New Apple TV Goes All-In for Apps

Apple on Wednesday held a mammoth two-hour event to introduce a long-awaited new Apple TV set-top box, a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and the expected iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Further, Apple announced new Apple Watch colors and bands, and a special collaboration with Hermes. While the iPhone is clearly Apple's most important product, it's arguable that the Apple TV is its most important new addition. Apple CEO Tim Cook acknowledged that TV "plays a huge role in our lives" but noted that the experience hasn't changed much in decades.

New Apple TV has 2 GB RAM, included 802.11ac WiFi is...

On Apple’s public specs page, it says that the new Apple TV includes an A8 chip and that’s about it in terms of the bundled SoC. However, Apple’s developer documentation goes into more detail specifically listing the hardware as having 2 GB RAM (via Steve Troughton-Smith). This means the internals are actually better than the A8 in the iPhone 6 and latest-generation iPod touch, which only have 1 GB of RAM.

These are the specs Apple lists in the developer documentation:

What Apple didn’t announce at Wednesday's event

The rumors and conjecture flow freely through the Internet before an Apple event, so much so that it’s easy to unconsciously raise your expectations of what to expect when the Apple event finally does happen. Wednesday’s event was filled with lots of new Apple products, but invariably, someone will ask, “What about…?” So, here’s a list of the products Apple didn’t mention and why they were absent.

iPhone 6c

The thought was that an iPhone 6c—essentially an updated version of the colorful, plastic iPhone 5c—would fill the role of the most affordable, smallest iPhone model. And when Apple released a new iPod touch in July, it seemed like an iPhone 6c was feasible.

Apple Introduces iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus

Apple has announced iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, adding a powerful new dimension to iPhone’s revolutionary Multi-Touch interface. The new iPhones introduce 3D Touch, which enables intuitive new ways to access features and interact with content. iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus feature Retina HD displays made from the strongest glass on any smartphone and 7000 series aluminum, the same alloy used in the aerospace industry, in metallic finishes that now include rose gold. The new iPhones also introduce a transformative new approach to photography called Live Photos, bringing still images to life by capturing a moment in motion. “The only thing that has changed with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is everything — 3D Touch lets users interact with iPhone in entirely new and fun ways, and the innovative Live Photos brings your pictures to life,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “These are the most advanced iPhones ever, with 7000 series aluminum, ion...

Apple Brings Innovation Back to Television with All-...

Apple has announced the all-new Apple TV, bringing a revolutionary experience to the living room based on apps built for the television. Apps on Apple TV let you choose what to watch and when you watch it. And with the new Siri Remote, you can search with your voice for TV shows and movies across multiple content providers simultaneously. Apple TV runs the all-new tvOS operating system, based on Apple’s iOS, enabling iOS developers to create new apps and games specifically for Apple TV and deliver them directly to users through the new Apple TV App Store. “There has been so much innovation in entertainment and programming through iOS apps, we want to bring that same excitement to the television,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “Apps make the TV experience even more compelling for viewers and we think apps represent the future of TV.”

Apple Introduces iPad Pro Featuring Epic 12.9-inch...

Apple has introduced the all-new iPad Pro, featuring a 12.9-inch Retina display with 5.6 million pixels and the new 64-bit A9X chip. The new larger iPad Pro is thin and light and provides all-day battery life. Apple also introduced Apple Pencil for iPad Pro and the new Smart Keyboard, available for purchase separately. “iPad Pro is the most advanced and powerful iPad we have ever made. Its beautiful and large 12.9-inch Retina display has 5.6 million pixels and provides an immersive experience for content and apps. The iPad Pro is far and away the fastest iOS device we have ever made — its A9X chip beats most portable PCs in both CPU and graphics tasks, but is thin and light enough to hold all day,” said Apple’s Philip Schiller. “The innovative Apple Pencil and new Smart Keyboard enable users to customize their iPad Pro experience to the particular apps they use and the work they do, making iPad Pro ideal for everything from professional productivity to advanced 3D design.”

Apple Watch Hermès is a true testament to that belief.”

Moshi reveals premium cases for iPhone 6s and iPhone...

