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.

Robbers snag 313 iPhone X units being delivered to...

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.

Where Apple’s “Find My iPhone” and remote lockout features have led to a drop in stolen devices, thieves can still turn a profit by getting...

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...

Upwork, the largest freelancing website, today released its newest quarterly index of the hottest skills in the U.S. freelance job market. The Upwork Skills Index ranks the site’s 20 fastest-growing skills and is part of a quarterly series that sheds light on new and emerging skills freelancers are providing. This comes on the heels of the “Freelancing in America: 2017” study, the most comprehensive measure of the U.S. independent workforce, which found that 57.3 million Americans (36 percent of the U.S. workforce) freelanced in the past year and also predicts that the majority of the U.S. workforce will freelance within a decade.

This is pretty interesting data because it comes from a freelance website. Demand for Final Cut Pro grew more than 200 percent year-over-year, while Swift grew 100 percent.

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.

“Even by Apple’s high standards of migrating users, the rapid take up of iOS 11 has been impressive,” says Statcounter CEO Aodhan Cullen. “The rapid rise of iOS 11 has implications for digital advertisers. “iOS 11’s feature called Intelligent Tracking Prevention makes it harder for advertisers and publishers to track users online.”

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...

Rene Ritchie iPhone X review: “The best damn product...

This is a long review, chock full of detail. Definitely worth your time.

A few pieces on Face ID, just to give you a taste:

Here’s where there’s a difference between Touch ID and Face ID: Touch ID throws away the original enrollment images of your fingerprints almost immediately. Face ID keeps the original enrollment images of your face (but crops them as tightly as possible so as not to store background information). That’s for convenience. Apple wants to be able to update the neural networks for Face ID without you having to re-register your face each time.

And:

The True Depth camera reads the data and captures a randomized sequence of 2D images and depth maps which are then digitally signed and send to the Secure Enclave for comparison. (Randomization also protects against spoofing attacks.)

The portion of the Neural Engine inside the Secure Enclave converts the captured data into math and the secure Face ID neural networks compare it with the...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170315691) for a “mapping application with an interactive compass.” It involves the Maps app for macOS, iOS, and watchOS devices.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that, with the proliferation of computing devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops, users are enjoying numerous applications of numerous kinds that can be run on their devices. One popular type is the mapping app, which allows user to browse maps. 

Despite their popularity, these mapping apps have shortcomings with their user interfaces and features that can cause inconvenience to the users, according to Apple. For example, users may be limited in the variety of tools they may use to navigate a map. Furthermore, the existing tools may be limited in the variety of operations that they may be used to perform. 

Apple’s idea: a mapping app that includes several “novel” on-screen controls. In some embodiments, these novel controls include one or...

ACLU raises privacy concerns over app developer...

Ben Lovejoy, 9to5Mac:

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has raised privacy concerns about developer access to the facial expressions of iPhone X users. In particular, they say that Apple allows developers to capture facial expression data and store it on their own servers.

When the iPhone X was launched, Apple was careful to stress that the 3D face recognition model used by Face ID was stored only on the phone itself. The data is never transferred to Apple servers. But the ACLU says that app developers are allowed to transmit and store some face data.

Interesting article. Lots of layers to this issue. There’s face tracking (think Animoji) and attention detection (are you actually watching your screen). How much of this data is hidden behind an API? In other words, does Apple simply tell a developer whether you are paying attention to the screen, or do they give you more specific data, like the current screen location on which you are currently focused...

Joe Rossignol, MacRumors:

Apple has determined that some Apple Watch Series 3 models have an issue causing “edge stripes” to appear on the display after time.

In an internal memo distributed to Genius Bars and Apple Authorized Service Providers, Apple said the issue is to be treated like any other Apple Watch repair. Since the issue appears to be a manufacturing defect, the repair should be free under Apple’s standard one-year limited warranty policy.

If you have a GPS Series 3 Apple Watch, or plan to buy one, take a look at the image in Joe’s post so you know what to look for. Sounds like Apple acknowledges the issue, has your back if you do run into this.

In December 2015, a class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court, Eastern Division of New York, claiming Apple engaged in planned obsolescence and knew of potential compatibility issues iPhone 4s owners upgraded to iOS 9. “The update significantly slowed down their iPhones and interfered with the normal usage of the device, leaving Plaintiff with a difficult choice: use a slow and buggy device...

The filing is in support of a lawsuit filed by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra in the Northern District of California. Becerra filed an additional motion — the one supported by Apple — on Wednesday that seeks to put a block on the withdrawal of DACA.

macOS and iOS market share down (slightly) in October

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for both macOS and iOS dipped (slightly)  last month. 

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 6.25% of the global market share in October, down from from 6.35% percent in September (that’s global market share; in the U.S. it’s over 13%). April 2016’s 9.2% was an all-time high, according to NetMarketShare’s measurements. Windows remains dominant with 90.77%.

iOS had 31.46% in October, up from 32.34% in September. This compares to 66.74% for Android, 0.73% for Windows Phone, and 0.37% for Java ME. The all-time high for iOS was in July 2012 with 65.94%.

NetMarketShares’ monthly surveys don’t measure market share in terms of computer systems sold. Instead they sample data from visitors to some 40,000 web sites operated by their clients. And note that NetMarketShare’s numbers don’t equate to sales.

Cartographer for the Mac makes it easy to add...

By Aaron Lee

False Victories' Cartographer is a maps app for the Mac that allows developers to add annotations to maps without the need to enter coordinates by hand. The app has been designed to work with Apple's MapKit framework on both macOS and iOS. 

Annotations and shapes can be colored and titled with appropriate details. Once a map has been annotated, the details can be stored as a custom file format, or in the standard GeoJSON format. This exported file can then be used in a developer's own MapKit application saving the time of having to enter all the data manually.

Cartographer has a range of potential applications and was initially written to aid in the development of an iOS application for a music festival. This allowed numerous different locations within the festival including points of interest to be added and edited quickly, decreasing the App development time considerably and allowing last minute changes.
