Apple’s Wireless Charging Could Use Your Wi-Fi...

We’ve thought for a while that Apple was working on wireless charging for the next iPhone, and a recent patent filing reinforces that. What’s surprising is that the filing suggests the possibility of using a Wi-Fi router to transmit the power, but Apple’s not in that business anymore. Or are they? Jeff Butts thinks it might be too early to sound the death knell for the Airport router, and wireless charging might be the defibrillator needed to bring the device back to life.

Rumors about an Apple-backed peer-to-peer payments system that could compete with services like Square Cash, PayPal's Venmo, and Google Wallet have been floating around for years. Those rumors still haven't amounted to anything yet, but a new report from Recode indicates that Apple is still interested and that it's in talks with banks and other "payments industry partners" about launching a peer-to-peer payments service later this year.

If launched, the service would likely fall under the Apple Pay umbrella. Right now, Apple Pay supports online and in-app payments and in-...

AWT Video Tip: Checking cellular data usage

In today’s Apple World Today video tip, we’ll show you how to find out which of your iOS apps are using the most cellular data on your iPhone or iPad.

Unless you’re on an unlimited data plan, you most likely have a limit each month in terms of the mobile data bandwidth you can use. If you exceed that limit on a regular basis and are tired of paying overage charges, you might want to look at how each app on your device is using cellular data.

Apple’s video plans span from the previously announced (and since delayed) “Carpool Karaoke” to a potential sequel to the classic R.

Laurene Powell Jobs to speak on philanthropy at Code...

It's rare when the public hears from the widow of Steve Jobs, but Laurene Powell Jobs will be speaking at next month's Code conference about her approach to philanthropy. Unlike her husband's famously well scripted and rehearsed onstage "performances," Powell Jobs will converse with California senator Kamala Harris about the work of her organization -- the Emerson Collective -- and how she feels philanthropy should benefit society as a whole.

According to a Forbes writeup earlier this year, the combination of the Laurene Powell Jobs Trust and Powell Jobs' personal fortune has an estimated net worth of $20 billion. The trust owns 2.5% of Disney, while Powell Jobs owns 4%. One would expect that she would own a larger stake in the company her late husband co-founded -- Apple -- but you'd be wrong. She owns just 0.7% of Apple.

Connected car accessory maker Automatic bought by...

Automatic, the maker of the Automatic Pro and Automatic Lite devices that link to an iPhone to track and read driving data, has been purchased by satellite radio provider SiriusXM for over $100 million. According to a blog post breaking the news, the brands will remain separate and Automatic will continue to focus on the connected car.

Automatic's product line began in 2013 with the Automatic Link. Plugged into the onboard diagnostic port that has been in most cars since 1996, the device sends drive tracking information and diagnostic reports to a connected iPhone app. Last year, the company abandoned the original Automatic Link except for minimal functions, replacing the device with two models. The Automatic Lite is similar to the original device, while the...

Apple allegedly working on peer-to-peer money...

Sending money to others for personal payments currently requires a service like Square Cash or Venmo. Apple is reportedly working on a similar peer-to-peer money transfer service as part of the Apple Pay service that would let users send money to one another quickly and with security as a primary focus.

Venmo's iOS app

Re/code says that Apple has apparently held discussions with top names in the payment industry about the service, which might launch later this year. It's also noted that Apple has talked with Visa about a prepaid debit card service that would be tied to the peer-to-peer payment transfers. Think of an Apple-branded digital debit card that could be used at retailers, letting users instantly spend money that is transferred to them without needing to deposit it into an intermediary bank account.

Bloomberg is reporting that a new version of Apple Music -- most likely embedded in iOS 11 -- will ship later this year that begins shifting the emphasis of the service from music to original video programming. The report notes that the new Apple Music service could host upwards of 10 original shows by the end of 2017.

At this point, video is available in Apple Music but it's difficult to find -- tap on the Browse button, then scroll down to "Music Videos". There you'll currently find a mishmash of videos based on featured content, top videos or new releases. There's no way to easily get the app to show you videos from your favorite genres, nor will it show items personalized for your tastes.

iOS "number" updates are usually where Apple makes major changes to its built-in applications, so it's likely that any improvements to...

Opinion: We may now be just two or three years away...

