iPhone X offered in Space Gray and Silver only, no...

Whilst the iPhone 8 has a new gold finish, the $999 Apple iPhone X is only being offered in two colors … when it ships on November 3rd. Fans of gold or rose gold will be disappointed as the new ‘futuristic’ flagship iPhone is only sold in Space Gray and Silver finishes.

Until today, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus had a plethora of color options (six total). The new iPhone X cuts that down to just two.

More details on the Apple Watch Series 3

Apple has introduced Apple Watch Series 3, adding built-in cellular. It allows users to stay connected, make calls, receive texts and more, even without an iPhone nearby. 

The third-generation Apple Watch boasts intelligent coaching features, water resistance to 50 meters and a new barometric altimeter that measures relative elevation. Apple Watch Series 3 comes in two models, one with GPS and cellular, and one with GPS, both featuring a 70% faster dual-core processor and new wireless chip.

Soon, the combination of cellular and watchOS 4 will allow Apple Music users to stream 40 million songs right from their wrist, according to Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. Beginning Friday, Sept. 15, Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) will be available to order in 10 countries and territories, and Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) will be available to order in 28 countries and territories. Both models are available in stores starting Friday, Sept. 22.

Apple kicked off its media event by announcing its new Apple TV 4K set top device. The new model adds HDR functionality to allow a resolution capable of four times the pixels of the current 1080p HD model, while HDR provides a greater range of richer colors with supported titles and TV sets.

The Apple TV 4K retails for $179 with 32GB of RAM and $199 for 64GB.

The updated tvOS, coming to the previous fourth-generation and these new fifth-generation models, expands features in the TV app introduced last year. In addition to live news, the TV app will add live sports later this year, with the ability to mark favorite teams in a Sports tab (U.S. only).

Apple has also slightly redesigned the Siri Remote, adding a white circle around the Menu button. This will help with visual identification of the remote’s orientation, something that’s a frequent object of criticism, although this change still requires looking at the remote rather than by feel.

If the super-spendy iPhone X is more than you want to pay for a phone, Apple is also offering updates to the smaller iPhones, called the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. They still have the Home button and body bezels, they still use Touch ID instead of Face ID, and the LCD screen sizes are the same that you’re used to. But don’t call them retro.

The 4.7-inch iPhone 8 goes on sale Friday, September 22 for $699 for 64GB, with a 256GB option too. And the 5.5-inch 7s Plus will start at $799 for 64GB, with a 256GB option. You can preorder these phones on Friday, September 15.

Apple’s smartwatch just got a whole lot smarter. Apple Watch Series 3 has arrived, and while it didn’t get the dramatic redesign we were hoping for, its improvements on the inside more than make up for the sameness of the enclosure. (And if you need people to know you have the latest model, there are some cool new colors too, like ceramic gray and a different shade of gold to match the iPhone 8.)

But what makes Apple Series 3 such a monumental upgrade isn’t fashion, it’s flexibility. More than ever, Apple Watch is built to fit into your lifestyle, no matter how you spend your free time. Here are the six things we’re most excited about in Apple Watch Series 3:

Case manufacturers Case Mate and X-Doria haven't just been sitting around waiting for the new phones to come out from Apple -- they've been designing and manufacturing cases! I recorded this video on September 11, 2017 before the Apple Event, so you'll have to excuse me if we get the names of the new iPhones wrong. Our "best guesses" for the naming conventions are iPhone X for the OLED iPhone, and iPhone 8 and 8 Plus for the "next generation" in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus series. 

The pricing for these cases may be different from what we show here, and we don't guarantee when they'll be available. Be sure to check the manufacturer websites for more information. And now, enjoy the show!

Apple Announces iPhone X With Edge-To-Edge Display,...

At its event in Cupertino, California today, Apple unveiled the iPhone X to mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. It brings several new features including an edge-to-edge screen, Qi wireless charging, and Face ID. The Verge reports: Because of its edge-to-edge display, the iPhone has no place for a conventional home button, relying instead on a complex facial recognition system to unlock the phone. Called FaceID, the new system will replace TouchID, the home button sensor that's enabled fingerprint logins since 2013's iPhone 5S. Users can wake the phone by swiping up from the button instead of hitting the button. The same gesture will open the control panel once the phone is awake. The updated iPhone 8 will continue unchanged, including both the home button and TouchID. Apple also unveiled the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which are updated versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus released last year. These new devices feature glass backs with support for wireless charging. The Verge provides...

