reports. The FAS claims Apple told 16 Russian retailers to set prices at a specific level and threatened to terminate sales agreements with those who refused to comply. In its statement, the FAS said Apple’s Russian subsidiary has been monitoring resellers’ pricing since the release of the…

Over 187,000 apps will be obsolete when iOS goes 64-...

Some 187,000 apps could be rendered useless with the launch of "iOS 11," according to the app analytics firm Sensor Tower — as noted by AppleInsider. That is the update is when Apple plans to kill 32-bit support.

That seems like a reasonable time table. The next version of iOS 11 will almost certainly be previewed at Apple’s 2017 Worldwide Developer Conference, which will be held June 5-9.

Apple has supported 64-bit apps on iOS since the launch of the iPhone 5s in September 2013. However, the company has also required developers submit new apps with 64-bit support since February 2015 and app updates since June 2015.

Canalys: the smartwatch market will grow 18% in 2017

Good news for the Apple Watch: the Canalys research group predicts that the smartwatch market will grow 18% in 2017, with 28.5 million units being shipped. This will mean the total value of smartwatch shipments in 2017 will reach $10 billion.

Canalys forecasts that there will be further declines in the traditional watch industry as smartwatch manufacturers release more high-end models. As the average selling price of smartwatches climbs, the value of the smartwatch market will reach about two-thirds that of the predicted value of the traditional Swiss watch market this year, according to the research group.

Rare working Apple I heading to auction

[VIDEO] MacRumors:

In 1976, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak designed and built the Apple I, or Apple-1, the company’s first computer. Of the 175 sold, only 50 to 60 or so remain in existence, including just eight functioning ones, making the iconic machine a rare collector’s item worth significantly more than its original $666.66 price.

This one is coming up for auction in May. Click through to the main Loop post for a video showing the Apple I at work.

Pegatron willing to make iPhones, iPads in the U.S....

Pegatron Corp., one of the two Taiwanese companies that assemble iPhones and iPads, is willing to move that part of its operations to the U.S. if Apple will absorb the additional costs, reports Focus Taiwan.

Pegatron CEO Liao Syh-jang was responding to questions raised at an investor conference about the company's plans for its assembly plants in light of the comments by U.S. President Donald Trump that American brands should keep their production on home soil.

"As long as there is demand, whether the clients are American or Chinese, Pegatron already has its production lines in place," Liao said. "If Trump institutes his Made in America proposal, it will be fine for Pegatron as long the client is willing to absorb the costs.”

There's a lot of debate about whether Trump can bring manufacturing, let alone manufacturing jobs, back to the US of a. Robots and automation have also taken...

Apple Watch shines in Cleveland Clinic heart rate...

Science Daily:

Researchers at Cleveland Clinic put five popular wrist-worn fitness trackers to the test to find out how accurately they gauge heart rate across several types of exercise and intensity levels.

And:

The devices chosen for testing (Apple Watch, Fitbit Blaze, Garmin Forerunner 235, and TomTom Spark Cardio) were based on their popularity and sales figures. Researchers then recorded volunteers’ heart rates at rest and after light, moderate and vigorous exercise across three types of activities, including the treadmill, stationary bike and elliptical (with and without hand levers). Measurements on the wearable devices were compared to readings from the chest strap and EKG.

And:

While the watch-style heart rate monitors may accurately report heart rate at rest, and most were acceptable on the treadmill, they were fairly inaccurate while bicycling or using the elliptical. Of the wrist-worn heart rate monitors, only the Apple Watch provided...

Samsung planning to win back iPhone & iPad chip...

Samsung’s chip business has been increasingly left out in the cold by Apple as the company has favored Taiwanese rival TSMC for the A-series processors used it its iPhones and iPads. TSMC won all of Apple’s business for the A-series chips used in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7, and is reported to be the exclusive supplier for the 10nm A11 chip destined for the iPhone 8.

But it seems Samsung hasn’t yet given up hope of winning future business from Apple. Korea’s ET News reports that the company is accelerating plans for 7nm chips in the hopes that these might be used for next year’s iPhones …

iOS market share grows in all but three markets over...

The latest mobile operating system sales data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech shows that iOS achieved continued growth across most regions tracked, except for Japan, Spain, and Urban China. Android also continued to post market share increases in all regions but the U.S., as “no other ecosystem is challenging the two giants – iOS and Android,” according to the research group.

In the three months ending January 2017, Android accounted for 56.4% of smartphone sales in the US, down 1.8 percentage points from the period a year earlier. iOS accounted for 42% of smartphone sales, up 2.9 percentage points year-on-year.

In EU5 [France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and United Kingdom], Android accounted for 74.3% of smartphone sales in the latest period, a marginal increase from 72.9% in the three months ending January 2016. iOS held a 22.7% share, with iPhone 7 remaining the top-selling device in Great Britain, France,...

Ugreen Apple Watch charger, no cable required

iOS 11 lock screen concept

Matt Birchler:

iOS 11 will all but surely be revealed at WWDC in June this year, and I would expect something to change on the lock screen there. So before Apple shows us what we’re getting in iOS 11, I decided to design my own new lock screen for iOS.

Matt has some excellent ideas here, designed to wring some usefulness from the lock screen, beyond checking the data and time and seeing notifications that have occurred since your last unlock.

I’ve long felt we should have the ability to fine tune what shows up on the lock screen and that Apple should open up the lock screen to developers. For example, I’d love to see the current temp/weather, along with my next appointment, on my lock screen.

Great writeup, worth reading.

Hackers hijack Twitter accounts to tweet about Nazis...

