Report: Apple Watch Series 3 late this year;...

A supply-chain report backs an earlier claim that the next-generation Apple Watch – which would be dubbed the Series 3 if Apple retains its existing naming scheme – is scheduled for launch in the second half of this year. It also suggests that Apple will continue to offer a choice of two generations of Apple Watch at different price points.

Digitimes reports that while Quanta will remain the sole supplier of the new model, a new supplier, Compal Electronics, will be added to the roster to continue production of older models …

Thursday night NFL games now stream on Amazon Prime...

Thursday night NFL games streamed with stunning success on Twitter last year, but for the season, football’s jumping ship. The NFL and Amazon announced they’ve reached a $50 million agreement for streaming rights to 10 Thursday Night Football games for the 2017 season—a five-fold increase over the $10 million Twitter paid for last year’s games.

The agreement’s a major win for Amazon, which has been pushing hard to expand its TV offerings. It’s a bummer for folks who’ve ditched cable, though. While Twitter streamed TNF games to the world, making them freely available to cord-cutters even if watchers weren’t Twitter users, Amazon’s NFL livestreams will be limited to paying Amazon Prime subscribers. An Amazon Prime subscription costs $100 per year.

Rumor: ‘Apple Watch 3’ to ship in the second half of...

The “Apple Watch 3” is expected to ship in the second half of the year, according to DigiTimes Research. Based on past releases, this makes sense. The report says that Taiwan’s Compal Electronics will join Quanta Computers, also based in Taiwan, in making the Apple smartwatch.

Apple is estimated to have shipped 11.9 million Apple Watches in 2016. This gives the Cupertino, California-based company 49% of overall smartwatch shipments, according to the Canalys research group.

The fanciful images accompanying this article are courtesy of “Daily Star” and “SmartStockNews.”

Susquehanna Financial Group semiconductor analyst Christopher Rolland said in a March note to clients that the next gen Apple Watch will include a SIM card and support LTE (a standard for high-speed wireless communication for mobile phones and data terminals).

Sweden-based Scania is Introducing Apple CarPlay

Scania — a major Swedish automotive industry manufacturer of commercial vehicles, specifically heavy trucks and buses — is introducing Apple CarPlay to the new truck generation's infotainment system. The company is among the first in the industry to offer Apple CarPlay in heavy trucks.   

"Scania's infotainment system will work with Apple CarPlay, the smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while on the move," says Björn Fahlström, vice president, Product Management, Scania Trucks. "Apple CarPlay support is being introduced in June 2017, and earlier devices can be updated, provided that they have voice recognition. By intro­ducing this functionality, we will offer even more driver comfort and increased safety. For truck drivers, who spend a lot of time behind the wheel, everything that makes life on the road easier, simpler and safer is very much appreciated...

Western Union announces Apple Pay support

The Western Union Company (www.westernunion.com), which specializes in global payment services, says U.S. customers using its mobile app can now pay with Apple Pay when sending money transfers originating in the United States to more than 200 countries and territories worldwide, including domestic bill payments. 

The capability to pay with Apple’s mobile payment system to send money transfers through the Western Union app in the United Kingdom is planned for later this year. Today, 60 percent of all Western Union digital money transfer transactions globally are initiated via a mobile device, says Khalid Fellahi, senior vice president and general manager, Western Union Digital. 

The company continues to expand its digital footprint. Consumers can now send money globally via WU.com in 37 countries, the Western Union mobile app in 18 countries (five of these apps offer omni-channel choice with digital...

Apple, Samsung draw a line in the sand over $400...

Apple and Samsung “dug trenches” in California federal court Monday for the latest battle in their long-running war over smartphone patents, laying out arguments for how a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on Apple’s nearly $400 million damages award should be applied, reports Law 360.

In January Samsung told the Federal Circuit that Apple was flat wrong in arguing that a recent U.S. Supreme Court finding on design patent awards didn’t disturb its claim on a $400 million award, saying it took “chutzpah” for the iPhone maker to try to stop Samsung’s new trial. In December 2016, the Supreme Court sided with Samsung, throwing out an appeals court ruling that said the South Korean company had to pay a $399 million penalty to its American...

