notifications-120508

Users who visited the iCloud.com website on Tuesday could find a test of a new banner notification feature that was mistakenly made public, revealing a forthcoming feature for the service. An iOS-style notification was at the top of a browser and looked like:

"Default Title for English," the title read, followed by "English - This is test message description."

To the right of the notification was an 'X,' allowing users to close the message from their browser. The test message could not be selected and it did not link anywhere.

nanosim

In May of last year, Apple submitted a proposal for its nano-SIM card design that would replace the current micro-SIM. However, as of couple months ago, the company was fighting with rival mobile phone makers which were pushing their own standards for SIM cards.

Apple plans to block competitors' prying ears with new off-campus cafeteria



cupertino

The San Jose Mercury News reports that on Tuesday the Planning Commission unanimously approved the project of 21,468-square-foot cafeteria near Apple’s Cupertino, Calif., headquarters. The non-Apple employees will not be welcomed in the cafeteria that will allow Apple employees to speak freely about their business without fearing that competitors are eavesdropping.

"We like to provide a level of security so that people and employees can feel comfortable talking about their business, their research and whatever project they're engineering without fear of competition soft of overhearing their conversations," said Dan Wisenhunt, Apple's director of real estate facilities. "That is a real issue today in Cupertino because we've got other companies here in our same business."

The cafeteria will be a two-story building that will include a cafe, meeting rooms, lounge areas and courtyard space. The second floor will be intended for cafeteria employees for storage, locker rooms, restrooms and more. The site will also include 70 parking spaces housed in an underground garage.

Apple's next iPhone expected to launch in October with Qualcomm LTE chip



iphone4spr

Analyst Gene Munster with Piper Jaffray expects that Apple plans to launch its sixth-generation iPhone before October of this year and with LTE 4G connectivity. Last year's iPhone 4S launch was uncharacteristic for Apple, which had previously introduced new handsets at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

"It is more likely the phone launches in October given Qualcomm commentary around 28nm chip supply," he said. "We believe Apple will include LTE in the iPhone 5 as an important feature in the product update."

One-Third of U.S. High School Students Now Own an iPhone



iphone_education_apps

Piper Jaffray’ latest semi-annual survey of 5,600 U.S. high school students show that 34% of surveyed students now own an iPhone, and 40% of surveyed students indicated that they intend to purchase an iPhone within the next six months.

Such boom seems to be driven by low-cost options from Apple. Apple and AT&T dropped the price of the iPhone 3GS to free on-contract with the introduction of the iPhone 4S late last year.

In our most recent survey the percentage of teens that own an iPhone came in at 34%, up from 23% in the Fall and 17% last Spring. We believe the meaningful uptick in iPhone ownership among teens may be driven by the cheaper $49 iPhone 3GS (in some cases free). Interest in purchasing an iPhone in the next 6 months rose to 40% (another all-time high vs. our previous surveys). Purchase intent was at 38% in our last survey in the Fall.
