Larry David sends up App Store review process in unaired WWDC14 video


Apple tapped actor, comedian and writer Larry David for what appears to be a promotional video created for a past Worldwide Developers Conference, though the short was never used.

Shared by Sam Henri-Ghoul in a tweet on Monday, the clip was reportedly set to air as Apple’s introduction to WWDC in 2014. The company typically pre-tapes a brief welcome video that is shown to conference participants, with the tradition morphing into a complete keynote experience as the conference transitioned online during the coronavirus pandemic.

While the entire video is not available, Henri-Ghoul posted a clip from the short film in which David plays the role of an “App Approval” specialist. His desk holds an iMac, a statue of the Empire State Building, and what looks to be green and red stamps for approving or denying apps.

David is seen talking to the developer of “Upset Pigeons,” chastising them for creating a “flagrant ripoff” of what is almost certainly “Angry Birds.” The comedian goes on a short rant about upset avians in apps.

Screenshots posted alongside the video reveal David starred in the short alongside JB Smoove, who appeared on David’s hit show “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel.

Henri-Ghoul previously collected classic Apple advertisements, unseen videos and other miscellany in an online repository called the Unofficial Apple Archive. The website was shut down last year after Apple filed a series of DMCA takedown notices.

Apple has come under fire for its App Store practices in the intervening years since David’s intro film was shot. Among antitrust complaints and grousing from developers over App Store commissions, the company’s online app storefront is under scrutiny for issues related to the review process. Of note, developer Kosta Eleftheriou has over the past months identified a number of scam apps that slipped past App Store reviewers.

No hardware debuts during WWDC 2021 keynote, says leaker


Apple may not use its WWDC 2021 keynote to make any hardware announcements, with a prominent leaker hinting that there won’t be any physical product launches.

While WWDC is known to be a software-centric event, concerned primarily with Apple’s operating systems and software changes, rumors always circulate about new hardware being revealed during the event. In the opinion of one well-known leaker, it seems that WWDC 2021 will be a software-only year.

Responding to a query on Twitter on whether there will be any hardware products shown at WWDC 2021 on Monday, leaker “@L0vetodream” responded in Chinese with the translated phrase “I feel no.”

While the Twitter account has amassed a following for high-accuracy leaks for Apple products, there is always a chance that the account is incorrect and Apple does show hardware. In a later tweet, they said “I was just talking about playing, I’m not reliable at all,” which immediately casts doubt on the initial “I feel no” tweet.

Apple has used the WWDC event to highlight hardware, but certainly not every event. On three occasions, for the “coke can” Mac Pro, the iMac Pro, and the 2019 Mac Pro, Apple teased the hardware, and shipped a profoundly limited quantity of the devices before the end of the year.

Rumors claimed that Apple could launch a 16-inch MacBook Pro refresh during the event, as well as the possibility of pushing forward with its Apple Silicon transition with a new chip. However, this is also during a time when the world is dealing with a chip shortage, which could cause problems for the production of new hardware.

Follow all the details of WWDC 2021 with the comprehensive AppleInsider coverage of the whole week-long event from June 7 through June 11, including details of all the new launches and updates.

Apple set to release long-awaited iOS update to restrict tracking by advertisers


Apple is about to give millions of iPhone users a choice: Allow Facebook and other apps running on Apple’s iOS platform to track your activity on your phone and online, or stop tracking altogether.

What will you choose?

Among the new features in Apple’s new iPhone software, iOS 14.5, is a major privacy update called App Tracking Transparency, which requires apps to request permission before gathering user or device data. Specifically, the update changes the Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA), a unique, random number assigned to each iPhone that allows advertisers and developers to track user behavior, including app usage and web browsing behavior. The IDFA is often used to personalize advertisements.

Apple is also releasing software updates for its other devices, including the iPad, Apple Watch, Mac computers and Apple TV. Apple is hosting an event on Tuesday where the company will announce product updates, and the software is expected to be available this week.

A spokesperson for Apple said the new privacy features were developed to “provide transparency and give users a choice if their data is tracked.” Apple requires all developers to adhere to the new policies, but will not require software makers to make the update immediately. 

