Hands-on: The entry-level Mid-2017 5K iMac is a...

For $1799, the entry-level 5K iMac is a very good deal for anyone looking for a powerful machine that can be upgraded to some extent. Of course, when it comes to an all-in-one machine like the iMac, the term “upgrade” is used loosely, but it’s still fairly remarkable how much headroom you can garner from Apple’s entry-level 27-inch 5K machine.

In this hands-on post and video walkthrough, we’ll consider several reasons why the base-model 5K iMac is such a compelling proposition for those in need of a new Mac. In fact, it’s arguably the best deal in Macs that Apple currently offers. more…

Yesterday we looked at a minimalist case for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro -- the Moshi VersaCover. This case is great for those of us who work indoors, but it certainly wouldn't provide a huge amount of protection in the great outdoors. That's where the new Urban Armor Gear Metropolis Case for 10.5-inch iPad Pro is supposed to excel as it's apparently designed to take drops onto hard surfaces and keep your tablet safe. This case retails for $59.95 on both the UAG website and on Amazon (affiliate link - your purchase helps to...

Microsoft Targets Google and Apple in Schools With...

An anonymous reader shares a report: Microsoft is launching a new subscription program for buying Surface computers and tablets in much the same way that many people now purchase smartphones, with no-interest financing for two years and the ability to upgrade to a new device before the term is up. Announced this morning at the launch of back-to-school season, the initiative is part of a broader push by Microsoft to gain new momentum in U.S. schools, where Google Chromebooks have taken the lead vs. Microsoft and Apple.

Microsoft's Surface Laptop, Surface Pro, Surface Book and Surface Studio are all options under the program.

Apple wants tax breaks for its suppliers for making...

Apple has asked the government of India to extend tax breaks to its suppliers if the country wants to become a manufacturing hub for iPhones and its components, reports Reuters.

Government officials say meeting this request would require a new policy that applies fairly to other device makers, too. Apple has been in talks with Indian officials since May of last year, when CEO Tim Cook and Prime Minister Narendra Modi agreed to set up a production base in the country that goes beyond just assembling the devices, as happens today.

According Reuters, the two sides have been discussing a list of "prerequisites" that Apple submitted in October, including duty exemption on raw materials for manufacturing components and...

Steve Bartman receives 2016 Chicago Cubs World...

Amazing. If this headline didn’t mean anything to you, this from the Steve Bartman incident Wikipedia page:

The incident occurred in the eighth inning of Game 6 of the National League Championship Series (NLCS), with Chicago ahead 3–0 and holding a three games to two lead in the best of seven series. Moisés Alou attempted to catch a foul ball off the bat of Marlins second baseman Luis Castillo. Bartman reached for the ball, deflected it, and disrupted the potential catch.

That moment was seen as a huge turning point in the Cubs fortunes. Instead of holding on to the lead and moving on to the World Series (at the time, the Cubs had the longest World Series draught in baseball), the Cubs went on to give up 8 runs in the inning, lose the game, then lose the next game, ending their World Series hopes.

This was a huge story at the time, with Bartman’s life being turned upside down....

The Independent:

Apple and Google have removed hundreds of trading apps from their online stores after an intervention by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) to crack down on online fraud.

In a statement on Tuesday, ASIC said it had conducted a sweeping review of mobile app stores focusing on those associated with so-called binary options trading. It said that the review highlighted over 330 apps that were offered by entities and individuals that appeared to be unlicensed.

Terrible scam, some reports of people losing their life savings.

More evidence that Apple is building its own...

Motley Fool:

Apple is also the only major smartphone manufacturer left that uses standalone modems. Other smartphone vendors use either integrated applications processor and baseband solutions from third parties (e.g., Qualcomm) or make their own integrated parts (e.g., Samsung and Huawei).


On Apple’s job board, the company says it’s looking for a “Sr. Digital IC (PHY) Design Engineer.” Under the “job summary” section of the listing, Apple says the individual chosen for this position “will be part of a silicon design group responsible for digital baseband logic design in state-of-the-art wireless ICs.”

