Ciitizen raises $17 million to give cancer patients better control over their health records – TechCrunch

Ciitizen, the company founded by the creators of Gliimpse (an Apple acquisition that’s been incorporated into the company’s HealthKit) which is developing tools to help patients organize and share their medical records, has raised $17 million in new funding. Ciitizen, like Gliimpse before it, is an attempt to break down the barriers that keep patients from being able to record, store, and share their healthcare information with whomever they want in their quest for treatment. The digitization of health records

Apple should implement this cool ‘environmentally-lit’ UI effect in iOS

Apple should implement this cool 'environmentally-lit' UI effect in iOS

We may have bid farewell to skeuomorphic design in mobile and desktop interfaces for now, but an ex-Apple engineer is taking another shot at mimicking reality in UIs to great effect. In a video released earlier this week, Bob Burrough showed off his work in progress on an ‘environmentally-lit user interface.’ Essentially, a fisheye lens attached to an iPhone‘s front camera captures a wide-angle shot of the room around him, and that data is used to create a lighting map,

Tech giants offer empty apologies because users can’t quit – TechCrunch

Tech giants offer empty apologies because users can’t quit – TechCrunch

A true apology consists of a sincere acknowledgement of wrong-doing, a show of empathic remorse for why you wronged and the harm it caused, and a promise of restitution by improving ones actions to make things right. Without the follow-through, saying sorry isn’t an apology, it’s a hollow ploy for forgiveness. That’s the kind of “sorry” we’re getting from tech giants — an attempt to quell bad PR and placate the afflicted, often without the systemic change necessary to prevent

Apple confirms its T2 chip will block some third-party repairs

Apple confirms its T2 chip will block some third-party repairs

Apple yesterday confirmed that its new security chip T2 – which it uses in MacBooks launched this year – will prevent third-party repairs to some degree. Responding to a query from The Verge, the company verified that parts like the logic board and Touch ID components for the new Macbooks can’t be replaced by a third-party repair shop – and so you’ll have to visit an authorized Apple service center to get your laptops fixed. However, it didn’t confirm if

Apple’s sky-high prices are here to stay

It’s not just you: Apple’s hardware is more expensive than ever. That may be bad news for your wallet, but it’s a trend that’s likely to continue — because it’s working. The company, which became the first ever to reach a $1 trillion market cap in August, just reported another record quarter, with revenue up 20 percent from the same time last year. And, yet, iPhone sales weren’t as strong as expected, with the company selling about same number of

Apple updates iOS 12 to fix iPhone XS charging woes

Apple updates iOS 12 to fix iPhone XS charging woes

Apple has just released iOS 12.0.1, which brings a couple of key fixes for bugs plaguing the latest iPhone XS and XS Max. That includes the curious problem of the iPhone XS requiring users to wake their devices before they’ll begin charging when a Lightning cable is plugged in. The update will also prevent your iPhone XS or XS Max from connecting to a 2.4GHz channel on a Wi-Fi network, when a higher bandwidth 5GHz channel is available. Hopefully, that’ll

At Apple’s big event on Wednesday, the company rebooted its iPhone lineup with three new devices. There’s the more premium 5.8-inch iPhone XS and even larger 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max.  And then there’s the 6.1-inch iPhone XR — arguably the most interesting new iPhone announced.

Apple reportedly pauses its plans to launch payments in India

Apple’s hit the brakes on its efforts to bring its mobile payments service to India – leaving fans in the country waiting indefinitely for the feature to become available there. The company’s senior vice president for internet software and services, Eddy Cue, expressed interest in bringing Apple Pay to India almost a year ago. But regulatory hurdles and challenges in designing and engineering the service to work with India’s UPI platform for instant transactions between bank accounts has caused the

Apple buys Denver startup building waveguide lenses for AR glasses

Apple has acquired Akonia Holographics, a Denver-based startup that manufactures augmented reality waveguide lenses. The acquisition was confirmed by Apple to Reuters who first reported the news. An Apple spokesperson gave TechCrunch the company’s standard statement, “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally don’t discuss our purpose or plans.” This acquisition offers the clearest confirmation yet from Apple that it is investing resources into technologies that support the development of a lightweight augmented reality headset. There have been

Apple is reportedly doing away with free headphone jack dongles

Apple is reportedly doing away with free headphone jack dongles

It looks like iPhone users will soon live in a dongle-less future. Or, at least a future in which audio jack dongles are no longer free. A Barclays research note viewed by MacRumors says that the new 2018 iPhones will no longer come with the lightning port-to-headphone jack adapter. The maker of the dongle, Cirrus Logic, apparently confirmed the change to Barclays. SEE ALSO: It’s 2018, and dongle hell is still awful “Cirrus didn’t update its FY19 guide… but they
