For those who dont know: The iTunes EULA contains this sentence:

Apple has a whole gallery promoting the high-end photography and videography shot on iPhones (https://www.apple.com/iphone/world-gallery/). iPhone cameras may not pack the highest number of pixels or the latest gimmicky features, but their optics and image processing are first-rate. See also (http://nofilmschool.com/2014/05/new-ad-for-bentley-shot-on-iphone-5s).
According to Apple's website:
>Working with iPhone, Apple Watch continually checks against the definitive global time standard with the same precision found in GPS satellites.
So it seems the Watch gets its time from the iPhone.
It's down, but of course the System Status page says everything is a-okay!
They really should take down this page if they're not going to use it when it matters.
EDIT: Yes, hours later they decided to update it... Usually they wait until the downtime is over to put a notice, or never put one at all. This downtime seems to be long enough that they updated it mid-downtime.
The iPhone 6 is 6.9 mm thick. Folding it 42 times gives you a thickness of 3x10^10 m, which is more than 76 times the Earth-moon distance.
Ninja-edit fun fact: This is the first time I have ever used a superscript properly on Reddit. Usually I just make ^dumb ^^jokes ^^^like ^^^^this!
To put it in perspective, the original iPad sold just 300,000 in its first day in the US. (https://www.apple.com/pr/library/2010/04/05Apple-Sells-Over-300-000-iPads-First-Day.html)
The original iPhone sold 270,000 in its first 30 hours in the US(http://www.engadget.com/2007/07/25/apple-sold-270-000-iphones-in-the-first-30-hours/)
If this article is accurate, Apple Watch may be Apple's most successful product category launch.
It's actually both. See page 9 of this white paper: https://www.apple.com/privacy/docs/iOS_Security_Guide_Oct_2014.pdf
Full disk encryption is supported by the dedicated encryption engine in the DMA path. Other cryptographic tasks may be accelerated by the main processor.
ITT a lot of people who don't understand how security works.
The communication between phones and cell towers is encrypted. The data on the phones themselves is encrypted as well. To get at that data, you have to have a key to the data. Generally the key is device specific and is only unlocked with your passcode. In iOS 7 and earlier, Apple kept a key that could be used to decrypt that data on all iPhones. In iOS 8, Apple simply doesn't have such a key. Snowden's information was always public knowledge and is now outdated.
Saying "no" isn't very helpful without sources or reasoning - when talking about security and privacy, the real answer is almost always more complex than that, and if it is that simple, that's useful to explain too.
To start understanding the system so you can evaluate the risks, Apple has a user-oriented support document about Apple Pay security. Next, for understanding it a little more, Apple also has a public technical document about iOS security features, written at a fairly understandable level, and the part about how Apple Pay works is on page 27-32.
If you take an important phrase from that such as "Secure Enclave" and google it with "jailbroken", you get this /r/jailbreak thread which quotes Apple explaining in that technical document that Secure Enclave is designed to work even on jailbroken devices. If you google "Secure Element" and "jailbroken", you don't get much. You can guess from those search results that nobody has broken these things (that the public knows of), since that would be big news that would show up in the searches.
So you can reason that the answer is probably "no" for whether a tweak would be able to steal saved Apple Pay information. But would a malicious tweak be able to "listen" when you input your credit card information into Apple Pay? I don't have the technical background to be able to fully evaluate this, but if it's a relatively normal app and if you have a malicious keylogger or cameralogger tweak that "listens" to all typing and camera activity, that could be quite possible.
Hah, that is a great story.
For whatever reason it makes me think of:
g. .. You also agree that you will not use these products for any purposes prohibited by United States law, including, without limitation, the development, design, manufacture or production of nuclear, missiles, or chemical or biological weapons.
If enough of us submit complaints, they will fix this.
Let's all submit complaints to:
I'm putting mine under:
Bug reports: https://bugreport.apple.com/
Make sure bugs actually get submitted to the bug reporter. On this sub, I've seen people tell people to submit bugs to the Feedback link. The bug reporter actually gets to Apple's development team, and they can actually respond and follow up about bugs there.
