Mobile time surpasses TV time in the U.S.

This year, for the first time, U.S. adults will spend more time using their mobile devices than they will spend watching TV, with smartphone use dominating mobile time, according to the eMarketer research group.

In 2019, U.S. adults will spend an average of 3 hours and 43 minutes (3:43) on mobile devices daily, excluding voice time, while they will spend 3:35 watching TV. In 2018, the average time spent on mobile was 3:35, with TV clocking in at 3:44.

“We’ve expected that mobile would overtake TV for a while, but seeing it happen is still surprising,” said eMarketer principal analyst Yoram Wurmser. “As recently as 2014, the average U.S. adult watched TV nearly two hours longer than they spent on mobile devices.”

Seventy percent of U.S. adults’ mobile time will be spent on smartphones, reaching 2:33 this year, a 9-minute increase over 2018. Smartphone usage will continue to account for most of their mobile consumption—but we also predict growth will slow,...

Rumor: 2019 iPhone XR batteries said to have entered...

Apple’s next-gen iPhone batteries are said to be in production, with the overall capacity increasing about six percent this year.

Apple is said to still be purchasing batteries form Chinese supplier Contemporary Amperex Technology, with the component said to have an increased capacity from the current model that adds nearly six percent more power. 

CATLis believed to have started mass production of the battery units on June 9, its battery packaging duties being handled by Huapu Technology.

The new battery will be larger in capacity than the iPhone XR’s version, according to sources, with the cells said to be 3,110mAh in size, an increase of six percent from the 2,942mAh version used in the iPhone XR. The increase will also make the battery the largest capacity version out of all iPhone models that use a single battery cell. 

The iPhone XS Max has a bigger capacity than the new battery, weighing in at 3,171mAh, but it and the iPhone XS use an L-shaped...

Apple releases macOS Mojave 10.14.5 Boot Camp Update...

If you have an iMac or a Mac mini with a Fusion Drive, this is going to come in handy.

Apple recently released its macOS Mojave 10.14.5 Boot Camp Update, a small, supplemental update designed for iMac and Mac mini users with Fusion Drive installs.

The update, which operates as a fix to Boot Camp, allows Boot Camp to create a hard drive partition to run Windows. The fix repairs a bug that prevented the creation of a new Boot Camp partition on iMac and Mac mini with a Fusion Drive.

The update can be downloaded from Apple’s support page, and not through the regular update channel in System Preferences because it’s only for iMac and Mac mini users.

If you’ve had a chance to try the update and have any feedback to offer, please let us know about your experience in the comments.

Why Apple should follow Google's lead and...

It’s only June but already the fall smartphone wars are heating up. Apple last week unveiled iOS 13 and with it many of the new features that will grace the next iPhone, and now Google has one-upped the hype machine with an unprecedented reveal of the Pixel 4 months ahead of its presumed launch.

And why not? We all know the Pixel 4 is coming in October, and after YouTube creator Unbox Therapy got his hands on a metal model of new phone and seemingly spilled all the details about the new dual camera and design, it was just a matter of counting the days. So rather than let it play out with rumors and speculation for months...

SwiftUI and Catalyst: Apple Executes Its Invisible...

Catalyst is Apple's framework that enables developers to easily bring existing iOS apps to the Mac, while SwiftUI is a new, Swift-based technology that makes it easy for developers to create one app that runs on all of Apple's platforms. Jason Snell from Macworld highlights the slow, invisible transition of these new technologies. From the report: Catalyst, which arrives this fall, will allow developers who are well-versed in the vagaries of writing iOS apps to use those skills to write Mac apps. This will most commonly take the form of bringing iPad apps to the Mac, with additions to make them feel more like native Mac apps, but it's more than that -- it provides iOS developers with a familiar set of tools and access to an entirely new platform, and it makes the target for professional apps across Apple's platforms broader by including both the iPad and the Mac. iOS apps are currently built to run on devices running Apple-designed ARM processors, and if the rumors are true, that's...

Apple Pencil: All the changes coming in iPadOS 13

Apple didn’t announce any new versions of the Apple Pencil hardware at this year’s WWDC, but it did announce some substantial improvements to how we’ll use it. The stylish stylus only took up a few minutes of Apple’s iPadOS presentation, but those moments were enough to demonstrate that Apple’s transforming it into more of a necessity than a novelty.

Apple is taking care to show that the Pencil isn’t just a tool for artists. Indeed, the WWDC presentation spent more time showing how we might use it in an office environment—in other words, more like a pen and legal pad. Here’s what you can expect when iPadOS drops later in the year.

Better latency, better writing experience

The Apple Pencil already has a very good latency of 20ms, but iPadOS will push that all the way down to 9ms. That means the iPad will do a better job of interpreting your subtle movements while handling the Pencil, which in turn should translate into a writing experience that better resembles...

Patently Apple was first to discover a European patent filing by Apple on the subject of 8K Foveated Micro-Displays for a future video headset in February 2018.

