Nintendo’s Mario coming to the iPhone and iPad

Nintendo’s Mario character is coming to the iPhone and iPad in a new game called Mario Run. It’s coming in time for the holidays, but pricing hasn’t yet been announced. You can play the game one-handed and engage in a new battle mode called Toad Battle. 

According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, over 140 billion apps have been downloaded from the Apple App Store. He says that users’ love affair with iPhone and iPad apps are as strong as ever. Cook says that the store generates 2x more global revenue than the closest competitor. 

“The iPhone and iPad are the most popular gaming devices in the world,” he adds. “Gaming is the biggest and most popular category on the Apple App Store: there are over 500,000 games there.”

SAN FRANCISCO—As expected, Apple has taken the wraps off of its next-generation iPhones at today's September product event. Apple confirmed the devices on Twitter with a post about the water-resistant nature of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The post came down quickly as today's event rolled on, but it is screenshotted below.

The company later revealed the new devices would come in 32GB, 18 GB, and 256GB sizes. Prices start at $649 for the iPhone 7 and $769 for the iPhone 7 Plus. Pre-orders begin on Friday, September 9, and devices will ship on Friday, September 16. iOS 10 will arrive on September 13 to support the new releases.

In addition to the waterproof nature of the devices...

Gadget Ogling: Smart Desks, New-Wave Gaming, and...


After a long, laborious process and a lot of scraping paint splotches from the floor, the office space in my new apartment is ready for me to move into, and I will soon no longer need to write this column from my kitchen table. So, I'm in the market for a desk.
With my nascent interest in standing desks, the Gaze Desk seems a decent option. It switches between standing and seated modes with a button press or adjustment through an app. The dual lift function means you can adjust the height of the monitor independently of the rest of the desk.

∞ How the one year, $99 Apple Music coupons work

Earlier today, I linked to the Walmart offer for one year of Apple Music at $99.

I went to the site and made the purchase. I got an email, immediately, telling me that the purchase was made. About an hour later, I got a second email with a link to redeem the offer.

I clicked the link, was taken to iTunes, entered my Apple ID password, and clicked to redeem the code automatically entered from the Walmart page. I was then presented with a button that said “Extend My Apple Music Membership”. I clicked the button and got a message telling me my Apple Music subscription was extended through the end of September, 2017.

More importantly, the message said my subscription would automatically be renewed at the $99 rate....

Many Looking Past iPhone 7 to Next Year's...

Reuters reports: The iPhone 7 is expected to make its global debut on Wednesday, but many consumers and investors are already setting their sights on Apple's 2017 version of the popular gadget, hoping for more significant advances. At its annual product launch in San Francisco on Wednesday, the world's most valuable publicly traded company is expected to reveal an iPhone without a headphone jack, paving the way for wireless headphones, a touch-sensitive home button that vibrates, double-lens cameras for the larger Plus edition and other incremental improvements. Apple typically gives its main product, which accounts for more than half of its revenue, a big makeover every other year and the last major redesign was the iPhone 6, in 2014. The modest updates suggest that this cycle will be three years.

If you’ve been waiting for the all-in-one mobile TV solution that will let you finally get rid of your old-fashioned cable TV subscription, the latest DIRECTV app together with AT&T’s promised streaming services look set to at last make it a practical proposition.

The latest DIRECTV app lets you watch both live and recorded shows anywhere – including the ability to download shows from your home DVR to your mobile device to watch without a net connection. And if you’re on AT&T, DIRECTV streaming doesn’t use up your mobile data allowance.

Right now, you still need the cable connection and home DVR box, but that looks set to change in the final quarter this year …

Alleged Apple trademark filings: Iris Engine, AirPod...

Apple Insider:

Trademark attorney Brian Conroy contacted AppleInsider on Tuesday with a list of trademarks that Apple is said to have filed internationally for what could be upcoming products. Amongst the trademarks are known Apple product names, like Siri, Breathe, the True Tone Display as found in the iPad Pro series, macOS Sierra with several associated spellings, and the phrase “designed by Apple in California” as seen on nearly every Apple product.

However, also listed in Apple trademark document are other phrases not immediately identifiable. Listed by Conroy as particularly notable are a mysterious “Iris Engine” and variants, plus registrations for a “Smart Button,” “Touch Bar,” “Progress Card”, and “Swift Lab.”

