It was like in a Message As shown by Bleeping Computer, several apps were found in the Apple App Store for iOS devices and in the Google Play Store for Android devices, which usually call up advertisements in the background and are therefore not visible to the user to the respective affiliate partner to bring an income.

Will the Apple WWDC take place entirely on site again in 2023?

After it became known that the US video game fair E3 will again be held entirely on site and not digitally next year, the trade press is wondering whether this will also be the case for Apple's World Wide Developers Conference in June 2023. This shows, among other things, MacRumors in one Post in which it is summarized again that WWDC20 and WWDC21 took place completely digitally, while this year's WWDC22 also had a program realized via the Internet, but the start keynote was followed by developers and press people on site in Apple Park could. Until there are official plans, i.e. until the date Apple announces in May 2023, it will become WWDC23 sure to be a lot of rumours.

Too many gift cards used: Apple account suspended

That Apple closes users' accounts because too many iTunes credit cards or Gift cards for everything were redeemed, that may have a background. Because in some fraud cases (attacks with Ransomware, scams via scam emails, etc.) the scammers demand payment in gift or credit cards - sometimes for Steam, sometimes for Apple, sometimes for Amazon, sometimes for other online shops. But now a Spanish developer had to realize that this security measure also applies to him, like the iPhone ticker shows. Since Apple support was unable to help him and was able to promptly unlock his account, including around $2.000 credit and apps collected over 10 years, he made a case publicly via Twitter.

Issues in iMovie and Final Cut Pro: Cinema mode from iOS 16 cannot be edited

If you use the so-called cinema mode on the iPhone 13 or iPhone 14 to take videos with different focus points, you can use them in current versions of iMovie and Final Cut Pro post-process or reset the focus points to improve the recording effect. At least that's possible in theory - with recordings made under iOS 16, it doesn't seem to work at the moment, as it does in another Entry of the iPhone ticker is called. Apple seems to have already confirmed the problem and refers to upcoming updates for iOS and macOS for the new functionality.

Apple Feature: How archaeologists in Pompeii work with the iPad Pro

On my weekly foray into the Apple Newsroom, I got one this week Entry discovered, which is less a press release than a use case presentation with an advertising character. Under the heading "iPad Pro revolutionizes how archaeologists preserve the history of Pompeii", it will be shown how the iPad Pro is used for a wide variety of tasks at an excavation site. In addition to a long text, there are also many photos that underline the whole thing. Check it out if this sounds interesting to you. 

Apple Music Classical: New app to be released in 2022

Since Apple's purchase of Primephonic last year, there have been repeated rumors and reports about a new app that, apart from Apple's well-known music app, is said to only contain classical music. The design of the new streaming and download offer should be based on the Primephonic predecessor, but bring additional functions. MacRumors is going at it again this week with one Entry a. Because there was one again on Twitter Notethat Apple mentions the new app in a backend code and thus apparently prepares the release. We'll have to wait and see whether it will still work until the end of 2022.

Info about iOS 16.1 - App content can be downloaded before the first start

Also at MacRumors I have one this week Entry to the third Beta version of iOS 16.1, which shows that from this version of the iPhone operating system there should be a new control for the download of app content in the settings. This should make it possible to download app content during installation, so that the app is filled with it before it is used for the first time. The function should not only be used on mobile Apple devices, but can also be activated under macOS 13 Ventura. It could be used, for example, in map, navigation, language or translator and similar apps that can load map material, language packs and the like.

NESOS - Operating system for the Nintendo Entertainment System

The Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES for short, first came out in Japan as the Family Computer, or FamiCom for short. It then came onto the market in the West as the NES via the USA. This was in the 1980s and neither market had an operating system on the device. The games could use the CPU and other processors directly from their modules. But what could a graphical operating system, like a NESOS, look like and how could it be used? You can check it out on the Inkbox YouTube channel. A short time ago, not only was the NESOS system made available for download, but also in one Video its development is shown. And with that, have a nice weekend! :)
