Why Apple Settled With Qualcomm

Steve Kovach, writing for CNBC:

Its surprise settlement with Qualcomm Tuesday over a years-long
patent spat means it’s now in a position to keep pace with its
competitors to bring a 5G-ready iPhone to market as soon as
this year.

There’s no way there’s going to be a 5G iPhone this year. There’s no way there ever was going to be a 5G iPhone this year — even in a world where Apple and Qualcomm had never gotten into a dispute. It’s too early. The carrier networks aren’t ready, and the chips aren’t efficient enough. And Apple doesn’t make boutique iPhones — they’re not going to do a 5G iPhone that is intended to sell in limited quantities just to say they have a 5G phone. (Samsung, I’m looking at you.)

Report: Apple to combine Find My Friends and Find My...

Where other tech companies seem hell-bent on secretly tracking you and everything you do, Apple may be set to flip the script and give you the ability to track all your stuff.

At least, that seems to be the case if a new report from 9to5Mac is true. Citing “people familiar with its development,” the report claims that Apple is working on a project code-named “GreenTorch” that will combine Find My Friends and Find My iPhone apps. Engineers at Apple are apparently already testing the new app.

The combined app won’t cut any features from the existing apps, and in fact will expand them a little. A new capability called “Find Network” will allow your devices to be tracked even if not connected to a cellular or Wi-Fi network. Presumably, this would work the way Tile trackers do: using an iBeacon-like Bluetooth network of Apple devices.

The iPhone XR was Apple's best-selling smartphone in February, according to Counterpoint Research's monthly U.S. smartphone churn tracker. The XR was responsible for more than 26% of all iPhone sales during the month, notes the research group.

The majority of XR buyers previously used the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus. The iPhone XS Max contributed 13% of Apple iPhone sales and was the second-best-selling smartphone in the US during the month. Previous iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus users were the majority of the XS Max buyers. 

"iPhone 7 Plus owners upgraded to the XS Max more often as they replaced their two-year-old devices with the newest, most expensive model,” says Jeff Fieldhack, research director at Counterpoint Research. “There were also iPhone 8 Plus users who were most likely upgrading due to their yearly upgrade programs. The iPhone XR also created the most the churn from Android to iOS. The majority of...

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global smartphone shipments will reach a modest five million units in 2019. Early 5G smartphone models will be expensive and available in limited volumes. Samsung, LG and Huawei will be the early 5G smartphone leaders this year, followed by Apple next year, according to the research group.

“Less than 1% of all smartphones shipped worldwide will be 5G-enabled this year,” says Ken Hyers, director at Strategy Analytics. “Global 5G smartphone shipments are tiny for now, due to expensive device pricing, component bottlenecks, and restricted availability of active 5G networks.”

Ville Petteri-Ukonaho, senior analyst at Strategy Analytics, adds: “Samsung will be the early 5G smartphone leader in the first half of 2019, due to initial launches across South Korea and the United States. We predict LG, Huawei, Xiaomi, Motorola and others will follow later in...

New York Times:

To demonstrate how easy it is to track people without their knowledge, we collected public images of people who worked near Bryant Park (available on their employers’ websites, for the most part) and ran one day of footage through Amazon’s commercial facial recognition service. Our system detected 2,750 faces from a nine-hour period (not necessarily unique people, since a person could be captured in multiple frames). It returned several possible identifications, including one frame matched to a head shot of Richard Madonna, a professor at the SUNY College of Optometry, with an 89 percent similarity score. The total cost: about $60.

And:

if you’re an adult in America, there’s more than a 50 percent chance that you’re already in a law enforcement facial recognition database, according to researchers at Georgetown.

This is a riveting read.

Rumor: ‘GreenTorch’ app will combine Find My Friends...

Apple is working on a new app — codenamed “GreenTorch” that will replace the Find My Friends and Find My iPhone apps, reports 9to5Mac, quoting unnamed “people familiar with its development.”

The article says tThe new app will have the same features of the two existing apps, but combined into a single app, which will be available on both iOS and on macOS, as a Marzipan app. The article adds that GreenTorch will also include an improved ability to find a user’s devices. Called “Find Network”, the feature allows devices to be tracked even when not connected to Wi-Fi or to a cellular network.

The Marzipan project involves merging the codebase of macOS and iOS apps. Apple plans to allow developers to release universal apps that work across the macOS and iOS  — perhaps later this year.The apps will work with a touchscreen or mouse and trackpad depending on whether it’s running on the...

Reuters: Apple sourcing next gen lidar sensors

Reuters:

Apple Inc has held talks with at least four companies as possible suppliers for next-generation lidar sensors in self-driving cars, evaluating the companies’ technology while also still working on its own lidar unit, three people familiar with the discussions said.

And:

Current lidar systems, including units from Velodyne Inc mounted on Apple’s fleet of self-driving test vehicles, use laser light pulses to render precise images of the environment around the car. But the systems can cost $100,000 and use mechanical parts to sweep the laser scanners across the road.

