Apple TV shipping times slip to 1-2 weeks ahead of...


Ahead of Apple’s WWDC in June and an expected Apple TV refresh, shipping times for its current generation Apple TV have just slipped from in stock to 1-2 weeks. Apple’s estimates for shipping Apple TV from its online store often jump between being “in stock” and “1 day”, but a longer delay in shipping could signal Apple’s intent to introduce a refreshed Apple TV in the near future.
We reported earlier this year that...

We’ve already seen the Apple Watch get torn apart by iFixit, giving us an inside look at the Taptic Engine, Digital Crown, and (mostly) battery, and now ABI Research has gone a level further and opened up the custom designed S1 chip that is the brains of the Apple Watch…
As part of its Teardowns Market Research effort, ABI illustrates each component packed into the tiny, weather resistant module including WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC radios.
The photo also reveals 512 MB of RAM sourced from Elpida, 8GB of flash storage sourced from SanDisk/Toshiba, and the integrated accelerometer/gyroscope sensor. The real brains of the S1 chip can...

Apple, IBM team with Japan Post to address needs of...

Tim Cook recently appeared in Japan with Japan Post CEO Taizo Nishimuro and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty to discuss a collaboration that will benefit Japan's growing aging population.

Nishimuro's Post is developing iPad solutions that are "very easy for seniors to use," and intends to use help from IBM to create analytics and cloud services to support those apps. Without getting too specific, the group announced they'll be making quality of life apps with a focus on accessibility, as well as apps to address accessibility concerns that haven't been addressed yet. Finally, the collaborators will address delivering these apps to elderly customers. 

Our take on the news

It's great to see such powerful and high-profile companies addressing accessibility and the needs of seniors. I'm not sure what WiFi coverage is like in rural Japan. I hope elderly customers in those areas have an opportunity to benefit,...

Duet Dock: Apple Watch and iPhone in perfect harmony

Even before the Apple Watch started shipping last week, several products aimed at charging your iPhone and Watch at the same time were touted from several different accessory manufacturers. The Duet Dock, currently on Kickstarter, won't be here until August, but looks like a solid competitor to other products we're seeing. 

Machined from aluminum, Duet uses a design similar to those we've seen from other manufacturers -- it has an elevated "arm" onto which you can place your Watch for charging, as well as a dock for an iPhone. The two parts are held securely together with neodymium magnets but can be separated if desired. The Watch band is wrapped around the arm, which makes it less susceptible to movement. I think this is a good idea -- my cats have decided that a Watch on its charging puck is a...

Doblet batteries on demand: Today SF, tomorrow the...

You've probably never heard of Doblet, but if you live in San Francisco the name is going to become very important to you. The company is starting the first network of batteries on demand for recharging your smartphone, placing doblets (quick-charge battery packs) where you recharge -- in restaurants, bars and cafes.

The company now has doblets in about a hundred locations and expects to expand to about 1,000 Bay Area venues soon. Backed by Y Combinator, Doblet wants to expand to New York, Chicago, Boston, Miami and Toronto. Not only will your favorite watering hole or eatery have doblets available, but the company wants to place them at hotels, stadiums, airports, and in Lyft and Uber cars.

To use the service and find out where the nearest doblet is waiting for you, just...

Rumor: Apple Watch rollout slowed by faulty Taptic...



This may be part of the reason for the delay/long shipping time for your Apple Watch.
A report on Wednesday claims Apple discovered a serious flaw in certain vibrator mechanisms that power Apple Watch’s Taptic Engine, prompting completed units to be scrapped just prior to launch.
Citing sources close to the story, a Wall Street Journal report stated that an unknown number of haptic feedback motors built by AAC Technologies Holdings broke down during reliability testing shortly after mass production of the Apple Watch kicked off in February. AAC Technologies has functioned as the primary supplier for the the feedback motors.

The report also matches statements...

Early Looks Inside Apple Watch's S1 Chip...

Since the Apple Watch's initial unveiling last September, Apple has touted the S1 chip that serves as the brains of the device, with the company noting is has essentially packed an entire computer onto a single ultra-compact chip that is encapsulated in resin to help protect it from the elements. iFixit was unable to delve into the S1 itself in the firm's initial teardown of the Apple Watch, and Chipworks offered an early look at the chip's internals starting x-ray imaging, but now ABI Research has more fully deconstructed the S1 and identified a number of its components. ABI's photo shows the center of the S1 dominated by the main processor carrying part number APL 0778, with 4...

