The new Scan QR Code 3D Touch item in Google's Chrome browser for iPhone

  • A new update to Google's Chrome browser for iPhone has built in the capability to use 3D Touch to scan QR codes
  • Google's YouTube app also received an update that makes control of video streaming to other devices a lot more convenient

Apple hires Spotify’s former vice prez of Content

Apple hired former Steve Savoca, Spotify’s former vice president of Content, last month, an Apple spokesperson told Business Insider. His title at the Cupertino, California-based company is Label Relations.

At Spotify, he served as the global head of label relations, according to a Billboard report from last summer when he left the Swedish streaming giant after five years.

He'll be doing the same thing for Apple that he did for Spotify — heading up label relations based out of New York, focusing on relationships with smaller, independent labels, especially internationally, according to Business Insider.

Savoca has worked in the music industry for over 15 years; before Spotify, he was global head of Digital for Domino...

Notable apps and app updates for Feb. 2, 2017

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

iOS Apps/Updates

Ubisoft has launched City of Love: Paris. In this free, interactive drama, players are given control to choose their adventures and romantic storyline set within the chic city of Paris. Set in the streets of Paris and surrounded by iconic locations, players will be immersed in the “Art de Vivre,” the art of living French style. The settings of the game were selected with the help of Anne Seibel, the Oscar-nominated Artistic Director of “Midnight in Paris” by Woody Allen (2011). Players will go on an adventure with “unique interactions, stunning discoveries and unexpected twists.”

Feature Request: Apple should roll its own VPN into...

When Apple released iOS 10 last September, they pushed in a small change when connecting to wireless networks. Tucked away under the Wi-Fi settings, iOS now warns users when connecting to insecure networks that it exposes a user’s network traffic. The easy answer to this is to simply not connect to public wireless networks, but that’s something that most people will just ignore. If users won’t stop connecting to insecure public networks, they could at least start using VPNs and Apple could make it easy to do that.

Apple has just patented an Apple Watch battery band

Here’s further evidence that Apple wants to develop “smart bands” for Apple Watch.

According to a recently published patent, Apple has developed a way for Apple Watch bands to incorporate a wearable battery that could charge the device on the go. These batteries could be partially embedded within a band or attach to an existing band, and they’d rely on the Apple Watch’s inductive charging technology to transfer power.

Based on the images included in the patent application, a battery band can be made of flexible material to better accomodate a design that wraps around underneath the band. It also has a charging plate, similar to the Magnetic Charging Puck but way slimmer, that can rest on the belly of the watch to charge it on contact. The charging plate comes with magnets to help align the inductive coils, as well as perforations or...

“Our nation’s compassion is a part of what makes it exceptional, and we are committed to helping your administration identify approaches for thorough screening without a blanket suspension of admissions under the U.S. Refugee Admissions program,” the letter reads. “While security and vetting procedures can and should always be subject to continuous evaluation and improvement, a blanket suspension is not the right approach.”

Cook will accept the award during a special event to be held at the Newseum on April 18, 2017. The 2017 Free Expression Awards are presented in five categories. Honorees have “taken personal or professional risks in sharing critical information with the public, have been censored or punished by authorities or other groups for their work, or have pushed boundaries in artistic and media expression.”

iPhone U.S. installed base has reached 132 million

Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), has released its analysis of the results from its research on Apple for the fiscal quarter that ended Dec. 31, 2016. The research group found that the iPhone U.S. installed base reached 132 million units as of the end of 2016.

Within the installed base, the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus comprise 25 million units, or 19% of the total. The two year-old iPhone 6 and 6 Plus comprise 51 million units, or 38% of the total installed base.

“iPhone 7 and 7 Plus penetrated the U.S. market slightly stronger, at 19% of the installed base, than the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus did a year ago, but not nearly at the level the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus did two years ago,” says Josh Lowitz, CIRP partner and co-founder. “At this time last year, the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus accounted for about 17% of the US installed based of iPhones, compared to an incredible 30% for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in December 2014...

Users of Microsoft's Outlook app for iPhone and iPad can now get work done quicker using third-party integrations.

At launch, the app supports add-ins from Evernote, GIPHY, Nimble, Trello and Smartsheet, in addition to those that Microsoft has created.