That’s not the only related listing on the company’s job board. Apple also has multiple positions related to RFIC design and layout. RFIC stands for “radio frequency integrated circuit.”

In another listing — this time for a “Sr. RFIC Design Engineer” — Apple says whoever fills the position “will be at the center of a wireless SoC [system-on-a-...

Drama in Apple's quarterly earnings expected...

After the close of business on Tuesday, Apple will report the results for what is seasonally its slowest quarter of the year, with Apple and industry watchers predicting around $44 billion in revenue. But all eyes are on Apple's guidance for the fourth fiscal quarter, to see how confident the company is about the "iPhone 8" launch.

How much will the new iPhone cost?

Horace Dediu:

The evidence suggests that Apple prefers to keep average pricing for all products constant. Individual variants are priced so that, as the category matures, the changing mix leads to consistency in price ownership.

Thus the iPhone can be seen as controlling the $650 point, the Mac $1200, the iPod $200 and the iPad $450. This pricing signals the product’s value and the value of the brand.

The signaling is not just to buyers but also to competitors. Ownership of price forces competitors to occupy adjacent brackets.


The overall pattern looks like a staircase with a widening price range where the lowest price remains constant and the upper price rises every three years by $100.

The “floor” of the range is a consistent $400 while the “ceiling” has expanded from $700 to about $950.

This year’s ceiling is due for the fourth leg up and if the pattern persists, we should expect it to reach $1100.

Interesting look at...

We described recently how Apple relies on an entire network of suppliers centred around the Chinese city of Shenzhen. Tim Cook’s discussions with Indian prime minister Narendra Modi have extended to establishing a kind of Little Shenzhen within India …

Apple granted a patent for a voice and touch user...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,719,797) for a voice and touch user interface for CarPlay. Compatible with iPhone 5 and later models, CarPlay provides a simplified way to use your iPhone interface on a car’s touch screen, giving users access to Siri voice controls, as well as Apple Maps, Apple Music, Phone, Messages, and a variety of third party apps.

The invention involves an electronic device capable of touch input through a touch-sensitive surface and/or voice input through a microphone. Apple says the electronic device may be used in an automobile. For example, some or all of the gadget may be mounted in a CarPlay dashboard for use while driving. 

The system could provide informational content, entertainment content, navigation, and communication features in such a manner that user interaction may be minimized, thus providing a safe driving experience, according to Apple. This can be accomplished by performing tasks and presenting content automatically,...

It says that the review highlighted over 330 apps that were offered by entities and individuals that appeared to be unlicensed. A total of 63% of those examined were offered by so-called binary option issuers and facilitated trading, according to the Independent.

FSC certifies 320,000 acres of working forest that...

Apple says the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) has certified approximately 320,000 acres of working forest that the company supports in China, enough for all its product packaging.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an international non-profit NGO established in 1993, promotes responsible management of the world's forests with standards on forest products, along with certifying and labeling them as eco-friendly.

According to an email from Apple to the Xinhua news source, two-thirds of the forest is owned and managed by Maoyuan Forestry, a private company in central China's Hunan Province. The rest is owned and managed by state-owned Qinlian Forestry Company in southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The land includes semi-natural forests and forest plantations.

Apple launched its forestry program in 2015, aiming to have over one million acres of...

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for both macOS and iOS was down last month.

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 6.02% of the global market share in July, down from from 6.12% percent in June (that’s global market share; in the U.S. it’s over 13%).

Developers uncover hints as to HomePod’s RAM,...

Deep within Apple’s firmware update for the upcoming HomePod, some of the critical specs have been found.

Developer Steve Troughton-Smith shared last week that HomePod will run a full iOS stack and uses a shell app called SoundBoard. He also mentioned more specifics about the display/touch surface stating “The center part of the HomePod surface appears to be an LED matrix and not just big LEDs—could perhaps display shapes/symbols.”

