CNET carries out review of iPhone X camera in...

I’m not totally convinced that the scene of the most devastating wildfire in California’s history is the most tasteful way to test the iPhone X camera, but I can kind of see why CNET’s senior photographer James Martin decided to do it.

News coverage requires a camera that not only produces good enough results for publication, but one that is sufficiently fast, reliable and flexible to cope with whatever might be thrown at it. In particular, you often don’t have much time for editing, so results have to be decent straight from camera …

The significance of the iPhone X and the return of...

Tripp Mickle, Wall Street Journal:

Long lines outside of Apple stores around the world showed strong initial demand for the new iPhone X, but analysts said the real test would be the company’s ability to sustain that level of interest over the coming months as it works through supply bottlenecks.

This really puzzles me. That word “but” in the middle of that paragraph. This good news followed by doomsaying seems so unnecessary.

Tim Cook said this on yesterday’s results call:

There’s always doubting Thomases out there and I’ve been hearing those for the 20 years I’ve been here and suspect I’ll hear about them until I retire. (laughs) I don’t really listen to that too much.

But I digress.

Enlarge / The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. (credit: Samuel Axon)

Apple released its fourth fiscal quarter financials late yesterday, showing numbers that beat most analysts' and Wall Street's expectations. The company's total revenue reached $52.6 billion, up 12 percent year-over-year and beating its own $52 billion projection.

Each of Apple's product segments grew this quarter: iPhone sales topped at 46.7 million units, accumulating $28.8 billion in revenue and increasing 2 percent year-over-year. iPad sales reached $4.8 billion while Mac sales hit $7.2 billion in revenue.

iPad sales are up, but the overall tablet market...

The third quarter of 2017 (3Q17) closed with 40 million tablets shipped globally, according to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker. And Apple’s iPad did better than most.

The research group says growing demand for smartphones combined with the lengthening replacement cycle of tablets and strengthening position of traditional PCs left the tablet market in an awkward middle ground that it has not been able to escape. Growth in 3Q17 declined 5.4% year over year, marking the twelfth consecutive quarter of annual decline.

"There's a penchant for low-cost slates and this holds true even for premium vendors like Apple," says Jitesh Ubrani, senior research analyst with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers. "However, many of these low-cost slates are simply long-awaited replacements for consumers as first-time buyers...

iFixIt tears down the iPhone X; here’s what they...

The gang at iFixIt, who tear apart gadgets and look at their innards so you don’t have to, have take apart Apple’s iPhone X. You should read the entire iPhone X Teardown, but here are some highlights: 

  • For the first time in iPhone history, Apple packed in a 2-cell battery that allowed them to get creative with the shapes and placement in a space-constrained phone. It weighs in at 10.35 Wh, which is on par with the iPhone 8 Plus battery, but shy of the Galaxy Note8’s 12.71 Wh behemoth. Pretty impressive for a phone smaller than any of the aforementioned.
  • Just like we saw on the iPhone 8, Apple banished all regulatory markings from the back of the iPhone X—including the e-waste symbol. We did a little sleuthing, and that featureless backplane is possible due to the E-LABEL Act, which allows manufacturers to display those labels on the screen instead.
  • The dual rear camera...

Over 300 iPhone X models stolen from San Francisco...

CNET:

Three “husky” men in hoodies driving a white Dodge van broke into a UPS truck Wednesday while it was parked outside a San Francisco Apple Store.

It was delivering 313 of Apple’s new iPhone X devices, according to a police report. The theft happened between 11:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. PT.

The total value of the stolen merchandise was estimated to be more than $370,000. The iPhone X, which becomes available in stores Friday, starts at $999 apiece. The suspects haven’t yet been caught.

More importantly:

People who planned to pick up their preordered iPhones at the Stonestown store will still get their devices on time, a person familiar with the matter said.

313 iPhones is a cube about 8 x 8 x 5 iPhone boxes. That’s ballpark, 25″ x 30″ x 30″. And that cube is worth more than $370K. That’s IF the thieves can sell the phones for anywhere near their value, if at all.

