Apple updates Support app with redesigned UI, new...

Jeff Benjamin, 9to5Mac:

On the heels of launching a YouTube channel dedicated to how-to tutorial videos, Apple today pushed a significant version 2.0 update to its Apple Support app for iOS.

The app, which initially launched last November, received a major update back in the spring that allowed users to schedule repairs at participating Apple Authorized Service Providers, and provided broader access to Genius Bar reservations.

Today’s update adds a redesigned user interface, along with a new Discover tab dedicated to learning about your Apple products. In addition, the app also features the ability to search the company’s library of support articles, which can prove useful for finding solutions to specific issues.

Here’s a link to Apple’s official Support app.

I’m a big fan of Susan Kare’s work. All it takes is a quick scan of her Wikipedia page or this sample page of some of her Apple icons and you can see the impact she had on the original Mac, an impact that carries on to this day.

Susan is still very active as an artist and designer and has a collection of table linens just perfect for the old-school Mac lover in your life. This is definitely my cup of tea. Take a look.

Questionable rumor claims Apple 'considering...




Apple is allegedly considering a new, even cheaper "budget" iPad in 2018, priced around $259 while still retaining a 9.7-inch screen like the current $329 model, but there are reasons to believe it will simply be a price cut rather than new hardware.

Elon Musk wins bet, turns on Australian mega-battery...

BBC:

The 100-megawatt battery, built by Tesla, was officially activated on Friday. It had in fact provided some power since Thursday due to demand caused by local hot weather.

South Australia has been crippled by electricity problems in recent times.

As I understand it, the region is a leader in wind-power, but suffers blackouts when wind levels fall too far.

Elon Musk stepped in, said he’d have a 100 Megawatt backup battery built, delivered, installed and working within 100 days or he wouldn’t charge them a penny.

Great story.

Rumor: Apple planning an inexpensive iPad for 2018

According to DigiTimes Research, Apple is planning a 9.7-inch iPad for next year that will cost about $259. 

Quoting unnamed “sources from related upstream suppliers,” the research group says that the tablet will be designed to “attract more demand from price-oriented consumers, allowing Apple to maintain its present 10 million-unit tablet shipments a quarter.”

Chances the rumor is true, per the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 50%. The current (non-Pro) iPad starts at $329; I can’t see Apple lowering the price below $299.

Alexa, HomePod, and the Apple Watch

From this very thoughtful post by Neil Cybart:

When introduced at WWDC 2017, HomePod was marketed as an iOS accessory that will serve as the best speaker people have ever owned. The $349 price certainly reflects this accessory mindset. While Apple briefly went over how HomePod will be able to serve as a type of smart home hub, it was almost more of an afterthought. At its core, Apple does not think the only function for stationary smart speakers is to pipe digital voice assistants.

And:

I don’t think stationary smart speakers represent the future of computing. Instead, companies are using smart speakers to take advantage of an awkward phase of technology in which there doesn’t seem to be any clear direction as to where things are headed. Consumers are buying cheap smart speakers powered by digital voice assistants without having any strong...

macOS market share up, iOS down in November

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for both macOS and iOS dipped (slightly)  last month. 

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 7.29% of the global market share in November, up from from 6.25% percent in October (that’s global market share; in the U.S. it’s over 13%). April 2016’s 9.2% was an all-time high, according to NetMarketShare’s measurements. Windows remains dominant with 89.01%.

iOS had 28.88% in November, down from 31.46% in October. This compares to 66.74% for Android, 0.73% for Windows Phone, and 0.37% for Java ME. The all-time high for iOS was in July 2012 with 65.94%.

NetMarketShares’ monthly surveys don’t measure market share in terms of computer systems sold. Instead they sample data from visitors to some 40,000 web sites operated by their clients. And note that NetMarketShare’s numbers don’t equate to sales.

Mikey Campbell, AppleInsider:

After a rocky start marked by a quick initial sellout and lingering supply issues, Apple is quickly catching up with iPhone X demand, with current U.S. delivery estimates pegging ship times at six business days.

I just checked and delivery now shows as December 11 (ten days from now). That’s still pretty good, and in plenty of time for gift-giving, if that’s your goal.

Even better, most models are showing available for pickup today. If you live near an Apple Store and an iPhone X is in your near future, check pickup availability for the model you crave. 64GB models are available today at most stores I checked, 256GB available at some, but far fewer.

Second Apple patent involves an AirPods wireless...

Apple has been granted a second patent (number 20170347182) for the upcoming AirPod case that will work with its AirPod charging system, due in early 2018.

It's rumored that Apple will sell the new AirPod case separately for $69 by the end of 2017. The AirPower is an Apple-designed wireless charging accessory coming in 2018, which offers a generous active charging area that will allow iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X customers to simultaneously charge up to three devices, including Apple Watch Series 3 and the new (optional) wireless charging case for AirPods. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but it’s expected to cost about $200.

