External Link: Apple Relents on Templated Apps and...

We reported previously that Apple had started banning apps built using templates or app generators — tools relied on by small businesses and organizations that couldn’t afford their own developers. After significant criticism, Apple has now revised its rules with a compromise: templated apps are kosher, as long as they are issued by the provider of the app’s content, rather than the company that makes the app generator. That will require such organizations to pay for the $99-per-year Apple Developer Program. Separately, Apple said it would start waiving the developer fee for nonprofits and government agencies in early 2018.

External Link: Yes, Apple Is Slowing Down Old...

Apple has confirmed a user belief that has long been brushed aside as a wacky conspiracy theory: it is deliberately slowing down older iPhones. But no, it’s not to drive upgrades — Apple’s explanation is that as an iPhone’s battery capacity degrades, iOS throttles the processor speed to extend battery life. The company said that it introduced this feature in 2016 for the iPhone 6, 6s, and SE, and added it to the iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2. Reasonable enough, but why was Apple so secretive about a feature that would help older iPhones retain their utility longer, even if it was at the cost of some performance? And shouldn’t the user get to decide whether to prioritize performance or battery life?

Apple sued over the slow-down of older iPhones (and...

Whether or not you buy Apple's response that it doesn’t slow down older iPhone models to promote sales, but that the slowdown is actually due to worn batteries, the company’s lack of up-front transparency has come back to bit ‘em in the butt.

A new class action suit filed by L.A.’s Stefan Bogdanovich claims Apple's decision to slow the operation of older phones to save battery life was never requested or agreed upon — and lowers the value of their phones. He also doesn’t buy the tech giant’s explanation and says the slow-down is just a ploy to to get folks to upgrade.

Apple could have avoided “battery-gate” in a variety of ways. Rather than secretly hamstring the iPhone's CPU, it could have educated users about the limitations of lithium-ion batteries instead of burying the info in a user manual, Kyle Wiens, CEO of iFixit tells...

One of my-all time favorite additions to the iPhone’s camera app is Live Photos, the feature that saves a short, 3 second video clip with each photo you take. Playing back Live Photos from an event has always been cumbersome though, requiring you to swipe through each photo and play each clip separately. Now, a new app aims to solve that problem by instantly turning groups of your Live Photos into shareable video clips.

Facebook signs licensing deal with Universal Music

Facebook Inc and Universal Music Group on Thursday announced a global agreement that will enable users to upload videos featuring music from Universal’s library across the social media network as well as Instagram and Oculus.

Facebook has done a great job in staying ahead of the curve in recent years, offering its users enough to stay on the site. There must be a demand for this among its users, but I’m not sure how much.

Apple updates App Store guidelines for “loot boxes”

Loot boxes made big headlines in 2017 when EA released Star Wars Battlefront II and received a huge amount of backlash for including a very robust loot box system that made player progression painfully slow for gamers who didn’t spend money. There was a big uproar in the gaming community, EA’s stocks took a hit, and an international conversation started about the morality and implications of loot boxes in games.

I think it’s good that Apple is trying to protect its customers, or at least make the companies disclose the odds.

Rumor: Apple is working on an Apple Watch with a...

Apple is working on an Apple Watch with an EKG heart monitor, to help detect arrhythmia and stroke risks, reports Bloomberg.

The tech giant is reportedly testing a watch that requires users to squeeze its frame with two fingers from the hand that’s not wearing the device. It then passes an imperceptible current across the person’s chest to track electrical signals in the heart and detect any abnormalities like irregular heart rates. Such conditions can increase the risk of strokes and heart failure and develop in about one-quarter of people over 40, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The current Apple Watch has a more basic heart rate monitor, but the company is increasingly trying to use advanced sensors to predict future afflictions, rather than simply collect historical data about the...

Apple Inc. is developing an advanced heart-monitoring feature for future versions of its smartwatch, part of a broader push by the company to turn what was once a luxury fashion accessory into a serious medical device, according to people familiar with the plan.

This is one of those rumors that I would put in the “makes sense” category. Apple has redefined how we track health on our watches in the last few years. If they are able to add a reliable EKG to the watch, it would seem to fit into the company’s larger plan of enabling its users to track health and fitness.

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that Apple is working on large-capacity battery technology for its smartphones.

The reason? New 3D sensing and augmented reality functions expected to come to the iPhone's rear camera in 2019 will require more power consumption. Kuo predicts that Apple's key technologies will allow the company to create the required space for even larger batteries. And he thinks that the tech giant will instead use rigid-flex printed circuit board (RFPCB) batteries instead of flexible printed circuit board (FPCB) technology, as some expect.

Let the Apple Car rumors recommence. Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170353430) for an “autonomous navigation system,” which will doubtless review rumors of an Apple-branded vehicle (something I’m dubious about; more on that in a moment).

Apple’s patent is for an system which enables autonomous navigation of a vehicle along a driving route based on monitoring in the vehicle. The vehicle is manually navigated along the route to develop a “characterization” of the route. 

