Star Micronics announces Apple Certified AirPrint...

POS printer manufacturer Star Micronics has officially received certification for the first Apple AirPrint POS printer: the $376 Star TSP654II AirPrint. This company says it’s the first 80 and 58mm receipt and ticket POS printer on the market to be Apple AirPrint certified.

 AirPrint provides mobile printing solutions for Apple’s iPad, iPhone, iPod and MacBook users on any private network with the key objective to be able to wirelessly print via the customer’s network without installing specific printer drivers.

Apple has released the third developer betas for iOS 11.2, watchOS 4.2, and tvOS 11.2. The iOS 11.2 beta is reportedly allowing users to wirelessly charge their iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X devices at 7.5-watt speeds instead of the previous 5-watt limit. The latest iOS 11.2 beta also provides a new explainer for how the Control Center’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles work. Tapping these no longer turns off the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth radios, but instead…

The Apple Watch can accurately detect hypertension...

Sarah Buhr, TechCrunch:

A new study out from health startup Cardiogram and the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) suggests wearables like the Apple Watch, Fitbit and others are able to accurately detect common but serious conditions like hypertension and sleep apnea.


Sleep apnea affects an estimated 22 million adults in the U.S., with another 80 percent of cases of moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea undiagnosed, according to the American Sleep Apnea Association. This is a serious condition where the person affected stops breathing in their sleep and can lead to death.

The current process for diagnosing sleep apnea typically requires an overnight stay in a sleep center, where they connect an array of sensors to detect and track your sleeping and breathing patterns. Often, a breathing device is prescribed and fitted, with another overnight to verify that it is working correctly. Every element of this process is expensive, and (at...

Future Apple Pencils may be able to ‘capture’...

Future iterations of the Apple Pencil may be able to capture and represent the texture of a scanned surface, as evidenced by a new Apple patent (number 9,817,489) for a “texture capture stylus and method.” And, yes, I know that Apple says the Pencil isn’t a stylus, but that’s how the tech giant has described it in more than one patent.

According to the patent, the Pencil includes an image sensing and capture device to permit a surface to be scanned using the stylus. An image may be stored and displayed on an electronic device (just the iPad, so far) to represent the texture of the scanned surface.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that texture is an element of two-dimensional and three-dimensional design and is distinguished by its perceived visual and physical properties. Use of texture, along with other elements of design, can convey a variety of messages and emotions. 

For example, use of rough surfaces can be visually active, while smooth surfaces can be...

Rumor: the 2019 iPhone will have a rear-facing 3D...

Forget the iPhone X and the iPhone X Plus, I already want the 2019 Apple smartphone. According to Bloomberg, Apple is working on a rear-facing 3D sensor for that year’s model. 

The goal? To make the smartphone into the leading augmented reality (AR) device thanks to both front and rear-facing 3D sensing capabilties. Apple is evaluating a different technology from the one it currently uses in the TrueDepth sensor system on the front of the iPhone X, according to Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the plan.”

The TrueDepth camera for the iPhone X works by using a projector to cast 30,000 dots on your face, which it then reads with an infrared camera. Apple already...

The Apple Watch retakes the lead in the wearable...

Apple retook the lead in the wearable band market in quarter three of 2017, with shipments of 3.9 million, reports the Canalys research group. It posted its strongest quarter so far in 2017, thanks to the release of the Apple Watch Series 3. 

Xiaomi and Fitbit, which shipped 3.6 million and 3.5 million wearable bands respectively, have also bucked the trend of the traditionally weaker quarter three by posting quarter-on-quarter growth. But despite the increase in smartwatch shipments, waning demand for basic bands meant the overall wearable band market fell 2% to reach 17.3 million units, according to Canalys. 

“Strong demand for the LTE-enabled Apple Watch Series 3 has dispelled service providers’ doubts about the cellular smartwatch not appealing to customers,” says Canalys Analyst Jason Low. 

Despite strong shipments, the Apple Watch Series 3 didn’t reach its full potential in quarter three, he adds. It...

How to access and customize the Control Center on...

There are some changes in the user interface of the iPhone X from previous versions of the Apple smartphone. However, they’re not hard to adjust, too, if you have a little patience. 

One change is how you open the control center. On the iPhone X, swipe down from the upper-right corner of the screen. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen or tap the screen to close the control center. 

