Apple updates MacBook Air with a speed bump

If you blinked you probably missed it during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote last Monday. The Cupertino-based company updated its lowest-priced laptop with a faster processor.

The MacBook Air now has a 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, a bump up from the 1.6GHz dual-core Core i5 that was released over two years ago. The MacBook Air’s processor is a 5th generation Broadwell chip, which is two generations older than the Kaby Lake processors in the new MacBook Pro and MacBook.

Study: nearly 80% of outdated government computers...

BitSight, which specializes in security ratings, has released a new report titled, "A Growing Risk Ignored: Critical Updates," analyzing more than 35,000 companies from industries across the globe over the last year, to better understand the usage of outdated computer operating systems and Internet browsers, the time to it took to update operating systems once a new release was made available, and how these practices correlate to data breaches. 

The data shows that there are large gaps in asset management programs across the globe. And this includes Macs.

Using evidence of security incidents from networks around the world, the BitSight Security Ratings Platform applies algorithms to produce daily security ratings for organizations, ranging from 250 to 900, where higher ratings equate to lower risk. 

To look at the spread of operating systems and Internet browsers, researchers studied over 1.5 billion...

External Link: The iPad’s Comeback Tour?

After a meteoric rise, iPad sales have been plummeting. Apple executives Craig Federighi and Phill Schiller sat down with BuzzFeed to discuss what the company is doing to boost the iPad’s growth, including less-expensive base models, the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and the many iPad-specific features of iOS 11. Some interesting tidbits: it took four years to develop the ProMotion technology in the new iPad Pro, and Apple now likens tablets to crossover vehicles instead of cars.

U.S. personal computer market to grow 2.3% annually...

This should be great news for the Mac (and perhaps the Pad Pro) after this week’s WWDC announcements): the Daniel Research Group, a market research firm specializing in forecasting technology markets, predicts that the personal computer market (in which the firm includes tablets) will grow 2.3% annually over the next five years.

Three key causal factors will influence the total personal computing and communications market over the next five years; a mild economic slow-down in 2019-2020, an acceleration of tablet and desktop replacement rates, and the contraction of the tablet market.

While the Daniel Research Group expects desktop and mobile PC shipments to be slightly down this year (-0.8%) it anticipates healthy growth in 2018 (4.3%) before the economic slow-down moderates growth in 2019-2020 (1.6%, 1.9%), followed by a return to higher growth (4.6%) in 2020 as the economy recovers. Over the same...

Apple patent is for ‘hearing aid compatible audio...

Apple wants its iPhone to work better with hearing aids. The company has been granted a patent (number 9,672,804) for a “hearing aid compatible audio device with acoustic noise cancellation.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes that hearing aids operate in either a microphone (acoustic) mode or a telecoil (inductive) mode. In the microphone mode, sound waves that are incident upon a microphone which is integrated in the hearing aid are converted into an electrical audio signal. In the telecoil mode, an induction coil (also referred to as a telecoil or T-coil), which may also be inside the hearing aid, picks up the local magnetic field that has been modulated by the receiver or a dedicated coil of a nearby telephone handset. 

In telecoil mode, hearing aids typically turn-off their internal microphone and only receive audio that has been modulated by the receiver of a nearby telephone handset. Accordingly, the hearing impaired user would not be able to hear the ambient...

Apple's New iPhones May Miss Out On Higher-...

Due to Apple's complicated way of managing the supply of the components embedded in its flagship devices, the company's upcoming iPhones may miss out on the higher-speed data links that many rival smartphones employ. "One of Apple's suppliers, Qualcomm, sells a modem capable of the 1 gigabit download speeds," reports Bloomberg. "Another supplier, Intel, is working on a modem with the same capability, but it won't be ready for the iPhone's introduction, according to people familiar with Apple's decision." From the report: Apple could in theory just use Qualcomm's chips, but it has an aversion to being dependent on a single supplier, and its relationship with San Diego-based Qualcomm is particularly thorny. Cupertino, California-based Apple is embroiled in a bitter legal fight with the chipmaker, accusing the supplier of maintaining an illegal monopoly, and it's seeking to loosen Qualcomm's grip on the market for high-end smartphone modems. That's why Apple will stick with Qualcomm...

App Store Now Requires Developers To Use Official...

