Face ID Is Coming To the iPad Pro Next Year, Says...

According to MacRumors, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said iPad Pro models set to be released in 2018 will come equipped with a TrueDepth Camera and will support Face ID. Apple is believed to be adding TrueDepth cameras to the iPad Pro to introduce a user experience that's consistent with the iPhone X and boost competitiveness. From the report: According to Kuo, TrueDepth Cameras will be limited to the iPad Pro, which is Apple's main flagship tablet device. Kuo also predicts 2018 iPhone models will adopt the new camera technology coming in the iPhone X, as he has mentioned in a previous note: "We predict iOS devices to be equipped with TrueDepth Camera in 2018F will include iPhone X and 2018 new iPhone and iPad models. Because of this, we believe more developers will pay attention to TrueDepth Camera/ facial recognition related applications.

Apple Working on Fix for Reachability Bug in iOS 11

Apple is working on a fix for a Reachability bug that prevents the new iOS 11 Cover Screen with Notifications from being accessible from the middle of the iPhone's display, Apple engineering chief Craig Federighi told a MacRumors reader this afternoon.

In an email to Federighi, MacRumors reader Michael asked the following question:Ever since iOS 11 was released as a beta, the ability to invoke the Notification Center from the middle of the screen during reachability was removed. This was an incredibly useful feature as one didn't have to awkwardly try to take ones' thumb all the way back to the top even though reachability was invoked---defeating the whole purpose of it for one crucial task.

If this was done by design I fail to see the purpose or any benefit whatsoever to its removal. If it's a bug, I hope Apple can get around to finally fixing this mistake/oversight.Federighi replied to Michael's email with a short "We are fixing it" note,...

In the second beta of iOS 11.1, Apple has reintroduced the 3D Touch App Switcher gesture on devices that are equipped with 3D Touch.

Analyst: 2018 iPad Pros will get FaceID, TrueDepth...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analyst says the 2018 iPad Pro will add FaceID with a TrueDepth camera, following the debut of such features in the upcoming iPhone X.

Apple says FaceID is “even more convenient than Touch ID.” With Face ID, the iPhone X unlocks only when you’re looking at it. It’s designed to resist spoofing by photos or masks. Your facial map is encrypted and protected by the Secure Enclave. And authentication happens instantly on the device, not in the cloud.

The TrueDepth camera for the iPhone X works by using a projector to cast 30,000 dots on your face, which it then reads with an infrared camera. Apple already demonstrated applications of the system, FaceID and Animojis, both of which promise implications of their own when the TrueDepth SDK (software developer kit...

There’s an opportunity here to help users understand and embrace drag and drop as a powerful way to interact with touch devices, just as they have on the desktop for years.

This is a great article with video examples on how things work. Oisin recently released Castro 2.5 with his implementation on how it all should work.

‘Apple for Athenry’ held to support Apple’s proposed...

More than 300 people have attended a rally in Athenry, Co Galway, Ireland, to support Apple's proposed €850m data centre for the town, reports RTE. The tech giant was granted planning permission over two years ago but construction has been delayed by legal challenges.

The march was organized by a campaign group calling itself “Apple for Athenry.” RTE says that the organizers highlighted the economic benefits of the proposed data centre: 300 construction jobs over multiple phases and 150 technical positions on an ongoing basis.

THIS COMPUTER-GENERATED IMAGE OF APPLE’S PROPOSED DATA CENTER IS COURTESY OF BUSINESS INSIDER.

Apple planned to start building the data center on a 500-acre site before the end of 2015. However, it was delayed when unhappy Irish citizens lodged formal complaints with the Irish government. Complainants argued that the data...

iPad Pro models set to be released in 2018 will come equipped with a TrueDepth Camera and will support Face ID, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told investors in a note this morning.

Kuo believes Apple will add TrueDepth cameras to the iPad Pro to introduce a user experience that's consistent with the iPhone X and boost competitiveness. With all high-end iOS devices equipped with TrueDepth Cameras, "ecosystem development" will also benefit.

