Key iPhone Source Code Gets Posted On GitHub

Jason Koebler shares a report from Motherboard: An anonymous person posted what experts say is the source code for a core component of the iPhone's operating system on GitHub, which could pave the way for hackers and security researchers to find vulnerabilities in iOS and make iPhone jailbreaks easier to achieve. The code is for "iBoot," which is the part of iOS that is responsible for ensuring a trusted boot of the operating system. It's the program that loads iOS, the very first process that runs when you turn on your iPhone. The code says it's for iOS 9, an older version of the operating system, but portions of it are likely to still be used in iOS 11. Bugs in the boot process are the most valuable ones if reported to Apple through its bounty program, which values them at a max payment of $200,000. "This is the biggest leak in history," Jonathan Levin, the author of a series of books on iOS and Mac OSX internals, told Motherboard in an online chat. "It's a huge deal." Levin,...

Showrunner on Apple’s ‘Amazing Stories’ reboot...

It hasn’t started production yet, but Apple has lost the planned show runner on its upcoming Amazing Stories reboot. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the tech giant wants a family friendly show but potential helmer Bryan Fuller wanted to do a Black Mirror-type show. In other words, a more R-rated show.

Fuller is a television writer and producer who has created a number of television series, including Pushing Daisies, Hannibal, and American Gods. He’s also worked on various Star Trek TV series and is the co-creator of Star Trek: Discovery.

Created by Steven Spielberg, Amazing Stories was a fantasy, horror, and science fiction television anthology series featuring an all-star roster of guest stars that originally ran on NBC from 1985 to 1987. The series...

hackingbear writes: Chinese ecommerce giant Alibaba has announced that its mobile wallet app Alipay is to be accepted in physical Apple Stores in the country. This would be the first time Apple has allowed retail store purchases to be made with a third-party mobile wallet app amid a push by the iPhone maker to revive growth in the world's No.2 economy. Apple has had to work hard to promote Apple Pay in China due to the popularity of existing, local mobile wallet apps like WeChat Pat and Alipay. The company had already bowed to the inevitable in allowing local apps to be used for online payments. Other American brands like McDonald's and Starbucks have already started accepting Alipay and WeChat Pay in China for sometimes.

Apple’s HomePod, which will be released Feb. 9, has faced some criticism because it only works with Apple Music, Apple’s own music streaming service. However, you can use another iOS device's AirPlay feature to stream music from services other than Apple Music.

As noted by Business Insider, you can stream Spotify, Amazon Prime, Tidal, etc., to an HomePod from an iPhone or iPad. Here’s how:

  • Make sure your iPhone's Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections are switched on, and both the iPhone and HomePod are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Swipe up from the home screen of your iPhone (or down from the top-right corner on the iPhone X).
  • Locate the tile containing music playback controls.

Councillors unanimously backed a motion by Greens Councillor Rohan Leppert to lobby the government for a new design for the store and public consultation. However, the council doesn’t have the power to actually block the development from going ahead, according to ABC News.

As HomePod launches, Spotify cuts off support for...

Chris Welch, The Verge:

Spotify is removing itself from a number of home audio speakers and receivers from the likes of Onkyo, Denon, Marantz, Bang & Olufsen, Pioneer, and Yamaha. Some devices are losing Spotify integration completely, while others will require firmware updates if users want to continue receiving built-in access to their music. The products in question were once all able to independently play Spotify over the internet — no smartphone required.

And:

[Spotify] announced this change was coming months and months ago. But at that time, things were still working as normal for users who would ultimately be impacted by the move. Over the last few weeks, the cutoff has actually occurred, and Spotify is getting a slew of complaints in its support forums about the lost functionality.

Apple’s emoji crackdown

Jeremy Burge, Emojipedia:

WhatsApp used Apple emojis on Android for years, and only recently created its own emoji set for use on Android and the web. Slack, too, offered Apple emojis on all platforms until today.

