Despite the delay in new Mac Pro models arriving on the market, Apple is still aiming to target professional users looking for new Macs, and has revealed plans to release new iMacs this year with new configuration options that could be attractive to prosumer and creative users.

New iMacs likely to have Magic Keyboards with Touch...

Now that Apple has confirmed to Daring Fireball that new iMacs are coming this year, recent patent applications show that we can probably expect a Magic Keyboard with a Touch Bar on such all-in-ones — or at least offered as an option. 

Patents 20170090596, 20170090597 and 20170090654 are for a “keyboard with adaptive input row.” Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “The adaptive input row may be positioned within an opening of a device and include a cover for receiving a touch and a display that is configured to present an adaptable set of indicia. The adaptive input row may also include one or more sensors for detecting the location of a touch and/or the magnitude of a force of the touch. The adaptive input row may be positioned adjacent or proximate to a keyboard of the electronic device.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes that...

Daring Fireball: Apple has new Mac Pros, iMacs in...

Whoo hoo! Apple has told John Gruber at Daring Fireball that they're working on a “completely rethought” Mac Pro, with a modular design that can accommodate high-end CPUs and big GPUs, and which should make it easier for Apple to update with new components on a regular basis. 

The Mac Pro hasn’t been upgraded since its 2013 debut, though the price has remained the same. The Cupertino, California-based company is also working on Apple-branded pro displays to go with them. Unfortunately, Gruber says, the goodies won’t go on sale this year. However, Apple is releasing speed-bump updates to the existing “trash can” Mac Pros. The $2999 model goes from 4 Xeon CPU cores to 6, and from dual AMD G300 GPUs to dual G500 GPUs. The $3999 model goes from 6 CPU cores to 8, and from dual D500 GPUs to dual D800 GPUs. Nothing else is changing, including the ports.

What’s more, Apple told Gruber that Apple has “great” new...

Patent trollin’: Uniloc sues Apple for — what else...

Another day, another lawsuit. AppleInsider reports that Uniloc, a “patent troll,” has filed suit against Apple claiming infringement of three patents related to certain Maps features, user authentication via Apple ID and UDIDs, and remote iOS updates. 

Filed with the patent holder friendly Eastern Texas District Court, Uniloc's lawsuit alleges infringement of three owned patents relating to various consumer facing Apple services. The non-practicing entity is leveraging a set of fairly recent IP credited to Uniloc CEO and serial inventor Craig Etchegoyen.

A “patent troll” is an individual or an organization that purchases and holds patents for unscrupulous purposes such as stifling competition or launching patent infringement suits. In legal terms, a patent troll is a type of non-practicing entity: someone who...

Apple upgrades Mac Pro, promises radical modular...

Many of us wondered whether the Mac Pro line was dead, but Apple has told Daring Fireball’s John Gruber and others that it is continuing development on its high-end desktop, and will next year be releasing a ‘completely rethought’ model with a modular design intended to make the machine more upgradable.

Apple is currently hard at work on a “completely rethought” Mac Pro, with a modular design that can accommodate high-end CPUs and big honking hot-running GPUs, and which should make it easier for Apple to update with new components on a regular basis. 

The company is also updating the existing Mac Pro today – and will be making new Apple Displays to go with next year’s model, along with new pro-focused iMacs …

Rumor: Apple orders 70 million OLED units from...

A company doesn’t buy 70 million components unless you’re probably going to include it in a future product.

Apple has reportedly placed an order for 70 million OLED panels from Samsung, which looks to be set to become Apple’s sold OLED supplier.

Demand for the 2017 iPhone, which is expected to feature a major design overhaul with an edge-to-edge display, glass body, and a premium price tag, is expected to be high as it typically is in a year when a new look is unveiled. Apple and Samsung are gearing up to meet demand with the large panel order.

