Barclay analysts think the “Batterygate” brouhaha could cost Apple $10.29 billion, according to Business Insider. They think the fiasco would result in as many as 16 million lost smartphone sales by the tech giant.

“While this is a good PR move for Apple to resolve the issue, we are concerned it could be a mild headwind for iPhone unit sales if more iPhone users decide to take the offer instead of upgrading to a new iPhone,” says analyst Mark Moskowitz.

A state agency in Sao Paulo Brazi says that Apple must notify consumers about its iPhone battery replacement program, reports Business Insider.

The move relates to Apple's decision to lower the price of iPhone battery replacements following reports that the company reduced the performance of iPhones with older batteries for performance reasons. The Brazilian agency, called Procon-SP, has the power to levy fines or propose legal actions for companies that harm consumers.

Apple is developing a new original drama series entitled Are You Sleeping, starring Octavia Spencer, reports Variety. Created and written by Nichelle Tramble Spellman, the series will be produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Chernin Ent/Endeavor Content.

The series is based on Kathleen Barber’s novel of the same name, which gives a glimpse into the obsession with true crime podcasts and “challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage.” Sarah Koenig, the creator and producer behind true crime podcast Serial, will consult on the series.

Are You Sleeping is the second project Apple has teamed with Witherspoon and Hello Sunshine on so far. The company has committed to a dramatic series starring Witherspoon and Jennifer...

Metal chassis makers, including Taiwan-based Casetek Holdings, China-based AAC Technologies and Singapore-based Hi-P Electronics, are expected to join the race to compete for smartphone chassis orders from Apple in 2018, according to DigiTimes.

Casetek is a supplier of the MacBook's chassis and iPhones' volume and power buttons and wants to become a chassis supplier for 2018 iPhones in 2018, the article adds, quoting unnamed “industry sources.” Hi-P is mainly supplying plastic chassis for Apple's entry-level iPhones, but is planning to obtain orders for iPhone's metal chassis and has sent in engineering samples for certification. AAC wants in on the smartphone metal chassis business and its product samples are being validated, adds DigiTimes.

Review: Shure SE215 Wireless In-Ear Headphones

Two products, one review: that's the kind of efficiency you can expect from us here at iLounge. Today we're looking at a "new" headphone from legendary headphone and microphone manufacturer Shure, the SE215 Wireless IEM. We put "new" in quotes because although the "SE215 Wireless" is a new SKU, the two products contained in the box — the SE215 in-ear monitor and RMCE-BT1 Bluetooth cable — have been available for some time. Though we were not completely wowed by this Bluetooth implementation, the SE215 lives up to its legacy with an added twist of wireless convenience.{/exp:char_limit}

Quoting unnamed “multiple sources,” AppleInsider says there are routines in macOS 10.13.2 to secure the Intel chip flaw that could grant applications access to protected kernel memory data. 

These measures, coupled with existing programming requirements about kernel memory that Apple implemented over a decade appear to have mitigated most, if not all, of the security concerns associated with the problem, the article adds. There are also “surprise” security features coming in macOS 10.3.3, per AppleInsider.

iPhone 2018 rumors: LG Display to supply 6.5-inch...

Updated 01/03/18: LG Display is said to be the supplier of OLED displays for a 6.5-inch iPhone this year.

It’s not enough that the new iPhone X is only a month or so old; rumors about next year’s iPhone are already starting to fly. We’ll keep track of what’s been said and what seems feasible in this article so you can keep up with the latest iPhone gossip.

What's the latest?

A report from Electronic Times in Korea states that LG Display has an order with Apple to produce 15-16 million phone displays in 2018. The displays are all said to be 6.5 inches, which means one thing: LG is going to make the display for the supposed larger iPhone X sequel (call it an "iPhone X Plus"), while Samsung will continue to be the primary OLED display supplier for the new 5....

Amazon’s kicking off the year with its first sale price on a popular mouse: the Logitech MX Master 2S. Currently this model is $80, or 20 percent off its normal $99 MSRP.

Note that Amazon is out of stock of the mouse until Sunday, but you can still order it right now for the sale price.

What makes this mouse so popular is that it packs so many great features into a single device. For starters, the MX Master 2S is a 4000 DPI mouse, with a touted battery life of up to 70 days, and works on almost any surface without a mouse pad—including glass.

This model also comes with the same “hyper scroll wheel” that the original MX Master had, which lets you speed scroll through a document or webpage. Tap a button, however, and it becomes a click-to-click...

Apple: the winter weather problems at Chicago store...

Last week it was reported that Apple Michigan Avenue, Apple’s flagship store in Chicago, was having problems with winter weather in the Windy City.

