If your Twitter username and password were leaked

We’ve investigated claims of Twitter @names and passwords available on the “dark web,” and we’re confident the information was not obtained from a hack of Twitter’s servers.The purported Twitter @names and passwords may have been amassed from combining information from other recent breaches, malware on victim machines that are stealing passwords for all sites, or a combination of both.

"Intel Inside" some versions of the iPhone...

Intel XMM 7360 LTE Modem

Intel, which has been suffering lately due to its lack of focus on the mobile market and its dependence on the declining PC market, just got a boost today with a report from Bloomberg stating that the AT&T and general GSM versions of the upcoming iPhone 7 will use Intel LTE modems rather than the Qualcomm units used in the existing handsets.

The Verizon version of the iPhone 7 will reportedly continue using the Qualcomm modems, as well as handsets that are sold in China. 

The report supports earlier information from Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopft that the company expected that a major client would move to another supplier for some of its modem requirements, and also follows repeated rumors that Intel would supply as much as 50 percent of Apple's iPhone modem needs. Apple also reportedly sent...

Reports: Apple will move to Intel for some iPhone...

Apple is diversifying its chip supply for the iPhone 7, tapping both Intel and Qualcomm to provide chips. According to Bloomberg, the Cupertino company will use Intel’s modem chips for the AT&T version of the iPhone sold in the U.S., while Verizon iPhones sold in the U.S. will still use Qualcomm chips.If this report is true, it’s a huge win for Intel. The company’s chip has been passed over for every major smartphone release. Being selected by Apple would go a long way to legitimizing the Intel’s mobile efforts, and would also line the company coffers quite nicely—according to Bloomberg, AT&T is expected to sell 22 million iPhones in 2016 and 23 million in 2017.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click...

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.
As a culture, we can’t help but love the 1980s. Blame it on the kids of that era growing up and creating so much of today’s entertainment, or maybe we just have a sudden appreciation for garish colors and synth-pop, but the influence of that decade’s entertainment just isn’t fading.

Report: Apple to announce iMessage for Android at...

Apple may be ready to pop the Green Bubble.
A report from MacDailyNews suggests that Apple will unveil an iMessage app for Android at WWDC.  The site references a “a source familiar with the company’s thinking,” though cautions the timing is in flux and an announcement could actually come later.
Such a move is less the shocker now than it might have been in the past, given that Apple has three official apps in Google Play: Apple Music, Beats Pill, and Move to iOS (of course the latter is designed to get you off Android).To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

This could be really interesting.
Designer Martin Hajek has rendered a graphical simulation of a MacBook Pro incorporating an OLED touchbar, something that’s been rumored for the next-gen MacBook Pro, which has been anticipated for release later this year.
The concept shows what such an OLED system could look like in a current MacBook Pro and is pretty damn impressive.

Last month, industry mogul and KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities issued a note stating that the next-gen MacBook Pro might trade some of its function keys for a single OLED touch panel. This has been speculation, but Hajek’s renderings show how this might be pulled off and how various system functions could be controlled via this interface.

Opinion: Could Apple adopt Amazon’s Scout model to...

Novelists and app developers have a lot in common. An author puts a lot of work into writing a novel, but when it’s finally published it’s competing with millions of other books out there. Unless you’re a big-name writer, most people will never even get to know that yours exists.
You can try to be creative with your marketing. For example, I did a Kickstarter campaign for my first novel, 11/9, and included the opening scene of The Billion Dollar Heist at the end of it to drive sales through to that. But it’s impossible to compete with the big publishing houses.
The same is true of small-time app developers. Your app may be the greatest in the world, but it steps out into a world that already has around 1.5 million iOS apps and where nobody has ever heard of yours. And with Apple now allowing successful companies to buy even more App Store visibility through...

