The update, which is available via the Software Update function in the Mac App Store, weighs in as a 4.89 gigabyte download and is compatible on the following Macs:

APFS is available for all Macs with solid state storage, but it is not available for Fusion drives or standard hard drives.

Craig Federighi confirms that Apple will add Apple...

This is a bit of good news, even if it lacks a specific date as to when it will be implemented.

Following up on news that the first version of macOS High Sierra limited the Apple File System to Macs featuring all-flash built-in storage and excluded iMacs and Mac mini machines that feature Fusion Drives, Apple engineering chief Craig Federighi has confirmed APFS will indeed be coming to Fusion Drives in a later update.

Federighi stated that “Yes, we plan to add support in a future update,” in a response to a user question about the feature.

Apple’s Fusion Drives, which are available as a storage option on assorted iMacs and Mac mini desktops, combine a hard drive with flash storage to provide the speed of an SSD with the affordability of a standard hard drive. Frequently accessed files are stored using flash storage, while less frequently used files are moved to the hard drive.

The first macOS High Sierra beta released in June featured Apple File...

The Jam Symphony is a solid wireless speaker, though...

The Jam Symphony is a Wi-Fi only (at least when it comes to wireless) speaker. There’s nothing wrong with that — except for one flaw: you’ll have to make sure that your iPhone is connected to 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, not 5GHz, to use the Jam WiFi app. 

That’s a bit tricky if you have a dual-band router. Plus, 5GHz connections are usually faster connections than 2.4GHz. Still, you’ll have to use the app as it connects the speaker to your Wi-Fi network and streams music from your mobile device or streaming service to the speaker itself.

The app can also connect to several streaming services:  Spotify, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, Tidal, or Napster, but not, alas, Apple Music.

That 2.4GHZ/5GHz aggravation aside (though it’s something to keep in mind) the $149.99 Jam Symphony is budget-friendly considering its size and power. The Jam Symphony isn’t for true audiophiles, but its audio...

While analysts are never shy of issuing estimates, Dediu does have a good basis for arguing that his numbers are solid – and for his prediction that there’s much more to come …

Report: Security hole in macOS Keychain puts...

Apple released macOS High Sierra on Monday, so it should be a nice way to spotlight the Mac this week after last week’s iOS 11 and iPhone 8 releases. But a report by a security researcher at Synack puts a bit of a damper on the High Sierra release.

Editor's note: This article was updated at 3:37 p.m. Pacific with a statement from Apple.

Patrick Wardle, Synack’s head of research, posted a video on Monday that shows how code he wrote can be used to get passwords from macOS’s Keychain. Keychain is the password manger built into macOS, and it usually requires a master password to access it. But Wardle’s code was able to access Keychain and collect passwords. The video below is a demonstration posted by Wardle.

Apple recently raised the price of some iPad Pro models, but this week you can find others dropping in cost—at least a little. Right now, Best Buy is selling the 64GB 10.5-inch iPad Pro for $550. That's $100 off the standard price, and it's real savings since the 64GB iPad was not part of Apple's recent price hike.

This is the 2017 model of the Wi-Fi only iPad Pro that features an A10X Fusion chip, 4GB RAM, and of course a 10.5-inch Retina display. Apple claims the new CPU is 30 percent faster than the previous generation of iPads, and it does come close. In our GeekBench 4 benchmark, the new iPad Pro was 28 percent faster than the older 9.7-inch model.

But just because the iPhone X is coming later this year doesn’t automatically mean that you should ignore the iPhone 8. Apple’s brand new flagship smartphone shares a lot of the same design characteristics as the iPhone 6, 6s, and 7, but it also shares some of the same technical power that’s found inside the iPhone X.

Zack Whittaker, reporting for ZDNet: Patrick Wardle, a former NSA hacker who now serves as chief security researcher at -- Synack, posted a video of the hack -- a password exfiltration exploit -- in action. Passwords are stored in the Mac's Keychain, which typically requires a master login password to access the vault.

Apple Replaces Bing With Google as Search Engine For...

Apple is ditching Bing and will now use Google to power the default search engine for Siri, Search within iOS (iOS search bar), and Spotlight on Mac. From a report: TechCrunch reported Monday that Apple users will now see search results powered by Google, instead of Bing, when using those tools. For example, when an iPhone user asks Siri a question that needs a search engine result, the voice assistant will now pull from Google, not Bing. Apple will still use Bing for image search queries using Siri or Spotlight on Mac, TechCrunch reported. Apple said the move was done for consistency; its Safari browser uses Google as the default search engine. In a statement, the company told TechCrunch that "we have strong relationships with Google and Microsoft and remain committed to delivering the best user experience possible." Google is reportedly paying Apple $3 billion this year to remain as the default search engine on iPhones and iPads.