Digiday: Airpods are changing office life

Digiday:

Headphones are a fact of life inside open plan offices, but Airpods have quickly become a staple of life at ad agency life, with staffers walking around all day with the signature little pods in their ears.

And:

“I know they’re not listening to music, or anything, but it’s still disconcerting to see them with something in their ears while we’re all discussing something,” said one agency CEO, who said he once had a meeting with someone wearing Airpods. “It’s like, ‘what?’”

Fascinating piece. I’ve had plenty of conversations with people with AirPods in my own ears, and/or with AirPods in theirs. One key difference between AirPods and Beats Powerbeats Pro is the ability to hear background noise. The Powerbeats Pro are designed to wedge tightly into the ear canal, making conversation more difficult, at least to me, than with AirPods in my ears.

And the almost viral spread of AirPods means more people keeping them in their ears on a regular...

Could 16-inch MacBook Pros, new MacBooks be coming...

As noted by MacRumors, Apple has registered seven unreleased Mac models in the Eurasian Economic Commission database today, including A2141, A2147, A2158, A2159, A2179, A2182, and A2251, according to listings uncovered by MacRumors. All seven models appear to be notebooks, as they are described as "portable" computers. 

The most likely update is for the 12-inch MacBook line, which hasn’t been updated in almost two years. Some pundits think it will be the first Mac to sport an Apple-developed A.x processor.

The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) says this is unlikely. I suspect the upgraded MacBook will offer processor and graphics upgrades in the current form factor.

Of course, Apple isn’t going to release seven MacBook models, so it’s possible that we’ll see the super-sized MacBook Pro that’s been predicted by Ming-Chi Kuo.

Federico Viticci’s first look at iPadOS

Federico Viticci:

For now though, after using the iPadOS beta on my 12.9″ iPad Pro for a few days, I’d like to share some initial considerations on iPadOS and what it means for the future of the platform.

And:

What truly matters, however, is that the message Apple is sending with iPadOS is the kind of trajectory I wanted to see for the future of iPad. There are functionalities such as multiwindow and file management that the Mac figured out decades ago; in bringing them to iPadOS, however, Apple isn’t simply copying and pasting the same features from one platform to another: instead, they’ve taken those features’ underlying concepts and fundamentally rethought them for the iPad’s touch nature and iOS foundation.

Federico is passionate about iPad, has written more cogent detail about iPad than just about anyone else I follow. If you are an iPad user, take the time to dig in, get a sense of the iPad’s future.

The post references the headline linked Apple support post, specifically this:

If your device stopped charging at 80 percent

Your iPhone might get slightly warmer while it charges. To extend the lifespan of your battery, if the battery gets too warm, software might limit charging above 80 percent. Your iPhone will charge again when the temperature drops. Try moving your iPhone and charger to a cooler location.

Once you’ve got your head wrapped around that, follow the headline link for The Verge’s interview with Google product management director Mark Risher. A few highlights:

Apple shook up the world of logins last week, offering a new single sign-on (or SSO) tool aimed at collecting and sharing as little data as possible. It was a deliberate shot at Facebook and Google, which currently operate the two major SSO services.

Not so sure it was a shot at anyone, but more of a safer, privacy respecting solutions for Apple users.

Apple files for patent for linking two iPads together

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20190182972) for a “system with multiple display” that would allow two iPads to be linked together. It involves a magnetic stand configured to rigidly hold a portion of the tablet device in place and to shield the magnetic field from adversely affecting nearby devices susceptible to strong magnetic fields. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that tablet devices are used in an increasingly wide range of applications. In many of these applications a way for conveniently mounting the device is required. A number of manufacturers have tried to produce such a device. Apple says that, however since most tablets have no built in mounting mechanism, mounting devices “tend to be somewhat cumbersome and generally do not allow for easy removal.” The tech giant thinks it can do better. 

Apple has been granted a similar patent (number 10,037,054) for a “magnetic attachment unit” that also involves linking two iPads....

Apple Confirms Dashboard is Going Away After 14 Years

Apple has removed Dashboard support from WebKit, not long after it was discovered that the feature has been completely dropped in macOS Catalina, according to a changelog spotted by Japanese blog Mac Otakara.

While this news is not entirely surprising, it eliminates any slim hope that Dashboard might have returned in a future beta of macOS Catalina. The feature has already been disabled by default since OS X Yosemite, but it can still be manually enabled within Mission Control in System Preferences as of macOS Mojave.

In its inaugural connected vehicle forecast, International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates that worldwide shipments of connected vehicles, which includes options for embedded and aftermarket cellular connectivity, will reach 51.1 million units in 2019, an increase of 45.4% over 2018. 

