WatchOS 3 Offers New Hope for Smartwatch Category


Apple finally responded to concerns that were threatening to scuttle its once-promising wearables category. Its introduction of watchOS 3 at this week's WWDC has drawn high praise. The Apple Watch represented the company's attempt to marry the ultimate Dick Tracy smart gadget with the genius of the iPhone, but it fell short. Instead of a convenience, it was far too slow and complicated for many consumers to navigate. WatchOS 3 is a "significant and welcome upgrade," said Jitesh Ubrani, senior research analyst at IDC.

I make it a point not to install early betas of software on hardware that I use every day, but of all the software Apple announced at WWDC on Monday, the one that's tempting me the most is WatchOS 3. As many new things as iOS 10 and macOS Sierra both include, the next version of WatchOS is easily the biggest and most obvious improvement over the current one, and now that I've actually seen it in action on real hardware, it’s going to be hard to wait for.
A couple of months ago, I wrote about...

Apple exec explains why the company has not brought...

Prior to WWDC, a report emerged claiming that Apple would at long last unveil iMessage for Android. Seeing how Apple had made its streaming music service available on Android, many found this report to be somewhat plausible. As you’re probably aware of by now, however, iMessage for Android was nowhere to be found at WWDC this week. Now, we’ve gotten a little bit of insight into Apple’s reasoning for not bringing its messaging service to Google’s smartphone platform…

Apple will never bring iMessage to Android and you...

Newsflash: Apple is using its software to convince people to buy new iPhones. That classic Apple strategy remains one of the reasons why Android users will never, ever get to use iMessage on anything other than an iPhone.
Unnamed Apple executives confirmed that iMessage will never be expanded to Android. According to The Verge, Apple believes that making iMessage the top messaging service and keeping it iOS-only brings added value to owning an iPhone. Furthermore, iMessage already has one billion active users, which Apple thinks is enough to provide solid data for the iPhone-maker to venture into artificial intelligence and machine learning.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Nintendo presented two different demos of Breath of Wild. One focused on the exploration and game mechanics, while the other provided elements of the story line.

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.

Grim Legends 3: The Dark City

It's always big news when a great game franchise gets a new episode, and that's the case with Grim Legends 3: The Dark City (free with in-app purchases).

As the player, you're playing mini games and solving puzzles in a gothic city, hunting monsters in beautiful hand-painted backdrops, and more. Grim Legends 3: The Dark City is truly a work of art!

Slide to Unlock got audible gasps of amazement at the original iPhone’s unveiling, and it’s been as constant as the grid of icons ever since, through every iteration of iOS.
iOS 10 removes Slide to Unlock, the first bit of iOS we ever saw, welcomed with grins and applause when Jobs demoed it. Good night, buddy.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Sling TV support coming to the Apple TV; what does...

As announced at Monday’s Apple Worldwide Developer Conference keynote, Dish Network's “skinny” TV bundle, Sling TV, is coming to the Apple TV. This will lead to two rumors: 1) Apple is abandoning plans for its own video streaming service, and 2) Apple should buy Dish.

Current Sling TV subscribers will be able to access all of Sling TV’s live streaming television directly from the fourth generation Apple TV. What’s more, Dish and Apple are offering a bundled deal that would let potential customers purchase a new Apple TV for $89 ($60 cheaper than the regular retail price) if they pay up front for three months of Sling TV, which costs $20 a month.

This partnership should be beneficial for both companies, according to Business Insider. Sling TV is one of the first integrations of a cable bundle and live pay-TV provider into Apple TV. BI adds that the Sling TV...

Review: Catalyst Case for iPad mini 4

Catalyst, known for its waterproof cases, has recently released its Catalyst Case ($90) for iPad mini 4. The case is designed to be waterproof to 6.6 feet deep, and Catalyst claims it will protect the iPad mini 4 from drops up to 4 feet. The hard plastic and rubber case fully encloses the iPad, of course, with screen protection and a thin membrane enabling the use of Touch ID. The clear plastic shows off the back of the device, and rubber plugs cover both the headphone and Lightning port. Sound, oddly, is vented toward the back of the device. Catalyst Case comes with a thin plastic multi-angle stand.{/exp:char_limit}

Rumor: Apple ramping up procurement for second-gen...

