The advantages that come with Lightning headphones

Kevin Fox:

Bluetooth, maligned early on for sub-par connectivity and audio quality, has come a very long way, and within a few years wired headphones will be seen as much an outlier as a wired mouse or trackpad. It’s Apple’s style to predict and support this transition at the hardware level by taking away the safety net of a headphone plug that hasn’t changed fundamentally since the ¼” jack was introduced 138 years ago. Nobody alive today has ever known a world without this plug.

To put it bluntly, headphones that plug into the 3.5mm jack are dumb. Literally. At the base level, they’re just wires conducting current to tiny speaker coils, without electronics at all. Sure, some are smarter with inline controls or analog signal processing such as bass boosting or noise cancellation, but most headphones are just dumb wires. And we know how Apple feels about wires, even if they’re pretty smart.

∞ Today’s Apple event

Lots of excitement today as Apple looks to be rolling out the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, perhaps without a headphone jack, perhaps with wireless headphones or headphones that plug into a lightning jack. There’s also likely to be an Apple Music relaunch with an improved interface and, as the bokeh invitation suggests, some dramatic camera improvements.

The event will begin at 10am PT, 1pm ET. You can watch the live stream here or on the Events channel on your Apple TV.

The Apple Store is down and presents this message:

Looking forward to seeing what Tim, Jony, and the gang have up their sleeves.

Apple’s ‘AirPods’ to use custom Bluetooth chip,...

Juli Clover, writing for MacRumors:

[KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Ku] suggests Apple is working on its own Bluetooth-like communication chip and its own Bluetooth headphones.

And:

The chip may be included in the wireless earbuds Apple has in development, which are said to be Bragi Dash-style wireless Bluetooth earbuds that are entirely wire free. The earbuds will be called “AirPods,” based on trademark filings that have been discovered, and the product could be unveiled as early as September 7 alongside the iPhone 7.

And:

According to Kuo, Apple will sell its Apple-branded Bluetooth headphones alongside its Beats line of headphones, targeting the high-end market with the “AirPods” and the mid-range market with the Beats headphones. It is not clear if that means the AirPods will be priced higher than Beats headphones are at the current time or if Apple plans to lower prices on Beats going forward.

Sounds like Apple is positioning Apple...

Apple Pay may be en route to Japan with a little help from Sony.

The current rumor has it that Apple has partnered with Sony to bring its Apple Pay service to Japan. As has been previously rumored, Apple will make future versions of the iPhone compatible with Sony’s FeliCa technology to allow Japanese citizens to use Apple Pay for contactless payments at FeliCa-compatible terminals.

FeliCa is Sony’s tap-to-pay format, which has been widely adopted in Japan. It’s used to access the country’s railway and bus system, and it’s able to store e-money that can be used at vending machines, cafes, and other locations equipped with FeliCa systems. FeliCa is able to process transactions in a fraction of a second, making it suitable for use in a fast-paced transit environment...

AT&T, Qualcomm to test expanding cellular...

This is a pretty neat idea.

Communications companies Qualcomm and AT&T today announced plans to start testing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS, also known as drones) on cellular networks later this month. The goal is to analyze how drones can operate safely and more securely on commercial 4G LTE and future networks such as 5G.

The trials will take place at Qualcomm’s UAS Flight Center in San Diego, where engineers will work to mimic commercial, residential and uninhabited areas.

The team will examine coverage, signal, strength, and mobility across network cells as drones fly. Drones right now are only useful as they remain in view of the operator’s visual range. One way to break that limit is to rely on carriers, opening up the door for drones performing deliveries...

