It’s been over a month of Apple Watch Series 5 ownership, which has given me plenty of time to assess its value in our Apple Watch Series 5 video review.

Series 5 is very much an iterative upgrade over its predecessor, perhaps more so than any other Apple Watch upgrade thus far. In fact, it shares so much in common with the Apple Watch Series 4 that they could easily be confused for the same device outside of a few obvious differences.

Although Apple Watch Series 5 is ultimately a big step in the right direction for the hardware, such growth isn’t totally devoid of growing pains. Should you upgrade from a previous generation Apple Watch? Our hands-on Apple Watch Series 5 video review provides the details. more…

Apple has applied for another patent (number 20190324274) — one of a dozen or so — that hints at features for the rumored “Apple Glasses,” an augmented reality/virtual reality head-mounted display expected to debut next year.

The patent filing is dubbed “head-mounted device with an adjustable opacity system.” A head-mounted display displaying augmented reality content may overlay computer-generated images on real-world objects. Apple says that, if care isn’t taken, the computer-generated images may be difficult to see against the real-world objects, real-world objects may distract a viewer, or other issues may arise with displayed content. The tech giant wants to avoid this with its device.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “A head-mounted device may have a transparent display. The transparent display may be formed from a display unit that provides images to a user through an optical coupler. A user may view real-world objects through...

If a newly filed patent by Apple (number 20190324561) ever comes to fruition, we could see an Apple Pencil with a built-in display and scanning capabilties. The patent filing is dubbed “stylus with display.”

It involves an Apple Pencil that sports an on-board display that indicates to a user a color that will be applied when operating the stylus with an external device such as an iPhone or iPad. The display on the Pencil can be positioned to provide an indication of the color.

For example, the display can be provided at or near a tip that is used to contact the external device. What’s more, the Pencil can provide an ability for the user to manually select a color, which can then be shown on the display of the Pencil and transmitted to an iPhone or iPad for application. The Pencil can also include the ability to scan a color from a physical object, with the color being shown on the display of the stylus and transmitted to the external device...

Nimble’s cases for the new 2019 iPhones offer nothing revolutionary when it comes to durability, but they offer one feature that make them worth your consideration: they’re apparently the first 100% recycled phone case. 

The Bottle Case collection, which I’ve test driven, is made completely from recycled plastic bottles. Plus, with each Bottle Case sold, Nimble will donate 5% to organizations protecting the planet’s oceans and Marine life.
The Bottle Case — ranging in price from $35.96 to $40.95, depending on the size of your iPhone — is designed with a durable rPET fabric to provide a comfortable hand grip. The protection offered is adequate, but not all-encompassing. 

The Bottle Case 2 has all the features (and price range) of the Bottle Case, but is more water resistant and sports a built-in card and ID holder.

Morgan Stanley Predicts Apple TV+ Could be a $9...

Apple's services business is set to grow by 20 percent next year, boosted by its forthcoming Apple TV+ streaming service, according to the latest predictions by Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty (via CNBC).

In a new investor note, Huberty predicts that ‌Apple TV‌+ will grow into a $9 billion business by 2025, despite increasing competition in the streaming market and even if only 1 in every 10 Apple user subscribes to the service:

"With an attractive price point at $4.99/month, and wide initial distribution to the Apple installed base via the bundled free year offer, we estimate ‌Apple TV‌+ can become a $9B revenue business with 136M paid subscribers by FY25, assuming just 1 in every 10 Apple user pays for the Service by FY25."Huberty also notes that for ‌Apple TV‌+ to have a more material...

Got a 32-bit app in Catalina? You don’t have to...

Catalina marked the end of 32-bit apps for macOS, something Apple had provided over a decade of transition help with and two years of warnings about for consumers. Nonetheless, people with older apps they hadn’t launched in a long while were still taken by surprise, judging by email from readers and forum posts.

Macworld offers a guide on how to find outdated apps to figure out what to get (if anything) to replace them, both before you update to Catalina and afterwards.

