How to free up space on your iPhone in iOS 11...




As default capacities have grown on the iPhone over the last year, the immediate pinch of space has been eased somewhat for new iPhone users -- but, over time the digital cruft accumulates and stacks up. Here's how to use the iCloud Photo Library to shunt your valuable pictures to the cloud without deleting any forever, and how to prune down lightly used apps automatically.

Opinion: With one High Sierra feature, Apple isn’t...

One of the things I like about Apple is the company’s strong commitment to privacy. By making its money from hardware and chargeable services, it doesn’t need to rely much on advertising, and it can therefore afford to take a strong stand on the issue.

Indeed, the legal tussle with the FBI over the San Bernardino shooting was probably one of the best pieces of PR for the company. It demonstrated that Apple felt so strongly about protecting the privacy of its customers that it was willing to take on the might of the U.S. government.

Taking on the advertising industry is likely even better PR, but while I generally applaud Apple’s attitude, I think in one...

News: 4K Movies begin appearing on iTunes

Apple has begun offering a number of movie titles in 4K HDR ahead of next week’s Apple TV 4K, identify by a “4K” designation where “HD” was previously shown, as well as a “Dolby Vision” logo. In addition to selling content in 4K for the same price as other HD content, Apple has promised that users who have previously purchased HD versions of titles that are now available in 4K will be able to download or stream…

iPhone 8, iPhone X, and rapid charging

ZDNet:

As if laying out $1,000 on a new iPhone X isn’t expensive enough, Apple hasn’t even included the equipment necessary to benefit from its new fast-charging capability.

Ignore the “hasn’t even included” rhetoric and read on.

The feature is available in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X unveiled this week by Apple. It means a flat battery can reach a half charge within 30 minutes, which is as fast as new flagship Android devices that support fast charging.

Apple’s specs page for the all three devices says they’re “fast-charge capable.” But then, in fine print, Apple declares that it tested fast-charging on the devices with Apple USB-C power adapters, and lists its 29W Model A1540, 61W Model A1718, and 87W Model A1719 power adapters.

Bottom line, the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X will rapid charge if you use a 29W adapter, which you likely have if you own a MacBook or MacBook Pro with a USB-C port. Not certain of this, but I suspect...

The incredible architectural secrets of Steve Jobs...

[VIDEO] Lance Ulanoff, Mashable:

Apple explained that, yes, there were some interesting acoustics in the space, one that, incredibly, doesn’t have a single column to hold up the ceiling or to slice up the sound, but I might have noticed that there were no echoes during the iPhone X launch event. People, they said, act as a natural sound absorber. If there were a small gathering, though, Apple might choose to put a bit of temporary acoustic absorption up on the walls.

And:

What you see when you look at the Steve Jobs Theater from the outside is simplicity in the extreme. Inside, there’s no visible frame, pipes, wires, or speakers to break the illusion. The secret, though, is that it’s all there.

The carbon fiber roof is supported by the glass frame. Foster + Partner also hid the wires and pipes in plain sight. Twenty of the thin joints separating each glass panel house specially-designed water pipes for the sprinkler system, itself hidden under dozens of...

Creating a website sounds easy until you actually try it. While some tools make it simple to create sites, they don't necessarily have all of the features you may want on a trendy website.

4K HDR content begins popping up on iTunes

Apple has started introducing 4K HDR movies on the iTunes Store. You’ll be able to buy or stream the content on the new Apple TV 4K set-top box, which can be ordered now and is due to arrive next Friday — if you’re lucky.

Not all titles are yet available in the 4K HDR format and not in all regions. Apple is beginning the roll-out in the U.S. And, as noted by AppleInsider, notification of support isn’t yet system wide; some movies display "4K" and "Dolby Vision" icons on iOS, but lack those assets on macOS.

How the Equifax breach affects your enrollment in...

