Apple Is Designing iPhones, iPads That Would Drop...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Wall Street Journal (Warning: source may be paywalled; alternative source): Apple, locked in an intensifying legal fight with Qualcomm, is designing iPhones and iPads for next year that would jettison the chipmaker's components, according to people familiar with the matter. Apple is considering building the devices only with modem chips from Intel and possibly MediaTek because San Diego, Calif.-based Qualcomm has withheld software critical to testing its chips in iPhone and iPad prototypes, according to one of the people. Apple's planned move for next year involve the modem chips that handle communications between wireless devices and cellular networks. Qualcomm is by far the biggest supplier of such chips for the current wireless standard. The Apple plans indicate the battle with Qualcomm could spill beyond the courtroom feud over patents into another important Qualcomm business where it has the potential to send ripples through the...

It offers Mac users a collection of faceless clocks that sit quietly in the background on their Desktop. LucidTime offers three highly customizable clocks, each offering their own individually method of presenting the time of day.

Apple patent is for electronic devices with...

Future iOS and watchOS devices could sport advanced environmental sensors, as evidenced by a newly granted Apple patent (number 9,804,003). These could include a temperature sensor, a pressure sensor, a humidity sensor, a gas sensor, or other sensors or combinations of sensors for sensing attributes of the environment surrounding the device. 

The sensor components may be mounted within an enclosure that at least partially surrounds the sensor components. The enclosure may have an opening that allows sound and/or other environmental materials such as air to enter the enclosure and interact with the sensor components.

The sensors could be used in a variety of ways. An iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch could alert you when smoke or carbon dioxide is detected, posing a safety issue. Ambient pressure measurements may be used to adjust the way in which microphone measurements are made (e.g., to accommodate audio characteristics that change with changes in altitude).

Apple may ditch Qualcomm components in 2018 iPhones...

Due to its ongoing legal dispute with Qualcomm, Apple is designing iPhones and iPads for next year that would jettison the chipmaker's components, sources tell The Wall Street Journal.

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, the article adds. In January, Apple filed a lawsuit again Qualcomm, the world’s dominant supplier of baseband processors, alleging the chip supplier demanded unfair terms for its technology. The same month, the Federal Trade Commission filed a complaint in federal district court charging Qualcomm with using anticompetitive tactics to maintain...

iPhone X first impressions round-up: ‘good but not...

We talked yesterday about how Apple is this year taking a different approach to pre-sale reviews of its flagship iPhone. Instead of giving all publications and sites the same embargo date, so that all the reviews hit the net at once, it’s layering them, with different people allowed to post different pieces at different times.

We saw some written pieces and several hands-on videos by YouTubers, and we’re today seeing some more first impressions pieces by writers who were apparently given their iPhone X models just one day ahead of their embargo time …

How to share passwords in iOS 11

iOS 11 has a quick way to share your password (though you should, of course, do this with care). When someone is using the same Wi-Fi network your phone is on, you'll get a notification. 

By tapping "send password," they can get on the network without having to manually enter complicated passwords. To make this work, both users need devices running iOS 11 with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on.

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

Notable apps and app updates for Oct. 31, 2017

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

macOS Apps/Updates

Zevrix Solutions has announced InPreflight Pro 2.11.28, a compatibility update to its document preparation solution for Adobe InDesign. 

It’s an all-in-one solution to check InDesign documents for errors, automatically collect multiple files for output and ship them to final destination. The new version makes InPreflight compatible with the 2018 release of InDesign CC featured as part of Adobe Creative Cloud.

InPreflight Pro can be purchased from the Zevrix website for $99.95; there’s a Studio version for $39.95. A demo is available for download. The update is free for licensed users of version 2, and $50 from earlier versions. InPreflight...

Apple allows YouTube personalities early access to...

Because, as mentioned before, you literally can’t outrun social media, Apple recently invited a number of YouTube channels to try out the highly-anticipated device at a nondescript building in New York City.

The YouTubers tested out the assorted functions of the iPhone X including the camera, wireless charging, Animoji, Face ID and others, then posted their findings online.

So far, the reviews seem to be largely positive, with users citing the A11 processor, fun with Animoji, minor frustrations with the new interface and the learning curve of not having a Touch ID button on this model

iPhone X pre-orders began on Friday, with shipping estimates now at five to six weeks for orders placed today. The device launches November 3rd, with limited in-store availability for walk-in customers on a first come, first served basis.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

∞ First Look: iPhone X

I’ve had my iPhone X from Apple for less than a day, so it would be irresponsible of me to call this a review—instead I’ll give you my first impressions of a few of the main features, and then follow-up with more details later this week or next.

