Apple has to get over its privacy hang-ups and...

Eric Jackson, CNBC:

Apple announced recently that it had hired two big Sony TV executives to head up Apple’s original video strategy. It’s the strongest signal yet that Apple has grand plans to offer its own slate of original video content to compete with the likes of Netflix, Amazon and HBO.

Yet as Apple brings more high-quality content to its users, it’s likely to highlight a growing dilemma: Is it going to start offering better services to users with less privacy, or continue offering inferior services with strong privacy?

The title is provocative and, I think, needlessly so. I believe Apple is protecting our privacy, sees that as a fundamental principal. But Eric does make some interesting points, worth reading:

On Ben Thompson’s Exponent podcast from two weeks back — “Fruitful Clapping” — he discusses how Siri stops using your utterances/voice queries after 6 months. That’s problematic to improve Siri’s algorithm. You can’t compare utterances today...

June 29, 2007: Waiting at the San Francisco and...

Ten years ago today, folks like our own Lee Hutchinson waited (in line or online) for the first iPhone's formal release. We've been examining the product's impact all week as it turns 10, and today we couldn't help but resurface our version of those infamous "look at that line, tho" stories from a decade ago. These pieces originally ran on June 29, 2007.

CINCINNATI, Ohio—Everyone else is covering the iPhone line in budding metropoli (is that a word?) euch as New York City, San Francisco, and Chicago. I hear there were 50+ people in line for the iPhone at the Michigan Avenue Apple Store in downtown Chicago as of 5am. Well, we thought we'd do something different (OK, maybe we had to because we were going to that darn...

iPad Pro plus Mac is a whole greater than the sum of...

Carolina Milanesi, Tech.Pinions:

If you insist on looking at iOS 11+iPad Pro=PC you might miss the opportunity for this combo to live up to its full potential. I know for many PCs and Macs are synonymous of work and productivity, therefore my suggestion to start looking at the iPad Pro differently is missed on them. Yet, I promise you, there is a difference between wanting to replicate what you have been doing on a PC and wanting to understand if the iPad Pro can fit your workflow or even if it could help your workflow change to better fit your needs.

A lot of ink has been spilled on the topic of making the iPad Pro your main computer, replacing your Mac or PC. But Carolina makes the point that the iPad Pro, combined with iOS 11 (and that’s important), has now evolved into a device with distinct advantages, depending on your workflow.

Drag and drop is a good example:

This is possibly the best example of a feature that despite sharing the same name on the...

Apple adds to its hand based gesture patents

Patently Apple:

Last week Patently Apple posted a report titled “Apple invents a 3D Depth Mapping Camera for Hand Gesturing Interfaces for Future Macs & Smartglasses.” It’s a recurring theme (one, two and three) from Apple’s PrimeSense team from Israel. Today another such patent filing has surfaced titled “Gesture based User Interface,” based on hand gestures.

There’s more detail in the post and, of course, in the patents themselves. But in a nutshell, 3D mapping cameras and a host of hand gestures are likely in Apple’s future, along with tracking software for your Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Glasses.

Tumblr’s unclear future

Brian Feldman, New York Magazine:

The future of Tumblr is still an open question. The site is enormously popular among the coveted youth crowd — that’s partly why then-CEO Marissa Mayer paid $1 billion for the property in 2013 — but despite a user base near the size of Instagram’s, Tumblr never quite figured out how to make money at the level Facebook has led managers and shareholders to expect.

And:

For a long time, its founder and CEO David Karp was publicly against the idea of inserting ads into users’ timelines. (Other experiments in monetization, like premium options, never caught on: It’s tough to generate revenue when your most active user base is too young to have a steady income.) Even once the timeline became open to advertising, it was tough to find clients willing to brave the sometimes-porny waters of the Tumblr Dashboard.

And:

It is rare, but not at all unprecedented, for a site to reach Tumblr’s size, prominence, and level of...

There have been 15 different iPhones, from the first one that went on sale on this day back in 2007 to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus last year.

Between 2010 and 2015, Apple followed a consistent ‘tick-tock’ pattern: a new design one year, and new internals plus additional features the following year. For example, the iPhone 4 – a radical new design at the time – was released in 2010, while the following year saw the iPhone 4s. The 4s offered some worthwhile hardware upgrades (including an 8MP camera capable of 1080p video) along with Siri …

Apple granted another patent for a gesture-based...

Apple has been granted another patent (number 20170185161) for a “gesture-based user interface” that hints at gesture controls for Macs, Apple TVs and home appliances. The interface interface includes a movement monitor configured to monitor a user's hand and to provide a signal based on movements of the hand. 

