Is Apple’s pre-announcement for new Mac Pros enough...

In a very uncharacteristic move for Apple, the company today decided to address recent concerns among its pro market and pre-announce an all-new, rethought Mac Pro in the cards for next year. Less exciting is the spec bumps that make the current lineup more affordable in the meantime, and the company also added in confirmation that new iMac models are coming later this year. But is Apple’s pre-announcement for new Mac Pros enough to address pro concerns?

Apple to refund recent Workflow purchases after...

If you snagged the popular iOS automation app Workflow juuuuust before Apple bought it and then made it a free service, don’t worry: Apple is gonna give you that $2.99 back. Plus tax.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple is emailing iTunes customers who recently purchased Workflow to let them know that the app is now free and that refunds are imminent.

It’s unclear exactly what the purchase window is for refunds, although 9to5Mac reported one Twitter user had bought his version “some weeks ago.”

When Apple confirmed the acquisition to TechCrunch in late March, a company spokesperson said Workflow would remain in the App Store as a free app, but didn’t say whether Workflow’s technology would be built into iOS. That would make sense, given that Apple is pitching the iPad...

Apple Music for Android updated

Like the iOS version, Apple Music for Android features a bolder, cleaner look with reorganized sections: “Library,” “For You,” “Browse,” and “Radio.” Also included are iOS 10 features like song lyrics and a revamped For You recommendation section, plus with the redesign, there’s more of a focus on album art.

I could say something sarcastic like “I wonder if Android gets the iTunes Match feature that doesn’t work, or is that an iOS-only feature.”

But I won’t.

Apple fixes wireless-based remote code execution...

Apple released an iOS update Monday to fix a serious vulnerability that could allow attackers to remotely execute malicious code on the Broadcom Wi-Fi chips used in iPhones, iPads, and iPods.

The vulnerability is a stack buffer overflow in the feature that handles authentication responses for the fast BSS transition feature of the 802.11r protocol, also known as fast roaming. This feature allows devices to move easily and securely between different wireless base stations in the same domain.

Hackers can exploit the flaw to execute code in the context of the Wi-Fi chip's firmware if they're within the wireless range of the targeted devices.

The issue is one of several flaws found by Google Project Zero researcher Gal Beniamini in the firmware of Broadcom Wi-Fi chips. Some of these vulnerabilities also affect Android devices and have been patched...

Hopefully, the company has learned that it’s okay to admit that you made a mistake (ie, the 2013 Mac Pro and cancelation of the Thunderbolt Display). Concerning the latter, it’s obvious that the promotion of the LG UltraFine displays as suitable replacements...

New singles released will continue to be available for free users. The exclusivity to paid subscribers, the report notes, will only be for the first two weeks and will be up to the artists:

How to choose the best VPN service for iPhone and...

In light of the latest news that President Trump has overturned the FCC Internet privacy rules, discussions for and against virtual private networks (VPNs) have resurfaced. One of the biggest complaints with the repeal is that internet service providers are now legally allowed to sell your browsing data, if they’d like. While some ISPs have said that they won’t sell your browsing history for now, that doesn’t bar them from doing so in the future.

Proponents of VPNs believe that by utilizing such a service, you can obfuscate your browsing history so that your ISP won’t be able to build a “catalog” of your browsing habits. Opponents to VPNs dutifully note that by using a VPN service all you’re doing is migrating your browsing history from one ISP’s eyes to...

Opinion: Apple’s rare change of mind is great news...

Apple is famously one of the most secretive companies in the world. It believes in what Steve Jobs called the ‘magic’ of the surprise reveal. The ‘one more thing’ presentation style pioneered by Steve is so much a part of Apple’s DNA that it has a stock phrase it uses to answer questions about its product plans: ‘We do not comment on future products.’

It’s hard to imagine Apple would ever take a different approach. Today it did.

It not only revealed future product plans a year in advance – something so out of character it’s hard to believe it really happened – but it also did something else Apple almost never does: it admitted to a mistake.

Sure, none of the three Apple execs present ever used that word, but the mea culpa is clear …

No three words will stop a Mac user in their tracks faster than these: Mac Pro update. It’s been more than three years since Apple last paid any attention to its desktop tower, and users have been anxiously awaiting an upgrade. However, while Apple indeed announced a refresh Tuesday morning, the real news is about what’s coming down the road.

First, the new specs: Apple is still offering two base models of Mac Pro at $2,999 and $3,999. The lower-end model jumps from from a quad-core Xeon CPU to a 6-core one, and gets dual G500 GPUs (an upgrade over the G300 GPUs), while the step-up model gets an 8-core CPU (up from 6) and dual D700 GPUs (up from the D500). That’s it. There’s no USB-C and no Thunderbolt 3, which means it still won’t be able to run the...

