Obama Warns Against Cyber Cold War


President Obama on Monday urged de-escalation of a potential arms race involving cyberweapons. The president's remarks followed his meeting with world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, at the G20 Summit in Hangzhou, China. The U.S. has more offensive and defensive capability than any other country on Earth, Obama noted.
Citing a new era of significant cyberwarfare capabilities, the president urged moving into a space where leaders begin to institute some norms to prevent global escalation from spinning out of control.

A third of the iPhones now in use are three or more years old, an app analytics vendor said a day before Apple unveils the new iPhone 7.

According to Boston-based Localytics, 32 percent of all iPhones used in August were models that debuted in 2013 or earlier, with that year’s iPhone 5s the third-most popular device at 17 percent. Others, including 2012’s iPhone 5 and 2011’s iPhone 4S, accounted for single digit shares.

Localytics measured share by tallying the models among more than 100 million iPhones that reported data to the app developers that use its analytics tools.

Though everyone knows by now that Apple is working on some sort of automotive technology, no one knows if it’s a full blown “Apple Car” or hardware/software for vehicles. However, a new survey suggests that more than half of U.S. consumers would be interested in cars developed by tech giants Google and Apple.

TECHnalysis Research recently surveyed 1,000 U.S. consumers who both own a car and are planning to purchase a new one within the next two years. They were asked a wide range of questions regarding car brands, features, technologies, and much more. One of the questions specifically focused on the potential interest that consumers would have in purchasing a car sold by Apple, Google, or another major tech company.

Half of the respondents in the survey said they would give at least moderate consideration to purchasing a car from a tech...

First Annapolis has released the third edition of the Study of Mobile Banking & Payments, a semi-annual consumer research study that tracks consumer adoption and use of the mobile channel for banking and payments. The study shows that 89% of U.S. consumers with Apple Pay compatible devices use the service at least once a week.

First Annapolis says that almost 90% of iPhone 6 owners are aware of Apple Pay; nearly two-thirds of compatible Android users are aware of Android Pay; and more than half of Samsung Galaxy owners are aware of Samsung Pay. Those who have used the Pay services give them high ratings: an average of 4.4 out of 5 across the boards, with only a few expressing dissatisfaction.

Twenty-five percent of respondents with compatible devices have enrolled in a Pay service (42% of iPhone 6 users, and 14% and 18% of those with compatible Android and Samsung devices, respectively).  Initial...

But Apple has a lot of other products in the works that we don’t exactly expect to see tomorrow but would love to see leave the lab if only for a preview. 9to5Mac readers would probably put any new Macs on the top of that list, but there’s a lot of other stuff also rumored to be in the pipeline that would make for an exciting ‘One more thing’ on stage tomorrow…

Apple will add support for Sony’s Felica RFID communications technology to the new iPhone 7 that is expected to be announced on Wednesday, according to a report in The Nikkei newspaper.

Felica is the defacto standard on which all contactless payment cards and commuter passes in Japan are based. It’s a standard feature in most phones on the market and Felica readers are in hundreds of thousands of stores, railway stations, on buses, taxis, and vending machines.

By adding a Felica chip to the iPhone 7, the phone could be used in lieu of dedicated payment and transit cards with the installation of an appropriate app.

Rumor: Apple’s ‘AirPods’ to use custom Bluetooth chip

In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — MGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple is working on its own Bluetooth-like communication chip and its own Bluetooth headphone that will likely be included in the wireless earbuds (“AirPods”) the company is reportedly developing. 

The analyst predicts that Apple will sell its Apple-branded Bluetooth headphones alongside its Beats line of headphones, targeting the high-end market with the "AirPods" and the mid-range market with the Beats headphones. What’s more, Kuo doesn’t think the company will package Bluetooth headphones with the “iPhone 7,” that’s expected to be unveiled tomorrow. Rather, he thinks that Apple will ship the iPhone 7 with Lightning-based EarPods that feature a Lightning connector instead of a 3.5mm headphone jack and sell the “AirPods” separately.

A final version of iOS 10 may also be available; if note, you can expect a release date to be announced. Also possible, but less likely, are announcements of new Macs, though I expect that to happen late this month or early in October.

