Bidding starts Sunday for these Apple sneakers

Image by Heritage Auctions

Last year we posted about a pair of Apple logo'd sneakers that were purchased by an Alabama resident in 2011, and at the time we were all wondering how to get a pair of these rare shoes for ourselves. Well, Heritage Auctions is planning to have an auction this Sunday for a pair of the white leather rainbow-logo sneaks, starting at just $15,000.

Apparently, these shoes were going to be one of the special features in the clothing line that Apple sold briefly in the mid-80s to early 90s, but never made it past the test...

iOS 11’s new ‘Smart Invert Colors’ is the closest...

iOS 11 delivered with a ton of highly-requested features— especially for iPad users— but there’s still one feature missing from the release that many were hoping for. A true “dark mode” to change Apple’s mostly light-coloured user interface like the option it has for menus and the dock on macOS is still absent. But in iOS 11, we get the next best thing with a new feature called “Smart Invert Colors”.

For many, this feature will satisfy their dark mode needs until an official feature is introduced. Here’s how to enable it…

Jason Snell: HomePod first impressions

Jason Snell, Macworld:

Sure, a few of us lucky souls were able to listen to a HomePod at Apple’s developer conference, but nobody outside of Apple has talked to one or picked one up. At the risk of stating the obvious, that’s because this is a product that’s not finished yet. Apple doesn’t want to publicly commit to a feature and then realize it can’t ship it; the product as the company conceives it today may not be the product that ends up in customers’ hands in December.

Lots of detail on what we know and what we still don’t know. Good read.

How the world’s most beautiful typeface was almost...

Hayley Campbell, Buzzfeed:

The history of London can be found in pieces on its riverbed. The old pipes and fossilised horse bones wash up on the shore, and with them come the lead letters that printed that history in the newspapers.

The letters ended up there mostly out of laziness, building up piece by piece over the years that Fleet Street served as the epicentre of British journalism. A typesetter’s job was time-consuming: A page of newspaper was laid out one character at a time, the pieces were put back in their boxes the same way. When the typesetters crossed Blackfriars Bridge on their way home from work they’d toss a pocketful of type over the side rather than bother.

They’re still there. There are thousands of letters slowly rearranging themselves over the years and moods of the mud, like alphabet soup.

This is the story of one of those sunken typefaces and a feud between two longtime friends. Beautifully written and a fascinating bit of design...

Chuq Von Rospach’s take on WWDC

target=”_blank”>here, but this on the Mac Mini stuck out:

And while they even updated the venerable MacBook Air (a bit), the Mac Mini is sitting there in its ancient and increasingly “what about this then?” glory. I have to admit, I can only think of one reason for this: that they still plan to replace the Mac Mini down the road, and that it’ll be done with a lower end version of the Mac Pro. Here’s hoping, because I’d buy that thing in a femtosecond. But for now, the Mac Mini continues to be an enigma of “why is is not updated and still on the price list?” — I’m a little surprised it didn’t get a CPU refresh with everything else here, but I’ll bet our friend the Thermal Limit problem is the reason, and replacing it will require the stuff being done on the Mac Pro. At least, I hope so.

The Mac Mini does have an audience, it’s throw in the suitcase portable, and is Mac Pro-level long in the tooth. Here’s hoping we see a new one sometime soon.

iOS 11 brings Next/Previous Track controls to...

Greg Barbosa, 9to5Mac:

With iOS 11, users will gain the ability to adjust the AirPods’ double-tap action with new control options.

Changing the double-tap functionality on the AirPods is as simple as jumping into the AirPod’s Bluetooth settings. Before iOS 11, users were simply stuck between decided whether the double-tap activated Siri, or Play/Paused audio. On iOS 11, Apple has given more control to the AirPods with the introduction of Next Track, Previous Track, and Off options.

This is a smart add for Apple. I can control volume (something I do rarely) from my Apple Watch, and skip to next track (something I do all the time) directly from my AirPods. Perfect.

Zac Hall, 9to5Mac:

When you pair AirPods to your iPhone, the wireless earbuds are automatically paired to iPads, Macs, and Apple Watches with the same iCloud account thanks to automatic setup. Apple TV has not been included in the devices that automatically pair, however, but that’s changing with tvOS 11.

Starting with the first tvOS 11 developer beta, AirPods appear as a new speaker option automatically on Apple TVs with iCloud accounts connected to iPhones with AirPods paired. This means you can play music or easily listen to video from Apple TV through AirPods without using the TV speakers.

Welcome to the auto-pairing family, Apple TV. Huzzah!

iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra to allow you to type...

Serenity Caldwell, iMore:

When iOS 11 comes out in the fall, users will be able to turn on “Type to Siri” in their accessibility settings, which will let you write your commands to Siri, rather than shout them into space.

As of now, Type to Siri is an accessibility feature: It’s designed for folks who may not be able to speak their queries and need a keyboard (or other switch control-based device) to do so, and a huge boon for them, too.

But even those without need for accessibility features may love this feature — Google’s Assistant offers both a text and type interface, allowing for quick and quiet answers to questions when a typical voice query won’t do, and a similar Siri option should prove very helpful for a variety of folks. The feature will also be available for macOS High Sierra when it launches in the fall, as well.

