No, Apple isn't buying rival streaming service...

Tidal may have landed some high-profile exclusives, like the streaming rights to Beyoncé’s Lemonade and Prince’s entire back catalog, but that doesn’t mean Apple has any interest in buying Jay-Z’s streaming service.

“We’re not looking to acquire any streaming services,” Apple Music leader Jimmy Iovine told BuzzFeed, shooting down a rumor from earlier this summer that Apple was having early talks with Tidal execs to explore the possibility.

Notable apps and app updates for Sept. 15, 2016

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

Tomoyoshi Matsui has introduced Everlisten++ 1.0. It’s a free music listening app that allows you to listen to the main portion of a song track, one after another. This app plays a song from the start position and plays it for a set playback duration. What’s more, you can control the playback speed and its pitch.

T-Mobile To iPhone Users: Do Not Download iOS 10 For...

If you have an iPhone, and you're on T-Mobile network, do not install iOS 10 for now. The U.S. carrier warned on Thursday that the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and the iPhone 5SE users who downloaded Apple's newest iOS software were facing connectivity issues. Apple is working on a fix, and T-Mobile expects to resolve things within 48 hours. ZDNet adds: You can power-cycle your iPhone by holding in the power and home button at the same time until you see an Apple logo displayed on the screen. Apple's release of iOS 10 hasn't been perfect. During its first hour of availability on Tuesday, iOS users reported issues with the update stalling just as it finished. Those impacted by the issue were required to use iTunes on a computer to reinstall the update. Despite a rough start, iOS 10 adoption was at nearly 15 percent after just 24 hours, and is currently at 21 perfect nearly two days after availability according to Mixpanel.

It's now cheaper to fix your cracked iPhone...

Are you debating whether to buy a new iPhone 7 or fix a cracked screen on your current device? Well, if you have AppleCare+, you may not have to choose.

This week, Apple announced that AppleCare+ customers will only have to pay $29 to fix their cracked iPhone screens at an Apple Store. Previously, these customers had to pay $79 for screen repairs, or $99 to fix a larger Plus-sized screen. This lowered price also applies to customers who have purchased AppleCare+ in the past as long as they have an iPhone 6 or beyond.

AppleCare+ costs $129. This insurance plan extends the typical iPhone warranty to two years, and it covers up to two repairs within that time frame. Customers without AppleCare+ and whose iPhone are out-of-warranty can expect to pay $129 to fix an iPhone screen or $149 to fix a Plus-sized screen.

Review: Twelve South HiRise 2 for iPhone + iPad

HiRise 2 ($60) is the latest version of Twelve South's Lightning dock, which we've seen in its original incarnation, HiRise for iPhone, and its upgraded sequel, HiRise Deluxe. Twelve South has reduced the overall footprint of the dock this time around, while increasing the weight to give HiRise 2 a sturdier presence. As before, HiRise 2 comes with different clips to adjust the position of a device based on which case is being used. HiRise 2 also comes with a Lightning cable and micro-USB cable, for those who use battery cases. Twelve South's newest dock comes in white, silver, or black — the latter is pictured here.{/exp:char_limit}

T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray posted on Twitter that Apple is "working to fix an iOS 10 problem" within the next 48 hours. Until then, T-Mobile customers with an iPhone SE, 6, or 6 Plus are warned not to upgrade to iOS 10.

Watch tonight’s NFL game on Apple TV, via Twitter

17 Orbits:

Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the Buffalo Bills hosting the New York Jets at 8:25 Eastern time. For the first time you can watch an NFL game on Twitter via Apple TV (4th gen) or other set top box.

And:

Just yesterday the Twitter app became available for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and xBox. The app does not require an account and therefore no log in is necessary. It allows one to view the original CBS broadcast of the game alongside curated Tweets – but you cannot Tweet, Like, Follow or view your own timeline. Its like a “second-screen experience” without the second screen.

