Apple Pay now accepted at two out of three U.S....

Speaking at NRF 2018 Retail's Big Show in New York earlier this month, Jennifer Bailey, vice president of Apple Pay, said the company’s mobile payment service is now accepted by two out of three U.S. stores, reports AppleInsider.

For comparison, Apple Pay was limited to about 3% of stores in the U.S. when it launched in 2014. Led by the iPhone, mobile is doing more to revolutionize e-commerce than any other platform, Bailey said. Purchases made on smartphones and tablets account for 25% of e-commerce transactions in the U.S. The rate of growth for mobile transactions is four times that of desktop, and 10 times that of traditional brick and mortar retail, Bailey said.

Apple Pay is currently available in 20 countries: Australia, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Spain,...

Apple presses for more sanctions against VoIP-Pal

Apple is continuing its quest for sanctions against VoIP-Pal.com following the communications company's successful defense of two Voice over Internet Protocol patents.

The tech giant argues that VoIP-Pal's management participated in behind-the-scenes correspondence its former CEO sent the Patent Trial and Appeal Board during the proceedings, according to Law360. Apple claims that its opponent contacted senior administration officials and the judges presiding over the case, swaying the outcome of an inter partes review proceeding.

This comes two months after the PTAB upheld multiple claims in two VoIP-Pal patents being leveraged in a patent infringement suit against Apple's iMessage and certain Wi-Fi based voice...

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...

Apple reportedly delaying some major iOS features to...

Axios is reporting that Craig Federighi instructed the software division to put aside some major iOS projects in order to focus on performance and reliability issues for iOS 12. The publication says a refresh of the Home screen and other features have been shelved to dedicate more resources to bug fixing, smaller tweaks and platform finesse.

There will be some new features in iOS 12 including augmented reality improvements, health features and improved parental controls, reports Axios. Bigger changes, including a refresh of the Home screen, have been delayed to next year.

What if macOS Spotlight had a full screen...

I use macOS Spotlight for searches both on my local network and the Internet. But what if Spotlight had the option of a full screen implementation complete with saved searches and smart categorization?

First, imagine a completely different view. Different sections of the screen would have different functions and would be configurable. It would be far more web-enabled than the current Spotlight. 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...

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.

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.

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…

Apple’s iCloud Drive lets you securely access all of your documents from your Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and even a Windows PC. When you set up iCloud, you automatically get 5GB of storage. You can use that storage space for iCloud Backup, iCloud Drive, iCloud Photo Library, iCloud Mail (your @icloud.com email account), and the information from your apps that use iCloud.

If you need more iCloud storage, you can buy more starting at 50GB for $0.99 a month directly from your Apple device. When you choose a new storage plan, your existing plan is canceled and you're charged the prorated cost of the larger plan (the cost of the higher-tier plan minus the prorated cost of the previous plan). 

Your plan is upgraded immediately, and the new monthly payment date is updated to reflect the purchase date for the new plan. You're billed every month for your storage plan unless you cancel by downgrading your...

The announcement of three new iPhone models in the same quarter in the second half of 2017 was the first time Apple made such a major endeavor, and we believe the delay of iPhone X, which had the most complicated design yet, shows that Apple doesn't have enough resources available for development.

Comment: How HomePod could be better for early...

Apple has entered two new product categories in the last few years — wearables and smart speakers — with dramatically different levels of hype.

Apple Watch was one-half of the iPhone 6 keynote and warranted a second event before its debut. HomePod was similarly introduced months in advance as a sneak peek at the end of WWDC but its launch has been noticeably more low-key.

That may be because Apple is taking HomePod slower and the addressable market is limited to just three countries to start, but ultimately HomePod may prove a better investment for early adopters than Apple Watch did.

A few weeks ago on the Apple World Today News Update Podcast, we noted that Apple had apparently manufactured one million HomePods in its first production run. That number is probably spot on, as the new Apple smart speaker is still available online to pre-order for delivery or pickup on February 9.

The HomePod is primarily designed to be used with the Apple Music service and will also be Apple's first entry into the smart speaker market now dominated by Amazon's Alexa-based Echo devices. Unlike Alexa, however, Siri (the intelligent assistant in the HomePod) is only listening for the words "Hey, Siri" before it begins paying attention to your commands. Alexa is constantly listening and sending voice data to Amazon's servers -- if you have privacy concerns, the HomePod is the way to go.

As you can see from the screenshot at right, HomePod availability in the Denver, Colorado area is wide open. Some individual stores may be low in stock and showing later delivery dates...

Another January, another misleading iPhone supply...




Everyone in the industry should know that "channel checks" of Apple suppliers offer largely worthless data. But every January, Japan's Nikkei newspaper unloads a report suggesting that Apple is scrambling to slash production of its newest iPhone because of disappointing sales. Every year that report has been false, and every year the tech media falls for it.

