Editorial: Apple's AirPods, iPhone 7, Series 2...

The September 7 Apple Event raised some troubling questions for many tech journalists and their prewritten narratives. It's almost as if they'd been caught in a huge lie and were now forced to ad-lib a toddler-like series of distractions in a bid to avoid any consequences to their reputations. They're often wrong, here's why.

How Star Trek artists imagined the iPad… nearly 30...

To continue our celebration of Star Trek's 50th anniversary, we've decided to resurface a few of our favorite Trek stories from the Ars archives—like this one from August 2010. Nowadays, an iPad or tablet is some ho-hum consumer electronics device. But in the late 1980s?

One interesting characteristic of Star Trek: The Next Generation—one that separated it from the original series and most of the early films—was its widespread use of smooth, flat, touch-based control panels throughout the Enterprise-D. This touch interface was also used for numerous portable devices known as PADDs, or Personal Access Display Devices. These mobile computing terminals bear a striking resemblance to Apple's iPad—a mobile computing device largely defined by its smooth, flat touchscreen interface.

To understand the thinking that led to the design of the Star...

Intel Breaks Qualcomm's Hold On Apple's...

Long-time Slashdot reader randomErr writes: In a big blow to Qualcomm, Apple plans to incorporate Intel baseband chips into at least some models of the new iPhone 7. The selection of Intel chip means that in newer iPhones Apple will no longer support CDMA technology popularized by Qualcomm. The Wall Street Journal states that many industry analysts believe Intel could be supplying as many as half of of baseband chips for Apple's handsets.

This was the last key iPhone component that didn't have two sources, and the Journal estimates that Intel's revenues could now increase by up to $700 million before the end of 2016.

Meet Marty Edwards, our newest Apple World Today...

Hi, I’m Marty Edwards, a longtime computer user and experimenter. I saw my first computer during my senior year of high school in 1978, a TRS-80 at Radio Shack. I graduated from Freed-Hardeman College in 1982. That year I purchased my first computer-- a Texas Instruments 99/4a. I soon acquired an IBM PC. I still have a fondness for those large, loud keyboards and I use a comparable one even now.

Throughout the years I’ve done IT work and networking for numerous businesses, medical offices, engineering and government offices, as well as for individual clients. I was involved in setting up networks well before Ethernet and Wi-Fi, using coaxial cable to do the job.

I grew up in the tech...

Apple eyeing augmented reality content lens support...

Apple’s iOS might be first to support an augmented reality contact lens system currently in development at EP Global Communications, as the two companies are reportedly scheduled to meet next week to discuss potential platform integrations.

According to a tweet posted to EPGL's official Twitter account late last month, the firm is slated to meet with Apple on Sept. 13 "to explore use of iOS for mobile in future augmented reality lenses." EPGL has not yet settled on a single mobile operating system to pair with its AR contact lens project, the company clarified in a statement to AppleInsider.

"We are having an introductory conversation with Apple about the iOS platform, being the chosen platform for our augmented lens...

Rumor: Apple rethinking its self-driving car project

Apple is “rethinking” what it plans to do about self-driving cars, reports The New York Times. The company has shuttered parts of its “Apple Car” project and laid off dozens of employees, the article adds quoting three unnamed “people briefed on the move who were not allowed to speak about it publicly.” Keep in mind that the company has never confirmed any automotive plans beyond its CarPlay initiative.

In July, Apple lured Bob Mansfield,  a former senior vice president of technologies, to take over the project, code-named “Titan.” Under his guidance, Apple reportedly changed the focus of the project, shifting from an emphasis on designing and producing an automobile to building out the underlying technology for an autonomous vehicle.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Packs 3GB RAM, Early A10 Fusion...

MojoKid writes from a report via HotHardware: Apple's A10 Fusion processor, paired with the iPhone 7, is already making its mark on benchmark circuit. Although you may or may not be impressed with Apple's new handset, as usual, Cupertino's latest smartphone is looking very strong performance-wise. According to Geekbench numbers, which showcase the iPhone 7 Plus running iOS 10.0.1 (Golden Master), the 5.5-inch smartphone has 3GB of RAM onboard (the iPhone 7 reportedly contains 2GB RAM). Compared to the previous generation iPhone 6s Plus, this is an increase of 1GB. Compared to Android flagships, which come with 4GB or even 6GB of RAM, 3GB might seem paltry. However, benchmarks show time and time again that Apple's SoCs are among the fastest in the industry and simply do more with less resources. Apple says that the advances it has made with the A10 allow the processor to be twice as fast as the A8 in the iPhone 6 Plus and 40 percent faster than the A9 in the iPhone 6s Plus. The...

