Chipworks: Both Samsung and TSMC are making the A9...

The only thing that most people will need to know about Apple's A9 is that it's a whole lot faster than last year's A8. But for those of you who are more interested in chip design, Chipworks has unearthed an interesting tidbit: there are two different versions of the A9 chip, one manufactured by Samsung and another by Taiwan Semiconductor (TSMC). Most interestingly, Samsung's version (the APL0898) has a...

One of the biggest complaints from users of Apple’s new streaming music service is that the user interface is often confusing and hard to navigate. The radio service, promoted as a standout feature of Apple Music, hardly gets front billing in the app, and non-techy users are often perplexed about where Apple Music and the […]

According to Chipworks, there are actually two different sized A9 processors floating around in the iPhone 6s and 6s plus released last week. That’s not really a surprise because Apple likes to have redundancy, especially when one of the manufacturers is Samsung. We’d heard that both Samsung and TSMC would be producing A9 processors destined […]

Los Angeles schools reach $6.4 million settlement...

(credit: Brad Flickinger)

Last week, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) reached a settlement with Apple and Lenovo over a conflict involving software from curriculum provider Pearson. Although the conflict involves Pearson and LAUSD primarily, the curriculum provider was a subcontractor under Apple and Lenovo, so the settlement is between the hardware companies and LAUSD, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Apple has agreed to pay LAUSD $4.2 million for the Pearson curriculum, and Lenovo, which also charged the school district for Pearson curriculum, will give the school district...

Spectral evidence for hydrated salts in recurring...

Nature Geoscience:

Determining whether liquid water exists on the Martian surface is central to understanding the hydrologic cycle and potential for extant life on Mars. Recurring slope lineae, narrow streaks of low reflectance compared to the surrounding terrain, appear and grow incrementally in the downslope direction during warm seasons.

Our findings strongly support the hypothesis that recurring slope lineae form as a result of contemporary water activity on Mars.

I link directly to the research study because I love the language they use. Bottom line? There is not only water on Mars (we knew that already. It’s in the form of ice) but that it actually flows – “liquid water” – in Mars’ summer months.

iPhone 6s's A9 Processor Racks Up Impressive...

MojoKid writes: Underneath the hood of Apple's new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models is a new custom designed System-on-Chip (SoC) that Apple has dubbed its A9 processor. It's a 64-bit chip that, according to Apple, is the most advanced ever built for any smartphone, and that's just one of many claims coming out of Cupertino. Apple is also claiming a level of gaming performance on par with dedicated game consoles and with a graphics engine that's 90 percent faster than the previous generation. For compute chores, Apple says the A9 chip improves overall CPU performance by up to 70 percent. These performance promises come without divulging too much about the physical makeup of the A9, though in testing its dual-core SoC does seem to compete well with the likes of Samsung's octal-core Exynos chips found in the Galaxy S6 line. Further, in intial graphics benchmark testing, the A9 also leads the pack in mosts tests, sometimes by a healthy margin, even besting Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810...

The iPhone 6s Plus isn't just a great phone, it...

I received my iPhone 6s Plus (128GB and space grey) Friday morning. Though it looks identical to its predecessor (the iPhone 6 Plus), it's a solid upgrade. Following are my first impressions.

My main reasons for upgrading were the camera improvements. These days iPhone is my still camera and digital recorder as well as my mobile phone. The iPhone 6s Plus excels at both of these functions more than any previous Apple smartphone. In fact, I had someone ask me what DSLR camera I had used to take some family photos. He was shocked when I told him I had used my iPhone. 

The latest Apple smartphones sport a 12-megapixel sensor with advanced pixel technology (called Focux Pixels) and an Apple-designed image signal processor. Do most of us really need that many megapixels for our photos? Probably not.  

For most folks, the highest resolution files needed will be for the occasional print or photo book. In...

These pictures of you

M.G. Siegler:

Anyone who thinks Apple’s new ‘Live Photos’ element of the iPhone 6s (and 6s Plus) is a gimmick is a fool that doesn’t understand Apple — and may not understand human nature and emotions. I actually think this is one of the more brilliant features Apple has released in a while.

It’s no accident that people with children immediately realize the value in this feature.

I haven’t seen Live Photos in action but it’s been interesting talking to people who have. No one has dismissed it as “just a gimmick” and those with young children echo Siegler – they think it is a brilliant idea.

GoPro HERO+: a wallet-friendly $200 action camera...


GoPro just further expanded its action camera lineup after announcing the HERO+ LCD back in June. The new HERO+ is an even more affordable camera that drops the LCD screen while retaining 1080p60 recording and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The HERO+ can also capture 720p60 video, 8-megapixel photos, time-lapses, and burst mode photos. Other features and specs of the camera include an durable (integrated) housing that’s waterproof down to 131 feet (40m), Bluetooth connectivity, GoPro’s new built-in trimming and sharing, QuikCapture (powering up and starting video recording with one button), and HiLight Tag for selecting key moments while filming.

If you’re looking for a very good and very inexpensive action camera, GoPro is your best bet. This would be a great Christmas gift for a kid who was into BMX or other high motion activities. I’ve been thinking of getting one for my motorcycle until I realized, the video wouldn’t really be all that exciting.

The ultimate iPhone camera comparison: How does the...

Lisa Bettany:

In the past eight years, each new advancement in iPhone camera technology has made dramatic improvements to image quality. The new 12-megapixel iPhone 6s iSight camera is no exception. With 50% more megapixels than the last four iPhone 8-megapixel models, the iPhone 6s boasts a number of key improvements including: improved auto-focus, local tone-mapping, noise reduction, and colour separation, with that fancy “deep trench isolation” technology Apple is raving about.

In this follow-up post to my previous iPhone comparisons, I present a 9 iPhone comparison from all iPhone versions taken with Camera+ including: the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and the new iPhone 6s, in a variety of real-life situations to test each iPhone camera’s capabilities.

The results are predictable (after all, it’s expected the camera would get better with each generation) but seeing them on the page is very...

Recently, Apple posted full instructions as to how to activate and deactivate Private Browsing in iOS 9.

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...

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

STM is a relatively well-known Australian company that makes great quality, but slightly pricey bags and cases for your gadgets.

They just look like regular bags, except they’re not. Nowhere is that […]

But it turns out that there’s a hidden 3D Touch setting that’s disabled by default […]

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.

Lockscreen Bug Fix Conspicuously Absent in iOS 9...

Apple has released the first update to its new iOS 9 operating system to clean up some bugs in the original version of the software. 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....

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.
