WhatsApp Launches Instant Cryptocurrency Payments in...

WhatsApp has launched a cryptocurrency payment feature for a small number of users in the United States, thanks to Novi integration, a digital wallet owned by Facebook (now Meta).

The pilot program lets users of the encrypted messaging app send and receive money "instantly, securely, and with no fees" using the Paxos Dollar (USPD) stablecoin, whose value is linked to the US dollar.

The way the payments work in WhatsApp is similar to sending regular attachments in a conversation. Users tap the plus (+) icon and then select Payment from the menu that appears. Users who are paid this way receive USDP, which can be withdrawn to a bank account in its equivalent value in US dollars.

There's no cap on the number of times the Novi system can be used to send and receive money through WhatsApp. Regardless of frequency of use, there are no fees associated with keeping a balance in a Novi account or withdrawing it to a bank account. In addition, the inclusion of Novi in...

Mini-review: Baseus Encok WM01 Wireless Bluetooth...

If Apple’s AirPods and AirPods Pro are too expensive for your budget, give the US$24.95 Baseus Encok WM01 Wireless Bluetooth Earphones a look.

Available in black or white, they’re light and comfortable. The Bluetooth V.5 earphones provide five hours of audio (or up to 25 hours with the case). You can control music flow and access voice assistant simply by tapping on a side of the earphone.

The Encok WM01 are made of PU composite membrane and are as comfortable as Apple’s earbuds. And like then AirPods and AirPods Pro, they offer automatic pairing and connection.

That said, the Baseus’’ audio quality is good, but not nearly as good as Apple’s products. They don’t have the AirPods’ various sensors, spatial audio support, or the H1 headphone chip. And Apple’s devices have about an hour more battery life than the Encok WM01.

Oppo Says Smartphone Innovation Has 'Hit a Wall...

Chinese consumer electronics maker Oppo says that innovation in the smartphone industry has "hit a wall" and that people are asking, "What's next for smartphones?" In an answer to that question, the maker teased its first-ever foldable smartphone named "Find N."

In a press release, Oppo's chief product officer, Pete Lau, said that following "four years of intense R&D and six generations of prototypes," Oppo is ready to reveal its first foldable smartphone.

Foldable smartphones have grown in popularity over the years, with Samsung being one of the earliest adopters of the new smartphone trend. According to Lau, foldable smartphones have yet to become a mainstream hit due to many factors, including concerns over durability, software utilization, and more, and that Oppo wanted to change that.

Although a handful of other brands have already introduced foldable...

watchOS 8.3 Release Candidate Expands AssistiveTouch...

The watchOS 8.3 release candidate has expanded AssistiveTouch, allowing users to control their Apple Watch using only hand gestures, to older Apple Watch models after the feature was previously exclusive to only newer Apple Watches.

Apple first previewed the feature in May as part of its continued commitment to making its products accessible to as many people as possible. AssistiveTouch uses a combination of data from onboard Apple Watch sensors to notice subtle changes in muscle movements and tendon activity. Using gestures like a clinch or pinch, users can control their Apple Watch without touching the screen.

AssistiveTouch for watchOS enables people with upper-body limb differences to use Apple Watch without ever having to touch the display or controls. Using built-in motion sensors and on-device learning, Apple Watch detects subtle differences in muscle movements and tendon...

Apple AR Glasses to Offer an Advanced Hand Gesture...

Apple's long rumored AR headset is predicted to include multiple highly sensitive 3D sensing modules in order to offer an innovative hand gesture and object detecting user interface, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a new research note obtained by MacRumors.

We predict that the structured light of the AR/MR headset can detect not only the position change of the user or other people’s hand and object in front of the user's eyes but also the dynamic detail change of the hand (just like the iPhone's Face ID/structured light/Animoji can detect user's dynamic expression change). Capturing the details of hand movement can provide a more intuitive and vivid human-machine UI (for example, detecting the user's hand from a clenched fist to open and the balloon [image] in hand flying away).

Kuo describes the ability for the headset to detect both hand gestures and movements to provide the user with...

Appeals Court Grants Apple a Delay on Injunction...

Russell Brandom, reporting for The Verge:

An appeals court has paused one of the most consequential parts of
the Epic v. Apple ruling, placing a stay on the enforcement
of the injunction issued by the lower court. As a result of the
stay, Apple can maintain its IAP system as the sole source of
in-app payments on iOS, despite the district court’s earlier
ruling that the exclusive arrangement is illegal.

The stay, issued Wednesday afternoon, does not reverse the earlier
ruling but puts enforcement on hold until the appeals court can
fully hear the case, a process that will likely take months.

“Apple has demonstrated, at minimum, that its appeal raises
serious questions on the merits of the district court’s
determination,” the ruling reads. “...

iPhone 14 Pro Models to Feature Hole-Punch Display

The high-end iPhone 14 Pro models launching in 2022 are expected to have a hole-punch display, according to Korean website The Elec. The 6.1-inch ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro and a 6.7-inch ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro Max are expected to feature the upgraded display, which will do away with the notch used in the current iPhone models.

