Facebook now plays songs from Apple Music and...

Earlier this year, we dispelled the rumors that Facebook might be building its own music streaming service. Now we have more details about a partnership—not a rivalry—that has been in the works.

On Thursday, Facebook announced Music Stories, a new feature that lets Facebook users share a 30-second song clip from Apple Music or Spotify directly in their News Feeds using the Facebook iOS app. Now any song clip you share from those streaming services will generate a playable widget with album art and a link to listen to the full track on Apple Music or Spotify.

Apple TV gets categories, folder code found in tvOS

When reviews of the fourth-generation Apple TV appeared last week, one common complaint was how hard it was to search for apps on the tvOS App Store. Apple yesterday took a big step towards making discovery of apps a lot easier by adding categories to the App Store. 

As of yesterday afternoon, those categories were limited to "Games" and "Entertainment", and only in the US. Earlier this week, Top Charts appeared on the Apple TV App Store -- that feature is also limited to the US App Store at this point. 

Like iOS, it appears that future support for folders in tvOS is baked into the code. Developer Steve Troughton-Smith disclosed this in a tweet after going through the OS code:

Fun fact: HeadBoard, the tvOS UI, has pretty complete folder support inside. Looks like it would work like iOS - drop an app on another app

Flickr has announced a major upgrade to its mobile photo app to take advantage of two of iOS 9’s headline features: 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and the augmented Spotlight search function, according to a blog post by Flickr Community Manager Matthew Roth.

Support for 3D Touch on Apple’s newest phones enables Quick Actions—designed to save numerous taps and swipes—letting you preview photos, people, notifications and more with a light press on the screen. Pressing the app icon lets you upload a photo or go directly to notifications or the feed or initiate a search from your home screen.

In addition to Walgreens turning on support for its Balance Rewards card through Apple Pay, Kohl’s recently became the first retailer to enable its store credit card for use with Apple Pay. Apple also added more than 50 banks to work with Apple Pay this week.

Apple goes country with Kenny Chesney in Apple Music...

Ads for Apple devices and Apple Music often aim at an urban audience, but a new TV ad for Apple Music features country artist Kenny Chesney preparing for a concert at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts as part of his "No Shoes Nation" tour. 

The ad, which premiered Wednesday night during the Country Music Association Awards, follows Chesney through a show day routine -- preparing a "Show Day" playlist and working out at a gym, looking at his progress with an Apple Watch. 

In the one-minute ad, Chesney provides a voiceover in which he touts Apple Music as a streaming music service where "music is treated with a real reverence and respect." Previous Apple Music ads have focused on artists from a number of musical genres, such as U2, Flo Morrissey, Mary J. Blige, and more.

Apple Watch sales estimate: 7 million after six...

Officially, Apple won’t say how many smartwatches it’s sold. But unofficially, the Apple Watch is already leaving the competition in the dust.

According to market research firm Canalys, the Apple Watch has shipped nearly 7 million units in its first two quarters of availability, with shipments steadily increasing. We can therefore assume that at least 3.5 million Apple Watches shipped last quarter, and probably more.

By comparison, Canalys claims that no other smartwatch maker shipped more than 300,000 units last quarter. The firm specifically calls out Pebble as having shipped a mere 200,000 watches (though in fairness the company struggled with manufacturing issues as it tried to fulfill Kickstarter orders.)

When in doubt, go with an outside supplier for help.

Apple has apparently placed LCD display driver orders with touchscreen supplier Synaptics for its next-generation iPhones, indicating the company’s in-house development of touch and display driver integration (TDDI) chips may have fallen behind schedule.

Synaptics acquired Renesas SP Drivers, reportedly the sole supplier of LCD driver ICs for iPhones, in September 2014 in an effort to maintain orders from Apple, and for now it appears the iPhone maker will remain one of its customers. The supplier also works with Google, HTC, Microsoft, Samsung, Sony and other smartphone makers.

Walgreens Balance Rewards members can now use their account through Apple Pay without separately scanning a Balance Rewards card or barcode. More than 85 million active Balance Rewards members will have the ability to earn and redeem loyalty points via Apple Pay, the easy, secure and private way to pay, says Sona Chawla, president of digital and chief marketing officer for Walgreens.

With they Apple Watch, you can just double-click the side button, select your Balance Rewards card, and hold the face of Apple Watch up to the reader.

