Apple can’t block Attac’s protests at its France...

The High Court of Paris has denied Apple's request for an injunction that would have blocked Attac from protesting at the company's retail stores across France, reports MacRumors. The activist group has been protesting what it perceives as Apple's tax evasion in Europe.

The order says the mere presence of protesters at Apple's stores in France, without violence, vandalism, or customers being blocked from entering the premises, isn’t enough to justify limiting the group's rights to freedom of expression and freedom of peaceful assembly protected by human rights laws in Europe.  

The court added that Attac acted in accordance with the European Union's Statutes of the Association, and defined the protests as a matter of public interest. Apple has been ordered to pay 2,000 euros to cover the group’s legal fees.

∞ Rene Ritchie, John Gruber and an all-star cast...

[VIDEO] I absolutely love this video (embedded in the main Loop post). First off, there’s the topic. Twitter is pulling their Mac client, forcing people to either go through their browser or adopt a third party Twitter client. I’ve been thinking about this, but I just can’t wrap my head around their motivation. Is this some kind of end run around Apple? An attempt to reduce maintenance costs (one less platform to support)?

No matter, this is a video of Rene Ritchie, John Gruber, Loren Brichter (part of Apple’s original iPhone dev team, creator of Tweetie for iPhone OS, and original creator of Twitter for the Mac), Twitterrific’s Craig Hockenberry, Twitter for Mac developer Ben Sandofsky, and Tapbot’s Paul Haddad, all in a round robin discussion.

The topic is hot, the panelists are all steeped in the Twitter for Mac story, and the video format gives you the chance to see these people whose names you might have heard or whose tweets you might have encountered.

Adjusting EQ: iOS yes. Mac yes. HomePod? No.

The HomePod is self-balancing, algorithmically adjusting its sound for the environment in which it’s placed.

Me? I like the sound. Have not yet felt the need to tweak it. But I do like a challenge. I came across this article from OSXDaily, which walks you through the process of tweaking your EQ for iOS.

I fired up some music, then went to Settings > Music and tapped EQ. There are 23 different canned EQ settings to choose from. The article recommends Late Night to maximize volume on your iPhone. Give that a try if you listen to music out of your iPhone speakers frequently.

Thought I’d try to AirPlay that EQ to HomePod.

With the music still playing, I went to Control Center, tapped the upper-right corner of the music player (bringing up AirPlay), and selected my HomePod. The music played, but when I tapped the various EQ settings, no change...

Rumor: Apple’s AirPower is coming next month

Japanese publication Mac Otakara says — as noted by AppleInsider — that Apple’s AirPower will go on sale in March. A specific date wasn’t mentioned.

The AirPower is a wireless charging mat that will be able to charge a Qi-compatible iPhone, an Apple Watch, and a pair of AirPods (in a special wireless charging case) at the same time regardless of where they're placed on the pad. AirPower hasn't been priced yet, but guesses have it costing anywhere from $150 - $200. 

Chances this rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 90%. Apple said the AirPower was coming in early 2018, so March sounds like a reasonable month to me.

Accidental 911 calls traced to Apple’s Elk Grove...

Cathy Locke, Sacramento Bee:

Apple’s iPhone repair and refurbishing center has been identified as the source of apparently inadvertent 911 calls received by Elk Grove police and Sacramento County sheriff’s dispatch centers over the past five months.

Since October, the Elk Grove Police Department’s dispatch center has been receiving about 20 non-subscriber initialized 911 calls per day, said Officer Jason Jimenez, police spokesman. The calls show no service provider for the phone, but the dispatch center has traced them to a cell tower near the Apple campus and determined that they are coming from the phone repair facility, he said.

The calls are coming from inside the house.


Since Jan. 1, Hampton said, the sheriff’s communication center has received 47 uninitialized 911 calls and has been able to document that 30 of those came from the Apple facility.

Future Apple devices may have flexible ‘sidewall...

Future Apple iPhones, iPads, and Mac laptops may have sidewall displays. Apple has filed for a patent (number 20180052540) for devices with flexible displays that are bent to form displays on multiple surfaces of the devices. These mini-screens could offer additional functionality.

Bent flexible displays may be bent to form front side displays and edge displays. Edge displays could function as virtual buttons, virtual switches, or informational displays that are supplemental to front side displays. Virtual buttons may include transparent button members, lenses, haptic feedback components, audio feedback components, or other components for providing feedback to a user when virtual buttons are activated.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that flexible display technologies are available that allow displays to be flexed. The tech giant thinks such displays could be used for input-output components and additional features. For example, virtual buttons on the edge of a...

How to take care of your HomePod

Apple’s HomePod is relatively durable. However, since, at $350, it ain’t inexpensive, you should take steps to take care of it. Here are some support and safety tips.

Do not use a HomePod near water or where it might be exposed to dripping or splashing. Keep the wireless speaker away from all sources of liquid, such as drinks, washbasins, bathtubs, shower stalls, swimming pools, spas, and so on. Do not place any object filled with liquid on top of it. Don’t expose a HomePod to moisture, dampness, or wet weather, such as rain, snow, or fog.

  • Clean the speaker gently and only with a dry cloth.
  • Don’t block any ventilation openings on the HomePod. 
  • Unplug it during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time. 
  • Don’t place a HomePod near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat. Don’t place a naked flame such as a lighted candle or lit cigarette on or...

Rumor: Apple working on second-gen AirPods featuring...

Apple is apparently working on a second-gen series of AirPods which could include “Hey Siri” support instead of requiring a tap before giving voice commands. The new model will also sport an updated wireless chip for improved Bluetooth connections.

Sources close to the story have stated that Apple is looking to update the iPods in 2018.

The current AirPods require a double-tap on the units to activate Siri. Incorporating a voice-activated “Hey Siri” command will bring AirPods in line with interacting with Apple’s voice assistant on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and HomePod.

As of 2017, Apple had stated that it will introduce a wireless charging case for the AirPods in 2018, alongside a charging plate that can accommodate an iPhone, Apple Watch, and the AirPods charging case at the same time. The updated AirPods and charging case are expected this year.

DroneDeploy iOS Live Map feature revolutionizes...

As a commercial drone pilot, I'm very familiar with DroneDeploy -- it's a platform that uses an iOS app connected to a remote controller to automate aerial mapping from drones. Last week, DroneDeploy updated its app with a new feature called Live Map, which lets drone operators create real-time maps in the field on the iOS device.

Previously, users would use DroneDeploy to plan a flight to take photos, but then needed to download photos from an SD card to a computer, then upload to the DroneDeploy platform to have a map assembled. With Live Map, a drone pilot plans a flight, takes off, and then watches as maps are rendered on-screen during flight. There's no need for an internet or cell connection, and the wait for processing is eliminated.

The new Live Map feature enables high quality daily mapping. For growers and agronomists, this means...

So I asked on Twitter: “What do you do to get yourself moving when this happens to you?” I got tons of interesting responses, which I’ve organized into some broader categories in the hope that they’ll help someone out in the future.

External Link: Tim Cook: “I’ve only had good years”

Apple CEO Tim Cook sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Fast Company’s Robert Safian. Cook is feeling pretty good about his tenure at Apple, saying up front that he has “only had good years.” Despite the excellent performance of Apple stock, Cook expresses misgivings about the stock market and discusses Apple’s patience in developing products (“Because we don’t believe in using our customers as a laboratory.”), how he reads customer feedback (“I tend to weight the ones that are most thoughtful.”), and how Apple wants to help its customers do the right thing (such as with Do Not Disturb While Driving).

People freaked out after robot dogs opened a door....

[VIDEO] Alex Horton, Washington Post:

In one of the scariest moments in the movie “Jurassic Park,” a pair of intelligent Velociraptors, brought back to Earth by man’s hubris, defy an assumption about their limitations: They open a kitchen door.

Now imagine that the raptors are real, transformed into headless robot dogs that can negotiate stairs, fling open doors with their robotic claws and generally overcome the puny obstacles offered up by the human technicians at Boston Dynamics.

Normally, I’d ignore or modify the sensational headline of the Post article. But it made me laugh and was (kind of) on point. Last week, we posted this video, showing a dog-like robot opening a door. People really did freak out. A bit.

Well, now there’s a follow-up (embedded in the main Loop post), where a human tries to stop the robot from...

Bloomberg: Apple plans AirPods upgrade

Mark Gurman, Bloomberg:

The model coming as early as this year will let people summon Apple’s Siri digital assistant without physically tapping the headphones by saying “Hey Siri.” The function will work similarly to how a user activates Siri on an iPhone or a HomePod speaker hands-free. The headphones, internally known as B288, will include an upgraded Apple-designed wireless chip for managing Bluetooth connections. The first AirPods include a chip known as the W1, and Apple released the W2 with the Apple Watch last year.

The idea for the water-resistant model is for the headphones to survive splashes of water and rain, the people said. They likely won’t be designed to be submerged in water. The latest iPhones can survive splashes, while the Apple Watch is considered “swim-proof.” Apple’s plans could change or be delayed, the people said. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.

Is this enough to make you replace your AirPods with the latest and greatest?...

Gartner: Apple's iPhone sales fell 5% in...

