Sylvania’s Smart Multicolor A19 light bulb is...

Good news, everyone! In an effort to shield us from the existential dread that comes from having to turn on the lights in your home with a switch on the wall—like an animal—LEDVANCE has given us a HomeKit and Siri-controlled lightbulb: the Sylvania Smart Multicolor A19.

You won’t find it on the CES show floor, but LEDVANCE is showing its latest smart bulb in its hotel suite in Las Vegas. The bulb can be controlled using an iPhone or iPad running iOS 10 and later or an Apple TV, removing any excuse that Apple aficionados might have for stumbling around in the dark. Adverse to tapping and swiping? No problem—the Sylvania Smart’s still got your back: The bulb can also be controlled using Siri.

Rumor says Apple Watch Series 3 to bring battery,...

While all eyes are on the gizmos and gadgets being unveiled at CES this week, a new rumor is serving up some details about the next generation of Apple Watch. According to a report by the China-based Economic Daily News (and spotted by DigiTimes), the third generation of Apple’s wearable will focus on two key areas: battery life and performance.

Apple unveiled the second generation of Apple Watch alongside the iPhone 7 in September. Dubbed Series 2, the device features a brighter display, a better processor in the S2 chip, and water resistance, but kept the same design as its predecessor. Additionally, while Apple didn’t tout specific improvements to the battery, our...

Fake dental floss package stickers. Idea via Jack Dweck on Product Hunt. 

Here's your laugh of the day. On Product Hunt, Jack Dweck posted a product he'd love to see -- fake dental floss stickers for the AirPod charging case to keep would-be thieves from walking away with your expensive headphones. 

Well, nobody's making them yet, but it turns out that others had the same idea and were peeling stickers off of real floss containers and placing them on the AirPod case, as seen in the images below (scroll the image to see the floss stickers on AirPods).

CES: Aura home security system is iOS compatible

At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Cognitive Systems Corp., an advanced RF technology company, will launch Aura, a “thoughtful” security system for the home that uses patented spectrum analytics technology to detect and monitor motion, without using cameras.

Aura is a home security system that uses technology patented by Cognitive Systems to monitor the disruption of wireless signals caused by movement in the home, without the use of cameras. Household members are notified on their smartphones of unauthorized motion that occurs anywhere in the home. 

With the two-piece system, Aura provides full coverage for the average home, even in rooms where people are typically unwilling to place cameras, according to Taj Manku, co-founder of Cognitive Systems. Aura can also recognize the presence of known members, show motion patterns in the home, provide a timeline of activity, deliver tailored notifications to homeowners’ smartphones, and interact...

Opinion: Why the LG 5K UltraFine isn’t the MacBook...

When I decided the time had come to spend a lot of money on a shiny new MacBook Pro, I was tempted to get all the expense out of the way at once and upgrade displays at the same time. The problem is finding someone to take my money …

I currently use an Apple Thunderbolt Display in my home office, and with the simple addition of a Thunderbolt 2 to 3 adapter was able to continue doing so. It’s a great display for its time, but is showing its age a little. The screen is non-Retina and doesn’t compete with the brightness and color range of the 2016 MacBook Pro. The bezels also look rather large by today’s standards.

The display Apple would like me to buy as a replacement is the LG 5K UltraFine, but I have to say that it’s not really grabbing me …

Apple wants to turn your iOS and watchOS devices...

Remember the language translators in Star Trek? Apple wants to give your iPhone, iPad, and perhaps your Apple Watch such capabilities. The company has filed for a patent (number 9,535,906) for a “mobile device having human translation capability with positional feedback.”

According to the invention, iOS and watchOS devices could include a translator to translate a word or phrase that is in a first human language and that is entered via a first virtual keyboard displayed on the touch sensitive screen, into a second human language. The touch sensitive screen would display the translated word or phrase and a second virtual keyboard would show characters in the second human language, in response to the accelerometer detecting a change in the physical orientation of the device or movement of the device. In other words, once the translation is complete you could move your Apple device to switch between the languages.

In the patent filing, Apple...

TidBITS details major PDF editing issues with macOS...

When macOS Sierra 10.12 was first released, one of the biggest problems reported was for users of Fujitsu's ScanSnap scanners, who had a number of issues with PDFs generated by the scanner application. Those problems were resolved by Apple with macOS 10.12.1, but now Adam Engst at TidBITS is reporting that the issues with PDFs are not limited to just ScanSnap, but just about any application that works with Apple's PDFKit framework.

