Parallels has unveiled Parallels Mac Management 5.0 for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), which extends Microsoft SCCM functionality, offering solution to manage and control both PC and Mac computers.

How to control your home with HomeKit and iOS 10...

One of the big changes in iOS 10 was the addition of two tabs to Control Center -- one for controlling music playback and one for controlling your HomeKit accessories. While the HomeKit app is best for setting up HomeKit devices like light switches, thermostats, door locks and so on, once they're set up you can make controlling those devices just a few swipes and taps away by using Control Center.

Once your HomeKit devices, houses, rooms and scenes have been set up in the Home app, just swipe up from the bottom of your device screen to open Control Center, then swipe left twice. As you can see from the screenshot at right, that means that lights can be turned on and off with a tap, sensors will display temperature and humidity, and so on. This can also be useful if you're away from home and want to either change settings or make sure that lights are on and doors are locked.

If you have Scenes set up -- they're groupings of devices and what state they should be in (on...

Pinterest adds tips to pins so your DIY projects won...

Pinterest is full of inspiration, from recipes to furniture hacks to costume ideas. But while some things look good in photos, they don’t always turn out successfully in real life. There are a slew of blogs devoted to documenting disastrous Pinterest projects (most of which are incredibly hilarious). But you might see fewer fails thanks to Pinterest’s new pin tips feature.

Pinterest is rolling out an update to its iOS app on Thursday that lets you see which of your fellow pinners have tried a project. More importantly, it lets anyone add feedback, photos, and tips on how to pull off a Pinterest experiment so it doesn’t go horrible awry.

Rumor: Apple’s AirPods to be available next week

First, Apple’s AirPods were supposed to ship in “late October.” Then they were moved to later in the year. Then a report from the Economic Daily News (via Digitimes) says that they won’t begin shipping until January 2017. 

Then — pay attention — a report from AppleInsider said that they will indeed ship before year’s end and calls the supply chain report “bogus.” Now an employee at Apple reseller Conrad has reportedly told a customer it will receive AirPods stock on Nov. 17, and make them available to purchase by Nov. 18-19. That’s from a loosely translated quote from German blog apfelpage.de as noted by...

Stay warm, look cool in your Apple World Today logo...

Remember our sweatshirts and other logo gear from last fall? Some of the products reached their production goal, others didn't. But the most popular item is back again for the next week -- the AWT Logo Sweatshirt (US$24.99 + shipping).

Teespring makes these for us, and they use top-quality shirts. This is a Gildan 8 ounce heavy blend hoodie (complete with hand warmer pocket!) in a variety of colors and sizes from Small to 5XL. I wear mine whenever the temperature drops and I want warmth and style!

The window for ordering is only open for another week, so if you want one of these, act fast! And don't forget, we have plenty of other styles to choose from; we just need to meet a minimum order and then the shirts ship. For the Logo Sweatshirt, that minimum order has been reached so you'll see it soon!

Apple wins another AR head-mounted display patent,...

Apple has been granted yet another patent (number 201603277799) for an augmented reality (AR) display that could be used with an iPhone. The patent is for a “head-mounted display apparatus for retaining a portable electronic device with display.” Similar to patents 8,957,835 and 9,482,869, it’s for VR goggles that would connect to the smartphone (or perhaps an iPod touch) to a GoPro-ish head mount for viewing media on a private display.

Head-mounted display systems and methods of operation that allow users to couple and decouple a portable electronic device (think iPhone) with a separate head-mounted device are disclosed. The iDevice could be physically coupled to the head-mounted device so that it can be worn on the user's head. 

The iPhone may be operatively coupled to the head-mounted device such that the portable electronic device and head mounted device can communicate and operate with one another. Each device may be allowed to extend its...

I’ve said more than once that I’m relaxed about Apple’s decision to fit only USB-C ports in the new MacBook Pro. I’d rather have to pay for two adapters and one cable now than be stuck with outdated ports for most of the 4-5 years I expect to keep the machine.

But I discovered that Apple did have one more hidden extra cost in store for 2016 MacBook Pro buyers: the $69 (13-inch model) or $79 (15-inch model) power adapter the company sells as an accessory doesn’t include the USB-C cable you need to actually, you know, use it …

∞ Emergency calling feature in iOS beta

If you press your iPhone’s power button 5 times in rapid succession (don’t try it until you finish reading this post), your iPhone will place an emergency call, presumably to 911 in the US.

