While Portrait Mode was first tuned to work best with people’s faces, this video demonstrates the feature on a dog sitting still (which may be the hardest part).

Apple Joins Wireless Power Consortium Amid Rumors of...

If you've been holding out hope for wireless charging to come to the iPhone, chew on this: Apple joined the Wireless Power Consortium. From a report: Last week, a leaked note suggested that Apple is working on adding wireless charging to three phones scheduled for release in 2017. The technology may be similar to what the company has already implemented with the Apple Watch, though other reports have hinted at charging solutions that can add power to devices from a distance. The Wireless Power Consortium is the group behind Qi, a wireless charging standard that uses inductive power transfers to charge without cords.

They’re still available to order online but with a wait time of 5 to 6 weeks and no option to ship to a store. Perhaps Apple should reconsider making its own displays.

Cindori has introduced VR Desktop, an $19.99 app that lets you use macOS together with Virtual Reality (VR) headsets. It requires macOS 10.11 or later and Oculus Rift DK2.

According to the folks at Cindori, VR Desktop allows you to: 

  • Create a giant virtual multi-monitor workspace that works seamlessly with macOS and third party applications;
  • Play games and watch movies in custom virtual environments;
  • Enhance your macOS experience by loading custom virtual environments with a multiple screen setup. 

For now VR Desktop only works with the the Oculus Rift dev kit (DK2). However, Cindori plans to support other VR headsets.

The appearance of Apple's name on the membership list of the Wireless Power Consortium, Qi's creator, over the last week adds credence to that rumor. Its name was not on the list cached by Google's search engine last Tuesday.

John Biggs, writing for TechCrunch: In what amounts to one of the purest and most interesting experiments in assessing the value of Mac OS's App Store, the founder of Rogue Amoeba posted a description of what happened when he pulled his app Piezo. The result? More revenue as a whole without much damage to sales. The impetus for the move came after Apple pulled the Dash app off of the App Store. In the 100-day period since the move, Dash maintained and even increased revenue and found that its users didn't care which platform they were using -- 84% of the customers simply moved over to the independent app license from the App Store license. The bottom line? "It feels great to have full control over my business and to avoid App Store installation/updating/purchasing issues," wrote Dash creator Bogdan Popescu. When Paul Kafasis tried to move away from the App Store he was worried he'd lose half of his sales. After all, many months saw about 50% of sales coming from the App Store...

AAPL briefly reaches an all-time high share price

The rally for shares in Apple continues today, with the stock briefly touching an all-time record share price of $133.82 this morning. It's now hovering around $133.68 (yes, we are obsessively watching the Apple World Today stock ticker in the sidebar).

What's fueling this rise in share price? The stock jumped from about $121 per share to about $129 per share the day after Apple reported its Q1 2017 earnings, but it appears that there is a lot of anticipation for the next-generation iPhone(s) on Wall Street. Goldman Sachs raised its price target for AAPL to $150 today, and there's optimism that the company can easily reach that number.

You'll also notice that Apple's market capitalization is just below $700 billion. A share price of $150 per share would bring the market cap to about $785 billion. If it ever got to about $191 per share, we'd see the first company with a valuation of $1 trillion...

Apple retail staff were told to keep the product on display yet not sell any units if people asked, according to a Business Insider source.

A new report from KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo indicates that the upcoming iPhone 8 will be about the same physical size as the 4.7 inch iPhone 7 and yet pack a much bigger battery, comparable to the 2700 mAH battery in iPhone 7 Plus.

With reports indicating the OLED iPhone screen is circa 5.5 inches, it seems that the ‘no bezels’ rumor is true as its the only way the device would be able to be similar in physical width and height to a 4.7 inch iPhone.

For $80 a month, Verizon customers receive unlimited 4G data on a single smartphone. Anyone with multiple devices can add two lines on Verizon Unlimited for $70 per line per month ($140 total), three for $54 ($162 total) per line, or four for $45 ($180 total) per line.

Analyst: ‘iPhone 8’ will offer longer battery life

In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the “iPhone 8” will adopt a higher-cost stacked logic board design to support longer battery life.

