News: Apple posts removal guide for U2’s Songs of...

Following last week’s iTunes exclusive release of U2’s new Songs of Innocence album, the company has now posted a new support article for users looking to remove the album from their iTunes libraries. During Apple’s iPhone event, Apple CEO Tim Cook and U2 frontman Bono jointly announced that the album would be distributed free to all iTunes customers, and took the unprecedented move of not only making the album available for free…

Apple creates tool for removing free U2 album from...

Tim Cook and U2 announced that the band’s new album “Songs of Innocence” would be automatically gifted to Apple’s over 500 million iTunes users last week following the announcement of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but many iTunes users were not happy with seeing music from U2 added to their iTunes libraries (even for free).

While iTunes supports a way to “hide” previous purchases, the complaints and confusion apparently grew loud enough to warrant a dedicated support site for permanently removing the free U2 album from iTunes purchase history. Apple says once you remove the free album from your iTunes...

ExtraBITS for 15 September 2014

Last week showered us with Apple news, and Adam Engst joined The Tech Night Owl Live podcast to make sense of it all, including Apple’s new products and the inglorious end of Macworld’s print edition. Apple CEO Tim Cook had an interview of his own with Charlie Rose, where he shared some juicy tidbits about Apple. Microsoft bought the makers of the hit game Minecraft for a whopping $2.5 billion, putting the future of the game into question. Finally, we have an insider look at Apple’s deal to distribute U2’s latest album and a watch guy’s take on the Apple Watch.

The iPhone 5S (left) next to the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Which size is the one for you?

Megan Geuss

On Monday, Apple confirmed that its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-order numbers broke records for the smartphone line, as they combined to rack up over four million purchases in the first 24 hours they were on sale. As we reported—and Apple's announcement confirmed—many of those pre-orders won't ship to customers until October.

The pre-orders, which started early Friday morning in nine nations, handily surpassed the first-day numbers of the iPhone 5; that model received...

iPhone 6, 6 Plus online pre-orders slip slip to...

It comes down to supply and demand.

And apparently Apple didn’t have a large enough supply to meet pre-order demand.

Per The Mac Observer, Apple’s new iPhone 6 pre-orders have slipped from delivering on September 19th to a seven to ten day shipping delay. The delay means anyone who didn’t manage to pre-order their iPhone 6 before inventory ran out will have to wait about a week before seeing theirs, or stand in line this Friday morning at an Apple Store or one of the company’s retail partners.

The iPhone 6 is Apple’s new 4.7-inch smartphone. It ships with either 16GB, 64GB, or 128GB storage, an Apple-designed...

Per a hearty investigation by AnandTech and AppleInsider, the A8 processor that will be found in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets is likely equipped with Imagination’s six-core PowerVR Series6XT GX6650.

Well, you’re gotta admit: this is an admirable level of pre-order scalping.

Per Computerworld, profiteers hoping to turn a quick buck on the shortage of Apple’s new 5.5-in. iPhone 6 Plus handsets have listed their pre-ordered phones on eBay for as much as US$6,000.

While that was the highest asking price for a new iPhone 6 Plus as of Friday afternoon, there were almost 30 listed on the auction site with “Buy It Now” prices between US$2,000 and US$2,999; over 280 between US$1,000 and US$1,999; and even 5 under US$1,000.

Buy It Now is eBay’s non-auction price that sidesteps bidding. Not all eBay entries for the iPhone 6 Plus included a Buy It Now price.

You’ll notice a few new apps (and less available storage) on your new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus later this week when you fire it up for the first time. According to an internal Apple Retail training document (seen below), iOS 8 compatible iLife and iWork apps will come pre-installed on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

This includes iMovie, GarageBand, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and iTunes U. Owners of the 16GB models of Apple’s newest smartphones will still have access to these apps for free, but they must be manually downloaded from the App Store. It remains unclear as to whether or not GarageBand in-app purchases will also be available at no additional cost.

Just over a year ago, Apple announced that all new iOS devices would be allowed to download these apps.

Apple’s apparently got some admirable leverage where its transaction negotiations are concerned.

Sources familiar with Apple’s banking and credit card arrangements have stated that Apple will get a 0.15 percent cut of every Apple Pay transaction conducted over its NFC-based Apple Pay system.

The new information adds to a previous report that noted Apple will collect fees from banks for customer purchases. What those fees were, exactly, was unknown at the time.

Analyst: Apple on Track to Top 10M iPhone 6 Launch...

Apple confirmed Monday morning iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus first-day pre-orders topped 4 million units, and Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um says that puts the company on track to sell at least 10 million during this weekend's in-store launch. If so, Apple is set to more than double its iPhone 5 launch weekend sales.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple skipped pre-orders last year for the iPhone 5S because inventory was fairly limited. Since pre-orders are back this year, it's likely more inventory is on hand, and based on pre-order weekend figures, that puts the company on track to sell something on the order of 13 million phones this weekend. Some companies can't hit those numbers in a quarter.

Demand for the new iPhones exceeds the initial pre-order supply and while a significant amount will be delivered to customers beginning on Friday and throughout September, many iPhone pre-orders are scheduled to be delivered in October. Additional supply of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available to walk-in customers on Friday, September 19 at 8:00 a.m. local time at Apple retail stores.

Apple seems to be simplifying its range of accessories for its older iPhones ahead of the iPhone 6 launch on Friday. As shown above, Apple has removed every color of iPhone 5s case apart from black from its website. Although it is strange for Apple to reduce its potential for accessory sales (given that it now sells the iPhone 5s for only $99 on contract), it is seemingly focusing on its new range of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus leather and silicone cases instead.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple managed to score another record breaker for iPhone sales with last Friday's pre-orders, and if that's any indication, we'll likely see long lines for early adopter sales this Friday at the company's retail locations. There's a chance we'll see fast inventory sellouts, too, especially for the larger screen iPhone 6 Plus.

