Rare manufacturing error leaves iPad Pro with gold Touch ID ring and silver back

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 8.16.19 PM

iPad Pro officially launched last week to the public after initially being announced back in September. The device launched in Apple’s standard trio of color choices, as well: silver, gold, and Space Gray. As with all Apple products, the Touch ID ring found on the Space Gray model is black, while the ring is gold on the gold model and silver on the silver model, just like you’d expect. At least one user, however, has received an iPad Pro with a different color combination…

A 9to5Mac reader has shared the above image and the video blow that both clearly show a silver iPad Pro featuring a gold Touch ID ring. The reader purchased his iPad Pro through AT&T with LTE and 128GB of storage. Everything else about the iPad is correct – the back is silver, the edges are silver, and the iPad Pro shown on the box is silver with a silver Touch ID ring.

When our reader contacted Apple about the problem, they told him it’s an “extremely rare” manufacturing error, but that he would need to go through AT&T to get a replacement. Likewise, AT&T also claimed it was a rare production issue and even told him that he could get a lot of money for it on eBay.

We’ve yet to see any other instances of this issue, making it all the more interesting as to how this could have happened in the first place. In the end, our reader, Nick, decided to hold onto his unique silver iPad Pro with a gold Touch ID ring. If you ask me, it’s a pretty cool “manufacturing error” for a device to feature and actually looks really nice.

Below is a video of Nick’s iPad Pro:

Thanks Nick!

‘Shot on iPhone 6’ photographers surprised with physical photo books from Apple

Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 8.49.48 PM

Apple’s Shot on iPhone ad campaign was largely deemed a huge success, with the campaign taking home the top prize at the Cannes Grand Prix festival over the summer. Separately, a photo featured in the campaign won its own Cannes Lions award. Now, Apple is rewarding those photographers who had their iPhone-shot pictures featured in the campaign.

Apple today has surprised Shot on iPhone photographers with physical photo books featuring the images featured in the campaign. Participants in the ad campaign are receiving packages with the photo book, as well as a pair of plain white gloves, presumably meant to wear while the handle the cloth photo books. The books are all white and titled “The Gallery.”

One photographer who received a book, Brendan Ó Sé, of Cork, Ireland, said the books were a complete surprise. “It was totally out of the blue,” he said. “Naturally, I looked for my own photo, but seeing those of the friends I’ve made over this campaign added to the surprise and thrill.” (via Cult of Mac).

The Shot on iPhone World Gallery showcased images from 162 users and was marketed in 73 cities in 25 countries. Images in the campaign itself were shot in 13 different countries and included videos as well. Photographs that were included in the campaign were also featured on various billboards and buildings around the world.

Google updates iOS search app to show map results, GIFs, allow review posts with photos

google-app

Google has updated its official search app for iOS to version 9.0, adding three new features.

• Add a photo or review for your favorite local places
• Get map results right in the app when you search for an address
• Tap and play animated GIFs in image search results

The app supports Siri-like spoken search queries, speaking the answer to questions. You can also get Google Now cards through the app, which aim to proactively offer you information you might want based on your location and other clues in a similar way to iOS 9’s proactive assistant feature. The company added always-on “Ok, Google” functionality in August.

Google is a free download from iTunes.

Study: You Suck at Spotting Fake Images

We all like to think we can spot a real from a fake. But a new study by researchers from the the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul suggests that, actually, we’re pretty awful at telling a real digital photo from a fake.

This is Philips’ $60 bridge to connect Hue lights to Apple’s Siri-controlled HomeKit platform

Philips-Hue-Homekit

Following confirmation from Philips that it plans to support Apple’s HomeKit platform for its popular iPhone-controlled Hue lighting system, images of a bridge device that will let existing Hue products work with Apple’s platform have leaked online (via iCulture).

Accessory makers can’t add support for Apple’s HomeKit to products with software alone, but earlier this year we detailed Apple’s specs for building HomeKit hardware bridges that will allow existing home automation products to tap into the platform. Philips appears to be planning an imminent launch of such a device as images leak online through a lighting retailer in the Netherlands that jumped the gun on an official launch.

philips-hue-bridge-voor-homekitIn the image to the right we get our first look at the small Apple TV-looking “Hue Bridge” device that will allow the current lineup of Philips Hue lights to interface with HomeKit. In exchange, Hue users that invest in the bridge will gain access to Siri voice commands for controlling lights and likely other HomeKit features for grouping devices through an update to Philips’ companion app. We recently gave you a first look at HomeKit features in the real world with our review of iHome’s new iSP5 SmartPlug

No word yet on an official launch from Philips on the Hue Bridge, but the retailer listed a sales price of 60 euros before removing the listing earlier today (pictured below).

Philips-Homekit-bridge

We’d expect Apple will talk more about HomeKit at its upcoming press event on September 9th later this month. We reported that Apple is planning to introduce a new Apple TV, which acts as a hub for remote access to the Siri-controlled HomeKit platform, alongside new iPhones and an official launch for iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan.

Apple Campus 2 photos show ground shots of Campus 2 exterior panels

Screen Shot 2015-08-06 at 4.31.44 PM

Photos shot by a 9to5Mac reader show the most recent look at Apple’s new Campus 2 headquarters from the ground level. While we’ve seen a plethora of drone and ariel videos and pictures, images from the ground have been a bit more scarce. Back in February, Apple provided us with a “sneak peek” at Campus 2, but obviously a lot has changed since then…

Today’s images show Apple’s Campus 2 as it is seen from Homestead Road in Cupertino, which runs alongside the building. In the images you can see the exterior panels for the building going up. Apple has previously said that very little of its new headquarters will be able to be seen from the street for privacy reasons, and that certainly seems to be the case in these new images.

Last month, however, it was revealed that Campus 2 will feature a visitor’s center with a rooftop observation deck, allowing people to view Apple’s new headquarters from the inside. You can view our full breakdown of Apple’s new campus construction in our ongoing timeline here. Apple also recently purchased undeveloped land in San Jose that is pre-approved for 2.8 million square feet of office space. Apple’s Campus 2 is expected to be completed in 2016.
