Logitech Crayon in Gray, Ember Mug 2, and More Added...

Apple has added a new selection of accessories to its online store this week.

For starters, the Logitech Crayon is now available in a new gray finish, complementing the existing silver option with red accents.

Priced at $69.95, the Logitech Crayon is a lower-cost alternative to the Apple Pencil. The drawing tool features a slim aluminum body and an Apple Pencil-like tip, with the same latency, tilt, and palm rejection that you get with the Apple Pencil. Unlike the Pencil, however, it lacks pressure sensitivity.

The Logitech Crayon is compatible with the sixth- and seventh-generation iPad, as well as the latest iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad mini models.

Hot on the heels of his iPhone 12 report, dead-on Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors) is back with a new prediction for Apple’s 2020 plans, and they’re very intriguing. Among the new products on the docket are a new iPhone SE, a redesigned MacBook Pro keyboard, an iPad Pro with a rear time-of-flight camera, and a pair of Apple AR glasses.

That’s a lot to absorb, so let’s break it down. First Kuo reiterates that his sources say a new iPhone SE is coming. That’s not a surprise, since he provided details about that very phone a couple weeks ago, but after years of rumors, it’s starting to look like it might actually happen.

Everyone’s AirPods will die. We’ve got the trick to...

Geoffrey A. Fowler, Washington Post:

“Sorry, we can’t help you,” said the Apple store Genius. My AirPods were dying. After just 15 minutes of use, the wireless headphones I use daily chirp a sad little battery-depleted alert. I came to Apple to get them repaired.

The employee said there were lots of people like me, with $159 AirPods purchased in 2016 and 2017 that now can’t hold a charge. But even though Apple promises “battery service,” the store had no way to fix my AirPods. It didn’t even have a way to test them.

If you are running into battery issues with your AirPods, here’s the sequence Fowler lays out for figuring out the economic path to follow:

  • If your AirPods are less than a year old and the battery is not performing up to the promised five hours of listening time, an Apple store will replace them at no cost.

  • Apple recently began selling its AppleCare+ warranty for $29, which covers the battery, too. But this...

Security officer fatally shoots robbery suspect at...

Fox 4 News, Dallas:

“The suspect entered the rear of the building wearing body armor and armed with an assault rifle in an attempt to commit a robbery. The suspect attempted to disarm the security officer. However, the security officer was able to pull his weapon and fire multiple shots at the suspect,” said Sgt. Warren Mitchell.

The suspect tried to run away after being shot but collapsed in the alley. He was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

This is the first time I’ve heard of a confrontation between Apple Store security and thieves/robbers. This a one off exception, or a sign of things to come? The suspect came prepared to kill, assault rifle in hand.

Where Apple Music is headed in 2020

Sophie Charara, Wired UK:

Apple doesn’t break out Beats 1 monthly listening figures; various commentators have speculated they are relatively low, the official line is “tens of millions”. What we do know is that one of Lowe’s priorities is to merge the two elements of Apple’s £9.99 a month Music offering: its Spotify-style streaming service and the Beats 1 radio shows.

And:

When it comes to someone like Billie Eilish, who now has her own Beats 1 show, the Apple Music team realised that their pre-adds, which allow users to register their interest in an album before it’s out, had made people more invested in her March 2019 album When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

It turns out users are four times more likely to complete an album if they’d pre-added it to their collection, 1.5 times more likely to listen to it again and they listen to music four times longer than other Apple Music subscribers. In short, Apple is trying to build a better hype machine than...

No new iPad Pros this year? ‘Apple Glasses’ in early...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — analyst Ming-Chi Kuo forecasts that Apple will release updated iPad Pros and new MacBooks (yep, MacBooks, not MacBook Airs) in the first half of 2020, along with an “iPhone SE 2” and the long-anticipated Apple Glasses.

He thinks the next rev of Apple’s pro tablet will come in the same 11-inch and 12.9-inch form factors, but will feature, among other things, a Time of Flight 3D sensor that will aid in augmented reality apps and usage. So does this mean that we’ll see no refresh of the iPad Pro line-up this fall? Almost everyone (including me) felt we’d see ‘em updated with new specs later this month.

Kuo says the MacBook will replace the controversial butterfly keyboard with a scissor mechanism keyboard that will be more durable. I’m assuming he means the 12-inch MacBook....