Lory Gil, iMore:

Recently, Equifax announced it had been compromised and as many as 143 million U.S. residents may have had their personal information exposed, including home addresses, birth dates, credit account information, and Social Security numbers. One suggestion from the credit reporting agency, as well as many banks and credit card companies, is to freeze your credit report.

A credit freeze is a way for you to restrict access to your credit report to protect you from identity theft. If you’ve put a freeze on your credit report, it doesn’t affect your credit score or keep you from being able to apply for loans. There are some caveats though.

If you’ve put a credit freeze on your credit report, there are a few things you should know about applying for your iPhone Upgrade Program loan.

This is worth reading, certainly for the specifics on the iPhone Upgrade Program, but also to wrap your head around the implications of freezing your credit report...

The iPhone 8, 8 Plus, Apple Watch Series 3, Apple TV...

Preorders start today for Apple’s iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the Apple Watch Series 3. And they see to be hot sellers already.

The devices show some widening shipping windows on the official site. Some versions of the iPhone 8 models show one to two weeks for shipping and some Apple Watch models show two to three weeks. The 32GB Apple TV shows shipping for Sept. 22, the same day devices hit stores, but the 64GB shows two to three weeks. 

At 5 a.m. (Central), I placed an order for an Apple TV 4K/64 GB and Apple Watch Series 3 (42mm with sports band). However, they’re not slated to arrive until Sept. 29-Oct. 3 and Oct. 6-13, respectively.

However, my Apple Daily Report compadre, Marty Edwards, was ready at 2 .am. (Central) and used the Apple Store app on his iPhone and purchased an Apple TV 64GB. It’s slated to arrive on day one of availability (Sept. 22).

Ad groups blasting Apple for Safari cookie blocking...

Ad Week:

The biggest advertising organizations say Apple will “sabotage” the current economic model of the internet with plans to integrate cookie-blocking technology into the new version of Safari.

And:

Six trade groups—the Interactive Advertising Bureau, American Advertising Federation, the Association of National Advertisers, the 4A’s and two others—say they’re “deeply concerned” with Apple’s plans to release a version of the internet browser that overrides and replaces user cookie preferences with a set of Apple-controlled standards. The feature, which is called “Intelligent Tracking Prevention,” limits how advertisers and websites can track users across the internet by putting in place a 24-hour limit on ad retargeting.

From the perspective of the folks whose living depends on ad sales, I do understand this anger. But.

From the perspective of the user, the ability not to be tracked is absolutely fair. I do not want to be tracked. Period. Don’...

Apple incorporates smaller battery into iPhone 8,...

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus batteries have actually gotten a bit smaller while retaining the same battery life.

Per filings with the Chinese government, the iPhone 8 boasts a 1,821 milliamp-hour battery, while the 8 Plus is rated at 2,675 milliamp-hours, according to TENAA listings noticed by leak source Steve Hemmerstoffer. TENAA is an agency similiar to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus batteries feature 1,960 and 2,900 milliamp-hour batteries, respectively. Apple’s website suggest that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 batteries sport “about the same” battery life statistics for talk time, video playback, and internet use, albeit the figures for the new phones don’t distinguish between 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi connections.

Apple has presumably shrank the battery to accommodate new internal components such as a wireless charging system. It’s also thought that the space savings may come from more power-efficient hardware, such as...

The rates for LTE service for the Apple Watch Series 3 have been announced and while they’re not exactly giving it away, the data plan prices aren’t terrible.

Verizon customers can look forward to paying $10 a month using the company’s NumberShare service. The carrier is offering the first three months free, for a limited time. Verizon also charges a one-time activation fee of $30.

AT&T customers will pay $10 a month under the NumberSync plan. The carrier is offering three months free (in the form of a $30 credit) and is also giving a $25 activation fee credit for eligible customers.

T-Mobile customer will pay $10 a month via their Digits plan with the carrier offering three free months, much the same as the other carriers. Customers can either pay the full cost for the Watch up-front, or split it into 24 equal payments of $16.67 (for the 38mm watch version) or $17.92 (for the 42mm version).

