News: Apple releases fourth iOS 9.1 beta, third tvOS...

Less than a week after the last iOS 9.1 beta release, Apple has now released a fourth beta of iOS 9.1 to developers. iOS 9.1 appears to be primarily focused on adding developer-level support for features such as 3D Touch and Live Photos on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, with this latest beta focusing on fixing a number of issues from prior betas. Registered iOS developers can download the iOS 9.1 beta from Apple’s Developer site; a public version…

Rock Jaw Alfa Review: Replace your EarPods with...

The Rock Jaw Alfa Genus V2 headphones ($49.90) are not especially meant as a replacement for EarPods, but that’s how I see them. Apple’s bundled EarPods have a lot of positives. They are ‘cheap’, lightweight and small. You can chuck them in a bag or pocket without worrying too much. This is in stark contrast to Beats on-ear and over-ear headphones, for example, which are expensive, bulky and heavy. However, EarPods leave much to be desired in regard to sound quality.

It turns out the Rock Jaw Alfa’s fill this gap nicely. They have the same portability as EarPods but with a focus on also providing great sound to listen to. They aren’t...

Adobe Lays Out a Feast at Its MAX Picnic

Adobe raised the curtain on two mobile apps and a basket of product upgrades at its MAX conference in Los Angeles. Both new apps -- Photoshop Fix and Capture CC -- are free, but they initially will be available only to users of Apple's mobile devices. Photoshop Fix includes some commonly used Photoshop features -- exposure, contrast and saturation control, as well as object and blemish removal. It also has a tool for altering parts of a face. For example, you can widen eyes, suggest a smile, or perform a virtual rhinoplasty on a visage.

Apple fixes app slicing issue with iOS 9.0.2 update...

Well, there’s good news if you’re developing iOS apps.

Apple has just announced that its app slicing issue has been fixed. This will allow for device-specific versions of apps to be delivered when downloaded by users running iOS 9.0.2 or later.

For those of you unfamiliar with app slicing, this is a delivery method that allows for the optimal installation of an iOS or watchOS app to be delivered to a user’s particular device, with minimal footprint. This optimization, called app thinning, lets developers create apps that use the most device features, occupy minimum disk space, and accommodate future updates that...

After months of floundering to find a new CEO and shore up its user base, Twitter is having the best week ever. First, the publishing platform confirmed that cofounder Jack Dorsey is retaking the helm as CEO of the company he created. Now Twitter is officially rolling out a feature that will make it much easier for people to find the best and most important tweets of the day without having to hunt for them.

Microsoft acknowledges crashes under OS X 10.11 El...

The good news is that Microsoft has acknowledged the massive crashes between Office for Mac 2016 and the newly-released OS X 10.11 El Capitan.

The bad news is that they don’t have an estimated timeline for a fix.

In an emailed statement, a Microsoft spokeswoman said the company is looking into the problem.

“We know that some users may be experiencing issues with Office 2016 for Mac running on El Capitan,” the statement read. “We are actively investigating the matter with Apple. Until there is a fix, we recommend people install the latest updates to Office 2016 for Mac using Microsoft AutoUpdate.”

Why is there no News app for El Capitan?

iOS 9 added a News app (think of it as Apple's version of Flipbook and Zite). A companion app for Mac OS X El Capitan would seem like a natural, but it's nowhere to be found. 

In iOS 9, News compiles articles you've expressed interest in from several sites.  Stories are pulled from a range of sources, from top news organizations to indie publications. Stories are chosen for you based on what you like to read. Apple says that the more you use News, the better it gets at picking out just what you’ll want to see. 

You can share articles with others and save them to read later. Thanks to iCloud, stories are saved on all your iOS devices, so you can start reading something on your iPhone and pick it up later on your iPad. It would be nice to also be able to do this with a Mac.

You can set up News to provide a continuously updated feed of stories that are collected based on your likes and...

To commemorate Jobs’ life and legacy, several Apple executives, including Apple CEO Tim Cook, penned personal remembrances that were posted on AppleWeb, Cupertino’s internal news website.

“He was unselfish in the face of his own mortality,” wrote Cook, recalling his last days with the iconic Apple co-founder. Cook shared how he had offered Jobs a portion of own liver for a donor liver transplant, but Jobs refused.

