Sonnet Technologies has announced the $999 xMac mini Server Thunderbolt 3 Edition, an updated version of its Thunderbolt-to-PCIe card expansion system and rackmount enclosure designed exclusively for Apple Mac mini computers.

In 2017, it was reported that the tech giant planned to “significantly expand” its engineering operations in Seattle. And in 2018...

Apple plans to lease a large office complex in Seattle's booming South Lake Union neighborhood, near Amazon, according to multiple commercial real estate sources cited by the Puget Sound Business Journal.

Rumor: Apple is considering buying Intel’s modem unit

Apple is in talks to buy Intel’s German modem unit, according to The Information, quoting four unnamed “people briefed on the discussions.”

While Intel’s modem group is spread across the world, its foundation is in Germany, where the chip maker Infineon, whose modem operations Intel bought in 2011 for $1.4 billion, is based. After a loooong legal battle, Apple and Qualcomm reached a settlement in May that included a six-year agreement for the latter to provide modems for the former’s products. After that date (around 2025), you can expect Apple to make its own modems.

That date is later than some pundits predicted. Many thought we’d see Apple-...

Shazam can now identify songs playing through your...

James Vincent, The Verge:

Shazam can be an incredibly useful app, able to identify songs and find lyrics for them just by listening to the audio. But one big annoyance has been the software’s inability to ‘hear’ music playing through a device’s headphones. Instead, users have to play the song through internal speakers or find a way to direct the sound to their phone or tablet’s microphone.

Not any more. A new feature called Pop-up Shazam in the latest Android version of the app works with audio played through headphones with Shazam working in the background.

As soon as I read this I thought, cool, been waiting for this. But try as I might, could not get this to work in iOS.

If you are listening to the Music app via headphones in iOS, you can fire up Shazam or ask Siri what’s playing. Works perfectly. But if you are watching YouTube via headphones, or perhaps Netflix, Hulu, etc., there does not appear to be a way for Siri or Shazam to hear what you’re...

Jon Alper’s detailed take on the new Mac Pro

Jon Alper:

Minimizing the compromises while maximizing flexibility is a the core design theme of this Mac. It’s a profoundly different direction from the 2013 Mac Pro in all the best an most unexpected ways. Arguably, even if you never buy one, it’s an expensive (for Apple to make, not just for customers to buy) message from Apple practically shouting: ‘’We’re committed to the Mac, we’re listening to our customers and we understand some of them need something wholly unlike an iMac let alone a laptop.”

And:

It’s not a sports car. This is realization of the 2010 Steve Jobs’ quote: “When we were an agrarian nation, all cars were trucks. But as people moved more towards urban centers, people started to get into cars. I think PCs are going to be like trucks. Less people will need them. And this is going to make some people uneasy” .This truck is a thundering, earth mover of a truck.

Apple Watch can display Apple ID verification codes...

Joe Rossignol, MacRumors, writing about Jeremy Horwitz’ tweet:

Starting in watchOS 6, the Apple Watch has become a trusted device for Apple ID authentication purposes.

And:

When you or someone else signs in to your Apple ID on a new device or browser, the Apple Watch will automatically alert you, complete with an approximate location of the person. If the sign-in attempt is allowed, a six-digit verification code will then appear to be entered on the new device or browser.

Apple, firing on all cylinders.

The BookBook Vol 2 is a great case for most users of...

Twelve South’s newest edition of the BookBook (Vol 2) has been updated for the 2018 iPad Pro. I’ve been using the case with a 12.9-inch iPad Pro (there’s also a version for the 11-inch tablet), and it’s as durable and eye-popping as you’d expect from Twelve South.

Vol. 2 offers all the protection of the previous BookBook, but sports a new built-in shell to securely hold your iPad Pro, while showcasing the Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display. And — thank you, Twelve South — it includes added storage space for your Apple Pencil so you can keep track of it while charging on-the-go. 

The quality is obvious as soon as you touch the case. The hard leather front and back assure you that your precious Apple tablet will be in good hands while you’re on the go. Since I’m prone to dropping things, the reinforced corners give me a sense of security. While there is a slight bulk to the Twelve South...

Recover messages from a deleted mail account in Mail...

Sometimes you make a rookie mistake, like shutting down a hosted email account before you—well, before I—download all the messages that are stored on the server and synced to my Macs and iOS devices via IMAP. I felt like a dope. I had already contacted the mail hosting company, which retains deleted accounts for seven days for just this reason, when I realized I should have a full backup cached on my iMac.