How to send text messages with Siri

Sure, you can send text messages on an iPhone or iPad using the virtual keyboard. However, it’s easier to do it using Siri, Apple’s “personal digital assistant.” Here’s how to do this:

  • Press and hold the Home button to activate Siri (or say “Hey, Siri” if you iPhone supports this feature).
  • Say something like “Text Laura Sellers” or “Send text to Laura Sellers.” Siri opens your Messages app and puts the name of the person you’re texting in the To field.
  • Siri will ask, “What do you want your message to say?” Dictate your text message.
  • When you’re done, Siri shows you the message and asks you if you want to send it.
  • Say “Yes” or “Send” to send the message. Or say “No” or “Cancel” to cancel the message.

Comment: ‘Bluetooth-like’ connectivity could be...

Six Colors’ Jason Snell (via Daring Fireball) posed an interesting question in his preview of today’s launch event: how will Apple justify the removal of the headphone socket? Will it do so loudly or quietly, and what will it sell as the benefit?

What’s going to be interesting is how Apple explains the move. Does it play it off quickly with a shrug—“wireless is better”—or does it go into detail? Does the jack’s removal get blamed on some other great iPhone feature that required the space? Does Apple have a bigger story about wireless headphones that it uses to distract from the removal issue?

I’ve already suggested that Apple has been preparing the ground for some...

Will Apple do hearing aids?

By Greg Mills

Having written quite a few articles under the Greg’s Bite banner for Apple Daily Report, a couple of years back I took some time out to develop a medical diagnostic device that is used to detect Alzheimer’s Disease as much as 20 years out. That project has kept me off the streets and out of trouble, but I always enjoyed prognosticating on what the great brain trust in at Apple was doing.

I predicted Apple would launch a cool 3D printer, 3D software, an STL file store and a 3D scanner perhaps using iPhone or iPad technology.  Well, that hasn’t happened yet, but it still could.  

Predicting Apple’s new product lines has always been hit and miss, but typically, business movements that become public hint at what is to come. Case in point: digital hearing aids. Apple’s thinking when it comes to new products: disrupt an established market that is substantial enough to make serious money, find a product that people need and want...

AI learning to drive real time bid advertising

Juniper Research (www.juniperresearch.com) has found that machine learning algorithms used to enable more efficient ad bids over RTB (real-time bidding) networks will generate some $42 billion in annual ad spend by 2021, up from an estimated $3.5 billion in 2016.

Machine learning — a subset of AI — has arrived at a point where it is both accessible as well as affordable to a wide range of stakeholders. Juniper anticipates that the technology will eventually permeate into nearly all industries in the next five years.

Hot Mac games released this summer

I hope you had a great summer. I know it sucks that it’s over, but let me tell you: all the great Mac games that came out this summer and which will keep you busy until fall.

World of Warcraft Legion

Without a doubt, the hottest release this summer was World of Warcraft Legion. Other than being the best WoW expansion ever (at least according to critics), Legion now uses Metal, MacOS’ new graphics engine. According to our tests, the game is 60% faster now, giving you one more reason to give WoW another try. You can read all about it here.

H_Fisher writes: It has arguably inspired many other technological innovations in the fifty years since its premiere, and now another Star Trek-inspired touch could be coming to your device: the voice of Majel Barrett from the Star Trek universe's LCARS computer system. CNET reports: "The voice of LCARS was provided by Majel Barrett, who was married to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. Although Barrett sadly passed away in 2008, she took several roles on the show over the years, including nurse Christine Chapel in Star Trek: The Original Series and Betazoid ambassador Lwaxana Troi on Star Trek: The Next Generation. According to a tweet by the official Roddenberry account yesterday, this has provided enough phonetic data to perhaps get Barrett's voice appearing in upcoming new 2017 TV series Star Trek: Discovery -- and maybe even a Siri-like virtual assistant."

Localytics measured share by tallying the models among more than 100 million iPhones that reported data to the app developers that use its analytics tools.

As has been previously rumored, Apple will make future versions of the iPhone compatible with Sony's FeliCa technology to allow Japanese citizens to use Apple Pay for contactless payments at FeliCa-compatible terminals.