“As battery material tech isn’t likely to see major breakthroughs in the next 3-5 years, mainboard area can only be reduced via stacked SLP, which makes space for larger battery and extended usage time,” he writes. “Thanks to stacked SLP, we expect the OLED iPhone to have similar dimensions to a 4.7” TFT-LCD iPhone, and have comparable battery capacity (equipped with around 2,700 mAh L-shaped 2-cell battery pack) to a 5.5” TFT-LCD iPhone. The battery life of the OLED iPhone could be better than that of the 5.5” TFT-LCD model as OLED panels are more energy-efficient than their TFT-LCD counterparts.”

Kuo added that the battery life of the next gen iPhone with an OLED display could be better than that of a 5.5-inch model with a...

Comment: Unless Apple pulls a rabbit from the hat,...

Apple is rarely the first to adopt a new technology. From smartphones themselves to fingerprint readers, Apple’s usual approach is to sit back and watch what other companies do, then aim to produce a better version some way down the line.

With smartphones, Apple watched other companies launch devices which required a stylus, and then created one that could be used with your finger. With fingerprint readers, Apple looked at ones what required you to roll your finger across an optical reader and then created a far more reliable one-touch capacitive sensor. And so on.

For a long time, it looked like it was doing the same thing with wireless charging – but that now seems in some doubt …

How to set up your Mac for Wi-Fi Calling

Chris Hauk, MacTrast:

You can, in fact, make phone calls from your Mac. Wi-Fi (WiFi) calling is one of the perks you get when you choose to go with Apple’s complete eco-system. If you own an iPhone 5c or newer devices and one of the “Wi-Fi Calling” compatible devices (Mac, Apple Watch, iPod touch or iPad), you’re one step closer to making what Apple named “Wi-Fi calls on other devices.” It’s imperative that all your devices are properly registered under one Apple ID connected to one iCloud account.

If you own a Mac and an iPhone, this is worth setting up. It may already work and, if not, getting this to work may solve some other problems for you.

I actually prefer the audio quality of calls on my Mac. I find the sound subtle, nuanced when compared to my iPhone.

Tim Cook: Fake news is killing people’s minds

In an impassioned plea, Mr Cook, boss of the world’s largest company, says that the epidemic of false reports “is a big problem in a lot of the world” and necessitates a crackdown by the authorities and technology firms.

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Telegraph, he calls for a campaign similar to those that changed attitudes on the environment to educate the public on the threat posed by fabricated online stories.

And:

“It has to be ingrained in the schools, it has to be ingrained in the public,” said Mr Cook. “There has to be a massive campaign. We have to think through every demographic.

“We need the modern version of a public-service announcement campaign. It can be done quickly if there is a will.”

A group of Australian banks previously applied to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) for permission to jointly negotiate over access to Apple Pay and the Near Field Communication (NFC)  function on iPhones. Today they announced that they’ve narrowed the application to solely focus on open access to the NFC function.

The four banks making the application – Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank, and Westpac – want open access to the NFC function on the iPhone. Without this, “no genuine competition in the provision of mobile wallets is possible and Apple will have a stranglehold on this strategically important future market,” they claim. The applicants flatly reject Apple’s unsupported assertions that the application is about an objection to the fees that Apple wishes to impose, rather than NFC access.

However, Apple doesn’t allow third-party electronic payment apps to be installed on the iPhone. The...

How Apple can make music sound sweeter

Dan Moren, Macworld:

Even as the company continues to push its Apple Music venture, there are a few places where Apple would be better served by re-examining the way it approaches music. From services to software to hardware, Apple’s gotten pretty comfortable about where it stands with music—but not necessarily because it has the best solutions out there.

Dan digs into three specific areas: Fixing iTunes and Music apps, improving AirPlay, and improving the speaker situation.

One particular snippet I found intriguing:

Granted, perhaps it would be more effective to just snap up Sonos—especially if Apple could find a way to integrate Siri.

I can’t imagine this isn’t on an Apple drawing board somewhere.

Ben Lovejoy, 9to5Mac:

While early rumors suggested that Apple was holding out for long-range charging, without the need to place the iPhone on a charging pad, those hopes appear to have been dashed by more recent reports. These suggest that Apple will, like other manufacturers, use simple inductive charging.

Apple is now listed as a member of the Qi Wireless Power Consortium. Qi is an inductive wireless charging standard that is already in use in more than a thousand products.

