HomePod Firmware Suggests iPhone 8 Will Be Able to...

The newest discovery found within the HomePod firmware has shed some light on the iPhone 8's facial recognition software, and how it could potentially scan a user's face even when the smartphone is laying flat on a table. Uncovered by iHelp BR, code within the firmware related to "Pearl," which is Apple's internal name for the new facial recognition system, also includes multiple references to the word "resting" alongside "unlock."

The feature was discovered to be categorized as an accessibility option, specifically called "AXRestingPearlUnlock" and "com.apple.accessibility.resting.pearl.unlock". While not an exact confirmation, the HomePod firmware discovery does corroborate a report by Bloomberg from July that said Apple was working on an...

iOS developer Guilherme Rambo‏ has discovered a reference to a 4K HDR display mode in the HomePod's firmware, lending credence to rumors of Apple testing a fifth-generation Apple TV capable of streaming 4K resolution video.

HomePod doesn't have a display, and iOS devices lack the resolution for native 4K playback, so the discovery likely pertains to the Apple TV.

Rambo also discovered strings kCADisplayModeDolby and kCADisplayModeHDR10, suggesting that a 4K Apple TV could support both the Dolby Vision and HDR10 color formats for high-dynamic-range video.

How Apple Is Putting Voices In Users' Heads --...

schwit1 shared WIRED's report on "a life-changing technology." Steven Levy spoke with Mathias Bahnmueller as he tested a new Apple sound processor that beams digital audio directly into hearing aids.
Bahnmueller suffers from hearing loss so severe that a year ago he underwent surgery to install a cochlear implant -- an electronic device in the inner ear that replaces the usual hearing mechanism. Around a million patients have undergone this increasingly mainstream form of treatment, and that's just a fraction of those who could benefit from it. (Of the 360 million people worldwide with hearing loss, about 10 percent would qualify for the surgery.) "For those who reach a point where hearing aids no longer help, this is the only solution," says Allison Biever, an audiologist in Englewood, CO who works with implant patients. "It's like restoring a signal in a radio station."

Cochlear implants bypass the usual hearing process by embedding a device in the inner ear and...

Today, they include features like push notifications and background sync. 

Apps built with Service Workers, called progressive web apps (PWAs), don’t require downloads. You just point your browser at a website, and you're in the app, which you can then add to your home screen for easier access. 

PWAs purportedly have advantages over native apps. They use service workers to fetch cached content, so they can function without a network connection, and to improve discoverability in search engines.

OpenSignal doesn’t indicate anything nefarious here, only that increased demand is slowing down those networks. Interestingly, Sprint and T-Mobile, which have offered unlimited data for years, both saw an increase in speeds: 8.6 percent for Sprint and 4.8 percent for T-Mobile.

Apple Plans To Release a Cellular-Capable Watch To...

According to Bloomberg, Apple is planning to release a version of the Apple Watch later this year that can connect directly to cellular networks, a move designed to reduce the device's reliance on the iPhone. From the report: Currently, Apple requires its smartwatch to be connected wirelessly to an iPhone to stream music, download directions in maps, and send messages while on the go. Equipped with LTE chips, at least some new Apple Watch models, planned for release by the end of the year, will be able to conduct many tasks without an iPhone in range, the people said. For example, a user would be able to download new songs and use apps and leave their smartphone at home. Intel Corp. will supply the LTE modems for the new Watch, according to another person familiar with the situation. Apple is already in talks with carriers in the U.S. and Europe about offering the cellular version, the people added. The carriers supporting the LTE Apple Watch, at least at launch, may be a limited...

randomErr shares a report from CNBC: If Apple were a foreign country, CEO Tim Cook might have considerable political clout in the United States. That's because the tech giant owns $52.6 billion in U.S. Treasury securities, which would rank it among the top 25 major foreign holders, according to estimates from the Treasury Department and Apple's SEC filings released Wednesday. Apple's stake in U.S. government securities as of June, up from $41.7 billion as of last September, puts it ahead of Israel, Mexico and the Netherlands, according to Treasury data released last month, which tracks up to May of this year. With $20.1 billion in short-term Treasury securities and $31.35 billion in long-term marketable Treasury securities, Apple still falls far below countries like China and Japan, which hold over a trillion dollars in U.S. government debt each -- which has caused considerable hand-wringing in Washington. Still, Apple is way above other big companies like Amazon, which owns less...

Obviously Apple wants to cover the widest spectrum of future glasses in a variety of known styles. Now the Financial Times is reporting that Apple engineers are mulling various forms of glasses as an accessory for the iPhone.

