This 1983 demo says so much about Apple’s past,...

[VIDEO] Harry McCracken, FastCompany:

On the evening of January 26, 1983, as a technology-smitten Boston University freshman, I attended the monthly meeting of the Boston Computer Society, which included a demo of Apple’s brand-new Lisa system. Though I know that I came away enormously impressed, I don’t exactly recall the event like it was yesterday. Actually, just one element was permanently etched onto my brain cells: the moment when the Lisa’s bitmapped, proportional, user-selectable typefaces flashed on screen. It was a mind-bender given that other PCs–like my beloved Atari 400–were capable only of displaying a single fixed-width font of no elegance whatsoever.

And:

What I didn’t realize until I watched the video is that seeing the meeting all over again wasn’t just an act of personal nostalgia. Between them, the IIe and Lisa, and the way Apple explained them to us BCS members, are full of lessons that remain resonant in the era of the iPhone.

The iPad lost years for Apple’s media partners

Shira Ovide, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. is revamping its digital bookstore in another attempt to take on Amazon’s dominance. I can’t help thinking: What if?

This is a reference to this article, about Apple remaking the iBooks Store and the iBooks app, simplifying both and making book reading a better experience.

More from Shira:

The missed opportunity was for Apple’s business partners, particularly newspaper and magazine companies, which Apple persuaded to turn themselves inside out to take advantage of the iPad. It turned out that Apple was leading those partners to a dead end.

This is a bit of a curmudgeonly statement, but there is truth at its core. A number of publishers went all in on the iPad, with visions of a simple path from print to digital, with subscriptions intact.

The iPhone X takes the top premium smartphone spot...

Apple has retained the lead in India's premium smartphone market thanks to the iPhone X, according to new data from Counterpoint Research

According to the research group’s latest analysis on the Indian handset market, the premium smartphone segment was the second fastest growing segment (up 20% year-over-year) in calendar year 2017. Counterpoint Research found that:

  • Although the segment is more crowded than a year ago, the top three brands, Apple, OnePlus and Samsung, still contribute to 94% of the overall premium market segment.
  • Apple is still the leader in the premium segment, capturing 47% share during Q4 2017 and 38% during 2017, driven by strong shipments of iPhone X and iPhone 7.
  • However, demand for iPhone 8 remains soft and, as a result, the overall Apple shipments in the premium segment declined 31% year-over-year. The decline is also partly due to last year’s strong...

iOS 11.3 brings final fix to Calculator app

The video (embedded in the main Loop post) shows the fix, with the animation back in place.

Apple to use iOS 12 to focus on stability and...

You shouldn’t go looking to iOS 12 for huge, splashy new features.

Instead, Apple will apparently be giving iOS 12 the Snow Leopard/Mac OS X 10.6 treatment and working on targeting stability, performance, and reliability as opposed to adding in loads of new features. The strategy helped fix what was becoming a growing list of issues and complaints about the Mac operating system. Now it seems that’s what’s happening with the next version of iOS for the iPhone and iPad.

Axios has reported that Apple has decided to primarily work on fixes and improvements instead of new features. Features like a redesigned Home screen, Mail and Photos improvements, and in-car interface changes have been pushed out to 2019.

It’s noted that users will see improvements in iOS’ augmented reality, parental controls and health controls this year.

This change seems to come on the heels of Apple perhaps focusing on features while allowing iOS’s overall quality to slide in its...

Apple today responded to reports that the Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission are probing its decision to throttle older iPhones, confirming that the U.S government has asked questions. From a report: Apple said it would never intentionally "degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades." Apple acknowledged in December that it was secretly slowing the speeds of iPhones in an effort to help preserve aging batteries. In response to consumer backlash, the company dropped the price of battery replacements for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus from $79 to $29.

Wistron, Apple’s primary assembler in India, is close to finalizing a land deal in India’s tech hub of Bengaluru with the company likely to invest about $157 million to develop the site, reports Reuters, quoting two unnamed government officials.

ICT Service Management Solutions, Wistron’s unit that assembles Apple’s low-cost iPhone SE in India, has purportedly been scouting for some 100 acres in and around Bengaluru, capital of the southern Indian state of Karnataka. Wistron is likely to use at least a part of this land to set up new assembly lines for Apple, notes Reuters.

Apple has set its sights on the growing Indian market by pushing for shipments of the smartphone model with the goal of doubling the iPhone's market share in the country over the next five years. Focus Taiwan reported...

