AirPods Assembler Luxshare Acquiring iPhone Assembly...

Apple supplier Luxshare Precision has reached an agreement with fellow manufacturing company Wistron to purchase one of its iPhone assembly plants in the Chinese city of Kushan, according to the Nikkei Asian Review.

Earlier this year, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned the possibility of Luxshare pushing into the iPhone assembly business, starting with older models. Luxshare first entered the Apple supply chain in 2013, making cables and connectors for the company, and it has since become involved with assembly of AirPods and the Apple Watch.

Wistron has been an iPhone manufacturer itself since 2015, with plants in China and India. The report claims that Apple has asked Wistron to share some of its iPhone production expertise with Luxshare as part of the...

Who’s behind Wednesday’s epic Twitter hack?

This starts with a retelling of the hack story, but that’s just the start. The real juice starts down below that.

People within the SIM swapping community are obsessed with hijacking so-called “OG” social media accounts. Short for “original gangster,” OG accounts typically are those with short profile names (such as @B or @joe). Possession of these OG accounts confers a measure of status and perceived influence and wealth in SIM swapping circles, as such accounts can often fetch thousands of dollars when resold in the underground.

And:

In a post on OGusers — a forum dedicated to account hijacking — a user named “Chaewon” advertised they could change email address tied to any Twitter account for $250, and provide direct access to accounts for between $2,000 and $3,000 apiece.

Great Dalrymple’s Beard!!! That can’t be real, can it?

Lucky225 said that just before 2 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, he received a password reset confirmation code via Google Voice...

U.S. District Judge William Alsup has ordered Apple to hand over its Federal Communications Commission correspondence to consumers who allege iPhones emit dangerous levels of radiation, after asking Apple during a hearing if it was "afraid" the public would be "horrified" at the information, reports Law360 (a subscription is required to read the entire article).

I’m a bit dubious, but in February an independent lab found the iPhone 11 Pro emits more than twice the FCC’s legal safety limit for radio frequency (RF) radiation from a cellphone.

If you need an indoor camera that works just fine with Apple’s HomeKit and has strong privacy features, look no further tan Eve System’s US$149.95 Eve Cam. It’s great for keeping an eye on kids or pets, as well as for keeping an eye out for home intruders.

Eve Cam is made exclusively for Apple HomeKit Secure Video. Live images are never streamed through a server, and recordings are stored securely and fully encrypted in your iCloud.

The Eve Cam can be customized to your needs. You decide when it’s up and running and how it should respond to activity. An Apple TV, HomePod, or iPad can be used  as a home hub. As mentioned, in order to securely store activity detected by Eve Cam, HomeKit Secure Video relies on iCloud.

How to use the Look Around feature in Maps in iOS 13

iOS 13 introduced a Look Around feature in the Maps app that’s powered by the new basemap and high-resolution 3D photography. 

It delivers street-level imagery of a city with smooth transitions. To see it in action, select a specific address, open the Maps app, and:

Enter the location or address in the search bar option that says, “Search for a place or address” toward the bottom.

Choose the address you wish from the options offered. Once the map for the location opens, you can:

One: Press the binoculars icon for a minimized Look Around view. If Look Around data is available (and it sometimes isn’t), you’ll see a Look Around image pop up. You can either press Done to exit or press the expand icon with two arrows in the upper-left of the preview if you want to see the imagery in fullscreen mode.

Two: For a fullscreen view, you’ll hopefully see a preview of the Look Around view under the address...

Because type was composed in “galleys,” long runs of relatively narrow columns, someone entering copy could more easily see a long run of text this way.

Computers have come a long way, but this orientation remains the same. You may wind up with a lot of tasks that are better suited for a long vertical, like long runs of text that you’re writing, lots of lengthy menus or a huge array of palettes, or material that stacks well in wide rectangles from top to bottom for reference, like resized windows.

Instagram's new "Reels" feature is coming to the U.S. in early August, Facebook has confirmed (via Business Insider).

Apple patent describes potential two-way wireless Qi...

The wireless iPhone charger you’ve always wanted could be in the works.

Per a recent patent that was filed in May 2019, Apple is working on a two-coil wireless charging technology for an iPhone battery case that could charge without using the Lightning connector.

Current Smart Battery Case models can charge themselves wirelessly, but use a built-in Lightning connector to power the iPhone they’re attached to.

The patent describes how a smart battery case could use two coils to allow for bidirectional wireless charging.

A battery case has first and second coils on opposing sides of a battery and has switching circuitry that is coupled between the first and second coils,” the patent reads. These two coils, and associated circuitry, are important elements of a wireless Smart Battery case that could both charge itself and an iPhone wirelessly.

The patent goes on the explain how the case could use its own built-in battery to power a connected device...

