  2. UK retailers call for £30 contactless card limit to be increased, but police advise against The UK got quite a head-start on the U.S. when it comes to contactless payments, the first contactless cards launched back in 2007. But concerns about fraud meant that contactless transactions were initially limited to £20 ($26) before a modest increase to £30 ($39) … Worries about fraud were driven by the complete lack of any security check on any individual transaction, allowing a thief to easily use a stolen card. Card companies do, however, carry out other checks – like looking for an unusual number of consecutive transactions. A recent survey found that more than half of UK retailers would like to see the payment limit increased, but a police commissioner has advised against it, reports London’s Evening Standard. While Apple Pay does effectively mimick a contactless card transaction, it offers far greater security. Transactions have to be authorized by Touch ID on the iPhone, or by an Apple Watch which has been continuously worn since unlocked with a passcode. Additionally, no actual card details are supplied to the terminal, replaced by a one-time code. For that reason, many payment transactions now recognize Apple Pay transactions and dispense with the usual £30 limit. We first saw unlimited transactions more than a year ago, and I have experienced it myself on many occasions. It looks like Apple Pay may retain that advantage for some time yet.

  3. KGI: LTE Apple Watch likely using eSIM, no phone calling or Android support expected Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has an update to the recent LTE Apple Watch reportthat includes a few details about what to expect. Kuo expects cellular models of the Apple Watch will use an eSIM and not a physical SIM card as a space-saving measure, and the cellular connection may only be used for data transfer and not phone call features. Apple first started using its embedded Apple SIM in the original 9.7-inch iPad Pro last year, although it retained the physical SIM tray as well for carriers who do not support the Apple SIM. KGI already forecasted what Bloomberg first reported: the cellular Apple Watch will feature LTE connectivity but offer no 3G connection which will limit it to certain markets and countries. Today KGI adds that it believes Apple could choose Qualcomm over Intel for the baseband chip as the former company offers a smaller, low power solution. The other new development is Kuo expects Apple could omit phone call capabilities from the LTE model of the new Apple Watch. You can already make phone calls from the Apple Watch when it’s paired with a nearby iPhone and there’s no technical limitation with the implementation, but KGI expects Apple may want to improve the “user experience” of data transmission before enabling voice services. Curiously, the report doesn’t rule out VoIP services like Skype and FaceTime for calling however. Still, this will be a notable setback if the cellular Apple Watch can’t place and receive voice calls. Finally, KGI says it doesn’t believe Apple Watch will gain Android compatibility this year despite the move potentially boosting device sales for the wearable. Kuo cites difficulty providing a good experience between Android and watchOS for not creating an Apple Watch companion app for Android at this time. Some have suggested adding LTE which may make the Apple Watch more independent from the iPhone could be a step toward Android compatibility. KGI has previously reported that Apple will offer both LTE and non-LTE models of the new Apple Watch which is expected to keep the same design with 38mm and 42mm options. If Apple follows tradition, we may see new Apple Watch hardware with LTE introduced sometime next month alongside new iPhones.
  4. 🔥📱🇺🇸 Readers report Apple unofficially offering free repairs on devices 🇺🇸📱🔥 🔥📱🇺🇸 damaged in Hurricane Harvey 🇺🇸📱🔥 Readers in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey are reporting that in at least some cases Apple is offering free repairs to water-damaged devices, as well as those which suffered impact damage during the evacuation. Neither type of damage would normally be covered under warranty. We’ve reached out to Apple, but at present there does not seem to be any company-wide policy in effect, so it seems that this is being done on a case-by-case basis by individual stores – though likely with corporate endorsement … Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey may be worse than that caused by Katrina in New Orleans back in 2005, reports the BBC. The hurricane is known to be responsible for at least 47 deaths, and around 43,000 people forced to evacuate their homes are staying in shelters. Many of the affected areas are still battling with flood water. There is still uncertainty as to how the cost of the damage will be covered. Some insurance policies specifically exclude hurricane damage in areas known to be vulnerable, and there appears to be disagreement between state and federal governments. Governor Abbott said that Congressional authorization for $7.85B in aid was merely a downpayment, while the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Brock Long has suggested that this should be a state responsibility. Carriers have been offering free service in affected areas, and Apple has donated $2M to relief efforts, as well as encouraging donations via iTunes. It appears that the company may also be trying to give a break to customers hit by the disaster. Thank You And Have A Great Day