I’ve always been a keen photographer. At 14, my father bought me an old fully-manual film SLR, and my aunt gave me her old darkroom equipment, so my bedroom became a darkroom with a bed in the corner.

When the first DLSRs hit the market, I waited impatiently for them to drop below the $1000 mark. That early Nikon D70 was replaced by a D3 which I still have today. If you had suggested then that it could be just a few short years before cameraphones could replace a DSLR, I’d have laughed.

But camera technology has developed at an astonishing pace. That D3 already spends most of its time gathering dust in a drawer. My Sony a6300 compact camera delivers near-identical results in most situations. And the camera I use most on an everyday basis is my iPhone.

There are just four remaining pieces of the puzzle before an iPhone can replace a DSLR, and it looks to me like we’re just 2-3 years...

Recode says that Apple has also held talks with Visa about the possibility of creating virtual Apple prepaid debit cards. This would allow users to spend the money they get from the new peer-to-peer payments service instantly without having to wait for the money to clear in their bank account.

Jeff Benjamin, 9to5Mac:

In a previous article, posted shortly after Nvidia announced its new Pascal Mac drivers, I briefly discussed my plans to build a new Hackintosh. I’ve been planning and working on the machine for over a week, and I’m finally at the point where I can share the results of my journey.

This isn’t my first Hackintosh build, but it’s the first build where I decided to go about it without the assistance of the excellent tools over at tonymacx86. I’ve been long interested in building a Hackintosh using just the Clover EFI Bootloader, and that’s exactly what I did for this build.

Going about it this way allowed me to learn more about the process, and helped me to see that the entire premise, while tedious at times, is actually fairly straightforward. In this initial post, I’ll talk about some of my reasoning behind my hardware choices, and share some initial experiences and benchmark results.

Apple Wants To Turn Its Music App Into a One-Stop...

Jimmy Iovine, one of the heads of Apple Music, has long expressed desires to make Apple Music "an entire pop cultural experience." The company, he has previously said, will do so partly by including original video content into its music app. Now, in an interview with Bloomberg, he added that the company plans to include original shows and videos with high-profile partners such as director J.J. Abrams and rapper R. Kelly. Iovine adds, from the interview: A music service needs to be more than a bunch of songs and a few playlists. I'm trying to help Apple Music be an overall movement in popular culture, everything from unsigned bands to video. We have a lot of plans. We have the freedom, because it's Apple, to make one show, three shows, see what works, see what doesn't work until it feels good. The article also sheds light on Iovine's personality: Iovine fidgets when he talks. As his mind wanders, he takes his jacket off, then puts it back on. He frequently clutches his legs,...

Google has so many apps these days, it’s easy to forget what they all do. So, if you happened to see an update to the Trips app that you downloaded last year but didn’t use much, you’re probably wondering what’s new. Or maybe you just need a refresher on what it does.

A smart planner and city guide, Trips is meant to be the one-stop travel companion for all of your tourism needs. It pulls reservation information from Gmail, suggests places to go, and even lets you download everything for offline use. If you're a frequent traveler it's a way better option than Maps, and while the new update isn’t a huge one, it does bring a few features that might make people more apt to use it.

Apple rumored to be finalizing design of Siri-based...

Despite recent comments from Apple executives that the company has "no apparent interest in copying the Echo," Australian leak source Sonny Dickson tweeted this morning that Apple is "currently finalizing" designs for its own Amazon Echo competitor.

According to Dickson, the product will be marketed as a Siri/AirPlay device using some sort of Beats technology and powered by a variant of iOS. Amazon's Echo has become a runaway hit in the consumer electronics space, with the Alexa AI now showing up in devices made by other companies. As an example, the Ecobee4 smart thermostat -- which works with Apple's HomeKit -- will allegedly have Alexa built-in.

“Like using a lunchbox to make lunch”

Ars Technica story about Masahiro Sakurai the creator of 1992’s Kirby’s Dream Land:

Sakurai recalled how HAL Laboratory was using a Twin Famicom as a development kit at the time. Trying to program on the hardware, which combined a cartridge-based Famicom and the disk-based Famicom Disk System, was “like using a lunchbox to make lunch,” Sakurai said.

As if the limited power wasn’t bad enough, Sakurai revealed that the Twin Famicom testbed they were using “didn’t even have keyboard support, meaning values had to be input using a trackball and an on-screen keyboard.”

