Designed with creative types in mind, not only does Craft provide a very slick design, but it’s extremely solidly built and brings a whole new workflow with the new Crown — an aluminum dial that can be used to access context-specific tools, ranging from more obvious features like volume and brightness control right through to adjusting brightness, contrast, and saturation in Photoshop or adjusting charts in Excel. Smart backlighting not only adjusts automatically based on room conditions, but also remains off until Craft detects your hands approaching the keyboard — a cool and almost magical feature.

Qualcomm Seeks China iPhone Ban, Escalating Apple...

Qualcomm filed lawsuits in China seeking to ban the sale and manufacture of iPhones in the country, the chipmaker's biggest shot at Apple so far in a sprawling and bitter legal fight. From a report: The San Diego-based company aims to inflict pain on Apple in the world's largest market for smartphones and cut off production in a country where most iPhones are made. The product provides almost two-thirds of Apple's revenue. Qualcomm filed the suits in a Beijing intellectual property court claiming patent infringement and seeking injunctive relief, according to Christine Trimble, a company spokeswoman. "Apple employs technologies invented by Qualcomm without paying for them," Trimble said. An Apple spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday. Qualcomm's suits are based on three non-standard essential patents, it said. They cover power management and a touch-screen technology called Force Touch that Apple uses in current iPhones, Qualcomm said. The...

Thanks to Hullo for sponsoring the Loop this week. A hot, sweaty, flat pillow will wake even the deepest sleeper. Soft traditional pillows collapse under the weight of your head which can cause strains in your neck, shoulders and back. They also retain body heat, which can make sleep uncomfortably warm. It’s time to abandon tradition and try something new!

Have You Ever Slept on a Buckwheat Pillow?

They’re totally different than the soft spongey pillows you’re used to. A buckwheat pillow is sort of like a beanbag for your head. Their unique and firm support simply can’t be matched by traditional pillows. The buckwheat hull filling will perfectly conform to the shape of your head and neck, providing comfortable support all night long. Buckwheat pillows also allow air to move freely though your...

Review: JBL Pulse 3 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

If you've been following our headphone reviews this year, you've seen us examine a few headphones that feature integrated lighting. We've been puzzled by this trend — why waste battery powering LEDs that don't make the music sound any better? Is this how kids are getting each other's attention these days? If we had been asked whether we thought adding lights to a speaker was a good idea, we probably would have responded with something equally old-headed and puritanical. Luckily, nobody asked our opinion — someone from JBL simply handed us the Pulse 3 and asked us to try it out. Color us surprised: we had fun playing with the pretty lights.{/exp:char_limit}

Qualcomm tries to stop iPhone sales in China

The is the latest in a long legal battle between the supplier and Apple. Qualcomm previously requested an iPhone ban in the U.S.

AT&T recently revealed some of its Q3 data, and the carrier says it saw 900,000 fewer smartphone upgrades compared to the year ago quarter. A recent Bloomberg piece suggests that the AT&T drop in year-over-year smartphone sales could be a sign that the iPhone 8 isn’t doing so hot.

If the iPhone 8 had been a hit out of the gate, then I would have expected AT&T’s upgrade number might at least have fallen less dramatically.

It does mention that AT&T’s Q3 only included about a week of iPhone 8 sales which isn’t enough to make a judgment, and that the data includes all smartphones, not just iPhones (although it’s amazing to think about one smartphone model being able to influence an entire quarter of carrier sales in one week).

The latest smartphone OS data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech reveals that for the three months ending in August 2017, iOS posted growth in the U.S., China, Germany, France, and Spain, but performance in Great Britain dropped. 

Consolidated market share for iOS in Europe’s five largest markets was up by 1.2% year on year, held back by a resurgent Samsung in Great Britain, according to the research group. Samsung boosted Android’s growth in Great Britain with the Galaxy S8 and J3 (2016) selling well, while Apple’s flagship models lost momentum in the period prior to the new iPhone announcement, offset slightly by strong sales of the iPhone SE.

“Samsung took full advantage of the weeks just before the iPhone 8 and iPhone X were released in Great Britain, with significant promotional activity that helped drive its overall share to a three-year high of 38.4% for the three months ending August 2017,” says Dominic...

Jabil is a United States-based global manufacturing services company. Headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida, it is one of the largest companies in the Tampa Bay area. It has 90 facilities in 23 countries, including China, and 175,000 employees worldwide

Workers say the factories are laying off workers and rearranging workers' positions as iPhone 8 sales have slowed.

iPhone X makers still struggling to perfect Face ID...

Nikkei Asian Review:

A tech executive familiar with iPhone X production told Nikkei Asian Review on Thursday that manufacturers are still struggling to perfect 3-D sensors and in particular dot projectors in Apple premium handset’s TrueDepth camera system, though the person could not pinpoint exactly the problem.