You can customize Control Center so you can change the settings for the things you do most. Here’s how:

  • Go to Settings > Control Center.
  • Tap Customize Controls.
  • To add controls, tap the “plus” sign. To remove controls, tap the “minus” sign, then tap Remove.

Want to rearrange controls in Control Center? Just go to Settings > Control Center, tap Customize Controls, then touch and hold the three-horizontal-line icon next to the controls and drag them in the order that you want them.

Help keep your Mac’s drives healthy with DriveDx

By Aaron Lee

BinaryFruit's DriveDx is a useful Mac solution for SSD and HDD health diagnostics and monitoring. It measures the overall health of both SSD and HDD drives. This allows users to take action to avert the failure, and save themselves from resulting data loss and downtime.

Unlike some drive health diagnostics utilities that simply check built-in S.M.A.R.T. status, DriveDx performs overall drive health diagnostics using drive health indicators (like SSD wear out/endurance, reallocated bad sectors, offline bad sectors, pending sectors, I/O errors, and more) that most closely correlate with drive failures according to the statistics reported in the latest researches focused on identifying drive failure trends.

This gives a user a comprehensive picture of a current drive health status and enables foreseeing potential problems with drive failure and loss of sensitive data. What's more, DriveDx shows this information on a user-friendly Mac-...

Bloomberg today reports that Apple is developing a new 3D sensor system for the 2019 iPhone. This sensor would work differently to the TrueDepth sensor system used for Face ID and would be used to add depth sensing features to the rear camera.

Adding depth data to the rear camera would allow for more advanced augmented reality applications. iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus simulate depth by using a dual-camera system, and comparing the parallax of the images from the two lenses.

Notable apps and app updates for Nov. 14, 2017

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.

Rumor: Apple to release 6.5-inch iPhone X, 6.1-inch...

Because next year’s model is always critical, Apple is said to have three new iPhone models in the works for a late 2018 launch. Two of the new handsets are said to cross the six-inch threshold with edge-to-edge OLED and traditional LCD screens.

Assorted guru and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Industries issued a note to investors on Monday, stating that that Apple has a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone on tap for launch in the second half of 2018. This handset would presumably serve as a sort of “iPhone X Plus,” taking the general size of a Plus-sized iPhone and adding an edge-to-edge OLED display.

Kuo stated that Apple is also working on a new LCD model with a 6.1-inch display. Kuo stated he believes this model will target the low-end and mid-range smartphone markets.

It’s stated that the new model will “differ significantly” from the OLED models and will feature a lower-resolution display as well as be priced between $650 and $750. It’s also thought that this model will...

Hacker group claims iPhone X Face ID feature can be...

It’s been noted that Apple’s the iPhone X’s Face ID feature can be fooled by an identical twin. Now it looks like a mask might do the trick as well.

On Friday, Vietnamese security firm Bkav released a blog post and video showing that—by all appearances—they’d cracked Face ID with a composite mask of 3-D-printed plastic, silicone, makeup, and simple paper cutouts, which in combination tricked an iPhone X into unlocking. That demonstration, which has yet to be confirmed publicly by other security researchers, could poke a hole in the expensive security of the iPhone X, particularly given that the researchers say their mask cost just $150 to make.

The hack stands as a proof-of-concept for the time being, so the average iPhone owner isn’t at grave risk.

Bkav, offered the following comments:

“Apple has done this not so well. Face ID can be fooled by mask, which means it is not an effective security measure.”

In the following video, one of the Bkav...

Apple Could Launch Two New Full-Screen iPhones Next...

Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects to see two new full-screen iPhones next year: one will have a 6.5-inch OLED display, essentially making it a Plus version of the iPhone X; and the other will have a 6.1-inch LCD display, likely making it more like a full-screen version of the current Plus-sized iPhone. Both are said to have the notch. The Verge reports: In his research note, which was reported by MacRumors, Kuo writes that Apple is hoping to "satisfy various needs of the high-end market" by expanding its full-screen product line. At the high end will be the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone; beneath that will be an updated version of the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X; and finally, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will sit below both them. Kuo predicts that the 6.1-inch phone will be priced somewhere between $649 to $749 and be set apart by having a less-dense screen resolution, offering a worse picture. If Apple does introduce a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, $749 certainly seems too cheap for it to sell at...

New Emirates First Class suite


Emirates unveiled its new first class suites for its Boeing 777 and the amenities surpass most luxury hotels. Inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, each zero-gravity seat is enclosed in its own cabin with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors for complete privacy. Everything from the 32-inch TV screen, lights, and temperature are remote controlled. For those not lucky enough to snag a window seat, each interior room is equipped with its own virtual windows that project the view from outside the aircraft using real-time camera technology.

