The State of the iPad in 2018

It’s hard to believe that the iPad is now eight years old. I still remember hearing the rumors of the Apple tablet, watching the keynote, and being shocked to see the price at $499. When you go back and watch the original introduction, Steve Jobs asks the question: “Is there room for a third category of device in the middle?” more…

Review: 2018 Mac mini – Apple’s most versatile Mac [...

The Mac mini is back, regaining its rightful place as the most versatile Mac in Apple’s entire computer lineup. The long-rumored update, which was announced during the midway portion of last week’s iPad Pro event, is exciting for a number of reasons.

For starters, the Mac mini gets brand new, highly-capable 8th-generation Intel CPUs. The CPU lineup starts with a rather anemic, but still way faster than the last Mac mini, quad-core 3.6GHz Core i3. The mid-tier CPU option is a 3.0GHz 6-core Core i5 with 4.1GHz turbo boost, while the highest configuration adds a 3.2GHz 6-core Core i7 that turbos up to 4.6GHz.

While the CPU upgrades were much needed, the chip enhancements are arguably not even the most exciting thing about the Mac mini. That award goes to the four Thunderbolt 3 ports on the machine’s rear. This opens up Apple’s smallest Mac to an ever-growing world of expandability, making it seem as if anything’s possible for what was once Apple’s forgotten Mac.

Apple Blocks Linux From Booting On New Hardware With...

AmiMoJo writes:
Apple's new-generation Macs come with a new so-called Apple T2 security chip that's supposed to provide a secure enclave co-processor responsible for powering a series of security features, including Touch ID. At the same time, this security chip enables the secure boot feature on Apple's computers, and by the looks of things, it's also responsible for a series of new restrictions that Linux users aren't going to like.

The issue seems to be that Apple has included security certificates for its own and Microsoft's operating systems (to allow running Windows via Bootcamp), but not for the certificate that was provided for systems such as Linux. Disabling Secure Boot can overcome this, but also disables access to the machine's internal storage, making installation of Linux impossible.

Analyst: 2019 iPhones to adopt MPI antenna tech

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple’s 2019 iPhones will adopt MPI (modified polyimide) antenna technology instead of LCP (liquid crystal polymer).

LCP is a thermoplastic organic material that can be used as a low-cost dielectric material for high-volume large-area processing methods that provide very reliable high-performance circuits at low cost.

MPI is a compact, polyamide-based compact, thin, and flexible design with characteristics are perfectly suitable for integration into flexible displays for WLAN and Bluetooth connectivity. It should improve both costs and production yields — and perhaps lead to flexible iPhones.

Changes this is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 90%. Apple is certainly interested in anything that will lower costs while...

Apple has announced a repair service for some iPhone X and 13-inch MacBook Pro models with, respectively, touch issues and solid state drive problems.

The display, or part of the display, does not respond or responds intermittently to touch. Or the display reacts even though it wasn’t touched

Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider will replace the display module on eligible devices, free of charge. No other iPhone models are part of this program. You can find more details here.

The iPad mini has had an interesting history. When Phil Schiller first showed us a look at it in 2012, I was hooked immediately. Despite not having a Retina screen, I was in love with it. It was a great size for reading books, watching video, and browsing the web. In some ways, it showed us the path to larger iPhones. Fast forward to 2018, and we are only on the 4th generation of the iPad mini. The iPad mini 4 was released over three years ago, and we still don’t have a replacement. Despite being three years old, it’s still a great iPad. more…

Mac Mini Teardown Reveals User-Upgradable RAM, But...

iFixit has released their teardown of the new Mac mini, providing a look inside the portable desktop computer. Some of the notable findings include user-upgradable RAM and soldered CPU and SSD. Mac Rumors reports: While the RAM in the previous-gen Mac mini from 2014 was soldered to the logic board, the new Mac mini has user-upgradeable RAM, as discovered earlier this week. As seen in older iMacs, the RAM is protected by a perforated shield that allows the memory modules to operate at a high frequency of 2666 MHz without interfering with other device functions, according to iFixit. To upgrade the RAM, the shield can be removed by unfastening four Torx screws.

Other silicon on the logic board of this particular Mac mini includes the Apple T2 security chip, a 3.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i3 processor, Intel UHD Graphics 630, 128GB of flash storage from Toshiba, an Intel JHL7540 Thunderbolt 3 controller, and a Gigabit Ethernet controller from Broadcom.

SMARTReporter 3.1.17 - Hard drive pre-failure...

