Today’s announcement of the Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular support included details on how the device will function with wireless carrier plans. Apple mentioned that the phone number from the iPhone will remain the same and be usable on the Watch.

There is one obvious caveat though: to get the cellular functionality of your Watch, you may be required to pay an additional fee to your carrier. Only AT&T and Verizon have officially announced their price points as of today, but we’re expecting to learn more from other carriers soon.

BlueBorne Vulnerabilities Impact Over 5 Billion...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bleeping Computer: Security researchers have discovered eight vulnerabilities -- codenamed collectively as BlueBorne -- in the Bluetooth implementations used by over 5.3 billion devices. Researchers say the vulnerabilities are undetectable and unstoppable by traditional security solutions. No user interaction is needed for an attacker to use the BleuBorne flaws, nor does the attacker need to pair with a target device. They affect the Bluetooth implementations in Android, iOS, Microsoft, and Linux, impacting almost all Bluetooth device types, from smartphones to laptops, and from IoT devices to smart cars. Furthermore, the vulnerabilities can be concocted into a self-spreading BlueTooth worm that could wreak havoc inside a company's network or even across the world. "These vulnerabilities are the most serious Bluetooth vulnerabilities identified to date," an Armis spokesperson told Bleeping Computer via email. "Previously identified flaws...

The OLED display Apple is using in its new iPhone X brings several benefits over current LCD technology, but supplies are likely to be limited at first. Will be benefits of the new screen make it worth the wait?

The big kahuna has been announced.

Over at the Apple press event, Apple officially unveiled the iPhone X (pronounced: ten). The handset features a Super Retina Display, incorporates a 5.8-inch OLED with an edge-to-edge design and is available in space gray and silver colors.

Swipe up and pause to enter multitasking.

Apple Announces iPhone X With Edge-To-Edge Display,...

At its event in Cupertino, California today, Apple unveiled the iPhone X to mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. It brings several new features including an edge-to-edge screen, Qi wireless charging, and Face ID. The Verge reports: Because of its edge-to-edge display, the iPhone has no place for a conventional home button, relying instead on a complex facial recognition system to unlock the phone. Called FaceID, the new system will replace TouchID, the home button sensor that's enabled fingerprint logins since 2013's iPhone 5S. Users can wake the phone by swiping up from the button instead of hitting the button. The same gesture will open the control panel once the phone is awake. The updated iPhone 8 will continue unchanged, including both the home button and TouchID. Apple also unveiled the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which are updated versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus released last year. These new devices feature glass backs with support for wireless charging.

The new Apple TV 4K adds support for 4K video (naturally) as well as HDR, or High Dynamic Range, making for a significant upgrade to a product Apple once called a “hobby.” The 4K resolution offers four times the pixels of the current 1080p HD model, while HDR provides a greater range of richer colors with supported titles and TV sets.

The new Apple TV 4K costs $179 with 32GB of RAM and $199 for 64GB. Orders begin Sept. 15, and it ships starting Sept. 22.

Customers who’ve purchased HD movies will receive upgrades in their iTunes libraries to corresponding 4K versions at no additional cost, and new titles in 4K will be sold at the same price as HD versions. Apple said that it’s working with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video to bring their 4K libraries to Apple TV. Apple offered no new information on when an Amazon video app would be available for tvOS.

Apple has officially announced (at least) two new iPhones: iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Both the front and back are now glass, and the band is still aluminum. Silver, space gray, and a “beautiful new gold finish” are available color options. RIP matte black, jet black, and rose gold.

Apple introduces the Apple TV 4K with HDR

As expected, at today’s Apple media event, CEO Tim Cook and Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, introduced the new Apple TV. Or, more precisely, the Apple TV 4K, which has support for 4K and HDR.

4K is known as Ultra High Definition (UHD), while 1080P is simply labelled High Definition (HD). As their names imply, 4K UHD has a considerably higher resolution than 1080P HD video. 4K resolution is exactly 3840 x 2160 pixels, whilst 1080P consists of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

High-dynamic-range imaging (HDRI or HDR) is a set of techniques used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminositythan possible using standard digital imaging or photographic techniques. HDR images can represent more accurately the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, from direct sunlight to faint starlight, and is often captured by way of a plurality of differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter.

