Sure, some users will appreciate iOS 13's dark mode, but features that relate to privacy, quality of life, and user advocacy are likely to be the ones that make the biggest difference for people when Apple's new iPhone, iPad, and iPod software arrives later this year.

To that point, uninstalling an app to which you have a paid subscription in iOS 13's latest beta release will lead to a prompt to potentially unsubscribe from that app. This might be a good idea because odds are decent that if you're deleting the app, you're not planning to use the related service anymore.

Of course, that...

What if Plants Could Be Smart Home Devices?

What if plants could be smart home devices? That’s the idea of Harpreet Sareen and Pattie Maes in their cyborg botany research.

These experiments led the researchers to possible future applications that include sending notifications—the plant might jiggle to alert you when your package is delivered, for instance—or as a motion sensor, which could help you keep track of your pet or be applied to security systems.

Cool idea. When most people talk about “invisible interfaces” they usually mean things like smart clothing or using your voice like with a HomePod. Now if only trees transmitted Wi-Fi…

Dish Network Nearing Deal for Boost Mobile as T-...

Dish Network is close to securing a deal to pay $6 billion for Sprint's Boost Mobile brand and wireless spectrum, reports Bloomberg.

Sprint is selling Boost Mobile in an effort to unload assets to gain regulatory approval for its upcoming merger with T-Mobile. The two companies have been aiming to sell Boost Mobile to appease U.S. regulators who believe the merger raises antitrust concerns.

The United States Justice Department wants Sprint and T-Mobile to ensure there continues to be a fourth major carrier in the country as the combined T-Mobile and Sprint company would leave just AT&T and Verizon as the other major carriers.

Sprint and T-Mobile's combined company, set to be called T-Mobile and led by John Legere, would have close to 100 million customers, putting it second only to Verizon.

The recent announcement by Apple highlighting the features of iPadOS really pointed out one thing — the iPad, and especially the iPad Pro, is becoming more of a laptop replacement than ever. A number of accessory manufacturers have come out with docks for the iPad Pro, but most are simply re-branded USB-C hubs for the MacBook line. Kanex did something completely different, and today announced the 6-in-1 Multiport USB-C Docking Station for iPad Pro. It works with both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models (3rd generation) of the iPad Pro and retails for $99.95.

So, what does this 6-in-1 dock include? USB-C Power Delivery, SD and micro-SD card readers, a 4K HDMI port, a USB-C passthrough port, and a 35mm (1/8-inch) audio out jack. What I love about the design and what makes it so unique is that it clamps onto the upper right corner of the iPad so it’s out of the way — many of the other...

The mechanism became functional on Monday when Apple seeded the second beta of watchOS 6 to developers.

Apple still leads the global premium smartphone market, but the company’s declining shipments has pulled down the global smartphone premium segment. Data from Counterpoint Research’s Market Monitor Service for quarter one (Q1) of 2019, shows that Apple’s shipments fell 20% year-on-year in Q1 2019, resulting in an 8%  year-over-year decline for the global premium segment ($400 and higher). 

However, as Apple is losing ground, Samsung is gaining share. During the quarter, Samsung ended up with one-fourth of the global premium segment, its highest ever share over the past year. This was also the first time when Samsung launched three devices instead of the usual two in its S series, thus covering wider price points.

You care more about your privacy than you think

Charlie Warzel, New York Times, writing about this experiment by Harvard researcher Dan Svirsky:

Svirsky ran a series of tests where he had participants fill out online surveys for money and made them decide whether to share their Facebook profile data with a survey taker in exchange for a bonus (in some cases, 50 cents). In a direct trade-off scenario, Svirsky found that 64 percent of participants refused to share their Facebook profile in exchange for 50 cents and a majority were “unwilling to share their Facebook data for $2.50.” In sum: Respondents generally sacrificed a small bonus to keep from turning over personal information.

And:

But things changed when Svirsky introduced the smallest bit of friction. When participants were faced with what he calls “a veiled trade-off,” where survey takers had to click to learn whether...

This is the new look and feel of the post-iTunes way of showing an iOS device plugged into your Mac. Just as you’d expect if you plugged an external drive into your Mac, your plugged in device will appear in the Finder’s sidebar.

Excellent job by Stephen Hackett laying all this out. This looks like a very clean implementation by Apple, a nice step forward.

Apple files for two patents for an ‘avatar creation...

Apple has filed for two patents (number 10,325,416 and 10,325,417) for an “avatar creation user interface” for Animoji and Memoji.

Animojis are one type of this other multimedia content, where a user can select an avatar (e.g., a puppet) to represent themselves. The Animoji can move and talk as if it were a video of the user. Animojis enable users to create personalized versions of emojis in a fun and creative way.

Memoji is the name used for iOS’s personalized “Animoji" characters that can be created and customized right within Messages by choosing from a set of inclusive and diverse characteristics to form a unique personality. 

Both patents involve creating and editing avatars, and navigating avatar selection interfaces. In some examples, an avatar feature user interface includes a plurality of feature options that can be customized to create an avatar. In other examples, different types of avatars can be managed for use...

