If you love Facebook, you now have extra incentive to stay within those gated walls: On Tuesday, the social network announced the launch of Save on Facebook, a new option that delivers a built-in "read later" style service for saving links, places, and even movie, TV, or music pages for quick, easy access from mobile or web. Save on Facebook is rolling out to iOS, Android, and web "over the next few days," so keep an eye out for it as you're perusing this edition of the Mac|Life Morning Report!

Apple to Manufacture Upwards of 80M iPhone 6 Models This Year

Rumors about Apple planning to assemble a record number of iPhone 6 units aren't exactly new, but when The Wall Street Journal reports it as fact, we tend to sit up and take notice. On Tuesday, the hallowed news outlet indeed appeared to confirm recent scuttlebutt that Apple is "preparing for its largest initial production run of iPhones," with suppliers lined up to manufacture "between 70 million and 80 million units combined" between now and December 30.

Needless to say, that head-splitting number includes both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models which have been rumored for some time. For comparison, last year's launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were said to produce initial orders in the 50 to 60 million range, so clearly Apple executives are anticipating an even more insatiable demand from consumers when the iPhone 6 launches this fall.

Apple Debuts New MacBook Air Commercial, "Stickers"

At the recent unveil of Surface Pro 3, Microsoft made a big deal out of how much people love the MacBook Air — and now Apple has apparently decided to jump on their own bandwagon with a new television commercial celebrating its slimmest notebook computer.

Entitled "Stickers," the spot celebrates "all the many ways people love the MacBook Air" by decorating them with decals ranging from iconic characters such as Peanuts, Pac-Man, Wonder Woman, Catwoman, and Mickey Mouse to more traditional markings like sunglasses, hats, and headphones — including the familiar Beats logo, which is now part of the Apple family.

Featuring music from artist and producer Hudson Mohawke, "Stickers" ends with the tagline, "The notebook people love," and with good reason — MacBook Air is also the least expensive notebook, starting at a mere $899.

 

You Can Already Preorder an iPhone 6 in China

Who cares if Apple has yet to even confirm the existence of an iPhone 6? A separate report from The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday claims China's Alibaba online marketplace Taobao is already littered with "dozens of sellers" already accepting preorders for the unannounced device, requiring deposits of as little as $80 or as much as $1288 to save a virtual spot in line. We wouldn't be breaking those credit cards out of the ice quite yet, however...

Apple today released the latest developer build of iOS 8, and while it's full of little tweaks and tips, it doesn't have any of the significant additions we've been seeing in previous releases. This new focus on polishing means that the Cupertino company's likely in the final stages of getting the operating system ready for release sometime this fall.

The most significant new addition is a "Tips" app that tells you about little iOS 8 tricks and shortcuts. Included in the app, too, are simple directions for turning key features on or off.

If you'd like to get a head start of learning the tricks in the app, you can head over and look at the accompanying web page Apple released today as well and test out the voting feature. There's currently only entries for eight or so new features in iOS 8, but many more are expected to be added in the coming weeks.

Cult of Mac has a good rundown of all the other tweaks included in the release, such as a new option for bolded text throughout the iOS interface, Siri's new live talk-to-text feature for Messages, and blurred lines for the interface in the Control Center.

Numerous other smaller tweaks made their way in as well, such as customized swipe gestures for the Mail app, new icons, and rearranged menu options.

There's not much in the way of breaking news about Apple TV from Apple itself, but Netflix today at last updated its channel for the diminutive entertainment device to support the "Up Next" or "Post Play" feature, which allows easy access to the next episode in a television series. You might recognize a form of the feature from existing versions of Netflix on iOS, gaming consoles, and the web itself, but only now has it come to Apple's set-top box.

It's a small convenience, but it makes a significant difference when you're enjoying a marathon of a show for a party or simply a leisurely Saturday afternoon. Under the previous design, you'd have to interrupt the fun and go back a couple of clicks before you could access the menu and select the new episode; now you'll see an option to "Play Next Episode" once the show you were watching ends. Click it and enjoy.

It's still not quite as simple as what you'll find on other devices, where the app automatically transitions to the next episode without any interaction. In those cases, all you'd have to wait for is a short countdown. With the app on Apple TV, however, you'll still have to perform that one little step. It's not entirely clear why Netflix insists on hanging on to this extra step, but you should be able to manage just fine.

Every Monday we show you how to do something quick and cool using built-in OS X utilities such as Terminal, Apple’s command line application. These easy hacks can make life better and simpler, and don’t require any knowledge of coding — all you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!

In the past, we showed you how to use the text shortcuts in Terminal to move the text cursor between the beginning of the text line, the end of the text line, and how to remove characters in between. However, as we recently discovered, this same keyboard technique also works in some other places system-wide. Continue reading and we'll show you how to use these text shortcuts in Safari and other places.

When entering text into a text field in Safari, you may have wanted to use a similar shortcut to those available in the Terminal when entering text. Here are the shortcuts that work the same in the Terminal and in Safari for moving the text cursor around in a text field:

Control + K

This is a really handy feature that allows you to place the cursor in the middle of text, and remove all of the characters to the right of the text cursor.

Control + A

If you wish to move the cursor for the text entry to the beginning of the text field (similar to pressing the "Home" button on other keyboards).

Control + E

Moves the cursor for the text entry to the end of the line, allowing you to enter text after the last bit of text on the current line that you're editing.

Shift + Option + Command + V

Sometimes whenever you copy text from Safari and paste it into a document, or vice versa, the text takes on a new format that you perhaps don't want visible in the document. Using this keyboard shortcut will make the text being pasted match the style of the place where you're pasting it (be it a document or another location).

Do you have another keyboard shortcut that we didn't mention that you use a lot with Safari or another text editor on your Mac? Let us and other Mac users know in the discussion below.
