What you can and can’t restore through an iOS backup...

Glenn Fleishman, Macworld:

iTunes backups of an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch don’t contain apps and some kinds of media. They contain settings and certain kinds of documents stored within apps, and may contain images stored in an iOS device’s Camera Roll. Some apps that use iCloud or other cloud-based sync mark their local content as not needing to be backed up, since it can be restored by logging back into an account or resyncing.

Confused? Fair enough. What does and does not get backed up, and where various elements do get backed up, is a bit of a jigsaw puzzle. Glenn Fleishman does his best do lay all this out.

My two cents? Backup your music library, photos, critical documents on removable media, store it somewhere safe. Update that backup periodically.

Judge lifts $300,000 sanctions order against Apple...

A California federal judge has lifted a $300,000 sanctions order against Apple Inc. for missing a document production deadline in the Federal Trade Commission’s antitrust case against Qualcomm ruling that a magistrate judge cited unclear authority in issuing the order, according to Law360.

In December Apple was ordered to pay $25,000 each day it failed to produce evidence related to an FTC case against Qualcomm. In the legal battle, Apple sued Qualcomm, the world’s dominant supplier of baseband processors, alleging the chip supplier demanded unfair terms for its technology. However, Qualcomm denies the allegations and says Apple wouldn't have an iPhone business if it weren't for fair licensing of the company’s essential...

Apple granted a patent for ‘interface scanning for...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20180039395) for “interface scanning for disabled users” which the goal of making improved input devices and methods for physically-impaired users. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that various types of input devices, such as keyboards, mice, track pads, touch screens, and the like, have been developed to enable a user to interact with a computing device. While these traditional input devices provide users with a quick and intuitive way to interact with a computing device, they all require a significant amount of movement by the user. 

Apple notes that this presents a problem for physically-impaired users that lack the fine motor skills required to operate such input devices. For example, some physically-impaired users are unable to move a finger across the surface of a touch screen device and thus, cannot operate a touch-sensitive device, such as a tablet computer. Similar problems can arise with the use of a keyboard or...

How to send an email with Siri on an iPhone or iPad

Yesterday we looked at how to send a text message by dictating with Siri. You can also use Apple’s personal digital assistant on your iPhone or iPad to send an email. Here’s how:

  • Press and hold the Home button to activate Siri (or say “Hey, Siri” if you iPhone supports this feature).
  • Say something like “Email Matt Sellers” or “Send an email to Matt Sellers.” Or you can send an email to multiple recipients with a phrase like “Send an email to Matt Sellers and Katie Sellers.”
  • Siri opens your Messages app and grabs the email address of the person or persons you’re emailing. If the contact has more than one email address, you’ll be asked to choose the address you wish to use.
  • Tell Siri the subject of the email. For example: “Volleyball practice Thursday night.”
  • Dictate to Siri the contents of the email.
  • Wait for Siri to confirm the content of your text.
  • Tap Send or say Yes to send your email.

First HomePod orders begin heading to final...

Your pre-ordered HomePod unit is on its way to your loving arms.

The HomePod is en route, and customers in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia have begun receiving shipment notifications from Apple letting them know their orders have shipped and are on the way.

The first units are set to arrive in Australia and Apple is apparently using Next Day Air delivery in the United States, then shipping the units out from local hubs according to the tracking information.

Customers without a tracking number may be able to locate their unit by going to the UPS website, selecting the track by reference number option, and entering the phone number associated with a HomePod order.

For customers in the United States, deliveries will begin around 8 AM local time on Friday, February 9th. Apple is no longer offering the HomePod for February 9 delivery or in-store pickup, but the company will likely have a supply of HomePods available for walk-in purchase...

iOS’ “iBoot” component leaked to GitHub, quickly...

Apple, and its legal department, do not like it when you leak source code for core components of iOS on GitHub.

This is exactly what happened, as a chunk of source code, labeled “iBoot”, which is the part of iOS that is responsible for ensuring a trusted boot of the operating system, found its way onto GitHub. In other words, it’s the program that loads iOS, the very first process that runs when you turn on your iPhone. It loads and verifies the kernel is properly signed by Apple and then executes it, much the same way that a BIOS would function.

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.

Apple has traditionally been reluctant to release its source code to the public and has taken steps to keep iBoot secure and its code private. Where hackers and security researchers are concerned, bugs in the boot process are the most valuable ones if reported to Apple through its bounty...

Apple Says the Leaked iPhone Source Code is Outdated

Apple has responded to security concerns surrounding leaked iPhone source code, pointing out that any potential vulnerabilities would be outdated. From a report: "Old source code from three years ago appears to have been leaked," Apple said in a statement, "but by design the security of our products doesn't depend on the secrecy of our source code. There are many layers of hardware and software protections built in to our products, and we always encourage customers to update to the newest software releases to benefit from the latest protections." The iBoot source code for iOS 9, a core part of what keeps your iPhones and iPads secure when they turn on, was leaked on GitHub, Motherboard first reported. The source code leak was considered a major security issue for Apple, as hackers could dig through it and search for any vulnerabilities in iBoot.

