Sapphire Displays for iPhone 6 Missed by 'Weeks...

One of the biggest rumors for the iPhone 6 was a new sapphire display cover courtesy of Apple's partnership with GT Advanced Technologies. Some rumors had suggested sapphire might be limited to high-end models, but at the device's unveiling earlier this week the feature was nowhere to be found on any of the new models.

GT's stock took a significant hit as it became clear the iPhone 6 was not using a sapphire display, and analyst Matt Margolis has issued a new report based on supply chain sources claiming sapphire displays missed being included in the iPhone 6 by just "weeks".

According to Margolis' sources, the issue was not GT's production, as the company is said to have been steadily shipping out sapphire from its factory in Mesa, Arizona....

Trade-In Options for iPhone 6 Buyers With Old Devices

After purchasing an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus, many upgraders will be left with old iPhones or Android phones that can be worth quite a bit of money. There are several options for trading in old devices that can significantly cut down on the cost of purchasing a new device, and most of the trade-in options are entirely hassle free. Some carriers are even offering trade-in bonuses in order to entice users to upgrade to an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus.

Verizon, for example, is offering a free 16GB iPhone 6 with the trade-in of an iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5c, or 5s in good working condition with the renewal of a two-year contract, a $199 value. That's not a great deal for users that have a mint-condition iPhone 5s (which is generally worth more than $199), but it is a pretty solid option for former 4, 4s, 5, or 5c users.

National Geographic:

The Knowledge of London is a real-time, street-level test of memorization skills so intense that it physically alters the brains of those who pass it.

To qualify for that elusive green badge, you need to learn by heart all 320 sample runs that are listed in the Blue Book, the would-be cabbie’s bible. You will also have to commit to memory the 25,000 streets, roads, avenues, courts, lanes, crescents, places, mews, yards, hills, and alleys that lie within a six-mile radius of Charing Cross.

I am severely directionally challenged and couldn’t complete The Knowledge on pain of death but reading about the process they have to go through is fascinating.

New York magazine:

It will start with a friend. A friend who lives in San Francisco, maybe. Or who works as a venture capitalist. Or who recently had a birthday.

And then, sometime around June, you’ll get an unexpected infusion of cash — a security deposit you forgot you’d paid, or a few hundred dollars from your tax return. And you’ll find yourself on Apple.com late at night, admiring the watch, wondering if the $349 you’d spend would ever really be worth it.

What the hell, you’ll say. Add to cart.

It won’t work this way for most people but this will be a process very similar to what many have gone through in the past with Apple products and certainly will with the Apple Watch.

Mining iPhones and iCloud For Data With Forensic...

SternisheFan points out an article that walks us through the process of using forensic tools to grab data from iPhones and iCloud using forensic tools thought to have been employed in the recent celebrity photo leak. There are a number of ways to break into these devices and services depending on what kind of weakness an attacker has found. For example, if the attacked has possession of a target's iPhone, a simple command-line toolkit from Elcomsoft uses a jailbreak to bypass the iPhone's security. A different tool can extract iCloud data with access to a computer that has a local backup of a phone's data, or access to a computer that simply has stored credentials. The discusses also details a method for spoofing device identification to convince iCloud to restore data to a device mimicking the target's phone. The author concludes, "Apple could go a long way toward protecting customer privacy just by adding a second credential to encrypt stored iCloud data. An encryption password...

    Apple is offering partial refunds to recent iCloud subscribers as it drops the price of its cloud storage plans.

    The refunds were first reported by Circa editor Nicholas Deleon, who received an e-mail from Apple about refunds to his personal iCloud account. Deleon had been paying $40 per year for 25 GB of storage, but will start paying $12 per year on October 10. To cover the price difference between now and then, Apple is giving Deleon a prorated refund of $2.38.

    Apple's iCloud storage plans previously included 5 GB of free data and cost $20 per year for an extra 10 GB, $40 per year for 20 GB, and $100 per year for 50 GB.

    Following Tuesday's announcement of both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple announced plans to begin taking pre-orders for the devices on Friday, September 12.

    Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T will all begin accepting pre-orders at 12:01 AM PT according to their websites, and carriers typically open up pre-orders alongside Apple. Apple's support representatives are, however, still claiming that the company does not yet have a specific time for the pre-order.

    Unlike last year where only the iPhone 5c was available for pre-order, Apple will be offering both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus for pre-order. There have been few reports on available supply, but typically it's best to make an order right away if possible because in the past, pre-orders have sold out within mere minutes. As we mentioned yesterday, it's a good idea to check on upgrade eligibility...

