Rumor: Unconfirmed leak points to 256GB iPhone 7, “...

The iPhone 7 rumors are coming in at full force following WWDC and an unconfirmed leak from a Chinese web site shows alleged iPhone 7 pricing that has a new 256GB model will almost retain pricing of the current top of the line 128GB model.

A new 256GB model would replace the current 128GB as the top of the line as well as live up to previous rumors of Apple seeking a higher storage capacity. The rumored pricing below is allegedly showing a lineup that would include 32GB, 64GB, and 265GB models for the iPhone 7 and 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB models for the iPhone 7 Plus and a new iPhone Pro line.

This isn’t the first time an “iPhone Pro” has been mentioned and would fit into Apple’s recent release of an iPad Pro as well.

BitTorrent Adds Music, Video Streaming Options With...

Dan Rys, reporting for Billboard:As streaming continues to consolidate its foothold as a major force in the music-listening community, more and more players are getting into the increasingly crowded space. Today, BitTorrent announced it is adding an ad-supported streaming option to its BitTorrent Bundle offerings, which is officially re-launching as BitTorrent Now. But before anyone thinks the company is throwing its hat into the ring alongside Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal (or even Netflix and Hulu), BitTorrent Now isn't designed as a full-catalog competitor. Rather, its streaming component will be part of the distribution framework established with BitTorrent Bundle in 2013, giving artists who use its direct-to-fan platform the option to allow fans to stream their releases rather than download them. BitTorrent Now is currently available as an app on Android devices, with iOS and Apple TV apps on the horizon "shortly," according to a rep.

Streaks: A hands-on review of the Apple Design Award...

One of the winners of an Apple Design Award at last week's WWDC event was Streaks ($3.99), and for good reason. The app does one job very well -- it tracks up to six tasks that you want to accomplish, gently nudges you to complete them, and then shows you how you've done each day.

The joy of this app is that it's not overdone or overcomplicated like most "to-do-list" apps. Instead of letting you set up a huge, unreachable grocery list of tasks that you're bound to never accomplish, it maxes out at six tasks. Each task can be assigned a well-designed, clean icon so you know at a glance what task you're looking at, and there are hundreds of icons to choose from.

You can choose to reach your goal on specific days of the week, a certain number of days per week (for example, I really don't need to check my blood pressure every day, so I just do it three times per week), or every...

New iTunes 12.4.1 glitch has been discovered

A new iTunes bug has been discovered that causes Apple Music playback issues related to tracks shorter than 60 seconds. MacRumors says it’s able to reproduce the issue on Macs running OS X 10.11.5 and iTunes 12.4.1. 

Specifically, when an Apple Music track shorter than 60 seconds is streamed in its entirety, without skipping ahead, the subsequent song in an album or playlist fails to play and appears to be in a state of perpetual buffering, the article says. The bug only affects tracks streamed through Apple Music, with songs and albums that have been stored locally on iTunes unaffected. The issue was unable to be reproduced on a Mac running macOS Sierra beta, nor on an iPhone running iOS 9.3.2, notes MacRumors.

Apple leaves iOS 10 beta kernel unencrypted, opens...

This is interesting.

According to users who’ve been testing the iOS 10 beta, Apple apparently left the operating system’s kernel unencrypted. Apple confirmed this on Wednesday, citing that the move was performed to streamline system performance.

An Apple spokesperson stated that because iOS 10’s kernel cache does not contain sensitive information, it does not need to be encrypted.

“The kernel cache doesn’t contain any user info, and by unencrypting it we’re able to optimize the operating system’s performance without compromising security,” the representative said.

Apple traditionally obfuscates the kernel in order to protect its prized operating system from unwanted probing or reverse engineering, potentially by nefarious agents....