Moshi has revealed three new premium cases for the just-announced iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. As you'd expect from the company, all three are beautiful and feature-packed!

The iGlaze Ion (above, $100) is a battery case for the iPhone 6s featuring a two-piece design. As battery cases go, it's quite unique -- most of the time your iPhone 6s is encased in a nice slim case, but when you need power, it slides into the battery pack for extra juice on the go. It's available in two finishes: steel black (seen here) and brushed titanium.

The iGlaze Luxe (above, $50 for iPhone 6s, $55 for iPhone 6s Plus) uses a sleek metal frame milled from aircraft-grade aluminum. It provides the level of protection you'll want on your new iPhone, without the bulk and weight of a traditional case. Available in orange, rose pink, satin gold and titanium finishes, this is a beautiful line...

Apple will release iOS 9 to the public on September...

SAN FRANCISCO—Apple officially announced iOS 9 at WWDC in June, and adventurous users could start playing with the public beta in July, but today the company announced a public release date for the finished version of the operating system: Wednesday, September 16.

The software update will arrive a couple of days ahead of Apple's latest iPhones, which was to be expected given Apple's past behavior. An unexpected benefit of this release is that it won't drop support for any device currently running iOS 8—iOS 9.0 will run on iPhones as old as 2011's 4S, iPads as old as 2011's iPad 2 or 2012's iPad Mini, and both the fifth- and sixth-generation iPod Touch.

The new operating system is mostly about refinements, at least on small-screened iDevices. iOS 7's Helvetica Neue system...

New iPhones are here: iPhone 6s and 6s Plus debut...

Apple’s new iPhones don’t look a whole lot different from last year’s models, but the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have a next-generation multi-touch display that Cupertino expects will change the way you use a touchscreen.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said the iPhone 6 is the company’s most successful iPhone ever. How to top that? Well, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s and 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus will have 3D Touch displays that are similar to the Apple Watch’s Force Touch. A press will now unlock shortcuts in the apps you use every day, like Messages, Mail, Instagram, and more.

When you lightly press on an app on your home screen, a short list of shortcuts will pop up. For instance, using force touch on the camera icon will pop up a selfie shortcut. Facebook is using the feature to let you check in to a place or post a new status straight from your home screen.

Adblock Plus Returns To Android and Arrives On...

Mickeycaskill writes: Adblock Plus has returned to Android — two and a half years after ad blocking services were removed from Google Play — and has been released on iOS for the first time. Adblock Browser for Android has been in beta since late May, with well over 300,000 people downloading the beta in the browser's first week. Meanwhile the arrival of the app on iPhone means developer Eyeo has beaten Apple to the punch, as the company has confirmed iOS 9 will feature an adblocker built into Safari. "With the popularity of the iOS platform in places like the US, we considered it critical to offer an app in the Apple App Store," said Till Faida, co-founder of Adblock Plus. "We're thankful to Apple for working with us on this project and we look forward to their new iOS 9, which will give web developers additional ad-blocking tools. It's a big step for this industry."

Like the 3GS, 4S, and 5S before them, the phones are visually similar to their predecessors, and the devices focus mainly on internal upgrades and tweaks. The new phones will be available for preorder on September 12 and will officially launch on September 25.

The new phones are built out of the same 7000-series aluminum used in the Apple Watch, a change which should make them sturdier and less prone to bending. They retain their 4.7- and 5.5-inch screens, though, as well...

New Apple TV: Siri and the App Store are the stars...

Apple is re-entering the living room with the 2015 Apple TV, a new set-top box that streams video, plays games, and uses Siri to answer your every entertainment whim.

The last time Apple upgraded its living room hardware was more than two years ago, and even that was a minor refresh of the 2012 Apple TV. The new version is a significant upgrade, packing more powerful hardware and a full-blown app store.

Return of the puck

While the basic shape of the new Apple TV hasn’t changed, it is about 10 mm taller than its predecessor, presumably to make room for all the added computing power under the hood. Gone is the crusty old A5 processor, and in its place is a 64-bit A8 chip. Around the back, there’s HDMI and Ethernet, but apparently no optical audio output.

