Qualcomm sues four of Apple's iPhone suppliers

Another day, another lawsuit. Qualcomm has filed a complaint against Foxconn Technology, Pegatron, Wistron, and Compal — all Apple contract manufacturers for making iPhones— for not paying royalties, reports Reuters.

"While not disputing their contractual obligations to pay for the use of Qualcomm's inventions, the manufacturers say they must follow Apple's instructions not to pay," Qualcomm said in a statement.

Per Reuters, Apple has agreed to indemnify the manufacturers for any damages resulting from breaching their agreements with Qualcomm, the chipmaker said in the complaint filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California.

Apple starts domestic production of the iPhone SE in...

The Wall Street Journal says Apple has confirmed that its manufacturing partners in India have started domestic production of the iPhone SE. Previously, Apple produced most of its smartphones iPhones in China with a few older models assembled in Brazil.

The Cupertino, California-based company has tapped Taiwan's Wistron Corp. to put together the smartphones in the tech capital of Bangalore in Karnataka, said Priyank Kharge, the state's IT minister.

“Apple’s iPhones will be made in Bangalore and all devices will be targeted at the domestic market,” said Kharge, IT minister for Karnataka, of which Bangalore is the capital. Kharge said the state will help Apple if it decides to turn to other contract manufacturers in the region. “We did not discuss any other incentives,” he said.

Getting a foothold in India has been a challenge for Apple. The...

Apple plans laptop upgrades to take on Microsoft

Mark Gurman and Alex Webb, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. plans to announce an update to its laptop lineup at an annual conference for app developers in early June, a move that could help offset new competition from Microsoft Corp. as well as declining iPad sales.

Apple is planning three new laptops, according to people familiar with the matter. The MacBook Pro will get a faster Kaby Lake processor from Intel Corp., said the people, who requested anonymity to discuss internal planning. Apple is also working on a new version of the 12-inch MacBook with a faster Intel chip. The company has also considered updating the aging 13-inch MacBook Air with a new processor as sales of the laptop, Apple’s cheapest, remain surprisingly strong, one of the people said.

Not sure why Microsoft is so heavily featured in this article. This makes it sound like Apple is reacting to a threat, as opposed to simply taking advantage of new processors to update the Mac line, spur sales.

Apple assembles first iPhones in India


An Apple Inc. manufacturer has completed a trial run of the first-ever iPhones assembled in India, in an important step in the U.S. tech giant’s push into the fast-growing South Asian market.

The manufacturing of Apple’s cheapest iPhone model, the SE, was handled earlier this month by Taiwanese contract manufacturer Wistron Corp., which has an assembling unit in the southern state of Karnataka, a state official with direct knowledge of the matter told The Wall Street Journal.

Apple said in a statement that it has begun initial production of a small number of iPhone SE handsets in Bangalore and will begin shipping the Indian-made devices to domestic customers this month. The first devices could hit stores as early as this week or next, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The first step in an important journey for Apple in its quest to grow India market share.

∞ How Google took over the classroom

From this The New York Times article:

In the space of just five years, Google has helped upend the sales methods companies use to place their products in classrooms. It has enlisted teachers and administrators to promote Google’s products to other schools. It has directly reached out to educators to test its products — effectively bypassing senior district officials. And it has outmaneuvered Apple and Microsoft with a powerful combination of low-cost laptops, called Chromebooks, and free classroom apps.

And, most importantly:

Today, more than half the nation’s primary- and secondary-school students — more than 30 million children — use Google education apps like Gmail and Docs, the company said. And Chromebooks, Google-powered laptops that initially struggled to find...

Today at your local Apple Store

Take a few minutes to check out the offerings at your local Apple Store via Apple’s new Today at Apple page. Pick your favorite location, tap confirm, then start scrolling.

Some stores (such as New York’s SoHo Apple Store and San Francisco’s Union Square location) feature concerts and other performances. Most stores have a constant running string of classes, focusing on things like iPhone photography, making music with GarageBand, learning the ins and outs of Apple Music, video editing on your Mac, and lots more.

Good use of space, great for customers. Questions for me: Will the gatherings be compelling enough to draw people in and will Apple find a way to spread the word to draw crowds and keep them coming back.

Rumor: Apple to announce refreshed notebooks at WWDC

It’s a rumor, but it could be pretty nifty if it’s true.

Apple is thought to be planning refreshes of its notebook lineup at its upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference set to take place in June. New versions of the MacBook and MacBook Pro are expected to be announced, and Apple is also considering updating the MacBook Air, its most affordable notebook.

The MacBook Pro, which was updated back in October with the inclusion of a slimmer design and a Touch Bar, will be upgraded with a faster Kaby Lake processor, an improvement from the Skylake processors in the current machines. The upgraded MacBook Pro will look the same as the current model, adopting only internal updates.

Apple’s MacBook, last updated in April of 2016, will gain an updated processor, also likely to be in the Kaby Lake family.

