How to create a blank disk image for storage using...

Using the Disk Utility in macOS High Sierra, you can create a blank disk image for storage. A disk image (.dmg file) is a file that looks and acts like a mountable device or volume. You can fill an empty disk image with data, then use it to create disks, CDs, or DVDs.

To create an empty disk image:

  • Choose File > New Image > Blank Image.
  • Enter a file name for the disk image, add tags if necessary, then choose where to save it. This is the name that appears in the Finder, where you save the disk image file before opening it.
  • In the Name field, enter the name for the disk image.
  • This is the name that appears on your desktop and in the Finder sidebar, after you open the disk image.
  • In the Size field, enter a size for the disk image.
  • Click the Format pop-up menu, then choose the format for the disk:
  • If the disk will be used with Mac computers, choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled) or Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive,...

The T2 chip makes the iMac Pro the start of a Mac...

I’ve spent the last week with Apple’s new iMac Pro, and in most ways it’s just a faster Mac. It's the first pro Mac desktop in over three years and the fastest Mac yet made, granted, but still entirely familiar. And yet in many ways—some noticeable, some entirely invisible—this new Mac is completely different from all past Mac models.

The iMac Pro may be an outlier today, but in the future we’ll probably look back on it as the start of a new era for the Mac, all because of the Apple-built T2 chip it carries inside. Here’s how the T2 makes this iMac Pro unlike all other Macs.

The power behind the throne

The T2 processor isn’t doing the heavy lifting in the iMac Pro—that’s the Intel Xeon processor with between 8 and 14 processor cores. The T2 is the brain behind that brain, running the subsystems of the iMac Pro from a single piece of Apple-built silicon. The result is a simplified internal design that doesn’t require multiple components from multiple...

Some Apple Watch Series 3 users reporting unexpected...

If you’re an Apple Watch Series 3 owner, you might want to keep it out of certain hospital environments.

A number of users have commented that their Apple Watch Series 3 have undergone unexpected reboots in the intensive care units of some hospitals. This suggests there may be specific ICU-related equipment used in hospitals that could be interfering with Apple Watch Series 3 with or without cellular functionality.

In the case of one user, an Apple Watch Series 3 unit he’d bought for his wife regularly experienced reboots every 60-90 minutes when wearing Apple Watch in the ICU setting. Even though the Apple Watch was replaced with a new unit, the issue persisted.

Similar stories have been reported since the device’s release last fall. The solution to avoiding reboots in the ICU environment seems to be using the Apple Watch in airplane mode, although that stops the Apple Watch from receiving alerts.

Apple has partially repaired effects of Intel “KPTI...

Following public disclosure of a security flaw with nearly every Intel processor produced for the last 15 years, concern grew that a fix may take up to 30 percent of the processing power away from a system. But Apple appears to have at least partially fixed the problem with December’s macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 with additional fixes seeming likely appear to be coming in macOS 10.13.3.

A number of anonymous sources within Apple have confirmed that routines exist within macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 that could grant applications access to protected kernel memory data. These measures, alongside existing programming requirements regarding kernel memory that Apple has implemented over the past decade, seem to have mitigated much of the issue.

The fix was further confirmed by developer Alex Ionescu, who called the code regarding the issue the “Double Map.”

Ionescu, along with other sources, said that changes implemented in macOS High Sierra, will resolve the issue. All...

Augmented Reality isn't proving to be "the next big thing," Apple adds a news podcast feature to Siri in the newest iOS 11.2.5 beta, and Mophie creates a product that can keep a USB-C MacBook running for up to 15 hours over what the internal battery can offer:

  • A recent survey from Apptopia shows that developer interest in AR appears to be nearly nonexistent, with AR apps making up only about 0.03% of all apps in the App Store
  • Soon, you'll be able to ask Siri to "Give me the news" and get a short news digest podcast in return
  • Mophie's new Powerstation AC is going to be very popular with MacBook owners, as it can give the little laptop a total of over a day of battery life

Old Siri Dictation icon from Mac OS X

This is the ninth post in our annual 12-part series covering the accessibility features we would like to see Apple bring to its products in the coming year. This series is being put together by Accessibility Editor Alex Jurgensen, with the help of several contributors.

Dictation, or, in this context, the ability to type by speaking into a computer, is something I use in iOS quite often. I also have gone through times where it has been absolutely essential to my ability to keep up with work tasks across iOS and macOS. It has come a long way since it's introduction alongside Siri's iPhone integration in 2011 but it still has a long way to go to be the accurate typing assistant many of us need it to be. For example, dictation still often misunderstands speech. It's editing commands, such as those for...

Note that Amazon is out of stock of the mouse until Sunday, but you can still order it right now for the sale price.

What makes this mouse so popular is that it packs so many great features into a single device. For starters, the MX Master 2S is a 4000 DPI mouse, with a touted battery life of up to 70 days, and works on almost any surface without a mouse pad—including glass.

This model also comes with the same “hyper scroll wheel” that the original MX Master had, which lets you speed scroll through a document or webpage. Tap a button, however, and it becomes a click-to-click...

