iPhone 13 rumors: Upgrades to Ultra Wide camera...

The iPhone 12 hasn’t been on the market very long, and there are already rumblings about the next iPhone. We’ll compile the most notable reports in this article, but remember to view these with a bit of skepticism. Regardless of how reliable a source is, Apple can always decide to change course for any number of reasons.

Ultra Wide camera improvements

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a built a reputation for reliable reports, says in recent research that Apple is working on improving the Ultra Wide camera for the iPhone 13 Pro  and Pro Max. According to Kuo, the upgrade is an f/1.8, six-element (6P) autofocus lens. That’s an upgrade from the current f/2.4, five-element (5P) 13mm fixed-focus lens on all of the iPhone 12 phones.

On Tuesday, November 10, Apple will be holding its “One more thing” event, where the company will be revealing some new products. Speculation is that Apple will reveal new Mac laptops that use Apple’s own processors instead of those from Intel. We could also see new headphones, and maybe AirTags.

The event will be broadcast online and is available to everyone to watch as it happens. It starts at 10 a.m. Pacific, and will probably go longer than an hour, so plan accordingly. You can add it to your calendar if you go to the Apple Events website and click “Add to your calendar”. Listed below are the different ways you can watch the presentation. And if you can’t watch it live, the full stream will be available for viewing afterward.

Here’s what I’m expecting at Apple’s ‘One More Thing...

Apple will hold its virtual “One More Thing” event at 12 pm (Pacific) Tuesday. Here’s what I’m expecting:

Apple Silicon Macs (of course)

Mountains will fall if Apple doesn’t unveil its first Apple Silicon Macs because that has about 0% chance of not happening. Of course, the question is “What type of Macs?”

I previously felt that the first Apple Silicon Mac would be a revival of the 12-inch MacBook. However, recent rumors say the line-up will include a 13-inch MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and 16-inch MacBook Pro with the same design as current models. Admittedly, this makes sense as it would keep the Mac laptop line with two models (Air and Pro) rather than three (Air, Pro, and just MacBook).

I think the 13-inch models will be available for pre-order this week and will ship within 1-2 weeks. However, my gut is telling me that the 16-inch model will be previewed, but won’t go on sale until...

Enlarge / Employees line up for row call before their shift starts at a Pegatron Corp. factory in Shanghai, China, on Friday, April 15, 2016.

Apple has reprimanded one of its largest manufacturers after a Financial Times investigation found that thousands of student interns had worked overtime to assemble iPhones, in breach of Chinese law.

After being contacted by the FT, Apple said it had stopped giving “new business” to Pegatron, its second-largest iPhone assembler after Foxconn. However, workers there said the factory was still manufacturing new products ahead of the holidays.

Crucially, the executives explained that Apple sees camera technology as a holistic union of hardware and software.

The interview reveals that Apple sees its main goal for smartphone photography as allowing users to "stay in the moment, take a great photo, and get back to what they're doing," without being distracted by the technology behind it.

McCormack explained that while professional photographers go through a process to fine-tune and edit their photos, Apple is attempting to refine that process down to the single action of capturing a frame.

Sketch, and the Joy of Mac-App Mac Apps

Sketch, two weeks ago, celebrating their 10th anniversary and the joys of truly native Mac apps:

Best of all, native Mac apps like ours are designed to fit with
the rest of the operating system. It’s hard to quantify, but if
you use Apple’s built-in apps you immediately get a “feel” for how
things should work in native apps. When an app “fits in” with the
rest of the OS, it doesn’t just look and feel more at home on your
Mac — it lowers the learning curve when you first open it. That’s
why we (and plenty of other great macOS developers) work hard to
follow the conventions set out in Apple’s Human Interface
Guidelines, so that our Mac app has that same, familiar feel. And
you can start using it instantly, from the first click.

The Northern Spy: Teaching from home

By Rick Sutcliffe

COVID has dramatically changed university teaching, and not, in the Spy's humble opinion, for the better. Oh, yes, students can still take university courses when, but for a few requiring personal skills performance, they are entirely online. But the Spy has four major concerns:

° The the lack of face-to-face interaction. Not only does the professor not have access to body language, many students keep their cameras off throughout the class time or merely display an avatar, leaving one to wonder if they turned on the Zoom session only to fall asleep, read a novel, or wander off to feed the cat rather than activate their brains to the subject at hand. OK, they receive an automatic participation mark for attendance, but when they do and say nothing for an hour, are they really there? Moreover, even those who are present are less likely to ask questions or point out mistreaks (typographical errors?) that the...

