Mealworms convert Styrofoam waste into usable soil

Drop-dead simple exploit completely bypasses Mac’s...

Since its introduction in 2012, an OS X feature known as Gatekeeper has gone a long way to protecting the Macs of security novices and experts alike. Not only does it help neutralize social engineering attacks that trick less experienced users into installing trojans, code-signing requirements ensure even seasoned users that an installer app hasn't been maliciously modified as it was downloaded over an unencrypted connection.

Now, a security researcher has found a drop-dead simple technique that completely bypasses Gatekeeper, even when the protection is set to its strictest setting. The hack uses a binary file...

How to add Apple Pay support in watchOS 2's...

watchOS 2 allows you to easily add Apple Pay support in the Wallet app in watchOS 2. This gives you the ability to use merchant rewards and store-issued credit and debit cards on your Apple Watch.

To do so, make sure your iPhone is running iOS 9.x as you'll have to use the Apple Watch app on the smartphone to set up Apple Pay in watchOS 2. (Even if you're already using Apple Pay on your iPhone, you'll still need to add your payment cards to the Watch.) Then you should:

° Launch the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

° Choose Wallet & Apple Pay.

° Select "Add credit or debit card." You'll be prompted you to implement a 4-digit passcode for you Watch if you haven't already done this.

° Sign into your iCloud account.

Twelve South's HiRise models work just fine...

Twelve South’s US$34.95 HiRise has been around for a while, but it works great with the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. It's also now available in a "deluxe" version.

The HiRise is a stylish pedestal of silver brushed metal that works exclusively with the Apple Lightning cable (not included) and is small enough to sit anywhere in your home or office. The metal pedestal elevates the iPhone for FaceTime chats, hands-free calls, desktop charging, viewing apps and streaming music. It does this without blocking your speakers, mic or headphone ports as some docks do.

The HiRise works with just about any case, such as the OtterBox Defender, the Speck CandyShell, Apple’s iPhone 5s/5c cases, and Twelve South’s own BookBook. The HiRises’ sliding rear support and multiple height clips can accommodate all these cases and more, or you can use it with no case on the iPhone at all.

The HiRise Deluxe kicks things up a notch...

Desktops such as the iMac will continue to thrive

In his famous "cars/trucks" analogy, the late Steve Jobs once said that tablets like the iPad would become most folks' choice for a personal computer while traditional computers (especially desktops) would be mainly for businesses and "power users." At the Sept. 9 media event announcing new iPhones, a new Apple TV and the iPad Pro, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the latter was "Apple's vision for the future of personal computing." But don't worry: the desktop isn't going anywhere soon.

In what will be good news for iMac fans (as well as those who love their Mac minis and Mac Pros), a recent survey by the IDC research group indicates that despite the continuous shift to mobility and the proliferation of portable devices such as "ultraslim" notebooks (such as the 12-inch MacBook), convertibles (which certainly includes the iPad Pro), and tablets, desktops are still the main PC...

Hands-on with Safari 9 in El Capitan: Little changes...

Safari’s major overhaul occurred when Yosemite was released last year. By comparison, the changes to Safari are just a few, but they will have an immediate effect on how you browse the web. Let's take a closer look at those changes.

Safari tab mute

This feature alone is worth upgrading to El Capitan. Whenever you’re in Safari, there’s a very good chance that you have multiple tabs open. And many websites auto-play media (yes, like Macworld), so you can end up with sound coming from a tab you aren’t currently looking at. The problem is trying to find which tab the sound is coming from so you can mute the audio.

Hands-on with Mail 9 in El Capitan: Improved full-...

Mail is one of those apps most of us take for granted. It’s one of the first apps we configure when setting up a Mac. In El Capitan, that foundational app experience is the same—what’s more, Apple has introduced big improvements to Mail 9 that make it easier to work on and do more with your messages.

Much more robust full-screen support and swipe gestures are two of Mail 9’s most noticeable visual changes. That’s not all: Improved data detectors make it easier to add events to your calendar and contacts to your contact database. There are other under the hood improvements to make it easier to find what you need and act on it.

Full-screen support and gestures

Full-screen support in Mail 9 makes it easier to juggle multiple email messages. Let’s say you’re composing an email and you want to check another message or copy something from it. The email message you’re composing now moves to the bottom of the screen, so you can access your email inbox, copy text or...

