News: More than 180,000 apps could be rendered...

A warning dialog discovered by developers working with the iOS 10.3 beta stating that apps that have not been updated to include 64-bit support “will not work with future versions of iOS” has led Sensor Tower to determine that the new restriction could affect about 8 percent of apps on the App Store, effectively rendering them obsolete. While there’s no solid evidence that iOS 11 will be the final cutoff for apps that are 32-bit-only, Apple…

Google adds a read-it-later feature to Chrome for iOS

Google just added “read it later” bookmarking functionality to the latest version of Chrome for iOS. This appears to be an iOS-only function for now and is similar to Safari’s reading list feature that first rolled out with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion in 2011.

Like Safari’s Reading List, you hit the share button in Chrome and choose Read Later from the menu. Chrome will then save the page for you. To access your reading list, tap the menu button in the upper right corner (the three vertical dots) and select Reading List.

Apple Found Guilty of Russian Price-Fixing

An anonymous reader shares a BBC report: Russia's competition watchdog has found that Apple fixed the prices of certain iPhone models sold in the country. The Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (Fas) said that Apple's local subsidiary told 16 retailers to maintain the recommended prices of phones in the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 families. Non-compliance with the pricing guidelines may have led to the termination of contracts, it found. At the time of the investigation, Apple denied that it controlled its products' pricing, telling Reuters that resellers "set their own prices for the Apple products they sell in Russia and around the world." The regulator said Apple had now ended its price-fixing practices but has not said whether the company faces a fine. The FAS claimed that Apple Rus monitored the retail prices for the iPhone 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s and 6s Plus.

New 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2 reported to be minor upgrade...

With rumors swirling about three different iPads in the wings, but with no event confirmed, it’s still unclear what Apple has in the cards for the spring product releases. There have been rumors about Apple pushing forward production of the edge-to-edge 10.5-inch iPad but an absence of online leaks. An update to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is also expected but the timeline is unclear.

Today, Macotakara is posing the idea that a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2, with the first version released almost a year ago, could be the first new Apple product of the year. It is reportedly a minor, iterative, update over the current iPad Pro with no external design changes.

A recently disclosed vulnerability by Check Point proved that both WhatsApp and Telegram were susceptible to particularly nefarious online attacks. While most attacks only garner tidbits of user data, these allowed attackers to gain full control of user accounts. Once in, attackers could download previously shared photos, contact information, and even more importantly gain access to a user’s friends accounts as well. Both companies acknowledged and released fixes to help patch the web client vulnerabilities.

Drone Diary: The DJI Mavic Pro flies autonomously...

Flying a drone manually is fun, but there are some manoeuvres that are virtually impossible to fly smoothly. Circling an object or person, for example. You’d need to constantly change the balance of forward/backward and left/right inputs to fly the circle in the first place, then simultaneously keep rotating the camera by just the right amount to keep it pointed at the centre of the circle. Anyone who can do that perfectly is either a drone genius or has way more than the usual number of hands.

The DJI Go app offers a range of intelligent flight modes – aka autonomous flying. But a third-party app, Litchi, goes even further: it allows you to program your flight path in Google Earth before you even leave home. As soon as you arrive on site, just load the pre-programmed flight and hit Start.

Some 187,000 apps could be rendered useless with the launch of "iOS 11," according to the app analytics firm Sensor Tower — as noted by AppleInsider. That is the update is when Apple plans to kill 32-bit support.

That seems like a reasonable time table. The next version of iOS 11 will almost certainly be previewed at Apple’s 2017 Worldwide Developer Conference, which will be held June 5-9.

Apple has supported 64-bit apps on iOS since the launch of the iPhone 5s in September 2013. However, the company has also required developers submit new apps with 64-bit support since February 2015 and app updates since June 2015.

Canalys: the smartwatch market will grow 18% in 2017

Good news for the Apple Watch: the Canalys research group predicts that the smartwatch market will grow 18% in 2017, with 28.5 million units being shipped. This will mean the total value of smartwatch shipments in 2017 will reach $10 billion.

Canalys forecasts that there will be further declines in the traditional watch industry as smartwatch manufacturers release more high-end models. As the average selling price of smartwatches climbs, the value of the smartwatch market will reach about two-thirds that of the predicted value of the traditional Swiss watch market this year, according to the research group.

Rare working Apple I heading to auction

In 1976, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak designed and built the Apple I, or Apple-1, the company’s first computer. Of the 175 sold, only 50 to 60 or so remain in existence, including just eight functioning ones, making the iconic machine a rare collector’s item worth significantly more than its original $666.66 price.

Pegatron Corp., one of the two Taiwanese companies that assemble iPhones and iPads, is willing to move that part of its operations to the U.S. if Apple will absorb the additional costs, reports Focus Taiwan.

Pegatron CEO Liao Syh-jang was responding to questions raised at an investor conference about the company's plans for its assembly plants in light of the comments by U.S. President Donald Trump that American brands should keep their production on home soil.