Global sales of smartphones to end users totaled nearly 408 million units in the fourth quarter of 2017, a 5.6% decline over the fourth quarter of 2016, according to Gartner, Inc. This is the first year-on-year decline since the research group started tracking the global smartphone market in 2004. 

While Apple's market share stabilized in the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to the same quarter in 2016, iPhone sales fell 5%. "Apple was in a different position this quarter than it was 12 months before, according to Anshul Gupta, research director at Gartner: it had three new smartphones — the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X — yet its performance in the quarter was overshadowed by two factors. 

“First, the later availability of the iPhone X led to slow upgrades to iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, as users waited to try the more-expensive model. Second, component shortages and manufacturing capacity constraints preceded a long...

The filings, uncovered by French website Consomac, are legally required for any devices with encryption sold in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia.

I buy it, seems a reasonable tree of logic.

Nobody wants to let Google win the war for maps all...

Mark Bergen, Bloomberg:

On any given day, there could be a half dozen autonomous cars mapping the same street corner in Silicon Valley. These cars, each from a different company, are all doing the same thing: building high-definition street maps, which may eventually serve as an on-board navigation guide for driverless vehicles.


Autonomous cars require powerful sensors to see and advanced software to think. They especially need up-to-the-minute maps of every conceivable roadway to move. Whoever owns the most detailed and expansive version of these maps that vehicles read will own an asset that could be worth billions.

The motivation for the next maps war is clear. Billions of dollars at stake. This article is a fascinating look at the players and the technological approaches to capturing the next generation of maps.

Just a taste:

The companies working on maps for autonomous vehicles are taking two different approaches. One aims to...

It’s been over a year since they were released, but AirPods are still the runaway hit in Apple’s lineup, rarely available for immediate shipping and selling out as soon as they’re available at most stores. And now, a new report says Apple is planning on making them even more desirable.

According to Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, Apple is eyeing a new version of AirPods for release this year which would bring a new chip and support for the hands-free ‘Hey Siri’ command. Currently, you need to physically tap one of the AirPods to summon Apple’s AI assistant.

Survey: there are 127 million global active Apple...

A new survey from Gene Munster's Loup Ventures finds Apple Pay’s year-over-year growth has been “impressive” with active users more than doubling. Still, the research group believes that only 16% of iPhone users have enabled the digital payment service.

Still, Loup Ventures is optimistic that Apple Pay will gain widespread adoption over the next 3-5 years given integration OS and iOS makes it the easiest to use digital wallet. The research group’s survey showed that:

  • The Top 100 retailers in the U.S. were checked for Apple Pay compatibility for online (desktop, mobile and apps) and found the growth of adoption has been high (9 to 85%), but off of a small base.
  • The total number of these retailers supporting Apple Pay online now ranges between 14-24%.
  • The number of banks globally that support Apple Pay increased in the past...

Filing hints at bigger gaming plans for the Apple TV

Apple may have big gaming plans for their set-top box. As noted by Patently Apple, the tech giant has updated their Apple TV logo trademark by adding all things related to gaming.

The filing covers “video game consoles; controllers for game consoles; video output games, namely, video output game machines for use with televisions; apparatus for electronic games adapted for use with an external display screen or monitor.” The international filing covers over 60 different countries across Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America.

Apple granted a patent for a ‘travel guitar’

Get ready to rock. Apple has been granted a patent (number 20180053491) for a “travel guitar” that would work with an iPad or iPhone.

According to the patent filing, it would have a reduced profile configured to house or otherwise receive or coupled to a tablet or smartphone and take advantage of one or more apps for driving the operation, functionality and/or effects associated with the travel guitar, and a string assembly capable of retracting or otherwise housing the strings to enable or facilitate configuring the travel guitar into a reduced profile.

In the patent filing, Apple says guitars have enjoyed among the highest popularity among stringed instruments. Most guitars have a solid neck rigidly coupled to either a hollow or solid body. Apple says this construction, while aiding in predictable tuning and quality guitar play, render the guitar cumbersome for travel, particularly given the additional bulk of the associated guitar case (hard or soft). While various...

Rumor: water-resistant AirPods coming this year; ’...

Apple is planning water-resistant AirPods with “Hey, Siri” support for later this year, according to Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter.”

The AirPods update (AirPods 2?) will purportedly arrive later in 2018 and let you call up Apple's digital assistant without physically tapping the headphones by saying "Hey Siri.” However, the water-resistant version won’t arrive until next year and will be designed to survey splashes of water, but not submerging.

Chances this rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 90%. Apple will continue to update its wireless speakers as it does with all its products, so these changes make sense.
