Future Apple AirPods may be equipped with biometric...

Future AirPods from Apple may be equipped with biometric sensors, as hinted by a new Apple patent (number 2018006321) for “earbuds with compliant member.” Such wearables could track a user’s heart rate, core temperature, and more for exercise and health purposes.

Apple says that portable electronic device users have shown increasing interest in biometric tracking. Biometric sensors often need to be in close or even direct contact with the skin to properly measure and track biometric parameters.

However, requiring a user to place a sensor in direct contact with the skin to track these types of biometric data can be a pain, making adoption of the biometric tracking more difficult. Apple says that, consequently, mechanisms for unobtrusively measuring biometric parameters are highly desirable. 

According to the patent filing, at least one of the AirPods’ biometric sensors is configured to be pressed up against a portion of the tragus (prominence on the inner side...

Wipro — a global information technology, consulting and business process services company — has announced the expansion of its Live Workspace suite of offerings, to support Apple devices. This will allow enterprises to offer their employees a choice when deciding which tools enable them to be more productive, creative and collaborative.

This expanded capability from Wipro’s Live Workspace enables enterprises to design and deploy a corporate-provisioned employee choice program that incorporates Apple® devices within an enterprise’s IT infrastructure – a rising requirement, as more enterprises adopt or allow the use of Apple devices by their employees, says Kiran Desai, senior vice president, Global Infrastructure Services, Wipro.

This service allows enterprises to order Apple devices and have them distributed directly to employees with zero-touch deployment. The device policies and applications are configured over the...

Why can’t Siri answer flight status questions?

Dan Moren, SixColors:

Here’s a little experiment for you. Bring up the search field on your iPhone and type in a flight number—for example, WW126. Near the top of the results will be an option to bring up flight status. Tap that and you’ll get a nice little map of the flight as well some other info, like destination, duration, and so on.

Now, try asking Siri for the status of the same flight. I’ll wait.

Right. You’ll notice that Siri doesn’t seem to know anything about flight status, and instead goes straight to a web search.

There are two sides to this coin. On the one side, it’s infuriating when something that should clearly work a certain way refuses to work that way. You can see that your iPhone “knows” about flight status, and it seems obvious that Siri should, at the very least, be able to pass through a request to the underlying interface.

On the other side, I’m betting that the reason Siri is unable to do something that seems, on the...

Apple takes the lead position in the global...

The worldwide wearables market continued its upward trajectory in both the fourth quarter (4Q17) and full year 2017 with total shipment volumes reaching new records. And thanks to a surge in smartwatch shipment volumes, Apple moved past competitors Fitbit and Xiaomi to claim overall leadership for both the quarter and the year. 

According to data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker, total volumes for the quarter reached 37.9 million units, up 7.7% from the 35.2 million units shipped in the same quarter a year ago. For the full year, total wearable device shipments reached 115.4 million units, up 10.3% from the 104.6 million units shipped in 2016.

"The 10.3% year-over-year growth in 2017 is a marked decline from the 27.3% growth we saw in 2016," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC's Wearables team. "The slowdown is...

Selling HomePod

Jean-Louis Gassée, MondayNote, on trying to find a way to sell the Mac in the dark days of 1985, with Steve Jobs recently gone:

Position the Mac as a Graphics Based Business System (GBBS). The Business System part was adman puffery meant to project gravitas, but the reference to graphics made unarguable sense: The Mac’s Graphical User Interface (GUI) was clearly a distinguishing factor at the time.

Everyone in the room loved the idea. Rather than take on the whole market, Apple would define and dominate a niche. As the Valley marketing sage put it (quoting Julius Caesar), better to be the chief of a small village in the Alps than second-in-command in Rome.


Thanks to Jobs’ vision and powers of seduction, a couple of “serious developers”, Adobe and Aldus, helped transform the GBBS air guitar into a reality. Adobe contributed the PostScript software engine for the LaserWriter’s breakthrough typography and graphics. Aldus came up with the PageMaker...

Apple offers advice to avoid phishing email scams

Apple has shared a new support document to help App Store and iTunes users avoid phishing emails that look like legitimate emails from the tech giant.

If you receive an email about an App Store or iTunes Store purchase, and you’re not sure whether it is real, you can look for a couple of things that can help confirm that the message is from Apple. Genuine purchase receipts—from purchases in the App Store, iTunes Store, iBooks Store, or Apple Music—include your current billing address, which scammers are unlikely to have. You can also review your App Store, iTunes Store, iBooks Store, or Apple Music purchase history.

