After years of frustratedly waiting in the dark and suffering through some painful periods of construction work, the new 2019 Mac Pro appears to finally deliver above and beyond what even the most optimistic had hoped for. But its appearance wasn't merely a whimsical executive decision made in response to a customer email, and is instead the latest deliverable of a long term strategy unfolding at Apple.

The Athletic reverses course on podcasts and submits...

A few months ago, I wrote about The Athletic, and I thought it would make a great acquisition target for Apple. When I originally wrote that article, I mentioned that the Athletic had recently launched a podcast section, but they were only available inside of their app and not dedicated podcast apps like Apple Podcasts, Overcast, or Pocket Casts. In recent weeks, they’ve reversed that stance and started submitting their shows to Apple Podcasts and Spotify, but only including some of the episodes as a free download. more…

Apple is continuing its PR blitz for Apple TV+ with Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard hitting the covers of the latest issue of Emmy Magazine, promoting the sci-fi thriller See. Apple’s production budget for See is believed to be in excess of $15 million per episode.

In the interview, Apple vice presidents Jamie Erlicht and Zack van Amburg (who run Apple’s TV+ efforts after being hired from Sony in 2017) compare the scope of See’s world-building directly to Game of Thrones: “can it be as epic as, say, a Game of Thrones? We answer that question early on with a resounding yes!”. See debuts as a launch show on Apple TV+, which means it premieres November 1st.

Apple Told Some Apple TV+ Show Developers Not To...

An anonymous reader quotes BuzzFeed News:
In early 2018 as development on Apple's slate of exclusive Apple TV+ programming was underway, the company's leadership gave guidance to the creators of some of those shows to avoid portraying China in a poor light, BuzzFeed News has learned.

Sources in position to know said the instruction was communicated by Eddy Cue, Apple's SVP of internet software and services, and Morgan Wandell, its head of international content development. It was part of Apple's ongoing efforts to remain in China's good graces after a 2016 incident in which Beijing shut down Apple's iBooks Store and iTunes Movies six months after they debuted in the country.

A spokesperson for Apple declined comment.

Apple's tip toeing around the Chinese government isn't unusual in Hollywood. It's an accepted practice. "They all do it," one showrunner who was not affiliated with Apple told BuzzFeed News. "They have to if they want to play in that...

I’ve been a happy Bose QC35 Noise cancelling headphone user since the day they came out. These were the first “consumer priced” ANC headset combos and have since been matched by excellent products from Sony and Apple’s Beats brand. But Active Noise Cancellation has always come at a price. In the case of the QC35s and Sony’s, prices start at $350 retail unless you find deals.

Convert File Encoding Types

Digging into old software, or software written on different systems, often ends up resulting in a mismatch in encoding types. Given how common this can be, most flavors of Linux and macOS come with a built-in utility for converting files between various encoding types in iconv. To use it, simply provide the source format as a -f and the target format as a -t. In the below example we’ll also bring a sourcefile.txt in using the < and kick out a targetfile.txt, or the file with the source converted using a >:

iconv -f KOI8-U -t utf-16 < sourcefile.txt > destinationfile.txt

You could also pipe the output of an echo into a screen if there isn’t that much text. In the above example we’re bringing in a file using an old Russian encoding scheme and kicking it out as UTF-16; however, there are dozens of encoding standard supported. To see a list of them, use –list with the command:

A question facing a lot of K–12 school districts this time of year is whether their devices can go just one more year. Budgets are being set (and likely looking to be cut), so keeping an iPad or Mac laptop deployment in place for another school year is a way to eliminate a costly line item in the budget. Is that a wise decision? Let’s look at the factors you need to consider before holding off on that new Mac or iPad device refresh.

PSA: Apple Mail Bugs Can Lead to Data Loss in macOS...

Michael Tsai, the developer of EagleFiler and the SpamSieve plug-in for Apple Mail on Mac, has written a blog post warning macOS users about potential data loss in Mail when upgrading to macOS Catalina 10.15.0 (build 19A583).