Apple has not updated its MacBook Air notebook since March of 2015, which the company seems to be phasing out in favor of the MacBook and MacBook Pro model...

Apple granted patent for ‘avatars reflecting user...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,652,134) for “avatars reflecting user states.” An avatar is an icon or figure representing a particular person in video games, Internet forums, etc. The patent could mean more responsive, interactive avatars in apps such as Messages and Mail.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that avatars are increasingly used in online social networking, gaming, and other communications, typically as a surrogate for an actual photograph of the user. They offer a measure of privacy, while allowing the users to have control over their online identities. 

As a means for self-expression, many users customize their own avatars to show physical characteristics that reflect the actual appearances of the users. The users can also dress up their avatars with accessories and clothing items that reflect the users' individual styles and fashion tastes. 

When a user interacts with others in various communication contexts (e.g., in online chat...

In a statement to the Wall Street Journal, Apple has confirmed that its manufacturing partners in India have started domestic production of iPhone SE. Up to now, Apple produces almost all of its iPhones in China (although some older models have been assembled in Brazil). Presumably, the devices will bear an ‘Assembled in India’ label on the hardware. Apple is pushing hard into India as it looks for new markets to grow iPhone sales.

The report says that the iPhone SE devices are being made in Bangalore and will ship to customers later in May, with the first domestically-produced phones appearing on store shelves next week. Pricing is unknown …

Mac Backup Guru simplifies the back-up process

By Aaron Lee

MacDaddy’s Mac Backup Guru may encourage you to back-up your data more frequently — and if you’re not already backing up, start doing so immediately. 

The useful utility is designed to, as you might guess from the name, back up files and disks. With a single Start button, you can sync the contents of any source with its backup destination using the app. Disk backups of startup drives are bootable with the Mac Backup Guru. If there's any inconsistency in the size or modification date between any files, the Source file replaces the outdated destination file. Following the initial cloning, syncs take minutes instead of hours.

Disk backup via cloning requires that the entire contents of the source overwrite the entire contents of the destination drive. Disk backup via sync requires that only the changes since that last backup overwrite the appropriate part of the destination drive. Backup via sync requires that the initial backup be...

How to move events between calendars in macOS Sierra

You can have multiple calendars in the Calendar app in macOS Sierra. When you move an event to a different calendar, the event’s color changes to match the new calendar.

To move events, do any of the following:

  • Double-click the event, then choose a calendar from the colored square pop-up menu in the top-right corner.

  • To copy an event, select the event, then choose Edit > Copy. Select the calendar where you want the event, then choose Edit > Paste.

Apple Receives Patents For Bezel-Free Display, Touch...

Apple has just been granted patents for two of the biggest features expected from the iPhone 8: an edge-to-edge display, and a Touch ID button embedded into the screen. 9to5Mac reports: The edge-to-edge display patent has the rather mundane heading "Reducing the border area of a device." It describes how a mostly-flat display can have a curved border area allowing it to wrap around the sides of the device: [...] "This relates to methods and systems for reducing the border areas of an electronic device so as to maximize the display/interactive touch areas of the device. In particular, a flexible substrate can be used to fabricate the display panel and/or the touch sensor panel (referred to collectively herein as a 'circuit panel') of a mobile electronic device so that the edges of the display panel and/or the touch sensor panel can be bent. Bending the edges can reduce the width (or length) of the panel, which in turn can allow the overall device to be narrower without reducing the...

How to avoid the WannaCrypt virus if you run Windows...

WannaCrypt may be exclusively a problem for Windows users, but the worm/virus combination could hit a Mac user with a Boot Camp partition or Windows virtual machines in VMware Fusion, Parallels, or other software. If you fit that bill and haven’t booted your Windows system since mid-March or you didn’t receive or install Microsoft’s vital security update (MS17-010) released at that time, read on.

It’s critical that you don’t start up a Windows XP or later installation that’s unpatched and let it connect to the Internet unless you’re absolutely sure you have the SMB file-sharing service disabled or firewall or network-monitoring software installed that will block any attempt from an outside connection.

Yesterday afternoon, the S&P 500 closed at a record high, and is up over $1.5 trillion since the start of 2017. "And the companies doing the most to drive that rally are all tech firms," reports The Verge. "Apple, Alphabet, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft make up a whopping 37 percent of the total gains." From the report: All of these companies saw their share prices touch record highs in recent months. This is in stark contrast to the rest of the U.S. economy, which grew at a rate of less than 1 percent during the first three months of this year. That divide is the culmination of a long-term trend, according to a recent report featured in The Wall Street Journal: "In digital industries -- technology, communications, media, software, finance and professional services -- productivity grew 2.7% annually over the past 15 years...The slowdown is concentrated in physical industries -- health care, transportation, education, manufacturing, retail -- where productivity grew a mere 0.7...