The baseband manages the radio functions of an iPhone or cellular-capable iPad, allowing the device to communicate with the carrier's mobile network. "Chances are high that global smartphone makers such as Apple and LG Electronics will use Intel’s baseband chips in their products down the road,” said Lee Hee-sung, the president of Intel Korea, at a press meeting on Thursday.

    Such collaborations are highly likely given that the world’s largest smartphone maker, Samsung Electronics, has recently announced its midrange premium handset the Galaxy Alpha, which contains Intel’s XMM7260 baseband modem."Apple had...

    The overall average of AAPL stock price targets was $109, against the current price of just over $100. Analysts pointed to a range of factors in forming their views, among them … ...

    Nearly 5 Million Gmail Passwords Dumped to the...

    Over 4.9 million Gmail user names and passwords were posted on a Russian Bitcoin forum earlier this week, posing a potential security headache for a lot of people. Google said there wasn't any data breach, which means the logins were likely culled from other sites.

    The Mac Observer Spin: Posting user names and pasword lists online is a pretty crappy thing to do and sometimes the Internet is a pretty crappy place. This Gmail password leak is a great reminder to avoid using the same login information on more than one site.

    Siri: workaround Content Not Available error

    A few weeks ago, a number of people started reporting having trouble with Siri. Phrases like 'Call my wife' or 'Tell my dad' stopped working. Siri knew who those people were but proclaimed 'Uh oh, I don't have a phone number for Jane Isa Doe." and beneath, there's a message: "Content Not Available."



    I debugged this for over an hour and on a hunch, found a workaround that seems to work for nearly everyone who has tried it. All you have to do is delete the middle name of the person in *your* contact card where it is stored as a relationship.



    I'm not sure why that works; it shouldn't, but it does. That's why I call it a workaround instead of a fix. I figure Apple is mucking around with Siri and perhaps caused a bug or some sort of corruption.



    I'd be curious to know from MacOSXHints users whether they are experiencing this problem in the first place and if the workaround works for you, too. I'd also like to...

    For most people, the decision of which wallpaper to choose for your iPhone is just a matter of going through your photo library to find the right picture. For Espen Haagensen, however, the process just became a whole lot easier. Starting September 17th, a photo of the Milky Way he captured while in Norway will become the default wallpaper in iOS 8, software that will be downloaded hundreds of millions of times by users all around the world.

    Two days later, on September 19th, countless iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units will begin shipping out to customers, all preloaded with the same shot. I talked to Espen about the photo’s origins and how it feels to be so prominently featured by Apple.

    It’s nearing the end of the year, and that means new iPhones are afoot. Apple has stuck to a September or October release date for its latest smartphones since 2011, and the most noteworthy thing about this year’s Apple harvest is that the iPhones are bigger—like, almost Galaxy Note-style bigger, at the top end.

    From 2007 to late 2012, iPhones all had a single display size: 3.5 inches. The exterior and interior were revised a number...

    Last year, Apple released both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in China on the same day it was released in the US. It’s not clear how long the lag will be for the iPhone 6 release.

    Sketchy supply-chain report says production gearing-...

    DigiTimes is citing supply-chain sources as stating that Apple is gearing-up its iPhone 6 production plans for an anticipated 80 million sales by year-end. If achieved, it would represent 33 percent year-on-year growth.

    Makers in the iPhone supply chain are preparing parts and components for production of up to 80 million units of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus before year-end 2014, according to sources at Taiwan-based iPhone supply chain.

    As ever with DigiTimes, the number should be taken with a large dose of salt: while manufacturers will be aware of their own order-books from Apple, and thus have some degree of insight into the company’s expectations for early sales, it’s a stretch to extrapolate from that to sales targets up to the end of the year.

    Many tech watchers and pundits have weighed in on the recently announced Apple Watch, but almost all the talk has been about it as an interactive device, focusing on features and capabilities. Benjamin Clymer has a different take: the founder of HODINKEE, a publication devoted to wristwatches and wristwatch aficionados, evaluated the Apple Watch, not surprisingly, as a wristwatch. His opinion: “[…] though I do not believe it poses any threat to haute horology manufactures, I do think the Apple Watch will be a big problem for low-priced quartz watches, and even some entry-level mechanical watches. In years to come, it could pose a larger threat to higher end brands, too.” A fascinating look at the watch market and the Apple Watch’s place in it.

