There has been a lot of talk about Apple investing in original podcast content.

Apple considers ways to provide more haptic feedback...

Apple is looking into methods for providing more haptic feedback on iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches. The company has been granted a patent (number 10,503,258) for an “input mechanism with force and rotation inputs and haptic feedback.”

In the patent data, Apple notes that touch screens are becoming increasingly popular as an input method for an electronic device because of their ease and versatility of operation, as well as their declining price. 

However, in addition to touch panels/touch screens, many electronic devices may also have mechanical inputs, such as buttons, switches, and/or knobs. These mechanical inputs can control power (i.e., on/off) and volume for the electronic devices, among other functions. Apple says that, however, sometimes these mechanical inputs also fail to give a user tactile feedback, such as the "click-click-click" feeling of winding a mechanical alarm clock with a knob or a mechanical watch crown.  The company...

A bug in iOS 13.3 allows children to easily circumvent the restrictions their parents or guardians set with the Communications Limit feature in Screen Time. Apple has said it plans to fix the problem in a future software update.

The iOS 13.3 update released earlier this week added the ability for parents to whitelist contacts for their kids to communicate with. Kids need the parents to input a passcode to talk to anyone not on the list, with an exception made for emergency services like 911. It was the flagship feature of the update.

When Apple introduced Face ID with iPhone X using their new TrueDepth Camera, they instantly leapfrogged their smartphone competitors that were relying on 2D facial recognition as the biometric standard. Only larger bulkier systems like RealSense or Xbox's Kinect were using 3D depth methods. Apple was able to shrink the technology to actually fit a smartphone. Now Microsoft seems to be preparing to match Apple's Face ID security feature with a next-gen 3D depth camera.

How Social Media Warps Democracy

Here’s a long read to put on your list as you head into the weekend. It examines social media and its impact on democracy and our psyche.

The problem may not be connectivity itself but rather the way social media turns so much communication into a public performance. We often think of communication as a two-way street. Intimacy builds as partners take turns, laugh at each other’s jokes, and make reciprocal disclosures. What happens, though, when grandstands are erected along both sides of that street and then filled with friends, acquaintances, rivals, and strangers, all passing judgment and offering commentary?

Cellebrite Now Uses iOS Exploit Checkm8

Checkm8 is an iPhone flaw in the bootrom that can lead to a jailbreak. It can’t be patched via software, and it affects the iPhone 4s through iPhone X. But attackers need physical access to your device, and the jailbreak can only be tethered, meaning that if the iPhone is restarted it disappears.

The Cellebrite UFED team is working quickly to provide users with support for the above-mentioned scenario.  This will be included with the launch of our iOS extraction agent in an upcoming release. The team is committed to providing a comprehensive, forensically-sound solution that adheres to Cellebrite’s high standards, is fully tested, and is admissible in court.

Speaking about recent rumors, if Apple did remove the Lightning port from future iPhones, I wonder if it would defeat companies like Cellebrite. I’m not sure if they could still extract data via the wireless charger.

Genetic testing is expected to help employees uncover health problems that could turn into risks later in time, allowing patients to take preventative steps. Color's test is able to look for gene mutations associated with cancer and cardiovascular disease.

The test created by Color is not sold directly to consumers and is instead ordered by clinicians at AC Wellness, with a follow up appointment required to discuss the health results.

Fortunately, video editor Thomas Grove Carter has since demonstrated that the iMac Pro can in fact drive the Pro Display XDR, but only at a 5K resolution. This is likely because the iMac Pro uses Intel's older "Alpine Ridge" Thunderbolt 3 controller without enough bandwidth to drive a 6K display.

As the use of mobile devices continues to expand, it is imperative that innovative security techniques, such as advanced encryption algorithms, are constantly maintained and improved to protect DoD information and resources.

AT&T has PDF maps of coverage areas within these cities in its press release, and the carrier is aiming for nationwide 5G coverage in the first half of next year.

For the time being, customers with the new Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G will be able to access AT&T's 5G network, with more devices coming in the future. Apple is expected to launch its first 5G iPhones next year, likely in its usual September timeframe.

Why Apple’s HomeKit Secure Video is a big deal for...

Mike Goril, Gadget Hacks:

In iOS 13, Apple added an important new feature to its HomeKit smart home ecosystem called HomeKit Secure Video. With it, you have a secure, private way to store and access recordings from your smart home IoT cameras.

And:

Now that we have HomeKit Secure Video, supported cameras can offer private and encrypted videos available in the cloud, viewable right from the Home app on your iPhone. You will also get object detection, with all analysis of videos performed locally on a HomeKit hub such as an iPad, and activity notifications — all without uploading any video to someone’s server.

And:

If you would like to store recordings in the cloud, you’ll also need an iCloud storage plan. The 200 GB plan is needed to store recordings from one camera, and the 2 TB plan will support up to five cameras. Recordings don’t count against your storage allotment and are saved for ten days. If you just want to stream the video, however, no...

Apple with Michelle Obama and Ellen DeGeneres...

Michelle Obama, Ellen DeGeneres, and Apple have teamed up together this holiday season and gave away iPads and Macs to students and teachers at the Randle Highlands Elementary School.