Too often we get wrapped up in our work — literally. Well, it's STM Cable Wrap to the rescue. 

If you're like me, when you're on the go, you have to lug around various power cords, chargers, portable backup batteries and other accessories for your MacBook, iPad, iPhone, etc. How many times have you dipped down into your backpack or purse and come up with a tangled mess that looks akin to Rapunzel having a bad hair day?

The $24.99 STM Cable Wrap is a simple organization solution for this problem. Made with water resistant fabric, it can be unrolled. Then cords can be folded and slid into pockets, while smaller accessories can be zipped into the large mesh pocket for safekeeping. When everything is in its place, you can fold the Cable Wrap back up, buckle it closed and be on your way knowing that you won't be faced with a rat's nest of cords and cables when you open it again.

Good news for the Apple Watch and Apple’s AirPod: the International Data Corporation (IDC) expects the popularity of wrist-worn devices – including watches and wrist bands – to continue to drive the wearables market forward. 

Meanwhile, lesser-known wearable products, such as clothing and earwear, will experience market-beating growth in the years to come. According to the research group’s forecast, vendors will ship a total of 121.7 million wearable devices this year, marking a 16.6% increase from the 104.4 million units shipped in 2016. The wearables market is forecast to maintain this pace of growth with shipments reaching 229.5 million units in 2021, resulting in a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.2%.

"We expect the most innovation and development in the wearables market to take place on the wrist," says Ramon T. Llamas, research manager for IDC's Wearables team. "It's the ideal location for users to collect,...

Apple has quietly raised the prices of the 256 GB and 512 GB iPad Pro tablets by $50. This applies to both the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+Cellular models, but the 64 GB models are unaffected. Some have speculated that the price hike is due to increased flash storage costs, but without an official statement from Apple, it’s impossible to say for sure.

Report: more than half of American consumers to...

More than half (54%) of US consumers expect to abandon using cash for shopping by 2020, according to Lost in Transaction, a new research report conducted by Paysafe, a global payments provider. 

The report uncovered the rapid move towards a cash-free economy with half (54%) of American consumers only visiting an ATM once a month and one in seven saying they rarely carry cash at all. With the research showing two thirds (63%) of people rely less on cash than a year ago, the move away from physical currency looks set to continue.

The study — undertaken in the US, UK and Canada — looks at attitudes to money and consumer buying behavior, and examines how cash is merging with digital formats. It reveals increased consumer confidence in mobile shopping, the start of a shift to new payment methods such as cryptocurrencies and the potential for retailers to lose relevance without the right payment mix for customers...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170264674) designed to make it easy redeemable coupons on iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that oyalty cards, identification cards, coupons, tickets, boarding passes and other redeemable documents are used by people every day when making purchases, proving identity, gaining access to events and when traveling. With the ubiquitous use of mobile computing devices, many of these redeemable documents have been digitized and are stored on mobile computing devices. However, Apple says that managing and accessing the digitized versions of these redeemable documents on the mobile computing device can be cumbersome and time consuming. 

What’s more, documents such as these are often transmitted to computing devices over a network. The redeemable documents can be embedded within content such as webpages, email, text messages, applications, etc. Embedded redeemable documents can be difficult to detect and...

Thoughts and Observations on the Products Announced...

Face ID as the Replacement for Touch ID

Apple made this decision well over a year ago. Perhaps the fundamental goal of iPhone X was to get as close as they could to an edge-to-edge display. No chin whatsoever. There were, of course, early attempts to embed a Touch ID sensor under the display as a Plan B. But Apple became convinced that Face ID was the way to go over a year ago. I heard this yesterday from multiple people at Apple, including engineers who’ve been working on the iPhone X project for a very long time. They stopped pursuing Touch ID under the display not because they couldn’t do it, but because they decided they didn’t need it. I do believe it’s true that they never got Touch ID working, but that’s because they abandoned it in favor of Face ID early.