What to do when your iPhone or iPad is stolen

Mikah Sargent, writing for iMore, with a heart-sickening tale:

On the night of Monday, June 13, someone stole my 12.9-inch iPad Pro from my bag during the annual Beard Bash event. I won’t go into the gritty details, but suffice it to say my valuables (as well as those of my colleague Serenity Caldwell) were in a secure location. Unfortunately, secure doesn’t always mean nothing bad will happen, and in this case, something bad did happen: My iPad Pro was removed from my bag, Serenity’s belongings were stuffed into my bag to make it look full (I guess), and the iPad Pro went bye-bye.

Terrible.

Since this movie chronicles the events leading up to the original 1977 Star Wars movie, it seemed pretty likely we’d see everyone’s favorite Sith Lord, but now it’s official. Hopefully Vader will make more than a cameo appearance because it would be frakking awesome to see him in ruthless bad-ass mode instead of the emo Vader we got in “Return of the Jedi”.

Bad ‘iPhone 7’ knockoffs continue hitting the web

We haven’t seen a radically different iPhone 7 design leak at this point yet, and that’s likely because the iPhone 7 or whatever Apple calls in this fall is widely expected to be another addition to the iPhone 6 series as far as design goes. But that hasn’t stopped the steady stream of bad knockoffs and mockups from surfacing online and in many cases being passed off as the real thing. Some of these iPhone 7 “leaks” are nice to look at but that’s about it.

Very interesting, all with some numbers to back up the logic and a peek at the Neil’s take on the post-iPhone future.

Apple has made encryption and user privacy a pillar of the iOS platform in recent years, but earlier this week, security researchers made a curious discovery: as reported by the MIT Technology Review, the operating system kernel in the iOS 10 betas released at WWDC last week is unencrypted. This makes it much easier to dig into the code and look for security flaws.

There was some speculation as to why Apple had done this or whether the company had even released an unencrypted kernel on purpose. After declining to comment initially, an Apple spokesperson confirmed to...

Petition urges Apple not to drop the headphone jack...

More than 300,000 people have signed a petition urging Apple not to ditch the headphone socket from the next version of the iPhone, notes the BBC.

Persistent rumors claim Apple plans to omit the 3.5mm socket to make their next smartphone thinner and more waterproof, with more room for the battery. Without a 3.5mm jack, the iPhone would use headphones with Lightning connectors and/or wireless headphones.

Of course, this hasn’t been confirmed by Apple (heck, the company hasn’t revealed any details about an iPhone 7). However, Sum of Us, a website "fighting for people over profits", which organized the petition, said: "Not only will this force iPhone users to dole out additional cash to replace their hi-fi headphones, it will singlehandedly create mountains of electronic waste that likely won't get recycled."

If you haven’t been paying attention to BitTorrent over the last few years and still equate the company with piracy, its plan to become a legitimate media company may come as a surprise. But BitTorrent, the company behind the peer-to-peer file-sharing protocol of the same name, just launched a streaming app that has already won over artists, musicians, and filmmakers. The app is available today on Android and coming soon to iOS and Apple TV.

BitTorrent Now emphasizes emerging artists, so content discovery is a high priority for the company. I’ve never heard of most indie bands from Brooklyn (despite living in Brooklyn), so how will I know which ones to listen to? BitTorrent has a team curating recommended projects inside the app, and there will also be a trending tab to see what’s popular with other BitTorrent users and on social media. You...

Some pundits paint the Apple Watch as a failure, but that’s not the case. In the first quarter of 2016, worldwide revenue for wearable devices surged 133% to nearly $6 billion (at retail) year-on-year, fueled by connected watches, notably as Apple Watch passes its first birthday, according to Futuresource Consulting

While Apple’s smartwatch sales aren’t up to some analysts’ early forecasts,  Apple already ranks among the largest watchmakers in the world in revenue terms, behind giants Swatch and Rolex, and ahead of Fossil, Citizen, Casio, Richemont, LVMH and other well-known heavyweights in watch making. This serves as a stark reminder of Apple's global reach and pull and how smartphones have redefined market success, in terms of scale and rate of adoption, according to Futuresource.

