The San Diego-based company aims to inflict pain on Apple in the world’s largest market for smartphones and cut off production in a country where most iPhones are made. The product provides almost two-thirds of Apple’s revenue. Qualcomm filed the suits in a Beijing intellectual property court claiming patent infringement and seeking injunctive relief, according to Christine Trimble, a company spokeswoman.

Mac: Logitech Craft Advanced Wireless Keyboard

Logitech’s new Craft Advanced Wireless Keyboard might possibly be the sexiest Bluetooth keyboard we’ve ever laid our hands on. Designed with creative types in mind, not only does Craft provide a very slick design, but it’s extremely solidly built and brings a whole new workflow with the new Crown — an aluminum dial that can be used to access context-specific tools, ranging from more obvious features like volume and brightness control right through to adjusting brightness, contrast, and saturation in Photoshop or adjusting charts in Excel. Smart backlighting not only adjusts automatically based on room conditions, but also remains off until Craft detects your hands approaching the keyboard — a cool and almost magical feature.

Qualcomm Seeks China iPhone Ban, Escalating Apple...

Qualcomm filed lawsuits in China seeking to ban the sale and manufacture of iPhones in the country, the chipmaker's biggest shot at Apple so far in a sprawling and bitter legal fight. From a report: The San Diego-based company aims to inflict pain on Apple in the world's largest market for smartphones and cut off production in a country where most iPhones are made. The product provides almost two-thirds of Apple's revenue. Qualcomm filed the suits in a Beijing intellectual property court claiming patent infringement and seeking injunctive relief, according to Christine Trimble, a company spokeswoman. "Apple employs technologies invented by Qualcomm without paying for them," Trimble said. An Apple spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday. Qualcomm's suits are based on three non-standard essential patents, it said. They cover power management and a touch-screen technology called Force Touch that Apple uses in current iPhones, Qualcomm said. The...

Thanks to Hullo for sponsoring the Loop this week. A hot, sweaty, flat pillow will wake even the deepest sleeper. Soft traditional pillows collapse under the weight of your head which can cause strains in your neck, shoulders and back. They also retain body heat, which can make sleep uncomfortably warm. It’s time to abandon tradition and try something new!

Have You Ever Slept on a Buckwheat Pillow?

They’re totally different than the soft spongey pillows you’re used to. A buckwheat pillow is sort of like a beanbag for your head. Their unique and firm support simply can’t be matched by traditional pillows. The buckwheat hull filling will perfectly conform to the shape of your head and neck, providing comfortable support all night long. Buckwheat pillows also allow air to move freely though your...

Qualcomm recently filed lawsuits in China in an attempt to stop Apple from selling and manufacturing iPhones in the country, reports Bloomberg. Much of Apple's iPhone assembly process takes place in China, as does the manufacturing of many iPhone components. China is also an important market for Apple, accounting for 22.5 percent of Apple's sales in 2016.

In a filing with the Beijing intellectual property court on September 29, Qualcomm claimed patent infringement and requested injunctive relief. "Apple employs technologies invented by Qualcomm without paying for them," said a Qualcomm spokesperson about the filing.

According to Qualcomm, the lawsuits are based on three non-standard essential patents covering power management and the Force Touch technology that Apple uses in its touch screens.

Review: JBL Pulse 3 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

If you've been following our headphone reviews this year, you've seen us examine a few headphones that feature integrated lighting. We've been puzzled by this trend — why waste battery powering LEDs that don't make the music sound any better? Is this how kids are getting each other's attention these days? If we had been asked whether we thought adding lights to a speaker was a good idea, we probably would have responded with something equally old-headed and puritanical. Luckily, nobody asked our opinion — someone from JBL simply handed us the Pulse 3 and asked us to try it out. Color us surprised: we had fun playing with the pretty lights.{/exp:char_limit}

The is the latest in a long legal battle between the supplier and Apple. Qualcomm previously requested an iPhone ban in the U.S.

AT&T recently revealed some of its Q3 data, and the carrier says it saw 900,000 fewer smartphone upgrades compared to the year ago quarter. A recent Bloomberg piece suggests that the AT&T drop in year-over-year smartphone sales could be a sign that the iPhone 8 isn’t doing so hot.

If the iPhone 8 had been a hit out of the gate, then I would have expected AT&T’s upgrade number might at least have fallen less dramatically.

It does mention that AT&T’s Q3 only included about a week of iPhone 8 sales which isn’t enough to make a judgment, and that the data includes all smartphones, not just iPhones (although it’s amazing to think about one smartphone model being able to influence an entire quarter of carrier sales in one week).