Also notable are “AirPod Case,” “Control Strip,” “Home Hub,” and “iBooks Storytime.”

I’d guess some of these will make more sense after today’s event, and more after (hopefully, fingers crossed) an early October event.

A new study conducted by Market Strategies International reveals that 33% of all Samsung owners show purchase interest in the anticipated “iPhone 7,” which is expected to be announced at Apple’s “See you on the 7th” media event today.

Also, nearly half (45%) of Galaxy Note owners expressed interest in the new iPhone, more than any other Samsung device user. With so many Samsung users considering iPhone 7, Apple is well-positioned to acquire customers amid challenges with the recently launched Galaxy Note 7, according to Market Strategies.

“Our conversations with customers reveal a strong likelihood that Samsung Note users are ripe for defecting to Apple,” says Greg Mishkin, vice president, research & consulting, Market Strategies. “Samsung’s recent issues are a huge boon to Apple, just as many were writing off the iPhone 7 release as insignificant.”

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, Apple’s iPhone 6s was the world’s top-selling smartphone model in the second quarter of 2016. Apple currently accounts for two of the three top-selling smartphone models shipped worldwide.

And:

The advantages that come with Lightning headphones

Kevin Fox:

Bluetooth, maligned early on for sub-par connectivity and audio quality, has come a very long way, and within a few years wired headphones will be seen as much an outlier as a wired mouse or trackpad. It’s Apple’s style to predict and support this transition at the hardware level by taking away the safety net of a headphone plug that hasn’t changed fundamentally since the ¼” jack was introduced 138 years ago. Nobody alive today has ever known a world without this plug.

To put it bluntly, headphones that plug into the 3.5mm jack are dumb. Literally. At the base level, they’re just wires conducting current to tiny speaker coils, without electronics at all. Sure, some are smarter with inline controls or analog signal processing such as bass boosting or noise cancellation, but most headphones are just dumb wires. And we know how Apple feels about wires, even if they’re pretty smart.

Lots of excitement today as Apple looks to be rolling out the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, perhaps without a headphone jack, perhaps with wireless headphones or headphones that plug into a lightning jack. There’s also likely to be an Apple Music relaunch with an improved interface and, as the bokeh invitation suggests, some dramatic camera improvements.

The event will begin at 10am PT, 1pm ET. You can watch the live stream here or on the Events channel on your Apple TV.

The Apple Store is down and presents this message:

Looking forward to seeing what Tim, Jony, and the gang have up their sleeves.

Apple’s ‘AirPods’ to use custom Bluetooth chip,...

Juli Clover, writing for MacRumors:

[KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Ku] suggests Apple is working on its own Bluetooth-like communication chip and its own Bluetooth headphones.

And:

The chip may be included in the wireless earbuds Apple has in development, which are said to be Bragi Dash-style wireless Bluetooth earbuds that are entirely wire free. The earbuds will be called “AirPods,” based on trademark filings that have been discovered, and the product could be unveiled as early as September 7 alongside the iPhone 7.

And:

According to Kuo, Apple will sell its Apple-branded Bluetooth headphones alongside its Beats line of headphones, targeting the high-end market with the “AirPods” and the mid-range market with the Beats headphones. It is not clear if that means the AirPods will be priced higher than Beats headphones are at the current time or if Apple plans to lower prices on Beats going forward.

Apple Pay may be en route to Japan with a little help from Sony.

The current rumor has it that Apple has partnered with Sony to bring its Apple Pay service to Japan. As has been previously rumored, Apple will make future versions of the iPhone compatible with Sony’s FeliCa technology to allow Japanese citizens to use Apple Pay for contactless payments at FeliCa-compatible terminals.

FeliCa is Sony’s tap-to-pay format, which has been widely adopted in Japan. It’s used to access the country’s railway and bus system, and it’s able to store e-money that can be used at vending machines, cafes, and other locations equipped with FeliCa systems. FeliCa is able to process transactions in a fraction of a second, making it suitable for use in a fast-paced transit environment...

AT&T, Qualcomm to test expanding cellular...

This is a pretty neat idea.

