The New iOS 8 Is Taking A Few Shots At Android And Making Us More Conn

Just in case you’ve not been on the internet at all with the past couple of days, Apple just recently had their WWDC 2014 event. Let me just be the first to say that I was quite impressed with what I saw. While there may not have been any new hardware announced (does the iWatch even exist???),...

iOS 9 Reportedly Causing Data Connectivity Issues

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 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

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 Seeks Total Dominance Over Your Entire Life

Posted by admin | Posted in Apple News, Consumer Electronics, New Products | Posted on 19-06-2015

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.

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!

Just A Few Things About iOS 8 That We Could All Do Without

Posted by mluciano | Posted in Consumer Electronics, New Products | Posted on 24-09-2014

So Apple users out there! In case you have been living under a rock for the past few days, the new iOS 8 update has finally released. Naturally, with just about any update from Apple, we can expect a menagerie of different things that we don’t like or problems that we encounter. Luckily, there haven’t been too many issues that have caused a lot of headlines. Usually after every iOS update, we can expect an X.0.1 update to fix whatever ailments are being discussed over the internet. Regarding this new update however, Apple seems to have gotten things under control more so than usual. That being said though, there are still some aspects of the new iOS 8 update that people are not necessarily enthused about.

Texting

Let just take some time to talk about the one thing that we use our phones for the most; Texting. We’ve all seen plenty of memes involving the horrors of autocorrect. There is now something else that we can worry/laugh about involving our texting habits. As if autocorrect wasn’t enough, now there’s now something called “QuickType” that we can concern ourselves with. For any Android users out there, you are more familiar with this than us Apple users. “QuickType” is essentially a feature to replace the autocorrect that we’re used to. Instead of you just hitting the “space” button in order to have your correct place, now there are a myriad of words that the texting app predicts that you could mean. All you need to do is hit that word and it will take it’s place in the text you’re righting. It’s not the worst thing, but we can expect some of the word suggestions to be annoying or funny enough that we’re all waiting for the funny Facebook pictures to surface.

The Overall Download

Whenever we Apple users have downloaded our new updates, we’ve known that they’ve been pretty huge, but this new update is a bit ridiculous. Just from the few people that I know that have downloaded this new update, I’ve heard many a horror story of deleting hundreds of pictures, different videos, and even some of their favorite apps. This new update only requires 1.2 GB of free space on your phone. That being said, then why does it require you’re phone have 5.7 GB of free space??? What the heck Apple? This is where things don’t really make sense in an over-the-air download. Mind you, that if you decide to use your computer to download the update, you can sync up your iPad or iPhone and it won’t take up any space on your mobile device. It will just download. *I would highly suggest this option. It’s much better than dealing with all of the deleting that you’d have to do.

The Infamous “Privacy Problems”

This biggest talk of the new update is the “Key Contacts”. This feature allows you to double tap the Home button and see all of the people you’ve recently had a conversation with.  This could be good on one hand. Mainly just to make things a bit quicker in the long run. That being said, it could definitely make things a bit… complicated. What I mean by this is it could cause some problems. Allow me to paint a picture for you. You’ve recently broken up with an ex. You double tap the home button to close an app, and you see that you just recently were texting her, even though the deleted the conversation. Now all those feelings rush back, and you’re tempted to talk to that person again. That and then there is the “Recently deleted photos” issue. Instead of having the photos that you delete be, well… deleted, there is now a “Recently deleted photo” album in your “Pictures” app. Thanks for the reminder Apple, but if we deleted the picture or text conversation, it was more than likely for a reason.

This app is still a welcome update, as the iOS 7 update has been out for a while now, and having this new update accompany the OS X Yosemite update just makes sense. There are still plenty of aspects to love about the new update, but just in case Apple is reading this, these are our complaints. An iOS 8.1 update fixing the issues mentioned would be very welcomed.