Review: Living with Vitra’s Pacific Chair, Jony Ive’...

If I asked you to name a few common technology products, office chairs probably wouldn’t make the list. The act of sitting down is such a fundamental human activity that chairs are often overlooked entirely, and rarely thought of as technology. Yet, sitting has quietly become an art in itself. The engineering behind a chair can make or break your productivity and its design can compliment or ruin the appearance of room. Multiply that factor by 12,000 – the number of employees expected to occupy the new Apple Park campus in Cupertino – and suddenly choosing the right chair becomes vital.

With that in mind, upon hearing that Apple – with guidance by Jony Ive – had picked Vitra’s Pacific Chair as the seat of choice for one of the most creative workforces on earth, I knew I had to...

Apple Could Use ARM Coprocessors for Three Updated...

According to a Bloomberg report, Apple could be working on three new Mac models for this year. From a report: All three of them could feature an ARM coprocessor to improve security. Apple isn't switching to ARM chipsets altogether. There will still be an Intel CPU in every Mac, but with a second ARM processor. Currently, the MacBook Pro features a T1 chip while the iMac Pro features a T2 chip. On the MacBook Pro, the ARM coprocessor handles the Touch ID sensor and the Touch Bar. This way, your fingerprint is never stored on your laptop's SSD drive -- it remains on the T1 secure enclave. The Intel CPU only gets a positive response when a fingerprint is validated. The iMac Pro goes one step further and uses the T2 to replace many discrete controllers. The T2 controls your stereo speakers, your internal microphone, the fans, the camera and internal storage.

HomePod: An hour in the hands of an audio engineer

Reddit user WinterCharm, an audio engineer who got an hour to play with a HomePod:

Fucking hell this thing is TINY. It’s really surprising to see it in person. Hefting it is odd, too. The fabric is soft but firm. It was also lighter than I was expecting. It’s also very pretty. Aside from the single cord coming out the back, there is no idication that it has a particular side/front. It’s built to blend into whatever space it’s in, rather than stand out.

And:

Having heard it side by side with The Sonos Play One and Google Home Max, A single HomePod is already much better than both in terms of sound quality.

And:

The first impression was the neutrality of the speaker. The HomePods are tuned for an as-true-to-recording sound. When the song calls for it, there is bass. When the song turns to crystal clear highs, they are reproduced faithfully. What really was interesting is the instrument separation in the room. At about 45% volume, the HomePod FILLED...

Things Apple's $350 HomePod Smart-Speaker Can...

In June last year, Apple announced the HomePod, its first smart-speaker which will battle Amazon's sleeper hit Echo speakers and Google's Home speakers. Apple being late to enter a product category is nothing new, but the HomePod has a few other strange things about it. Apple said it won't begin shipping the HomePod until December that year, in a departure of its own tradition. Then the device's shipment was delayed till "early 2018" -- February 9 is the current shipping date. Bloomberg has reported about the difficulties Apple engineers faced over the years to come up with the HomePod. At any rate, Business Insider now has more information about the device, and is reporting the things that Apple's first smart-speaker won't be able to do. From the report (condensed): 1. HomePod can't pair with Android phones. 2. HomePod doesn't recognize different people's voices. 3. HomePod can't check your calendar. 4. HomePod doesn't work well with other streaming services besides Apple Music. (...

iOS App Store vs Google Play Store in two charts

From App Annie’s quarterly analysis of the iOS App Store and Google Play revenues.

Chart 1 shows app downloads for each store, in billions:

As you can see, Google Play has about 2-1/2 times the number of downloads as the iOS App Store.

Now let’s look at revenue:

The conclusion from this chart? Customers for the iOS App Store spend almost twice as much as Google Play customers.

That’s a pretty big swing.

In February 2016, Immersion filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission ("ITC") against Apple, AT&T., and AT&T Mobility LLC. The company also filed a patent infringement complaint against those three firms in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware.

The complaints alleged that the iPhone 6,  iPhone 6 Plus,  iPhone 6s,  iPhone 6s Plus, and Apple Watch infringed certain Immersion patents covering haptic feedback systems and methods in electronic devices.

So far, only two Mac lines include custom Apple processors: the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and the iMac Pro. Piper Jaffrey senior analyst Mike Olson tells Bloomberg that by designing its own chips, Apple cuts component costs, gets an early jump on future features because it controls research and development, and keeps secrets away from frenemies such as Samsung.

On a related note, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says in notes to clients that Apple’s expected 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be a huge hit with consumers, offering capabilities of the iPhone X at a lower price point.

Chronos' Business Card Shop for macOS (10.11 or later) makes it easy to design business cards. And the latest version (8) adds enhanced color capabilities.
