Apple Releases iOS 9.0.1 for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

Apple today released a version of iOS 9.0.1 designed for its newest devices, the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. iOS 9.0.1 was initially seeded to the public yesterday, but that version of the software did not include support for the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus.

Customers who receive an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus tomorrow will need to update to the new operating system after unboxing their devices, as they will presumably ship with iOS 9.0 installed.

iOS 9.0.1 is a minor software update that was released one week after the public launch of iOS 9. It includes several bug fixes, including a fix for an issue that prevented some users from upgrading their iPhones to iOS 9 because of an unresponsive "Slide to Upgrade" dialog.

Apple Releases Second iOS 9.1 Public Beta

Apple today seeded the second iOS 9.1 beta to public beta testers, two weeks after seeding the first beta a day after its "Hey Siri" fall media event. Today's beta is the same as the second iOS 9.1 beta seeded to developers yesterday.

Public beta testers who already have iOS 9.1 installed can get the second beta as an over-the-air update, and those interested in getting early release software from Apple can sign up to participate in Apple's Beta Software Program.

iOS 9.1 is an update mainly designed for the iPad Pro, adding support for accessories like the Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil, both of which require deep integration with iOS 9. It will also include support for the new Apple TV.

The update also includes...

Invite—the easiest way to organize meetings on the go

We all know that organizing group meetings can be tricky—especially when you’re on the move. It’s difficult to coordinate multiple people’s schedules on a small screen.

Say hello to Invite—the easiest way to organize meetings on the go.

Invite is available for iPhones in the U.S. and Canada, and coming soon to Windows Phone and Android phones. The app works best for people with Office 365 business and school subscriptions, but also works...

Apple to offer refund for all purchases of Peace app

You don’t have to go through developer Marco Arment himself for a refund on the Peace app, Apple will send you a refund.

As of now, Apple is refunding the money spent for the best-selling Peace content blocker app. The app was pulled by Arment two days after going online.

“Apple notified me this afternoon that they’ll be proactively refunding all purchases of Peace,” Mr. Arment said in a blog post. “As far as I know, this effectively never happens. When I decided to pull the app, I asked some Apple friends if this was even possible, and we all thought the same thing: iTunes billing works the way it works, period, and no special cases can be made.”

However, there are still a lot of people who are running pre-iPhone 6 devices. Tech recycler Gazelle has a great deal between today and September 30, 2015 where Apple World Today readers can get up to $40 off of the already low price of a pre-owned iPhone 6 or 6 Plus.

The company takes gently-used iPhones and iPads, cleans and repairs them as necessary, and then sells them online at big savings.

OS X Server 5.0 out now for El Capitan, free upgrade...

With OS X 10.11 "El Capitan" set to hit Macs on September 30, Apple has updated the OS X Server app to version 5.0, and it's a free upgrade for users of the year-old Yosemite operating system.

"OS X Server 5.0 is now operating system version independent. The same version of Server can be used on Mac computers running OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 and OS X El Capitan 10.11," Apple notes.

This change is a break from Apple's past policy. Although the desktop version of OS X is free (if you've bought a Mac, that is), the server app costs $19.99 and until this year had to be re-purchased for another $19.99 with each new OS release. Now, though, the $19.99 server bundle will work on multiple versions of OS X.

iOS 9 adoption rate continues to grow

For several days after the iOS 9 release on Sept. 16, ISPs and customers reported problems downloading iOS 9 due to overloaded servers. Obviously, the demand for iOS 9 was higher than even Apple anticipated, but how much higher? Few organizations outside of Apple have any idea what the actual iOS 9 adoption rates look like.

By analyzing the user agent strings of requests passing through the CloudFlare network, the Internet performance and security company was able to piece together a pretty good picture of iOS 9 uptake. They shared their results with AppleWorld.Today. (As CloudFlare oversees 5% of global Internet requests, the company has a good handle on how product launches like iOS 9 fare "in the wild.")

