Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,807,661) for “cellular service recovery using cell-specific service history.” The goal is to improve cell service on the iPhone and Apple Watch.

The patent relates to cellular service recovery techniques using cell-specific cellular service history information for an accessory device. According to some embodiments, cellular service history information relating to cellular service loss occasions for each of one or more cells from which the accessory device has previously lost cellular service may be stored.

How to scan QR codes in iOS 11

Apple has added QR support to iOS 11. You can scan QR codes without the need for a third-party app. Here’s how:

  • Open the Camera app and make sure the rear facing camera is enabled.
  • Point the camera viewfinder at the QR code. Make sure the code is entirely visible in the view finder.
  • Hold the camera steady. The QR code will be scanned instantly and you’ll see a notification at the top of the iPhone or iPad screen describing what kind of QR code you’ve scanned (website QR Code, Calendar QR code, etc.).

You’ll see what action the QR code can perform (add event to your calendar, open page in Safari). You don’t have to to press the capture or shutter button. Just pointing the camera and holding it steady at the QR code is all you need to do.

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

Comment: I suspect Apple limits Face ID to one...

One thing really jumped out at me yesterday reading Mashable’s early review of the iPhone X, and that was Apple’s response to a query by Lance Unlanoff.

One important limitation of Face ID: It only lets you register one face. That may strike many as unnecessarily limiting since Touch ID lets users register up to 10 [sic] fingerprints, but Apple says it found the number of people who register more than one person’s fingerprints is miniscule.

The idea that hardly anyone registers more than one person’s fingerprint didn’t ring true to me, and...

Apple Uses Machine Learning To Chronicle All the Bra...

New submitter bumblebaetuna shares a report from Motherboard: It's already well known that iOS 11 included some advanced updates to the phone's artificial intelligence, and this includes improving the photo app's ability to identify and categorize what is in each of your photos. There are thousands of objects the phone can identify, ranging from "abacus" to "zucchini." Weirdly, despite not having categories for, say, "nude," or "underwear," there are multiple categories for bra: brassiere, bandeau, bandeaus, bra, bras, and brassieres. Searching for this folder in your photos app may reveal an unexpected surprise. Though there are some pretty archaic terms like "homburg," "habiliment," and "danseuse," the "bra" category is unusual compared to the other quotidian labels the app slaps on your photos, and is as risque as the terms get.

iPhone X Review Roundup

I’ve been using an iPhone X since yesterday, but I’ve only had it for about 24 hours as I type this, so I’m in no position to write a review yet. But my quick take:

  • Face ID works great. In practice it’s like not even having a passcode on the phone. You just swipe and you’re in. It’s also very quick to set up — way quicker than setting up even a single fingerprint in Touch ID.
  • I don’t really notice the notch while using it.
  • I do notice the lack of a home button. I think I’ll get used to the new no-home-button UI soon, but 10 years of habits die hard.
  • The device feels great.

I was far from alone in not getting an extended period of time to test the phone before the review embargo lifted.

Here’s what others are saying in their reviews.

It’s time to update your iOS devices, because iOS 11.1 is here. On Tuesday, Apple pushed iOS 11.1 out of beta and made it available to the masses, ushering in a slew of improvements as well as some new features. This is the first major iOS 11 update.

Vampires!), expressions (sillier faces!), animals (giraffes! Hedgehogs! Dinosaurs!), and more. You’ll need iOS 11.1 to both send and receive these new emoji—otherwise, you’ll just see a generic empty box.

Apple Limits Lengthy iPhone X Testing for Most...

Tripp Mickle, reporting for the Wall Street Journal: Apple departed from its traditional preview strategy for what it bills as its most important new iPhone in years, prioritizing early access to the iPhone X for YouTube personalities and celebrities over most technology columnists who traditionally review its new products. Apple provided the iPhone X to a small number of traditional testers for about a week, while limiting most others, The Wall Street Journal included, to a single day with the device before reviews could be published (alternative source). About a half-dozen personalities on Alphabet's YouTube video service were granted time with the device before its release. The change in strategy meant the iPhone X, which hits stores Friday, got less testing than most of its predecessors before reviews could be published. Crash reviewers largely echoed those sentiments, adding the caveat that they could discover issues after they spend more time with the device. Most pledged...

∞ View from on-board the fastest RC jet ever built

[VIDEO] This video (embedded in the main Loop post) is really cool. Note that this is a point-of-view shot, lots of rolls, steep turns, so don’t watch if that sort of thing bothers you.