In the midst of a news-filled week at WWDC, sources within the supply chain have been cited as saying that Apple may be gearing up to launch the second-generation Apple Watch alongside the iPhone 7, in September.
Shipments of chips and components for the second-generation Apple Watch are set to begin in the third quarter, the sources indicated.
While the time frame is understandably vague, the component production range of July to September would be compatible with Apple launching the Watch with the iPhone 7. If the next iPhone is an iterative model, as widely expected, then a new Watch could give the launch event more punch.

The report also suggests that Apple may be looking for an appreciable bump in sales. While Apple has never...

The European Commission may deliver its verdict on Apple’s tax arrangements in Ireland as soon as next month, according to Irish Finance Minister Michael Noonan.

“The speculation now is that the commission may make a decision sometime in July,’’ he told Bloomberg. “But we don’t know that with certainty. It’s the general feel around Brussels that they’re walking toward a July decision.”

Ireland will fight any negative commission decision to the EU courts, Noonan added. The government will “vigorously defend’’ any adverse Apple tax decision, he has said previously. 

The EU, Europe’s anti-trust and consumer investigation agency, has claimed that Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands have attracted investment and jobs by helping big companies avoid tax in other countries, including EU members. The commission suspects...

Before now, Apple’s HomeKit platform required an Apple TV for remote access control of most accessories. If you had network-connected lightbulbs or other home automation accessories, you’d need to have a new Apple TV connected to that same network to control them with Siri when out of the house. With iOS 10, Apple is giving iPad that capability too, and it’s now using multiple remote access devices to make all of your iPads and Apple TVs work together to extend your HomeKit network.

Apple’s Lisa Jackson praises TSMC for its...

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC) — a key supplier of mobile processors for, among other things, the iPhone — says it will purchase 200 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of green power in 2016 compared to the previous year’s purchase of 100 million kWh, further supporting Taiwan’s renewable energy development and environmentally friendly low-carbon measures.

This purchase accounts for 20% of the green power made available for purchase by the Ministry of Economic Affairs Bureau of Energy in 2016. As the power generation process for the electricity available under this program causes virtually no carbon emissions, the purchase of 200 million kWh in green power will reduce carbon emissions by more than 100 million kilograms, equivalent to the carbon absorbed by 10 million trees in one year, says TSMC Spokesperson and Senior Vice President Lora Ho.

You can now call me Mx. Mark

Tim Carmody, writing for Kottke.org:“Mx.” (pronounced “mix” or “mux”) is a gender-neutral honorific. It’s used by people who don’t want to be identified by gender, whether their gender identity isn’t well-represented by the older forms, or they just don’t want to offer that information or assume it when addressing someone else. “Mx.” was added to Merriam Webster’s unabridged dictionary in April, has begun to be used on official forms in the UK (the Royal Bank of Scotland has been an early adopter), and appeared in two recent stories in the New York Times, once as a preferred honorific for a Barnard College student who doesn’t identify as male or female, and once in a story about “Mx.” itself.∞ Read this on The Loop

Initial findings show targeted, digital advertising on USAT’s ePort Interactive highlighting Apple Pay availability at point- of-sale resulted in a:

More good news for the Apple Watch: Worldwide shipments of wearable devices are expected to reach 101.9 million units by the end of 2016, representing 29.0% growth over 2015. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker, the market for wearable devices will experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.3%, culminating in 213.6 million units shipped in 2020.

Popularized by devices like the Apple Watch, Moto 360, and others, the smartwatch category is expected to increase from 41.0% of total wearables shipments in 2016 to 52.1% in 2020. However, not all watches are the same, according to IDC.

While smartwatches are in the spotlight today, future growth will come from basic watches that provide some sort of fitness/sleep tracking while not being sophisticated enough to run...

External Link: What Is Differential Privacy?

Apple briefly announced “differential privacy” at this year’s WWDC keynote, but didn’t go into details as to exactly what that means. Cryptographer Matthew Green isn’t sure what Apple means either, but he is familiar with the concept of differential privacy, and in a blog post, explains the basics and how Apple could be implementing it.

To make features like Spotlight and QuickType more useful to you, Apple needs additional data from your iPhone usage, but it doesn’t want to violate your privacy. Unfortunately, even if Apple collects data anonymously, it could still be analyzed later to identify you. In effect, differential privacy injects a certain amount of phony data into the system, sacrificing a bit of accuracy for more privacy. We’re curious to learn more about how this works, too, and how effective it actually is. Read the full article at TidBITS, the oldest continuously published technology publication on the Internet....

