Uber Sees You When You’re Sleeping…Around – TMO...

“I’ll be watching you” is a line that might make Sting look a lot more prescient after you hear this episode. Uber and Waze want to know where you are even more than they used to, and Apple wants to put drones in the air over your roads and in front of your homes, at least for a little bit. It’s a brave new world. Our advice: don’t go outside without pants on.

Fake Apple Chargers Fail Safety Tests

Investigators have warned consumers they face potentially fatal risks after 99% of fake Apple chargers failed a basic safety test. From a report on BBC: Trading Standards, which commissioned the checks, said counterfeit electrical goods bought online were an "unknown entity." Of 400 counterfeit chargers, only three were found to have enough insulation to protect against electric shocks. It comes as Apple has complained of a "flood" of fakes being sold on Amazon. Apple revealed in October that it was suing a third-party vendor, which it said was putting customers "at risk" by selling power adapters masquerading as those sold by the Californian tech firm.

New 2016 MacBook Pros default to scaled non-native...

A little-known fact about the new 2016 MacBook Pros is that Apple changed the default screen resolution configuration. With a fresh install of the operating system, I noticed that my new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar uses a scaled screen resolution that does not 1:1 map to the display’s native 2880×1800 resolution.

This setting is called ‘Looks like 1680×1050’ and offers more space at the expense of some blurriness, most noticeable on text. For the best Retina quality, you need to dig into the settings, although this will mean sacrificing some screen real estate. See a comparison, and how to change these options, after the jump …

How to find out if your iPhone 6s is eligible for...

When my iPhone 6s started shutting down earlier this month even though it still had 20 percent or 30 percent battery life showing, I suspected maybe it was just getting too cold. After all, I’ve seen my iPhones be temperature sensitive in the past.

But it turns out that the problem really stemmed from a bug in version 10.1 or 10.1.1 of Apple iOS, and now Apple is offering free battery replacement by those affected. The weird thing that those of us affected by this have experienced is that after charging the phone back in, it almost immediately turns back on, back at its 20 percent or 30 percent battery level.

This iPhone 6s battery issue differs from an earlier, overblown iPhone 6s battery problem story. It also is separate from an issue earlier this month in which ...

Review: iHome iZBT10 Zenergy Bedside Sleep Therapy...

The full product name of iHome's new iZBT10 Zenergy Bedside Sleep Therapy Speaker ($100) explains its main aim: a bedroom speaker meant to be a sleep machine. But that's not all, as iHome has packed the speaker with features, hoping for it to become a jack-of-all-trades speaker — at least as far as the bedroom goes. On top of its alarm clock and sleep machine abilities, iZBT10 allows for Bluetooth playback, a full array of lighting options — the speaker offers light therapy in addition to sound therapy — FM radio, and a 2.5A charging port, as well. While there are a number of on-speaker controls, iZBT10 reaches its full potential with the use of iHome's Zenergy app, which allows users to quickly access all of the speaker's features.{/exp:char_limit}

Reddit has identified hundreds of the most "toxic users," said CEO Steve Huffman, and it has devised a plan to take action against them. Consequence for unacceptable behavior could range from warnings to timeouts to permanent bans. Reddit's latest move serendipitously mirrors the current plotline of Comedy Central's hit animated series South Park, which depicts Internet trolls as having become a serious global issue.

∞ Your iPhone, the special property of the left side...

Do you have an iPhone 6s or newer? Try this:

  • Unlock your phone.
  • Press your thumb on the left bezel (the black framing on the left side of the front of the phone) and press.

As you press, the force touch will reveal just a bit of the stack of apps you are running. Press with a bit more force, and that view will go full screen, as if you had double pressed the home button.

Not sure when this feature first came out, but it seems little enough known that I thought this was worth a post.

I wish Apple would let me switch over to the right side. I also wish I could assign this specific force touch to other aspects of the iOS interface.

For example, imagine if I could use that gesture to undo the last autocorrect, no matter the app. You’d be typing along and notice that iOS changed a word to, say, ducking. Not what you wanted. So you give a quick force touch and your original word is automatically put back in place, without your...

How Apple could make international travel easier

Dan Moren has been doing some traveling. Currently in India, he writes about his experiences living on the road with Apple tech.

