How to access/write-to NTFS drives on Mac natively...

Have you come across an NTFS formatted drive you’re having trouble using on your Mac? It’s not just an issue for those switching from Windows machines to Mac, but also for Bootcamp users and others who want to connect the odd drive from their Windows-using friends or colleagues.

If you want to write to/edit an NTFS formatted drive on macOS, a format commonly used for drives that interface with Windows computers, there’s a couple ways of doing it. You’ll be able to read what’s on the drive, but to have full compatibility to access and edit what’s on it requires a workaround. If you want to write to an NTFS drive natively like any other drive on your Mac, there is fortunately a way to easily add that functionality using Paragon NTFS for Mac.

Here’s how it works:

I’ve spent a considerable amount of time with both the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, and the 13-inch MacBook Pro that features standard function keys. The machines share some noteworthy differences, but there are numerous similarities as well.

One unfortunate similarity is the fact that the three-finger drag trackpad gesture doesn’t work like it should. In other words, if you’re having a problem with the three-finger drag gesture on your shiny new MacBook Pro, it’s not just you. more…

New York's District Attorney: Roll Back Apple...

An anonymous reader quotes Mashable:
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said Thursday that he wants Apple's encryption to go back to how it was in early 2014. Back then, police could basically extract any information they wanted after getting a warrant. "Doing nothing about this problem will perpetuate an untenable arms race between private industry and law enforcement," Vance said on Thursday. "Federal legislation is our only chance to lay these arms aside."

Vance said he's got 423 "lawfully-seized Apple devices" that his employees can't do anything with. Forty-two of those devices "pertain to homicide or attempted murder cases" according to the district attorney's office, and a similar number "relate to sex crimes." The argument, of course, is that the district attorney's office would have an easier time solving crimes if they had access to these phones... Apple believes being forced to hack into phones at the government's will is an unreasonable burden.

The Next iPhone Will Feature An OLED Display, Says...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bloomberg: Apple Inc. has big plans to outfit its next iPhone with vibrant, energy-sipping organic LED displays, seeking to entice consumers with new technology that's already been embraced by other high-end smartphone makers. The trouble is that the four main suppliers for such components won't have enough production capacity to make screens for all new iPhones next year, with constraints continuing into 2018, people familiar with the matter said, presenting a potential challenge for the Cupertino, California-based company. OLED screens are more difficult to produce, putting Apple at the mercy of suppliers that are still working to manufacture the displays in mass quantities, the people said. The four largest producers are Samsung Display Co., LG Display Co., Sharp Corp., and Japan Display Inc. While Samsung is on track to be the sole supplier for the new displays next year, the South Korean company may not be able to make enough due to low...

Juniper: smart glasses shipments to reach 10 million...

Apple is considering expanding into digital/smart glasses, “a risky but potentially lucrative area of wearable computing,” according to Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter.” And Juniper Research (www.junipersearch.com) probably thinks Apple should look into “iGlasses” instead. New findings from the hi-tech research group that global smart glasses’ shipments will reach 10 million per annum by 2018, compared to an estimated 87,000 in 2014.

Juniper Research notes that as the retail price for smart glasses decline towards the end of the forecast period, the adoption level amongst consumers will significantly increase.The research group argues that in order for wearable devices such as smart glasses to achieve critical mass, they need to be much more than complementary...

Wireless power for mobile devices to be worth $5...

The ease and convenience of transmitting power via plug-free and, in many cases, contactless charging is fueling the adoption of wireless power for a wide range of devices and machinery -- from military and medical devices to electric vehicles to unmanned aircraft. So, hopefully, we’ll see an iPhone with wireless charging in 2017.

Wireless charging has been around for a few years, and manufacturers such as Samsung have been quick to incorporate this technology into their phones. While only the Apple Watch uses it so far, previous reports indicate that Apple has been acquiring engineers from wireless charging companies and cite 2017 as the year we will see this technology.

Based on 1,500 interviews with IT and LOB decision makers in 10 vertical sectors across the U.K., France, Germany, and Sweden, IDC's Tablet in Enterprise 2.0 — The Large Opportunity study reveals that tablets are part and parcel of the mobility strategy of 60% of companies, with over two-thirds evaluating or planning to purchase slate or detachable devices in the short term, contributing to a significant increase in tablet penetration over the next three years.

The study confirms that tablet adoption continues to expand in terms of users and new usage scenarios. From highly mobile employees using detachable devices to...

Last month, Apple unveiled new MacBook Pros, featuring an OLED Touch Bar, Touch ID, and all-new form factor that shaves off roughly 3mm in thickness. There are three base versions of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Intel Core i5 processors and 8GB of memory (upgradable to 16GB RAM and dual-core Intel Core i7 processors) for $1,499, $1,799 and $1,999. The base model 15-inch MacBook Pro comes with Core i7 processors and 16GB of memory for $2,399 and $2,799. Of course, adapters and AppleCare support are sold separately. The new laptops are great for Apple users -- but what about Windows users? Is there a Windows laptop that matches the new MacBook Pro in terms of build quality, reliability, and performance?

