Hands-on with content blocking Safari extensions in...

Call it anti-tracking and privacy software, bandwidth-reduction management, or ad blocking. By whatever name, it’s popular in desktop operating systems like OS X and Windows. A study released midyear found nearly 50 percent of U.S. and 40 percent of routine online newsreading consumers employed blockers. With the release of iOS 9, these kinds of filters can be installed in Mobile Safari.

Content Blocking Safari Extensions, as Apple calls them, are filters created by third-party apps. The apps either include a prefabricated and updated list, or offer options to configure which kinds of content to block, including whitelisting and blacklisting sites.

The 3D printer market set to boom, but don't...

According to Canalys, worldwide 3D printer shipments rose 52% year on year in the first half of 2015. The research group predicts that the worldwide market will reach US$20.2 billion by 2019. Some folks think that Apple should enter this market. Perhaps they're right, but I don't think our favorite tech company will make its own printer. 

“This is a market with enormous growth potential now that the main barriers to up-take are being addressed,” says Canalys Senior Analyst Tim Shepherd. “Advances in technology are yielding faster print times and enabling objects to be printed in greater combinations of materials, colors and finishes. Crucially, prices are also falling, making the technology an increasingly feasible option for a broad variety of enterprise and consumer uses, restricted only by computer aided design competencies and printer availability – both of which are set to improve significantly."

The BBC iPlayer app, which provides streaming and downloadable access to BBC television shows in the UK, has joined Hulu and Pocket in supporting the new Picture in Picture feature in iOS 9.

As with other apps, press the home button once while playing a show and the video window becomes a small floating window that you can resize and reposition while using other iPad apps. The functionality is available on the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 2 and 3.

iPlayer is a free download from iTunes.

How to use iOS 9 content blockers to remove web...

One of the most frequent irritations you may encounter, even on sites you otherwise explicitly want to have ads load, because you want every penny of their ad revenue to accrue due to you viewing, are dismissible or timer-driven popover boxes. These boxes can work poorly in iOS or even prevent you unintentionally from viewing the page. Some require tapping a difficult target X in a corner; missing launches an ad. Others appear for a period of time. Content Blocking Safari Extensions can help.

This popover at the Washington Post encourages you to subscribe, but if you don’t plan to, you may just want it to go away.

Apple's 16GB IPhone 6S Is a Serious Strategic... writes: Matthew Yglesias writes at Vox that Apple's recent announcement of an entry level iPhone 6S is a serious strategic mistake because it contains just 16GB of storage — an amount that was arguably too low even a couple of years back. According to Yglesias, the user experience of an under-equipped iPhone can be quite bad, and the iPhone 6S comes with features — like the ability to shoot ultra-HD video — that are going to fill up a 16GB phone in the blink of an eye. "It's not too hard to figure out what Apple is up to here," writes Yglesias. "Leaving the entry-level unit at 16GB of storage rather than 32GB drives higher profit margins in two ways. One, it reduces the cost of manufacturing the $649 phone, which increases profit margins on sales of the lowest-end model. Second, and arguably more important, it pushes a lot of people who might be happy with a 32GB phone to shell out $749 for the 64GB model."

But this raises the question of what purpose is...

Tim Cook appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday to show off the new iPhone 6s in Rose Gold, and ended up also showing a more approachable side of Apple, one that was not too big nor too cool to be in on the jokes.

“I have to admit I feel a little naked,” Cook said after being asked whether he was comfortable talking in front of an audience without a presentation remote.

Facebook's Button Pushing: What's Not to...

CEO Mark Zuckerberg has revealed that Facebook may integrate an alternative to its ubiquitous Like button. Facebook users have asked for a Dislike button for years, and the company now is preparing to launch a test of something designed to respond to that user demand. The idea is not to transform Facebook into a forum where users could in essence vote up or down on particular posts -- that isn't the point. Instead, the idea is to provide a way for users to express emotions other than Like when posts may contain sad or disturbing news.

Gruber responding to a Nilay Patel tweet:

But I see the fact that Daring Fireball’s revenue streams should remain unaffected by Safari content-blocking as affirmation that my choices over the last decade have been correct: that I should put my readers’ interests first, and only publish the sort of ads and sponsorships that I myself would want to be served, even if that means leaving (significant) amounts of money on the table along the way.