LeakedSource maintains a database of nearly two billion online account credential leaks.Twitter said in a blog post that it had obtained the leaked data, and matched it against their records. As a result it identified “a number of Twitter accounts” for “extra protection.” Affected accounts have been locked and their passwords must be reset by the account holder. “If your Twitter information was...

MacDailyNews reports Apple will announce iMessage for Android at Monday's Worldwide Developer Conference keynote event, reports MacDailyNews, citing unnamed “sources.” Currently, the instant messenger service is only available for iOS and OS X devices. 

iMessage lets you send texts, documents, photos, videos, contact information, and group messages over Wi-Fi, mobile phone Internet access, or other forms of Internet access to other iOS or OS X. It offers an alternative to standard SMS/MMS messaging.

Apple is increasingly focused on services which means opening up certain avenues beyond its own iOS and OS X platforms, according to MacDailyMews. For example, Apple has added person-to-person Apple Pay payments via Messages andreleased Apple Music for Android last November.

Woman Uses 'Hey Siri' To Call An Ambulance...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Networkworld: When Apple released the iPhone 6s, it included a great new Siri feature which enables users to activate the intelligent assistant via voice. Dubbed 'Hey Siri,' the feature is particularly convenient because the iPhone 6s' M9 motion co-processor is 'always listening' and thereby lets users use 'Hey Siri' even when the device isn't connected to a power source. Recently, Stacey Gleeson of Australia used the 'Hey Siri' feature to successfully call an ambulance while she was tending to her daughter Giana who had stopped breathing. "I picked her up and sat down with her on the floor," Gleeson said in an interview. "And as I checked her airways, I looked over and remembered my phone." Thinking quick on her feet, Gleeson said, "Hey Siri, call the ambulance." Fortunately, Gleeson managed to resuscitate her daughter while the ambulance was in route. And while it's impossible to know for sure, it's entirely possible that the time Gleeson...

The article also says it’s "highly likely" that the space grey option will be no more. Finally, Mac Otakara says the iPhone 7 will use the same LCD glass as Apple’s current smartphones. 

Chances that this rumor is true (IMHO): 50%. I can see Apple adding a dark blue color, but I don’t think the company will ditch the popular space grey hue.

External Link: Big Changes Coming to the App Store

Apple has informed select journalists of major changes coming to the App Store. Daring Fireball’s John Gruber summarized the changes as: shorter app review times, subscription-based pricing for all apps, and better app discovery. To make apps easier to find, Apple is promising a smarter Featured tab that omits installed apps, the return of the Categories tab, and paid search ads. Some of these changes may prove controversial, but it’s good to see Apple at least making an effort to improve the App Store experience. No mention was made of demo versions or paid upgrades for non-subscription apps, but since the new app subscriptions will have trial periods, it’s possible that Apple thinks the upcoming changes will suffice. Read the full article at TidBITS, the oldest continuously published technology publication on the Internet.

An anonymous reader quotes a report from 9to5Mac: Apple has quietly created an energy subsidiary, 'Apple Energy' LLC, registered in Delaware but run from its Cupertino headquarters. The company has seemingly formed to allow it to sell excess electricity generated by its solar farms in Cupertino and Nevada, with plans to sell electricity across the whole of the U.S. But a set of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission filings suggests that Apple could have bigger ambitions in the power field. Currently, when private companies sell their excess power, they can only do so to energy companies -- and they often (varies by state) have to sell at wholesale rates. What Apple seemingly could to do, however, is sell directly to end-users at market rates. In other words, get paid retail prices for its excess power. Currently companies like Green Mountain Power can sell green renewable energy to homeowners all over the U.S. It wouldn't be a stretch to see Apple do this as a product in the future...

FAQ: How Apple’s new App Store subscriptions affect...

Update: This article was updated with additional information from Apple clarifying that apps approved to offer subscriptions do not need to be useful or perform any function when a subscription isn’t active.
Seemingly out of nowhere, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, gave interviews to several news outlets about significant changes to certain App Store policies around subscriptions—notably letting all apps potentially offer automatically renewing subscriptions. The company followed up with a page on its developer site describing what’s coming.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please...

