Did Apple Just Corner the Smartphone Market in Augmented Reality?

AAPL

With its upcoming release of the iPhone 8 and premium iPhone X, and the previous release of its ARKit for developers, Apple is setting the stage for the future of AR apps. The iPhone screen, 3D sensors, and dual cameras together form the foundation for a wide array of AR capability to come. Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang issued a report suggesting that exclusive deals with suppliers and patents for Apple's recently revealed technology may prevent competitors from copying its AR capabilities. Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty released a 49-page research note to clients, indicating that the combination of 3D sensing capability of the iPhones and the ARKit released to developers in June, will spark a widespread adoption of AR on Apple's iOS operating system.

Are Android phones better than Apple's devices? New iPhones cannot run superfast wireless networks

AAPL

Apple’s newly-launched devices -- iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X -- do not have the requisite supporting apparatus that enables Android smartphones to use superfast wireless network technology being developed by internet service providers. SAN FRANCISCO: Apple's newly-launched devices -- iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X -- do not have the requisite supporting apparatus that enables Android smartphones to use superfast wireless network technology being developed by internet service providers. Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy Note 8, LG V30 and HTC U11 are some of the Android devices that boast the ability to reach a theoretical peak speed of 1 gigabit per second -- the highest speed offered by internet service providers fast enough to download a two-hour movie in 15 seconds. However, Apple’s new iPhones would be able to tap into LTE Advanced networks which have a theoretical peak speed of 500 megabits per second.

Best alternatives to MacBooks for music making

AAPL

Now in its fourth generation, the Microsoft Surface Pro has been taking the fight to the MacBook since 2013, and the latest version is hugely compelling for music makers. Power comes from an Intel Core i5-6300U and 8GB of RAM and provides enough grunt to run most resource intensive music production software on the Windows Pro OS. A good amount of power is provided by a Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM so you’re music making applications should run without issue and, unlike the iPad Pro here, the Windows operating system means you aren’t locked into one ecosystem, offering you flexibility in choosing what those applications are. The Intel Core i7 combines with 8GB of RAM to make it powerful enough to run complete DAWs, one USB and two USB-C ports make this ideal for connecting sound cards or MIDI equipment (you can always use a USB-C to USB 3.0 converter if you want more of the latter) and the battery life of nearly eight hours offers you the freedom to make music on the move without need for a power point.

How Apple Will Stop Companies Abusing Facial Recognition on New iPhone X

AAPL

Apple’s strong record on privacy means it’s likely to deploy the facial recognition tool responsibly, but that doesn’t account for third-party companies that plan to integrate Face ID into their apps. Face ID, in a nutshell, is about Apple replacing fingerprints with facial images as a security feature on the iPhone X. For consumers, this means they’ll be able to unlock their phone just by looking at it, and also to use their face as a means to authorize in-app transactions with banks and retailers. A source familiar with Face ID, who was not authorized to speak publicly, confirmed the company will indeed “sandbox” the new iPhone’s facial recognition capacity in a way that prevents app makers from harvesting biometric data. In response to this phenomenon, the state of Illinois passed a law that requires companies to obtain permission from consumers before collecting biometric data, including facial scans.