New Product Categories From Apple in 2014

Despite the hype, 2013 was actually a pretty calm and quiet year for Apple. 2014 should be a much different and bigger year for the company, who says they have big plans in the works.

During the earlier part of 2013, Apple kept dropping strong hints about new product categories and expanding on the smartphone and tablet market as well. In the last part of 2013, we did see lots of new improvements on older products, but nothing that we could really call new. So, what are these huge new plans that Apple has in store for us? Is a new invention going to turn the whole industry upside down like the original iPhone did?

The iWatch

This isn’t really what I would call “big news”, considering the rumors of this product were floating around for months before it was even officially announced that they were in production. Companies like Samsung have already put out smartwatches (and have seen them fail), so how could this be the big new invention that has Apple so excited? Well, although I think something bigger may be in store, let’s face it… Apple is the kind of company that makes sure their products are perfect before they release them, to the point that it will make people wonder why other companies even tried. When the iPhone came out, cell phones had already been out forever. It wasn’t even the first smartphone, at all. But, it changed the way we looked at phones and smartphones forever. It was so inspiring that it almost felt like cell phones never even existed before that point. Could Apple’s iWatch be the next iPhone?

New, Larger iPhone models

It’s been rumored that Apple is working on iPhones with up to 5-inch screens, and according to The Wall Street Journal, they could even be working on 6-inch iPhones. This is a tough spot for Apple to be in because other smartphone companies are putting out phones with way larger screens, and now, the screen size has become the number one complaint from iPhone users. But that problem is not so simple to fix. Apple would have to find a way for app developers to redesign their apps for use with the new phones, or find a way to program the apps to be responsive to different screen sizes. But chances are, they already have it under control.

Other expected new products

Apple Television? Neat, but hardly a contender.  Moving on: There has been word on an iPad Pro coming soon. Adding the word “Air” to their last iPad seems like a hint toward things to come with newer models. But at the end of the day, consumers aren’t ready to turn to tablets for their everyday computing needs. It seems highly unlikely that this is the new and exciting product that Apple has been hinting at since April of last year, unless it ends up being some sort of super tablet that can do anything a MacBook Pro could do. That would be nuts, but it’s highly unlikely.

So, we already know about some new and exciting things to come from Apple this year, and we will have to keep our eyes peeled for what else is to come. My money on the iWatch though. It may not seem like a big deal now, but it might just change everything you thought you ever knew about watches or smart-gadgets.

Apple’s Maps Fiasco

On what is supposed to be a triumphant week for Apple with the release of their new flagship iPhone 5 and the updated iOS 6, there is one glaring problem that has many of Apple’s customers up in arms, the updated Maps app for iOS 6. Since the release of iOS 6 to the public on Wednesday, there has been criticism from all over the globe decrying Apple’s new mapping application, which takes the place of the standard Google Maps app that has existed on the iPhone from the very beginning.

The replacement of the standard Google Maps application by an app that was built and designed by Apple themselves is just another stage in the ever continuing war between Apple and Google for domination of the world’s mobile market. Apple, with this update to iOS, is attempting to cut as many ties to Google as possible, most notably with the new mapping application and the removal of the standard YouTube video app, which of course is owned by Google.

Much of the criticism of the new mapping application has been about missing locations, such as the Statue of Liberty, and the lack of public transit directions. While the new mapping application offers iOS users free, voice guided turn-by-turn navigation for the first time, a feature already included on android phones, it does not necessarily make up for the many omissions that exist. Part of the problem is the fact that Apple is relatively new to the “mapping game” and that compared to what is arguably the industry standard, they come up a bit short. Apple is confident however that the more people use the iOS 6 application, the better its mapping system will get, just as Google maps improved with millions of users’ input. In the meantime, however, customers of Apple’s popular mobile operating system are not pleased and are demanding Apple fix the problems that exist.