The patent involves a case for a portable listening device (AirPods) that includes a rechargeable battery and a first and a second charging system. The first charging system is configured to charge the portable listening device and the second charging system is configured to wirelessly charge a portable electronic device positioned outside...

Why a web browser is the wrong place to save your...

By Jeff Graber

For the average Internet user, security of passwords is often a secondary consideration, right after convenience. Most of us belong to so many different websites requiring passwords that we could never name them all, even if a gun were placed to our heads. 

Clicking that little “yes” button when our web browsers automatically ask us if we want to save our password is almost an automatic reflex reaction for some of us. But this practice is actually the worst possible method for keeping your passwords safe. Using a password management system provides infinitely more protection.

Who else has access to your computer?

 All that it takes to gain access to all of your passwords is a few seconds in front of your desktop or laptop computer. If you’re in the office and walk away for a quick meeting with the boss, a colleague in the next cubicle can simply slip into our seat and access all of your secret information...

FDA approves first EKG reader for Apple Watch

The FDA has just cleared the first medical device accessory for the Apple Watch. AliveCor’s KardiaBand electrocardiogram (EKG) reader functions as a sensor that pairs with an app and can detect abnormal heart rhythm and atrial fibrillation (AFib). The user touches the sensor, which snaps into a slot on the watch’s band, to get an EKG reading in 30 seconds. The recording can then be sent to a doctor.

The KardiaBand can then predict and analyze the user’s heart rate based on data from both sick and healthy users.

AliveCor’s CEO Vic Gundotra, formerly of Google, offered the following comments:

“Apple might be able to say ‘oh your heart rate is high’ …but what does that mean? Does that mean you should go to the hospital? And if you go to the hospital what are they going to do? Any doctor will say ‘ok come in, lets get an EKG reading. It’s not possible to diagnose atrial fibrillation without FDA clearance. That is a big, big play.”

Apple has an...

Comcast could be readying paid priority lanes should...

After years of promising that it won’t violate the principles of net neutrality, Comcast appears to be gearing up for an instance in which net neutrality laws could be revoked. The company’s stance has changed and while Comcast has stated that it has dropped its promise about not instituting paid prioritization.

The new policy now states that Comcast won’t “discriminate against lawful content” or impose “anti-competitive paid prioritization.” The change in wording suggests that Comcast may offer paid fast lanes to websites or other online services, such as video streaming providers, after the Federal Communications Commission eliminates the net neutrality rules next month.

Should net neutrality rules be eliminated, Comcast would have to decide whether any prioritization deal is anti-competitive before implementing it. FCC chairman Ajit Pac has argued that the Federal Trade Commission and other antitrust bodies would handle regulation in this area. Still, as such,...

High Sierra Root Login Bug Was Mentioned on Apple...

John Gruber, reporting for DaringFireball: It's natural to speculate how a bug as egregious as the now-fixed High Sierra root login bug could escape notice for so long. It seems to have been there ever since High Sierra 10.3.0 shipped on September 25, and may have existed in the betas through the summer. One explanation is that logging in with the username "root" and a blank password is so bizarre that it's the sort of thing no one would think to try. More insidious though, is the notion that it might not have escaped notice prior to its widespread publicization yesterday -- but that the people who had heretofore discovered it kept it to themselves. This exploit was in fact posted to Apple's own support forums on November 13. It's a bizarre thread. The thread started back on June 8 when a user ran into a problem after installing the WWDC developer beta of High Sierra.

Review: Etymotic mk5 Isolator In-Ear Headphones

We often talk about the importance of isolation with IEMs. Usually, we talk about how we experiment with ear tips and fiddle with positioning of our IEMs to get a "good seal," and how it's important to hear the full frequency response range of a headphone and block outside noise. But there's more to it than that — good isolation allows you to listen to music at lower volumes and protect your hearing. Etymotic is one of very few companies that is as focused on protecting hearing as it is on making quality earphones. Today we're trying one of their entry level models — the Mk5 Isolator IEMs. Not only do they live up to their name, they also sound way better than they should for under $65.{/exp:char_limit}

Apple has released it’s own Heart Study app for the iPhone and Apple Watch as part of a ResearchKit study to collect data on irregular heart rhythms and potentially serious heart conditions such as atrial fibrillation. The app forms part of a new study being done in collaboration with Stanford Medicine, and while it’s not the first heart study to be done using Apple’s technology — a similar study was conducted earlier this year…

Can't wait for AirPower? The Funxim Charging...