Apple is granted a patent for a flexible battery pack

Future iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches — and who knows?, perhaps Macs — may be more bendable. Apple has been granted a patent (number 20160260945) for a “flexible battery pack.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes that the form factors of modern electronic devices often require flexible battery arrangements, whereas conventional battery packs are often too rigid to flexibly conform to these form factors. In addition to flexibility problems, conventional battery packs also have drawbacks associated with reliability. For example, conventional batteries that include multiple cells may fail because moisture or dust enters the cavity of any one of the multiple cells. 

Unfortunately, if one of the multiple cells within the battery fails, the entire battery often fails. Apple says that, accordingly, flexible battery packs that overcome one or more of the drawbacks of conventional battery packs are desirable. 

Here’s a summary of the invention: “The flexible battery...

‘Courage’

Steve Jobs, on stage with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher in 2010, explaining Apple’s decision not to support Adobe Flash on iOS:

We’re trying to make great products for people, and we have at
least the courage of our convictions to say we don’t think this is
part of what makes a great product, we’re going to leave it out.
Some people are going to not like that, they’re going to call us
names […] but we’re going to take the heat [and] instead focus our
energy on these technologies which we think are in their
ascendancy and we think are going to be the right technologies for
customers. And you know what? They’re paying us to make those
choices. […] If we succeed, they’ll buy them, and if we don’t, they
won’t, and it’ll all work itself out.

Apple Removed Headphone Jack From New iPhones...

Apple's new iPhones -- the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus -- don't have the headphone jack. The company's SVP Phil Schiller said the move signifies "courage" from the company to put a 100-year-old audio standard to bed. But there could be one more reason for this transition to a Bluetooth/Wireless headphones future: it owns the largest Bluetooth headphones company -- Beats. The Verge reports: More likely is that the lack of a headphone jack on the iPhone -- and increasingly, on Android phones as well -- will lead to an uptick in sales of Bluetooth headphones. And it just so happens that Apple owns the number one Bluetooth headphone company, Beats. Beats brings in more revenue from Bluetooth headphones than LG, Bose, or Jaybird, according to NPD figures released in July. In terms of unit sales, it controls over a quarter of the Bluetooth headphone market. Bluetooth headphones are also disproportionately profitable among headphones. NPD has them accounting for 54 percent of all dollars...

The investor note, which makes reference to a general belief that all the new iPhone models will come with a dual-camera module in 2017 as a trickle-down effect, places doubt on the possibility of the dual camera being adopted in non-Plus iPhones.

This “courageous” move is seen to help push forward wireless audio technology, all the while giving Apple a few more millimeters to work with in the device’s internals.

Not without controversy, this decision does mean leaving a lot of wired headphones in the dust. Not everyone will find the AirPods, expected in October, the default choice and we figured this would be a good time as any to roundup the 9to5Mac team’s opinions on their current favorite pair (or 2) of wireless headphones.

Verizon Wireless has joined rival carriers T-Mobile and Sprint in running a free iPhone 7 launch promo. The terms of Verizon’s deal pretty much mirror that of the other carriers.

You’ll receive $650 for a qualifying trade-in of iPhone 6/s and iPhone 6/s Plus as credit across 24-months when you purchase iPhone 7. The credit should show up on your bill within 2-3 cycles. To receive the full credit the line must be active for the full 2-years, which would come into play if you’re planning to upgrade next year.

Verizon isn’t too specific on device trade requirements, only saying that it “must be in good working & cosmetic condition.” No matter which iPhone 7/Plus you order, you’...

How to get a discount on the Apple Music Family...

A few days ago, I wrote about the $99 offer for a year of Apple Music. This offer was only good on the individual plan.

If you have a Family Sharing plan, read the linked post. It details a $100 iTunes gift card that you buy for $85 and can, supposedly, apply to your Family plan.

DC Rainmaker does a nice job capturing the images and details of the new Apple Watch concerning GPS and water resistance. Be sure to check out the breakout images showing the speaker placement in the original Apple Watch, vs that in the new Apple Watch.

I really like the image of the water testing chamber, too.

First-world problems, Part Two: a big thumbs-down on...

Photo by gpointstudio/iStock / Getty Images

I have to admit to being grumpy this morning. Part of is that I'm almost 59 years old and fit the "Grumpy Old Man" persona, but the other has to do with the experience I had early this morning ordering an iPhone 7 Plus. Dennis Sellers has already relayed his displeasure, now it's my turn to weigh in.