Troughton-Smith’s retweet of another developer’s findings noted that HomePod’s display will come in at 272 x 340 and the smart speaker will feature 1GB RAM. Even if it doesn’t sound like much in this day and age, this will probably be plenty for the device’s feature set.

The HomePod is due out later this year and will compete with other smart speaker systems, such as those made by Amazon and Google.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

Is the iPhone 'Years' Ahead of Android In...

Former Google senior vice president of Social, Vic Gundotra, said that Android phones are years behind the iPhone when it comes to photography. In a Facebook post, Gundotra said: "The end of the DSLR for most people has already arrived. I left my professional camera at home and took these shots at dinner with my iPhone 7 using computational photography (portrait mode as Apple calls it). Hard not to call these results (in a restaurant, taken on a mobile phone with no flash) stunning. Great job Apple." 9to5Mac reports: In response to a comment suggesting that the Samsung S8 camera was even better, Business Insider spotted that Gundotra disagreed. He said that not only was Apple way ahead of Samsung, but Android was to blame. From Gundotra's Facebook post: "I would never use an Android phone for photos! Here is the problem: It's Android. Android is an open source (mostly) operating system that has to be neutral to all parties. This sounds good until you get into the details. Ever...

Microsoft's Word Flow keyboard for the iPhone had one unique feature when it launched more than a year ago: a one-handed mode that could be used with either your left or right thumb. Now, according to a support note spotted by Windows Central, it appears Microsoft is consolidating and removing the keyboard from the App Store, encouraging users to download SwiftKey instead. The Verge reports: Microsoft has tested out a number of iOS keyboards, and it now appears the company is focusing solely on SwiftKey after acquiring the app last year. We haven't seen any major additions to SwitftKey since Microsoft acquired it, apart from a separate Swiftmoji emoji predictor in July last year. Microsoft's SwiftKey keyboard now competes against the likes of Google's Gboard keyboard and various other iOS and Android keyboards. Have you been using Word Flow on your iPhone? If so, what has your experience been with the application? Do you plan on switching to Gboard or another third-party keyboard...

HomePod Devs Stumble Upon Next iPhone Design Clues

Developers combing through the code for the Apple HomePod have found clues to what appear to be features in the next generation of iPhones, and they tweeted their discoveries on Sunday. The firmware for HomePod, Apple's $349 smart speaker expected in December, apparently contains much of the codebase for future iPhones. One of the goodies in the HomePod's code is a new biometric method for unlocking an iPhone. The use of facial recognition to unlock a phone has been around in the Android world for more than a year, and reactions have been mixed.

Apple expands the tester limits in TestFlight

Apple has expanded the tester limits in TestFlight, its free iOS app testing platform that’s part of iTunes Connect. Developers can now invite up to 10,000 users to beta test their apps before they’re released on the App Store. 

TestFlight lets developers distribute and test multiple builds at the same time, so testers can choose from a number of builds to test. Developers can create groups of TestFlight users, and each group can test a different build. ‘

iTunes Connect is a suite of web-based tools for managing content sold on the iTunes Store, iBookStore, and the App Store for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch. Members of the Apple Developer Program can use this tool to manage apps, agreements, tax and banking information, sales reports, and more.

Daredevil thieves steal $590,000 of iPhones from a...

According to De Telegraaf — as noted by AppleInsider — police in the Netherlands have arrested five Romanian thieves suspected of stealing iPhones worth 500,000 euros (about $590,000).

Like something out of a Fast and Furious flick, the gang purportedly used a high-risk technique of breaking into the back door of delivery trucks while they were still rolling down the highway.

One gang member would drive the gang’s van behind the targeted vehicle, while another climbed through the sunroof of the van and stood on the hood, which was fitted with an anti-slip mat. With a third holding them still, the member on the hood would break the rear doors of the truck before entering the truck...

On Apple Removing VPN Apps From the App Store in...

