In addition to Apple’s OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan update on Monday, Apple also released updates for iOS, watchOS and tvOS.

Nextworth.com, an online site that buys consumer electronics items for cash — is seeing a spike in people searching for Apple Watch trade-in prices. The report could mean good news for Apple, although it indicates that, while current owners are likely to upgrade, Apple still has a problem keeping devices on people's wrists long term.

Among the findings from the Nextworth study:

  • Two in three Apple Watch owners plan to upgrade. 
  • Eighty-eight percent of respondents reported wearing the smartwatch daily when they first purchased it, but within three months, only 45% did the same. 
  • Fifty percent plan to buy a smartwatch as a gift within the year.

The United States Army's Special Operations Command is ditching its Android phones for the "faster" iPhone, according to a report. The source cited in the story says that Android phones were freezing unexpectedly, which was one of the reasons they decided to give the iPhone 6s a spin. Gizmodo adds: The smartphones allow members of the Special Operations Command to access rich information about the battlefield. There's also quickly accessible information, like a weapons and ammunitions guide. Other apps can help with high altitude jumps; another can detect radiation. While DARPA helped develop the program on Android due to the operating system's open platform, Apple's hardware is apparently superior enough to warrant the switch.

The Index calculates the average for a sector or a custom benchmarking list. The performance of each company is displayed relative to the industry average.

Nico360: Tiny, live-streaming VR camera goes live on...

A lot of you know me as a huge fan of 360° spherical photos. I used to take them with some of the apps that are available for the iPhone (like Google Street View and Sphere), then graduated to the Ricoh Theta S camera late last year. Today a new 360° camera went live on Indiegogo, and it promises to bring a whole new level of portability and affordability to spherical photography. The Nico360 has already jumped past its funding goal with a little over a month left, and all of the initial Super Early Bird Perks (available for $99) are sold out.

That's OK, since you can still get one for $129 along with a battery pack/selfie stick. So what's so cool about the...

AARP Fraud Watch Network says scammers are pushing...

There’s a new scam that attempts to get people to pay back taxes by purchasing iTunes gift cards and sharing the code on the back of the card. AARP Fraud Watch Network is alerting consumers about this new scam and providing tips to help consumers protect themselves and their money against fraudsters.

A potential victim is contacted by an impostor claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service informing them that they’re behind in state and federal taxes, and that the potential victim will be arrested if they don't pay back taxes immediately.

The caller directs the potential victim to purchase an iTunes gift card and put the amount they supposedly owe in back taxes, and then call back and provide the 16-digit code that is on the card to complete payment. Finally, the con artist sells the codes on the online black market and pockets the cash.

However, the IRS only accepts checks, cash and credit cards as forms of payment. And Apple sells iTunes gift cards...

UBS: Apple sold 1.7 million Apple Watches in the...

Swiss bank UBS has issued a research note that projects Apple Watch sales totaled 1.7 million units in the June quarter, an increase of 100,000 units compared to its estimate of 1.6 million sales in the March quarter, reports MacRumors.com.

UBS forecasts that Apple smartwatch sales will rise to two million in the September quarter, contributing to a total of 10.35 million units in the 2016 fiscal year. If those estimates are accurate, that would make Apple Watch the most popular smartwatch for the second consecutive year, ahead of Samsung among smartwatches and only behind Fitbit and its fitness trackers in the broader wearables market.

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global smartwatch shipments grew 223% annually to reach 4.2 million units in the first quarter of 2016 (Q1 2016). Apple captured 52% global smartwatch marketshare, dipping from 63% share in the...

STM Atlas: A classy wallet case for iPhone 6/6s Plus

STM Atlas Wallet Case for iPhone 6/62 Plus. Photo ©2016 Steven Sande

When it comes to wallet cases for the iPhone 6/62 Plus that I've reviewed, there are some that have been both impressively useful and stylish, and some that were exactly the opposite. Today we're taking a look at the STM Atlas (US$34.95), a low-profile wallet case that looks great and provides protection for your big iPhone, all while not costing you an arm and a leg.

Design

The exterior of the Atlas is the most eye-catching feature. STM -- a company well-known for the excellent bags it produces -- used a textured fabric that has a good feel to it and looks quite nice, too. Inside, the case features a polycarbonate shell to hold the iPhone 6/6s Plus and has a microfiber lining.

One thing I've found with many cases like this is that they tend to pop open. STM uses two small...

Review: Are the Bragi Dash truly wireless earphones...

