Comment: Analysts half-right about AAPL’s Q3 … but...

Prior to yesterday’s earnings call, analysts were united in one view on AAPL’s Q3 – that whatever the numbers might be, they were going to be affected by the coronavirus crisis, so we shouldn’t read too much into them.

The assumption was that disrupted supply-chains, store closures and an economic downturn would all hit sales of Apple products. It turned out they were half-right … but very wrong!

iPhone 12 Launch Set For Delay, Apple Confirms

Apple usually releases new smartphones in September. However, it looks like we’re going to have to wait just a little longer for the iPhone 12. Chief Financial Officer, Luca Maestri broke the news during Thursday’s earnings call.  “As you know, last year we started selling new iPhones in late September,”  Mr. Maestri said. “This year, we project supply to be available a few weeks later.”

iPhone 12 Delay Rumors Turn Out to be True

In a way, this should come as no surprise. We’ve been hearing rumors of production delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic for a while now. However, a top Apple exec actually making the admission public at this stage is still significant.

It’s not the first time an iPhone has been delayed either, although it is the first time an entire range has been...

How to use Voice Control in iOS 13

iOS 13 introduces Voce Control, a feature that allows you to control your iPhone without touching it. To activate you:

Open the Settings app.

Tap Accessibility.

Toggle the Voice Control button to On.

The plethora of commons are listed by category. Tapping one will show you all of the different accepted phrases that will trigger a specific action.

You can add your own commands by using the Create New Commands option within the Customize Commands page.  Finally...

Five ways iOS 14 makes your AirPods better

Software-based headphones are a double-edged sword. On the one hand, a software update can worsen an otherwise perfectly-functioning accessory—some AirPods Pro firmware updates have had users complain of reduced noise reduction or battery life issues. On the other hand, your accessory can get better over time with new features and improved functionality.

That’s exactly what’s happening with AirPods in iOS 14 (and Apple’s other fall operating system updates like macOS Big Sur, tvOS 14, and watchOS 7). If you own AirPods or AirPods Pro, you’ll find they work better with your other Apple gear. Here are the five big improvements coming this fall to the way AirPods work your other Apple products.

One of these quarters, Apple’s going to announce financial results that don’t result in some sort of record. Perhaps as soon as next quarter, even. But on Thursday, Apple announced the results of its financial third quarter of 2020—and they were an all-time third quarter record. Literally every measurable category went up, year over year. It was so sunny a set of results that Apple CEO Tim Cook seemed almost embarrassed to be reporting such huge growth amid a global pandemic and some powerful social upheaval in the United States.

The president of the United States, on, of course, Twitter (random capitalization and frenetic punctuation sic):

With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is

In 1845, Congress decided that Election Day would be the first
Tuesday after the first Monday in November. If Trump wants to
change that, he has to convince Congress — a likely impossible

For its fiscal 2020 third quarter that ended June 27, Apple saw growth across all of its hardware, software, and services lines. In fact, the company grew revenue in every product category and in each geographic segment.

Macs and iPads were two of the biggest winners during the period. Mac sales were up to US$7.1 billion for compared to $5.82 in quarter three of 2019. The iPad saw revenue of $6.6 billion up from 2019's $5.02 billion.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a conference call with analysts that these revenues were reached in spite of significant supply constraints that limited the availability of certain Macs and iPads. However, he added that the company is working hard to get more of those products to customers, so Apple should see continued growth in the fourth quarter. One of the factors contributing to this is that more folks are working at home and buying computers and tablets.

It’s hard not to find a bright spot in Apple’s third-quarter earnings. Not only did the company beat expectations with revenue of nearly $60 billion and an 11-percent growth over last year, it also saw a sales bump across every product it sells.

The Mac enjoyed the biggest leap, buoyed by work-from-home orders for many businesses around the world.

Apple has reported revenue earnings of $59.7 billion for the third quarter of 2020, beating Wall Street estimates, in a quarter where the company continues to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.Overall revenue for Apple is up 11% from Q3 2019, when it reported a record-setting $53.8 billion.

Apple Halved App Store Fee To Get Amazon Prime Video...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bloomberg: Apple agreed in 2016 to halve its App Store fee for Amazon as part of a deal to put the e-commerce giant's Prime Video app on Apple's mobile devices and TV set-top box. Eddy Cue, an Apple senior vice president, and Amazon Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos negotiated directly on the deal, according to emails released Wednesday as part of a congressional hearing on anticompetitive behavior. The companies agreed to a 15% revenue share for customers who signed up through the app and no revenue share for users who already subscribed via Amazon or elsewhere, the emails showed.

The deal, announced in December 2017, also allowed Amazon's video service to integrate with Apple's voice-activated digital assistant, Siri, and the iPhone maker's TV app, which launched in 2016. In addition, the agreement gave Apple a 15% cut of subscriptions to Amazon Prime partners like Showtime for users who signed up originally through Apple. Apple...

Apple FY20 Third Quarter results show no impact due...

Apple just released its fiscal year 2020 third quarter financial results, and the company once again “knocked it out of the park” — even with a global pandemic taking place.

The company reported $59.7 billion in revenue (up 11%), split up between product lines with $26.4 billion from iPhone sales, $13.2 billion from services, $6.5 billion from “other products”, $6.6 billion from iPad, and $7.1 billion from Mac.

Apple is also announcing a 4 to 1 stock split, the first in six years and the fifth in the company’s history. Each Apple shareholder of record at the close of business on August 24, 2020 will receive three additional shares for every share held on the record date, and trading will begin on a split-adjusted basis on August 31, 2020.

