Valve's 'Steam Link' App Now Available on iOS

Valve's Steam Link app, which is designed to let you play Steam games on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV has finally made its way to iOS and is available for download as of today. Valve first announced the Steam Link app in May 2018 and planned to launch it soon after, but Apple ended up rejecting the app due to "business conflicts." Though Valve argued that Steam Link was similar to other remote desktop-based apps that provide access to a PC or Mac, Apple refused to budge and did not allow Valve to release Steam Link until now. Apple's marketing chief Phil Schiller said in 2018 that Apple would continue to work with Valve to "bring the Steam experience to iOS and Apple TV in a way that complies with the [App Store] guidelines," and it appears the two companies were finally able to reach an agreement. Valve said that it would remove the ability to purchase apps from within Steam Link in an effort to get Apple to approve the app, which may have allowed it onto the App Store. When connecting Steam Link to a PC or Mac, the main view is of your library, aka the games you've already purchased, and there is no readily apparent option for purchasing content directly on your iOS device. The new Steam Link app for iOS lets you play your Steam games on an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV by streaming them from a Mac or PC. The Steam Link app essentially mirrors the content on your Mac or PC to your device. iOS 10 or later is required, and Valve recommends using 5GHz internet connections for the best performance. Games can be played using a Made for iPhone or Steam

Apple Seeds First Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.6 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming macOS 10.14.6 update to developers for testing purposes, just a few days after releasing macOS 10.14.5, an update that brought AirPlay 2 support to the Mac. The new macOS Mojave 10.14.6 beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after the proper profile has been installed from Apple's Developer Center. We don't yet know what improvements the next update to macOS Mojave will bring, but it is likely to include bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that weren't able to be addressed in the macOS Mojave 10.14.5 update. macOS 10.14.6 is likely to be one of the last updates to the macOS Mojave operating system as Apple will soon transition to work on macOS 10.15, the as-of-yet unnamed next-generation version of the macOS operating system. Apple will debut macOS 10.15 at the Worldwide Developers Conference, set to kick off on June 3. While it will be in beta testing for several months before seeing a fall release, work on current software often slows down as Apple gets ready to launch new

Apple Seeds First Beta of Upcoming tvOS 12.4 Update to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 12.4 update to developers for testing purposes, a few days after releasing the tvOS 12.3 update. Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the new tvOS 12.4 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV through a profile that's installed using Apple's Xcode software. tvOS updates have historically been minor in scale, focusing on under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements rather than major outward-facing changes. Apple provides little to no information on what's included in tvOS updates, so we may not discover anything new after installing the new beta. We don't always know what's new, but we do share tvOS updates so developers are able to download new software upon release. tvOS 12.3, the prior update, was a one of the most significant tvOS updates we've had to date, introducing an updated TV app along with a new Channels feature designed to let Apple TV users purchase subscriptions to services like HBO, Showtime, Starz, and more right in the TV app. Should we discover new features in tvOS 12.4, we'll update this post with

Apple Seeds First Beta of watchOS 5.3 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming watchOS 5.3 update to developers, just a couple of days after releasing watchOS 5.2.1, an update that expanded ECG availability and introduced new pride watch faces. Once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Apple Developer Center, the new watchOS beta can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software update. To install the update, the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it has to be in range of the iPhone. It's not yet clear what features will be introduced in the watchOS 5.3 update, but as 5.x software, it could introduce new features and notable changes, and it's also likely to focus on bug fixes and other under-the-hood performance improvements. Should we find new features in the watchOS 5.3 beta, we'll update this post with

Apple Releases Safari Technology Preview 82 With Bug Fixes and Performance Improvements

Apple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced three years ago in March 2016. Apple designed the Safari Technology Preview to test features that may be introduced into future release versions of Safari. Safari Technology Preview release 82 includes bug fixes and performance improvements for Web API, JavaScript, Media, Storage, CSS, Accessibility, Web Inspector, Web Driver, Web Authentication, and WebGPU. A new browser change means that when you uncheck "Allow websites to ask for permission to send notifications," it will disable prompting for HTML5 notifications. The new Safari Technology Preview update is available for both macOS High Sierra and macOS Mojave, the newest version of the Mac operating system that was released to the public in September 2018. The Safari Technology Preview update is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store to anyone who has downloaded the browser. Full release notes for the update are available on the Safari Technology Preview website. Apple’s aim with Safari Technology Preview is to gather feedback from developers and users on its browser development process. Safari Technology Preview can run side-by-side with the existing Safari browser and while designed for developers, it does not require a developer account to

