Rumor: Apple looking to overhaul Apple Music user...

It may be only a year old, but it looks like Apple is planning a fairly major overhaul of Apple Music’s user interface.

The company is set to redesign the user interface to make it more intuitive, according to sources, who asked to remain anonymous because the plans are yet to be made public. Apple also means to significantly enhance the integration of its streaming and download businesses and expand its online radio service.

Apple is said to be performing a full reboot of the Apple Music service. The changes will be unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June and arrive alongside a marketing campaign to attract users to the subscription-based service.

The new version of Apple Music will ditch the current colorful and...

Moog Music has been known for producing some of the most popular synthesizers since the 70s— we reviewed a couple of the newer models in our Logic Pros series and noted that iPad/Mac synths still can’t quite capture the experience of even a $1,000 Moog. But today Moog is releasing its own iPad and iPhone version of its popular $10,000 Model 15, aiming to offer a similar experience in a $30 mobile app. 

Moog’s own techs helped program the app at the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC, according to the company, with the app both resembling the look and sound of the original 1970’s Model 15 hardware:

(credit: Apple)

Nearly a year after being introduced, Apple Music might be getting a much-needed revamp. A Bloomberg report suggests that Apple plans to redesign the music streaming service with a more "intuitive" interface and better integration with its other music offerings.

According to "people familiar with the product," Apple's goal is to make Apple Music more user-friendly. It also plans to marry its music download and streaming options better in iTunes while also expanding its radio service. According to the report, content head Robert Kondrk and Trent Reznor of the band Nine Inch Nails are overseeing the redesign, which should debut at Apple's annual Worldwide...

Life's Too Short For Slow Computers

Nilay Patel, the Editor-in-Chief of The Verge looks back the Apple Watch, the company's first wearable device which went on sale roughly a year ago. In the article, Patel notes that Apple Watch, a computing product, is just too slow at doing some of the most basic things such as running apps. He writes: Here's the problem with the Apple Watch: it's slow. It was slow when it was first announced, it was slow when it came out, and it stayed slow when Watch OS 2.0 arrived. When I reviewed it last year, the slowness was so immediately annoying that I got on the phone with Apple to double check their performance expectations before making "it's kind of slow" the opening of the review. [...] The grand ambition of the Apple Watch is to be a full-fledged computer on your wrist, and right now it's a very slow computer. If Apple believes the watch is indeed destined to become that computer, it needs to radically increase the raw power of the Watch's processor, while maintaining its just-...

In a TV interview with CNBC’s Jim Cramer this week, Cook said the iPhone 7 will have a killer feature that would prove to be an upgrade customers won’t be able to resist. “We are going to give you things that you can’t live without that you just don’t know you need today,” Cook teased.

Could it really be something we already know about? Could any of the rumored features for the device possibly fall under the groundbreaking or irresistible category of features Cook hinted at? Could the new rumoured dual-camera system be enough to account for Cook’s comment, perhaps? Of course, it’s also possible it’s all just post-Q2 PR hype after a quarter of declines. Will Apple have something new and exciting that we don’t yet know about for the iPhone 7?

Rumor: Apple Music revamp to be announced at WWDC

Apple will announce “sweeping” changes to its Apple Music at its Worldwide Developer Conference next month, according to Bloomberg

Plans include revamping the user interface of the streaming service to make it more intuitive to use, the article adds, quoting unnamed (as always) “people familiar with the product who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public.” Apple also plans to better integrate its streaming and download businesses and expand its online radio service and launch a marketing blitz to lure more customers to the $10-per-month streaming service, Bloomberg reports. Apple Music is just about a year old, but already has 13 million subscribers.

Chances that this will happen (IMHO): 90%. Why not? The big question is: when will iTunes for the Mac get a major revamp?

Desktop/tablet combos may be the future of computing

In the long-ago days of 2013, Ben Bajarin, writing for Techpinions, predicted that desktops are going to make a comeback and that it's notebooks that are "the past" as tablets such as the iPad continue to grow in popularity. I think he was onto something, despite a more-common line of thinking that the desktop is the past of personal computing as ever more folks move to laptops.

