Apple Releases New Apple TV

Apple has officially released its 4th-generation Apple TV with the first deliveries expected to hit consumers on October 30th. The new model comes with two variations, a 32GB version for $149 and a 64GB version for $199. In addition to that, Apple is also offering free shipping for delivery between November 2nd and November 4th. More unusual is the fact that next-day shipping is $17 though the delivery windows is still October 30th to November 3rd so that extra $17 doesn’t really save you a whole lot of time it seems.

Like most new iterations of Apple products, the 4th-generation Apple TV doesn’t look too different from the 3rd-generation model. The same hockey puck shape is still around though this new Apple TV does come with a ton of new features. The biggest change to come is support for tvOS apps that are specifically designed for Apple TV. HBO, Showtime, Netflix, Hulu, the MLB, the NBA, and the NHL will all have tvOS apps ready on launch, provided you have a subscription to these services.

In addition to that, you will also be able to play games directly from the set-top box, though it is still unclear as to what these will look like. It isn’t really possible for developers to simply port iOS apps to Apple TV. They have to design them specifically for the Apple TV. This means that for apps such as games the developer will have to write completely new code, just as if they were writing something for Android or Windows 10. This means that it may take a while for some of your favorite apps and games to show up on your Apple TV.

The new Apple TV also comes with a new remote that has Siri integrated into it for voice commands. If you want, you can also buy a wrist-loop for your Apple TV remote for $13 if you want to use it as a game controller. However, you better not lose that remote or you’ll be forking over $79 for a new one. Only one Siri remote is capable of being programmed to an Apple TV, so you won’t be going out and buying multiple remotes in an attempt to play multiplayer games. You will, though, be able to use multiple iOS devices or MFi game controllers with the Apple TV, which will allow other people to join into whatever you are playing.

Apple’s latest Apple TV is currently on sale in 80 countries, though the Siri remote only supports voice commands for 12 of those countries. You can get yours now today from Apple’s online store.

iOS 9 Reportedly Causing Data Connectivity Issues

Posted by Zack | Posted in Apple News, Consumer Electronics | Posted on 09-10-2015

Have you been on the iOS community forums lately? If you have then you’ve probably noticed them being overwhelmed with posts from iPhone and iPad users complaining about a major bug in iOS 9’s cellular data. This bug, according to forum posts, leads to internet connectivity issues, mobile data connection problems, and internal configuration issues that include cellular data toggle being entirely grayed out. In addition to that, other users have also reported that some apps are unable to access the internet through their cellular data.

If you are having some or all of these problems and you are thinking about troubleshooting it yourself, then you need to ensure that your device is running the latest version of iOS, which is iOS 9.0.2, as this version brings a lot of bug fixes that includes one for the cellular data connectivity issue. If you want to check to see which iOS versions you have then go to General, then Settings, and then Software Update on your iOS device. On the other hand, you can update your device to the latest iOS through iTunes by connecting your iPhone or iPad to your computer and the selecting Download and Install Update whenever the prompt appears on the screen.

Resetting your network settings is one of the easiest ways to resolve a lot of the common internet and cellular data connectivity issues. To do this, open Settings, go to General, and select Reset. Once you hit Reset Network Settings, a message will ask you to enter your passcode for resetting the device. Enter the code and confirm to erase all custom network settings for that device. Once the settings are reset, the device will boot to the Home Screen. From here, restart the device by powering it off and the on again. Once you’re rebooted back to the Home Screen, enable the cellular or 3G/LTE data option to verify that your device can establish a connection.

If this doesn’t help then try updating your device with the latest update from your carrier. To do this, launch Settings, select General, and hit the About button. Wait for your device to connect to the update server. If the internet connection is working, then the update should clearly appear on your device’s screen along with the prompt, “Carrier Settings Update: New Settings Are Available. Would you like to update them now?” Tap on the update button to start the download and installation process. Wait until everything is finished and the network will reset to refresh your device with the updated settings.