Whether these changes were due to pressure from Apple, or a growing realisation that this might not be the right way to go about cross-platform use, we don’t know for sure.

Other apps such as Signal and Telegram continue to use Apple emojis on Android.

That’s Android. How about using Apple emoji in your iOS app?

Last week app developer Sam Eckert reported that an update to his iOS app BitTracker was rejected by Apple due to lack of compliance with its guidelines for trademarks and copyrights.

Specifically, emoji use in BitTracker was called out as being problematic in both the iPhone app, and a small Chart Decreasing emoji used in the watchOS app was also an issue.

Up until this week, the most used version of Android was Marshmallow, which shipped in October of 2015. That has now changed.

As you can see in this official Android pie chart, Android Nougat (which shipped in August 2016) has just squeaked by, with an adoption rate of 28.5% (as opposed to Marshmallow’s 28.1%).

Here’s the current (as of January 18th) iOS adoption picture:

iOS 11, which shipped this past September, is used on 65% of devices. Fragmentation is still a big issue for Android. If nothing else, those old versions of Android carry the malware susceptibilities that, presumably, have been patched in the most recent version of Android, called Oreo.

Apple’s patent enables a user device such as an iPhone or iPad to establish a secure, high-bandwidth wireless connection with a vehicle accessory system (CarPlay) to enable the user device to wirelessly stream user interface (UI) information to the vehicle accessory system. To implement this technique, a lower-bandwidth wireless technology (e.g., Bluetooth) is used as an initial means for establishing a Wi-Fi pairing between the user device and the vehicle accessory system. 

Wi-Fi parameters associated with a Wi-Fi network provided by the vehicle accessory system...

Apple customers could get cheaper financing through...

Apple is reportedly in talks with investment bank Goldman Sachs to offer new financing to consumers buying iPhones, watches and other devices. For some customers, this could offer them a better deal than they can get today.

Few details are revealed, so it’s not known whether this would supplement or replace either of Apple’s existing financing schemes, which offer interest rates ranging from 0% to 28.24% …

How to use Siri to get directions on your iPhone,...

It’s easy to use Siri, Apple’s “personal digital assistant,” on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch to get directions. Here’s how on your iOS device:

  • Hold down the Home button to activate Siri (or say “Hey, Siri” if your iOS device supports this feature).
  • Tell Siri the place you want directions to. For example. “Where is Barnes & Noble?”
  • Siri will show you the location on a map. If there are multiple locations, you can tap the one you want.
  • The location will be shown to you on a map.
  • Siri will then present you with directions from your current location to your destination.
  • Tap Start and you’re good to go.

Here’s how on the Apple Watch:

  • Open the Maps app by pressing the Digital Crown to access the home screen, and then tapping on the Maps icon. 
  • To search for a new location, tap Search (to look for a specific named location) or Nearby (to browse categories of nearby locations, such as...

Notable apps and app updates for Feb. 7, 2018

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

BBC Worldwide and games publisher and developer Kalypso Media, have collaborated to produce The Official BBC Earth Quiz. It’s a “natural history-themed mobile quiz game” that features content from the hit series Blue Planet II, as well as other award-winning BBC natural history documentaries.

iOS 11.3 beta 2 released, sports battery monitoring/...

iOS 11.3 has entered its second developer beta and it appears that the new version of the operating system will add battery health information and management feature to iOS 11.3 in response to customer complaints about the way the company fixed an issue where iPhones with degrading batteries were experiencing unexpected device crashes. The crashes were caused by the processor trying to draw more power than the battery could provide, so Apple spread those intensive tasks over multiple processor cycles. The end result was slower iPhones, which many people interpreted as Apple intentionally hobbling performance to force new phone purchases.

To see the new battery information in iOS 11.3 go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health. This is where you’ll see your iPhone battery’s maximum capacity (100% when your battery is new). As your battery ages and loses the ability to hold the same charge it did when new you’ll see the percentage drop. That’s showing how much your...