Earlier this week during its WWDC keynote, Apple added highly-requested support for lyrics to the Music app in iOS 10. While lyrics support wasn’t immediately live when the first beta was released on Monday, it has gradually been rolling out since then to various songs and artists.
While I welcome lyrics support with open arms, Apple’s implementation of it is very basic. To access lyrics, you simply swipe from the bottom of the Now Playing screen. Lyrics are presented in plain text and there’s no option to annotate them or easily share them. Personally, I think there are a fews ways in which Apple could have done a lot more to improve the lyrics experience.

The Mac maker is planning similar measures with other plug-ins like Java, Silverlight and QuickTime. This move will force websites with both plug-in and HTML5-based media implementations to use their HTML5.

“On websites that offer both Flash and HTML5 implementations of content, Safari users will now always experience the modern HTML5 implementation, delivering improved performance and battery life,” he added.

Netflix for iPad gets support for Picture-in-Picture...

No more complaining that Netflix is preventing you from being productive.
This week Netflix released support for Picture-in-Picture, a new multitasking feature for iPads running the latest version of iOS 9 that lets you minimize the screen so you can run other apps in the background. Picture-in-Picture was originally introduced with iOS 9 last year, but now you’ll need the latest iOS 9.3.2, as well as the Netflix iOS app version 8.7.0, in order to enable Picture-in-Picture.
The Netflix player does not have a button to activate Picture-in-Picture, but it will be enabled once you close the Netflix app. Additionally, 9to5Mac reported that this new multitasking feature does not work if you are running iOS 10 developer beta, which was just released on Monday at WWDC. Furthermore, iOS 9 Picture-in-Picture only works on compatible iPad models, the...

WWDC: Apple switching from HFS+ to Apple File System...

In the midst of new announcements and changes at WWDC, Apple took the wraps off its Apple File System during its Platform State of the Union event after the keynote speech. The change marks the replacement of the HFS+ file system, which has been used by Apple for more than 18 years.
According to a document on Apple’s Developer site, Apple File System improves on HFS+ while supporting “nearly all” of its features. But it’s optimized for flash and SSD storage, with modern touches like 64-bit support and strong encryption.

During the speech, Apple highlighted two big features of the Apple File System. The first is cloning. Given standard use by an operating system, duplicate files can still hog space and resources. Apple File System clones these files rather than...

Apple wants Gatekeeper in macOS to guard the gate...

Apple will further lock down what apps can be run on Macs when it releases macOS Sierra this fall, reports Computerworld. The move is “likely a response” to revelations last year that Gatekeeper -could be easily bypassed by attackers to plant malware on machines.

Some apps downloaded and installed from the Internet could adversely affect your Mac. Gatekeeper is designed to help protect your Mac from such apps. Apple really wants you to download Mac apps from its Mac App Store.

For apps that are downloaded from places other than the Mac App Store, developers can get a unique Developer ID from Apple and use it to digitally sign their apps. The Developer ID allows Gatekeeper to block apps created by malware developers and verify that apps haven't been tampered with since they were signed. If an app was developed...

Russians Hack DNC Servers to Get Goods on Trump


Two groups of Russian hackers burrowed into the Democratic National Committee's servers and spent months stealing information on Donald Trump, the Republican Party's presumptive presidential nominee, according to Crowdstrike. The security firm identified "two sophisticated adversaries on the network," noted CTO Dmitri Alperovitch, dubbed "Cozy Bear" and "Fancy Bear." They are "some of the best adversaries [among the] groups we encounter on a daily basis," he said. "Their tradecraft is superb, operational security second to none."

Each since it was released, Apple has made noticeable strides to improve the built-in Health app. It launched on iOS 8 where we saw Apple promote HealthKit enabled apps, then with iOS 9 we saw the expansion to new health data points. iOS 10 takes Health a step further by now allowing users to store their health records directly in the app using the Health Level 7 Continuity of Care Document (HL7 CCD) standard. No longer having to track paperwork or use CDs, these health records will be tracked directly in-app with the ability to be imported from Mail, Safari, and other applications.

Hands-on: iOS 10 + watchOS 3 Home app for HomeKit on...

HomeKit, Apple’s smart home accessory framework, is gaining some much needed attention in iOS 10 and watchOS 3 thanks to a new built-in Home app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Apple previously relied on third-party apps from accessory makers to control the HomeKit experience, using Siri as the only first-party controller, and various apps like the third-party Home app and Hesperus filled in the void.
Apple’s new Home app comes with a modern look, relatively easy-to-use controls, and access to accessories and scenes from anywhere on iOS 10. Check out our hands-on below to see Apple’s Home app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch in action.

iOS 10 update could make millions of iPads obsolete...

iOS 10 might just push you to snag an updated iPad to run it.
During Monday’s keynote, Apple announced that it would drop support for the iPad 2, the iPad 3 and the first-gem iPad mini.
Upon iOS 10’s release, up to 40 percent of all iPads could become obsolete according to mobile engagement form Localytics.

