Microsoft releases Pix, goes toe to toe with built-...

Microsoft is attempting to hone in on the iPhone camera’s turf.

The tech giant’s research arm has launched Pix, which enhances the photos that users take in a variety of ways, on Wednesday morning. The app is designed to make photos look better and even improves on Apple’s Live Photos ability to capture scenes that have moving elements in them.

The free app is now available on the iOS App Store and is particularly well-suited to take pictures of people, and is built to make adjustments to a photo on the fly as the scene changes. That way, the exposure of an image should always be tuned to the right conditions. It recognizes faces and uses Microsoft’s Hyperlapse technology to stabilize video shot with the app as well.

The app works to take a burst of photos...

Word, however, is getting the biggest new features -- Researcher and Editor -- to improve your writing. "As its name implies, Researcher is designed to help the user find reliable sources of information by using the Bing Knowledge Graph to search for sources, and it will properly cite them in the Word document," reports Network World. "[Editor] builds on the already-existing spellchecker and thesaurus to offer suggestions on how to improve your overall writing. In addition to the wavy red line under a misspelled word and the wavy blue line under bad grammar, there will be a gold line for writing style." The new features are expected to be available later this year. In addition to the two new features added to PowerPoint last year -- Designer and Morph, Microsoft is offering Zoom, a feature that lets you easily create "...

Another big traffic sign just appeared, pointing straight the Apple Car: Longtime Apple executive Bob Mansfield is reportedly now in charge of Project Titan, which is the code-name for the Apple Car. That's great news if you are eager to see this thing really happen, although the rumor does come along with a new ship estimation of 2021. Hopefully this won't be one of those things that's always five years down the road.

One Billion iPhones Have Been Sold, Apple Says

Apple announced on Wednesday that it has sold its one billionth iPhone handset. The milestone comes nine years after the iPhone was first introduced. The phone has unarguably shaped the smartphone industry and bolstered the apps market. In a statement, Tim Cook said: iPhone has become one of the most important, world-changing and successful products in history. It's become more than a constant companion. iPhone is truly an essential part of our daily life and enables much of what we do throughout the day. Last week we passed another major milestone when we sold the billionth iPhone. We never set out to make the most, but we've always set out to make the best products that make a difference. Thank you to everyone at Apple for helping change the world every day.

Apple celebrates sales of one billion iPhones

At an employee meeting in Cupertino, California, this morning, CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple recently sold the billionth iPhone.

 

"iPhone has become one of the most important, world-changing and successful products in history. It's become more than a constant companion. iPhone is truly an essential part of our daily life and enables much of what we do throughout the day," Cook said. “Last week we passed another major milestone when we sold the billionth iPhone. We never set out to make the most, but we’ve always set out to make the best products that make a difference. Thank you to everyone at Apple for helping change the world every day.”

Dean Hager, CEO ofJAMF Software, told AppleWorldToday:  "Apple's sale of its one billionth iPhone is a major milestone, no doubt. You could argue the iPhone's success is the result of Apple's innovation, apps, and alliances. Importantly, Apple developed its iPhone by strategizing around the user - humanizing...

Apple has sold fewer iPhones in the last two quarters than it did last year, but it's still selling plenty of them. Apple CEO Tim Cook proclaimed today that the company has sold one billion iPhones since the launch of the original device back in 2007.

Recent slump aside, the iPhone's astronomical growth rate means that nearly half of those iPhones have been sold within the last two years; about 472 million of those phones were sold between Q3 of 2014 and Q3 of 2016.

For his part, Cook expects the iPhone's slump to be temporary, and he has blamed the year-over-year drop on the...

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.

The app also offers the ability to perform backups to local hard drives, SFTP servers, and NAS boxes. Duplicity’s graphical user interface features one-page backup configuration.

Duplicacy 1.0 is free for personal use, and is available worldwide exclusively through the Duplicacy website. Commercial users pay $2.00 per month per computer. A Windows...

Apple has sold 1 billion iPhones

Apple announced on Wednesday that the company has sold 1 billion iPhones. That’s a huge milestone, but its timing is strangely awkward. Tim Cook told employees in Cupertino that the billionth iPhone was sold last week, but this announcement comes just one day after Apple’s Q3 2016 saw disappointing iPhone sales, declining to 40.4 million units sold, from 47.5 million in the year-ago quarter.