Apple, Microsoft and Google are among the corporations awarded an “A” for their efforts to reduce heat-trapping emissions, according to a global ranking that grades corporations according to their environmental credentials.

That report is from the nonprofit CDP. Nearly 2,000 companies submitted information to be independently assessed against CDP’s scoring methodology; 113 have made the list, which features brands from around the world such as, Apple, Microsoft and Google, the three largest by market capitalization.

The CDP data shows “significant improvements” in corporate management of climate change. The group says governance is improving, with a higher percentage of companies allocating responsibility for climate issues to the board or to senior management (from 80 percent to 94 percent of respondents). And more companies are incentivizing employees through financial and non-...

An Apple patent hints that Apple is considering a...

On Tuesday Apple World Today reported that Apple had been granted a patent by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for “accessing digital media.” It allows for movies, music, photos, and more to be shared across a network. Now the company has been granted a patent (number 20150319206) for “sharing a media station,” which sounds like a competitor to Plex. Alex is a solution that organizes your video, music, and photo collections and streams them to all of your screens.

Online media stations allow uses to stream media items such as music, videos, and photos from any computing device with a network connection. A user may wish to share media stations with friends, however current systems are limited in their functionality, according to Apple. The company thinks it can do better.

According to the patent, a user can share a...

In the meantime, the advice in Joe Kissell’s “Take Control of Security for Mac Users” may be your best defense.

Apple already supports Touch ID on the iPhone and iPad. However, the company is investigating a safety feature that would let you use a designated finger or thumb to active a “panic mode.” Apple has filed for a patent (number 20150319294) with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for such technology 

According to the patent, a fingerprint authentication technique would unlock your mobile phone and activate customized functions. You could control access to one or more iPhone functions by pressing your finger to a fingerprint sensor. The iPhone may be unlocked using a designated finger that activates a panic mode of operation. Personal data stored on the device wouldn’t accessible or viewable to during his mode. The patent would also allow you to register particular fingerprints to be associated with different modes of operation and activate the different modes based on the particular fingerprints.

The USPTO has today published a patent application by Apple to allow a specific fingerprint to activate a ‘panic mode’ on an iPhone, designed for use when the owner feels threatened, is in danger or is being forced to unlock their phone.

In its most basic form, placing a specific finger on the Touch ID button would place the iPhone into a special locked-down mode, blocking access to personal data store on the phone – perhaps simulating a brand new phone. In that way, if a street robber forced you to unlock your phone before handing it over, your data would be safe.

iResizer for Mac OS X makes it a breeze to resize...

If you want to resize your JPEG images for the best web performance or create thumbnails for an image gallery check out iResizer for Mac OS X (10.7 or higher). It scales an image without changing important visual content such as people, buildings and animals — and avoids distortion of the important parts of the image.

iResizer is easy to use. Load the image you want to resize. Make a rough selection around the area you don't want to be affected when you resize the image. You can also, if you wish, make a selection around the content you want to discard (discard masks are ignored when enlarging an image). 

You can mark important elements in the image using the green marker. This technique is handy if you have areas of the image that you want to retain at the expense of other areas. You can use the red marker to select which features of the image should be discarded. Press the Smart Resize button. iResizer users "...

Gaming on the Apple TV: Why a gamepad isn't as...

As of last Friday, Apple finally has its own game console of sorts—we’re ignoring the Pippin, just like everyone else did—and there are some early victories with the new Apple TV. You’ll find several interesting games out already across a nice spectrum of price points and genres, including some games designed specifically for TV. And if you already play games on your iPhone or iPad, chances are you already own a few of them thanks to universal apps. 

But there are irritations, as well. Due to developer storage restrictions, some games make you wait for levels and content to download mid-game—Asphalt 8: Airborne has it the worst of the early crop. And pressingly, some games ported over from iOS just don’t play very well with the Siri Remote.

Google today has rolled out an update its Maps application on iOS, bringing with it a pair of new features. The update bumps the app to version 4.12.0 and includes support for adding missing businesses to the app’s database and spoken traffic alerts.

The latter of the two is the far more interesting addition of this update. Spoken traffic alerts mean that Google Maps will now alert you about upcoming traffic congestion and traffic incidents as you use the Navigation feature of the app. It does so via voice so you aren’t distracted while you drive. Traffic descriptions provide the same information, but in both text and verbal forms before you start to move.

