AirPlay 2 vs Google Cast: Which You Should Actually Use

Apple and Google compete in a whole host of areas, from mobile operating systems to music platforms, so it follows that they have competing streaming media protocols as well—something that we’ve been hearing plenty about at CES 2019. But how exactly do these technologies work? And how do they stack up against each…Read more...

Amazon's Blowing Out Refurbs of Apple and LG's Co-Designed 5K Display

Apple and LG teamed up to create one of the only 5K monitors on the market, and amazingly, one that can be driven by a single USB-C cable, if you have a compatible Mac. It’s tough to swallow (but honestly, not outrageously priced) at its usual $1300, but it’s a lot more tempting for $650 as a refurb.Read more...

Leaked Emails Reveal New Reason Apple, Qualcomm Parted Ways

The FTC argues that Qualcomm won’t sell chips if customers don’t also pay hefty licensing fees. Billions of dollars in chip supply deals involving Apple and Qualcomm may have actually collapsed over a squabble about software access, rather than the patent fees that sparked a bitter legal battle between the two technology giants, according to the emails seen by Bloomberg.

The Best macOS Apps That Actually Make Good Use of the Touch Bar

It’s fair to say that the Touch Bar—that little display strip above the keyboard on newer MacBook Pro laptops—hasn’t been the most successful of Apple’s recent attempts at innovation. It mostly sits unloved and unneeded, sacrificing keys that were useful for not much benefit. There are apps that try to make the most…Read more...

Tim Cook on iPhone Sales: We Need to Talk About Facebook

Just in case you weren’t already aware of this, Apple is super duper serious about privacy. In a new Time opinion piece, Tim Cook reiterated the company’s old talking points about how other companies (read: Facebook and Google) turn people’s personal data into a product that they can sell, sometimes without the user…Read more...

This Spinning Sleeve Makes Your AirPod Case Even More Fidgetable

As much I love my AirPods as headphones, the best feature of Apple’s wireless earbuds has always been their fidget-friendly charging case. I’m honestly shocked I haven’t broken the little magnetic lid from all the time I’ve spent absentmindedly clicking it open and closed to keep my hands busy. And now, thanks to Air…Read more...

It’s been a long time since the iPod was Apple’s most important gadget, and while the iPod Classic, the iPod Nano, and the iPod Shuffle are no longer available, the iPod Touch is still keeping the name alive.

TSMC's $39 Billion Wipeout Will Only Get Worse, Analysts Say

TSMC will struggle to plug the hole left by Apple Inc.’s declining smartphone orders in 2019, according to Sanford C. Bernstein’s Mark Li, who has told clients to prepare for the firm’s first annual profit drop in eight years. CGS-CIMB Securities’ Peter Chan, whose recommendation in October to sell the shares proved prescient, says TSMC’s still-high valuations will spook tech investors into owning cheaper alternatives in Asia and the U.S. instead. While a downturn is widely expected after Appl...

Apple’s COO Says Qualcomm Refused to Provide Chips for 2018 Phones

Williams’s testimony Monday in the Federal Trade Commission antitrust trial against Qualcomm, indicates the chipmaker forced Apple to use Intel Corp. modems exclusively in the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR released in September and October, rather than the decision being a choice by the Cupertino, California-based iPhone maker. Williams said he tried to negotiate with Qualcomm to provide Apple with chips for the latest iPhones, but the company refused.

This new case can wirelessly charge an iPhone from across the room

I realized recently that I've been taking wireless charging for granted. It may not provide the fast battery charging I want, but wireless charging does exactly what I need it to do. It tops up the battery while I'm not using the phone, without me having to reach mess with any cables. But in the near future, we'll have access to an even better wireless power delivery system, one that recharges gadgets through the air without the need to place them on a charging mat. This tech obvious...

In the fiscal year ended Sept. 2018, Apple generated 63 percent of its total revenue from the sale of iPhones and 20 percent of its total revenue in Greater China.