CloudFlare started seeing small amounts of iOS 9 usage before it was officially released, followed by a spike immediately after the launch. As of Sept. 21, the relative traffic of iOS 9 to iOS 8 on the CloudFlare...

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.

    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.

    AWT News Update: September 23, 2015

    A look at some apps, some localization fun, and a bad move on the part of Microsoft in today's news:

    • Apple starts notification of iPhone 6s shipments, days after the info has been available on the UPS website
    • iOS 9 includes at least one fun localization
    • Push Popcorn updates Records -- a "lite database" app for OS X -- to version 1.1
    • Want to make sure you don't go over your data limit? There's a Watch app for that
    • Microsoft makes a really dumb move

    The text version of this podcast is available below. The video version will return whenever Periscope fixes its app so it runs on an iPhone 6 Plus.

    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.

    On Wednesday, Apple released iOS 9.0.1. The update, a 34.2 megabyte download (or 1 gigabyte download from a pre-iOS 9.0 version), offers the following fixes and changes:

    – 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.

    – Fixes an issue where some users with a custom APN setup via a profile would lose cellular data.

    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.

    Notices for the new iPhones have started appearing, and Apple's hardware once again is being bathed in critical acclaim, with just a few cries of discontent here and there.
    The new capabilities in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus may appear underwhelming to some observers, but not to Walt Mossberg. "These are things that improve the quality of the phone while generally making a fluid, powerful product even better -- and faster and easier to navigate and use," he wrote. "They secure the iPhone's place as the best smartphone on the market."

    An amateurish dick measuring contest

    Samantha Bielefeld talking about The Verge:

    What I would like to see is the author not afraid to bite the hand that feeds, to confront the real issue here…the problem isn’t with there being advertising on the web driven by page impressions. 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.

    Great read.

    Apple Car Talk Starts Making Sense

Though a bit shy on verifiable details -- it cites unnamed people familiar with Apple's plans and vaguely refers to people inside Apple -- the report suggests the company will triple its current 600-person team to 1,800 people as it ramps up its car development effort, code-named "Titan." Previous Apple car reports have linked Apple's hiring of automobile experts to Titan, with some assuming Apple even poached Tesla employees.

    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...

    ∞ The Deck and ad tracking on The Loop

    I’ve been asked about ad tracking on The Loop quite a bit since iOS 9 and its content blockers were released. I use The Deck to serve ads on the site, and have for the last few years. Jim Coudal, the owner of The Deck, and I share a philosophy that ads should be unobtrusive and respectful to the reader.

    Here is The Deck’s official stance on ad tracking (spoiler: there is none):

    Short version. We don’t track our readers in any way or allow any other behind-the-scenes shenanigans. We just serve useful, relevant ads in a simple, unobtrusive way to support independent publishers. Please white-list The Deck when using ad blocking software. Thanks.

    We will never share your personal information obtained by tracking, either individually or in aggregate, with advertisers or any one else for one very good reason: we don’t have any.

    T-Mobile undercuts competition with $5-per-month...

    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.

The actual jabberd binary is also stored at /Applications/Server.app/Contents/ServerRoot/usr/libexec/jabberd, where there are a couple of perl scripts used to migrate the service between various versions as well.

    Setting up the Messages service is simple. Open the Server app and click on Messages in the Server app sidebar.

    Pixelmator releases iOS 9 update with multitasking...

    Pixelmator is hands-down one of the best image editing apps for both Mac and iOS. Today, the company released an update to Pixelmator for iOS (version 2.1, US$4.99) that provides support for many of the features built into iOS 9.

    To start with, the app now supports multitasking on iOS 9 through Split View and Slide Over on the iPad (see image and video above). There are also Open in Place and Save to Photos capabilities, but one of the big features is the ability for the app to open and edit 8K resolution images -- those images are up to 50 megapixels in size, but the app can handle them with ease on the iPad.

