iSkelter, the company behind a number of desks and docks, has released a new product to help you comfortably control your Mac from a distance, the Tray Desk. The wooden tray is built to perfectly hold an Apple Wireless Keyboard, and features a dedicated area for a mouse. You can also purchase a model specifically for Apple's Magic Trackpad.

With the Tray Desk, you can sit at a distance from you Mac and still control it comfortably, without having to worry about keeping your keyboard or mouse steady. The Tray Desk is built out of hand-finished bamboo.

iSkelter is currently holding a sale on the Tray Desk, offering it for $59.99, rather than its regular price of $79.99. Additionally, orders placed before 8:00 a.m. will ship on the same day.

You can order the Tray Desk directly from iSkelter now.

So why is Apple implementing it?</p> <!--break--> <p>Malware is a really serious problem not just on Windows but the Mac too—it seems like almost every week, we get a new report of some sort of malware or adware that's attacking Apple users. Most of these outbreaks are contained quickly, fortunately, and mitigated by the built-in anti-malware and technologies like Gatekeeper.</p> <p>Apple can always do better, and in El Capitan, they have. To help bolster the Mac's security against malware infections, Apple's come up with System Integrity Protection</p> <p>Before El Capitan, people could easily modify, or allow to be modified, core system files used by OS X by entering their administrator password. It's how, for example, we grant software installers "root" access to setup apps.</p> <p>That's why, El Capitan has gone "rootless". System Integrity Protection makes sure the vital system files are safe from modification. This is a <em>good</em> thing: It should reduce the likelihood that you can accidentally infect yourself with malware, or that someone can gain access to your Mac or your files by escalating privilege exploits remotely.</p> <p>If you use system-modifying utilities and system extensions that made essential changes to the way OS X works, however, you may notice that they no longer function or need to be updated.</p> <p>SIP created problems for some developers during El Capitan's public beta development period over the summer. In many cases those problems have either been straightened out or are getting straightened out now. So <em>check with the makers of the apps you use</em> to see if they have updates.</p> <p>And of course stay tuned to iMore, because we'll report on key updates as they become available.</p> <p>Of course, you <em>do</em> have ultimate control over what happens on your Mac, so you can deactivate System Integrity Protection if you want to. I strongly advise <em>against</em> doing this, but I completely understand that you may be dependent on software that <em>has</em> to work regardless. I'll just reiterate one last time that SIP has been instituted in El Capitan for a reason: To protect you and to protect your Mac. Apple takes your privacy <em>very</em> seriously.</p> <h2>How to turn off System Integrity Protection in El Capitan</h2> <ol><li>Click the <strong></strong> menu.</li> <li>Select <strong>Restart...</strong></li> <li>Hold down <strong>command-R</strong> to boot into the Recovery System.</li> <li>Click the <strong>Utilities</strong> menu and select <strong>Terminal.</strong></li> <li>Type <tt>csrutil disable</tt> and press <strong>return</strong>.</li> <li>Close the Terminal app.</li> <li>Click the <strong></strong> menu and select <strong>Restart...</strong>.</li> </ol><p>If you decide later you want to re-engage SIP (and I <em>earnestly</em> hope that you do), repeat these steps, changing <tt>csrutil disable</tt> to <tt>csrutil enable</tt> instead.</p> <p>Again, SIP has been instituted in El Capitan for a reason — to improve OS X security, and reduce the risk of anyone who isn't supposed to from getting to your data. But as in all things, your mileage may vary.

App Store bug fixed, apps returning to purchase history

Today, 01:49 AM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News


If you were missing apps in your purchase history, good news—they're coming back!

A couple of weeks ago Mac App Store apps disappeared from the purchase history tab, making re-downloads impossible. It was a bug, Apple fixed it, and purchase histories were restored. Now a similar bug has been fixed on the iOS App Store, and purchase histories there are also being restored.

Just like with the Mac App Store, iPhone and iPad owners began noticing apps and games were missing from their purchase history earlier this week. Since the App Store is often a black box, lots of speculation followed. Fortunately, the simple answer in this case was the correct one.

Not all apps are back yet, but should be as the fix rolls out.

Note: Developers can still remove apps permanently if they choose to, for example if web services shut down or the code no longer works with modern devices. In those cases, when the apps wouldn't work anymore anyway, there's nothing to be done, even by Apple. It's the developer's call.

