Rumor: Apple to incorporate dark mode into iOS 10

WWDC is just around the corner and with it, some fairly intense speculation as to iOS 10’s user interface has come about.

One rumored concept that’s gotten some attention is the idea of a potential dark mode to be released with the new operating system. As such, a set of concept images has been leaked, the concept showing a system-wide dark mode is depicted in the images, offering up an example of what darker backgrounds would look like in Messages, Mail, Contacts, News, and more.

It’s been speculated that the feature could be set to automatically activate when the sun sets, darkening the entire operating system as is currently done in the Maps app.

The site images a dark mode that would extend to built-in Apple apps and system menus, as well as third-party apps using a potential dark mode API.

The concept...

Instagram 8.2 now supports direct photo sharing from...

Following an update on Monday, Instagram now allows users to share photos and videos directly to Instagram on iOS without having to first launch the app. Instagram version 8.2 includes an iOS extension that lets you share both photos and videos from Photos and other iOS apps directly to Instagram. The feature also lets you write a caption to accompany the photo or video, but filters and other editing features will still require launching the full app.

To enable the new extension, update to the latest version of Instagram, tap the share button and swipe to the far right of the colored app icons then tap ‘More’. Toggle Instagram on, arrange it on the list where you’d like it placed, then tap done. Now Instagram will appear in the share sheet where sharing photos is supported. This...

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

Currents shift certain gems around a rotating path in some stages—plus you’ve got butterflies to contend with.

ReactOS Is a Promising Open Source Windows...


If you want to run a clone of Microsoft Windows to escape the drama of upgrading to Windows 10, try ReactOS -- but do not expect it to be a fully functional replacement. ReactOS is a free, open source operating system built on the design principles found in Windows NT. ReactOS is a Windows clone and not a Linux distro. However, the release last month of version 0.4.1 brings this unique open source project one step closer to its goal of providing users full compatibility with Windows software on a free OS made almost from scratch.

The GhostStand is a scarily good stand for an Apple...

If you have a 12-inch Apple MacBook, you might as well display it with style. One way to do so is with Twelve South’s GhostStand.

The $34.99 stand elevates the tiny laptop to a more comfortable viewing angle — around six inches off a desk. This makes it handy for pairing the MacBook with a keyboard and mouse if (unlike me) you use it as your main computer. 

My 12-inch MacBook sits on is GhostStand next to its big brother, a 27-inch iMac.

 

The folks at Twelve South say the GhostStand makes it appear your laptop is levitating. That’s a bit of hyperbole, but it does facilitate a “lighter than air” atmosphere. Plus, its two sets of soft silicon rails will keep your MacBook from sliding off. 

However, when you’re ready to go (and you didn’t buy Apple’s tiniest laptop to leave it at the home or office, did you?), just unplug your power cable and any USB-C cords,...

WWDC wish list: Predicting the next version of OS X

Not many people get a new computer every single year, but now that Apple has OS X on a yearly update cycle, our computers can feel refreshed and renewed while we bide our time waiting for new MacBook Pros or MacBook Airs.

New features add convenience and speed up tasks we do all the time, and developers can get new tools to delight us with their own apps too. This year’s WWDC keynote is bound to hold some surprises, and here’s what we could see in the next OS X—er, excuse me, MacOS. Or whatever it’s called.

Siri is on our iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, and even the Apple TV—hopefully this is the year Apple’s personal assistant makes the jump to the Mac. We’ve been jealous of Cortana (and its...

Future Phones May Use Vacuum Tube Chips As Silicon...

An anonymous reader writes: A team of researchers want to replace transistors with vacuum tubes. Vacuum tubes are nothing new, however the ones in development at Caltech's Nanofabrication Group are a million times smaller than the ones in use 100 years ago. "Computer technologies seem to work in cycles," Alan Huang, a former electrical engineer for Bell Laboratories, told the New York Times. "Some of the same algorithms that were developed for the last generation can sometimes be used for the next generation." Dr. Axel Scherer, head of the Nanofabrication Group, said to the New York Times on Sunday, "Ten years ago, silicon transistors could meet all our demands. In the next decade, that will no longer be true." He argues silicon transistors can only take us so far. Vacuum tubes, for comparison, use tiny metal tubes that can control the flow of electricity. They're especially intriguing to researchers as they can provide a better solution to silicon transistors as they can consume...

