Apple hires former Spotify exec

Apple hired former Spotify VP of Content Steve Savoca in January, an Apple spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider.

He’ll be doing the same thing for Apple that he did for Spotify — heading up label relations based out of New York, focusing on relationships with smaller, independent labels, especially internationally, Business Insider has learned.

Sounds like a good choice. Clearly Spotify did well with him doing that job.

Notable apps and app updates for Feb. 2, 2017

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

Feature Request: Apple should roll its own VPN into...

When Apple released iOS 10 last September, they pushed in a small change when connecting to wireless networks. Tucked away under the Wi-Fi settings, iOS now warns users when connecting to insecure networks that it exposes a user’s network traffic. The easy answer to this is to simply not connect to public wireless networks, but that’s something that most people will just ignore. If users won’t stop connecting to insecure public networks, they could at least start using VPNs and Apple could make it easy to do that.

Apple has just patented an Apple Watch battery band

Here’s further evidence that Apple wants to develop “smart bands” for Apple Watch.

According to a recently published patent, Apple has developed a way for Apple Watch bands to incorporate a wearable battery that could charge the device on the go. These batteries could be partially embedded within a band or attach to an existing band, and they’d rely on the Apple Watch’s inductive charging technology to transfer power.

Based on the images included in the patent application, a battery band can be made of flexible material to better accomodate a design that wraps around underneath the band. It also has a charging plate, similar to the Magnetic Charging Puck but way slimmer, that can rest on the belly of the watch to charge it on contact. The charging plate comes with magnets to help align the inductive coils, as well as perforations or...

With rumors suggesting the 2017 iPhone 8 is going to introduce some of the most radical design changes we've seen to the iPhone since 2014, a number of artists have been making conceptual mockups based on current rumors floating around.

Many of the mockups imagine fanciful ideas that Apple is unlikely to implement, but they also adopt the edge-to-edge display with built-in Home button, OLED screen, wireless charging, and glass body ideas that are being bandied about, giving an interesting look at how iPhone 8 rumors are being interpreted.

The first conceptual design was created by Thadeu Brandão and has been getting a lot of attention over the last couple of days. The mockup features an iPhone with a larger edge-to-edge display, dual cameras, and a glass front and back surrounded by an aluminum frame.

“Our nation’s compassion is a part of what makes it exceptional, and we are committed to helping your administration identify approaches for thorough screening without a blanket suspension of admissions under the U.S. Refugee Admissions program,” the letter reads. “While security and vetting procedures can and should always be subject to continuous evaluation and improvement, a blanket suspension is not the right approach.”

iPhone U.S. installed base has reached 132 million

Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), has released its analysis of the results from its research on Apple for the fiscal quarter that ended Dec. 31, 2016. The research group found that the iPhone U.S. installed base reached 132 million units as of the end of 2016.

Within the installed base, the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus comprise 25 million units, or 19% of the total. The two year-old iPhone 6 and 6 Plus comprise 51 million units, or 38% of the total installed base.

“iPhone 7 and 7 Plus penetrated the U.S. market slightly stronger, at 19% of the installed base, than the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus did a year ago, but not nearly at the level the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus did two years ago,” says Josh Lowitz, CIRP partner and co-founder. “At this time last year, the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus accounted for about 17% of the US installed based of iPhones, compared to an incredible 30% for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in December 2014...

Facebook Aims to Carve Out a Spot in the Living Room


Facebook is working on a video app for set-top boxes, according to a Wednesday report. The social network wants to deliver longer-form video content -- and with it video ads -- to the living room TV, the one screen it has been unable to reach. The Facebook app soon could be available on a variety of set-top boxes, including Apple TV. The initiative reportedly began in earnest last summer, after incubating for years as a concept. News of this effort follows Facebook's recent announcement that it was refining its News Feed to favor longer-form videos, which can include mid-roll ad breaks.

My LG UltraFine Display 5K isn’t affected by...

In writing for 9to5Mac, Zac Hall reported that his LG UltraFine Display 5K became unusable if located near a router. Though I don’t doubt Zac’s results, mine have been totally different. 

