Sony's Xperia phones have increasingly slid into the shadows, as Samsung, Apple and Chinese challengers carve up the smartphone market. Last year, the Xperia 1 got weird. With a 21:9 ratio OLED screen, Sony was going hard on the cinematic appea...

Apple Music beta comes to the web

Colorful and fun. Glad to see this.

Logged in on my MacBook Pro. A single fingerprint, and I was in. Easy-peasy.

As to the look and feel, I liked this layout better than iTunes (I’m on Mojave). And the performance feels rock solid. Great work.

Interesting that the bit in the lower-left corner says “Open in Music”. On my Mac, it launches iTunes. Obviously, this is a reference to the split-up of iTunes in Catalina.

Wondering if there will ever be a direct bridge between the web interface and my HomePod.

Interesting experience. Give it a try.

On the rumored follow-on to the iPhone SE

Start off with this Bloomberg article, titled: Apple Plans Return of Touch ID and New Cheap iPhone.

Some fascinating rumors there, including:

Apple is also working on its first low-cost iPhone since the iPhone SE. That could come out as early as the first half of 2020, the people said. The device would look similar to the iPhone 8 and include a 4.7-inch screen. The iPhone 8 currently sells for $599, while Apple sold the iPhone SE for $399 when that device launched in 2016. The new low-cost phone is expected to have Touch ID built into the home button, not the screen.

Now switch gears to this Daring Fireball take:

The SE debuted about 6 months after the iPhone 6S, with the...

Washington Post: How Apple uses its App Store to...

Old news to anyone who’s followed Apple for any length of time. So old, that the concept has its own Wikipedia page (scroll down to the section “Sherlocked as a term”).

What’s new though:

Developers have come to accept that, without warning, Apple can make their work obsolete by announcing a new app or feature that uses or incorporates their ideas. Some apps have simply buckled under the pressure, in some cases shutting down. They generally don’t sue Apple because of the difficulty and expense in fighting the tech giant—and the consequences they might face from being dependent on the platform.

The imbalance of power between Apple and the apps on its platform could turn into a rare chink in the company’s armor as regulators and lawmakers put the dominance of big technology companies under an antitrust microscope.

Not sure I see a solution though. Do...

Craig Hockenberry: This year’s beta release cycle...

Craig Hockenberry:

The months since WWDC in June have been a terrible experience for both customers and developers alike and the literal center of the chaos was Apple’s iCloud syncing service.

Lest you respond, instantly, with, “But it’s a beta”, read on.

It all started with customers reporting lost Linea sketches in their iCloud Drive. Initial investigations led to a common factor: all of the people affected had installed the iOS 13 beta release.

And when I say lost, I mean really lost. Entire folders were either gone or corrupted. Apple’s mechanism to recover deleted files was of no help. The customers with weird folder duplicates were the “lucky” ones.

The key is Apple’s traditional beta culture: Use the beta on a device you can afford to be without if things go south.

But this year there’s a new, critical lesson. Make sure that test device is not connected to your main iCloud account. Which limits the testing value of a beta, since it...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt to develop drama series at Apple


Variety has learned from sources that Gordon-Levitt is set to star in, write, and executive produce a drama series currently in the works at the nascent streamer titled “Mr. Corman.” It is said to follow an elementary school teacher grappling with adulthood in Los Angeles. Gordon-Levitt would produce under his HitRECord banner with A24 also producing.

Another top show, added value for Apple TV+. Though it might take some time for Apple TV+ to develop a catalog with enough heft to even begin to compete with Disney+ and Netflix, I have no doubt they’ll get there over time. Like opening a restaurant, the key is having enough money to make it through the early days, and Apple has that in spades.

ABI Research: foldable phones, tablets will start...

I remain dubious that Apple plans a “foldable” iPhone or iPad, but I could be wrong.. Smartphones, tablets, and wearables are all expected to see some form of foldable, flexible, or rollable screen technology over the coming years, as vendors try to shake up the markets and stimulate replacement cycles, according to ABI Research

This is despite ongoing issues with several foldable smartphones that were set to enter the market this year, adds the research group. ABI Research forecasts that shipments of smartphones with a foldable, flexible, or rollable display will start gaining traction in 2020 and grow to hit 228 million in 2028. In fact, the number of total devices with the technology will increase from 1.8 million in 2019 to 240 million in 2028, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 72%.