... and I think there are APIs to interact with Siri in this way, fortunately. :-P
Edit: BTW, the braille displays use a bluetooth connection to access the data too; if Pebble Time were to implement the same BT profile as the braille displays, it might directly access the Siri text (and more!!).
Did they not read the terms and conditions?!?

Apple reserves the right to “use [customer] personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Apple’s products, services, and customer communications” across its product line. It permits itself to share this information with “its affiliates” as well (whoever they are).
Apple made an in-ear headphone with balanced armature drivers. It's not bad. very very balanced. In fact, if you check out the measurements, it's damn accurate.
The measurements are almost perfect, but there some harmonic distortion in the 2-7Khz range (spike on the 5th graph) that's over 1% which means that these are better for softer listening. If you listen to them too loud, you'll start to hear this distortion. Still... they are VERY good from a technical standpoint.

For $1,299 you can get the 13 inch Macbook Pro instead of the Macbook.
I am literally begging you right now to not be coaxed in by the pretty new "Macbook", and spend your money on the better computer instead.
The terms and conditions for iTunes include this:

I really want to know how iTunes can be used in the production of biological weapons.
I've been using wireless for about 8 years now. My current connection speed on wireless is 0.5-1Mbps slower download than my wired connection. My ping is around 30-40 on games like Path of exile and Diablo 3 and ping is 12 on speedtest.net. I very rarely have any drops in my wireless connection. I live in a house. My access point is a Mac Airport Express dual band N and my wireless adapter is TP Link TL-WDN4800
Yeah... there is a really good breakdown on this page.
Here is a good example... Streaming a movie uses about 2W (Not to include the juice used by your TV, or modem too) That means (@ 14 cents per kW/h) you could have the AppleTV playing a movie 24hrs a day, 7 days a week... at a cost of about $2.50 per year.
Or, lets say your ATV was on for a year, but never used (not a great example, but just for shits and giggles)... it would be sleeping and uses .20 W - So, a full year of the ATV sleeping, would cost about a Quarter... probably just enough to light that pulsing LED.
For what it's worth.
Early 2011 15" here. 2 GHz i7 with the Radeon 6490M discrete chip.
Was fine for just over 2 years. Then froze one day, required a restart and distorted screen. Wouldn't reach password screen, either on laptop screen or external display.
Went to Apple Store. I was about a week outside of the EU 2 year warranty. Genius mentioned this, but then stated "but we don't care - we will fix this free of charge". New logic board fitted and, touch wood, all OK for now.
My store genius/manager made the call that many think Cupertino should be making. Awful for those who didn't get such good service. I was a lucky one.
The official Apple Widget Browser hasn't been updated in forever. It still uses the pre-Lion scrollbars and kinda fits awkwardly with the newer website layout. So yes, it's safe to say Apple has pretty much forgotten they exist.
Apple has done a lot to improve working conditions for factory workers. They can't easily fix a foreign culture, however. They're also very transparent about their efforts to improve working conditions as well as their efforts to reduce their reliance on conflict minerals. As for paying their taxes, are you suggesting that Apple pay more taxes than they owe by law?
FWIW, I think removing anything containing the confederate flag from the App Store is moronic.
From Wikipedia, iMessage does but others have a mixed history of saying they're encrypted when they're not.
iOS Security p30-32 (PDF Warning)
A device 9mm thin like the new surface pro isn't gonna happen because of the keyboard.
Also, the picture of the magsafe connect you linked is incorrect. That's the old connector. New one: pic
You didn't point out that there's a lot of "belly" in the Mac, and the size of the ports isn't the limiting factor in its thinness.
I believe with the current ports, decent keyboard etc the thinnest they could go is around 12-13mm. Instead of having a round belly, it would just be flat, like the rMBP. A thin slab underneath, while still having a wedge shape towards the front.
Apple has already been putting a lot of effort into iOS security, it's just not been widely publicised. Here's their PDF that goes into detail about the hardware and software security features in iOS devices. It's all very impressive considering they don't even advertise security as a selling point. They just really want to make their shit secure.
iMessage for example uses end-to-end encryption. Apple cannot decrypt your iMessages and they are wiped from their servers 10 minutes after they're delivered. This is the way to go, because then if LE comes to them asking for data they simply don't have that data to hand over.