Apple Daily Report for June 6, 2016

The AWT News Update is on hiatus while my compadre, Steve, takes a road trip. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

Alexa, Siri, Cortana, and OK Google are all hot names in tech right now. Digital assistants powered by artificial intelligence are the next big thing for Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, and Google. Consumers however, might not be as excited. Creative Strategies set out to understand more about how consumers are using these agents as well as how they feel about them.

Apple has rolled out new ads for Apple Music, featuring record producer, label executive, and musician DJ Khaled. The ads, which aired following the Apple Music launch of DJ Khaled and Drake's new track "For Free," feature DJ Khaled with Naomi Campbell and Ray Liotta.

A survey by Creative Strategies found that while almost all American iPhone users have at least tried Siri, only 3% have ever used it in public. The firm expresses surprise at the apparent reason for this.

With public usage as low as 3% for iPhone users, it seems users are still uncomfortable talking to their devices. Even more fascinating is this happens in the US where consumers are accustomed to talking loudly on phones in public.

Highest usage of Siri was, unsurprisingly, in the car, where it hit 62%. Use at home averaged 39% across all the voice assistants surveyed, falling to just 1.3% at work where both the embarrassment factor and a desire not to disturb others likely combine …

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve always had an appreciation for fine wood, which is why I’m a big fan of the products from Grovemade, a designer of handcrafted wooden and leather accessories. In March the company introduced newly redesigned trays for Apple’s latest versions of the Magic Keyboard and Trackpad, so now my desktop set-up is complete.

The desk trays — as classy as Grovemade’s other products — are crafted to complement the iconic profile of the Apple accessories, and feature ergonomically designed, slim profiles. They’re available in domestic Eastern Hardrock Maple or Black Walnut and lined with cork to protect your desk while keeping the Magic Keyboards and Trackpads from sliding about. The desk trays join the Monitor Stand ($119) and Mouse Pad ($99) on my desk, and I love the way they look.

Total War: Fall of the Samurai for Mac OS X has an...

By J. Eric Anderson

The 19th century proved to be one of the most turbulent times in the history of the Japanese Empire. After the events of Total War: Shogun 2, Japan enjoyed a prosperous 200 years of peace. That changes with Total War: Fall of the Samurai ($39.99, from Feral Interactive) for Mac OS X 10.9.5 and higher.

Though the emperor had nominal sovereignty, the shoguns held the true power, and were responsible for the meaningful governance of the nation. Seeking to maintain the cultural integrity of Japan, virtually all involvement with the outside world was strictly forbidden; Japanese citizens weren't allowed to leave the country, and foreigners seeking to enter unbidden were met with violence. 

This lasted until an American fleet arrived and forced a trade agreement at gunpoint after bombarding a populous port city. The resulting torrent of foreign...

That’s less compelling for WWDC attendees, who will be most interested in the app’s maps of the venues and a schedule of events. For Apple developers not attending WWDC, though, the app will provide live streams of sessions and the Apple TV support will make watching easier to do in the living room. Considering the number of developers who don’t win the WWDC ticket lottery, we’re glad to see Apple improving the experience of not being there for those who can’t make it.

Compromise said to be likely in India, providing go-...

Times of India is reporting that a compromise is likely to be reached that will allow Apple to proceed with plans to open retail stores in the country despite rules that currently prevent this. If confirmed, it will be an important step for Apple in what Tim Cook expects to become a huge growth market over time.

I sort of view India as where China was seven to ten years ago from that point of view. I think there’s a really great opportunity there.

 

There are currently no official Apple Stores in India because of a rule that requires companies to manufacture at least 30% of their products within the country before they can open a single-brand...