The hole-punch cutout will allow Apple to provide a larger display area while still leaving room for the front-facing camera, and it is a design that Android devices have used for a few years now. If Apple does transition to this design, the Face ID hardware will need to be moved under the display.

Two additional non-Pro iPhones, which will measure in at 6.1 and 6.7 inches, will continue to have a notch, with Apple limiting the hole-punch design to the more expensive...

Apple Won't Have To Make the App Store Changes...

Apple will not have to implement changes to its in-app purchase system and App Store guidelines as ordered by the judge's ruling in its court battle with Epic Games. From a report: While Apple largely won that case, as the court ruled Apple was not acting as a monopolist, the company had been ordered to stop preventing app developers from adding links that pointed users to other means of paying for their in-app purchases outside the App Store. Both Apple and Epic appealed the original ruling -- Epic because it was not successful with its larger claims, and Apple because it disagreed with this aspect of the ruling over in-app purchases. Apple originally had until Dec. 9 to update its App Store policies, but had asked the court for a stay on the injunction regarding the changes to its in-app purchasing guidelines until the appeal was decided.

The appeals court has now granted Apple more time before the injunction goes into effect. That means developers will have to continue...

Put Your macOS Shortcut Where It’s Easy to Launch

One of the most useful features added to macOS Monterey is probably the Shortcuts app. Like its counterpart in iOS, this app is a quick way to get one or more tasks done with a single click. The one drawback to Shortcuts on macOS is that it may not seem easy to access your shortcuts once you’ve created them. In fact, you can easily place your Shortcuts on the menu bar or in the services menu in Finder. Let’s look at how to do that.

Creating Your First Shortcut on macOS

To get started, you’ll need to launch the Shortcuts app. You can find it in Applications, or just open Spotlight and type “shortcuts”. You’ll find a gallery of starter shortcuts, along with any that you’ve already created on iOS....

Apple on Tuesday seeded the macOS Monterey 12.1 Release Candidate to developers for testing, and according to the release notes, the update resolves an issue with the notch obscuring "menu bar extras" on the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro.

"Menu bar extras" are the tiny icons that appear on the right side of the menu bar, providing users with convenient access to app-specific controls. These icons could become overlapped by the notch on the new MacBook Pro models, causing the icons to be hidden or only partially visible, but Apple said this bug has been fixed in macOS 12.1.

As for top-level menus like File, Edit, and View on the left side of the menu bar, developers can update their Mac apps to play friendly with the notch. As a last resort for apps that have not yet been...

FAA Will Restrict Low-Visibility Landings Near 5G...

Even though AT&T and Verizon have agreed to limit transmission power on their C-Band 5G transmitters, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is still worried. The agency is so concerned it is restricting low-visibility landings at airports near the 5G towers.

Concerns Regarding 5G Towers Interfering with Radio Altimeters

In poor visibility, pilots often rely on radio altimeters to tell them how high in the air they are flying. FAA officials worry that the increase in 5G mid-band radio traffic could interfere with that equipment. The frequencies used for these 5G towers aren’t the same as radio altimeters, but regulators still worry about interference. Therefore, the FAA issued a ruling Tuesday regarding landings near the 5G expansion areas. The ruling prohibits thousands of US airplanes and helicopters from using guided and...

Twitter’s Project Guardian

Project Guardian focuses on a list of thousands of accounts that are mostly likely to be attacked or targeted. They include politicians, musicians, journalists, and professional athletes. Reports of abuse or harassment from these accounts are prioritized by Twitter’s content moderation system.

This VIP group, which most members don’t even know they’re a part of, is intended to remove abusive content that could have the most reach and is most liable to spread on the social-media site. It also helps protect the Twitter experience of those prominent users, making them more likely to keep tweeting—and perhaps less apt to complain about...

Send Apple Gift Card to Friends and Family Abroad

Whatever the circumstance, it isn’t always easy to send gifts to friends and family abroad. One obvious solution for the international Apple fan in your life is a gift card. However, doing this is not as simple as it may seem.

Sending an Apple Gift Card to Someone Living Abroad

The first, most important point is this – when sending any kind of Apple gift card to someone in a different country, you must purchase it from the Apple online store of the country in which THEY live. For example, if one of my colleagues living in the U.S. wishes to purchase one for me living in the UK, they must buy it from the UK Apple online store. Not only is an Apple gift card only valid in the country in which it is purchased, doing this means it will be sent to the recipient in the right currency.

When you get to the Apple online store in the...

In an internal memo this week, obtained by MacRumors, Apple said customers who had an iPhone or Mac repaired at an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider are now eligible to purchase AppleCare+ for the device, so long as the device was purchased less than one year ago and passes a physical inspection and diagnostics after repair.

