The Week in iPad Cases: Interested in what’s out... sleeves, keyboard cases, and more!

This week’s roundup of new iPad cases features a revamped version of Apple’s Smart Cover, a functional all-in-one bag from Waterfield Designs, and freshly-announced options from Speck, Case Logic, Zagg, and more—with plenty of options for Apple’s latest iPad models.


Apple just released a new Smart Cover (iPad mini 4; $39) that’s specifically for the iPad mini 4. (Since the iPad mini 4 is significantly thinner than older versions of the iPad mini, your existing Smart Cover may not work properly with Apple’s newest member of the family.)

If you didn’t catch the introduction of the iPad Mini 4 at Apple’s product event earlier this month, don’t feel bad. The company announced the new tablet so quickly and with so little detail (and had so few of them available for press to play with afterward) that you could have sneezed and missed it.

Not that it isn’t understandable; the iPad Mini 4 is just one member of Apple’s third-highest-grossing product family, and there was...

Apple has stepped up to pledge money to ease the European refugee crisis.

According to Reuters, a message from Apple CEO Tim Cook posted on the company’s internal website on Friday announced that Apple would match all employee donations 2-to1. These donations will go directly to relief agencies helping the refugees in Europe. The iPhone maker is also soliciting donations from Apple customers to the Red Cross via its iTunes Store and App Stores.

In 2015 alone, almost half a million refugees have fled from civil war-torn Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Lybia, Afghanistan, Nigeria and other countries in crisis to seek asylum in Europe. Making it Europe’s most dire refugee situation since World War II.

Blue Origin Rockets Into Cape Canaveral

Blue Origin on Tuesday announced plans to launch rockets from a Cape Canaveral launchpad, which it has leased from NASA. "The site saw its last launch in 2005, and the pad has stood silent for more than 10 years -- too long. We can't wait to fix that," said Blue Origin CEO Jeff Bezos, who is also the founder of Amazon. It's the sort of thing the folks at NASA like to hear. People are interested in space again, and a reboot of the space race is playing out between two of the commercial spaceflight industry's top players.

Peace ad-blocker app pulled, developer offers...

One of the top apps on the App Store was just rescinded by its developer.

Developer Marco Arment has just pulled the Peace ad-blocker application from the App Store. Arment went on to offer the following explanation via his web site:

I’ve pulled Peace from the App Store. I’m sorry to all of my fans and customers who bought this on my name, expecting it to be supported for longer than two days. It’ll keep working for a long time if you already have it, but with no updates.

If you want a refund, here’s how you do that.

As I write this, Peace has been the number one paid app in the U.S. App Store for about 36 hours. It’s a massive achievement that...

How to Turn iOS 9’s Keyboard Back to All Caps

iOS 9’s keyboard has a big change: the alphabetic key caps change case — they’re lowercase when typing lowercase, uppercase when Shift or Caps Lock is engaged. Android and Windows Phone keyboards have always done this.

I don’t like it, and I’m not alone.

The good news: You can turn this off and go back to the way the keyboard was meant to be, with all caps alphabetic keys all the time. The confusing part: For some reason, the setting for this is not in Settings: General: Keyboard. Instead, it’s in Settings: General: Accessibility: Keyboard.

Some people love this feature, so it’s great that it’s a setting. I dislike it because having the keys change automatically while I’m looking at the keyboard makes it look like it’s vibrating or flickering. I spent a week with the case-shifting enabled this summer (...

48 hours after launch, iOS 9 adoption rate surpasses...

One of the amazing things about Apple controlling the hardware and software in its ecosystem is just how fast a new operating system can spread. Mixpanel's data shows that this morning, iOS 9 adoption reached 21.24 percent and it's still climbing. That's after only 48 hours of availability to the public.

By comparison, let's look at the sad, fragmented Android world. Android 5.0 (which arrived on November 13, 2014) and Android 5.1 (March 9, 2015) together as "Android Lollipop" make up 21 percent of the Android world.