SMARTReporter is an application that can warn you of some hard disk drive failures before they actually happen! It does so by periodically polling the S.M.A.R.T. status of your hard disk drive. S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a technology built into most modern hard disk drives that acts as an "early warning system" for pending hard disk drive problems. SMARTReporter can notify you of impending hard disk drive failures by sending e-mails, displaying a warning dialog or executing an application. The current status of your hard disk drives is always displayed through the customizable menu item. Because SMARTReporter relies on the S.M.A.R.T. implementation of OS X, it only supports ATA, SATA or eSATA hard disk drives, if you want S.M.A.R.T. support for your FireWire hard disk drive, send feedback to Apple. Please note that a S.M.A.R.T. alert doesn't mean that your HDD will completely fail for sure, nor can S.M.A.R.T. catch all...

Advertising Fraud on Android Apps Uncovered

Buzzfeed News has discovered a  sophisticated digital advertising fraud scheme targeting Android devices, in which ads were shown to bots, not real users. The article estimates that those behind the scheme “stole close to $10 million from advertisers who used Google’s ad network to place ads in the affected websites and apps”. The fraudulent scheme operated across a  large network of Android apps, including some aimed at children.  It raises major questions about the reviews process used by Google. The article noted that “the Google Play store has a less rigorous app review process than Apple’s App Store.” Here’s some of what Buzzfeed News found:

An investigation by BuzzFeed News reveals that these seemingly separate apps and companies are today part of a massive, sophisticated digital advertising fraud scheme involving more than 125 Android apps and websites connected to a network of front and shell companies in Cyprus, Malta, British Virgin...

Apple Headphones Might One Day Auto-Detect Right/Left

A new patent reveals that Apple is trying to use microphone to solve the problem of people wearing headphones the wrong way round. Typically our headphones are marked either L and R or having some other kind of indication as to which side is which. Apple has a new patent, reported by AppleInsider,  for a “system and method for automatic right-left ear detection for headphones.” It would use the microphone in the headset to discover the headphone’s orientation and alter the left and right channels accordingly. The patent details a system of five microphones per ear cup, including one inside. Here’s a little insight into what might be on offer in the future:

By listening to the voice of the user, and monitoring the volume of the voice by each microphone, the headphones can determine which edge is closest to the...

How iOS Helps a Blind Veteran Return to the Water

Here is a feel-good story for a Friday. Apple has made public the story of Scott Leason—a US Navy veteran and keen surfer…who happens to be blind. The story details how by using an iPhone XR, and the VoiceOver application in particular, as well as an Apple Watch, Mr Leason is able to undertake a number of tasks and partake in his beloved water sports. He said,“When I’m at the end of a line behind a boat just like anybody else, I forget I’m blind. And then when I come into the beach and there’s people around [his dog] Snickers and I go yeah that’s my seeing eye dog and I got a board in my hand and they go, ‘you’re blind?’ That’s a cool feeling.” It might be easy for some to be cynical about Apple promoting this, but for most of us, it is equally easy to forget how crucial technology and the accessibility tools modern devices have are to people with a variety of disabilities.

We look forward to expanding our assortment of Apple and Beats products globally.”

While the 2018 Mac mini is remarkably powerful and remarkably good value for what it does, you can't call it inexpensive. Now that it's been launched, however, there is an argument for Apple to do something to make it more affordable for education and for the now seemingly-abandoned switcher market.

Sprint Might Be Throttling Skype, Say Researchers

An ongoing study by Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts claims that Sprint is throttling Skype without telling customers.

Choffnes and his team analyzed more than 719,417 tests conducted by 100,000 users across 135 countries, and discovered that wireless carriers routinely throttle streaming video applications. While carriers often claim this kind of throttling only occurs in response to network congestion, evidence suggests the practice is often tied to efforts to upsell users to pricier plans.

We need net neutrality more than ever.

iFixit tears down the Mac mini and MacBook Air

iFixit

On schedule as always, iFixit has documented teardowns of the new Mac mini and MacBook Air and given them each a repairability score. The Mac mini is an improvement over the 2014 model in a few ways. The MacBook Air has some positive points for user serviceability, but it requires a significant teardown to do much.

Starting with the Mac mini, iFixit found that after opening the enclosure, you just have to unscrew and remove the fan to get inside. The logic board can be removed without special tools. Unlike the 2014 Mac mini's RAM, the RAM in this model can be replaced. It's covered by a metal cage, but once you unscrew...

Free! Process and Edit Videos with VideoProc and you...

Our friends at Digiarty are back with a new Mac and Windows app called VideoProc that’s the best tool we’ve seen for doing video processing. Today we’d like to tell you about the advantages of processing your video with VideoProc, let you download the app for a free trial, and give you a chance to win an iPhone XS, Apple AirPods and more!

What’s Video Processing?

There are a lot of video converter apps in the Mac world, but not that many video processing apps. What’s the difference? Converter apps are used to take video in one format and convert it into an optimum format for another platform. For example, think of taking a DVD and converting it to a file that’s optimized for an iPhone. Video processing apps are much different, as they are designed to do a lot more with video files, like edit, resize, and adjust those files.

How to download your Flickr photo library and...

For much of its time under Yahoo, Flickr suffered benign neglect, even though a small team of developers kept it alive and advanced in often tiny increments. After 13 years, Yahoo finally made a solid decision about Flickr, its photo-hosting website: It sold it. 

SmugMug, the professional photography oriented company, bought Flickr in April 2018. On November 1, 2018, SmugMug announced changes to its free and paid (or “Pro”) tier. SmugMug said that the 1TB of storage that Yahoo gave free-tier users is not sustainable. Instead, SmugMug will let free-tier users retain 1,000 images and videos of any size (even at the maximum 200MB per image).

On February 5, 2019, SmugMug will delete all images and media on free accounts after the 1,000 newest photos and movies. These are permanent deletions: Paying for a $50-a-year Pro account after that won’t restore the images. (SmugMug currently offers a 30 percent discount on the Pro account.)

USPS Informed Delivery Vulnerable to Identity Thieves

The USPS Informed Delivery Service is vulnerable to identity thieves. The services lets you see a preview of your mail on the web and mobile, and this week the U.S Secret Service issued a warning about it.

The internal alert — sent by the Secret Service on Nov. 6 to its law enforcement partners nationwide — references a recent case in Michigan in which seven people were arrested for allegedly stealing credit cards from resident mailboxes after signing up as those victims at the USPS’s Web site.

According to the Secret Service alert, the accused used the Informed Delivery feature “to identify and intercept mail, and to further their identity theft fraud schemes.”

iFixit's MacBook Air teardown reveals Apple...

iFixit has completed its customary teardown of the new MacBook Air, and to its (and our) surprise, it's not completely unrepairable. Whether it's a sign of easing standards or a holdover from the old design remains to be seen, but if you buy one, you might actually be able to fix it on your own.

Some of it, anyway. When Apple released its new MacBook Air, we pretty much knew the RAM and storage wouldn't be upgradable, and that's still the case here. Apple hasn't had a laptop with easily-replaceable components since 2012, and the MacBook Air's size is a dead giveaway that Apple isn't interested in letting people take it apart. The RAM and storage are soldered to the motherboard, so you'll need to buy what you need from the outset. Apple offers twice as much RAM (16GB) for $200,...

∞ The new Apple Pencil

Ever since I saw that first Apple Pencil 2 reveal, I’ve been struck by the genius of having the Apple Pencil stick to the side of the new iPad Pro, giving it a secure place to live and keeping it from rolling away. But most importantly, it makes charging so much easier.

I’m fascinated by this design choice and have been reading every review I can find. A couple of review points jumped out at me.

First, there’s this review from 9to5Mac’s Zac Hall. Zac loves the fact that the new Apple Pencil sticks to the iPad case and charges inductively, but:

One early concern, however, is that the magnetic charging and attachment side is on the right of the iPad Pro when holding it with Face ID at the top center. If I were right-handed, this would be ideal as Apple Pencil would always be there to grab and start writing with as needed.

As a left-handed person, I find that...

Apple Highlights How iPhone Allows Blind Veteran and...

Apple today shared a story about how the iPhone's accessibility features enable blind veteran and surfboarder Scott Leason to live independently.

Scott Leason surfboards at Mission Beach

A veteran of the U.S. Navy, Leason was blinded in 1993 after seven years of service. After years of adapting to his new normal, he received an iPhone 5 in 2012, along with training from Sarah T. Majidzadeh, assistant chief of blind rehabilitation at the Tibor Rubin VA Medical Center in Long Beach, California.

Leason is one of many individuals who are blind or have low vision who rely on the iPhone's built-in VoiceOver screen-reading software for daily tasks.