However, if you no longer need an app that can’t launch in Catalina, you’re not obliged to get rid of it. Apps, launch agents, daemons, helpers, and other components no longer work, but they won’t do harm. And it might be a mistake to delete apps that only have modules that aren’t yet 64-bit compatible.

How to use QuickPath in iOS 13

iOS 13 QuickType keyboard now includes QuickPath, so you can swipe your finger from one letter to the next to enter a word without removing your finger from the keyboard.

Alternate word options appear in the predictive bar, so you can quickly choose a different option. You can swipe or tap to type interchangeably, so you can choose what’s most convenient even if you’re mid‑sentence.

To use just place a finger on the virtual keyboard and swipe. For example, if you wanted to type "Apple," you'd start by placing a finger on the "A" key and then drawing a line to the "P" followed by "P" and “L”, etc. until you connect every letter in the word. Once you're done, lift your finger off of the keyboard. Entering the next word -- or words -- is done the same way.

QuickPath is enabled by default after installing iOS 13. However, you can disable if if you wish by going to Settings > General > Keyboard > Slide to Type.

Swathes of AT&T customers in the U.S. are said to be experiencing problems accessing voicemail, based on reports on social media and the network's support forums.

The issues have apparently been going on for several weeks, but while AT&T says it's aware of the problem, the company hasn't yet provided a detailed explanation or given an indication of when it might be fixed.

Late on Wednesday, The Verge highlighted a 40-page thread in AT&T's support forums that's full of users relating their experiences trying to access voicemail, to no avail. Android users are being met with error messages, while iPhone users are unable to view the Visual Voicemail feature to...

Recent Mac Configuration Utility updates for...

The updated Mac Pro is apparently arriving soon.

According to a reliable source, Apple on Thursday updated its Mac Configuration Utility for authorized technicians with instructions on how to place the new Mac Pro in DFU mode, according to a reliable source. For existing Macs, this software is used to pair components like the logic board to the Apple T2 security chip after a repair is completed. 

The source stated that the release of this information hints at Apple releasing the new Mac Pro in the very near term. Apple previewed the updated desktop at WWDC 2019 in June, and said that the computer will be available this fall, but did not specify a release date.

The 2019 Mac Pro will feature up to 28-core Intel Xeon processors, up to 1.5TB of ECC RAM, up to 4TB of SSD storage, and up to AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo graphics with 64GB of HBM2 memory. The computer also has eight PCIe expansion slots for maximum performance, expansion, and configurability. Other new...

Apple Pay surpasses Starbucks to become the most...

Apple Pay has taken the title as the most popular mobile payment platform in the United States.

Per new data from eMarketer, Apple Pay has surpassed Starbucks in the US.

Starbucks adopted mobile payments relatively early on, and incentivized users with rewards and features such as ordering ahead. As such, Apple Pay and other mobile payment platforms have largely been playing catch up with Starbucks until now.

Apple Pay’s user base is expected to reach 30.3 million users in the United States during 2019. Starbucks is expected to have 25.2 million users this year, followed by Google Pay at 12.1 million and Samsung Pay at 10.8 million.

The eMarketer report cites Apple Pay’s wider adoption as a point-of-sales system given its NFC compatibility. The Starbucks app, uses barcodes as opposed to NFC.

Starbucks itself has also adopted Apple Pay support in-store and in-app. For instance, in the Starbucks mobile app, you can use Apple Pay to reload your...

OVPN review: A solid performer, with very good...

Sometimes we run into VPNs that are doing things that might sound a little gimmicky. OVPN is one of those services, but surprisingly its “gimmick” means a high level of privacy and anonymity that comes very close to Mullvad, our gold standard for VPN privacy.

OVPN wants to know very little about you. You can share your email as a backstop for account recovery, but you don’t have to. Instead, all the company wants is a username and password. The company also keeps data tracking to a minimum and even goes that extra step with how it configures its servers to keep your information private.