Ben quotes IHS Technology analyst Vicky Yussuff:

The success of wireless charging adoption from Apple’s competitors is something that Apple can no longer ignore. IHS Technology consumer survey data shows over 90% of consumers want wireless charging on their next device.

Samsung supposedly makes a deal with Apple for 60-...

Samsung Display, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, has made a deal with Apple to supply an additional 60 million units of organic light-emitting diode panels, worth about $4.3 billion, for the next-generation iPhone, according to The Korea Herald.

The new deal comes after the Korean display maker struck a deal last year supplying 100 million OLED display panels for the upcoming “iPhone 8,” which will be the first iPhone to adopt an OLED screen, the article claims. Considering Apple sells 200 million iPhones a year, the combined 160 million units of OLED panels will make up almost 80% of the entire sales. So far the only product Apple makers with an OLED is the Apple Watch. LG provides the smartwatch displays. iPhones and iPads use LCD technology, which offers lower manufacturing costs than OLED screens.

LCDs use a backlight behind the screen to emit light, and act as a valve...

Apple becomes a member of the Wireless Power...

Apple has joined the Wireless Power Consortium, hinting that the upcoming “iPhone 8” will indeed support wireless charging, at least on some models. The WPC is a group that includes makers of mobile phones, consumer electronics, batteries, semiconductors, components, wireless power technology and infrastructure such as wireless operators, furniture and automotive parts.

The WPC and its 200-plus members work to make Qi an industry standard. It’s already in 200-plus million products. Qi charges or powers an array of devices, from smartphones to cordless kitchen appliances and combines induction and resonance technologies

“The world market for wireless charging is expected to exceed 350 million enabled receiver units shipped in 2017,” says Vicky Yussuff, analyst at IHS Technology. “To date, this volume has largely been driven through the backing...

Apple Pay may be coming to Target ‘soon’

According to a customer service tweet from Target — as noted by 9to5Mac — thesecond-largest discount store retailer in the U.S. is investigating Apple Pay and is working on getting the technology in its stores. Specifics are unclear, but the tweet said that it would happen “soon.”

Target’s CEO promised Apple Pay two years ago, saying it would launch “soon,” but nothing ever came to fruition. Instead, Target added Apple Pay support to its mobile app and announced plans to allow users to pay via smartphone with their REDcard debit or credit card through a smartphone.

Target operates 1,803 locations throughout the U.S. Their retail formats include the discount store Target, the hypermarket SuperTarget, and "...

Samsung has signed a deal with Apple to make 160 million OLED panels for the company’s next-generation iPhone, according to the Korea Herald. The iPhone 8 will likely debut in the fall with an OLED screen and Apple needs all the panels it can get for its new flagship phone.

The iPhone 8 is expected to distance itself from the iPhone 7 with a radical new all-glass design, an OLED screen between 5.2-5.8 inches, wireless charging. Rumors indicate the phone will have almost no bezels with the Touch ID home button somehow integrated into the screen.

External Link: Some Apps Making More Outside the Mac...

After Apple removed the code snippet manager Dash from the Mac App Store, its developers found that they actually made more money afterward, but that was likely due to the increased media coverage. In a less biased test, Rogue Amoeba also decided to stop selling its audio recording app Piezo on the Mac App Store due to Apple’s onerous restrictions. Even though the Mac App Store accounted for about half of Piezo’s sales before being removed, Rogue Amoeba found that nearly all customers shifted to direct sales — in other words, the Mac App Store wasn’t contributing much to product discovery. Plus, thanks to direct
sale transaction fees of just a few percent, versus Apple’s 30 percent, Rogue Amoeba made almost $5 more per copy of Piezo and more overall revenues after pulling it from the Mac App Store. Although results would undoubtedly vary from case to case, Rogue Ameoba’s experience shows that the Mac App Store may not be worthwhile for many developers.

Rumor: Apple to release 5-inch iPhone 8 model, may...

It’s a rumor, but there may be some truth to it.

Japanese web blog Macotakara has a new rumor in that Apple will introduce a 5-inch iPhone model this year.

The site also state that “reliable sources in Taiwan” have stated that only the all-glass model of the iPhone will support wireless charging this year, while Apple will also stop including the headphone jack adapter.

