Apple’s WWDC 2019 image sure looks a lot like AI machine intelligence to me.

Apple has announced the date for June’s WWDC, where it will give the first public peek at improvements to its operating systems, so what changes is it expected to make in iOS 13?

What changes to expect in iOS 13

iOS 12 was widely seen as a maintenance release that prioritized backwards compatibility, stability and performance.

Apple’s decision to support devices back to iPhone 5S drew positive praise and means the OS is now installed on nearly every active iOS device in use anywhere on the planet – a platform advantage no one else enjoys.

The support window may change

With this in mind it is important to note claims Apple plans to severely constrict backward compatibility in iOS 13 to devices back to 2017 (iPhone 7 et al).

This means the iPhones 5S, 6, 6

Apple is once again the most popular tech firm in terms of the emotional connection consumers feel for the firm, according to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2019 Study.

Connection on a connected planet

Apple’s outgoing retail chief, Angela Ahrendts, has previously claimed millennials to be hungry for human connections, so even in a digital age that feeling of intimacy has value.

Apple was not only the number one brand overall, but also the number one brand among both men and women, as well as being number one among millennials, users over 35 and users with incomes of $50,000 or more.

It is interesting that Google was the top brand among people with incomes under $50,000.

These connections have financial value. Top intimate brands in the U.S. continued to significantly outperform the top brands in the Fortune 500 and S&P indices in both revenue and profit over the past 10 years,

The Verge has obtained never-before-seen photos of a development board for the original iPhone, providing an interesting look back at the measures Apple took to ensure the smartphone remained as much of a secret as possible.



The large circuit board contains nearly all of the original iPhone’s components, including its processor, memory, storage, 30-pin dock connector, camera, home button, SIM card slot, and antennas for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. There are also some non-iPhone parts such as two Mini-USB connectors for accessing the baseband.

While this particular Engineering Validation Test (EVT) prototype has an iPhone display attached, the report notes that some boards were even supplied without the screen, meaning that many Apple engineers working on the original iPhone back in 2006-2007 had no idea what the handset would eventually look like.



The Verge‘s Tom Warren:

If an engineer inside Apple received a development board like this without a screen,

A major U.S. study has confirmed that the Apple Watch can successfully spot the early sings of serious heart rhythm problems – proving it works like a  doctor you always have with you.

Apple Watch heart sensor is accurate

Stanford Medicine has published the results of the largest ever study of its kind, the Apple Heart Study.

This study looked at over 400,000 participants from all 50 states across eight months.

Study results showed 0.5 percent of the over 400,000 participants received an irregular heart rhythm notification, illustrating the feature’s ability to surface important health information without increasing a doctor’s workload.

This is great news as Apple explores the potential of mobile devices, wearables, AI and remote health care.

“The results of the Apple Heart Study highlight the potential role that innovative digital technology can play in creating more predictive and preventive health care,” said Lloyd Minor,