Apple notes that emails about your App Store, iTunes Store, iBooks Store, or Apple Music purchases will never ask you to provide this information over email: a Soocial Security Number; your mother’s maiden name; full...

macOS and iOS market share both rise in February

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for both macOS and iOS both increased last month. 

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 8.41% of the global market share in February, up from from 8.21% percent in December (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 88.79%.

iOS had 29.59% in January, up from 29.52% in December. This compares to 68.71% for Android.

NetMarketShares’ monthly surveys don’t measure market share in terms of computer systems sold. Instead they sample data from visitors to some 40,000 web sites operated by their clients. And note that NetMarketShare’s numbers don’t equate to sales.

Photo Mechanic is a pro photo browser with auto...

By Eric Vlientinck

Photo Mechanic from Camera Bits originally served to help photo editors quickly sift through the hundreds of photos they get on their desk each day. But with it, you can tag, color-code, and star-rate photographs, but its most powerful feature, Variables, allows you to automate metadata writing and routing of your photos to specific locations.

To edit images you still need a true image editor, such as Adobe Lightroom. It can be easily integrated, however, with anything from Lightroom to a large-scale DAM using its dazzling number of Variables.

Using Photo Mechanic, the workflow starts by ingesting photos and reviewing or comparing images until you find the best one among a series. You can crop and rotate, but these edits exist only in Photo Mechanic, unless you explicitly apply them. To tap into Photo Mechanic’s Variables, you’ll need to rate photos and add metadata. The...

Longer upgrade cycles and an increasing number of consumers opting to buy used models poses a threat to future sales of flagship models from the likes of Apple and Samsung, argue industry commentators.

Back in 2014, the average upgrade cycle was 23 months – likely attributable to most consumers upgrading every two years, while a much smaller number upgraded every year. But that number has already hit 31 months, says BayStreet Research, and is set to climb higher still  …

The old Option key trick for your Mac's Wi-Fi...

I heard this on one of my favorite podcasts—MacGeekGab—and it reminded me that if I had forgotten about it, so (perhaps) have you.

So, here's the tip: Hold down the Option key before you click the Wi-Fi menu to see additional useful information regarding your connection and available networks.

Here's my Wi-Fi menu without the Option key:

And, here's my Wi-Fi menu with the Option key:

The most important bit of information (at least to me) is the MCS Index. While not a precise measure of network throughput, I've found that the higher the number, the better/faster the connection in that spot, at least for downloading or streaming media.

I did a few quick spot checks around my home and office and they seem to confirm my hypothesis:

Apple Maps boosts directions, lane guidance in...

This could definitely be helpful.

Apple on Wednesday boosted its transit directions and lane guidance for its Apple Maps apps.

The feature, which originally provided transit directions for Baltimore, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Sydney, Toronto, and around 300 cities in China upon launch added several other cities in 2016.

On Wednesday, Apple added transit directions for Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville to the list.

Apple also expanded its lane guidance feature and has added Austria, South Africa, and Switzerland to the list.

In total, lane guidance is now available in the following 14 countries: the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

Even With Double the Subscribers, Spotify Says Apple...

On Wednesday, Spotify filed for a direct listing in the U.S., sidestepping the traditional IPO process, and now we're starting to see some of the true financial guts of the company -- and some of the significant risks it faces from challenging services from Apple and Google. From a report: Apple, for example, charges apps a percentage of revenue for subscriptions processed through the App Store. Apple Music, meanwhile, will always deliver Apple 100 percent of the subscription revenue that it receives from subscribers (sans record fees and all that kind of stuff, of course). Apple, too, has a direct integration with its iOS devices and also a huge amount of brand recognition, even though Spotify is a massive service. Spotify says it has 159 million monthly active users and 71 million premium subscribers, while Apple has 36 million paying subscribers as of February 2018. Spotify said, "In addition, Apple and Google also own application store platforms and are charging in-application...

iPhone X has the best camera of all current smartphones, according to new rankings by Consumer Reports. It tops the list, followed by the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Apple’s iPhone 7 comes in fifth, with the iPhone 6s Plus taking sixth place. The iPhone 7 Plus also sits in the top 10 at the ninth spot. 

In its report, Consumer Reports said all 10 of the phones it tested did well in its still-image quality tests, which are designed to “evaluate resolution, dynamic range, color accuracy, and visual noise.” At the top of the results, however, were the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone 8 ranked just behind its sibling; all three tallied “very good” ratings. Consumer Reports found the iPhone X and iPhone 8 to be “excellent” for video quality, whereas the iPhone 8 Plus was found to be “very good.”

