USB 3.0 Promoter Group touts new USB 3.2 spec

USB just keeps getting faster and faster, with the USB 3.0 Promoter Group -- of which Apple is a member -- announcing the upcoming release of the USB 3.2 specification yesterday. It's considered an "incremental update" to USB 3.1, but it's an important one -- it defines multi-lane operation for USB 3.2 hosts and devices, meaning that devices can allow for two lanes of 5 Gbps (gigabit per second) data transfer or two lanes of 10 Gbps transfer. 

Connecting a USB 3.2 host to a USB 3.2 device would now provide transfer speeds of over 2 GB/sec (gigabytes per second) over existing USB Type-C cables certified for SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps. 

The key takeaway here? It's using existing USB Type-C cables but doubling the capacity of those cables. The Promoter Group says that the USB 3.2 solution allows for continued use of existing SuperSpeed USB physical layer data rates and encoding techniques for...

How Jony Ive Masterminded Apple's New...

Reader cdreimer writes: As reported by The Wall Street Journal (paywalled, summary by Apple Insider), Jony Ive explains how he brought forth Steve Jobs' final design, Apple Park, Apple's newest campus headquarters, to life: "On a sunny day in May, Jonathan Ive -- Jony to anyone who knows him -- first encounters a completed section of Apple Park, the giant campus in Cupertino, California, that has turned into one of his longest projects as Apple's chief designer. A section of workspace in the circular, Norman Foster -- designed building is finally move-in-ready: sliding-glass doors on the soundproof offices, a giant European white oak collaboration table, adjustable-height desks, and floors with aluminum-covered hinged panels, hiding cables and wires, and brushed-steel grating for air diffusion. Ive's characteristically understated reaction -- "It's nice, though, isn't it?" -- masks the anxiety he feels each time a product he's designed is about to be introduced to the world. "There...

Foxconn plant in Wisconsin to be announced tonight

One of Apple's largest manufacturing partners is Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd, commonly known by the trade name Foxconn. Tonight, it's expected that Foxconn representatives, President Donald Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will announce a new Foxconn plant to be located in Wisconsin.

While Foxconn assembles iPhones and other products for Apple, it's unknown if Apple will have any part in the production at the plant. For example, several reports have said that the new plant would be used to create large-format TV displays, something that Apple doesn't currently sell nor have any plans to market. 

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump made one of his patented tweets, saying that Apple was going to bring three "big, big, big" plants to the US. Since Apple doesn't assemble its own products, it's likely he...

Fluent: Apple has some of the highest loyalty,...

Among major corporate brands, Apple has some of the highest loyalty and satisfaction rates with the U.S. public, according to a recent study by the Fluent marketing firm.

Based on June online polls of U.S. adults, using at least 2,000 to 3,000 completed surveys for each selected industry, Apple achieved a 91% loyalty score and 85% satisfaction score. In the study, Fluent included the “largest and most relevant” consumer industries. For each industry, it surveyed consumers about 15-20 of the largest brands. 

Here’s what Fluent has to say about Apple: “Apple remains the gold standard for practical innovation.  e brand continues to integrate more and more devices, ensuring that as consumers add to their Apple ecosystem (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, etc.) they become increasingly dedicated to the brand’s signature experience.”

Apple’s newest Apple Music commercial plays to...

[VIDEO] Billboard:

Brantley Gilbert made the most of an opportunity on July 23, debuting a new, 60-second black-and-white Apple Music commercial during a NASCAR race that bore his name this year, the Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400.

The spot will likely appeal to fans of both country and rock, two genres that trail pop and hip-hop in the penetration of streaming services. Shot over two days near Leiper’s Fork, Tenn., the video incorporates images of a wide-open field, motorcycles on a country road, rural neighbors in a small-town diner and an American flag, backed by snippets of Gilbert’s current single, “The Ones That Like Me,” plus Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle” and Steppenwolf’s “Born to Be Wild.” Other acts whose names are visible in Gilbert’s playlist include Johnny Cash, Metallica and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Apple Music touts a three-month free trial in the spot, after Gilbert delivers a simple...

President Trump claimed in a WSJ interview that Tim Cook has promised to build three large manufacturing plants in the U.S. – without specifying when this might happen, where they might be located or what they might make.

“I spoke to [Mr. Cook], he’s promised me three big plants—big, big, big,” Mr. Trump said as part of a discussion about business-tax reform and business investment. “I said you know, Tim, unless you start building your plants in this country, I won’t consider my administration an economic success. He called me, and he said they are going forward.”

