India: Apple Pay to be available to customers who...

Apple is teaming up with Ola, India’s largest ride-hailing company, to make Apple Music available to customers who order a ride, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Ola — which also announced partnerships with Sony, Qualcomm and Audio Compass —  said the service will be made available in some of its vehicles as part of a platform called Ola Play. When passengers book an Ola ride, they will be able to interact with an in-car tablet to control the vehicle’s air conditioning, music, watch videos and even read ebooks. 

“Cars were initially built for the driver,” Ola Chief Executive Bhavish Agarwal said during a news conference reported on by India media outlet YourStory. “But with ride-sharing, the control needs to be there for the passenger...

The Apple Daily Report for Nov. 22, 2016

The AWT News Update is on hiatus while my compadre, Steve, takes a road trip. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

According to numerous reports said to be out of Apple headquarters, the company's Chief Design Officer Jony Ive hasn't contributing much to Apple's consumer goods design as of late, and has been more interested in architecture and similar projects for the last few years.

According to a New York Times piece, Apple now directly employs 80,000 people in the U.S. The company also uses 69 supplier facilities in 33 states to manufacture parts for its products employs 6,000...

There’s a useful new accessibility enhancement in iOS 10 designed to help those who have trouble seeing small print — this new feature turns the iPhone camera into a virtual magnifying glass. Although you’ve been able to use the built-in zoom feature in the normal Camera app in a pinch (no pun intended), the new Magnifier feature not only provides quicker access — only a triple-click of the Home button is needed — but allows for…

On Jony Ive’s Role at Apple

Abdel Ibrahim, writing for AppAdvice:

In the latest episode of The Talk Show, John Gruber
discusses with Six Colors founder, Jason Snell, about Jony Ive’s
role in the company and how it’s changed in the years since Steve
Jobs’ passing. He specifically makes mention that he’s heard that
Ive’s role has changed in a way where he’s not as much involved in
the design of physical hardware as he used to be.

I’ve heard that he has lately been checked out or not as directly
involved with product design and that he’s been largely focused on
architecture, meaning the spaceship campus and the new stores. And
that maybe the other top-level executive who’s been working the
most with Ive is Angela Arhendts.

The comment comes on the back of Apple releasing...

Don't play this video link unless you want your...

Beware the 5-second video that will bring your iPhone to a complete halt.

This week, a corrupt video link with the potential to crash any iOS device started making the rounds. Clicking on the MP4 link in question will play a video that will cause your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to overload and eventually freeze to the point of making the Home button, the power button, and the touchscreen totally unresponsive. The only way to get your iOS device working properly is to perform a hard reset.

According to The Verge, clicking the link generates a loop that will force your iPhone to crash about 10 seconds after the short video ends. The Verge tested the link on several devices running iOS 10.1, as well as the iOS 10.2 beta. They all became unresponsive.

Apple announces a one-day sale for Black Friday

Apple doesn’t always get in on Black Friday, the unofficial shopping holiday the day after Thanksgiving. In some previous years, the company has offered modest discounts on some products, or a free gift card with purchase, but last year the company sat Black Friday out all together.

This year, Apple’s in. The company announced a “one-day shopping event” with a teaser on its website. We just don’t know much else.

Apple’s online store already suggests gift ideas for various people, like add-on iPhone lenses for photography buffs, microphones and instruments for musicians, and game controllers and high-tech toys for kids. So Apple could organize its sale by the people on your shopping list, or just help you find the perfect accessories for people who own iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Apple TV.

We already gave you the rundown on requirements for connecting your old DisplayPort and HDMI displays to the new MacBook Pro, and if you need a new monitor now, the best option going forward is probably to go all-in on USB-C. That goes not only for MacBook Pro or 12-inch MacBook users, but also anyone who wants to be future-proofed as Apple moves to Thunderbolt 3 on other devices going forward (most displays have HDMI and/or DisplayPort for your other Macs). 

These are the best 4K and 5K USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 displays available so far:

Fedora 25 Now Available -- Makes It Easier To Switch...