It’s possible that these numbers have changed a bit since March as Apple sells more iPads, but give that it now sells about 10 million a quarter, and cumulatively some 318 million iPads have been sold in total, whatever was sold since isn’t going to shift the needle by much.
As such, the question is whether iOS 10 will cause customers to upgrade their older iPads or lead to the iPad market’s decline in the tablet ecosystem.
Something to consider as...

Well, another WWDC keynote is in the books, and boy are Susie’s thumbs tired. (Yeah, due to spotty Wi-Fi and a tethering fail, she wound up live-blogging about 45 minutes of the two-hour keynote from her iPhone, using the shockingly helpful QuickType keyboard.) This week Susie and Glenn are joined by Caitlin McGarry, Macworld’s East Coast staff writer who came to San Francisco for the week, because who can stay away from all this excitement?
And the keynote at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium certainly was exciting, with so many announcements, it was hard to digest them as they were happening. So on the podcast today, we discuss developers as the glue, the maturing of Apple’s newest platforms, Apple’s approach to AI, and some of the features we are most excited about. There will surely be more to unpack in the weeks ahead, and we’d love to hear your thoughts too....

In iOS 10, users now have the option of closing all open Safari tabs in one fell swoop. To do so, simply tap and hold the tab button, and you’ll be prompted to close all open tabs at once. more…Filed under:

Everybody loves free stuff, and that goes doubly so—maybe even quadruply so—when you put the word ‘free’ in front of the word ‘pizza,’ which T-Mobile did on Tuesday. During the company’s second T-Mobile Tuesday free giveaway, many customers ended up crusty after being burned when their local Domino’s rejected their redemption code.
As with all giveaways, a company is only willing to throw so much free product out their doors. Faster than you could say “cancel my account,” many Domino’s pizza locations reached their freebie capacity, as Android Police pointed out. Both pizza freebie recipients and those who were left paying for their own pies like a sucker took to Twitter on Tuesday....

Review: Jaybird Freedom Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

If there’s one thing unique about the new Jaybird Freedom ($200), it’s that it demands customization from its owner. Though the Freedom is currently being sold alongside Jaybird’s very good X2, it feels like a successor in every way. In the Freedom we find a number of major design changes – evidence of choices that Jaybird has made about how Bluetooth sport headphones should fit, feel, and sound. While these might not be ideal for all users out of the box, there is ample room for tweaks and adjustments. If music is an indispensable part of your workout, we think the Jaybird Freedom is worth checking out.{/exp:char_limit}

Personally, I find YouTube’s business to be very disingenuous. It is built on the backs of free, stolen content and that’s how they got that big. I think any free-tiered service is not fair. It’s making their numbers and getting them a big IPO and it is built on the back of my work and that of my peers. That’s how I feel about it. Strongly.

New Linux Lite Is a Powerhouse Distro in Disguise


Linux Lite 3.0 is anything but what its name implies. It is a full-featured operating system that lets you get down to serious business right out of the box.

Shipments of chips and components for the second-generation Apple Watch are set to begin in the third quarter, the sources indicated.

The time-frame is of course vague, but component production sometime in the July to September range would be compatible with Apple launching the Watch with the iPhone 7. If the next iPhone is an iterative model, as widely expected, then a new Watch could give the launch event more punch.
The same report suggests that Apple may be hoping for a significant boost in sales …

Would Apple consider macOS and iOS both running on a...

I still think that macOS and iOS will merge at some point in the future. Some folks predict an alternative theory: iOS running along Mac OS X on a Mac.

A friend made this prediction: "The next iMac will be a touch enable computer either through the screen or through a multi-touch tablet and will have macOS along with iOS built in. This would greatly increase the marketing potential for the apps and advertising."

And in a long-ago (about 2010) ZDNet column, tech writer Adrian Kingsley-Hughes said he thought we might see iOS running alongside Mac OS X (now just macOS) proper. 

"Pre iPad, it made little sense for Apple to even think of putting the iPhone OS on the Mac, since the apps were specifically designed for a small screen. But with the iPad, Apple is now building quite a repository of apps designed for a far bigger screen," he wrote. "It’s not hard to imagine apps …....
