Sprint responds to T-Mobile’s upgrade plan, offers...

The carrier wars are certainly heating up. On Wednesday, T-Mobile announced an iPhone upgrade plan that would allow customers to get a brand-new iPhone 6s for as little as $5 per month. Not to be outdone, Sprint responded on Thursday with an even better offer—get a 16GB iPhone 6s for $1 per month, if you trade in your old iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. 

This deal is part of Sprint’s iPhone Forever program, which allows eligible Sprint customers to trade in their old iPhone as soon as the next model is available. It previously started at $15 per month, on top of your standard cell phone plan.

The Rich Get Internet-Richer While the Poor Get None

Efforts to increase Internet access worldwide are falling short of targeted goals, according to a United Nations Broadband Commission report released earlier this week.
More than half the world's population is still offline, according to the report, and growth in the number of people with access to the Internet is slowing. The digital divide has become a chasm. Internet access in rich economies is reaching saturation levels, while about 90 percent of the people in the 48 poorest countries have none, the report notes.

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.”

Tomorrow's the launch day of the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and millions of people will be getting their hands on the latest tech from Apple. 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. If Gazelle doesn't have the particular model you want -- say, the 128GB iPhone 6 Plus in gold -- you can pre-order it and they'll ship it to you when it arrives in 2 - 3 weeks (they're expecting a lot of...

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...

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...

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...

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.

I understand people are...

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.

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...

T-Mobile's "Un-CEO" John Legere says...

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. Carrier stores and some third-party resellers...

More users, more ads: Instagram hits 400 million...

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.

If paying US$7 a month or US$70 a year for an Office 365 subscription to use Office 2016 for Mac isn’t your thing, you can now buy the thing outright.

Microsoft is now offering the Home & Student edition for a one-time fee of US$150, and limits users to one Mac and 15 gigabytes of OneDrive cloud storage, versus the 1 terabyte assigned to 365 subscribers. Users can’t fully unlock the mobile version of Office, and lack other perks like free tech support and Skype minutes.

The Home and Business edition retails for US$230 and includes Outlook.

T-Mobile offers a 16GB iPhone 6s for $5 a month with...

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...

Fifty-one of Apple Pay users are "extremely satisfied," compared to 32 percent of contactless card users who said the same, according to new data from eDigitalResearch. The research group's study shows that over a third (40 percent) of shoppers who have an Apple device have used Apple Pay to pay for goods or services

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. 

According to the UK Card Association during the first half of 2015 customers spent £2.5 billion (approximately US$3.8 billion) in contactless payments meaning that with the rise of spending limits, the UK could be set to start making more contactless payments in the near...

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

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...