From the company blog of ExpressVPN, a major VPN provider serving users in China:

We received notification from Apple today, July 29, 2017, at
roughly 04:00 GMT, that the ExpressVPN iOS app was removed from
the China App Store. Our preliminary research indicates that all
major VPN apps for iOS have been removed.

Users in China accessing a different territory’s App Store (i.e.
they have indicated their billing address to be outside of China)
are not impacted; they can download the iOS app and continue to
receive updates as before. […]

Users in China can continue to stay connected to the open internet
with ExpressVPN’s apps for Windows, Mac, Android, and other

Siri’s job

Ben Bajarin:

The key behavior usages between both assistants is not a surprise since Google is, and will always be, better than Siri at searching the web. Google’s mission is to organize the world’s data and they will do that better than anyone. Therefore their AI agent will always be the best at search. The challenge we have today with consumer sentiment around Siri is with its weakness for general Internet search. If consumers do this regularly and want to use a voice assistant for searching and general information queries, Siri is not going to beat Google. Apple’s challenge is to help consumers understand the jobs where Siri is best.

I agree with Ben with everything in this article. My problem is that I tried to use Siri to schedule appointments and do some of the life duties that it’s supposedly so good at. The problem is, it didn’t work that well, and when something doesn’t work well, I stop using it. That’s what happened with Siri for me.

The new Siri...

Review: Protecting the 10.5-inch iPad Pro in style...

Now that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro has been in stores for a while, we're beginning to see more accessories for the device. Since not everyone needs a keyboard case, we decided to take a look at the Moshi VersaCover for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro (US$54.95). This case is not only a protective cover for your iPad Pro, but also acts as a stand for watching movies, typing on the screen, or engaging in FaceTime conversations.


Available in black or "Sakura Pink", the VersaCover features a microfiber interior and a textured polyurethane exterior -- that's the origami-like folding stand portion that covers your screen. The back side is a clear polycarbonate that protects the back of the iPad Pro while displaying the back of the device.

The iPad Pro is held securely in a polycarbonate frame with ports for the speakers, Lightning cable, and headphone...

Apple is About To Do Something Their Programmers...

Last week, The Wall Street Journal had a big feature on Apple Campus, the big new beautiful office the company has spent north of $5 billion on. The profile, in which the reporter interviewed Apple's design chief Jony Ive, also mentioned about an open space where all the programmers would sit and work. Ever since the profile came out, several people have expressed their concerns about the work environment for the developers. American entrepreneur and technologist Anil Dash writes: [...] There have been countless academic studies confirming the same result: Workers in open plan offices are frustrated, distracted and generally unhappy. That's not to say there's no place for open plan in an offices -- there can be great opportunities to collaborate and connect. For teams like marketing or communications or sales, sharing a space might make a lot of sense. But for tasks that require being in a state of flow? The science is settled. The answer is clear.

We liked these tips from Amped Wireless VP of Networking Jason Owen so much that we thought we'd pass them along to Apple World Today readers. Enjoy!

It is estimated by research firm IHS that the IoT market will grow from an installed base of 15.4 billion devices in 2015 to 30.7 billion devices in 2020 and 75.4 billion in 2025. Our washing machines, coffee pots, thermostats, lights, probably even the toilet and the kitchen sink will all be hooked up to our home Wi-Fi networks. While this will likely lead to more convenience when it comes to home management and maintenance it will also create bottlenecks on home networks slowing down your smart phone, tablet and laptops.

It’s been a well-known secret since iOS 9 that one of the best iPhone keyboards is made by one of Apple’s oldest competitors. But if you don’t already own a copy of Microsoft’s Word Flow, your window to buy one has closed.

It was barely a year ago when Microsoft surprisingly released Word Flow, a free iOS version of its popular Windows Phone keyboard. Born out of its experimental Garage arm, Word Flow was built for one reason: speed. With swipe typing and a unique arched one-handed mode, Word Flow redefined speed typing on iOS and quickly rocketed to the top of the charts.
