And I’ve actually for about a year now predicted the name of this 10th Anniversary iPhone to be:
However, I thought Apple would go ahead and update the regular iPhone lineup according to previous year’s practice and launch the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s plus today in San Fransisco. But word has it that Apple will call the not-top model iPhone line the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus.
That is clearly a break for previous Apple nomenclature when it comes to the iPhone.
We will be back later on today and report on the news coming out of the Steve Jobs Theater at the new Apple Campus beginning at 19:00 CET (1:00PM ET/10:00AM PT).
And the Apple Online Store is now unavailable as the new products are being added to the website…
Unveiled at upscale celeb hotel Soho House Berlin last week, Studio3 Wireless is Beats’ first noise-cancelling headphone and the first truly joyful fruits of its liaison with Apple.
Having had an admittedly brief demo from Beats prez Luke Wood, I’d say they’re also probably the brand’s best cans ever, and more than worthy of a place draped artfully on the heads of the world’s top music and basketball stars.
This is a new kind of Beats, addressing many long-standing criticisms of the brand.
They sound less processed and unnatural than many previous of its headphones (despite the amount of processing that’s actually going on to quell noise and so on). I wouldn’t describe them as excessively bassy, and at £299 you can’t really call them overly expensive either, as they’re priced in line with the most popular noise-cancelling cans on the market.
– Posted While Away From The Office Utilizing The BlogPress App On My iPhone 7 Plus…
I am gearing up for the big iPhone 6s event tomorrow in California. And Apple just might have a nice Twitter secret up it’s sleeve when Tim Cook and Eddy Cue take mainstage to present so exciting Apple news.
I am personally gearing up for my big New York City trip (okay, okay, it’s still some five weeks till take-offÂ from Copenhagen International Airport) but earlier today I tested Harris Faulkner’s little Periscope test prior to Outnumbered on FOX News Channel today at 6PM EST.
PeriscopeÂ is developingÂ an app for the new Apple TV, according to multiple sources. It will allow users to watch livestreams on their television that are broadcasted from Twitterâ€™s Periscope app. You could consider it a coming of age moment, considering the acquired startupâ€™s website isÂ Periscope.tv
Tomorrow, Apple will unveil an upgraded Apple TV set-top box that includes an Apple TV App Store featuring appsÂ built by third-party developers,Â BuzzFeed NewsÂ previously reported. Games are slated to be a big focus for the Apple TV platform thatâ€™s built on iOS, thanks to aÂ multi-functional new remote controllerÂ reported by 9to5MacÂ that includesÂ motion-control. But the Apple TV platform will also support an array of other experiences. Few of the apps have been outed yet, but sources confirm Periscope will be one of them.
The only ever iPhone I have dropped and cracked the screen on was the glass-on-glass iPhone 4.
I am not so sure that going back to glass is such a great idea. But then again it’s rumored for the iPhone 7 so that’s a problem for me to cope with in September 2016.
A new rumor out of Apple’s supply chain in Asia suggests that the company could be returning to using ultra-thin glass-on-glass touch panels for next year’s line of iPhones, but will remain using in-cell touch panels for the “iPhone 6s” and “iPhone 6s Plus,” both predicted to launch this month (viaÂ DigiTimes). The sources cite Apple’s issues with production bottlenecks of the in-cell technology which prevent the company from “adding new features as well as increasing resolutions.”
Hot on the heels of Netflix and Amazon now comes word that Apple will be joiningÂ the crowd.
I don’t think that’s the right move for Apple.
Just like having Cupertino produce a full-fledged car from scratch up sound like just too much diversification producing movies and television series is better left to pros.
However, Apple excels at diverting content. And now Apple is teaming of with networking juggernaut Cisco for faster downloads and uploads for iPhones and iPads.
Following in the wake of Netflixâ€™s success with original programming, sources withinÂ AppleÂ have beenÂ reported to be reaching out to studio executives in regards to creating television shows andÂ moviesÂ exclusively distributed byÂ theÂ Cupertino-based company.