Apple might have one more trick up its sleeve at its annual fall event. While we’re all waiting for a brand new iPhone that will reportedly bring a brand new design, wireless charging, and AR capabilities, it seems as though Apple is also working on an LTE-enabled Apple Watch that will bring phone independence once and for all.

According to a report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, “at least some new Apple Watch models” this year will come equipped with LTE chips “planned for release by the end of the year.” That would allow users to receive notifications and phone calls without having an iPhone nearby, as well as download music and use third-party apps.

Rumor: Apple Watch Series 3 will be cellular capable

The Apple Watch Series 3 — expected in September — will be able to connect directly to cellular networks, a move designed to reduce reliance on the iPhone, according to Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter.”

Apple currently requires the smartwatch to be connected wirelessly to an iPhone to stream music, download directions in maps, and send messages while on the go. Equipped with LTE chips, at least some next gen Apple Watch models will be able to conduct many tasks without an iPhone in range, according to Bloomberg.

Rumor: Apple experimenting with various types of AR...

Apple is experimenting with various types of augmented reality (AR) glasses, according to the Financial Times (which requires a subscription). Some use their own integrated display; others work with an iPhone.

I’d bet on the latter. Apple has applied for several patents regarding AR. For instance, patent number 9,482,869 is for a “head-mounted display apparatus” for retaining a portable electronic device with display.”

Similar to patent number 8,957,835, it’s for VR goggles that would connect with an iPhone. It seems to involve connecting an iPhone (or perhaps an iPod touch) to a GoPro-ish head mount for viewing media on a private display.

Apple is more interested in AR than virtual reality (VR), because the former connects people whereas the latter is often an isolating experience involving a headset that renders the user blind to the real world. The tech...

Apple's Series Three Apple Watch to Include...

Apple's third-generation Apple Watch, set to launch later this year, will include its own LTE for a standalone cellular connection, reports Bloomberg.

With a cellular connection, the new Apple Watch models will be untethered from the iPhone, able to stream music, send messages, download apps, and connect to the internet without the need for an iPhone.

It's not clear if a standalone cellular plan will be needed for the Apple Watch, but it seems likely. According to Bloomberg, only a subset of carriers who sell the iPhone will support the Apple Watch, but in the U.S., AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile all plan to offer the LTE Apple Watch when it launches.

Intel, not Qualcomm, will supply the LTE modems for the Apple Watch.

1.3 million pounds (approximately US$1.7 million) worth of fake Apple goods have been seized by West Sussex Trading Standards of the West Sussex County Council, reports ITV News. It’s the biggest in its history.

Fake chargers, batteries, cables, headphones and adapters were seized from a warehouse in London. An investigation was launched after a charger, bought for £59 from a shop in Haywards Heath in West Sussex overheated, notes ITV News.

The customer became alarmed at how hot it became when charging her MacBook, so she contacted Trading Standards, which later found it was fake and unsafe. The trail led to another shop in Brighton and on to a warehouse in Kingston-upon-Thames.

Citing sources with knowledge of Apple's plans, Financial Times says at least one group within Apple is pushing for a pair of glasses that feature 3D camera but no screens, making the iPhone the main display, similar to Snap's Spectacles, but no final design decisions have been made.

Snap's camera-equipped screen-free Spectacles

To make the show without James Corden as the focal character, the trio decided to use interesting celebrity pairings to keep people's attention.

It's all about who you would like to see with each other. And therefore when you get certain pairings, like Billy Eichner and Metallica, that's a really fascinating thing.

Study Finds AT&T and Verizon Have Slower LTE...

In its semi-annual State of Mobile Networks report this week, OpenSignal claims that both AT&T and Verizon have experienced a decline in 4G LTE speeds since each carrier reintroduced an unlimited data plan in February. OpenSignal blames the slowdown on an increase in data demand now that caps have been removed.

From April through June, AT&T's average LTE download speed was 12.92 Mbps, while Verizon averaged 14.91 Mbps, according to crowdsourced data from thousands of users with the OpenSignal app for iOS or Android.

By comparison, OpenSignal's last report measured average LTE speeds for AT&T and Verizon at 13.86 Mbps and 16.89 Mbps respectively, based on crowdsourced data collected from 169,683 users with the...

Facebook Takes Another Stab at Neutralizing Fake News

New 'The Rock x Siri' Ads Highlights Siri...

Apple today uploaded two additional videos in its series that stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Apple's personal assistant Siri, both of which are meant to show off Siri's range of functionality.

