The Apple Maps experience today is dramatically better than it was when the product first launched with iOS 6 in 2012, but Apple is still looking for ways to improve its data collection and compete with Google Maps. According to a report from Bloomberg, the next stage in this effort is to use a fleet of drones from DJI, Aibotix, and others to look at street signs, track road construction, and examine other changes. It's not clear if these drones will replace or merely augment the data already being...

News: Report: Fitbit to acquire Pebble

Fitbit is putting the final touches on a deal to acquire Pebble, according to a report from The Information (via TechCrunch).

The Information also indicates that the deal is more about Fitbit acquiring…

Apple applied for an FAA exemption in late 2015 that would allow it to fly drones for commercial purposes, and received approval earlier this year.

Marco della Cava, USA Today [WARNING: AutoPlay, Grrr]

Apple CEO Tim Cook rocks in his chair as he meets the question with an unyielding gaze.

“Of course corporations should have values, because people should have values,” says the soft-spoken tech leader, who has been vocal on a range of civic issues, from gay rights to privacy rules. “And corporations are just a bunch of people.”

Cook met with USA TODAY to discuss the company’s expanded corporate partnership with (RED), the 20-person organization founded by U2 singer Bono that has had an outsized impact on those suffering from HIV/AIDS by providing life-saving medicines.

This is a pretty interesting article, digging into both RED’s impact on HIV/AIDS sufferers and Apple’s position in the emerging political reality.

Mark Gurman and Alan Levin, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. plans to use drones and new indoor navigation features to improve its Maps service and catch longtime leader Google, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Cupertino, California-based company is assembling a team of robotics and data-collection experts that will use drones to capture and update map information faster than its existing fleet of camera-and-sensor ladened minivans, one of the people said.

Apple wants to fly drones around to do things like examine street signs, track changes to roads and monitor if areas are under construction, the person said. The data collected would be sent to Apple teams that rapidly update the Maps app to provide fresh information to users, the person added.

Apple is also developing new features for Maps, including views inside buildings and improvements to car navigation, another person familiar with the efforts said. The people asked not to be identified...

IDC: tablet market to rebound in 2018

This could be good news for the iPad: worldwide tablet shipments are expected to decline by 12% in 2016, rounding out the year at 182.3 million shipments, according to a new forecast from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker. The research group expects the market to rebound in 2018 though growth will remain in the low single digits as detachable tablets slowly gain traction.

"The benefits of a thin and light design combined with a touchscreen are bolstering growth in the detachable tablet market, but are also bleeding over into the PC market as slim and convertible-type notebooks gain popularity," said Jitesh Ubrani, senior research analyst with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers.

What do you love & hate most about the 2016...

The 2016 MacBook Pro has certainly proven to be one of Apple’s more polarizing products, with split views on everything from the all-USB-C ports to the low-travel keyboard. There have been debates about the sleek form-factor versus battery life, and whether the Touch Bar is a genuinely useful innovation or a pointless gimmick – and of course much discussion about price.

I’ve of course been sharing my own thoughts, as have my colleagues, but now that many of you have finally received your shiny new machines, we thought it would be a good time to poll owners and refuseniks alike to see what you consider to be the new machine’s best and worst features …

Apple patent filings involve the Apple Watch (...

Two patent filings at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office show that Apple is at least considering future Apple Watches with round displays. Patents number 20160351107 and 20160351098 are both for an “electronic device having a display with curved edges.” The goal: “provide improved displays such as circular displays or other displays with curved edges.”

Here’s a summary of the patents: “A display may have an array of pixels. The array of pixels may have a shape such as a circular shape or other shape with a curved edge. Display driver circuitry may supply data signals to the pixels using folded vertical data lines and bisected horizontal gate lines. Each folded vertical lines may have a first segment in a left half of the array and a second segment in a right half of the display. Curved coupling segments in an inactive area of the display may be used in joining the first and second segments. Display driver circuits may be provided in top and bottom portions of the...

Fitbit may buy smartwatch maker Pebble

Fitness wristband maker Fitbit is said to be close to a deal to acquire smartwatch maker Pebble, mainly for its intellectual property.

Fitbit is aiming to acquire Pebble’s assets particularly the PebbleOS, which has a large number of apps running on it and can be paired with both Apple’s iOS and Android, The Financial Times said Wednesday, citing several people close to the negotiations.

It is not clear how much Fitibit will be paying for the company. Both Pebble and Fitbit did not respond to requests for comment on the rumored acquisition. The Information also reported on a likely acquisition.

