Apple 2017 year in review: iPhone X with Face ID...




To mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Apple released the iPhone X -- that's pronounced "ten," as the company is eager to point out. While it may not be an earth-shaking revelation, it's an important signpost for where Apple plans to be 10 years from now -- assuming we're even still using smartphones in 2027.

Best Amazon Digital Day deals

Just when you thought the big sales days were over for 2017, Amazon pops up with another one. Today, Friday, December 29 is Amazon's Digital Day: A time for you to find great deals on apps, movies, and games to fill up your devices.

That's what the marketing materials say, anyway. After looking through the Digital Day sales, all we can say is "Yeesh." Most of the "deals" we spotted are at least a week old or longer. Moreover, the PC game deals are on par with Steam's ongoing Winter Sale, and based on data from CamelCamelCamel, many deal prices are not even close to historic lows.

Italian brothers can call their clothing company ‘...

An Italian clothing company called "Steve Jobs" (no, really) has won a trademark battle against Apple and can now use the company’s name and and Apple-inspired logo on whatever they please. 

Two Italian brothers, Vincenzo and Giacomo Barbato, noticed that Jobs' name wasn't trademarked in 2012, so they decided to use the name for their company, Business Insider Italia reports Apple has fought the brothers over their logo in court for years. The logo includes a “J” that looks like an apple with a bite out of it.

Amazingly, the Barbato brothers’ use of “Steve Jobs” and a blatant version of Apple’s logo were deemed to not be a trademark breach by the EU’s Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market.

Apple challenged the company by claiming its logo infringed on its own...

Ice, ice baby: Apple’s Chicago flagship store doesn’...

Apple’s Chicago flagship store in Chicago, Apple Michigan Avenue, has been praised for its incredible design, including glass walls, steel columns, and a MacBook-shaped roof. But apparently it wasn’t designed for winter in the Windy City.

There are no gutters to catch falling snow or ice. Nor is the roof sloping, so icicles that do form aren't dangling from 20 some feet overhead.

This is Apple Michigan Avenue pictured in October. December is a different, icier picture.

According to Chicago blogger Matt Maldre – as noted by PYMNTS — the fancy building design, while seemingly in service of Apple’s new “town square” plan, seems to have forgotten what town it was actually being built for. “Maybe next time Apple will consider the...

‘Batterygate’ lawsuits against Apple coming in...

Another day, more lawsuits. Apple has published an apology letter to customers in regards to “Batterygate” for slowing down older phones to compensate for erratic battery performance but the lawsuits keep on coming, including new ones in Australia and South Korea.

According to The New Daily, iPhone owners could cash in on a portion of over $1 billion in what lawyers are touting as Australia’s largest-ever class action, after tech giant Apple admitted to slowing down some phones.

Australian compensation law firm Shine Lawyers confirmed to The New Daily on Friday that investigations have begun and it intends to file a class action against Apple in early 2018. Jan Saddler, Shine Lawyers’ class-action expert, estimated more than five million Australians...

Apple's MacBook Air-like Store Roof Wasn't...

An anonymous reader shares a report Apple opened its new flagship retail store in Chicago earlier this year to much acclaim, but as the weather turns from fall to winter, a design oversight is causing some problems. As reported by Chicago blog Spundart, Apple seemingly didn't design the MacBook Air-like roof of the store to account for snow... in Chicago. Apple's newest Chicago store garnered earlier attention for its roof design that mimics a MacBook Air, but one clear oversight is that there are no gutters to catch snow or ice. Furthermore, as the multi-level store sits along the Chicago River, the roof is sloped downward, meaning that anyone standing on the walkway along the river gets hit with falling snow and ice. Further reading: Apple is really bad at design.

Apple keeps losing legal battles to an Italian...

Gizmodo:

When two brothers from Naples decided to stop doing fashion design for other companies and start a brand of their own, they went hunting for an attention-grabbing name. They discovered that “Steve Jobs” wasn’t trademarked and decided on that. Now, a protracted legal battle has come to an end, and they have big plans for using the Apple founder’s name on pretty much anything.

And:

As expected, Apple’s legal department soon sent the brothers four large folders of legal documents and went to war. But the brothers won the case.

It’d be one thing if the founder was named Steve Jobs. But this is straight-forward riding on someone else’s coattails.

That said, there are plenty of precedents. Here’s one that springs to mind.

A message to our customers about iPhone batteries...

From Apple’s public statement on the iPhone battery throttling issue:

We’ve been hearing feedback from our customers about the way we handle performance for iPhones with older batteries and how we have communicated that process. We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. We apologize. There’s been a lot of misunderstanding about this issue, so we would like to clarify and let you know about some changes we’re making.

First and foremost, we have never — and would never — do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product, or degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades. Our goal has always been to create products that our customers love, and making iPhones last as long as possible is an important part of that.

Apple then goes into detail on battery aging and some battery shutdown history, all pretty readable. But at the very bottom is this:

Tim Cook: Salary details, and forced by new Apple...

