Apple is basically sold out of the iPhone SE in stores across the US – TheNextWeb – Relevant Blogs
As it turns out, making a new 4-inch smartphone was actually a brilliant move on Apple’s part. It’s new iPhone SE is sold out in many stores across the US, and shipping estimates have slipped into the end of April. As first pointed out by Apple Insider, the SE is widely unavailable in Apple stores and the earliest delivery date is April 20. That’s a solid two weeks away — if you’re lucky. Of course, carriers may have stock, but that’s only good if you want to play the subsidy game. Should you want to buy a phone outright, it’s…

How Apple could force the FBI to explain San Bernardino iPhone hack – BGR
Apple beat the FBI this week, as it avoided a legal battle against the law enforcement agency over creating a backdoor into the San Bernardino iPhone. The war on encryption isn’t over yet, as both parties aren’t necessarily happy with this temporary solution. For the FBI, accessing the iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardino shooters is crucial, but doesn’t solve its bigger problem: spying on encrypted communications or devices. Apple, on the other hand, is reportedly working on beefing up iPhone security. But for now, it has one other problem: the world knows there is a way to get peek at the data stored on an encrypted iPhone without knowing the PIN or password.
The FBI did not say whether it’ll share the vulnerability it discovered and successfully used on the San Bernardino iPhone 5c, with the help of an unnamed security company. But Apple might be able to use other legal cases that involve iPhones to force the Bureau to explain the hack...

FBI asks to delay Apple trial so it can try hacking the iPhone again – The Verge
The FBI just filed a motion to delay Tuesday's hearing in the San Bernardino iPhone case, claiming that an "outside party" may be able to help it break into the phone without Apple's help. The motion comes after weeks of escalation tension in the case with Apple, the FBI, and other stakeholders arguing the case in public before it reached courts. It's not clear who is helping the FBI or what the new method entails, but it's probably not coming from the NSA, despite speculation that the intelligence agency has the ability up its sleeve; today's filing states that the help is coming from "outside the US government."
"As the FBI continued to conduct its own research, and as a result of the worldwide publicity and attention on this case,...

Devialet wants its sound tech in everything you use – The Verge
Last summer, I spent some time with the Devialet Phantom, a ridiculously loud, bulbous mass of a wireless speaker. The Phantom, which comes in two, expensive flavors, can hit deafening volumes of over 90db. It also looks like something straight out of Portal.
While the Phantom is a product that’s actually for sale in places such as the Apple store, its real purpose is to showcase Devialet’s audio technologies. In a recent interview, Devialet CEO Quentin Sannié explained that the company’s ultimate goal is to get its technology into everything from phones, to cars, to television sets — really, anything that outputs audio.
The Phantom is a showcase for two of Devialet’s developments: a software-based technology called Speaker Active...

The worst of Apple’s iPhone slump might be over (AAPL) – Silicon Alley
When Apple last reported quarterly earnings, it adjusted its revenue guidance for 2016 down, suggesting that its incredibly profitable iPhone business had peaked.
Now, according to supplier checks performed by Wall Street analysts, it looks as if Apple has already gotten past the worst of its slump. The companies that provide parts to Apple have suggested they are producing as much as ever.
From a report by Credit Suisse:
The CS Asia Tech Team has noted that the iPhone supply chain orders are indicating things may be better than feared. In our view, this improvement could be the first positive movement since the Apple iPhone supply chain cuts began late last year ... with high retention rates, continued installed base growth, and the optionality of a smaller 4-inch iPhone, Apple remains an Outperform.
The analysts raised Credit Suisse's earnings-per-share estimates for Apple. The reversal in supply-chain sentiment is notable because suppliers gave the first signs that iPhone sales...

Galaxy S7 appears to have a serious performance issue – BGR
There's little doubt that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are going to be two of the most capable Android phones released in 2016. Samsung is always at the front of the pack when it comes to performance, but a single decision regarding the chipset may have a major impact on the international appeal of the flagship devices. DON'T MISS: iPhone 6s Plus crushes Galaxy S7 edge in side-by-side speed test As we noted earlier this week when AnTuTu published its latest benchmarks, Samsung is using two different chipsets around the globe for Galaxy S7 models: the company's own Exynos 8890 and Snapdragon's 820 processor. This isn't the first time an Android phone has used...

