New batch of LG UltraFine 5K displays will have...




After delving into the cause of wi-fi router interference, LG has redesigned the shielding on future production batches of the Thunderbolt 3 UltraFine 5K display -- but not only may this not directly address other user's connectivity complaints, how existing monitor owners will get the problem fixed is not yet clear.

Apple, India, and the benefit of building locally

Indian Express:

India is a crucial market for Apple in terms of future growth, especially with the US, Europe and China markets pretty much saturated by now. It would not have been an easy decision for Apple, given that it will have to source about 30 per cent or inputs, locally. How they cross this hurdle will be interesting, especially since the company has sought exemption from this norm. There is a possibility that the government might actually grant a concession given that getting Apple to make in India will be a badge the Modi government can wear proudly on its sleeve.

Apple manufacturing in India is a win for Apple, a win for the Modi government. Apple expands their market, India gets a prestige brand to manufacture locally.

Actual manufacturing is much easier, given that both Foxconn and Wistron Corp are already in India. In fact, Apple seems to have decided that Wistron Corp will be the first to make the iPhone in India, most probably the iPhone SE if...

Apple set to begin making iPhones in India by end of...

Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. will begin assembling iPhones in India by the end of April, a regional minister says, heightening its focus on the world’s fastest-growing major smartphone market as growth slows elsewhere.

The U.S. company has tapped Taiwan’s Wistron Corp. to put together its phones in the tech capital of Bangalore in Karnataka, said Priyank Kharge, the state’s information technology minister. Apple executives met with him in January and confirmed the timeline, he said in an interview.

And:

It signals a renewed focus on the country, where it just scrapes into the top 10, as growth begins to slow in China and other more mature markets. The Cupertino, California-based company is said to have put forward a long list of demands in negotiations with India’s federal government, including a 15-year tax holiday to import components and equipment.

This is a big step for Apple, both in expanding the market for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, etc.,...

Happy Birthday! AWT Turns Two Today

Happy Birthday to Us!

It's hard to believe, but Apple World Today has been up and running for two years today. We want to thank our readers for their continued support of the website, and we'll continue to bring you news, reviews and more every day as long as we can.

As you may know, Apple World Today (AWT) rose from the ashes of The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW), a popular site that apparently didn't get enough monthly views (over 6 million, if I remember correctly) for owner AOL to justify continue running the site. All of the content that had been written was transferred over to Engadget, but all of the writers were literally out on the street. 

I had the idea of starting up a new site to carry on some of the traditions of TUAW, and bloggers Dave Caolo and Kelly Hodgkins joined me to launch the new site. Our first month was great with excellent revenues, but then reality set in and we began to see our dreams of an ad-free site going downhill...quickly. ...

Apple to start assembling iPhones in Bangalore by...

Apple plans to start assembling the iPhone in Bangalore by end April under a contract manufacturing arrangement with Taiwan's Wistron.

The move by the company comes even as it awaits approval from the federal government for some of its proposals for lowering the import duties on components and for creating an ecosystem of local manufacturers who can supply components for the smartphones, according to sources close to the situation.

The Karnataka state, of which Bangalore is the capital, has announced Apple’s intentions to make the iPhone in the city.

Priyank Kharge, state minister for information technology, confirmed on telephone that the company had been cleared to make the phones in Bangalore and said it was a validation of the state's industry-friendly policies. Having a leading tech company making its products in the state could also have spin-off benefits in terms of app development and work in the area of artificial intelligence by the state's highly-...

LG UltraFine 5K monitors experiencing errors within...

Well, this is kind of a mess.

LG’s UltraFine 5K monitor, which has become something of a spiritual successor to Apple’s Thunderbolt display and began shipping out from the Apple online store this week, appears to be suffering from a major fault wherein it will begin flickering when places within two meters (6.5 feet) of a wireless router. Once the flickering has begun, the monitor will go black and become unusable.

An LG Electronics support person confirmed the issue, saying it “only happens for the 5K monitors we have, not other LG monitors.”

It’s also been noted that, if plugged into a MacBook Pro, the failure can lead to being forced to reboot the notebook to bring it back. The failure does not occur when the monitor is out of a two meter range of a wireless router.

Following the release of the monitor, a few positive reviews came in, while a number of negative reviews have piled up. Some of them explicitly call out the router-proximity issue, but...

Apple, other tech firms pen open letter to Trump...

On Wednesday night, a story broke that the heads of several major technology firms, including Apple, were prepping an open letter to United States President Donald Trump as a means to voice opposition to the immigration executive order that he signed last Friday.