Though everyone knows by now that Apple is working on some sort of automotive technology, no one knows if it’s a full blown “Apple Car” or hardware/software for vehicles. However, a new survey suggests that more than half of U.S. consumers would be interested in cars developed by tech giants Google and Apple.

TECHnalysis Research recently surveyed 1,000 U.S. consumers who both own a car and are planning to purchase a new one within the next two years. They were asked a wide range of questions regarding car brands, features, technologies, and much more. One of the questions specifically focused on the potential interest that consumers would have in purchasing a car sold by Apple, Google, or another major tech company.

Half of the respondents in the survey said they would give at least moderate consideration to purchasing a car from a tech...

First Annapolis has released the third edition of the Study of Mobile Banking & Payments, a semi-annual consumer research study that tracks consumer adoption and use of the mobile channel for banking and payments. The study shows that 89% of U.S. consumers with Apple Pay compatible devices use the service at least once a week.

First Annapolis says that almost 90% of iPhone 6 owners are aware of Apple Pay; nearly two-thirds of compatible Android users are aware of Android Pay; and more than half of Samsung Galaxy owners are aware of Samsung Pay. Those who have used the Pay services give them high ratings: an average of 4.4 out of 5 across the boards, with only a few expressing dissatisfaction.

Twenty-five percent of respondents with compatible devices have enrolled in a Pay service (42% of iPhone 6 users, and 14% and 18% of those with compatible Android and Samsung devices, respectively).  Initial...

Rumor: Apple’s ‘AirPods’ to use custom Bluetooth chip

The analyst predicts that Apple will sell its Apple-branded Bluetooth headphones alongside its Beats line of headphones, targeting the high-end market with the "AirPods" and the mid-range market with the Beats headphones. What’s more, Kuo doesn’t think the company will package Bluetooth headphones with the “iPhone 7,” that’s expected to be unveiled tomorrow. Rather, he thinks that Apple will ship the iPhone 7 with Lightning-based EarPods that feature a Lightning connector instead of a 3.5mm headphone jack and sell the “AirPods” separately.

With the announcement of the newest iPhone just a day away, many existing iPhone owners might be starting to think about selling their "old" iPhone to get some cash to help defray the cost of the new equipment. As an Apple blogger, I pretty much have to get each year's new model and unlike some of the writers at the bigger blogs, I can't afford to just go out and buy the new model and throw the old ones into my "museum". So I usually take advantage of online resellers like Gazelle, NextWorth and BuyBackWorld to try to get the best possible trade-in for my old smartphone. If you're considering a move to the new iPhone, it pays to shop around.

Carhartt—building a durable, agile workplace...

Today’s post was written by John Hill, chief information officer at Carhartt.

Over 127 years ago, hardworking Americans were building the ultimate connectivity tool, the railway. Hamilton Carhartt created the iconic Carhartt bib overalls for railway workers by asking them directly what they wanted from their work wear. When I joined Carhartt seven months ago, I saw that this culture of one-to-one interaction remained intact. Authentic communication is at the heart of the Carhartt brand, so when we looked for a business productivity solution to help our employees work better together, we chose Office 365 as the ideal toolkit to keep our core values in a digital age.

It’s difficult to maintain a face-to-face culture in a screen-to-screen world, but with Office 365 we’ve built a close-knit, interactive and empowering workplace for 1,500 office workers out of 4,000 employees across Mexico, Canada and Europe. We use video calls with Skype for...

“Apple’s iPhone 6s is currently the world’s most popular smartphone,” said Neil Mawston, Executive Director at Strategy Analytics. “The iPhone 6s is wildly popular in dozens of countries globally, due to its attractive hardware design blended with rich features such as 4K video, large...

The Apple engineer who moved Mac to Intel applied to...

Jim Edwards, writing for Business Insider, brings together a story from The New York Times on Apple and agism with an anecdote about the engineer who got OS X to run on a PC:

“Bertrand walks in, watches the PC boot up, and says to JK, ‘How long would it take you to get this running on a (Sony) Vaio?’ JK replies, ‘Not long’ and Bertrand says, ‘Two weeks? Three?’

