How much will the new iPhone cost?

Horace Dediu:

The evidence suggests that Apple prefers to keep average pricing for all products constant. Individual variants are priced so that, as the category matures, the changing mix leads to consistency in price ownership.

Thus the iPhone can be seen as controlling the $650 point, the Mac $1200, the iPod $200 and the iPad $450. This pricing signals the product’s value and the value of the brand.

The signaling is not just to buyers but also to competitors. Ownership of price forces competitors to occupy adjacent brackets.

And:

The overall pattern looks like a staircase with a widening price range where the lowest price remains constant and the upper price rises every three years by $100.

The “floor” of the range is a consistent $400 while the “ceiling” has expanded from $700 to about $950.

This year’s ceiling is due for the fourth leg up and if the pattern persists, we should expect it to reach $1100.

Apple requests tax-breaks for suppliers as it seeks...

Apple has asked the Indian government to extend the tax breaks it has been granted for its own operations to its suppliers. This would enable the company to move from mere iPhone assembly in India – with the actual parts still made in China – to more of a true manufacturing operation.

We described recently how Apple relies on an entire network of suppliers centred around the Chinese city of Shenzhen. Tim Cook’s discussions with Indian prime minister Narendra Modi have extended to establishing a kind of Little Shenzhen within India …

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,719,797) for a voice and touch user interface for CarPlay. Compatible with iPhone 5 and later models, CarPlay provides a simplified way to use your iPhone interface on a car’s touch screen, giving users access to Siri voice controls, as well as Apple Maps, Apple Music, Phone, Messages, and a variety of third party apps.

The invention involves an electronic device capable of touch input through a touch-sensitive surface and/or voice input through a microphone. Apple says the electronic device may be used in an automobile. For example, some or all of the gadget may be mounted in a CarPlay dashboard for use while driving. 

The system could provide informational content, entertainment content, navigation, and communication features in such a manner that user interaction may be minimized, thus providing a safe driving experience, according to Apple. This can be accomplished by performing tasks and presenting content automatically,...

Apple and Google have removed hundreds of trading apps from their online stores after an intervention by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) to crack down on online fraud, according to The Independent.

The ASIC — an independent Australian government body that acts as Australia's corporate regulator — says it conducted a sweeping review of mobile app stores focusing on those associated with so-called binary options trading. It says that the review highlighted over 330 apps that were offered by entities and individuals that appeared to be unlicensed. A total of 63% of those examined were offered by so-called binary option issuers and facilitated trading, according to the Independent.

FSC certifies 320,000 acres of working forest that...

Apple says the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) has certified approximately 320,000 acres of working forest that the company supports in China, enough for all its product packaging.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an international non-profit NGO established in 1993, promotes responsible management of the world's forests with standards on forest products, along with certifying and labeling them as eco-friendly.

According to an email from Apple to the Xinhua news source, two-thirds of the forest is owned and managed by Maoyuan Forestry, a private company in central China's Hunan Province. The rest is owned and managed by state-owned Qinlian Forestry Company in southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The land includes semi-natural forests and forest plantations.

Apple launched its forestry program in 2015, aiming to have over one million acres of...

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for both macOS and iOS was down last month.

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 6.02% of the global market share in July, down from from 6.12% percent in June (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 91.45% as of July.

Developers uncover hints as to HomePod’s RAM,...

Deep within Apple’s firmware update for the upcoming HomePod, some of the critical specs have been found.

Developer Steve Troughton-Smith shared last week that HomePod will run a full iOS stack and uses a shell app called SoundBoard. He also mentioned more specifics about the display/touch surface stating “The center part of the HomePod surface appears to be an LED matrix and not just big LEDs—could perhaps display shapes/symbols.”

Troughton-Smith’s retweet of another developer’s findings noted that HomePod’s display will come in at 272 x 340 and the smart speaker will feature 1GB RAM. Even if it doesn’t sound like much in this day and age, this will probably be plenty for the device’s feature set.

The HomePod is due out later this year and will compete with other smart speaker systems, such as those made by Amazon and Google.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

Is the iPhone 'Years' Ahead of Android In...

