Apple denies reports that HomeKit is delayed

UPDATE 1:14 p.m.— Apple reached out with a statement, denying Fortune's report. An Apple spokesperson said, "HomeKit has been available for just a few months and we already have dozens of partners who have committed to bringing HomeKit accessories to market and we’re looking forward to the first ones coming next month."

HomeKit was announced at WWDC 2014 as being part of iOS 8. And, yes, it’s currently a software framework for iOS 8 app developers—that much is true. But you and I haven’t been able to use HomeKit yet. I saw plenty of HomeKit devices at CES this past January, but most haven’t made it to market, and the ones that...

News: Report: Apple pushes HomeKit launch to fall

Apple has delayed the launch of its HomeKit home automation platform until the fall, Fortune reports. Originally expected to arrive in May or June, sources participating in the program have revealed that the launch date has been moved back to “something closer to late August or September.” While Apple has not formally announced a launch date, several HomeKit partners had suggested at CES that products could be expected this spring, with…

Apple has filed a formal objection with a U.S. bankruptcy court to prevent the transfer of customer information as part of RadioShack’s auctioned-off assets, according to a new report from the Dallas Business Journal. In its filing, Apple claims that a reseller agreement it had in place with RadioShack prohibits the company from selling information specific to Apple’s customers, and further claims that such information does not “fall…

Johnson, this lively evening will feature a number of special guests from back in the day, including former solidThinking developer and current VP of Tools at Pixar Guido Quaroni, ur-NeXTSTEP developer Andy Stone, and several others too shy to let us give out their names (some of whom might work at a local fruit company).

How to enable a passcode on the Apple Watch

Similar to the iPhone and iPad, Apple provides a way to add a passcode to your Watch to secure it from prying eyes. Adding a passcode to your Watch is optional, unless you're enabling Apple Pay, which requires a passcode to protect your financial data in case of theft or loss. Read on to find out how to enable, disable or change the password on your Apple Watch.

Enabling a passcode

During setup, the Watch will prompt you to enter a passcode. If you skipped this option during the initial configuration, you can enable it after the fact through the settings on the Apple Watch or in the Watch app on the iPhone.

On the Apple Watch, tap the Settings icon on the home screen, scroll down until you see Passcode. Tap Passcode > Change Passcode and then follow the on-screen prompts to enter and confirm a new 4-digit passcode.

You also can open the Apple Watch app on the...

Apple may give social networking another shot with...

Remember Ping? Probably not, but the music-based social network Apple tried in 2010 might be making a comeback as part of the company's Beats Music reboot.

Musicians will be able to create their own pages within the service, which will possibly be renamed Apple Music, 9to5Mac reported. Artists can use those pages to share new music, tour dates, and more with fans, according to the unconfirmed report. Musicians will also allegedly be able to promote other artists on their pages, so if Jay-Z wants his fans to support Beyoncé, he can encourage them to do so.

Apple steps into Radio Shack sale to protect its...

The bidding for RadioShack's brand name and customer data has concluded with the hedge fund Standard General as the top bidder. However, Apple has stepped in to say its customer data may not be a part of that sale. 

Apple alleges that, in order to become a retail partner, RadioShack waived rights to data of customers who bought Apple products that the store sold, like iPhones and iPods. Apple's filing reads, in part: 

"In order to protect its customers' personal information, Apple oversees the collection and use of customer information collected by its retail partners, including RadioShack. The reseller agreement between Apple and RadioShack protects information collected by RadioShack regarding purchasers of Apple products and prohibits the proposed sale of such information."

Rumor: 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro shipping times...

It’s the shipping times that tend to give away when a new product is in the works.

Over the past several weeks, the shipping times for Apple’s 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro have increased, jumping from one to two weeks and then to two to three weeks.

With the Worldwide Developers Conference taking place next month and Apple typically announcing new products at this event, Intel’s current Broadwell chip is rumored to be in short supply. As a result, it’s unknown as to whether Apple will refresh the 15-inch notebook, which was last updated in the summer of 2014.

Even with supply constraints, Intel has started shipping a...

This may be something that’ll need to be fixed in a near-term firmware update.

A new video has shown that the Apple Watch’s wrist-detection, which is designed to ask for your passcode if the wearable is removed from your wrist. The iDownloadBlog video demonstrates how the Apple Watch can be reset without having to enter the passcode, then paired with any other iPhone.

iPhones are protected by Activation Lock, which means that even if a thief performs a hard reset of the phone, it cannot be reactivated without the original owner’s Apple ID and password. The Apple Watch, however, has no such protection, and does not require a passcode to wipe it....

Apple Watch’s security features protect data but won...

When you first set up the Apple Watch, it asks you to assign the device a security passcode to stop just anyone from picking up your watch and looking at all the stuff on it. While that passcode is an effective tool to protect your data, it does nothing to stop someone from lifting your watch, resetting it, and using it themselves or selling it.