While there are many factors at play, if...

Apple Still Offering Free Delayed Battery Repairs...

If you own a 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display released in Mid 2012 or Early 2013, and your notebook qualifies for battery service, the repair should be free if you are willing to wait for around one month.

Apple has advised Genius Bar employees and Apple Authorized Service Providers to offer these customers a free battery repair if they are willing to wait until at least November 15 for the service to be completed.

Apple has offered this option since August 25 due to a continued shortage of the aluminum enclosure that the battery is glued into on the aforementioned MacBook Pro models, according to an internal memo obtained by MacRumors.

iOS sees growth in U.S., China, Germany, France and...

The latest smartphone OS data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech reveals that for the three months ending in August 2017, iOS posted growth in the U.S., China, Germany, France, and Spain, but performance in Great Britain dropped. 

Consolidated market share for iOS in Europe’s five largest markets was up by 1.2% year on year, held back by a resurgent Samsung in Great Britain, according to the research group. Samsung boosted Android’s growth in Great Britain with the Galaxy S8 and J3 (2016) selling well, while Apple’s flagship models lost momentum in the period prior to the new iPhone announcement, offset slightly by strong sales of the iPhone SE.

“Samsung took full advantage of the weeks just before the iPhone 8 and iPhone X were released in Great Britain, with significant promotional activity that helped drive its overall share to a three-year high of 38.4% for the three months ending August 2017,” says Dominic...

According to China Labor Watch, a labor rights watchdog and advocacy organization, hundreds of workers went on strike on October 11, in protest of Jabil's layoff, position rearrangements and its refusal to provide previously promised rewards. This is based on workers' account.

Jabil is a United States-based global manufacturing services company. Headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida, it is one of the largest companies in the Tampa Bay area. It has 90 facilities in 23 countries, including China, and 175,000 employees worldwide

Workers say the factories are laying off workers and rearranging workers' positions as iPhone 8 sales have slowed.

Apple's portion of the mobile ecosystem market increased in eight major territories in the three months ending August 2017, according to new data collected and shared by Kantar Worldpanel.

Specifically, iOS grew from 31.3 to 35 percentage points year-over-year in the U.S., and although Android still dominates the U.S. smartphone OS market at 63.2 percentage points, it has dipped slightly from its hold of 66.1 percentage points in the same year-ago period.

iPhone X makers still struggling to perfect Face ID...

Nikkei Asian Review:

A tech executive familiar with iPhone X production told Nikkei Asian Review on Thursday that manufacturers are still struggling to perfect 3-D sensors and in particular dot projectors in Apple premium handset’s TrueDepth camera system, though the person could not pinpoint exactly the problem.

And:

The executive’s comments were confirmed by Jeff Pu, an analyst with Taipei-based Yuanta Investment Consulting, who also identified the dot projector as the troublesome component holding back mass production of iPhone X.

Nonetheless, Pu stuck to his view voiced late September that iPhone X will enter mass production in mid-October and begin to be shipped from China in the third week of this month. He is, however, cutting his forecast of the volume of iPhone X that will be produced this year, from 40 million units to 36 million.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is out tonight with a new investor note. Kuo explains that, despite initially believing Apple might readopt fingerprint technology, it’s now likely that all 2018 iPhone models will move to Face ID and leave Touch ID in the past.

I get it. The iPhone X is the future, charting the path of the next generations of iOS devices. But there is some value in being able to unlock my iPhone without looking at it.

With Touch ID, I can extend my arm to tap my iPhone on an awkwardly placed Apple Pay terminal, use my finger to verify my identity. The angle of my phone doesn’t matter.

That said, I’ll wait for the iPhone X and Face ID experience. After all, Apple product folks have been living with Face ID. I can’t imagine they’d abandon Touch ID if it still had value.

As always, take these sorts of rumors with a grain of salt.

Finder has completed research into online smartphone sentiment and found some very interesting results. After analyzing over 110,000 tweets mentioning “iPhone” or “Android,” the customer service site found that Apple’s smartphone was tweeted about 1.3 times more and received a 1:1 ratio of positive and negative tweets.

iFixit CEO on the death of the repair culture

Bloomberg:

Late in the evening of Sept. 21, X-rays of the innards of the iPhone 8 appeared on Twitter. The images didn’t come from Apple. They were posted by a team from iFixit Inc., a repair-parts, tool and software company in San Luis Obispo, California, that had flown to Australia to take advantage of the 18-hour time difference to buy the new model before it became available in the U.S. When U.S.-based Apple fans woke on iPhone 8 release day, iFixit had a step-by-step guide posted for taking apart the new phone.

