Apple sells record-shattering 13 million iPhones...

Apple expected to break records with sales of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus on launch weekend, and they were right on target: The company sold more than 13 million new iPhones in 12 countries, handily beating last year’s opening weekend record of 10 million phones sold.

“Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a Monday press announcement. “Customers’ feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can’t wait to bring iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to customers in even...

Over half of all iOS devices now running iOS 9

Since iOS 9 launched on September 16, analytics firm Mixpanel has been closely monitoring the adoption rate of the new OS by checking the version of devices running apps with Mixpanel's tracking code. Today, just 12 days after the launch of iOS 9, the new mobile operating system is running on 52.33 percent of all iOS devices.

iOS 8 is running on only 40.49 percent of iOS devices, while those devices stuck on iOS 7 or older operating systems make up just a tiny 7.18 percent. It's great to see that so many iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users feel that the new OS is stable and that the upgrade process is so painless. You can keep an eye on the adoption rate numbers yourself at this web page. 

If you're one of the 40.49 percent, why haven't you switched to iOS 9? Let us know in the comments.

Apple announced today that the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus have sold a total of 13 million units in their first weekend, continuing the company's tradition of outdoing the previous year's sales every time it introduces a new iPhone model.

There are a few factors that contribute to the increased sales. First, Apple had another week to rack up online preorders ahead of the iPhone's first weekend in stores—the phones usually launch about a week after preorders begin, but this year there were two weeks between the start of...

Kakaku: Mac OS X market share in Japan declines year...

Approximately 97.9% of the total population in Japan now owns at least one personal computer, according to a survey by Kakaku, which provides price, products and other information of merchandise and services including PCs, home electronics, broadband and mobile phone telecommunication fees, food, drink, interiors and cosmetics. That's up 1.8 percentage points year-over-year.

Windows 7 was the most popular operating system with 46.3 percent market share. Windows 10 had 15.3% percent, while Mac OS X had 7.4%, according to Kakaku (as noted by, a global investment newswire). That's down from 11.26 percent in 2014 (based on data from If Kakaku's survey is accurate, Japan seems to be the exception to the rule. Overall, Macs have gained global market share for 33 out of the last 34 quarters.

Every two years, Apple redesigns the iPhone. And in between each new design is an "S" model, one that looks basically the same as the previous version but overhauls the insides to keep things fresh. 2015 is an S year.

New designs typically generate the bigger buzz since it's easier to convince people that something is worth an upgrade when it looks and feels new. But to its credit, Apple is careful to make these less-buzzworthy S refreshes about more than just adding speed or bumping up the camera. The iPhone 4S added Siri. The iPhone 5S brought TouchID and 64-bit support. And the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are mostly about the pressure-sensitive screen, dubbed “3D Touch.”

Still, the right iPhone upgrade interval for most...

Two Risky Strategies Could Threaten Apple's...

One of the ironies of my technical career is that when I first went to work for a tech company, I specifically wanted to work for a firm that was breaking the mold -- not representative of it. So, in my initial interview, I was concerned that IBM was going to buy the firm because it was the mold at that time. I was promised it wasn't, and that there was a contract that said it couldn't. Then, six months later, it did. IBM nearly failed six years after that, largely due to two strategies Apple now has embraced.

A new report from The Wall Street Times says the Apple Car will drive out in 2019, but won't be driverless as some have predicted (though it will be all electric). 

Let's assume the WSJ is right. This will be version 1.0 of the Apple Car. But what might version 2.0 be like? Version 3.0? Version 20? At some point the Apple Car may not only lack a driver behind the wheel, but also come without a steering wheel, gas or break pedals, a horn and review mirrors.

In 2014 IEEE, a technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, unveiled the findings of a survey that revealed expert opinions about the future of driverless cars, such as speed bumps to mass adoption, essential autonomous technologies, features in the car of the future, and geographic adoption. More than 200 researchers, academicians, practitioners, university students,...

How to use Time Travel in watchOS 2

WatchOS 2, the upgrade of the operating system for the Apple Watch, adds a Time Travel feature. Nope, no Back to the Future or Looper possibilities here. But you can scroll with the Digital Crown to explore events in the future (and past).

Like what, you ask? You can check on upcoming meetings or activities. You can look at info from third-party apps, such as upcoming flight information. You can check what the weather will be a few hours from now. And more.

