iPhone 7: Jet Black vs. Black

Apple, in a small print footnote on the iPhone 7 web page:

The high-gloss finish of the jet black iPhone 7 is achieved
through a precision nine-step anodization and polishing process.
Its surface is equally as hard as other anodized Apple products;
however, its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use. If
you are concerned about this, we suggest you use one of the many
cases available to protect your iPhone.

I just got home from San Francisco two hours ago, and took a look at my old 3G and 3GS. They were somewhat-glossy black plastic, not highly-glossy anodized aluminum, so it’s a far from a perfect comparison. But the backs of both my 3G and 3GS are scratched as hell. It didn’t bother me at the time, and they still don’t look bad per se — they just look well-used.

I didn’t notice any scratches at all on the jet black phones in the hands-on area Wednesday, but...

The iPhone 7 is here, and gone is the headphone jack. While Apple is bundling each new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with Lightning-based EarPods and a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, the company hasn’t provided a solution to one common use case: How do you listen to music with headphones and charge your phone at the same time?

Belkin’s latest adapter solves that problem—the Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar will allow you to do both simultaneously. This device plugs into your iPhone’s Lightning port, and includes two Lightning ports on the other end to plug in your EarPods and your charging cable. Belkin says that the adapter will work with all Lightning...

macOS Sierra FAQ: What you need to know about the...

This fall, Apple will release macOS Sierra, a major update to the Mac operating system. This FAQ will answer some of the general questions you may have to help you learn what it’s all about and whether you should install it on your Mac. We’ll update this FAQ with more questions, answers, and details as the release date approaches.

macOS? What happened to OS X?

Apple decide to change the name in order to fit with the names of iOS, watchOS, and tvOS. So no more Roman numerals (or that annoying person who insists on calling it “OS ex”).

Some trivia, if you’re interested: macOS isn’t entirely a new name. Before version 10, Apple used to call its Mac operating system Mac OS, with the last version being Mac OS 9. Apple change the name to OS X when version 10 was released in 2001.

The excitement is starting to brew up as we get closer and closer to iPhone 7 and 7 Plus preorders. Starting tomorrow at 12:01 AM PST, customers will be able to pre-order the iPhone, with retail availability starting on September 16th. Now is as good as time as any to get yourself ready and thinking about your configuration choices and backup plans, just in case what you want isn’t available. Coming in a new Jet Black finish (but only in the 128GB and 256GB capacities), single and dual-camera options, all running together on-top of the new A10 chip, the iPhone 7 is surely ready to give customers something to think about. Will the lack of the headphone jack steer you away from upgrading this year?

A look at changes in older iPhone pricing, UK...

With yesterday’s announcement of the iPhone 7/7Plus, there are various price changes on older models, sales in the UK, and AppleCare+ you should know about.

Apple has lowered prices on the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and SE. The iPhone 6s now comes in just two storage configurations: 3GB, and 128GB, for, respectively, $549 and $649, respectively. Before Wednesday, the 128GB model was $200 more; there was no 32GB option. 

With the iPhone 6s Plus, you an now choose from a 32GB model for $649 and a 128GB version for $749. Prior to yesterday. a 128GB model cost nearly $1,000. Also, the 64GB iPhone SE can been discounted by $50 and now costs $449.

Meanwhile, the effects of the UK’s vote to leave the EU are showing up in the price of Apple’s products. The cheapest iPhone 7 is 11% more expensive than the iPhone 6S when it was launched last year....

Opinion: As Apple Watch Series 2 enhances fitness...

The Apple Watch Series 2 announcement isn’t earth shattering. Swim proof, built-in GPS, brighter display, faster chip, and same design. Most first-gen Apple Watch users will be satisfied with the speed gains that the watchOS 3 software update offers and won’t consider upgrading, and first time Apple Watch buyers will have a better experience with the new hardware and software from day one.

I’m hardly disappointed personally. I asked for a better sports watch and that’s what Apple delivered. The Series 2 message is so clearly targeted toward health and activity that it’s easy to miss features like Siri and Apple Pay!

It’s especially interesting to me that Apple actually introduced two new Apple Watch models: Series 1 and Series 2. The first-gen Apple Watch is dead. That’s absolutely the right...

Odds that Apple brings back the iPhone's...

If you’re deciding whether to upgrade to the iPhone 7, the possibility of Apple bringing back the headphone jack in future phones probably shouldn’t factor in.

History shows that once Apple makes up its mind on a product’s direction, the company rarely reverses course, even if there’s an outcry from customers. At best, Apple may extend the life of a popular feature through a portion of its product line, but these concessions tend to be temporary. Given Apple’s statements about courage in pursuit of a better experience, the headphone jack isn’t likely to be an exception.

