  • A quick review of Apple’s new iPhone Lightning Dock

    Ars Technica » Infinite Loop
    Iljitsch van Beijnum
    25 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    Earlier this week, Apple released a new iPhone Dock. Back in the day, the third generation iPod came with a dock, and nearly two years ago Apple released iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C docks. Those old docks had a 30-pin or Lightning connector, respectively, as well as a 3.5mm line out connector. As I like to use my iPhone on my nightstand as a clock while it charges (Analog Digital Clock for the win!), I took a knife to my 5S Dock and managed to make it fit an iPhone 6. But I ended up using the dock fairly rarely because docking requires getting my iPhone out of its case—which I use religiously…

    21 May 2015 | 7:47 am
    Steven Berlin Johnson finds the digital crown button convoluted: If you press this button, these are the potential events that will transpire on your Watch’s screen: You’ll be taken to the “watch face” view. You’ll be taken to the “home screen” app view. You’ll stay in the “home screen” view, but it will re-center on the “watch face” app. You’ll move from a detailed view of a notification back to the notifications summary. His proposed solution: Fortunately there is an easy fix for this confusion, which is to streamline the Digital Crown so that it focuses…

McIntyre wonders aloud, "Why Does Apple Bother to Advertise Its Watch?" (tip o' the antlers to Dan Frakes and Ken Segall who handily performs his own takedown.)Oh, it's probably not selling well. Seems obvious, right? Must be because it's not selling well. No one's buying them. Why else would they advertise? No reason.

  • 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro review: The force is with Apple's workhorse laptop

    From the outside, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display looks like the MacBook Pro we’ve come to know from the recent past. The major changes to the laptop are only apparent once you start using the machine: increased speed, and a new Force Trackpad that provides new input functionality. The changes are most certainly welcomed, but overall, they may not be enough for anyone who bought a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro within the past three years to upgrade. But if you’re laptop is older, or you’re thinking about upgrading from a MacBook Air, you’ll see great benefits.The new…
  • TripMode review: Tethered Mac? Your wallet will love this data monitoring app

    Ever since it was possible to tether a computer to a cell modem, it's also been possible to blow through one's monthly or service-plan limit and either run out of mobile data, be throttled to a trickle, or face expensive overage fees. TripMode is the first easy-to-use OS X utility to help with that problem. It could do more, but for $8 (or $5 in its current sale), it does plenty. TripMode lists any app or service that tries to access the network, and lets you enable them; they're all disabled, or blacklisted, by default. This is a list of typical apps.To read this article in full or to leave…

  • A quick review of Apple’s new iPhone Lightning Dock

    Iljitsch van Beijnum
    25 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    Earlier this week, Apple released a new iPhone Dock. Back in the day, the third generation iPod came with a dock, and nearly two years ago Apple released iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C docks. Those old docks had a 30-pin or Lightning connector, respectively, as well as a 3.5mm line out connector. As I like to use my iPhone on my nightstand as a clock while it charges (Analog Digital Clock for the win!), I took a knife to my 5S Dock and managed to make it fit an iPhone 6. But I ended up using the dock fairly rarely because docking requires getting my iPhone out of its case—which I use religiously…

A new report from the well-sourced 9to5Mac details a handful of features, the most interesting of which is a note about support for older devices. We had assumed that Apple would include support for some devices based on its aging A5 SoC—the fifth-gen iPod Touch, original iPad Mini, and third-gen Apple TV are all still being sold, after all—but the report indicates that we can expect an update for out-of-production devices like the iPhone 4S (the iPad 2 isn't…
  • Report: OS X and iOS will switch to the Apple Watch’s “San Francisco” typeface

    Andrew Cunningham
    20 May 2015 | 12:05 pm
    It looks like Apple could be shaking up its typefaces again. A report from 9to5Mac indicates that the forthcoming releases of iOS and OS X will use the Apple Watch's "San Francisco" as the system typeface, moving away from the Helvetica Neue typeface introduced in iOS 7 and OS X Yosemite. The typeface, available for registered Apple developers to download here, is "designed specifically for legibility on small screens." We've included a comparison of the "ultralight" weight of both typefaces above. Two things are immediately apparent—first, San Francisco is just a shade heavier than…

    Apple has just released Watch OS 1.0.1, the first ever over-the-air software update for the Apple Watch. The new version improves performance for Siri, Accessibility, and third-party apps. Some fitness tracking functions also get attention—standing activity measurements, calorie counting for indoor cycling and rowing, and measuring distance and pace while walking and running outdoors have all been improved. The update includes support for the new emoji introduced in iOS 8.3. Brazilian Portuguese, Danish, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Thai, and Turkish language support have also been improved.