iOS 10 Is Surfacing Hardcore Porn GIFs in iMessage

Apple has found itself in hot water once again. The company's revamped iMessage -- and the inclusion of a range of extensions -- isn't rendering the best of results. Hours after the release of iOS 10 -- which caused issues for some users -- news outlets noticed a "highly sexual" My Little Pony GIF was appearing in searches when curious minds searched for the word "butt". But that wasn't the end of it. The Verge explains the horror: A woman who emailed The Verge this afternoon says her eight-year-old daughter, while trying to send a message to her dad, was presented with "a very explicit image" of "a woman giving oral sex to a well endowed male." Her daughter hadn't searched for anything explicit, just the word "huge." I see the image come up like, holy shit, whoa whoa whoa, that's a hardcore porn image," Tassie Bethany, whose daughter discovered the image, tells The Verge by phone. "I grabbed the phone from her immediately. She typed in the word 'huge,' which isn't sexual in any...

iPhone 7 Draws Tepid Notices


The iPhone 7 may be the best version of Apple's smartphone to date, but it's garnering lukewarm reactions from reviewers and pundits. The practical improvements in the new iPhone are praiseworthy, but they come at a cost. "Waterproofing and better battery life have been common iPhone feature requests for years, and the camera and speed improvements are nothing to sneeze at," wrote reviewer Andrew Cunningham, "but you'll need to buy into Apple's vision of the future if you want to get them." That vision includes a world without buttons or wires.

This week, Susie returns from her hiatus writing about the Apple event, in order to discuss, duh—the Apple event. iOS 10 is out, and our review is live. We're eagerly awaiting our chance to review the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and glad we didn't try to order them through the iPhone Upgrade Program, which temporarily put loyal customers willing to buy an iPhone every year at the back of the line.

Apple has issued a statement citing that the iPhone 7 Plus, especially in its jet black color, would be in short supply for walk-in customers without a reservation.

The statement also indicates that Apple’s jet black iPhones and all iPhone 7 plus models in all colors have sold out completely in the initial online ordering period and that no inventory will be available.

As expected, the most talked-about feature of the iPhone 7 was the one Apple removed: the 3.5mm headphone socket. The company did, though, come to the party prepared. It most likely planned to leak the move a long time in advance, to give people time to get used to the idea and to inform headphone purchasing decisions.

It supplied Lightning EarPods in the box, so the vast majority of iPhone owners who never use anything else could simply shrug and get on with it. It also included a 3.5mm-to-Lightning adapter so that those with existing wired headphones weren’t left out in the cold.

It marshalled its arguments, both during the keynote and in subsequent interviews...

The report measures overall satisfaction with cloud storage service providers among customers who currently subscribe to a cloud storage service to store data files, provide storage back-up access and help with media downloads/storage. Satisfaction is measured across nine factors (listed in order of importance): price of service; storage capacity; ease of use; variety of features offered; reliability of service; speed of downloading/uploading files; functionality across different devices; security; and consistency across operating systems.

Less than two weeks after Apple unveiled its headphone jack-less iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the company is already exploring the idea of doing the same on its flagship computing lineup. An anonymous reader shares a report on The Next Web: Apple might be going all-in with the wireless revolution as the company is now allegedly considering killing the headphone jack on the MacBook Pro. Users are reporting that as of recently Apple has been asking them to fill in a survey about the way they use their MacBook Pro and one of the questions pertains particularly to the headphone jack. Shared by Blake A. via Twitter, the question reads "Do you ever use the headphone port on your MacBook Pro with Retina display?", suggesting Apple is exploring going jackless with its laptops in the future. Given the Cupertino company just ditched the audio jack on the iPhone 7, the change is likely to eventually come to other Apple products too -- the real question is when.

It’s adorable, compact, and plastic free.

iBag, anyone? Apple files for a patent for a paper...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20160264304) with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for a “bag.” More precisely: a paper bag that may include a container formed of white solid bleached sulfate paper with at least 60% post-consumer content.

Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product.

The patent is apparently part of Apple’s environmentally inspired move away from plastic bags once used in its retail stores. The bag may have a reinforcement insert adhered to its interior, which may extend across and strengthen a fold of the bag container. And the bag handle may be formed of paper fibers knitted in an 8-stitch circular-knit pattern, and may have a diameter of at least 6.5 millimeters.

Apple made a big, polarizing splash when it announced its new wireless AirPods during last week’s iPhone 7 keynote. The AirPods, which are completely devoid of any wires, were met with plenty of mixed reactions online. Whether or not you agree with the design of the AirPods is one thing, but the new W1 wireless chip, Apple’s first, is promising to bring a better overall wireless audio experience to the masses.