I don’t know why recent supply chain rumors suggest Apple was scrambling to get Touch ID working on iPhone X as late as this summer, and no one at Apple seems to know either. Disinformation campaign...

Ad groups blast apple for blocking cookies in Safari

An open letter from six advertising trade groups criticizes Apple for a new Safari feature called Intelligent Tracking Prevention (ITP), which uses machine learning to identify and limit any tracking behavior in the Safari browser. Tracking can include third-party cookies and identification puts a 24-hour time limit on that behavior. 

According to Adweek, part of the letter reads: “Apple’s unilateral and heavy-handed approach is bad for consumer choice and bad for the ad-supported online content and services consumers love. Blocking cookies in this manner will drive a wedge between brands and their customers, and it will make advertising more generic and less timely and useful. Put simply, machine-driven cookie choices do not represent user choice; they represent browser-manufacturer choice.”

Apple's A11 Bionic Chip In iPhone 8 and iPhone...

MojoKid writes: Many of the new releases of Apple's iPhone bring with it a new A-series SoC (System on Chip) and Apple is keeping that tradition with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. Each of those handsets sports a custom ARM-based A11 Bionic processor with six cores -- four high performance cores and two power efficiency cores. The two power efficiency cores will perform the bulk medial chores to maintain battery life, which Apple says will be 2 hours longer than the iPhone 7. However, for heavier workloads, the chip is capable of not only firing up its four high performance cores, but also all six cores simultaneously. If early leaked benchmarks are any indication, the A11 Bionic is going to be a benchmark-busting beast of a chip. A set of just-posted Geekbench scores reinforces that notion. Just prior to Apple announcing its newest iPhone models, Geekbench's database was updated with a new entry for an "iPhone 10,5" which we assume to be the iPhone X. Based on the...

  • Would you believe the batteries in the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are smaller than those in the 7 and 7 Plus? They are, but still provide the same battery life
  • Apple Music will apparently be enabled in the Apple Watch Series 3 in October, and those who aren't Apple Music subscribers can always use iTunes Match

PSA: Google Will Delete Your Android Backups If Your...

New submitter Vernon Chan writes: It was discovered that Google will automatically schedule to delete your Android device backups if it is inactive for more than two months. The issue was discovered by a Reddit user after his Nexus 6P was sent for a refund claim. He was using an old iPhone while he waited for an Android replacement device. When he glanced at his Google Drive Backup folder, he freaked out when he noticed his Nexus 6P backup was missing. He then stumbled upon this Google Drive help document regarding backup expirations: "Your backup will remain as long as you use your device. If you don't use your device for 2 weeks, you may see an expiration date below your backup. For instance: 'Expires in 54 days.'" Once a backup is deleted, there is zero chance for recovery.

iPhone Upgrade Program FAQ: How to upgrade your...

Upgrading to a new iPhone is always an exciting process, but there’s one aspect that’s never fun: the cost. Apple’s latest crop of smartphones are the company’s most expensive yet, with the iPhone 8 starting at $699, the iPhone 8 Plus at $799, and the iPhone X at a whopping $999. Ouch! And that’s only for the base 64GB model—if you want more storage, the 256GB version will cost you more ($1,149 for the iPhone X, $949 for the iPhone 8 Plus, and $849 for the iPhone 8). Toss in an extra $129 to $149 for AppleCare+, and we’re suddenly dealing with some serious sticker shock.

Parrot launches new Parrot Mambo FPV race mini drone

Have you always wanted to try out drone racing? Well, today is your chance! Parrot, the French drone company, just launched the Parrot Mambo FPV (First Person Race) drone. It promises to be a compact, ultra-light, agile and fun to fly mini-drone, that also provides a First Person View (FPV) race experience.