By now, you've probably made the decision on whether or not you're going to upgrade your iPhone and/or Apple Watch. As an Apple blogger who always needs to get the latest and greatest, I've found that there's a quick and sure-fire way to be one of the first to get the new Apple products. Read on for tips on how to make your buying experience as painless and fun as possible.

1) Apple's Website vs. the Apple Store App

For years, Apple's website was the only way to pre-order new equipment. Like clockwork, once the pre-orders began, the website would slow down to a crawl. The past few years, we've had the option of using the free Apple Store App

No, iPhone 6s and 6s Plus cases won't fit the...

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have the exact same dimensions as the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, down to the tenth of a millimeter according to Apple. So you won’t need a new case if you’re upgrading, right? Wrong.

iPhone 6s cases probably won’t fit the iPhone 7 because of the camera bulge on the back of the phone. The camera lens on the iPhone 7 is significantly bigger, and also located a little closer to the edge of the phone. The TrueTone flash on the iPhone 7 is bigger too.


The cameras on the new phones take up more room (iPhone 7 at left, iPhone 7 Plus on the right). Compare these to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus pictured below.

Apple’s answer to charging iPhone 7 while listening...

Apple deprecated what it called “ancient” technology yesterday, with the iPhone 7 lacking a 3.5mm headphone jack. The company is encouraging Bluetooth wireless headphones for audio playback (heralding its new AirPods) or using wired headphones via Lightning. However, with just one port, people who want to listen to music and charge their iPhone 7 at the same time are left with a conundrum.

Apple’s answer to this problem appears to be the $39-49 Lightning Dock which adds a 3.5mm headphone jack when docked.

Opinion: Apple delivered solid updates with iPhone 7...

Even with the deluge of leaks that defines modern Apple reporting, Apple usually shows things at their event that I don’t anticipate or expect. This time, that didn’t really happen. Apple’s 2016 September event was straightforward because Apple’s announcements were straightforward and almost obvious.

The new iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2 are good updates, adding features people wanted and improving things that already exist, don’t get me wrong. They are iterative, though. It is disappointing that both of Apple’s flagship hardware announcements look almost identical to their predecessors.

The updates Apple gave us this year are solid but nothing extraordinary. Nothing that compels me to preorder. I normally leave an Apple event unsatisfied with what I have, wanting the new thing and I really don’t feel that this time..

AirPods hands-on: They stayed in my ears and sounded...

Susie Ochs, writing for Macworld:

I didn’t want to like the AirPods, I really didn’t. But in the hands-on area after Apple’s iPhone 7 event on Wednesday, I found myself dancing along in spite of myself—and the AirPods stayed put, feeling surprisingly secure. With convenient features on both the hardware and software sides, I have to admit that Apple’s totally-wireless AirPods kind of rocked my world.

And (my favorite):

Not only did I dance, I headbanged. I shook my head side to side, I tossed my hair, I jogged in place, and I looked silly doing all of it. The AirPods stayed put, and they stayed loud. The music (more Sia, naturally) sounded full and lush and I couldn’t hear a single word anyone around me was saying, as if I was completely sealed off in a bubble of rock and roll. Pretty impressive.

Obviously, a big part of this is the fit. Give them a try, see how they feel in your ears.

New and existing customers can get an iPhone 7 for free with the trade in of an iPhone 6/6s. T-Mobile will hand you up to $650 in monthly bill credits over a 2-year time span, which covers the cost of a 32GB iPhone 7. If you’re looking at a more expensive model like one with more storage or iPhone 7 Plus, you’ll be required to “pay a little more upfront.” The effective value of this offer is well above what you can expect from traditional trade in services.

T-Mobile’s free iPhone 7 promo is slated to go live at the same time pre-orders ...

Apple: we’re confident that the iPhone 7 will sell...

Apple says it’s confident that the new iPhone 7 — which is available for pre-order starting tomorrow — will be a hot seller. The company has historically provided pre-order sales volume, though now it says considers it "no longer a representative metric" since "initial sales will be governed by supply, not demand."

In a statement o CNBC, Apple said: to CNBC: "We expect iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be incredibly popular with customers and we are thrilled to begin taking pre-orders on September 9. Customers will receive their new iPhones starting September 16. In years past, we've announced how many new iPhones had been sold as of the first weekend following launch. But as we have expanded our distribution through carriers and resellers to hundreds of thousands of locations around the world, we are now at a point where we know before taking the first customer pre-order that we will sell out of iPhone 7....

Apple’s official iPhone 7 page

From the official iPhone 7 page:

iPhone 7 dramatically improves the most important aspects of the iPhone experience. It introduces advanced new camera systems. The best performance and battery life ever in an iPhone. Immersive stereo speakers. The brightest, most colorful iPhone display. Splash and water resistance. And it looks every bit as powerful as it is. This is iPhone 7.

