iPhone 7 trade-in programs require two-year contracts

If you're looking to get your hands on an iPhone 7 in the coming weeks but wasn't fast enough to secure one when preorders open, there's still hope. All four major phone carriers have implemented their own iPhone 7 promotions, but despite their seemi...

Poll: Preorders for the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus...

Staying up late or getting up early in the rush to get Apple’s latest devices can often be quite exciting. Unfortunately, finding out the product you wanted so much won’t ship until as far back as November…well not so much. Last night’s preorder fiasco saw orders quickly falling back into holiday shipping dates, and customers running into all sorts of issues with the iPhone Upgrade Program. Following our poll from yesterday, we wonder, did you end up getting what you wanted?

The 9to5Mac team’s favorite wireless headphones for...

Without a doubt the biggest consumer-facing news from Apple’s September event yesterday was the removal of the iPhone’s headphone jack. This “courageous” move is seen to help push forward wireless audio technology, all the while giving Apple a few more millimeters to work with in the device’s internals.

Not without controversy, this decision does mean leaving a lot of wired headphones in the dust. Not everyone will find the AirPods, expected in October, the default choice and we figured this would be a good time as any to roundup the 9to5Mac team’s opinions on their current favorite pair (or 2) of wireless headphones. Take a look through and be sure to share your current favorite wireless audio options in the comments.

Verizon Wireless has joined rival carriers T-Mobile and Sprint in running a free iPhone 7 launch promo. The terms of Verizon’s deal pretty much mirror that of the other carriers.

To receive the full credit the line must be active for the full 2-years, which would come into play if you’re planning to upgrade next year.

Verizon isn’t too specific on device trade requirements, only saying that it “must be in good working & cosmetic condition.” No matter which iPhone 7/Plus you order, you’...

First-world problems, Part Two: a big thumbs-down on...

Photo by gpointstudio/iStock / Getty Images

I have to admit to being grumpy this morning. Part of is that I'm almost 59 years old and fit the "Grumpy Old Man" persona, but the other has to do with the experience I had early this morning ordering an iPhone 7 Plus. Dennis Sellers has already relayed his displeasure, now it's my turn to weigh in.

Oddly enough, the past few early-morning pre-order sessions have gone well, so there is either a lot of pent-up demand for the iPhone 7 series or Apple's pre-order system just doesn't scale well. I followed my own instructions that had worked flawlessly the past few times, getting my order ready to go in the Apple Store app ahead of time. So when I woke up at 12:55 AM MDT, I figured I'd be back in bed in about 10 minutes.

Wrong. First, the website and Apple Store app seemed to...

MacStories Apple Watch Series 2 overview

Alex Guyot, writing for MacStories, pulls together a nice overview of the new Apple Watch. My biggest question concerned swimming with the Apple Watch 2. From the post:

The original Apple Watch was rated to be splash proof and mostly water resistant, but submerging it was not recommended. The Apple Watch Series 2 ups the ante, receiving a water resistance rating of up to 50 meters. This means the Apple Watch can now safely be worn for swimming in pools or the ocean, and should generally remove any worry about wearing your Apple Watch into potentially watery situations.

I think swimmers are going to love the new Apple Watch.

I gave my verdict on the iPhone 7 yesterday, and asked for yours. The majority of you – some 54% – said that the new iPhone was as expected. That’s not particularly surprising given than we’d previously reported almost everything we saw, but 28% of you were still impressed, while 17% were disappointed.

Impressed or not, though, the majority of those who took part in the poll are intending to buy the new iPhone. Interestingly, and perhaps influenced by the dual-camera, more than twice as many of you are opting for the larger iPhone 7 Plus than its smaller sibling …

I can’t imagine what the Samsung corporate folks are going through right now. Airlines are banning the phone, there are stories of car fires. This is truly terrible.

I’m tired, very tired, as I write this at 8:30 a.m. (Central). I was up at 2 a.m. (Central) to order an iPhone 7 Plus and an Apple Watch Nike+. I though the process would be simple since was up and at ‘em so early. I was wrong.

At least half wrong. Ordering the Apple Watch Nike + was pretty simple. The shipping date is slated as late October. I wish it were sooner, but, as a runner, I wanted the edition targeted especially to runners. Besides, if you haven’t yet ordered a non-Nike Apple Watch, it may not arrive any sooner than mine. My daughter-in-law ordered the stainless steel/sports band model, and she was told it would arrive in late October.