Apple reportedly buys Mapsense, a data analytics...

Re/code reports that Apple has bought Mapsense, a data analytics and visualization company, for US$25-$30 million. The acquisition was mostly likely for acquiring technology, services and perhaps talent for improving the Maps app for Mac OS X and iOS.

Mapsense's platform and developer tools are designed to help organizations "quickly ingest and analyze billions of rows of location data to make more intelligent, locally targeted business decisions across the organization." Users can embed Mapsense to launch real-time reporting and analytics. The platform provides tools to create original data-driven map visualizations.

Mapsense users can take advantage of dynamic vector map tiles to render raw map data, rather than relying on static images. The platform is cloud-based and designed to be highly scalable, with infrastructure capable of streaming billions of rows...

Apple releases 'Move to iOS' app for...

The latest Android operating system, dubbed Marshmallow, seems to borrow a few features from iOS, so Apple is now helping Android users make the big switch.

On Wednesday, shortly after iOS 9’s official release, Apple also released ‘Move to iOS,’ its first ever app for Android users, created with the sole intention to make them leave. Available now for free in the Google Play app store, Move to iOS securely transfers data stored on Android devices — contacts, calendars, bookmarks, email accounts, messages, photos—to an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

Getting started with "Hey Siri" in iOS 9

One of iOS 9’s capstone features is an update to an old friend: Siri. Our built-in personal assistant just got smarter, thanks to its proactive intelligence that promises to anticipate our needs a bit better. Another new-ish thing Siri can do? Launch at the sound of your voice, instead of waiting for you to hold down on the Home button. Apple calls this feature “Hey Siri” (since you have to say the phrase “Hey Siri” to activate it) and you can use it any time your iOS device is connected to a power source.

True, Siri could do this in iOS 8, but the feature is turned off by default in iOS 9 and also offers better voice-recognition technology—meaning, presumably, that Siri won’t start listening if someone else grabs your iPhone and says “Hey Siri.” If you decided to turn this feature on, iOS 9 walks you through a quick setup process to help Siri learn your voice tone a bit better.

Podcast 474: A new iOS update is now available

This week we welcome Brianna Wu, head of development at Giant Spacekat and friend of Macworld, to discuss making games for the Apple TV. Turns out, Apple's restrictions make the most sense if you're developing games Apple's way, but that's obviously not how every game studio works.

We also discuss iOS 9 and our confidence in its stability—as well as our annoyance at those incessant popups urging beta testers to skip right ahead to iOS 9.1. The iPad Pro still has us a bit baffled, so we toss around theories as to what role it will ultimately fill in Apple's lineup and the lives of its eventual users.

Hands-on with iCloud Drive, a brand-new app in iOS 9

If you’re a regular user of iCloud Drive, Apple’s Dropbox-like storage solution for managing file syncing between your Mac and iOS devices, then your life is about to get a teensy bit easier. Apple built a standalone iCloud Drive app and bundled it within iOS 9, placing all of your iCloud Drive files in one easy to access spot. 

But, surprisingly, the iCloud Drive app doesn’t automatically appear—it’s instead tucked away within Settings, and you have to tell your iOS device that you want to see it. Besides that, it’s a pretty straightforward app. Here are some quick tips on getting started.

IoT Can Open Doors to Cybercriminals, FBI Warns

As more companies and consumers use IoT devices to improve efficiency and convenience, their connection to the Internet creates opportunities for cybercriminals, the FBI said in a public service announcement. The "Internet of Things" is a broad term that encompasses myriad devices that connect via cyberspace. Poor security measures, patching challenges, and a lack of security awareness give cybercriminals opportunities.

Lyft partners with Didi Kuaidi to let you hail a car...

Uber’s main rival in China, the ride-hailing app Didi Kuaidi, is making a move in the States by partnering with Lyft, Uber’s sole competitor here. The deal involves money, of course: Didi Kuaidi put $100 million into Lyft earlier this year. But it also means that Lyft’s American users can easily use Didi Kuadi’s services in China, and the same goes for the Chinese app’s customers when they arrive in the U.S.

