It wouldn't be Friday without a juicy Apple leak or rumor, and, as if on cue, photos of the display and lid of the rumored 12-inch MacBook Air supposedly leaked today. In other news, Tim Cook reportedly agreed to let Chinese officials check Apple products for security flaws, and iPhones accounted for precisely half of all phone activations in the U.S. during the last quarter.

'Leaked' Photos Reportedly Show Parts from 12-Inch MacBook Air

Just in time for weekend speculation fun, a set of photos have popped up on iFanr purporting to show the lid and display for the rumored 12-inch MacBook Air. The photos are noticeably less fuzzy than the usual leaked fare, and they helpfully show the parts stacked alongside a 13-inch MacBook Pro and a 9.7-inch iPad for comparison.

There's some doubt about the authenticity of the photos, however, in that they show that the traditional backlit Apple logo for MacBooks has been traded out for the polished metal logo common to iPads. For its part, iFanr believes Apple might have chucked the widely beloved backlit Apple in favor of making the unit ever so slightly thinner.

Also missing are the gray bezels common to most new MacBook Air models, which means that Apple might be extending the glass to the edges of the unit as seen with the MacBook Pro. That sounds lovely, but it does clash with an earlier rumor that the device would have the familiar gray bezels. Of course, there's always a good chance that Apple simply changed its mind.

Tim Cook Reportedly Agrees to Let China Search Products for Security Flaws

China's massive market means a lot to Apple—so much, in fact, that Apple CEO Tim Cook has reportedly agreed to let the country's officials inspect its products for security flaws, according to The Beijing News (via MacRumors). The officials are supposedly interested in finding "back doors" that would grant the Cupertino company (or anyone else, for that matter) access to private data stored in the units.

Lu Wei, director of China's State Internet Information Office, had expressed concerns last year that Apple might be afforded a window into Chinese state secrets through its devices. Cook assured Wei that this was not the case in a well-publicized visit, but the official apparently wanted to check out the products for himself.

The danger of such a decision is that it might reveal some secrets about how Apple designs its own software, which could in turn lead to leaked knowledge regarding how to exploit the vulnerabilities. But if it means staying in China's billion-strong market, that's a chance that Cook's apparently willing to take.

Half of All Phones Activated in Q4 2014 Were iPhones

Just in case you needed any more proof that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are wildly popular, consider the latest report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partner, which states that Apple accounted for half of all phone activations in the United States for Q4 2014 (via AppleInsider).

"Apple had virtually double the sales of Samsung, and five times that of LG. No other brand accounted for as much as 5% of US sales," says Josh Lowitz, partner and co-founder of CIRP.

Keep in mind that, at 500, the data sampling is quite small for reaching such sweeping conclusions, and that 86 percent of activations came from consumers who'd upgraded from an earlier iPhone. Still, Apple has certainly accomplished a major feat here, and impressively enough, CIRP reports that 25 percent of new iPhone users were former Samsung users and that 15 percent came from LG phones.

Got an Apple, Mac, or iOS tech question? We've got the answer. This time in Ask, we'll show you how to restrict app-update notification pop-ups to only a single user's account on your Mac.

Question

I have a user account on my iMac for myself, another for my wife, and a third for our children. Only my account has administrator privileges. Is there a way to ensure my account is the only one that receives pop-up notifications for app updates?

Answer

There's no built-in way to limit notifications to one account, but there's a workaround you can perform using AppleScript. Open up the AppleScript Editor (or simply Script Editor, as it's also called) located in Applications > Utilities and type in the script below. (For best results, input it manually; don't just copy and paste.)

 

tell application "System Preferences"

      activate

      set the current pane to pane "App Store"

 end tell


tell application "System Events"

      tell application process "System Preferences"

           tell window "App Store"

                tell checkbox "Automatically check for updates" to if value is 1 then click

           end tell

      end tell 

 end tell

 

tell application "System Preferences"

     quit 

end tell


With this script, it's easy to ensure that only an account administrator receives pop-up notifications.

Save this as an application called TurnOffAppNotifications and put it in the Users/Public folder, then add it to your account’s login items in System Preferences > Users & Groups. This turns notifications off. You can create an equivalent script with "if value is 1" replaced by "if value is 0" to turn the notifications back on; save it and name it something like TurnOnAppNotifications.

Changing App Store preferences requires admin privileges, so your wife and kids won’t be able to run the script. You have to turn the notifications on when you log in and turn them off again when you log out. This means putting the link to the script on your desktop and getting into the habit of clicking it before you logout or shut down.

Wallet Case Header
With services like ApplePay and Google Wallet slowly gaining mainstream adoption, we're well on our way to phasing out wallets completely. Almost everything you need is already on your phone, but not everything just yet, sadly. For now, most of us still need to carry a driver's license, credit cards, and membership cards around in our wallets. Even so, numerous iPhone cases are now being built with wallet functionality in mind.
