Rumor: Wistron Corp. to produce the next-generation...

Taiwan-based contract electronics maker Wistron Corp. is preparing to expand of its production base in India to produce the next-generation iPhone SE, reports Focus Taiwan, quoit unnamed “sources in the South Asian country.”

The tech giant has reportedly set its sights on the growing Indian market by pushing for shipments of the smartphone model with the goal of doubling the iPhone's market share in the country over the next five years. The sources told Focus Taiwan that Apple has signed up Wistron to assemble the new iPhone SEs after the Taiwanese firm started to produce the model in India in May, targeting markets around the world.

Getting a foothold in India has been a challenge for Apple. The company has opened its retail stores in a number of countries around the world, but not in India. The country has restrictive real estate investment laws for foreign companies.

Apple retail establishments are the new mall anchor...

Apple’s retail stores are turning into the new mall anchor store, a role once held by department stores, because they draw lots of foot traffic, which also benefits the smaller stores.

In the U.S., there are roughly about 140 million customers with iPhones, estimated Gene Munster, a partner in Loup Ventures in an interview with TheStreet, and those millions usually need to go to a bricks-and-mortar store for service.

"An Apple Store in a mall is equivalent to staying alive at a mall," he added.

The presence of an Apple Store in a mall also increases the value of a mall and allows mall owners to raise square-footage rates for other tenants. Robin Abrams, a commercial real estate executive in New York City, told TheStreet that hedge funds evaluating malls will factor in whether or not...

Samsung Display revving up its OLED lines to prepare...

According to the Korean news site, etnews, Samsung Display will operate seven of its sixth generation flexible OLED lines on full scale this month to prepare for the “iPhone 8.” The next gen phone is expected to debut in September, although supplies will probably (and as usual) be constrained.

The article says its production capacity of panels for Apple smartphones will increase sevenfold from 15,000 panels per month from last year to 105,000 panels per month this year. If etnews and other reports are correction, the next generation smartphone will be the first to use OLED tech.

OLED technology is used in many high-end smartphones.  Supporters of the technology praise its high contrast/deep blacks and potential thickness and power consumption advantages.

Smartphone use has radical impact on mental health...

San Diego State University professor of psychology and author Jean Twenge has claimed that smartphone usage is having a radical impact on both the behavior and mental health of U.S. teenagers.

The arrival of the smartphone has radically changed every aspect of teenagers’ lives, from the nature of their social interactions to their mental health […] Rates of teen depression and suicide have skyrocketed since 2011. It’s not an exaggeration to describe iGen as being on the brink of the worst mental-health crisis in decades. Much of this deterioration can be traced to their phones.

Far from being the usual generalized complaint about teens spending too much time staring at their screens, Dr Twenge has plenty of hard data to support her contentions – made in The Atlantic, the magazine in which Laurene Powell Jobs recently bought a majority stake...

Strategy Analytics: Apple Watch sales placed around...

While Apple has never released exact numbers as to how many Apple Watch units have been sold, Strategy Analytics puts the number around 30 million.

This puts it behind Xiaomi in the wearables market, but definitely in respectable territory.

“Apple shipped 2.8 million wearables worldwide in Q2 2017, growing 56 percent annually from 1.8 million in Q2 2016,” said Strategy Analytics Director Cliff Raskind. “Apple has for now lost its wearables leadership to Xiaomi, due to a lack of presence in the sizable fitness band subcategory.”

Raskind added that this could change with the introduction of the Apple Watch Series 3, which is expected to ship this fall.

“The rumored upcoming Watch Series 3 launch with enhanced health tracking could prove to be a popular smartwatch model and enable Apple to reclaim the top wearables spot later this year,” he said.

According to the firm, Apple shipped 2.8 million units during the second quarter of 2017, compared to...

Apple files for patent for remotely updating a...

A 2016 Apple filling with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) showed that the company is urging the FCC should “recognize solutions such as the MFi [Made for iPhone] hearing aid platform as alternatives for hearing aid compatibility compliance.” And the tech company apparently has other plans along these lines, having filed for a patent (number 2017022341) for “remotely updating a hearing aid profile.”