Variety:

Apple has emerged victorious after shelling out for “A Christmas Carol,” a new live-action musical based on the Charles Dickens classic to star Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell, numerous people close to the heated bidding told Variety.

And:

Reynolds and Ferrell stand to make staggering amounts as producers and stars, along with significant paydays for writer-directors Sean Anders and John Morris (“Daddy’s Home,” “Instant Family”). Fees for talent alone will clock in at north of $60 million.

Astonishing. The article digs into some of the behind-the-scenes negotiations, with Netflix leading, Apple stepping in at the last moment with an offer Reynolds and Ferrell couldn’t refuse.

As any long-time Apple World Today patron knows, I’m a big fan of WaterField Designs’ products. The company’s new Executive Leather iPhone Sleeve — available in six custom-fitted sizes for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max (“naked” or within an Apple case) is as gorgeous as the rest of the company’s products, but doesn’t fit my needs. At least without an additional purchase.

Handcrafted from full-grain cow or pebbled bison leather, it looks and feels great. The $69.9 Executive Leather iPhone Sleeve  is lined with soft Ultrasuede  that protects and cleans the screen of the smartphone as you slide it in and out of a coat, briefcase, or purse. However, it’s too big to fit into a pants or shirt pocket. You can spring an extra $5 for a loop and carabiner so it can be attached to a belt or bag loop, which is what I need to use the...

Ausounds AU Stream ANC review: Impressive sound and...

Active noise cancellation is still a rarity when it comes to true wireless earbuds, and it’s generally an expensive feature, to boot. Enter the Ausounds AU Stream ANC earphones, a pair of relatively compact and comfortable Bluetooth earbuds that pack in impressive sound, a water-resistant design, and solid noise-cancellation abilities for a reasonable $150 price tag. We do have a few quibbles, however, including a so-so charging case, the lack of aptX support, and the fact that the microphones occasionally pick up wind noise.

Design

Measuring about 1.7 inches long and weighing about 0.4 ounces (for the pair), the black AU Stream ANC earbuds are slightly longer and about twice the weight of a pair of Apple AirPods, although that’s not to say that the earbuds (which are each equipped with 13mm titanium gold drivers) are anywhere near heavy.

Apple and other tech giants will in future be required to pay tax in each country in which they sell products and services, under new global plans.

The plans were announced by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), following more than 130 countries agreeing on the need for global tax reform …

How to pair a wireless controller with your Apple TV

I really like most of the games in Apple Arcade, Apple’s gaming streaming service that allows you to play games on — and across — Macs, iPhones, iPads, iPod touches, and Apple TVs. And I really like that you can pair a PlayStation DUALSHOCK 4 or Xbox Wireless Controller for gameplay. Here’s how to connect of the controllers to your Apple TV:

Begin with your controller turned off. Then to put your controller in pairing mode. With an Xbox Wireless Controller, press the Xbox button to turn on the controller. Then press and hold the Connect button for a few seconds.

With a DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller, press and hold the PS and Share buttons at the same time until the light bar begins to flash.

Then on your Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD, go to Settings > Remotes and Devices > Bluetooth. Wait while your Apple TV searches for nearby Bluetooth Accessories. 

To pair, select the name of your controller. You'll know...

8 hidden features of macOS Catalina

MacOS Catalina is here, and with it, a bunch of top-line features: Mac Catalyst, new apps, Sidecar, Screen Time, and Voice Control. But as you might expect, Catalina also includes dozens of small feature changes that are worth investigating. Here are a few of the most interesting hidden features in macOS Catalina.

Home theater at last

For the first time, the Mac will have access to the 4K HDR versions of popular movies and TV shows. This comes courtesy of the new TV app—but it has limits. All Macs introduced in 2018 or later are capable of playing videos in HDR and Dolby Vision formats for high dynamic range, and can play audio encoded with the high-quality Dolby Atmos format.

Apple will launch a new iPad Pro with a rear-facing 3D Time of Flight camera in the first quarter of 2020, according to a new report out today from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and seen by MacRumors.

We've previously heard multiple rumors suggesting a time-of-flight camera system for Apple's 2020 iPhones and iPad Pros, including info from Kuo himself, but this is the first time that he's specified the 3D sensing camera system will be available in new iPad Pro models to be released early next year.