Microsoft has learned a lot of very hard lessons over the last couple of decades, and it continues to surprise and annoy me that other firms seem to have the suicidal tendency to learn the same lessons the hard way.

The latest issue has to do with interoperability and millennials.

And while it’s easy to roll your eyes at the idea of a $350 jacket

tiny screens on our wrists, but in the stuff we’re already

Many readers have told us that they’re going to wait a few weeks or months before upgrading from Sierra due to concerns about the implementation of APFS on different Macs (SSD-equipped MacBooks vs. Fusion Drive iMacs, for example) and the dearth of “must-have” new features in High Sierra. 

Having used High Sierra on a MacBook Pro for almost a month, I can say that it’s stable, fast, and very familiar to anyone who has used Sierra. As long as you have followed our instructions on preparing for the High Sierra upgrade, you should have little or no problems installing the upgrade and recovering from issues if things don’t go...

Apple tops Interbrand’s 2017 Best Global Brands list

Interbrand has named Apple, Google, and Microsoft as the three most valuable brands in its 2017 Best Global Brands ranking, with technology as the dominant sector.

For five consecutive years, Apple and Google hold the top positions. Apple’s brand value grew by 3% to $184,154 million, as Google’s brand value grew by 6% to $141,703 million. Microsoft jumps into #3, as one of sixteen brands with double-digit percent growth. Following Coca-Cola at #4, sits Amazon, Samsung, Toyota, and Facebook, which breaks into the Top 10 for the first-time at #8. Mercedes-Benz, and IBM round out the Top 10.

Interbrand’s 18th annual report “analyzes how brands grow in a changing world, showing that using technology at scale to deliver intimate human experiences, will help drive economic growth value.” The Top 100 brands have a combined total value of $1,871,730 million, an increase of 4.2% from 2016.

Bada Bing! Apple dumps Microsoft for Google in Siri...

Siri can finally Google itself. In a change that’s surprising only because it took this long, Apple has announced it will be switching from Bing to Google results when handling Siri and Spotlight web queries.

Now, when you ask Siri to search the web for something or it doesn’t know the exact answer to what you’re asking, your results will be from Google, not Bing. The change won’t affect the majority of what Siri can do, just where it sends you when it doesn’t know the answer to something. Curiously, image searches will still default to Bing and video search results will now come directly from YouTube, according to TechCrunch.

Apple switching from Bing to Google for Siri, Search...

Apple is switching the default provider of its web searches from Siri, iOS Search and macOS Spotlight from Bing to Google, reports TechCrunch.

“Switching to Google as the web search provider for Siri, Search within iOS and Spotlight on Mac will allow these services to have a consistent web search experience with the default in Safari,” Apple said in a statement. “We have strong relationships with Google and Microsoft and remain committed to delivering the best user experience possible.”

Last month Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi Jr. told clients that Google will pay Apple $3 billion this year to remain the default search engine on iPhones and iPads. Google paid Apple $1 billion for the privilege in 2014. The Google licensing payments are mostly profit for Apple. Bernstein estimates the payments could...

Analyst: pre-orders for the iPhone X may top 50...

In a note to clients as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes pre-orders for the iPhone X could pass 50 million units, noting that the high end smartphone is the first complete form factor revamp since 2016 and could prompt a “super cycle” of upgrades.

He expects Apple to ramp up iPhone X output in late October,  but doesn’t think demand will match supply until next year. iPhone X pre-orders start Friday, Oct. 27; the first units are supposed to be available on Friday, Nov. 3.

Rumor: 2018 iPhone line-up could include a model...

The Korea Herald reports that Apple’s 2018 lineup of iPhones could (and “could’ is probably the operative word here), include a larger LCD model measuring over sixinches with the panel coming from Japan Display.

The new device joins the previously rumored 5.8-inch and 6.46-inch OLED models with panels supplied by Samsung. The Korea Herald says Apple likely won’t switch to all OLED panels until 2019, which is when LG should have the production capacity to help minimize Apple’s dependence on Samsung. 

