4 ways iOS 11 will improve how you listen to podcasts

Owing to its embrace of the format back in 2005, Apple owns the most prominent position in the podcast market. Between iTunes on iOS and Windows and the Podcasts app on iOS, Apple owns the most popular podcast players in existence. And Apple Podcasts is by far the largest and most comprehensive—some would say definitive—directory for podcasts in the world.

That position gives Apple power and influence in the podcast world, even if you don’t use Apple’s apps to listen to your favorite podcasts. And with iOS 11, Apple’s making changes to the way podcasts organize and describe themselves that should make it easier to choose which podcast episodes to listen to, while giving podcasters more insight into just how people listen to podcasts.

Steve Jobs and the missing “Intel Inside” sticker

Ken Segall:

I get that Intel Inside is one of the most successful marketing campaigns in business history. It’s just that after 36 years, that logo starts to feel more like a pollutant than an advertising device.

Thankfully, Macs have remained 100% free of Intel branding since Apple adopted its processors way back in 2006.

We have Steve Jobs’s sensibilities to thank for this. But how it all happened is a fun little story.

No spoilers, a fun read, another great little Steve Jobs anecdote.

UPDATE: Jump to the main Loop post to see video of the “Stickers” quote.

iFixit launches battery replacement kits for MacBook...

Recent MacBooks aren’t exactly noted for their repairability, a change that started in 2012 with the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. Among the many changes introduced was a battery very firmly glued to the chassis, making it next to impossible to replace.

But iFixit likes a challenge, and has now come up with a DIY battery replacement kit which it reckons allows the job to be tackled by mere mortals …

iFixIt introduces battery fix kits for the MacBook...

iFixIt has introduced battery fix kits for the MacBook Prow with Retina Display. In 2012 Apple introduced its sleek, non-upgradable laptop with a battery stubbornly glued to the frame. 

iFixIt has been working on a do-it-yourself repair solution for folks who want to replace the battery in their MacBook Pro Retina for a long time. The new “glue-busting” battery kits reportedly have all the tools and instructions you need to replace your own battery. Pricing ranges from $89.95 to $119.95, depending on your MacBook Pro model.

Future Macs may detect your presence and react...

Future Macs may “wake up” when they detect your presence and take action based on exactly where you are. Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170193282) for “presence sensing.”

The “presence-based functionality” method may include operating the Mac in a reduced power state and collecting a first set of data from a first sensor. Based on the first set of data, the computer determines if an object is within a threshold distance of the Mac. 

If so, the device activates a secondary sensor (a microphone or camera) to collect a second set of data. Based on the second set of data, the Mac determines if the object is a person. If the object is a person, the computer determines a position of the person relative to the computing device and executes a change of state in the computing device based on the position of the person relative to the computing device. 

For example, movement toward the Mac may activate more features, such as providing more options/menus in a user...

Samsung’s Bixby rollout delayed as it struggles to...

Korea Herald:

The English version of Samsung Electronics’ voice-assistant service Bixby has been delayed because the firm lacks the accumulation of big data, which is key to deep learning technology, according to the company Tuesday.


Bixby is now available only in Korean, although Samsung’s mobile chief, Koh Dong-jin, said in April, “Bixby’s English version and Chinese version will be unveiled in May and in June, respectively.”

Didn’t happen.

“Many engineers in the US are making full efforts to develop the English version. But, (due to geographical and language barriers) their frequent reports to and communication with the management located in Korea makes the progress much slower than developing the Korean version here,” said a source on the condition of anonymity.

I was wondering what had become of Bixby.

Rumor: all 2018 iPhones will sport OLED screens

Nikkei sources suggest that Apple will use OLED screens in all 2018 iPhones. Those sources say that the tech giant has tentative plans to release three phone models next year and that all will feature OLED.

Only the premium model of this year’s upcoming “iPhone 8” is believe to sport this type of display. OLED provides a sharper color contrast than LCDs and is bendable. OLED technology is used in many high-end smartphones today

Chances this rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 100%. It’s going to happen, folks.

Airline cabin ban on notebooks and tablets eased,...

This is a bit more encouraging.

According to the BBC, flights from the Abu Dhabi airport are now being exempted from the ban imposed on notebooks and tablets in cabin baggage on certain US-bound flights, and the same now applies to two airlines flying from different airports …

Per the article:

Emirates has said the cabin ban on laptops no longer applies on its flights to the United States. Emirates, which flies to the US from its Dubai hub, said it worked with US authorities to meet new security rules.

Turkish Airlines has also announced that it’s easing its notebook ban as well:

Permission was granted by the Department of Homeland Security after verifying that enhanced screening measures were in place for both passengers and their hand-baggage. Exact details are not being disclosed, but it’s been reported that increased use of explosives-sniffing dogs is one of the measures adopted. The BBC notes that higher-tech screening has recently been...