Former Google senior vice president of Social, Vic Gundotra, said that Android phones are years behind the iPhone when it comes to photography. In a Facebook post, Gundotra said: "The end of the DSLR for most people has already arrived. I left my professional camera at home and took these shots at dinner with my iPhone 7 using computational photography (portrait mode as Apple calls it). Hard not to call these results (in a restaurant, taken on a mobile phone with no flash) stunning. Great job Apple." 9to5Mac reports: In response to a comment suggesting that the Samsung S8 camera was even better, Business Insider spotted that Gundotra disagreed. He said that not only was Apple way ahead of Samsung, but Android was to blame. From Gundotra's Facebook post: "I would never use an Android phone for photos! Here is the problem: It's Android. Android is an open source (mostly) operating system that has to be neutral to all parties. This sounds good until you get into the details. Ever...

Microsoft's Word Flow keyboard for the iPhone had one unique feature when it launched more than a year ago: a one-handed mode that could be used with either your left or right thumb. Now, according to a support note spotted by Windows Central, it appears Microsoft is consolidating and removing the keyboard from the App Store, encouraging users to download SwiftKey instead. The Verge reports: Microsoft has tested out a number of iOS keyboards, and it now appears the company is focusing solely on SwiftKey after acquiring the app last year. We haven't seen any major additions to SwitftKey since Microsoft acquired it, apart from a separate Swiftmoji emoji predictor in July last year. Microsoft's SwiftKey keyboard now competes against the likes of Google's Gboard keyboard and various other iOS and Android keyboards. Have you been using Word Flow on your iPhone? If so, what has your experience been with the application? Do you plan on switching to Gboard or another third-party keyboard...

Apple expands the tester limits in TestFlight

Apple has expanded the tester limits in TestFlight, its free iOS app testing platform that’s part of iTunes Connect. Developers can now invite up to 10,000 users to beta test their apps before they’re released on the App Store. 

TestFlight lets developers distribute and test multiple builds at the same time, so testers can choose from a number of builds to test. Developers can create groups of TestFlight users, and each group can test a different build. ‘

iTunes Connect is a suite of web-based tools for managing content sold on the iTunes Store, iBookStore, and the App Store for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch. Members of the Apple Developer Program can use this tool to manage apps, agreements, tax and banking information, sales reports, and more.

According to De Telegraaf — as noted by AppleInsider — police in the Netherlands have arrested five Romanian thieves suspected of stealing iPhones worth 500,000 euros (about $590,000).

Like something out of a Fast and Furious flick, the gang purportedly used a high-risk technique of breaking into the back door of delivery trucks while they were still rolling down the highway.

One gang member would drive the gang’s van behind the targeted vehicle, while another climbed through the sunroof of the van and stood on the hood, which was fitted with an anti-slip mat. With a third holding them still, the member on the hood would break the rear doors of the truck before entering the truck...

Siri’s job

Ben Bajarin:

The key behavior usages between both assistants is not a surprise since Google is, and will always be, better than Siri at searching the web. Google’s mission is to organize the world’s data and they will do that better than anyone. Therefore their AI agent will always be the best at search. The challenge we have today with consumer sentiment around Siri is with its weakness for general Internet search. If consumers do this regularly and want to use a voice assistant for searching and general information queries, Siri is not going to beat Google. Apple’s challenge is to help consumers understand the jobs where Siri is best.

I agree with Ben with everything in this article. My problem is that I tried to use Siri to schedule appointments and do some of the life duties that it’s supposedly so good at. The problem is, it didn’t work that well, and when something doesn’t work well, I stop using it. That’s what happened with Siri for me.

This case is not only a protective cover for your iPad Pro, but also acts as a stand for watching movies, typing on the screen, or engaging in FaceTime conversations.

Design

Available in black or "Sakura Pink", the VersaCover features a microfiber interior and a textured polyurethane exterior -- that's the origami-like folding stand portion that covers your screen. The back side is a clear polycarbonate that protects the back of the iPad Pro while displaying the back of the device.

The iPad Pro is held securely in a polycarbonate frame with ports for the speakers, Lightning cable, and headphone...

Apple is About To Do Something Their Programmers...