Seriously - look at that board layout. Generally, no one ever looks at these things but they made it work (presumably well) and it looks good.
A macbook pro as another example
I don't even own any apple products - I just appreciate the extra detail work.
Too be fair, you are comparing two year old device / technology to a new device. Also the Iphone 5 has a Battery Replacement Program that she could use/Need to improve the Battery Life. https://www.apple.com/support/iphone5-battery/

Holy shit. Does anybody have the numbers for other opening days?
Edit: iPad: 300,000 (first day) iPhone: 700,000 (weekend, 3 days)
Well it isn't to make it seem like luxury product. It is to protect their trademark; i.e. A bandaid. When you start referring to a brand name as the object, it loses the ability for it to be a specific recognizable name that sets that product apart. Apple doesn't want iPhone to become a generic name for smartphone. If you don't protect your trademark, you lose it. Trademarks are everything.
It comes down to security. When you send any iMessage, be it a wink, an LOL, or a top-secret order, it's very securely encrypted. The iMessage servers maintain the public keys for all registered devices, and send these to anybody who starts to send a message. The first time you type in a phone number, you know how it turns from green to blue? That's your phone receiving the public key for that phone number. The private key, used to decrypt the messages, however, is stored only on the receiving device. The only way a web-based session of iMessage would work is if it weren't encrypted at all, or if Apple were storing an additional private key for you, which defeats the entire purpose.
Your messages aren't actually synced between your iPhone and Mac, but are actually separately encrypted by the sending device and sent to each of your receiving devices, to be decrypted by them. If you're on a group chat with three other people and each one has two devices set up with iMessage, your phone will actually send each message six times. (For photos, the photo is encrypted once with a newly-generated key and uploaded to a randomly-generated address in the cloud, and your phone then sends the address and new key for that photo in an encrypted message to each recipient.)
EDIT: If anybody is interested in the really juicy technical details, Apple has an iOS Security white paper. Page 33 explains exactly how iMessage works. The paranoia-level security of iCloud Keychain (page 38) is also fun reading.
Short answer: No.
Long answer: A lot of misinformation in this thread. MacBook batteries are Lithium-ion. One of the key advantages of Lithium-ion has over other other technologies is that the cells require almost no maintenance or special care as long as they have the proper driving circuitry (and if if Apple isn't doing battery-management right, I'll eat my hat). If you have any other battery-related questions for Apple products, you should check out this page.
Lithium-ion cells have no memory effect, meaning that they won't lose any capacity if they are fully recharged after only a little discharge. Also, unlike many other deep-cycle rechargeable batteries, they don't need to be fully discharged and recharged periodically.
In fact, the main factor limiting the lifespan of Lithium-ion batteries is the total number of effective charge/discharge cycles (IIRC, most are rated for 600 full discharges/recharges). So keeping your MacBook plugged in all the time, and discharging the battery less frequently, will make the battery last longer!
Edit: accidentally a clause
I sent in feed back (https://www.apple.com/feedback/watch.html) about the change in feature. I never had battery life issues with 1.0, and am rather disappointed with the change. Really hard to get a valid record of heart rate if it only records the resting heart rate.
I don't think people are giving enough credit to the display here. A good high-resolution display like the new MacBook has would probably cost hundreds of dollars on its own.
When the iMac with 5K display came out, people shat all over the price then too, but conveniently ignored the fact that if you just wanted to build a PC with the same quality display, the monitor alone would cost as much as the entire iMac.
But Find My iPhone was not compromised on any of the victim's accounts. The passwords were discovered by pure social engineering—there was no breach on Apple's end.
Apple not the owners of the content. That would be an even bigger issue. Edit: sorry haven't been on today. Several others fielded but Tl; dr Apple does collect data about user but does not claim any rights to the content saved to the cloud. EULA

Don't know why they didn't mention this in the keynote, but it has a power reserve function, that limits it to only telling the time when the battery gets too low, which apparently will last for 72 hours.
Batteries are very sensitive to heat.
