    Apple is reportedly considering producing its Apple Watch and MacBook in Vietnam for the first time, in a move that would lessen the company's dependence on China amid rising international tensions. Apple's key suppliers for the watches and laptops have started test production of Apple Watch in northern Vietnam, Nikkei Asia reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter. It follows weeks of escalated rhetoric from Beijing following Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit this month to Taiwan, the self-governed island that China claims as its territory.  Apple, the biggest US company, has long been dependent on Chinese factories, but according to the new report, its Chinese supplier Luxshare Precision Industry and Taiwan-based Foxconn are exploring the new production lines in Vietnam. In 2016, Apple struck a $275billion deal with Chinese authorities - which would allow the tech giant to grow most of its operations in the county while also doing 'its part to develop China's economy and technological prowess through investments, business deals and worker training.'   Apple CEO Tim Cook is seen in a visit to an overseas supplier. The company is...
    In this article AAPLApple CEO Tim Cook poses in front of a new MacBook Airs running M2 chips display during Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, June 6, 2022.Peter Dasilva | ReutersApple is in talks to produce Apple Watches, MacBooks and HomePods in Vietnam for the first time, Nikkei Asia said Wednesday. It again shows how Apple is trying to expand its manufacturing outside of China, as it battles supply chain disruptions related to Covid lockdowns and increased U.S.-China trade tensions.= Apple has asked suppliers to set up a MacBook test production line, and suppliers have started testing Apple Watch production, according to the report. The company is reportedly still in talks to build HomePod speakers in the country. Mac sales were short of consensus expectations in Apple's fiscal third quarter, and sales fell over 10% on a year-over-year basis. Apple iPad revenue beat expectations but was down 2% year-over-year. CEO Tim Cook said this was due to supply constraints and the strong dollar. Apple already makes some AirPods in Vietnam and reportedly began to move some...
    In this article AAPLApple launches the iPhone 13 in the UKMing Yeung | Getty ImagesApple, Google, Amazon, Samsung and other firms are teeing up for a busy fall filled with lots of new gadget launches. It's like clockwork. Big tech companies launch the latest products, like phones, watches, or even robots and flying security drones, beginning in August and up through November, to gear up for the holiday shopping rush. Samsung kicks it off next week, on August 10, when it will announce new folding phones, giving it a chance to attract consumers before Apple holds its iPhone event in September. The new products at Apple's fall events have a direct impact on the company's balance sheet. The holiday quarter is typically Apple's biggest. It reported record revenue last year for the three months ended Dec. 25, for example. Meanwhile, Google has promised to launch its next phone with a brand new chip, and its first Apple Watch competitor, this fall. And don't forget Amazon: It typically announces new Echos, Fire TV products and sometimes tosses in a few surprises,...
    In this article AAPL GRMN Apple Watch Series 7Todd Haselton | CNBCApple is reportedly planning to debut a high-end Apple Watch with a larger screen and a new design, according to a Bloomberg report. Apple increased the screen size with the Series 7 watches last year, which offer an edge-to-edge screen that removes much of the border on earlier models. But Bloomberg said the new high-end model will feature the first big design change since 2018 with a screen that's 7% larger than the Series 7. It will also have a rugged design, longer battery life and a body-temperature sensor, the report said. It may be a sign Apple is targeting Garmin's Fenix 7 series watches, which have big screens, long battery life and rugged designs. Those watches are popular among hikers and runners who need longer battery life than the Apple Watch offers. Apple Watch sales are included in the company's "Other Products" segment, which reported $8.81 billion in revenue last quarter, up 12.3% year-over-year. The changes could help Apple cater to an audience that has otherwise not purchased an...

    Police are searching for a group of alleged robbers who ripped off numerous iPhones and Apple watches from a Long Island T-Mobil store. The incident took place around 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 4 at the store located at 348 West Sunrise Highway in Valley Stream. According to Nassau County Police Robbery Squad detectives, four individuals including one Black man three Black women entered the store and inquired if the store sold Apple watches.   The man stood by the door, as the three women approached the iPhone display. The woman began ripping the iPhones from the counter while one verbally threatened the employees, saying she would stab them if they attempted to intervene.  The woman also then removed Apple watches from their display before fleeing east on Sunrise Highway with the proceeds. The three employees and one customer present during the robbery were uninjured. The investigation is ongoing. Detectives request anyone with information regarding the above incident to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.   All callers will remain anonymous.
    Apple may have only announced its latest iPhones and Apple Watches last month, but next year's versions could have a feature that detects a car accident and dials 911 automatically. The 'crash detection' feature could be unveiled as soon as next year, according to documents seen by The Wall Street Journal, which first reported on the news. The smart devices would have the ability to detect the crashes using the accelerometer chip, which could see any changes or sharp increases in gravity or a force of impact. Apple has reportedly been testing the feature over the past year, The Journal added.