Apple sells a record 22 million iPhones in USA...

Counterpoint Research:

According to the latest research from Counterpoint’s Market Pulse program, the US market sold-through 51.2m smartphones during the holiday season quarter of 2017. Apple sell-through during this period was a record 22.39 million smartphones. Apple was able to grow their sell-through market share from 37% to 44%. This is the highest ever market share for Apple in its home market.

Commenting on Apple’s growth story here, Research Director Jeff Fieldhack stated, “Apple shipped a record 22 million iPhones for the first time ever in a quarter in USA and is note-able and impressive feat because the Q4 promotional season was not nearly as aggressive as previous years. In addition, upgrade rates are slightly lower year-over-year as smartphone subscribers are holding onto phones longer. Apple was able to grow their sell through 20% in a market that only grew 2% compared to last year. This means Apple has been successful to take share away from Samsung...

Apple granted two patents involving its AirPods case

Apple has been granted two patents (numbers 9,883,274 and 9,883,277) for an “earbud case with charging system” and “case with inductive charging system to charge a portable device.” Both involve the case for the company’s AirPods case. 

The patent involve a case with  cavities to receive the pair of earbuds. The case also offers charging circuitry configured to initiate charging of the pair of earbuds when an earbud detector detects that the earbuds are inserted within the cavities.

Apple is also working on an AirPods case that will work with the upcoming AirPower from Apple. The AirPower will be able to charge a Qi-compatible iPhone, an Apple Watch, and a pair of AirPods (in a special wireless charging case) at the same time regardless of where they're placed on the pad. AirPower hasn't been priced yet, but guesses have it costing anywhere from $150 - $200.

Apple properly fixes the 1+2+3 Calculator bug in iOS...

There was a big furore in October when the community discovered that the redesigned Calculator app in iOS 11.0 had a semi-serious bug; people noticed that if you typed 1 + 2 + 3 quickly, it would give the incorrect answer. The real problem here was that the fade animation on the operand buttons (+, – etc) would block user interaction until it completed. This meant that if you typed quickly, the second press of the + button when typing 1 + 2 +3 would be ignored, but really this happened with any combination of inputs that pressed the operands quickly.

In iOS 11.2, Apple ‘fixed’ this issue. They removed the animation altogether making state changes instantaneous. It quelled complaints but obviously was not what was originally designed. In iOS 11.3, Apple will rollout the true fix – the animations are back, and do not block user interaction. Video below …

The type of wood, along with how it is treated in the factory, will determine what the instrument looks, sounds, and plays like. Charvel is excited to add 5 new “au natural” models that incorporate a variety of different woods and finishes to enhance the guitar’s natural brilliance.

Some people probably wouldn’t like a natural finish on their guitar, especially for the type of hard rock that Charvel guitars are known for, but I don’t mind at all. I buy and play guitars based on the sound, but I also think these look really good.

US Government Investigates Apple Over iPhone Battery...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from PhoneDog: The U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating Apple about its updates that slowed performance on iPhones with older batteries. Sources speaking to Bloomberg say that the agencies are looking into whether Apple violated securities laws regarding disclosures about its updates that throttled older iPhones. So far, the DOJ and SEC have requested information from Apple. Because the investigation is still early, it's unclear if the agencies will actually take an action against Apple. Apple apologized for not being more clear about its actions after the news of its performance-throttling updates came out, but we've still seen class action lawsuits and now this investigation come out. The good news is that Apple will be more transparent about iPhone battery health and performance in the future, but for now, it'll have to deal with the DOJ and SEC.

One aspect of HomePod that’s gone under the radar is how the device handles software updates. HomePod runs a special version of iOS, which means it gets new updates alongside iOS. The latest software publicly available for it is iOS 11.2.5, which will likely be the version installed on HomePods delivered on February 9th.

Software updates for HomePod will be managed through the Home app. The app will alert users when a new software update is available and will show an interface similar to the one used for iOS updates. Users will have the option to enable automatic updates, although it’s unclear how those will be managed. Updates can be...

Opinion: iOS 12 could finally fix systemic frame...

Today’s news about Apple putting new features on the back burner for iOS 12 means that the company will finally be focusing on polishing up its mobile operating system. After years of interface inconsistencies and frame rate issues, iOS may be getting some much-needed attention on the finer details.

While frame rate issues have gone unnoticed by many, prominent YouTuber and entrepreneur Chris Pirillo has been documenting his findings over the years with a public list of issues. The most jarring and obvious frame rate issue is when invoking Siri and trying to access Control Center. This is an example of an “unlikely situation, so Apple didn’t check,” which some feel has been Apple’s software mantra with iOS 7 and beyond.

While it’s good to hear about Apple shifting focus...

U.S. DoJ, SEC investigating Apple over ‘Batterygate’

The U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating whether Apple violated securities laws concerning its disclosures about a software update that slowed older iPhone models, reports Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter.”

The government has purportedly requested information from the company. The inquiry is in early stages, so it’s too soon to conclude any enforcement will follow, according to Bloomberg.

This isn’t the first query about the matter by the U.S. government On Jan. 10, it was reported that Sen. John Thune (R., S.D.), chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, pressed Apple for answers to a...

U.S. investigating Apple over slowing iPhones

The U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating whether Apple Inc. violated securities laws concerning its disclosures about a software update that slowed older iPhone models, according to people familiar with the matter.

The government has requested information from the company, according to the people, who asked not to be named because the probe is private. The inquiry is in early stages, they cautioned, and it’s too soon to conclude any enforcement will follow.

With the hubbub over this, I’m not surprised that the government is asking questions. I don’t think this will go any farther considering the reason Apple did this was to actually help phones last longer without unexpectedly quitting.

External Link: Strava Fitness Network Reveals Secret...

How’s this for an unintended consequence? The Strava fitness app, which brands itself as the “social network for athletes,” lets users map their workouts, which has led to a potentially deadly security breach. U.S. troops stationed abroad are using Strava to share their workouts, and a heat map released by the company reveals the locations of military bases and travel routes—some known, others not. The company responded by pointing out the app’s privacy settings, but this is likely a problem the military will have to solve with smarter policy.

iOS 12: Fewer new features with focus on quality and...

It’s rare that Apple fans cheer a lack of new features in an upcoming product, but that may be the case with the next round of iPhone updates. After a flurry of embarrassing bugs in this year’s release of iOS, Apple is reportedly scaling back its plans for iOS 12 as it shifts its focus to quality and performance. And iPhone users should applaud this decision.

What's new in iOS 12?

iOS 12 will certainly add new features, just not as many as originally planned. That is, if this story by Axios is true.

This rare alignment of three different lunar phenomena—a total lunar eclipse, a full moon at perigee, and a blue moon—will be visible in the night and early morning skies for much of the world on Wednesday, January 31.

The Grammy’s viewership decline and the future

Om Malik:

Why sit through the whole show, when you know the best bits are going to be online soon, to be viewed later. Bruno Mars and Cardi B performance from Grammys has 5.2 million views on YouTube. The performances of Logic, Keesha, Lady Gaga and Sam Smith garnered a whopping 4 million views; the numbers are staggering compared to the “linear television” viewership.

Viewership for the Grammy’s was way down this year and I think Om is right on the reason why.

  • Unified mesh Siri
  • Voice ID and deep, personal context
  • HomePod mini

There are some great ideas here, some obvious, some not so obvious. The thing I love about most of these is the fact that Apple can implement them with an update (sorry HomePod mini).

Apple delays iOS features to focus on reliability

Pushed into 2019 are a number of features including a refresh of the home screen and in-car user interfaces, improvements to core apps like mail and updates to the picture-taking, photo editing and sharing experiences.

This isn’t a new strategy for Apple—they have used this strategy in macOS for a number of years and it’s worked great. With all of the new features in iOS over the past several years, the time had to come when Apple took a step back and focused on reliability and performance.

Apple, their move to custom chips, and Macs with...

Mark Gurman, Bloomberg:

Steve Jobs long believed Apple should own the technologies inside its products rather than rely on mashups of components from other chip makers, including Samsung, Intel and Imagination Technologies. In 2008, the company made a small but significant step in that direction by acquiring boutique chip maker P.A. Semi. Two years later, Jobs unveiled the iPad. The world focused on the tablet’s giant touchscreen, book-reading prowess and creativity apps. But the most ground-breaking technology was hidden away inside: the A4, Apple’s first processor designed in-house.

And:

Apple’s push into the complicated and pricey chips business makes sense so long as the company is selling 300 million devices a year.

An interesting read. Lots of solid reasons for Apple to roll their own chips. Cost savings, for sure, but there’s also self-reliance. They can control chip production and act quickly if and when a flaw/vulnerability is discovered.