Immerse yourself in the gorgeous imagery. I was immediately drawn to the shiniest of the shiny, the jet black iPhone 7 Plus. I’ve gotten feedback that the matte black finish does a better job of hiding scratches and other imperfections, but I just love the look of this phone. I’ll be careful with it, I promise!

It seems we’re not going to get the chance, however: Apple has just told CNBC that it will not be revealing this information.

The company claims that the decision was made for logistical reasons …

Kirk McElhearn: Apple’s AirPod mistake

Kirk McElhearn:

Yesterday Apple introduced AirPods. What a mistake.

While I appreciate the uniqueness of these headphones, I predict that in a year or two, they’ll have gone the way of the gold Apple Watch Edition.

You know how you’re walking or running and one of your earbuds falls out? You grab the cord, reel it in, and put it back in your ear. And then you go on walking or running. With AirPods, one of them will fall out, and you’ll watch as someone steps on it, or as it falls down a subway grating.

I can also see that, as you get on a bus or subway, someone grabs at one of your AirPods to snatch it, and you’re listening only to one channel of music for the rest of the day.

Click to the main post for my take on all this.

Opinion: Does the iPhone 7 justify the hype, or is...

So, the iPhone 7 is official. Apple is the master of the art of presentation, so the new iPhones were introduced with all the breathless wonder and gorgeous photography we’ve come to expect. But now that the event is over, and we’re examining what we’ve seen in the cold light of day, does the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus justify the hype?

Let’s start with the obvious: there weren’t many surprises. Most of the rumors were true, so what we saw yesterday was – in the main – what we expected.

The design was pretty much identical to the mockups. And the mockups were pretty much identical to the iPhone 6s. The modified antenna lines are much neater, and the camera bump a little less obtrusive, but really the only significantly new thing design-wise were those two black colors …

∞ Why Pokémon Go on Apple Watch is a brilliant match

As those who play Pokémon Go know, the current game requires you to keep your phone out with the app running in order to detect nearby Pokémon, trigger PokéStops, and accumulate egg-hatching kilometers as you walk. This is a battery drainer and a bit of a pain.

With Pokémon Go on your wrist, you can do all of the above with your phone in your pocket. Smart. The only thing that requires your iPhone is the actual act of catching a Pokémon, something that happens occasionally, rather than continuously.

Great partnership here. One that will solidify the existing Pokémon Go base, bring new players, and sell some Apple Watches. Smart.

Future Apple Watch bands may be ‘dynamically...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20160255944) for for “dynamic fit adjustment for wearable electronic devices.” If the invention ever sees the light of day, we could have Apple Watches that allow users to “dynamically adjust” the wearable device’s watchband without having to remove it.

For example, the Apple Watch itself could control one or more actuators that are mechanically coupled to either the housing or to a band attached to the wearable electronic device. In one example, in response to a signal to increase the tightness of the band, the tensioner can cause the actuators to increase the tension within the band.

Some watch bands have an incrementally user-adjustable size (e.g., a buckling clasp, pin and eyelet, etc.) whereas other bands have a substantially fixed size, adjustable only with specialized tools and/or expertise (e.g., folding clasp, deployment clasp, snap-fit clasp, etc.). Still other bands may be elasticated expansion-type...

Irish parliament backs Apple on its tax bill appeal

Ireland's government won strong backing from parliament for its appeal against a €13B (about $14.5 billion) back tax bill the European Commission ordered it to collect from Apple, following 12 hours of debate on Wednesday.

Lawmakers said a failure to challenge the judgment would threaten future investment in Ireland by U.S. companies looking to sell in Europe, a central pillar of the country's decades-old growth strategy.

The European Commission, Europe’s anti-trust and consumer investigation agency, has claimed that Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands have attracted investment and jobs by helping big companies avoid tax in other countries, including EU members. The commission suspects Ireland was too lenient in rulings it gave to Apple and which helped the company shield tens of billions of dollars in profit from taxation. At 12.5%, Ireland’s corporate...

Apple announces Apple Watch Series 2, pre-orders to...

Apple took the wrapping off the second-gen Apple Watch today during its media event.

The new unit, dubbed the “Apple Watch Series 2”, boasts a dual-core processor, a brighter display, swim-proof capabilities and built-in GPS. This new model has a redesigned speaker to make it water-resistant down to 50 meters. Other than that, this updated smartwatch looks near-identical to the first Apple Watch, now known as Apple Watch Series 1, which was only splash-proof.

Unfortunately, the new unit lacks the much-anticipated cellular connectivity, meaning you’ll still need to pair it to an iPhone for data-heavy operations and calls.

As expected, the Apple Watch Series 2 will arrive will watchOS 3 and will be available on September 13th.

