Apple Seeds Fourth Beta of Upcoming tvOS 13 Update to Developers
Apple today seeded fourth beta of an upcoming tvOS 13 update to developers, two weeks after seeding the third beta and more than a month after unveiling the tvOS 13 software at the Worldwide Developers Conference. Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV, the new tvOS 13 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode. tvOS 13 introduces an updated Home screen aimed at making it easier to discover new content. Apps are now able to play full-screen video previews right on the Home screen, similar to Netflix. Multi-user support is available for the first time, letting more than one profile exist on the Apple TV so each family member can have their own customized Apple TV interface with separate recommendations, music playlists, and Watch Now lists. Switching between profiles can be done with the new Control Center, which offers up profiles, the time and date, search, a Now Playing widget, AirPlay controls, and a sleep option. tvOS 13 gets the Apple TV ready for Apple Arcade, Apple's new gaming service that's coming to the Apple TV, iOS, iPadOS, and macOS later this year. Apple Arcade will offer unlimited access to more than 100 new and exclusive games, for one subscription fee. As part of the Apple Arcade preparations, Apple has implemented support for the Xbox Wireless Bluetooth Controller and the PlayStation DualShock 4 Controller, both of which can be connected to an Apple TV over Bluetooth. There are new under the sea themed screensavers created in partnership with the BBC Natural History Unit, which also created "Blue Planet." There's also a new Picture-in-Picture feature. Picture-in-Picture lets you continue to watch TV shows or movies while using a different app, adjusting settings, or otherwise navigating through the tvOS 13 operating system. tvOS 13 is available to registered developers and public beta testers at this time and will see an official public launch this fall alongside iOS 13, iPadOS, macOS Catalina, and watchOS 6.Related Roundups: Apple TV, tvOS 12, tvOS 13Buyer's Guide: Apple TV (Don't Buy)This article, "Apple Seeds Fourth Beta of Upcoming tvOS 13 Update to Developers" first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums

Microsoft has a wild hologram that translates HoloLens keynotes into Japanese
Microsoft has created a hologram that will transform someone into a digital speaker of another language. The software giant unveiled the technology during a keynote at the Microsoft Inspire partner conference this morning in Las Vegas. Microsoft recently scanned Julia White, a company executive for Azure, at a Mixed Reality capture studio to transform her into an exact hologram replica. The digital version appeared onstage to translate the keynote into Japanese. Microsoft has used its Azure AI technologies and neural text-to-speech to make this possible. It works by taking recordings of White’s voice, in order to create a personalized voice signature, to make it sound like she’s speaking Japanese. Microsoft has shown off holograms of people before, but the translation aspect is a step beyond what has been possible with HoloLens. This looks like it’s just a demonstration for now, and you’d need access to a Mixed Reality capture studio to even start to take advantage of this. Microsoft’s studios are equipped with lighting rigs and high-resolution cameras to capture a fully accurate digital hologram of someone, which isn’t something that can be done easily at home with a smartphone just yet. Still, Microsoft’s demonstration is certainly impressive and it speaks to the company’s ambitions with Azure, HoloLens, and beyond. The HoloLens 2 might be targeted at businesses for now, but Microsoft is attempting to build software and services that will scale to wherever augmented reality might end up heading.

Apple Seeds Fourth Betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS to Developers
Apple today seeded the fourth betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after releasing the third betas and more than a month after unveiling the new operating system at the Worldwide Developers Conference. Registered developers will need to download the profile for the iOS 13 and iPadOS betas from Apple's Developer Center. Beta 4, like earlier betas, can be downloaded over-the-air once the proper profile has been installed. Apple split iOS 13 and iPadOS into separate updates in 2019, one designed for iPhone and one designed for iPad. iPadOS is identical to iOS 13 in almost every way, though there are some iPad-specific features such as new multitasking capabilities. For the most part, the two operating systems share the same features. iOS 13 is a huge update with a long list of new features. Perhaps the most noticeable outward-facing change is a systemwide Dark Mode that changes the entire look of the operating system from light to dark, darkening everything from system elements to apps. Apple overhauled the Photos app, introducing a new Photos tab that curates your entire Photos library and shows you a selection of highlights organized by day, month, or year, and there are revamped Photo editing tools. For the first time, you can edit video right in the Photos app, cropping, rotating, applying filters, and adjusting lighting and color. There's a new High-Key Mono lighting effect, and for Portrait Lighting in general, intensity can be adjusted. There's a less obtrusive volume HUD, a new Find My app that combines Find My iPhone and Find My Friends and lets you track your devices even with they don't have an LTE or WiFi connection. A Sign In with Apple feature (not yet active) gives you a convenient and data safe way to sign into apps and websites, providing an alternative to Facebook and Google sign in options. Apple's even able to generate single-use randomized email addresses so you don't have to give your real info to apps and websites. Maps features a new street-level "Look Around" mode and a Collections feature for making lists of places, Reminders has been entirely overhauled to make it more functional, there's a profile option in Messages along with new Memoji and Animoji stickers, and Siri has a new voice. CarPlay in iOS 13 has been overhauled with a new look, multiple sets of AirPods (or Powerbeats Pro) can be connected to the same phone so you can share music with a friend, Siri on HomePod can detect multiple voices for multi-user support, and HomePod also supports Handoff. There are a ton of additional new features and changes coming in iOS 13, and for a full rundown of what you can expect, you should check out our iOS 13 roundup. Each new beta brings new features and changes to iOS 13, and the third beta introduced a FaceTime Attention Correction option, changes to Split View to make it more obvious which window is being typed in, a Me tab for the Find My app, and more. The beta testing period will allow Apple to work out bugs ahead of the release of iOS 13 and iPadOS, and it will let developers build iOS 13 and iPadOS features into their apps ahead of a public release coming this fall.Related Roundups: iOS 13, iPadOSThis article, "Apple Seeds Fourth Betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS to Developers" first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums

Apple Once Caught Factory Workers 'Digging a Small Tunnel in a Corner' in Attempt to Smuggle iPhone Parts
The Information's Wayne Ma has published an interesting story about the measures Apple takes to prevent leaks of unreleased products like iPhones from emerging out of factories within its Asian supply chain. After photos of the colorful iPhone 5c leaked in 2013, the report claims Apple created a "New Product Security" team to monitor security at its most sensitive suppliers in China. At one point, the team reportedly topped more than 30 people, but Apple is said to have been moving some of the work to contractors as of late. Apple recruited former U.S. military and intelligence operatives fluent in Chinese to be security managers on the team, and hired third-party auditors tasked with visiting factories on a weekly basis, the report adds. The security team is said to have uncovered workers going to extreme lengths to smuggle valuable components out of factories over the years, with some attempting to hide parts in crawl spaces, tissue boxes, shoes, belt buckles, bras, used mop water, under discarded metal shavings, and beyond. Apple once even caught factory workers "digging a small tunnel in a corner of a room behind a large piece of machinery," hoping to use it to funnel stolen components to the outside, according to the report. "People were chipping away little by little at the wall 'Shawshank Redemption' style," one person said. Over the years, Apple has tightened its security protocols even further to prevent leaks. Examples from the report: trash bags must be clear and screened for metal before they are removed from the premises, storage containers must be sealed with tamper-evident stickers, parts must have unique serial numbers that can be traced back to specific factory lines, and inventory must be counted daily. Suppliers who suffer leaks may face multi-million-dollar fines, according to the report, although Apple's primary manufacturer Foxconn is said to be excluded from this policy due to the size of its relationship with Apple. The full article at The Information is a fascinating read, with several more details about Apple's efforts to curb leaks.

J.J. Watt made fun of Andy Dalton’s nickname and created the most pointless beef
Watt said the Texans wanted to “make the Red Rifle look like a Red Ryder BB gun,” and everyone but Dalton simply groaned. J.J. Watt is undoubtedly one of the most likable players in the NFL, but even he isn’t immune to some beef. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is nicknamed the Red Rifle because of bright red hair that could get him cast as a Weasley in a Harry Potter reboot. After the Houston Texans pulled out an ugly 10-6 win over the Bengals to end their eight-game win streak in 2015, Watt said the defense’s goal was to “to come out here and make the Red Rifle look like a Red Ryder BB gun.” Yes, a Red Ryder BB Gun. Like the toy Ralphie Parker begs his mother for in A Christmas Story. I wonder how long it took him to come up with that one. Even ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters seemed perplexed by Watt’s comment. Made the Red Rifle look like a Red Rider BB Gun— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) November 17, 2015 It was a bad joke. As somebody who is an avid participant in bad jokes and great puns, there’s no denying that. But Dalton wasn’t pleased. The Red Rifle acted offended by Watt’s postgame comments, saying that it affected the “integrity of the game” — which seems a little dramatic to me. “I have a lot of respect for him,” Dalton said during his own postgame press conference. “He’s a really good player. There’s a lot of kids and lot of people that look up to him, and for him to make comments like that, he’s just showing that that’s acceptable to do that kind of stuff, to say that kind of stuff. “It’s disappointing for one of the best players in this league to come out and say something like that. That’s all I’m going to say about that. I think J.J.’s a good player. But for him to be one of the best in this league and to show that integrity, it shows what he’s about, which is disappointing.” Here's Dalton commenting on JJ Watt's "making Red rifle into Red rider BB gun" comments. #Texans #Bengals #NFL— Adam Wexler (@KPRC2AdamW) November 17, 2015 Dalton obviously took the comment to heart. But to be fair, Watt wasn’t totally wrong in his brief analysis of Dalton and Cincinnati’s offense that evening. The Bengals entered the game undefeated and had a pretty great offense that season, but you wouldn’t know it from watching them face Watt and the Houston defense. The Texans limited Dalton to just 197 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. Watt also sacked Dalton. The two would go on to insist that they weren’t feuding and Dalton hadn’t even seen Watt’s interview when he initially responded, but that doesn’t change the fact he overreacted to what was a playful and harmless jab. It was a dumb, cheesy joke that made me chuckle when it happened and still makes me chuckle four years later. It’s no doubt one of the dumbest NFL “beefs” ever — and I would love if we got more of them.
