The iOS 10.1 public beta notably adds the “Portrait Camera” depth of field effect for iPhone 7 Plus, which Apple demonstrated at its event earlier this month — an enhancement that may encourage iPhone 7 Plus users to sign up for the public beta program to take an early peek…

It allows not only JCB, but also its issuing and processing partners to integrate with Apple Pay and offer real-time enrollment, provisioning and tokenization capabilities, according to Mehdi Elhaoussine, OT’s head of Digital Payments.

Comment: Activity Sharing in iOS 10 and watchOS 3 is...

Apple is known to be notoriously bad at social — look no further than Ping, a social feature embedded in iTunes that Tim Cook killed because no one used it. That’s fine for the most part because Apple makes the platform (iOS) where the best social network apps (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.) exist and people continue buying iPhones.

Apple isn’t completely socially awkward either. Music lets you tweet and post playlists, Photos lets you share Photo Streams with contacts and on the web, and iOS share sheets facilitate the majority of my social sharing. It’s Apple’s new Activity Sharing feature that I’ve been enjoying the most since...

iOS 10: How to Use Your iPhone as a Magnifying Lens

Apple is now publishing public web pages for landmarks and POI in its Apple Maps database: here’s one such place. The website link shows details about the place such as location, name, telephone number and reviews. The design is identical to the cards in the iOS 10 Maps app.

When on an Apple platform, these URLs appear to act as deep links into the native Maps app. If viewing in Chrome or on a non-Apple device like Android, the fallback webpage is loaded. The purpose for these URLs is unclear, but it may possibly foreshadow a larger move by Apple to offer its own online mapping service to compete with Google Maps on the web.

Music theory for nerds

If you are new to music theory and have a technical bent, this is an interesting introduction, one that lays some important foundations, especially if you have any interest in songwriting. It’s written as a non-musical engineer digging in to the science behind music and discovering the mathematics that ties everything together.

Don’t let the science bog you down. Intervals, scales, and modes are the key concepts here.

iPhone 7 display technology shoot-out

Dr. Raymond M. Soneira, DisplayMate:

At first glance the iPhone 7 looks almost indistinguishable from the 2014 iPhone 6 and 2015 iPhone 6s. Actually, the displays are the same size and have the same pixel resolution. But that is as far as it goes… The iPhone 7 display is a Truly Impressive major enhancement and advancement on the iPhone 6 display… and even every other mobile LCD display that we have ever tested… note that I hand out compliments on displays very carefully. And for those of you thinking of Emailing that we got hand-picked units, the iPhones were purchased retail from Verizon Wireless.

The iPhone 7 got extraordinarily high scores, and this from someone who really knows display tech. Read the post for the details, but this is one area in which the iPhone 7 is hands down the best in class.

Apple looks to open first store in Samsung’s backyard

Jonathan Cheng, writing for the Wall Street Journal:

Apple Inc. has made inquiries about opening its first retail store in South Korea, in a signal that the technology giant may be looking to step up competition in smartphone rival Samsung Group’s backyard.

Apple looked at sites across the street from the Samsung’s longtime headquarters in Seoul, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Cupertino, Calif. company, which is Samsung Electronics Co.’s biggest rival in the mobile-phone market as well as a major customer of its smartphone components, is looking at locations near the South Korean company’s own three-story global flagship store in Seoul’s upscale Gangnam neighborhood, the people said. The company has sent retail executives to South Korea in recent months to check out potential sites for the store, they said.

The people warned that Apple’s plan hasn’t been finalized and a store opening could take about a year.

The New York Times’ dark, dark Messages review

Amanda Hess, writing for the New York Times:

Apple built an empire on hermetically sealed systems with sleek, minimalist designs. Nowhere was its strategy more evident than in iMessage, the company’s instant messaging system that offered a free, elegant chatting solution exclusive to Apple devices. Until last week, that is, when Apple updated its software, cracked open iMessage and allowed the ephemera of the outside internet to seep in.

And:

These features mimic the aesthetics of the open internet, which is obsessed with nostalgia and is not exactly subtle. But they can’t replicate the feeling of collecting digital miscellany in our travels across the internet, remixing the material and sending it along to friends who might appreciate the find. The programmatic iMessage sucks the spontaneity from the experience. It standardizes the strange.

And:

Mostly, this thing feels like Facebook. A new class of iMessage apps — yes, apps within an app — lets...

