What's up? Dock. An Apple Lightning dock

iPhone charging docks that work with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus appeared to be the sole realm of accessory manufacturers until today, when Apple introduced the new iPhone Lightning Dock (US$39). 

Design-wise it is rather plain, just a white plastic rounded square with a built-in Lightning connector, a port to plug in a USB to Lightning charging cable (don't worry, one came with your iPhone, remember?), and a 3.5mm audio line-out port. The iPhone sits at a slight angle instead of standing vertically.

The iPhone Lightning Dock is compatible with all iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 models, as well as the 5th-generation iPod touch.

Report: Apple pulled the plug on its long-rumored...

Talk of a game-changing Retina TV prototype locked away in a secret lair at 1 Infinite Loop pops up every now and again, but at this point, it’s more of a punchline than a much-anticipated product.

And while many of the Apple TV (as in television set, not set-top box) rumors can be blamed on analysts like Gene Munster, who would like to think Apple will take over the HDTV market, the company itself has fueled the fire. It was Apple CEO Steve Jobs who in 2011 told his biographer, Walter Isaacson, that he had at long last cracked the TV user interface and wanted to make an “integrated television set.” Jobs’s successor Tim Cook has also mentioned Apple’s big plans for TV...

Automatic upgrades $100 Bluetooth car dongle,...

Automatic, a Bluetooth dongle that plugs into your car’s on-board diagnostic port to stream data to your iPhone, has been updated to a new version capable of streaming to two apps at the same time. The company has also launched an ‘app store for cars’ in the form of a webpage with download links to 22 apps that are compatible with the device.

We reviewed the original model back in 2013, when Zac Hall described it as smart, fun and interesting. At the time, it could only stream data to Automatic’s own companion app, but the latest version supports two simultaneous Bluetooth data streams, allowing both Automatic and a second app to receive data simultaneously.

Compatible apps include nine business-oriented apps,...

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster finally admits he...

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, who has confidently predicted the imminent arrival of a fully-fledged Apple television year after year, has finally admitted he was just making wild guesses mistaken in his analysis.

Faced with the WSJ‘s report that Apple had considered launching its own TV set but had dropped its plans a full year ago, Munster has issued a note entitled Facing The Reality of No Apple Television, reports Business Insider.

“Given how adamant we have been about the reality of an Apple television, it’s hard to accept the reality of no Apple television,” says Munster in his note. “Our latest thinking prior to this story was that Apple would launch a television in 2016. Based on this report, we no longer expect a television to launch...

Apple just updated the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro, but some of its desktops are getting love too. The Retina 5K iMac, formerly available for $2,499, has gotten a $200 price cut. For $2,299, you get a 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) quad-core Core i5 CPU, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1TB Fusion Drive, and an AMD Radeon R9 M290X GPU. Faster CPUs and GPUs and larger non-Fusion SSDs are all still available as upgrade options, the only difference from the model that was introduced last fall is the price drop.

Joining the $2,299 Retina iMac is a new $1,999 model with lower specs. It includes a non-upgradeable 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo) quad-core Core i5 CPU, a non-upgradeable AMD R9 M290 GPU (not the M290X), 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and a...

The ultimate guide to texting with the Apple Watch

A watch has always had one main job: convey information quickly and reliably to its wearer. Way back in 1893, the Garstin Company of London produced a "Watch Wristlet" that was used by soldiers to coordinate troop movement and synchronize attacks. Over the years, various incarnations of wrist watches have provided at-a-glance information to their wearers, precisely when he or she needed it.

Apple's Watch does this as well, but with a twist: communication. And it's even cooler than the gadgets I dreamed about as a kid.

There have been predictions about an Apple television set so often and for so long that it has become a sort of running gag among Apple watchers, but a new report from The Wall Street Journal has poured yet more cold water on those forecasts. The typical "people familiar with the matter" tell the WSJ that Apple had "a small team" working on a TV set for a few years, but that the team had been disbanded and its members reassigned to other projects "more than a year ago."

The main problem, according to the report, was a lack of innovative features that would distinguish an Apple TV set from its competitors....

