Apple announced during the earnings call this week that it generated $6.7 billion from iPad, however, since Apple no longer disclose iPad unit sales, we don't know how much of units the company sold. A report from research firm Strategy Analytics, on the other hand, suggested Apple shipped an estimated 14.5 million iPads in the fourth quarter of 2018.

To put that in perspective, Apple reported sales of 13.2 million iPads in 1Q FY18, therefore, the data suggests that iPad unit sales have grown nearly 10 percent on a year-over-year basis. Keep in mind, though, the average selling price of iPad has increased: the average selling price was $463 last year, while the average selling price of iPads was $445 in 2017.

Regardless, Apple continued to dominate the tablet market, surpassing Samsung's estimated 7.5 million tablet shipments in the quarter. Meanwhile, Amazon, Huawei, and Lenovo claimed the #3, #4, and #5 spot with an estimated 5.5 million, 4.6 million, and 2.3 million units shipped in the holiday quarter respectively.

This year, Apple is expected to launch iPad mini 4 and seven-generation of iPad with support for Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, both features were limited to iPad Pro models previously.

Previously, iPhone sales took a huge hit in Greater China, and many in the industry pointed their finger at Apple's overpriced strategy. Even CEO Tim Cook had admitted in the 1Q FY19 earnings report that pricing did have a significant impact on Apple's sales over the past period of time.

However, Apple quickly made a wave of price cuts on the Chinese e-commerce platform, including the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Judge from the current situation, price cut is what they call it the most "simple and rude" promotion method. Online retail giants Alibaba and Tmall data showed that as of January 29, iPhone sales were up by 76% in half a month since it started on the 13th.

Since January 11th, another online retailer Suning announced the iPhone price cuts on the same day, Suning Apple's traffic and sales both exploded. Among them, iPhone 8 and iPhone XR saw the biggest growth. As of January 30, sales of the Apple products on the Suning platform increased by 83%.

During this week's earnings call, Cook said that Apple is considering changing the pricing strategy in some emerging markets as well. Apple's first fiscal quarter of FY 2019 revenue was not as good as expected, largely influenced by Greater China and the sky-high price, among other factors. (Via Feng)

According to Bloomberg, Apple is planning to bring the triple-lens camera to the next-generation of iPhone XS Max, whereas the next-generation of iPhone XS and iPhone XR will be available in the dual-lens configuration. Max's third lens to offer a wider field of view, a wider zoom range, and able to capture more pixels.

The report says that some versions of the 2019 iPhone are being tested using the USB-C port, which may suggest that Apple plans to switch from the Lightning port to USB-C at some point. Apple also plans to upgrade the Face ID sensors, but expert the new iPhones will look similar to this year's models.

Furthermore, Bloomberg claims that iOS 13 will finally introduce the Dark Mode to enhance the visual experience of night use. Apple will also revamp the CarPlay in-vehicle system. Updates for the iPad is also said to in the work: Apple will introduce a new home screen layout for the iPad, the ability to tap through multiple pages of a single app, and improved file management system.

Apple is planning to expand the cross-platform apps initiative as well, making it suitable for developers to build apps that are compatible with both iOS and macOS systems. iOS 13 may also include the rumored Apple original content and Apple Magazine subscription service.

According to Apple, this is the first commercial airline to provide exclusive access to Apple Music through complimentary inflight Wi-Fi.

“With the addition of Apple Music on American flights, we are excited that customers can now enjoy their music in even more places. Subscribers can stream all their favorite songs and artists in the air, and continue to listen to their personal library offline, giving them everything they need to truly sit back, relax and enjoy their flight,” says Oliver Schusser, vice president of Apple Music.

“Our customers want to make the most of their time when flying with us. That’s why we’re investing in high-speed Wi-Fi, the newest movies, live TV and now Apple Music,” said Janelle Anderson, Vice President of Global Marketing at American.

Domestic customers with an Apple Music subscription will be able to stream 50 million songs, playlists and music videos beginning Feb. 1, says the press release.

On any domestic American Airlines flight, connect to the complimentary inflight Wi-Fi and open Apple Music. No additional fees, no hassle.

Samsung has begun mass production of 1TB eUFS (embedded universal flash storage) flash storage chips, it uses Samsung's fifth-generation V-NAND technology. It has been a hot topic for users that iPhones don’t include the microSD card slot to include double the storage. However, with a 1TB flash storage chip, there’s no need for a memory card, as the iPhone can reach the laptop-level storage.

In addition, to have higher capacity, eUFS technology is faster than the standard SSD and microSD memory cards, with a continuous read speed of 1000Mbps and a random read speed of 58000 IOPS. Even more impressive, the 1TB flash storage chip size is the same as the current 512GB one.

Samsung also claims that with 1TB storage, it will let you store 260 10-minute videos in 4K UHD (3840x2160) format. For comparison, the 64GB eUFS widely used in many current high-end smartphones is only capable of storing 13 videos of the same size.

As a leader in NAND flash solutions, Samsung has been supplying flash storage chips to Apple since 2017. This also means that the 1TB eUFS chip will eventually appear on the iPhone, and push the price even further. The 2018 iPad Pro is available in a 1TB version, which is the highest capacity it ever offered in the current iOS device lineup.

During Apple's Q1 2019 earnings call, CEO Tim Cook shared some data on the company's revenue and comment his view on certain subjects.

Among them, Apple News has a monthly active user base of 85 million. with the availability of Apple News business in several countries plays a key role. Apple Pay's business expanded strongly, with a transaction volume of 1.8 billion in 2018, a 100% year-on-year increase. Cook also mentioned that the Apple Music currently has 50 million paid subscribers.

While during today's call, Apple CEO Tim Cook was asked whether he thought that the pricing of the iPhone XR, XS, and iPhone XS Max was too high, in which he says that it's an issue in some emerging markets, and plans to rethink iPhone prices outside of US. The company has determined to go back to pricing that's "more commensurate" with what local prices were last year to boost sales. (Via Reuters)

Finally, Cook says that they will participate in original content and cable bundle, which he claims it will take place at a much faster pace this year through ways like the Apple TV, third-party television sets via AirPlay 2, which he pointed towards Apple's work on the original content that's expected to launch this year, and plans to offer to users through its TV app.