But there is every reason to doubt this, no persuasive reason to believe it – and little basis for believing it would matter much even if it were true …

How Jony Ive masterminded Apple’s new headquarters

Christina Passariello, Wall Street Journal:

Apple Park is unlike any other product Ive has worked on. There will be only one campus—in contrast to the ubiquity of Apple’s phones and computers—and it doesn’t fit in a pocket or a hand. Yet Ive applied the same design process he brings to technological devices: prototyping to minimize any issues with the end result and to narrow what he calls the delta between the vision and the reality of a project. Apple Park is also the last major project Ive worked on with Steve Jobs, making it more personal for the man Jobs once called his “spiritual partner.”

So far, so good. But:

With Apple Park, Ive is ensconced as master of the house, which means he has also inherited the burden of proving that Apple’s best days aren’t behind it. Apple hasn’t had a breakthrough product since Jobs died. The iPhone’s sales growth has stalled, and expectations are high that a 10th-anniversary phone will arrive later this year and will be...

A report on the latest cochlear implants from hearing-aid manufacturer Cochlear has revealed that Apple worked on Bluetooth protocols for direct connection to iPhones – and now licenses it to manufacturers free of charge.

Cochlear implants are used by people who are profoundly deaf, and need to be surgically implanted into the ear. They usually connect to phones via an external device, which are quite obtrusive. What Apple has developed in conjunction with manufacturers of the devices is to eliminate that intermediary device, allowing direct connection to an iPhone …

And:

A second source separately told the Journal Sentinel that Foxconn would announce its plans for Wisconsin this week, but didn’t know where the announcement would be made.

Market Watch: The Apple Car could run traditional...

Vitaliy Katsenelson, Market Watch:

I had this “Aha!” moment recently when I visited a Tesla store and saw its cars’ power train. It looks just like a skateboard — basically a flat slab of metal (which houses the battery), four wheels, and an electric engine the size of a large watermelon. That’s it — the Tesla has only 18 moving parts.

Many Tesla showrooms have that full size power train on display. It really is something to behold, a marvel of efficiency.

If both Tesla and Apple bypass the dealership model, the GMs of the world will be at an even larger competitive disadvantage. They will have to abandon the dealership model too. Yes, I know, selling cars directly to consumers is not legal in many states, but if the U.S. Constitution could be amended 27 times, the law on car sales (which is an artifact of the Great Depression) can be amended as well. The traditional dealership model is unlikely to survive anyway, as its economics dramatically degrade in the...

Cochlear introduces Made for iPhone cochlear implant...

Cochlear Limited, which specializes in implantable hearing solutions, has introduced the Cochlear Nucleus 7 Sound Processor. 

Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in June, it’s the world's first Made for iPhone cochlear implant sound processor and the smallest and lightest behind-the-ear cochlear implant sound processor available on the market, according to Chris Smith, Cochlear CEO and president. With the Nucleus 7 Sound Processor, people with a Cochlear Nucleus Implant can now stream sound directly from a compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch directly to their sound processor.

They’llalso be able to control, monitor and customize their hearing on their iPhone or iPod touch through the Nucleus Smart App, a free download at the Apple App Store. The Nucleus 7 Sound Processor offers a range of features with the app. A Hearing Tracker feature records coil-offs time (each time the sound processor...

Federal judge slaps Apple with a $506 million fine...

U.S. District Judge William Conley of Wisconsin has entered a $506 million judgment against Apple for infringing a computer processor patent owned by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), more than double what a jury awarded the organization in damages in October 2015, reports the Law360 website.

The judge, in his determination, said WARF is owed additional damages plus interest because Apple continued to use the patented technology without license until the IP expired in December 2016. In early 2013, WARF filed a lawsuit saying that Apple's A7 processor (which is now up to version A10) infringed a university-developed patent that improves "the efficiency and performance of contemporary computer processors...

Adobe announces “end of life” date for Flash Player...

Adobe’s Flash Player now has an end date: the end of 2020.

Adobe says it’s working with companies including Apple and Google to prepare for the upcoming death of Flash, as quoted here:

Given this progress, and in collaboration with several of our technology partners – including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla – Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

Leading up to the end of 2020 and the death of Flash Player, Adobe has stated that it will continue to support the plug-in with both security and browser compatibility updates. In some regions where older, insecure versions of Flash are heavily distributed, however, Adobe plans to ramp up EOL efforts “more aggressively” as part of the effort.

USB Promoter Group announces USB 3.2 protocol, cites...

The USB 3.0 Promoter Group, comprising Apple, HP, Intel, Microsoft, and other companies, today introduced an upcoming USB 3.2 specification, which will eventually replace the existing USB 3.1 specification upon release.

While the increase is relatively incremental, the group stated that the USB 3.2 protocol will allow for either two lanes of 5Gb/s or two lanes of 10Gb/s operation.

With support for two lanes of 10Gb/s transfer speeds, performance is essentially doubled over existing USB-C cables.

