Apple Watch Series 3 now tracks skiing, snowboarding...

Skiers and snowboarders can now use Apple Watch Series 3 to track their activities via new updates to apps available in the App Store. Watch users can now record runs, see vertical descent and other stats, and contribute active calorie measurements directly to the Apple Watch Activity app.

The updated Slopes app tracks speed, vertical, distance, lift vs. trail time and more with a completely redesigned interface.

Developers are taking advantage of the built-in GPS and altimeter in Apple Watch Series 3 as well as custom workout APIs released in watchOS 4.2 to enable tracking of specialized metrics. App updates for snoww, Slopes, Squaw Alpine, Snocru and Ski Tracks now track new metrics on the slopes including: total vertical descent and horizontal distance; number of runs; average and maximum speeds; total time spent; and calories burned.

Apps can auto pause and resume and users will get credit towards their Activity rings; workout information will also...

Apple patent involves Mac laptops with easily...

So far Apple has made it more and more difficult to upgrade its various devices. However, a newly granted patent (number 9,904,333) involves Macs — especially Mac laptops — with easily replaced solid state drives (SSDs).

The patent, dubbed “SSD related features of a portable computer,” involves a removable assembly for quickly inserting and removing a mass storage device from a compartment situated on the case of a portable computing device. The removable assembly is made of a mass storage device, a bracket which serves as a carrier for the mass storage device, and a metal plate. 

In some embodiments, the mass storage device is a solid state drive (SSD) card. The bracket is a single-piece plastic structure that is deflected for snap insertion into the compartment and snap removal from the compartment. The metal plate conducts heat from the solid state drive (SSD) card to prevent the SSD from overheating.

In the patent filing, Apple notes manufacturers have...

TotalMount Pro makes it easy to attach an Apple TV...

I really like my Apple TV 4K and use it daily. However, when it was sitting on my TV stand, my two-year granddaughter thought it was a toy. Not good. Enter the $29.95 TotalMount Pro, which attaches the Apple set-top box to the back of your television.

It’s also handy for wall-mounted TV owners who have struggled with tunneling an HDMI cable from a television through a wall to an Apple TV.  Running an HDMI cable through a wall is too destructive and time-consuming. TotalMount Pro makes Apple TV installation simple by attaching the Apple TV to the back of the television. 

This installation method positions the Apple set-top box for easy access to the HDMI port on the back of the television. (A power cord is still necessary, but most wall-mounted televisions have a power outlet behind the television.)

The Apple TV includes a rechargeable...

How to reset your HomePod

If your HomePod isn’t responding, you should unplug it from its power source, then plug it in again. If that doesn’t work — and ONLY if that doesn’t work — should you reset it to its factory settings. 

However, if you must do this, you can use the Home app to reset the HomePod to its factory settings by following these steps:

  • On your iOS device, open the Home app. Make sure that your iOS device is signed in with the Apple ID that you used to set up your HomePod.
  • In the Home or Rooms tab, press and hold HomePod, then tap Details.
  • Scroll to the bottom and tap Remove Accessory.

If you can’t remove the HomePod from the Home app, you can press the top of HomePod to reset it to its factory settings. Here’s how:

  • Unplug HomePod, then plug it back in.
  • Press and hold the top of HomePod. Make sure that you keep your finger on the top of HomePod the entire time. If you lift your finger, you'll need to start over.

Barclays cites longer wait times for iPhone battery...

If you’re looking to snag a battery for an older iPhone with a degraded battery, you may face a longer time than ever per new data shared by Barclays.

Average wait times for a new battery have jumped up to 2.7 to 4.5 weeks based on a series of Apple Store checks conducted by Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz. This figure is up from around 2.3 to 4.5 weeks earlier in the year.

When a replacement battery repair, stores typically have to order the part through Apple, which makes the processor more complicated than scheduling a Genius Bar appointment. Wait times for the replacement batteries can vary based on location and device model. Batteries for devices like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are harder to come by than batteries for the iPhone 7, and for some devices, like the iPhone 6 Plus, battery wait times have ranged into months.

As of January, Apple stated that batteries for the iPhone 6 Plus, which is no longer being sold, are in short enough supply as to...

Wireless carrier T-Mobile has released additional details regarding its 5G network plans for 2018 and 2019, citing that 5G connectivity will be available in 30 US cities, with availability starting next year.

Alongside news from AT&T and Sprint today on 5G plans and progress, T-Mobile shared its own details on the topic in a press release. Notably, Dallas will be the one city receiving 5G service soon from all of these carriers (Verizon hasn’t announced launch cities for now).