Twitter Counter, a third-party analytics service, appears once again to have provided a gateway for hackers to post messages to high-profile Twitter accounts.

An unlikely number of Twitter users suddenly learned to speak Turkish on Wednesday, posting an inflammatory message in the language replete with Nazi swastikas.

Among those posting the message were the Twitter accounts of Forbes magazine, the Atlanta Police Department, and Amnesty International, one of the few hacked accounts one might expect to speak Turkish.

Fears that these accounts had all been hacked were quickly allayed, when Twitter identified a third-party app as being to blame.

Thousands of Twitter users have this morning had their accounts hijacked and used to tweet a swastika and Nazi hashtags. The attack appears to be in support of Turkey’s President, urging support for a referendum which could allow President Erdoğan to remain in power until 2029.

The Verge reports that many verified and high-profile Twitter accounts were compromised, and that the hijack appears to have been carried out via a third-party app.

Accounts operated by Amnesty International, Duke University, Reuters Japan, and BBC North America were among those hijacked. Several users have noted that all hijacked tweets appear to have been linked to Twitter Counter, a Netherlands-based analytics application. Twitter Counter was...

While you slept, massive swastika-laced Twitter hack

The Guardian:

Thousands of Twitter accounts, including high profile ones belonging to users such as Forbes, Amnesty International, the BBC’s North American service, and tennis star Boris Becker were compromised on Wednesday morning, resulting in them tweeting propaganda related to Turkey’s escalating diplomatic conflict with Germany and the Netherlands.

All the compromised accounts were attacked through their use of a popular third-party analytics service, Twitter Counter.

There are captured images of a few of the tweets in the Guardian article.

This does beg the question: If your account was hacked, what do you do?

Here’s a link to Twitter’s official My account has been hacked page. Tuck this one away and hope you never need it.

Apple joins Google, other tech companies in...

Apple has joined Amazon and Microsoft in a court filing which supports Google’s decision to resist an FBI warrant demanding that it hand over emails stored outside the USA. The tech companies argue that this would set a ‘troubling’ precedent.

As reported, the FBI served search warrants ordering Google to surrender emails belonging to suspects in a criminal investigation. The emails themselves were stored on a server outside the USA. Google, in turn, refused, arguing that a domestic search warrant could not apply to data stored in a foreign country.

A Pennsylvania court both disagreed and instructed Google to comply with the warrant. Google has since appeared the ruling, with Apple, Amazon and Microsoft jointly filing an amicus brief in support of Google.

The filing does not suggest that the government is necessarily wrong to seek to extend the law to data stored overseas, but rather argues that the current law does not permit this, and it is for Congress –...

LG uses third-party fixes to provide shielding,...

It looks like the interference issue on the LG UltraFine 5K displays available through Apple have been resolved.

Following continued testing, the new monitors are apparently very slightly sensitive to high-powered RF emissions like from a very close cell tower or military radar like any monitor, the interference problems are rectified, with older monitors retrofitted by authorized third parties even less sensitive to the same emissions.

The new units, which have a slightly different shielding plate than the first run of fixed units. While the vast majority of users won’t see a problem, users within about 50 feet of an active cell tower, or a civil or military radar installation are experiencing the disconnect issues.

As it turns out, most monitors can be impacted up to 35 feet from a very powerful emitter. An original LG UltraFine 5K display with the retrofitted shielding is protected to 21 feet, better than average.

The second gen Gamevice really enhances game playing...

The second generation of the Gamevice controller has been upgraded with new buttons and thumb sticks, and it’s great for “old school” (think Pac Man) gamers like me. 

It’s compatible with the iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPad mini, iPad Air , 9.7-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. I’m using it with my iPhone 7 Plus, though I’m tempted to get one for my 12.9-inch iPad Pro, though I suspect that would make the super-sized tablet just too unwieldy.

The Gamevice clamps around the top and bottom of your iOS device and provides buttons and analog sticks. The two halves of the controller are connected by a rubberized strap that runs the length of the back of your iPhone or iPad with the Gamevice attaching to your Apple device via a Lightning port. Bluetooth connectivity would be a nice alternative, but, alas, this isn’t an option. Once plugged in, the Gamevice is automatically recognized by your iOS.

The latest Kantar data shows that iOS continued to grow its market share in all but three countries – with the iPhone 7 remaining the top-selling smartphone in the largest markets.

In the three months ending January 2017, iPhone market share in the U.S. was up 2.9 points year-on-year to hit 42%. This was a 1.5% increase on the two-year record reported for the previous quarter. All Android manufacturers combined totalled 56.4%, with other mobile operating systems all essentially now irrelevant.

In Europe, the iPhone retained its 22.7% share, with the iPhone 7 the best-selling phone in France, Germany and the UK. iOS did, however, see its market share fall in three markets …

How to group windows by application in macOS Sierra

macOS Sierra introduced system wide tabs for most (but not all) apps, allowing you to merge multiple windows into a single window or   separate merged windows. 

With two or more windows of a supported app open, go to the Windows menu and choose “Merge All Windows.” All windows of the same app will be grouped into a single window. Each file you have open will appear as a tab inside the single window.

To separate the merged windows into stand alone windows of their own, select the merged window to make it active. Go to the Windows and click the “Move Tab to New Window” option. Click it to move the selected tab to a separate window. 

This won’t separate all tabs into windows of their own, but will only separate the current tab to its own window. All remaining tabs will remain grouped into a single window unless you separate them one at a time.

Click the close button on a merged window, and it will close all tabs you have open in it.