Oddly enough, the past few early-morning pre-order sessions have gone well, so there is either a lot of pent-up demand for the iPhone 7 series or Apple's pre-order system just doesn't scale well. I followed my own instructions that had worked flawlessly the past few times, getting my order ready to go in the Apple Store app ahead of time. So when I woke up at 12:55 AM MDT, I figured I'd be back in bed in about 10 minutes.

Wrong. First, the website and Apple Store app seemed to...

Did you catch Nintendo’s press conference on Wednesday? It was easily the company’s best showing in ages… and it wasn’t even at a Nintendo event. It was Apple’s, of course, and the much-anticipated conference also brought us the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2.

But Mario nearly stole the show, as the iconic plumber protagonist was shown in his very first mobile adventure, Super Mario Run. Gaming’s most legendary creative mind, Mario designer Shigeru Miyamoto, appeared onstage and charmed with his demonstration...

MacStories Apple Watch Series 2 overview

Alex Guyot, writing for MacStories, pulls together a nice overview of the new Apple Watch. My biggest question concerned swimming with the Apple Watch 2. From the post:

The original Apple Watch was rated to be splash proof and mostly water resistant, but submerging it was not recommended. The Apple Watch Series 2 ups the ante, receiving a water resistance rating of up to 50 meters. This means the Apple Watch can now safely be worn for swimming in pools or the ocean, and should generally remove any worry about wearing your Apple Watch into potentially watery situations.

I think swimmers are going to love the new Apple Watch.

iPhone 7 reader verdict: What you thought, and which...

I gave my verdict on the iPhone 7 yesterday, and asked for yours. The majority of you – some 54% – said that the new iPhone was as expected. That’s not particularly surprising given than we’d previously reported almost everything we saw, but 28% of you were still impressed, while 17% were disappointed.

Impressed or not, though, the majority of those who took part in the poll are intending to buy the new iPhone. Interestingly, and perhaps influenced by the dual-camera, more than twice as many of you are opting for the larger iPhone 7 Plus than its smaller sibling …

The Federal Aviation Administration’s official site:

In light of recent incidents and concerns raised by Samsung about its Galaxy Note 7 devices, the Federal Aviation Administration strongly advises passengers not to turn on or charge these devices on board aircraft and not to stow them in any checked baggage.

In my lifetime, I cannot think of a time when a specific product was called out in this way. As in, we urge you not to even pack this specific product in your luggage.

I can’t imagine what the Samsung corporate folks are going through right now. Airlines are banning the phone, there are stories of car fires. This is truly terrible.

How-To: Create animated charts for Final Cut Pro X...

In our recent video about the upcoming dual camera feature on the new iPhone 7 Plus, we featured an animated graph charting iPhone camera improvements over the years. Instead of relying on Motion or a third party plugin to pull off the animation in Final Cut Pro X, we tapped into Keynote instead.

While it’s true that Keynote is primarily a presentation app in the same vein as Microsoft’s PowerPoint, it can also work as a handy Final Cut Pro X companion for producing quick animated graphs and charts. Watch our video walkthrough to see how it’s done....

My frustrating attempts to buy an iPhone 7 Plus and...

I’m tired, very tired, as I write this at 8:30 a.m. (Central). I was up at 2 a.m. (Central) to order an iPhone 7 Plus and an Apple Watch Nike+. I though the process would be simple since was up and at ‘em so early. I was wrong.

At least half wrong. Ordering the Apple Watch Nike + was pretty simple. The shipping date is slated as late October. I wish it were sooner, but, as a runner, I wanted the edition targeted especially to runners. Besides, if you haven’t yet ordered a non-Nike Apple Watch, it may not arrive any sooner than mine. My daughter-in-law ordered the stainless steel/sports band model, and she was told it would arrive in late October.

But trying to get an iPhone 7 Plus is/was a different matter entirely. I went to Apple’s online store, selected the iPhone 7 Plus/black/256GB/Verizon model with the goal of signing up for the Apple Upgrade Plan.

I was asked to enter my wireless number, billing zip code, and the last four digits of my Social Security...

Survey: first it was cord cutting, now it’s ’show-...

TiVo has released findings from a sponsored survey of pay TV and over-the-top (OTT) service subscribers in the U.S., Europe and Asia. The global study is a follow-up to Rovi’s 2015 consumer survey, delving deeper into how viewers engage with content and explore the services and devices that make up their entertainment lifestyle.

Above all, this year’s survey revealed that viewers continue to feel the shockwaves of an industry that is undergoing a significant transition. Ensuring predictable ongoing engagement of audiences, once the hallmark of a successful television series, may be becoming much more challenging.