The Cupertino-based company’s donation includes donating MacBook Airs for teachers, iMacs for use at the school, an iPad given to each student, a new basketball court and a $100,000 cash donation.

The D.C.-based Randle Highlands Elementary School was chosen because it’s one of the schools with the highest percentage of students that come from low-income families. Tim Cook, Apple CEO mentions that all children deserve a chance to build something that may change the world.

The donation was shown in the Ellen DeGeneres show and a part of a segment called ‘Greatest Night of Giveaways’. The program will continue for several more days in the NBC network. Michelle Obama, former first lady said she had fun making the children at the Randle Highlands school happy with the iPad donation....

Mark Gurman, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. avoided 15% tariffs on its most important products, the iPhone, iPad and MacBooks, after U.S. President Donald Trump signed off on a trade deal with China.

The new import duties were due to kick in Dec. 15 and could have added about $150 to the price of iPhones during the crucial holiday shopping season, according to Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives.

Can’t help but think the $150 per iPhone dump of cold water on Apple’s holiday sales were the primary driver for this deal with China.

Apple Watch has overtaken “peak iPod”, AirPods about...

Start off by following the headline link, check out the graph at the top of the article, showing quarterly iPod and wearable revenues. In 2007, Q4, iPod revenue hit a historic high of about $4 billion. Now read on.

Horace Dediu, Asymco:

My [Apple] Watch revenue estimate was $4.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2018. This conclusion was confirmed by statements from the Company.

And:

Looking forward to the next quarter, I am expecting a 51% increase y/y for Wearables and 24% growth in Watch. This results in a Watch revenues about $5.2 billion and non-Watch $5.7 billion. Now if we assume $1.7 billion for non-Watch-non-AirPods (i.e. Apple TV, HomePod, Beats, iPod, other) then this quarter AirPods will have overtaken peak iPod.

Apple Watch and AirPods have both reached historic levels for Apple. I suspect AirPods will be the new benchmark to which all future products will be compared.

Patent trollin’: Apple sued over a Messages feature

Another day, another lawsuit. As noted by AppleInsider, Hypertext Technologies, a non-practicing entity, is suing Apple for, of course, patent violations.

The patent troll claims Apple its patents in regard to Messages support for SMS embedded links. Filed with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Hypertext's complaint against Apple hinges on U.S. Patent No. 7,113,801 for a "Method for receiving data using SMS and wireless internet and system thereof."

A “patent troll” is an individual or an organization that purchases and holds patents for unscrupulous purposes such as stifling competition or launching patent infringement suits. In legal terms, a patent troll is a type of non-practicing entity: someone who holds a patent but is not involved in the design or manufacture of any product or...

Apple has avoided 15% tariffs on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac laptops after President Donald Trump signed off on a trade deal with China, reports Bloomberg. The import duties were to start Dec. 15 and could have added around $150 t the price of Apple products.

Apple currently pays tariffs on the Apple Watch, AirPods, iMac components, and HomePod speaker. It's possible these could be eliminated under the new U.S.-China deal.

Trump signed off on a "phase-one" deal that roughly halves current tariff rates and scraps a threatened $160 billion worth of duties on Chinese-made goods including phones and computers, reports The Wall Street Journal.

Broadband Companies Want FCC to Hide Data on...

Internet providers have successfully persuaded the FCC to remove unfavorable data that shows their advertised speeds are typically higher than their actual speeds.

Internet experts and former FCC officials said the setup gives the internet companies enormous leverage. “How can you go to the party who controls the information and say, ‘please give me information that may implicate you?’ ” said Tom Wheeler, a former FCC chairman who stepped down in January 2017.

Jim Warner, a retired network engineer who has helped advise the agency on the test for years, told the FCC in 2015 that the rules for providers were too lax. “It’s not much of a code of conduct,” Mr. Warner said.

So it seems these companies regularly lie about their internet speeds. Shocking, I know.

Activate Siri. I do this on my iPhone by simply saying, “Hey, Siri.”

Say something like "Set a timer for 30 minutes."

Siri will confirm that the timer was created and started.

Open the Clock app and click on the Timer icon if you want to watch the countdown.

Even with the timer set, you can continue to use your iPhone as usual.

Likewise, Apple and Samsung smart watch owners are more likely to engage in a variety of news/entertainment activities, including weather and music applications.

However, while Apple and Fitbit share the lead among consumers ages 18-24, Fitbit has a wide lead among older consumers, commanding 68% of wearables owners 55-64 and 60% of wearables owners 65 and older, according to Parks Associates.

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20190377410) — one of several — involving eye-tracking features for the rumored “Apple Glasses,” a head-mounted artificial reality/virtual reality headset. 

It would allow such a device to track multiple users simultaneously, something Apple says most current head mounted displays (HDMs) can’t do.

Here’s Apple's summary of the invention: “The invention relates to a method for operating an eye tracking device for multi user eye tracking, wherein images of a predefined capturing area of the eye tracking device are captured by means of an imaging device of the eye tracking device and the captured images are processed by means of a processing unit of the eye tracking device.