Reader BrianFagioli writes: After the release of both alpha and beta versions, Fedora 25 is officially here and ready for production machines. If you aren't familiar with the popular Linux-based operating system, please know that it is the distribution of choice for the founder of the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds. One of the most endearing qualities of Fedora is its focus on only offering truly free open source software. Also, you can always count on a very modern version of the Linux kernel being available. Despite having very up-to-date packages, it is always very stable too. My favorite aspect, however, is the commitment to the GNOME desktop environment; other DEs are available, though. The team says, "Fedora 25 Workstation now makes it easier to for Windows and OS X users to get started, with Fedora Media Writer serving as the default download for those operating systems. This tool helps users find and download the current Fedora release and write it to removable media, like a...

Nope, Apple will never license iOS

In a 2014 article for ZDNet, Senior Technology Editor Jason Perlow said that, with consumer iPad growth tapping out, Apple needs to do the "unthinkable" to push into a line of business applications and vertical markets. The "unthinkable" is licensing iOS.

However, this will never happen. Perlow says that, for Apple to grow tablet share, it has to expand into additional markets. And the largest market of opportunity is enterprise line of business applications and verticals. He may be right in that regard, but Apple will NEVER license iOS under CEO Tim Cook's leadership. That's a lesson he learned from his mentor, Steve Jobs.

In 1997, after returning to Apple, Jobs killed the Mac clone program implemented by former CEO Gil Amelio. The program was intended to expand the market penetration of the Mac. From 1995 through mid-1997 companies such as Power Computing, Motorola, Radius, DayStar, and UMAX made desktops running...

Apple's new MacBook Pros have gotten some negative feedback (see my review on Monday), but their hardware upgrades and new Touch Bar are expected to make them hot sellers. In fact, with the shipment growth, Apple is expected to return as the fourth largest vendor worldwide in the fourth quarter, according to the DigiTimes Research Group.

Combined shipments of US-based top-tier vendors - HP, Dell and Apple - will account for over 50% of worldwide shipments, notes DigiTimes. Although Chromebooks and China-based brand vendors are expected to perform weakly in the quarter, worldwide notebook shipments are estimated to reach 41.65 million units in the fourth quarter, up 6.4% sequentially thanks to, in part, demand from the year-end holidays is expected to pick up strongly.

Facebook's latest experiment: Helping you find...

Facebook says it’s not a media company, but it just might be turning into a Wi-Fi finder service. Users of the social network’s iOS app report seeing a new feature in the More section that lets them find nearby public Wi-Fi access points.

The feature does not appear to be widely available at the moment, which means this is probably something Facebook is only testing. The social network tests numerous features all the time but this one is particularly notable.

As The Next Web points out, helping users find public Wi-Fi could enable more people to use Facebook Live. If your cellular connection isn’t strong, a nearby Wi-Fi location can be a big help—unless, of course, your Facebook Live broadcast is dependent on your specific location.

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money). 

Gameloft’s Asphalt racing series plodded along for nearly a decade, releasing several entries that were fine but never quite great—and then Asphalt 8: Airborne bucked that trend to a rather startling degree. The 2013 release finally launched the series into the upper echelon of mobile racers, delivering the best arcade driving experience on iPhone and iPad, plus it sold for only $1 at launch. Just a couple months later, it was turned into a free-to-play game.

Here’s another idea for saving the Mac from Apple

It’s been suggested that Apple needs to bring back the Mac clone program or else show its personal computer line some serious love. Here’s another good idea:

 Adam C. Engst, in a TidBITS column dubbed “Understanding Apple’s Marginalization of the Mac,” says Apple could make a Mac division a wholly owned subsidiary of the company a la FileMaker, Inc. Here’s his suggestion:

“Apple … could take FileMaker Inc. as a model. FileMaker, which emerged from the ashes of Claris, is a wholly owned subsidiary, but since the needs of the database development market differ significantly from those of Apple’s other markets, it has presumably made sense to give FileMaker more autonomy than other apps. Even if FileMaker’s independence is a historical accident — I don’...

On one level, the decision seems like a no-brainer for Apple. The company is in the premium product basis. Back in the days when Wi-Fi was a new thing, it made sense for Apple to boost adoption rates by offering...

Apple patent hints at ‘foldable’ iPhones and iPads

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,504,170) for “flexible display devices” that hints at future “foldable” iPhones — and perhaps iPads, as well. In the patent filing, the company says that “it would be desirable to use flexible display technology to provide improved electronic devices.”

