Timely payments can keep you from being unable to...

A friend of mine who does tech support recently helped a friend who couldn’t access anything that was stored in her iCloud account. Anything that she has purchased, but which wasn’t already stored on her local machine, wouldn’t download or play. 

This included movies, music, and apps. While trying to find the problem, my tech friend says that a pop-up message appeared, saying the lady’s billing information was incorrect and that she needed to correct it (she’d changed banks and had a new card). After entering the new information, everything worked just fine. Apple had tried, unsuccessfully, to bill her for the 99 cent iCloud storage plan. As soon as the 99 cent payment cleared, everything was working again.

The moral of the story: 99 cents paid on time can prevent you from having any access to hundred of dollars of assets you purchase from Apple. I’m not talking about new services or buying new products. I’m talking about Apple keeping all of your digital assets “...

Apple releases first macOS High Sierra public beta

If you’re feeling brave, the macOS High Sierra Public Beta has just been released.

Apple on Thursday seeded the first macOS High Sierra public beta, allowing non-developers to download and test the update for the first time since it was introduced at the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 5. The first public beta of macOS High Sierra corresponds to the second developer beta, which was updated this morning.

Beta testers can also sign up to be able to download the macOS High Sierra beta via the Software Update feature in the Mac App Store program.

macOS High Sierra is designed to improve and refine macOS Sierra. Along with a new, more efficient file system designed for modern storage, the update introduces Metal 2, the next-generation version of Apple’s Metal graphics API with support for machine learning, external GPUs, and VR content creation.

As always, it’s wise to have a full Time Machine backup of your current configuration before...

Apple wins another patent for a head-mounted display

Apple has been granted another patent (number 20170187855) for a head-mounted display. This one involves retaining a portable electronic device — almost certainly an iPhone — with the display.

The invention would allow you to couple and decouple a portable electronic device such as a handheld portable electronic device with a separate head-mounted device, temporarily integrating the separate devices into a single unit). The iPhone may be physically coupled to the head-mounted device such that it can be worn on the user's head. 

The iPhone may be operatively coupled to the head-mounted device such that the portable electronic device and head mounted device can communicate and operate with one another. Each device may be allowed to extend its features and/or services to the other device for the purpose of enhancing, increasing and/or eliminating redundant functions between the head-mounted device and the portable electronic device.

Perfect Ten

In January 2007, 26 minutes into his Macworld Expo keynote address, Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone with his justly-famous “three revolutionary products” framing:

This is a day I’ve been looking forward to for
two-and-a-half years.

Every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along that
changes everything. … One’s very fortunate if you get to work on
just one of these in your career.

Apple’s been very fortunate. It’s been able to introduce a few of
these into the world. In 1984, we introduced the Macintosh. It
didn’t just change Apple, it changed the whole computer industry.
In 2001, we introduced the first iPod, and it didn’t just change
the way we all listen to music, it changed the entire music
industry.

Well, today, we’re introducing three revolutionary products of
this class.

The first one is a widescreen iPod with touch...

Vintage Apples: The Original iPhone Launch on June...

On June 29, 2007, I was one of those many people around the country who was standing in line at an Apple Store to try to get one of the first iPhones. The purchase was going to be a change for me; Cingular (now AT&T) didn't allow users to swap SIMs between devices -- something I needed to do at the time -- but since it was the sole carrier at launch of the iPhone, I decided to part ways with T-Mobile. 

At the Aspen Grove Apple Store in Littleton, CO, there was a lot of anticipation. Some people in line were holding spaces for others who would arrive at the official launch time (which I think was 5 PM), and the line grew longer as the day went by. It was such a new experience to have a line for an electronic product that all of the local news stations sent crews by to interview the people in line.

In 2007 I hadn't started writing for TUAW yet, and had my own site called The iPhone Ranch, so all...

But it does have several new features, including a new file system, smoother video playback and support for HEVC video, and improved Siri. The Photos app and Safari also have improvements.

