iOS as OS of choice for millennials

Tim Bajarin, writing for Tech.pinions:

This younger generation does use PCs. However, they actually spend the most time on their iPhones and iPads and Macs are mostly relegated to serious productivity projects.

Agree. Mostly.

Apple files patent involving inductive charging for...

Apple has applied for a patent (number ) with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for a "magnetic connector and alignment of connectible devices." It's for a magnetic docking system with inductive charging.

Inductive charging (also known as "wireless charging") — which Apple uses with the Apple Watch — uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two objects. This is usually done with a charging station. Energy is sent through an inductive coupling to an electrical device, which can then use that energy to charge batteries or run the device.

Apple's patent certainly involves iOS devices such as the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, but could also involve Macs. That's assuming the invention ever sees the light of day. Apple publishes many patents that never come to fruition. However, this one seems a strong contender to see the light of day at some point.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that portable digital...

Some say iOS 9's ad blocking features aren...

With iOS 9, Apple has allowed apps that block display advertising in mobile Safari. Not surprisingly, this has caused a stir among online publishers. Enabling ad blocking in mobile browsers will probably mean that more and more publishers will be forced to move their content from mobile websites to designated apps where advertising can't be blocked.

However, Statistica, which provides stats and studies from more than 18,000 sources, says that for Apple to allow ad blocking in Safari may not be such big a deal, because users are spending the vast majority of their time in mobile apps anyway. Why? According to data from Flurry Analytics, Americans spent an average of 3 hours and 40 minutes per day using mobile devices in the past quarter. 

Of that total, they spent...

Fake Apple Stores thriving in China

On a bustling street in China’s southern boomtown of Shenzhen, more than 30 stores carrying Apple Inc’s iconic white logos peddle pre-orders for the new iPhone, a gadget that has become a status symbol among many better-off Chinese.

Many of the stores look just like Apple’s signature outlets, right down to the sales staff kitted out in blue T-shirts bearing the company’s white logo and the sample iPads and iWatches displayed on sleek wooden tables.

First, what the fuck is an iWatch? Second, I wonder if there’s anything Apple can, or would, do about this. According to the story, the stores are selling “genuine Apple products.” Interesting problem.

Apple releases iOS 9.0.1 update

This is probably worth snagging.

And, with any luck, it’ll take care of some of the larger issues users have been having.

– Fixes an issue where some users could not complete setup after updating.

– Fixes an issue where sometimes alarms and timers could fail to play.

– Fixes an issue in Safari and Photos where pausing video could cause the paused frames to appear distorted.

How to teach 'Hey, Siri' to recognize only...

Siri — the digital personal assistant on iPads and iPhones — has been spruced up in iOS 9 to provide more detailed and relevant answers, and has a few new features. For instance, the "Hey Siri" hands-free feature that debuted in iOS 8 has been improved so that it can do a better job of recognizing your voice as it's listening to everyone within earshot all the time. 

Here's how to enable this feature:

  • Go to Settings > General > Siri and make sure that Siri is turned on. 
  • Tap the "Allow 'Hey Siri' " button (it turns green).
  • Siri asks you to say “Hey Siri” three different times, then say “Hey Siri, how’s the weather today?” and finally, “Hey Siri, it’s me."
  • After you've done this, tap the Done button.

Now when your iPhone is connected to a charger, preface a question with "Hey, Siri" and the personal assistant gets to work. Also, note that this works with an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus even when they...

Lara Croft GO does touchscreen Tomb Raiding right

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play. 

You can play the first couple of Tomb Raider games on the iPhone and iPad for a buck or two a pop, but aside from the nostalgic reminder, you shouldn’t bother—neither holds up all that well after nearly two decades of dramatic genre advancement. And aging aside, the games weren’t meant to be played on touch devices, and don’t control very well. You’ll turn the graceful maneuvers of legendary adventurer Lara Croft into the stumbles of a buffoon with minimal effort.

The issue is how awful they look, how invasive they can be (auto-play audio/video, yuck!), their attempts at deceiving your website’s audience, and tracking your every mouse click or tap around the web in order to serve their own needs while sacrificing the privacy of the customers they are seeking to gain.

Apple releases iOS 9.0.1 with fixes for setup...

(credit: Andrew Cunningham)

We're just a week out from the public release of iOS 9, and the operating system is already getting its first update. iOS 9.0.1 is primarily focused on fixing small-but-annoying bugs in the OS.

According to the release notes, the update fixes a problem where some users couldn't complete the setup assistant process after upgrading. Issues that would keep alarms and timers from going off, distort paused video in Safari and Photos, and break custom APN settings installed via profiles have also been fixed.