"I see desktops making a comeback due to a role change," Bajarin said. "There is an interesting trend emerging around desktops. Consumer all-in-one desktops (like the iMac) are being designed to be showcased prominently in the house rather than stuck in the den or office. These computers will be very elegant, very powerful, and very affordable. So rather than try to converge a notebook and a tablet, I think a better create a solution is to pair a desktop all-in-one with a tablet."

Under this scenario, when you want a big screen, keyboard,...

The ruling was reported by Legal Daily, which the BBC says ‘is widely recognised as the official mouthpiece for the country’s Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission.’

Apple Loses Exclusive Rights To 'iPhone'...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from AppleInsider: Adding to the company's problems in the region, Apple has lost exclusivity on the use of the "iPhone" trademark in China, and must now share it with Beijing-based leather products maker Xintong Tiandi Technology, reports said on Tuesday. On March 31, the Beijing Municipal High People's Court rejected an Apple appeal of an earlier ruling, according to Quartz. Xintong Tiandi is already selling a number of "IPHONE" products, including purses, passport cases, and most notably phone cases. The company registered its trademark in China in 2007, the same year as the Apple iPhone launched in the United States. That was, however, still five years after Apple registered the iPhone name in China for computer products, something which formed the basis of a 2012 complaint to the country's trademark authorities. In 2013 the government ruled that because Apple couldn't prove the name "IPHONE" was well-known prior to Xintong Tiandi's...

I have never been so excited to try out a plug-in. It took Universal Audio two years to complete this single plug-in.

Apple has lost exclusive ownership of the “iPhone” name in China. The company has lost a trademark suit against a Chinese company, which now holds the right to make and sell handbags and other leather products branded “IPHONE,” reports Quartz.

The Beijing Municipal High People’s Court rejected Apple’s appeal of the trademark dispute against Xintong Tiandi Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd. on Mar. 31, the article adds. The final judgement allows the Beijing company to brand leather products including handbags, purses, and cellphone and passport cases with the name “IPHONE.”

Xintong Tiandi Technology,applied to register its trademark on the name -- in the category of leather goods -- in 2007. While Apple filed its own "iPhone" trademark in 2002, that application wasn't approved until 2013.

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

iOS Apps/Updates for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Tasa Graphic Arts has introduced Plate Tectonics Visual Glossary and Atlas 1.0. It’s a $1.99 comprehensive glossary of terms and definitions related to plate tectonics with visuals that include illustrations, animations, photos, and videos. The app provides a visual experience that encourages discovery by exploration of Earth's surface. Using a 3D globe with surface maps that show Earth's geologic features, terms are related to the features that are a direct result of the motion of tectonic plates.

The Week in iOS Accessories: The everywhere doorbell

C'mon, ring that bell!

The latest roundup includes a new home doorbell that you can answer from your iPhone. Read on!

August

The $199 August Doorbell Cam (also available on Amazon) lets you see who is on your front porch—whether you’re at home, or away—on your iPhone. It’s motion triggered, and records the people who approach, so you can have a record of visitors. And it makes a handy intercom: Let people in remotely to drop off a package, then ensure the door is locked again once they leave.

India has shot down Apple's plan to sell...

India reportedly has rejected Apple’s plan to sell refurbished iPhones in the country, a blow to the company’s hopes for growth there.

The government turned down Apple’s application to import and sell the older, refreshed phones, Bloomberg reported, citing an unnamed official. Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Apple looked to refurbished handsets as a way to attract more buyers in India. An earlier application was rejected last year by India’s Ministry of Environment.

The company’s phone sales growth has been slowing in China, so it has been looking to India as its next big growth market. Apple had only three percent market share in India in the fourth quarter of...

Apple loses exclusive rights to “iPhone” trademark...

Well, this is a bit awkward.

In a strange turn of events, Apple has lost exclusive rights to the “iPhone” name in China thanks to losing a trademark suit against a Chinese company which now holds the right to make and sell handbags and other leather products branded “IPHONE.”

The Beijing Municipal High People’s Court rejected Apple’s appeal of the trademark dispute against Xintong Tiandi Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd. on Mar. 31, state media Legal Daily reported. The final judgement allows the Beijing company to brand leather products including handbags, purses, and cellphone and passport cases with the name “IPHONE.”

