YouTube find: Deep water testing of iPhone 7 and...

YouTube channel EverythingApplePro has made a wildly popular video (over 1.5 million views) showing just how waterproof the newest iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S phone are. The results are incredible, with both phones surpassing their IPX7 (iPhone 7) and IPX8 ratings. The two phones are put into a hole-riddled paint can, then lowered into the Columbia River for 5 minutes at various depths.

If you don't want to watch it all the way through, the iPhone 7 did survive at 35 feet (10m) for 5 minutes, although it had a bit of water damage. The Galaxy S7 did not survive.

iPhone 7’s 25% brighter display only reaches max...

I’ve noticed a lot of people talking about how the new iPhone 7 display doesn’t appear to be brighter or even as bright as previous-gen iPhones despite Apple’s claim of a 25% brighter display versus iPhone 6s. That’s actually not the case, but there’s a reason it might appear that way…  more…

Worried that Apple's AirPods are too expensive and easy to lose? Then take a look at the new FRESHeBUDS Pro Magnetic Bluetooth Earbuds, available at 66% off the usual price -- just $39.95!

I've tried these 'buds and they sound amazing! The two earbuds have those "ear hooks" so they stay in place while running or doing yard work, and when you're not listening, they attach to each other magnetically around your neck. Pull 'em apart, and they automatically link up to your iPhone. What other features do they have?

∞ iPhone 7 vs Galaxy S7 in deep water test

[VIDEO] This is a pretty cool test. No spoilers, save to say that the phones were dropped several times, at successive depths, until the final drop to 35 feet. Suffice it to say, this is way more water exposure than most folks will subject their phones to, but good to know how they fare.

Apple may sell 100 million new iPhones by year’s end

Apple may sell up to 100 million iPhone 7s by the end of the year thanks to better-than-expected initial sales, likely a direct result of rival Samsung's recall of the Galaxy Note 7, according to a report from South Korean analysts.

Korean component vendors for Apple expected a volume of 80 million to 85 million units, but this has jumped by between 17-25% to over 100 million by the end of the year, said IBK Investment & Securities analyst Lee Seung-woo. "The order to stop using the Galaxy Note 7 and continuous incidents of them exploding in the US likely have leaned US consumers towards the iPhone," said Lee, in a note to clients — as noted by ZDNet. "It is indisputable that the Galaxy Note 7 incident has become a huge...

My iPhone 7 Plus is emitting noise from its logic...

Stephen Hackett, writing for 512 Pixels:

As my iPhone 7 Plus was restoring from iCloud, I thought I noticed some sound. After picking the device up from my desk, it was clear the sounds are coming from back of the phone, possibly from the CPU. It seems to get worse if the iPhone is under load. It’s loud enough to be heard even if the iPhone is just sitting on the table. I don’t have to put it up to my ear to hear it.

Follow the link if you want to hear the hissing for yourself.

I’ve heard from several other people with similar experiences, and others who are saying past iOS devices have displayed this issue. I’ve handled more devices than most, and haven’t come across this.

I’m not saying this is some widespread problem; I just wanted to share my experience with others who may be having it too.

I’ve never heard of this sort of thing before. The only self-moving part inside the iPhone is the taptic engine, and that wouldn’t make a hissing noise. Is...

10 cool little things to try in iOS 10

This is a nice little collection, definitely worth a read. My favorite is to tell Siri:

Show me pictures of my cats

Obviously, you’ll want to replace “my cats” with something that makes sense for you. This was a bit hit-or-miss for me, but I like the direction. Asking Siri to search for cats worked flawlessly for me. Other searches were way off or prompted Siri to turn to the web, which was not what I intended.

But this one also worked flawlessly:

Show me pictures of food

I had no idea I took so many pictures of stuff I like to eat. And now I’m hungry.

Comment: Can Apple persuade a long-time wired...

I’m personally still very happy with my ultra-pocketable iPhone SE so I have no plans to buy the iPhone 7, but with Apple touting a brave new wireless future, I thought the launch would make an opportune moment to decide whether or not it was time for me to make the switch from a wired world.

Those who know me are often surprised to find that I wasn’t one of the first to switch to wireless headphones. I have a well-known aversion to wires, even going so far as commissioning a bespoke desk to hide them away out of sight. But while I’ve tried a few wireless headphones over the years, I’ve always come back to my wired Bowers & Wilkins P5 …

New Apple Music Commercial Features James Corden…...

Apple aired a new Apple Music commercial during the Emmys featuring actor and late night talk show host James Corden pitching his ideas for an ad promoting the streaming music service. The spot is a big departure from Apple’s other ads because is also features Eddy Cue, Bozoma Saint John, and Jimmy Iovine—the Apple Music executive team. It’s a fun commercial, assuming you’re a James Cordon fan, although it was kind of disappointing that we didn’t get any mention of Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All. Apple is sharing the new ad on YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

NeXT-era Steve Jobs photos

This is a small collection of 8 NeXT-era photos, each with a detailed caption. I thought these were worth a look.

