Macs sales set an all-time quarterly record with 5.4...

Mac sales were up 25% year-over-year by unit number in Apple’s fiscal 2017 fourth quarter that ended Sept. 30. Apple desktop/laptop numbers were 5.4 million for the quarter compared to the 4.9 million Macs sold in the same period of 2016.

The quarter was an all-time sales high for Macs in Greater China. Worldwide Mac and iPad sales set all-time highs in global education markets. Apple CEO Tim Cook said the fiscal 2017 fourth quarter saw the highest annual Mac revenue in Apple’s history thanks to notebook refresh and back-to-school sales.

He adds that the “Mac experience has become even better since the September launch of macOS High Sierra. Cook says it packs new technology making it more reliable, capable, and responsive and that lays the foundation for future innovations.

Apple Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri says that the Mac continues to gain traction in the enterprise market. The market saw an all-time record for customer purchases in fiscal year 2017...

Apple's $52.6B fourth quarter is nothing...

Apparently the iPhone 8 isn’t selling as poorly as people think. In the quarter ending September 30, Apple Thursday reported revenue of $52.6 billion, an increase of 12 percent from the year-ago quarter’s $46.9 billion, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $2.07, up 24 percent from $1.67 in 2016.

Apple’s international sales were particularly strong, accounting for more than 60 percent of the quarter’s revenue. The all-important Greater China market was up 12 percent year over year.

Apple sold 46.7 million iPhones, 10.3 million iPads, and 5.4 million Macs during the quarter, all healthy increases over the prior year. The Mac and iPad units both saw double-digit increases in year-over-year sales. Apple CFO Luca Maestri said sales of MacBook Pros drive Mac growth, while iPad sales were up more than 25 percent in China.

Apple announces Q4 2017 revenue of $52.6b: 46.7m...

We’re just hours away from the launch of the iPhone X (ahhh!), but first Apple has to report how its last quarter went which includes initial iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus sales. iPhone X only became available for pre-order last Friday and won’t appear in today’s results.

In addition to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple’s fiscal year 2017 fourth quarter results also include Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV 4K.

So how did Apple perform last quarter with the iPhone X looming over the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus? Apple reports $52.6b in revenue and $10.7b profit from 46.7m iPhones, 10.3m iPads, and 5.4m Macs sold. Next quarter Apple forecasts revenue between $84 billion and $87 billion (that’s a lot).

FY17 Q4 results compare to the previous quarter’s $45.4 billion in revenue, $8.72 billion in profit, 41 million iPhones, 11.4 million iPads, and 4.29 million Macs. In the same quarter...

From a report: Qualcomm alleged in a lawsuit filed in the California state court in San Diego on Wednesday that Apple used its commercial leverage to demand unprecedented access to the chipmaker's highly confidential software, including source code. Apple began to use Intel's broadband modem chips in the iPhone 7, which it launched last year.

iOS 11 overtakes 10.3 in less than a month

Apple’s iOS 11 has overtaken its former version iOS 10.3 less than a month after release according to web analytics company Statcounter.

App Developer Access To iPhone X Face Data Spooks...

A reader shares a report: Apple won accolades from privacy experts in September for assuring that facial data used to unlock its new iPhone X would be securely stored on the phone itself. But Apple's privacy promises do not extend to the thousands of app developers who will gain access to facial data in order to build entertainment features for iPhone X customers, such as pinning a three-dimensional mask to their face for a selfie or letting a video game character mirror the player's real-world facial expressions. Apple allows developers to take certain facial data off the phone as long as they agree to seek customer permission and not sell the data to third parties, among other terms in a contract seen by Reuters. App makers who want to use the new camera on the iPhone X can capture a rough map of a user's face and a stream of more than 50 kinds of facial expressions. This data, which can be removed from the phone and stored on a developer's own servers, can help monitor how often...

Rene Ritchie iPhone X review: “The best damn product...

This is a long review, chock full of detail. Definitely worth your time.

