Yesterday Patently Apple posted Apple's utility patent application that related to the second generation Apple Pencil that introduced touch surfaces and deformation feedback. It also introduced a much smarter way of charging Apple pencil using magnets sitting beneath the surface of one side of Apple Pencil that provided a flat surface. The timing of Apple's utility patent is interesting in that today the Hong Kong Patent Office granted Apple five design patents covering various parts of Apple Pencil such as the flat surface, distal tip and distal end.

'Apple is Not in Trouble Because Jony Ive is...

Apple's chief design officer announced on Thursday that he is leaving the company after nearly 30 years at the firm. John Gruber of DaringFireball making sense of things and what it means for the company: I've never been an "Apple is doomed without Steve Jobs" person. But part of what made Apple the Apple we know in the post-1997 era is that when Jobs was at the helm, all design decisions were going through someone with great taste. Not perfect taste, but great taste. But the other part of what made Jobs such a great leader is that he could recognize bad decisions, sooner rather than later, and get them fixed.

I think Tim Cook is a great CEO and Jeff Williams is a great COO. But who's in charge of product design now? There is no new chief design officer, which, really, is what Steve Jobs always was. From a product standpoint, the post-Jobs era at Apple has been the Jony Ive era, not the Tim Cook era. That's not a knock on Tim Cook. To his credit, Tim Cook has never...

While the current Mac Pro has been manufactured in Texas since it was released in 2013, The Wall Street Journal reports that the new Mac Pro unveiled earlier this month will be assembled by Quanta Computer in China.

Quanta is said to be ramping up production of the new Mac Pro at a factory near Shanghai, and given lower wages and closer proximity to other Apple suppliers in Asia, the Chinese manufacturing is expected to cost Apple less than it would to make the computer in the United States.

The move would allow Apple to avoid many of the issues its U.S. suppliers have faced in assembling the Mac Pro stateside. The...

Jony Ive’s (semi) departure from Apple opens some...

Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design officer, will depart the company as an employee later this year to form an independent design company that will count Apple among its clients. It will be a blow — in after-hours trading, Apple saw around $9 billion wiped from its market cap —  but it also opens up some new, interesting possibilities.

Ive has certainly contributed immensely to Apple as we know it today. After all, he designed, or co-designed, the original iMac, the iPod, the iPhone, the MacBook Air, the Apple Watch, the AirPods, and the HomePod. However, he also helped design the much-mocked USB Hockey Puck mouse (1998), the criticized “dustbin” Mac Pro (2013), and the controversial Mac laptops with “butterfly keyboards” (2017 to present). Even geniuses swing and miss sometimes. 

Ive will still be working with Apple on some projects.

I read the news today. Oh boy.

If you connect to Apple in any way, this news has to hit hard. The Apple blogs and Twitter feeds were filled to bursting last night when the news broke.

Personally, this feels like a friendly but still quite painful divorce or, as John Gruber put it:

My gut sense for years has been that Ive without Jobs has been like McCartney without Lennon. Or Lennon without McCartney — take whichever analogical pairing you prefer. My point here is only that the fruit of their collaborations were, seemingly magically, far greater than the sums of the duos’ talents and tastes.

This is the last vestige of a magical period at Apple, when Steve Jobs and Jony Ive changed the world, cycle after cycle.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reports that after the Apple Watch launched in 2015, Ive had already started relinquishing his responsibilities because of the strain it was putting on him personally.

Around the time, Ive told the New Yorker he'd become "deeply, deeply tired," and said the year leading up to the Apple Watch debut was "the most difficult" since he joined Apple.

To extend his time at the company, Apple subsequently agreed to...

The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR feature a Dual SIM with a nano-SIM and an eSIM. Now Apple has been granted a patent (number 10,334,427) for an “in-advance eSIM management notification.”

An eSIM is a digital SIM that allows you to activate a cellular plan from your carrier without having to use a physical nano-SIM. You can use a Dual SIM to:

  • Use one number for business and another number for personal calls.

  • Add a local data plan when you travel outside of the country or region.

  • Have separate voice and data plans.

  • Both of your phone numbers can make and receive voice calls and send and receive SMS and MMS. Your iPhone can use one cellular data network at a time.

Sir Jony Ive, Apple’s design guru since the days of the Newton MessagePad, announced that he will be leaving the company as an employee to form an independent design company, of which Apple will be a client.