Apple has announced financial results for its 1Q FY1 that is ended December 29, 2018. The Company posted quarterly revenue of $84.3 billion, a decline of 5 percent from the year-ago quarter, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $4.18, up 7.5 percent, however, it did gain net quarterly profit of $19.965 billion, which is second-best ever quarter for Apple despite earning warnings it issued early this month.
“While it was disappointing to miss our revenue guidance, we manage Apple for the long term, and this quarter’s results demonstrate that the underlying strength of our business runs deep and wide,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Our active installed base of devices reached an all-time high of 1.4 billion in the first quarter, growing in each of our geographic segments. That’s a great testament to the satisfaction and loyalty of our customers, and it’s driving our Services business to new records thanks to our large and fast-growing ecosystem.”

According to Apple, it saw revenue from iPhone declined by a whopping of 15 percent from the prior year. However, total revenue from all other products and services were up to 19 percent, notably Services revenue reached an all-time high of $10.9 billion. Revenue from iPad has reached an all-time high as well, as its revenue from iPad grew 17 percent.

As for its fiscal 2019 second quarter, Apple provided the following guidance:
  • revenue between $55 billion and $59 billion
  • gross margin between 37 percent and 38 percent
  • operating expenses between $8.5 billion and $8.6 billion
  • other income/(expense) of $300 million
  • tax rate of approximately 17 percent

According to Indian website CompareRaja, looks like Apple will use release one of this year's iPhone in the so-called Cyclops design, which the camera molecule will be located in the central of the device. However, the site didn't know which model will adopt the design, but they suppose that it might the iPhone XS successor, as the phone will have a 5.8-inch OLED screen.

Furthermore, CompareRaja's source tells them that the phone will retain the standard ‘Silver’, ‘Gold’ and ‘Space Grey’ color options, and added that Apple could possibly add a new ‘Blue‘ color variant at the time of launch. Like this past year's iPhone XS, the device will be IP68 rated for resistance against water and dust.

In addition to that, the iPhone XIS will feature a big 4,000mAh battery and a USB Type-C port instead of Lightning, putting it inline with the latest iPads. But, it's looks like the phone will not be 5G compatible, meaning it will support 5G technology, this may due to Apple's ongoing legal dispute with smartphone chipmaker Qualcomm, who develops high-quality cellular moderns for phones.

A major FaceTime bug that is publicly broadcasting on the social media right now, which allows you connect to someone and hear their audio without the person even accepting the call, and raising up a huge privacy concern because you can force a FaceTime call with someone and listen to what they are saying, maybe even without being noticed by them.

To take advantage of the bug, all you have to do is add your phone number to your already started FaceTime call, then you will found that you have begun a group FaceTime call including yourself and the audio of the person you originally called, though they haven't accepted the call, which obviously creates a major FaceTime problem.

There appears to be no way to avoid this bug other than completely disable FaceTime on iOS and macOS, and Apple has said the issue will be fixed in a software update later in the week, in a statement to Axios: "We’re aware of this issue and we have identified a fix that will be released in a software update later this week."

For now, you can either delete the FaceTime app or just disable the feature completely under the Settings - FaceTime.

Update: Apple disabled Group FaceTime feature for now

According to Cheddar, Apple is discussing with developers to launch a new gaming subscription service, the report cites five anonymous people who claim that the new gaming subscription service would work like Netflix for games, meaning players can play a variety of games after paying a subscription fee each month. 

Apple began discussing the gaming-related subscription services with game developers in the second half of 2018. It's unclear how much it will cost, and what games Apple will offer. There are currently a large number of games available in the App Store for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. As of now, the game subscription service is still under discussion, and will it be finalized or not.
Apple is planning a subscription service for games, according to five people familiar with the matter. The service would function like Netflix for games, allowing users who pay a subscription fee to access a bundled list of titles. Apple ($AAPL) began privately discussing a subscription service with game developers in the second half of 2018, said the people, all of whom requested anonymity to discuss unannounced plans.
That said, it could bring more visibility to paid titles like Alto's Odyssey and Monument Valley rather than free-to-play games like Fortnite that makes money from in-app purchases. The report also details that Apple seeks to partner with developers as a publisher, oversees marketing, distribution, and other  departments.

In January of this year, Apple engineers and key personnel attended the CES 2019 tech trade show and looked at the parts and technologies that are indispensable for augmented reality (AR) glasses. At least six Apple representatives have visited the so-called Waveguides technology suppliers such as DigiLens, Lumus, Vuzix and WaveOptics, according to AppleInsider:

More than half a dozen incognito Apple representatives, including employees of known subsidiaries, visited AR waveguide suppliers at CES 2019, according to a person with knowledge of the meetings. Exhibitors at the expo included DigiLens, Lumus, Vuzix and WaveOptics, among others.
Waveguides are used to orient the structure that directs electromagnetic waves. the technology is widely used in AR glasses as a method of directing graphical information from an output source to one or more display planes located in front of the user's eyes. American startup company, Magic Leap, for instance, used the technology to launch a hybrid reality headset last year.

Apple's interest in AR has shown in many ways, multiple rumors have suggested that there are hundreds of employees working on the technology, however, CEO Tim Cook made a comment back in 2017 that the technology haven't reach to the state of being able to deliver the best experience. Still, a report in 2018 broke the news that Apple could release its AR glasses as soon as 2020.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is out with his latest research report, says  that 2Q19 iPhone shipments may be flat, and the year-on-year decline will be over soon. Although the 2Q19 iPhone shipments declined by about 14% year-on-year, they have improved significantly from just 29% in 1Q19 and believes that 2Q19 iPhone shipments will likely be better than the market consensus:

We maintain our forecast of 188–192mn units for 2019 iPhone shipments. We believe the downside risks of share prices for the Apple and iPhone supply chain are limited in the near term given that 2Q19 iPhone shipments will likely be better than the market consensus.
Kuo estimates that 2Q19 iPhone shipments to be about 3400 – 37 million units, which is slightly higher than the market consensus of 30 – 35 million units. Looking into later of this year, he expects 3Q19 and 4Q19 iPhone shipments to be approximately 44 – 46 and 67 – 71 million units, respectively.

