‘Spoken Editions’ of podcasts now available at iTunes

Podcasts branded “Spoken Editions,” short-form programs that offer listeners an audio version of the publisher’s written content, are down available at iTunes. They allow you to “read” your favorite website or hear the news when you’re doing other things.

Spoken Editions of WIRED News, TIME, Bustle News, Slate, and more are available. TechCrunch says that, apparently, many of the publishers' Spoken Edition podcasts were created by SpokenLayer, a company that creates streaming audio and podcasts for media brands using text.

Comment: I’ve grown to love the new Home button on...

A change to the iPhone’s Home button was long-rumored, but when Phil Schiller confirmed the existence of the iPhone 7’s solid state Home button, that’s when you knew it was for real.

The iPhone 7 isn’t Apple’s first foray into this area, as the MacBook line has taken a similar approach with its trackpad. But the iPhone is way more popular than the Mac and more people own and use iPhones when compared to the Mac.

It’s common knowledge that the majority of Apple’s profits are generated by the iPhone, so a fundamental change to the device’s primary hardware input method wasn’t something for Apple hardware engineers to take lightly.

The good news is that, despite initial criticism, the iPhone 7 Home button is actually quite good once you get used to it. While it does have a few downsides, the change has produced several new positive side effects as well....

IDrive online backups: Sign up with AWT and save 75...

It's always a good time to think about your backup plans...before you need to do a restore. At Apple World Today, we're big fans of three-level backup redundancy. First, most of us use Time Machine for our primary local backup. There's a second app -- Carbon Copy Cloner -- that's used to produce a second, separate local backup that's bootable. And finally, we use online backups to insure that a physical disaster like a fire or flood won't ruin our day. IDrive is one of the best online backup firms out there, and if you sign up using this Apple World Today link, you get your first year of 1TB of online storage for 75% off -- that's just $14.88.

Having suffered through a hard drive loss in 1999 was bad enough, but my files and backup needs are much more critical now. That's why I entrust my online backup to IDrive and you should to...

Apple is on track to release new iPads next year, which isn’t a big surprise. What is intriguing, however, is the rumored sizing of those new iPads: a 10.1-inch iPad Pro to replace the 9.7-inch model, and a 7.9-inch version to phase out the iPad mini 4.

The current iPad Pro lineup features a 12.9-inch model and a 9.7-inch version, but early next year that lineup could expand to three. The new iPad report comes from Japanese blog Makotakara, but echoes earlier rumors from KGI Securities. The smaller 7.9-inch...

Do Not Disturb enhanced in iOS 10 - How to enable...

iOS has included a Do Not Disturb feature for a long time. With this option enabled, any contact you have designated as a “favorite” causes your iPhone to ring while other calls are silenced and sent to your voicemail.

One Do Not Disturb feature I have often wanted is for text messages from favorites to make a sound when Do Not Disturb is enabled. Apple delivered this option with Emergency Bypass in iOS 10, which must be set up manually for each contact you want to be alerted to. To do this:

    •    Launch Contacts and select the contact you want alerts from
    •    Tap Edit
    •    Select Text Tone
    •    Scroll to the top of the Text Tone screen and enable Emergency Bypass
    •    Press Done

When these steps are completed, the Contact card displays the text tone you have chosen for that contact and shows that Emergency Bypass is enabled. Emergency Bypass can also be enabled for a contact’s ringtone by selecting “Ring Tone” while...

Apple To Make macOS Sierra Available As Automatic...

Remember how Microsoft was pushing Windows 10 updates to your computers? That surely made a lot of people furious. Today, Apple told The Loop that it will also begin automatic download of its latest desktop operating system update, macOS Sierra on Macs that are compatible with the new software -- provided, automatic downloads are switched on and the Mac has enough storage space. From the report: t's important to note that this is not an automatic installer -- this process will only download the update in the background, and then alert you that it is available to install. You can choose to install it when its convenient. You can also choose to ignore the update. [...] Of course, you can manually delete the download if you don't wish to upgrade, and you can choose to manually download the update from the App Store at any time.

The iPhone 7/7 Plus is already more popular than the iPhone SE, and is close to overtaking the iPhone 4 and 4s lineup, according to a new report from Localytics as noted by AppleInsider.

The research group places the iPhone 7/7 Plus at a 3.6% of all Apple handsets in use. That's enough to put it ahead of the iPhone SE, which was tracked at 2.6%. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s collectively account for 3.7% of iPhones in use. The iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s still account for an estimated 24.4% of active Apple smartphones. 

The iPhone 6s accounts for 27.5%. Apple's leader remains the iPhone 6, which Localytics says represents 38.3% of all iPhones in active use.

Your Mac can automatically download, but not launch...

Nobody likes waiting. That’s why I bet if you pop open the Mac App Store pane in System Preferences, I bet you have the box checked to “Download newly available updates in the background.”

Now, if you have that box checked, your Mac will download not just app updates and incremental OS updates, but major updates too, starting with the installer of macOS Sierra. This new behavior is rolling out over the next week to users of El Capitan versions 10.11.5 and 10.11.6.

Don’t worry. The Sierra installer isn’t going to just launch and update your Mac without intervention from you. You’ll get a notification from the App Store that it’s ready, just like you always have, but if you click that notification, you won’t have to wait for the installer to download. It’ll just launch and guide you through the process.

Analyst: Apple Watch sales in 2016 will be less than...

In a note to clients — as noted by Business Insider — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple could sell fewer Apple Watches in 2016 than it did in 2015. His projection for 2016 Apple Watch shipments have been cut 15-25%.

"Based on these considerations, we revise down our 2016F shipments projection for the entire Apple Watch line from 10.0-10.5mn units to 8.5-9.0mn units (vs. 10.4mn units in 2015)," writes Kuo. "We now predict 2016F Apple Watch sales will decline from 2015 (with shorter selling time of eight months).”

He says the four main problems affecting Apple Watch sales are: a lack of killer apps; inadequate battery life; heavy reliance on an iPhone; and the likelihood that multi-touch will not be the best user interface solution for wearable devices.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has a hunch about the future of augmented reality, and whether it will ever become mainstream.

This weekend, Cook said that it will take some time for AR to become “acceptable.” But once that happens, AR experiences will be an integral part of our daily lives, comparing the emerging technology to the iPhone and eating three meals a day.

“I do think that a significant portion of the population of developed countries, and eventually all countries, will have AR experiences every day, almost like eating three meals a day. It will become that much a part of you,” Cook said during his panel at a tech conference in Utah. Cook then admitted that there are technical challenges preventing AR from becoming a reality.

The Lack of Strategic Thinking in Election 2016

One of the problems facing the technology industry right now is the critical lack of strategic thinking. Hedge fund managers and activist investors increasingly are forcing tactical decisions that raise stock prices over the short term, largely by destroying the firm's long-term viability. What makes this trend particularly problematic is that most top executives don't seem to understand they are destroying their companies until it's too late. Joe Tucci's and Michael Dell's recent partnership was a massive effort to remove that threat.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has once again defended his company's hardline approach to security. At Utah Tech Tour event while taking questions from the audience, Cook said, (via BusinessInsider):"This is one of the biggest issues that we face. Encryption is what makes the public safe. As you know, there are people kept alive because the grid is up. If our grid goes down, if there was a grid attack, the public's safety is at risk" -- hence the need for encryption to protect it. "You can imagine defence systems need encryption, because there are a few bad actors in the world who might like to attack those. [...] Some people have tried to make it out to be bad," the chief executive told the audience at the Utah question-and-answer session. "Encryption is inherently great, and we would not be a safe society without it. So this is an area that is very, very important for us... as you can tell from our actions earlier this year, we throw all of ourselves into this." he added. "We're very much...

The iPhone 7 finishes last in flawed Which battery...

Blog “Which? Tech Daily” ran the HTC 10, LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7, and the Apple iPhone 7 through a series of battery tests.

The most notable difference:

Whilst the iPhone 7’s 712 minutes of call time (nearly 12 hours) may sound acceptable, the rival Samsung Galaxy S7 lasted twice as long – and it doesn’t even have the longest lasting battery. The HTC 10 lasted an incredible 1,859 minutes (that’s almost 31 hours).


So just why does the iPhone 7 have such a poor battery life? It may sound obvious, but the majority of the fault lies in its comparatively tiny cell. Smartphone batteries are measured in milliampere hours (mAh). The iPhone 7 has a 1,960mAh battery, whilst the HTC 10 has a 3,000mAh battery: it should hardly be surprising that one battery nearly half the size of another offers roughly half as much charge.

So was this a fair test? Is call time a fair measure of battery life? In browsing/email testing, the battery life was much closer,...

Denmark: Apple’s enters into an ‘ambitious agreement...

Apple has followed up on its promise last year to build a data center in Denmark with an “ambitious agreement” with the University of Aarhus (pictured) on a new biogas research and development partnership, according to CPH Post Online. Foulum is a small town outside of Viborg where Aarhus University’s agricultural research facilities are located.

Biogas typically refers to a mixture of different gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Biogas can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or food waste. Biogas is a renewable energy source and in many cases exerts a very small carbon footprint.

CPH Post Online says that, under the terms of the agreement, Apple will provide financial support to the university’s research into biogas and how usable...

If you like to keep a local music library, this is a problem you will likely face when you upgrade to a new iPhone even if you restore from an encrypted backup using iTunes, which is considered the most efficient method. There are a few ways to work around this issue using iTunes. I’ll share my method below …

Rumor (and my take on it): Apple will ship four...

Apple will ship four iPad Pro models next spring, including 7.9-inch, 9.7-inch, and 10.1-inch, and 12.9-inch models, according to Japanese blog Mac Otakara — as noted by MacRumors. I think the report/rumor is only partially correct.

The 12.9-inch model will reportedly feature the True Tone display introduced with its 9.7-inch counterpart, using advanced four-channel ambient light sensors to automatically adapt the color and intensity of the display to match the light in the surrounding environment. The super-sized iPad will also gain the 9.7-inch model's same 12-megapixel rear-facing iSight camera and True Tone flash, according to Mac Otakara.

The smaller 7.9-inch model, which will succeed the iPad mini 4, will reportedly include a Smart Connector, True Tone display, four...

iPhone 7 to launch in wider array of international...

The iPhone 7 is about to hit the road with a wide international debut over the next 10 days.

Following an October 7th debut in India, the handset will be available in Turkey, Malaysia, and South Africa, as well as smaller markets like Macao, Macedonia, and Montenegro and possibly other regions on October 14th.

A South Korean launch is “tentatively” set for Oct. 21st as well. The target was allegedly arrived at in talks between Apple Korea and three phone carriers on Thursday, but still has to be approved by Apple’s Cupertino headquarters.

A source with one of the carriers claimed that Oct. 14 was considered as a date, but ultimately rejected.

Apple first launched the iPhone 7 in nearly 30 markets on September 16th. On Sept. 23 it brought the...

New drone video footage over the past few weeks has shows the appearance of lights on the outside of the ring-shaped building, along with fewer construction cranes, suggesting the near-completion of the campus as work shifts from architectural to electrical and the surrounding landscape features.

Over in the center of the campus, work seems to have begun on a large water feature. The change accompanies some pond, boulder and greenery installations that have also taken place.

The video shows off the progress of the underground auditorium, which Apple plans to use for future product and service reveals, as well as the beginnings of one of seven campus...

NetMarketShare: macOS and iOS are both down in...

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for macOS and iOS both dipped in September. 

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, Mac OS X had 6.92% of the global market share in September down from 7.37% percent in August (that’s global market share; in the US it’s over 13%). April 2016’s 9.2% was an all-time high, according to NetMarketShare’s measurements. Windows remains dominant with 90.85% as of September.

iOS had 27.02% of the mobile operating system market share in September, down from 27.20% in August. This compares to 69.187% for Android, 2.35% for Windows Phone, and 1.43% for Java ME. The all-time high for iOS was in July 2012 with 65.94%.

NetMarketShares’ monthly surveys don’t measure market share in terms of computer systems sold. Instead they sample data from visitors to some 40,000 web sites operated by their clients. And note that...

