      🔥🔥🔥 Upgrade to Kodi 17.3 Krypton to Patch Major Security Flaw (24/May/2017) 🔥🔥🔥   05/24/2017

      Upgrade to Kodi 17.3 Krypton to Patch Major Security Flaw (24/May/2017)   We’re very sorry to have to bring you this news, but upgrading Kodi to the latest version (released today) is fairly urgent if you wish to keep your network secure. Earlier today, a security flaw within Kodi (and other media players including VLC) was reported by researchers from Check Point Software Technologies. They demonstrated that an attacker could gain control of any Kodi device through the use of malicious code placed within subtitles. Hypothetically, if an infected subtitle file were to be downloaded by Kodi, it could give a hacker full control over your device. This is particularly concerning when it comes to automatically downloaded subtitles. It is very important that you upgrade Kodi as soon as possible, otherwise you could be leaving your entire computer, device, or even home network at risk. Security flaws in software happens all the time, it’s normal. This security flaw also affected many other media players that are far more popular than Kodi. The important thing is that the issue was fixed quickly, and so far no damage has been reported. However, now that the security flaw has reached mainstream news, hackers will now likely be looking to exploit it far more aggressively. The official developers of Kodi have been working tirelessly to release an updated version of Kodi that would fix security flaw, as well as some other minor bugs. Team-Kodi “highly encourages” all users to install this latest version, as do we. If you’re still running Kodi 16.1 Jarvis or below, you might as well upgrade now, that way you’ll also gain access to all the streams that use newer HTTPS technology not supported in older versions of Kodi anyway. If you follow the instructions below carefully, upgrading should be super easy. Please note that these instructions describe the unofficial use of the Kodi media center. Before Proceeding Android Users: Those of you who are running older devices or cheap Android boxes might run into some trouble. Kodi 17.3 Krypton requires Android 5.0 or higher to run. If your device doesn’t support Android 5.0, you’ll need to buy a new Android TV box in order to continue to enjoy Kodi. Apple TV 2 Users: Even though the last two versions of Kodi didn’t support the Apple TV 2, the device still seemed to work alright. This will no longer be the case moving forward, without HTTPS or HD support it’ll be next to useless, it’s time to purchase a new Android TV box. United Kingdom Users: It will be necessary to disable certain router security settingsbefore continuing, we’d also highly recommend using a VPN Provider to circumvent site blocking. Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day.

  1. APPLE will live stream WWDC 2017 keynote on June 5 at 10AM PT Apple is now promoting its upcoming special event on June 5 at 10 am PT with a landing page and a calendar entry on apple.com. Apple’s WWDC 2017 opening keynote, which Apple will live stream, will be the first major event the company has held since last fall after foregoing a spring event this year. Apple first announced WWDC 2017, which is being held in San Jose rather than San Francisco this year, earlier than usual back in February. The early announcement has helped attendees adjust plans while a variety of community events have followed WWDC from San Francisco to San Jose this year. While the venue may be changing, Apple officially confirmed that its major keynote will still be held at 10 am PT on the first Monday of the keynote. 9to5Mac will be covering all the announcements out of the keynote and WWDC 2017 so stay tuned for all the news and analysis. Apple has also added its usual calendar reminder to www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2017/ which adds Apple Special Event to your calendar with a 15 minute alert. The event entry includes this teaser: “Join us for the WWDC keynote presentation and watch every moment live.” WWDC has strictly been a software event in recent years, but this year Apple is expected to introduce new hardware on stage as well. Alongside iOS 11, macOS 10.13, watchOS 4, and tvOS 11, Apple is expected to possibly unveil new MacBooks and MacBook Pros, the first-ever 10.5-inch iPad Pro and a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and the first Siri Speaker which is expected to be an competitor Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day.

