Samsung slammed by Chinese state TV for recall...

CCTV said a video apology Samsung issued to U.S. consumers, along with various replacement options and compensation, was in stark contrast to its treatment of those in China, where the company issued a brief statement saying most phones didn’t need to be replaced. “Samsung’s discriminatory policy has caused discontent from Chinese consumers,” it said.

Like I said yesterday: Samsung should have issued a total recall of all devices. They would have avoided issues like this and the fading consumer trust.

Researchers Ask Federal Court To Unseal Years of...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: Two lawyers and legal researchers based at Stanford University have formally asked a federal court in San Francisco to unseal numerous records of surveillance-related cases, as a way to better understand how authorities seek such powers from judges. This courthouse is responsible for the entire Northern District of California, which includes the region where tech companies such as Twitter, Apple, and Google, are based. According to the petition, Jennifer Granick and Riana Pfefferkorn were partly inspired by a number of high-profile privacy cases that have unfolded in recent years, ranging from Lavabit to Apple's battle with the Department of Justice. In their 45-page petition, they specifically say that they don't need all sealed surveillance records, simply those that should have been unsealed -- which, unfortunately, doesn't always happen automatically. The researchers wrote in their Wednesday filing: "Most surveillance...

Apple and Ireland are preparing appeals to argue that European Union (EU) competition investigators unfairly kept them in the dark during a probe that ended in a record 13 billion-euro ($14.6 billion) tax bill, reports Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people with knowledge of their case.”

The Cupertino, California-based company and the nation contend that the EU neglected to flag a shift in emphasis in the investigation, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Bloomberg says that EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager’s team insists there was never a U-turn and that it kept Apple and Ireland up to date with developments from the time the probe was opened in 2014 through Aug. 30 -- when Ireland was ordered to claw back the proceeds of alleged sweetheart tax deals.

As you may remember, Dennis went through his vast wardrobe of Apple-themed attire a few months ago, taking photos of all of the amazing shirts, hats, and other garb. Well, my collection is only half-vast, but over the next month or so I'll be providing you with photos of some of the shirts, hats, and other garb I've accumulated over the years.

The incredible Apple Logo Long Sleeve Tee. I must have another.

Today we have a basic black long-sleeve t-shirt that I picked up at the former Apple Company Store at the 1 Infinite Loop headquarters building. I'm beginning to think I'll have to head to the new store soon as this one is beginning to get a little worn out from overuse.

People are still lining up to snag a brand new iPhone 7, but that won’t stop anyone from speculating about next year’s iPhone. Why so early? Well, 2017 marks the iPhone’s 10th birthday, so Apple is reportedly gearing up to make its anniversary edition extra special.

We’ll keep track of the latest rumors and how plausible they are, and we’ll put them in one spot (this one!) so you can bookmark this link and just pop on over when you want to read the latest.

If you passed on the iPhone 7 to wait for the iPhone 8—or whatever name Apple decides to use—it sounds like next year’s phone could be the design refresh you were waiting for. Just don't expect the headphone jack to return.

Hack iOS 10, Get $1.5 Million

Reader Trailrunner7 writes: The stakes in the vulnerability acquisition and bug bounty game have just gone up several notches, with a well-known security startup now offering $1.5 million for a remote jailbreak in iOS 10.The payout was put on the table Thursday by Zerodium, a company that buys vulnerabilities and exploits for high-value target platforms and applications. The company has a set of standing prices for the information it will buy, which includes bugs and exploits for iOS, Android, Flash, Windows, and the major browsers, and the top tier of that list has been $500,000 for an iOS jailbreak. But that all changed on Thursday when Zerodium announced that the company has tripled the standing price for iOS to $1.5 million.

In the first high-profile iMessage App Store rejection we’ve seen, the developer of the Phoneys sticker pack says Apple has reached out with bad news: the company will pull the app in a week if it is not significantly changed. Phoneys (currently) features stickers that look like iMessage bubbles, effectively allowing users to replace messages from their friends with some funny alternative text.

The app hit #1 Top Paid in the iMessage App Store. Despite getting approved initially, Apple says that the store does not accept “prank apps” and the current form of the stickers violate Apple trademarks …

Angry customer uses steel ball to smash Apple Store...

This probably isn’t the best way to have your customer support complaints addressed.

On Friday, a disgruntled customer walked into the Apple Store in Dijon, France and began destroying various products with a steel ball of the kind that’s used in the classic French game Pétanque. The steel ball is hollow but still weighs about 2.5 pounds.

He is heard talking about “his consumer’s right” and citing that he’s unhappy with how Apple handled his support case. Minutes later, security turns up and tries to escort him away — but not without him trying to escape.