If neither of these options work then your last option is to do a full factory reset. Make sure you backup your data and settings via iTunes before doing this, otherwise you’ll lose everything. To do a factory reset, launch iTunes on your computer and connect your device. Right click on the phone icon in iTunes and select Back Up from the menu. When prompted, create an encrypted backup as this stores all of your passwords and health data. Once everything is backed up reset your device to the factory defaults. To do this, go to Settings, then General, then Reset, then Reset All Content And Settings. This process could take anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes and will wipe any and all data from your device. Doing this will have your device looking brand new. Once you’ve booted back up, connect to iTunes and select Restore from Backup to restore the latest backup files. Go back into Settings and turn on cellular data or mobile data and check your connectivity. If they are, great, if not then you may have to take your device to an Apple Store and have them fix it.

Give these methods a shot if you are experiencing the same problems some very unhappy users on the iOS community forums are. Let us know in the comments which method worked for you and what kind of problems you were experiencing!

Apple Patents Idea That Could Change The Way We Use iPhones Forever

Posted by Zack | Posted in Apple News, Consumer Electronics | Posted on 05-10-2015

Tags: , , ,

Ever since the very first iPhone launched Apple has made design changes with each new model. Some of the changes have been minor and others, like replacing the all-glass back with an all-aluminum design, have been more significant. However, the basic form factor has always stayed the same. But I bet you didn’t know that Apple had an idea that would dramatically change the way you used your iPhone. Apple was recently granted a patent for an iPhone design that has the screen curve all the way around the phone, and it looks pretty wild.

Apple's New Wrap-Around Screen Patent

The patent was published on September 29th and is a continuation of various patents that Apple has filed in the past. It really isn’t a new idea, but it is still very interesting and leads speculation that Apple is still toying with ideas like these. In the patent, Apple says that the design could change the way we use our iPhones. If you iPhone’s screen was extended, you wouldn’t be limited to interacting with the device’s screen only on the front of the phone.

Apple also noted that other aspects of the device that would be found along the side. These included a mute switch, power, and volume buttons. However, these would not be able to be used with apps since they are only programmed to perform a single task. The new design that Apple is proposing in the patent would change all of this. Here’s what Apple had to say about the whole thing.

Looking for a Quote on an iPad Rental for your Business Event? Rentacomputer.com has Nationwide Apple iPad Rentals that are perfect for your short-term business event.

“Unfortunately, this popular form factor, leaves the sides and rear surfaces of the device unused or at best configured with buttons and switches with fixed location and functionality. Since many of these buttons and switches have fixed functionality, they cannot always be incorporated into third party applications. Therefore, there exists a need for an improved form factor for portable electronic devices, which allows functionality to extend to more than one surface of the device.”

This doesn’t mean that we should expect to see something like this anytime soon. Apple patents different technologies and products all the time, and not necessarily because it has any plans of bringing these ideas to the table. Patents simply give users an idea of what to expect from Apple and what the company may be experimenting with. In addition to that, patents also keep Apple’s competition from utilizing certain technologies, giving Apple a one-up.

So what do you think? Would you be interested in an iPhone that has a screen that wraps all the way around your device? I, for one, think it’s a neat idea but not one that I think I would particularly enjoy using. But don’t let me spoil it for you; I’m still waiting on my Star Wars-esque holo-projector…..

Apple Sells 13 Million iPhone 6S Devices In First Weekend

Posted by admin | Posted in Apple News, Consumer Electronics, New Products | Posted on 28-09-2015

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Apple has officially released its newest smartphones, the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Even though the devices have only been on the market for less than a week, they have already posted some very impressive sales numbers. According to a recent sales report from Apple, the company has sold over 13 million new devices over the weekend, which is a new record for the iPhone.

According to Apple CEO Tim Cook’s press statement, “Sales for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first-weekend sales results in Apple’s history. Customers’ feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can’t wait to bring the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus to customers in even more countries on October 9th.”