Apple suspends new business with Pegatron due to...

Bloomberg reports that Apple has suspended new business with iPhone assembler Pegatron after discovering labor violations at a student workers’ program. Pegatron is an electronics manufacturing company that develops mainly computing, communications and consumer electronics to branded vendors, including Apple.

The tech giant said it discovered several weeks ago that the Taiwanese manufacturer misclassified student workers and allowed some to work nights and overtime in violation of Apple’s Supplier Code of Conduct. Employees then “went to extraordinary lengths” to cover up the violations, according to Bloomberg. It’s since placed its partner on probation until corrective action is completed, the U.S. company said in a statement.

Pegatron has been accused sporadically over the years for...

Developers of Linux and Unix shells have received warnings from Apple that their iOS apps violate App Store Review Guidelines, with the threat of termination from the App Store said to be reversed in at least one instance.A shell is a tool that enables users to perform command-line operations on a device, which usually doesn't offer that sort of functionality, such as the lack of a terminal in iOS. These terminal emulator apps like a-Shell and iSH enable the use of many Unix commands in iOS, which can be useful for developers and power users.However, according to a series of tweets on Sunday, it seems that the two apps have come under fire from Apple's App Store team for seemingly violating the App Store Review Guidelines.

Reasons why the Apple Watch is the world’s most...

By Rooney Reeves

In terms of the smartwatch market, Apple has maintained its leading position with the Apple Watch. The maker of the iPhone accounted for more than 50% of the smartwatch industry in the world during the fourth quarter of 2018. 

Prior to Apple’s model, smartwatches had been around for some time. However, it only took a few years for the smartwatch by Apple to turn into earth’s most renowned wearable timepiece. 

Together with the staggering demand and popularity of iOS app developers, Apple shipped nearly 31 million units last year, while the whole Swiss watch market shipped a bit over 21 million. As with the iPhone which essentially reinvented the smartphone, the Apple Watch completely differs from what we had been wearing for generations. 

In the field of mobile app development, little has been...

How to use the new workout types in watchOS 7

The Workout app is one of the most popular apps on Apple Watch, and watchOS 7 brings four new workout types supported by heart rate and custom-built motion algorithms: Core Training, Dance, Functional Strength Training, and Cooldown.

To correctly capture calorie exertion for Dance, Apple Watch uses advanced sensor fusion, combining data from the heart rate sensor and inputs from the accelerometer and gyroscope, that accounts for the unique challenges of measuring different body-to-arm motions typical with dance. Apple says tis workout type was validated and tested with four of the most popular dance styles for exercise: Bollywood, cardio dance, hip-hop, and Latin.

To start a workout:

  1. Open the Workout app on your Apple Watch.

  2. Turn the Digital Crown to the workout you want to do.

Future Apple Watches may be able to adjust alarms...

Per a new Apple patent filing (number 20200345298), future Apple Watches may be able to adjust alarms based on how long it takes you to fall asleep (sleep latency).

The idea is for the smartwatch to determine when a user intends or attempts to go to sleep based on detected sleep ritual activities. Sleep ritual activities can include those activities a user performs in preparation for sleep. The mobile device can determine when the user is asleep based on detected sleep signals (e.g., biometric data, sounds, etc.). In some implementations, Apple Watch can determine recurring patterns of long or short sleep onset latency and present suggestions that might help the user sleep better or feel more rested.

Most folks require a certain amount of sleep at night to feel well rested the following day. Often, when a person works, the person will set an alarm to wake them up at an appropriate time so that they can arrive at work on time. To get...

Apple wants its ‘Apple Glasses’ to be comfortable...

Apple has been granted a patent for a “head-mounted electronic display device with lenses position sensing.” It involves making the rumored “Apple Glasses,” an augmented reality/virtual reality/mixed reality head-mounted display (HMD) more comfortable.

In the patent, Apple notes that users have faces of different shapes and sizes. This can pose challenges when a head-mounted device is to be used by multiple users. If care isn’t taken, a head-mounted device may not fit well for certain users. Apple wants its HMD to be as comfortable as possible for a variety of head sizes.

Here’s the (somewhat technical) summary of the patent: “A head-mounted device may have a display with first and second pixel arrays that display content for a user. A head-mounted support structure in the device supports the pixel arrays on the head of the user. A left positioner may be used to position a left lens module that includes a left lens and the first pixel array...

Apple’s third event of the fall promises to showcase the company’s biggest product shakeup this year. With the iPhone 12, Apple Watch Series 6, and iPad Air out of the way and on shelves, all that’s left is the Mac.