I’ve flown First Class before but I can’t imagine ever being able to afford First Class at this level. That’s a real shame because I’m headed to Australia in a few weeks and the flight is literally 24 hours in total. I’d love this

A new study by health startup Cardiogram and the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) suggests wearables like the Apple Watch, Fitbit and others are able to accurately detect common but serious conditions like hypertension and sleep apnea, as noted by TechCrunch.

Cardiogram and UCSF previously demonstrated the ability for the Apple Watch to detect abnormal heart rhythm with a 97% accuracy. This new study shows the Watch can detect sleep apnea with a 90% accuracy and hypertension with an 82% accuracy.

The study of 6,115 participants was implemented to evaluate whether a novel deep neural network (DNN) can predict cardiovascular risk factors from off-the-shelf wearables with a photoplethysmographic (PPG)...

We’ve already heard reports of Face ID making its way to the iPad Pro next year, but you also have to think it’s coming to the Mac lineup at some point as well. And that’s what I’m most excited about…

Review: Advanced Audio GT-R

We've had the pleasure of reviewing a few of Advanced's headphones this year; this company seemed to come out of nowhere just recently, and in the intervening months has quickly turned out a varied product offering of IEMs, portable and Bluetooth DAC/amps, and even a Bluetooth speaker. Though Advanced started with affordable in-ears, this month they unveiled two higher-end offerings aimed at the audio enthusiast: the Alpha and GT-R planar magnetic headphones. Today we're taking a look at the soon-to-be-released Advanced GT-R, a compact over-ear with detachable cables. It's a well-built headphone and, though we think many will like its sound, it's a bit soft for our tastes.{/exp:char_limit}

Review: Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac

Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac was released a few months ago, and since then I've been using it to run Windows, Linux, Mac and even Android virtual machines on my 27-inch iMac.

A lot of MacBook Pros with Touch Bar have been sold in the past year or so, and it's not surprising that Parallels decided to add Touch Bar support to Parallels Desktop 13. The Touch Bar support is integrated with Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Windows, as well as a handful of browsers including Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.

Brydge has been designing keyboards for iPads for quite a while, so it wasn’t surprising to see that they were one of the few accessory manufacturers to release a new keyboard for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. In this Apple World Today review, I’ll take a detailed look at the US$139.99 Brydge 10.5 Keyboard.


The Brydge 10.5 Keyboard uses the design cues from earlier models made by Brydge. By that, I mean that the keyboard features a pair of padded pivoting grips (see image below) that hold onto the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, turning the iPad into a small clamshell device. Think of it as a small laptop and you’ve got the correct idea. This is one of the few accessory keyboards for the iPad Pro that can be removed in seconds without having to wrestle with removing it from a shell.

So far, it's impossible to know because the researchers have evaded key questions about how they went about breaking into the device.

iOS 11.2: Apple releases third beta to developers

Updated 11/13/17: The third iOS 11.2 beta is available for developers. The public beta version should follow in a couple days.

iOS 11 is the biggest change to Apple’s mobile operating system in years. It’s so ambitious in scope that many of it’s promised features still haven’t shipped yet. iOS 11.1 mostly fixed bugs and brought us a bunch of new emoji, but iOS 11.2 is more substantial, with the addition of Apple Pay Cash. Hopefully, it will also introduce iMessage in iCloud.

Here’s what we know about 11.2 so far. What’s in it, when it’s coming, and how you can grab the beta right now.

Review: JBL Link10 Voice-activated Portable Speaker

Recently, we took a look at the Invoke, a home speaker made by JBL's sister company, Harmon Kardon. We liked the Invoke as a speaker, but didn't like its virtual assistant, Cortana. We talked to HR and, this week, we've got a new assistant in a new office — the JBL Link10, powered by the Google Assistant. We find that although the Link10 has a lot going for it, some limitations apparently caused by Google Assistant require us to re-calibrate what "portable" means. {/exp:char_limit}

Midnight Fog version of Nike Apple Watch Cellular +...

A Midnight Fog edition of the Nike Apple Watch Cellular + GPS will be available Tuesday, Nov. 14, at and Nike retail stores for $399. No info yet on whether it will be sold by Apple, as well, though I suspect it will.