The Mac Pro Is Getting a Major Do-Over

Apple is moving away from the current, cylinder-shaped design used on its Mac Pro desktop, but that replacement will take until next year to hit shelves. From a report: "The Mac Pro, the current vintage that we introduced, we wanted to do something bold and different. In retrospect, it didn't well suit some of the people we wanted to reach," admitted Apple SVP Craig Federighi. "So many of our customers were moving to iMac that we saw a path to address to many, many more of those people," he added. "With the current generation Mac Pro, which some customers love, others may not, one of the things that's certainly clear and true about that is the team tried to do something different, something bold and we always want to encourage the Mac team that whatever products you make, that make customers happy, that we do bold work. Because the Mac's always been about that. It's been about not being conventional thinking, not me-too-stuff," said Phil Schiller. [...] While we'll have to wait...

Tapping the rocket-ship icon shows a news feed made up of popular articles, videos, and other posts from Facebook Pages. These are items Facebook believes will interest you, based on a number of criteria including similarity to other content you've liked, and a post's popularity among your friends.

From a report: "We have big plans for the iMac," Phil Schiller, Apple's SVP of worldwide marketing, said during a recent reporter roundtable at the company's Machine Shop hardware prototyping lab. "We're going to begin making configurations of iMac specifically with the pro customer in mind." Just what those configurations will entail, Apple won't yet say. Nor will it comment on the possibility of an iMac Pro moniker for the more powerful machines in the lineup. Company executives are, however, quite happy to confirm a feature the pro iMac will not have: touchscreen. "No," Schiller said when asked if Apple would consider building such a thing. "Touch doesn't even register on the list of things pro users are interested in talking about. They're interested in things like performance and storage and expandability."

New iMacs likely to have Magic Keyboards with Touch...

Now that Apple has confirmed to Daring Fireball that new iMacs are coming this year, recent patent applications show that we can probably expect a Magic Keyboard with a Touch Bar on such all-in-ones — or at least offered as an option. 

Patents 20170090596, 20170090597 and 20170090654 are for a “keyboard with adaptive input row.” Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “The adaptive input row may be positioned within an opening of a device and include a cover for receiving a touch and a display that is configured to present an adaptable set of indicia. The adaptive input row may also include one or more sensors for detecting the location of a touch and/or the magnitude of a force of the touch. The adaptive input row may be positioned adjacent or proximate to a keyboard of the electronic device.”

Whoo hoo! Apple has told John Gruber at Daring Fireball that they're working on a “completely rethought” Mac Pro, with a modular design that can accommodate high-end CPUs and big GPUs, and which should make it easier for Apple to update with new components on a regular basis. 

The Mac Pro hasn’t been upgraded since its 2013 debut, though the price has remained the same. The Cupertino, California-based company is also working on Apple-branded pro displays to go with them. Unfortunately, Gruber says, the goodies won’t go on sale this year. However, Apple is releasing speed-bump updates to the existing “trash can” Mac Pros. The $2999 model goes from 4 Xeon CPU cores to 6, and from dual AMD G300 GPUs to dual G500 GPUs. The $3999 model goes from 6 CPU cores to 8, and from dual D500 GPUs to dual D800 GPUs. Nothing else is changing, including the ports.

Filed with the patent holder friendly Eastern Texas District Court, Uniloc's lawsuit alleges infringement of three owned patents relating to various consumer facing Apple services. The non-practicing entity is leveraging a set of fairly recent IP credited to Uniloc CEO and serial inventor Craig Etchegoyen.

Apple is currently hard at work on a “completely rethought” Mac Pro, with a modular design that can accommodate high-end CPUs and big honking hot-running GPUs, and which should make it easier for Apple to update with new components on a regular basis.

Rumor: Apple orders 70 million OLED units from...

A company doesn’t buy 70 million components unless you’re probably going to include it in a future product.

Apple has reportedly placed an order for 70 million OLED panels from Samsung, which looks to be set to become Apple’s sold OLED supplier.

Demand for the 2017 iPhone, which is expected to feature a major design overhaul with an edge-to-edge display, glass body, and a premium price tag, is expected to be high as it typically is in a year when a new look is unveiled. Apple and Samsung are gearing up to meet demand with the large panel order.

The story is followed by the following comment from IHS Markit analyst David Hsieh:

“Apple has ordered 70 million units of OLED panels from Samsung this year, while Samsung is preparing to churn out as many as 95 million for Apple in 2017, in case demand exceeds expectations.”

It’s rumored that the OLED panels will be in short supply come the next-gen iPhone’s launch in September, with the majority of...

Apple releases iOS 10.3.1 update, offers bug fixes,...

After a major OS update come the fixes.

Apple on Monday released iOS 10.3.1, an update available for its iOS devices available as an over-the-air update or when connected to iTunes via a Mac or Windows PC.

The update, which weighs in at just under 30 megabytes as an OTA download, resolves issues such as a hardware-specific problem wherein iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c handsets had trouble updating over the air.

The 5 and 5c were Apple’s last iPhone models with a 32-bit processor, the A6. Since the iPhone 5s all iOS devices have turned to 64-bit technology. Apple is in the process of phasing out 32-bit support, and indeed the iOS 10.3.2 beta appears to omit it entirely.

Among the core changes introduced in iOS 10.3 was the switch to the Apple File System, which is better optimized for flash storage. In some cases, the switch restored gigabytes of storage space to the device.

The update addresses bugs, offers security updates and also resolves a...