However, most marketing organizations focus their growth strategies on growing customer satisfaction and do little to build customer confidence in themselves and their ability to make the right decisions, notes the research group.

Patent outlines how vibration/feedback could be...

Your Apple Pencil could one day provide vibrational feedback as you draw.

A recently published Apple patent shows how a next-gen Apple Pencil could use haptic feedback, with the use of magnetic fields physically affecting the stylus while it is actively being used to draw on an iPad or iPad Pro, using the force to vibrate the implement. 

Such a feature could be powered by a motor or actuator of some form that would vibrate the stylus, as seen in some video game controllers.

Per the patent, entitled “Stylus with external magnetic influence,” Apple has suggested that such feedback could be achieved by creating magnetic fields that can impart a force on the tool. The patent features a magnetic component embedded inside the stylus, as per usual with the Apple Pencil. The stylus could react to magnetic fields which would move the stylus magnet, which would then move the attached stylus.

The magnetic component could be housed in a spring, which would allow...

iCloud Drive folder sharing, other features, pushed...

Sometimes a project takes a bit longer than expected.

Apple has quietly informed customers that its shared iCloud Drive folders feature, which would have directly competed with Dropbox, has been pushed back to 2020.

Prior to Tuesday, the macOS All Features page had an asterisk for iCloud folder sharing that said the addition would be coming later this fall. Overnight, the text has changed to “coming this spring.”

The Communication Limits for Screen Time feature has also been pushed back as well.

The corresponding iOS 13 All Features page has not yet been updated to reflect the new timeline. It seems almost certain, though, that it will also be pushed back to the spring.

The iCloud Drive system was overhauled during the iOS 13 beta period, adding new features such as folder sharing and the ability to pin files to stay downloaded. Unfortunately, a number of beta testers reported issues with data loss and data corruption. Apple, in turn, reverter...

Owlcam review: The easiest, classiest, most phone-...

When it first shipped, the Owlcam broke new ground by cherry-picking the best ideas from the competition and adding an excellent trick of its own: uploading incident video in real time to the cloud. It’s also easily the slickest consumer experience in the market, with some real top-notch design flourishes. 

But at $349 on Amazon plus a yearly subscription (the first year is included), it’s pricey over the long haul. It’s also highly co-dependent with your phone. If neither of those factors bothers you, it’s the real deal.

Note that this is actually our second look at the Owlcam. We tested what was basically a shipping beta, then known as the Owl Car Cam, just over a year ago. It lacked key features such as Android support, some of which were added after that review. Reviewed here is the mature product.

Fees for talent alone will clock in at north of $60 million, according to Variety, quoting unnamed “numerous insiders.

What can you get for a couple billion dollars? Apple hopes to attract some of the best talent in TV and film production, including huge stars and directors, and to lock down the television and movie rights to best-selling books. Though the company has only given us a glimpse at a handful of shows, the Hollywood trade press has uncovered many more through its reporting on deals from casting agents and production companies.

Some Developers Facing 'Several Problems'...

One of macOS Catalina's biggest new features for developers is Mac Catalyst—initially known as Project Catalyst—which Apple says makes porting iPad apps to the Mac as easy as checking a box in Xcode.

However, more work is required for the iPad apps to truly resemble native Mac apps, and Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reports that some developers have encountered "several problems" with Catalyst so far.

For example, the report claims that James Thomson had to work harder than he expected to get his popular PCalc calculator app for iPad to run well on the Mac. Thomson said the Mac version initially "looked like an iPad app floating on a larger Mac screen," so he had to redesign much of the user interface.

Thomson added that some older...

I had been having issues with one of my laptops (due to macOS Catalina), so I decided to reformat the drive and set up from scratch. I didn’t realize that iCloud Drive hadn’t uploaded the document, though. I am not blaming Apple here because I was running a beta OS, and I knew I had some wonky things going on. Thankfully, Backblaze was working, though. I logged in to the online portal, downloaded the PowerPoint, and was up and running. One of the things that makes Backblaze such an excellent backup service on macOS is how much care they put into their app. It’s fast, lightweight, and is 100% native to macOS. Today,...

RetroArch 1.7.9 - Game emulator.