In the end, the team managed to stop him and have police take him into custody after running about 90 feet in one direction.

A bumper fall crop of Apple Campus 2 construction...

The end of September is upon us, and that means that the drone pilots have been out cruising over Cupertino to show the progress at Apple Campus 2. The entire place is really coming together -- solar panels cover 40% of the "ring" roof, there's only a tiny gap that doesn't have a roof covering yet, trees are starting to be planted, a lot fewer cranes are in action at the site, and so on. Maybe it's just me, though, it looks like it still has at least 6 months to go before people are in that building...

Anyway, here are three videos that look at the construction. All three are shot in 4K, so if you have a machine capable of displaying the UHD video stream, be sure to go to full-screen and enjoy! First up, one by Matthew Roberts:

Next, Duncan Sinfield has an early morning (evening?) video showing lights on in the building, creating a glowing effect. Absolutely stunning:

Hacking Elections Is Easy, Study Finds

It's no longer a question whether hackers will influence the 2016 elections in the United States -- only how much they'll be able to sway them. Leaked emails already have cost a Democratic Party chairperson her job, and the FBI last month issued a flash warning that foreign cyberadversaries had breached two state election databases. Those two states -- most likely Arizona and Illinois -- aren't alone in having their voter information compromised. Voter registration databases from all 50 states are being hawked on Deep Web marketplaces.

Zerodium also doubled, to $200,000, the amount it will pay for attacks that exploit previously unknown vulnerabilities in Google's competing Android operating system, and the group raised the amount for so-called zeroday exploits in Adobe's Flash media player to $80,000 from $50,000. After buying the working exploits, the company then sells them to its customers, which include major technology, finance, and defense corporations, as well as government agencies.

Apple reportedly wants Sharp to provide OLED...

Apple is negotiating with Sharp to secure organic LED displays for the next generation of iPhones and iPads, reports Bloomberg, quoting an unnamed “person familiar with the matter.” Any OLED supply agreement would depend on the Osaka-based company’s output capacity.

Bloomberg says the discussions stem from Apple’s desire to increase the number of suppliers for OLED screens. So far the only product Apple makers with an OLED is the Apple Watch. LG provides the smartwatch displays. iPhones and iPads use LCD technology, which offers lower manufacturing costs than OLED screens.

LCDs use a backlight behind the screen to emit light, and act as a valve allowing different amounts of this light to create the colors and images on the display. OLED is made up of many tiny LEDs, each emitting their own light and colors. They don’t...

Study: the use of fitness trackers may hamper weight...

A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association indicates that fitness trackers — a category that certainly includes the Apple Watch Series 2 — could hamper your ability to meet your weight loss goals.

The study, which took place between 2010 and 2014, included 471 randomized participants (74.5% completed the study) which were separated into two main groups. One group manually documented their physical activity at the end of the day while the other one wore automatic activity trackers which did the documentation for them.

“Among young adults with a BMI between 25 and less than 40, the addition of a wearable technology device to a standard behavioral intervention resulted in less weight loss over 24 months” according to a summary of the study. “Devices that monitor and provide feedback on physical activity may not offer an advantage over standard behavioral weight loss...

New iPhone 7 Case Brings Back the Headphone Jack

Apple removed the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, forcing users to use either Bluetooth, the Lightning port or included Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adaptor in order to listen to music through headphones. However, one company took it upon themselves to create an iPhone 7 case with a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack. The company is called Fuze and they recently launched an Indiegogo campaign that promises to bring the audio port back to the iPhone 7. The Next Web reports: To achieve this, the company is taking Apple's Lightning to 3.5mm adapter and building it straight into a case, where you can plug your headphones with "no dongles, no adapters, no problems." In addition to the audio port, the Fuze Case will also serve as a battery pack as it adds 2,400mAh of extra battery life to the iPhone 7 and 3,600mAh to the 7 Plus. It will be available in five different colors including white, black, gold, rose gold and blue. The case is currently available for $49 to "...

How to change watch faces in watchOS 3 on your Apple...

You can change the watch faces in watchOS 3 right from your Apple Watch — although it’s easier to do it on your iPhone (but we’ll cover that on Monday).

In watchOS 3, you can cycle through your watch faces by swiping left and right from the edges of the face on your Apple Watch. Before, you had to force press he current face, then swipe.

However, you can still summon up the old interface for adjusting faces by force-pressing on the current watch face. It offers some customization options. The number of options available depends on the face itself.

Conveniently, this also allows to switch faces on the fly. For instance, you can start the day with the fun Minnie Mouse face, then switch (by swiping) to the Activity face when you start to work out.