So what’s the reason for such high sales numbers? Probably the fact that Apple included China in its opening weekend sales. China passed over Europe to become Apple’s second biggest market earlier in the year, with sales growing three times faster than in North and South America. To compare, Apple sold 10 million units of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in its opening weekend last year and 9 million units of the iPhone 5S and 5C the year before that. In both cases, the launch of the smartphones in China was delayed.

So what’s new with the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus? Well for starters, these new smartphones come preloaded with Apple’s latest iOS 9 operating system. In addition to that, the new phones come with the new A9 chip with 64-bit architecture and M9 motion coprocessor. There’s 2GB of RAM as well as a 12MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. 4K resolution is also supported at 30fps along with 4.2 Bluetooth.

Granted the changes aren’t astounding, but they are decent. Are they enough for people to upgrade from the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus to the iPhone 6S or 6S Plus? Probably not. But they are good enough to get people to go from an iPhone 5 model (or earlier) and, maybe, good enough for some people to make the jump from an Android device to an Apple.

Apple’s New iPad Pro Will Be Expensive

Apple officially announced its newest iPad model, the iPad Pro, along with the new iPhone 6S at the company’s event. Even though the focus of Apple’s event was on Apple TV and the iPhone 6S, the iPad Pro wasn’t left in the corner. iPad sales have been on a bit of a downward slope as of late, but that hasn’t dampened Apple’s commitment to the tablet. The event saw the release of not only the iPad Pro but also the iPad Mini 4, giving users two new iPad devices to choose from in the coming months.

The iPad Pro is a massive tablet that comes with a 12.9″ display and comes with a lot of new features. The base model iPad Pro will come with 64GB of storage and will also feature LTE support options and come in three different colors: gold, silver and space gray. However, getting your hands on one of these devices won’t be cheap. In fact, a fully decked out iPad Pro could cost you as much as a MacBook, so roughly $1,200.

What was a really interesting move for Apple was the fact that the company will not be bundling a touch stylus or keyboard with this device. Apple has apparently decided not to give users the new Force Touch-integrated iPad stylus or keyboard with the new iPad Pro. These accessories will, however, be sold separately. Apple has supposedly developed two versions of an iPad Pro keyboard attachment. One version doubles as a case and the other is more similar to the Apple Wireless Keyboard that is has sold for previous Macs and iPads.

One of the coolest new features is the fact that the screen is so massive that it will be able to run two full-screen apps simultaneously and that these apps will be able to run in portrait mode side-by-side. This is a pretty awesome feature as it allows the multitaskers in all of us to push our skills to the max. You could have the news up on one app while watching your favorite sports team on the other, or Facetime your mom while looking at pictures of her vacation on Facebook.

Apple is hoping for a November release date for the iPad Pro, but that might be a bit optimistic. Apple has reportedly encountered some minor production issues (as is typical with Apple) which have caused them to push back the release of the device. Many users won’t be surprised about this as Apple has made a reputation for not releasing things on time. Like I said, Apple is hoping to get the iPad Pro out by November, though I imagine it will be hard for the company to get the device ready for a pre-holiday shopping season launch.

Apple Has Officially Announced Its Next iPhone Event

Apple has finally released its next upcoming iPhone event, which will be on September 9, 2015. Apple has been pretty quiet about what its latest announcement will be about, but there are already some hints about it.

For home viewers, now’s the time to pay attention! Windows users can now livestream the press conference, which is new for Apple. Unfortunately, viewers using Windows PCs can only use Microsoft’s new Edge browser to watch the event. Apple is limiting users using Google’s Chrome browser because of the lack of support for Apple’s preferred HTTP Live Streaming HLS format.

