Apple unveils smart home experiences in its retail...

Megan Rose Dickey, TechCrunch:

Unless you’ve had a chance to try some Apple HomeKit products in someone’s home or apartment, it can be hard to understand how it all works. In order to help with that, Apple has unveiled interactive HomeKit experiences in 46 of its retail stores worldwide.

Now, when you go into Apple’s new retail stores, you’ll be able to use the Home app from either an Apple Watch, iPhone or iPad to control devices like the Phillips Hue light bulb, the Hunter ceiling fan and many others. If you tap to the lower the shades in the living room, for example, you’ll see the shades lower in the house shown on the screen.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has released its seventh EFF’s seventh annual “Who Has Your Back” report, which digs into the ways many technology companies are getting the message about user privacy in this era of unprecedented digital surveillance. Apple received four out of a possible five stars, but that’s down one star from the 2016 report.

This is Apple’s sixth year in Who Has Your Back, and it has adopted a number of industry best practices, including publishing a transparency report, requiring a warrant for content, and publishing its guidelines for law enforcement requests, notes the EFF. Apple promises to inform users before disclosing their data to the government, has a published policy of requesting judicial review of all National Security Letters, and explicitly states that third parties are forbidden from allowing Apple user data to be used for surveillance purposes....

Interview with Apple’s third co-founder, Ron Wayne

Motherboard:

Ronald Wayne lives in a little house in the town of Pahrump, Nevada. The 83-year-old designer and engineer was Apple’s original third co-founder, though nowadays he is perhaps best known as the unlucky guy who sold his 10 percent stake of the company for $800 just 12 days after it was incorporated in 1976. Today, it’s estimated that his shares would have been worth $67 billion.

Fascinating interview. My favorite response:

Q: What Apple products do you use now?

A: I have never owned an Apple product in my life, and I didn’t even have a computer until the mid 90s. What would I do with it? If you say “anything you want,” I’d come across the table at you. I had to have a reason. It popped up in the mid 90s when a friend asked to write him a short story and I delivered to him on a typewriter. So I had someone cobble a computer together for me and it just had basic internet and (Corel’s) WordPerfect on it. And...

Windows Phone dies today

Tom Warren, The Verge:

Microsoft is killing off Windows Phone 8.1 support today, more than three years after the company first introduced the update. The end of support marks an end to the Windows Phone era, and the millions of devices still running the operating system.

While most have accepted that the death of Windows Phone occurred more than a year ago, AdDuplex estimates that nearly 80 percent of all Windows-powered phones are still running Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 8, or Windows Phone 8.1. All of these handsets are now officially unsupported, and only 20 percent of all Windows phones are running the latest Windows 10 Mobile OS.

Reminds me of a funeral parade Microsoft threw for the iPhone, back in the day. Karma, baby.

Apple retail stores offering HomeKit smart home...

TechCrunch reports that Apple has launched HomeKit smart home experiences at its retail stores. HomeKit is a framework that allows control of compatible home automation devices through iOS and Siri.

Stores with The Avenue interactive window display will offer an interactive experience where device users can use Home to control smart home devices including light bulbs, ceiling fans, and window blinds. Apple stores that don’t have The Avenue will still feature a HomeKit experience but won’t have the interactivity.

So what’s The Avenue? It’s inspired by the window displays along a boulevard that dynamically change with the season. Avenue walls are interactive themed “windows” where Apple’s products and services come to life, from music, to creativity, apps, photography and more.

Sarah Perez, TechCrunch:

Siri remains the most popular virtual assistant with 41.4 million monthly active users in the U.S., according to a new report from measurement firm Verto Analytics out this morning, but it has seen a 15 percent decline since last year – or 7.3 million monthly users. In addition, the study found that engagement with Siri has also dropped by nearly half during this period, from 21 percent to 11 percent.

Meanwhile, Amazon Alexa usage has been skyrocketing – jumping 325 percent in monthly active users – that is, from 0.8 million to 2.6 million monthly users, as its user engagement also increased from 10 percent to 22 percent during the same time frame.

Cortana has seen an increase as well, growing from 0.2 million monthly users in the U.S. to 0.7 million, or a 350 percent increase. Its user engagement tripled, from 19 percent to 60 percent.

Apple ramps up ambitions in pre-paid smartphone...