What does this mean in practical terms? That almost a quarter of all iOS users are able to take advantage of the latest features of iOS 9 in just two days, while after ten months, the vast majority -- 79 percent -- of Android users are still using an...

On Wednesday, Marco Arment launched an iOS 9 ad blocker called Peace. But it didn’t bring him enough peace, and so on Friday he pulled it from the App Store. It’ll keep working for people who already bought it, but he isn’t planning to update it anymore.

Anyone interested in a refund can visit Log in with the Apple ID you use to make purchases, click Apps in the toolbar to filter to just your app purchases, click “Report a Problem” next to your purchase of Peace, and fill out the form.

No Peace

This is a surprising move, since Peace had actually taken the No. 1 spot on the App Store’s paid charts. That means for the last 36 hours it had outsold perennially popular apps like Minecraft, Angry Birds, Dark Sky, and Sleep Clock. At $3 a pop (before Apple’s 30 percent cut), Arment must have walked away with a pretty decent...

How to update to watchOS 2... whenever that may...

Apple Watch owners have been anxious to get their hands on watchOS 2, which was pulled at the last minute on Wednesday (September 16) because of bugs that were apparently taking longer to fix than expected. On the off chance that it happens today, or perhaps over the weekend when the AWT team is resting up for the iPhone 6s unboxing next Friday, here is how to update to watchOS 2. watchOS updates are done in a different manner from what we're used to with iOS and OS X updates, so here's what to expect.

Prep work

OK, so the Twitter feeds start lighting up with "OMG watchOS 2 is here!" tweets. Here's how to get started:

  1. Make sure your iPhone has been updated to iOS 9
  2. Make sure that your iPhone and Apple Watch are talking to each other (simple way to do that -- just bring your iPhone over to your Watch charger)
  3. Check the charge level on your Watch and make sure it has at least a 50 percent charge. To check, just swipe up...

iPad Mini 4 teardown: Shrunken battery, double RAM

With the iPad Mini 4, Apple is continuing its trend of downsizing the battery without downgrading battery life.

That’s one of the main takeaways from iFixit’s teardown of the iPad Mini 4 . Apple’s latest 7.9-inch tablet uses a 5,124 mAh single-cell battery, compared to a 6,471 mAh double-cell battery on the iPad Mini 3. Despite the size difference, Apple still promises the same 10-hour battery on Wi-Fi model, and 9 hours on cellular networks.

Apple meets with California DMV, hinting that public...

Apple met with California’s Department of Motor Vehicles in August to discuss self-driving vehicles, which means an Apple-branded electric car might be closer to hitting the road than previously expected.

The Guardian caught wind of the meeting from DMV documents, and confirmed with the department’s officials that “the Apple meeting was to review DMV’s autonomous vehicle regulations.”

The California DMV doesn’t exactly have self-driving car regulations, but it’s working to establish guidelines manufacturers to follow before releasing their autonomous cars to the public. As you can imagine, a self-driving car needs to be rigorously tested and undergo safety certifications before it hits the streets. According to The Guardian, the California DMV missed its early 2015 deadline for drafting the regulations, but the department is issuing...

Appeals Court Bans Features From Older Samsung Phones

walterbyrd writes with news that Apple has finally emerged victorious in a long-standing patent case against Samsung — though it's more of a moral victory than a practical one. Samsung is no longer allowed to sell some of its older phones unless the company disables features that infringe upon Apple patents. "The market impact will likely be limited, since the lawsuit was filed in 2012 and covers products that came out that year, like the Galaxy S3. Furthermore, software updates to Samsung software mean that the patents may not be infringed anymore. For instance, Samsung's Android phones no longer use a 'slide to unlock' feature on the bottom of the phone. In dissent, U.S. Circuit Judge Sharon Prost paints a sharply different picture (PDF) from the majority. 'This is not a close case,' she writes, noting that Apple's patents cover a spelling correction feature it doesn't use, and two others cover 'minor features' out of 'many thousands.'"