And a quick thinking janitor snapped a picture of the thieves...

iPhone X arriving in stores around the world

At 8 a.m. local time today, the iPhone X went on sale around the world. AppleInsider says that it’s learned that stores typically have well over 300 units on hand to sell, and in some cases, nearly a thousand.

The iPhone X comes in 64GB and 256GB models with pricing starting at $999. It’s expected to sell in huge quantities. Preliminary data from IHS Markit (ihsmarkit.com) shows that, in third quarter of 2017, Apple grew its smartphone shipments by 2.6% year-over-year, as the company is beginning to see the impact of iPhone 8 and the lead-in to the availability of iPhone 

The tech giant reported a 2.6% growth in unit shipments for the quarter, shipping 46.7 million units in quarter three of 2017 compared to 45.5 million units in the year-ago quarter. Apple was able to reverse its...

Comment: Apple’s earnings report & guidance show...

The run-up to the launch of the iPhone X has been a long one. We got the first sure-fire clue that Apple was shaking up its iPhone line with last year’s iPhone 7. Instead of the familiar tick-tock pattern of a new design one year and new internals the following year, the iPhone 7 was a second tock: a relatively minor external refresh of the iPhone 6 design.

That was, of course, an interim move while Apple got the iPhone X ready for launch. But instead of two new models this year, we got three.

There were many who wondered whether Apple knew what it was doing …

Jason Snell’s Apple results charts

Start with the revenue-by-category pie chart to get a sense of where the money comes from, then take a look at the year-over-year charts to get a sense of how each segment is doing compared the the same period a year ago.

Jason’s post also contains insights on the comments made on the call as well. If you care about Apple’s business side, this is a good read.

Apple’s AirPods are among the most desired...

The most desired electronics this holiday season include Apple’s AirPods, Sony PlayStation VR as well as home assistants, including Amazon Echo and Google Home, according to Adobe’s online shopping predictions. 

Based on Adobe Analytics, Adobe expects that online sales will be $107.4 billion, an increase of 13.8%, while in-store retail is expected to grow ten percent.* Cyber Monday is expected to become the largest online shopping day in history, generating $6.6 billion in sales, 16.5 percent growth compared to last year. Sales on Thanksgiving Day are expected to increase 15% year-over-year to $2.8 billion.

While desktop purchases are predicted to account for two-thirds of revenue this holiday season, mobile is serving as a starting point for many consumers. For the first time, web traffic on smartphones and tablets is predicted to be higher than for desktops, at 54% and 46%, respectively.

AirPods are wireless headphones that allow users to listen to music,...

Apple patent is for ‘drop countermeasures’ for...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170317707) for “drop countermeasures for electronic device,” which is designed to make iPhones, iPads, and perhaps even Mac laptops less likely to sustain damage if dropped.

The invention involves active protection systems for devices subject to potential hazards including dropping, shock, and impact. In particular, the disclosure relates to active countermeasure and damage mitigation systems suitable for a range of different electronic devices, including, but not limited to, mobile and cellular phones, smartphones, tablet computers, personal computers, personal digital assistants, media players, and other electronic devices. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that electronic devices are subject to a wide range of different environmental effects, including temperature extremes, humidity, physical contamination, and potential loss or damage due to physical hazards including dropping, shock, compression and impact.

It’s not quite the equivalent of the bank robbery scene in “Heat”, but it’s getting there. On Wednesday, three “husky” men in hoodies driving a white Dodge van broke into a UPS truck Wednesday while it was parked outside a San Francisco Apple Store.

The UPS truck was delivering 313 iPhone X units to the Apple Store, wherein the robbery itself occurred between 11:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. PT.

The total value of the stolen merchandise was estimated to be more than $370,000. The iPhone X, which becomes available in stores Friday, starts at $999 apiece. The suspects have yet to be caught.

Each iPhone X device was cataloged with a description and serial number and customers who planned to pick up their preordered iPhones at the Stonestown store will still get their devices on time, a person familiar with the matter said.