For customers who are unsure if their iPhone was repaired by an Apple Authorized Service Provider, iOS 15.2 introduces a new "Parts and Service History" in Settings > General > About that indicates if components like the battery and display are genuine Apple parts.

UK to Shut Down 2G and 3G Networks by 2033

The United Kingdom will phase out and turn off its 2G and 3G networks by 2033, the British government today announced (via TechRadar).

BT already committed to ending its 3G service by 2023, but now all major carriers in the UK are in agreement to retire 2G and 3G over the next decade. The networks are due to be switched off as part of plans to accelerate the roll out of 5G across the country. The UK government added that the move also paves the way for future 6G services.

While the number of people reliant on 2G and 3G networks is relatively low, retiring them will allow operators to reclaim spectrum to be used in 4G and 5G networks, as well as save money being spent on powering and maintaining inefficient legacy equipment. 2G may remain in use for longer than 3G because it...

Apple Reaches Quiet Truce Over iPhone Privacy Changes

Apple has allowed app developers to collect data from its 1 billion iPhone users for targeted advertising, in an unacknowledged shift that lets companies follow a much looser interpretation of its controversial privacy policy. Financial Times: In May Apple communicated its privacy changes to the wider public, launching an advert that featured a harassed man whose daily activities were closely monitored by an ever-growing group of strangers. When his iPhone prompted him to "Ask App Not to Track," he clicked it and they vanished. Apple's message to potential customers was clear -- if you choose an iPhone, you are choosing privacy.

But seven months later, companies including Snap and Facebook have been allowed to keep sharing user-level signals from iPhones, as long as that data is anonymised and aggregated rather than tied to specific user profiles. For instance Snap has told investors that it plans to share data from its 306m users -- including those who ask Snap "not to...

That change had been ordered by Yvonne Gonzales Rogers, a federal judge in Oakland, earlier this year in the Apple vs. Epic Games battle and was scheduled to come into effect on Thursday.

“Apple has demonstrated, at minimum, that its appeal raises serious questions on the merits of the district court’s determination that Epic Games, Inc. failed to show Apple’s conduct violated any antitrust laws but did show that the same conduct violated California’s Unfair Competition Law,” the court ruled in an order reviewed by CNBC. Wednesday’s stay temporarily protects Apple’s control over its App Store and the fees it generates.

Does Apple Have Too Much Control Over Your iPhone?

Recode is working on a series that examines Big Tech and antitrust. Sara Morrison covers Apple in the first installment, asking “How much control should Apple have over your iPhone?” One paragraph in particular grabbed my attention:

In her book Monopolies Suck, antitrust expert Sally Hubbard described Apple as a “warm and fuzzy monopolist” when compared to Facebook, Google, and Amazon, the other three companies in the so-called Big Four that have been accused of being too big. It doesn’t quite have the negative public perception that its three peers have, and the effects of its exclusive control over mobile apps on its consumers aren’t as obvious.

Report: iOS Users Who Opt-Out of App Tracking...

"Loose" interpretations of Apple's privacy policies allow apps such as Facebook and Snapchat to continue tracking users for targeted advertising even when they have asked to not be tracked, The Financial Times reports.

In May, Apple launched its App Tracking Transparency feature that allows users to opt-out of being tracked across apps and websites for advertising purposes. Seven months after Apple introduced the feature, companies such as Snapchat and Facebook have purportedly been allowed to continue sharing user-level signals from iPhones, providing that data is anonymized and aggregated rather than directly linked to specific user profiles.

After the boom in adoption and spending for both mobile games and non-game apps in 2020, market trends began normalizing in 2021 as worldwide consumer spending is projected to reach approximately US$133 billion on in-app purchases, premium apps, and subscriptions across the App Store and Google Play, according to Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data. 

This represents 19.7% year-over-year growth from $111.1 billion in 2020, nearly mirroring the 21% Y/Y growth consumer spending experienced in 2019.

Globally, consumer spending on the App Store will reach $85.1 billion, up 17.7% Y/Y from $72.3 billion in 2020. Although users have spent less on Google Play, that platform will see more Y/Y growth, climbing 23.5% to $47.9 billion from $38.8 billion.

In a note to clients, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple is planning new iPhone SE models for 2022 and 2023 and second generation AirPO Pros for late 2022.

The iPhone SE

Regarding the former, he says: We expect Apple to release a new iPhone SE in 2023 with a larger display than the 1H22 [first half of 2022] SE’s 4.7-inch and 4GB of memory support (vs. 3GB in the 1H22 SE). We predict that Luxshare-ICT will be the NPI supplier for the 2023 iPhone SE.

An October rumor from display analyst Ross Young suggested that Apple will call its follow-up  to the iPhone SE the “‌iPhone SE‌ Plus” even though it’s not going to be getting a bigger display.

He said the next version of the smartphone will feature the same 4.7-inch LCD display that’s in the current version. This lines up with previous reports. And, according to Nikkei Asia, the next gen iPhone...