Lee Kun-hee, the chairman of South Korean electronics giant Samsung, has been identified by police as a suspect in a tax evasion case, after authorities discovered evidence that 8.2 billion won ($7.5 million) in taxes was avoided by concealing funds in bank accounts opened under the names of other company executives.

[VIDEO] Enjoy the run through of the new emoji.

One thing that I did find puzzling about this video (embedded in main Loop post): About 30 seconds in, you’ll see emoji for Super Villains and Super Heroes. The difference? Super Villains wear pink and purple. Super Heroes wear red and blue.

Not crazy about this path. Associating specific colors with good and evil is, to me, the first step down a bad road. Maybe make the Super Villains distinctive in some other way?

HomePod won’t unseat Amazon in the smart speaker...

Apple’s launch of HomePod has intensified the competition in smart speaker market. According to TrendForce, Amazon Echo still tops the ranking of smart speaker products in 2018 with a market share in shipment of 50.8%, although down from 69.1% in 2017. 

The share of Google Home is projected at 21.6%, ranking the 2nd. The new Apple HomePod is expected to reach a share of 8.9%, while the numbers for Alibaba’s and Xiaomi's smart speakers will be 6.3% and 5.1% respectively, adds the research group.

TrendForce analyst Tom Tien points out that apart from first movers like Amazon and Google, the smart speaker market is expected to draw more attention after Apple joined the competition. Alibaba and Xiaomi have also introduced related products, driving the entire market to flourish.

Overall speaking, smart speaker is the interface for smart home devices. Although many companies have entered this market, Amazon...

Motherboard: Key iPhone source code gets posted...

Nope. Nope. Nope.

I hate headlines like this. Biggest leak in history? Come on.

Here’s where the reaction comes from:

Someone just 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 GitHub code is labeled “iBoot,” which is the part of iOS that is responsible for ensuring a trusted boot of the operating system. In other words, it’s the program that loads iOS, the very first process that runs when you turn on your iPhone. It loads and verifies the kernel is properly signed by Apple and then executes it—it’s like the iPhone’s BIOS.

This is true. It’s also true that Apple filed a copyright takedown and GitHub removed the post. But that’s a side note. Important, but a side note.

Buried down in the Motherboard article is this nugget:

Apple, Apple TV, and their original content strategy

This post from Pavan Rajam is long, well researched, and insightful, well worth the read if you are interested in Apple and their pursuit of the TV market.

Just a bit from the report:

Content development and production are not things Apple has done before. Will these shows even be good? Based on Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu’s progress on this front, success is possible but not guaranteed.

And:

In the current market, content is used to differentiate services, not hardware. Amazon, for example, uses original content to drive Prime subscriptions. It could care less whether you watch it on a Fire TV or another device.

And:

If growing Services revenue is a high priority, will this original content be available on non-Apple platforms (like Apple Music on Android, or iTunes on Windows)?

Those are just a taste of a much bigger...

∞ Apple Watch is a huge success. I think HomePod...

Apple Watch shipments beat expectations, topping 18 million in 2017, up by more than 54% on 2016. The Series 3 was the key growth driver, as total shipments of the latest version of Apple’s Watch were just under 9 million, making up nearly half of all shipments in 2017. Apple’s Q4 performance was impressive in itself, as shipments grew by more than 32% over Q4 2016 to 8 million, the highest ever number of shipments in a single quarter, not just for Apple, but for any wearable vendor.

I recognize that these are vastly different products, but Apple’s success with Apple Watch after much skepticism from the market reminds me strongly of the imminent rollout of HomePod.

The early watchOS experience is quite different from what we’ve got today. Complications (the hot spots on the watch face that update with things like notifications, current weather, etc.) and Activities integration are but two major changes that rolled out over time and significantly changed Apple Watch’s...

Eddy Cue on not carrying a wallet and keys and Apple...

Eddy Cue took the stage for an Apple Music Q&A at Variety’s Pollstar conference:

Eddy Cue, Apple senior vice president of software and services, says the goal is for everyone to have nothing in their pockets.

Well, other than an iPhone, he said, laughing.

Demonstrating the seemingly small but life-changing tech Apple is known for, Cue explained how he goes to work without even carrying keys or a wallet. “Not having keys to anything is really nice,” Cue said. “It’s simple, but it’s a big deal.”

And:

“Anytime you want to purchase something, the number of clicks, the number of things you have to do, you see dropoff,” Cue said. “Depending on how many there are, there are always huge dropoffs. With Apple Pay, you see something you want, you basically do the face ID and you’re done. It’s very easy to complete the transactions.”

And:

“For us, one of weirdest things in the music industry is the lack of transparency,” Cue said. “One of...

Apple applies for yet another head-mounted AR...

Apple has applied for yet another patent for an augmented reality (AR) headset. Patent filing number 20180039052 is for an “optical system for head-mounted display.”

The invention involves a head-mounted display that includes a display system and an optical system. Head-mounted displays such as virtual reality glasses use lenses to display images for a user. A microdisplay may create images for each of a user's eyes. A lens may be placed between each of the user's eyes and a portion of the microdisplay so that the user may view virtual reality content. 