>Your device is designed to perform well in a wide range of temperatures, with 62° to 72° F (16° to 22° C) as the ideal comfort zone. It’s especially important to avoid exposing your device to temperatures higher than 95° F (35° C), which can permanently damage battery capacity. That is, your battery won’t power your device as long on a given charge. Charging the device in high temperatures can damage it further. Even storing a battery in a hot environment can damage it irreversibly. When using your device in a very cold environment, you may notice a decrease in battery life, but this condition is temporary. Once the battery’s temperature returns to its normal operating range, its performance will return to normal as well.
Didn't they say launching in 100 countries on June 30th? If assume the UK would be part of that list maybe?
Edit: Got the source. https://www.apple.com/pr/library/2015/06/08Introducing-Apple-Music-All-The-Ways-You-Love-Music-All-in-One-Place-.html "Apple Music will be available starting on June 30 in over 100 countries."
Edit 2: The plot thickens. Read on the same page: "Starting on June 30, music fans around the world are invited to a 3-month free membership..." This makes it sound like /on/ June 30, the option for a free trial starts globally. As in, starting on June 30, users around the world can begin their free trial. The "starting" part clarifies that you're not required to get the free trial on that day.
Or my personal favourite option: Not even Apple know when they're launching. Support don't seem to have a clue, and all the rumours pointed to last minute deals. Could be that they're not sure?
Here is Apple's own status page...
At the bottom of the page currently it says...
iTunes Store - All users are affected Customers may be unable to make purchases from the App Store, iTunes Store, iBooks Store, or Mac App Store.
iCloud Account & Sign In - All users were affected Users may have been unable to sign in.
iCloud Mail - All users were affected Users may have been unable to access iCloud mail.
I have been having trouble signing on to id.apple.com and I wondered what this issue was.
Honestly, for the extra $100 you're getting a better chip, 64 bit, better performance, Touch ID, etc. See the Compare iPhones page it is very helpful in seeing the differences.
If I were you, I'd go for the 5s if you can.
The new macbook pro's dont have ethernet ports. We have clients who just purchased them and now they have to buy adapters for it.
Edit: BUT IT HAS RETINA DISPLAY SO OMFG SO COOL
This is from Apple's website directly…
If you want to store your device long term, two key factors will affect the overall health of your battery: the environmental temperature and the percentage of charge on the battery when it’s powered down for storage. Therefore, we recommend the following:
Do not fully charge or fully discharge your device’s battery — charge it to around 50%. If you store a device when its battery is fully discharged, the battery could fall into a deep discharge state, which renders it incapable of holding a charge. Conversely, if you store it fully charged for an extended period of time, the battery may lose some capacity, leading to shorter battery life.
Power down the device to avoid additional battery use.o
Place your device in a cool, moisture-free environment that’s less than 90° F (32° C). If you plan to store your device for longer than six months, charge it to 50% every six months.
Depending on how long you store your device, it may be in a low-battery state when you remove it from long-term storage. After it’s removed from storage, it may require 20 minutes of charging with the original adapter before you can use it.
Apple does more than pretty much any other electronics company, by far, to improve the conditions of workers that make the products. You can read details in their annual supplier responsibility reports: https://www.apple.com/supplier-responsibility/
Apple have said that later this year they will release the native SDK for the watch, so probably during WWDC.

You're not the one to decide what are the important factors. Yes, electricity is their (and their contractors') largest impact on the environment. It's needed in large amounts everywhere from manufacturing to data centers to actual product usage.
Apple's Chinese factories aren't owned by Apple. They make stuff for others. But they're in their reports and the article anyways. Why do you say you've read the article if you didn't?
> with 24.8 million metric tons resulting from manufacturing, 7 million metric tons coming from product usage, and the rest divided between facilities, transportation, and recycling
In particular Apple? Bullshit. This is about the whole industry.
No one talks about it? Bullshit as well.
But this is Apple we're talking about. So no no no completely wrong. It's just a PR move. Typical circle jerk. Get off your high horse.
If OP has an iPhone, then by default the device's hard drive is encrypted. If they also have a lock, then that lock is also used to derive additional information to further encrypt files on their device.
Page 9 of iOS security docs
There are accessibility options in the phone. It has an option that you tap once for it to read you what app it is or what it says, and tapping twice is "clicking" on it to do its function.