Review: PowerVision PowerEgg Camera Drone

What looks like a large white egg, weighs 4.6 pounds (2,100 grams), shoots 4K photos and video, and flies? Sounds like a joke, right? It's not, but if it was the punch line would be the PowerVision PowerEgg (US$1,288), a very unique camera drone that stands apart from the usual quadcopters that are so prevalent today. As you’ll find in this review, the PowerEgg is an extremely capable drone that both new and experienced pilots should consider.

Why you should use Malwarebytes to protect your Mac

When we cover dozens of stories each year about Mac related security issues and malware discovered in the wild, it’s hard to imagine that the misconception that “Macs don’t get viruses” still exists. Although there is some truth to it. Macs are much more resilient to what are commonly classified as “viruses” and in general malware is much more rare for Mac users versus Windows. But that doesn’t mean Mac users don’t need to protect themselves from malware threats. And it’s not just malware, there are a long list of other threats that Mac users should be aware of and protecting themselves against.

The security experts at long-time Mac software developer Malwarebytes are often the source of security stories we cover throughout the year on 9to5Mac. We’ve come to trust its team for the many discoveries and coverage of malware and security related issues for Mac users. That’s why it’s easy to give a recommendation...

Apple Pay leads Google Pay in usage, interest among...

Dealspotr — a site “brands, influencers and shoppers connect to share today's best deals” — says that its research shows that Apple Pay leads Google Pay in usage and interest among Millennials and GenZ-ers.

Dealspotr ran a survey during February using Google Market Research. They surveyed 1,000 people total: 500 Millennials (females and males aged 25 to 34) and 500 Generation Z (females and males aged 18 to 24). 

Dealspotr found a higher adoption of Apple Pay among young adults than they expected. Their research shows that 15% of young adults have used Apple’s mobile payment service while shopping online.

In-store, 11% of Millennials and 10% of GenZers have used Apple Pay to pay for items in the checkout line. Apple Pay (10%) was significantly more popular than rival payment platforms Google Pay (4%) and Samsung Pay (2%). However, credit card and PayPal remain the dominant forms of payment (actual and...

Human rights groups worried about Apple’s iCloud...

Apple is moving iCloud accounts registered in mainland China to state-run Chinese servers on Wednesday along with the digital keys needed to unlock them, and this has privacy advocates and human rights groups worried.

"The changes being made to iCloud are the latest indication that China's repressive legal environment is making it difficult for Apple to uphold its commitments to user privacy and security," Amnesty International warned in a statement.

“Apple has been criticized for blocking Chinese users' access to the Apple News app and for removing VPN apps from the App Store in China,” the human rights group says. “The changes being made to iCloud are the latest indication that China’s repressive legal environment is making it difficult for Apple to uphold its commitments to user privacy and security.”...

WatchKit is a sweet solution that will only ever...

Marco Arment:

Developers weren’t given access to make native apps until the iPhone’s second year. Before the native development kit was ready, Apple tried to pass off web apps as a “sweet solution” for third-party apps, but nobody was fooled.

Apple wasn’t using web apps for their own built-in iPhone apps — they were using native code and frameworks to make real apps. Developers like me did our best with web apps, but they sucked. We simply couldn’t make great apps without access to the real frameworks.


Developing Apple Watch apps is extremely frustrating and limited for one big reason: unlike on iOS, Apple doesn’t give app developers access to the same watchOS frameworks that they use on Apple Watch.

Instead, we’re only allowed to use WatchKit, a baby UI framework that would’ve seemed rudimentary to developers even in the 1990s. But unlike the iPhone’s web apps, WatchKit doesn’t appear to be a stopgap — it seems to be Apple’s long-term...

A survey of 1,000 young adults Americans found that more than 10% of them had used Apple Pay to make a purchase in a retail store. This was well ahead of Google Pay at 4% and Samsung Pay’s 2%.

The figure was even higher when it came to online purchases in the same 18-35 year old demographic …

M. Night Shyamalan to produce straight-to-series...


M. Night Shyamalan is heading to Apple.

The streaming service has given a straight-to-series order to a psychological thriller series from writer Tony Basgallop that Shyamalan will executive produce. Plot details for the series are being kept under wraps. The half-hour series has received a 10-episode order, with Shyamalan also set to direct the first episode.