“Even when his outlook was bleak and he had every right to accept help, he refused, rather than put a friend’s health at risk,” Cook continued. “He put his compassion for me above his own needs, and I will never forget it.”

If you've installed Mac OS X El Capitan, you may have discovered that the Secure Empty Trash feature is missing and it doesn't seem as if you can get it back.

A support page on the security content of El Capitan says: "An issue existed in guaranteeing secure deletion of Trash files on some systems, such as those with flash storage. This issue was addressed by removing the Secure Empty Trash option."

Previously, if you wanted to delete files that contain sensitive information, you could use Secure Empty Trash. Files deleted in that way were completely overwritten by meaningless data.

Want to make Apple Watch bands? Official band lugs...

It didn't take long for a lot of accessory manufacturers to jump on the Apple Watch bandwagon with everything from cheap silicone band knockoffs to more pricy and stylish leather straps. But now, a third-party distributor -- Avnet -- is selling Apple authorized "Made for Apple Watch" lugs that manufacturers can (and probably should) use for their Watch bands.

All of the lugs are made of stainless steel, have the phrase "Made for Apple Watch" etched onto them, and require a special pentalobe screwdriver ($12.65 each) to assemble. They're available in 38 and 42mm versions in lots of either 25 or 200 -- 25 38mm lugs will cost you $278.75 if you wish to go into the band manufacturing business, or up to $1866 for 200 of the 45mm lugs.

New iOS malware mainly affects users in China

Over the weekend, security site Palo Alto Networks reported a new iOS malware that's can infect non-jailbroken Apple devices using enterprise certificates and private APIs[application programming interfaces]. It's apparently infected at least 100 Apple App Store apps.

“Although the specific behaviors of this malware are fairly unique, it still is no more able to install itself invisibly than any other iOS malware to date,” says Mac security expert, Thomas Reed, director of Mac Offerings at Malwarebytes, provider of an user-installed anti-malware solution. “It's signed with an enterprise provisioning profile, so the user must accept its installation. Two aspects of this are concerning. One is the difficulty of removing the malware. I'd recommend a full factory reset of the phone to be 100% sure everything is wiped."

Just Mobile's Quattro Folio ($45) is a leather folio case for iPhone 6s — while Just Mobile notes that the case will fit both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, it's being marketed as a 6s case on the company's website. Like many folio cases, Quattro Folio doesn't offer button coverage. Unfortunately, Quattro doesn't offer much coverage, period, leaving all corners of the phone and nearly the entire left side exposed when the iPhone 6s' screen is in use.

Apple has apparently purchased VocalIQ, a startup located in the UK that has “developed a self-learning dialogue API built on 10 years of natural language research, belief tracking, decision making, and message generation.”

Albeit no one has said how Apple plans to use VocalIQ’s assets, it’s thought that VocalIQ’s API can help improve Siri. It’s also thought that Apple could use the technology for its upcoming car project, as VocalIQ specialized in in-car applications among other things, as the company has collaborated with General Motors in the past. .

Second-generation Philips Hue Bridge supports...

One of the first home automation products to make it into Apple Stores was Philips Hue lighting. App-controlled, Philips Hue showcased many of the promises of home automation, while also pointing out the issues inherent in a market without standards. Apple hopes to get home automation device manufacturers marching in sync towards a Siri-controlled future through its HomeKit framework, and today Philips helped out by introducing the second-generation Hue Bridge (US$59.99).

The Bridge is compatible with both HomeKit and Siri, and works with other connected home platforms as well. Philips Lighting CEO Eric Rondolat noted that "Lighting is the most accessible aspect of the connected home, and as the lighting expert for the Internet of Things we are taking connected lighting to the next phase. By integrating Philips Hue with Apple HomeKit, we are broadening people's experience of light beyond what has...

Matt Gemmell on ad blocking

Matt is in a unique position to write about this debate:

I’m on both sides of this debate.

Let’s get the obvious argument out of the way: if you block ads, you’re depriving sites of revenue they presumably need in order to continue running, and if too many people do that, those sites are likely to go away. The reality is more complicated, but the argument is essentially sound – all other things being equal, and unchanged.