Apple buying McLaren would make perfect sense

Jordan Golson, writing for The Verge:

An acquisition would give Apple a small but significant carmaker that has enormous amounts of technological expertise in building drivetrains, vehicle control systems, and navigating complicated supplier-OEM relationships. McLaren also has significant experience working with advanced materials like carbon composites, aluminum, and carbon fiber.

It’s a small but important firm, best known for its sports cars — it sold 1,654 road cars in 2015 — and its Formula One team. But the company is much more than just a car manufacturer. The 5,000 employees of the McLaren Technology Group work across six different divisions including automotive, racing, marketing, and as an automotive supplier for race teams and high-end performance cars.

McLaren has quietly been growing its consulting division as well. McLaren Applied Technologies works with firms across a number of industries — both automotive and otherwise — to provide R&D and...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 201602755475) for “group peer-to-peer financial transactions.” With macOS Sierra, Mac users can now pay online in Safari using a “Pay with Apple Pay” button, and authenticate their purchase using Touch ID on their phone or watch. Soon owners of iOS and macOS devices may be able to easily send electronic cash to each other.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that, as we move to a more mobile and fast-paced society, the use of cash or currency is being increasingly replaced by electronic transactions using credit cards, debit cards, etc. It’s pretty common for consumers to hold multiple non-currency accounts concurrently (e.g., multiple credit cards or debits cards corresponding to a respective banking provider), each of which may be dedicated for a particular type of purchase or financial exchange. 

For example, a consumer may concurrently hold a credit card account that may be dedicated for gas or automotive purchases, a credit...

California Supreme Court votes to review a libel...

Paresh Dave, writing for the LA Times:

The California Supreme Court agreed to review Yelp’s objection to a decision ordering it to strip the Internet of comments posted about a San Francisco law firm.

The law firm owner, Dawn Hassell, sued Ava Bird, the disgruntled former client who allegedly posted the reviews — and lower courts agreed that Yelp should be forced to remove them.

And:

To the frustration of many plaintiffs’ attorneys, the Communications Decency Act has long freed online publishers from liability for user postings on their websites and apps. But many technology experts say the Hassell case may be the biggest threat yet to the immunity.

The appellate court found that no liability was being placed on Yelp, and thus the ruling didn’t go against federal law. Instead, as the “administrator of the forum” where defamatory speech existed, Yelp bears the responsibility of removal, the court said.

Experts in technology law say they’re...

When I tried the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, one of the things that put me off was the quality of the keyboards available at the time.

The Apple Smart Keyboard, that I got to try later, was a bit prettier but still not fantastic to type on.

What I really wanted at the time was for Brydge to bring out a version of its iPad keyboard for the 12.9-inch model. It eventually did so, and I got the chance to try it this week …

They’ve run the numbers and after a preliminary teardown, iPhone 7 component costs are estimated to start at $219.80, which is $36.89 higher than iPhone 6s, according to a preliminary teardown of a 32GB model by IHS Markit.

According to the report, the display remains the most expensive component, clocking in at an estimated $43 while the Intel modem and other baseband chips retail for about $33.90.

Apple’s quad-core A10 Fusion chip is the third most expensive item on the bill of materials, costing an estimated $26.90. Meanwhile, the larger 1,920 mAh battery is said to cost just $2.50.

The new rear-facing iSight camera and updated 7-megapixel go for a combined $19.90 while electromechanical components, including the Taptic Engine, antennas,...

Moving beyond the McLaren rumor, Apple is also said to be talking to Lit Motors, a small company that participated in the Startup Battlefield at TechCrunch Disrupt SF back in 2012, a contest they finished second in.

The San Francisco-based startup is developing a new kind of electric vehicle vehicle that seems something like a two-wheeled motorcycle that can’t tip over thanks to built-in stabilization technologies.

Lit is said to have only raised $2.2 million in total in venture capital and it’s unclear if the company still has money today to survive as an independent entity or if it has been looking for an acquirer.

The larger the screen, the larger the content?

Everyone who has ever tried to watch a full movie on an iPhone will probably agree that it's not the best way to see the latest blockbuster. On the other hand, a smartphone works just fine when you're watching a funny YouTube clip while commuting home from work. 

