the week in apple news: ios 10.3 public beta, apple vs. qualcomm, night shift fo


india is now one of apple’s fastest growing markets, with iphone sales up over 50 percent in fiscal 2016 compared to the previous year. the high growth comes largely from a small user base of its products in the country, but with recent rollouts of 4g networks, the company expects more demand for its devices.also:apple ships 2.5m iphones in india during 2016, boosted by iphone 7 release (appleinsider)






for apple’s iphone sales, size matters

apple's new patent is a hi-tech vaporizer


apple wants to revolutionize several industries, from auto to tv. could vaping also be on that list or is the company just blowing smoke?apple has been granted a new patent to develop a hi-tech vaporizer. the patent published by the u.s. patent and trademark office describes an “apparatus” that uses proprietary apple technology to create a consistent vaporization rate, meaning more liquid is vaporized and not as much is lost to cooling. apple originally filed for this patent in june 2016.it’s unclear whether we’ll ever be inhaling from an ivaporizer, however. apple’s patent does not mention the exact use of the vaporizer or what chemicals would be vaporized within. so, let’s speculate that apple could potentially be developing an e-cigarette or a marijuana vaporizer. it wouldn’t be the fir






ios 10.3 with find my airpods enters public beta


just two days after apple unleashed ios 10.3 to developers, members of the public beta program have access to it too. anyone who wants to kick the tires of the first public beta can join the beta program by visiting beta.apple.com and signing in with your apple id.the big selling point of ios 10.3 is a great new feature for airpods owners, letting them locate a misplaced airpod by firing up the find my iphone app and having the airpods play a sound. the sound plays if the airpods are anywhere in bluetooth range of any of your apple devices (think macs, ipads, iphones) signed into the same icloud account. if your airpods are out of range or totally dead, the find my iphone app can let you know where they were last “seen” by bluetooth. it’s pretty handy.that isn’t the only thing new in ios 1






blackpods: apple's airpods, only black


at $159, apple's airpods aren't exactly cheap, yet they're quite the bargain when you consider the wireless earbuds options. if only they could come in a color to match your black iphone 7, jet or otherwise.well, now they can, sort of, courtesy of a company called blackpods. jackpot!blackpods (apparently both the name of the company and the end product) will take your ordinary shiny white airpods, subject them to a 'three-phase approach' that yields a 'luxurious scratch-resistant finish', all for the nominal fee of $99. alternatively, you can buy the airpods straight from blackpods and get the blackpods for $249 - sounds like $9 worth of savings. that is, if you don't already own a pair.mind you, there's a waiting list you need to join at this point, so you can't order the blackpods right

hbo go for apple tv finally adds single sign-on support, plus tv app integration


hbo go and netflix have been noticeably absent from apple tv’s tv app and its single sign-on feature, but today hbo is getting on board with both. the hbo go app for tvos and ios has been updated so you can use your stored cable login to access content without having to enter your username and p word yet again. and now hbo go shows will appear in the tv app, which apple designed as a central database for your favorite streaming apps. that means you won’t have to open hbo go to find new stuff to watch. with this new integration, the tv app will pull content from hbo go and display what you left off watching or recommended shows and movies. hbo go is a free app that you can install in the tvos and ios app stores, but you will need a cable subscription to watch anything. the app is separa






amazon's open alexa takes on apple's closed homekit initiative


why it matters to you the home automation market is creating a choice between fewer but more-secure apple homekit devices, and the more open amazon alexa.apple’s homekit serves as the foundation of its own unique approach to home automation technology. homekit is a set of software tools that developers and device manufacturers can use to build solutions tying together various smart devices like lighting, appliances, and home security systems.homekit has been fairly successful, with a number of partners making a wide range of home automation products using apple’s platform, and it benefits from being the first to have been built into a popular operating system in ios 10. however, competition from competitors like amazon’s alexa and the brand-new google home has been fierce, and apple’s usu






apple, openai join ‘partnership on ai’ consortium


back in september 2016, amazon, facebook, ibm, google, and microsoft created an artificial intelligence-focused consortium to discuss new a nces and establish best practices in ai technology. apple and openai were two of the missing key players, both of which have now joined the consortium.apple’s role inside the ai consortiumeven though apple was one of the first to make “ai istants” a mainstream idea that would then quickly be adopted by other companies, lately it has looked like apple is falling behind in ai technology.part of the reason for that is that, unlike many other companies trying to develop ai as quickly as possible, apple doesn’t want to do it by collecting ever more data on its customers. the company has made privacy a competitive a ntage for its products, and it can’t easil






apple has allegedly begun removing iranian ios apps from the app store


reports coming out of iran suggest that apple has allegedly started removing ios apps originating from the country’s startups and developers. prior to this, apple had, in a limited manner, opened up its app store to iranians in september 2016 and appeared to be gradually lifting some of the limitations, periodically, since then.according to credible tech news site techrasa, the biggest iranian e-commerce service, digikala, which has millions of users, had its app removed from the app store just a few days ago.while there is no official app store available for the territory of iran, many companies registered their apps as being outside of iran to be able to get onto the store.digikala uses the shaparak payment system which is completely isolated from international systems, so would in theor

apple collaborates with rivals to a nce ai research


apple has joined rivals as it takes a step ahead to a nce research and development of artificial intelligence technologies. after months of collaborating, apple is joining the partnership on ai, with other founding members including google, ibm, microsoft, facebook, and amazon. the partnership of ai was founded in september last year to also steer debate on best practices on ai. the group believes ai could help in the areas of health care, transportation, and automation in factories. apple's most visible ai technology is siri, a voice istant that can answer questions. but a larger ai strategy is still a subject of speculation. microsoft, facebook, ibm, amazon, and google have well established ai strategies. speech and recognition are well-known use cases for ai. apple will likely impl

icloud is one of apple’s biggest challenges in 2017


apple is fond of talking about its secret sauce, about the things only it can do because of its unprecedented combination of hardware, software, and services. but for all that it has been very successful with its strategy of making the whole widget, from soup to nuts, it’s pretty clear that all three of those areas aren’t exactly on equal footing. hardware, sure. the company’s been making computers since the late ’70s, and it’s never seriously moved away from that—let’s not talk about the awkward fumbling of the clone years. likewise its software, which has gone from revolutionary operating system to also-ran back around to venerable and respected veteran of the computer industry. but then there’s services. services have and continue to be a weak spot for the company, and its biggest chall

pokémon go on apple watch vs. pokémon go plus: which should you wear?


as a location-based game, pokémon go is perfect for when you’re on your commute, walking to a store, or just out and about. however, there’s one big h le to the experience: the need to have the app open and on your screen to track distance, ding nearby pokéstops, and try to catch pokémon. that makes it difficult to play when you are, for example, holding the hand of a small child, carrying bags, or just simply trying to watch where you’re walking. the pokémon go plus, released in september, helps with a lot of that. it’s a tiny wearable device, worn around the wrist or clipped onto clothes, that buzzes and lights up any time you’re near a pokémon or pokéstop, and can automatically snag items or try to catch the creature with a press of a on. it’ll also track all of your distance when act