Zac found that the UltraFine 5K Display, which Apple touts as a great monitor for use with the latest MacBook Pros, became unusable when positioned within 6.6-feet of a router (in his case, the latest Apple AirPort Extreme). He then found this note on a review for the LG display on Apple’s website:

Zac says that, since moving the router to another room, his UltraFine 5K Display has remained connected without issue.

However, I’ve been using an UltraFine 5K Display for weeks with it located less than two feet from an eero router. Does the monitor work properly near some routers and not others? Do some of the displays have the issue, but not others? Is this a problem with the 4K display? Whatever the problem, just be warned...

External Link: Apple Working on ARM-Based Power Nap...

Mark Gurman and Ian King have reported in Bloomberg that Apple is working on a new ARM-based chip for future Macs that would manage Power Nap functionality. Power Nap enables recent Macs to perform certain tasks even while asleep, such as checking for new email messages, syncing iCloud data, and updating software, and the rumored new chip would reduce Power Nap’s already low energy usage. This story has fueled speculation that Apple will dump Intel CPUs for ARM-based processors like those it makes for its many non-Mac devices. However, nothing in this news indicates such a major shift yet — this chip would merely supplement the core Intel processor’s capabilities, much like the ARM chip that controls the Touch Bar in the 2016 MacBook Pro.

The fees come into play if you continue to use the Roku in addition to your Comcast set-top box after the beta trial wraps. At that point, Comcast will treat the Roku device like any other “additional outlet.” That additional outlet incurs a $9.95 fee, minus the bring-your-own-device credit of $2.50 for using a Roku, instead of Comcast’s box. This is also how a secondary outlet that connects to Comcast’s network via a TiVo would be charged and credited.

Apple earlier this week reported that it sold 13.1 million iPads in the first quarter, which encompasses the holiday shopping season, down from 16.1 million in the year-ago quarter. As noted by Jason Snell at Six Colors, that's nearly half as many iPads as the 26 million that Apple sold during the same period in 2013.

Apple isn't the only tablet maker suffering from declining sales. The overall category continued to shrink by between 9% and 20% worldwide compared to the same quarter a year ago, placing pressure on Samsung and other vendors, according to the latest estimates from research firms...

Its research indicates that well over half of all iPhone owners have the iPhone 6 or later.

Within the installed base, the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus comprise 25 million units, or 19% of the total. The two year-old iPhone 6 and 6 Plus comprise 51 million units, or 38% of the total installed base.

While that’s an impressive past achievement for Apple, with its record holiday season sales a major contributor, it does mean the company is facing a tougher challenge this year …

The truth behind the MacBook Pro’s ‘terrible’...

Gordon Mah Ung, Macworld, gets to the bottom of the MacBook Pro’s disparate battery tests. Most testers got great battery life, others found it to be terrible. Why? Turns out, it’s a bug:

In looking at other battery run-down scenarios, I ran smack into a problem that’s likely at fault for many of the confusing battery life issues with the laptop, at least in macOS Sierra 10.12.2. On occasion, the laptop’s discrete GPU would just get stuck on and consume power even when it wasn’t used. Others had reported this too, but you’d really have to stumble onto it.

I was able to reproduce the issue in Safari by opening Google Maps, which would cause the laptop to switch over to the GPU for the WebGL workload. Opening additional browser tabs and then closing the Google Maps tab would, on occasion, leave the GPU consuming up to 10 watts of power while doing absolutely nothing.

Terrific job homing in on this. Nothing helps tech support more than a problem they can reliably...

As promised, Fire Emblem Heroes is beginning to roll out in the Google Play and iOS App stores. Launching in 30 countries today, the game follows the so-called freemium model, with a free initial download bolstered with in-app purchases to aid in your progress.

According to Nintendo, the game puts a touch-screen spin on the console version of Fire Emblem, letting you complete in “strategic turn-based battles streamlined for on-the-go play.” Early reviews on the Play Store, from users in the first countries that were able to download the game, were mostly positive, with players praising the graphics and gameplay, though some...

Apple drops to number two on Davis Brand Capital 25...

