V Sanebox
* Do you get tons of email? Is your inbox out of control? Then SaneBox is for you.
* It moves unimportant emails out of the Inbox into a separate folder and summarizes them in a digest.
* You only have important emails in your Inbox, and can process everything else in bulk.
* It works everywhere - on any email provider, client or device (you'll simply see that folder everywhere you check your email).
V How does it know what's important?
* It analyzes your past behavior (which emails you open, which you respond to, how quickly, how often, etc) and determines importance of incoming emails without ever looking at the content (only the headers).
* They add new features, like the 'SaneNotSpam' folder. You know the messages that get flagged as spam, but aren’t. They’ll show up in here not buried in your SPAM folder so you can move them back.
V SaneBox has lots of other features:
* 1 click unsubscriber
* Snoozing non-urgent emails, 1-day, 1-week, or custom.
* Moving attachments to Dropbox etc.
* Also the Sanebox Team has released a Kindle book, "How to Outsmart Your Inbox" for $0.99 on the Kindle Store. And if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber you can read it for free.
* Try it for free trial and to get a $10 credit on your Sanebox order. Head to:
V News
V Pre-ordering the iPhone. Same old experience.
* Share my experiences pre-ordering the iPhone 6 Plus
* Why I opted, right or wrong, for the iPhone 6 Plus
V Despite all the bumps and roadblock that didn’t stop Apple from making record breaking pre-orders
* Apple told Re/code it had record preorders overnight on the first day.
* AT&T claimed demand is higher for them then on the past two Iphone launches.
* After 24 hours Apple officially announced they had taken 4 million pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
V That could mean by the end of launch weekend Apple will have sold a record 10 million iPhone’s according to analyst Maynard Um. That would be more than double iPhone 5 opening weekend sales.
* This only works if Apple has the inventory on hand though.
* Estimates for the September quarter are 35-37 million units
* December quarter predictions (first full quarter) are between 59 and 62 million
* More importantly for Apple the average selling price per phone should increase due to the higher priced iPhone 6 plus models.
* Lost revenue from iPad Mini sales will likely be offset by the higher prices/margins on the iPhone models
V Foxconn is reportedly having issues meeting pre-order demand
* They have 100 dedicated assembly lines making 140,000 iPhones 6 Pluses and 400,000 iPhone 6’s a day
* 5.5-inch display parts are in short supply because 50-60 percent are being rejected by Apple.
V At this point if you want one you’ll be waiting in line on launch day
* Online ship times for iPhone 6 Plus have shipped into 3-4 weeks and iPhone 6 models are shipping in 7-10 days.
* It’s not clear how much availability will be in stores and if Apple Stores, Partner Stores, or Carrier Stores will be you best bet.
V New iPhones have started shipping, but carriers are supposed to hold shipments until Friday.
V Some luckily folks in China and Vietnam got their early
* The one in China at least must have been stolen from a factory because Apple doesn’t have all the regulatory approvals they need yet and word is that it might not come out in China until 2015
* Unboxings show huge size of the iPhone 6 plus and the very minimalistic packaging
* iPhone 6 Plus sticks almost half way out of a shirt pocket
V New video codec support in iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
* Supports new H.265 video encoding and decoding
* Known as High Efficiency Video Coding
* Same quality at half the bit rate.
* That means iPhone 6’s will allow FaceTime calls over cellular at half the data consumption
* Speculation is the new A8 processor includes a dedicated module for encoding and decoding the new codec
V A8 processor speculation
* Based on some of Apple marketings performance claims, AnandTech, believes the A8 pack a 6-core PowerVR Series6XT GX6650 GPU
* It’s the only chip that could support the speed claims and carries ARM's Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression which is referenced as being available in developer documentation
* They also speculate the A8 CPU is clocked at 1.4GHz, only 100MHz higher than the 1.3GHz A7
* It’s also believed that Apple held firm to the just 1GB of RAM in both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Most believe due to wanting to keep battery life as high as possible.
V iWork and iLife pre-installed
* On 64GB and 128GB models
* iMovie, GarageBand, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and iTunes U.
* 16GB models will have access, but you’ll need to download from the App Store manually.