Digital or physical books

Craig Mod on his reading habits:

But in the past two years, something unexpected happened: I lost the faith. Gradually at first and then undeniably, I stopped buying digital books. I realised this only a few months ago, when taking stock of my library, both digital and physical. Physical books – most of all, works of literary fiction – I continue to acquire voraciously. I split my time between New York and Tokyo, and know that with each New York trip I’ll pick up a dozen or more volumes from bookstores or friends.

First look: Using Apple’s new Audio Unit plug-ins in...

With iOS 9 released late last month, Apple introduced a full-fledged audio plug-in framework for the first time on its mobile devices, allowing iPhone and iPad apps to implement support for third-party audio plug-ins just like on a Mac.

In fact, the audio plugin framework comes in the form of Audio Unit version 3, an updated version of the file type Apple has long used on the Mac for audio plug-ins in professional-class apps like Logic Pro.

Now that iOS 9 is available to all, we took the feature for a test drive using a couple of the very first apps to update with support...

Storm Apple Watch companion app: A great reason to...

Weather nerds unite! There's now a compelling reason to have not only your own weather station (you do have one, don't you?), but an Apple Watch as well. Weather Underground's Storm app now has an Apple Watch companion you can use to see conditions at your station or one nearby with a few taps. That's a screenshot of the Storm app from my Watch.

Of course, getting your own weather station can be even more expensive than buying an Apple Watch. The Internet-attached station I have is a Rainwise MK-III package (image below) that retails for US$1268, or even more for a long range version that allows the station sensors to be further away from your Internet connection.

Review: Chromecast Audio brings new life to dated...

I’m an Apple guy. I have enough Apple hardware around my house to serve as a mini-museum and I use Apple’s software and services every single day. But when Google makes something interesting like Chromecast Audio, I can’t help but want to try out the new toy.

Sold for just $35 (Google Store, Best Buy), Chromecast Audio lets you stream audio over the Internet from services like Spotify and NPR to old speakers. This varies from Apple’s AirPlay in that audio streams directly to the Chromecast Audio rather than from device to device, using your iPhone or iPad only as the remote. In practice, Chromecast Audio is most similar to Sonos, but with Google’s accessory selling at a much lower, irresistible price as it relies on your...

Review: X-Doria Defense Lux for iPhone 6s/6

X-Doria's Defense Lux ($60) case for iPhone 6s/6 is a more premium version of the "bumper around a case" option that we've seen more of recently. In X-Doria's edition, a rubber and polycarbonate case is bolstered by an aluminum outer frame. The hinged frame locks onto an iPhone 6 or 6s — it barely stretches around the iPhone 6s' slightly larger body. Defense Lux has a soft, slightly puffy backing. Button coverage is present for the sleep/wake button and volume controls. The case comes in four different colors; we received the "black carbon" option.{/exp:char_limit}

Research group: Apple Pay will grow slowly for the...

Researcher Aite Group says that Apple Pay, which marks its one-year anniversary this month, has failed to catch on with consumers, accounting for only one percent of all retail transactions in the U.S., reports Bloomberg Business

The service has reportedly suffered from a lack of promotion and limited number of terminals available in stores. Plus Apple Pay is only available on newer iPhones.

“People don’t know why it is they’d use Apple Pay,” Jared Schrieber, CEO of InfoScout, a shopper-research firm, told Bloomberg Business. “They are satisfied with the current methods and they don’t know how Apple Pay works.”

More than 75 percent of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users hadn’t tried the service as of April, according to...

Apple Pay 1 year in: Slow to grow, but 'off to...

Tech companies have been trying to make mobile payments happen for years, and when Apple entered the space last October with Apple Pay, it seemed like paying for things with your phone might actually become a daily occurrence.

But Apple Pay adoption is still slow going a year after its launch, according to new reports. The service is barely a blip on the retail radar, accounting for about 1 percent of total transactions in the U.S., according to research firm Aite Group.

The Wall Street Journal dug up numbers from various retail chains and analysts that seem to back up that figure: At Panera, Apple Pay usage is in the “low single digits,” while Firehouse Subs says the service accounts for 2 percent of all transactions. (Panera did say that...