“Last week we passed another major milestone when we sold the billionth iPhone,” Cook said in a press release. “We never set out to make the most, but we’ve always set out to make the best products that make a difference. Thank you to everyone at Apple for helping change the world every day.”

New York DA Wants Apple, Google To Roll Back...

An anonymous reader writes: Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. called on Apple and Google to weaken their device encryption, arguing that thousands of crimes remained unsolved because no one can crack into the perpetrators' phones. Vance, speaking at the International Conference on Cyber Security here, said that law enforcement officials did not need an encryption "backdoor," sidestepping a concern of computer-security experts and device makers alike. Instead, Vance said, he only wanted the encryption standards rolled back to the point where the companies themselves can decrypt devices, but police cannot. This situation existed until September 2014, when Apple pushed out iOS 8, which Apple itself cannot decrypt. "Tim Cook was absolutely right when he told his shareholders that the iPhone changed the world," Vance said. "It's changed my world. It's letting criminals conduct their business with the knowledge we can't listen to them."

As shown in Apple's SEC 8-K filing, Apple's R&D spending increased by over 25% year-over-year in its latest fiscal quarter to $2.56 billion. As a percentage of revenue (at 6%) it’s the highest it's ever been. It’s spent $7.5 billion on research for the year, and is on track to outpace last year’s spend, according to its earnings statement.

During a call with analysts and media reps about Apple’s latest financials, CEO Tim Cook was asked about the amount of R&D spending on new products rather than refining existing products. He wouldn't specify an exact number, he did state that there was "quite a bit" of investment in new products and services.

My two cents: USB-C won’t be added to the MacBook...

DigiTimes is reporting that the USB Type-C interface that debuted with the 12-inch MacBook will be added to the MacBook Air. I think the publication is wrong; here’s why.

I’m predicting the MacBook Air has reached the end of its life. I think it will be discontinued, and Apple will simply offer the MacBook (for consumers) and the MacBook Pro (for, well, professionals). What’s more, I think Apple will offer a “low end” 11-inch MacBook for $999 while increasing the 12-inch model’s screen to 13 inches, while maintaining the same price point. 

I expect the MacBook Pro will continue to be offered in 13-inch and 15-inch models. Finally, I expect that we’ll see new Mac laptops in late August — unless Apple decides to delay the release until November, so that the notebooks can sport the latest Kaby Lake-S processors from Intel.

The next-gen iPhone could feature a capacitive Home button as well as a Space Black color option.

A new report from Macotakara which cites supply chain sources states that the iPhone 7 will feature a capacitive Home button with support for 3D Touch. This means that the home button would not actually be a moving part, though users would still feel as if they were pushing a button thanks to haptic feedback similar to that of the Force Touch trackpad on recent MacBooks.

The updated Home button would also be flush with the front of the iPhone. This, paired with the removal of the headphone jack, would go a long way towards seeing that the next-gen iPhone was even more sealed and waterproof.

While T-Mobile users have been able to stream music from Apple Music for the past year without it counting against their mobile data caps, the mobile carrier has now added Apple Music to its Binge On program, meaning that video from Apple Music will no longer count against the caps. This exemption includes music videos, as well as future video content on Apple Music, such as the upcoming “Carpool Karaoke” series from CBS.

External Link: Apple Music Scores “Carpool Karaoke”...

First, there was “Planet of the Apps,” and now Apple continues its foray into original content by nabbing CBS’s upcoming “Carpool Karaoke” series, a spinoff of the popular “The Late Late Show with James Corden” bit, in which he drives celebrities around as they sing songs. Although it doesn’t sound as if Corden will host the new show, it is, nonetheless, a pretty big “get” for Apple Music.

Following the earnings report yesterday, Apple company stock has popped 7% as investors were pleased with Apple’s guidance for the September quarter and total revenue drop for fiscal Q3 was lower than anticipated.