It would allow users to replace a current hearing aid profile stored in a hearing aid. In one embodiment, the hearing aid profile is updated by sending a hearing aid profile update request to a hearing aid profile service, receiving the updated healing aid profile from the hearing aid profile service, and replacing the current hearing aid profile in the hearing aid with the updated hearing aid profile.

I’m pretty sure Apple isn’t planning to go into the hearing aid business, but is more interested in having such aids work in conjunction with iPhones. However,...

HomePod firmware offers hints as to 4K, 60 FPS front...

Yet another interesting tidbit came out of the leaked HomePod firmware today. Following earlier details such as design and face recognition information, Portuguese news site iHelp has found code that seemingly indicates the iPhone 8 will be capable of 4K video at 60 frames per second with both the front and rear cameras…

The code mentions a device with support for 4K video at 60 FPS. The device is given both a “front” and “back” qualifier, suggesting that both cameras will 4K video at 60 FPS.

Currently, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus support 4K video with the rear camera only, but only at 30 FPS. Meanwhile, the front camera is limited to 1080p.

The HomePod firmware also mentions the front and rear cameras as supporting Apple’s new Apple’s new HEVC file type, which greatly reduces file size. The HEVC file format can cut file sizes in half, which could be crucial with 4K content.

A jump to 60 FPS, especially with the rear camera, could allow for more...

Apple's Adoption Of HEVC Will Drive A Massive...

An anonymous reader shares a report: For the last 10 years, H.264/AVC has been the dominant video codec used for streaming but with Apple adopting H.265/HEVC in iOS 11 and Google heavily supporting VP9 in Android, a change is on the horizon. Next year the Alliance for Open Media will release their AV1 codec which will again improve video compression efficiency even further. But the end result is that the codec market is about to get very fragmented, with content owners soon having to decide if they need to support three codecs (H.264, H.265, and VP9) instead of just H.264 and with AV1 expected to be released in 2019. As a result of what's take place in the codec market, and with better quality video being demanded by consumers, content owners, broadcasters and OTT providers are starting to see a massive increase in encoding costs. New codecs like H.265 and VP9 need 5x the servers costs because of their complexity. Currently, AV1 needs over 20x the server costs. The mix of SD, HD...

CIRP: we love our big-screen iPhones

Larger screens lead to higher iPhone sales, according to a new report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners. The research firm estimates that Apple’s domestic installed base has 141 million units as of this quarter; that’s up from 124 million in the year-ago quarter.

CIRP says the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus account for 34% of the U.S. market with 48 million units in sales. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus account for 39 million units. 

Larger screens prove most popular with the 6 Plus, 6s Plus, and 7 Plus accounting for 53 million units, says CIRP. The year-old iPhone SE saw just 6% growth in the U.S. installed base.

Designer Max Rudberg shares three possible scenarios for the iPhone 8 and iOS 11…

Vinpok Bolt-S Cable: MagSafe capability for the...

Vinpok Bolt-S Magnetic Charging Cable. Photo ©2017, Steven Sande

So, you’ve moved up to a new MacBook Pro but you miss the safety provided by Apple’s clever MagSafe power connector. Vinpok has a magnetic charging cable called the Bolt-S (US$50, available for pre-order for $24) coming soon that may be what you need to resurrect the functionality of the MagSafe — keeping your MacBook Pro (or MacBook) from dropping to the ground when someone trips over the power cable. 

Design

Let’s get one thing out front right away — the Bolt-S Cable cannot be used as a data cable as it’s not designed for that functionality. It’s a magnetically detachable power cable, and that’s it. On one end is a USB-C connector that plugs into Apple’s provided AC adapter. On the other, you’ll find the special feature of the Bolt-S...

∞ The iPhone Pro and the disappearing home button

Dave here. James Thomson, in a Twitter thread with Steve Troughton Smith, pondering the interface possibilities of the coming iPhone Pro (and I use that name as a shorthand for any and all phones Apple announces next month with a new hardware layout):

I’m curious what will happen for full screen stuff where the status bar would be hidden. Hide the home indicator too, and use everything?