Also during the event, Apple will be announcing two new iPhone 6 models. There won’t be a 4-inch “iPhone 6c,” like there has been rumored. Supposedly 9to5mac’s Mark Gurman says Apple is retiring the smaller iPhone c product line due to an “aging feature set.” On the bright side, according the site, Apple is working on developing a new 40-inch phone product, but it won’t be released this year. If you’re interested in watching the iPhone event, then your best bet is using Microsoft’s Edge browser.

Stay tuned here for all the news and info coming out of the event as we will report on it when it drops!

Are you looking to get the new Apple iOS9 on your iPad a bit early? Of course you are. Updates area usually always a good thing. They help make programs run smoother. If you know anything about Apple, however, you should be familiar with the fact that they normally keep their updates to themselves until THEY feel it’s ready. Wouldn’t you know it though, they’ve decided to switch things up a bit. Now, they are letting the consumers try out the new beta for themselves to see how they like it. Not a bad idea Apple.

Finally, Apple will get on board with the side-by-side multitasking. This features has been seen on Samsung devices for a while now, so it’s good that Apple is finally catching up with these features. Also, in case you were wondering, any device that you have running iOS8 can be updated to iOS9.

Step-By-Step Guide

When it comes to these types of OS beta tests, the first and most obvious thing you’re going to want to take care of is backing up your device. Since these are beta tests, they can definitely be unpredictable. Versions like this can potentially wipe your device clean, without any intention at all.

Once you’ve backed up your device onto iTunes or your iCloud, you’re going to want to go to https://beta.apple.com/profile/ on your iPad to download a profile. This will allow your tablet to enroll in the beta program. After your profile is set up and installed, restart your tablet.

When your tablet is back up and running again, go to your Settings, hit General, then Software Update, and you should see the iOS9 Public Beta option. While your device remains in the beta program, you’ll be able to see from the Settings app, which other betas are available, including the latest beta for iOS8.4

Once it’s all set up, sit back, and enjoy the new features this update brings in the beta testing process. You’ll be responsible for the rest of us getting the best version of iOS9 possible. Don’t mess this up guys! No pressure though.

Apple Seeks Total Dominance Over Your Entire Life

Apple is trying very hard to sneak its way into your entire life. On Monday, the company released its new updates on the software that iPhones, iPads, Macs and Apple Watches run on. It also revealed the iOS 9 and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan during the conference. A major plus with Apple’s operating system is how well it has its devices work together.

The Apple company’s message is pretty much becoming reality, “It’s Apple’s world, you’re just living in it.” Last year, the iPhone and Mac computer were shown working hand-in-hand, allowing you to start emails or phone calls on either your smartphone or computer and having the option of switching to the other one. As of this year, Apple has branched off into our cars and homes and even how we buy things and listen to music.

The only thing holding you back from allowing Apple to run your life could possibly be finances. The only way to have all your Apple devices work properly would be to completely commit to the Apple ecosystem. Not only do you need an iPhone or MacBook, but you also need to upgrade all your household appliances to smart-home products, so they can work off the HomeKit software. This also means buying a whole new car, a CarPlay-compatible car to be exact, as well as buying the Apple Music streaming service. We’re talking about a LOT of money going into ALL new products!

One of the biggest highlights of Monday’s conference was Apple announcing a whole new music service called Apple Music. This is a $10 a month subscription streaming service, kind of like Spotify. Apple is making an app for Apple Music for Android devices too, which is a huge step for the company. It’ll be the first time ever that Apple releases an app for another smartphone!

Apple also announced two other softwares that would be open sourced. Its ResearchKit software is designed to help build apps and collect data for patients in an easier way for medical professionals. Swift is a coding language used to help make apps for Mac and iOS.

All in all, Apple is pretty much trying to say that its products will work better if you buy all the other appliances that go with it. Although Apple is making an app for their Apple Music on Androids, it still is going to run better on iPhones and iPads, especially with all the features that will be available with it. Apple is even upgrading Siri to know you on a more personal level, such as specific times of the day you’d like to work out and even what kind of music you mostly listen to. So be prepared for the next time you plan to work out and plug your headphones in and Siri will already be playing your type of music for your workout. Just don’t expect to get the same results with Apple Music using the Google Now voice assistant.

