Can’t download photos from your iPhone to your Mac?...

Your Mac needs to trust your iPhone or iPad—and vice-versa. Apple added a Trust button to iOS years ago that appears when a device is connected to a computer, requiring a phone or tablet be unlocked and the connection confirmed. This was another layer in attempting to ensure that a device’s owner really wanted that computer to have access.

However, you can run afoul of this provision. My dad wrote to me from a small island on Greece recently after he’d swapped in a Greek carrier’s SIM for his unlocked AT&T iPhone. While voice, text, and data worked fine, whenever he plugged his iPhone into his laptop, he neither received a Trust dialog nor could get his phone’s images to appear as available with iTunes, Photos, or Image Capture.

Attention Correction Feature in iOS 13 Beta Enables...

A new feature in the latest iOS 13 beta makes users appear as if they're looking directly at the camera to make eye contact during FaceTime calls, when actually they're looking away from the camera at the image of the other person on their screen.

The FaceTime Correction Feature as demoed by Will Simon (@Wsig)

The new "FaceTime Attention Correction" feature, first spotted by Mike Rundle on Twitter, can be turned on and off in the FaceTime section of the Settings app, although it only appears to work on iPhone XS and XS Max devices in the third iOS 13 beta sent out to developers on Tuesday.

Why the feature is limited to these devices right now remains unknown. It clearly relies on some form of image...

Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law imposes a wide range of strict privacy rules on companies, one of which is that a customer has a right to see a copy of all the data held on them …

Apple patent filing involves improved iPhone, iPad...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 10,341,553) for an “image capturing device with touch screen for adjusting camera settings.” The company continues to look for more ways to improve the photo/video abilities of its iPhone and iPad products.

The patent involves methods for operating a built-in digital camera of a portable, handheld electronic device. In one embodiment, the device receives a user selection (e.g., tap, tap and hold, gesture) of a region displayed on the display screen (e.g., touch sensitive display screen). 

A touch to focus mode may then be initiated and an exposure metering area can then automatically be determined based on the user selection and displayed on the screen. Then a focus area can be automatically determined based on the user selection and an automatic focus scan initiated for the focus area. Next, the automatic exposure mechanism adjusts exposure parameters based on the metering area.

Should you run the iOS 13 beta?

The iOS 13 public beta is out now, and it look like a smorgasbord of all the things we ever wanted. Dark Mode! Siri support for music apps! Better video editing! Overhauled Maps! A swiping keyboard! Smaller downloads!

It’s really tempting to pop over to beta.apple.com and jump on the beta bandwagon. (For more on how to install the beta, and how to uninstall it, read our guide.)

But you might want to pump the breaks a bit. Running beta software has sometimes serious consequences, and not all the wonderful features of iOS 13 are even available yet in the beta. To help you decide if you should participate in the iOS 13 or iPadOS 13 public beta, we prepared this short guide.

More than 20 billion Wi-Fi devices are forecasted to ship between 2019 and 2024, according to a new market data report from global tech market advisory firm, ABI Research (www.abiresearch.com).

FCC “A2159” listing hints at unreleased MacBook Pro...

Sometimes the leaks reveal the really cool things.

A model number for an unreleased MacBook Pro has emerged through the Federal Communications Commission. The model number could be a sign that Apple is planning to ship a new variant of the notebook, including a potential rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro.

A search of FCC filings unearthed the model number A2159, registered to Apple Inc in reference to a “Laptop Computer.” The model number matches one of seven models unearthed in mid-June at the Eurasian Economic Commission, which strongly indicates it is for the same device. 

The models leaked from the EEC registry included A2141, A2147, A2158, A2179, A2182, A2251, and the resurfaced A2159. At that time, the models were all described as being for “portable” computers. 

The FCC listing currently only exists for the A2159 model number, with the others not being accessible to the public. It’s possible that the other six model numbers will become visible as their...

Apple patent shows reworked bumper within Project...

Apple’s autonomous vehicle project, also known as “Project Titan,” may incorporate an incredibly different bumper upon its arrival.

Per a recently published patent for a patent filed in 2016, Apple’s bumper would include an inflatable structure between the bumper cover and car body. It would also be able to retract to reduce the length of the car for parking. Apple says an extended bumper changes the initial point of collision.

It’s definitely an interesting idea and we’ll have to see what comes of it.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

How to use Sidecar to make your iPad a secondary Mac...

If your Mac is running macOS Catalina, you can now use your iPad as a secondary monitor with the new “Sidecar” feature. It’s ridiculously easy to set up wirelessly through AirPlay.

First, a few notes. Unlike with some existing third-party screen-sharing apps such as Air Display 3, you can really only use your fingers on the display for simple actions such as scrolling through text.

