Possible iPhone 7 Headphone Jack Depicted in New Image

Amid rumors suggesting Apple is set to ditch the headphone jack in the iPhone 7, an image depicting a spare part that could be used in the device has surfaced – headphone jack included.

This morning, French site Nowhereelse.fr shared an image of a Lightning cable assembly, apparently destined for the iPhone 7, which differs in design from the same part found in the current iPhone 6s.

The assembly part is host to a number of components, including cellular antenna cables and the obligatory Lightning port, but the new design clearly shows a separate white headphone jack on the far left-hand side.

Left: purported iPhone 7 part (Image: Weibo); Right: iPhone 6s part (Image:...

Apple CEO Tim Cook Teases 'Great Innovation' in...

Apple CEO Tim Cook today sat down with CNBC Mad Money host Jim Cramer, where he discussed his thoughts on innovation, the future of the iPhone and the Apple Watch, the growth of Apple services, Apple's performance in China, and more.

Last week, Apple reported its first year-over-year revenue decline since 2003, announcing $10.5 billion in profit on $50.6 billion in revenue. Apple also saw its first ever decline in year-over-year iPhone sales, leading one Wall Street analyst to claim Apple's best days are behind it.

"I couldn't disagree more," said Cook when asked about the comment, attributing the perceived sales dip to an abnormally high upgrade rate in late 2014 and 2015 as people upgraded to the iPhone 6 and pointing towards...

Apple Campus 2 Drone Video Shows Major Progress on Fitness...

With much of the ring-shaped main building completed at Apple's second campus and auxiliary buildings taking shape, construction progress from month-to-month is ramping up. Drone pilot Duncan Sinfield has captured new aerial video of Apple Campus 2, allowing us to get a look at changes that have been made to the campus since April.

Significant work has been done on the 100,000 square foot fitness center, where Apple employees will be able to work out and stay healthy. A stone facade is now in place and the building looks to be nearing completion.

There are new cranes in the area, which are being used to finish up some of the main structure. Additional solar panels have been lifted into place on the roof of the building, more windows have gone up, and more window canopies have been installed. Parking structures are also...

Judge Grants Search Warrant Forcing Woman to Unlock iPhone...

For the first time in a federal case, authorities in a Los Angeles courtroom have issued a search warrant forcing a woman to bypass her iPhone's biometric security using Apple's Touch ID system (via LA Times). The woman in question -- Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan -- was arrested due to charges of identity theft and had previous strings of various criminal convictions.

According to jail records, U.S. Magistrate Judge Alicia Rosenberg signed the Touch ID-related search warrant about 45 minutes after Bkhchadzhyan was taken into custody on February 25. By the afternoon of her arrest, the suspect pleaded no contest to the charges of identity theft and gave the court her fingerprint to unlock the iPhone.

Police recovered Bkhchadzhyan's smartphone at the residence of her boyfriend, Sevak Mesrobian, known to be the...

Hulu Planning Live Cable TV Service With Partners Includin...

Streaming service Hulu is said to be working on a new subscription model that would provide customers with cable-style access to popular broadcast television networks.

In a report by The Wall Street Journal, sources close to the plan said the company's move would directly introduce Hulu as "a competitor to traditional pay-TV providers," in addition to streaming-only services like Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Hulu's current launch estimate for the cable-like service is sometime early in 2017, and a few partners are already mentioning interest in the program. Disney and Fox are said to be close to signing agreements to provide "many of their channels" to Hulu and its subscribers on the live platform. Some of their networks include ABC, ESPN, Disney Channel, Fox's basic broadcast channels, Fox News, and FX.

The company's ultimate goal with the new service...

Today's report covers the opening commentary from Apple's CEO Tim Cook during their Q2 2016 Financial Conference Call that was held on April 26, 2016. Cook's opening statement didn't reflect any real problems with China and in fact stated that the Apple Pay launch this quarter in China had gone great. Despite having fallen short from sales expectations from a comparison to a monster quarter last year and the fact that none of Apple's iPhone SE sales made it into the quarter, Apple had a fairly strong quarter.

Apple Debuts 'Reimagined and Redesigned' Support...

Apple today updated its support site with a brand new look and new ways for users to interact with it. The new site is broken into several different blocks, with most of the attention going to three different ways users can get help.

The first block is dedicated to a search bar that provides Quick Links, which allow users to get the answers they're looking for while they're searching rather than having to wait for a results page. The second block allows users to find support by choosing the device they need help with and the third block features "Popular Topics," like how to manage an Apple ID or photos.

The next set of blocks let users know they can seek help from other Apple users at the Apple Support Communities, check warranty and repair status and how to contact Apple Support. The final two blocks are dedicated to promoting Apple Workshops in retail stores and list out recall and replacement programs. The site's new design...

Apple Marketing Chief Phil Schiller: 'Never Pluralize...

Apple executive Phil Schiller gave Apple users a grammar lesson on Twitter yesterday afternoon, explaining that it isn't necessary to pluralize Apple product names.

Schiller's instructions came after a discussion on pluralizing "iPad Pro" between Andreessen Horowitz partner Benedict Evans and iMore analyst Michael Gartenberg. Evans referred to more than one iPad Pro as "iPads Pro," while Gartenberg said "iPad Pros."

Schiller clarified that neither approach was correct. The proper way to refer to more than one iPad Pro is to call them "iPad Pro devices."
