iPhone X, meet roller derby

[VIDEO] Serenity Caldwell is, secretly, a member of a top 10 women’s roller derby team. The iPhone X dropped the same day as the WFTDA’s annual international championships.

What better test for the iPhone X that to put it through its paces trying to capture some high speed flat track action?

Serenity’s writeup takes you through the specifics, but for my money, the real nugget of gold in her review is the pulse-pounding video embedded in the main Loop post. Those are some great slo-mo shots.

Be sure to bump the resolution up to 1440 in the YouTube window for best results.

How to master the iPhone X user interface

Since 2007, iPhone owners have been happily punching away at the Home button to do just about everything. It's what you use to wake up the iPhone, return to the home screen, ask Siri a question, activate Apple Pay, and even reset the phone if it's locked up. Well, that's all changed with the new iPhone X, which doesn't have a Home button. For those of you who have ordered an iPhone X and are waiting for it to show up, or if you're considering one of the sleek new phones, here's a quick look at the new gestures that are used to interact with the iPhone X user interface.

Wake up!

Remember all of those years where you woke up your iPhone by tapping on the screen? Well,  you can still do that with the iPhone X. Since the iPhone 6s, it's also been possible to wake an iPhone by just picking it up -- that's called "raise to wake". You can do that with the iPhone X, too. Another way to wake your iPhone X is to press that sleep/wake button on the side, just...

Nikkei is out today with a new report that one of Apple’s assemblers expects a “significant AR device” to launch by 2019. Similar to the news last week from another Apple supplier, today’s report doesn’t specifically name Apple, but expectations are starting to build for the company and a future AR device release even though Tim Cook has recently said “but today I can tell you the technology itself doesn’t exist to do that in a quality way.”

iOS 11.2: Third beta adds faster wireless charging,...

Updated 11/14/17: The third iOS 11.2 beta is available to the public, and brings a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth toggle explanation and faster wireless charging.

iOS 11 is the biggest change to Apple’s mobile operating system in years. It’s so ambitious in scope that many of it’s promised features still haven’t shipped yet. iOS 11.1 mostly fixed bugs and brought us a bunch of new emoji, but iOS 11.2 is more substantial, with the addition of Apple Pay Cash. Hopefully, it will also introduce iMessage in iCloud.

While the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X are currently limited to 5-watt wireless charging speeds, MacRumors reports the release of iOS 11.2 will boost that speed to 7.5 watts. The speed increase will require a charging pad capable of achieving those speeds, and not all are up to the challenge. A test showed that the Belkin wireless charger currently sold by Apple—which supports 7.5 watt charging—did charge an iPhone X running the iOS 11.2 beta…

Future iPhones may include a laser-powered, 3D-...

If you’re already growing tired of iPhone X2 rumors, a new report sheds light on a new feature that’s due not for next year’s iPhone but the 2019 model. According to Bloomberg, Apple is working on bringing 3D-sensing to the rear camera to turn the iPhone into an augmented reality powerhouse.

iPhone X already features a snazzy selfie camera that creates a depth map of your face to use with Face ID and animoji. Called TrueDepth, it relies on sensors that project thousands of dots onto your face to learn and adapt to the unique geometry of your face. But Bloomberg reports that Apple is working on something much more advanced for the iPhone’s rear camera.

Kuo expects Apple to release an updated 5.8” OLED iPhone with the same footprint and general appearance as the iPhone X alongside a 6.5” version that will likely serve as a sort of “iPhone X Plus.” But with…

Face ID is undeniably more secure than Touch ID in a random sampling of population. Apple says the chance of a person unlocking your phone with Face ID is 1 in a million.

However, that probability can be considerably lower for siblings, twins and children under the age of 13. A new video from a mother highlights exactly these limitations; she finds her 10-year old son can reliably unlock her phone using his face. Video after the jump …

Tip for training Face ID

Yoni Heisler, BGR:

One of the great things about Face ID is that the data associated with your initial Face ID photo is always being updated to account for even subtle changes in your appearance. That being the case, there’s an incredibly simple way for iPhone X users to train Face ID to work flawlessly across all situations. So if you’ve been noticing that Face ID works great 99% of the time but seems to slip up if you hold up your phone at an angle or from a new distance, we’ve got a solution for you.