A processor is configured to provide at least one interface state in which a cursor is confined to movement within a single dimension region responsive to the signal from the movement monitor, and to actuate different commands responsive to the signal from the movement monitor and the location of the cursor in the single dimension region.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that systems based on identifying hand gestures allow a wide range of inputs and can be used, for example, for text entry and for three dimensional control of animation in real time, such as in a virtual reality program running on a computer.

Apple says that hand gestures may also be...

10 Years Ago Today, the Original iPhone Officially...

Exactly 10 years ago today, on June 29, 2007, the original iPhone went on sale, six months after Steve Jobs stood onstage at Macworld Expo 2007 in San Francisco and told the world Apple was reinventing the phone, revolutionizing an entire industry like it had done with the Macintosh in 1984 and the iPod in 2001.

Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos.

The iPhone, with its 3.5-inch display, lack of a physical keyboard, Apple-designed touch-based user interface, and multi-touch support, was unique among phones of that era, and as Jobs promised, it changed everything. The product that some speculated would fail miserably shaped the smartphone industry and made Apple one of...

Next-gen iPhone rumored to include faster 10W...

This could be nifty.

On Wednesday, Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis stated in a research note said the so-called “iPhone 8” will come bundled with a 10W power adapter with a USB-C connector and an integrated USB-C Power Delivery chip.

The Power Delivery chip, which is rumored to be incorporated into both the next-gen iPhone as well as its 10W power adapter, will be the same CYPD2104 chip found in Apple’s new 10.5-inch iPad Pro and is thought to offer faster device charging functionality.

The statement reads as follows, with minor edits for clarity:

We believe that in the iPhone 8, Apple likely includes Cypress Semiconductor’s USB-C Power Delivery chip in the phone and an additional chip within the power brick in box (likely a new 10W, which would use a more integrated solution with Cypress Power Delivery).

It’s thought that the next-gen iPhone would be capable of fast charging via a Lightning to USB-C cable cable connected to the new 10W power...

Dummy video offers detailed look at purported next-...

This might be the closest approximation of the next-gen iPhone.

Following scores of renderings, dummy models, and design leaks, the cool cats at OnLeaks and Tiger Mobiles have teamed up to present an iPhone 8 dummy model with an edge-to-edge display, a top bar that will accommodate the front-facing camera and sensors, a vertical dual-lens rear camera, and a glossy black chassis made from glass with a matching and indistinguishable steel band around the edges.

The dummy model is similar to that featured in previous leaks, but is closer to what the rumor mill and leaked design drawings have indicated. As such, the next-gen iPhone is thought to incorporate a slim, almost bezel-free design with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor built into the display of the device.

The handset purportedly measures 71mm wide, 144mm long, and 7.5mm thick, which matches up with previous size estimates we’ve seen leaked. At present, the iPhone 7 measures in at 67.1mm wide, 138.3mm long...

It can automatically fill in information from any contact in Contacts. It can also generate a secure password when you need to create one. Safari highlights autofilled fields in yellow.

One big advantage of doing this: if you set up iCloud Keychain on your Mac and other devices, Safari automatically fills in saved user names, passwords, and credit card info on all those devices. This is a great time-saving features.

To fill in your credit card info, you can choose from a list of your stored credit cards. You can add or remove stored credit cards. Safari can autofill your account name, account number, and expiration date. For security, Safari doesn’t store the credit card security code. You must enter it manually each time you use the card on a website.

IonSlim 5K is a skinny, powerful portable battery

Apple once got a lot of (deserved) flack for an iMac ad that said, “you can’t be too thin or too powerful.” But thin is in when it comes to Moshi’s IonSlim 5K, the newest portable battery in the company’s line. 

Described as “ultra-thin,” it boasts both a USB-C and USB-A port for universal compatibility. Moshi says it’s the thinnest 5K battery on the market. I haven’t verified that, but it does easily fit in a pocket (it’s (8.5mm thin and weighs 5.04 ounces). 

That said, the company did sacrifice integrated cables for its slim size. However, it comes with a reversible USB-C to USB-A cable that can be used to charge both a USB-C phone as well as IonSlim itself. 

That’s part of the conundrum. If you're an iPhone user, you’ll need a Lightning cord. Once you supply that, you can fully re-charge an iPhone 7 Plus (like mine) in just over two hours. Only one port can be used at...