While he’s not leaving altogether, his departure from Apple Park will leave an indelible mark on the company, not unlike the iPhone, iPad, and iMacs he leaves behind. Here are 10 of Jony Ive’s most daring designs.

Safeguards for using mobile cash apps

There’s nothing easier than payment with the click of a button. That is why many now use mobile payment apps like Venmo and Square. As convenient as these apps are, Apple Federal Credit Union, which has 21 branches throughout Northern Virginia, warns about the risks involved in this kind of payment and has released a list of safeguards to help consumers protect their funds.

“There is growing popularity with use of these mobile payment apps,” says Larry Larsen, Director of Cyber Security at Apple Federal Credit Union. “The trouble is, the more popular these apps are, the more criminals want to exploit them for their own profit.”

Venmo reported 40 million users at the end of April 2019, and total payment volume for Venmo grew...

In what could definitely be considered a significant step in its transition form Intel to ARM processors, Apple has hired one of ARM Holding’s Inc.’s top chip engineers.

This, in turn, could allow for Apple to create its own new hardware, including devices, new Macs, and a possible headset.

Apple has hired Mike Filippo as of May for a chip architect position, according to Filippo’s LinkedIn profile.

The next challenge, of course, could be for Apple to shed its reliance on Intel’s CPUs while maintaining compatibility with this hardware.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

Features that should be in Apple’s upcoming OS...

As we get further away from this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, the reality of Apple’s latest OS upgrades are beginning to sink in. That’s even more the case this week, as the release of Apple’s public betas for iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, and macOS arrived slightly earlier than expected.

Of course, betas, like the future, are always in motion, and there’s no guarantee that what we see now is what will end up shipping in the fall—but usually the tweaks between then and now are on the minor side, more about stability and usability than big foundational changes.

Slashdot Asks: Which iPhone Is Your Favorite?

Apple iOS developer David Smith noticed something that really jumped out at him when he was reviewing his iPhone's device analytics. "People really, really like the 4.7-inch iPhone," he writes. "When I look at the iPhone distribution for Pedometer++ the four most popular devices are all that size. Together they account for nearly 50% of all devices I see in use." The next most popular screen sizes are the 5.5-inch Plus size (19%) and the 5.8-inch X size (12%).

There are two main reasons for why this is the case: people find the 4.7-inch display to be the perfect size, whether that be for one-handed usability or pocketability, and/or the specs and features found in the 4.7-inch iPhone models still perform well to this day, prompting users to hold off on upgrading to a larger model. Whatever the case may be, the numbers show that 4.7-inch iPhones are still very popular in 2019. Are you still using an iPhone with a 4.7-inch display? Which iPhone model is your favorite?

Jony Ive Is Leaving Apple

Apple Newsroom:

Apple today announced that Sir Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design
officer, will depart the company as an employee later this year to
form an independent design company which will count Apple among
its primary clients. While he pursues personal projects, Ive in
his new company will continue to work closely and on a range of
projects with Apple.

First: Wow. There’ve been rumors for years that Ive had one foot out the door, that his last real interest at Apple was designing Apple Park, not Apple products. But it’s something else to see it. This angle that he’s still going to work with Apple as an independent design firm seems like pure spin. You’re either at Apple or you’re not. Ive is out.

The new MacBook Pro comes with two or four external ports, depending on the model you pick. And the new MacBook Air has a pair of ports. But those ports are only of one type: Thunderbolt 3, which is compatible with USB-C.

But you probably have devices that use USB-A, Thunderbolt 1, Thunderbolt 2, DisplayPort, HDMI, or something else. How do you connect these devices? With an adapter.

If you’re planning to buy a new MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, make sure you set aside a considerable amount of cash for the adapters you need. Apple doesn’t include any in the box, except for a power adapter.

Your best bet is to get a combination dock, like the Satechi Slim Aluminum Type-C Multi-Port Adapter ($60 on Amazon). It connects via USB-C, and includes a USB-C pass-through port, two USB 3.0 ports, and an HDMI port with 4K (30Hz) support. With this, you don’t have to...

One of Apple's Top-Rated Apps is a PDF Editor:...