For example:

I’ve found Apple Maps to be virtually useless in India. Yes, I can get a map overview or satellite imagery, but directions and transit information are nonexistent. Building databases of all that information is challenging, to be sure, and it often means working with a lot of partners. But not being able to get simple walking directions to a nearby restaurant is kind of a nonstarter, so I’ve been using Google Maps, which works much better.

Not the first time I’ve heard this complaint. Interesting post.

Apple launches online tool to determine eligibility...

Two weeks after launching an iPhone 6s battery repair program, Apple has released an online tool that allows iPhone 6s owners to check whether their device is affected by the problem.

An updated page for the iPhone 6s repair program runs your serial number to determine whether your iPhone 6s handset is eligible for a free battery replacement.

A small number of iPhone 6s models manufactured between September and October of 2015 have a faulty battery, which can cause the iPhone 6s to unexpectedly shut down.

Eligible devices will be able to receive a new battery from Apple on the house should they exhibit the unexpected shutdown issue. Devices must be in good working...

Apple seems to want to fly things around to map things like street signs, track changes to roads and monitor if areas are under construction, the source said. The data collected would be sent to Apple teams that rapidly update the Maps app to...

Just Mobile says its $49.95 AluCharge is the world's slimmest USB charger. I’ll take their word for it because at just 0.72 inches thick, it’s is barely taller than an USB port. Still, it can charge up to four devices simultaneously (however, you’ll have to provide your own Lightning cables).

This makes it a great traveling companion if, like me, you often need to charge and iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch while on the road. Thanks to its “intelligent” charging, it delivers the right amount of power to iOS, watchOS and even Android gadgets. It provides 2.4A max per port. 

The AluCharge is finished in unibody aluminum, so looks good with Apple devices. It incorporates just the four USB ports on the front and the socket for the power supply to the wall on its backside. As I said, it’s functional, sleek, and slim (though the power outlet cord is almost as big as the charger itself...

Thirty Days and no iPhone reboot

I’ve always been fascinated by how long computer equipment can run without needing to be rebooted. I current have one very old PC running Windows 2000 (circa 1999) that has not been rebooted in over 700 days or about two years that is doing some small tasks.

With my previous iPhone (6 Plus,128GB) the most I could go without restarting the iPhone was about 12 days. At that point my iPhone would start to showing anomalies, including being unable to even answer the phone. It almost always happened at 12 days.

The limit I had seen on my wife’s iPhone 6s Plus was 57 days, at which point there was an iOS update. I think much of the difference is how hard I push the phone and test new software, whereas she mainly just uses her phone, and many hours a day during work she does not even check it.

I now have the iPhone 7 Plus/ 256GB model and was interested in how long this iPhone could go without a reboot before any anomalies showed up. I figured with the 3GB of ram the...

The Apple Daily Report for Dec. 1, 2016

The AWT News Update is on hiatus while my compadre, Steve, takes a road trip. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

Two weeks after launching an iPhone 6s battery repair program, Apple has released a tool that allows iPhone 6s owners to check whether their device is affected by the problem. An updated page for the iPhone 6s program includes an option to enter a serial number to determine whether an iPhone 6s is eligible for a free battery replacement. prove its mapping service and ensure that it stays up to speed with Google.

Gadget Ogling: Smarter Slumber and Pod-Free Coffee


In a previous column, I revealed how terrible a sleeper I am. My mattress is old, and there's a sizable dent on my side of the bed. It's probably time to find a new mattress, so perhaps it's time to consider one that connects with the rest of my home. Eight's smart mattress gives you a little more incentive to get out of bed, as you can set up a string of IFTTT recipes to improve your morning routine. The mattress's IFTTT channel offers recipes, for instance, that can start brewing coffee when you hit the snooze button, or turn down your connected lights.

The mysteries of the GPU in Apple's iPhone 7...

Users have praised the performance of Apple’s A10 Fusion chip in the iPhone 7, but its underlying graphics architecture may not be so new after all.

The GPU in the iPhone 7 uses a custom version of the PowerVR GT7600 GPU, which is based on the same graphics processor architecture as in last year’s iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, according to an analysis by The Linley Group, which specializes in semiconductors.

