Thunderbolt Displays in limited supply at Apple Stores ahead of WWDC

A new report claims that units of Apple’s Thunderbolt Display are either in short supply or not available at all in a number the company’s retail stores.

MacRumors reports:

A spot check of Apple Stores in the U.S., for example, reveals that the Thunderbolt Display is available on a ship-to-store basis only at all or select locations in Albany, Buffalo, Columbus, Detroit, Indianapolis, Memphis, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, San Antonio, San Diego, Syracuse, and many other mid-sized cities and their surrounding areas.

This lack of supply for the display units could just be a shipping aberration, but it could also signal that Apple is getting rid of its inventory ahead of a new hardware refresh for WWDC 2016. Given the fact that the Thunderbolt Display is now five years old, however, a refresh wouldn’t be totally out of the question — particularly if it packs the same 5K resolution as the latest iMac.

If Apple does have a refresh up its sleeve, what…

Leaked photos further hint at upcoming MacBook Pro with OLED touch bar

A new set of photos has emerged, showing off what is alleged to be the keyboard from an upcoming refreshed MacBook Pro, giving us a closer look at where the rumored OLED touchpad may be located. Reported by Cult of Mac, the images show an empty space above the keyboard where the function keys would normally reside. According to recent murmurings, that space will be used to house an OLED touch bar, replacing the physical function keys on the next MacBook Pro.

Further images of the sides of the chassis show what appear to be four USB Type-C ports, but no MagSafe or SD Card slot. If these are indeed the real deal, this suggests that Apple may turn to USB Type-C to power the next McBook Pro. Thin speaker grills can also be spotted on either side of the keyboard, along with what looks to be a headphone jack as well.

While the images do line up with some of what has been rumored recently, the next MacBook Pro has also been said to sport a Touch ID sensor.

In any case, as with all ima…

Periscope combats trolls with new comment moderation tool

Live streaming app Periscope is looking to take on internet trolls by placing moderation in the hands of the community. The team behind the Twitter-backed app unveiled new comment moderation tools that make it easier for those watching a stream to crack down on unwanted or abusive comments.

The system works by allowing viewers to report comments, at which point a group of viewers will be randomly selected to vote on whether the comment qualifies as spam or abuse. The result will be shown to those who voted, and if the majority voted for spam or abuse, the commenter will be notified that their chat has been disabled temporarily. Further offenses will result in the viewer losing the ability to comment for the remainder of the broadcast.

From Periscope:

We’ve designed this system to be very lightweight — the entire process above should last just a matter of seconds. That said, if people don’t want to participate, broadcasters can elect to not have their broadcasts moderated…

Jawbone says it has no plans to exit the fitness wearables business

Jawbone has issued a statement claiming that recent reports stating it is exiting its fitness wearable business are ”false”.

Late on Friday, TechInsider claimed that Jawbone was stopping production of its UP fitness devices and selling off its remaining inventory to a third party. In a statement sent to Engadget, Jawbone said:

Speculation that Jawbone is exiting the wearables business or going out of business altogether is false. This speculation appears to emanate from wrongful insinuations made in a blog post in which the reporter has since posted a ”Correction.” Unfortunately, other media picked it up before the reporter posted a correction and spread this false information. Jawbone remains wholly committed to innovating in and building great wearables products. The company has never been more excited about its pipeline of technology and products and looks forward to sharing them when ready. We manage our inventory positions according to internal business processes, and strat…

New image purports to show off iPhone 7 rear casing

A photograph of the supposed rear casing of the iPhone 7 has surfaced. The image is said to be for the 4.7-inch rose gold phone, and shows changes to the antenna lines compared to previous models, along with space for a single-lens camera, microphone, and flash.

The photo popped up on Chinese site IT Home (via AppleInsider). Note that the piece seems to be lacking the Apple logo or any other identifying marks:

Whether or not this is an actual iPhone shell, it lines up with previous reports about the upcoming smartphone. The 4.7-inch phone will reportedly feature a single-lens camera, while its big brother is said to be getting a dual-lens setup. The smaller iPhone 7 has been rumored to feature optical image stabilization (OIS), something that has previously only been available on the larger models.

Apple TV App Store will no longer show apps that you’ve already installed

Apple has rolled out a change to the Apple TV App Store that will make it easier to find new apps. A number of areas of the store will no longer display apps that you already have installed. While this change is most notable in the top app charts, we’ve also observed it on the App Store’s front page.

As noted by 9to5Mac, you can try this for yourself by downloading any app from the store, then force quitting the store app, and reloading it. If you downloaded an app from the top charts, you should notice that it has been replaced on the charts with the app that was directly behind it in the rankings.

This is a nice little change that could help Apple TV owners explore apps that they might not have otherwise seen. No word yet on if this change will come to the App Stores on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