Wow! That is commitment.

Over the last decade, the repair culture that spawned generations of driveway mechanics, vacuum-cleaner shops and itinerant TV-fixers has been eroded by manufacturers keen to claim service contracts and revenues. They’ve used intellectual-property laws to restrict access to repair manuals and repair software for products ranging from iPhones to John Deere tractors.

Apple and Samsung fought in California federal court Thursday over what test a jury should use to calculate damages if a judge grants Samsung’s bid for a new trial in a $400 million smartphone patent war between the tech giants, reports Law360.

In January Samsung told the Federal Circuit that Apple was flat wrong in arguing that a recent U.S. Supreme Court finding on design patent awards didn’t disturb its claim on a $400 million award, saying it took “chutzpah” for the iPhone maker to try to stop Samsung’s new trial. In December 2016, the Supreme Court sided with Samsung, throwing out an appeals court ruling that said the South Korean company had to pay a $399 million penalty to its American rival for copying key...

Rumor: iPhones will gain Apple Pencil compatibility...

Apple plans to offer Apple Pencil compatible iPhones “as early as 2019,” according to The Investor, quoting unnamed “industry sources.” Currently for iPad Pros only, the stylus … er, pencil … debuted in 2016.

Along with the stylus technology, Apple's current A-series mobile chip may undergo a drastic upgrade to better support handwriting functions of the planned stylus, adds The Investor. 

There’s evidence that this rumor may actually come true. In May, Apple filed for a patent (number 9,648,7040) for “devices and methods for manipulating user interfaces with a stylus.” The patent mentioned use of the device with iPads, iPhones, and even macOS devices.

Analyst: Apple will go all in with Face ID in 2018...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analysts Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Apple will completely abandon its Touch ID capacitive fingerprint recognition system in favor of the “depth-sensing technology when it introduces next year's iPhone lineup.

We believe this change will allow all new models to realize a competitive advantage via differentiation, on the back of an integrated user experience of full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera/Facial recognition/Face ID/AR applications," he writes.

In September, Kuo said that IF Face ID on the iPhone X is a hit, we’ll see it replacing Touch ID on future iPhones and iPads. Apparently, he expects it to be a hit. Kuo also anticipates that the TrueDepth camera of the iPhone X will pop up in all future iOS gadgets.

BBEdit 12 — A powerful new upgrade

BBEdit 12 is now live. It’s a powerful update, with tons of new features.

I had a chance to see a pre-release of this new version and I have to say, it’s incredible how much work Rich and the team did here. My two favorite features? Canonize and Columns.

Canonize is a search and replace supercharger, letting you build a master transformation file filled with all sorts of search and replace commands. You can even Canonize a proper case spelling of a word. So you could ask Canonize to replace all instances of noerr, NOERR, NoErr with noErr by just including noErr in your list.

Columns lets you select, copy, and rearrange columns of text or data. If you ever spend your time mucking around with datasets or delimited text, you’ll love this feature.

These are but two of many new features, the tip of the iceberg.

Here’s a summary of the high points, and a...

Rumor: Apple to abandon Touch ID in favor of facial...

A new KGI Securities investor note has stated that Apple’s Face ID may be the way of the future for upcoming iPhones and could leave Touch ID in the dust.

KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo, in a recently published note, said that Apple is likely to go all-in on 3D sensing.

The analyst writes that 3D sensing will be a “key selling point” of all new 2018 iPhone models. While Apple currently faces manufacturing difficulties with 3D sensing, Kuo says TrueDepth cameras and Face ID will help Apple “capitalize on its clear lead in 3D sensing design and production for smartphones.”

Kuo has predicted that Apple’s upcoming iPhone from here on out will abandon Touch ID and opt for facial recognition entirely. This move could allow Apple to hold an advantage in sensing technology and create a full-screen design unlike its competitors.

The note also stated that even on the Android side of things, manufacturers will opt towards 3D sensing technology as opposed to in-display or...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170294108) for a “self adapting alert device” that would allow an iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch to autonomously adapt one or more user alerts to the current operating environment of the gadget.

In the patent filing Apple notes that electronic devices are ubiquitous in society and can be found in everything from wristwatches to computers. Many of these electronic devices are portable and also include the ability to obtain a user's attention through the use of an alert device. 

For example portable electronic devices like cellular phones and watches contain alert devices such as vibrating motors, speakers, and/or lights to attract the user's attention. 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...