DetailedÂ by VarietyÂ earlier today, Apple wants to start hiring a developmentÂ team before the end of the year and begin production as soon as early 2016.Â With more than $200 billionÂ in cash reserves, Apple could also just purchase a production studio with a proven track record that would develop original content.
Been there, done that.
I have been jailbreaking everything from my iPhone to my iPad â€“ hell, even my Apple TV 2 has been jailbroken.
But as Apple has improved the UI of iOS over the years, I have dropped the notion of jailbreaking my devices.
Of course, everyone who has dabbled in jailbreaking knows that there is an inherent risk of either bricking your iPhone into a nice looking albeit expensive letter weight or opening the iPhone of to exploit by nefarious online crooks.
Just Say No. To Jailbreaking.
If you enjoy customizing your iPhone, jailbreaking can be aÂ positiveÂ thing â€” although that doesnâ€™t mean it comes without risks.
According to a new report, around 225,000 Apple accounts have been stolen by malware on jailbroken iPhones, in what is claimed to be â€œone of the largest known thefts of its kind.â€ In some cases, this data was then used to make unauthorized purchases.
Named KeyRaider, the malware was installed from an unauthorized jailbreak app store. Most of the affected users live in China, which is where the malware was first discovered by aÂ Yangzhou University student earlier this summer.
While Apple Pay has yet to launch in Denmark the service just got a bump up in the amount allowed for each transaction just waving your iPhone 6 over the pay terminal in the store toÂ Â£30 which is about US$46 and DKK305.
Come on, Apple. Make a deal with nets in Denmark to introduce Apple Pay to the very, very Apple and iPhone friendly country to the north.
UK residents can now make contactless payments of up toÂ Â£30 without the need for a PIN. The increase from the prior limit ofÂ Â£20 means that people will be able to use phone-based payment services like Apple Pay, as well as contactless cards, for a wider range of transactions across the country. The UK Cards Association, which decided on the change, says that Â£30 covers common usages like an average supermarket spend, as well as most payments made in pubs, cinemas, gift shops, and elsewhere.
The question remains how long this limit will last. Apple Pay has no transaction limit in the US, the only other country where it’s available, but the iPhone guarantees an extra layer of security. In the UK, many people also use contactless cards that work without any other authentication, so the limit is in place to prevent easy fraud and theft if the card is lost. Some retailers have been operating terminals with a higher transaction limit for Apple Pay, but today’s move raises the bar across the nation.
Tim Cook and Apple wants more business users for their line of mobile and handheld iOS devices.
So, today Apple and Cisco go on the record with their new business deal to add oomph to the upload and download speeds on iPhones and iPads.
AppleÂ® and Cisco today announced a partnership to create a fast lane for iOS business users by optimizing CiscoÂ networks for iOS devices and apps, integrating iPhoneÂ® with Cisco enterprise environments and providing unique collaboration on iPhone and iPadÂ®.
â€œiOS is the worldâ€™s best mobile platform, and nearly every Fortune 500 and Global 500 company today has put iOS at the center of their mobile strategy,â€ said Tim Cook, Appleâ€™s CEO. â€œiPhoneÂ and iPad have become essential tools for the modern workforce and are changing the way work gets done. Together with Cisco, we believe we can give businesses the tools to maximize theÂ potential of iOS and help employees become even more productive using the devices they already love.â€
â€œNinety-five percent of companies in the Fortune 500 count on Cisco Collaboration and Cisco networks to help their teams be more productive,â€ said Cisco Executive Chairman John Chambers.Â â€œThrough this engineering and go-to-market partnership, weâ€™re offering our joint customers the ability to seamlessly extend that awesome Cisco environment to their favorite iOS devices.Â Together, weâ€™re going to help teams achieve higher levels of productivity and effectiveness.â€
As I wrote earlier the Apple TV 4 will be in stores in October, 2015 with at new kind of streaming service.