“JK said more like two hours. Three hours, tops.

“Bertrand tells JK to go to Fry’s (the famous West Coast computer chain) and buy the top of the line, most expensive Vaio they have. So off JK, Max and I go to Frys. We return to Apple less than an hour later. By 7:30 that evening, the Vaio is running the Mac OS. [My husband disputes my memory of this and says that Matt Watson bought the Vaio. Maybe Matt will chime in.]

“The next morning, Steve Jobs is on a plane to Japan to meet with the President of Sony.”

iOS continues growth as the ‘iPhone 7’ looms

The latest smartphone operating system data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech shows year-on-year sales growth for iOS in the three months ending July 2016 in most regions, including the U.S., EU5 (Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain), and Australia. In the U.S., Android posted a year-on-year decline in sales of 0.6 percentage points to 65%.

“Ahead of Apple’s event this week and anticipated new iPhone models, we see that the iPhone SE has meant some success for iOS, helping it achieve year-on-year growth across a number of regions,” says Lauren Guenveur, Consumer Insight director for Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. “In the US, iOS accounted for 31.3% of smartphone sales in the three months ending July 2016, a 1.2 percentage point increase compared to the same period a year ago.”

The iPhone 6s remains the top-selling device in the market with an 11% share, something Kantar expects to continue through the...

A deep take on the Apple car

Greg Kable, writing for Autocar:

Ground zero for the iCar right now is the workshop at 960 Kifer Road in Sunnyvale. In this Silicon Valley suburb, which is also home to a long established Mercedes-Benz research and development centre among hundreds of ambitious start-up companies, Apple is rumoured to be developing elements of its newest product under the cloak of a shell company called SixtyEight Research.

And:

SixEight Research is named on documentation as being the importer of a 1957 Fiat Multipla 600 from the UK to the US in 2014 – a move that has led to rumours that the production iCar could take the form of an upright one-box MPV-style car similar in dimensions to the Volkswagen Budd-E revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show last January.

Here’s a picture of that car.

David Smith on the shifting App Store business model

David Smith, long time indie app developer:

I’ve been thinking this past week (as I often do) about the ever-changing landscape of the App Store. This year has seen some of the biggest changes in policy and structure that I can remember. We have new subscription pricing models , search ads, a substantial purge of older apps , new requirements for app names and a variety of little changes to the App Store app itself in iOS 10.

I won’t know how the sum of these changes will impact my business until probably later this fall, but it seemed like a good time to look back at the last several years and examine the path that brought me here.

And:

The App Store ecosystem today is wildly different from what it was back then. I launched my first app into a store of around 90k apps, today we have well over 2 million. Back then we didn’t have advertising networks, in-app purchases or subscriptions. You were free or paid, and if you wanted to make a living you pretty...

Everyone seems to hate online reader comments. Here’...

Margaret Sullivan, columnist for The Washington Post:

When NPR announced last month that it would no longer feature comments from readers on its website, general rejoicing followed.

“Good riddance — and everybody else should do the same” was the tone of the response I saw on Twitter. USA Today columnist Rem Rieder, noting that other news organizations are moving away from comments as well, wrote, “Their disappearance is welcome.” And even NPR’s ombudswoman, Elizabeth Jensen, wrote that the move made sense to her, since such a small slice of the audience was participating.

I disagree. I find value in reader comments that can’t be adequately reproduced elsewhere. The argument that the conversation has migrated to Facebook and Twitter is flawed. Those are good places for discussion, but they are no substitute for having discussion take place where the story itself lives. I’m convinced that many smart readers with something to contribute will not follow a story...

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, Apple’s iPhone 6s was the world’s top-selling smartphone model in the second quarter of 2016. Apple currently accounts for two of the three top-selling smartphone models shipped worldwide, according to the research group.