Pebble, which gave the smartwatch market a fillip in 2012 with a campaign on the crowdfunding Kickstarter platform, has veered around to a greater focus on fitness and other devices like a cellular-connected clip called Core. Its Time 2 and Pebble 2 were unveiled this year, adding a heart-rate monitor to the watches.

Apple now accepting Apple Watch on trade-in site,...

Jordan Kahn, 9to5mac:

Earlier today Apple updated its website where customers can send in an old device for recycling to include the Apple Watch. That means that customers can now send their old Apple Watch to be responsibly recycled through the company’s Apple Renew program free of charge, but it’s not offering customers a gift card or any credit in exchange like it does with iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

Not sure what the secondary market is like for earlier Apple Watches, but seems to me it’d be much better to give your old Apple Watch to a friend who’s never experienced one. Reuse is a solid alternative to recycling, and living with an Apple Watch offers a better alternative to simply reading about one.

Aqua and Bondi: The road to OS X and the computer...

New book from Stephen Hackett. It’s an 80 page look at a critical time for Apple, a time that saw Bondi Blue, Tangerine, and Flower Power iMacs and the birth of a brand new operating system.

Aqua and Bondi is an 80-page examination of these products. In it, I look at what went so wrong inside Apple in the 90s, talk about the software strategies that came and went over the years and, of course, the iMac.

I’ve been working on this project since the fall, and am excited to say today that the book is for sale today on the iBooks Store or as a PDF. Both versions are just $3.99.

An Indiegogo campaign which just got fully-funded has a particularly interesting-looking one which is specifically pitched at Apple’s laptops – starting at $149.

The Line Dock takes the form of an aluminum base unit designed to sit directly underneath your Mac. Available in 12-, 13- and 15-inch sizes to match the dimensions of Apple’s machines, it offers roughly 15 hours of additional battery-life. And for those mourning the loss of ports, it also offers 3 x USB 3.0 sockets alongside...

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for macOS rose, but that for iOS dipped again in November.

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 6.74% of the global market share in November, up from 6.43% percent in October (that’s global market share; in the US it’s over 13%). April 2016’s 9.2% was an all-time high, according to NetMarketShare’s measurements. Windows remains dominant with 90.95% as of November.

iOS had 25.71% of the mobile operating system market share in November, down from 27.78% in October. This compares to 68.67% for Android, 1.75% for Windows Phone, and 1.57% for Java ME. The all-time high for iOS was in July 2012 with 65.94%.

Perhaps most interestingly, the report says Apple plans to deploy a fleet of flying drones to help with data collection efforts for Apple Maps. The drones would be able to analyze street signs, track the status of roadworks and more. Apple does not plan to release a drone as a consumer item to compete with products like the Parrot Drone; the fleet would be for its own private business uses.

This Mujjo for the iPhone 7 Plus is a great case,...

The Mujjo Leather Case for iPhone 7 Plus, approximately $40, is a “wallet case” for the iPhone. It’s a gorgeous case, but not a very practical wallet, at least for me.

First, let’s examine at its strengths. Made out of high-quality, vegetable tanned leather, it looks great out of the box, and should acquire a striking patina over time as constant use helps break it in. The Leather Case is equipped with Mujjo’s Moulded Edge Technology, a polycarbonate solution that toughens the edges of the case and helps it to withstand the wear and tear caused by friction against jeans pockets. 

Whether you can comfortable place an iPhone 7 Plus in your pockets is another matter. It fits okay in the lower pockets of my cargo pants, but is simply too big to fit comfortable in my blue jeans pockets. 

As you’d expect, the openings of the Mujjo Leather Case expose the volume rockers and...

 The data also shows that as advertisers see sustained returns and recognize the opportunity to find high quality users on the maturing Android platform, the marketplace is becoming flooded with competition, especially as the holiday season approaches.

Wearable action-camera maker GoPro Inc said on Wednesday it would cut about 15 percent of its workforce and shutter its entertainment business, as the one-time Wall Street favorite cuts costs to help it return to profitability.

I hate seeing people lose their jobs.

Apple apologizes for iCloud calendar invite spam,...

Some Apple users have been plagued with iCloud calendar invite spam in recent weeks, with calendar periods being blocked up with unsolicited events from anonymous senders (usually with Chinese names). It is thought that the spammers are mass targeting any iCloud email account it can find on the web, rather than targeting specific users.

Apple has now acknowledged the issue in a statement to iMore, starting with an apology to anyone who has received iCloud calendar spam. The company says it is actively “identifying and blocking suspicious senders” to try and stem the arrival of the junk messages.

Apple shares new trailer for Apple Music exclusive...