Two nuggets from this Bloomberg article:

Cook’s incentive pay totaled $9.33 million for the year ended Sept. 30, the Cupertino, California-based company said Wednesday in a regulatory filing. He also took home $3.06 million in salary and a previously disclosed equity award of $89.2 million, bringing his total payout for the year to about $102 million.

His top five lieutenants each got bonuses of $3.11 million, bringing their total compensation to about $24.2 million each, including salaries and stock awards.

And:

The Apple board stipulated this year that for security reasons the CEO should use private planes for business and personal travel, citing the risk given his high profile. Personal security costs were calculated at $224,216.

My two cents: Tim Cook is a bargain. Apple is an aircraft...

The AWT’s staff favorite products of 2017

The Apple World Today staff has compiled their list of their favorite hardware and software products of 2017.

Dennis Sellers’ list

I thought I could replace my iMac with a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and 27-inch LG Ultrafine display. Actually, I did for seven months, but the entire experience just wasn’t as smooth. Plus, the Apple all-in-one’s display is so much more elegant than LG’s monitor. The mid-2017 rev of the iMac with 5K Retina display is the company’s finest Mac ever (well, at least for those who can't afford an iMac Pro). See my review here.

Ten things I want to see from Apple in 2018

Overall, 2017 has been a great year for Apple. But here’s some things I’d love to see in 2018:

  • I like the News and Clips apps on iOS devices, but I also want them on my Mac. The latter app could replace PhotoBooth
  • The option of equipping Mac laptops with LTE, as you can do with the iPad. In 2008, Apple CEO Steve Jobs rejected the idea of LTE-equipped laptops because it would add complexity to the device and lock customers in to a particular carrier. Neither argument applies today since, for example, antennas have grown ever smaller.
  • The ability to hook up an iPad Pro up to a Mac to use it as a Cintiq-like device.
  • A MacBook Pro with the option of 32GB of RAM (the limit now is 16GB).
  • A “non-Pro” iMac available in space grey and with the T2 chip.
  • A Magic Keyboard with backlighting and a built-...

The company has also stated that it will issue a software update in early 2018 to let users find out more information about the health of their device’s battery.

The new battery replacement is marked down from $79 and will be available for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery needs to be replaced, starting in late January and available worldwide through December 2018.

Apple offered the following letter of apology regarding the issue and following controversy:

Face ID unable to approve family purchases, reasons...

This is a bit strange.

A number of iPhone X owners have discovered that Face ID isn’t available as an authentication method for the “Ask to Buy” feature, which allows parents to approve their kids’ iOS purchases and downloads. At present, the parent, or controlling Apple ID account holder, must enter their entire Apple account password to approve each individual purchase attempt.

As a result, users are frustrated given that this equivalent functionality was available on Touch ID devices and seems to have been lost in the transition to the iPhone X. Face ID can be used as an authentication method for other purchases, just like Touch ID before it—but Touch ID also worked for “Ask to Buy,” and Face ID doesn’t.

This change also comes at a time when Apple has touted Face ID as Touch ID’s eventual replacement. The Face ID authentication feature has been applied to a number of third-party apps, which transitioned flawlessly to Face ID as a login protocol.

An Italian clothing company that uses the name "Steve Jobs" as its brand will be able to continue using the moniker after winning a multi-year legal battle, reports Italian site la Repubblica Napoli. Mac Rumors reports: Brothers Vincenzo and Giacomo Barbato named their clothing brand "Steve Jobs" in 2012 after learning that Apple had not trademarked his name. "We did our market research and we noticed that Apple, one of the best known companies in the world, never thought about registering its founder's brand, so we decided to do it," the two told la Repubblica Napoli. The Barbatos designed a logo that resembles Apple's own, choosing the letter "J" with a bite taken out of the side. Apple, of course, sued the two brothers for using Jobs' name and a logo that mimics the Apple logo. In 2014, the European Union's Intellectual Property Office ruled in favor of the Barbatos and rejected Apple's trademark opposition. While the outcome of the legal battle was decided in 2014, Vincenzo and...

"We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down," says the company. "We apologize." Apple says in its letter that batteries are "consumable components," and is offering anyone with an iPhone 6 or later a battery replacement for $29 starting in late January through December 2018 -- a discount of $50 from the usual replacement cost. Apple's also promising to add features to iOS that provide more information about the battery health in early 2018, so that users are aware of when their batteries are no longer capable of supporting maximum phone performance.

HTC, Motorola Say They Don't Slow Old Phones...

After Apple confirmed last week that it reduces the performance of older iPhones to improve battery life, it has left many wondering whether or not other smartphone manufacturers do the same. HTC and Motorola are the two most recent OEMs to say they don't throttle their phones' processor speeds as their batteries age. The Verge reports: In emails to The Verge, both companies said they do not employ similar practices with their smartphones. An HTC spokesperson said that designing phones to slow down their processor as their battery ages "is not something we do." A Motorola spokesperson said, "We do not throttle CPU performance based on older batteries." The Verge also reached out to Google, Samsung, LG, and Sony for comment on whether their phone processors are throttled in response to aging batteries. A Sony spokesperson said a response would be delayed by the holidays, and a Samsung spokesperson said the company was looking into it. The responses begin to clarify whether or not...