Apple to announce final results for the holiday quarter on its upcoming earnings call this Tuesday, where the company is expected to report $84 billion revenue instead of the original estimated $89-93 billion, as it announced earlier this month.

The iOS 12.2 beta 1 was released to the developers this week, which includes references that provide us with general ideas of Apple’s proposed product releases in early 2019. Last night, developer Steve Troughton-Smith insists that he discovered evidence of the next-generation of iPad mini, iPad, and iPod touch, and it pretty much just revealed all of the blueprints for the March event.

While in bed last night, I was contemplating why Apple choose to update their iPad mini and iPod products this year instead of last year or next year. Finally, I have concluded that maybe the old models won’t receive the iOS 13 updates. If that’s the case, then the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus will not be able to update to iOS 13 as well, since they use the same processor (except iPhone 5s uses even older processor) as the iPad mini 4 and iPod touch 6. Here is why I think iOS 13 will stop supporting these devices:

Every time when Apple decides to update their iPad mini and iPod touch, it’s because the previous generation won’t get new updates anymore. For instance, iPod touch 6 was launched after iPod touch 5 no longer receive any updates. Another case is the iPad mini 4, which debuted when its predecessor stopped seeing new updates.

What do you think about it? Do you agree with me? Share your thoughts in the comment section down below!

Yesterday, Apple released the first beta version of iOS 12.2, and since then developers have dug in the update to find some relevant information about upcoming product and services, and so far they noticed the "Hey Siri" setup screen for AirPods, which hinting that the company is likely to release AirPods 2 very soon, now, a finding in the Apple News app shows that it will also release a magazine subscription service.

In 2018, Apple acquired the digital magazine app Texture, which leads many analysts to believe that Apple will ultimately launch its own magazine subscription service. According to 9to5Mac, Apple is indeed been working on it: in iOS 12.2 beta, a hidden landing page showed up, and Apple is going to call the service "Apple News Magazines", while we can clearly see that this is still for internal testing.

Apparently, users can complete subscriptions and view magazines directly in the Apple News app, and iTunes will process the payment, similar to how Apple Music works. Currently, the Texture app is still available in the App Store, where you can read over 200 magazines for $9.99 a month, including Time, National Geographic, Shape, and Newsweek.

Meanwhile, it's possible that Apple may launch the subscription service in March event, or plan to announce an all-in-one media subscription which will include Apple Music, its original content and magazines, alongside the announcement of the all-in-one bundle subscription, the company is also rumored to release the iPad mini 5 and 10-inch iPad model in the Spring.

According to the Indian blog MySmartPrice, Apple registered six new unreleased iPad models in the Eurasian Economic Commission database this week, including A2123, A2124, A2153, A2154, A2133 and A2152. These models may represent the upcoming new iPad mini and 10-inch iPad, as multiple sources have claimed Apple plans to launch it to replace existing Mini 4 and 9.7-inch model.

Often, fillings that appears in the Eurasian Economic Commission database can accurately predict new Apple products will be available very soon, which means that the new iPads are likely to be released in March of this year, considering it‘s the common month for both Apple's first event of the year and iPad refreshes, like March of Last Year, it introduced the low-cost iPad model with Apple Pencil support.

In October of last year, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple is developing a new version of the iPad mini. The new version of the mini will feature with a better processor, and the device will be released in early 2019. The last iPad mini update was in September 2015, while they lowered the price of the iPad mini in March 2017, so that the 128GB version is priced at $399.

In a rather surprising tone, Apple announced at CES this year that HomeKit and AirPlay for Smart TV will coming to brands like Samsung, LG, Sony. So after Apple released the iOS 12.2 beta 1 yesterday, which includes these new features, Developer Khaos Tian was able add the smart TV accessory to the Home app, he shared some of screenshots and videos on his Twitter account.

However, he did point out that the support for television in the Home app is just power and input for now, but he was able to rename the inputs, for example, HDMI 1 could be renamed into "Netflix". Furthermore, Tian showed a video where he can control his LG smart tvs with the Apple TV controls in the Control Center, and finally, he confirmed that smart TV will include the support for HomeKit automations.

According to Apple, you can easily play, pause, fast-forward, rewind, and adjust the volume on your TV in the future, and share or mirror almost anything from your iOS devices or Mac directly to your AirPlay 2–enabled smart TV, even better, Siri will also in charge of your TV, you can ask the virtual assistant to send a video to your TV, or play specific show in a specific room.

Apple issued the iOS 12.2 beta 1 update this afternoon, and developer Guilherme Rambo soon discovered a hidden setup screen that uses "Hey Siri" to activate Siri on AirPods via iPhone, which is not supported by the current AirPods, meaning that the second generation of AirPods is coming soon.

Users will be asked to set up the "Hey Siri" feature when pairing the AirPods to an iOS device for the first time. The biggest difference between using Hey Siri on the new AirPods is that AirPods itself recognizes and sends commands to the paired device, this means you don't have to take out your AirPods, as long as the iPhone is in your pocket and you can summon Siri.

It's been rumored for a long time that Apple to support "Hey Siri" for AirPods, Apple itself leaked some clues during the WWDC 2018 Keynote's presentation video, where you can see the heroine used AirPods to ask Siri how to get to Apple Park as fast as possible. 

Since the update includes this new setup screen, it is highly possible that Apple will soon debut the new AirPods, perhaps following the release of iOS 12.2.

Apple has released the first beta of its upcoming iOS 12.2, macOS 10.14.4, watchOS 5.2, and tvOS 12.2 update to developers. As always, these betas are available for download if you installed Apple's developer beta configuration profile, which can be requested by Going to Apple's Developer Center.

