It's CES week and thousands of companies are in Las Vegas showing off their newest and best tech-related products. CES is wrapping up today and tomorrow, but there's still plenty to see. Over the course of the last couple of days, we've scoured the show floor for the most unique and interesting products, some that are Apple related and some that are neat, but more general tech. Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos. Brydge Pro+ Brydge, known for its range of keyboards designed for iPads, debuted a new keyboard designed for the iPad Pro.

TiVo's Planned Apple TV App 'In Limbo'

During the January 2019 CES event, TiVo demoed a TiVo app to the Apple TV, but a year later, the project is "in limbo" and an Apple TV app is no longer being actively developed. In an interview with TechHive at CES 2020, TiVo vice president of consumer products and services Ted Malone said that while ‌Apple TV‌ app plans haven't been canceled, it's not TiVo's focus at this time. "My bet is we'll get Android, and because of that we'll get the Fire TV, because it's the same app, just different qualifications," Malone said. "I think Roku and Apple are in limbo."TiVo had initially planned to release new apps for Roku, ‌Apple TV‌, Fire TV, and Android TV at some point in 2019, allowing TiVo users to access TiVo DVRs on other TVs throughout the home without the need to purchase TiVo Mini boxes, but limited resources, technical challenges, and strategy changes have delayed those plans. According to Malone, TiVo has to transcode video before sending it to other devices, which results in quality and performance issues that TiVo has not been able to resolve. The company has also been working on the TiVo Stream 4K and the TiVo+ streaming service, and an ‌Apple TV‌ app is not a priority. Malone said that TiVo needs to "double down" on the streaming market and not get distracted by a "bunch of things people want, but aren't really going to move the

CES 2020: JBL Debuts Soundbar With Detachable Speakers and AirPlay 2 Compatibility

Speaker company JBL this week announced the upcoming launch of the JBL Bar 9.1, a new soundbar that offers AirPlay 2 and a unique detachable speaker setup. The JBL Bar 9.1 offers wireless surround sound thanks to the included soundbar base and two detachable battery powered rear speakers that can be removed and placed anywhere in a room for optimal sound. There's a base soundbar with four upward-facing Dolby Atmos drivers that are designed to bounce audio around the room from all angles, a 10-inch wireless subwoofer for "pulse-pounding" bass, and the two detachable speakers that are meant to shoot sound off of the ceiling and back down. The speakers feature 10 hour battery life and can be returned to the soundbar for recharging purposes when the battery drains. 10 hours is enough to get through a night of entertainment, recharging the batteries during the day or overnight. Along with Dolby Atmos, the Bar 9.1 supports Dolby Vision and it also has support for ‌AirPlay‌ 2, so it can interface with other ‌AirPlay‌ 2 devices and playing audio to the soundbar from a Mac, iPad, an iPhone takes just a tap or two. Bluetooth and Chromecast are also supported. JBL plans to begin offering the JBL Bar 9.1 on the JBL website in the spring of 2020. It will be priced at

Twitter Adding 'Conversation Participants' Option to Limit Replies to Tweets

At CES, Twitter's director of product management Suzanne Xie outlined some new features that are coming to the social network, and The Verge has shared details on what we can expect. In the future, Twitter will add a "conversation participants" option on the screen where a tweet is composed. Twitter users will be able to choose between four options: Global, Group, Panel, and Statement. The Global feature will let anyone reply, while Group will limit replies to people a Twitter user follows and mentions. Panel will allow people specifically mentioned in a tweet to reply, and Statement will presumably disable replies all together. As The Verge points out, this will allow Twitter users to limit the spread of their tweets with a middle ground between public and private. Twitter is also planning to add a specific conversation view that puts all of a conversation on a single screen, making it easy to sort through different tweets and their replies. Other features in the works include list display customization, prompts for following topics, and options to make it easier to find lists. There's no word on when these new features might come to Twitter, but the conversation participants option is slated to be added this

CES 2020: August Debuts Smaller and Sleeker Wi-Fi Smart Lock With HomeKit Support and No Bridge Required

August today introduced a new HomeKit-enabled Wi-Fi Smart Lock. As the product name implies, the lock features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, eliminating the need to use a bridge that was previously required. August says the Wi-Fi Smart Lock is 45 percent smaller and 20 percent slimmer than its Smart Lock Pro. Available in matte black and silver, the lock also sports a sleeker design with more rounded edges. As with other smart locks, the Wi-Fi Smart Lock allows you to lock or unlock a door remotely and grant access to family members, friends, and trusted visitors. And with the Activity Feed, you can know who is coming and going at any time, complete with push notifications. There are also auto-lock and auto-unlock features. HomeKit support allows the lock to be controlled through the Home app on an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch, or with Siri voice commands. For example, on an iPhone or HomePod, you could say "Hey Siri, lock my front door." The lock also supports Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and a few other platforms. Installing the Wi-Fi Smart Lock takes less than 10 minutes, according to August. The lock can be installed on the inside of your door over your existing deadbolt, without touching the outside lock, allowing you to keep your existing deadbolt and keys. August door locks are compatible with most single cylinder deadbolts. August says the Wi-Fi Smart Lock will soon be available to purchase on its website, but it has yet to reveal an exact release date or pricing. Interested customers can sign up to be notified when it is

CES 2020: Samsung Debuts New T7 Touch SSD With Fingerprint Sensor for Securing Files