The USB Promoter Group stated that a USB 3.2 host connected to a USB 3.2 storage device will be capable of 2GB/sec data transfer performance over a USB-C cable certified for USB SuperSpeed 10Gb/s USB 3.1, while also remaining backwards compatible with earlier USB devices.

Along with two-lane operation, USB 3.2 continues to use SuperSpeed USB layer data rates and encoding techniques and will introduce a minor update to hub specifications for seamless...

Apple invention would help parents keep track of...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,715,584) designed to make it easier for parents to keep track of their children. The invention is for a “biometric receipt.”

It involves an child’s electronic device — iPhones and Apple Watches are the most logical gadgets — that provides a tracking report to a computing device (another iPhone or Apple Watch) located remotely from it. The tracking report may include location information that identifies the geographical location of the kids’ device, and device user information that identifies the user of the electronic device. And, by kids, this all applies more to teens and pre-teens than toddlers and infants, as they're probably don't have iPhones or Apple Watches.

The device acquires location information for the tracking report through a location awareness capability such as a global positioning system. The device acquires user identification information for the tracking report through a biometric scanning component, such as...

Nomad Leather Case for the iPhone 7/7 Plus offers...

The Nomad Leather Case for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is a nice compromise of high quality at a reasonable price. It costs $39.95, which is $10 cheaper than Apple’s Leather Case for an iPhone 7 Plus. Apple’s case is easier to install but, once it’s in place, the Nomad is is more protective.

Made from vegetable-tanned Horween leather, it’s designed to look better over time. Much like your favorite pair of raw denim, leather ages in a similar way, developing a “patina” as oils from your skin and other elements of the environment absorb into it. Patina isn’t a bad thing; it’s a good thing. In fact, it’s the main reason people fall in love with natural leather in its raw state. Starting with a beautiful pale tan shade, it eventually develops into any range of browns through wear and use. 

Not only does the Nomad look good, it offers reasonable iPhone security, due to its full-wrap...

If you're an advanced user who’s comfortable with UNIX, you can use single-user mode or verbose mode to help isolate issues related to startup.

This level of detail can be very helpful for troubleshooting problems with hardware or software, if errors are occurring during startup or after the operating system has loaded.

To start your Mac in single-user mode or verbose mode:

  • Hold down one of these key combinations on your keyboard immediately after pressing the power button to turn on your Mac, or immediately after your Mac begins to restart: Command-S for single-user mode or Command-V for verbose mode.

Upcoming USB 3.2 Specification Will Double Data...

A new USB specification has been introduced today by the USB 3.0 Promoter Group, which is comprised of Apple, HP, Intel, Microsoft, and other companies. The new USB 3.2 specification will replace the existing 3.1 specification and will double data rates to 20Gbps using new wires available if your device embraces the newest USB hardware. Mac Rumors reports: An incremental update, USB 3.2 is designed to define multi-lane operation for USB 3.2 hosts and devices. USB Type-C cables already support multi-lane operation, and with USB 3.2, hosts and devices can be created as multi-lane solutions, allowing for either two lanes of 5Gb/s or two lanes of 10Gb/s operation. With support for two lanes of 10Gb/s transfer speeds, performance is essentially doubled over existing USB-C cables. As an example, the USB Promoter Group says a USB 3.2 host connected to a USB 3.2 storage device will be capable of 2GB/sec data transfer performance over a USB-C cable certified for USB SuperSpeed 10Gb/s USB 3....

Trump says Apple will build three manufacturing...

“I spoke to [Mr. Cook], he’s promised me three big plants—big, big, big,” Mr. Trump said as part of a discussion about business-tax reform and business investment. “I said you know, Tim, unless you start building your plants in this country, I won’t consider my administration an economic success. He called me, and he said they are going forward.”

Apple declined to comment.

I guess Tim won’t be giving Trump any secret information on the next iPhone.

Apple Daily Report for July 25, 2017

The AWT News Update is on hiatus while my compadre, Steve, deals with some family issues. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

President Donald Trump said in an interview that Tim Cook has committed to build three big manufacturing plants in the U.S., a surprising statement that would help fulfill his administration’s economic goal of reviving American manufacturing. The CEO= is said to have promised to build "three big plants, beautiful plants," but little additional info is available.

The latest promotional video for Apple Music features country singer Brantley Gilbert. The black-and-white commercial shows Gilbert riding around on a...

Trump Says Apple's Tim Cook Has Promised Him He...

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Apple CEO Tim Cook has committed to build three big manufacturing plants in the U.S., a surprising statement that would help fulfill his administration's economic goal of reviving American manufacturing. From a report: Apple CEO Tim Cook called Trump to share that the iPhone-maker would do more manufacturing domestically, Trump told WSJ. "I spoke to [Mr. Cook], he's promised me three big plants -- big, big, big," Trump was quoted as saying. Apple has already said that it would start a $1 billion fund to promote advanced manufacturing jobs in the United States. With its wide network of developers, Apple has already created two million jobs in the United States, according to Cook.