The point is: different devices are suited for different types of video content. A study by Ooyala confirms this: while only 49% of the time spent watching video on smartphones is spent with videos longer than 10 minutes, long-form video accounts for more than 80% of total video consumption on connected TVs. 

Interestingly, the rule is not as simple as "the larger the screen the longer the content." Tablets such as the iPad, which typically have smaller screens than desktop PCs such at the iMac, see a higher percentage of long-form video than PCs.

How to do a clean install of macOS Sierra

Sometimes it’s nice to do some thorough housecleaning on your Mac. This could mean doing a “clean install.” A clean install is a software installation in which any previous version — and all its files — are completely eradicated.

The alternative to a clean install is an upgrade, in which elements of a previous version remain. For example, when I did an upgrade of macOS Sierra on my Macs, elements of Mac OS X El Capitan remained. If I had done a clean install, those elements would be history.

If you decide to do a clean install on your Mac, back up all your important files in case something goes wrong. So if you want to do a clean install of macOS Sierra, first create a bootable drive of the operating system, then:

  • Make sure your Mac is online.
  • Click on the Apple icon ().
  • Choose Restart from the drop-down menu.

Video shot/edited by Jennifer Hahn. (video link)

Whether you wanted to or not, you knew about the Apple Watch as soon as it came out last year. And even if you heard "wearble" and immediately thought "fitness," Apple was very intentional about pushing the Watch's non-fitness features as the main reason to buy it. While there are things the Apple Watch can do that are primarily found in smartwatches versus fitness trackers, Apple hasn't yet convinced consumers at large that they need those features—or that they're worth $350, at least.

The true value of a smartwatch may still up for debate, but what's undeniable is that people see practical value in connected fitness devices. With the Apple Watch Series 2, Apple has decided to embrace...

The DKnight Big MagicBox portable Bluetooth speaker offers surprisingly sound considering its low (under $60) price, though it won’t appeal to audiophiles. Then, again, that’s not the target audience. 

That audience consisted of folks who want an affordable wireless speaker that sounds good and which is easily transported to use with iOS devices. And, in that regard, it shines. Measuring 8.8 x 3.4 x 3..3 inches and weighing 1.4 pounds, it can fit in a suitcase or big backpack for a day trip.

Its tubular design makes it easy to grasp with one hand, even as one flat side makes it easy to be placed on a surface without it rolling off. It’s coated with soft touch rubber which protects your speaker and also the surface you want to place it on.

The Dknight Big MagicBox’s physical controls (for play/pause, skip, previous, volume up and down) are atop...

Turns Out Apple CAN Patent Its Way Out of a Paper Bag

Who says the U.S. Patent system needs an overhaul? Companies like Apple patent everything they can. It’s not only a smart strategy, it’s a necessary strategy within the legal framework and patent structure we have today. With that in mind, I present to you patent application 20160264304, for a patent called “Bag.” The abstract described the patent as, “A paper bag is disclosed. The paper bag may include a bag container formed of white solid bleached sulfate paper with at least 60% post-consumer content.” OK, I see your lols bubbling forth, and I’m with you. But, the patent appears to focus on innovations in the way the handles are attached to “Bag.” The patent hasn’t yet been granted. The application was sent to our own Dave Hamilton by a...

Opinion: Apple Watch Series 2 may right enough...

Read Zac’s full Apple Watch Series 2 review

I’ve never been entirely sold on Apple Watch. From the get go, I didn’t necessarily see a clear purpose for the device. Nevertheless, I purchased the first-gen model on launch day, being the Apple fanboy that I am. Over the course of my first year and a half with Apple Watch, though, I didn’t find myself consistently wearing it. I would go through phases where I would use it for a few weeks, but then I would go weeks without even charging it.

This year, Apple revamped the Apple Watch lineup and I was pressed with the decision of upgrading or sticking with my first-generation model. It didn’t make a lot of sense for me to spend money on something that I wasn’t consistently using, but factors such as the improved speed seemed like enough to dispel some of my issues with the first-gen. So much so, that I went ahead and purchased the Apple Watch...

Nikon Gets In On the Action


Nikon has announced its new KeyMission line of shooters, marking its entry into the 360-degree and action camera business. The KeyMission 360 can corral 360-degree video in 4K UHD at 24p, as well as in the more traditional HD 1080p. It also shoots 30-megapixel stills. The unit has two f/2.0 lenses, each with a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. The dual units eliminate a bane of 360-degree cameras: blind spots. Other features include automatic in-camera stitching; shooting modes like Superlapse, Time-Lapse and Loop; and a built-in stereo microphone.

