iPhone 6s Plus: Living with Live Photos

Live Photos aren’t perfect. The video shot in a Live Photo is a mediocre 12 frames per second compared to the 30fps iPhones generally capture. Low-light photos are noticeably less vibrant when Live Photos are enabled. Shoot a Live Photo in the wrong orientation then rotate it, and you revert back to a standard photo. Sharing Live Photos is […]

Mini-review: Cloopband, the somewhat pricey but very convenient magnetic cable ties

As regular readers will know, I think wires are evil. To the extent that they are unavoidable, they should be invisible. And if they can’t be invisible, they should at least be neat. I’ve also found you can never predict when you’re going to need a cable, so I keep one of each of the […]

Steve Jobs movie “deviates from reality everywhere” but “exposes deeper truths” – Andy Hertzfeld

Andy Hertzfeld, one of the key designers of the original Macintosh system software, has told Re/code that the Sorkins/Boyle movie Steve Jobs “deviates from reality everywhere” but “exposes deeper truths” about the man. It deviates from reality everywhere — almost nothing in it is like it really happened — but ultimately that doesn’t matter that much. The purpose of […]

Some iPhone 6s/Plus users are reporting a display glitch in Wallet and some other apps, where they get a permanently zoomed-in view after restoring from an iPhone 5/5S/5C.

Apple reportedly wants ‘AirPods’ trademark using shell company, suggesting Apple-branded wireless earbuds

Even in the age of the Apple Watch which only plays music over Bluetooth, Apple has yet to produce any Apple-branded wireless headphones or earbuds, instead promoting Beats-branded earbud and headphone designs created before Apple’s $3 billion acquisition of that company last year. A new report from MacRumors suggests that could soon change, however, as it’s believed […]

Opinion: Is iOS’s Home screen heading towards text-free 3D icons?

Is Apple considering another round of major changes to iOS’s Home screen? If watchOS and tvOS are any indication, the answer could be “yes.” Earlier this year, Apple launched the Apple Watch with a purely text-free Home screen, requiring users to identify 20-some initial apps (and manually-added third-party apps) by icon designs alone. This month, it will release […]

HBO Now updated with iOS 9’s picture-in-picture iPad feature

One of iOS 9’s most useful features on modern iPads is the ability to playback videos from the Home screen or other apps using picture-in-picture. Video services have to opt-in to supporting PIP, though, so it means App Store apps must be updated before the feature works. HBO has done just that with their iOS […]
