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…...

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.

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

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

What does “always on” Siri mean?? Either a battery killer or more fodder for conspiracy theorists.

California bill would require 'back door' access to encrypted phones

Purposely creating a backdoor will lead to exploitation by all kinds of various criminal elements. This is quite simply a horrible idea. An idea that I assume was created by politicians who have little to no knowledge regarding cyber security. No, that is too much credit as in this day and age it should really just be common sense that it isn’t wise to leave our electronic devices vulnerable to exploitations and hackers.

This is so sad if it goes through. If so, I hope Apple does something crazy like stop selling iPhones in California.

New York bill would force Apple to build a 'back door' into iPhone encryption

What does a phone being unlocked have to do with anything?
If this bill passes, you won’t be able to purchase an iPhone in New York… AT ALL. You would be forced to cross state lines to purchase the phone, unlocked or not unlocked.

“Smartphones don’t kill people, people do.” As an ex-New Yorker, I find these types of useless government regulations annoying.

Free ad-supported iTunes Radio to end Jan. 29

Surprised they didn’t do something for existing iTunes Match subscribers.  Personally, I only very occasionally used them, much prefer TuneIn…

Apple releases iOS 9.3 public beta

Installed this morning and nothing but problems with Bluetooth connecting to devices. Tried everything no luck. And of course I can’t go back. I forgot to make an backup before install.

New York bill would force Apple to build a 'back door' into iPhone encryption

So then NY’ers will be crossing state lines to purchase unlocked devices?  New Jersey should see an uptick in smartphone sales.  How would it effect firmware updates I wonder—a separate version for New York residents?  How would they enforce which firmware update a user installed?

Apple using new AAE sidecar format for iOS 8 photos?

Please help I’ve deleted the .AAE files off my iPhone 5 on the computer and it has removed the original images off my phone what can I do now?

Apple Music tops 10 million subscribers, Apple News numbers a mystery

I’m shocked there are that many people willing to pay for Apple Music.  I started with the free preview and liked the layout and features.  My problems is with all the bugs I encountered during the time I used it.  Music would randomly stop playing, songs would play out of order and the last straw was when all of my offline music and playlists were deleted after the last iOS update.
I’m back with Spotify for now.  I’m hoping in a few months things get smoothed out and I can switch back.

There should be at least an automated album called “Edited” where these pictures will show. Right?

Apple Watch 'four times' more accurate than iPhone at timekeeping

That’s kinda wacky, but awesome!

Apple files for Beats 2-5 trademarks

Or Apple may just be doing a defensive trademark filing in order to block others early on, possibly avoiding more expensive legal actions later.

Report: China Mobile points to new 4" iPhone in April 2016

This is so silly.  Apple really thinks there is a big enough market to release a 4” premium phone in 2015? (Despite any intimations to the contrary, a $400-$500 4” phone is still premium)