Notable apps and app updates for Sept. 21, 2016

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.

A busy weekend for Apple retail locations

Apple's renovation of older Apple retail outlets continues at a fast pace, and this weekend will see the reopening of four US stores with the new Jony Ive/Angela Ahrendts design. 

The stores in question are the Brea Mall in Brea, California; Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton, California, Clarendon in Arlington, Virginia; and Arrowhead Towne Center in Glendale, Arizona. Three of the four -- all except Clarendon -- are moving to new and larger locations in each mall. Clarendon was in the most need of a refresh, as it had not changed in exterior looks since it first opened in 2001. All four locations will reopen at 10 AM local time on September 24.

Apple has brought the promised “Portrait Camera” depth of field effect to the iPhone 7 Plus as part of the iOS 10.1 beta released earlier today, suggesting that the company will likely exceed most expectations on its goal to deliver the feature “later this year.” The new feature places an additional “Portrait” mode on the slider in the camera app, between Photo and Square, and seems to require a higher level of…

SCOTTeVEST’s OTG Mashes Your Computer Bag and Jacket...

Fall is in the air, which means it’s time to start thinking about which jacket you’re going to wear on chilly days, and maybe which laptop bag to carry, too. SCOTTeVEST is combining the two with its new Off The Grid (OTG) jackets for men and women. The jackets are insulated to keep you warm and include pockets big enough to carry a 15-inch MacBook Pro and iPad, touch-through pockets for your iPhone, accessory pockets, an RFID-proof pocket, and channels to route headphone and charger cables so they’re out of sight. That’s a lot of pockets. The OTG is priced at US$215 and is available now in black or blue for men, and black or plum for women.

Everyone is raving about this article and, while it’s interesting, this “feature” is not “crazy”. Photographers have been creating this effect in camera for a hundred years. I’ll critique it and Panzarino’s photographs (gently – after all, I can’t make fun of a guy with a new baby named Enzo!) on tonight’s Your Mac Life “Starting Point Photography” segment. Bottom line is, you don’t have to wait for Apple’s iOS 10 “Portrait Mode” to create these kinds of images.

'Corporate Troll' Wins $3 Million Verdict...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: A non-practicing entity called MobileMedia Ideas LLC won a patent lawsuit against Apple today, with a Delaware federal jury finding that Apple should pay $3 million for infringing MobileMedia's patent RE39,231, which relates to ring-silencing features on mobile phones. MobileMedia is an unusual example of the kind of pure patent-licensing entity often derided as a "patent troll." It is majority-owned by MPEG-LA, a patent pool that licenses common digital video technologies like H-264, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4. Minority stakes in MobileMedia are owned by Sony and Nokia, which both contributed the patents owned by the company. MobileMedia also has the same CEO as MPEG-LA, Larry Horn. The battle ended up being a long one, as MobileMedia first filed the case in 2010. It went to trial in 2012, and the jury found that Apple infringed three patents. After reviewing post-trial motions, the judge knocked out some, but not all, of the...

First it was the The Financial Times reporting Apple has approached McLaren Technology Group, the British supercar engineer and Formula One team owner, about a potential acquisition (which McLaren denies). Now a New York Times write-up claims Apple is in talks with Lit Motors regarding a possible acquisition. Both parties have denied comment.

Lit Motors, which is headquartered in San Francisco, specializes in designing two-wheeled, gyroscopically stabilized electric vehicles. Although a stark departure from the supercar pedigree associated with McLaren, “a deal on this front could possess its own virtues,” opines Seeking Alpha.

Rumor: Apple looking into acquisition, strategic...

If you’ve ever drooled a bit over a parked McLaren on the street, then you’ve got something in common with Apple.

The current rumor has it that Apple has approached British supercar-maker McLaren to discuss an acquisition or a strategic investment in the firm. The talks are said to have been in progress for several months.

McLaren is best known for its Formula One racing team and also has a fast-growing road cars division that started up less than a year ago. The company has also received accolades for its million-dollar P1 hybrid hypercar and its line of supercars. McLaren also has a large consulting division and a technologies group that acts as a parts supplier to other carmakers and race teams.

Back in July, Apple reportedly returned...