Apple has rolled out a new commercial for the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar called Bulbs. The 1 minute, 37 second spot features flashes of some big (and small) inventions using exploding lightbulbs as a metaphor.

A new exploit requiring precise timing in conjunction with physical access to a device that has Siri enabled on the lock screen has surfaced, giving attackers the ability to view contact information, including photos, and message logs.

Of course, continuing to support AppleScript and Automator is a lot different than adding new features. As 9to5Mac notes, the automation solutions may be in “maintenance mode,” where the products continue to be supported but don’t have a new features roadmap for future macOS versions.

Apple's Chip Choices May Leave Some iPhone...

Not all iPhone 7s are created equal, it turns out. The latest flagship smartphones from Apple that run on Verizon's network are technically capable of downloading data faster than those from AT&T. Yet in testing, the two phones perform about the same, according to researchers at Twin Prime Inc. and Cellular Insights. From a Bloomberg report: Neither firm is clear on the reason, but Twin Prime says it may be because Apple isn't using all the potential of a crucial component in the Verizon version. "The data indicates that the iPhone 7 is not taking advantage of all of Verizon's network capabilities," said Gabriel Tavridis, head of product at Twin Prime. "I doubt that Apple is throttling each bit on the Verizon iPhone, but it could have chosen to not enable certain features of the network chip." "Every iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus meets or exceeds all of Apple's wireless performance standards, quality metrics, and reliability testing," Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller said. "In all...

Automation technologies will continue to be...

Fans of macOS automation features like Automator and AppleScript feared the worst this week as it transpired that head of the automation technologies division, Sal Soghoian, had left the company and the whole unit inside Apple had been closed down. This fuelled speculation that Apple was abandoning a core power feature of the pro Mac user’s wheelhouse.

A 9to5Mac reader (who asked to remain anonymous) emailed Apple software exec Craig Federighi about the future of automation on the Mac. Federighi responded with a definitive reply that Apple “has every intent” to continue supporting automation on macOS.  See the full email after the jump …

Wei Gu, a long-time China reporter most recently with the Wall Street Journal, has joined Apple to take up a PR Director role based out of its office in Shanghai, China, according to TechCrunch.

She has more than 18 years of media experience in both print and broadcast. That includes more than a decade as a columnist at Reuters in New York and Hong Kong, and close to four years at the Journal, where Gu wrote about business and markets as its Hong Kong-based China Wealth and Luxury editor. Beijing-based Carolyn Wu leads Apple’s media relations in China.

Maybe it’s time for Apple to bring back the Mac...

After returning to Apple in 1997, Steve Jobs attempted to re-negotiate the clone manufacturers' license agreements. When the clone makers refused, Jobs refused to license later versions of the Apple hardware and operating systems to the clone vendors, effectively ending the clone program. Perhaps it’s time to bring it back.

Why? Read Chance Miller’s excellent editorial at 9to5Mac. As he mentions, with the Mac Pro and Mac mini both lagging significantly behind in terms of upgrades, lots of us are really starting to question Apple’s commitment to the Mac desktop market. And there was no mention of those two desktops or iMacs at last month’s Mac-focused “hello, again” event, which makes...

iFixIt tears down the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch...

The gang at iFixIt, which tears apart devices to examine their innards, has torn down the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (look for my review soon). Teardown highlight include:

  • Just like its little brother, the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Tool Barfeatures a plugged-up connector to nowhere. Based on a previous teardown, iFixIt speculates that Apple included an access port for the integrated SSD. Not a bad idea when it's impossible to physically salvage your data out of a damaged machine.
  • Compared to the merely supersized trackpad in the 13-inch MBP, the 15-inch trackpad is a figurative Big Gulp. Apple threw in an extra Broadcom touch controller IC to handle all of that extra touchable glass.
  • Just like its smaller brothers, most of the 15-inch MBP's speaker grille holes are cosmetic and don't go all the way through. 
  • Just like its smaller Touch Bar-wielding...

You're sitting in the center seat in economy class with the people on both sides of you snoring away. It seems like the perfect time to just drift away with your favorite movie, but you don't want to hold your iPhone for 2 hours. So you reach into your wallet and pull out a tripod. No, you're not a magician; you're just a lucky person who took advantage of this Apple World Today Deal and pre-ordered the Pocket Tripod for $19.99. 

Pocket Tripod has had several successful runs through Kickstarter, and now the company is taking pre-orders for the next production run. The Pocket Tripod has about the same dimensions as a business card -- 3 x 2 x 0.01 inches -- but is made of durable high-impact plastic to fold into an adjustable stand.

One interesting find, also present in the smaller version, is a ‘connector to nowhere’: a port on the logic board that isn’t connected to anything. Comments on the previous teardown speculate that this might...