For iOS 12.2, Apple expands the availability of Apple News to Canada in both English and French. In addition. several tweaks are also being discovered, such as the support for TVs in HomeKit, an updated AirPlay icon, redesigned TV Remote interface in Control Center, a new option to Add Money to Apple Pay Cash, Safari will displays Not Secure when visiting websites without Https encryption.

For macOS 10.14.4, Apple is also making its Apple News available to Mac users in Canada, so now you can use the News app on your Mac as well. The update also includes support for automatic dark mode themes in Safari, meaning when you visit a website that offers a dark mode, the webpage will be turned into dark automatically.

Otherwise, we don't expect Apple introduce any new features to watchOS 5.2 (possible) and tvOS 12.2, it's most likely another update focus on bug fixes and speed improvements. 

It has been 35 years since Apple's late co-founder Steve Jobs introduced the Macintosh to the world, on January 24, 1984, at the annual shareholder meeting held at the Flint Center in Cupertino, Jobs took out the Macintosh from a bag. In celebration of the event, Apple CEO Tim Cook has tweeted the following words:

35 years ago, Macintosh said hello. It changed the way we think about computers and went on to change the world. We love the Mac, and today we’re proud that more people than ever are using it to follow their passions and create the future.
The original Macintosh computer was priced at $2,495 in the US, which is equivalent to more than $6,000 today. The technical specifications of this device include an 8HMz Motorola 68000 processor, 128KB of RAM, a 400 KB floppy disk drive, and a 9-inch black-and-white monitor with a 512×342 pixel resolution.

More importantly, the original Macintosh is also the first mass-market personal computer that featured a graphical user interface, built-in screen and mouse, System Software was the original Macintosh default operating system, however, was later officially renamed Mac OS ever since System 7.5.1.

According to a Bloomberg report, Apple hired a former Samsung battery executive as its new Global head of Battery Developments. Soonho Ahn, who was once served as SVP of Samsung SDI, a Samsung affiliate company that develops the lithium battery used in smartphones, joined Apple in December.

Considering that Apple has used Samsung batteries in the past and already makes its own A-series chip for iOS devices, plus rumors that the company is developing its own LTE chips and MicroLED display, Bloomberg believes that they take the step is to reduce its reliance on other suppliers as possible.
Apple has used batteries from Samsung SDI to power its own products in the past. The iPhone maker has been trying to reduce reliance on third-party components, and the notable battery technology hire suggests it may be doing the same for batteries. Apple has been working on its own MicroLED display technology for future devices, which would help wean itself off Samsung in other areas.
Perhaps Apple is planning to redesign its battery component to be not as too quick degraded over time. Among the most requested iPhone features, the longer lasting, a higher capacity battery is definitely on the list, so hopefully, this hire would provide some thoughts on how to further improve the battery.

Apple has announced in its Newsroom page that its mobile payment service, Apple Pay, is coming to major US retailers, such as Target, Hy-Vee, Taco Bell, Speedway, Casey's, and more. According to the company, with the addition of these retailers, Apple Pay to be available in 74 of the top 100 merchants in the US and 65 percent of all retail locations across the country.

Target, Taco Bell, Hy-Vee supermarkets in the Midwest, Speedway convenience stores and Jack in the Box are the latest merchants to support Apple Pay, the most popular mobile contactless payment system in the world that lets customers easily and securely pay in stores using their iPhone and Apple Watch. With the addition of these national retailers, 74 of the top 100 merchants in the US and 65 percent of all retail locations across the country will support Apple Pay
At the same time, the company also shared several new videos to its YouTube channel, highlighting the Apple Pay Cash feature that's available on iOS devices. Apple Pay Cash is a feature that Apple introduced way back in iOS 12 that allows user to send peer-to-peer Apple Pay payments to your friend and family using the Messages app, and the balance will keep on a virtual debit card in the Wallet app.

According to the Taiwanese media Digitimes, Apple will release the next-generation AirPods with "health monitoring" capabilities in the first half of 2019, the AirPods 2 will adopt a unique design and is expected to receive enthusiastic response from the market. However, the report didn't mention or cite any sources for the AirPods rumor, perhaps it was referring to a prediction made from Ming-Chi Kuo.

In terms of wireless headsets, Apple is set to release AirPods 2 sometime in the first half of 2019, and the new wireless earbuds with discrete designs to carry health monitoring functions are expected to receive enthusiastic market responses. Other brand vendors have all planned to launch wireless headsets in the year, with market competition seen to heat up soon.
In November last year, the new AirPods was added to the Bluetooth Special Interest Group's regulatory database, indicating that a new version of Apple's wireless headphone may be released soon. Although no new features were listed, AirPods in the database does support the Bluetooth 5.0 specification, while current AirPods support Bluetooth 4.0, and we expecting a wireless charging case for it coming soon.

Apple is also believed in the work for third-generation of AirPods, which is expected to be announced in 2020. The device will adopt a new design and may also improve waterproof performance. It's rumored that the third-generation AirPods will also include noise cancellation and increase the effective communication range with the iPhone or iPad.

The US Patent and Trademark Office approved an application for the term of Apple's "iPod Touch" trademark earlier this month, which extended the protection to "Hand-held units for playing electronic games; Handheld game consoles" under International Class 28 (games, toys, and sporting goods).

Since 2008, Apple's iPod Touch trademark protection has been under the international Class 9 (audiovisual and information technology equipment) with the following description So when Apple submitted the application, it also included a screenshot of the page, highlighting the "Gaming" text and using the red arrow to indicate the product name and "Buy" button.

Since the release of the iPod Touch, it has been viewed as a game device by many users, it's no wonder why Apple now thinks about expanding its trademark range. Perhaps it is just simple self-protection doing. However, a recent rumor suggests that Apple is considering to launch the 7th generation of iPod touch, but it is unclear whether today's news is related to this.

Apple's new application will be published on February 19th and will be consulted. If there is no third party objection, the new trademark will be approved later this year.