This Mac is always on and the Mail app is always running. The account I’d just deleted should be fully synced with the cached download in Mail, so long as I didn’t restart my Mac or even quit Mail. If you quit or restart, it’s hard to know exactly what cached content would be temporarily deleted by Mail or macOS.

Apple patent filing hints at more flexible iPhones...

Personally, I’m dubious that Apple will ever release foldable iPhones. However, as a new patent filing (number 10,318,061) for “flexible electronic devices,” we may see more “bendable” smartphones (and perhaps iPads and Apple Watches) from the tech giant.

The biggest advantage of such devices is that they would be less susceptible to damage. Currently, most gadgets are made of rigid housing structures that are more prone to break. In the patent filing, Apple also notes that bendable displays could be made using flexible, organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display tech.

Here’s the summary of the invention: “A flexible electronic device may include a flexible display, a flexible housing and one or more flexible internal components configured to allow the flexible electronic device to be deformed. Flexible displays may include flexible display layers, flexible touch-sensitive layers, and flexible display cover layers. The flexible housing may...

The research group expects much of the growth in AR/VR spending will be driven by accelerating investments from the commercial and public sectors. The strongest spending growth over the 2019-2023 forecast period will come from the financial (133.9% CAGR) and infrastructure (122.8% CAGR) sectors, while the manufacturing and public sectors will follow closely.

We’ve now heard most of the big announcements coming out of this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, and—as usual—the lion’s share of the attention went to games for consoles and Windows PCs.

But there’s a decent amount of love here for the iOS and Mac crowds, too, particularly from Bethesda Softworks and Square Enix. This year’s show also introduced us to xCloud—Microsoft’s Xbox-centered alternative to Google’s upcoming Stadia streaming service—as well as Bethesda’s new technology for making all these new streaming services run more efficiently. We didn’t see many truly new game announcements for Mac and iOS, but there are plenty of updates for existing games.

Rumor: Apple reportedly looking to acquire key...

Apple is rumored to be in talks to buy a key section of Intel’s modem business, a division that was effectively shut down after Apple and Qualcomm settled their worldwide legal dispute in April.

Per sources close to the story, it’s been said that Apple is looking to procure Intel’s German operation, which serves as the heart of its modem business. 

The German wing is comprised of engineers from Infineon’s wireless technology branch, which Intel purchased for $1.4 billion in 2011. This group is said to have provided baseband chips for iPhone from 2007 to 2010.

Negotiations are said to have been ongoing since 2018 and, while tenuous, could allow Apple to acquire hundreds of veteran modem engineers. This, in turn, would allow Apple to work on its 5G modem.

Intel has offered the following comments:

“We have hired outside advisers to help us assess strategic options for our wireless 5G phone business,” an Intel spokesman said. “We have created value...

Apple's US iPhones Can All Be Made Outside of...

A senior executive at Foxconn says they have enough capacity to make all iPhones bound for the U.S. outside of China if necessary. Bloomberg reports: China is a crucial cog in Apple's business, the origin of most of its iPhones and iPads as well as its largest international market. But President Donald Trump has threatened Beijing with new tariffs on about $300 billion worth of Chinese goods, an act that would escalate tensions dramatically while levying a punitive tax on Apple's most profitable product. Hon Hai, known also as Foxconn, is the American giant's most important manufacturing partner. It will fully support Apple if it needs to adjust its production as the U.S.-Chinese trade spat gets grimmer and more unpredictable, board nominee and semiconductor division chief Young Liu told an investor briefing in Taipei on Tuesday. "Twenty-five percent of our production capacity is outside of China and we can help Apple respond to its needs in the U.S. market," said Liu, adding that...

Last week in San Jose I found myself considering something John Gruber wrote for Macworld at the beginning of this decade—about how Apple’s product design doesn’t happen in short bursts, contrary to popular belief. It is a marathon, not a sprint. And no other company in the tech industry has the track record at it that Apple has.

“It’s a slow and steady process of continuous iterative improvement—so slow, in fact, that the process is easy to overlook if you’re observing it in real time,” Gruber wrote. “Only in hindsight is it obvious just how remarkable Apple’s platform development process is.”

The green screen effect is by far the most interesting as it lets you replace any green or blue background in your videos with imported imagery. It does a lot to make iMovie more like the real movies.