Apple celebrated the 10th anniversary of its iconic iPhone on Thursday. Since former CEO Steve Jobs debuted the original device, the company has gone on to sell more than a billion handsets worldwide, and the iPhone has become one of the most successful product categories in the electronics industry. The iPhone proved to be a major disrupter in the mobile phone category after its unveiling on June 29, 2007. At the time, the industry was dominated by companies such as Nokia, Motorola, Ericsson, BlackBerry maker Research In Motion, and Palm.

Munster’s Model

Gene Munster, now at Loup Ventures, has published a 5-year forecast for Apple:

Our best guess is that Apple Glasses, an AR-focused wearable, will
be released mid FY20. This is based on the significant resources
Apple is putting into AR, including ARKit and the recent
SensoMotoric Instruments acquisition. We believe Apple see’s
[sic] the AR future as a combination of the iPhone and some form
of a wearable.

Dedicated AR glasses don’t make much sense for mainstream, daily-use, augmented reality. (They make perfect sense for specialized use, like the way Boeing is using Google Glass today to help assemble airplanes.) The phone is the perfect form factor for casual augmented reality — the camera is great, the display is great, and we all...

External Link: 10 Years Later, iPhone Creators Worry...

During a panel at design firm IDEO, three former Apple employees gathered to discuss the iPhone’s impact after 10 years. All agreed that they’re concerned by society’s addiction to smartphones. “I don’t feel good about the distraction. It’s certainly an unintended consequence,” said Greg Christie, who led Apple’s human interface team. Bas Ording, who designed much of the iPhone’s multi-touch interface, said, “The positive is that it’s easy to use, so a lot of people can use it. The downside is too many people are staring at their phones. I probably do it, too.” And input engineer Brian Huppi, who helped develop the iPhone’s touchscreen, worried about how smartphone use is implicated in automobile accidents, saying “I’ve got to believe there’s just so many accidents on the road now from people looking at their phones.” However, there was also consensus that the iPhone has been as significant of a change as radio, television, and the Internet were, and that we’ll eventually adapt to...

Koogeek has officially released its new HomeKit-enabled Wi-Fi Smart LED Light Bulb, the latest in its ever-expanding line of Apple-friendly accessories.

Apple has to get over its privacy hang-ups and...

Eric Jackson, CNBC:

Apple announced recently that it had hired two big Sony TV executives to head up Apple’s original video strategy. It’s the strongest signal yet that Apple has grand plans to offer its own slate of original video content to compete with the likes of Netflix, Amazon and HBO.

Yet as Apple brings more high-quality content to its users, it’s likely to highlight a growing dilemma: Is it going to start offering better services to users with less privacy, or continue offering inferior services with strong privacy?

The title is provocative and, I think, needlessly so. I believe Apple is protecting our privacy, sees that as a fundamental principal. But Eric does make some interesting points, worth reading:

On Ben Thompson’s Exponent podcast from two weeks back — “Fruitful Clapping” — he discusses how Siri stops using your utterances/voice queries after 6 months. That’s problematic to improve Siri’s algorithm. You can’t compare utterances today...

June 29, 2007: Waiting at the San Francisco and...

Ten years ago today, folks like our own Lee Hutchinson waited (in line or online) for the first iPhone's formal release. We've been examining the product's impact all week as it turns 10, and today we couldn't help but resurface our version of those infamous "look at that line, tho" stories from a decade ago. These pieces originally ran on June 29, 2007.

CINCINNATI, Ohio—Everyone else is covering the iPhone line in budding metropoli (is that a word?) euch as New York City, San Francisco, and Chicago. I hear there were 50+ people in line for the iPhone at the Michigan Avenue Apple Store in downtown Chicago as of 5am. Well, we thought we'd do something different (OK, maybe we had to because we were going to that darn...

iPad Pro plus Mac is a whole greater than the sum of...

Carolina Milanesi, Tech.Pinions:

If you insist on looking at iOS 11+iPad Pro=PC you might miss the opportunity for this combo to live up to its full potential. I know for many PCs and Macs are synonymous of work and productivity, therefore my suggestion to start looking at the iPad Pro differently is missed on them. Yet, I promise you, there is a difference between wanting to replicate what you have been doing on a PC and wanting to understand if the iPad Pro can fit your workflow or even if it could help your workflow change to better fit your needs.

