Notable apps and app updates for April 18, 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.

iOS Apps/Updates

Cool Off is a new app that uses a proprietary monitoring system to notify users when they can use natural, greener methods to cool their home instead of using energy consuming air conditioners (A/Cs). It focuses on helping users reduce the household carbon footprint, all while saving on their electric costs. There's a free version and a premium version that removes advertisements and offers automatic scheduled monitoring.

macOS Apps/Updates

Logitech announces first HomeKit programmable button...

Logitech has today announced the POP Smart Button, a small toggle switch that you can place around your home and trigger smart home actions with a quick press. The POP is the first programmable button to support Apple HomeKit, although it isn’t actually on sale yet. It will be available exclusively at Apple Stores soon.

The POP accessories require a hub; Logitech will sell a bundle of one button and one hub for $60. Owners of the first-generation POP Home Switch are out of luck, they will be getting a software update but it will not add HomeKit integration.

Report: New iMacs to launch in Q3 and ‘server-grade...

Apple has already announced that it will launch new iMacs later this year, including models aimed at pro users. Today, Digitimes reportedly reveals some details about what the iMac update will bring.

The report says that the consumer iMac models are going into production next month, with a launch in the second half of the year. An update is certainly due; the latest 5K iMac launched in late 2015. The pro iMac will seemingly launch later, with ‘server-grade’ components …

Logitech announces the HomeKit-compatible POP Smart...

Logitech today announced a new version of its POP Home Switch that works to turn HomeKit accessories or scenes on or off with the push of a button. The new POP Smart Button (US$59.95) and POP Add-on Smart Button ($39.95) will be available at Apple stores and Apple.com stores (no date set yet) exclusively at launch, with expansion to other retailers at a later date.

The POP Smart Button Kit consists of one smart button plus a POP bridge to connect the button to a Wi-Fi network. That button, which is available in White, Alloy, Coral and Teal, recognizes three gestures -- a simple press, a double-press, and a press-and-hold. Each gesture can trigger a specific preset command.

What's nice about this is that the user -- or a user's family member or guest -- doesn't need to have an iPhone or iPad at hand. With a touch of a POP Smart Button, any HomeKit-compatible accessory or scene can be turned on or off. The POP Smart Button is...

Earlier today, an analyst report claimed that one option that Apple is considering with the iPhone 8 is ditching Touch ID altogether. The analyst note followed earlier reports claiming that Apple was facing low yield rates in integrating Touch ID beneath the display, perhaps looking towards a rear-device implementation.

Would you still buy the iPhone 8 even if it lacked Touch ID?

A while back we took a look at the olloclip Core Lens Set (fisheye, super-wide, and macro 15x lenses) with the new Connect interchangeable lens system. This lens set simply clips onto an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, but I hadn’t really used the lenses because I don’t like carrying an unprotected iPhone. Today we’re looking at the ollo Case for iPhone 7 Plus (US29.95) to see how it works with the Connect Lenses (purchased separately).

The biggest bummer at a festival like Coachella should be a spilled beer or a long bathroom line, not having your iPhone stolen by a highly ambitious but also bumbling criminal. Awful person Reinaldo De Jesus Henao found himself in handcuffs on Easter Sunday, arrested with more than 100 smartphones in his backpack, nabbed with the help of Find My iPhone.

According to reports by KMIR and Consequence of Sound, victims noticed their phones missing and quickly used Find My iPhone on their friends’ phones to actually locate 36-year-old Henao still at the festival. The victims followed the suspect and alerted security, who was able to hold him until police arrived.

Steve “Woz” Wozniak thinks the company he co-founded (that would be Apple) will still be around in 2075, as will Google and Facebook, he said in discussing next weekend’s Silicon Valley Comic Con (SVCC), “The Future of Humanity: Where Will We Be in 2075?” The three-day conference, which Wozniak helped create last year, explores the intersection of pop culture and technology.

"Apple will be around a long time, like IBM (which was founded in 1911)," Wozniak said in an interview with USA Today. "Look at Apple's cash ($246.1 billion, as of the end of its last fiscal quarter). It can invest in anything. It would be ridiculous to not expect them to be around (in 2075).

I don't know about you but I can't seem to get out of my head the image of that poor Asian doctor who, seemingly unconscious, was dragged off that United flight. The fact that the airline did that to a 69-year-old doctor just so it could save money moving employees around is nearly as unbelievable as the initial tone-deaf response from United's CEO, who blamed the passenger. It was only later that he offered an actual apology. While the United debacle was going on, I happened to be reviewing Qualcomm's counterclaim against Apple, and holy crap.

Internet Archive Adds Early Macintosh OS and App...

An anonymous reader writes: The Internet Archive has added a curated collection of Mac operating system and software emulators from 1984 through 1989. The Internet Archive already hosts browser-based emulators of early video games and other operating systems, but this is its first foray into Mac software. The collection includes classic applications like MacPaint, programming tools such as MacBasic, and many games including Dark Castle. Each app can be run in an in-browser emulator and is accompanied by an article that chronicles its history. It's fun to play with the apps in the collection and realize just how far apps have come since the earliest days of the Mac. It's also remarkable how many computing conventions used today were introduced during those earliest days.