Here's the page for the VoiceOver feature: https://www.apple.com/accessibility/ios/voiceover/
And don't forget about Siri! That definitely helps a lot when you can't see the screen. For example, you can have Siri read you your text messages, and then you can respond with your voice.
The most helpful thing to do regarding fake apps is to make sure the developers of the real packages know about the fakes (by emailing them, etc.), since the real developers can file copyright/trademark complaints with Apple.
Then just ignore the fakes and let the developer and Apple handle it.
Edit: It can be helpful to include that link to Apple's website in your email, since not all developers know they can report things like this. Also, Apple probably doesn't care if the real copyrighted/trademarked work runs on jailbroken devices - their job in this case is to take care of copyright/trademark complaints, unrelated to whatever platform the real thing runs on.
Apple's always been focused on accessibility, so it doesn't surprise me that they've expanded that focus to their retail stores.
As a deaf man, that's one of the reasons why I love Apple so much. FaceTime has been a godsend to the Deaf community.
Thanks for posting this, OP. This thread was good to read.
> copy-paste functionality
Apple wants the copy/paste experience to be consistent across apps. I can understand why the developer would be upset, but I can also understand why Apple banned the app.
> the whole maps fiasco.
Huh? I don't think they banned apps as a result of switching off of Google's Map data. In fact the old Maps app wasn't even developed by Google. Apple developed the app themselves, and licensed Google's map data (and since we're talking about anti-competitive behavior, I should mention that Google refused to let Apple use the data for turn-by-turn directions and offline maps – which is part of the reason Apple built their own maps in the first place).
Then Google built and submitted their own Maps app, which was quickly accepted in the App Store. Then Tim Cook issued a public apology for Apple Maps, and even suggested competing map apps.
One thing to consider is that the settings for iTunes Plus (256k AAC -q 127 / constrained) can be a little different from the settings used by some encoders by default on 320k AAC (some of the Quicktime ones in particular produce <em>medium</em> quality encodes and not the max 127 quality setting). This was discussed many moons ago during that whole Tidal kerfuffle. I'd be interested to see if you could repeat the same ABX with the maximum quality iTunes Plus settings. Edit: I've tried a few times and failed pretty miserably each time, but that's just me.
Except this is completely legal within EU Law to put that there.
> For such contracts, the consumer should have a right of withdrawal unless he has consented to the beginning of the performance of the contract during the withdrawal period and has acknowledged that he will consequently lose the right to withdraw from the contract. In addition to the general information requirements, the trader should inform the consumer about the functionality and the relevant interoperability of digital content.
This is part of the the EU Directive on Consumer Rights and was specifically put their for digital retailers and digital content. Apples iTunes ToS also says similar things.
> Exception to the right of cancellation: You cannot cancel your order for the supply of digital content if the delivery has started upon your request and acknowledgement that you thereby lose your cancellation right.
iTunes ToS for EU Customers.
nope, according to the new macbook's area of the apple site you get a USB-C and a headphone port. If you want the other things, you will need adapters. This includes regular f'in USB ports. So basiclly if you want to charge and plug in a USB mouse, your shit out of luck.
I think that the support is kind of Apple's company strategy. It links with them having very few models of each of their products.
They are trying to make high end electronics and sell them to average consumers. Take a look at the cheapest mac book pro. Of course it is super expensive, but it has a 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with 16gb of DDR3 RAM. That laptop is going to perform very well. People who buy that laptop will be able to basically do whatever they want with it and it will be fast. The iPhone is similar in that way. It's a high end phone.
Apple basically needs to offer some kind of support because of this. They are trying to convince people of all levels of ability that they should buy extremely high end electronic devices. If they don't offer any support, then their products become kind of tough sell.
None of that wasn't happening when Steve was around, some of it never happened.
> Getting involved in NSA spying programs
A baseless rumor. There's no evidence of this.
> slave-like labor camps
As though Apple's production processes were suddenly moved to China the day Steve died? The working conditions over there have been shit forever, it's just that you became privy to reality more recently. If anything Apple has worked harder than most to improve the situation.