    When my boyfriend sent me an email invite to “join him” as his partner on a relationship app called Couple, I thought he
    was joking. A cutesy messaging app isn’t exactly his style, so I let the email sit in my inbox for a few days. Then he nudged me and asked when I was
    going to download Couple. He was serious.

    I kept the sarcastic comments to myself and finally succumbed to being the other half of his digital pair. I laughed and rolled my eyes at Couple’s
    features, like a “thumb kiss” where you touch thumbs to your screen at the same time, and the “thinking of you” button that sends your partner a message
    letting them know you are doing just that.

    “Heres an idea Apple – rather than enter the world of gimmicks and toys, why dont you spend a little more time sorting out your pathetically expensive line up? Or are you really aiming to become a glorified consumer gimmicks firm?”

    “I still can’t believe this! All this hype for something so ridiculous! Who cares? I want something new! I want them to think differently!”

    “Why oh why would they do this?! It’s so wrong! It’s so stupid!”

    “Come on everyone, y’all are saying it sucks before you have even held it in your hand.”

    “The reason why everyone’s dissapointed is because we had our hopes up for this incredible device.”

All six ads can be seen in the video playlist below.

    All of the ads feature two actors dressed similar to Apple Geniuses in an environment that looks like the back area of an Apple Store. The first ad notes how the live stream for Apple's event intermittently cut out for some viewers while also experiencing odd production issues, like two songs playing over each other or a Chinese translator having her audio played over the keynote.

    Apple Upgrading Existing iCloud Subscribers to More...

    Just a day after unveiling new pricing for iCloud, Apple has begun emailing existing iCloud subscribers to notify them that the company is upgrading their accounts to the new price points and will be refunding them the difference. However, users will be allowed to keep the same storage sizes.

    For example, a user subscribed to the 25 GB plan, which is no longer an option under the new iCloud pricing, will have their price reduced from $40 a year to $11.99 a year. The discounted price is in line with the new $0.99 a month price for 20 GB, although established iCloud customers do get an extra 5 GB. However, once a user changes their plan away from "legacy plans" like the 25 GB, they cannot return to them.

    Apple says the new price points are in effect due to iCloud Drive, which lets users store and access data from any of their devices. The launch of both iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite will see the...

    In order to claim the record for “biggest album launch in history,” U2 and Apple needed every single iTunes customer to own the album, so they added it to everyone’s account as a purchase automatically. If you go into your iTunes purchase history right now, you’ll see it there. There’s another place you might see it as well, even though you weren’t expecting it…

That's why I wasn't really excited when Tim Cook and Bono told me I could download the band's new album, Songs of Innocence, for free on iTunes as part of Apple's big product event yesterday. Thanks but no thanks, fellas.

    The Importance of Openness to the Internet of Things


    Consumers today are in an awkward position. Personal privacy is being wiped out by the Internet. At the same time, new technologies that interconnect our devices with our homes and office environments are offering stupendous advantages. Welcome to the Internet of Things' new world of openness. "Openness" means something different depending on whether you're basking in the convenience of all things connected or contributing to the monetized cash flow that connected-product purveyors get from your personal information.

    A couple of reports yesterday and today have highlighted a little tidbit of information many have been wondering about the upcoming Apple Watch: How will the device make sure payments via Apple Pay are secure? Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have the convenient Touch ID sensor to validate that your purchases are indeed being done by you, but new information suggests that the Apple Watch is going to accomplish this security in a slightly different way…

    Apparently, the Apple Watch is going to use a PIN code to authorize Apple Pay, after which the device will remain authorized as long as it remains on your wrist. It accomplishes this using one or more of the sensors on the back of...

    Apple Watch Will Use Skin Contact for Apple Pay...

    When Apple announced that the Apple Watch would be able to use Apple Pay, the company's new mobile payment initiative, many wondered how secure the payments would be if the device lacked the security of Touch ID, which is used in the iPhone 6's implementation. Now, several members of the press have confirmed how the system works.

    Both Rene Ritchie of iMore and Cult of Mac report that when a user first puts on the Watch they must type in a PIN code to authorize Apple Pay. Once it's on, the Watch uses constant skin contact, which it can sense using the four sapphire-covered lenses on the underside of the device, to authorize payments. However, once the device is removed from a user's wrist, they must re-enter their PIN when putting the device back on their wrist.
    Thanks to sensors on the Apple Watch’s back, the...