Rumor: Apple Store app to arrive for Apple Watch “...



It won’t be long before you can shop for Apple Store items via your Apple Watch.
Sources have stated that Apple is completing its work on a version of the Apple Store app for the new wearable device. The app has not been given a firm release date beyond “soon” and will be part of an application update for the iPhone and iPad.

Given that the Apple Watch lacks a keyboard, more complicated orders will need to take place on the iPhone or iPad app.
It’s also been stated that Apple will ask employees to push Apple Store app installations for the Apple Watch to customers this summer, when the Watch goes on sale in Apple’s own stores.
Until then, retail employees will...

Apple Watch Edition suddenly looks cheap as Marc...

If you wanted to get your hands on something (partly) designed by Marc Newson, the Apple Watch is probably the cheapest option out there. Even the $17,000 top-of-the-range Edition model might look a little more reasonable after learning that a Newson-designed lounge chair just sold at a London auction for $3.7M.
Still, when you’re laying out a few million on a chair, you can at least be confident it’s the most comfortable chair in the world, right? Apparently not: Newson told the BBC that it was “not really meant to be comfortable.”
Newson, a close friend of Jony Ive, joined Apple last year to work on a number of projects, among them a special edition...

Tattoos Found To Interfere With Apple Watch Sensors

An anonymous reader writes: A number of early Apple Watch adopters have complained that their tattoos cause interference with many of the new product's key features. According to multiple tattooed sources, inked wrists and hands can disrupt communication with the wearable's sensors installed in the underside of the device leading to malfunction. Owners of Apple Watch have taken to social media to voice their frustration using the hashtag #tattoogate and sharing their disappointment over the newly discovered Apple flaw. One user reported that the Watch's lock system did not disable as it should when the device was placed on a decorated area of skin – forcing those affected to constantly enter their security pins. A further source suggested that notification alerts would fail to 'ping' as they are supposed to, and that heart rate monitoring differed significantly between tattooed and non-tattooed wrist readings.

iPad Continues to Lead Declining Tablet Market in...

The latest numbers from market research firm IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker reveal that Apple continues to be the largest vendor in a declining tablet market, shipping 12.6 million iPads in the first quarter of 2015 to capture a 26.8% share of the global tablet market. Apple maintained the top position despite facing a 22.9% decline in tablet shipments compared to the year-ago quarter. Samsung was the second largest tablet vendor with 9 million tablet shipments in the first quarter, good for 19.1% market share in the global tablet market and a 16.5% year-over-year decline. Lenovo, Asus and LG Electronics rounded off the top five, with 2.5 million, 1.8 million and 1.4 million global tablet shipments in the first quarter respectively for a combined 12.2% market share.

Apple Watch as fitness tracker: Putting Activity and...

No one is going to buy an Apple Watch just to replace her (much cheaper) fitness tracker, but if you shell out $350+ for Apple’s latest device, it needs to perform better than a Fitbit, Jawbone, or Basis Peak. Who’s going to strap two bands to their wrist to count steps? Fortunately the Apple Watch isn’t just a capable health and fitness band: It’s downright amazing, though, like every other facet of the watch, it has room for improvement.Apple Watch’s health and fitness features were what sold me on the watch to begin with, so I had high expectations. I put the device’s native Activity and Workout apps through their paces on outdoor runs and gym workouts during my first week with the watch and plan to fold third-party fitness apps into my regimen down the line. I’ll revisit this in future stories....

Quick Tip – Changing ComputerName Before...

If you are in an AD environment and computer names come from somewhere else in your organization, it may be inconvenient when trying to quickly prepare a new machine. DeployStudio has a form workflow step to set some information you’d like customized for the computer, including the local name(for Bonjour) and computer name(for Apple Remote Desktop). Some AD binds dynamically append the search domain to the local name, or folks explicitly set that in some type of firstboot action, which I do with Outset. However, if there’s a lag between when the computer arrives to be prepared (or, I know it’s passeé, imaged) and when a network hostname is assigned, you can still let DeployStudio run everything like normal but change it before the finalize step, where domain binding actually happens.
While netbooted or otherwise going through your workflow in the DeployStudio Runtime, when prompted for a name in the workflow, just use a...

