$20 WyzeCam Security Camera Is Almost Too Good to Be...

A Wi-Fi security camera for $20? What’s the catch? Josh Centers shares his experiences with the unbelievably cheap WyzeCam. It’s well-built, has a decent app, works in the dark, and even provides limited cloud storage for free. There’s only one minor problem.

Review: PowerVision PowerEgg Camera Drone

What looks like a large white egg, weighs 4.6 pounds (2,100 grams), shoots 4K photos and video, and flies? Sounds like a joke, right? It's not, but if it was the punch line would be the PowerVision PowerEgg (US$1,288), a very unique camera drone that stands apart from the usual quadcopters that are so prevalent today. As you’ll find in this review, the PowerEgg is an extremely capable drone that both new and experienced pilots should consider.

This review was also published on our sister site Drone World Today.

Why you should use Malwarebytes to protect your Mac

When we cover dozens of stories each year about Mac related security issues and malware discovered in the wild, it’s hard to imagine that the misconception that “Macs don’t get viruses” still exists. Although there is some truth to it. Macs are much more resilient to what are commonly classified as “viruses” and in general malware is much more rare for Mac users versus Windows. But that doesn’t mean Mac users don’t need to protect themselves from malware threats. And it’s not just malware, there are a long list of other threats that Mac users should be aware of and protecting themselves against.

The security experts at long-time Mac software developer Malwarebytes are often the source of security stories we cover throughout the year on 9to5Mac. We’ve come to trust its team for the many discoveries and coverage of malware and security related issues for Mac users. That’s why it’s easy to give a recommendation...

Apple Pay leads Google Pay in usage, interest among...

Dealspotr — a site “brands, influencers and shoppers connect to share today's best deals” — says that its research shows that Apple Pay leads Google Pay in usage and interest among Millennials and GenZ-ers.

Dealspotr ran a survey during February using Google Market Research. They surveyed 1,000 people total: 500 Millennials (females and males aged 25 to 34) and 500 Generation Z (females and males aged 18 to 24). 

Dealspotr found a higher adoption of Apple Pay among young adults than they expected. Their research shows that 15% of young adults have used Apple’s mobile payment service while shopping online.

In-store, 11% of Millennials and 10% of GenZers have used Apple Pay to pay for items in the checkout line. Apple Pay (10%) was significantly more popular than rival payment platforms Google Pay (4%) and Samsung Pay (2%). However, credit card and PayPal remain the dominant forms of payment (actual and...

Human rights groups worried about Apple’s iCloud...

Apple is moving iCloud accounts registered in mainland China to state-run Chinese servers on Wednesday along with the digital keys needed to unlock them, and this has privacy advocates and human rights groups worried.

"The changes being made to iCloud are the latest indication that China's repressive legal environment is making it difficult for Apple to uphold its commitments to user privacy and security," Amnesty International warned in a statement.

“Apple has been criticized for blocking Chinese users' access to the Apple News app and for removing VPN apps from the App Store in China,” the human rights group says. “The changes being made to iCloud are the latest indication that China’s repressive legal environment is making it difficult for Apple to uphold its commitments to user privacy and security.”...

WatchKit is a sweet solution that will only ever...

Marco Arment:

Developers weren’t given access to make native apps until the iPhone’s second year. Before the native development kit was ready, Apple tried to pass off web apps as a “sweet solution” for third-party apps, but nobody was fooled.

Apple wasn’t using web apps for their own built-in iPhone apps — they were using native code and frameworks to make real apps. Developers like me did our best with web apps, but they sucked. We simply couldn’t make great apps without access to the real frameworks.


Developing Apple Watch apps is extremely frustrating and limited for one big reason: unlike on iOS, Apple doesn’t give app developers access to the same watchOS frameworks that they use on Apple Watch.

Instead, we’re only allowed to use WatchKit, a baby UI framework that would’ve seemed rudimentary to developers even in the 1990s. But unlike the iPhone’s web apps, WatchKit doesn’t appear to be a stopgap — it seems to be Apple’s long-term...

M. Night Shyamalan to produce straight-to-series...


M. Night Shyamalan is heading to Apple.

The streaming service has given a straight-to-series order to a psychological thriller series from writer Tony Basgallop that Shyamalan will executive produce. Plot details for the series are being kept under wraps. The half-hour series has received a 10-episode order, with Shyamalan also set to direct the first episode.

To me, M. Night Shyamalan is exasperating. I am a huge fan of The Sixth Sense, and the connected series, Unbreakable, Split, and the upcoming Glass. But interspersed throughout those movies is a series of projects that just left me cold. And there were a lot of them.

