Zac Hall, writing for 9to5mac:

Apple appears to be taking its new Apple News app to the place that news often breaks (then spreads), Twitter. The Twitter handle @applenews has been dressed for the job for several months now although it’s been inactive before today and it isn’t yet marked “verified” by Twitter.

That’s now changed.

Shopping analytics giant Kantar Worldpanel reports that Apple’s smartphone has experienced its first fall in market share in urban China since 2014.

WhatsApp turns on end-to-end encryption

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has strengthened the encryption of its widely used instant messaging app, a development that in theory makes it harder for law enforcement to gain access to communications.

WhatsApp’s founders said Tuesday that the application now implements end-to-end encryption, which means only authorized users can decrypt messages.

“The idea is simple: when you send a message, the only person who can read it is the person or group chat that you send that message to,” Jan Koum and Brian Acton wrote in a blog post. “No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us.”

Here at Ars, one of the things we like to focus on in reviews is new technology. There are a few reasons: new stuff draws readers, new stuff is fast and shiny, and new stuff points the way to where technology is headed.

The thing about the iPhone SE is that there’s basically nothing that’s new about it. It’s a four-year-old phone design filled with six-month-old parts, and it’s the rare product that amounts to exactly the sum of its parts. You could almost write a review of it without laying hands on it.

Limelight Networks, Inc., which specializes in digital content delivery, today unveiled the results of its annual State of Digital Downloads report, the latest in its studies of consumer perceptions and behaviors around digital content. The study found nearly half (45%) of consumers are more likely to download digital content of all types than they were a year ago. 

In just the past few months the smartphone has displaced the personal computer as the dominant device for the download and consumption of content. More users downloaded content onto Android-based smartphones (62%), while Apple’s iPad (used by 43%), was nearly tied with Android tablets (45%). As such, the Google Play store led the way as the prevalent destination...

Many were skeptical that the work iPhone at the centre of the San Bernardino controversy would prove in any way useful to the FBI given that the shooters left it untouched while destroying their personal phones, and so far that skepticism seems justified. Despite having had access to all the data on the phone for more than a week, the FBI has apparently not yet found anything of value.

Early this morning, we told you about a new iPhone 6s passcode bypass vulnerability that allowed handlers to access photos and contact details without needing to verify with a passcode or Touch ID. The Lock screen vulnerability was made possible by Siri, and let users bypass the security provided by the Lock screen passcode and/or Touch ID.

If there’s a positive spin to put on such a vulnerability, it’s that fixes can be implemented server side without the need for an iOS update. Apple today has fixed the passcode bypass method by forcing Siri to request your Lock screen passcode whenever a user tries to search Twitter via Siri while at a secured Lock screen more…

It has a 13.3-inch Gorilla glass display, and stereo speakers from Bang & Olufsen. The new line "carries some of the thin design and high-end finishing touches that HP introduced in its EliteBook Folio," said tech analyst Charles King.

That would mean that it's slimmer than the 12-inch MacBook (0.52), MacBook Air (0.68 inches) and Dell XPS 13 (0.59 inches) at their thickest points. It's also thinner than the 0.52-inch Razer Blade Stealth. The new notebook is equipped with an advertised nine-hour battery life, 13-inch HD 1920 x 1080 resolution display, and sixth generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. The Spectre will be available for pre-order on April 25 for $1,169.99 before it hits Best Buy stores on May 22 for $1,249.99.

Since its inception, Twitter has been a very public forum. But now, Twitter wants to be a player in private messages.

On Tuesday, Twitter began rolling out a new Message button that you will see underneath each Tweet on your Timeline, right next to the Retweet and heart icons. Tapping on the Message button launches a Direct Message to share that Tweet privately with another Twitter user. The new feature will be available to both iOS and Android users by updating the Twitter app.

According to Twitter product manager Somas Thyagaraja, this new messaging button stemmed from user-feedback after the number of Twitter DMs grew by 60 percent in 2015. In just the latter half of last year, the number of DMs with Tweets shared privately grew even more, by 200 percent.

Fred Anderson, former Apple chief financial officer, and Avie Tevanian, former Apple senior vice president of Software Engineering, are teaming up in a new venture capital fund dubbed NextEquity, reports Bloomberg.

NextEquity is a play on NeXT, the company Jobs started after he was ousted from Apple in 1985. Tevanian said the Menlo Park, California, firm has already made a few investments but declined to name them. The goal is to back tech start-ups.

Apple might bake Force Touch into Magic Mouse 3

Apple’s Magic Mouse 2 debuted last year with just one noticeable difference over its predecessor: a weirdly placed Lightning port for recharging. Otherwise, there’s not a whole lot of magic going on. But that could change in the next version of the mouse if a patent just granted to Apple is any indication.