OLED is made up of many tiny LEDs, each emitting their own light and colors. They don’t require an “always on” backlight, as each LED can be on or off as needed, and emitting the right kind of light needed to create the images you’re seeing. Supporters of the technology praise its high contrast/deep blacks and potential thickness and power consumption advantages. ...

iOS 11 Is Causing Massive Battery Drain Problems

Mark Wilson writes: A study conducted by security research firm Wandera shows that iOS 11 is causing iPhone and iPad batteries to drain faster than ever -- much faster. The difference between iOS 10 and iOS 11 is anything but minor; batteries can drain in half the amount of time following the upgrade. Wandera's report shows how, on average, an iPhone or iPad running iOS 10 takes 240 minutes of usage to drain the battery from 100 percent to zero. With iOS 11 installed, this number plummets to just 96 minutes -- over twice as fast. Users have also complained about the issue.

It looks like Siri and Google are friends again and Bing is in the rear view mirror. In a major shift, Apple is changing its search results provider for Siri and Spotlight on iOS and macOS from Microsoft’s Bing to the vastly more popular Google.

TechCrunch says the change has started to roll out today (it’s also live for me) and should be in effect for all users by the end of the day. For users, this means Siri and Spotlight will now provide the same search results as Safari by default (and in a lot of cases show better search results).

Rogue Amoeba celebrating 15th anniversary, having a...

Rogue Amoeba is a company with an odd name and a wonderful purpose -- providing award-winning audio tools. The company turns 15 on September 15th, and it's celebrating with a big sale on everything in the product line.

How much of a sale? To start off with, Rogue Amoeba is taking 15 percent off of every app. Then they're adding a "savings boost" that can vary from 1.33X to 4X, basically meaning that you'll actually get to save 20 to 60 percent on the products. 

To get started you just need to point your browser at the sale page, where you can "scratch off" a virtual ticket for your savings boost percentage (unsurprisingly, mine came in at 1.33X -- which is still worth $9.80 off on Audio Hijack or a whopping $19.80 off of Loopback.

The sale only lasts through September 30, so if you're going to take advantage of the savings on one of...

Highlighted in the video are the "spaceship" building, the visitor center / Apple Store, the aforementioned Steve Jobs Theater, the employee wellness center, and the continued planting of fruit trees and native grasses around the facility. Can you imagine what this place will look like in a year or two after the plantings have had an opportunity to flourish?

Insight into the Apple Watch Series 3 signal meter

Jeff Butts, MacObserver, sharing info he got from Andrew Woodward, who has his new Apple Watch in hand:

When Mr. Woodward activated his Apple Watch Series 3 LTE and received a text message confirmation, he thought he’d see the green dots on the Watch face. He didn’t, so began the technical support process. After speaking to both his cellular provider and Apple, the thought was that the eSIM was still waiting to be provisioned.

It wasn’t, but Mr. Woodward didn’t realize it until later on in the day. He walked away from his iPhone, beyond Bluetooth and Wi-Fi range. Suddenly the green dots appeared.

Those green dots are the sign that your Apple Watch is flying solo, using its data plan and, likely, using more battery to support the LTE radio.

As you’d expect, the Apple Watch uses the iPhone’s radio whenever possible, saving battery life.

How Apple built an iPhone camera that makes everyone...

John Paczkowski, Managing Editor, BuzzFeed:

This year the company is particularly proud of these, which boast a marquee “Portrait Lighting” feature that brings a range of professional-looking effects to the already great photos the dual camera system on the iPhone 7 Plus is capable of taking.

This year’s leap, however, feels particularly meaningful.

And:

The camera’s effects don’t rely on filters. They’re the result of Apple’s new dual camera system working in concert with machine learning to sense a scene, map it for depth, and then change lighting contours over the subject. It’s all done in real time, and you can even preview the results thanks to the company’s enormously powerful new A11 Bionic chip. The result, when applied to Apple scale, has the power to be transformative for modern photography, with millions of amateur shots suddenly professionalized. In many ways it’s the fullest realization of the democratization of high-quality imagery that the...

Mastering the iOS 11 app-stacking gesture

From a larger article on customizing your iOS home screen, Rene Ritchie has a section on rearranging apps on a page. Of all the gestures added to iOS over the years, I find this one (stacking app icons) the most difficult to master. Might be my big oafish fingers, or a subtlety on the tap mechanism itself, but I’ve simply found this mechanism frustrating.

But.

Reading the steps Rene lays out in his post, watching the GIF, and practicing a bit, I finally have it. I think the issue for me was a quick staccato tap to add an icon. Had to hit it just right.

No matter, if you’ve never tried the app stacking thing, give Rene’s article a read.
