  • Free Ignition Tweak Brings Apple CarPlay to Your iPad

    Adam Bell has just released Ignition, a free tweak that brings Apple CarPlay to your iPad.

    Ignition runs the CarPlay UI directly on top of SpringBoard without the need for a vehicle. This makes it very useful for anyone who has their iPad mounted in the car.

    Notably, while Ignition is meant for iPad, and iPhones “aren’t really supported”, you can use it with an iPhone 6 Plus if you really want to.

  • Apple Launches Boxing Day Sale on iTunes Music in Canada

    Apple has launched a Boxing Day sale on iTunes Music in Canada.

    Boxing Day is a holiday traditionally celebrated the day after Christmas. It’s similar to Black Friday in the U.S.A. with retailers offering significant discounts usually resulting in the busiest shopping day of the year.

    It’s unclear if Apple will be offering any retail store discounts this year; however, the iTunes Store is offering limited time discounts on various albums categorized into: Hot in 2014, Essential Albums, Discovery Artists, and Musique Francophone.

  • Google Now Streaming 'The Interview' on Google Play and YouTube Movies

    Google has officially announced that it’s made ‘The Interview’ available to rent or buy via Google Play and YouTube Movies.

    Last Wednesday Sony began contacting a number of companies, including Google, to ask if we’d be able to make their movie, “The Interview,” available online. We’d had a similar thought and were eager to help—though given everything that’s happened, the security implications were very much at the front of our minds.

    Of course it was tempting to hope that something else would happen to ensure this movie saw the light of day. But after discussing all the issues, Sony and Google agreed that we could not sit on the sidelines and allow a handful of people to determine the limits of free speech in another country (however silly the content might be).

  • Apple Reportedly Declined Offer From Sony Pictures to Stream 'The Interview' on iTunes

    Apple reportedly declined an offer form Sony Pictures to stream the controversial film “The Interview” on iTunes. According to The New York Times, Apple showed no interest to stream the film, especially with the speedy time table Sony was requesting.

    It remained unclear, however, whether any on-demand service would take “The Interview.” According to people briefed on the matter, Sony had in recent days asked the White House for help in lining up a single technology partner — Apple, which operates iTunes — but the tech company was not interested, at least not on a speedy time table. An Apple spokesman declined to comment.

    “The Interview” has become a highly-anticipated film after it was cancelled by Sony Pictures. Hackers (presumably with ties to North Korea) breached Sony’s internal systems and leaked terabytes of data. Additionally, the hackers threatened any theater that participated in the movie’s release, which was slated for December 25 — Christmas Day; however, Sony changed its plans and is now releasing the film in online, through its website, and some theaters.

  • Auxo 3 Tweak for iOS 8 Released

    Auxo 3, a new version of the popular jailbreak tweak, has been released for iOS 8. Auxo 3 builds on many of the powerful enhancements Auxo 2 delivered, while bringing new features as well. Just like its predecessor, the tweak was designed by Sentry and developed by A3 tweaks.

    At its core, Auxo 3 is comprised of three powerful features: Multi-Center, Quick Switcher, and Hot Corners. By intuitively utilizing the bottom edge of the screen, all three functions perform synergistically with one another as well as completely stand-alone, depending on your configuration.

    Multi-Center gives you the ability to slide up from the bottom middle edge of the screen to access your Multitasking display, without losing the vital functionality traditionally found only in Control Center. Here you have access to the app switcher, brightness and volume sliders, playback controls and info, toggles, AirDrop and AirPlay, as well as the quick launcher (via a swipe up from the bottom, if hidden). Multi-Center also lets you expand app previews by pulling them downward, view full-screen album art by tapping the track title (hold to open app), and even beautifully close all apps by swiping the home screen preview up! Use Minimal Display mode for a cleaner look by hiding AirDrop/AirPlay and track seeker sections (still accessible via a swipe near the top or bottom).

  • Apple Patent Shows Reverse AirPlay Streaming from an Apple TV to iOS Device

    Apple has just been awarded a patent that outlines reverse AirPlay from an Apple TV to an iOS device. Specifically, the patent describes synchronizing a video stream on a fixed display, such as an Apple TV, with other smaller devices like an iPhone or an Apple Watch.

    A method and system are described for displaying a synchronized instance of content on a portable electronic device. In the described embodiments, a selection of streaming content that is being displayed on a fixed display system is received by the portable electronic device. The portable electronic device then determines if the portable electronic device is compatible with the streaming content being received by the fixed display system. If the portable electronic device is compatible with the streaming content being received by the fixed display system, then the portable electronic device requests the synchronized instance of the streaming content and displays it.