The Day One Premium service costs $50 per year and allows users to create unlimited journals, with the promise of additional forthcoming features like Audio Entries, Writing Prompts, and Guided Journaling, as well as a 25 percent discount on book orders.

Subscription-based apps tend to divide the user community, but adoption of the model has increased over recent months. Apple incentivized developers to sell their apps for a recurring fee instead of a one-time cost when it made changes to its App Store subscription policies last year. Usually, Apple takes 30 percent of app revenue, but...

Though simple to use, it offers powerful vector drawing and text tools like perfect Boolean operations, symbols, and powerful rulers, guides, and grids.

Apple Daily Report for June 28, 2017

The AWT News Update is on hiatus today while my compadre, Steve, deals with some family issues. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

Honda has announced support for Apple’s CarPlay for the the Fit hatchback line via 2018 models. They roll out next month. Both CarPlay and Android Auto will be available on Sport, EX, and EX-L trims of the car.

Apple has released the fifth developer betas of iOS 10.3.3 and macOS 10.12.6. Developers can download the beta through the Apple Developer Center or the Software Update mechanism in the App Store.

New Dummy Video Gives Yet Another Look at...

We've seen countless renderings, dummy models, and design leaks that give us a decent idea of what we can expect the "iPhone 8" to look like, but OnLeaks and Tiger Mobiles have teamed up on a new video that perhaps gives us the clearest look yet at the iPhone 8's design based on current rumors.

The video features an iPhone 8 dummy model with an edge-to-edge display, a top bar that will accommodate the front-facing camera and sensors, a vertical dual-lens rear camera, and a glossy black chassis made from glass with a matching and indistinguishable steel band around the edges.

This new dummy model is similar to previous dummy models that we've seen, and it is in line with rumors and design drawings that have suggested the iPhone 8 will feature a slim, almost bezel-free design with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor built into the display of the device.

It measures in at 71mm wide,...

This is a second screen for your iPhone, as well as a protective case to keep you from breaking it.

Verto Analytics told MacRumors the survey is based on 6,000 current Windows PC owners age 18 and older in the United States.

Of the respondents, those with an average annual income of $150,000 or more showed the highest likelihood of switching to a Mac.

By comparison, the research firm said at least 98 percent of current Mac owners surveyed intend to stick with Mac as their next computer. In other words, only 2 percent of current Mac users surveyed are planning to switch to another computer brand, be it running Windows or another operating system.

New Charging Sound Discovered in iOS 11, Perhaps for...

Buried in iOS 11, there seems to be a new sound file that could potentially be implemented when the rumored "iPhone 8" is released with inductive wireless charging capabilities. Highlighted on YouTube, the sound file is called "engage_power.caf," and it is distinct from the existing "connect_power.caf" sound file that's used whenever an iPhone is connected to a Lightning cable.

In the video below, the unused charging sound is compared to the existing charging sound in iOS 11. The new audio file provides a longer, more distinct sound that could perhaps be used to assure iPhone users that their devices are properly charging should the iPhone 8 indeed include an inductive-based wireless charging function as has been rumored.

While both the name of the file and the sound seem to indicate that it is related to some kind of charging purpose, there's no way to confirm why the sound has been added, so this is all pure speculation at this point.

In fact, there are...

‘Your’ vs. ‘My’

Tom Warren’s review for The Verge of the new iPad Pro and iOS 11 beta is headlined “iOS 11 on an iPad Pro Still Won’t Replace Your Laptop”. Exactly in line with my piece yesterday, that “your” should be a “my”.

Warren has some on-point criticism about the finickiness of iOS 11’s drag-from-the-dock behavior for setting up multiple on-screen apps on the iPad — his review is worth reading for that segment alone. But then he adds:

Sure, you can ignore these gestures if you want, just like
thousands of Windows and Mac users ignore keyboard shortcuts they
don’t know about. The problem Apple faces here is that it’s trying
to convince everyone that a touch interface is just as productive
as using a keyboard and mouse.

Apple Seeds Fifth Beta of iOS 10.3.3 to Developers

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming iOS 10.3.3 update to developers, one week after seeding the fourth beta and over a month after the release of iOS 10.3.2, which was a minor bug fix update.

Registered developers can download the fifth iOS 10.3.3 beta from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air with the proper configuration profile installed.

There were no significant features or notable bug fixes found in the first four iOS 10.3.3 betas, suggesting iOS 10.3.3 is an update that's minor in scale, focusing primarily on security updates and bug fixes.

iOS 10.3.3 will likely be one of the last updates to the iOS 10 operating system as Apple shifts development to iOS 11. The first beta of iOS 11 was released to developers on June 5 following Apple's Worldwide Developers...

