IDC: watchOS to stay atop the smartwatch platform at...

A year after the launch of the Apple Watch established a new benchmark for the worldwide smartwatch market, new smartwatch shipments are expected to see only modest growth for the rest of 2016 due to late-in-the-year and iterative product releases. According to a new forecast from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker, total smartwatch shipments will reach 20.1 million units in 2016, an increase of 3.9% from the 19.4 million...

Apple Explores the Idea Of Killing Headphone Jack On...

Less than two weeks after Apple unveiled its headphone jack-less iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the company is already exploring the idea of doing the same on its flagship computing lineup. An anonymous reader shares a report on The Next Web: Apple might be going all-in with the wireless revolution as the company is now allegedly considering killing the headphone jack on the MacBook Pro. Users are reporting that as of recently Apple has been asking them to fill in a survey about the way they use their MacBook Pro and one of the questions pertains particularly to the headphone jack. Shared by Blake A. via Twitter, the question reads "Do you ever use the headphone port on your MacBook Pro with Retina display?", suggesting Apple is exploring going jackless with its laptops in the future. Given the Cupertino company just ditched the audio jack on the iPhone 7, the change is likely to eventually come to other Apple products too -- the real question is when.

Contract manufacturer Magna Steyr still reportedly has roughly a dozen engineersworking on a car at Apple facilities in Sunnyvale, California, reports AppleInsider and Bloomberg

The source of the information didn't tell Bloomberg exactly what aspects the engineers are contributing to. However, it hints that Apple is still planning to build a full-fledged vehicle, even with the New York Times suggesting the company is more narrowly concentrated on a self-driving platform. The implication may be that Apple plans to develop self-driving technology first, then shift the focus back to...

Apple’s packaging game still good

In the middle of Jason Snell’s iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 writeup is this nugget:

One pulled tab and the plastic wrap around the iPhone box unravels. Inside there’s a little paperboard package that features the shockingly tiny Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter, pinned like it’s smiling at you, and on the flip side of the same bundle, your Lightning EarPods. It’s adorable, compact, and plastic free.

Follow the link (Jason’s writeups are always worth the trip), check out the image. Just look at that packaging design. And it’s all made out of recyclable cardboard. Apple is the Steph Curry of packaging.

iBag, anyone? Apple files for a patent for a paper...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20160264304) with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for a “bag.” More precisely: a paper bag that may include a container formed of white solid bleached sulfate paper with at least 60% post-consumer content.

Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product.

The patent is apparently part of Apple’s environmentally inspired move away from plastic bags once used in its retail stores. The bag may have a reinforcement insert adhered to its interior, which may extend across and strengthen a fold of the bag container. And the bag handle may be formed of paper fibers knitted in an 8-stitch circular-knit pattern, and may have a diameter of at least 6.5 millimeters. 

Apple has also applied for a patent (number 2016026738) for “systems and methods for...

Someone better go let all those folks camped out in front of the Apple Store know. And if someone paid them to camp out, do they still get paid?

Apple’s official statement:

We couldn’t be happier with the initial response to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and we are looking forward to beginning sales through our retail stores and partners around the world.

Beginning Friday, limited quantities of iPhone 7 in silver, gold, rose gold, and black will be available for walk-in customers at Apple retail stores. During the online pre-order period, initial quantities of iPhone 7 Plus in all finishes and iPhone 7 in jet black sold out and will not be available for walk-in customers. Availability at partner locations for all finishes may vary and we recommend checking directly with them.

Customers can continue to order all models in all colors on apple.com. We sincerely appreciate our customers’ patience as we work hard to get the new iPhone into the hands of everyone...

I’ll definitely be switching to Dark Mode.

In comparing the iPhone 7‘s Geekbench scores to a variety of flagship Android handsets, John Gruber noted that it tops the rankings in multi-core performance and leaves everything else for dust when it comes to single-core. The iPhone’s single-core score of 3,450 is almost twice as fast as the second-ranked phone, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 (see below).

