You Could See More Political Campaign Emails In Your Gmail Inbox

The MacObserver - Fri, 08/12/2022 - 23:40

A recent proposal Google presented to the U.S. Federal Elections Commission could mean more political emails in your Gmail inbox. The agency recently voted overwhelmingly in support of the proposal, paving the way for political campaign emails to bypass the search giant’s spam filters.

As Mid-Term Elections Loom, Google Wants More Political Emails to Reach Your Gmail Inbox

In June, Google presented the proposal to the FEC. The plan enables emails from “authorized candidate committees, political party committees and leadership political action committees registered with the FEC” to skirt right past its spam filters.

This only applies as long as the emails don’t break Google’s other rules on illegal content, malware and phishing. The FEC opened the matter for comment, and comment the public did(PDF).

Against the proposal. In nearly all of the hundreds of comments filed with the commission, the public asked the FEC to deny Google’s proposal. One commenter asserted that if political campaigns couldn’t produce content of high enough quality to make it past spam filters on their own merits, “they shouldn’t get special treatment.”

Still another pleaded that the FEC “not allow Google to open up Pandora’a Box on the people by allowing campaign/political emails to bypass spam filters.” Nevertheless, the FEC voted 4-1 Thursday that Google’s proposal was perfectly legal.

Concerns About the Program Applying Only to Political Committees

During the FEC’s open meeting, commissioner Ellen Weintraub did voice concerns about the proposal. The program only applies to political committees, something she said “raises all sorts of alarm bells.” She want on to call it the “classic definition of an in-kind contribution.”

Right now, campaign emails often end up in your junk mail folder. This happens because many other users mark them as spam. Under the pilot program Google proposed, users will instead get a notification about such emails. They can then choose to either opt out of receiving the emails or allow them to bypass the spam filters.

Of course, you’d still have the option of manually marking the emails as spam, but that’s hardly the point. Unsolicited marketing email of any sort, whether it’s for a product or service or for a political cause, should be crafted and targeted better.

If I want your political campaign emails, I’ll subscribe myself. Chances are, I’ll use my iCloud account and its Hide My Email feature so I can easily turn them off if they get bothersome. It seems most of the public feels the same way, but the Federal Elections Commission appears more interested in pleasing Big Tech than voters.

Everything Rumored for Apple's September Event: iPhone 14, Apple Watch Pro and More

MacRumors - Fri, 08/12/2022 - 23:34
There's just about a month to go until Apple holds its annual September event focusing on new iPhone and Apple Watch models. We thought we'd take a quick look at everything that's rumored for Apple's September event to give MacRumors readers a rundown on what to expect when the first fall event rolls around.


iPhone 14
The iPhone 14 can probably be described more as an "‌iPhone‌ 13S" because it's not expected to get a whole lot of changes. We're expecting the same design and the same A-series chip, but camera improvements are a possibility. Note that Apple is getting rid of the 5.4-inch ‌iPhone‌ mini in the 2022 ‌iPhone‌ lineup, with the standard ‌iPhone 14‌ series to consist of a 6.1-inch ‌iPhone 14‌ and a larger 6.7-inch ‌iPhone 14‌ Max.



  • 6.1-inch ‌iPhone 14‌, and 6.7-inch ‌iPhone 14‌ Max. No mini.

  • No design changes, Face ID notch remains.

  • No ProMotion display.

  • New purple color, which joins black, white, red, and blue.

  • Improved Ultra Wide camera.

  • Upgraded front camera with wider f/1.9 aperture and autofocus capabilities.

  • A15 chip, which was previously used in the iPhone 13.

  • 6GB RAM.

  • Updated Snapdragon X65 10 Gigabit 5G modem and antenna system.

  • WiFi 6E.

  • $799 start price.


For full details on everything we've heard so far about the ‌iPhone 14‌, we have a dedicated iPhone 14 roundup.

iPhone 14 Pro


Though the ‌iPhone 14‌ is more of an ‌iPhone‌ 13S, the same isn't true for the iPhone 14 Pro models. Apple has bigger changes in store for its higher-tier and more expensive ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ and ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max models.