Engst notes that he received a note from Mindwrap developer Craig Landrum in October that pointed out that the issue was in PDFKit. According to Landrum, "The primary problem with Sierra with respect to PDFs is that Apple chose to rewrite the PDFKit framework in macOS 10.12 and it broke a number of things that PDF-related developers relied upon (I write scan-to-PDF software and know other developers who were impacted). Software that uses third-party PDF libraries probably runs fine,...

Growing a different Apple

Vindu Goel, New York Times:

Founded in 2014 by three former senior managers from Apple’s iPod and iPhone groups, Pearl has tried to replicate what its leaders view as the best parts of Apple’s culture, like its fanatical dedication to quality and beautiful design. But the founders also consciously rejected some of the less appealing aspects of life at Apple, like its legendary secrecy and top-down management style.

This story is about trying to create a new company from the seeds of Apple’s approach and culture, but without the deeply compartmentalized secrecy for which Apple is so famous.

Pearly is best known for a product called RearVision, a backup camera add-on for cars without a factory installed system.

Interesting approach to product (building things for older model and lower-tier cars, a retrofit, aftermarket approach),...

The difference between Google Assistant and Siri

[VIDEO] Matt Birchler on putting Google Assistant and Siri through their paces:

The tech narrative is that Siri sucks and Google Assistant is the second coming. I have been using Siri for years, and have been going 100% in on Android over the last few weeks and have given Google Assistant a solid effort. My experience has been a little different than the popular narrative.

Watch the video for the details. Bottom line, I recognize this experience. Siri does a lot really well. To maximize your Siri satisfaction, learn the boundaries, get a sense of what Siri does reliably that fits in your day-to-day workflow.

In my experience, Siri does a lot that’s pretty bulletproof. One example is reminders. If I need to remember something, the first thing I do is figure out an ideal time to be reminded, then pull out my iPhone or “Hey, Siri” my Apple Watch and ask Siri to remind me. If there’s failure here, it is always up front and obvious. And that’s easily repaired.

Rumor: 2017 Apple Watch to have better battery life...

Apple's third-generation Apple Watch is expected to be unveiled in the third quarter of 2017 and will focus on improving battery life and overall performance, but will sport no major redesign, according to the Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) — as noted by MacRumors.

Citing market watchers with knowledge of Quanta's plans, the report says improving battery life is the manufacturer's "main task.” Quanta declined to comment on the report, calling it "market speculation.”

Chances the rumor is true (IMHO): 50%. I’m sticking with my prediction that the Apple Watch Series 3 will offer LTE networking for true iPhone independence. It will be offered in a round, as well as square casing, and (no surprise) be even thinner. The Apple Watch 3 also sport ambient display technology for better visibility and additional sensors for even better health and fitness tracking, according to my crystal ball.

Google Home vs. Amazon Echo: The ecosystem divisions...

Dan Moren, Six Colors:

At present, there’s certainly not much to recommend the Home to people who already own an Echo or Echo Dot. Most of what the Home can do, the Echo can do just as well, with the exception of translation and Chromecast support.

Those on the fence about which smart speaker to buy have a less enviable decision. Both are attractive, well-made devices in their own way, and both will scratch that itch of a ubiquitous assistant at your constant beck and call. To date, the Echo remains the heavyweight champion of the market, thanks to its deep bench of features and third-party skills, but it would be unwise to underestimate Google’s resources and expertise if the company decides this is a field where it wants to devote its energy.

It’s early days for the always-on, stay-at-home assistant. One thing that is clear: Google Home and Amazon Echo are extensions of their relative ecosystems. If and when Apple builds one, I expect their fixed assistant to...

Samsung to release findings of Galaxy Note7 probe...

Samsung will offer a full explanation of the Galaxy Note7 smartphone fires sometime later this month according to South Korean newspaper JoongAng Ilbo.

The device, which launched in late August, began experiencing instances in which the devices exploded or caught fire when charging. At the time, the company said the underlying issue was “problematic” batteries installed in a very limited number of the smartphones sold.

The rumor mill has indicated that Samsung may have pushed suppliers to meet tighter deadlines in order to make an earlier launch. This, in turn, may have lead to technical oversights that allowed for some of the batteries to catch fire. In October, Samsung stated that it was examining all aspects of the device but had been unable to replicate the problem.

Samsung issued a Galaxy Note7 recall in September, and permanently discontinued the smartphone in October after some replacement devices caught fire. Samsung has urged customers to return...

If you want the Touch Bar experience that comes on some models of the 2016 MacBook Pro but can’t afford the new laptop, you can experience it on your current Mac with he Duet Display app.

The app — well, actually, it’s two apps: one for your Mac and one for your iOS device — also allows you to use your iDevice as an extra display. I use Duet Display to set up my iPad Pro as a secondary display for my 12-inch MacBook when I’m traveling. It works seamlessly.