Yep, it’s the iPhone X (not 8 or Pro or Edition)

At today’s special media event, Apple introduced the iPhone X (yep, that’s the name, not the iPhone Pro or iPhone Edition). CEO Tim Cook said it would set the pattern of smartphone technology for the next decade.

It has glass on both the back and front and features an edge-to-edge display. It’s made of stainless steel and is dustproof and water resistant. Its super retina display that’s 5.8 inches, 2436 x 1125 resolution, and uses OLED technology. It also supports HDR and Dolby vision. The iPhone X boasts a million-to-one contrast ratio and a TrueTone screen.

There’s no more Home button. You can wake your display by simply tapping the screen. Swipe up from bottom of the display go to to the Home screen. Siri is active by saying, “Hey, Siri,” or press the side button to activate the personal digital assistant. 

You unlock the iPhone X with facial recognition technology, which Apple has dubbed “Face ID.” A neural engine and the True Depth camera system atop the...

The original iPhone turned 10 this year, and in true Apple fashion, the company celebrated by debuting a totally new iPhone that shows how far the device has come in its tenure.

Design

As soon as Apple announced the iPhone X, its deviations from the traditional iPhone design were remarkable. The iPhone X (spoken "iPhone Ten") has an edge-to-edge OLED, "Super Retina" (2436x1125, 458ppi) display on the front of the handset. This display has the highest pixel density of any iPhone, and it supports HDR content. Apple claims it addressed the issues that traditional OLED displays have with brightness and color...

iOS 11 won't fundamentally change the look and feel of your iPhone, but it does offer some exciting updates.

As expected, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were announced at today's Apple event. There's a new glass front and back, with an aluminum trim around the sides. It is a very durable glass, and microscopically sealed for water and dust resistance. 

The device has a True Tone display for the first time, as well as an all new A11 Bionic System on Chip. The A11 Bionic has six cores, two of which are performance cores and four of which are efficiency cores. 

Of course, the camera has been improved! A new 12MP sensor is in the iPhone 8, and two sensors are found in the iPhone 8 Plus. Apple has added a feature called Portrait Lighting to the iPhone 8 Plus. It provides lighting effects for photos in real time, and the effects can be changed after you've taken the photo.

Apple TV 4K adds HDR and faster performance

The new Apple TV 4K adds support for 4K video (naturally) as well as HDR, or High Dynamic Range, making for a significant upgrade to a product Apple once called a “hobby.” The 4K resolution offers four times the pixels of the current 1080p HD model, while HDR provides a greater range of richer colors with supported titles and TV sets.

The new Apple TV 4K costs $179 with 32GB of RAM and $199 for 64GB. Orders begin Sept. 15, and it ships starting Sept. 22.

Customers who’ve purchased HD movies will receive upgrades in their iTunes libraries to corresponding 4K versions at no additional cost, and new titles in 4K will be sold at the same price as HD versions. Apple said that it’s working with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video to bring their 4K libraries to Apple TV. Apple offered no new information on when an Amazon video app would be available for tvOS.

Apple introduces the Apple TV 4K with HDR

As expected, at today’s Apple media event, CEO Tim Cook and Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, introduced the new Apple TV. Or, more precisely, the Apple TV 4K, which has support for 4K and HDR.

4K is known as Ultra High Definition (UHD), while 1080P is simply labelled High Definition (HD). As their names imply, 4K UHD has a considerably higher resolution than 1080P HD video. 4K resolution is exactly 3840 x 2160 pixels, whilst 1080P consists of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

High-dynamic-range imaging (HDRI or HDR) is a set of techniques used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminositythan possible using standard digital imaging or photographic techniques. HDR images can represent more accurately the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, from direct sunlight to faint starlight, and is often captured by way of a plurality of differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter.

CUPERTINO, Calif.—At the first event held in the new Steve Jobs Theater on its new campus, Apple announced the new iPhone 8 handset today. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone, and Apple celebrated by doing something very uncharacteristic: skipping the “S” iteration of the iPhone 7 and pushing full-steam ahead with the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models.