I dug into Christoph Kabisch’s new iBook with zero expectations. A look back at the original iPhone? How good could this be?

As it turns out, the book was a fascinating read with lots of detail, both in word and images. I owned the original iPhone, was there when it was announced and rolled out. I thought I remembered the details, but this book made it clear how much slipped out of my memory.

When you read it, be sure to tap on each image. Some move to a larger frame, others are 3D models that rotate.

The book is only 99 cents. Here’s a link. Worth it for the pictures alone. A terrific journey back in time.

New Siri patent

Patently Apple:

In the future, if Siri doesn’t recognize the voice of the owner of the device, accessing Siri or the computer associated with it will be impossible.

And:

Today a user will say “hey Siri” and Siri will respond. In the future, the command to call up Siri may be customized to your voice. For instance, a user sets up Siri to recognize the phrase “Hey there, Boss.” The customized phrase and the voice must match what’s in Siri’s database before the digital assistant will respond. The customized phrase is technically referred to in Apple’s patent filings as a “Lexical Trigger.”

And:

In the future, in order to access Siri, a person will have to know a passcode, use a fingerprint or be recognized by the system via face recognition. Unless your iDevice recognizes you on multiple security levels, Siri will remain unresponsive to commands or requests.

As long as I can turn this off via a setting, this seems like a natural evolution....

You asked for it, we brought it back. When we ran a deal last month for a 3 pack of 2-in-1 Lightning to Headphone Jack Charging Cables for $21.99, we didn't realize how popular it was going to be. Apparently there are a LOT of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus owners who need the convenience of being able to charge their phones while listening to music on headphones. We've brought back the deal for a limited time.

That price tag is 56% off the regular retail price of these cables from Sky Innovations. Here are some of the details:

  • Use your existing wired headsets or headphones w/ your new iPhone
  • Enhance audio experience by allowing wired listening

Rumor: ‘iPhone 8’ might not launch until October or...

Normally, new iPhones launch around September. However, a report from the Chinese language site, Economic Daily News (as noted by MacRumors.com), says the “iPhone 8” may not arrive until October or November because suppliers are encountering "technical issues" because of differences in the display lamination process and challenges involved in integrating the 3D sensing front camera system. 

The Sellers Research Firm (that’s me) says that this rumor makes sense. And I think we’d all rather that Apple take time to get the new smartphone just right instead of trying to meet an arbitrary deadline.

Also, in regards to the next generation iPhone (shown in a fanciful mock-up), that have been rumors that it will cost upwards of $1,000. However, in a note to clients — as noted by 9to5Mac — UBS analyst...

Tim Berners-Lee wins $1 million Turing Award

MIT News:

MIT Professor Tim Berners-Lee, the researcher who invented the World Wide Web and is one of the world’s most influential voices for online privacy and government transparency, has won the most prestigious honor in computer science, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) A.M. Turing Award. Often referred to as “the Nobel Prize of computing,” the award comes with a $1 million prize provided by Google.

Tim Berners-Lee changed the world as much as anyone else in the computing or business world. Folks like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk etc. all changed the world, no doubt. But all of them became incredibly wealthy in the process. Nice to see this announcement.

We’ve been hearing conflicting reports about the likely retail cost of the iPhone 8. Some reports have suggested that the price could exceed $1,000, the price reflecting its premium positioning in the line-up thanks to features like an OLED screen and augmented reality.

A report yesterday contradicted this, suggesting that the price will actually remain in three figures, somewhere around the $850-900 range.

Does this kind of difference matter … ?

NFL and Amazon reach one year deal, Thursday night...

Wall Street Journal:

The National Football League has reached a deal to stream 10 Thursday night games with Amazon.com Inc., the online retailer that is aggressively trying to position itself as a premier source of entertainment content.

The one-year agreement is valued at around $50 million, according to people familiar with the matter. That price tag represents a fivefold increase over the NFL’s agreement with Twitter Inc. for the same number of games last season.

