Apple Daily Report: Lady Gaga removes her duet with...

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. 

Engadget reports that Lady Gaga has removed a song from her 2013 album Artpop on iTunes and Apple Music. The song in question, "Do What U Want," features a performance from disgraced hip-hop performer R. Kelly, who is accused of multiple sexual crimes, and can no longer be streamed or purchased from Apple's music services. Artpop is still available on both, but the album just moves from track six to track eight, as if the song never existed.

In an internal memo distributed to Apple Authorized Service Providers and obtained by MacRumors, Apple has indicated that Late 2012 model 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs will be added to its...

Possibilities of a Triple-Lens iPhone Camera:...

Following in the footsteps of Huawei and likely Samsung, Apple is widely rumored to release at least one new iPhone model with a triple-lens rear camera in 2019. That model is now believed to be the next generation of the iPhone XS Max.

A render of the alleged triple-lens design has even surfaced this week, complete with what would surely be a polarizing design:

Apple Might Debut 3 New iPhones in 2019

Apple is planning to release three new iPhone models this year, including a device to succeed the newly-created XR model, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday, citing unidentified people familiar with the matter. From a report: Apple will unveil direct successors to last year's iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, The Wall Street Journal is reporting. The iPhone XR, which is believed to have been the least popular of the three, will be updated with a model that comes with the same LCD display and similar design, according to the report. Apple is also considering adding a triple-lens camera system to one of the 2019 models in a bid to compete with Samsung and others that are readying similar camera systems, the Journal's sources said.

On Getting Started With Regular Expressions

Dr. Drang, regarding Jason Snell’s tale of using BBEdit and Excel to create a working RSS feed for an old podcast, “Don’t Fear the Regex”:

Although I do often write short programs for text munging, I
typically resort to that only if the problem requires more than
just large-scale text editing or if I expect to be repeating the
process several times. And even then, I usually start out by
playing around in BBEdit to see what searches, replacements, and
rearrangements need to be done. It’s a convenient environment for
getting immediate feedback on each transformation step.

(And if you expect to do a series of text transformations often
and really don’t want to get into writing scripts in Perl or
Python or Ruby or whatever, BBEdit’s Text Factories...

Thunderbolt 3 adapter guide: How to connect an...

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

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

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

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

Several Apple witnesses are testifying during the trial, which has led to the leak of some interesting, previously unknown information.

Apple supply chain executive Tony Blevins today said (via Reuters) that Apple considered purchasing 5G LTE modems from companies that include Samsung, MediaTek, and Intel for use in its 2019 iPhone lineup.

2019 iPhones Could Feature Support for Wi-Fi 6

Apple's upcoming 2019 iPhones could feature support for Wi-Fi 6, Barclays analyst Blaine Curtis said today in a CES wrap-up report.

Wi-Fi 6, otherwise known as 802.11ax, is the next-generation Wi-Fi standard following 802.11ac.

The new standard brings higher data rates, increased capacity, better performance in dense environments like concerts and sporting events, and improved power efficiency to better conserve battery on smartphones, tablets, and other battery-powered devices.

Set to be finalized in 2019, Wi-Fi 6 will also be beneficial to homes that have many internet connected smart products.

Many Wi-Fi 6 products were shown off at the Consumer Electronics show this year, including Netgear's new 802.11ax mesh Wi-Fi system.

First-Generation iPod Shuffle Turns 14 Today

Today marks the 14th anniversary of the unveiling of the first-generation iPod shuffle, presented by former Apple CEO Steve Jobs on stage at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco. On January 11, 2005, Apple debuted the first-of-its-kind iPod shuffle, which completely lacked a display, weighed 0.78 ounces, and held up to 240 songs (on the 1GB model) that would be played randomly.

Image via Wired/Getty Images

At the Expo, Jobs called the iPod shuffle "smaller and lighter than a pack of gum," and touted the device's low-end 512MB model, which ran for $99 in the United States and could hold up to 120 songs (the 1GB version cost $149). "With most flash-memory music players users must use tiny displays and complicated controls to find their music; with iPod shuffle you just relax and it serves up new combinations of your music every time you listen," Jobs said.

Connected to my LG UltraWide 5K2K Display, the MacBook Air averages around 1-2 frames per second in Rocket League, and similarly abysmal scores in Unigine Heaven and Valley benchmarks. That’s no fault of the MacBook Air, as it’s a thin and light portable laptop built around maximizing battery life. In other words, it was never intended to be a gaming machine.