My favorite is this one, taken in Palo Alto in 1986.

Here’s that caption:

NeXT design director Eddie Lee said that Steve had a way of “smiling shit at you” when he was getting mad. His head would go down and he’d make this sort of uncomfortable half smile, and you knew you were about to get crushed. Decisions in early team meetings such as this one were fraught with tension because the team was writing its business plan as it went along. One pivotal decision made was to build both the hardware and the software for the NeXT computer, a vastly harder prospect than their original idea to build only software. While still shaping every detail...

Fantastical calendar app gains updated iOS 10-style...

Even if you love Apple’s built-in Calendar apps on iOS 10 and watchOS 3, Fantastical for iOS and watchOS is the best way to view a streamlined list view of both your upcoming appointments and scheduled reminders. I use both apps but Fantastical is my primary calendar (and you can sort of remove stock apps now).

Over the weekend, Fantastical for iOS was refreshed with a much-needed iOS 10 update that supports the new iOS 10 widget styles. Before iOS 10, widgets could be any size which made Fantastical’s month calendar widget very useful, but it didn’t fit iOS 10 without an update.

The iFixit iPhone 7 Plus teardown

A few things really struck me while making my way through this teardown of the iPhone 7 Plus.

The iPhone cover/display flips to the side, like opening a book. Good to know this if you ever plan to open yours.

The edge of the iPhone cover is rimmed with a caulk-like adhesive, which acts like a gasket to keep liquids out, aid waterproofing (water-resistancing?)

The iPhone is filled with lots of tri-point screws, similar to the ones used inside the Apple Watch.

Finally, I found this to be an incredibly good looking design, at least to my untrained eye. Good stuff.

Apple co-founder Steve “Woz” Wozniak will keynote Postgres Vision 2016, the international conference for technology and industry visionaries to explore the future of enterprise Postgres, open source, entrepreneurship, and innovation.  Postgres Vision will be held Oct. 11-13, 2016, at the iconic Innovation Hangar (iHangar) in the Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco.

Some iPhone 7 users report hissing sounds, no clear...

The iPhone 7 may, in fact, hiss at you.

A number of early iPhone 7 adopters have reported that both the regular iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus producing hissing sounds when they’re subjected to a heavy processor workload, such as a game. They continue to function, but it’s a bit disconcerting when most phones are virtually silent.

It’s currently unknown as to what’s causing the hissing sound and suspected causes include coil whine or similar electromagnetic effects.

The issue doesn’t seem to be appearing for everyone and a number of users have put their iPhone 7 under considerable workloads with no hissing whatsoever, thereby giving rise to the idea that the hissing may be due to a manufacturing issue instead of an inherent design quirk.

Based on reports that the iPhone 7 would be a ‘dull’ upgrade, the company decided to take advantage by bringing forward its own launch.

The top brass at Samsung Electronics, including phone chief D.J.

They pushed suppliers to meet tighter deadlines, despite loads of new features...

Robot cars will make up most of Lyft’s rides in five...

Autonomous self-driving cars are set to take off but they are less likely to be driven by private owners and will in all probability be part of networks operated by ride-hailing services, according to Lyft’s view of the future of transportation.

The ride-hailing company expects that Lyft rides in the robot cars will outstrip those in cars driven by human drivers within the next five years in the U.S, according to John Zimmer, its co-founder and president.

Ride-hailing companies, car makers and tech firms are eyeing autonomous cars as the next big opportunity. Uber Technologies tested its ride-hailing autonomous cars on the streets of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania recently, with a driver ready to step in during an emergency. Lyft says it is testing an on-demand network of autonomous vehicles in Phoenix and San Francisco in partnership with General Motors, which in January also invested US$500 million in Lyft.

For some, it’s a matter of cost, but for others, the classic Mac OS actually maintains technical advantages. In particular, some audio professionals prefer Mac OS 9 for its low latency, high speed, and bevy of free production software.

Benchmark scores have already shown us that the iPhone 7 is theoretically faster than a standard MacBook Air, but they always raise the question how much difference such performance makes to real-life use.

Apple Releases Swift 3.0, 'Not Source-...

An anonymous Slashdot reader quotes InfoWorld:

"Move fast and break things," the saying goes. Apple does both with the 3.0 version of its Swift programming language...its first full point revision since it became an open source project... In a blog post detailing the full body of changes for Swift 3.0, Apple singled out the two biggest breaking changes. The first is better translation of Objective-C APIs into Swift, meaning that code imported from Objective-C and translated into Swift will be more readable and Swift-like. The bad news is any code previously imported from Objective-C into Swift will not work in Swift 3; it will need to be re-imported.

The other major change... Most every item referenced in the standard library has been renamed to be less wordy. But again, this brings bad news for anyone with an existing Swift codebase: Apple says "the proposed changes are massively source-breaking for Swift code, and will require a migrator to translate Swift 2 code...