According to Tsai, he's heard from several users that updating Mail's data store from Mojave to Catalina sometimes says that it has succeeded, when in fact on closer inspection it turns out that large numbers of messages are incomplete or missing entirely.

In addition, users have reported the loss of message content when moving emails between mailboxes. From Tsai's post:

Moving messages between mailboxes, both via drag-and-drop and AppleScript, can result in a blank message (only headers) on the Mac. If the message was moved to a server mailbox, other devices see the message as deleted. And...

Chris Matyszczyk from ZDNet retells the draconian story of a Financial Times writer who wasn't able to prove she purchased a ticket for the London buses because her phone died (she used Apple Pay), which led to her being charged a criminal. An anonymous reader shares an excerpt from the report: Today's witness is Jemima Kelly. She's a writer for The Financial Times. Please don't let any personal thoughts about that get in the way of her story. You see, she just experienced a little technological nightmare. A cheery digital convert, she admits she often leaves the house without her wallet. But surely not without her iPhone. Apple Pay is, after all, a contemporary joy. It's right up there with Tinder in its ability to make your life easier.

Kelly, indeed, hops on London buses and uses Apple Pay to tap her payment instead of buying a ticket the old-fashioned way. Which, as she cheerily described, is easy unless a ticket inspector wanders by. Just after your iPhone's battery has...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: Google's October 15 hardware event is fast approaching, and in addition to the launch of the Pixel 4, Google Home Mini 2, Google WI-Fi 2, and a new pair of Pixel Buds, the show should usher in a new Pixelbook. We've known the new Pixelbook would be called the "Pixelbook Go," but other than a few details from Chrome OS commits, the device has mostly been a mystery. Google takes its title as "least secretive device manufacturer" very seriously, though, and recently 9to5Google managed to just get a Pixelbook Go ahead of the event. They took a bunch of pictures and video. Unlike the fairly unique design of the original Pixelbook and the Pixel Slate, the Pixelbook Go mostly just looks like a MacBook. 9to5Google got that vibe from the device in person, too, writing: "We can't fathom that this laptop won't immediately be labeled 'Google's MacBook.'" The one unique design aspect is the bottom, which is a brightly colored, ribbed pad...

iPadOS review: The iPad is dead, long live the iPad

Enlarge / iPadOS.

When we reviewed the 2018 iPad Pro, we were impressed by the power and potential of the hardware, but iOS 12 wasn’t up to the task of making the iPad a true content creation machine or a daily workhorse. We said it was time for Apple to branch out from iOS 13 with an iPad-specific operating system.

Just one year later, that’s exactly what Apple has done with iPadOS, which launched for modern iPads a few days after iOS 13 hit the iPhone and iPod touch. While iPadOS does not actually signify that big of a change under the hood, its new nomenclature is a statement of intent by Apple....

Bose and Sonos, both well-known speaker manufacturers, recently came out with new AirPlay 2-enabled speakers that are designed to work with Apple's latest ‌AirPlay‌ protocol and offer an alternative to products like the HomePod.

In our latest YouTube video, we went hands-on with the Bose Portable Home Speaker and the Sonos Move to see what the speakers have to offer and how they compare to one another.

Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos.

Both the Bose Portable and the Sonos Move are designed to offer a premium audio experience and are more expensive than the ‌HomePod‌. The Sonos Move costs $399 and the Bose Portable costs $349, but each company is known for its audio quality and audiophiles won't flinch at that price point.

iOS 13.2 Beta 2 Bricking Some iPad Pro Models,...

Following the release of iOS 13.2 beta 2 yesterday, some 2018 iPad Pro owners found that the update failed to install properly, ultimately bricking their tablets and requiring a full restore.

We've seen several complaints from ‌iPad Pro‌ owners who were affected by the issue, and in some cases, even a restore from DFU mode failed to work. From the MacRumors forums:

My ‌iPad Pro‌ 11" is in the same position, it failed during the update of iOS 13.2 beta 2. What you can try is putting it into DFU mode (press volume up, volume down, then hold power for 5 or so seconds) and plug it into iTunes via cable to restore it that way.

