Apple CEO Tim Cook has repeatedly dismissed bill of material estimates as incorrect, but that's not stopping research firm IHS Markit to share its latest findings with industry analysts. This year, the firm estimates Apple spends $247.51 on the components that comprise one 4.7-inch iPhone 8 with 64GB of storage.

Apple last week officially released iOS 11 to the public and since then, we’ve been receiving a bevy of questions from readers about battery life. The majority say they’ve seen battery life fall since upgrading to Apple’s latest operating system, but we’re curious: have you noticed a change in battery life since upgrading to the final release of iOS 11?

Report: Security hole in macOS Keychain puts...

Apple released macOS High Sierra on Monday, so it should be a nice way to spotlight the Mac this week after last week’s iOS 11 and iPhone 8 releases. But a report by a security researcher at Synack puts a bit of a damper on the High Sierra release.

Editor's note: This article was updated at 3:37 p.m. Pacific with a statement from Apple.

Patrick Wardle, Synack’s head of research, posted a video on Monday that shows how code he wrote can be used to get passwords from macOS’s Keychain. Keychain is the password manger built into macOS, and it usually requires a master password to access it. But Wardle’s code was able to access Keychain and collect passwords. The video below is a demonstration posted by Wardle.

Apple recently raised the price of some iPad Pro models, but this week you can find others dropping in cost—at least a little. Right now, Best Buy is selling the 64GB 10.5-inch iPad Pro for $550. That's $100 off the standard price, and it's real savings since the 64GB iPad was not part of Apple's recent price hike.

This is the 2017 model of the Wi-Fi only iPad Pro that features an A10X Fusion chip, 4GB RAM, and of course a 10.5-inch Retina display. Apple claims the new CPU is 30 percent faster than the previous generation of iPads, and it does come close. In our GeekBench 4 benchmark, the new iPad Pro was 28 percent faster than the older 9.7-inch model.

The iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus are officially on sale, and we were able to score both new smartphones early last Friday morning (read Jordan’s full review).

This launch felt a little different from past iPhone launches, simply because the highly-anticipated iPhone X looms large on the horizon. I’ve asked lots of people, and many of them have stated that they are waiting for Apple’s OLED-enabled, diminished-bezel flagship model.

But just because the iPhone X is coming later this year doesn’t automatically mean that you should ignore the iPhone 8. Apple’s brand new flagship smartphone shares a lot of the same design characteristics as the iPhone 6, 6s, and 7, but it also shares some of the same technical power that’s found inside the iPhone X. In this hands-on video unboxing and walkthrough, we consider some of the...

Zack Whittaker, reporting for ZDNet: Patrick Wardle, a former NSA hacker who now serves as chief security researcher at -- Synack, posted a video of the hack -- a password exfiltration exploit -- in action. Passwords are stored in the Mac's Keychain, which typically requires a master login password to access the vault. But Wardle has shown that the vulnerability allows an attacker to grab and steal every password in plain-text using an unsigned app downloaded from the internet, without needing that password.

There’s a new suite of RF chips presumably in place to handle LTE connectivity and a “slightly modified” charging coil to support Qi wireless chargers. But for the most part, the Series 3 is laid out similarly to...

Apple Replaces Bing With Google as Search Engine For...

Apple is ditching Bing and will now use Google to power the default search engine for Siri, Search within iOS (iOS search bar), and Spotlight on Mac. From a report: TechCrunch reported Monday that Apple users will now see search results powered by Google, instead of Bing, when using those tools. For example, when an iPhone user asks Siri a question that needs a search engine result, the voice assistant will now pull from Google, not Bing. Apple will still use Bing for image search queries using Siri or Spotlight on Mac, TechCrunch reported. Apple said the move was done for consistency; its Safari browser uses Google as the default search engine. In a statement, the company told TechCrunch that "we have strong relationships with Google and Microsoft and remain committed to delivering the best user experience possible." Google is reportedly paying Apple $3 billion this year to remain as the default search engine on iPhones and iPads.