We've gotten some notes from readers about the setup assistant bug. After updating to iOS 9, some users who tried to press "continue" to walk through the assistant had their iDevices lock up and get stuck in a loop. If you have a device that's acting this way, you ought to be able to download and install the update...

Desperate for a new iPhone but have no money to spare? T-Mobile’s got you covered with an iPhone 6s plan that will only cost you $5 a month, or $9 for the larger 6s Plus, if you trade in your current phone.

T-Mobile’s Jump On Demand plan lets you upgrade your phone three times per year for a monthly hardware fee on top of your regular cell phone plan. The carrier had a similar promotion for the last-generation iPhones, but prices started at $15 a month. Sprint’s iPhone upgrade plan starts at $15.

If you don’t have a phone to trade in, you can still sign up for the Jump On Demand upgrade plan for $20 a month. Once the 18-month contract is up, you can pay off the phone for $125 less than retail. For a 16GB iPhone 6s, the total would come to $524.

If you neglected to preorder and still want one of the new phones, it's time to get over to the nearest Apple Store and camp out until early Friday morning.

In just nine months, Instagram wooed 100 million new amateur photographers, bringing its total user base to 400 million. Sure, parent company Facebook still slays with almost 1.5 billion monthly active users, but for a social network, Instagram’s announcement is nothing to sneeze at.


Even more impressive than its swift growth is how international Instagram’s reach is. The network said that 75 percent of its community lives outside the U.S., with more than 50 percent of the newest 100 million users residing in Europe and Asia. This makes Instagram’s places search filter more useful if you’re looking for somewhere specific, or if you’re in the mood to explore, the Trending Places section is full of stunning images from exotic locales.

With the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus due to arrive Friday, T-Mobile has unveiled an US$5 a month for the iPhone 6s and $9 a month for the iPhone 6s Plus with JUMP! On Demand and trade-in of an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Unfortunately, those prices are for the 16GB models, which have a paucity of storage.

T-Mobile’s new pricing builds on the Un-carrier’s $20 a month for a new iPhone 6s 16GB with JUMP! On Demand without a trade-in. Now, your trade-in value for any old phone you own brings that monthly price down to $10 a month with the trade-in of iPhone 5s, Note 5 or Note edge and $15 a month with trade-in of almost any other phone you own like an iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, HTC M8 and Motorola Droid Turbo. 

T-Mobile customers who have already pre-ordered their new iPhone with trade-in will get the same offer with an upfront bill credit, according to John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile...

What's more, 20 percent believe using Apple Pay could encourage them to spend more. According to eDigitalResearch, the spend limit of contactless payments and Apple Pay has increased from US$30.5 to $46 as of Sept. 1, meaning more Apple Pay users could be using their iPhones to make payments.

Fancred's playbook for sports app domination:...

Fancred started out as a social network for sports fans, a place where people could share photos from games and talk some mess about rival teams. But, like Facebook and Twitter when they gathered steam, the 3-year-old platform has bigger ambitions. It wants to be the next global sports media company. That plan starts falling into place on Wednesday, when Fancred adds live-streaming video and real-time game scores to its mobile apps and website—and that’s just the beginning.

Fancred just might be the first sports app with a Periscope-like live-streaming feature. Anyone can broadcast on the app, though there is a 5-minute limit. That cap serves two purposes: It gives the person broadcasting time to...

A new remote for Apple TV

This week’s roundup includes a new remote that takes advantage of Apple TV’s new capabilities. Siri, are you listening?


The latest version of Apple TV, of course, will include searches using Siri, as well as features that position the machine as a gaming console. The $20 Survivor Play for Siri Remote is built for both purposes, featuring a microphone button that lets you do voice searches, while being made with “impact-absorbing silicone” to take the brunt of gaming uses. No word on when the device will be available for shipping.

What Goes Around Comes Around: Russia Gets Hacked

Russia has been a prime suspect in recent cyberattacks launched against U.S. government targets. However, Russia has been poked with the other end of the hacker stick. For more than two months, hacker attacks originating in China have bedeviled Russia's military and telecom sectors, researchers at Proofpoint revealed last week. "We also observed attacks on Russian-speaking financial analysts working at global financial firms and covering telecom corporations in Russia," wrote Thoufique Haq and Aleksy F, authors of the report.

Macs and iOS devices can listen and talk; one day...

In the long-ago days of 2012, IBM's seventh annual "5 in 5" -- a list of innovations that "have the potential to change the way people work, live and interact during the next five years" — predicted that computers would gain the ability to smell and taste. It hasn't happened yet, but is there a need for your Mac or iOS device to be able to sniff scents?

