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.

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.

Apple rebukes Australia’s “dangerously ambiguous” anti-encryption bill

Apple has strongly criticized Australia’s anti-encryption bill, calling it “dangerously ambiguous” and “alarming to every Australian.” The Australian government’s draft law — known as the Access and Assistance Bill — would compel tech companies operating in the country, like Apple, to provide “assistance” to law enforcement and intelligence agencies in accessing electronic data. The government claims that encrypted communications are “increasingly being used by terrorist groups and organized criminals to avoid detection and disruption,” without citing evidence.

New Apple patent suggests iPhones could warn against spam calls one day

A new Apple patent could finally give iPhone owners some relief from spam calls by automatically recognizing a fake call and warning users accordingly, via AppleInsider. As the patent claims describe, Apple’s system would try to analyze the technical data of incoming calls to determine whether or not they’re legitimate calls or masked, forwarded internet calls that are hiding behind a spoofed caller ID. Once a call has been identified, the system would then display a warning to the user that the incoming call might not be legitimate.