Once you start the process, you’ll hear a loud alert siren and see a countdown appear, giving you an opportunity to cancel the call. To cancel the call, you’ll need to press the Stop button, then press the Stop Calling button that appears.

Here’s what this looks like on my phone:

Not sure how long this feature has been in place, but I thought it was worth sharing.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has sent out a company-wide memo — obtained by BuzzFeed News — addressing employee concerns about the recent, divisive U.S. Presidential race. It reads:

“I’ve heard from many of you today about the presidential election. In a political contest where the candidates were so different and each received a similar number of popular votes, it’s inevitable that the aftermath leaves many of you with strong feelings.

‘We have a very diverse team of employees, including supporters of each of the candidates. Regardless of which candidate each of us supported as individuals, the only way to move forward is to move forward together.

Jason Snell: Buttons and keys, your days are numbered

Jason Snell, writing for Macworld:

I can’t imagine a future Mac laptop with an iPad where the keyboard should be, but with a few additional bits of technology, it seems a lot less wild an idea.

As someone who enjoys typing on a physical keyboard, I’m vaguely nauseated by the idea of a keyboard that’s just a sheet of glass–but the travel on the MacBook Pro keyboard is so small already, would it be that different to remove it altogether?

And:

You can’t operate a touch-screen keyboard by feel, because the act of feeling it causes it to react.

Unless you built in pressure sensitivity that would allow that surface to react differently to hard typing taps.

By a long, long shot, I prefer a physical keyboard to one presented on a sheet of glass. As Jason says, it’s all about feel. Is it possible to use taptic feedback to improve a touch keyboard to the point where it approaches the feel of a physical keyboard?

Interesting read.

Team,

I’ve heard from many of you today about the presidential election. In a political contest where the candidates were so different and each received a similar number of popular votes, it’s inevitable that the aftermath leaves many of you with strong feelings.

Apple releases updated build of iOS 10.1.1

Apple on Wednesday issued a new build of iOS 10.1.1, the current version of the iOS 10 operating system. The update is minor enough that it did not warrant a full 10.x.x number change, but it does include an updated build number.

The new build has been labeled “14B150”, whereas the initial iOS 10.1.1 build was labeled “14B100”.

This new build is only available as a download from Apple’s servers and cannot be obtained over-the-air at this time for those who have already installed the first version of iOS 10.1.1. The new version of iOS 10.1.1 will likely be provided to those who have yet to install iOS 10.1.1, as it otherwise requires an iTunes connection to download and install.

As present, there is no information listed in the changes as to what bug fixes or changes the update...

If nothing else, Apple Pay is gaining traction.

Just over a month after launching Apple Pay on the web to bring the payments service to website checkouts via its Safari web browser, new data shows Apple has already made it into the top five payment technologies online.

Analystics firm SimilarTech’s platform tracks over 30 billion web pages each month with Apple Pay coming in as the fifth most popular payment platform used by the top 10,000 websites. It maintains the fifth position among the top 100k websites, too.

Apple Pay is now available on 0.25 percent of the top 10,000 sites.

That puts it at almost 10% of leader PayPal which has 2.36% of the top websites (although PayPal’s subscribe button is also #2 and adds an additional 0.98%)....

iOS WebView Bug Can Force iPhones To Make Calls...

An anonymous reader writes: "A bug in the iOS WebView component allows an attacker to force someone's iPhone to dial any number, while also locking the user's interface for a few moments, preventing him to cancel the outgoing call," reports BleepingComputer. "The bug was at the heart of the recent accidental DDoS of 911 call centers across the U.S." At the heart of the issue is a Safari bug reported in 2008, which was fixed in iOS 3.0. The same bug also exists in the WebView component used by app makers to show web pages inside other apps. The researcher that found the bug writes in a blog post: "If you think automatically dialing a phone number after clicking a link in an app is not a big issue think again. DoSing 911 is pretty terrible but there are other examples such as expensive 900 numbers where the attacker can actually make money. A stalker can make his victim dial his phone number so he gets his victim's number. Altogether things you don't want to happen. [...] Apple...

Rain Design’s mStand series was recently expanded to include stands for the iPad. They’re handy for elevating and supporting the Apple tablet and are especially convenient if you use Duet Display software to use an iPad as a secondary display with your Mac.