    Apple describes a scenario where a group of people are watching a movie on an Apple TV, and one person has to leave. The group could either pause the movie and wait, or simple keep watching and let the person who left miss out on programming. Apple’s solution is to enable the user who leaves the room temporarily to keep watching on portable devices (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch).

  • iOS 8 Adoption Inches Up 1% in December to Reach 64% [Chart]

    Apple has announced that iOS 8 adoption has reached 64% as measured by the App Store on December 22nd. That’s an increase of just 1% from December 8 when Apple last measured the number.

    Adoption of iOS 8 was initially slower than iOS 7; however, it has been increasing steadily. Holiday sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are also likely to increase usage of the new operating system. It will be interesting to see how Christmas Day activations of new devices impact iOS 8’s adoption rate.

  • Apple-backed Rockstar Consortium to Sell Patent Portfolio for $900 Million

    Apple-backed Rockstar Consortium has agreed to sell more than 4,000 patents to San Francisco based RPX for $900 million.

    Rockstar originally paid $4.5 billion for the patent portfolio in 2011. The company consists of Apple, Microsoft, BlackBerry, Ericsson and Sony Corp who originally purchased 6,000 patents from Nortel Networks when it went bankrupt. The companies kept 4,000 patents in Rockstar’s portfolio and distribute the remaining 2,000 among each other.

    RPX confirmed that it will license the patents to a separate syndicate of 30 other technology companies including Google and Cisco.

  • Apple Considering iPhone 6s Mini with 4-Inch Display?

    While Apple moved away from the 4-inch iPhone this year, analyst Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company claims Apple has been working on a new 4-inch “iPhone 6s Mini” that could debut in 2015.

    According to Arcuri, Apple could debut iPhones with three different screen sizes in 2015 with the iPhone 6s Mini joining the current 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models. The new 4-inch device would be similar to the iPhone 5s, but feature an updated design with curved screen edges — similar to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

    The new 4-inch phone could serve as a replacement for the iPhone 5c that Apple currently sells; however, Arcuri believes the newer model will include “purpose-built low cost components” from Qualcomm to keep the price down.

  • Apple Campus 2 Aerial Tour [Video]

    A new aerial video of the Apple Campus 2 has been posted online by AppleInsider showing progress on the ‘spaceship’ ring and parking garage. There are now over a dozen large cranes operating at the site.

    The bare, compacted soil fill of the excavated spaceship ring structure is now completely covered, with concrete joists now being laid out to build a floor structure. Earth ramps extending down into the ring floor are all gone; vehicles access is now provided through channels that will eventually connect to a rebuilt Pruneridge roadway that ducks underground to send cars beneath the surface to either the basement of the ring or to the two large parking structures at the south end of the site.

    In the photos below you can also see that Apple’s underground theater is starting taking shape and the parking structure has now reached three stories. Recent building permits reveal the auditorium is valued at $161 million.

  • Apple CEO Tim Cook Named CNN's 'CEO of the Year'

    Apple CEO Tim Cook has been selected as CNN’s CEO of the Year.

    Apple is the apple of Wall Street’s eye again. And that’s why Tim Cook is our choice for best CEO of 2014.The stock is up 40% this year and near an all-time high thanks to the launch of the latest iPhones and Apple Pay service as well as excitement about the Apple Watch due out in 2015.

    Who is Tim Cook? Cook has arguably the toughest CEO job in America. He’s had to convince skeptics that Apple (AAPL, Tech30) can still innovate after the death of Steve Jobs. He’s proven all the naysayers wrong.

  • Apple is Still Struggling to Keep Up With iPhone 6 Demand [Chart]

    Apple is still struggling to keep up with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus demand months after launching the new smartphones, reports Piper Jaffray.

    Surveys conducted by analyst Gene Munster found that only 56% of core configuration were in stock as of last Friday, December 12th. He believes that availability will improve to 80% by the end of the quarter; however, expectations were that Apple would reach 100% in-stock before the end of December.

    Notably, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus availability is actually slightly down from last month when Munster’s survey of 80 Apple Stores found that 58% of models were in-stock on November 14th. In October, only 6% of models were in stock.

  • Apple Airs New Holiday Ad: 'The Song' [Video]

    Apple has aired a new holiday ad entitled, ‘The Song’.

    With a Mac, iPhone or iPad you have the power to create thoughtful, emotional gifts and memories that transcend time. It could be a movie, a homemade card or a song that brings two generations closer together.

    The ad features a girl who comes across a record apparently recorded by her grandmother for her husband when they couldn’t be together for the holidays. She then learns to sing and play the song on her guitar and keyboard. One morning when grandmother comes down to the table, she finds an iPad with headphones and the message, “A Duet. Press Play”. The young girl has re-recorded the song singing and playing alongside the original, bringing her grandmother to tears.