> tax invasion
Did you mean Tax Evasion? There's a huge difference between lowering one's tax liability (legal) and evading taxes owed (illegal). Presumably you're referring to the double-irish arrangement. Apple isn't alone in using the double-irish scheme, they've done so since the 1980s, if the governments of Europe disliked that arrangement they'd have changed the law some time in these 35 years.
> if he was healthy and fully present he wouldn't have allowed any of this crap
Of course, if he hadn't been a fruitarian nutter maybe he'd still be here. But that's a whole other issue.
Every single one of these "issues" have been around for decades.
If they repair the glass they will update the phone so they can test all its functions they ask you to wipe the device first or at the store with iCloud which you can't do with a jailbreak.
You will have to restore and update the phone you have no choice.
The last line says to backup first the reason for this is the device will be wiped by them if you don't.
*congrats op that is awesome to hear the tech you got was a good person cuz they would know it was jb'd but they were cool about it.
> It’s called the Taptic Engine, a linear actuator inside Apple Watch that produces haptic feedback. In less technical terms, it taps you on the wrist whenever you receive an alert or notification, or press down on the display.
I would venture that yes it will give you feedback on presses, but I also suspect it could be a setting in the watch.
... while Microsoft, Samsung, LG and pretty much all other manufacturers don't impose such sanctions on their suppliers. At least they are relatively open about their issues and actively invest in improving conditions
My iPhone 5 just started having issues with my sleep/wake button. I researched it a little and found out that Apple has a Sleep/Wake Button Replacement Program. Unfortunately I found out too late, as it only covered phone within the first TWO years after being purchased. I confirmed this with an Apple Customer Service Representative (via the online chat) on March 4th, just a few days ago.
I decided to check about prices to get it replaced independently at RadioShack. Before going to RadioShack today I decided to double check the terms of the iPhone replacement program to see if there was any information about being reimbursed, possibly, for paying for the replacement. I saw that the terms of the replacement program were extended from 2 years to 3 years! This change had to have happened sometime in the past 4 days! So exciting! I went from not qualifying to qualifying practically overnight and I already have my appointment set for the in-store repair!
I just thought I'd share this news for anyone who is having an issue with their iPhone 5 sleep/wake button and who may have thought they weren't covered by this program (or who did not even know about this program). I don't see any sort of advertising that this program even exists, let alone that the coverage period has just been extended. It was sheer luck that I double checked the program and found out I was eligible. If you've already had the issue fixed, you may be eligible for compensation. I'm not 100% sure but either way, you can find more information about the program and check to see if you're eligible here: https://www.apple.com/support/iphone5-sleepwakebutton/ .
The article is wrong. The quote used in the article does not back up their statement in any way.
This official PDF explains how iOS security concept actually works. To sum it up briefly:
The PIN code is therefore needed after booting so that the initial decrypted version of the user-data key can be calculated, else there would be nothing to send to Secure Enclave.

it doesnt say that anwhere on the t&c.
nor does it say that on the store page
in short, no there is no cap other than the limitation to 2 ADH claims, each costing $80 bucks. it costs $329 to repair the iphone 6+ with NO warranty coverage for repairs other than screen repair and battery. so it's still cheaper if you have applecare + $99+$80 = $179, and it's even more worth it if you have to make 2 claims.
here's your source, but "out of warranty" does not apply to applecare +.

iTunes music files have been DRM free since early 2009.
Video and book files are not, but the music is.
According to the Apple Music press release, there's an app coming for Android. Swift support for Linux and a primetime Apple-made app for Android at least suggest this is a possibility.
At that article's currently reported value of $10-15 per cm^2 (Edit:for polished to glass-like quality) the screen of an iPhone 6 would cost at least $900, and as high as $1300.
iPhone 6 Specs say screen is 138.1mm H x 67.0mm W
To be fair, this is what the mouse looks like. No wires or nothing, pretty symmetric design.
...of course, given how symmetric the design is, how the HELL was the customer so sure she didn't have it backwards? People are idiots.
Can someone please clear it up the difference between the iphone 6 and iphone 6 plus for me besides size?
Like did it say the iphone 6 plus gets better battery life, retina display, better camera and option to go to 128 GB in storage which the iphone 6 doesn't have?