Apple, Microsoft Tout Their Privacy Policies To Get...

jfruh writes: Apple hasn't changed its privacy policy in more than a year — but that didn't stop the company from putting up a glossy website explaining it in layman's terms. Microsoft too has been touting its respect for its users's privacy. This doesn't represent any high-minded altruism on those companies' parts, of course; it's part of their battle against Google, their archrival that offers almost all of its services for free and makes its money mining user data.

Found on Mars: Cool, Clear Water?

Dark, narrow streaks going downhill at four locations on Mars are evidence of water flowing on the planet. Called "recurring slope lineae," the streaks are approximately the length of a football field, according to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. They are believed to have been formed by the seasonal flow of water. Lujendra Ojha of the Georgia Institute of Technology noticed these lineae as an undergraduate student at the University of Arizona in 2010. His team's report on the research was published Monday in Nature Geoscience.

iOS 9 'Wi-Fi Assist' Could Lead To Huge...

Dave Knott writes: One of the new features introduced in iOS9 is "Wi-Fi Assist." This enables your phone to automatically switch from Wi-Fi to a cellular connection when the Wi-Fi signal is poor. That's helpful if you're in the middle of watching a video or some other task on the internet that you don't want interrupted by spotty Wi-Fi service. Unfortunately, Wi-Fi Assist is enabled by default, which means that users may exceed their data cap without knowing it because their phone is silently switching their data connection from Wi-Fi to cellular.

El Capitan builds on the groundbreaking features and beautiful design of OS X Yosemite. “People love using their Macs, and one of the biggest reasons is the power and ease of use of OS X,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “El Capitan refines the Mac experience and improves performance in a lot of little ways that make a very big difference. Feedback from our OS X beta program has been incredibly positive and we think customers are going to love their Macs even more with El Capitan.”

“We haven’t started yet,” Cook said. The Apple CEO sat down for a fireside chat with Box CEO Aaron Levie at the BoxWorks conference in San Francisco on Tuesday morning. A more contextual interpretation of that statement could be that Apple hasn’t really started in enterprise, but that’s certainly what’s coming next for the Cupertino-based tech company.

No sooner had the Apple "Hey Siri" event been announced than Apple World Today started receiving information from case manufacturers about their lines for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Fortunately for all of the manufacturers, they could all breathe a sign of relief since Apple changed the dimensions of the phones so little that the same cases made for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus could be used for the new phones. Well, some manufacturers chose to release new cases anyway, and one of those is the Moshi iGlaze Napa (US$49.95), a very classy looking snap-on case for Apple's latest iPhones.


Moshi's design sense is one of the best in the industry, and the iGlaze Napa demonstrates that perfectly. The case is essentially a standard polycarbonate snap on case with a leatherette backing to it, but the...

Folding keyboards are nothing new -- I can recall using them back in the days of Palm PDAs. But as with all of the rest of our technology, things just keep getting better. The Flyshark 2 is currently looking for funding on Kickstarter and has reached about 40% of its funding goal with a little over three weeks to go. So why should you back this project? Let's take a look.

Using Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth 4.2), it's possible for the keyboard to get up to 1 year of battery life off of a single charge. At 9.96 inches wide (253 mm) and 2.95 inches deep (75 mm) when unfolded, the Flyshark 2 provides a surprisingly large keyboard area. The design team used 7000 series aluminum for the exterior shell, the same material used in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. As such, the Flyshark 2 weighs only 150 grams -- about 5.3 ounces.

OS X 10.11 El Capitan hits tomorrow.

That’s the official word from Apple via a press release issued on Tuesday.

The new operating system will become available tomorrow (September 30th) on the Mac App Store as a free update. The information has been available since Apple’s September 9th event, which included the Wednesday release date as an easter egg during the new iPhone’s 3D Touch demo.

Compared to OS X Yosemite, El Capitan is more of a minor update that focuses on under-the-hood improvements versus new end-user features and design changes. However, the operating system still does include new features such as a split-screen apps mode, new search features in...

September month-end Patreon update

It’s with a great deal of sadness that we have to report that our friend and co-worker Dave Caolo won’t be with us on a regular basis anymore. On the plus side, Dave is working full time at the International Fund for Animal Welfare and will be writing the occasional piece for AWT.