  • Jony Ive Promoted to ‘Chief Design Officer’

    Federico Viticci
    25 May 2015 | 3:49 pm
    Until now, Ive’s job title has been Senior Vice President of Design. But I can reveal that he has just been promoted and is now Apple’s Chief Design Officer. It is therefore an especially exciting time for him. Inside the fabled design studio (cloths over the long tables hiding the exciting new prototypes from prying eyes like mine) Jony has two people with him. They too have been promoted as part of Ive’s new role. In a profile at The Telegraph, Stephen Fry reveals Jony Ive's new role at Apple.

    Revisions for Dropbox I was excited to discover Revisions For Dropbox, a Mac app for viewing a history of changes for any file or folder in your Dropbox account. I'd been looking for precisely this solution, and it didn't disappoint. Revisions is a menu bar app you can access at any time. When you connect your Dropbox account, it begins indexing the entire stored history for all of your files. Depending on the type of Dropbox account you have, this ranges from 30 days (free) to forever (business account). Of course, if your Dropbox account is anything like mine – a huge folder with a…

    I first reviewed Weather Line in October 2013. As I wrote: I see Weather Line as a combination of a casual weather app for the average user like me and a more advanced solution for the data nerd who wants to know numbers and other weather stats. By sitting somewhere in the middle of these two categories, Weather Line can appeal to both kinds of users thanks to its simple but effective design that uses a line to contextualize forecasts. I have been using Weather Line alongside Apple’s Weather, Yahoo Weather, and Today, and, while I still can’t settle on just one weather app, I have…
  • John Gruber on the Apple Watch Interaction Model

    Federico Viticci
    21 May 2015 | 2:29 pm
    Watch mode is where you take quick glances at information and notifications; app mode is where you go to “do something”. Watch mode is where most people will spend the majority — perhaps the overwhelming majority — of their time using Apple Watch. App mode is a simple one-level hierarchy for “everything else”. John Gruber has a good analysis of the Apple Watch interaction model and the differences between the watch face and the app screen. I've been reading a lot of comments on the Watch OS hierarchy and I've (obviously) been using my Apple Watch as much as…

  • Are Apple Watch Sales Flagging?

    Kraig Becker
    25 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    There is no denying that the Apple Watch was a hot product upon release, selling out the initial stock in just a few minutes, and pushing shipping dates for early adopters back for weeks. In fact, sales were so brisk that the new device actually outsold all previous Android Wear models within hours of availability. But now that the initial rush to buy Apple’s latest gadget has died down, there are some indications that sales of the device have not been quite as impressive as we were once led to believe. This has prompted some analysts to cut their estimates on Apple Watch sales, and…

    It’s nothing new. Gadgets do get old, literally and figuratively, and their owners want to get rid of them at some point. The question is when. There are users who wait for the next model before selling their device. But there are also early adopters who find not too long after their purchase that they don’t want the gadget after all. You can always give your gadget to a friend or family member, but that means you don’t get any money back. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but if you need the cash, then selling is the best option. After all, there is a huge…

  • Real Multitasking to Come to the iPad [Rumor]

    Noemi Tasarra-Twigg
    21 May 2015 | 4:45 pm
    One of the reasons people use to “fight” against the iPad is the fact that it doesn’t support multitasking. Especially for people who use the tablet for work, multitasking is sure handy, but the iPad doesn’t have real multitasking capabilities. But that may be about to change, if speculation comes true. The WWDC is only weeks away, and the rumor mill says that the iPad is undergoing a radical redesign, which includes a 12-inch screen and the ability to display two apps at a time via a split-screen mode. The split-screen mode can support 1/2, 1/3, and 2/3 views, which…

Once a font is previewed, it can be activated for one hour or rented at 10 percent of its retail price per month.