Apple granted patent for inductive charing between...

Next week will see Apple announce new iPhones that, per some rumors, will have inductive charging that will allow your smartphone to share some battery power with accessories such as AirPods.

However, Apple has been granted a patent (number 10,401,089) for “inductive charging between electronic devices” that could kick this up a notch. For example, an iPad could be used to juice up your iPhone.

In the patent info, Apple notes that some electronic devices include one or more rechargeable batteries that may require external power to recharge. Often, these devices may be charged using a common or standardized electrical connector or cable. For example, some devices may be charged using a universal serial bus ("USB") connector or cable. 

However, despite having standardized connectors and cable, each device may require a separate or dedicated power supply to charge. In some cases, having separate power supplies for each device...

Rumor: Apple working on in-display Touch ID system...

Anonymous sources reportedly similar with Apple’s supply chain have stated that the company is working on a Touch ID fingerprint system for the 2020 model iPhones.

A new report claims that Apple is currently testing an iPhone model with a new version of Touch ID that uses sensors underneath the display. Rather than the previously separate home button, or the notch needed for Face ID to work, users would be able to touch their iPhone screen to have it register their fingerprint.

The sources have stated that while this technology is intended for the 2020 iPhones, it may slip to the 2021 releases instead.

Apple is rumored to have been working on in-display Touch ID for some time, a number of recently uncovered patents backing this statement. This rumor has also been backed by noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who claimed that in-display Touch ID could be expected in either the 2020 or 2021 iPhone models.

Apple’s suppliers are rumored to have yet to manage mass-...

Planned Parenthood Direct app launches, will roll...

This is pretty interesting and important.

Planned Parenthood has released its Planned Parenthood Direct app, which allows users to both order birth control as well as UTI treatment from your device. The app will roll out to all 50 states by the end of 2019.

Users will need to fill out some personal and medical information, then hit up to one business day for a clinician to decide whether your case is straightforward enough for a prescription to be written. Some states will require a video chat, and some states may turn down requests or require the patient to see a clinician in person.

The Planned Parenthood Direct app is available for free and requires iOS 10.3 or later to install and run.

Agenda 6 review: Note taking gets supercharged with...

Apps for taking notes are plentiful these days, and often free. Apple Notes is one every Mac and iOS device owner owns but often overlooks, due in large part to its former reputation as a barebones, skeuomorphic scratchpad. Thanks to a slew of recent enhancements like text styling, formatting, attachments, checklists, and tables, Notes is now a pretty capable piece of software.

One thing Apple Notes still can’t do is tightly integrate with calendar events, iCloud or otherwise. Then again, neither can many others, with the exception of Agenda—and once you’ve gotten a taste for this method of organization, you’ll find it hard to return to plain, undated notes.

Apple Plans Return of Touch ID and New Cheap iPhone

Apple is reportedly developing in-display fingerprint technology for as early as its 2020 iPhones, according to Bloomberg. "The technology is in testing both inside Apple and among the company's overseas suppliers, though the timeline for its release may slip to the 2021 iPhone refresh, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing private work." From the report: Apple introduced fingerprint scanning on iPhones in 2013, following its acquisition of AuthenTec Inc., a pioneer in the field. Integrated into the iPhone's home button, the Touch ID system was used for unlocking the device, approving payments and authorizing app downloads -- and it gave Apple a technological edge with its speed and reliability. Touch ID was replaced with face-scanning sensors in 2017 with the iPhone X launch. Branded as Face ID, the new face authentication again put Apple ahead of the competition with a more robust and secure implementation than rivals. The upcoming fingerprint reader would be...

[Sponsor] Kolide: User Focused Security for Teams...

Kolide is a new Slack app that messages employees when their Mac, Windows, or Linux device is not compliant with security best-practices or policy.

With this app, Kolide will notify users or groups when a device is out of compliance along with clear instructions about what is wrong, and step by step instructions to remediate the issue themselves. They can even confirm in real-time that they resolved the problem with an interactive button inside the Slack message!

Unlike most endpoint security solutions, Kolide was designed with user privacy in mind. Your users will know what data is collected about their device, who can see that data, and can even view the full source code of the agent that is run on the device.

Kolide is already used by hundreds of fast growing companies who want to level-up their device security without locking down their devices. Try Kolide’s new product for free for 30 days for your entire fleet by visiting ...