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “Electronic devices may be provided that contain multiple housing portions. The housing portions may be coupled together using hinges. The hinges may include hinges based on a three-bar linkage, hinges based on a four-bar linkage, hinges with slotted members, hinges formed from flexible support structures, and hinges based on flexible housing structures. Flexible displays may be mounted to the housing portions overlapping the hinges. 

“When the housing portions in a device are rotated relative to each other, the flexible display may bend. The hinge may be configured to allow the flexible display to be placed in a front-to-front...

AT&T’s DirecTV has been added to the list of single sign-on compatible services for tvOS and iOS. As noted by MacRumors, the addition of its 20 million U.S. subscribers makes it the biggest provider to support the feature so far, displacing Dish Network and Sling TV. 

With the early beta of single sign-on, there were only a few supported TV providers: Dish Network and its Sling TV subsidiary, as well as small regional services GVTC Communications and Hotwire rounded out the list. 

Single sign-on is activated in tvOS 10.1 beta and iOS 10.2 beta testers. It gives customers in the US a simplified way of enjoying pay-TV video channels.

Users only have to sign in once on Apple TV to enjoy immediate access to their favorite video channels that are included as part of their pay-TV subscription. Once a user is signed into one network app, any other app on Apple TV from participating pay-TV providers will...

Apple began shutting down the wireless router team over the past year, dispersing engineers to other product development groups, including the one handling the Apple TV, said sources who asked not to be named because the decision hasn’t been publicly announced.

Apple hasn’t refreshed its wireless routers since 2013 following years of frequent updates to match new protocols from the wireless industry. The decision to disband the team indicates the company isn’t currently pushing forward with new...

Final Cut Pro rendering almost twice as fast on new...

Tests by freelance video editor Peter Wiggins, who runs the fcp.co website, show that the new 15-inch MacBook Pro is almost twice as fast at video rendering as the original 2012 Retina model.

On to a project rendering test with Final Cut Pro X. All the machines used the same Library and were connected to the same Thunderbolt drive where the ProRes 422 was rendered. Before each test, the render files were deleted.

The project was a one and a half minute sequence made up of multicams, chromakey, drop shadow, repositioning and Motion effects […] So a rough bit of maths and you’ll see that the new 15″ MacBook Pro is nearly twice as fast as the 2012 model.

The holiday season is fast approaching, and I’m awaiting my Apple TV with 4K support. Sadly, it doesn’t seem like I’ll find one under my Christmas tree.

Which is sad and more than a bit ironic. Apple makes the incredible iMac with 5K Retina and has teamed up with LG on a 5K display for the new MacBook Pros. All recent iPhones can record 4K video. But the fourth generation Apple TV merely supports HD video of 1920 x 1080 pixels. 

The lack of 4K support only contributes to the set-top box’s image as a mere “hobby” for Apple. It’s time for the company to give us the fifth generation Apple TV. And, while we’re on the subject, let’s see some 4K content available on the iTunes Store.

The Orbit is great for use on a night stand for reading ebooks in bed. It's convenient for placing on a kitchen counter so you can view recipes on your iPad while cooking. It's also nice for use on a desk.

I work in a children's hospital as a child life specialist. Part of my job is to help divert the child's attention during procedures. We use tablets all day long for the patients to engage in TV shows, music, and games on the tablet. Sometimes patients have to lie on their back or sides and aren't able to move their hands or hold the tablet themselves.

This means that means someone has to hold it for them. I was hoping the Orbit could be used as a tablet holder for this purpose, but it's too heavy to be lugging all over a...

Every so often, a weird bug related to iOS will emerge that causes some sort of temporary misbehaving for users affected by it. For instance, nearly two years ago the infamous “effective power” bug took the internet by storm, and we’ve seen various other similar issues since then.

Now, it has been discovered that playing a certain .mp4 video in Safari on any iOS device will cause the device to slow to a crawl and eventually freeze altogether…

Apple today unveiled a new webpage teasing the upcoming Black Friday shopping holiday. On the webpage, Apple touts that it will be holding a “one-day event” this Friday, much like other retailers do.