But trying to get an iPhone 7 Plus is/was a different matter entirely. I went to Apple’s online store, selected the iPhone 7 Plus/black/256GB/Verizon model with the goal of signing up for the Apple Upgrade Plan.

I was asked to enter my wireless number, billing zip code, and the last four digits of my Social Security...

TiVo has released findings from a sponsored survey of pay TV and over-the-top (OTT) service subscribers in the U.S., Europe and Asia. The global study is a follow-up to Rovi’s 2015 consumer survey, delving deeper into how viewers engage with content and explore the services and devices that make up their entertainment lifestyle.

Above all, this year’s survey revealed that viewers continue to feel the shockwaves of an industry that is undergoing a significant transition. Ensuring predictable ongoing engagement of audiences, once the hallmark of a successful television series, may be becoming much more challenging.

The survey revealed that while consumers continue to consume significant hours of entertainment content daily, their viewership is becoming potentially more transient, with many viewers “show dumping”—giving up on shows they love because it became too difficult and/or costly to access them.

External Link: Why Apple Removed the iPhone...

Many people were angered by Apple removing the standard 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7, assuming that it was an intentional plan to increase wireless headphone sales for Apple subsidiary Beats. That fact may have played a role in the decision, but BuzzFeed’s John Paczkowski offers a thorough and compelling narrative behind Apple’s decision: the company just ran out of space for it. “We’ve got this 50-year-old connector — just a hole filled with air — and it’s just sitting there taking up space, really valuable space,” said Dan Riccio, Apple’s senior vice president of hardware engineering. “It was holding us back from a number of things we wanted to put into the iPhone. It was fighting for space with camera technologies and processors and battery life.” The camera systems in the iPhone 7 models are much larger than in previous models, and Apple engineers found that the easiest way to cram all the parts in was to remove the headphone jack. Removing it also allowed for water...

I’ve never been one to shy away from admitting when my first impression of a technology turns out to be wrong. I initially saw smartwatches as a solution in search of a problem, and didn’t think I would keep mine.

The only question this time around, then, was whether I was going to upgrade to the Series 2. The new fitness features sold it (...

In its place, Apple has released the $1,249 Ceramic model, which serves as Apple’s new top shelf unit.

Apple is currently touting the Ceramic model’s durability and scratch resistance as a luxury feature worth the extra money. The company is claiming that the proprietary metal is four times harder than steel and thus that much more durable.

The Ceramic model accompanies the other models of the Apple Watch: Series 1, Series 2, Series 2 Nike+ and Series 2 Hermés. The Series 2 is still available in a “Rose Gold” flavor as well as an assortment of other colors.

While the focus of the Apple media event centered on the iPhone 7 and the Apple Watch Series 2, Apple nixed the 16 GB model of its iPad variants and is now offering 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB storage capacities.

The iPad Air 2 is now available in 32 GB and 12 GB capacities and can be purchased for $399 and $499. The iPad mini 4 is the same storage options and the same price points.

Apple takes courageous risks with the iPhone 7 to...

Apple needs the iPhone 7 to be a major success because it is the main driver of growth for the whole company, according to Paul Erickson, senior analyst, Connected Home at IHS Technology. Direct revenues for the iPhone represented 57% of total Apple revenue in the second calendar quarter, but the importance of the iPhone for Apple is much greater than direct revenues alone, he adds.

“We expect the new iPhone 7 camera design will successfully convince consumers to upgrade their older iPhones, despite the lack of headphone socket,” says Erickson. “IHS Technology forecasts Apple will ship 209 million iPhone units in 2016.”

The camera is the most significant iPhone 7 feature, he adds. With the new iPhone 7 range design, Apple is correctly focusing on the defining feature of flagship smartphones, the camera. Ericsson says Apple benefits in several ways from the improved iPhone 7 camera:

No, Apple isn’t entering the shoe business (at least as far as I know), but the company did make a pair of kicks in the 1990s. Apparently only one pair of the sneakers were ever produced. I think some Apple branded shoes would be cool as part of an “iWear” line.

The tennis shoes apparently didn't garner much interest, so Apple abandoned them as promotional items, according to BitRebels. They were made from the typical white leather material of the times and sport Apple's rainbow logo on the tongue and on the side. 