As detailed in a post on iDownloadblog, it's dead simple to find the Watch OS reset option without unlocking the device. Long-press the side button to bring up the power menu, then Force Touch that menu to find the "erase all content and settings" button. Once you've done that, pairing the watch to a new phone works exactly the same way as it did when you took the watch out of the box.

There are also ways to erase all the data on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch without bypassing the lock...

Apple Watch security concerns

Writing for iDownloadBlog, Jeff Benjamin notes:

"Unlike the iPhone, if someone steals your Apple Watch, they can easily reset the device (bypass the passcode), and pair it with a new iPhone logged in to a different iCloud account. In other words, it’s totally feasible to steal an Apple Watch and set it up on a different device as if you just purchased it from an Apple Store."

Jeff later goes on to note, "It's not a security problem from a user data standpoint, but it is a security issue from a device theft standpoint," and that's certainly true. Your data lives on your iPhone, so pairing an Apple Watch to another iPhone or iCloud account won't put your data in jeopardy. That's cold comfort when your  Watch is gone, though. I wonder if Apple will institute an activation lock for Apple Watch in the future.

In the meantime, add a passcode to your Apple Watch.

6 iTunes problems Apple needs to fix

It’s probably fair to say that iTunes is the Apple app that people love to hate. Lots of people use it—more than any other Apple app, since it’s the repository for music and video collections, the tool many people use to sync media and apps to their iOS devices, and the gateway to the iTunes Store on computers.

iTunes tries to do a lot, and many people like to use the word “bloated” when discussing the software. (I disagree with that term.) But it’s true that there are a lot of things in iTunes that don’t work well, or don’t work as they should. I’ve been looking closely at iTunes in recent months, and on my website Kirkville, I’ve been writing a series of articles about how I think Apple should fix iTunes. (I should note that, since I began the series, Apple has fixed two of the problems I pointed out.)

Facebook Introduces Instant Articles

Michael Reckhow, Facebook product manager:

As more people get their news on mobile devices, we want to make
the experience faster and richer on Facebook. People share a lot
of articles on Facebook, particularly on our mobile app. To date,
however, these stories take an average of eight seconds to load,
by far the slowest single content type on Facebook. Instant
Articles makes the reading experience as much as ten times faster
than standard mobile web articles.

A few thoughts:

  • This looks beautiful. Clearly it’s built by the team that did Facebook Paper, with things like the way you tilt the phone to pan around large photos. The knock against Paper is that it only “works” if your friends and family post beautiful, well-crafted content to their Facebook feeds, and, well, that’s not the case for most people.

There's a fear common to anyone who owns an Apple Watch -- the fear of scratching that beautiful little device by unexpectedly bumping it into something.

I had an opportunity to try out the CandyShell FIT, which will ship later this month in a variety of colors. This little case comes in sizes for both the 38mm and 42mm Watches, and features the same dual-layer design that is common to Speck's CandyShell cases for iPhone. Inside the hard outside shell is a soft silicone layer. The shell protects the watch from impacts while the silicone softens the blow. Should your wrist accidentally slam into something hard like the side of a table or car door, the 1.5mm raised bezel reduces the chance that the Force Touch display of the Watch will get...

New betas are out for Yosemite as well as iOS 8.4, so we discuss how to get an early peek at the next iterations of Apple’s operating systems—and if you’re better off waiting for the final versions.

Glenn wrote a great piece about living with the new single-port 12-inch MacBook, and his quest to find the best adapter mix for the most people. (Don’t worry—you won’t have to try as many as he did!) He’s been leaning on the MacBook a ton, actually, because his other computers have been giving him huge amounts of...

Facebook Instant Articles quickly bring news to one...

Facebook wants to be your one-stop shop for news, with the introduction yesterday of Instant Articles, a way for publishers to get interactive articles to readers instantly.

Facebook responded to complaints from publishers that it was taking too long for shared stories to appear on mobile devices -- smartphones in particular -- by working with those companies to create a platform that brings photos, videos, and text to readers in no time at all.

Instant Articles also provides those who are viewing the content on mobile phones with some interactive features that are quite compelling: auto-play videos show up as you scroll through a story, maps can show where a photo was taken, and audio captions provide the background behind a photo or story. Readers can like or comment on small segments of a story in-line.

For publishers, Instant Articles are providing new ways to monetize content. Publishers have...

The Week in iOS Accessories: Even more Apple Watch...

Even more Apple Watch stands

We wonder if the Apple Watch will be the first mainstream product accessorized mostly through crowdfunding efforts. Probably not, but this week’s roundup shows why we’re asking the question.

BiteMyApple

The $40 Bolt is billed as “the world’s smallest portable iPhone USB wall charger,” one that includes a built-in 3000-mAh battery that’s good for two full charges of most smartphones.

German optics firm Leica has informed buyers of its new Monochrom Typ 246 digital camera that DNG files generated from the black-and-white shooter are incompatible with Apple's Photos app for OS X, and that using Photos to import Monochrom shots could result in corruption of the Photos library.