Tim Cook Charity Auction Raises Record $688K

Report: Apple to release new laptops at WWDC 2017

Faced with pressure from Microsoft and declining iPad sales, Apple will announce updates to its MacBook laptops at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, according to a report by Bloomberg.

Citing "people familiar with the matter," Apple will reveal three new laptops. A new MacBook Pro will sport Intel's Kaby Lake processor, an upgrade over the current Skylake-based models. Bloomberg says that the MacBook will also get a faster CPU, but doesn't specify what Intel part will be used. And perhaps to the surprise of Mac users, Apple may introduce a 13-inch MacBook Air with a faster processor. Bloomberg states that sales of the MacBook Air remain strong, despite the fact that Apple killed the 11-inch MacBook Air last October...

Sorry, but I still think the MacBook Air is a goner

Bloomberg is reporting that Apple plans to unveil three new laptops for unveiling at next month’s Worldwide Developer Conference: updated MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs and 12-inch MacBooks. The Sellers Research Firm (that's me) disagrees with that prediction.

I do think we’ll see new 12-inch MacBooks introduced (along with new iPad Pros (hmmm, how will Apple differentiate the laptop and the “laptop replacement”?). 

And I think Apple will preview new MacBook Pros along with new iMacs. However, I don't think either of those systems will go on sale until September or October, when macOS 11 is released. 

However, I still think, as I've said before, that the MacBook Air is a goner. I don't see a place in the line-up for both it and the plainly named MacBook. To me, having all three Mac laptops only confuses things. 

Bloomberg says...

Apple To Refresh Entire MacBook Lineup Next Month,...

Apple will unveil new laptops during its annual developer conference, known as WWDC, next month, reports Bloomberg. The company is going to refresh the MacBook Pro (as well as Air and just the 'MacBook' models) with new seventh-gen processors from Intel, the newest available, the report adds. Last year, Apple launched three new MacBook Pro laptops with older sixth-generation chips, which means people who already own the newer model may be a bit dismayed by Apple's refresh. From the article: Apple is planning three new laptops, according to people familiar with the matter. The MacBook Pro will get a faster Kaby Lake processor from Intel, said the people, who requested anonymity to discuss internal planning. Apple is also working on a new version of the 12-inch MacBook with a faster Intel chip. The company has also considered updating the aging 13-inch MacBook Air with a new processor as sales of the laptop, Apple's cheapest, remain surprisingly strong, one of the people said.

Bloomberg reporting WWDC 2017 MacBook updates

New MacBooks On The Way?

We'll know in just 20 days...

We may be seeing more than just updates to the iPad Pro line and a new Siri Speaker at this year's WWDC in San Jose, California. Bloomberg is reporting that "people familiar with the matter" say "Apple is planning three new laptops".

The MacBook Pro will get a faster Kaby Lake processor from Intel Corp., said the people, who requested anonymity to discuss internal planning. Apple is also working on a new version of the 12-inch MacBook with a faster Intel chip. The company has also considered updating the aging 13-inch MacBook Air with a new processor as sales of the laptop, Apple's cheapest, remain surprisingly strong, one of the people said.

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has predicted MacBook Pro Kaby Lake upgrades this year with a new 32GB RAM options, and Apple's own admission that the 16GB MacBook Pro was not seen as a true "Pro" machine could have forced a fast redesign of the platform.

US Law Allows Low H-1B Wages; Just Look At Apple

An anonymous reader writes: If you work at Apple's One Infinite Loop headquarters in Cupertino as a computer programmer on an H-1B visa, you can can be paid as little as $52,229. That's peanuts in Silicon Valley. Average wages for a programmer in Santa Clara County are more than $93,000 a year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, the U.S. government will approve visa applications for Silicon Valley programmers at $52,229 -- and, in fact, did so for hundreds of potential visa holders at Apple alone. To be clear, this doesn't mean there are hundreds of programmers at Apple working for that paltry sum. Apple submitted a form to the U.S. saying it was planning on hiring 150 computer programmers beginning June 14 at this wage. But it's not doing that. Instead, this is a paperwork exercise by immigration attorneys to give an employer -- in this case, Apple -- maximum latitude with the H-1B laws. The forms-submittal process doesn't always reflect actual hiring goals...

External Link: WannaCry Ransomware Vindicates Apple’...

Last year, Apple CEO Tim Cook came under fire from the FBI for not providing a custom, vulnerable version of iOS so the agency could hack into the iPhone 5c used by one of the San Bernardino mass shooters. Cook refused, on the grounds that it would be impossible to keep any such back door out of the hands of criminals and other intelligence agencies. His stance has now been vindicated, as stolen NSA exploits released by the Shadow Brokers hacking group were used to spread the WannaCry ransomware throughout the world. WannaCry dominated headlines briefly by infecting more than 230,000 Windows-based computers in 150 countries in 24 hours, affecting major companies and even Britain's National Health Service.