Second report of 10-inch iPad Pro, along with new...

A KGI report in August said that Apple was planning to launch three new iPads in 2017, and suggested that the 9.7-inch model would grow in size slightly to 10.5-inches. A Macotakara piece today also suggests three new iPad Pro models are coming up in the spring of next year, with some details overlapping the KGI report and others differing.

Makotakara supports the idea of a slightly larger standard-sized iPad Pro, though it suggests the diagonal screen size will be 10.1 rather than 10.5 inches. The larger screen size will be achieved by making the external dimensions 1cm longer and 0.5cm wide, it says …

Screen Shine cleans up those nasty iPhone, iPad and...

Studies conducted by BuzzFeed and many other outlets say that smartphone and tablet screens are dirtier than most toilet seats. Yikes! As my three-old-nice Adalyn might say: “Dat’s nasty.”

Your phone “touches” everything your hands touch. You wash your hands (don’t you?), so why not “wash” your iPhone and iPad? WHOOSH! Screen Shine is a solution — combining a non-toxic (no ammonia or alcohol) liquid and an antimicrobial cloth —  that not only rids your phone or tablet screen of bacteria, smudges and dirt, but also leaves behind a nano-film that repels dust and fingerprints. Pricing starts at $15 for a “starter kit.”

Using a wet paper towel or Windex are the methods most folks use to clean their iPhone or iPad screens. However, water doesn't get rid of germs and some leading cleaners can damage your screen. I apply WHOOSH! Screen Shine to my iPhone, iPad, iMac, and MacBook every couple of days and it...

Patent trollin’: Apple ordered to pay VirnetX $302...

A jury in Tyler, Texas ruled Friday that Apple infringed on two of VirnetX's patents related to its FaceTime calling feature, ordering Apple to pay $302.4 million.

The amount matches what VirnetX argued it was entitled to during opening arguments on Sept. 26. Apple countered that VirnetX deserved no more than $25 million. The case will now go to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington DC.

In January 2014, VirnetX, considered by many (including me) to be a “patent troll,”  filed a motion with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas seeking to supplement its infringement contentions against Apple, the defendant in a patent infringement lawsuit. And in May 2016 the company asked a Texas court to order Apple to stop providing its FaceTime and Messages features to customers, following the patent troll’s early...

iPhone 7 Finishes Last In New Test of Battery Life

"Pitted against the Samsung Galaxy S7, HTC 10 and LG G5, Apple's latest handset came in last place... and by some distance," reports BetaNews. Here's the results of a new test from the U.K. consumer advocacy group, Which?:

We compared the iPhone 7's battery life, when making calls and browsing the web, to those of three top Android competitors: the Samsung Galaxy S7, HTC 10 and LG G5, and the results were staggering. While the iPhone 7's 712 minutes of call time (nearly 12 hours) may sound acceptable, the rival Samsung Galaxy S7 lasted twice as long -- and it doesn't even have the longest lasting battery. The HTC 10 lasted an incredible 1,859 minutes (that's almost 31 hours).

When it comes to internet browsing time, arguably the more important measurement, the results were a lot closer...but the iPhone 7 still came bottom. The 615 minutes of battery life offered by the iPhone 7 is 25 minutes less than its nearest rival, the LG G5, and 175 minutes less than the top...

Apple Loses Patent Retrial To VirnetX, Owes $302.4...

Slashdot reader chasm22 quotes Reuters:

A federal jury in Texas on Friday night ordered Apple Inc to pay more than $302 million in damages for using VirnetX Holding Corp's patented internet security technology without permission in features including its FaceTime video conferencing application. The verdict came in a new trial in Tyler, Texas that had been ordered by the judge in the case, Robert Schroeder, who last August threw out VirnetX's $625.6 million win over Apple from a previous trial because he said jurors in that case may have been confused...

A jury in 2012 awarded $368.2 million in damages, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., partly overturned that verdict, saying there were problems with how the trial judge instructed jurors on calculating damages.
On remand, VirnetX's two suits were combined, and in February, a jury returned with an even bigger verdict, $625.6 million, one of the highest ever in a U.S. patent...