What can you get for a couple billion dollars? Apple hopes to attract some of the best talent in TV and film production, including huge stars and directors, and to lock down the television and movie rights to best-selling books. Though the company has only given us a glimpse at a handful of shows, the Hollywood trade press has uncovered many more through its reporting on deals from casting agents and production companies.

Apple launches Apple Music web app beta

One of Apple Music’s most obvious missing features has been the inability of subscribers to listen to your library, playlists, or radio selections without using the iOS app, Android app, or iTunes (soon to be Apple Music in macOS Catalina). Without a web-based experience, it was harder to play your tunes from computers or mobile devices you don’t own and sharing on social media felt limited.

It was such an obvious missing feature that a recent unofficial web player attracted a couple hundred thousand users.

Some apps have simply buckled under the pressure. The Washington Post: Clue, a popular app women use to track their periods, has risen to near the top of Apple's Health and Fitness category. It could be downhill from here. Apple plans this month to incorporate some of Clue's core functionality such as fertility and period prediction into its own Health app that comes pre-installed in every iPhone and is free, unlike Clue, which earns money by selling subscriptions and services in its free app. Apple's past incorporation of functionality included in other third-party apps has often led to their demise. Clue's new threat shows how Apple plays a dual role in the app economy: provider of access to independent apps and giant competitor to them.

ResearchKit enables apps to create consent forms, tasks, and surveys with customizable modules, while CareKit is focused on enabling developers to build apps that help users manage their medical conditions.

Engineers have been working on a new framework to join Apple’s family of research-related frameworks. According to people familiar with its development, this new framework will be called SensorKit, and allow developers to integrate with the various sensors included in Apple’s devices such as the iPhone and Apple Watch.

Apple Change Causes Scramble Among Private Messaging...

A change Apple is making to improve privacy in an upcoming version of its iPhone operating system has alarmed an unlikely group of software makers: developers of privacy-focused encrypted messaging apps. The Information (paywalled): They warn the change, which is already available in public test versions of iOS 13, could end up undermining the privacy goals that prompted it in the first place. The Information previously reported that the technical change Apple is making to its next operating systems, iOS 13, has sparked concern at Facebook, which believes it will have to make significant modifications to encrypted messaging apps like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp to comply. But a much wider group of developers of encrypted messaging apps -- including Signal, Wickr, Threema and Wire -- is scrambling to overhaul their software so that key privacy features continue to work. Apple told The Information on Wednesday in a statement that it is working with the developers to resolve their...

Apple is testing an in-screen fingerprint reader that could appear in iPhones in 2020 or 2021, a Bloomberg report today said.

The feature would be similar to Touch ID, the fingerprint reader integrated into the iPhone home button starting with the iPhone 5S in 2013. Apple replaced Touch ID with Face ID with the iPhone X in 2017, as the company eliminated the home button in order to expand the screen. But this time, users would be able to use either the fingerprint...

Jennifer Bailey, vice president of Apple Pay, tells CNN’s Chief Business Correspondent Christine Romans that the company is “watching cryptocurrency” as “it has interesting long-term potential.” Among them: the use of Apple Pay for tipping.

Cryptocurrency is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange that uses strong cryptography to secure financial transactions, control the creation of additional units, and verify the transfer of assets. It’s an is an Internet-based medium of exchange which uses cryptographical functions to conduct financial transactions. 

Cryptocurrencies can be sent directly between two parties via the use of private and public keys.  These transfers can be done with minimal processing fees, allowing users to avoid the steep fees charged by traditional financial institutions....

More iPhone naming

Neil Cybart, Above Avalon:

Over the years, iPhone naming has had its ups and downs. There were the awkward names like iPhone 3GS and iPhone XS Max, and then there were strong industry-defining names like iPhone X. Based on the latest rumors, Apple appears to be in the early stages of moving away from an annual iPhone naming cadence altogether.

Interesting read, digs into a pretty complete history of iPhone naming, and follows with possible paths for the coming iPhones. Pairs well with the John Gruber take posted earlier.

I’d like to see Neil take on the entire Apple product line, with thoughts on a global branding strategy.

Editorial: Apple's next hardware play could be...

