Every Monday we show you how to do something quick and cool with Mac OS X. Sometimes it's a tutorial on a lesser-known feature, other times it's a trick that uses built-in functionality such as Terminal — either way, these simple tips can make life better and easier, and they don’t require any special knowledge. All you need to do is follow the instructions!

By default, the Mac comes with a built-in utility that lets anyone reset the password on your user account. This is done in case you lose access to your OS X account, but it can become a vulnerability if your Mac gets into the wrong hands. In this article, we'll show you how easy it can be to add a hardware password to your Mac to prevent unwanted access like this. Continue reading to learn how it's done.



To add a hardware password to your Mac (which will be required whenever you access another bootable partition or drive on your Mac, including the recovery partition), perform these steps:

  • Boot into the recovery partition by holding down Command + R when booting up your Mac.
  • When prompted, select your language.
  • Select Utilities > Firmware Password Utility.
  • Select "Turn on Firmware Password..."
  • You'll see a dialog that lets you add a password, then confirm the password.
  • Click "Set Password."

After doing this, you'll be required to specify this password before booting into a disk, or booting into the recovery partition on your Mac.

You can secure your OS X files and account information even further by enabling File Vault from within your OS X user account. To learn more about enabling this feature, follow this guide.

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.