In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis says the upcoming "iPhone 8" (shown in a fanciful mock-up) will be bundled with a 10W power adapter with a USB-C connector and an integrated USB-C Power Delivery chip. 

He said the USB-C Power Delivery chips built into both the Apple smartphone and 10W power adapter will be supplied by Cypress Semiconductor. The analyst thinks it'll be the same CYPD2104 chip used in the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. 

Apple will probably include a Lightning to USB-C cable in the box if this happens instead of the traditional Lightning to USB cable, notes MacRumors. Apple could also opt to include a female USB-C to male USB-A adapter in the box.

Facebook defines a monthly active user as a registered Facebook user who logged in and visited Facebook through its website or a mobile device, or used its Messenger app, in the past 30 days.

That is just an incredible amount of people using the service. Even though I haven’t posted on Facebook in a year or so, I still do login, so I guess I’m one of those active users.

VR Apple Maps in iOS 11

Apple’s going big on augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR) with iOS 11, and it appears those plans include the Apple Maps app. It was discovered this week that Maps locations which currently support “Flyover Tours” will now have a VR mode called just “Flyover” (minus the Tours). When accessed, the user sees the traditional Flyover view, but instead of the predefined tour video, the view responds to the user’s movement and the position of the iPhone. While currently providing a VR view, it appears that future plans call for AR too, as you’ll get a warning while using the app if there isn’t enough light for the camera. Check it out if you’re running the iOS 11 Beta.

Carbon Copy Cloner backups are better than ordinary backups. Suppose the unthinkable happens while you're under deadline to finish a project: your Mac is unresponsive and all you hear is an ominous, repetitive clicking noise coming from its hard drive.

With Carbon Copy Cloner, your data and the operating system's data are all preserved on a bootable volume, ready for production at a moment's notice. When disaster strikes, simply boot from your backup and get back to using your Mac. At your convenience, replace the failed hard drive and then let CCC restore the OS, your data and your settings directly from the backup in one easy step.

CalDigit’s TS3 is a Thunderbolt 3-enabled dock in a very compact form factor. The dock omits the flat landscape design that has been the hallmark of most Thunderbolt 3 docks thus far, and instead comes with a compact design that can be placed on a desk vertically or horizontally.

Most notably, the CalDigit TS3 affords full-speed 15-inch MacBook Pro charging thanks to its 85W of power delivery. This is a feature that many of the previous Thunderbolt 3 docks, including CalDigit’s own TS3 Lite, weren’t capable of.

Yet, as someone who just recently traded a 2016 MacBook Pro for a Thunderbolt 3-enabled 2017 iMac, I was also anxious to see how the dock would integrate with my desktop setup. Have a look at our hands-on video walkthrough inside for the details....

A touch of Cocoa: Inside the original iPhone SDK

Enlarge / Web apps, declared Steve Jobs. All the original iPhone needs is Web apps! (credit: Jacqui Cheng)

When 2016 was over, Apple announced that its app store business generated well over $28 billion in sales that year. While that includes sales of software for its desktop operating system, it does not include the vast quantity of applications that are given away for free (many of which enable some sort of transaction when run). By any measure, the app store is big business, and an app-store-like ecosystem has now been part of any mobile OS for years.

One of the striking things about this is that, if you believe Steve Jobs, none of this was ever supposed to be. When...

Last November, a man opened fire inside the Crossgates Mall in Albany, NY. Now that the suspect has been convicted, police this week released surveillance footage from inside the Apple Store located near where the incident took place. The silent surveillance video shows the panic of holiday shoppers and Apple employees as they run for cover, something of which modern Apple Store designs unfortunately provide very little.

The role will be to make sure that Siri is up to date on all the non-traditional holidays, trending cultural happenings, and events that people might ask about. Apple says the Siri Event Maven will work with the engineers and designers working on Siri “to provide strategic awareness of cultural happenings in the collective zeitgeist.”

The slow, secret death of the six-string electric....

Washington Post:

In the past decade, electric guitar sales have plummeted, from about 1.5 million sold annually to just over 1 million. The two biggest companies, Gibson and Fender, are in debt, and a third, PRS Guitars, had to cut staff and expand production of cheaper guitars. In April, Moody’s downgraded Guitar Center, the largest chain retailer, as it faces $1.6 billion in debt. And at Sweetwater.com, the online retailer, a brand-new, interest-free Fender can be had for as little as $8 a month.

