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.

  • 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.

Songwriters score streaming services pay hike

Bloomberg:

Songwriters will get a larger cut of revenue from streaming services after a court handed technology companies a big defeat.

The Copyright Royalty Board ruled that songwriters will get at least a 15.1 percent share of streaming revenues over the next five years, from a previous 10.5 percent. That’s the largest rate increase in CRB history, according to a statement from the National Music Publishers’ Association.

The decision is a major victory for songwriters, who have long complained they are insufficiently [compensated] by on-demand music services like Spotify and YouTube. Streaming services account for the largest share of music industry sales in the U.S., while global streaming sales jumped 60 percent in 2016, according to the IFPI.

Obviously, a big deal for artists. Question is, will this force a change to the pricing of Apple Music and other services?

IndieWire, on Soderbergh’s upcoming movie, Unsane:

Taking a page from Sean Baker’s “Tangerine,” Soderbergh shot the whole movie on an iPhone. While Baker has said he used a phone instead of traditional cameras due to budgetary constraints, Soderbergh said he was so impressed with the quality of iPhone cinematography that he would likely continue to use phones to shoot his movies going forward.

And:

“I think this is the future,” he said. “Anybody going to see this movie who has no idea of the backstory to the production will have no idea this was shot on the phone. That’s not part of the conceit.”

The filmmaker has experimented with digital cinematography for years, going back to 2002’s “Full Frontal,” but found that the iPhone offered unparalleled quality. “People forget, this is a 4k capture,” said Soderbergh, who was long a passionate advocate for the high-end RED cameras...

Apple granted a design patent for a new Mac monitor

Apple has been granted a design patent (D808,965) for what looks like a new computer monitor. One of the complaints about previous Cinema and Thunderbolt displays, as well as iMacs, is that, while they can tilt, their height can’t be adjusted.

The design patent seems to show a display that addresses those issues. Apple is working on a new, modular Mac Pro and a standalone display. This patent could reflect an upcoming screen. It’s unclear if such a monitor would also be able to easily swivel from side to side, a feature some users have wanted in Apple displays and iMacs. 

Of course, Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product.

In some embodiments, the Apple Glasses may detect the user's movements using one or more sensors and may adjust the displayed image based on the user's movements. For example, the device may detect a user's head movement and cause the portion of media displayed to reflect the head movement.

Rumor: Apple working on “at least three” updated Mac...

Apple may in fact be en route to designing its own processors, which could replace Intel as the supplier of Mac CPUs.

The company began in 2008 when Apple bought chip manufacturer P.A. Semi. The acquisition led to the design of the A4 processor, popularized in the original iPad released in 2010.

The same year, P.A. Semi’s Senior Vice President of Hardware Technologies Johny Srouji also joined Apple in 2008.

Over the last two years, Apple’s processors have found their way into the AirPods and some Beats products in the form of the W1 wireless chip. The W2 is in the new Apple Watch, with the S-series chip used as a System in a Package (SiP) since the creation of the device.

The iPhone and iPad continue the run of Apple-designed processors, with the 2017 iPhone 8 family and iPhone X sporting the A11 Bionic processor.

Finally, the last two Mac models have featured the T1 chip, which controls functions such as the Touch Bar and Touch ID, while the...

You would have a section for search results, obviously. Plus, there could be sections for saved searches and popular searches.

One section could be a search builder complete with available search terms and boolean operations. Another section could have live filters that come up based on what you're searching for. For example, if I’m looking for a car to buy, filters could come up for new/used, color, type, etc. If I'm searching for some certain parts, filters could come up based on manufacturer, type of material used to make it , etc. (e.g., pipe could be PVC, lead, copper, etc...

Echoing numbers from KGI and Nikkei, the report says Apple will make about 20 million iPhone X this quarter down from an initial target of 40 million.

How to access your files in iCloud Drive

Apple’s iCloud Drive lets you securely access all of your documents from your Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and even a Windows PC. There are various ways you can access the files:

  • Using any supported web browser, you can use iCloud Drive at iCloud.com.
  • On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 9 or later, you can access your files from the iCloud Drive app.
  • On your PC with Windows 7 or later and iCloud for Windows, you can go to iCloud Drive in File Explorer.

When you add your Desktop and Documents to iCloud Drive, all of your files move to iCloud. On your Mac, you can find the files on your Desktop and in your Documents folder in Finder under iCloud. If you add a second Mac Desktop, you'll find those files in the Desktop folder in iCloud Drive. A folder is created with the same name as your second Mac.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple's support...

There May Not Be An iPhone SE 2 After All

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a research note today that casts doubt on rumors about a second-generation iPhone SE launching in the second quarter of 2018. If there is a successor, customers can expect a minor update that amounts to a run-of-the-mill spec boost and no new features like wireless charging or Face ID. The Verge reports: According to Kuo, between the three phones Apple released last year (iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X) and the three phones rumored to be released this fall, the company may not have enough development resources for an SE follow up as a fourth phone for 2018. That said, Kuo also does acknowledge that a basic processor update could still happen, but it seems that SE fans should keep expectations low. The iPhone SE still fills an interesting place in Apple's lineup. It uses the same design as the iPhone 5, which was released in 2012, with the 2015 internals of an iPhone 6s. This means the current model would get a boost in processor speed --...

A review of the Wacom Bamboo Tip Stylus: Compact...

Not everyone needs an Apple Pencil. Apple’s stylus is designed for the iPad Pro, but doesn’t provide any functionality with the iPhone or other models of the iPad. There are a number of manufacturers who manufacture styluses for “the rest of us”, with Wacom being perhaps the best known. Today we’re looking at Wacom’s newest stylus, the $49.95 Bamboo Tip

Wacom Bamboo Tip Stylus. Photo © 2018, Steven Sande

Battery-powered, but not an active stylus

The first thing you’ll notice about the Bamboo Tip is that it requires charging. There’s a tiny Lithium-polymer battery inside that provides up to 20 hours of use on a 2-hour charge. But the Bamboo Tip is not an active stylus — that is, it doesn’t pair with your device, nor does it transfer any information to your device about tip angle, pressure, and so on. 

So why does it need a battery? Well, when you use a...

While some may argue that HomePod will fail in the market due to Siri’s performance compared to other voice assistants, many seem to discount the value of a smart speaker focused on high end sound quality. From the start, Apple has positioned HomePod as audio fidelity first, everything else second.

Based on a recent Reddit thread from r/audiophile, Apple has delivered on its hi-fi promise. Just like Apple has been praised for its displays on iPhones, iPads and Macs for being best-in-class and tuned to look true-to-life, the HomePod appears to be Apple showing off how it can use its audio engineering expertise to push the best performance out of a small music speaker…