SAN FRANCISCO—The Apple TV just got its first big update since March of 2012, and it's a substantial upgrade for both hardware and software. The fourth-generation box should be much faster, and it will use that extra speed to run apps and games from its all-new app store. It also comes with a redesigned remote control to improve navigation, which has long been one of the Apple TV's weak points.

The iPad Pro, revealed during Wednesday’s Apple event, is the most powerful iOS device ever made, and “the biggest iPad news since the iPad,” Tim Cook said from the stage. The iPad Pro also has two new accessories: the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil.

The iPad Pro measures 12.9 inches on the diagonal. Half the width of the iPad Pro is exactly the height of the iPad Air 2—a perfect geometry for running apps side by side. With 5.6 million pixels in a 2732x2048 resolution, the iPad Pro has a higher resolution than the 15-inch MacBook Pro with retina display. The iPad’s new multitasking capabilities in iOS 9 were specifically designed to make the most out of the iPad Pro, Apple said.

Apple announces new Apple Watch bands and finishes,...

Apple Watch is looking better than ever, and now it will work better too, thanks to the release of its version 2 operating system next week.

The new features in watchOS 2 were revealed earlier this year, but now the OS has a shipping date: September 16. Apple also announced new Apple Watch bands and finishes, available today in 24 countries, and showed off a partnership with luxury-goods maker Hermes to bring its Double Tour bands—along with classic Hermes faces unique to those bands—to the Watch platform.

WatchOS 2 allows apps to run natively on the Watch and access hardware directly, such as tapping into the microphone, health sensors, and speaker. It can also display video, handle transit directions, and will offer new watch faces as well as third-party complications—the little details on watch faces, like moon phases. Time Travel allows using the digital crown to scan back and forth through past and future appointments and events.

Apple’s new iPad Pro is an expansive 12.9 inches,...

ars.AD.queue.push(["xrailTop", {sz:"300x251", kws:["bottom"], collapse: true}]);We were expecting new iPhones today, and we were even expecting Apple TV announcements, but whether Apple would update its iPad line was more difficult to say. It seems Apple is bucking its own announce-new-iPads-in-October trend, however, because the company just added a 12.9" iPad to its lineup.

The newly named iPad Pro is 6.9mm thick and weighs 1.57 lbs—slightly heavier than the 1.54 lb first-generation iPad. According to Apple, it will have a 10-hour battery life. It measures 12"×8.68"×0.27" compared to the iPad Air 2's dimensions of 9.4"×6.6"×0.24". The Pro weighs in at 1.57lb compared to the 0.98lb of the Air 2.

The new tablet will be called the iPad Pro, and the entry-level version comes with a healthy 32GB of storage, rather than the 16GB of the other iPad base models. The iPad Pro also comes in a 128GB version. Pricing on those Wi-Fi-only tiers is $799...

New Apple Watch models, WatchOS 2 coming on...

SAN FRANCISCO—Those of you who have bought an Apple Watch since they launched in April will soon be able to download your first major software update. Apple has announced that the final version of WatchOS 2 will be available to the public on September 16. To update the Apple Watch, open the app on your phone, tap General, and then tap Software Update.

Most of WatchOS 2's new features let third-party developers do stuff that Apple could already do with the hardware. This includes full access to the watch's sensors, the Digital Crown, the microphone, and the Taptic Engine. Developers will be able to build more complex animations, too—current WatchKit apps are much more limited by comparison, and they're largely made up of static cards.

Jeff Carlson lays out 6 somewhat hidden features in the OS X Photos applications. I knew most of them, but as always with these sorts of posts, the real value was in the ones I didn’t know. Nice job, Jeff.

How to connect AirPlay speakers to your Mac

New Apple Watch Product (RED) Sport Band seemingly...

9to5Mac has been reporting that Apple was planning some cosmetic updates to the Apple Watch, including new Sport bands and a gold aluminum Apple Watch Sport, for some time. A few hours ahead of Apple’s event, an image has appeared on Twitter depicting what appears to be a Product (RED) Apple Watch Sport band. To date, Apple has offered Apple Watch Sport bands in white, black, green, blue and pink.

Although Apple is supportive of the charity, the Apple Watch notably debuted without any Product (RED) affiliation. This appears to be changing today …

Moshi's Spatia is a great-sounding AirPlay...