Watch, Apple Watch

When You Were Young and Your Heart Was an Open Book

Regular readers of this column are well aware of my affinity for the James Bond movies. I’ve been a fan for as long as I can remember. As a kid growing up in the late ’70s and early ’80s, I was a staunch Roger Moore fan. I loved the Connery films too, but they felt old, and as a kid, “old” is not cool. That perspective applied even to their watches. Roger Moore wore digital watches; Sean Connery wore mechanicals. Digital watches were cool; analog watches were old-fashioned.

Today, I’ve come to my senses, and I know that Connery was and always will be the definitive James Bond, and his Rolex Submariner — reference 6538 — the definitive Bond watch. The coolest of the cool. But Moore’s Bond’s digital watches were cool, too. Connery drove the most...

Tattooed Apple Watch owners report sensor troubles

The Apple Watch is slowly but surely making its way into the world, but less than a week after the first devices landed on the front steps of lucky pre-orderers, there’s already a problem—sort of.The watch reportedly has trouble sensing it’s on your skin if you have a heavily pigmented tattoo sleeve, according to Reddit users. This means the watch constantly locks up if you have it set to lock when it’s not on your wrist, and it doesn’t tap you when notifications come in. People who are experiencing the problem have tried turning off wrist detection, which allows alerts to come through, but turning off that setting also prevents Apple Pay from working, so it’s a less-than-ideal solution.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

During its Wednesday earnings call, Apple rival Samsung Electronics reported net profit of 4.63 trillion won ($4.35 billion) for the January to March quarter, a 39% drop from its net profit of 7.49 trillion won in the year ago quarter. A sizable portion of the lost profit came from Samsung's mobile division, which brought in 2.74 trillion won ($2.5 billion) in the first quarter of 2015, vs. 6.43 trillion won in the first quarter of 2014. Despite the year over year profit loss, Samsung's earnings release highlighted its quarter over quarter improvement and pointed towards increased sales of middle-end smartphones including the Galaxy A series.

If you're still waiting for your Apple Watch order to arrive, the Wall Street Journal has someone for you to blame: Taptic Engine components manufactured by AAC Technologies Holdings Inc. "started to break down over time," a manufacturing defect that "people familiar with the matter" say caused Apple to throw out some watches that had already been built.
Components from another supplier, Nidec Corp., haven't been faulty, but it will apparently take time for Nidec to ramp up production and catch up with demand. Neither AAC nor Nidec provided a comment for the Journal's story.
The Taptic Engine is a key part of the Apple Watch—it's what makes it vibrate when the watch wants your attention. Though many phones and tablets from other companies have used similar haptic feedback for a while now, Apple has only started to deploy it...

Wearables Wednesday: Everything you need to know...

Today we’re going to focus a bit on how to set up notifications for your various apps on the Apple Watch. Properly setting notifications can make or break your Apple Watch experience, since getting too many of them can be even more annoying than having to dig an iPhone out of your pocket every time something dings or buzzes. 

Responding to notifications

The way notifications work on the Apple Watch, they’re displayed as soon as they arrive. If you don’t look at them immediately, the Watch saves them for later viewing.

You’ll know if you have unread notifications to view if there is a red dot at the top of the watch face. To look at those notifications, just swipe down on the face. If you have an iOS device like an iPhone or iPad, you’re probably already familiar with Notification Center, which are also accessed by swiping down from the top of your screen.

Live notifications get your attention by either making a noise or using the haptic...

Apple Watch rollout slowed by faulty Taptic Engines...

The Wall Street Journal reports that the limited initial roll out of the Apple Watch was slowed by supply manufacturing issues concerning the Taptic Engine. The report claims that after mass production of the device began in February, reliability testing showed that some of the Taptic Engines supplied by AAC Technologies Holdings began to break down after use.

The Taptic Engine was created by Apple to produce the sensation of being tapped on the wrist as a less intrusive way of notifying the user. The engine uses a motor to move a small rod back and forth, which creates the feeling of tapping. The Taptic Engine also plays a role in sending your heartbeat to other Apple Watch users. KGI noted issues of the production of the...

A key component of the Apple Watch, the Taptic Engine, was made by two separate suppliers, and the devices created by one of Apple's suppliers was "found to be defective."After mass production began in February, reliability testing revealed that some taptic engines supplied by AAC Technologies Holdings Inc., of Shenzhen, China, started to break down over time, the people familiar with the matter said. One of those people said Apple scrapped some completed watches as a result.Apple was unable to use the Taptic Engines from the supplier in Shenzhen, China, but a those produced by a second supplier in Japan did not have the same issue. The majority of Taptic Engine...