For example, users will be able to translate emails using a Microsoft Translator add-in, add cards to a Trello board straight from their email and quickly reply to an email thread with a funny animated GIF.

Facebook Aims to Carve Out a Spot in the Living Room


Facebook is working on a video app for set-top boxes, according to a Wednesday report. The social network wants to deliver longer-form video content -- and with it video ads -- to the living room TV, the one screen it has been unable to reach. The Facebook app soon could be available on a variety of set-top boxes, including Apple TV. The initiative reportedly began in earnest last summer, after incubating for years as a concept. News of this effort follows Facebook's recent announcement that it was refining its News Feed to favor longer-form videos, which can include mid-roll ad breaks.

My LG UltraFine Display 5K isn’t affected by...

In writing for 9to5Mac, Zac Hall reported that his LG UltraFine Display 5K became unusable if located near a router. Though I don’t doubt Zac’s results, mine have been totally different. 

Zac found that the UltraFine 5K Display, which Apple touts as a great monitor for use with the latest MacBook Pros, became unusable when positioned within 6.6-feet of a router (in his case, the latest Apple AirPort Extreme). He then found this note on a review for the LG display on Apple’s website:

Zac says that, since moving the router to another room, his UltraFine 5K Display has remained connected without issue.

However, I’ve been using an UltraFine 5K Display for weeks with it located less than two feet from an eero router. Does the monitor work properly near some routers and not others? Do some of the displays have the issue, but not others? Is this a problem with the 4K display? Whatever the problem, just be warned...

External Link: Apple Working on ARM-Based Power Nap...

Mark Gurman and Ian King have reported in Bloomberg that Apple is working on a new ARM-based chip for future Macs that would manage Power Nap functionality. Power Nap enables recent Macs to perform certain tasks even while asleep, such as checking for new email messages, syncing iCloud data, and updating software, and the rumored new chip would reduce Power Nap’s already low energy usage. This story has fueled speculation that Apple will dump Intel CPUs for ARM-based processors like those it makes for its many non-Mac devices. However, nothing in this news indicates such a major shift yet — this chip would merely supplement the core Intel processor’s capabilities, much like the ARM chip that controls the Touch Bar in the 2016 MacBook Pro.

The fees come into play if you continue to use the Roku in addition to your Comcast set-top box after the beta trial wraps. At that point, Comcast will treat the Roku device like any other “additional outlet.” That additional outlet incurs a $9.95 fee, minus the bring-your-own-device credit of $2.50 for using a Roku, instead of Comcast’s box. This is also how a secondary outlet that connects to Comcast’s network via a TiVo would be charged and credited.

Basically business as usual.

The latest iPhone ownership data from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners shows the size of the challenge facing Apple in making the iPhone 8 a success.

Its research indicates that well over half of all iPhone owners have the iPhone 6 or later.

Within the installed base, the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus comprise 25 million units, or 19% of the total. The two year-old iPhone 6 and 6 Plus comprise 51 million units, or 38% of the total installed base.

While that’s an impressive past achievement for Apple, with its record holiday season sales a major contributor, it does mean the company is facing a tougher challenge this year …

The truth behind the MacBook Pro’s ‘terrible’...

Gordon Mah Ung, Macworld, gets to the bottom of the MacBook Pro’s disparate battery tests. Most testers got great battery life, others found it to be terrible. Why? Turns out, it’s a bug:

In looking at other battery run-down scenarios, I ran smack into a problem that’s likely at fault for many of the confusing battery life issues with the laptop, at least in macOS Sierra 10.12.2. On occasion, the laptop’s discrete GPU would just get stuck on and consume power even when it wasn’t used. Others had reported this too, but you’d really have to stumble onto it.

I was able to reproduce the issue in Safari by opening Google Maps, which would cause the laptop to switch over to the GPU for the WebGL workload. Opening additional browser tabs and then closing the Google Maps tab would, on occasion, leave the GPU consuming up to 10 watts of power while doing absolutely nothing.

Terrific job homing in on this. Nothing helps tech support more than a problem they can reliably...