To me, this deal makes much more sense than last year’s Twitter deal. The Twitter deal seemed like dipping a toe in the waters, an experiment with no real end goal. With Amazon, the deal seems more practical, a move to drive traffic, to increase Amazon Prime signups. Note that the games will still be available on TV via CBS and NBC.

Not sure this kind of move would ever make sense for Apple, unless buying an Apple TV was the only way you could watch Thursday Night Football.

Recently published patent application shows how...

Apple may be looking to bring both the Touch ID and Touch Bar features to an updated version of the Magic Keyboard.

A new Apple patent application, or at least some form of the application, shows a device may also include a processing unit positioned within the housing, and a primary display positioned at least partially within the housing and configured to display a graphical-user interface executed by the processing unit. In some embodiments, the display is an organic light-emitting diode display. The electronic device may be a keyboard device.

This change would address one of the main concerns expressed about the Touch Bar on the 2016 MacBook Pro, in that its advantages would become moot if the user were using an external keyboard.

Apple has also been rumored to have been holding discussions with dynamic keyboard maker Sonder, so there may be some interesting things coming down the pipe in this area.

Apple offers slight speed bump for current Mac Pro,...

Apple’s pro-grade machine got a bit of a speed bump today, albeit it might not be the overhaul that users were expecting.

The tower, which has remained without an update for more than three years, is still available with the two base models retailing for $2,999 and $3,999. The lower-end model jumps from from a quad-core Xeon CPU to a 6-core one, and gets dual G500 GPUs (an upgrade over the G300 GPUs), while the step-up model gets an 8-core CPU (up from 6) and dual D700 GPUs (up from the D500). At present, there’s still no onboard USB-C and no Thunderbolt 3, which means it still won’t be able to run the LG UltraFine 5K display.

Apple also stated that new, pro-level iMacs are due later this year.

Apple has stated in past interviews with senior vice presidents Phil Schiller and Craig Federighi that “The current Mac Pro … was constrained thermally and it restricted our ability to upgrade it” and engineering, wherein the company has apparently “designed ourselves...

I’ve been testing Yunmai’s $66.99 YUNMAI “intelligent body composition scale” for about a week and find that it’s iPhone integration is helpful and it’s very accurate in tracking your weight. However, like every other “smart scale” I’ve tried, it doesn’t accurately measure body fat. More on that in a second.

The YUNMAI keeps track of body statistics through a free iOS app that can be downloaded to an iPhone (alas, there’s no iPad support yet). According to the folks at Yunmai, it records body statistics through bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), a method of estimating body composition. BIA measures weight, fat, body mass index (BIA), muscle, visceral fat, bone mass, water, basal metabolic rate, body age and protein

The YUNMAI sports four pressure sensors and four human body sensors for its readings. The iOS app keeps track of daily, weekly, monthly and yearly weight changes, allowing you to set weight goals and...

Apple patent filing hints at iPhones with flexible...

There have rumors that the “iPhone 8” will have a flexible display. I’m a little dubious, but the company has filed for a patent (number 9614168) for a “flexible display panel with bent substrate.”

In the patent filing, Apple says it may be desirable to bend an edge of a display to hide inactive display components along the edge of the display from view. However, the process of bending a display can create stresses within the structures of the display. For example, bent metal traces may become stressed. Stress-induced damage such as cracks may adversely affect display reliability. Apple says it would “be desirable to be able to provide improved displays with bent portions.”

Here’s Apple’s summary of the patent: “A display may have an array of organic light-emitting diodes that form an active area on a flexible substrate. Metal traces may extend between the active area and an inactive area of the flexible substrate. Display driver circuitry such as a display driver...

It's not certain when Apple's homegrown GPU will appear in devices, and the company didn't respond to request for comment.

But this week, his response to an unhappy customer has gotten Garadget a totally different sort of attention. On April 1, a customer who purchased Garadget on Amazon using the name R. Martin reported problems with the iPhone application that controls Garadget. He left an angry comment on the Garadget community board: "Just installed and attempting to register a door when the app started doing this.

Apple Dubai Mall will have a grand opening ‘soon’

Apple Dubai Mall, a retail store in The Dubai Mall, will “open soon.". The mall is located in, as you might guess from the name, Dubai, the most populous city in the United Arab Emigrates.