In the first video, The Rock uses Siri to activate the HomeKit-connected lights in his gym, and in the second, he speaks in Mandarin, demonstrating Siri's ability to work with multiple languages.

Support for multiple languages is one of the main differentiating factors between Siri and other voice-based AI assistants like Alexa and Cortana.

Both of today's videos are new, but look similar to scenes that were in the original "The Rock x Siri Dominate the Day" spot, which is three and a half minutes in length. In the first ad, The Rock is seen using Siri throughout an entire day as he commandeers a plane, cooks a meal in a high-end restaurant, and ends up in space.

Rumor: Wistron Corp. to produce the next-generation...

Taiwan-based contract electronics maker Wistron Corp. is preparing to expand of its production base in India to produce the next-generation iPhone SE, reports Focus Taiwan, quoit unnamed “sources in the South Asian country.”

The tech giant has reportedly set its sights on the growing Indian market by pushing for shipments of the smartphone model with the goal of doubling the iPhone's market share in the country over the next five years. The sources told Focus Taiwan that Apple has signed up Wistron to assemble the new iPhone SEs after the Taiwanese firm started to produce the model in India in May, targeting markets around the world.

Getting a foothold in India has been a challenge for Apple. The company has opened its retail stores in a number of countries around the world, but not in India. The country has restrictive real estate investment laws for foreign companies.

Apple retail establishments are the new mall anchor...

Apple’s retail stores are turning into the new mall anchor store, a role once held by department stores, because they draw lots of foot traffic, which also benefits the smaller stores.

In the U.S., there are roughly about 140 million customers with iPhones, estimated Gene Munster, a partner in Loup Ventures in an interview with TheStreet, and those millions usually need to go to a bricks-and-mortar store for service.

"An Apple Store in a mall is equivalent to staying alive at a mall," he added.

The presence of an Apple Store in a mall also increases the value of a mall and allows mall owners to raise square-footage rates for other tenants. Robin Abrams, a commercial real estate executive in New York City, told TheStreet that hedge funds evaluating malls will factor in whether or not...

According to the Korean news site, etnews, Samsung Display will operate seven of its sixth generation flexible OLED lines on full scale this month to prepare for the “iPhone 8.” The next gen phone is expected to debut in September, although supplies will probably (and as usual) be constrained.

The article says its production capacity of panels for Apple smartphones will increase sevenfold from 15,000 panels per month from last year to 105,000 panels per month this year. If etnews and other reports are correction, the next generation smartphone will be the first to use OLED tech.

As we enter the season of iPhone production ramp-up stories, news out of Apple's supply chain today reports that Samsung Display is gearing up to operate seven of its next-generation OLED lines at full capacity in August, all of which are dedicated to Apple and the iPhone 8.

According to ETNews, the OLED ramp-up follows a series of inspections that Samsung made on each of the seven lines over the past few weeks in preparation for Apple's much-anticipated OLED-only iPhone 8. Samsung Display is the only supplier of OLED screens for the 2017 iPhone, and the manufacturer is said to see an increase from 15,000 panels per month to 105,000 panels per month following the full scale production increase.

Apple is hoping to build its share of the Indian smartphone market by giving Wistron the majority of the orders for the new iPhone SE, which is said to ship in the first quarter of 2018.

Wistron was targeted as a supplier for the new iPhone SE due to its existing status as a manufacturer for the current iPhone SE, which it officially began assembling in India in May at a plant in Bangalore. That same plant will be the location of assembly for the new iPhone SE as well, and the sources made an unlikely claim that Wistron will target India first when it begins shipping...

Smartphone use has radical impact on mental health...

San Diego State University professor of psychology and author Jean Twenge has claimed that smartphone usage is having a radical impact on both the behavior and mental health of U.S. teenagers.

The arrival of the smartphone has radically changed every aspect of teenagers’ lives, from the nature of their social interactions to their mental health […] Rates of teen depression and suicide have skyrocketed since 2011. It’s not an exaggeration to describe iGen as being on the brink of the worst mental-health crisis in decades. Much of this deterioration can be traced to their phones.

Far from being the usual generalized complaint about teens spending too much time staring at their screens, Dr Twenge has plenty of hard data to support her contentions – made in The Atlantic, the magazine in which Laurene Powell Jobs recently bought a majority stake...

Strategy Analytics: Apple Watch sales placed around...

While Apple has never released exact numbers as to how many Apple Watch units have been sold, Strategy Analytics puts the number around 30 million.

