According to a new report from BuzzFeed News, Apple is currently planning to unveil its refreshed Apple TV in September. The company had originally planned to unveil the device at WWDC this summer, but scrapped it from the event at the last minute. A September unveil has seemingly been expected since the announcement was pulled from WWDC.
The report goes on to corroborate much of what we reported earlier this year. The refreshed Apple TV is expected to be slimmer than the current-generation device and will feature Apple's new A8 chip. The device will also feature a new remote with a touchpad, as we reported earlier this year. On the software side of things, the device will feature a refreshed interface with support for the long-awaited App Store.
The new Apple TV will support Apple Music, as well. Earlier this year it was reported that the company was also planning to launch a web TV service this fall, but BuzzFeed's report today claims that Apple is not yet ready to unveil the streaming TV service alongside the new Apple TV and will most likely push it until 2016. The Apple TV is also expected to gain Siri voice search support in its update this fall, as well as more on-board storage.
It was reported in the past that the device will not feature support for 4k content, as Apple feels there is not a large enough market for the feature at this time.Filed under: AAPL Company Tagged: Apple, Apple TV, fall, report, TV

You might notice that 9to5Mac has changed. Indeed so has the whole network. Long before the page size/speed and advertising controversies, we knew that we needed to rethink how we presented ourselves.
While we were one of the lightest and fastest sites in our field, our feature creep and advertisers were adding complexity and page load times, which is especially crucial on mobile – an ever expanding percentage of our growing audience.
We decided to start over.You are VIPs (so we are VIP)
One thing we've loved for years is our hosting provider: We're hosted on WordPress's own top-tier VIP. That means we have tons of global redundancy and speed, the latest WordPress code free from hacks and exploits, and the smartest backend help around. VIP is the same platform and servers that Bloomberg, NFL, NBC, Time, NYPost, CNN, Quartz, Fortune and many of the world's top websites use.
VIP obviously costs a lot of money, which is why we're the only Apple site that puts this much of our resources into our hosting. What this buys us (and you) is:
VIP is worth it. You are worth it.
We're also proud to work with 10up, who executed strategy, design, development, and ad integration for our latest iteration. We've been one of 10up's earliest clients, since Jake Goldman started the agency on his own in 2011. 10up has grown to over a hundred employees, and it services the same top-tier class of clients. The fact that we've grown alongside 10up says a lot about both of our organizations.What's new? Everything (else).
We started with a clean slate and questioned everything on the site. If it wasn't integral to the experience, it's gone. If it's important, we cleaned it up and made it better.
We've killed the tag lines on our logos. We've killed the right sidebar because it prevented us from doing full width imagery, media, and writing, and it wasn't great for mobile. We've cleaned up search, social, tags, and category placement. Our new fonts are fresh and more readable across a wide variety of devices. The front page scrolls ‘infinitely' with date and stock price line dividers while article pages load up relevant stories to continue to read. “Asides”, our coverage of niche stories with a one line title, now have images and will open up in-line.
The focus is on beauty and usability across all platforms. From iPhone to iMac and everything in between. We love it and hope you do too.Ads (ugh)
Ads are a particularly painful part of my life, and I could and probably will write a book on the what/whys/hows etc. The bottom line is that banner ads currently are a very necessary evil, but we use DoubleClick for Publishers and Ad Exchange, which are industry standards for speed, reliability, and quality.
The good news is that with the sidebar gone, there are fewer ads, and ads only appear between every two posts on the front page. Ads will only load up as you scroll. That makes the page itself quicker and uses much less data than loading up the front page full of ads right away.
More importantly, we are also experimenting with sponsored posts/native ads that clear the house ads for the day (Get in Touch!). In a perfect world, we'd do one of these a day, every day, all year.New Site! (Electrek.co)
The news that Apple and Google are working on electric cars and building huge solar farms is recent, but we've been covering the “post fossil fuel” transportation industry for two years on Electrek.co (a hobby!). With new writers Fred Lambert and Jon Jivan, we're now going full time.
Cars will change more in the next 10 years than they have in the last 100. Almost every car on the street right now will be valueless.— Seth Weintraub (@llsethj) November 18, 2013
I believe we're in the early stages of a huge transition away from fossil fuel. Coal and natural gas are being replaced by wind and solar power. We're at a tipping point with electric cars where they are starting to cost less to use than gas (even at reduced prices). That's before climate change action by people and governments kick in.
We'll be documenting it all.
Expect full coverage every day of:
As always, we very much appreciate your comments and feedback. We know there will be some “cheese moved” and missing, damaged, or broken stuff. We're currently hard at work making everything perfect. Please, play around and help us find issues.
While this is a huge step for us, we're already working on some new video and podcast ideas, building out the community sites for general use, and even finishing a few apps by our own Benjamin Mayo. We're now over 20 international writers network-wide as well as a whole back office full of folks dedicated to bringing you the latest news, information, and entertainment about the technology you love.
Thanks so much.Filed under: General