Davis Brand Capital, a market intelligence and customer insight firm, has released the eighth annual Davis Brand Capital 25 ranking, a global study of overall brand performance evaluating companies' abilities to successfully manage brand value, competitive performance, innovation strength, company culture and social impact. Apple dropped from the top spot to the runner-up spot.

The 2016 Davis Brand Capital 25 ranked companies again beat all public market indexes. A hypothetical stock portfolio of Davis Brand Capital 25 companies would have returned 17.4% in 2016, beating the Dow by 2.2 percentage points, the S&P 500 by 6.2 percentage points and the NASDAQ by 7.6 percentage points.

After five years atop the list, Apple (#2) lost its number one spot to Alphabet (#1), due in part to Google's increasing dominance and Apple's "slowing sales," according to Brand Davis (though, based on Apple's latest financials...

They’ll be powered by analytics and customized to further drive the airline's digital transformation, enhancing how United serves its customers.

Over the past several years, United has increasingly sought to untether its global workforce by putting the unique capabilities of iPhone and iPad in the hands of employees, according to United's vice president of operations technology Jason Birnbaum. This collaboration will further heighten that strategy, with IBM set to develop a suite of  IBM MobileFirst for iOS apps – both market ready and custom iOS apps – for the airline's growing deployment of iOS devices, he adds.

Mark Gurman and Ian King, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. is designing a new chip for future Mac laptops that would take on more of the functionality currently handled by Intel Corp. processors, according to people familiar with the matter.

The chip, which went into development last year, is similar to one already used in the latest MacBook Pro to power the keyboard’s Touch Bar feature, the people said. The updated part, internally codenamed T310, would handle some of the computer’s low-power mode functionality, they said. The people asked not to be identified talking about private product development. It’s built using ARM Holdings Plc. technology and will work alongside an Intel processor.

Future watch bands from Apple (Smart Bands?) may provide more juice for the Apple Watch. Apple has filed for a patent (20170033567) for a “charging apparatus for a wearable electronic device.” BTW, images accompanying the filing show a round Apple Watch.

According to the patent filing, a wearable power apparatus for a wearable electronic device includes one or more conductors, one or more batteries connected to the conductor, and/or an inductive coil that attaches to the wearable electronic device to inductively transmit power from the battery to the wearable electronic device, such as while the wearable electronic device is worn. 

The power apparatus may have attachment mechanisms that attach to a band coupled to the wearable electronic device. Alternatively or additionally, the power apparatus may be at least partially embedded within the band. The inductive coil may also receive power for the battery from another inductive coil.

The fourth quarter marked a return to growth for the smartwatch industry after two consecutive quarters of declining volumes. Smartwatch growth is recovering slightly due to new product launches from giant Apple and stronger seasonal demand in major developed markets like the US and UK, according to Strategy Analytics. Global smartwatch shipments grew annually from 20.8 million in full-year 2015 to a record 21.1 million in 2016, adds the research group.

Rumor: Apple to incorporate next-gen ARM-based...

This is pretty nifty.

Apple is apparently developing an ARM-based chip for its Mac products that would “take on more of the functionality” handled by Intel processors.

In development since last year, the chip, codenamed T310, is said to be similar to the chip used to power the Touch Bar in the new 2016 Macbook Pro. It’s built using ARM technology and will work with the standard Intel processor, handling “Power Nap” low-power mode functionality.

The processors are intended to offload the Mac’s low-power mode, entitled “Power Nap”, to the ARM-based chip. This function currently allows Apple’s notebooks to retrieve e-mails, install software updates, and synchronize calendar appointments with the display shut and not in use. The feature currently uses little battery life while run on the Intel chip, but the move to ARM would conserve even more power, according to one of the sources.

As of now, the 2016 MacBook Pro uses an independent ARM-based chip...

Prince may be coming to both Apple Music and Spotify.

The legendary musician, who spent a fair amount of his career fighting for artist rights and equal royalties, famously pulled his music from all streaming services but Tidal, the artist-owned, Jay Z-led app for audiophiles. But now it seems Prince’s hits are finally set to stream everywhere else, from Apple Music and Spotify to Google Play and Pandora.