They are available in mStand tablet, mStand tablet plus and mStand tablet pro models. I use the latter ($69.90) with my 12.9-inch iPad Pro. As mentioned, I often use the stand and tablet in conjunction with my Mac as a secondary display. Even if you don’t, the mStand props up the tablet to make it easy to touch, swipe, and type (if you’re using the virtual keyboard, not an Apple Smart Keyboard). It’s also convenient for FaceTime chats or for use as a drawing stand with the Apple Pencil.

How to download your music to your Mac from iCloud

Call me old school, but I don’t trust all my digital data to reside solely in “the cloud” (that would be iCloud for we Apple fans). That’s why I use iTunes Match and iCloud, yet also have my music library on an external hard drive connected to my iMac.

iTunes Match is a service that stores all your music in iCloud—even songs imported from CDs or not purchased in the iTunes Store—and makes it available on up to 10 of your devices and computers. With iTunes Match — which costs US$25 annually— you have access to your complete iTunes music library at any time. If you have this service, you can download all your music to your Mac with these steps.

  • If you have more than one Mac, pick the one you wish to store your music library on.

As announced on Monday, ROME: Total War is now available as an iPad game, priced at $9.99 in the App Store. For those unfamiliar with the franchise, ROME: Total War is considered by critics as one of the best PC strategy games. The makers of the iPad version have ported the entire game, ‘without compromise’, to the tablet.

In the game, players move from a strategic 2D map to a 3D battlefield environment. You direct troops like calvary, infantry and artillery to overcome the opponent – often recreating real historic battles. The scale of the game is massive, with thousands of onscreen units fighting simultaneously. I played the game ahead of its official release and was quite impressed …

HDMI-CEC: The secret to streaming-remote simplicity

When I cut the cable TV cord nearly eight years ago, juggling multiple remote controls was a necessity. At minimum, you needed one for your television and another for your game console or streaming box. I used a third remote for a home theater PC, so I could access video websites that weren’t yet available as streaming-TV apps.

But over the past couple years, the need for multiple remotes has been slipping away, thanks to a decade-old HDMI feature called Consumer Electronics Control (HDMI-CEC). With this feature, streaming boxes such as Apple TV and Roku can control your television’s power, volume, and input, making additional remotes unnecessary.

Silicon Valley Investors Call For California To...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Guardian: As Donald Trump's shock election victory reverberated around Silicon Valley late on Tuesday night, some high-profile technologists were already calling for California to secede from the United States. The broader west coast is a stronghold for the Democrats, and significantly more politically progressive and racially diverse than large swathes of central U.S. California is also the biggest economy in the U.S. and the sixth largest in the world with a gross state product of $2.496 trillion for 2015, according to the IMF. The campaign for independence -- variously dubbed Calexit, Califrexit and Caleavefornia -- has been regarded as a fringe movement. But support was revitalized by influential Uber investor and Hyperloop co-founder Shervin Pishevar, in a series of tweets announcing his plans to fund a "legitimate campaign for California to become its own nation" -- posted even before the full results were in.

New submitter TheFakeTimCook writes: An article on MacRumors has revealed that Apple's latest MacBook Pro has already outsold all competing laptops this year, according to new data shared by research firm Slice Intelligence: "Slice Intelligence says the new MacBook Pro accumulated more revenue from online orders during its first five days of availability than the Microsoft Surface Book, ASUS Chromebook Flip, Dell Inspiron 2-in-1, and Lenovo Yoga 900, based on e-receipt data from 12,979 online shoppers in the United States. The new MacBook Pro generated over seven times the revenue that the 12-inch MacBook did over its first five days of availability, according to Slice Intelligence. If accurate, that means it took the new MacBook Pro just five days to accumulate 78% of all the revenue generated by the 12-inch MacBook since its April 2015 launch. The data follows Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller's claim the new MacBook Pro had received more online orders than any previous MacBook...

The Google Photos tie-in means you can import and export photos from Google’s app to Photoshop Express for quick editing and sharing. Photoshop Express already supports Adobe’s Creative Cloud, Dropbox, Facebook, and the iOS Camera Roll, so Google Photos is a welcome addition.

Now you can make collages, a popular feature in many photo-editing apps, in Photoshop Express. The new intelligent layout tool populate your images in a carousel of collage options in one tap so you can see what they’ll look like in a variety of formats. A style transfer automation tool takes the time out of editing your collage photos, although you can still manually edit each image in the collage by tapping and adjusting it.