  2. Component cost for 3D Touch module in OLED iPhone to rise by 150%, amidst rumors of premium priced iPhone 8 The iPhone 8 is expected to debut later this year touting a 5.8-inch OLED ‘bezel-less’ display incorporated into a new-design glass and stainless chassis. There have been many rumorsabout Apple increasing the price of the model above the current iPhone range (128 GB iPhone 7 Plustops out at $969), with some people referring to the device as an ‘iPhone Pro’. Higher component costs support the idea of a premium price tag, and this is exactly what Economic Daily News is reporting today. It claims that the 3D Touch module in the OLED iPhone will cost Apple 150% more than the equivalent parts in the LCD iPhone 7 … 3D Touch was first introduced with iPhone 6s, with headline features including home screen app shortcuts and Peek and Pop previews. The report says that touch panel manufacturer TPK currently charges $7-9 per iPhone sold to enable 3D Touch in the current iPhone series. For the upcoming OLED iPhone (tentatively named iPhone 8 by the community), the component cost for 3D Touch will more than double. EDN says that TPK has quoted Apple a cost between $18-$22 per device. Apple has seemingly accepted this quote as the next-generation iPhone production ramp is underway. Pressure-sensitive displays are more complex when the underlying screen technology is OLED (compared to LCD) because the OLED panel is more fragile. This necessitates the addition of a bonded glass cover on the front and back of the OLED panel. Digitimes says that usually an OLED-based 3D Touch solution will cost about 50% more than the LCD solution to account for the additional steps. However, Apple’s orders have been agreed at a quote that is 150% higher. It is not clear why Apple is paying top dollar for its components compared to the industry average. Speculatively, the iPhone 8 may include some cutting-edge display feature (Touch ID in the screen?) that requires additional care and processing. Apple analyst KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo has previously reported the need for a new intricate 3D Touch module for iPhone 8. Whatever the reason, a cost increase from $9 to $22 per unit is a significant increase in Apple’s bill of materials. Any increase in component cost will generally imply an increase in the final price of the product as Apple will want to maintain its margins. Therefore, this report supports the idea of the new iPhone 8 having a significantly higher price tag. A JP Morgan analyst previously predicted total BOM cost for the iPhone 8 will be about $90 more than the current phones. Apple is expected to debut the premium OLED iPhone later this year, touting wireless charging, 3D-sensing front cameras, face recognition and more features in addition to the new design. It is has also been reported that the company will unveil two iterative updates to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which will include new internal upgrades but look mostly the same from the outside. These ‘7s’ devices would retain current price points giving room for Apple to make the iPhone 8 more expensive. Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day. The Mixdoctor Team Member of koditalk.org
  3. APPLE BYTE EXTRA CRUNCHY VIDEO PODCAST Ep 84 Windows 10 gets iTunes, and Amazon Prime Video is coming to the Apple TV. Also, the Apple Watch is more accurate than you think and more iPhone 8 rumors.
  4. Report: Apple to phase out the iPad mini, no more updates planned There may be bad news for iPad mini fans. A new report claims Apple plans to discontinue the 7.9-inch iPad sometime in the future, which is a claim supported by the lack of updates to the smaller iPad in recent years. BGR cites ‘a source close to Apple’ in reporting that the iPad mini will not be updated again and will instead by phased out over time due to decreasing sales possibly caused by lighter and thinner iPads and modern iPhones with larger displays. The report offers no additional details like when the iPad mini will actually be discontinued. Apple currently offers a single storage configuration of its iPad mini 4 with 128GB for $399 and a model with built-in LTE for $529. Apple undercut the price of the iPad mini 4 price with the new 9.7-inch iPad that goes for $329 for 32GB and $429 for 128GB. The $329 iPad also has a newer processor, although the iPad mini 4 has a higher quality display with lamination and an anti-reflective coating. Some analysts have predicted that the iPad mini will eventually be discontinued which isn’t surprising considering Apple has only revised the product three times in five years (and one update only involved adding Touch ID and a gold color option). Still, there have been reports of a so-called iPad mini Pro with Smart Connector and Apple Pencil support as unlikely as it sounds… While the iPad mini appears to be on the way out, Apple may be planning to update the iPad Pro line for the first time in over a year with a new 10.5-inch model with slimmer bezels and about the same casing as the 9.7-inch version as soon as next month at WWDC.