Apple launches new iPhone 8 smartphone, skipping...

CUPERTINO, Calif.—At the first event held in the new Steve Jobs Theater on its new campus, Apple announced the new iPhone 8 handset today. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone, and Apple celebrated by doing something very uncharacteristic: skipping the “S” iteration of the iPhone 7 and pushing full-steam ahead with the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models.

The iPhone 8’s design is based off the iPhone 7 in that it doesn’t look incredibly different than Apple’s previous handsets. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are similar in size to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, but they have new glass fronts and backs that nod to the glass construction of the iPhone 4. Both models are made with aerospace-grade aluminum and the glass is reinforced by steel. Each model has a Retina display as well for improved color accuracy, wide color gamut, and True Tone technology.

The New Apple Watch Series 3 Has Cellular Built-In

The first big product unveiling at Apple's Event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California was the Apple Watch Series 3 with built-in support for cellular. TechCrunch reports: Wireless cellular LTE connectivity provided by a built-in chip means the new Apple Watch will be able to stay connected even when it's not tethered to an iPhone, which is a huge step forward in terms of making it an independent mobile device. Pricing for the Series 3 Cellular starts at $399, and a version without cellular starts at $329. Pre-orders begin on September 15, and they'll be available on September 22. The new Apple Watch is visually quite similar to the existing version, with backwards compatibility with existing straps and bands. There's a new Blush Gold color to match the new iPhone color option, and a new ceramic Dark Gray for the higher-end models that joins the existing white. Plus, the cellular version sports that red crown for an extra bit of visual flare. The non-cellular version...

Apple Watch 3 announced; Available on September 22

Today, Apple announced the new Apple Watch 3 with built-in cellular.

After a short video with stories from a number of Apple Watch owners talking about how the Watch is changing their lives and Jeff Williams mentioning how watchOS 4 is going to work to help things out. 

Apple VP Jeff Williams talks to employee Dierdre Caldbeck over Apple Watch 3

The Watch will now show heart rate throughout the day, a resting heart rate, and will warn of a high heart rate when you're not active. The Watch will also look for arrhythmia and atrial fibrillation as part of the Apple Heart Study. watchOS 4 will be out on September 19.

You'll be able to stream 40 million songs to your AirPods with Apple Music, without an iPhone nearby. It has a dual-core processor and a barometric altimeter. The display is the antenna, and the company uses an electronic SIM card. 

New bands will be out from Apple and Hermes, and Nike Plus will have an all new app that takes advantage of...

Apple’s new TV set-top box will play 4K content,...

Samuel Axon

CUPERTINO, Calif.—Aside from iPhones, the Apple TV was the most rumored device ahead of Apple's September event. Today, the company announced a new Apple TV set-top box that's in line with most previous speculations: it can play 4K and HDR content thanks to support from a faster processor.

4K output may not be enticing for those who don't consume 4K content already. Movies and TV shows filmed in 4K are not the majority yet, but companies have been working to produce more of this high-quality video content. Netflix has more than 100 titles streaming in 4K—but as with any 4K content, you need a 4K-capable display to watch it.

Adobe Premiere Elements 15 is just $45 today

Nearly a year has passed since Adobe released Elements 15, and if history is any guide, Elements 16 is probably right around the corner. Right now, Amazon has a deal on Premiere Elements 15, the video editing component of the Elements suite. Typically, Adobe charges $100 for a fresh install of Premiere Elements, but Amazon's selling it for $45 until just before midnight Pacific time on Tuesday night.

When we reviewed Premiere Elements 15 for macOS in October 2016, we found the program very easy to use, stable, and responsive—and a highly recommended alternative to video editors like iMovie. One of the nicest features was Remix, which lets you drop in a music file and automatically match it to the length of your video, as long as it's over...

