Apple confirms iMessage bug is crashing iPhones

Today, 08:02 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Apple has confirmed the existence of the “Unicode of Death” security exploit in iMessages. “We are aware of an iMessage issue caused by a specific series of unicode characters and we will make a fix available in a software update,”<span class="ellipsis">…</span><div class="read-more"><a href="http://www.cultofmac...-iphones/">Readmore ›</a></div><img width='1' height='1' src='http://cultofmac.com.feedsportal.com/c/33797/f/606249/s/46b2fac8/sc/15/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228858200265/u/3/f/606249/c/33797/s/46b2fac8/sc/15/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228858200265/u/3/f/606249/c/33797/s/46b2fac8/sc/15/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228858200265/u/3/f/606249/c/33797/s/46b2fac8/sc/15/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228858200265/u/3/f/606249/c/33797/s/46b2fac8/sc/15/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228858200265/u/3/f/606249/c/33797/s/46b2fac8/sc/15/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228858200265/u/3/f/606249/c/33797/s/46b2fac8/sc/15/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228858200265/u/3/f/606249/c/33797/s/46b2fac8/sc/15/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228858200265/u/3/f/606249/c/33797/s/46b2fac8/sc/15/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/228858200265/u/3/f/606249/c/33797/s/46b2fac8/sc/15/a2t.img" border="0"/>

Apple Watch Shown Charging Through 6-Pin Diagnostic Port...

Today, 09:40 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Earlier this month, the team behind the battery-boosting "<a href="http://reservestrap.com">ReserveStrap</a>" for the Apple Watch suggested it was possible to use the hidden <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/04/23/apple-watch-diagnostic-port-confirmed/">6-pin diagnostic port</a> in the Apple Watch <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/05/04/reserve-strap-new-design/">to charge the device</a>, and today they've backed up their claims with a video demonstration. <br/> <br/> In the video, an Apple Watch charging on a standard inductive charger is depicted next to one said to be charged through a power supply connected to the 6-pin port on the device. The watch being charged through the port charges slightly faster than the watch on an inductive charger, reaching a 95 percent charge at the same point the other watch reaches a 90 percent charge. <br/> <br/> <center><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/NOuUroPZE14" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></center> <br/> The team behind the Reserve Strap for the Apple Watch plans to use the port to create a band with a backup battery inside, allowing the Apple Watch to be charged while it's on the wrist. The product is still in the early stages of development, but it's available for pre-order for $250 from the <a href="http://reservestrap.com/products/reserve-strap">company's website</a>. <br/> <br/> The Reserve Strap is not currently certified under Apple's recently released <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/05/04/apple-watch-bands-dev-guide/">accessory program for the Apple Watch</a>, which will allow manufacturers and accessory makers to create approved third-party bands for the device. Apple has outlined a specific set of rules for Apple Watch bands, preventing them from blocking any sensors on the device, but its guidelines do not mention bands that access the 6-pin port. For that reason, Apple's position on Reserve Strap's use of the 6-pin port is unclear. <br/> <br/> Apple has not confirmed what purpose the 6-pin port serves, but speculation has suggested it is used by the company for diagnostic purposes. Apple may also be using the port internally for charging, as detailed in documents covering the <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/05/20/apple-watch-display-unit-disassembled/">function of its in-store Apple Watch displays</a>. <br/> <br/> It is not known if Apple has plans to expand the usage of the 6-pin port in the future, but <em>TechCrunch</em> <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/03/05/apple-watch-diagnostic-port/">has hypothesized</a> that the port could eventually be used for "smart band" accessories to bring additional functionality to the Apple Watch.<img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/35070/f/648326/s/46b347fa/sc/28/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/a2.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://adchoice.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/ach.htm"><img src="http://adchoice.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/ach.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/a2t.img" border="0"/><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi2.feedsportal.com/r/228766050034/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b347fa/sc/28/a2t2.img" border="0"/><div class="feedflare">

<p>Apple appears to be testing same-day delivery for some of its products in select markets for customers using the Apple Store app on iOS. First noticed by <a href="http://www.macrumors...-day-delivery/"target="_blank">MacRumors</a>, same-day shipping options fulfilled by the on-demand shipping service Postmates now appear for certain items when checking out with the app.</p>
<p>Not at all in-stock items qualify for the $19 flat rate same-day shipping option, however. The option doesn’t seem to be available within the Apple Store app for all markets with Apple Stores that <a href="https://postmates.com"target="_blank">Postmates</a> serves, either, suggesting the same-day delivery option is being tested on a small scale for now.</p>
<p>Apple recently updated the <a href="https://itunes.apple...&#38;at=10laZc"target="_blank">Apple Store app for iOS</a>, adding support for Touch ID to view order information and 2-step verification for added security. The update also highlighted availability in more countries around the world, but Postmates integration and same-day delivery options have not yet been officially announced.</p><br />Filed under: <a href='http://9to5mac.com/category/apps/'>Apps</a> Tagged: <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/apple-store/'>Apple Store</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/postmates/'>Postmates</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/same-day-delivery/'>same-day delivery</a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gocomments/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/comments/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godelicious/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/delicious/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gofacebook/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/facebook/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gotwitter/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/twitter/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gostumble/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/stumble/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godigg/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/digg/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/goreddit/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/reddit/9to5mac.wordpress.com/381827/" /></a> <img alt="" border="0" src="http://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=9to5mac.com&blog=22754319&post=381827&subd=9to5mac&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1" /><p>Check out <a href="http://9to5mac.com">9to5Mac</a> for more breaking coverage of <a href="http://9to5mac.com/category/apps/">Apps</a>, <a href="http://9to5mac.com/tag/apple-store/">Apple Store</a>, and <a href="http://9to5mac.com/tag/postmates/">Postmates</a>.</p><p>What do you think? <strong><a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/05/27/apple-store-app-same-day-delivery/#comments">Discuss "Apple Store app offering limited same-day delivery through Postmates in select&nbsp;cities" with our community.</a></strong></p><div class="inlinead"><a href="http://rss.buysellads.com/click.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a715efcc79f88&a=1432763623&c=1401109526" target="_blank"><img src="http://rss.buysellads.com/img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a715efcc79f88&a=1432763623&c=1401109526" border="0" alt="" /></a></div>