One of the new App Store policy changes made this week is the addition of section 1.1.7, which requires developers to use the official in-app rating UI added in iOS 10.3 and states that they "will disallow custom review prompts" going forward. 9to5Mac reports: When the new App Store rating API was introduced in the iOS 10.3 beta period at the start of the year, adoption was optional but Apple warned that it would eventually become mandatory. It seems that time has come. Here's the relevant addition to the App Store Review guidelines: "Use the provided API to prompt users to review your app; this functionality allows customers to provide an App Store rating and review without the inconvenience of leaving your app, and we will disallow custom review prompts." The language is pretty clear-cut, use the Apple API and stop using custom implementations. The change to the Apple API has some advantages and drawbacks for developers and users.

Tim Cook: Technology should serve humanity, not the...

Technology Review:

Cook says the fact that the press doesn’t always give Apple credit for its AI may be due to the fact that Apple only likes to talk about the features of products it is ready to ship, while many others “sell futures.” Says Cook: “We are not going to go through things we’re going to do in 2019, ’20, ’21. It’s not because we don’t know that. It’s because we don’t want to talk about that.”

While he calls AI “profound” and increasingly capable of doing unbelievable things, on matters that require judgment he’s not comfortable with automating the human entirely out of the equation. “When technological advancement can go up so exponentially I do think there’s a risk of losing sight of the fact that tech should serve humanity, not the other way around.”

I think this is one of the reasons why I like Apple in general and Cook specifically – I wholeheartedly agree with him. Tech for tech’s sake has rarely interested me. But show me tech that makes my...

Pepe Is Banned From the Apple App Store

An anonymous reader shares a report: The rarest pepe is one found on the iOS App Store, and now we know why: Apple has categorized the meme frog as "objectionable content" and has rejected an app called Pepe Scream, Motherboard confirmed. "Your app contains images and references of Pepe the Frog, which are considered objectionable content," an Apple App Review Board employee named Nicole wrote in a rejection notice to Spirit Realm Games, the developer of Pepe Scream. "It would be appropriate to remove the references and revise the images in your app." MrSnrhms, a developer for Spirit Realm Games, gave Motherboard temporary access to the team's iOS developer account, which showed that Apple did indeed reject the app because it contains Pepe, a cartoon frog that has been increasingly associated with the alt-right.

iFixIt offers iMac Intel 21.5” Max RAM Upgrade Kit

Yesterday, the gang at iFixIt (they tear down tech gadgets and look at their innards so you don't have to) disassembled one of the new 21.5-inch iMacs and found (to everyone's surprise) that the memory was upgradeable. It’ the first time Apple has included removable RAM in a 21.5-inch iMac since 2013. 

Now Apple says the iMac isn’t user-upgradable, but with the right tools and parts, you can boost your RAM. And iFixIt is offering those tools and parts. 

Under Apple's configurations, the 3.0GHz 4K tops out at 16GB of RAM. If you want 32GB, you have to buy the more expensive 3.4 GHz version—a $200 minimum increase, plus $600 for 32GB of RAM. 

With iFixit’s iMac Intel 21.5" Max RAM Upgrade Kit, you can quadruple your RAM from 8GB to 32GB for $300. That's just $100 more than what Apple wants to "max out" your RAM at 16 GB on the 3.0 GHz model.

"I went to grad school at Duke, looking for the answer," Cook said. "I tried meditation. I sought guidance and religion. I read great philosophers and authors.

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.

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.

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...

Rumor: ‘iPhone 8’ speeds could lag due to modem...

Apple’s upcoming “iPhone 8” might lag behind the competition in data speed because only one modem manufacturer will have a high-speed product available in time for the phones, claims Bloomberg.

Previously, Apple has previously included two modem manufacturers within the same phone model launch in part to avoid reliance on one manufacturer. 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 (

Apple hires former Stanford Medicine center executive

Apple has hired Dr. Sumbul Desai, the executive director of Stanford Medicine's center for digital health, who led a telemedicine project there and has been overseeing a project to promote health uses for the Apple Watch, reports CNBC.

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.

At Standford, she is responsible for the product strategy, design...

Apple’s newest MacBook, MacBook Pro and iMacs now in...

You can snag Apple’s newest MacBook, MacBook Pro, and iMac iron at almost all of the Apple Store locations within the United States.

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.

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...