In Depth: Android in 2020: how much could Google’s OS change? – TechRadar
In the beginningCast your mind back to late 2008, when the first Android-powered handset saw the light of day. Obama won his first Presidential election, Apple launched its App Store (the iPhone had appeared the year before), Google announced its own Chrome browser and we got our first look at the company's new mobile OS on the T-Mobile G1.The Android of 2016 is a world away from that 2008 version, where the Android Market was in its infancy, there were no native video playback capabilities embedded and the G1 had no multi-touch support. In short, it was a phone that sat very happily on the pile of 'might make it big one day if the stars align' moonshots that companies were throwing out at that time.But Google did make a success of Android, seeing it grow to the most dominant operating system in the smartphone world - but it will need to keep innovating and improving its mobile OS to keep that lion's share.We've re-tooled this article to take a peek into the future with our new knowledge...

FEATURED — The iPhone is the only smartphone people actually care about – BGR
Almost exactly four years ago, Samsung's marketing boss sat down for an interview and made a claim that seemed almost comical at the time. There was a bit of a language barrier, but the gist of Young-Hee Lee's bold claim was this: People had been obsessed with Apple's iPhone line for long enough, and Samsung was going to shift their obsession to Galaxy phones. If only it were that easy, right? Well, as it turns out, it is that easy when you've got a massive smartphone division and tens of billions of dollars to spend on marketing. At the time of the interview, Samsung had already set in motion a major shift in its advertising strategy that had two goals...

Report: Apple won’t release a major Apple Watch update in March (AAPL) – Silicon Alley
Apple won't release a big update to the Apple Watch in March, contrary to reports, according to TechCrunch.
Matthew Panzarino, a long-time Apple watcher, cites inside sources who claim Apple has not been developing a new version of the Watch software. He says that any new model will be a smaller update, rather than a big, new version of the device.
Ben Bajarin, an independent analyst, also said that Apple's supply chain, which will be used to make the new Apple Watch, had not seen significant changes in production levels.
"With the supply chain cuts from the usual suspects of Apple component providers, the timing does seem suspect for a new product given orders would have taken place in the latter part of 2015 if a new product is shipping first half of 2016," Bajarin told TechCrunch.
However, Bajarin does note that the supply chain was not an accurate indicator of the first Apple Watch, and so the signs of an updated model could have been missed.
Apple captured a ...

Apple vs. AAPL – Daring Fireball
Neil Cybart, “The Two Apples”:
Just as Wall Street is nervous about AAPL’s changing revenue
sources, Apple’s ultimate success is built on that very ideal.
Even though Apple was the “iPod company” yesterday and the “iPhone
company” today, management’s goal is to make sure that Apple will
one day be known as something else, such as the “car company” or
the “personal transport company.” This isn’t to suggest that Apple
will change its culture and mission statement depending on where
growth can be found. Instead, management looks to enter product
categories that make it possible to advance Apple’s goal of making
technology more personal. In the beginning, such a goal was
achieved with the Mac but soon included the iPod, then iPhone and
iPad, and now Apple Watch...

Every major Apple analyst is now predicting a decline in iPhone sales (AAPL) – Silicon Alley
Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, one of the better-known analysts who covers Apple, has joined the ranks of his colleagues and competitors who are predicting a decline in iPhone sales when CEO Tim Cook reports his December quarterly earnings on January 26.
Of the seven most recent analyst reports that Business Insider has viewed, all of them now predict an upcoming slump in the number of iPhone units sold. One group, Pacific Crest, all but accused Apple of shading the truth about its sales prospects in a previous earnings call, in a note that said, "Management's confidence now looks highly likely to be misplaced, which suggests that it was either ignorant of the challenges it faced or deliberately overstating underlying trends."
Apple has never before reported a decline in iPhone sales. Although the stock has already declined 26% over the last few months, analysts have not yet booked-in an actual reported decline to their models. And the tech industry generally has ne ...
