Exclusive video: Apple’s new "spaceship" Campus 2 is figuratively taking off

0 comments


Friday, October 17, 2014, 05:28 pm PT (08:28 pm ET)

In yesterday’s keynote, Apple’s software chief Craig Federighi joked about rumors of the new Apple Campus 2 being an actual spaceship capable of literally taking off. The project is, however, figuratively taking off, with incredible progress visible over just the last month, evident particularly in the parking structures now under construction.

In early September, AppleInsider presented exclusive aerial shots of the construction project showing its iconic ring taking shape.

Two weeks later, additional progress was apparent on the central ring, while the parking structure along the freeway was just getting started (above, looking south toward the freeway).

Today, just one month later, that parking structure has now rapidly progressed to the point where more than half of the second level has been installed, and vertical wall sections are circling nearly the entire outline of the initial parking structure (below, looking north over the freeway).

A large excavation pit—visible towards the middle of the east side of the site—appears to be the underground theater Apple is incorporating into the project, which will allow the company to host large media events and other on its campus.

Not really taking off literally

During yesterday’s keynote featuring new iPads, Mac minis and the new Retina 5K iMac, Federighi demonstrated new Continuity Handoff features in the latest version of iWork apps, working across iPhones and iPads using iOS 8 and a Mac running the new OS X Yosemite.

Federighi edited images and Keynote slides portraying comical security measures inside the company, in a segment that featured comedian Stephen Colbert, patched in via a Bluetooth Continuity phone conversation.

Referencing a link to the fictional rumor blog “Infinite Scoop,” Federighi said, “these usually have no merit at all, but I’ll just check in and see what this is all about,” presenting (above) a depiction of the headline “Apple ‘spaceship’ an actual spaceship! Local residents alarmed.”

Teardown of 27" Retina iMac reveals identical parts, construction as last-gen model

0 comments


Friday, October 17, 2014, 05:30 pm PT (08:30 pm ET)

The team at iFixit recently completed a teardown of Apple’s new iMac with 5K Retina display and found the all-in-one to be nearly identical to previous models, save for the ultra high-resolution screen.

Source:iFixit

Images of the teardown process were posted to iFixit’s website on Friday, showing the internal components and overall construction of Apple’s latest iMac are virtually the same as last year’s revision.

The one big change, as made obvious by the computer’s name, is the 27-inch 5,120-by-2,880 pixel 5K Retina panel that Apple managed to squeeze into the slim aluminum chassis. In this case, the screen was made by LG, a known Apple supplier that provides Retina displays for other products like the Retina MacBook Pro and certain iPad models.

When Apple revealed the new iMac on Thursday, it touted a slew of new technologies created just for the huge Retina display, including a specialized timing controller iFixit found attached to a long, thin circuit board running the length of the panel. Other chips found on the display board:

  • Texas Instruments NH245 8-Bit Dual-Supply Bus Transceiver
  • Texas Instruments BUF16821 Programmable Gamma-Voltage Generator and Vcom Calibrator
  • Parade Technologies DP665 LCD Timing Controller (possibly an Apple modified version of the DP663 LCD Timing Controller)
  • Texas Instruments TPS65270 Monolithic Dual Synchronous Buck Regulator
  • Texas Instruments TPS65168 High Resolution Fully Programmable LCD Bias IC for TV

The data cable running between the logic board and display is wider in the Retina iMac to support additional bandwidth requirements. The remainder of the build is almost exactly the same as the non-Retina 27-inch iMac.

Apple did take the opportunity to refresh the iMac’s processor and GPU, however, and the new models come with next-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, as well as AMD Radeon 290X and 295X graphics units.

The new iMac with Retina 5K display is currently available for order from the Online Apple Store and MacMall.com ($2,494.00), with MacMall offering the added benefit of only collecting sales tax in a handful of states. More resellers are expected to start carrying the product over the next few weeks and those in the market can check AppleInsider’s Price Guides for the latest stock information.

iCloud Drive allows OS X Yosemite users to store any type of file in the cloud

0 comments


Friday, October 17, 2014, 11:09 pm PT (02:09 am ET)

The launch of OS X Yosemite has brought online Apple’s new iCloud Drive, which not only automatically syncs data from Mac and iOS applications, but also for the first time allows Mac users to upload and organize any file types on their own.