This is supposed to be a nude pic of Miley Cyrus…
I would be more into it if her bush was a little more outrageous…trimmed by outrageous..I mean she is one of those armpit hair feminists, that I'd had to find out just does that for impact…
That said, I am a firm believer and lover of bush….and not because I like feminists, or homeless chicks, or obese women who are too lazy to shave…but because it represents EROTICA to me..just get my face in it…and rub that hair all over me…kind of thing…
I am a firm hater of people who think bush is gross, because they've been brain washed to think that it is unhygienic, or bush isn't sexy or erotic, and that bald is beautiful, even though bald is almost just easy to maintain, you just gotta shave it all off..
Now I don't know if this is Miley, but i'll assume it is..because this is something she'd put out there…while I'm waiting for her to do something more inspiring…like tranny sex videos…to really shake things up and expose her existence…

Less than two years after they each went into service, only one of the three Lightning cables pictured above is actually working properly. It's not the big Belkin cable on the left, which is visibly pretty wrecked, or the thick, no-name 6-foot cable on the right, which looks fine on the surface but can't properly supply power to a connected device. The one that works without problems is, amazingly, Apple's official Lightning cable — the one that has been pilloried by numerous dissatisfied users, notably including our own Zac Hall, for coming apart after months or years of use.
These complaints aren't without merit: even Apple-authorized Lightning cables do break, which is particularly infuriating given how expensive they tend to be. But there's a lot of bad information about Lightning cables floating around right now, and having spent a lot of time using them and reading user complaints, I wanted to help people avoid some of their preventable failures. Taking a few precautions can save you a $10 to $20 replacement cost, as well as wasted time and stress…
One thing I've noticed about Lightning cable failures (and reports of Lightning cable failures) is the consistent places where they're happening: many occur at the junction point between the Lightning plug and the soft plastic cable, some impact the Lightning plug's pins, and relatively few are at or near the USB port. The reasons are a combination of strain, corrosion, and — in some cases, but fewer than one might think — shoddy manufacturing.
As a general rule, legitimately Apple-authorized Lightning cables don't sell for less than $8; apart from Amazon's cables, relatively few are less than $10. If you're getting a cable for less than that, even if it's claimed to be an authentic Lightning cable, you can automatically assume that corners were cut when making it, and that you're taking on a higher risk of a failure that's not (entirely) your fault. By comparison, strain and corrosion typically are your fault. Yank on a cable, pull it from both sides, or let it make contact with liquids — very few cables are going to be able to withstand that sort of (ab)use. So here's what you can do to keep your cables working.
(1) Grasp the hard plastic jacket, and only the hard plastic jacket, when connecting and disconnecting the Lightning plug. Apple touted the Lightning connector as more durable than the 30-pin Dock Connector it replaced. And the connector is indeed more durable — after testing tons of cables, I have yet to see an authorized Lightning plug or even the hard plastic jacket around it come apart. But the cabling itself is made from a softer plastic that can detach from the connector. If you grip the hard plastic jacket when plugging and unplugging the Lightning connector, you'll considerably reduce the likelihood of cable failure.
(2) Don't strain or kink the cable. Lightning cables are almost all coated in soft plastic (rarely in resilient fabric), but regardless of their exteriors, they contain bundles of thin wires that can break — invisibly. If you stretch a cable to its maximum length and tug, put a bunch of sharp bends into the center of the cable, or knot it, you may see what appears to be elastic, rubbery flexibility outside, but the metal inside is preparing to snap. Apple's cables and most others have “strain relief” points between their plugs and cabling, but they're only “relief,” not cure-alls. Avoiding sharp bends in the Lightning cable and tugs on the ends will keep your cable working longer.
(3) Keep the pins clean and away from liquids of any kind. If you want to criticize the Lightning standard for any design flaw, its use of exposed pins (versus the metal jackets found on micro-USB and USB-C) would be the easiest target. Exposed pins are easier to scrape off, damage, or splash with a stray soft drink droplet causing corrosion. Any of these things could easily happen if a Lightning cable is used in a car near a cup holder where keys, coins, or beverages are often found. Jacketed pins aren't immune from these issues, but they're less likely. The best thing you can do is keep the pins clean — both on your cable, and on the device you're using with the cable. Dry off any moisture immediately, and make sure nothing has gotten into your iPhone, iPad, or iPod's Lightning port that might mess up the connection.
If you've followed these guidelines and your cable has failed, don't hesitate to contact the cable's manufacturer for a replacement. Your warranty period will depend on the cable's own warranty, the country where you live, and — if it's an Apple product — whether you have AppleCare, which might well have extended the warranty's duration by a year. If you're completely out of luck with the cable, vote with your pocketbook and buy a replacement from another company instead.