Moshi's Spatia is a wireless sound system designed to work with Apple's AirPlay technology. It sounds great — and looks almost as good as it sounds. 

At US$399.95, the Spatia is pricey. However, if you want a svelte, attractive sound system to which you can wirelessly stream what’s on your iOS devices and Macs, the Moshi product may be calling your name.

The Spatia has a streamlined, modern look. Measuring 19.57 x 7.2 x 7.64 inches, it doesn't take up much space on a desktop or cabinet. And you'll be impressed how much sound is coming out of this (relatively) small sound system. 

I’ve yet to run across a speaker system lacking a separate, dedicated subwoofer that sounds as good as one with a separate, dedicated subwoofer, but the Spatia is as close as I've seen … or, rather heard. The mid-tones and highs are pristine, the lows are rich, and bass is surprisingly beefy...

Samsung's IoT Products Make Themselves at Home

Samsung last week plunged into the Internet of Things for the home market, unveiling a new hub to control connected gadgets, home and sleep monitors, and a smart washing machine. The company made the announcements at IFA 2015. The SmartThings Hub for home devices is based on technology Samsung acquired a year ago when it purchased SmartThings. It is built around a powerful processor that enables video monitoring, and it includes a battery backup that lasts up to 10 hours in case of a power outage.

Handy flowchart outlines your options for picking up...

In the old days, buying and paying for a new iPhone was simple: you typically paid $1-200 up-front, then the rest of the purchase cost was absorbed by carriers into the monthly rates they charged for their contracts. There was no easy way to tell how much of that monthly payment was for calls/texts/data and how much was paying off the balance of the cost of the phone.

Today, things are very different, with carriers being much more transparent about what you pay for your contract – if you choose to have one – and how much you pay for the iPhone itself. The WSJ has put together a simple infographic outlining the main options open to you … ...

The Apple Store goes down ahead of iPhone 6S/iPad...

As expected, the Apple Store has gone down ahead of Apple’s Hey Siri event later today at 10 AM PST. Although we don’t expect the iPhone, iPad Pro or Apple TV to be available to buy today, the site will return with information about the new products after the presentation is over. There is a chance that Apple’s updates to Apple Watch — new band colors and a new gold Sport watch — may be available immediately.

With the recent redesign of, integrating the shop directly into the store, some had expected the icon Apple Store is down trope to change. However, it seems like Apple has decided to preserve this tradition as...

All eyes on today’s iPhone 6S/iPad/Apple TV...

9to5Mac has been saying for a while that Apple’s Hey Siri event today will be a product blitz of announcements, with at least three major new products set to be shown off: the new iPhone 6S, the new larger iPad Pro and a revamped Apple TV with a new remote. There’s also likely to be a new iPad mini and some updates for Apple Watch — you can read it all in our roundup.

Some people were confused about why Apple is stuffing so many announcements into one event. Daring Fireball’s John Gruber offers one explanation: breaking tradition, there won’t be an October event this year.

A new lawsuit filed against gyroscope and accelerometer supplier for Apple, InvenSense, accuses the company of failing to tell investors about the concessions it made to secure a recent deal. InvenSense parts are used in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; executives should have warned investors, the suit alleges, that Apple was given a "sweetheart deal" that would hurt profits. "Instead of revealing the true condition of the company and its prospects, defendants hid those facts from investors and chose to issue strong guidance and paint a picture of a bright future with a new mega-customer," the complai...

Whatever it is, though, it's happening and you cannot stop it – not even with an application like this: but if PhotoWatermark can't prevent the copying of images, it can help photographers and artists considerably by adding identifying text to your image...

While the idea that Apple probably had another record-breaking holiday quarter (what the company calls fiscal 2015 Q1) is unsurprising to all but selected pundits, a spate of reports released on Monday may be painting a general portrait of not just significant improvement, but more importantly growth in key areas of importance both to investors and analysis as well as to the health of the company. Sales of Macs look to be way up, iOS devices are selling much better in a key foreign market, and Apple's suppliers are flourishing -- all signs that point to better-than-expected quarter....