Many of us who own both newer iPhones and Apple Watches were thrilled to see Apple's reveal of the AirPower charging mat, but disappointed to see that we'd have to wait until 2018 to actually get one of the cool devices. Now there's a Kickstarter campaign for a charging pad that provides much of the functionality of the AirPower at a fraction of the cost. The Funxim Charging Pad ($29, campaign has reached its funding goal) can charge both an iPhone 8/8 Plus/X and an Apple Watch at the same time just by laying the devices on the pad.

The design is actually quite simple, but it does have some limitations. The Funxim Charging Pad is actually a Qi-compatible iPhone charger with an Apple Watch charging puck embedded in it. In other words, you can place the iPhone pretty much anywhere on the pad, but you have to place the Apple Watch...

The Periodic Table of elements, in pictures and words

Keith Enevoldsen:

This pictorial periodic table is colorful, fun, and packed with information. In addition to the element’s name, symbol, and atomic number, each element box has a drawing of one of the element’s main human uses or natural occurrences. The table is color-coded to show the chemical groupings. Small symbols pack in additional information: solid/liquid/gas, color of element, common in the human body, common in the earth’s crust, magnetic metals, noble metals, radioactive, and rare or never found in nature.

This is really cool. I used to know all of the elements (had to learn/memorize them in school) but we were never taught what some of them do, why they are important or how we use them. This illustration helps a

Apple teams up with Stanford Medicine for a study to...

Apple has launched the Apple Heart Study app, which is designed to facilitate research study using Apple Watch’s heart rate sensor to collect data on irregular heart rhythms and notify users who may be experiencing atrial fibrillation (AFib).

AFib, the leading cause of stroke, is responsible for approximately 130,000 deaths and 750,000 hospitalizations in the US every year. Many people don’t experience symptoms, so AFib often goes undiagnosed.

To calculate heart rate and rhythm, Apple Watch’s sensor uses green LED lights flashing hundreds of times per second and light-sensitive photodiodes to detect the amount of blood flowing through the wrist. The sensor’s unique optical design gathers signals from four distinct points on the wrist, and when combined with powerful software algorithms, Apple Watch isolates heart rhythms from other noise. The Apple Heart Study app uses...

AliveCor, which specializes in FDA-cleared personal electrocardiogram (EKG) technology, has announced FDA clearance of its $199 KardiaBand in the U.S.

It allows Apple Watch users to capture their EKG anytime, anywhere in order to quickly detect normal sinus heart rhythms and atrial fibrillation (AFib), the most common heart arrhythmia. The first FDA-cleared medical device accessory for Apple’s smartwatch, KardiaBand can record an EKG in 30 seconds with just a touch of its integrated sensor, according to AliveCor CEO Vic Gundotra. Results from the Kardia App are displayed on the face of Apple Watch.

AliveCor is also introducing SmartRhythm, a new feature within the Kardia app for the Apple Watch. It uses artificial intelligence in concert with inputs from Apple Watch's heart rate and activity sensors to continuously evaluate the correlation between heart activity and physical activity.

Each quarter, mobile experts compare the features and performance of iOS and Android smartphones. In the third quarter of 2017, Apple's iPhones came out victorious in the battle, with the Android device failure rate (30%) being nearly double that of the iOS device failure rate (16%), according to the Q3 2017 State of Mobile Device Performance and Health report released by Blancco Technology.

Both Android and iOS devices have seen their failure rates increase quarter-over-quarter. In quarter two (Q2) of 2017, for example, the failure rate for iOS devices worldwide was 12%. This has since increased to 16% in Q3 2017, according to Blancco, , which specializes in data erasure and mobile device diagnostics.. Android devices have experienced a similar struggle, with the failure rate worldwide jumping from 25% in Q2 2017 to 30% in Q3 2017. Key...

Comment: Inexcusable root security bug highlights...

In the entire history of operating system bugs, I don’t think there have been many bigger than the one reported this week. Allowing anyone with physical access to a Mac to login to it without a password is inexcusable; letting them in as root, so they have complete control of the machine and all accounts on it, is simply mind-boggling in its incompetence. Especially when the bug turns out to have been known for at least a couple of weeks.

We can at least take comfort in the fact that this bug wasn’t there for long, at least in the official release. But there have been smaller bugs and glitches that have literally lasted for years without being fixed.

While many find that a tablet or a laptop (or, for some, even a phone) is all they need, there are others who want to compute the old fashioned way - on a desktop. David Milman, president of RESCUECOM, a computer repair company, says Apple’s iMac is an ”excellent computer” that’s less than half the price of Microsoft’s Surface Studio (though he recommends the Studio as the best-in-class for desktops over $4,000).

Milman says the latest iteration of the iMac is by far the best to date. The 21.5 inch version comes with a massive 1TB drive, usually reserved for models in a much higher price range. 4K refers to the iMac's 4K impressive Retina display, which offers a quality of graphics, brightness, color, and clarity most typically found in higher-priced models. 