He also made a couple of other interesting comparisons, comparing the iPhone 7 against MacBook Air models and the 2013 MacBook Pro …

Walden indicates Verizon had access (as did AT&T) to the iPhone before T-Mobile or Sprint and counts a larger base to compare figures against because of it.

Hands-on: Beats Solo3 Wireless — the first available...

Apple made a big, polarizing splash when it announced its new wireless AirPods during last week’s iPhone 7 keynote. The AirPods, which are completely devoid of any wires, were met with plenty of mixed reactions online. Whether or not you agree with the design of the AirPods is one thing, but the new W1 wireless chip, Apple’s first, is promising to bring a better overall wireless audio experience to the masses.

Unfortunately, the AirPods don’t ship until late October, so unless you’re among the few who received early review units, you’ll have to wait until the fall before you can experience the $159 wireless earphones for yourself. That said, you can still take Apple’s new wireless W1 chip for a spin, arguably the most important component of its AirPods, anyway.

Apple may be ditching the headphone jack on the Mac

Apple ditched the headphone jack on the iPhone 7/7 Plus, and it may be planning to do the same with Macs. As noted on Twitter, Apple is surveying some MacBook Pro customers to see if they use the laptop's headphone jack.

MacRumors reports that Apple is also asking users about battery life and other ports, including the SD card slot. One question asked "How do you upload photos from a digital camera or phone to your MacBook Pro with Retina Display?" An upgraded version of the MacBook Pro is expected (or at least hoped) to be unveiled next month.

Callblock: block calls from telemarketers

Callblock represents the start of an interesting new app category. Apple supports something called CallKit, similar to the content-blocking API that allows ad-blocking in Safari. CallKit allows you to build filtering rules to block calls by name and number.

The team that built Callblock spent most of their development time compiling a directory of telemarketers and setting up the infrastructure to keep the directory up to date.

So far, since I’ve had this installed, I have not gotten a single telemarketing call. Coincidence? Perhaps. But I’ll keep Callblock enabled, just in case.

Japan’s METI: Apple and Google practices hamper...

A report by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) — as noted by Nikkei — says Apple and Google engage in practices that undermine competition in the smartphone app market by making the most of their control over distribution channels.

The report looked at how these two firms, and others, use their positions of power to decide what app developers can and can’t do. Restricting what payment methods developers can accept and limiting their pricing freedom may not directly violate Japan's anti-monopoly law, but these practices lead to elimination of competitors, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry argues. A study group established at the ministry in January compiled the report by incorporating a survey of app developers that was conducted jointly with the Japan Fair Trade Commission.

Apple hires former Time Warner Cable exec

Apple has hired former Time Warner Cable exec Peter Stern as a vice president working on cloud services, which includes the technology company’s subscription offerings such as Apple Music and a potential streaming television service, reports the Wall Street Journal.

He was most recently chief product, people, and strategy officer at Time Warner Cable, but left when it was bought by Charter Communications. Stern will report to Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet software and services, according to the WSJ. His hiring is sure to revive speculation that Apple is preparing its own streaming television service (which may be true).

Apple’s Web TV offering, as originally planned (at least according to the rumor mill), was to be anchored by broadcasters such as ABC, CBS and Fox, but wouldn't include smaller channels...

Rumor: Current version of the Mac Pro hits 1,000...

The 2013 Mac Pro may be the final version of this model with no successor in the works.

As of September 13th, 1,000 days have passed since Apple released the first version of the redesigned Mac Pro computer.

The current Mac Pro came out on December 19th 2013, meaning that programmers and video professionals who need a high-performing Mac and buy one today will only have a couple years’ use before it becomes what Apple SVP Phil Schiller describes as a “really sad” five-year-old PC.

Oddly enough, this isn’t even the oldest model Apple still sells and you can inexplicably still buy the non-retina MacBook Pro that was released 1,555 days ago in June 2012.

Still, Apple is rumored to be revamping its Mac lineup in 2017 with a significant...