Microsoft has learned a lot of very hard lessons over the last couple of decades, and it continues to surprise and annoy me that other firms seem to have the suicidal tendency to learn the same lessons the hard way. My view is that it is far better and cheaper to avoid the mistakes of others, but firms like Apple, Google and, most recently, Sony seem to want to cherry-pick past Microsoft disasters and experience them first hand. The latest issue has to do with interoperability and millennials.

And while it’s easy to roll your eyes at the idea of a $350 jacket

After a few days of wearing Levi’s Jacquard jacket, I’m more

macOS 10.13 “High Sierra” now available

Mac users who are feeling brave can now upgrade to macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”, as the upgrade has just become available on the Mac App Store. Note that it may take a few hours for High Sierra to be visible on the Mac App Store depending on where you are located. 

Many readers have told us that they’re going to wait a few weeks or months before upgrading from Sierra due to concerns about the implementation of APFS on different Macs (SSD-equipped MacBooks vs. Fusion Drive iMacs, for example) and the dearth of “must-have” new features in High Sierra. 

Having used High Sierra on a MacBook Pro for almost a month, I can say that it’s stable, fast, and very familiar to anyone who has used Sierra. As long as you have followed our instructions on preparing for the High Sierra upgrade, you should have little or no problems installing the upgrade and recovering from issues if things don’t go...

Apple tops Interbrand’s 2017 Best Global Brands list

Interbrand has named Apple, Google, and Microsoft as the three most valuable brands in its 2017 Best Global Brands ranking, with technology as the dominant sector.

For five consecutive years, Apple and Google hold the top positions. Apple’s brand value grew by 3% to $184,154 million, as Google’s brand value grew by 6% to $141,703 million. Microsoft jumps into #3, as one of sixteen brands with double-digit percent growth. Following Coca-Cola at #4, sits Amazon, Samsung, Toyota, and Facebook, which breaks into the Top 10 for the first-time at #8. Mercedes-Benz, and IBM round out the Top 10.

Interbrand’s 18th annual report “analyzes how brands grow in a changing world, showing that using technology at scale to deliver intimate human experiences, will help drive economic growth value.” The Top 100 brands have a combined total value of $1,871,730 million, an increase of 4.2% from 2016.

Bada Bing! Apple dumps Microsoft for Google in Siri...

Siri can finally Google itself. In a change that’s surprising only because it took this long, Apple has announced it will be switching from Bing to Google results when handling Siri and Spotlight web queries.

Now, when you ask Siri to search the web for something or it doesn’t know the exact answer to what you’re asking, your results will be from Google, not Bing. The change won’t affect the majority of what Siri can do, just where it sends you when it doesn’t know the answer to something. Curiously, image searches will still default to Bing and video search results will now come directly from YouTube, according to TechCrunch.

Last month Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi Jr. told clients that Google will pay Apple $3 billion this year to remain the default search engine on iPhones and iPads.

Rumor: 2018 iPhone line-up could include a model...

The Korea Herald reports that Apple’s 2018 lineup of iPhones could (and “could’ is probably the operative word here), include a larger LCD model measuring over sixinches with the panel coming from Japan Display.

The new device joins the previously rumored 5.8-inch and 6.46-inch OLED models with panels supplied by Samsung. The Korea Herald says Apple likely won’t switch to all OLED panels until 2019, which is when LG should have the production capacity to help minimize Apple’s dependence on Samsung. 

OLED is made up of many tiny LEDs, each emitting their own light and colors. They don’t require an “always on” backlight, as each LED can be on or off as needed, and emitting the right kind of light needed to create the images you’re seeing. Supporters of the technology praise its high contrast/deep blacks and potential thickness and power consumption advantages. ...

iOS 11 Is Causing Massive Battery Drain Problems

Mark Wilson writes: A study conducted by security research firm Wandera shows that iOS 11 is causing iPhone and iPad batteries to drain faster than ever -- much faster. The difference between iOS 10 and iOS 11 is anything but minor; batteries can drain in half the amount of time following the upgrade. Wandera's report shows how, on average, an iPhone or iPad running iOS 10 takes 240 minutes of usage to drain the battery from 100 percent to zero. With iOS 11 installed, this number plummets to just 96 minutes -- over twice as fast. Users have also complained about the issue.