Comment: There’s no clear winner in the current web...

I have a pretty clear idea about what I want my modern TV experience to look like: access to paid video apps for on demand content, a primary app for streaming live TV, and access to this on all my devices at home and mobile.

You can get pretty close to this experience on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac today, and there are services coming soon that will add to the competition, but there’s no clear winner in the web TV war yet…

Satechi is well-known for producing Mac-centric hardware, so it’s no surprise that the company has made several USB-C accessories, including a handy multiport adapter. This particular adapter, which is similar in stature to a pack of chewing gum, features two USB-A ports, HDMI, and a USB-C pass-through for charging. Should new MacBook Pro owners consider this little accessory? more…

The LG UltraFine 5K Display will go on sale in the U...

The LG UltraFine 5K Display, which Apple touts as the high-end external display to use with the new MacBook Pros, is “currently unavailable” for order at Apple’s online store. However, Jen Langione, a senior account exec at LG, tells Apple World Today, that it will go on sale in early December at Apple Stores in the United States.

It will cost $974 through the end of the year — and $1,299 afterwards. The LG UltraFine 5K Display — which is 18.3 inches high, 24.6 inches wide, 9.4 inches deep, and weighs 18.7 pounds — boasts a 27.inch, 5120-by-2880 resolution, 14.7 million pixels, P3 wide color gamut, and 500 cd/m² of brightness. 

A single Thunderbolt 3 cable (included) provides up to 85W of charging power to your MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports. And three downstream USB-C ports (5 Gbps) offer additional connectivity and power to compatible devices and accessories....

The iPhone 7/7 Plus are boosting iOS’s market share...

The latest smartphone OS sales data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech shows 5.2% percentage point U.S. market share increase for iOS during the third quarter of 2016 to 34.2%. Both iOS and Android made gains across most of the EU5 countries: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom). 

However, Android posted a 3.3 percentage point decline in the US from 66.7% to 63.4%, while iOS share fell in Germany from 17.5% to 15% and in Urban China from 18.7% to 14.2%.

“In the US, the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models made an immediate impact, becoming the best-selling smartphones in the month of September at 17.1%,” sats Lauren Guenveur, Consumer Insight Director for Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. “Strong sales of the iPhone 7 and the lower-priced iPhone 6s, the second best-selling device in the US in September, contributed to an overall growth of iOS to 34.2% in the third quarter of 2016.

SwitchEasy’s GLASS is especially designed for the...

SwitchEasy’s GLASS is a new protective case designed specifically for the jet black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus. Many metal cases on the market require screws to be disassembled. However, GLASS’s patented lock-release mechanism lets you take the phone out of the case with the slide of the button.

With a 7H hardness rating, GLASS protects the iPhone 7/7 Plus from nicks and scratches. It has an optical transparency rating of 90%, so the good looks of the Apple smartphone are still visible when using the case.

SwitchEasy designed a 1mm gap between the phone and the back of the GLASS case, allowing less than 13% of iPhone’s surface to come in contact with the case. It has a rigid case structure, composed of aluminum and glass.

With GLASS, SwitchEasy has introduced Pass-Through Nubs, a new way to enable a wireless signal to pass through metal casing. GLASS is available...

Apple Pay on the web is the fifth most popular...

Just over a month after launching Apple Pay on the web, new data from SimilarTech — as noted by 9to5Mac — shows Apple has already made it into the top five payment technologies online. 

SimilarTech is a website profiler, lead generation, competitive analysis and business intelligence tool providing technology adoption and usage analytics for the Internet. By adding web payment support, Mac users will be able to pay online in Safari using a “Pay with Apple Pay” button, and authenticate their purchase using Touch ID on their phone or watch. 

Previously, Apple Pay could only be used via some iOS apps or in a few selected retail stores. Also, iOS 10 added the option to use Apple Pay within Safari. So, when you check out online with Apple Pay, you'll touch your finger on the home button to complete the transaction.

The new MacBook Pro’s sales are through the roof

The new MacBook Pro may be controversial (and that’s an understatement), but Slice Intelligence reports that in the first five days of availability online, the latest model generated over seven times the revenue that the 12-inch MacBook did during its April 2015 launch. 