Shyamalan’s most recent TV effort was Wayward Pines, well received, but it ultimately ended after two seasons.

Fingers crossed on this one.

An analysis of security updates by SecurityLab for different smartphone brands gives the iPhone top billing. When it came to Android brands, however, “only two managed halfway decent ratings, with many big brands being rated poorly,” notes 9to5Mac

SecurityLab tweeted a table which examined four different factors:

  • The shortest time to publish a security update following discovery of a vulnerability.
  • The maximum delay in making the update available to all.
  • Whether or not updates were independent of carriers.
  • How long a device is supported with security updates

Apple was rated green in all categories. Its shortest time to issue an update was measured in days,...

Timers, reminders, alarms—oh, my!

Dr. Drang, Leancrew:

I decided to dig into the many ways you can set timed alerts on your Apple devices and how the alert systems vary from device to device. It is, you will not be surprised to learn, a mess.

This is a fascinating read, everything you’d ever want to know about timers, reminders, and alarms, and the way they are shared amongst the varied OSes in the Apple ecosystem.

But to me, this is emblematic of many other ecosystem elements. As you read through this, think about photos, music, your documents, even Siri access.

At the same time, to be fair, realize that we are at HomePodOS version 1.0. Surely the HomePod sharing model will evolve significantly over time.

Elon Musk wants to use satellites to bring broadband...


When Elon Musk’s SpaceX heaved two communications satellites aloft last week, he joined a space race that’s foiled plenty of other dreamers.

Billions of dollars have vanished in the quest to provide internet service from low-earth orbit. Globalstar Inc. and Iridium Communications Inc. crashed into bankruptcy but are still at it, while another effort folded despite backing from Bill Gates, Boeing Co. and others.

But the failure of others has never stopped Musk. Especially where space is concerned.

Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies Corp., Greg Wyler’s OneWeb, Boeing, and Canada’s Telesat are among the companies that have asked the Federal Communications Commission for permission to offer broadband service using satellites.

This is a race. And I believe someone in this pack might ultimately succeed.

And if that does happen, will it lower the cost of internet access? Will it provide broadband everywhere, an alternative to cell...

The Computer History Museum named former Apple executive Dan’l Lewin as its new CEO and president. He was one of Steve Jobs’ top guys back in the early days of Apple, notes Cult of Mac

Lewin served in a number of marketing roles from 1981 to 1985 and was recruited by Jobs to join his new company, NeXT, after Jobs was fired from Apple. 

Lewin will lead the organization through its next phase of growth, including expanding the museum’s interpretation efforts and content and media creation to further reach and impact global audiences. He will develop and direct the strategy, fundraising, and ongoing operations of the museum, including those of its Exponential Center — dedicated to entrepreneurship and innovation — and the Center for Software History. Lewin will officially assume the position on March 7.

Activists are organizing a 24-hour boycott of Apple, Amazon,and FedEx, due to their ties to the NRA, on March 1, according to Business Insider.

FedEx says it will continue its discount program for NRA members. Apple and Amazon have stayed silent about their whether they will remove the NRA's TV channel (NRAtv) from their streaming options.

Launched in 2016, NRAtv includes 22 programs. It’s  available via theApple TV, Amazon Prime, Roku, SiriusXM, iHeartRadio, YouTube, iTunes, and Google Chromecast.

The protest organizers argue that NRAtv and NRA discount programs give money to the gun-rights group and foster gun violence in the U.S., notes Business Insider.

Ring went on Shark Tank, asked for $7 million. No...

LA Times:

Ring doorbells are already being used by 2 million customers. Its improbable success comes five years after its founder, serial entrepreneur Jamie Siminoff, was rejected on the TV show “Shark Tank.”

Rejected isn’t quite right. He got offers, just none that made sense to him.

But the company proved there was demand for video-enabled doorbells, which enable users to see outside their homes via smartphone or computer. The technology provides a sense of security and a salve for one of the most nagging problems in the e-commerce era: package thieves.

There’s a certain irony there. Seems to me, the biggest victim of package thieves is Amazon, who ponys up a replacement when its packages don’t make it into customer hands.

Ring is also an excellent complement to Amazon Key, the program that allows package delivery services access to your house to leave a...

Skiers and snowboarders can now use Apple Watch Series 3 to track their activities via new updates to apps available in the App Store. Watch users can now record runs, see vertical descent and other stats, and contribute active calorie measurements directly to the Apple Watch Activity app.

The updated Slopes app tracks speed, vertical, distance, lift vs. trail time and more with a completely redesigned interface.