The HiRise 2 works with just about any case, including Twelve South's own BookBook. Its sliding rear support and multiple height clips support all these cases and more. Or you can use it with no case at all. 

The HiRise 2 has a footprint that’s one-third smaller than the original, saving space on your bedside or desk. It’s twice as heavy for added stability with larger devices. It comes in two new colors besides silver: “...

When will we be able to merge Apple iDs?

We're still not able to merge Apple IDs. Is it really that hard forApple to make this happen?

Back in the olden days of 2012, TUAW reader Glenn Thorpe nailed the problem when he wrote: "My Apple ID account which I use to download apps cannot be used for FaceTime nor Messages. I had to create new AppleIDs for both of these applications. The frustrating issue is that I now have three AppleIDs to manage and I am not sure of what impact this will have when I buy apps or try to perform other transactions."

There were rumors at on point that Apple was working on a solution. However, Apple's official word is still: "Apple IDs cannot be merged. You should use your preferred Apple ID from now on, but you can still access your purchased items such as music, movies, or software using your other Apple IDs."

An Apple ID is the email address and password you use as a login for just about everything you do with Apple, including using iCloud to store your content,...

Apple negotiating with Sharp to supply OLED displays...

Apple currently uses LCD display technology for all of its iPhones but this appears to be changing next year with the rumored radically-new iPhone in 2017, following the iPhone 7’s smaller, iterative, design changes. Many reports have said that the next-generation iPhones, dubbed ‘iPhone 8’, will feature OLED displays for the first time. More indicators for this has come to light today with Bloomberg reporting that Apple is negotiating with Sharp to produce OLED panels for its phones.

A controversial broker of security exploits is offering $1.5 million (£1.2 million) for attacks that work against fully patched iPhones and iPads, a bounty that's triple the size of its previous one.

Zerodium also doubled, to $200,000, the amount it will pay for attacks that exploit previously unknown vulnerabilities in Google's competing Android operating system, and the group raised the amount for so-called zeroday exploits in Adobe's Flash media player to $80,000 from $50,000. After buying the working exploits, the company then sells them to government entities, which use them to spy on suspected criminals, terrorists, enemies, and...

Early Reviews Fuel High Hopes for Civilization VI

Early hands-on previews of Civilization VI came out Thursday, and those who had a chance to partake in the turn-based PC game found that it successfully built on the foundation of the past versions, while bringing some fresh changes to the experience. It has been 25 years since the Sid Meier classic debuted to great acclaim, and after 2010's Civilization V raised the bar, it seemed that developer Firaxis would have to pull out all the stops with the next iteration.

As Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have started to reach more customers, we’ve been getting more and more reports that users are facing a multitude of issues when pairing with their Bluetooth devices. With every iOS and iPhone release, issues are bound to arise.

Though one that stems on the wireless future that Apple has so courageously laid out makes this one all the more impactful. A majority of the reports appear to be coming from users with in-car Bluetooth systems, but we’re also hearing users facing issues from frequently dropped connections, to devices that will show they’re paired even when they’re not. Are you seeing any of these issues on your devices?

Bounty for iOS jailbreak exploit jumps to $1.5...

The value for zero-day exploits targeting Apple's iOS software is jumping. On Thursday, a company called Zerodium began offering as much as US $1.5 million for them.

Zerodium is the same company that offered $1 million last year for an exclusive iOS zero-day exploit that can remotely jailbreak a device. However, that bounty was only temporary, and it was eventually awarded last November.

Zerodium's new $1.5 million bounty is asking for a remote jailbreak exploit targeting iOS 10. The bounty will be offered all year long, Chaouki Bekrar, the company's CEO, said in an email. The company's original offer was a maximum of $500,000.

How the Apple Watch will take this NYC restaurant...

Danny Meyer is best known as the mastermind behind Shake Shack, the restaurant chain that handily beats In n Out for the best fast food burger in America. (Bold words, yes, and I stand by them.) But he’s also at the forefront of hospitality industry trends, eliminating tipping at most of his restaurants and offering paid parental leave company-wide. Now he’s bringing the Apple Watch into his rebooted Union Square Cafe in Manhattan to level up on customer service in some unexpected ways.

Servers won’t be using the watch to put your orders through, and maybe you’ll never even see restaurant staff using it—the watch is more of a behind-the-scenes device, despite being very visibly strapped to employees’ wrists. According to Eater, Union Square Cafe’s managers and sommeliers will use the watch, which is integrated with the restaurant’s ResyOS back-of-house iPad-based platform, to perform a...
