You should not force quit qpps on iOS

John Gruber on forcing quitting apps to save battery:

The iOS system is designed so that none of the above justifications for force quitting are true. Apps in the background are effectively “frozen”, severely limiting what they can do in the background and freeing up the RAM they were using. iOS is really, really good at this. It is so good at this that unfreezing a frozen app takes up way less CPU (and energy) than relaunching an app that had been force quit. Not only does force quitting your apps not help, it actually hurts. Your battery life will be worse and it will take much longer to switch apps if you force quit apps in the background.

I see people doing this all the time, but they never believe me when I tell them it doesn’t do any good.

Public Service Announcement: You Should Not Force...

The single biggest misconception about iOS is that it’s good digital hygiene to force quit apps that you aren’t using. The idea is that apps in the background are locking up unnecessary RAM and consuming unnecessary CPU cycles, thus hurting performance and wasting battery life.

That’s not how iOS works. The iOS system is designed so that none of the above justifications for force quitting are true. Apps in the background are effectively “frozen”, severely limiting what they can do in the background and freeing up the RAM they were using. iOS is really, really good at this. It is so good at this that unfreezing a frozen app takes up way less CPU (and energy) than relaunching an app that had been force quit.

Facebook Is Looking Into Allowing Paywall For...

New submitter sarbonn writes: Facebook is testing whether or not it can start charging for stories by placing a paywall that appears after ten stories have been viewed from one of its media sources. An interesting takeaway is that Facebook would like to do this by avoiding the mandatory 30 percent cut that Apple and Google get from their stores by going around their app stores. This is being targeted for around October. The news comes from Campbell Brown, who heads Facebook's new partnerships business. "We are in early talks with several news publishers about how we might better support subscription business models on Facebook. As part of the Facebook Journalism Project, we are taking the time to work closely together with our partners and understand their needs," Brown told TechCrunch in a statement via a spokesperson.

Apple released a slew of software updates today for nearly all of its systems; you can now download macOS Sierra 10.12.6, iOS 10.3.3, watchOS 3.2.3, and tvOS 10.2.2 to any of your compatible devices. The updates appear to be minor, as most of them focus on bug fixes.

MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 is the sixth update to this version of Apple's operating system, and it may very well be the last before the introduction of macOS High Sierra. As per Apple's usual refresher schedule, macOS High Sierra should be pushed out to users this fall. According to Apple's information page, macOS Sierra 10.12.6...

Periodically Newegg decides to heavily discount its Rosewill cables and connectors. Right now, the retailer has a sale on its in-house products that’ll beat even a $0.99 HDMI cable on eBay: Everything’s free. Kind of.

These products are free after rebate, so you still have to pay up front. (And depending on where you live, you’ll also have to pay sales tax, which won’t get reimbursed.) After the rebate, you’ll get a gift card worth the value of the purchase. Of all the products available today, I’m most interested in the four-port USB 3.0 aluminum hub for $12 (before the $12 rebate).

Twelve South is giving all of us who aren't privileged to live in Charleston to share in its beauty through the release of three dual-screen Mac wallpaper sets.

The images are all by Charleston photographer Kim Graham, and this collection -- titled Charleston at Sea Level -- features matching side by side images that can stretch across almost any size of Mac screen at top resolution...and onto a second screen as well.

I'm not sure which one is my favorite, but Sunrise on Folly Beach (seen at top) and Charleston Harbor (below) are fighting it out for the backgrounds on my 27-inch 5K Retina iMac and 13-inch MacBook.

Google Glass, the tech giant’s augmented reality eyewear that flopped in consumer usage due to buggy behavior and privacy concerns, may have found its niche. Companies like agricultural equipment manufacturer AGCO and shipment company DHL have discovered that an upgraded version of Glass radically improves productivity for workers who need product assembly instructions or are picking items in a warehouse. The Wired article’s money quote: “In the enterprise world, Glass is not an outgrowth of the intrusive and distracting smart phone, but a tool for getting work done and nothing else.” We may see more movement toward eyewear from Apple if the company’s new augmented reality ARKit technology takes off because it’s a lot easier to see digital data overlaid on the real world through glasses than on an iPhone.

A product that has been around about as long as Dennis Sellers and me is making a reappearance in a new way. Speidel, the maker of the Twist-O-Flex watchband that has been around since 1959, is now selling its classic expandable-bracelet watchband for the Apple Watch at a very affordable $50.

It's available in both 38mm and 42mm sizes for all models of the Apple Watch, and the Twist-O-Flex is not only a piece of nostalgic jewelry, but incredibly comfortable as well. The bracelets feature two sets of links held together with bracket pins that make the bracelet expand (up to 5 inches!) and contract with a light pull. The only negative? If you have hairy arms, you'll occasionally have a strand or two get caught in between the links and get pulled out.

iPhones Are Priced 'High in the Extreme'...

An anonymous reader shares a report: Apple's iPhone has been losing ground to domestic competitors in China. That is because Chinese smartphone makers offer sophisticated functions at reasonable prices, according to Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder and one of the pioneers of the personal computer industry. "Here is what I admire about Chinese phones: really good, intelligent decisions about how to lower the cost but keep enough of the functionality in, because I am into products that are good, well designed, nice looking, but at prices that the average person can afford," he said. Still, Wozniak believes the quality of Apple's product makes it worth the high price tag. "In life I don't believe in quantity as much as I do in quality. So you may not have the hugest share in the market or be the No 1, but you should have the best product you can possibly build and Apple qualifies for that," Wozniak, told reporters after he discussed artificial intelligence with Liu Zihong, chairman and...