Quicker Port Scanning

The Mac and most distributions of Linux come with netcat built in. The Mac distribution is known as nc. You can run a super-quick port scan of another host without installing any third party tools. I’ve been using stroke to run my port scans for a long time. I am a fool. Netcat’s better. Don’t be like me. Use nc:

Why iOS 13 and Catalina Are So Buggy

David Shayer, who worked as a software engineer at Apple for 18 years across iPod, the Apple Watch, and Apple's bug-tracking system Radar, among other projects, looks at the current iOS and macOS releases and tries to work out why they are so buggy. He writes: 1. Overloaded Feature Lists Lead to Schedule Chicken: Apple is aggressive about including significant features in upcoming products. Tight schedules and ambitious feature sets mean software engineers and quality assurance (QA) engineers routinely work nights and weekends as deadlines approach. Inevitably some features are postponed for a future release, as we saw with iCloud Drive Folder Sharing. In a well-run project, features that are lagging behind are cut early, so engineers can devote their time to polishing the features that will actually ship. But sometimes managers play "schedule chicken" since no one wants to admit in the departmental meeting that their part of the project is behind. Instead, they hope someone else...

iPod Turns 18: Here's What People Thought in...

Today marks the 18th anniversary of Steve Jobs unveiling the original iPod at a small event on Apple's Infinite Loop campus. While the iMac started Apple's renaissance in 1998, it was the launch of the iPod in 2001 that truly set Apple on a path towards becoming the world's most valuable company.

Jobs famously pitched the original iPod as offering "1,000 songs in your pocket." The combination of its 5GB hard drive and 0.75-inch thickness was impressive at the time, with the device also featuring a two-inch screen, up to 10 hours of battery life, a FireWire port, and the first iteration of the iconic click wheel.

"With iPod, Apple has invented a whole new category of digital music player that lets you put your entire music collection in your pocket and listen to it wherever you go," said Jobs in Apple's press release from October 23, 2001. "With iPod, listening to music will never be the same...

Most Americans don’t support breaking up big tech...

New research by Grail Insights suggests that while "Break Up Big Tech" is a red hot political topic, consumers don't agree. The strategic insights consultancy conducted a survey of 1,000 U.S. consumers to find out how people feel about some of the practices and behaviors of six tech giants: Apple, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and Uber.

Americans are concerned about how these companies handle personal information and how their size and influence limits competition and innovation. For example, 71% are concerned about how Facebook handles personal data. 49% say Amazon intentionally stifles competition and 41% say the same about Apple. 

However, even though Americans have concerns, most do not support breaking up these companies. When asked their level of agreement with the...

The one where Apple tried to buy its way into...

Bloomberg:

Van Amburg and Erlicht promised to make two seasons of Aniston and Witherspoon’s show without shooting a pilot episode first, and they offered more than $250 million, including more than $1 million per episode for each actress, according to people familiar with the terms. This was unprecedented. At the time, the biggest TV stars earned about $500,000 each per episode.

And:

At Apple’s first Hollywood premiere, in October, Van Amburg and Erlicht addressed the sense of whiplash head-on. “Zack and I knew how to create a premium, high-quality, great show,” Erlicht said. “What, in retrospect, we didn’t know how to do was create from scratch a premium service at Apple.”

Another behind the scenes take on Apple TV+. Snarky headline. Interesting read. Apple is eating an incredibly steep learning curve here. Launch is about a week away.

After a week of sales of its latest iPhone models, data from the Kantar research group shows that Apple’s iOS accounts for 18.9% of all smartphone sales across the five major European markets (EU5), with new launches helping it to see positive year-on-year growth across all five major European markets. 

Conversely Android saw its share fall in EU5 ( down 1.5% points, though this trend was reversed in U.S. where it was up.8% points. Despite Android OS’s overall fall in market share in European markets, Samsung was the fastest growing major brand in the region.

How to allow untrusted Shortcuts in iOS 13

The Shortcuts app is a great way to automate tasks that requires several steps on iOS. You can create your own shortcuts, or you can sift through the Shortcuts Gallery to find and install shortcuts that others have created.

You can also find Shortcuts on the internet, but if you try to install them, you might run into a problem that prevents the Shortcut from installing. You could see this message:

IDG

When you see that message, you might think, “O.K., I’ll just go in the Shortcuts settings and allow untrusted shortcuts.” But if you’ve never run a shortcut before and you go into Settings > Shortcuts in iOS, you won’t find any security settings to adjust.

iPadOS and the features and performance found in the latest iPad Air, iPad, and iPad Pro models have made the best case yet for the iPad as a device for content creating—not just consumption. But the base iPad, priced at under $400, was until recently very much stuck in the old mode.

Apple patent filing involves representing virtual...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 10,453,267) for a “method for representing virtual information in a view of a real environment.” It’s one of several patent filings that hint at features of the anticipated “Apple Glasses,” an augmented reality/virtual reality head-mounted display.

In the patent filing info, Apple says that, so far, approaches to such devices “have the disadvantage that they do not permit a simple integration of other users in the AR scenes.” Also, most systems based on GPS and compass have the disadvantage that these devices cogently have to be provided and that there may be great inaccuracies occurring, the company says. Apple thinks it has a better method.

Here’s the summary of the invention: “A method for representing virtual information in a view of a real environment comprises providing a virtual object having a global position and orientation with respect to a geographic global coordinate system, with first pose...

What’s next for the MacBook Pro?

If you believe the rumors, we’re very close to the arrival of a new MacBook Pro, one that might close the door on the current generation of laptops that were first introduced three years ago. Whatever the specs are on that putative product, it’s worth taking a moment to consider what Apple’s priorities might be when designing a new generation of pro laptops.

If history is any indication, if Apple omits your favorite feature from the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro, it will be years before you’re able to even hope for a change in direction. Since I’ve learned to deal with the disappointment life can throw your way, what better time to provide a MacBook Pro priority list than right before most of these items will be invalidated?

Apple Pay Overtakes Starbucks as Most Popular Mobile...

Apple Pay has overtaken the Starbucks mobile app to become the most popular mobile payment system in the United States, claims a new report out today.

According to eMarketer, ‌Apple Pay‌ became the market leader last year, when 27.7 million Americans used the app to make a purchase. Since then, however, ‌Apple Pay‌ has grown even faster than expected.

In 2019, ‌Apple Pay‌ will have 30.3 million users, or 47.3 percent of mobile payment users. That compares with Starbucks' 25.2 million customers via its mobile app in the same year, representing 39.4 percent of mobile payment users.

"‌Apple Pay‌ has benefited from the spread of new point-of-sale (POS) systems that work with the NFC signals ‌Apple Pay‌ runs on," said eMarketer principal analyst Yory Wurmser. "The same trend should also help Google Pay and Samsung Pay, but they will continue to split the Android...

Rumor: Apple testing smaller Face ID notch, wider...

Apple is reportedly testing different methods of creating a smaller Face ID notch for the 2020 model iPhones, while also looking at a wider antenna to support 5G.

The series of reports comes from reliable source Benjamin Geskin, who says that Apple has created different prototypes of 2020 model iPhones to experiment with new Face ID options. The options appear to be concerned with reducing the size of the notch, either in height or width.

“Apple is testing a few Face ID prototypes with new optics,” he writes, “some are smaller in width, some are narrower to fit the top bezel.”

Geskin also noted that Apple is revising the antennas on the 2020 models to support the 5G protocol.

“2020 iPhone prototypes include wider antenna lines (>1mm) for 5G,” he continues. “Instead of plastic lines it will use a new material (glass, ceramic or sapphire).”

Gaskin also reported that Apple is looking to abandon the Lightning port. In its place, and instead of...

NetNewsWire 5 review: Venerable Mac RSS news reader...

