Apple has released the first public betas of iOS 11.4 and tvO 11.4, both of which add support for AirPlay 2.

Imagine Products, StorageDNA partner for myLTOdna interface

Imagine Products — creator of software utilities for backing up, viewing, sharing, transcoding, and archiving video assets — and StorageDNA — which specializes in intelligent nearline and archiving workflow solutions for media professionals —have collaborated on an integrated solution that enables random access to files on an LTO tape, essentially turning it into a hard drive with dnaLTFS.

The new joint solution is called myLTOdna. It’s an integration between Imagine Products’ myLTO tape-authoring application and StorageDNA’s HyperTape high performance direct access tape solution powered by dnaLTFS. The result is a simple and intuitive user interface with which to administrate HyperTape operating modes manually, or automatically from creative applications such as Imagine Products’ PrimeTranscoder — a process that is highly preferable to command line operations, says Tridib Chakravarty, CEO and president of StorageDNA

Worldwide spending on security-related hardware, software, and services is forecast to reach $91.4 billion in 2018, an increase of 10.2% over the amount spent in 2017, according to IDC. This pace of growth is expected to continue for the next several years as industries invest heavily in security solutions to meet a wide range of threats and requirements, adds the research group.

IDC says worldwide spending on security solutions will achieve a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.0% over the 2016-2021 forecast period and total $120.7 billion in 2021.

"Banks, discrete manufacturers, especially within the high-tech sector, and the federal government are spending the most on security to avoid large scale cyber-attacks and adhere to regulatory compliance," said Eileen Smith, program director, Customer Insights and Analysis. "Looking ahead to 2021, as the need the to protect IoT connected devices and infrastructure becomes paramount, industries like telecom and state...

Strategy Analytics: third party messaging apps better...

Consumers are becoming less social in person by becoming more social “virtually” through advanced messaging features, according to Strategy Analytics (www.strategyanalytics.com). Achieved through pre-installed RCS platforms and self-installed third party messaging apps, these platforms are providing a more consistent, expressive and compelling messaging experience for the sender, according to the research group.

Key findings from Strategy Analytics’ report include:

° Unlike SMS - a universal standard available across all phones - social messaging apps are run by third-party companies and need to be downloaded separately. This does mean however, that OTT messaging apps are consistent across all devices, regardless of operating system.

° Features that attract users are critical to the success of social messaging apps. Capabilities such as payment or game options within one app make...

Consumer robotics revenues to reach $23 billion by 2022

A new study from Juniper Research (www.juniperresearch.com) has found that domestic aide robotics will drive consumer robotics hardware revenues from an estimated $6.4 billion in 2018 to nearly $23 billion by 2022. That’s an increase of over 250%.

Juniper says that domestic aide robots, such as robotic vacuum cleaners, will account for 73% of total revenues by 2022. This will be due to increasing popularity of such devices from iRobot, Dyson and Samsung. These have been joined by lower cost devices, which will broaden the segment’s appeal.

The research group found that, despite popularity of domestic aide robots, the biggest growth area of consumer robotics will be in the educational area, representing an average annual growth of 40% in hardware revenues. Companies such as Anki and Wonder Workshop are joining established players like LEGO in providing robotics focused on programming. Juniper...

IDC (www.idc.com) has published results from its newest Tracker research program covering the fast-growing market of Smart Home Devices. In 2017, 433.1 million smart home devices were shipped worldwide, growing 27.6% from the previous year.

Looking ahead, IDC anticipates a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.5% as the market balloons to 939.7 million devices shipped in 2022. Within the smart home market, the smart speaker category, which includes devices like the Amazon Echo and Google Home, will remain the fastest growing category throughout the forecast. Meanwhile, shipments for most other categories, with the exception of video entertainment products, will experience a double-digit CAGR during the same period.

"The smart home market is still in its infancy but we're already seeing some significant changes in consumers' and vendors' approach," said Jitesh Ubrani senior research analyst for IDC Mobile Device...

5G Boost won’t save vanishing wireless connectivity...

There will be 9.0 billion user-linked subscriptions to wireless services by 2023, up from 7.7 billion today according to new forecasts from Strategy Analytics (www.strategyanalytics.com). The research group predicts that 5G adoption will follow a comparable path to that seen by 4G LTE, but warns that there’s limited growth left in connectivity revenue for service providers.

Key findings of the report include:

° Wireless service revenue will peak in 2021 at US$881 billion, just 3% above the level forecast for 2018.

° User-linked mobile 5G connections will grow from 5 million in 2019 to 577 million in 2023 (excluding fixed wireless applications and industrial IOT). These will account for 10% of connectivity revenue in 2023.

