    Apple says their smartwatches will soon be able to function as walkie-talkies. I of course thought of this line from the 1995 movie Tommy Boy: "I can't hear you. You're trailing off. And did I catch a 'niner' in there? Were you calling from a walkie-talkie?" It's nice that Apple is finally bringing their technology up to the standards of 1945.

    Here are the highlights from Apple's 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference

    Sales of Apple iPhones are poorer than expected but investors needn't feel bad. A year ago, Apple shares were $145.42 and today they're $191.23.

    Apple warns suppliers that iPhone demand is falling
    CNN Tech, Jun 8 2018 10:46 AM

    Apple may be worried that its next iPhones won't be as popular as its last. The company has told suppliers to to manufacture 20% fewer components for its upcoming iPhones. That could signal it expects waning enthusiasm for its flagship smartphone. A year ago, Apple told suppliers to prepare for shipments of 100 million iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X devices. This year, Apple is taking a cautious approach, telling suppliers to prepare for 80 million iPhones. Apple is preparing to introduce three new iPhones in the fall.

    Last week, Apple announced that the demand for iPhones is falling. This week, Apple announced plans to introduce three new iPhone models. Maybe next week, Apple will announce that this week's announcement doesn't make much sense in light of last week's announcement.

    Apple is planning 3 new iPhone models this year
    Business Insider, Jun 15 2018

    Apple is expected to release three new iPhone models in September. Two of the phones will be built around screens using OLED technology, the same type of display in the iPhone X. One will have an LCD screen, the type of display on the iPhone 8 and all previous iPhones. Electronics manufacturers say Apple expects the lower-cost LCD model to be the most popular.

    Netflix, Hulu and Amazon have streaming services. Disney is launching a streaming service. Apple is now planning a streaming service. Whatever happened to the idea of watching television programs on television?

    This is an excellent idea. It will end situations such as "911. What is your emergency?" "I've been shot!" "Where are you?" "Uhhhh.......I don't know. Some big street."

    Apple is making a small change to the way iPhones call 911
    Business Insider, Jun 18 2018

    Starting later this year, the way iPhones contact 911 will subtly change in a way that could let emergency assistance find the caller faster and more easily.

    Apple is teaming up with RapidSOS to include a new way to transfer location data to 911 call centers over the internet, building on the current system which was developed for landlines and uses older, phone-based data. The data provided to 911 centers includes information on location from cell towers as well as data from GPS and Wi-Fi networks.

    Now, when an iPhone calls 911, location data within 50 meters will be routed to a RapidSOS dispatch center, which will pass it on to the local 911 center. The new feature could reduce response times in emergency situations.