To me, M. Night Shyamalan is exasperating. I am a huge fan of The Sixth Sense, and the connected series, Unbreakable, Split, and the upcoming Glass. But interspersed throughout those movies is a series of projects that just left me cold. And there were a lot of them.

Shyamalan’s most recent TV effort was Wayward Pines, well received, but it ultimately ended after two seasons.

Fingers crossed on this one.

SecurityLab gives Apple’s iPhone top billing when it...

An analysis of security updates by SecurityLab for different smartphone brands gives the iPhone top billing. When it came to Android brands, however, “only two managed halfway decent ratings, with many big brands being rated poorly,” notes 9to5Mac

SecurityLab tweeted a table which examined four different factors:

  • The shortest time to publish a security update following discovery of a vulnerability.
  • The maximum delay in making the update available to all.
  • Whether or not updates were independent of carriers.
  • How long a device is supported with security updates

Apple was rated green in all categories. Its shortest time to issue an update was measured in days,...

Timers, reminders, alarms—oh, my!

Dr. Drang, Leancrew:

I decided to dig into the many ways you can set timed alerts on your Apple devices and how the alert systems vary from device to device. It is, you will not be surprised to learn, a mess.

This is a fascinating read, everything you’d ever want to know about timers, reminders, and alarms, and the way they are shared amongst the varied OSes in the Apple ecosystem.

But to me, this is emblematic of many other ecosystem elements. As you read through this, think about photos, music, your documents, even Siri access.

At the same time, to be fair, realize that we are at HomePodOS version 1.0. Surely the HomePod sharing model will evolve significantly over time.

Elon Musk wants to use satellites to bring broadband...


When Elon Musk’s SpaceX heaved two communications satellites aloft last week, he joined a space race that’s foiled plenty of other dreamers.

Billions of dollars have vanished in the quest to provide internet service from low-earth orbit. Globalstar Inc. and Iridium Communications Inc. crashed into bankruptcy but are still at it, while another effort folded despite backing from Bill Gates, Boeing Co. and others.

But the failure of others has never stopped Musk. Especially where space is concerned.

Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies Corp., Greg Wyler’s OneWeb, Boeing, and Canada’s Telesat are among the companies that have asked the Federal Communications Commission for permission to offer broadband service using satellites.

This is a race. And I believe someone in this pack might ultimately succeed.

And if that does happen, will it lower the cost of internet access? Will it provide broadband everywhere, an alternative to cell...

Former Apple exec named CEO/president of the...

The Computer History Museum named former Apple executive Dan’l Lewin as its new CEO and president. He was one of Steve Jobs’ top guys back in the early days of Apple, notes Cult of Mac

Lewin served in a number of marketing roles from 1981 to 1985 and was recruited by Jobs to join his new company, NeXT, after Jobs was fired from Apple. 

Lewin will lead the organization through its next phase of growth, including expanding the museum’s interpretation efforts and content and media creation to further reach and impact global audiences. He will develop and direct the strategy, fundraising, and ongoing operations of the museum, including those of its Exponential Center — dedicated to entrepreneurship and innovation — and the Center for Software History. Lewin will officially assume the position on March 7.

Activists are organizing a 24-hour boycott of Apple, Amazon,and FedEx, due to their ties to the NRA, on March 1, according to Business Insider.

FedEx says it will continue its discount program for NRA members. Apple and Amazon have stayed silent about their whether they will remove the NRA's TV channel (NRAtv) from their streaming options.

Launched in 2016, NRAtv includes 22 programs. It’s  available via theApple TV, Amazon Prime, Roku, SiriusXM, iHeartRadio, YouTube, iTunes, and Google Chromecast.

The protest organizers argue that NRAtv and NRA discount programs give money to the gun-rights group and foster gun violence in the U.S., notes Business Insider.

Ring went on Shark Tank, asked for $7 million. No...

LA Times:

Ring doorbells are already being used by 2 million customers. Its improbable success comes five years after its founder, serial entrepreneur Jamie Siminoff, was rejected on the TV show “Shark Tank.”

Rejected isn’t quite right. He got offers, just none that made sense to him.

But the company proved there was demand for video-enabled doorbells, which enable users to see outside their homes via smartphone or computer. The technology provides a sense of security and a salve for one of the most nagging problems in the e-commerce era: package thieves.

There’s a certain irony there. Seems to me, the biggest victim of package thieves is Amazon, who ponys up a replacement when its packages don’t make it into customer hands.

Ring is also an excellent complement to Amazon Key, the program that allows package delivery services access to your house to leave a...

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...