You’ll also get 80 new soundtracks that run the gamut from pop to chill, and each one adjusts to fit the length of your projects. Today’s update also introduces the ability to drop images with transparent backgrounds into your videos, which will come in handy if you’d like to keep your logo on the screen for a YouTube project.

Apple releases iOS 12.4 beta 4 to developers

Apple released iOS 12.3 in the second week of May, bringing us its new TV app with Channels subscriptions. Just days later, it started releasing betas to developers for another point release, iOS 12.4.

With WWDC just around the corner, and the first iOS 13 beta likely to land at that time, it’s not yet clear why Apple needs another release. Simple bug and security fixes generally don’t get major point-release status; we would get a 12.3.1 release if there were no significant user-facing features.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 12.4 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center.

There were no new features discovered in the first three iOS 12.4 betas, so it's not entirely clear what's coming in the update. As a more significant 12.x update, it's possible that the update is focusing on a feature that's not yet available -- the Apple Card.

iPhone XS crushes Samsung Galaxy S10 when it comes...

According to BankMyCell, a site for comparing trade-in items for tech devices, Galaxy S10’s lost more value inone month than the iPhone XS lost in nine months.

The report says the iPhone XS/XR range lost 42.40% in nine months of release, while the Samsung Galaxy S10 range lost 46.69% in the first month of release. Even the budget versions of the flagship phones followed a similar pattern, with the Galaxy S10e losing 11.1% more of its value in 30 days than the iPhone XR did in over half a year.

However, when reviewing the depreciation data, even though the iPhone XS range is outperforming the Galaxy S10 range in terms of resale value, it wasn’t a cause for celebration for Apple owners. In the nine months since its release, the iPhone XS is losing value much faster than the iPhone X did (13.85% more, in fact).

Barron’s notes that a new report from Evercore ISI (that Apple Music could be worth more than half of Spotify if Apple is forced to divest it to comply with antitrust-related actions, according to Evercore ISI, a financial institution based in London, England.

Apple stock was recently up 1.4% to $195.20 as the S&P 500 was up less than 1%. Evercore ISI analyst Amit Daryanani—who earlier this month started coverage of the tech giant with an Outperform rating and a $205 price target—explored the way litigation or other antitrust actions could affect the company’s services business, the article adds. Evercore ISI thinks Apple’s streaming music service would be worth $20 billion as a standalone company.

∞ Mythic Quest, an Apple TV+ trailer

[VIDEO] Watch the trailer embedded in the main Loop post, then read on.

This was revealed at E3, in a spot typically reserved for games, not TV shows. The star, front and center, was Rob McElhenney, best known for his role in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. And that voice? That’s the great F Murray Abraham, perhaps best known for playing Salieri in the movie Amadeus.

This is a trailer for a new Apple TV+ show, Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet. From the Wikipedia page:

The series is set in “a video game development studio and will explore the intricacies of the human condition through hilarious and innovative ways.”

On my short list. Please, please, please be good.

The day the music burned

The New York Times:

The fire moved quickly. It engulfed the backlot’s famous New York City streetscape. It burned two sides of Courthouse Square, a set featured in “Back to the Future.” It spread south to a cavernous shed housing the King Kong Encounter, an animatronic attraction for theme-park visitors.

And:

The fire moved quickly. It engulfed the backlot’s famous New York City streetscape. It burned two sides of Courthouse Square, a set featured in “Back to the Future.” It spread south to a cavernous shed housing the King Kong Encounter, an animatronic attraction for theme-park visitors.

And:

Eventually the flames reached a 22,320-square-foot warehouse that sat near the King Kong Encounter. The warehouse was nondescript, a hulking edifice of corrugated metal, but it was one of the most important buildings on the 400-acre lot. Its official name was Building 6197. To backlot workers, it was known as the video vault.

And that’s the core of...

Organize Your Workspace with the ProBase C Aluminum...

I sincerely hope that nobody else’s has a workspace as messy as mine. Around my trusty 27-inch iMac are numerous USB drives, hubs, and other connectors, so finding things (like one of those little micro-SD cards) can be an exercise in futility. I need to get one of today’s deals — a ProBase C Aluminum Monitor Stand — so that I have space below that iMac to organize a lot of the clutter. Our deal gets you the stand for $89, which is a cool $50 off of the usual price.

Available in silver and space gray, the ProBase C Aluminum Monitor Stand has these great features:

Apple Arcade is poised to become a major force in...