IBM predicts that tiny sensors embedded in your computer or cell phone will detect if you're coming down with a cold or other illness. By analyzing odors, biomarkers and thousands of molecules in someone's breath, doctors will have help diagnosing and monitoring the onset of ailments such as liver and kidney disorders, asthma, diabetes and epilepsy by detecting which odors are normal and which are not.

Perhaps such tech could some tie in with Apple's Health app and HealthKit software. Currently, the apps are only on iOS devices. But other iOS apps have come to Mac OS...

Validating the integrity of your copy of Xcode

A few days ago, we posted the story about the XcodeGhost malware that made its way onto the App Store via compromised copies of Xcode.

In response, Apple pulled affected apps from the store and, just as importantly, sent out letters to developers to test their copies of Xcode, to make sure it was indeed a valid copy from Apple.

Here’s how.

Turntable is a fun 'real (well, kinda) album...

If you longingly remember the heyday of digital albums, you're the person for whom Turntable for Mac. It's a "real album" app for Mac OS X and is available at the Mac App Store for US$14.99. (A demo is available at the product web site.)

It's touted as the first desktop music player ever to present real albums as you have in a physical collection. And to an extent, that's true. Albums and album art play full-screen and wide-screen on your Mac. However, Turntable doesn't replace iTunes; it simply provides a new, colorful interface.

The interface is fun to use. It uses Albums as the main navigation medium. You can scroll through a matte collection of tiled album art. A slider lets you adjust the size of the tiles. If you have a 27-inch iMac, you may want 'em big. If you're on an 11-inch MacBook Air, you'll probably prefer smaller icons.

You can also choose to display...

How to set up the Workout app in watchOS 2

Apple has released watchOS 2, the first major software update for the Apple Watch. If you've downloaded it (and you should) and haven't yet tried the Workout app, here's how to set it up:

° Go to the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

° Select the Health app. Enter your birthday, sex, height and weight.

Next go to the Workout app. 

You can either enable or disable the "Show Goal Metric." When this is enabled, the smartwatch displays distance, calorie or elapsed time metrics numerically instead of via a progress ring during workouts. Personally, I recommend you enable Show Goal Metric.

Next you can enable Power Saving Mode if you wish. When this is on, the Apple Watch conserves battery life by disabling the heart rate sensor during running and walking workouts. When the heart rate sensor is off, calorie burn...

The iPhones 6S

The pattern is pretty clear. In even-numbered years (2008, 2010, 2012, 2014) Apple releases all-new iPhone form factors: 3G, 4, 5, 6/6 Plus. In the subsequent years, they release “S” variants: iPhones that look nearly identical to their predecessors, but with improved components.

Why do they do this?

There are some ecosystem advantages to this tick-tock1 schedule. Most iPhone cases, for example, fit both the tick and tock iPhones. (The rare exceptions are certain hard cases with extremely tight tolerances. The iPhones 6S, for example, are both a few tenths of a millimeter bigger, wider, and thicker than their corresponding siblings from last year.) I think there are some branding advantages to this two-year cycle as well. iPhones are iconic devices. The devices themselves are recognizable. Keeping each new form factor around for two model years lets that iconic appearance seep deeper into the mass market...

Want to use Office on your new iPad Pro? Then you’ll...

The iPad Pro, with its optional stylus and keyboard-cover, should be a fine machine to run Microsoft's Office apps for iOS.

And it probably will be, but there's a catch. The Office apps on the current iPads offer both viewing and editing documents for free. A handful of features require Office 365 subscriptions, available as in-app purchases, but the core editing capabilities are all zero cost.

Install those same apps on the iPad Pro once it arrives in November, however, and all those editing features will go away. Office on the iPad Pro will require an Office 365 subscription for any and all editing.

Former GM and BMW Executive Warns Apple: Your Car...

An anonymous reader writes: With rumors that Apple is not only moving ahead on its electric car initiative, but trying to accelerate its development, a former GM and BMW exec is giving a few words of warning. Bob Lutz appeared on CNBC and expressed his doubts that Apple has a fighting chance to make any impact on the auto industry. "And when it comes to actually making cars," Lutz said, "there is no reason to assume that Apple, with no experience, will suddenly do a better job than General Motors, Ford, Volkswagen, Toyota or Hyundai. So I think this is going to be a gigantic money pit, but then it doesn't matter. I mean Apple has an embarrassment of riches, they don't know where to put the cash anymore. So if they burn 30 or 40 billion dollars in the car business, no one's going to notice."
