That service may not be launching until the fall and we don’t know what it will cost, but we know Apple’s got dozens of projects in the works for it.

Hauwei delays launch of Mate X smartphone with...

Foldable screens are en route, but they may be a while yet in arriving.

Huawei on Friday confirmed that the company is delaying the launch of its Mate X foldable smartphone from June to September given quality assurance purposes.

A spokesperson for Huawei said the Chinese smartphone maker is being more “cautious” after some reviewers experienced embarrassing display issues with Samsung’s foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold. “We don’t want to launch a product to destroy our reputation.”

Samsung somewhat infamously delayed the launch of its Galaxy Fold smartphone in April, stating that it plans to announce a new release date “in the coming weeks.” 

Last month, the Trump administration added Huawei to a trade blacklist over alleged national security concerns, effectively forbidding U.S. companies from doing business with the Chinese smartphone and telecom giant, but a Huawei executive said that supply chain issues are not behind the delay.

All the new ways iOS 13 protects your privacy

When iOS 13 launches this fall, our iPhones and iPads are going to get a huge upgrade. It’s packed with features and performance enhancements. And while things like Dark Mode and Siri enhancements are going to grab our attention, maybe the best features of iOS 13 are all the things Apple is doing to help protect our privacy.

Apple’s moved beyond just some sternly-worded updates to App Store policies. With iOS 13, privacy gets right up in your face. You’re going to be better-protected from apps and sites that try to suck up unneeded personal info or track you all over the web and the real world, and you’re going to get constant reminders about bad actors.

Cook stressed the importance of not accepting that we must give up privacy in order to enjoy advances in technology, arguing that there's much more at stake than just our data.If we accept as normal and unavoidable that everything...

Comment: iCloud has finally delivered on Steve Jobs...

Back when Steve Jobs unveiled iCloud in 2011, we were pitched a vision of data being available everywhere. Jobs pitched demoting the Mac and moving the digital hub into the cloud. All of our devices had connectivity built-in, so data should be available everywhere. The problem was it didn’t cover all of our photos. We didn’t get that until iCloud Photos came in iOS 8. It didn’t cover iMessage, as that didn’t come until a few years ago. It didn’t cover all of our files, but only those in the iCloud folder stored inside of app folders. We didn’t get seamless syncing of files until Apple added Desktop and Document folder syncing.

Filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, a patent suit from Princeps Interface Technologies alleges Apple's keyboard infringes on the work of Timothy Higginson, a technology industry lawyer and inventor. Princeps is suing for damages and legal fees.

Cellebrite Says It Can Unlock Any iPhone For Cops

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Wired: On Friday afternoon, the Israeli forensics firm and law enforcement contractor Cellebrite publicly announced a new version of its product known as a Universal Forensic Extraction Device or UFED, one that it's calling UFED Premium. In marketing that update, it says that the tool can now unlock any iOS device cops can lay their hands on, including those running iOS 12.3, released just a month ago. Cellebrite claims UFED Premium can extract files from many recent Android phones as well, including the Samsung Galaxy S9. No other law enforcement contractor has made such broad claims about a single product, at least not publicly. The move signals not only another step in the cat and mouse game between smartphone makers and the government-sponsored firms that seek to defeat their security, but also a more unabashedly public phase of that security face-off.

AirPods still dominate the wireless hearables market

The size of the global market for true wireless hearables reached 17.5 million units in quarter one (Q1) of 2019, growing 40% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ), according to the findings of Counterpoint Research’s Hearables Market Tracker. While all regions continued to grow, North America and Europe were the fastest growing regions.

Apple’s market share remained at the same level seen in the last quarter, failing to grow in spite of the launch of its second generation AirPods. Still, it dominates the market, as the graph shows. While sales of the first generation AirPods were higher than expected thanks to a variety of sales promotions for stock-outs in the channel in Q1 2019, sales of the new model were weaker than initially expected due to the market’s...

A love letter to an old-school Macintosh

Ian Bogost, The Atlantic:

Everything about this computer is loud: The groan of the power supply is loud. The hum of the cooling fan is loud. The whir of the hard disk is loud. The clack of the mechanical keyboard is loud. It’s so loud I can barely think, the kind of noise I usually associate with an airline cabin: whoom, whoom, whoom, whoom.

This is the experience a computer user would have had every time she booted up her Macintosh SE, a popular all-in-one computer sold by Apple from 1987 to 1990. By today’s standards the machine is a dinosaur. It boasts a nine-inch black-and-white display. Mine came with a hard disk that offers 20 megabytes of storage, but some lacked even that luxury. And the computer still would have cost a fortune: The version I have retailed for $3,900, or about $8,400 in 2019 dollars.

And:

The original Macintosh was an adorable dwarf of a computer. About the size of a full-grown pug, its small footprint, built-in handle, and light...

Starting today, Apple fans can visit an Apple retail store to try out the Activ5 smart fitness device.

Wondering how a small device can provide enough effort to give a workout that even Pittsburgh Steelers players are using it? Check out this explanatory video:

If you happen to be in Chicago today, you can visit the Apple Michigan Avenue store to see a demo by the Activ5 team today. San Diego residents can go to Apple UTC for a similar demo...or you can visit most Apple retail stores and try one out for yourself.

Both Charter and Comcast offer wireless service as part of a joint mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) agreement with Verizon, originally agreed to in 2012. Comcast, which started its sevice in 2017, has about 1.5 million Xfinity mobile subscribers, and Charter, which started last September, had more than 300,000 as of March 31.

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20190180015) involving “audio accessory assistance” that would make Macs, iPhones, and iPads more accessible for users with disabilities.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that folks often rely on computing devices such as Macs, iPhones, and iPads to supplement aspects of modern life. For example, we may use our mobile devices to communicate with one another, entertain ourselves, access various sources of information, etc. 

However, for someone who is visually impaired, interacting with a computing device can prove to be more difficult as it may impossible to read information presented on a traditional visual display. Apple says that, as a result, various techniques have been developed to assist visually impaired users. For example, a computing device may include a refreshable braille display capable of providing tactile feedback to the user. Per the company’s plans, computing device may also provide...