To use Time Travel,  you'll need to use one of the watchOS 2 watch faces that support the feature. They include Chronograph, Solar, Color, Astronomy, Simple, Modular, Utility, and even Mickey Mouse.

If you have one of those watch faces enabled, you just twist the Digital Crown forward or backward to move that direction in time. Your watch face will change the time and show a little blue status icon that says Time...

How to watch the ‘blood moon’ total lunar eclipse...


Tonight — Sunday, Sept. 27 — you can see the first “supermoon” total lunar eclipse in 30 years. The moon will turn red, which is normal for a lunar eclipse, but this rare event will be bigger and brighter than those of the past few decades. That’s because the eclipse will coincide with a supermoon — a “very rare” alignment that won’t happen again until 2033.

Check this map to see if you live where the eclipse will be visible. If you don’t live in a visible region, or a big city with too many tall obstructions or a lot of light pollution, bookmark this page.

We won’t see the full effect here on the West Coast but if you’re lucky enough to be able to get outside and see it clearly, don’t miss it. Otherwise, like so many other things nowadays, you can watch online.

The latest Pebble looks a touch different from previous models of the smartwatch. Instead of a square screen with rounded edges, it bears a circular watch face. The Pebble Time Round also is thinner and lighter than its siblings, but it's not as water-resistant. More importantly, the battery doesn't last as long -- a couple of days rather than a week. That earns it a black mark, as long battery life is critical for an effective smartwatch. That said, to my eye, it's classier than Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel and most other smartwatches.

Why the iPad won’t replace the MacBook as my main...

With all the productivity features that iOS 9 brings, I decided it was time to trade up my long-in-the-tooth iPad mini 2 for an iPad Air 2 and see how the other half’s been living. So far, I’ve been impressed by the capabilities of the Air 2: Its speed, its slim and light form factor, and its gorgeous large screen. 

Honestly, the more impressive the iPad gets, the closer it approaches, well, the MacBook. But despite all of that, and even with the immense productivity enhancements made in iOS 9, I found myself thinking that I’m not about to give up my laptop anytime soon. 

Keep on truckin’ 

It wasn’t so long ago that I found myself nodding in agreement as Steve Jobs declared that some day soon tablets would be the “cars” to traditional computers’ “trucks.” That most people could get by on a tablet for the things they needed to do every day: Check their email, surf the web, watch movies, and run the occasional app.

Bugs addressed in the update, iOS 9.0.1, include a system freeze on the slide to update screen, alarms and timers that would fail to go off, and frame distortion in paused videos. One bug Apple didn't address in the first update to iOS allows an intruder to bypass a device's lockscreen and access photos and contacts on it. Still, compared to some past versions of iOS, the latest version appears quite stable.

iOS 9 “App Skinning” feature delayed, iCloud backup...

Well, this is sort of a kick in the pants.

One of iOS 9’s major new features, App Thinning (or “app slicing”), has been delayed due to an issue with iOS 9. App Thinning was announced at WWDC as a way to help trim down the size of large applications by letting developers mark assets for each specific type of device. When users download the app, the App Store will determine which device they have and only require them to download the assets necessary to run on their device.

Although App Thinning has been examined in TestFlight for the past few weeks, Apple has said that App Thinning will not appear until the company resolves an issue in the way iCloud handles backups....

Apple announced during the iPhone 6s keynote earlier this month that the phone would include a second-generation Touch ID system that was much faster than its predecessor. Now that iPhone buyers are starting to get their handsets delivered, it’s possible to test just how much faster. In the video below from iFixYouri, you can see […]

The Week in iOS Apps: It's complicated

It's complicated

Apple Watches are full of complications—in the best sense of the word. Really. We’ll show you two apps featuring new complications, plus more from the iOS world. Read on!

Carrot Weather

Here’s a word you’ll get used to in the age of the Apple Watch—“complications,” used to describe small elements that appear on the watch face and offer quick access to frequently used data. The $4 Carrot Weather app is one of those “funny” weather apps, providing a snarky quip with its forecasts. The newest update adds complications for the Apple Watch—it can now show you current weather and forecasts the next few hours—as well as new 3D Touch quick actions supported in iOS 9 on the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus.