Unfortunately, the AirPods don’t ship until late October, so unless you’re among the few who received early review units, you’ll have to wait until the fall before you can experience the $159 wireless earphones for yourself. That said, you can still take Apple’s new wireless W1 chip for a spin, arguably the most important component of its AirPods, anyway.

MacRumors reports that Apple is also asking users about battery life and other ports, including the SD card slot. One question asked "How do you upload photos from a digital camera or phone to your MacBook Pro with Retina Display?" An upgraded version of the MacBook Pro is expected (or at least hoped) to be unveiled next month.

Callblock: block calls from telemarketers

Callblock represents the start of an interesting new app category. Apple supports something called CallKit, similar to the content-blocking API that allows ad-blocking in Safari. CallKit allows you to build filtering rules to block calls by name and number.

The team that built Callblock spent most of their development time compiling a directory of telemarketers and setting up the infrastructure to keep the directory up to date.

So far, since I’ve had this installed, I have not gotten a single telemarketing call. Coincidence? Perhaps. But I’ll keep Callblock enabled, just in case.

Japan’s METI: Apple and Google practices hamper...

A report by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) — as noted by Nikkei — says Apple and Google engage in practices that undermine competition in the smartphone app market by making the most of their control over distribution channels.

The report looked at how these two firms, and others, use their positions of power to decide what app developers can and can’t do. Restricting what payment methods developers can accept and limiting their pricing freedom may not directly violate Japan's anti-monopoly law, but these practices lead to elimination of competitors, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry argues. A study group established at the ministry in January compiled the report by incorporating a survey of app developers that was conducted jointly with the Japan Fair Trade Commission.

Apple hires former Time Warner Cable exec

Apple has hired former Time Warner Cable exec Peter Stern as a vice president working on cloud services, which includes the technology company’s subscription offerings such as Apple Music and a potential streaming television service, reports the Wall Street Journal.

He was most recently chief product, people, and strategy officer at Time Warner Cable, but left when it was bought by Charter Communications. Stern will report to Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet software and services, according to the WSJ. His hiring is sure to revive speculation that Apple is preparing its own streaming television service (which may be true).

Apple’s Web TV offering, as originally planned (at least according to the rumor mill), was to be anchored by broadcasters such as ABC, CBS and Fox, but wouldn't include smaller channels...

Rumor: Current version of the Mac Pro hits 1,000...

The 2013 Mac Pro may be the final version of this model with no successor in the works.

As of September 13th, 1,000 days have passed since Apple released the first version of the redesigned Mac Pro computer.

The current Mac Pro came out on December 19th 2013, meaning that programmers and video professionals who need a high-performing Mac and buy one today will only have a couple years’ use before it becomes what Apple SVP Phil Schiller describes as a “really sad” five-year-old PC.

Oddly enough, this isn’t even the oldest model Apple still sells and you can inexplicably still buy the non-retina MacBook Pro that was released 1,555 days ago in June 2012.

Still, Apple is rumored to be revamping its Mac lineup in 2017 with a significant...

You can now make Circle-based payments via iMessage in iOS 10.

Apple has tied in with Circle, the social payments provider, and included iMessage-based functionality that allows payments to be quickly sent between users.

This allows the company to capitalize on its vision for more activity in social payments, which have taken off in China through the WeChat app. Circle chief executive Jeremy Allaire, who previously founded a number of successful ventures including online video platform Brightcove, says that after WeChat opened itself up for third-party developers to build apps on top of it, Wechat saw explosive growth as it added business services, utilities, payments and other services offered by third-party apps. Now, he says Apple is doing something similar with...

How to use the Apple Watch’s Digital Crown in...

The Digital Crown on the Apple Watch is Apple's answer to the crown found on mechanical watches. On traditional watches, the crown is used to set the date and time on a wristwatch. There are various ways you can use it in watchOS 3.

Double-click it to return to the last used app. Single-click it to return to the home screen. Press and hold it to use Siri. 

You can turn the Digital Crown to use Time Travel, zoom, scroll, or adjust what's on the screen. On the Apple Watch Series 2, turn it to gradually wake the display and slowly increase the brightness. Also, on Apple Watch Series 2, turn the Digital Crown to unlock the screen during a swimming workout.