Specifically, there are no gutters to catch falling snow or ice. Nor is the roof sloping, so icicles that do form dangle from 20 some feet overhead. However, Apple says it’s software problem, not the design of the store itself and its MacBook Pro-inspired roof.

Apple spokesman Nick Leahy tells the Chicago Tribune that said the building's architects, London-based Foster + Partners, had designed the glass-walled store with winter in mind, but had been foiled by a technical malfunction.

Realmac's Typed.com blogging platform to shut...

About three years ago when Apple World Today was launching, one of our first sponsors was Typed, a simple blogging platform that was being developed by Realmac Software and funded through Indiegogo. Yesterday, Realmac's Dan Counsell reported that "with a heavy heart...the time has finally come to shut down the typed.com servers."

Typed has been in financial trouble for a while. Counsell wanted to make sure that the platform was not cluttered with ads in order to keep the service running, and back in August of 2017 he announced that Realmac was looking for another company that would be willing to carry Typed forward into the future. That didn't happen, so the company is shutting down Typed.com on January 31.

The 'App' You Can't Trash: How SIP is...

A reader shares a blog post that talks about why Mac running High Sierra 10.13.2 (and other versions near it) refuses to let users uninstall some third-party applications easily. For instance, when users attempt to uninstall BlueStacks, an Android emulator, the Finder shows this warning: "The operation can't be completed because you don't have the necessary permission." The blog post looks into the subject: The moment that we see the word permission, all becomes clear: it's a permissions problem. So the next step is to select the offending item in the Finder, press Command-I to bring up the Get Info dialog, and change the permissions. It does, though, leave the slight puzzle as to why the Finder didn't simply prompt for authentication instead of cussedly refusing. Sure enough, after trying that, the app still won't go and the error message is unchanged. Another strange thing about this 'app' is that it's not an app at all. Tucked away in a mysterious folder, new to High Sierra, in...

Explainer: Why Apple didn’t put long-distance...

Back when Android manufacturers were adding wireless charging to their phones and Apple wasn’t, one popular theory was that the iPhone maker was skipping contact-based chargers and holding out for long-distance ones. In the end, of course, Apple finally opted for the same contact-based Qi chargers as everyone else.

But resonance chargers – which require the device to be placed extremely close to the charging coils – offer limited benefit. Sure, it’s convenient to be able to just put your iPhone X down on a wireless charging dock and pick it up again later without having to fiddle with the Lightning cable, but you still have just as many cables as ever – they are now simply attached to docks.

RF-based long-distance charging – promoted by companies like Energous – promises far greater benefit, allowing devices to be charged anywhere in the same room as the charger. So why didn’t Apple wait...

Both companies cut prices for the smallest version of their speakers, the Amazon Echo Dot and Google Home Mini, to as little as $29 from $50 for the U.S. holidays. Midlevel versions cost a bit more than twice as much.

LG reportedly to supply OLED panels for a 6.5-inch...

The Korea Herald reports that while Samsung will remain the sole or primary supplier of the OLED panels for the current, 5.8-inch version of the iPhone X, LG will supply panels for a bigger 6.5-inch model due this year.

The article says LG Display will start production in the second quarter at its E6 plant in Paju, Gyeonggi Province. The plant, consisting of two OLED production lines, has a monthly production capacity of six million OLED screens but its full-capacity production is expected to start next year considering its still low yield rate, per The Korea Herald.

In November 2017, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told clients that Apple has a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone planned for the second half of 2018. He says it will be the general size of a Plus-sized iPhone and add an edge-to-edge OLED display.

Chris Smith, BGR:

If the same image is shown on an OLED screen for a long period of time, burn-in effects may set in. This goes for TVs, monitors, and smartphones. It took the iPhone X 510 hours of continuously displaying the exact same image on the iPhone X for burn-in effects to become permanent. That’s Cetizen’s conclusion, and that’s great news for all iPhone X users.

And:

Cetizen stopped at various intervals to check for burn-in traces, but the iPhone X did not show visible effects until hitting the 510-hour mark. The screens on the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S7 Edge, meanwhile, were impacted sooner.

As of Jan. 13, the UK will ban shops and stores from charging a fee for credit card and debit card transactions, according to The Bristol Post. This will eliminate additional fees for credit and debit transactions, including those with Apple Pay.

The law applies to both in-store and online payments and includes American Express and other payment methods such as PayPal. All purchases made in the UK from UK businesses will be protected by the law, and it will also apply to any surcharging by local councils and government agencies agencies, according to The Post. The law also follows an EU directive, meaning companies across the EU will also be banned from applying this surcharge.

