iPhone 6s & 6s Plus are 11% heavier than their...

Apple did something very uncharacteristic with the launch of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus – it made the devices both thicker and heavier than their predecessors. While many people attributed this weight gain to the new 7000 series aluminum the new iPhones use. It appears, however, that the weight gain is actually attributable to the new 3D Touch display.

According to figures revealed in the official environmental documents for the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, the new display...

Apple today debuted four new ads for Apple Music via its YouTube channel. The ads, like the three debuted last month, focus on the service’s capability to help listeners to discover new music. The new ads feature musician Leon Bridges, singer songwriter Shamir, and rapper Flying Lotus. Apple also today announced a new partnership with Burberry that will see the company developing an Apple Music channel exclusively featuring British artists.

In her ad, Flo Morriessy performs her single “Pages of Gold” while playing the piano. The description for the video reads:”Introducing artists you didn’t know you couldn’t live without. Discover and connect with new music and the people who make it – artists like Flo Morrissey.”

Hot on the heels of Plex announcing its plans to build an app for the new Apple TV, the developers behind the popular media playback software VLC have announced that they too are planning to support the new Apple TV.

“Some code to build VLCKit for the new tvOS was merged,” the blog post reads. “It’s very early though, but we have video playback.” It’s unclear at this point how VLC will be implemented...

Apple shutting down transit app HopStop in October

Apple-owned transit app HopStop will no longer be available starting in October, according to a notice on the website.

HopStop will shutdown two weeks after Apple is set to release iOS 9 with new built-in transit directions in Maps. But whereas HopStop has public transit directions and routes for 113 U.S. cities, Apple Maps will have transit directions for only six U.S. cities: Baltimore, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. At least Apple users in China will be happy. In additional to the six American cities, Maps will support transit directions for 300 Chinese cities.

iSkelter Tab lap desk -- an outstanding way to work...

iSkelter Tab Right WhiteBoard. Photo ©2015, Steven Sande

My iPad Air 2 lives in a keyboard case, but I don't find it at all comfortable to use it as a laptop device. Instead, I usually find myself either squirming into an uncomfortable position in a recliner to try to type and tap, or I give up and go sit at a table. That hasn't been the case since I had a chance to try out iSkelter's Tab (US$59.99), a handmade wooden lap desk that has changed the way I work with my iPad.


The Tab is a sturdy lap desk made of natural finish bamboo. With dimensions of 15 x 11 x 0.75 inches, it's thick enough that you can really get a good grip on it while carrying. That thickness adds some bulk to it -- it weighs 2.5 pounds -- but as you'll read later in this review, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

You can order the Tab in three...

How-To: Quickly transfer your old iPhone’s files to...

Transferring files from your old iPhone to a new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus isn’t difficult, but after a reader emailed about the many, many hours he expected to wait for the old-to-new iPhone transfer process to complete, I realized that his experience has become more common — even though it’s not necessary. Years ago, iTunes was the only (and fairly straightforward) way to transfer one iPhone’s contents to another. But now, between iCloud, larger device capacity sizes, and iTunes encryption options, there are certainly ways to turn a simple process into a day-long ordeal.

This quick How-To guide is designed to save you a wasted day by helping you select the best options in iTunes and get most of the work done ahead of time. I’ve used this process more times than I can count, and beyond working perfectly each time, it...

9to5Mac has obtained details about Apple’s launch plans for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on September 25th. Like previous years, Apple expects long lines for the new iPhone debut so has prepared a plan to help the process go smoothly …

On the big day, Apple will once again close normal Genius Bar appointment services to dedicate as many people as possible, about 50% of specialists and Geniuses, to iPhone sales. Other initiatives like Personal Training will also be shut down for the launch period.

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus reportedly get 2GB RAM upgrade

The iPhone needed a RAM upgrade, and it’s no surprise that it finally got one. The 6s and 6s Plus now pack 2GB of onboard RAM, a boost from 1GB in last year’s models, according to some digging from developer Hamza Sood.

Not much of a surprise but Xcode confirms 2GB of RAM for the 6s (and 6s plus), and 4GB for the iPad Pro

— Hamza Sood (@hamzasood) September 13, 2015

That number isn’t official until we have hardware to take apart, because Apple doesn’t dive too deeply into tech specs, but Sood figured out the RAM total by running an iOS simulator in Xcode. He also confirmed the iPad Pro’s 4GB of RAM, accidentally...