  5. Tim Cook says Apple Watch helped him lose 30 pounds, but he still looks the same (Extra Crunchy VIDEO PODCAST, Ep. 83) Where did all the weight go, Tim? Apple sold fewer iPhones but made more money, and Merriam-Webster is calling out Apple fanboys.
  6. Apple’s working on an Echo-like smart speaker of its own. (Extra Crunchy VIDEO PODCAST, Ep. 82) Would you leave your Amazon Echo or Google Home for an Apple smart speaker? Apple is testing its autonomous vehicle platform, and it also wants in on peer-to-peer payments with Apple Pay.
  7. Apple sleep scientist responsible for Night Shift & Bedtime alarm departs company Earlier this week, we reported that Apple acquired sleep platform Beddit as sleep tracking remains an oft-requested feature for Apple Watch. Simultaneously, Apple has also lost one of its top sleep experts. According to a report from MobiHealthNews, Apple sleep scientist Roy J.E.M Raymann has departed the company… According to his LinkedIn profile, Raymann worked on Apple’s Night Shift display technology, which adjusts the color temperature of displays based on the time of day. Additionally, Raymann also worked on the iOS Bedtime alarm feature and various ResearchKit and HealthKit initiatives. Raymann originally joined Apple back in 2014 and it was believed that he would be working on Apple Watch technology, though that has since turned out not to be the case. Prior to Apple, Raymann was a sleep scientist at Phillips. It appears that Raymann departed Apple in April of this year, taking his talents to SleepScore Labs – a San Diego company that helps people who experience suboptimal sleep. It’s not explicitly clear as to why Raymann left Apple. Apple earlier this week acquired popular iOS sleep tracking platform Beddit. For those unfamiliar, Beddit works by having the user place a small tracker underneath their bedsheet and then providing detailed information about sleep quality via accompanying iOS and Apple Watch applications. While it’s still unclear as to how much Apple paid for Beddit, the company has confirmed the acquisition. Sleep tracking remains one of the most sought after features for Apple Watch and Apple’s acquisition of Beddit likely means that the company is putting an intensified focus on the area. What’s interesting at this point is whether Apple will use a hardware solution like Beddit’s, or if it will simply use the Apple Watch for all sleep tracking. watchOS 4 is likely to be unveiled to the public next month and while it may be wishful thinking, it’s possible that sleep tracking could be a tentpole feature of the update, but we’ll have to wait and see. Is sleep tracking high up on your watchOS wishlist? Let us know down in the comments. Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day. The Mixdoctor Team Member of koditalk.org
  8. Report: Amazon Prime Video coming to Apple TV at WWDC, Amazon to resume Apple TV sales Last week Recode reported that Amazon and Apple were actively discussing plans to bring to Apple TV later this year, and now Buzzfeed is reporting that yes, really, it’s happening and the deal is now official. Amazon Prime Video for Apple TV is expected to be introduced on stage at WWDC next month and launch later this summer, according to the report. Amazon has long made Prime Video available through an app on iPhones and iPads, but so far Amazon has resisted creating an app for the fourth-generation Apple TV. The apparent feud between Apple and Amazon started back in 2015when Amazon removed Apple TVs from its online store, citing confusion created by not having an Amazon Prime Video app. At the time, Apple worked privately with companies to add new channels to its TV platform individually and Amazon was pushing its . Apple later released the current Apple TV which runs tvOS and has its own App Store that works like the iPhone and iPad App Store. Amazon has been able to create an app for a while now (and it’s been rumored before). As part of the new agreement, Buzzfeed says that Apple TV sales will resume on Amazon. Apple’s WWDC keynote is scheduled for Monday, June 5 at 10 am PT where we’ll have full coverage all the announcements including iOS 11, macOS 10.13, and even a possible Amazon Echo competitor.