"It's a lot easier to navigate with the phone," Leason told Apple for its story. "I think a lot of the visually impaired prefer the iPhone because they can do everything on it. And...

Kris Wu’s iTunes takeover happened “fraudulently”,...

Variety:

A strange thing happened on the iTunes U.S. store on Monday (Nov. 5) when Kris Wu, a Chinese-Canadian actor and artist, practically swept the Top 10 songs chart.

And:

It seemed curious that Wu, whose album “Antares” had yet to be released in China, would have such momentum on a U.S. chart. While he’s a household name in Asia, in America he’s comparably an unknown. Also, Wu’s tracks weren’t streaming in significant numbers which was reason enough for some industry insiders to cry foul.

And:

According to a well-placed insider, Wu’s album sales were acquired fraudulently and will not count toward the iTunes sales chart reported to Nielsen and disseminated by Billboard. The determination was made to “suppress those sales numbers” on Wednesday afternoon following patterns of high-volume purchases on iTunes, first of the explicit version of “Antares,” and then of the clean version.

An odd story, but not quite what it appears. Read on:...

I remember when the Today at Apple initiative was first announced, I mentally shrugged. It was, I thought, just a rebranding of the workshops that had existed for many years. I thought it was an excellent idea to draw attention to them – I’ve long been a big fan – but Apple seemed to be presenting an old idea as if it were a brand new one.

But subsequent news and a recent visit to the revamped flagship London store in Covent Garden has persuaded me that the initiative is actually a much bigger deal. Apple has transformed what used to be a fairly well-kept secret into something which is now key to its brand image …

Vallum is a little tool that helps you monitor and block application connections. It is able to intercept connections at the application layer, and hold them while you decide whether to pass or block them. Vallum's interface is very simple and is icon-based. Its default configuration is not intrusive, and it does not require any interaction or specific networking knowledge or skills. Just drag an app's icon from the Finder into the main Vallum window to block it. To change Vallum's attitude and interaction level, you just have to play with the very few options available. Intercept apps that leak data on the network, drag apps' icons to create firewall rules, run the firewall with one mouse click: Vallum is friendly, it stays in a corner of your Mac's menu bar on top of the screen, it does not pollute your Dock and your desktop, it features a simple interface that everybody can use, and it's powerful because it lets you create complex setups with jails, mixed rules...

iFixIt tears down the 2018 Mac mini

iFixIt, which tears apart tech gadgets and looks at their insides so you don’t have to, has down a teardown of the new Mac mini, which they call a “monster upgrade.”

Removable RAM, oodles of ports, and a serious fan make the iFixit gang wonder why this mini didn’t earn a "Pro" moniker. Teardown highlights include: 

  • You don’t need a tool to remove the logic board.

  • The RAM is held captive under a perforated shield. Also seen in older iMacs, this EMI cage lets the memory sticks operate at a high frequency without interfering with other device functions.

  • The processor and storage remain firmly rooted on the logic board, as do the many ports. If any one of those breaks, it’s taking the whole logic board with it. 

In the end, the mini earned a 6/10 repairability score from iFixIt.

Can Film Emulator Apps Like VSCO Replace Actual Film?

The Phoblographer writes about why film emulator apps like VSCO and iPhone don’t replace traditional film photography. My argument is that yes, they have. Film isn’t dead just like vinyl isn’t dead, but both have been relegated to a small group of people. I’ve tried to use VSCO as an editor for years, but I never stuck with it until they introduced Film X. Now I use VSCO for 90% of my own editing. You can write about how things like film and vinyl make you feel all artsy-fartsy, and how iPhone photographers aren’t real photographers. But the photographer’s goal is to capture the world, and you should use the best tools you can in service of that goal. Whether those tools are film, a DSLR, or a disposable camera, the end result is that you created something.

The 2018 Mac mini iFixit teardown is up, and the company gives the new incarnation of Apple’s smallest Mac a repairability rating of 6/10. That’s significantly better than the 3/10 the company gave the new MacBook Air in its teardown of that.

It says that the machine is pretty easy to access, with one tool being nothing more than a pair of thumbs …

Apple’s upcoming over-ear headphones may use HomePod...

One of the key features of Apple’s HomePod speaker is the beamforming technology used to adjust the sound output to the shape of the room, and using those same microphones for a neat Siri trick. By cancelling out the music output, Siri commands can be easily heard by the speaker even when it is blasting out music at full volume.