By 2023, IDC expects worldwide shipments to reach 76.3 million units with a five-year compound annual growth rate of 16.8%. The research group defines a connected vehicle as a light-duty vehicle or truck that contains a dedicated cellular network wireless wide area connection that interfaces with the vehicle data (e.g., gateways, software, or sensors). Newer, recent model year vehicles are shipped with an embedded, factory-installed connected vehicle system. Older vehicles typically connect via an aftermarket device, which is a self-contained hardware and software unit that is installed into a vehicle’s OBDII port.

iPhones to be able to scan Japanese ID cards’ NFC...

This should be nifty if you’re living in Japan.

iPhones running iOS 13 will be able to scan NFC chips in Japanese identity cards thanks to Apple’s inclusion of broader access to NFC chips via third-party apps.

As a result, Japanese citizens will be able to scan their identity cards, storing the information on their phones.

This also marks one of the first times in which third-party uses have been authorized by Apple.

The identity cards, termed “My Number” in Japanese, but “Individual Number Cards” in English, were introduced alongside a numerical ID system in 2015. All residents of Japan are issued a number on paper that’s used for various administrative purposes such as filing taxes, though it’s not mandatory to hold the card itself.

The contains an NFC chip that can be read by a government-developed app capable of storing personal information. Certain Android phones already support this, but the popularity of the iPhone in Japan and the broad...

A quick glance into the upcoming, modular 2019 Mac Pro, which Apple stated could be upgraded with new components, features custom SSD connectors that will have to be purchased from Apple.

The leaked shot reveals that the SSD connectors aren’t industry standard, and do not feature a standard M.2 pinout.

Apple has declined to speak about the slot’s pin compatibility with older Apple SSD modules, leaving open the possibility that Apple is using a proprietary new connector.

Stay tuned for additional new details as they become available.

Fledging Shell Thunderbolt 3 review: Roll your own...

There’s nothing like generic when it comes to saving money, be it prescription medicines or the Shell Thunderbolt 3. The Shell, a svelte $151 unpopulated (no drive) enclosure from Fledging offers about the same performance as Samsung’s X5, but for quite a bit less, depending on which M.2 NVMe SSD you install in it.

Design and features

The Shell Thunderbolt is considerably smaller than the Samsung X5: 3.75 inches long, by 1.85 inches wide, by a mere 0.4 inches thick. It’s rendered in solid metal which is better for shedding heat, a good thing. At least until you pick the Shell up after heavy use. It can run startlingly hot under heavy load.

Malwarebytes Premium review: A fast, efficient...

Malwarebytes began life as a complement to antivirus suites. It was a backstop to catch and remove particularly troublesome malware that your primary security program couldn't. That all changed in December 2016 when the company announced its paid version, Malwarebytes Premium, was capable enough to be your primary security program. “With the launch of Malwarebytes 3.0, we are confident that you can finally replace your traditional antivirus,” the company said in a blog post.

Malwarebytes comes in two flavors. The first is the free version that is only capable of removing malware infections during a scan. Upgrade to Malwarebytes Premium at an annual cost of $40 for a single device or $60 for 10 devices, and it adds real-time protection, adware and unwanted program blocking, automatic updates, and scan scheduling.

Intel has reportedly considered selling off pieces of its modem business, and the heart of that business is in Germany, where Intel acquired and integrated Infineon for $1.4 billion in 2011. The engineers that ended up in that division previously worked on chips that ended up in the iPhone about a decade ago.

Apple Retail two-hour deliveries are a reality

Now that’s what I call customer service!

Apple continues to surprise me, even after 35 years of using the company’s products. Today I needed to order an Apple Pencil 2 because of an upcoming article I’m working on. I’m quite busy, so I didn’t want to take the time to run over to either of the two Apple retail outlets that are nearby and decided to order using the Apple Store app. Well, imagine my surprise when I saw an option for two hour delivery! For $9, that Apple Pencil will be delivered in two hours by courier. (See the update below for news on how long it REALLY took…)

I’m used to getting next-day deliveries from Amazon Prime, and I’ve even had Amazon do a same day delivery of an item that I ordered early in the morning. It’s good to see Apple fighting back on Amazon’s turf, even if it is only in places that have a nearby Apple Store.

Initially, the technology was made available for Chrome OS, macOS, and Windows 10 devices. Today, Google announced it is expanding this technology to iOS as well. Today's news means that iPhone and iPad users can now use their (secondary) Android smartphones as a security key whenever logging into their Google accounts on an iOS device.

Apple last week unveiled a new Sign In with Apple option, offering up a convenient, privacy-focused alternative to sign-in options from companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter.

Apple collects no data and provides little data to the apps and websites you use with the feature, and it even offers an option to keep your email safe. In an interview with The Verge, Google product management director Mark Risher, who oversees Google's secure sign in tool, shared his thoughts on Apple's new feature.

Risher says that Google's own tool is not as data hungry as it was made out to be, and that it's not used for advertising or re-targeting. "There was a bunch of innuendo wrapped around the release that suggested that only one of them is pure and the rest of them are kind of corrupt, and obviously I don't like that," he said.