This means Apple stock is back into triple digits, after fleeting the $101 mark briefly last week. The stock opened this morning at $103, up significantly from yesterdays close os ~$97

Apple is working on its first retail store in Mexico

Apple plans to open its first retail store in Mexico later this year at the Centro Santa Fe mall, reports AppleInsider

“The Santa Fe location is expected to feature a ‘next generation’ design language with space for a Genius Bar, custom wooden cabinetry for accessories, iconic wooden tables and an ample sales floor,” the article adds. “Whether the outlet will rate the 37-foot, custom built TV display Apple has been installing as part of larger U.S. and international Apple Store renovations is unknown.”

Apple is also planning its first retail store in Taiwan. With the opening of these stores, Apple will have 486 retail stores in 20 countries and an online store available in 39 countries. What’s more, India Prime Minister Narendra Modi is reportedly clearing the way for Apple to open its first retail store in that country....

∞ iCloud Tabs not working in your macOS Sierra beta...

While my macOS Sierra beta has been pretty rock solid, there is one feature that has stopped working for me. If I click the iCloud Tabs button (the icon of two overlaid squares in the upper-right corner of the Safari window), Safari should open a view that shows all the Safari tabs in my current window, as well as the Safari tabs in my other nearby iOS devices.

For me, the macOS tabs show up just fine, but the iCloud tabs do not appear. I depend on this feature, so I dug around the net to find a workaround while I waited for the Sierra beta that fixed this problem. […]

Australia’s three biggest banks want their apps...

Australia's three biggest banks, including the top lender, National Australia Bank, have lodged a joint application with anti-trust regulators seeking approval to collectively negotiate with Apple to install their own electronic payments applications on iPhones, reports Reuters.

Apple, which operates its Apple Pay mobile payment service, doesn’t allow third-party electronic payment apps to be installed on the smartphone. The banks are seeking to be able to negotiate jointly for access to Apple's phones without themselves being accused of violating anti-competition law, according to Reuters.

On a related note, last November banks in Australia said they weren’t too keen on the idea of giving Apple a bit of the US$2 billion they earn annually from interchange fees, noted the Sydney Morning Herald. In the US, Apple earns close to 15¢ on every $100 of...

AAPL breaks $100 in after-hours trading, as analysts...

Update: That $103 price is holding steady in early trading this morning.

While Apple’s earnings weren’t fantastic, with particularly bad news in China, the market view appears to be that the numbers were better than feared. The stock price climbed sharply in the first hour of after-hours trading, jumping from $97.34 to more than $103, and has so far maintained this new level.

Business Insider did a roundup of analyst reactions, and found that with the single exception of Deutsche Bank, which rates the stock a Hold, all the...

The tireless, automated bots that will play Pokémon...

One of the first things I thought of when I first experienced Pokémon Go was how dependent the game was on location and how easy that would be to spoof. It didn’t take long for developers to bring that idea to life:

A new wave of PC-based Pokémon Go “bots” take the hacking a step further, spoofing locations and automating actions to essentially play the game for you while you sit in the comfort of your own home.

There are a number of competing bots out there, from the open source Necrobot to the pre-compiled Pokébuddy to MyGoBot, which recently started charging $4.99 for its automation tool following a three-hour free trial. All of them work on the same basic principles, sending artificial data to the Pokémon Go servers to simulate an extremely efficient, entirely tireless player.

This same sort of thing happened in the early days of World of Warcraft. It took some time, but the folks at Blizzard figured out how to tell if robots were playing for you and took a...

Apple’s employee number one

Craig Cannon, interviewing Apples’ first employee (beyond Steve Jobs and Woz), Bill Fernandez:

Craig: So at what point do Woz and Jobs come together and decide that they want to start working on Apple?

Bill: Okay, well during this Hewlett-Packard period when Woz and I were both there, Woz in the after hours designed his own Pong game. Pong was the first really popular, you know, video game that bars and pizza shops and restaurants could buy and put it in stores and people would come and put quarters in and play. So he built his own circuitry and used it with a small black and white TV set as the display.

Then a couple of things happened. He started working on building his own computer and he started attending the Homebrew Computer Club that was happening at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, SLAC.

So all of those things happened at the same time and then as his computer came together he would take it and show it off...

Australia’s three biggest banks are claiming that Apple is in breach of antitrust laws by not allowing third-party mobile payment apps to use the NFC chip used by Apple Pay for contactless payment.