And:

The next time you try to unlock your iPhone X with Face ID and it doesn’t take, don’t try to unlock it with Face ID a second time. Instead, enter in your passcode. Doing so effectively tells Face ID to incorporate facial data from whatever new angle or position you happen to be holding your phone in. That being the case, the next time you attempt to unlock your phone from the same position, your phone will unlock immediately.

This is a terrific tip...

Five ways Apple could improve iPhone X usability

∞ [VIDEO] Identical twins, Face ID, and that IR dot...

[VIDEO] Oliver Thomas has identical twins and an iPhone X. As you might expect, he made a video testing to see if one twin could unlock the iPhone X registered to the other twin.

The text went pretty much as you’d expect it to. But what I found really interesting was Oliver’s use of night mode in an old night-vision camcorder to capture the IR dot pattern put out by the iPhone X.

In the video, jump to about 30 seconds in and check out the spread of that pattern. It goes pretty wide, so much so that Oliver had to move one of the twins out of the spread to be sure he didn’t get a false positive.

The wide spread shows how far of a face detection reach the iPhone X has.

In addition, at that same place within the video, check out the pattern of the dots on the wall. They almost look like 5-pointed stars, rather than round dots. Is that just my imagination? Is there a shape to the dots beyond simple circles?

In the meantime, check the video for yourself...

iPhone X: The Android Central review

Daniel Bader, Android Central:

Apple calls iPhone X the future of the smartphone, but after using it for a week — and coming from months of Android use — I can comfortably say that it’s a really great phone. In fact, it is the best iPhone to date, and I’ve had a tremendous time with it, but it doesn’t drastically change my opinion of the iPhone as a product, nor of iOS as an ecosystem.

That’s not to say Google and its hardware partners can’t stand to learn a few things from the iPhone X.

Let’s cut to the chase.

As you make your way through this review, keep in mind that this is written by the Managing Editor of Android Central. I found it to be objective, but clearly told from the view of an Android user. Keep that in mind, but do read the review.

Unbeknownst to many, the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi toggles in the Control Center in iOS 11 don't do what you expect. Rather than completely disabling those features, they only partially disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. To clear up any confusion, Apple appears to have added explainer pop-up messages when either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi is toggled off, as first detailed in a report by MacRumors. The messages appear in the newest iOS 11.2 beta and they explain that both features will only be temporarily disabled when...

The Apple Watch can accurately detect hypertension...

Sarah Buhr, TechCrunch:

A new study out from health startup Cardiogram and the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) suggests wearables like the Apple Watch, Fitbit and others are able to accurately detect common but serious conditions like hypertension and sleep apnea.

And:

Sleep apnea affects an estimated 22 million adults in the U.S., with another 80 percent of cases of moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea undiagnosed, according to the American Sleep Apnea Association. This is a serious condition where the person affected stops breathing in their sleep and can lead to death.

The current process for diagnosing sleep apnea typically requires an overnight stay in a sleep center, where they connect an array of sensors to detect and track your sleeping and breathing patterns. Often, a breathing device is prescribed and fitted, with another overnight to verify that it is working correctly. Every element of this process is expensive, and (at...

Future Apple Pencils may be able to ‘capture’...

Future iterations of the Apple Pencil may be able to capture and represent the texture of a scanned surface, as evidenced by a new Apple patent (number 9,817,489) for a “texture capture stylus and method.” And, yes, I know that Apple says the Pencil isn’t a stylus, but that’s how the tech giant has described it in more than one patent.

According to the patent, the Pencil includes an image sensing and capture device to permit a surface to be scanned using the stylus. An image may be stored and displayed on an electronic device (just the iPad, so far) to represent the texture of the scanned surface.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that texture is an element of two-dimensional and three-dimensional design and is distinguished by its perceived visual and physical properties. Use of texture, along with other elements of design, can convey a variety of messages and emotions. 

For example, use of rough surfaces can be visually active, while smooth surfaces can be...

Forget the iPhone X and the iPhone X Plus, I already want the 2019 Apple smartphone. According to Bloomberg, Apple is working on a rear-facing 3D sensor for that year’s model. 

The goal? To make the smartphone into the leading augmented reality (AR) device thanks to both front and rear-facing 3D sensing capabilties. Apple is evaluating a different technology from the one it currently uses in the TrueDepth sensor system on the front of the iPhone X, according to Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the plan.”