OLED iPhones:

According to the Wall Street Journal, all iPhones are likely to adopt OLED screen in 2020, completely ending the LCD screen era. Today's report further confirmed the possibility of Apple switching to OLED entirely; and mentions that Apple's LCD supplier JDI is seeking investor help to consolidate its position as a supplier since iPhones moves to OLED only, makes this rumor more practical.
Japan Display Inc. is in advanced talks with Taiwan's TPK Holdings Co. and Chinese state-owned Silk Road Fund about an investment that would include a stake of about 30% with the possibility of greater control later, people familiar with the matter said.

AirPower Available Later This Year:

DigiTimes now reports that the highly anticipated Apple's wireless charging mat AirPower has entered mass production and will be officially released later this year. In September 2017, Apple previewed the AirPower wireless charging mat, which was originally planned to be available in 2018, but until today, the accessory still has no definite release time.

Last year, DigiTimes reported that AirPower will be available for sale at the end of March 2018, and obviously it has not become a reality. Earlier this month, Hong Kong website ChargerLAB announced that supply chain sources said that both Luxshare Precision and Pegatron have begun the production of AirPower.

Last week, it was reported that Apple is working on a new generation of iPod touch that leads new hope to many users, after all, Apple did not give up this device. Now, designers is out with an iPod Touch 7 concept, which uses Apple's notch design, and the screen size is up to 7 inches (resolution 1920 × 1080 pixels), but the overall effect looks good. (Via Rozetked)

In terms of configuration, the iPhone XS-inspired iPod touch concept comes in an A11 processor and has 2GB of memory, with options of two storage 128GB and 256GB. The notch also contains the so-called TrueDepth camera system, which means it supports Face ID, while also including the wireless charging and NFC capabilities.

The designer's starting point for creating this concept is it’s just an iPhone that can’t make phone call, so aside from not being able to place a phone call , the rest of the configurations and features are all in line with the iPhone XS.

Otherwise, the rumors also claimed that in addition to the iPod touch, Apple is developing a new iPad mini model as well, both of which are expected to be available this year. In the meantime, Apple is said to launch another 9.7-inch in 2019, with upgraded processor and perhaps support for USB-C.

In a press release today, Apple announced that its Everyone Can Create curriculum is now available in more European languages, which includes German, French, Spanish and Italian, whilst the free project guides will also be available in Swedish and Dutch this spring.

Everyone Can Create is meant to help students develop and communicate ideas through music, video, drawing, and photos on an iPad, it integrates creativity into lessons and assignments that help students develop new skills and new ways to express themselves throughout their school day. In Europe, Apple says the guides have downloaded nearly 100,000 times and is available on Apple Books right now.

In addition to announcing the Everyone Can Create curriculum support in more languages, Apple has also shared its charitable and volunteer efforts. The company says that its internal Giving program has raised more than $365 million for non-profit organizations around the world since it began the program eight years ago, and donated more than $125 million in 2018 alone.

The press release features almost a dozen photos of where Apple employees volunteer their time, in fact, volunteered more than a quarter of a million hours. Across the globe, Apple employees visited schools to help teach coding, drawing, photography, music, and video, as well as sorting and distributing food at heavily-damaged places, and how employees matching donations to charitable organizations.

iPhones are pretty much waterproof nowadays, the latest models, iPhone XS, for example, is IP68 rated waterproof, which means it is able to resistants depth of 1.5m underwater for up to thirty minutes. iPhones work quite well after underwater, can't say the same thing regarding the speakers though, it will sound goofy following the water enters the speaker grill, and may take some time to clean up.

However, the problem can be easily solved with a clever Siri shortcut, which it plays high-frequency sounds and immediately forces water to flow out of the speaker grill. The Water Eject shortcut works like the water ejection feature on the Apple Watch, and it can also be ejected by playing sound through the speakers.

Thanks to the YouTube channel iDeviceHelp, you can now eject water from your iPhone's speakers by clicking this link and download the Shortcuts, then run it by tapping on the Shortcuts, and finally tap on ‘Begin Water Ejection’ and you should start to see water coming out of speakers.

Recently, Apple's two new patents have been revealed. The patent describes a complex system that allows users to control their Apple devices through wrist movements without touching the screen. In addition, the user can take pictures by pointing the iPhone's camera at something.

One of the two patents is entitled "Apparatus and method for automatically activating a camera application based on detecting an intent to capture a photograph or a video". The patent specifies if the device's accelerometer "determines that it has remained in a stationary portrait or landscape position for a period of time," the camera software will automatically launch. However, if there is something near to the camera, then the software won't start.

Another patent is named "Interacting with an electronic device through physical movement" proposes displaying a simple screen puzzle on the Apple Watch that controls the puzzle through the movement of the wrist to perform certain functions, such as making a call. When the call is received, the watch screen will showcase a series of interconnected tubes and a virtual ball. The user tilts and rotates their wrists to move the ball to several possible target positions, representing a call is being answered or hang-up call.

This is only a patent, it does not mean that it will be actualized, but currently, Apple Watch has supported the way of waking up the screen by lifting your wrist, the realization of these somatosensory actions may truly become a reality.

Undeniable, iPad Pro is the most powerful iPad ever. The third-generation iPad Pro is also considerably closer to being a MacBook than an iPad. Knowing this, Apple published new ads that show off the iPad Pro’s powerful productivity capabilities.

On Friday, Apple published a series of iPad Pro ads that highlight the tablet as a productivity powerhouse. The advertisements prove that Apple isn’t just positioning the iPad Pro has either a tablet or laptop, instead, as a tool that allows you to do things differently.

Image: Apple's YouTube Channel
The ads, five in total, highlight how to start a podcast, create a presentation, go paperless, use AR to design a space, and how to record notes on iPad Pro.

Following the third-generation iPad Pro announcement during Apple’s “There’s more in the making” event, it has been continuously praised for being “faster than most PC laptops.” The performance is thanks to the A12X Bionic chip that is “the smartest, most powerful chip, ever,” according to Apple.