  • Former iTunes Engineer Tells Court Apple Worked to Block Competitors

    During an ongoing federal antitrust case Apple is currently facing, a former iTunes engineer testified that he worked on a project that was “intended to block 100% of non-iTunes clients” and “keep out third-party players” that competed with the iPod.

    The plaintiffs subpoenaed Rod Schultz, the former engineer, to show that Apple had worked to block any iTunes or iPod competitors. The plaintiffs argue that Apple’s action to hurt competition ultimately rose iPod prices from 2006 to 2009.

    Schultz testified in an untucked dress shirt and leather jacket, saying he was an unwilling witness. “I did not want to be talking about” his work on iTunes from 2006-2007, part of which was code-named “Candy,” he said.

  • In-Depth Design Comparison of Apple Maps vs. Google Maps

    UX Launchpad has posted an in-depth design comparison of Apple Maps vs. Google Maps on Medium. The post is very extensive and goes through every aspect of the mapping applications to compare and contrast the approaches of two highly skilled teams working on a pretty unique design challenge.

    Design is simply “deciding how a thing should be,” as William says in his book. But every decision has a tradeoff. Every thing you make easier can make another thing harder. There is no such thing as “the right design”. But we can learn a lot from seeing how experts in their field weighed the pros and cons of different approaches.

    UX Launchpad is a one day, hands-on, fun design course in Seattle. It’s run by Jon Bell, a designer at Twitter, and William Van Hecke, the design lead of the multiple-award-winning Omni Group and author of Learning iOS Design.

  • Apple's Glass Lantern Store Wins Supreme Award for Structural Engineering Excellence

    The Institution of Structural Engineers has awarded the Apple’s ‘Glass Lantern’ Zorlu Store with its Supreme Award for Structural Engineering Excellence. The award is granted at the Judges’ discretion to recognize the finest example of structural engineering in a given year.

    This latest iteration of structural glass design provides the purest form possible within the limits of current material fabrication. Clear glazed single panel walls with no connections to distract the eye, 10m long by 3m high on four sides, provide an efficient structural form capable of resisting seismic loads, while providing total transparency and architectural purity. The lightweight ultra-thin roof made of CFRP panels (carbon fibre reinforced plastic) seamlessly joined on site, provides a completely smooth uniform soffit while also improving the seismic performance of the whole structure. In such a minimalist project the detailing required particular attention, the result being a total absence of fixings, with the five panels being held together by structural silicone.

    “The judges found this to be a supreme example of collaboration between engineer and fabricator to achieve an outstanding, architecturally minimalist structure. The use of single panes of toughened laminated glass to support a lightweight ultra-thin CFRP roof without connections other than structural silicone, takes structural glass technology into a new dimension. A project where only engineering excellence and attention to detail can produce a result of such simplicity and purity of expression.”

  • T-Mobile Introduces Unlimited 4G LTE Family Plan

    T-Mobile has announced a new family plan with unlimited 4G LTE data for the entire family and a multi-line family discount. Available today, the Simple Choice family plan starts at $100 per month for two people – and goes all the way up to 10 people for just $40 more per line.

    —–
    This holiday season, the traditional carriers are flooding the airwaves with a mishmash of confusing shared data promotions. Between them, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon have 24 different family and promotional rate plans, and, not surprisingly, 81 percent of people recently polled describe all the data promotions in the wireless industry as “somewhat confusing” or “very confusing.” And a full 75 percent say they “hate” policing their own family members’ data usage on the carrier’s shared data plans, while more than 40 percent say they often worry about overage penalties on those plans.

    T-Mobile said it’s time to put a stop to the madness. It’s time to free wireless customers from having to decipher confusing gigabyte promotions, from policing their own family’s data usage and from punishing overage charges. The Un-carrier is cutting through the clutter and complexity with a radically simple idea: everyone on your family plan uses as much data as they want. And, you can do it at a better price without ever worrying about domestic overages.
    —–

    In addition to the unlimited 4G LTE family plan, T-Mobile touts features including no annual service contracts or domestic overages, unlimited talk and text, unmetered music streaming on the company’s nationwide network, plus unlimited data and texting in 120+ countries and destinations, next-gen Wi-Fi calling and free in-flight messaging, among other benefits.

    “Of course, every single T-Mobile Simple Choice postpaid customer immediately qualifies to take advantage of this offer. That’s how the Un-carrier does it, putting our customers first,” said CEO John Legere. “But not the carriers. Last week, one of them launched a new promotion that not one of their existing customers could get. That makes my head spin, and it’s exactly the kind of BS we’re on a mission to end.”

    You can check out a side-by-side comparison of the costs and benefits of a typical family of four posted by T-Mobile below.

    The plan is only available for a limited time but once you’re on it there is no planned expiration date.