Whenever Apple FINALLY gets around to updating the 27-inch Thunderbolt Display, perhaps it will be even bigger and perhaps curved. Of course, the same could be said for an iMac update.

According to new data from the IDC research group, the presence of curved monitors is on the rise, with 1.2% market share in the first quarter of 2016. That’s not a lot of market share, but it represents year-over-year growth of 495%.

According to IDC, of the top 10 screen sizes, 23.8-inches wide and 31.5-inches wide saw the largest year-over-year growth, posting 91.4% and 183.2%, respectively, in the first quarter of the year. How about a Thunderbolt Display in two sizes? Or an “iMac Pro” with a 31.5-inch display?

Finally, monitors with TV tuners are expected to grow 1.3% year-over-year to 5.7% market share in 2017, up from 5.1% in 2015. Perhaps a future Thunderbolt Display and/or iMac will include such features.

Your finger’s location on the Apple Pencil would allow you to perform advanced device interactions. It would also support motion gestures such as running finer up or down the stylus to scroll.

 

The invention involves touch input that may include touch gestures in which a user's fingers move along the length of the stylus and may include rotational information indicative of how the stylus is being rotated between the user's fingers.

What iOS 10 can tell us about the new iPhone

There was a time when WWDC belonged to the iPhone. From the S cycle to the Retina display, FaceTime, and the App Store, some of the earliest iPhone breakthroughs were unveiled at Apple’s annual developer’s conference, with long stretches of keynote time devoted to specs and speed instead of software.

These days there’s a better chance of an Android app making an appearance on the big stage than a new iPhone. But even as WWDC has consciously shifted away from splashy hardware releases, the iPhone is still very much the star of the show. The iOS portion of the presentation is both the longest and the most significant, not just because it spotlights major changes and feature upgrades, but also in how it sets the tone and direction Apple’s next round of products will take.

Folks have been wondering why the iOS 10 beta kernel was left unencrypted. Now Apple tells TechCrunch that this was done deliberately to streamline system performance. 

“The kernel cache doesn’t contain any user info, and by unencrypting it we’re able to optimize the operating system’s performance without compromising security,” an Apple spokesperson said.

The kernel manages security and limits the ways apps on an iOS device can access the hardware of the device. “The lack of encryption in this case doesn’t mean that devices running iOS 10 are less secure,” notes TechCrunch. “It just means that that researchers and developers can poke around in the kernel’s code for the first time, and any security flaws will come to light more quickly. If flaws are revealed, they can be quickly patched.

Study: Third-Party Apps Pose Risks for Enterprises


Since mobile computing put an end to the good old days when IT departments had absolute control over software deployed in the enterprise, there's been a rise in employees' use of third-party applications -- a rise that poses security risks to corporate environments. That is one of the findings in a report CloudLock released last week. The number of third-party apps connected to corporate environments increased by 30 fold over the last two years, the firm reported, from 5,500 to 150,000 apps.

Still think that there's no room for growth or innovation on the Mac? Well, to the naysayers I must point out that there's plenty of room for both.

In 2005, market research firm IDC pegged Apple's share of the U.S. PC market at 4%. In the first quarter of 2010, that number had grown to 6.4%. In January IDC said the Mac’s market share had grown to 12.7%. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster estimates that for every half-percentage point of market share growth Apple boosts its sales by about $3 billion.

And unit sales of the Mac have grown even more impressively than market share. In fiscal 2004, Apple sold 3.29 million Macs. In fiscal 2015, almost 21 million Macs were sold.

What of new features? A few years ago, in a column for Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Arik Hesseldahl offered some ideas: "Future Macs may boast such features as embedded projectors that turn any nearby wall into a display for Keynote decks or the latest movie downloaded from iTunes. Apple...

There’s nothing eye-popping or revolutionary about the InCase ICON Sleeve with Tensaerlite for the 12-inch MacBook. It’s a solid sleeve that provides complete surface and side protection.