Last week it was reported that Apple Michigan Avenue, Apple’s flagship store in Chicago, was having problems with winter weather in the Windy City.

Specifically, there are no gutters to catch falling snow or ice. Nor is the roof sloping, so icicles that do form dangle from 20 some feet overhead. However, Apple says it’s software problem, not the design of the store itself and its MacBook Pro-inspired roof.

Apple spokesman Nick Leahy tells the Chicago Tribune that said the building's architects, London-based Foster + Partners, had designed the glass-walled store with winter in mind, but had been foiled by a technical malfunction.

Realmac's Typed.com blogging platform to shut...

About three years ago when Apple World Today was launching, one of our first sponsors was Typed, a simple blogging platform that was being developed by Realmac Software and funded through Indiegogo. Yesterday, Realmac's Dan Counsell reported that "with a heavy heart...the time has finally come to shut down the typed.com servers."

Typed has been in financial trouble for a while. Counsell wanted to make sure that the platform was not cluttered with ads in order to keep the service running, and back in August of 2017 he announced that Realmac was looking for another company that would be willing to carry Typed forward into the future. That didn't happen, so the company is shutting down Typed.com on January 31.

The 'App' You Can't Trash: How SIP is...

A reader shares a blog post that talks about why Mac running High Sierra 10.13.2 (and other versions near it) refuses to let users uninstall some third-party applications easily. For instance, when users attempt to uninstall BlueStacks, an Android emulator, the Finder shows this warning: "The operation can't be completed because you don't have the necessary permission." The blog post looks into the subject: The moment that we see the word permission, all becomes clear: it's a permissions problem. So the next step is to select the offending item in the Finder, press Command-I to bring up the Get Info dialog, and change the permissions. It does, though, leave the slight puzzle as to why the Finder didn't simply prompt for authentication instead of cussedly refusing. Sure enough, after trying that, the app still won't go and the error message is unchanged. Another strange thing about this 'app' is that it's not an app at all. Tucked away in a mysterious folder, new to High Sierra, in...

Apple blames software, not roof design, for Chicago...

Apple’s gorgeous new Michigan Avenue flagship store looked like the worst example of form over function last week when snow along the Chicago River front meant parts of the store needed to be roped off. Did Apple really design an Apple Store that couldn’t handle a bit of frosty weather in a city like Chicago? The design wasn’t the issue, says Apple, but rather a software malfunction…

Explainer: Why Apple didn’t put long-distance...

Back when Android manufacturers were adding wireless charging to their phones and Apple wasn’t, one popular theory was that the iPhone maker was skipping contact-based chargers and holding out for long-distance ones. In the end, of course, Apple finally opted for the same contact-based Qi chargers as everyone else.

But resonance chargers – which require the device to be placed extremely close to the charging coils – offer limited benefit. Sure, it’s convenient to be able to just put your iPhone X down on a wireless charging dock and pick it up again later without having to fiddle with the Lightning cable, but you still have just as many cables as ever – they are now simply attached to docks.

RF-based long-distance charging – promoted by companies like Energous – promises far greater benefit, allowing devices to be charged anywhere in the same room as the charger. So why didn’t Apple wait...

OLED technology is prone to image burn-in -- something that Apple worked hard to compensate for in designing the hardware and software of the iPhone X. A new and extreme stress test puts the iPhone X anti-burn-in capabilities to the test, discovering Apple's efforts have, in fact, put it ahead of the competition under the most difficult conditions.

iMac Pro teardown, lots of pics

There’s a lot to love in this teardown. The insides of the iMac Pro are gorgeous. What a clean looking design.

With the iMac Retina 5K, to change out RAM, you popped open the rear door and had at it.

With the iMac Pro, you’ll pretty much need to jump through all the hoops iFixit did. That said, the good news is, you can still upgrade the RAM yourself:

We waste no time in testing a little upgrade: How does four 32 GB modules for a “Maxxed” total of 128 GB sound? After speedily reassembling everything, we’re pleased to report that the result is epic.

No doubt.

Analysts: Amazon, Google’s discounted speakers cost...

Reuters reports that Amazon and Google’s Alphabet division both discounted their virtual assistant speakers so deeply over the holiday shopping season that they likely lost a few dollars per unit, “highlighting a sharply different strategy from Apple as it prepares its HomePod speaker,” according to pundits such as Paul Erickson, a senior analyst with IHS Markit and Adam Wright, senior research analyst at IDC.

Both companies cut prices for the smallest version of their speakers, the Amazon Echo Dot and Google Home Mini, to as little as $29 from $50 for the U.S. holidays. Midlevel versions cost a bit more than twice as much.

LG reportedly to supply OLED panels for a 6.5-inch...

The Korea Herald reports that while Samsung will remain the sole or primary supplier of the OLED panels for the current, 5.8-inch version of the iPhone X, LG will supply panels for a bigger 6.5-inch model due this year.