Google Maps version 4.12.0 is available via the App Store now for free. The full changelog can be seen below:

According to the Canalys research group as now shipped nearly seven million smart watches since launch, a figure in excess of all other vendors’ combined shipments over the previous five quarters. In the third quarter Apple was the only smart watch vendor to ship more than 300,000 units. 

The quarter also saw the release of the Pebble Time Steel, which helped the company ship more than 200,000 total smart watches, while Samsung’s Gear shipments declined ahead of the fourth quarter (Q4) release of the Gear S2. Canalys says vendors will continue to battle for position behind Apple in Q4 as new devices from a diverse set of companies hits the market. 

For example, both Fossil and Tag Heuer will be launching their first smart watches before the end of the year. Still, all eyes will be on Apple Watch sales during the Q4 holiday quarter as a barometer of the strength of the nascent smart watch market...

Our new RSS feed link is: or you can just click that nice "AWT blue" RSS feed that's right below the line of social media buttons to the right. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that today's change makes things more stable for our RSS-using friends in the future.

Apple eyes new San Jose campus possibly sprawling...

Apple is working with the city of San Jose on a development agreement for a campus on the north side of town, which if authorized could be larger than Cupertino's Campus 2 at 4.15 million square feet, a report said on Wednesday.

Apple looking into potential 4.15 million square...

You can do a lot with 4.15 million square feet.

Or at least that’s what Apple might be up to given its inquiry into a campus north of San Jose. The new structure, if completed, would be larger than the “spaceship” campus Apple has underway.

The draft agreement between Apple Inc. and the city of San Jose, which is not yet completed, will come before the city’s Planning Commission later this month, officials said. It would lock in development rights — and expectations for both sides — for the next 15 years in an area that sprawls across 86 acres north of Highway 101 across from the Mineta San Jose International Airport.

Apple looks to build 4.15 million square foot campus...

Hmmm, how big is this Apple thing gonna get? The Silicon Valley Business Journal reports that Apple and the city of San Jose, California, are working toward a development agreement that would allow the Cupertino-based juggernaut to build a north San Jose campus of up to 4.15 million square feet, according to city records. That would be bigger than Apple’s “spaceship” campus, which is under construction in Cupertino.

The draft agreement, which hasn’t been completed, will come before the city’s Planning Commission later this month, officials said. It would lock in development rights — and expectations for both sides — for the next 15 years in an area that sprawls across 86 acres north of Highway 101 across from the Mineta San Jose International Airport, according to The Silicon Valley Business Journal.

This is the latest development in Apple’s apparently never-ending...

Canalys: Apple has shipped nearly 7 million Watches...

A new report from analytics firm Canalys claims that Apple has shipped nearly 7 million Apple Watches since the device debuted earlier this year. That number puts Apple’s shipments ahead of every other smart watch maker on the market combined.

No other vendor even managed to ship 300,000 units, according to the report, with the Pebble shipping over 200,000 thanks to the boost from the recently released Pebble Time Steel. Korean competitor Samsung...

Apple looks to build 4.15 million square foot campus...

As construction continues on Apple’s new Campus, the company is considering expanding its operation to a new, even larger 4.15 million square foot facility in San Jose, according to a new report.

The tech company is currently seeking an agreement with the city that would allow it to develop the massive lot for a new campus, though actually getting such an agreement would not necessarily guarantee that Apple would begin construction.

Facebook reportedly launching News-like app ‘Notify...

Facebook is said to be planning to launch its standalone news app with a list of media partners on board sometime next week. That’s according to Financial Times, which reports the app will be called Notify and include content from a list of media partners including CBS, The Washington Post, and Vogue. Reports of Facebook working on a separate mobile app focused on news rather than the social network first surfaced in early August.

The news comes just as Facebook announced today in its earnings report that it’s currently serving...

What Joanna Hoffman told Kate Winslet while shooting...

Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle’s new Steve Jobs film is far from perfect (or even completely accurate), but at least one member of the original Mac team is happy with how she was portrayed.

“I can’t complain [Kate Winslet] was the one playing me,” said Joanna Hoffman when asked about her portrayal in the film. “We really hit it off.”