With it now looking all but certain that there will be no headphone socket in this year’s iPhone, demand for wireless headphones is likely to reach a new high. And when it comes to choosing a pair, Bragi’s Dash – marketed as ‘truly wireless smart earphones’ – seem on the face of it to be a very Apple-esque solution.

You can’t get much more minimalist than these. You have an earphone for each ear, and that’s it. No connecting cords, no neckband, nothing.

The earphones can also make a pretty good claim to living up to the ‘smart’ part of the branding, controlled by a mix of touch and gesture – such as nodding to accept an incoming call and shaking your head to reject it. For times when you don’t want to carry your phone, you can load music into the 4GB on-board memory. Which is handy when you’re swimming, as they claim to be 100% waterproof. And the carry-case has a built-in battery for on-the-go wireless...

Another major music streaming service is landing in the U.S.

Starting today, French music streaming service Deezer will be available to everyone across the United States. Unlike Spotify, however, Deezer is following services such as Apple Music and Tidal by offering a free 30-day trial rather than a dedicated free service tier. After that no-cost taste, prospective Deezer fans will have to pay $10 per month for the service.

Deezer already has about 6 million subscribers in 180 countries, including some in the U.S. When the company purchased Cricket’s free Muve streaming service from AT&T in early 2015 it began servicing those customers directly. Deezer is also available on Sonos and Bose speakers, and the French company acquired...

Software rot

512 Pixels:

There will be a day where some of my old machines will stop working. There will be a day where none of them work anymore.

As sad as that will be from a hardware perspective, it’s devastating in terms of preserving software. Old operating systems are sealed inside these machines. A dead Mac is really just a beige — or Bondi Blue — sarcophagus for the software stranded on its internal disk.

Preserving the textual contents of a document is one thing, but how do we preserve the experience? How do we save the applications and the non-textual data? Great piece by Stephen Hackett. Absolutely worth reading.

Tehran threatens to ban iPhones unless Apple...

The Japan Times:

In an ultimatum, Iranian officials asked iPhone manufacturer Apple Inc. to either officially register in Iran or have its products banned, a local news agency reported Monday.

“If Apple will not register an official representative in Iran within the next few days, all iPhones will be collected from the market,” Tasnim News Agency quoted the director of Iran’s anti-smuggling office as having said on Sunday.

More than 40 million Iranians are using smart phones, including millions of iPhone users, whose devices are often imported into the country by smugglers.

And:

For anti-smuggling purposes Iran has started a project, running under the president’s office, to ban smuggled mobile phones. The scheme, which will start later this week, will require all mobile phones to be registered with Iran’s telecommunications user database. Any that are not will not be able to be used.

Google’s futuristic new campus

The Verge:

Google’s grand plans for a futuristic new campus in the North Bayshore district of Mountain View, CA may finally become a reality thanks to a new real estate deal struck with LinkedIn. According to the Silicon Valley Business Journal, the two tech companies came to an agreement on a property swap that puts to rest a longstanding feud over lucrative current and unused square footage in Silicon Valley. Google paid $215 million for the swap, while LinkedIn paid $331 million, the report states.

In a nutshell, Google’s plans for their campus were put on hold last year when the Mountain View city council voted to award a huge tract of land to LinkedIn instead of Google. With the swap, Google now has the property it needs to push forward.

Politics aside, follow the various links to see pictures and video of this planned campus. To me, it’s like a science fiction fantasy. It will be interesting to watch this unfold. Looks like Apple, Facebook and Google will...

Apple Pay launches in France

Graham Spencer, writing for MacStories:

Starting today, Apple Pay is now available in France for credit and debit cards issued by Banque Populaire, Ticket Restaurant, Carrefour Banque, and Caisse d’Epargne. Apple’s website also notes that support will soon be added for cards issued by Boon and Orange.

Out of the 4 big banks in France, just BPCE is supported (Banque Populaire and Caisse d’Epargne merged to become BPCE in 2009). There is no word on when cards issued by the other three big banks (BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole or Société Générale) will be supported by Apple Pay.

Here’s a link to the official Apple announcement page (in French).

Apple has been toying with the idea of MacBooks with built-in cellular connectivity since 2007. Although Steve Jobs said a year later that the company had ‘considered’ it but decided against it at the time, the company continues to file patents for the idea, the latest one filed last year and granted today.

The patent describes how the gap between the main and lid section of a MacBook could be used to provide an aperture for what Apple describes as Isolated Cavity Antennas …

Patent report: Mac laptop with built-in cellular,...

Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product, so here are today’s patent highlights:

Apple has been granted apatent (number 9,397,387) for an “electronic device with isolated cavity antennas,” which hints at Mac laptops with cellular capability. The patent covers wireless communications circuitry that operates in long-range communications bands such as cellular telephone bands and, among the images accompanying the patent filing, is an illustration of a laptop.

Cellular modems in PC laptops have become commonplace. A Mac laptop with built-in cellular data would allow you to be connected all the time.

Another granted patent (number 9,397,844) for an “automated graphic user interface layout” hints at Macs that would automatically adjust on-screen colors depending on...

The 2 (two!) 2016 iPhone models are codenamed Sonora and Dos Palos.

Tehran may ban iPhone sales if Apple doesn’t...

In an ultimatum, Iranian officials asked iPhone manufacturer Apple Inc. to either officially register in Iran or have its products banned, according to Tasnim News, a local news agency — as noted by The Japan Times.

“If Apple will not register an official representative in Iran within the next few days, all iPhones will be collected from the market,” the article quotes the director of Iran’s anti-smuggling office as saying.

More than 40 million Iranians use smartphones, including millions of iPhones, which are often imported into the country by smugglers. A representative from the anti-smuggling office told Tasnim News that there’s no legal limitation to Apple registering a store in Iran.

The Iranian government plans implement a country-wide mobile phone registry in conjunction...

LaCie Rugged RAID and SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick...

As great as Apple’s tablets, smartphones and computers are, nothing’s perfect. All hardware eventually fails. Your iPhone or MacBook can get lost or stolen. Files can be corrupted. If any of these things happen at a time when backing your data up to the cloud isn’t an option, you’re gonna have a bad day. For a guy like me, who travels as he works, one bad day’s worth of lost data can add up to a ton of lost revenue.

That’s why I always pack some additional hardware to make sure that I can back up my files, no matter where I roam. And if the external drives I rely on also allow me to bring a long a whack of music and movies to keep me occupied while I’m on a plane or train? All the better! Depending on whether I bring my 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display or my 9.7-inch iPad Pro with me, you’ll find one of two backup solutions jammed into my backpack: LaCie’s Rugged RAID 4TB for my laptop, or SanDisk’s 200GB Connect Wireless Stick to use with my iPad and iPhone.

How to use Siri with your Apple Watch

Siri has proven to be extremely useful for iPhone users. I’m not as certain Apple Watch users are taking full advantage of it. But they should. Apple’s personal assistant can send your messages, place calls, get directions, and more using Apple’s smartwatch.

To get started, on your paired iPhone, tap Settings > General > Siri and make sure that Siri is activated. On your Apple Watch, tap Settings > General > Siri and make sure that Hey Siri is on. You also need to connect your Apple Watch or paired iPhone to the Internet using Wi-Fi or cellular data. 

(Yep, you’ll need an iPhone and Apple Watch combo to use Siri on your smartwatch. That’s one of the common complaints about the Apple Watch. We’ll see if Apple addresses the issue when their second generation smartwatch arrives. I predict we’ll see it announced in September or October.)

There are two ways to use Siri with your Apple Watch. The first is to hold down the Digital Crown. When the listening indicator...

tLights are good desk lights for iPhone and iPad...

By Aaron Lee

TLight's tLight S3 and S3x LED desk lights are good desk accessories for iPhone and iPad users. They offer true-color light output and charging dock for recharging iPhones and iPads with a Lightning connector. With the additional USB port the tLights can also recharge other tablets and most smartphones.

The tLights feature the latest LED technology with a CRI (Color Redding Index) of 90, which is close to the perfect light – sunlight with a CRI of 100. This means great color authenticity and a stable and bright light providing a great reading experience without getting tired eyes. Both tLights feature dimmers to adjust light output (20-100%) to a maximum of 600 lumens (7W) for the S3x and 700 (10W) lumens for the S3.

7 things you shouldn't do while playing Pokémon...

Most mobile games can be played quietly and anonymously in the privacy of your own home, cubicle, train seat, or bathroom stall—but Pokémon Go isn’t that kind of game. With physical movement as a primary gameplay mechanic, the Nintendo favorite is getting millions of people out and about and exploring their neighborhoods.

Obviously, there’s good in this: People are walking more, socializing with mostly-friendly strangers, and even overcoming anxiety and depression by leaving the house. All of those are tremendous benefits, and it’s awesome to see people getting so much out of the game.