The Midnight Fog smartwatch is designed as a match for the Midnight Fog Nike Air VaporMax running shoes ($190) that roll out Nov. 24 globally (and Nov. 27 in North America). 

The Nike+ Run Club app is integrated into Apple Watch Nike+ editions and offers daily motivation through smart run reminders, challenges from friends and even alerts informing when the weather is right to get outside. Training data, including pace, distance and heart rate are available at a glance, and through shared run summaries, the app promotes friendly competition, even allowing users to send fist bumps to each other, right from the wrist.

Rumor: the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus is coming next year

Forget the iPhone X; it’s already old news. I want the iPhone Plus.

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple has a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone planned for the second half of 2018 that would be the general size of a Plus-sized iPhone and add an edge-to-edge OLED display. 

The iPhone X sports a 5.8-inch display. Kuo says the tech giant is also working on a new LCD model with a large 6.1-inch display that will be targeted toward the low-end and mid-range smartphone markets.

The LCD model will "differ significantly" from the OLED models, according to Kuo. For instance, it will pack a lower-resolution display to keep pricing between $650 and $750. However, Kuo adds that the LCD model will feature Face ID and advanced cameras to replace Touch ID.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that Apple’s production of the iPhone 8 may decrease by over 50 percent this quarter due to strong consumer preference for the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X models. According to a research note obtained by MacRumors, demand for the iPhone 8 has been lower than expected and could result in fewer orders for Apple’s supplier Pegatron. While Apple doesn’t disclose iPhone sales on a per-model…

How to turn your iPad into the best digital photo...

You can easily spend between $100 and $200 on a Wi-Fi digital photo frame, but these often have clunky interfaces for syncing photos and the displays can be quite poor. A better solution may be repurposing an old iPad or putting your current iPad in photo frame mode for special occasions.

Apple used to include a handy photo slideshow button on the iPad lock screen years ago, but this feature was abandoned with iOS 7 and later. While I’d love to see this feature return in the future, it’s possible to create a Wi-Fi digital photo frame mode for your iPad using built-in features in iOS today.

Apple’s ‘geniuses’ are straining under the iPhone’s...

Kif Leswing, Business Insider:

According to numerous blue-shirted “geniuses” that Business Insider spoke to, a rising tide of store visitors and on-the-job performance expectations have pushed the system to the breaking point.


Retail employees notice that the stores are packed. One says that his store can’t keep up. “We haven’t been able to keep up with traffic since I started 8 years ago,” a senior Genius at a small store in the Midwest that has yet to be redesigned told Business Insider. “I wouldn’t even walk in the store because of how crowded it gets. During Christmas [season] you can hardly move.”

Even consumers who purchased their phones through their wireless carriers now increasingly turn to the Apple store as their de-facto service center. In some cases, the arrangement is deliberate: T-Mobile earlier this year started bundling AppleCare, Apple’s warranty and service program, into its own device insurance program, funneling its own...

Qualcomm rejects Broadcom’s takeover bid

Qualcomm has rejected Broadcom’s $130 billion takeover bid, contending the offer “dramatically undervalues” the company’s position in mobile technology and comes with “significant regulatory uncertainty,” according to Law 360.

Last week Broadcom offered to buy Qualcomm in a deal worth $130 billion. The U.S. wireless and broadband giant said it would be willing to offer $70 per share in cash and stock for the world’s dominate supplier of broadband processors. It’s uncertain how such a deal would have affected the legal battle between Apple and Qualcomm, but now the point is apparently moot.

In January, Apple filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm, alleging the chip supplier demanded unfair terms for its...

Rumor: future HomePods could include Face ID

Future versions of the not-yet—available Apple HomePod could come with 3D-sensing cameras supporting Face ID, similar to the front-facing technology on the iPhone X, according to Nikkei Asian Review.

"We see trends that engineers are designing smart speakers that will not only come with voice recognition but also incorporate features such as facial and image recognition," President David Ho told reporters. "Such AI-related features are set to make people's lives more convenient and to make the product easier to use." He added, however, that he was unsure at the moment whether smart speakers with more AI features in the future would become a hit in the market.

Ho didn’t specify which product he was talking about, but, according to Nikkei Asian Review, analysts said he’s likely referring to the next generation of...

How Corning’s crash project for Steve Jobs helped...

Tim Bajarin, Fast Company:

About six months before the iPhone hit store shelves in 2007, Steve Jobs called Corning’s CEO, Wendell Weeks, and asked him if he could create a glass cover for a new Apple product that would resist scratches and breakage.