Apple is currently hard at work on a “completely rethought” Mac Pro, with a modular design that can accommodate high-end CPUs and big honking hot-running GPUs, and which should make it easier for Apple to update with new components on a regular basis. They’re also working on Apple-branded pro displays to go with them.

I also have not-so-great news:

These next-gen Mac Pros and pro displays will not ship until next year. In the meantime, Apple is today releasing meager speed-bump updates to the existing Mac Pros. The $2999 model goes from 4 Xeon CPU cores to 6, and from dual AMD G300 GPUs to dual G500 GPUs. The $3999 model goes from 6 CPU cores to 8, and from dual D500 GPUs to dual D800 GPUs. Nothing else is changing, including the ports. No USB-C, no Thunderbolt 3 (and so no support for the LG UltraFine 5K display).

But more good news, too:

Apple has “great” new iMacs in the pipeline,...

NeuBible is the Bible app Apple would make (if it...

Increasingly, in worship services, I notice folks reading their Bibles and looking up Scripture on their iPhones and iPads. Hey, I'm one of them. My favorite iOS Bible app has been the NIV [New International Version] 50th Edition. However, my NEW favorite is the $4.99 NeuBible, which is available at the Apple App Store.

It's elegant and simple-yet-sophisticated. The creators of NeuBible — former Apple designer Kory Westerhold and Yahoo design director Aaron Martin say — their goal was to "get rid of everything between you and scripture." They've definitely succeeded in their goal. Think of this as the iBible.

I've tried NeuBible on both an iPhone 6, an iPhone 6 Plus, an iPad Air 2, an iPhone 7 Plus, and a 12.9-inch iPad Pro. It's great on the "smaller" Apple smartphone, but really shines on the bigger smartphones and tablets...

Apple patent application illustrates Touch Bar and...

I wondered soon after the launch of the 2016 MacBook Pro whether Apple might have plans to bring the Touch Bar and Touch ID to a new Magic Keyboard. A new Apple patent application shows that the company is at least exploring the idea.

As ever, the language of the patent is dense, but the illustrations include a standalone keyboard as well as a laptop one.

In some embodiments, the device may also include a processing unit positioned within the housing, and a primary display positioned at least partially within the housing and configured to display a graphical-user interface executed by the processing unit. In some embodiments, the display is an organic light-emitting diode display. The electronic device may be a keyboard device.

Apple should implement live support in FaceTime

Screen sharing will likely be in a future feature of Apple's FaceTime. If/when it happens, I'd like to see Apple take things a step further.

Apple’s FaceTime service is a method of two-way personal communication only at the present. However, Apple has filed for a patent that would allow mobile app data sharing and collaboration over FaceTime.

That's great, but where is the Amazon Fire-like feature where you can get live support complete with remote control and administration? That would be extremely useful on a practical level for Mac/iOS device users and a great public relations move for Apple.

While we're on the subject, whatever happened to Apple's promise to open up FaceTime for the world. There’s an opportunity for business level functionality if the technology was opened up. Apple needs to rely on all computers — Window PCs included — to support the software in order for it to really become the...

Belkin releases MIXIT DuraTek USB-C cable and takes...

Few accessory manufacturers have been around since the dawn of the Mac, but one was actually in existence pre-Mac: Belkin. The company was founded by Chet Pipkin (current CEO), who started building cables on his parents' dining room table in 1983. Now the company is well-known to most Apple users for its wide range of accessories, and today Belkin released its latest product -- the US$29.99 MIXIT DuraTek USB-C cable.

The new USB-C cable is a far cry from the original Belkin cables, featuring reinforced conductors with Kevlar® fiber added to improve durability and make a 5-year limited warranty possible. The MIXIT DuraTek USB-C cable is 4 feet long, and comes in black, silver, rose gold and gold colors. Not only does it look good with its long and flexible strain relief connectors, but the cable is MFi certified. 

Speaking of certification, Belkin was the first cable manufacturer to produce cables...

Industrial designer Christopher Stringer is leaving Apple after 21 years with the company, according to The Information. The article doesn't say whether he's retiring or taking another job.

Stringer, shown in the photo with Apple design guru Jony Ive, has been intimately involved with every Apple product since 1995. He was also the first person called to testify in the trial between Apple and Samsung.

He and Richard Howarth — joined Apple in 1996 and has been involved in the design of nearly every Apple product since the original iMac — were the top contenders to take over the design studio when Ive was promoted to Chief Design Officer. Howarth got the job two years ago.

According to Cult of Mac, Stringer worked on the early PowerBooks and tower computers. During his tenure at...

Hands-on with the SpiderPro DSLR Holster System

My Canon DSLR securely locked into a SpiderPro holster. Photo ©2017, Steven Sande

A good percentage of Apple World Today readers are owners of Digital SLR cameras (DSLRs) who use the interchangeable lenses and advanced capabilities of their cameras to take their photography beyond what's possible with iPhone cameras. While the photographic options are definitely better, carrying bulky DSLRs with the traditional neck straps can be a painful experience. Today I'm going hands-on with the SpiderPro DSLR Holster System (single camera starting at US$135), a unique and comfortable way to carry a DSLR -- on your hip.