Today, I'll write about a bug in Mail on the Mac that is new this year in Mac OS 10.13 (High Sierra).

This time last year, I gave my end-of-year report card for Apple’s 2016 performance – and it’s time now for the 2017 version.

Last year, there were some controversial decisions, with two key products getting more attention for what they omitted rather than what they offered: the loss of the headphone socket in the iPhone 7, and most ports in the MacBook Pro. Both now feel like very old news. As I wrote at the time, while there may be much discussion at the time, people do quickly get used to changing standards.

Al Kossow, a software curator for the Computer History Museum, announced that the source code for Apple's first operating system with a graphical user interface has been recovered and is currently with Apple for review. After the tech giant reviews it, the Computer History Museum will make the source code available to all sometime in 2018.

The original Lisa computer, named after Jobs' eldest daughter, came out in 1983 and was...

Apple patent filing hints at Amazon Prime-Like food...

Could Apple have plans for an Amazon Prime-like service? A newly filed patent (20170372388) for a “system and method for fresh online experience” hints at this.

Among other things, Amazon Prime members can browse local restaurant menus and order online or on the Amazon mobile app. Apple’s patent filing is for a system and method for visually verifying the exact item a customer will be receiving through the online grocery pick up of a retail store. 

The system allows for customers to order a fresh item, such as apples, and view images of the exact fresh item online before finalizing purchase for retail store pickup. The exact fresh item is scanned using three dimensional scanning. The customer views the images and approves or rejects the exact fresh item before finalizing purchase.

 Of course, 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...

Apple patent involves current, and future, versions...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170374465) for an “audio system with configurable zones,” which involves the upcoming HomePod, as well as possible future, bigger incarnations of the speaker system.

Apple expects to ship 4 million HomePods next year, according to a Bloomberg report. Last month Apple said the smart speaker launch will now happen in “early 2018” instead of in December, as expected.

Announced in June, the $349 system is just under seven inches tall and looks like a piece of furniture. It will be available in both space gray and white. The HomePod also acts as a hub for HomeKit devices to provide remote access to home automation. It will use Siri to browse and select music from Apple Music, control the home through HomeKit, and answer questions.

Apple’s patent includes one or more speaker...

Apple is being slandered for what chemistry cannot...

Robert Kientz, Seeking Alpha (free reg-wall):

Li-ION is the most advanced, commonly available batteries that are used in portable electronics like laptops and phones. That is because unlike Nickel Cadmium [NiCad], they do not develop ‘charge memories’. And they are better for small electronics than Nickel Metal Hydride [NiMH] because of shorter charge time and higher energy density, both critical for the uses of portable phones.

And:

Li-ION batteries typically fail faster than NiCad because they wear out in less charge cycles, which mean consumers get fewer charges before their batteries will need replacement.

And:

Apple has not designed flaws into its iPhone product with regard to battery management.

What Apple has done is provide software that allows its iPhone users who want to keep their phones to manage their batteries by slowing down the processor during times of lower power and to keep the phones from turning off spontaneously....

Several lawsuits — filed in, among other places, California, New York and Illinois — seek class-action to represent iPhone owners nationwide and demand unspecified damages along with, in some cases, reimbursement from Apple. Last week the tech giant released a statement admitting iOS updates would slow down phones, but only to prevent devices with old batteries “from unexpectedly shutting down.”

Apple CEO Tim Cook gets a pay hike

A year after delivering an unusual pay cut, Apple gave CEO Tim Cook a major boost in compensation for fiscal-year 2017 as the company exceeded annual sales and profit goals, reports The Wall Street Journal.

His pay jumped 47% to $12.8 million, up from $8.7 million in 2016. Cook’s pay increase was driven by a cash bonus, which was dependent on the company’s yearly performance (which was great).

Also, Apple's Board of Directors has also implemented a policy requiring Cook to "use private aircraft for all business and personal travel.” The CEO doesn’t make a lot of high-profile appearances, but his job does require him to travel to places like Scotland, China, and India, and Apple's stores and data centers across the U.S.

Rumor: Apple to set up a direct presence in Saudi...

With Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman looking to give the kingdom a high-tech makeover, Apple and Amazon are in licensing discussions with Riyadh on investing in Saudi Arabia, reports Reuters.

Both tech companies already sell products in the kingdom — which has been easing regulatory impediments for the last two years — via third parties, but they have yet to establish a direct presence there. That seems to be changing. 

Quoting unnamed sources, Reuters says licensing agreement for Apple stores with SAGIA — Saudi Arabia’s foreign investment authority — is expected by February, with an initial retail store targeted for 2019. Apple already holds second place in the Saudi mobile phone market behind Samsung, according to market researcher...

How’s Apple doing in India?

If you are interested in Apple and India, don’t miss the crowdsourced revenue/net income chart in the middle of the post. It estimates Apple’s 2017 India revenue at about 11,618 crore. A crore is 10M rupee, about $156,000.

Doing the math (pulls out Pcalc), 11,618 crore is about $1.8 billion. Not too shabby.