It’ll be interesting to see if this feature is exposed in other ways. For example, would I be able to write a script in High...

Apple may deny iPhone 8 owners new gigabit data...

iPhone 8 owners may not be able to take advantage of the faster data speeds expected to be available later this year in the USA, says a Bloomberg report, and Apple’s dispute with Qualcomm may be the reason.

AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and other carriers have promised to introduce a new generation of wireless data later in the year, offering speeds as high as a gigabit per second – some fifty times faster than typically available today. But it appears that this speed won’t be supported in the iPhone 8, even if the modems it contains are compatible …

Apple patent hints at increased functionality (and...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170163589) for “sharing of activity metadata via messaging systems” that hints at increased functionality of the Messages app on iOS and macOS devices. However, it also adds the potential for ads appearing in the utility.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads are used for numerous types of communications. For example, a mobile device, such as a smartphone, can facilitate voice communication, web-based communications, and short messaging service (SMS) communications. 

Short messaging service communications (e.g., text messaging or instant messaging services) have become a part of life for many mobile device users. As text messaging services have gained popularity, publishers of content and applications alike have been exploring how to leverage text messaging services to their advantage. 

For example, organizations like CNN and ESPN provide subscription services for users, so that...

Qualcomm, which is currently the only company with a 1-gigabyte modem at the ready. And the two companies are involved in a legal brouhaha involving royalty charges (https://www.appleworld.today/blog/2017/1/20/apple-sues-qualcomm-for-unfa...).

She’ll serve in a senior role at Apple in the growing health team, but will continue to see patients at Stanford, the article adds, quoting “people familiar with the move.” It’s unclear whether she'll oversee Apple's existing efforts, such as its software frameworks, or head up an unannounced project. However, it “demonstrates that Apple is taking its health ambitions seriously,” according to Seeking Alpha.

Apple began accepting online orders for the new MacBook, MacBook Pro, and iMac models on Monday, but delivery estimates currently range between June 12 and June 22 in the United States, so customers looking to purchase a new Mac earlier than next week may have better luck visiting an Apple Store.

Users can use the in-store pickup tool to see which MacBook, MacBook Pro, and iMac models are in stock at assorted Apple Store locations in Canada. Still, it’s recommended that you call ahead to your preferred retail location to see if the computer you want is still in stock.

The refreshed MacBook and MacBook Pro models feature Intel’s seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors, improved Intel and AMD graphics options, and faster SSD storage, while the new iMac models received the same treatment plus Thunderbolt 3 ports and brighter...

iFixit posts teardown of 2017 21.5-inch iMac, finds...

The pork has soared and it looks like Apple has finally released an iMac with a user-upgradable CPU as well as RAM.

The cool cats at iFixit have just completed a full teardown of Apple’s new 21.5-inch iMac with 4K display. The unit features both removable RAM and a modular CPU, although Apple has yet to say if these components are user-replaceable. Accessing and replacing these components isn’t exactly easy, but it’s still possible.

This is the first time Apple has had a 21.5-inch iMac with expandable RAM since 2013, and the first modular CPU since 2012.

No one seems to know exactly why Apple has reverted to a socketed CPU, and perhaps there were lengthy discussions with Intel regarding it.

iFixit offered the following comments regarding the teardown:

Despite the upgradable RAM and CPU, we’re still giving this iMac a 3/10 for repairability. Here’s why: the iMac remains distinctly un-fun to open. Everything is buried under a finicky glass...

Apple adding NFC tags in iOS 11 is a big deal

Apple adding support for Near Field Communication (NFC) tags in iOS 11 means that all iPhone 7 and newer will be able to read NFC tags just like Android.  This means most people owning a smartphone (over two billion in the world) now have an NFC reader available in their pocket to interact with NFC tags anywhere and at any time. 

This is the moment many have been waiting for and signals a fundamental change in the industry and for consumers, according to Paula Hunter, executive director of the NFC Forum. NFC is now a horizontal technology like Bluetooth, WiFfi, cameras. It’s available, free and easy-to-use. How we interact with physical and digital items going forward will change forever.

Teardown of New iMac Reveals Upgradable Processors,...

According to an iFixit teardown, Apple's new 4K 21.5-inch iMac has both removable RAM and a Kaby Lake processor that's not soldered onto the logic board. Whereas the previous models had soldered memory modules, the new iMac's memory sit in two removable SO-DIMM slots. MacRumors reports: iFixit made the discovery by disassembling Apple's $1,299 mid-range 3.0GHz stock option, which includes 8GB of 2400MHz DDR4 memory, a Radeon Pro 555 graphics card with 2GB of VRAM, and a 1TB 5400-RPM hard drive. After slicing through the adhesive that secures the 4K display to the iMac's housing and removing the power supply, hard drive, and fan, iFixit discovered that the memory modules aren't soldered onto the logic board like previous models, but instead sit in two removable SO-DIMM slots. Similarly, after detaching the heatsink and removing the warranty voiding stickers on the backside of the logic board, iFixit found that the Intel SR32W Core i5-7400 Kaby Lake processor sits in a standard LGA...