A lot of ink has been spilled on the topic of making the iPad Pro your main computer, replacing your Mac or PC. But Carolina makes the point that the iPad Pro, combined with iOS 11 (and that’s important), has now evolved into a device with distinct advantages, depending on your workflow.

Drag and drop is a good example:

This is possibly the best example of a feature that despite sharing the same name on the...

Apple adds to its hand based gesture patents

Patently Apple:

Last week Patently Apple posted a report titled “Apple invents a 3D Depth Mapping Camera for Hand Gesturing Interfaces for Future Macs & Smartglasses.” It’s a recurring theme (one, two and three) from Apple’s PrimeSense team from Israel. Today another such patent filing has surfaced titled “Gesture based User Interface,” based on hand gestures.

There’s more detail in the post and, of course, in the patents themselves. But in a nutshell, 3D mapping cameras and a host of hand gestures are likely in Apple’s future, along with tracking software for your Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Glasses.

Tumblr’s unclear future

Brian Feldman, New York Magazine:

The future of Tumblr is still an open question. The site is enormously popular among the coveted youth crowd — that’s partly why then-CEO Marissa Mayer paid $1 billion for the property in 2013 — but despite a user base near the size of Instagram’s, Tumblr never quite figured out how to make money at the level Facebook has led managers and shareholders to expect.

And:

For a long time, its founder and CEO David Karp was publicly against the idea of inserting ads into users’ timelines. (Other experiments in monetization, like premium options, never caught on: It’s tough to generate revenue when your most active user base is too young to have a steady income.) Even once the timeline became open to advertising, it was tough to find clients willing to brave the sometimes-porny waters of the Tumblr Dashboard.

And:

It is rare, but not at all unprecedented, for a site to reach Tumblr’s size, prominence, and level of...

There have been 15 different iPhones, from the first one that went on sale on this day back in 2007 to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus last year.

Between 2010 and 2015, Apple followed a consistent ‘tick-tock’ pattern: a new design one year, and new internals plus additional features the following year. For example, the iPhone 4 – a radical new design at the time – was released in 2010, while the following year saw the iPhone 4s. The 4s offered some worthwhile hardware upgrades (including an 8MP camera capable of 1080p video) along with Siri …

Greenlight Financial Technology, Inc.,  has announced that the Greenlight smart debit card for kids now works internationally, and also integrates with Apple Pay. 

Effective immediately, Greenlight's smart debit card for kids can be used internationally in over 120 countries. With summer approaching, kids traveling abroad for vacation or to study can use their Greenlight debit cards instead of carrying cash.

In addition to its expanded international capabilities, Greenlight's smart debit card for kids now integrates with Apple Pay. As a result, kids don't need to have the physical Greenlight card in order to make a purchase; they just need their iPhones. 

Apple Pay is currently available in 15 countries: Australia, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and USA.

The iPhone Turns 10

"Every once in awhile a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything," said co-founder and former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, as he kickstarted the iPhone keynote. Ten years ago, thousands of people around the world listened to him in a mock turtleneck talk about a phone. They liked it so much that they decided to wait outside Apple stores for hours on end to buy one. Little did anyone know the phone -- called the iPhone -- would go on to revolutionize, in the truest sense of the word, the smartphone industry as we know it. From an Economist article: No product in recent history has changed people's lives more. Without the iPhone, ride-hailing, photo-sharing, instant messaging and other essentials of modern life would be less widespread. Shorn of cumulative sales of 1.2bn devices and revenues of $1trn, Apple would not hold the crown of the world's largest listed company. Thousands of software developers would be poorer, too: the apps they have written for the smartphone make...

Apple granted another patent for a gesture-based...

Apple has been granted another patent (number 20170185161) for a “gesture-based user interface” that hints at gesture controls for Macs, Apple TVs and home appliances. The interface interface includes a movement monitor configured to monitor a user's hand and to provide a signal based on movements of the hand. 