Why Facebook objects

Facebook, Google and other big tech firms are unhappy with the changes.

In December, Facebook placed a full-page ad in the New York Times that claimed the user-tracking changes in iOS 14.5 would adversely affect small businesses. “[T]he average small business advertiser stands to see a cut of over 60% in their sales for every dollar they spend,” the Facebook ad stated.

A spokesman for Facebook was unable to verify the claim of a 60% loss to small business, but shared a Facebook blog post and video that asserts the Apple update will force developers to enable in-app purchases to make up for lost revenue. 

“It will force businesses to turn to subscriptions and other in-app payments for revenue, meaning Apple will profit and many free services will have to start charging or exit the market,” the blog post said. Facebook has previously warned advertisers that its ad network could become “ineffective” on Apple’s products.

Google does not plan to make similar changes to its Android operating system. The mobile OS has a similar device identification advertising feature called GPS ADID that allows advertisers on Android to personalize ads. The current version of Android also asks for one-time user permissions that enables app access to a phone’s location, camera and microphone.

A spokesperson for the company, which is owned by Alphabet, told CBS News, “We’re always looking for ways to work with developers to raise the bar on privacy while enabling a healthy, ad-supported app ecosystem.”

A boon for privacy

The Google Chrome web browser will start limiting or removing data shared with third-party tracking cookies by early 2022, according to a company spokesperson. Instead of tracking individuals, Google plans to allow targeted ads to groups of users with similar interests, a move that it says is less invasive but which privacy advocates have criticized.

Apple’s update is “the most significant improvement in digital privacy in the history of the internet. And it will kneecap Facebook,” Jason Kint, a privacy advocate and CEO of the advertising trade association Digital Content Next, said in a tweet.

AdWeek, a trade publication for the advertising industry, recently surveyed a number of small business advertisers and reported that “nobody really knows” what to expect from the iOS changes. 

Other experts are more positive. Apple’s policy is fair for both advertisers and consumers, said tech analyst Rene Ritchie. “It’s good for consumers. It’s not bad for advertisers. If we think of it in a consumer-centric way, [advertisers] have just had unfettered access to our data forever and it’s built up almost an entitlement to ownership of who we are and what we do online,” he told CBS News.

Ritchie said consumers have the right to keep private or to share mobile phone and browsing data. “This is our data. And it’s so valuable to [advertisers] that they’re willing to spend all this money, accumulating it and analyzing it, but we still own it,” he said.

[Updated] Want to disable Tab Groups in Chrome on Android? Here’s how


The following video summarizes this article:

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…

Original story (published on January 29, 2021) follows:

There appears to be a recent server-side update on Google Chrome browser for Android following which the tab-view has been completely altered for many.

Previously, tabs used to appear in a vertical cascading list of cards that spanned the entire length of the screen. This view only allowed previewing one site at a time.

Chrome’s old vertical tab layout

But after the update, tabs now appear in a grid layout allowing several opened sites to be previewed at once without getting obscured.

This change also opens up an avenue for Tab Groups support – something that wasn’t possible earlier. Tab Groups facilitate smoother work-flow as tabs can now be organized into neat little assortments.

chrome-grid-layout

Chrome’s new grid layout for tabs

This is especially useful for power users that keep dozens of tabs open at once. With the change, it will be much easier to find them if there is a large number open at once.

However, there are a couple of downsides to the update too. One-handed usage has become a tad more difficult as tabs are now placed at the top of the screen rather than being aligned to the center. Also, there are many that simply do not like how the grid layout looks.

And while it’s debatable if the changes are for the better or worse, it’s quite clear that most have already made up their minds.

There have been plenty of complaints from angry users asking for the update to be rolled back. Many are also asking for a way to disable the tab groups and grid layout on Chrome.

This is an annoying feature. And it doesn’t even ask if user want to enable it. Chrome devs become worse day by day. It causes many problem for my company when using our web apps with chrome, such as showing update popup randomly, breaks old features, and now this.
Source

If you are one of such users, then there indeed is a way to change the tab view in Chrome for Android back to its previous state. And it involves Chrome Flags.