Tim Cook tweeted his thanks today to the “thousands of Hong Kong customers” who attended the opening of the company's fourth Apple Store in Hong Kong.
Plans for the store were first announced in 2013, with construction photos first seen in February. Apple announced the opening date on its website a couple of weeks ago. The additional store is part of Apple's ambitious expansion program in China, having so far opened six of the 25 new stores it plans to open within two years.
Photos of the new store can be seen below …
The Tsim Sha Tsui Apple Store is located at 100 Canton Road in a high-end retail area in Kowloon. A number of big-name fashion brands have stores in the same area.
Unwire took some photos the night before the opening. We've put together a gallery of these below – click on any of the photos to view full size, and check out the complete set over at unwire.hk.

Reeder says the new version will be available as a free update to current Reeder 2 customers when it's completed.For now, anyone can try out the public beta of Reeder 3 for Mac. The app works with many popular post-Google News RSS services including Feedly and Feed Wrangler as well as read-it-later services like Instapaper, a new addition to the app, and Readability. Reeder can also be used as a local standalone RSS client without syncing features.
Aside from the visual refresh including a new icon and added themes, the new version also includes features like private browsing and better smart folder support.
Reeder users running OS X El Capitan either in developer beta or public beta will appreciate support for Apple's new San Francisco system font. Reeder 3 also supports El Cap's new split-screen feature when using two full-screen apps side-by-side.
Reeder 3 public beta requires OS X 10.10 Yosemite or later. You can grab the public beta for free from reederapp.com, and Reeder 2 is available for $9.99 in the Mac App Store. You can buy the current version and update to the new version when it's complete.

Strategy Analytics has issued its latest estimates of global mobile phone shipments, and reports that Apple's market share climbed from 8.2% in Q2 2014 to 10.9% in the same quarter this year. Apple revealed in its latest quarterly earnings that it saw iPhone sales climb 35% year-on-year to 47M units.
The research firm said that Apple's dramatic growth in iPhone shipments contrasted strongly with an overall industry growth rate of just 2% …
Huawei was the other big winner, seeing its shipments grow almost 50% to 30.6M units, overtaking Microsoft (which incorporates the Nokia-designed Lumia) to become the third-largest mobile phone vendor in the world.
Samsung retained the number one slot, but saw its market share slip from 22.3% to 20.5% on disappointing Galaxy S6 sales. Samsung earlier revealed an 8% drop in profits, the fifth year running it has reported a decline in profitability.
As ever, market share is of only secondary interest to Apple, which chases profits rather than sales. A recent report suggested that Apple took 92% of all profits for the entire smartphone industry.Filed under: AAPL Company, iOS Devices Tagged: Android (operating system), Apple Inc, iOS, iPhone, iPhone market share, Market share, Microsoft, Nokia, Smartphone

Two weeks after releasing the first beta of OS X 10.10.5, Apple today has released beta 2 of the operating system to developers. The second beta build carries the build number 14F19a and is available to testers via the Mac App Store now.
Earlier today, Apple released beta 2 of iOS 8.4.1 to developers to test. Seeing that OS X El Capitan is slated to be released this fall, it seems likely that 10.10.5 is the last update Yosemite will see. Developers currently, of course, are focused on developing for El Capitan and iOS 9, which means these more incremental updates are likely not seeing as much usage. It remains unclear, however, when iOS 8.4.1 and OS X 10.10.5 will rollout to the public.
OS X 10.10.5 beta 2 is available via the Mac App Store now and should be available via the Developer Center soon, with a full changelog, as well.Filed under: AAPL Company