A processor is configured to provide at least one interface state in which a cursor is confined to movement within a single dimension region responsive to the signal from the movement monitor, and to actuate different commands responsive to the signal from the movement monitor and the location of the cursor in the single dimension region.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that systems based on identifying hand gestures allow a wide range of inputs and can be used, for example, for text entry and for three dimensional control of animation in real time, such as in a virtual reality program running on a computer.

Apple says that hand gestures may also be...

Apple's now-signature product has made a lasting mark not only on our communications, but on many unexpected walks of life. This week as the iPhone turns 10, we're examining its impact and revisiting the device that changed it all.

Next-gen iPhone rumored to include faster 10W...

This could be nifty.

On Wednesday, Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis stated in a research note said the so-called “iPhone 8” will come bundled with a 10W power adapter with a USB-C connector and an integrated USB-C Power Delivery chip.

The Power Delivery chip, which is rumored to be incorporated into both the next-gen iPhone as well as its 10W power adapter, will be the same CYPD2104 chip found in Apple’s new 10.5-inch iPad Pro and is thought to offer faster device charging functionality.

The statement reads as follows, with minor edits for clarity:

We believe that in the iPhone 8, Apple likely includes Cypress Semiconductor’s USB-C Power Delivery chip in the phone and an additional chip within the power brick in box (likely a new 10W, which would use a more integrated solution with Cypress Power Delivery).

It’s thought that the next-gen iPhone would be capable of fast charging via a Lightning to USB-C cable cable connected to the new 10W power...

Dummy video offers detailed look at purported next-...

This might be the closest approximation of the next-gen iPhone.

Following scores of renderings, dummy models, and design leaks, the cool cats at OnLeaks and Tiger Mobiles have teamed up to present an iPhone 8 dummy model with an edge-to-edge display, a top bar that will accommodate the front-facing camera and sensors, a vertical dual-lens rear camera, and a glossy black chassis made from glass with a matching and indistinguishable steel band around the edges.

The dummy model is similar to that featured in previous leaks, but is closer to what the rumor mill and leaked design drawings have indicated. As such, the next-gen iPhone is thought to incorporate a slim, almost bezel-free design with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor built into the display of the device.

The handset purportedly measures 71mm wide, 144mm long, and 7.5mm thick, which matches up with previous size estimates we’ve seen leaked. At present, the iPhone 7 measures in at 67.1mm wide, 138.3mm long...

Apple’s first store in Taiwan opens Saturday

Apple Taipei 101 opens Saturday at 11 a.m., bringing Apple’s products, services and in-store experiences to customers in Taiwan for the first time. It will host new “Today at Apple” programs, including more than 60 free hands-on sessions designed for customers of all ages.

Earlier this month Apple announced the location with a barricade of hand-cut fabric by Taiwanese artist Yang Shih-Yi that depicts the Banyan tree, a traditional meeting place. Stickers of Yang Shih-Yi’s design are now available on the App Store for iMessage.

The store features Apple’s latest store design. The Forum, centered around the video wall, is a vibrant gathering space and home to the new “Today at Apple” sessions. Avenues, inspired by window displays along a shopping street, line the store walls with interactive displays dedicated to music, creativity, photography, apps...

Tim Cook explained that the reason Apple makes iPhones in China has little to do with the low wages there and everything to do with the local skillset, with the company’s suppliers echoing this point. But even if Apple bowed to political pressure...

How to use AutoFill for credit cards, contacts,...

With AutoFill, Safari can automatically fill in your credit card information, contact information, passwords, and more in the Safari web browser on macOS Sierra. 

It can automatically fill in information from any contact in Contacts. It can also generate a secure password when you need to create one. Safari highlights autofilled fields in yellow.

One big advantage of doing this: if you set up iCloud Keychain on your Mac and other devices, Safari automatically fills in saved user names, passwords, and credit card info on all those devices. This is a great time-saving features.

To fill in your credit card info, you can choose from a list of your stored credit cards. You can add or remove stored credit cards. Safari can autofill your account name, account number, and expiration date. For security, Safari doesn’t store the credit card security code. You must enter it manually each time you use the card on a website.