Is this Samsung’s answer to the Apple Watch’s...

New details about Samsung’s next-generation smartwatch have appeared in the latest build of the Gear developer kit that reveal how the device will look and—perhaps more importantly—how it will serve as an answer to the Apple Watch.

Unlike current Gear models and the Apple Watch, the next Gear will sport a circular display (hence its codename, “Orbis”) with a metal crown and frame. The crown, however, is not the most interesting part. In a departure from Apple’s crown-based navigation system, the Gear SDK indicates that the watch may actually be controlled by a completely different part of the watch.

According to a report from SamMobile, tech specs and design elements included in the new...

Back in May of last year, Google started enforcing a policy that requires Chrome extensions be hosted on its Chrome Web Store, but only on Windows. The goal was to prevent malware hidden in extensions installable from outside its store, and it even started disabling extensions already installed on users’ systems that weren’t hosted on the Chrome Web Store. Now, Google says it will bring that requirement to Mac Chrome users over the coming months, as well as the Chrome developer channel for Windows that wasn’t previously enforcing the policy:...

Google is no stranger to building for iOS—in fact, the company is reportedly working on linking its Android Wear smartwatch platform to iPhones. But until that big project is done, Google is testing the waters of Apple’s own smartwatch platform with its new Google News & Weather app for Apple Watch.

Google News & Weather for Apple Watch is pretty basic, even for by smartwatch standards.

Apple is close to settling a lawsuit brought by battery maker A123 Systems earlier this year, The Boston Globe reports. A123, which makes large lithium-ion batteries for vehicles, accused Apple of poaching five of the company’s key engineers last June - fueling speculation that the engineers were working on Apple’s rumored electric car project. Apple asked a judge to dismiss the case in March to no avail. The two sides reported Tuesday…

How to back up and restore your Apple Watch


Backing up and restoring an Apple Watch is not unlike backing up and restoring an iDevice. Andrew Cunningham

One thing we didn't manage to touch on in our otherwise comprehensive Apple Watch and Watch OS review is the backup and restore process—what you'll need to do if you ever switch watches or iPhones. Yesterday, Apple released a new support document outlining just how the backup process works, what gets backed up, what doesn't get backed up, and when it gets backed up.

Apple says the watch is automatically backed up to your iPhone, but if you really want to be sure you...

You might want to check your Verizon Wireless or Sprint bill to make sure it’s accurate.

Or at least look into the class action lawsuit against the carriers to see if you qualify for part of the settlement.

Wireless carriers Verizon Wireless and Sprint will pay a combined total of US$158 million to settle billing complain charges filed by the Federal Communications Commission.

According to the terms of the settlement, Verizon will pay US$90 million, while Sprint will have to spend US$68 million, for a total of US$158 million. At least US$120 million of the total amount will go to reimbursing consumers hit with the charges.

Bleep: When you absolutely, positively need your...

BitTorrent has released new free apps for communicating securely. Bleep is available both as a freely downloaded iOS app on the iOS App Store, and as a Mac app that can be downloaded from the Bleep website. Both set up direct peer-to-peer encrypted communications that cannot be intercepted as no messages are ever stored in the cloud. There's not even a signup process, so nobody has to know you're using Bleep.

If you're sending text messages or photos, Bleep provides two ways of communicating: Whispers are text and image messages that disappear once they've been read, and Messages are stored locally on the device. Of course, Whispers can be bypassed simply by taking a screenshot of whatever's on the screen, but we're all smart adults, right? Except for politicians and celebrities... Voice calls are also available with that same ...

The units feature an additional anodizing step, while the link bracelet is an intricate design — indicates that Apple could be on the verge of catching up with initial demand.

Few space gray or space black models have shipped thus far, even for those who ordered the device at midnight on launch day. This has caused consternation for some buyers who have seen...

Google's first Apple Watch app: News &...

Google has issued an update to its Google News & Weather app for iPhone that adds support for Apple Watch. After installing the update, users can browse top news items and local weather reports on their Watches. Some of the articles are accompanied by images, but looking at photos on the Apple Watch is less than ideal.

One nice feature is that a Force Touch on an article sends it to Safari Reading List, so you can read it full-screen when you get a chance. 

This is Google's first foray into Apple's mini wearable, and we suspect it won't be the last.

Big Data Analytics Fights Insider Threats


Cyberdefenders for years have adopted Fort Apache strategies to protect their networks. Strong perimeters could prevent attackers from reaching precious data, they reasoned. As technology marched on, however, the idea of an impermeable wall became as quaint as the Maginot Line on the eve of World War II. Firewalls alone no longer were strong enough to keep data safe. The mantra emanating from security circles was "It's not if you'll be breached, it's when."

Animated by the spirit of Castlevania's past, Bloodstained is a 2.5D platformer with RPG and crafting elements built around it.