Apple Seeds First Beta of iOS 12.4 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming iOS 12.4 update to developers, a few days after the launch of iOS 12.3, a major update that introduced Apple's revamped TV app. Registered developers can download the new iOS 12.4 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center. As a 12.x update, the new software may include more significant features than the smaller 12.x.x updates. iOS 12.4 will mark the the fourth major update to iOS 12 after iOS 12.3, which introduced a redesigned TV app with Apple's new Channels feature for subscribing to and watching third-party subscription content right in the TV app. We don't yet know what we can expect to see in iOS 12.4, but we'll update this post as soon as we download the software and discover what's new. It's likely that this beta includes some Apple Card-related features, as the Apple Card is set to launch in the summer. iOS 12.4 may be one of the last updates to the iOS 12 operating system as Apple transitions to iOS 13, which is expected to be introduced at WWDC in

Apple CEO Tim Cook Promotes New Statue of Liberty Augmented Reality App

Apple CEO Tim Cook this afternoon encouraged his Twitter followers to check out the new Statue of Liberty augmented reality app for iOS, which was conceptualized by Diane von Fürstenberg to celebrate the launch of the Statue of Liberty Museum this Thursday. According to the Vogue article on the app, it was created by the Statue of Liberty Foundation and Yap Studios. Its creation took more than a year of scanning and photography, and it offers up a time-lapse view from the statue's eyes, a look inside of it, and a time-lapse of how the color changed over time. The main feature, though, is several 3D models of the Statue of Liberty that can be projected into your own home. There's a full-size model plus close-ups of the torch and the Statue's foot. Try it! https://t.co/75awGrX1Uo— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) May 14, 2019 The app is designed to help visitors to the museum and those who are viewing from home understand the construction and the detail of the Statue of Liberty, thanks to augmented reality. Apple was one of the donors of the project after Diane von Fürstenberg connected Tim Cook and the Statue of Liberty Foundation. "I met Tim Cook from Apple, and discovered first of all that he had never been to Liberty Island, so I arranged for him to go," DvF revealed. "Not even knowing what I was talking about, I said, 'Wouldn't it be wonderful to give people an Apple experience when they go on the Island?' I met the people who do apps and we started, not knowing where it would all end up. The foundation created this app that will reach hundreds of millions of

Hands-On With the OnePlus 7 Pro's New Pop-Up Camera and Bezel-Free Display

OnePlus today unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 7 Pro, which offers an impressive feature set at a price that beats out flagship devices from other smartphone manufacturers, including Apple. We were able to go hands-on with the OnePlus 7 Pro at the OnePlus event this morning, so we thought we'd give MacRumors readers a look at the bezel-free display and pop-up camera, both of which are great smartphone features. Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos. The OnePlus 7 Pro is all display, with a 6.67-inch OLED screen that takes up the entire front of the device. There are no camera cutouts or notches on the display at all, and that's because OnePlus is using a nifty little front-facing camera that pops out of the back of the phone when you want to use it. It's a feature that's unique to the OnePlus device, and it allows for an edge-to-edge top-to-bottom bezel-free display without sacrificing the selfie camera. The little pop out camera seems rather durable, though we'll have to see how it holds up over time. OnePlus uploaded a video demonstrating the camera opening and closing more than 300,000 times (it's 12 hours long!) and another video that demonstrated it lifting up a rock, so it certainly seems to be able to hold up to abuse. Though it's got a 6.67-inch display, the OnePlus 7 Pro is similar in size to the iPhone XS Max, just because there's no bezels to deal with. The display does curve around the edges of the device, which some may not like, but it looks undeniably good. OnePlus calls the display a "Fluid

Facebook Brings Back 'View As Public' Feature That Was Removed Because of Security Issues

Facebook today announced that it is reintroducing the "View As Public" feature that's designed to let you see your Facebook profile as a non-friend sees it, so you can double check that you're not sharing information publicly that you don't want to share. In addition, Facebook is adding an "Edit Public Details" button directly to your profile, which will make it easier to adjust what information about you is publicly visible. Today, we're making it easier for people to manage their publicly visible information on Facebook with two updates: (1) we’re bringing back the “View As Public” feature and (2) we’re adding an “Edit Public Details” button directly to profiles. pic.twitter.com/zI5bVwodjp— Facebook (@facebook) May 14, 2019 Facebook removed all "View As" features in September 2018 after a vulnerability with the feature allowed hackers to steal Facebook access tokens for almost 50 million accounts. Facebook now says that the "View As" feature for viewing an account as a member of the public was not affected by the security incident and was more popular than the "View as Specific Person" options that are still

Many Warner Bros Movies Have Reverted to HD Instead of 4K on iTunes and in User Movie Libraries [Update]

