According to Variety, Apple has given a straight-to-series order for a psychological thriller written by Tony Basgallop, who has written for a variety of TV shows such as 24:Legacy and Hotel Babylon, and produced by M.

Wait time for replacement iPhone batteries increases

In a note to clients — as noted by 9to5Mac — Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz says the current wait times for iPhone battery availability have gone up to 3-4.5 weeks after a series of calls to Apple Stores. The longest wait of any Apple Store was found to be 9-10 weeks.

A few weeks ago the average wait time was pegged at 2-4.5 weeks, with a forecast for steady improvements. While the research group was surprised by the increased wait times, Barclays says that, overall, the customer response to the replacement program is on track with its previous estimates. In January, Moskowitz forecasted that about 50 million iPhone users would take advantage of the program out of a total 500 million eligible devices.

In December 2017 Apple published an apology letter to customers in regards to “...

Marketcircle to focus on Daylite and Billings Pro...

Alykhan Jetha (AJ), CEO of Marketcircle:

An important lesson I’ve learned as CEO of Marketcircle is that as a business, it’s critical to evolve or you get left behind. In order for us to stay competitive in our market, to continue innovating, and to provide you with excellent products and services, we have to focus on Cloud. With 87% of our revenue coming from Cloud, it doesn’t make sense to continue working on a platform that splits our resources and is decreasing in demand. If we continue to support both platforms, both will suffer.

The company announced end of life for Daylite Server and Billings Pro Server, but it is a wise decision considering where things are going, and have been going for many years. It just makes no sense to try to keep both products going.

LG's monitor features a 34-inch HD PS display with a 2560x1080 resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 5-millisecond response time. It comes loaded with Nvidia G-Sync so you can synchronize refresh rates between your monitor and a compatible GeForce graphics card.

My iPhone X lost a fight with concrete on Sunday morning when I folded up my jogging stroller and forgot the phone in its storage compartment. The smashed iPhone X is on its way to Apple’s repair facility (yes, the one that makes all those 911 calls) and I’m living on an iPhone 6 Plus for the week.

A few observations: the modern haptic engine is light years ahead of the 2014 vibration motor, cameras on newer iPhones have improved dramatically, and older iPhones feel slow in comparison with or without throttling. More on my experience with a throttled iPhone so far below.

One day we may buy AppleCare for our bodies, not...

Apple’s next big thing might not be something you can wear, drive, or even touch. It might be your body itself.

According to a report by CNBC, Apple will be launching a group of health clinics in Santa Clara County called AC Wellness. The initiative will initially be limited to employees and their families when it launches this spring.

Why this matters: Apple has becoming intimately familiar with health care ever since the launch of the Health app on iOS and the Apple Watch, so it’s not at all surprising that it’s entering the field. The question is whether Apple can disrupt health care. Apple isn’t just the most valuable company in the world, it’s also one of the most trusted. While the new clinics will likely be limited to an employee benefit for the foreseeable future, it’s not hard to imagine a world where we’re buying health care...

IDC: iPhone returns to growth in 2017

Coming off of the first year-over-year decline in iPhone shipments in 2016, Apple returned to growth in 2017 albeit only 0.2%, according to IDC. The tech giant shipped 215.8 million iPhones in 2017 with 64% of those coming from “plus-size” smartphones such as the iPhone X. 

IDC says the shift to bigger, more expensive devices has allowed Apple to continue to grow its average sales prices (ASPs) while facing the challenges of growing its shipment volumes. The research group expects iPhone shipments to grow 3.7% to 223.8 million units in 2018 and reaching 242.4 million in 2022. Overall iPhone volumes are expected to grow at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.4%. 

“Apple will continue to experience challenges breaking into some of the remaining high-growth developing markets, but there is no question they are far from being pushed out of the premium market segment,” writes IDC.”Apple continues to build out...

Christina Farr, CNBC:

Apple is launching a group of health clinics called AC Wellness for its own employees and their families this spring, according to several sources familiar with the company’s plans.

The company quietly published a website,, with more details about its initiative and a careers page listing jobs including primary care doctor, exercise coach, and care navigator, as well as a phlebotomist to administer lab tests on-site.