  8. An Apple Watch with LTE has the potential to be a true iPhone replacement I’ve always been very skeptical when it comes to Apple Watch. From the start I wasn’t necessarily convinced that I had a need for the device. Its price tag and early user interface bugs quickly wore thin on me and I ultimately found myself going weeks at a time without wearing it or even charging. As I wrote last year, however, watchOS 3 and Apple Watch Series 2 quickly changed my opinion and made Apple’s wearable an integral part of my lifestyle. When people started calling on Apple to add LTE functionality to the Apple Watch, however, I was puzzled. Why does a wearable that’s always connected to the iPhone need LTE? The more I’ve thought about it, though, the more I see the other side of the argument. The perfect Apple Watch is one that has no dependancy on the iPhone, but rather is fully functional wherever you go. Three separate reports have said Apple will add LTE to the Apple Watch this year, one from Bloomberg and two from KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo. Both have reliable track records, but more than anything, LTE feels like the natural next step for Apple Watch. It currently looks like Apple will sell both WiFi-only and LTE models of the Apple Watch, much like it currently does with the iPad. I’m a huge fan of the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, but I’ve generally only owned WiFi models of Apple’s tablets due to the fact that anywhere I go with my iPad, I’ll almost certainly have my hotspot-equipped iPhone. Why would I pay extra to both Apple and AT&T for cellular in such a scenario? If I’m carrying a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, why can’t I toss my iPhone in my pocket and be good to go? The Apple Watch argument is a bit different. There are countless instances where I would love to leave my iPhone in the car or at home, but simply can’t due to the possibility of a family emergency or something else that requires an immediate response. With an LTE Apple Watch, however, I could do just that. Leave my iPhone behind, yet stay connected wherever I go. Whether it be out for a hike with the dog, out to dinner, or even just for an “iPhone-free day,” which sounds quite appealing a lot of the time. There’s much more to this argument, though. Apple has to ensure that Apple Watch truly remains fully functional without an iPhone connection. This should include app notifications, calls, SMS messages and iMessages, and more. The whole lot. One missed notification because of a weird forwarding bug completely erases the peace of mind that an LTE Apple Watch provides. However, KGI’s most recent report explained that Apple currently doesn’t plan to offer phone calling via Apple Watch, at least through the carrier. The report didn’t rule out calling through platforms like Skype or FaceTime. Either way, however, this is a huge let down. I hope there will be some sort of technical support for sending notifications for missed calls. For instance, if Apple Watch and iPhone aren’t paired and there’s a call to the iPhone, I should get a notification on Apple Watch telling me and allowing me to return the car with a FaceTime Audio call. There’s also the issue of pricing. The LTE iPad generally costs $130 more than the WiFi-only model, and that big of a price difference isn’t viable for the Apple Watch in my mind. Ideally, the LTE Apple Watch would cost around $50 more than the WiFi model. Unfortunately, I don’t really see anyway around paying carriers more for the LTE data on Apple Watch, either. For instance, T-Mobile currently charges an extra $5 per month for wearable LTE service. While it’s a small amount, it can certainly add up over time and combined with the additional hardware costs, some users might not be willing to take the leap. Furthermore, LTE connectivity shouldn’t come at the expense of other features. If cellular reduces Apple Watch battery by any significant margin, I’ll be incredibly disappointed. If Apple Watch gets any thicker or heavier to house the LTE hardware, I won’t wear it. As you can see, my thoughts on a cellular Apple Watch carry a few contingencies. The biggest, however, is that Apple must make it clear that there are features and use cases for an LTE Apple Watch. If all it enables is support for iMessage, then I’ll have a hard time justifying the added hardware cost as well as the added monthly cost. On the other hand, if the cellular connection can provide a complete user experience that can replace the iPhone, at least for short periods of time, then I am entirely onboard. It comes down to this: I’m fully convinced that the Apple Watch can replace my iPhone for short periods of time, up to as long as a few days. All that’s missing is cellular connectivity, and I really hope Apple gets it right this year. Would you be interested in an LTE Apple Watch? Or would you rather Apple focus on improving other areas of the device? Let’s talk down in the comments. Thank You And Have A Great Day. The Mixdoctor Team Member of koditalk.org
  9. Apple Watch Series 3 enters final testing for end of the year launch Taiwanese-based Quanta Computer, an integral part of Apple’s supply chain as a maker of MacBooks and the Apple Watch, is ramping up to begin producing the Apple Watch Series 3, according to Chinese news outlet Economic Daily. Expected to launch later this year, the report notes that Quanta has entered the final testing phase for the Apple Watch Series 3 and is on the cusp of mass production. The new Apple Watch is expected to ship with both 38mm and 42mm models and look similar to current Apple Watch models, but will also feature an LTE option in order to facilitate a measure of wireless connectivity without needing to rely on a paired iPhone.