"Steve Jobs Headshot 2010-CROP" by Matthew Yohe. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons

History, as Steve Jobs had written it, has the Apple co-founder battling against a hostile board of directors and then-CEO John Sculley before being fired and heading off to found NeXT. That bit of common folklore has been refuted by Sculley, who earlier this year said "Steve was never fired. He took a sabbatical and was still chairman of the board. He was down, no one pushed him, but he was off the Mac, which was his deal - he never forgave me for that." Now Steve Wozniak has added fuel to the fire by posting a similar comment on Facebook.

On the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus announcement day, Apple increased the pricing of its AppleCare+ protection plan from $99 to $129.

Since the launch of the Apple Watch earlier this year, Apple offered combined packages that allowed a customer to protect both devices on a single plan. Now, customers must purchase both plans separately. The combined packages did not bring any discount or value over purchasing the plans separately, so the discontinuation of the program does not come as a...

While the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s on some U.S. carriers is still available for delivery on the September 25th launch date, nearly all of the larger, 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus models are now scheduled to deliver in 3-4 weeks for new orders. According to KGI Securities, this is not entirely due to high demand for the largest iPhone model. According to a new note from the firm, the constraints are actually due to supply problems with the 6s Plus’s backlight hardware:

We believe Radiant is receiving rush orders, because Minebea is having production issues. This tells us that Radiant is more skilled at producing backlight module for 6S Plus given its accumulated abundant experience supplying the backlight...

Confirmed: 2GB RAM in new iPhones, 4GB in iPad Pro

Image via @hamzasood on Twitter

It looks like the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPad Pro will all come with a heapin' helpin' of RAM. Thanks to developer Hamza Sood, who cleverly figured out a way to get the Xcode iOS simulator to display RAM amounts, it appears that the new iPhones will come with 2GB of RAM (double the amount in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus) and the iPad Pro will have 4GB of RAM available (twice the RAM of the iPad Air 2).

Sood ran a small test application that contained three images that are included or excluded dynamically based on RAM available in a device. The app was run in the iOS simulator, which should produce results identical to those seen when running the app on a real device. 

We'll have to wait until iFixit does teardowns of the new iPhones and iPad Pro to see if Apple chose to switch to LPDDR4 RAM instead of the LPDDR3 RAM used in the current top-of-the-line devices. If so, that would make the memory in the devices a bit faster than...

While it may not be the most popular app outside of publishing and creative circles, the AdSense app has today been updated with support for Native iPhone 6 and 6 Plus resolution, Material Design, and more.

Rounding out the update is support for Hindi and Malay, a new icon for the Home Screen, more metrics, and a today center widget. The last of these, in case you aren’t aware, is a new widget for the Today section of Notification Center. On it, you’ll find four metrics for quick access: Today so far, Page views, Clicks, and Page RPM. It also tells you when the widget was last updated.

This is pretty clever.

Developer Hamza Sood was able to use asset catalogs associated with the Xcode 7 Golden Master to confirm the rumors around the iPhone 6s and iPad Pro RAM specifications.

Need to track down a missing iPhone? The Duet can do...

I have a friend whose iPhone is always running away and hiding. At least that's what my friend says. The more jaded among might claim that she's the one who misplaces it, drops in a glass of water, and, well, you get the idea.

My friend needs Protag's US$29.99 Duet, a Bluetooth device designed to help you keep track of your smartphone. It automatically alerts you when your phone gets outside a 32-foot range of the device.

The Duet is compatible with both iOS and Android devices. It's a small tag that attaches to your keychain, bag, wallet — or slips into your pocket.

The Duet works both ways. Thanks to an app that you can download from the Apple App store, the Duet goes beyond a range of 32 feet from the phone that's with you, the phone will sound a notification that the Duet is missing. You can track up to 10 Duets from one phone, which is very handy for a multi-iPhone...

Apple says it's on pace to beat last year's iPhone first-weekend record. Apple shares rose in premarket trading following the announcement.