Behind Apple’s move to shelve TV plans

The Wall Street Journal:

Investor Carl Icahn said he expects Apple Inc. to introduce an ultra-high-definition television in 2016. But after nearly a decade of research, Apple quietly shelved plans to make such a set more than a year ago, according to people familiar with the matter.

Apple had searched for breakthrough features to justify building an Apple-branded television set, those people said. In addition to an ultra-high-definition display, Apple considered adding sensor-equipped cameras so viewers could make video calls through the set, they said.

Ultimately, though, Apple executives didn’t consider any of those features compelling enough to enter the highly competitive television market, led by Samsung Electronics Co.

It’s been an open secret for years that Apple has tested many variations of television sets but just couldn’t find a way to include features compelling enough to bring it to market. Regardless of what Icahn wants or believes, Apple...

It removed the traditional panel bar and two-column application menu. It replaced both with an expanding sidebar that lost most of the configurability and functionality of the Linux panel.

The report claims that Apple has began researching the possibility of entering the television market nearly 10 years ago, but has never been able to find a “breakthrough” feature that would set its offerings apart. Apple reportedly considered adding cameras to its TVs for FaceTime functionality. The company also looked into a...

Will Apple TV Be Busting Out All Over?


I want to believe that Apple will launch a new Apple TV hardware device in June at WWDC -- but holy macaroni, it's been more than three years since Apple introduced the third-generation Apple TV. Of course, Apple made a barely noticeable hardware tweak more than two years ago, but I'm begging for an Apple TV that's far more than just a utilitarian tool -- and on the surface, many signs seem to point toward such a revelation at WWDC. Before I get to the core rumors and signs, I should admit that a small part of me remains skeptical.

Court of Appeals Says Samsung's Legal Payments...

Mark Wilson writes: Patent lawsuits in the world of technology are nothing new, and the case between Apple and Samsung resulted in one of the largest fines ever being handed down. Samsung was order to pay $930 million in damages after a court found that the company had violated Apple patents with its smartphone and tablet designs. Today the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit overturned part of the original ruling, saying that the jury was wrong to say that Samsung infringed on Apple's trade dress intellectual property. The exact details of what this will mean are yet to come out, but it should lead to a fairly hefty reduction in Samsung's legal costs.

I was at the Qualcomm Internet of Things event in San Francisco last week during what was a major IoT event in the city. What is kind of amazing is the larger event was just a small part of the applications show that used to go on at the same time. This year it is twice the size of that older show. Companies are flocking to this IoT concept like ducks to water. This means in a few short years we are going to be up to our ears in connected things. Qualcomm plans to be at the center of this with modems, hubs, and two broad initiatives.

Appeals court slashes down Apple’s $930M win against...

The US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit wiped out (PDF) a sizable chunk of Apple's biggest legal win today, overturning parts of a 2012 jury verdict against Samsung that entitled the iPhone maker to $930 million in damages.

Apple won that trial on both patent claims and claims related to "trade dress," an amorphous part of trademark law. The Federal Circuit, which considers all patent appeals, said the trade dress claims weren't legally justified and threw them out. The Federal Circuit is leaving it to the lower court to issue a final judgment, but since those claims accounted for $382 million of Apple's big win, that's how much Apple is expected to lose. It's more than 40 percent of the verdict winnings, leaving $548...

AWT Health Club: Motivation

When you take a glance at the bottom of this post to see how I did last week, you’ll see that the results are exactly the opposite of what I wanted. In other words, my weight was up a bit and my steps per day were down. Today I’m going to talk about motivation to exercise and eat correctly, something that I apparently lack.

Motivation

The entire idea behind becoming more fit is to essentially do two things — eat less and exercise more. There are points in your life where everything is going to conspire against your achievement of those simple goals, and for me, this last week was one of them. So what are my excuses? The weather has been soggy here in Colorado with lots of rain muddying my favorite hiking path. As many of my Apple World Today friends know, I’m in an elder care situation with my parents right now that takes a surprising amount of time and energy. And finally, the stress from that situation makes me want to eat comfort food and drink...