With the announcement of the newest iPhone just a day away, many existing iPhone owners might be starting to think about selling their "old" iPhone to get some cash to help defray the cost of the new equipment. As an Apple blogger, I pretty much have to get each year's new model and unlike some of the writers at the bigger blogs, I can't afford to just go out and buy the new model and throw the old ones into my "museum". So I usually take advantage of online resellers like Gazelle, NextWorth and BuyBackWorld to try to get the best possible trade-in for my old smartphone. If you're considering a move to the new iPhone, it pays to shop around.

Jim Edwards, writing for Business Insider, brings together a story from The New York Times on Apple and agism with an anecdote about the engineer who got OS X to run on a PC:

“Bertrand walks in, watches the PC boot up, and says to JK, ‘How long would it take you to get this running on a (Sony) Vaio?’ JK replies, ‘Not long’ and Bertrand says, ‘Two weeks? Three?’

“JK said more like two hours. Three hours, tops.

“Bertrand tells JK to go to Fry’s (the famous West Coast computer chain) and buy the top of the line, most expensive Vaio they have. So off JK, Max and I go to Frys. We return to Apple less than an hour later. By 7:30 that evening, the Vaio is running the Mac OS. [My husband disputes my memory of this and says that Matt Watson bought the Vaio. Maybe Matt will chime in.]

“The next morning, Steve Jobs is on a plane to Japan to meet with the President of Sony.”

iOS continues growth as the ‘iPhone 7’ looms

The latest smartphone operating system data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech shows year-on-year sales growth for iOS in the three months ending July 2016 in most regions, including the U.S., EU5 (Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain), and Australia. In the U.S., Android posted a year-on-year decline in sales of 0.6 percentage points to 65%.

“Ahead of Apple’s event this week and anticipated new iPhone models, we see that the iPhone SE has meant some success for iOS, helping it achieve year-on-year growth across a number of regions,” says Lauren Guenveur, Consumer Insight director for Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. “In the US, iOS accounted for 31.3% of smartphone sales in the three months ending July 2016, a 1.2 percentage point increase compared to the same period a year ago.”

The iPhone 6s remains the top-selling device in the market with an 11% share, something Kantar expects to continue through the...

A deep take on the Apple car

Greg Kable, writing for Autocar:

Ground zero for the iCar right now is the workshop at 960 Kifer Road in Sunnyvale. In this Silicon Valley suburb, which is also home to a long established Mercedes-Benz research and development centre among hundreds of ambitious start-up companies, Apple is rumoured to be developing elements of its newest product under the cloak of a shell company called SixtyEight Research.

And:

SixEight Research is named on documentation as being the importer of a 1957 Fiat Multipla 600 from the UK to the US in 2014 – a move that has led to rumours that the production iCar could take the form of an upright one-box MPV-style car similar in dimensions to the Volkswagen Budd-E revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show last January.

Here’s a picture of that car.

David Smith on the shifting App Store business model

David Smith, long time indie app developer:

I’ve been thinking this past week (as I often do) about the ever-changing landscape of the App Store. This year has seen some of the biggest changes in policy and structure that I can remember. We have new subscription pricing models , search ads, a substantial purge of older apps , new requirements for app names and a variety of little changes to the App Store app itself in iOS 10.

I won’t know how the sum of these changes will impact my business until probably later this fall, but it seemed like a good time to look back at the last several years and examine the path that brought me here.

And:

The App Store ecosystem today is wildly different from what it was back then. I launched my first app into a store of around 90k apps, today we have well over 2 million. Back then we didn’t have advertising networks, in-app purchases or subscriptions. You were free or paid, and if you wanted to make a living you pretty...

Everyone seems to hate online reader comments. Here’...

Margaret Sullivan, columnist for The Washington Post:

When NPR announced last month that it would no longer feature comments from readers on its website, general rejoicing followed.

“Good riddance — and everybody else should do the same” was the tone of the response I saw on Twitter. USA Today columnist Rem Rieder, noting that other news organizations are moving away from comments as well, wrote, “Their disappearance is welcome.” And even NPR’s ombudswoman, Elizabeth Jensen, wrote that the move made sense to her, since such a small slice of the audience was participating.