Colin Gibbs, FierceWireless:

Apple began to pursue the prepaid market more aggressively in 2016, as the market research firm gap intelligence noted in September, and that pursuit has only grown more ambitious over the last year. The iPhone’s prepaid retail channel placements more than doubled from the second quarter of 2016 to the second quarter of 2017, growing from 15 SKUs to 46 SKUs, and they increased 35% from the first quarter of this year to the second quarter, according to fresh data from the San Diego-based firm.

And:

Meanwhile, Apple secured a new prepaid distribution deal through Costco in the second quarter, and it increased prepaid retail placements at AT&T (up 200% quarter over quarter) and Best Buy (up 125% quarter over quarter), according to gap intelligence. The iPhone has seen 15 new retail placements across five prepaid carriers recently, gap intelligence said.

If you’ve had problems with the back cover detaching from your first-gen Apple Watch, Apple has extended its program to offer a second year of free repair coverage for the issue. In addition, a service document shows that this program has been extended to three years

Per the document:

Apple has determined that under certain conditions on some Apple Watch (1st generation) devices the back cover may separate from the watch case. Apple will service eligible devices free of charge. Apple will authorize coverage for three (3) years from the date of purchase.

All four models are covered, from the Sport through Watch and Hermés to the Edition.

Apple Store employees have been instructed not to perform any diagnostics on the wearable beyond a simple visual inspection to determine that the back cover is detached is sufficient.

This isn’t the first time Apple has extended free Apple Watch repair coverage to three year and the commpany did so back in April...

The notebook travel ban may be lifted in a relatively short period of time.

The Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday said if security measures are increased at the airports in coming days and weeks, the restriction will be removed.

Back in March, the United States banned electronic devices larger than a smartphone from the cabins of flights coming to the U.S. from 10 airports in eight countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Officials feared that the devices could be used to smuggle explosives on board.

The electronics ban remains in effect for U.S.-bound flights from airports in Cairo, Egypt; Casablanca, Morocco; and Jeddah and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Earlier this month, the ban was lifted for passengers arriving from Instanbul, Turkey; Doha, Qatar; Amman, Jordan, Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The lifting of the ban following airports’ and airlines’ heightening of security measures on their end.

Apple is granted a patent for ‘coverglass fracture...

Future iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches (and perhaps Mac laptops) may tell you when their display gets tiny, perhaps imperceptible (to your eyes) cracks. And the device could also give Apple some info about the damage. The company has been granted a patent (number 9,703,325) for “coverglass fracture detection.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes that its portable electronic devices are built to withstand any number of stresses and strains caused by daily use. The company realizes that, due to the portable nature of these devices, they’re likely to be subjected to drops and impacts.

While various ways of reinforcing and strengthening these devices to account for these types of events have been developed, certain portions of the devices can still remain quite susceptible to breakage and/or degradation. In particular, the display cover or coverglass portion of a portable electronic device can be an area in which damage is likely when the portable electronic device is...

Man who says his iPhone 5 overheated, burned him,...

A man who sued Apple, claiming his overheated iPhone 5 burned his arm badly, has to turn over the smartphone to the Cupertino, California-based company so they can examine it if he wants to pursue his damages claim against the company, reports the National Post.

In dismissing the novel challenge from Matthew Riddell, the Ontario Court of Appeal found no reason to interfere with a lower court who agreed Apple should be able to inspect the phone. Riddell launched a $25,000 lawsuit in small claims court against Apple Canada claiming his iPhone 5 overheated, causing severe burns to his right arm. Apple asked to inspect the phone but he refused.

In November 2015, a small-claims judge ordered him to turn over the iPhone 6 to the tech giant for examination ahead of a hearing. The...

External Link: Siri Usage and Engagement Declining

A report by Verto Analytics says that while Siri remains the most popular virtual assistant in the United States, it’s quickly losing ground to Amazon's Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana. Siri's total user base declined by 15 percent over the past year, and engagement has dropped by half during that same time period. Meanwhile, Alexa has seen a 325 percent surge in monthly users and a doubling of engagement. Microsoft's Cortana has seen a 350 percent increase in monthly users and a tripling of user engagement. Perhaps Apple hopes that a dedicated Siri device like the HomePod will turn the tide.

Touch ID vs Face ID

Rene Ritchie:

Touch ID isn’t a feature. It’s a solution to a problem that can potentially be solved in a variety of other ways. Including Face ID.

I have no doubt that Apple’s been working on an advanced Face ID system for many years. Clearly a 3D recognition system would be much better than what’s on the market now, but it would need to be as convenient and secure as Touch ID in order to work for the masses. If there’s ever a time that I need to type in my passcode because Face ID failed to recognize me in a low light or dark setting, it failed.