    Apple Watches, Fitbits and other 'smart' accessories can be used to spot if someone has a viral infection days before they are infectious, a study suggests. The popular gadgets all have the ability to monitor heart rate, temperature, electrical pulses on the skin and physical activity. Scientists from Duke University in North Carolina say they have developed a way to use this data to diagnose someone with a cold or flu. For their study, 63 people were given a fitness device known as an E4 band and then deliberately infected with a mild flu or common cold.  The researchers were able to give the correct diagnosis up to 80 per cent of the time at least 12 hours before a person showed visible signs of illness. Some of the patients didn't start to fall sick until days after the gadget highlighted them as potentially being ill.  During the early stages of a viral infection, people's heart rate tends to speed up and their body gets warmer.  The algorithm also checks how much sleep or physical activity a person is doing,...
    Counterpoint Research, the well-known consultancy in the world of technology, has just published the data regarding the performance of the smartwatch market in the second quarter of the year. According to the consultancy, shipments of smartwatches have grown 27% compared to the previous year with Apple at the helm and Samsung taking a run. Apple has shipped 28% of the watches during the second quarter of 2021, a figure well above that of its main rivals, which are Huawei (9.3%) and Samsung (7.6%). Apple, therefore, continues to lead in this product segment, although the price range that is growing the most is not exactly the highest. 100 euro watches pull the cart On the one hand, data from Counterpoint Research show that Huawei, which is still in second position, has dropped shipments from 13.1% to 9.3%, something that could be due to its loss of market share of smartphones. . Samsung, for its part, has gone from 6.8% to 7.6%, thus surpassing the Chinese imoo and staying in third position. A new player also appears on the graph,...

    Later versions of the Apple Watch could be focused more on health than prior models, including reading a person's body temperature and blood sugar levels, a new report says. According to Bloomberg, the new features, which likely will not be a part of the 2021 upgrade, but rather the 2022 model, have been in the works for some time. It's unclear if they will be included in a new version of the watch that Apple is reportedly marketing to extreme sports athletes or if it would be a part of the annual upgrade.  Blood glucose levels have traditionally been taken by pricking a fingertip with a device, then applying it to a glucose meter. However, in recent years scientists have worked on creating new methods to read blood sugar levels. In 2018, a stick patch was created to better read blood sugar, while two years later, a wearable heart monitor using artificial intelligence was created to help those with Type 1 diabetes.       New versions of the Apple Watch could be focused more on health than prior models, including...

    Smart watches and other wearable devices that continuously measure users' heart rates, skin temperature and other physiological markers can help spot coronavirus infections days before an individual is diagnosed. Devices like the Apple Watch, Garmin and Fitbit watches can predict whether an individual is positive for COVID-19 even before they are symptomatic or the virus is detectable by tests, according to studies from leading medical and academic institutions, including Mount Sinai Health System in New York and Stanford University in California. Experts say wearable technology could play a vital role in stemming the pandemic and other communicable diseases.Subtle heart beat changesResearchers at Mount Sinai found that the Apple Watch can detect subtle changes in an individual's heartbeat, which can signal that an individual has the coronavirus, up to seven days before they feel sick or infection is detected through testing.  "Our goal was to use tools to identify infections at time of infection or before people knew they were sick," said Rob Hirten, assistant professor of medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City...
    In the future Apple MacBooks could have the ability to wirelessly charge iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches when they are placed on the computer, a patent reveals. A pair of patents granted to Apple by the US Patent and Trademark Office allow for 2-way charging or 'reverse charging', according to a report by Patently Apple. If the patent is ever implemented a user would be able to charge an iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch by placing them on the lid, palm rest or trackpad of a MacBook.  Apple has also included drawings within their patents that appear to show iPads and iPhones that can wirelessly charge other devices.  A pair of patents granted to Apple by the US Patent and Trademark Office allow for 2-way charging or 'reverse charging', according to a report by Patently Apple The idea behind the patents is to allow someone to add a quick top up charge to their iPhone while working on their laptop if they forgot their charging cable.  Reverse wireless charging is already available on a number of Android devices, although...