Apple to announce Q3 2017 financial returns on...

If you want to know how Apple’s doing financially, check in on August 1st.

Apple on Wednesday announced that it will reveal quarterly earnings for the third fiscal quarter of 2017, traditionally the slowest sales period of the year for the company.

The upcoming earnings report is to be followed by a live-streamed conference call Tuesday, Aug. 1, at 2 p.m. Pacific, 5 p.m. Eastern. As usual, Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Luca Maestri are expected to provide commentary on the performance metrics and field questions from investment analysts.

Apple is said to be looking to return to year-over-year growth for the iPhone following a string of quarterly dips. The lucrative holiday shopping season saw iPhone sales return to growth at the end of 2016, but the progress was short lived as sales slumped in the second quarter of 2017.

The company is also expected to announce income from other revenue streams, including Apple Music, iCloud, iTunes and the App Stores....

Poll: If the iPhone 8 is available only in black,...

KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has been making some interesting predictions about the iPhone 8 of late. The most surprising one of these is that it won’t offer any form of Touch ID.

While some have reported him as simply saying that it wouldn’t be embedded in the screen, this appears to be based on missing the significance of the word ‘model’ in what he said.

We predict the OLED model won’t support fingerprint recognition

Art View for macOS a convenient tool for Creative...

By Aaron Lee

If you're a Creative Cloud or Creative Suite user, you should check out Code Line's Art View 2, a Quick Look enhancement that offers "quick answers to common questions."

It allows graphic designers to preview, inspect, and reveal dependent font and image files from within Apple's Quick Look preview feature. Art View works independent of other applications, so users who don't have graphics applications installed are still able to take advantage of its features.

The tool provides users with previews of design files that normally aren't compatible with Quick Look. It also provides info like what fonts, images and colors were used, and reveals dependent files. 

Graphics files are visual by nature. By expanding the types of files that can be seen in Finder windows, dialog boxes and other applications, Art View helps improve the workflow of designers and people that work with them. 

Art View is available as a free, 15-day...

The Digitimes report claims that SK Hynix and Toshiba have fallen short of production by as much as 30% due to poor yields of the 3D NAND chips. Apple has apparently turned to Samsung to pick up the shortfall …

I think the EU overstepped and chose the case against Apple because they saw deep pockets. Even Ireland said Apple owes nothing in back taxes.

InkCase i7 Plus brings a second screen to Apple...

What's better than the screen on an 7 Plus? Two screens! The idea behind the InkCase i7 Plus from Oaxis is to provide your phone with protection and a second screen on the back of the case. That screen uses e-ink technology to provide a beautiful grayscale image without the need for backlighting, so it can display photos, ebooks, your favorite RSS fees, or even information widgets. The InkCase i7 Plus is currently on Kickstarter and has already more than doubled its funding goal, so you can expect to get one in August of 2017 if you support the campaign.

Apple is working on a solution for publishers that send their articles and content to its News app but so far have gotten very little in return, according to AdAge, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the plans.”

Apple News will let top media partners use their own technology to fill the ad space in their content, becoming more of an extension of the publishers' own websites than the walled-off island it is now, the people said. News is a mobile app and news aggregator for iOS devices (and, I hope, someday for the Mac).

According to AdAge, Apple plans to allow publishers to use the ad tech they already employ on their sites, such as Google's DoubleClick for Publishers, to deliver ads into the news service. That would potentially let media partners make as much money from views in Apple News as they do on their own sites, without as much...

I’ve used a few third-party keyboards with the iPad Pro in the past, but for some strange reason I’ve never opted to give Apple’s very-own Smart Keyboard a fair shake.

It’s now my opinion that you should strongly consider pairing the 10.5-inch iPad Pro with the Smart Keyboard, because it fundamentally changes the device for the better. It’s not perfect, but the amount of convenience that it brings to the table makes it highly worth considering.

Here’s how the game is described: “Bomb Defense is a completely different take on the tower defense genre. Combining it with the Puzzle genre, making for a difficult game.

You get a limited amount of money to buy traps, bombs, turrets and walls and place them in clever positions to defend against enemies trying to harm your curious little kitten Mimi who, for some reason, keeps wandering into an array of sinister dungeons and graveyards.

“Any less than optimal defensive plan, or any small mistake in executing it will lead to the death of your kitten. Given your budget for a level, you need to carefully think what objects to buy and carefully plan the exact spots...

Comment: Photobucket’s ‘ransom demand’ illustrates...

There’s an old maxim that there’s no such thing as a free lunch, meaning that anything which appears to be free will have a hidden cost somewhere.