I’m not opposed to Face ID at all. I’m opposed to taking a step back. I hope that doesn’t happen.

Taking HomeKit outdoors: Hands-on with the iDevices...

When most of us think of Apple's HomeKit home automation framework, we think about controlling devices inside the home. Sure, you may have some outdoor lights that are within range of your Wi-Fi network that you've added, but for the most part a lot of outdoor electric accessories are still controlled the old-fashioned way: with a manual switch. iDevices is shipping the new Outdoor Switch (US$75.62 through Amazon Affiliate Link) to open the great outdoors to HomeKit automation.

Design

As you'd expect from an electrical device that must work in all weather conditions, the Outdoor Switch is armored in thick polycarbonate, has a silicone-covered external switch for manual use, and has a cable with extensive stress relief and a watertight design. 

The Outdoor Switch is meant to be plugged into a outdoor circuit that's protected by a...

AWT TV Episode 14: July 10, 2017

Welcome to AWT TV, a weekly show featuring Steve Sande, Dennis Sellers and Marty Edwards of Apple World Today. Each week we'll discuss what's happened in the world of Apple, talk about new apps and accessories, maybe even have a demonstration or two of the latest software. Be sure to subscribe to the Apple World Today video channel on YouTube.

This week, it's just Steve and Marty, but we have a lot to talk about as usual. 

Steve has had some gradually worsening issues with his late 2015 27-inch 5K iMac, so he finally (before just wiping the machine) called Apple Support. He was impressed with the support tech and all she tried to do, although he was able to get the machine back to normal condition by doing a clean install of macOS Sierra.

Barron’s is claiming that Apple still hasn’t finalized its authentication plans for the iPhone 8, and has ‘just weeks’ to decide whether or not to include a Touch ID module embedded into the display.

“Apple continues to struggle with the workaround for the fingerprint sensor,” writes Hargreaves, “This increases the potential that the new OLED iPhone could be delayed, or ship without a fingerprint sensor, either of which could increase risk to unit sales and mix for the cycle.”

The report even suggests that the flagship phone could launch without support for Apple Pay …

Study: Siri remans the most popular digital...

Verto, an app analytics company, saysthat while Apple’s Siri remains the most popular intelligent assistant, fewer people are using it.

Verto’s research found that while Siri is still the top-ranking personal assistant app based on number of unique monthly users, between May 2016 and May 2017, Siri’s active user base declined with 7.3 million monthly users (nearly 15% of its total).

According to the research group, user engagement with Siri has also dropped significantly over the same time period. The digital assistant’s “Stickiness Index” (a metric that quantifies engagement by comparing daily users to monthly users) dropped by nearly half – from 21% to 11%.  According to Verto, phone-based personal assistant apps, such as Siri and S-Voice, are slowly falling in popularity, with one exception: navigation and maps.

“Despite all the hype, AI-driven personal assistant apps have yet to gain a...

The service policy is applicable to Sport, Edition, and Hermès models of the first gen Apple smartwatch, even if the device's limited one-year warranty or extended AppleCare coverage has elapsed, notes MacRumors

Affected customers can call an Apple Store and schedule a Genius Bar appointment, or visit an...

SureCall, a cell phone signal booster manufacturer, has introduced its Fusion2Go 2.0 in-vehicle cellular signal booster. It boosts voice and 4G LTE data signals for all North American cell carriers to reduce dropped and missed calls, and increase data speeds while on the road, according to Hongtao Zhan, CEO of SureCall. 

The bi-directional amplifier system rebroadcasts cellular signal throughout the vehicle, and its built-in safeguards eliminate interference to cell towers. Setup has been simplified with its smaller footprint (no cradle or docking station required), and the removal of the attenuation dials. 

A new low-profile high-gain external antenna with a magnetic base is included. Covered by a three-year warranty, the Fusion2Go 2.0 is available at a manufacturer’s retail price of $379.

Samsung has its fingers in nearly every segment of the tech industry you can think of, so it’s hardly shocking that the company has its own line of smartwatches. But this might surprise you: some of them are compatible with your iPhone. 

It’s true! Just like Android Wear before it, Samsung’s Gear S3 and S2 smartwatches eventually gained iPhone compatibility, giving Apple phone users another wearable option that isn’t the Apple Watch. And Samsung’s watches are pretty impressive, too, with bright, rounded touchscreen faces wrapped by a rotating bezel that you can use to navigate the UI.