I disagree. I find value in reader comments that can’t be adequately reproduced elsewhere. The argument that the conversation has migrated to Facebook and Twitter is flawed. Those are good places for discussion, but they are no substitute for having discussion take place where the story itself lives. I’m convinced that many smart readers with something to contribute will not follow a story...

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, Apple’s iPhone 6s was the world’s top-selling smartphone model in the second quarter of 2016. Apple currently accounts for two of the three top-selling smartphone models shipped worldwide, according to the research group.

Strategy Analytics estimates the iPhone 6s model shipped 14.2 million units and accounted for 4% share of all smartphones shipped worldwide in quarter two 2016. It’s wildly popular in dozens of countries globally, due to its attractive hardware design blended with rich features such as 4K video, large multi-touch display, and fingerprint security,” says Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics.

The research group says the iPhone 6 shipped 8.5 million units worldwide for second position and 2% marketshare during quarter two 2016, followed by Samsung Galaxy S7 edge in third place with 8.3 million and 2% share.

Sales of the Apple Watch dipped in the second...

Shipments of wearable devices such as the Apple Watch reached 22.5 million in the second quarter of 2016 (2Q16) according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker. Despite a decline in shipments for one of the largest vendors, the overall market for wearable devices grew 26.1% year over year as new use cases are slowly starting to emerge.

Apple was the only vendor among the market leaders to post a year-over-year decrease in shipment volumes, primarily because it did not launch a new model on the anniversary of its first generation Watch. 2Q16 was the first full quarter of Apple's reduced price strategy on the Sport model, which slightly helped the company rebound from its post-holiday slump. The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) says Apple Watch sales will rebound with a vengeance when the second generation smartwatch is...

Mobius Final Fantasy is a glossy, yet grindy twist...

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

The iPhone and iPad may not play host to the newest mainline Final Fantasy entries—like the ambitious Final Fantasy XV, coming to consoles this November—but they might have the most series entries in one place. You can grab ports of Final Fantasy I through VII and ...

Apple patent hints at iPhones with glass enclosures

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,439,305) for a “glass enclosure” that hints at future iPhones encased in glass bodies. In the patent filing, Apple says that one design challenge associated with portable electronic devices is in techniques for mounting structures within the portable computing devices. 

Some assembly processes are both time consuming and cumbersome. Another design challenge is to provide an aesthetically pleasing enclosure that’s functional for the intended purpose of the device. Apple says that, with more devices being capable of wireless communications, a radio transparent enclosure would be beneficial, as it would allow components, such as antennas, to be positioned inside the enclosure. The company’s invention would provide a water-resistant and scratch-resistant enclosure.

According to the patent, the enclosure can be formed from a hollow glass tube or two glass members bonded together. A laser frit bonding process may be...

This WITTIDesign device will get you ready for BEDDI...

Do you want/need an iPhone-enabled alarm clock, speaker, radio, USB charger, and disco ball all in one? Then you need the BEDDI from WITTIDesign. It packs a serious amount of features for a $99 device.

Okay, I’m just kidding about the disco ball; the feature is more like a lava lamp. But let me back up. The BEDDI is an “intelligent” alarm clock with features that include a wake-up light, multiple USB charging ports, a Bluetooth speaker, and multi-colored mood lighting. The latter supposedly offers16 million colors. I’ll take WITTIDesign’s word for it; I didn’t count. You can set the BEDDI to awake you by playing your own playlists of tunes (thanks to Spotify integration, though Apple Music integration would be even better). 

The device’s “intelligence” refers to much more than its alarm clock features. The BEDDI can learn your morning commute and periodically update you on how much time you have until you...

Rumor: Top 15 iPhone 7 features leaked

This may be the curtain being lifted ahead of time.

With the iPhone 7 release just over the horizon, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has perhaps released that 15 major changes coming to both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus handsets:

New True Tone displays like the iPad Pro range, with laser based proximity sensors for faster response times

32GB, 128GB and 256GB storage tiers will replace 16GB, 64GB and 128GB

2x 12MP dual rear camera limited to iPhone 7 Plus, uses 1x wide angle and 1x telephoto lenses

Upgraded ambient light sensors on both new iPhone cameras for better low light shots

Camera flash LEDs doubled from two to four with warm and cool colours

3.5mm headphone jack removed

Second external speaker and integrated amplifier for louder, richer...

Apple iCar round up article released, addresses...

