When the Apple Watch Series 3 was unveiled on Tuesday, all the attention was on the new LTE connectivity added to the latest model. But to my mind the far more significant announcement was something which will shortly be available on all Apple Watch models: the new heart-rate monitoring coming with watchOS 4.

There were four elements to this development, and I fully expect more to follow further down the line …

Apple to begin accepting iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus pre...

You can begin pre-ordering your iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in the wee hours come Friday.

Apple has announced that the company will begin accepting pre-orders for the handsets on Friday, September 15 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time or 3:01 a.m. Eastern Time in the United States. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will launch simultaneously in all first wave launch countries, so pre-orders will kick off at 8:01 a.m. in the United Kingdom and 3:01 p.m. in Hong Kong.

It’s unknown as to how readily available supplies of the iPhone 8 might be, so this may be your best chance of locking a unit down. Rumors have also surfaced suggesting that supplies of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus would be constrained alongside the iPhone X, and Plus models in particular are often in short supply.

Apple will accept pre-orders both on its Apple.com website and in the Apple Store app. The Apple Store app often comes back online earlier than Apple.com and is easier to use when ordering....

AppleCare+, repair prices tick up for assorted...

Alongside Tuesday’s announcements of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, Apple has also increased the price of some AppleCare+ warranties, as well as out-of-pocket repair and replacement costs for every recent iPhone model.

The cost of an AppleCare+ warranty has jumped from $129 to $149 for the iPhone 6s Plus, 7 Plus, and 8 Plus. For the iPhone X a plan will cost a record $199, likely because of the potential expense of replacing its 5.8-inch OLED panel.

Non-warrantied screen repairs for the iPhone 6 and iPhone Se have jumped from $99 to $129 and the cost for the iPhone 6s and 7 screen repair is up $20 to $149. All Plus-series phones are $20 more expensive at $169.

Repair costs for “other damage” have been boosted for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus handsets are now set at $319 and $349, respectively. “Other damage” repairs for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be priced at $349 and $399, respectively.

Apple hasn’t said what non-warrantied repairs will cost...

Following the news that Apple will integratie wireless charging into the new iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X, Dan Bladen, CEO at Chargifi, an Intel and Techstars-funded company that provides a wireless charging solution.

Apple Watch Series 3: How much data plans will cost...

If you've decided to buy an Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular, it's going to cost you. For one, it's $70 more than the GPS-only Series 3 watch. But there's also a somewhat hidden cost: You're going to need a data plan.

Don't worry, you're not going to need a separate data plan just for your watch. But even though the wearable uses your existing wireless plan, LTE connectivity on Apple Watch Series 3 doesn't come free. No matter your carrier, you'll be paying a little extra in your monthly bill. So, before you commit to more charges, consider how much an Apple Watch data plan will cost.

IHS: pricing for the Apple TV remains a ‘competitive...

This week Apple unveiled the Apple TV 4K. The product will be priced at $179 and $199 for 32GB and 64GB versions. Will it be a game changer? One research group says "no," though it will be successful.

IHS Markit says though Apple has delivered a 4K-capable Apple TV on a timely basis, as the 4K ecosystem begins to accelerate thanks to limited-but-improving 4K content availability and rising 4K TV adoption. Additionally, the competition (namely Roku, Google, and Amazon) have launched a variety of 4K-capable products, with Roku already supporting 4K at 60 fps with HDR support. This move brings Apple to competitive parity in hardware, coordinated with 4K and HDR content availability from the iTunes store.

In value-added features, the new Apple TV’s gaming capabilities are considerably improved, according to IHS Markit. Also...

It’s been a quick two days since Apple unveiled the latest iPhones in its lineup: the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. That’s right! We’re skipping the standard “S” release and heading straight to prime time with the 8, and there are plenty of new features to look forward to— including wireless charging, a glass back, and a new TrueTone LCD display.