PCs Have a Lesson for the Smartphone Industry

Both Apple and Samsung blamed weak smartphone sales for recent disappointing revenue, at least in part. The smartphone market has entered a phase that the personal-computer industry hit several years ago: Devices are useful and good enough that people are buying replacements less often, which pinches sales of new devices. In the 12 months ended Sept. 30, shipments were about 260 million.(1) (The smartphone market is multiple times larger than PCs were even at their peak.

Imagining Apple’s Post-iPhone Future

Whether you blame economic headwinds in key markets such as China (as Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook did in a recent letter to investors) or the company’s own mistakes (as my Bloomberg Opinion colleague Shira Ovide has done), or any combination of these factors, Apple appears about to slide down the table of biggest smartphone suppliers by unit sales. In the medium to long term, the decline can only undermine Apple’s ability to feed off the “halo effect” from its installed base, estima...

Apple Shares Climb as Morgan Stanley Sees Revenue Issues as Temporary

Analyst Katy Huberty continues to see positives for the services division after revenue rose 18.3 percent year-over-year in the fiscal first quarter, down from 25 percent normalized growth in the prior quarter, she said, citing the company. As much as $425 million of the estimated $600 million shortfall may be attributed to AppleCare, which was hurt by the decline in iPhone sales, Huberty said in a note to clients. Apple rose 1.5 percent at 11:25 a.m. in New York, adding to Tuesday’s 1.9 perc...

Apple Supplier Skyworks Cuts Sales and Profit Forecasts

Chief Executive Officer Liam Griffin blamed the lowered outlook for the period ended Dec. 28 on "unit weakness across out largest smartphone customers." He didn’t mention Apple, but the iPhone maker is Skyworks’ biggest customer, accounting for about half of its revenue. "People were expecting a lot worse," Woo Jin Ho, Bloomberg Intelligence senior analyst, said. Skyworks gave its earlier first-quarter forecast on Nov. 8, a few days before other Apple suppliers began raising concerns about dis...

Tim Cook’s $12 Million Bonus for 2018 Is His Biggest Ever

Cook received a $12 million bonus for the year ended Sept. 29, the Cupertino, California-based company said Tuesday in a filing. Last week, Apple disclosed lower-than-anticipated demand for iPhones in China and elsewhere, and cut its revenue forecast for the first time in almost two decades. Four other Apple executives got bonuses of $4 million, bringing their total pay to about $26.5 million each, including salary and stock awards.

Samsung Joins Apple in the Revenue Estimate Hurt Locker

Earlier this month, tech giant Apple posted quarterly revenue projections of just $84 billion, much lower than its previous projections of $89 to 94 billion, setting off a “flash crash” in global currency markets.

Apple Faces ‘Informal Boycott’ From China Consumers, Says BAML

“According to a survey conducted by our colleagues in equity research, consumers in China and India are showing less interest in upgrading to an iPhone and more interest in upgrading to Xiaomi and Samsung,” Bank of America Merrill Lynch economists Ethan Harris and Aditya Bhave wrote in a recent note. “Apple sales may also suffer from a general redirection of Chinese demand away from U.S. products.

Samsung Feels Apple's Pain as Technology Slowdown Hits Sales

The South Korean company’s operating income fell to 10.8 trillion won ($9.65 billion) in the period that ended in December, according to preliminary results released Tuesday, falling short of the 13.8 trillion-won average of analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Deteriorating relations between the U.S. and China — Samsung’s two biggest export destinations — has hit demand for memory used in everything from personal computers to mobile devices, raising the pressure on a company struggling t...

Apple to Start Offering iTunes Movies and Shows on Samsung TVs

Coming ahead of the annual CES technology show in Las Vegas, Sunday’s move demonstrates Apple’s shift toward developing into a tech- and media-services company as sales of gear like the iPhone continue to wane. It’s “further evidence that Apple is willing to change its hardware-first approach and work with third parties to boost services revenue,” said Gene Munster, a longtime Apple watcher. Last week, after Apple shocked investors by saying iPhone sales missed expectations for the holiday qua...