How to stamp out butt dialing

Has this ever happened to you: Your iPhone SPONTANEOUSLY MADE A PHONE CALL FOR NO APPARENT REASON? Friends say, "I'm returning your call," EVEN THOUGH YOU KNOW YOU DIDN'T CALL THEM? You see phone numbers in your Recent Calls list BUT YOU KNOW YOU DIDN'T DIAL THEM?  

If any of these things has happened to you, I'm pretty sure I know why. And, I'm also pretty sure I know a habit that will eliminate spontaneous iPhone dialing (aka butt-dialing) forever.  

The reason it happens, you see, is that you almost certainly didn't lock your phone before you stuck it into your pocket, purse, pack, cup holder, or whatever. With an unlocked phone it's far too easy to accidentally dial or redial a phone number without knowing. 

The reason I'm relatively certain that's why your iPhone is making those calls is that I forced myself to adopt a new habit of pressing my iPhone's Lock button religiously before stashing it in my pocket (or anywhere else). I rarely forget to...

India’s government expected to allow Apple to open...

The Indian government is expected to allow Apple to open its own retail outlets in the country without any sourcing requirement for two-to-three years as it tries to work out an arrangement under which the company will agree to local purchases once it gets a stronger toehold in the country, reports the Times of India

Quoting unnamed sources, the TOI says discussions have already kicked off between the finance ministry and the department of industrial policy and promotion (DIPP) and the option of allowing Apple stores without sourcing requirements in the initial years has been floated. This follows the finance ministry's rejection of a DIPP-led panel's recommendation to do away with the sourcing requirement for Apple on the grounds that the company sold products that had "cutting-edge technology.”

No question about it—the popularity of 360-degree video and imagery is exploding, and it’s no coincidence that the new boom arrives smack-dab in the middle of 2016’s virtual reality revolution. Today, anyone can view 360-degree images and video in a browser, smartphone, tablet, or headset, and YouTube’s 360-degree Videos Channel and Facebook’s 360 community have become major destinations for immersive and streaming content.

Online retailer Amazon.com advanced to No. 4 from No. 17. Rounding out this year’s top five: Nike, which moved from ninth place in 2015.

Bose QuietComfort noise-cancelling headphones go...

Bose’s famous QuietComfort 25 active noise-cancelling headphones are going cordless in the form of the company’s new QuietComfort 35s. But in a market already awash with wireless ANC cans, is the effort too little too late to grab the attention of music-loving/cord-hating aficionados? Having had the opportunity to spend a short amount of hands-on time with them last week at a media event in New York City, we think they have a fighting chance.

Comfortable, lightweight, and offering a welcome amount of sound separation and warm bass at all volume levels, the QC35 sound pretty agreeable. Similar in looks and heft to the company’s iconic QC25s, Bose’s QuietComfort 35 headphones are a cushy over-the-ear affair available in black or silver. They utilize four separate microphones and an ANC chipset to block out a massive amount of external noise—at least under the controlled conditions that we were allowed to listen to them in. Our full review of the QC35s will be available later...

Cartography comparison: Google Maps & Apple Maps

While O’Beirne “designed and led the development of Apple’s cartography” and therefore might be considered biased, this is nonetheless a (very) long and interesting discussion of the differences and similarities of the two apps. I’m directionally-challenged so these kinds of discussions are really interesting to me. I still prefer a dedicated GPS device but occasionally need to use one of several iOS apps in order to find my way around and can see some huge differences in the way these two apps present information.

Enjoy Instagram’s reverse-chronological timeline while you can, because it’s about to go away for good. In a blog post published late last week, Instagram announced that it will start to roll out a new algorithmic feed to its users “over the coming month.” 

The new algorithmic feed, which Instagram first announced back in March, will attempt to identify the things you’re most interested in and put those posts at the top of your feed. According to Instagram, users “miss 70 percent of their feeds” on average. The new feed tries to address this—you might not see more of your feed, the thinking goes, but at least you’ll see the things you’ll want to see.

If it wasn’t clear already, Facebook would really like it if you used its Messenger app.

TechCrunch reported Friday that the company is currently working to remove the Messenger function on the mobile version of its website, pushing users instead to use the separate Facebook Messenger app.