Samsung today announced the launch of its new Portable SSD T7 Touch, an SSD with 500GB, 1TB, or 2TB of storage space. According to Samsung, the SSD T7 Touch combines a sleek and compact design with the fastest transfer speeds that are offered by the USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard. Users can expect to see read speeds up to 1,050MB/s and write speeds up to 1,000MB/s, with the SSD T7 Touch coming in at twice as fast as the T5 and 9.5 times faster than external hard drives. It is able to reach its maximum speed when used with the NVMe interface. Though it's faster, the SSD continues to weigh in at 58 grams, and it measures in at 3.3 by 3.3 by 0.3 inches, so it's pocketable. The T7 Touch earns its "touch" name with the inclusion of a built-in fingerprint sensor along with password protection and AES 256-bit hardware encryption. The fingerprint sensor is able to recognize up to four fingerprints, which means it can be used collaboratively while still keeping files secure. Accessing data can be done by holding a fingerprint over the drive's casing to unlock it. There's also a built-in Motion LED that lets the user see the status of the device with a glance. Samsung is offering the T7 Touch in silver or black and it comes in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities for $130, $230, and $400, respectively. It ships with a USB-C to USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-A cable, and is compatible with Windows and Mac. Samsung plans to begin offering the Portable SSD T7 Touch later this month. Samsung will also launch an SSD T7 in the second quarter of

Apple's Privacy Officer Jane Horvath Uses CES Appearance to Defend Company Stance on Encryption and Software Backdoors

Apple's chief privacy officer attended a discussion panel at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Tuesday to debate the state of consumer privacy, marking the first time in 28 years that Apple has been at CES in an official capacity. Apple's privacy officer at CES 2020 panel (Image: Parker Ortolani) Jane Horvath, Apple's senior director for global privacy, joined an all-female panel consisting of representatives from Facebook, Procter & Gamble and the Federal Trade Commission. During the discussion, Horvath defended Apple's use of encryption to protect customer data on mobile devices. "Our phones are relatively small and they get lost and stolen," Horvath said. "If we're going to be able to rely on our health data and finance data on our devices, we need to make sure that if you misplace that device, you're not losing your sensitive data."Apple has held a consistent position regarding its use of encryption, even if that means it has limited ability to help law enforcement access data on devices involved in criminal investigations. Just this week, the FBI asked Apple to help unlock two iPhones that investigators believe were owned by Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, who carried out a mass shooting at a Naval Air Station in Florida last month. Apple said that it had already given the FBI all of the data in its possession. Apple's response suggests it will maintain the same stance it took in 2016, when the FBI demanded that Apple provide a so-called "backdoor" into iPhones, following the December 2015 shooter incidents in San Bernardino. Apple refused, and the

CES 2020: Bosch Smart Home System to Support Apple HomeKit Later This Year

Global home appliance company Bosch has announced that its smart home products are about to gain broad support for Apple's HomeKit platform. In a ">press release titled "New Year, New Perspectives," the German company said that in combination with iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and HomePod, its Bosch Smart Home System would soon offer numerous operating options, including interaction with other HomeKit-compatible devices. The Apple Home App will soon be able to control the Bosch Smart Home System... After the voice services from Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant have been integrated during the course of 2020, the Bosch Smart Home System will also be conveniently controllable via Siri, Apple's voice assistant.The announcement was short on specifics, but it's worth mentioning that the Bosch Smart Home system is a platform for shutters, light fittings, thermostats, intelligent alarms and other accessories, so there are plenty of reasons to throw ‌HomeKit‌ support into the mix. Whether that support will extend to home appliances like fridge-freezers and ovens remains to be seen. Also this year, Bosch said it would offer an open interface for selected third-parties that would enable them to integrate Bosch Smart Home devices into their own solutions via a cloud API. Bosch said the integration would mean partner apps would be able to control the devices and services, which would ultimately allow for "a safer life and an optimized living environment." The first partner apps are expected in the spring and will be able to control Bosch Smart Home cameras, the company said.

Mophie Working on AirPower Replacement Able to Wirelessly Charge Multiple Devices Regardless of Position

Mophie parent company Zagg at CES told Bloomberg that it is developing a wireless charging mat that has capabilities that Apple attempted to implement in the now-canceled AirPower, but was unable to make work. The charging accessory will charge iPhones and other mobile devices regardless of where they are placed on the charging mat, a feature that the ‌AirPower‌ was supposed to have. Apple's canceled ‌AirPower‌ It's not clear if the charging mat that Zagg is developing will be able to charge the Apple Watch or if it will be limited to Qi-based wireless charging. Apple wanted the ‌AirPower‌ to be able to charge the ‌Apple Watch‌, iPhone, and AirPods, but had trouble implementing the overlapping charging coils that were necessary. There are multi-device chargers on the market able to charge the ‌iPhone‌, ‌AirPods‌, and ‌Apple Watch‌ at once, but each device must be placed in a specific spot on the charger. Zagg's solution would apparently work anywhere, and will be marketed under the Mophie brand. Some current charging mats from Mophie Unless the wireless charger Zagg is working on works with the ‌iPhone‌, ‌Apple Watch‌, and ‌AirPods‌, it won't quite match what the ‌AirPower‌ was supposed to do, but multi-device charging regardless of position is still a challenge even when limited to Qi-based wireless charging devices. Zagg marketing executive Brad Bell told Bloomberg that the company is pitching the charging device to retailers and gathering feedback, so it's not clear when this charging device might see a debut. There's also no word on what it might look