As a result of Dave departing Apple World Today, we’re readjusting our Patreon goals and I’m happy to say that we’re now very close to our goal of keeping the site going for the foreseeable future. With the support of just over 300 patrons, the site is gaining $1,693.49 each month that is used to keep us solvent. If that number gets to $2,000, we'll be able to keep Apple World Today going indefinitely; at $2,250 we'll add a weekly podcast; and at $2,500 we'll add curated forums. For $4,000 a month, we'll get rid of ads forever! The goals are more attainable than ever.

It was 2009 when Apple last released a new operating system on physical media. Things have proceeded remarkably smoothly since version 10.7 switched to download-only installers, but there are still good reasons to want an old, reliable USB stick. For instance, if you find yourself doing multiple installs, a USB drive may be faster than multiple downloads (especially if you use a USB 3.0 drive). Or maybe you need a recovery disk for older Macs that don't support the Internet Recovery feature. Whatever the reason, you're in luck, because it's not hard to make one.

Poor OS X can't get no respect.

Apple's Mac operating system has been playing second fiddle to the iPhone since 2007, when Leopard was delayed to make more room for the then-new smartphone. And despite the occasional protest to the contrary, OS X hasn't been the apple of Apple's eye since then. It was second to iCloud, second to iMessage, second to the post-Scott-Forstall flattening of the operating system. And as an added insult, Apple couldn't find time at a two-hour product event to...

Apple has updated its privacy policy to cover newer aspects of iOS 9, including sections breaking down security measures within specific apps like News, Apple Music and public transit directions in Maps. Apple says while News uses information about the stories a user is reading to serve up ads, reading activity information isn’t shared with other Apple services and is linked only to a News-specific identifier that can be reset at any time by…

External Link: A Comparison of Every iPhone Camera

Photographer Lisa Bettany has posted comparison shots showing how the rear camera of the iPhone 6s stacks up to every previous iPhone model. While the iPhone 6s comes out on top in most tests, as you’d expect, there are a few areas where older models have the upper hand.

External Link: The iPhone 6s Is Not Waterproof

There are videos making the rounds showing an iPhone 6s soaking in a bowl of water and then coming out seemingly unscathed. While the new iPhones appear to be more water-resistant than prior models, don’t bring your new iPhone into the shower. Even if problems don’t manifest immediately, they can appear days later, and a dive into a pool still appears to kill an iPhone 6s.

After Apple split orders for its new A9 chip between Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. and Samsung, Chipworks is reporting that Samsung A9 chips are 10 percent smaller than TSMC A9 chips found in the same iPhone 6s models. While Apple has split orders for components to meet supply demands before, this is the first time such a critical component has not come from a single supplier, hinting that Apple faced serious supply issues in obtaining enough…

Apple's Maps app for Mac OS X, iOS could get a...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,147,286) by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for "non-static 3D map views." Think of the invention as the iOS 9 Live Photos feature applied to the Maps app for Mac OS X and iOS — and kicked up a notch. 

The patent — for a mapping app that generates views of a 3D map — could animates water, foliage, buildings and other map elements based on your input The app includes a geographic data module for identifying a set of geographic data that represents a portion of the 3D map. 

The set of geographic data includes a set of camera captured images that correspond to the portion of the 3D map. The mapping app includes an image processing module for rendering the view of the 3D map based on the geographic data by animating a type of map element in the view of the 3D map.

In the patent filing, Apple says its invention would animate different defined types of map...

VectorLinux Light Has That Old-School Linux Feeling

VectorLinux 7.1 Light Edition targets fans of the IceWM desktop environment who own older computers. VectorLinux released its latest light edition this summer. What makes it new compared with previous editions is the shift to the lightweight IceWM. Yes, IceWM is very old school. Still, it is a handy and functional alternative that serves legacy computers well. The standard edition of VectorLinux 7.1, which arrived several weeks prior to the latest light release, uses the Xfce desktop environment.

IHS, ABI Research offer predictions for 2015 iPad...

Can the iPad Pro, which goes on sale in November, turn Apple's tablet sales around or even reverse the downward course of global tablet sales in general? The iPad's market share has consistently decreased by about 18 percent over the last few years even as the market as a whole shrank by 7 percent.