The article says LG Display will start production in the second quarter at its E6 plant in Paju, Gyeonggi Province. The plant, consisting of two OLED production lines, has a monthly production capacity of six million OLED screens but its full-capacity production is expected to start next year considering its still low yield rate, per The Korea Herald.

In November 2017, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told clients that Apple has a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone planned for the second half of 2018. He says it will be the general size of a Plus-sized iPhone and add an edge-to-edge OLED display.

Test shows how good iPhone X’s OLED screen is at...

.

Chris Smith, BGR:

If the same image is shown on an OLED screen for a long period of time, burn-in effects may set in. This goes for TVs, monitors, and smartphones. It took the iPhone X 510 hours of continuously displaying the exact same image on the iPhone X for burn-in effects to become permanent. That’s Cetizen’s conclusion, and that’s great news for all iPhone X users.

And:

Cetizen stopped at various intervals to check for burn-in traces, but the iPhone X did not show visible effects until hitting the 510-hour mark. The screens on the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S7 Edge, meanwhile, were impacted sooner.

The original site quoted by BGR is in Chinese but is pretty understandable if you use Google Translate to translate the page to...

New UK law banning debit/credit card fees will...

As of Jan. 13, the UK will ban shops and stores from charging a fee for credit card and debit card transactions, according to The Bristol Post. This will eliminate additional fees for credit and debit transactions, including those with Apple Pay.

The law applies to both in-store and online payments and includes American Express and other payment methods such as PayPal. All purchases made in the UK from UK businesses will be protected by the law, and it will also apply to any surcharging by local councils and government agencies agencies, according to The Post. The law also follows an EU directive, meaning companies across the EU will also be banned from applying this surcharge.

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

Fundamental design flaw in Intel chips forces...

The Register:

A fundamental design flaw in Intel’s processor chips has forced a significant redesign of the Linux and Windows kernels to defang the chip-level security bug.

Programmers are scrambling to overhaul the open-source Linux kernel’s virtual memory system. Meanwhile, Microsoft is expected to publicly introduce the necessary changes to its Windows operating system in an upcoming Patch Tuesday: these changes were seeded to beta testers running fast-ring Windows Insider builds in November and December.

And:

Similar operating systems, such as Apple’s 64-bit macOS, will also need to be updated – the flaw is in the Intel x86-64 hardware, and it appears a microcode update can’t address it. It has to be fixed in software at the OS level, or go buy a new processor without the design blunder.

The worst news is that since the issue is in the hardware itself, a software patch of something so deeply rooted in the pipeline will cause a performance hit...

A fundamental design flaw in Intel's processor chips means Linux and Windows will need a redesign, while other operating systems such as macOS will need an update, reports The Register.

The flaw is in the Intel x86-64 hardware, and apparently it has to be fixed in software at the operating system level — or replaced by a new processor without the glitch, the article adds. In other words, Apple will have to release an update to the Mac’s operating system to deal with the problem. 

Obviously, the tech giant isn’t going to be happy about the situation. Which will certainly add fire to the (not unreasonable) speculation that Apple will eventually design its own chips for its Mac, as well as iOS, devices.

"By designing its own chips, Apple can better differentiate itself from others. Further, depending too much on other chip suppliers in the age of artificial...

Sapna Maheshwari, New York Times:

At first glance, the gaming apps — with names like “Pool 3D,” “Beer Pong: Trickshot” and “Real Bowling Strike 10 Pin” — seem innocuous. One called “Honey Quest” features Jumbo, an animated bear.

Yet these apps, once downloaded onto a smartphone, have the ability to keep tabs on the viewing habits of their users — some of whom may be children — even when the games aren’t being played.

Yesterday, we posted about a technique ad houses use to glean your identity using your browser’s password manager.

This is a similar data-farming trick, this time using your phone’s microphone to track your TV watching habits.

Apple Watch is an excellent health and fitness tracker that can actually save lives, but something about the latest model may be causing issues for users who work in certain hospital environments. A number of Apple Watch users including a 9to5Mac reader report unexpected reboots on Apple Watch Series 3.

The common thread appears to be using the Apple Watch in the intensive care unit of some hospitals. This suggests there may be specific ICU-related equipment used in hospitals that could be interfering with Apple Watch Series 3 with or without cellular.

HSD Versions Cleaner is a relatively new app for the Mac, but one worth checking out. With it you can observe and delete old files. For instance, it can help you reduce the amount of previous file versions, stored by the macOS’s Auto Save feature.

Depending on what you do with your Mac, such previous file versions can occupy a lot of disc space, even though macOS doesn’t keep them forever. With HSD Versions Cleaner, you can define criteria which previous file versions should be deleted automatically in the background, which is very convenient.

Easy to use, HSD Versions Cleaner gives you control over how many old file versions should be kept for selected documents. You can delete a selection of old file versions manually or define criteria when certain old file versions should be deleted automatically. Both observing and deleting old file versions is done within a single application window.

HSD Versions Cleaner requires macOS 10.11 or higher and costs $2.99. It’...