However, in the patent filing, Apple says that, if care is not taken, a head-mounted display may be cumbersome and tiring to wear. Optical systems for head-mounted displays may use arrangements of lenses that are bulky and heavy. Extended use of a head-mounted display with this type of optical system may be uncomfortable. Apple thinks it can come up with a better solution than current AR glasses.

This isn’t...

Review: Yohann, an expensive but undeniably...

Normally, I deal with price at the end of reviews, but there are times when you have to address it right at the beginning – and this is definitely one of those times.

One way of looking at the price of the Yohann iPad stand is that it’s a rather small piece of wood costing $130. A different way of looking at it would be to say that it costs almost exactly the same amount as Apple charges for another iPad accessory: the leather sleeve for the 10.5-inch iPad, which we reviewed last year.

Jeff struggled to justify the price of that – but did conclude that you probably wouldn’t be disappointed if you bought it. Can we say the same with this? Well, let’s start by looking at its USP …

Arrival times for new HomePod orders now Feb. 12 (or...

Hope you ordered your HomePod early, as shipping times for the wireless speaker have slipped a bit. The Apple online store shows that orders placed today should arrive by Feb. 12 at the earliest.

In the U.S.,, HomePod deliveries will kick off at around 8 a.m. local time on Friday, Feb. 9. MacRumors says that Apple is using Next Day Air delivery in the U.S. and shipping out from local hubs, which is why there’s no tracking information available yet. And which should explain why I can’t track my HomePod order, which was placed on Feb. 2.

The device is just under seven inches tall and looks like a piece of furniture. It will be available in both space gray and white, and also acts as a hub for HomeKit devices to provide remote access to home automation.

iPhone source codes gets posted online

Yikes! Source code for “iBoot,” one of the most critical iOS programs, was anonymously posted on GitHub, which could pave the way for hackers and security researchers to find vulnerabilities in iOS and make iPhone jailbreaks easier to achieve, according to Motherboard.

iBoot is the program that loads iOS, the very first process that runs when you turn on your iPhone or iPad. It loads and verifies the kernel is properly signed by Apple and then executes it.

Apple takes special care to keep iBoot secure and its code private; 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.

Rumor: Apple to launch AirPower next month

According to an unnamed tipster at Best Buy, Apple is preparing to launch the AirPower wireless charging mat and new AirPods wireless charging case in March, claiming that Best Buy will stock AirPower from day one online and in-store., claims The Apple Post.

Announced at Apple's iPhone event in September 2017, the AirPower will be able to charge a Qi-compatible iPhone, an Apple Watch, and a pair of AirPods (in a special wireless charging case) at the same time regardless of where they're placed on the pad. AirPower hasn't been priced yet, but guesses have it costing anywhere from $150 - $200. 

Chances the rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 60%. I think we’re more likely looking at an April-May time frame. That said, I hope I’m wrong and that the AirPower does hit stores next month.

Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro is useful — when it works

Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro is a handy, inexpensive ($0.99) app for macOS (10.7 or higher) that can remove duplicate photos and videos from Photos or iPhoto (9.0 or later). When it works, that is.

To use it you'll have to have Photos or iPhoto running in the background. You'll also have to turn off Photo Stream and Photo Sharing (in the iPhone Preferences menu) if they're running. 

Once you've done this, launch and point it to your Photos or iPhoto library. It scans your library for duplicates. When it finds duplicates, it moves them to the trash. Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro can also clean the trash to recover disk space. 

However, it took a couple of attempts for me to get the utility to work. Twice it told me that Photos was "unresponsive" and couldn't scan the photo library. The third time was the charm and it ran and worked well.

How to send text messages with Siri on your iPhone...

Sure, you can send text messages on an iPhone or iPad using the virtual keyboard. However, it’s easier to do it using Siri, Apple’s “personal digital assistant.” Here’s how to do this:

  • Press and hold the Home button to activate Siri (or say “Hey, Siri” if you iPhone supports this feature).
  • Say something like “Text Laura Sellers” or “Send text to Laura Sellers.” Siri opens your Messages app and puts the name of the person you’re texting in the To field.
  • Siri will ask, “What do you want your message to say?” Dictate your text message.
  • When you’re done, Siri shows you the message and asks you if you want to send it.
  • Say “Yes” or “Send” to send the message. Or say “No” or “Cancel” to cancel the message.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple's support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)

Even though it was corrected, this could be called a snafu.

Download aggregator web site MacUpdate briefly linked to three malicious applications masquerading as legitimate downloads for Firefox, OnyX, and Deeper, that not only install the apps, but also deposit Monero, a cryptocurrency miner on downloader’s systems.

On February 1st, MacUpdate updated its legitimate download links to installers for the three apps. Over the course of the incident, download links to OnyX and Deeper by Titanium Software were replaced with similar URLs and Firefox downloads were redirected to a bogus installed.

The payload was delivered as a .dmg file, but the installers were scripts that download and install the payload, plus retrieved a legitimate copy of the app in question to convince the user that the app installed properly.

Representatives from MacUpdate have since fixed the download links and offered the following instructions for removal of the malware as well as...