“Apple’s record June quarter was driven by double-digit growth in both Products and Services and growth in each of our geographic segments,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “In uncertain times...

Apple Emails Reveal Internal Debate on Right to...

Tim Cook didn't reveal anything new during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday. But emails his company shared with the committee spoke volumes. These internal discussions reveal that what looks like Apple's united front against Right to Repair is really an internal debate, rife with uncertainty. From a report: The New York Times editorial in favor of Right to Repair last April set off a fire alarm inside Apple's public relations team. When Binyamin Appelbaum reached out to research the issue, Apple's VP of communications said in an internal email that "We should get him on the phone with [Apple VP Greg] Joz [Joswiak] or [Senior VP] Phil [Schiller]." That spawned an instant debate. "The larger issue is that our strategy around all of this is unclear. Right now we're talking out of both sides of our mouth and no one is clear on where we're headed."

The emails show the high profile of Right to Repair inside Apple as leaders debate how to respond to a...

Google's Web App Plans Collide With Apple'...

Google and Apple, which already battle over mobile operating systems, are opening a new front in their fight. How that plays out may determine the future of the web. From a report: Google was born on the web, and its business reflects its origin. The company depends on the web for search and advertising revenue. So it isn't a surprise that Google sees the web as key to the future of software. Front and center are web apps, interactive websites with the same power as conventional apps that run natively on operating systems like Windows, Android, MacOS and iOS. Apple has a different vision of the future, one that plays to its strengths. The company revolutionized mobile computing with its iPhone line. Its profits depend on those products and the millions of apps that run on them. Apple, unsurprisingly, appears less excited about developments, like web apps, that could cut into its earnings.

The two camps aren't simply protecting their businesses. Google and Apple have...

How to Emulate Mac OS 8 on your Modern Mac

Most Mac users today never experienced the fun and frustration of using the pre-2001 Mac OS 8 operating system on a Motorola 680X0 or PowerPC-based Mac. Thanks to developer Felix Rieseberg, a 68k Mac emulator called Basilisk II by Christian Bauer and others, and a compiler called Emscripten by James Friend, you can now run a virtual 1991 Mac Quadra 900 on your current Mac.

Rieseberg starts his Github description of what he calls simply “Macintosh.js” (download link) on a jovial note: “This is Mac OS 8, running in an Electron app pretending to be a 1991 Macintosh Quadra. Yes, it’s the full thing. I’m sorry.”

The entire emulator was written in JavaScript (hence the .js extension), and includes folders full of software from the time, including demos of Adobe products (sadly, I remember this version of Adobe Premiere all too well…) and a few games...

The Congressional hearing on big tech antitrust matters on Wednesday was an embarrassment, and not a single governmental official there had the ability, will, or both, to bring any of the CEOs on hand to task.The very best you can say about Wednesday's hearing is that it was bipartisan. But you can only say that because Democrats and Republicans alike displayed equal ignorance, and favored their own political careers instead of doing the job they said they were there for.Whether you think Apple, Google, Facebook, and Amazon are shiny-clean saints, slightly murky figures, or outright criminal, it doesn't matter. If there's anything to get away with, they got away with it — and that was it, that latest round was over with nobody but the tech CEOs scoring any points.

Apple has another antitrust charge on its plate. Messaging app Telegram has joined Spotify in filing a formal complaint against the iOS App Store in Europe -- adding its voice to a growing number of developers willing to publicly rail against what they decry as Apple's app "tax." From a report: A spokesperson for Telegram confirmed the complaint to TechCrunch, pointing us to this public Telegram post where founder, Pavel Durov, sets out seven reasons why he thinks iPhone users should be concerned about the company's behavior. These range from the contention that Apple's 30% fee on app developers leads to higher prices for iPhone users; to censorship concerns, given Apple controls what's allowed (and not allowed) on its store; to criticism of delays to app updates that flow from Apple's app review process; to the claim that the app store structure is inherently hostile to user privacy, given that Apple gets full visibility of which apps users are downloading and engaging with.

Mark Gurman, Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. agreed in 2016 to halve its App Store fee for Amazon.com Inc. as part of a deal to put the e-commerce giant’s Prime Video app on Apple’s mobile devices and TV set-top box.

Eddy Cue, an Apple senior vice president, and Amazon Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos negotiated directly on the deal, according to emails released Wednesday as part of a congressional hearing on anticompetitive behavior. The companies agreed to a 15% revenue share for customers who signed up through the app and no revenue share for users who already subscribed via Amazon or elsewhere, the emails showed.

And:

Apple generally receives a 30% cut for the first year of an app’s subscriptions made through the platform. That fee drops to 15% after the first year.

And:

“That is not correct,” Cook said when asked if some developers are treated differently. “We treat every developer the same.”

Google One app now lets you backup your iPhone,...

Google blog:

Last year, we launched automatic phone backup for members on Android devices. So no matter what happens to your phone, you won’t lose the important stuff like texts, contacts and apps, and photos and videos.
To bring this peace of mind to more people, we’re making some Google One features—phone backup and a new storage manager tool—free for Google users wherever Google One is available. You can back up your devices and clean up your files across Google Photos, Google Drive, and Gmail—all in the new Google One app for Android and iOS.

Two things leap out at me:

First, this feels like a push to expand Google’s pay-for-storage business. You get 15Gb for free, but once you buy into the model, you’ll inevitably want more storage, which means more money flowing to Google, less to Apple.

Second, what are the privacy rules here? I’ve not found specifics yet, but before you go down this road, be sure to read the EULA and know if Google has...