How to turn off grid-view/tab groups on Chrome for Android

Chrome Flags are experimental features that aren’t yet enabled by default but can be with just a few clicks. They’re simple to use and can transform your browsing experience.

Similarly, there is a switch for the new tab grid-view as well under the list of available flags. To access it, you need to enter chrome://flags into the Chrome address bar.

You will then be directed to the flags page. Next, enter the words “tab grid” in the search bar following which you should see the desired flag show up just like in the below image.

chrome-tab-grid-disable

Simply select it and change its value from ‘Default’ to ‘Disabled’. After this, restart Chrome a couple of times to see the grid layout revert to the good old vertical card view once again.

Furthermore, if you also want to disable tab groups on Chrome, just to be sure, then the #enable-tab-groups flag should help you with that.

Update 1 (February 04)

12:27 pm (IST): As per a Product Expert on the Google forums, it now seems that the option to disable group tabs via Chrome Flags has stopped working.

Seems like this flag was removed and this new feature is now by default, without an option to disable it.
Source

While we were unable to verify this, it could be possible that it actually is a server-side change and has been put into effect for select users only. If true, it’s highly disappointing.

Update 2 (February 20)

11:12 am (IST): As per several Redditors, the grid layout/tab groups UI appears to now have been rolled back on Chrome. A great relief indeed, but there is still no telling if Google might bring it back.

After all, it could be quite possible that the rollback was initiated due to unmentioned bugs. Anyway, for now, it is advisable to find any Chrome flags that include the word ‘group’ and disable them.

Update 3 (February 22)

11:12 am (IST): Contrary to recent reports that Google had rolled back the grid for Tab Groups layout, 9to5Google says the feature is actually rolling out widely.

03:44 pm (IST): As for those uninterested in the new feature, there is room to disable it via the Chrome flags settings, again, contrary to recent reports that the flag had been completely removed from Chrome.

Update 4 (February 23)

12:51 pm (IST): We have tested the workaround to disable the grid view at our end and can confirm that it works. We are sharing the step-by-step screenshots below.

Chrome_grid_view_default

Default grid-view

Chrome_grid_view_change_step1

In Chrome address bar, type “Chrome://flags”

Chrome_grid_view_change_step2

The ‘Experiments’ will show up

Chrome_grid_view_change_step3

In the search box, type “Tab grid layout”

Chrome_grid_view_change_step4

In the drop down menu, instead of ‘Default,’ select ‘Disabled’

Chrome_grid_view_disabled

Relaunch Chrome a couple of times for the change to be implemented

Update 5 (February 24)

For those of you who are interested in keeping the grid-view intact but wish to disable grouping, here’s a user-shared workaround for you.

In the Chrome address bar type “chrome://flags,” and you’ll be redirected to the Experiments page. Over there, in the search box, type “Tab.” Following the Tab Grid Layout, you’ll see three Tab group flags namely ‘Tab groups’, ‘Tab groups continuation,’ and ‘Tab groups UI improvements.’

Set all three of them to ‘Disabled,’ and then relaunch a couple of times for the grouping to be disabled while keeping the grid-view as it is.

Chrome_grid_view_grouping_disabled

We’ve tested the workaround at our end and can ensure that it works.

Update 6 (March 02)

We’ve come across user queries regarding naming/renaming tab groups on Android, just as can be done on Chrome’s desktop version. But going by the reports, the ability to rename and assign specific colours to tab groups is yet to be added to Android.

Update 7 (March 10)

We’ve already highlighted a workaround (update 5 section) to keep the grid-view as it is but disable grouping.

Now we’ve caught hold of another user-shared workaround wherein you have to set ‘Tab Grid Layout’ to enabled, ‘Tab Group’ and ‘Tab Groups Continuation’ to disabled and ‘Tab Groups UI Improvements’ to default.

Tab_grouping_chrome_workaround

This will take away the ‘Group Tabs’ option that shows in the three-dot menu. We’ve tested the workaround at our end and can confirm it works.

