  5. Apple to hold event to unveil new Macs on October 27th in Cupertino Following reports that new Macs are still on track for this month and as predicted, Recode now reports that Apple is planning to hold an event on October 27th to announce its latest lineup, meaning that we’re just over a week away from those long overdue updates… The report cites unnamed sources and claims that the event will take place “at or near” Apple’s Cupertino campus, not in San Francisco where other recent events have been held. Apple declined to comment on the report but some think Apple’s Town Hall might see its swan song for the Mac event. While we’re still waiting for Apple itself to send out invites, it’s all-but-confirmed at this point that a bunch of new Macs are coming this month. Apple will likely send out press invites at some point this week, perhaps as early as tomorrow. Last night’s report claimed that Apple plans to introduce a new MacBook Pro that drops MagSafe and USB-A in favor of all USB-C connectivity. Additionally, the report claimed that Apple will discontinue the 11-inch MacBook Air, which could mean a price cut is coming for the 12-inch MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Air. We discussed what might happen if the 11.6-inch left the lineup but some smart folks think it will stay in the lineup. The new MacBook Pro lineup is expected to feature a new, slimmer design, while the internal specifications will also be upgraded. The new models are also expected to feature an OLED touch bar in place of the traditional function row of keys. Recode’s report corroborates earlier speculation that Apple did in fact move its Q4 earnings call to make room for a Mac event. Apple was originally scheduled to hold its earnings call on October 27th, but later moved the call up to October 25th, leaving many to wonder if the change was due to the scheduling of a press event for Macs.

  6. WHAT TO EXPECT AT APPLE'S MAC EVENT IN OCTOBER Apple is said to be introducing an entirely refreshed lineup of Macs later this month. The event is said to be on October 27th, which we first speculated earlier this month. The new Macs are expected to be available to consumers this month, as well. As is often the case with Apple events, we already know a good portion of what the company has up its sleeve. Read on for a roundup of what to expect… MacBook Air The MacBook Air certainly isn’t expected to be the star of the show this year, but the lineup will receive some attention. It has been reported that Apple will discontinue the 11-inch model in order to direct its attention to the 12-inch MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Air. Some sources, however, have casted doubt as to the likelihood of this happening. While the overall design of the MacBook Air will remain the same, the machines are expected to be updated with USB-C support, according to a new Bloomberg report. As it seems now, however, the display quality will remain the same. The MacBook Air’s display quality is an aspect that many have called for an upgrade to, but seeing that it’s Apple’s entry-level laptop, the company isn’t looking to give it all of the top-of-the-line features. Should the 11-inch MacBook Air get discontinued, it’s possible that Apple will cut the price of the 13-inch model, as Ben speculated this morning. The 12-inch MacBook’s price point could also benefit from the death of the 11-inch Air, too. Nevertheless, the MacBook Air clearly won’t be the focal point of this year’s changes, but some upgrades will occur to bring it up to par. iMac Much like the MacBook Air, the iMac isn’t expected to receive a major overhaul this year, though Apple is planning some under-the-hood changes to keep it somewhat up to date. The biggest change will come to the graphics performance. Apple is said to be planning new options for GPUs from AMD, while other under-the-hood specs will likely also be bumped up. Design and scree specifications are expected to remain the same. The addition of USB-C is also possible. External 5K Display Apple officially discontinued its outdated and overpriced Thunderbolt Display earlier this year, paving the way for a newer and more capable model. It is expected that Apple will introduce a new 5K external display at its event this month that also includes a built-in GPU. We first reported on Apple’s plans for a 5K display with an integrated GPU earlier this year. The display is expected to feature a 5K resolution of 5120 x 2880, while the powerful internal GPU will be able to assist lower-powered Macs in pushing that many pixels. It’s unclear how Apple plans to price its new 5K display, but we should know more following the event next week. Don’t expect it to be cheap, though, given the $1000 price point of the Thunderbolt Display and the addition of a GPU. One thing to note, however, is that the release date for this display has changed several times already, so it’s possible that Apple has indeed pushed it back again and we won’t see it at this year’s event. MacBook Pro The star of the show this month is widely expected to be the MacBook Pro. Apple’s “Pro” laptop hasn’t seen a major overhaul in 4 years and is well overdue for one, and the company certainly seems to have a lot planned for this year’s refresh. First off, let’s talk design. The new MacBook Pro is expected to be much thinner and lighter than the current models, though it’s unlikely that they will feature a wedge design like the MacBook Air and 12-inch MacBook. Nevertheless, the overall footprint of the laptop is expected to smaller, while the trackpad will be slightly bigger. The design changes extend to the port options, as well. The new MacBook Pros will likely ditch all of its traditional