Samsung Explains Note7 Failure, Promises to Do Better


Samsung Electronics on Monday announced that it has developed new quality assurance protocols to ensure that it won't have a repeat of the catastrophic issues that plagued its Galaxy Note7 handsets. The company last fall issued a universal recall after several of the devices caught fire or exploded. In one incident, a Southwest Airlines flight had to be evacuated in Louisville, Kentucky, after a Samsung Galaxy Note7 caught fire and produced thick smoke on an aircraft.

AWT News Update: January 23, 2017

Photo from Instagram user emfedor83

  • This Monday turned out to be rather eventful, with updates to all of Apple's operating systems, word of a mysterious Bluetooth/NFC device going through the FCC certification process, and news about an iPhone 7 Plus that went for a long swim in a very cold river and lived!
  • The watchOS 3.1.3 update might be the first update a lot of Watch owners have successfully installed since watchOS 3 first arrived
  • What could a mysterious Apple device with model number A1846 be? We think we have an idea
  • That iPhone 7 Plus of yours is probably much more waterproof than you think it is, with an unplanned test in a frozen-over Russian river showing just how hardy it is

If Apple is working on in-house wireless charging,...

Apple is reportedly working on long-range charging that allows multiple devices to charge anywhere within range of around 20 feet. One report had the company teaming up with Energous to use its WattUp system for its plans. However, an investor's note from Copperfield Research says this isn’t so, and that Apple plans to use its own in-house-developed wireless charging tech.

The research group notes that Apple has filed more than 16 patent applications covering aspects of inductive charging, which is the magnetic coil based wireless charging used in Samsung phones and Apple Watches (WATT’s technology uses RF waves.) The Apple patent portfolio covers both the design and manufacturing of coils, as well as transmitters and receivers. What’s more, Apple’s engineering focus in its patent filings explicitly incorporates inductive charging into handsets. In December Apple filed...

Apple Watch, Apple TV also get the update love today

To go along with the fresh iOS 10.2.1 and macOS Sierra 10.12.3 updates today, Apple also rolled out updates for tvOS and watchOS. watchOS 3.1.3 is the first update since 3.1.1 hit the streets back in December -- I could never personally get watchOS 3.1.1 to install on my Watch, so it will be interesting to see if the update I'm doing right now succeeds. 

The watchOS update can only be installed through the Watch app on the iPhone, and is found by tapping on General > Software Update. You'll need to have your iPhone nearby throughout the update, and the Watch must be plugged into a charger and have at least 50% battery life remaining.

tvOS 10.1.1 looks like it's a maintenance update with few differences from 10.1, which was released in December. If you don't have your fourth-generation Apple TV set up to do automatic updates, you'll need to go into Settings > System > Software Update to download and install the new tvOS.

The US Press Corps vs. Trump: A Teachable Moment


Life is about negotiation. We negotiate our relationships -- including marriage, which is a contract that many don't take seriously. We negotiate our jobs, and we negotiate our interactions with our families. Those who are good at this tend to have relatively happy lives. While they don't get everything they might want, they get more than most. When things go badly, they degrade into wars, and both sides lose. That is what was in the front of my mind last week, when I read the idiotic open letter to President Trump from the U.S. Press Corps.

According to the Nikkei Asian Review, Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou said “Apple is willing to invest in the facility together” because it needs display panels for its products. The plant could create 30,000 to 50,000 jobs.

But Gou said U.S.-made iPhones would likely cost more than those produced at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou, China facility, which churns out more than 100 million iPhones per year.

Deciding between desktop Macs and laptop MacBooks can be challenging — you typically get more computer for your money with desktops, but notebooks aren’t anchored down to one location. Managing two Macs is getting easier with features like automatic software updates and iCloud Drive syncing Desktop and Documents folders across machines, but using one Mac is often easier to manage and more affordable.

My own setup has shifted over the years from laptop only to both desktop and laptop to desktop only. I’ve found that I’m most productive and comfortable when using a desktop with a large display and a dedicated mouse and keyboard, but I also benefit from being able to take my work out of the office.

“If US state governments are willing to provide these terms, and we calculate and it is cheaper than shipping from China or Japan, then why wouldn’t Sharp build a factory in the US?" said Gou.

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple will replace existing Touch ID technology with optical fingerprint readers, a change that could arrive as soon as this year, as Apple is expected introduce a full-screen OLED iPhone model this fall.