Apple’s newly updated cross-platform storage service works similar to existing properties like Dropbox or Google Drive. Upon updating to Yosemite, users can store any type of file they wish in iCloud drive, as long as it’s less than 15 gigabytes in size.

iCloud Drive file access is available in Yosemite by opening Finder and accessing the new cloud-based storage option under the Favorites menu.

Apple also offers access to iCloud Drive through icloud.com, using Safari 6, Firefox 22, or Google Chrome 28 or later. It’s also available on a Windows 7 PC or later with iCloud for Windows 4.0.

There is currently not an official iCloud Drive client for iOS, but official Apple apps like Pages, Numbers and Keynote, as well as third-party apps updated with support for the service, can store files to the cloud automatically.

In addition, a free third-party app called iCloud Drive Explorer is available on the App Store, allowing suers to view all of the files they have saved remotely and even open them in their respective apps.

As before, iCloud is also used to sync information such as contacts, to back up photos, and to perform iPhone and iPad backups and restores.

All of these features are under a new pricing structure for iCloud. While a new account comes with 5 gigabytes of free storage, users can upgrade to 20 gigabytes for 99 cents per month, 200 gigabytes for $3.99 per month, 500 gigabytes for $9.99 per month, or 1 terabyte for $19.99 per month.

And as always, purchase music, movies or TV shows from the iTunes Store, content from the App Store, and digital titles from the iBookstore do not count against a user’s iCloud storage.

It should be noted that iCloud Drive requires iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, so legacy devices running Mavericks or iOS 7 will not be able to keep their documents up to date with other devices. In addition, once a user has upgraded to iCloud Drive, they cannot downgrade back to Documents in the Cloud.

For more, see AppleInsider’s ongoing OS X Yosemite Tips series.

Handoff in OS X Yosemite makes it easy to transition between your Mac, iPhone & iPad

0 comments


Friday, October 17, 2014, 11:20 am PT (02:20 pm ET)

This week’s launch of OS X Yosemite enables Mac users to tap into the Handoff function introduced last month with iOS 8, making it simple to jump back and forth between a Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Here’s how to set up Handoff and use it.

As with other continuity features between iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, users must be signed into the same iCloud Apple ID on their devices for data to be automatically shared between them. In addition, Bluetooth must be enabled, and all devices must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

To transition from an iPhone or iPad to a Mac, make sure that the iOS 8 device is unlocked and that the content desired to be handed off is active. For example, have a website open on your unlocked iPhone before moving to your Mac.

Whatever content is open on the iPhone will be displayed in the form of an icon on the far left side of the OS X Yosemite dock. The respective application’s icon will be displayed, along with a small black-and-white indicator showing either an iPhone or iPad.

The same also works in reverse, from a Mac to an iPhone. For example, open the Maps application on your Mac running OS X Yosemite and select a destination.

With the Maps application still open and selected on your Mac, a locked iPhone screen will display the appropriate icon’s application in the bottom left corner. Simply swipe the icon upward to automatically launch the application along with the associated data — in this case, a destination in Maps.

If your iPhone is already unlocked and being used, you do not need to lock it to access data from Handoff. The same information can be accessed by double-pressing the home button to bring up the multitasking view, and then scrolling to the left past the home screen to find a tile representing the content open on the Mac.

Handoff works with Apple’s native apps for Mail, Safari, Messages, Reminders, Calendar, Contacts, Pages, Numbers and Keynote. Third-party applications can also add support for Handoff using Apple’s developer tools.

Using Handoff, users can start a document, email or message on one device, and quickly pick up where they left off on another.

Handoff can be enabled on an iOS 8 device by launching the Settings application, choosing General, and then “Handoff Suggested Apps.”

To toggle the feature in OS X Yosemite, open System Preferences on your Mac, choose General, and check or uncheck “Allow Handoff between this Mac and your iCloud devices.”

Some users have reported difficulty in getting Handoff to work after updating to OS X Yosemite. It’s been said that logging out of an iCloud account and then logging back in on all devices helps to resolve the issue.