Over the course of the last week or so, multiple Warner Bros movies that were previously available in 4K have reverted to HD, a change that applies to new purchases from iTunes as well as previously purchased movies. There are complaints about the change both on Twitter and on the Blu-ray forums, as highlighted by 9to5Mac this afternoon. There are quite a few titles that have reverted from 4K to HD, including all of the Harry Potter movies. A Blu-ray forums user compiled a list of the known titles that have recently been downgraded from 4K to HD. 22 Jump Street (2014) About Last Night Aloha (2015) American Sniper Annie (2014) Batman vs. Superman The Brothers Grimsby (2016) The Equalizer (2014) Fast & Furious 6 (2013) Ghostbusters II (1989) Goosebumps (2015) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 (2011) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 (2010) Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) Hercules (2014) Hitch (2005) Hotel Deluxe (2013) Matrix Reloaded The Matrix Revolutions (2003) Risen (2016) Spaceballs (1987) Taxi Driver (1976) Unforgiven (1993) The Walk (2015) X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) It's not clear why these movies are no longer available in 4K, but there have been instances where movies are downgraded to HD and

iPhone XS Max Signal Strength Compared to OnePlus 7 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10

The Samsung Galaxy S10 and the new OnePlus 7 Pro are both flagship smartphones that are designed to compete with the iPhone XS Max, and to see how their LTE chips compare, PCMag teamed up with Cellular Insights to test the signal strength of the new devices. Apple's iPhone XS Max is equipped with an XMM7560 modem chip from Intel, while the Galaxy S10 and the OnePlus 7 Pro are using Qualcomm's X24 modem, which theoretically offers better performance. iPhone XS Max in blue, OnePlus 7 Pro in orange, Samsung Galaxy S10 in gray, and LG V40 in yellow The Intel XMM7560 modem in the iPhone XS Max supports supports 5-carrier aggregation but offers 1Gb/s maximum theoretical data transfer speeds, while the Qualcomm X24 in the Galaxy S10 has max theoretical speeds of 2Gb/s (it uses 7-carrier aggregation) and the OnePlus 7 Pro has max theoretical speeds of 1.2Gb/s (lower because it uses 5-carrier aggregation like the iPhone). In testing on LTE band 4 with good signal, there wasn't a lot of difference in performance between the iPhone XS Max, the newer smartphones from Samsung and OnePlus, and the LG V40, which PCMag added in because it was 2018's best performing phone in terms of cellular speed. All of the smartphones performed similarly, but the Samsung Galaxy S10 did see some of the slowest speeds, and at peak signal, the iPhone XS came in behind the OnePlus 7 Pro and the LG V40. In a test with poorer LTE signal, the iPhone XS Max saw the slowest speeds and was outperformed by all of the Qualcomm chips. The iPhone XS Max was quite a bit slower than the Galaxy S10 and

New 'ZombieLoad' Vulnerability Affects Intel Chips Dating Back to 2011, Apple Released Patch in macOS 10.14.5 [Updated]

Security researchers have discovered a new set of vulnerabilities that affect Intel chips dating back to 2011, including the chips that have been used in Apple devices. As outlined by TechCrunch, "ZombieLoad," as it's being called, consists of four bugs that can allow hackers to exploit the design flaws in the chips to steal sensitive information directly from the processor. These vulnerabilities are as serious as the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities that were discovered in early 2018 and take advantage of the same speculative execution process, which is designed to speed up data processing and performance. A white paper shared by notable security researchers (including some who worked on Spectre and Meltdown) offers details on how ZombieLoad functions. [PDF]While programs normally only see their own data, a malicious program can exploit the fill buffers to get hold of secrets currently processed by other running programs. These secrets can be user-level secrets, such as browser history, website content, user keys, and passwords, or system-level secrets, such as disk encryption keys. The attack does not only work on personal computers but can also be exploited in the cloud.ZombieLoad impacts almost every Intel computer dating back to 2011, but AMD and ARM chips are not affected. A demonstration of ZombieLoad was shared on YouTube, displaying how it works to see what you're doing on your computer. While spying on web browsing is demoed, it can also be used for other purposes like stealing passwords. There have been no reports of hackers taking

Apple Lowers Maximum iPhone Trade-In Values, Best Deals Now Limited to Trade-Ins with Purchase