Now, 9To5Mac reports that the Apple TV 4 will also be a gaming device using Bluetooth and advanced Wi-Fi.
Be on the lookout for a whole category of gadgets and accessories for Apple TV 4 as a gaming device taking on Sony PlayStation Â and the Xbox… !?!?
Catastrophic breakdown of a website can be devastating.
Case in point is yours truly and this site: vassing.com.
I had built a pretty damn decent website one year ago but deleted all when I my mistake deleted the MySQL Database that ran the website. And then puff….. everything went away. And it just did not come back.
I hope and pray that this paid-for service by VaultPress will be absolutely fool-proof.
Now, vassing.com is back online. And this time I am paying VaultPress for automatic backups for total peace of mind.
So far so soon. I think it’s a good value for money. You can backup your WordPress site starting here at VaultPress.
Apple is rumored to be ready to ship a brand-new iPad model affectionately known in the rumor mill as the iPad Pro with a spectacularly new 12.9-inch display.
At this point in my Apple and iOS Consumer Career I am not willing to rule anything out.
However, when word first came about the iPad mini I went to war against the notion of Apple putting out an iOS device to squeeze in between the iPhone and the iPad.
I even swore online never to get one. Well, I got an iPad mini Retina now as my only iPad (I owned every regular sized from the original iPad in 2010 thru the first iPad Air in 2013. I sold the iPad Air earlier on this year.)
Parts shipments for a 12.9-inch “iPad Pro” will likely begin in September, resulting in production of about 1 million units per month this year â€” but with new touchscreen technology and suppliers, according to a J.P. Morgan investor memo.
In order to improve input accuracy, the jumbo-sized iPad will likely use a “glass-film-film” (GFF) touch panel structure rather than the glass-film in the iPad Air and mini, J.P. Morgan’s analysts said, citing supply chain visits. That could be consistent with claims that the tablet will support aÂ Bluetooth stylus, for which accuracy would be paramount.
Hey Guys, so I’m right back at it.
Creating new contents for vassing.com and testing several ways to input my blog and Apple tech site while on the move.
For this, I am still getting to grips with the BlogPad Pro app and right now punching in the characters using my old, trusty Apple Wireless Keyboard to type way faster and better than using the iPad onboard keyboard.
I am the proud owner of one Apple TV with an onboard 160GB harddrive, one Apple TV 2 that is jailbroken with Firecore and finally an Apple TV 3 run through OverPlay.net’s VPN service US IP so I get all the good stuff while couch surfing in front of the altar right here in downtown Copenhagen.
I am very excited about the newly rumored Apple TV 4 as it’ll sport some kind of onboard streaming service that I guess I can sign up for immediately as I also have a US Apple Account for all the nice stuff Apple put on the US App Store but that is out of reach for people in Denmark for example who exclusively use the Danish Apple App Store.
Will you be getting an Apple TV 4 in October, 2015 â€“ or will you pass on this one?
Leave a comment below.
With the official debut of theÂ next-generation Apple TV less thanÂ two weeks away, sources have provided additional details on Appleâ€™s pricing, availability, and product lineup plans for its set-top devices. According to sources, the fourth-generation Apple TVÂ will be priced below $200, and is on track to become available in October. Apple executives are apparently stillÂ finalizing the price of the revamped living room device, but the latest options call for a starting price point ofÂ either $149 or $199, both higher than theÂ third-generation Apple TVâ€¦
The new Apple TV will come at a premium price compared with theÂ current model, which was originally priced at $99 from its launch inÂ 2012, thenÂ was reduced to $69 thisÂ March. As the new box will be considerably more expensive than popular alternatives fromÂ Roku,Â GoogleÂ andÂ Amazon, Apple plans to keep the $69 third-generation deviceÂ for sale as an entry level model withinÂ the Apple TV product line. The new Apple TV 4 will be very similar to the current model in appearance, but it will be thicker and slightly wider, sources say.
This past weekend I went ahead and canceled my three moths free trial of Apple Music.