The patent, first spotted by Patently Apple, covers a Magic Mouse with Force Touch sensors that would add a slew of new functions without any extra effort on your part. The sensors would recognize different levels of clicks—a normal one and a deeper one that would unlock features, like the Apple Watch does.

As Gizmodo notes, users will want to keep their smartphones plugged in, because the BB-8 companion app must run throughout the movie and listen for audio cues via the phone’s microphone.

This means if WhatsApp is subpoenaed by government for information, WhatsApp will not be able to help them as it simply cannot help them.

Next, there's a 3.5mm jack for headphones or speakers, an HDMI output for connecting your iPad or iPhone to any monitor, a pair of USB ports, and even an Ethernet connection.

The complaint points to clauses in contracts Apple has with mobile operators in the country that the DGCCRF, a governing body under the Ministry of Finance, claims are illegal and essentially provide Apple with too much power over the carriers.

The DGCCRF outlined 10 clauses in Apple’s contracts specifically that it wants the company to remove. The clauses relate to stipulations Apple enforces including the amount of product carriers must order, advertising requirements, mobile plans and other guidelines the carriers must follow in order to sell iPhones.

If you’re running iOS 9.3.1 and gave Siri access to your Twitter information as well as yourContacts or Photos, this is something worth looking into.

The YouTube video, uploaded by Jose Rodriguez, depicts a user performing a Siri search followed by a series of relatively simple steps, one of which involves 3D Touch, limiting the exploit to iPhone 6s and 6s Plus devices.

The procedure starts by invoking Siri on the locked phone by holding the home button or using the “Hey, Siri” function, and then asking the personal assistant to...

Refurbished and old models of iPhones only way for...

Apple’s strategy to sell refurbished and older models of its iPhone in the Indian market may be the only way the company can sell its phones in volumes in the country.

Indian users are very price-sensitive and the market for the high-end phones sold by Apple cannot be large, said Kiranjeet Kaur, research manager at IDC Asia-Pacific.

The Chinese experience cannot be replicated in India because per capita incomes are not very high in the country, Kaur said. Import taxes on smartphones are also high and the U.S. dollar has been strengthening against the Indian rupee.

Apple has invested in distribution channels in more cities in the country, and started selling old models of its phones. Still, it sold less than 1 million phones for a 3 percent share of the Indian smartphone market in the fourth quarter, Kaur said.

Twitter signs deal to stream Thursday night NFL games

Twitter just cemented its reputation as the social network for sports fans. Twitter just won the rights to stream 10 Thursday night football games for the 2016-2017 NFL season with originating broadcasts from CBS and NBC. The games will also be simulcast on the NFL Network, which the league calls a “tri-cast” distribution model that covers broadcast TV, cable, and online.

The broadcasts will be free and won’t require cable authentication or a Twitter account. The games will be only half the show, however. Twitter also plans to continue distributing NFL highlights as it does now, and there will be pre-game Periscope broadcasts from individual players and teams.

Apple’s only retail store in Iowa is getting a major...

The Apple Store at Jordan Creek Town Center in West Des Moines, Iowa, is getting a major makeover,” according to The Des Moines Register. It’s Apple’s only retail store in the state.

Apple is taking over the former Brookstone space to its west, and the Clarks shoe store to the east. The expansion will nearly triple the size of the often crowded store. Apple will be temporarily housed in a space across from the construction in a storefront formerly occupied by New York & Company, which recently closed, Randy Tennison, general manager of the mall, told the Register.

Construction on the new Apple Store will take about five months, he added.A building permit issued by West Des Moines listed the value of the construction project at $3 million. The new store will be about 7,160 square feet. There's no word yet on whether...

Facebook takes a guess at what's in pictures to...

With images an ever-growing proportion of what we share on social networks, Facebook fears that users with visual impairments may be missing out.

Beginning Tuesday, the company is tweaking its timelines so that users of screen readers can hear not just the text on a page, but also a brief description of what any images may contain. Until now, they’ve heard only the name of the person who posted the photo.

To describe the images, Facebook built a computer vision system with a neural network trained to recognize a number of concepts, including places and the presence of people and objects. It analyzes each image for the presence of different elements, and then composes a short sentence describing it that is included in the webpage as the “alt” text of the image.

A new lawsuit filed against gyroscope and accelerometer supplier for Apple, InvenSense, accuses the company of failing to tell investors about the concessions it made to secure a recent deal.

"Instead of revealing the true condition of the company and its prospects, defendants hid those facts from investors and chose to issue strong guidance and paint a picture of a bright future with a new mega-customer," the complai...

Sales of Macs look to be way up, iOS devices are selling much better in a key foreign market, and Apple's suppliers are flourishing -- all signs that point to better-than-expected quarter....
