iOS 11's Misleading 'Off-ish' Setting...

Last month, we covered a story about how turning off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth in iOS 11's Control Center doesn't really turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. EFF has called the situation bad for user security. From the report: Instead, what actually happens in iOS 11 when you toggle your quick settings to "off" is that the phone will disconnect from Wi-Fi networks and some devices, but remain on for Apple services. Location Services is still enabled, Apple devices (like Apple Watch and Pencil) stay connected, and services such as Handoff and Instant Hotspot stay on. Apple's UI fails to even attempt to communicate these exceptions to its users. It gets even worse. When you toggle these settings in the Control Center to what is best described as "off-ish," they don't stay that way. The Wi-Fi will turn back full-on if you drive or walk to a new location. And both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will turn back on at 5:00 AM. This is not clearly explained to users, nor left to them to choose, which makes...

Apple is probing reports of swollen iPhone 8...

You might have seen a tweet or Facebook post over the past week with a pic of someone’s swollen iPhone 8 case. A handful of such claims have surfaced since the phone started shipping on Sept. 22, and as expected, they’re making headlines all across the web. But there’s no reason to worry yet.

Bulging batteries are caused by a buildup of gases inside the cell. It generally affects older batteries that are reaching the end of their lifespan, but while it’s rare, it’s not completely uncommon for it to affect new batteries as well. In fact, if you search for “iPhone 7 battery swelling,” you’ll find numerous cases of Apple...

Apple has announced that Katherine Adams will be joining Apple as General Counsel and Senior Vice President of Legal and Global Security, as current General Counsel Bruce Sewell will be retiring by the end of the year. 

Adams will report directly to CEO Tim Cook. She comes from being the senior vice president and general counsel at Honeywell since 2003, and was a partner at New York law firm Sidley Austin LLP prior to that time.

In the announcement, CEO Tim Cook was quoted as saying:

KGI: iPhone 8 Plus sales better than expected,...

KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has looked at data available since the release of the iPhone 8 models last month and says that sales of the iPhone 8 Plus have been "better than expected". But the analyst said that the expected "super cycle" of high iPhone sales will be delayed into 2018 due to production issues surrounding the iPhone X that's expected early next month.

The biggest issue that will keep supplies of the iPhone X constrained in 2017 is low production yield for the front-facing True Depth camera that is used for the groundbreaking Face ID technology in the new phone. However, Kuo sees the production issues easing after the end of the year, with an expected boom in sales as production ramps up.

Kuo's estimates show 210 to 220 million iPhones being sold in 2017, with the "super cycle" in 2018 seeing sales in the range of 245 to 255 million units. Once the iPhone X is on the market, Kuo expects demand for the current iPhone 8 line to drop. Kuo also believes that the...

Hedgehogs, Wizards, and "hundreds" of...

Next week's release of iOS 11.1 beta to developers and public testers has one fun change in store: literally hundreds of new emoji. Apple revealed some of the upcoming characters today, which are Apple's take on the approved Unicode 10 standard.

In addition to the traditional smilies seen above (in a variety of skin tones), there are new animals and creatures. The smiling hedgehog (see below) is an instant winner, and the dinosaur is sure to be popular with kids.

Finally, Tolkien and "Dungeons and Dragons" fans will have wizards available for emoting, while mermaids are sure to be popular at the seashore and near swimming pools.

Expect to see new food, new clothing options, and the ever-popular zombies coming to your emoji keyboard. In addition, there will be an ASL gesture emoji for the phrase "I love you", and even someone in the lotus position.

Opinion: It’s time for Apple to start offering...

Music has been part of Apple’s soul since the launch of the iPod almost 16 years ago. Launched with the slogan ‘a thousand songs in your pocket,’ it’s no exaggeration to say that the device transformed the way we listen to music. It also transformed Apple into a major mobile device manufacturer, and laid the ground work for the iPhone.

Fast-forward to today, and Apple still places a huge emphasis on music. Its largest ever acquisition was the $3B it paid to buy Beats in 2014. The Beats Music service became Apple Music, a streaming service which has grown to 30M paid subscribers.