SoundShare: The missing piece of Apple Music

Kirk McElhearn, writing for Macworld:

A friend recently showed me an iOS app called SoundShare. This free app lets you play music and, if you want, share it with your friends. You can follow people, as you would on Facebook or Twitter, and see what they’ve listened to, while sharing what you’ve heard.

I’ve been beta testing SoundShare for a while now and, I have to say, it is a brilliant complement to Apple Music and my go-to app for new music discovery.

Give it a try. It’s free and, in my opinion, well worth your time.

Oh Samsung

Walk along the bedraggled queue of people, and pillows and discarded bottles of water bore the same bright blue color and were emblazoned with the hashtag #NextIsNew.

“They were given to us by Apple,” a person in queue told International Business Times. A friend of his, however, was a little more savvy, quietly informing him: “No man, it was Samsung, I did a little research.”

What the fuck is wrong with this company? Instead of these types of stunts, why not try to build a better product—that philosophy is the one thing they haven’t copied from Apple.

China's black market prices for new iPhones...

Extra charges for the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus on China's black market are a lot lower than last year when the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were released thanks to Apple's efforts to increase stock and shorten shipping time, the Chinese language news portal, DoNews reports.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus online orders began in China, including Hong Kong, this morning. Demand for rose gold models has been soaring because buyers said it's the only color that distinguishes the new iPhone from its predecessor, says DoNews (as noted by, a global investment newswire).

Earlier today, black market prices for rose gold iPhone 6s handsets were CNY 6,000 (about US$941) for the 16G version and CNY 8,200 for the 128G model. Black market prices for the iPhone 6s Plus were CNY 9,000 for a 64G smartphone and CNY 11,000 ($1,726) for a 128G version.

Due to a greater supply through Apple's own channel and carriers than in...

FoneFox tests iPhone 6s Plus bendiness, comes up...

The good news is we might not have to deal with “BendGate 2.0” where the iPhone 6s is concerned.

Following last year’s controversy, Apple strengthened the weak points of its iPhone 6s handsets and added a new, stronger 7000 series aluminum to the device.

It seems to have helped.

The YouTube channel FoneFox put the iPhone 6s Plus through its bend-related paces to see what improvements had been made.

In the video, the phone is given the same bend test it was given a year ago. FoneFox’s Christian simply wraps his hands around the device and attempts to bend it in the middle. While the phone starts to bend under more and more...

It was a good iPhone launch this year over in Berkeley, California and albeit the overnight camp out numbers for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus apparently weren’t as high as last year’s, the event still drew an enthusiastic crowd that spent both the previous afternoon and the night before.

This year proved different, as I decided to finally spend the full night as opposed to waking up abysmally early the morning of the launch and seeing where this put me. Having picked up a $20 foam sleep pad from REI, I chucked this, my camera, my sleeping bag and two pillows into the car and drove off to the Apple Store.

Upon arriving, I hunkered down with several other people who were...

Apple Watch apps won’t install? Here are some...

While WatchOS 2 is a fine leap forward for the Apple Watch , like many software updates, it can cause problems for some users.

I’ve experienced this first-hand with my Apple Watch, which was unable to install certain native apps after upgrading to watchOS 2. These apps would begin to install, even showing an icon on the Watch’s home screen, but would then get stuck halfway through the process and eventually disappear.

The good news is that the problem is fixable, but it may take some time and effort. In my case, only a full reset of both the Apple Watch and my iPhone 6 Plus did the trick.

How hackers can access iPhone contacts and photos...

iPhone users have yet another screenlock bypass vulnerability to watch out for, according to a new video demonstration that shows how the bug can be exploited to gain unauthorized access to photos and contacts.

The hack reportedly works on iOS version 9.0.1, which Apple released Wednesday, although some people say they are unable to reproduce it. The vulnerability makes it possible for someone who gets even a brief moment with an iPhone to rifle through contacts and photos without entering the password. Here it is in action.

Beware! iOS 9 & iOS 9.0.1 - Security Flaw - Passcode Bypass. Turn Off Siri on Lockscreen to be Safe.

It works by entering an incorrect password four times. Then, immediately after the incorrect password is entered for the fifth time, the attacker holds down the...

iPhone 6s teardown reveals a smaller battery and...

The industrious tinkerers at iFixit got their hands on an iPhone 6s and 6s Plus and immediately tore the things apart to figure out what makes them tick.