Xintong Tiandi registered the “IPHONE” trademark to make leather products back in 2007, about five years after Apple registered the same name in...

External Link: Dish Now Offering iPhone House Calls

Satellite provider Dish has an intriguing new service: on-site iPhone screen and battery repair. You’ll pay a premium for its services, which range from $74.99 to $184.99, which is more than even Apple typically charges, but it might be worthwhile if you don’t have an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider nearby. $35 of the fee is a “Drive to Me” fee, which is waived for additional devices repaired in a single visit. While devices fixed by Dish won’t be covered by their original warranties, Dish warranties its work for 60 days.

Law Affords More Protection to PINs Than Prints


A federal magistrate in Los Angeles ordered the girlfriend of an alleged gang member to open her phone using her fingerprint so prosecutors could look at the data on it for a case they were working on, according to a news report published last week. Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan, 29, of Los Angeles pleaded no contest to identity theft earlier this year. Within 45 minutes after she was taken into custody, U.S. Magistrate Judge Alicia Rosenberg issued a warrant to force Bkhchadzhyan to press her finger to her iPhone to open it.

iPhone warning signs

There is a lot of justifiable doom and gloom surrounding Apple in general and the iPhone in particular so far this year. A lot of it is incomprehensible to those of us who use and enjoy the products the company makes. Personally, I don’t think there’s any need to push a panic button but the company does have some serious challenges ahead for the rest of the year and into 2017.

Exclusive: Redesigned Aspen Grove Apple Store...

The eponymous aspen trees at the Aspen Grove shopping mall in Littleton, Colorado are barely budding out, but there is something new that's sprouted up at the location: A freshly–updated Apple Store.

The Aspen Grove Apple Store has been open for quite a few years (it opened on November 10, 2001 and was the 16th Apple Store overall), and to be honest with you it was definitely in need of a renovation. It's my local Apple Store, and the location where I picked up my first iPhone in 2007. The store is rather small (6,281 square feet), and unlike some recently-refurbished Apple Stores, the new store doesn't feature a mammoth video screen in the back.

Twitter’s Connect tab takes another shot at the...

Twitter is trying to get better at recommending people to follow with a new Connect tab for iOS and Android.

The Connect tab replaces a previous Find People section, and does more to explain why it is recommending particular people and accounts.

Trending accounts no longer have their own section, but are instead featured in a carousel at the top of the screen. Below that, there’s an option to connect your address book for finding people you know in the real world.

The meat of the new Connect tab, however, lies below these two sections. Here, you can scroll through a series of recommendation cards, each based on a group of people you’re following already and on your recent activity. Additional cards are interspersed for popular accounts nearby and people you might know through your Twitter contacts. Twitter says it will continue to refine these recommendations over time.

Apple has released the fourth beta of its iOS 9.3.2 update to both developers and public beta testers today. OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 and tvOS 9.2.1 also saw a fourth beta release for developers today. The latest developer and public betas haven’t seen any major changes as it appears they are turning out to be more bug fix releases than anything. Simultaneous use of Low Power Mode and Night Shift had been reactivated as of iOS 9.3.2 beta 2.

Ever heard of Eva Automation? Me neither. Until I got a press release from Bowers & Wilkins this morning reporting that the little-known Silicon Valley startup had acquired the renowned British manufacturer of high-end audio equipment.

Eva’s management team, on the other hand, is well known in the upper echelons of the tech industry. CEO Gideon Yu’s resume includes a partnership at the venture-capital firm Khosla Ventures, Senior VP of Finance at Yahoo, CFO at YouTube, and then the same position at Facebook. More recently, he became a co-owner of the San Francisco 49ers football team and led the team’s efforts in financing the construction of Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif, which hosted Super Bowl 50 in January.

Dish Network is finding a new purpose for its technicians in the age of streaming video.

With its new Smart Phone Repair program, Dish will send someone to your house or work to replace a broken iPhone screen or worn-out battery on site. The service is available seven days a week to anyone across the United States—whether they’re Dish TV subscribers or not—with same-day and next-day appointments. Repairs take 30 to 45 minutes.