However, unfortunately mine gets an error when i try this so i have an Apple appointment tomorrow to get them to fix it.Amid these reports,...

Gurman on Catalyst’s Shaky Debut

Mark Gurman, writing for Bloomberg1:

But the first iteration, which appears to still be quite raw and
in a number of ways frustrating to developers, risks upsetting
users who may have to pay again when they download the Mac version
of an iPad app they’ve already bought.

I get this, and Gurman has reported previously that one goal of the Marzipan/Catalyst project is have universal apps that work across iOS/iPadOS/MacOS, the way that the exact same app can work on both iOS and iPadOS today. But Catalyst is a developer technology. Users have no idea what it is and shouldn’t need to. “You have to pay for iPad and Mac versions separately”...

According to Variety, Apple has set up its own internal production studio called “Masters” and will produce its first in-house series dubbed Masters of the Air.

The limited series is a follow-up to Band of Brothers (pictured) and The Pacific series that were executive produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. That duo is on board again, “which comes as no surprise given that Spielberg was a prominent figure at the Apple TV Plus launch event in March,” according to Variety.

Masters of the Air is based on the book by Donald L. Miller and follows the story of the American bomber boys in World War II who brought the war to Hitler’s doorstep. It will air exclusively on Apple TV+. Apple’s Masters production studio will be headed by worldwide video heads Zack...

iOS 13 and voice control

Amboy Manalo, iOS GadgetHacks:

With iOS 13, you can now quickly reboot your iPhone using Voice Control. If you haven’t set it up, open Settings, head to “Accessibility,” and select “Voice Control,” then tap “Set Up Voice Control” and follow the prompts.

Now, simply say “Reboot Device” (no need to say “Hey Siri” or anything first). When you do, you’ll see a prompt. Just say “Tap Restart,” and your phone will reboot.

This is fascinating and fun to play with. I can definitely see the value as an assistive tech. Take a few minutes and go through the steps, try this for yourself.

My bet is, somewhere there’s an official set of Voice Control verbs out there. Wondering if that list corresponds to a similar list for, say, Shortcuts.

    When Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller detailed the iPhone 11’s new camera abilities in September, he boasted, “It’s computational photography mad science.” And when Google debuts its new Pixel 4 phone on Tuesday, you can bet it’ll be showing off its own pioneering work in computational photography.

    The reason is simple: Computational photography can improve your camera shots immeasurably, helping your phone match, and in some ways surpass, even expensive cameras.

    But what exactly is computational photography?

    Following the demise of AirPower earlier this year, we’ve been left to look for third-party wireless charging alternatives once Apple officially exited the scene. Nomad has found a sweet spot in its place with two different wireless Qi charging pads offering support for multiple devices and Apple Watch. However, the idea of powering up to three devices simultaneously without wires has mostly escaped us to date. Nomad is announcing a new product today, the Base Station Pro, which does just that. Thanks to a new technology and partnership with Aira FreePower, Nomad may have just solved our AirPower woes completely. Head below for additional details, pre-order information, and more.

    A teardown of the U1 chip in the iPhone 11 has confirmed that it is Apple’s own design. There had been earlier speculation that Apple was using a Decawave Ultra Wideband DW1000 chip that has similar capabilities, offering precise radio-based positioning down to 10 cm.

    iFixit says Apple’s chip is a different design to the DW1000, but uses the same standards and is compatible with third-party devices using the Decawave chip…

    Apple’s Mac now has a 7.5% of the global PC [as in personal computer, not just Windows systems] market and 14.8% of the U.S. market on sales of 5.1 million Macs in the third quarter of 2019, according to the Gartner research group

    The company is now in fourth place among both global PC vendors (behind Lenovo, HP, and Dell) and U.S. PC vendors (behind HP, Dell, and Lenovo). According to Gartner, the Mac’s global marketshare shrank 3.7% year-over-year in quarter three globally, but grew 0.2% in the U.S.