Leif Johnson, Macworld:

Almost out of nowhere, Apple is poised to be a major force in mainstream gaming. It’s doing it in its own Apple way, too—not by chasing down the graphics-intensive blockbusters so popular on devices like the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (or even the PC), but instead by positioning its upcoming Apple Arcade service as a hub for remarkable and tightly focused games that often get mentioned in discussions of whether games are art.

And:

It’s partly funding some of the games in Apple Arcade. It officially announced Project Catalyst, which will allow the same apps to work across the iPhone, the iPad, the Mac, and possibly Apple TV. It’s lifted most of the restrictions that kept games out of Apple’s walled garden for years, most notably by announcing support for wireless Xbox One controllers and Sony’s Dual Shock 4 for the PlayStation 4.

This is not simply about Apple Arcade. Sure, Apple Arcade is an important pillar in Apple’s modern...

What Apple knows about you

Ina Fried, Axios:

Apple pitches itself as the most privacy-minded of the big tech companies, and indeed it goes to great lengths to collect less data than its rivals. Nonetheless, the iPhone maker will still know plenty about you if you use many of its services: In particular, Apple knows your billing information and all the digital and physical goods you have bought from it, including music, movie and app purchases.

But:

Apple uses a number of techniques to either minimize how much data it has or encrypt it so that Apple doesn’t have access to iMessages and similar personal communications.

And:

Apple is able to do this, in part, because it makes its money from selling hardware, and increasingly from selling services, rather than through advertising. (It does have some advertising business, and it also gets billions of dollars per year from Google in exchange for being Apple’s default search provider.)

This is the setup. The article itself...

The feature that dare not be named: Apple’s privacy...

It’s been more than a week since Apple’s WWDC 2019 keynote and now it’s time to look back and…[squints to read] realize what a failure it was.

That seems wrong, but that’s what it says here.

Yes, writing for the Forbes contributor network and sock puppet theater, Greg Petro says that “At its Core, Apple Is No Longer Innovative.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Peter and Gary.)

Just this week at Apple’s much touted WWDC 2019, the company unveiled—you guessed it—more mundane updates to its iOS software for iPhone and iPad…

Apple's US iPhones Can All Be Made Outside of...

Apple has a backup plan if the U.S.-China trade war gets out of hand. From a report: The Cupertino, Calif.-based company's primary manufacturing partner has enough capacity to make all iPhones bound for the U.S. outside of China if necessary, according to a senior executive at Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. The Taiwanese contract manufacturer now makes most of the smartphones in the Chinese mainland. China is a crucial cog in Apple's business, the origin of most of its iPhones and iPads as well as its largest international market. But President Donald Trump has threatened Beijing with new tariffs on about $300 billion worth of Chinese goods, an act that would escalate tensions dramatically while levying a punitive tax on Apple's most profitable product.

Hon Hai, known also as Foxconn, is the American giant's most important manufacturing partner. It will fully support Apple if it needs to adjust its production as the U.S.-Chinese trade spat gets grimmer and more...

As noted by 9to5Mac, Apple has cancelled plans to open a large data center in Aabenraa, Denmark. The news was posted on the local town’s website. Apple is looking to sell off the land and leave the site completely.

The tech giant was expected to invest $921 million in a data center that would power the company’s online services for European customers. Originally due to become operational in the second quarter of 2019, it would have been the tech giant’s second data center in the Nordic country to run entirely on renewable energy.

The municipality said “it is completely unexpected for us that today Apple informed us they want to sell their land.” The local representatives were told this was a...

Apple has long aimed to do the right thing, not just the profitable one, on a great many fronts. On tax avoidance, not so much.

Apple could be the good guy here. It could be the one tech company to take a strong stand on paying its dues, rather than using any loophole it can find to minimize the amount of tax it pays.

That would, I suggest, be consistent with the company’s approach to other areas of corporate responsibility …

Apple may have abandoned plans for its AirPower wireless charger, but that doesn’t mean the company has abandoned plans for such a device. The tech giant has filed for a patent (number 10,320,241) for a “wireless charging system with object recognition.”

AirPower was originally announced in September 2017 alongside the iPhone X. It was supposed to be able to charge a Qi-compatible iPhone, an Apple Watch, and a pair of AirPods (in a special wireless charging case) at the same time regardless of where they were placed on the pad. However, there was constant rumors of production, engineering, and manufacturing difficulties. Seems those rumors were right, as Apple announced in March that work on the device was being canceled as, in Apple’s words, “will not achieve our high standards.”