    With full iCloud support built into both Pixelmator for iOS 2.1 and Pixelmator for Mac, it's simple to move seamlessly between platforms when editing photos. You can start working on the Mac, then pick up work on the iPad...

At Georgia State University, we’re taking a fresh look at how to reach today’s students and give them the most valuable education we can. We are proud to serve an extremely diverse student body that comes to us with a wide range of knowledge and experiences.

    Take technology, for example. Some incoming students have been using specialized technologies for years, and others’ experience is limited to smartphone apps. We aim to not just bridge that technology gap, but also to prepare our students—all of our students—for...

    John Legere, the CEO of T-Mobile USA, announced yesterday that preorders for the iPhone 6s are 30 percent higher than what the carrier saw for the iPhone 6 last year. 

    Legere took to Twitter yesterday to announce the new special trade-in plan for folks who want to trade in an iPhone 6 and the a 6s for $5 a month, and threw out that interesting tidbit about preorders in one of the tweets. 

    Although Apple is -- as usual -- tight-lipped about the exact sales numbers for the newest iPhones, the two new phones are no longer available for launch-day delivery. 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.

    Manage the VPN Service in Mac OS X Server 5

    OS X Server has long had a VPN service that can be run. The server is capable of running the two most commonly used VPN protocols: PPTP and L2TP. The L2TP protocol is always in use, but the server can run both concurrently. You should use L2TP when at all possible.
    Sure, “All the great themes have been used up and turned into theme parks.” But security is a theme that it never hurts to keep in the forefront of your mind. If you were thinking of exposing the other services in OS X Server to the Internet without having users connect to a VPN service then you should think again, because the VPN service is simple to setup and even simpler to manage.

    Setting Up The VPN Service In OS X Server

    To setup the VPN service, open the Server app and click on VPN in the Server app sidebar. The VPN Settings  screen has two options available in the “Configure VPN for” field, which has two options:

    • L2TP: Enables only the L2TP protocol

    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.

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.

    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...

    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.

    How to set up the Workout app in watchOS 2

    ° 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.

    Using the serverinfo Command in OS X Server 5

    OS X Server 5 (for El Capitan and Yosemite)  comes with the /usr/sbin/serverinfo command (introduced in Mountain Lion Server). The serverinfo command is useful when programmatically obtaining information about the very basic state of an Apple Server.

    The first option indicates whether the Server app has been downloaded from the app store, which is the –software option:

    serverinfo --software

    When used, this option reports the following if the Server.app can be found:

    This system has server software installed.

    Or if the software cannot be found, the following is indicated:

    This system does NOT have server software installed.

    The –productname option determines the name of the software app:

    serverinfo --productname

    If you change the name of the app from Server then the server info command won’t work any longer, so the output should always be the following:

    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...

    Apple Notifying iPhone 6s Pre-Order Customers About...

    Apple has started sending emails to customers who may be affected by shipping delays caused by Pope Francis' visit to the United States, letting them know that they may not be able to receive their iPhone 6s and 6s pre-orders on launch day.

    Based on an image shared by Sam Biddle on Twitter, Apple is informing customers that while there may be delivery issues on Friday in restricted areas, Saturday deliveries will be available in most areas. Any customer in an affected area can expect to receive an email from Apple and from UPS or FedEX.

    As MacRumors reported over the weekend, Pope Francis will be visiting New York City and Philadelphia this week, with all of the major shipping companies planning to shut down deliveries in select areas during his visit. UPS, FedEX, and USPS will all be...

    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."

    Though the vast majority of advance iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus reviews spoke only superficially about the performance of Apple’s latest cameras, several reviewers have spotlighted major performance improvements over the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that weren’t obvious from Apple’s marketing materials. Much of the pre-release attention has been focused on Live Photos, […]

    Introducing availability of Office 365 Groups in...

    Last year, we introduced a new cross-suite service for Office 365 commercial and education customers called Office 365 Groups, which enables people to create public or private groups. The first apps to take advantage of the Office 365 Groups service include Outlook, OneDrive for Business, OneNote, Skype for Business, Power BI and Dynamics CRM. Yammer, Delve and Planner will also soon take advantage of this service.