Strategy Analytics estimates the iPhone 6s model shipped 14.2 million units and accounted for 4% share of all smartphones shipped worldwide in quarter two 2016. It’s wildly popular in dozens of countries globally, due to its attractive hardware design blended with rich features such as 4K video, large multi-touch display, and fingerprint security,” says Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics.

The research group says the iPhone 6 shipped 8.5 million units worldwide for second position and 2% marketshare during quarter two 2016, followed by Samsung Galaxy S7 edge in third place with 8.3 million and 2% share.

As expected, the measurements for the Apple Watch 2 represent an overall slightly thinner display than the original model, while its battery is noticeably thicker.

Thanks to the detailed measurements, Byte was able to confirm that the Apple Watch 2's display is 2.86 mm at its thickest location and 2.12 at its thinnest, compared to 3.57 mm and 2.99 mm, respectively, for the original Apple Watch.

Sales of the Apple Watch dipped in the second...

Shipments of wearable devices such as the Apple Watch reached 22.5 million in the second quarter of 2016 (2Q16) according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker. Despite a decline in shipments for one of the largest vendors, the overall market for wearable devices grew 26.1% year over year as new use cases are slowly starting to emerge.

Apple was the only vendor among the market leaders to post a year-over-year decrease in shipment volumes, primarily because it did not launch a new model on the anniversary of its first generation Watch. 2Q16 was the first full quarter of Apple's reduced price strategy on the Sport model, which slightly helped the company rebound from its post-holiday slump. The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) says Apple Watch sales will rebound with a vengeance when the second generation smartwatch is...

Proactive Mac Security: Santa

It’s a system for either monitoring what apps are launched and blacklisting the ones you decide are bad, or locking down a macOS computer to only run the ones you’ve whitelisted. Despite what The Register seems to believe, it’s been ‘in development’ (which Google calls… production use at scale,) in the open on GitHub for nearly two years. Like Munki and osquery, we should think of primarily as a tool that does the majority of the heavy-lifting client-side. This is a common ‘agent’ model, as real-time decision-making requires it, and the most intensive work is best suited to the often idle distributed CPU’s on workstations.

Apple patent hints at iPhones with glass enclosures

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,439,305) for a “glass enclosure” that hints at future iPhones encased in glass bodies. In the patent filing, Apple says that one design challenge associated with portable electronic devices is in techniques for mounting structures within the portable computing devices. 

Some assembly processes are both time consuming and cumbersome. Another design challenge is to provide an aesthetically pleasing enclosure that’s functional for the intended purpose of the device. Apple says that, with more devices being capable of wireless communications, a radio transparent enclosure would be beneficial, as it would allow components, such as antennas, to be positioned inside the enclosure. The company’s invention would provide a water-resistant and scratch-resistant enclosure.

According to the patent, the enclosure can be formed from a hollow glass tube or two glass members bonded together. A laser frit bonding process may be...

Do you want/need an iPhone-enabled alarm clock, speaker, radio, USB charger, and disco ball all in one? Then you need the BEDDI from WITTIDesign. It packs a serious amount of features for a $99 device.

Okay, I’m just kidding about the disco ball; the feature is more like a lava lamp. But let me back up. The BEDDI is an “intelligent” alarm clock with features that include a wake-up light, multiple USB charging ports, a Bluetooth speaker, and multi-colored mood lighting. The latter supposedly offers16 million colors. I’ll take WITTIDesign’s word for it; I didn’t count. You can set the BEDDI to awake you by playing your own playlists of tunes (thanks to Spotify integration, though Apple Music integration would be even better).

The piece describes a shell company, an assortment of innocuous real estate and properties and the project, termed “SG6”, as being housed in Sunnyvale, California with only city council documents pointing to it.

As of now, secretive work is being done with the same level of secrecy that goes into other future Apple projects...

The article says Apple’s goal is to see 500,000 sales “iCars” a year — “an acceptable target for a company new to the automotive scene and 10 times what another one of California’s electric car start-ups, Tesla, managed in 2015.” Combined sales of the BMW i3 and i8 totaled just 29,500 last year.