This is Lyft’s first international play. Until today, the company had focused solely on domestic expansion, which means Uber’s only competition overseas is homegrown services like Didi Kuaidi. You won’t see Lyft branding in China as part of this deal, but the ridesharing app will start letting you hail Didi cars through the Lyft app early next year. Didi offers a range of ride-hailing options: black cars, taxis, ridesharing, bus service, and chauffeurs. In a survey of Chinese users,...

“We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected,” an Apple spokesperson was quoted as saying. “We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly.”

Not the best news you want to hear, but it’s still better than the operating system heading out into the wild – and onto your Apple Watch – without it being fixed.

The new operating system adds a handful of new features, but most importantly gives developers building apps the ability to directly access its sensors and stream data more efficiently between the iPhone and the watch. Other...

iOS 9 on the iPhone 4S: A stay of execution, nothing...

Jolteon is much, much faster than an iPhone 4S.

Andrew Cunningham

The S in iPhone 4S used to stand for "speed," but it's been a couple of years since that was true. iOS 8 wasn't kind to Apple's oldest supported iPhone, which made it even more of a surprise when the company announced in June that the 4S would be hanging around for another year.

That's mostly good news for people still using the four-year-old phone that Apple sold all the way up through late 2014. It doesn't get all of iOS 9's new stuff and it's not nearly as fast as an iPhone 6 or 6S, but competing Android phones from 2011 are all distant memories at this point. This is the longest Apple has ever supported an iPhone, and iOS 9 manages to run about as well as iOS 8 did on the same hardware.

The bad stuff about iOS 8 hangs around, though. Apple...

9 great new features in iOS 9

I have been using iOS 9 for three months now, and there are some seemingly little features that make the entire iOS experience much more pleasurable. Without further ado, here's a list of my nine favorites.

icloud drive app

1) iCloud Drive App

Finally, it feels as if iOS actually has a file system. If you store documents on iCloud, you can now flip a switch to show the iCloud Drive app on your home screen. Just go to Settings > iCloud > iCloud Drive then make sure that the "Show on Home Screen" button is on (green). When you tap on the iCloud Drive app icon, you'll see a set of folders and file icons that will make you feel like you're working on your Mac (see image above).

Hands-on with Maps in iOS 9: Introducing public...

Apple’s native Maps app currently sits in a folder called Junk on the second page of my home screen, where I banished it as soon as it launched close to three years ago. At the time, I lived in San Francisco, but things haven’t changed now that I live in New York, for one huge reason: Maps lacked public transit directions. That’s how I get around the city, and while Maps points you to third-party apps like Embark and Google Maps for subway information, I need an all-in-one solution. Google Maps tells me how to get where I’m going by foot, in a car, or on the train, so it’s my go-to whenever I leave my apartment.

Apple has mitigated a critical iOS vulnerability that allows attackers within Bluetooth range of an iPhone to install malicious apps using the Airdrop filesharing feature.

But he went on to say that the underlying bug still hasn't been fixed.

Assuming they aren't, iOS 9 can be downloaded free via iTunes or as an over-the-air update through the Software Update function in iOS's Settings app. To install it, you'll need to be using (at least) an iPhone 4s, iPad 2, or fifth-generation iPod touch.

watchOS 2 delayed due to unspecified 'bug'

Apple has delayed watchOS 2 — original slated to be released today — due to an unspecified bug. (However, iOS 9 is still due for a roll-out today.).

"We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected," Apple says in a press statement. "We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly."

Kudos to Apple for being wise enough to delay a problematic product. In 2014, the company was widely criticized for iOS 8, which has its share of problems. Shortly after iOS 8 was introduced, Apple rolled out iOS 8.0.1 to fix some glitches. However, it had its own share of problems, forcing Apple to quickly roll out iOS 8.0.2. This lead some folks to wonder if Apple had overextended itself.

watchOS 2 is the first major software update for Apple Watch. Among other things, it gives developers...

Apple had originally planned to release WatchOS 2 today alongside iOS 9, but it has changed its plans. According to a statement given to TechCrunch, the company has "discovered a bug... that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected." Apple hasn't announced a new release date for the operating system—it will be out "shortly," but not today.