Otherwise, if you noticed you couldn't re-download some old apps and games, hang tight. They're on their way back!

iPad Pro, new Apple TV reportedly hitting Apple Retail St...

Today, 03:16 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News


Apple is reportedly planning to release its revamped Apple TV and iPad Pro in its retail locations in the first week of November. Both products will also apparently go up for sale online in late October.

From 9to5Mac:

The revamped Apple TV set-top-box and iPad Pro will both begin showing up in Apple Retail Stores for sale during the first week of November and will go on sale via Apple's website in late October, according to reliable sources. It is also likely that the first online orders of both products will only begin shipping to customers in early November.

Apple previously announced that the new Apple TV would go on sale in October, with the iPad Pro following at some point in November. Both products were introduced in September during Apple's iPhone event.

The iPad Pro is a 12.9-inch tablet, and brings a lot of power for a variety of tasks. It will be priced starting at $799. It also has a couple of new accessories: a keyboard case, and Apple's new Pencil stylus. The Apple TV, on the other hand, is the first major revision of Apple's set-top box since 2010. It has more powerful internal hardware, Siri support, and is capable of running third party apps. It will be available starting at $149 for 32GB of storage, and $199 for 64GB.

Maps transit directions expand to Boston and Sydney

06 Oct 2015

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

Transit directions in Maps are now available for two new cities: Boston, MA and Sydney, Australia. Residents of or visitors to the two cities can now fire up Apple Maps to get directions around the city using buses and trains.

Transit directions were one of the big new features announced for Maps in both iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan, but the number of cities supported has been rather limited from the outset. In the U.S., Maps launched with transit directions in Baltimore, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.. Other cities around the world include London, Berlin, Mexico City, Toronto, and more than 300 cities in China.

With today's additions, that list grows by two cities just weeks after the official launch of transit directions in Maps. We're sure to see transit directions expand to more locales as time wears on, but they're off to a decent start so far.

How to create folders and add apps to your iPhone 6s and...

28 Sep 2015

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News


Keep your Home screen clutter-free by creating folders.

Your iPhone and iPad Home screens can hold dozens and dozens of apps, but thanks to folders, that number leaps up to thousands. If your Home screen is getting a bit messy, consider folders to help you collect and organize apps of a similar type, color, style, or whatever specifics you dictate.

How create folders on your iPhone or iPad
  1. Go to your Home screen.
  2. Touch and hold on the app you want to create a folder for until all apps begin to jiggle and you enter Edit mode. (If you have an iPhone 6s and press too hard, you'll trigger 3D Touch; tap and hold lightly to enter Edit mode.)
  3. While continuing to hold your finger down on the app, drag it on top of another app you want in the same folder.
  4. If you don't like the automatic name iOS creates for your folder, tap the name field and change it to anything you like, then tap Done.

  5. Tap outside the folder area to return to the Home screen.
  6. Drag any additional apps that you want in the folder onto the folder.
  7. Click the Home button to exit Edit mode and complete the new folder.
How to add apps to folders on iPhone or iPad
  1. Go to your Home screen.
  2. Touch and hold on the app you want to add to your folder until all apps begin to jiggle and you enter Edit mode.
  3. While continuing to hold your finger down on the app, drag it to the folder.
  4. Release your finger to drop it into the folder.

  5. Drag any additional apps that you want onto that folder.
  6. Click the Home button to exit Edit mode.
How to remove a folder from your iPhone or iPad
  1. Go to your Home screen and tap the folder in question.
  2. Touch and hold on an app in the folder to enter Edit mode.
  3. Drag all apps out of the folder, at which point it will disappear.

Verizon to raise price of grandfathered unlimited data pl...

Today, 02:26 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

Verizon may soon be raising the price of its unlimited data plan for those who are grandfathered in if they are not under contract anymore. This report, which comes from The Verge, states that Verizon will be hiking the cost of the plan up to $49 a month, up $20 from the current $30 a month fee. The new $50 a month fee is just $5 more than the equivalent of having only 3GB of data on Verizon's current plans.

The change will only affect those who are paying month-to-month for their service, and the change will only affect less than one percent of Verizon's customers. With the price hike, Verizon will now be allowing those customers with unlimited data on the new pricing to take advantage of its device payment plans to purchase new smartphones. The change is apparently set to take place at the beginning of November.