The Apple Pencil works as a “mouse,” though—and that includes using it to alter and create images through the full version of Adobe Photoshop while we’re waiting on the proper iPad version to appear. Apart from the Apple Pencil, interaction involves a number of shortcuts on the borders of the interface—and you can press these with your fingers. Notably, Apple also includes relevant Touch Bar actions when someone is using an app on the iPad through Sidecar, so in Safari, for instance, you’ll see the visual...

Apple received a total of 80 requests from 11 countries to remove 634 apps from various App Stores in different countries. While Apple did not provide specific details on which apps it was asked to pull, requests from China made up the bulk of...

Apple Finds Issue With Logic Board In Some 2018...

Apple says a "very small number" of MacBook Air models have an issue with the main logic board and can be replaced at no cost to customers. 9to5Mac reports: Apple's memo to repair staff notes that it has identified "an issue" with the main logic board specifically in Retina, 13-inch, 2018 MacBook Air models with certain serial numbers. Apple will be emailing customers with machines with the serial numbers they've identified as being affected, otherwise customers can take their machine to Apple Stores or authorized repair staff to have their devices checked out. Apple's documents list symptoms as issues with "power," but do not elaborate on what problems users are experiencing exactly. A quick search online for problems with the 2018 MacBook Air logic board shows reports back to when the device first launched with some users' machines not able to power on at all. The affected machines will be covered for four years from the original purchase date. Users that think they might be...

Apple this week received FCC approval for an unreleased MacBook Pro with a model number of A2159, which is one of the model numbers that was recently registered with the Eurasian Economic Commission.

In the FCC documentation, Apple specifies that the unreleased A2159 machine is a MacBook Pro, which is curious as the MacBook Pro already received a 2019 refresh in May.

A2159 is a model that was not included in the May update, and it's not entirely clear what it is. As a Reddit user points out, the back of the machine says that it's rated at 20.3V - 3A Max, which is equivalent to 61W, perhaps suggesting a refreshed 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Nooo! The NashvillePost reports that Apple plans to build a new retail store at Fifth + Broadway in downtown Nashville. But that’s not where a new store is needed most (at least in my selfish opinion).

Apple also has a retail store in the west side of Music City in the Green Hills Mall. There’s another in the CoolSprings Galleria down the road in Franklin. But there are none in the north end of town (where I live). 

It takes me almost 30 minutes to get to the Green Hills store — and that’s if I go at a time where I can avoid traffic. If I get stuck in traffic, it takes 45 minutes to an hour.

There are a lot of Apple fans in the north side of Nashville/Davidson County and the adjoining Sumner County who need a retail store that’s more convenient.

Xiaomi Threatens Legal Action Against Users Who Call...

From a report: Apple's Memoji may have become the more popular 3D avatar feature for smartphones, but Xiaomi wants people to know that its similarly-named version -- Mimoji -- came first, despite increasingly confusing overlap between the apps' names and features. Moreover, it's apparently threatening legal action against writers who call it a copycat without providing proof. In September 2017, Apple introduced Animoji as an iPhone X-exclusive component of Messages, enabling the high-end smartphone's users to see their facial expressions rendered in augmented reality as one of 12 animated emoji glyphs, including pig, fox, rabbit, panda, and poop icons. [...]

Writers and users in China found the similarities similar enough to call Xiaomi's version a clone, but after a day of "internal self-examination," the company challenged that on the Weibo social network. As Gizmochina notes, PR head Xu Jieyun posted the app's naming timeline, and said that the "functional logic...

BYOD driving demand for Addigy Mobile Device...

Addigy, a provider of cloud-based Apple device management software, has announced new research by ResearchandMarkets that reveals that the worldwide market for managed mobility services is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31.41% from 2019-2024, reaching $26.45 billion by 2024. Addigy CEO Jason Dettbarn says this growth is driving demand for Addigy mobile device management (MDM) as IT solution providers seek more comprehensive and secure platforms. 

According to ResearchandMarkets, the primary driver for this growth is the increasing adoption of BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) policies across various industries. Organizations are adopting BYOD policies in a bid to enhance productivity, without compromising the security and privacy in the workplace. Increasing dependency on IT services for enterprise operations has also compelled organizations to look for alternatives to outsource their non-core activities, adds the research group....

Xiaomi Clones Apple's Memoji With New '...

Chinese company Xiaomi is gearing up to launch a new smartphone, the CC9, and along with it the company has introduced what it's calling "Mimoji" (via Engadget). Unsurprisingly given their name, these 3D avatars appear and function very similar to Apple's Memoji, letting users create and design their own torso-less characters and send them through texts.