Apple has launched a program to repair iPhone 6 Plus devices exhibiting t display flickering or Multi-Touch issues after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device.

If your iPhone 6 Plus is exhibiting the symptoms noted above, is in working order, and the screen is not cracked or broken, Apple will repair your device for a service price of $149. Apple will contact customers who may have paid for a service repair related to this issue either through Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider to arrange reimbursement. 

If you’ve not been contacted but paid for a repair that you believe was related to this issue, contact Apple. The reimbursement amount will equal the difference between the price you paid for the original service to your iPhone 6 Plus and the $149 service price.

Apple is offering to repair at a reduced price iPhone 6 Plus smartphones with display flickering or multitouch issues.

The problem, described in August as “touch disease” by repair guide website iFixit, is characterized by a gray, flickering bar at the top of the display and an unresponsive touchscreen. The issue affects both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, according to iFixit.

Apple appears to consider it a problem with the way users handled the phone rather than a defect. It said Thursday that the company has determined that the smartphones may exhibit display flickering or Multi-Touch issues “after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device.”

iPhones secretly storing call data in iCloud, allows...

This definitely qualifies as a mess between privacy, security and law enforcement.

While Apple emerged as a guardian of privacy earlier this year, fighting the FBI’s demands to help crack San Bernadino shooter Syed Farouk’s iPhone, implementing improved encryption for all its handsets and refusing to undermine that encryption, it appears that private data is being sent to the iCloud without user consent.

Russian digital forensics firm Elcomsoft has found that Apple’s mobile devices automatically send a user’s call history to the company’s servers if iCloud is enabled — but the data gets uploaded in many instances without user choice or notification.

“You only need to have iCloud itself enabled” for the data to be sent, said Vladimir Katalov,...

This is kind of strange.

Since the days of OS X El Capitan, Apple has activated a protection feature called System Integrity Protection, which is designed to keep your Mac safe from malware by restricting the permissions of the root user account and preventing unauthorized access to protected files and folders.

The program runs behind the scenes and is generally enabled by default in Mac running OS X El Capitan. Developer Jonathan Wight noticed that the System Integrity Protection feature has been disabled on newer Macs, prompting developer Steven Troughton-Smith to do an informal Twitter survey asking users about the status of their new machines.

As of now, the System Integrity Protection feature has been found to have been disabled out...

GoPro's ambitious plans to be a player in the fledgling drone market crashed last week when it had to announce a product recall due to Karma UAV units falling from the sky. The company needed to resolve a performance issue related to loss of power during operation, it said. It indicated it would resume shipment of Karma at some point, but didn't suggest when. The Karma recall likely will have a significant impact on GoPro's stock price and revenue, said Michael Blades, a senior industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

Wacom announces Cintiq Pro line of pen displays

Wacom has announced the Wacom Cintiq Pro line of creative pen displays, the Cintiq Pro 13 and Cintiq Pro 16. The line “wraps the most natural and precise pen performance to date into a sleek, thin and portable form factor to help designers, illustrators, photographers or anyone with a passion for art to unlock their creativity,” says Masahiko Yamada, president and CEO of Wacom. 

Paramount to the Cintiq Pro experience is the new Pro Pen 2, which purportedly delivers four times greater accuracy and pressure sensitivity than the previous Pro Pen. The improved Pro Pen 2 creates an intuitive, free-flowing experience with virtually lag-free tracking on a glass surface that produces just the right amount of friction and is coated to reduce reflection, according to...

Comment: Given the ultra-low repairability of the...

I don’t generally bother with AppleCare. My usual view is that, like any other extended warranty, it offers poor value for money. You’re paying a lot of money upfront for coverage you’ll likely never need.

Most Mac faults are going to make themselves known well inside the first year of standard Apple warranty coverage. The likelihood of a major fault occurring in the interval between the standard warranty expiring and AppleCare doing the same is very low. (There’s an additional factor at play in the EU, which I’ll get to later as it won’t be relevant to U.S. readers.)

But I am opting for it this time. Because the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is not only non-upgradable, but also pretty much non-repairable …

iGlass is THE case to show off the beauty of the jet...

Last week Apple World Today covered the announcement of a newiPhone 7 Plus case called iGlass made by SwitchEasy. It’s unique in that, like the iPhone itself, it’s all glass and aluminum.

I had the opportunity to test one of the cases this week. The case is two parts--  an aluminum frame and a tempered glass back. The glass is only 0.8mm thick, and the transparency is 90% with a hardness of 7H. This should prevent scratching under most circumstances. The clarity of the back clearly shows not only the Apple logo,  but you can even still see the small writing at the bottom of the iPhone’s back.

There is only a 0.1mm gap between the glass and the back of the iPhone, but the glass never touches the iPhone. Only 13% of the iPhone is touched by the case. To keep dust from getting under the case at the camera cutout there is a small rubber gasket that is lightly glued to stick to the...