UAE is a country located in the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf, bordering Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south, as well as sharing sea borders with Qatar and Iran.

Hours (in local time, of course) will be 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

In a very uncharacteristic move for Apple, the company today decided to address recent concerns among its pro market and pre-announce an all-new, rethought Mac Pro in the cards for next year. Less exciting is the spec bumps that make the current lineup more affordable in the meantime, and the company also added in confirmation that new iMac models are coming later this year. But is Apple’s pre-announcement for new Mac Pros enough to address pro concerns?

Apple to refund recent Workflow purchases after...

If you snagged the popular iOS automation app Workflow juuuuust before Apple bought it and then made it a free service, don’t worry: Apple is gonna give you that $2.99 back. Plus tax.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple is emailing iTunes customers who recently purchased Workflow to let them know that the app is now free and that refunds are imminent.

It’s unclear exactly what the purchase window is for refunds, although 9to5Mac reported one Twitter user had bought his version “some weeks ago.”

When Apple confirmed the acquisition to TechCrunch in late March, a company spokesperson said Workflow would remain in the App Store as a free app, but didn’t say whether Workflow’s technology would be built into iOS. That would make sense, given that Apple is pitching the iPad...

Apple Music for Android updated

Like the iOS version, Apple Music for Android features a bolder, cleaner look with reorganized sections: “Library,” “For You,” “Browse,” and “Radio.” Also included are iOS 10 features like song lyrics and a revamped For You recommendation section, plus with the redesign, there’s more of a focus on album art.

I could say something sarcastic like “I wonder if Android gets the iTunes Match feature that doesn’t work, or is that an iOS-only feature.”

But I won’t.

Apple fixes wireless-based remote code execution...

Apple released an iOS update Monday to fix a serious vulnerability that could allow attackers to remotely execute malicious code on the Broadcom Wi-Fi chips used in iPhones, iPads, and iPods.

The vulnerability is a stack buffer overflow in the feature that handles authentication responses for the fast BSS transition feature of the 802.11r protocol, also known as fast roaming. This feature allows devices to move easily and securely between different wireless base stations in the same domain.

Hackers can exploit the flaw to execute code in the context of the Wi-Fi chip's firmware if they're within the wireless range of the targeted devices.

The issue is one of several flaws found by Google Project Zero researcher Gal Beniamini in the firmware of Broadcom Wi-Fi chips. Some of these vulnerabilities also affect Android devices and have been patched...

Hopefully, the company has learned that it’s okay to admit that you made a mistake (ie, the 2013 Mac Pro and cancelation of the Thunderbolt Display). Concerning the latter, it’s obvious that the promotion of the LG UltraFine displays as suitable replacements...

How to choose the best VPN service for iPhone and...

In light of the latest news that President Trump has overturned the FCC Internet privacy rules, discussions for and against virtual private networks (VPNs) have resurfaced. One of the biggest complaints with the repeal is that internet service providers are now legally allowed to sell your browsing data, if they’d like. While some ISPs have said that they won’t sell your browsing history for now, that doesn’t bar them from doing so in the future.

Proponents of VPNs believe that by utilizing such a service, you can obfuscate your browsing history so that your ISP won’t be able to build a “catalog” of your browsing habits. Opponents to VPNs dutifully note that by using a VPN service all you’re doing is migrating your browsing history from one ISP’s eyes to...

Opinion: Apple’s rare change of mind is great news...

Apple is famously one of the most secretive companies in the world. It believes in what Steve Jobs called the ‘magic’ of the surprise reveal. The ‘one more thing’ presentation style pioneered by Steve is so much a part of Apple’s DNA that it has a stock phrase it uses to answer questions about its product plans: ‘We do not comment on future products.’

It’s hard to imagine Apple would ever take a different approach. Today it did.

It not only revealed future product plans a year in advance – something so out of character it’s hard to believe it really happened – but it also did something else Apple almost never does: it admitted to a mistake.

Sure, none of the three Apple execs present ever used that word, but the mea culpa is clear …