WatchOS 2 makes a few additions to the core operating system, but the bigger news is that Apple is opening more hardware access up to third-party developers. They can make apps with more complex animations and access hardware like the Taptic Engine, Digital Crown, and other sensors. These apps will also be able to run without an immediate connection to your phone, something only first-party apps could do before.

iOS 9 on the iPad 2: Not worse than iOS 8, but...

Who knew the iPad 2 would hang around for this long?

Andrew Cunningham

iOS 9 on the iPad 2 is so different from iOS 9 on the iPad Air 2 that they might as well be two different versions of the operating system. That's not really intended as a criticism—the iPad Air 2 is also somewhere around eight or nine times faster than the iPad 2, depending on the benchmark—just a statement of fact.

We're not just talking about the multitasking features, either. The iPad 2 has been missing out on features one by one for years, mostly because of hardware limitations. No Siri-compatible microphone setup means no Siri, or any Siri-powered features. No Bluetooth 4.0 means no AirDrop and no Handoff. An aging Apple A5 means no translucency effects (odd, since other A5 devices, including the largely identical iPad Mini, do support this feature) and none of iOS 9's context-driven Intelligence stuff. No burst photos, no HDR, no panorama, no...

With Apple's biggest foray into TV gaming a bit over a month away, the company still seems to be coming to terms with what kind of control options it will allow Apple TV games to support. TouchArcade reports on a new clause in Apple TV's tvOS programming guide, which states that "your game must support the Apple TV remote. Your game may not require the use of a controller." That's apparently a change from last week, when the guidelines said that developers could "require an extended game controller" if they wanted, according to...

AT&T eases constrictions, now allows for 22GB...

It looks like AT&T will allow unlimited data plan customers more leeway before beginning to throttle their data.

Users with legacy unlimited data plans can use up to 22GB of data per month without getting throttled. After that, users will see slower speeds in congested areas, with the degree of throttling depending on the amount of congestion. Users will also get a warning when they’ve exceeded 16.5GB, which is 75 percent of 22GB.

This represents a significant chance in AT&T’s policies, which began throttling unlimited data users at 5GB in a congested area. In an even older policy, AT&T throttled users at just 3GB for 3G/4G HSPA...

Apple delays watchOS 2 launch due to bug

Apple will not be releasing watchOS 2, its next-generation Apple Watch software, today as planned.

“We have discovered a bug in development of watchOS 2 that is taking a bit longer to fix than we expected,” the company said in a statement to the press. “We will not release watchOS 2 today but will shortly.”

Apple didn’t specify what the problem was, exactly, and didn’t give any further detail on when Apple Watch owners can expect to upgrade.

Todoist gives its task-managing Mac app a refresh

One of Macworld’s favorite to-do list apps, Todoist, is visually refreshing its Mac and web apps and adding some new features that were previously mobile-only.

The most obvious change is a new logo, which spans Todoist’s 16 platforms and looks remarkably different from the “TD” logo of old. The Mac and web apps are also getting a brighter Material Design-inspired makeover with new fonts, 10 new color themes, and new icons.


Todoist added themes for its Mac and web apps.

It's alive! iOS 9 is available... but not...

The moment we heard that iOS 9 was available -- via Twitter, of course -- we published this post that's full of hints on how to make your transition from iOS 8 to iOS 9 as painless as possible. Note that some users -- me included -- are getting a "Software Update Failed" message when attempting to load the update. Be patient, the message is probably due to the entire world trying to download iOS 9 at once. 

Make sure your device can run iOS 9

If your device can run iOS 8, it will be able to run iOS 9. But you may want to consider not updating your favorite iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. 

Some beta testers have reported that older iPhones and iPads like the iPhone 4s, iPad 2, iPad 3 and original iPad mini run slower with iOS 9. If slightly impaired performance is less important than new features, then updating to iOS 9 is probably a good idea.

Delete lesser-used or outdated apps

As part of the update, all of your...

Bug In iOS, OS X Allows AirDrop To Write Files...