We have not yet had a chance to try one ourselves but we’re hoping to do so soon and report about it here. If it is anything like the DJI Spark in sports mode that we did a first impression of earlier, it should be a lot of fun to fly.

How Many Ways Might iPhone X's Face ID Go Wrong?


When Apple unveiled its iPhone X on Tuesday, officials highlighted the device's advanced functionality, including what truly could be a game changing feature, its facial recognition technology. The new handset, which will sell for a whopping $1,000, allows users to unlock it simply by looking at it. The 10th anniversary edition of Apple's flagship mobile device is the first Apple handset to utilize Face ID, which works by scanning an owner's face via an array of cameras. Apple touted it as more secure than passwords or even fingerprint sensors.

Not surprisingly, it’s from Burberry, where Ms. Ahrendts used to be CEO. Today, she is Apple’s senior vice president in charge of retail.

Preparing for macOS High Sierra

We know that macOS 10.13 High Sierra is in Golden Master status right now, and the official release date for the next version of the Mac operating system is September 25. In this post, I'll describe some ways you can prepare for a trouble-free upgrade to High Sierra.

1 - Make sure you have a bootable backup

You know that Dennis and I are always hounding our readers about keeping up to date backups, and there's no better time than near a major update to macOS to ensure that your backups are ready to roll...just in case. 

One of the more useful things you can have on-hand during the High Sierra upgrade is a bootable backup that includes the macOS recovery partition. If your High Sierra upgrade fails, the only thing that might save your bacon is booting off of the backup drive in recovery mode, erasing your Mac's boot drive, and then doing a clean install of High Sierra onto that boot drive.

The only backup utility that can back up the...

Face ID: Info and opinions about the new...

Since Tuesday's Apple event, some additional information about the Face ID authentication used on the upcoming iPhone X has been uncovered. Check out these facts and opinions about the marquee feature of Apple's iPhone X.

Face ID didn't fail at Tuesday's event

Remember when Craig Federighi was beginning his demo of Face ID, picked up an iPhone X, and it wouldn't let him in? A number of pundits immediately jumped on this as a failure of the new authentication method, predicting doom for the iPhone X and Apple.

As usual, the pundits were wrong. Federighi immediately picked up a backup iPhone X and was able to continue with his demo. So what happened with the first device? As Apple explained it, apparently people who were setting up the demo equipment moved the first iPhone X several times, causing it to "look" for the face of the person who was apparently trying to unlock the phone. Since Face ID didn't "see" Craig Federighi after a few...

Apple Explains Face ID On-stage Failure

Apple has explained why its new facial recognition feature failed to unlock a handset at an on-stage demo (see around the 1:35:58 mark here) at the iPhone X's launch on Tuesday. From a report: The company blamed the Face ID glitch on a lockout mechanism triggered by staff members moving the device ahead of its unveil. Apple's software chief dealt with the hiccup by moving on to a back-up device, which worked as intended. But the hitch was widely reported. "People were handling the device for [the] stage demo ahead of time and didn't realise Face ID was trying to authenticate their face," an unnamed company representative is quoted as saying by Yahoo's David Pogue. "After failing a number of times, because they weren't Craig [Federighi], the iPhone did what it was designed to do, which was to require his passcode."

iPhone X Face ID fail: A feature, not a bug

Update 3:15 p.m. ET: Craig Federighi responded to a customer email about Face ID and confirmed that it works with sunglasses.

When the moment of truth arrived at the Apple event on Tuesday, iPhone X failed. During the world premier of the device’s lauded Face ID biometric security system, it took Craig Federighi three times to get face ID to unlock his demo phone. But don’t worry, Apple says. That’s supposed to happen.

When Federighi began the iPhone X demo, he naturally started with a locked iPhone. “Unlocking it is as easy as looking at it and swiping up,” he said, hoping to magically unlock the phone to whoops and cheers from the audience like when Steve Jobs swiped to unlock the original iPhone. Except that didn’t happen.