CBS will ‘probably’ sign Apple TV deal, if the money’s right

The new Apple TV streaming service might not be launching as soon as we hoped, but when it does, CBS will probably be part of the package.

Improved Apple Watch SDK will drastically improve third-p...

Today, 07:55 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<div id="rss-wrap">
<div><a name="page-1"></a></div>

<p>We've always known that Apple would release a native SDK for the Apple Watch, something third-party developers could use to make more useful applications than the <a href="http://arstechnica.c...beta/">WatchKitones</a> that are currently shipping. In <a href="http://recode.net/2015/05/27/apple-to-preview-watch-developer-kit-next-month/">a talk at Re/code's Code Conference</a> today, Apple SVP of Operations Jeff Williams shared some new details about the native SDK and when we can expect to get it.</p>
<p>Apple will provide a beta version of the SDK a week after its Worldwide Developer Conference keynote on June 8, which means that we'll probably get more information about it during the keynote. A final version will be distributed in the fall, which is when we'll begin seeing our first native watch apps from developers.</p>
<p>While WatchKit apps and Glances are limited, mostly static screens that rely entirely on the connected iPhone for processing, native third-party apps should be a bit more flexible. Williams says that native apps will be able to access the watch's sensors (which would hopefully include the heart rate sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, and barometer) and the Digital Crown, and that the native SDK would include more tools for game developers. Game developers are already experimenting with WatchKit, of course, but <a href="http://arstechnica.c...watch/">workingaround its limitations is challenging</a>.</p>

Apple Store App Gains Postmates Integration With Same-Day...

Today, 07:53 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Apple is now offering same-day delivery of certain products in its <em>Apple Store</em> app, through a partnership with Postmates. In the San Francisco Bay Area, the <em>Apple Store</em> app is offering a same day delivery option on products that are available in local Apple Stores. <br/> <br/> For example, ordering an Apple TV in the San Francisco Bay Area results in a four-hour same-day delivery window, as does an order for a Lightning cable. In some areas, like San Francisco, delivery turnaround times are as fast as an hour, but for some products, delivery times can take up to a day. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors...applestore.jpg"alt="deliverstodaypostmatesapplestore" width="800" height="708" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-452133" /> <br/> Customers who have Postmates delivery options available to them will see same-day delivery options listed whenever they search for a product that is available for purchase in a nearby Apple Store. After an order is placed, the <em>Apple Store</em> app offers live tracking options that let customers know where an item is and track it as it progresses from the Apple Store to the delivery location. The app also delivers notifications with estimated delivery times and tracking information. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/05/postmatecouriertrackingapplestore.jpg" alt="postmatecouriertrackingapplestore" width="800" height="708" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-452134" /> <br/> Customers who do not live in an area where Postmates delivers will not see same-day delivery options for Apple products, instead receiving only standard shipment delivery times without an option for Courier Delivery. <br/> <br/> Apple products have long been available for order through Postmates' own iOS app, but this is the first time that Apple's offered same-day delivery on orders in its own <em>Apple Store</em> app. All deliveries carry a $19 fee, regardless of item price. <br/> <br/> Postmates operates in several major U.S. cities, including San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Atlanta, Denver, San Diego, Orange County, Portland, Phoenix, Austin, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Minneapolis, and Charlotte, but it appears that Postmates deliveries for Apple Store app orders may be limited in scope for the time being, available only in the San Francisco Bay Area. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/05/postmatestracking.jpg" alt="postmatestracking" width="800" height="708" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-452141" /> <br/> <b>Update:</b> We received our Postmates Apple Store order within 35 minutes, much faster than the four-hour delivery estimate. According to our delivery driver, Apple's partnership with Postmates is brand new, with Postmates deliveries from the Apple Store app kicking off today.<img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/35070/f/648326/s/46b277fd/sc/28/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/a2.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://adchoice.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/ach.htm"><img src="http://adchoice.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/ach.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/a2t.img" border="0"/><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi2.feedsportal.com/r/228767722930/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46b277fd/sc/28/a2t2.img" border="0"/><div class="feedflare">