And:

Guitar heroes. They arrived with the first wave of rock-and-roll. Chuck Berry duckwalking across the big screen. Scotty Moore’s reverb-soaked Gibson on Elvis’s Sun records. Link Wray, with his biker cool, blasting through “Rumble” in 1958.

And:

McCartney saw Hendrix play at the Bag O’Nails club in London in 1967. He thinks back on those days fondly and, in his sets today, picks up a left-handed Les Paul to jam through Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady.”

I’m hunched beneath an ugly orange awning that features the blue Death Star logo, getting what shade I can out of the thing as it flaps limply in a breeze hot and damp as dog's breath. Behind my back is the cool glass of a store window, on which you can still see the fading outline of recently removed “CINGULAR STORE” vinyl banners. It’s not quite 90 degrees Fahrenheit—that’s about 32 degrees Celsius for you Celsius fans—but the 90 percent humidity robs the shade of almost all of its comfort.

Apple awarded sleep tracking patent, seeks to alter...

A new patent granted to Apple on Tuesday outlines how Apple’s iOS-based devices will help monitor your sleep patterns.

Patent number 9,692,874 for “Adjusting alarms based on sleep onset latency” describes a method of automatically configuring alarms using data gathered by personal mobile devices.

In most cases, users will set alarms to wake up as needed. In cases where they don’t immediately fall asleep, Apple has referred to the disparity between intended sleep time and actual sleep time as sleep onset latency, a problem the company believes can be alleviated with modern technology.

The patent describes using devices such as accelerometers, heart rate sensors, microphones and more, alongside advanced computational algorithms to create a form of logic. The resulting system would be capable of determining a user’s sleep ritual, intent to sleep and actual sleep time.

Apple’s patent also describes using onboard sensors to help determine the user’s...

Apple considers iOS devices with orientation-based...

At some point, iOS and watchOS devices’ alarm settings may be determined by how the devices are oriented ad the environment their users are in at the time. Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,691,260) for an “electronic device with orientation-based alert adjustment.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes that many of the ever-increasing number of electronic devices include the ability to attract your attention through the use of an alert. For example, iPhones and Apple Watches contain alert devices such as vibrating motors, speakers, and/or lights. 

Because of their portable nature, many of these portable electronic devices are made as small as possible by miniaturizing the components therein. As part of this miniaturization effort, the alert devices in the electronic devices are often made as small as possible in order to conserve space. However, these miniaturized alert devices can be problematic for several reasons, according to Apple. 

First, these...

Gene Munster: AirPods will be bigger than the Apple...

Apple analyst Gene Munster, from his 5 year Apple forecast:

Over the next 10 years, we anticipate that AirPods will be bigger than the Apple Watch as the product evolves from simple wireless headphones to a wearable, augmented audio device. While both AirPods and Apple Watch should continue to grow, we see AirPods contributing about the same amount of revenue as Apple Watch by FY22.

The key is the word augmented. Currently, AirPods are simply a great pair of wireless earpods. But over time, as Siri takes on a larger, more intelligent role in the ecosystem and as Apple moves into AR, the AirPods will have a more central role, acting as a conduit to other devices via more complex gestures and audio commands, and piping augmented audio back into your ears.

Our best guess is that Apple Glasses, an AR-focused wearable, will be released mid FY20. This is based on the significant resources Apple is putting into AR, including ARKit and the recent SensoMotoric...

Verto Analytics: lots of Windows users plan to go Mac

Verto Analytics just released the findings of a new study about who is most likely to switch from a Windows laptop/desktop to a Mac.

The analytics firm conducted a poll of current Windows owners (among U.S. adults, ages 18 and above) and asked them if they planned to buy a Mac as their next computer (either laptop or desktop) in the next 6-24 months.

Vivo claimed the under-display fingerprint solution, which doesn't require a physical button for the sensor, is "the first to be demonstrated by a smartphone manufacturer". The technology enables the use of a "true full-screen display and an integrated unibody and mechanical waterproofing design", said the company.

‘Inferior to a Laptop in Almost Every Way, Unless...

Joshua Topolsky pretty much trashed the iPad Pro in a series of tweets last night:

Couple of tweets about the new iPad and iOS 11. It is inferior to
a laptop in almost every way, unless you like to draw.

If you think you can replace you laptop with this setup: you
cannot. Imagine a computer, but everything works worse than
you expect. […]

But this doesn’t COME CLOSE to replacing your laptop, even for
simple things you do, like email. AND one other thing. Apple’s
keyboard cover is a fucking atrocity. A terrible piece of
hardware. Awkward to use, poor as a cover. Okay in a pinch if you
need something LIKE a keyboard.