  11. Nikkei: HomePod shipments in Q4 2017 likely to be limited at launch A new report out today indicates that the Apple HomePod will likely be limited in quantity when it begins shipping out in the fourth quarter of this year. Inventec Appliances, which is also responsible for manufacturing AirPods, is expected to start with a limited shipment of HomePods that increases into the next year. According to Nikkei Asian Review, Inventec Appliance’s President David Ho told analysts, “We will finally ship the smart home device this year, but its contribution will be fairly limited and hopefully that will improve next year.” Ho’s statement harkens back to the company similarly having to ramp up production to meet the AirPods’ overwhelming demand. A person with “direct knowledge” of Inventec Appliance’s orders told Nikkei that the manufacturing company will split the orders with its rival Hon Hai Precision Industry (Foxconn) in 2018. Even with that split, officials from Inventec Appliances said that the company’s number of smart and connected devices would grow 20%, aligning with their forecast from the beginning of this year. In the meantime, Apple’s “leaked” firmware for the yet-to-be-released HomePod has given us strong indications into the company’s upcoming product details after seemingly confirming the iPhone 8’s notch design and Face ID, the iPhone 8’s Home button, and the HomePod’s LED matrix display Thank You And Have A Great Day.

  12. How to play Nintendo Switch and other game consoles on your iMac’s display [ VIDEO WALKTHROUGH ] The 5K iMac features a great display, but it comes with no built in input options for connecting external media sources like gaming consoles. Yet, there is a way to play gaming consoles like Nintendo Switch and PS4 on the iMac’s display. By wielding the Elgato Game Capture HD60 Sexternal capture device, it’s easy to direct video output from you favorite gaming console to your iMac’s display. Normally thought of for its capturing abilities, the HD60 S, is headlined by its superior low-latency properties. The low latency makes the HD60 S an ideal solution for displaying the Nintendo Switch in full screen at up to 1080p at 60 fps. It’s not perfect, and at over $150 it’s definitely not cheap, but it’s the best solution that I’ve found for using the iMac as an external display. Watch our hands-on video walkthrough for an explanation. The basic setup involves the Elgato HD60 S, which connects to the iMac via USB 3.0 using the included USB-C to USB-A cable. The HDMI cable from the Nintendo Switch dock then connects to the HDMI input port on the HD60 S. It’s a typical setup used for streaming gameplay online, but instead of using it for streaming, we simply take advantage of the HD60 S’ low latency preview playback capability. Elgato’s previous generation Game Capture device, the HD60, relied on a hardware encoder, and featured too much lag to make such a setup viable. The HD60 S, on the other hand, with its software-driven encoding, featured almost no noticeable lag in the Nintendo Switch games I was able to test. I tried out Super Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Puyo Puyo Tetris, and Splatoon 2, three games that definitely require low latency input, and was able to play each with almost no issues. Occasionally I did experience some discernible latency and screen tearing, but the majority of the experience was surprisingly good. VIDEO WALKTHROUGH Granted, considering I only tried a few titles during my testing, your mileage may vary with such a setup. Elgato highly touts the device’s near realtime preview capabilities, but it isn’t necessarily pitching the HD60 S as a means of converting the iMac into an external display for gaming console. Be sure to enable ‘Allow 60 fps for Video Preview’ for the best experience Because this connection is fast enough to allow the connected computer to process the video, the HD60 S is able to offer what Elgato calls Instant Gameview — a virtually realtime preview, which in my experience with games like Super Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, featured no noticeable lag, and instant controller input. As such, Elgato recommends that the connected computer have a quad core processor in order to keep lag to a minimum. Hands-on with the GameCapture HD60 S One potential point of annoyance is the Game Capture HD software itself. The app is more than adequate for managing actual gameplay recording and editing, but tends to get in the way when it’s being used only for its ability to display output from an HDMI source like the Nintendo Switch. Thankfully, it is possible to put the Game Capture HD app into full screen mode, which will auto hides all of the app’s details and only display the output from the connected console. Splatoon 2 output on 5K iMac display The HD60 S is quite pricey at nearly $180, so this obviously isn’t something I’m recommending all Mac-owning Switch gamers to run out and buy. Yet, if you’re dead set on playing console games on your iMac’s display, or if you were already considering getting into video game streaming, the HD60 S + Nintendo Switch + iMac makes for a pretty rad experience in my testing.

  14. Apple shows off new emoji coming to iOS 11, does playful iTunes Movies makeover Following an earlier preview and list of new emoji by the Unicode Consortium, Apple has shared some of the emoji coming to Apple devices later this year. In celebration of World Emoji Day (which is apparently a thing), Apple has also done a playful makeover of iTunes Movies, as well as highlighting emoji-related apps … Apple also notes the continued expansion of differing skin tones, stating that ‘the new emoji make it easier for users to express themselves with greater diversity.’ The iTunes Movies section replaces some movie graphics with emoji indicating their titles. Apple says that the emoji will be coming to iOS, macOS and watchOS later in the year. You can see below a gallery of the images shared by the company.

  16. $99 augmented reality headset for the iPhone 7 coming later in the year [Video] We’ve been seeing some impressive augmented reality apps of late, but if holding your phone out in front of you feels a bit too artificial, an LA-based startup has an affordable alternative. The Mira Prism is a $99 headset with a slot for an iPhone 7. Instead of the Google Cardboard approach of having the screen face you, it instead faces the inside of the visor. You then see the augmented elements reflected on the plastic in front of you, and the real world through the glasses … The simplicity of the device is what enables the company to keep the price down. There’s also a spectator mode which enables a friend to see your AR experience on their own phone or tablet. Of course, reflected images require apps designed for that view, so Mira is making the headset and accompanying SDK available first to developers. They’ll be able to get their hands on one in the fall, with the SDK available next month, while everyone else will have to wait until the holidays. The drawback of that timing is that the Prism is currently iPhone 7 only, and by the holidays many would-be customers will have an iPhone 8 … But if you’re not planning to upgrade, Engadget was reasonably impressed with a brief hands-on. You can pre-order at the company’s website. The usual cautionary note applies about buying products that don’t yet exist. There’s also a rumor of a (doubtless very much more expensive) Apple active AR headset in the works.