ports in favor of USB-C connectivity. MagSafe is also getting the axe this year, as charging can be done via USB-C. The biggest change to the design, however, will be the addition of a new OLED touch display in replace of the standard function keys at the top of the keyboard. This display is expected to provide quick action buttons for common tasks that vary depending on which app is open. Apple is said to be working with third-party app developers to ensure that a variety of software is optimized for the new touch bar at launch, as well. Touch ID is also expected to come to the MacBook Pro this year, likely being located on the power button of the machine. While Auto Unlock allows Apple Watch users to unlock their Mac when their Apple Watch is in close proximity, Touch ID will allow for all users to unlock their machine without typing in the actual password. The MacBook Pro lineup will also get speed boosts under-the-hood. While specifics of the spec upgrades are unclear, Apple is expected to offer one of AMD’s Polaris GPUs and Intel’s Skylake processors. The design of the Polaris GPU is small enough to fit in the smaller footprint of the Pro, while also offering the best combination of power and battery usage. AirPods Another thing we should expect to see at next week’s event is the release of Apple’s truly wireless AirPods, or at least the announcement of an actual release date. At the iPhone 7 event last month, Apple teased that AirPods would be available in late October, but the company has not said anything since. If Apple sticks to its word, then we should expect an AirPods release sooner rather than later. Odds and Ends A refresh of Apple’s AirPort accessories isn’t out of the question for this year’s event. The AirPort Express is still stuck on 802.11n, while the AirPort Extreme and Apple’s Mac lineup have been updated to support the newer and faster 802.11ac. So it seems logical for the AirPort Express to finally receive that update. Colorware’s custom jet black accessories Additionally, it’s possible that Apple introduces new peripherals, such as a new Magic Keyboard with an OLED touch bar. While it’s unlikely, new colors of the peripherals would likely be met with fanfare, such as rose gold, gold, space grey, and jet black. This is speculative, though, and likely won’t be a big portion of Apple’s announcements. Mac Pro/Mac Mini (or what not to expect) The two machines that often feel most neglected by Apple could be headed for the same fate this year. There haven’t been any rumors concerning Apple’s entry-level Mac Mini or its Pro-level Mac Pro. The latter of the two was dramatically overhauled three years ago, but hasn’t seen an update since. The Mac Mini, on the other hand, hasn’t been updated in two years. While minor under-the-hood refreshes aren’t out of the question, it’s unlikely that Apple has anything major planned for the Mac Pro or Mac Mini. Wrap-up It’s clear that the MacBook Pro and external display will be the star of Apple’s October event this year, and rightfully so. Both are due for their respective upgrades and it sounds as if Apple has quite a bit planned for each. HAVE YOU ENTERED THE FORUM GIVE-A-WAY YET?

  7. Hands-on with TwelveSouth’s ‘New Mac’ scented candle I’ve long-admired the smell of new Apple hardware. I understand that not everyone gets it, but for those who do, it’s a distinct smell that can be instantly recognized. I first encountered this smell upon purchasing my first ever Apple product – a mid-2000’s Mac mini – and I’ve been hooked ever since. It’s not that I go around smelling Apple boxes, but the scent evokes fond memories of my first Mac experience. So when the Apple accessory makers over Twelve South introduced a new Mac-inspired candle, I was intrigued, as those of you who are reading this no doubt are as well. Does Twelve South’s New Mac candle really smell like a freshly opened piece of “Designed by Apple in California?” Twelve South states on the bottom of its candle that the scent is its own interpretation of what new Apple hardware smells like. Upon unboxing the candle, this much is quite obvious; its scent, like any scented candle worth its weight, proceeds it. The New Mac candle is a 100% hand-poured soy wax candle that contains a variety of scent notes in an effort to emulate the new Mac smell. The candle is contained within an opaque, black glass jar with a simple “New Mac” Twelve South sticker on the front. Opening the candle’s lid allows olfaction to completely take over as you’re immediately doused with a bouquet of mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin and sage. Mac-scent aside, it’s quite the pleasing smell on its own. The best way I can describe it is “clean” — it puts off a very clean-smelling scent. HANDS-ON VIDEO Twelve South calls its fragrance an interpretation, and after comparing this candle with my just-opened iPhone 7 box, I’d say that’s a fair description. The candle doesn’t smell exactly like new Apple hardware, but I find that it evokes enough redolence to live up to its namesake. Lighting the candle brought out even more of the aroma, but just keeping the lid off is enough to fill a small room or office. The New Mac candle has a burn time of 45-55 hours, although I’m guessing that many of the people interested in this product will be in it more so for the novelty. But even if you do plan on burning it, you can always buy another when it runs out of wax. Twelve South is selling these candles for a reasonable $24, which includes free shipping in the US. Within a day of the initial post all of the initial batch of candles sold out, but stock will be available again soon. What are your thoughts on the New Mac candle? Do you plan on picking one up?

