Apple releases watchOS 3.2 developer beta with...

Apple has released a developer beta of watchOS 3.2. It can be be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center — if you’re a registered developer, that is.

The watchOS 3.2 beta adds Theater Mode and SiriKit. The former lets Apple Watch owners disable the "rise to wake" function on the watch, but still notify them with haptic feedback of notifications without illuminating the watch display. 

SiriKit enables apps to work with Siri, Apple’s “personal digital assistant,” so users can get things done with content and services using just their voice. In addition to extending Siri’s support for messaging, photo search and phone calls to more apps, SiriKit also adds support for new services, including ride booking and personal payments.

Tim Cook: ‘Apple would not exist without immigration’

Apple has championed the causes of marriage equality and environmental sustainability in recent years, so its employees looked to the company’s leadership in the wake of President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration from predominantly Muslim countries. The order, which restricts immigration from seven countries and outright bans refugees from Syria, was handed down late Friday and led to protests in several U.S. cities and at airports where refugees were being detained.

“Apple would not exist without immigration, let alone thrive and innovate the way we do,” Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote in an email to the company’s employees, later published by Re/code. “I’ve heard from many of you who are deeply concerned about the executive order issued yesterday restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. I share your concerns. It is not a policy we support.”

LG UltraFine 5K Display has a critical usability issue, however, that doesn’t affect other external monitors: the hardware can become unusable when located within 2 meters of a router.

As You Wish, tales of The Princess Bride

Rob Griffiths:

This post isn’t about the movie. It’s about a book about the making of the movie, written by Cary Elwes, who starred as Westley, aka The Man in Black. And in the interest of thoroughness, the book’s full title isn’t As You Wish, it’s As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride.

And:

what really made the book for me were all the quotes that Cary secured from others involved in the production. These are present throughout the book, and you seldom need read more than a page before encountering one.

If you are a fan of The Princess Bride (and who isn’t?), this is a terrific read and, I suspect, would make a great gift.

Even better, consider upgrading to the audio book. According to Paul Goracke, the audiobook is not only narrated by Cary, but by the cast members (except Mandy and, of course, Andre).

Joe Rossignol, Mac Rumors:

Apple has removed its Activation Lock status checker on iCloud.com at some point in the past few days. The tool enabled users to enter the serial number or IMEI of an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and find out if the device is secured with Activation Lock, helping buyers avoid purchasing a device locked to another user.

Not clear why this has happened. Wondering if the tool was being misused in some way. I suspect the story will emerge over the next few days. Keep an eye out.

Tim Cook on immigration executive order

Tim Cook, in an email to employees:

Team,

In my conversations with officials here in Washington this week, I’ve made it clear that Apple believes deeply in the importance of immigration — both to our company and to our nation’s future. Apple would not exist without immigration, let alone thrive and innovate the way we do.

I’ve heard from many of you who are deeply concerned about the executive order issued yesterday restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. I share your concerns. It is not a policy we support.

There are employees at Apple who are directly affected by yesterday’s immigration order. Our HR, Legal and Security teams are in contact with them, and Apple will do everything we can to support them. We’re providing resources on AppleWeb for anyone with questions or concerns about immigration policies. And we have reached out to the White House to explain the negative effect on our coworkers and our company.

As I’ve said...

eMarketer: iPhone market share to remain static;...

Apple's share of smartphone users in the U.S. will remain basically static in 2017, accounting for a 43.7% share, according to a new eMarketer report. Android, by comparison, will account for 52.2% of US smartphone usage in 2017, adds the research group.

Although the number of iPad users continues to increase, eMarketer expects Apple’s share of the tablet market to steadily decline through 2021. In 2017, Apple's share of the tablet market will be 46.7%, down from 47.8% last year.

In 2017, eMarketer estimates that 51.4% of Americans will use a tablet once a month, totaling 167.7 million people.