According to Kuo, TrueDepth Cameras will be limited to the iPad Pro, which is Apple's main flagship tablet device. Kuo also predicts 2018 iPhone models will adopt the new camera technology coming in the iPhone X, as he has mentioned in a previous note.We predict iOS devices to be equipped with TrueDepth Camera in 2018F will include iPhone X and 2018 new iPhone and iPad models.

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...

Unsupported iTunes 12.6.3 brings iOS App Store back...

One of the "features" of iTunes 12.7.0 -- the latest official version of Apple's media store -- that has befuddled a number of Mac users is the removal of the iOS App Store. For bloggers, having the iOS App Store in iTunes was very useful, as we could use the app to easily search for apps on our Macs while writing. The removal of the iOS App Store also caused issues for Volume Purchase Program (VPP) customers who need to deploy apps within a business through iTunes. Apple has released iTunes 12.6.3 specifically for VPP customers, providing a way for other users to bring back the App Store if they wish.

Now there's one little problem if you want to do this on your own Mac -- if you install iTunes 12.6.3 on your personal Mac that already has 12.7 installed, 12.6.3 will not be able to read an iTunes 12.7  library... If you have a past backup of a 12.6.x iTunes library that can be restored, then here's how...

Apple could benefit from proposed Trump tax plan

Bank of America Merrill Lynch reiterates its “buy” rating and $180 price target for Apple, forecast that President Trump’s tax reform plan will benefit the company.

The plan would cut the corporate tax rate from 35% to 20% and lower repatriation tax rates for the accumulated foreign earnings of U.S. companies. Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Wamsi Mohan tells clients that “existing deferred tax liability on the balance sheet could allow for substantially all of Apple’s foreign cash to be repatriated” and investors will give that cash a higher multiple.  

Mohan estimates the lower corporate taxes to benefit Apple’s earnings per share by $0.77 in fiscal year 2018 and $0.89 in fiscal year 2019. The analyst says Apple has $223B in “unrestricted” cash overseas and could repatriate at a tax rate of 8.75%.

Apple offers Volume Purchase Programs and Apple Configurator on Mac to help enterprise environments manage and mass-deploy apps on iOS devices. However, the company says that “certain business partners might still need to use iTunes to install apps,” which is why iTunes 12.6.3 is available.

If you've already installed a newer version of iTunes, you can download this version of iTunes on your Mac, PC 32-bit or PC 64-bit and run the installer. After installation is complete, you can continue to deploy apps with iTunes.

Apple Quietly Releases iTunes 12.6.3 With Built-In...

Apple has quietly released iTunes 12.6.3, which reintroduces the ability to download App Store apps and ringtones from within the iTunes desktop software.

Is it true that iPhones get slower over time? (tl;dr...

Futuremark:

Last week, a story went viral that claimed Apple was intentionally slowing down older iPhones to push people to buy its latest models. The claim was based on data which shows Google searches for “iPhone slow” spiking dramatically with the release of each new model.

And while plenty of reputable sites debunked the logic of that claim, no one looked at actual performance data to tell the true story.

Fortunately, we have plenty of real-world data we can use. Since 2016, we have collected more than a hundred thousand benchmark results for seven different iPhone models across three different versions of iOS.

These benchmark results provide a unique insight into the everyday performance of each iPhone model over time. And, as you’ll see, there are no signs of a conspiracy.