  9. iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s reportedly set to go on sale in October, mass production ‘on schedule’ There have been a few reports recently about delays in the production pipeline for Apple’s next-generation iPhones. A new report from Economic Daily News claims that mass production of iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s is on track for the new iPhones to be announced by Apple in September and go on sale in October. According to EDN, via Digitimes, one of the big issues was manufacturing of the new substrate-like circuit boards set to feature in all three new iPhones. Yields of these components have apparently now been improved. For the last few years, Apple has announced its latest iPhone in September and released in the same month. Last year, Apple announced the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus on September 7, 2016 and the devices went on sale on September 16, 2016. The Economic Daily News report characterizes the 2017 production as being ‘on schedule’. Technically, a public availability of the iPhone 8 and 7s devices in October would still represent a slight delay compared to the pattern of the last few years. It seems like mass production of iPhone internal components will start in June, with TSMC fabricating A11 SoC wafers as soon as June 10 according to the report. The substrate-like parts will also being volume manufacturing in June. Foxconn and Pegatron are accelerating hiring of workers en masse to prepare for iPhone 8 assembly. Apple is widely expected to be launching three new iPhone models for 2017. Although final marketing names are unknown, the company is readying two ‘iPhone 7s phones featuring the same chassis design as the current generation with a focus on internal upgrades; better performance, better battery life and wireless charging. Apple is also expected to announce a radical new iPhone, being dubbed ‘iPhone 8.’ This phone will incorporate a larger 5.8-inch OLED display into the same physical case size as a 4.7-inch iPhone 7. This means the phone will have drastically smaller bezels allowing the screen to dominate the front face. The chassis will apparently be made of stainless steel sides and glass on the front and back. Although the physical appearance of the iPhone 8 is still unclear, many rumors point to the inclusion of a 3D-sensing front camera, A11 SoC, improved waterproofing, a new vertical rear dual-camera system with optical image stabilization on both lenses, wireless inductive charging, and more.

  12. Apple extends repair coverage to 3 years for Apple Watch (1st gen) w/ expanded/swollen batteries Apple has extended its service coverage for Apple Watch (1st gen) models experiencing expanded/swollen battery problems to three years, covering customers for service for an additional two years beyond the complimentary 1-year Limited Warranty that it provides with the device. The issue with swollen and expanded batteries on first-gen Apple Watch models has been documented online by users experiencing the problem— on Apple support forums, for example, and here on Reddit— but appears to not be widespread or something that has made mainstream media headlines. Apple normally has a service program that covers all of its devices for repairs related to expanded/swollen battery issues for two years (1 year beyond the 1-year Limited Warranty it provides with all devices), so the extension for Apple Watch first-gen extends its coverage an additional year beyond coverage for other products. The change comes as the 1st gen Apple Watch passes the two year mark after having been introduced April 24, 2015. Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day. The Mixdoctor Team Member of koditalk.org
  13. Nasty Mac malware bypasses Gatekeeper, undetectable by most antivirus apps We learned recently that macOS malware grew by 744% last year, though most of it fell into the less-worrying category of adware. However, a newly-discovered piece of malware (via Reddit) falls into the ‘seriously nasty’ category – able to spy on all your Internet usage, including use of secure websites. Security researchers at CheckPoint found something they’ve labelled OSX/Dok, which manages to go undetected by Gatekeeper and stops users doing anything on their Mac until they accept a fake OS X update … NordVPN OSX/Dok does rely on a phishing attack as its initial way in. Victims are sent an email claiming to be from a tax office regarding their income tax return, asking them to open an attached zip file for details. This should, of course, immediately ring alarm-bells: no-one should ever open a zip file they aren’t expecting, even if it seems to be from a known contact. But after that, the approach taken by the malware is extremely clever. It installs itself as a Login Item called AppStore, which means it automatically runs each time the machine is booted. It then waits for a while before presenting a fake macOS update window. This means that literally everything you do on the Internet, even accessing secure servers using https connections, will pass through the attacker’s proxy. A bogus security certificate is also installed, allowing the attacker to impersonate any website without being flagged. The reason Gatekeeper doesn’t block the malware in the first place is that it has a valid developer’s certificate. This should make it easy for Apple to address, by revoking the certificate, but it of course set in motion again if the attackers can gain access to another certificate.