Apple Pay may mean the end of physical bank cards...

While we’d all expected plastic bank cards to be replaced by apps eventually, the CEO of mobile banking startup Moven is suggesting that Apple’s backing could mean the end of physical bank cards within 2-3 years.

The additional sweetners here are three fold. Firstly, tokenization will avoid much of the type of breaches we’ve seen at Target and Home Depot because the token is only a one-time use thing. Secondly, the move to tokens and the combination of biometrics, etc allow for the emergence of a ‘cardholder present’ approach to interchange rates that will potentially give mobile payments a competitive merchant rate. Lastly, the US might effectively jump straight from magstripe to mobile, especially if issuers can figure out how to reduce the cost of card replacement by moving straight to mobile SE and tokens …

Hands On: Planetary Annihilation (OS X, Windows,...

In August 2012, a team from Uber Entertainment launched a kickStarter campaign, aiming to raise $900,000 to make a new real-time strategy game called Planetary Annihilation. After two years of work and raising over $2.2 million, as well as other funds via "early access," the game is finally released outside of beta, and gamers can finally try out what backers have been playing for some time during the game's development....

Although it is not surprising to learn that Apple products such as the iPhone and iPad have an above-average adoption rate among medical professionals, new information from a networking site devoted to doctors has shed new insight on the relationship between Apple and the medical field. Doximity, described by Forbes as a "LinkedIn for doctors," reports that of its 300,000 member database, some 85 percent of doctors carry iPhones -- and they tend to upgrade to new models very quickly....

Apple Outrages Users By Automatically Installing U2...

Zanadou writes "Apple may have succeeded at breaking two records at once with the free release of U2's latest album, titled Songs of Innocence, via iTunes. But now, it looks like it's also on track to become one of the worst music publicity stunts of all time. Users who have opted to download new purchases to their iPhones automatically have found the new U2 album sitting on their phones. But even if iTunes users hadn't chosen automatic downloads, Songs of Innocence will still be displayed as an "iTunes in the Cloud" purchase. That means it will still be shown as part of your music library, even if you delete all the tracks. The only way to make the U2 album go away is to go to your Mac or PC and hide all of your "iTunes in the Cloud" purchases, or to use iTunes to manually hide each track from your purchased items list. Other reactions include rapper, Tyler, The Creator, saying that having the new U2 album automatically downloaded on his iPhone was like waking up with a STD.

Chrome For Mac Drops 32-bit Build

jones_supa writes Google has revealed that it's launching the finished 64-bit version of Chrome 39 for OS X this November, which already brought benefits in speed, security and stability on Windows. However at this point the 32-bit build for Mac will cease to exist. Just to make it clear, this decision does not apply to Windows and Linux builds, at least for now. As a side effect, 32-bit NPAPI plugins will not work on Chrome on Mac version 39 onwards. The affected hardware are only the very first x86-based Macs with Intel Core Duo processors. An interesting question remains, whether the open source version of Chrome, which is of course Chromium, could still be compiled for x86-32 on OS X.

The deal is rumored to have cost Apple up to $100 million. Oseary discusses Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine’s close relationship with U2, hints at future Apple collaborations, and talks about retailers’ annoyance at the deal.

"Apple Pay beta"

TheTruthAbout

A couple of months ago I was visiting New York City and had to catch an early flight out of LaGuardia. At 4:30am I hailed a taxi on Houston Street and the driver and I sped to the airport over dark, empty streets.

On the way, I found a Samsung Note 3 in my bag that Review Editor Ron Amadeo had sent me a few weeks before. The thing had a Near-Field Communications (NFC) chip in it, and I had set up my Google Wallet account on it earlier. I also noticed that the taxi I was in had a tap-to-pay terminal displayed in the backseat. I am a consummate morning person, and a rush of new-day adrenaline told me that it was time to make my first Google Wallet purchase in three years—my last...

Sapphire Glass Didn't Pass iPhone Drop Test...

SternisheFan notes reports about why Apple didn't use sapphire glass screens in the latest iPhones as many expected. Sapphire screens were part of the iPhone 6 design until the glass repeatedly cracked during standard drop tests conducted by Apple suppliers. So Apple abandoned its sapphire plans before the iPhone 6 product launch September 9. VentureBeat has learned that recent supplier channel checks by an IDC analyst yielded several reports of the sapphire failures and Apple's decision against using the glass material. As we heard on Tuesday in Cupertino, both the iPhone 6 and the larger iPhone 6 Plus will ship with screens made of "ion-strengthened" glass. This was apparently Apple's second choice. IDC analyst Danielle Levitas says it isn't clear when exactly the drop-test failures took place, or when Apple abandoned plans for sapphire-screened iPhones. She says the poor drop-test results, combined with the relative high cost of sapphire glass, could have made plans to ship...

∞ Tim Cook’s Charlie Rose interview

[VIDEO] A few days ago, fresh from the iPhone 6, Apple Watch, Apple Pay launch, Tim Cook appeared on The Charlie Rose Show. The show edited and released the first half of that interview Friday night. The complete video is embedded below, courtesy of Hulu.

I love Charlie Rose’s interview technique. He’s laid back, draws his subjects in, let’s them unburden themselves. He has a collection of issues he wants to explore, but does so so softly, you might not realize he’s even steering.

There’s a lot to enjoy here. Charlie gets hands on with the new iPhones and a look at the Apple Watch on Tim’s wrist. Interestingly, Tim wore his watch, but controlled it himself, saying “I may have some things on here that you shouldn’t see just yet.”

Charlie talks IBM partnership, Beats acquisition, product...
