Apple execs remain optimistic about Apple Pay, despite slow uptake

Worth noting that Apple has faced concerted action by three of four major banks here in Australia, wanting to create their own NFC apps and avoid Apple Pay. So most people’s credit cards aren’t working. To date, only the fourth national bank and American Express have adopted Apple Pay.
Many people think the banks’ concern centred on Apple’s fees for service. Anyway, the regulator, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, has just decided that the other three banks’ joint action was reducing competition. So maybe matters will improve now.

Apple releases minor iOS 10.3.1 security update

The rumour is that 10.3.2 may end support for 32 bit devices — specifically the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. This was based on the fact that the first iOS 10.3.2 developer beta doesn’t appear to be available for those models at this point.
This doesn’t appear to be the case for 10.3.1, which is by all estimations a minor update that was already in the pipeline when Apple released the 10.3.2 beta.
The discontinuation of 32-bit apps might come with iOS 11, but that’s mostly speculation with no firm evidence beyond a warning that comes up in iOS 10.3 for 32-bit apps stating that they “will not work with future versions of iOS.” Of course, since iOS 10.3.1 and iOS 10.3.2 are both “future versions of iOS” that could include iOS 10.3.2, or it may be iOS 11, or it could just be Apple paving the way so that there are no surprised when they eventually do pull the plug.

Apple releases minor iOS 10.3.1 security update

Thanks for sharing such an informative post.I saw an article saying that 10.3.1 will remove support for 32 bit apps. Are 32 bit apps working in 10.3.1? I may be forced to upgrade to an iPhone 7 now just so I can remain on 10.3.0.

Unboxing the new 9.7-inch iPad

As we noted, it’s a “quick first look.” We’ve traditionally done this for just about every new Apple product as soon as we receive them, as with battery and performance testing it takes a couple of days to get a proper review done.

Well that’s crap! I have a perfectly good phone that works great and now I won’t be getting updates! I’ll ride this phone till everything stops working.

Apple releases iOS 10.3 with Find My AirPods, Siri + CarPlay improvements

Biggest change most won’t notice is the move to APFS (Apple File System), which is quite significant IMO. Anyway my 7 plus updated no problem (also love the addition of night shift to MacOS Sierra).

Report confirms legitimacy of at least some of the stolen iCloud credentials being held for ransom

It’s pretty clear there has been no new breach.

Apple confirms iCloud and Apple ID systems have not been breached in response to hacker threat

Yup, likewise. Of course, as with most “hacks” like this, there are still a lot of people who are vulnerable due to poor security practices. I definitely know people who reuse passwords and haven’t changed them in a decade, so this at least makes for an opportunity to hopefully inspire those folks to start exercising more responsible security practices — hopefully not the hard way.

Not sure if anyone took this particular threat seriously. I’ve had 2FA on for awhile anyway…

Apple unveils new upgraded entry-level 9.7" iPad, replacing iPad Air 2

Thanks for catching that. We actually did notice the 128GB model as well, but somehow in the midst of all of the updates today, it got missed somewhere along the way.
You actually can see the prices if you go into the “Models and Pricing” section on the main iPad page. You won’t be able to place an order yet, but the prices are all there. The 128GB model starts at $429 for Wi-Fi only, with the Wi-Fi + Cellular versions at $130 for both models, pretty much as before.

The website also lists a 128 GB model, but since they aren’t on sale yet, you can’t see the price.

More than 180,000 apps could be rendered useless if iOS 11 dumps 32-bit support

On my iPhone I have at least a dozen apps that I use at least weekly, and some daily, that pop up the warning message at some strange interval that I have not been able to nail down.  If they can’t work with iOS 11, that is going to be a royal pain. I haven’t found anything that performs their functions as well or preferably better.

There’s some apps that have been flagged by this that while not updated are still highly useful.  I’ll be annoyed if they globally cut them off.

Siri leads voice assistants in language support

Siri is Nuance, the crappy voice recognition that you love to hate when you call the airlines, banks, etc.

Great…so even more people worldwide can be frustrated with Siri’s ineptness at understanding common phrases and commands.