  • Same general flat-edged design with 6.1 and 6.7-inch size options.

  • ProMotion display technology, but with 1Hz to 120Hz upgrade that enables Always-On display technology.

  • No notch. Notch replaced with pill-shaped and hole-punch cutouts for camera and ‌Face ID‌ hardware.

  • Larger rear camera bumps and increased lens size.

  • Graphite, gold, silver, and purple color options.

  • Faster A16 chip.

  • Updated Snapdragon X65 10 Gigabit 5G modem and antenna system.

  • Vapor chamber thermal system to accommodate A16 chip and 5G modem.

  • 48-megapixel Wide lens with 21 percent larger sensor that supports higher-resolution images and 8K video recording.

  • Upgraded 7-element telephoto lens.

  • Improved Ultra Wide lens.

  • Upgraded front camera with wider f/1.9 aperture and autofocus capabilities.

  • 6GB RAM.

  • WiFi 6E.

  • Up to 2TB storage.

  • Possible price increase.


Full details on what to expect from the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ are available in our iPhone 14 Pro roundup.

Apple Watch Series 8


The Series 8 is expected to get an iterative update that largely focuses on a few new features like temperature sensing, but there are some surprises to be had as Apple is also introducing a pro version of the Apple Watch.

  • Same general design as Series 7.

  • 41 and 45mm sizes.

  • S8 chip, which basically offers the same performance as the S7.

  • Low power mode for improved battery life.

  • Temperature sensor, which can let you know if your temperature is up. May be used for fertility tracking.

  • Possible car crash detection.



Apple Watch Pro


The Apple Watch Series 8 isn't the only new Apple Watch that we're getting this year. Apple is refreshing the Apple Watch SE and introducing a new higher-end Apple Watch that could be called the "Apple Watch Pro."

  • Updated design that's an "evolution of the current rectangular shape," possibly with a flat display, but no flat edges.

  • Rugged, more durable build for extreme athletes.

  • More durable titanium alloy casing with shatter-resistant display.

  • Larger size with 2-inch diagonal screen that provides seven percent more display area.

  • 410 x 502 resolution.

  • Larger battery and longer battery life, could be as long as multiple days with new low power mode.

  • All ‌Apple Watch Series 8‌ features.

  • Could be priced at around $900 to $1,000.


AirPods Pro 2


An updated version of the AirPods Pro is on the horizon, but it's not entirely clear if the refreshed earbuds will come out alongside the new ‌iPhone‌ and Apple Watch models or if Apple will introduce them later in the year.

  • Same general design as current ‌AirPods Pro‌ with silicone ear tips and stem.

  • Improved Find My integration.

  • Charging case with speaker holes to play sounds when lost.

  • AirPods 3 acoustics for improved sound.

  • Updated H1 chip with self-adaptive noise cancellation capabilities.

  • Possible Lossless audio (ALAC) support.

  • Lightning port.


Our full AirPods Pro 2 guide has even more information about everything we've heard about the ‌AirPods Pro‌ so far.

Potential September Event Date
There's no word yet on when Apple will hold its annual September event, but given that the events almost always happen within the first two or three weeks of the month, we can make some educated guesses. September 5 is Labor Day, so that's out, and most events are on Monday or Tuesday, though Wednesday is sometimes a possibility.

Most likely target dates:

  • September 7

  • September 13

  • September 14

  • September 20

  • September 21


September 12 and 13 are the two most likely dates, and if Apple does indeed plan to hold the event on one of these days, we could get an announcement the week before.

Past event dates:

  • 2015 - September 9

  • 2016 - September 7

  • 2017 - September 12

  • 2018 - September 12

  • 2019 - September 10

  • 2020 - September 15

  • 2021 - September 14


October Event
Apple's September event isn't the only event we're going to get before the end of the year. We're also counting on an October event that will see the launch of new iPad Pro models, a new low-cost iPad a revamped Apple TV, and an Apple silicon version of the Mac Pro.