News: Apple Pay transaction numbers still low overall

A year after Apple Pay’s launch, the digital payment system is only accounting for 1 percent of U.S. retail transactions, Bloomberg reports. Apple Pay has suffered from a lack of promotion and limited support from retailers, but at Panera Bread — an early adopter of the new pay format — the percentage of Apple Pay transactions is in the low single digits. Even within Panera’s iOS app that lets users order from their iPhone, Apple Pay…

The classic Single Tour band is available in both 38mm and 42mm sizes in brown and black. The Double Tour band — which wraps around the wrist twice — is only available in 38mm, but also comes in red…

Apple TV aims open its universal search to all apps

When the new Apple TV launches later this month, its universal search features will only work with a select number of apps. But it’s not going to stay that way forever.

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently told BuzzFeed that Apple plans to offer an API for universal search, so that any app can feed into the results. “I think that many, many people will want to be in that search. And that’s great for users,” Cook said.

At launch, Siri’s search results will come from five streaming services: iTunes, HBO, Hulu, Netflix, and Showtime. That’s a fairly short list, and one that leaves out some major sources such as YouTube, Crackle, Watch ABC, and PBS.

Well, this is a giant mess.

“This is beyond the Pale. We basically can’t use Office on our computers,” wrote one user on the longest thread related to the crash problem.

Users have complained of apparently random crashes since the update, the discussion thread regarding the issues currently running for more than 140 pages.

Where Office 2016 was shipped in early July, the complaints discussion thread has exploded since the release of OS X 10.11 El Capitan...

On October 9, the movie "Steve Jobs" -- directed by Danny Boyle and scripted by Aaron Sorkin from the biography by Walter Isaacson -- opens at theaters nationwide. With a crop of films about the Apple co-founder having been released over the past four years since Jobs' death, many have felt that the movies tend to focus on the negatives of the man rather than what he accomplished in his lifetime. Sadly, it appears that even his close friends and family can't agree on whether they like or hate the upcoming movie.

First, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Jobs' widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, tried to block the production of the movie repeatedly, saying that the movie and others focus on Jobs as being...

The Apple expansion continues.

In recent weeks, it’s been discovered that Apple has leased another major project in Sunnyvale — a two-building, 215,000-square foot office park that’s wrapping up construction at North Mathilda Ave. and W. Maude Ave. The project, from Christensen Holdings, is in a business district that’s already thick with Apple outposts.

This is not a completely new change, as the Mathilda Tech Center in Sunnyvale is located in a thick of office buildings already occupied by Apple.

It’s expected that Apple will continue to lease buildings in this segment of Sunnyvale, known as “Peery Park”.

Also, Apple is likely to...

An anonymous reader writes: Malware called YiSpecter is infecting iOS devices belonging to Chinese and Taiwanese users, and is the first piece of malware that successfully targets both jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices, Palo Alto Networks researchers warn. What's more, the techniques it uses for hiding are making it difficult to squash the infection. YiSpecter's malicious apps were signed with three iOS enterprise certificates issued by Apple so that they can be installed as enterprise apps on non-jailbroken iOS devices via in-house distribution. Through this kind of distribution, an iOS app can bypass Apple's strict code review procedures and can invoke iOS private APIs to perform sensitive operations.

Apple tops Interbrand's "Best Global Brands" list for the third time. The company has appeared on Interbrand's Best Global Brand ranking since 2000, when the ranking first debuted.

In 2000, Apple ranked #49 and had a brand value of US $5.5 billion. Today, Apple's brand value is $170.3 billion. 

Other companies in the top 10 are Google, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, IMB, Toyota, Samsung, GE, and McDonald's. Valuation is calculated based on a company's financial performance, a brand's ability to influence customer purchases, and the extent to which it can support premium pricing.

Apple has declared that Apple Pay is off to a “great start” almost a year after its launch with the company seeing steady growth in Apple Pay transactions every month. In a statement to Bloomberg, the company said:

“We’re off to a great start and we are seeing continued, double-digit monthly growth in Apple Pay transactions since launch,” Apple said in an e-mailed statement.

Apple Pay launched last year with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the US. The service expanded to the UK a few months ago. In Apple’s January investor call, Cook claimed 2015 was “the year of Apple Pay”. However, Bloomberg notes that not everyone is as thrilled with...

Prong’s first iPhone cases had no batteries, but included wall plugs so you could recharge wherever you found a standard wall outlet. Then it took the next logical step and...