This exceptionally powerful PDF editing toolkit makes working with PDF files fast and easy

If you’ve ever had to review important contracts or deal with legal documents, it’s highly likely you’ve had to work with PDF documents. That’s because PDFs represent original documents faithfully, utterly independent of whatever hardware, operating system, and application software used to create it. In other words, you get an accurate version of the document— regardless of the device you use. Unfortunately, that can mean they’re notoriously challenging to work with— any modification makes for an unfortunate amount of backend work and frustration if you’re trying to send out a file or contract under a tight deadline. 

The reason text might not be searchable in the PDFs you’re working with, or you can’t do more than basic editing, is because you might not have something called Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software. While “free” versions...

Google Maps adds live traffic for busses, crowdedness

On days when everything runs smoothly, taking public transit is one of the best ways to get around town. Not only is it cost-effective and efficient, but it also lets you stay hands free so you can sit back, relax and maybe even read a few chapters of your favorite book. But unexpected delays or overcrowded vehicles can quickly turn your ride from enjoyable to stressful. Starting today, Google Maps is rolling out two new features to help you better plan for your transit ride and stay more comfortable along the way.

I can certainly see how these would be useful features for those that rely on public transportation.

1-in-3 Americans think they have a 5G capable iPhone...

A new study from Decluttr, a tech buy-back site and refurbished tech seller, reveals some major misconceptions Americans have surrounding their mobile device. The biggest one? Nearly 1-in-3 Americans believe they have a 5G capable phone, when 5G isn’t widely available. 

Despite this 62% feel that their phone works better and faster because of it! Looks like the placebo effect isn’t just for medicine. The study also reveals consumers’ knowledge of the different phone models, buying trends, and shifts in brand loyalty. Here are a few takeaways:

  • Only half of those surveyed were able to correctly identify their phone from an image.

  • Just over half of iPhone XS, XS Max, and X owners are aware that their cell phone is water resistant.

Google Maps detour drops dozens of Colorado vehicles...

Photo by Connie Monsees

Want a good reason to start using Apple Maps instead of Google’s solution? Well, as if Google’s constant privacy violations weren’t enough to make you delete the Google Maps app, a recent incident in AWT’s headquarters state of Colorado might.

Last Sunday (June 23), an accident on Peña Boulevard (a freeway leading to Denver International Airport) left the thoroughfare fully blocked. Since many of the people driving on the road were on their way to catch flights, they turned to Google Maps to find out where the blockage was and how to get around it.

Google Maps promptly showed a detour onto a dirt road near the airport, and many drivers dutifully followed the detour. One problem — recent rains had turned the road into a nearly impassable mud puddle. While some drivers with all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles were able to make it through the mess, those who were in sedans were stuck — literally.

Last week, Apple launched a worldwide recall and replacement program for select 2015 15-inch MacBook Pro units, sold primarily between September 2015 and February 2017, due to batteries that "may overheat and pose a fire safety risk." Apple will replace affected batteries free of charge.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission or CPSC has since indicated that Apple has received 26 reports of batteries overheating in affected notebooks, including five reports of minor burns and one report of smoke inhalation, as well as 17 reports of minor damage to nearby personal property.

About 432,000 potentially affected MacBook Pro units were sold in the United States, plus 26,000 in Canada, according to a...

∞ Marques Brownlee reviews PowerBeats Pro, compares...

[VIDEO] If you are on the fence, deciding between PowerBeats Pro or AirPods, this is a solid review (video embedded in main Loop post).

The one thing I think Marques missed was the impact on background noise. The in-ear-canal design of the PowerBeats Pro means you’ll get much less background noise than AirPods.

On the plus side, that’s a real benefit on an airplane or in a space with a lot of ambient sound. On the down side, I find I am much more aware of my environment, better able to have conversations with people with AirPods in my ear.

Apple’s Xbox and PS4 controller support turns an...

The Verge:

Apple is bringing Xbox and PlayStation 4 controller support to the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV this fall. It’s a big change from the select MFi Bluetooth controllers that were supported before, and it means you can now easily connect any PS4 or Xbox One controller to your device to play games on the go.

Big fan of this move by Apple.

I’ve been trying out an Xbox One S controller (with Bluetooth support) on my iPad Pro running the new public beta, and I’m convinced this is a big step toward using an iPad as a portable game console.

A step, because you are still depending on the console. Read the article for all the details on playing console games on your iPad, with the controller connected via Bluetooth.

All good. But makes me wonder, will Apple ship Apple Arcade games compatible with the PS4 and Xbox One controllers? If so, I think that would help make Apple a very important player in this space. Grab your iPad and favorite controller...