The teardown confirmed much of what we had already deduced: The 6s has a smaller battery, 2GB of RAM, and—thanks to the technology behind 3D Touch—a heavier display. But it’s cool to get a peek inside the phone and see exactly how which pieces Apple picked to make it work (and there sure are a lot of pieces).

Ryot in Haiti: Shot in 4K entirely on the iPhone 6s...


The film tells the story of one citizen from Jalouzi, one of the largest slums in Haiti, who is determined to bring color to the impoverished area by helping paint the entire town, literally.

Believing that color has the power to transform his community, he’s helping to paint everywhere – on houses, on buses, and the entire hillside. Armed with brushes of bright blues, pastel pinks, and sunshine yellows, he’s helping to mobilize citizens of all ages, determined to turn the grey town into a rainbow full of color to lead the way to a brighter Haiti.

I don’t care much that it was shot on any particular device. But it is a wonderful film full of hope for the future of one of the most impoverished places in the world.

Enlarge / The iPhone 6S, blown apart. (credit: iFixit)

Part of the fun of any new gadget is the painstakingly detailed iFixit teardowns, which often tell us things about the devices we couldn't otherwise find out. The new teardowns of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are no exception.

The first point of interest for iPhone watchers is that battery capacity is definitely down a bit, presumably to make space for the new Taptic Engine (the engine measures 35 x 6 x 3.2mm in the 6S and 15 x 8 x 4.9mm in the 6 Plus). Capacity goes from 1810mAh to 1715mAh in the...

iPhone 6s, 6s Plus sales off to a great start

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are now on sale, and all evidence points toward another home run for Apple. Lines are forming as folks wait to get their hands on the latest Apple smartphones. And IHS Technology forecasts a 22% jump in the number of iPhone shipments in 2015 compared to 2014. 

The research group says sales of the iPhone 6S should do better than past iPhone initial sales because of wider country availability early, especially China. IHS forecasts Apple will ship 236 million iPhones this year.

"The biggest innovations that Apple has done have typically been on the S series. On the surface the product looks the same, but under the bonnet it’s totally different," says IHS. "The key differentiator this year is the 3D Touch, which is strongly differentiated from every other smartphone maker's phones...

iFixIt tears down the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus go on sale today and iFixIt has torn 'em down to see what makes 'em tick. iFixIt says that getting into the new iPhones is almost as easy as it was before "thanks to some surprise adhesive lurking beneath the display."

Once inside, though, things are quite different. Apple’s new Taptic Engine compresses the battery slightly, the display is a big bigger in order to accommodate additional capacitive sensors, while the A9 got a size bump (roughly 14.5 x 15 mm, up from 13.5 x 14.5 mm on the A8) from last year’s A8. 

"Our guess at the cause of growth? The addition of the embedded M9 motion coprocessor," says iFixIt. "One thing that didn’t change: repairability. With an easily accessible display, straightforward access to main components, and standard amounts of adhesive, the iPhone 6s [and the 6s Plus] maintained a robust repairability score of 7/10...

Hey, Apple, let us apply a movie's rental movie...

I sometimes rent a movie on iTunes, then, as a movie buff, decide it was so good I want to purchase it. However, then I'm made that I paid the rental fee.

So I have a suggestion for Apple: if I rent a movie and really like it, let me apply the rental price to a purchase of the movie. Yes, I know that no other digital movie store does this, but then Apple is a leader, not a follower.

Hey, you can download demo versions of software before you pay for them. Perhaps Apple should adopt a similar theme for movies on the iTunes Store in which rentals are the "demo."

For example, let's say I rent the film, Mad Max: Fury Road and enjoy it enough that I'd like to purchase it. Why not allow me to apply the $4.99 rental fee to the price of buying the film (which lists for $19.99 for the HD version)? This would be be a win-win-win for Apple, movie studios, and film fans.

LibreOffice 5.0 Is the Office Suite Champ

LibreOffice 5.0, The Document Foundation's latest open source office suite, deserves to top the list of contenders for best performance in this category. The Document Foundation last month released LibreOffice 5.0 for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. It is the 10th major release since the launch of the project, and the first in the third development cycle. The release coincides with the rollout of Windows 10 and positions the LibreOffice suite head to head with Microsoft Office. This is an important milestone for LibreOffice.