The iPhone 8’s design is based off the iPhone 7 in that it doesn’t look incredibly different than Apple’s previous handsets. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are similar in size to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, but they have new glass fronts and backs that nod to the glass construction of the iPhone 4. Both models are made with aerospace-grade aluminum and the glass is reinforced by steel. Each model has a Retina display as well for improved color accuracy, wide color gamut, and True Tone technology.

Pricing for the Series 3 Cellular starts at $399, and a version without cellular starts at $329. Pre-orders begin on September 15, and they'll be available on September 22.

CUPERTINO, Calif.—Aside from iPhones, the Apple TV was the most rumored device ahead of Apple's September event. Today, the company announced a new Apple TV set-top box that's in line with most previous speculations: it can play 4K and HDR content thanks to support from a faster processor.

4K output may not be enticing for those who don't consume 4K content already. Movies and TV shows filmed in 4K are not the majority yet, but companies have been working to produce more of this high-quality video content. Netflix has more than 100 titles streaming in 4K—but as with any 4K content, you need a 4K-capable display to watch it.

Tim Cook on how Apple champions the environment,...

Adam Lashinsky, Fortune:

We’re here to put a dent in the universe,” Steve Jobs once famously said. “Otherwise why else even be here?”

And:

For Jobs the dent that he intended for Apple to make in the universe revolved almost totally around creating new products that would change people’s lives. Those products would be gorgeous and useful and fun and surprising, but rarely “good” in and of themselves. Despite a hippie-dippie veneer and earnest marketing, Apple under Jobs was a ruthlessly efficient moneymaker that largely left social programs to others.

I just love that intro. That said, this is an interview with Tim Cook.

Terrific read, lots to process. Way too much to quote out here, but take the time to dig in. Be on the look out for Tim’s comments on how he sees Apple changing the world (products, education, environment, human rights), a discussion of high margins, the Apple economy, health and research, and a lot more.

It’s about to get tougher for cops, border agents to...

Cyrus Farivar, Ars Technica:

According to security experts who have reviewed early developer versions of the forthcoming iOS 11, law enforcement will soon have a harder time conducting digital forensic searches of iPhones and iPads.

And:

Prior to this latest version of the firmware, in order for an iOS device to be “trusted” by a computer that it was physically connected to, that device had to be unlocked first via Touch ID or passcode. Next, the device would prompt the user: “Trust This Computer?” Only then could the entire device’s data could be extracted and imaged. Under iOS 11, this sequence has changed to also specifically require the passcode on the device after the “Trust This Computer?” prompt.

While the change may seem minor, the fact that the passcode will be specifically required as the final step before any data can be pulled off the phone means that law enforcement and border agents won’t have as much routine access to fully image a seized...

Imagine the 1 pm Sunday scene with crowded sidewalks and sticky car traffic. In today’s world, pedestrians and drivers manage a peaceful if hiccuping coexistence. Through eye contact, nods, hand signals, and, yes, courteous restraint, pedestrians decide to sometimes forfeit their right-of-way and let a few cars come through. On the whole, drivers are equally patient and polite.

That’s the current picture. But with self-driving cars, what then?

Can we “algorithmicize” eye contact and stuttering restraint? Can an SD car acknowledge a pedestrian’s nod, or negotiate “turning rights” with a conventional vehicle?

No, we can’t. And we don’t appear to have a path to overcome such “mundane” challenges.

Great post by Jean-Louis, per usual. Read the whole thing.

X Man

Assuming today’s new high-end iPhone really is going to be called “iPhone X”, there’s one big question we don’t know the answer to yet: is the “X” an “ex” or a “ten”?

I thought they were going to call it iPhone Pro, so take my guess accordingly, but I say it’s an “ex”, not a “ten”. Here’s why:

  • If it’s a “ten”, many — maybe most — people could call it “ex” anyway. No company knows this better than Apple. I think more people called Mac OS X “oh ess ex” than “oh ess ten”. People see an “X” and they say “ex”.

  • If it’s a “ten”, that makes the iPhones 8 it is debuting alongside look instantly out of date. In fact, 10 vs. 8 would make it look like they’re two generations behind. Apple’s goal should be to make all three new iPhones look new, exciting, and desirable.

