Leaked photo alleges to show iPhone 7 antenna line has moved toward new phone's bottom

At least this looks like something I would expect from Apple. It also lends credence to a complete redesign of the phone, instead of some I’ve seen where the antennas just loop upwards along the curvature of what looks like a 6 or 6S. This actually makes the antenna lines look more seamless. I like it.

Apple adding 'native' ads that look like articles to News app

Yep…  but I don’t think it’ll happen to the same extent with News.  I like that you can turn News off at the system-level in Restrictions, and it doesn’t appear anywhere.
RSS never really took off, I find it ideal—but I’m not the average user.  To me, News seems like an abacus compared to Newsify hooked up to my Feedly account…

Apple adding 'native' ads that look like articles to News app

As the stats on Apple Maps proved, I think a surprising number of people are more willing to just use the apps that are already built in rather than shopping around for alternatives.

Why anyone would choose the News app over a good Feedly-compatible RSS app will now be even more of mystery ;-)

Rumor: iPhone SE to feature 4K video capability

If there is 4K video, that makes it a bit more likely that they’ll have a 128GB option, as that video takes up a lot of space….

DOJ raises stakes in iPhone case, Apple chief counsel calls DOJ filing a 'cheap shot'

I have my problems with Apple (For example, I think the upcoming product announcement, and the products announced there, are going to be a joke and a sign of Apple’s complete lack of innovation in recent years)
But I am very proud of how Apple is fighting the government on this.  And I speak as a Democrat who is generally supportive of a larger federal government role in many areas.  But the government is dead wrong here, and beyond that, I am disgusted at their tactics and distortions of the truth to try to win here.

Apple's Federighi officially debunks idea of quitting iOS apps to improve performance, battery life

The exception that proves the rule :)
Facebook cheated and declared itself a “VoIP” app a long time ago. In theory, Facebook did want to start providing telephony services, but ultimately this allowed them to gain background privileges that Apple wouldn’t normally allow, and I guess because it was Facebook, Apple chose to never really call them on that one.

For apps that behave properly, maybe. Facebook?

Apple draws both more support and more criticism in fight against FBI

There is a backdoor.already
Something crucial is apparently overlooked in the discussions over the backdoor.  iPhone and many other smart devices already have valid backdoors, namely, a fingerprint scanner or a set of camera and software for capturing faces, irises and other body features, which can be collected from the unyielding, sleeping, unconscious and dead people.
It is now known that the authentication by biometrics usually comes with poorer security than PIN/password-only authentication.  If Apple wants to claim that they are conscious of privacy and security, they could tell consumers to turn off the biometric functions.  If the authority wants to have those backdoors open, they could tell consumers to keep them turned on all the times.  And, security-conscious consumers could certainly refrain from turning them on.

French National Assembly votes to penalize smartphone makers

I hope all subjected companies cease selling phones in France. Let the French Government manufacture and sell mobile phones that would be subject to no privacy.

Fiat CEO says Apple shouldn't make its own car

Perhaps, just perhaps, they really are smarter than the average tech company and have no actual plans to spend billions getting into the auto manufacturing business.
What if… Apple is making a few prototype cars that completely transform and reimagine the overall driving experience, with the intent of patenting the concepts and technology? I’m certainly not aware of Apple making any acquisitions that smack of large scale auto manufacturing. They do, however, have a recent history of partnering with existing car companies to incorporate Apple tech into their designs.
For all we know, the much rumored Apple Car could be a Tesla that’s 100% controlled by Apple technology.

please read omegapart1cle. Apple should just stick to computers. In fact, I would suggest to focus more on IOS than consumer devices. Too much time spent on fluff that lasts only a few years.

Fiat CEO says Apple shouldn't make its own car

No, he’s trying to gently persuade Apple not to make a horrendous mistake.  There is no way that Apple can enter a business like this and not be a massive failure.  This isn’t at all, in any way, shape or form like when Apple entered the smartphone market.  Not even in the same universe.  They will spend a huge proportion of their cash, and show very little for it.

Sounds like he’s worried about being made irrelevant, the same way Apple made Nokia, RIMM and Windows Phone obsolete.

9.7-inch iPad Pro may have 12 megapixel rear camera

I’m one of those types that video records with an iPad. Yes, I know. The reason is battery life and so far I’ve been very happy to simply turn it on and let the thing go, especially if you have a mic connected to the dock connector that doesn’t have a power pass through. And while the iPad Air 2 is okay, it’s noticely more grainy than my iPhone 6plus in low light. This is welcome news and good jump, especially considering it may have Pencil support etc.

Report: iOS 9.3 may remove Apple Pencil navigation capabilities (Update: Apple says no)

Kind of kidding, but I do think this should be a wake up call for anyone that doesn’t get the level of control Apple retains over our ios devices.  What will Apple decide is “unauthorized” next?  I see the update from Apple, turns out this is still an “authorized” function so nothing to see here…

You’re kidding, right?

Report: iOS 9.3 may remove Apple Pencil navigation capabilities (Update: Apple says no)

I don’t understand the logic behind this. WHY cripple functions people have come to rely on? Is it ONLY because Apple wants you to ONLY use it their way, and not the way that naturally evolved over thousands of years by people using ACTUAL pencils?

Report: iOS 9.3 may remove Apple Pencil navigation capabilities (Update: Apple says no)

Please let this be true!  This is so awesome since they are using the capabilities of the pencil against the user.  With a cheap rubber tip stylus they can’t distinguish it from a finger and can’t prevent it from performing “unauthorized functions”.  Since they know it is an Apple ‘Pencil’ they can selectively create “unauthorized functions” as they see fit.  Kind of like a DVD saying “Function not available at this time” when you try to skip the previews.  Just a reminder of who really owns our iThings.

Report: iOS 9.3 may remove Apple Pencil navigation capabilities (Update: Apple says no)

It is not clear from the reports how much Apple will cripple the Pencil, for instance, in PDF mark-ups, highlighting text,, etc., is is critical.  Will that function be lost because the all-knowing don’t think it is the reason for the Pencil to exist?  I for one will not upgrade my Pro to iOS 9.3 if this blunder is in fact in the final release. It will also weigh heavily on my decision to upgrade my iPad Air to the new 3 that purportedly is going to have Pencil support in it.  I predict a backlash much like the one Adobe experienced when they deleted features from Lightroom; they quickly relented and restored the original feature set in an emergency point-release.  What Apple giveth, Apple taketh away.

Apple Pay reaches 2 million retail locations

Do people really think that Apple have anything to do with the roll-out of Contactless terminals to the worldwide retail environment. I just want to make this clear, they have no influence….none…whatsoever. How the Card industry has allowed the Apple marketing wagon to ride on the back of what was already happening and claim it themselves is beyond me. Clever mind…...

Alone, with the cost of AppleCare Plus :-)

Report: iPhone '5se' to have A9 + M9 chips, always-on Siri

Ahh just like the 6S and 6S Plus, didn’t think of that.

iOS 9.3's Night Shift may get Control Center button

It is make quite easier for the apple users to use this feature.I have been using Apple products for four years. I must say that it is a good initiative of Apple to prevent damage to the eye. But I don’t like this yellow light. It’s really irritating. So as a health conscious person, I am using “ocushield” screen protector to protect my eyes from harmful blue light.

It’s just the ability to say “Hey Siri” to activate Siri at any time.
