    How to Cancel Apple Music Subscription 

    Apple Music launched on Tuesday and everyone is getting a free 3-month trial to enjoy the service and see if it works for them. While Beats 1 Radio is free for life and should be available even if you aren’t an Apple Music subscriber, if you did sign up for Apple’s music streaming service – you would’ve been asked to choose between an Individual plan and Family Plan if you did – you will be automatically billed for renewal of your plan the day it expires since Apple already has your credit card details from when you created your iTunes account.

    While the trial is free, it’s possible you received an alert from your bank that some amount has been charged to your card. This is usually a dummy charge to see if your card is indeed valid. Sometimes, a new transaction on your iTunes account triggers the billing of an old charge – for example we were billed Rs. 120 for an app we bought last week when we started our Apple Music trial, something we’ve noticed before as well.

    It’s extremely likely you are enjoying Apple Music right now, but it’s possible you’ll stop using the service at some point during the free trial because you realise it’s not for you or maybe you’ll forget about it completely. Even if you stop using the service, you will still be charged the renewal fee the day your trial expires. Thankfully, there’s a very simple way to stop this.

    Don’t worry, if you continue to use Apple Music and find it good value, you can continue to use the service even if you disable the auto-renewal. By disabling this now, you are just giving yourself the safety net should you stop using the service at some point in the future.

    Here’s you can disable auto-renewal of your Apple Music subscription:

    If you are on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
    1) Open the Music app.

    2) Tap on the Person icon at the top-left corner of the screen. Sign in with your Apple ID and password if promoted.

    3) Tap on View Apple ID. Again, enter your Apple ID password if prompted.

    Signed Up for Free Apple Music Trial at Launch? Last Chance to Cancel Before You Are Billed 

    If you are among those who signed up for the three-month free trial of Apple Music when it launched on June 30, then your trial is about to expire. Apple will start charging you Rs. 120 per month if you signed up for the individual plan, or Rs. 190 per month if you signed up for the family plan. If you love Apple Music, then this might seem like a good deal, but if you’d rather use another music streaming service or just don’t want to pay for Apple Music, then you should cancel your subscription before the three months are up.

    Doing this is a simple process and you can cancel your subscription from the Music app on your iOS device itself. In case you don’t have your iOS device, or if you’d rather do it via a PC or Mac, you can stop your subscription from renewing automatically using iTunes. We have described this process in detail and all you need to do is follow the steps in our article.

    If you are still on the fence about which music streaming service to use in India, we’ve compared them all to help you make the choice. Apple Music remains one of the best streaming services for international music, but if Indian music is a big part of your playlist then you might want to consider other alternatives.

    Did you cancel your Apple Music subscription or do you like it enough to pay for it? Let us know via the comments. For more tutorials, visit our How To section.

    How to watch iPhone 7 launch event on a PC running Windows or Mac?
    If you are on Windows, you can watch Apple’s launch event on Microsoft Edge, which is available on Windows 10. Mac users running Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X 10.8.5 or later can watch it as well. Tune in to the live stream via Safari or Edge at http://apple.co/live.

    Apple Sees Sharp Increase in US National Security Requests 

    Highlights National security related requests quadrupled for Apple in the first half Apple said it had received 13,250 – 13,499 national security requests Google said it had received between 0 and 499 National Security Letters

    Apple Inc has received more than four times as many national-security related requests from the US government in the first half of this year versus a year ago, according to a company report on Thursday.

    Apple said it had received between 13,250 and 13,499 national security requests affecting between 9,000 and 9,249 users. That compares with a range of 2,750 and 2,999 requests affecting between 2,000 and 2,249 users in the first half of 2016.

    The requests come in the form of so-called National Security Letters, or NSLs, and requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA. Apple and other companies report ranges because government rules prevent disclosing precise numbers.

    Apple declined to comment beyond the figures it released.

    The disclosures are voluntary, and firms like Microsoft Corp and Facebook Inc have yet to report any figures for 2017. In the past, those companies have issued more detailed reports, for example separating FISA requests and NSLs. The government requires they wait six months to report that level of information.

    Alphabet Inc’s Google said it had received between 0 and 499 National Security Letters requesting information on between 1,000 and 1,499 user accounts in the first half of 2017. A year previously, the number of requests was the same but the government asked about only 500 to 999 accounts, according to Google’s transparency report. Its 2017 FISA request numbers were not yet available.

    It was not immediately clear what drove the increase in requests to Apple. But Andrew Crocker, a staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said that the number of government requests to technology companies has been increasing since 2014, when data first started to become available as part of a settlement between technology firms and the government.

    “There’s not a huge track record here, but you can start to make a simple graph. The trend does seem to be upward,” Crocker said.

    Crocker also said the higher requests to Apple could represent it coming in line with its peers. Despite Apple’s huge user base – it has sold more than 1.2 billion iPhones – the number of requests to it had been relatively low compared with firms like Google or Microsoft.

    National security letters are a type of government subpoena for communications data sent to service providers. They are usually issued with a gag order, meaning the target is often unaware that records are being accessed, and they do not require a warrant.