And:

What is clear from Apple’s interest in cheaper lidar systems is that it wants to control the “perception stack” of sensors, computers and software to drive an autonomous vehicle, regardless of who makes the vehicle, another person familiar with the talks said.

The idea of Apple focusing on that so-called “perception stack”, the core element of any autonomous vehicle...

Why Apple settled with Qualcomm

Bloomberg:

Apple needs chips that will connect the iPhone to the new, fifth-generation wireless networks being introduced now or risk falling behind its rivals. The company had bet on Intel Corp., but recently decided its would-be 5G supplier wasn’t up to the task.

And:

That led Apple back to Qualcomm — and spurred a sudden end to a long-running court fight over patents, component costs and royalties for one of the most critical parts of an iPhone.

This is a well written walkthrough of the sequence. A short read, worth your time.

My absolutely favorite line:

Apple’s decision to cut a deal with Qualcomm was an indictment of Intel’s modem efforts.

Yup.

The birth of MacStories

Federico Viticci:

Later this week on Saturday, April 20, MacStories will turn 10 years old.

It was Monday, April 20, 2009 when, fresh out of a job from which I had gotten fired, I decided to publish the first official post on my self-hosted blog after a few weeks of running a free WordPress.com website. I was 21. My English was terrible and, at the time, MacStories was written in two languages, English and Italian – probably to hide my discomfort as a non-native English speaker.

And:

For the first year, I poured my life into writing MacStories every day and trying to establish my name by reaching out to as many app makers, fellow bloggers, and readers as possible. My girlfriend can confirm this – I was working 15-hour days, including Christmas or my birthday, just to make MacStories happen.

Let the Apple Car speculation roll on. Apple has held talks with at least four companies as possible suppliers for next-generation lidar sensors in self-driving cars, evaluating the companies’ technology while also still working on its own lidar unit,, according to Reuters.

Quoting three unnamed “people familiar with the discussions,” the article says the tech giant is seeking lidar units that would be smaller, cheaper and more easily mass produced than current technology. Reuters says that the sensor effort “means Apple wants to develop the entire chain of hardware to guide autonomous vehicles and has joined automakers and investors in the race to find winning technologies.” It also says the tech giant wants a “revolutionary design.”

Rumor: Apple to release a 4.7-inch ‘iPhone 8’ next...

According to the Economic Daily, a Chinese language site, Apple plans to release a 4.7-inch “iPhone 8” next year. Think iPhone SE, version 2.

The rumor claims the smartphone will be a basic model with no FaceID or TrueDepth camera array. Economic Daily says the iPhone 8 will have an “A13” processor, 128GB of storage, and a single-lens camera.

Chances the rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 90%, although I’m not sure about the Economic Daily’s specs. iPhone sales are slowing (but not tanking, as some pundits would have you believe), so Apple needs a lower-priced option. And a 4.7-inch iPhone 8 would also serve the needs of those who find the current line of Apple’s smartphones too big.

How to disable Live Photos on your iPhone or iPad

Live Photos are a cool but inessential feature of the iOS photography experience that preserve the moments before and after you take a photo, including the sound. They’re great for bringing a particular photo “to life,” and they’re especially excellent for making your own GIFs from photos—but they also take up a lot of storage space. The files are usually twice as big as those for a regular photo. That can be a big problem for your photo storage, considering that Apple keeps Live Photos on by default.

Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to turn the feature off, and you can easily (and temporarily) switch it back on if you want to take a specific shot as a Live Photo. First, I’ll show you how to keep your Camera app from automatically taking Live Photos, then I’ll show you how make Live Photos act like regular photos when you share them with other iOS users.

The concern is that young people can be exposed to nudity within the app and perhaps even be targeted for abuse. However, ByteDance, the maker of the app, said it can’t be held liable for actions of third parties on the platform and that TikTok is simply like any other social media platform.

India isn’t the first country to take action against the TikTok, notes Quartz India. In February, the US Federal Trade Commission fined ByteDance $5.7 million (Rs40 crore) to settle allegations of child privacy law violations. The app has been...

Why iOS apps will make the Mac a better place......

Who knew that a report that Apple was replacing iTunes with new apps brought to the Mac from iOS would open a Pandora’s Box of Mac angst?

But it’s really not that surprising. 2019 promises to be a huge year of change for the Mac, in large part because this fall’s macOS release will open the floodgates to apps originally designed for iOS. When you compare the features of an iTunes (conceived for the Mac of nearly two decades ago) with Music (built for the iPhone and retrofitted for Apple Music), it’s hard not to feel like the Mac is about to get dumbed down.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that stereo sound system drivers are often positioned with respect to a design position of the listener, so that a driver configured to provide a "left" channel is positioned to the listener's left, and another driver configured to provide a "right" channel is positioned to the listener's right. 

Collectively the drivers can provide a virtual stereo sound stage, or “stereo image,”for the listener where the listener can perceive certain sounds as emanating from various directions, including from virtual sound sources. Sounds intended to be heard from the left end of the sound stage can be preferentially provided via a left driver, so that the listener perceives the sounds as emanating from a sound source to...