A few pieces on Face ID, just to give you a taste:

Here’s where there’s a difference between Touch ID and Face ID: Touch ID throws away the original enrollment images of your fingerprints almost immediately. Face ID keeps the original enrollment images of your face (but crops them as tightly as possible so as not to store background information). That’s for convenience. Apple wants to be able to update the neural networks for Face ID without you having to re-register your face each time.

And:

The True Depth camera reads the data and captures a randomized sequence of 2D images and depth maps which are then digitally signed and send to the Secure Enclave for comparison. (Randomization also protects against spoofing attacks.)

The portion of the Neural Engine inside the Secure Enclave converts the captured data into math and the secure Face ID neural networks compare it with the...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170315691) for a “mapping application with an interactive compass.” It involves the Maps app for macOS, iOS, and watchOS devices.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that, with the proliferation of computing devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops, users are enjoying numerous applications of numerous kinds that can be run on their devices. One popular type is the mapping app, which allows user to browse maps. 

Despite their popularity, these mapping apps have shortcomings with their user interfaces and features that can cause inconvenience to the users, according to Apple. For example, users may be limited in the variety of tools they may use to navigate a map. Furthermore, the existing tools may be limited in the variety of operations that they may be used to perform. 

Apple’s idea: a mapping app that includes several “novel” on-screen controls. In some embodiments, these novel controls include one or...

ACLU raises privacy concerns over app developer...

Ben Lovejoy, 9to5Mac:

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has raised privacy concerns about developer access to the facial expressions of iPhone X users. In particular, they say that Apple allows developers to capture facial expression data and store it on their own servers.

When the iPhone X was launched, Apple was careful to stress that the 3D face recognition model used by Face ID was stored only on the phone itself. The data is never transferred to Apple servers. But the ACLU says that app developers are allowed to transmit and store some face data.

Interesting article. Lots of layers to this issue. There’s face tracking (think Animoji) and attention detection (are you actually watching your screen). How much of this data is hidden behind an API? In other words, does Apple simply tell a developer whether you are paying attention to the screen, or do they give you more specific data, like the current screen location on which you are currently focused...

Apple has determined that some Apple Watch Series 3 models have an issue causing “edge stripes” to appear on the display after time.

In an internal memo distributed to Genius Bars and Apple Authorized Service Providers, Apple said the issue is to be treated like any other Apple Watch repair. Since the issue appears to be a manufacturing defect, the repair should be free under Apple’s standard one-year limited warranty policy.

If you have a GPS Series 3 Apple Watch, or plan to buy one, take a look at the image in Joe’s post so you know what to look for. Sounds like Apple acknowledges the issue, has your back if you do run into this.

The tech giant has promised that the facial data used to unlock the next gen smartphone will be securely stored on the phone itself. However, Apple’s privacy promises don’t extend to the thousands of app developers who will gain access to facial data in order to build entertainment features for iPhone X customers, such as pinning a three-dimensional mask to their face for a selfie or letting a video game character mirror the player’s real-world...

Apple joins other tech companies in opposing the...

Apple has joined a legal challenge by more than 100 tech companies against a decision to end protection for so-called “Dreamer” immigrants, reports Reuters.

A legal briefing was filed Wednesday afternoon on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects immigrants brought into the U.S illegally as children from deportation and which the Trump administration has decided to scrap, the article adds. The filing is in support of a lawsuit filed by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra in the Northern District of California. Becerra filed an additional motion — the one supported by Apple — on Wednesday that seeks to put a block on the withdrawal of DACA.

“Apple will be harmed significantly if it can no longer benefit from the hard work, creativity, and intelligence of its...

Apple is due to report its fiscal Q4 (calendar Q3) earnings later today, and Wall Street analysts expect the company to report revenue bang in the middle of the company’s guidance.

Perhaps reflecting the fact that it was difficult even for Apple to judge how many people would buy the iPhone 8 in September versus holding out for the iPhone X, the company gave unusually wide guidance this time around …

macOS and iOS market share down (slightly) in October

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for both macOS and iOS dipped (slightly)  last month. 

