Mark Gurman, reporting for Bloomberg: Apple wants to make it easier for software coders to create tools, games and other applications for its main devices in one fell swoop -- an overhaul designed to encourage app development and, ultimately, boost revenue.

A short trip to India showed me just how badly Apple is screwing up in the world's biggest democracy

Apple has failed to crack the Indian smartphone market, languishing behind Chinese brands with less than a 2% share of the market. During a family visit to India, I noticed Apple doesn't have much retail or advertising presence and that it mostly advertises the "cheaper" iPhone XR. The iPhone XR is still too expensive for most Indians, and iPhones overall cost more to buy in India than in other countries. CEO Tim Cook seems to be trying to replicate Apple's Chinese strategy in India, which has...

Google is working on a cheaper new smartphone that could rival the iPhone XR, report says

Google is working on a new low-cost smartphone that would be less expensive than the $749 iPhone XR, according to a new report. It's said to be part of an effort to lure new users into Google's software and services ecosystem. The launch would come as Apple grapples with slowing iPhone sales.  When Google launched its first Pixel phone in 2016, it was largely perceived as being the search giant's first premium-grade smartphone that put the company in direct competition with Apple's iPhones. N...

Apple's rumored video streaming service won't include Netflix, report says

Netflix will not participate in Apple's rumored video streaming service, according to a new report. HBO's inclusion is also unclear. Apple is aiming to launch its video offering in April or early May, as a previous report has also indicated.

Apple CEO Tim Cook says he will investigate the Saudi government app branded "abhorrent" by a US senator following an investigation by Business Insider's sister site INSIDER. INSIDER reported extensively how the online app Absher helps men control where women travel, pushing alerts when they use their passports to leave the country. On Monday, Sen.

Here's why Angela Ahrendts' departure could be a good thing for Apple (AAPL)

Angela Ahrendts' resignation could end up being a good thing for Apple. Ahrendts, who headed up the company's retail operations, was charged with remaking Apple as a luxury brand. That strategy has resulted in higher prices for Apple's products, which have depressed sales. With Apple's revenue falling and its iPhone sales plunging, it could use a new approach. Angela Ahrendts' departure from Apple may end up being a blessing in disguise for the iPhone maker. A big part of Ahrendts job was to ...

Tim Cook-backed shower startup Nebia shows off a warmer, water-saving shower head

I’m not in the habit of getting naked during meetings at startup offices, but this time it felt appropriate. Nebia, a shower startup that has attracted investments from the likes of Apple CEO Tim Cook and former Google chairman Eric Schmidt’s foundation is back with some new cash (though it won’t divulge how much) and a new generation of its thoughtfully designed shower heads that aim to dramatically reduce the amount of water people use while cleaning up. After a lengthy chat with Nebia CEO Ph...

The Incredible Pressure of Building a Shower Head—One With the Potential to Save a Billion Gallons of Water

After years of tough engineering challenges, the Nebia 2.0 is a feat of elegant industrial engineering that pulls inspiration from agricultural irrigation, office furniture, and fuel injection.  California was in a drought—its worst in recorded history. And for much of 2014, Bret Recor had been trying to convince a Mexico City-based hardware team to show him a showerhead that they had designed to cut water use by as much as 85 percent. Now, he was finally sitting in a San Francisco hotel room,...

Apple fails to block porn & gambling “Enterprise” apps

Facebook and Google were far from the only developers openly abusing Apple’s Enterprise Certificate program meant for companies offering employee-only apps. A TechCrunch investigation uncovered a dozen hardcore pornography apps and a dozen real-money gambling apps that escaped Apple’s oversight. The developers passed Apple’s weak Enterprise Certificate screening process or piggybacked on a legitimate approval, allowing them to sidestep the App Store and Cupertino’s traditional safeguards design...

Facebook and Twitter are following in Apple’s footsteps by hiding some of their most important numbers. Here’s why investors should be concerned (AAPL, TWTR, FB)

Apple, Facebook, and Twitter each announced recently that they would stop disclosing some important data to investors. Each said other figures better depict the health of their business. But when companies cease reporting certain figures, it's often a sign those particular results are starting to deteriorate. Apple is a case in point; immediately after it announced it would no longer report the number of iPhones it sells, its smartphone sales started to drop. It's usually not a good sign when...

New figures highlight the iPhone’s rough quarter in China

When Apple issued revised guidance for its quarterly earnings last month, the company singled out China as a primary driver for its disappointing result. Sure enough, iPhone revenue declined 15 percent year over year, and now IDC’s got some more insight into the role the Chinese market may have played in that decline. New figures out this week show right around a 20 percent dip in shipments in China y-o-y for the quarter. That’s a pretty dramatic drop for a market that’s been a key factor in...

Apple's iPhone sales in China collapsed last quarter, and it's because they cost too much (AAPL)

iPhone shipments in China dropped nearly 20% on an annual basis during the 4th quarter of 2018, according to a new estimate. Huawei shipments were up 23% during the same period, according to the report.  Apple's high iPhone prices hurt it in China, according to IDC, a market research firm.  Apple missed its own revenue target during the quarter by about $7 billion, and attributed the miss to slow demand in China.  Apple's iPhone shipments during the quarter ending December 2018 were down near...

Apple updates FaceTime eavesdropping bug, rewards 14-year-old who found it

Apple has released an iPhone update to fix a software flaw that allowed people to eavesdrop on others while using FaceTime. The bug enabled interlopers to turn an iPhone into a live microphone while using Group FaceTime. Callers were able to activate another person’s microphone remotely even before the person has accepted or rejected the call. Apple turned off the group-chat feature last week, after a 14-year-old boy in Tucson, Arizona, discovered the flaw. The teenager, Grant Thompson, and his ...

Apple's new head of retail just got about $8 million in stock grants, and she could be paid even more if Apple crushes it (AAPL)

Apple has granted its new head of retail about $8 million in restricted stock, according to SEC filings.  The number of shares Deirdre O'Brien can collect could go up based on Apple's performance.  Still, it's less than the previous retail head Angela Ahrendts was paid, which was about $170 million over five years. Apple's new head of retail Deirdre O'Brien is getting paid. Apple has granted her two large chunks of Apple stock, worth about $8.2 million total at the current price.  One batch o...

The 4 most valuable companies in the world are increasingly clashing as their growing ambitions bump into one another

Apple briefly blocked Facebook and Google employees from accessing internal iOS apps last week after they were found violating developer policies. This battle is the latest showdown among four of the biggest tech companies — Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon. As these companies expand, their products and services are increasingly overlapping. For a few moments last week it might have looked like the tech industry's very own World War III was breaking out, as Apple briefly kicked iPhone user...

Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins calls for a federal privacy law, throwing a spear at internet companies who sell advertising (CSCO)

Cisco is stepping into the spotlight with a fervent call for federal privacy regulations. CEO Chuck Robbins echoed Apple CEO Tim Cook's sentiments by calling privacy a fundamental human right. Cisco says it believes it needs to push on this issue because the company itself is a Silicon Valley rarity — a large tech company that doesn't make money on ads. Robbins has actually been publicly in favor privacy regulation, even since before Europe's landmark privacy regulation GDPR rolled out last ye...