The shoes were first sold to an Apple employee in the mid-'90s. In 2011, they were put up for auction on eBay. Scott King, won the...

iPhone 7: Jet Black vs. Black

Apple, in a small print footnote on the iPhone 7 web page:

The high-gloss finish of the jet black iPhone 7 is achieved
through a precision nine-step anodization and polishing process.
Its surface is equally as hard as other anodized Apple products;
however, its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use. If
you are concerned about this, we suggest you use one of the many
cases available to protect your iPhone.

I just got home from San Francisco two hours ago, and took a look at my old 3G and 3GS. They were somewhat-glossy black plastic, not highly-glossy anodized aluminum, so it’s a far from a perfect comparison. But the backs of both my 3G and 3GS are scratched as hell. It didn’t bother me at the time, and they still don’t look bad per se — they just look well-used.

I didn’t notice any scratches at all on the jet black phones in the hands-on area Wednesday, but...

While there's not as much exciting news as in yesterday's marathon podcast, today's can be listened to in its entirety in just a little over four minutes. Here's what we have for you today:

  • We take exception to a very clickbaitish article about AirPods on another website (we're looking at you, Business Insider) <--- don't click that!
  • GeekBench 4 results show the iPhone 7 Plus to be a fast smartphone, even faster than the iPad Pro!

Belkin’s dual charging and headphone adapter is here...

The iPhone 7 is here, and gone is the headphone jack. While Apple is bundling each new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with Lightning-based EarPods and a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, the company hasn’t provided a solution to one common use case: How do you listen to music with headphones and charge your phone at the same time?

Belkin’s latest adapter solves that problem—the Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar will allow you to do both simultaneously. This device plugs into your iPhone’s Lightning port, and includes two Lightning ports on the other end to plug in your EarPods and your charging cable. Belkin says that the adapter will work with all Lightning...

macOS Sierra FAQ: What you need to know about the...

This fall, Apple will release macOS Sierra, a major update to the Mac operating system. This FAQ will answer some of the general questions you may have to help you learn what it’s all about and whether you should install it on your Mac. We’ll update this FAQ with more questions, answers, and details as the release date approaches.

macOS? What happened to OS X?

Apple decide to change the name in order to fit with the names of iOS, watchOS, and tvOS. So no more Roman numerals (or that annoying person who insists on calling it “OS ex”).

Some trivia, if you’re interested: macOS isn’t entirely a new name. Before version 10, Apple used to call its Mac operating system Mac OS, with the last version being Mac OS 9. Apple change the name to OS X when version 10 was released in 2001.

Poll: iPhone 7 & 7 Plus preorders start tomorrow...

The excitement is starting to brew up as we get closer and closer to iPhone 7 and 7 Plus preorders. Starting tomorrow at 12:01 AM PST, customers will be able to pre-order the iPhone, with retail availability starting on September 16th. Now is as good as time as any to get yourself ready and thinking about your configuration choices and backup plans, just in case what you want isn’t available. Coming in a new Jet Black finish (but only in the 128GB and 256GB capacities), single and dual-camera options, all running together on-top of the new A10 chip, the iPhone 7 is surely ready to give customers something to think about. Will the lack of the headphone jack steer you away from upgrading this year?

Sure, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus don’t ship until September 16, but you can get a protective case for your soon-to-be new phone right now.

Opinion: As Apple Watch Series 2 enhances fitness...

The Apple Watch Series 2 announcement isn’t earth shattering. Swim proof, built-in GPS, brighter display, faster chip, and same design. Most first-gen Apple Watch users will be satisfied with the speed gains that the watchOS 3 software update offers and won’t consider upgrading, and first time Apple Watch buyers will have a better experience with the new hardware and software from day one.

I’m hardly disappointed personally. I asked for a better sports watch and that’s what Apple delivered. The Series 2 message is so clearly targeted toward health and activity that it’s easy to miss features like Siri and Apple Pay!

It’s especially interesting to me that Apple actually introduced two new Apple Watch models: Series 1 and Series 2. The first-gen Apple Watch is dead. That’s absolutely the right...

This is a great idea. One of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do is to talk openly as I can about my battles with depression. I’ve taken a lot of crap for it from jerks on the internet but I’ve gotten more support from complete strangers than I ever could have imagined and I’m very grateful for that. If you’re suffering, reach out to family, friends, and even complete strangers for help. There’s no shame in it.