* NFC chip is for Apple Pay only, at least for now. Cult of Mac confirmed with Apple
V Both iPhone’s get extra keys on the keyboard.
* arrow keys for moving cursor. If you engage caps lock the arrow keys will expand and shrink text selections
V iPhone 6 in more countries soon
* Apple said they want to reach 115 countries by the end of the year.
* Looks like Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Taiwan, Turkey, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland will see the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on September 26th.
* And they will arrive in the United Arab Emirates a day later on the 27th.
* The 26th is also the day that US regional carriers will start selling the new iPhones.
* India was originally slated to get the iPhone on September 26th too, but the date in that country slipped to October and now has reportedly been pushed back to mid-November.
* It’s a bummer both China and India are delayed because those are two of Apple’s largest and fastest growing markets
V iOS 8 is out. Cools stuff and warnings
V Do not upgrade to iCloud Drive if not all your devices are running iOS 8 and you are running OS X Yosemite
* iCloud Drive is a one way street. Once you move your documents there you are doing things the new way, with documents accessible in the Finder in OS X Yosemite.
* That means things will no longer be available to apps that do it the "old" Documents in the Cloud way.
V Are you ready to upgrade?
* Check the specs. It will run on an iPhone 4S, but early reviews say it can be a pretty slow experience. I would imagine the same for iPad 2.
V Backup. Use iCloud or connect to iTunes and get a fresh backup.
* Also transfer any purchased content into iTunes too. Do this prior to backing up.
* If you try an over the air update, but don’t have enough space try upgrading via iTunes.
V What to check out. New features
* Realtime exposure in Camara app. Tap to focus and slide the exposure control
V Third party keyboards
* Swype, Swiftkey, Flesky
* With the app installed they are enabled in General > Keyboard > Add Keyboard
* Tap the "globe" icon to switch between keyboards
V QuickType
* Will suggest the next word you might want to type.
* Tap to accept
* Swipe down to hide it. Up to bring it back
V Voice Messaging
* Tap the mic icon to start recording, swipe up to send. Tap X to cancel.
* You can also raise to voice message or reply
* Quick reply to message notifications by sliding down on the badge to get an input box.
* Time Lapse Photos
V "Hey Siri"
* Only works when connected to power
V Add Notification Center widgets
* Some apps can now add to your Today view in Notification Center
* In the Notification Center Today view scroll to the bottom and tap 'Edit'
* Tap the "+" next to a widget to add it to the view.
* Tap and drag on the order "handle" to reorder.
* Tap Done.
V Settings > General > Usage > Battery Usage.
* See battery hogging apps
V Tap Edit in the Messages app to get the 'Read All' option and mark all as read.
* In Settings > Messages you can auto-delete after 30 days or 1 year.
V Safari
* Swipe down in the bookmark bar area under the URL bar to access 'Add to favorites' and ' Request Desktop Site' options
V Add RSS feeds to Shared links.
* Open the website in Safari, tap on the share icon, tap on shared links, tap 'Subscriptions' and tap 'Add Current Site'.
* Can use iSight Camera to enter credit card details
* Raise to talk for Siri has been removed. Boo.
V HealthKit supporting app got pulled due to a bug.
* no word on what it is or when the apps might return
V Apple TV was also updated
* Flatter UI
* New Beats music app
* Support for Family Sharing
V Apple also pushed out OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 Update
* Improves the reliability of VPN connections that use USB smart cards for authentication
* Improves the reliability of accessing files located on an SMB server
* Includes Safari 7.0.6 (already released)
V New iCloud pricing
* 5GB for free, 20GB for $0.99 a month, 200GB for $3.99 a month, 500GB for $9.99 a month, and 1TB for $19.99 a month.
* If you’re already paying for a plan you should get a prorated refund. Apple sent out emails last week notifying customers.
* Some have complained that the plans still aren’t competitive with other cloud storage services. For example Dropbox offers 1TB for $9.99, half of what Apple is now charging.
* The convenience and deep integration with iOS and Mac will likely make the extra money spent worth it for many consumers
V In wake of 'nudegate' Apple beefs up iCloud security
V Apple now by default sends users an email when someone has logged into their iCloud account through a traditional Web browser.