The former Mac marketing executive talked about meeting Winslet during a Monday night panel in Palo Alto, California. The panel featured powerful women who had worked with Steve Jobs, including Susan Barnes, Barbara Kaolkin Barza, Debi Coleman, and Andy Cunningham, who is also depicted in the Steve Jobs film. The event was organized by Cunningham’s marketing consultancy, Cunningham Collective, and journalist Katie Hafner served as the...

Google Drive for iOS gets improved sharing...

Google Drive updates arriving today include new features for the service’s iOS app including sharing notifications and what Google promises will be a ‘consistent sharing experience across platforms.”

As part of its Drive mobile app updates today, both users of the iOS and Android apps can now enable notifications for when files are shared with them. Not only is it a notification, but it also acts as a quick link to jump right into the file or folder. And in addition, Google notes that “If a file/folder owner has notifications turned on and someone requests access to their content, the owner will be notified of the request instantly on their mobile device so they can quickly grant access.”

Another feature in the update for the Google Drive iOS app is what Google describes as a new consistent sharing...

Windows Insiders can beta test Cortana for iOS

Users of Microsoft Windows 10 and Windows smartphones know that Cortana is actually a pretty good personal digital assistant. Like Siri on iOS, Cortana helps search devices, the cloud or the web for files or information, sets up reminders, and does other tasks at your command. Well, Microsoft yesterday opened up Cortana for iOS to a beta program, which means that the assistant will be coming to your iPhones and iPads soon.

The beta test is only open to members of the Windows Insiders program, and only in the US and China. If you meet the criteria, you just need to take a short online survey and if selected, you'll be onboarded into the testing in the next few weeks. Microsoft forum moderator Syed N notes that some features, "like saying 'Hey, Cortana' to wake her up", won't be available on iOS....

Podcast 481: Binge-watching the new Apple TV

Nothing spoils a fun activity like watching TV like dissecting it endlessly in a review and then on a podcast, but that’s exactly what we did, because it’s our jobs and because we love you. In other words, the Apple TV is out, and Glenn and Susie have a lot to talk about, from our text-input frustrations to our favorite apps, and how we chose which size to buy.

Of course, Glenn just has to tell us more about his fiber Internet, and how it’s affecting his choice of cloud backup services. Everyone loves a good backup story. Enjoy!

Feature Request: Airbnb’s Apple TV app is perfect...

Feature Request is a new regular 9to5Mac series where authors offer their opinion on how to improve popular hardware or software products.

A lot of the apps on the new Apple TV bring similar experiences as on iOS to the big screen, but we’re bound to see some unique apps designed specifically for the living room that perhaps didn’t make a lot of sense on smaller or mobile devices. One example of this and my first Feature Request: Airbnb should add a concierge-style experience for guests through its new Apple TV app.

Think about the concierge-style software on TVs at most hotels. Typically these systems give guests access to hotel information (room service, attractions, maps, restaurant hours, etc), content like paid movies, and sometimes access to car services and more...

Apple Watch debut helps sales of many wearables

It's said that a rising tide raises all ships, and that old saying is perfectly apt in the wearables market. Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky told CNBC that the Apple Watch appears to be bringing increased consumer awareness to the entire wearables space, with his company now selling twice the number of smartwatches than it was at this time last year.

Earlier this week, Fitbit CEO James Park made similar comments, saying that the Apple Watch had "no material impact" on the company's sales of fitness trackers. Fitbit's revenues rose 168 percent year over year to $409.3 million, and Park told investors that his company and Apple serve "two very different segments of the market." 

Many people believed that Apple's entry into the wearables market with the Apple Watch would cause harm to other companies, but that definitely doesn't appear to be the case....

When you update a piece of technology after leaving it essentially untouched for three years, the changes are bound to be big.

That’s certainly true for the fourth-generation Apple TV, the first significant update to Apple’s “hobby” project since early 2012. Where the old box was more limited and appliance-like, the new one runs its own distinct (albeit iOS-based) operating system and includes its own App Store for consumers and SDK for developers.

So for the second time this year, we find...

NewsON app brings you local TV... if you happen to...

This morning brought news of a new news app... 

NewsON is designed to give iOS users live and on-demand local newscasts and news clips. The free app launched today and is a joint venture of six of the largest TV station groups in the US -- ABC Owned Television Station Group, Cox Media Group, Hearst Television, Media General, Hubbard Broadcasting and Raycom Media. 