  8. Apple files patent application for a better paper bag The legendary tech powerhouse's latest idea apparently is revamping the shopping bag. Enlarge Image Apple's patent application for a recycled paper bag. For Apple, dropping the headphone jack into the dustbin of history was just the start. It would seem that traditional paper bags have made the company's hit list too. According to a Tuesday report, Apple has filed a US patent application for a bag made from the pulp of trees. Now this isn't just ordinary paper pulp mind you. Apple specifically calls for the material of its ideal carryall to consist of 60 percent "post-consumer content." It's certainly a noble goal but not exactly a groundbreaking move. Still, the patent application is definitely more practical than other downright odd filings, of which Sony's wireless wig takes the cake. Of course, Apple is an extremely large corporation and a massive retail operation in its own right. It regularly submits patent paperwork for mundane topics such as fabric with laser-etched words, and afive-axis robotic arm.

  9. How to Create a Bootable Installer of macOS Sierra Before we begin the process of creating the bootable installer, you have a bit of housekeeping to perform. Creating the bootable installer requires that the bootable media (a flash drive or external drive) be formatted, resulting in the erasure of any data the target volume may contain. In addition, the commands to create the bootable installer require the use of Terminal, where a wrongly entered command can cause unexpected issues. In order to avoid any permanent problems, I highly recommend that you perform a backup of both your Mac and the media (USB flash drive or external drive) that you will be using. I cannot overstate the importance of performing these two tasks before you begin the installation process. What You Need A copy of the macOS Sierra installer, available from the Mac App Store. It sometimes takes Apple a little bit of time before the Mac App Store is updated with new releases such as macOS Sierra. If you don't see the operating system available in the store on day one, try perfroming a search for macOS Sierra in the store. The macOS Sierra installer will start up automatically once the download is completed. Do not continue with the installation as prompted by the installer; instead quit the installer. If you allowed the installer to run, you'll need to re-download it, Once it's downloaded, the installer can be found in the/Applications folder, with the name: Install macOS Sierra Public Beta. (This name will be updated as new versions are made available.) A 16 GB or larger USB flash drive. My recommendation is for a USB 3 version of the flash drive, to make the process of reading and writing data on the flash drive faster but a USB 2 will do just as well but will be a bit slower. These instructions will also work for an external drive, however for this guide, I'm going to assume that you're using a USB flash drive. If you're using an external drive, you should be able to adapt the instructions for your needs, where appropriate. A Mac that meets the macOS Sierra minimum requirements. If you have everything, then let's get started. Use Terminal to Create a Bootable macOS Sierra Installer With a copy of the macOS Sierra installer downloaded from the Mac App Store, and a USB flash drive in hand, you're ready to begin the process of creating a bootable macOS Sierra installer. The process we're going to use will completely erase the contents of the USB flash drive, so make sure you have the data on the flash drive backed up, or that you don't care about the loss of any data it may contain. The createinstallmedia Command The key to creating the bootable installer is the use of the createinstallmedia command that is tucked away inside the macOS Sierra installer you downloaded from the Mac App Store. This command takes care of all the heavy lifting for you; it will erase and format the flash drive, then copy the macOS Sierra disk image that's stored within the installer to the flash drive. Finally, it will perform a bit of housekeeping magic, and mark the flash drive as bootable media. The key to using the createinstallmedia command is the Terminal app. By using Terminal, we can invoke this command, sit back and take a short break, and then be presented with a bootable installer that we can use over and over again to install macOS Sierra on as many Macs as we wish. Create the macOS Sierra Bootable Installer Make sure the macOS Sierra installer file you downloaded from the Mac App Store is present in the /Applications folder on your Mac. If it's not there, you can jump back to page 1 of this guide to learn how to re-download the installer. Prepare the USB Flash Drive Connect the USB flash drive to your Mac. If the flash drive isn't already formatted for use with your Mac, you can use Disk Utility to format the flash drive. The flash drive needs to have a unique name for use in the createinstallmedia command we'll be using in a moment. You can use any name you wish, but I’m going to make the following suggestions: Don’t use any unusual characters; keep the name basic, just