Sources said that it started notifying third-party vendors about the shift to its own network of health clinics this week.


Sources said the company will leverage its medical clinics as a way to test out its growing range of health services and products, which it is starting to roll out to consumers at large.

Will Apple roll out health clinics to serve consumers, rather than just employees? Not clear, but certainly seems a possibility.

The pilot program will be available in the U.S. for a limited time: March 1 to Aug. 31, 2018, subject to parts availability from Apple, according to the company's internal memo obtained by MacRumors. After the pilot ends, repairs will only be available in California and Turkey, as required by law.

Apple plans giant high-end iPhone, lower-priced model

Mark Gurman and Debby Wu, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. is preparing to release a trio of new smartphones later this year: the largest iPhone ever, an upgraded handset the same size as the current iPhone X and a less expensive model with some of the flagship phone’s key features.


With a screen close to 6.5 inches, Apple’s big new handset will be one of the largest mainstream smartphones on the market. While the body of the phone will be about the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus, the screen will be about an inch larger thanks to the edge-to-edge design used in the iPhone X. (Apple is unlikely to refer to the phone as a phablet, a term popularized by Samsung.)

I remember agonizing over the huge size of the iPhone 6 Plus, worrying about it fitting in my pockets, being too large for my hands. I switched and have never looked back. I no longer think of the Plus form factor as large. To me, it has become the new normal.

The thought of the same footprint,...

Apple patent involves a wireless charging case for...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,901,147) for a “case for a wearable electronic device.” It’s for a wireless charging case for the Apple Watch.

The case can include first and second housing members foldably coupled together by one or more hinges between an open position and a closed position. A recess formed in one of the housing members is sized and shaped to hold the one or more bands within the case with an attachment mechanism positioned within the cavity. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that smartwatches “can be part of a large ecosystem of interchangeable bands and devices such that a user may have two or more bands the user may want to use with their wearable electronic device.” And Apple would love for you to buy multiple bands for your Apple Watch.

Should such an accessory see the light of day, presumably it would offer an alternative to Apple’s upcoming...

Future Mac laptops could sport dual displays (...

Future Mac laptops could sport dual displays if a new granted Apple patent (number 9,904,502) ever comes to fruition. In one embodiment, such a device would replace the physical keyboard with a second display that could show a virtual keyboard.

The second display could also serve as a giant trackpad or a drawing pad (presumably for use with an Apple Pencil). This screen could also be home to buttons, joysticks, scrolling wheels, touch pads, key pads, keyboards, microphones, speakers, tone generators, vibrators, cameras, sensors, light-emitting diodes and other status indicators, data ports, etc

In another iteration, the hinge that holds the two displays together could be designed with magnets so that the two screens could be separated. This at least raises the possibility of the second screen to be detached and used as an iPad.

Here’s a (somewhat technical) summary of the patent: “Electronic equipment with displays may be provided. A first display may be...

Apple hasn’t shown the Mac mini love in a long time, but the tiny computer still has its fans. And those fans may find the $18.75 NewerTech HDMI Headless Video Accelerator useful.

It’s a simple adapter that plugs into the mini’s HDMI display port to make display-free “headless” Mac minis used as storage and media servers think that there’s a display attached. Because of the Mac mini’s compact size, superior storage, performance, and low cost, they’re often used as “headless” networking, storage, production studio media, and home theater servers with no need for a monitor, keyboard or mouse. 

When the Mac mini is used without a monitor, its GPU isn’t used. As a result, the interface lags, resulting in choppy screens and slow video, animation, cursor movements, menu navigation, and typing. Plugging the NewerTech HDMI Headless Video Accelerator into the HDMI port of the Mac mini solves...

Apple currently facing 60 lawsuits following iPhone...

Some things come back to haunt a company.

The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation has disclosed that it will consider consolidating dozens of iPhone performance-related complaints filed against Apple during a hearing scheduled for Thursday, March 29th, in Atlanta, Georgia.

This is a routine for similar cases filed across multiple states.