    Along with today’s launch of Office 2016, we’re introducing Groups in Outlook 2016 and a new mobile app called Outlook Groups. These new capabilities offer a better way to get work done with others and offer a number of benefits compared to traditional distribution lists.

    In Outlook 2016, creating a group is easy and new colleagues can also join existing groups and quickly get up to speed. Each member of a group can participate in conversations, schedule meetings, share files...

    Small and midsized businesses—get ready for Office...

    The announcement today about the brand new Office 2016 desktop apps and admin resources is exciting—but what does it mean for admins in small to midsized businesses (SMBs)? Deploying the right technology can mean the difference between surviving and thriving for an SMB, but coordinating the timing of the deployment can also impact your day-to-day operation. This post provides you with what to expect now that Office 2016 has been released and what you need to do.

    The Office 2016 release for Office 365 introduces admins to a new model for managing and deploying regular updates. This model is primarily for larger enterprise customers and reduces the frequency of updates to every four months. For SMBs running Office 365 Business (the version of Office that comes with some Office 365 plans such as Business Premium), you...

    Troubleshooting Apache, Proxies, and Tomcat in OS X...

    OS X Server 5 dropped last week. It’s the first time I’ve seen an OS X Server version drop before an OS release. I’m guessing there was an impetus to get it out the door before OS X 10.11 ships, so that caching and software update servers can facilitate quicker adoption and tools like Profile Manager will work on 0-day. But, there are some funny issues that are popping up. One of these is OS X Server usurping some ports that would otherwise potentially be used by other tools. Notably for Casper administrators, this includes port 8443. So here are some issues I’ve seen with Apache in the latest OS X Server.

    Ports are in use that shouldn’t be

    This is of particular interest to people running Tomcat sites (e.g. Casper admins). If you have a 3rd party service that isn’t loading, you may find that a port is already in use. For example, let’s say that you’re trying to start a JSS on port 8443. Well, let’s say you run stroke and you see this (when the JSS is...

    Exploding Chip Could Thwart Cyberthieves

    Researchers at Xerox PARC have developed a self-destructing mechanism for microchips embedded on a hardened glass surface. The glass can self-destruct upon command and could be used to secure personal data such as health and banking records. It also can be used to destroy encryption keys stored on memory chips in standard consumer, enterprise and government electronic devices. The research is part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Vanishing Programmable Resources project.

    Live Photos Called 'Best New Feature,'...

    The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus include several new camera features that have been highly popular in reviews thus far, but there's also a fantastic update to the way photos are displayed on the two devices. With Live Photos, exclusive to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, a bit of motion is captured alongside each photo, enabling short animations that bring each image to life.

    To enable Live Photos, the iPhone captures 1.5 seconds before every picture is taken and 1.5 seconds afterwards. The motion is then displayed whenever a 3D Touch force press is used on a photo, activating the animation to add a bit of context.

    With iPhone 6s reviews coming out today, we've learned several interesting details about the Live Photos feature, including some negative aspects that Apple's working to improve. We're also able to get an in-depth look at what the reviewers thought of the feature, giving us an idea of...

    Apple to Alert Users Who Installed Apps Compromised...

    Apple has added an XcodeGhost question and answer page to its Chinese website today that explains what the malware is, how some users may be affected and next steps the company is taking to ensure that developers and end users alike are protected against malicious software going forward.

    Apple claims that it has no evidence to suggest that XcodeGhost has been used for anything malicious, such as the transmission of personally identifiable information, stipulating that the code is only able to deliver some general information about apps and system information.

    Nevertheless, Apple says it is working closely with developers and will soon list the top 25 most popular apps impacted by XcodeGhost on its Chinese website. The company will also be alerting users to let them know if they have downloaded apps that could have been...