America is changing the way it teaches computer science. "There are now 31 states that allow CS to count towards high school graduation," according to an announcement this week by the White House, while a new Advance Placement course "will be offered in more than 2,000 U.S. classrooms this fall...the largest course launch in the history of the AP exam."
But what's the best way to teach coding? theodp reports: Tech-backed, one of the leaders of the new CSforAll Consortium that was announced at the White House on Wednesday, took to its blog Thursday to say "Thanks, Tim [Cook], for supporting the effort to give every student the opportunity to learn computer science," giving a shout out to Apple for providing "resources for teachers who want to put Swift Playgrounds in their classrooms. (A day earlier, the White House said Apple developed Swift Playgrounds "in support of the President's call to action" for CS for All).

Curiously, CEO Hadi Partovi argued...

Apple's solid-state iPhone 7 haptic Home button...

Apple's new iPhone 7 models introduce a new solid-state (non-mechanical) Home button which no longer physically depresses but instead is a software-driven sensor. That necessitates a new physical button sequence to hard-reset the device if it stops responding; that happens to be holding the Volume Down and Wake buttons for five seconds.

Nevertheless, it’s still interesting to note the various annoyances.

New Apple Products Have the Right Gaming Stuff

Apple is making a bid to attract gaming fans to the more powerful graphics and processing power embedded in its new iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 products.

Now, Recode has sat down with Apple’s head of human resources Denise Young Smith to discuss the issues raised in the article and what Apple is doing to combat them.

How The FBI Might've Opened the San Bernardino...

"Remember the San Bernardino killer's iPhone, and how the FBI maintained that they couldn't get the encryption key without Apple providing them with a universal backdoor?" Slashdot reader LichtSpektren quotes Bruce Schneier:

Many of us computer-security experts said that they were wrong, and there were several possible techniques they could use. One of them was manually removing the flash chip from the phone, extracting the memory, and then running a brute-force attack without worrying about the phone deleting the key. The FBI said it was impossible. We all said they were wrong. Now, Sergei Skorobogatov has proved them wrong.

Sergei's new paper describes "a real world mirroring attack on the Apple iPhone 5c passcode retry counter under iOS 9."

The process does not require any expensive and sophisticated equipment. All needed parts are low cost and were obtained from local electronics distributors. By using the described and successful hardware mirroring...

A leading technology company announces the next in its successful and long-standing line of handheld hardware. The new update sports plenty of long-awaited features, including an improved screen and a better battery. But it also includes one major omission: the standard 3.5mm headphone jack, which had been included on all of its portable products until this point, has been replaced by a proprietary standard. Many in the press are livid, and consumers largely react with confusion, but many shrug it off and decide to buy the product anyway.

This introduction could obviously describe the current brouhaha surrounding...

booq introduces the Pack Pro backpack

The team at booq ( has released a new backpack built for designers on the go: the $295 Pack Pro

“Because the original Cobra pack was a favorite among Booq fans, we wanted to evolve the design to include several key upgrades such as a larger, industrial plastic coil zipper, interior mesh pockets for added storage options, simplified straps for easy carrying and a redesigned front panel to better hold the pack’s shape and give a boxier, rigid look,” says Kema Subsomboon, lead product designer at booq. “The result is a more refined Pack Pro that gives Booq fans, who often travel for business, a comfortable solution for carrying their gear while maintaining the features they loved from the original Cobra pack.”

iPhone 7 bests iPhone 6s in durability drop test,...

Apple appears to have improved the durability of the iPhone 7 compared to the iPhone 6s, as highlighted by a new drop test video by EverythingApplePro. The iPhone 7 does very well in this specific test, sustaining ten foot face-down and side drops without cracking the screen. In contrast, the iPhone 6s was completely shattered at drops of five-feet. The iPhone 7’s rear sapphire cover glass (the camera bump) was damaged but the person could still take photos.

Apple makes no claims about drop or shatter performance of course; the waterproofness of the iPhone 7 has already been shown to be of a high-standard.

ExoLens has announced four new products for the iPhone 7/7 Plus. The $199.99 ExoLens Pro Wide-Angle Kit (pictured) with Optics by ZEISS is a pro-level, mobile accessory lens for photographers, artists, and journalists.

Schoolyard games: Turning Apple into a bully

Congratulations to Quartz’s Dave Gershgorn, who found a way to criticize Apple that works in every situation.

“Apple is punching down” (Tip o’ the antlers to Philip Speicher.)

If your eyes happen to roll up as you read that title — and, really, why wouldn’t they? — you will see the text above the title:

Big Bully

Inasmuch as Apple is the largest tech company in the world depending on the day and what measure you use, yes, it’s almost always competing against a company that’s smaller than it is. So, all the golf claps to you, you’ve created Apple’s Kobayashi Maru. The only way for them to win is to loose a lot of money and market value.