    I’ve long been conscious about health and fitness, but in the midst of a global health crisis, staying healthy has become a bit of an obsession. In many ways, that’s a good thing, but thinking about your health can be a double-edged sword if it winds up causing anxiety which, ironically, can negatively impact your health.

    YouTube Music launched yesterday on the Apple Watch, arriving before an official Wear OS version and only further illustrating Google’s ongoing issues with its competing wearable platform. The app — available to YouTube Music Premium and YouTube Premium subscribers — mirrors all the same features it launched with on iOS, but now in compact watchOS form. Users can stream, control playback, and even cast music from their wrist, complete with a nice complication for Apple Watch watchfaces. Landing on the Apple Watch first shows Google’s commitment to growing YouTube Music’s audience. Apple still controls half the smartwatch market, so showing up is ultimately in Google’s favor. But skipping Wear OS at launch underlines how hobbled Google’s platform has been from the start. A small install base and slow development of processors from partner Qualcomm has led to Wear OS lagging behind competitors Apple and Samsung for years. The release of Qualcomm’s newer chips, the Snapdragon Wear 4100 and 4100 Plus, aims to solve the speed issues that hurt past Wear OS devices. Paired with a Wear OS update this...
    Apple has filed suit against a Canadian company it hired to recycle its devices, claiming it instead stole and resold more than 100,000 iPads, iPhones and Apple Watches. The tech giant is taking legal action against Ontario-based Geep Canada, which it paid to dismantle and recycle over 570,000 Apple devices between 2015 and 2017. Investigators found that nearly 20 percent of those devices were never gutted for parts, but were stored in an area not covered by security cameras and sold off. Looking up the gadgets' serial numbers, Apple determined many were still connected to Apple servers via mobile networks. That tally doesn't count Apple devices without a cellular radio, so the total number of devices could be even higher. The company is seeking at least $22.7 million from Geep, in addition to any profits made from reselling the devices.  Scroll down for video  In court filings, Apple claims that, rather than strip them for parts, Geep Canada resold more than 100,000 iPads, iPhones and Apple Watches between 2015 and 2017.  The tech giant is seeking $22.7 million, plus...
    Apple is seeking $31 million CAD ($22.7 million US) from its former partner. GEEP hasn’t denied the theft, but claims that three employees stoles the devices to benefit themselves, not the company. Apple countered that the employees were in fact GEEP’s senior executives. Apple does market refurbished devices, but it won’t attempt to sell or allow to be sold any that don’t meet its safety or quality standards. “Products sent for recycling are no longer adequate to sell to consumers… and could cause serious safety issues,” the company told The Verge . Nevertheless, right-to-repair groups have criticized Apple for its policies toward third-party repair shops and devices that are hard to fix. The company is moving some recycling in-house with machines called Dave and Daisy that can strip parts from 200 phones per hour to recover difficult-to-recycle components that might not otherwise be recycled. However, many critics believe that Apple and other electronics manufacturers should be focusing on re-use, not recycling, if we want to reduce the 53 million tonnes of e-waste produced in 2019 alone.
    Apple is suing former recycling partner GEEP Canada — now a part of Quantum Lifecycle Partners — for allegedly stealing and reselling at least 103,845 iPhones, iPads and Watches that it was hired to disassemble. “At least 11,766 pounds of Apple devices left GEEP’s premises without being destroyed – a fact that GEEP itself confirmed,” reads a portion of Apple’s complaint, as reported by The Logic (via AppleInsider). Apple sent the recycling firm over 500,000 iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches between January 2015 and December 2017, according to The Logic’s report. When Apple did an audit, it discovered 18 percent of those devices were still accessing the internet through cellular networks. That 18 percent doesn’t count Apple devices without a cellular radio, so it’s possible an even higher percentage of the gadgets were resold. Apple seeks to obtain at least $31 million Canadian dollars (roughly $22.7 million USD) from its former partner. The recycling firm denies all wrongdoing, but it doesn’t deny there was a theft — it has reportedly filed a third-party suit claiming three employees stole the...
    We’ve asked Apple for comment on the issue, although watchOS 7.0.1 doesn’t appear to have addressed the glitches. Newer watches (including this author’s Series 5) don’t appear to be affected. It’s also unclear if the problems affect Series 3 watches bought directly from Apple with watchOS 7 already installed. There’s a good chance this will be patched in an upcoming release. Even so, it’s not a great experience for owners of a device that’s still considered current.
    SAN RAMON, Calif. (AP) — Apple introduced a cheaper version of its smartwatch, its latest attempt to broaden the appeal of its trend-setting products while many consumers are forced to scrimp during the coronavirus pandemic. The scaled-down Apple Watch follows on the heels of a budget iPhone the company released five months ago as the economy cratered and unemployment rates rose above the levels reached during the Great Recession more than a decade ago. Apple also took the wraps off a new high-end watch model, a next-generation iPad and a couple of new subscription services during a virtual event held Tuesday. The company normally also rolls out its new iPhones at this time of year, but production problems caused by the pandemic have delayed their release until at least October. CEO Tim Cook didn’t mention iPhones during Tuesday’s one-hour presentation recorded at the company’s massive, but now mostly empty, headquarters in Cupertino, California.