But if you own a MacBook Air and are looking for ways to get more out of your laptop, then an eGPU setup within a Windows Boot Camp environment can go a long way towards making that a reality. Watch our hands-on video walkthrough for the step-by-step details. more…

Apple plans to release three new iPhone models later this year, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal today:

    LG’s new 17-inch Gram laptop makes me want a 17-inch...

    At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), LG was showcasing its  ultralight $1700 17-inch Gram laptop that, as I’ve noted previously, makes me long for a new 17-inch MacBook Pro. 

    LG’s laptop (pictured) sports an eighth generation Intel Core i7 processor, a 17-inch WQXGA (2560 x 1600) IPS display, a Thunderbolt 3 port, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD, and a 72Wh lithium battery that purportedly runs for 19.5 hours for $1,700. It also has three USB 3.1 ports, a micro-SD port, an HDMI port, and Ethernet port. 

    Imagine if Apple released a similar laptop with FaceID, a bezel-less screen, optional cellular connectivity, and expandable memory so you could use third party memory and not have to pay Apple’s outrageous prices. 

    The original 17-inch MacBook Pro debuted in April 2006; it shipped in a single dual-core 2.16GHz configuration, with 1GB of RAM and an a 120GB hard drive, for $2,...

    Apple has filed for a patent (number 20190012072) for “character recognition on a computing device” that shows the company is working on further improvements to the handwriting tech on iOS devices — and is even considering bringing it to macOS.

    In the patent filing, the tech giant notes that user interaction with devices such as computers and other electronic computing devices has increased significantly in recent years. These devices can be computers, tablet computers, televisions, and multimedia devices.

    Interaction with these devices can be performed using various input devices, such as touch screen displays, touch-sensitive surfaces, remote controls, mice and other input devices. Touch-sensitive surfaces and touch screen displays, in particular, have become increasingly popular input devices, as has providing handwritten input using such input devices.

    The most important thing to do if your Mac has a...

    SSDs (solid-state drives) offer extremely reliable, fast, and consistent performance over many, many years. They aren’t subject to problems that can harm even the best-designed modern hard disk drives (HDDs): exposure to magnetic fields or the failure of moving parts inside the drives.

    But SSDs remain expensive many years after they first appeared. Nearly all other aspects of computation—from processors to RAM to LCD displays—have dropped dramatically in price while improving in quality and performance year after and year. SSDs initially followed that curve, especially for lower-capacity drives, but tapered way off. The cost of manufacturing higher-capacity memory chips used in SSDs hasn’t dropped much in recent years.

    If you’re looking to meander towards India in the near future, you’ll like this.

    Apple has incorporated turn-by-turn navigation to Apple Maps in India. It also gave customers in the country the ability to order taxis from within the app via popular ride-hailing services.

    A number of users in India, especially New Delhi and Bengaluru, noticed that the feature had arrived. An Apple spokesperson confirmed the update.

    At present, users can now order a taxi from either Uber or Ola, which account for the two biggest ride-hailing apps in the country.

    India is, of course, a crucial market for Apple, and one where it sees the potential for a lot of growth. At the moment, around 90% of smartphones sold in the country run on Android. In September 2018, regulations postponed the introduction of Apple Pay there.

    The future of Apple is playing well with others

    Apple’s not known for being the most outward-looking organization. For much of its existence, it’s seemed to project an aura of indifference—verging on ignorance—of what goes on outside its walls. That’s in large part by design: Apple has always had a carefully cultivated veneer of being in a league of its own, eschewing any need to pay attention to what its would-be rivals were up to.

    Even when it has deigned to work with others, Apple generally presented an attitude of doing this as a favor to its partners, bestowing some small iota of the Apple brand and mojo upon them. (Remember its deals with Motorola and HP in the 2000s?) There’s no better example than porting iTunes to Windows—arguably one of the best business decisions Apple made, since it brought the iPod to scads of PC users—a move that Steve Jobs famously, if not decorously, described as “giving a glass of ice water to someone in hell.”

    Backup and Restore a Parallels VM Programmatically

    Parallels comes with a nifty command line tool called prlctl installed at /usr/local/bin/prlctl when the package is installed. Use the prlctl with the backup verb in order to run a backup of a virtual machine, followed by an option of a name or ID of a registered virtual machine. For example, if the name of the VM was Krypted Server then you could run the following:

    prlctl backup ‘Krypted Server'

    Or if the unique ID of the VM was 12345678-1234-1234-112233456789

    prlctl backup {12345678-1234-1234-112233456789}

    To list existing backups of a given VM, the backup-list verb along with the name or unique ID would be used, as follows:

    code>prlctl backup-list {12345678-1234-1234-112233456789}

    And then to restore, you can either just use the ID of the VM to restore the latest backup:

    Mac sales slipped 2.1% in the U.S. between the fourth quarter of 2017 and the fourth quarter of 2018, and 5% during that time period, according to new data from Gartner.