Prior to the launch of 5G services, there is considerable time for 4G LTE platforms to evolve though LTE-Advanced and LTE-Advanced Pro technologies....

Connected clothing to become a $1 billion industry in...

A new study from Juniper Research (www.juniperresearch.com) has found that the wearables market has begun to shift away from wrist-based devices such as smartwatches and fitness trackers, with other device categories forecast to grow much faster.

The research group ranks the fastest growing wearable sectors, in terms of shipments and compound annual growth rates (CAGRs), over the next two years as: connected clothing (102%), smart glasses (98%), smart jewelry (55%), hearables (31%), and smart watches (31%).

Juniper forecasts that the total smart wearables market will reach nearly 350 million devices shipped by 2020. The market is currently dominated by smartwatches and activity trackers, with 137 million devices expected to be shipped in 2018. However, growth will slow, shipping almost 190 million by 2020 as the lifecycle of devices lengthens as fewer new features and a software focus delay...

Gartner: I&O skill gaps to cause business...

Two-thirds of organizations are not adequately addressing the infrastructure and operations (I&O) skills gaps that will impede their digital business initiatives, according to Gartner, Inc. (www.gartner.com). Successful I&O organizations will need to implement vastly different roles and technologies during the next five years, adds the research group.

Gartner forecasts that, by 2019, IT technical specialist hires will fall by more than 5%. Moreover, by 2021, 40%of IT staff will hold multiple roles, most of which will be business-related rather than technology-related. 

"What made I&O leaders successful in the past is not what will make them thrive in the future," said Hank Marquis, research director at Gartner. "Instead of focusing on the 'what' of I&O jobs — such as technical knowledge, education and training — I&O leaders need to shift their focus to the 'how' — the behavioral...

Nearly four in five companies (79%) were hit by a breach in the last year, according to new research from Balabit (www.balabit.com), a provider of privileged access management and log management solutions.

The report also revealed that seven out of ten (68%) businesses expect to be impacted by further breaches this year, with more than a quarter anticipating a breach to occur within the next six months. The Balabit survey was deployed in the UK, France, Germany and the U.S., and reveals the attitudes of 400 IT and security professionals surrounding their IT security concerns, their experience with IT security breaches, their understanding of how and when breaches occur, and the strategies they’re using to combat hackers.

According to Balabit, the majority of businesses know very little about the nature of the security breaches that take place within their organizations. While a high percentage of companies...

Security-as-a-Service grows 21% in 2017

2017 has seen a steep increase in adoption of Security-as-a-Service  (SaaS), thanks to its multiple advantages compared to software licensing, according to Canalys (www.canalys.com). However, this fast change in revenue stream is creating headaches for vendors who have to rework forecasts for 2018 to not disappoint investors, adds the research group.

Security-as-a-service (SaaS) registered strong growth in 2017 at 21% to US$4 billion, following the rise in adoption of cloud solutions for enterprises. This growth was double the pace compared to the rest of the security market with software and hardware growing respectively 5% and 10% year-on-year to reach $27 billion combined. Canalys estimates the total security market was US$31 billion in 2017, up 10% overall.

Ampeg bass amps are so universally revered, it’s hard to imagine a time when they weren’t synonymous with electric bass amplifiers. But what started from a modest idea — literally, an “amplified peg” that would install into an upright bass — in Everett Hull’s modest shop in Midtown Manhattan in the 1930s, has become a towering name in the world of bass amplification.

This is a great article from Universal Audio. You can even hear how each amp sounds using the Brainworx developed plug-ins.

Why aren’t there third party USB-C to Lightning...

John Gruber:

Here’s a thread on Reddit asking why there aren’t any USB-C to Lightning cables from reliable, certified companies like Anker, Monoprice, and Amazon. It’s a year-old thread and the situation is unchanged. This stinks now that all MacBooks and the new iPad Pros have gone to USB-C, along with chargers that output by USB-C.

Here’s a link to the Reddit thread.

This goes to the heart of my complaints about the USB-C standard. There are plenty of cables out there with Lightning at one end and USB-C at the other. But they are far from all the same. The Apple cable seems to be the only one that does all the things you’d want, including reliable, consistent support for fast charging and data transfer.

I’d love the ability to plug in a cable and get a report on exactly what the cable supports. As I understand it,...

This guy is suing Adobe for a bug that deleted years...

Motherboard:

At issue is a feature in Premiere Pro called clean cache. Editing video takes up a lot of hard drive space as video editing software creates various redundancies and backups during the editing process. Programs such as Premiere Pro store those redundancies in a cache and, once a project is finished, users can clear that cache to free up disk space.