    PowerPoint for Mac, via Microsoft

    For a lot of people in the corporate world, there's no option -- you have to use Microsoft Office. Well, Microsoft has made that a bit easier to swallow with the announcement today that Office 2016 for Mac is finally available as a one-time $149.99 purchase that does not require a subscription to Office 365. The Office Home & Student 2016 edition comes with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote for Mac and can be used on one Mac in a home. 

    Requiring OS X Yosemite or later, the standalone version provides offline storage and 15GB of OneDrive cloud storage. It does not come with Outlook, Publisher, Access, tablet or phone support, or the instant updates and technical support that are included in the Office 365 version. 

    For $80 more, Office Home & Business 2016 adds Outlook, but that's it. The subscription-based Office 365 Personal costs $69....

    Apple XcodeGhost Malware More Malicious Than...

    An anonymous reader writes: Details were scant when Apple confirmed the XcodeGhost malware had infiltrated the iOS App Store. The company didn't say which specific iOS vulnerabilities were exposed and didn't indicate how its iPhone users were affected. However, a Palo Alto Networks security analyst is reporting that XcodeGhost had been used to phish for iCloud passwords, and more specific details are emerging. According to the Networkworld article: "URLs can be sent to the iOS device and opened. This isn't limited to HTTP and FTP URLs, but includes local URLs, such as itunes:// and twitter:// that iOS can be used for inter-app communications. For example, this could be used to force automatic phone calls to premium phone numbers, which can charge up to $1 per minute in some cases. Some iOS password manager apps use the system clipboard to paste passwords into the login dialog. As another example, the XcodeGhost malware can read and write data in the user's clipboard, which would...

    What's inside the new Apple TV? iFixit tears...

    Whenever Apple releases new hardware, you can count on the folks at iFixit to grab a unit, take it apart, and post pictures for all of us to see. And they’re at it again, this time postings a complete teardown of the new Apple TV.

    The Apple TV that iFixit took apart had 32GB of memory permanently attached to the logic board. There isn’t a way to easily upgrade the device with more memory. (Apple sells a 64GB Apple TV for $199). The heat sink inside the Apple TV is huge; the device uses more power than the previous model.

    iFixit also took apart the Apple TV’s remote control. The rechargeable battery is soldered to the remote’s Lightning port, so it’ll be interesting to see what Apple does when the batteries dies. Will the company require you to turn in the remote for battery replacement, or will it simply give you a new remote?

    Promote an Open Directory Master in OS X Server 5

    Open Directory has never been so easy to setup for a basic environment as it is in OS X Server 5 (for OS X 10.11 El Capitan and OS X 10.10 Yosemite). It’s also never been so annoyingly simple to use that to do anything cool requires a bunch of command line foo. No offense to the developers, but this whole idea that the screens that were being continually refined for a decade just need to be thrown out and started fresh seems to have led to a few babies thrown out along with them. Not often as I’m kinda’ digging most of the new config screens in OS X Server 5, but with Open Directory, it’s just too easy. Features mean buttons. Buttons make things a tad bit more complicated to use than an ON/OFF switch…

    Anyway, rant over. Moving on. As with almost any previous version of OS X Server and Open Directory, once you’ve installed the Server app, run the changeip command along with the -checkhostname option to verify that the IP, DNS and hostname match. If (and only if as it will...

    Validating Xcode to Eradicate XcodeGhost

    The news has been full of concern about XcodeGhost, a counterfeit version of Apple's Xcode development environment that injected malicious code into apps created with it. As a result, Apple had to remove over 5,000 from App Stores around the world. 

    Today, the company sent an email to developers reminding them to download Xcode directly from the Mac App Store or the Apple Developer website, and to also leave Gatekeeper enabled on all systems to protect against tampered software. 

    In a developer note, Apple also provided a method of verifying the installed version of Xcode as genuine. It's easy enough; launch Terminal, and then type in the following command:

    spctl --assess --verbose /Applications/Xcode.app

    For developers who have installed Xcode in another directory,...
