Apple’s health team has been working with tech startup Health Gorilla to add diagnostic data to HealthKit, CNBC reports. Apple is making a big push to expand HealthKit to become a portable repository of all of a person’s medical records, and two people familiar with the initiative said Health Gorilla is working to integrate with “hospitals, lab-testing companies such as Quest and LabCorp and imaging centers” to add blood work and…

New “creation of the iPhone” book hits shelves, some...

Benjamin Mayo, 9to5Mac:

The book claiming to explore the secret history of the iPhone, The One Device, is now on sale in physical form ($19 at Amazon). You can also preorder the ebook for Kindle and iBooks as well; it will be released digitally on Thursday.

The book in question is The One Device: The Secret History of the iPhone. Here’s a link to the book on Amazon. Looks like the Kindle version is available now, though it seems like this might only be in the US.

Authored by Brian Merchant, the book promises to detail the ‘untold account’ of how the iPhone was made. It features anecdotes from ex-Apple executives and top employees about the development of the secret project, as well as an ‘undercover’ trip to Foxconn and more. Early reviews of ‘The One Device’ are mixed.

Leaked Recording: Inside Apple's Global War On...

Reader citadrianne writes: A recording of an internal briefing at Apple earlier this month obtained by The Outline sheds new light on how far the most valuable company in the world will go to prevent leaks about new products. The briefing, titled 'Stopping Leakers -- Keeping Confidential at Apple,' was led by Director of Global Security David Rice, Director of Worldwide Investigations Lee Freedman, and Jenny Hubbert, who works on the Global Security communications and training team. According to the hour-long presentation, Apple's Global Security team employs an undisclosed number of investigators around the world to prevent information from reaching competitors, counterfeiters, and the press, as well as hunt down the source when leaks do occur. Some of these investigators have previously worked at U.S. intelligence agencies like the National Security Administration (NSA), law enforcement agencies like the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service, and in the U.S. military.

Apple announces Apple Camp and Kids Hour summer...

Need to help your kids battle the summer boredom blues? You may be in luck: Apple on Tuesday announced its multi-day summer camp sessions called (appropriately) Apple Camp, which goes along with the special kid-focused Today at Apple creative workshops. Apple Camp and Today at Apple sessions are free, but space is limited, so you’ll need to sign up sooner than later. The programs are available at your local Apple store.

Apple Camp

The first of Apple’s summer offerings, Apple Camp, is a three-day program that involves 90-minute sessions for kids age 8 to 12 years old. Apple offers three different sessions: Coding Games and Programming Robots; Creating Characters and Composing Music; and Stories in Motion with iMovie.

Apple is the top global vendor in IT

In the Gartner Global Top 100: IT vendors, Apple is the largest vendor with more than $218 billion in IT revenue — approximately $79 billion larger than the No. 2 vendor, Samsung Vendor Group. The top global 100 vendors in IT in 2016 are based on their revenue across IT (excluding communication services) and component market segments.

As enterprises increasingly digitalize their products and services, digital giants (Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent) can become involved in, or even take over, the digital experience, according to the research group. Gartner predicts that by 2021, 20% of all activities an individual engages in will involve at least one of the top seven...

A fascinating report from The Outline shares highlights from an internal presentation about Apple’s efforts to increase product secrecy; a leak of an internal meeting about leaks. The briefing apparently described how Apple security teams prevent information from ‘leaking to competitors, counterfeiters and press.’

One of the most interesting tidbits is that Apple believes there are now more leaks coming from its employees on campus than the supply chain. In 2016, Apple reportedly leaked 4 housings out of 65 million produced in factories …

In iOS 11, App Store editorial comes out of the...

Jason Snell, Six Colors:

while the App Store has indeed had an editorial team for quite a while, Apple’s approach to App Store editorial has been nearly invisible. Editors select apps to highlight and might write short bits of text for use in collections, but for the most part the job has seemed to be more about curation than words.

This is not meant to disparage curation—it’s an important job and one of the ways the App Store can highlight the hard work of app developers who are making polished, impressive products.

Damn right! Curation is a skill and highly polished curation a valuable skill.