  14. Apple’s working on a holy grail to treat diabetes (Apple Byte Extra Crunchy VIDEO CAST, Ep. 80) Apple has a small team of biomedical engineers working to develop noninvasive sensors that can measure glucose levels through the skin. The 2017 iMac was Apple’s idea of a pro machine, until they decided to bring the Mac Pro back from the dead.
  15. New iMacs to launch in Q3 and ‘server-grade’ iMac with Xeon CPU, ECC RAM, new GPU At end of 2017 Apple has already announced that it will launch new iMacs later this year, including models aimed at pro users. Today, Digitimes reportedly reveals some details about what the iMac update will bring. The report says that the consumer iMac models are going into production next month, with a launch in the second half of the year. An update is certainly due; the latest 5K iMac launched in late 2015. The pro iMac will seemingly launch later, with ‘server-grade’ components … In a rare case, Apple tipped the hat on its future product plans for the iMac as part of a wider roundtable regarding the state of the Mac Pro and professional Mac users. As such, we know that new iMacs are on the way, including models aimed at the pro market, but Apple did not share any further information about specification or availability. The Digitimes report says that the server-grade iMac will use an Intel Xeon E3-1285 processor, as well as ECC RAM up to 64 GB. ECC RAM automatically protects against data corruption in the memory, increasing reliability of the overall system. It also claims that Apple will support configurations with NVMe SSD storage up to 2 TB in size as well as a ‘latest discrete graphics card’. Current iMac uses mobile versions of GPU parts, a particular frustration of many high-end professional Mac users. Unfortunately, the wording of the Digitimes report does not make it clear if Apple would use a true desktop card, or merely a modern mobile GPU. Previously, Bloomberg has claimed that Apple is readying an iMac revision with new AMD GPUs and USB-C ports. Digitimes says Apple’s new iMacs — in the same 21.5 inch and 27-inch sizes — will be manufactured by Quanta Computer. It seems that the consumer iMac update could launch in the July-August timeframe whilst the pro iMac is destined for very-late 2017 Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day.

  19. How to screen share with iOS and macOS to help friends and family with new devices Over that last month your friends and family have probably purchased or been gifted a range of new devices, and odds may be good that you’re the go-to for tech support. Sometimes it works to problem solve by voice or text message when you aren’t with the user in need, but it’s often better to see what they’re seeing and also have some remote control access. Keep reading after the break for three ways to remotely help others more efficiently. The cleanest way to see and even control another persons device (outside of paid software like logmein) is if they have a Mac. For options two and three we’ll walk through how to screen share with Macs, iPhones, iPads, and iPods without any third-party software. My favorite trick is using QuickTime on a Mac to screen share an iOS device (skip towards the bottom if you want to do this). However, if they only have iOS devices this first option may be obvious, but is still useful. FaceTime Instead of struggling through a phone call, I often forget to have the other person take a FaceTime call on a secondary iOS device, and point it towards the device they are struggling with. Even though this doesn’t provide the ability to control their device, it still helps you see more quickly what is going wrong. It’s also useful to see how the person needs to adjust how they’re trying to navigate, tap, interact, etc. with their device. I’ve found it’s nice for the other person to have an adjustable stand or tripod to keep the FaceTime device steady and at a good angle. KCOOL’s octopus style tripod is great for portability and flexibility and AmazonBasics Lightweight Tripod is an awesome value for a full size option which pairs well with Ipow’s iPad Tripod Mount Adapter and other accessories. Mac to Mac Screen Sharing Providing support to others can be even smoother when you can take control of their device. When you do Mac to Mac screen sharing this is an option, you can also share your screen instead of seeing theirs. To do this, make sure the ‘Screen Sharing’ box is checked in System Preferences → Sharing. Also, if the Apple ID they use for iCloud and Messages on the Mac is different, you’ll need to have both emails on their contact card. Here are two ways to start screen sharing: Do a Spotlight search for ‘Screen Sharing’ and launch it. You’ll then see a dialog box with the option to enter the Apple ID of the person you’d like to screen share with. On the receiving end they’ll see this invitation. Make sure they select ‘Control My Screen.’ The alternate way to start screen sharing is through Messages on macOS. Click ‘Details’ in the top right corner of the message of the person you’d like to screen share with and select ‘Invite to share my screen’ or ‘Ask to share screen.’ They will receive the same accept or decline notification as above and also accept your ability to control their screen. Once you are connected a FaceTime voice call will also automatically initiate and you’ll see everything on their screen. Another useful trick is to open QuickTime Player and start a screen recording (File → New Screen Recording) so they can revisit the guidance anytime they want. When you’re ready to end the session, you can click ‘Screen Sharing’ next to the  in the menu bar and select ‘Quit Screen Sharing.’ Screen Share iOS devices using Macs This is a helpful modified use of a developer feature that Apple has built into QuickTime Player that came along with Yosemite. When you use the Screen Sharing Mac app with this screen casting feature option you can see everything happening on an iOS device as long as both parties have Macs. First, start a screen sharing session. Have the person you’re helping plug in their iOS device via USB cable to the Mac that they are screen sharing with. Lastly, launch QuickTime Player and click ‘File’ and ‘New Movie Recording.’ Once the movie window opens, select the drop down arrow next the record icon and click the iOS device you’d like to see, then click record. Here is a snapshot of what you’ll see on their Mac as you screen share. After you’ve solved all their issues, you can even help them save the footage so they can review it later and remember the solution again in the future. 🎅🎄HAPPY HOLIDAYS🎄🎅 😎The Mixdoctor 😎 Team Member of forum.place & Extreme Kodi Testing ( Check us out too ) You Can Now Follow Me On Twitter https://twitter.com/Kodi_Mixdoctor CHECK OUT OUR LATEST SITE Stream Help http://streamhelp.org If We Or This Forum Has Helped You Please Consider Donating To Keep All Videos And Forums Up To Date And Active As The Server Costs Are Great Remember Click Around The Adverts As This Also Helps Pay For Server Costs Thank You And Have A Great Day 🏵 KODI DISCLAIMER We are not connected to or in any other way affiliated with Kodi, Team Kodi, or the XBMC Foundation.

  20. Launch of next-generation iPhone 8 may be pushed to October or November, says report The iPhone 8 may debut later than we have been used to, according to a new report. For the last few years, Apple has announced its new iPhone lineup at a September event in the fall with a release date a couple weeks later. For example, the iPhone 7 was announced on September 7th and released on September 16th. This year, Economic Daily News (via Digitimes) is suggesting that the launch may be pushed back to October or November, as production of the radical new iPhone has faced challenges … The paper cites ‘technical issues’ as the reason for the delay compared to recent history, with suppliers struggling to perfect the lamination process of curved OLED panels and adoption of the 3D sensing front camera system. Apple has launched its new iPhone model in September every year since the iPhone 5; the iPhone 4s debuted in early October. Before that, iPhone models went on sale in June. Although reports about Apple facing production issues seem to appear every year, there is some supporting evidence here. An independent report from early March has already said that the iPhone 8 (which is not necessarily the final marketing name of the flagship 2017 iPhone) would ship later than September as Apple needed time to ramp production of the 3D front camera components. Another point to consider is that Foxconn has been pretty quiet on the leaks front, given the calendar. By April, we normally see a flood of next-gen iPhone cases, schematics leak and blurry photos from the factory floor. This is yet to happen for iPhone 8. Either Apple has tightened security to improve secrecy … or the devices are yet to be produced in mass quantities. Digitimes previously claimed that the iPhone 8 would not go into mass production until September although fabrication of Apple A11 chips will apparently start rolling this month. Even if the availability of the iPhone 8 ultimately turns out to be October or November, this doesn’t preclude Apple from holding their fall event in September regardless. They could unveil the new phone with a longer lead time until launch. With rumors that Apple is preparing three new iPhone models this year, it is also very plausible that the company launches the two minor-upgrade devices in September to fill the gap until the radical redesigned OLED device debuts a month or two later. Apple could also simply announce the iPhone 8 as going on sale in late September as usual, but have fewer units available to buy so that the device is back-ordered for a longer period, effectively pushing the general availability date into the November timeframe, echoing the launch of the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus. There is a lot of hype for this new phone. The iPhone 8 is expected to feature an all-new industrial design with a glass and stainless steel chassis, a 5.8-inch gently-curved edge-to-edge OLED display, a bezel-less front, a 3D depth-sensing front camera, wireless charging, a virtual Home Buttonwith integrated Touch ID fingerprint sensor, facial recognition and much more. All this new technology has also resulted in many reports claiming that the iPhone 8 will be the most expensive iPhone yet, with prices potentially above $1000. Apple is also expected to introduce modest updates to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, dubbed ‘7s’ phones with mainly internal components upgrades, at normal iPhone prices.