Handoff requires an iPhone 5 or newer; a mid-2012 or newer MacBook Air or MacBook Pro; an iMac or Mac mini made since late 2012; or a late 2013 Mac Pro. It also works with a fourth-generation iPad or newer, any iPad mini model, or a fifth-generation iPod touch.

Apple removes all Bose products from its online store

0 comments


Friday, October 17, 2014, 12:18 pm PT (03:18 pm ET)

Following the news that a lawsuit between Apple’s Beats and Bose had been settled, all Bose products — including both headphones and speakers — have been removed from Apple’s online store.

A rumor first surfaced a week ago claiming that Apple was planning to remove Bose sound products from its stores. On Friday, that became a reality, when all of the company’s headphones and speakers disappeared from the online storefront.

Though the products are no longer available for purchase, as of Friday afternoon queries such as “Bose Headphones” and “Bose Speaker System” still showed up in the search bar as suggested topics.

As of Friday, Bose products still showed up as suggested searches, but were not available to purchase through Apple.

As of last week, Apple’s online store listed a total of 17 Bose products, including a range of SoundLink Bluetooth speakers, and its popular QuietComfort series of noise-canceling headphones.

It was Bose’s noise-canceling technology that prompted the company to file a lawsuit against Beats in July, accusing its Studio and Studio Wireless series of infringing on its patents. But one week ago, Bose announced in court that it had settled its patent infringement lawsuit against Apple’s Beats.

It’s unknown whether the removal of Bose products from Apple’s store was part of the terms of the settlement or if another reason was at play. The settlement between Beats and Bose remains confidential.

Bose products in Apple’s store last week. As of Friday they were removed.

It could also be that Apple simply prefers to spotlight its own brand rather than competing products from Bose. The company purchased Beats for $3 billion — Apple’s largest-ever acquisition — back in May.

Also a potential reason is a public spat between Apple’s Beats brand and Bose over sponsorship deals. The National Football League has banned its players from wearing Beats products when conducting interviews, including 90 minutes following the end of a game, because of an exclusive partnership that has made Bose the official audio sponsor of the league.

The issue came to a head last week when it was revealed that the NFL had fined San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick $10,000 for wearing a pair of pink breast cancer awareness-themed Beats headphones at a post-game press conference.

Apple executive Jimmy Iovine, who cofounded Beats, commented on the controversy last week and said he was thankful for it, concluding that pressure from Bose has resulted in cheap publicity for Beats. He said that players are now putting black tape over the Beats logo to avoid fines from the NFL.

“It’s like, I can’t believe I’m this lucky,” Iovine said. “I feel like sending them the tape.”

American Express prepares customers for Apple Pay launch, details setup procedure

0 comments


Friday, October 17, 2014, 02:57 pm PT (05:57 pm ET)

In an email sent out to credit card holders on Friday, American Express announced integration with Apple Pay and outlined steps users need to take in order to get the payment system up and running on their mobile device.

As seen in the screenshot above, American Express is prepping for its upcoming integration with Apple’s Apple Pay mobile and Internet payments solution. At its iPad event on Thursday, Apple said Apple Pay services are scheduled to launch next Monday when the company releases iOS 8.1.

While the basic procedure for entering in credit card credentials has been revealed in previous reports, American Express offers a few interesting tidbits of information regarding account linking and monitoring.

Of note, the company says American Express users who already have cards on file with iTunes need only to confirm ownership by entering the card’s security code into Passbook. This suggests Apple will pre-populate Passbook with credit cards linked to iTunes or Apple ID accounts.

The American Express note also confirmed that users will have real-time access to account details through Apple Pay, even for purchases made with plastic cards. In addition, the company is building extensibility features into its Amex Mobile iOS app, allowing customers to monitor account activity, access rewards and offers and request service.

Apple Pay is slated to roll out on Oct. 20 with full support for touchless NFC payments using the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus at supported point-of-sale terminals. At launch, Apple Pay will be accepted at more than 220,000 locations in the U.S. and supports all three major credit card networks. AppleInsider has curated a rolling list of retail outlets that will offer support at launch or plan to do so in the coming weeks.