I’ve been an ardent fan of RSS news readers for a long time, but lately find it easier to consume information on Twitter in bite-sized chunks; you can browse headlines in near real-time, clicking links to read full articles of interest from a web browser.

A well-designed reader app does the same, but once you add an avalanche of feeds, it becomes time-consuming to slog through the digital noise every day. When I heard Mac reader app NetNewsWire had been resurrected by the original developer, it felt like a good time to dust off my feeds and give RSS another shot.

Coming home

NetNewsWire 5 is the latest incarnation of an application dating back to 2002, when developer Brent Simmons unveiled what would soon become one of the most popular Mac news readers. Three years later, the software was acquired by NewsGator, who kept Simmons on board, adding synchronization for good measure.

Idle Speculation on Whether Apple Is Going to Hold...

Last year Apple held an event in Brooklyn on October 30; invitations to the media were sent on October 18. In 2016, they held an event on October 27 at the Town Hall theater on the old Infinite Loop campus; invitations to that event were sent October 19.

We’re running out of time for Apple to hold an event in October. Still possible, of course — those 2016 invitations only went out eight days in advance. But I think if it were going to happen, the invitations would’ve gone out today at the latest.

But what about new products? We should see the new Mac Pros...

Today Universal Audio took the wraps off of two new Thunderbolt 3 desktop audio interfaces, which are ideal for Mac audio creatives. Universal Audio’s Apollo Twin X features two high quality Unison-enabled microphone preamps and is available in either a duo or quad core real time UAD plugin-processing configuration. The more substantial Apollo x4 brings four Unison-enabled preamps to your desktop and comes with quad core real time UAD processing, which makes it perfect for tracking larger projects.

We previously did a review of the smaller UA Arrow, a single-core bus-powered Thunderbolt 3 audio interface that’s ideal for traveling and/or working on smaller projects that don’t demand as many preamps or plugin-in overhead. The Apollo Twin X and Apollo x4 are significant steps up from the UA Arrow, but bring the same vast library of...

Apple receives award for its sustainability efforts

"It is our most successful, innovative and agile companies that have a responsibility to lead on climate and sustainability because they have the greatest capacity to act in a transformative way," Cook said in the speech. "If you are an executive who has not developed an innovation strategy to address your impact on the climate, then you are failing in your duties as a leader.”

Unwired Planet seeks $8 billion from Apple over...

Another day, another lawsuit. A company named Unwired Planet is seeking $8 billion from Apple over standard-essential patents, according to FOSS Patents.

This isn’t the first legal brouhaha involving Apple and Unwired Planet. In April 2017, Unwired Planet announced that it had settled its patent infringement suit with Apple, ending more than four years of litigation that Apple said was frivolous and Unwired said was worth an estimated $33 million.

In July 2016, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit handed down an opinion vacating in part a 2015 summary judgment that found Apple not in infringement of certain cellular and voice recognition patents by Unwired Planet. The company sued Apple in 2012, claiming a variety of Apple products infringed 10 of its patents for cellular data transmission, voice recognition systems, device...

iPhone SE 2 rumors: iPhone 8 body with an A13...

The iPhone SE was a popular phone. When it debuted in in 2016, it solved a couple of unique problems for Apple and its users. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus had just been released the previous September, with high prices and a new larger design. The iPhone SE took the processor and camera from that phone, but stuffed it into an older, smaller, cheaper design—the body of the iPhone 5s.

This gave users a phone with all the prowess and power of the latest model, with a smaller size and much lower price. 

Even since then, users have been clamoring for an update; an iPhone SE 2 that would give them the latest technology in a tiny, affordable package. Well, the latest rumors state that Apple may indeed be gearing up for a sequel to the iPhone SE (which may or may not carry a different name). It would essentially be an iPhone 11 stuffed into an iPhone 8 body without 3D Touch, making it powerful but much more affordable and a little bit smaller, but not the tiny 4-inch size some...