Apple, however, has largely stayed out of Black Friday in recent years, instead opting to offload the responsibility of slashing prices to retail partners. If this webpage is any indication though, it seems like Apple might be preparing to reenter the Black Friday game this year…

The new MacBook Pros have been met with a wide array of responses thus far, with some praising the new machines and others viewing them as a step back for a variety of reasons. One common question since the announcement of the new models, however, has centered around why the machines max out at 16GB of RAM.

While Phil Schiller originally penned this limitation on battery life concerns, a new email from the Apple executive offers a bit more insight as to the reasoning…

The Apple Daily Report for Nov. 21, 2016

The AWT News Update is on hiatus while my compadre, Steve, takes a road trip. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

Apple has posted a new Apple Music ad that continues its "distractingly good" campaign. The ad stars Drake, an artist who has developed a good relationship with Apple and its music service.  Apple has also shared a new TV ad called "Frankie's Holiday" in time for the holiday season, accompanied with the tagline "open your heart to everyone." 

Some buyers of Apple's new MacBook Pros are finding that the three-finger drag gesture is working inconsistently on their trackpads, if at all, according to complaints on Apple's support forums and elsewhere. Where the problem is intermittent, it may manifest only on...

As Black Friday approaches, the 9to5Toys team has been working diligently to find the best deals leading up to the biggest deal day of the year. While the Toys team covers all of the big deals and new gear from the retailers you trust, we’re paying particular attention to Apple Deals here.

First, you’ll want to be sure that you’re following 9to5Toys on Twitter, RSS and Facebook for all of the latest deals as they pop up. This is important because retailers have gotten tricky with their Black Friday deals and the best deals often only last minutes at a time. Second, you don’t want to leave your computer on Black Friday.

It’s an old philosophical question: “If a tree falls in the forest, and there’s an LED screen embedded in it for some reason, can it run Doom?” Okay, that metaphor got away from me, but the fact remains that there’s a time-honored tradition to “Running Doom On Technology That Shouldn’t Run Doom.”

In years past we’ve seen the 1993 classic running on a hacked ATM, on a Canon printer, on an oscilloscope, on a giant LED truck, and of course running inside another instance of Doom.

A USB dongle can hijack all your Web accounts and...

A proof of concept from security researcher and software developer Samy Kamkar shows that macOS, Windows, and Linux computers can have any previously active Web logins hijacked merely by plugging in a tiny Unix device via USB or Thunderbolt, even if the computer is locked and password protected, and possibly even when it seems to be asleep. It can also hijack many router brands on the same network.

PoisonTap exploits several interlocked network and browser design features, rather than relying on an operating system, hardware, or browser flaw. This will make it harder to root out and resolve. Kamkar said in an interview, “The interesting attacks to me are by design: how do you exploit the protocol rather than a single buffer overflow that gets patched the next day.”

Twelve South has made sure that your daytime Apple Watch can still be used as your night-time clock; HiRise Duet powers up Apple Watch in Nightstand mode. When you wrap your Apple smartwatch around the support post on its side, it automatically turns it into a bedside alarm clock, with the crown serving as a snooze button. To protect your Watch’s finish when it’s on its side, the base of HiRise Duet is thoughtfully lined with a soft layer of leather. 

The charging stand has a 3.75-inch square footprint. Weighing a pound, or the same as three iPhone 7’s, this stand is designed to stayin play.

One of the Best New VR Things: Buying a Car


I had a fascinating experience last week. I got to see and experience the new Jaguar I-Pace, the company's electric answer to the as-yet-unannounced Tesla Y SUV, long before I'll actually get to see the prototype. I didn't just get to see the car -- I got to understand intimately why the car was created and what went into its design. I got to experience aspects of the vehicle viscerally, without actually getting into it. My experience was possible due to an alliance between Dell, HTC and Jaguar.

Apple To Swap Faulty iPhone 6S Batteries

Apple is offering to replace the batteries of a "small number" of iPhone 6S phones with a fault that makes them unexpectedly shut down. The phones with this fault were manufactured between September and October 2015, it said in a statement. From a report on BBC:Affected devices will suddenly stop working even though the handset's battery has plenty of charge. Anyone with an eligible phone who takes up the offer will get a free replacement battery for their handset. In its announcement, Apple urged customers who believe they have a faulty phone to contact an Apple store, an authorised repair shop or the firm's support line to start the process of getting a new battery. A "limited serial number range" was affected, it said.