Apple is thought to be working on Augmented Reality glasses that are perhaps two years out. But in moving the AR experience from the handheld screens of iOS devices to a fixed panel you look through, users will need a new way to navigate AR worlds. Little attention has been given to the role of game controllers in AR navigation, but Apple's patent filings and its recent announcements suggest that its next new play in hardware could be an advanced gaming controller, perhaps even a wearable one.

The square camera bump has been the subject of a great deal of discussion, many expressing distaste for the design, and especially with the asymmetrical triangular camera arrangement within it…

Reddit: My MacBook Pro screen died, so I used...

[VIDEO] Andrew Kroger, Reddit:

It’s done! Following up on a recent post that I made on this sub, my iPad/Macbook hybrid is complete. The method involved defusing the broken LCD screen and backlight from the upper portion of the MacBook’s clamshell, modifying the retina display driver, attaching a magnetic iPad case in-place of the retina display and putting everything back together. In regards to software, I’m using Catalina’s ’Sidecar’ to wirelessly (bluetooth) mirror the once-existent Retina display and ‘keyboard maestro’ to establish the initial connection to the iPad upon booting up.

Check the results, embedded in the main Loop post.

ZipCar rental nightmare: In remote area without cell...

Annie Lowrey, The Atlantic:

Here is the Public Service Announcement part of the story: If you take a vehicle loaned out by Zipcar—a rental service where drivers use RFID cards or a mobile app to open up the car—to an area without cell reception, there’s a chance the car will not work. The doors won’t open, and even if they do, the engine will not start. And because you will be in an area with no cell reception, it might be impossible for you to call for help.

This is a cost of “connected everywhere”. Good story, a bit of a cautionary tale.

Rumor: Apple planning in-screen fingerprint tech for...

According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman and Debby Wu, Apple is developing in-screen fingerprint technology for its 2020 (or perhaps 2021) iPhones.

Quoting unnamed “people familiar with the plans,” the article says this would eliminate the need for additional bezels on the smartphone while retain biometric security. The Bloomberg report says that such iPhones would retain both Touch ID (in its new form) and Face ID.

The idea is that the fingerprint reader will be embedded in the iPhone display, so users could unlock the smartphone by pressing a finger almost anywhere on the screen. Gurman and Wu’s report matches that of analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has predicted an iPhone with both Face ID and in-display Touch ID in 2021. 

Chances the rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (...

In-screen Touch ID could be appearing in iPhones as early as next year, according to a new report today. But while the current report suggests that both Touch ID and Face ID fans will be catered for, that may not remain the case for long.

The debate between the respective fans of Touch ID and Face ID began when Apple launched the iPhone X, the first iPhone to be launched without the fingerprint reader since it made its debut on the iPhone 5S in 2015.

With the iPhone X launch, Apple seemed pretty clear that Face ID was the future of iPhone authentication. It is, says Apple, faster, easier, and more secure than Touch ID…

Patent filing hints that ‘Apple Glasses’ might...

Apple has filed for yet another patent (number 20190273815) that hints at the rumored “Apple Glasses,” a head-mounted, augmented reality/virtual reality headset.

It’s for head-mounted display systems and methods of operation that allow users to couple and decouple a portable electronic device such as a handheld portable electronic device (almost certainly an iPhone) with a separate head-mounted device (e.g., temporarily integrates the separate devices into a single unit) are disclosed. 

The iPhone may be physically coupled to the Apple Glasses such that the portable electronic device can be worn on the user's head. The smartphone may be operatively coupled to the head-mounted device such that they can communicate and operate with one another. Each device may be allowed to extend its features and/or services to the other device for the purpose of enhancing, increasing and/or eliminating redundant functions between the head-mounted device and...

Apple’s newest, largest store in Japan opens Saturday

In the heart of the Marunouchi business district, Apple will open its newest and largest store in Japan across from the historic Tokyo Station this Saturday, Sept. 7.

Apple Marunouchi is Apple’s third store to open in Japan since last April as part of a multi-year retail investment and expansion in the country. Customers in Japan now have more space to discover Apple products, participate in a Today at Apple session or seek advice from a Genius, says Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail + People. 

Apple’s fifth store in Tokyo features a facade with two-story vitrine windows made from specially cast aluminum to obtain three-dimensional rounded corners. Described as the first of their kind, the windows allow the street life of the surrounding area to connect with the store. Inside, native bamboo lines the window openings to bring the outside in. The double-height atrium in the heart of the store connects both levels and is...