Davis Brand Capital, a market intelligence and customer insight firm, has released the eighth annual Davis Brand Capital 25 ranking, a global study of overall brand performance evaluating companies' abilities to successfully manage brand value, competitive performance, innovation strength, company culture and social impact. Apple dropped from the top spot to the runner-up spot.

The 2016 Davis Brand Capital 25 ranked companies again beat all public market indexes. A hypothetical stock portfolio of Davis Brand Capital 25 companies would have returned 17.4% in 2016, beating the Dow by 2.2 percentage points, the S&P 500 by 6.2 percentage points and the NASDAQ by 7.6 percentage points.

After five years atop the list, Apple (#2) lost its number one spot to Alphabet (#1), due in part to Google's increasing dominance and Apple's "slowing sales," according to Brand Davis (though, based on Apple's latest financials...

Mark Gurman and Ian King, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. is designing a new chip for future Mac laptops that would take on more of the functionality currently handled by Intel Corp. processors, according to people familiar with the matter.

The chip, which went into development last year, is similar to one already used in the latest MacBook Pro to power the keyboard’s Touch Bar feature, the people said. The updated part, internally codenamed T310, would handle some of the computer’s low-power mode functionality, they said. The people asked not to be identified talking about private product development. It’s built using ARM Holdings Plc. technology and will work alongside an Intel processor.

According to the patent filing, a wearable power apparatus for a wearable electronic device includes one or more conductors, one or more batteries connected to the conductor, and/or an inductive coil that attaches to the wearable electronic device to inductively transmit power from the battery to the wearable electronic device, such as while the wearable electronic device is worn. 

The power apparatus may have attachment mechanisms that attach to a band coupled to the wearable electronic device. Alternatively or additionally, the power apparatus may be at least partially embedded within the band. The inductive coil may also receive power for the battery from another inductive coil. The battery may...

Strategy Analytics: Apple sold 5.2 million...

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global smartwatch shipments grew 1% annually to hit a record 8.2 million units in the fourth quarter of 2016. Apple Watch drove growth and dominated with 63% global smartwatch marketshare, while Samsung maintained second position.

The fourth quarter marked a return to growth for the smartwatch industry after two consecutive quarters of declining volumes. Smartwatch growth is recovering slightly due to new product launches from giant Apple and stronger seasonal demand in major developed markets like the US and UK, according to Strategy Analytics. Global smartwatch shipments grew annually from 20.8 million in full-year 2015 to a record 21.1 million in 2016, adds the research group.

“We estimate Apple shipped a record 5.2...

Apple, others pen letter opposing Trump’s travel ban

Apple, Alphabet, Facebook, Uber, Stripe and other companies have teamed up to pen a letter opposing U.S. President Trump’s travel ban that suspends travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, according to re/code. Here’s a draft of the letter:

“Dear President Trump,

“Since the country’s birth, America has been the land of opportunity – welcoming newcomers and giving them the chance to build families, careers, and businesses in the United States. We are a nation made stronger by immigrants. As entrepreneurs and business leaders, our ability to grow our companies and create jobs depends on the contributions of immigrants from all backgrounds.

With multi-day battery life on the wish-list of many Apple Watch owners, it’s not surprising that Apple is at least considering making a battery band available which could potentially allow the wearable to go many days between charges. This would be of particular value to those who want to use the Watch for sleep-tracking in addition to its usual duties during the day.

The company was recently granted a patent for a multi-function band that could include power, and AI has spotted a new...

Rumor: Apple to incorporate next-gen ARM-based...

This is pretty nifty.

Apple is apparently developing an ARM-based chip for its Mac products that would “take on more of the functionality” handled by Intel processors.

In development since last year, the chip, codenamed T310, is said to be similar to the chip used to power the Touch Bar in the new 2016 Macbook Pro. It’s built using ARM technology and will work with the standard Intel processor, handling “Power Nap” low-power mode functionality.

The processors are intended to offload the Mac’s low-power mode, entitled “Power Nap”, to the ARM-based chip. This function currently allows Apple’s notebooks to retrieve e-mails, install software updates, and synchronize calendar appointments with the display shut and not in use. The feature currently uses little battery life while run on the Intel chip, but the move to ARM would conserve even more power, according to one of the sources.