The original iPhone spec called for a plastic cover over the touchscreen display. The story goes that Jobs, after using a prototype iPhone for a few weeks, became very worried that the device’s display would get scratched when jumbled around in user’s pockets with keys and coins. So he gathered his engineers and demanded a new glass covering be used for the iPhone. Hence Jobs’s phone call to Weeks.


While many other smartphone makers have crowed about using Gorilla Glass, Apple has rarely (if ever) publicly acknowledged Corning as the maker of the iPhone’s glass cover.

Corning is a critical part of the iPhone’s success and the iPhone a critical part of Corning’s growth as well. If you...

Judge: Straight Path can’t ‘wiggle out’ of appellate...

U.S. District Judge William Alsup told Straight Path IP Group at a hearing Thursday that when the Federal Circuit saved its Internet telephone patents from “obliteration,” its decision narrowed the patents’ scope, and the company can’t now “wiggle out” of the appellate ruling, reports Law 360.

In June 2016, Straight Path Group, a subsidiary of fixed wireless spectrum leasing firm Straight Path Communications, sued Apple for patent violation, this one regarding VoIP. Straight Path is a non-practicing entity — in other words, a “patent troll.” A patent troll is an individual or an organization that purchases and holds patents for unscrupulous purposes such as stifling competition or launching patent infringement suits...

Some iPhone X are apparently experiencing "crackling" or "buzzing" sounds coming from the smartphone's front-facing earpiece speaker at high volumes. Over two dozen users have said they are affected in a MacRumors discussion topic about the matter, while similar reports have surfaced on Twitter and Reddit since the smartphone launched.

MacRumors says that, on affected devices, the crackling sounds occur with any kind of audio playback, including phone calls, music, videos with sound, alarms, and ringtones. The issue doesn't appear to be limited to any specific iPhone X configuration or iOS version.

Hackers Say They've Broken Face ID a Week After...

Andy Greenberg, writing for Wired: When Apple released the iPhone X on November 3, it touched off an immediate race among hackers around the world to be the first to fool the company's futuristic new form of authentication. On Friday, Vietnamese security firm Bkav released a blog post and video showing that -- by all appearances -- they'd cracked Face ID with a composite mask of 3-D-printed plastic, silicone, makeup, and simple paper cutouts, which in combination tricked an iPhone X into unlocking. That demonstration, which has yet to be confirmed publicly by other security researchers, could poke a hole in the expensive security of the iPhone X, particularly given that the researchers say their mask cost just $150 to make. But it's also a hacking proof-of-concept that, for now, shouldn't alarm the average iPhone owner, given the time, effort, and access to someone's face required to recreate it. Bkav, meanwhile, didn't mince words in its blog post and FAQ on the research. "Apple...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that production problems with the iPhone X are over, and about 26 million units of the smartphone should ship in the holiday quarter.

The analyst also says that, given the demand for the iPhone 8 Plus being greater than that of the iPhone 8, production of the smaller smartphone is expected to fall between 50% and 60% in the holiday quarter. Kuo believes that the iPhone 8 Plus is "cannibalizing demand" for the iPhone 8, and some of Apple's manufacturing partners will switch production lines from the iPhone 8 to the iPhone X to work out supply and demand balance issues.

There’s never been a mobile gaming sensation quite like Pokémon Go, and in summer 2016, Niantic’s game had millions of people wandering their neighborhoods to catch digital monsters. You could see it on the faces of the people staring down at their phones as they shambled around: the excitement of catching a new Pokémon for the first time or winning a gym battle, or alternately, the frustration of the game’s many early glitches.

But there might be another mobile phenomenon just like it next year or soon after: Niantic and Warner Bros. announced that they’re working on Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, a new location-based, augmented reality game. It will seemingly follow the Pokémon Go mold as it sends you around the real world to learn spells, battle magical creatures, and soak in some of that media universe’s ample...

External Link: Apple Defends Its Tax Practices

Apple is once again in the news for shuffling its cash hoard among various countries to minimize its tax burden. The company has released a sprawling statement defending its practices, stating that it not only follows all applicable laws, but is in fact the largest taxpayer in the world. However, Apple continues to call for international tax reform and simplification to help it repatriate its overseas funds. The reality is that many large businesses play legal shell games to minimize liabilities — fiscal and otherwise — and corporations squirreling away cash in low-tax countries is a side effect of globalism that’s difficult to prevent.