Developers are taking advantage of the built-in GPS and altimeter in Apple Watch Series 3 as well as custom workout APIs released in watchOS 4.2 to enable tracking of specialized metrics. App updates for snoww, Slopes, Squaw Alpine, Snocru and Ski Tracks now track new metrics on the slopes including: total vertical descent and horizontal distance; number of runs; average and maximum speeds; total time spent; and calories burned.

Apps can auto pause and resume and users will get credit towards their Activity rings; workout information will also...

Apple patent involves Mac laptops with easily...

So far Apple has made it more and more difficult to upgrade its various devices. However, a newly granted patent (number 9,904,333) involves Macs — especially Mac laptops — with easily replaced solid state drives (SSDs).

The patent, dubbed “SSD related features of a portable computer,” involves a removable assembly for quickly inserting and removing a mass storage device from a compartment situated on the case of a portable computing device. The removable assembly is made of a mass storage device, a bracket which serves as a carrier for the mass storage device, and a metal plate. 

In some embodiments, the mass storage device is a solid state drive (SSD) card. The bracket is a single-piece plastic structure that is deflected for snap insertion into the compartment and snap removal from the compartment. The metal plate conducts heat from the solid state drive (SSD) card to prevent the SSD from overheating.

In the patent filing, Apple notes manufacturers have...

I really like my Apple TV 4K and use it daily. However, when it was sitting on my TV stand, my two-year granddaughter thought it was a toy. Not good. Enter the $29.95 TotalMount Pro, which attaches the Apple set-top box to the back of your television.

It’s also handy for wall-mounted TV owners who have struggled with tunneling an HDMI cable from a television through a wall to an Apple TV.  Running an HDMI cable through a wall is too destructive and time-consuming. TotalMount Pro makes Apple TV installation simple by attaching the Apple TV to the back of the television. 

This installation method positions the Apple set-top box for easy access to the HDMI port on the back of the television. (A power cord is still necessary, but most wall-mounted televisions have a power outlet behind the television.)

How to reset your HomePod

If your HomePod isn’t responding, you should unplug it from its power source, then plug it in again. If that doesn’t work — and ONLY if that doesn’t work — should you reset it to its factory settings. 

However, if you must do this, you can use the Home app to reset the HomePod to its factory settings by following these steps:

  • On your iOS device, open the Home app. Make sure that your iOS device is signed in with the Apple ID that you used to set up your HomePod.
  • In the Home or Rooms tab, press and hold HomePod, then tap Details.
  • Scroll to the bottom and tap Remove Accessory.

If you can’t remove the HomePod from the Home app, you can press the top of HomePod to reset it to its factory settings. Here’s how:

  • Unplug HomePod, then plug it back in.
  • Press and hold the top of HomePod. Make sure that you keep your finger on the top of HomePod the entire time. If you lift your finger, you'll need to start over.

Barclays cites longer wait times for iPhone battery...

If you’re looking to snag a battery for an older iPhone with a degraded battery, you may face a longer time than ever per new data shared by Barclays.

Average wait times for a new battery have jumped up to 2.7 to 4.5 weeks based on a series of Apple Store checks conducted by Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz. This figure is up from around 2.3 to 4.5 weeks earlier in the year.

When a replacement battery repair, stores typically have to order the part through Apple, which makes the processor more complicated than scheduling a Genius Bar appointment. Wait times for the replacement batteries can vary based on location and device model. Batteries for devices like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are harder to come by than batteries for the iPhone 7, and for some devices, like the iPhone 6 Plus, battery wait times have ranged into months.

As of January, Apple stated that batteries for the iPhone 6 Plus, which is no longer being sold, are in short enough supply as to...

T-Mobile also criticized the mobile hotspot pucks offered by some of its competitors, offering the following:

New Apple Patent Imagines an OLED Screen As a...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: The United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted Apple a patent titled "dual display equipment with enhanced visibility and suppressed reflections." The documentation for what is patent number 9,904,502 outlines a device that would use a second display as a dynamic keyboard. Two implementations of this design are described in the patent application, according to Patently Apple. The first utilizes a permanent hinge, while the second allows the screen to be removed and used separately, along the lines of Microsoft's Surface Pro range and other two-in-one computers. The patent documentation makes it clear that the implementation is not intended as an accessory that would allow two iPads to be paired together, with one serving as the keyboard. Additionally, illustrations associated with the application explicitly state that one screen is an OLED display, while the other is an LCD. A double-display set-up could provide easy...

External Link: Apple to Open Medical Clinics for...