The shock-absorbing Tensaerlite bumper is molded and sewn to each side and provides impact protection while adding little weight to the laptop. Upper and lower compression panels are form-fitted to secure the MacBook. The “faux” fur lining kinda dusts off the laptop when it’s inserted or removed, while a magnetic closure keeps dust and debris out and your MacBook in.

The InCase ICON Sleeve with Tensaerlite unassumingly does its job well. However, at $69.95, it’s a bit pricey for what you get. (It’s also available for the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.)

Cloud Hybrid works well, but is a hassle to set up

Akitio's Cloud Hybrid — a hybrid enclosure that combines a personal cloud network attached storage and USB 3.0 direct access storage -- is a solid solution for those looking to store and share large files across a network. However, it takes a of tinkering to set it up correctly, especially on a Mac.
 
Akitio’s Cloud Hybrid attaches directly to the home network, providing access to all data within the home network. Equipped with an UPnP-AV media server, you can stream content within your local network to any available UPnP-AV and DLNA compatible devices. Data can also be uploaded to the network drive and shared from multiple workstations via SMB, WebDAV or FTP connection.

 
The Cloud Hybrid offers remote Web-based access for users on the road.  With the help of WebDAV, users can manage and view files in the Web browser or through Akitio’s free mobile app on an iPhone or iPad.  ...

Apple might be quietly preparing an assault on the...

On the surface, Apple TV seems increasingly focused on cable subscribers instead of cord cutters.

Since its launch last fall, the fourth-generation Apple TV has added several features that provide more convenient access to “TV Everywhere” apps (such as WatchESPN, FX Now, and HBO Go) that require a cable or satellite login to access. Siri is becoming more effective at finding what you want from these channels; the download process is becoming more streamlined; and with the next version of Apple’s tvOS software, logging into these apps will become much less of a hassle.

Apple says it intentionally left the iOS 10 kernel...

Earlier today we reported that the kernel of the first developer preview of iOS 10 is unencrypted – a first for any iOS version. At the time, we weren’t entirely sure if Apple had deliberately done this or if was an error and would get reverted in the next beta of the operating system. Apple has confirmed to TechCrunch, however, that making the kernel unencrypted was an intentional move.

Enlarge / Little ol' headphone jacks causing a big ol' fuss. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

As the rumors that the next iPhone will drop the 3.5mm headphone jack have intensified, I’ve been keeping tabs on the specific argument that Daring Fireball’s John Gruber made yesterday: that removing the headphone jack from the iPhone is the modern-day equivalent of removing the floppy drive from the iMac in the late '90s. It caused some pain at the time, but it was the way things were moving anyway and in the grand scheme of things it was a smart thing to do.

The people on the “get rid of the headphone jack” side of the debate normally choose...

Headphone Jack-less iPhone 7 Rumor Gains Ground


The rumor that Apple will get rid of the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 resurfaced Tuesday. Apple is expected to launch the new iPhone later this year. The iPhone's Lightning connector reportedly will do double duty as its charging port and headphone connector. The result will be a thinner device and better water resistance. If the rumor is true, the move "is right in terms of timing," said Jeff Orr, a senior practice director at ABI Research. "It comes at a time when Apple needs to demonstrate it's still an innovator."

Dropbox for Business users have additional scanning features at their disposal, including optical character recognition to convert scans into searchable text.

The best uninterruptible power supply (UPS)

A UPS is one of those unsexy things you don’t know you need until you need it. If you live in an area with spotty power or frequent weather-related outages (I live in an old apartment building that frequently has power outages for seemingly no reason), a UPS can save a lot of aggravation and frustration.

Notable apps and app updates for June 22, 2016

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

Mac OS X Apps/Updates

BusyMac has released BusyCal 3, an upgrade to its calendar app for Mac OS X and iOS. It displays calendars in day, week, month, year and list views and syncs with iCloud, Google Calendar and Exchange. 