Recently, it was rumored that apple’s 5-inch iPhone would arrive with a vertical dual-camera design. This model is said to be nearly identical in terms of specifications to the “iPhone 7s” and “iPhone 7s Plus.”

Some reports have stated that only the glass model will support the wireless charging feature. This implies that only the top-tier iPhone 8, which is rumored to retail for about $1,000, will support wireless charging.

The current report seems to corroborate that the iPhone 8 will use inductive wireless charging rather than long-range. The technology is said to be supplied...

As someone who prefers to travel handbaggage-only, gadgets can often prove a challenge. As I like to keep up with photo editing as I go, I generally travel with my MacBook Pro as well as iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch and a compact camera. Not only do I need space for the gadgets themselves, but also the associated cables and chargers.

But for a trip to Havana last week – a destination I finally managed to check off from my bucket list – I decided that I could get by with two camera batteries and use my MacBook Pro to charge everything else …

Prince’s Warner Brothers music catalog released on...

Following Prince’s abrupt retraction of his entire catalog from all music streaming service except for Tidal in 2015, the artist’s catalog has returned.

As rumored last month, Tidal’s exclusivity officially ended on Sunday after Warner Brothers made its collection of Prince tunes available to all streaming platforms, including big players Apple Music and Spotify. The release coincides with tonight’s Grammy Awards, where industry stars are expected to pay tribute to the late musician onstage.

Apple has already begun advertising the catalog’s availability and has sent out promotional emails linking new subscribers too the music.

The Warner Bros. Records catalog contains a number of Prince’s greatest hits, including “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Purple Rain” and “When Doves Cry,” but lacks deeper cuts and rare recordings held in the artist’s Paisley Park vault.

Warner Bros. Records has since been working to return the artist’s catalog to popular streaming...

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day; plan accordingly

Tuesday, Feb. 14, is Valentine’s Day. You knew that, didn’t you? If not, I’ve rounded up some websites that will help you prepare for the romantic day.

First of all, you can impress your special one (or ones) with your impressive knowledge of the history of Valentine’s Day. Well, actually, the saga of the lovers’ day — and the story of its patron saint — is shrouded in mystery. February has long been celebrated as a month of romance, and St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. But who was Saint Valentine, and how did he become associated with this ancient rite?

Saint Valentine, according to romantic legend, was a kind-hearted Roman priest who married young couples against the wishes of Emperor Claudius II, and was beheaded for his deeds on the Feb. 14. In truth, the exact origins and identity of St. Valentine are not known. You can learn more about the legendary figure and the theories of the origins...

Sonos ad echoes Apple’s ‘1984’ commercial as company...

The latest Sonos ad – shown during last night’s Grammys, alongside one for Apple’s Carpool Karaoke – echoes Apple’s famous ‘1984’ commercial, the hammer thrown through a screen replaced by a speaker thrown through a window. The Verge isn’t a fan.

This is no critique of capitalism, or the American way, or even the dehumanizing effect of technology — she’s only complaining because the people she’s observing haven’t dropped hundreds of dollars on Sonos speakers.

You can judge for yourself below. But if the ad does inspire you to invest in some Sonos tech, Brits might want to buy sooner rather than later as the company has announced that it will shortly be raising its UK prices by up to 25% …

Writing for 9to5Mac, Chance Miller says the problems with LG UltraFine 5K displays and routers is a strong sign that Apple should return to the display business. He’s right, and I still hope for a Thunderbolt Display with an integrated GPU that has been rumored in the past.

A GPU, or graphics processing unit, is a single-chip processor that creates lighting effects and transforms objects every time a 3D scene is redrawn. These are mathematically-intensive tasks, which otherwise, would put quite a strain on the central processing unit (CPU).  Removing this burden from the CPU on the computer itself frees up cycles that can be used for other tasks.

Verizon is bringing back its unlimited data plans. With the new Verizon Unlimited plan launching on Monday, customers can use as much 4G LTE data, send as many texts as they like and talk for as long as they please … for $80 per month. An equivalent uncapped family plan charges $45 per line for 4 people, or $180 monthly.

The ‘unlimited’ plans have a few strings attached, namely hotspot tethering is limited at 10 GB for 4G (will fallback to 3G after) and although data is uncapped, high data users will not be prioritized if the network is congested …