According to the report, tapping the chat button in the toolbar may result in a message informing you that “your conversations are moving to Messenger,” and that “soon you’ll only be able to view your messages from Messenger.” You can dismiss this notice, TechCrunch notes—at least for now.

It looks as though the push to Messenger will be in stages: When I checked Facebook via the mobile app, I got prompted to install Messenger, but I wasn’t warned that I would soon be required to use the Facebook Messenger app. According to...

How-To: Drive a 4K display at 60 Hz on the 2016...

The 2016 MacBook is capable of driving a 4K display at 60 Hz via a single USB-C cable. Such a feat is achievable via an easy-to-apply IOKit patch.

One of the great things about the new Intel hardware inside of the 2016 MacBook is that it’s capable of supporting 4K resolution at 60 Hz. The jump in refresh is a big deal, as anyone who’s tried to put up with running a 30 Hz refresh rate can attest to.

Operating at 30 Hz results in jerky and choppy cursor movement, and in some cases can induce headaches after prolonged use.

Sadly, the MacBook only supports 30 Hz out of the box for 4K resolution. It’s not immediately clear as to why this is, but on its support page, Apple makes it known that 4K resolution is limited to 30 Hz.

The good news is that it is possible to enable 60 Hz at native 4K resolution and 1080p (HiDPI/Retina) resolution on a 2016 MacBook. In fact, I just did so on the ...

IBM Has Been Awarded An Average Of 24 Patents Per...

Traditional companies continue to score a huge number of patents, reports Quartz. The publication deep dived into the patent filings to find which company has been awarded the most number of patents this year. According to its finding, IBM has been awarded 3,617 patents so far this year, whereas Samsung comes close with 3,032 patents during the same period. Behind these giants sit Google with 1,530 patents, Intel with 1,293, Qualcomm with 1,262, Microsoft with 1,232, and Apple with 1,060 patents. From the report: Although IBM's patent-producing power slowed somewhat in 2015, the number of patents it's received so far this year is up more than 13% compared to a year earlier. The company is in the middle of a painful reinvention, that sees the company shifting further away from hardware sales into cloud computing, analytics, and AI services. It's also plugging away on a myriad of fundamental scientific research projects -- many of which could revolutionize the world if they can come...

Apple’s share of the U.S. K-12 market has fallen to new lows, according to data released by researcher Futuresource Consulting. iPads accounted for only 17% of institutional educational purchases in the first quarter of 2016, while Mac laptops accounted for only 4%. In 2013, iPads accounted for nearly 40% of K-12 institutional purchases. 

"Apple's numbers are down. Sales to education are declining," Mike Fisher, Futuresource analyst, told Business Insider (http://www.businessinsider.com/ipad-sales-hit-lowest-point-in-educationa...). "As the market has matured, I think Apple's approach to the educational market probably needs to change a little bit."

Banking Trojans Take Backseat to Ransomware


The banking trojan -- a type of malware used to steal credentials for bank accounts -- has been a staple of cyberthieves for years. However, ransomware, which has proven both easy to use and highly successful, has started eroding its popularity. In a typical banking trojan attack, a robber mounts a phishing campaign to entice a target to open an attachment or click on a link that delivers the malware to the victim's computer. The thief then leverages it to obtain banking credentials and make withdrawals from the mark's account.

Review: LG’s USB-C-enabled 4K Monitor lends single...

If you’re looking for a 4K display that can be paired with your 12″ MacBook via a single USB-C cable, then your options are fairly limited. It seems that LG is one of the few display makers that has such a monitor available for sale.

LG’s 27UD88-W is a 27″ USB-C-enabled display. Its USB-C port allows MacBook owners to connect a single cable to drive the display, charge the machine, and facilitate data transfer.

As I alluded to in my recent 2016 MacBook post, the 27UD88-W isn’t perfect, but it’s one of the only games in town if you desire a 4K monitor with USB-C connectivity in tow.

If you’re a MacBook owner, should you consider purchasing one? Have a look inside for the details. more…