Google’s ingenious tool to fight patent trolls, a...

TechCrunch:

Google and Intertrust today announced the launch of PatentShield, a new program that aims to help defend startups from patent litigation — in return for a stake in those companies.

The basic idea here is to give startups that join the program ownership of a selection of patents from Google’s and Intertrust’s portfolio that they can then use as a deterrent against potential patent litigation from established players in their fields. Google is seeding the program with a selection of its own patents and Intertrust, which itself has built up a patent portfolio around media streaming, IoT, security and other areas, will also give these startups access to some of its own patents and its intellectual property team.

If a startup gets sued, it can then choose patents from the PatentShield portfolio to defend itself by countersuing its opponents.

This truly is ingenious, a terrific use of Google’s patent portfolio. The cost to Google is relatively...

Jack Dorsey on Donald Trump and destructive speech...

This is a phenomenal interview, as you might expect from the excellent Steven Levy. I was surprised to learn that Twitter was not invited to any of Trump’s tech roundtables or advisory councils.

One highlight that stands out:

Q: There have been well-publicized instances where women have been exposed to horrible treatment. What was your feeling when you understood how common it was for women like Leslie Jones to be harassed? Did you feel that was something that you failed at?

Dorsey: We recognized that the very nature of the product was giving unfair advantage to people who wanted to harass. So we needed to change the product experience. We made it a priority last year, but to be very frank and honest, we only shipped one meaningful thing all year. So our progress is not something that we are proud of.

And:

Q: Why was that? Why did you fall short?

Rumor: Apple to improve battery life in next-gen...

The current rumor has it that the next-gen iPhone’s battery will be able to get over power consumption and space-related hurdles, potentially allowing for longer battery life than ever.

Rumor has it that this year’s flagship “iPhone 8” will boast a large 2,700 mAh battery, on par with the high-end 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus.

The next-gen iPhone is said to have dimensions similar to the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, which features a 1,960 mAh capacity battery, while the iPhone 7 Plus has a 2,900 mAh battery.

It’s thought that Apple will pull this off by shrinking the parts inside its flagship next-gen handset, which is rumored to debut in September.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple plans to use a stacked logic board, called a substrate-like PCB mainboard, to allow more space inside of the “iPhone 8” chassis.

By shrinking the size of the mainboard, Apple may be able to allow for greater energy efficiency. The one-two punch of a larger...

We’ve poked fun at Samsung before for its issues with the Galaxy S7’s battery and its propensity to catch fire and/or explode.

Now, the Late Show seems to have delivered the finishing move with its mock commercial for the Samsung Galaxy S8.

In the commercial, the announcer asks one simple question: “How can we design a smartphone that won’t catch on fire?”

You’ll like the answer.

Granted, Apple’s had its own share of battery-related issues in the past, but this is a good bit of satire either way.

What to expect from Apple's Q2 2017 earnings...

Did you forget to mark your calendar for the orgy of charts and numbers that is Apple’s legally mandated quarterly release of its financial results? If so, have no fear–I remembered to mark mine for next Tuesday, May 2, when Apple will release the results in the early afternoon (Cupertino time) and then offer some of its executives up to financial analysts in an hour-long telephone call.

This is the season where Wall Street tries to intuit where Apple’s stock price will go, and those of us more focused on Apple’s products will scrape for any suggestion about how those products are selling and what might come next.

It can be easy to joke about these quarterly rituals–I’ve already done it several times, and this is only my third paragraph–but they’re vital opportunities to take a rare glimpse into Apple’s inner workings and the thinking of Apple executives about the company’s business strategies. Yes, it’s a choreographed dance, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t glean...

Spotify aiming to solve its unpaid royalties problem...

Spotify has long been the subject of discrepancies of unpaid royalties to artists, as well as the actual rates it pays. For instance, the latest RIAA report showed that the company pays artists less than half of what Apple Music pays.

Mobile Ubuntu Gamble to Fizzle Out in June


Canonical this week said that it will end its support for Ubuntu Touch phones and Ubuntu-powered tablets in June, and that it will shut down its app store at the end of this year. With Ubuntu Touch, a unified mobile OS based on Ubuntu Linux, Canonical hoped to establish a marketable alternative to the Android and iOS platforms. The news came on the heels of Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth's recent disclosure that the company had decided to drop Ubuntu's Unity desktop environment.