The knee-jerk reaction here? Why didn’t you backup your work? Why depend on Adobe’s backup process?

And those are probably fair questions. But the complaint seems more nuanced than that:

“The ‘Clean Cache’ command permanently deleted substantial and numerous Files and Data that were not within the ‘Media Cache’ folder or any of its subdirectories, including but not limited to Files and Data that had never been associated with [Premiere Pro]”

And:

The mass deletion isn’t a one off and Cooper likely isn’t the only user effected. Adobe itself acknowledged the bug. “With 11.1.1, only...

A website called Orcasound lets you listen to orcas using hydrophones, which are underwater microphones. Scientists use these recordings to find and study whales, especially at night or in bad weather.

The team behind Orcasound hope that non-expert listeners will help quickly alert researchers to the presence of orcas, so they can send out boats to test fecal matter and leftover bits of prey, thereby getting a better sense of what the whales are eating.

If you like whales and you’re interested in citizen science, check out Orcasound.

Apple's iPad has been a problem for Apple for many years now. It's like a slow leak that will eventually sink the ship. Focused on making the iPad ever thinner seemed to be Apple's sole focus for years and that didn't do anything to motivate consumers to try the iPad beyond its early base. The iPhone/iPad revolution for growth is about to end due to shifting market conditions.

Hands-On With Apple's New 2018 Mac Mini

Apple in late October unveiled a refreshed version of the Mac mini, marking the first update to the company's smallest desktop machine in four years.

We managed to get our hands on one of the new Mac mini models, and in our latest video, we unbox it and share our first impressions on the revamped machine.

Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos.

The Mac mini's design hasn't changed, and it's still a 7.7-inch square box that's 1.4 inches thick, but it is available in a new Space Gray color rather than the traditional silver.

It's otherwise the same, but with the exception of a new selection of ports. The Mac mini is outfitted with four Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, an Ethernet port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

While the design is largely the same, the...

Apple Now Selling Refurbished HomePod for $299

The HomePod, normally priced at $349, is available in both white and space gray for $299, a $50 discount off of the regular price.

There is no HomePod listing on the main Apple refurbished site as of yet, but it should be added in the near future. For now, the HomePod can be purchased from the individual HomePod refurbished listing. Apple is still rolling out refurbished models, so the page doesn't work on occasion, but will...

Ming-Chi Kuo Cuts iPhone XR Lifecycle Shipment Estimates...

Noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has issued a new research note today, cutting his shipment estimates for the iPhone XR due to several factors. He believes that some of the decline will be offset by higher demand for iPhone XS and older "legacy" models, but he is still reducing his overall iPhone shipment forecasts by 15–20 percent for the first quarter of 2019.

We have reduced our iPhone XR shipment estimation from 100mn units to 70mn during the new product lifecycle (4Q18–3Q19) for the following reasons: 1) Negative impacts on consumer confidence from the trade war, especially in the Chinese market, 2) expectations from more users for more affordable XR or the dual-camera and narrower bezel design to be provided at the current price level, and 3) competition from Huawei's Mate 20 series.

Images via iFixit

To start, iFixit removed the display from the tablet and the first thing they noticed were the audio components of the new iPad Pro, made up of four woofers and four tweeters.

The speakers and logic board cover impeded access to the iPad Pro's A12X Bionic chip, but eventually iFixit accessed the full logic board. On it, they found the A12X Bionic SoC, 64GB Toshiba flash storage, two Micron RAM totaling 4GB,...

The day after Samsung's revelation, the U.S. Patent Office published a major foldable smartphone patent application from Samsung. When you compare the 2007 iPhone with the iPhone XS Max of today, evolution refined the form factor. The same will be true with foldable smartphones. They may start off a little bulky and end up being cool slick devices over time. Apple's CEO once promoted "Think Different" and on the foldable smartphone front, it's Samsung pushing the envelope as Apple safely watches from a distance.

Apple Development Conferences

There are a lot of Apple developers out there these days. And it often seems like few groups like to share information more than those who work in the Apple space. So where can you go to learn more about Apple development? There are a lots of websites and code camps, but what about annual conferences?

  • WWDC: San Jose, CA – This is the grandaddy of them all. Hear from the people who build the frameworks and IDEs directly! But registration is limited and no everyone can go to that one place at that one date and time of the year. Also, different conferences can give different perspectives, so even if you go to WWDC every year, it’s worth looking at some of these other conferences as a +1!
  • AltConf: San Jose – Everything from iBeacons to how to name a product. The big thing is that it’s held alongside WWDC so I mention it first. By developers for...
