It appears Apple is clearing house in its Shazam media identification app, as the company in a February update removed 10 third-party SDKs from the title, leaving Microsoft's HockeyApp as the last outside integration left standing.

Rumors, speculation, wish lists and leaks are par for the iPhone/iOS course. In this note at BGR, Yoni Heisler takes us through some things we suspect about iOS 13. Included is the elimination of one of the “most annoying things about the iPhone.”
Apple’s iPhone SE disappeared from the iPhone lineup last fall, when the company introduced the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. But it keeps reappearing in Apple’s online Clearance store. It’s back again, and who knows how long inventory will last.
You can’t find the iPhone SE at the retail Apple Store, though you may be able to find one at a carrier store. If you’ve wanted one but had no luck through the methods above, now’s your chance. Since it’s on clearance, stock on these phones is limited.
Here's what's available.
Apple on Wednesday released a voluntary safety report for its self-driving car project, significant mainly for how little the company is willing to share.
AppleInsider has spent the last month testing out Canon's first full-frame mirrorless EOS R shooter to see how it stacks up in an ever-growing mirrorless market.
Beyond the Galaxy S10 and Fold, Samsung revealed multiple wearable devices on Wednesday: the Galaxy Watch Active, two Galaxy Fit trackers, and its AirPods-like Galaxy Buds.
Samsung on Wednesday debuted four different tiers of the Galaxy S10, its latest flagship smartphone and main iPhone competitor, including one with 5G connectivity.
The federal government shares its terrorist watch list with over 1,400 private companies, including hospitals and universities. The government has insisted for years it doesn’t share it with private companies, only to have lied this whole time. Why would it be a big deal? It’s relatively easy for innocent people to end up on the list.
The government’s admission comes in a class-action lawsuit filed in federal court in Alexandria by Muslims who say they regularly experience difficulties in travel, financial transactions and interactions with law enforcement because they have been wrongly added to the list. The Associated Press is the first to report on the disclosure after reviewing the case documents.
Mark Zuckerberg sat down with the Harvard Law Society as part of its Techtopia initiative. The Facebook CEO discussed a variety of issues including encryption, targeted ads, and whether his company should be considered an information fiduciary. Highlights of the fascinating discussion were written up and published by the HLS.
Zuckerberg argued that offering users different monetization models would mean offering them different data-handling models. “Are we going to let people pay to have different controls on data use than other people? And my answer to that is a hard no.” He described a forthcoming tool called “Clear History” which would allow users to clear some of the data that Facebook accumulates about them for ad targeting purposes.
The first product to debut in Samsung's Feb. 20 press event is the Galaxy Fold, its first-ever foldable smartphone, with an eye-watering price.
News reports broke Wednesday that Apple is going to allow developers to submit one app that will work across iPhone, iPad, and Mac. On 9to5Mac, Ben Lovejoy explained why, despite slow progress, he thinks the project known as Marzipan will be a big deal and encourage more apps to be built for the Mac.
There are a lot more iPhones than there are Macs, so currently many developers target iOS first, and only create Mac apps if they are convinced there’s enough demand to make that a sensible use of their time. A more efficient process will mean a lot more Mac apps, and that’s good news for consumers as well as developers.