Xiaomi's Mimoji via Xiaomi/Engadget

Xiaomi's avatars bear a striking resemblance to the avatars and customization options offered by Apple, down to similar hats and art styles. On iPhone, users can create and customize their Memoji, and then send them as videos or stickers in Messages, and it appears that Xiaomi's Mimoji will act in a similar fashion.

Of course, the idea of personalized 3D avatars has been around for a while, with companies like Samsung and Microsoft letting users create digital versions of...

In an interview with GQ magazine, Apple SVP Eddy Cue hit back at some of the reports surrounding the Apple original content launch. A New York Post article ahead of the Apple TV+ unveiling said that Tim Cook had been reviewing scripts for Apple’s shows and sending notes like “don’t be so mean” to the producers and directors.

Cue firmly rejects that report in this interview, telling GQ “there’s never been one note passed from us on scripts, that I can assure you. We leave the folks [alone] who know they’re doing.”

Tim Cook, in an email to NBC reporter, calls Wall...

Here’s a link to our post on the original, paywalled Wall Street Journal story, in case you haven’t yet seen it.

In response to this story, Tim Cook sent this email to NBC reporter Dylan Byers:

Hi Dylan,

Hope you are well.

The story is absurd. A lot of the reporting, and certainly the conclusions just don’t match with reality. At a base level, it shows a lack of understanding about how the design team works and how Apple works. It distorts relationships, decisions and events to the point that we just don’t recognize the company it claims to describe.

The design team is phenomenally talented. As Jony has said, they’re stronger than ever, and I have complete confidence that they will thrive under Jeff, Evans, and Alan’s leadership. We know the truth and we know the incredible things they’re capable of doing...

Fall detection saved my Dad’s life

Reddit:

His watch called 911 last night after he fell and was unresponsive to the prompts. He has balance issues and we specifically got the watch for this feature after a few incidents prior. He had to get multiple stitches on his forehead but the scans came back negative for internal head bleeding. The doctors said he suffered a concussion and it might take a while to recover from the blunt trauma. I’m extremely thankful for that feature and I don’t know what would’ve happened if we wasn’t wearing his watch.

The Apple Watch saves lives. There are waves of stories about Siri access during emergencies, ECG heart warnings, and fall detection.

To me, Apple Watch has evolved into one of the most significant products Apple has ever released. And I believe the current sensors are just the tip of the iceberg. Apple Watch still has plenty of room to grow.

Interview with Eddy Cue, focusing on Apple TV+

British GQ, in the intro to an interview with Eddy Cue:

Just as Ive was the driving force behind Apple’s hardware, Cue – whose official job title is senior vice president of internet software and services – is now the driving force behind all the services from Apple Music and Maps to the new Apple credit card and Apple TV+, its new Netflix-rival streaming service set to launch this autumn in more than 100 countries.

Cue, on the rumor that Tim Cook posted notes on scripts, on the order of “Don’t be so mean”:

“I saw the comments that myself and Tim were writing notes on the scripts and whatever,” says Cue. “There’s never been one note passed from us on scripts, that I can assure you. We leave the folks [alone] who know they’re doing.”

So Cook didn’t give that particular note?

“I can assure you that was 100 per cent false. He didn’t say, ‘Don’t be so mean.’ He didn’t say anything about a script.”

And:

What would be an example of a show...

Apple Car anyone? Apple patent is for ‘extendable...

Let the Apple Car rumors roll on. Apple has been granted a patent (number 10,336,290) for “extendable bumpers for vehicles.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes that vehicle bumpers often protrude longitudinally forward with respect to other vehicle structures such as body panels, or longitudinally rearward of other vehicle structures. In the event of a collision at the front or rear of a vehicle, the bumper is often the first part of the vehicle that’s struck. 

Shown is a side view illustration showing a portion of a vehicle including an extendable bumper system.

A number of vehicle bumper structures have been utilized. A simple design includes a laterally extending metal beam that is supported forward of other vehicle structures by two or more support structures. 

Many modern designs include a plastic bumper cover that conceals an underlying bumper structure that is designed to absorb impact by...

Commander One, a Finder alternative for macOS, gets...

Eltima describes its Commander One as a "Finder alternative." However, I'd describe it more as a handy Finder "enhancer" that's great for macOS "power users.” And it gets even better with the recently released version 2.0.

Written completely in Apple’s Swift programming language.

A dual-panel file manager for macOS 10.10 or higher, it allows you to use two panels at once, set up your own hotkeys for a variety of actions, and more. Commander One doesn't come with a PDF manual (you download the software, so I wasn't expecting printed instructions), so there's a bit of a learning curve. 