Apple has claimed that the A10 Fusion CPU is two times faster than its predecessor, the A9, and the GPU about 50 percent faster.

Benchmarking has revealed a mixed bag for A10 Fusion GPU’s performance, according to the analyst firm. Some benchmarks supported Apple’s GPU performance gain claims, and others fell way off. But the high levels of GPU performance are only temporary.

CBS today announced a new deal with the NFL to bring its coverage of the league to its All Access streaming service available across a variety of devices including iPad, Apple TV, and the web.

Starting this weekend on December 4th, CBS All Access users will be able to view all of the network’s regular, preseason and postseason games going forward.

Apple reportedly betting on drones and indoor data...

Apple has been working to dramatically improve its Maps app ever since it’s botched launch back in 2012. And it’s been successful: Maps is now packed with great features, thanks in part to Apple’s fleet of minivans capturing on-the-ground data. But it’s still not Google Maps, so Apple has a new plan.

According to Bloomberg, the company is reportedly planning to use drones to quickly update Maps with fresh data, like road conditions, street sign changes, and construction updates, and other information that car cameras would have difficulty photographing.

Apple now takes your old Apple Watch for free...

After upgrading to the Apple Watch Series 2, people now have another option for what to do with their old smartwatches.

This week, Apple added the Apple Watch to the Apple Renew program, which aims to get people to send their old devices to be recycled properly free of charge. But Apple is not offering store credit or a gift card in exchange for sending in an old Watch.

Typically, customers who trade in iPhones, iPads, and Macs via Apple Renew receive a credit for the Apple Store. For example, recycling an iPhone 6s Plus with 128GB can get you a $300 gift card, and sending in a working MacBook is valued at about $450 in Apple Store credit. It seems that the Apple Watch trade-ins, like the iPod, don’t receive anything in return—well, except for the peace of mind that you’re helping out the environment.

The Apple Maps experience today is dramatically better than it was when the product first launched with iOS 6 in 2012, but Apple is still looking for ways to improve its data collection and compete with Google Maps. According to a report from Bloomberg, the next stage in this effort is to use a fleet of drones from DJI, Aibotix, and others to look at street signs, track road construction, and examine other changes. It's not clear if these drones will replace or merely augment the data already being...

Marco della Cava, USA Today [WARNING: AutoPlay, Grrr]

Apple CEO Tim Cook rocks in his chair as he meets the question with an unyielding gaze.

“Of course corporations should have values, because people should have values,” says the soft-spoken tech leader, who has been vocal on a range of civic issues, from gay rights to privacy rules. “And corporations are just a bunch of people.”

Cook met with USA TODAY to discuss the company’s expanded corporate partnership with (RED), the 20-person organization founded by U2 singer Bono that has had an outsized impact on those suffering from HIV/AIDS by providing life-saving medicines.

This is a pretty interesting article, digging into both RED’s impact on HIV/AIDS sufferers and Apple’s position in the emerging political reality.

Mark Gurman and Alan Levin, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. plans to use drones and new indoor navigation features to improve its Maps service and catch longtime leader Google, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Cupertino, California-based company is assembling a team of robotics and data-collection experts that will use drones to capture and update map information faster than its existing fleet of camera-and-sensor ladened minivans, one of the people said.

Apple wants to fly drones around to do things like examine street signs, track changes to roads and monitor if areas are under construction, the person said. The data collected would be sent to Apple teams that rapidly update the Maps app to provide fresh information to users, the person added.

Apple is also developing new features for Maps, including views inside buildings and improvements to car navigation, another person familiar with the efforts said. The people asked not to be identified...

IDC: tablet market to rebound in 2018

This could be good news for the iPad: worldwide tablet shipments are expected to decline by 12% in 2016, rounding out the year at 182.3 million shipments, according to a new forecast from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker. The research group expects the market to rebound in 2018 though growth will remain in the low single digits as detachable tablets slowly gain traction.

"The benefits of a thin and light design combined with a touchscreen are bolstering growth in the detachable tablet market, but are also bleeding over into the PC market as slim and convertible-type notebooks gain popularity," said Jitesh Ubrani, senior research analyst with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers.