Sabrent XTRM-Q SSD review: 8TB of pocket-sized...

Sabrent’s pocket-sized Rocket XTRM-Q external SSD offers the kick in the pants transfer speed (up to 10Gbps) provided by the Mac’s Thunderbolt 3, while adding the ability to operate via USB on computers that lack it. It is also available in a hitherto unheard of capacity of 8TB. Nice. Very nice. 

Design and specs

The Rocket XTRM-Q (extreme/QLC) is a small, handsome, dark-slate colored monolith measuring approximately 4 x 1.75 x 0.5 inches. It weighs around 5 ounces and there is a Type-C port on the business end.

Note that many companies (including Sabrent) advertise drives as USB-C and leave it at that. USB-C indicates USB connectivity and a Type-C port, but tells you nothing about performance. It might be SuperSpeed USB 5Gbps, it might be SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps or SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps. As noted, the XTRM-Q is SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps, née USB 3.x Gen 2, though you can only infer this from the...

Skype iOS App Gets Background Blurring Feature

Skype's mobile app for iPhone and iPad has been updated with a new screen-blurring feature this week. Users of Microsoft's video and voice calling service can now choose to blur the background on video calls if the scene behind them is something they'd rather not share.

Background blur in Skype and Teams uses artificial intelligence (AI)—trained in human form detection—to keep you in focus during your call. This technology is also trained to detect your hair, hands, and arms, making a call with background blur just as relaxed and easy as a regular video call.The idea behind the feature is to save the user's blushes because of the messy room they're skyping from, or to obscure a business plan on a whiteboard behind them, for example.

Background blur in Skype is similar to background blur in Microsoft Teams, according to the software giant. The results are...

European Commission Launches Internet of Things...

Alexa, Siri, Google Assistant, and other voice assistants and connected home products are the target of a new Internet of Things probe the European Commission launched today.

The European Commission says that it's aiming to prevent big companies from becoming "gatekeepers" of the Internet of Things through market domination and data collection.

The potential is incredible. But we'll only see the full benefits - low prices, wide choice, innovative products and services - if the markets for these devices stay open and competitive. And the trouble is that competition in digital markets can be fragile. When big companies abuse their power, they can very quickly push markets beyond the tipping point, where competition turns to monopoly. We've seen that happen before. If we don't act in good time, there's a serious risk that it will happen...

Joseph Cox, Motherboard:

A Twitter insider was responsible for a wave of high profile account takeovers on Wednesday, according to leaked screenshots obtained by Motherboard and two sources who took over accounts.

And:

“We used a rep that literally done all the work for us,” one of the sources told Motherboard. The second source added they paid the Twitter insider. Motherboard granted the sources anonymity to speak candidly about a security incident. A Twitter spokesperson told Motherboard that the company is still investigating whether the employee hijacked the accounts themselves or gave hackers access to the tool.

After a wave of account takeovers, screenshots of an internal Twitter user administration tool are being shared in the hacking underground.

Apple Maps Vehicles Now Surveying Finland, Norway,...

Apple Maps vehicles will be surveying select regions of Finland, Norway, and Sweden through August, collecting street-level imagery and data, according to a list of locations maintained on Apple's website.

The data collected will be used to improve Apple Maps and to expand its Look Around feature, which remains limited to large U.S. cities like Chicago and Los Angeles. Introduced in iOS 13, Look Around is similar to Google's Street View, providing a street-level view of a location with high-resolution 3D imagery that can be zoomed and panned.

One advantage of Look Around over Street View is smoother panning when moving around the map for a more immersive experience. As with Street View, Apple blurs faces and license plates in all of the 3D imagery that it makes available.

How Apple is preparing for its ‘Netflix moment’

Fantastic take from Seeking Alpha (free reg-wall). Just a few highlights from a much longer piece:

Apple has now grown up and realized it is not just about using content to sell devices. Eventually, those devices will stop being as profitable as they are now, but content (and the financial value of that content) lives forever.

And:

The pieces are now finally in place and Apple is steering itself into a new direction. It is showing the industry and shareholders that they have a real roadmap in place, and by next year (COVID-19 potentially notwithstanding), the company thinks it can (at a higher level) compete with the Netflix machine.

The “pieces” being the foundational elements of making and acquiring content, with Tom Hanks and Greyhound as a critical moment.

Greyhound being acquired and launching was step one – and again, make no mistake, the pandemic allowed Apple to basically bypass the lead-up to that step, because as mentioned, it had an...

Apple has filed for three more patents regarding its rumored “Apple Glasses,” an augmented reality head-mounted display (HMD). The first involves considerations for users with eye problems such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, or presbyopia. 