This year’s Mac event will not be like the usual fall refreshes, or even like the October 2018 event that brought a redesigned MacBook Air and souped-up Mac mini. This time, Apple is transitioning to a new Mac processor, moving away from Intel to homegrown Apple silicon. And we probably won’t see a move like this again.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has permitted marketing of a new device intended for the temporary reduction of sleep disturbance related to nightmares in adults 22 years or older who suffer from nightmare disorder or have nightmares from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

The device, dubbed Nightware, is a digital therapeutic that uses an Apple Watch and an iPhone that are configured and logged into a software application and the Nightware server. Throughout the night, Apple Watch sensors monitor body movement and heart rate during sleep. 

These data are sent to the Nightware server and, using a proprietary algorithm, the device creates a unique sleep profile for the patient. When Nightware detects that a patient is experiencing a nightmare based on its analysis of heart rate and body movement, the device provides vibrations through the Apple Watch while the product is in use....

Apple silicon Macs: A tale of two transition paths

After years of speculation over whether it would happen, and months of rumors over how it will happen, the day’s almost here. This week, Apple is prepared to launch the third processor architecture transition in the history of the Mac.

In some ways we know exactly what to expect from this transition. We’ve seen the benchmarks on iPad and iPhone chips. We know that this will mean the ability to run iOS apps on Mac hardware, and we feel confident that performance and energy efficiency will be two major coups of the Mac switching to Apple’s own chips.

"Although I've seen a couple of bots that were misconfigured, I was surprised to see Apple's Podcast bot look for updates to my podcast (Deep House Mixes) using a proxy which leaked internal IPs and hostnames from the 'Via' & 'X-Forwarded-For' headers," Coomber continued in his blog post...

Wondery is one of the largest independent podcasting studios and networks, reaching a monthly audience of more than eight million people, according to Podtrac, an industry measurement firm.

Apple’s growth in the enterprise for the past few years caught many IT experts off guard.

Apple looks for ways to make ‘Apple Glasses’ water...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 10,823,971) for “dynamic seals for adjustable display devices." It involves making the rumored “Apple Glasses,” an augmented reality/virtual reality/mixed reality head-mounted display (HMD) more comfortable. The goal is to make such a device water and dust resistant.

High-resolution display devices, such as wearable HMDs, for example, include a variety of delicate internal components (e.g., display panels and lenses) that are often highly sensitive to water, moisture, particulate, debris, dust, etc. Apple says that this means there’s a need to house such components in a sealed internal compartment. However, during use, however, it’s often necessary to adjust the position of the display panel and/or the internal lens along one or more axes to adjust focus, correct distortion, alignment, or field-of-view issues, improve content accommodation, etc. 

The seal(s) used to protect the internal components must...

HomePod mini delivery dates slipping rapidly,...

Apple has been taking so many pre-orders for the HomePod mini that it has quickly had to push back its quoted delivery dates around the world, sometimes up to two months.As good a smart speaker as it is, the original HomePod was never a huge success. However, if early orders are an indication, the new HomePod mini is a hit. Within hours of pre-orders beginning, some delivery dates worldwide have slipped by weeks.While that applies in every store that AppleInsider checked around the world, the new delivery dates vary very widely. And the Space Gray HomePod mini appears to be by far the most popular of the two color options.

I’ve got quite the HomeKit set up at this point as I have over 50 devices on my Wi-Fi network at any given time. A few weeks ago, I woke up on a Tuesday morning with motion alerts on my eufy cameras.

A14X Bionic Allegedly Benchmarked Days Before Apple...

The chip expected to be at the core of the first Apple Silicon Mac -- the "A14X" -- may have been benchmarked just days before the next Apple event. From a report: The alleged CPU benchmarks for the "A14X" show a 1.80GHz processor capable of turbo-boosting to 3.10GHz marking this the first custom Apple Silicon to ever clock above 3GHz. It is an 8-core processor with big-little arrangement. The GPU results show 8GB of RAM will be included with the processor. The single-core benchmark for the "A14X" scored 1634 vs the A12Z at 1118. The A14 scored 1,583 points for single-core tests, which is expected as single-core results shouldn't change much between the regular and "X" models. The multi-core benchmark for the "A14X" scored 7220 vs the A12Z at 4657. The A14 scored 4198 for multi-core, which means the "A14X" delivers a marked increase in performance in the sorts of environments that the GeekBench test suite focuses on. The additional RAM and graphics capabilities boost this result...
