Apple pauses the development of its augmented reality glasses

Published

on

Apple believes immensely in augmented reality. The technology is already well integrated in its iPhone, and the Cupertino company was thought by many to have worked on augmented reality glasses for some time. But now, the project is paused.

Rumors have been around for some time that Apple is working on augmented reality glasses. These glasses were originally expected to be released in 2020. According to the rumors, at least. Today, it is possible that the project will not even come out at all.

Apple pauses its augmented reality glasses project

The Cupertino company has temporarily halted its work on these glasses. The team in charge of the project would have been dissolved last May and its members reassigned to other Apple products. No one knows why the development was stopped, and even less if it is temporary or definitive.

For a reason still unknown

It is possible that the Apple brand has had difficulty creating a new product and positioning it on the market. After all, it would not be the first company to try it. Google had tried something very similar with its Google Glass. It was an impressive project, but a total failure at the commercial level, which led Google to cancel its projects.

Perhaps Apple has feared the same setbacks. Or maybe the Cupertino company simply needs technologies that are not yet sufficiently developed. One thing is certain in any case: augmented reality glasses according to Apple will not happen right away.

A collapsible iPhone and iPad by 2021?

Published

on

After launches of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, foldable smartphones are expected to multiply in 2020. And Apple could decide to embark down this round, without rushing as usual. Will we have a collapsible iPhone and iPad by 2021?

Most smartphone and tablet manufacturers are currently working on devices with foldable displays. Samsung’s Galaxy Fold and Huawei’s Mate X are still in demand, and the market is undoubtedly preparing to welcome these new products. In a note from UBS to its investors, analysts talk about the future of the iPhone and iPad, including the possibility of a collapsible iPad in 2020 and a collapsible iPhone in 2021. And if we believe these market experts, Apple customers would be extremely interested in such devices” some would not even hesitate to shell an extra $600 to benefit from this feature alone.

A foldable iPad and iPhone before 2021?

Although the Cupertino company remained very discreet during the design phases of these products, it is entirely logical to think that Apple is working on a device with a foldable screen. According to UBS analysts, the Apple brand will initially be trying a collapsible version of the iPad for 2020, before tackling the iPhone in 2021.

This is the prediction of several UBS analysts

We can trust Apple to consider the demand of the market before launching. The results of the Galaxy Fold and Mate X will be scrutinized. The Cupertino company will also seek to find real practical use cases for such a device – Apple is not known to offer gadget functions as soon as they are available.

Apple slams the use of VOIP in the background in iOS 13

Published

on

Apple remains very concerned about the protection of the personal data of its users. This involves explicit measures and others which are a little more technical, such as the one that interests us today concerning the use of VOIP in the background.

Via a small modification in iOS 13, Apple has prevented VoIP applications from accessing certain data in the background. A decision was taken to further protect the personal data stored on the devices of the brand that should interest some big names in the tech. This initiative has a direct and fairly strong impact on data collected by apps like Messenger or WhatsApp. Indeed, to be able to ring during a VoIP call when the application is not open on the phone, it uses the process of iOS PushKit. It is the latter that detects calls via the Internet. Its use was previously hijacked by developers to collect some data.

Apple seriously limits the use of PushKit in iOS 13

For example, WhatsApp uses PushKit for end-to-end encryption throughout the application. Snapchat and WeChat use it to collect data that goes beyond the call framework. These are the kinds of actions that Apple wanted to do away with by limiting the use of PushKit. With iOS 13, the Cupertino company now prevents the use of this process for purposes other than the triggering of voice calls.

Protecting personal data, and improving performance

Developers will have to rewrite some of their code to comply with new restrictions Apple. They have until April 2020, which should be more than enough time especially as some have already set to work. In addition to the issue of personal data, this new rule will result in the disappearance of some processes in the background and thus improve the overall performance of devices, including autonomy.

Face ID could happen soon in Apple Macs

Published

on

Face ID is a technology that was introduced by Apple some time ago. The system is still imperfect, of course, but it could soon arrive on devices other than just smartphones and tablets.

Face ID was launched at the same time as the iPhone X. More recently, the technology has been integrated into the iPad Pro. The question that arises today is when will it be proposed in the Mac. It would be a logical and natural evolution after all. And the good news is that it seems that the Cupertino company is thinking very seriously about the issue. The Apple brand publishes patents very regularly and today, in a document recently discovered, we learned that Apple has already reflected on the integration of Face ID in a computer.

Apple patents a system with Face ID for Macs

The patent in question, discovered just recently, describes how Face ID could be implemented in Macs. Of course, it would not necessarily be the same Face ID that we know on the iPhone or iPad. It could even be a more advanced version, especially because it would provide a smart standby mode. According to the description provided, it would be a question of several iterations of the sleep mode, based on timers. After a certain amount of inactivity by the user, the computer could automatically go into sleep mode. And we imagine that Apple would think of setting up safeguards to prevent the watch from going off when you’re just watching a movie or listening to music, for example.

Soon a smart sleep mode?

This patent moreover describes precisely the task allocated to a camera on the Mac. This one would be responsible for following the face of the user. Unfortunately, this is only a patent, and there is no guarantee that such a system will ever be implemented in Macs.