Apple

Apple released iOS 11 barely a month ago, but emoji lovers are eagerly awaiting its first major update. Apple revealed a bunch of new emoji that will come to iOS devices with the release of iOS 11.1. The new characters are adaptations from Unicode 10, which added 56 new emoji.

A quick look into Apple's new emojis shows a triad of new "genderless" emoji with various skin colors and age differences. The release also brings a group of new clothing emoji, which include a hat, scarf, gloves, and trench coat.

∞ Coming to Apple Music: Bang! The Bert Berns Story

[VIDEO] This looks to be a well crafted love letter to an unsung hero of the music industry. This could be a sweet spot for Apple Music, something I’d normally associate with HBO. A bit of a niche documentary, but foundational, something that adds value to my Apple Music subscription, something I can’t get on Spotify.

The film was produced by Bert Berns’ son and premiered at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival to great acclaim. Here’s a review.

China: Another iPhone 8 swollen battery, case opening

Reuters:

On its website on Thursday, China’s state-backed ThePaper.cn cited an iPhone buyer surnamed Liu as saying his newly purchased iPhone 8 Plus arrived cracked open on Oct. 5. There was no sign of scorching or an explosion.

Liu told ThePaper he bought the handset through online marketplace of JD.com Inc. He said he did not charge the new device and returned it to the seller.

Pictures taken by Liu and displayed on ThePaper’s website showed an iPhone 8 plus split open along the side featuring the sim card holding, with the phone’s internal parts visible.

Puzzling. Just enough cases to make this more than a one-off, but does not appear to be widespread. Should be easy enough to tell if this is an issue with a specific part of the supply chain.

Apple reveals new emoji for iPhone and iPad

Apple press release:

Hundreds of new emoji, including more emotive smiley faces, gender-neutral characters, clothing options, food types, animals, mythical creatures and more, are coming to iPhone and iPad with iOS 11.1.

The new emoji are gorgeous. To me, they harken back to the days of skeuomorphism. Jarring to see the shiny, shadowed, 3D emoji next to the intentionally flat iOS interface. Which way are we going?

No matter, head over to the Apple press release, check out the emoji for yourself. A vampire!

Researchers: Uber’s iOS app had secret permissions...

Kate Conger, Gizmodo:

To improve functionality between Uber’s app and the Apple Watch, Apple allowed Uber to use a powerful tool that could record a user’s iPhone screen, even if Uber’s app was only running in the background, security researchers told Gizmodo. After the researchers discovered the tool, Uber said it is no longer in use and will be removed from the app.

My head is spinning. How was this allowed to happen in the first place and how was the tool not monitored, removal tracked and forced by Apple?

More:

The entitlement isn’t common and would require Apple’s explicit permission to use, the researchers explained. Will Strafach, a security researcher and CEO of Sudo Security Group, said he couldn’t find any other apps with the entitlement live on the App Store.

I’d love an official comment by Apple on this. Was this a one time thing? Is this common practice?

EFF: iOS 11’s misleading “off-ish” Bluetooth, Wi-Fi...

Electronic Frontier Foundation blog:

Turning off your Bluetooth and Wi-Fi radios when you’re not using them is good security practice (not to mention good for your battery usage). When you consider Bluetooth’s known vulnerabilities, it’s especially important to make sure your Bluetooth and Wi-Fi settings are doing what you want them to. The iPhone’s newest operating system, however, makes it harder for users to control these settings.

We’ve discussed the Control Center controls and icons in this Loop post.

In a nutshell, when you tap the WiFi or Bluetooth icons in Control Center, you’ll drop/restore the current connection, but without turning off the respective radio. And that’s the EFF’s complaint.

Instead, what actually happens in iOS 11 when you toggle your quick settings to “off” is that the...

From a report: After the researchers discovered the tool, Uber said it is no longer in use and will be removed from the app. The screen recording capability comes from what's called an "entitlement" -- a bit of code that app developers can use for anything from setting up push notifications to interacting with Apple systems like iCloud or Apple Pay. This particular entitlement, however, was intended to improve memory management for the Apple Watch. The entitlement isn't common and would require Apple's explicit permission to use, the researchers explained.