In the tech sector, ‘free’ services generally operate using one of two different business models. The first is ad-funded, where – as the more recently-coined saying has it – you’re the product, not the customer. Some cheat the system by using ad-blockers, but most of us recognize that someone has to pay the bills, and accept exposure to ads as fair exchange for the benefit we receive.

The other model is the upsell, where you get a basic service free of charge but the company hopes to persuade you to pay for access to more features or storage. This again can be fair enough, but one company has just taken a particularly underhand approach to this …

Experience wireless iPhone charging today with these...

This fall, Apple is expected to finally join the ranks of smartphone manufacturers that support wireless charging, but until then most of us will still have to use our charging cable or dock. Why not get a jump on wireless charging without needing to buy a new iPhone? These XVIDA Magnetic iPhone Charging Kits (US$93) include a charging stand and a special case that not only protects your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, but also uses the Qi wireless charging protocol to take your drained iPhone battery back up to 100%.

Qi uses inductive charging. All you need to do is take the iPhone in the XVIDA case and place it near the charging stand, and powerful magnets guide and hold the phone while it's being charged. When the iPhone is...

Austin Mann: 10 years of iPhone photography evolution

Austin Mann, photographer:

Earlier this month, I realized June 29 would mark the 10 year anniversary of the iPhone and began diving into the images I’ve shot with iPhone over the years. As I glanced through the archive, I realized what an amazing journey the last 10 years has been and thought I’d share some of the highlights with you.

Lots of history here. My favorite bit from this dive into the iPhone history rabbit-hole is Austin’s take on the original rollout:

I can still remember the morning of June 29, 2007. I was living in NYC, working at an ad agency, McCann-Erickson. Though I had been following the release of the iPhone and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one, I knew I couldn’t spend the day in line waiting as I had responsibilities at work.

I arrived at my office, however, and my very cool boss looked at me and said, “Austin, what are you doing here?” I was a little confused as it was a standard work day and I was on time. “What do you mean...

Apple’s new Cupertino, California headquarters — a a $5 billion, four-story, 2.8 million-square-foot ring that can be seen from space and that locals call the spaceship — “has already helped transform the surrounding area,” according to the New York Times.

In nearbySunnyvale, 95 development projects are in the planning stages. The city manager, Deanna J. Santana, toldthe Times that she had never seen such action before. In Cupertino, a Main Street living and dining complex opened in early 2016. This downtown enclave includes the Lofts, a 120-unit apartment community opening this fall; small shops; and numerous restaurants and cafes.

Other local businesses are also gearing up...

New York Times on Apple Park

Kathy Chin Leong, New York Times:

City officials and residents say this project is like nothing they’ve seen before. It is even bringing tourists.

Onlookers snap pictures of the spaceship from the streets. TV helicopters circle above. Amateur photographers ask residents if they can stand on driveways to operate their drones, hoping to get a closer look at Apple Park.


The entire project shows off Apple’s obsession with details. The custom windows were made in Germany and are considered the world’s largest panels of curved glass. One pair of glass doors is 92 feet high. The finish on the underground concrete garage, said David Brandt, Cupertino’s city manager, is so shiny it is almost like glass.

“Mind-blowing, mind-blowing, mind-blowing,” the mayor, Savita Vaidhyanathan, said about her visit to the site. “I saw the underground 1,000-seat theater and the carbon-fiber roof. The roof was made in Dubai, and it was transported and assembled here. I...

Another take on the 10.5″ iPad Pro

M.G. Siegler on being asked which iPad is the one to buy:

When pressed, my answer was that for most people, the 9.7″ iPad was probably the one to get. With the latest iterations of the iPad Pro, I think the answer is now much more clear: the new 10.5″ variety is the one to get.

The screen size gap has been closed a bit. The speed gap has been completely erased. The 10.5″ iPad Pro is absolutely amazing.


When you start to use the 10.5″ and then try to go back, you cannot. The 9.7″ iPad feels short and stubby in a way similar to how the 3.5″ iPhone felt after using the 4″ variety. The smaller one now feels like a clown iPad.


Size aside, the screen with its much touted 120Hz refresh rate is incredible. Again, it’s one of those things you have to either be a hardcore iPad user or use a newer iPad Pro versus an older iPad side-by-side to truly appreciate. Everything is just so much smoother.

At first, it’s a little weird. It...

Feds oppose retroactive European tax bill filed...

A report from Reuters claims that two sources within the Trump administration have filed with the European Union General Court to opposition the $14.8 billion mandate by the European Commission against Apple. One of the two sources claims the appeals court will heard the case in late 2018.

Last year the EU ruled that Apple must repay 13 billion euros ($14.5 billion) in back taxes dating back to 2003-2014. Europe’s anti-trust and consumer investigation agency claimed that Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands have attracted investment and jobs by helping big companies avoid tax in other countries, including EU members. Ireland Finance Minister Noonan said the country "disagrees profoundly" with the back tax ruling by the European Commission. 

