In their latest effort to pull customers away from other carriers, Sprint has started offering a new unlimited plan with up to 5 lines for $90/month. This limited time offer from the fourth most used U.S. wireless carrier comes on the heels of T-Mobile simplifying and bundling taxes and fees into their plans. In contrast, last month both AT&T and Verizon made changes to dissuade their customers from continuing on with grandfathered unlimited plans. We’ll break down the fine print of Sprint’s newest offer after the break…

Rumor: 2017 iPhones to enter production early

Personally, I’m not expecting new iPhones until September, but DigiTimes Research says the next gen smartphones will enter production early. Quoting unnamed “industry sources,” the article says Apple has requested its chip and component suppliers start trial production, inspection and prepare inventories for the new iPhone series sooner than usual. 

Deliveries of chips and parts for the new models are expected to kick off in the second half of first-quarter 2017, the article adds. The upcoming smartphone will probably be dubbed the “iPhone 8,” but some pundits believe it will be called the
“iPhone X” to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the device.

How to enable WhatsApp's two-step verification

WhatsApp is adding an extra security feature to help keep its more than a billion users safe from hacks. The company is rolling out two-step verification to its users worldwide.

When it’s available you will find it in the messaging service’s app under Settings > Account > Two-step verification > Enable.

WhatsApp’s approach to two-step verification differs from what other online services such as Facebook or Google do. Instead of using an app that generates one-time passcodes, WhatsApp requires you to create your own memorable six-digit passcode. To help you remember your code, WhatsApp will prompt you to enter it from time to time.

Apple users have higher credit scores, loan amounts...

Think you’re clever for using Apple products? You’re right! A new study says we have higher credit scores, loan amounts and better rates than Android and Windows users.

LendingTree, an online loan marketplace, analyzed over two million purchase mortgage and personal loan requests to better understand how Americans are shopping for their loans. The findings show that 41% of purchase mortgage shoppers and almost half (48.53%) of personal loan shoppers use a mobile device to shop and compare loan offers from different lenders. Additionally, the analysis suggests a correlation between a user's device, credit score, and loan amount.

Overall, potential borrowers using a Mac have the highest average credit score in both the mortgage (FICO average 722) and personal loan (FICO average 683) categories, along with the highest average loan amount in each. In 2016, the average loan amount for Mac users was $274,412 for a mortgage and $14,650 for a personal loan, much higher than...

Macquarie, ING to support Apple Pay in Australia

Macquarie Group and ING Direct plan to start using Apple Pay in Australia this month, “hoping to snatch market share from the major retail banks through digital technology,” reports Reuters.

So far only one of the major banks, Australia and New Zealand Banking Group, has adopted the Apple Pay system, creating an opportunity for smaller rivals in a market dominated by the “Big Four” lenders. Those banks, including the top lender, National Australia Bank, have lodged a joint application with anti-trust regulators seeking approval to collectively negotiate with Apple to install their own electronic payments applications on iPhones. 

Apple, which operates its Apple Pay mobile payment service, doesn’t allow third-party electronic payment apps to be installed on the smartphone. The banks are seeking to be able to negotiate jointly for access to Apple's...

The emoji solution always works. Copy and paste works too, especially if I do the copy on my Mac and paste on my iOS device.

UPDATE: Thanks to a big wave of Twitter response, I can see that there are some iOS installs with default text substitutions for (c), etc. But others do not have these substitutions. Perhaps they were replaced? Regardless, you can add them back in via Settings > General > Keyboards > Text Replacement.

On the future of the iPad

Jason Snell, writing for Macworld:

Look out to 2025 and imagine a futuristic computing device made from Apple that’s larger than a phone, filling the ecosystem that currently is filled by laptops and iPads (and maybe even desktop Macs). This is a thin, light device, with battery life and sensors and other features that we can only dream about today.

