Docket Featured in Launch Class of Zoom ‘Zapps’

Docket, an online collaboration platform that helps teams run better meetings, has teamed up with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) to deliver one of the first Zapps (Zoom Apps) as a part of a new integration offering.

At their annual user conference, Zoomtopia, Zoom announced a new library of apps designed to enhance the Zoom meeting experience. Dubbed ‘Zapps,’ these apps will blend other top software platforms and tools with the Zoom desktop meeting client.

“Docket empowers Zoom users to tie meetings together from preparation to follow-through,” said Wei Li, Head of Platform and AI at Zoom. “We want to bring these platforms closer together through our new Zapp to elevate the collaboration experience and bring happiness to our customers.”

The library of Zapps is a separate addition to Zoom’s App Marketplace of third-party integrations. Docket took first-place among more than 600 app marketplace integrations in Zoom’s first ‘Whale Watch’ competition earlier this year.

“We’re excited to expand our relationship with Zoom to provide new ways for teams to seamlessly collaborate end-to-end,” said Darin Brown, CEO of Docket. “Zapps are a natural extension of our mission to improve the way people meet, and we look forward to taking advantage of this emerging technology.”

Docket’s meeting intelligence platform enhances business meeting transparency and alignment end-to-end with shared agenda creation, stored meeting history and action item tracking. The company launched out of High Alpha’s venture studio in Indianapolis. Before co-founding Docket, Brown served as the CTO of Angie’s List and Vice President at Salesforce and ExactTarget.

Docket plans to build a Zapp that brings important meeting resources into Zoom’s desktop meeting client. Users will be able to build and share a meeting agenda, take notes with meeting guests, assign tasks for follow-up and save attachments and resources without leaving the Zoom

Apple Pay Landing Page Goes Live on Apple’s Mexico Website, Suggesting Imminent Launch

Apple added an Apple Pay landing page to its regional Mexico website late on Tuesday, indicating the mobile payment system could launch in the country imminently.


Way back in March there were suggestions that Apple Pay could be coming to Mexico, after reports that some iPhone users in the country had been able to add their Banregio cards to the Wallet app, with only the verification process failing.

Cards from banks other than Banregio were not able to be added to the Wallet app on the ‌‌iPhone‌‌, suggesting ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ in Mexico could be limited to Banregio at launch.

That’s still uncertain, since the ‌Apple Pay‌ page on Apple’s Mexican website offers no launch date and doesn’t list any banks that will integrate with the service. All it says is ‌Apple Pay‌ will be compatible with “credit and debit cards of the most important payment networks, issued by various banks,” which sounds a lot like Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

When ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ launches in Mexico, it will be the second country in Latin America to support the payments service. Apple launched ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ in Brazil in 2018, but has not expanded it to other Latin America countries. ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ has also been available in the United States and Canada for years.

Apple maintains a complete list of the countries where ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ is available on its support site, and we have a detailed Apple Pay roundup with everything you need to know about Apple’s payments service.

(Thanks, Luis!)

Apple iPhone 12 to launch without wired earbuds, wall charger in box

  • Apple’s iPhone 12 will not come with wired headphones in the box, nor will it come with a wall charger.
  • It will come with a USB C to Lightning cable, however.
  • The company made the announcement when unveiling its iPhone 12 lineup on Tuesday, and attributed the removal to environmental concerns.
  • The omission comes as Apple’s wireless AirPods have exploded in popularity in recent years, and the company moves to make its packaging more sustainable.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Apple will no longer include its wired EarPod headphones in the box with its new iPhones, starting with the iPhone 12.

The company is also removing the wall charger from the iPhone’s box. Apple will include a USB-C to Lightning cable, however, which can be plugged into a computer or adapter for charging.

Apple executive Lisa Jackson announced the change Tuesday afternoon after announcing its new smartphone lineup. “It’s like removing 450,000 cars from the road per year,” she said.

The move will allow Apple to create smaller, more sustainable iPhone packaging.

It’s a major change from Apple’s history of including wired headphones with its wireless devices, going back to the iPod and continuing through to 2019’s iPhone 11. Even when Apple dropped the headphone jack from its flagship phones in 2016, the company continued including a version of its wired EarPods in the box with a lightning plug.

Those headphones won’t come in the box with this year’s iPhone, nor will a wall charger.

The move comes as Apple’s AirPods wireless earbuds have grown in popularity, becoming an increasingly critical part of the company’s product lineup. Apple’s wearables, home, and accessories category, which includes AirPods and other products like the Apple Watch, has become a highlight in Apple’s earnings reports during quarters in which iPhone sales have

Apple fans spot blurry image of iPhone 12 on official website hours before launch

After months of anticipation, Apple will finally reveal its iPhone 12 series this evening.

The tech giant is hosting an event at 18:00 BST this evening, where it’s expected to launch four new iPhones, rumoured to be called the iPhone 12 Mini, the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

But just hours before the launch, an eagle-eyed fan has spotted what they believe are blurry images of the iPhone 12 on Apple’s official iCloud website.

Four new icons have been added to the iCloud website, labelled iPhone13,1, iPhone13,2, iPhone13,3, and the iPhone13,4.

For reference, last year’s iPhone 11 was labelled on the iCloud website as ‘iPhone12,1’.

Twitter user @AppleSWUpdates said: “Have you ever noticed those images in the iCloud or the Apple ID website?

“Apple has uploaded 4 images for the iPhone13,1 13,2 13,3 and 13,4. No … iPhone uses those identifiers.”

Unfortunately, it remains unclear how @AppleSWUpdates found the icons, although it’s likely they were hidden in the code of Apple’s website.

Thankfully, there’s not long to find out what Apple has in store for us.

Its ‘Hi, Speed’ event will begin at 18:00 tonight, where Apple is likely to treat us to a host of new products.

Mirror Online will be covering tonight’s event live, so make sure you check in at 18:00 for all the latest Apple news!
