Video chats are awkward. The video can be of poor quality, the audio can be unreliable, and it can be odd to speak to someone when they staring at the screen instead of the camera. Apple plans to fix the last dilemma with its next major mobile device update. iOS 13 will use ARKit to fix the eye contact issues in FaceTime. This new feature was discovered by Mike Rundle and quickly posted to Twitter. He noted that the third developer beta for iOS 13 includes a feature called “FaceTime Attention Correction”. This feature will use augmented reality to make it seem like you are looking into the camera while you FaceTime. How is the feat being achieved? With ARKit, Apple is able to map... Read more...
Earlier this month, Apple announced the latest revisions of its entire family of operating systems including iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, watchOS and macOS. While all of latest beta versions of those operating systems are currently available to developers, today marks the first time that Apple is releasing public betas. However, the public betas are now available for iOS 13, iPadOS 13 and macOS 10.15 Catalina. iOS 13 is likely to be the most popular software package to be downloaded by Apple users, with the headlining feature being the arrival of a system-wide Dark Mode. The new dark mode greatly complements the OLED displays found on iPhone X/iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, and should be easier... Read more...
It has been a tough year for cryptocurrency mining, following what had been a banner year in which several digital currencies skyrocketed in value, before plummeting (and in some cases, disappearing altogether). Is the ride over? For some, yes. But not for everyone, and Apple is introducing a feature in iOS 13 that could give the cryptocurrency market a kick in the pants. Maybe. It's called CryptoKit, and we will know more about it later today when Apple discusses it at WWDC. In the meantime, there are some details that we already know. In the early going, Apple describes CryptoKit as a new Swift framework that is supposed to make it easier and safer to perform cryptographic operations. That... Read more...
Apple has announced iOS 13 as the latest in a long line of operating systems for its mobile devices. Not surprisingly, the company hopped right into the new features available, including the revelation that Face ID unlocking is now 30 percent faster. App downloads will be up to 50 percent smaller, and app updates will be up 60 percent smaller. This also translates into faster app speeds, which are now up to twice as fast according to Apple's software chief Craig Federighi. As expected, Apple has delivered Dark Mode with iOS 13, which is displayed throughout the user interface. All of Apple's built-in apps -- including News, Messages, Notes, Photos, etc. -- have been updated to natively support... Read more...
Are you rocking an older iPhone model? If so, there is a chance that Apple will cut off support for your handset when it releases iOS 13, which is expected to debut next month. Nothing is set in stone at this moment, or more precisely, this information has not been confirmed. But if the latest rumor is true, iPhone 6 and older generation handsets will be left in the dust. That is the word from a French-language website that covers Apple-related news. Citing a "developer friend" (Google translation), iPhonesoft.fr says iOS 13 will support every iPhone handset dating back to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, but not the regular iPhone 6 and earlier versions. That means the following devices will... Read more...
Spring is in the air, which means that we’re starting to hear more about the next version of iOS that powers iPhones and iPads. Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is scheduled to kick off on June 3rd, but a new report is already shedding some light on what we can except in iOS 13. The first addition is something that has been requested from Apple fans for a long time: a true systemwide dark mode. Apple has already introduced dark mode with macOS, so it’s only natural that the company would want to extend this feature to iOS. According to 9to5Mac, the feature won’t be enabled by default, and will instead be accessible via the Settings menu. A... Read more...