With iOS 11, though, Apple’s really showing that it has redefined what the App Store editorial team is for. In the redesigned App Store app in iOS 11, app highlights go way beyond buttons that would present an app’s App Store page when you tapped. The new Today tab is populated with full-fledged feature articles, with screen shots, videos, animations, pull quotes...

World’s first water park for people with disabilities

Mashable:

A new water park called Morgan’s Inspiration Island was designed for people with a wide range of disability identities — and it’s mind-blowingly accessible. The park, which opens June 17 in San Antonio, Texas, is fully wheelchair-accessible and hopes to welcome people with disabilities through careful consideration in design.

And:

The tropical-themed park features six major attractions, including an accessible river boat ride and a wide variety of splash pads — surfaces with geysers, water cannons, and rain curtains. Splash pads, unlike pools, are more accessible to people with mobility-related disabilities, but still provide the full water park experience.

And, notably, anyone with a disability is welcomed into the park for free.

This is amazing. Clearly, this was a labor of love, created with accessibility as a goal, rather than financial gain. Park founder Gordon Hartman did this for his daughter Morgan.

New FDA plan could mean big boost for Apple and...

Yahoo Finance:

When AAPL released the Apple Watch, it included a heart rate sensor. It has proven extremely accurate in testing, recently coming within 2% of the numbers reported by an electrocardiograph (EKG). However, AAPL has never marketed it as a medical device, because doing so would mean FDA certification.

Once under FDA regulation, the company would have to get each Apple Watch certified, in a process that could require months. Having to go through FDA certification would also reveal AAPL’s products before release — something the secretive company would hate — and could delay rolling out software updates.

But:

The FDA just announced its new Digital Health Innovation Plan, and it could change everything.

Noting that digital technologies used in consumer devices “have the power to transform health care,” the agency is trying to streamline the process needed for FDA approval. With a fall target for the pilot program, the FDA says it’s...

Apple patent hints at a flexible newspaper/magazine...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,684,341) for a flexible display that can be used as a self-updating digital newspaper. (By the way, the image shown is not of the device, but of a malleable LG plastic display; I included it to show one possible iteration of the Apple device.)

The invention relates to an apparatus and method to communicate multimedia documents or content to a mobile or fixed device over a wireless network. In particular, the mobile or fixed device may be configured as a digital periodical or advertising device to transmit and receive converted multimedia documents or content delivered using multimedia messaging service over a wireless network. A request to retrieve information from a server over a wireless network is triggered based on flexing the flexible display device and other gestures.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that wireless communications has enabled widespread easy access to mass media and multimedia information via mobile...

In January, Apple filed a lawsuit again Qualcomm, the world’s dominant supplier of baseband processors, alleging the chip supplier demanded unfair terms for its technology. The same month, the Federal Trade Commission filed a complaint in federal district court charging Qualcomm with using anticompetitive tactics to maintain its monopoly in the supply of a key semiconductor device used in cell phones...

In a new development in its legal battle with Qualcomm, Apple is arguing that the patent deal which forces the company to pay a licence fee for every iPhone manufactured is invalid. It is accusing Qualcomm of double-dipping by charging once for a licence fee for use of its patented technology and again for the chip which uses that technology.

Apple had previously accused Qualcomm of exacting revenge against the Cupertino company, but this is the first time it has specifically attacked the basis of the licence deal between the two companies …

Philly resident Cori Fisher worked at the Philadelphia Apple Store from 2010 to 2016, first as an Apple Store “expert” and later as a “specialist.” According to allegations contained in his lawsuit, the Apple Store racially profiled black customers. Fisher claims that he witnessed a store manager asking a cop to get some black teenagers out of the store, and he says that the Apple Store told its...

Beta version of NVMe driver in High Sierra builds...

Apple may have removed restrictions on the NVMe driver in the High Sierra beta, a move that might suggest that future Macs won’t be limited in which mass-storage flash drives may be used, possibly including both the “modular” Mac Pro and the iMac Pro.

The improved driver was first noted by the cool cats over at The Mac Observer. Through the improved driver, third-party NVMe drives could work on compatible motherboards without the need for a hacked driver.

At present, NVMe drives can only be used in assorted “Hackintosh” computers, as there are no official Macs with a standard NVMe drive slot. The beta for the new driver may resolve this issue, as on the vast majority of the motherboards tested by the community, the driver seems to be able to connect to all manufacturers’ NVMe drives.