On Thursday, a draft of the full letter was shared online. The letter detailed the importance of immigrants in the U.S., shared concerns as to how the Trump administration’s immigration ban will affect employees with visas and explains that the companies are prepared to lend a hand to help the Trump administration make logical and necessary changes if and when it is ready to accept the help.

The companies involved with the creation of the open letter are said to include Facebook, Google, Uber, Microsoft, Stripe, and more. The technology companies drafting the letter are reportedly working to include non-tech companies as well, but as yet none have joined.

The letter currently reads as follows:...

Perhaps the Mac is the real ‘future of personal...

Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that the iPad is the “clearest expression of our vision of the future of personal computing.” However, I’m thinking that the Mac may fill that role with the iPad thriving as a complementary device.

On Tuesday Apple reported that its Mac line generated record single-quarter revenue of $7.2 billion, beating the previous mark set three years earlier by $300 million. The Mac not only returned to growth, but generated its highest quarterly revenue ever. 

Apple sold approximately 5.37 million Macs during the December quarter, a 1.2% gain over the same period the year before and the fourth-largest number ever. Macs accounted for 9.2% of Apple's total revenue of $78.4 billion, and the computer group slipped into the No. 2 spot on the company's list, ahead of the Services category. It was the first time in four quarters that Mac revenue topped that of Services (which includes Apple Music, iCloud, its online stores, etc.).

Room Lighting Calc simplifies the generation of...

By Aaron Lee

If you need to generate morphologically defined parametric objects (vaults, quadric, domes, etc..) or generate primitive objects, (cubes, spheres, cones, etc.), you may find Brotens' Room Lighting Calc for macOS handy.

The light sources, calculated as volumetric sources, are managed entirely by Room Lighting Calc, which allows you to import, display, edit and format: IESNA LM-63 (ASCII text files normally used by manufacturers of lighting fixtures in North America); EULUMDAT (formed by European standards); and DXF drawings and data files.

Photometric solids are summarized in 36 azimuthal C-curves and 180 zenithal gamma-angles, while the color of the lamps is given by the color temperature or real color. Room Lighting Calc can export to RTF a complete list, formatted according to user needs, of the installed products and special items, full of economic computing and electrical power in order to simplify the design procedures that...

LG fixes WiFi interference problems with UltraFine...

Earlier in the week, we reported that the LG UltraFine 5K display can be effectively unusable if placed near a WiFi router with some kind of radio interference causing the monitor to regularly black out and hang the connected MacBook Pro.

LG has now said that it has identified the issue as a hardware problem and that all new units made after February will be unaffected by proximity to home routers. Existing owners of the UltraFine display, recommended by Apple as the best companion to the 2016 MacBook Pro, will need servicing to add ‘enhanced shielding’ (via Recode).

Hacker Dumps iOS Cracking Tools Allegedly Stolen...

Last year, when Apple refused to unlock the security on an iPhone 5c belonging to the San Bernardino shooter, the FBI turned to an Israeli mobile forensics firm called Cellebrite to find another way into the encrypted iPhone. Now Motherboard reports that a hacker has released files allegedly from Cellebrite that demonstrate how cracking tools couldn't be kept private. From a report: Now the hacker responsible has publicly released a cache of files allegedly stolen from Cellebrite relating to Android and BlackBerry devices, and older iPhones, some of which may have been copied from publicly available phone cracking tools." The ripped, decrypted and fully functioning Python script set to utilize the exploits is also included within," the hacker wrote in a README file accompanying the data dump. The hacker posted links to the data on Pastebin. It's not clear when any of this code was used in the UFED. Many of the directory names start with "ufed" followed by a different type of phone...

Apple has been hit with another class action lawsuit in California. This one alleges that the company forced users to upgrade to iOS 7 by essentially breaking FaceTime in iOS 6. The move to render FaceTime useless in iOS 6, according to the lawsuit, was primarily driven by Apple wanting to avoid paying increasingly high data costs to Akamai.

Today’s suit alleges, however, that the forced upgrade to use FaceTime rendered older devices like iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S unusable.

After what felt like an incredibly long wait, Apple refreshed its MacBook Pro lineup last fall, bringing a new design, improved specifications, and the new Touch Bar. The biggest change to some users, however, has been the switch to USB-C. Following suit from the 12-inch MacBook, the new MacBook Pros switched entirely to USB-C with the refresh.

While the switch to USB-C brings a handful of benefits, there are some users who are still longing for legacy ports.

If you could add one port back to the new MacBook Pro, what would it be?