Update 8 (March 18)

Just in case you aren’t aware, sharing your feedback with the developers in case you don’t like a feature (while it’s still under the experiment phase) is very important. The reason being, the flags for a feature show up under the Experiments only when a feature is being tested, meaning, you still have the option the enable/disable it.

But once the feature makes way to the stable release, there is no way to revert the change, but get stuck with it forever. This information was recently shared by one of the product experts at the Google Chrome community while addressing users’ queries on how to disable the Reading list feature that was added with Chrome version 89 recently.

So sharing feedback in case of the Tab Groups/Grid view feature in question in this post also becomes important. Else, once the feature makes way to the stable release, you won’t have an option to revert the change. Take a look at how the expert explained the importance of timely give user feedback:

I would also like to recommend that if you don’t like the function, send your opinion to the Chrome team about what aspect you don’t like, or why you don’t like it:
Report a bug or feedback on Chrome – Google Chrome Help

It is very important that you do this, since these comments will be received directly by the Chrome team (they do not usually go through the forums in Spanish). Also, it is important because if this function is set to the stable version for everyone, the flag will eventually be removed, and there will be no way to disable the option.

Update 9 (March 22)

In order to restore the cascading tabs in Chrome on your Android device, here’s another workaround (slightly different from the one mentioned in this article) shared by a product expert at the community:

Please test another possible solution. It’s about the flags again.

So: chrome: // flags and enter “grid layout” should appear:

1. Tab grid layout
2. Tab groups
3. Tab groups continuation
4. Tab switcher on return
5. GTS

And so set it to Disabled for 1,2,3,4 and Enabled for 5. Restart Chrome (or preferably restart the phone).

Update 10 (March 26)

Going by the information shared by one of the users, before the ‘Tab groups’ and ‘Tab grid layout’ flags are permanently disabled (with update version 90), one will be able to access them temporarily. Here’s how:

These flags are set to expire in Chrome 90. After that you can access them temporarily by setting chrome://flags/#temporary-unexpire-flags-m90 until they’re removed permanently.

Update 11 (March 26)

What if Google Chrome was fully customizable and experimental features like Reading List and Tab Groups were all under user control even when they hit stable? Let us know your thoughts by voting on this poll.

Update 12 (April 06)

In case you wish to disable tab grouping and bottom favicon bar, keeping the new tab grid layout intact, in the flags, set Tab Grid Layout to “Enabled.”

In the flag search box in Experiments, type “Enable conditional tabstrip,” and select “Disabled” in the drop-down menu. Relaunch chrome a couple of times for the change to be implemented.

Update 13 (April 15)

Going by the latest user reports, Tab groups/tiled-view is back for some, despite disabling them in the flags. But at least according to some of the affected, the workarounds shared in update 9 section of this article resolved the issue for them.

So those of you facing the problem can give it a shot.

Update 14 (April 16)

For those of you who are facing the issue wherein the disabled Tab groups/grid view is back again despite the flag showing it Disabled, here are a few user-shared workarounds you can try:

Set “Tab Groups” to Disabled.

chrome://flags/#enable-tab-groups

Then force stop the app and reopen.

Disable Grid layout AND tab groups, relaunch the browser then restart your device. Fixed it for me!

In chrome “Settings” “Accessibility”

“Simplified view for open tabs”

I went into flags, searched for anything tab grid related and disables them all (not sure if that helped) because nothing changed. Then I cleared cache and the “free space” storage. When I restarted chrome after that, bye bye dumb tabs!

Update 15 (April 17)

Going by reports, the latest update (version 90) may be to blame for re-enabling the feature despite it disabled in the flags.

So all you need to do is enable chrome://flags/#temporary-unexpire-flags-m89 and chrome://flags/#temporary-unexpire-flags-m88. Here’s how a user has explained this:

Your Chrome probably got updated to v90, that’s why the flags aren’t working anymore.

You can enable them again by going to chrome://flags/#temporary-unexpire-flags-m89 and chrome://flags/#temporary-unexpire-flags-m88 and enable both of them.