Analyst: there’s a chance the ‘iPhone 8’ could ship...

This ain’t gonna happen, but in a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — Andy Hargreaves, an equity research analyst with Pacific Crest Securities, thinks there’s a possibility that the “iPhone 8” could ship without a fingerprint sensor of any kind.

“At this point, we do not believe Apple's optical fingerprint module provider has firm orders for production, which suggests Apple does not have functionality of the optical fingerprint sensor ready," he expounds. "Additionally, we believe Apple has evaluated Synaptic's optical fingerprint solution, but that it has not been qualified."

Hargreaves suggested that if Apple can solve problems in the "next month or so," it should be able to place bulk orders for modules. Even then, however, that would allegedly translate into a delayed next gen smartphone aunch.

The best case scenario based on rumors is that Apple manages to implement the fingerprint scanner into the new OLED display, although low yield rates may rule that out this year. The less desired scenario is Apple moves...

Apple went all-out in its patent assault on Samsung beginning in 2012, when Steve Jobs' promised "thermonuclear war" against Android became a reality. The patents used by the Cupertino device maker weren't just challenged in court, though. Various parties have challenged Apple's most important patents at the US Patent and Trademark Office, as well.

On Friday, the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit issued an opinion (PDF) about an "ex parte reexam," filed against Apple's patent by an anonymous party. The reexam claimed that one of the patents upholding Apple's big win against Samsung, US Patent No. 7,844,915, never should...

On the design of the new (and old) Mac Pro

Thoughtful post from Marco Arment on the current Mac Pro design, with collected thoughts on where Apple should go with the model currently in the works.

This particular paragraph captured my feelings about the 2013 Mac Pro design:

While minimalism is one aspect of one view of good design, it’s often overused, underconsidered, and misunderstood, resulting in products with surface-level appeal that don’t actually work very well because they were optimized for visual design and minimalism rather than overall real-world usefulness.

And from the wrapup:

There is no single design, no single set of trade-offs, that addresses a large set of pro users: they all want different things, and the only way to serve that with one product line is to have it be extremely versatile and offer a wide variety of configuration options. You can’t do that with a minimalist industrial-design indulgence like the 2013 Mac Pro.

Good read.

There are several reasons it may be helpful to track your cellular data usage. You might not have an unlimited cellular data plan right now and may be wondering if you should switch to one, you may be trying to cut down on overage fees, or you might want to discover if you could reduce your current plan and save some money.

You also might be having issues with applications that are using more cellular data in the background than expected. Let’s take a look at a few different ways to track and manage your cellular usage.

∞ Why Nintendo killed the NES Classic Edition

Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition is a fascinating case study in marketing. Since Nintendo announced the console in November, they’ve sold almost a million of them in North America, all while maintaining a constant shortage, creating a demand frenzy. Given the simplicity of the product itself (it’s a retro product, no cutting edge parts), I’ve always seen that shortage as artificial.

As we reported Friday, Nintendo has now pulled the plug on the NES Classic, announcing that the last run will ship in April. Nintendo has a successful product, was basically printing money, and they walked away from that particular business.

The question is, why?

Still haven't bought a VPN? Check out our deals...

AWT readers who have been paying attention to our deals have noticed that we're pushing a lot of VPN (virtual private network) deals these days. Why? Because there's never been a more important time for individuals to take control of their personal Internet privacy, and that is something that a VPN can provide. Today's deal is an incredible bargain -- a lifetime license for VPN Unlimited for just US$39 or a 3-year license for $19.

The new leak—purportedly from a Foxconn employee—supports last week’s images of a supposed rendering of an iPhone with the Touch ID, placing that model in contention with another that would place the sensor on the front like current…

A report out of Korea claims that Samsung will not only be manufacturing the OLED screens for the iPhone 8, but also playing a key role in the supply chain management for related components.

Samsung Display, the display-making unit of Samsung Electronics, is the only panel maker globally that mass-produces OLED panels for smartphones. Its market share stands at a whopping 95 percent currently. Because Apple is still less experienced in OLED, the display maker is said to be playing a key role in the overall supply chain management that consists of its own key parts suppliers …

Amazon has released a software update for its line of Kindle electronic book readers to support ragged right text alignment. Previously, the Kindle readers displayed only fully justified text, which spans the width of the page but often suffers from odd gaps between words. You can find the new alignment option on the Page tab of the Font panel. The software update is available for all sixth- through eighth-generation Kindle readers, and it also features faster highlighting and better support for Japanese manga comics.

Einstein's legacy has introduced PhotoStory 1.0.1, an image-to-video transformation app for the Mac. It turns a collection of images into a digital movie for use in promotion, storytelling or for creating time-lapsed applications. 