Spotify complains Apple’s new App Store subscription...

Following news of incoming changes to Apple’s App Store that will benefit developers with a new subscription revenue split and paid search result ads, Spotify today outlined to The Verge why the improvements don’t address their issues with Apple’s policies.
Specifically, a Spotify representative noted the company’s inability to offer special deals to customers and lack of access to data into “why customers churn — or who even qualifies as a long-term subscriber.”

Notable apps and app updates for June 9, 2016

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

iOS apps and updates

Camera+ version 8

We covered the update of Camera+ ($2.99) yesterday in the AWT News Update, but it bears repeating. The app is one of the longest-lived iOS camera apps, and with the guidance of professional photographer Lisa Bettany and the team at Taptaptap, the app keeps getting better. 

The new update adds slow shutter speeds up to 30 seconds long, making it possible for the iPhone to do things like take night sky shots. The app also adds support for ultra-low ISO levels, and lets iPhone 6 and 6s owners actually see a preview of what the extended shutter speeds and low ISO settings will result...

Google cofounder Larry Page reportedly is working with two Silicon Valley startups to develop a flying car. One is Zee.Aero, which Page personally has funded since its launch in 2010, when it set up shop next to Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California. The firm reportedly has filed a patent application for a small, all-electric vehicle that could take off and land vertically. Page is said to have invested more than $100 million in Zee.Aero, which has about 150 employees and an airport hangar where prototypes are being tested.

As for the Chinese focus, Logic Pro X now includes three new Chinese instrument patches: pipa, erhu, and percussion. Like GarageBand, Logic also includes more than 300 Chinese instrument loops for dropping into your own mixes.

Updated App Store guidelines hint at possible...

While it’s been expected that Apple will rebrand Mac OS X as “macOS” at WWDC next week, this has all but been confirmed in paperwork sent out to the developer community.
Hidden in today’s announcements regarding the App Store was yet another hint at the change. In a FAQ from on the iTunes Connect website, Apple mistakenly refers to Mac OS X as ‘macOS,’ again prematurely hinting at the change.
Back in March, Apple also named a framework file in OS X 10.11.4 that referred to the operating system as macOS. The following month, Apple launched a new environmental webpage on which it referred to the operating system as MacOS.

While there’s still some uncertainty as to whether the rebranded operating system will be labeled “MacOS” or “macOS”, the name...

Moovweb announces planned integration with Apple

Moovweb, which specializes in powering mobile experiences for the world’s leading brands, has announced plans to optimize its platform for Apple Pay’s rumored debut on mobile web.

Apple creates an ‘Apple Energy’ energy subsidiary

Apple has created an energy subsidiary, “Apple Energy’” LLC, that’s registered in Delaware but run from its Cupertino, California headquarters, reports 9to5Mac. The company was apparently formed to allow the company to sell excess electricity generated by its solar farms in Cupertino and Nevada, with plans to sell electricity across the whole of the U.S., the article adds.

“Currently, when private companies sell their excess power, they can only do so to energy companies – and they often (varies by state) have to sell at wholesale rates,” notes 9to5Mac. “What Apple seemingly could to do, however, is sell directly to end-users at market rates. In other words, get paid retail prices for its excess power.”

Over a year ago, Apple announced an $850 million agreement to buy solar power from First Solar, the biggest U.S. developer of solar farms. The deal will supply enough electricity...

Apple to significantly overhaul App Store for the...

As good as Apple’s App Store has been over the years, it still has its rough spots. It can be difficult to find apps, even when searching for them by name and it’s tough for developers to stand out from each other.
This coming straight from the horse’s mouth, Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, stated that a variety of changes are coming to the App Store. First, a new App Store subscription model will reward developers who can keep paying customers around for longer than a year. Apple will slice its cut of their subscriptions to 15 percent from the standard 30 percent after the first year. The company is planning to encourage all developers to explore the subscription model—and now they actually can. Prior...