Fundamental design flaw in Intel chips forces...

The Register:

A fundamental design flaw in Intel’s processor chips has forced a significant redesign of the Linux and Windows kernels to defang the chip-level security bug.

Programmers are scrambling to overhaul the open-source Linux kernel’s virtual memory system. Meanwhile, Microsoft is expected to publicly introduce the necessary changes to its Windows operating system in an upcoming Patch Tuesday: these changes were seeded to beta testers running fast-ring Windows Insider builds in November and December.

And:

Similar operating systems, such as Apple’s 64-bit macOS, will also need to be updated – the flaw is in the Intel x86-64 hardware, and it appears a microcode update can’t address it. It has to be fixed in software at the OS level, or go buy a new processor without the design blunder.

The worst news is that since the issue is in the hardware itself, a software patch of something so deeply rooted in the pipeline will cause a performance hit...

A fundamental design flaw in Intel's processor chips means Linux and Windows will need a redesign, while other operating systems such as macOS will need an update, reports The Register.

The flaw is in the Intel x86-64 hardware, and apparently it has to be fixed in software at the operating system level — or replaced by a new processor without the glitch, the article adds. In other words, Apple will have to release an update to the Mac’s operating system to deal with the problem. 

Obviously, the tech giant isn’t going to be happy about the situation. Which will certainly add fire to the (not unreasonable) speculation that Apple will eventually design its own chips for its Mac, as well as iOS, devices.

"By designing its own chips, Apple can better differentiate itself from others. Further, depending too much on other chip suppliers in the age of artificial...

At first glance, the gaming apps — with names like “Pool 3D,” “Beer Pong: Trickshot” and “Real Bowling Strike 10 Pin” — seem innocuous. One called “Honey Quest” features Jumbo, an animated bear.

Yet these apps, once downloaded onto a smartphone, have the ability to keep tabs on the viewing habits of their users — some of whom may be children — even when the games aren’t being played.

Yesterday, we posted about a technique ad houses use to glean your identity using your browser’s password manager.

HSD Versions Cleaner is a solid, inexpensive tool...

HSD Versions Cleaner is a relatively new app for the Mac, but one worth checking out. With it you can observe and delete old files. For instance, it can help you reduce the amount of previous file versions, stored by the macOS’s Auto Save feature.

Depending on what you do with your Mac, such previous file versions can occupy a lot of disc space, even though macOS doesn’t keep them forever. With HSD Versions Cleaner, you can define criteria which previous file versions should be deleted automatically in the background, which is very convenient.

Easy to use, HSD Versions Cleaner gives you control over how many old file versions should be kept for selected documents. You can delete a selection of old file versions manually or define criteria when certain old file versions should be deleted automatically. Both observing and deleting old file versions is done within a single application window.

HSD Versions Cleaner requires macOS 10.11 or higher and costs $2.99. It’...

iFixit releases 5K iMac Pro teardown

The cool cats at iFixit have completed and posted their full teardown of the long-awaited 5K iMac Pro and discovered the following nifty features and components:

– The iMac Pro features a massive dual fan cooler to help keep the CPU and GPU cool. The computer is also notably quiet, even when performing intensive operations that would send a standard cooling fan into overdrive.

– The lack of a full sized desktop hard drive allows for additional space inside the iMac pro for additional components.

– The 5K iMac lacks an external RAM door, which made for easy RAM upgrades on previous model iMacs.

– The rear air vent is about 80% larger to increase cooling capability. There is also a dual-port air intake near the bottom of the machine beneath the revamped I/O.

– The 5K iMac Pro uses standard 288-pin RAM sticks, which are technically user-replaceable, but are much more difficult to access. Apple advises users to consult an authorized repair...

Apple Will Replace Old iPhone Batteries Regardless...

After apologizing to customers for slowing older iPhones down as the batteries degrade, Apple has started offering battery swaps for $29. This has led to some confusion as Apple did not clarify how it qualified batteries as eligible for the discounted replacement, as the Apple Genius Bar uses a diagnostic test to check whether a battery can retain 80 percent of its original capacity at 500 complete charge cycles. According to Mac Rumors, Apple has confirmed that they will replace the battery if your iPhone 6 or later even if it passes a Genius Bar diagnostic test. From the report: Apple has since independently confirmed to MacRumors that it will agree to replace an eligible battery for a $29 fee, regardless of whether an official diagnostic test shows that it is still able to retain less than 80 percent of its original capacity. The concession appears to have been made to mollify the anger of customers stoked by headlines suggesting that Apple artificially slows down older iPhones...