    The research group says Apple sold 1.7 million Macs during the fourth quarter of 2018. That’s down from 1.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. That gives the Mac 12.1% share of the U.S. market compared to 12.4% in the year-ago period.

    Over the course of the last month, some troubling information has surfaced about Ring, the Amazon-owned company that has millions of cameras inside and outside homes across the globe.

    Starting in 2016, Ring allowed its Ukraine-based research team to access "every video created by every Ring camera around the world." Video content was unencrypted and "easily browsed and viewed," plus videos were linked to specific customers.

    Codea’s iOS Menu Bar

    Simeon, co-creator of the amazing iPad coding app Codea:

    Codea is our iPad app for creative coding. I’ve been developing
    a universal version for some time.

    It’s hard to take a complicated, eight-year-old iPad coding
    environment and bring it to iPhone. There’s so many damn features
    that need to work in so many damn configurations.

    Autolayout takes care of many of these issues (thanks, SnapKit).
    But it doesn’t take care of the most important: design. I’ve been
    stuck on the design for a universal version of Codea’s code editor
    for over a year. It might even be two.

    I realised six months ago as I was using my Mac, using the menus,
    that I need these things — menus — in Codea. I was trying to
    solve a problem that has been solved for decades.

    So I set out to make the best menus I could make for iOS.

    Apple Cuts iPhone XR Prices for Third-Party...

    Apple has dropped the price of the iPhone XR by about $100 for its channel partners in China, reports Yahoo Finance. The price cut allows third-party vendors to purchase the iPhone XR more cheaply, which allows the device to be sold to customers at a lower price.

    Apple is not offering direct discounts on the device in China, but third-party retailers implemented price cuts on Tuesday after Apple dropped purchasing prices.

    An Apple partner that buys from Apple and sells to distributors and retailers dropped the iPhone XR's price from 5980 yuan ($881) to 5380 yuan ($793) with an additional 150 yuan ($22) coupon available.

    According to Yahoo Finance, the partner in question was told by Apple to drop prices to boost iPhone XR sales.

    CES 2019: The Best of ShowStoppers and the Show Floor

    Registered developers can download the new iOS 12.1.3 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center, while public beta testers can get the beta over-the-air.

    The fourth iOS 12.1.3 beta is technically the third beta, but because iOS 12.1.3 includes the same updates that were supposed to be included in the iOS 12.1.2 beta that was already released, Apple released the initial iOS 12.1.3 as a second beta rather than a first beta.

    Hulu redesign aims to simplify navigation

    Hulu is preparing to update its streaming app in order to make it simpler to navigate to and discover content you want to watch. Some of the changes coming in the weeks ahead are smaller, but worthwhile tweaks – like adding buttons or rearranging menus. But the more notable change is that Hulu is testing the elimination of the app’s existing landing page – currently known as “Lineup” – and replacing it with a new experience.

    There’s a possibility that the testing might reveal that viewers prefer “Lineup” over “Hulu Picks” so the company can’t definitively say that it will drop Lineup permanently.

    I’m currently testing out Hulu and it’s a pretty good app, but these changes are a good move. There are some other changes I would like to see with the DVR and other functions, but navigation should help users find the content they want faster.

    Apple has filed for two more patents related to fabric, which makes me thing the tech giant is at least considering “smart” clothing and even “smart” furniture. iWear, anyone?

    In the patent filings, Apple says it may be desirable to incorporate electrical components into furniture, clothing, and other items from materials such as fabric to provide enhanced functionality. However, Apple notes that it can be challenging to incorporate electrical components into a fabric-based item.

    Fabric is flexible, so it can be difficult to mount structures to fabric. Electrical components must be coupled to signal paths, but unless care is taken, signal paths will be damaged as fabric is bent and stretched. Apple is working on solutions.

    This could open up several interesting possibilities. Tomorrow's super-powered clothing might include garments that can recharge your smartphone and more. For instance, electronics could get recharged in the future simply by plugging them...

    5G might be over-hyped, but silly 10G claim shows it...

    As if some of the marketing hype around 5G weren’t already silly enough, the cable industry is hitting back with an absurd 10G marketing campaign.