T-Mobile also stated that customers in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Las Vegas will be the first to have access to it with compatible smartphones next year.

T-Mobile also criticized the mobile hotspot pucks offered by some of its competitors, offering the following:

“Dumb and Dumber are in a meaningless race to be first. Their so-called 5G isn’t mobile, and it’s not even on a smartphone. It’s a puck?! You gotta be pucking kidding me!” said John Legere, president and CEO...

New Apple Patent Imagines an OLED Screen As a...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: The United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted Apple a patent titled "dual display equipment with enhanced visibility and suppressed reflections." The documentation for what is patent number 9,904,502 outlines a device that would use a second display as a dynamic keyboard. Two implementations of this design are described in the patent application, according to Patently Apple. The first utilizes a permanent hinge, while the second allows the screen to be removed and used separately, along the lines of Microsoft's Surface Pro range and other two-in-one computers. The patent documentation makes it clear that the implementation is not intended as an accessory that would allow two iPads to be paired together, with one serving as the keyboard. Additionally, illustrations associated with the application explicitly state that one screen is an OLED display, while the other is an LCD. A double-display set-up could provide easy...

With the service, called AC Wellness, Apple is moving in the same direction as a new joint project of Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, and J.P.

These moves are an indictment of the state of the U.S. healthcare system — the tech companies are saying, “We can do it better and cheaper” — but the question is if the lessons they learn can be applied more broadly.

Wait time for replacement iPhone batteries increases

In a note to clients — as noted by 9to5Mac — Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz says the current wait times for iPhone battery availability have gone up to 3-4.5 weeks after a series of calls to Apple Stores. The longest wait of any Apple Store was found to be 9-10 weeks.

A few weeks ago the average wait time was pegged at 2-4.5 weeks, with a forecast for steady improvements. While the research group was surprised by the increased wait times, Barclays says that, overall, the customer response to the replacement program is on track with its previous estimates. In January, Moskowitz forecasted that about 50 million iPhone users would take advantage of the program out of a total 500 million eligible devices.

In December 2017 Apple published an apology letter to customers in regards to “...

An important lesson I’ve learned as CEO of Marketcircle is that as a business, it’s critical to evolve or you get left behind. In order for us to stay competitive in our market, to continue innovating, and to provide you with excellent products and services, we have to focus on Cloud. With 87% of our revenue coming from Cloud, it doesn’t make sense to continue working on a platform that splits our resources and is decreasing in demand. If we continue to support both platforms, both will suffer.

One day we may buy AppleCare for our bodies, not...

Apple’s next big thing might not be something you can wear, drive, or even touch. It might be your body itself.

According to a report by CNBC, Apple will be launching a group of health clinics in Santa Clara County called AC Wellness. The initiative will initially be limited to employees and their families when it launches this spring.

Why this matters: Apple has becoming intimately familiar with health care ever since the launch of the Health app on iOS and the Apple Watch, so it’s not at all surprising that it’s entering the field. The question is whether Apple can disrupt health care. Apple isn’t just the most valuable company in the world, it’s also one of the most trusted. While the new clinics will likely be limited to an employee benefit for the foreseeable future, it’s not hard to imagine a world where we’re buying health care...

IDC: iPhone returns to growth in 2017

Coming off of the first year-over-year decline in iPhone shipments in 2016, Apple returned to growth in 2017 albeit only 0.2%, according to IDC. The tech giant shipped 215.8 million iPhones in 2017 with 64% of those coming from “plus-size” smartphones such as the iPhone X. 

IDC says the shift to bigger, more expensive devices has allowed Apple to continue to grow its average sales prices (ASPs) while facing the challenges of growing its shipment volumes. The research group expects iPhone shipments to grow 3.7% to 223.8 million units in 2018 and reaching 242.4 million in 2022. Overall iPhone volumes are expected to grow at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.4%. 

“Apple will continue to experience challenges breaking into some of the remaining high-growth developing markets, but there is no question they are far from being pushed out of the premium market segment,” writes IDC.”Apple continues to build out...

A newly-published Apple patent application hints at the possibility of a charging case for the Apple Watch that could also hold spare bands -- and even charge those bands, if they're enhanced with special features.

Apple is launching medical clinics to deliver the ‘...

Christina Farr, CNBC:

Apple is launching a group of health clinics called AC Wellness for its own employees and their families this spring, according to several sources familiar with the company’s plans.

The company quietly published a website,, with more details about its initiative and a careers page listing jobs including primary care doctor, exercise coach, and care navigator, as well as a phlebotomist to administer lab tests on-site.