"The current IHS forecast calls for 2.8 million iPad Pros to be sold in 2015," Rhoda Alexander, director of Tablet and Notebook Research at the research group, told Apple World Today. "Note that this figure factors in projected production limits. We expect initial demand for the product will be much higher, perhaps as high as five million units so expect Apple to enter 2016 with healthy backorders for the product."

New market intelligence data from ABI Research predicts the installed base of tablets will decrease for the first time in 2016 as growth from first-time buyers shifts to replacement purchases...

How to use your Apple Watch in Nightstand Mode

watchOS 2 provides a new Nightstand mode for the Apple Watch that allows the smartwatch to serve as a bedside alarm clock. The Digital Crown and side button serve as snooze and off buttons for the alarm. You can enable Nightstand mode via your iPhone or on the Apple Watch itself.

To do so, via your iPhone:

  • Launch the Watch app on your iPhone.
  • Tap General.
  • Scroll down, then slide the switch next to Nightstand Mode to the On position.

To enable Nightstand mode directly on the Apple Watch:

  • Launch the Settings app.
  • Tap General.
  • Scroll down and tap Nightstand Mode.
  • Slide the switch to the On position.

You're ready! Now you can use your watch even when you’re done wearing it for the day. Just place it on its side and connect the charger. The Apple Watch will automatically go into Nightstand mode, a digital display that illuminates whenever you touch the screen,...

FolderGlance still a great Mac OS X utility after...

Yellow Lemon Software's FolderGlance, a utility for browsing files and folders, is still a solid addition to your Mac's software arsenal after all these years. With version 3.0.5, it's able to resolve aliases on Mac OS X Yosemite. Alias handling on older Mac OS X releases has also been improved.

FolderGlance lets you preview files directly from the contextual menus, as well as move, copy and make aliases of selected files at locations you browse to. For example, its Hover Previews feature lets you automatically preview files while browsing the context menu created by FolderGlance. 

By allowing the mouse cursor to linger over a file shown in one of FolderGlance's context menus for a short time (more on that in a moment), a preview automatically appears on-screen. The preview mode lets you quickly browse a pictures, documents and other files without using your keyboard.

Unless you only use your Mac...

Camera shootout: How the iPhone 6s compares to the...

If you glance through the iPhone 6s’s specs and list of features, you would be forgiven for thinking that its most important camera upgrade is the sensor on its back-facing camera, which has been bumped from 8 megapixels—which has persisted since the iPhone 4s—to 12 megapixels. Actually, the increase in resolution is the least interesting thing to happen to what is, remember, the most popular camera in the world. Far more exciting is what’s happened to the camera on the other side of the iPhone, and what Apple is doing with video.

To better understand the iPhone 6s’s photographic abilities, and to help you decide if you want to upgrade from its immediate predecessor, we ran some side-by-side tests of the iPhone 6 and 6s. These tests were—how shall we put this?—appropriately scientific. That is, we shot with both iPhones at the same time, but we were taking real world photos, not artificial studio shots of grey cards and ISO testing charts. Also, while we’...

When Apple Music first launched three months ago, all of us here at Macworld immediately signed up and started grooving to its three-month free trial. (That is, until Prince’s catalog disappeared.) Most of us were already subscribing to other music streaming services, but since Apple Music had a long lead-in period, there was no harm in double-dipping in the musical honey jar.

Our initial reactions were strong, and favorable. We loved its personalized playlists, Siri integration, and the always changing “For You” section. We were thrilled to have a place to legally stream 1989. We even started to enjoy...

L.A. Unified to get $6.4 million in settlement over...

LA Times:

The Los Angeles Unified School District has reached a tentative $6.4-million settlement over curriculum from education software giant Pearson that the school system said its teachers barely used.

The pact is the latest fallout from an aborted $1.3-billion plan to provide an iPad to every student, teacher and campus administrator in the nation’s second-largest school district.

The Board of Education is expected to vote on the settlement in October. The bidding process that led to the original contract is the subject of an FBI investigation.

This has been a long, drawn out embarrassment for Apple, a company that prides itself on its work with schools. While the case isn’t entirely over, this settlement at least paves the way for all parties to move on.

But for those of you who are more interested in chip design, Chipworks has unearthed an interesting tidbit: there are two different versions of the A9 chip, one manufactured by Samsung and another by Taiwan Semiconductor (TSMC).