Mariano added a new encrypted APFS volume to a container, set a password and hint, and unmounted and remounted the container in order to force a password prompt for demonstration purposes. Then, he clicked the "Show Hint" button, which revealed the full password in plain text rather than the hint.

Earlier this morning we posted an article about a flaw in macOS High Sierra that exposed passwords for APFS encrypted containers; now a supplemental update has been released to fix that issue and it's available in the Mac App Store. In addition to two security fixes, the Supplemental Update also "improves installer robustness", "fixes a cursor graphic bug when using Adobe InDesign", and "resolves an issue where email messages couldn't be deleted from Yahoo accounts in Mail".

The update actually fixes another security issue as well, as noted in the text following from Apple:

StorageKit

Available for: macOS High Sierra 10.13

Impact: A local attacker may gain access to an encrypted APFS volume

Description: If a hint was set in Disk Utility when creating an APFS encrypted...

Apple on Thursday issued a supplemental update for its macOS High Sierra operating system, squashing a password hint bug in Disk Utility, a few more minor bugs and improving the update's installer. The changes were so minor, it didn't even warrant a point-zero-one distinction.

macOS High Sierra flaw exposes passwords of...

Sometimes it's amazing what makes it through countless beta versions of operating systems to the final product. In the case of macOS 10.13 High Sierra, developer Matheus Mariano discovered a surprisingly bad vulnerability that displays the password of an encrypted APFS container.

In the following video, Mariano shows how the vulnerability works -- you create a new Encrypted APFS container in Disk Utility on a Mac with an SSD, and fill in and verify the password, along with a password hint. After unmounting and re-mounting the container, the password dialog displays the actual password in the "Hint" field. Whoops!

Mariano notes that he has already (as of September 27) reported this to Apple. It's quite likely that macOS 10.13.1 will be heading our way soon with a fix.

Microsoft Edge browser comes to iOS today

It may come as a shock to those who live and work solely in the Apple ecosystem, but it's a fact that there are more people who use their iOS devices with a Windows 10 PC than with Macs. The maker of Windows, Microsoft, today brought a preview version of its Microsoft Edge browser to iOS.

While Mac users have long enjoyed the ability to share documents easily with iOS (and vice-versa) through Handoff, there's no similar feature for Windows users. The idea behind Edge for iOS is to let Windows users who are working on something on iPhone or iPad continue their work on a Windows 10 machine. 

The browser will also be available for Android in the near future. The company expects to add features to Edge as user feedback to the initial release is gathered and analyzed, but at present the app provides websites favorites and reading list sync, with eBook/ePub support and password sync coming soon. The browser can be used to sign into your Microsoft account, there's an...

Tim Cook tweets remembrance of Steve Jobs

October 5, 2011 was a sad day for those of us who follow the world of Apple. On that day, Apple co-founder and icon Steve Jobs passed away after a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer. Today, Apple CEO Tim Cook remembered that with a heartfelt tweet complete with a photo of a much younger Jobs:

Remembering Steve today. Still with us, still inspiring us. “Make something wonderful, and put it out there.” pic.twitter.com/7aOCPkwU0U

— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) October 5, 2017

And, as one would expect from the trash heap that is Twitter, many of the responses were of the variety of "Too bad you've screwed up everything he built lol", "Quality has gone downhill, especially in iOS. Lack of attention to detail now", "Steve created a revolution, you created nothing at all", and so on. 

Fortunately, there were also a...

Every noise at once

Pop on some headphones and take some time to explore. This is pretty much every musical genre I’ve ever encountered.

For most (but not all) genres, a click on the name will play a short snippet example. Click on the arrow to the right of the name and you’ll go to that genre’s page, with a pretty significant listing of artists in that space.

Click on an artist, you’ll hear a snippet. Click on the arrow to the right of the artist, you’ll go to that artist’s Spotify page.