Communications companies Qualcomm and AT&T today announced plans to start testing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS, also known as drones) on cellular networks later this month. The goal is to analyze how drones can operate safely and more securely on commercial 4G LTE and future networks such as 5G.

The trials will take place at Qualcomm’s UAS Flight Center in San Diego, where engineers will work to mimic commercial, residential and uninhabited areas.

The team will examine coverage, signal, strength, and mobility across network cells as drones fly. Drones right now are only useful as they remain in view of the operator’s visual range. One way to break that limit is to rely on carriers, opening up the door for drones performing deliveries...

How to send text messages with Siri

Sure, you can send text messages on an iPhone or iPad using the virtual keyboard. However, it’s easier to do it using Siri, Apple’s “personal digital assistant.” Here’s how to do this:

  • Press and hold the Home button to activate Siri (or say “Hey, Siri” if you iPhone supports this feature).
  • Say something like “Text Laura Sellers” or “Send text to Laura Sellers.” Siri opens your Messages app and puts the name of the person you’re texting in the To field.
  • Siri will ask, “What do you want your message to say?” Dictate your text message.
  • When you’re done, Siri shows you the message and asks you if you want to send it.
  • Say “Yes” or “Send” to send the message. Or say “No” or “Cancel” to cancel the message.

Six Colors’ Jason Snell (via Daring Fireball) posed an interesting question in his preview of today’s launch event: how will Apple justify the removal of the headphone socket? Will it do so loudly or quietly, and what will it sell as the benefit?

What’s going to be interesting is how Apple explains the move. Does it play it off quickly with a shrug—“wireless is better”—or does it go into detail? Does the jack’s removal get blamed on some other great iPhone feature that required the space? Does Apple have a bigger story about wireless headphones that it uses to distract from the removal issue?

I’ve already suggested that Apple has been preparing the ground for some...

Will Apple do hearing aids?

By Greg Mills

Having written quite a few articles under the Greg’s Bite banner for Apple Daily Report, a couple of years back I took some time out to develop a medical diagnostic device that is used to detect Alzheimer’s Disease as much as 20 years out. That project has kept me off the streets and out of trouble, but I always enjoyed prognosticating on what the great brain trust in at Apple was doing.

I predicted Apple would launch a cool 3D printer, 3D software, an STL file store and a 3D scanner perhaps using iPhone or iPad technology.  Well, that hasn’t happened yet, but it still could.  

Predicting Apple’s new product lines has always been hit and miss, but typically, business movements that become public hint at what is to come. Case in point: digital hearing aids. Apple’s thinking when it comes to new products: disrupt an established market that is substantial enough to make serious money, find a product that people need and want...

H_Fisher writes: It has arguably inspired many other technological innovations in the fifty years since its premiere, and now another Star Trek-inspired touch could be coming to your device: the voice of Majel Barrett from the Star Trek universe's LCARS computer system. CNET reports: "The voice of LCARS was provided by Majel Barrett, who was married to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. Although Barrett sadly passed away in 2008, she took several roles on the show over the years, including nurse Christine Chapel in Star Trek: The Original Series and Betazoid ambassador Lwaxana Troi on Star Trek: The Next Generation. According to a tweet by the official Roddenberry account yesterday, this has provided enough phonetic data to perhaps get Barrett's voice appearing in upcoming new 2017 TV series Star Trek: Discovery -- and maybe even a Siri-like virtual assistant."

Localytics measured share by tallying the models among more than 100 million iPhones that reported data to the app developers that use its analytics tools.

Though everyone knows by now that Apple is working on some sort of automotive technology, no one knows if it’s a full blown “Apple Car” or hardware/software for vehicles. However, a new survey suggests that more than half of U.S. consumers would be interested in cars developed by tech giants Google and Apple.

TECHnalysis Research recently surveyed 1,000 U.S. consumers who both own a car and are planning to purchase a new one within the next two years. They were asked a wide range of questions regarding car brands, features, technologies, and much more. One of the questions specifically focused on the potential interest that consumers would have in purchasing a car sold by Apple, Google, or another major tech company.

Half of the respondents in the survey said they would give at least moderate consideration to purchasing a car from a tech...

First Annapolis has released the third edition of the Study of Mobile Banking & Payments, a semi-annual consumer research study that tracks consumer adoption and use of the mobile channel for banking and payments.