And:

Apple seems to see the Mac as a rock-solid platform for laptop and desktop computers that people depend on to do their jobs. The Mac is, in many ways, defined by the fact that it’s a keyboard-and-trackpad-driven system with a windowed user interface. If you take that away and simplify the Mac, you might be able to get to something a bit closer to the iPad–but you risk losing some of the key attributes that make the Mac what it is.

And:

The iPad, on the other hand, seems not too far away from that 2025 device already. What’s required is an evolution of the very simple touch interface pioneered by...

Get a great deal on this Eye Level In-Car Smartphone...

Smartphone mounts for cars are nothing new, but most of them have one of two failings. First, if they use some sort of suction cup or friction pad to hold onto the dashboard or window, chances of having the entire assembly -- smartphone and all -- come crashing down while you're driving are pretty good. Second, if they use a vent clip to hold the smartphone in place in front of a car air vent, the phone can either get too hot in the winter with the heat on or quite chilly in the summer with the A/C cranked up. Today we have a deal on the Sky Innovations Eye Level In-Car Smartphone Holder ($23.95), which eliminates both of the shortcomings with a clever design.

This mount is ingenious -- it clips onto the rear view mirror so...

The myth of Apple’s great design

Ian Bogost wrote an article for The Atlantic with the provocative title The Myth of Apple’s Great Design.

Here’s a quote:

Apple has great design is the biggest myth in technology today. The latest victim of this ideology comes in the form a remarkable report on the late Steve Jobs’s final project, still in production: a new, $5 billion Cupertino headquarters for Apple Inc.

And:

But if Apple designs at its best when attending closely to details like those revealed in the construction of its spaceship headquarters, then presumably the details of its products would stand out as worthy precedents. Yet, when this premise is tested, it comes up wanting. In truth, Apple’s products hide a shambles of bad design under the perfection of sleek exteriors....

Some iPhone 7 matte black owners complain of paint...

You waited weeks for the ultra-cool iPhone 7 in a matte black color and this begins to happen.

According to a growing number of users on Apple’s Support forums, some iPhone 7 matte black units are suffering from paint chips. The issue seems to be occurring even with the use of a case, wherein, the paint chips around the edges of the device as well as on the back.

The issue is similar to one that plagued the black iPhone 5 when it was first released. While the issue appears to be rather limited in scope as of right now, the Apple Support forum has reached multiple pages in length and continues to grow

From the reports issues, the iPhone 7 Plus model seems to be more affected than the smaller iPhone 7 model. Apple Support seems to have been less than helpful in replacing or repairing affected units and has called it “an uncovered cosmetic flaw.”

One user offered the following:

Apple and magic

Carolina Milanesi:

Another common argument shared by some Apple critics is that the inability to deliver a killer product rests solely with Tim Cook. When we consider the two new lines of products Apple brought to market under Cook — Apple Watch and AirPods — I struggle to see how people could honestly believe Cook is failing.

And:

I have been wearing an Apple Watch every day since it first came out. Yet, whenever people ask me if I love it, I hesitate to say I do because it is hard to explain why. Apple Watch gives back what you put in. You need to invest some time in setting up your preferences when it comes to notifications, pick your apps, buy into fitness, and add your credit cards. Most importantly, you need to trust Apple Watch to pick up some of the responsibility you have given to your iPhone for so long. When you do so, Apple Watch becomes a trusted companion you will not easily go without.

And:

This is the slogan of Apple’s AirPod...

Apple delays shipments for LG UltraFine 5K Display...

While LG works on a fix for the Wi-Fi router/shielding conflict on its UltraFine 5K Display, Apple has delayed shipments for the unit and removed in store pickup options.

New orders for the LG UltraFine 5K Display will now ship out in five to six weeks, ensuring buyers will get a display with updated hardware that fixes the Wi-Fi interference problem.

Before the issue had been made public, the displays were set to ship out in a few weeks’ time. For a time in January, shipping estimates ranged from three to five days.

The delay surfaced after customers began complaining about the conflict back in December. Users began noticing display glitches and freezes that were eventually attributed to interference caused by close proximity to a Wi-Fi router. LG confirmed the existence of a problem last week, apologized, and announced an official hardware fix.