And:

The executive’s comments were confirmed by Jeff Pu, an analyst with Taipei-based Yuanta Investment Consulting, who also identified the dot projector as the troublesome component holding back mass production of iPhone X.

Nonetheless, Pu stuck to his view voiced late September that iPhone X will enter mass production in mid-October and begin to be shipped from China in the third week of this month. He is, however, cutting his forecast of the volume of iPhone X that will be produced this year, from 40 million units to 36 million.

KGI: All 2018 iPhones to adopt Face ID as Apple...

Chance Miller, 9to5Mac:

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is out tonight with a new investor note. Kuo explains that, despite initially believing Apple might readopt fingerprint technology, it’s now likely that all 2018 iPhone models will move to Face ID and leave Touch ID in the past.

I get it. The iPhone X is the future, charting the path of the next generations of iOS devices. But there is some value in being able to unlock my iPhone without looking at it.

With Touch ID, I can extend my arm to tap my iPhone on an awkwardly placed Apple Pay terminal, use my finger to verify my identity. The angle of my phone doesn’t matter.

That said, I’ll wait for the iPhone X and Face ID experience. After all, Apple product folks have been living with Face ID. I can’t imagine they’d abandon Touch ID if it still had value.

As always, take these sorts of rumors with a grain of salt.

Tim Cook famously said, “If you’ve ever seen what can be created on an iPhone or an iPad with that pencil, it’s really unbelievable.”

As soon as I heard those words, I thought it inevitable that we’d see Apple Pencil support for iPhone.

iFixit CEO on the death of the repair culture

Bloomberg:

Late in the evening of Sept. 21, X-rays of the innards of the iPhone 8 appeared on Twitter. The images didn’t come from Apple. They were posted by a team from iFixit Inc., a repair-parts, tool and software company in San Luis Obispo, California, that had flown to Australia to take advantage of the 18-hour time difference to buy the new model before it became available in the U.S. When U.S.-based Apple fans woke on iPhone 8 release day, iFixit had a step-by-step guide posted for taking apart the new phone.

Wow! That is commitment.

Over the last decade, the repair culture that spawned generations of driveway mechanics, vacuum-cleaner shops and itinerant TV-fixers has been eroded by manufacturers keen to claim service contracts and revenues. They’ve used intellectual-property laws to restrict access to repair manuals and repair software for products ranging from iPhones to John Deere tractors.

This makes me crazy. I want to be able to fix...

Apple, Samsung battle over the latter’s bid for a...

Apple and Samsung fought in California federal court Thursday over what test a jury should use to calculate damages if a judge grants Samsung’s bid for a new trial in a $400 million smartphone patent war between the tech giants, reports Law360.

In January Samsung told the Federal Circuit that Apple was flat wrong in arguing that a recent U.S. Supreme Court finding on design patent awards didn’t disturb its claim on a $400 million award, saying it took “chutzpah” for the iPhone maker to try to stop Samsung’s new trial. In December 2016, the Supreme Court sided with Samsung, throwing out an appeals court ruling that said the South Korean company had to pay a $399 million penalty to its American rival for copying key...

Rumor: iPhones will gain Apple Pencil compatibility...

Apple plans to offer Apple Pencil compatible iPhones “as early as 2019,” according to The Investor, quoting unnamed “industry sources.” Currently for iPad Pros only, the stylus … er, pencil … debuted in 2016.

Along with the stylus technology, Apple's current A-series mobile chip may undergo a drastic upgrade to better support handwriting functions of the planned stylus, adds The Investor. 

There’s evidence that this rumor may actually come true. In May, Apple filed for a patent (number 9,648,7040) for “devices and methods for manipulating user interfaces with a stylus.” The patent mentioned use of the device with iPads, iPhones, and even macOS devices.

Analyst: Apple will go all in with Face ID in 2018...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analysts Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Apple will completely abandon its Touch ID capacitive fingerprint recognition system in favor of the “depth-sensing technology when it introduces next year's iPhone lineup.

We believe this change will allow all new models to realize a competitive advantage via differentiation, on the back of an integrated user experience of full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera/Facial recognition/Face ID/AR applications," he writes.

In September, Kuo said that IF Face ID on the iPhone X is a hit, we’ll see it replacing Touch ID on future iPhones and iPads. Apparently, he expects it to be a hit. Kuo also anticipates that the TrueDepth camera of the iPhone X will pop up in all future iOS gadgets. 

Apple says Face ID is “even more...

There are also multiple patents for the idea, the most recent one specifically referencing the iPhone. And a new report goes even further, suggesting that the Apple Pencil – or some similar device – may be bundled with a 2019 iPhone …...

BBEdit 12 — A powerful new upgrade

BBEdit 12 is now live. It’s a powerful update, with tons of new features.