Moshi Integra Lightning Cable could be the last...

Charging cables are usually pretty unimpressive; I mean, how much can you say about a cable that runs from a USB port or AC adapter to a Lightning port? Well, accessory manufacturer Moshi has come out with a cable that's so well-built it may very well be the last charging cable you'll need to buy (unless Apple decides to switch to USB-C for iOS devices...). The $24.95 Integra USB-A to Lightning Charging Cable might not be the cheapest cable on the market, but it's designed to last.

Moshi Integra Lightning Cable

Let's start with the spine of this cable, which is made of DuPont Kevlar® - the same material that's used in bulletproof vests. Moshi used this durable material so that any section of the cable can be flexed 180-degrees over 20,000 times before breaking. Next, the exterior of the cable is covered with ballistic nylon for two reasons -- prevent...

Xiaomi overtakes Apple for fourth place in the...

After six consecutive quarters of growth, Chinese smartphone shipments fell 3% to 113 million in the second quarter (Q2) 2017. China-based Huawei shipped over 23 million to lead the market for the second quarter in a row, according to the Canalys research firm. 

Oppo, a Chinese consumer electronics firm, shipped just over 21 million and had to settle for second place, despite growing 37% year on year. Vivo, an Indian tech company, held onto third place, shipping just over 16 million, losing ground on the leading pair during the quarter.

Xiaomi, a privately owned Chinese electronics company, was the standout vendor as it overtook Apple to take fourth place. It shipped just under 15 million smartphones in China, up more than 60% sequentially.

The rest of the top 10, including Apple, Samsung and Meizu, all suffered annual shipment declines this quarter. China’s smartphone market continues to consolidate, says...

R.I.P. Flash, which is on its way out in 2020

Adobe has announced that it will stop developing and and distributing Flash Player at the end of 2020 because “open standards like HTML5, WebGL and WebAssembly have matured over the past several years, most now provide many of the capabilities and functionalities that plugins pioneered and have become a viable alternative for content on the web.”

Adobe says the impending end of Flash is also due to collaboration with its “technology partners,” including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla. Adobe will continue to support Flash on a number of major OSs and browsers that currently support Flash content through the planned EOL [end-of-life]. This will include issuing regular security patches, maintaining OS and browser compatibility and adding features and capabilities as needed.

The end of Flash is overdue. In June 2016 the...

USB: the ‘iPhone 8’ has the potential for huge sales

In a note to investors — as noted by CNBC — USB said it believes the upcoming “iPhone 8” (shown in a fanciful mock-up) has the potential for huge sales because of expected upgrades from phones sold in fiscal 2015.

The Swiss bank also suggested Apple's earning report on Aug. 1 will provide a hint to the new iPhone's release date. UBS said it expects to see a surge of iPhone 6 owners upgrade next year, with the potential to make it a sales "supercycle."

"We expect a bulge of buying in F18 [fiscal 2018] followed by some growth in F19," UBS analyst Steven Milunovich said in the note. "As the iPhone matures, investors should start to better appreciate the size of the installed base, which promotes hardware and services gains."

Apple services include Apple Music subscriptions, iTunes Music, iCloud storage plans, paid apps from Apple's App Store, and Apple Care service plans, Apple Pay, etc. The services biz saw its highest revenue ever for a 13-week quarter in Apple's fiscal 2017 second quarter that ended April 1, 2017.

Credit Suisse expects services revenue to rise to $52 billion by the end of the decade "driven by a high quality, affluent, digitally transacting user base of 1.1 billion devices and around 650 million users."

Rumor: LG Display wants to make OLED displays for...

LG Display plans to invest $13.5 billion to boost output of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens over the next three years, in order to, among other things, make inroads against rival Samsung in smartphone displays, reports Reuters. Apple is one of LG Display's main clients and is predicted to adopt OLED displays for the “iPhone 8” (shown in a fanciful mock-up).

The South Korean firm is reportedly shifting its focus to OLED from liquid crystal displays (LCDs) as demand for thinner and more flexible panels surge. LG Display is the world's top LCD maker for televisions and also manufactures nearly all large OLED screens for televisions globally. But it has barely a foothold in the market for OLED smartphone screens where rival Samsung has more than 90% of the market share, notes Reuters.

So far the only product Apple makers with an OLED is...

Rumor: Apple Watch Series 3 coming in September

The next gen Apple Watch is likely to focus on improving battery life and overall performance. I’m predicting that the Apple Watch Series 3 will offer LTE networking for true iPhone independence. 

It will be offered in a round, as well as square casing, and (no surprise) be even thinner. The Apple Watch 3 also sport ambient display technology for better visibility and additional sensors for even better health and fitness tracking, according to my crystal ball.