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 6.25% of the global market share in October, down from from 6.35% percent in September (that’s global market share; in the U.S. it’s over 13%). April 2016’s 9.2% was an all-time high, according to NetMarketShare’s measurements. Windows remains dominant with 90.77%.

iOS had 31.46% in October, up from 32.34% in September. This compares to 66.74% for Android, 0.73% for Windows Phone, and 0.37% for Java ME. The all-time high for iOS was in July 2012 with 65.94%.

NetMarketShares’ monthly surveys don’t measure market share in terms of computer systems sold. Instead they sample data from visitors to some 40,000 web sites operated by their clients. And note that NetMarketShare’s numbers don’t equate to sales.

Stop apps from asking for reviews in iOS 11

If you dislike the pop-up windows from apps constantly asking you to leave a review in iOS 11, you put an end to it. Here’s how:

  • Go to the Settings app.
  • Tap on iTunes, then App Store.
  • Turn the In-App Ratings & Review option off.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple's support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)

ACLU raises privacy concerns over app developer...

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has raised privacy concerns about developer access to the facial expressions of iPhone X users. In particular, they say that Apple allows developers to capture facial expression data and store it on their own servers.

When the iPhone X was launched, Apple was careful to stress that the 3D face recognition model used by Face ID was stored only on the phone itself. The data is never transferred to Apple servers. But the ACLU says that app developers are allowed to transmit and store some face data …

Cartographer for the Mac makes it easy to add...

By Aaron Lee

False Victories' Cartographer is a maps app for the Mac that allows developers to add annotations to maps without the need to enter coordinates by hand. The app has been designed to work with Apple's MapKit framework on both macOS and iOS. 

Annotations and shapes can be colored and titled with appropriate details. Once a map has been annotated, the details can be stored as a custom file format, or in the standard GeoJSON format. This exported file can then be used in a developer's own MapKit application saving the time of having to enter all the data manually.

Cartographer has a range of potential applications and was initially written to aid in the development of an iOS application for a music festival. This allowed numerous different locations within the festival including points of interest to be added and edited quickly, decreasing the App development time considerably and allowing last minute changes.

Apple releases security updates for KRACK, other...

A few critical security updates also shipped out with Tuesday’s macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 update.

Apple also released Security Update 2017-004 and Security Update 2017-001 macOS Sierra, which address the KRACK security exploit.

KRACK is a vulnerability in the WPA2 encryption standard for Wi-Fi networks that lets attackers decrypt the data passing to and from a specific device. The vulnerability exists in most any device capable of using WPA2 on Wi-Fi networks and once it was publicly disclosed product manufacturers started scrambling to release patches.

The updates can be located, downloaded and installed via the Mac App Store’s “Updates” section provided you’re running macOS 10.11 or later.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

Following a successful preorder launch, Apple on Tuesday updated a handful of international websites to reflect new iPhone X Reserve and Pickup options set to begin on Nov. 4, giving customers another route to purchase.

Over in Australia, Belgium, and the U.K., customers will have the option to show up and reserve an iPhone X unit at 6 AM on November 4th. Potential iPhone X buyers in Canada, Hong Kong, Switzerland and UAE will be able to place their reservation at 8 a.m. that day as well.

Upon arrival, buyers will complete a short form online, wherein they’ll be issued a unique registration code and have 30 minutes to visit the store they selected to complete the transaction.

Apple has gone on record to say that it has no plans to initiate a Reserve and Pickup system in the U.S. The company went on to state that the traditional pay ahead and pickup option is available.

Yesterday, there was a report that Apple is designing iPhones and iPads for next year that would jettison the chipmaker's components. Modem chips from Intel and possibly MediaTek would be placed in the devices instead as Qualcomm is reportedly withholding software critical to testing its chips in Apple prototypes, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Not so fast, says Canaccord. The investment bank’s analyst, Mike Walkley, doesn’t think Apple can afford to “design out” Qualcomm, at the moment, especially given the impending arrival of 5G wireless services in the coming years. Here’s what he tells Barron’s:
