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

AirPlay 2 is Apple’s followup to the original AirPlay Wi-Fi-based music playback standard. While Sonos popularized Wi-Fi-based multi-room audio playback, Bluetooth became ubiquitous, and multi-platform Wi-Fi audio standards spread in popularity, Apple lacked a competing story until AirPlay 2.

Messages in iCloud is also back in the iOS 11.4 beta. It allows you to store your iMessages in iCloud.

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...

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.

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.

16-inch MacBook Pro could be announced any day now

Rumors of the impending release of a 16-inch MacBook Pro refuse to die. 9to5Mac says “there’s growing evidence that we could finally be on the cusp of an unveil as soon as this week.”

The article says there’s talk on the grapevine that Apple will hold private press meetings any day now at a “dedicated location in New York City where it occasionally holds private briefings with members of the press to give presentations and offer hands-on demonstration time.” 9to5Mac concedes that, should there be such briefings, they could be for the previously announced modular Mac Pro and 31-inch Apple Pro XDR Display.

The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) is still holding out hope that the pro desktop, super-sized monitor, and the 16-inch MacBook Pro will all arrive at the same time.

A new ‌iPad Pro‌ for release as early as the first half of 2020 will feature a new module with two camera sensors, up from one on the current model, and a small hole for the 3-D system, letting people create three-dimensional reconstructions of rooms, objects and people,” Gurman writes. “The Cupertino, California-based technology giant also plans to add the sensor to new high-end iPhones later in 2020, along with 5G networking capabilities, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing unannounced products.

The new MacBook Pro comes with two or four external ports, depending on the model you pick. And the new MacBook Air has a pair of ports. But those ports are only of one type: Thunderbolt 3, which is compatible with USB-C.

But you probably have devices that use USB-A, Thunderbolt 1, Thunderbolt 2, DisplayPort, HDMI, or something else. How do you connect these devices? With an adapter.

If you’re planning to buy a new MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, make sure you set aside a considerable amount of cash for the adapters you need. Apple doesn’t include any in the box, except for a power adapter.

Your best bet is to get a combination dock, like the Satechi Slim Aluminum Type-C Multi-Port Adapter ($60 on Amazon). It connects via USB-C, and includes a USB-C pass-through port, two USB 3.0 ports, and an HDMI port with 4K (30Hz) support. With this, you don’t have to...

Apple's widely rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro is likely still coming based on recent supply chain checks by IDC analyst Jitesh Ubrani and Forbes contributor Brooke Crothers, but release timing remains unclear. Crothers is a former contributor to CNET, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal in Asia.

16-inch MacBook Pro concept

"We were expecting an announcement in October," Ubrani said in an email, according to Crothers. October came and went without an announcement, but Ubrani added that his research firm is "starting to see early signs" of the notebook within Apple's supply chain. "However, the timing of this is still uncertain," he said.

Crothers said he has heard similar, writing that "a source in Asia who talks to the Apple supply chain told me over the weekend...

Kuo: Apple Watch Series 6 Models to Feature Faster Perfo...

While the Apple Watch Series 5 lineup was released less than two months ago, rumors are already looking ahead to next year.

In a research note with investor firm TF International Securities, seen by MacRumors, noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that 2020 Apple Watch models will feature faster performance, improved water resistance, and improved wireless transmission for potentially faster Wi-Fi and cellular speeds.

Kuo believes all of these advancements will be made possible by Apple's switch to liquid crystal polymer or LCP material for the flexible circuit boards in next year's Apple Watch models, expected to launch in the second half of the year as usual. Series 5 models and earlier use a material known as polyimide or PI.

Dongshan Precision, Avary Holding, and Flexium Interconnect will be the primary LCP suppliers, according to Kuo.

While noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and others have claimed that Apple plans to release an augmented reality headset as early as 2020, a new report suggests that the head-mounted device may be a few years away.

Apple currently aims to release an augmented reality headset in 2022, followed by a "sleeker" pair of augmented reality glasses by 2023, according to The Information. The report claims the timeline was shared by Apple executives in an internal presentation to employees at Apple Park in October.

There's a vulnerability in the macOS version of the Apple Mail app that leaves some of the text of encrypted emails unencrypted, according to a report from IT specialist Bob Gendler (via The Verge).

According to Gendler, the snippets.db database file used by a macOS function that offers up contact suggestions stores encrypted emails in an unencrypted format, even when Siri is disabled on the Mac.

In this email, Gendler demonstrates that the private key has been made unavailable in Mail, rendering the message unreadable. It continues to be available in the database, though.

Gendler initially discovered the bug on July 29 and reported it to Apple. Over the course of several months, Apple said that it was looking into the issue, though no fix ever came. The vulnerability...

Query A Jamf Server From Within Slack

This project is a reference implementation to build a Slack interface to Jamf Pro. It could be used for most any REST endpoint though if you wanted to pull the logic for handling the Jamf URI structure. Because I’m still trying to figure out where to hide secrets in slack, it requires an API gateway. I’ll hopefully remove that requirement in a future iteration. If there is a future iteration. It’s really just meant for reference. Add to it, remove from it, mock it, whatevers… <3

Usage

Basically you send it a /q followed by an endpoint and it spits out json. Syntax is pretty much as follows:

/q 

As an example, let’s say you wanted to query computers for a list of devices, simply enter:

/q computers

Based on the list of devices, if you wanted to query for device id 8 then run:

Use Sidecar With Unsupported Macs

Sidecar is that spiffy new feature that allows you to extend your Mac desktop to an iPad. It’s cool but only officially supports the following devices;

  • Any 27-inch iMac from Late 2015 or newer
  • Any iMac Pro
  • All MacBook Pros since 2016
  • 2018 MacBook Air
  • Early 2016 12-inch MacBook (or newer of course)
  • 2018 Mac mini
  • 2019 Mac Pro

Here’s the thing, those limitations are set based on performance of the machine. The /System/Library/PreferencePanes/Sidecar.prefPane actually shows support for a couple of keys that allow you to use Sidecar even if your device isn’t one of these. Buyer beware though, if you end up with performance issues then run the same commands swapping out true with false and reboot.

First, we’ll set the AllowAllDevices key in the com.apple.sidecar.display defaults domain too true. This will enable the preference for all computers that can run macOS Catalina (otherwise you won’t have the...