Apple Music in iTunes just got more enjoyable and...

Fifteen months ago, Apple launched Apple Music, and more than 17 million subscribers are now using the service. But it hasn’t been without problems. The interface Apple offered in iTunes and in the iOS Music app was confusing, and it turned music listening into a chore.

Apple paid attention to users’ complaints, and has now released version 2 of Apple Music, to coincide with the release of iOS 10 and its updated Music app, and iTunes 12.5, which offers a number of tweaks and changes.

I’ve been using the new Apple Music for several weeks now, since it was made available to beta testers of Apple’s operating systems. It’s a solid upgrade, with lots of improvements to make the service easier to use, and it’s more enjoyable. Here’s how it works in iTunes, and...

You’ll enjoy going into battle with Napoleon: Total...

The Total War series has always been one of my favorites, starting with Rome: Total War way back in 2004 (where have the past 12 years gone??). Like many Apple loyalists, my patience deserted me and I played the series first through Boot Camp, and then Parallels. 

There always seemed to be something hindering the gameplay, however -- either through lagging gameplay, poor graphics or any number of other issues inherent with going through one operating system to get to another. I was excited when Feral Interactive brought Rome: Total War to the Mac, and even more so with Napoleon.

The game takes place (as you might have guessed) during the Napoleonic era. This covered the years 1799-1815, ending with Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo. If there was a better period for the Total War series to cover, I can’t think of one. It was a time of massive armies mixed with technological changes in the way wars were fought. While I was afraid that Napoleon: Total War might not be able...

The MOS Go is the battery I wish I could recommend as the top USB-C pick for fast charging and recharging. Unfortunately, during testing, a company spokesperson said that the firm needed to do some tuning of the firmware and certain hardware features and the device has yet to be finalized.

Macworld typically doesn’t review prototype hardware, only units coming off a production line. But the MOS Go was in early production and the company had intended to ramp up into a full launch. The company says the launch is delayed until it finishes working through the bugs. A new ship date has yet to be determined.

All Work and No Headphone Jack Makes Nilay a Dull Boy

A (partial!) selection of sentences containing the word “headphone” from Nilay Patel’s review of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus for The Verge:

  • And, yes, Apple has removed the headphone jack.

  • Removing the headphone jack is an act of pure confidence from
    Apple, which is the only company in tech that can set off a sea
    changes in the industry by aggressively dropping various
    technologies from its products.

  • And now it’s decided that — yikes — the headphone jack
    is over.

  • And third — here it is again — there’s no headphone jack.

  • Apart from the revised camera, the new home button, the screen,
    and — heyo! — the headphone jack, the other notable external
    hardware change to the iPhone 7 is the addition of stereo
    speakers.

  • Let’s talk about that headphone jack, shall...

"Nation state actors are going to probe to find weaknesses in all of our technologies," said Travis Smith, senior security research engineer at Tripwire. They "want to know what can be done not only in the event of a cyberwar but a kinetic war as well."

The world's biggest watch maker says the moniker — which is was once rumored to be the name of Apple's rumored smart watch — is too darn close to its own iSwatch product. Of course, Apple’s smartwatch turned out to be dubbed the “Apple Watch” instead of the “iWatch.”

Now, however, if Apple wants to use the name "iWatch" in the UK at some point in future, it can now do so only with certain products. According to the BBC News, these include computer software and computer accessories - but not computer hardware, monitors, audio and video devices or cameras.

Mixpanel: iOS 10 showing high adoption rate

As of 2 PM PT today -- slightly over one day after iOS 10 first became available -- iOS 10 is showing a 16.17% adoption rate. That means that of all iOS devices on the planet, over 16% have already been updated to the latest version of iOS. The numbers are generated by Mixpanel, which uses anonymized customer data to track actions across web and mobile. 

Mixpanel's VP of Engineering Joe Xavier predicts that iOS 10 will reach 50% adoption in less than 11 days, most likely on Sunday, September 25. By comparison, iOS 9 took 12 days to reach 50% and iOS 8 31 days. 

Another fascinating comparison is when iOS 10 is pitted against the latest version of Android, version 6.0 "Marshmallow". As of today, that mobile operating system has an 18.7% adoption rate -- and Marshmallow was first widely released almost a year ago on October 5, 2015. By later today, a greater...
