About This Club

A club all about the Apple corporation, it's products, users and the operating systems we have come to use.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. The simple fact that Apple has not enabled notifications on a progressive web app as they do their own native apps is the proof the US Government will use to start to regulate the App Store as anti-competitive.
  3. Does anyone else feel like they lost control of the display brightness on their new iPhone Xr? Mine seems to have a mind of its own.
  4. Press briefly on Volume Up button then release. Press briefly on Volume Down button then release. Rress and hold side(power) button until you see Apple logo. Hard reset is useful for nearly 60% iPhone issues. If the above methods cannot solve your iPhone issue, try to completely reset your iPhone.
  5. Qualcomm wins estimated $3B/year from Apple The treaty of Vers-iPhone... Apple announced a legal truce Tuesday with Qualcomm. The patent lawsuit courtroom drama is over. Then it shockingly defined the relationship, announcing they're biz partners. Again. Qualcomm shares hulked out, surging 23% on news they'll supply iPhones once again. Designed in California. Made in China. Litigated everywhere... The relationship between Apple and Qualcomm is swinging back to love after previous love/hate chapters: 2007 - 2016: Qualcomm provided Apple bits of hardware that helped iPhones destroy BlackBerry, Motorola, Nokia, and a million other now-obsolete gadgets. 2016 - 2019: Apple ditched Qualcomm for Intel. Qualcomm went on a suing rampage, claiming Apple whispered its secrets into Intel's ear and profited off its patented tech. Yesterday: Apple settled — It's paying Qualcomm an undisclosed amount for past misdeeds. And it's switching back to Q for iPhone modems. Lawyers aren't thrilled. The next six years (with option to extend for two more): Based on our rough calculations, that'll add $3B-$5B annually in sales for Qualcomm (that's a big, big deal). THE TAKEAWAY Qualcomm's leverage = 5G... The San Diego-based chip-maker is one of just a few making chips needed for the new 5G network. Intel is reportedly behind (you can't round up from 4.5G), and China's Huawei was labeled a national security threat. Apple needs Qualcomm. PS: Right after the deal, Intel announced it's done with 5G. That's one way to rebound from getting broken up with by Apple.
  6. And I STILL cannot get a stylus for my iPhone. I give up. Amazing how it didn't actually come to fruition for decades after.
  7. Apple (+0.65%) canceled its AirPower charger, saying it "will not achieve our high standards."
  8. * 24. Februar 1955 in San Francisco, Kalifornien[1]; † 5. Oktober 2011 in Palo Alto, Kalifornien ..... My first reminders to the genius Steve Jobs, in the year 2011...

    Apple (+0.87%) launched a new generation of AirPods with optional wireless charging, longer talk time, and hands-free Siri access.

  11. This is what I've found: Wi-Fi will provide you with the fastest connection, and a more reliable one than Bluetooth. That being said, it will be the biggest battery suck of the three available options, especially when you're tethering more than one device. Bluetooth tethering You'd only want to use Bluetooth tethering when you want to conserve battery on the device with the connection (iPhone or cellular iPad). It's fairly slow, and you'll only be able to connect one device at a time. All that and, unless you have an older iPhone or iPad, Bluetooth tethering is fairly superfluous. If you're in a pinch, though, it'll do.
  12. Well... as soon as I made my post.... my bluetooth internet stopped.... not sure if it was bluetooth's fault or the cell network itself.... So I just switched back to wifi. These need to work smoother. 😉
  13. So I'm using my Personal Hotspot from my iPhone to get internet connectivity on my iMac and MacBook Air. I can do so either through Wifi or Bluetooth. My wifi tends to not want to connect "automatically" without turning the on/off switch a couple times on the Personal Hotspot (wifi) so I just connected via Bluetooth hoping I can bypass all this connection lag. Next question though is .... Is Bluetooth slower than Wifi? or vice-versa? Just curious if anyone on here knew for sure or could explain it. Thx in advance.
  14. the two are issuing a joint credit card that pairs with your iPhone to make managing money easier. The specs: The co-branded card will test with employees before officially rolling out to the rest of us this spring, per the WSJ. The allure: Cardholders will get extra features inside the Apple Wallet app—setting spending goals, managing balances, and tracking rewards. And the reason: Is youuuuu Times are changing... Faced with shrinking iPhone demand, Apple’s boosting its fee-generating services unit (with a $50 billion revenue target by 2020). It’ll snag a bigger share of fees from its own card than it can from card purchases made through Apple Pay right now. And Goldman wants to use its first credit card to appeal to the everyman (and offset a slump in securities trading). It’s got high hopes new Apple/Goldman customers might also become customers at its online consumer bank, Marcus.