Apple is reportedly "mulling" the idea of launching a stylus compatible with iPhone, believed to be a new iteration of the Apple Pencil, which is currently only supported by the iPad Pro. The rumor comes from industry sources speaking to The Korea Herald (via The Investor), which claimed that Apple engineers "have recently been working" on a new iPhone device that "comes with a digital pen," aiming for a potential launch in 2019.

The sources said that the iPhone stylus is likely to adopt a "supercapacitor stylus type" for price benefits, contrasting with Samsung's Galaxy Note pen which is based on electromagnetic resonance technology that needs additional panel components to be installed underneath the smartphone display. "A supercapacitor type is cheaper to make compared to the EMR stylus. It also offers a more pen-like feel," according to the industry sources.

  • Find the Live Photo you want to edit and select it.
  • From the center of the screen, swipe up.
  • You can choose from Loop, Bounce, or Long Exposure.

Google Is Really Good At Design

Joshua Topolsky, writing for The Outline: The stuff Google showed off on October 4 was brazenly designed and strangely, invitingly touchable. These gadgets were soft, colorful... delightful? They looked human, but like something future humans had made; people who'd gotten righteously drunk with aliens. You could imagine them in your living room, your den, your bedroom. Your teleportation chamber. A fuzzy little donut you can have a conversation with. A VR headset in stunning pink. A phone with playful pops of color and an interface that seems to presage what you want, when you want it. It's weird. It's subtle. It's... good. It's Google? It's Google.

It was only a few years ago that Google was actually something of a laughing stock when it came to design. As an aggressively engineer-led company, the Mountain View behemoth's early efforts, particularly with its mobile software and devices, focused not on beauty, elegance, or simplicity, but rather concentrated on flexibility,...

Kuo: All iPhone Models in 2018 Likely to Abandon...

All of the iPhones Apple plans to produce in 2018 are likely to abandon the Touch ID fingerprint sensor in favor of facial recognition, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told investors in a note sent out this evening.

According to Kuo, Apple will embrace Face ID as its authentication method for a competitive advantage over Android smartphones. Kuo has previously said that it could take years for Android smartphone manufacturers to produce technology that can match the TrueDepth camera and the Face ID feature coming in the iPhone X.

We predict all new 2H18F iPhone models will likely abandon fingerprint recognition. We believe this change will allow all new models to realize a competitive advantage via differentiation, on the back of an integrated user experience of full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera/ Facial recognition/ Face ID/ AR applications.Face ID, says Kuo, will...

Review: Belkin 3.5mm Audio + Charge RockStar

The removal of the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last year caused no small degree of angst among tech enthusiasts; despite the fact that Apple included a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone adapter in the box, many raised the valid concern that this still didn't provide a way to power, charge, or sync an iPhone while also listening to music. While Belkin was quite to respond to this need last fall with its $40 Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar, this initial solution left us a little perplexed, since instead of actually providing a 3.5mm audio jack, it simply offered two Lightning connectors, allowing you to connect power to one and using the Apple-supplied Lightning to 3.5mm adapter in the other — a functional but awkward solution. We suspect the usual arcane restrictions of Apple's rather opaque MFi program were to blame for this rather kludgy approach, but whatever the reason, we're definitely happy to see Belkin's new 3.5mm Audio + Charge RockStar...

"If I were a French student and I were 10 years old, I think it would be more important for me to learn coding than English. I'm not telling people not to learn English in some form -- but I think you understand what I am saying is that this is a language that you can [use to] express yourself to 7 billion people in the world," Cook tells Konbini. "I think that coding should be required in every public school in the world. [...] It's the language that everyone needs, and not just for the computer scientists. It's for all of us."

With iOS 11 installed on 47 percent of devices, iOS 10 is now installed on 46 percent of devices. 6.7 percent of devices also continue to run iOS 9 or earlier.

Apple’s ARKit has been installed more than three million times through a host of ARKit-powered apps and games since iOS 11 launched on Sept. 19, according to a new report from Sensor Tower.

At this summer’s Worldwide Developer Conference, Apple introduced ARKit. It allows developers to tap into the latest computer vision technologies to build detailed virtual content on top of real-world scenes for interactive gaming, immersive shopping experiences, industrial design and more.

According to Sensor Tower, games are the single largest category at 35% of all available ARKit-only apps. Mobile games have accounted for 53% of ARKit-only app downloads and 62% of revenue since launch, making them the largest portion of this emerging category so far.However, the overall ARKit-only ranking boasts some early standouts from other categories such as lifestyle, utilities, and entertainment.

The devastating wildfires north of San Francisco are taking a heavy toll on life -- with 23 confirmed dead and hundreds reported missing -- and on property and businesses. Close to 3,500 homes and businesses are thought to have been destroyed so far.