The cool cats at iFixit just tore into the newly-released iPad mini 4 and found that it’s essentially the iPad Air 2 components squeezed into a smaller form factor.

The new tablet uses the iPad Air 2’s fully laminated screen technology, which lends itself to a thinner design. The glass and display are adhered together, giving it a more rigid design and making screen repairs more difficult. iFixit also notes that the iPad mini has retained a battery design that makes it easy to disconnect, unlike the battery found in the larger iPads. Another small similarity between the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 is that the Touch ID cable is now integrated directly into...

What to play this weekend: Super Happy Fun Block

I spent last weekend at the Boston Festival of Indie Games and played many super games. A real standout was Super Happy Fun Block (universal, $2.99), a side-scrolling puzzle game that's cute, fun and challenging. Its hero is a bulbous little guy you can't help but root for as you guide him from puzzle to puzzle, building and destroying as you go. Here's our look at indie gem, Super Happy Fun Block.


Super Happy Fun Block (let's call it SHFB) is a side-scroller with some puzzles tossed in. It's got a fun, hand-drawn look that reminds me of the stuff I scribbled in notebooks while bored to tears in sixth grade. It reminds me of the charming (and now defunct) Parachute Panic. The main character has a few cute facial expressions to watch out for, too. Note when...

All of the proceeds from donations are sent to the American Red Cross. Donation levels include $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, and $200.

The department wouldn't comment on what was discussed at the August meeting, beyond saying that “the Apple meeting was to review [the] DMV’s autonomous vehicle regulations.”

The good news is that iOS 9 works on much of Apple's existing hardware. If your device can run iOS 8, it should be able to run iOS 9. However, some of the software's features are available only on the newest iOS devices -- the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and the iPad Pro. I installed the new OS on all of my Apple devices without much of a hitch. Apple Pay fans will find this version of iOS very friendly.

We need better game controllers for the Mac

At its 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference Apple held a session about support for dedicated third-party gaming controllers for iOS devices as part of its MFi Program (“Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad”). At the time I thought it might mean better game controller support for the Mac, but so far that hasn't happened.

Many of us have a games console (or two) at home and love the use of joysticks, gamepads, etc. They’re easy to use. Hardcore computer gamers say that nothing beats the precision of a keyboard and mouse, but some of us prefer a dedicated game controller.

It is possible to use PlayStation and Xbox controllers with your Mac. However, you’ll have to use software such as Joystick Mapper, GamePad, etc. As useful as these utilities are, they can be cumbersome to set up, as they involve installing software, configuring keystrokes to a particular game controller, and more.

Wouldn’t it be nice if Macs came with built-in game...

NFL Commentators Still Calling Microsoft's...

AmiMoJo writes: Back in 2013, Microsoft inked a $400 million deal with the NFL to promote the Surface. Unfortunately for Microsoft, commentators and even players couldn't help themselves from referring to the tablets as iPads. Last year, announcers referred to the Surface as an "iPad-like tablet,", while Chicago Bears quarterback called them "knockoff iPads". It happened on more than one occasion, and while you can bet that Microsoft and the NFL have been in talks with announcers and players about the goof, little progress is being made. This year, the problem persists.

One feature the iPad mini 4 steals from the iPad Air 2 is the fully laminated screen technology, which lends itself to a thinner design. The glass and display are...

Over the past week we've had a number of readers start backing us on Patreon or increase their support for the site. Thanks to them, we now have support coming in at $1,624.49 per month. While that's over double the amount we started with at the end of August, we're still over $1,400 per month below the level needed to keep going. Don't worry -- we're not going to shut down on you!