The new model’s sales already equal 78% of all the revenue generated by the 12-inch MacBook since it became available, and has accumulated more revenue than any other laptop this year., according to the research group, which has a panel of over 4.4 million online shoppers.

The new MacBook Pro has already outsold combined sales of the Dell XPS 13 and 15, which have been on sale for more than 10 months. It has also sold almost four times as many units as Microsoft’s Surface Book.

Up to four million Australians will soon be able to use Apple Pay following a deal Cuscal has made with Apple, reports news.com.au. Cuscal is an independent provider of payment solutions including card and acquiring products, mobile payments, fraud prevention, EFT switching and direct entry.

While Australia’s biggest banks continue to fight it out with Apple in an Australian Competition and Consumer Commission inquiry, more than 30 credit unions and small banks today will announce that their customers will be able to use Apple Pay. Cuscal managing director Craig Kennedy, in announcing the deal, called on the big banks and Apple to resolve their dispute for the good of consumers.

In July, Australia’s three largest banks (including the top lender, National Australia Bank), lodged a joint application with anti-trust regulators seeking approval to collectively negotiate with Apple to install their own electronic payments...

Those prices are $100 to $120 less than brand new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus devices, which are priced at $549 and $649 for 32GB of storage space. All refurbished iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models are unlocked and SIM-free, meaning they are compatible with all U.S. carriers.

Apple Now Sells Refurbished iPhones

In the past, Apple has only sold refurbished Macs, iPads and various niche devices on its refurb store. Now the company is officially selling refurbished iPhones, offering the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in its refurb store. 9to5Mac reports: Apple has sort of sold refurbished iPhones before, but those sales were relegated to an eBay store front and never fully acknowledged by the company. This is the first time that the company has offered iPhones on its official refurb store online. Customers will find the iPhone 6s in 16 GB storage varieties for $449.00. The larger iPhone 6s Plus is being offered in two storage varieties: 16Gb and 64GB for $529 and $589, respectively. It seems that all colors are currently available, which includes Silver, Space Gray, Gold, and Rose Gold. In the end, users can expect to save up to 15% ($110) by going the refurbished route, and remember that these devices come with a full 1-year factory warranty, which makes refurb units a great idea for budget-...

Good news for Apple's iBookstore: ebook market...

Here's some good news for Apple's iBookstore: the ebook market will more than double by 2020, according to Strategy Analytics. Increasing e-reading device penetration, more readily available content, new business models, and adoption in China will see the market's revenue top $16 billion in the next eight years, the research group adds.

"A clear trend in recent years has been the shift of e-reading from desktop computers to mobile, in particular to reading on smartphones and tablets.  At the same time, more readers are choosing multi-purpose tablets over dedicated e-readers as their primary ebook reading device," says David MacQueen, executive director, Apps and Media, Strategy Analytics.  

All in all, the research group expects ebook reading penetration to increase from less than 10% of the total population in 2013 to close to 25% in 2020. China, the biggest smartphone market in the world, has just begun...

CRU-DataPort eRazer Ultra useful for erasing hard...

By Aaron Lee

If you need to completely erase data from a hard drive, you need to check out the Drive eRazer Ultra from CRU-DataPort. Let me rephrase that: it’s a great device if you regularly have to erase data. It’s overkill for those who only do this occasionally — say, such as when they’re selling a Mac.

The eraser Ultra is a US$249. standalone hardware device that erases all data from 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch IDE/PATA and SATA hard drives faster and more securely than software solutions. Deleting a file or reformatting a drive won't permanently remove important information including credit card numbers, corporate and medical records, financial data, passwords or photos. Critical data remains accessible unless a proper tool is used to erase the hard drive entirely -- and you'll want to erase all that data before...

For most people, an iPhone is all the camera you’ll need—it’s in your pocket wherever you roam, ready to capture (or ruin, depending on who you talk to) the special moments of your life. And with the announcement of every new iPhone, its photographic credentials creep a little closer to rendering a lot of compact cameras obsolete.

However, not everyone is content with the photos their smartphone is capable of grabbing, with their wee-image sensors and software trickery. I’m one of them. As much as I rely on my iPhone SE for photos while I blunder through my daily life, I prefer to use Sony’s RX100 Mark III when I need to take my photos to a higher level—like when I’m doing product shots, a review, or I want to capture a spectacular view while I’m on the road. It offers me the opportunity to take more-detailed, life-like photos in a larger, more edit-friendly file...