How Can Amazon Echo Look Possibly Succeed? It’s Easy

At first glance, the technically and logically minded person would wonder why Amazon thinks that an AI like Alexa, within the new Echo Look, peering into your bedroom and making clothing recommendations would be a hit product. But then one has to understand the psychology of the product. At that point, all becomes clear.

From the narrator: “When our engineers designed this phone, they asked one simple question: how can we design a smartphone that won’t catch on fire?” Well yeah that’s a good question.

At the Intercept, Sam Biddle explains how Uber was analyzing Unrolll.me user email traffic to gauge the health of its main competitor, Lyft. If that bothers you, the article provides instructions for deleting your Unroll.me account.

Slickwraps Retro Case protects your iPhone like it...

As a blogger who writes more than his share of reviews of iPhone cases, I get a lot of them at no cost for review purposes. That's why it's a bit surprising that the case I'm currently protecting my iPhone 7 Plus with is one I paid for. With just one look, I knew I had to open my wallet, get out the credit card, and purchase the Slickwraps Retro Case ($36.99) to adorn my iPhone.

Design

The case is actually a standard Spigen Ultra Hybrid case that has been modified with a Slickwraps print. But who cares? The point is, IT LOOKS LIKE AN ORIGINAL MAC!

Sorry about the yelling. Anyway, when a description of this case showed up in my inbox, I jumped to order the darned thing. The case is that lovely Pantone 453 beige that the earliest Macs came in, complete with the rainbow Apple logo and some...

Unfortunately, the app must be running in the foreground to receive audio, but Rogue Amoeba is already in the preliminary stages of restoring full Apple TV AirPlay functionality to Airfoil, with no receiving app required.

They have asked for reviews of other parts of the audio signal chain — amplifiers, DACs, and wireless receivers. We have a bunch in the works, and here's the first: the Advanced Mezger aptX Bluetooth Receiver ($100). Though it’s limited by Bluetooth bandwidth and USB power, the Mezger is a solid performer.

Tip of the Day: Plugging your iPhone in silently

Fortunately, it turns out there’s a handy, albeit it less than obvious way to prevent this: For whatever reason it turns out that if you simply swipe to the camera from your lock screen…

Review: Olixar X-Trio Full Cover gives your iPhone 7...

The new Product (RED) iPhone 7 is cool, and supporting charity by buying Product (RED) products, even better. But buying a new iPhone 7 mid-year ahead of what’s expected to be the biggest update in a while with iPhone 8 this fall; not such a great idea. So as an alternative to red iPhone mania, Olixar sent over its X-Trio Full Cover case that does a pretty good job of giving your iPhone a similar look on the cheap (white front not included). I’ve been using it for several weeks and I really like it.

FCC chairman plans to 'reverse the mistake...

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission will vote on May 18 to kick off a proceeding to “reverse the mistake” of the agency’s 2-year-old net neutrality rules, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said.

The rulemaking proceeding would be the first step toward repealing the regulations and reversing the agency’s 2015 decision to classify broadband as a regulated, telecom-like service.

Pai didn’t provide a lot of detail about his proposal during a speech Wednesday, but during the rulemaking, the FCC will seek public comment on how best to move forward with new net neutrality rules or guidelines, he said. The FCC is scheduled to release the text of Pai’s proposal on Thursday.

Podcast 556: Uber my dead body

Oh, Uber. Uber, Uber, Uber. When will this nightmare of a company shape up? Probably never. But we have another chance to shake our heads and sigh here on the podcast, because according to a story in the New York Times, Uber’s C.E.Bro got a polite dressing down from Tim Cook, for purposely running afoul of Apple’s App Store guidelines and then trying its pathetic best to evade detection. Faced with the threat of being removed from the App Store, Travis Kalanick immediately rolled over, but Glenn thinks the violation is serious enough that Apple should have warned users, or even given Uber an App Store timeout.

Elsewhere, Apple wants to stop mining minerals, which would be good, and attracting packs of millenials to Apple stores even if they’re not there to shop or visit the Geniuses. Which could be bad. Unless there are themed coffee drinks, for which we have several suggestions. (Call us, Angela!)