Ireland to Europe: No, Apple doesn't owe us

Ireland will join Apple in appealing the European Commission’s finding that Apple owes the country more than US$14 billion in back taxes.

The Dail, Ireland’s parliament, voted 93 to 36 late Wednesday night to file an appeal against the ruling, which came out last week. The government is now set to ask the EC to reverse its ruling, which said Ireland’s tax treatment of Apple from 2003 to 2014 was illegal and distorted competition.

Ireland could stand to gain €13 billion ($14.5 billion) in tax revenue from the ruling, but government officials and lawmakers said imposing the tax would hurt the country’s reputation as a good place to do business.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus handsets hit today.

And that may be why you see your neighbors gathering torches and pitchforks regarding the removal of the headphone jack today.

The new handsets boast a 64-bit four-core A10 Fusion processor, stereo speakers positioned on opposite ends of the device, a flush Force-sensitive home button with a Taptic Engine for haptic feedback, and IP67-standard water and dust resistance. As rumored, the headphone jack has been removed and Apple is offering a wired Lightning in-ear EarPod headphones and a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter are included in the box. Apple is offering Siri-enabled wireless earbuds called AirPods as a separate accessory, available for $159 in late October.

Apple’s media event yesterday keynote introduced the iPhone 7 family and its elimination of the industry-standard 3.5mm headphone jack, along with these Lightning EarPods and wireless AirPods. The Apple-owned Beats brand unveiled the Beats Solo 3 Wireless, Beats X, and Powerbeats 3 Wireless.

All three newly-announced Beats models incorporate Apple’s W1 chipset and thus have the same simplified pairing and setup as the AirPods with iPhone 7 and Watch 2. These new products match, rather than exceed, the technological envelope already created by competitors in the audio and mobile accessories markets,” says Paul Erickson, senior analyst, Connected Home at IHS Technology.

“However, when taken in combination with the W1 chipset, a rise in convenience is offset by a clear aggregate move by Apple to move iOS device owners’ accessories purchases away from third parties and industry standards, and more distinctly into Apple’s own...

The Saddleback Leather Satchel will bring out the...

I live in Nashville, Tennessee, and the stereotype of guys here is that we're burly dudes with cowboy hats and boots who drive pick-ups with gun racks. I'm 160 pounds, go hatless and prefer tennis shoes to boots. I also drive an Escort (gun not included).

But I can ride a horse and -- yippee ki yay -- if the Saddleback Leather Satchel from Saddleback doesn't bring out the cowboy in me. And it may bring out the cowgirl in you ladies.

Saddleback Leather specializes in bags made of real saddle leather. The Saddleback Leather Satchel is a full quarter-inch thick, meticulously cut and hand-stitched, and simply jaw-dropping. You'll have to pony up $308 to $520 for this baby. That's a lot of loot, but I doubt there's a more durable briefcase in existence. And, unlike most of its ilk, this will only look better (more authentic, perhaps) as it experiences wear and tear.

How to send an email with Siri

Yesterday we looked at how to send a text message by dictating with Siri. You can also use Apple’s personal digital assistant on your iPhone or iPad to send an email. Here’s how:

  • Press and hold the Home button to activate Siri (or say “Hey, Siri” if you iPhone supports this feature).
  • Say something like “Email Matt Sellers” or “Send an email to Matt Sellers.” Or you can send an email to multiple recipients with a phrase like “Send an email to Matt Sellers and Katie Sellers.”
  • Siri opens your Messages app and grabs the email address of the person or persons you’re emailing. If the contact has more than one email address, you’ll be asked to choose the address you wish to use.
  • Tell Siri the subject of the email. For example: “Volleyball practice Thursday night.”
  • Dictate to Siri the contents of the email.
  • Wait for Siri to confirm the content of your text.
  • Tap Send or say Yes to send your email.

Super Mario Is Coming To The iPhone

One of the first announcements made at Apple's iPhone 7 launch event was that Nintendo's Super Mario Bros franchise will be coming to the iPhone. The announcement was short, sparse with details, but certainly well received. Popular Mechanics reports: "Nintendo head Shigeru Miyamoto took the stage early in Apple's iPhone 7 reveal in San Francisco today to announce and demonstrate the new game Super Mario Run, the first Mario game for the iPhone. The game is simple: Mario runs completely, a la Temple Run, and you push buttons to make him jump and try to reach the end of the levels. Miyamoto says 'you can play the game one-handed for the very first time.' There's a battle mode, too, where you try to top friends' scores. Super Mario Run will come out sometime this fall before the holiday season. Pricing is TBA, but Miyamoto promises there will be a single price and no in-app purchases." In a separate report via Kotaku, Nintendo said, "We do intend to release the game on Android devices...