Apple recently lowered direct trade-in values for iPhones, providing customers with a maximum of $349 when trading in an iPhone without purchasing a new one at the same time. Apple used to offer a maximum of $500 when doing a direct iPhone trade-in through its trade-in website, and just a few weeks ago, we tested trading in an iPhone X and were offered $500 by Apple. Today, Apple's maximum price for the same iPhone X is $349. iPhone X trade-in value from April 30 (trade-in site) Not all iPhones were worth $500, but for newer models in good condition, Apple was indeed providing credit up to $500 in the form of an Apple gift card that could be put towards a new device purchase. iPhone X trade-in value today (trade-in site) The $349 maximum seems to apply only to direct trade-ins that don't involve a purchase. If you use the trade-in process while purchasing a new iPhone, which puts the cost of that trade-in towards the new device, you can get higher prices. That same iPhone X that's worth $349 when doing a direct trade-in with Apple is worth $450 if you trade it in while buying a new iPhone XR. At $450, Apple is still offering less than the $500 maximum iPhone trade-in value that was available before, but it's still better than the $349 that's available through the trade-in site. On its trade-in site, Apple heavily promoted a $449 trade-in price for the iPhone XR when trading in an iPhone 8 or iPhone 7 Plus, but now the advertised pricing is $479 instead of $449. Listed iPhone XR and XS pricing with trade-in has gone up across the board as Apple has dropped

Pixelmator Pro Gains New ML Match Colors Feature for Matching Colors Across Different Photos

Pixelmator Pro, a popular photo editing app for the Mac, was today updated with a useful new feature called ML Match Colors. ML Match Colors is designed to intelligently match the colors of different photos to give them the same overall look, which is a useful feature if you want all of your photos to have the same aesthetic. Like other ML features, ML Match Colors uses Core ML as its backbone. It was built using a machine learning algorithm trained on more than 20 million professional photos. The feature analyzes the colors of the source and target images and then it applies color adjustments to the target image adjusting parameters like white balance, lighting, brightness, shadows, highlights, and more. In all, the ML Match Colors feature fine tunes 37 different adjustments in just a second to create photographs with the exact look that you're going for. ML Match Colors is available as an individual tool and in the Edit menu as a "Paste and Match Colors" option so you can automatically color match objects when pasting them into an image. In the near future, Pixelmator also plans to bring the ML Match Colors feature to its Pixelmator Photo editing app for the iPad. Today's update also includes a new Free Transform feature for freely resizing, distorting, and transforming layers, plus it has a long list of bug fixes and performance improvements. Pixelmator Pro can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $39.99. [Direct Link]

Adobe Updates Lightroom Apps for Mac and iOS With New Tutorials, Texture Tool and More

Adobe today announced new Lightroom updates for the Lightroom iOS app and the Lightroom app designed for Macs. In Lightroom for iOS (and Android), there's a new Home view that offers up access to recent photos, interactive tutorials, and inspirational photos, providing you with ideas and the steps to execute those ideas. Adobe's new interactive tutorials for Lightroom walk you through each edit step-by-step, allowing you to adjust the sliders using Adobe's guidance and instruction. The inspirational photos let you see how a photo was made with a list of step-by-step edits available. You can open up the Edits control to open up a wheel where you'll be able to scroll through the edits to see which settings were used. Interactive tutorials and inspirational photos are limited to Adobe's mobile Lightroom apps at the current time, but are coming to Macs in the future. Adobe for Mac is gaining an updated help interface that provides more searchable information about each tool, along with built-in tutorials. Starting today in all versions of Lightroom, there are updated collaboration features for inviting others to add photos to your album. You can also share a link that will let people request access to an album. Also new to all versions of Lightroom is a Texture tool that will accentuate or smooth medium-sized details like skin, bark, and hair. It's able to smooth skin without affecting pore details or accentuate hair without increasing the presence of noise because it's specifically designed for medium-sized details. On the Mac, there's a new

WhatsApp Vulnerability Left iPhones Vulnerable to Israeli Spyware [Updated]

WhatsApp today disclosed a vulnerability that allowed hackers to remotely exploit a bug in the app's audio call system to access sensitive information on an iPhone or Android device. According to The New York Times, attackers were able to insert malicious code into WhatsApp, allowing them to steal data, regardless of whether or not a WhatsApp phone call was answered. Security researchers said that the spyware that took advantage of this flaw featured characteristics of the Pegasus spyware from NSO Group, which is normally licensed to governments who purchase the spyware for installing on the devices of individuals who are the target of an investigation.Description:A buffer overflow vulnerability in WhatsApp VOIP stack allowed remote code execution via specially crafted series of SRTCP packets sent to a target phone number. Affected Versions: The issue affects WhatsApp for Android prior to v2.19.134, WhatsApp Business for Android prior to v2.19.44, WhatsApp for iOS prior to v2.19.51, WhatsApp Business for iOS prior to v2.19.51, WhatsApp for Windows Phone prior to v2.18.348, and WhatsApp for Tizen prior to v2.18.15.The vulnerability was described by WhatsApp as "nontrivial to deploy, limiting it to advanced and highly motivated actors," but it's not clear how long the security flaw was available nor how many people were affected. It was used to target a London lawyer who has been involved in lawsuits against the NSO Group, and security researchers believe others could have been targeted as well. WhatsApp engineers "worked around the clock" to address the

