One of the new features we highlighted in iOS 9 is an innovative new way to help your iPhone battery make it through a long day. When toggled on, Low Power mode automatically kicks in when your battery level starts to get low, reducing the clock speed of the CPU as well as cutting some background activities.

MacRumors ran some tests in Geekbench 3 to measure the performance reduction when Low Power mode was activated, and found it to reduce the performance of an iPhone by around 40%. This would mean that your...

Makulu 9 Aero Soars Above the Linux Distro Crowd

With transgender celebrities gracing magazine covers and the Supreme Court set to rule on gay marriage across the U.S., the LGBT movement has come a long way. But we’re still far behind when it comes to addressing the health and wellness of LGBT people. 

To address that, medical researchers are launching a new “PRIDE Study” to shed some light on the unique health needs of LGBT folks—and they’re using iPhones to conduct it. A new ResearchKit app developed by the University of California at San Francisco will survey a wide range of LGBT folks about health issues like HIV/AIDS, smoking, cancer, obesity, mental issues and depression. 

“The main question there is, what is the relationship between being LGBTQ—or more broadly a sexual or gender minority person—and mental and physical health?” Mitchell Lunn, co-director of the PRIDE Study at UCSF, told BuzzFeed News...

A month after the trial ended for day one subscribers, App Annie says HBO Now sat at “#2 overall daily grossing rank in the United States” according to its data. Showtime is planning a similar standalone service ...

Review: iHome SoundFlask iBT32 Bluetooth Speaker

As you can see, iHome's SoundFlask iBT32 ($100) is a Bluetooth speaker styled to mimic, yes, a (rather large) flask. On the front of the SoundFlask are a speaker grille and four LED battery indicators. The rear is covered with soft-touch faux leather. A simple set of controls is covered by silicone on top; another silicone flap covers a charging port, audio-in port, and a USB charging port on the bottom. The SoundFlask's body is trimmed with some chromed plastic to complete the look. In the box, a charging cable, AC adapter, and audio cable are included. We received this and a smaller version of the SoundFlask, the iBT12, but only considered the larger iBT32 version for purposes of this review.{/exp:char_limit}

davek writes with news that Google is removing results related to the Confederate Flag from Google Shopping, the company's online marketplace. They're also blocking advertisements involving the flag. They say, "We have determined that the Confederate flag violates our Ads policies, which don't allow content that's generally perceived as expressing hate toward a particular group." At the same time, Apple is removing from the App Store any games or other software featuring the Confederate Flag. This, of course, follows the recent shooting in South Carolina, which triggered a nationwide debate over whether the flag should be flown at government buildings (or anywhere). Major online merchant websites like eBay and Amazon have already taken the step of banning merchandise relating to the flag.

A data breach is no picnic for any organization, but for a company that makes its potato salad by protecting other people's passwords, it's the mother of all nightmares.

To make matters worse, LastPass wasn't prepared for the traffic surge from everyone trying to change their passwords at the same time, so performance headaches inconvenienced users further.

The renewed debate over the Confederate battle flag is bleeding further into the digital realm this morning. As Touch Arcade reports, Apple seems to be removing many games that feature the flag's image from the iOS App Store, including a number of war simulations that use the flag primarily to mark historical context.

Touch Arcade reports that affected developers are being told that their apps have been removed "...because [they] include images of the confederate flag used in offensive and mean-spirited ways." But some game developers take issue with that characterization. "We're in no way sympathetic to the use of the flag in an offensive way, we used it purely because historically that was the flag that was used at the time," a developer from strategy game maker HexWar told Touch Arcade.

Artists to get their 0.2 cents worth during Apple...

With five more days until Apple Music debuts on June 30, details are beginning to come out about what exactly Apple will pay artists during the three-month free trial period. According to an article in The New York Times which cited music executives, the deal with record labels will result in Apple paying 0.2 cents per play for songs streamed during the free trial. That rate is on par with the free tier rates paid by competing services like Spotify.

Artists and songwriters will actually make quite a bit less; that fee is reportedly pre-tax, meaning that after value-added taxes are levied in European countries, up to an addition 25 percent could be lopped off. 

Apple is also paying a smaller fee to music publishers for songwriting rights, with negotiations still underway as the date for Apple Music's launch draws closer. ...

The flag has been increasingly under fire in the wake of the racially motivated church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, and retailers such as Amazon, eBay, and Walmart have withdrawn sales of items depicting it. However, some say that Apple has gone too far, since the ban also includes a number of Civil War games that used the flag in a historical context, some of which were used by educators.

Williams teased the launch with a 15-second clip of his new song Freedom that he posted on Twitter with the tag line, Only on Apple Music June 30th.

Zane Lowe, the D.J. scratching out Beats 1 for Apple

The new York Times:

For the last 12 years, Mr. Lowe has been a top tastemaker on the BBC’s Radio 1 by championing brand-new music, landing interviews with stars like Kanye West and running his show with a frenetic production style inspired by hip-hop itself. Now he is preparing for a much broader role as the guiding voice of Beats 1, a free Internet radio station from Apple that on Tuesday will begin broadcasting to smartphones and laptops around the world — an experiment, of sorts, to reinvent live radio.

I hope we see profiles of the other two featured DJs for Beats 1. This is an aspect of Apple Music I find especially interesting and, I think, will make or break the service.

Apple decides on royalty rate of 0.2 cents per play...

Apple’s decided on a royalty amount to pay the artists on Apple Music during its 90-day free trial.