The idea of the app is that it can identify where you are and bring up your local TV station feed; both real-time and in archived clips. There's also an interactive map of the US showing all of the stations that are broadcasting, currently 118 in 90 markets that cover about 75% of the country.

In this new beta, users will find the ability to take advantage of AT&T’s NumberSync offering, which allows other devices such as a Mac or iPad to make and receive phone calls using a customer’s iPhone number without actually being connected to the phone.

The new beta is available from the Software Update section of the...

"Jimmy Wales September 2015" by cellanr - . Licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0 via Commons

Wikipedia's founder Jimmy Wales can be rather outspoken at times when it comes to the subject of personal privacy, and his latest public statement is classic. Wales tweeted his distaste for the Investigatory Powers Bill introduced in Parliament today, which would completely ban the type of end-to-end encryption that Apple builds into the iPhone, iMessage, and FaceTime. The Independent reported on Wales' tweet (embedded below).

The bill would basically require all technology and Internet companies to give the UK government any data...

Marc Newson, a close friend to Jony Ive and famed designer himself, spoke recently to the Australian Financial Review about the reaction to the Apple Watch so far.

“As far as I’m aware, it’s been enormously successful however you gauge it. The point is, it’s the beginning of something. I think people, consumers or analysts, whoever, are so impatient. Everyone wants immediate, instant recognition, instant understanding,” he said.

Apple hasn’t disclosed Apple Watch sales to date, Tim Cook citing competitive reasons, but analysts ball parked numbers around 3.95 million last quarter. Newson suggests Apple Watch will reach iPhone levels within five...

Security firm FireEye stated via a blog post that a variant of the XcodeGhost code, which has been known to inject malware into genuine apps, is still out there. The firm stated that it has identified a more advanced version of the compromised app development tool, XcodeGhost S, which has been designed to infect iOS 9 apps and allow compromised apps to escape detection by Apple.

The company offered the following statement:

The researchers analyzed 55 of the most popular apps from each market and found that a significant percentage of them regularly provided Google, Apple, and other third parties with user e-mail addresses, names, and physical locations. On average, Android...

Rumor: iPhone 7 to feature 3 GB of RAM, A10 processor

Now that you’ve gotten used to your iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, why not begin talking about the iPhone 7?

Respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has stated that the next-gen iPhone 7 will be boosted to 3 gigabytes of RAM as well as an A10 processor.

Kuo’s latest details from Apple suppliers were published in a research note Tuesday evening. In it, he revealed that while the 4.7-inch “iPhone 7” is expected to have the same 2 gigabytes of RAM as the iPhone 6s, the larger “iPhone 7 Plus” will add another gigabyte for even greater performance.

The iPhone 6 Plus presently features 1GB of RAM, while the iPhone 6s Plus doubles that to 2GB, but Apple is expected to add...

DAR Software's Docs & Works makes iOS...

There are a lot of apps in the Business category of the App Store that claim to be perfect for filling out and signing documents on the iPhone and iPad, and many of them seem to lack certain capabilities so you end up having multiple apps to do one job. A new app from DAR Software called Docs & Works (US$9.99, but available today for just $5.99) seems to have all bases covered as a single powerful way to scan, fill, and sign documents.

Docs & Works has one tool that I just love, and that's support for multiple handwritten signatures that can be saved for future use and synchronized via iCloud. The app can also automatically insert a signing date in a document, a handy feature when filling out a lot of forms in a short period of time.

Check out these screenshots of Docs & Works in action. Use the forward and back arrow to move through the gallery.

How Apple Is Preventing the Apple TV From Becoming a...

An anonymous reader writes: Apple's new set top box is on sale now, and has launched with several high profile games in the new tvOS App Store, including Guitar Hero Live and PS4 hit Transistor. However, as one writer points out, the Apple TV is still not an adequate console replacement, and it's not because of the graphics. Instead, several software issues and restrictions issued by Apple itself prevent developers from creating blockbuster exclusives for the platform, including the requirement that all games be playable using the bundled remote, lack of support for four players, and the 200MB initial app download limit. If these remain in place, can the Apple TV become a viable games platform, where the Ouya and PlayStation TV have failed before?