— James Thomson (@jamesthomson) August 2, 2017

This raises an interesting question. If the home button no longer has dedicated real estate but is, instead a fungible, virtual spot, with the ability to be turned on and off, what happens if an app runs full screen? How will you exit the app?

In other words, if a game takes over the full screen, presumably the home button will not be there. What will the user do to force exit the app, to return to the home screen?

Embracing the notch

Max Rudberg:

Apple’s accidental release of the HomePod firmware prompted Steven Throughthon-Smith’s to go digging through and uncovering a lot of exciting pieces on the upcoming high-end iPhone, codename D22. Allen Pike then had an interesting take on what that new form factor could mean for the UI.

Max took Allen Pike’s thoughts on the notch and its impact on the nav bar (here’s my summary, with a link to Allen’s brilliant post) and worked up some beautiful, high-res mockups.

Lovely stuff.

The New York Times, Apple growth, and doomed

Vindu Goel, The New York Times:

At 41 years old, Apple is a respected elder of the tech industry. But rather than easing slowly into retirement, the company is going through another growth spurt.

On Wednesday, Apple’s stock surged 5 percent to a record high of $157.14 after it reported surprisingly strong financial results. It is now worth $822 billion, more than any other company in the stock market.

High praise from the New York Times. Interesting.

But:

For Apple, which is far more dependent on hardware sales than other tech leaders, the recent performance is all the more impressive after its dismal 2016, when quarterly revenue fell for the first time in 13 years and the company’s sales in China dropped through the floor.

There it is. That’s the paper I know and love.

And:

Apple owns more US Treasury securities than most...

CNBC:

If Apple were a foreign country, CEO Tim Cook might have considerable political clout in the United States.

That’s because Apple owns $52.6 billion in U.S. Treasury securities, which would rank it among the top 25 major foreign holders, according to estimates from the Treasury Department and Apple’s SEC filings released on Wednesday.

Apple would be 23rd in all countries. That’s just one measure of a company’s financial heft, but amazing nonetheless.

Opinion: There are signs Apple is starting to target...

If there’s one certainty in life where Apple is concerned, it’s that it targets the premium end of the market. Apple would tell you that it aims to make the best products, and that these cost money to make. A more cynical observer might say that Apple aims to make the highest margins and makes the products (and adds the marketing) it takes to achieve this.

But either way, the company has always targeted those customers willing to pay the big bucks for premium products. That approach has meant that while Samsung sells almost twice as many smartphones as Apple, it’s the Cupertino company that hoovers up almost 80% of the total profits in the industry.

But there are signs that Apple may be broadening its horizons …

In praise of Apple services

Jared White:

It’s very apparent there’s a product category that outshines all others in terms of growth. It’s one Apple has been understandably proud of in their earnings calls for several years now, and that is Services.

And:

The Services category encompasses all the stuff Apple does online, “in the cloud.” Things like the App Store. iCloud. Apple Pay. Apple Music. The iTunes store. In other words, Services is everything you buy from Apple after you buy your initial hardware.

And this business has been exploding.

Jared digs into the details, starting with the vast difference between Apple’s cloud business of 5 years ago and the stellar operation into which that cloud business has evolved.

Another point is the way, as a percentage of the whole, Apple’s services business is increasing as the iPhone business decreases. The point being, Apple’s services growth represents diversification, less (slightly) dependence on iPhone sales. Will there...

“Global wearables shipments reached 21.6 million units in the second quarter (Q2) 2017, rising 8% annually from 20.0 million in Q2 2016,” says Steven Waltzer, industry analyst at Strategy Analytics. “Strong demand for low-cost fitness bands in China and premium smartwatches across the United States drove the uptick.”

Apple is looking into ‘true’ quantum dot displays

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170221969) for “Quantum dot LED and OLED integration for high efficiency displays,” which promises quantum dot pixel displays on all its devices. The displays would offer “pure color” and use less energy.