Checking out what’s new with iOS 13 Beta 2

Follow the headline link to the release notes, then search for “New Features”. Rinse and repeat. So much to see.

One particular nugget I can’t wait to take for a spin:

Audio sharing is compatible with AirPods (1st generation or later) and PowerBeats Pro. iPhone 8 or later, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2nd generation or later), iPad Pro 11-inch, iPad Pro 10.5-inch, iPad (5th generation or later), iPad Air (3rd generation), iPad mini (5th generation), or iPod touch (7th generation or later) is required. (51331268)

One definite benefit to keeping those first gen AirPods around if you upgrade to gen2 or the PowerBeats Pro.

Perfectly matching the sleek design of the iPhone X series, the solid stainless steel provides stable support. There’s a silicon support to protect your device from scratches, as well as an anti-slip silicone pad on the bottom. What’s perfect is that the StandONE is portable, so you can take it with you for hands-free viewing of your favorite TV shows, movies, or YouTube adventures.

Libra, Facebook’s Cryptocurrency, Coming 2020

Facebook provided a first look at its forthcoming cryptocurrency, Libra, Tuesday. It said the service could be with users as early as 2020. The Guardian posted on a rundown of the announcement.

Libra is being touted as a means to connect people who do not have access to traditional banking platforms. With close to 2.4 billion people using Facebook each month, Libra could be a financial game changer, but will face close scrutiny as Facebook continues to reel from a series of privacy scandals. It could also be a welcome lift to Facebook’s profits: analysts are suggesting Libra could be a huge moneymaker for Facebook, arriving as its growth slows. Technology to make transactions with Libra will be available as a standalone app – as well as on WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger platforms – as early as 2020. It will allow consumers to send money to each other as well as potentially pay for goods and services using the Facebook-backed digital currency instead of...

If you’re a sports-playing klutz like me, it’s easy to scratch the screen of your pricey Apple Watch. If you’re playing a team sport, you should simply take it off so you don’t whack someone in the face with it. But, of course, you’ll want to leave it on during workouts, so you can track your progress.

If you’re afraid of marring your Apple Watch screen during such activities, one solution is the $49 glass+ 360. Available in black, olive, and grey, it provides edge-to-edge protection for the smartwatch. Its full-screen adhesive (yep, adhesive) preserves touch-sensitivity so your watch responds as expected to touches, taps, and swipes.

The glass+ 360 has two parts. One is the adhesive “InvisibleShield” layer that glues to the Apple Watch display. I found it tricky to apply without leaving air bubbles...

There’s got to be the name for the paradox that occurs when you’re told by the Mac App Store that you both have an update for a free or purchased app and you can’t install it. Maybe it’s the Apprisoner’s Dilemma? You might experience this no-win situation when you see a message that says “[app name] can’t be installed on [device] because [OS X/macOS] version 10.[X] or later is required.”

This situation occurs when you’re running an older version of macOS than the minimum required for the latest version of the program’s updated code. App developers who routinely revise their apps earn our thanks for adding features, keeping them up to date with the latest system changes, and fixing bugs.

What’s new in Apple Maps in iOS 13

Apple has a bad reputation with maps. Seven years ago, Apple replaced Google Maps with its own Apple Maps service in iOS 6, and the rollout was nothing short of disastrous. Apple Maps was inferior to Google Maps in every way: features, stability, accuracy, performance—you name it. It took two years to really clear out the bugs, and Apple has spent the last several years languishing behind Google with a dated, less-detailed data set and a dearth of features. About the only thing Apple Maps has going for it is that it respects your privacy.

With iOS 13, Apple Maps may finally turn the corner. Whether it will be a superior mapping solution to Google Maps remains to be seen, but the beleaguered service may finally close the gap enough that you won’t need to bother with installing the Google Maps app anymore. Here’s what you can expect from Apple Maps with the rollout of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 this fall.

MicroLED shipments in 2019 and 2020 are expected to total less than 1,000, according to business information provider IHS Markit. However, with manufacturing costs plunging during the coming years, microLED pricing will drop as well, allowing the technology to gradually find acceptance in applications including smart watches, televisions, augmented-reality systems and smartphones.

The 6.1-inch OLED model is apparently the successor to the iPhone XR and will support LTE only. The new 6.7-inch and 5.4-inch phones would support 5G mobile data.

The report’s 5G timeline syncs with expectations in the rumor mill, while the size specifications seem on point as well.

It’s thought that the 5G compatibility in the 2020 iPhone would support the current leading standards, and function with both sub-6GHz and mmWave Technology. Millimeter wave spectrum is what is being deployed across the United States.

Kuo’s report indicated that Apple’s in-house 5G baseband chip won’t be ready until 2022, leaving the company dependent on Qualcomm baseband chips to connect to high-speed 5G cellular...

YouTube Kids Rejected by…Kids

Four years ago, You released a kids-only version. The idea was to keep those under 13-years-old off the main site. The problem, Bloomberg News, found, is that lots of kids don’t want to use it.