  • If it’s a “ten”, that strongly suggests it’s a one-off exception in the product line. What would they call next year’s successor? Calling it “iPhone Ten” only...

Apple product that lived its entire life without...

Great observation from Benjamin Mayo:

If AirPods get refreshed tomorrow as expected, the first-generation will have never been in stock at https://t.co/2hpwHPHyeW.

— Benjamin Mayo (@bzamayo) September 11, 2017

A simple, but profound observation. To a business like Apple’s, inventory is the enemy. Inventory is sunk cost with the possibility of zero revenue in return. Yes, the AirPods did spend brief moments in stock, but this is as close to zero moments on the shelf as Apple products get.

Do the AirPods represent the future of Apple’s inventory management? Interesting.

We’ve been hearing a few unlikely-sounding whispers about Apple bundling AirPods with the new iPhone X.

The arguments against it are obvious. AirPods would represent a significant cost element, so the idea of including them as standard doesn’t seem likely. AirPods are already selling themselves. And it would annoy those who already bought them and now plan to buy the iPhone X …

Android Always Beats the iPhone To New Features,...

An anonymous reader shares a report: Qualcomm has published a somewhat self-congratulatory blog post that lauds the company and its Android partners for achieving a series of industry firsts that include wireless charging, dual-camera systems, OLED smartphone screens, edge-to-edge displays, and more -- features that the upcoming iPhone is expected to have. Apple and Qualcomm are currently embroiled in what's turning into a vicious, global patent licensing dispute. So the timing of this adulation for Android -- hours before Apple's big September event -- doesn't really strike me as coincidental. It can't be. Qualcomm never mentions Apple by name; the closest the company ever comes is with this line: Inventions from Qualcomm lay the foundation for so many technologies and experiences we value in our smartphones today -- on Android and other platforms.

Safari Extensions now appear in the Mac App Store

Do you use Safari Extensions? They're add-ons that work within Apple's Safari browser to add functionality. In the past, selecting Safari > Safari Extensions pointed you to a web page where you could browse and select extensions. While that still happens, there's now a link (seen in the screenshot above) that points you to the Mac App Store. 

In the Mac App Store is a nicely designed page showing the available extensions. Not all of the extensions that are available are listed on this page; it's my speculation that Apple is working with extension developers to improve the quality and marketability of extensions. While most extensions were free in the past, there are a number of for-purchase extensions in the Mac App Store as well as some that can be tried and then activated with an in-app purchase.

Personally, I like seeing the Safari Extensions in the Mac App Store. Especially if Apple creates a shortcut in the Mac App Store that points right to the extensions page,...

Apple Watch vs Android Wear: Why most smartwatches...

Serenity Caldwell, iMore:

When I first heard about Android Wear last year, I thought the folks behind the OS were doing a lot of things right. And I still do: the approach to notifications is smart, custom watch faces are neat, and Google Now — while creepy — works exceptionally well at providing smart information for your day.

There’s only one problem: There’s not a single Android Wear device designed to fit a small-wristed person.

Read the post, check out the pictures. If there are new Apple Watch models, I hope they continue to each ship in both 38mm and 42mm sizes. Great design sense on Apple’s part.

In celebration of the iPhone’s 10-year anniversary, WaterField has introduced a custom iPhone Camera Bag in elegant leather or black ballistic nylon designed to hold detachable lenses, mini tripod, and other photo accessories for the new iPhones expected to debut today. 

The iPhone Camera Bag allows mobile photographers to stow their iPhone photography gear within easy reach, ready to snap photos on a moment’s notice, says WaterField owner Gary Waterfield.

Apple patent filing is for an iPhone ‘battery case...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,761,927) for a “battery case with supplemental antenna features” for the iPhone. It involves a removable case for use with the smartphone.

In the patent filing, Apple says that some smartphone cases contain supplemental batteries. The company says it can be challenging to ensure that an electronic device antenna operates properly in the presence of an external case, as the materials of the case may affect antenna operation. 

For example, metal structures associated with a battery of other components may interfere with the normal operation of an electronic device antenna and dielectric materials may load an antenna. If care isn’t taken, wireless performance for an electronic device may be degraded in the presence of a removable case or undesired amounts of radiated spurious emissions may arise. Apple says what’s need is an improved removable case for electronic devices.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the patent: “A male...