    Apple Unveils New Emoji Due to Arrive With iOS 11.1 

    Highlights The new emoji will debut next week with the iOS 11.1 beta The emojis Apple is introducing are part of Unicode 10 The emojis will be made available for macOS and watchOS later

    Apple on Friday revealed the new emoji that will be making their way to iOS 11.1. While there is no fixed release date for iOS 11.1 yet, Apple says the new emoji will debut in next week’s developer and public beta previews of iOS 11.1, and then be available in upcoming software updates for iOS, macOS and watchOS.

    Based on Unicode 10, the new emoji characters number in the hundreds, Apple said in an emailed statement. Emojipedia, the go to source for all your emoji information, however has a more specific number – 239, when taking into account gender and skin tone. It adds however, that the final list has yet to be confirmed, so that number may vary slightly upon release.

    The new emojis that Apple is set to release with iOS 11.1 include “more emotive smiley faces, gender-neutral characters, clothing options, food types, animals, mythical creatures, and more”, the company said, adding that the emoji have been designed to “reveal every detail and adapted from approved characters in Unicode 10.”

    Examples of the new emojis that will be launched with iOS 11.1 include Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Breastfeeding, Zombie, Person Climbing, Person in Steamy Room, Genie, Elf, Merperson, Vampire, Fairy, Mage, Child, Adult, Palms Up Together, Person in Lotus Position, as well as new food items such as Sandwich and Coconut. Emojipedia has a complete list. Apple has also decided to include the ‘Love You’ gesture, designed after the ‘I love you’ hand sign in American Sign Language.

    Apple’s announcement comes a few days after WhatsApp introduced its own set of emojis. Visible in the WhatsApp beta for Android, the emoji designs chosen by the Facebook-owned messaging service look very similar to those Apple has been using recently, and quite separate from what Facebook Messenger offers.

    Apple Releases iTunes 12.6.3 to Bring Back App Store, Ringtones Removed With Version 12.7 

    Highlights Apple has quietly released a new version of iTunes iTunes 12.6.3 brings back some of the old features Apple released iTunes 12.7 which removed some of these features

    Apple has quietly made available a new version of iTunes that brings back many of the features it recently pulled from the service. iTunes v12.6.3, the version with access to the older features, is now available for Mac and Windows desktop platforms.

    Last month, Apple released iTunes 12.7, a revamped version of the service that was didn’t include some of the old iTunes features such as the ability to browse, sync, and install iOS apps and ringtones using the desktop. The move was followed by some outcry from users, who were not happy with the change.

    As users spotted on Reddit on Monday, it turns out Apple has quietly released another version of iTunes with the older features. The company says it is released this version because “certain business partners might still need to use iTunes to install apps.” Users report that this version of iTunes is working on individual computers just as fine.

    “If you’ve already installed a newer version of iTunes, you can download this version of iTunes on your Mac, PC 32-bit or PC 64-bit and run the installer. After installation is complete, you can continue to deploy apps with iTunes. You won’t be prompted to download new versions of iTunes after you install this version,” the description of iTunes 12.6.3 reads.

    As Apple mentions in a support article, users will be required to rebuild their iTunes library once they have installed iTunes 12.6.3 version. You can easily do so by holding down the Option key when the app launches and clicking the “Create Library” option in the dialogue window that prompts. Give this new library a different name than your existing library, and you should be able to swiftly migrate your library once you have installed the new version.

    Apple, Dell Join Bid to Buy Toshiba’s Chip Business: Bain 

    Highlights Apple and Dell have joined a bid to buy Toshiba’s memory chip business Last week Bain Capital made a “revised offer” for Toshiba’s chip unit Toshiba earlier sued Western Digital for trying to block sales process

    US tech titans Apple and Dell have joined a bid to buy Toshiba’s memory chip business, a deal seen as key to the survival of the cash-stripped Japanese industrial conglomerate, the US investor leading the consortium has said.

    “Last week Bain Capital made a revised offer” for Toshiba, which “brings in a broad list of strategic partners including Apple, Dell” and others who will invest in the business, Bain Capital said in a statement obtained by AFP on Sunday.

    It was the first time Apple’s name has been officially confirmed as part of the bid, although it has reportedly also been involved in rival bids for the lucrative Toshiba segment.

    The announcement came after Toshiba said last week it had picked the Bain Capital-led consortium as the leading candidate to buy its prized chip business in a deal reportedly worth some $18 billion.

    The development was the latest twist in a long-running saga as Toshiba agonises between three groups of suitors for its chip business.

    The Bain Capital-led group also includes the state-backed Development Bank of Japan and the public-private Innovation Network Corp. of Japan as well as South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix.

    However, Toshiba has stressed that it was a “non-exclusive” agreement with Bain Capital that “does not exclude the possibility of negotiations with other consortia”.

    Other suitors in the frame are a group led by Western Digital, Toshiba’s US-based chip factory partner, and Taiwan’s Hon Hai Precision, better known as Foxconn.

    Western Digital demanded control of the memory chip business, frustrating Toshiba’s management which prompted them to turn to the Bain Capital-led group, according to reports in the local media.

    Toshiba has sued Western Digital for trying to block the sales process.

    In the latest statement, Bain Capital said: “We believe this proposal represents a solution that meets the needs of all stakeholders.”

    The proposal “represents the best possible outcome for Toshiba by ensuring” the memory chip business’s independence, Bain Capital said.