Beyond all the rumors and speculation and theory, these guys did the digging.

A lengthy article over on autocar.co.uk describes billions of dollars in R&D, more than 1,000 developers, an assortment of mysterious workshops and a name – the “iCar” – that could be the biggest thing to the auto industry since Karl Benz’s ground breaking Benz Patent-Motorwagen first introduced the world to the motorised carriage 130 years ago.

The piece describes a shell company, an assortment of innocuous real estate and properties and the project, termed “SG6”, as being housed in Sunnyvale, California with only city council documents pointing to it.

As of now, secretive work is being done with the same level of secrecy that goes into other future Apple projects...

AutoCarUK: Look for the first ‘Apple Car’ to drive...

Executives from Audi, BMW, Fiat Chrysler, Ford, General Motors and Mercedes-Benz expect an “Apple Car” will launch by 2021 as a precursor to a fully autonomous successor model to be introduced around 2026 as regulatory conditions are altered to allow features such as fully automated parking, according to AutoCar UK.

The article says Apple’s goal is to see 500,000 sales “iCars” a year — “an acceptable target for a company new to the automotive scene and 10 times what another one of California’s electric car start-ups, Tesla, managed in 2015.” Combined sales of the BMW i3 and i8 totaled just 29,500 last year.

AutoCar UK says an Apple-branded auto will sport “disruptive technologies” such as highly efficient electric propulsion, rapid charging, autonomous driving capability, gesture control, holographic displays, wireless internet...

We’ve been tracking interest in the iPhone 7 for some time now, through a series of reader polls. One day before the launch, we thought it would be a good time to provide a round-up of the results of previous polls, and to carry out one final one.

Way back in January, we asked whether you wanted a thinner iPhone at the expense of the 3.5mm headphone jack. The largest group – just under 40% of you – said that you were happy to use Lightning or Bluetooth headphones. The loss of the headphone socket now looks like a done deal, of course, but without a slimmer form factor.

Also the same month, we asked which of the rumored iPhone 7 features excited you most …

Times are looking good for Kaby Lake Macs to arrive...

According to DigiTimes Intel has begun delivering its next-generation notebookuse Kaby Lake processors and will start shipping comparable desktop-use CPUs by year-end 2016. 

If the publication is right, and Apple gets its hands on some of the first orders, we should see Mac laptops and desktops using the latest chips by the holidays. I’m predicting that Apple will announce new MacBook Pros and iMacs in October with sales starting as soon as the new machines can equipped with Kaby Lake processors. (It’s possible that new Macs will be announced at Wednesday’s media event, but I’m doubtful. When it comes to hardware, I’m only anticipating new iPhones and Apple Watches this week.)

The processors are the successor to the Skylake line of chips. Built on an improved 14nm process, Kaby Lake features, of course, faster CPU clock speed changes. It also features a new graphics architecture to improve...

How to use Siri to get directions

It’s easy to use Siri, Apple’s “personal digital assistant,” on your iPhone or iPad to get directions. Here’s how:

 

Hold down the Home button to activate Siri (or say “Hey, Siri” if your iOS device supports this feature).

Tell Siri the place you want directions to. For example. “Where is Barnes & Noble?”

Siri will show you the location on a map. If there are multiple locations, you can tap the one you want.

The location will be shown to you on a map.

Siri will then present you with directions from your current location to your destination.

Tap Start and you’re good to go.

Apple Hikes Order Volume For iPhone 7 Parts In Wake...

An anonymous reader writes: In wake of Samsung's recall of the Galaxy Note 7, Apple has reportedly hiked orders for parts and components required for the production of the upcoming iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Mac Rumors reports: "Apple shipped on average 30 million iPhone 6s units a month in the second half of 2015. The company originally predicted shipments of the iPhone 7 this year would reach only 60 percent of that number over the same period, but supply chain sources are today reporting that Apple has boosted its original prediction by 10 percent. The hike in order volumes suggests Apple is increasingly upbeat about demand for the new devices among existing iPhone owners seeking to upgrade, despite relatively subdued interest in the iPhone 7 models compared to the pre-launch buzz of previous years. Another potential factor in Apple's upward revision is Samsung's global recall of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone last week, which followed numerous complaints that the device caught fire...