The survey revealed that while consumers continue to consume significant hours of entertainment content daily, their viewership is becoming potentially more transient, with many viewers “show dumping”—giving up on shows they love because it became too difficult and/or costly to access them.

External Link: Why Apple Removed the iPhone...

Many people were angered by Apple removing the standard 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7, assuming that it was an intentional plan to increase wireless headphone sales for Apple subsidiary Beats. That fact may have played a role in the decision, but BuzzFeed’s John Paczkowski offers a thorough and compelling narrative behind Apple’s decision: the company just ran out of space for it. “We’ve got this 50-year-old connector — just a hole filled with air — and it’s just sitting there taking up space, really valuable space,” said Dan Riccio, Apple’s senior vice president of hardware engineering. “It was holding us back from a number of things we wanted to put into the iPhone. It was fighting for space with camera technologies and processors and battery life.” The camera systems in the iPhone 7 models are much larger than in previous models, and Apple engineers found that the easiest way to cram all the parts in was to remove the headphone jack. Removing it also allowed for water...

Macy’s the first department store to host one of the tech giant’s emporia, but it will also be able to sell the Apple Watch at more than 180 stores in time for the Thanksgiving to Christmas rush. “It will be in all of our top buildings for the holiday season,” said Gennette, who will take over as CEO early next year.

Macy’s Herald Square store has been around for 150 years. ”America's Largest Department Store" covers an entire city block with 11 levels.

Apple Watch Diary: Why the four things I do with...

I’ve never been one to shy away from admitting when my first impression of a technology turns out to be wrong. I initially saw smartwatches as a solution in search of a problem, and didn’t think I would keep mine. It took just four days of use to make me think that maybe I’d hang onto it after all, one week in I was tentatively sold – and by the three-month point, I had to call myself a convert.

The only question this time around, then, was whether I was going to upgrade to the Series 2. The new fitness features sold it (...

The ultra-expensive $10,000 Apple Watch is no more.

In its place, Apple has released the $1,249 Ceramic model, which serves as Apple’s new top shelf unit.

Apple is currently touting the Ceramic model’s durability and scratch resistance as a luxury feature worth the extra money. The company is claiming that the proprietary metal is four times harder than steel and thus that much more durable.

The Ceramic model accompanies the other models of the Apple Watch: Series 1, Series 2, Series 2 Nike+ and Series 2 Hermés. The Series 2 is still available in a “Rose Gold” flavor as well as an assortment of other colors.

If you’ve been pondering the new Apple Watch or its Ceramic edition, please let us know in the comments.

While the focus of the Apple media event centered on the iPhone 7 and the Apple Watch Series 2, Apple nixed the 16 GB model of its iPad variants and is now offering 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB storage capacities.

The iPad Pro has had the biggest shakeup with pricing on higher storage tiers falling. The 9.7 inch iPad Pro costs $599 for 32 GB, $699 for 128 GB, and $799 for 256 GB. The 12.9 inch iPad Pro costs $799 for 32 GB, 128 GB for $899 and 256 GB for $999.

The iPad Air 2 is now available in 32 GB and 12 GB capacities and can be purchased for $399 and $499. The iPad mini 4 is the same storage options and the same price points.

The iPad mini 2 seems to be on its way out, as it’s currently being offered in only a single 32 GB configuration at a $269...

Apple takes courageous risks with the iPhone 7 to...

Apple needs the iPhone 7 to be a major success because it is the main driver of growth for the whole company, according to Paul Erickson, senior analyst, Connected Home at IHS Technology. Direct revenues for the iPhone represented 57% of total Apple revenue in the second calendar quarter, but the importance of the iPhone for Apple is much greater than direct revenues alone, he adds.

“We expect the new iPhone 7 camera design will successfully convince consumers to upgrade their older iPhones, despite the lack of headphone socket,” says Erickson. “IHS Technology forecasts Apple will ship 209 million iPhone units in 2016.”

The camera is the most significant iPhone 7 feature, he adds. With the new iPhone 7 range design, Apple is correctly focusing on the defining feature of flagship smartphones, the camera. Ericsson says Apple benefits in several ways from the improved iPhone 7 camera:

No, Apple isn’t entering the shoe business (at least as far as I know), but the company did make a pair of kicks in the 1990s. Apparently only one pair of the sneakers were ever produced. I think some Apple branded shoes would be cool as part of an “iWear” line.

The tennis shoes apparently didn't garner much interest, so Apple abandoned them as promotional items, according to BitRebels. They were made from the typical white leather material of the times and sport Apple's rainbow logo on the tongue and on the side. 

The shoes were first sold to an Apple employee in the mid-'90s. In 2011, they were put up for auction on eBay. Scott King, won the...