The device can also notify users if they are at a higher altitude, to remind them that their blood oxygen levels may be different than normal. But beware the fine print:...

    If you were thinking of adding a new Apple Watch (or any other LTE-ready smartwatch with a dedicated phone number) to your Verizon account, you’ll probably like to hear that the carrier just cut the monthly cost of doing that by half. Normally $20, it now costs $10 per month for all plan types. This is welcome news considering Apple debuted two new Apple Watch models today: the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE, both of which have an LTE option. The most affordable Series 6 with LTE costs $499 ($399 without LTE), but the real bargain is the Apple Watch SE with LTE, which costs $329 (just $50 more than its price without LTE). Both models are available for preorder now and will be available this Friday. If you’d like to buy Apple Watches for your whole family, this news will be even better. Apple showed off the Family Setup feature that lets you set up and manage multiple Apple Watches with just a single iPhone. Before, you needed an iPhone paired to each smartwatch....
    By Michael Liedtke | Associated Press SAN RAMON — Apple introduced a cheaper version of its smartwatch, its latest attempt to broaden the appeal of its trend-setting products while many consumers are forced to scrimp during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Apple Watch Series 6Source: Apple In the five years since the Apple Watch first went on sale, it's always been an iPhone accessory. But on Tuesday, at an event highlighting several new products, Apple took a big step toward cutting the tether. Until now, every Apple Watch needed to be paired with an iPhone. Older versions of the watch work only when an iPhone is connected at close range via Bluetooth. Some newer versions with wireless connectivity can stray farther, but still need to be paired up with a single iPhone. But now, some Apple Watches will get a feature called Family Setup, meant for young kids or older adults who don't have an iPhone but want an easy way to make calls, text, and share GPS location with family members. It requires an administrator in the household with an iPhone, but once it's set up, the watch will get its own phone number, and be able to send and receive texts and calls with no iPhone connected. It's the first time the device will fulfill the Dick Tracy vision of...
    Undeterred by the absolute maelstrom of apocalyptic disasters raging across the world, Apple held its annual September product event today. It was a pre-recorded virtual extravaganza, available to be streamed by anyone looking for something shiny to break up their doomscrolling. Indeed, there were some lovely new gadgets shown off. But also, and more importantly, plenty of new options for Apple subscription services.New Apple WatchesPhotograph: AppleTwo new Apple Watch models debuted on Tuesday. (The announcement of new Watch hardware was a given, considering Apple titled the event, “Time Flies.”) Watch Series 6 is the premium model, priced at $399, which features a new sensor that can take a reading of blood oxygen levels in 15 seconds. There’s also a lower-priced model called Watch CE that sells for $279, minus the new blood oxygen sensor. Both are available on Friday. Watch Series 3 is still on sale for the lower price of $199. Other new features include a way to sync with your kids’ Apple Watches—even if they don’t have their own phone—so you can track their location and moderate the...