* If you log in and out of a lot I would imagine the emails may get annoying.
V They also have now enable 2-factor authentication in iCloud.
* You will be asked to verify on login.
* There is an option to remember the verification per browser.
* The remember option is also confirmed at logout of
V In addition starting on October 1st if you use 2-factor authentication then 3rd party apps that use iCloud services will be require to use an app-specific password.
* These can be generated by logging into your Apple ID account page, clicking on 'Password and Security' and clicking on 'Generate an App-Specific Password' in the Generate an app-specific password section.
* Clicking 'View History' in that same section will show previously generated app-specific password and give you the option to 'Revoke' them
* You can have up to 25 app-specific passwords
* I assume you can use the same app-specific password for more than one app, but that somewhat ruins the 'revoke' ability
* The attackers went in through a backend API which didn’t have two-factor checking and I doubt it would. The app-specific passwords might deal with that?
V Privacy
* Apple put up a whole new page on it’s site detailing it’s commitment to security and data privacy.
* There’s a letter from Tim Cook which reiterates comments he’s made in the past that Apple makes money from products and not from customer’s data.
* And if you’re running iOS 8 and using a passcode it now appears the majority of your data is now encrypted and Apple cannot access the data even if issued a warrant to do so by law enforcement
* Photos, messages (including attachments), email, contacts, call history, iTunes content, notes, and reminders are now all protected.
V Learning more about Apple Watch
V Gold will be expensive, we just don’t know how expensive.
* TechCrunch estimates around $1200
* One expert said the casing along could cost $600 to produce in gold.
* Not clear if it will be gold plated or solid gold alloy
V Gruber thinks it’s solid and could sell for as much as $4,999 (what!?)
* He also thinks the bare minimum would be $1,999, but doubts it’d be that cheap.
* He puts pricing on the stainless steel/ sapphire Apple Watch version at $999
V The "Sport" edition is the one that starts at $349.00
* Ion-X glass and polymer band.
* Apple Watch has been in development for over three years
* It can store and play music, but you’ll need a bluetooth headset.
V Apple set the time on their marketing images one minute earlier than most other watch makers
* Cult of Mac noted the difference via a post by Quartz
* The time is typically set to 10:10 (though the seconds vary by manufacturer)
* A tradition set by the Hamilton Watch Company in 1926, though not ALL watch makers follow it.
* It used for symmetry and because it doesn’t obscure the maker’s logo below the 12
V U2 deal and fallout
* Sources told the New York Times that the deal for Apple to giveaway the latest U2 album cost over $100 million
* Not everyone was happy with getting a free U2 album though.
* After the first day about 1 percent of iTunes customers had downloaded the album from their iTunes accounts "purchased" section.
* Apple then pushed the track to devices and that’s when things got ugly.
* Twitter exploded with nerd rage
* I get that some folks don’t like U2 and down’t want the album
* I also get it used some bandwidth and storage on people’s devices
* I even get how some people, unaware of the promotion, may have been worried their accounts had somehow been hacked.
* That said the reaction was a bit over the top in my opinion and Apple’s counter reaction was even more odd.
V They set up a dedicated page so you can remove, no expunge, the offensive album from your iTunes library
* Click Remove Album to confirm you’d like to remove the album from your account.
* Sign in with the Apple ID and password you use to buy from the iTunes Store.
* You’ll see a confirmation message that the album has been removed from your account.
* If you downloaded the songs to iTunes on your Mac or PC or to the Music app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you’ll need to delete them manually.
* There is no going back though. Once gone you can’t change your mind later and get it back.
* Or you could just delete the album from your iTunes library, hide it in your purchase history and move on with your life.
V What’s next for Apple
V Rumors of a 12-inch notebook in a "ultra-slim" forma factor
* Retina display
* Buttonless trackpad
* Fanless design
* Intel Broadwell Core M chip
* Possibly in iPhone colors, Space Grey and Gold
* Sounds like a 12-inch Macbook Air or maybe a strange variation of the rumored iPad Pro?