The “Notch”

Let’s get this out of the way right now. There will be so much written about the notch at the top of the iPhone X, we’ll all be sick of it. I said from the time I attended the iPhone launch event that the notch didn’t really bother me—it still doesn’t.

If you focus on the notch, then sure, you will see and it could even bother you. However, I focus on what’s on the screen, not on the notch. Perhaps that’s why it doesn’t bother me—I don’t really know it’s there.

It’s not like the notch is in the way of what you’re trying to do on the iPhone. It’s not stuck in the middle of the display, so for me, it doesn’t factor into my usage of the device.

We could talk all day about the aesthetics of the...

Initial iPhone X packaging, unboxing pictures and...

You can’t beat the speed of social media.

Although the iPhone X has yet to arrive anywhere in the world, Twitter user Benjamin Geskin began shooting images and videos of the new handset to the Internet over the weekend. The resulting images include the iPhone X in its retail handset as well as shared images of the iPhone X stacked and ready to ship.

Unlike the iPhone 8’s rear-focus cover art, the iPhone X packaging depicts the smartphone’s large OLED display.

Fulfilling the stuff that tech fans crave, Instagram user abraham950 posted a brief unboxing video of the iPhone X. The video shows that the first thing you see when you open the box is Apple’s “Designed by Apple in California” information packet, and below that sits the iPhone X itself.

Other iPhone X unboxing videos have begun to surface online, although it’s safe to say that they’ll be more in depth once the iPhone X hits the shelves and arrives on doorsteps come Friday, November 3rd.

Battery technology has come a long way since we saw the first external battery packs for iPhones back in 2007.

Auction of Steve Jobs’ 2000 BMW Z8


While not known to be a car enthusiast per se, Steve Jobs did have a penchant for German automobiles and design, owning BMW motorcycles, as well as Mercedes-Benz SLs. According to legend, Jobs was convinced to buy the Z8 by Larry Ellison the iconoclastic CEO of Oracle, who enthused to Jobs that the car was a paragon of modern automotive engineering and ergonomics, reflective of Steve’s own products and psyche.

The car comes with a plethora of important accessories, including its proper hardtop and hardtop stand, car cover, owner’s and service manuals, service records, two keys, navigation CDs, and – most significantly, its original BMW-branded Motorola flip-phone. Interestingly enough, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Jobs was known to have hated the Motorola phone.

Personally, I’d rather have Jobs’ BMW

YouTube TV coming to the Apple TV in ‘coming weeks’

YouTube TV will a get a native Apple TV app within "coming weeks,” according to The Verge. It will also be rolling out on the Roku device and smart TVs from Samsung, Sony, and LG, the article adds. 

“When we launched the service, we positioned it as a mobile-first product. A lot of that was about breaking the association with the DVR and set-top box, this hardware in the living room you have to rent that gets outdated really quickly. We were trying to get people to grok that this is TV that lives on your phone, a cloud DVR, all of the above,” Christian Oestlien, product management director at YouTube TV, told The Verge. “What we saw in practice was that the majority of our watch time was in the living room, through Cast. And the number one request we get from consumers is more options, native options, for the living room.”

I want a space grey ‘non-Pro’ iMac

As noted by 9to5Mac, Apple took an iMac Pro (pictured), due for release in December, to the Final Cut Pro X Creative Summit to demo its power (along with Final Cut Pro 10.4) to the professional video editors attending the conference. It’s is the only Mac all-in-one available in space grey, though I hope that changes next year.

The upcoming iMac Pro — with its 27-inch Retina 5K display, next generation Intel Xeon processors up to 18 cores, up to 22 Teraflops of graphics computation, up to 16GB of VRAM, up to 128GB of memory, built-in Ethernet, and support for one billion colors — is the most powerful Mac ever made. Unfortunately, since pricing starts at $4,999, I can’t afford it.

So I’m hoping that the 2018 non-Pro iMacs (which are plenty “pro” enough for me) will be available in space gray, along with similarly hued Magic Keyboards and Magic Trackpads. In...

External Link: How a Doctor Diagnosed His Own Cancer...

An upcoming iPhone-enabled device by Butterfly Network could have a considerable impact in healthcare. The $1,999 Butterfly IQ, an ultrasound machine the size of an electric shaver, costs a fraction the price of traditional ultrasound machines, and one doctor has already used it to catch his own cancer. Vascular surgeon John Martin, chief medical officer for Butterfly Network, was testing the device when he spotted a mass that turned out to be a squamous-cell cancer on his throat. The Butterfly IQ could eventually be used by first responders and even patients in their own homes, and by next year, the company believes, “its software will let users automatically calculate how much blood a heart is pumping, or detect problems like aortic aneurisms.”