Developed by a team of ex-Apple engineers, Duet Display delivers a retina display at 60 frames per second with zero lag. Before Duet Display, I used an app called Air Display that also allowed you to use your iOS device as a second display. However, it used Wi-Fi for connectivity, so there was noticeable screen lag on my iPad. Duet Display uses a physical connection.

When you begin setting up the apps, it’s easy to see that ex-Apple engineers did the work. You need two software applications to make duet work...

If you can’t stand fitness-tracking bands or smartwatches, maybe you should put a ring on it.

Not just any old ring, obviously—a waterproof, Bluetooth, titanium activity-tracking ring with a built-in accelerometer, LED lighting, and an optical heart rate sensor just like you would find in any top-of-the-line fitness band. It’s called Motiv, and it might just be the most subtle activity tracker on the market.

The $200 ring, which was announced this week at CES and starts shipping in early March, aims to make fitness-tracking totally unobtrusive. You can wear the low-profile, 8mm ring constantly—to bed, in the pool, while showering—just like a wedding band, although it needs to be charged every five days.

iOS market share is up, macOS is down in December

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for iOS rose, but that for macOS dipped in December.

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 6.07% of the global market share in December, down from 6.74% percent in November (that’s global market share; in the U.S. it’s over 13%). April 2016’s 9.2% was an all-time high, according to NetMarketShare’s measurements. Windows remains dominant with 91.72% as of December.

iOS had 29.52% of the mobile operating system market share in December, down from 25.71% in November. This compares to 65.87% for Android, 1.76% for Windows Phone, and 1.44% for Java ME. The all-time high for iOS was in July 2012 with 65.94%.

Family Sues Apple For Not Making Thing It Patented

An anonymous reader writes: A lawsuit filed against Apple last week argues that, by not actually making a product that it patented, the company is partly responsible for an automobile accident. According to Jalopnik, James and Bethany Modisette are suing the tech company after a car crash two years ago that killed one of their daughters and injured the rest of the family. The driver of the car who hit them had been using Apple's FaceTime video chat at the time. The patent in question was first applied for in 2008, and describes "a lock-out mechanism to prevent operation of one or more functions of handheld computing devices by drivers when operating vehicles," such as texting or video chatting. The complaint cites Apple's "failure to design, manufacture, and sell the Apple iPhone 6 Plus with the patented, safer, alternative design technology" -- in other words, lack of the program's inclusion -- as a "substantial factor" in the crash.

Craig Hockenberry’s ‘Making Sense of Color...

When I was an incoming freshman at Drexel University in 1991, the school had a program, in collaboration with Apple, that allowed students to buy Macintosh computers at a significant discount. I had narrowed my choices to two: a Mac LC and a Mac SE/30. The SE/30 was significantly faster. But I wound up choosing the LC for one reason: the LC came with a color display, and the SE/30’s display was black and white. Even today, I love the original Mac’s 9-inch black and white display, but even then, just seven years after the Mac debuted, that love was nostalgic.

A color display was, for me, an irresistible draw.

The display on that Mac LC now sounds quaint. It measured only 12 inches diagonally (common for notebooks today, but the LC was a desktop), with 512 × 384 pixel resolution. A retina display it was not. And it could only display 256 colors at a time. Today that sounds ludicrous. In 1991 it sounded luxurious — most Macs were black-and-white and many PCs with color...

Resolution: Support Apple World Today through Team...

Note: Apple World Today is still in "holiday mode" today, but we'll have occasional updates throughout the day.

As we get into 2017 and will soon celebrate two full years of AWT, we'd like to ask a favor of those of you who read the site each and every day, but don't support Apple World Today through our Team AWT program. The favor? Consider joining Team AWT to provide continuing support of our mission and get some great stuff in return!

To join Team AWT, make a one-year commitment of $60 -- that's just $5 per month. That commitment can be made using Apple Pay, Credit/Debit Card or PayPal by clicking that "Join Team AWT" button in the sidebar or clicking this link.

Review: Taking your iPhone 7/7 Plus photography...

Without a doubt, my favorite feature on any iPhone has always been the camera. It serves as more than good enough as a daily shooter, and new apps and accessories are being released everyday that help take that experience further. The first iPhone accessories I really got into, back when I had my iPhone 4, were wide-angle lenses and I still love them to this day. Recently I’ve been on the lookout for a lens for the iPhone 7 Plus to recommend for those just starting out with iPhone camera enhancements. I think I found the right product with the Aukey 120° wide-angle Ora Lens. Let’s take a look at what the lens can do for you and your iPhone photography…

Get HyperDrive, the ultimate Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Hub...