Forget the Apple Car, I want my Apple Jetpack

Forget the Apple Car. I want an Apple Jetpack. According to CNET, Google X, the search giant's secret lab, once considered making a jetpack, but abandoned it due to a lack of practicality such as a too much noise and too little power.

Time for Apple to step up and show Google how it's done. Imagine the 2017 Worldwide Developer Conference when Tim Cook jet-packs onto the stage for the keynote. All that "he's no Steve Jobs" talk would vanish forever. 

Jony Ive could certainly come up with a breath-taking design. As for the battery life issue, that is a problem. But look at all the progress Apple has made with batteries in its iDevices and laptops. Heck, maybe Apple could buy Tesla, the electric car company (as the rumor mill has long claimed would happen), and take advantage of its battery advancements.

The company offers free extended warranties on the electronic items it sells, ranging from two years for small items to five years for TVs. The Apple Watch is likely to be offered with the same two-year warranty as iPads.

Although EU law declares that almost all products sold in the UK have to be offered with a minimum two-year warranty, and some have successfully used this to make claims from Apple Stores after the company’s own one-year warranty has expired, it’s always likely to be less hassle claiming from a company that explicitly promises it.

The news follows shortly after...

Google’s Eric Schmidt makes thinly-veiled attack on...

Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google parent company Alphabet, has made a thinly-veiled attack on Apple Music in a BBC op-ed on artificial intelligence. He described human-curated music selections as a decade out of data and an elitist approach.

A decade ago, to launch a digital music service, you probably would have enlisted a handful of elite tastemakers to pick the hottest new music.

Today, you’re much better off building a smart system that can learn from the real world – what actual listeners are most likely to like next – and help you predict who and where the next Adele might be … ...

Video: All four colors of Apple’s new iPhone...

Alongside Apple’s announcement of the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, it also released a new official Lightning Dock to sit the phones in. Unlike Apple’s previous version of this dock which was made entirely of plastic, these new docks are aluminum and color-matched to the Space Grey, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold finishes of the new iPhone 6s. YouTuber DetroitBORG has a full walkthrough video of all the new docks in action …

The dock is quite simple, a metal stump with a protruding Lightning Connector, but does the job well. The bumper between the dock and the connector gives some spacing which means the dock is compatible with...

The Xsan website claims complete interoperability[3] with the StorNext File System: "And because Xsan is completely interoperable with Quantum’s StorNext File System, you can even provide clients on Windows, Linux, and other UNIX platforms with direct Fibre Channel block-level access to the data in your Xsan-managed storage pool."[4]

Xsan file system uses several logical storages to distribute information. The two main classes of information appear on Xsan: the user data (such as files) and the file system metadata (such as folders, file names, file allocation information and so on). Most configurations use different storages for data and metadata. The file system supports dynamic expansion and distribution of both data and metadata areas.

Xsan is based on the StorNext File System made by Quantum Corporation.[2] The StorNext File System and the Xsan file system share the same file system layout and the same protocol when talking to the meta data server. They also seem to share a common code base or very close development based on the new features developed for both file systems.

Apple Figures Out Where Steve Jobs Got It Wrong

My big takeaway last week, when Apple launched the iPad Pro, was this: Apple just admitted Bill Gates was right and Steve Jobs was wrong. You see, years ago Steve Jobs went on about how the early Windows tablet, which was designed for work and had a stylus, was stupid. Steve was not a fan and pretty much dissed the entire tablet idea and then again dissed the whole idea of a stylus when he launched the iPhone. Well, Tim Cook effectively gave Jobs a royal raspberry with the iPad Pro, which is basically the Apple version of the Windows tablet.

Xcode’s iOS simulator reports 2GB RAM for iPhone 6S...

Developer Hamza Sood built a demo app that would display the amount of memory reported by difference iDevice simulators.

Hamza Sood

Apple doesn't talk much about its SoCs beyond basic "chip X is Z percent faster than chip Y" comparisons—this is unfortunate, since Apple's new chips are typically as fast or faster than the best high-end chips from Qualcomm and Intel when they're released. One place where Apple has historically been stingy, though, is RAM. Even last year's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus shipped with 1GB of memory, at a time when comparable Android phones were shipping with 2 or 3GB.