* Ready around mid-2015
V Next Apple Watch
* Not even out until early next year, but we are already getting reports of Apple’s plans for the Apple Watch 2
* The focus is said to be on more health features and more advanced sensors
V 5K iMac
* Why do 4K when you can go straight to 5?
* from Taiwan-based display researchers WitsView
* Dell just announced a 27-inch 5120×2880 5K display
V OS X Yosemite has hinted at pixel-doubled Retina resolution scaling options for a larger desktop-sized Mac.
* 6400 x 3600 (200×1800 HiDPI), 5760×3240 (2880×1620 HiDPI) 4096×2304 (2048×1152 HiDPI) resolutions
* Apple also recently added new resolution scaling options and improved support for 4K displays.
V Apple has stuff we don’t know about yet
* In a TV interview on Charlie Rose Tim Cook said there were Apple products in development that have not even been rumored about yet. Please, please say teleporters. 😉
V Apple’s next big event is reportedly coming in mid-to-late October
* Very likely iPad updates with improved processors and Touch ID
* Ship date for OS X Yosemite
* Possibly Macbook Pro or Air updates, but as noted earlier the Air might come in 2015
* 4K Retina Thunderbolt Display?
* Apple TV updates? (unlikely)
V Feedback, commentary, opinions
V Your thoughts on Apple the Apple Event
V Play question from James
* I don’t think Apple will drop the 4.7-inch, but it likely could become the new "small" iPhone replacing the 4-inch 5c and 5s models.
V Play Apple Watch comments from Rick
* I think I too am a little disappointed that the Apple Watch doesn’t seem to have as much autonomy as I would have liked
* GPS would be really hard to build in and maintain any kind of battery life. I like the idea of antennas in the band, but that’s not the technical challenge
* Wish we knew more about the S1 processor. I imagine it has some low energy sensor tracking capabilities like the M7 and M8 chips.
* I assume it can track steps and heart rate in the watch.
V Play Apple Watch question from Alan
* The original iPhone was announced in January of 2007 and went on sale at the end of June 2007.
* The likely reason is that the device needs to go through FCC and other regulatory approvals and that information is public
* Also they will start to ramp up production trials, so leaks are much more likely
* A bonus is that they also effectively halted holiday sales of their competitors smartwatch products. Anyone who was tired of waiting for Apple and considering a Samsung Gear or Moto 360, may now hold off on that purchase and wait for an Apple Watch.
V Play Apple Watch question from Todd
* I’m not sure why at least the latest iPod Touch wouldn’t be supported. We can only speculate.
* Bluetooth would be the connection to the Apple Watch and the iPod Touch has Bluetooth 4.0
* Maybe it’s that the iPod Touch doesn’t have GPS? Or possibly there is some connection with the M7 and M8 motion co-processors, but those both seem like they would be more fitness tracking related. But since that is a big part of the watches functionality it may be a call Apple made based on the user experience they want to deliver with the Watch.
* It is still really early though and I think we may see a number of changes for the Apple Watch when it finally ships.
V Play comments from John about carrier plans
* The way I understand it this mostly affects people who are on the Family Share data plans that are over 10GB of shared data
* A discount was applied per line on Family Share data plans, but only for phones on-contract. So the $40/per device cost was $25 (for under 10GB of shared data) or $15 (10GB or more) per month per device. So at the higher data plans that translates to a $25 per line savings.
* At&T is no longer offering discounted data access rates on on-contract phones. That means to get a $15 or $25 data access rate plan you need to buy via AT&T Next, buy at full price, or bring your own phone.
V Not all iPhones seem to have 20 LTE Bands
* Colin emailed me with a concern over how to get a carrier unlocked iPhone that will work in both the US and China.
* Phil Schiller made a big deal about how the iPhone 6 models now support 20 LTE bands more than ever before.
* But look at the iPhone 6 specs page, as Colin pointed out, and it seems not all iPhones are equal.
V There appears to actually be two models (looks like three actually)
* The A1549 / A1522 (GSM & CDMA) variants seem to support identical bands, although they only list CDMA bands next to the CDMA variant. Since it has the same model number as the GSM variant I’m assuming they are the same device.