The TrueDepth camera for the iPhone X works by using a projector to cast 30,000 dots on your face, which it then reads with an infrared camera. Apple already...

The Apple Watch retakes the lead in the wearable...

Apple retook the lead in the wearable band market in quarter three of 2017, with shipments of 3.9 million, reports the Canalys research group. It posted its strongest quarter so far in 2017, thanks to the release of the Apple Watch Series 3. 

Xiaomi and Fitbit, which shipped 3.6 million and 3.5 million wearable bands respectively, have also bucked the trend of the traditionally weaker quarter three by posting quarter-on-quarter growth. But despite the increase in smartwatch shipments, waning demand for basic bands meant the overall wearable band market fell 2% to reach 17.3 million units, according to Canalys. 

“Strong demand for the LTE-enabled Apple Watch Series 3 has dispelled service providers’ doubts about the cellular smartwatch not appealing to customers,” says Canalys Analyst Jason Low. 

Despite strong shipments, the Apple Watch Series 3 didn’t reach its full potential in quarter three, he adds. It...

You can customize Control Center so you can change the settings for the things you do most. Here’s how:

  • Go to Settings > Control Center.
  • Tap Customize Controls.
  • To add controls, tap the “plus” sign. To remove controls, tap the “minus” sign, then tap Remove.

Want to rearrange controls in Control Center? Just go to Settings > Control Center, tap Customize Controls, then touch and hold the three-horizontal-line icon next to the controls and drag them in the order that you want them.

Help keep your Mac’s drives healthy with DriveDx

BinaryFruit's DriveDx is a useful Mac solution for SSD and HDD health diagnostics and monitoring. It measures the overall health of both SSD and HDD drives. This allows users to take action to avert the failure, and save themselves from resulting data loss and downtime.

Unlike some drive health diagnostics utilities that simply check built-in S.M.A.R.T. status, DriveDx performs overall drive health diagnostics using drive health indicators (like SSD wear out/endurance, reallocated bad sectors, offline bad sectors, pending sectors, I/O errors, and more) that most closely correlate with drive failures according to the statistics reported in the latest researches focused on identifying drive failure trends.

This gives a user a comprehensive picture of a current drive health status and enables foreseeing potential problems with drive failure and loss of sensitive data. What's more, DriveDx shows this information on a user-friendly Mac-...

Rumor: Apple to release 6.5-inch iPhone X, 6.1-inch...

Because next year’s model is always critical, Apple is said to have three new iPhone models in the works for a late 2018 launch. Two of the new handsets are said to cross the six-inch threshold with edge-to-edge OLED and traditional LCD screens.

Assorted guru and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Industries issued a note to investors on Monday, stating that that Apple has a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone on tap for launch in the second half of 2018. This handset would presumably serve as a sort of “iPhone X Plus,” taking the general size of a Plus-sized iPhone and adding an edge-to-edge OLED display.

Kuo stated that Apple is also working on a new LCD model with a 6.1-inch display. Kuo stated he believes this model will target the low-end and mid-range smartphone markets.

It’s stated that the new model will “differ significantly” from the OLED models and will feature a lower-resolution display as well as be priced between $650 and $750. It’s also thought that this model will...

Hacker group claims iPhone X Face ID feature can be...

It’s been noted that Apple’s the iPhone X’s Face ID feature can be fooled by an identical twin. Now it looks like a mask might do the trick as well.

On Friday, Vietnamese security firm Bkav released a blog post and video showing that—by all appearances—they’d cracked Face ID with a composite mask of 3-D-printed plastic, silicone, makeup, and simple paper cutouts, which in combination tricked an iPhone X into unlocking. That demonstration, which has yet to be confirmed publicly by other security researchers, could poke a hole in the expensive security of the iPhone X, particularly given that the researchers say their mask cost just $150 to make.

The hack stands as a proof-of-concept for the time being, so the average iPhone owner isn’t at grave risk.

Bkav, offered the following comments:

“Apple has done this not so well. Face ID can be fooled by mask, which means it is not an effective security measure.”

In the following video, one of the Bkav...

Apple Could Launch Two New Full-Screen iPhones Next...

Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects to see two new full-screen iPhones next year: one will have a 6.5-inch OLED display, essentially making it a Plus version of the iPhone X; and the other will have a 6.1-inch LCD display, likely making it more like a full-screen version of the current Plus-sized iPhone. Both are said to have the notch. The Verge reports: In his research note, which was reported by MacRumors, Kuo writes that Apple is hoping to "satisfy various needs of the high-end market" by expanding its full-screen product line. At the high end will be the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone; beneath that will be an updated version of the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X; and finally, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will sit below both them. Kuo predicts that the 6.1-inch phone will be priced somewhere between $649 to $749 and be set apart by having a less-dense screen resolution, offering a worse picture. If Apple does introduce a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, $749 certainly seems too cheap for it to sell at...

New Emirates First Class suite

Uncrate:

Emirates unveiled its new first class suites for its Boeing 777 and the amenities surpass most luxury hotels. Inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, each zero-gravity seat is enclosed in its own cabin with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors for complete privacy. Everything from the 32-inch TV screen, lights, and temperature are remote controlled. For those not lucky enough to snag a window seat, each interior room is equipped with its own virtual windows that project the view from outside the aircraft using real-time camera technology.

I’ve flown First Class before but I can’t imagine ever being able to afford First Class at this level. That’s a real shame because I’m headed to Australia in a few weeks and the flight is literally 24 hours in total. I’d love this

Study: Apple Watch can detect hypertension, sleep...

A new study by health startup Cardiogram and the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) suggests wearables like the Apple Watch, Fitbit and others are able to accurately detect common but serious conditions like hypertension and sleep apnea, as noted by TechCrunch.

Cardiogram and UCSF previously demonstrated the ability for the Apple Watch to detect abnormal heart rhythm with a 97% accuracy. This new study shows the Watch can detect sleep apnea with a 90% accuracy and hypertension with an 82% accuracy.

The study of 6,115 participants was implemented to evaluate whether a novel deep neural network (DNN) can predict cardiovascular risk factors from off-the-shelf wearables with a photoplethysmographic (PPG)...

Despite initial skepticism, Face ID has turned out to be a widely praised and accepted, even after just a week of iPhone X availability. In a poll we ran over the weekend, 61 percent of readers said they have found Face ID to be an adequate successor to Touch ID and that they see it as the “future” of biometric technology.

We’ve already heard reports of Face ID making its way to the iPad Pro next year, but you also have to think it’s coming to the Mac lineup at some point as well. And that’s what I’m most excited about…

Wiped-out Kitesurfer Calls Coastguard with Apple...

John Willes told an interesting tale to The Daily Mail of London. Mr. Willes is a kitesurfer who recently wiped out a mile from the shore. In waters known for Great White Shark sightings. Which, you know, sucks. A half hour into his two-hour swim back to shore, he remembered he was wearing his Apple Watch Series 3, the one with a cellular radio. Being a considerate dad, first he called his family. Then he called back asking for the Coastguard number, just in case. Then, when a kick-in-the-water scared the bejesus out of him, he did call the Coast Guard. And better yet, when he saw the Coast Guard ship, he was able to call them to tell them to hang a left. Pretty cool, right? Personally, I wouldn’t expect to have much of a signal that far from shore, but his carrier apparently had him covered. “‘I’ve seen people put phones in waterproof cases but, didn’t want to risk it,” he said. “So when the Watch came out I thought this is awesome, I should do it. My wife was...

Google faces antitrust investigation in Missouri

Josh Hawley, a Republican seeking to unseat Democratic U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill in next year’s elections, announced at a press conference that he issued an investigative subpoena to Google. He expressed concern over the accuracy of the company’s privacy policy, allegations it misappropriated content from rivals and claims it demoted competitors’ websites in search results.

The first thing I wondered is if Reuters put the first line in because they think this is a political move. Regardless, Google will have to answer the charges.