Trailrunner7 writes: There is a major vulnerability in a library in iOS and OS X that allows an attacker to overwrite arbitrary files on a target device and, when used in conjunction with other techniques, install a signed app that the device will trust without prompting the user with a warning dialog. Mark Dowd, the security researcher who discovered it, said he's been able to exploit the flaw over AirDrop, the feature in OS X and iOS that enables users to send files directly to other devices. If a user has AirDrop set to allow connections from anyone—not just her contacts—an attacker could exploit the vulnerability on a default locked iOS device. In fact, an attacker can exploit the vulnerability even if the victim doesn't agree to accept the file sent over AirDrop.

Apple's 20MW solar power station in Sichuan Province, western China, will begin operations at full capacity "soon," according to, a global investmentnewswire, quoting info from the plant's builder, Zhonghuan Semiconductor. It's Apple's first solar power project in China.

The power station connected two megawatts (MW) of its capacity to the national grid in March and the remaining 18MW will also be connected to the grid soon, Zhonghuan Semiconductor said in a filing to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange. Apple will build photovoltaic stations in China through a joint venture with Sichuan Shengtian New Energy Development Co Ltd, according to an April press release of Shentian’s major shareholder, Zhonghuan Semiconductor.

iOS 9, thoroughly reviewed

Andrew Cunningham

iOS 8 wasn't the smoothest operating system rollout in Apple's history.

It's true, any other ecosystem would kill for Apple's OS adoption figures—as of this writing, 87 percent of the userbase is running some version of iOS 8. But it had a slower start than past versions of iOS, it required a ton of free space to install, and it had a few unfortunate bugs early in its life cycle that gave it a bad reputation. Like iOS 7 this was a big release, and with any big change comes the potential for big bugs.

Viewed from that lens, iOS 9 feels...

Teraglove helps you clean up your act (or at least...

moshi's US$19.95 teraglove is a handy (pun intended) product for cleaning the screens of your OS X and iOS devices. Plus, it's environmentally friendly.

The teraglove is made with moshi's own blend of Terahedron and is used to remove dust, dirt, stain and smears from any display or touch screen. With its "default configuration" (yep, that's how moshi describes it), you use it to remove smears. The default configuration is when the grey side is exposed.

You can turn the teraglove inside out to reveal a black suede-like inner layer meant for wiping away dust particles and water left on the screen. It has an eco-friendly design; moshi says that no chemicals or chemical treatments are used in the cleaning solution or cloth. And you can toss the teraglove in with your wash to clean and use it again.

Conveniently, it comes with a small...

Apple Search may arrive someday, but not soon

In May, Apple confirmed the existence of its Applebot web crawler (which isn't to be confused with either Ultron or Spider-man). So is Apple planning to take on Google somewhere down the road with "Apple Search"? Perhaps.

A Web crawler is an Internet bot that browses the Web in a methodical, automated manner, typically for the purpose of Web indexing. Apple says that Applebot is used by Siri, its voice activated digital assistant, Spotligh suggestions, and its Safari search engine.

However, Mark Hibben — independent iOS developer who blogs about technology trends and companies (the focus of his investments) said in a Seeking Alpha op-ed that Apple may gradually develop a search capability to rival Google.

Here's Hibben's reasoning: "This is not about kicking Google to the curb this year, or even the next. This would be a long-term strategic move by Apple that might take something like five years to pay off....

Hands-on with the new, proactive Spotlight in iOS 9

Spotlight in iOS has never gotten a lot of respect, even as it’s become more powerful. Hidden as a swipe-right option from the home screen before iOS 7: The Flattening, it’s only starting with iOS 8 that it went beyond a rough way to find stuff within a set of Apple’s apps to become a more robust combination of deeper searching and suggestions of what you might want.

iOS 9 takes it a step further, integrating suggestions from Siri and opening up to third-party developers including their results. It makes for a much richer experience, and more is to come as apps are updated.

Proactive search and app search

iOS 8 brought in information from the rest of the world: Wikipedia results, information from current news, places and movie showtimes near you, appropriate matches from things Apple can sell and give you (apps, books, music, movies, and the like), and websites that might match your search.

Apple also mentioned that games that worked only with third-party controllers were okay, meaning the games wouldn’t necessarily have to be compatible with the company’s bundled Siri Remote. Now, however, Apple says that games can not require the use of third-party...