The performance of the new iPad Pro is further highlighted within each of the advertisements Apple has published to date, including the new ones.

Mircosoft has announced that the support for Windows 10 Mobile device will stop on December 10, 2019, and the software giant is now recommending that current Windows 10 users choose either Android or iOS devices, Microsoft provides this advice in the Windows 10 Support document. At the same time, it will stop providing security updates and patches to Windows 10 Mobile.

Microsoft ended Windows Phone support in July 2017 and closed Windows 10 Mobile active development in October of the same year, which directly led to the death of the platform. Due to the lack of app developers, the number of Windows 10 Mobile apps is small and the basic user base cannot be established.

Furthermore, Microsoft is also announcing that its AI assistant Cortana will no longer be a competitor of Google Assistant and Amazon Alxea. Instead, CEO Satya Nadella says that he seeks Cortana could integrate with the popular platforms rather than fight against them, and it has already partnered with Amazon to bring the integration to Alexa users, while it continues to negotiate Google on the matter.

It's very clear that Microsoft began to focus on app development on other mobile platforms: it launched several apps for iOS and Android, such as Microsoft Edge, Translator, Azure, OneDrive, and so on.

Apple has officially made the HomePod smart speakers available to users in China and Hong Kong today, users can go to or Apple Store App to place an order, and can be delivered within one working day. The speaker is available in two colors, white and space gray, for 2,799 yuan. The company's marketing chief Phil Schiller said in a statement about the launch:

We're excited to bring HomePod to our customers in mainland China and Hong Kong markets. We can't wait for them to experience how great it sounds in their home, we think they are going to love it.
Like the mainstream smart speakers on the market, HomePod has an always-on voice assistant and the ability to connect to other devices for smart home controls, but Apple is also concentrating on its differences from other smart speakers. Sound quality is a differentiating factor in HomePod: can create a rich, full and delicate experience for those music lovers.

HomePod matches with Apple Music perfectly, although it don't music streaming service like the QQ Music or Spotify, you can still play songs from third-party apps via AirPlay. Additionally, users can ask Siri to do tasks such as send a text message, control HomeKit devices, or even make a phone call with it, and Apple specifically added the "play bedtime story" command only to the Chinese market.

According to the Nikkei, major Apple suppliers from Asia have already lowered their revenue forecast for 2019, and some attributed it to an “extraordinary" decline in demand from China. This news comes after Apple adjusted its revenue estimate for 4Q 2018, from the previous $89 billion to $84 billion.

Among them, TSMC, the core supplier of Apple's A-series chips, dropped its revenue forecast for the first quarter of 2019 at the latest earnings conference, which is expected to fall by 22%. The company said that high-end smartphones have seen a "sudden drop in demand" and blamed the slump in revenue to the US-China trade war and economic uncertainty.

Nidec, another Apple supplier that supplies the iPhone's vibration motor, has a similar situation. The company cut its 2019 full-year revenue outlook ""We have faced extraordinary changes," Nidec Chairman Shigenobu Nagamori told reporters at a Thursday news conference as the company reversed a previous forecast of a record profit"

Multiple reports suggest that Apple asked its suppliers to cut iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max production by 10 percent for the next three months, mainly due to the impact of iPhone sales in Greater China. For this reason, Apple has taken a number of measures to awake the Chinese market.

New iPads:

Apple will release at least two new iOS devices in the first half of this year, according to sources from the supply chain via Digitimes, and suppliers are preparing to produce two new iPads, both new iPads are "entry-level" versions, including the much anticipated iPad mini 5 and the new iPad.

However, the DigiTimes report does not mention the features of the new iPad, but several reports have indicated that Apple will launch the new iPad in 2019. Ming-Chi Kuo, for example, predicted that the new iPad mini would use a cheaper display panel and a faster processor. On the other hand, a report from China said the new iPad will replace the current 9.7-inch iPad with a 10-inch display.

iPhone XR 2 With Better LTE Performance

According to the latest research report from Barclays, the next-generation iPhone XR will use a 4x4 MIMO antenna design. 4x4 MIMO refers to Multiple-Input Multiple-Output, which means that the next iPhone XR will be featured with 4 antennas to improving faster data speed. The current iPhone XS and XS Max uses the 4x4 MIMO antenna design, whereas the current iPhone XR uses 2x2 MIMO.

A few months ago, PC Magazine reported that the LTE performance of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max was "significantly better" than the iPhone XR, it show that this difference is especially noticeable under weak signal conditions. Of course, no matter how many antennas the iPhone has, the speed will be affected by factors such as network congestion, distance from the tower, physical obstacles, etc.

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10 series, which is on schedule to be announced on February 20th in the Unpacked event, will see a major overhaul when it comes to design. as it's said to feature the so-called hole-punch display, a front-panel cutout that’s literally just the camera, similar to the Notch on the iPhone XS.

However, an early benchmark suggests that the Galaxy S10 + cannot keep up Apple's 2018 flagship, the iPhone XS in terms of performance, yet, it even worse than the previous year's iPhone X. (Via Slashleaks)

Slashleaks shared allegedly Galaxy S10 Geekbench screenshots, shows that the device configured with Snapdragon 855 chip, 6GB memory, has a single-core score of 3,413 and a multi-core score of 10,256. In contrast, iPhone XS has a single-core score of 4,797, multi-score of 11,584. Somewhat surprisingly, even the iPhone X outperforms the S10, with a single-core score of 4243, and a multi-core score of 10,433. 

This is the advantage of Apple's self-developed chips and operating systems, even though the clock speed is lower than Snapdragon 855, fewer cores, and less memory, but the performance is far better than its competitors. Bear in mind, though, benchmarks don't represent the real world usage, just because it has higher scores, it does not mean that it open apps slower than iPhone XS or iPhone X.

A new Bloomberg piece out today alleges that Apple plans to reduce the number of hiring in some divisions in the context of declining iPhone sales and lower-than-expected revenues during the holiday season. Meanwhile, emphasizing the decline in iPhone sales is also an opportunity for new innovations.