Also do you think a 5.5 inch phone is too big and impractical especially for pockets? Right now i have a 4s and not sure to upgrade to iphone 6 or iphone 6 plus...thoughts?
Edit: I looked at https://www.apple.com/iphone/compare/
Looks like the bigger phone does indeed have better battery, Optical image stabilization, 1920-by-1080-pixel resolution at 401 ppi, 5.5-inch...but still not sure if it is worth the extra size and $100 extra bucks...?
According to Apple, if you're not going to be using the iPhone for a while, charge it to 50 percent, then store it.
Also, keeping it at room temperature is one way to make sure the battery doesn't degrade too much.
I'll share one, not quite as good as a cash reward, but pretty close.
tl;dr Apple will replace pretty much any 1st gen iPod Nano, regardless of condition.
Originally they sent out refurbished 1st gens as replacements, but I guess they ran out or something. Now they send out refurbished current gen models.
Found one with a broken screen at the GW Outlet, with the cost per weight I probably paid 25 cents for it.
(edit: current replacements are refurbs, not "new")
Okay, judging from your post history you do seem to be extremely serious about privacy so I'm gonna try to do my best.
First off, wiping out all the data on the phone (either by going into Settings > General > Reset or hooking up to iTunes and entering DFU mode) should be fine. All your data, and app data will be removed from that phone. No worries there. I'm a bit unsure of what you mean with the phone number, but your phone number is linked with your sim card, so if you use the same sim card == same number.
Yes I would say that iPhone is secure. Apple doesn't sell your information to anyone (read this: https://www.apple.com/privacy/). iOS is also heavily sandboxed, so apps can't communicate with each other, and they can't get your location or your contacts or access your photos, etc. UNLESS you give them YOUR PERMISSION to do so.
Gmail shouldn't be able to track you, atleast not if you are using the built-in Mail application, as apps are sandboxed and can't access Safari to see what you have been searching or browsing.
One question I have though, is why are you using Gmail if you care about your privacy that much? Google scans your mail to see what you are interested in to give you targeted advertising.
They're actually two separate devices that are the same form factor so you can put them together like that.
Phone repair seems to be the big ticket item, you can replace an iPhone screen for $40, Apple charges quite a bit, I charge my co-workers like $20.00 plus parts, saves them a shit ton of money.
A few days ago I swapped a USB port on an android phone, took 10 minutes and cost $6.00.
In fact, I did read the article, or I would not know it was entirely about his wife shopping at wal-mart. You would like me to deconstruct this, and I have time, so let us get started. I'll begin at the beginning:
> Globalization once propelled China. Hong Kong manufacturers flocked to that country’s coastal regions in the early 1980s largely because labor costs were low and regulation lax. Later, companies had little choice but to move to China because their competitors had already located there, and soon suppliers congregated around assemblers, forming efficient industrial communities. The country became an integral link in the production plans of manufacturers, large and small.
So, how does this gentleman support this data?
> My wife, after some searching, did find one garment label made in China. It’s called “Faded Glory.”
Allow me to retort with a few facts and figures. Let's start with China's share of the global GDP:
As and up-and-comer, third place would appear to be doing quite well. So, let's move on, shall we?
> After all, Apple is not the only company to recently announce it was “onshoring.” Lenovo, China’s largest maker of PCs, in October said it would move some computer manufacturing to its North Carolina facility, and General Electric has been transferring production back to Appliance Park in Louisville.
Neither is this data, but it does bear some refutation. What jobs are being brought back from china?
Here is literally what we're getting back: https://www.apple.com/jobs/us/retail.html
Wait, there's more: https://www.apple.com/jobs/us/students.html
What would HAVE ME take away from this, I am sincerely curious.
Non amo Apple però immagino che il target di questa SIM sia chi visita paesi stranieri in cui c'è difficoltà di connessione.
Ho provato a prendere un paese in culonia tra quelli indicati come supportati, diciamo il Bangladesh, poi sono andato sul sito del mio operatore (Postemobile) e fatto il calcolo di quanto mi costerebbero 40MB di navigazione lì.
Il risultato è 5,04 cent/KB, ovvero la modica cifra di circa 2000 euri.
Only the middle and most expensive versions use sapphire glass.
The entry level one uses something called Ion-X glass.