External Link: Even iPhone X Repairs Are Expensive

If you think the $999 sticker price of the base model iPhone X is high, wait till you see how much repairs cost! If you don’t have AppleCare+, a screen replacement will run you $279; by comparison, an iPhone 8 screen replacement is just $169. All other out-of-warranty repairs will cost $549. These prices might encourage you to get AppleCare+, which is likely not a bad idea given how much new hardware is in the iPhone X, but it’s not cheap either at $199, as compared to $129 for the iPhone 8 or $149 for the iPhone 8 Plus. If you have AppleCare+, the first two iPhone X screen repairs cost only $29 each.

First real-world iPhone X impressions: Not quite a...

While the rest of the world has a few days (or, gulp, weeks) to wait for the new iPhone X, Apple has bestowed review units on a few bloggers and vloggers, and their first thoughts have arrived. And surprise, surprise, they’re very positive.

The impact on you at home: With a phone like iPhone X, first impressions matter, and Apple clearly wants everyone to know just how cool its new phone really is. The hand-picked bloggers and vloggers here are a departure from the usual select-group of journalists, so Apple is targeting a very different audience with these first impressions. When the reviews land later this week we’ll have a more technical understanding of its pros and cons, but for now, iPhone X looks like a winner and the first step toward the next smartphone revolution.

The first first impression of the iPhone X

Steven Levy, Wired:

I’ve had this phone since last Tuesday. Apple had given me this early peek in part because I was one of the first pre-release reviewers of the original iPhone. Given that history, we all thought it would be interesting to get my impressions of what the company clearly believes is the next milestone in a journey that has pretty much altered our relationship with technology. Sure, with every single iteration of the iPhone, Apple has claimed that it’s the best one the company has ever made. But for this anniversary edition—coming at a time when critics are griping that the company had tumbled into an innovation trough— they’re pushing for something higher. Tim Cook calls the iPhone X “the future of the smartphone.”

This is a great read, all the way through. I love the open, with Steven choosing what feature to show people who see his phone, ask what it can do. Lovely writing, makes me want an iPhone X, which is exactly what this pitch is supposed to...

Apple’s iPhone grows by 40% after six consecutive...

Chinese smartphone shipments registered another quarter of decline as the market contracted 5% in the third quarter of  017 to 119 million units, according to Canalys. Apple’s declining streak in China has come to an end, as shipments grew 40% from eight million in quarter three 2016 to about 11 million this quarter. 

This makes it the iPhone’s best performance in China in the last eight quarters, where its growth has slowed considerably since the launch of the iPhone 6s, notes the research group. The mix of the iPhone 8 series at launch is also higher than the corresponding mix of the iPhone 7 series at launch last year. Despite being touted as widely expensive, excitement for the launch of the iPhone X is building in China. 

“While the iPhone X launches this week, its pricing structure and supply are inhibiting. The iPhone X will enjoy a healthy grey market status, but its popularity is unlikely to help Apple in...

Forget the iPhone X, Apple’s best product is...

John Patrick Pullen, Time:

There’s this photo of my kids in the bath that, well, I’d rather not tell you about. I mean, it’s incredibly cute and I’d love to show it to you, but I’m also a private person, so it wouldn’t be right to go into details. But I will say this: though it’s one of my favorite possessions, this picture doesn’t physically exist.


As precious as this image is, I don’t have it stored on a flash drive attached to my keychain, or in some other ultra-safe place. Instead, it’s housed on a server in some unknown probably dank and sunless location. That’s no casual decision. I’ve put considerable time and thought into how I store my photos in general, as well as how I back up my information overall. Despite all the bottomless storage features offered by tech giants like Google and Amazon, I default to keeping my most valuable data with Apple. Why I chose this matters, so let’s talk about it.

Spot on. Apple’s commitment to privacy is a...

Doctor diagnosed his own cancer with iPhone...

Technology Review:

Earlier this year, vascular surgeon John Martin was testing a pocket-sized ultrasound device developed by Butterfly Network, a startup based in Guilford, Connecticut, that he’d just joined as chief medical officer.

He’d been having an uncomfortable feeling of thickness on his throat. So he oozed out some gel and ran the probe, which is the size and shape of an electric razor, along his neck.

On his smartphone, to which the device is connected, black-and gray images quickly appeared. Martin is not a cancer specialist. But he knew that the dark, three-centimeter mass he saw did not belong there. “I was enough of a doctor to know I was in trouble,” he says. It was squamous-cell cancer.