The story is followed by the following comment from IHS Markit analyst David Hsieh:

“Apple has ordered 70 million units of OLED panels from Samsung this year, while Samsung is preparing to churn out as many as 95 million for Apple in 2017, in case demand exceeds expectations.”

It’s rumored that the OLED panels will be in short supply come the next-gen iPhone’s launch in September, with the majority of...

Apple releases iOS 10.3.1 update, offers bug fixes,...

After a major OS update come the fixes.

Apple on Monday released iOS 10.3.1, an update available for its iOS devices available as an over-the-air update or when connected to iTunes via a Mac or Windows PC.

The update, which weighs in at just under 30 megabytes as an OTA download, resolves issues such as a hardware-specific problem wherein iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c handsets had trouble updating over the air.

The 5 and 5c were Apple’s last iPhone models with a 32-bit processor, the A6. Since the iPhone 5s all iOS devices have turned to 64-bit technology. Apple is in the process of phasing out 32-bit support, and indeed the iOS 10.3.2 beta appears to omit it entirely.

Among the core changes introduced in iOS 10.3 was the switch to the Apple File System, which is better optimized for flash storage. In some cases, the switch restored gigabytes of storage space to the device.

The update addresses bugs, offers security updates and also resolves a...

The Mac Pro Lives

Let’s not beat around the bush. I have great news to share:

Apple is currently hard at work on a “completely rethought” Mac Pro, with a modular design that can accommodate high-end CPUs and big honking hot-running GPUs, and which should make it easier for Apple to update with new components on a regular basis. They’re also working on Apple-branded pro displays to go with them.

I also have not-so-great news:

These next-gen Mac Pros and pro displays will not ship until next year. In the meantime, Apple is today releasing meager speed-bump updates to the existing Mac Pros. The $2999 model goes from 4 Xeon CPU cores to 6, and from dual AMD G300 GPUs to dual G500 GPUs. The $3999 model goes from 6 CPU cores to 8, and from dual D500 GPUs to dual D800 GPUs. Nothing else is changing, including the ports. No USB-C, no Thunderbolt 3 (and so no support for the LG UltraFine 5K display).

But more good news, too:

Apple has “great” new iMacs in the pipeline,...

NeuBible is the Bible app Apple would make (if it...

Increasingly, in worship services, I notice folks reading their Bibles and looking up Scripture on their iPhones and iPads. Hey, I'm one of them. My favorite iOS Bible app has been the NIV [New International Version] 50th Edition. However, my NEW favorite is the $4.99 NeuBible, which is available at the Apple App Store.

It's elegant and simple-yet-sophisticated. The creators of NeuBible — former Apple designer Kory Westerhold and Yahoo design director Aaron Martin say — their goal was to "get rid of everything between you and scripture." They've definitely succeeded in their goal. Think of this as the iBible.

I've tried NeuBible on both an iPhone 6, an iPhone 6 Plus, an iPad Air 2, an iPhone 7 Plus, and a 12.9-inch iPad Pro. It's great on the "smaller" Apple smartphone, but really shines on the bigger smartphones and tablets...

I wondered soon after the launch of the 2016 MacBook Pro whether Apple might have plans to bring the Touch Bar and Touch ID to a new Magic Keyboard. A new Apple patent application shows that the company is at least exploring the idea.

As ever, the language of the patent is dense, but the illustrations include a standalone keyboard as well as a laptop one.

In some embodiments, the device may also include a processing unit positioned within the housing, and a primary display positioned at least partially within the housing and configured to display a graphical-user interface executed by the processing unit. In some embodiments, the display is an organic light-emitting diode display. The electronic device may be a keyboard device.

Apple should implement live support in FaceTime

Screen sharing will likely be in a future feature of Apple's FaceTime. If/when it happens, I'd like to see Apple take things a step further.

Apple’s FaceTime service is a method of two-way personal communication only at the present. However, Apple has filed for a patent that would allow mobile app data sharing and collaboration over FaceTime.

That's great, but where is the Amazon Fire-like feature where you can get live support complete with remote control and administration? That would be extremely useful on a practical level for Mac/iOS device users and a great public relations move for Apple.

While we're on the subject, whatever happened to Apple's promise to open up FaceTime for the world. There’s an opportunity for business level functionality if the technology was opened up. Apple needs to rely on all computers — Window PCs included — to support the software in order for it to really become the...

Few accessory manufacturers have been around since the dawn of the Mac, but one was actually in existence pre-Mac: Belkin. The company was founded by Chet Pipkin (current CEO), who started building cables on his parents' dining room table in 1983. Now the company is well-known to most Apple users for its wide range of accessories, and today Belkin released its latest product -- the US$29.99 MIXIT DuraTek USB-C cable.

The new USB-C cable is a far cry from the original Belkin cables, featuring reinforced conductors with Kevlar® fiber added to improve durability and make a 5-year limited warranty possible. The MIXIT DuraTek USB-C cable is 4 feet long, and comes in black, silver, rose gold and gold colors. Not only does it look good with its long and flexible strain relief connectors, but the cable is MFi certified. 

Speaking of certification, Belkin was the first cable manufacturer to produce cables...

Industrial designer Christopher Stringer is leaving Apple after 21 years with the company, according to The Information. The article doesn't say whether he's retiring or taking another job.

Stringer, shown in the photo with Apple design guru Jony Ive, has been intimately involved with every Apple product since 1995. He was also the first person called to testify in the trial between Apple and Samsung.

He and Richard Howarth — joined Apple in 1996 and has been involved in the design of nearly every Apple product since the original iMac — were the top contenders to take over the design studio when Ive was promoted to Chief Design Officer. Howarth got the job two years ago.

According to Cult of Mac, Stringer worked on the early PowerBooks and tower computers. During his tenure at...

Hands-on with the SpiderPro DSLR Holster System

My Canon DSLR securely locked into a SpiderPro holster. Photo ©2017, Steven Sande

A good percentage of Apple World Today readers are owners of Digital SLR cameras (DSLRs) who use the interchangeable lenses and advanced capabilities of their cameras to take their photography beyond what's possible with iPhone cameras. While the photographic options are definitely better, carrying bulky DSLRs with the traditional neck straps can be a painful experience.

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

There’s something slightly unsettling about the name “WarFriends”—like, warfare isn’t a thing you do with pals for kicks. And this is very much a game about killing people, even if doused in a cartoonish, big-headed style. The title itself just sends a slight chill down my spine; it feels ill-considered.

Apple Wants To Sell Premium TV Channels in a Bundle

Apple isn't done trying to sell you pay TV. From a report on Recode: Here's Apple's latest proposal: It wants to sell consumers a premium TV bundle, which combines HBO, Showtime and Starz. Apple already sells each of those channels individually. But it has approached the three networks about rolling them up into a single package, as conventional pay TV operators sometimes do. The difference: Traditional pay TV operators, like Charter, usually require consumers to subscribe to a basic level of TV channels before it will sell them a premium bundle. Apple could sell the bundle as standalone product, delivered via its iOS devices and its Apple TV settop box. Apple doesn't have a bundle deal in place with any of the premium networks, industry sources say. Apple currently sells HBO for $15 a month, Showtime for $11 a month, and Starz for $9 a month.

Enlarge

iOS 10.3.1 is out. The release notes don't specify what it fixes that wasn't addressed in the wide-ranging iOS 10.3 update released just a week ago, but we do know that this new update includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad. Specifically, according to the more detailed notes on Apple's security page, 10.3.1 addresses a buffer overflow that could be exploited to execute code on your phone or tablet's Wi-Fi chip.

The bug is credited to Google's Project Zero, which discloses bugs to the public 90 days after telling...

Galaxy S8 vs. iPhone 8: Winning Has Little to Do...


The new Samsung Galaxy S8 has launched, and its target of choice is the as yet unlaunched Apple iPhone 8 Anniversary Edition. These phones are critical for both companies. Apple survives largely off the iPhone today, and Samsung is trying to recover both from its burning phone problem and from its top executive being arrested on bribery charges. Neither firm can afford a big loss to the other, and Samsung just came out of the gate with one hell of an opening salvo. Apple can focus on product, though, while Samsung has to restore its image.

Apple has just begun rolling out iOS 10.3.1 for iPhones and iPads.

Release notes for this particular update are light, only noting bug fixes and security improvements.

Apple still wants to sell you a skinny TV bundle

Apple needs one thing to make the Apple TV a must-own set-top box: a bundle of essential streaming channels that can compete with pay TV companies. But that’s not gonna happen—at least not anytime soon. So Apple is reportedly eyeing a skinnier subscription bundle of premium channels that it already offers à la carte.

According to Re/code, the company wants to bundle HBO, Showtime, and Starz in a premium package. You can already subscribe to each of those apps on iOS or the Apple TV for $15, $11, and $9 a month, respectively, and it’s unclear if Apple would discount those prices for a bundled subscription. (Hopefully?)

Could it be 2018 before we see substantial Mac...

Say it ain’t so:  Cannon Lake, Intel's next generation of Core processors, could arrive later than initially believed, after comments by a company executive suggest delays in development and mass production of the new processor, reports PC World. This could delay the anticipated 32GB MacBook Pro with Touch Bar until 2018.

It's hard to predict whether Cannon Lake shipments will happen before or after Christmas, Venkata Renduchintala, president of Intel’s PC, IoT, and chip design businesses, said at an Intel manufacturing event. The first Cannon Lake chips will be targeted at low-power laptops and 2-in-1s. PC makers typically need time to test the chips in laptops, so availability of the chips in mainstream PCs may drag into 2018, notes PC World

Instead, users will be able to get computers with Kaby...

The new machine should be even easier to work with than the current Model S, but perhaps its kindest feature is its price: The Pico Model C launches on Kickstarter for only $279 to early backers, and will sell for $549 when it hits full retail in the fall. We’re generally wary of covering Kickstarter projects, but Picobrew has a proven history of using crowdfunding feedback to improve its user experience, reaching all the way back to the original PicoBrew Zymatic...

Apple To Develop Its Own GPU, UK Chip Designer...

From a report on AnandTech: In a bombshell of a press release issued this morning, Imagination has announced that Apple has informed their long-time GPU partner that they will be winding down their use of Imagination's IP. Specifically, Apple expects that they will no longer be using Imagination's IP in 15 to 24 months. Furthermore the GPU design that replaces Imagination's designs will be, according to Imagination, "a separate, independent graphics design." In other words, Apple is developing their own GPU, and when that is ready, they will be dropping Imagination's GPU designs entirely. This alone would be big news, however the story doesn't stop there. As Apple's long-time GPU partner and the provider for the basis of all of Apple's SoCs going back to the very first iPhone, Imagination is also making a case to investors (and the public) that while Apple may be dropping Imagination's GPU designs for a custom design, that Apple can't develop a new GPU in isolation -- that any GPU...

The MIT Dropouts Who Created Ms. Pac-Man

I found the whole article fascinating, but this part in particular grabbed my attention:

Macrae and Curran’s arcade route – a series of machines they owned and operated both for their own profit and for the benefit of students – quickly expanded to three dorms, but they soon had trouble with declining revenues as people began to master the games. As arcade operators themselves, they had a direct financial stake in making the games more interesting. So they did what any clever MIT student would do in that situation: confront the problem with mathematical precision.

And:

At this point in the video game world there were these kits called speed-up kits or enhancement kits that were being sold directly to arcade owners. The first really successful one was for Asteroids because people learned how to beat Asteroids, and they could play forever on a quarter. So somebody game up with a little circuit that you could clip on, and wow, it made the game much more difficult...
