APPLE TO OPEN HER FIRST TAIWAN RETAIL LOCATION ON JULY 1

APPLE TO OPEN HER FIRST TAIWAN RETAIL LOCATION ON JULY 1
Earlier this month, Apple announced its first ever Taiwan retail store, revealing that it would be located in the Taipei 101 skyscraper. Now, Apple has officially confirmed a grand opening for the store: July 1st.

As reported by Focus Taiwan, Apple’s Taiwan retail store is set to open at 11AM on July 1st, with the festivities kicking off with a ceremony showcasing art work from paper cutting artist Yang Shih-yi.

Customers will have access to the full range of Apple products and services in the retail space, located in the Taipei 101 shopping mall, and learn from and exchange ideas with each other, the company said.

Located in the Xinyi District on the ground floor and basement level of Taipei 101, the store will cover 1,322 square meters and feature a multi-level experience. The store will also presumably feature Apple’s latest retail design that sections off the Genius area from the shopping area.

Taipei 101, formerly known as the Taipei World Financial Center, officially opened back in 2004 and offers 101 floors of offices, restaurants, observatory decks, and shopping. The Taipei 101 Mall is located on the basement floor through the fifth floor and will house Apple’s retail location, as well as stores from various other retailers.

Apple indicates that the store will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 to 21:30 and from 11:00 to 22:00 on Friday and Saturday.

Apple announced its Taipei 101 location earlier this month, touting it as its first retail location in the country. In the past, third-party resellers have been the primary retail source of Apple products in Taiwan.

IPHONE 8 NOW CREATING MASSIVE SHORTAGE OF DRAM AND NAND CHIPS

Component orders for the iPhones are creating a worldwide shortage of DRAM and NAND chips, with competitors struggling to secure their own supplies, says a report.
IPHONE 8 NOW CREATING MASSIVE SHORTAGE OF DRAM AND NAND CHIPS
Some competitors are placing orders well before they need the chips, others are paying premiums to ensure a supply and – in the worst of cases – may even be forced to reduce the specs of their phones if they are unable to buy the chips they need …

Reuters reports that even large companies like LG are being forced to act.

‘After the supply shortages emerged we brought forward our procurement decisions … to ensure a stable supply, smartphone and personal computer maker LG said in a statement, adding it had pushed up quarterly purchase decisions by about a month.

Smaller suppliers may be forced to cut back on both RAM and flash storage.

Some analysts say device makers could be forced to cut down on the amount of DRAM chips, which help devices perform multiple tasks at once, or NAND chips that are used for long-term data storage, on new products if the cannot get enough chips.

Huawei has already used less advanced chips in its flagship P10 model, while component shortages are said to be limiting production of Nintendo’s Switch.

Camera sensors are another component in high demand, with Sony reportedly prioritizing orders from Apple and three other major brands.

An unnamed chip supplier said that the iPhone was in large part responsible for the flash storage shortage.

The problem will be more acute for the NAND market, where the iPhone remains a critical source of demand given the huge sales volumes and recent moves to increase storage capacity on the device.

Analysts estimate that Apple buys up around 18% of the world supply of NAND chips, and that this percentage could increase significantly if the iPhone 8 is a success. Some analysts predict that iPhone 8 sales could hit 100M units this year.

While suppliers are working hard to bring additional capacity online, the long lead times means that demand is expected to continue to exceed supply until some time in 2018.

• Added support for HTTP brotli content encoding to URLSession. By default, HTTP requests contain a br value (in addition to gzip and deflate) for the Accept-Encoding HTTP header, informing the web server that the user agent supports brotli encoding. The web server can send an HTTP body with Content-Encoding: br in the HTTP header to indicate that the content is brotli-encoded. URLSession automatically decompresses the HTTP body data and passes the decoded data back to the client in the same way it does for Content-Encoding: gzip. For binary compatibility reasons, URLSession brotli support is enabled only for apps built using the iOS 11 SDK. (27724985)