Now that you’ve had time to drink in all the details, it’s time to preorder. Preorders start on Friday, September 15 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific (that’s 3:01 a.m. Eastern—sorry for the bad news). That’s right after midnight, so don’t go to bed without setting your alarm. The phones officially come out next Friday, September 22.

Jaybird Run Review: Truly wireless headphones...

Jaybird has today unveiled the newest addition to its lineup of sports-focused headphones, taking its first shot at a truly wireless experience in the process. The new Run in-ears feature all of the active lifestyle features that one expects from Jaybird, including a sweatproof and water-resistant design. But in an already crowded market, will it will find a place dominated by AirPods and other major players?

Target's Sales Floors Are Switching From Apple...

After three years of Apple products, Target is moving to Android devices for stocking, pulling items, and other essential sales floor duties. Target first outfitted its employees with Apple products in 2014, replacing PDAs with iPod Touches. Gizmodo reports: In Fall of 2016, Target stores began testing the Zebra TC51, which runs Android 6.0 Mashmallow and was confirmed to Gizmodo as "the new MyDevices for store team members chainwide" by a company spokesperson over email. On Reddit's r/Target page and the unofficial employee forum The Breakroom, the new devices have been met with enthusiasm -- and plenty of jabs at the old iOS scanners. "The current iOS my devices we have all sorts of issues, connection issues, scanner issues, and tons more," one Breakroom poster complained. On Reddit, a former store manager wrote that "the iPod hardware they used as on the floor scanners for employees died quickly and there was no way of swapping in new batteries. There were many hardware issues...

iPhone 8 and iPhone X Will Support Fast Charging,...

One little detail Apple didn't mention at its event in Cupertino, California yesterday was the fact that the new iPhones will support fast charging. According to the official tech specs page, the new iPhones can recharge up to 50 percent of their battery life in a 30-minute charge. The catch? You have to use a USB-C charger and Lightning cable (sold separately). 9to5Mac reports: iPhone 8 battery life is roughly equivalent to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. On a full charge, expect up to 12 hours of internet usage on iPhone 8 and iPhone X, with up to 13 hours on iPhone 8 Plus. With a 50% quick charge in 30 minutes, you are effectively gaining hours of additional battery life during the day, even if you only plug in for a short period. However, to take advantage of fast-charging, you cannot use the Lightning to USB-A cable that is bundled in the box. Fast charging requires a USB-C to Lightning cable and the USB-C wall charger. More specifically, one of three USB-C wall chargers....

Welcome to the Steve Jobs Theater

Apple Park and the Steve Jobs Theater

Apple Park’s main building — the ring — is simply massive. Driving past it on the way to yesterday’s event, it was hard not to be awed.

I arrived around 8:30 for the 10:00 event, and the theater’s pavilion-style lobby and surrounding outdoor patio were already jam-packed. It truly is a beautiful structure. But it wasn’t until later in the day, as I was leaving after a few product briefings, that I got to see what it looked like empty. It’s stunning. The roof is supported only by the glass walls. There are no support columns. It seems impossible, and the effect is amazing. (They run electricity to the roof through the narrow spacers between the window panes.)

The theater and visitor center are quite a bit removed from the main building. There is a large expanse of undulating mounds of grass and trees between them. From the patio outside the theater, though, the view of...

Apple on Tuesday raised the curtain on its next-generation iPhone X, and it so far has been greeted with praise -- though tentative -- from early hands-on reviewers. For the most part, they gave the X kudos for design and build, but reserved their unequivocal endorsements until they could spend more time with the phone. A sore point with many reviewers was the mobile's price. A unit with 64 gigabytes of storage costs $999 and one with 256 GB costs $1,146. Not all reviewers were annoyed by the pricing, though.

A lawsuit (PDF) filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Oakland, California, recounts the frustrations of five plaintiffs who found that Apple's Powerbeats 2 and Powerbeats 3 headphones did not perform as advertised. They are also claiming the company is refusing to honor warranty commitments to repair or replace the failed units. The Register reports: The complaint seeks $5,000,000 in damages and class action certification, in order to represent thousands of similarly afflicted Beats customers who are alleged to exist. "In widespread advertising and marketing campaigns, Apple touts that its costly Powerbeats (which retail for $199.95) are 'BUILT TO ENDURE' and are the 'BEST HEADPHONES FOR WORKING OUT,'" the complaint says. "But these costly headphones are neither 'built to endure' nor 'sweat & water resistant,' and certainly do not have a battery that lasts for six or twelve hours. Instead, these shoddy headphones contain a design defect that causes the battery life to...

Opinion: 5.8-inch display in a smaller footprint...

When comparing Apple’s new iPhones side-by-side, the biggest difference that calls out to me is that beautiful iPhone X display. The bezel-less device fully immerses you in content, and compared to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus’ bezels, it seems otherworldly.

I don’t know why I’d go for any other iPhone. By shrinking those bezels down, the iPhone X gains a significant display size increase, while remaining smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus. Outside of price, I can’t find a reason why I wouldn’t go for the iPhone X.

In case you missed it, macOS High Sierra release...

In all of the excitement about yesterdays announcements, one product line was totally ignored -- the Mac. That's not surprising, as the company has had other events this year to highlight the Mac and macOS High Sierra. While we know that iOS 11, tvOS 11 and watchOS 4 are launching on September 19, it took a bit of searching to find out when macOS High Sierra would finally ship. That date? September 25.

The screenshot seen above was grabbed from the High Sierra page on the Apple website. Why the difference in release date? Well, my guess is that Apple's distribution servers are going to be pretty well hammered with iOS 11 updates, and this gives early adopters some time to get out and download updates for the iPhone and iPad before having to turn around and do the same for the Mac.

During and after yesterday's Apple announcement of its FaceID unlocking feature for its new iPhone X, some brief discourse began on the Ars #staff Slack channel concerning legal rights when your face is your new passcode. It's a big deal, as this is the future of smartphone unlocking—largely because Apple says so.

"This is the future of how we'll unlock our smartphones and protect our sensitive information," Apple VP Phil Schiller said.

So let's start off with one fear an Ars colleague brought up. He suggested that the cops could take your phone and hold it up to your face to unlock it. Presumably, a mugger or nefarious actor could do the same thing.

Trello gets a native Mac app

Whenever I have a somewhat complex project to keep track of, I don't reach for one of those traditional critical path method tools -- instead, I fire up Trello. It's free for individuals, and thanks to a very simple card-based user interface for tasks, it's easy for anyone to take a project and break it into workable tasks, then keep track of progress. Today Trello released a native Mac app, meaning that Mac users can avoid the browser-based version.

If you're sharing projects with another person or team, you'll now get native notifications whenever there's activity on a task card. The Trello app support the Touch Bar on MacBook Pro, and any board can be brought up on screen with a quick tap or click (on the Dock icon). 

There are shortcuts for creating new cards at any time. That's extremely helpful, as it's common for project planners to suddenly come up with a...

iOS App Store on the Mac? You don' need no...

Today's update to iTunes 12.7 on the Mac had some significant changes that could be a surprise to unsuspecting Mac users who are used to using iTunes to browse the iOS App Store, since it is now gone. That's right; if you want to browse and install iOS apps, you're going to do it from your iOS device now. This isn't much of a help to bloggers, who often need to grab links and then paste them into posts...on the Mac.

Those features are for Apple Music, where you can now "discover music with friends" through profiles, and for Podcasts -- which is where the iTunes U classes have moved.

Apple Watch Series 3: First impressions, LTE prices...

iPhone X may have been the star of yesterday’s big event, but the Apple Watch Series 3 appears to be a hit all on its own. That’s partly because you can do a lot more with Apple Watch all on its own now, and the price for adding LTE was a bit of a surprise.