Earlier this year, Microsoft debuted a new browser designed to succeed Internet Explorer. At the time, it was still under development with the code name Project Spartan, but at today's BUILD conference for developers, Microsoft shared additional details on the new browser and unveiled its name: Microsoft Edge. According to Microsoft, the Edge name refers to being on the edge of consuming and creating. Microsoft is calling Edge "a browser built for doing," with a simple, no-frills design and access to tools for enhancing the browsing experience. Edge has built-in note taking capabilities, letting users annotate, draw, and take notes right within the browser, and then share those website notes with friends. Microsoft says that Edge uses "blazing fast core technology," with more details available on the speed enhancements in the future. Edge includes a distraction-free reading mode and a tab page for...

Microsoft held its annual BUILD conference for developers this morning, where it made several announcements that may be of interest to Mac and iOS users. First off, the company announced cross-platform add-ins that will deeply integrate third-party apps and services into multiple versions of Office, including Office for iOS. Microsoft's add-ins (which can be thought of as plug-ins) will enable a range of third-party services to integrate with Office on Windows, iOS, Android, and presumably Mac when the new Office 2016 is released. For example, Uber might be built into Outlook, letting users call for rides directly from their calendar appointments. Another example shown on stage was PicHit, an app offering a photo marketplace within the PowerPoint app. Uber in Outlook, image via The Verge The implementation sounds similar to...

Developers will be able to feed their existing Objective-C code into a new software package and have it converted to work on the upcoming PC operating system.
At least, that’s how Microsoft is pitching it, though the whole process is a bit more complex. Essentially Windows 10 will ship with APIs that mirror the expected behavior of many iOS APIs, and this new conversion tool will help developers swap out iOS code for matching Windows code.

Because Windows 10 will be the operating system powering...

OneNote has been my go to tool ever since I discovered its power eight years ago.

The best Mac and iPad keyboards

Keyboards are important — so important that many people won’t “work” on their iPads without real keys to type on. No one complained when desktop mice gave way to laptop trackpads, or when trackpads evolved into tablet touchscreens, but the switch from physical to virtual keyboards has been met with plenty of resistance… specifically because virtual keyboards offer no resistance. There’s something about the responsive, up and down movement of actual keys, known as “travel,” that people clearly prefer over tapping on completely flat glass.
I’ve tested a lot of keyboards, and since I rely upon them professionally every day, I have some strong opinions as to the best options for different types of Mac and iPad users. You might be surprised by my advice, as it bucks a couple of Apple’s trends (“smaller!” “thinner!”), but if you’re like me, you’ll be a much happier typist if you “think different” on this topic than the folks in Cupertino…

Does not Commute is a driving game that tasks you with navigating a car from point A to point B. The car drives forward automatically, and you tap the right side of your screen to turn right, or the left side to turn left.
It sounds simple, and that’s because it is. After you successfully guide your first car across the neighborhood to its exit point, you’ll be asked to do the same with a second car with new starting and ending points.

If you have tattooed wrists and are thinking about ordering an Apple Watch, you may want to try one first. A Reddit thread is reporting that the watch can fail to read heartbeats, or even fail to detect skin contact at all, on some people with heavily-tattooed wrists. This has been backed-up by some Twitter users.
The issue isn’t affecting everyone with tattoos, and reports seem to suggest that solid areas of darker inks – like red and black – and most likely to be affected. The issue is specific to tattoo inks: skin color has no impact.

If the watch fails to detect your skin, you can turn off wrist detection in the companion app, but the watch will then no longer support...

Not only was this extremely time consuming and frustrating, it put users at risk of losing important and personal data, and often forced them to leave such data behind on their old device.

Two years ago, American Airlines replaced the paper versions of its cockpit documents with iPad flight bags on all planes. At the time, the airline touted that the switch would both save money for the company and make the lives of pilots easier. This evening, however, more than several dozen American Airlines flights have been affected by an iPad-related outage. Many flights have been delayed and passengers forced to exit the planes.

“Some flights are experiencing an issue with a software application on pilot iPads,” American Airlines wrote on Twitter. According to various user reports, iPads went blank for both captains and copilots. In order to resolve the issues, pilots had to return to the gate and...