∞ The most popular drum beat in the world

[VIDEO] Dave here. I’ve been playing music since I was a kid. I started with an out-of-tune, broken down, flea-market guitar, then moved on to pretty much any instrument I could get my hands on. Master of none, tryer of all. But the one instrument I could never quite get going with is the drums.

I always felt awkward trying to make my feet do one thing while each hand did something completely different. Part of it was not understanding the rules. Then came the video embedded in the main Loop post. For some reason, watching this video, it all just clicked for me. And so I thought I’d share it with you.

To me, the best part of this video is the look on the drummers face. The thousand yard stare. Enjoy.

Apple patents mechanism to secretly call 911 using...

CNBC:

A patent granted on Tuesday depicted technology that would sense the “manner” in which a finger touched the iPhone screen to trigger a 911 call. For example, the phone might look for a particular sequence of fingers, the level of force, a gesture (pinching or swiping), or a certain cadence of taps to the screen, the filing says.

When the “panic command” is activated, the phone would provide the users’ location to responders, and could also livestream audio or video from the iPhone.

Here’s a link to the patent.

The key to this, for me, is the ability to subtly make a call to 911, capturing audio and video, all without a potential attacker being aware the call was placed. Terrific idea.

Smuggler caught with 102 iPhones stuffed in her...

Brian Ashcraft, Kotaku:

Customs officials in Shenzhen, China have arrested a woman with 102 iPhones stuffed into her clothing.

Shenzhen borders Hong Kong, and, over the years, customs officials have arrested all sorts of smugglers.

According to XMNN, customs officials recently stopped a woman after noticing that the way her body bulged appeared strange. The officials searched her, discovering she was allegedly smuggling 102 iPhones of various models as well as 15 luxury wrist watches. The total weight of her haul was over 44 pounds.

Not sure what drove this particular smuggler. Was it a price disparity between iPhone values in Hong Kong and Shenzhen? More an issue of scarcity? A combination of both?

What I found most fascinating was the picture with the smuggler and the two border agents. The smuggler’s face is pixellated, the agents’ faces are not. And the smuggler is pointing to the iPhones, all laid out in front of her. Was she made to do this...

Almost two-thirds of all iPhones are still being used

Nearly two-thirds of iPhones sold since the 2007 launch remain in use, according to data from Newzoo (as cited by Digitimes). The market intelligence firm says that 728 million Apple smartphones remained in use as of April, which represents about 63% of all iPhones sold in the past decade.

One-quarter of cell phones used around the world were iPhones, but iPhone sales only accounted for 15% of April global smartphone shipments. Approximately 228 million (about 31%) of the in-use Apple smartphones are in China with the US market coming in second with 120 million (16%), according to Newzoo. The iPhone 6 remains the most popular with 21% of the market with the newer iPhone 7 coming in at 11%.

The Apple vs. Qualcomm battle gets even messier

Foxconn and other iPhone manufacturers on Monday brought in Apple Inc. as another defendant in Qualcomm Inc.’s suit seeking royalty payments from them for its cellular technology license agreements in California federal court, saying they had been caught in the middle of a sprawling patent war, notes the legal website, Law360.

In January, Apple filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm, alleging the chip supplier demanded unfair terms for its technology.  However, Qualcomm denies the allegations and says Apple wouldn't have an iPhone business if it weren't for fair licensing of the company’s essential tech.

Apple previews assorted new emoji as part of World...

Because you can’t argue that emoji are pretty fun.

Apple is continuing its celebration of World Emoji Day with a preview of all-new emoji characters coming to iOS, macOS, and watchOS later in 2017.

The company previewed several new emoji today, including Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Breastfeeding, Sandwich, Coconut, T-Rex, Zebra, Zombie, Elf, Star-Struck, Exploding Head, and more. All of the emoji shared today were previously included in the new Unicode 10 standard released in June.

Apple didn’t specify a launch date as to when the new emoji characters will come to its Macs and assorted devices this year, although it’s expected that they will arrive sometime around the public launch of iOS 11 this fall, or soon thereafter. World Emoji Day celebrations are also extending to the iOS App Store, where Apple said that it has highlighted apps that showcase fun things to do with the smartphone characters.

How to delete a disk set using Disk Utility in macOS...

You can use the Disk Utility in macOS Sierra to delete a disk set that’s no longer needed. When you delete a set, the data recorded on the disks isn’t deleted. For example, deleting a mirrored RAID set leaves each disk in the set with a copy of all the RAID data. 

When you delete a concatenated set, all the data is copied to the first disk of the set (as long as the first disk has enough disk space to store the data), providing a single volume with all the data. Before deleting anything, back up any important files. Then:

  • In Disk Utility, select a disk set that you want to delete in the sidebar.
  • Click the Delete RAID button.
  • Click Delete.
  • To erase all the disks in a disk set:
  • Back up any important files.
  • In Disk Utility, select a disk set that you want to erase in the sidebar.
  • Click the Erase buttonin the toolbar.