New emojis debut, Google developers pressure Apple to update modern texting tech

Apple Pulls ‘Hide My Email’ Support in Third-Party Apps from macOS Ventura Features Page

The MacObserver - Fri, 08/12/2022 - 23:07

Up until recently, Apple advertised that macOS Ventura would offer support for its Hide My Email feature in third-party apps. Folks with an iCloud+ subscription were to be able to keep their “personal email address private with Hide My Email in third-party apps.” Without any fanfare at all, Apple has removed all mention of the feature from the page.

Hide My Email Reverts to Safari and Mail Support Only, It Would Seem

Apple introduced its Hide My Email feature with iOS 15 and macOS Monterey. On many websites in Safari, you can use it to create a randomized email address when registering for an account. This can be useful if you aren’t sure of a website’s privacy practices, spam risks or who it might sell your email address to.

Adding support for third-party apps in macOS Ventura would have expanded the feature beyond Safari and Mail on the Mac. Hide My Email already works on some third-party iOS apps, and it’s not clear why Apple has decided to remove it from macOS Ventura.

It’s certainly been removed, though. Looking at a snapshot of the macOS Ventura Preview features page from Aug. 3, Apple lists the feature under a special section for iCloud+. It sat right between Home and Keyboard features.

Check that same page today, though, and the entire section is gone. The Wayback Machine, an Internet archive of web page versions, has no snapshots of the page in question after Aug. 3, so it’s not clear exactly when the Cupertino-based tech giant made the removal.

You Can Still Use Hide My Email with Third-Party Apps on macOS Ventura, Just Not As Easily

While Apple may have decided to remove the quick and easy way to use Hide My Email in third-party apps, that doesn’t make it impossible. Yes, it would have been easier to generate the randomized email address from within the app. That being said, there’s another way to do it.

From either the System Settings app or the iCloud.com website, you can generate a custom randomized email address when you need to. Then, simply plug that email address into the third-party app. It’s a bit of a clunky workaround, but it works.

Then again, the full release of macOS Ventura is still a couple of months away. Perhaps Apple will change its mind and restore its original plans of supporting it directly within third-party apps.

Hands-On With Samsung's Latest Foldable Smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip

MacRumors - Fri, 08/12/2022 - 21:46
Samsung this week launched its fourth-generation foldable devices, the $1,000 Galaxy Z Flip and the $1,800 Galaxy Z Fold. Though there's no sign of a comparable Apple foldable device on the horizon, rumors suggest prototypes are in the works, so we thought we'd take a look at Samsung's newest smartphones to see what Apple needs to measure up to when a foldable iPhone does come out.

Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos.
Samsung's early foldable devices were riddled with durability issues and hinge-related problems, but Samsung has now had several years to work out the kinks. New hinge designs and body refinements have taken care of a lot of these issues, and the fourth-generation devices look and feel more durable.


The Z Fold 4 is the bigger of Samsung's two foldable smartphones, and it folds like a book, going from a 6.2-inch display to a 7.6-inch display. The Z Flip 4 is a smaller foldable that folds vertically, top over bottom, and it has a 6.7-inch display when opened up. When closed, there's a 1.9-inch display where you can see notifications, the time, and other at-a-glance info.


Both of Samsung's foldable devices feature 120Hz OLED displays that look fantastic, and the Z Fold 4 runs a special version of Android built for foldable devices. Android L adds a dock that makes it easy to swap between apps, and there are useful multitasking capabilities.


Beyond the novelty of the folding, these two devices have your general high-end smartphone features. Multi-lens cameras, high-capacity batteries that outlast the ‌iPhone‌ battery, the latest Qualcomm chips, under display cameras, fingerprint sensors, 5G connectivity, and more. Make sure to watch our video up above to see the folding mechanism in action and to get a look at the rest of the feature set.


We've been hearing rumors about a foldable ‌iPhone‌ since 2016 when LG Display started producing foldable displays for smartphones, but so far, there have been no tangible rumors about an ‌iPhone‌ that folds as such a device remains in the prototyping stage.


Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said back in January 2021 that Apple's work on an ‌iPhone‌ with a foldable display was in the early stages, and that the company had not yet committed to releasing a foldable device. Other rumors have indicated that Apple is testing 8-inch and 9-inch foldable options, but we're still years off from a release.


Both display analyst Ross Young and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believe Apple has some kind of foldable iPhone in development with a launch planned for 2025 at the earliest. Apple often holds off on implementing new technology until the available hardware can meet the quality specifications that the Cupertino company demands, so it is no surprise to see Apple waiting for several years after the launch of foldable Android smartphones to launch its own.Tag: Samsung

Apple Removes Network Locations Feature in macOS Ventura

MacRumors - Fri, 08/12/2022 - 20:56
In addition to redesigning the System Settings app on macOS Ventura, Apple has removed the app's longstanding Network Locations feature, as noted by Jason Snell at Six Colors. The feature allowed users to quickly switch between different sets of Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and other network settings depending on their location, such as home or work.


Given that macOS Ventura is still in beta, there is always a chance that Network Locations could return at some point, but this seems unlikely given that Apple marked Tyler Loch's bug report about the feature's absence as "works as currently designed."

In a support document, Apple says the Network Locations feature could be useful in circumstances such as those listed below:- You use the same type of network (such as Ethernet) at work and at home, but the settings you use at work don't allow your Mac to automatically connect to the same type of network at home.

- Your Mac connects to more than one type of network service (such as both Wi-Fi and Ethernet) at work and at home, but at work you want your Mac to try connecting to the Ethernet network first, and at home you want your Mac to try connecting to the Wi-Fi network first. In other words, you want to set a different service order for each location.

- Your Mac isn't connecting to your network and you want to quickly reset your network settings for testing purposes, without losing your current network settings.Snell says Apple's command-line tool "networksetup" is still present in the latest macOS Ventura beta, so a third-party developer could step in and release an app to replace the Network Locations functionality removed in the System Settings app.Related Roundup: macOS Ventura

‘The Late Show’ Host Stephen Colbert Talks Apple TV+, “Joins” the Cast of ‘Severance’

The MacObserver - Fri, 08/12/2022 - 20:37

It seems everyone these days is becoming a fan of Apple TV+’s Severance, including Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show. In addition to admitting this in an interview with Ben Stiller during Wednesday’s The Late Show, Colbert also shared some “unreleased” footage of his time on the Apple TV+ psychological drama.

‘Late Show’ Host Stephen Colbert “Joins” ‘Severance’

In a tweet, The Late Show shared Stephen Colbert’s segment on the talk-show wherein the he spoke about Apple TV+. While making a nod to Apple’s numerous Emmy Award nominations this year, Colbert made sure to take a few jabs at Cupertino and the streaming service.

“When I get home from a long day of TV, there’s nothing I like more than sitting down with some TV” Colbert jokingly stated. “One of my favorite shows is Severance [. . .] a series on Apple TV+ that is, and please stay with me here, not Ted Lasso”. Colbert also cheekily stated that Cupertino now has as many award nominations as they do types of cords.

(For the record, there are plenty of uses for Thunderbolt cables.)

In addition to mentioning Severance’s 14 Emmy-Award nominations, Colbert also declared that he was once in the series. Colbert stated, “the only thing I don’t like about Severance is that I was originally going to be in it. But for some reason all my scenes were left on the cutting room floor.”

‘Severance’ Season 2

According to the “deleted scenes”, Colbert does his best to turn Lumon into Dunder Mifflin, under the pretext that Steven C. Must surely be Steve Carell in the outside world. Hilariously, Steve C. then draws the ire of John Turturro’s Irving, who becomes the main target of Steve C’s antics.

In terms of Severance, the show will see a second season, with the news previously arriving back in April. The series is no stranger to unique promotions, as Severance produced a rather realistic LinkedIn page for Lumon to help promote the show. Additionally, Severance also had an interactive experience where individuals could spend the day as a Lumon employee going through their first day. The experience took place at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Currently, there is no release date for Season 2 of Severance.

Did you watch Stephen Colbert talk about Severance and Apple? What are you watching on Apple TV+? Let us know in the comments.