In addition, clearing the previewProvider does not cause the preview to go back to its non-overridden state. (30385458)SettingthepreviewProviderpropertyofUIDragItemimmediatelyafterthedrag item is created has no effect. (32284908)Workarounds:Implement dragInteraction:previewForLiftingItem:session: in your drag interaction’s delegate to change the lift preview. The preview carries over to the drag session.Change the preview during the drag session by setting previewProvider after the delegate’s sessionWillBegin is called. If you are using UITableView or UICollectionView, there is no direct equivalent of that method, so you may use a delay instead.ThecanLoadObjectsOfClasses:methodofUIDragDropSessionwillberemoved in a later seed. Use canLoadObjectOfClass: instead. (32242367)When dragging more than five items, the drop/cancel animation uses a default animation. The system calls the dropping/canceling preview calls for the first five of these items, even though they are not used. In a later beta, the system will not make these calls, and instead provides an additional API for animating alongside items for which a custom animation cannot be applied. (32299785)DonotusetheclassUIURLDragPreviewViewbecausewillberemovedinalaterbeta. To make drag previews of URLs, use UIDragPreview and UITargetedDragPreview. (32306613)

Table views in Interface Builder documents compiled with Xcode 9.0 may have fixed heights for rows, section headers, and section footers, and may not self-size by default. (32188814)Workaround: Set the table view rowHeight, sectionHeaderHeight, or sectionFooterHeight to UITableViewAutomaticDimension after the table view has been instantiated.UITableView has a new system gesture for quickly selecting rows. A two-finger tap on table views that support multiple selection sets the table view to editing, if it is not already, and selects the tapped row. Unlike a single-finger tap, which toggles selection, the two- finger tap always selects the tapped row and has no effect if the row is already selected. This new gesture is enabled only in apps built for iOS 11. (29127664)UITableView has a new property, separatorInsetReference, that changes how a custom value set in the separatorInset property is interpreted. By default, the value is .fromCellEdges, which means that custom separatorInset values are always interpreted as an inset from the edges of the cell, even in cases where table view would normally use larger automatic insets for the separator, such as a very wide table view when the cellLayoutMarginsFollowReadableWidth property is true.Set the separatorInsetReference to .fromAutomaticInsets to use the separatorInset as a fixed distance from the automatic inset that a table view would normally use.Note that you can always use UITableViewAutomaticDimension for any edge of the separatorInset that you set, to receive the automatic inset on that edge. (31000402)Table views now use estimated heights by default, which also means that cells and section header/footer views now self-size by default. The default value of the estimatedRowHeight, estimatedSectionHeaderHeight, and estimatedSectionFooterHeight properties is now UITableViewAutomaticDimension, which means the table view selects an estimated height to use. You should still provide a more accurate estimate for each property if possible, which is your best guess of the average value of the actual heights. If you have existing table view code that behaves differently when you build your app with the iOS 11 SDK, and you don’t want to adopt self-sizing, you can restore the previous behavior by disabling estimated heights by setting a value of zero for each estimated height property. (30197915)AddingcustomsubviewsdirectlytoUITableViewisnotsupportedandmightbreakina future iOS release. (29094519)The behavior of the delete swipe action has been changed.When implementing commitEditingStyle: to delete a swiped row, delete the row in the data source and call deleteRowsAtIndexPaths: on the table view to show the swipe delete animation. Not calling deleteRowsAtIndexPaths inside of this method results in the swiped row resetting to its resting position. Do not display a confirmation dialog in the implementation of this method, and support undo to allow canceling a deletion. To show a confirmation dialog, use a UIContextualAction instead (described next).

When implementing a destructive UIContextualAction, delete the row in the data source and call the completion handler with true. Do not call deleteRowsAtIndexPaths: in this case. If the deletion fails, call the completion false to cancel the deletion. Although it should generally be avoided, you can show a confirmation dialog to confirm the deletion, and then call the completion handler with true if the user confirms (after deleting the row from its data source), or with false if the user cancels. It is also advised to disable performsFirstActionWithFullSwipe on the UISwipeActionsConfiguration in this case. Note that the completion handler must be called in all cases. (31588888)