    However, IDC says Apple has 6.3% of the global market on sales of 5 million Macs in the third quarter of 2019. That’s down 6.1% year-over-year, per the research group. IDC has the Mac in fourth place among worldwide PC vendors (behind Lenovo, HP, and Dell). IDC’s info doesn’t list U.S. specific data.

    The Apple TV+ streaming service is due to launch Nov. 1 at a price of $4.99 per month. However, you can get a free year’s subscription with the purchase of a new iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV. Add in those devices and the fact that some manufacturers of smart TVs (such as Samsung, Samsung, and LG are building in support for Apple tech such as AirPlay 2 and HomeKit) gives Apple TV+ a potential addressable base of...

    According to Fast Company, Apple is burning the midnight oil to have its in-house-built models ready and running by 2022. The article says that this is “a very aggressive timeline given all the development, testing, and certification work involved.”

    In July, it was announced that Apple and Intel had signed an agreement for Apple to acquire the majority of Intel’s smartphone modem business.  Approximately 2,200 Intel employees will join Apple, along with intellectual property, equipment and leases. The transaction, valued at $1 billion, is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2019, subject to regulatory approvals and other customary conditions, including works council and other relevant consultations in certain jurisdictions.

    A look at Gear4’s cases for Apple’s 2019 iPhones

    Gear4 has released several new and/or updated cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. I’ve had a chance to test out the $44.99 Holborn.

    It offers 13-foot drop protection thanks to D3O technology around the sides and backside of the case. (D3O is the same material used by the military and professional athletes, according to the folks at Gear 4).

    Despite its durability,  edge-to-edge protection, and enhanced back protection, it’s relatively svelte. The Holborn has a sleek, soft-touch finish that feels good and offers decent grip-ability. It’s also wireless charging compatible.

    There’s nothing earthshaking or groundbreaking about the case. But it’s slim, stylish, and protective. The Holborn is available in black, burgundy, and lilac.

    If you’re a regular user of the Personal Hotspot feature for iPhones and cellular-equipped iPads, you might wondered where the off setting went in iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1. It’s gone, but it’s not an error and you’re not just missing it.

    Apple in that release—not in iOS 13.0, but the 13.1 release for both platforms—rethought how it expresses Personal Hotspot’s use philosophically. In previous releases, you had the on-demand Personal Hotspot that could be turned on, put on standby, or turned off. There was also an Instant Hotspot feature, which allowed any of your iCloud-connected devices to select the Personal Hotspot even if it were set to Off or Off, But Discoverable.

    Scripting the Temp and Cache Directories on a Mac

    Ever see a weird folder like /var/folders/g0/lr10g_wx4t75s2hd5129qhkc0000gn/T/ and wonder why it’s there? Those are usually Darwin or shell temporary or cache directories. They are where those weird temp directories you need to access are written to and read from. Apple uses these to host volatile sql databases and a number of scripts use them to house a file and protobuffs prior to processing.

    You too can access them in your scripts when needed. The most common is a built-in shell temp that you can easily access just by echoing out the contents of $TMPDIR:

    echo $TMPDIR

    Darwin has some as well; most notably in DARWIN_USER_CACHE_DIR and DARWIN_USER_TEMP_DIR where each can be used for what their name denotes. The getconf command will provide the contents of each. For example:

    getconf DARWIN_USER_TEMP_DIR

    Reading from apps that start with that directory hierarchy can usually easily be programmatically done by calling the appropriate location. When...

    Apple has reportedly set an aggressive 2022 deadline to develop in-house 5G modems as part of a system-on-a-chip (SoC) design to be used in future iPhones and iPads, claims a new report today.

    According to Fast Company, Apple plans to have completed all the development, testing, and certification necessary by the new deadline to be able to include the modems in new iPhones the same year.

    However, given the arduous testing and certification process required after the chip design and fabrication is complete, a two-years deadline for the modem is "really pushing it," according to the report's source, who is said to have knowledge of Apple's plans.

    The main stumbling block is said to be the network optimization testing that's necessary to make sure the modem doesn't conflict with the wireless networks of other carriers. In addition,...