It looks like Siri and Google are friends again and Bing is in the rear view mirror. In a major shift, Apple is changing its search results provider for Siri and Spotlight on iOS and macOS from Microsoft’s Bing to the vastly more popular Google.

TechCrunch says the change has started to roll out today (it’s also live for me) and should be in effect for all users by the end of the day. For users, this means Siri and Spotlight will now provide the same search results as Safari by default (and in a lot of cases show better search results).

I’m of two minds about this. The information junkie in me loves the idea but, as far as a baseball purist as I may or may not be, I’d like to just sit and watch the game. Not to mention how distracting this would be for fans around you.

Rogue Amoeba celebrating 15th anniversary, having a...

Rogue Amoeba is a company with an odd name and a wonderful purpose -- providing award-winning audio tools. The company turns 15 on September 15th, and it's celebrating with a big sale on everything in the product line.

How much of a sale? To start off with, Rogue Amoeba is taking 15 percent off of every app. Then they're adding a "savings boost" that can vary from 1.33X to 4X, basically meaning that you'll actually get to save 20 to 60 percent on the products. 

To get started you just need to point your browser at the sale page, where you can "scratch off" a virtual ticket for your savings boost percentage (unsurprisingly, mine came in at 1.33X -- which is still worth $9.80 off on Audio Hijack or a whopping $19.80 off of Loopback.

The sale only lasts through September 30, so if you're going to take advantage of the savings on one of...

With the unveiling of the Steve Jobs Theater two weeks ago, you'd think that all of the hoopla surrounding the new Apple campus is over with. Well, there's still work in progress, and the latest 4K drone video by Matthew Roberts shows many of the aspects of Apple Park in beautiful detail:

Highlighted in the video are the "spaceship" building, the visitor center / Apple Store, the aforementioned Steve Jobs Theater, the employee wellness center, and the continued planting of fruit trees and native grasses around the facility. Can you imagine what this place will look like in a year or two after the plantings have had an opportunity to flourish?

Insight into the Apple Watch Series 3 signal meter

Jeff Butts, MacObserver, sharing info he got from Andrew Woodward, who has his new Apple Watch in hand:

When Mr. Woodward activated his Apple Watch Series 3 LTE and received a text message confirmation, he thought he’d see the green dots on the Watch face. He didn’t, so began the technical support process. After speaking to both his cellular provider and Apple, the thought was that the eSIM was still waiting to be provisioned.

It wasn’t, but Mr. Woodward didn’t realize it until later on in the day. He walked away from his iPhone, beyond Bluetooth and Wi-Fi range. Suddenly the green dots appeared.

Those green dots are the sign that your Apple Watch is flying solo, using its data plan and, likely, using more battery to support the LTE radio.

As you’d expect, the Apple Watch uses the iPhone’s radio whenever possible, saving battery life.

The linked article also walks through the Apple Watch Control Panel interface (swipe up from the bottom of the...

On Friday, a new version of Super Mario Run will be available for free to all users, and Nintendo says it will be the game’s “biggest update ever.”

It’s so big, in fact, Nintendo can’t wait to show it to us. In a tweet from Nintendo UK, the company teased “a new world, new mode, new playable character, and more” in the free update. Additionally, the new iOS 11 App Store...

How Apple built an iPhone camera that makes everyone...

John Paczkowski, Managing Editor, BuzzFeed:

This year the company is particularly proud of these, which boast a marquee “Portrait Lighting” feature that brings a range of professional-looking effects to the already great photos the dual camera system on the iPhone 7 Plus is capable of taking.

This year’s leap, however, feels particularly meaningful.

And:

The camera’s effects don’t rely on filters. They’re the result of Apple’s new dual camera system working in concert with machine learning to sense a scene, map it for depth, and then change lighting contours over the subject. It’s all done in real time, and you can even preview the results thanks to the company’s enormously powerful new A11 Bionic chip. The result, when applied to Apple scale, has the power to be transformative for modern photography, with millions of amateur shots suddenly professionalized. In many ways it’s the fullest realization of the democratization of high-quality imagery that the...

Mastering the iOS 11 app-stacking gesture

From a larger article on customizing your iOS home screen, Rene Ritchie has a section on rearranging apps on a page. Of all the gestures added to iOS over the years, I find this one (stacking app icons) the most difficult to master. Might be my big oafish fingers, or a subtlety on the tap mechanism itself, but I’ve simply found this mechanism frustrating.

But.

Reading the steps Rene lays out in his post, watching the GIF, and practicing a bit, I finally have it. I think the issue for me was a quick staccato tap to add an icon. Had to hit it just right.

No matter, if you’ve never tried the app stacking thing, give Rene’s article a read.

Since the Apple Watch has always used inductive charging, there was hope that older models would also work with the AirPower mat. That turns out not to be true: the AirPower mat will support only the Apple Watch Series 3. Older models will have to stick with their existing chargers.

iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus adoption seems to be lower...

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus adoption was lower than previous models over the first three days of availability as customers are apparently waiting for the iPhone X.

During the first weekend of sales, the iPhone 8 grabbed 0.3% of the device market share, while the iPhone 8 Plus accounts for 0.4%., according to data from the Localytics research group. However, keep in mind that this data doesn’t represent sales of the newest Apple smartphones, but measures users who have received their phones and have started using apps.

“Comparing first weekend adoption of the iPhone 8 models to previous models shows a notable, albeit not dramatic, difference,” says Localytics. “Last year, we reported that the iPhone 7 model garnered 1% adoption during the first weekend of sales, which was lower than 2015’s iPhone 6 launch, which grabbed 2% in its...

A small-screen iPod, an Internet Communicator and a...

Horace Dediu, Asymco:

Apple is now the biggest watchmaker in the world, overtaking Rolex during the last quarter. This achievement happened less than two and a half years after Apple entered the watch market. Rolex, on the other hand, was founded in 1905, 112 years ago at a time when watches were the avant-garde of technology.

Horace follows with a nice job of walking through the numbers. That part of his post is interesting, but further down the column is something I found even more so:

It’s fitting therefore to remember how the iPhone was launched; as a tentpole troika: A wide-screen iPod, an Internet Communicator and a Phone. Today the new Watch is a small-screen iPod, an Internet Communicator and a Phone.

And:

The iPhone was born a phone but grew up to be something completely unprecedented, unforeseen by its creators and, frankly, undescribable in the language of 2007.

The Watch was born a timepiece but it is traversing through the...

iFixit posts full iPhone 8 teardown

If you’re curious about the internal components of the iPhone 8, the cool humans at iFixit have already performed a full teardown and posted their findings to the Internet.

The teardown revealed a True Tone Retina display, Qi wireless charging support, Touch ID Home button, and improved camera sensors. Other components include an A11 Bionic processor, iFixit found 2 GB RAM, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X16 LTE modem and Gigabit LTE RF transceiver, Skyworks quad-band GSM power amplifier module, NXP secure NFC module, a Broadcom wireless charging chip, and more.

the iPhone 8’s rear-facing camera sports the same ƒ/1.8 6-element lens as the iPhone 7, but with a bigger sensor while sticking with 12 MP resolution. The front-facing camera is ƒ/2.2 7 MP with 1080p HD video support.

Apple has also included a 6.96 Wh battery, which is something of a step down from the iPhone 7’s 7.45 Wh battery, but apparently still retains the same battery life according to Apple.

Apple quietly extends iTunes Store movie rental...

Coinciding with the launch of the new Apple TV 4K and iPhone 8 devices, Apple on Friday updated its website with new information regarding movie rentals, saying viewers now have up to 48 hours to complete their rented titles after first pressing play.

Prior to the change, iTunes Store customers had only a 24-hour period to finish watching or replaying a rented title. The change, though quietly announces, doubles the previous time limit.

Customers can watch and re-watch a rented movie as many times as they like within the 48 hour window. As noted by Apple, users who download movies for offline viewing are still subject to the 48 hour timer.

As expected, users have a 30 day time limit to begin watching a movie after it has been rented. If the movie goes unwatched during these 30 days, customers must rent the title again, thereby receiving another 30 days of access.

The movie rental change arrives as Apple TV 4K devices reach pre-order customers and...