Sources said that it started notifying third-party vendors about the shift to its own network of health clinics this week.


Sources said the company will leverage its medical clinics as a way to test out its growing range of health services and products, which it is starting to roll out to consumers at large.

Will Apple roll out health clinics to serve consumers, rather than just employees? Not clear, but certainly seems a possibility.

Apple will allow repair service for ‘vintage’ iMacs...

Apple has “internally” announced that it’s launching a pilot program that will permit its retail stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers to continue offering repair service for 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac models released in mid-2011, despite the fact they will be classified as vintage in March, reports MacRumors.

The pilot program will be available in the U.S. for a limited time: March 1 to Aug. 31, 2018, subject to parts availability from Apple, according to the company's internal memo obtained by MacRumors. After the pilot ends, repairs will only be available in California and Turkey, as required by law.

Enlarge (credit: Fitbit)

Those previously on the fence about getting a Fitbit Ionic smartwatch now have a new model to consider.

Fitbit revealed its device collaboration with Adidas today—the Ionic Adidas Edition is a spiced-up Ionic smartwatch featuring an Adidas-made watch face, special wristbands, and the Adidas Train app for runners. Similar to the Apple Watch Nike+ edition, this version of Fitbit's smartwatch combines all of the features of the original Ionic with exclusive perks developed in collaboration with Adidas that users can't get on any other Ionic model.

The Adidas Edition's case is identical to that of a regular Ionic, but the...

Apple plans giant high-end iPhone, lower-priced model

Mark Gurman and Debby Wu, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. is preparing to release a trio of new smartphones later this year: the largest iPhone ever, an upgraded handset the same size as the current iPhone X and a less expensive model with some of the flagship phone’s key features.


With a screen close to 6.5 inches, Apple’s big new handset will be one of the largest mainstream smartphones on the market. While the body of the phone will be about the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus, the screen will be about an inch larger thanks to the edge-to-edge design used in the iPhone X. (Apple is unlikely to refer to the phone as a phablet, a term popularized by Samsung.)

I remember agonizing over the huge size of the iPhone 6 Plus, worrying about it fitting in my pockets, being too large for my hands. I switched and have never looked back. I no longer think of the Plus form factor as large. To me, it has become the new normal.

The thought of the same footprint,...

Apple patent involves a wireless charging case for...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,901,147) for a “case for a wearable electronic device.” It’s for a wireless charging case for the Apple Watch.

The case can include first and second housing members foldably coupled together by one or more hinges between an open position and a closed position. A recess formed in one of the housing members is sized and shaped to hold the one or more bands within the case with an attachment mechanism positioned within the cavity. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that smartwatches “can be part of a large ecosystem of interchangeable bands and devices such that a user may have two or more bands the user may want to use with their wearable electronic device.” And Apple would love for you to buy multiple bands for your Apple Watch.

Should such an accessory see the light of day, presumably it would offer an alternative to Apple’s upcoming...

Future Mac laptops could sport dual displays (...

Future Mac laptops could sport dual displays if a new granted Apple patent (number 9,904,502) ever comes to fruition. In one embodiment, such a device would replace the physical keyboard with a second display that could show a virtual keyboard.

The second display could also serve as a giant trackpad or a drawing pad (presumably for use with an Apple Pencil). This screen could also be home to buttons, joysticks, scrolling wheels, touch pads, key pads, keyboards, microphones, speakers, tone generators, vibrators, cameras, sensors, light-emitting diodes and other status indicators, data ports, etc

In another iteration, the hinge that holds the two displays together could be designed with magnets so that the two screens could be separated. This at least raises the possibility of the second screen to be detached and used as an iPad.

Here’s a (somewhat technical) summary of the patent: “Electronic equipment with displays may be provided. A first display may be...

Apple launches AC Wellness subsidiary to deliver...

Apple is launching a group of medical clinics called AC Wellness to deliver the "world's best healthcare experience" to its employees and their families, CNBC reports. The initiative includes two clinics in Santa Clara County, California, so far.

Apple has published a website,, with more details about its initiative and a careers page listing jobs including primary care doctor, exercise coach, and care navigator, as well as a phlebotomist to administer lab tests on-site. The site is described as “an independent medical practice dedicated to delivering compassionate, effective healthcare to the Apple employee population.”

Info on the website also says:

Apple has today been granted a patent for an Apple Watch charging carrying case which works like the AirPods case – providing somewhere to store the Watch when not in use, while simultaneously recharging it. The design is significantly different to that offered with the original $10k+ Apple Watch Edition.