Chump change: Throwing Apple’s money around

It’s great that we have the Internet so that people have a place to post their ways for Apple to spend a metric butt-ton of money to solve other peoples’ problems.
Writing for the html version of circus poodles jumping through little hoops that is Business Insider, Matthew DeBord modestly suggests “Apple should buy Uber.” (Tip o’ the antlers to @JonyIveParody.)
Why not? How much could it be?

Conservatively, Uber's acquisition value would be something like $80 billion.

So, because it’s so reasonable, Apple should definitely not think twice about this and just go ahead and take the advice of a guy who said the iPhone 5 would fail and then said no, seriously, the iPhone 5 is really gonna fail. Why? Because…...

The Guardian has an interesting piece on a prototype car that caught the interest of Steve Jobs in the spring of 2010. Called the V-Vehicle, it was an attempt to create a lightweight, low-cost, gas-powered car whose secret was cheaper materials.

Working with designers Tom Matano and Anke Bodack, Bryan Thompson had developed a car body made of polypropylene and glass fibre that was 40% lighter than a conventional steel vehicle and would cost 70% less to produce. The creamy white hatchback had unpainted, upgradable body panels and a “space frame” body, a design technique usually reserved for high-end cars like the Ferrari 360 or Audi’s line of cars.

Within a few hours of receiving an email saying that Steve wanted to see it, Thompson and the team had taken the car to Steve’s house – where Apple’s co-founder had plenty of advice to...

Google Matches Apple's Plan To Give Developers...

An anonymous reader writes from a report via Recode: Apple announced a new revenue sharing model on Wednesday that would give developers more money when users subscribe to a service via their apps. Instead of keeping 70 percent of all revenue generated from subscriptions, publishers will be able to keep 85 percent of revenue, once a subscriber has been paying for a year. Google has decided to match Apple's latest offering. It too will move from a 70/30 split to a 85/15 split for subscriptions. However, instead of requiring developers to hook a subscriber for 12 months before offering the better split, it will make it available right away. Sources have said Google has been testing the new model over a year ago with video services in a way to get Play subscriptions to work with its TV streaming offerings like the Chromecast. Google has yet to announce when their new pricing plan will roll out. In other Google and Apple related news, Google's AI 'TensorFlow' software is coming to iOS...

IDC: personal computer shipments will decline 7.3%...

Worldwide PC (as in personal computers, not just Windows systems) shipments are forecast to decline by 7.3% year -over-year in 2016 according to an updated forecast from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker. The outlook continues to call for progressively smaller declines through 2017 followed by stable volume in 2018. 

However, growth in 2016 is now expected to be roughly 2% below earlier projections as conditions have been weaker than expected, according to IDC. Growth in the first quarter of 2016 (1Q16) came in at -12.5%, just below the research group’s forecast of -11.3%, and inhibitors such as weak currencies, depressed commodity prices, political uncertainty, and delayed projects continue to constrain shipments.

Although growth rates for devices such as phones and tablets continue to fall,...

WWDC wish list: Will we see any new hardware?

Over the past couple of years, Apple has turned WWDC into a decidedly software-centric show. It’s not just a new set of toys for developers to play with or even the double-barreled introduction of the latest versions of iOS and OS X; three of the last five conferences haven’t seen any new hardware at all, with the lone bright spots being the retina MacBook Pro, refreshed MacBook Airs, and a sneak peak at the radical Mac Pro redesign. And over the past week, several well-connected bloggers have intimated that this year’s show will be all about software.But that doesn’t mean there isn’t any hope. The rumor mill might be uncharacteristically quiet for the week before a major Apple event, but there are still plenty of reasons to believe Tim Cook might be hiding a few goodies up his sleeve when he hits the stage Monday at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. After all, when Phil Schiller spilled the beans on the...