Well, you can’t really cancel entirely. The trial will run its due course until September 30, 2015 but will not renew after my cancellation right there on my iPhone 6 in the new Music app.
The main reason I canceled the new Apple Music service is because Apple Music totally and utterly fucked up all my precious Cover Art that I have collected and harvested over the past 14 years. Especially, for all my R&B/Soul tracks and album from the 1980s.
However, Apple Music still going strong out there as AppleInsider.com reports:
Taking advantage of a traditionally large and young viewing audience, Apple during Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards debuted two Apple Music commercials featuring The Weeknd and a guest appearance by John Travolta.
Apple dedicated some of its VMA ad space to a two-part episodic narrative, both starring The Weeknd, touting the artist’s music and shining a spotlight on Apple Music’s user interface, namely playlist functions.
It’s Sunday. It’s time for the big Sunday news talkshows on US television. And then there is the media and the journalists looking into… well, themselves.
Even in Denmark we have the Presselogen Media Criticism Show on TV 2 NEWS (showing at 10AM, 1PM and 9PM Sundays CET).
Right now, I watch Brian Stelter on CNN Reliable Sources on CNN U.S. (showing 11AM EST) while I usually catch a re-run of Media Buzz with Howard Kurtz on FOX News Channel on my MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
This is my first attempt at blogging directly on my iPad mini Retina using a brand new app calledÂ BlogPad Pro that I just got on the App Store.
So far so good. I have had the apps Blogsy and BlogPress for over a year now but the site vassing.com has been offline for a considerable amount of time due to a catastrophic error deleting a crucial MySQL database.
However, we are back in business now. And I’ll post this one right away….
This is what I get on my iPhone 6 from Siri asking about givingÂ us a little hint. First one on Wednesday and the last one just a few minutes ago onÂ Thursday:

Josh Earnest at the The White House has just commented on the Virginia double killing.
Still no word on Flangan’s condition; last report it was critical.
WDBJÂ is welcoming two new reporters to its news team.
The Roanoke CBS-affiliate this week announced the additions of Bryce Williams (far left) and Orlando Salinas (near left).
Williams joins WDBJ as a multimedia journalist and general assignment reporter. He has worked as a reporter at a number of stations throughout the South, including WNCT in Greenville, NC, WTWC in Tallahassee, and WTOC in Savannah.
Salinas will work as a reporter at WDBJâ€™s New River Valley newsroom, based in Blacksburg, VA. Most recently, Salinas served as a national news correspondent for Fox News, based in Miami, where he covered domestic and international stories for over 12 years.
â€œAttracting Orlando and Bryce, two veteran reporters with an enormous scope of experience to our team, is a testament to the quality and professionalism of the news produced daily by the WDBJ7 team,â€ WDBJ news director Dan Dennison said in a statement.

When he was fired from the station WDBJ7 had to get to police to help escort him out of the office.
WDBJ7 General Manager tells FOW News that Flanagan was an unhappy man.
Alison Parker’s fiancee has spoken fondly of Alison on Twitter. Adam Ward’s girlfriend was working in the control room at WDBJ7 when Adam was shot and killed on live morning TV.
2PM: Franklin County, VA. Press Conference on the double shooting and the suspect, Flanagan.
Flangan is in critical condition.
I have not seen FOX News or MSNBC showing the actual live footage from this morning at 6:45AM on WDBJ7.
CNN’s Carol Costello showed the filming of the double murders two or three times at the top of the hour this morning as the only national news cast.
ABC News says the 23-page manifesto was sent from someone calling themselves Bryce Williams.
FOX News reports that there are conflicting reports about whether Flanagan is dead or alive.
WDBJ7 is a CBS affiliate but also partnering with CNN.
Alison Parker, 24, who was killed this morning actaully had her last day at WDBJ7 today. She was moving on to another city and another TV journalist job. And she was going to get married to her fiancee.