When Apple released iOS 10 last September, they pushed in a small change when connecting to wireless networks. Tucked away under the Wi-Fi settings, iOS now warns users when connecting to insecure networks that it exposes a user’s network traffic. The easy answer to this is to simply not connect to public wireless networks, but that’s something that most people will just ignore. If users won’t stop connecting to insecure public networks, they could at least start using VPNs and Apple could make it easy to do that.

Here’s further evidence that Apple wants to develop “smart bands” for Apple Watch.

According to a recently published patent, Apple has developed a way for Apple Watch bands to incorporate a wearable battery that could charge the device on the go. These batteries could be partially embedded within a band or attach to an existing band, and they’d rely on the Apple Watch’s inductive charging technology to transfer power.

Based on the images included in the patent application, a battery band can be made of flexible material to better accomodate a design that wraps around underneath the band. It also has a charging plate, similar to the Magnetic Charging Puck but way slimmer, that can rest on the belly of the watch to charge it on contact. The charging plate comes with magnets to help align the inductive coils, as well as perforations or...

iPhone U.S. installed base has reached 132 million

Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), has released its analysis of the results from its research on Apple for the fiscal quarter that ended Dec. 31, 2016. The research group found that the iPhone U.S. installed base reached 132 million units as of the end of 2016.

Within the installed base, the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus comprise 25 million units, or 19% of the total. The two year-old iPhone 6 and 6 Plus comprise 51 million units, or 38% of the total installed base.

“iPhone 7 and 7 Plus penetrated the U.S. market slightly stronger, at 19% of the installed base, than the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus did a year ago, but not nearly at the level the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus did two years ago,” says Josh Lowitz, CIRP partner and co-founder. “At this time last year, the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus accounted for about 17% of the US installed based of iPhones, compared to an incredible 30% for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in December 2014...

When Apple refused to compromise iOS security last year and unlock the iPhone 5c belonging to the San Bernardino shooter, the FBI turned to an Israeli mobile forensics firm called Cellebrite to find a way in to the encrypted iPhone. Now Motherboard reports that a hacker has released files allegedly from Cellebrite that demonstrate how cracking tools can’t be kept private.

Outlook for iOS speeds up work with third-party add...

Users of Microsoft's Outlook app for iPhone and iPad can now get work done quicker using third-party integrations.

As of Thursday, Outlook for iOS supports add-ins, which let software companies build extensions to their own products that interact with emails in Outlook on a user’s smartphone and tablet. At launch, the app supports add-ins from Evernote, GIPHY, Nimble, Trello and Smartsheet, in addition to those that Microsoft has created.

For example, users will be able to translate emails using a Microsoft Translator add-in, add cards to a Trello board straight from their email and quickly reply to an email thread with a funny animated GIF.

Facebook Aims to Carve Out a Spot in the Living Room


Facebook is working on a video app for set-top boxes, according to a Wednesday report. The social network wants to deliver longer-form video content -- and with it video ads -- to the living room TV, the one screen it has been unable to reach. The Facebook app soon could be available on a variety of set-top boxes, including Apple TV. The initiative reportedly began in earnest last summer, after incubating for years as a concept. News of this effort follows Facebook's recent announcement that it was refining its News Feed to favor longer-form videos, which can include mid-roll ad breaks.

My LG UltraFine Display 5K isn’t affected by...

In writing for 9to5Mac, Zac Hall reported that his LG UltraFine Display 5K became unusable if located near a router. Though I don’t doubt Zac’s results, mine have been totally different. 

Zac found that the UltraFine 5K Display, which Apple touts as a great monitor for use with the latest MacBook Pros, became unusable when positioned within 6.6-feet of a router (in his case, the latest Apple AirPort Extreme). He then found this note on a review for the LG display on Apple’s website:

Zac says that, since moving the router to another room, his UltraFine 5K Display has remained connected without issue.

However, I’ve been using an UltraFine 5K Display for weeks with it located less than two feet from an eero router. Does the monitor work properly near some routers and not others? Do some of the displays have the issue, but not others? Is this a problem with the 4K display? Whatever the problem, just be warned...

External Link: Apple Working on ARM-Based Power Nap...

Mark Gurman and Ian King have reported in Bloomberg that Apple is working on a new ARM-based chip for future Macs that would manage Power Nap functionality. Power Nap enables recent Macs to perform certain tasks even while asleep, such as checking for new email messages, syncing iCloud data, and updating software, and the rumored new chip would reduce Power Nap’s already low energy usage. This story has fueled speculation that Apple will dump Intel CPUs for ARM-based processors like those it makes for its many non-Mac devices. However, nothing in this news indicates such a major shift yet — this chip would merely supplement the core Intel processor’s capabilities, much like the ARM chip that controls the Touch Bar in the 2016 MacBook Pro.