When the user selects one of the Accessibility Larger Text content sizes as their preferred content size, UITableViewCell uses a new default layout that is optimized for the larger sizes. The numberOfLines property of UITableViewCell labels (both textLabel and detailTextLabel) changes to 0 (unlimited) by default when the Accessibility content sizes are in use. You may override this by explicitly setting the numberOfLines property. The standard image view and accessory views are aligned with the first line of text in the cell, and cell text wraps around the image in order to maximize the amount of text displayed per line. For the Value1, Value2, and Subtitle styles, the detailTextLabel is arranged underneath the standard textLabel. For UISwitch accessory views, the switch is located below the labels and aligned with the leading edge of the text. Because of these changes, which increase the height of the cell content at Accessibility content sizes, it’s important to use self-sizing cells to ensure that the row height increases as necessary, and to avoid using a fixed row height for all content sizes. (28102750)TheimageNamed:inBundle:compatibleWithTraitCollection:classmethod of UIImage now properly infers the UIDisplayGamut trait if it is not explicitly provided.If you are deploying to earlier versions of iOS, to provide the UIDisplayGamut trait in the trait collection, you pass to imageNamed:inBundle:compatibleWithTraitCollection:. You can obtain the correct value of this trait from the window or view that will display the image. Failing to provide the value can result in images failing to load on devices with P3 displays if the sRGB renditions of those images had been thinned out of the asset catalog. (29915518)UINavigationItem.searchController appears only for view controllers that use a UIScrollView. (32511772)Workaround: Set UINavigationItem.hidesSearchBarWhenScrolling to false.By default, UIKit logging occurs only when unsatisfiable constraints are detected. Use the UIConstraintBasedLayoutThrowExceptionOnUnsatisfiableConstraints

launch argument to add an assertion for early detection of the problem. The launch argument works in iOS 11 and later. (28123998)

MICROSOFT DISABLES ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE FOR WINDOW 10

In early June, Kaspersky Lab filed the complaint against Microsoft.
MICROSOFT DISABLES ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE FOR WINDOW 10
The security company claims the software giant is abusing its market dominance by steering users to its own anti-virus software.

Microsoft says it implemented defences to keep Windows 10 users secure.

Detection rates

In an extensive blog post that does not directly address Kaspersky or its claims, Microsoft says it bundles the Windows Defender Antivirus with Windows 10 to ensure that every single device is protected from viruses and malware.


"We built Windows Defender Antivirus to make a promise to our customers that every Windows 10 device always has protection from viruses malware... our test results are among the top of security industry leaders, including recent real-world testing where Windows Defender Antivirus scored over 99% detection rates," writes Rob Lefferts, a partner director of the Windows and Devices group in enterprise and security at Microsoft.

"We also know that Window customers value choice, and that is why we actively engage with and support a community of over 80 independent software vendors through the Microsoft Virus Initiative (MVI) program.

"This engineering programme enables us to share key technical details of Microsoft technologies with our AV [anti-virus] partners to collaborate on future directions and problem solve on existing security challenges to protect our shared customers from malicious software."

Temporarily disabled

To combat the 300,000 new malware samples being created and spread every day, Microsoft says that it works together with external anti-virus partners.

The technology giant estimates that about 95% of Windows 10 PCs were using anti-virus software that was already compatible with the latest Windows 10 Creators Update.

For the applications that were not compatible, Microsoft built a feature that lets users update their PCs and then reinstall a new version of the anti-virus software.

"To do this, we first temporarily disabled some parts of the AV software when the update began. We did this work in partnership with the AV partner to specify which versions of their software are compatible and where to direct customers after updating," Mr Lefferts writes.

SNAPCHAT INTRODUCES NEW SNAP MAP LOCATION SHARING FEATURE WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO SHARE YOUR LOCATION WITH FRIENDS

SNAPCHAT INTRODUCES NEW SNAP MAP LOCATION SHARING FEATURE WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO SHARE YOUR LOCATION WITH FRIENDS Snapchat is rolling out a new feature known as Snap Map which lets you view Snaps by location and view Stories from around the world.


With the Snap Map, you can view Snaps of sporting events, celebrations, breaking news, and more from all across the world 
Snap’s new location feature even lets you share where you are with friends and follow their location as well.

READ ALSO - SNAPCHAT OVERTAKES TWITTER TO BECOME THE 2ND MOST POPULAR SOCIAL NETWORK BASED ON DAILY USAGE
If you and a friend follow one another, you can share your locations with each other so you can see where they’re at and what’s going on around them! Plus, meeting up can be a cinch 
Only the people you choose can see your location — so if you’re friends with your boss, you can still keep your location on the down low during a “sick day” 
Snaps you submit to Our Story can still show up on the Map, though!


In typical Snapchat style, the new Snap Map is rather hidden within the app. To access the Snap Map, go to the main camera screen and pinch into the screen “like you’re zooming out from a photo” as Snapchat says.