Now your flags will work again. Just tested on a updated v90 Chrome

While another user suggests:

Chrome://flags

Set it up like this

Temporarily unexpire m88 flags: enabled

Tab grid layout: disabled

Tab groups: disabled

Tab groups continuation: disabled

Tab switcher on return: disabled

Enable tab-to-GTS animation : disabled

RESTART PHONE

Jamf provides user-friendly device management for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV devices


Whether you have a small business or need large-scale enterprise management, Jamf provides comprehensive tools for Apple devices.

As businesses increase the number of Apple devices across their teams and enact bring-your-own-device policies, using a scalable management solution that works seamlessly with iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV is an invaluable tool. Jamf offers multiple products that can help streamline the IT process for companies with just a few Apple devices, or those running hundreds of Apple devices across multiple locations.

For teams just entering the device management world or companies with no dedicated IT department, Jamf can make potentially frustrating tasks like connecting new employee devices to their email account a one-click process. Once a device is enrolled in Jamf management, administrators can add Wi-Fi networks, VPNs, security protocols, and push enterprise applications to employees without ever touching their device.

Manage iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV with Jamf

I have been personally using Jamf Now for five years and have managed over 100 Apple devices from a single account.

Administrators and IT professionals alike can utilize zero-touch deployment with any Apple device. This allows any business to ship a new Apple product to an employee and the moment it powers on, the device is enrolled in Jamf and the set-up process begins automatically. Users will have access to all the business tools they need right away, and any needed applications will install on first start-up.

Companies can also utilize Jamf’s open enrollment feature that allows anyone in the company to enroll their device into management just by visiting a URL and inputting a password.

Once a device has been added to the Jamf platform, administrators can view information about that iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV such as the operating system that device is running, its serial number, storage capacity, whether or not a passcode has been set, and even push changes to that device remotely.

Administrators using Jamf Now can create Blueprints that save all the applications, security provisions, restrictions, and even wallpaper settings and then apply that Blueprint to any new device that’s added to the management platform.

Settings can be as granular as requiring an alphanumeric passcode, how many failed passcode attempts result in erasing the device, and a maximum auto-lock time. Jamf also gives businesses access to restrict Siri usage, iCloud services, or delay OS updates for a specific amount of time.

Even with these powerful management features, the end-user experience of all Jamf products remains fast and fluid. I have never had complaints from any user with a device being managed by Jamf.

Companies looking for increased security and workflow options should consider Jamf’s Apple Enterprise Management solution which combines their Jamf Connect, Jamf Pro and Jamf Protect products. These advanced solutions when used together automate the entire lifecycle of Apple in the enterprise including the ability to sign on with one set of cloud-identity credentials, device deployment and management, compliance monitoring, security from threats, and much more.

Jamf for education is also available

For small schools to large districts, Jamf also has solutions for education with the Jamf School platform. Unique features for parents and teachers allow management of devices in a classroom or home setting, including advanced iPadOS and tvOS management, and can be used in 1-to-1 iPad initiatives, or complete Mac labs.

Supposed next-gen Apple TV remote turns out to be third-party hardware


Recent reports claimed Apple is developing a new Apple TV remote dubbed “B519,” though that particular device appears to be third-party hardware designed for use by cable companies.

Earlier this week, 9to5Mac reported that Apple is working on a new Apple TV remote expected to launch with a next-generation set-top box later this year. A follow-up on Wednesday, however, reveals the device is in fact a remote designed by Universal Electronics.

Announced in November, the Apple TV accessory was developed and designed to serve cable, satellite, and MVPD companies offering Apple TV 4K as an alternative to the traditional cable box.

Eschewing the Siri Remote’s — controversially — minimalist design, the Universal Electronics hardware is a typical candy bar style remote with a multitude of buttons that flank a central control “wheel.” Dedicated buttons invoke Siri voice control and a programming guide.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple had a hand in designing the remote, though the tech giant’s participation was left unmentioned in a Universal Electronics press release announcing the device last year. The remote is reportedly referred to internally at Apple as “B519,” though that information is also in question.