In a completely unexpected turn of events, Apple and Qualcomm just settled their legal dispute, dropping all litigation. The details from Apple and Qualcomm are brief, but give us the following four key details:

Intel exits 5G smartphone modem market as Apple,...

Intel this afternoon announced that the company would be exiting the 5G smartphone modem business, instead choosing to focus on opportunities for 4G and 5G modems in PCs, internet of things devices, and other data-centric devices. 

The announcement arrived only hours after Apple and Qualcomm reached a settlement and agreed to drop all current litigation against each other.

Intel, in turn, stated that it would honor all current customer commitments for existing 4G smartphone modems, but will not be releasing 5G modems in the smartphone market.

Intel CEO Bob Swan offered the following comments:

“We are very excited about the opportunity in 5G and the ‘cloudification’ of the network, but in the smartphone modem business it has become apparent that there is no clear path to profitability and positive returns,” said Intel CEO Bob Swan. “5G continues to be a strategic priority across Intel, and our team has developed a valuable portfolio of wireless products...

Rumor: Apple working on macOS 10.15 “Sidecar”...

This could be an incredibly handy feature.

The rumor mill has it that Apple is working on a new Mac and iPad display feature to launch with macOS 10.15 later this year.

Previously, Astro HQ came up with a solution, Luna Display, that allows Mac users to use their iPad as an external display. There are many solutions on the market for that, but Luna Display has become the top one given that it’s a hardware product leveraging the power of the GPU so the experience is as seamless as possible.

According to sources close to the story, Apple is working on a new feature in which the new operating system will have a feature that allows users to send any window of any app to an external display. The external display can be an actual external display connected to the Mac or even an iPad.

The new feature, known internally as “Sidecar,” can be accessed via a simple menu. This new menu will be opened by hovering...

Why you should get an Apple Pencil even if you don’t...

Apple’s ads tend to imply that you need to be some kind of artist if you want to buy an Apple Pencil, but it’s great for plenty of other things, even if those things don’t look so hot in the latest TV spot out of Cupertino. Not everyone needs to use an Apple Pencil, but you’ll get a lot of use out of one if you frequently find yourself in the situations below.

A few pointers before we begin. First, as a rule of thumb, if you’ve never found yourself thinking that some iPad activity would be easier if you only had a pen, you probably don’t need an Apple Pencil. Second, there’s a whole range of cheap styluses you can use with an iPad instead of an Apple Pencil for these tasks, but keep in mind that they won’t have Apple’s pressure technology or the Pencil’s sleek design. Many feel like you’re writing with a stubby crayon.

Mass Production of iPhones To Start In India

Apple is poised to begin mass production of iPhones in India this year, according to Foxconn Technology Group Chairman Terry Gou. This marks a big shift for the largest assembler of Apple's handsets that has long concentrated production in China. Bloomberg reports: Gou said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited him to India as his Taiwanese company plans its expansion in the country. Apple has had older phones produced at a plant in Bangalore for several years, but now will expand manufacturing to more recent models. Bloomberg News reported this month that Foxconn is ready to start trial production of the latest iPhones in the country before it starts full-scale assembly at its factory outside the southern city of Chennai.

India has become the fastest-growing smartphone market in the world, while China stagnates and Apple loses share to local competitors such as Huawei Technologies Co. and Xiaomi Corp. Apple has been a minor player in India, in part because of its...

Intel Will Exit 5G Phone Modem Business, Hours After...

Intel announced Tuesday afternoon that it will no longer be working on 5G chips for smartphones, leaving Apple with only one supplier for its iPhones, Qualcomm -- the same company that it was battling in court until midday Tuesday. CNET reports: Intel late Tuesday said it plans to exit the 5G smartphone modem business. It had been working on a processor for Apple, with the chip expected to be in iPhones in 2020. Lately there have been worries the chip wouldn't be ready until iPhones released in 2021. "The company will continue to meet current customer commitments for its existing 4G smartphone modem product line, but does not expect to launch 5G modem products in the smartphone space, including those originally planned for launches in 2020," Intel said in a press release. Its only customer in modems is Apple.

Intel added that it will "complete an assessment of the opportunities for 4G and 5G modems in PCs, internet of things devices and other data-centric devices." It also...

Apple and Qualcomm surprisingly settle their legal...

Just when their legal battle was just beginning the trial phase, Apple and Qualcomm have ironed out their differences in a surprise settlement. The terms of the agreement include the dismissal of all litigation between the two companies as well as any pending cases brought by Apple’s global contract manufacturers, and basically returns the relationship to the way it was before the allegations started flying.

Most notably, Apple has agreed to pay Qualcomm a one-time payment of an undisclosed sum, as well as royalties going forward. Both companies issued short press releases to announce the agreement, but it’s hard to find much good news in it for Apple. Qualcomm is getting paid and keeps Apple as a customer, and there’s no indication that they will be changing their business practices.