Apple may be considering full rebates for full-...

Apple may be looking to offer rebates to customers who purchased a full-cost replacement iPhone battery only to get around throttled performance.

One of the questions submitted in January by Senator John Thune, chairman of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee, was whether Apple was exploring the possibility of rebates. Apple’s response was released on Tuesday.

“Yes, we are exploring this and will update you accordingly,” stated Cynthia Hogan, Apple’s VP for public policy in the Americas.

As of now, the current policy for AppleCare iPhone support is for Apple to offer a $29 replacement battery, complete with repair, for any battery installed since December 1st. This price is only available for customers who specifically request the replacement battery for qualifying iPhone models.

In late December Apple relented to public pressure after its admission that it was slowing down iPhones with weak batteries. The company has reduced out-of-warranty battery...

HomePod

I’ve been testing Apple’s new HomePod for the last week or so, and this is the first product review I’ve written that could be accurately summarized in the length of a tweet, and an old-school 140-character tweet at that: HomePod does exactly what Apple says it does, doesn’t do anything more than what Apple says it does, and costs $349. There.

To wit, Apple says HomePod:

  • Has great audio quality.
  • Is easy to set up.
  • Makes it easy to play audio content from Apple (Apple Music, iTunes Store, iCloud Music Library, podcasts from iTunes’s directory).
  • Has primary interaction via Siri. You just talk to HomePod.
  • Allows secondary interaction using HomePod as an AirPlay speaker.

All of this is true.

Apple’s product names are sometimes inscrutable, but other times are perfectly sensible. AirPods and HomePod are such a case. The two products are very much siblings:...

What Apple's Battery Health 'Fix'...

Apple has released new battery health features in iOS 11.3 beta 2, which was seeded to developers today. BGR reports what those battery health functions look like, and how to disable power management if you're using an older iPhone: The feature is contained within a new "Battery Health" menu, which is under the "Battery" tab on iOS 11.3. The page only really has two fields: Maximum Capacity, which shows what percentage of the original charge your battery can still hold; and Peak Performance Capacity, which tells you if your phone's performance is being throttled due to the battery. Right now, there are no options to change anything within the menu. Maximum Capacity should be at 100% for newer phones, and it should fall down to around 80% over the course of about two years of normal use. A Redditor on the iOSBeta forum uploaded a photo of his iPhone 7, which is sitting at 87% capacity. That device still shows peak performance.

On older devices with a worse battery, the phone...

Apple Homepod Review: Locked In

On Tuesday, the review embargo lifted for full reviews of Apple's new HomePod smart speaker. The Verge's Niley Patel shared his thoughts on Apple's new HomePod in video and written form. Patel found that while it offers best-in-class sound for the price, Siri is frustratingly limited and the voice controls only work with Apple Music. Furthermore, Siri can't tell different voices apart, therefore raising some privacy concerns as anyone can come up to the speaker and ask Siri to send and read text messages and other private information aloud. Here's an excerpt from the report: The HomePod, whether Apple likes it or not, is the company's answer to the wildly popular Amazon Echo and Google Home smart speakers. Apple is very insistent that the $349 HomePod has been in development for the past six years and that it's entirely focused on sound quality, but it's entering a market where Amazon is advertising Alexa as a lovable and well-known character during the Super Bowl instead of...

When you need external storage for your PC, you might as well go big: Best Buy has dropped the price of WD's 8TB easystore drive to $160.

The last time we saw this deal was early January, and as we acknowledged last time, this drive was cheaper in November during the Black Friday madness. However, this is still a good price. A similar drive sells for $20 more on Amazon right now.

WD's easystore drive features a promised data transfer rate of 5Gbps over USB 3.0, and comes with WD Backup software if you need help figuring out how to backup your PC's files. Otherwise you can use your favorite backup utility such as Windows 10's File History. This drive also has a two-year warranty.