Tariff on Apple Chargers and Cases Jumps, Now at 25%

Apple products have largely escaped the tariffs imposed on goods manufactured in China, but since earlier this year, Apple accessories like power adapters, cables, and cases have been subject to a 10 percent fee. As noted by The Verge, the United States on Friday raised import taxes from 10 percent to 25 percent, a tax increase that's going to impact these Apple accessories. Thus far, Apple and its suppliers have absorbed the additional 10 percent fee on Apple accessories and prices have not gone up, but with tariffs now at 25 percent, it's not yet clear if Apple will continue to eat the extra cost. Apple may be making enough money to continue to sell its accessories at a normal cost, and as The Verge points out, it could have shifted manufacturing to different countries to avoid the fees all together. Apple has not commented on the extra tariffs at this point in time. China today retaliated and announced increased tariffs on $60 billion in U.S. goods, which will take effect in June. China will be introducing import fees on petrochemicals, soy oil, peanut oil, and more. Apple CEO Tim Cook last July said that Apple is hoping "calm heads prevail" and that the company is "optimistic" the tariff issue will be sorted out. That hasn't happened yet, but so far, the bulk of Apple products continue to be unaffected. Note: Due to the political nature of the discussion regarding this topic, the discussion thread is located in our Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum. All forum members and site visitors are welcome to read and follow the thread, but posting is

Adobe Warns Customers of Potential Legal Action for Using Older Versions of Creative Cloud Apps

Last week, Adobe announced that older versions of Creative Cloud apps such as Photoshop and Lightroom would no longer be available to its subscribers, and today, Adobe started sending out warning emails encouraging customers to update or potentially risk legal action. Adobe today started sending out warning emails to customers who are using older versions of Creative Cloud apps, letting them know those older versions are no longer licensed. "Please be aware that should you continue to use the discontinued version(s), you may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third parties," warns the email. Adobe goes on to suggest that customers upgrade to the latest versions of the Creative Cloud apps using the Creative Cloud Desktop application. I just got an email from @Adobe that I'm no longer allowed to use the software that I'm paying for. Time to cancel my subscription I guess. Share plz. pic.twitter.com/ZIIdqK5AkM— Matt Roszak 🍞 (@KupoGames) May 10, 2019 Adobe last week said that going forward, Creative Cloud members will only have direct download access to the two most recent major versions of Creative Cloud desktop applications rather than multiple earlier versions.Focusing our efforts on the latest two major releases of Creative Cloud applications, which the vast majority of Adobe customers are already using, will further enable us to develop the features and functionality most requested by customers and ensure peak performance and benefits across Windows and Mac operating systems.

Apple Announces Support for NFC Tags That Trigger Apple Pay

At the TRANSACT Conference in Las Vegas back in early May, Apple VP of Apple Pay Jennifer Bailey detailed some new Apple Pay features that Apple will be rolling out in the future. As noted by Scott Harkey and Steve Moser on Twitter, Bailey outlined support for new NFC stickers or tags that will trigger Apple Pay for a payment without needing to have an app installed. When you tap these stickers, you will be able to make an Apple Pay payment quickly and easily. Apple is partnering with Bird (a scooter company), Bonobos (a clothing store) and PayByPhone parking meters for the rollout of the service. With the latter service, you can pay a parking meter with Apple Pay and then add more time to your meter from anywhere so your parking doesn't expire. Apple is also planning on an instant enrollment feature for loyalty cards in the Wallet app in the near future. Dairy Queen, Panera Bread, Yogurtland, Jimmy John's, Dave & Busters, and Caribou Coffee are all planning to launch services later this year that will use NFC tags allowing customers to sign up for loyalty cards. Apple announced support for NFC stickers/tags that trigger Apple Pay for payment without having an app installed. Imagine tapping your phone on a scooter or a parking-meter and paying for it without signing up or downloading an app first. #ApplePay https://t.co/owgOsH3N7L pic.twitter.com/jpxUf7H6v6— Steve Moser (@SteveMoser) May 13, 2019 The new Apple Pay features use NFC features that Apple first began allowing access to in iOS 11. We may hear more about these new features at WWDC, set to kick