"As long as there is demand, whether the clients are American or Chinese, Pegatron already has its production lines in place," Liao said. "If Trump institutes his Made in America proposal, it will be fine for Pegatron as long the client is willing to absorb the costs.”

There's a lot of debate about whether Trump can bring manufacturing, let alone manufacturing jobs, back to the US of a. Robots and automation have also taken...

Apple Watch shines in Cleveland Clinic heart rate...

Science Daily:

Researchers at Cleveland Clinic put five popular wrist-worn fitness trackers to the test to find out how accurately they gauge heart rate across several types of exercise and intensity levels.

And:

The devices chosen for testing (Apple Watch, Fitbit Blaze, Garmin Forerunner 235, and TomTom Spark Cardio) were based on their popularity and sales figures. Researchers then recorded volunteers’ heart rates at rest and after light, moderate and vigorous exercise across three types of activities, including the treadmill, stationary bike and elliptical (with and without hand levers). Measurements on the wearable devices were compared to readings from the chest strap and EKG.

And:

While the watch-style heart rate monitors may accurately report heart rate at rest, and most were acceptable on the treadmill, they were fairly inaccurate while bicycling or using the elliptical. Of the wrist-worn heart rate monitors, only the Apple Watch provided...

iOS 11 lock screen concept

Matt Birchler:

iOS 11 will all but surely be revealed at WWDC in June this year, and I would expect something to change on the lock screen there. So before Apple shows us what we’re getting in iOS 11, I decided to design my own new lock screen for iOS.

Matt has some excellent ideas here, designed to wring some usefulness from the lock screen, beyond checking the data and time and seeing notifications that have occurred since your last unlock.

I’ve long felt we should have the ability to fine tune what shows up on the lock screen and that Apple should open up the lock screen to developers. For example, I’d love to see the current temp/weather, along with my next appointment, on my lock screen.

Great writeup, worth reading.

Twitter Counter, a third-party analytics service, appears once again to have provided a gateway for hackers to post messages to high-profile Twitter accounts.

An unlikely number of Twitter users suddenly learned to speak Turkish on Wednesday, posting an inflammatory message in the language replete with Nazi swastikas.

Among those posting the message were the Twitter accounts of Forbes magazine, the Atlanta Police Department, and Amnesty International, one of the few hacked accounts one might expect to speak Turkish.

Fears that these accounts had all been hacked were quickly allayed, when Twitter identified a third-party app as being to blame.

Thousands of Twitter accounts, including high profile ones belonging to users such as Forbes, Amnesty International, the BBC’s North American service, and tennis star Boris Becker were compromised on Wednesday morning, resulting in them tweeting propaganda related to Turkey’s escalating diplomatic conflict with Germany and the Netherlands.

Apple joins Google, other tech companies in...

Apple has joined Amazon and Microsoft in a court filing which supports Google’s decision to resist an FBI warrant demanding that it hand over emails stored outside the USA. The tech companies argue that this would set a ‘troubling’ precedent.

As reported, the FBI served search warrants ordering Google to surrender emails belonging to suspects in a criminal investigation. The emails themselves were stored on a server outside the USA. Google, in turn, refused, arguing that a domestic search warrant could not apply to data stored in a foreign country.

A Pennsylvania court both disagreed and instructed Google to comply with the warrant. Google has since appeared the ruling, with Apple, Amazon and Microsoft jointly filing an amicus brief in support of Google.

The filing does not suggest that the government is necessarily wrong to seek to extend the law to data stored overseas, but rather argues that the current law does not permit this, and it is for Congress –...

It looks like the interference issue on the LG UltraFine 5K displays available through Apple have been resolved.

The new units, which have a slightly different shielding plate than the first run of fixed units. While the vast majority of users won’t see a problem, users within about 50 feet of an active cell tower, or a civil or military radar installation are experiencing the disconnect issues.

As it turns out, most monitors can be impacted up to 35 feet from a very powerful emitter. An original LG UltraFine 5K display with the retrofitted shielding is protected to 21 feet, better than average.

The second generation of the Gamevice controller has been upgraded with new buttons and thumb sticks, and it’s great for “old school” (think Pac Man) gamers like me. 

It’s compatible with the iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPad mini, iPad Air , 9.7-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. I’m using it with my iPhone 7 Plus, though I’m tempted to get one for my 12.9-inch iPad Pro, though I suspect that would make the super-sized tablet just too unwieldy.

The Gamevice clamps around the top and bottom of your iOS device and provides buttons and analog sticks. The two halves of the controller are connected by a rubberized strap that runs the length of the back of your iPhone or iPad with the Gamevice attaching to your Apple device via a Lightning port. Bluetooth connectivity would be a nice alternative, but, alas, this isn’t an option. Once plugged in, the Gamevice is automatically recognized by your iOS.