  • BodyGuardz ScreenGuardz Pure + the Crown iPhone 6 screen protector review

    Kirk Hiner

    Here’s a solution to the problem Apple created when they curved the glass of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. You don’t want your screen protector to end before the curve, as that creates a hard edge that’s uncomfortable to touch and, perhaps more important, it looks terrible. BodyGuardz addressed this issue not with a screen protector that wraps over the curve, but by crowning it, as implied in the name. The ScreenGuardz Pure + the Crown are two pieces that work together to create a seamless flow from screen protector to edge frame…provided the installation goes well. The screen…

    Microsoft says Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows. Should OS X 10.11 be the last version of OS X? Microsoft's Jerry Nixon raised eyebrows at the company's Ignite conference recently. He said that Windows 10 "is the last version of Windows.". Microsoft may be on to something, and I'm wondering how well it would work for the Mac when it comes to OS X 10.11. An iterative approach might give Apple an opportunity to introduce new technology more gradually. Nixon doesn't mean that Microsoft has any plans to cancel Windows or do something else radical with it. Instead, he's talking about…

Jony Ive, the man who helped reignite Apple with the iMac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad had more operational power than the finance group, the engineering group, the services group, even the operations group. Apple, the company that put design first, put design first. For years Ive ran industrial design (ID) at Apple. When Tim Cook became CEO in the fall of 2011, he added human interface (HI) to Ive's responsibilities. The goal was to remove silos and increase collaboration. Ive, who'd long had…

    19 May 2015 | 11:25 am
    Apple has been rumored to be developing their own line of HDTVs for years, but a new report from the Wall Street Journal (paywalled) says while those plans did exist, they've been abandoned. Apple began pondering the idea of jumping into the television market roughly a decade ago, as iTunes started hosting video content. The AppleTV made a foray into living rooms in 2007, and other devices reached the prototype stage. The company continued to do research and work on their ideas, but eventually gave up more than a year ago. Apple had searched for breakthrough features to justify building an…

    Hubris. Wow. So much hubris. The first half of the video below was a promo video Apple made in 1987 under then-CEO John Scully. It was fashioned to be a fake series of clips set ten years in the future (in 1997) that showed how awesome and big Apple would be. From satellites to Macintosh psychiatrists, to even the very notion of success, it's all wrong. It features John Scully, who is proudly featured as the glorious leader of Apple in 1997, Michael Spindler, who would replace him and be fired in 1996, Steve Wozniak, who offers the most insightful comments in the piece, and Del Yoakem,…

    If you have a Facebook or Twitter account you can’t have missed seeing this article or one of the many variants reported all over the web in the last week or so. A Dutch food blogger named Sid Frisjes made the mistake of posting his failed attempt at the classic photo of himself pointing at the top of the Eiffel tower on Reddit and asking for some help to fix the original. The resulting stream of hilarious mickey takes quickly spread and was widely reported. If you want to avoid becoming the subject of world wide ridicule like Sid you might be advised to check out this article from…

      If you look at most of the images in my Mac Setups section one thing you will probably have spotted is a distinct lack of cables. The reality of a modern gadget lovers desk is that obtaining this completely minimal look is virtually impossible, even the most stripped down setups need at least a power lead. I have tried cable trays, sticky back ties, zip ties, blu-tack, insulating tape to name a few and generally end up re-cabling on a fairly regular basis to try to keep things neat and tidy. The Cablox Cable Organiser from fancy.com certainly looks like an interesting solution to the…

  • Opinion: Should AAPL stockholders be worried about Jony Ive’s more backseat role?

    Ben Lovejoy
    26 May 2015 | 5:32 am
    The Apple world this morning seems divided between those who seemingly haven’t grasped the implications of Apple’s ‘promotion’ of Jony Ive, merely taking Cook’s memo at face value, and those switching into full-on ‘Apple is doomed’ mode. The reality is, I think, a little more nuanced. It seems pretty clear that this move is, as Seth outlined earlier, about Ive taking more of a backseat role – and especially being able to spend a lot more time back in England. Apple’s decision to announce the news on a day when the US markets were closed was…

    A lot of folks are taking Sir Jonathan Ive’s just announced title of as Chief Design Officer at face value. Congratulations are in order and all that. But there is a lot more going on than a title change. Ive was willed free reign at Apple by Steve Jobs and can do or have just about anything he wants. Titles aren’t of any significance, especially to someone with as little ego and indifference to such things as Ive. There is clearly more to the story than Apple is telling us.  Announcing the role change on a US Federal holiday and effective on 2015H2 day 1 –July 1st is…

Apparently your computer is riddled with problems, junk files and wide-open to attacks that only MacKeeper’s premium version can protect you against.

But this was way out there. Apple beat most analysts expectations, provided very positive forward guidance, and…

    Microsoft has announced that it will bring its digital assistant, Cortana, to the iPhone later this year.

Similarly, the ability to invoke Cortana hands-free by saying "Hey Cortana" requires special integration with the device's…