While a charging case for a device typically worn all day might sound less useful than the AirPods case, it makes more sense when you read the details …

The NewerTech HDMI Headless Video Accelerator is a...

Apple hasn’t shown the Mac mini love in a long time, but the tiny computer still has its fans. And those fans may find the $18.75 NewerTech HDMI Headless Video Accelerator useful.

It’s a simple adapter that plugs into the mini’s HDMI display port to make display-free “headless” Mac minis used as storage and media servers think that there’s a display attached. Because of the Mac mini’s compact size, superior storage, performance, and low cost, they’re often used as “headless” networking, storage, production studio media, and home theater servers with no need for a monitor, keyboard or mouse. 

When the Mac mini is used without a monitor, its GPU isn’t used. As a result, the interface lags, resulting in choppy screens and slow video, animation, cursor movements, menu navigation, and typing. Plugging the NewerTech HDMI Headless Video Accelerator into the HDMI port of the Mac mini solves...

How to set a default account in macOS High Sierra’s...

I have five email addresses, four business ones and one personal address. If I don’t set a default account, each time I write a new email it's sent from one of my business addresses. If I want to send the mail from my personal address I have to remember to choose the correct personal account from a drop-down box.

Most of my email correspondence is business related, so I want my Apple World Today email address to be my default email account. Thankfully, that’s easy with macOS High Sierra.

Open Mail, then click Mail on the menu bar, then Preferences, then Accounts. Highlight the account you want to be the default, then under Outgoing Mail Server Select “Use only this server.” 

If you want to use another mail server to send a message, in the New Message compose window, below To, Cc, Subject is the From line where you can select a different server from which to send your mail.

Apple currently facing 60 lawsuits following iPhone...

Some things come back to haunt a company.

The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation has disclosed that it will consider consolidating dozens of iPhone performance-related complaints filed against Apple during a hearing scheduled for Thursday, March 29th, in Atlanta, Georgia.

This is a routine for similar cases filed across multiple states.

Apple currently faces no less than 59 putative class action cases across 16 district courts in the United States following the fallout of the company’s intentionally throttling the speed of certain model iPhones in circumstances where the battery might have undergone chemical aging. The throttling process was introduced as a feature in iOS 10.2.1 and removed in later versions of the operating system. This total includes no less than 30 cases before Judge Edward J. Davila in the Northern District of California, where the lawsuits will likely be centralized given their overlapping claims.

Apple is currently...

Rumor: Apple to release three Face ID-capable iPhone...

Additional rumors have surfaced as to Apple planning to release a trio of iPhone models this fall, all three incorporating Face ID authentication technology.

The report, via Bloomberg, states that Apple is looking at producing 6.5-inch screen, with a body about the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus. An edge-to-edge design in the “D33” model, such as that in the iPhone X, would allow for a large OLED screen without significantly increasing the size of the enclosure.

The largest of the rumored models is said to boast a screen resolution of 1,242 x 2,588, thereby giving it the same pixel density as that of the iPhone X.

The rumored “D32” is said to be “an update to the regular-sized iPhone X,” and a gold color is said to be under development. It has yet to be confirmed whether Apple will bring the gold-colored units to market.

Apple is also expected to introduce its “A12” processor along with iOS 12, thereby keeping in line with its previous processor and...

Apple To Suspend iTunes Store Support For '...

The original Apple TV, first introduced in 2007, will no longer be able to connect to the iTunes Store due to new security changes to be implemented by Apple. The news comes from a support document, which also mentions that PCs running Windows XP or Windows Vista will lose access to the most recent version of iTunes. Ars Technica reports: According to the document, the "obsolete" original Apple TV won't be updated in the future to support access to the iTunes Store. After May 25, users will only be able to access iTunes on second-generation Apple TVs and newer streaming devices. The same security changes affecting the first-gen Apple TV will also affect Windows XP and Vista machines. Users on such devices can still run previous versions of iTunes, so they should still be able to play their music library without problems. However, affected users won't be able to make new iTunes purchases or re-download previous purchases. Only machines running Windows 7 or later after May 25 will...

Adding HomeKit to your house can be expensive, but as the technology progresses, more affordable options have been making their way to market that make HomeKit a viable choice for a broader market.

A couple of weeks ago, Zac reviewed Hong Kong-based VOCOlinc’s HomeKit-enabled LED light strips, noting that the price almost seemed too good to be true for a HomeKit product with no bridge required. Intrigued by the company, I decided to try out their smart power strip with HomeKit support.
