Apple prevents beta testers from punishing...

Developers working to make their apps compatible with iOS 9 now can’t be penalized for glitches that beta testers experience. In the fourth developer beta of iOS 9 that Apple pushed out on Tuesday, testers are no longer able to submit reviews in the App Store.

The change, first noticed by AppleInsider, is a welcome one for app developers. Until now, reviewers using beta versions of iOS have been able to leave critical reviews of apps not optimized for the beta software. This is detrimental to developers because users running the current version of iOS wouldn’t necessarily experience crashes or other problems associated with less stable beta software.

Report: Apple Watch sales took an estimated 75% of...

New data from research firm Strategy Analytics shows that Apple’s introduction into the smartwatch market made a dramatic shift in both the overall size of the market and which companies are on top.

According to the firm’s data, Apple claimed a massive 75.5% of the global smartwatch marketshare in Q2 2015 with the launch of the Apple Watch in late April. It also shows that Apple’s entrance stole a huge portion of Samsung’s marketshare as the previous smartwatch market leader dropped 66 points from 73.6% marketshare to a single digit 7.5% … 

Strategy Analytics also highlights the year-over-year growth of the global smartwatch market at 457.3% from Q2 2014 before...

News: Microsoft releases email messaging app for iOS

Microsoft has released its slimmed-down email messaging app, called Send, on iOS devices. Plans for the app leaked in May under the name Flow by Outlook, but despite the new name, details about the hybrid email/instant messaging app have remained mostly the same. The app works with Office 365 business and school email accounts, allowing users to send quick messages to any email address without bothering with the subject lines or signatures found in…

Apple changes policy, iOS 9 beta users now prevented...

Well, this is kind of a kick in the teeth.

As of the latest iOS 9 beta, Apple is preventing beta users from submitting app reviews.

Testers running Apple’s fourth iOS 9 beta, currently for developers only, are able to access the iOS App Store as usual, but no longer have the ability to post reviews. Attempting to do so now results in an error pop-up that reads, “This feature isn’t available. You can’t write reviews while using a prerelease version of iOS.”

The change is thought to have come about given that many public beta users might not be familiar with how operating system betas can be incompatible with an app that might be run on them...

Apple disables App Store reviews from devices...

As of yesterday, when the fourth developer beta of iOS 9 was issued to testers, those running a prerelease version of the operating system can no longer leave app reviews in the App Store. Negative app reviews left by beta testers is a perennial problem for app developers (as highlighted well in this post over on MacStories), and it's nice to see Apple taking steps to fix it even though OS X El Capitan beta testers can still leave app reviews as of this writing.

Up until now, users testing new iOS versions could leave bad reviews for apps that didn't work correctly under the new OS. The problem with this, of course, is that developers can't submit apps targeting the new OS until the software (and the development tools) are finalized. That leaves a three-or-so-month gap between when users can get the software and when developers can fix...

The new TripMode utility lets you allow only specified apps to access the Internet, blocking bandwidth-hungry software like Dropbox that might chew data in the background.

This is Nifty: QuickShot

The mighty Jason O’Grady threw this out there as a cool thing worth looking into.

He might have a point.

QuickShot allows you to manage, view and share screenshots taken within OS X, making your images immediately draggable from your menubar.

Once an image has been taken, it can be shared through email, web links, social media and the like.

QuickShot is available for free and requires OS X 10.10 or later to install and run.

Microsoft has today launched Send, an experimental iPhone app that offers a kind of cross between email and instant messaging. Microsoft says that it is designed for “brief, snappy communications” where you want an instant response but also want to retain a record of what was said within Outlook. The app was previously leaked as Flow by Outlook.

While tools like text messaging and IM are great for short messages, you often don’t have your co-worker’s cell phone number or an IM app on your work phone. And we’ve heard loud and clear from people at work, they want all their communications available in Outlook—even if they send them from other...

Tim Cooks hints at wider Apple Watch retail presence...

Not surprisingly, Apple is looking to sell more Apple Watch units this holiday season.

And it plans to do this by increasing the device’s retail availability.

This news surfaced Tuesday, when CEO Tim Cook stated that the unit is expected the be a hot gift item this year and hinted at an increase in points of sale and/or inventory.

“We’re convinced that the Watch is going to be one of the top gifts of the holiday season,” Cook said.

Cook noted that the Watch has so far only been available through 680 points of sale. That could leave plenty of room for expansion, particularly if Apple decides to add more third-party retailers to...

In a field of Linux distributions cluttered with look-alike offerings, Solus brings something simple and something new. Solus has impressive potential for being uncomplicated and different. Based in the UK, the Solus Project is the latest iteration of SolusOS, which morphed into Evolve OS. The new Solus is not a complete porting of the old Evolve OS.

Enjoy the sun safely with Alara for iPhone

Alara for iPhone (free with optional in-app donation) lets you monitor each day's UV index, which is the "expected risk of overexposure to UV radiation from the sun." The US EPA notes that one American dies of skin cancer every hour, and that "unprotected exposure to UV radiation is the most preventable risk factor for skin cancer." It was this very fact that drove developer Lee Morgan to develop Alara:

"A few years ago a friend of mine, whom I served with in the Air Force, was diagnosed with Melanoma. Upon his diagnosis he was medically discharged from service. I won’t go into the details but suffice to say dealing with melanoma has been very difficult for him and his family."

Morgan notes that he and his wife are light-skinned, increasing their susceptibility to melanoma...

How to configure a cheap, secure RAID backup system

We usually store our photos, documents, and more on a single hard disk—or, increasingly these days, a solid state drive (SSD)—but there’s always the nagging worry that the disk will fail, taking all your work and memories with it. Backing up using Time Machine, Super Duper!, or CrashPlan, say, is a good way of reducing this risk, but there is another: RAID.

RAID can be incredibly complicated, but it’s extremely worthwhile—one of the things it can do is to mirror the contents of one disk completely to another, all the time. While cloning your hard disk using Super Duper!, for example, is something that might happen once a day, with a RAID system, every bit of data that’s written to one disk is simultaneously written to the second, so that if one drive fails, you have a perfect copy of everything it contained on the second. (And optionally, if you replace the failed drive, everything will be mirrored back...

Apple blocks users on beta versions of iOS from...


via Ryan Orbuch

In a move that will certainly please iOS developers, Apple has finally disabled the ability to write app reviews on the latest beta version of iOS 9. When attempting to review applications in the store, beta users will now be met with a message informing them that the feature is unavailable. The change was spotted by several Twitter users earlier this evening.

App makers have long been put off by low reviews from users experiencing problems related to unsupported versions of the mobile operating system, which often hurt an app’s overall ratings and possibly affected their downloads as potential buyers took note of the negative feedback without knowing the full context.

Apple Reports Record Third Quarter Results

Apple has announced financial results for its fiscal 2015 third quarter ended June 27. The company posted quarterly revenue of $49.6 billion and quarterly net profit of $10.7 billion, or $1.85 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $37.4 billion and net profit of $7.7 billion, or $1.28 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 39.7 percent compared to 39.4 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 64 percent of the quarter’s revenue. The growth was fueled by record third-quarter sales of iPhone and Mac, all-time record revenue from services, and the successful launch of Apple Watch. “We had an amazing quarter, with iPhone revenue up 59 percent over last year, strong sales of Mac, all-time record revenue from services, driven by the App Store, and a great start for Apple Watch,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The excitement for Apple Music has been incredible, and we’re looking forward to releasing iOS 9, OS X El Capitan, and...

Apple has just released its earnings report for the third quarter of fiscal 2015. For most of the company's established product lines, there are few surprises: iPhones are doing very well, Macs are doing pretty well, and iPads are slowly drooping.

Apple broke quarterly records with $10.7 billion in profit and $49.6 billion in revenue, compared to $7.7 billion in profit and $37.4 billion in revenue in Q3 of 2014. Its gross margin was 39.7 percent. These results easily beat Apple's guidance for the quarter, which predicted revenue between $46 billion and $48 billion and profit margins between 38.5 and 39.5 percent.

Apple does it again: Record 3rd quarter results

Apple released its fiscal year 3rd quarter results this afternoon, and the numbers look great. The company posted a quarterly revenue of $49.6 billion with a net profit of $10.7 billion ($1.85 per diluted share). That's in comparison with the year-ago quarter when Apple's revenues were $37.4 billion with a net profit of $7.7 billion. 

Gross margin was up slightly to 39.7%, compared to 39.4% for the same quarter in 2014. International sales were 64% of the quarter's revenue. 

iPhone unit sales were up 35% year-over-year, up to 47,534,000 compared to 35,203,000 last year. Revenues were up strongly at 59% year over year from 2014: $31,368,000 in 2015 compared to $19,751,000 in 2014. 

iPad sales continue to slump, with unit sales of "only" 10,931,000 in the quarter and revenues of $4.53 billion. Unit sales were down 18% from the same quarter in 2014, while...

Basically, the companies argue that a refusal to limit damages to infringing features could have huge impact in an era when consumer products incorporate many highly sophisticated components within a single device.

I could see their point if Samsung had of taken one feature and incorporated it into a smartphone it designed. However, Samsung stole the entire phone—hardware, software, and everything else it could lay its grubby little hands on. They were caught and should pay.

Apple will be reporting its financial results for the third quarter of 2015 today at 5pm EDT (2pm PDT, 10pm BST). As usual, we'll be on the call to liveblog the proceedings and offer charts and commentary.

This was the first full quarter of Apple Watch availability, so we'd expect some of the company's statements and many analyst questions to focus on Apple's newest product. Apple won't be breaking watch sales out into their own category, but rather lumping them into "other devices" with iPods, Beats headphones, the Apple TV, and other accessories. We'd expect to see that category spike this quarter, but the company may not choose to elaborate on just how well the watch is selling.

Things were quiet for most of Apple's other products, aside from the odd Mac refresh. The iPhones and iPads are all mid-cycle, and...

News: Home Sharing for Music returns in iOS 9 beta 4

After quietly dropping Home Sharing in iOS 8.4 and later tweeting that it would be working to bring it back in iOS 9, it appears that Apple has taken at least a partial step in this direction. iOS 9 beta 4, released earlier today, returns the Home Sharing option under Music in the iOS 9 Settings app, although the feature doesn’t yet appear to yet be implemented in the actual Music app. At this point, it remains unclear exactly how Home Sharing…

Review: Ulak Lumenair for iPhone 6

Ulak is a new name to us, though the company appears to have been around for a while. The company recently sent us its Lumenair case ($14) for iPhone 6. Lumenair is a two-piece iPhone case consisting of a silicone bumper and clear hard shell. The bumper goes around the phone, which is then placed inside the shell. Lumenair's most notable feature is that by using the LED flash — either by using the iOS flashlight or LED flash notifications (the latter of which the company suggests you turn on for full effect) — the entire case emits a glow, both in the front and the back. It's a neat effect, and stands out as something different. The case offers both volume control and sleep/wake button protection.{/exp:char_limit}

On Tuesday morning, several of Apple’s iCloud services—including the App Store, Apple TV and Beats 1—went down for a number of users. The outages started before 7 a.m. Pacific time and went well until past 10. The technical issues affected users using the services on both desktop and mobile.

Apple quickly addressed the issue in its system status support page. After all the store services were back up and running around 10:30 a.m., Apple stated that the issues affected services tied to its iCloud service.

The struggle was real for all of Apple’s Store Services: the App Store, Apple Music, all the iTunes services, Apple TV, the iBookstore, the Mac App Store, and Radio.

A New Challenger Pounds the Street Fighter V Pavement


Capcom has introduced a new character for its upcoming Street Fighter V, as it continued a reveal that promises a more connected, less confusing experience for players of the next installment in the decades-old series. Whether in a dark alley or a sunny park, any encounter with Necalli would trigger the run-and-hide side of the fight or flight response. Necalli takes on his opponents with an animalistic style of fighting that makes up for in pure brutality what it lacks in finesse, according to Capcom Community Manager Peter Rosas.

World’s strangest-looking airplane? A closer look at...


USAToday:

The airplane is one that turns heads.

Aviation enthusiasts instinctively know it is the “Beluga,” a nickname stemming from the aircraft’s uncanny resemblance to the whale of the same name.

But nearly all who see it tend to agree that regardless of its name, it’s one of the world’s strangest-looking aircraft.

I have a fascination and appreciation for the magic of flight and those crafts that are able to achieve it but this thing? Sorry. It’s one butt ugly airplane.