Apple’s work on the updated driver could indicate that the company is looking to move beyond its current hardware and may adopt support for NVMe hardware, which has been found...

This could prove nifty.

IKEA has partnered with Apple and is working on an augmented reality app that shows what certain IKEA furniture will look like inside your home.

Executive Michael Valdsgaard offered the following:

When it launches, the app will let customers choose which IKEA product they want and then use an iPhone or iPad powered by ARKit to see how the IKEA furniture looks in their own home before it’s purchased. IKEA has been doing this for years now, including an early version which required users to scan pages of an IKEA catalogue to view AR furniture, but the company said that Apple’s platform will greatly increase the consistency and quality of the experience.

Valdsgaard said that the app will support between 500 and 600 IKEA products at launch with more being added afterwards. The augmented reality experience will even directly play into the development and launch of new products, as Valdsgaard explained that the company plans to...

How to add a Touch Bar to your new iMac

Apple’s revamped iMac didn’t come with the option of a Magic Keyboard with Touch Bar as I anticipated. However, you can add one thanks to the Duet Display app.

The app — well, actually, it’s two apps: one for your Mac and one for your iOS device — allows you to use your iPhone or iPad as an extra display. I use it as a secondary display — with a “virtual” Touch Bar — with my iMac.

First, install duet for iOS. The latest version is 1.4.1 and requires iOS 8.0 or later. 

After installation, you'll see the icon n your iDevice’s home screen. Tap on it to open when you want to use duet.

Scosche RH1060 are superb Bluetooth stereo headphones

Scosche's RH1060 Reference Grade Bluetooth headphones, at $199, are pricey, but they're the best all-around headphones I've ever used except for Apple's AirPods.

During use, I was astounded by the music quality. I'm not an audiophile, but the audio performance is impeccable. The bass is deep, the mid-range is warm and clean, the treble crisp, and the highs sound natural.

The RH1060 features 40mm drivers designed with a custom blend of mylar, precision wound copper voice coils and rare-earth neodymium magnets to create an extremely accurate musical reProduction.  A ported sound chamber Provides the exact air space necessary for optimal component performance.

Apple officially announced macOS High Sierra at WWDC 2017 earlier this month. While the new OS doesn't feature a ton of user-visible improvements and is ultimately shaping up to be a low-key release, it does feature several behind-the-scenes changes that could help make it the most stable macOS update in years. Andrew Cunningham from Ars Technica has "browsed the dev docs and talked with Apple to get some more details of the update's foundational changes." Here are some excerpts from three key areas of the report: APFS Like iOS 10.3, High Sierra will convert your boot drive to APFS when you first install it -- this will be true for all Macs that run High Sierra, regardless of whether they're equipped with an SSD, a spinning HDD, or a Fusion Drive setup. In the current beta installer, you're given an option to uncheck the APFS box (checked by default) before you start the install process, though that doesn't necessarily guarantee that it will survive in the final version. It's also...

Medium and the Scourge of Persistent Sharing Dickbars

Medium seems to continue to grow in popularity as a publishing platform, and as it does, I’m growing more and more frustrated by their on-screen “engagement” turds. Every Medium site displays an on-screen “sharing” bar that covers the actual content I want to read. This is particularly annoying on the phone, where screen real estate is most precious. Now on iOS they’ve added an “Open in App” button that literally makes the last 1-2 lines of content on screen unreadable. To me these things are as distracting as having someone wave their hand in front of my face while I try to read.

Here’s an annotated screenshot (and threaded rant) I posted to Twitter while trying to read Steven Sinofksy’s WWDC 2017 trip report on my iPad Pro review unit last week.

anderzole shares a report from BGR: Brian Merchant's new book, The One Device: The Secret History of the iPhone, provides a captivating and intriguing look at how the most revolutionary product of our time was designed and developed. Through a series of interviews with Apple engineers and designers who played an integral role in the iPhone's creation and development, Merchant maps out how the iPhone came to be after more than two years of non-stop work at breakneck speed. One of the more interesting revelations from the book is that the iPhone design Apple unveiled in January of 2007 might have looked vastly different if Steve Jobs had his way. According to Imran Chaudhri, a veteran Apple designer who spent 19 years working on Apple's elite Human Interface Team, Steve Jobs wanted the original iPhone to have a back button in addition to a home button. Believe it or not, the original iPhone could have very well looked like a modern-day Android device. "The touch-based phone, which...