And if you have animals, turn the sound down, some pretty high pitched engine whine.

I love the setup at the beginning, priming the turbine, getting the jet started. Terrific fun.

Tech Crunch iPhone X review

Before you read on, spend a few minutes reading Jim Dalrymple’s iPhone X first take.

With that as a foundation, read Matt Panzarino’s Disneyland-based iPhone X review. It’s fun, informed, and interesting.

Too much to excerpt the whole thing, but here’s a bit on Face ID:

Going in to this review, my threshold for “success” was whether Face ID worked as well or better than first-generation Touch ID. I didn’t expect it to nail the speed of the second-gen sensor, which is incredibly fast. As long as it landed between the two I would be happy.

Face ID works really well. First, it’s incredibly easy to set up. You choose to enable it and then rotate your nose around the points of a clock twice. That’s it. Second, it worked the vast majority of...

Huh, I’ve never seen that before. That was my reaction when I first saw the new 360-degree Rylo video camera in action. 360-degree cameras are nothing new, and I’m rarely impressed by the VR content produced by these devices. But with a handful of crafty software tricks, Rylo ($499 at Rylo.com) rises well above the fray.

Rylo is small enough to sit in the palm of your hand, and comes with dual 4K video cameras (though when you opt for a traditional video window instead of a 360-degree experience, your resolution will be 1080p.) Each lens captures a 208-degree field of view, and has an f/2.8 fixed aperture.

iOS 11.2 introduces ‘SiriKit for HomePod’

Zac Hall, 9to5Mac:

Apple has detailed an upcoming feature included in the new iOS 11.2 developer beta called SiriKit for HomePod. When HomePod launches in December, SiriKit for HomePod will allow developers to use the smart speaker as an access point to sending commands to their apps on iPhone and iPad.

No way to test this yet, as far as I know. Will Apple ship a HomePod simulator for Xcode before the HomePod itself ships?

Enlarge / The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. (credit: Samuel Axon)

The latest news in the Apple-Qualcomm saga suggests that Apple may be trying to leave the chipmaker behind as soon as next year. A report by The Wall Street Journal states that Apple is designing iPhones and iPads that do not use Qualcomm components. Instead, the tech giant may source modem chips from Intel or MediaTek.

Apple began stepping away from Qualcomm chips with the introduction of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, both of which us a combination of Qualcomm and Intel chips. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which came out in September, also use a combination of Qualcomm and Intel...

The iPhone 8 review, lost in a sea of iPhone X...

Jason Snell, Six Colors, on the iPhone 8:

This is the fate of the iPhone 8. It will be ignored by many of Apple’s most committed followers, who see it as a speed bump on the road to the release of the iPhone X in early November.

The iPhone X is stealing the iPhone 8 thunder, no doubt. But there’s a lot to appreciate here, especially if you have an older phone:

Instead, it will soldier on, doing its job as the latest iteration of the existing iPhone line, providing a substantial upgrade to people who haven’t bought an iPhone in two or three years and aren’t interested in paying $999 for the very first generation of a new iPhone, if they could even find one in stores. These people are ready for a better version of their existing phone, and the iPhone 8 will deliver that to them.

If you are considering an update, but stuck on the fence between an iPhone 8 and iPhone X, spend some time digging through Jason’s detailed iPhone 8 review. It just might change...

Parks Associates announced new research today in smartphone ownership showing that Apple and Samsung have widened their brand share lead over LG and Motorola among the installed base of smartphones in the U.S. The international firm shows that LG has fallen to just 9% of consumer-reported brand share, behind Apple (47%) and Samsung (29%).

"Samsung's market share has held at approximately 30% of the installed smartphone base since 2015, indicating that the issues related to its Galaxy Note line last year did little to impact its market position overall," says Kristen Hanich, Research Analyst, Parks Associates. "The new Galaxy S8 and Note 8 have sold better than their predecessors, signifying a strong consumer interest in Samsung's premium smartphone brands. Nevertheless, Apple still has a sizeable lead in market share and maintains a tight replacement cycle."

With early reviewers finding that Face ID on the iPhone X is mostly reliable, if not perfect, the transition from fingerprints to face may not be too big a deal. But there is one clear drawback compared to Touch ID: you can only register one face.

With Touch ID, you can register multiple fingers – which can include a partner or child, for example – but Apple chose not to allow this with faces. The company told Mashable that’s because only a ‘miniscule’ number of people do this.

But that sounds odd to me …...

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...

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).

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.

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...

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.

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.