Ahead of the Apple Music exclusive stream of the documentary ‘808’ set for Dec. 9, Apple has tweeted a new trailer for the film that focuses on Roland’s iconic TR-808 drum machine. ‘808’ was originally shown at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival and is just shy of 7/10 stars on IMDb as of this writing. Atlantic Records is offering the soundtrack album now and looks to be selling apparel in the near future. The tracklist includes a wide variety of genres and artists ranging from Hip Hop Be Bop (Don’t Stop) by Man Parrish, Paul Revere by the Beastie Boys, to Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz.

How Tribal Warfare Caused Apple’s Loss of Gloss

Modern tribes are groups formed of one mind held together by their beliefs and easy, fast communication. They work to obtain a voice in the community and are often at war with each other or Apple over some technical topic. Apple tends to dismiss these tribes and focus on the customer, but tribes can have an influence too. Understanding Apple’s intentions and vision against the torch of the tribes is a tricky process. John explains.

Podcast 536: Made in America

The days are getting shorter, the Thanksgiving leftovers are dwindling, and we still aren't able to buy AirPods, but one of these days we will be. Until then, we have a holiday potpourri of topics for you.

First up? Calendar spam, calendar spam, doing the things a calendar can. Then a video that will crash your iPhone (and no, it's not worth it), a new streaming service from AT&T, and the Apple Store doing right by customers with wonky iPhone 6s batteries or dead SSDs. Later, could Apple really make iPhones in America? And what's the best way to make Twitter less awful?

The Apple Daily Report for Nov. 30, 2016

The AWT News Update is on hiatus while my compadre, Steve, takes a road trip. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

Apple has updated its website where customers can send in an old device for recycling to include the Apple Watch. That means that customers can now send their old Apple Watch to be responsibly recycled through the company’s Apple Renew program free of charge, but it’s not offering customers a gift card or any credit in exchange like it does with iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

Apple announced at WWDC in June that Apple Pay would be coming to Spain at some point this year, and Spanish site Applesfera is reporting that the service will launch tomorrow for Banco...

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

iOS Apps/Updates

Playmage has introduced Final Chronicle, a fantasy role-playing game (RPG)  that takes players on an epic adventure to save the world from sinister Tides of Cataclysm. You fight evil monsters, maidens, pirates, angels, bosses and dragons. Final Chronicle is free, but does tout in-app purchases.

Recognizing the growing market for The Final Station in the open source community, the developers have made their hot-selling title available for the Linux OS. The indie game, which Do My Best Games and TinyBuild launched for PC, Mac, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this summer, became available for Linux last week. Although the post-civilization genre is fairly crowded space, the zombie-killing horror ride has earned generally positive reviews from veteran games critics, who appreciated its narrative and level of detail.

Review: Twelve South HiRise Duet for Apple Watch and...

Twelve South's HiRise Duet ($120) is a new dock that can charge an Apple Watch and iPhone simultaneously. As you'd expect from Twelve South, HiRise Duet is made of high-end materials — its metal construction is accentuated by leather, and a rubber base prevents the stand and dock from scuffing up a surface. A magnetic Apple Watch charging disc is built right into the front of the stand, allowing an Apple Watch to charge while in Nightstand mode. The Lightning connector above can be adjusted to fit different iPhone cases, and HiRise Duet will even dock and charge an iPad, excluding the supersized 12.9" iPad Pro. Twelve South's dock comes with its own AC adapter — users don't have to provide any of their own cables.

Wielding Their Windows Phones, Microsoft...

At a meeting with shareholders Wednesday, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella was asked numerous times what the company is doing about Windows Phones, and why do they keep hearing that Microsoft is abandoning smartphone manufacturer business. The stakeholders also asked why the company is seemingly focusing more on Android and iOS rival platforms instead of its own. From a report on GeekWire: Microsoft shareholder Dana Vance, owner of a Windows Phone and a Microsoft Band, said he received an email about the Microsoft Pix app but was surprised to learn that it was available for iPhone and Android but not Windows Phone. Ditto for Microsoft Outlook. He also alluded to reports that Microsoft has put the Band on the back burner. Given this, he asked Nadella to explain the company's vision for its consumer devices. As part of his response, Nadella said Microsoft's Windows camera and mail apps will include the same features as in Microsoft's apps for other platforms. "When we control things...

If you had to replace your iMac display hinge because the screen kept tilting forward, Apple is ready to give you a refund.

According to a new internal service document, Apple will be offering refunds to customers who paid to repair or replace a faulty iMac hinge. In the service document, Apple admits that some 27-inch iMac models shipped between December 2012 and July 2014 may have been affected by an issue with the display hinge. It would not be able to support the weight of the screen, making it impossible to adjust because it just kept tilting forward. Apple sent the internal service document to Apple Authorized Service Providers, and it was then obtained by MacRumors.
