HomePod won’t unseat Amazon in the smart speaker...

Apple’s launch of HomePod has intensified the competition in smart speaker market. According to TrendForce, Amazon Echo still tops the ranking of smart speaker products in 2018 with a market share in shipment of 50.8%, although down from 69.1% in 2017. 

The share of Google Home is projected at 21.6%, ranking the 2nd. The new Apple HomePod is expected to reach a share of 8.9%, while the numbers for Alibaba’s and Xiaomi's smart speakers will be 6.3% and 5.1% respectively, adds the research group.

TrendForce analyst Tom Tien points out that apart from first movers like Amazon and Google, the smart speaker market is expected to draw more attention after Apple joined the competition. Alibaba and Xiaomi have also introduced related products, driving the entire market to flourish.

Overall speaking, smart speaker is the interface for smart home devices. Although many companies have entered this market, Amazon...

Motherboard: Key iPhone source code gets posted...

Nope. Nope. Nope.

I hate headlines like this. Biggest leak in history? Come on.

Here’s where the reaction comes from:

Someone just posted what experts say is the source code for a core component of the iPhone’s operating system on GitHub, which could pave the way for hackers and security researchers to find vulnerabilities in iOS and make iPhone jailbreaks easier to achieve.

The GitHub code is labeled “iBoot,” which is the part of iOS that is responsible for ensuring a trusted boot of the operating system. In other words, it’s the program that loads iOS, the very first process that runs when you turn on your iPhone. It loads and verifies the kernel is properly signed by Apple and then executes it—it’s like the iPhone’s BIOS.

This is true. It’s also true that Apple filed a copyright takedown and GitHub removed the post. But that’s a side note. Important, but a side note.

Buried down in the Motherboard article is this nugget:

Apple, Apple TV, and their original content strategy

This post from Pavan Rajam is long, well researched, and insightful, well worth the read if you are interested in Apple and their pursuit of the TV market.

Just a bit from the report:

Content development and production are not things Apple has done before. Will these shows even be good? Based on Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu’s progress on this front, success is possible but not guaranteed.

And:

In the current market, content is used to differentiate services, not hardware. Amazon, for example, uses original content to drive Prime subscriptions. It could care less whether you watch it on a Fire TV or another device.

And:

If growing Services revenue is a high priority, will this original content be available on non-Apple platforms (like Apple Music on Android, or iTunes on Windows)?

Those are just a taste of a much bigger...

∞ Apple Watch is a huge success. I think HomePod...

Apple Watch shipments beat expectations, topping 18 million in 2017, up by more than 54% on 2016. The Series 3 was the key growth driver, as total shipments of the latest version of Apple’s Watch were just under 9 million, making up nearly half of all shipments in 2017. Apple’s Q4 performance was impressive in itself, as shipments grew by more than 32% over Q4 2016 to 8 million, the highest ever number of shipments in a single quarter, not just for Apple, but for any wearable vendor.

I recognize that these are vastly different products, but Apple’s success with Apple Watch after much skepticism from the market reminds me strongly of the imminent rollout of HomePod.

The early watchOS experience is quite different from what we’ve got today. Complications (the hot spots on the watch face that update with things like notifications, current weather, etc.) and Activities integration are but two major changes that rolled out over time and significantly changed Apple Watch’s...

Eddy Cue on not carrying a wallet and keys and Apple...

Eddy Cue took the stage for an Apple Music Q&A at Variety’s Pollstar conference:

Eddy Cue, Apple senior vice president of software and services, says the goal is for everyone to have nothing in their pockets.

Well, other than an iPhone, he said, laughing.

Demonstrating the seemingly small but life-changing tech Apple is known for, Cue explained how he goes to work without even carrying keys or a wallet. “Not having keys to anything is really nice,” Cue said. “It’s simple, but it’s a big deal.”

And:

“Anytime you want to purchase something, the number of clicks, the number of things you have to do, you see dropoff,” Cue said. “Depending on how many there are, there are always huge dropoffs. With Apple Pay, you see something you want, you basically do the face ID and you’re done. It’s very easy to complete the transactions.”

And:

“For us, one of weirdest things in the music industry is the lack of transparency,” Cue said. “One of...

Apple applies for yet another head-mounted AR...

Apple has applied for yet another patent for an augmented reality (AR) headset. Patent filing number 20180039052 is for an “optical system for head-mounted display.”

The invention involves a head-mounted display that includes a display system and an optical system. Head-mounted displays such as virtual reality glasses use lenses to display images for a user. A microdisplay may create images for each of a user's eyes. A lens may be placed between each of the user's eyes and a portion of the microdisplay so that the user may view virtual reality content. 