All Android manufacturers combined totalled 56.4%, with other mobile operating systems all essentially now irrelevant.

How to group windows by application in macOS Sierra

macOS Sierra introduced system wide tabs for most (but not all) apps, allowing you to merge multiple windows into a single window or   separate merged windows. 

With two or more windows of a supported app open, go to the Windows menu and choose “Merge All Windows.” All windows of the same app will be grouped into a single window. Each file you have open will appear as a tab inside the single window.

To separate the merged windows into stand alone windows of their own, select the merged window to make it active. Go to the Windows and click the “Move Tab to New Window” option. Click it to move the selected tab to a separate window. 

This won’t separate all tabs into windows of their own, but will only separate the current tab to its own window. All remaining tabs will remain grouped into a single window unless you separate them one at a time.

Click the close button on a merged window, and it will close all tabs you have open in it.

Google Jacquard’s denim Levi’s jacket proves smart...

When Google announced plans to make smart clothing back in 2015 with Project Jacquard, I was intrigued but skeptical. I’ve worn sensor-filled clothes before, and they end up being more gimmicky than practical. But after trying on the first Jacquard product, a denim Levi’s jacket, I’m a believer.

My biggest issue with wearable technology is that devices tend to be focused more on technology than wearability. But the Jacquard jacket is a piece of tech you’ll actually want to wear. I own and wear a Levi’s jacket on the regular, and the Jacquard version—a dark wash commuter style—is just as easy to throw on as you’re walking out the door. It’s as stylish and classic as any Levi’s item, which is Americana at its finest. In other words: It doesn’t scream, “Ask me about my technology!” like a smartwatch does.

There are countless occasions on which I have to transcribe speech. It's tedious, and until voice recognition truly can handle all manner of accents and verbal tics, it's a necessary evil. Hands up, everyone who thinks I wouldn't want a machine to take care of that for me. No one? Good. Titan Note records and transcribes audio, with a particular trick up its sleeve: It can discern different speakers when it's transcribing.

It’s easy for most of us to forget that the Apple Watch actually has its own Wi-Fi radio, and can actually connect directly to just about any Wi-Fi network — provided your iPhone…

Enlarge (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

A seven-month investigation by Russia's Federal Antimonopoly Service has found that Apple's Russian arm illegally fixed prices for certain iPhone models, according to a report from the Financial Times. The FAS found that Apple told 16 retailers to "hold the prices" of these iPhones and that Apple would contact the retailers in the event that the company found their prices "inappropriate." Apple may have terminated agreements with retailers unwilling to meet those pricing guidelines.

The full report is posted in Russian here; affected phones include the iPhone 5S and 5C, the 6 and 6 Plus, and...

Rollout proposes a secure JavaScript injection...

iOS troubleshooting and update tool, Rollout.io, has published an open letter to Apple, proposing a secure JavaScript injection approval process, as a way to address Apple’s concerns from late last week regarding apps that use code-swapping frameworks like Rollout.

Here’s part of the proposal: “Just as full releases require a distribution certificate, developers will obtain a “Live Update Service Certificate” from Apple.

Just as Apple signs .ipa files, which are pushed to the App Store and then downloaded to end user devices, we propose Apple begin to sign Javascript code, which is returned to the developer, who can then push it directly to live devices. The Apple SDK would verify the signature authenticity and only execute verified code.

Earlier this month Apple began to “more uniformly” enforce a restriction in place since the debut of the Apple App...

Apple hires security expert Jonathan Zdziarski

This decision marks the conclusion of what I feel has been a matter of conscience for me over time. Privacy is sacred; our digital lives can reveal so much about us – our interests, our deepest thoughts, and even who we love. I am thrilled to be working with such an exceptional group of people who share a passion to protect that.

The Financial Times reports that Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service has ruled that Apple had illegally ordered retailers to fix prices of the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 models. The Cupertino, California-based company purportedly instructed 16 retailers in Russia to set the prices at a certain amount and if a retailer was found to be selling the iPhone at an “unsuitable” price, Apple would contact them and order them to change the price or risk having the sales agreement terminated.

In a statement (as translated by 9to5Mac) the FAS said:

The Ugreen Apple Watch charger features portability...

I’ve tried a handful of Apple Watch chargers in the past, such as Amber’s Watchcase Power Bank, but Ugreen’s offering may turn into my go-to Apple Watch charger from now on. The Ugreen Power Bank with Magnetic Charger not only features the portability that some Apple Watch owners are seeking, but it also features a built-in battery for wireless charging while away from a wall outlet.

And here’s something that you don’t always see when it comes to third-party offerings — a built-in magnetic charging puck, meaning there’s no need to provide your own charger. Not only will such a setup save you money, but it also keeps you from having to finagle with inserting or mounting Apple’s own charger. Watch our brief hands-on video walkthrough inside for a rundown of the device’s features....