The fees come into play if you continue to use the Roku in addition to your Comcast set-top box after the beta trial wraps. At that point, Comcast will treat the Roku device like any other “additional outlet.” That additional outlet incurs a $9.95 fee, minus the bring-your-own-device credit of $2.50 for using a Roku, instead of Comcast’s box. This is also how a secondary outlet that connects to Comcast’s network via a TiVo would be charged and credited.

Basically business as usual.

The latest iPhone ownership data from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners shows the size of the challenge facing Apple in making the iPhone 8 a success.

Its research indicates that well over half of all iPhone owners have the iPhone 6 or later.

Within the installed base, the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus comprise 25 million units, or 19% of the total. The two year-old iPhone 6 and 6 Plus comprise 51 million units, or 38% of the total installed base.

While that’s an impressive past achievement for Apple, with its record holiday season sales a major contributor, it does mean the company is facing a tougher challenge this year …

The truth behind the MacBook Pro’s ‘terrible’...

Gordon Mah Ung, Macworld, gets to the bottom of the MacBook Pro’s disparate battery tests. Most testers got great battery life, others found it to be terrible. Why? Turns out, it’s a bug:

In looking at other battery run-down scenarios, I ran smack into a problem that’s likely at fault for many of the confusing battery life issues with the laptop, at least in macOS Sierra 10.12.2. On occasion, the laptop’s discrete GPU would just get stuck on and consume power even when it wasn’t used. Others had reported this too, but you’d really have to stumble onto it.

I was able to reproduce the issue in Safari by opening Google Maps, which would cause the laptop to switch over to the GPU for the WebGL workload. Opening additional browser tabs and then closing the Google Maps tab would, on occasion, leave the GPU consuming up to 10 watts of power while doing absolutely nothing.

Terrific job homing in on this. Nothing helps tech support more than a problem they can reliably...

As promised, Fire Emblem Heroes is beginning to roll out in the Google Play and iOS App stores. Launching in 30 countries today, the game follows the so-called freemium model, with a free initial download bolstered with in-app purchases to aid in your progress.

According to Nintendo, the game puts a touch-screen spin on the console version of Fire Emblem, letting you complete in “strategic turn-based battles streamlined for on-the-go play.” Early reviews on the Play Store, from users in the first countries that were able to download the game, were mostly positive, with players praising the graphics and gameplay, though some...

Davis Brand Capital, a market intelligence and customer insight firm, has released the eighth annual Davis Brand Capital 25 ranking, a global study of overall brand performance evaluating companies' abilities to successfully manage brand value, competitive performance, innovation strength, company culture and social impact. Apple dropped from the top spot to the runner-up spot.

The 2016 Davis Brand Capital 25 ranked companies again beat all public market indexes. A hypothetical stock portfolio of Davis Brand Capital 25 companies would have returned 17.4% in 2016, beating the Dow by 2.2 percentage points, the S&P 500 by 6.2 percentage points and the NASDAQ by 7.6 percentage points.

After five years atop the list, Apple (#2) lost its number one spot to Alphabet (#1), due in part to Google's increasing dominance and Apple's "slowing sales," according to Brand Davis (though, based on Apple's latest financials...

They’ll be powered by analytics and customized to further drive the airline's digital transformation, enhancing how United serves its customers.

Over the past several years, United has increasingly sought to untether its global workforce by putting the unique capabilities of iPhone and iPad in the hands of employees, according to United's vice president of operations technology Jason Birnbaum. This collaboration will further heighten that strategy, with IBM set to develop a suite of  IBM MobileFirst for iOS apps – both market ready and custom iOS apps – for the airline's growing deployment of iOS devices, he adds.

Mark Gurman and Ian King, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. is designing a new chip for future Mac laptops that would take on more of the functionality currently handled by Intel Corp. processors, according to people familiar with the matter.

The chip, which went into development last year, is similar to one already used in the latest MacBook Pro to power the keyboard’s Touch Bar feature, the people said. The updated part, internally codenamed T310, would handle some of the computer’s low-power mode functionality, they said. The people asked not to be identified talking about private product development. It’s built using ARM Holdings Plc. technology and will work alongside an Intel processor.

According to the patent filing, a wearable power apparatus for a wearable electronic device includes one or more conductors, one or more batteries connected to the conductor, and/or an inductive coil that attaches to the wearable electronic device to inductively transmit power from the battery to the wearable electronic device, such as while the wearable electronic device is worn. 

The power apparatus may have attachment mechanisms that attach to a band coupled to the wearable electronic device. Alternatively or additionally, the power apparatus may be at least partially embedded within the band. The inductive coil may also receive power for the battery from another inductive coil.