Ultimately it remains to be seen how Apple will update its new Maps application, and if it will indeed improve to the standard that Google Maps has set. It is rumored that Google may release a standalone app that, like they did with YouTube, may satisfy the needs of iOS users. While this will assuredly prolong the war between the two giant tech companies, it may satisfy the customer base that just wants to know where they are going.

After a Victory Over Samsung, Apple Turns Its Sights on Google

Apple vs GoogleFresh off its $1.05 billion patent lawsuit victory over Samsung, Apple is turning its sights on another tech giant, this one a little bigger than Samsung, however. After suing the crap out of Samsung for patent infringement, Apple CEO Tim Cook is reportedly in talks with Google CEO Larry Page about numerous intellectual property matters, including those at the center of the ongoing patent disputes between both companies.

These talks, which have taken place sort of secretively, began last week over the phone and will continue in the coming weeks. In addition to that, discussions involving lower-level executives for both companies are also being conducted. Cook has always said that these patent suits, including the one against Samsung, weren’t about attacking Android, which the late CEO Steve Jobs vowed.

Instead, Cook claims that the suits are to protect Apple’s properties. However, there is a fear now that the ruling laid forth last week has set the stage for additional lawsuits against other Android device makers. According to a statement from Google about the Apple-Samsung verdict, “The court of appeals will review both infringement and the validity of the patent claims.”

Google also added, “Most of these don’t relate to the core Android operating system, and several are being re-examined by the US Patent Office. The mobile industry is moving fast and all players — including newcomers — are building upon ideas that have been around for decades. We work with our partners to give consumers innovative and affordable products, and we don’t want anything to limit that.”

However, Google and Apple are discussing infringement issues in private. One possible scenario, according to sources, that is being contemplated by the two companies could be an actual truce involving disputes over basic Android features and functions. Unfortunately, it is still unclear if the two CEOs are discussing a broad settlement covering a wide array of disputes or are focusing on a more limited set of issues.

With the recent win over Samsung, Apple may be feeling pretty good about itself, which could be why it has decided to take on Google. The problem here is that Google is a little more powerful than Samsung. I’m curious to see if Apple will be able to give a one-two punch right to the face of Android by taking down Google right after defeating Samsung.

Fanhattan Adds HBO, Cinemax, NBC and The CW to Offerings for iOS Users

FanhattanApple’s iPad has become a popular device for watching things like Netflix and streaming television shows through various apps and services. However, the iPad isn’t particularly great at the discovery of the streaming shows, which have a tendency to be scattered about. But fear not, because the latest version of the Fanhattan app takes a small, albeit needed, step toward helping iPad users find and stream their favorite television shows.

The one thing devices like the iPad are missing is a better centralized search-and-discovery dashboard. The Xbox 360 realized that when it added Bing, which allows shows to be found through any of the console’s available video apps. Fanhattan on iOS has been offering a similar functionality with the its database of movie and TV show information, along with a launchpad for video on different services like Netflix, iTunes and Hulu Plus. The only downside is that the selection of video apps that Fanhattan has access to isn’t quite as extensive.

Fanhattan’s latest installment, available on the Apple App Store, adds HBO, Cinemax, NBC and The CW to its repertoire, displaying show availability in searches along with launching the apps from within Fanhattan. While the change is small, it is still important and helps make the app a better catch-all video search tool. In addition to that, the app update adds a personal Watch List feature that tracks show and movie availability.

With this update the total number of video services that Fanhattan can discover increases to 12 and includes: Netflix, iTunes, Hulu Plus, HBO Go, PBS, YouTube, ABC/ABC Family, Cinemax, NBC, Lifetime, Crackle and The CW. However, users are upset at the lack of other services, like EPIX, Adult Swim, Vudu, and Amazon Instant Video.

Bing on the Xbox 360 is still an all-around better service for finding all your favorite television shows and movies, though you need an Xbox 360 for that. If you like to watch your favorite movies and television shows on your iPad then Fanhattan is an app you should definitely look into. The app itself is far from perfect but it is the best offering for iOS devices currently available.