What’s more, he says Apple is developing advanced biometric security technologies, including facial recognition. Kuo predicts that Apple will turn to optical type fingerprint sensing technology capable of accepting readings through OLED panels without need for capacitive charge components. These "under panel" systems allow for a completely uniform screen surface, an aesthetic toward which the smartphone industry is trending, notes AppleInsider

Chances that this will happen (IMHO): 80%. Apple has filed patents for...

Well-connected KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told investors to expect Apple to make big changes in order to make the new OLED displays work in the company’s next iPhone. Kuo expects to see a redesigned 3D Touch system since the existing pressure sensors would be incompatible with a flexible display panel, with the company switching to a “film sensor” that is more sensitive to the amount of pressure being applied to the screen. He also…

Apple Inc: A pre-mortem

The linked article is a detailed criticism of Apple, and ends with this quote from Phil Schiller, from his appearance on John Gruber’s WWDC Talk Show, back in June of 2015:

We don’t need to be told how great we are, and how big we are. It’s not about that, and we don’t want it to become about that. It’s not about P/Es, and it’s not about market value. I mean, sure, the finance team has to worry about that. But for the rest of us, it’s about: Are we making the best product? Do people love what we do? Is it changing lives? And if it isn’t, then beat us up until it is.

Take some time to read the whole piece. There are some common themes (notably, the way Apple approaches UX and content discovery), and the sense is that the author is truly trying to help spot problems, rather than (as the title suggests), point to Apple’s inevitable doom.

Wistron reportedly to be first choice for...

Apple has chosen Wistron to be the first original equipment manufacturer (OEM)  in India for this year’s iPhones, while Foxconn Electronics and other makers will become second OEMs if demand increases, reports DigiTimes. 

Wistron has purportedly expanded smartphone production capacity in Kunshan, eastern China, and in India. Foxconn is the world’s largest electronics contractor manufacturer and is based in Taiwan. Wistron, also based in Ttaiwan, is an original design manufacturer.

As Apple gears up to begin manufacturing iPhones in India as part of a deal to open retail stores in the country, it’s being reported that its main assembler – Foxconn – will not be the lead supplier. Instead, a company with existing smartphone manufacturing facilities in the country, Wistron, is said to have been selected by Apple as its primary supplier in India.

It’s not the first time we’ve heard iPhone-related rumors about Wistron …

Taiwan-based Apple supplier, Foxconn, is reportedly considering a joint investment with Apple for more than$7 billion for an automated display facility in the United States. The production site would eventually create 30,000 to 50,000 jobs, CEO Terry Gou told the press, according to Nikkei.

While American manufacturing is typically more expensive, he claimed that growing demand for larger display panels made U.S. production a better option than importing parts from China. In addition to the proposed display facility, Gou said Foxconn plans a new molding facility in the U.S., with the state of Pennsylvania a possible site following investment discussions with local officials.

Qualcomm’s official comment on Apple’s $1B lawsuit

On Friday, we reported on Apple’s billion dollar Qualcomm lawsuit.

Qualcomm has since released this official comment:

“While we are still in the process of reviewing the complaint in detail, it is quite clear that Apple’s claims are baseless. Apple has intentionally mischaracterized our agreements and negotiations, as well as the enormity and value of the technology we have invented, contributed and shared with all mobile device makers through our licensing program. Apple has been actively encouraging regulatory attacks on Qualcomm’s business in various jurisdictions around the world, as reflected in the recent KFTC decision and FTC complaint, by misrepresenting facts and withholding information.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey explains @POTUS account snafu

There was a bit of a snafu on Friday, as people found themselves following both the @POTUS account (the official account of the President of the United States) and the @POTUS44 account (the account specific to the 44th administration).

This would typically not be that big a deal, just unfollow the account you don’t want to follow, but clearly these are not normal times, and this issue rose to the CEO level.

Regardless of how you feel about the story notability, the thread Jack Dorsey started is an interesting read, for the comments on this specific situation and the details on @POTUS transition.

Foxconn considers $7bn US display facility with Apple

Debbie Wu, Nikkei Asian Review:

Key iPhone assembler Hon Hai Precision Industry is mulling a joint investment with Apple topping $7 billion for a highly automated display facility in the U.S., Chairman Terry Gou said Sunday.

Note that Hon Hai Precision Industry, Ltd, trades as Foxconn. They are one and the same.

And:

“Apple is willing to invest in the facility together because they need the [panels] as well,” Gou told reporters after the company’s annual year-end party in the Nankang district of Taipei. The U.S. production site eventually would create 30,000 to 50,000 jobs, the Taiwanese tycoon said.