Apple christened the Steve Jobs Theater on its new campus in Cupertino, California, yesterday with a slew of product announcements. While iPhones took center-stage at the event, other devices under the Apple umbrella weren't left behind. Here's everything you need to know about the newest additions to the Apple product family.

Checking out the aftermarket for Apple Watches

After two and a half years of wearing an original 42mm Space Gray Apple Watch Sport, I'm finally considering moving up to the Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular. When I upgrade an iPhone, there's always Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program to take care of the old device, and a number of places where I can get a pretty decent price if I wish to sell it outright. But what about the aftermarket for Apple Watches? Does it exist?

To start with, I looked at the "usual suspects" in the iPhone reseller market. Those companies include Gazelle, NextWorth, and BuyBackWorld, as well as a host of other buyers that have sprung up over the years. 

Gazelle doesn't even have a category for smartwatches, so I moved on to NextWorth. I found a page to get a quote on what NextWorth would pay for a used Apple Watch, filled out the online form, and hit "Get A Quote". After a few perplexing tries getting no response, I...

The new iPhones are official and today Totallee is launching iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone X cases available for shipping within 24 hours. Launched in 2013, the company based out of South Pasadena, CA has made a name for itself over the past few years for its no nonsense, super slim cases for iPhone that don’t sport gaudy logos like the competition.

If you’re sick of paying for cases with huge markups, Totallee feels your pain and that’s why the company specifically focuses on building high-quality, branding-free cases at fair prices. $19 will get you any of the company’s new iPhone 8/Plus and iPhone X cases…

The SE has proven popular among those who don’t need all the bells and whistles that come with the current slate of larger iPhones, and Apple has been quietly improving the deal for customers, most recently by providing a memory boost at no…

That Apple Watch Series 3 Data Plan? Just $10 a month

One of the big questions for people who are considering a purchase of the new Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular is "How much is a data plan for this thing going to cost me?" We now have an answer -- just $10 a month. 

That is the pricing from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, and in order to get a Watch data plan from any one of the carriers, you'll need to have an iPhone data plan on the carrier as well. Why? Well, the Apple Watch Series 3 will have the same phone number as your iPhone. The device is simply seen as an add-on to an existing iPhone contract.

Verizon has already upped the ante on deals, offering three months of free service if you sign up for an Apple Watch Series 3 Plan. Will the other carriers follow suit? Only time will tell.

You'll be able to order your Apple Watch Series 3 beginning at 12:01 AM PT this Friday, September 15 for delivery on September 22.

The five biggest questions about Apple’s new facial...

Russell Brandom, The Verge:

Because phone’s all-glass front leaves no room for a home button, Apple is ditching Touch ID in favor of a facial recognition system powered by a new camera array and a specially modified A11 chip.

Not quite sure “leaves no room for a home button” quite captures the motivation for the change. But no matter, the article goes on to ask 5 questions, with thoughts for each.

Here are the questions:

  • Will Face ID make it easier for police to unlock my phone?

  • Could my face leak or get stolen?

  • Will Face ID have a racial bias problem?

  • Can you spoof Face ID with a picture of someone else’s face?

  • Will Apple ever use Face ID for anything other than unlocking phones?

Tempting to just dismiss these questions (the first four with a no, the last with Animoji), but they are interesting topics. Lots of food for thought here.

Reader Jason Koebler writes: Last month, Greg Joswiak, Apple's VP of iOS, iPad, and iPhone Marketing, told Buzzfeed that iPhones are "the highest quality and most durable devices. We do this because it's better for the customer, for the iPhone, and for the planet."But in a class-action court case over the widespread premature failure of tens of thousands of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices, Apple argues that the company cannot guarantee any iPhone for more than a year. In a motion to dismiss, Apple argued that "to hold Apple's Limited Warranty substantively unconscionable simply because Plaintiffs expect their iPhones to last the length of their cellular service contracts 'would place a burden on [Apple] for which it did not contract.'"