  22. Apple patent application illustrates Touch Bar and Touch ID on Magic Keyboard I wondered soon after the launch of the 2016 MacBook Pro whether Apple might have plans to bring the Touch Bar and Touch ID to a new Magic Keyboard. A new Apple patent application shows that the company is at least exploring the idea. As ever, the language of the patent is dense, but the illustrations include a standalone keyboard as well as a laptop one. In some embodiments, the device may also include a processing unit positioned within the housing, and a primary display positioned at least partially within the housing and configured to display a graphical-user interface executed by the processing unit. In some embodiments, the display is an organic light-emitting diode display. The electronic device may be a keyboard device. This would seem to address the greatest weakness of the Touch Bar … One of the comments people have been making about the Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro is that it will be irrelevant to those professionals who mostly use their Mac at their desk with an external monitor and keyboard. Unless Apple can offer an external keyboard with a Touch Bar, the feature may not see much use. While I haven’t personally been wowed by the Touch Bar, there are definitely times when it is useful – but that usefulness is completely lost when I’m sat at my desk with the MacBook Pro off to one side. I’m of course not the only one to have imagined a Magic Keyboard with a Touch Bar. We’ve seen a number of renders showing how it might look. There are problems to be solved, including battery-life, frame-rates when using a wireless connection and, of course, cost. But the overwhelming majority of you expressed an interest in the idea, and almost half were willing to pay a significant premium to get one, suggesting that cost may not be an insurmountable barrier. Apple is already looking beyond the Touch Bar, holding discussions with dynamic keyboard maker Sonder and hinting at more to come in this area.

  23. Apple reportedly working to offer ‘premium TV’ streaming bundle Although its original efforts are believed to have failed, Apple isn’t giving up on its goal to sell a streaming TV bundle. According to a new report from Recode, Apple is currently working towards selling consumers a “premium TV bundle” consisting of HBO, Showtime, and Starz. While many cable providers already offer such a package, they typically require users to sign up for a basic level of channels. Apple’s efforts, however, would allow a consumer to subscribe to just those three premium channels. The goal is to offer the package as a service delivered via iOS and Apple TV, a move that would further bolster Apple’s increasingly important Services sector. Currently, Apple sells HBO for $15 per month, Showtime for $11 per month, and Starz for $9 per month, all via the App Store. At this point, it’s not clear as to what price Apple targets for its bundle, but it would presumably come in for less than the three services separately do. One important thing to consider, however, is that Apple has yet to secure any deals for this premium TV package. This means that we’re presumably a ways away from such a service launching to the public. At one point, it was believed that Apple was working to offer a package of traditional cable channels for somewhere around $35. The company has since shifted its efforts due to difficulties negotiating with cable networks. Apple’s media head Eddy Cue has commented in the past that cable companies are unwilling to make the concessions required to offer an enticing service, thus the reason for the company ending its efforts in the area. Would you be interested in a streaming premium TV package from Apple? Or would you rather it refocus its efforts on providing a DirecTV Now-like package of traditional channels?