“It is exceptional, particularly for such a large screen,” says Milman. “Like previous models, the new iMac remains incredibly thin, not to mention...

IDC: Apple Watch sees 52.4% year-over-year growth

The worldwide wearables market took another step forward in the third quarter of 2017 (3Q17) with total shipment volume reaching 26.3 million units, up 7.3% year over year, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker

Apple's recent introduction of cellular connectivity with the Apple Watch Series 3 is helping provide an uplift to sales and awareness of wearables, adds the research group. The company has seen 52.4% year-over-year growth for its smartwatch.

But while the overall market showed continued growth, it also showed a growing trend towards smart wearables (devices capable of running third party applications) and away from basic wearables (devices that don’t run third party applications), according to IDC. Apple's results reflect the timing of its product refresh late in the quarter and this was evident in the overall...

How the Apple Watch precisely tracks your swimming...

This is a Popular Science article from a few months ago, but I came across it last night, found it fascinating.

Rob Verger, Popular Science:

The device has functioned as a swim tracker since it became water-resistant in 2016, but with its latest operating system, it presents a more granular metric: set detection. It knows when you rest at the pool’s edge and then uses that information to divide the workout into sets of laps, showing you how far and long you swam in each, what stroke, and your rest time.

And:

Apple built its own algorithms to discern the stroke of swimmers of all skill levels, as well the calories they’re burning. The process involved gathering data from more than 700 swimmers and over 1,500 swim sessions. And Apple gathered even more data from people swimming in place (in an “endless” pool) while wearing a mask that descended from the ceiling.

And:

The watch uses the gyroscope and accelerometer to track the motion of your...

Strong early adoption of the iPhone X positions Apple for market leadership, according to Ian Fogg, senior director, mobile and telecom, IHS Markit

In eight countries, the iPhone X already accounts for over 2% of the iPhone active installed base just three weeks after its first availability on Nov. 3. The leading countries for iPhone X adoption are markets with high gross domestic product (GDP) per head such as Singapore, Denmark, Switzerland and Japan.

IHS Markit, a research group, is able to use its unique measurement of active installed base data to provide very early insights into how the iPhone X is performing, well in advance of the availability of shipment data, says Fogg.

Countries where “Plus” model iPhones have been successful in the past have a strong correlation with initial levels of iPhone X adoption, according to IHS Markit. Consumers in those markets have a greater interest in larger displays...

Billboard:

It’s been three and a half years since Jimmy Iovine left his role as CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M to run Apple Music, but that doesn’t keep him from thinking about the problems facing labels today — or the rest of the industry for that matter.

Over a dinner recently at NeueHouse Hollywood in Los Angeles with Iovine and Allen Hughes, who directed the four-part documentary series, The Defiant Ones — which focuses on storied careers of Iovine and Dr Dre., his partner in developing Beats Electronics — a handful of journalists lobbed questions at and shared their thoughts with the iconic exec.

This was a fascinating read. Not too long, and completely Jimmy.

Just a little taste:

It’s not the price point that’s the problem for streaming services. It’s the free alternatives that are undermining the system in a way film and television streaming platforms are not forced to manage. He pointed to Netflix as a prime example, spending $6 billion...

I went into the iPhone X launch with some preconceived notions about Touch ID having some convenience advantages over Face ID.

As this article points out, the convenience advantage lies with Face ID, and Face ID is only going to get better over time. It is the future. Good read.

Apple has been granted a second patent (number 20170340209) for using an Apple Watch to monitor blood pressure. This one is dubbed “blood pressure monitoring using a multi-function wrist-worn device.” The first (number 20170293727) for a “user device” for “intelligent blood pressure monitoring.” 

The newly granted patent provides non-invasive devices, methods, and systems for determining a pressure of blood within a cardiovascular system of a user, the cardiovascular system including a heart and the user having a wrist covered by skin. It discloses a variety of wrist-worn devices — various smartwatch models — having a variety of sensors configured to non-invasively engage the skin on the wrist of the user for sensing a variety of user signals from the cardiovascular system of the user. 

The goal is to passively track blood pressure values without any interaction required on the part of the user or may allow for on demand or point measurements of blood pressure values...

Google Faces Lawsuit For Gathering Personal Data...

Mark Wilson writes: A group going by the name Google You Owe Us is taking Google to court in the UK, complaining that the company harvested personal data from 5.4 million iPhone users. The group is led by Richard Lloyd, director of consumer group Which?, and it alleges that Google bypassed privacy settings on iPhones between June 2011 and February 2012. The lawsuit seeks compensation for those affected by what is described as a "violation of trust." Google is accused of breaching UK data protection laws, and Lloyd says that this is "one of the biggest fights of my life." Even if the case is successful, the people represented by Google You Owe Us are not expected to receive more than a few hundred pounds each, and this is not an amount that would make much of an impact on Google's coffers.