Going forward, all UltraFine 5K Displays manufactured after February 2017 include additional shielding...

If I order them online today, I can have them by Tuesday for a $17 next day shipping charge, $19 if I want them before noon, or free two shipping if I am willing to wait until Wednesday. Obviously, depending where you live, your shipping charges may be different.

The gray and blue models are currently showing delivery dates of February 23-28 (13 to 18 days from now) with free two day shipping, one day sooner with the overnight shipping fees mentioned above.

I want an Magic Trackpad for the Mac with Apple...

I expect the Touch Bar on certain models of the 2016 MacBook Pro is just the beginning of ways Apple will offer touch input on Macs without actually have touch screens on laptops or desktops. I expect to see a Magic Keyboard with Touch Bar for iMacs, Mac Pros, and Mac minis when (“if,” in some cases) the desktops are updated.

I’d also love to see a Magic Trackpad 2 with Apple Pencil support. In July 2016, Apple was granted a patent (number 9,400,570) for a “stylus with inertial sensor” with images (shown) showing the Apple Pencil working with a Mac.

What’s more, per the patent, the Apple Pencil may also be operated as a as a joystick, a rotational controller, or other input devices in addition to serving as a touch sensor input device. For example, on-screen content may be rotated, tilted, or otherwise manipulated using rotational controller and joystick input from the inertial sensor.

Who knows? We might just see an Apple Pencil 2 with Mac support this year....

All Three New 2017 iPhones To Feature Wireless...

In late October, Nikkei Asian Review released a report claiming Foxconn was testing wireless charging modules for the iPhone 8. Another report has surfaced recently that further reinforces those claims. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo now claims that all three new iPhones expected to launch later this year will feature wireless charging. MacRumors reports: Kuo said wireless charging increases the internal temperature of smartphones, so he expects the rumored iPhone 8 with an OLED display and glass casing to have a new 3D Touch module with "additional graphite sheet lamination" in order to prevent the device from malfunctioning due to overheating. An excerpt from Kuo's research note obtained by MacRumors: "While we don't expect general users to notice any difference, lamination of an additional graphite sheet is needed for better thermal control and, thus, steady operation; this is because FPCB is replaced with film, which is more sensitive to temperature change of the 3D touch...

“In fact, we were able to access records dated more than one year back,” wrote Elcomsoft’s CEO Vladimir Katalov in a Thursday blog post.

Users can set iCloud to store their browsing history so that it's available from all connected devices. The researchers found that when a user deletes that history, iCloud doesn't actually erase it but keeps it in a format invisible to the user.

A card with the bonus is included in the box, YouTube host Jonathan Morrison noted in a clip comparing the earbuds with Apple's AirPods. Naturally, since I paid for ‘em myself, no such card is bundled with the latter.

The BeatsX not only use the W1 chip found in Apple's own AirPods, but also use in-ear earbuds instead of the "earpod-like" design of the AirPods. They’re available now in black and white colors, but blue and grey versions are supposedly in the works.

Since the device supports both wired (Ethernet) and Wi-Fi networking options, you may be led to believe that you’ll get the best network performance from your Apple TV by going with the wired option — after all, wired connections have traditionally always been…

On Apple’s Capital Return Program

Eric Jackson, writing for Forbes:

I have been a staunch critic of Apple’s capital return plan since
it started in 2012. I think it signals to Wall Street that Apple
is out of growth ideas, which is preposterous even though it’s now
a $700 billion market cap company. […]

I think I remember some Wall Street analysts defending the
dividend component of the Apple capital return plan in 2012
because it would “bring in a whole new class of investors to the
stock.” Congrats on attracting a few more widows and orphans
retail investors. […]

The whole capital return program has been a lot of work on Apple’s
part to basically do a little bit of stock buyback.

He quotes from my 2014 piece, “Just Do Something”, which you should read now to refresh your memory. Jackson...