As of now, the 2016 MacBook Pro uses an independent ARM-based chip...

Rumor: Prince’s catalog may be en route to Apple...

Prince may be coming to both Apple Music and Spotify.

The legendary musician, who spent a fair amount of his career fighting for artist rights and equal royalties, famously pulled his music from all streaming services but Tidal, the artist-owned, Jay Z-led app for audiophiles. But now it seems Prince’s hits are finally set to stream everywhere else, from Apple Music and Spotify to Google Play and Pandora.

The story hails from an anonymous source and according to the New York Post, Prince’s Warner Music Group records will hit streaming services outside of Tidal on Feb. 12, the night of the Grammys. This is also the evening that the award show’s organizers are expected to honor Prince with a musical tribute that night.

Such a change comes with some fanfare and signaling ahead of it, as Spotify has recently aken out purple subway ads in New York City. The ads make no reference to Prince, but his signature color was sign enough for die-hard fans, who instantly...

Dubbed "5.3 Fresh," this latest release takes the development of LibreOffice in a new direction with a focus on updating the user experience, according to Italo Vignoli of the Document Foundation. The 3.x Family centered on code cleanup, while the 4.x Family focused on code Refactoring. LibreOffice 5.3 extends the UI with an experimental Notebookbar.

How to make Facebook and Twitter more pleasant in...

In a time of political turmoil and polarization, you may want to keep friends, family, and colleagues with whom you have fundamental disagreements from seeing some of your routine social media postings, wherever they occur.

Some argue that compartmentalizing what you see and what you let others see increases polarization and an echochamber effect. They worry or insist that it will further distance people’s points of view and make it less likely for some kind of grand reconciliation.

Others try to use the language of healing and security against people, accusing them of maintaining “safe spaces,” being too easily “triggered,” and acting like a “snowflake”—easily melted when exposed to challenging ideas.

Shell cases are great for keeping the exterior of your MacBook Pro scratch-free. Beside preserving your laptop’s life, it also improves resale value down the road (who wants a dinged-up laptop?). Moshi’s iGlaze Pro 15 is, as far as I know, the first shell for the new MacBook Pros with Touch Bar.

The hardshell case is thin and lightweight, yet durable. Its micro-clip design makes it easy to snap on and snap off. iGlaze Pro 15 is surface-treated with a specialized coating that offers scratch resistance while accentuating the laptop’s elegant design thanks to its transparency. Not surprisingly, it’s compatible with Moshi's other accessories for the 2016 MacBook Pros such as the iVisor Pro 15 and the...

How to use the iPhone Photo app to quickly mark up...

When sharing photos with others, I often like to put a box or circle around something I want to point out. Sometimes I like to include an arrow highlighting a feature in a photo.

The stock Photos app in iOS has a great tool for drawing perfect geometric figures on your photos. With Photos I can draw a shape freehand and use it. If you are like me, the shapes I draw upon the screen are not very attractive. The software can determine what shape I was trying to draw and, at the lower part of the screen, offer two options: my original shape or what the photo app thinks I was trying to draw.

You can access the markup options by tapping on the three lines with circles located at the bottom of the photo. Ten tap on the circle with the three dots. Choose “Markup.”

At the bottom you have options for color selection. Below that you have four options: drawing a shape, lens magnification, overlaying text, and undo. In this brief tutorial I’ll focus only upon drawing a...

Apple Developing Custom ARM-Based Mac Chip That...

According to Bloomberg, Apple is designing a new chip for future Mac laptops that would take on more of the functionality currently handled by Intel processors. The chip is a variant of the T1 SoC Apple used in the latest MacBook Pro to power the keyboard's Touch Bar feature. The updated part, internally codenamed T310, is built using ARM technology and would reportedly handle some of the computer's low-power mode functionality. From the report: The development of a more advanced Apple-designed chipset for use within Mac laptops is another step in the company's long-term exploration of becoming independent of Intel for its Mac processors. Apple has used its own A-Series processors inside iPhones and iPads since 2010, and its chip business has become one of the Cupertino, California-based company's most critical long-term investments. Apple engineers are planning to offload the Mac's low-power mode, a feature marketed as "Power Nap," to the next-generation ARM-based chip. This...