Review: Advanced Audio GT-R

We've had the pleasure of reviewing a few of Advanced's headphones this year; this company seemed to come out of nowhere just recently, and in the intervening months has quickly turned out a varied product offering of IEMs, portable and Bluetooth DAC/amps, and even a Bluetooth speaker. Though Advanced started with affordable in-ears, this month they unveiled two higher-end offerings aimed at the audio enthusiast: the Alpha and GT-R planar magnetic headphones. Today we're taking a look at the soon-to-be-released Advanced GT-R, a compact over-ear with detachable cables. It's a well-built headphone and, though we think many will like its sound, it's a bit soft for our tastes.{/exp:char_limit}

Siri is steadily getting better with new features and improvements, but one place where the voice assistant could still learn a thing or two is how it pronounces city names. Siri tries its best to pronounce the names of cities based on their spelling, but this often leads to a comically bad mispronunciation that makes Siri sound like a complete out-of-towner.

Review: Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac

Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac was released a few months ago, and since then I've been using it to run Windows, Linux, Mac and even Android virtual machines on my 27-inch iMac. Parallels has been making great strides in providing a top virtualization tool since the first days of Intel Macs, and this 13th iteration adds a few features and hones performance. 

New Features

A lot of MacBook Pros with Touch Bar have been sold in the past year or so, and it's not surprising that Parallels decided to add Touch Bar support to Parallels Desktop 13. The Touch Bar support is integrated with Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Windows, as well as a handful of browsers including Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Elements that are pinned in the Windows Task Bar show up in the Touch Bar along with buttons for Cortana, Task View and settings. Other Touch Bar actions can...

AccountEdge 2018 is another big step in that direction.”

With AccountEdge 2018, detailed guides are available to help the transfer of key financial data and a $100 rebate is available for previous QuickBooks owners switching to AccountEdge Pro.

Review: Brydge 10.5 Keyboard for the 10.5-inch iPad...

Brydge has been designing keyboards for iPads for quite a while, so it wasn’t surprising to see that they were one of the few accessory manufacturers to release a new keyboard for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. In this Apple World Today review, I’ll take a detailed look at the US$139.99 Brydge 10.5 Keyboard.

Design

The Brydge 10.5 Keyboard uses the design cues from earlier models made by Brydge. By that, I mean that the keyboard features a pair of padded pivoting grips (see image below) that hold onto the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, turning the iPad into a small clamshell device. Think of it as a small laptop and you’ve got the correct idea. This is one of the few accessory keyboards for the iPad Pro that can be removed in seconds without having to wrestle with removing it from a shell.

Two of these grips keep your iPad Pro securely...

Bryan Chaffin is the Editor-in-Chief of The Mac Observer. He was born and raised in Texas, and it was in Austin where he met Dave Hamilton. In 1997, Bryan was writing for a website named Webintosh. Later, Bryan bought a half-intest in the publication. Soon he realized he needed someone to run the business side of the website, so he sold his half to Dave Hamilton and they rebranded it as The Mac Observer, launching on December 28, 1998. We reminisced about how an invitation from Bryan led to my first article at the Mac Observer in October, 1999. In the second segment, we chatted about two of Bryan’s notable, recent articles, iPhone encryption and Apple’s tax situation. We finished with a discussion of Bryan’s books, both technical and science fiction. Great stuff.

Security researchers say they used a $150 mask to break the Face ID facial recognition system that locks Apple's new iPhone X. The work may be a significant, it may be little more than a stunt with few real-world consequences, or it could possibly be something in the middle. So far, it's impossible to know because the researchers have evaded key questions about how they went about breaking into the device.

iOS 11.2: Apple releases third beta to developers

Updated 11/13/17: The third iOS 11.2 beta is available for developers. The public beta version should follow in a couple days.

iOS 11 is the biggest change to Apple’s mobile operating system in years. It’s so ambitious in scope that many of it’s promised features still haven’t shipped yet. iOS 11.1 mostly fixed bugs and brought us a bunch of new emoji, but iOS 11.2 is more substantial, with the addition of Apple Pay Cash. Hopefully, it will also introduce iMessage in iCloud.

Here’s what we know about 11.2 so far. What’s in it, when it’s coming, and how you can grab the beta right now.

Review: JBL Link10 Voice-activated Portable Speaker

Recently, we took a look at the Invoke, a home speaker made by JBL's sister company, Harmon Kardon. We liked the Invoke as a speaker, but didn't like its virtual assistant, Cortana. We talked to HR and, this week, we've got a new assistant in a new office — the JBL Link10, powered by the Google Assistant. We find that although the Link10 has a lot going for it, some limitations apparently caused by Google Assistant require us to re-calibrate what "portable" means. {/exp:char_limit}