The story hails from an anonymous source and according to the New York Post, Prince’s Warner Music Group records will hit streaming services outside of Tidal on Feb. 12, the night of the Grammys. This is also the evening that the award show’s organizers are expected to honor Prince with a musical tribute that night.

Such a change comes with some fanfare and signaling ahead of it, as Spotify has recently aken out purple subway ads in New York City. The ads make no reference to Prince, but his signature color was sign enough for die-hard fans, who instantly...

Others try to use the language of healing and security against people, accusing them of maintaining “safe spaces,” being too easily “triggered,” and acting like a “snowflake”—easily melted when exposed to challenging ideas.

When sharing photos with others, I often like to put a box or circle around something I want to point out. Sometimes I like to include an arrow highlighting a feature in a photo.

The stock Photos app in iOS has a great tool for drawing perfect geometric figures on your photos. With Photos I can draw a shape freehand and use it. If you are like me, the shapes I draw upon the screen are not very attractive. The software can determine what shape I was trying to draw and, at the lower part of the screen, offer two options: my original shape or what the photo app thinks I was trying to draw.

You can access the markup options by tapping on the three lines with circles located at the bottom of the photo. Ten tap on the circle with the three dots. Choose “Markup.”

At the bottom you have options for color selection. Below that you have four options: drawing a shape, lens magnification, overlaying text, and undo. In this brief tutorial I’ll focus only upon drawing a...

Apple Developing Custom ARM-Based Mac Chip That...

According to Bloomberg, Apple is designing a new chip for future Mac laptops that would take on more of the functionality currently handled by Intel processors. The chip is a variant of the T1 SoC Apple used in the latest MacBook Pro to power the keyboard's Touch Bar feature. The updated part, internally codenamed T310, is built using ARM technology and would reportedly handle some of the computer's low-power mode functionality. From the report: The development of a more advanced Apple-designed chipset for use within Mac laptops is another step in the company's long-term exploration of becoming independent of Intel for its Mac processors. Apple has used its own A-Series processors inside iPhones and iPads since 2010, and its chip business has become one of the Cupertino, California-based company's most critical long-term investments. Apple engineers are planning to offload the Mac's low-power mode, a feature marketed as "Power Nap," to the next-generation ARM-based chip. This...

I’ve said before that it’s only a matter of time until all of Apple’s hardware devices will be powered by ARM-based processors, including the Mac. A new Bloomberg report, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter,” says Apple is designing a new chip for future Mac laptops that would take on more of the functionality currently handled by Intel processors.

I believe the report is accurate. What’s more, I think Apple’s homemade processors will eventually appear in Mac desktops, as well as laptops.

Bloomberg says that the chip, which went into development last year, is similar to one already used in the latest MacBook Pro to power the keyboard’s Touch Bar, The updated part, internally codenamed T310, would handle some of the computer’s low-power mode functionality, the article adds.

Apple’s new Mac chip is based on the T1 chip used in the new MacBook Pro to run the laptop’s Touch Bar.

Apple is developing a new ARM-based chip for its Mac lineup that would "take on more of the functionality" handled by Intel processors, reports Bloomberg.

Apple engineers are planning to offload the Mac's low-power mode, a feature marketed as "Power Nap," to the next-generation ARM-based chip. This function allows Mac laptops to retrieve e-mails, install software updates, and synchronize calendar appointments with the display shut and not in use.

It's Time To Admit Apple Watch Is a Success

At company's quarterly earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the holiday period was the company's "best quarter ever" for Apple Watch -- both units and revenues -- "with holiday demand so strong that we couldn't make enough." He added: Apple Watch is the best-selling smartwatch in the world, and also the most-loved, with the highest customer satisfaction in its category by a wide margin. Apple Watch is the ultimate device for a healthy life, and it's the gold standard for smartwatches. We couldn't be more excited about Apple Watch. Long time Apple commentator Rene Ritchie writes: There's a strange narrative in the tech community concerning Apple Watch being a flop, a failure, or in some way, shape, or form, a disappointment. It's particularly bizarre given Apple Watch, as part of the wearable market, is doing record numbers. It could be that there is no real "Smartwatch market", just an Apple Watch market.