The General Manager of WDBJ7 tells CNN that Flanagan stayed in city after firing and sometimes met former employees but that Flanagan never turned up at the TV station after being let go.
As of right now it is being reported that Flanagan is in custody and receiving treatment for self-inflicted gun shots.
ABC News reports, that it received a 23-page manifesto by fax from Flanagan sometime between midnight and five o’clock this morning. No word yet of contents. The manifesto has been turned over to authorities.

The killer is STILL ALIVE
Morten Vassing | 16:04 LIVE BLOGGING: Bryce Williams Killed After Shooting Two Journalists
Vester L. Flanagan, real name, has killed himself on I66 after posting chilling photos and videos.
Okay, here we go: Vester L. Flanagan is sought after by local law enforcement in Roanoke, VA.
I am currently keeping track on this crime story unfolding in the U.S.
Okay, CNN is still on top. The sick fucker aka Bryce Williams filmed the double murder with a GoPro camera and posted the video of the killings on Twitter (his Twitter account is now suspended).
I am on my MacBook Pro working on this site when I have my own News Central going on in Firefox in the Space next door as the story of two WDBJ7 reporters are shot and killed live on TVÂ breaks on the news.
Crazy world. RIP Alison Parker and Adam Ward.
I always have FOX News, CNN U.S., MSNBC and SKY News running on my Mac.
This is the shooter who is believed to be a disgruntled WDBJ employee who has killed his two former colleagues. Local law enforcement is closing in on the suspect as they have his identity, his car and license plate.
Quicksilver for Mac is the very first thing I install on a new Mac or after a clean install. Period.
It’s fucking fabulous and I can’t believe it’s free. But it is and you can get it too for you Mac.
First off the app Quicksilver is more an extension of your powerful Mac’s features than an app as such. Quicksilver saves your time and getting a tennis elbow from extended use of your mouse or Trackpad on the Mac.
What Quicksilver does â€“ and does really, really well and fast â€“ is open your apps and almost anything on your Mac. I have it setup to kick in when I hit [CMD]+[.] (thats it!) I hit the [CMD] key to the right of the Spacebar with my index finger followed immediately with my middle finger (don’t even go there!) hitting the [.] PERIOD key. Then you just have to hit one other alpha key and [ENTER] â€“ and behold the magic.
And as you get to use Quicksilver more and more Quicksilver will learn your preferences for easy access to every single one of your apps installedÂ Â on your Mac as well as Preferences and so much more.
On my MacBook Pro Retina running Yosemite 10.10.5 Quicksilver loads fast after booting and I am just three keystrokes away from being productive on the Mac:
[CMD]+[.]+[S]+[ENTER] opens Safari
[CMD]+[.]+[A]+[ENTER] opensÂ Applications folder but [CMD]+[.]+[AM]+[ENTER] opensÂ AirMail 2
[CMD]+[.]+[P]+[ENTER] opensÂ Preferences but [CMD]+[.]+[PA]+[ENTER]Â opensÂ Pages (you get the idea).
And so on and so on. Quicksilver picks ups your personal flavor as use it, and even when it is not up to perfection in your personal choices you can simply force the damn thing into submission: I had [CMD]+[.]+[L]+[ENTER] opening Logic Pro X but it wanted Quicksilver to open Logoist 2 when hitting [CMD]+[.]+[L]+[ENTER], so I went ahead repeatedly hitting [CMD]+[.]+[L]+[ENTER]Â andÂ repeatedly picking Logist 2 from the dropdown menu (see images below). After doing this perhaps five or six times Quicksilver complied.
When I first made the big jump from M$ to Mac in May, 2007, I stocked up on loads of glossy magazines like MacWorld, MacFormat and MacUser and kept reading positive things about Quicksilver (which was also a big thing for Mac users eight years) but I didn’t get it back then.
Then when I read about it about Quicksilver very positively a few years into my Mac career I gave it a second go and this time doing it properly and researching a bit about Quicksilver’s usefulness and some trial and error effort on my part. And since then I have been very satisfied with Quicksilver â€“ and I am certain you will be too.