Reuters reports that the banks have initially requested permission from regulators to jointly negotiate with Apple – ironically, because they might themselves be in breach of antitrust laws if they clubbed together to negotiate without clearance to do so …

Motorola confirms that they will not commit to...

Ars Technica:

When we recently reviewed the Moto Z, we said that the device would not be getting Android’s monthly security updates. Motorola doesn’t make this information officially available anywhere, but when we asked Motorola reps at the Moto Z launch event if the company would commit to the monthly updates, we were flatly told “no.”

And:

Motorola has clarified the update situation of the Moto Z and Moto G4, calling Android’s monthly security updates “difficult” and deciding not to commit to them.

Tough to say no to an update that patches a known security vulnerability.

From Moto:

We strive to push security patches as quickly as possible. However, because of the amount of testing and approvals that are necessary to deploy them, it’s difficult to do this on a monthly basis for all our devices. It is often most efficient for us to bundle security updates in a scheduled Maintenance Release (MR) or OS upgrade.

That delay is no small...

Top Australian banks pursue collective boycott of...

Graham Spencer, writing for MacStories:

In a rather extraordinary move, four of Australia’s largest banks have written to Australia’s competition regulator requesting permission to join together in a collective boycott whilst they negotiate with third-party mobile wallet services including Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay.

And:

At the heart of their request is the claim that third party wallet providers have the power to “impose highly restrictive terms and conditions”. The banks point out that 90% of smartphones sold in Australia run iOS or Android, and Samsung is the leading manufacturer of Android phones. Therefore, they claim, Google has significant bargaining power over Android, Samsung over Galaxy phones, and Apple over iPhones. But it is Apple that the banks say “has particularly significant bargaining power in negotiations relating to Apple Pay due to its control of both a key operating system and key mobile hardware”. They point out that in...

Horcrux makes it a breeze to backup, migrate email...

By Aaron Lee

Questions about data sovereignty, data security and cloud computing are important issues are important for every person who has an email account — and that includes you. Technichor's Horcrux Email Backup for Mac users lets you automatically keep you data rather than surrendering it to third party services.

The data stored with some email providers actually belongs to the provider, not to the user. As a result, some folks have been surprised to discover that they've lost access to their data without any recourse.

Horcrux is a background app that takes daily snapshots of email account states similar to the way Apple's Time Machine works with your Mac. The app allows you to browse the emails and undelete specific emails. In case you accidentally delete an important email, you can undelete it with a click.

Another feature of Horcrux is the option it gives people to change email providers without losing all prior data. Horcrux...

While most of the numbers announced yesterday were broadly in line with analyst expectations, there was one particularly disappointing element: revenue from China. This was down 29% on the previous quarter, and a full 33% year-on-year – from $13.2B in Q3 2015 to $8.8B the same quarter this year.

CEO Tim Cook pointed to slowing growth in the Chinese economy as a factor, but there are two other factors at play …

Apple remains optimistic after a tough Q3 2016

Another quarter brings with it Apple financial results–nearly $8 billion in profit this time, despite a whole lot of tough year-over-year sales and revenue comparisons. But as a part of the results we also get the chance to hear directly from Apple’s executives, in the quarterly ritual of the conference call with analysts. There’s always good stuff to be gleaned from this call, and this quarter was no exception. Here’s what we learned.

Optimism about the iPhone buying cycle

Combine the changes to the way people buy smartphones (especially in the United States) with the sales fall-off from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone 6s, and a lot of people are worried that the buying cycle of the iPhone is going to be elongated. In other words, while your average smartphone buyer might have purchased a new phone every two years in the past,...

Digital payments using wearables devices such as the combination of Apple Pay and the Apple Watch will drive more than $500 billion in transaction volume annually by 2020, according to Tractica. That will be up from $3.1 billion in 2015.

The market intelligence firm anticipates that, by 2020, wearable payments will represent approximately 20% of the total mobile proximity transaction volume and about 1% of total cashless transactions in retail.

“Wearable payments are just getting started,” says research director Aditya Kaul. “Apple Pay for the Apple Watch is the first big effort at enabling payments with the wrist.”