Apple currently faces no less than 59 putative class action cases across 16 district courts in the United States following the fallout of the company’s intentionally throttling the speed of certain model iPhones in circumstances where the battery might have undergone chemical aging. The throttling process was introduced as a feature in iOS 10.2.1 and removed in later versions of the operating system. This total includes no less than 30 cases before Judge Edward J. Davila in the Northern District of California, where the lawsuits will likely be centralized given their overlapping claims.

Rumor: Apple to release three Face ID-capable iPhone...

Additional rumors have surfaced as to Apple planning to release a trio of iPhone models this fall, all three incorporating Face ID authentication technology.

The report, via Bloomberg, states that Apple is looking at producing 6.5-inch screen, with a body about the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus. An edge-to-edge design in the “D33” model, such as that in the iPhone X, would allow for a large OLED screen without significantly increasing the size of the enclosure.

The largest of the rumored models is said to boast a screen resolution of 1,242 x 2,588, thereby giving it the same pixel density as that of the iPhone X.

The rumored “D32” is said to be “an update to the regular-sized iPhone X,” and a gold color is said to be under development. It has yet to be confirmed whether Apple will bring the gold-colored units to market.

Apple is also expected to introduce its “A12” processor along with iOS 12, thereby keeping in line with its previous processor and...

Apple To Suspend iTunes Store Support For '...

The original Apple TV, first introduced in 2007, will no longer be able to connect to the iTunes Store due to new security changes to be implemented by Apple. The news comes from a support document, which also mentions that PCs running Windows XP or Windows Vista will lose access to the most recent version of iTunes. Ars Technica reports: According to the document, the "obsolete" original Apple TV won't be updated in the future to support access to the iTunes Store. After May 25, users will only be able to access iTunes on second-generation Apple TVs and newer streaming devices. The same security changes affecting the first-gen Apple TV will also affect Windows XP and Vista machines. Users on such devices can still run previous versions of iTunes, so they should still be able to play their music library without problems. However, affected users won't be able to make new iTunes purchases or re-download previous purchases. Only machines running Windows 7 or later after May 25 will...

However, Apple debuted to the fourth position with a healthy 30.5% annual and 9.1 percent sequential growth in 2017.

IDC says the strong demand for the iPad and iPad Pro, coupled with attractive cash back offers, helped the brand to quickly gain a share in the market. Overall, the research group says India’s commercial tablet segment declined by 35% in quarter four of 2017. However, it saw 75% growth compared to the same quarter last year.

Lenovo continues to lead the Indian tablet market with 26.1% market share as its shipment grew 34.2% year-over-year. However, the vendor saw a decline of 31.7 percent from the previous quarter.

Rediscovering a love of music with HomePod, HomeKit...

When Apple announced HomePod during last year’s WWDC, I observed the introduction with only passing interest. Music had taken a back seat in my life. While I was fascinated by HomePod’s design, I never thought that I’d end up with one on my desk several months later.

In the U.S., day one pre-orders of Apple’s HomePod were higher than all other smart speaker first day pre-orders, except Amazon’s Echo Dot, according to NPD’s Checkout service1. With Siri, Apple Music, and HomeKit, according to a new report from the NPD Group. What’s more, if taken together, Beats and Apple were the top-selling headphone brand of 2017, accounting for 44% of all dollar sales (not just wireless), notes the research group.

“HomePod also represents Apple’s entry into the premium audio hardware market. Apple has made it a point to emphasize the audio fidelity of HomePod, in addition to its smart capabilities; and while the device will surely compete with other premium voice-activated speakers, like Sonos’ One, and Google Home Max, it will also jostle for share with audio heritage brands like Bose, Harman Kardon, and Sony,” says...

Opinion: These attempts to best the iPhone X notch...

Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is one of the biggest weeks of the year for Android manufacturers as it gives them a chance to showcase their latest and greatest smartphones.

With this year’s event taking place 4 months after the release of the iPhone X, Android manufacturers are doing everything in the books to try to steal Apple’s thunder – mainly by trying to “out do” the notch design of the iPhone X.