The characterization is progressively updated with repeated manual navigations along the route, and autonomous navigation of the route is enabled when a confidence indicator of the characterization meets a threshold indication. Characterizations can be updated in response to the vehicle encountering changes in the route and can include a set of driving rules associated with the route, where the driving rules are developed based on monitoring the navigation of one or more vehicles of the route....

Apple amends its App Store guidelines

Apple is amending the App Store guideline that banned apps created using templates and other app generation services. When the company revised its policies earlier this year, the move was meant to reduce the number of low-quality apps and spam.

Apple in 2017: Grading my predictions

January is the month for optimism, looking forward, and dreaming about what the new year might bring. But in the cold, dim light of December, it’s time to admit that the hourglass has just about run out on our hopes and dreams for the current year.

Sony’s HT-XT2 2.1 is a great choice for those who...

If you want better audio than most HDTVs speakers, and don’t have the room for a surround sound system, check out the Sony HT-XT2 2.1 Channel Sound system. It works great with the Sony XBR-X900E, which is the TV I recommend for owners of the Apple TV 4K. 

It doesn’t have the encompassing experience of a true surround sound system, but the HT-XT1 offers very good performance for both movies and music. Music and sound effects are especially clear and sharp, though dialog comes across slightly thin (though fiddling with the sound stand’s settings helps with this).

The HT-XT1’s sleek design allows you to place your TV atop it (as long as it doesn’t weigh more than 66 pounds), which is another space saving feature. And it doesn’t block your TV's remote control sensor, a problem I’ve experienced with some sound bars.

How to create an external Mac startup disk for macOS...

If you install the Mac operating system on an external hard drive, thumb drive, or other storage device, your Mac can start up from that device instead of your built-in startup disk. First, make sure that your storage device is properly formatted.

For best results, your external hard drive, thumb drive, SDHC or SDXC card, or other storage device should be formatted as Mac OS Extended, not FAT, ExFAT, or NTFS. And to function as a startup disk, it needs to be using a GUID partition map. Here's how to check:

Connect your external storage device to your Mac.

Choose Apple menu () > About This Mac, then click the System Report button. Select Storage from the sidebar, then select your storage device from the list of volumes. Make sure that the Partition Map Type shown for your storage device is GPT (GUID Partition Table). If your storage device isn't using a GUID partition map, you can create one with Disk Utility.

Congress finally passed the Republican tax overhaul, which would make it affordable for Apple to repatriate the $252.3B cash it currently holds overseas. Apple would be able to take advantage of a one-time tax break, paying just 15.5% tax on the cash, rather than the 35% it would have had to pay previously.

If Apple chose to bring all of the cash back to the US, it would pay $39.1B in tax. And this would be practical because the company has already set aside $36.3B – almost the entire amount – for exactly that eventuality. But there’s one catch …

Apple admits to throttling iOS performance on older...

Well, this isn’t good.

Following years of suspicion from critics, Apple may have admitted to secretly stifling the performance of older iPhones.

After years of anecdotal evidence that the company was purposely slowing performance to compel users to upgrade to the latest iPhone model, Apple admitted to the practice on Wednesday, offering the following comments as to the practice:

“Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6S and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these...

A new Apple project could allow thousands of iOS applications to run under macOS.

Apple is reportedly working to overcome challenges in getting software developers to embrace the Mac App Store. With the expected upcoming changes, developers will be able to create a single application that can work with either a touchscreen, a mouse, or a trackpad.

The project, reportedly codenamed “Marzipan”, will allow macOS and iOS applications to essentially blur together with the hope that applications on the Mac will be updated more frequently and be of higher quality than their current state. A Bloomberg report cited the official Twitter app, which is regularly updated for iPhone and iPad, but less frequently so for Mac.

The effort could take place around the next Worldwide Developers Conference in June of 2018. If Apple sticks to its usual release pattern, then iOS 12 and macOS 10.14 would be announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, before launching to...

Apple has shared that it decreases iPhone performance to guard against less predictable, older batteries from early shutdowns. However, if you plan on keeping your iPhone for a while longer or want to hand it down, a $25-$79 battery investment may be worth it.

Apple Addresses Why Some iPhones With Older...

Matthew Panzarino, writing for TechCrunch:

Here’s a statement that Apple provided when I inquired about the
power profile that people were seeing when testing iPhones with
older batteries:

“Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which
includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their
devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying
peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery
charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device
unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone
SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to
prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these

Apple Confirms iPhone With Older Batteries Will Take...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: Reddit users have noticed that Apple appears to be slowing down old iPhones that have low-capacity batteries. While many iPhone users have experienced perceived slowdowns due to iOS updates over the years, it appears that there's now proof Apple is throttling processor speeds when a battery capacity deteriorates over time. Geekbench developer John Poole has mapped out performance for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 over time, and has come to the conclusion that Apple's iOS 10.2.1 and 11.2.0 updates introduce this throttling for different devices. iOS 10.2.1 is particularly relevant, as this update was designed to reduce random shutdown issues for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S. Apple's fix appears to be throttling the CPU to prevent the phone from randomly shutting down. Geekbench reports that iOS 11.2.0 introduces similar throttling for low iPhone 7 low-capacity batteries.

When reached for comment, Apple basically confirmed the...

Apple: older iPhones slow down due to aging batteries

Apple has responded to claims that it purposefully slows down older iPhone models to promote sales. The company says that the slowdown is actually due to worn batteries, which are more likely to exist in older phones. In a statement to AppleInsider, the company said:

Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

AWT TV Episode 32: December 19, 2017

Welcome to AWT TV, a weekly show featuring Steve Sande, Dennis Sellers and Marty Edwards of Apple World Today. Each week we'll discuss what's happened in the world of Apple, talk about new apps and accessories, maybe even have a demonstration or two of the latest software.

It's the last AWT TV Show of 2017, with Steve and Marty discussing what was naughty this year and what was nice. Rather than give you a teaser about what we chatted about, we suggest just watching the show.

Steve does give a short intro to AirTable, a free (for personal use) relational database application for web, Mac, Windows, iOS and Android. It's powerful enough that there are big companies using it, but easy enough for anybody to learn and master.

Our next show -- Episode 33 -- will be on January 2, 2017. See you then. Have a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New...

Apple TV 4K units sold out at Amazon

Yikes! Not only are Apple’s AirPods again in short supply, but, as noted by AppleInsider, the Apple TV 4K has already sold out at Amazon only hours after it began selling the set-top box.

Amazon began selling the Apple TV again on Wednesday after stopping sales of the set-top box two years ago. And the recently free Amazon Prime Video app for the Apple TV had the most downloads over seven days of any app in the history of the tvOS App Store.

However, don't worry. You can still buy the 32GB and 64GB Apple TV 4K models at Apple’s online store, and they’ll arrive in 1-2...

Rumor (and my opinion): ‘Universal apps’ coming for...

Apple plans to allow developers to release universal apps that work across the macOS and iOS as early as next year as part of the company’s “Marzipan” project, according to Bloomberg News. The apps will work with a touchscreen or mouse and trackpad depending on whether it’s running on the iPhone and iPad operating system or on a Mac, the article adds, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter.”

Currently, of course, developers have to develop apps separately the iOS or the macOS. Unifying the apps could help the iOS and macOS platforms “evolve and grow as one, and not one at the expense of the other,” Steven Troughton-Smith, an app developer, tells Bloomberg News. “This would be the biggest change to Apple’s software platform since iOS was introduced.”

However, Bloomberg News says the plans...

Apple Plans Combined iPhone, iPad and Mac Apps To...

An anonymous reader shares a Bloomberg report: Apple's iPhone and iPad introduced a novel way of interacting with computers: via easy-to-use applications, accessible in the highly curated App Store. The same approach hasn't worked nearly as well on Apple's desktops and laptops. The Mac App Store is a ghost town of limited selection and rarely updated programs. Now Apple plans to change that by giving people a way to use a single set of apps that work equally well across its family of devices: iPhones, iPads and Macs. Starting as early as next year, software developers will be able to design a single application that works with a touchscreen or mouse and trackpad depending on whether it's running on the iPhone and iPad operating system or on Mac hardware, according to people familiar with the matter. Developers currently must design two different apps -- one for iOS, the operating system of Apple's mobile devices, and one for macOS, the system that runs Macs. With a single app for...

Apple will add new developer tools that will enable developers to design and engineer a single application that runs on iPhone, iPad, and Mac devices, according to a report from Bloomberg. This will be a huge step for the Mac app ecosystem especially, as it should make it easier for third-party developers to maintain one app that runs on iOS and Macs.

The apps would be designed in such a way that they can work with a touchscreen, mouse, and trackpad depending on which platform the app is running on. The new ability is scheduled to launch with iOS 12 and macOS 10.14 next year, but the timeline could change.

Apple Pay may debut soon in Poland

Several banks on the Polish market have been technically prepared to introduce Apple Pay for a long time now. Now the mobile payment service may be coming to the country soon, according to a Cashless article.

The banks — including Alior, BZ WBK and mBank — have implemented Mastercard or Visa's tokenization solutions. It's the technology used by Apple Pay.

“Now the only thing standing in the way of Apple Pay in Poland is establishing the financial conditions, that is the commission that banks would have to pay to Apple for mobile transactions performed by the banks’ customers using iPhones,” says Cashless.

Apple Pay is currently available in 20 countries: Australia, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, the UK,...

Google Maps's Moat: How Far Ahead of Apple Maps...

An anonymous reader shares a report: Over the past year, we've been comparing Google Maps and Apple Maps in New York, San Francisco, and London -- but some of the biggest differences are outside of large cities. That's a comprehensive comparison. Google Maps, unlike Apple Maps, doesn't stop at outlining the routes. It offers contextual details such as depiction of buildings and other structures and vegetation. It has captured everything -- from dish antennae on top of buildings to golf courses. Furthermore, Google Maps also shows name of the neighbourhood, and has more distinguishable icons and colors. You can glance at a portion of the map on Google Maps and get a good picture of what's in that place. Apple Maps, on the other hand, looks empty. Like an unfurnished house.