(Some Mac users use the onboard Spotlight [CMD]+[Spacebar]+SA for Safari and so forth while others utilize Albert, I stick with Quicksilver which I rate at five out of five stars).
Quicksilver is a fast and free Mac OS X productivity application that gives you the power to control your Mac quickly and elegantly. Quicksilver learns your habits, making your everyday chores simple and efficient.
Granted, I was never aware of a tech guru named Steve Jobs at the time of Apple’s unveiling of the infamous Apple II computer. Hell, I didn’t even own a computer at that time.
I had for a brief moment a Commodore 64 at the tender young age of 16 years during the hot summer of 1984 growing up in a small suburb of Copenhagen.
Fast forward 31 years and I am an Apple Fanboy. Go figure.
San Franciscoâ€™s 7,000-seat Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
Apple still hasnâ€™t made an announcement as to where next monthâ€™s iPhone 6s event will take place. However,Â according to a new report it may be set to rock San Franciscoâ€™s 7,000-seat Bill Graham Civic Auditorium â€” the same venue where Steve Jobs and Wozniak first unveiled the Apple II.
The building has been hired for a week-long â€œprivate eventâ€ lasting from September 4 until September 13, which would be more than enough time for Apple to make the necessary preparations, such as installing product banners, setting up demos, and the like.
My go-to camera for the past five years or so has been the iPhone in my front right jeans pocket. It has seen is fair share of upgrades and at present does not match some of the really higher resolution smartphones out there.
All that is about to change next month as Apple unveils the iPhone 6S with a new and improved 12MB back camera. My only problem is if it’ll leave my Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adapter for iPhone 6 (which I haven’t even received for the FedEx yet).
Well, I guess theÂ Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adapter will come in an upgrades iPhone 6S version (as I rejected getting the iPro Lens Kit from Schneider Optics as the case is wound so tightly around the iPhone 6 that it’s a pain in the ass to get on and especially off the damn iPhone. Also, I don’t think the case by Element CaseÂ will work with my Lanparte 3 Axis gimbal).
A person â€œwithin Appleâ€™s supply chainâ€ toldÂ Business Insider MalaysiaÂ that a new five-element lens is being produced, designed to work with a 12 megapixel sensor upgraded from the 8 megapixel sensor found in current iPhone 6 handsets. The unnamed person went on to reveal that a more complex six-element lens has also been ordered for a future undisclosed iPhone.
Why add a lens element?
Each element in a lens enables further refinement of the image, including the correction of unwanted distortions which can result in the bending of straight lines, as well as the removal of any coloured fringes which can often appear at the edges of an uncorrected photo.
Hey, it’s timeÂ to spring into action.
Here’s the first shot of the day
– Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
Oh, it’s that time of year again: Time to upgrade the iPhone to the next iteration. I’ll actually be going to New York City to get an iPhone 6S 128GBÂ Gold in two months time.
In the meantime you can get your hands on the new iPhone 6S which is rumored to be sporting a new and vastly improved 12MB camera and 2GB onboard RAM. If you are in the U.S. or the other big markets like UK, Germany, France, Italy, you can get itÂ Sept. 18, 2015. In Denmark probably true to nature Oct. 2, 2015
At least two out of three major German carriers are on board for Sept. 18, sourcesÂ explained toÂ Macerkopf. The two participating companies haven’t be
en identified, but the German wireless market is controlled mostly by O2, Vodafone, and T-Mobile DE (owned by Deutsche Telekom). All three will likely be ready on the same day, since they already carry the iPhone 6.
Apple is expected to reveal at least two new iPhones â€” including a so-called “6s Plus” â€”Â on Sept. 9, and ship them later in the month. A Sept. 18 date would be consistent with the company’s launch strategy in recent years, which has involved putting iPhones on sale the second Friday after their announcement.
I made this quick video with my iPhone 6 mounted on a big ass Manfrotto tripod with the TimeLapse app for iOS.