This is a charge that has been leveled at Apple since the released the second

Set Up A Quick Maven Project

Maven can be as simple or as complicated as you’d like. The maven command line interface is mvn. You can quickly find the version using the –version option:

mvn –version

This is useful for a lot, but most notably to see where Maven is, which is in the home line. You can then create a project by using the archetype:generate option. Let’s say I wanted to create an artifactID of Precache with a standard environment (DarchetypeArtifactId) that doesn’t need to be interactive. That would look as follows using the mvn command:

mvn archetype:generate –DgroupId=com.precache –DartifactId=precache –DarchetypeArtifactId=maven–archetype–quickstart –DinteractiveMode=false

This creates a directory in Maven with a full hierarchy that matches what maven will need (a faux root) for each app created. The pom.xml file is created in the root of the faux root and outlines metadata for the project as well as dependencies. Next, copy any source code into ../src/main/java (where...

Top new Apple Watch Series 3 features – is it worth...

The Apple Watch Series 3 launched alongside the new iPhones two weeks ago, and it’s arguably a more exciting hardware update than the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. With the release of the Series 3, Apple removed the Series 2 from the lineup, leaving customers with a choice between the Apple Watch Series 1 and the Apple Watch Series 3.

With the Series 1 starting at just $249 (or less), it’s an attractive offer that many will consider, but after going hands-on with Series 3 ($329+) over the last few weeks, I think that would be a mistake.

AIM protocol to be shut down after 20 year run

You have to admit, 20 years is a good run for a messaging protocol.

After 20 years, AIM, the AOL Instant Messenger protocol, will be shut down on December 15th, 2017. The announcement was made by Oath, the Frankenstein merger of AOL and Yahoo! created by now-parent company Verizon.

AIM, which surfaced from the original America Online community, served as one of the earliest cross-platform instant messaging tools with Apple embracing it in early versions of OS X.

But AIM was eventually overshadowed by the rise of social networking. Everything from Twitter to Facebook to Snapchat and scores of other networks lured people away from AIM and the other early instant messaging services. The rise of SMS as an ubiquitous means of communication also took its toll.

“After December 15, you will no longer have access to AIM and your data will be deleted,” the company said in an email notification. “If you use an @aim.com email address, your email account will not...

Apple's Face ID Turns Android Makers Away From...

With its iPhone X debut and the introduction of Face ID, Apple has now tilted interest in the mobile industry away from under-display fingerprint recognition towards camera-based 3D sensing technologies as the ideal user authentication solution. That's according to the latest research note from respected KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

According to the new note seen by MacRumors, inquiries by Android smartphone vendors into 3D-sensing technologies have at least tripled since Apple unveiled its TrueDepth camera and Face ID technology, which replaces traditional Touch ID fingerprint recognition in the iPhone X, set to launch in November.

While under-display optical fingerprint recognition is only a spec upgrade from capacitive solutions, 3D sensing embodies a revolutionary user experience and warrants a premium on gross margin. 3D sensing not only enables facial recognition in security applications and allows users to create fun expressions like Apple's Animoji, on...

The approved new emojis will be rolled out globally on Monday, October 9th, as part of Apple’s second public beta for iOS 11.1. Users should expect to see the emojis in the official release of iOS 11.1 towards the end of October or early November. Other approved new emojis, announced in July, include a breastfeeding woman, woman with headscarf, and vomiting emojis.

Apple Doesn't Deliberately Slow Down Older...

According to software company Futuremark, Apple doesn't intentionally slow down older iPhones when it releases new software updates as a way to encourage its customers to buy new devices. MacRumors reports: Starting in 2016, Futuremark collected over 100,000 benchmark results for seven different iPhone models across three versions of iOS, using that data to create performance comparison charts to determine whether there have been performance drops in iOS 9, iOS 10, and iOS 11. The first device tested was the iPhone 5s, as it's the oldest device capable of running iOS 11. iPhone 5s, released in 2013, was the first iPhone to get a 64-bit A7 chip, and iOS 11 is limited to 64-bit devices. Futuremark used the 3DMark Sling Shot Extreme Graphics test and calculated all benchmark scores from the iPhone 5s across a given month to make its comparison. The higher the bar, the better the performance, and based on the testing, GPU performance on the iPhone 5s has remained constant from iOS 9 to...