I absolutely loved playing with this. Was thinking, I wish Apple Music offered me a system like this for music discovery. I know there are apps that do this, but none has access to my “For You” data. I’d love to spend some time in a tree like this, personalizing and improving my “For You” model so Apple Music actually has a true sense of what I like.

Google puts clock on free Photos storage

Ryan Whitwam, Android Police, quoting the Pixel 2 product page fine print on the Google Store:

Free, unlimited original-quality storage for photos and videos taken with Pixel through the end of 2020, and free, unlimited high-quality storage for photos taken with Pixel afterwards.

There’s been a lot of discussion about exactly what this means. At the very least, if you want to keep taking uncompressed, original-quality pictures past the cutoff date at the end of 2020, you’ll need to start paying for storage. What is unclear is what that means for all the original-quality photos you’ve already placed on the Google Photos servers. Will they continue to be stored for free? Will you have to pay for those, too?

To be clear, I have no issue paying for the storage. Apple, after all, charges for iCloud storage already. Just looking for clarification.

Someone at Google know the details? Please ...

The European Commission on Wednesday stepped up its campaign to force big American technology companies to pay more taxes on Wednesday. It ruled that Luxembourg had violated EU rules by allowing the bulk of Amazon's European profits to go untaxed, and it announced it was taking Ireland to court for failing to collect higher taxes from Apple, after Ireland ignored a similar ruling from the EC last year. If the EC wins the battle, Apple could owe €13 billion ($15 billion), while Amazon could owe an extra €250 million ($290 million).

The EU's competition commissioner, Margrethe Vestager, says that she's just trying to...

Details on the iPhone X notch interface

A detailed post from Max Rudberg, lots of pictures, makes me feel more comfortable with the notch itself and how it might look in different situations.

A few highlights:

Regardless of your feelings for the notch, the reality is that to do a near edge-to-edge screen on a phone in 2017; you need to make place for sensors and speaker. The technology to hide them behind the screen simply is not here. We’ve seen different manufacturers choose different solutions to the problem. This is the one Apple chose, so let’s work with what we got.

That last bit is exactly right. These are the cards we’ve been dealt. Let’s work with that.

The familiar 20 pt tall status bar, the same height it’s been since the first iPhone, is now 44 pt tall on iPhone X.

That’s more than twice the height but, of course, it’s now split in two. Not our space to play with, so no reason for developers to worry through what will fit in the so-called horns.

Apple releases watchOS 4.0.1 update, works to...

Apple’s watchOS 4.0.1 update is out and it works to improve the reliability of LTE cellular connections without an iPhone nearby.

Apple Watch owners can now download watchOS 4.0.1 via the official Watch app on a paired iPhone. Release notes accompanying the software say that it addresses the Wi-Fi bug that could prevent LTE connectivity when near a public hotspot.

Given that LTE connectivity provides a significant drain on battery life, the Apple Watch tends to opt to use Wi-Fi networks when possible. Prior to the watchOS 4.0.1 update, the Apple Watch failed to identify public Wi-Fi networks with portals, which cannot be accessed without accepting terms and conditions. Without a browser or full-fledged iOS operating system, watchOS is unable to connect to such networks.

With the release of watchOS 4.0, the Apple Watch would still attempt to connect to the public Wi-Fi networks rather than reverting to LTE. This left some users unable to access date on the go...

Apple acquires/hires Init.ai staff to help guide new...

Apple has apparently acquired/hired the staff of Init.ai, a small, six person startup known for its customer service automation software.

Init.ai’s product is described as the following:

…a smart assistant for customer representatives to parse and get better insights from their interactions with users, as well as automate some of the interactions…

It’s been stated that there was no intellectual property included in the deal, but was instead about bringing the Init.ai team to Apple to work on Siri.

Back at WWDC this past summer, Apple announced a new feature for iOS 11 called Business Chat.

The Business Chat feature is thought to be Apple’s way of competing with Facebook and Twitter by making it more efficient for customers to communicate with brands. Apple is said to be working to incorporate this integration into Siri, Spotlight, Safari, and Maps will help it attract users.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available....