Last week, The Wall Street Journal had a big feature on Apple Campus, the big new beautiful office the company has spent north of $5 billion on. The profile, in which the reporter interviewed Apple's design chief Jony Ive, also mentioned about an open space where all the programmers would sit and work. Ever since the profile came out, several people have expressed their concerns about the work environment for the developers. American entrepreneur and technologist Anil Dash writes: [...] There have been countless academic studies confirming the same result: Workers in open plan offices are frustrated, distracted and generally unhappy. That's not to say there's no place for open plan in an offices -- there can be great opportunities to collaborate and connect. For teams like marketing or communications or sales, sharing a space might make a lot of sense. But for tasks that require being in a state of flow? The science is settled. The answer is clear. The door is closed on the subject...

Tips from Amped Wireless on preparing Wi-Fi networks...

Amped Wireless RTA2600-R2 Athena Router

We liked these tips from Amped Wireless VP of Networking Jason Owen so much that we thought we'd pass them along to Apple World Today readers. Enjoy!

It is estimated by research firm IHS that the IoT market will grow from an installed base of 15.4 billion devices in 2015 to 30.7 billion devices in 2020 and 75.4 billion in 2025. Our washing machines, coffee pots, thermostats, lights, probably even the toilet and the kitchen sink will all be hooked up to our home Wi-Fi networks. While this will likely lead to more convenience when it comes to home management and maintenance it will also create bottlenecks on home networks slowing down your smart phone, tablet and laptops. 

Before you plug in and fire up those smart light bulbs, appliances or television you need to prepare your Wi-Fi network to ensure your speeds and security are not affected by the...

Microsoft just killed Word Flow, one of the best...

It’s been a well-known secret since iOS 9 that one of the best iPhone keyboards is made by one of Apple’s oldest competitors. But if you don’t already own a copy of Microsoft’s Word Flow, your window to buy one has closed.

It was barely a year ago when Microsoft surprisingly released Word Flow, a free iOS version of its popular Windows Phone keyboard. Born out of its experimental Garage arm, Word Flow was built for one reason: speed. With swipe typing and a unique arched one-handed mode, Word Flow redefined speed typing on iOS and quickly rocketed to the top of the charts.

Why Facebook's Willow Beats Apple's Saucer


Facebook knocked it out of the park with its financials last week, and a lot of its success comes from Zuckerberg's unique focus. Unlike other firms that jump from project to project, ranging widely from what makes them money -- like Google -- Facebook stays close to what made it successful. There is no stronger evidence than when you compare the two office projects from Apple and Facebook. The huge Apple Flying Saucer is nearing completion. Facebook recently announced it too was building a new showcase site, called "Willow."

External Link: Apple Removes VPN Apps from Chinese...

Under pressure from the Chinese government, Apple has removed some virtual private network (VPN) apps from the App Store in China. Chinese users use VPNs to tunnel through the so-called “Great Firewall” that censors Internet traffic there. Apple says that the Chinese government now requires a license for all VPN software, so it had no choice but to comply with the law. Apple is in an awkward position in China because it’s torn between wanting to support user privacy and needing government approval to sell to the lucrative Chinese market.

Lawsuit regarding Apple’s ‘breaking’ of FaceTime...

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh ruled late on Friday that iPhone 4 and 4S users can pursue nationwide class action claims that Apple intentionally "broke" FaceTime to save money from routing calls through servers owned by Akamai Technologies, reports Reuters.

Citing internal emails and sworn testimony from a VirnetX trial, the lawsuit alleges Apple devised a plan to "break" FaceTime on iOS 6 or earlier by causing a vital digital certificate to prematurely expire. Apple supposedly implemented the "FaceTime Break" on April 16, 2014, then blamed the sudden incompatibility on a bug, the lawsuit claims. 

The complaint goes on to cite an email chain from Apple engineers as evidence that rising Akamai fees spurred the company's actions. Last year Apple ditched Akamai (which the company had used for 15 years for its content delivery system) for its own servers.

Chance Miller, 9to5Mac:

Last week, Apple released the first build of the upcoming HomePod’s firmware, allowing curious developers to unpack the code and learn a few additional details about the smart speaker. Now, developer Steve Troughton-Smith has discovered code that seemingly confirms that the upcoming iPhone will support face unlock…

Smith explains that the code indicates the existence of infra-red face unlock in BiometricKit, which is the framework responsible for Touch ID. The code further suggests that Apple’s face unlock feature will be able to detect partially occluded face and faces from various angles. The codename for the project Pearl ID.

Here’s the Tweet that confirms infra-red face unlock:
