Liveblog: Apple’s Q1 2017 earnings call happens at...

Enlarge / The iPhone 7 and the AirPods. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

Apple will host its earnings call for the first quarter of its fiscal 2017 this afternoon at 5pm Eastern (10pm UK), and we'll be liveblogging the call and the analyst Q&A session to give you all the information along with our insights and charts.

This quarter's results are expected to be a return to year-over-year growth after a disappointing 2016 in which Apple's year-over-year earnings fell for the first time since 2001. Apple's guidance from last quarter predicted that the company would make between $76 and $78 billion this quarter with profit margins between 38 and 38.5 percent. It made $74.6 billion in revenue in Q1 of 2016.

Expect services revenue, a consistent bright spot in Apple's 2016...

The future of iOS is 64-bit only: Apple to stop...

Ever launch an app on your iPhone and then get a pop-up warning that says the app may slow down your iPhone? (I have old versions of certain apps, so it shows up for me every once in a while.) That warning usually appears when you’re using a 32-bit app. You can still run the app, and you probably don’t even notice the slowdown you’ve been warned about (at least in my personal experience).

Your ability to run that 32-bit app is coming to an end. As several other Mac sites have reported, Apple has updated the pop-up warning in the iOS 10.3 beta to say that the 32-bit app you’re running “will not work with future versions of iOS.” The warning goes on to say that the “...

Twelve South conjures up a MagicBridge for Mac owners

Twelve South has released the $34.99 MagicBridge. Much like its predecessor, the MagicWand, the MagicBridge connects your Apple Wireless Keyboard and your Magic Trackpad 2, creating a one-piece control surface.

It allows you to place your trackpad on either the left or right side of your wireless keyboard, while sculpted edges hold your devices in place without interfering with touch typing or swiping.  A grill on the back provides complete access to charging ports and power — in either the left or right configuration. 

The MagicBridge is crafted in matte white polycarbonate. According to the folks at Twelve South, it doesn’t block Bluetooth signals. The MagicBridge has silicone pads on the inside to protect your keyboard and trackpad and silicone feet underneath to protect your desk.

Super Mario Run gets an easy mode, pulls in the big...

Super Mario Run is getting an easy mode, thanks to an update rolling out Tuesday on iOS. This is great, because as adorable as the game is, it can be kind of hard, especially for kids. Nintendo says easy mode will be “pressure free” so you can just explore the levels without dying over and over. 

Super Mario Run is a free download for iOS, and unlocking the full game is a $10 in-app purchase. During the company's earnings call on Tuesday, Nintendo announced that more than 5 percent of users are buying the full game, but that’s still a lot of gold coins—$53 million so far—and it only launched in the second half of December 2016.

Apple hasn’t fully paid the 13 billion euros ($13.9 billion) it owes to Ireland in illegal tax benefits even though the deadline has passed, the European Union's competition says.

"Well the recovery is not done yet but we have been working with the Irish authorizes and we can see that they are moving forward to do the recovery of the unpaid taxes," EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said during a press conference in response to a question by CNBC. “It's a tricky thing to do because it's a large sum so of course you have to figure out how to do that. It's not as an escrow account in some of the other cases where it might be 25 or 30 million euros … and therefore I do respect that it's a complicated matter and it may take a little more time.”

Both Ireland and Apple have pledged to fight the decision via the European courts. Vestager...

iOS 10.3 likely to drop support for 32-bit apps

According to 9to5Mac, Apple apparently plans to drop support for 32-bit apps in iOS 10.3.

The alert dialog presented when launching a 32-bit app on iOS 10.3 beta 1 now warns users that the app needs to be updated to continue working on future versions of iOS. This suggests that iOS 11 could be the first version to only support 64-bit apps, according to 9to5Mac. iOS 11 will almost certainly be previewed at this summer's Apple Worldwide Developer Conference.

Apple has supported 64-bit apps on iOS since the launch of the iPhone 5s in September 2013. The company has also required developers submit new apps with 64-bit support since February 2015 and app updates since June 2015.

While legacy 32-bit apps still in the App Store have continued to be supported, iOS 9 included an alert when first launching 32-bit apps that told users the legacy app may slow down device...

Apple has been toying with LTE-enabled MacBooks for many years. It even created a prototype MacBook Pro with a SIM slot and cellular antenna way back in 2007.

These days, doing so would be far neater, the latest Apple patent showing how the antenna could be hidden within the hinge mechanism, and an embedded virtual SIM could eliminate the physical one illustrated above. While the company has so far argued that using an iPhone’s WiFi hotspot or carrying an iPad provide plenty of options for mobile Internet use, the threat of competition from LTE-capable Windows laptops might just provide the nudge needed to change Apple’s mind …

If you’re eyeing LG’s 27-inch UltraFine 5K display for Mac—the monitor that Apple recommends for Mac users and sells in its online store—you'll want to be aware of an irritating flaw in its design. The Thunderbolt 3-capable display apparently suffers from signal interference, rendering the monitor unusable when it’s within 6.5 feet or so of a wireless router.