An iPhone upgrade ‘supercycle’ seems to be coming

A survey of three dozen Asian companies that supply Apple shows shipments are already way up. "Initial launch volumes are up 10-15% year over year," Longbow Research says in a note to clients.

In other words, Apple's orders to its suppliers exceed the demand for iPhone 6s and iPhone 7. Google search trends also indicate an iPhone "supercycle" may be on its way, notes Business Insider. The supercycle theory suggests many iPhone users have phones that are more than two years old, and will upgrade en masse for the new phone in a “huge wave, akin to the experience with iPhone 6,” the article says.

Analyst: Apple won’t release its own wireless...

In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple won’t introduce its own wireless charging accessory for the new iPhones that will almost certainly debut today. 

The new smartphones are all expected to support inductive wireless charging. Until Apple releases its own wireless charger — and Kuo thinks it will — users will have to purchase third-party accessories. The analyst says Apple’s own solution isn’t yet ready because "higher requirements for wireless charger RF specifications.” He offers no forecast on when such a device might be released.

Inductive charging (also known as "wireless charging") — which Apple uses with the Apple Watch — uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two objects. This is usually done with a charging station. Energy is sent through an inductive coupling to an electrical device, which can then use that energy to...

Apple working to determine if the Apple Watch can...

Apple is apparently testing whether the Apple Watch can detect cardiac abnormalities. The company is working on the tests with partners including Stanford and telemedicine company American Well, reports Reuters, according to two unnamed “people familiar with the matter.”

If successful, the move could turn the watch into a must have device for millions of patients. Arrhythmias, or abnormal heart rhythms, aren't always problematic. But in some people, a condition known as atrial fibrillation can show no external symptoms while carrying a risk of blood clots, strokes and other complications.

For that reason, an Apple Watch could be a useful screening tool for high-risk patients -- if its heart rate monitor proves to be sufficiently sensitive and accurate,  notes Reuters. The smartwatch has already been used in studies to screen...

In anticipation of Apple unveiling its 10th anniversary iPhone models later today, TrendForce predicts that the global smartphone production volume for 2017 will reach around 1.4 billion units, representing an annual increase of 4.8%. The market intelligence firm forecasts that global production volume of iPhone devices (including all previous models) for 2017 will total around 227.5 million units, representing an annual increase of 5.6%.

TrendForce says that, among the three 10th anniversary iPhone models that will be released, the premium 5.8-inch model will come with an AMOLED display. The introduction of an AMOLED iPhone will help expedite the AMOLED adoption in the smartphone market. TrendForce forecasts that around 43% of smartphones shipped worldwide in 2020 will...

Rumor: Next-gen Apple TV could feature A10X Fusion...

It looks like there’s a good chance the next-gen Apple TV will also use an A10X Fusion processor.

Developer Steven Troughton-Smith has been analyzing the firmware files and has discovered signs that the new unit, set to be unveiled officially by Apple tomorrow, will use the A10X along with 3GB of RAM. This represents a big increase in power and may signal a larger direction beyond 4K movies and TV shows.

The upgrade could significantly increase computing power as well as graphics performance.

The inclusion of such a powerful chip could also indicate a renewed attempt to make the Apple TV a better games console with the ability to render graphically rich 3D games to better compete with consoles like the Nintendo Switch.

The RAM upgrade from 2GB of RAM to 3GB of RAM was also expected given the technical and bandwidth requirements of streaming 4K video.

Script Debugger loves AppleScript (but does Apple?)

By Aaron Lee

Late Night Software recently revved Script Debugger, its AppleScript authoring environment for the Mac, to version 6.0.5. It’s a maintenance release that addresses a series of issues that came to light following the release of Script Debugger 6.0. The tweaks make a good app even better. And Late Night Software seems to love AppleScript more than Apple does.

Script Debugger is a Mac source code editor and debugging environment for the AppleScript programming language, as well as other languages based on Apple’s Open Scripting Architecture. It utilizes the concept of script templates to create new script documents and more.

Script Debugger is a complete replacement for Apple's Script Editor. It offers no limit on script size as well as powerful editing, debugging and dictionary tools. If you want be successful with...