This allows the company to capitalize on its vision for more activity in social payments, which have taken off in China through the WeChat app. Circle chief executive Jeremy Allaire, who previously founded a number of successful ventures including online video platform Brightcove, says that after WeChat opened itself up for third-party developers to build apps on top of it, Wechat saw explosive growth as it added business services, utilities, payments and other services offered by third-party apps.

Double-click it to return to the last used app. Single-click it to return to the home screen. Press and hold it to use Siri. 

You can turn the Digital Crown to use Time Travel, zoom, scroll, or adjust what's on the screen. On the Apple Watch Series 2, turn it to gradually wake the display and slowly increase the brightness. Also, on Apple Watch Series 2, turn the Digital Crown to unlock the screen during a swimming workout.

Fifteen months ago, Apple launched Apple Music, and more than 17 million subscribers are now using the service. But it hasn’t been without problems. The interface Apple offered in iTunes and in the iOS Music app was confusing, and it turned music listening into a chore.

Apple paid attention to users’ complaints, and has now released version 2 of Apple Music, to coincide with the release of iOS 10 and its updated Music app, and iTunes 12.5, which offers a number of tweaks and changes.

You’ll enjoy going into battle with Napoleon: Total...

The Total War series has always been one of my favorites, starting with Rome: Total War way back in 2004 (where have the past 12 years gone??). Like many Apple loyalists, my patience deserted me and I played the series first through Boot Camp, and then Parallels. 

There always seemed to be something hindering the gameplay, however -- either through lagging gameplay, poor graphics or any number of other issues inherent with going through one operating system to get to another. I was excited when Feral Interactive brought Rome: Total War to the Mac, and even more so with Napoleon.

The game takes place (as you might have guessed) during the Napoleonic era. This covered the years 1799-1815, ending with Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo. If there was a better period for the Total War series to cover, I can’t think of one. It was a time of massive armies mixed with technological changes in the way wars were fought. While I was afraid that Napoleon: Total War might not be able...

All Work and No Headphone Jack Makes Nilay a Dull Boy

A (partial!) selection of sentences containing the word “headphone” from Nilay Patel’s review of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus for The Verge:

  • Removing the headphone jack is an act of pure confidence from
    Apple, which is the only company in tech that can set off a sea
    changes in the industry by aggressively dropping various
    technologies from its products.

  • And now it’s decided that — yikes — the headphone jack
    is over.

  • And third — here it is again — there’s no headphone jack.

  • Apart from the revised camera, the new home button, the screen,
    and — heyo! — the headphone jack, the other notable external
    hardware change to the iPhone 7 is the addition of stereo
    speakers.

The world's biggest watch maker says the moniker — which is was once rumored to be the name of Apple's rumored smart watch — is too darn close to its own iSwatch product. Of course, Apple’s smartwatch turned out to be dubbed the “Apple Watch” instead of the “iWatch.”

Now, however, if Apple wants to use the name "iWatch" in the UK at some point in future, it can now do so only with certain products. According to the BBC News, these include computer software and computer accessories - but not computer hardware, monitors, audio and video devices or cameras.

Mixpanel: iOS 10 showing high adoption rate

As of 2 PM PT today -- slightly over one day after iOS 10 first became available -- iOS 10 is showing a 16.17% adoption rate. That means that of all iOS devices on the planet, over 16% have already been updated to the latest version of iOS. The numbers are generated by Mixpanel, which uses anonymized customer data to track actions across web and mobile. 

Mixpanel's VP of Engineering Joe Xavier predicts that iOS 10 will reach 50% adoption in less than 11 days, most likely on Sunday, September 25. By comparison, iOS 9 took 12 days to reach 50% and iOS 8 31 days. 

Another fascinating comparison is when iOS 10 is pitted against the latest version of Android, version 6.0 "Marshmallow". As of today, that mobile operating system has an 18.7% adoption rate -- and Marshmallow was first widely released almost a year ago on October 5, 2015. By later today, a greater...

Self-driving Ubers are now arriving in Pittsburgh

Uber has begun offering customers the chance to ride in one of its autonomous car prototypes. The new service has launched in Pittsburgh, where Uber carries out its high-tech research, and is a sign of confidence by the company in its self-driving car technology.

