  1. Apple is shutting down Dark Sky's iOS app and website in 2022 Apple acquired the hyperlocal weather app, Dark Sky, in 2020 and, at that time, it was highly likely that it would shut down Dark Sky's apps and website in the same year. However, the company also said that there would be "no changes to Dark Sky for iOS" at that time. In 2021, we see that there is a small update to the Dark Sky blog that appears to be adding a new shuttering date for the Dark Sky iOS App, API, and website. Adam Grossman, the co-founder of the Dark Sky weather app, wrote:
  2. Early tests show Apple’s Private Relay feature does not live up to speed promises Apple introduced a new iOS 15 feature at WWDC called Private Relay. The feature is designed to frustrate companies tracking you on the internet by routing your data via two servers, one belonging to Apple and the other to a 3rd party. When Apple introduced the service they promised it would not reduce your connection speed or “compromise your performance“, something which was frankly hard to believe. Now early tests have shown that promise was indeed too good to be true. Googl
  3.

  4. Apple adds welcome privacy features to Mail, Safari Say goodbye to IP tracking Apple has always stressed user privacy as part of its core mission.

  7. Apple planning to refresh iPad Pro and iPad mini with new design and features While small businesses are struggling to survive, big tech companies seem to be thriving in the pandemic.

  11. More people are buying wearables than ever before—and Apple is in the lead But the fastest-growing categories are ones Apple hasn't even touched yet. The wearables category of consumer devices—which includes smartwatches, fitness trackers, and augmented reality glasses—shipped more than 100 million units in the first quarter for the first time, according to research firm IDC. Q2 2021 saw a 34.4 percent increase in sales over the same quarter in 2020. To be clear: wearables have sold that many (and more) units in a quarter before, but never in the first qu

  13. iPad 2 Now Considered Obsolete Worldwide The 2nd generation iPad, introduced by Steve Jobs in March of 2011, has officially been marked as an obsolete product worldwide. Released less than a year after the launch of the original ‌‌iPad‌‌, the second-generation ‌‌iPad‌‌ marked a breakthrough for the product line and set the groundwork for years to come.

  14. Apple expanding ‘Air Quality’ Weather app feature to more countries with iOS 14.7 One of the new features introduced with iOS 14 last year was the ability to see Air Quality in the Weather app, but this is restricted to only a few regions. However, with the first beta of iOS 14.7, the company is finally expanding this feature to more countries. As reported by multiple users on Reddit and Twitter, iOS 14.7 beta 1 brings the Air Quality feature in the iPhone Weather app to more regions. This includes cities in the Netherlands, France, Italy, and Spain. Other comments also
  15. None of Apple's AirPods or HomePods support lossless audio Yesterday Apple Music announced that it will enable lossless audio streaming for all of its subscribers at no extra cost starting in June. But as it turns out, Apple doesn’t actually sell headphones or speakers that can play that lossless audio. First off, Apple’s wireless headphones only support the lossy AAC codec (which is also used by Apple Music), so the AirPods and AirPods Pro are out. The AirPods Max do have the option of plugging in with a cable using a 3.5mm adapter, but that doesn’t work either.
  16. In July 2018, when Guizhou-Cloud Big Data (GCBD) agreed to a deal with state-owned telco China Telecom to move users' iCloud data belonging to Apple's China-based users to the latter's servers, the shift raised concerns that it could make user data vulnerable to state surveillance. Now, according to a deep-dive report from The New York Times, Apple's privacy and security concessions have "made it nearly impossible for the company to stop the Chinese government from gaining access to the emails, photos, documents, contacts and locations of millions of Chinese residents."
  17. iPad Pro with Mini LED could be delayed up to July For a company like Apple, delays in product shipments aren’t just embarrassing, they’re also costly for everyone involved in the production chain. Fortunately, those instances are rare and happen only in the most extreme conditions. Unfortunately, those conditions might be at play again with the latest-gen iPad Pros who might not be shipping until two months because of the very feature that defines this biggest and newest Apple tablet. There were already worries that Apple would postpone its April event and
  18. Apple says that more than 215,000 iOS apps were blocked by its App Store's App Review team for privacy violations in 2020, while another 150,00 were rejected because they were spamming or misleading iOS users. The company also blocked 48,000 applications from being published on the App Store due to using undocumented or having hidden features. Ninety-five thousand additional apps were also removed from the App Store for using bait-and-switch tactics where new features and capabilities were added to fundamentally change their functionality after being approved.
  19. Apple has developed a way to deliver true 3D content on Device Displays without requiring the use of 3D Glasses The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially granted Apple a patent that relates to delivering 3D content like movies and augmented reality to devices like the iPhone, iPad and Macs without requiring 3D glasses that is used to watch a 3D movie in a theater. This could be a killer app if Apple is able to translate their patent into a real product before their competitors do. Apple notes in their granted patent background that image and video c

  22. Apple AirTag Was Hacked and Successfully Reprogrammed at Will A researcher managed to break in the Apple AirTag firmware and change the code. In one example, the researcher shows a notification generated by the modified AirTag, displaying a URL under his control. There’s a possibility for more malicious potential, but Apple should step in to fix the issue before it gets out of hand. A German researcher has finally managed to break into the Apple AirTag microcontroller and then proceeded to reflash it with modified firmware. What this means i

  24. Apple may switch to its own 5G iPhone modems by 2023 Qualcomm will remain its 5G chip supplier until then, said analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Engadget Apple's purchase of Intel's 5G smartphone modem business in 2019 may start to pay dividends by 2023, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a report from MacRumors. Apple's first iPhones using its own custom-designed 5G chips will appear in 2023 "at the earliest," he wrote. If that proves accurate, Apple will rely on Qualcomm to supply its modems for at least a couple more generations of iPhones. "We predi