And:

In addition to the proposed display facility, Gou said Foxconn plans a new molding facility in the U.S., with the state of Pennsylvania a possible site following investment discussions with local officials...

Macs remain the most reliable computers with less...

Apple’s Macs are more expensive to buy than PCs but IBM says they come with less problems according to RESCUECOM's Annual 2017 Computer Reliability Report.

"Every Mac we buy is in fact continuing to make and save IBM money," says Fletcher Previn, vice president of Workplace as a Service at IBM.

Apple's high reliability may be due to the durability of its components, providing a lower computer repair rate, and the complimentary tech support that comes with most products. The annual RESCUECOM 2017 Computer Reliability Report shows that Apple is leading the pack for computer reliability, while continuing to hold a large U.S. market share.

Samsung remains high for reliability, receiving little impact from the exploding Galaxy smartphones debacle, according to RESCUECom, a computer repair and tech support company. Lenovo products take the number four spot for computer reliability. 

In the last quarter of 2016, Microsoft launched the Surface Studio, touting...

Rumor: iPhone 8 to receive OLED display, updated 3D...

The current rumors are in and according to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new OLED iPhone will use a flexible display panel, which will likely allow it to curve around the sides of the main chassis. However, this makes it incompatible with the existing 3D Touch pressure sensors seen in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7.

As a result, the next-gen iPhone will switch from a ‘FBCB sensor to a film sensor’, offering higher sensitivity and a wider range of 3D Touch pressure levels.

While OLED panels tend to be more fragile than LCD displays, Apple is said to be reinforcing the 3D Touch sensor with a metal structural part to offer additional support. The recently-published KGI note doesn’t state whether the support would be externally visible and it’s that that this will be an internal component.

Apple’s new flagship iPhone, currently being dubbed the ‘iPhone 8’, is expected to launch in the fall. Many sources indicate the device will be a major upgrade from the iPhone 7...

Apple settles patent infringement lawsuit with e-...

Apple has reached a settlement ending E-Watch’s claims that the company is infringing two patents related to cellphone camera technology, according to a document filed in Texas federal court on Friday.

In a three-page joint motion to dismiss, E-Watch and Apple told U.S. Magistrate Judge Roy S. Payne that they have reached a settlement ending San Antonio-based e-Watch’s claims, reports Law360. E-Watch filed several identical infringement complaints against some of the biggest names in electronics in December 2013, including Apple, Nokia, and Sony. It claimed their camera phones, including Apple’s iPhone 4S, violated its patented system, which does things such as capture and transmit images via camera phones.

Meitu selfie app apparently collecting, transmitting...

The good news is that the Meitu app adds some cool selfie editing tools, allowing you to pretty much transform your selfie pictures into nifty anime characters.

The bad news is that the app is apparently sending back as much private information as it can to a Chinese source.

The MeituPic app, launched in 2013, soared to the top of the Chinese app charts. It was rebranded as “Meitu” in 2016 and works by taking a selfie, smoothing a person’s skin, adding virtual makeup and a number of other effects.

Meitu then asks for your phone’s location, Wi-Fi connection information, time zone, local IP address, SIM card number, whether a phone is jailbroken, and, on Android devices, the unique identity number (IMEI). This data is seemingly being sent back to China.

“Meitu’s sole purpose for collecting the data is to optimise app performance, its effects and features and to better understand our consumer engagement with in-app advertisements,” a statement from the...

Up to three-quarters of 9to5Mac readers think Apple should switch from Lightning to USB-C in the next iPad. Some 39% think the company should do it regardless, while a further 35% say Apple should make the switch if it does it for iPhones also.

However, a quarter of readers think Apple should stick with Lightning, at least for now, citing the slightly larger size and a less robust port as drawbacks of USB-C.

We previously discussed whether Apple would switch from Lightning to USB-C in future iPhones, with the majority of readers expecting this to happen this year or next …

Putting teeth into enforcing Internet of Things...

The Internet of Things (IoT) has a bad rap these days. As billions of devices, like DVRs and webcams, ship to consumers worldwide, no government or industry organization has any real power to ensure that the devices have proper security and an upgrade path to patch flaws. That’s not new in the computer and consumer electronics worlds. But the IoT makes hackable devices in fixed locations attached to high-speed broadband an incredibly desirable target for security agencies and criminal gangs to use as armies of bots.

While some IoT devices are expensive, like a $200 Nest camera, those are outliers. The vast majority of gear being shipped is already deep in a race to the bottom. The makers of cheap hardware don’t typically put security at the top of their priority list, nor have much compulsion to offer software upgrades for security indefinitely—or even...