simple alphanumeric characters. Don’t use any spaces in the name. I highly recommend using the following name: macOSSierraInstall That's the name I used, and it's the name in the command line example, below. By using the same name, you can simply copy/paste the commands into Terminal, without having to make any modifications. Create the Install Media With the flash drive connected to your Mac, launch Terminal, located in /Applications/Utilities. Warning: The following command will erase the contents of the flash drive. Make sure you have a backup of the drive, if needed, before continuing. In the Terminal window that opens, enter the following command. The command is a single line of text, though it may appear as multiple lines in your browser. If you type the command into Terminal, remember the command is case sensitive. If you used a name for the flash drive other than macOSSierraInstall, you'll need to adjust the text in the command line to reflect the different name. The best way to enter the command is to triple-click the line below to select the entire command, copy (command + c) the text to your clipboard, and then paste (command + v) the text into Terminal, next to the command prompt. Once you've entered the command into Terminal, press enter or return on your keyboard. You'll be asked for an administrator password. Enter the password, and press enter or return. Terminal will begin to execute the command, and provide you with status updates as the process unfolds. Most of the time is spent writing the installer image to the flash drive; the time it takes is dependent on how fast the flash drive and interface is. Expect anywhere from a short wait, to enough time for coffee and a snack. Once Terminal completes the task, it will display a line saying Done, and the normal Terminal command prompt will reappear. You can now quit Terminal. The bootable USB flash drive for installing macOS Sierra has been created. Be sure to properly eject the drive if you plan to use it on a different Mac. Or, you can keep it connected to your Mac to start a clean install of macOS Sierra. The bootable installer contains a number of utilities, including Disk Utility and Terminal, that you can use for troubleshooting your Mac if you ever have startup problems.

  12. INTRODUCTION TO APPLE TEC PART OF FORUM Hi Guys n Girls, Welcome to this new section of our forum, Yes we know it's not quite Kodi related but I can assure you that this will work out to be of interest to those members who own or are interested in Apple Technology. I myself am a certified Apple Tech, working mostly from home developing some Applications that belong in OSX along with testing Hardware and Software for Apple. OK So this section is going to cover a lot of interesting things and articles relating to the good and bad about Apple. I can offer support for most Apple Products so if you have a problem or a question please start your own topic in this section of the forum and I will gladly help you all out to the best of my abilities, I also want our members to also join in the topics on here hence if you also know an answer to a problem someone has posted then please join in and help along as this is your forum and the more members that participate the better our forum grows. I will also be posting relevant news articles in this part of the forum to keep you all up to date in the world of Apple. The only thing I MUST STRESS is please do not ask me to confirm on any leaks that may be out there on the web. Yes if there is a leak out there already on the web then I will no doubt post it in here but I will not confirm if it is true or not There is only one topic I am not able to help with and that is JAIL BREAKING as basically I don't or never had the need to do it as I have access to everything i need via work but by all means if members want to post topics about Jail Breaking then please do so and help other members out as well as I may also learn a thing or 2. So basically anything to do with Apple please post your questions by starting a new thread in this section of our forum and hopefully the results will also help out other members that may have the same problems. One more thing (gosh I am sounding like Tim Cook lol) Please do not ask me to help you via PM (private Massage) as this will not be answered, this is only because no matter how small you may think your problem or comment will be remember by posting in open forums you may also be helping other members that may have the same problem hence why I do not answer problems by PM. Saying that knowing that this is an Apple part of our forum there may be times when no matter what we do or say we can not get your problem solved, if this does occur then knowing the subject is on Apple Products I will presume that you will have FaceTime and Apple Messenger. If this happens and you want one to one help then I will gladly at a time to suite both of us try and solve your problem out over one of these 2 ways of communication. Then obviously details will need to be swapped in private messenger to arrange this. OK I look forward to helping you all out and reading your comments on relevant Apple stories.