AWT News Update: June 19, 2017

Monday's here! We have a few bits of Apple news for you that weren't on the regular Apple World Today website, so listen up and you'll be informed:

  • Developer Beta 4 of macOS Sierra 10.12.6 was released to developers today
  • Apple's removed restrictions on NVMe flash storage, which means that next year's Mac Pro and the iMac Pro coming out later this year may be able to use many third-party NVMe drives for fast booting
  • There's a way to get Apple Music for less than $9.99 per month, and we tell you how
  • PayPal's CEO thinks that Apple's upcoming Apple Pay-based person-to-person payment system won't be able to compete with PayPal's Venmo

Urbanears is back with another very interesting Bluetooth headphone, the Stadion. Though far from an audiophile listening experience, the Stadion’s unconventional form factor might be just what some users need.{/exp:char_limit}

'The Unwillingness To Foresee The Future'

An anonymous reader shares a few excerpts from Ben Thompson's analysis: Back in 2006, when the iPhone was a mere rumor, Palm CEO Ed Colligan was asked if he was worried: "We've learned and struggled for a few years here figuring out how to make a decent phone," he said. "PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They're not going to just walk in." What if Steve Jobs' company did bring an iPod phone to market? Well, it would probably use WiFi technology and could be distributed through the Apple stores and not the carriers like Verizon or Cingular, Colligan theorized." I was reminded of this quote after Amazon announced an agreement to buy Whole Foods for $13.7 billion; after all, it was only two years ago that Whole Foods founder and CEO John Mackey predicted that groceries would be Amazon's Waterloo. And while Colligan's prediction was far worse -- Apple simply left Palm in the dust, unable to compete -- it is Mackey who has to call Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, the...

An individual Apple Music subscription costs $9.99 per month ($119.88 per year), but you can now save about 20 percent with Apple’s new $99 annual subscription. For some people, not having to account for monthly credit card charges will be an added bonus. Apple has made the new option a bit hard to find, but 9to5Mac explains how to get it. Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t yet offer an annual subscription for family or student plans.

The Art of Manipulation and Misdirection


Last week, I listened to an economist talk about Apple's complaints that Qualcomm had charged Apple too much for access to patents. What I thought was fascinating was that Apple had folks focused on the 5 percent that Qualcomm had charged it instead of on the massive profit that Apple made on each phone. The price of the iPhone 8 is rumored to be well over $1,000 -- but it could cost well under $500 to build. All other smartphone prices seem to be trending down, while Apple's appear to be trending up. This is an example of expert manipulation.

As a refinement update, macOS 10.13 High Sierra doesn’t seem to offer much over 10.12 Sierra, but there’s a lot going on beneath the surface. Ars Technica’s Andrew Cunningham takes a deep dive into the foundational improvements coming to High Sierra, including the APFS filesystem, the HEVC video and HEIF image formats, and the Metal 2 graphics API. Although most users won’t likely even realize these technologies are in play, they should make your Mac faster and more efficient.

IKEA details plans for app using Apple’s ARKit

When it launches, the app will let customers choose which IKEA product they want and then use an iPhone or iPad powered by ARKit to see how the IKEA furniture looks in their own home before it’s purchased. IKEA has been doing this for years now, including an early version which required users to scan pages of an IKEA catalogue to view AR furniture, but the company said that Apple’s platform will greatly increase the consistency and quality of the experience.

I really hopes this works well. This could really help AR take off for the average consumer.

Apple, Ikea teaming up for an augmented reality app

Apple and Ikea have announced an augmented reality app that allows users to try out how furniture will look in the home before buying.

In an interview with Di Digital, Inter Ikea’s Leader of Digital Transformation Michael Valdsgaard says of Apple: “It will become the biggest AR-platform in the world overnight. It’s super interesting to us.” 

The app will launch the fall and apparently be based around the ARKit that Apple introduced this month at its annual Worldwide Developer Conference. It allows developers to tap into the latest computer vision technologies to build detailed virtual content on top of real-world scenes for interactive gaming, immersive shopping experiences, industrial design and more.