Qualcomm files suit against Apple, cites breach of...

On Wednesday, chipmaker Qualcomm filed suit against Apple, claiming Apple has failed to abide by the terms of a software license and said it may have used its unprecedented access to that code to help Qualcomm-rival Intel Corp.

The two companies are now engaged in a lawsuit over technology licensing fees that Qualcomm charges for patents. Apple has stated that Qualcomm is charging too much and has leveraged its strong market position in chips illegally. Qualcomm has countered that Apple, one of its largest customers, has lied to regulators in an unfair attempt to bully it into charging less.

Apple currently uses Qualcomm’s chips as modems without its devices to communicate with cellular networks. Apple has widened its supplier base to include Intel for some of the chips, beginning with the iPhone 7. The company has yet to respond to requests seeking comment.

Qualcomm has also alleged that Apple failed to protect access to the chipmaker’s software and has not...

The group used a total of four bugs to both gain code execution and escalate their user privileges to allow their rogue application to install via a reboot. In addition, the group snagged $60,000 for the WiFi exploit and added $50,000 for the persistence bonus, thereby totaling $110,000 and 11 Master of Pwn points....

Apple on Thursday reported sales and earnings well ahead of projections, and said holiday sales should be a record and ahead of many analysts' expectations. The company sold 46.6 million iPhones last quarter, which came in about 500,000 units ahead of expectations. Axios reports: Going into the earnings report, there were concerns about both iPhone 8 demand and iPhone X supply. Thursday's report should go a long way toward answering those questions. Sales were up in every region expect Japan, where business was down from the prior year, though up sequentially. Notably, the company finally saw a much-needed turnaround in Greater China, where sales of $9.8 billion were up 22% from the prior quarter and 12% from a year ago. The company's business has been weak in China for some time, though the company had predicted improvement this quarter. Apple reported $52.6 billion in revenue (vs $51.2 billion estimated) and per-share earnings of $2.02 (vs $1.87 estimated). In addition to the 46....

In the quarter ending September 30, Apple Thursday reported revenue of $52.6 billion, an increase of 12 percent from the year-ago quarter’s $46.9 billion, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $2.07, up 24 percent from $1.67 in 2016.

Apple announces Q4 2017 revenue of $52.6b: 46.7m...

We’re just hours away from the launch of the iPhone X (ahhh!), but first Apple has to report how its last quarter went which includes initial iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus sales. iPhone X only became available for pre-order last Friday and won’t appear in today’s results.

In addition to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple’s fiscal year 2017 fourth quarter results also include Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV 4K.

So how did Apple perform last quarter with the iPhone X looming over the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus? Apple reports $52.6b in revenue and $10.7b profit from 46.7m iPhones, 10.3m iPads, and 5.4m Macs sold. Next quarter Apple forecasts revenue between $84 billion and $87 billion (that’s a lot).

iOS 11 overtakes 10.3 in less than a month

Apple’s iOS 11 has overtaken its former version iOS 10.3 less than a month after release according to web analytics company Statcounter.

Statcounter Global Stats reports that iOS 11 reached 42% of all iOS versions worldwide in October compared to 35.5% for iOS 10.3. On a daily basis, iOS 11 overtook 10.3 on Oct. 12, less than a month after its release on Sept. 19.

App Developer Access To iPhone X Face Data Spooks...

A reader shares a report: Apple won accolades from privacy experts in September for assuring that facial data used to unlock its new iPhone X would be securely stored on the phone itself. But Apple's privacy promises do not extend to the thousands of app developers who will gain access to facial data in order to build entertainment features for iPhone X customers, such as pinning a three-dimensional mask to their face for a selfie or letting a video game character mirror the player's real-world facial expressions. Apple allows developers to take certain facial data off the phone as long as they agree to seek customer permission and not sell the data to third parties, among other terms in a contract seen by Reuters. App makers who want to use the new camera on the iPhone X can capture a rough map of a user's face and a stream of more than 50 kinds of facial expressions. This data, which can be removed from the phone and stored on a developer's own servers, can help monitor how often...