After Tim Cook issued a letter to shareholders earlier this month, he held an all-hands meeting with employees, where the CEO was asked whether the company would take a freeze on hiring in response. Cook said at the time that he did not think the move was an ideal solution. However, Cook said that some departments should "cut back on hiring",

Cook said he hasn't completely decided which divisions will cut back on hiring, but he said that core units like the Apple AI team will still greet newcomers at a faster pace. He also emphasized that the rate of hiring does not measure the importance of the sector to Apple's future. Moreover, the cut on hiring will not affect Apple's new Campus in Austin, Texas, or the expansion of the California area.

Apple has been actively hiring new staff for the past decade, but the growth in the number of employees has slowed in recent years. Apple added a total of 9,000 employees in the last fiscal year to a total of 132,000 employees. and added about 7,000 employees in the previous year. 

After Apple released the iPhone XS Smart Battery Case yesterday, owners of iPhone X have wondered that if the case will also works for their devices, even though Apple only specifically mentioned that the case is compatible with the XS, iMore's Rene Ritchie, however, claims that iPhone X is compatible with the case.

Ritchie explains that when he putting Smart Battery Case on the iPhone X running iOS 12.1.2, he received an error suggesting it was not compatible with the case, but when he updating his iPhone X to iOS 12.1.3, he was able to charging the handset with the iPhone XS Smart Battery Case. And when an incompatibility pop up, just dismiss it, and will still charge your phone, though the fit is imprecise.

Apple touts that the new Smart Battery case for the iPhone models adds 30+ hours of talk time, 20+ hours of internet use and video playback thanks to its larger battery capacity than previous one. It is now available for order at with the price of $129 and comes in black or white color.

Apple's long-awaited wireless charging mat, AirPower, which was rumored in production, mentioned in the product description of the new Smart Battery Case for the iPhone XS Apple Malaysia website, however, the description in the United States and other countries only mentions compatibility with Qi-certified chargers.

In the description, Apple says: "the Smart Battery Case is compatible with AirPower Wireless Charging Mat and other Qi‑certified chargers". So it's clear that Apple was originally plan to launch the accessory alongside the Smart Battery Case, but was unable to release because of some technical challenges.

A report from last weekend, however, suggested that Apple was ready for the AirPower to begin mass production. The report especially says that Apple suppliers Luxshare Precision Pegatron has begun the production of AirPower wireless charging mat. And, If AirPower is finally coming, then the AirPods wireless charging case should also be available soon.

We expect Apple to announce the launch of AirPower and AirPods wireless charging case in a press release within a month from now.

According to a report from Axios, a new name has appeared on the list of Intel's candidate CEOs, Johny Srouji. Intel has spent half a year looking for a new CEO, and Johny Srouji has worked with Intel for many years. Currently, Johny Srouji is Senior Vice President of Hardware Technologies at Apple.

From 1990 to 2005, Johny Srouji worked in the Intel Israel department for 15 years, and IBM for 3 years. he later joined Apple in 2008 and has led the development of Apple's first self-designed chip, the A4. Srouji also oversees custom silicon and hardware technologies including batteries, application processors, storage controllers, sensors silicon, and other chipsets across Apple's entire product line.

It will have a pretty big impact on Apple if Intel appoint him as the new CEO, as Srouji and his team responsible in the development of Apple's A-Series chip, which led mobile industry in terms of performance, also the plans for an ARM-based Mac may not become a reality, plus Apple is rumored working on its own cellular moderns.

Intel's former CEO, Brian Krzanich, resigned last summer, and Intel's board of directors later appointed Robert Swan, then chief financial officer, as the company's interim CEO. As of now, Intel declined to comment on Apple’s vice president Johny Srouji report on the candidate CEO’s list.

Apple today released the Smart Battery Case for 2018 iPhones. Each case comes in black or white and is priced at $129, cases are similar in design to the past battery case option Apple offered for the iPhone 7, with a bump at the back to house a battery pack, perhaps more importantly. it supports Qi charging.

The Smart Battery Case is compatible with Qi-certified chargers. You can charge your iPhone and battery case simultaneously for increased talk time up to 33 hours, Internet use up to 21 hours, and even longer audio and video playback.* With the Smart Battery Case on, the intelligent battery status is displayed on the iPhone Lock screen and in Notification Center, so you know exactly how much charge you have left.
Apple touts that the new Smart Battery case for the iPhone models adds 30+ hours of talk time, 20+ hours of internet use and video playback. However, the newly-released Smart Battery Case doesn't compatible with the iPhone X, as the camera bump on the iPhone XS being slightly taller because of the larger camera sensor compared to the iPhone X.

You can order the Smart Battery Case for iPhone XSXS Max, and XR right now, with estimated delivery date next week or so.

Ar the end of 2017, Apple adjusted the iPhone battery replacement price to $29, down from previous $79 price. From the beginning of the end of 2017, to December 31, 2018, Apple replaced a total of 11 million iPhone batteries, and that means it earned nearly $319 million during the period.

According to Daring Fireball, Tim Cook shared this data in the all-hands meeting with Apple employees. If Apple didn't adjust the price of iPhone battery replacement, then the company could only replace 1-2 million batteries, suggesting that Apple replaced approximately 9 to 10 million more batteries than average.

Cook believes that battery replacement program is one of the reasons 2019 Q1 fiscal quarter revenue below expectations, meaning that users choose to replace the iPhone battery, instead of buying a new iPhone. Although Apple knows the battery replacement program may affect iPhone sales, it was until the iPhone XS, XS Max received fewer upgrades, Apple wasn't aware the seriousness of the problem.

The discounted replacement program comes after Apple was found to throttle performance of iPhones when the battery become degraded, so they introduced the so-called Power Management feature to smooth out the high power draw peaks that can result in shutdowns and prevent devices to "deliver the best experience". Apple then apologized for its wrong doings and announced the program.

According to a report from the Japanese blog Macotakara, Apple is possible in the work for an updated iPod touch, however, the report is unable to provide further details as for release date of the devices. The report also claims that like the 2018 iPad Pros, 2019 iPhones “might” make the switch to USB-C.