    How to use keyboard shortcuts in macOS Catalina

    You can save time when working on your Mac by using keyboard shortcuts. To use a keyboard shortcut, hold down one or more modifier keys while pressing the last key of the shortcut.

    For example, to use the shortcut Command-C (copy), hold down Command, press C, then release both keys. Mac menus and keyboards often use symbols for certain keys, including the modifier keys:

    Command ⌘

    Shift ⇧

    Option ⌥

    Control ⌃

    Caps Lock ⇪

    Fn

    Also, the Finder’s sidebar contains shortcuts to various commonly used folders. Each of the default selections has a keyboard shortcut. It’s listed in the Go menu and you can use it to jump to the correction location (this also works in Open and Save dialogs, as well).

    With Catalina, the Mac leans on Apple’s other devices

    Ever since the introduction of the iPod in 2001, Apple has had to navigate the intricacies of a multi-device ecosystem. In the earliest of days, that meant dealing with the iPod as an ancillary media device, reliant upon a Mac (or later a PC) for everything from activation to syncing media.

    Over the last twelve years, the Apple ecosystem has gotten only more complex, with the addition of iPhones and iPads, the Apple TV, the Apple Watch, AirPods, the HomePod, and more. And while the Mac may be the elder statesperson of this assemblage, it’s found its responsibilities decentralized. No longer does the iPhone or iPad require a Mac just to function; newer devices like the Apple Watch and HomePod never have.

    PerimeterX, a company has offers protection from malicious activities, has released “Third-Party Code: The Hidden Risk in Your Website,” a survey of security professionals that underscores the lack of awareness people have about vulnerabilities in third-party client-side scripts and the unaddressed threats that can result.

    Industry estimates state that the typical website is comprised of approximately 70% third-party code. The survey found that while almost all websites are running at least some third-party client-side scripts, 60% of those surveyed estimated the proportion of third-party code to be significantly lower – a dangerous misconception.

    “Today, a company’s website is a primary avenue for interaction with customers and for significant revenue. As a result, they are a large target for cybercriminals, and website attacks show no sign of slowing down. Enterprises must protect their web applications from client-side attacks to prevent both the risk of massive...

    Apple rereleases watchOS 5.3.2, allows Apple Watch...

    If you have a less-than-entirely-new iPhone and an Apple Watch Series 4, this will come in handy.

    Apple has issued a second release of its watchOS 5.3.2 operating system, this time allowing for owners of iPhones that cannot upgrade to iOS 13 or later to continue using the wearable device with their older smartphone. 

    The update, released on Wednesday, is targeted specifically for the Apple Watch Series 4, and follows after a similar update that shipped on September 26 for the Apple Watch Series 1, Series 2, and Series 3. The update effectively brings the Series 4 in line with the earlier three generations. 

    Although Apple has moved on to watchOS 6, this version of the operating system allows the Apple Watch Series 4 to continue functioning with the iPhone.

    The update also includes performance and bug fixes alongside maintaining compatibility. In addition, the update includes a fix for a recent exploit discovered by Google Project Zero that could allow a...

    Apple CEO Tim Cook has written to employees defending the company's controversial decision to pull an app used by Hong Kong protestors to coordinate gatherings and avoid large concentrations of police.

    Apple removed HKMap Live from the App Store on Thursday following the app's approval last week, which itself only came after an internal review of the company's original decision to reject it. Apple's reversal came after the Chinese Communist Party's flagship newspaper criticized Apple for letting the app into its store.

    Report: Apple ‘pushing it’ with goal to launch...

    It is pretty common knowledge at this point that Apple is going to release 5G iPhones next year, perhaps across all three of Apple’s flagship new models. However, the 2020 iPhones will be using Qualcomm modems.

    Apple’s in-house silicon team has had the challenge of cellular modems on its radar for a while. A report from Fast Company today corroborates Apple’s ambition to release its own 5G modem chips in less than three years time. The report says the timeline is aggressive, even with Apple’s $1bn acquisition of Intel’s modem business under its belt.