    5G doesn’t just offer the potential for dramatically better mobile data speeds: it could also be fast enough to allow people to use a mobile hotspot to replace their home broadband connection, and it is this prospect which is frightening cable companies …

    If Apple wants to make a really rad vehicle, look at...

    I’m still dubious that Apple will release an automobile it makes itself. But if it does how about a Transformer-type vehicle. After all, Hyundai just debuted a small model of a car, the Elevate, that can activate robotic legs to climb walls, jump over gaps and navigate rough terrain.

    Designed with emergency responders in mind, it can activate robotic legs to walk at three mph over rough terrain. Considering the traffic jams in Nashville, TN (where I live) and the potholes, it sounds perfect for me.

    The Elevate is also able to climb a five-foot wall and jump a five-foot gap. It’s part of a project exploring "beyond the range of wheels” that Hyundai unveiled at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

    "When a tsunami or earthquake hits, current rescue vehicles can only deliver first responders to the edge of the debris field. They have to go the rest of the way by foot,"...

    Analysts last week slashed their AAPL target prices following Apple’s announcement that it would dramatically miss its own guidance for the holiday quarter, in what one of them called ‘Apple’s darkest day in the iPhone era.’ iPhone pricing has come under the microscope as many suggest this is a key factor in lengthening upgrade cycles.

    HSBC had already cut its own target for the stock, and switched its rating from Buy to Hold, but has now announced a second drop to its target price …

    NekTeck USB-IF Wall Charger is fast and inexpensive

    If you travel a lot and need to power up a lot of gadgets, the Nekteck USB-IF Wall Charger is convenient. With 90W of power delivery, it offers fast charging and comes with a handy six-foot Type-C integrated cable with a new design that’s fully reversible. 

    That’s a very nice touch, as this allows you to connect regardless of how you’re holding and inserting the cable into your device. Also cool: the NekTeck Charger can “intelligently” identify your gadgets automatically and provide the best output current (5V/3A, 9V/3A,15V/3A, 20V/4.5A). 

    It’s compatible with tablets and smartphones with a USB Type-C connector, such as Apple’s 12-inch MacBook, MacBook Pro (2016 or later), MacBook Air (2018), iPad Pro (2018), and more.

    There is one major drawback to the charger: it comes with a “captive” cord — in other words, it’s built into the body of the charger. This means if it goes out, the entire charger is useless. 

    On the other hand, the device is very...

    Apple should drop Intel for AMD

    Rumor has it pthat Apple is planning to produce its own CPUs and GPUs for Macs. Those T2 processors we have today are just a tiny first step—the big leap is to take something like the A12X and build a MacBook around it. It makes sense from the perspective of both power-to-performance ratio and a cost-to-performance ratio. Perhaps more importantly, it puts Apple fully in control of its whole platform, and allows the company to innovate in ways it can’t when it cedes the very heart of its computers to other companies.

    Apple reportedly cutting iPhone prices to compete in...

    It looks like Apple may be cutting its prices for a number of iPhone models to compete in the Chinese marketplace.

    A report from China’s National Business Daily says Chinese iPhone vendors received word yesterday regarding price cuts to iPhone 8, 8 Plus, XR, XS and XS Max.

    The largest cut can be seen with the iPhone XR, which allegedly is seeing a 450 yuan (~$66) discount, bringing the total XR price to 5250 yuan (about $770). The majority of the iPhone models are expected to see a 400 yuan (~$59) reduction.

    The report comes only after after a report stating that Apple has reduced iPhone production by an additional 10 percent for the next three months, as translated below:

    “Today (January 9th) evening, our reporter was informed that on the evening of January 8, Huaqiang North channel dealers received US price adjustment information, iPhone XR, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X and iPhone XS And other products such as iPhone XS Max began to cut prices....

    The 6 best iPhone apps for weight loss

    If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you told yourself that you’re going to lose weight as a New Year’s resolution. Congratulations! The bad news is that there’s a good chance you’re going to fail, at least if thousands of personal anecdotes and studies have any weight.

    But these days it’s easier to avoid falling into that trap. The iOS App Store is as stuffed with helpful apps for losing weight as I was stuffed with turkey and bread in the aftermath of Christmas dinner.

    These are the best of the bunch. Almost all of them track activity and calories, but a couple go so far as to pester you throughout the day to stay on focus (and some of us need that). I recommend parking them on your home screen, as they’ll be there to glare at you every time you’re tempted to open Uber Eats or check Safari for the hours of the local Chipotle.