All commercial products such as TVs using quantum dots, and branded as QLED, use them to convert light for LCD backlights, rather than as part of the actual display. However, “true” quantum dot displays are an experimental display technology different from those existing commercial products. In these QLEDs, quantum dots (QD) or semiconductor nanocrystals could provide an alternative for commercial applications as electro-optical display technology. 

This display technology would be similar to organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays, in that light would be emitted on demand, which would enable more efficient displays, and is also seen as the next generation technology after OLED. However, such products are still experimental...

Once more, with feeling: Uniloc sues Apple yet again

Another day, another continuation of the same ol’ battle. AppleInsider reports that Uniloc, a “patent troll,” has filed yet another suit, against Apple claiming, naturally, patent infringement.

Filed with the patent holder friendly Eastern Texas District Court, it relates to intellectual property reassigned from 3Com and involve the Apple TV remote. Uniloc claims Apple’s gadget violates its patent for a “System and method using a palm sized computer to control network devices" details a technique of remotely controlling internet-connected hardware from a handheld device.”

Previous lawsuits allege infringement of patents reassigned from Hewlett-Packard and 3Com that involve a method by which a temperature sensor is used to monitor battery heat during charge and discharge events. Current is subsequently limited to prevent overheating and...

Apple looking to hire more than 70 map tech experts

Apple wants to hire a bunch of map tech experts. More than 70 job listings went live in the past month on the company's site relating to its maps team.

Apple is looking for folks with skills involving "geospatial information services," "navigational aids" and "fleet management.” The map tech experts will doubtless help bring new features to the Maps app on macOS and iOS devices.

Plus, the new hires could help Apple deliver on two promises: becoming an important player in augmented reality and "autonomous systems.”

in its third quarter earnings report on Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook said in an interview with CNBC's Josh Lipton, "The smart phone is becoming even more important to people because it's going across so much of your life... With things like AR… I think it becomes even more essential than it currently is.”

How to use Memories in the Photos app in macOS Sierra

Apple revamped the Photos App in macOS Sierra, adding a Memories feature, which is designed to help you “rediscover favorite and forgotten moments from deep in your photo library.” Memories automatically creates curated collections of your most meaningful photos and videos. 

To use it, open the Photos app and click Memories in the left sidebar. You'll see a summary of the Memory's contents, chosen from the best photos in your library. You can choose Show All to see every photo and video in the Memory. 

Scroll down to see the people included in the Memory, a map showing where the photos and videos were taken, and a list of related Memories for you to explore. At the bottom of your Memory, you can find options to add the Memory to your favorites or delete it.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple's support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)

By Aaron Lee

Nattress Contrast is a nifty effects pack that's compatible with Final Cut Pro X, Motion, Premiere Pro and After Effects.

It contains four filters: Bleach Bypass, Detail Preserve Contrast, Hyper Contrast, and Luma & Saturation Contrast. Because some lenses naturally produce a lower contrast image due to the way light diffuses through the lens elements, adding post-production contrast effects is a great way to increase visual impact.

With Nattress Contrast effects, editors can use edge-dependent contrast masking to preserves edges and maintain detail. The filter suite gives users independent control of luma and saturation contrast as well as the ability to digitally recreate high-contrast film processing.

Nattress Contrasts costs $49. The trial version of Nattress Contrast is available by installing FxFactory. You can learn more by...

Leaked HomePod firmware hints at facial recognition...

The leaked HomePod firmware continues to hint at possible forthcoming Apple features down the pipe.

A set of code discovered in the firmware suggests Apple’s “iPhone 8” will integrate facial recognition into the Apple Pay process, though it appears the technology will not completely replace physical Touch ID.

Developer Daniel Niyazov tweeted out a note on Wednesday in which he noted references to “pearl,” which is thought to be Apple’s codename for “iPhone 8’s” facial recognition feature. The reference also showed up in leaked code associated with Apple Pay.

The HomePod firmware, which was inadvertently released to assorted developers, has revealed several possible new features for upcoming Apple products. Prior investigation of the code connected “pearl” and its various iterations to so-called “FaceDetect” features.

In particular, an area marked “pearl.field-detect” suggests a method of recognizing when a user’s face is within view of the handset’s...