Tim Cook on how Apple champions the environment,...

Adam Lashinsky, Fortune:

We’re here to put a dent in the universe,” Steve Jobs once famously said. “Otherwise why else even be here?”


For Jobs the dent that he intended for Apple to make in the universe revolved almost totally around creating new products that would change people’s lives. Those products would be gorgeous and useful and fun and surprising, but rarely “good” in and of themselves. Despite a hippie-dippie veneer and earnest marketing, Apple under Jobs was a ruthlessly efficient moneymaker that largely left social programs to others.

I just love that intro. That said, this is an interview with Tim Cook.

Terrific read, lots to process. Way too much to quote out here, but take the time to dig in. Be on the look out for Tim’s comments on how he sees Apple changing the world (products, education, environment, human rights), a discussion of high margins, the Apple economy, health and research, and a lot more.

It’s about to get tougher for cops, border agents to...

Cyrus Farivar, Ars Technica:

According to security experts who have reviewed early developer versions of the forthcoming iOS 11, law enforcement will soon have a harder time conducting digital forensic searches of iPhones and iPads.


Prior to this latest version of the firmware, in order for an iOS device to be “trusted” by a computer that it was physically connected to, that device had to be unlocked first via Touch ID or passcode. Next, the device would prompt the user: “Trust This Computer?” Only then could the entire device’s data could be extracted and imaged. Under iOS 11, this sequence has changed to also specifically require the passcode on the device after the “Trust This Computer?” prompt.

While the change may seem minor, the fact that the passcode will be specifically required as the final step before any data can be pulled off the phone means that law enforcement and border agents won’t have as much routine access to fully image a seized...

Jean-Louis Gassée on the “hiccuping coexistence” of...

Jean-Louis Gassée, Monday Note:

Imagine the 1 pm Sunday scene with crowded sidewalks and sticky car traffic. In today’s world, pedestrians and drivers manage a peaceful if hiccuping coexistence. Through eye contact, nods, hand signals, and, yes, courteous restraint, pedestrians decide to sometimes forfeit their right-of-way and let a few cars come through. On the whole, drivers are equally patient and polite.

That’s the current picture. But with self-driving cars, what then?

Can we “algorithmicize” eye contact and stuttering restraint? Can an SD car acknowledge a pedestrian’s nod, or negotiate “turning rights” with a conventional vehicle?

No, we can’t. And we don’t appear to have a path to overcome such “mundane” challenges.

Great post by Jean-Louis, per usual. Read the whole thing.

X Man

Assuming today’s new high-end iPhone really is going to be called “iPhone X”, there’s one big question we don’t know the answer to yet: is the “X” an “ex” or a “ten”?

I thought they were going to call it iPhone Pro, so take my guess accordingly, but I say it’s an “ex”, not a “ten”. Here’s why:

  • If it’s a “ten”, many — maybe most — people could call it “ex” anyway. No company knows this better than Apple. I think more people called Mac OS X “oh ess ex” than “oh ess ten”. People see an “X” and they say “ex”.

  • If it’s a “ten”, that makes the iPhones 8 it is debuting alongside look instantly out of date. In fact, 10 vs. 8 would make it look like they’re two generations behind. Apple’s goal should be to make all three new iPhones look new, exciting, and desirable.

  • If it’s a “ten”, that strongly suggests it’s a one-off exception in the product line. What would they call next year’s successor? Calling it “iPhone Ten” only...

Great observation from Benjamin Mayo:

If AirPods get refreshed tomorrow as expected, the first-generation will have never been in stock at

— Benjamin Mayo (@bzamayo) September 11, 2017

A simple, but profound observation. To a business like Apple’s, inventory is the enemy. Inventory is sunk cost with the possibility of zero revenue in return. Yes, the AirPods did spend brief moments in stock, but this is as close to zero moments on the shelf as Apple products get.

Do the AirPods represent the future of Apple’s inventory management? Interesting.

We’ve been hearing a few unlikely-sounding whispers about Apple bundling AirPods with the new iPhone X.