Eltima's introductory "Welcome" screen helps get you started, but other features need an explanation. For example, choosing between the "dynamic" and "bytes" for the "size in apps" under the View preferences will certainly be as clear as mud to novice users.

iPadOS 13: How to use the floating digital keyboard

Here’s a truth we’ve had to endure for the iPad’s entire lifespan until now: The bigger the iPad, the bigger the frustration of typing on the screen when you’re holding the tablet like a clipboard. One hand had to hold up the iPad, leaving the index finger of your other hand to hunt and peck its way across the QuickType keyboard on the expansive screen. It certainly didn’t help that the normal keyboard is simply bad for presentation because it obscures around a fourth of the screen.

Apple originally attempted to solve this problem by letting you split the keyboard in two halves, but Apple is removing that feature with iPadOS 13. That’s because iPadOS 13 introduces a better option: Now there’s a floating iPhone-sized keyboard that can freely move to any spot of the display. Unlike the iPad’s digital keyboard in its default configuration, this smaller floating keyboard...

Apple reincorporates Expansion Slot Utility for 2019...

If you’re planning on snagging a 2019 Mac Pro, this should help out.

The updated Mac Pro apparently brings back Apple’s Expansion Slot Utility app to customize PCIe bandwidth between the eight available PCI-express slots on the professional machine.

The application, which was discovered in the second beta of macOS Catalina, has apparently brought back the Expansion Slot Utility, which was present for a time in the older Intel-based Mac Pro systems. The Expansion Slot Utility helps with tasks such as allocating bandwidth towards a given graphics card.

The 2019 Mac Pro features a total of eight PCI-express slots that users can expand into. In total, the unit has four full-size, three double-wide, and a single half slot that comes pre-filled with Apple’s own I/O board.

The inclusion was spotted by Steve Moser and shared on Twitter.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

There’s a pent-up demand for mobile connectivity...

There’s a growing divide in terms of the quality of mobile broadband coverage between rural and urban communities. 

Mobile operators are responding to local community and state regulatory pressure to ensure mobile cellular coverage is not just “voice-capable” but also “mobile broadband-capable.” In 2019, an estimated $20.2 billion will be invested in developed and emerging market rural cell-sites, a 1.2% increase from 2018, reports ABI Research (www.abiresearch.com), a global tech market advisory firm.

Mobile operators and infrastructure vendors are also in the process of rebooting the typical cell-site deployment approach. The macro base-station is now being complemented by low-cost small cells that deliver coverage to a specific rural village or town. Small cell unit shipments will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 10.9% to reach $2.2 billion by the end of 2024.

Getting Time Capsule failure warnings? Here’s what...

Apple no longer sells its Time Capsule, a combination of a backup drive, Time Machine, and an AirPort Extreme Base Station. However, many are in use, and some components inevitably fail, especially the internal hard drive.

If you receive an error on a Mac using the Time Capsule for Time Machine backups that you can no longer back up to it, you can try to work your way out of the problem by using AirPort Utility.

Warning! This approach erases all the backup snapshots stored on your Time Capsule. There may be no way to recover them—hence the error—but you should perform full Time Machine backups or disk clones of all devices that used the Time Capsule for archiving files, as well as trying step 4 below.

Apple Reportedly Plans to Launch iPhone With Under-...

Apple intends to launch a new iPhone for the budget-conscious Chinese market that features an under-display fingerprint sensor instead of expensive Face ID technology, Chinese media sources have claimed.

According to English-language Chinese media outlet The Global Times, Apple will release the new "tailored iPhone" in the country to arrest declining sales in the domestic market, which have been worsened by cost pressures from the 18-month long trade war between the U.S and China.

The new phone will reportedly remove Face ID, the facial recognition system for the iPhone, and instead employ an under-display fingerprint function, news site caijing.com.cn reported, citing sources on the upstream industry supply chain. An industry insider revealed that this is likely to "save on costs."

Apple CEO Tim Cook Calls Recent WSJ Report About...

Following Apple's announcement that Jony Ive will be leaving the company to start his own design firm later this year, there have been multiple reports speculating on why Ive left and his time at Apple over the course of the last few years.

The Wall Street Journal published one such report over the weekend, suggesting that after the release of the Apple Watch and its failure as a fashion accessory, Ive was dispirited and wanted to take a step back from day to day work at the company.

The report further suggested that Ive's hands-off approach was disrupting work internally as he failed to show up to meetings and failed to offer design team members the guidance they needed, particularly on the iPhone X. Ive was said to be frustrated with an increasing...

Much has been reported about Jony Ive’s departure from Apple and his decision to form his own design firm. The timeline of that decision may date back to the launch of the Apple Watch, with reduced input from Ive on newer projects in recent years.

Apple Watch is arguably the most Jony Ive product in Apple’s project portfolio, and with it comes an impact on health that could outlive any object shaped by Ive. Apple is hardly the first company to bring a smartwatch to market, but its mainstream appeal is very much a result of Jony Ive’s vision.