In a new NOVA documentary episode that recently aired on PBS, David Pogue hosts and checks out a next generation battery invented by Mike Zimmerman that won’t explode like the Samsung Note 7 (or create a thermal event) even when cut or punctured. The Search for the Super Battery episode is an hour-long look at “the hidden world of energy storage and how it holds the keys to a greener future.”

With the lithium-ion waste fire at Samsung’s SDI battery factory this week, it’s clear the evolution of batteries should not only focus on capacity, function and end-user safety, but should also consider the employees that produce batteries and the waste’s environmental impacts…

AI Smackdown! Apple's Siri vs. Amazon Alexa

One of the big surprises of the past few years has been the rise in popularity of Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant. Alexa resides in a number of Amazon and third-party products now like the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Tap, Fire TV, and Fire Tablet. Although it’s not an Apple product — in fact, Alexa is designed to compete directly on many fronts with Apple services — I thought it would be a good idea to introduce Alexa to Apple World Today readers…if they haven’t already introduced themselves to “her”.

My experiences have come over the past three months with a $50 Echo Dot (affiliate link) and a $65 JAM HX-P590BK Jam Voice portable speaker with Alexa. The Dot is equipped with what Amazon refers to as “far field voice recognition”, meaning that it listens to all sounds and responds to a voice prompt — “Alexa”. You don’t need to be right next to the...

External Link: Apple Preparing to Move into “...

Reuters reports that, after years of delays and an estimated $5 billion price tag, Apple hopes to start moving into its new “spaceship” campus in a few months. One of Steve Jobs’s final initiatives, the round glass building was projected to be finished in 2015 but was held up by a lengthy city approval process and insane attention to detail. Although it looks (and sounds) impressive, some architects wonder if the building is an example of form over function. Louise Mozingo, chair of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at U.C. Berkeley, told Reuters that the building could be tough to navigate. Other sources have said that the building has been a tremendous drain on Apple; we can hope that completing it will help the company devote more time, attention, and resources to its core products and services.

Dozens of iOS Apps Vulnerable to WiFi Snooping


Dozens of applications for Apple's mobile devices are vulnerable to WiFi snoopers, according to Will Strafach, CEO of the Sudo Security Group. He identified 76 popular iOS apps available at Apple's App Store that were vulnerable to wireless eavesdroppers, even though the connections were supposed to be protected by encryption. There have been 18 million downloads of the vulnerable apps, he said. Strafach categorized 33 of the vulnerable apps as "low risk." Another 24 iOS apps were "medium risk," and the remaining 19 were "high risk."

Rumor: all 2017 iPhones will support wireless...

In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo analyst says that all three new iPhones that will launch this year will support wireless charging.

This feature will increase the internal temperature of the smartphone, so he thinks the “iPhone 8” with an OLED display and glass casing will sport a new 3D Touch module with "additional graphite sheet lamination.

“While we don’t expect general users to notice any difference, lamination of an additional graphite sheet is needed for better thermal control and, thus, steady operation; this is because FPCB is replaced with film, which is more sensitive to temperature change of the 3D touch sensor in OLED iPhone,” Kuo writes.

Chances this rumor is true (IMHO): 100%. iPhone users have long wanted wireless charging; this is the year we’ll get it.

Safari histories are stored in iCloud for more than...

According to the CEO of Russian hacking tool creator Elcomsoft, Apple is storing Safari histories in the iCloud going back more than a year, possibly much longer, even where the user has asked for them to be wiped from memory.

Elcomsoft chief Vladimir Katalov told FORBES that Apple kept a separate iCloud record, titled “tombstone,” in which deleted web visits were stored, ostensibly for syncing across devices. When Katalov took Elcomsoft's Phone Breaker software to extract data from the linked iCloud account, he found "deleted" records going back a year.

“It's unclear just how or why Apple is storing cleared browsing history for such a long period. It would appear to be a design issue rather than anything suspicious, and is likely to do with the syncing mechanism between iOS, Mac OS X and Apple servers,” Thomas Fox-Brewster...