But in my opinion, these solutions don’t do much other than validate that Apple’s decision to take the notch approach was the correct one …

Enlarge / Apple's iCloud Drive Web interface in Safari. (credit: Samuel Axon)

Apple has updated its publicly available iOS security documentation to disclose that personal data associated with the company’s iCloud service is stored in cloud servers operated by Google—specifically, the Google Cloud service.

Apple didn’t specify exactly what iCloud data is stored on Google’s servers. But the new document does explain a little bit about how the data is encrypted. Here is the entire iCloud section entry that includes the Google Cloud reference from the document in question:

iCloud stores a user’s contacts, calendars, photos, documents, and more and keeps the information up to...

Apple Confirms It Uses Google's Cloud For...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from CNBC: A file that Apple updated on its website last month provides the first acknowledgment that it's relying on Google's public cloud for data storage for its iCloud services. The disclosure is fresh evidence that Google's cloud has been picking up usage as it looks to catch up with Amazon and Microsoft in the cloud infrastructure business. Some media outlets reported on Google's iCloud win in 2016, but Apple never provided confirmation. Apple periodically publishes new versions of a PDF called the iOS Security Guide. For years the document contained language indicating that iCloud services were relying on remote data storage systems from Amazon Web Services, as well as Microsoft's Azure. But in the latest version, the Microsoft Azure reference is gone, and in its place is Google Cloud Platform. Before the January update, Apple most recently updated the iOS Security Guide in March. The latest update doesn't indicate whether Apple is using...

Israel-Based Vendor Cellebrite Can Unlock Every...

Cellebrite, an Israel-based company, knows of ways to unlock every iPhone that's on the market, right up to the iPhone X, Forbes reported on Monday, citing sources. From the report: Cellebrite, a Petah Tikva, Israel-based vendor that's become the U.S. government's company of choice when it comes to unlocking mobile devices, is this month telling customers its engineers currently have the ability to get around the security of devices running iOS 11 . That includes the iPhone X, a model that Forbes has learned was successfully raided for data by the Department for Homeland Security back in November 2017, most likely with Cellebrite technology. The Israeli firm, a subsidiary of Japan's Sun Corporation, hasn't made any major public announcement about its new iOS capabilities. But Forbes was told by sources (who asked to remain anonymous as they weren't authorized to talk on the matter) that in the last few months the company has developed undisclosed techniques to get into iOS 11 and...

Apple will release three new iPhones this fall, according to Bloomberg, quoting unnamed sources. This report is pretty much in line with what KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted.

Bloomberg says the lineup will include the largest iPhone ever (with 6.5-inch screen), a lower cost version of the iPhone X, and a budget-friendly option that doesn’t skimp on the features. The article says:

  • The larger iPhone could have a screen resolution of 1242 x 2688 and will include an OLED panel and Face ID like the iPhone X. 
  • The super-sized smartphone and the smaller, updated iPhone X version will both have next-gen A12 processors and stainless...

Pad & Quill's new Heritage Case for iPad...

Our friends at Pad & Quill have just announced a new leather case for iPad Pro that looks amazing and gets better with age. The $119.95 Heritage Case for iPad Pro 10.5-inch uses a veg-tanned leather for the exterior of the case that darkens with use, achieving a darker and one-of-a-kind patina as you use your iPad Pro and the case.

So you can speed up the patina process, Pad & Quill includes an all-natural leather balm that you can use to speed up the process. The Heritage Case uses adhesive technology from 3M to secure an iPad Pro 10.5-inch into the case; the iPad Pro can be removed without leaving a residue on the device. It works with the iPad Pro Smart Keyboard, comes with two options for the leather spine (Chocolate or Galloper Black), and has a built-in Apple Pencil holder.

Apple to stop iTunes Store access for first-gen...

Tech companies (especially Apple) want us to use the latest products the company has to offer. They want to make money from the sales, but they also develop and implement new technology that older devices can’t support at all (or can’t support it in a way that’s acceptable to the user). Eventually, each product’s time runs out, as is now the case with the first-generation Apple TV.

Apple has released a support document that states that the first-generation Apple TV will not be able to access the iTunes Store starting on May 25. This model Apple TV (considered obsolete by Apple) will not be updated to support the new security features will be used with the iTunes Store.