HyperDrive is a compact, super-fast USB-C hub for the new MacBook Pro and the first to take full advantage of Thunderbolt 3 speeds. Add back HDMI, two USB 3.1 ports, a microSD/SD slot, as well as Thunderbolt 3 & USB-C ports with a sleek aluminum hub available in both silver and space gray to match the new 2016 MacBook Pro perfectly.

Unlike most USB-C dongles which still run on slow USB 3.0 (5Gb/s) speed, HyperDrive is 10X faster by using not one but two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C connections. Not only are other Thunderbolt 3 docks much bigger and bulkier making them nowhere near as portable, HyperDrive is also the first and only hub to take advantage of Thunderbolt 3’s maximum bandwidth to deliver more ports in the smallest possible footprint. That means you can use all ports on HyperDrive...

iOS 10.3 beta with new "Theatre" mode...

Note: Apple World Today is still in "holiday mode" today, but we'll have occasional updates throughout the day.

iOS 10.3 is apparently on the way, at least in a beta version that could be made available to developers as soon as January 10, 2017. At this point, the latest official version of Apple's mobile operating system is 10.2, with 10.2.1 currently in developer and public beta.

Not much is known about what new features will come with iOS 10.3. It's possible that the new version could be equipped with improved Apple Pencil support for new iPads expected in March or April, although early beta versions probably won't provide clues of that support until test hardware is available. 

Australian Sonny Dickson, who occasionally comes out with some interesting rumors, posted this note on Twitter on December 30, 2016 along with the rumor that iOS 10.3 beta 1 would drop on January 10th:

Looking Ahead to CES: This Will Be a Big One


CES week is here, and it's the one week of the year I look forward to looking back on. CES is a killer show -- not because you are up to your armpits in interesting new products, but because it is so spread out that it'll kill your legs as you hike all over the damn place. One year, I walked so much I actually ripped the soles off both shoes. What is weird about this show is that it really comes too early for vendors to have much of what they intend to have in stores by the end of the year. So, it fails to deliver the impact it once did.

Daily Deal: Brighten up that dirty keyboard with...

Keyboards can be downright gross. I'm looking at mine right now, and even though it's just a little over a year old, some of the key caps (C and D especially) are starting to fade and the entire thing just looks grungy. That's why I was thrilled to see this deal on a pair of Flapjacks II Mac Keyboard Covers for only $29.99 (that's 24% off the regular $40 price tag!). 

Mmmm. Fresh Flapjacks II for your MacBook!

Flapjacks are flexible, durable, waterproof silicone covers that are designed to fit specific models of the MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. You'll be able to get a pair of 'em and can switch out as you wish. The Flapjacks II line comes in flashy, bright and fun designs that not only protect your keyboard, but...

Rumor: Apple supplier Inventec expanding AirPods...

If you’re hankering for a pair of AirPods but supplies have been out of stock, things might be about to change for the better.

Apple supplier Inventec, who appears to be the sole provider of Apple’s AirPods at this time, has started expanding capacity at its plants to satisfy worldwide demand for the wireless devices.

A current report via the Economic Daily New indicates that Inventec has brought on extra shifts and is expanding manufacturing capacity and working hours for assembly staff building the device.

Apple’s AirPods, Powerbeats 3, and Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones all feature a the Apple-designed W1 chip that makes it easier to pair with multiple Apple devices. In addition to the W1, AirPods also include beam-forming microphones, accelerometers, infrared sensors, and a small charging and carrying case that will provide more power on the go as well as the sync mechanism.

Current orders for the AirPods through Apple’s online store still carry...

Accessible Apple: The 12 Requests of Christmas, Day 7

This is the seventh post in our annual 12-part series covering the accessibility features we would like to see Apple bring to its products in the coming year.

This series is being put together by Accessibility Editor Alex Jurgensen, with the help of several contributors.

For the seventh request of Christmas, we ask Apple to give to us:

7. An Enhanced Spellchecker for macOS

macOS has a built-in spellchecker that can be used to check for misspelled words across the system, including messages in Mail, documents in TextEdit, web forms in Safari, and just about anywhere else you can enter text. This feature is extremely handy, but it sometimes feels half-baked. For example, the only indicator VoiceOver users can use to determine whether spellchecking has completed is a system sound played at the end of the process. There are also several bugs that can lead to random words being inserted into the text being spellchecked.

6. A Rewritten "Activities" System for VoiceOver on the Mac

In macOS, VoiceOver currently has a feature called "Activities" that allows users to define different VoiceOver settings for different tasks. For instance, an activity could be created by a user who works with multiple languages so as to use a different speaking rate and voice for each. Another example would be an activity created for the purposes of...