PhotoStory features modern codecs, variable speed playback and a WYSIWYG [what you see is what you get] user interface. You can share the output movie using Vimeo, Facebook and other Internet services.

With PhotoStory, you can drag and drop images into the desired order for output or sort the collection according to name or date. Set the playback rate by hand or choose from almost 20 frame-rate-based preset options. Control the background color and placement of images within the frame of the output movie PhotoStory allows you to create new movies in a variety of formats for a range of devices and playback situations.

The app requires macOS 10.11 or higher. It’s available for $9.99 at the...

The Apple TV will gain multi-user support and picture-in-picture with tvOS 11, the next major update of its operating system, according to Israeli site, The Verifier — as noted by AppleInsider. tvOS 11 will almost certainly be unveiled at June’s Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC).

Multi-user support will purportedly tailor onscreen content to the active profile/Apple ID. Folks will not only see their personal Apple Music, iCloud, and iTunes content, but also their own apps, according to The Verifier, quoting an unnamed “reliable source.” So far, only Macs have offered multiple user accounts for everyone. iPads technically support it, but only in classroom settings.

This mock-up is courtesy of "The Verifiier."

Apple offering iPad Air 2 units to some customers...

If you’re looking for a replacement fourth-gen iPad, Apple may send you a newer and more capable iPad Air 2 as a substitute from Apple Stores and authorized service providers. The company is apparently implementing the new policy, allowing its repair staff to ship an iPad Air 2 for a unit replacement when stock of the aging and now discontinued 4th gen iPad isn’t available.

A leaked company memo offered the following information:

Starting March 30th, iPad 4th generation whole unit repairs may be substituted to iPad Air 2.

The memo also instructs staff to inform customers about the replacement iPad’s available colors and capacity. The iPad Air 2 introduced a new gold color option, and most recently only had 32GB and 128GB storage options while 16GB and 64GB models were discontinued earlier. As such, users may receive a slight upgrade in storage when getting a replacement in addition to the tablet’s more advanced components.

While the iPad Air 2,...

California DMV grants Apple permit to test self-...

Apple’s self-driving car project is another step closer to completion.

The company has been granted a permit that enables it to test autonomous vehicles on public roads in the state of California, according to the California DMV website.

Apple was added to the list of permit holders that are allowed to participate in the Autonomous Vehicle Tester Program in California on Friday, joining companies like Google, Tesla, BMW, Honda, Ford, Nissan, and more.

The permit process for autonomous vehicle testing requires multiple steps, including descriptions of the specific vehicles being tested, which suggests that Apple may have a workable prototype on hand. Whether Apple actually deploys a vehicle remains to be seen. Should Apple begin vehicle testing, the company will need to file public reports.

In California, all companies that participate in the Autonomous Vehicle Testing Program must file Disengagement Reports that outline how many miles were covered...

How to force the Trash to empty in macOS Sierra

Sometimes the darned Trash can on the Mac doesn’t want to empty. But you can make it. If you Mac tells you that you can’t empty the trash because a file is in use, do this:

  • Quit any app that you were using with the file, then empty the Trash.
  • If that doesn't work, the app might have one or more background processes that are using the file. Restart your Mac, then empty the Trash.
  • If that doesn't work, you might have a startup item or login item that is using the file. To temporarily prevent such items from opening automatically, start up in safe mode by holding down the Shift key while your Mac starts up. Then empty the Trash and restart your Mac normally.

If you can’t delete files for other reasons: 

  • Start up from macOS Recovery by holding down Command-R while your Mac starts up.
  • When the macOS Utilities window appears, select Disk Utility and click Continue.
  • In Disk Utility, select the disk that contains...

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has told USA Today that Apple will still be around in 2075 – alongside Google and Facebook.

Apple will be around a long time, like IBM (which was founded in 1911). Look at Apple’s cash ($246.1 billion, as of the end of its last fiscal quarter). It can invest in anything. It would be ridiculous to not expect them to be around (in 2075). The same goes for Google and Facebook.

He made the prediction ahead of the Silicon Valley Comic Con, whose theme is ‘The Future of Humanity: Where Will We Be in 2075?’ and said that he and Steve Jobs made that assumption from the start …

Zyxel’s PLA5236 1000 Mbps Powerline AC900 Wireless Extender is a useful product for extending a wired or wireless network since it supports both Powerline and Wireless AC technologies. It offers high-speed connectivity via Wireless AC at speeds up to 867 Mbps and to Ethernet devices via two Gigabit Ethernet ports (and a maximum range of 300 meters over a power line.)

For my household, the PLA5236 — which costs about $100 — is used to provide wireless connectivity in locations throughout the ol’ homestead where the signal from the router is weak. However, others will find its Gigabit Ethernet ports great for connecting console games, set-top boxes, and more. 

It’s relatively easy to get the PLA5236 Powerline Wi-Fi extender up and running by using the Easy Setup app that’s available for iOS and Android devices. You don't have to deal with any...