I had a chance to see a pre-release of this new version and I have to say, it’s incredible how much work Rich and the team did here. My two favorite features? Canonize and Columns.

Canonize is a search and replace supercharger, letting you build a master transformation file filled with all sorts of search and replace commands. You can even Canonize a proper case spelling of a word. So you could ask Canonize to replace all instances of noerr, NOERR, NoErr with noErr by just including noErr in your list.

Columns lets you select, copy, and rearrange columns of text or data. If you ever spend your time mucking around with datasets or delimited text, you’ll love this feature.

These are but two of many new features, the tip of the iceberg.

Here’s a summary of the high points, and a...

Rumor: Apple to abandon Touch ID in favor of facial...

A new KGI Securities investor note has stated that Apple’s Face ID may be the way of the future for upcoming iPhones and could leave Touch ID in the dust.

KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo, in a recently published note, said that Apple is likely to go all-in on 3D sensing.

The analyst writes that 3D sensing will be a “key selling point” of all new 2018 iPhone models. While Apple currently faces manufacturing difficulties with 3D sensing, Kuo says TrueDepth cameras and Face ID will help Apple “capitalize on its clear lead in 3D sensing design and production for smartphones.”

Kuo has predicted that Apple’s upcoming iPhone from here on out will abandon Touch ID and opt for facial recognition entirely. This move could allow Apple to hold an advantage in sensing technology and create a full-screen design unlike its competitors.

The note also stated that even on the Android side of things, manufacturers will opt towards 3D sensing technology as opposed to in-display or...

It had to come to an end sometime.

Microsoft has officially ended support for Office for Mac 2011. As such, there will be no further updates if anything goes wrong or stops working in Word, Excel, Powerpoint, or Outlook.

Microsoft has warned users the end was coming and made it very clear the official end of line would happen on October 12th, 2017. The company didn’t even bother to test Office 2011 for macOS High Sierra compatibility.

The company suggests upgrading to Office 2016 for Mac, which is also available for subscription.

As always, please let us know what you make of this in the comments.

Apple granted patent for a ‘self adapting alert...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170294108) for a “self adapting alert device” that would allow an iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch to autonomously adapt one or more user alerts to the current operating environment of the gadget.

In the patent filing Apple notes that electronic devices are ubiquitous in society and can be found in everything from wristwatches to computers. Many of these electronic devices are portable and also include the ability to obtain a user's attention through the use of an alert device. 

For example portable electronic devices like cellular phones and watches contain alert devices such as vibrating motors, speakers, and/or lights to attract the user's attention. Because of their portable nature, many of these portable electronic devices are made as small as possible by miniaturizing the components therein. As part of this miniaturization effort, the alert devices in the electronic devices are often made as small as possible in order to...

How to add effects to Live Photos in macOS High...

With macOS High Sierra, you can turn your Live Photos into fun videos you can share. You can click Loop for continuous action, or jump backwards and forwards with Bounce. 

Or choose Long Exposure to create a still photo with a cool blur effect. If you snapped a Live Photo, but someone is blinking, you can change the still image. Just click a frame under the photo, then click Make Key Photo. To edit Live Photos:

  • Find the Live Photo you want to edit and select it.
  • From the center of the screen, swipe up.
  • You can choose from Loop, Bounce, or Long Exposure.
  • Swipe down to see the effect in full screen.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple's support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)

Notable apps and app updates for Oct. 13, 2017

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

Eternal Storms has released Yoink for iOS 11. The $2.99 app improves and simplifies drag and drop on iPads and iPhones. The simplest way of working with Yoink is using it as a Slide-Over or Side-by-Side app and drag-dropping items to it. For example, using Yoink as a Slide-Over app on iPad allows you to dismiss it if you don't currently need it, but quickly access it again when you do.

Prosch has launched its free, online multiplayer puzzle game, 2048WARS, for the iPhone and iPad. You can compete against your friends and family, “or even the best players in the...

Google Is Really Good At Design

Joshua Topolsky, writing for The Outline: The stuff Google showed off on October 4 was brazenly designed and strangely, invitingly touchable. These gadgets were soft, colorful... delightful? They looked human, but like something future humans had made; people who'd gotten righteously drunk with aliens. You could imagine them in your living room, your den, your bedroom. Your teleportation chamber. A fuzzy little donut you can have a conversation with. A VR headset in stunning pink. A phone with playful pops of color and an interface that seems to presage what you want, when you want it. It's weird. It's subtle. It's... good. It's Google? It's Google.

It was only a few years ago that Google was actually something of a laughing stock when it came to design. As an aggressively engineer-led company, the Mountain View behemoth's early efforts, particularly with its mobile software and devices, focused not on beauty, elegance, or simplicity, but rather concentrated on flexibility,...