Apple isn’t only focused on music, it’s also trying to focus on making a commonly better home experience with its HomeKit software. They’re trying to get their products capability better by connecting with household products like window blinds or light bulbs. The company also said that the iOS 9 software’s CarPlay element will be able to tap into your vehicle’s data. Meaning, you won’t have to plug in your iPhone to your car with a Lightning connector, it’ll be able to just connect on its own.

Last, but certainly not least, Apple is also launching another app for Android called “Move to iOS.” It is an app to help convince Android smartphone users to switch over to iPhones. Apparently Apple just won’t take NO for an answer, “Just download the Move to iOS app to wirelessly switch from your Android device to your new iOS device.” This app will come out with iOS 9 later on this year. Just prepare yourself on seeing Apple trying to be a part of everything and anything.

iOS 9: Everything You Need To Know

9There are going to be a lot of awesome things that come along with iOS 9. Siri is getting a lot of huge improvements, there is a new split screen feature that allows you to run several different apps at the same time, better battery life, and a new Low Power mode are all things we have to look forward to.

A lot of people out there are wondering when they will be able to get their hands on iOS 9, or if their devices will even be compatible. Every year there is a new list of devices that aren’t able to get the new update. Some people are also scared that they might have to delete a ton of stuff to even be able to download the new operating system like many did when iOS 8 came out. That was a catastrophe. Well, if you have any of this on your mind, we have the answers. So don’t worry.

iPad Rentals from Rentacomputer.com

iOS 9 release date
Apple is going about this release a little bit differently than in the past. Now there will not only be a Developer Beta, but there will also be a public beta that you can get before the official release. Even though that is super cool, and it would be awesome to get a crack at it before everyone else, you should keep in mind that the OS will be unstable until the official release. So think for a bit before you commit.

Here is the release schedule:

Developer Beta: Available now
Public Beta: Available in early July
Official release of iOS 9: September

Will my device get iOS 9?
Like I said earlier, every year there is a list of devices that don’t make the cut and don’t get to have the new operating system. This makes sense though. Outdated devices sometimes have a lot of trouble running new features and codes that they weren’t designed for, and creating a stripped down version of the operating system wouldn’t make any sense because of how many key features would be left out. BUT, you should be glad to know that this year’s list is exactly the same as it was when iOS 8 came out. If you got the update then, you’ll get it this time around as well.

Space requirements
Ah, the moment you have all been waiting for. With iOS 8, lots of people had to tragically delete almost everything on their device to fit it. And then, didn’t have much storage space to do anything else with. The update last year was 4.6GB, which is ridiculous. This year, you will be pleased to know that iOS 9 will only take up 1.3GB of space. That is 350% less. So we all have that to be happy about.

This video came out today on Apple’s YouTube page. After it was up for only two hours, it already had 20,000 views and currently has almost 80,000. The main point to the video is to show off that they are using clean energy. They are building a 40-megawatt solar farm in China that will power all of their offices across the country, all of their offices are powered with clean energy already, and they are generating 12 million kilowatt hours of energy in Oregon using hydropower.

This is one of the most genius marketing tactics for Apple. It may not seem that significant, but there is a lot to this whole idea. Across many different developing countries, there is a huge wave of consumer consciousness that includes issues like sustainability. This is a bigger factor than ever right now. 55% of global respondents in Nielsen’s survey say that they are willing to pay more for products and services from companies that dedicate themselves to creating a positive social and environmental impact. That is an increase in 50% in 2012 and 45% in 2011. Regionally, respondents in Asia-Pacific (64%), Latin America (63%) and Middle East/Africa (63%) exceed the global average and have increased 9, 13 and 10 percentage points since 2011. So knowing that, you can see why this is such a big deal, and why the video is absolutely genius on Apple’s part. Check it out!
