In today's Apple Daily, a green iPhone 5c saves a man's life from a close-range shotgun blast. In other news, more insider rumors concerning Mac OS X 10.11 and iOS 9 have surfaced, and Apple's TV streaming service may not launch this fall owing to complications with local television stations.

iPhone 5c Saves Man from Close-Range Shotgun Blast

The iPhone 5c is sometimes frowned upon for its plastic casing, but as a 25-year-old British man recently found out, that plastic can sometimes be a lifesaver. Quite literally, actually. After a confrontation outside his Cheshire home, the unidentified man was shot in the chest at close range with a shotgun but managed to stumble back to his home to call emergency services after the phone took most of the force. The victim still sustained severe abdominal injuries, but none are reportedly life-threatening.

"Fortunately, the victim’s mobile phone took the brunt of the shot and, as a result of this, he survived," said Detective Inspector Gary McIntyre from the Cheshire Police in a statement to BusinessInsider. "This is remarkable — had that phone not been in his pocket at that time he would undoubtedly have died."

The victim had encountered a group of teenagers who had shut off the water to his apartment block, and was shot after confronting them about the issue. The person who fired the shot, 19-year-old Ryan Duggan, was found guilty of attempted murder yesterday and is set to be sentenced in July.

 

More Details About OS X 10.11 and iOS 9 Emerge from Insider Sources

We'd heard some time ago that, instead of focusing on big changes to Mac OS X and iOS as in the last couple of years, both OS X 10.11 and iOS 9 will focus on security and stability improvements for both operating systems. This was again reiterated to sources who spoke at length with 9to5 Mac.

Still, it seems we may still see a few additions. Control Center, a central feature of iOS, is said to make its way onto Mac OS X, where you'll be able to find it on the left side of the screen. Features from Music, AirPlay, and other apps will supposedly be readily available by clicking on it. There's a chance we won't even see this at this year's WWDC, though, as the feature "has been in flux during development" and Apple might thus push it back to another update.

Apple is also planning on including a security upgrade called Rootless for both systems, which will reportedly prevent even people with administrative-level access from viewing specific files. Sources who spoke with 9to5 Mac claim that Rootless will also be "a heavy blow to the jailbreak community."

 

Local TV Programming May Delay TV Streaming Service Announcement

Apple reportedly wants to include local channels with its new streaming television service, and according to sources who spoke with Re/code, that could keep the Cupertino company from launching the service until some time in the fall. Previous reports from The Wall Street Journal claimed that Apple would announce the service at this year's WWDC on June 8, but it increasingly looks as though that may not be the case.

Indeed, Apple reportedly hasn't reached any deals with broadcast TV networks at all. The problems seems to stem from the fact that most broadcasters don't actually own local station coverage, and instead host them through affiliate or franchise networks. The report points out that ABC spent two years securing the rights for showing live programming under its Watch ABC app, and even then they couldn't secure the rights for more than eight cities.

The rumors that Apple wants to host local television stations are somewhat new, as up until now, information has largely focused on channels from large networks such as ABC, CBS, Disney, and Fox. Approximately 25 channels are thought to debut at launch, and it'll cost around $30 to $40 per month.

Got an Apple, Mac, or iOS tech question? We've got the answer. This time the focus is on the Find and Spotlight functions in Mac OS X, which can be essential for locating files on your computer. But what do you do when that function just stops working? We'll show you how to get it running again.

Question

I recently moved all my content to a new Mac running OS X Yosemite, and everything is working great except that the Finder won't actually find anything! When I hit Command + F and run a search, most files aren't showing up, even ones that I can actually see and know should be there. How do I fix this?

Answer

When the Find command stops working properly, usually it means that the contents of your Mac need to be re-indexed. Fortunately, it's a pretty easy process. 


If your files aren't showing up in searches, add your hard drive to this list, then remove it.

Start by opening your System Preferences, then select Spotlight. Click on the privacy tab. Here you'll see any private locations that aren't going to be searched when you use the Find command or run a Spotlight search. Though it might seem counterintuitive, drag the icon for your hard drive(s) onto the list — or, if you'd prefer, just drag over any specific folders that you think aren't being searched. Once you've done that, click the folders or hard drives you just added, then hit the minus button to remove them from the list, which will cause their contents to be re-added to the search index. 

The reindexing process can potentially take a long time (several hours) depending on how many files you have, but once it's done, your searching capabilities should be restored.