This puts it behind Xiaomi in the wearables market, but definitely in respectable territory.

“Apple shipped 2.8 million wearables worldwide in Q2 2017, growing 56 percent annually from 1.8 million in Q2 2016,” said Strategy Analytics Director Cliff Raskind. “Apple has for now lost its wearables leadership to Xiaomi, due to a lack of presence in the sizable fitness band subcategory.”

Raskind added that this could change with the introduction of the Apple Watch Series 3, which is expected to ship this fall.

“The rumored upcoming Watch Series 3 launch with enhanced health tracking could prove to be a popular smartwatch model and enable Apple to reclaim the top wearables spot later this year,” he said.

According to the firm, Apple shipped 2.8 million units during the second quarter of 2017, compared to...

Apple files for patent for remotely updating a...

A 2016 Apple filling with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) showed that the company is urging the FCC should “recognize solutions such as the MFi [Made for iPhone] hearing aid platform as alternatives for hearing aid compatibility compliance.” And the tech company apparently has other plans along these lines, having filed for a patent (number 2017022341) for “remotely updating a hearing aid profile.”

It would allow users to replace a current hearing aid profile stored in a hearing aid. In one embodiment, the hearing aid profile is updated by sending a hearing aid profile update request to a hearing aid profile service, receiving the updated healing aid profile from the hearing aid profile service, and replacing the current hearing aid profile in the hearing aid with the updated hearing aid profile.

I’m pretty sure Apple isn’t planning to go into the hearing aid business, but is more interested in having such aids work in conjunction with iPhones. However,...

Yet another interesting tidbit came out of the leaked HomePod firmware today. Following earlier details such as design and face recognition information, Portuguese news site iHelp has found code that seemingly indicates the iPhone 8 will be capable of 4K video at 60 frames per second with both the front and rear cameras…

The code mentions a device with support for 4K video at 60 FPS. The device is given both a “front” and “back” qualifier, suggesting that both cameras will 4K video at 60 FPS.

Currently, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus support 4K video with the rear camera only, but only at 30 FPS. Meanwhile, the front camera is limited to 1080p.

The HomePod firmware also mentions the front and rear cameras as supporting Apple’s new Apple’s new HEVC file type, which greatly reduces file size. The HEVC file format can cut file sizes in half, which could be crucial with 4K content.

HomePod Firmware Suggests iPhone 8 May Record 4K...

We've learned a lot about the upcoming iPhone 8 thanks to HomePod firmware that Apple accidentally released to the public, and the latest detail highlights what we can expect from the front and rear cameras in the device.

Uncovered by Brazilian site iHelp BR, code within the firmware seems to hint at front and rear cameras capable of recording video in 4K at 60 frames per second.

Currently, the rear camera in the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus is able to capture 4K video at 30 frames per second, while the front-facing camera is limited to 1080p recording. Though these specifications are mentioned, it's not yet entirely clear if this is functionality that we can expect to see in the iPhone 8, but the improved frame rate could be useful for the augmented reality applications coming in iOS 11.

From leaks earlier this week, we've...

Apple's Adoption Of HEVC Will Drive A Massive...

An anonymous reader shares a report: For the last 10 years, H.264/AVC has been the dominant video codec used for streaming but with Apple adopting H.265/HEVC in iOS 11 and Google heavily supporting VP9 in Android, a change is on the horizon. Next year the Alliance for Open Media will release their AV1 codec which will again improve video compression efficiency even further. But the end result is that the codec market is about to get very fragmented, with content owners soon having to decide if they need to support three codecs (H.264, H.265, and VP9) instead of just H.264 and with AV1 expected to be released in 2019. As a result of what's take place in the codec market, and with better quality video being demanded by consumers, content owners, broadcasters and OTT providers are starting to see a massive increase in encoding costs. New codecs like H.265 and VP9 need 5x the servers costs because of their complexity. Currently, AV1 needs over 20x the server costs. The mix of SD, HD...

CIRP: we love our big-screen iPhones

Larger screens lead to higher iPhone sales, according to a new report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners. The research firm estimates that Apple’s domestic installed base has 141 million units as of this quarter; that’s up from 124 million in the year-ago quarter.

CIRP says the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus account for 34% of the U.S. market with 48 million units in sales. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus account for 39 million units. 

Larger screens prove most popular with the 6 Plus, 6s Plus, and 7 Plus accounting for 53 million units, says CIRP. The year-old iPhone SE saw just 6% growth in the U.S. installed base.
