Tim Cook talks universal search on the Apple TV

Yesterday, 04:23 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

In a recent interview, Tim Cook discussed the new, universal search feature on the upcoming Apple TV. While at launch the search feature will show results from iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and Showtime, Cook expects developers to incorporate search into their TV apps quickly thanks to the tvOS search API.

From Buzzfeed:

And Apple's confident that they will do just that. "I think that many, many people will want to be in that search," Cook said. "And that's great for users. Think about your experience today. Even if you're fortunate enough to have the content you want to watch in an app, you sometimes don't remember exactly where that show is, so you're going to Netflix or Hulu or Showtime. You shouldn't have to do that. It should be very simple."

Cook also said that universal search will make clear just where a particular piece of content is, and it will display seasons and episodes on all services in which they can be found, in addition to iTunes.

The new Apple TV, with its universal search and support for third party apps, will be available at some point this month. Developer recently began recieving hardware kits for the box, allowing them to test apps, including those supporting universal search, on actual devices.

BBC finally ditching Adobe Flash in favor of HTML5 for iP...

01 Oct 2015

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News


The BBC is slowly moving away from Adobe's Flash plugin for iPlayer. The company has rolled out HTML5 playback support for those who'd prefer to test out the arguably more secure platform. While the BBC will provide the choice between the two options, it has noted that Flash will not be removed completely.

The new player is supported on most modern browsers, including Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge, as well as Safari on iOS. The team behind the implementation will work through the next few months to improve the HTML5 player to match the capabilities of the Flash counterpart.

If you wish to opt-in the beta, you'll need to head to this webpage, after which you should see a HTML5 banner on the video player alerting you that you're now part of the test phase.

How to turn off system integrity protection on OS X (but...

02 Oct 2015

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p><a href='http://www.imore.com...p-malware-away'title="How to turn off system integrity protection on OS X (but don't)"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large_wm_brw/public/field/image/2015/09/os-x-el-capitan-macbook-pro-privacy-hero.jpg?itok=zdcAsyne' /></a></p> <p class="intro">El Capitan makes it harder than ever for malware to be a problem on the Mac thanks to System Integrity Protection.</p> <p>System Integrity Protection (SIP) is a new way of managing access to essential system files in <a href="http://www.imore.com/os-x-el-capitan">OS X El Capitan</a>, but it's kicking some older software to the curb. 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 snaps up U.K. speech recognition startup VocalIQ

02 Oct 2015

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Apple has purchased a U.K.-based startup called VocalIQ. The company apparently focuses on natural language processing technology, which allows users to speak to their devices in a more natural fashion, like the technology already behind Siri. VocalIQ specifically uses machine learning to build out its services, an area that Apple has shown an increased interest in as of late.
From the Financial Times:

While VocalIQ's speech processing and machine learning technology could be incorporated into devices from wearables to the connected home, the company was particularly focused on in-car applications. This included a collaboration with General Motors.

When asked about the acquisition, Apple gave its standard response:

"Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans," Apple said in a statement confirming the deal.

Apple has reportedly been pursuing new hires in artificial intelligence and machine learning for some time now. Apple has also made some strides in more consumer-facing artificial intelligence features, particularly with iOS 9, which includes smarter search and a more intelligent Siri.

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.