This Apple knowledge base page (via 512 Pixels) has beautifully detailed pictures of each Apple Watch band style, along with instructions on properly fastening each band type, as well as tips on getting the best fit.

What I found fascinating about the page was the pair of warnings at the bottom:

Apple Watch, the space gray and rose gold aluminum Apple Watch Sport, the stainless steel portions of some Apple Watch bands, and the magnets in the watch and bands contain some nickel. However, they all fall below the strict nickel restrictions set by European REACh regulation. Therefore, while nickel exposure is unlikely to be a problem, you should be aware of the possibility in case you’re susceptible to nickel-related reactions.

Theater mode for Apple Watch

Christian Zibreg, iDownloadBlog, on Apple Watch theater mode:

Activated via a brand new toggle in Control Center, Theater Mode puts your wearable device into silent mode while keeping the screen dark until you tap it or press the Digital Crown or the Side button.

Read the post for all the details, including some nice screen shots and a video that shows theater mode in action.

In a nutshell, you drag up on your Apple Watch screen to bring up control center. Tap the theater mode icon (orange, with two theater masks) to bring up a splash screen with a theater mode button. Tap the button and theater mode is enabled.

In theater mode, your watch screen will not light up in response to notifications or a wrist flick. You’ll need to tap the screen or press the Digital Crown or side button to turn it on.

Rich McCormick, The Verge:

Twitter’s vice president of engineering, Ed Ho, has promised to make changes to the service to combat harassment as soon as this week. Speaking on Twitter, Ho said that the company would be rolling out a number of product changes “in the days ahead,” including “long overdue fixes to mute/block” features, and new measures designed stop serial abusers from creating new accounts.

Ho said that making Twitter safer was the company’s primary focus at the moment, and acknowledged its failures in the past to protect users from threats, insults, and other harassment. “We heard you, we didn’t move fast enough last year,” Ho wrote in a threaded series of tweets. “Now we’re thinking about progress in days and hours not weeks and months.”

Breaking the American dream

Jean-Louis Gassée, writing for Monday Note:

Here in the Valley tech CEOs are taken to task for their timid protests against the latest bout of xenophobia. ‘It’s not a policy we support’, or ‘this is not the best way’, or ‘we’re concerned’.

I don’t think this is the right perspective. We’ve seen how a Trump tweet can hurt a company and its shareholders. A responsible CEO shouldn’t expose his constituents to irrational wrath. We’ve seen, during the transition, how Trump berated and threatened media executives in off-the record exchanges. Imagine the scenario I saw on Twitter (but can’t find for proper attribution — update: it was @counternotions). Someone calls Brian Roberts, CEO of Comcast, and in a heavy mafia voice tells him ‘Nice little bidness you have here, be a shame if anything happened to it’. This because Comcast owns NBC and NBC runs Saturday Night Live and its sharp Trump parodies. They hurt their target’s needy ego — because they do what caricatures do,...

It wraps up its interpretation in handcrafted themes for export, adjusting to screen size so they read comfortably on any device, he adds. 

Tabula requires macOS 10.10 or later. For a limited time, it’s offered for the introductory price of $4.99and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store. Tabula is also available for iOS for the introductory price of $2.99 at the Apple App Store.

SCOSCHE introduces USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter

SCOSCHE Industries has released the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter, which features three ports and is targeted for Type-C devices such as the 2016 MacBooks and MacBook Pros.

One port is an HDMI connection that allows users to mirror the laptop display to an HDMI-enabled TV or display up to 4K HD. Additionally, it outputs video content such as movies and captured video. You connect the adapter to the Type-C port of the MacBook or other USB-C device and then to a TV or projector via an HDMI cable.

The USB-C Hub also has a Type-A port, allowing users to connect older peripherals and computer accessories, such as flash drives and cameras, to the new Type-C Mac laptops. The Type-A port on the adapter also lets users charge and sync their iPhone, iPad or iPod. The third USB port on the adapter (USB-C) permits pass-through charging of MacBooks or other Type-C computers even when the other ports are in-use.

The USB-C Hub is available now for $59.99 at...

Apple has applied for two patents regarding augmented reality (AR), both of which would logically (or so it seems to me) involve the iPhone. One patent (number 9,560,273) is for a “wearable information system” having at least one camera.

The system will have at least one camera and a low-power mode and a high power mode. The high-power mode would be activated by a detection of at least one object in at least one field of view of the at least one camera.

In the patent filing, Apple says that AR, as a new user interface paradigm, “has seen great progress, especially based on computer vision algorithms for object recognition and pose estimation. “Head mounted displays, equipped with a camera have been known for some time.

Apple says that one big obstacle for the success of AR-based information systems, which are able to always watch the user's surrounding for interesting objects, is the high power-consumption of image processing algorithms run on...

Last month, Dennis Sellers reviewed the Wally iPhone case from DistilUnion. Today, the Charleston, SC-based design house released the latest in their handy Wally wallet case line with the new $34.99 Wally Ether

Like the Wally case, the Wally Ether has a leather wallet on the back of the case for carrying up to 4 cards or 3 cards and some cash. But that's where the similarity stops; rather than using a TPE case like the one on the Wally case, the Wally Ether uses a slim clear polycarbonate shell so that you really don't see the case from the front or sides.

The leather exterior is made of full-grain leather  and will age beautifully. A choice of colors -- Ink (black), Hickory (brown), Slate (gray) and...

Apple’s Activation Lock web site may have been involved in a hack, thus explaining its sudden removal and elimination.

As it turns out, the Activation Lock website was a vital part of a bypass hack used to unlock devices bricked by Activation Lock, perhaps hinting at why Apple shelved it.

The hack centered around the perpetrators changing one or two characters of an invalid serial number, thereby generating a valid serial number for an iOS device. The valid number could then be used to gain full access to the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Recently, when attempting to activate a new or recently restored device, some iPhone owners have found their devices inexplicably locked to another Apple ID account – one with an unknown name and password. The problem has been affecting iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, and 7 Plus models since September and can only be fixed by Apple.

Apple has yet to confirm the existence of the hack demonstrated below, but it currently...

Along with the iVisor Pro 15, Moshi’s $24.95 ClearGuard keyboard protector is a must-have (for me, anyway) accessory for my MacBook Pro with Touch. I’m often sipping a cup of coffee while I work on Apple World Today articles. I’ve yet to spill it on my Mac laptop, but, since I’m a klutz, it’s always possible.

In such an event, the ClearGuard — which has been tweaked for MacBook Pros with Touch Bars — could be a life saver. Instead of silicone (of which some screen protectors are made), Moshi uses thermoplastic urethane that’s about .1 mm thin, so it’s much slimmer than silicone protectors. Installing the ClearGuard is easy -- you remove the cover from protective cardboard and plastic packaging, remove two...

LG's UltraFine 5K Display Becomes Useless When...

The LG UltraFine 5K Display was designed in part by Apple to work with the New MacBook Pro and as a replacement for the Thunderbolt Display, which was discontinued late last year. According to 9to5Mac, the display apparently wasn't designed to work next to routers as it will flicker, disconnect, or freeze computers when it's within two meters of a router due to electromagnetic interference. The Verge reports: In emails to 9to5Mac, LG acknowledged the problem -- which LG says isn't an issue for any of its other monitors -- noting that routers "may affect the performance of the monitor" and that users should "have the router placed at least two meters away from the monitor" to avoid issues. Once the monitor was moved into a different room away from the router, 9to5Mac says the issues subsided. Despite the fact that it's insane to require a router to be far away from what is likely the main computer in your home, there's been no indication that LG is working on a fix for the issue,...

iOS 10.3 introduces new capabilities like Find My AirPods, but one change that went somewhat under the radar is a new feature aiming to improve Siri and artificial intelligence as a whole. As detailed by ZDNet, a new iCloud Analytics feature aims to collect data from users and use it do improve Siri and other smart features.

We’ve noted several times that Apple desperately needs to improve Siri, especially if a standalone Siri Speaker is in the pipeline. Would you opt-in to iCloud Analytics if you knew it would help Siri?

Siri wants to help you enjoy the Super Bowl

As the Super Bowl countdown begins, Siri is gearing up for Sunday’s Big Game. For the first time, Apple TV users can now ask Siri to tune in live to the Super Bowl just by saying, “Watch the Super Bowl." 

The personal digital assistant on macOS Sierra, iOS and Apple TV devices can also provide even more football insights including team rosters, player comparisons, historical stats, season records and more. Siri can even help with game day planning by telling fans where to watch the game, who’s performing during the halftime show and reminding them to pick up snacks as they head out the door.

The New England Patriots will take on the Atlanta Falcons at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, on Sunday, Feb. 5, at 6:30 pm (Eastern). My prediction: I’m going against the odds and predicting the Falcons will fly away with a victory (of about 7 points).

Starbucks has a new barista—and it’s a virtual assistant.

On Monday, Starbucks launched a new feature for its iOS app that lets certain customers place their orders ahead of time via a voice-controlled bot. My Starbucks Barista uses artificial intelligence and a messaging interface so that customers can place their order using natural-language voice commands or text.

The feature is currently in beta and will roll out initially to 1,000 iOS users. The company plans to expand My Starbucks Barista nationwide throughout this upcoming summer, and the feature will also be coming to Android soon.

Yesterday AppleInsider reported that Apple has taken down the iCloud Activation Lock status page on its website. The tool offered a way of determining whether a used iPhone, iPad, iPod, or Apple Watch was stolen. There was no explanation from Apple for the move. However, MacRumors has apparently found one.

Evidently, the Activation Lock website was a vital part of a bypass hack used to unlock devices bricked by Activation Lock. The process is demonstrated in a video

at the MacRumors website. This could explain — but we’re not certain — a mysterious Apple ID bug that's...

Theater Mode is intended to be used at the movie theater where lighting up a small screen accidentally when you raise your wrist can be distracting. Theater Mode may be useful in other situations despite its name. With a few tweaks, Theater Mode could be especially ideal for drivers.