*Watch Sport Ion-X Glass.
Watch Sapphire Crystal
>Really, what I want is the C720 with a 1080 touchscreen.
This is what we all want, and as far as I can tell, it doesn't exist. Well, in my case, I want an Intel Acer c720 with a 13 inch 1080p screen.
You can check out this thread for a discussion of the Toshiba Chromebook 2 versus the Acer C720.
Otherwise, if you're willing to double your budget, you can get an Air.
I just googled ipad for the blind and found this which may help
I am legally blind and had someone like a case worker who helped me connect to helpful resources. She set up a meeting with a guy who told me to bring all of my tech stuff (phone, computer, etc) and he taught me how to use all of the features which was awesome!! Maybe you could do a little research in your area and find someone who could meet with you and your grandfather. Good luck!
That's not how it works. Apple Pay is much more secure than a credit card. Here's how it works:
-Take a picture of the credit card, the card is stored in your passbook but no numbers are visible.
-You have to authorize payment with your own fingerprint, which then sends a random secure string to the merchants terminal that gets authorized by the credit card company. Your actual card number is never transmitted.
-If your phone gets stolen your card cannot be used because your fingerprint can't be obtained which means not only can they not pay, but the device can't even be unlocked.
-Everything can be disabled and wiped remotely anyway in the event of a theft.
EDIT: Here's a link that explains it better: https://www.apple.com/iphone-6/apple-pay/
>A charge cycle means using all of the battery’s power, but that doesn't necessarily mean a single charge. For instance, you could listen to your iPod for a few hours one day, using half its power, and then recharge it fully. If you did the same thing the next day, it would count as one charge cycle, not two, so you may take several days to complete a cycle.
While the news shared in this tweet is certainly nice to see, it also seems to further confuse the relationship (?) between Apple Music and the ("independent but complementary?") service that is iTunes Match.
Yeah grandstanding like doing everything they possibly can to make sure workers are treated well along the entire chain, including mineral mines, paying for audits and everything along the way for the sole reason of morality...... you're right, not one of those other companies does a fucking thing.
It's AES 256 encrypted
And they at least claim to use exactly the code they have on that website. They're not modifying it. This can also be experimentally verified by just testing if something produces expected output.
> There's just a different way of handling scrolling, stopping and tapping on a contact on iOS that I just can't explain, but I know so many people that say the exact same. It's like the touch isn't as precise, or the hitboxes are smaller, I have no idea.
IIRC, iOS and Android handle things like scrolling inertia and stuff like that slightly differently, so it's more a matter of what you're used to rather than one being better than the other.
>Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the Galaxy S6 charge faster?
You're not wrong, but every iPhone has a 'fast charging' from 0%-80%, and then trickle charges from there. ^
So my understanding would be that if you were to charge from empty to full the S6 would win, but it both phones were on, say, 30% and you chucked them on the charger for half an hour the iPhone would recharge more in that time.
> Can't comment on this, I've rarely had my phones have bad battery
I think he's talking about iOS's much smaller standby battery drain more than bad batteries there.
> Apple for tables, Android for phones
Nah, Apple chairs are better :)
What were they thinking?
Hey assholes, here's what a company with taste does:
Oh, and they're worth 3.5 times as much as you.
> Exception to the right of cancellation: You cannot cancel your order for the supply of digital content if the delivery has started upon your request and acknowledgement that you thereby lose your cancellation right.
That is pretty much what Steam does now (and legal).
EDIT: >By clicking "Purchase" you agree that Valve provides you immediate access to digital content as soon as you complete your purchase, without waiting the 14-day withdrawal period. Therefore, you expressly waive your right to withdraw from this purchase.
Reading this again, it seems they want you to waive your right to step back right with the purchase instead of using the start of the download as "trigger"? That could be worth being further investigated by someone with a legal background.
OSX is not very closed, it's just the Apple hardware that is closed. A lot of the components of OSX are open-source and used on other operating systems, like Linux.
You can't really say that Windows is more open than OSX at all.
First of all, you should check if your iPhone qualifies for the free replacement program. https://www.apple.com/support/iphone5-battery/other_countries.html
If it doesn't, take it to Apple or a third party service provider.
