When Apple announced the iPad Pro earlier this week, the company gave it a significant internal upgrade with an M1 Apple Silicon processor, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 2TB of internal storage. The M1 is already used in devices like the Mac mini, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and even the all-new iMac. It is a potent processor offering performance comparable to recent mobile processors from Intel and AMD while drawing comparatively little power. The iPad Pro's hardware is quite capable of running macOS, so many people wonder why Apple isn't giving users the option of installing its Mac-centric operating system. "On the one hand, people say that they are in conflict with each other. That somebody has to... Read more...
It looks as though Adobe is in hot water over its latest Lightroom update for iOS and iPadOS. Adobe has widely embraced Apple's mobile platforms, especially with regards to iPadOS given that many people like to use the incredibly powerful iPad Pro to manage and edit photos on-the-go. The latest Lightroom 5.4 update, however, featured a destructive bug that has caused some customers to lose not only their app presets, but also their photos. Mohamad Alif Eqnur wrote on the Lightroom Mobile support community about his issues, stating, "After I updated the apps on Apps Store, all of my pictures and presets gone. I really need this to be fix as soon as possible. Please help me as I really... Read more...
Apple today is kicking off its 31st Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), in which the company will give a state of union on its various software platforms (iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS), host over 100 engineering sessions, and presumably will make some exciting announcements. Ahead of the event, a string of leaks has given us idea of what to expect. New Features For iOS 14 The platform news that is probably of the most interest out of the bunch pertains to iOS 14. According to leaks, iOS 14 will not be getting a name change to iPhoneOS 14. However, iOS 14 is expected to sport a redesigned homepage, and support for widgets. in my dream no rename for IOS, homepage redesigned。widgets... Read more...
Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is still a few months away – and it will be in an online-only format for the first time ever – but that isn’t stopping a steady drip of information from coming out early on iOS 14. iOS 14 is the next iteration of the operating system that powers iPhones and iPads (iPadOS 14).  Leading the charge on these leaks has been 9to5Mac, which somehow received an internal build of iOS 14 and has been digging through its code to pick out new features. The latest nugget that the publication has unearthed is called Clips, and it reportedly “allows developers to offer interactive and dynamic content from their apps even if... Read more...
When Apple introduced the first iPhone way back in 2007, it was a device that was very much married to a PC or Mac. You needed a computer to activate the device, perform OS updates, install music, transfer contacts, etc. However, over the years, the iPhone has grown so independent that it doesn't need a computer for much of anything at all. Well, unless you need to restore the firmware of your device in the case of a system failure, or if you want to rid yourself of beta software and get back on a "production" iOS track. Fortunately, the code sleuths over at 9to5Mac have uncovered evidence that Apple is working on over-the-air (OTA) mechanism for restoring iOS/iPadOS software/device... Read more...
Today is a big day for those that are firmly entrenched in Apple's walled garden. The company has just released iOS 13, which is the latest iteration in its long-running series of mobile operating systems for its iPhone (and to a lesser extent, the iPod touch).  A systemwide Dark Mode is now available on command, or can be invoked automatically based on the time of day in iOS 13. All of Apple's native apps support Dark Mode, and chances are if your favorite app hasn't already been updated to support the feature, it will be soon. Maps has been rebuilt (again), and includes new higher resolution imagery that will be rolled out across the entire United States by the end of 2019. Also includes... Read more...
One of the drawbacks to using Siri on iPad and iPhone devices is that the digital assistant dominates the display when invoking the AI feature. It does not work that way on Mac systems—Siri appears in a smaller window so that you can see everything else on the screen. Well, with the introduction of iPadOS, Apple could port the same functionality over to its iPad lineup, it was so inclined. Not only is having Siri appear in a smaller window more convenient, it is also more functional, as it allows users to drag and drop items. As of this moment, though, Siri only appears and functions that way in macOS. However, Apple's VP of software engineering, Craig Federighi, hinted that such a change... 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...
