Apple

Apple is having another media event on October 16, just under a week after Re/code first predicted the date. The event will be in Apple's small town hall event space at its 1 Infinite Loop campus, implying a much smaller event than the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch event in the Flint Center last month.

If the rumor mill is to be believed, new iPads will be the headlining item for the event, and we'll also supposedly be getting the public release of OS X Yosemite. Both the iPads and Yosemite will reportedly be accompanied by iOS 8.1, the first major update to iOS 8. Other rumors also suggest we'll be seeing new Macs at the...

Apple says GTAT bankruptcy was a ‘surprising...

Apple has now officially commented on the startling announcement that sapphire supplier GTAT will file for bankruptcy. Like most observers, Apple was “surprised” by the move. Apple told the Wall Street Journal:

In its first comments since GT’s Chapter 11 filing Monday, Apple said, “We are focused on preserving jobs in Arizona following GT’s surprising decision and we will continue to work with state and local officials as we consider our next steps.”

Wall Street Journal sources indicate that GTAT was forced into financial distress because Apple withheld the final tranche payment of its contract, totally $139 million. Apparently, the sapphire supplier did not meet the agreed terms so Apple...

Apple didn't use GTAT's sapphire glass for the new iPhone models as had been expected, which drove the glass maker's stock down 13 percent.

The supposed dummy unit matches up nearly identically with previous “leaks.” The device apparently comes in at just 7 millimeters thick, the same thickness as the iPhone 6.

Previous speculation has suggested that Apple may be considering relocating the microphone, as the dummy does not sport a microphone opening on top...

Jumping the gun on teens and the Apple Watch

Recode:

“The concept of wearing a watch for teenagers is foreign — and I think that’s part of what is reflected in that response,” said Munster. “The second piece is, it’s still something that people need to hear more about, beyond what Apple has to say about it, before people get interested in it.”

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster responding to a survey of 7,200 teens, calling teen embrace of Apple Watch tepid. Seems to me, anticipating response to a product that has not yet hit people’s wrists is a fool’s errand.

The bad news is that there’s another chunk of malware on the OS X platform to worry about.

The good news is that Apple included a backdoor fix over the weekend to take care of it.

Per The Mac Observer, Apple pushed an update to its Xprotect malware list for the Mac that includes the Mac.BackDoor.iWorm malware over the weekend. Xprotect watches for telltale signatures from known malware threats and attempts to stop them from invading your computer.

The iWorm threat installs through a Trojan horse masquerading as an installer for other apps. Mac owners that have fallen victim to iWorm picked up the malware through installers for pirated apps such as Adobe Photoshop.

If you are editing some text in iOS and spot a word you meant to capitalize (e.g., May instead of may), the old approach was to press and hold, then slide the cursor to just after the letter to be capitalized, then hit delete and retype the letter.

Fitbit, makers of popular fitness tracking wearables and apps, has confirmed it currently has no plans to support Apple’s new iOS 8 Health app. After a bit of a delayed launch last month, a long list of developers have rushed to integrate support for HealthKit, Apple’s new frameworks that allow developers to share and tap into data from one central location on the user’s device: the new Health app in iOS 8. Fitbit, however, has confirmed in a few responses on its customer forums that it isn’t working on integration much to the frustration of its users that have been awaiting an update:

What we know (and suspect) is coming in iOS 8.1

Apple Pay is one of the biggest features expected to launch with iOS 8.1 later this month.

Apple

Last week, numerous publications (including Ars) reported seeing references to iOS 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3 in their site analytics pages. iOS versions 5, 6, and 7 only saw one major point update apiece during their respective lifespans, so evidence of three different updates being tested simultaneously just weeks after the release of iOS 8.0 came as a surprise.

It looks like we'll be seeing the first of those updates sooner rather than later. Today Apple pushed out the second beta build of iOS 8.1 in as many weeks to its registered developers, and the final version of the software is...

Yovo bets on security to stand out from the pack of...

There’s a new disappearing message app in an already crowded market, but this one isn’t from a Snapchat-like startup. Yovo has some of the same features—namely the self-destructing photos—but unlike its
rival, the new iOS app’s roots are in serious DRM tech.

Yovo is shorthand for “you only view once,” but the app is a bit more flexible than that. You can set a timer that lets your recipients see your message
for up to 24 hours. You might be wondering: What about screenshots? That’s where Yovo’s parent company, ContentGuard, has some experience. ContentGuard
spun off from the Palo Alto research center Xerox PARC, working on DRM tech to protect user-generated content. For Yovo, ContentGuard came up with a way to
scramble your photo when someone tries to take a screen capture.

Why Apple’s iPhone encryption is a godsend, even if...

Thoughtful editorial from Wired. The upshot:

However it got there, Apple has come to the right place. It’s a basic axiom of information security that “data at rest” should be encrypted. Apple should be lauded for reaching that state with the iPhone. Google should be praised for announcing it will follow suit in a future Android release.

Also worth reading, this essay from Salon, entitled America’s huge iPhone lie: Why Apple is being accused of coddling child molesters.

Tanks for everything: World of Tanks Blitz's...

When World of Tanks debuted as a PC game a few years back, it seemed like it would be the kind of ultra-niche hardcore simulation that appealed primarily to die-hards with specialized controllers—and loads of time to spend mastering its nuances. But there was an unexpected twist: It was free to download and play, which was still a relatively new concept, particularly in the hardcore PC space.