And that number is 0.2 cents per play.

The New York Times is reporting that music executives close to the story have stated that Apple has negotiated 0.2 cents per play with the record labels. The amount is comparable to free tier rates paid by competing streaming services.

In addition to the per-play fee, Apple is also paying a smaller sum to publishers for songwriting rights. Publishing companies confirmed that negotiations are still in flux less than one week from Apple Music’s launch.

On Tuesday, Apple inked...

No word on Apple’s official iCloud system status page, but the Calendar and Reminders web apps on iCloud.com are currently down as several readers have pointed out.

Other iCloud web apps appear to be working properly. We’ll keep an eye on the outage and update if anything changes, but if you’re seeing the outage it’s not just you.

T-Mobile’s new ‘Jump! On Demand’ plan lets you...

T-Mobile is upgrading its Jump plan introduced two years ago to allow subscribers to move to new smartphones more frequently than before. The new Jump On Demand option lets you lease a smartphone for a small monthly fee, then trade it in for a new smartphone up to three times per year at no additional cost. For example, a base model iPhone 6 would cost $15 per month to lease with Jump On Demand after trading in an eligible smartphone.

Without upgrading, leasing that iPhone 6 through Jump On Demand would carry the monthly fee for 18 months. Then T-Mobile will provide a purchase option, $164 in the case of the iPhone 6, if you choose to keep the leased device as owned.

The appeal of Jump On Demand,...

Apple Beats 1 advertising lands at Times Square

Apple is pulling out all the stops when it comes to its advertising campaign for its new Apple Music service and Beats 1 radio station. Not only is the company debuting the streaming service with an exclusive track from pop star Pharrell Williams, the company also is taking out a large advertisement in the center of Times Square as tweeted by Zane Low and reported by 9to5Mac. The billboard promotes the worldwide availability and always-on broadcast of the new online music channel. Notably missing from the advertisement is the Apple logo, which Apple has decided not to include in this part of the campaign.

The new Apple Music service with the Beats 1 channel will debut on June 30th. Apple Music will cost $9.99 per month for an individual plan with a family...

A couple of days after Zac Hall called for Apple to join large retailers like Walmart, Target, Sears, Amazon and eBay in withdrawing from selling items featuring the Confederate flag, Apple appears to be working on doing just that.

Touch Arcade noticed that many Civil War games like Ultimate General: Gettysburg and the Hunted Cow series have all disappeared. An App Store search for ‘Confederate’ on Tuesday found plenty of games featuring the flag, while the same search today appears to show only apps dealing with the history (such as the reference work shown) above. All of the games shown in Tuesday’s search (below) have been removed...

Musician and former Beats shareholder will.i.am said that seeing someone in a gym with an iPhone 6 strapped to their arm while wearing an Apple Watch made him think “that s*** is weird,” reports the NY Post.

The comment – made at the Cannes Lions festival where Apple won an award for its Shot on iPhone campaign – was probably not what Apple had in mind when the company invited him to the launch of the Watch last year.

Samsung continues its years-long advertising campaign against Apple fans with the release of its latest Galaxy S6 commercial. The latest volley portrays the group as bumbling idiots always tripping over their tangled changing cables. While poking fun at competitors, the new "Change the Way you Charge" ad points out the benefits of the built-in inductive charging offered by the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.

Our take on the news:

Charge, schmarge. I'll happily carry a single lightning cable that'll charge all my iOS devices any day over Samsung's wireless charging solution that is only supported by the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones.

It was confirmed this morning that Apple would be taking the same approach as Spotify in effectively paying labels a 35% royalty – half the going rate – during its own three-month free trial.

Are T-Mobile iPhones cursed with crashes and blue...

Today I noticed that every time I pulled my T-Mobile iPhone out of my pocket and tried to use it, I couldn’t use Touch ID and had to enter my passcode. I didn’t give it a second thought, since I was so focused on doing what I wanted to do on my iPhone.

But then I saw the following tweet from MacRumors:

T-Mobile iPhone Users Seeing Frequent Random Restarts and Blue Screens http://t.co/XntijFd2bP by @julipuli

— MacRumors.com (@MacRumors) June 24, 2015

And it all started to make sense. To see if that’s why I kept having to enter a passcode, I placed my iPhone on my desk and left it on. It crashed with a blue screen of death four times in 45 minutes. It also crashed while I used different apps.

Dropbox made itself a household name by giving away cloud storage. The eight-year-old company, valued at $10 billion, had 300 million registered users a year ago; now it’s got 400 million. Its two-year-old effort to make money from business users has been less impressive. While Dropbox led the $904 million global market for business file-sharing last year with about a 24 percent share, No. 2 Box and No. 3 Microsoft each took about 21 percent and doubled their slice of the pie, growing almost twice as fast, according to researcher IDC.

Dropbox is hugely popular, but it seems clear they need to figure out this sales strategy quickly.

Ahead of its launch next week, Apple today has launched a new ad for Beats 1 in Times Square in New York City. Zane Lowe, who will be one of three hosts on Apple’s 24/7 streaming station Beats 1, tweeted the above image of the advertisement.

The promotional image touts that Beats 1 is worldwide and always on, two of the qualities Apple discussed heavily when it unveiled Apple Music at WWDC. What’s weird about the Times Square advertisement, however, is that there is no Apple logo anywhere on the monumental display. There’s only a Beats logo, albeit slightly modified, the “Worldwide. Always on.” tagline, and the June 30th launch date. It’s a risky move by Apple not...
