MacStadium Announces Orchestration with Kubernetes on Apple

AAPL

MacStadium, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud solutions for Apple Mac infrastructure, today announced ‘Orka’ (Orchestration with Kubernetes on Apple), a new virtualization layer for Mac build infrastructure based on Docker and Kubernetes technology. Orka enables users to apply native Kubernetes commands for macOS virtual machines (VMs) on genuine Apple hardware. While Kubernetes and Docker are not new to full stack developers, a solution like this has not existed in the Apple ecosystem before. “The reality is that most enterprises need to develop applications for Apple platforms, but these enterprises prefer to use nimble, software-defined build environments,” said Greg McGraw, chief executive officer at MacStadium. “With Orka, MacStadium’s flagship orchestration platform, developers and DevOps teams now have access to a software-defined Mac cloud experience that treats infrastructure-as-code, similar to what they are accustomed to using everywhere else.”. With Orka, Apple OS development teams can use container technology features in a Mac cloud the same way they build on other cloud platforms like AWS, Azure or GCP. As part of its initial release, Orka will ship with a plugin for Jenkins, an open source automation server that enables developers around the world to reliably build, test and deploy their software using continuous integration and continuous delivery techniques.

Canalys: Samsung Takes a Bite Out of Apple in Europe

AAPL

Canalys: Samsung Takes a Bite Out of Apple in Europe. Apple doesn't disclose unit volumes anymore, but it did recently report a fairly modest 2% drop in Europe revenue in the second quarter. The growing services and wearables segments are helping to offset declining iPhone sales across the world, but the iPhone is still the company's most important product. Market researcher Canalys today released fresh estimates on the European smartphone market, which show Samsung shipments jumping 20% and retaining their top position in the region thanks to strong sales of the company's midrange A Series of handsets like the Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A40.

Apple to pay hackers more than $1m to find security flaws

AAPL

Apple will pay ethical hackers more than $1m if they responsibly disclose dangerous security vulnerabilities to the firm, the company announced at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas. The new “bug bounty”, up from a previous maximum of $200,000, could even out-bid what a security researcher could earn if they decided to skip disclosure altogether and sell the bug to a nation state or an “offensive security company”, according to data shared by Maor Shwartz, a vulnerability broker at the same conference. On the corporate side, the rise of bug bounties has ensured that responsibly disclosing weaknesses isn’t just something companies like Apple, Google and Microsoft expect hackers to do out of the goodness of their hearts, but can actually help those who find them pay the bills. Apple is fighting back, however, issuing select security researchers pre-jailbroken iOS devices in an effort to help responsible researchers find bugs before their less ethical colleagues, according to a Forbes report from earlier this month.

Apple loses more ground in smartphone market

AAPL

Apple lost more ground in the shrinking smartphone market last quarter, with a sales tracker saying the tech giant was pushed off the top-three seller list by a Chinese rival. Apple fell to fourth place in global smartphone sales, shipping 35.3 million iPhones in the second quarter compared to the 36.2 million units shipped by Oppo, according to a report from IHS Markit this week. South Korean consumer electronics titan Samsung remained in first place with 23% of the market, having shipped 75.1 million smartphones, China’s Huawei shipped 58.7 million smartphones to claim 18% of the market, IHS Markit calculated. “Apple continues to face challenges in terms of unit shipments—a trend that is unlikely to be fixed soon,” IHS smartphone research and analysis director Jusy Hong said in an online post. While California-based Apple has been aggressively promoting iPhones, current-generation smartphones have “super-premium” prices while models a few years old are still costly compared to bargain Android-powered handsets, the analyst reasoned. Other smartphone market trackers such as Counterpoint Research and International Data Corporation concluded that while iPhone shipments sank in the second quarter, Apple remained in third place what it came to global shipments.