However, in the patent filing, Apple says that, if care is not taken, a head-mounted display may be cumbersome and tiring to wear. Optical systems for head-mounted displays may use arrangements of lenses that are bulky and heavy. Extended use of a head-mounted display with this type of optical system may be uncomfortable. Apple thinks it can come up with a better solution than current AR glasses.

This isn’t...

Review: Yohann, an expensive but undeniably...

Normally, I deal with price at the end of reviews, but there are times when you have to address it right at the beginning – and this is definitely one of those times.

One way of looking at the price of the Yohann iPad stand is that it’s a rather small piece of wood costing $130. A different way of looking at it would be to say that it costs almost exactly the same amount as Apple charges for another iPad accessory: the leather sleeve for the 10.5-inch iPad, which we reviewed last year.

Jeff struggled to justify the price of that – but did conclude that you probably wouldn’t be disappointed if you bought it. Can we say the same with this? Well, let’s start by looking at its USP …

Arrival times for new HomePod orders now Feb. 12 (or...

Hope you ordered your HomePod early, as shipping times for the wireless speaker have slipped a bit. The Apple online store shows that orders placed today should arrive by Feb. 12 at the earliest.

In the U.S.,, HomePod deliveries will kick off at around 8 a.m. local time on Friday, Feb. 9. MacRumors says that Apple is using Next Day Air delivery in the U.S. and shipping out from local hubs, which is why there’s no tracking information available yet. And which should explain why I can’t track my HomePod order, which was placed on Feb. 2.

The device is just under seven inches tall and looks like a piece of furniture. It will be available in both space gray and white, and also acts as a hub for HomeKit devices to provide remote access to home automation.

iPhone source codes gets posted online

Yikes! Source code for “iBoot,” one of the most critical iOS programs, was anonymously posted on GitHub, which could pave the way for hackers and security researchers to find vulnerabilities in iOS and make iPhone jailbreaks easier to achieve, according to Motherboard.

iBoot is the program that loads iOS, the very first process that runs when you turn on your iPhone or iPad. It loads and verifies the kernel is properly signed by Apple and then executes it.

Apple takes special care to keep iBoot secure and its code private; bugs in the boot process are the most valuable ones if reported to Apple through its bounty program, which values them at a max payment of $200,000.

Rumor: Apple to launch AirPower next month

According to an unnamed tipster at Best Buy, Apple is preparing to launch the AirPower wireless charging mat and new AirPods wireless charging case in March, claiming that Best Buy will stock AirPower from day one online and in-store., claims The Apple Post.

Announced at Apple's iPhone event in September 2017, the AirPower will be able to charge a Qi-compatible iPhone, an Apple Watch, and a pair of AirPods (in a special wireless charging case) at the same time regardless of where they're placed on the pad. AirPower hasn't been priced yet, but guesses have it costing anywhere from $150 - $200. 

Chances the rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 60%. I think we’re more likely looking at an April-May time frame. That said, I hope I’m wrong and that the AirPower does hit stores next month.

Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro is useful — when it works

Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro is a handy, inexpensive ($0.99) app for macOS (10.7 or higher) that can remove duplicate photos and videos from Photos or iPhoto (9.0 or later). When it works, that is.

To use it you'll have to have Photos or iPhoto running in the background. You'll also have to turn off Photo Stream and Photo Sharing (in the iPhone Preferences menu) if they're running. 

Once you've done this, launch and point it to your Photos or iPhoto library. It scans your library for duplicates. When it finds duplicates, it moves them to the trash. Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro can also clean the trash to recover disk space. 

However, it took a couple of attempts for me to get the utility to work. Twice it told me that Photos was "unresponsive" and couldn't scan the photo library. The third time was the charm and it ran and worked well.

How to send text messages with Siri on your iPhone...

Sure, you can send text messages on an iPhone or iPad using the virtual keyboard. However, it’s easier to do it using Siri, Apple’s “personal digital assistant.” Here’s how to do this:

  • Press and hold the Home button to activate Siri (or say “Hey, Siri” if you iPhone supports this feature).
  • Say something like “Text Laura Sellers” or “Send text to Laura Sellers.” Siri opens your Messages app and puts the name of the person you’re texting in the To field.
  • Siri will ask, “What do you want your message to say?” Dictate your text message.
  • When you’re done, Siri shows you the message and asks you if you want to send it.
  • Say “Yes” or “Send” to send the message. Or say “No” or “Cancel” to cancel the message.

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

Download aggregator web site MacUpdate briefly linked to three malicious applications masquerading as legitimate downloads for Firefox, OnyX, and Deeper, that not only install the apps, but also deposit Monero, a cryptocurrency miner on downloader’s systems.

On February 1st, MacUpdate updated its legitimate download links to installers for the three apps. Over the course of the incident, download links to OnyX and Deeper by Titanium Software were replaced with similar URLs and Firefox downloads were redirected to a bogus installed.