A new Apple patent application, published today, suggests that Apple may be seeking to use the same basis of that beamforming tech in its rumored over-ear headphones, to achieve two things …

How to use tabbed windows in macOS Mojave

macOS Mojave provides tabs to apps that allow for multiple windows. Tabs are available in such Apple apps as Mail, Maps, TextEdit, Pages, Keynote, and Numbers. And the feature works with third-party document-based apps and the Finder.

To take advantage of macOS Mojave’s tabbed windows, open a couple of documents in the same app. Look at the top left side of your Macs screen. Go to Window > Merge All Windows to group the open windows together as tabs. Once these docs are grouped in a single tabbed window, you can click the plus button to the right of the last tab to create new blank documents.

Tabbed document groups work just the same as tabs in Safari, so you can switch documents with a click, and drag to rearrange them. Or you can hit the CMD+T shortcut on your keyboard.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple's support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)

Parallels Desktop 14 for Mac review: Supercharged...

Virtualization software like Parallels is usually associated with running Windows on a Mac, but virtualization can be used to also run other versions of macOS. I’ve been able to safely tinker with Apple’s latest developer or public beta by using virtualization to run them right inside the current stable release of macOS. I also keep older operating systems around to occasionally run software like Final Cut Pro 7, which was orphaned with last year’s macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

Parallels Desktop 14 for Mac is now available and is fully optimized for macOS Mojave. Version 14 focuses less on whiz-bang new features and instead wisely focuses on where it counts: Under-the-hood performance improvements. You’ll notice the difference each and every time you launch the application, which is the fastest it’s ever been by as much as 80 percent, according to the company’s marketing claims. In this case, they have good reason to boast—on...

If you just snagged a 2018 MacBook Air, this could come in handy.

Apple on Thursday released its macOS 10.14.1 Mojave Supplemental Update for the 2018 MacBook Air.

The code makes unspecified “stability and reliability” fixes for Airs running macOS 10.14.1. It’s available as a direct download from Apple’s website, or throught the Updates tab in the Mac App Store.

The update measures 1.3 gigabytes, although it isn’t specifically clear as to what the update contains or what bugs it might fix.

The new Air is Apple’s first major update to the notebook since 2015, incorporating a Retina display, a slimmer chassis, Touch ID, and Thunderbolt 3 ports, among other enhancements.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

2018 MacBook Air battery now user-replaceable

If you’ve suffered through the Parade of Glue and Adhesive that was involved in replacing the batteries on Apple’s MacBook Air notebooks since 2012, you’re going to love this.

Apple’s new MacBook Air battery can be replaced by the owner in the notebook.

In all other MacBook and MacBook Pro models with a Retina display released since 2012, when a customer has required a battery replacement, Apple has replaced the entire top case enclosure, including the keyboard and trackpad. This is because the battery is glued into the top case in Mac notebooks with Retina displays.

While the battery in the new MacBook Air is still glued into the top case, a support document shows that Apple will be providing Genius Bars and Apple Authorized Service Providers with tools to remove the battery and reinstall a new one with no top case replacement required.

The trackpad in the new MacBook Air can also be individually replaced.

We’ll have to wait until the...

Apple patent shows the tech giant wants to help you...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20180317839) for “adjusting alarms based on sleep onset latency.” It involves human sleep detection on devices such as the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.

Most people require a certain amount of sleep at night to feel well rested the following day. Often, when a person works, the person will set an alarm to wake them up at an appropriate time so that they can arrive at work on time. To get sufficient sleep, the person will go to bed at a time that allows for an appropriate amount of sleep (e.g., 7 hours, 8 hours, etc.). 

However, most people do not fall asleep right away when they go to bed. So, even if the person goes to bed at an appropriate time to provide 8 hours of sleep, the person often only ends up with 6 or 7 hours of sleep when the alarm goes off in the morning. Apple has an idea to change this — although it might make you late for work or school!

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “In some implementations, a...

Chips ahoy: The Mac’s transition to Apple processors...

The recent Apple event in New York City had a lot going on, and we’re still working through all the new products the company showed off. But as the dust clears, there’s one lasting impression about which I feel remarkably certain.

There’s a sea change coming.

John Gruber alluded to this in his piece at Daring Fireball about the new MacBook Air:

Look at the iPad’s A12X compared to the iPhone’s A12 and you can see how much attention Apple is paying to the iPad’s system architecture. There’s no reason they won’t pay as much or more attention to the Mac’s custom silicon when they switch from Intel to their own chip designs. It should be downright glorious.