The tech giant says it can be challenging to ensure that an optical system in a head-mounted device displays computer-generated content satisfactorily and provides an acceptable viewing experience for users with visual defects. Apple has some solutions under consideration.

Patent number 20200225477 is for a “display system with virtual image distance adjustment and corrective lenses.” The goal is for Apple Glasses to direct its computer-generated image towards eye boxes for viewing by a user. The optical system may be a see-through optical system that allows the user to view a real-world object through the optical system.

Future Apple Pencils may be able to ‘sample’ and...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20200225778) for a “computer system with color sampling stylus” that hints at interesting new features for an upcoming Apple Pencil.

The idea is to equip the Pencil with a color sensor packed with photodetectors, each of which measures light for a different respective color channel. The color sensor may also have light-emitting devices that illuminate and scan an external object to determine the color of the external object. The color could be used in drawing or painting with the Apple Pencil.

Interestingly, the patent filing also mentions use of the Pencil with laptops, desktops, and smartphones, as well as augmented reality, head-mounted displays such as the rumored “Apple Glasses.” With the Mac line transitions to Apple Silicon over the next two years, we could see Macs with touchscreens and Apple Pencil support.

Apple will release its first Apple Silicon-based 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air by the end of 2020, according to DigiTimes. Total shipments of Apple’s laptop line-up are expected to reach 16-17 million units this year, the article adds.

The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) says DigiTimes’ prediction is 100% on-target. I also think there’s a 60% chance we’ll see an Apple Silicon-based, 24-inch iMac before the holidays.

Apple Silicon is, per Apple, “world-class custom silicon to deliver industry-leading performance and powerful new technologies.” It involves customized ARM technology, as well as Apple’s own System on a Chip.

AA20-198A: Malicious Cyber Actor Use of Network...

Original release date: July 16, 2020
Summary

This Activity Alert uses the MITRE Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Common Knowledge (ATT&CK™) and Pre-ATT&CK frameworks. See the MITRE ATT&CK for Enterprise and Pre-ATT&CK frameworks for referenced threat actor techniques.

Attributing malicious cyber activity that uses network tunneling and spoofing techniques to a specific threat actor is difficult. Attribution requires analysis of multiple variables, including location. Because threat actors can use these techniques to obfuscate their location, it is not possible to identify the true physical location of malicious activity based solely on the geolocation of Internet Protocol (IP). This Alert discusses how threat actors use these obfuscation techniques to mislead incident responders.

New proposals show Apple exploring how to leverage Apple AR to effectively create ways to protect privacy more.

The Media Coding Industry Forum (MC-IF) says it welcomes the completion of Versatile Video Coding (VVC). VVC is a new video coding standard with improved compression performance and efficient support for new video formats such as High Dynamic Range and 360° video. 

VVC is the successor to HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) and H.264/AVC (Advanced Video Coding). It was developed jointly by VCEG (ITU-T Q6/16) and MPEG (ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 11) in a collaborative effort involving more than 50 organizations, many of whom are MC-IF members.

The VVC standard was consented by ITU-T Study Group 16 on July 3, 2020, to be published as ITU-T Recommendation H.266. Concurrently, MPEG submitted the VVC standard for Final Draft International Standard ballot, to be published as ISO/IEC 23090-3. VVC efficiently encodes high fidelity video including Ultra HD picture resolutions of 4K and 8K, often at half the bitrate compared to HEVC while maintaining the same visual quality.

Why the iOS Mail app shows a phantom unread message...

If you don’t regularly check your email throughout the day, the unread badge count on your iPhone or iPad is an indispensable part of your workflow. When it works, that is. If your iOS Mail app is like mine, it often shows a lone unread email badge even when everything’s been read, which can get annoying.

There’s a simple explanation for it that doesn’t involve nuking your account and starting over (believe me, I’ve tried). It has to do with rules. While you can’t actually create mailbox rules on your iOS device, you can set them up on the Mac, which is where the trouble starts.

Mail rules are basically if-this-then-that sorting and organizing for your inbox. You can have messages automatically move, redirect, forward, or flag based on the sender, subject, or contents, and it’s very useful for keeping clutter out of your inbox. However, since Mail Rules can only be created on the Mac, the...

How to use picture-in-picture on your iPhone in iOS...

Apple first implemented picture-in-picture on the iPad way back in iOS 9, and users have been clamoring for it to come to the iPhone ever since. With iOS 14, Apple is finally giving us our wish. PIP is coming to iPhone, and it works almost exactly like it does on iPad.

Apps need to incorporate support for the feature, though. During the early beta days, you can use the TV app or any video that streams in Safari, but popular apps like Netflix and YouTube have not yet implemented PIP support. That will likely change by the time iOS 14 is released in the fall.