While Apple reportedly struggled with most of the Hollywood studios to come to terms on pricing, it was ultimately able to ink deals with the others,…

But to no surprise, industry veterans Belkin and Mophie were prepared for yesterday’s announcement with two new wireless charging products.

Both brands will be rolling out these new accessories in Apple stores over the coming weeks as the latest iPhones begin to ship. Coincidentally, each product will be priced at $60 with varying designs.

Apple TV 4K brings back the gigabit ethernet port

Andrew O’Hara, iDownloadBlog:

Though most of the changes to the upcoming Apple TV 4K are internal, one notable change to the exterior is the addition of a gigabit ethernet port.

Good catch. Nice to be able to do a WiFi only setup, but with 4K comes 4 times the data, making a gigabit ethernet port much more important.

From a related iDownloadBlog post:

The new Apple TV 4K has brought back the speedy Gigabit Ethernet port (the previous box uses the slower 10/100 Mbps Ethernet for wired Internet), but it’s lost the handy USB-C port.

I checked the Apple TV 4K spec page, and it seems this is true. I wonder how you’ll do restores if things go south. Via Ethernet? Wifi?

Yesterday’s keynote was not without its challenges for Apple. First, thanks to our digging into the leaked code, there were few surprises.

Second, there was the fact that Apple had to kick-off with the understudy. The iPhone 8 – for all the features it borrowed from the iPhone X – looked very much like the iPhone 7, which itself looked very much like the iPhone 6. It was hard to make an iPhone 6sss seem too exciting – especially when everyone was waiting for the main act.

And then there was the failed Face ID demo. The flagship iPhone X feature falling over the first time it was demonstrated. (This was apparently because the...

Disney Is Lone Holdout From Apple's Plan to...

An anonymous reader shares a report: Apple has signed new deals to sell movies in ultra high-definition with every major Hollywood studio except the one with which it has long been closest: Walt Disney. At an event Tuesday where he announced the new Apple TV 4K, the tech giant's head of software and services, Eddy Cue, said the device will offer Hollywood movies in the high-resolution format, called either 4K or UHD, for ultra-high definition. Logos for most major studios briefly flashed on a screen behind Mr. Cue, including Time Warner's Warner Bros and Comcast's Universal Pictures. Mr. Cue said those studios' movies will be available in UHD at the same price as high-definition movies. Participating studios have agreed to a maximum price of $19.99 for 4K movies, currently the highest price for HD movies, according to a person with knowledge of the deal making. Apple had pushed studios not to raise film prices above that threshold. The one absence from Apple's list of big studios...

iPads didn't make an appearance in the new Steve Jobs Theater yesterday during Apple's event, but some models did experience a change. Apple raised prices for select iPad Pro 10.5- and 12.9-inch models by $50 yesterday, and a report by 9to5mac suggests it's due to the increased prices of NAND flash storage.

The 256GB version of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro now costs $799 and the 512GB model now costs $999. The 256GB model of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro costs $949 after the price increase, while its 512GB counterpart now costs $1,149. The prices for the 64GB base models of each iPad Pro have not changed: the 64GB 10.5-inch tablet still costs $649 while the 12.9-...

The new Apple TV Siri remote

Juli Clover, MacRumors:

Alongside the new 4K Apple TV, Apple today quietly released a new, slightly redesigned Siri Remote to go along with it. Priced at $59, the updated remote features a new more prominent Menu button with a white circle around it.

Aside from the redesign to the Menu button, the new Apple TV Siri Remote appears to be identical to the previous-generation model. At $59, the remote is $20 cheaper than the previous-generation Siri Remote.

I’ve long wished Apple would make a change to the remote to make it more obvious which end of the remote is which. In low light, it’s easy to end up with the remote pointed the wrong way, and there’s not enough of a tactile difference to be able to easily feel which end is which.

I’ve not gotten my hands on the new remote, so it is possible that this “more prominent” Menu button will solve the problem. At the very least, glad to see the price drop.