Tim Cook has branded the European Commission ruling “total political crap.” Apple’s CEO also suggested the "retroactive" tax...

Rumor: Next-gen iPhones to feature wireless charging...

It looks like there’s some interesting news where the 2017 iPhones and their charging features are concerned.

A current rumor has suggested that the iPhone 8 and its companion devices, the “iPhone 7s” and the “iPhone 7s Plus” will all adopt glass bodies with metal frames to facilitate WPC-standard wireless charging functionality. WPC-standard refers to the Wireless Power Consortium, which supports the Qi wireless charging functionality built into many Android devices.

Per KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, wireless charging will be available as an option accessory alongside the new iPhones. As such, it might not be a default feature out of the box. The rumor is in line with predictions that the iPhone 8 will support inductive charging rather than a true wireless charging feature.

Kuo also believes that while the iPhone 8 will include an embedded USB-C power delivery IC for higher charging efficiency, it will continue to ship with the same 5W power...

Hands on with Photos for macOS High Sierra

Jason Snell, Six Colors:

This week Apple is unleashing the first public betas of the next versions of its two major operating systems, iOS and macOS, on the world. One of the major areas of improvement in macOS High Sierra is to the Photos app, which is only a couple of years old and has plenty of room to grow. I literally wrote the book on Photos, so it’s been interesting to watch Apple’s replacement for iPhoto as it has grown and changed.

Here’s a look at the changes and new features coming to Photos for Mac as a part of macOS High Sierra.

A brand new editing pane, support for third party editors has been enhanced, and much more. If you use Photos on your Mac, take the time to read through this.

Rumor: Next-gen iPhone could replace Touch ID with...

It’s a rumor, but it’s a pretty interesting rumor.

Bloomberg has reported that Apple is currently testing using 3D facial detection as a replacement for Touch ID fingerprint authentication. The report also states that the next-gen iPhone could include the ProMotion increased refresh rate displays seen in the new iPad Pros as well as a dedicated Apple Neural Engine chip for handling AI.

As quoted:

With the iPhone 8 expected to feature a design with a dramatically reduced bezel, analysts have made various predictions about where Touch ID will go including within the display (as Qualcomm recently displayed), behind the iPhone, and in the power switch.

The article also notes that the facial recognition feature could replace the Touch ID system for unlocking devices and authorizing payments:

…Apple is testing an improved security system that allows users to log in, authenticate payments, and launch secure apps by scanning their face, according to...

Apple wants to help you improve your golf game

Apple wants to help you improve your golf game. The company has been granted a patent (number 9,697,540) for “golf score, marketing, and reporting system and method of operation.”

And forget CarPlay. We’re talking GolfPlay!

The invention relates generally to systems in which golfers keep their scores using a mobile or portable computing device (most certainly an iPhone) that’s handheld or integrated into or attached to a golf car and/or which provides ads to golfers through such computing device. 

What’s more, the patent involves a comprehensive golf scoring, marketing and reporting system and method in which golf scores and/or other information (e.g., information pertaining to selected advertisements) are automatically reported and/or communicated to a golfer upon completion of or during a round of golf. 

The scenario is this: a golfer operates a mobile terminal during play of a round of golf. The mobile terminal displays at least an electronic score...

GEAR 4's Buckingham is the perfect keyboard...

By Chris Gannon

If you are looking for a keyboard less case for your 9.7-inch iPad, your search is over. This case has it all: the Gear 4 Buckingham, but a better name may be “simply genius” because that would describe this case perfectly.

The first thing you’ll notice from this case is the simple build. Simple but of great quality. You won’t have to worry about putting your expensive iPad in the Buckingham. The tablet fits in the holder very snugly, so you don’t at all have to worry about it falling out. 

At the same time — and this may be one of my favorite thing about the Buckingham — it’s also not too hard to get out the iPad out and use it without the case. I don’t care how great any case is, part of the joy of using an iPad is for reading with no case attached. That’s very easy to do with the Buckingham.

The case features six inside...

US Government Seeks To Intervene in Apple's EU...

The U.S. government has sought to intervene in Apple's appeal against an EU order to pay back up to 13 billion euros ($14.8 billion) in Irish taxes, Reuters is reporting. From a report: iPhone maker Apple took its case to the Luxembourg-based General Court, Europe's second-highest, in December after the European Commission issued the record tax demand saying the U.S. company won sweetheart tax deals from the Irish government which amounted to illegal subsidies. The decision was criticized by the Obama administration which said the European Union was helping itself to cash that should have ended up in the United States. The Trump administration, which has tentatively proposed a tax break on $2.6 trillion in corporate profits being held offshore as part of its tax reform, has not said anything in public about the case.