Utilities are the second most popular ARKit category, accounting for 19 percent of apps, while 11 percent of ARKit apps are in the Entertainment category and 7 percent are in the Education category.

Bloomberg has partnered with iFixit to provide a high-resolution look at how the inside of the iPhone has changed since first launching a decade ago.

The original iPhone on left vs. brand new iPhone 8 via Bloomberg

The original iPhone, above left, is equipped with a bulky, yellow lithium-ion battery rated for 1,400 mAh. Apple said that was good enough for up to eight hours of talk time, six hours of web browsing, seven hours of video playback, or 24 hours of audio playback, but real-world results certainly varied.

In the top-left corner sits a 2-megapixel rear camera that lacks an LED flash and shoots photos that are unequivocally blurry by today's standards.

While shielding covers many of the other components, the original iPhone is equipped with 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB of storage, a single-core ARM11 processor downclocked to 412 MHz, just 128MB of RAM, and a PowerVR...

Although their customs are drool-worthy, Noble has also gained notoriety for their line of universal-fit in-ears. We had the opportunity to test Noble's Sage, which has a relatively entry-level price for Noble's product range.

The company has apologized for the inconvenience to customers while it prepares a new update that will hopefully fix the remaining issues.

Report: 3D sensor production struggles continue,...

Nikkei is repeating claims of iPhone X production delays first reported last month; suppliers are apparently still struggling with ramping up yields.

Today’s report specifically pinpoints the 3D sensor components, which Apple calls the TrueDepth camera system, as the bottleneck. The news comes as an independent analyst claims iPhone X production is now at 400K a week.

iPhone X Supply Revised Lower Yet Again as TrueDepth...

A new report today yet again suggests that customers looking to get an iPhone X this year might face quite the challenge.

Jeff Pu, an analyst with Taipei-based Yuanta Investment Consulting, has cut his forecast of the number of iPhone X devices that will be produced this year from 40 million units to 36 million. It's the second time he has revised down his estimate, which originally totaled 45 million earlier this year.

The underlying reason is that Apple's suppliers are still struggling to perfect manufacturing of the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera and 3D facial recognition system, according to Japan's Nikkei Asian Review. We first heard about the production issues...

Latest Piper Jaffray teen survey shows iPhone and...

Chance Miller, 9to5Mac:

As it does towards the end of every year, Piper Jaffray today has released its Fall 2017 edition of “Taking Stock with Teens.” This survey aims to analyze what companies teen shoppers are most interested in, and every time, Apple is one of the top performers.

And:

This time around, 78 percent of teens surveyed claimed to own an iPhone, up from 76 percent during the last survey earlier this year, and 74 percent last year.

And:

The Apple Watch isn’t nearly as popular as the iPhone among teens, but it’s growing. Just 12 percent of respondents claimed to have an Apple Watch, with 17 percent saying they plan to purchase one within the next six months. Last time around, 13 percent of teens had purchase intent while 10 percent already owned an Apple Watch.

To be clear, that’s a move from 10% to 12% owning an Apple Watch, from 12% to 17% with intent to buy. Good growth.

A true all-day assistant: The compelling argument...

With the introduction of cellular connectivity in Apple Watch Series 3, it’s now more convenient than ever to leave your phone at home for quick trips and during workouts without consequence – for the most part. When you want to snap that quick photo or have a FaceTime video call, the Watch still won’t cut it. This is the one of the largest remaining friction points in a truly independent Apple Watch experience.

At first it might sound unnecessary, or even a little invasive to have a camera always on your wrist. However, Apple has been putting in place technologies over the last several years that may soon make a camera on the Apple Watch not just a reality, but an essential part of your day-to-day life. Let’s take a look at why now may finally be the right time for all of these pieces to come together.

Tim Cook sits down with Vogue, talks AR, fashion and...

Vogue:

Imagine that you’re out to lunch, and in walks a woman wearing a terrific-looking coat. Who designed it? Did she buy it last season, or is it still on sale? Covertly, you give her coat a quick scan on your smartphone, find out it’s available on Farfetch, and moments later it’s on its way out for delivery.

According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, that future may not be far off. In a sit-down interview with Vogue, the leader of the world’s most valuable technology company said he is betting big on augmented reality (AR), which he believes will transform everything from runway shows to shopping. “I don’t think there is any sector or industry that will be untouched by AR,” he said.

And:

It will also take some time before we’ll be able to scan and identify other women’s coats on our phones. Cook says the company has no plans to build the giant database of clothes, shoes and other goods that would make it possible. But Apple does plan to support companies who...