  19. PSA: Apple updates list of countries eligible for $99/year Apple Music plan An updated Apple Music support page now lists all countries eligible for the $99 annual membership. This updated page acts as an official announcement considering the initial launch had none. The ‘Availability of Apple Music and iTunes Match‘ support page lists what access each region has. For example, Germany, but not Argentina, has student memberships for Apple Music. The list also helps answer which countries those Beats 1 DJs are referring to when they say “live in over 100 countries”. The Apple Music breakdown also shows which regions are eligible for the new $99 annual plan. Not all countries currently list it as being available. At the time of this writing Norway, Qatar, and many more do not. From Chance’s previous writeup: Once you’re subscribed to a monthly family, individual, or student plan, you can head into the App Store and start the process of switching to the yearly plan. In the App Store (on iOS 10), scroll to the bottom of the featured tab and tap the “View Apple ID” option. From there, tap the Subscriptions option and choose Apple Music. Then, you should see the individual 1-year membership for $99. Simply tap that option to switch your account. Apple separately lists alternative steps to get an Apple Music annual membership. When we posted the initial launch of the plan, many commenters noted it wasn’t available for them. It’s worth another look today to see if anything has changed. The potential savings might be worth it for committed members, so take a look to see if your country is on the list. Thank You And Have A Great Day. The Mixdoctor Team Member of koditalk.org

  21. Apple in ‘panic’ mode as iPhone 8’s 3D face detection & wireless charging potentially delayed Apple’s trials and tribulations over the upcoming iPhone 8 have been well documented thus far and a new report this evening from Fast Company continues that trend. The report explains that Apple’s team of engineers and designers working on the iPhone are operating with a “sense of panic in the air” as we near the device’s unveil later this year… Furthermore, Apple is struggling to get the iPhone 8’s front-facing 3D sensor to work properly when paired with iOS. The issue again is not hardware related, but rather due to iOS itself. Like wireless charging, this feature too could be missing at launch and added via a later software update. Lastly, the elephant in the room: Touch ID. Today’s report explains that it’s “plausible” that Apple is still trying to decide where Touch ID will be located, as a report earlier today claimed. However, Fast Company’s source adds that “in all likelihood” Touch ID will be embedded under the OLED display. The iPhone 8 (which also could be called the iPhone Pro or iPhone X, according to today’s report) is expected to be announced this fall with a release shortly thereafter. It seems, however, that iOS 11.1, or whatever it may be, could be the bigger news this fall. What do you think of Apple potentially releasing the iPhone 8 without some major features enabled?

  24. Report: iPhone 8 to come in four color choices including new ‘mirror-like’ model Apple’s flagship iPhone this year is said to a have an OLED screen, an all-glass design, wireless charging, and much more. Now, Twitter leaker Benjamin Geskin is claiming that the device will come in four colors – one of which is a new mirror-like option… Not a whole lot is known about the new color option, but Geskin has shared an example of what the device could look like. It’s important to note that the image Geskin uses is actually an iPhone in a mirror case, but the overall idea is the same and can be seen below. It almost sounds as if the iPhone 8 will feature the mirror-like glass design of the old iPod models, seen above, but the mirror deign would likely wrap around the edges to the stainless steel bezels. Geskin’s claim comes from an unnamed source and follows a report from the generally reliable Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI. Kuo noted in his report that the iPhone 8 will be available in fewer colors than usual in an effort to maintain a “boutique” branding. KGI has a strong track record, but note that he said “fewer” colors, not necessarily ruling out a new mirror-like option. In the past, we’ve seen alleged iPhone 8 images emerge showing the device in black and white. If Geksin’s claim of a mirror option is true, it’s unclear what the fourth iPhone 8 color option would be, with gold and rose gold both potential options. One possibility is that Geskin’s source is confusing a new ‘mirror-like’ option with the jet black color, which is already rather mirror-like. In addition to Geskin’s new claim, YouTuber UnboxTherapy today shared a new hands-on video of an alleged iPhone 8 prototype that is believed to be a 1:1 CNC model produced from factory dimension information. The video offers a detailed look at the device and its overall size and design. Watch it below. Today’s iPhone 8 news comes following a pair of bombshell reports claiming the device won’t feature Touch ID at all, but instead new facial recognition technology. Other reports have claimed in-screen Touch ID, while some have said rear-facing Touch ID. What do you think of a new mirror-like iPhone 8 option? Is it something you would be interested in?