Not many kids use YouTube Kids, and those who do don’t stick around. Several of the most popular channels on the main site, which has more than 2 billion monthly users, specialize in programming designed for young kids, but that doesn’t mean they are free of advertising or screened for safety. One, Cocomelon, a channel of nursery rhymes, has more than 50 million subscribers. That’s double the weekly audience for all of YouTube Kids, which is used by more than 20 million people a week, according to a company spokesperson. (Much of the audience for a channel like Cocomelon could be parents trying to keep up with popular rhymes, a spokesperson said.) Children who do watch YouTube Kids tend to shift over to YouTube’s main site before they hit thirteen, according to...

Mad Macs: No enthusiasm for the Mac Pro

Apple has failed again to deliver exactly what someone wants! When will the company learn?! It’s very simple: you read the online manifesto and then you get to work! How much simpler could it be?

Writing for The MacObserver, John Khelt decries Apple and its pundit-enablers.

“Mac Pro: All Apologies, Signed Apple Pundits.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Jason and Aaron.)

God I hate Apple pundits.

They never talk about what I want them to talk about. I am the last good Apple pundit.

rekordbox 5.6.0.0017 - Professional DJ music...

rekordbox is the best way of preparing and managing your tracks, be it at home, in the studio, or even on the plane! It allows you to import music from other music-management software using the Bridge function, or by simply adding them into the software for management. rekordbox will work out the BPM and allow you to set hot-cue and loop points into the track, utilizing a full beat grid view in advance, as well as color-coding your music and adding all the ID3 information so it appears automatically later on any rekordbox-enabled Pioneer DJ player.

Nintendo's newest mobile game, Dr. Mario World, is set to launch on iOS and Android devices on Wednesday, July 10, Nintendo announced on Twitter this evening.

Nintendo has launched a website for Dr. Mario World, complete with videos on the gameplay. Like the original game, Dr. Mario World is a match three, where the goal is to clear viruses from the board by making matches.

Players need to eliminate all of the viruses before running out of a set number of capsules. Scoring is based on how many capsules are left at the end of a level. Nintendo says there will be five worlds at launch, with more to be added in the future.

[Sponsor] Kolide: User Focused Security For Teams...

Many of today’s fastest growing companies owe their success in-part to a culture that centers around transparency, personal responsibility, and most importantly, employee happiness. However, companies also need to secure their endpoints, and often do so at the expense of these values. Too often we’ve seen teams install intrusive management and security products on their employee’s devices.

At Kolide, we believe you don’t need to spy on your users or cripple their devices to meet your compliance and security goals. To that end, we recently launched a new product that integrates with your Slack team and messages your users directly when their Mac, Windows, and Linux devices are not up to spec. Your users will receive clear instructions about what is wrong and step by step instructions that will fix it. They can even confirm in real-time that they resolved the problem, right in Slack.

This simple premise of keeping your users in the loop and making them a part of the...

Since Steve and I can’t cover everything, at the end of each week day, we’ll offer this wrap-up of news items you should check out.

Apple is now taking reservations for this summer's free Apple Camp for kids ages eight to 12. It’s a three-day program held at your local Apple retail store.

Everything New in iOS 13 Beta 2: SMB Server...

Apple this morning released the second iOS 13 beta for developers, addressing bugs, introducing new bugs, and adding and refining iOS 13 features.

There are no super exciting new changes in the second beta of iOS 13, but several features that were not functional in the first beta are now working. All of the changes we've found so far are below:

- SMB Server Connectivity - One of the new features in iOS 13 is an option in the Files app to connect to server using SMB. This feature wasn't working in the first beta, but is functional in beta 2, so iOS 13 users can do things like connect to a home NAS.

- APFS Drives in Files - APFS formatted drives are now supported by the Files app.

- Downtime - According to Apple's release notes, the Downtime feature in Screen...

Rumor: first 5G iPhone will arrive next year

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple release three iPhones next year (as it will this year) with 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models having 5G, and the 6.1-inch model sticking with LTE.

He predicts that Qualcomm will be the 5G supplier in 2020 for Apple. The 5G connectivity is expected to not just include the sub-6GHz network, but also mmWave. mmWave is a sensing technology for detecting objects and providing the range, velocity and angle of these objects.

Today, mm wave frequencies are being used for applications such as streaming high-resolution video indoors. However, the tech is purportedly almost ready to make its public debut. The objective with mmWave is to increase the data bandwidth available over smaller, densely populated areas.

Apple looking to attract talent for Oscar worthy...

Apple has been approaching “elevated” directors and other film talent in recent months to talk about bankrolling projects with Oscar-winning potential, reports The New York Post. Unnamed Hollywood sources say the tech giant is looking to spend $5 million to $30 million per project and release about six films annually.

“They are taking meetings and hiring,” one agency source told The Post, adding that the meetings are being generated by the company’s original feature films unit, headed by Matt Dentler, formerly of iTunes Movies.

The source described Apple’s new film ambitions as “Focus Features-esque award contenders,” referring to critically acclaimed movies like BlacKkKlansman, Boy Erased, and Dallas Buyers Club.

This is all tied to the Apple TV+ streaming...