* Model A1586 / A1524 Seems to have the same CDMA, GSM, and LTE bands as the A1549/ A1522 models but also add 3 additional TD-SCDMA (TD-SCDMA 1900 (F), 2000 (A)) and 4 TD-LTE (Bands 38, 39, 40, 41) bands
* Looking at just the LTE bands that means the A1549/ A1522 models have just 16 LTE bands, while only the A1586 / A1524 variant has the full 20.
* Incidentally, the two model numbers for each phone are the iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus variations.
V Digging into Apple LTE page at
* Shows that the 20 LTE Band model is only available on C Spire, Sprint, and US Cellular in the US.
* Sprint doesn’t seem to offer the option to buy the iPhone 6 models carrier unlocked or off contract.
* Apple sells a T-Mobile (GSM) version of the iPhone without a contract, but you’d still have to go through T-Mobile to have it factory unlocked.
* There are services online that will unlock iPhones, on contract or not, for around $100. One is even run by the famous jailbreak hacker who goes by @chronic
V What happened to the Camera Roll?
* After upgrading to iOS 8 and using the Camera app you may notice that the Camera Roll and Photo Stream are gone.
* Don’t Panic
* All your stuff is still there Apple just re-jiggered some things
* Basically now all images live in the Photos app, not in the Camera app for some and Photos for others.
V Now you have "Recently Added" under Albums
* This is effectively your Photo Stream and "Camera Roll" in a way, rolled into one.
* There are also new default "Albums" to sort things. Recently Added, Recently Deleted (stored for 30 days), Videos, Slo-mo, Bursts, Faces, and your custom Albums
* Photos are also generally stored in the "Photos" section which are organized by Moments, Collections, Years, Location
V The Search now groups items too.
* Search by a month, say August, and all photos in your Photos from August appear regardless of year. Add the year if want from a specific year
* Search by location or "nearby"
V iCloud Library (Beta)
* Apparently not everyone is seeing this option
* Settings >Photos & Camera > iCloud Photo Library (Beta)
* Enabling it will put ALL your photos into your iCloud, not just the past 1,000 or 30 Days worth like with PhotoStream
V It will also warn you that any photos sync’d with the device via iTunes will be removed, so make sure you’re backed up before you enable it.
* Since those images came from a Mac via iTunes they should already be backed up.
* The trouble is that until the new Photos app comes out next year, I’m not clear with how or if you can get photos from your Mac to the iCloud Photo Library, so be warned.
V This feels very iTunes Match like to me, but for photos.
* Photos will be uploaded and stored in the cloud and by default device-optimized versions are stored for browsing, etc.
* You can change this setting and opt to download and keep the originals, but that will eat up a lot of storage
* Good news is that edits made on device optimized versions will be sync’d up and made on the full sized copies stored in iCloud
* Edits to items in the iCloud Photo Library are also sync’d
* Unlike Photostream iCloud Photo Library will count against your iCloud storage, so if you opt for this feature you’ll probably need more than the free 5GB of storage Apple provides.
* Personally I’m waiting to use iCloud Photo Library until it’s integrated with the Mac too.
V iPhoto is gone in iOS 8
* Be aware that in iOS 8 iPhoto is dead. Apple said they were killing it and they did
* When you launch iPhoto on iOS 8 it will give you the option to migrate the data to the Photos app.
* Images from Photo Books, Web Journals and Slideshows will get migrated and converted to albums, but their formatting, text, etc. is all lost.
* Image adjustments made in iPhoto are retained.
* Tags and captions from iPhoto are not displayed in Photos, but you can use them as search terms and they will show up respectively as Keywords and Titles in Photos search results.
V How will Apple Pay work?
* We have some details now on how Apple Pay will work and why it should be better and more secure than your credit card or even vs. other "tap to pay" systems
* Near Field Communication technology
* Only works in close proximity. Generally 10cm or less which limits the opportunity for intercepting data during transmission
* NFC isn’t encrypted by default but, like other technology, transmissions can and likely will be encrypted with Apple Pay
V Touch ID
* By themselves NFC chips are always in a "readable" state. Get close enough to a reader and they will happily wake up and send their data.