Each iPhone battery replacement costs $40, and screen repairs range from $130 to $150, depending on the model of iPhone. Dish also charges $35 for the service call itself, which can cover the repair of multiple phones. Dish says it’s open to corporate events as well, in case companies want to repair company iPhones on a large scale.

Original iPhone. Image via WIRED.

Those of us who have watched the changes in the world since the introduction of the iPhone in 2007 know just how influential that device has been. Whether it is the dominance of smartphones these days, the fact that most other manufacturers have copied the design of the iPhone, or the rise of the App Store economy, there's no denying that the iPhone started something big. TIME today published a list of the "50 Most Influential Gadgets of All Time", and the iPhone is at the top of the list.

The Mac made the number 3 spot on the list for how it "forever set the standard for the way human beings interact with computers," and the iPod (below) was at the number 9 spot as "...an entire generation's introduction to Apple's easy-to-use products and slick marketing."

Rumor: Apple ups iPhone SE component orders to meet...

Even with declining iPhone sales, the iPhone SE might just prove to be a hit.

A new supply chain rumor has indicated that Apple has increased orders for its new low-end iPhone SE, and plans to build more than 5 million units this quarter alone, as the company continues to struggle to keep up with demand for the 4-inch handset.

The supplies have been constrained since launch and as of Tuesday, predicted shipping times run from two to three weeks on Apple’s web site.

As a result, Apple may be upping production and it was reported that chipmakers have increased component orders for the iPhone SE.

While Apple was apparently previously planning to build between 3.5 million and 4 million iPhone SE units in the current quarter, Tuesday’s report suggests that Apple has...

Now for some good news: the Indian government may have denied Apple’s request to sell used smartphones in the country, but the company and Lenovo are the fastest growing among India’s top 109 smart phone vendors, according to a new report from Canalys.

India’s smart phone market grew by 12% year-on-year, with 24.4 million units shipping in first quarter (Q1) of 2016, notes the research group. The top five vendors stayed the same, with Samsung in the lead, followed by Micromax, Intex, Lenovo and Lava. Lenovo grew the most; its shipments were up 63% on Q1 2015. 

Established international brands Microsoft, BlackBerry, Sony and LG were the biggest losers as the market shifted toward low-cost and value-for-money handsets. Though in eighth place, Apple continued to climb in India, increasing shipments...

There's something about the juxtaposition of Apple's glass and aluminum works of art with the natural materials of wood and leather that makes the rare handmade cases that use the nature as a source of inspiration all that much more attractive. That's the situation with Grovemade's Walnut & Leather Case ($99 for iPhone SE, $109 for iPhone 6/6s, $119 for iPhone 6/6s Plus).

The Walnut & Leather Case (also available in Maple & Leather) uses a carefully-crafted wood bumper around the sides of the iPhone with a stick-on leather back.

The Indian government has nixed Apple's application to import and sell refurbished iPhones, according to Bloomberg, quoting an unnamed telecommunications ministry official.

Apple wanted permission to import and sell used phones in an effort to appeal to price-conscious consumers. A similar proposal was rejected by the Indian government last year.Apple’s rivals have mounted a public campaign against the effort, arguing that such a move would trigger a flood of used electronics while defeating the government’s Make-in-India program to encourage local manufacturing, notes Bloomberg.

What’s more, within two years, all phones — including iPhones — sold in India must have a “panic button” and built-in GPS, according to a new ruling by Minister of Communications and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Tim Cook Defends Apple, Teases Exciting New Products...

anderzole quotes a report from BGR: Apple's earnings report last week saw the company report a year over year decline in profits for the first time since 2003. The biggest contributing factor to the decline, not surprisingly, is that year over year iPhone sales dropped by 16%. Notably, Apple's most recent quarter represents the company's first iPhone sales decline in history. Consequently, the usual contingent of pundits and analysts have come out of the woodwork, all exclaiming that we've reached 'peak iPhone' and that Apple at this point has nowhere to go but down. In an effort to inject a bit of good news and all-around optimism to a particularly negative Apple news cycle, Tim Cook earlier today appeared on CNBC with Jim Cramer where the Apple CEO teased that Apple's still has a lot of innovation left to do and some interesting items in the product pipeline. "We've got great innovation in the pipeline," Cook said to Cramer. "New iPhones that will incentivize you and other people...