Apple will soon begin opening medical clinics for its employees and their families. With the service, called AC Wellness, Apple is moving in the same direction as a new joint project of Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, and J.P. Morgan, which also hopes to use technology to improve patient care and reduce costs. These moves are an indictment of the state of the U.S. healthcare system — the tech companies are saying, “We can do it better and cheaper” — but the question is if the lessons they learn can be applied more broadly.

M. Night Shyamalan to produce a TV series for Apple

According to Variety, Apple has given a straight-to-series order for a psychological thriller written by Tony Basgallop, who has written for a variety of TV shows such as 24:Legacy and Hotel Babylon, and produced by M. Night Shyamalan (pictured), known for movies like Sixth Sense, Signs, Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, The Village, The Visit, and Split.

Plot details for the series are being kept under wraps. The half-hour series has received a 10-episode order, with Shyamalan also set to direct the first episode.

The series will be produced by Shyamalan’s Blinding Edge Pictures with Ashwin Rajan serving as executive producer. Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black and Steve Tisch of Escape Artists will also executive produce, with Taylor Latham co-executive producing.

Wait time for replacement iPhone batteries increases

In a note to clients — as noted by 9to5Mac — Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz says the current wait times for iPhone battery availability have gone up to 3-4.5 weeks after a series of calls to Apple Stores. The longest wait of any Apple Store was found to be 9-10 weeks.

A few weeks ago the average wait time was pegged at 2-4.5 weeks, with a forecast for steady improvements. While the research group was surprised by the increased wait times, Barclays says that, overall, the customer response to the replacement program is on track with its previous estimates. In January, Moskowitz forecasted that about 50 million iPhone users would take advantage of the program out of a total 500 million eligible devices.

In December 2017 Apple published an apology letter to customers in regards to “...

Marketcircle to focus on Daylite and Billings Pro...

Alykhan Jetha (AJ), CEO of Marketcircle:

An important lesson I’ve learned as CEO of Marketcircle is that as a business, it’s critical to evolve or you get left behind. In order for us to stay competitive in our market, to continue innovating, and to provide you with excellent products and services, we have to focus on Cloud. With 87% of our revenue coming from Cloud, it doesn’t make sense to continue working on a platform that splits our resources and is decreasing in demand. If we continue to support both platforms, both will suffer.

The company announced end of life for Daylite Server and Billings Pro Server, but it is a wise decision considering where things are going, and have been going for many years. It just makes no sense to try to keep both products going.

My iPhone X lost a fight with concrete on Sunday morning when I folded up my jogging stroller and forgot the phone in its storage compartment. The smashed iPhone X is on its way to Apple’s repair facility (yes, the one that makes all those 911 calls) and I’m living on an iPhone 6 Plus for the week.

A few observations: the modern haptic engine is light years ahead of the 2014 vibration motor, cameras on newer iPhones have improved dramatically, and older iPhones feel slow in comparison with or without throttling. More on my experience with a throttled iPhone so far below.

One day we may buy AppleCare for our bodies, not...

Apple’s next big thing might not be something you can wear, drive, or even touch. It might be your body itself.

According to a report by CNBC, Apple will be launching a group of health clinics in Santa Clara County called AC Wellness. The initiative will initially be limited to employees and their families when it launches this spring.

Why this matters: Apple has becoming intimately familiar with health care ever since the launch of the Health app on iOS and the Apple Watch, so it’s not at all surprising that it’s entering the field. The question is whether Apple can disrupt health care. Apple isn’t just the most valuable company in the world, it’s also one of the most trusted. While the new clinics will likely be limited to an employee benefit for the foreseeable future, it’s not hard to imagine a world where we’re buying health care...

IDC: iPhone returns to growth in 2017

Coming off of the first year-over-year decline in iPhone shipments in 2016, Apple returned to growth in 2017 albeit only 0.2%, according to IDC. The tech giant shipped 215.8 million iPhones in 2017 with 64% of those coming from “plus-size” smartphones such as the iPhone X. 

IDC says the shift to bigger, more expensive devices has allowed Apple to continue to grow its average sales prices (ASPs) while facing the challenges of growing its shipment volumes. The research group expects iPhone shipments to grow 3.7% to 223.8 million units in 2018 and reaching 242.4 million in 2022. Overall iPhone volumes are expected to grow at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.4%. 

“Apple will continue to experience challenges breaking into some of the remaining high-growth developing markets, but there is no question they are far from being pushed out of the premium market segment,” writes IDC.”Apple continues to build out...

That includes the iPhone X, a model that Forbes has learned was successfully raided for data by the Department for Homeland Security back in November 2017, most likely with Cellebrite technology.

As the Forbes article points out, this prose is on the Cellebrite media datasheet:

Devices supported for Advanced Unlocking and Extraction Services include:
