iTunes 12.5 and iOS 10 music app add lyrics to song...

Kirk McElhearn walks you through the process of showing lyrics on your Mac and iOS device. Love this.

Lyrics have been part of iTunes for a long time. Here’s Kirk on what’s new here:

You have always been able to add lyrics to files in iTunes, but iTunes didn’t display them other than in the Info window. On iOS, you could display them by tapping album artwork, if you had added lyrics to your files. So what’s new is the display in iTunes, in the Up Next popup, or in the MiniPlayer.

In addition, iTunes and iOS will now search for lyrics that you haven’t added to your tracks. This is new, and involves some sort of licensing, most likely with Gracenote.

So it’s a pretty big deal.

Agreed.

Deal with Cash Money (Drake’s label) expands Apple’s...

Bloomberg:

Apple Inc., the world’s richest company, is making a documentary with Cash Money Records, one of the world’s most successful hip-hop labels.

Cash Money is home to Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake, with whom Apple already has an exclusive deal. Co-founder Bryan Williams, who performs under the stage name Birdman, posted a picture to his Instagram account on Tuesday alongside Larry Jackson, the head of Apple’s original music content, with both executives holding their chins pensively. The photo celebrated Apple agreeing to fund a documentary for the label, according to people familiar with the deal. It is not, as many had speculated after the photo, an agreement to secure all of Cash Money’s new albums exclusively, the people said.

This is Apple continuing to dip their toes in the water.

Apple steps up environmental efforts in China

Apple doesn’t talk about its supply chain very often, but the company does love to tout its environmental efforts. On Tuesday, Apple announced that its supplier Lens Technology has committed to using 100 percent renewable energy to manufacture glass for Apple, by the end of 2018.

Lens Technology is expected to use wind power to reach this goal. Currently, it produces glass for Apple at two factories in Changsha, Human province, in southern China. By using clean wind power, the firm will avoid releasing nearly 450,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year.

“We want to show the world that you can manufacture responsibly and we’re working alongside our suppliers to help them lower their environmental impact in China,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, in a press...

Rumor: Apple won’t use “iPhone 7 Pro” name for next-...

According to the current rumors, the “iPhone 7 Pro” monicker may never come to be.

A number of sources have said that Apple is following this name scheme to avoid confusion of having back-to-back iPhones with “S” in the name, even though the iPhone 7 will largely be a minor update over the iPhone 6s.

The new report nixes the additional third tier/”Pro” name, which had been a rumored dual-lens alternative to the single-lens “iPhone 7 Plus” that had been mentioned months ago. The less-powerful camera option was said to be created by Apple as a fallback in case the dual-lens technology didn’t pan out. Now that everything seems to be going well for the company in this area, and mockups have repeatedly shown a dual-lens camera enclosure, it makes sense for Apple to revert to the...

Apple to boost China investments as demand slows

Reuters:

Apple Inc will boost its investment in China, one of its largest but increasingly challenging markets, and build its first Asia-Pacific research and development center in the country, Chief Executive Tim Cook said on Tuesday.

Cook made the pledge during a trip to China, at least his second in four months, as demand for Apple’s iPhones has plummeted in the world’s second-largest economy and the government remains wary about foreign technology.

Apple’s new research and development center will be built by the end of the year, Cook told Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli, one of China’s most senior officials, according to CCTV, the official Chinese state broadcaster.

The center will unite Apple’s engineering and operations teams in China and is also intended to deepen the company’s ties to partners and universities, it said in a statement.

AppYogi Software has introduced One Chat 1.0, their new social networking app developed for Mac OS X. It’s designed to combine chat and messaging services into one simple app.

One Chat gives mobile users the opportunity to access their WhatsApp, FaceBook Messenger, Telegram, Skype, Slack messages.

Intel expects USB-C could help kill the 3.5mm audio...

Stephen Shankland, writing for CNET:

At the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on Tuesday, Intel architects Brad Saunders and Rahman Ismail sketched out a coming USB audio standard that could help push the 3.5mm jack aside. The new specification, due this quarter, adds features to ensure a USB headphone doesn’t drain too much battery power and defines how buttons for pausing music or lowering volume work.

This is an interesting fork in the road for the 3.5mm audio jack. One rumored path is the elimination of the 3.5mm jack from the upcoming iPhone 7, in combination with a potential lightning to 3.5mm headset adapter for legacy headsets.

This UDB-C push would be another path, another adapter for legacy headsets.

Seems to me, all roads lead to wireless headphones as the future. The short term is the replacement cycle, similar to what we went through with the elimination of the floppy drive, the CD/DVD drive, and the changeover to the lightning cable....

Apple and environmental progress in China

From the linked official Apple press release:

Apple® today announced a significant commitment by major supplier Lens Technology to run its Apple operations on entirely renewable energy. This unprecedented commitment, combined with zero waste compliance from all final assembly sites, furthers Apple’s efforts to help manufacturers lower their carbon footprint and reduce waste in China, helping to advance China’s transition to a new green economy.

Apple has previously worked with with Drake in the past. His latest album, Views, was an Apple Music exclusive for a week when it launched in April.

Apple to open its first retail store in Austria

As noted by 9to5Mac, Austrian newspaper derStandard is reporting that Apple is close to finalizing contracts to open its first Apple Store in the country. It will be located on the upmarket shopping street Kärntner Straße in Vienna, but no opening date is mentioned in the article.

Kärntner Straße (pictured) is the most famous shopping street in central Vienna. It runs from the Stephansplatz out to the Wiener Staatsoper at Karlsplatz on the Ringstraße. The first record of Kärntner Straße is from 1257, as Strata Carintianorum, which refers to its importance as a trade route to the southern province of Carinthia.

With the opening of the store, Apple will have 488 retail stores in 21 countries and an online store available in 39 countries.

Intel licenses ARM to use chip manufacturing capacity

The two chipmakers unveiled the agreement Tuesday at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. The accord will let Intel offer third-party semiconductor companies its most advanced 10-nanometer production lines for manufacturing the complex chips usually used in smartphones.

Intel, which receives most of its profits from its processor business, has failed to gain ground in the emerging smartphone market, which until now has been dominated by ARM. Under Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich, Intel is trying to persuade other chipmakers to use its factories for their production. Adding licenses for ARM’s technology could open up that business to fabricating chips based on those designs for companies...

DevMate, a development and distribution platform for Mac developers, conducted a survey of 679 Mac developers to get their thoughts on the Mac App Store. Interestingly, 42 percent of respondents sell on both the Mac App Store and outside of it; however, those who sell both ways see roughly equivalent revenue from both channels. Overall, developers were overwhelmingly negative in their appraisal of the Mac App Store, leading to astonishingly low Net Promoter Score ratings. What ticks developers off the most? The Mac App Store’s unclear and unwieldy review process, the 30 percent transaction fees, the lack of upgrades and trials, and no two-way communication with customers. If only an interviewer would ask Tim Cook about these findings!

This is the last chapter for the iconic Manhattan store. I taught photography classes there and really enjoyed perusing their collection. I particularly enjoyed their collection of vintage camera equipment. There might be some cool stuff available for auction participants.

We might see an ‘iMac Pro’ with an AMD Zen processor...

A new rumor says a new iMac will launch in the last quarter of the year with either the latest Intel chipset, Kaby Lake, or AMD’s Zen processor, as well as AMD’s Polaris Graphics set.

My take: we’ll certainly see an updated iMac, probably in October. It won’t pack a Zen processor (powerful, but pricey), but will include a Polaris graphics card. It will pack a Kaby Lake processor — IF they’re available in time in bulk. Right now there’s some question as to whether that will happen. The caveat to this situation is if Apple decides to discontinue the Mac Pro line and offer an “iMac Pro” with a Zen chip, which boasts eight cores and 16 threads  

Don’t expect any major design changes to the all-in-one. However, it’s very possible that Apple may offer all Macs with flash drives only, dropping the Fusion drives that have been...

I'd love to see Ultra-D on an iMac and...

Now here's a technology that sounds like a fun addition to an iMac and a replacement for the Thunderbolt Display (and on an Apple-branded HDTV, should the company reconsider plans for such a device): Ultra-D. It's 3D without the glasses.

Stream TV Networks is the company behind the technology. Ultra-D technology allows users to watch content in fully adjustable 4K glasses-free 3D. The breakthrough solution received the Technology Award from the Advanced Imaging Society.

The first Ultra-D products were a 28-inch Ultra-D PC monitor prototype — designed for gaming and medical applications — and a 4K tablet-sized 10-inch Ultra-D panel for glasses-free 3D on the go. Televisions – both big and small – are currently in various stages of development, along with tablets, phones and all-in-one PC’s.

According to the folks at Stream TV, Ultra-D converts all content (even non-3D) in “stunning detail, alleviating...

Rumor: a Final Cut Pro X update and a revamped Mac...

There are rumors of a big Final Cut Pro upgrade coming in October. The rumor mill also suggests (hopes?) that a revamped Mac Pro might debut at the same time.

The FCPX Creative Summit of Oct. 28-30 would be a opportune time for Apple to roll out a new version of FCPX and an upgraded Mac Pro. What’s more, code in Mac OS X El Capitan hints that a new Mac Pro could arrive soon, according to the Learn Final Cut website.

My take: although the Mac Pro hasn’t been updated since 2013, I won’t be surprised to see the high-end desktop discontinued with Apple reasoning that the iMac its current form, offers lots of power and, with Thunderbolt, impressive expansion opportunities. I could be wrong — and, for the sake of Mac Pro fans, I hope I am. On the bright side (for pro users...

Tip of the Day: Saving power with Face-down...

If you get a lot of notifications during the day, you can actually save a bit of battery life by leaving your iPhone face down on a table or other surface. Face-down detection is a subtle feature that Apple snuck into iOS 9 last fall to save a bit of power on modern iPhones by not lighting up the screen whenever text message notifications come in — after all, the screen is one of the biggest power consumers on the iPhone, and since you can’t…

It’s said that this year’s iPhone won’t bring a fresh new design which if true is kind of lame-sauce, and if these models are anything like the real deal, I think it’s time to be a bit disappointed in Apple’s design choices…

Meanwhile, there's an optional smart lamp attachment called "Orb," which illuminates when you have notifications and can float on the base itself when you're not charging anything.

Google first showed off Duo at its I/O conference in May, promising that the new app would be very simple and focus more on the human element by offering you a live view of the video before answering the call, thanks to the Knock Knock feature.