Reliable reports from Bloomberg have indicated that Apple is indeed preparing a new remote control for a so-called “Apple TV 6” and code discovered in recent tvOS beta version backs up those claims. Last week, for example, code strings in the fourth tvOS 14.5 beta release replaced “Siri Remote” with “Apple TV Remote,” while a fifth beta today points to a remote that includes a center button.

Previous rumblings suggest the new remote will feature fresh capabilities like a device location system similar to Find My on iOS.

Apple updates MagSafe support with medical device warning


Apple has updated a support document warning iPhone users that MagSafe could potentially interfere with pacemakers, defibrillators, and other medical implants that could be affected by magnets.

The magnets within the iPhone 12 series and MagSafe accessories are meant to align the wireless charging coils, as well as to keep accessories affixed to the back of the iPhone itself. While the magnets may not be strong to cause noticeable issues for regular users, people with medical conditions requiring specialized equipment may encounter problems if their iPhone gets too close.

In an update to a support page about the magnets used for MagSafe, Apple added language that warns medical devices including implanted pacemakers and defibrillators “might contain sensors that respond to magnets and radios when in close contact.” Apple doesn’t explain what could happen in such cases, but the worst circumstance could be the deactivation of a medical device and a user’s potential death.

“To avoid any potential interactions with these devices, keep your iPhone and MagSafe accessories a safe distance away from your device,” Apple suggests. The suggested distances are more than 6 inches normally, increased to more than 12 inches when performing wireless charging.

The text, spotted by MacRumors, further advises consulting with a physician and the device manufacturer for “specific guidelines” in relation to MagSafe. If users suspect an iPhone or MagSafe accessory is interfering with their medical device, Apple tells users to stop using the iPhone or accessory immediately.

The update follows after an article in the Heart Rhythm Journal from three doctors in Michigan who tested MagSafe’s effects on a patient’s implantable cardioverter-defibrillator. When the iPhone was brought near to the patient’s chest, the implant immediately ceased working normally.

There is no indication that the doctors’ findings influenced Apple into making the change to the support page.

After President Trump’s Online Ouster, What Is The Future Of Social Media? – WCCO


MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Last week, Facebook and Instagram blocked President Donald Trump; Snapchat indefinitely locked his account; and Twitter permanently suspended him from its site.

Amazon, Apple and Google pulled its technical support for Parler, a social media site favored by the far-right.

So, what might this tell us about the future of social media? WCCO spoke with Jane Kirtley, professor of media law and ethics at the University of Minnesota.

“Well, it’s a very interesting question, isn’t it,” Kirtley said. “Because if we believe that there are too few people controlling social media, you can see that there actually is a threat in the future that those social media companies could control a lot of the information and lot of the opinions the public has access to.”

Private sector organizations like Twitter, Facebook, Amazon and Google aren’t beholden to the protections of speech afforded by First Amendment like the United States government. They create user rules for themselves.

(credit: CBS)

“Do we trust these social media companies? Do we trust them to make those decisions?” Kirtley said. “I think that’s where the real questions are going to rise as we move throughout this year.”

Some experts say part of the reason the tech companies waited until now to limit President Trump is due to a fear of regulation from the government.

Josh Pasek, a professor of communications and media at the University of Michigan, says what’s ahead for these companies is a big unknown.

“They’re thinking they’d rather get ahead of some of that by policing the extreme stuff themselves,” Pasek said.

Lawmakers could repeal or reform Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. That says tech companies can’t be held liable for content created by someone else, and gives the companies themselves discretion on what to allow.

Kirtley said lawmakers could also try to break up what they see as monopolies.

“It is far more likely that a future justice department will go after them on anti-trust grounds,” Kirtley said. “They are vulnerable on that. They know they are, and they’re already being faced with lawsuits about that.”

Kirtley said what happens to the future of these social media sites is hard to know, and could be left up to the incoming Biden administration.

“I do not know, but I would anticipate that we will see new players in this field,” she said. “There’s going to be seen as basically a gap that needs to be filled, whether I come from the right or the left on the political spectrum.”