    The iPhone 6: Balancing Design with Deep Engineering

    A year ago I posted a report wondering why Apple missed the boat on the phablet trend. I followed up with a report in May of this year wondering why there was still no word about Apple entering this explosive market that had grown 369% in the first quarter of 2014. Yet during Apple's trial with Samsung an internal slide surfaced that confirmed that Apple knew that they had missed the phablet trend. Shortly thereafter the rumors began to surface that Apple was working on a 5.5 inch iPhone for later this year. Yesterday Apple introduced the iPhone 6-Plus to cheers around the world. Apple's VP of Hardware Engineering noted yesterday that "The way people experience their iPhone has always started with the display." The reason for not releasing an iPhone phablet earlier was that they didn't have the display just right. The end result was yesterday's introduction of the Retina HD Display. While there's ...

    No one has really figured out what a smartwatch should look like yet, but one thing is for sure: Google and Apple have taken vasty different routes to getting a computer on your wrist. To show just how different, we put together this gallery of similar screens from the Apple Watch and Android Wear. They should be easy enough to tell apart: the Apple Watch is the square one, while the Android Wear screenshots are all from the Moto 360 and therefore (mostly) round.

The company is said to be handing out training materials to employees on a new "virtual queue" system called Reservation Pass.

It will sync with Back Of House inventory information in realtime so Apple doesn't handout too many product reservations. Customers will receive their digital reservation card via SMS or Email.

    After 30 years, Macworld is no longer a magazine

    Fast Company:

    In January of 1984, Apple announced the Macintosh. Among the many things which made the launch memorable was the fact that the brand-new computer was accompanied by a brand-new magazine, IDG’s Macworld. Thanks to a deal hashed out by IDG’s David Bunnell and Apple’s Steve Jobs, the first issue debuted the same day that the Mac did, which means that there’s never been such a thing as a Mac market that wasn’t covered by Macworld.

    Sadly, that long run is about to end.

    The 800lb gorilla of Mac publishing just became a 4lb chihuahua. Sad day.

    Wi-Fi calling and texting allow users to send and receive calls/texts over a Wi-Fi network, which is useful in areas where there are poor cellular connections. Apple announced Wi-Fi calling support for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus yesterday.

    T-Mobile plans to offer Wi-Fi calling and texting at no additional cost. The company has also deployed a new product for customers who have bad cellular reception in their homes.

    A watch guy’s thoughts on the Apple Watch

    HODINKEE:

    I do not believe it poses any threat to haute horology manufactures, I do think the Apple Watch will be a big problem for low-priced quartz watches, and even some entry-level mechanical watches. In years to come, it could pose a larger threat to higher end brands, too. The reason? Apple got more details right on their watch than the vast majority of Swiss and Asian brands do with similarly priced watches, and those details add up to a really impressive piece of design. It offers so much more functionality than other digitals it’s almost embarrassing. But it’s not perfect, by any means. Read on to hear my thoughts on the Apple Watch, from the perspective of a watch guy.

    Great perspective from “the other side of the fence” – how does the Apple Watch fit into the watch market? Thanks to Jared Earle for the link.

    Apple lowers prices on iCloud drive, lets you buy a...

    Today Apple announced a price cut for iCloud storage and a new 1TB tier for power users. Still, the price drops were not as dramatic as some might have hoped, and Apple remains undercut by rivals like Google and Dropbox.

    Apple gave details about its price cuts back at its developer conference in June, but today those prices included two higher-tiered plans for people who want 500GB and 1TB of storage on the company's servers. On its website, Apple says that users of iCloud Drive will continue to get 5GB for free, and pricing starts at 20GB for $0.99 per month, 200GB for $3.99 per month, 500 GB at $9.99 per month, and 1TB for $19.99 per month. (Tiers were originally priced at $20 a year for 10GB, $40 a year for 20GB, and $100 a year for 50GB).

    On Wednesday, Dutch consumer electronics maker Philips and its subsidiary Woox Innovations announced the new Fidelio M2L headphones, which plug directly into the Lightning port on Apple devices. The headphones are the first third-party audio accessory to use the Lightning port, and they may have even beaten Apple to the punch. Apple talked about Lightning-connected headphones at WWDC in June and bought headphone maker Beats earlier in the summer, leading some to speculate that such an accessory was in the works.

    In June, Apple expanded its Made for iPhone (MFi) program for third-party accessory developers to include the...

Today, the company has shared some more details about its features, and given us a first-look at the swipe-to-type entry method running on the latest build of iOS.

The product’s other features including autocorrection, next-word prediction, and its ability to learn as you use it, are also present in the iOS version.