How many stories have we seen where an Apple Watch notifies someone of an abnormal heart rhythm? That’s just the start.

The iPhone, add-on devices like this ultrasound unit, Apple Watch and, of course, HealthKit, are changing the health care...

Apple grows by 40% after six consecutive quarters of...


Apple’s declining streak in China has come to an end, as shipments grew 40% from 8 million in Q3 2016 to about 11 million this quarter. This makes it Apple’s best performance in China in the last eight quarters, where its growth has slowed considerably since the launch of the iPhone 6S. The mix of the iPhone 8 series at launch is also higher than the corresponding mix of the iPhone 7 series at launch last year.


“Apple’s growth this quarter is only temporary. The high sell-in caters to the pent-up demand of iPhone upgraders in the absence of the iPhone X. Price cuts on earlier models after announcing the iPhone 8 have also helped. However, Apple is unlikely to sustain this growth in Q4,” said Canalys Research Analyst Mo Jia.


Despite being touted as widely expensive, excitement for the launch of the iPhone X is building in China.

Good info.

Apple shares up on reports of strong iPhone X sales

Apple shares are up 0.66% premarket after analyst reports show high iPhone X demand after preorders started on Friday. The first units are due to arrive this Friday, Nov. 3.

Drexel Hamilton analyst Brian White writes that he’s “encouraged that shipping lead times have held steady at 5-6 weeks because these pre-orders can be recognized as shipments in the December quarter.” The iPhone X comes in 64GB and 256GB models with pricing starting at $999.

Rumor: Apple more likely to meet iPhone X demand in...

Per a new investor note released recently by the mighty Apple guru that is Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, Apple seems unlikely to repeat the supply and production struggles it experienced with the iPhone X with the new 2018 iPhone models.

Kuo has stated that shipments of the 2018 iPhone models will arrive on time and in stable supply during late Q3 of 2018. He says there will be “no major spec upgrade” of the TrueDepth camera that helps power the Face ID biometric technology, with Apple using the same dot projector and infrared camera.

“We believe the supply of both components are now stable, leaving no need to switch to other solutions,” Kuo writes.

Kuo’s note stands in some contradiction to other market analysts who have stated that the 2018 model iPhone will adopt a new “hybrid lens (glass and plastics).” Kuo has stated that doing this would cause more supply chain problems and he believes the 2018 iPhone models “have to hit the market on time.”

Apple announces $279 price for non-AppleCare+ iPhone...

It’s best not to drop your brand new iPhone X.

Or, if you do, make sure it has an AppleCare+ plan covering it.

Apple has announced that a repair for the iPhone X screen will retail for $279 and $99 for any other damage up to two instances without an AppleCare+ plan.

The screen features full edge-to-edge OLED functionality topped by a TrueDetect camera system that enables a brand-new Face ID unlocking system and Animoji features.

Pre-orders for the new handset began on October 27th with shipping times already slipping to December for most models.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

The 10 best horror games for the Mac

By Ric Molina

Halloween is tomorrow. While I was looking for killer horror games myself, I realized one thing: the best horror games support macOS.

Which means you won’t have a problem finding something right up your alley. Do you prefer first-person, top-down, story driven or action-packed games? No problem, these 10 games cover most genres and play styles. I picked the games by considering ones that:

  • Are part of the horror genre.
  • Are considered scary because of the story, atmosphere, and/or graphics.
  • Support macOS, without the need of wrappers or virtualization.

And to further help you chose a game just right for you, I considered these questions as well:

  • How expensive are these games?
  • Are these games demanding? Can my Mac play it?

With that in mind by top 10 horror games for the Mac are: Alien: Isolation; Bioshock Remastered, SOMA, Layers of Fear, Metro: Last Night,...

The company says that Q3 sales, which include the iPhone 8, hits 11 million, up from 8M in the same quarter last year. However, warns the firm, that growth could be short-lived despite excitement about the iPhone X

Original iPhone reviewer Steven Levy gets early...

Whilst we are waiting for the onslaught of iPhone X reviews to drop, Steven Levy (now writing for Wired) has published his hands-on with the device, having been given a review unit last Tuesday. Levy was one of the four journalists who reviewed the original iPhone in 2007, so Apple decided to give him the opportunity to publish first impressions with the ‘milestone’ iPhone X.

Levy was impressed by the ‘Super Retina’ 5.8-inch OLED display in the body of a phone only slightly larger than a 4.7-inch iPhone 8. He also quickly adapted to the new swipe gestures that replace the home button, but hit some frictions with Face ID.