Apple TV is at the bottom of the US connected TV market, behind Google Chromecast and Roku, with its share shrinking, according to eMarketer. This year, 11.9% of connected TV users will subscribe to Apple TV, compared with 19.9% for Chromecast and 18.2% for Roku, according to the research group.

Apple: reconsider ruling that we can be sued for...

Apple asked the Ninth Circuit on Friday to reconsider a published decision that revived a suit claiming that the Cupertino, California-based company monopolizes the market for iPhone apps, arguing in its petition that the panel hadn’t properly considered whether the consumer class could allege that they were directly harmed by distribution fees, according to s the legal website, Law360.

The panel's decision earlier this month revived a California federal lawsuit. Earlier this month the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that iPhone app purchasers may sue Apple over allegations that the company monopolized the market for iPhone apps by not allowing users to purchase them outside the Apple App Store, leading to higher prices.

A group of iPhone users sued, saying the tech giant’s practice is anticompetitive. Apple argued that users didn’t have standing to sue it because they purchased apps from developers, with...

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board has found in an America Invents Act “between the parties" review that Apple proved a number of claims of a Core Wireless text messaging patent to be “invalid as obvious over prior art,” reports the legal website, Law360.

In a final written decision, the PTAB said that the Cupertino, California-based company had shown that nearly a dozen claims of Core Wireless’ U.S. Patent Number 7,693,552 B2 are invalid. In December a California federal jury ruled that iPads and iPhones infringe two of Core Wireless Licensing SARL's mobile communication patents, awarding Core Wireless $7.3 million in damages in a long-running fight over technology that purportedly allows Apple's products to work "wherever, and whenever.”

The case centered on two patents that were originally owned by Nokia. In March 2015 a Texas jury ruled that Apple didn't five wireless patents formerly held by Nokia that were sold...

Step into the future of car navigation with HUDWAY...

Fighter pilots and now commercial airline pilots are familiar with the concept of head-up displays that let them keep their eyes on what's happening ahead while still receiving important information. Although car navigation systems provide audible prompts, wouldn't it be nice to have a display of directions or other info in your direct field of view while driving? That's the idea behind HUDWAY Glass (US$49.95), a solution that turns your iPhone and compatible apps into a heads-up display for your car.

HUDWAY Glass magnifies the reflected image from your phone by 20%, allowing you to see navigation prompts, speed, or other data "floating" in front of you as you drive. Still unclear on the concept? Here's a short video showing how it works:

External Link: Apple Versus Amazon in the Smart Home...

Stephen Nellis of Reuters has penned an article examining the difference in how Apple and Amazon approach home automation. Hardware manufacturers who want to sell HomeKit devices must include special chips and produce their accessories in Apple-approved factories. After that, manufacturers must send their devices to Apple for a lengthy approval process. By comparison, getting a device to work with Amazon’s Alexa personal assistant requires just a software review, although getting a “Works with Alexa” label requires hardware testing but can be done by a third-party lab and takes no more than 10 days. As a result, Alexa threatens to overwhelm HomeKit with the number of compatible devices, but Apple’s approach leads to easier setup, higher security, and better compatibility. Also, Apple HomeKit devices do not require an Internet connection, which improves both security and response times.

Without hint or warning, Apple has removed the iCloud Activation Lock status page, which used to exist at iCloud.com/activationlock, but that URL now leads to a 404 error instead. The utility let anyone type in the IMEI or serial number of an iOS device to find out if Activation Lock had been turned off, something which proved to be useful to verify the authenticity of a seller when buying a used iPhone online.

References to the web page have been removed from Apple’s support documentation, indicating this is not a temporary issue and the page has been intentionally pulled from service.

A previous Apple support document recommended that users check the Activation Lock status of an iOS device before buying it to ensure that the product was ready to use. The text was removed on January 24th and the iCloud.com/activationlock URL stopped working not long afterwards.

Apple has yet to provide another means of finding out about the Activation Lock status without...

Just two days after Tim Cook expressed his opposition to executive orders signed by President Trump to limit immigration, Bloomberg suggests that Trump’s next move could be to target foreign workers employed by Apple and other tech companies.

His administration has drafted an executive order aimed at overhauling the work-visa programs technology companies depend on to hire tens of thousands of employees each year. 

If implemented, the reforms could force wholesale changes at India companies such as Infosys  and Wipro, and shift the way American companies like Microsoft , Amazon and Apple recruit talent …

I’m eagerly awaiting the 2017 iMac, which I think will arrive this spring (hopefully, in March). And I’d love for it to contain an audio system similar to that of the recently announced Dell XPS 27.

Its an all-in-one computer with almost certainly the best built-in audio setup around. The sound system has a distinctive integrated sound bar which includes 10 discrete speakers powered and controlled by digital dynamic amplifiers producing 50W per channel. 

According to Dell, “two tweeters produce clean high notes and crystal clear voices with lively, yet accurate stereo imaging,” “four full range drivers provide a powerful punch and clear, accurate midrange,” and “two passive radiators reinforce the lows and provide a rich, deep bass.”

The XPS 27 is the apparently the world’s first personal computer with two independent, down-firing full range speakers. These work to...

“There are employees at Apple who are directly affected by yesterday's...

Tech sector bosses decry Trump immigration order on...

Enlarge / Demonstrators block traffic at the international arrival terminal as they protest against a Muslim immigration ban at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday. President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday that suspends entry of all refugees for 120 days, indefinitely suspends the entries of all Syrian refugees, as well as barring entries from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering for 90 days. (credit: Stephen Lam/Getty Images)

President Donald Trump's order Friday banning immigrants and visitors from seven Muslim nations is being met by both harsh and somber verbal resistance from top tech sector leaders—from Apple to Y Combinator. The move was racist, affected perhaps thousands of tech workers, and was un-American, the executives said in tweets, e-...

Apple Pay spreads to over a dozen countries

Apple Pay, launched in the U.S. in the fall of 2014, has now spread to over a dozen countries, according to the "Apple Pay Profile 2017” report from Research and Markets. 

Figures from Apple Pay's largest market, the U.S., indicate that over a third of retailers of various segments now accept Apple Pay, according to the research group. Surveys cited in its report show that utilization of the Apple mobile payment system trails awareness of the ability to do so among iPhone users, but usage has increased over the past two years.

What’s more, according to the latest procurement market intelligence report from Technavio, the global mobile wallet services market — such as Apple Wallet — is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate [CAGR] of 42% over the next five years due...

Analyst: 2017 iPhone may offer facial recognition (...

In a note to clients — as noted by Business Insider -- Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri said that the “iPhone 8” could include "some form of facial/gesture recognition.”

He writes: "Other features appear to include some form of facial/gesture recognition supported by a new laser sensor and an infrared sensor mounted near the front-facing camera and, as expected, should also finally include wireless charging.”

Cowen is also expecting a new 5.8-inch iPhone in addition to existing 4.7- and 5.5-inch models. The super-sized smartphone will reportedly have an OLED screen, which uses less power and produces deeper blacks. Cowen prognosticates that the 5.8-inch model will have a "wraparound" design and will integrate the Touch ID fingerprint sensor "under the glass and in the active display area.”

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Stack: Apple is to offer its iPhone 7 as the "device of choice" for the UK military's secure communications. British telecom giant BT is said to be hardening the Apple device in order for it to be able to handle the Ministry of Defense's military communications, including state secrets and highly-sensitive data. While BT has not provided further details on the development, due to security reasons, the telco is reportedly in the process of upgrading the iPhone 7 to support various modes of operation and to add secure apps or "storage containers," as well as military-grade encryption features among other enhancements. The iPhone 7 will now replace Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 smartphone, which was originally selected for the project, as security in the Samsung model was found to be inadequate.