I agree with almost every single word in Topolsky’s thread — but I also think he’s completely wrong.

Here’s what I mean. Me, personally, I find a MacBook way better for almost every single thing I do that I consider work...

Satechi Type-C 4K HDMI Adapter

Satechi has added a pair of USB-C accessories to its lineup today, announcing a 6-foot Type-C 4K HDMI Cable ($39.99) and a more compact Type-C 4K HDMI Adapter ($34.99). Both Satechi accessories are designed to work with Macs featuring USB-C ports and external 4K displays that support 60Hz refresh rates for clear and blur-free viewing.

For those who already have an HDMI cable on hand, the Type-C 4K HDMI Adapter provides a compact footprint and features an HDMI port into which the existing cable can be plugged. It's available now in space gray, silver, gold or rose gold at both Satechi.net and Amazon.com.

Hopper Disassembler 4.2.5- - Binary disassembler,...

Hopper Disassembler is a binary disassembler, decompiler, and debugger for 32-bit and 64-bit executables. It will let you disassemble any binary you want, and provide you all the information about its content, like imported symbols, or the control flow graph! Hopper can retrieve procedural information about the disassembled code like the stack variables, and lets you name all the objects you want.

Hopper is able to transform the assembly language into a pseudo-code that is easier to understand! You can use its internal Python scripting engine to analyze binaries the way you want (this feature works only with Lion)! Starting from version 2.0, Hopper can even use GDB to debug programs!

And, last but not least, unlike all other tools of its kind, Hopper is perfectly integrated into the OS X environment.



Version 4.2.5-:

  • You can move the edges of the CFG, and add/remove control points, using the Cmd key,

Plenty of musicians use iPads during their performances and some even use them to help enhance their shows, too. But iPads as all of the musical instruments? That’s what one band is doing, and it’s pretty amazing. They’re playing GarageBand instruments in real time and capturing their performance with SoundTap. It’s part of of a performance at the International Society for Technology in Education in Austin. The clip is short because it’s on Instagram, but it’s also long enough to see just how cool a full iPad band can sound.

Why I’m still surprised the iPhone didn’t die

ZDNet:

What surprises me isn’t how popular the iPhone is now, but that it survived the first couple of years to become the influential cash-generating machine that it has become.

I’m just going to come out and say it — the original iPhone was junk. I know, that’s a scandalous thing to say, but to say otherwise is to do a disservice to the memories of the awesome handsets of the time. Call quality was terrible, it didn’t support multimedia messaging, and data speeds were slow even for 2007 because Apple chose not to support 3G.

I would usually say pieces like this are revisionism but the author, Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, is someone whose writing I know and like and, upon reading it, you remember just how limited the original iPhone was. But his reasonings for why it eventually succeeded are

He/she will also “transform the way people keep up with their favorite sports and work with the people who created the intelligent assistant that helps millions of people get things done — just by asking” by joining the Siri team.

In a blog post, venture capitalist Gene Munster says iPhone growth will peak in fiscal year 2019, then slowly decline as “Apple Glasses” emerge. He thinks those glasses, an AR-focused wearable, will be released mid-fiscal year 2020. 

“We believe Apple see’s the AR future as a combination of the iPhone and some form of a wearable,” Munster writes. “With an average sale price of $1,300 we expect initial demand to be limited at just over 3m units compared to 242m iPhones that year.

He also forecasts that Apple’s AirPods will be "bigger than the Apple Watch" over the next decade as the product evolves from simple wireless headphones to a wearable, augmented audio device. 

“While both AirPods and Apple Watch should continue to grow, we see AirPods contributing about the same amount of revenue as Apple Watch by FY22. We expect the AirPods ASP to increase from $159...

Wide Open West (WOW!) now supports Apple’s single sign-on feature for iPhones, iPads, and the Apple TV. It’s the ninth largest cable TV provider in the U.S. The company also offers landline telephone and broadband Internet services.

With single sign-on, users only have to sign in once on Apple TV to enjoy immediate access to their favorite video channels that are included as part of their pay-TV subscription. Once a user is signed into one network app, any other app on Apple TV from participating pay-TV providers will automatically log the user into all other supported apps requiring authentication. 

During the single sign-on process, customers can view a page of all the authenticated apps that a pay-TV provider offers to more easily discover, download and enjoy all of their favorite video channels. Any network-TV app can take advantage of this technology to enable single sign-on and simplify the process for their...