* Apple Pay has a couple tricks to stop a "drive by" NFC scan and Touch ID is one.
* After a scan you need to authenticate with your finger print. This is like signing today.
* Also, after your transaction is complete you get a notification of the purchase
* Some current tap to pay system have a limit of $25-50 because no signature is required. Apple Pay will likely get past these limits because of TouchID
V Apple Watch
* But wait, I can use Apple Pay with Apple Watch and that has no Touch ID
* There Apple is using a passcode and skin contact.
* Before you can pay with Apple Watch you have to enable Apple Pay with a passcode.
* That authorization stays active until you remove the watch. After that you need to re-auth with the passcode the next time you put the watch on.
* Also after initializing a payment you’ll need to press the Apple Watch button twice to confirm the transaction. Again this avoids "drive by" charges.
V In-App Purchases
* Apple pay can be used for orders in Apps that want to support it.
* No filling out of address information, by default ti will use what’s in file with your Apple ID. I assume there will be a way to override that during checkout if you want.
V Securing cards on the iPhone
* First time you set up Apple Pay it will ask if you want to use the card that’s on file with your iTunes account for Apple Pay.
* That is stored in Passbook.
* You can also "capture" other cards into Passbook.
* When you tap to pay the default card is displayed, but you can also select any other card.
* When adding a card Apple Pay check with the card issuing back to confirm the card is owned by you. We don’t have exact details yet on how Apple will confirm identity. Other use a authorization payment for a small amount that you enter into the app.
* Once verified Apple pay doesn’t store the card number or security code. It generates a unique device account number and stores that encrypted in the Secure Element, a dedicated chip for Apple Pay.
V When using Apple Pay the device account number along with a one-time payment number and transaction-specific security code are used to make the sale
* This is the "tokenization" process you may have heard about
* That "token" is what’s sent to the payment processor and used to match back you your account on the other end to make the purchase.
* Because they are one-time use even if the token is intercepted it severely limits any fraud that could be done.
V Find My iPhone lock
* If you lose your iPhone, you can disable Apple Pay from Find My iPhone
* Since you need communications access to use Apple Pay simply putting the iPhone into airplane mode probably won’t work. Also they’ll need you fingerprint too and we already know Touch ID only works with living tissue, so no bringing up severed digits as a hack around. (yes, pun intended).
V How Apple makes money
* The Financial Times claims Apple will keep a 0.0015% cut of every purchase made with Apple Pay.
* So basically $0.15 for every $100 spent using Apple Pay.
V Battery, fan, or display issues? Reset your SMC.
* A few shows back we discussed the early-2011 Macbook Pro discreet GPU failure issue.
* This is a moderately serious flaw in the dedicated GPU on those models that Apple has yet to acknowledge and has not issues an extended warranty replacement for.
* Affected units have glitchy or non-functioning displays and listener Scott had a model that had those sorts of symptoms.
* He too the unit to an Apple Authorized repair center to get diagnosed and turned out, while he had similar symptoms, the issue just the System Management Controller (SMC) needing to be reset.
* We’ve covered this "fix" before, but I think it’s worth revisiting.
* An SMC reset can address a host of Mac issues including fans running out of control, lights and backlights behaving oddly, power and battery issues, wake from sleep trouble, random shutdowns, slow system performance, beach balls and more.
V Apple does recommend the "typical" troubleshooting steps be done before resorting to an SMC reset.
* Reboot
* Run Disk Utility and repair permissions
* How you reset the SMC depends on the model Mac you have and if you have a portable, if you can remove the battery. You can check in this Apple support article:
V For MacBooks without a removable battery:
* Shut down the computer.
* Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.
* On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time.
* Release all the keys and the power button at the same time.
* Press the power button to turn on the computer.
* Note: The LED on the MagSafe power adapter may change states or temporarily turn off when you reset the SMC.
V For Mac Pro, Intel-based iMac, Intel-based Mac mini, or Intel-based Xserve
* Shut down the computer.
* Unplug the computer's power cord.
* Wait fifteen seconds.
* Attach the computer's power cord.
* Wait five seconds, then press the power button to turn on the computer.