The payload was delivered as a .dmg file, but the installers were scripts that download and install the payload, plus retrieved a legitimate copy of the app in question to convince the user that the app installed properly.

Representatives from MacUpdate have since fixed the download links and offered the following instructions for removal of the malware as well as...

This would be the first time Apple has allowed retail store purchases to be made with a third-party mobile wallet app amid a push by the iPhone maker to revive growth in the world's No.2 economy. Apple has had to work hard to promote Apple Pay in China due to the popularity of existing, local mobile wallet apps like WeChat Pat and Alipay. The company had already bowed to the inevitable in allowing local apps to be used for online payments. Other American brands like McDonald's and Starbucks have already started accepting Alipay and WeChat Pay in China for sometimes.

As noted by Business Insider, you can stream Spotify, Amazon Prime, Tidal, etc., to an HomePod from an iPhone or iPad. Here’s how:

  • Make sure your iPhone's Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections are switched on, and both the iPhone and HomePod are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Swipe up from the home screen of your iPhone (or down from the top-right corner on the iPhone X).
  • Locate the tile containing music playback controls.
  • Tap the icon in the top-right corner of the music playback tile.
  • Tap on your HomePod.

Now, music...

An Apple Store proposed for Federation Square has been labelled a "Pizza Hut pagoda" as the Melbourne (Australia) City Council voted to pressure for a redesign.

At a meeting this week, the city council was told that the proposal has “overwhelmingly been rejected by the community,” with the council receiving about 800 submissions rejecting the design, reports ABC News. Councillors unanimously backed a motion by Greens Councillor Rohan Leppert to lobby the government for a new design for the store and public consultation. However, the council doesn’t have the power to actually block the development from going ahead, according to ABC News.

Goldman Sachs is reportedly in talks with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) to finance iPhone purchases. According to Seeking Alphabuyers would theoretically borrow from Goldman at a cheaper interest rate than the typical credit card might charge. The bank's Marcus platform on average charges 12%.

Consumers borrowed more than $200 billion last year in point-of-sale loans, according to one consulting firm, with about $80B going toward big-ticket items. Goldman would like a piece of that, and a partnership with Apple “would be quite the coup,” says Seeking Alpha.

Alipay, which is managed by Alibaba affiliate firm Ant Financial, counts over 500 million users. Ant Financial said in a statement on Wednesday.

As HomePod launches, Spotify cuts off support for...

Chris Welch, The Verge:

Spotify is removing itself from a number of home audio speakers and receivers from the likes of Onkyo, Denon, Marantz, Bang & Olufsen, Pioneer, and Yamaha. Some devices are losing Spotify integration completely, while others will require firmware updates if users want to continue receiving built-in access to their music. The products in question were once all able to independently play Spotify over the internet — no smartphone required.

And:

[Spotify] announced this change was coming months and months ago. But at that time, things were still working as normal for users who would ultimately be impacted by the move. Over the last few weeks, the cutoff has actually occurred, and Spotify is getting a slew of complaints in its support forums about the lost functionality.

Curious timing. Is this strategy shift by Spotify related to Friday’s HomePod release? I can’t quite connect the dots, but hard to believe this is unrelated to...

Apple’s emoji crackdown

Jeremy Burge, Emojipedia:

WhatsApp used Apple emojis on Android for years, and only recently created its own emoji set for use on Android and the web. Slack, too, offered Apple emojis on all platforms until today.

Whether these changes were due to pressure from Apple, or a growing realisation that this might not be the right way to go about cross-platform use, we don’t know for sure.

Other apps such as Signal and Telegram continue to use Apple emojis on Android.

That’s Android. How about using Apple emoji in your iOS app?

Last week app developer Sam Eckert reported that an update to his iOS app BitTracker was rejected by Apple due to lack of compliance with its guidelines for trademarks and copyrights.

Specifically, emoji use in BitTracker was called out as being problematic in both the iPhone app, and a small Chart Decreasing emoji used in the watchOS app was also an issue.

Up until this week, the most used version of Android was Marshmallow, which shipped in October of 2015. That has now changed.

As you can see in this official Android pie chart, Android Nougat (which shipped in August 2016) has just squeaked by, with an adoption rate of 28.5% (as opposed to Marshmallow’s 28.1%).

Here’s the current (as of January 18th) iOS adoption picture:

iOS 11, which shipped this past September, is used on 65% of devices. Fragmentation is still a big issue for Android. If nothing else, those old versions of Android carry the malware susceptibilities that, presumably, have been patched in the most recent version of Android, called Oreo.

The capper? Oreo was released one month before iOS 11 and has an adoption rate of about 1%.