Version 3 has been completely redesigned. There’s added support for travel time, which allows users to block out the necessary time to travel to an event location. Users can set a fixed amount of travel time or determine it automatically using the integrated support for Apple Maps and Location Services. Users can even receive alerts when it's time to leave as traffic conditions change.

The menu bar app in BusyCal 3 also received a makeover. It now displays a navigable mini-month calendar with...

Twitter Applies '140' Rule to Video Seconds


Twitter on Tuesday launched enhanced video services that will allow users to post longer videos -- up to 140 seconds. It also announced a new platform for celebrities and public figures to share their stories. Because sports, news, music and other videos increasingly are the type of content that goes viral on Twitter, the company decided to expand content parameters, noted Jeremy Rishel, head of product development for creators. "Video is becoming increasingly central to the real-time conversations happening on Twitter video."

Funzees with Munzees

You've probably heard about geocaching; it's a modern-day scavenger hunt that uses GPS and a website or app to let people get out and search for well-hidden logbooks and swag. Now I've been doing this for about 14 years, and there are some downsides to physical caches. First, if you are planning on deploying a cache, you have to plan on maintaining it as well -- keeping it up when water leaks in, adding small pens or pencils, changing out log books, and more. Second, there are places where caches are verboten, like many national and state parks. Well, there's a new game in town that does away with physical caches -- Munzee (free app, QR codes available for purchase). 

Munzee consists of QR code stickers that are placed just about anywhere. With the app...

Review: Element Case Ronin for iPhone 6/6s

What's a reasonable amount to pay for an iPhone case? While we generally give our highest recommendations to cases in the $25-$50 range, there are some excellent cheaper cases, as well. There's also a sizable segment of the population who sees cases as disposable — a quick search on Amazon reveals a number of very popular cases costing less than $10. Element Case has gone in the opposite direction with its Ronin, as evidenced by its $200 price tag. Ronin is made of top-notch materials — a top grain leather-wrapped backplate, machined bamboo or walnut wood side rails, and machined hand polished crowns. The case also comes with a top grain leather carrying pouch. Element Case makes no bold claims about protection or performance beyond basic impact resistance, as the materials and style are meant to justify the price.{/exp:char_limit}

External Link: Cartographic Comparison of Apple Maps...

Maps are but representations of reality, and how Apple and Google have interpreted that reality has led to surprisingly different representations of it. Former Apple cartographer Justin O’Beirne has started a detailed comparison of the two mapping systems, looking at how each shows cities, roads, and places (points of interest, if you will). O’Beirne is careful not to anoint a winner, but a summary of his findings shows that Apple labels more cities and Google labels more roads. Plus, while the two show a similar number of places, they have only 10 percent of their places in common, thanks to Apple focusing on landmarks and Google prioritizing transit.

NASA App comes to the 4th-Generation Apple TV

Space: The Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the 4th-generation Apple TV, its mission of unknown length, to explore strange new channels; to seek out new shows and new movies; to boldly go where no set-top box has gone before...

OK, so that was a little over the top, even for this blog. But I was pretty excited about the news that a NASA app has come to the latest Apple TV - so much so that I'm probably going to finally pull the plug on my "old" device and get the new box. 

What do you get to watch? Live streaming NASA TV of launches, a real-time view of the Earth from the International Space Station, and on-demand access to over 10,000 NASA videos. There's even more -- you can look at a library of over 15,000 photos individually or as a slideshow.

Even more fun: track satellites on 2D or 3D maps, and find out when the ISS or other satellites are going to be passing overhead. If you need an update on the Juno mission (arriving at Jupiter on July...

Since iOS 10’s first beta hit last week, testers have been seeing signs of Apple’s Search Ads in the App Store. Officially announced a week earlier, Search Ads were marketed as being a way to help customers “discover or reengage” with an application. Something I wondered immediately after the original announcement was how Apple would regulate the Search Ads in a highly competitive market. After having used iOS 10 for over a week now, I’m not any less concerned.
