Google is reportedly gathering health data on millions of Americans

Google is gathering detailed health record information from millions of Americans — and it has not informed patients or doctors, The Wall Street Journal reports. According to WSJ, St. Louis-based Ascension, the second-largest health system in the US, is sharing lab results, diagnoses and hospitalization records, as well as health histories complete with patient names and dates of birth, with Google.

The effort has been dubbed “Project Nightingale,” and a person familiar with the matter told WSJ that at least 150 Google employees have access to data on tens of millions of patients. Google is reportedly using the data to design new, AI-driven software.

Facebook is secretly using your iPhone’s camera as you scroll your feed

iPhone owners, beware. It appears Facebook might be actively using your camera without your knowledge while you’re scrolling your feed.

The issue has come to light after a user going by the name Joshua Maddux took to Twitter to report the unusual behavior, which occurs in the Facebook app for iOS. In footage he shared, you can see his camera actively working in the background as he scrolls through his feed.

The problem becomes evident due to a bug that shows the camera feed in a tiny sliver on the left side of your screen, when you open a photo in the app and swipe down. TNW has since been able to independently reproduce the issue.

This could be Apple’s new triple-camera iPad Pro

Apple appears to be readying new iPad Pro devices with a triple-camera system on the rear similar to the iPhone 11 Pro. Rumors of the triple-camera iPad system first emerged earlier this year, and now Sonny Dickson is revealing what that might look like ahead of Apple’s rumored October event. The rear of the new iPad Pro includes a triple-camera housing that looks very similar to the one found on the iPhone 11 Pro, and the device is reportedly a “final design mockup.” Dickson previously revealed iPhone 11 case renders earlier this year.

If Apple is upgrading its cameras on the iPad Pro then it could mean the tablets no longer lag behind their iPhone counterparts. Current iPad Pro models use a camera system that’s similar to last year’s iPhone XR, and a new iPad Pro with the same iPhone 11 Pro triple-camera system would allow creatives to shoot high quality 4K videos and edit them directly on the device. The mockup device doesn’t include the glass cover found on the iPhone 11 Pro, and Dickson notes it could be a change or “just a minor omission in a device intended to showcase the final physical form of the device.”

Apple’s new, lower priced iPhone draws tepid response in Asia

HANGZHOU, China/SEOUL (Reuters) – Apple Inc’s (AAPL.O) new, lower priced iPhone that comes with a faster processor but lacks 5G technology disappointed Asia, where cheaper and feature-packed handsets from rivals are already available.

The iPhone 11, launched on Tuesday for $50 less than last year’s base XR model, was met with a limp response from social media users in Asian markets that are dominated by Huawei Technologies and Samsung Electronics (005930.KS).

Lowering the entry price point, a rare move from Apple, was likely an effort to attract buyers in China, where Apple has ceded ground to Huawei due to a surge in support from patriotic Chinese consumers after the Chinese brand was caught in the U.S.-China trade standoff, said analysts.

Despite the reduction, the iPhone 11, and even the higher-end models with more camera lenses, are set to come up short in Asia.

“Apple’s new phones were no surprise at all. Only tangible change is having an additional camera on their premium model,” said Park Sung-soon, an analyst at Seoul-based Cape Investment & Securities.

“However, it is noticeable that Apple has made a price cut for the newest iPhone for about $50, which is a very rare move for the company. The move might be aiming to manage and reduce potential risks drawn by the U.S.-China trade war.”

Apple’s iPhone 11 doesn’t have 5G because 5G isn’t ready for the iPhone

As expected, Apple’s 2019 iPhone lineup does not include 5G technology, leaving the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 without the next-generation leap in mobile data speeds we’ve seen on recent smartphones from Samsung, LG, and OnePlus.

But Apple is wise in waiting another year before building 5G into the iPhone, and it’s got nothing to do with safety. 5G networks still feel like they’re very much in a preliminary stage, and only now are carriers starting to build any real momentum by bringing 5G to more cities across the US. But there are other obstacles and snags that led to Apple holding off another year — hopefully just one more — before integrating 5G into the iPhone.

Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro ‘triggering’ fear of holes

People with a fear of small holes have claimed the design of Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro is triggering their phobia.
At its unveiling on Tuesday, many found their attention drawn to its “ultra-wide” rear camera, with three high-powered lenses packed closely together.
The lenses sit alongside the handset’s torch and “audio zoom” microphone.
And hundreds of smartphone users now claim the new design has triggered their “trypophobia”, an aversion to the sight of clusters of small holes.

The term “trypophobia” was first coined in 2005 in online forum Reddit and it has since become widely talked about on social media.
American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson and model Kendall Jenner are among those who say they have the condition.
Vision scientist Dr Geoff Cole, at the University of Essex, was part of the first full scientific study of trypophobia, working with his colleague, Prof Arnold Wilkins.

iPhone 11, Pro and Max hands-on: Apple bets big on the camera

Apple refreshed its line of iPhones for 2019 at an event on Tuesday, announcing the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The phones start at $699, $999 and $1,099, respectively. These new iPhones pick up a fresh palette of colors, longer battery life and a A13 Bionic processor inside that promises faster performance. But more than any other feature, it’s the camera hardware and software that take the headlining role. There are three cameras on the back of the Pro phones and two on the back of the iPhone 11. See below for our early hands-on impressions.

This new crop of iPhones may wear different colors, but in terms of overall design, they look strikingly like last year’s iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR — notch and all.

Apple’s iPhone 11 event will probably happen on September 10

Apple released the seventh iOS 13 beta to registered developers today, and buried within the code is a huge clue as to when we should expect to see the next iPhones unveiled.

An asset within the iOS 13 code is the image below, showing an iOS screenshot with the date of Tuesday, September 10. The asset’s name is “HoldForRelease”, which sort of cements the suspicion that this is the day when Apple will schedule its next big unveiling. Last year, the date on this asset was September 12, and guess when Apple held its iPhone event?
Apple’s iPhone 11 event will probably happen on September 10

A launch of the new iPhones on September 10 would follow precedents set by Apple in years prior. If the company uses the same timeline as before, then expect pre-orders for the three new devices to start on September 13. As for the release date, it should be September 20 for the countries in the first wave, and September 27 for those in the second wave. The same asset shows September 23 on older iPhones and iPads, so maybe that’s when the final release of iOS 13 will be rolling out.