The service is initially being offered to Uber’s “most loyal” customers in the city as part of the Uber X service, the company said in a blog post that was short on technical details.

The Ford Focus cars being used in the trial will have a human in the driver’s seat—someone who should be ready to take over from the computer should it encounter a situation it cannot safely deal with. That’s not only a prudent technical move but also the law. No U.S. states have legalized self-driving cars without human drivers or steering wheels.

A black gloss iPhone but no black Airpods? Why?

Hajek screams in his piece, “SO WHY DID THIS NOT HAPPEN?” There are any number of reasons, most likely for simplicity’s sake in their first iteration. If they prove to be popular (and, even though I won’t be buying them, I think they will be), we’ll see colour matched AirPods in their next version. But, then again, there are no black EarPods so maybe we’ll never see them.

Pad & Quill Small Briefcase. Image ©2016, Steven Sande

When you get really compact computing devices like the 12-inch MacBook or iPad Pros, most laptop bags are way too big. It's like using a moving van to transport a pea! Well, fortunately Pad & Quill saw the trend towards more svelte computers and tablets and developed the new Small Briefcase (US$219.00). Today we'll take a look at this compact and rugged laptop case.

Design

For looks and durability, the Small Briefcase is handmade from leather and waxed canvas. It comes in four different finishes: charcoal gray canvas with whiskey leather, olive green canvas with galloper black leather, charcoal gray canvas with chocolate leather and charcoal gray canvas with galloper black leather. All four look outstanding -- we received a gray/black Small Briefcase and it's gorgeous.

While the company's Irish tax complications took focus at the end of August, favorable iPhone 7 demand along with the release of Apple Watch Series 2 and other developments disclosed at the company's event last week have left the matter sidelined as investors look toward the future.

Further tailwinds from Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 misfortune have also marked a favorably timed gift, as noted by Seeking Alpha. With the recent share move, Apple is now off around 3.5% on the year and up around 14% over the last...

Apple CEO Tim Cook discusses AR/VR on ‘ABC News’

Apple CEO Tim Cook discussed augmented reality/virtual reality technologies this morning during an ABC News interview. He said that, in his opinion, augmented reality (AR) is the larger of the two, “probably by far, because this gives the capability for both of us to sit and be very present talking to each other, but also have other things visually for both of us to see.”

"Virtual reality (VR) sort of encloses and immerses the person into an experience that can be really cool, but probably has a lower commercial interest over time, or less people would be interested in that,” Cook said. He added that Apple has a lot of consideration for virtual reality as it relates to gaming and education.

Apple has filed for several patents involving VR and AR. One patent involves augmented reality (AR) apps for iOS devices such...

Logitech K780 Multi Device Bluetooth Keyboard...

I’ve been using Apple’s extended wired keyboard for something like a decade – since it came out in 2007 – mostly because it feels the same as my MacBook Pro’s keys and it’s more reliable than Bluetooth – it just works for me.

Logitech makes some pretty good keyboards in their own right. I love their solar offerings for instance. But because the ol’ Apple extended is there and it feels like my MacBook’s keyboard, I usually end up going back to what I’m used to after trialling other keyboards.

That might not happen this time around. I’ve been playing with Logitech’s new K780 Multi Device Bluetooth Keyboard which retails for $80 at Logitech and soon at Best Buy, Amazon and other fine retailers…...

Twitter's new Apple TV, Fire TV, and Xbox One...

Most people may associate Twitter with mobile phones, but today it’s coming to your TV with the release of new video-centric apps for the Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Xbox One.

On the surface, the idea seems pretty stupid. Some smart TVs have integrated Twitter apps in the past and nobody used them, because using Twitter on your TV sucks. But this time it makes more sense, because Twitter’s doubling down on video and live events. On Thursday the social network will livestream its first NFL Thursday Night Football game, with nine more NFL livestreams scheduled throughout the season. And the only thing worse than surfing Twitter timelines on your TV is watching football on your phone.

iOS 10 includes a lot of new stuff, from a revamped Messages app to a redesigned Apple Music experience. While most of it is superior to iOS 9, there are some choices that are more questionable. iOS 10 updates the lock screen with a new widgets view, but it also removes the iconic Slide to Unlock feature.