Way back in January, we asked whether you wanted a thinner iPhone at the expense of the 3.5mm headphone jack. The largest group – just under 40% of you – said that you were happy to use Lightning or Bluetooth headphones. The loss of the headphone socket now looks like a done deal, of course, but without a slimmer form factor.

According to DigiTimes Intel has begun delivering its next-generation notebookuse Kaby Lake processors and will start shipping comparable desktop-use CPUs by year-end 2016.

I’m predicting that Apple will announce new MacBook Pros and iMacs in October with sales starting as soon as the new machines can equipped with Kaby Lake processors. (It’s possible that new Macs will be announced at Wednesday’s media event, but I’m doubtful. When it comes to hardware, I’m only anticipating new iPhones and Apple Watches this week.)

Tell Siri the place you want directions to. For example. “Where is Barnes & Noble?”

Siri will show you the location on a map. If there are multiple locations, you can tap the one you want.

The location will be shown to you on a map.

Siri will then present you with directions from your current location to your destination.

iPhone 7 Series Said to Feature 60FPS 4K Video...

A Vietnamese technology website claims to have spent some time trying out a fully assembled and operational 4.7-inch iPhone 7, offering a few original tidbits amid a number of details that have already been rumored about Apple's device, set to be unveiled tomorrow.

The tinhte.vn blog offers no photos to back up its claims about the upcoming iPhone 7, so the following should be taken with a liberal dose of salt, but the writer reckons the smaller handset will be capable of recording 4K video at a smoother 60 frames per second, in contrast to the 30fps 4K recording found on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus (60fps is limited to 1080p resolution video on both devices).

Given the...

Apple Hikes Order Volume For iPhone 7 Parts In Wake...

An anonymous reader writes: In wake of Samsung's recall of the Galaxy Note 7, Apple has reportedly hiked orders for parts and components required for the production of the upcoming iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Mac Rumors reports: "Apple shipped on average 30 million iPhone 6s units a month in the second half of 2015. The company originally predicted shipments of the iPhone 7 this year would reach only 60 percent of that number over the same period, but supply chain sources are today reporting that Apple has boosted its original prediction by 10 percent. The hike in order volumes suggests Apple is increasingly upbeat about demand for the new devices among existing iPhone owners seeking to upgrade, despite relatively subdued interest in the iPhone 7 models compared to the pre-launch buzz of previous years. Another potential factor in Apple's upward revision is Samsung's global recall of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone last week, which followed numerous complaints that the device caught fire...

A poster on a Vietnamese Apple website is claiming to have used a working iPhone 7 unit, ahead of the device’s official unveiling on Wednesday at Apple’s press media event. The writer shares his experience handling Apple’s iPhone 7 (not the Plus model) and most of he what he says mirrors previous reports. Apply some skepticism here though: there are no photos for evidence.

There are few new alleged tidbits amongst the usual discussion of an iPhone 6s-esque design. One standout claim is that the iPhone 7 can record 4K video at 60 frames per second. This is up from 4k @ 30 fps on the current iPhone 6s and is a significant upgrade as no phone on the market today can do this …

Bragi Unveils Wireless 'Headphone' Earbuds...

Wireless audio company Bragi has today announced a new pair of Bluetooth earbuds simply called the "Headphone". Based on the firm's original crowdfunded Dash earpieces, the Headphone buds boast the same overall design, but lose some features in favor of a more affordable price tag.

According to Bragi, the main physical difference is the Headphone's three physical buttons, which replace the touch controls found on the Dash for controlling playback, audio transparency, volume, and taking calls.

The activity tracking features native to the $300 Dash buds are also missing in the new earpieces, but their removal shores up battery life on the Headphone, with Bragi promising up to six hours of operation on a single charge, rather than the three hours Dash users will be accustomed to. Bragi also claims the...