Our friend and colleague Ted Landau has announced that he no longer plans to write professionally, noting that the end of Macworld’s print version, and the closure of TUAW and his own MacFixIt (run by CNET), marks a torch-passing moment to younger journalists. Ted’s writing career dates back to the introduction of the Mac in the mid-1980s, and he’s been a fixture ever since, penning both articles for numerous Mac outlets and a variety of books (including the classic “Sad Macs, Bombs & Other Disasters” and one of the first titles about the iPhone, our “Take Control of Your iPhone”). We’d say that we’ll miss him, but we’re sure that Ted will still be popping up on Twitter when he’s not enjoying his time offline with his wife Naomi.

News: Apple developing ‘Find my Watch’ for Apple...

Apple is currently working on a “Find my Watch” feature for Apple Watch, according to a 9to5Mac report. The feature would allow users to track the location of a Watch, or lock or swipe it remotely. It’s been noted recently that as it currently stands, Apple Watch lacks any meaningful anti-theft features. Reportedly, Apple will use “smart leashing” to implement Find my Watch — the Watch will send a signal to “establish…

Rumor: Apple to announce updated 15-inch Retina...

On the downside, Apple officially discontinued its Built-To-Order 15-inch Retina Display MacBook Pro notebook.

Still, it’s to make room for something better.

The rumor mill has it that Apple will be announcing an updated 15-inch Retina Display MacBook Pro as well as an updated 27-inch iMac.

MacG.Go has cited an unnamed source who has provided accurate information on a number of occasions in the past, but provides no further details regarding the exact specs and upgrades that could go into the two new computers. Given that the 13-inch MacBook Pro was updated back in March with the expected processing and graphics boosts, as well as a...

Appeals court: Samsung violated Apple's design...

A mixed courtroom outcome on Monday ruled that Sumsung's $930 million penalty in the ongoing patent infringement suit needs to be adjusted. While the The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit agreed with the jury's assessment that Samsung violated Apple's design and utility patents, it also ruled that the company did not infringe on Apple's trade dress

This means that the $930 million penalty will likely be reduced, once the trade dress is removed. The original penalty levied against Samsung was $1.05 billion, but Judge Lucy Koh removed $450 million from that award and set a retrial to reassess damages. The result of that retrial was the $930 million penalty, which will now be reduced even further. 

Samsung's request for a retrial was denied.

External Link: Nielsen/Norman Group Evaluates Apple...

The user-experience experts at the Nielsen/Norman Group have turned their eyes to the Apple Watch. Raluca Budiu criticizes the Apple Watch’s reliance on tiny touch targets, and notes that a left-right scrolling “deck of cards” interface works better than a list view that requires users to “pogo-stick” in and out of a detail view. Budiu also comments that Handoff would work better if your iPhone was automatically unlocked when the watch was in close proximity, as is true of the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Recommendations for developers include focusing on the essential, avoiding buttons and complex navigation, and creating bits of text that stand on their own, along with realizing that the watch is not merely a smaller phone.

You know, as they’re designed to do.

Universal Studios releases the first teaser trailer for its upcoming Steve Jobs biopic over the weekend.

The trailer, posted to YouTube by Collider, shows a few seconds of Michael Fassbender portrayal of Steve Jobs, as well as shots of costars Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former Macintosh marketing chief Joanna Hoffman and Jeff Daniels, who plays former Apple CEO John Sculley.

Not much can be gleaned about the film from its short trailer, but the clip serves to set a general tone of drama and tension between the main...

The guys at MyithZ shot the following drone footage of Apple’s Campus 2 project, which is currently under construction. The flyover offers the best look yet of the construction and surpasses the quality of Apple’s own aerial shot.

The footage also offers a look at Apple’s new auditorium that is planned to hold around 1,000 people and likely become the site of future Apple product unveilings and press events.

Most of the auditorium is underground, as noted in Apple’s blueprints above, so when complete you’ll actually only see the Apple Store-like...

Tim Cook recently addressed graduates at George Washington University, and spoke about this early days at Apple.  "I met someone who made me question everything [when I started at Apple], who upended all of my assumptions in the very best way." Of course, that someone was Steve Jobs. 

Cook also took the opportunity to joke with the crowd. "Those of you with an iPhone, just place it in silent mode," he said, "and those of you who don't have an iPhone, please pass it to the center aisle. Apple has a world-class recycling program."

Watch Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs in first...