Unlocking an iPhone now requires a physical press on the Home Button by default. However, there is a nifty setting to make the iPhone act more like iOS 9 if you have Touch ID, called “Rest Finger to Open”. This trick works with any iPhone or iPad that has a Touch ID Home button …

This means that online shoppers with iPhones, iPads and Macs updated with the latest operating systems (iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, due Monday) can save time when finishing an online purchase through the Apple's Safari browser. Retailers that have signed up for the service are expected to see an uptick in the number of customers that finish a web purchase, instead of giving up because typing in credit information was considered too complicated, awkward or time-consuming, according to Computerworld.

Amazon is making it easier to outfit your entire home with Alexa-enabled devices. The company announced a second-generation Echo Dot on Wednesday that costs just $50.

The new Dot can be pre-ordered now—and by anyone, not just Prime members who already own the Fire TV or original Echo—but will not start shipping in the U.S. until October 20.

Amazon says the new Dot, which essentially brings the Amazon Echo's voice controls to existing speakers and sound systems though it features a small speaker of its own, has a new “sleek and compact design.” The puck-shaped device was already pretty diminutive. The new Dot also comes in a new white option if black doesn’t work in your home.

The iPhone 7 and cellular speeds

Yesterday, I posted an article about the cellular radios inside the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and the fact that there are two distinct models (Intel and Qualcomm) with two different sets of capabilities.

This article from iMore digs into this from a slightly different angle:

The iPhone 7 now supports maximum speeds of up to 450Mbps, which is a 50% jump over the iPhone 6s. Specifically, the new iPhone is a Category 10 device, which means that in addition to being able to reach those astronomical speeds of 450Mbps in the downlink (downloading data from the internet), it is able to reach speeds of 100Mbps in the uplink.

To reach these speeds, the iPhone uses a technology under the LTE standard called carrier...

Twitter has launched a new, free Twitter app that will allow owners of an Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV or Xbox One to “consume the best of Twitter.” 

The free apps will feature all live streaming video available on Twitter (including live streams of 10 NFL Thursday Night Football games, as well as content from MLB Advanced Media, NBA, Pac 12 Networks, Campus Insiders, Cheddar and Bloomberg News), and other Twitter content such as top Tweets and top global Vines and Periscopes. 

Anyone with these devices, regardless of whether they have a Twitter account or a pay TV subscription, can enjoy this experience, according to Anthony Noto, chief financial officer at Twitter. What’s more, exclusively on Apple TV, viewers can enjoy live premium video and check out Tweeted video clips through a seamless side-by-side video experience.

iOS 10: How to use stickers, iMessages apps, Digital...

The Messages app is the most frequently used app on iOS, so it makes sense that Apple would lend it plenty of attention in iOS 10. It’s safe to say that the stock Messages app received, by far, the most significant overhaul of all default apps in iOS 10, as it is now a feature-laden package that leverages photos, videos, and Snapchat-inspired markup elements.

Messages in iOS 10 even brings about a dedicated iMessage App Store for adding additional functionality such as stickers, animated GIFs and third-party app extensions that run right within the Messages app interface. Updated emoji features, inline music and video playback, and brand new effects add a new dimension to Apple’s most popular iOS app.

CNN Money:

“If a customer is going out to buy a phone, they’re going to buy an iPhone 7, not a Note 7,” said Mark Newman, a Bernstein analyst who covers Samsung. He pointed out that the Note 7 was launched before the iPhone 7 and received better reviews.

Not sure I agree on the better reviews things, but keep reading:

Samsung’s Note 7 storm will “most likely blow over in a couple of months,” he said. “Longer term, Samsung is a strong brand with great products. Most of them don’t explode.”

And there it is. The Galaxy Note 7 killer feature. Not newsworthy, I know, but I just loved the quote.