Apple last time updated the iPod touch is in 2015, where it upgrade the processor from A5 to A8, and the camera got somewhat upgrades as well, which added an 8-megapixel rear camera instead of the 5-megapixel sensor. The iPod touch is indeed the last members of the iPod family, ever since Apple discontinued the iPod shuffle and iPod nano in 2017.

As for the switch to the USB-C on 2019 iPhones, though the site cited the rumor from "those who are working on it", it has not reached a design reference step, which means that Apple is deciding whether or not to make the switch to USB-C over Lightning this year. This is already the third times we learned that Apple plans to introduce a USB-C port for the iPhone rather than Lightning ports.

What do you think?

Lately, it seems like the sales of Apple's iPhone have encountered some obstacles in China, and at the same time, the company's performance in the Indian market is also very unpleasant to look at. According to a new report from market research firm Counterpoint Research, the Cupertino giant’s iPhone sales in India fell by 50% year-on-year and only had 1.20% of market share last year.

Counterpoint says that Apple just sold 1.7 million units in the year 2018. In comparison, iPhone shipments in 2017 were 3.2 million units. The sharp drop in iPhone shipments in the Indian market can be attributed to Apple's high pricing and fierce competition from its competitors.

From 2014 to 2017, the size of Apple's Indian business actually doubled from 1.5 million year-over-year to 3.2 million. Sadly, Apple's iPhone sales in India last year suddenly fell back to three years ago, Counterpoint suggests that it is likely due to the rise of OnePlus that offers similar features at a cheaper cost.

Hopefully, the launch of some low-priced iPhone models may attract local consumers to buy products from Apple, such as the second generation of iPhone SE, which we aren't even sure if it really exists.

If your Apple Music subscription is not the Family plan, you won't be able to play different music on your HomePod and iPhone. Previously, individual Apple Music account could able to play different music on HomePod and iPhone, however, Apple says it was a bug in the first place that has been fixed until recently.

Otherwise, if you want to continue playing different music on your HomePod and iPhone, you need to upgrade your Apple Music subscription to the family membership. "An Individual Apple Music membership allows you to stream on a single device at a time; a Family membership allows you or your Family members to stream on up to six devices at a time", according to Apple Music's policy.

Speaking to HomePod, the Siri-enabled smart speaker is finally coming to China and Hong Kong on January 18th, which will be available in white and space gray, and is priced at 2,799 Yuan. Though, Amazon's Echo speakers aren't available for purchase in China, HomePod will still face competitions from various AI speakers from Chinese brands like Xiaomi and LingLong.

“We’re excited to bring HomePod to our customers in mainland China and Hong Kong markets. We can’t wait for them to experience how great it sounds in their home, we think they are going to love it," says Phil Schiller, Apple's marketing chief.

The Siri Shortcuts have enabled a lot of possibilities of what we can do on iOS. Yes, we realize that Apple doesn't offer a way to schedule text messages, however, you can now schedule text messages thanks to the Siri Shortcuts so you will be able to draft text message in advance and schedule it to be sent out on a later date. Here is how to do add it to your iOS 12 devices:

  1. Download the Shortcuts by clicking this link
  2. Whenever you want to schedule a text, just tap on it
  3. Select someone in your Contacts
  4. In the Enter Text filed, enter the message you want to schedule
  5. Then select Date and Time to when should this be sent
  6. And that's it
Here are a couple of things to bear in mind though: first, you need to turn on the Background App Refresh in order for this to work; further, you can't run any other Shortcuts during the time, lastly, you can't close the app; otherwise, there is no restriction whatsoever. Hopefully, this Shortcuts would come in handy when you are busy doing other stuff.

Apple's wireless charging mat AirPower, an accessory that the Cupertino tech-giant promised to release in 2018, which it didn't, likewise it officially missed the deadline; and has not been released for more than a year after its release. However, the wait is likely to be over pretty soon, as the AirPower is said to have already started mass production and will be available purchase shortly.

The news comes from the Twitter account ChargerLab, who have learned from the credible sources of the supply chain that Apple supplier Luxshare Precision has begun the production of AirPower wireless charging mat. It is worth stating that Luxshare is also responsible for the manufacturing of AirPods and USB-C cables.
Breaking: AirPower is finally coming. We just learned from credible source in supply chain that the manufacture Luxshare Precision has already started producing Apple AirPower wireless charging pad. Luxshare Precision is also the maker of Apple AirPods and USB-C cables.
If AirPower is finally coming, the next-generation AirPods wireless charging should also be available soon. We expect Apple to announce the launch of AirPower and AirPods wireless charging case in a press release, as the company is questionable to host an event just for these two products.

In addition to WSJ, Barclays also released a new report on the prediction of iPhone 11 today, in which mentions that the 2019 iPhones to support the latest generation of WiFi technology, specifically WiFi 6 (802.11ax), it will be featured with improved Face ID sensor and new antenna technology.

In November of last year, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that the 2019 iPhone to welcome the improved Face ID. To enhance the Face ID user experience, Apple will upgrade the VC illuminator's VCS to reduce the ambient invisible light. influences. Similarly, Kuo added that the 2019 iPhones will feature the new Modified PI (MPI) antenna technology for better yields and higher performance.

Speaking to 2019 iPhones, Barclays believes that these models will not support the 5G technology, yet, Apple considered want Samsung and MediaTek (and existing supplier Intel) supply 5G modems for this year's iPhones, as it continues fighting against Qualcomm on the patent disputes. Unfortunately, he did not mention whether Apple has made a decision on the 5G moderns supplier, so Apple is expected to hold off 5G for at least another year.

The 2019 iPhone is rumored to look alike to the 2018 iPhone lineup: an LCD model with Dual-lens rear camera, two OLED models, and the larger one is likely to be featured with the triple-lens camera, alongside A13 chip, USB-C port, improved Face ID, etc. Though all models are expected to drop 3D Touch support.