People parked in front of the TV during Sunday night’s series finale of Mad Men caught the first glimpse of screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s long-awaited Steve Jobs biopic called, appropriately, Steve Jobs. The film hits theaters Oct. 9.

The trailer is more of a tease than anything at a minute long, and doesn’t give away any plot points (though Sorkin’s script leaked earlier this year, if you’re dying to know what it’s about). But we do see Michael Fassbender as Jobs, complete with black turtleneck and glasses, on stage at an Apple event, and hear him defending his role as a visionary.

Review: Apple Watch as a watch, a gadget, and...

Apple Watch has been out for over three weeks and I’ve been using mine now for most of that time, from the moment I wake up to just before bed each night. While my colleague Ben Lovejoy previously journaled his experience in his excellent “A skeptic’s Apple Watch diary” series, I’ve been sold on the appeal of Apple Watch since the first day I paired a Pebble smartwatch with my iPhone and discovered its potential…and potential pitfalls.

Apple Watch faces new limitations different than Pebble or traditional watches, digital or analog, but it’s arguably the best smartwatch for iPhone owners with the coin to drop. It’s usefulness depends largely on your own needs — in some cases that’s the need to tinker with a new gadget — just as its drawbacks depend on your priorities. Below I walk through my Apple Watch evaluation including what I think Apple gets right and where I feel Apple Watch can grow going...

Apple was originally awarded $1B in damages, before $450M of that was vacated and a retrial ordered to determine a revised sum. The retrial awarded Apple $290M instead for that element of the case, giving Apple a revised total award of $930M.

First teaser trailer for the Steve Jobs movie

The first teaser trailer for the Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs movie went live this weekend. It's brief, but we get our first look at the actors as the major players, including Michael Fassbender as Steve himself. 

While Fassbender doesn't look exactly like Jobs, he seems to have the voice down. Just listen to the cadence, the pitch, the timbre....it's amazing. I'm also eager to see Seth Rogen as Woz, and I'm always up for a Kate Winslet performance. She's great.

An anonymous reader writes: Apple is still sprinting to catch up with Google with its navigation software — the company just acquired Coherent Navigation, a startup focused on GPS tech. Its navigation services are reportedly more precise than most commercial-grade systems. Their system "combines signals from the traditional mid-earth orbit GPS satellites with those from the low-earth satellites of voice and data provider Iridium to offer greater accuracy and precision, higher signal integrity, and greater jam resistance." They've already worked with Boeing and the U.S. Department of Defense. Apple didn't disclose the terms of the deal or explain any specific plans for the GPS technology.

How Apple keeps my far-flung family together

Modern technology gets a bad rap for creating distance between people (how many tiresome memes have we all seen depicting people playing on their iPhones instead of talking to each other?)

For the Caolo family -- which began in 1970‘s Scranton, Pennsylvania and today is spread across Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania and Florida -- Apple's computers and software are literally, part of the family. The part that keeps us together.

"Not long ago," my mom told me during a FaceTime interview for this article, "telephones and email were the limit of contact from afar. Today, Grandma and Grandpa (my husband and I) use a MacBook Air and one iPad each."

"When we hear the message alert tone, we look forward to seeing what it is, especially photos. But our favorite app is Path."

∞ Steve Jobs movie first look

Universal pictures has unveiled the “first look” clip from the upcoming movie about Steve Jobs. It’s just a teaser but it looks interesting. Fassbinder was an odd choice to portray jobs but he is a very good actor and the rest of the cast is equally accomplished.

One of the odd things about getting older is movies are being made about the times I’ve lived in and, in the case of parts of this movie, events and presentations I was at and tangentially involved in. It’s kind of a weird feeling and I don’t know how unbiased I’m going to be watching this film. But I am looking forward to seeing it.

For many of the largest Silicon Valley technology companies, mapping software undergirds numerous software applications and features in their products. For Apple, it is little different. To that end, Apple confirmed in an email on Sunday that it had bought Coherent Navigation, a Bay Area navigation company, further bolstering Apple’s mapping technology and services.

This is obviously a move by Apple to continue to improve its Maps app. The Sunday confirmation from Apple is interesting too. Another sign of its softening of its former hard line position with regards to PR.
