Apple not in settlement talks 'at any level' with Qualcomm: source

Apple Inc (AAPL.O) is not in talks “at any level” to settle its wide-ranging legal dispute with mobile chip maker Qualcomm Inc (QCOM.O), according to a source familiar with the matter. In the past, Apple used Qualcomm’s modem chips in its flagship iPhone models to help them connect to wireless data networks. But early last year, Apple sued Qualcomm in federal court in San Diego, alleging that the chip company’s practice of taking a cut of the selling price of phones as a patent license fee was illegal.

Apple knocked its big iPad and Mac event out of the park

Last month, Apple held its big annual iPhone event— and it was pretty disappointing. It had none of the surprises Apple is known for, and the company even discontinued a handful of beloved products, something many people didn't see coming. But Apple knocked its big iPad and Mac showcase on Tuesday out of the park. At its second big event of the fall, in Brooklyn, New York, Apple debuted three redesigned products: a new MacBook Air, a new Mac Mini, and two new iPad Pro models.

That’s all she wrote, Apple’s October event is over and it’s likely that draws a line under a phenomenal 2018 for the Cupertino, California, company. While we didn’t get to see everything we were hoping — there was no mention of new AirPods or the AirPower wireless charger — we did see some well deserved and long-sought-after updates to some beloved lines. There is a new MacBook Air, the diminutive but mighty Mac mini, and an update for the iPad Pro that comes with two new sizes, an updated design, and the all-new Apple Pencil.

iPhone XR goes on sale around the world, but fans mostly stay home

The iPhone XR might have been dubbed the best value iPhone in years, but shoppers weren't giving it the usual show of love. The Apple Store in Sydney is normally a hive of activity on iPhone launch day, but in the hour before opening its doors for Day 1 of iPhone XR sales, the usual queues were nowhere to be seen. The usual crowds that line up for Apple's newest smartphones didn't bother to show for the iPhone XR. Apple Stores around the world opened their doors on Friday for the first day selling the iPhone XR, and while Apple has offered something a little different than on previous launches -- more colors and arguably the best bang for your buck from the iPhone in years -- the queues were nowhere to be seen.

President Donald Trump routinely calls old friends, business partners, and confidants on his personal iPhone while in the White House, giving Chinese and Russia spies easy access to his personal communications and interests, reports The New York Times. The story cites American intelligence reports, which detail how Trump aides have repeatedly warned the president not to use his personal iPhone and to use the secure White House landline instead. Despite the warnings, Trump continues to take personal cellphone calls, and the White House has resolved to simply hoping the president doesn’t discuss classified matters over the phone.