Instead of courting a small but vocal fan base, it exploded in popularity due to its accessible business model and game design, making it possible to play a few rounds and have fun without feeling overwhelmed or outgunned—or dig in and really savor the depth of its strategic action. Early this year, developer Wargaming reported having more than 75 million registered users on PC alone, with an Xbox 360 version launching in February to expand its reach further.

Just for fun: Show us your best QuickType poetry

Who knew predictive text could see into your soul? If the new QuickType keyboard had been around when I was in middle school, my output of moody, tortured, nonsensical poetry would have been…OK, only slighty greater than it already was. But with less forced iambic pentameter.

Yes, Apple’s new keyboard in iOS 8, aka QuickType, attempts to guess what you’re typing not just as you tap out letters, but even before. Depending on the context and the words you tend to use (and overuse), sometimes it’s uncannily good at guessing what you’re about to say next. Other times it’s just funny. And if you eschew typing altogether and just pick from the three suggested words to string together sentences—that came from inside the iPhone!—the results can be pretty darn great.

The reason Apple partnered with GT Advanced on the iPhone displays was related to the size of the screens. Because GT was the best equipped to manufacture a display the size of the new iPhone models. However, because the Apple Watch uses a smaller display, other...

Simon & Schuster released Walter Isaacson's new book The Innovators on Tuesday. This book builds on the research begun for his killer biography Steve Jobs, but takes a much broader look at the many innovator who took part in the creation of "tech" as we know it today. He begins with Ada Lovelace, Lord Byronâs daughter, who pioneered computer programming in the 1840s. Which, come on, is cool. The book also looks at folks such as Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, John von Neumann, J.C.R. Licklider, Doug Engelbart, Robert Noyce, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, Tim Berners-Lee, and Larry Page. From the publisher: "This is the story of how their minds worked and what made them so inventive. Itâs also a narrative of how their ability to collaborate and master the art of teamwork made them even more creative." You can buy it on iBooks for US$8.99. Amazon has the hard back for $21.81 and the Kindle version for $8.49.

AAA ranks Siri as extreme distraction for drivers

Even though Apple's Siri is meant to simplify smartphone commands and in some cases enable hands-free control, it's in fact a severe distraction for drivers, according to a study from the AAA's Foundation for Traffic Safety. The group studied 45 drivers, asking them to accomplish various tasks using native in-car voice systems as well as Siri. Real and simulated cars were used; for Siri, people were given an iPhone 5 with iOS 7, as well as a microphone. Siri users were asked to make phone calls, send and receive texts, update Facebook and Twitter, and check their calendar. Other voice systems...

GT Advanced's CEO under fire for stock trade...

The CEO of sapphire supplier GT Advanced Technologies, Tom Guitierrez, is facing scrutiny for a $160,000 sale of company stock he made on September 8th. The Wall Street Journal reports that the sale came just a day before Apple announced the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which some rumors had suggested would use sapphire screen covers. Instead the phones were revealed to be using a variant of Corning Gorilla Glass, and GT's share price fell from $17.38 to around the $11 mark. Yesterday the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, causing shares to plummet below $1. They have since reboun...

Study finds Siri causes high level of unsafe driver...

A new study from AAA on the potential safety risks of hands-free systems for vehicles warns Apple’s Siri presents a “relatively high” level of distraction. In its tests, AAA ranked use of Siri as a “category 4 level of mental distraction,” which puts it in last place compared to other hands-free voice controlled systems from the big car makers including Ford, Mercedes, Hyundai, Chevrolet, Chrysler, and Toyota. It was also the only voice controlled system that resulted in two crashes in the simulator study:

To understand the workload rating associated with interacting with Siri, it is first useful to consider what is not causing the effect. The high level of...

Sapphire company CEO sold $160,000 in stock days...

GT's stock rode high on the iPhone rumors for months, but it dropped when the new iPhones launched without sapphire and fell down a hole when it announced the bankruptcy filing.

GT Advanced Technologies, the company Apple currently relies on for sapphire in its iOS devices, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy yesterday. The filing came just a few weeks after Apple announced its new iPhones on September 10—both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were widely expected to use sapphire instead of glass to protect their screens from scratches. This didn't happen, though, and it sent GT's stock price sliding downward even before yesterday's bankruptcy filing pushed it off a cliff.

Now The Wall Street Journal reports that GT CEO Thomas Gutierrez has...

How-To Make iOS 8 and iPhone 6 Work With Google Voice

Many users of the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models are finding it impossible to re-link with Google Voice for voicemail. When entering in the classic **004*1[GV-Number]# sequence users are seeing a "Setting Registration Failed" message instead of the happy success note. Fear no longer. Marcel Brown sorted this out and you have two ways you can enable Google Voice on your new phone. First is to call AT&T and have them set up "conditional call forwarding" for you, or you can set up the 3 big use cases all by yourself with some slightly different commands. "234567890" in Marcel's examples would be replaced with your Google Voice number, including area code:

Call Forward if Unanswered: *61*1234567890#
Call Forward if Unreachable: *62*1234567890#
Call Forward if Busy: *67*1234567890#

Set all three of these and you're good to go. To check the status of these enter *#61#, *#62# and *#67# respectively. To deactivate, enter ##61#, ##62# and/or ##67#. Enjoy!...