The gang at iFixIt, which tears apart new products and looks at their innards so you don't have to, got their hands on the refreshed Retina MacBook 2017 and the MacBook Pro 13" Touch Bar 2017, and found that not too much has changed, hardware-wise. 

The only real change, beyond fan coloration, seems to address the lackluster keyboard action from last year’s MacBook, notes the iFixit-ers. Users now inherit the more-responsive, second-gen butterfly key switches already found in last year’s MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

You can find the Retina MacBook 2017 and MacBook Pro 2017 Teardowns by clicking these links, but highlights include:

GarageBand Mac update provides new design, Touch Bar...

GarageBand for Mac was updated today with several new features that make it easier on the eyes, easier to use, and a lot more percussive! 

As seen in the image at the top of the screen and the actual screenshot below, GarageBand 10.2 brings a new modern design, support for the Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro that allows musicians to actually use it to perform on GarageBand instruments, and all sorts of new fun for percussionists. 

The design does seem much more modern and clean; everything from the time counter to the track names are in a new font, and the volume sliders appear to have changed as well.

There are three new drummers -- Pop, Songwriter, and Latin, as long as Drummer Loops. The latter are Apple Loops powered by Drummer that can be customized to play along with a song. 

In addition, there now a way to share projects with GarageBand for iOS; the splash screen above shows that musicians can "remotely add new tracks to your project using...

China Arrests Apple Distributors Who Made Millions...

An anonymous reader shares a report: Police in China's Zhejiang province have arrested 22 (apparently third-party) Apple distributors for allegedly selling iPhone user data. Officials say the workers searched an internal Apple database for sensitive info, such as Apple IDs and phone numbers, and peddled it on the black market for between 10 to 180 yuan with each sale ($1.50 to $26). All told, the distributors reportedly raked in more than 50 million yuan, about $7.36 million, before authorities stepped in.

How to homer

I can identify with this quest. 40lbs ago, I could dunk a basketball; not Jordan-like but I had some hops. I used to be able to throw a perfect spiral 60 yards downfield. Not accurately but with some distance. And I’ve scored my fair share of hockey goals. But I’ve never held a bat in a major league ballpark and “gone yard”. Definitely a bucket list item but, after reading this article and realizing the work it took this guy, I may have to scratch it off as impossible.

The options could include police asking an IT provider or tech company in a member nation to turn over requested data or evidence without going through the official legal channels of the home country.

China uncovers massive underground network of Apple...

Hong Kong Free Press:

Chinese authorities say they have uncovered a massive underground operation run by Apple employees selling computer and phone users’ personal data.

Twenty-two people have been detained on suspicion of infringing individuals’ privacy and illegally obtaining their digital personal information, according to a statement Wednesday from local police in southern Zhejiang province.

And:

Of the 22 suspects, 20 were Apple employees who allegedly used the company’s internal computer system to gather users’ names, phone numbers, Apple IDs, and other data, which they sold as part of a scam worth more than 50 million yuan (US$7.36 million).

The statement did not specify whether the data belonged to Chinese or foreign Apple customers.

The good news is, it looks like this is news about the breaking up of this black market, not simply uncovering it. But the allegation that this was an operation run by Apple employees is, if true, a big...

How to enable screen recording on iOS 11 without a...

Screen recording on iOS isn’t a new feature by any means. There have been both official and unofficial ways of doing so for quite some time. The difference today is that iOS 11 is the first of Apple’s mobile operating systems to introduce screen recording as a built-in feature. We’re only in the first beta stages of iOS 11, so this feature could change or even be revoked before the final release, but it’s a great feature that has been a long time coming. Let’s take a look at how you can enable screen recording on iOS 11, why you would want to, and some recording tips.

Once enabled on your device, screen recording will simply be a swipe and tap away.

Bloomberg reported on Wednesday that Essential, Andy Rubin's new startup, has added $300 million to its war chest as it looks to break into the highly competitive field of consumer electronics. The financing round valued Essential at $900 million to $1 billion, according to an analysis by Equidate, which runs a market for private company stock. In an interview, Rubin, who created Android, shared how the company plans to move forward: "I think when there's this duopoly with these two guys owning 40 percent of the market, this complacency sets in," Rubin said. "And that's the perfect time to start a company with this. Some people are complacent and it needs to be disrupted."

Not only do you get the vicarious thrill of tearing apart (gently...) thousands of dollars worth of electronics each day, but whenever something new arrives on the market you're one of the first people who gets to take it apart piece by piece. The company completed its teardown of the 21.5-inch Retina 4K iMac and there were some noticeable surprises that add to the repairability rating of the desktop computer.

No, there's not a RAM hatch on the back of the smaller iMac like there is on the 27-inch model, but iFixit found that the RAM is socketed and therefore could be upgraded by a user... a user with the right tools with the skills to rip apart an iMac, but...

Independent tests of the main IA systems also tend to bear this out, especially when it comes to personalization. Both Google Home and Amazon Echo have a better understanding than Siri of who we are and what we are likely to want.