The iPad keeps frowning

One down point in Apple’s numbers was reported iPad sales. Jason Snell:

Apple sold half as many iPads for the 2016 holiday quarter as it did in 2013.

And:

Meanwhile, average selling price sagged, after a brief buoying caused by the release of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro—a sign that during this sluggish holiday period, iPad sales were largely comprised of older, cheaper models.

I chalk this up to iPad maturity. My iPad is more than a year old, and I don’t have any sense that it is slow, outdated. I use it regularly, and have no performance complaints. Sluggish performance is a major factor that would drive me to replace my iPad.

Jason again:

The iPad has 85 percent of the market of tablets priced over $200. The important facts here: Apple’s not interested in selling a sub-$200 iPad, and so that means it’s doing spectacularly well in the market.

If there’s a problem, it’s that Apple built a product that does what it is supposed to do and...

It’s time to admit Apple Watch is a success

Rene Ritchie pulls together quotes from Apple’s earnings call, tweets from Apple watchers, and sales estimates, to make the case that Apple Watch is not only a success, but a critical part of Apple’s ecosystem.

My 2 cents: I agree wholeheartedly. At the very least, the Apple Watch is a reliable, elegant, affordable timepiece.

Add in the most basic of its capabilities, the ability to receive a steady stream of notifications, and the Apple Watch is a no-brainer. If you then layer in fitness tracking, calendar management, and the ability to run third party apps, the Apple Watch climbs onto its own worthy perch in the ecosystem.

Apple considers legal options against Trump’s...

Trip Mickle, Wall Street Journal:

Apple Inc. is weighing legal action and continuing to press the Trump administration to reverse its executive order on immigration, Chief Executive Tim Cook said in an interview.

Mr. Cook said hundreds of Apple employees have been affected by the order, which suspended entry to the U.S. for refugees and travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations. He added that he continues to contact “very, very senior people in the White House” and impress on them why repealing the executive order is important not only for Apple but for the country.

“More than any country in the world, this country is strong because of our immigrant background and our capacity and ability as people to welcome people from all kinds of backgrounds. That’s what makes us special,” said Mr. Cook. “We ought to pause and really think deeply through that.”

And:

Mr. Cook declined to elaborate on Apple’s possible legal options, except to say that “we...

iOS beta alert spells the end of the line for 32-bit...

Andrew Cunningham, Ars Technica:

Beta builds of iOS 10.3, the first of which was issued last week, generate warning messages when you try to run older 32-bit apps. The message, originally discovered by PSPDFKit CEO and app developer Peter Steinberger, warns that the apps “will not work with future versions of iOS” and that the app must be updated by its developer in order to continue running. The apps still run in iOS 10.3, but it seems likely that iOS 11 will drop support for them entirely.

Apple planted the seeds for this a few years ago when they mandated that all new apps be 64-bit compatible. Then, last summer, warning alerts appeared when 32-bit apps were run, reminding the user that using the app “may affect overall system performance”. So this is simply the next step in the progression.

As slow purchase cycles likely explain falling iPad...

While Apple yesterday announced record sales of three major products – iPhone, Mac, Watch – there was one notable omission from the celebrations: the iPad. Far from setting any records, the iPad continued its year-on-year decline, with a 19% fall in sales and 22% drop in revenue.

Marco Arment suggested that the prevailing wisdom that tablets are the future while computer sales dwindle might be wrong, and that iPads remain a largely additional device rather than a replacement for a Mac.

But either way, one factor more than any other is likely to be at play …

Apple Quietly Updates AirPods Firmware to Version 3....

Apple today quietly put out a firmware update for the AirPods, bumping the Bluetooth headphones from version 3.3.1 to 3.5.1, as spotted by a user on Reddit. The update to AirPods is automatic for any AirPods in their Charging Case and connected to a nearby iOS device. After making sure the AirPods are connected, users can check their current firmware version by going to the Settings app on iPhone > General > About > AirPods.

It's not clear what the 3.5.1 update covers due to its silent release and a lack of specific patch notes, but the AirPods have faced a number of complaints over the past few weeks that the new firmware version could potentially be addressing. Mainly, there have been a number of user complaints regarding battery drain issues with the AirPods and the...