RetroArch is most popularly known for being a program with which you can play many emulators and games, which have all been customized and tailor-ported to the libretro API.

It is designed to be fast, lightweight, and portable. It tries to be on the cutting edge of technology in terms of supported technology as well as trying to be as backward compatible as possible, a paradoxical goal if any. It has features few other dedicated games / emulators have, such as:

  • Real-time rewinding and GGPO netplay
  • Libretro’s serialization support allows features such as rollback based netplay to be easily implementable. It also allows you to rewind your games in real-time.
  • Multi-pass shaders (up to 8-pass)
  • It was one of the first programs out of the gates to have frontend shader support to begin with. RetroArch has its own shader spec that is being extensively used and implemented by various other programs unrelated to RetroArch/...

If I didn’t write about Apple-related tech for a living, I’m honestly not sure whether I’d upgrade to macOS Catalina. For me, the loss of 32-bit app compatibility could potentially be both a major hassle and a significant expense.

A hassle in part because there are several small utility apps I use which are 32-bit only. All are old, and the developers have long since lost interest in updating them, so I’m going to need to find suitable alternatives…

The Supreme Court cleared the way Monday for blind people to sue Domino’s Pizza and other retailers if their websites are not accessible.

In a potentially far-reaching move, the justices turned down an appeal from Domino’s and let stand a U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling holding that the Americans With Disabilities Act protects access not just to restaurants and stores but also to the websites and apps of those businesses.

This is a pretty big deal. Far-reaching indeed. Is your web site accessible?

∞ Apple posts Oceanhorn 2 Apple Arcade trailer

[VIDEO] This is a surprisingly long trailer (embedded in main Loop post), filled with detail. I can guess why Apple did this.

Some (if not most) Apple Arcade games have relatively simple stories to tell. Frogger is a well known game mechanic. Stay alive, pick up stuff. Gorgeous, but relatively simple.

Same with many other Apple Arcade games. Oceanhorn 2 is a much bigger game, with more game mechanics to master and a much larger story to tell. It’s beautifully built, well balanced, and a lot of fun. The trailer does it justice.

On my short list of best Apple Arcade games.

Hunter Muller: Apple’s performance will benefit...

Hunter Muller, president and CEO of HMG Strategy, a provider of executive networking events and “thought leadership,” predicts that Apple’s financial performance over the next few quarters will also benefit Samsung, Google and Microsoft as competition and opportunities in the smartphone market continue to heat up.

Apple’s steady performance over time is benefitting all tech makers, at virtually every level of competition,” says Muller. “Sooner or later, many of the new features and capabilities introduced in smartphones will make their way into the products and services we use in our roles as technology executives. That’s why the ongoing competition between Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, Google and other tech companies matters – and why we need to pay close attention.”

WaterField Designs unveils the Air Duffel in-flight personal item. Designed in collaboration with over 1,200 frequent travelers, the carry-on is designed to maximize allowable airline personal item space yet fits under an airline seat leaving room to stretch out legs. 

The Air Duffel slips over a wheeled suitcase handle while granting access to travel documents and electronic devices from its pockets. With the Air Duffel, travelers can carry more gear on board and avoid checked-bag fees and lost luggage headaches, according to WaterField Designs founder Gary Waterfield.

It’s available in brown waxed canvas or black ballistic nylon, with a full-grain leather flap. The canvas version costs $429; the nylon version is $399.

Hulu adds downloads for iPhone and iPad

Hulu press release:

Available today on iOS for viewers on our Hulu (No Ads) plan, you’ll now be able to download thousands of shows and movies — like past seasons of hit series including Family Guy, Desperate Housewives, This is Us, How I Met Your Mother, and ER, as well as Hulu Originals like The Handmaid’s Tale, Shrill and The Act — to take with you on the go.

And:

Navigate to the Downloads tab at the bottom of your screen to access your downloaded content. To find more shows and movies to download, click “See What’s Downloadable” and browse through thousands of titles just a few clicks away.

Similar to what Netflix has had for a while now. To me, download support is a critical feature for a media service to make the cut, earn that monthly payment. As the field gets more crowded, download support will be one of the features that helps me decide which services to keep, which to discard.

My question is, will Apple TV+ support downloads? Answer is...