We're a small site by Apple website standards -- we only get about 60,000 unique visitors a month, while our total page impressions are of course much higher. If just one out of every ten unique visitors -- 10% -- would pay $1 per month or more towards the care and feeding of the bloggers here, we'd be at twice the amount needed to keep going. You do that, and we promise to take every ad off the site. Right now, we're getting support from one out of every 215 readers.

iDevice apps crash a bit more after a switch to an...

When Apple releases an update of its mobile operating system iOS, as it did yesterday with iOS 9, millions of users rush to update their iPhones and iPads. However, we make the switch to the new operating system, we shouldn’t be surprised to see apps (not the operating system itself) crashing more often than we may be accustomed to.

According to data supplied by app intelligence firm Crittercism, app crash rates follow a distinct pattern. When a new iOS version is released, crash rates tend to spike as it takes developers some time to fix errors and fully understand the new OS. After the initial spike, app crash rates quickly return to a normal level and continue to gradually decline as developers get more and more acquainted with the operating system. (The accompanying chart is courtesy of Statistica.)

Apple wants one more shot at clearing its name of e-book antitrust violations.

Having lost a federal court appeal earlier this year, Apple will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a ruling that the company conspired with publishers to fix e-book prices, Fortune reports.

Apple lost its original case in 2013, after being sued by the U.S. Department of Justice along with 33 states and U.S. territories. At the time, U.S. District Court Judge Denise Cote found that Apple broke the law when it convinced five major publishers to adopt the same “agency” pricing model, in which they set their own prices and agreed not to offer lower prices elsewhere. This had the effect of raising some...

Will the IoT Be Held for Ransom?

A perfect cybercrime storm is brewing, and two of the main ingredients are ransomware and the Internet of Things. Cybercrime has become an industry with all the operational trappings of any legitimate sector, McAfee Labs noted earlier this month. It has its own supply chain, market segments, service providers, and finance and trading systems. It has its own business models. On the other hand, the Internet of Things is young, McAfee pointed out. Smart device hacks and data breaches are just beginning to make headlines.

Here's how many users upgraded to iOS 9 on Day 1

It’s been 24 hours since Apple dropped the official release of iOS 9, and the adoption rate of this new operating system is a little more than 12 percent, according to Mixpanel, a third-party mobile analytics firm.

Utilizing data taken from iOS apps using its SDK, Mixpanel has put together a chart of iOS 9 adoption rates versus iOS 8 and older operating systems, updated hourly. As of 10:00 a.m. Pacific on Thursday—exactly 24 hours after iOS 9 was released—the adoption rate for Apple’s latest version of iOS was 12.54 percent. Meanwhile, 80.23 percent of iOS devices currently run iOS 8, with that figure slowly declining as iOS 9 adoption continues to climb. And according to Mixpanel’s chart, only 7.23 percent of iOS devices are running  iOS 7 or earlier versions.

An anonymous reader writes: Apple today launched Move to iOS, the company's first Android app built in-house. As we noted earlier, "It should surprise no one that the first app Apple built for Android helps you ditch the platform." The fact that the app is getting flooded with one-star reviews is not particularly surprising, either. At the time of publication, the app has an average rating of 1.8. The larger majority (almost 79 percent) are one-star reviews, followed by five-star reviews (almost 19 percent).

iOS 9 already nearing 12 percent adoption

Despite some early hiccups, iOS 9 has rebounded strongly. According to Mixpanel’s data, it’s already nearing 12% adoption, less than 24 hours after its debut. (Mixpanel is an analytics platform for mobile and web devices.)

According to founder and CEO, Suhail Doshi, that’s faster than iOS 8. He thinks one of the big reasons is the download size. iOS 9 is 3.5x smaller than iOS 8. 

"One huge advantage Apple got right this year over last year was that the update is much smaller than last year," says Doshi. "Apple has empathy for its users who have nearly maxed out the space on their phones. However, one issue for it being substantially slow compared to iOS 7 is that servers are having trouble keeping up right now as people update.”