That may be changing for the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, according to some sleuthing by developer...

Hamza Sood has cleverly used asset catalogs with the Xcode 7 GM to confirm the rumors around the iPhone 6s and iPad Pro RAM specifications. It confirms that the iPhone 6s has 2 GB of RAM, up from 1 GB in the iPhone 6, and the iPad Pro has 4 GB RAM, a 100% increase from the 2 GB in the iPad Air 2’s A8X chip.

Not much of a surprise but Xcode confirms 2GB of RAM for the 6s (and 6s plus), and 4GB for the iPad Pro

Opinion: It’s time to give movies and TV shows the...

I don’t plan on subscribing to Apple Music when my free trial of the service runs out. It’s not really something I care to pay $10 a month for. I’m not an avid music listener; I sometimes put some hip hop on in the car, but that’s about it. For me, paying $10 every month for access to a large library of music that I don’t plan to use to the fullest extent just isn’t worth it, and I prefer to own what music I do listen to.

I also hate the idea of subscription software, like Adobe’s current Creative Cloud offering. Like my music, I’d rather own my software outright than pay a monthly fee to have access to it. The same is true for just about every other subscription service that’s out there.

So it might surprise you to find out that I think Apple should get into the TV and movie subscription business. What’s more, I’d be willing to pay every single month for access to that service. Why the difference of opinion on this topic? Keep reading and find out.

Can We Trust Apple To Make a Good Games Console?

An anonymous reader writes: The Apple TV took center stage at the company's recent press event. It's getting its own operating system, better support for watching movies and listening to music, and full integration with Siri. All to be expected. But Apple is also pushing for the device to become a hub connecting mobile gaming with your TV. This article questions whether Apple has the chops to become a serious contender in living room gaming. Quoting: "[T]he subtext was clear: Apple thinks it can take on Nintendo for third place in the console market. The problem is, even while it's parading game developers on stage, it's still not clear if Apple actually wants to take on the console market. The inconsistency within the company when it comes to games is painful to see, and shows no sign of abating any time soon. ... The iPhone is the largest games store on the planet, and it's managed by a company whose attitude to the medium is 'go write a book.' That hasn't stopped magnificent art...

Thoughts on the cost of an iPhone

Like clockwork, once a year around this time I join a lot of other Apple geeks in pre-ordering the latest and greatest iPhone. I'm happy with my iPhone 6 Plus, but since I do a lot of photography with my phone -- some of it rivalling or surpassing what can be accomplished with a DSLR -- I wanted to upgrade again.  

I didn't go for Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program, simply because it looked like I would actually have to leave the house and drive to an Apple Store on pickup day, and I didn't feel like hassling with AT&T on changing my plan. For a while I thought about dumping AT&T for a carrier that would pay off my contract to switch, in particular T-Mobile. But instead I finally went the easy but expensive route of purchasing the device outright with "no contract required". 

That got me thinking about how much the iPhone actually costs me each year. In this case, opting for a 64GB iPhone 6s Plus at $849 is counterbalanced a bit by the $330 (or more) I will get...

Rose Gold a hot seller as iPhone 6s preorders start

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus preorders started early Saturday morning, and as usual throngs flocked to Apple’s website to reserve theirs as soon as possible. Despite some reported website glitches, however, customers snapped up the new rose gold iPhone models quickly, pushing shipment dates back for several 6s and 6s Plus configurations.

According to MacRumors, shipping times for 64GB and 128GB Rose Gold 6s Plus models for T-Mobile “slipped to 2-3 weeks very soon after pre-orders began.” A quick look at Apple’s online ordering page for the iPhone Saturday morning suggested that iPhone 6s Plus models are harder to come by than standard 6s models. Most iPhone 6s Plus models won’t ship for at least 2-3 weeks as of this writing, while the lead time for for many Rose Gold 6s Plus configurations now sits at 3-4 weeks.

It’s been a long requested platform and we’re excited to work on it. We want it, our users want it…and we’re anxiously awaiting the tvOS developer beta info, so we can finally dig in.”

Gadget Ogling: All About Apple

A zippier processor and faster Touch ID, LTE, and WiFi feature among the incremental upgrades. There are a couple of interesting new features with this generation, primarily 3D Touch.
